Lord, I praise you. For the record, to start my New Year of 2012 off, right. I decree, by the blood of Jesus, that Jesus Christ is my Lord, and savior. I renounce, satan and his lies, and the deceptiveness of the enemy. I love Jesus Christ, and adore Him, and thank Him, for my salvation. I hereby break all curses, from the past. Evil thoughts, that have been thought of me, I render them helpless, and unable, to complete their task. Stopping all curses. No weapon formed against me, will prosper. I am able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I hereby declare to the devil, that my blessings must be restored, and returned to me, as I rebuke the devourer. Every single one of them. This child of God, is going into the enemies, camp, and I am getting back, what the devil has stolen from me. Every lie, every evil that the enemy had intended for me, will find its way, to their originator, for it is their own worst enemy. For those who have hurt me, or stolen from me. Or manipulated systems, people, slandered, to work against me. For God has said, he will bless those, who bless me, and curse those who curse me. Genesis 12:3. God has said it, and I am believing it with all my being, and claiming my heritage, as His child. For I believe, in the power of God, and His presence, overwhelms my life. I claim I have the mind of Christ, and I will not have a spirit of fear. I feel sorry, for the enemy. That he or she may have been deceived, to do harm to me. And, I also forgive my enemies. But you will stand before God, not me, as your judge. So, I am taking ALL of my blessings back. And giving God all the glory, every day, of my life, and into eternity. By the blood of Jesus, I plead. At the cross, of my savior. Who broke all curses for all of us. Amen
Know who you are in Christ, in 2012. You may need to rely on Him. January 1, 2012
Let Gods love, touch you, and remind you, how precious you are. Whatever you are facing, whatever, is challenging you. God can turn it around. You can make it, you can overcome, you can be victorious….then you can say: “LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE FOR ME” Hang on…..with love. With hope, with God fighting your battles. Just love….January 2, 2012
A friend, brought this to my attention, earlier, and it made me think, but we really need to remind ourselves, that God loves us. That His promises, will go forth, that ALL things are possible with God. I pray, that 2012, would bring forth supernatural, great expectations, within my heart, to see who God is, even more so. Faith. May it increase in all of our hearts. As we are always reminded of what Christ did on the cross for us, we can “stir” up those reminders…..Love ya, all…..January 3, 2012
The wisdom of the Lord, spoke very clearly to me today, because, there are so many people, we are in contact with, even family, who have ways, that do not always please us, or habits, or even attitudes, that can just take us out of our peace. And I felt the Lord tell me, only He can change people. Only He can do a new thing, to them, and all we can do is really pray. Pray for that person. Stop trying to change them, and just love them. See the devils intention, is for us to get out of love. To be offended. We have to be careful of that. Because then, we will get out of love, ourselves, and our own prayers will not be answered. No wonder, God tells us to forgive. But, love, will cover a multitude of sins. Love never fails. Because God is love. Just love them, anyway…..And more then anything, let them know you love them. And just pray….JANUARY 3, 2012
It is not being snobbish, nor does it mean you have an attitude, that says, “I am better then you” when you know who you are. You are sons and daughters, of the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Love, has separated you from the Lost. Love, has given you a new chance. Love, God who is Love, has called you, and put a crown on you, and clothed, you in robes of righteousness. Now go out in this world, and know who you are in love…..I plan, on using my authority, and my heritage, to serve my Lord, and others, in love, and even myself. Because this is the fringe benefit, of being the child, and the daughter, of the King of Kings. More then ever, I realize, who I am in Christ. I will never go back to who I was.
AND WILL BE A FATHER UNTO YOU AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, SAITH THE LORD ALMIGHTY. II Corinthians 6:18
Sometimes, I feel like I am dragging myself, or stumbling, to my stepping stones. Weariness, can settle in. I am so glad, I can rest at my Lords feet. Literally, and spiritually, just talking to Him. He refreshes me, with just His sweet spirit, of love. His kindness, His compassion, His gentleman ways. Theres no one like Jesus….No one.
Psalm 62:5 MY SOUL, WAIT THOU ONLY UPON GOD; FOR MY EXPECTATION IS FROM HIM.
Waiting for a miracle to happen. My ship to come in, a blessing, an angel, in disguise, a word of instruction. Being honest, waiting on God….January 4th
We know, JESUS, IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. John 14:6. We know, this for our Salvation. We know, there is no other way, contrary, to what the world may say, or try to diminish. But, do we know, Jesus, is the way, for that healing, for that miracle, for that WAY, for a job, or favor, or that account, or that child, who is not following Christ? Do we know, that JESUS, IS THAT WAY, FOR EVERY NEED? I want to encourage you, and yes myself. Because sometimes, life is hard, and sometimes, we just give up. But, let us never give up on Jesus. He is the WAY. And He gives us direction, insight, wisdom, and CAN make a way, where there was no way. Be encouraged. Love ya. January 5th 2012
YOU KNOW, I KNOW, SPEAKING ABOUT JESUS, OR SHARING ONES FAITH WITH ANOTHER PERSON MAY BE DIFFICULT, IT MAY BE CHALLENGING, IT MAY NOT EVEN BE POPULAR. BUT ITS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE THINK, OR WHAT WE FEEL, OR EVEN IF WE OFFEND, BECAUSE IT IS NOT POPULAR. ITS ABOUT WHAT CHRIST DID ON THAT CROSS FOR EACH ONE OF US. AND IF YOU UNDERSTAND IT, YOU WILL SHARE. BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN CHANGED, TRANSFORMED. YOU KNOW, YOU WERE SNATCHED FROM THE JAWS OF HELL, FROM THE DEVILS TOUCH. I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, THATS WHY I SHARE. ONLY JESUS CHANGED ME….JANUARY 6TH
I have never seen anybody change, when your critical, and mean. Even if it is the truth….
I have learned, life, is a test. And these tests, can determine, whether or not, we advance, or fail, the tests God can give us. I have learned this, just to summarize it. Keep it honest, in the sight of God. Don’t cut corners. Don’t take anything, in any way, that does not belong to you. And always, always keep love in it. Make love the priority. Keep God in it. As you do, with just this, God can make a way. God can change it. These are just hindrances, the devil will use, just to stop us. But you can change it…with God. I just feel God speaking this to me….because He tested me. Yikes. I think I passed though….:>) Whew….He will show me, if I did not. He corrects us. Because He loves us. January 8th 2012
Gods grace, is so kind. But, I want to be grateful to God, and to others. Sometimes, you can miss a chance, to do that, and the timing can hinder you. Have you ever really noticed, when you are grateful to God, your problems seem smaller? Maybe because being grateful, is all about the Fathers business, as He is about yours. Being grateful, to others, is His business too. January 8th 2012
So today is a new day. Today, I will try and do that which is right in the sight of the Lord. Today, I will hope for the best. Today, I will trust God. Today, I will be careful, to walk in love, and not get offended. Today, I will watch, and pray….Today is the day, the Lord, has made, I will rejoice, and be glad in it. January 9th 2012
Do you think it is coincidence, that TEBOWS name has the word BOW in it? GOD is using that name, to teach people to WORSHIP GOD. Its not coincidence. God has a plan. God is using one persons life. One person, after reading Tebows testimony, who could have been aborted. Tebow, honors God. He acknowledges God. When he “bows” to him. It shows worship to God. Never, underestimate the power of God, or how He uses us. Never. Life is valuable. Worship God, even now where you are, for who you are. You are precious, and loved by God. January 10th
This is how my faith works. My faith, makes me stronger in Christ, to know who He is, even more so. Thereby, making me know who I am in Christ. Glory to God, my King. January 12
I hope, this is an indication that my faith, is growing, that I know more then ever, who God is. I am not phased by my circumstances. GRACE. My Mac computer crashed, I have no writing jobs coming in. Nor any speaking engagements. But I give thanks to my God. For He is able in all things. Glory to God. It will get better…..
The world, media, movies, can mess a person up spiritually, denying Christ, the truth. Don’t let the world dictate a lie to you. Read your Bible. Daily, you may not even see the difference. But remember this, God is spirit, and those that worship him, worship Him, in spirit, and truth. Your spirit will change, within, you may not see it, but if you come to God like a child believing. That Christ is the Lord, your spiritual eyes will be opened. You will be changed. Forever. January 13th
May the meditation of my heart, and the words of my mouth, bring glory to God. Influence, by love, by kindness, by compassion, by truth. Gods truth. May this be my goal, daily for the Kingdom of God. For the sacrifice of Christ. My Lord Jesus. His sacrifice was so great, I need to be this way, to give him honor, for what He did on the cross for me. Living a life, that is in position, to further the Kingdom of God, for others as well. Love. That is who He is. That is who I need to be. January 14th.
This is a great mystery to me. But not to God. There are people, and I observe, they have attained influence, power, and authority. They are in position, more then ever, to give a word in due season. Even here. And yet their silence, is heard more then their words of praise. Or even guidance, to some, who may look up to them. I do not understand this. I do not understand, why some are blessed, and do not share, for others as well. To help them grow. The opportunities go by….What good is success, if it is not given to God in glory? Or to help someone, who tries. Do I judge? No. For I know not why. That is why it is a mystery to me. But I still see. And it makes me sad. What does God see?
Lord, I ask, that you use whatever, I have gone through, or attain, for your glory. My prayer. Could it be yours too? http://scripturefoodforthought.wordpress.com/
I know, I am bold, I know, I am someone, who shouts out, like the crier in the street, “Repent. Seek God.” I only pray Jesus, and love will be seen. Instead of me. Because really, He is the one that needs to be seen in all of us….January 15th
If you are a Christian, you know, Christ told you, to go out into the world, and preach the gospel. So, we all have a ministry, we all want to share the good news of Jesus Christ, but if we only concentrate on our own ministry, we lose a very valuable lesson. Its not our ministries, its HIS. So when you see, or hear a good word, from someone else. God wants to use you to further it. Share it, copy, and paste a link, and send it to someone. Bring it to someones attention, especially that person, God is prompting you who needs it. Help someone else, in their ministry. So, he can bless your calling, your ministry. Its really all about what Christ did for us, and iron, sharpens iron. Do this, and see the difference……https://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com
Spiritual battles, bring forth, a strength an endurance, to seek God, all the more reason. For then you learn, God is fighting your battles. When you know that you know who God is, and that you are the apple of His eye, you can boldly enter into your destination. His plan for you. The devil, would love for any of us to give up. But now is the time, to keep on, for the Lord. Thats my goal. January 18th
This is how you demand respect, not by demanding it, but by being the example of Love, that treats others, the way, you want to be treated. Not shabby, not harsh, but with kindness, with “kid gloves” with patience, and politeness, with sincere honesty, and humbleness. Yes, I said humbleness. For the Lord, lifts the humble, and He turns from the proud. If you do not do these things in Love, yeah you might get respect, but you will get hate too. You might just see those stones you throw, come back at you…..January 20th
Today, is the Sabbath, and I know many people do not acknowledge it, or even give it much thought. But God did. And He has specifics, about the sabbath, that He wants honored. Without trying to get religious on you, or even legalistic, but by grace, I hope you would think about some of the things, God has said about it. About blessing you in it. Maybe do some research your own research in the Bible. About honoring Him in it. I pray, your day, your Sabbath day is blessed. I love you in Christ. I love you ALL alot, God has given me, His heart for you, in the sense, that you would know, how special you all are. How precious you are. To Him. In His Love, Elena
We all have moments, where we feel strong, we all have moments, where we feel weak. But, if we hold onto who God is, we can get through things. I think sometimes, the most simplest thing we can do, is just to trust God through everything. Through, good and bad times. Being in love, being love, like He is, is something, that takes daily practice. Not just once, but always. Constantly, being consistent, in Christ. We must keep our banner of love over us, and in us, by His spirit. January 22
It never ceases to amaze me, when people say, they are Christians but act like the devil. How can we say, we are Christians, if our fruit, and actions, reflect, discord, anger, offense? Wheres the Love? So glad my savior, is my shield, and protector, but I know, I have to always be aware, of who I am in Christ. And who Christ is in me. He will not let me get away from His love.
Priorities…hmmm. Making Gods priorities, mine. So HE will consider my priorities. So whats on Gods agenda, that I need to make important in my life? To be a reflection of Him? To show Him, I value, whats on His heart? I know….yes, it is so important. Love from the Father. Means I have to be an expression of Love too. Thank You Holy Spirit. Yes, this is….Priority #1.
I ALWAYS WANT TO BE REAL WITH GOD, AND WITH OTHERS. THE DEVIL IS A LIAR. THOSE ARE CHARACTERISTICS, I DO NOT WANT. January 29th 2012
You may not understand God, and His ways now. But obey Him, now, for your blessings tomorrow. Knowing tomorrow is not promised to anyone.
