A Profound Revelation

  Good Day,

I was supposed to post this blog on the 27th but certain circumstances came up. But it must have been a good thing because up until then I didn’t know what I was going to talk about. But yesterday during Bible Study I had profound revelation revealed to me. In Kevin Zadai’s book ‘Days of Heaven on Earth’ I was reading page 73, which is in chapter 5, Phase One: Revelation.

Now rememer, I posted about Zadai’s books previously so  you know I have already had this book for sometime, since January. I had stopped reading it during March 2017. For some reason I couldn’t understand a certain part of the book, and I will be honest and say, since the second chapter which is most of the meat; it talks about the personality of Jesus Christ. But I had continued to read the book even though some parts caused me to have a headache.

And you know what they say when it comes to finding wisdom, you can’t come unprepared, you need to ask the Lord to open your eyes and your heart.{ Psalms 146:8 (NKJV) The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; The Lord raises those who are bowed down; The Lord loves the righteous.}

I will be honest and tell you since late April I felt as if I was falling down the rabbit whole at a break neck speed. Lots of things have happened to culminate to the point I felt like giving up on every hope I had. I quit my job because of unfair workplace situations that were becoming to much to peacefully handle. I applied to other jobs over the course of May to June and they didn’t work out as I had hoped.

I felt all too defeated to do much of anything, so I told myself, “I don’t think God has anything out there for me to do.” I got so tired in my spirit man that I literally saw myself waste away. I became so lazy, My body wasn’t as healthy as it was before and my mental state was shot. I believe I had finally reached my last ounce of hope and it had left me.

All this time I kept telling myself I should pick up this book and reread it and this time get wisdom and understanding.
{Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Proverbs 4:5-8}

So one God-led day, Sunday July 9th, I was feeling the effects of tumultuous feelings again. All the same feelings I had previously felt for two whole months. I am usually on kitchen duty so I head out there before service ends and help make lunch. I was then called up for a ‘special’ prayer. No one knows that the prayer I had today was amazing-saving-grace. It was what broke the chains of the horrible feelings that kept bombarding me.

I was finally able to see the revelation of such actions on July 9th, 2017. That Monday, I pulled out my ‘Days of Heaven On Earth’ book and started reading. And you know what I got past the second chapter. I am amazingly in love with me Savior and I now have bettered my experience with bringing my Heaven On Earth as Zadai writes through the book. I am more intentional about everything I do, because I do things with intention towards my Lord and Savior.

Page 73 of Days of Heaven on Earth, Zadai’s eyes are opened to a vision where Jesus appears as a guest speaker for a church and He begins to introduce His plans for the people, church, community and city, until people start questioning, freaking out, walking out!

A little further and Jesus is probably looking at this crowd as if they turned into chickens with there heads cut off. ‘With tears in His eyes, He asks the congregation, “I thought that My Father said that this is about Me and My Kingdom? When did it become about you and your kingdom? I have plans for this area and you’re included!

I just want to say: I’m surprised I didn’t have this revelation before, but everything happens in due time and season.

We don’t need our own hands soiled works and our kingdom. WE JUST NEED TO LET JESUS DO WHAT HE NEEDS AND WE WILL INHERIT WITHOUT THE HEAVY LIFTING, and by heavy lifting I mean destiny writing and storytelling. The battle is already won. Jesus Christ, the Messiah, already sits at the right hand of God and it waiting for the day to come back for his people and then to fight the last fight. We just need to follow direction and instructions.

>1 Cor. 15:25; Eph. 1:22; Matt. 22:44; Mark 12:36; 16:19; Luke 20:42, 43; Acts 2:34, 35; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:13<
The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

I am included no matter what plans the Lord has for my region of dwelling, within my church, within my family and within my persons. I have to obey, listen, watch, and not grieve the Angels who work the military branch of Heaven and the Holy Spirit who works within and around me.
I have set my priorities right. I pray, may God see my heart and know me inside and out and find me blameless of the things of this world. Because Jesus said, “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” John 17:20-23
I abide in the Lord, the Lord abides in me as does God in Him and the Lord in God. We are one and when we line up to perfect will of the Father Himself, we are conquerors in all the desires of our hearts, in all our temptations, in all our spiritual fighting with the principalities of the air and forever to reign with the Lord Jesus Christ.
When Jesus Christ sets out to accomplish something, He always has me in His thoughts. I don’t go unchecked for very many seconds, and I mean that.

Being Self Aware

Howdy!

The last Sunday in June, I had to preach/teach a special lesson. A lesson, that usually doesn’t get put into words very often, but we learn it along the way. We struggle with these things because we are always growing, but when they are placed out on a line and we can see it with our eyes, we begin to see them for what they really are.

Applicable key points to why and how being self-aware of your life markers; the things that make up your life and your surroundings, can help you see the world as God sees it.

What the devil wants us to see is the things that we want- that we can get with out God-, not need from God. He also makes us focus on the things that bums us out instead of giving them to God and focusing on how great God is in seasons and storms and out of them. But if we keep a constant check on us and our surroundings, we can’t miss step with God or have disappointments which are also “missed appointments”. Let’s read on…

Being Self Aware

  1. You can’t harm yourself or anyone else. [No harm, no foul] 1 Chronicle 16:22 + Psalms 105:15, Proverbs 3:30, Acts 28:5, Romans 13:10
  2. It means to “Gut Check”, spirit check, just evaluate your progress and perspective. [Gut check, Spirit check] Haggai 1:7
  3. Perspective is key… Always keep your focus on the things around you, how they affect you (make you feel) and your reaction to them. [Look through the eyes of heaven] 2 Corinthians 5:7
  4. Priorities are key… Always reorder them. Life happens, so things change, but remember God doesn’t. [Make time for what really matters] Matthew 6:33, Romans 12:2

(5-9)[What you do on the inside affects the outside] 2 Corinthians 11:22-33, 12:1-6 Ephesians 6:10-18

  1. Physical Awareness of your relationship with how you treat and take care of yourself, your rewards from God, and other people.
  2. Spiritual Awareness of how you treat yourself, Jesus, and other people.
  3. Mental Awareness of the enemy’s attack to your mind, and how you handle that with the whole armor of God.
  4. Emotional Awareness of how you react in life to situations good and bad. God gave us emotions to experience life. Not to harm life, memories, or people around us.
  5. It’s okay to feel tired, exhausted, frustrated and so on… Just don’t stay there.
  6. Balance is key, Jesus is key. Jesus never said “I am tired of being the good guy. I’m tired of carrying you, to pick you up when you fall, and to go over the same topic with you for the hundredth time.” [Find your Jesus center] John 16:33
  7. Move on! Your issues won’t be issues forever. Choose to solve the ones you can with the knowledge of Christ and give the rest you can’t solve to Christ. [Forgive and Forget] Matthew 6:12, Psalms 86:5
  8. Be wise with your words! Satan has only a few tactics in which to tempt and harm us, while God gave us simple victory with our words. So use them wisely. A good way to think about it is to say, God wants us to use Jesus wisely, since He is the Word that was is the beginning. [Wise men use wise words] Ephesians 5:4, John 1:1

Kevin Zadai-It’s Supernatural Network

Good Day,

It’s been too long a wait. I recently listened to a radio pod of this on ISN, and will be watching the video soon. This really encouraged me to not let the “disappointments” take over my emotions, because technically, I was the one who didn’t align myself to the will of God.

Things I pulled away from just listening:

♥Don’t Forget Ephesians 6:12-13
AND PROTECT YOUR SOUL!!!!

  • 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
  • 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
    • When I was in High-school (Grades 9-12) I always had a set schedule and I followed it for the most part. I would say Psalms 23 in the mirror every morning after I was dressed, before breakfast. I look at it now and thank God for the diligence I had learned in that season at age 14, because believe it or not, little things like that gave me a foundation for my day. It put me out of harms way and kept me on the path running towards Jesus.
      • Kevin Zadai learned that repeating God’s Word over your life lifts and completely, utterly destroys the devils lies that he has thrown at your soul through your life time. #stayprayedup
      • So, start small! Choose a scripture that works for you. For me it was Psalms 23 and it was helpful to me then. Still is now but when you grow you need to move on to the next step. And for me that is Ephesians 6:10-18. Psalms 23 helped me to remember and imprint on my soul and mind that God is my shepherd, protector, provider, caretaker, you name it. He keeps us! And as a searching Christian teen, that was all I needed to start. I am no a young “adult” (at least that’s what I’m told☺) and learning to keep myself through daily and spiritual warfare is a must. Not just for me but for everyone as well. Satan, the devil, can come in and in a blink of an eye, steal everything from you (deams, hopes, wants, needs) and then cauterize you; not the good kind of burned flesh so you can stop the bleeding, but the kind that leaves you in pain and wishing you had went to Jesus, the good doctor who can heal all wounds.

When you were a baby christian you used crawling scriptures, now you are an adult christian you need to use walking (running) scripture.

♥Jeremiah 29:11-13
JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH!!!

  • 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace,
  • and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
  • 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
  • 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
    • I am once again humbled and yet awe inspired once again by the lover of my heart. This scripture isn’t preached with enough heart these days. Because God loves me, enough to end his son to die on a cross so that I can come free to the throne of grace, and in grace. Jesus’ loves me so much to cheer me on, give me advice, wisdom, and still put up with my wishy-washy ways, and yet when I come to my sense, He is still there at that place where I walked away from waiting for my return, because His words never come back void.
    • My prayers are always answered. If we keep on praying, don’t think that nothing is happening; in the spirit everything produces fruit. Don’t just look for the spectacular, look for the small rumbling in life knowing that the Angels have to get through the evil spirits and principalities in the air, and eventually with patience your answer will be there.

Never stop believing. When you give up before the blessing reaches you, you stop your blessing. Satan tries to stop you before your blessing comes. Ultimately, the devil knows we will pray, We Will Pray! If he can’t stop us from praying the blessing into action, he can stop us from grasping it in our hands.

♥Luke 12:12
The Holy Spirit is a Winner!!!

  • 12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”
    • There are so many scriptures to choose about the Holy Spirit, but this one gives us the gist of what we “ought” to do.
    • Kevin Zadai learns that the Holy Spirit does not know what losing, lack, debt, is or means. He does not entertain, believe, understand, what these things are. He is a winner through and through. He sets forth to accomplish and does. Nothing comes back void. So when you #stayprayedup you keep a straight line with the Holy Spirit and you can accomplish many things across the board and in all realms.

Set aside you understanding, and let the Holy Spirit lead you.
Read, 1 Corinthians 2

I have received a lot of perspective from this and hope the rest of you will too.

Sin & Righteousness

Good Day,

A commentary in my  Bible, The Evidence Bible, by John MacArthur refering to Romans 5:20 says,

“God’s grace cannot be faithfully preached to unbelievers until His Law is preached and man’s corrupt nature is exposed. It is impossible for a person to fully realize his need for God’s grace until he sees how teribly he has failed the standards of God’s Law. It is impossible for him to realize his need for mercy until he realizes the magnitude of his guilt.”

It’s important to know this isn’t just for others who aren’t believers in Christ Jesus, but for ourselves. Many times it takes us to go back and examine ourselves. We are humans. We have flesh and spirit; they war with each other as it says in Galatians 5:16-17. It’s alright to know you are human, because God knows this and we have an advocate who sits at His right hand, Luke 22:69. But that doesn’t mean to continue in sin.

It means to get a grip on with your life. God did not make us with a folly spirit. Most assuredly he has given us free will, Galatians 4:31. I’ll tell you, I am not a perfect person.

“STOP, WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?!”

Yes, I just said that. If I was perfect I wouldn’t have a story to tell. I wouldn’t be relateable. I would be speaking hot air constantly and this blog, my life, would be meaningless. Nothing would mater and Satan would have won me over. If I have nothing to live for, how can I know the standards that were set by God?How would I know right from wrong. Well first, God set the standards (all the commandment, not just the ten) for me and you, for us. I wouldn’t be writing meaningful blogpost, singing meaningful praise & worship, leaning on righteous faith for my business, living, if I did not live by the standards set.

We don’t make the standards, God does.

We don’t have to do the hard work of thinking and thinking about what is right or wrong. God has already done that for us. We don’t have to do the hard work. God always lays down the foundation for us. Now, we do have to do the work, and God never ever asks us to do the work in our own strength. He tells us to rely on Him and only Him, Isaiah 40:29 and Psalms 105:4.

When we realize we aren’t the true saints we need to be in God, that’s when the real change begins. It’s hard, I know it is, but the work and the final product; the reward, is ever so sweet. It is amazing to finally take the plank out of your own eyes(Matthew 7:3-5) before someone else and see the hurt and grime built up on your vessel(1 Thessalonians 4:4), the carrying piece of the Holy Spirit.

We aren’t perfect, in fact our canvases were made blank so God can write our stories in its great magnificent detail. God is just that good. Remember to check yourself daily. Don’t be caught off guard ever, in as God comes back and you are not ready(Luke 21:36).

God’s Timing

Hey,

c50ce5bd99b27a7a1f19b5262bc6c40fI came across an old Instagram post from Heather Lindsey just yesterday while skimming through my note3 picture feed. The picture to the left was from last year and I honestly didn’t thing it would pertain to any part of my life but, as a child of God… yes! What I mean to say is, I don’t have randoms(boyfriends or lovers on the side). Never dated actually. Never kissed a boy. Never held hands with a bow either (male family members don’t count).

I guess you can say I was never really interested and that isn’t a bad thing. Well the days where I was a high schooler is now gone and so are my “supposed” college days. I’m 23 years old and I don’t feel like my biological clock is ticking, but I do feel like everyone who was in my birth-year; those I went to school with, I feel like there life is going somewhere and I’m stuck right where I’ve always been and that’s by myself, by little ole me.

I’m not bothered by my “single-ness”. I have never been. I think most people who can relate to me agree. It’s not the single, the plus one(not), that is the problem. It’s the perspective of seeing someone else life move on and your stuck.

Let me repeat that: It’s perspective.
(A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.)

The fact that I am looking through the looking glass that is so clouded {envy, jealousy} I can’t see the truth, but I see the mirage. I see what the devil wants me to see. I see the happiness of others but not their struggle to get there. I see their green grass, but not the amount of time and hard earned tending to  that green grass. We see people happy, and yet don’t know why or how, yet we want what they have.

A few days ago, I believe this past Monday, I was going through a few I was reading up on RecessionistaCornelious Lindseyand some others as I got through drifting through a few random IG’s. I came across a lot of men who followed God with all their heart and focused on him with a perspective that couldn’t be shaken from years of learning and learning on God.

God showed me and told me as plain as day: There are plenty of them {men of God} out there who live for me, if I wanted you to be taken, I would have let you be seen.

God’s will for my life has to be within my perspective- my point of view. If I don’t live for God, I won’t be happy. If I don’t give up the worldly desire, I won’t be happy. I won’t be spiritually fulfilled, spiritually happy, spiritually satisfied. If God isn’t your perspective- your point of view, then forget about happiness.

No, happiness won’t be the first thing you experience on your walk with Christ. Freedom will be. Then aching, then pain, then rest, then more refining, then more rest, then battling, then breaks in war, then more war, then one day it would be settled. Everything will be fine, dandy even. Satan and his demonic army will be put to rest and you to eternal freedom and happiness.

So, I don’t look at people the same. I look at them how God would want me to see them. I am hidden by God. No man can come for me unless God wants them too and I am totally fine with that. That just leaves God and Me for a while, a good while, and that’s just what I need to keep my perspective right. Plus, I’m a pretty spoiled princess, I’ve been with God for far too long, that man who is meant for me has to be more than average, but a prince in the making.

MAMBI

Hey Everyone,

Today’s blog is on a Haul. A planner haul. I am excited to present my new Mambi Planner.

I spent a good $55, rounded, on this whole haul. I was planning on getting an Erin Condren at Staples, but luckily they would have it that there is no Staples in the Heart of Texas, where I live, that carries Erin Condren. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found my love with MAMABI: Create 365, The Happy Planner.

Earlier in the year I was going to get a MAMBI, but my local Michael’s sold out. So this fateful day,  I went to Hobby Lobby about fifteen miles from where I live and voila, the beauty was there.   In all it’s glory, it was there and now, it is here in my hands. But thank goodness, with 40% discount on one regular priced item, I got it for $15. My whole day was made.

Thank you MAMBI. What I also love about MAMBI is the clear idea that this company was founded on good principles; GOD! I love it when a company can come outright and say they believe God has helped through this and has His hands in their midst. I am a proud MAMBI owner. Hop on over to Me & My Big Ideas for your own planner and extras, not to mention to read their blog.

Check out some more pics.

NIrV Study Bible for Kids by Zondervan

 NIrV Study Bible for Kids
Published by Zondervan

This new international readers version is derived from the NIV version, just for young readers. It’s a very creative study Bible that has any devotional qualities than most other young reader bibles. This is approx. for ages 6-10 years old. I love the devotionals for one but what is very ‘iffy’ is the crass or so language for certain situations, you probably wouldn’t want to give a 6 through 10 year old this Bible, but a pre-teen and sprouting teenager… this is good for them.

I really like this Bible. It’s easy to read, maybe to straight to the point, but it is amazing with its devotional qualities. I’ve always had a love for devotional Bibles because they give more of an in-depth reading and learning experiences to the Bible. The study tools are practical and that is great for the age range of this Bible. The commentary is also very interesting, it is always god to get a different perspective on broad subjects. This Bible came hard-cover. I gave my niece a small Bible cover I had bought a few years back on CBD.com, the fit is nice and snug. The typeface and font is decent for the size of this Bible.

I would highly recommend this Bible for any upcoming pre-teen to a new aspiring high-schooler.
