And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4: 19 NLT).
If Papa doesn’t let a sparrow escape His notice, if He makes sure every bird has something to eat, if He covers the earth with beautiful and colorful flowers, if He knows how many hairs are upon our heads, then He knows every need we have and He will make sure they are met. He has unlimited resources to assist us with, and He loves us so much that providing for us brings Him great joy.
He is not into holding back and only teasing us with a glimpse of what we need. No! He is The God Who Provides, Yahweh Jireh! He knows what we need, even before we need it, and He has already begun the process of making sure it gets to us. It is our responsibility to receive, acknowledge Him, and because He usually provides in excess, to pass His blessing on.
Papa takes care of His children.
I love ya, have a great day!
I shared the following on my personal Facebook page as well as a FB group I belong to. For those of you who gathered dirt into jars to speak love, life and blessings to, joining me on this fantastic prophetic journey, please continue to do so! Do not relent in speaking heaven into the earth. Heaven is joyfully relentless in its pursuit of us, we need to be just as relentlessly pursing the Kingdom’s manifestation here on earth.
Be light. Be love. Speak life. Speak love.
Praying and prophesying the Word of God.
The Word of God is living and active, it does what He sends it out to do and never, ever returns void. There is power in declaring personalized Scripture over people, nations, situations, etc. Our nation is in turmoil and now more than ever we need to declare the word of God.
The following are my Scripture prayers and prophetic declarations for our nation, let us join together and become one unified voice. Where the light is, darkness has no power. Let us shine our lights.
They who dwell in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my nation’s and governmental leaders refuge and fortress;
our God, in Him we will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver us from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover us with His feathers,
And under His wings we shall take refuge;
His truth shall be our shield and buckler.
We shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at our side,
And ten thousand at our right hand;
But it shall not come near us.
Only with our eyes shall we look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Because we have made the Lord, who is our refuge,
Even the Most High, our dwelling place,
No evil shall befall us,
Nor shall any plague come near our dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over us,
To keep us in all your ways.
In their hands, they shall bear us up,
Lest we dash your foot against a stone.
We shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent we shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for our nation and governmental leaders, and to ask that they may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that they may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified them to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered them from the power of darkness and conveyed them into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom there is redemption through His blood, and the forgiveness of sins.
We bow our knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant this nation’s leaders, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that we may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
A while back my husband and I watched a Sid Roth episode in which he interviewed Robert Henderson.
I was intrigued as Robert Henderson was speaking about interceding in the court of heaven. This caught my ear because it was prior to this episode in which the Lord showed me a picture of a heavenly court and Papa as judge. So, I bought his book, Operating In the Courts of Heaven.
There is much to glean from it and I anticipate reading it many times simply to fully understand what he covers. He has a chapter called The Testimony of the Blood in which he describes how the Blood of Jesus answers every accusation Satan has by its very testimony. He also says that blood has a voice, citing the killing of Abel by Cain and Papa saying Abel’s blood cries out to Him. He states “The testimony of blood before God’s throne is very powerful.”
I mention all this because I had an interesting experience on a road trip Monday. My husband and I were driving down to an area south of Syracuse. On the way there, I began to see things I have never seen before. In the natural this particular area is filled with dead trees and swampy. Some of it is open swamp, and another has more dead trees. It is beautiful and serene. I always enjoy being a passenger when we go that route and Monday was no different. As I watched the scenery pass, I started to see it in a different time. I realized, later that day, that the Lord was showing me the history. I saw the land lush, green and filled with activity. There were native people hunting and living on the land. I saw people and family groups, hunting activities, animal kills and the work involved. It was quite detailed and at the same time slightly disconcerting as I realized this was time before settlers arrived. Driving back through Onondaga Nation territory, I began to hear what I could not see. I heard the sorrow of the people of the land; cries, laments and I specifically heard “This is our land, it is not theirs to take.” I heard the weeping of women and children, the shouts of men and the heartbeat of the land. I believe I heard the testimony of the blood.
We know our nation has a very bloody history. We’ve been praying for over a year, speaking love and life to our land over jars of dirt. I am coming to believe it is no coincidence Papa specifically indicated dirt from every state. There was blood shed in the dirt of every state of this nation and He is now directing us to take our intercession into His court on behalf of our country. I still don’t understand fully what this looks like, but I know it is not something to be done alone. Partner with others in your area who are called to intercede on behalf of our nation, pray together, speak life together, bless and do not curse. We are the ones who enforce the heavenly verdict here on earth.
We have transitioned to a higher level, let us go forward and remove ourselves from the battlefield and prepare ourselves for court. We will see change and we will receive answers. We don’t have time to wait.
Thank you for your steadfastness and faithfulness in prayer. I love you all!
As we continue on this intercessory journey, I wanted to remind us to stay objective. God’s ways are not our ways, nor are His thoughts like our thoughts. We can only see what is on the outside, but He knows the thoughts and intents of the heart, He also has a purpose and a plan for all things. We will speak blessing and we will not curse, nor will we allow other to curse around us. Shut those words down and do not come into agreement.
We are in an election year and with still so many candidates running for President this year, the mudslinging has become worse than years past. To be honest, I am worn out from all the finger pointing and nay-saying, I am fed up with hearing what people won’t do and I’m tired of political rhetoric driven by campaign funders. I tell this to Papa too, He still says to bless and pray in His candidate. I do what I’m told.
As I’ve been praying, I’ve been impressed to maintain objectivity in all the goings on across our nation. Papa is full of surprises and I have no doubt His plans will surprise us to the point where we simply have to trust in His purpose. So I encourage you to do the same.
This is definitely going to be a wild ride, but Papa makes all things work for our good. He seats princes on the throne and removes kings from kingdoms, we must remember His hand is working behind the scenes. Our posture of prayer is to be in agreement with heaven, so we must keep our ears open to hear what He has been saying.
Be blessed and continue blessing! I love each and every one of you!
A little leaven leavens the whole lump (Galatians 5:9 NKJV).
I realize it has been a while since I last posted an update, however I trust you are continuing to speak life and love over the jars of dirt representing our nation. I’ve had the above verse on my heart since I woke up this morning.
I try not to watch too much news or read too many articles as the perpetrators of fear and law have been working overtime. The enemy of our soul knows he is defeated yet he desires to fight anyway. I have been thinking of how best to pray in light of the few reports I have come across and I want to share what Papa has spoken to me.
A little leaven leavens the whole lump. Pretty straightforward, right? It basically says a small amount is needed to affect something in its entirety. When looking at the current state of this nation, it would appear some leaven has indeed corrupted the whole. 2016 is an election year with candidates still vying for the top spot and no clear direction from many of them; things may appear bleak. I can assure you Papa knows exactly what is going on here, and He still desires us to bless and not curse.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men (Matthew 5:13).
In baking, salt can prohibit the yeast from causing the bread to rise. Used in large amounts, it hinders growth. Since Jesus told us we are the salt of the earth, we have the power within us to hinder the effects of the leaven affecting our nation. It is time for us to rise up and be salty. Salt also created thirst and preserves. When we are truly being salt, those around us want what we have. For too long we have equated saltiness with condemnation, but the two are not compatible. To be salt the way Jesus called us, we must exercise radical love and grace. Each of us can start within our circles of influence.
As we begin 2016, let us not only make a point to continue to speak love and life over our nation, but to walk salty and sure. We have all we need to do this in Christ, we simply have to exercise it.
This year’s prayer points:
- Speak life and love to your jars.
- Season every conversation with salt, lavishing love on everyone you meet.
- Continue to pray for Papa’s governmental authorities on every level in our elections this year.
- Pray for strength and endurance for all of our national intercessors, those behind the scenes as well as those in front.
I am so blessed to be partnering with you on this journey and I know we will see Papa’s hand at work in His divine time. I love you!
Happy New Year
Papa is speaking to relationships, especially marriages and families. I hear Him say, “‘No’ is an anointed word. You have taken responsibility upon yourself I have not delegated to you. This has caused breakdowns in areas I have given you to build up. Because your attention has been diverted in doing things you were not called to do, what you have sown is now being reaped. You are weary and exhausted because you are moving in multiple directions and unable to focus and rest.
My love for you has not changed. It is now the season for you to rest, to pull back, to reassess and to say “no” to that which I have not assigned to you. Step back from all you are doing and listen for My leading in which to move foward in. Trust Me in that I have already met the needs for those areas you are trying to take care of. This process may be painful for you to do, you have walked too long in ill-fitting shoes meant for someone else, and they have warped your feet and hindered your walk. But I have a new pair of shoes especially made for you. It is My desire that you sit down and rest while I remove the shoes from your feet and heal the wounds they have caused.
Partner with Me as I show you the way and restore your relationships. I have a new path for you to walk and your new shoes have been made specifically for this trek. Always remember, I am not taking things from you, I am taking you somewhere.”
“The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along gright paths, bringing honor to His name” (Psalm 23: 1-3 NLT).
