Exhortation: The Advance – Press On!

What is the vision? What is the goal for which you press on, for which you aspire? Has the Lord spoken something into your heart that you hope to achieve ? Is there a plan and a purpose of God you know about that has been revealed through a prophet? 
I say press on! 

Do not allow failures or situations of the past to hold you back or cause you to regress. Resist the voices of people who have caused you to doubt your ability to achieve anything from being amplified in your mind repetitively. 

In the bible, James says 

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7 KJV)

We can only resist the enemy by bible study and meditation. This is because we are strengthened and revived in believing that what is impossible for man to achieve is possible by God (Luke 18:27/Matt.19:26).
The Word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our pathway (Psalm 119:105) and enables us to see the way forward clearly and gives us Elohim God’s wisdom in how to advance. 

Christ Yeshua is wisdom personified and by his death, burial and resurrection, divine power from God hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3 KJV). We are therefore able to press forward and advance into higher heights and deeper depths in God.

Brethren, let us have a steadfast resolve to press on as the Apostle Paul when he said 

“…I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”(Phil. 3:13-14KJV).

Have a blessed day in Him

I Am Home

Thank you LORD for another day! I pray God’s blessings & protection on whoever is reading this & that Holy Spirit will lead them higher & deeper into the realms of God’s Kingdom to communion with Him & receive greater revelation from Him. In Jesus name Amen!

“1After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” (Rev 4:1KJV)

Prayer of Thanksgiving & Exaltation (Praise) unto God. (Based on Psalm 125, 126)

Merciful Father,

We give you thanks and praise for you have delivered us from captivity, that we may sing praises to you, that our mouths may be filled with laughter.
People see what you have done and say among themselves “the LORD has done great things for them” (Ps.126:2).

May some who are enemies be like Rahab LORD and turn from their wicked ways, when they hear of your might and power in our lives.

May they show us favour and accept your Right Hand and be set free, washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus. 

We are more than conquerors! 

We give you thanks and praise! We shout for joy because “the LORD has done great things for us and we are glad” (Ps. 126:3).

When we sowed in tears there were times when we thought that we would never overcome. 

But how dare we, for we serve a God who is oh so faithful, one who never changes. He is the same yesterday today and forever more. 

You said in your word “those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.”(Ps 125:1).

We trust you LORD! 

You are our Protector, always surrounding us as the mountains surround Jerusalem.

Father you decreed that “the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous” (Ps.125:3).

You have preserved us from evil, from the decrees of the powers of darkness by your mighty power. 

May your presence abide with us forever more!

In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.

Wisdom Speaks at Summer’s Berthing (Poem)

Whether the sky’s face is grey and its tear drops fall daily on the earth as though in remorse, Summer is on her berth and is here to stay her course.

It’s a season we judge not by her countenance whether bleak or gay. Her worth is vast and more precious than meets the eye so mortal man is not fast to judge.
Listen to Wisdom speak.

Wisdom proclaims her breaking forth is as the dawning of a new day; An era to arise and shine as the sun does beam it’s rays on a Summer’s day.

 A time to wear a smile of contentment and be clad in the cloak of gladness sown in Spring from a tapestry of God’s victories in the Autumn of oppression and the Winter of discord.

Wisdom speaks of her as the season to reflect on God’s truths so as to deflect from falsehood, discard the unproductive and disregard the immotive.

By her, productive and active shall you be. Able to invest and harvest not in haste, but in God’s heartfelt rest.

Listen to Wisdom speak: “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.”(1)

His speech of renewal at Summer’s berthing until she departs, is what Wisdom hears from Father in every season and sees Him doing for whatever reason.

“Wisdom is the Principle Thing” (2)

Listen to Wisdom Speak.

A poem in Book: Our God Reigns: Inspirational Prophetic Christian Poetry

Cycles of the Beloved’s Life (Romans 8:28)

Beloved of God, the cycle of abuse, cycle of offence are cycles to refuse. 

The cycle of restraint, cycle of defeat are cycles to resist.

For he who saved you, Yeshua your Lord has planned for you peaks and troughs for victorious outcomes to the glory of God.

Up times are times to praise God with hands raised and doing His bidding, with hearts grateful and testifying.
Down times are not times to rot but to access what you’ve got,and to thank God, He has saved and blessed you who was once lost.

The cycle of peace, cycle of hope, are cycles of God to embrace.

The cycle of sanctification, cycle of breakthrough, are cycles of God’s restoration.

Beloved of God, in the cycles of life  “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”(Romans 8:28)
