Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven

I want to encourage everyone reading this, that God is good and He has a good life planned for you, if you let Him be Lord of your life and show you.  Look, I know you have been programmed to want things to happen fast, we all have.  It's a fight to wait on God.  It's a fight to just rest in Him.  But let me encourage  you, I have seen more good coming into my life by just resting and waiting on Him, than I ever have trying to rush and make things happen.  Anything you make happen in your life is shortlived and temporary.  But whatever God brings into your life will stand and nobody can take it away.  A life of peace and joy can unfold if you just give God time to work in your life.  Yeah, I know it's painful and it almost feels like you are being pressed on all sides as you wait.  But the crushing is good, because just like when olives are pressed you get the oil.  So to, must you be pressed for the annointing of the Lord to flow in your life.  As I was sitting here today, I felt the Holy Spirit say to me "Just wait, it's coming".  Once you let go completely is when you really see the flow of God in your life.  I am so close to that point of completely letting go.  I know I'm still holding on to a little bit.  But I'm so close to letting that little bit go.  Even in that, I wait for God to help me let go.

Lord I come to you

Lord I come to you praying that I may know the exceeding greatness of you power toward us who believe.  Lord I'm here tonite praying because I need to be full with you before my day begins tomorrow.  I realize now Lord that I walk around not feeling full of you at times because I'm not taking the time to fill up my "God Tank".  We have this huge tank in us that can only be filled with you.  What happens during the day is I get a taste of you here and there and all it does is wet my appetite but I'm never full.  Never satisfied.  I want to get my fill of you each and everyday, so that when the day comes and I have my family and responsibilities, and ministry I'm not feeling a void or a tank that is half full. I want to have so much of  You God, that it just oozes out of me all the time.  I just need you God,  I need to know that as I'm directing my children, running my home and serving others; You are directing my steps.  When my day starts it goes, it goes for real.  I just want to "go" on a full tank of God. 

One of the things I want to say to all those reading this blog today is "don't let anyone convince you that you are not special".  At times when you are expecting things from the Lord, such as healing, financial breakthrough, or any type of miracle in your life, people can sometimes make you feel like "what makes you think you will get that?"  As if to say you're not special.  Well I am special, and if you belong to God you are to.  I'm special and I have special access to the King and all that the King posseses.  See, because I'm a Joint Heir.  I'm royalty.  See, I am special, so special that Jesus Christ died just for me. He didn't just die for me, He went through extreme pain and embarassment because of all the sins that I would commit and have committed in a lifetime.  Trust me, I'm special.  If God would go through all that for me, then I'm special.  Plus, do you think I'm going to say no to all God's stuff.  The bible call this stuff "His Benefits".  The bible says in Psalm 103:2 to "Forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,.  Do you think you are about to tell me that it is not God's desire to heal me.  He says differently.  I have a friend with breast cancer and God is going to heal her.  I just got this weird calcium deposit on the bone on my wrist and God is going to remove it.  I have issues with my eyesight and God is going to restore that.  I know it, He is going to do it on this side of heaven.  Call me boastful, prideful, whatever you want;  But this is what God says about me.  God's word is true and the bible says that it will not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11).  That means that His word is not going to come back unfullfillled.  He watches over His Word to perform it.  The Lord has so much for you, just receive it in Jesus Name.  You don't have to take it, you just have to receive it.  Just come to Jesus and receive all that He desires to give you.  You don't have to beg and plead with Jesus, He just wants you to receive, just receive, just receive, just receive.

Life inside of you

Jesus said in John 10:10  that He came that that we may have life, and have it more abundantly.  As I was walking outside this morning with my son.  I started thinking about all the things I'm doing, all the things I want to do and how in the world is it going to happen.  I clearly heard in my spirit that it's all gonna come out, you just have to keep pushing.  There is a life on the inside of you, that you need to push out.  Many of us have pushed our goals, aspirations, and dreams for life to the side.  I challenge you to re-visit those things through prayer and see what God has to say.  Sometimes, you dream about life being a certain way for years and years, and nothing happens.  You wonder what God is going to do with all your dreams and aspirations.  Will He do anything with them?  Are they from Him?  I asked all these questions over the years.  Then BOOM! God has got me in this place where He is bringing it all to pass.  But I have to push it out, as I trust Him.  When you are pregnant and in labor, your pushing and it feels like "it's taking forever to push this baby out".  But you know it's coming out now!  Your body is going to push.  During labor, you get tired during the pushing and you feel like you can't push anymore.  But your supporters are saying, you have to push. 

There is life on the inside of you and when God is ready to birth that life, you have to push.   You won't always feel like it, but God is saying "you have to push, the life has got to come out".  This is happening to me right now.  I'm pushing it all out, I don't know how long this season is going to last.  But I know I'm pushing it all out.  Every dream that God has given me for my life, my family, my home, my ministry.............He is telling me to push.  It feels awkward, it feels weird pushing so many things out in so many different areas of life.  But that's how God works.  With God, when it rains, it pours.  But don't get overwhelmed by the pouring out.  Just push, keep pushing.  Trust God to order your steps and keep pushing.  When you feel like you can't push anymore, just remember your almost there, but you have to push.  The Holy Spirit is your birth coach.

Why do we analyze?

As we went through this past week leading up to Easter Sunday and I caught a little bit of the series that's been on called "The Bible".  The thing that has stood out most to me this week is how the Pharisees and the scribes examined Jesus to try to find fault with Him.  But He was a Lamb without spot of blemish to be sacrificed for the sins of all.  However, they just couldn't except it.

They not only examined Jesus but also examined the miracles He had done, the people that had been healed. 

I just kept thinking about "us" and wondering do we analyze God.  Do we examine Him to try to find fault?  Do we examine His Word?

John 1 - The Word Becomes Flesh
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

The real question is:  Do we examine His Word to find truth?  or Do we examine His Word to find fault?  Do we examine His Word to believe Him?  or Do we examine His word to question Him?

Jesus is the Word made flesh.  What were the Pharisees looking for when they questioned Jesus, the Word of God?   Do you know when you question God's Word you are essentially questioning Jesus. 

The bible says that we should study to show ourselves approved,  workmen who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

I believe to "study" is to hide the Word in our hearts.  To examine is to try to find fault and come off as if we are smart.  Which one are you doing?

I'm asking myself, do I take God at His Word or do I question?  I believe there are things in my life where I'm examining rather than taking God at His word.
