I shut off my laptop for a time and I felt miserable really… so again I was in the Lords presence instantly and the Holy Spirit told me “I want to help you” and basically I wasn’t focused, once again. I wasn’t sure of what I wanted inside until I asked God to show me what it was. “I just want a change” and he showed me what he already did with my dad and I. “Why don’t you believe I can make that change, in my time. Your father is now my child and listens to my voice. He isn’t who he use to be” and I said “Okay Lord, if you did that, you can definitely do this small change in us too.”
Boy, did my life change in that moment.
Then, I read 3 devotionals by Daughters of the King Ministry. It was really awesome that I needed to hear what these woman heard the Spirit speak..
Wear It Gracefully
“God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NLT)
God is faithful! Yes, He is! He will do it for you! He will do it through you! He will use you to do great things! Yes, He will!
Are you ready to walk in your purpose?
Are you prepared to fulfill your God-given assignment?
Well, if you’re not ready, God is always fired up and ready to go! If you just aren’t sure about it all, God is determined and is very resolved! If you’re scared and shaking in your boots, God is courageous and brave!
If you feel inadequate, God’s grace is abundant towards you! There is nothing lacking in God, and because He is with you, is living in you and is on your side, there is nothing lacking in you. God’s not shaking in His boots or biting His nails over whether you can do what He has purposed you to do.
He’s not in heaven pacing the floor or worried, thinking, “Can they fulfill their purpose? I know I laid a big one on them!” No, He’s not off somewhere worried about you! He’s right there living within you, empowering you and gracing you to get the job done. Through Jesus, He already perfected that which concerns. You are complete in Christ. It’s His power that is effectually working in you. Understand that you are the right person for the job.
Your purpose was created and tailor-made just for you, and no one else meets the qualifications for your assignment nor can anyone wear your designed suit of grace. It was made just for you. Now wear it, and wear it gracefully!
Prayer: Father God, You are so faithful! Thank You for Your work within me and for making me complete in You. You tailor-made my purpose just for me, like a fine tailored suit that only I can wear. You have given me purpose and You have graced me to fulfill it. Thank You Lord. I choose to wear it gracefully. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
– God spoke to me just now through this because I was teaching yesterday (HOP) and even before that we need to pray and out loud. We cry out to God as a bunch of people and become unashamed in that. I wasn’t brave in that time because I usually cry out with a lower tone amongst people but yesterday as a co-leader, I was challenged to speak out bolder! I was shaking and I honestly had no idea what to do in that moment, bit under pressure to come out and say whats inside to Jesus. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for that but Jesus did… he flew like an eagle over the storm in me. Even through the storm he used me, my personal storm – he used my mouth cause I asked Him to help me! In that moment WOW. Only You Lord! Never without you ❤
A Message from God’s Heart
“I am with you. If you look over your life you will see how I was with you at every turn. I am not surprised by what you are facing. I am not shocked by your mistakes. I knew all along and I already planned your way out. You must see that I was with you then and I am with you now. I’m not going to leave you. There’s nothing you can do to make me stop loving you. I was with you before you met that special someone, with you before you knew that person you admire, with you before I placed those people in your life. I was with you from the very beginning when you took your first breath and I Am With You Now.”
Then the Spirit said “Read this title” which is the one above “A message from God’s heart for you” and I needed to hear that as well. That He is with me and that won’t change. That He’s not surprised at what I am facing or what I did face. That he was with me then and with me now!!!!! That nothing I do could stop him from loving me :’) and he was there before he placed every person I know now, then and after in my life.
I Am With You
One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” So Paul stayed in Corinth for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God. Acts 18:9-11 (NIV)
When Jesus sent out his disciples, he reminded them, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20, NIV). When Paul was in Corinth, people were stirred up against him because he preached that their “unknown God” is the only true God and Lord. He opened their hearts and minds with the gospel message, but he also opened himself up to danger and threats from the opposition.
One night, God spoke to Paul in a vision. Clearly, He used the same words with Paul that he used with the disciples: “I am with you.”
The Lord is with us in all circumstances, no matter what each day brings. Whether your day is full of health or sickness, joy or sadness, comfort or pain, God’s promise remains for all who believe in Him as Savior: “I am with you.”
God walks beside us, loving us, supporting us, caring about everything we care about. He strengthens, renews, and fills us with hope. He fights beside us, behind us, before us, and for us, vanquishing our foes. He fills us with peace and serenity in the midst of the storm, holding us until the clouds give way to sunshine.
We can bear up under any circumstance because He has promised, “I am with you.”
Prayer: Lord, I thank You for Your promise. I’m sorry for sometimes being so bogged down with life that I forget that You are always with me. Help me to remember and cling to Your promise. Thank you for saving me and making a way for me to be in Your presence. Thank You for being on my side and by my side every moment of every day. Thank You for being with me. Amen.
My God spoke to me right then and there “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” I was honestly like “OH MY GOSH HELP ME! What do I say??!?!?!” Not even that too, it was more like “How do I project my voice so others can hear me?!?!!?!?! O.O” “Im so little…” “Im so weird” “I… I ” and He roared within me and SPOKE! With such brilliance, authority, grace, power, mighty, fearless and boldly. My Jesus! He did it on purpose! He said “Lioness”. Even I do get bogged down with [life] that I do forget He is always there.. I forget that when he is there he’s looking out for me and helping me.
My God is all consuming, and yeah what a change …
