WHAT IS IT REALLY?

WHAT IS IT REALLY?

 

THE LORD KNOWS WHAT IT REALLY IS ON THE INSIDE OF US

THE LORD KNOWS WHAT IT REALLY IS ON THE INSIDE OF US

 

Sometimes we do not label, define or call certain attitudes, emotions or behaviors what they actually are.

Instead to make them more palatable, acceptable and to help us feel more comfortable about having them, or to minimize or even eliminate conviction, accountability and the necessity of change, we call them something “similar” yet “different”.

When dealing with situations, it is prudent to ask ourselves, what is it really?

 

WHAT IS IT REALLY?

NEED OR GREED?

LOVE OR LUST?

LISTENING OR HEARING?

CONCERN OR CONTROL?

PROTECTION OR UNABATED FEAR?

ADMIRATION OR IDOLIZATION?

ASPIRATION OR COVETOUSNESS?

REPENTANCE OR GUILT OFFERING?

OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF HEART OR FROM AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE?

FOR MY SAKE OR FOR YOUR SAKE?

WHAT IS IT REALLY?

 

Sometimes we do not label, define or call certain attitudes, emotions or behaviors what they actually are.

When dealing with situations, it is prudent to ask ourselves, what is it really?….then with the help of the Lord make the appropriate adjustments.

SELAH!

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

 

A young man at my church named Khadn ministered “I Can Only Imagine” in church yesterday and it was a blessing.

The song has been in my spirit all day so I just decided to post it.

Hope it blesses you.

Kim

 

“I CAN ONLY IMAGINE” – BY MERCYME

 

“Do not let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.
In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places (homes). If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you.
And when (if) I go and make ready a place for you, I will come back again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.”

(John 14:1-3 – Amplified Bible)

TGIF – \O/ – PRAISE THE LORD!

TGIF – \O/ – PRAISE THE LORD!

 

TGIF

TGIF – \O/- PRAISE THE LORD!

 

This post is for all those who had a hard week and truly feel like TGIF – THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY! – \O/

Instead of ending your week all drained and down, end it with a praise and show the enemy that in spite of what you’ve been through, you will bless and praise the Lord anyhow!

Let the enemy know that he will not steal your joy and your hope is still in the Lord Who will change your circumstances in due season.

So, whatever you are doing, pause and take a praise break.

Take a moment to praise your God first for who He is and secondly for what He has done, is doing and will do in your life.

Take a praise break:-

Because praise is a powerful weapon of war against the enemy.

Because praise gets God’s attention.

Because when we praise God, it is an act of obedience and a demonstration of our love for God.

Because God inhabits the praises of His people.

Because once we begin to praise God, it magnifies God in our minds and in our spirits and our focus shifts from our circumstances to God; to who He is, what He has done, and what He can do, and this builds our faith.
Because praise lifts our eyes from the battle to the Victor and this gives us the assurance that no matter what, the victory is ours.

Because praise creates joy which gives us the strength, hope and power we need to endure any circumstance until the manifestation of our victorious end.

Because it’s Friday!…..TGIF….\O/

Hallelujah!
Praise God in his holy house of worship,
praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power,
praise him for his magnificent greatness;
Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise him with castanets and dance,
praise him with banjo and flute;
Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
praise him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!
Hallelujah!

(Psalms 150 – The Message Bible)

TGIF – PRAISE THE LORD! – \O/!

FULFILLMENT FOR THE THIRST DEEP INSIDE

FULFILLMENT FOR THE THIRST DEEP INSIDE

"ON TOP OF THE WORLD AND EMPTY INSIDE"

“ON TOP OF THE WORLD AND EMPTY INSIDE”

“For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”

(Jeremiah 2:13 – KJV)

“My people have committed a compound sin:
they’ve walked out on me, the fountain
Of fresh flowing waters, and then dug cisterns—
cisterns that leak, cisterns that are no better than sieves.”

(Jeremiah 2:13 -The Message Bible)

 

Where are you seeking fulfillment today for the thirsty longing that exists deep in your soul?

Take a minute and be honest with yourself.

Are you looking to Christ, the fountain of Living Water, who ever emits fresh, satisfying Water that can soothe your parched and thirsting soul?

Or have you looked away from Him and are digging cisterns elsewhere for yourself with the hope of finding water that will quench that thirst deep down inside?

Cisterns of increased riches, material gain, a nicer home, clothes or car,

Cisterns of greater career accomplishments, educational achievements, business success, social notoriety, or ministry involvement,

Cisterns of a more attractive body, a flawless face, more charisma, more influence,

Cisterns of sex, partying, carousing, alcohol or drugs,

Cisterns of the company of others, acceptance by others, esteem by others, value from others?

Are you looking to Christ, the fountain of Living Water, who ever emits fresh cool Water that can soothe your parched and thirsting soul?

Or have you looked away from Him and are digging cisterns for yourself with the hope of finding water that will quench that thirst deep down inside?

If you have looked away from Christ and are hewing cisterns for yourself with the hope that they will quench the thirst and longing in the depth of your soul, you can rest assured that whatever water you may find in those cisterns will become stagnant and stale and the cisterns will eventually crack, leak and break, inevitably leaving you more thirsty than before?

Where are you seeking fulfillment today for the thirsty longing that exists deep in your soul?

If you have looked away from the Lord and are digging cisterns for yourself with the hope of finding water that will quench that thirst deep down inside, today God says to you;-

“Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].

Incline your ear [submit and consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy (kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David.”

(Isaiah 55:1-3 – Amplified Bible)

“Jesus answered her, All who drink of this water will be thirsty again.
But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.”

(John 4:13, 14- Amplified Bible)

“The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost.”

(Revelation 22:17 – Amplified Bible)

By divine design, there is nothing or no-one other than God who can quench that dull aching thirst and longing for fulfillment that you have deep down in your soul……nothing or no-one…SELAH!

Recognize and accept this truth then make a decision today to stop digging and hewing cisterns, broken cisterns that will leak and can never ever fulfill you the way that you long to be fulfilled and instead, turn to God, the source of the thirst-quenching Living Water that you crave and allow Him to fill your cup.

“FILL MY CUP” – CRC WORSHIP

“Oh, that men would praise [and confess to] the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with good.”

(Psalm 107:8, 9 – Amplified Bible)

May you from now on always seek to find your uttermost fulfillment in Him and Him alone.

Be encouraged!

JESUS HAIKU

JESUS HAIKU

"NEVER FORGET GOD'S LOVE FOR YOU"

“NEVER FORGET GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU”

 

Jesus

Geez…us?

Jesus

 

“When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 

Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 

And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. 

For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.

So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.”

Romans 8:6-11 – NLT

 

Jesus

Geez…us?

Jesus

 

SELAH!

GOD’S LAW TRANSCENDS HUMAN LAW

GOD’S LAW TRANSCENDS HUMAN LAW

GOD'S LAW SHALL PREVAIL

“GOD’S LAW SHALL PREVAIL”

I wrote the following post in December of 2012 and in view of the rising trend of humans legislating what is right in their own eyes as opposed to what is right in God’s eyes, I thought it would be good to post it again.

Be challenged.

Be blessed.

GOD’S LAW VS. HUMAN LAW

If God’s Law declares something to be wrong,

no human legislation can make it right.

A popular or majority vote means nothing in the eyes of God.

 

If every human being on this planet votes in favor of an activity or behavior deemed wrong by God,

and every nation of the earth passes laws to support the same,

in God’s eyes, that activity or behavior is still wrong and He will judge it accordingly.

 

Be not deceived.

No matter what man declares as right,

if God says it is wrong, it is wrong.

 

“All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.”

(Psalms 119:160)

 

“Long ago I learned from your statutes
 that you established them to last forever.”

(Psalms 119:152)

 

Let each person who has an ear hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the Church.

 

SELAH!

 

Be encouraged,

Kim

STAY ON THE POTTER’S WHEEL – DON’T FIGHT THE PROCESS

STAY ON THE POTTER’S WHEEL – DON’T FIGHT THE PROCESS

Are you on the Potter’s wheel?

Are you wondering, “What in the world is happening in my life? Why am I going through all this?”

I received the following prophetic word by Elaine Tavolacci this morning via my subscription to her website, http://www.awordinseason.info. which I believe is a timely word for those who being made over by God on His Potter’s Wheel and as such am re-blogging it with her permission.

unnamed-3

Don't fight the process - Let God re-make you.

Don’t fight the process – Let God re-make you to fit His purpose and destiny for your life.

 

January 31, 2015

THE POTTERS WHEEL

Elaine Tavolacci

The Holy Spirit showed me a lump of clay on a potter’s wheel. The potter began to spin the wheel as he molded and shaped the piece of clay as he formed it. When making pottery on a potter’s wheel, the clay has to first be centered, then water is applied before the potter begins his creation. The potter then shapes the clay into the image that he desires. There are different wheels used to create different vessels. The Lord has designed each one of us in a distinct way with a specific calling. There are no two people created for the same purpose and plan.

The Lord told Jeremiah to go down to the Potters house to give him a prophetic illustration. When he went, he had seen the potter making something at the wheel. The clay vessel that the potter had made was marred in his hands; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make. Many people don’t understand the process of the potter’s wheel. The potter’s wheel is not to judge us or punish us, but it is to form us into the masterpiece that the Lord has created us to be.

The Lord says just as the potter designs each clay pot in different shapes and sizes, I have designed and created each one of you. Everyone has been born with a unique purpose and plan. Each one of you have been strategically designed for a particular purpose, and I will work with each of you in a specific way. Do not fear the potter’s wheel and do not refuse it, for this is My workmanship. This is the place where I am molding you and conforming you into My image. This is the place where all impurities and defilement will be destroyed and all bruises and blemishes will be erased. This is the place where the rough edges will be smooth out, broken vessels will be restored and old mindsets will be dismantled. Afflictions, traumas and misfortunes from the past will be annihilated and dreams will be birth and brought forth. This is the place where your mind will be renewed and you will learn to walk in integrity and maturity. This place is necessary for your spiritual growth to bring forth the gifts that I have placed on the inside of you.

Do not refuse the work on the potters wheel but allow Me to transform you as I shape your life and destiny. Trust Me when the process seems too difficult. Don’t say that this is an uncomfortable place, but know that it is for your benefit and necessary to bring you in to the fulfillment of My plans. Do not resist the work that I am doing on the inside of you, but allow Me to accomplish My perfect will through you. Allow Me to work with you and fashion you into My image. I Am the master potter and as you allow Me, I will design your life so that you will become all that I have created you to be. You will become a glorious vessel of honor, and others will see the brilliance of the transformed life that I am creating in you. I desire to make something beautiful out of your life as you allow Me to work in and through you says the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Isaiah 29:16
Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; For shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”?

Isaiah 64:8
But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.

Jeremiah 18:1- 4
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying:” Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

I hope the word was a blessing to you.

In 2012 I came across this short video called “In the Potter’s Hands” by Pastor Steve Hill that I believe may shed some light on your perplexity and be a blessing to you.

 

Now be blessed by Darlene Zschech and Hillsong as they sing “The Potters Hand”

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

 

“I LOVE YOU LORD” – MARANATHA SINGERS

 

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

Of course I love the Lord!

What do you mean if I love the Lord?

What kind of question is that?

I’m a Christian right!

But wait, before you answer or comment, there is a  question that needs to be answered first – What does it mean to love the Lord?

Does it mean to have a warm affectionate connected feeling toward the Lord?

Does it mean to sing with your whole heart songs about loving the Lord?

Does it mean to verbally say “Lord I love you”?

Check out the below scriptures and see what Jesus had to say on this matter.

 

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

(John 14:15 – KJV)

“If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands.”

(John 14:15 – Amplified Bible)

__________

“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

(John 14:21 – KJV)

The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]

(John 14:21 – Amplified Bible)

__________

“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.”

(John 14:23-24 – KJV)

“Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.
Anyone who does not [really] love Me does not observe and obey My teaching. And the teaching which you hear and heed is not Mine, but [comes] from the Father Who sent Me.”

(John 14:23-24 – KJV)

__________

The scripture is clear that the Lord’s gauge of our love for Him is our obedience to Him.

From Jesus’s perspective, the way that we show that we love Him is by obeying His teachings and His commandments.

The word “love” in each of these scripture verses is the Greek word “agapao” which Strong’s Concordance tells us is to love in a social or moral sense, embracing especially the judgment and deliberate assent of the will as a matter of principle, duty and propriety; in other words; it’s chiefly a love of the head with corresponding willful actions and not of the heart or feelings and affections. (Source – Strong’s Concordance on E-Sword)

The Lord measures our love for Him by our obedience to Him, not by our being a friend to, fond of, having and/or expressing affection for or sentimental personal attachment to Him.

That is another kind of love, which Strong’s concordance tells us is “phileo” love and the love God desires, the “agapao” love is much more than that.

So now that you know how the Lord assess our love for Him, again I ask,  DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

Do you choose to obey His teachings and commands or do you choose to live life as you please, doing what you want to do, making your own decisions and just have emotional attachment and “warm fuzzy feelings” toward Him and sing love songs to Him?

When we obey the commands and teachings of the Lord, He considers that as love for Him.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”

(I John 5:3 – KJV)

“For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous).”

(I John 5:3 – Amplified Bible)

SELAH!

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

In John 21:15-17, Jesus asked Peter 3 times if he loved Him, and each after time Peter told the Lord yes, he loved Him, Jesus said “then” and gave Peter a command….”then feed my lambs”, “then feed my sheep”, “then feed my sheep”.

In essence, Jesus was saying to Peter, if you love me, then keep my command to you.

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few years?

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few months?

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few weeks?

What has the Lord been commanding you to do over the past few days?

What is the Lord commanding you to do today?

Are you going to obey Him and thereby prove your love for Him on His terms, the love that He really desires and that pleases Him, or disobey Him and show “love” on your terms, with lip service and emotional endearment?

If you love Him, I challenge you to show it to Him by keeping His written and spoken commandments to you.

DO YOU LOVE THE LORD?

Lord give us the willingness and grace to walk in obedience to what you tell us to do and thereby show our love for you. 

SELAH!

IS YOUR TIMING RIGHT?

IS YOUR TIMING RIGHT?

HOW'S YOUR TIMING?

IS YOUR TIMING RIGHT?

 

IS YOUR TIMING RIGHT?

 

1″To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

Are you killing something it’s time to give birth to?

Are you birthing something it’s time to let it die?

Are you trying to pluck up what it’s time to let remain planted?

Are you trying to plant what it’s time to let remain plucked up?

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

Are you killing when it’s time to heal?

Are you healing when it’s to time to kill?

Are you breaking down when it’s time to build up?

Are you building up when it’s time to break down?

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Are you laughing when it’s time to weep?

Are you weeping when it’s time to laugh?

Are you dancing when it’s time to mourn?

Are you mourning when it’s time to dance?

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

Are you gathering when it’s time to cast away?

Are you casting away when it’s time to gather?

Are you refraining from embracing when it’s time to embrace?

Are you embracing when it’s time to refrain from embracing?

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

Are you losing when it’s time to get?

Are you getting when it’s time to lose?

Are you casting away when it’s time to keep?

Are you keeping when it’s time to cast away?

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

Are you sewing when it’s time to rend?

Are you rending when it’s time to sew?

Are you speaking when it’s time to keep silence?

Are you keeping silence when it’s time to speak?

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Are you hating when it’s time to love?

Are you loving when it’s time to hate?

Are you in a time of war when it’s a time for peace?

Are you in a time of peace when it’s a time for war? 

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 – KJV)

 

IS YOUR TIMING RIGHT?

 

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”

(Ecclesiastes 3:1 – KJV)

 

SELAH!

 

May God grant each of us the wisdom to discern and embrace His timing in all aspects of our lives and grant us the humility and courage to repent and re-align ourselves when we recognize that we are out of sync with His timing.

Be encouraged!

A TRIBUTE TO ANDRAE CROUCH

A TRIBUTE TO ANDRAE CROUCH

ANDRAE CROUCH

ANDRAE CROUCH (JULY 1, 1942 – JANUARY 8, 2015)

Andrae Crouch went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 8th.

As a child I can remember hearing and loving so many of his songs “Jesus is the Answer”, “I Don’t Know Why Jesus Loved Me”, “Soon and Very Soon”, “My Tribute (To God Be The Glory)”, “Take Me Back”, “Through It All”, “The Blood Will Never Lose It’s Power”, “Bless His Holy Name”, ‘It Won’t Be Long” and so many, many more.

I did not see Andrae Crouch as an entertainer, or a musical artist but as an incredibly gifted minister spreading God’s Word through song.

His songs are timeless, still ministering to the hearts and spirits of people all over the world today though many were written decades ago.

Today, I thank God for the life of Andrae Crouch and for his willingness to faithfully share the gifts that God placed in him to edify the Body of Christ and as a witness of Jesus to the world.

Here are three of his earlier songs that have blessed me over the years; I hope they will bless you too.

JESUS IS THE ANSWER

I DON’T KNOW WHY JESUS LOVED ME

THE BLOOD WILL NEVER LOSE IT’S POWER

“Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.”

(Psalms 105:2 – KJV)

Be encouraged!
