IS GOD CALLING FOR CHANGE?

IS GOD CALLING FOR CHANGE? 

IT JUST DOES NOT FIT!

IT JUST DOES NOT FIT!

Are there people, places or things in your life that you know just do not fit anymore?

The following is a post I wrote in March of 2012 called “If It Just Does Not Fit Your Life, It’s Time To Change It” that I believe will help you.

Be blessed!

Be encouraged!

Be motivated!

IF IT JUST DOES NOT FIT YOUR LIFE, IT’S TIME TO CHANGE IT

Have you ever had a favorite piece of clothing that you’ve worn for years then one day you try it on and it just does not fit?

You pull, tug, twist, wiggle, hold in, stretch, but it just does not fit.

Mind you, it was fitting all along and you enjoyed wearing it. It looked good on you, you felt comfortable in it, others complimented you on it and even encouraged you to wear it, but now it just does not fit.

What is it in your life that used to fit beautifully, but now it just does not fit?

Is it your job, or position at work?
The place where you live?
The local church you attend?
The way you dress?
Your eating habits?
An attitude?
A mindset?
A method you’ve used to do a specific task?
A way of relating to someone?
A friendship or some other relationship?
Helping a certain person or institution in a particular way?
Your perspective or belief about something or someone?

What is it in your life that used to fit beautifully, but now it just does not fit?

At one time it fit you well. You felt at peace with it, it complemented your life, produced good fruit, helped and blessed others, provided fulfillment, enabled you to grow and develop, but now if you are honest with yourself, holding on to or continuing in it is like trying to squeeze into that favorite old garment that just won’t fit.

What is it in your life that used to fit beautifully, but now it just does not fit?

Selah!

Once identified, no matter what it is in your life that just does not fit, it is important for you to accept the fact that it just does not fit and some adjustments are needed.

Next, it is important to seek God’s wisdom on the matter. Ask Him why you are experiencing this “mis-fitness” and to show you how to deal with it. As you open your heart and mind to hear from Him, remember that whatever He speaks to you will never contradict His written Word or its principles in any way.

Lastly, and most importantly, whatever He tells you to do, just do it!

Okay, I know that depending on what He says, sometimes it is not that easy, but I also know that God will never instruct you to do anything that He has not already made a way for you to do.

So whether He directs you to sever a relationship, re-define a friendship, leave a job, seek a new place to live, withhold help where you once freely gave it, change your eating or dressing habits, your way of relating to someone, your attitude toward a situation or person, where you attend church, or anything else, you can rest assured that His grace, His divine enabling power, is available to help you to do it.

When something in our life no longer fits, change is calling.

Let’s face it, sometimes it is scary letting go of the familiar. We figuratively prefer to squeeze into that old, favorite garment, but if change is what God requires, it is best that we do it in spite of our feelings because in the same way that we can not move forward while looking back, we can not hold on to what no longer fits and expect to progress in God’s plan for our lives.

What is it in your life that you know no longer fits, and that you sense the Lord telling you to lay aside, put off, leave behind, walk away from, no longer be involved in, adjust or see differently?

Whatever it is, I exhort you to hear, listen to and obey His voice and remember that “The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God can not keep you.“

 

“For it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure.”

Philippians 2:13 – NKJV

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Philippians 4:13 – NKJV

 

Shalom!

EYES TO SEE

EYES TO SEE

More than ever before, we as Believers need increased divine wisdom and spiritual discernment to effectively navigate through the choppy spiritual waters of these last days. 

We must be able to clearly see in order to be all God has called us to be and do all He has called us to do, thereby fulfilling our Kingdom assignments.

I received the following timely prophetic word from Elaine Tavolacci this morning via my subscription to her website, http://www.awordinseason.info. which speaks to this issue and am re-blogging it with her permission.

HOW WELL CAN YOU SEE?

HOW WELL CAN YOU SEE?

 

October 1st, 2016

EYES TO SEE

“There are a variety of eye exams which range from a standard eye chart test to more advanced procedures to test people’s eyesight. There are tests called a manual refraction with a phoropter, visual field testing, applanation tonometry, and an exam of the retina with pupil dilation. The phoropter was interesting and caught my attention. It is an odd looking device, but it is actually a simple instrument used to test individual lenses on each eye during an eye exam. With various eye tests, an optometrist will be able to determine if you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.

As I was observing this amazing contraption, the Holy Spirit said; Just as different lenses are used to find one that is customized for each eye, I am opening the spiritual eyes of many believers to see with clarity. Seers are being raised up who will have keen discernment and they will only do what they see the father doing. They will have excellent spiritual peripheral vision, which will enable them to perceive what is happening around them, and night vision to see through the darkness

The Lord says; I am opening up many eyes to see, receive and perceive visions and dreams from heaven. As your spiritual eyes are opened, you will begin to see things in the spirit realm in a whole new way. I will show you the plans, purposes and the malicious motives of those who are trying to harm you. I will give you eyes to see into the enemy’s camp, and will reveal the distorted tactics and agendas that are against you. I will then give you discernment and the ability to dismantle the plans of the adversary. You will receive My strategies to combat these forces of evil.

I will reveal secrets to you in your times of intercession. Those who are watchman on the wall will receive keen spiritual discernment and they will no longer have a clouded view but will discern with accuracy. They will receive sight to see beyond their natural sight as they stand in prayer and intercession. They will no longer be led by their preconceived mindsets or their natural ways of thinking. I will not only show you how to rise about the mountains in the lives of others, but I will also give you the authority to remove them.

Many will begin to receive words of knowledge and words of wisdom in intercession. They will prophesy what they see, and speak life into the lives of those who are bound. My word will bring healing to the wounded heart and breathe resurrection power into that which is dead. You will say only what you hear your heavenly father saying, and do only what you see Him doing. My plans and purposes will begin to unfold in your life, as I release this gift to you says the Lord.”

2 Kings 5: 17
And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

Isaiah 21:6
For thus has the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman, Let him declare what he sees.”

Habakkuk 2:1
I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected.

Matthew 13:16-17
But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.

AN IMPORTANT TRUTH TO BE MINDFUL OF

AN IMPORTANT TRUTH TO BE MINDFUL OF

“The voice said, “Cry out!”
And he said, “What shall I cry?”
“All flesh is grass,
And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades,
Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;

Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”

Isaiah 40:6-8 – NKJV

 

 

“A voice says, “Call out [prophesy].”

Then he answered, “What shall I call out?”

[The voice answered:] All humanity is [as frail as] grass, and all that makes it attractive [its charm, its loveliness] is [momentary] like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades, When the breath of the Lord blows upon it;

Most certainly [all] the people are [like] grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”

Isaiah 40:6-8 – Amplified Bible

SELAH!

Be encouraged to live mindful of this truth.

THE TOUCH OF JESUS

THE TOUCH OF JESUS

Are you battling health challenges?

Are you wondering if God still heals today?

I received the following testimony and prophetic word from Elaine Tavolacci yesterday evening via my subscription to her website, http://www.awordinseason.info. which I believe is a timely word of hope and encouragement for anyone battling health challenges and as such, am re-blogging it with her permission.

"GOD STILL HEALS TODAY"

“GOD’S HEALING TOUCH IS STILL AVAILABLE TODAY”

September 17, 2016

THE TOUCH OF JESUS

Elaine Tavolacci

“Today I have an amazing testimony that I want to share with you. For the past year I have been going through the most difficult trials of my life concerning my health. For those of you who know what I have already endured in my past, you are probably wondering how this could be. I want to give a testimony of the faithfulness of God and how Jesus still heals today. All my blood tests are within normal range, my liver function is almost perfect, and the lymphoma and hepatitis C are gone. I was also diagnosed with several auto immune diseases which are now undetectable, and the excruciating pain in my bones is gone. Jesus still performs miracles today. He is a supernatural God and wants to bring healing, transformation and renewal to our bodies as well as our lives and ministries. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

This is what the Lord is showing me. For the past few years we have experienced an extraordinary acceleration in technology. We have gone from TV’s with rabbit ears to HD TV’s. We have gone from rotary dial phones to mobile phones where we could see the person that we are talking to. We have computers that could communicate across the world. The other day I was reading about “Near field communication” which is abbreviated NFC. NFC is a form of communication between devices such as smartphones, tablets or computers. With this technology, we are now able to take a device such as a smart phone and hold it within two inches of a computer or other hardware to transfer pictures or documents. It allows us to perform countless transactions, access digital content, and connect electronic devices with a single touch.

As I was reading about this the Holy Spirit gave me a profound analogy. Every time Jesus touches us there is a divine connection. He releases His supernatural power into our physical bodies. In the same way that He healed others in the bible, He is still healing today. The same way that He performed miracles two thousand years ago and raised the dead, He is doing the same today.

He said in His word in the book of Mark 16:15-16: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. But then He went on to say in verse 18: And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

We are living in a time of heaven being released on the earth. He is calling us to go out and Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. In the book of Acts chapter 17 it is written…In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

We are living in this time. Expect miracles.”

Matthew 10:8
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[c] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

John 16: 15-18
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My  name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

John 17: 21 – 23
That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

Acts 2:17
In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

I hope this word was a source of hope, encouragement, edification and challenge to you.

Whether it manifests immediately or through a process, know that God’s healing touch is still available today. 

For those of you who are believing for your healing but wearied by the journey and feel like you need some strength this morning, be blessed by the Potter’s House Worship Team as they minister “You Are My Strength”

 

 

Although at times it may not be easy and you may become weary in the fight, be encouraged to keep your spiritual eyes fixed on Jehovah Rapha, the God who Heals, and your heart and mind fixed on the Truth of the Word of God concerning healing.

BACK-TO-SCHOOL PRAYER FOR 2016-2017

BACK-TO-SCHOOL PRAYER FOR 2016-2017

 

PRAY FOR OUR CHILDREN AS THEY RETURN TO SCHOOL

PRAY FOR OUR CHILDREN, TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND SUPPORT STAFF AS THEY RETURN TO SCHOOL

 

The summer break is just about over and the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year is upon us.

As such, it is important that we pray for our students, teachers, administrators, and support staff as they return to school campuses all over the world.

Below is a back-to-school prayer that I encourage you to pray in faith with Believers worldwide, believing God to move on our behalf for His honor and glory.

Let us pray:

Father, we come to You in the Name of Jesus thanking you for all that You’ve done, known and unknown, during the past school years………..for this, we are forever grateful.

As we enter this new School Year, we ask that You give our students, teachers, administrators, and support staff a spirit of excellence, a mind to work hard, and that You empower them to do well and make the most of each opportunity presented to them.

When things get difficult, grant them a spirit of determination and perseverance to push through and not give up. Help them to recognize and understand that You are their very present help in times of trouble no matter where they are or what they face.

Father, protect and keep our students, teachers, administrators, and support staff. Shield them from all harm and danger. Help them to avoid every trap and foil every plan of the enemy. We cover them in the Blood of Jesus and ask that Your warring angels encamp around them and guard them in all of their ways.

And, more than ever before, help them to hold fast to the Truth of Your Word and not be deceived into believing, accepting or practicing any doctrine, philosophy, or behavior, that is contrary to Your Divine Will and Standards…….even if exposed to their minds, may it not enter their hearts, but let Your Truth always reign supreme in their innermost being.

Father, help our students, teachers, administrators, and support staff to maintain an atmosphere and environment that is conducive to learning and development. Help them to submit to established rules and order and to practice respect. Should disagreement or conflict arise, enable peace and harmony to be wisely and speedily restored without violence or abuse at any level . 

Strengthen and comfort all who are coming from homes or personal situations filled with need, strife, and trauma and are secretly hurting and broken within. Enable them to work well in spite of their situations. Intervene on their behalf and bring help, healing and restoration. Touch them and let them know and experience Your love and presence in a special way. 

Father, make each student, teacher, administrator, and support staff mindful of their responsibility to represent You well as Ambassadors of Your Kingdom. Remind them that they are salt and light on their school campuses with an assignment to advance Your Kingdom and influence those in their environment for Your honor and glory.

Let Your power and anointing rest upon and work through them making them notably distinct and different, and enabling them to demonstrate Godly wisdom, character, principles and love to all so hearts may be touched, lives changed and souls saved. 

Father we place this 2016-2017 School Year and everyone and everything concerning it into Your hands acknowledging our need for and dependence on You.

Thank You in advance for all that You will do for Your honor and glory in Jesus’ Name, amen.

Be encouraged,

Kim

YOU OR GOD?

YOU OR GOD?

GOD VS YOU

 

Sometimes obeying and therefore pleasing God will put us at odds with people, even those near and dear to us, resulting in negative repercussions.

 

You expected “A”

God said give “B”

Now I’m treated like a refugee.

 

You wanted to hear “Yes’

God said to say “No”

Now I have nowhere to go.

 

You said “come”

God said “stay”

Now I have a price to pay.

 

You said “move”

God said “wait”

Now you want to separate.

 

You wanted my help

God said refrain

Now you resent the sound of my name.

 

You wanted me in your box

God said be free

This is about Him……not about you nor about me.

 

SELAH!

 

The Apostle Paul knew first-hand the pressures and price when faced with the proposition of pleasing God vs pleasing man.

In Galatians 1:10 he makes a statement that shows that he understood something very critical about this issue.

He stated:

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

(Galatians 1:10 – NIV)

The Apostle Paul said if he was still trying to please people, he would not be a servant of Christ. 

This statement shows that at one time the Apostle Paul was trying to please people, but came to realize that if he continued to do so, he would not be able to walk in the divine destiny that God had ordained for him, so he made a key decision, he decided that he would no longer try to please people, but would instead please and seek the approval of God.

What about you?

How badly do you want to walk in the God’s divine purpose for you?

Do you want to walk in it badly enough to endure the negative attitudes, rejection, disapproval and persecution that often comes from others when obeying God’s directives to you is at odds with their desires or preferences?

What do you do when faced with the dilemma of pleasing God vs pleasing others?

What do you do when God wants you to say “no” in a situation, but another wants you to say “yes”?

Do you allow the fear of their backlash to override the voice of the Holy Spirit, and against your better judgment, yield to their request or demand, or do you choose to stand your ground, respectfully decline and please God?

As Believers it is inevitable that we will face many situations on our spiritual journey where pleasing God will mean offending man, and pleasing man will mean offending God.

Like the Apostle Paul, when faced with the choice, may we, by the grace of God, have the will and courage to resist pleasing man, no matter who it might be, and choose to please God instead.

It all begins with a heart decision – “Lord I want to please You” – then reliance on His grace in every situation to see us through.

 

SELAH!

 

“Am I now trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.”

(Galatians 1:10 – Amplified Bible)

 

“The fear of human opinion disables;
trusting in God protects you from that.”

(Proverbs 29:25 – The Message Bible)

 

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”

(Romans 8:14 – NKJV)

 

“I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.”

(Philippians 4:13 – NKJV)

 

SELAH!

WARRING WITH YOUR PROPHETIC WORD

WARRING WITH YOUR PROPHETIC WORD

Are you waiting on the fulfillment of a prophetic word/prophecy that seems to be taking forever?

If so, 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  you and as such am re-blogging it with her permission.

Warring With Your Prophetic Word

By Elaine Tavolacci

In the book of First Timothy, Paul was encouraging Timothy to wage a good warfare concerning the prophecies that were given to him. He wouldn’t have told him that if he wasn’t going to experience spiritual warfare. Every one of us has received a word from God either through a personal prophetic word, or the bible. The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you have become disheartened because that prophetic word has not yet come to pass. For some of you it has been months, and for others it has been years that this promise has not manifested in the natural. There is a process between the time that we receive the word, until the word comes to pass. The bible says in 1 Timothy 1:18 that we are to wage a good warfare with that prophecy, and to fight the good fight of faith.

The Holy Spirit gave me this analogy of two trees. Two distinct seeds were planted in the same field and at the same time. The first seed was a cherry blossom tree seed and the other was a sequoia tree seed. Each seed had the same care as they were both provided the same sunlight and water. The cherry blossom tree grew quickly and flourished beautifully with brilliant pink flowers and bright green leaves, but the seed of the sequoia tree seemed to be taking a long time to show any signs of growth. As time went on, the cherry blossom tree continued to grow and flourish but the sequoia tree seed didn’t appear as if it was going to amount to anything. After some time the sequoia tree began to grow towering over the cherry blossom tree and multiplied in size, surpassing the cherry blossom tree in height, width and overall proportion.

The reason why the sequoia tree took longer to grow was because it required stronger and deeper roots to support its tremendous size. Neither tree was insignificant, but each one served their purpose. Although the cherry blossom tree was beautiful to the eye, the sequoia tree grew to be the tallest and strongest tree in the world. In the same way, some of you have promises that are taking longer to come to pass because they are more extensive and wide range. Don’t let go of the prophecy that has been given to you no matter how long it takes. Your promise will come into fruition just as these two seeds which were planted. Every one of us, and every promise is unique and exclusively designed. When His word comes to pass in its appointed time, you will see the vastness of it and you will be amazed at what Jesus has done in your life and ministry.

1 Timothy 1:18
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.

1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 Timothy 6:20-21
O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge- by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith.
