CHANGE IS CALLING

CHANGE IS CALLING

IT JUST DOESN’T FIT!

 

Good morning to all my WordPress family, email subscribers and readers!

There’s something important that I need to let you know.

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

You want it to fit so you pull, tug, twist, wiggle, hold in, stretch, but none of that helps…it just does not fit.

It used to fit beautifully, 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 often, but now it simply won’t fit.

For me, Unwalled has become that piece of clothing.

Aone time Unwalled fit in my spirit well, but things are shifting, and continuing with it as at present is like trying to squeeze into that favorite old garment that just won’t fit.

I’ve been seeking God’s wisdom on the matter and asking Him what this “mis-fitness” means and requires.

I don’t have any clear instructions yet, but whatever He tells me to do, whether it is to make some key changes or to discontinue the blog, I will do it so out of respect and fairness, I’m sharing this with you now.

When something in our life no longer fits, change, i.e., letting go of the familiar either in part or whole, is calling. 

Is there someone or something in some aspect of your life, family, work, church/ministry, friendships, health, finances, whatever, 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?

At times just the thought of this can be daunting, so we figuratively prefer to squeeze into that old, favorite garment, keeping things the same way, 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 cannot move forward while looking back, we cannot hold on to what no longer fits and expect to progress in God’s plan for our lives.

If there is someone or something that no longer fits, I urge you to seek the Lord about it then listen to and do whatever He says, knowing that, “The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you.“

By God’s grace, that’s what I intend to do, not just with Unwalled, but in every area of my life that no longer fits and requires God-inspired change.

 

“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

 

WordPress family, email subscribers and readers, please know that I appreciate each of you.

Once I receive clarity about Unwalled and have some instructions re its future, I’ll let you know. 

 

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

(Ecclesiastes 3:1 – KJV)

 

CHANGE IS CALLING!

 

Shalom!

Kim

A WORD FOR YOU

GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU

November 25, 2016

THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

By Elaine Tavolacci

The Holy Spirit showed me a long dark tunnel. In the same way that you travel through a tunnel to go from one place to another, there are many believers in a time of transition. In the natural most people don’t like to drive through tunnels, especially if they don’t know the length of the tunnel. A tunnel could be dark and cold and seem endless. When you are in a tunnel you have a drastically narrowed field of vision and you are surrounded by walls. Many of you are in a time of transformation that you are unfamiliar with. It seems as if you have been moving forward but not experiencing victory in this cold dismal place. You have been there for so long that you have developed “tunnel vision” as your vision has become extremely narrow.

The Lord is saying to continue to go forward and don’t grow weary in well doing. His plan will begin to unfold as you diligently seek Him in this time of transition. It may be a challenging time and a difficult process, but don’t make the mistake of going back to the old door and opening it again if you know that God had closed it. When Jesus opens a door or makes a way for you, there will be no fear, neither will it be difficult or stressful.

For those of you who have been waiting on a word or promise from the Lord and you are not seeing it come to pass, don’t allow discouragement to take root. We are entering into a season of promises and destinies that are going to be fulfilled. Don’t give up or compromise in the eleventh hour. The greatest challenge is not what you went through in the past but it is the success of your future. Continue to pursue the vision that was promised to you. It will surely come to pass. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Proverbs 4:18
“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”

Daniel 12:3
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”

Galatians 6: 9
“And Let us not be Weary in well Doing: for In due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Philippians 3:12-14
“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

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.

The Lord is good to those who wait [confidently] for Him,

It is good that one waits quietly

For the salvation of the Lord.”

WHAT TO DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO

WHAT TO DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO

WHEN THINGS DON'T WORK OUT AS DESIRED - TRUST HIM!

WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS DESIRED – TRUST GOD!

 

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO?

I don’t know the details of your situation, but if you’ve lived long enough, I do know you’ve had this experience or something very similar.

It was a situation where you desired something, some outcome concerning yourself or a person, place or thing in your life and in your view, what you desired was a good thing because after all, it did not conflict with the basic principles of God’s will as outlined in His Word and obtaining it would be beneficial.

You did everything you knew to do for things to work out.

You prayed, planned, followed the steps, took the measures, made the adjustments, met the deadlines, heeded the sound advice, put in the time, kept the faith, repented when necessary……you even fasted, prayed, came in agreement with a prayer partner, sowed a seed, decreed and declared the outcome and praised God in advance for it.

You did everything you knew to do for things to work out according to your desires……everything!

But they didn’t work out.

You still did not get the job.

You still lost your house.

Your spouse still left.

Your child still died.

The person was still not healed.

The deal still fell through.

The relationship or friendship still went sour.

Your desired outcome concerning yourself, or that person, place or thing did not materialize……….It just did not happen.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO?

Thousands of yeas ago, Jesus, God’s beloved, only begotten, sinless, Son had an outcome He desired as well.

He wanted another way to redeem mankind other than having to go to the cross.

It’s not that He did not want to redeem mankind, it was just that the very thought of what He would have to go through to do it shook Him to His very core causing His “soul to be exceeding sorrowful even unto death” (Matthew 26:38)

Jesus agonized and prayed so fervently over the matter that His sweat was as drops of blood…..can you imagine that!

Three times He asked the Father if there was any other possible way to get the job done, ending each request by telling the Father, nevertheless, not my will but yours be done.

After all of this intense prayer, what was the outcome?

The outcome was that Jesus’ request was denied.

Another way was not granted.

A grueling death on the cross was the only option given.

What did Jesus do?

He accepted the Father’s answer and moved on in obedience to the Father’s revealed will, trusting the Father’s sovereignty, wisdom and love.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO?

The great Apostle Paul who was God’s key man sent to the Gentiles and who under the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote most of the New Testament had an affliction.

Exactly what it was, the Bible does not say, but it does tell us that the affliction was causing Paul enough distress for him to ask God if He would take it away.

When you think about it, this affliction must have caused Paul great distress because we never read of Paul praying to God and asking Him not to be imprisoned, stoned, flogged, mobbed or shipwrecked anymore, but we do read of how three times he prayed to God to remove this affliction.

II Corinthians 12:7, 8 states, “And to keep me from being puffed up and too much elated by the exceeding greatness (preeminence) of these revelations, there was given me a thorn (a splinter) in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to rack and buffet and harass me, to keep me from being excessively exalted.Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged that it might depart from me;” (Amplified Bible)

After all of that intense prayer, what was the outcome to Paul’s request?

The outcome was that Paul’s requested was denied.

Verse 9 states, “But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!” (Amplified Bible)

Removal of the thorn in his flesh was not granted.

A messenger of satan to rack and buffet and harass him was what he had to constantly face. 

What did Paul do?

He accepted the Lord’s answer that His grace was sufficient for him and moved on in obedience to the Lord’s revealed will, trusting the Lord’s sovereignty, wisdom and love.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO?

  • Do you have an emotional tantrum?
  • Do you get angry, bitter and resentful?
  • Do you doubt the love and wisdom of God?
  • Do you give up and lose faith?
  • Do you have a pity party?
  • Do you sink deep in depression?
  • Do you stop praying?
  • Do you stop attending church?
  • Do you walk away from God?

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO?

If Jesus, our sinless Lord and Savior, the only begotten beloved Son of God experienced things not working out as He desired in spite of doing all He could, and if the Apostle Paul, God’s key man sent to the Gentiles who under the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote most of the New Testament experienced things not working out as he desired, why are we 21st century saints so shocked when things don’t work out as we want? ….SELAH!

SO WHAT SHOULD YOU DO WHEN THINGS DO NOT WORK OUT AS YOU WANTED THEM TO?

Let’s take a lesson from our Lord Jesus and from the Apostle Paul.

When things do not work out as desired in spite of all of our efforts, let’s rise above our thoughts and feelings, accept God’s answer, know that the Lord’s grace is sufficient to undergird us, and move on in obedience to whatever is the Lord’s revealed will, trusting His sovereignty, wisdom and love as we go. 

By His grace you can!

By his grace, I can!

“And we know that 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 – NLT)

“DIVINE DEPOSITS”

No Deposit – No Return

Elaine Tavolacci

unnamed-6

One day I was in a bank waiting for assistance. I looked up and noticed a sign on the wall that caught my attention. The sign read: “TODAY’S DECISIONS AFFECT TOMORROWS RETURNS”. The scripture came to me which says “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap”. In the Kingdom of God, this law also applies. I am not talking about a financial deposit which is also relevant, but I am referring to a spiritual deposit. The quality and quantity of the spiritual deposit that we make into our lives will determine our spiritual return.

People deposit their money into a bank because they believe that it is a safe place. They will deposit it where they will receive the highest interest rate. Whatever we deposit into our spirit will either be beneficial or detrimental to our spiritual lives. What we sow will determine tomorrow’s returns in our lives. The greater the deposit, the greater the return. No deposit, no return. The bible says; For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit, will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

The Lord says; the deposits which you have made throughout the years were not in vain. The time spent in My word and My presence will yield great results. The prayers that you have prayed will not return void. All that you have sowed will surely bear much fruit and you will see it come to pass. I have seen every divine deposit that you have made throughout the years by continually standing on My Word and praying even when you didn’t see results. What you are depositing into your life and into your spirit will affect your personal life, your family, your ministry and your destiny. The things that you do daily will affect your outcome permanently. It is your decision to stir up the gift that has been deposited inside of you. It is your choice to nurture and cultivate those gifts.

As you were faithful in adversity and steadfast in difficult times, I am a God of justice and I will honor My Word. I will release the gifts that were promised to you and release you into the ministries that were assigned to you. For those of you who have been careless in your walk with Me, return to the place where you once were, and I will receive you and restore you once again. To those of you who have lost much, trust Me as I will watch over My word to perform it. Stay alert, and do not be afraid to go forward because I am with you and I will position you as well as escort you. Do not hide your talents but be prepared to move into the plan that I have designed for you. Your effort will be rewarded and your dreams will come to pass as you continue to abide in Me and simply trust Me says the Lord.

Matthew 6: 19 – 21
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Galatians 6:7 – 9
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

1 Timothy 4:14 – 16
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
