Proverbs 4:11-12 (Amplified Bible)
11 I have taught you in the way of skillful and godly Wisdom [which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God]; I have led you in paths of uprightness.
12 When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble

Greetings my friends in the name of Jesus. I pray that you are Beholding His Works every day that His love awakens you.

Just a few things that I have learned from our Lord as I sit with Him and remain teachable. Being a student of His is not always comfortable, but it really is not hard, if you really Want to learn.

I pray that you are encouraged by what He has given to me that I share in order to encourage myself. May you continue to allow Him to complete the changes that He has for your life. I pray that you allow Him to continue to prepare you so that you will grow in your Spiritual life, in your emotional life and in your natural life. In that order, in the name of Jesus, amen.

In times like these, those that belong to the Lord should not become fearful as they get to the Red Sea, or a wall that keeps them out, or a problem that someone else created, we should not focus on it— but keep our focus on our Promised Land of Freedom that we Surely will walk into, drawing on all the courage that we can and As He parts the waters-making a Way- we Will pass over dry land.

There is nothing to fear when you have Faith in Him enough to Trust Him.

Or, is that the case with many of His people…..they don’t have faith enough to trust Him? Keep learning, keep seeking Him, keep yourself open to His Spirit’s Leading; stay teachable and your faith will grow as He passes you through each and every trial and trouble-using each one to change you and mold you- walking right beside you- always holding on. He’ll be there!

To be strengthened, established and prepared in your Spiritual Growth means you have accepted the changes that always come from His teachings. You have opened your eyes and your heart to Him fully.

There is no need to fear any of the changes that come with each step of trust by faith.

"The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1

I'm going to Get what God has for me!

Joshua 1:1-16
Just as Joshua trusted God to deliver them into the Promises that He spoke to them, we all are to learn to trust Him by faith just the same.

If you have prayed for God to Divinely Order your steps, then when He tells you to step--you have to step forward! Take The STEP!
By Faith, You have to believe that He has prepared the details you will need for your physical and Spiritual breakthrough! Not just changing yourself physically, but first changing in your Spiritual life, your emotional life, your mental life-the way you think and what you think about. Changes have to begin there first before you can really begin to enjoy your life.

Changing your physical self only and or first, will not help you overcome your emotional issues, your spiritual issues, your brokenness and pain. All that goes with you wherever you take your physical body; You follow you everywhere you go.

He is offering you A Spiritual breakthrough-by having a connection to Him!
Are you Ready to get what God has for you? Then Step!
Get ready for what God wants to do through and for you! When you trust Him with everything that He promised He Will supply; He Will get you out of the places in which you are stuck.

Many times, people take the plan that God has provided to them and they add in their own ideas and ways trying to make it theirs and not His work. They want to unravel His plan, that is why they want to know every detail beforehand.

How many of you Trust God enough to step out of your struggles, out of your comfort zones, out of your places of being stuck, out of your broken and immature emotional places? To step out of the friendships that are hurting you, the relationships that are a stronghold on you, to step out of the jobs that He is leading you from? To step into the jobs that He has established for you?

Even though He may not reveal to you every detail beforehand—even though you don’t understand it all—but you know God wants you to move into a place that He has Established for you—a place where He has taken care of all the details. Do you trust Him enough to step when He says to step?

Take note, that when you do trust Him enough by faith to step into the places that He has prepared for you or to step out of the places that are holding you back--Many people will become jealous toward you. They will be mad that you have the faith to trust Him because they do not. Others will try to come against you, they do not want you to rise up higher than they are. They may throw your past up in your face, they may talk behind your back, they may do just about anything to try and sabotage your faith and trust in God. If they succeed in stopping you, making you doubt, or fear then they have accomplished what they wanted-to keep you on their level or below them. Pray for them and give them a Wide berth! They cannot stop or hurt you unless you allow them to!

When you make that move by faith into the places that God has established for you, KNOW that He has taken care of all the details so there is no need to fear.

To get what God has for you, you have to be willing to move—again, not just physically, but first move/change in how you see, how you think and act.
Others will see that your relationship with God is based on a belief system in Him and that no matter what you face you know that God is with you in the name of Jesus.

Know that everyone can’t go with you. Those that are jealous of your faith and trust in Jesus will need to be cut away. Make that move when He speaks to your heart to do so. Do not allow your old way of thinking to jam you up in a stuck place and position.

I know that this training And teaching time has not been in vain.

At times suppression, repression, and depression all have been used…But it all has been changed into a time of Glorious Expression. Fully Delighted as I behold the Works of the Lord Every Day.
Psalm 46:8-9

To behold Him every day in all the small things that He does and that I do. He is always in the Details of everything—making them seamless.

His Love has flooded through my life spreading Joy And Gladness. Indeed He has prepared a table of His Delights—A Feast of All Good things for me. His Holy Spirit will anoint you to Praise Him—you just can’t help yourself at these times.

You ever been standing in line somewhere, or doing some house work and begin to think on the Goodness of the Lord? When I do I get so full.

Not to approach God intellectually, He will always be small and confined in the boundaries of the smallness of your mind. Approach Him through your heart-through your Spirit and your Soul. That is how you learn Him, that is where He lives in us Spiritually.

Indeed my cup runneth over and I can feel from the very depth of my heart all that the Lord has planned for me. This is a place of Spiritual growth that He is leading each and every one of those He has called and chosen to be His own.

“Surely goodness And mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever!”

Proverbs 15:15 “All the days of the afflicted are evil; but he that is of a merry heart has a continual feast!”

I know my Lord that You are lifting me higher ( and others)—establishing us in a Stronger Faith—a more Powerful Faith that settles us deeper in Your Purpose for our lives. We continuously expect you Lord. And because we trust You and trust the leading of Your Holy Spirit that dwells within us, You Perfect us to Your detailed specifications.

I love you Lord and I know that this level of faith will allow us to experience the victory and give You more glory—as You continue to Give us what You Want us to Have my Lord!

You have opened my eyes and your Spirit has anointed me with a strong discernment that I am able to see clearly and understand what the enemy has used to hinder my progress. I discern where and when the enemy has created a block and even tried to push me back.

Yes, your divine awareness through growth and trust I know the enemy cannot hold me back nor stop me—I have allowed you to come into me deeper to heal my brokenness, lengthen my shortcomings, and repair what I have destroyed-that I am in need of. You have given to me the Divine wisdom and understanding to see when I am stopping You from helping me grow. Amen.

My friends, the barriers of vapor-smoke and mirrors that the enemy uses against us have no substance at all in reality. We should be grateful to be corrected and changed by Jesus. To fight God and have an attitude when He points out things that need to be faced and corrected in our character, in our heart, in our head and in our Spirit is to want to stay immature and stuck.

Proverbs 4:11-12 (Amplified Bible)

11 I have taught you in the way of skillful and godly Wisdom [which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God]; I have led you in paths of uprightness.

12 When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble."

I encourage you to claim Him as your Help which is your right from God. Often we are to appeal to Jesus our Friend. We are to claim Him as our Help with a mighty, impelling insistence. This Help from Him that we are to Boldly claim is ours because it was included in the Great Gift of Himself that He willingly gave to each of us. Amen.

I claim Your Help as the All Embracing Gift-the Truly Awesome Wonderful Gift that You Are Jesus! It is Well with my Soul!

When other’s deny us—You Lord Will always come through for us!

UnconditionaLove is decision that has the Power of forgiveness in it.

Forgive yourself and then you will be able to forgive others.

To the Chief Musician; for Jeduthun [founder of an official musical family]. A Psalm of David.

1 I SAID, I will take heed and guard my ways, that I may sin not with my tongue; I will muzzle my mouth as with a bridle while the wicked are before me.

2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace without profit and had no comfort away from good, while my distress was renewed.

3 My heart was hot within me. While I was musing, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue:

4 Lord, make me to know my end and [to appreciate] the measure of my days--what it is; let me know and realize how frail I am [how transient is my stay here].

5 Behold, You have made my days as [short as] handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing in Your sight. Truly every man at his best is merely a breath! Selah [pause, and think calmly of that]!

6 Surely every man walks to and fro--like a shadow in a pantomime; surely for futility and emptiness he is in turmoil; each one heaps up riches, not knowing who will gather them.(
7 And now, Lord, what do I wait for and expect? My hope and expectation are in You.

8 Deliver me from all my transgressions; make me not the scorn and reproach of the [self-confident] fool!

9 I am dumb, I open not my mouth, for it is You Who has done it.

10 Remove Your stroke away from me; I am consumed by the conflict and the blow of Your hand.

11 When with rebukes You correct and chasten man for sin, You waste his beauty like a moth and what is dear to him consumes away; surely every man is a mere breath. Selah [pause, and think calmly of that]!

12 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; hold not Your peace at my tears! For I am Your passing guest, a temporary resident, as all my fathers were.

13 O look away from me and spare me, that I may recover cheerfulness and encouraging strength and know gladness before I go and am no more!


Psalm 90 (Amplified Bible)
A Prayer of Moses the man of God.

1 LORD, YOU have been our dwelling place and our refuge in all generations [says Moses].

2 Before the mountains were brought forth or ever You had formed and given birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting You are God.

3 You turn man back to dust and corruption, and say, Return, O sons of the earthborn [to the earth]!

4 For a thousand years in Your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.(
5 You carry away [these disobedient people, doomed to die within forty years] as with a flood; they are as a sleep [vague and forgotten as soon as they are gone]. In the morning they are like grass which grows up--

6 In the morning it flourishes and springs up; in the evening it is mown down and withers.

7 For we [the Israelites in the wilderness] are consumed by Your anger, and by Your wrath are we troubled, overwhelmed, and frightened away.

8 Our iniquities, our secret heart and its sins [which we would so like to conceal even from ourselves], You have set in the [revealing] light of Your countenance.

9 For all our days [out here in this wilderness, says Moses] pass away in Your wrath; we spend our years as a tale that is told [for we adults know we are doomed to die soon, without reaching Canaan].(
10 The days of our years are [
a]threescore years and ten (seventy years)--or even, if by reason of strength, fourscore years (eighty years); yet is their pride [in additional years] only labor and sorrow, for it is soon gone, and we fly away.
11 Who knows the power of Your anger? [Who worthily connects this brevity of life with Your recognition of sin?] And Your wrath, who connects it with the reverent and worshipful fear that is due You?

12 So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.

13 Turn, O Lord [from Your fierce anger]! How long--? Revoke Your sentence and be compassionate and at ease toward Your servants.
14 O satisfy us with Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning [now, before we are older], that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

15 Make us glad in proportion to the days in which You have afflicted us and to the years in which we have suffered evil.

16 Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children.

17 And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands--yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.

Change Always happens when your life is lived with and for Jesus-the Changeless One. He provides the Spiritual growth, the emotional growth, the natural growth and the intellectual growth. He provides the courage, strength and Love that we need to accept the changes that accompany living with and for Him.

To be Proven by Him is to go through the trials and troubles just as me and my family are doing right now in this season of Spiritual Growth that we are within. And I know that this season of transition is coming to a close and that the open door that God has provided is set before me-i will not have to go looking for it. He Will send it to me! Amen!
Revelation 3:8 (Amp Bible)
8I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name."
Revelation 4:1a (Amp Bible)
"AFTER THIS I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! "

(Isa 55) Lord I have an established relationship with you that is in a constant state of becoming what You created me to be.- Prove me Lord, secure me for Your Namesake. Lord I have sought You long before the trouble arrived with the dawning of Your new day. I know with confidence that You are our Way through this and all trouble to come. Thank You in Jesus’ name, Amen! (Hebrews 12:1)

Resting In Him no matter what my eyes see or my ears hear, is to cease to try and do anything to better our situations or change the circumstances that we are within. Cease struggling, worrying, or trying to control anything. It’s not hard to live with and for Jesus, but it does become uncomfortable at times.

Resting in Him and Seeking Him early-(not just in the early morning hours), and Dwelling close-(always keeping Him on your mind-spending time with Him) - to Him provides the faith that allows Him to be right with us at all times.

Proverb 1:33 “But Whoso hearkens to Me [Wisdom] Shall Dwell Securely and In Confident Trust And Shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil.”

Psalm 27:13-14 “What, What would have become of me had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s Goodness In the Land of the Living! Wait And Hope For And Expect the LORD; Be brave And of Good Courage And Let your heart Be stout And Enduring. YES, WAIT For And Hope For And Expect the LORD!”

Psalm 33:22 “Let Your mercy And Loving-kindness, O Lord, Be upon us In proportion to our waiting And Hoping For You!”

I call upon The Holy Spirit to Divinely inspire And encourage me Oh Lord, and so He has done. I was given remembrance and Praised You for all that You have already done for me and my family. To the end that I already trust You completely Lord. For I sought You long before the trouble arrived with the dawning of Your new day. In the name of Jesus, thank You, amen. Thank You for establishing me Oh Lord, for I shall bear You abundant Fruit and I shall be known for the Fruit that I bear for Service unto You. You Lord have put Your reassurance deep in my heart!

The Lord Will Trust me with His Blessings, and so I Expect Him to deliver them into my hands! For my Lord has prepared me for the Blessings from His Heart! In Jesus’ name, Amen!

I Am a Wind Walker! Are you?

I walk on the Wind of His Holy Spirit-staying in the movement of the Power of His Dwelling in me. His Wind is Always beneath my wings!

I am a receiver of All that His Holy Spirit transmits. Are you?

I have one channel in my heart-no cable no channel surfing-One Channel tuned into the Holy Spirit. All this to say that when I don’t know what to do, when there is no one to help me that I can see, I do not try and fix the problem or change the circumstances, in Faith I go to Him and Only Him with a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving that He Will accept! Amen!

You will not know how to Serve Him until you have suffered for Him.

If you have given your life to Him; I encourage you to continue to strengthen and grow in your relationship with Him that He has established in your heart. Dwell with Him, not only Seeking Him early every morning But always before trouble arises in your life.

His Peace And Confidence will come to you because you are Resting in Him.

By doing so, He will prepare you for the day of trouble and you will go straight to Him for He Is Your Help And Your Lord; if you do not let the sin of doubt And unbelief direct your heart. Matt 11:28
He Will prepared you for the day of blessings--He Will prepare you for Every Day!

The Tree Is known by the Fruit It bears! What kind of fruit are you bearing for the Lord? Rotten, spoiled, stunted in growth fruit?

Or, do you produce mature, able to feed many, always abundant fruit?

Do you bear this fruit everyday as we are told to do? Serving Him everyday, or a day here and a day there?

This may be a reason that you have not received any answers to your prayers to Him. If you are bearing fruit a day here and a day there, if you are dwelling with Him a day this week and maybe a day next month, if you are full of double-mindedness, full of doubt and fear 6 days out of 7-if you are spending more time whining and complaining telling everyone your problems and 'why me' sobs, Instead of Praising Him, Thanking Him, Singing to Him, and Expecting Him, then no wonder you are stuck in a round-about! Going round and round the same issues all the time.

Can the Lord Trust you with His Blessings?
Can you handle being abundantly blessed by the Lord?
Have you put forth the effort and time to allow Him to prepare you for what He has for you?

Or are you too busy always working a deal, figuring out what to do, trying to manipulate the situations, trying to get things done by your own knowldge, wisdom and ways?

Discipline Provides many safeguards against the sin of doubt And unbelief!

Think about it.....Are you disciplined -( 2 Peter 2:10; 2 Cor 3:2)

Are you allowing His Spirit to guide you everyday all day?

God does not work through the natural order of our lives--He begins His work in the Spiritual Order of His Love for us!

I Trust God! I KNOW He LOVES me!
To seek no more my own ways….to know Him through my heart and not my mind!

You see, I heard the Lord tell me to Let Love And Faithfulness Never leave me; to Bind them around my neck, and write them on the tablet of my heart! (Pro 3:3).

And I have done so, And I check myself everyday to make sure that I have Kept Love And Faithfulness bound around my neck And that my heart is keeping them also. my Faith To His Power--I TRUST GOD (Rom 4:13; Gal 3:12)

Then He taught me and I know that, He Causes me to hear His LovingKindness in the morning, And In Him Do I Trust, And He causes me to Know The Way In which I Should Walk, For I always lift my soul Up To Him! (Psalm 143:8)

The Character of God always permeates the Life of Faith—I TRUST GOD

Then, I heard the Lord Speak TRUTH to me, that He Is my GOD, And that He Will Hold my right hand, always Saying to me, “FEAR NOT, I WILL HELP YOU!”(Isa 41:13)

I know that what I see Is Not All there Is!—I TRUST GOD

When God speaks to His people, and directs us to carry out His Will; there are those that doubt And those that Do! I thank God that He has separated me; and I pray for them=the doubters; and I keep Trusting God. (Heb 11:8; Num 6:24)

Even when I do not know What He is doing, when He speaks to me, I obey, because I Trust God. (Heb 11:4)

When people I have known for many years, avoid me, deny me and reject me, I Trust God.

When the check bounces, I Trust God.

When concern for our girls at school, at summer girl scout camp, any where we are not, begins to settle in my mind and speak it's story; I go into praise unto God-He Will keep our children safe and from harm. I am learning to leave them in His Hands.


When I am physically tired, run down, I Rest in Him and I Trust God.

When my body and mind begins to turn on me and attack me through sickness, pain, by stealing my mobility and creating a disability--I TRUST GOD.

When our Every temporal supply is low in our home—We Trust God.

When I have to be around unsaved people, immature saved people And unbelievers, I trust God.

When my friends are going through trials and troubles (yeah, some of the same ones I spoke about above); I pray in the name of Jesus to the Father on their behalf, and because I Trust Him, I hear Him reply, It’s already done! I thank Him. (Pro 3:27-28)

When the frustrations, the hatred, the sadness, the evil, and the meanness of this world gets under my skin and hits my last nerve; Resting, I continue to Trust God and continue to put my Faith to His Power. Resting. (Psalm 90:12; Gal 5:22)

When I don’t know what to do at any given time and any given situation, I remember that my first language is Prayer and Praise; and I get quiet so that I am able to hear the song that His Spirit is singing to my heart And soul, and I begin to sing the song that the Lord has given to me.

When every which way I turn, another ‘issue’ has risen it’s head, I Remember that His Power alone has kept millions of souls strong, brave And true, Lord how many more could have fallen by the way had they not Trusted in You? And His Spirit begins to lift me up in strength, in power, in truth and I am gladly reminded that I have Faith in Him, that I have spoken His grace to come see about me and His help is always working for us, Jesus!

Just His name spoken alone Will bring His Strength to my aid.

I Remember that the Faith has been kept alive and handed down to me by those followers who have struggled and suffered and died for Him; not by the dwellers in ease.

He has taught me, and His Spirit reminds me that, this Life, my life is not for my body but for my soul. As I sit and watch those that so often chose the way of life that best comforts the body and not the way that best grows the soul, I remember that He permits Only What is Best for the Soul And I continue to Trust God.

I remind myself to keep growing in this Truth so that His wonderful molding will Always be the result in my life. I tell others that want to hear and know and to grow in His Love. The others that also Trust God in the name of Jesus.

I have been taught that if I reject His Way, the best Way for my soul, then His Purpose in And for my life will become frustrated, that my best prayer will go unanswered, that my Spiritual Progress And my natural progress will be delayed, And that trouble and grief will store themselves up in my heart; creating a larger disconnect to my Life Line!

As He helps me to train my soul, I will be strengthened in my sharing, I will be able to rejoice fully in the Sharing of the discipline and the training that His Love molds me with.

I will stand with Him apart from my soul and welcome His training and I shall Shout and Rejoice at the Progress that He provides!

I ask Him, Lord, what are you doing in my life for today? And if His answer is that He is still working on the same circumstances from yesterday, I Smile, and Praise Him for my attitude has been changed; for I know that His illumination and revelation always help me to see the same situations differently.

And I boldly Shout and give to Him His Praise that by my Faith I will continue to TRUST In Him, God, my Lord!

"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of your Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 5:23

I Trust God!

To seek no more my own ways….
