What would happen if we said YES to God?

This became embedded in my soul when God asked me to go to Africa in September of 2008. The outcome? 786 souls were saved in 34 days! Am I throwing around numbers to impress someone? No. I am throwing them around to proclaim that GOD is GOD. I am just a common individual who knows who she is not, but walks in who HE IS. What is God asking you to do right now? When we know that we know - it is Him asking. Say yes, obey with no hesitation.




~~ ” What we tell others…..”

Judah was in a drought…..* bad situation…..
* went to the cisterns = no water
* ground is cracked = no rain
* doe deserts her newborn = no grass
* donkeys lose their sight = no pasture

Prophets came into this hurting, hurting
situation and tell these hurting people…
The people was even fasting, offering sacrifices ,
at this point, trying……but not dealing with ….

Here it is : Jeremiah 14:13
” But I said, ” Ah, Sovereign Lord, the
prophets keep telling them, YOU WILL NOT
SEE THE SWORD or SUFFER FAMINE.  Indeed
, I will give you lasting  peace in this place.”

* sounds like something God would tell hurting
people…. maybe in a hospital.
maybe at a trauma point in their lives…

vs. 14   Then the Lord said to me,  ( straight from
the LORD )  ” The prophets are prophesying lies
in my name,. I have NOT SENT them or appointed
them or spoken to them.  They are prophesying to
you FALSE visions, divinations, idolatries and
delusions OF THEIR OWN MINDS.”

God showed me,  BE VERY CAREFUL….even
when we want peoples hurting to stop, even when
we are face to face with those that are backslidden,
even when it could be a close friend…whom ever.

* Did God truly send us to those people to speak
from HIM ?
* Did God tell us to say what we are actually saying ?
* Is the answer we are giving to their void..
Is the answer we are giving to their hurt + need….

TRUTH
Truth that will heal
TRUTH that will take them straight to the LORD

To not placate  their situation…..Let them feel soothing
words to help them FEEL…at that moment….just
that ~  a soothing peace…that is NOT REAL.

Then God said,  (vs17 )
” SPEAK THIS WORD TO THEM: ”

Then it goes into the what the LORD feels for them
in the depth of the TRUTH….and in that the deep
response will come :
vs. 20 ” OH LORD, we acknowledge our wickedness
and the guilt of our fathers; we have indeed sinned
against you.”  ” ……. O LORD our God Therefore
OUR HOPE IS IN YOU…….”

When we are in peoples depth of their lives….
* do we listen and tell them what will make them
feel better for moment ?
* do we victimize counsel them…( only to let them
stay a victim ?  So they will come back and talk to
us ?
*  Do we want them to feel better to us or to the LORD ?
* Do we truly want JESUS to deal with the ” dot ” in their
lives and truly give them complete FREEDOM …
* Does showing them the dot scare us more….
Than the depth of pulling them truly out of this
deep cycle of sin/ satan /  etc.  in their lives ?

What we tell others…..  Did God send us to them ?
Did God truly tell us to say it ?
Is it straight truth from HIS WORD ?

Did God promise….the outcome we are telling them ?
Can we say that ?
The soothing comes through :

JESUS’ TRUTH + OBEDIENCE + JESUS’ INFLUENCE

~~ ” Where you live ~ FROM ”

1

Posted on November 07, 2014 under Uncategorized

Before you had children you lived from –
no kids, your own life, your own schedule life……..
Before a death of a parent you lived from –
having that call that would always come,
” a how did this go, or that concerned , life…..,
Before a trauma…disease diagnosed you lived from –
a more carefree life, free from life….
Before your spouse died you lived from –
a human connectedness, a horizontally filled life….

It is a new place to ” LIVE FROM “…
the conception of where your thots come from
the conception of where you emotions come from
the, where your joy, your peace, your contentment
comes from……

When God gives us a revelation so deep…..
That YOU PRAY…..this is a conception of where
my life will NOW COME FROM….and how it will
CHANGE MY LIFE !!  that is my desire !!

Eph. 2: 4
” But God,  ( I always love the BUT GOD …seriously
BUT GOD, who created the universe, is Sovereign, HOLY,
Righteous, all knowing,  that BUT GOD ?

Eph 2: 4
But God, who is rich in mercy for HIS GREAT LOVE
wherewith HE LOVED US.”

“but GOD , HE LOVED US ”
” but GOD, HE LOVES US ”  ( now today )

I have battled , battled all my life
with the spirit of offense, still do…..
What someone says, I can turn it to negative,
I think they surely mean some harm to me…..
No one could think genuine good thots for or to me……
No one could just “love me ”   ( serious battle of my mind )

A ” doer mentality….. you will love me if I can or will …blah blah ”
” if the hospital gets built then…..
you don’t feel ( emotion ) that people can genuinely love you..
so you can turn them into negative as well as self……etc.

But God has given me lately a hunger for GENUINE LOVE…
and I am like , ok…. you want me to stand in the corn field, where ?
** just being honest . ( not saying I am not love )
but HIM taking me TO THIS :
He gave me that hunger……
because He was going to give me a revelation.
TO LIVE FROM , to LIVE and GIVE FROM…
To be freed from searching,  free from wanting,
Free from ” do you really love me, or from my concept..
if you truly did, you would ”   The SELF GRID.

Even to turn my shoulders, squint my eyes in searching for
from HUMANS….seriously !

To be content……………………………ahhhhhhhhhhhh

” a waterfall, power of God over flowing, hitting the rock at the
bottom…..a waterfall moment w/ God ”

HE LOVING ME……is all the LOVE coming in….I NEED.
HE LOVING ME……is all the LOVE coming in….I NEED.

PERIOD.  ( that is where I can live from )

All , every day I need to concentrate on, is LOVING OUT….
Love all I can , to every person God gives me
Love all I can, in what ever way I can for the other person.

My cup is full, My heart is full,  from ” just ”  GOD
* kind of like the “but God….but JUST GOD…..

IS ENOUGH…full …overflowed…..

If I am in Africa alone – HE has me full of LOVE
If I am in S. Ohio alone –  HE has me full of LOVE
If your Mom and dad died…..HE has me full of LOVE
If your husband died –  HE has you full of LOVE
If your child died –  HE has you full of LOVE
If your husband left you after years of marriage ?
What ever the case, if you stand in a battle of
something so deep, you can’t climb out today….

Eph.2:4 

   But God, who is rich in mercy for HIS GREAT LOVE
wherewith HE LOVED US.”


A true joy filled life is full…..without any more searching
OF FINDING HIM…sitting with HIM….walking with HIM…
and what , who, how ever HE wants to put some ICING on
the cupcake…through HUMANS…..is just that  ” ICING ”

God alone is our ” cupcake”
and Reesey hates cupcakes with icing.

HE LOVES US…God rich in HIS MERCY…..
God rich in HIS MERCY…….HE LOVES US.

** The challenge today to me, to all of us….
When in conversation…
When in conversation have you been at the intersection
where YOU KNOW….only God can help, or you NEED
the help of God….and the depth of , ” the spiritual” to
come in……then _________________________

a.  you put more of your words in.
b.  you give them your experience
c.  you change the subject to go “lighter”
d.  you left it blank

and all the above didn’t go to where God needed it to go.

HIS WORD….HIS actually spoken / written Word of God
HIS WORD spoken by Him , breathed by HIM
Moved by HIM ?

” the follow through, the no bulking spiritually ? ”
The infallible Word of God,  Today !

Do we have to say the Book , the verse….?
But do we not say it unfiltered , so its power stays
so true, so ministering, so real that it cuts to the
bone and marrow,  when the HURTING is …
OH SO WANTING to be relieved of their pain ?

and we had them a ” band aid “….and shrug our shoulders ?
” at least I didn’t offend them and they may come and see
or talk to me again ….”   really ?
THEY NEED GOD – unfiltered…to the core…..today, now.

Jeremiah 11: 6
” The Lord said to me,  PROCLAIM all these words
in the town of Judah, in the streets of Jerusalem…..”

God has the answer to the ones we meet on the St.
God has the answer for the ones we listen to today.

What the LORD says to us…..

REPEAT….Proclaim..
” IF they will hear my voice ”
” how can they hear….without ”

They have heard enough of us……
We can listen and listen and talk and talk….
But the WORD OF GOD….changes.
But the WORD OF GOD….changes.

I know it is 2014…..
It works.  Straight Bible….to People…..works.

Example….
Yesterday walking as a ” Factory/ business Chaplain ”
I walk around, jack around with people every Tues.
Went into one of the rougher sights …. a young guy
who has been there a couple of months says….
” so who are you….what ….do you do ? ”   smile…
He had told me what had happened to him in his life,
that week….a guy, pretty tough guy, sharing……
I had to listen…not be “janelle”…..
but obey to the follow through…..
I went in….
completely through to sharing
THE WORD OF GOD……
his face as I talked changed in demeanor,
color,  a tilt came to him…….
all worked stopped for that moment…..
His reply ,  ” thanx for showing me who you are ”
I was walking away, turned back and said,
” I am serious…..I am serious “……
** as to say,  GOD’S WORD IS REAL……
GOD MEANS WHAT HE SAYS TO YOU
GOD THINKS of YOU……that way exactly.

IT WORKS….IT IS EXCITING….
the participation of the KINGDOM…on earth as it is
in HEAVEN…every day, every where,
” Proclaim all these words….in the towns of Judah
in the streets of Jerusalem ”

Where is the sheepish, the hold back, the hesitation
in the word PROCLAIM ?

Because GOD knows what HIS WORD can do….
in the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS !
