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.




” I have never been……….”

I don’t “know much ”
but
One thing I know….is “who I am not ”

One amazing person gave me this verse today :
Exodus 4:12
” Now go; I will help you speak and will teach
you what to say.”

vs. 10
” Moses said to the LORD, ” O LORD,
I HAVE NEVER BEEN….eloquent, neither in
the PAST nor SINCE you have spoken to your
servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”

What caught me is that …
Moses had NEVER BEEN….
had NEVER BEEN….
HAD NEVER BEEN….

when we know…who we have ” NEVER BEEN ”
sometimes we think….
we can NEVER BE…..

only by the GRACE OF GOD –
” giving us what we DON’T deserve ”
and by the MERCY OF GOD –
” not giving us what we DO DESERVE ”

it should humble us to our knees…..
sometimes it is paralyzing ……

Vs. 11 –
” The LORD said to him, ” WHO GAVE MAN
his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute ?
Who gives him sight or makes him blind ?
IS IT NOT I , THE LORD ? ”
IS IT NOT I , THE LORD ?

vs. 13 ( ever felt this ? )
” O LORD, please send someone else to do it ”

So, what do you do ?
YOU WALK….
YOU WALK….
YOU WALK….
The only place you can walk is
IN THE SPIRIT….

for that is the ONLY PLACE….
your spirit….The Holy Spirit…….

Walk in the Spirit
not in your flesh
not in your intellect
not in your will
but in The Spirit.

~ The Desire for JESUS….

Posted on April 04, 2015 under Uncategorized

The DESIRE FOR JESUS ….when nothing is happening ?

Isn’t it amazing our walk with the LORD ?
How every EASTER…GOD reveals a new truth
Something that we just can’t leave go of …

This year to me, it is
The Seeking of JESUS
The Desire of JESUS more than anyone else….
More than friends
More than family
More than Rock
More than Facebook…

JESUS….a genuine hunger to think of Him..
a genuine hunger to live in the spirit with HIS SPIRIT
a desire to meditate on HIS WORD, HIS LIFE…HIS WALK
JESUS.

Reading…..How those near HIM….literally on earth
They were so …._____? –
to be able to literal live with HIM…

Jesus Christ burial officially confirmed HIS DEATH…..
* made me think, when NOTHING IS HAPPENING IN OUR LIVES….
no miracles, no huge revelations, no stirring,
even when we are placed in a ” testing – ON HOLD “…
it is just QUIET from JESUS’ side….

THEY SOUGHT HIM……
They even went to HIS body…..

When they couldn’t get ANYTHING FROM HIM……
THEY SOUGHT HIM…..

A huge, huge thing that stirs me…..
Is a life of ” what can I get out of this ?”
Is a life of ” how can I use this person ? ”

Even a self sacrificing life, can be self centered….

The seeking out of JESUS
When they could receive NOTHING FROM HIM……
The pure motive of desiring JESUS
The genuine – one way out – LOVE OF JESUS…truly.

** is that not true in our relationships on earth with others…
who would we contact if we could get nothing from them ?
who would we want to be with, learn from , live with ?
if we could get nothing from them ?

How do we LOVE JESUS…. out of ADORATION
or of what we can ABSORB from HIM ?

Joseph of Arimathea boldly went to Pilate for Jesus’ body.
* He was dead, could get nothing out of Him….
* He put himself out there to Pilate…
1. his request was bold, he wasn’t related to Jesus
2. he probably would be denied,
because Jesus was executed for treason
he went anyways…
3. the risk he face of handling a dead body ( defilement )
4. confessing openly that he was loyal to JESUS
and would receive people against him

We do many things “for JESUS” with the thing of HE IS ALIVE…
” if I ….”, ” then this will happen”…” and maybe ????”….

But when there is nothing in return
But when there is nothing going on positive
But when it is just ” TO JESUS “….
Go to JUST WORSHIP JESUS……in HIS HOUSE
Go to JUST LISTEN TO HIM……
Go to HIS WORD…..not to get so I can move my life on…
Go to HEAR…..His voice to actually LISTEN.

Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James,
went in the dark…..
went – while it was dark……

* do we seek JESUS out, when it is DARK…..
can’t see where our lives are going
no light is being shed on an area of our life….
nothing….
and JESUS is quiet……( nothing has happened on
the positive side from JESUS, can’t see anything about
to turn in that direction )

BUT OUR SEEKING…. is pure to STILL DESIRE HIM
BUT OUR SEEKING…. is humble and genuine to JUST DESIRE HIM….

They went….they sought….
The purest form of love….of JESUS ….
” Wanting JESUS , Loving JESUS with no self motives….
Just JESUS…..
I even think of that song ,
” And because HE LIVES……..then it turns right back to self…
I CAN FACE …. ” I ” can face tomorrow ….
As much as I love it…..
it still is putting us in that mode of ” I CAN FACE, with JESUS”
( it is ALL TRUTH )
but what about GOING to HIM…. for HIM alone ?
He went to the cross ….. for us alone.

~ In the place to hear…..

Posted on March 23, 2015 under Uncategorized

I am loving the book of 1 Samuel….
with a desire to never EVER have my life
to end as Saul’s.

1 Samuel 17
Reminds me of two things :

David showed his father honor…in his daily life.
Not in front of people, for others to see…
He heard his own father, did what he asked…
and that was a part of his creed.

Creed – ” a belief you live your life from ”

vs. 14. ” David was the youngest. The three
oldest followed Saul, 15. but David went back
and forth from Saul to tend his father’s sheep
in Bethlehem.”
It was where David was called to be at that time.
It was David just doing life
tending his father’s sheep…in a place where no
one seen all that David was doing…
in a place where he was only taking care of others…
in a place of taking care of other’s possessions..

But there was a deep creed in David to do “just this”.

vs. 17. Now Jesse said to his son David, ” Take this ephah
of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread for your
brothers and hurry to his camp. 18. Take along these
ten cheeses to the commander of their unit. See how
your brothers are and bring back some assurance from them,…”

* do we like it when others give us list to do…
tell us where to go…
who to go to
and how to do it
and what to bring back….and it is our parents ?

It is not a weakness to honor your father.
It says something for David…no where did you hear a
rising up of pride in David…. His Dad told him
from the midst of “tending sheep…to do this and that…
take this and that and bring back …the list…of
what to do…
How old was David ?

I believe that God sees our heart in how we handle
every situation of authority, family…of what God
asks us to do…..
a. tending sheep
b. taking food
c. and bring me back a report of how THEY are

That would be like weeding..and then your Dad
coming up to you and telling you to ….

No where was there a payoff for doing
No where was there a “how do you feel about..”
No where was there a head tilt from David….

David was someone with the heart after God….
God seen his heart after his own father….
God seen his heart after his Heavenly Father

vs. 22. David left his things with the keeper of
supplies, and ran to the battle lines and greeted
his brothers.

** he was excited in the relationships…

vs. 23. AS he was talking with them……

The obedience to his father, the servants heart, the
doing life as normal….GOD is placing David for
an extreme empowering by GOD…..something amazing..
the experience of all HE was in David…

23. As he was talking with them, Goliath,
the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out
from his lines and SHOUTED his USUAL defiance…

**( here is the greatness: )

vs. 23 ” ….and DAVID HEARD IT.”

and DAVID HEARD IT
and DAVID HEARD IT
and DAVID HEARD IT

*if David would not have honored his father…
been in that place with his Dad…tending his sheep
the experience shepherding ( bear / lion )
he would not have been PREPARED.
*if David would not have went to his brothers
obediently ….and enjoyed them –
vs. 22 “he ran.”
so there wasn’t a “grudge – defiant attitude of
doing what his father had asked him to do ”
he RAN and GREETED his brothers….

If he wouldn’t of RAN…he might of missed
the SHOUT of Goliath…not heard it !

* we know the rest of the testimony…

David tried to be someone he wasn’t with
the whole ARMOR thing…
David had to go back to what worked before
with God and himself…the 5 stones…
and by remaining in ” who he was ”
and honoring his dad
loving his brothers…
having a great attitude in doing it…
David was placed in front of people to do
something WAY BEYOND a bear and a lion….

*Did anyone know about David’s lion and bears
until that moment …
or was that between God and David ?
David had that under his belt, between him and God…

Run in what God is calling us to do…
Love who God has placed over us and obey
Absorb the prep…of our lion and bears

Walk in our everyday lives….
In HIS love and power….
and HE will let us hear our Goliath’s SHOUT !
