Father Teach Us How To Pray by Beth Auman

Our Hearts cry out to the Living God today for His Wisdom, Revelation, Counsel, Might, Knowledge and the Fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2) Oh Holy Spirit Come in Jesus name.

Many times when someone asks me to speak into their lives, this Scripture is the first to bubble up out of me.

I will cry out on their behalf – Oh God of our Lord Jesus the Anointed, Father of Glory: I call out to You on behalf of this person.

The person that you are praying for are His you know. When someone asks Him for His Word on the situation – that person belongs to Him and we are simply agreeing with the Word of the Lord over their life.

We cry out to  Abba on their behalf, give them minds ready to receive Your wisdom and revelation so that they will truly know You.

This is one of the most important things because when you are called by God to speak into the life of His precious people, you are speaking His Word into the life of someone who belongs to Him. It is a wonderful calling that must be very clear and kept in perspective.

Then we cry out Abba, open their hearts, and let the light of Your truth flood in.  Shine Your light on the hope You are calling them to embrace.

This is so very important because we all walk in the revelation that we have now as individuals before the Lord. We cannot walk in the revelation that another has. We must cry out for this one that we are praying for to see what Abba is showing them from His perspective. Not from our own. You cannot judge what Abba is revealing to another person’s heart, nor have the entire revelation that He is giving to them.

Then we ask Abba to reveal to them the glorious riches that He has prepared for their inheritance. Let them see the full extent of Your power that is at work in those of us who believe, and may it be done according to Your might and power.

A Prophet is a Standard Bearer. They are called by God to speak and open up the pathway of the light of God’s truth in another human beings life. Thus, speaking forth a New Standard for that beloved person to walk in. Thus drawing a blood line at this particular point in time and declaring over them Light Be. See the Truth and Be free. The person receiving His Word can then see and walk in the New Standard (the new boundary) that the Lord has set around them.

This Scripture in Ephesians 1: 17-23 is so very important because it is the same might and resurrection power that He used in the Anointed One Jesus Christ to raise Him from the dead and to position Him at His right hand in heaven. Another way to say this is that the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in them and it is He (The Holy Spirit that quickens their mortal flesh). Life and Light Be in Jesus name.

When a person is wandering around in a dry and weary place, it is a place of death and confusion. The attacks of the enemy are harsh and Abba calls those of us who know the truth to stand up and speak to the storms of life raging against our brothers and sisters. Those who are fellow believers in Jesus Christ as well as those who are given the opportunity to receive Him as Lord and Savior. This is why we speak Life and Light Be in Jesus name. The Resurrection Power of Jesus Christ literally brings the dead things back to life.

Please know this: When The Lord calls you to pray this over someones life, His Power is released. There is nothing over Him. He is above all rule, authority, power and dominion; over every name invoked, over every title bestowed in this age and the next. (Period).

Which means that when the Lord Himself opens the eyes of that person that He has called you to speak this Scripture over, they are being dealt with on such a level that their lives will Never be the same again. It is between The Lord and the person being prophetically spoken into.  You will know in part – but they will walk in the fullness. You are to speak only what the Spirit leads you to speak and leave the rest to God.

Remember in Verse 22 God has placed all things beneath His feet and anointed Him as the head over all things for His church.

Jesus our Lord has already done all that He is going to do. He gave His all and is now seated a the right hand of Abba in Heavenly places. He has won the final Victory and He will lead us and guide us as to how to pray, declare, decree and intercede over another persons life.

We must listen and obey. Yield our hearts, our minds, our eyes and ears unto Him knowing that The church is His body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all. We are His and we must treat all who He calls us to pray for and intercede for, prophecy over, declare and decree as we would our own body. Because we are all One Body in Christ Jesus. Allow Him to fill you to over flowing today – Read Ephesians 1:17-23 aloud to Him and allow Him to release His Light, His Truth into your situation and speak it aloud over all of those whom He calls you too.

Remember – We have the Victory in every situation because He gives us the Strategy in every situation. Jesus is LORD and He Loves you.

I Bless each and everyone of you today in Jesus name.

Love Beyond Measure,

Beth

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of February 19, 2017

I pray … that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe… Ephesians 1:17-19 (NASB)

Are you in need of wisdom to solve a baffling situation or revelation to grasp something beyond your understanding? Do you need renewed hope to see beyond impossible mountains too difficult to overcome? Wisdom requires discernment sometimes beyond our awareness, revelation can breakthrough as a dawning truth and hope is the anticipation of a fulfilled need or desire. We are reminded in this scripture that in knowing Him, our Lord Jesus Christ, gives to us the gift of His spirit of wisdom and revelation. We can also expect to “see” a lightening in our hearts to KNOW the hope of His calling. As His chosen ones, there is an awesome greatness of His power toward us who believe in the Lord. And, there is a wealth of glory that is His inheritance in us! May you know the greatness of His wisdom, power, and love for you! Amen!

Happy Love Day by Beth Auman

Happy Love Day to everyone  – Love with the Love of God everyday – the Never Ending, Everlasting, Agape Love of Abba Father. God’s Love Never Fails. He IS LOVE and His definition of Agape Love is found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NASB) Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; [a]bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love with His Love not the eros kind of love of this world – that eros love will  always fail and is the opposite of the Agape Love of God.

God gave His best to us to show us how much He Loves us – the Gift of Jesus, His Son. Love with His Love. Live by His definition of Love and His example of Love.

Love God First and yield to His Love. Then allow His Love to flow out of you to others. May the joy of the Lord truly be your strength today and everyday of your life.

I Bless each of you today and Love you Beyond Measure with God’s Agape Love in Jesus name.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of February 12, 2017

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Luke 11:9-10 (NIV)

If God supposedly knows everything and has a plan, why should we bother with prayer and asking for His help? Do you have childhood memories of playing hide-and-seek and how much fun it is to surprise someone in their hiding place? And how special it is to see the joyous expression on a loved one’s face when they walk into a surprise party in their honor? These verses reveal God’s heart in that He longs for us to seek Him and to find the overwhelming joy of how much He loves us. How awesome that God loves to reveal Himself to us and to surprise us with signs and wonders in answering our prayers. Be encouraged to keep on asking to receive, seeking to find and knocking for the open doors of God’s blessings and abundant provision for you today.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of February 5, 2017

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16 (NIV)

Have you ever been blinded by the penetrating brightness of the sun or by a winter snow storm where you couldn’t see the road ahead or the next step in front of you? Sometimes we can feel so blinded by sudden unexpected circumstances that we have no idea how to find our way out of the anxiety and fearful darkness. What comfort it is to find God’s promise to us that even when we are lost and can’t see, He is there to help us find our way. The Lord declares that He will turn the oppressive darkness into glorious light and that He will even make the rough places smooth before us. What an uplifting hope to have such assurance that the Lord is always there and will never abandon us in any helpless place! Whatever darkness you may find yourself in, be encouraged to call upon the Lord; reaching out to Him, to guide you into the light of His presence along the path of His peace.

My Heart Cries Out by Beth Auman

Some would say that a picture says a thousand words and I hope that this picture speaks to you.

I believe that we all need this Word today.  2 Samuel 22:7 is The Word for today.

My Heart cries out to the Living One True God – The Eternal. In my time of need I called upon the Eternal One; I called my True God for help.

He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came to His ears.

I know many today who are truly crying out to The Eternal One in Jesus name for help. Rest assured friends, He hears our cries and He is right there. He promises in His Word:

Deuteronomy 31:6 (VOICE)Be strong and brave, and don’t tremble in fear of them, because the Eternal your God is going with you. He’ll never fail you or abandon you!

Pray, Declare and Decree this with me today:  Oh Eternal One we come before You in Jesus Name. LORD – Our hearts cry out to you and we know that You hear our cries. Please Abba give Your Shalom – Your Completeness, Your Peace which passes every understanding, Your healing, Your provision, Your Mercy, Grace and Truth. You are the only answer and we yield to you. We are listening LORD, please show each of us Your way.  Show us what to declare and when to declare Your Word. Show us what to plant and where to plant. Show us what to harvest and where to harvest. Show us who to trust and who not to trust. Defend us LORD. We Trust Only You LORD we are listening and yielding unto You this day and every day of our lives.

We pray this, declare this and decree this in Jesus Mighty and Matchless Name Amen and Amen

Love Beyond Measure.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of January 29, 2017

“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43:1b-3a (NLT)

Are you feeling caught in raging rivers of difficulties or the consuming fires of oppression and afraid of being overcome? How wonderful to hear the Lord’s command at the beginning of these verses that we are not to be afraid because we belong to Him! Our God has already paid the exorbitant ransom price to set us free and He calls each of us by our name! The Lord declares that because we belong to Him we have nothing to fear. He will not allow any difficulty, oppression or consuming circumstance to destroy us and that He is with us no matter what we have to face in the days ahead. What an awesome truth that He is not only The Lord God Almighty and Creator of the Universe, but also chose to be our Savior through the blood of Jesus! Renew your trust in His loving care and protection by His saving grace today and rejoice that you no longer walk alone. Thank You, Lord!

Manifest Prayer by Beth Auman

Manifest LORD

Open the eyes of our hearts Lord we want to see You (Eph 1:17-29). Manifest Yourself this day to and through each of us. Abba, we lay down everything in our lives that is manifesting anything other than Your desire for our lives.

You have called and created each of us to go into all of the World and preach the Gospel, the Good News, Jesus Christ to this world (Mark 16:15). We are to shine brightly before men so that everywhere we go You Manifest through us. Shine through us so brightly that others are drawn to You (Matthew 5:16).

Oh LORD, forgive us for being so Eternity minded. So set in our ways wanting to get to heaven and not fulfilling our call to bring Heaven to Earth. (Matthew 6:10)

Lead us Lord to the Rock that is higher than ourselves (Psalm 61:2). May we all come to Mt. Zion and have the Hebrews 12:20-29 experience. We have access through our Savior Jesus, this is Your Plan.

Manifest Yourself through us because Jesus Christ is in us. Acts 17:28 (NASB) 28 for in Him we live and move and [a]exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ We declare and decree today – We are Your Children.  – Jesus is Our Lord and Savior – Lord Thy Kingdom Come and Thy Will be Done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus Name Amen

Hebrews 12:20-29 (VOICE)20 (They could not bear the command that was given: that if even a beast touches the mountain, it must be stoned. 21 The sight was so terrible that even Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”)[a]

22 No, instead you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, to heavenly messengers unnumbered, to a joyful feast, 23 to the assembly of the firstborn registered as heaven’s citizens, to God the righteous Judge of all, and to the spirits of all the righteous who have been perfected. 24 You have come to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant between God and humanity, and to His sprinkled blood, which speaks a greater word than the blood of Abel crying out from the earth.

25 See that you don’t turn away from the One who is speaking; for if the ones who heard and refused the One who spoke on earth faced punishment, then how much more will we suffer if we turn away from the One speaking from heaven— 26 the One whose voice in earlier times shook the earth now makes another promise: “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heavens”?[b] 27 The phrase, “Yet once more,” means that those things that can be shaken will be removed and taken away, namely, the first creation. As a result, those things that remain cannot be shaken. 28 Therefore, let us all be thankful that we are a part of an unshakable Kingdom and offer to God worship that pleases Him and reflects the awe and reverence we have toward Him, 29 for He is like a fierce fire that consumes everything.[c]

 Psalm 61 (NASB)

61 Hear my cry, O God; Give heed to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a refuge for me, A tower of strength [a]against the enemy. Let me [b]dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. [c]Selah. For You have heard my vows, O God; You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name. You will [d]prolong the king’s [e]life; His years will be as many generations.
He will [
f]abide before God forever; Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may preserve him.
So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may pay my vows day by day.

Ephesians 1:17-23 (NASB)17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the [a]knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart [b]may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the [c]saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

Daniel 12:3 Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

Mark 16:15 (NASB) 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Matthew 5:16 (NASB) 16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10 (NASB) 10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.

Own Your Testimony by Beth Auman

Own Your Testimony

Years ago our family visited a denominational church for a Testimony Service. We were really excited to hear the amazing things that the Lord had done for these people. Little did I know that this was a stepping stone and key for my own testimony and my ability to understand what the Testimony is.

Testimonies come through testing. You must own your Testimony. Testifying opens a door or portal for others to receive from the Lord. Not what you received though because God knows exactly what they need.  When we celebrate Him with others and are thankful for the amazing things that He has done in their lives, the door opens and His Power is made available to them.

God knows our motives and He moves in our lives accordingly through His Love, Mercy and Grace.

Each of these statements are true and I was really excited to hear of the good things that the Lord had done for the people of this denominational church.  A beautiful couple stepped up to the front and began to speak into the microphone.  Their testimony was that they had lived for the Lord their entire lives just as their Generations had. They were each saved early in their youth. Grew up in church, got married and had 4 beautiful daughters. Each of their daughters were serving the Lord and they were all so very happy and thankful to the Lord for their Blessed lives.

Well, I would love to say that tears rolled down my cheeks and that I praised the Lord Most High for His goodness toward these people. I did not do that. I was so mad and told God that I truly with all of my heart just didn’t understand. I thought that a Testimony was filled with pain and torture. That the tests and trials through fire brought forth The Testimony.

My Testimony is one of pain, abandonment, sickness, sadness and loss. I have walked through the fire of adversity and yes, I have the Testimony of Jesus Christ which Is the Spirit of Prophecy and have loved not my life unto death. I have literally almost died several times. I have Overcome by the blood of the Lamb out of the hand of the enemy.

The Lord was quick to point out that this is the difference.  These people came from a long line of Believers in Jesus Christ. Their Parents, Grandparents, Great Grandparents and Great Great Grandparents are all Believers and they nor their Generations submitted themselves to the devil.

Oh, my heart was pierced and yet I saw something that I didn’t see before.

Exodus 20:1-6 (NASB)

The Ten Commandments

20 Then God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of [a]slavery. “You shall have no other gods [b]before Me. “You shall not make for yourself [c]an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Revelation 12:11 NKJV 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death

Truly, I had prayed to the Lord for my eyes to be opened clearly and see from His perspective. That night He ministered to me about owning my testimony and that others must own theirs. Our Testimony is of Jesus, His Love, His Sacrifice, His Rising again, His willingness to do all of this and that if we were each the only one – He would have lived, been crucified, and rose again just for one of us.  He sees us generation-ally as well as individually. When we have yielded to the sinful nature that we were born with, we must walk it out until we fully yield to Him.

I made the decision that day to lay down every single bit of sin and shame, my Testimony of Jesus was mine and someone needed to hear His Goodness toward me. I acknowledged to The Lord that those people had the most beautiful Testimony that I had ever heard and that I was angry at myself and was ashamed of myself.  I repented and asked for forgiveness because the good news of Jesus Christ was active in my life and although I had been such a sinner – He had forgiven me. I could not live my life feeling less than because someone’s family chose to follow the Lord. Oh to be able to stand before the Lord with your generations and proclaim that you have served the Lord as a generation. That was my goal and from that day I owned my Testimony.

Back to my reality. There are millions upon millions of people who don’t know Jesus on this earth right now. Your Testimony is the Testimony that can unlock the Door (Jesus). You are a carrier of Hope for someone. You are a bright light for someone. If you have yielded your life to Jesus, Been Born Again, Crowned Him Lord of your life, you have a Testimony. Your Testimony must be shared and The Lord will give you peace about sharing His Goodness toward you.

Lay down shame, sadness and regret and begin a Generational line of Born Again Believers in Jesus Christ. Trust the Lord that Your Testimony, though it may be a giant puzzle filled with ups, downs, twists and turns. You are His Masterpiece and He chose you. Your Testimony can bring freedom to another person.

It is my prayer that someday our Generations will stand before the Lord and that every one of them will live for the Lord and have overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony not loving their lives to the death. I have asked for the Salvation of my entire bloodline in Jesus name.

Ask for yours today. Take a step of faith and draw the Blood line of Jesus around your Generations. Take one Step at a time and Overcome by the Blood of the Lamb – Out of the hand of the enemy. No matter where you are right now, you can be an overcomer by the Blood of the Lamb and God will use your testimony to bring the Light and Hope of Jesus Christ to others. Own your Testimony and Proclaim it, someone needs to hear it.

I Bless each of you in Jesus name today and Praise the Lord for you.

Hope this GEM (God Empowered Moment) has been helpful. Made you hopeful and opened the Door – Jesus Christ over you. Step on through and Overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by the Word of your Testimony.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of January 22, 2017

When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:7,9 (NKJV)

Have you ever known someone, or maybe you are someone, who tries to plan for everything and feels like everything must have a plan? Oh, how frustrating when all our well laid plans fall apart! At some time or another we all need to be reminded of the truth of this scripture, that we can plan and set admirable goals all we want, but it is the Lord that directs our steps. I am sure each of us could tell stories of sorrows with hidden blessings, of hopes lost with joys found or disasters that have lead to surprising opportunities or miracles. It is well and good to make plans to our hearts content; yet still be pliable and yielding to the Lord, trusting in Him to direct our steps. After all, we also have this promise that when our steps please the Lord, He is even able to make our enemies be at peace with us. Yes, Lord!
