Scripture for the week of July 21, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. —the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. Jeremiah 31:17,18b (NKJV)

Have you ever gazed upon the innumerable stars in the night sky, admired the beauty of a sunset or captivated by the ocean depths and wondered in awe of the power and majesty of God? It is really easy to then feel so small and insignificant with doubts that God would care about us and our circumstances. Mighty God in this verse means Warrior, a Champion and Hero. The God who made all of creation, Warrior Lord of all the Angel Armies of Heaven, is also our Champion and Hero! Are you battle weary of circumstances beyond your control or blind sighted by troubles you least expected? No matter what you are facing, be encouraged and trust that the great and powerful arm of Mighty God (El-Gibbor), your Champion, your Hero, is outstretched to you! There is nothing too hard for our God to protect and provide, to lead and guide us in all our circumstances. Yes, Amen!

Love Day Blessings To Everyone Today

Let us all remember what Love actually is.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Everyday belongs to YHWH. So declare His Word.

24 This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 NKJV

I am Thankful for all of you whom Abba gave to me to Love. His Love is in my heart and my goal in life is to Love like Yeshua (Jesus) my Messiah!!

Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Overflow in Thanksgiving by Beth Auman

Welcome the Month of Av 5783. Receive these keys for the Month of Av.

Colossians 2:6-8 contains keys to unlock our ability to overflow, it also contains a warning. Abba always intended for each of us to minister to others out of the overflow. Yeshua (Jesus) is our portion. As we live our lives rooted in Him, continuing to be built up in Him and confirmed in our trust in Him as we have been taught. Then we overflow in thanksgiving. Then we can minister to others out of the overflow. Not out of our portion, thereby depleting ourselves.

Have you ever been so thankful to Abba that you literally could not contain it? You had to go testify of His Goodness? Testifying is ministering out of your overflow.

Colossians 2:8 gives us a warning though.. watch out, so that no one will take you captive by means of philosophy and empty deceit, following human tradition which accords with the elemental spirits of the world but does not accord with the Messiah.

We have been given keys to overflowing today. Remaining deeply rooted in Yeshua (Jesus). Being warned not to be taken captive by the spirits or philosophy of this world (doctrines of devils).

Abba, we come before You today and repent for ever being taken captive by anything worldly. Forgive us in Yeshua’s Name. Our desire is to be so deeply rooted in Yeshua (Jesus), continually living our lives United with Him. We submit ourselves today, resisting the devil, knowing that as we submit, the devil will flee from us according to Your Word in James 4:7.

Abba, fill each of us to overflowing with Your Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), He IS The Key to all that we need. Help each of us minister to the lost out of the overflow. Lead, guard, protect and provide for us along Your well lit path for our lives. Lay Your plumbline as a boundary for each of us. We will not step out of the boundary You lay for us. In Yeshua’s Name. Amen


Colossians 2:6-8 CJB

6 Therefore, just as you received the Messiah Yeshua as Lord, keep living your life united with him. 7 Remain deeply rooted in him; continue being built up in him and confirmed in your trust, the way you were taught, so that you overflow in thanksgiving.

8 Watch out, so that no one will take you captive by means of philosophy and empty deceit, following human tradition which accords with the elemental spirits of the world but does not accord with the Messiah.

I am God’s Child By Beth R Auman

DSC02274Have you ever struggled with self-worth? Allowed the devil to rob you of your self-esteem, beat you down and wear you out? We all have those days – however, we do have a choice. God’s Word says that we are Overcomers in Christ Jesus.  It is a choice to walk in the overcoming power that Jesus blood sacrifice provided for us. He was born, lived a sinless life, died and was resurrected so that we could overcome that devil through His sacrifice and just like Salvation – Overcoming is our choice.

We can still be saved by the blood of Jesus and go to heaven and never know how to overcome.  That’s not living the life that God planned for us. We are all going to have trials and tribulation – these are to strengthen our faith – to bring us closer to the Lord – not to defeat us. Jesus defeated the devil at the cross – he is a toothless, defeated foe. He comes only to kill, steal and destroy John 10:10. To draw you away from God’s best for your life. However, the devil cannot take one thing from you that you don’t give him. God always provides a way out, 1 Corinthians 10:13. It’s your choice to choose Him and not your circumstance and you must tell Him that you choose Him in each and every circumstance.

This is the key: In each and every circumstance we must choose the Lord first – speak life into our circumstance first and life will be. God is faithful and when we speak life – life is speaking God’s word into our situation – being positive and death is agreeing with the devils negativity in our situation. God’s plan for us is always good and positive.

Deuteronomy 30:19 (NASB) 19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your [a]descendants,

Proverbs 18:21 (NASB) 21 Death and life are in the [a]power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

I have had the awesome opportunity to spend time with several amazing women who have also struggled with self-worth, been beaten down and worn out. But by the blood of the Lamb of God and declaring and decreeing and agreeing with God’s word and His good plan– they have become the overcomers that Jesus spoke of in Revelation 12:11.

Please join me in this Overcoming Declaration  – say this as many times as you need to – allow the Lord to impart Himself – Faith – Joy – Victory and Peace into you so that the devil can never wear you down again.  Remember Jesus Christ is Lord and

Declare this out loud:

Lord – I choose You and I declare that I am a child of The Most High God. I am blood bought and paid for.

The same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in me and He quickens my mortal flesh.

Galatians 4:7 You no longer have to live as a slave because you are a child of God. And since you are His child, God guarantees an inheritance is waiting for you.

1 John 3:9 Everyone who has been born into God’s family avoids sin as a lifestyle because the genes of God’s children come from God Himself. Therefore, a child of God can’t live a life of persistent sin.

1 John 5:1 It’s easy to say “I love God,” but genuine love reflects God’s love. If we belong to God, then we will love each other regardless of how hard love is. Everyone who trusts Jesus as the long-awaited Anointed One is a child of God, and everyone who loves the Father cannot help but love the child fathered by Him.

Revelation 12:11   By the blood of the Lamb and the word of their witnesses, they have become victorious over him, For they did not hold on to their lives, even under threat of death.

1 Corinthians 7:23 The Voice (VOICE) 23 A high price has been paid for your freedom, so don’t devalue God’s investment by becoming a slave to people.

John 14:26 The Voice (VOICE) 26 The Father is sending a great Helper, the Holy Spirit, in My name to teach you everything and to remind you of all I have said to you.

Ephesians 5:17-20 King James Version (KJV)

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

1 Corinthians 12:3-12 The Voice (VOICE)

With that in mind, I want you to understand that no one saying “Jesus is cursed” is operating under God’s Spirit, and no one confessing “Jesus is Lord” can do so without the Holy Spirit’s inspiration.

Now there are many kinds of grace gifts, but they are all from the same Spirit. There are many different ways to serve, but they’re all directed by the same Lord. There are many amazing working gifts in the church, but it is the same God who energizes them all in all who have the gifts.

Paul’s description of the works of the Spirit, the Lord (Jesus), and God (the Father) links the three persons together in remarkable ways. Although Paul never articulates the doctrine of the Trinity, what he writes here about the Godhead relationship—their community of persons—becomes the raw materials used by later believers to construct the church’s teaching on the Trinity. In this chapter the apostle emphasizes the agency of the Spirit. For him the Spirit is not just an impersonal force or feeling; He is just as much a person within the Trinity as the Father and the Son. Accordingly, the Spirit chooses where to impart gifts as He works together with the Father and the Son to build up the church.

Each believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit’s power and presence. That gift is given for the good of the whole community. The Spirit gives one person a word of wisdom, but to the next person the same Spirit gives a word of knowledge. Another will receive the gift of faith by the same Spirit, and still another gifts of healing—all from the one Spirit. 10 One person is enabled by the Spirit to perform miracles, another to prophesy, while another is enabled to distinguish those prophetic spirits. The next one speaks in various kinds of unknown languages, while another is able to interpret those languages. 11 One Spirit works all these things in each of them individually as He sees fit.

12 Just as a body is one whole made up of many different parts, and all the different parts comprise the one body, so it is with the Anointed One.

Romans 8:11 The Voice (VOICE) 11 If the Spirit of the One who resurrected Jesus from the dead lives inside of you, then you can be sure that He who raised Him will cast the light of life into your mortal bodies through the life-giving power of the Spirit residing in you.

Romans 8:11 (KJV) 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

John 10:10 The Voice 10 The thief approaches with malicious intent, looking to steal, slaughter, and destroy; I came to give life with joy and abundance.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (NASB) 13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

Scripture of the Week By JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 8, 2014

jobeth12The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalms 121:5-8 (NIV)

Have you ever prayed and prayed, yet still wondered where the Lord is when you are facing difficult trials, feeling vulnerable, unprotected and all alone? Three times in these verses it is declared that the Lord is watching over you. This type of watching is like the secret service agents; meaning He is guarding, protecting and defending which is so much more than just keeping an eye on you. These scriptures tell us the Lord stands guard over every detail of your life, protecting you from ALL harm and able to defend you in all your coming and going. May we find peace in the assurance of the covering shade of the Lord’s presence over us in the oppressive heat of our days and the warmth of His love in the cold darkness of our nights. Thank you, Lord.

 

Scripture for the week of June 1, 2014

JB16 Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.              Isaiah 30:18 (RSV)

Have you ever felt the surprising sting of injustice from a friend or someone you trusted? You may also have longed for exoneration not knowing where to turn for help. The picture we need to grasp in this verse is that the Lord is practically sitting on the edge of the seat of His throne just waiting for the opportunity to extend His unmerited favor in grace toward us. Then He stands up in the fullness of His power to bestow His mercy upon us and extends His righteous judgement on our behalf. As we persevere to wait upon the Lord, we have the hope of His abundant blessings that comfort, heal and restore us in the goodness of a his unfailing love that covers and heals all transgressions (Proverbs 10:12). Oh, give thanks unto the Lord!

Scripture for the week of May 25, 2014

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Have you ever been paralyzed by an overwhelming fear that seems to shatter all hope and scatter all your faith? Fear is the friend of doubt and unbelief and the robber of our faith. The KJV Bible mentions “fear not”, “do not fear” and “do not be afraid” 110 times and it is usually followed by exhortations declaring that the Lord is with you. God makes five promises in this scripture. He is with you and He is your God. He gives strength to replace your weariness, He will help and He will hold you up in the power of His righteousness. So, let the power of His presence, strength and righteousness overcome your fears of failure and inadequacy. May your hope and faith be renewed in God’s love, goodness and provision for you today.

Scripture for the week of May 18, 2014

JoBeth09I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Many are the woes of the wicked but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him. Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart! Psalm 32:8,10-11 (NIV)

Have you ever experienced a time when just by catching a look from someone you would know, without a doubt, exactly what you had to do or where you needed to go? Most of us can easily remember “the look” from a parent, a teacher, or someone that clearly spoke louder than words! The key to be directed by “the look” implies you had to turn your eyes in their direction. This scripture teaches us that the Lord has His eyes upon us. When we turn our eyes away from the cares and confusion of our circumstances to focus our trust upon Him; He is ready and willing to teach us, guide us, council us and surround us with His unfailing love. Then, with uplifted hearts we can sing, rejoice and be glad in the Lord our loving God!

Scripture for the week of May 11, 2014

JoBeth08And the angel answered and said unto her , “…For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:35a,37-38 (NKJV)

Are you facing impossibilities and in need of miracles? What a hope filled declaration by the Angel Gabriel when he states that nothing is impossible with God! Previously, before this verse in Luke, Gabriel had told Mary she was to give birth to the son of God and she had responded, “How can this be?” As you are looking at your needs, evaluating limited possibilities or facing dead ends ahead and also asking yourself “How can this happen?” or “Is there any hope?” Remember that nothing is impossible with our God Who is able to move mountains, part the seas and open prison doors for His servants that fully put their trust in Him. Yes and amen, Lord!

 

Scripture for the week of May 5, 2014

JB06But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. Psalm 3:3-5 (NKJV)

Have you ever felt like you need a protector and defender or someone to help hold your head up when troubles just seem too much? And have you ever cried out for help when no one was there and you couldn’t even sleep to escape the hopelessness? The Lord makes several wonderful promises to us in these verses; declaring His compassionate care for us when we are distraught, frail and feel abandoned. 1) He is our shield, protector and defender. 2) He is our glory; bestowing His goodness, praise and honor upon us. 3) He lifts up our head and restores our hope. 4) He hears our prayers and cries for help! 5) He grants us sleep and rest in our weariness. 6) He sustains us and provides all our needs. Rest in the assurance today and everyday that He will hear your voice and answer you from His holy hill because of His great love for you. Selah!

Scripture for the week of April 27, 2014

JB04The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

Have you ever come to an unexpected fork in the road, afraid and discouraged without a clue of which way to go? This scripture was spoken to Joshua when Moses told him he would be leading the Israelites to the promised land. You also may be holding onto hopes and promises but feel like you have lost your way. What an encouragement this promise of the Lord’s presence and guidance must have been to Joshua and it is for you, too. Grab hold of this promise for yourself and allow the Lord to establish the hope of His presence with you. You can release your fears and discouragements knowing without a doubt that The Lord is with you, He’ll never leave you; and He is going before you to lead you into the future, hope and blessings He has prepared just for you! Praise the Lord!

Scripture for the week of April 20, 2014

JB03Jesus said to her (Martha, Lazarus’ sister), “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” John 11:25 (NKJV)

Do you believe that Jesus rose from the dead? In these scriptures after Jesus declares that He is the resurrection and the life, He asks Martha if she believes even before He raises Lazarus from the dead. With a proclamation such as this we are not given the choice to believe that Jesus was just a good teacher and example for us to follow. He is either a lunatic, a liar or the way the truth and the life, just as He says (John 14:6). The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:17,19 that if Jesus was not raised from the dead our faith is worthless and we are to be pitied above all men. The resurrection of Jesus is the crux of the whole Bible, the pivot point of all history, our only hope for meaning in this life and our promise of eternity. Happy Easter! The tomb was empty, He is risen, He is risen indeed!

 Scripture for the week of April 13, 2014

JBeth02“You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. Isaiah 43:10 NKJV

Have you ever considered that there is a big difference between “believing in God” verses “believing God”? Believing in God allows us to believe what we want to believe about God, and then attempt to fit Him into the box of our own understanding. Believing God means we have chosen to believe God is Who He says He is; which activates our faith in His Word to also believe that He will do what He says He will do. God declares in this verse that He has chosen us even before we choose Him! He invites us to “know” Him in an intimate relationship that will open the eyes of our understanding with the ability to BELIEVE He Is The One and Only True GOD that always was and always will be! Yes, Amen!

Scripture for the week of April 6, 2014

JBeth01Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Mt 6:19-21

On the road of life, in pursuit of your success, love and happiness, have you had some detours or crashes along the way? Friends betray us, jobs don’t last, wealth can be lost, and family can cause the deepest of wounds. This weeks scripture challenges us to ask, “How do I lay up my treasure in heaven where there is no corruption or loss?” Micah 6:8 tells us, “And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” We also read in John 16:33 “In this life you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world.” So place your heart and hope in Jesus, Who overcomes the troubles of this world. By His grace, live honorably with compassion, extending mercy to others in humble dependence upon the Lord. You will know the blessings of God’s favor, experience His peace that passes understanding and lay up treasures in heaven.

Scripture for the week of March 30, 2014

Breakthrough“The breaker goes up before them; they break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, and the Lord at their head.” Micah 2:13 (NASV)

Is there some situation in your life desperately in need of a breakthrough? There are several things we can learn about the Lord in this weeks scripture. He leads and goes before us. He stands between us and our enemies and in times of trouble He can break us out of places that hold us captive. The Lord of the hosts of heavenly armies is able to breakthrough any of our enemies plans against us. It is our God’s desire for us to know Him as The Lord of the breakthrough. He wants to break down walls of captivity, to make the crooked places straight and to make the rough places smooth on your behalf. Trust the Lord of the breakthrough to break through for you!

Scripture for the week of March 23, 2014

Snow09Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NKJV)

Is your hope running low with the heaviness of discouragement and the frustration of too many disappointments, especially in someone you trusted? What an encouragement to be reminded in this verse that we have a God Who is hope! He is able to renew our hope in an abundance that is more-than-enough. On top of that, He will fill us with an overflowing joy and peace trusting in Him afresh to move mountains in our defense and opening miraculous doors of provision through the power of His Holy Spirit working on our behalf. May the Holy Spirit fill you with the uplifting hope, joy and peace you need today.

Scripture of the week for March 16, 2014

Snow06Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)

Are you feeling loaded down and exhausted from carrying problems and discouragements with a longing for rest from your weariness? To be yoked with Jesus requires us to submit to His plans and direction for us. Though none of us enjoy or welcome the idea of submission, it is easier when we understand it is His willingness to carry our heavy loads and His desire to plow the paths straighter ahead for us. Be encouraged to accept the Lord’s invitation to walk in humility yoked with Him and find the rest you long for in your soul. Cast your cares on Jesus today (1 Peter 5:7) and God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

The Breaker Anointing By JoBeth Kested

Breakerphoto

Some years ago, within a couple of weeks, at three different times, I had people that didn’t know me personally share that I prayed with a “Breaker Anointing”. I had attended some prayer gatherings and conferences where there was the opportunity to be prayed over to receive encouraging prophetic Words from the Lord. While praying for me, one person said they saw a picture of a charging rhino with no fear that couldn’t be stopped. Another person declared seeing a picture of a huge bulldozer able to move massive boulders out of the way. And a third time, someone shared they saw prayers like cannon balls that could break through and break down thick and high walls. All three used the term “Breaker Anointing” when they prayed for me.

At that time I was fairly new to learning about strategic and spiritual warfare type prayer and had never heard anyone refer to a Breaker Anointing. Along with several other praying friends, we asked the Lord to give us understanding and to give us insight from His Word. The Lord led us to the following scripture verses showing us that He is the God of the breakthrough and He is “The Breaker Anointing”.

“The breaker goes up before them; they break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, and the Lord at their head.”Micah 2:13 (NASV)

“The Lord has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he (David) named that place Baal Perazim (Hebrew meaning the Lord “bursts” or breaks through). 2 Samuel 5:20b (NASV)

For it is a day of trouble and treading down and perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the Valley of Vision— breaking down the walls… Isaiah 22:5 (KJV)

There are several things to understand that the Lord reveals about Himself in these scriptures. 1) He goes before us. He leads. He stands between us and our enemies. 2) He is like a dam that bursts forth with rushing water that cannot be stopped and washes away everything in its path. 3) In times of trouble, heaviness and confusion He can break down any walls that hold us captive. 4) He is the Lord of the hosts of heavenly armies and there is no enemy army standing against us that can stop His breakthrough on our behalf.

Then I inquired of the Lord for greater understanding on how I had learned to pray with His Breaker Anointing. Let me add that my understanding of breakthrough was mostly how a runner finishes the race and breaks through across the finish line. Yes, that is a good picture of breaking through, but The Breaker Anointing is much more than that. It requires an intimate relationship with the Lord that goes way beyond our own strength and talent.

The Lord first revealed a picture of me learning to dance with Him; allowing Him to hold me close to His heart, following His footsteps and yielding to His lead. In learning His ways and how to trust in Him completely, I could follow Him with His slightest touch. Every so often He would send me twirling away to joyfully watch me dance more boldly and powerfully. Each time, I would then quickly return to His loving embrace; yielding more and more closely to His lead. This showed me that we become stronger, bolder and more powerful in prayer the more we cling the Lord, understanding His ways, yielding to His slightest touch, following His every footstep. Even through the battles and weariness of prevailing prayer and intercession, we need to lean closely into His loving embrace in order to clearly hear His voice, to delight in the joy of knowing His heart and praying His will in extending the purposes of His Kingdom.

Then I was reminded of how my husband and I used to love watching the winter breaking waves when we lived for a couple of years on the Big Island of Hawaii. On the Kona side, there is a beach referred to by the locals as Children’s Beach. In the summer months it is an enjoyable, safe and shallow beach, wonderful for snorkeling and surrounded by shady palm trees. But, in the winter all the beautiful white sand is washed away when great and powerful waves swell up to break upon the lava reef rocks over and over again. As each big wave breaks, the water rushes to the shore, then is swept back out into the deep to build another breaker wave. Over time the lava rocks have been made smooth by the force of the winter breaker waves. In prayer, there are seasons to enjoy being His child and to give thanks, delighting in all the beauty He has created around us. But, then there are times when we must yield to the flow and direction of His Holy Spirit to pray warring breaker prayers that are essential in His Kingdom purposes to breakthrough our enemies attacks that would destroy us and others in our spheres of influence.

It is our God’s desire for us to know Him as The Lord of the breakthrough. He wants to break down walls of captivity, to make the crooked places straight and to make the rough places smooth as we learn to pray with The Breaker Anointing against powers, principalities and wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) declaring “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Lord Jesus, help us learn to cling to You, follow Your footsteps, yielding to Your every tender touch that we might know You as The Lord of the Breakthrough in our lives. And, how to hear Your voice in prayer with “The Breaker Anointing”. Amen.

Jesus or World By Beth Auman

fpx040307-09Are you looking to Jesus Christ as your Lord, Healer, Truth, Redeemer, Friend, Victory and Grace – or are you looking to something worldly – What is being proclaimed out of your mouth today and to whom are you giving all glory, honor and praise.. are you serving God or mammon? People are watching, you are a living epistle of whatever you’ve put your trust in- The Lord is watching too..lead people along the well lit path that God has created for them.. it’s full of love, peace, joy and Jesus..

Lord – I pray for all of my friends and family today that You will open the eyes of their understanding – so that they may know the hope to which You have called them – see the well lit path that You have designed and walk in the center of it – according to Eph 1:17-29 in Jesus name Amen

Just Trust By Conny H.

fpx041107-02Nearly two years ago my husband and I packed up all our belongings and moved from northwestern Pennsylvania to North Carolina. Our little dog Tootsie was getting a little confused. She watched us pack up one thing after another and carry it out of the house, her house, the only house she had ever really known. I picked her up and comforted her by saying, “Oh, my little girl, I know you don’t understand what’s going on, and I can’t explain it to you, but all you need to know is that I love you and you will always be with me.” When I said that I “heard” that sweet familiar still small voice of my heavenly Father whisper in my heart, “and that goes for you, too…and for My people who are struggling and confused.”

I knew that day my little doggie girl needed my reassurance to help her keep trusting me and not get anxious. If I feel that way about my dog, don’t you know your heavenly Father feels so much love and compassion for you, His beloved son or daughter! So when you don’t understand just stay close to Him, like Tootsie did with me, and let Him carry you through. Let His love comfort you today!

 © Conny Hubbard 2014

Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Once By Beth Auman

fp061805-02We are mortals – we live one life and die one death – then it’s eternal joy in heaven or eternal misery in hell. We ask the Lord for forgiveness of our sins and we die daily to our flesh that we will not practice sin.. (That is knowingly committing sin – over and over, knowing that it is sinful and doing it anyway) We learn our lessons from past sins and walk the journey of life learning from our mistakes – asking for and receiving forgiveness for our sins along the way- this is a daily journey – to our eternal destination. (That is if we are believers in Jesus Christ and have made Him Lord of our lives  . Those who have not will live eternally – but not in heaven.)

Hebrews 9:27-28 The Voice (VOICE) 27 Just as mortals are appointed to die once and then to experience a judgment, 28 so the Anointed One, our Liberating King, was offered once in death to bear the sins of many and will appear a second time, not to deal again with sin, but to rescue those who eagerly await His return.

What are you doing with your life?  Have you given thought to this passage? One Life – to fulfill the destiny for which God Himself created you. Are you fulfilling your destiny or are you running away from it and serving the evil sinful devil?

God is the God of life not the God of recycling – He is creative – He creates – He has all creative power and He creates mortals to live one life and die one death. Jesus came once and offered His life so that our sins can be forgiven. He will come again to rescue those who eagerly await His return. We are only promised today.  I Love the Voice Translation of the Bible –

 

James 4:13-17 The Voice (VOICE) 13 Listen carefully, those of you who make your plans and say, “We are traveling to this city in the next few days. We’ll stay there for one year while our business explodes and revenue is up.” 14 The reality is you have no idea where your life will take you tomorrow. You are like a mist that appears one moment and then vanishes another. 15 It would be best to say, “If it is the Lord’s will and we live long enough, we hope to do this project or pursue that dream.” 16 But your current speech indicates an arrogance that does not acknowledge the One who controls the universe, and this kind of big talking is the epitome of evil. 17 So if you know the right way to live and ignore it, it is sin – plain and simple.

He is the God of second chances during life – Jesus is always there to offer forgiveness for wrong  mindsets, for sin –  He gives us one life to live and one death to die.

Holy Spirit of Truth – Please come and impart truth to this generation  – I pray for the Salvation of this generation of people – that they will know You – The Truth and that You will make them free, Jesus Christ You alone are the Way, Truth and Life, No man comes to the Father except by You.  John 14:6The Voice (VOICE) Jesus: I am the path, the truth, and the energy of life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 

I personally, eagerly await His return. Do you? The choice is always yours..Life – Death – Heaven – Hell.  but rest assured you only have Once to Life and Once to Die.

Ephesians 4:21-24 The Voice (VOICE) 21 If you have heard Jesus and have been taught by Him according to the truth that is in Him, 22 then you know to take off your former way of life, your crumpled old self—that dark blot of a soul corrupted by deceitful desire and lust  23 to take a fresh breath and to let God renew your attitude and spirit. 24 Then you are ready to put on your new self, modeled after the very likeness of God: truthful, righteous, and holy.

Romans 12:2 The Voice (VOICE) Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.

Abba Father – I pray in Jesus name – I take my seat in Christ Jesus – take the authority given to me by the Power given to Jesus and I apply His blood over each person – I pray individually and corporately that each one will come to know You Jesus and crown You Lord of their life and that we will all corporately be the Body of Christ that Jesus is coming for – walking in power and authority  – living the one life that You have chosen us for and fulfilling our destiny in You.. Amen

The Jaws of Life By Conny H.

fp072305-19Recently I was driving somewhere in my car. A friend of mine came to mind and I started praying for her. I didn’t know any details just that she was going through a tough time. As I prayed for her, still struggling to put into words what I sensed in my spirit, I heard myself praying and declaring this, “Lord, I cut her out of that place with the Jaws of life!” The Jaws of Life are a set of hydraulic power tools used to pry open vehicles involved in an accident when a victim is trapped inside. With this picture the Holy Spirit showed me in a split second that my mouth became the Jaws of life as I used the words He gave me to speak freedom over her and bring her out of the spiritual prison she was in.

Faith rose up in my heart as I continued to boldly pray for her, using my Jaws of life! I felt power released and I knew God was working on her behalf.

I remembered how I had to do this for myself when I was a new Christian and had come out of much darkness. I would take my Bible and just by faith, not because I felt like it, speak His Word over myself, renewing my mind to the truth of who I was and what belonged to me as a child of the living God. As I did this faithfully His Word became the Jaws of life for me, cutting away stubborn obstacles and carving through seemingly impossible situations to bring me into freedom and liberty.

 Maybe you face a tough situation yourself or a loved one is trapped in a spiritual prison. You have an amazing set of power tools from God. His Word, released in your mouth, can become the Jaws of life for someone today! 

 Isaiah 55:11 (ESV)  so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty,?but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

 Mark 11:23 (ESV) Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
