Constant Conversation W/God 1/31- 2/1

Week Of January 31st 2011 Tuesday, February 01, 2011


Make My Life A Constant Conversation With You!



Our business is to love what God would have us do. He wills our vocation as it is: let us love that, and not trifle away our time in hankering after other people's vocation.

Francis de Sales

My Thoughts About This:

Basically what You have been teaching me Holy Spirit is You are my vocation/occupation, it begins and ends in You. I have a Kingdom Trade, it is learning and being FOLLOWSHIP! My occupation/vocation has been misaligned. I need to have a Holy Alignment with You. I need to keep my heart undivided and You need to be the all of my everything. You need to be my first and constant conversation and have the last word in every discussion we have. Willessness, Humility and Dependence are the tools of my Kingdom Trade! Jesus, it is You I must learn to pursue 1st and by Your Holy Spirit, I am growing and learning how to stay in Holy Alignment with my Advocate, The Father God! He has always been for me, so much so that He sent Jesus to die for me, when I did not deserve it, then in the abundance of His Grace, My Father God left me with His Holy Spirit, so I would never walk alone, never be without Godly Wisdom, Direction or Provision. The Triune God is Whom I need to be in Holy Alliance with and this is my 1st profession, occupation, vocation in this life and out of the pursuit and development of this relationship, my heart grows-glows-goes!

Notes From Jeff Deyo On Worship

God's Presence is in relationship; discipline yourself to spend time with Him.

My feet naturally move when there is music. 1 Corinthians 9:24 In a race everyone runs, but only one gets the prize… all athletes practice strict discipline… discipline my body like an athlete training it to do what it should do… Discipline yourself to take time, leave space for God… don't be in a hurry, pick songs that will linger in your spirit. Make a song that is about God to God… make it more personal…

Worship should be intimate, you should be saying-singing to God… Engage your heart in a real way!

Love and worship is a two way relationship- God loves us Zehaniah 3:17

Every believer should have a time of worship in private!

Psalm 119:164 He praised God seven times a day… dancing by yourself humbles your flesh… worship cultivates intimacy in your life

My Thoughts

Omnipresent Reality Check! Are you worshipping God in a whole-hearted way that connects you heart-to heart and spirit-to spirit!

Music is so awesome, yet God's Presence in centered in Your relationship with Him 1st!

My Thoughts About This:

Leave space for God in your life- develop Your God-relationship- Your AWE-GOD!

To worship is to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God, to feed the mind with the truth of God, to purge the imagination by the beauty of God, Temple

Psalm 29:2 1 Chronicles 16:29 Bring an offering…

Worthship… it literally means… Greek proskeuneo

Kiss the hand of one in a token of reverence, also by kneeling or prostration to pay homage…

  1. Worship of repentance 2 Samuel 12:22-23

Genuine spiritual worship= Psalm 51

My Thoughts About This:

Going through the motions is not worship, worship is growing in relationship with God heart to heart

Oh My Gosh... God just worked amazing things... it was one of those kind of humbled to your knees moments... where He provides with such abundance, suddenly that it buckles your knees in humility.... AWE-GOD! He starts Monday!! Thanks for praying sweet friend. I miss you! If you ever get up in the NC Mountains, please come stay with me! Lv ya!

talk it up! twitter

Yesterday we had one of those AWE-GOD moments! God provided with such abundance that it buckled our knees in humble AWE!

You are His Word-Warrior... the fight is His! FOLLOWSHIP is a wise thing in the midst of a battle such as this season of time! :

Never forget that God will not stop BEING! He is, He was, He will be! You can't shut Him out. He will BE!

Relationships! Oh My Gosh…you have to Let God BE Enough- Let His timing prevail in them-God is shaping them…you are not

Praying- Encouraging Families here: #prayer

Need Money? Function in God's currency 1st= faith-love-hope-peace-trust! He will take care of the rest!

Gr8 Wisdom! RT @prophetesstli: One of the most greatest revelations I received from the Holy Spirit is to not try to figure things out.

Joshua 23:14 Not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed.

I have realized that hope and putting all your expectations in God is weapon of spiritual warfare… isn't that cool

The more interact W/hurting people who hurt people-the less I trust-rely on myself-what I can "do"-the more I "hope huge" in my God

The task before us is huge! The hope of Christ Jesus impassions us W/an incredible eternal edge!! God's hope bubbles up in the worst of places! AWE-GOD!

God's hope bubbles up in the worst of places in that special way that only His Holy Spirit can! AWE-GOD

Holiness is not to love Jesus and do whatever you want. Holiness is to love God and do what He wants. C. Peter Wagner

It is such a lie when we think we can "fix people"… only God can… I learned that our responsibility is to point them to The "FIXER"!

There are times in your life when you need the peace only God can give! Cling To God! Dig your roots deeply in His Love!

If God has given you a silence, then praise Him—He is bringing you into the mainstream of His purposes. Oswald Chambers


If God has given you a silence, then praise Him—He is bringing you into the mainstream of His purposes. The actual evidence of the answer in time is simply a matter of God's sovereignty. Oswald Chambers

My Thoughts About This:

Silence is a tool that God uses to develop our willessness and bring us to a place of heart submission to His Will, His Kingdom purposes at play in our lives

©AWE-GOD! I Pray To You, I Place My Hope In You, Jesus!!! ©

1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. 15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled. and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him.

Father be with Karin, be the strength that undergirds this move, the courage that paves the way and the provision!

Father be with Carolyn, help her to find a full time job, open Your doors for her Jesus. Touch her and Jeff, draw them to You. AWE-GOD!

#Prayer God give us peace in abundance today so our contentment level is undergirded in an unmovable trust in You! Help us to balance out our wants, by putting all our hope and expectations in Your Hands and trusting You completely with our God-Adventure today!

Father work your perfect will for Alli

Father be with Cord, restore him to perfect health, touch Linda with your strength and peace. Jesus!

#poiema Gospel Of John Study

How do the following scriptures show us how to approach God with our needs?

Psalm 66:18-19 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me; 19 But certainly God has heard me; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer

My Thoughts About This Verse:

We need to come to God in prayer, after we have confessed all of our sins, and prepared our hearts in humble-purity! Always approach God with a purity of heart in respect of His Holiness

Jeremiah 33:2-3 Thus says the Lord Who made [the earth], the Lord Who formed it to establish it--the Lord is His name:3 Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Call out to God by Name! God's names are so powerful and the different names and what they mean develop an AWE-GOD in us, a respect for God that carries out from our heart to our prayer to Him! Know God By Name!

Matthew 6:6-13 But when you pray, go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open .7 And when you pray, do not heap up phrases (multiply words, repeating the same ones over and over) as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard for their much speaking. [I Kings 18:25-29.]8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.9 Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name.10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread.12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors.13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Pray to the Father God out of the secret place of your heart. Pray from your heart, not in a religious way with a prayer that means nothing to you and is empty repetitious religiosity. God is relational! When you pray, always talk to God respectfully, with a heart of thanksgiving. Ask for your needs, not your wants. It is good to come to God with a clear conscious and a pure heart, so ask Him to purify your heart and confess your sins to Him. Whatever the day is at hand, you will need God, You will need His strength and guidance! Ask Him!!!

Philippians 4:6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.7 And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Be confident in God's ability to provide what you exactly what you need to help yourself and help others. Come to Him first with a grateful, humble heart in total AWE-Respect of Who He is. Be definite when you ask Him, yet be willess, completely submitted to what He wants for you.

Hebrews 4:15-16 For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning.16 Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Fearlessly, Confidently, Boldly come to God to find His Grace-His Strength-His Wisdom For Every Need! Stay In Constant Conversation With God!

James 4:3 3 [Or] you do ask [God for them] and yet fail to receive, because you ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is

My Thoughts About This Verse:

This comes right to the point…and your intention is? And your motive for this prayer is?

James 5:16 Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].

My Thoughts About This Verse:

We need to pray earnestly with our whole hearts in submission to God's will. When we live our lives before God and with God in the right way, making good choices, doing the things that will glorify God, He makes our prayers powerful.

1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us.15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Willess! This is the way need to approach God in prayer. Asking specifically but willing to hear what God wants too, willing to hear His heart on the matter, His way on the situation and His guidance to walk forth in. He does listen, He does hear us and He will according to His will for us… answer. Yes, No, or Maybe!

1 Timothy 2:8 I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands

My Thoughts About This Verse:

We need to clear our minds-souls-spirits of everything but Christ, stay focused on Him and be Christlike in our heart attitudes and then we can truly lift up holy hands to Him.

John 2:1-12

ON THE third day there was a wedding at Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited with His disciples to the wedding.3 And when the wine was all gone, the mother of Jesus said to Him, They have no more wine!4 Jesus said to her, [Dear] woman, what is that to you and to Me? [What do we have in common? Leave it to Me.] My time (hour to act) has not yet come. 5 His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it.6 Now there were six waterpots of stone standing there, as the Jewish custom of purification (ceremonial washing) demanded, holding twenty to thirty gallons apiece.7 Jesus said to them, Fill the waterpots with water. So they filled them up to the brim.8 Then He said to them, Draw some out now and take it to the manager of the feast [to the one presiding, the superintendent of the banquet]. So they took him some.9 And when the manager tasted the water just now turned into wine, not knowing where it came from--though the servants who had drawn the water knew--he called the bridegroom10 And said to him, Everyone else serves his best wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then he serves that which is not so good; but you have kept back the good wine until now!11 This, the first of His signs (miracles, wonderworks), Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory [by it He displayed His greatness and His power openly], and His disciples believed in Him [adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Him]. 12 After that He went down to Capernaum with His mother and brothers and disciples, and they stayed there only a few days.

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Mary had a confident reliance on Jesus. She completely believed that He could handle the situation. She said: Whatever He says to you do it. She knew that if you obeyed God right down to the whatever, that He could fix the situation at hand in the perfect way. Willessness is a good thing when approaching God, knowing that He is the supreme authority on any subject, being a teachable spirit that looks to God for Wisdom and the exactly how to carry forth that wisdom.

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Jesus used what was on hand to produce the miracle in their lives. I have so much Jesus can use to produce miracles. Help me Holy Spirit to be willing to be used in whatever, however and whenever way God asks. Help me not to hold onto anything that I consider mine, but be willing to give to God whatever He needs to produce the miracle of His life in me and others.

What did Jesus do to fulfill the New Wine of the Gospel

Joel 2:19 Yes, the Lord answered and said to His people, Behold, I am sending you grain and juice [of the grape] and oil, and you shall be satisfied with them; and I will no more make you a reproach among the [heathen] nations

Amplified Bible Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

My Thoughts About This Verse:

Jesus satisfied The Father God for our sins with a final sacrificial offering. Jesus became the New Wine, His blood covered our sins.

John 2:13-15 Now the Passover of the Jews was approaching, so Jesus went up to Jerusalem.14 There He found in the temple [enclosure] those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting there [also at their stands].15 And having made a lash (a whip) of cords, He drove them all out of the temple [enclosure]--both the sheep and the oxen--spilling and scattering the brokers' money and upsetting and tossing around their trays (their stands).16 Then to those who sold the doves He said, Take these things away (out of here)! Make not My Father's house a house of merchandise (a marketplace, a sales shop)! 17 And His disciples remembered that it is written [in the Holy Scriptures], Zeal (the fervor of love) for Your house will eat Me up. [I will be consumed with jealousy for the honor of Your house.] 18 Then the Jews retorted, What sign can You show us, seeing You do these things? [What sign, miracle, token, indication can You give us as evidence that You have authority and are commissioned to act in this way?]19 Jesus answered them, Destroy (undo) this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.20 Then the Jews replied, It took forty-six years to build this temple (sanctuary), and will You raise it up in three days?21 But He had spoken of the temple which was His body.22 When therefore He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this. And so they believed and trusted and relied on the Scripture and the word (message) Jesus had spoken. 23 But when He was in Jerusalem during the Passover Feast, many believed in His name [identified themselves with His party] after seeing His signs (wonders, miracles) which He was doing.24 But Jesus [for His part] did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all [men];25 And He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning man [needed no evidence from anyone about men], for He Himself knew what was in human nature. [He could read men's hearts.] [I Sam. 16:7.]

Amplified Bible Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

My Thoughts About This Verse:

They wanted a miracle, they did not want a relationship. They wanted something from Him, they did not want Him. Faith that rests merely on miracles is deficient it craves the spectacular. Real faith craves a relationship with God.

Facts About The Passover:

Celebrated and remembered When Israelites Left Egypt

Celebrated on the full moon in March Or April

Followed right away by the Feast Of Unleavened Bread lasting 2 weeks

Pilgrims all over Palestine assembled in Jerusalem

Passover Eve the head of the household removes leaven in the house- house gets thoroughly cleaned

John called the holiday a feast of Jehovah

It was a source of tradition and it led to pride and callousness and commercialism

Malachi 3:1-3 BEHOLD, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger or Angel of the covenant, Whom you desire, behold, He shall come, says the Lord of hosts. 2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap; 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness

Amplified Bible Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

My Thoughts About This Verse:

He talks about John The Baptist preparing the way for Jesus, and then He talks about the 1st coming of Jesus and the 2nd coming of Jesus.

What does Jeremiah 17:10 say about our inner attitudes and God's Omniscience (all knowing)

I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings

My Thoughts About This Verse:

God knows our heart attitudes. Even when we act like religiousity, our hearts give us away to God. He knows everything about us from the inside out!





O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.

-- Nehemiah 1:11


God takes great delight when we pray asking for his guidance and help! This is especially true when the focus of our prayers is on building up his people and his Kingdom. Nehemiah comes as God's servant. He's not giving God a "go do" list using prayer to make God his servant. Instead, Nehemiah's heart burns with the needs of God's people. The rest of the book of Nehemiah is proof that God loves for his children to pray when the desires of their hearts are on his people and his will.


Precious and righteous Father, please use me today as your servant. Take my words and use them to bless, encourage, and comfort. Take my influence and use it to mend and inspire. Take my time and fill it up with your concerns. May the glory and honor of all I do ultimately bring glory to you. Your grace has saved me; please now use me to share that grace with others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

A Seasoned Servant Of God Has Encouraged Me Today

Pastor Elliott

Numbers 11:21-23 (HCSB)
21 But Moses replied (to the Lord), "I'm in the middle of a people with 600,000 foot soldiers, yet You say, 'I will give them meat, and they will eat for a month.'
22 If flocks and herds were slaughtered for them, would they have enough? Or if all the fish in the sea were caught for them, would they have enough?"
23 The Lord answered Moses, "is the Lord's power limited?  You will see whether or not what I have promised will happen to you."

The forty years of wandering in the wilderness is filled with lessons for all of us today. In this scene, Moses is bordering on blasphemy with what appears on the surface to be sarcasm, yet he was serious. Even after witnessing the LORD's power and majesty at the Red Sea and other miracles he still doubted that God could perform the impossible. Moses had to repeatedly exercise his faith. Each trial made his faith stronger.How many times have we sought God in impossible situations? How many times has He answered our prayers with mercy and grace? How many times have we doubted?
I have witnessed and received many miracles from God. The greatest of these was when He saved me from the penalty of sin. I have witnessed medical miracles after the doctors said there was no more they could do.  I have seen people beyond any help from a doctor brought to health by the hand of God.
In every case where God heals He does so for His purpose. In every case when someone passes from this life to eternity, it is for His purpose. In every personal tragedy or trial God intervenes for His purpose and glory. He freely gives us His favor and glory to bring His people into a closer relationship with Him; a relationship of faith and trust.
 Romans 8:28 (HCSB)
28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.

 Romans 8:28 (HCSB)

I pray that our God will increase your faith through every trial that comes your way today and until that glorious day when we see His face. Amen
  Pastor Elliott

Verse Of The

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." - Deuteronomy 6:4-5

My Thoughts About This:

You know it is funny how so much in the Kingdom Life, is switched when it comes to our culture here. In the Kingdom it is weakness where you find your strength, it is dependency where you find your identity and it is willessness where you find your best position in His Love
