Constant Conversation W/GOD Jan 28-29


Week Of January 29th

Sunday, January 29th

2012! Great awe-God followship Adventure!

This week I dedicate to YOU, Jesus. I want to listen to YOU; I expect to hear YOUR Voice with clarity as I fast from all media. I want to change into less of me and more of YOU. I want to let go of all things me and cling to all things YOU. I want to uproot more of the things that cling to me here and transplant my roots into YOUR Kingdom. Jesus… let it be so. Speak to my heart Lord Jesus, change me and help me to dig my roots deeper in YOUR Kingdom and learn how to make waiting on YOU as important to me as knowing and doing my mission in this life. Take away my restlessness and focus me completely on YOU and for Your Kingdom! Kimberlymac

Matthew 11:28-30

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." (MSG Bible)

All I do should be based on a perfect oneness with God, not on self willed determination to be Godly Oswald Chambers.

Impossible! I can't do it, but God can! God's purposes are in play with an endgame conceived with premeditated possibility! Kimberlymac

Holy Spirit Inspired…. He speaks, I listen and obey… Thank you for teaching Me!

Galatians 1:12 (NLT) I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.

You Need To Step Up In This Area:

  • A significant key to glorifying God is controlling our tongue. Psalm 50:23
  • Being ALL In, Is Letting ME Be In Every Situation Of Your Life.
  • Your Faith needs to allow an alignment for the play of God's purposes, by believing His endgame is good!
  • You need to get a new perspective on waiting! Waiting well and how you wait and what I teach you as you wait, is just as important as the mission you are waiting to be set apart for!

Give yourself to God. Give Him everything you are, everything you hope to be, all your dreams, visions, hopes and desires. Make everything His, and He will demonstrate His power through your life. Joyce Meyer

God, today I give You my all: my hands, my mouth, my mind, my body, my money and my time. Everything I have is Yours. I want to do Your will today. Joyce Meyer

Everything I am:

Your Daughter, Lord God! Wife, Mom, Grammy, Aunt, Cousin, Sister, Friend, Prayer Mentor, Exhorter….

The one that hurts me the most is Sister, because I am so estranged from my sisters and brothers right now….since my father died, these relationships are strained and we don't have a family anymore.

I can't move on until the things in my past are reconciled, until I do everything I can do to make peace. I tried to make peace in the family after dad died, but it did not work because of two key words: "I Tried"! Our family is so fragmented. Where do I begin Lord? "Humility"……………

"There is no vacancy in the Trinity – Don't play the Holy Spirit!" Pastor Bruce Frank

Romans 12:3

I'm speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it's important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

Speaking out of deep gratitude – A lot of times when I am "growing" through the valley's of life, I am not speaking out of deep gratitude, I am speaking out of discontentment. I know this needs to change. How I tromp through the valley's on my way to the mountain top needs to be with positive belief that God's endgame in my current life season is for my good!

Romans 12:3

For by the grace (unmerited favor of God) given to me I warn everyone among you not to estimate and think of himself more highly than he ought [not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance], but to rate his ability with sober judgment, each according to the degree of faith apportioned by God to him.

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

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

This is a stumbling block for me…. Exaggerated opinion of my own importance. God does not need me. I need God! I need to learn not to think more highly of myself than I should and then I might be more forbearing with others who disappoint me.

Philippians 2:3-5 He Took on the Status of a Slave

If you've gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.

5-8 Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn't think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn't claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.

The Message (MSG) Copyright © 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

So many times I get off course and instead of pursuing God's purpose, I am pursuing my human advantage, my way, wanting my way, wanting others to do things my way, not yielding to the Holy Spirit… It is the human condition to claim special privileges for ourselves – pushing our rights – what we believe we are owed from someone else. There is no selfless life when our personal rights are the focused on gaining advantage for us. Our 1st call is to Jesus and His Kingdom.

I get off course when instead of pursuing God's purpose, I pursue my human advantage that does not yield to the Holy Spirit! Kimberlymac

Romans 15 Pleasing Others, Not Ourselves

1 Now we who are strong have an obligation to bear the weaknesses of those without strength, and not to please ourselves.

Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man came not to have service rendered to Him, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for ([a]instead of) many.

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

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

How many times do I look for others to serve me? I come to something to receive, instead of coming with the motive of giving? My life motive should be to give 1st before I receive! I really see this in online ministry, that so many come to receive instead of coming to give. Yet Jesus told us we should always come into community with something to give: A Psalm, An Encouragement… something to give!

Philippians 3:8

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ

New Living Translation (NLT) Holy Bible. New Living Translation copyright© 1996, 2004, 2007 by Tyndale House Foundation.

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

I really love this scripture because it shows the difference between putting a "human value" on something and putting an "infinite value" on something. Knowing Jesus has Infinite value. Knowing a computer program has "human value"! Giving my life to the things that have "Infinite Value" or the things that have "human value" should be my life-passion. When I don't want to give up the things that have "human value" so I can receive more "infinite value" in my life, then my roots dug deep in earthly things. My roots need to be dug deeply in Kingdom soil and I should be planting seeds in my life that will bloom in "infinite value"! Right now I am leaning way far into things of "human value" and making choices based on preserving my "human value"! I need to lean into a Sovereign Sway and be more conscious of my moments being redeemed in the choices that render "infinite value"!

"When I don't give up things of "human value", so I can receive more "infinite value" in my life, something is out of God-Alignment." Kimberlymac

I am fully funded by God, provided for audaciously to fulfill what He has called me to do and that is to be found in Him and believe in Him completely! Kimberlymac

1 Corinthians 13:3-7

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.

Love doesn't strut,

Doesn't have a swelled head,

Doesn't force itself on others,

Isn't always "me first,"

Doesn't fly off the handle,

Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,

Doesn't revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

So how am I doing in the above?? Failure=F! I have given up and let go of family relationships because they were just too hard! I have not cared more for others in this transition, I have been grouchy with Bob, I have made him feel badly when I have my "pouty parties" of how much I have to give up to be married to him. I have had a swelled head, thinking God really needs me in ministry and "how well" I do things for Him. I have wanted things to be different, even though I don't deserve them to be so. I have been "angry" with God, flying off the handle at HIM and the way I felt He handled this whole job situation, this whole season of my life, I have been discontent and contentious before God in many ways, downright dishonoring of my faith in my personal relationship with Him. Oh and the puts up with anything…. Wow… failure… Always looking for the best, nope… pointing out all the wrongs 1st… I hope I am keeping on going, I think the only reason I am is because God does not give up on me…. I have a lot to change to make a better God showing on the above… my heart needs to be cleansed… this season of my life, my focus has been on what I wanted, I thought I deserved better, who do I think I am??? Lord forgive me!

Philippians 2:21

For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.

New International Version (NIV) Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

I really would not like to be a part of this crowd, one of the "everyone's" he is talking about here. The focus of my interests needs to sway to the Kingdom of God, on this side of heaven I need to serve the King!

Give yourself to God. Give Him everything you are, everything you hope to be, all your dreams, visions, hopes and desires. Joyce Meyer

Lord take control of every situation in my life and show Yourself mighty!

1 Peter 3

IN LIKE manner, you married women, be submissive to your own husbands [subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them], so that even if any do not obey the Word [of God], they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives, 2 When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your [a] reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him--to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband]. 3 Let not yours be the [merely] external adorning with [elaborate] [b] interweaving and knotting of the hair, the wearing of jewelry, or changes of clothes; 4 But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For it was thus that the pious women of old who hoped in God were [accustomed] to beautify themselves and were submissive to their husbands [adapting themselves to them as themselves secondary and dependent upon them]. 6 It was thus that Sarah obeyed Abraham [following his guidance and acknowledging his headship over her by] calling him lord (master, leader, authority). And you are now her true daughters if you do right and let nothing terrify you [not giving way to hysterical fears or letting anxieties unnerve you].

Sunday Gleam Biltmore Baptist Pastor Bruce Franks

  • 1 Peter 3: 1-7
  • My husband needs to change! This is true… they do! But we need to let God do it!
  • Most wives who try to change their husbands, often has the wrong and opposite effect.
  • Misunderstanding causes us to not want any part of it. When we understand what God is trying to say, we see it differently.
  • In the same way…. Context about Jesus the way He submitted Himself to the Father.
  • 3 Your adornment must not be merely external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; 4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.
  • 5 For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; 6 just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.
  • Merely External… but let it be the hidden person of the heart.
  • Strong willed lady… Sarah obeyed Abraham and did what was right
  • It doesn't work when you try to change your husband.
  • Speeches and nagging do not work. Christian lady being married to an unmarried man.
  • Do not be yoked together with an unbeliever.
  • When it comes to changing your husband, when you preach at him, it does not work, it has the exact opposite effect. How will he change? He doesn't forget when you tell him, he is resisting it. The way to change him is not by preaching at him.
  • Proverbs 9:13 A woman of folly is boisterous, she is naïve because she knows nothing.
  • Prov 14:1 The wise woman builds her house, the foolish tears it down with her own hands.
  • Prov 21:9 It is better to live in the corner of a roof than a house with a contentious woman.
  • Or live in the desert land!
  • "There is no vacancy in the Trinity – Don't play the Holy Spirit!"
  • There is something in a sinful nature of a man that makes it his tendency to neglect his wife. Love your wife like Christ loved the church… He tells them that because in the sinful heart of a man, he neglects his wife. The tendency of a woman is to nag her husband, go in the same place over and over again. What you think will change him has the opposite effect.
  • We NEVER….. You ALWAYS…. Are you EVER going to… Comparing him to everyone else… well so and so does this for his wife…
  • You are cutting at a man's ego, he gets respect from everyone else in his life but you.
  • VS 3-4 Your adornment must be more than external, the outward beauty will fade..
  • The priority has to be on the inside! Deal with the inside. The outside will not last.
  • What you catch him with, you need to keep him with.
  • There is nothing godly about not taking care of the outside. The contrast of the outside to the inside is what he is saying.
  • People are so beautiful on the inside it exudes to the outside.
  • The imperishable… free from decay, free from theft…
  • A quiet spirit… not talking about the personality, but a woman under control, under the authority of Jesus 1st. Some women stir things up and others still the storm.
  • There is nothing wrong with you dressing nice, but be modest in an attractive fashion. The line is crossed when you dress in such a way to try to get the guys to check out your body.
  • Do you want to see some change in your husband. VS 5-6
  • Yield as your husband leads. Being submissive to their own husbands…. Jesus submitted Himself to the Father's Plan…
  • The middle voice. You voluntarily place yourself in that situation. You both are equals, one equal places herself under another equal so God will be glorified
  • Men and woman are equal in worth, ability, dignity, privilege. Equality does not equal sameness. Woman are 100 percent better at being a lady….
  • There are distinguishing roles and characteristics that make us awesome at what we do.
  • Equality does not equal sameness
  • Role responsibility…. Husbands love your wife as God loved the church. Servant Leaders… you lead by serving. You submit to Christ 1st. Our submission is to Jesus 1st and then the authorities God has put over us.
  • If someone does not yield in a circle, there will be a collision. Both can't lead, one has to yield.
  • Leadership has responsibilities more than privileges. Sacrificial, servant leader husband will not demand his own way.
  • When your husband tries, be their cheerleader not their critic. I believe in You, I thank God for you.
  • Teachable spirit, hungry, going after God, this man will be easier to yield too.
  • Verbally encourage VS 6… Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him her Lord. In the culture this was a sign of respect. Verbally praising Abraham, this is when the miracle came in her life. She did her part. She encouraged and respected Abraham.
  • A man has two main mirrors in his life that he looks into to find his self esteem. 99 percent of men have mirror of Work 1st 2nd Wife.
  • Your husband needs someone who believes in him. I am so proud of you, what God is doing in you and through you… this is oxygen to the soul. Verbally encouraging your husband.
  • Is there something you can do to make your husband know you are proud of him.
  • Do what is right without being frightened by fear. Is this guaranteeing if you do this your husband will change, it promises you that you are helping God's agenda, not hindering it. Am I helping or am I hindering God? You can't change your husband.
  • Ruth Graham Bell: It is my job to love Billy, it is God's job to make him good.
  • It is our job to lead to the attempted leadership of our husband, it is God's job to make him good.
  • Yield your heart to Christ 1st, be deeply in love with Jesus 1st!
  • Turn your eyes upon Jesus, if your eyes are on Jesus, He can do a miracle in your marriage.


  • Chasing The Giants Part 4
  • Joshua 10:7- Joshua said: Oh Sun stand still over Gideon… God put "pause over the universe"
  • Don't let anything keep you back from everything God has for you to walk in. Todd Mullins
  • Fear of the future paralyses you from stepping out into the new thing God has for you.
  • No matter how big your giant may be, Your God is bigger.
  • God is the ruler over every circumstance we face. He is the supreme authority in every situation.
  • Joshua 10:7-14 So Joshua went up from Gilgal, he and all the warriors with him and all the mighty men of valor.8 And the Lord said to Joshua, Do not fear them, for I have given them into your hand; there shall not a man of them stand before you.9 So Joshua came upon them suddenly, having gone up from Gilgal all night.10 And the Lord caused [the enemies] to panic before Israel, who slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon and chased them along the way that goes up to Beth-horon and smote them as far as Azekah and Makkedah.11 As they fled before Israel, while they were descending [the pass] to Beth-horon, the Lord cast great stones from the heavens on them as far as Azekah, killing them. More died because of the hailstones than the Israelites slew with the sword.12 Then Joshua spoke to the Lord on the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, be silent and stand still at Gibeon, and you, moon, in the Valley of Ajalon!13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation took vengeance upon their enemies. Is not this written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of the heavens and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.14 There was no day like it before or since, when the Lord heeded the voice of a man. For the Lord fought for Israel.
  • This is scientifically impossible! But we have to believe that the God Who created the Sun and Moon can hold them and do with them whatever He wants.
  • Promises- We must know it, read it and study it because God's Word is life-giving to us. The Word of God is vital to defeating the Giants that stand in our pathway!
  • If we fall out of the habit of spending time in God's Word, we fall off the plan, purpose and path God has for us and we drift away into danger…
  • VS8 God said: I am with you, I have taken care of this- I've got This
  • When we hear the Word of God it initiates faith in us!
  • Romans 10:0 Consequently faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard by the Word of Christ.
  • What we hear in the Word of God, determines what we do.
  • Are you hearing the Word of God? It is the 1st step for walking into victory. Pastor Todd Mullins
  • Pray With Audacious Faith! Eph. 3:12 #Prayer our 1st Option!
  • God wants to move in our lives in such a way that His glory is seen with clarity!
  • Joshua 1:8

Five Audacious Faith Confessions:

1. I have no insecurity because I see myself the way God sees me.

2. I have no fear or anxiety; my God is with me and I trust in Him with all my heart.

3. I have the wisdom of the Lord concerning every decision I make

4. I am fully resourced to do everything God has called me to do.

5. I act in audacious faith to change the world in my generation.

  • Speaking The Word Of God Activates Faith!
  • ACT in boldness! Hearing the Word initiates faith, speaking the Word activates it and doing the Word demonstrates my faith. James 1:22
  • Asking and Acting go hand in hand.
  • My responsibility is to make things right for what I have done wrong, not focusing at all on the other person, but for what I have done wrong
  • The audacity to ask God and the persistence to pursue
  • What happens when God does not answer the prayer the way you wanted Him too. What do you do when the sun Goes Down on your dream.
  • I can wake up each day feeling different, but the Word of God is the one consistent for me. Pastor Rex
  • God always answers our prayer: No, not yet, not now, Yes
  • Audacious faith does not mean my prayers work the way I want them to, but I believe He is at work in His Way taking all things and working them for His Glory.
  • 2 Cor 4 We never give up… troubles get us ready for an eternal glory.. things that are seen don't last forever… things that are not seen are eternal… that is why we keep our minds on things that are not seen.
  • The Sun Goes Down on things in our lives so that God can be the source of Light in your life.
  • Joshua marched all night before the victory came, sometimes it feels like we are doing the same.
  • Sun Stand Still Prayer: Bridegroom's Voice – Ministry Outreach- Out Of Debt

Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life - a Daily Devotional

2 Timothy 2:21

So whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean, who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences] will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honorable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work. (Amplified Bible)

Today, when you become a set apart vessel, God will do incredible things through your life. Joyce Meyer

The Bible refers to us as earthen, or frail, human vessels (see 2 Cor. 4:7). Like stoneware formed on the potter's wheel, we are made of clay (see Is. 64:8). God formed Adam out of "the dust of the ground," according to Genesis 2:7, and Psalm 103:14 says, "He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust" (AMP).
Though we are weak and imperfect, when we fill our vessels (ourselves) with the Word of God, we become containers of His blessing, ready to be poured out for His use. All of us are valuable to the Lord, God can use even cracked pots! Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life - a Daily Devotional

Psalm 34:13 13  Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.

Psalm 34: 13 Then don't say cruel things and don't tell lies. (CEV)

Controlling Your Tongue By Joyce Meyer

A significant key to glorifying God is controlling our tongue. Psalm 50:23 says, "He who brings an offering of praise and thanksgiving honors and glorifies Me...."

What would happen if you gave your mouth to God each day so that only godly words came from your lips? And I'm not just talking about praising and thanking God in your quiet time, or speaking positive, encouraging words over yourself. The health of your relationships depends on how you speak to, over and about others.


Psalm 34:13 says, "Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit." Do you lie to others? Do you insult them or speak ill of them? Or do you speak encouraging, life-giving words that bring joy to everyone you meet?

Dedicate your mouth to God and use it only for what pleases Him, praise and worship, edification and exhortation, and giving thanks. Place your lips on the altar each morning. Give your mouth to God through praying His Word: "O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise" (Psalm 51:15).

Prayer Starter: Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will praise and thank You. Help me use my words to bring joy and life to those around me and to praise and glorify You.

Developing My AWE-GOD With An Attitude Of Gratitude!

Father God, I am so grateful today for the way YOU make a way for me when there is no way. Today, I asked and today, You led. I am grateful YOU are my Way-Maker. You made a miraculous way for me today by YOUR Favor and direction. I am grateful for my Way-Maker!


Genesis 36,37,38

  • Interesting how Esau and Jacob had acquired so much "stuff" that it caused them not to be able to live together, they had to separate in order for their livestock to be able to live.
  • Edom was Esau's name and he had a kingdom of Edom and they had a king before the nation of Isreal had a king.
  • Israel showed Joseph partiality and that caused sibling rivalry. Joseph in the foolishness of his youth told his brothers a dream that said they were going to bow down to him and this added to their hatred of him. He told his father the dream and his father questioned it, but did not disavow it, he pondered it in his heart.
  • Then comes the generational sin into play again when his brothers plot to kill him, yet the provincial will of God comes into play by the Kingdom purposes of God trumping the plan of man.
  • God used Rueben to stop their plan, he also had a plan to get Joseph out of harms way but His plan was not God's plan either. God had a plan and this plan was the outcome for Joseph.
  • Interesting how they sold Joseph for silver – and how Jesus was sold out- betrayed for silver
  • Judah was used by God to supersede Rueben's plan. The brothers came up with a plan and they deceived their father – also generational sin in play.
  • Interesting how the traders sold Joseph to Potiphar, one of Pharoah's officials. God placed Joseph in a place where he would be positioned right where He had planned for Joseph to be.
  • Judah took a wife and his oldest son was evil in God's eyes, so the Lord put him to death. Very interesting…
  • Onan tried to make his own will happen, because he did not want to obey his father, so God put him to death.
  • Judah's life spiraled in sin after he came up with the plan to get rid of Joseph, sin beset him and his family. Judah had sex with what he thought was a prostitute, but it was his daughter in law, who he had not kept his promise to give his youngest son too. She tricked him. Every sin Judah committed came back on him as a consequence.

Romans 12

  • When we offer our bodies as a holy sacrifice, that pleases God, when we offer our bodies to God, we are worshiping him.
  • Don't live the way the world lives. Let your thinking be completely changed. Then you will know what God wants for you. You will agree with God, knowing what He wants is right, knowing that His plan is perfect and good for you.
  • Don't think of yourself more highly than you should, put God 1st.
  • We are the Bride of Christ, we are one in Him, yet we also have individual Kingdom purpose designed uniquely in us.
  • We all have been gifted and differ from one another.
  • Do you have the gift of prophecy? Use it in keeping with the faith you have
  • Is it your gift to serve? Then serve!
  • Are you a teacher? Then teach!
  • Are you an exhorter? Then tell others how they should live.
  • Hate evil, hold on to what is good. Cling to God with the all ofyou.
  • Love deeply… Love on with honor.
  • Honor others more than yourself. Never let the fire in your heart go out.
  • Keep your fire alive for God… serve Him.
  • Hope in joy! Suffer patiently. Pray diligently.
  • Agree with each other without any pride in between you.
  • Don't be partial with the giving of your friendship, love unconditionally everyone God puts in your life path.

Genesis 39,40,41,42,43,44, 45

  • Joseph's master experienced the results of the favor upon him. He saw the success Joseph had and realized it was from God.
  • God gave Joseph great favor with Potiphar, making him feel pleased with Joseph. He put Joseph in charge of his house and everything he owned.
  • The master's wife tempted Joseph and he resisted, wanting to keep the trust of his master. He was more loyal to his master then he was to satisfying his flesh
  • Potiphar's wife got aggressive and Joseph had to run from the temptation. Then she lied about Joseph.
  • Potiphar's was angry and he did not believe Joseph over his wife. Even though Joseph did the right thing, he still ended up, purposely so in prison. God had a plan and it involved Joseph going to prison.
  • What looked like injustice was truly God's purposes in play, working out a good end results by way of a bad thing.
  • Even while Joseph was in prison, the Lord gave him great favor. Joseph was put in charge of the prisoners and was accountable for everything going on in the prison.
  • God gave Joseph success in everything he did in prison.
  • Even though you are waiting on God to deliver you, the waiting time is just as important as the time you are delivered.
  • The baker and wine taster were put in prison and both were disturbed about a dream they had and Joseph asked God about the dreams and God told them what they meant.
  • God wants to be a part of all of our lives, we need to ask Him for help in everything we are involved in, He is the solution.
  • Joseph asked helped the wine taster and asked him to talk to the Pharoah on his behalf, but the wine taster forgot all about Joseph once he was out. That happen a lot in human relationships where you help someone and they forget all about you after they get what they want.
  • Two years passed!!! Joseph stayed in prison and bloomed where he was planted in God's favor and success, even in prison, he rose to the top!
  • Pharoah told Joseph, when you hear a dream I was heard you can explain it. Joseph immediately gave God the credit. Saying, I can't do it, but God can! Isn't that the truth in all of our lives! We can't do it, but God can!
  • Impossible! I can't do it, but God can! His purposes are in play with an endgame conceived with premeditated possibility!
  • God gave Pharaoh the dream, then through Joseph He told of future events in order to protect what seemed like Egypt, but truly was to protect the bloodline of Jesus and everyone else in the path of that protection benefited.
  • So they decided to store up the grain during the good years to have during the lean years.
  • Pharaoh, grateful for the knowledge and seeing God's spirit upon Joseph made him next to him the highest official in the land. Going one day from the prison, to the next day to the highest official in the land, now that is how God's Favor, provision and purpose works possibility into impossibility.
  • Only God's Favor and Wisdom can work into impossibility, by way of His provisionary purpose, possibility.
  • Pharaoh gave Joseph authority, clothing and gold and then put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt. This is what God can do in perfect, purposeful timing.
  • Joseph's 1st son was named Manasseh, signifying that the good that happened through God's hand of favor and provision, far outweighed the suffering to get to the place he was in.
  • The land of Canaan had no food, so Israel sent his sons to Egypt and this was the revelation of the whole God purpose of this story. God allowed Joseph to be sent to Egypt to be there for his family when they needed to be saved from the famine. God had a plan and it was perfect in the end, even though it involved suffering in the middle.
  • We suffer through seasons of life while God's perfect purposes work towards a good endgame, a providential grand conclusion!
  • Joseph's brothers did not recognize him, but he recognized them. The dream Joseph had was fulfilled when his brothers bowed before him
  • Joseph put his brothers in prison and it was interesting to see how God let them reap a little bit of what they had sown in Joseph's life.
  • In prison, they remembered what they did to Joseph and they felt like this trouble was from God for what they had done.
  • All that time they had left Simeon there… isn't that interesting!
  • Joseph showed partiality to Benjamin which was the same thing that started all that problem, this time, it had a different outcome because of the humility of the brothers.
  • Joseph tried to trick the brothers so that he could keep his brother Benjamin with him. But they told him the Israel would die of grief.
  • Joseph revealed himself to his brothers and told them that he was not angry with what had happened, because he realized that God had sent him to Egypt to save his family from the current famine.

Romans 13,14

  • Everyone who is allowed to be in authority is put there by the purposes of God in play in our lives.
  • When you oppose authority, you oppose God's appointment of them.
  • Do what is right, then you don't have to worry about the authorities in your life.
  • God carries out His anger through authorities when you don't do what is right.
  • Give to your authorities what is due them: respect, taxes, honor… show your submission by giving them what is due
  • Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Love does not harm its neighbor. Love obeys the law.
  • Dark night of evil is how he describes the earth and he asks us to put on the armor of light. Act as we should, like people living in the light.
  • Act like you should: don't get drunk; have nothing to do with wild parties; don't take part in sexual sin or evil conduct. Don't fight with each other and don't be jealous of anyone.
  • Jesus Christ is our clothing. Don't even let you mind go in the direction of what your sinful nature wants.
  • 14… Don't judge others because you have differences of opinion. Truth matters, opinion does not!
  • Whatever you do, do it to honor the Lord 1st. Don't do things out of religiosity; be found in Christ, in relationship with Him!
  • Whatever we are "growing through" we belong to the Lord and we honor Him with our lives! We are The Bride of Christ!
  • Only in God's courtroom will judgement be made, we are not to judge others.
  • We all will have to explain for what we have done, each one of us will stand before God.
  • Don't put anything in anyone's way that will cause them to trip and fall.
  • Don't do things or eat things or drink things that will cause someone else to be upset, be considerate of others and how they feel about things.
  • Live in peace and do all you can to build each other up in peace.
  • Everything that is not based on faith and acted out of faith is sin.
