Joshua 1:3-7

Every place upon which the sole of your foot shall tread, that have I given to you, as I promised Moses.4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon to the great river Euphrates--all the land of the Hittites [Canaan]--and to the Great [Mediterranean] Sea on the west shall be your territory.5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.6 Be strong (confident) and of good courage, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you. Turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go!

Developing My AWE-GOD With An Attitude Of Gratitude!

2012 AWE-GOD Gratefulness! Today I want to express my gratefulness to YOU AWE-FATHER God for the strength and hope YOU give as I wait on You with full confidence that Your purposes in play right now in my life will eventually "feel" good and be great for me… Kingdom Great! Thank you for the "growing" experiences in my life Lord God and for the way You undergird me with Your might as I "grow through" with YOU! AWE-FATHER GOD! I am grateful for Your "Growth Provisions"!

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.

Streams In The Desert By L.B. Cowman Page:87

Every place upon which the sole of your foot shall tread, that have I given to you, as I promised Moses.

2 Peter 1:3-9

For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). 4 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. 5 For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence), 6 And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety), 7 And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love.8 For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).9 For whoever lacks these qualities is blind, [spiritually] shortsighted, seeing only what is near to him, and has become oblivious [to the fact] that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Excerpts From The Book:

Besides the literal ground still unoccupied for Christ, there is before us the unclaimed and unwalked territory of God's promises.

…. As I Promised….

The land of God's promises is open before us, and it is His Will for us to possess it. We must measure off the territory with the feet of obedient faith and faithful obedience, thereby claiming and appropriating it as our own.

How many of us have ever taken possession of the promises of God in the name of Christ? The land of His promises is a magnificent territory for faith to claim by marching across its length and its breath, but faith has yet to do it.

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

Isaiah 61:1

THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,

Amplified Bible

Sickness Isn't Only Physical! By Joyce Meyer

The Bible teaches that Jesus came to heal our wounds, to bind up and heal our broken hearts, and to give us beauty instead of ashes and the oil of joy instead of mourning (see Isaiah 61:1-3).

Many Christians read this scripture and know that God wants to heal us from physical and spiritual sickness, but there's more to it than that. The truth is that our emotions are part of our makeup and they can become sick like any other part of us.

The world today is full of people who are suffering from emotional pain. The cause is often abuse, rejection, abandonment, betrayal, disappointment, judgment, criticism or other negative behavior by others. This emotional pain can be more devastating than physical pain because people feel that they have to hide it and pretend it isn't real.

If you have an emotional wound in your life, you need to know that Jesus wants to heal you. Don't make the mistake of thinking He is interested only in your spiritual and physical life. Take your wounds to Him. Jesus wants to heal you everywhere you hurt! Joyce Meyer

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for caring about every part of me, including my emotions. Any emotional pains and wounds that I have, I bring to You. I know that You can heal and restore me.

Okay, God, what would you have me do today? "Because a day not redeemed is a day gone forever. And because a life is nothing but a collection of todays" via David Jeremiah

Awesome! This is truly a "living legacy" one that does not just stay here, but goes on... infinitely so! I pray this for all of us!

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

Page 154 Come Away My Beloved By Frances J. Roberts

Written in thee, thou, shalt, I transposed it into my language… LOL… Paraphrased Original text into today's words.

Behold, out of gross darkness, a light shall shine forth. Yes, out of the night a cry will be heard. For I will make known My will to you, and you will go no more halting, but YE SHALL MOVE SWIFTLY AND SURELY. You may not know what I am doing as yet, but you will know hereafter, and you will be moved by My divine unction and authority. You will not be left to falter as the blind searches out his way; but you will put your hand into Mine and we will move out together. My Spirit will be clothed upon your life and testimony, and you will be empowered by My might and power. My strength is indefatigable. Yes, and I will be so to you – I will be an energizing and a quickening power within you and upon you, and you will go in the strength of your God. You will not fail; neither will you're your arm droop or your foot lag. You have no enemy to fear but fear itself. You have no weakness to contend with but such as doubt may produce. Look to Me – Yes, constantly set your eyes upon my Face, and you will be as the eagle and the deer. Rest your heart in Me. For in quietness and in returning will be your peace and your strength. Be anxious for nothing, but in all situations in prayer and in fastings, bring each emergency case to Me, for I am the Great Physician; and may are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord heals them all. Blessings and honor and praise and glory be unto God forever and ever. AMEN!

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

Lord you sent me here to this book, to this page by the prompting of Your Holy Spirit. It was perfect for me because I am struggling with my today, with the situations that I am facing that I can't see a way out of; with decisions that need to be made, that I can't see clear enough to make; with fear that arises out of daily occurrences that point to another job loss. This was perfect for me and I am grateful for this Manna given to me today by Your Holy Spirit.

When I cry to you out of my dark place, You hear me, You will shine a light and lead me. There is not one night cry that you do not hear.

You will breakthrough this night season with a "sudden" light and I will be able to see my way clearly and I will move swiftly according to Your Sovereign Will for me. There will be an end to this season of my life where I can't see ahead, I can't see Your Purpose in this dark place, but I do have Your Provision and for that I am thankful.

I love the promise in this that I can't see right now, but I will be able to see later and move later by Your divine unction and authority. I love that… God's Divine Unction-Authority Can Move Me Suddenly From Where I Am To Where I Need To Be - Positioned In His Sovereign Will!

When God leads me and I put my hand, my life completely in His, then I will have His strength, His might, His powerful promptings in my life.

Bring every sudden emergency to You and You will take care of it… bring it 1st, bring it immediately before any thoughts churn up fear, doubt… bring it to God 1st… 1st…. Pray, Fast… 1st before I get down, before I begin assuming, before anything starts a reaction in me, I need to respond to God 1st

My 1st response to every "suddenly" in my life is #prayer to God, so my reaction is never out of my human condition but His Strength-Wisdom.

My Spirit will be clothed upon your life and testimony, and you will be empowered by My might and power. Frances Roberts



1 Jesse's family is like a tree that has been cut down.

A new little tree will grow from its stump.

From its roots a Branch will grow and produce fruit.

2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on that Branch.

He will help him to be wise and understanding.

He will help him make wise plans and carry them out.

He will help him know the Lord and have respect for him.

New International Readers Version

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

The tree cut down is that Jesus? And from Jesus' resurrection grows the Bride of Christ. God will help us, He will rest His Holy Spirit upon us and He will guide us to His wisdom and understanding. The Holy Spirit will rest on us and help us make wise plans and help us carry them out. The Holy Spirit will help me know God!

I like what verse 3 implies that we don't judge by the way things look, we don't make decisions based on what people say.

Vs 4 is amazing too in how it says whatever God says is what will happen… I love that God will always do what is right! We can trust HIM no matter what we see in our circumstances now.

4 He will always do what is right when he judges those who are in need. He'll be completely fair

when he makes decisions about poor people. When he commands that people be punished, it will happen. When he orders that evil people be put to death, it will take place.

What An Amazing Picture Of God! Can You See It! Is 11:5 He will put godliness on as if it were his belt. He'll wear faithfulness around his waist.

VS 9 The oceans are full of water. In the same way, the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord.

What an amazing and true promise. Just look around, there are so many things right in front of our eyes that we can't even begin to explain, that we can be in AWE of God for.

10 At that time the man who is called the Root from Jesse's family line will be like a banner that brings nations together. They will come to him. And the place where he rules will be glorious.

This is Jesus, He is the Root of all of our family lines and we can be deeply rooted in HIS Kingdom, where He rules… Infinitely So! AWE-GOD


God was angry with the people, but after His anger subsided, He brought comfort. I love that picture of God.

VS 2 Is an amazing statement of gratitude to God after they had been disciplined by God, they realized it was the judgement, the discipline that brought them salvation, that changed them.

2 God, you are the one who saves us. We will trust in you. Then we won't be afraid. Lord, you give us strength. We sing about you. Lord, you have saved us." 5 Sing to the Lord. He has done glorious things. Let it be known all over the world. 6 People of Zion, give a loud shout!

Sing with joy! The Holy One of Israel is among you. And he is great."

They just went through the judgement of God and they were ecstatic with joy. Repentance brings great joy and you can really see it in these verses, plus I have felt it… It is not fun to be disciplined by God, but afterwards there is no feeling like it, it is amazing, you feel so clean, so unburdened, so awesome! I can relate to them in the above verses…


3 The Lord has set those soldiers apart to fight for him. He has sent for them to carry out his anger against Babylon. They will be happy when he wins the battle for them.

This is just another reference for the Military to see that God uses them as His Warriors, and they carry out His judgement.

4 Listen! I hear a noise in the mountains. It sounds like a huge crowd. Listen! I hear a loud noise among the kingdoms. It sounds like nations gathering together. The Lord who rules over all is bringing an army together for war. 5 They come from lands far away. They come from the farthest places on earth. The Lord and those weapons of his anger are coming to destroy the whole country of Babylonia.

God Uses Soldiers As Ministers Of His Justice!

11 The Lord will punish the world because it is so evil. He will punish evil people for their sins. He'll put an end to the bragging of those who are proud. He'll bring down the pride of those who don't show any pity.

The Lord Will… Stir Up… Rule… show His anger… make the heavens tremble… shake the earth out of its place… anger will blaze out… destroy sinners… punish the world for evil…. Punish evil people for their sins…

It is so hard to see God in this way, we want to think of Him as grace filled, loving, kind but He has many characteristics and we need to see the whole of HIM, respect and revere Him for WHO He is… this is a part of Him, He punishes sin, He destroys sinners… Don't presume on the Grace of God, God still hates habitual sin, He has not changed. We can change the way we view God, but that does not change God. He is the same God Who judged and destroyed the city of Babylon.

Mark Chapter 4

God has scattered the seed of His truth and life. Some of the seed was eaten by birds, some fell on rocky places where there was not much Kingdom soil--- Dig your roots deeply into Kingdom soil, not the soil of this worldly culture, Kingdom soil or your plant will burn. You will dry up if you are not rooted, deeply rooted in Kingdom soil. Don't plant your seed among thorns, because they will crowd you out and you will not be able to bear fruit. You are called to God 1st ! Be deeply rooted in God's Kingdom 1st and bear fruit and then go out and share it. If you plant your life roots of your ministry among the thorns, you will not bear fruit. Be called to God 1st, deeply rooted in His Kingdom soil

13 Then Jesus said to them, "Don't you understand this story? Then how will you understand any stories of this kind?14 The seed the farmer plants is God's message.15 What is seed scattered on a path like? The message is planted. The people hear the message. Then Satan comes. He takes away the message that was planted in them.16 And what is seed scattered on rocky places like? The people hear the message. At once they receive it with joy.17 But they have no roots. So they last only a short time. They quickly fall away from the faith when trouble or suffering comes because of the message.18 And what is seed scattered among thorns like? The people hear the message.19 But then the worries of this life come to them. Wealth comes with its false promises. The people also long for other things. All of those are the kinds of things that crowd out the message. They keep it from producing fruit.20 And what is seed scattered on good soil like? The people hear the message. They accept it. They produce a good crop 30, 60, or even 100 times more than the farmer planted."

37 A wild storm came up. Waves crashed over the boat. It was about to sink.38 Jesus was in the back, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him up. They said, "Teacher! Don't you care if we drown?"

39 He got up and ordered the wind to stop. He said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down. And it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Don't you have any faith at all yet?" 41 They were terrified. They asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!"

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

The measure of our faith is when we can remain steady in trust and belief when the sudden storms of life arise and we know without a doubt God is with us. I love the picture of Jesus sleeping through the storm. If Jesus is with us, and He always is, then no sudden storm should stir up fearful doubt. Omnipresent Reality Check! Jesus Is Here! He's Got This!

I can have a faith that grows huge in strength and stability as I pursue the Promises of God! Marching across the length and width of their miraculous potential, I speak them into soul ownership and experience the possibility of My AWE-GOD through them.

When I pursue the Promises of my AWE-GOD, I will discover for myself the Kingdom Purpose within the province of God's Promises and I will experience God's Glory as His Kingdom grows in me and through me!

God's Kingdom Purposes Are Always In Play In My Life, With His Intention Of Growing Me Up With Excellence, As A Kingdom Of God Servant Warrior!

As I step out on the Promises of God each day, and I faithfully-consistently believe God's Words spoken to and for me, I confirm the province of their Kingdom Purpose for my life legacy.

We Have A Heritage As God's Children And This Inheritance Begins At Our Salvation And Grows Through Our Forever. Infinitely So! God's Promises Are An Earthy Bridge To Our Heavenly Inheritance!

God left us here on earth with a "Heavenly Hindsight" filled with Kingdom Promise! As you drive through your unchartered life journey of "Great God Adventure" here on earth, use your rear view mirror and occasionally glance behind you, remembering the God Promises spoken on your behalf; the miraculous musings of His faithfulness towards you.

With The Heavenly Hindsight Of God's Promises, You Can Fully Face Your Purposeful Destiny Today, With Confidence, Wisdom And Complete Belief.

These awesome God-Promises, which are maintained in God-Power and applied to your situation by your huge hope in AWE-GOD, will translate from His Heavenly Hindsight, to your foresight and make a way for you today, a way of great Kingdom Purpose, as you pursue God's Sovereign Will.

The Path Of Kingdom Purpose Is Compelled By The Promises Of God, Which Constrain Us To His Sovereign Will!

Put the sole of your feet on the promises of God today and tread upon them, claiming the Province of His Kingdom Purpose, for your life legacy to shine forth in His Sovereign Will! Walking on the path of God's Promises will eventually lead you to being "All IN" with His Kingdom Purposes!

There Is No Better Way To Live Our Lives On Earth, Then As Citizens Of The Kingdom Of God, Full Of God Purpose And Sovereign Destiny!

We who are heaven bound should step out daily on God's Promises, because they will glide us into the Province of God's Purposes that are already put in play for us, by the intent of His Sovereign Will!

God's Promises help us to "grow through" our human condition to the Province of His Kingdom Purposes, positioning us in "Holy Alliance" with His transformational nature, which assures us of His Sovereign Will for our today on earth, as it has been promised by His Heavenly Hindsight! AWE-Father God!

From Kingdom Promise To Kingdom Province To Kingdom Purpose To Kingdom Glory, We Grow To Go, Fully Into His Sovereign Will! AWE-GOD!

Self Depreciating humor is laughing at yourself. Why do you laugh at yourself? It let's other people know that you know that you are not perfect. One of the finest gifts you can give everyone is the gift of humanness. Knowing who you are, accepting who you are including your shortcomings, the things you don't measure up with. A person who walks along side of you being vulnerable and open and willing to help you as you help them, you can connect so much more. Encourage: laugh at life and be sure to laugh at yourself, because someone else already is!

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

I agree that God uses humor as a way of connecting us and keeping us humble, open and vulnerable with each other! Don't you think God has a sense of humor? I do! So many times when I am growing through things I just have to smile because I think: Oh God, you do have a sense of humor! LOL!

Gilberto Mac-Knight · Top Commenter · Itatiba

Agreeing with John, there's a saying in Brazil: "Don't take yourself too seriously… Nobody does!" Of course it's a joke, but, a face too serious often acts like a closed door with a "not available" sign on it. We should never be too busy not to share a smile, a warm greeting and a PERSONAL comment to our employees; showing we know them, we acknowledge them… that we care about them! Otherwise, how to expect them to feel as part of out team?

Verse Of The

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." 1 John 4:18 NIV

Notes From Listening To 1 John 4:

Do not believe every spirit, test them, see if they are from God. Recognize God… Jesus Christ come in the flesh is from God, does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. We are from God, we have overcome because the one in us is greater than the world. We are from God, we listen to God. Spirit of Truth listens to God. Love one another, love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows love. God is love. God sent His Son, that we might live through Him, this is love. Not that we loved God, but He loved us. Sent His Son for us. Since God loves us this way, we need to love others this way. God's love is made complete in us. The Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the World. God lives in us! God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God and God in Him. In this world we are like God. There is no fear in love, perfect love drives out fear… if you fear, you are not made perfect in love. If anyone says He loves God and hates his brother, he is a liar. Whoever loves God, must also love his brother.

Be made perfect in God's love. Fear drives out perfect love. When we love God, there is no fear, His love perfects us in faith!

Exhortation- The Shepherd's Communicated Love-Wisdom!

Hi MJ! Fasting really helps me develop an AWE of God! Over the years of walking with God, I feel like I got closer to Him as I got to know HIS Names – Got To Know More About WHO He Is! Developing my AWE of God, I feel has truly put a strength in my relationship with Him. So I pray that for you as you fast, that God reveals Himself to you in a new way, a way of AWE! Here is a song to start you off in the names of God:

PS… A really good book, it is an older book but a great one I think is called: 365 Ways To Know God By Elmer L. Towns It is a daily devotional for one year on the different names of God. It is pretty cool!

Gratitude and Contentment 

"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus". 1 Thessalonians 5:18"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want". Philippians 4:12

Gratitude and contentment go together like turkey and dressing. They feed each other, and are both fostered by faith. When I remember how God has so richly blessed me, I am overwhelmed by His generosity. For example, for His salvation in His son Jesus, I am eternally grateful. His gift of grace, I am grateful for its freedom. His forgiveness, I am grateful for guilt-free living. His love, I am grateful for the ability to love and be loved.
His holiness, I am grateful His character can be trusted and is transformational. Stuff is secondary, while the blessings of faith, family, friends and fitness grow our contentment. We may not have what we want, or even deserve, but in Christ we have all that is necessary. So, be humbly grateful to God, and contentment will increase its influence.
"The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble". Proverbs 19:23
Contentment is to rest in Christ, and trust He is in control. Circumstances, good or bad, are an opportunity for Him to show Himself faithful. So, once you go to God in gratitude, you can live life in contentment knowing Christ is in control. Contentment is not passive and uninformed, but rather it is engaged and educated. It is not anxious. It replaces worry with work, pity with prayer, pride with humility, and grumbling with gratitude.
Your peace and stability is the fruit of contentment, which grows out of the ground of gratitude. Seed this soil in prayer, and you will see abundance abound. You are able to accommodate in adversity, because the Almighty has gone before you. You are able to bridle wants in prosperity, because gratitude to God and contentment in Christ governs your generosity. Thank God often, and trust Him to cultivate your contentment.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).
What are some reasons for my gratitude to God, and how can I express my contentment in Christ?
Related Readings: Job 1:21; Colossians 2:6-7; 2 Corinthians 6:4-10; Ephesians 4:20-24

A Seasoned Servant Of God Has Encouraged Me Today

Sent To Me From Christy! God, Could You Please Hurry? By: Amy Carroll

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end." Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV 1984)

Below Written By Amy Carroll

I completely lost my patience and started yelling, "Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!"

Those of us who have lived in rural areas know that tractors on the road are a fact of life. However, just because they're the norm doesn't make them any less irritating if you're in a rush! I followed a tractor down one of our narrow two-lane roads recently. I could only take the snail's pace for so long before blowing up. But all that yelling, "Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!" didn't speed up the tractor.

How often have I approached God's timing the same way? And it never hurries Him up either.

When God doesn't operate at a pace that pleases me, and I want Him to hurry, I'm reminded of Sarah, Abraham's wife. I have feeling she felt the same way. After waiting ten years for a baby that God had promised (read Genesis 12-21 for the complete story), Sarah decided to "help" God.

Surely ten years was too long for anybody to wait. So Sarah gave her maidservant Hagar to her husband, and the two of them had a child. Soon the two women were at odds. Talk about a soap opera!

Finally, fifteen years later, the child promised by God to Abraham and Sarah was born. God was not late. His timing was perfect. It was Sarah who was in a hurry and rushing things, but she found out there was a price to pay for manipulating her circumstances.

I know Sarah and I are not alone in our desire for God to hurry up. I once heard it said that we are people with gods on our wrists.

In Isaiah 55:9 God says, "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts" (NIV). God's timing is part of His ways. I may be tapping my watch, but He is never late. He may seem slow, but He is always right on time.

Has God made a promise to you that seems sluggish in coming? Has He planted a dream in your heart that has yet to come to fruition?

Don't give up hope! God is faithful, and you can rely on His perfect timing. Fix your eyes on Him and enjoy the journey to your destination. There are things to be learned along the way that will enhance the joy of a promise fulfilled.

Dear Lord, sometimes I don't understand Your timing. It's often very hard to wait, but I trust You. I want to rely on Your ways and Your timing. Help me to learn what I need to learn as I wait. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Psalm 130:5, "I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope." (NIV 1984)

2 Peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." (NIV 1984)

James 3 ~ NIV Two Kinds of Wisdom

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. 17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

I like this scripture because it speaks to me about the Truth of God and two ways to share His Wisdom with others. One way to share God's wisdom is by living it out in my life and the second one is by speaking it with peace. My motive for sharing wisdom is crucial to the peace that is imparted. Am I sharing God's Word out of compassion for those who are lost, deceived and hurting that they might have the only solution, Jesus Christ, His Spirit and Truth? What is my motive for sharing God's truth? Is it out of God's heart of passion for someone or is it about me being religiously right? Selfish wisdom is "me" centered in motives all pointing to me. Heavenly wisdom is God centered in Kingdom Purpose-God passion that points to Jesus!

Response By Laurie Swallow

YES! What is the source? Enough with the symptoms, those tend to remain very much the same; different players, same situations. What is the lesson? I've found in my lifetime that I tended to repeat things until I had the "ah-ha" moment I was supposed to.

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

So true Laurie, and then your "ah-ha" moment turns into "heavenly hindsight" that you can share with others so they can have an "ah-ha" moment too!

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

Psalm 46:11

The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

When we struggle with insecurity, only one thing will set us free, and that is God's truth. The truth is that we don't need to struggle to get from man what God freely gives us: love, acceptance, approval, security, worth and value. Joyce Meyer

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] Amplified Bible

Peaceful on Purpose By Joyce Meyer

When Jesus left this earth, He said that He was leaving His peace with us. Now the decision we have to make is, are we going to choose to live in the peace He has given us?

Of course, the devil works overtime to try to get you upset. Why? Because he knows that if you don't remain peaceful, you can't hear from God.

If you watch your life, you'll be amazed at how many times a week Satan launches an attack against you for the sole purpose of stealing your peace. When I finally saw that, God said to me in my spirit, "Joyce, if the devil wants your peace that badly, then there must be something pretty powerful about being peaceful."

It's true! So now when the devil tries to steal my peace, I enjoy holding on to it, knowing that I'm getting the better of him. That doesn't mean I don't feel upset, but I can do something positive about it, I can control myself and be peaceful on purpose.

Being peaceful on purpose is something we have to do for ourselves. Will you choose God's peace?

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for providing me with Your peace. When the devil tries to steal my peace, reveal his plans to me. I won't let him take my peace. Instead, I'll remain rooted in You.

If God had wanted all of us to be alike, He would not have given each of us a different set of fingerprints. I believe that fact alone proves we are created equal but different. We all have different gifts and talents, different likes and dislikes, different goals in life and different motivations. A loving person respects and encourages the differences in others. Joyce Meyer

Romans 12:16

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty (snobbish, high-minded, exclusive), but readily adjust yourself to [people, things] and give yourselves to humble tasks. Never overestimate yourself or be wise in your own conceits. (Amplified Bible)

Colossians 3:23

Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, (Amplified Bible)

I love this scripture; it is a constant reminder to me that I need to be called to God 1st! Let it be so in me Lord Jesus! My 1st call is to you, to YOUR Kingdom purposes at play all around me for the intent of Your Kingdom glory!

Jeremiah 33:3 Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

Dear Bob and Kim

Just a short confession this morning.  One that I think, if you were to be honest with yourself, you may need to confess to also.  Once again, I have allowed my decisions to be ruled by what I see around me and neglected to entrust it to God. It is a habit of  many of God's people to limit God in our thoughts and prayers. We see a situation, examine our own ability to act, and choose to trust our own abilities or the abilities of another person.  Let's make a pledge this morning to remind ourselves daily to walk by faith and not by sight.  God help our unbelief. Pastor Elliott

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J

Oh My Gosh, I Am So There With You! I realized something though when I thought about this and that is I have been given the ability to make the right choice the 1st time because in between my moment to my next choice is where the Holy Spirit is. God is with me from moment to choice. In the center of every moment is the solution that I need for my next choice. If I pursue the goal to keep God 1st, to make my 1st calling, a calling to God 1st, then I step out from my current moment into Holy Ground, where the Holy Spirit reigns with God wisdom that sets me in the perfect flow of God's Kingdom purpose at play, and my next step is a glory glide into the perfect flow of God's Sovereign Will for me as I choose to follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit. I realize that if God is always being then, the Holy Spirit is always prompting me from every moment to every choice, I can make the right choice the 1st time. How cool is that?!!! There in the center of my every moment to my next choice is Jesus! AWE-GOD! I just have to slow down my impulsive gait so I don't step out in my human condition, but I step out into the Kingdom purposes already put in play by the Holy Spirit at the center of my life, in between every moment is my place of refuge where I align myself in holy alignment with God's Way, Truth and Life and make my right choice my next step. Am I over thinking this… probably yes… but Oh it sounds like a plan! LOL!! Have a great day!

PS... here is a cool song to go with that... We also need to pray every morning for God to speak to us throughout our day, to reveal Himself, His Way, His Truth, This Life

Speak To Us Lord! From Every Moment Into Every Choice! Let Us Step Out In Your Word Of Life!

Psalm 31:14-16

Developing My AWE-GOD With An Attitude Of Gratitude!

2012 AWE-GOD Gratefulness! Today I want to express my gratefulness to my Father God for His healing touch on our bodies. We get sick and we recover, it is not natural, it is supernaturally built into our DNA! God was, is and always will be our healer! AWE-FATHER GOD! I am grateful!

2012! Great awe-God followship Adventure!

These thoughts bombard my mind at times and they always seem to come in questions! Why is this season of life so hard for me? I can't figure out what God is up too? What is God doing? Why can't I find the God purpose in this season of my life? I can't do this!
Why does this season of life have to be so hard? Is God punishing me? I have learned not to bog my mind up by giving thought to these questions because they just evoke feelings in me that tempt me to chase them and when I do, they just weigh me down! Silence is good and truth is better! So I do both! I silence the questions with Truth! Truth: God is with me. God is for me. God's purposes are at work in the unseen for my Good. I have a great future and hope! AWE-GOD!

Ephesians 6:12  For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

There are many things in the world that threaten us. But our biggest enemy, fear, is not "out there." Joyce Meyer Eph 6:2

Thankfully, our unseen God is more than capable of dealing with our unseen enemy. When we come to a deep understanding of God's unconditional love for us, we realize He will always take care of everything that concerns us.

You don't have to be afraid of your unseen enemy. Trust in God, the only One who can defeat the spiritual forces of darkness.

Prayer Starter: Lord, don't let me forget who my real enemy is, and don't let me forget that You are all-powerful. I know I can't handle everything the enemy throws my way, but You can. Joyce Meyer

More and more I am reminded that I have a powerful Father God, Who is for me from every moment to miraculous making!

Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity], (Amplified Bible)

As a young adult trying to live for Christ and follow the Christian lifestyle, I believed that my future would always be marred by my past. I thought, "How can anyone who has the kind of past I do ever be really all right? It's impossible!" I couldn't make any progress until I realized that God wanted to release me from the prison of my past. I had to believe that neither my past nor my present determined my future, unless I let it. I had to let God miraculously set me free. Joyce Meyer
