Godly inspiration for daily living

What is your vision for 2019?

We are nearing the end of 2018, and what a challenging year it has been for me. Having to face various trials in almost every area of my life, but by the grace of God I am still standing. What the devil thought will take me out, I will use for God’s glory.
We must leave behind all the trials of 2018 and walk into the fullness of God’s glory and the plan He has for us in 2019. No regrets, no condemnation, and no distraction will keep us back from walking into the victory that lies ahead. In 2018 the enemy distracted us in order not to spend time with the Lord. Turn the tables on the enemy and use the lessons learned for God’s Glory.
In the distractions we have lost our ear to hear and our vision to see. The question God asked Jeremiah was “what do you see”. God called Jeremiah as a prophet to the nations, in his mother’s womb God knew him; God consecrated him – read Jeremiah 1:4-10.

Jeremiah had a lot of excuses, for example he thought he was too young, he thought he lacked training and also thought that he was not the right person, but God saw his potential and refused to allow Jeremiah to focus on his excuses, fears or failures.
When God asked Jeremiah what he saw, Jeremiah replied and said I see the branch of an almond tree that is blossoming. The interpretation that I received was very plain and simple to understand – we died like the branch or rod of the almond tree and when we accepted the calling from God we started blossoming (using the Word) and God was watching over His Word to perform it in us and through us (Jeremiah 1:11-12). Jeremiah’s eyes were tuned into the vision that God gave and God was pleased with his answer.

What vision have you lost or taken your eyes off that God has given you? Are you still hearing God?
In 2019 God wants to take His people from Glory to Glory, He wants to breathe new life into that vision and ignite it with His power and provision. Are our eyes on the doom and gloom of the world or are your eyes fixed on Jesus Christ that will not accept our excuses. New alignments will take place and a shift of the true worshippers will be evident for all to see.
Those whose vision and hearing are tuned to our Lord Jesus Christ will go from Glory to Glory; God sees our humbleness, He sees a heart that wants to please Him in purity and truth. Obedience will be better than a sacrifice; He sees those who always honour Him and obey His will. Be a Prophet in your home and allow God to show you the deeper things that pertain to your life and His will; in Jesus Name.

Amen

Have a blessed 2019

Tolerating Jezebel

But I have this [charge] against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess [claiming to be inspired], and she teaches and misleads My bond-servants so that they commit [acts of sexual] immorality and eat food sacrificed to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent [to change her inner self and her sinful way of thinking], but she has no desire to repent of her immorality and refuses to do so. 22 [p]Listen carefully, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her [I will bring] into great anguish, unless they repent of her deeds. 23 And I will kill her children (followers) with [q]pestilence [thoroughly annihilating them], and all the churches will know [without any doubt] that I am He who searches the [r]minds and hearts [the innermost thoughts, purposes. Revelation 2:20 verse 23 amplified

 

This morning I want to speak on the Jezebel spirit, I know so many teachings has gone out about this spirit, but I must be obedient to what God has laid on my heart.   We think because we have listened to various teaching about this spirit we will be prepared when it comes our way, but we are as so wrong. There are so many aspects about this spirit that has not yet been uncovered. This spirit will come after you when there is a calling upon your life. It is not gender specific.

 

People with this spirit are so afraid they are going to be exposed and just want to be your best friend. Don’t ignore when that still small voice tell you something is not right here, we received the Spirit of God that is stronger and always alert to warn those who are in tune with Him.

 

Why do we tolerate this spirit?

 Most of us tolerate it because we don’t want to offend the person, we don’t want to lose

the relationship. We don’t want to draw attention to ourselves so we let things just slide.

 

The word tolerate means – allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of

(something that one dislikes or disagrees with) without   interference.

 

When we tolerate this spirit it means that we are allowing it, we are permitting it; although we dislike it and disagree with it; but we don’t interfere by stopping the destruction. This is a destructive force of darkness straight out of the pit of hell. This spirit steals your confidence and brings fear into to your life.

 

Praying at intercession the Lord showed me that I have tolerated this spirit, and that I must break every contract that I had with this spirit, contracts that I knowingly and unknowingly went into. After cancelling every contract in the spirit I felt the heaviness leave and I know it was done.

 

We need to address and deal with this spirit. If the person with this spirit repents, we can allow that person to influence our lives when they have gone through a process of healing and restoration. If the person does not want to repent we must remove ourselves from that person’s influence in our lives. It might sound very bad, but that spirit will affect you. If you dread confronting someone, it might be that the person have a Jezebel spirit, please ask God to give you a word of knowledge and revelation about this.

 

If we don’t deal with this spirit, and separate ourselves from the person, God himself cause the separation or God will remove you.

 

Most of the things that I have mentioned we all know, but it is just a wakeup call to tap into God’s Spirit, because we so quickly get into a comfort zone and just allow this spirit to bring havoc in our lives. None of us are exempted from the spirit. Deal with it.

 

Prayer: Lord please forgive us for tolerating the spirit in our lives and allowing it to bring fear in the heart of your people. You Spirit is all the authority we need to cast her down.  Release a fresh flow of your Spirit in Jesus name.

 

 

 

Surrendered life

When the Lord takes you on a journey to rediscover what it means to have a life surrendered to Him, and what it means to walk with Him, He wants His people to be fully dependent on Him. Our whole Lives must be surrendered Him, and not just the parts that we think require rescuing.

The last month and half I have been off Facebook and some social media sites, because the Lord said it is consuming your time. I rediscovered the love of Christ, Wow, what an awesome feeling to just reconnect and realign myself to Him. We take it so for granted when people tell you Jesus loves you, we think, O I know that, why is this person saying it to me? You know why, because that person is on fire for God and God is saying to you, come back to your first love.

Yes, we do surrender to God and confess Him as our Lord and saviour, but it is so much more than just that confession, we stop short of what God want to impart in us. We walks with His light in us. Are people drawn to us because of God’s Spirit inside of us, or just because we are a good friend? Are we the solution to people around us, or are we part of the problem? Some Christians hide the light of Christ under a basket. Are we a closed lake that only takes in rain and never gives out? Because a closed lake normally becomes salty and when it becomes salty, nothing can live in it.

The questions we need to ask ourselves are simply:

Where are we finding ourselves in this season?

How can we walk in the light, but not bring light into dark places?

How can we have the fullness of Jesus Christ, but never walk in it?

Without seeking God’s face and seeking the Word, it will be impossible to love the world; and to walk in His full authority through the Holy Spirit. Why? Because we want to love the world on our terms, our ways, and our ways are not God’s ways.

A surrendered life will seek guidance from the Lord most High, will walk in the fullness of His authority, will not seek and have his own agendas, will understand the cost of His love; and portray that love to the world. The gospel that we portray to the world makes it so hard for people to see Christ, because we lack the love of Christ. Jesus is Love and He portrayed love in everything He did. Love is not requested, but it is a commandment from God. Mark 12:31 “Love your neighbour as yourself”

Why are we hiding the Love of Jesus that the world needs so desperately, why do we think it is all about us? It is not, it is all about Jesus Christ. Let each one of us search our own heart and seek God’s face to come back to the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and understand the importance of our testimonies and the Love of Christ. The world needs to see the true reflection of a changed life in us, so that Christ will be glorified. Offence will hold you back, grow in the Love of Christ.

 

Prayer: Search me o’ Lord, and help me to fully understand what it means to live a surrendered life full of Love for the world in Jesus name Amen. 

 

 

New oil

 The Lord gave me this word for the body of Christ.

I have anointed you to be My disciples, to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.I have anointed each one with a calling to go out and bring good tidings, don’t delay what I have placed inside of you, don’t delay the work I have called you for. My Spirit is always present, My Spirit is always guiding, My Spirit is always there to direct, Seek My Face, allow Me to speak into your life, allow Me to give you wisdom in situations.

 

My purpose for your life is for you to be a vessel that My Spirit can flow through, and it can only flow through you when you allow the Holy Spirit to renew you daily. The vessel that the Lord wants to move in must be a vessel that is Holy and Pure for the world to see Christ.

 

Waiting on my instructions in the secret place is vital, don’t speak in your own authority, wait on My Spirit. Allow Me to show you in what areas I want you to move, allow me to give you overflowing Love and Compassion not only for My people, but for a broken world.

Only when you seek my face can I reveal and deposit the true nature of my LOVE for the world. I am a God of Love, I am a God of peace, nothing that you face is impossible for God to heal and to use for His Glory. This is all stepping stones into your new level, where I need you to be for my next move. Take courage, be empowered with My word, stand firm on My truth.

 

I am the true vine, everybody that is in Me will grow and have new life, but a branch standing on it’s own cannot last, because that branch (person) can easily be broken by the storms of life. A branch on its own will surely die because it does not receive enough nourishment. It will always have an unstable aspect to it. Branches that grow when connected to the true vine become strong and can withstand all kinds of storms. Stay connected to the true vine Jesus Christ.

 

The Lord showed me a sponge that was soaked with oil (soaking oil of purity), and it was dripping all over the body of Christ. The revelation of this vision was that God is anointing those who have been faithful, who have been quietly and faithfully doing what God has called them to do. He has called them out to stand for His truth, not allowing the influence of the world to distract them. And those in the body of Christ receiving the anointing but not acting and moving on God’s Spirit will have a sense of being lost. Don’t allow the new oil of the anointing of God’s Spirit to pass you by without acting on it. Oil has the tendency to flow into the smallest places, even into the hidden parts of our hearts and make it new.

 

We must allow God’s Holy presence to anoint us daily with new oil. The new oil is God’s Holy Spirit.

 

Prayer: Thank you Lord for the new oil of Your Spirit.

God’s assignment

When God calls us to the courtroom of heaven, the secret place of the most high, to receive our daily assignments, the question that comes to mind is are we really ready for what God wants to share. Because we always have our own agendas and forget to allow God’s Spirit to speak and release His heart to us.

 

We need to be prepared to push through the times of being despondent, times of feeling it will never materialise. The first thing that we need to check when we start feeling despondent, is feelings of tiredness and lack in our prayer lives. This is a war that is waging in the spirit against us, that war is ongoing and it is out to wear us down. In the spirit I can feel the resistance, I can feel that people have allowed the devil to steal their time with the Lord and chaos has been released into certain situations.

 

The secret place of the Lord is our place of safety, it is our place where God instructs, where God guides,  where God restores and where we can go and repent and turn back to God.  We have lost our passion and the compassion for others; we are so busy thinking that we are doing the work of the Lord yet we have neglected people and their suffering. As long as the devil can keep us busy, we are distracted from the real fight.

 

We need to get real with where we are in the spirit, we need to understand that God is not happy with the leftovers on our tables. God should be our first priority, the first response when we are in danger, the first response when we are in pain. But most of us are not there yet, our mindsets are still in the past, we are still dwelling on things that God want to use as part of our testimony. And we are still struggling with self-image, rejection and unforgiveness. When are you going to be ready for God’s assignment?

We need to truly understand Romans 8:28 which says: “We know that all things work together for the good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Some people still question whether they are called, yes we are called! In verse 30 it says, “and those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and whom he justified he also glorified.”

 

The words in verse 28 and 30 “those who are called” refer specially to born again people that love the Lord and justified means to be made righteous in the sight of God.  No matter what situation you are facing it will work out for your good. You might not see it like that when you are in your situation, but over time you will get to see how God’s hand was in that situation.

When we are born again we no longer have our own image because scripture tells us in Colossians 3:10 “and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him”.  God created man and we are in His likeness and in His image.

 

Prayer – God I am ready for your assignment, because it is not about me but it is all about you. Use me in Jesus Name. Amen

 

Stay connected to His Spirit, examine your heart

To be separated from the Lord means we are separated from His presence and His Spirit. The indwelling Spirit of God will become still and you will lose the ability to hear His voice. Separation from the Spirit of the Lord is spiritual death. You will feel like you have lost your way and cannot find your way back on this road of salvation. When we remove the light bulb from its source of power it is dead and cannot bring light in any area. But when we become aware of His presence the Holy Spirit will ignite a fresh anointing, a fresh hunger and the ability to recognise the truth. We should let the fire of the Holy Spirit direct His purpose for our life and remove the things that is holding us back from walking in the fullness of His presence. The fire of the Holy Spirit is unique to every person, depending on how we allow the Spirit to have access to our lives. Full surrender will allow full power, full anointing and full authority in the spiritual realm.

How much are you willing to surrender to Him?

To have a clean heart before God means to always check whether your flesh has not overstepped the Lord’s boundaries, because overstepping the boundaries can cause us to walk in our own authority and lead to spiritual death. We should be quick to repent so our hearts can stay pure. If we allow our heart to be clean, our spirit will put us in line with God’s Spirit and it will awaken every aspect of your life. We will never be the same again, and because we are in line with the Lord, we will be able to discern everything around us. When our heart is unclean we are dead to the Spirit of God and the devil will have his way with us. The Spirit of God looks at the heart of every person that converts to Jesus Christ.

The Lord always looks at the condition of our hearts because out of our hearts all things have its origin. 1 Chronicles 28: 9 says: “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”

 

So be encouraged today, if the Holy Spirit reveals things to you, be quick to repent and clean out your heart. Our prayer life always needs to be intact so that we stay connected to the Holy Spirit who is your Intercessor, Guide, Teacher, Helper and so much more. God bless.

 

 

Compromise corrupts

Never ever get too comfortable with the enemy.

When we become comfortable in our spiritual walk with the Lord, we start compromising on God’s word. We allow things to come in and pass us by without recognizing the danger behind it. No compromise is worth the consequence of God’s wrath that will come upon us when we try to corrupt God’s word.

His word is pure, it is truth and will never change, not even when people try to corrupt it with their false doctrine and religious spirits. Stay alert and awake in the spirit, but even when we are not awake in the spirit God will use dreams and visions to alert you. God’s Spirit never ever sleeps.

We need to get to a place where we understand our dreams and our visions because it’s also part of God’s communication with us.  We will only be able to see in the spirit and understand when we are filled with the Spirit of God and has His truth, only then will we see the attacks of the enemy beforehand.  The devil only understands the authority we have in Jesus Christ. No other plan that we may have will be able to stand against his attack. The devil is like an animal who stalks its prey and at the right time he attacks, but we have a Shepherd that protects His flock. Only God is the true vine, he is our source of life (John 15) stay connected to Him.

We are easily manipulated because we don’t know the word of God. But when we receive the knowledge and revelation of God’s word there is no power on earth that will be able to stop you from conquering every battle that you face. God’s army enforces God’s word for your victory. We should never give up our territory, because that ground that we have gained is Holy ground unto the Lord.

When we keep our hearts open and pure before God, He will connect to our spirit and reveal the darkest secret of those who rises up against us. When God reveals these spirits we must expose them, bring it to God’s light not to destroy, but to give them a chance to repent before God almighty “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.  Isaiah 54: 17 (AMP)

Be encouraged that the devil will never give up on trying to get you down and trying to break you, but you must see his attack as a learning experience to gain knowledge so that the battlefield will be prepared for the next round.

Prayer: Thank you Lord that You have given Your angels charge over us, that we have made You our refuge and our fortress. Only with our eyes shall we look and see the reward of the wicked in Jesus name. Amen.

 

 

Set yourself free, forgive

Unforgiveness is a seed planted by Satan to keep us in bondage, and once we start watering that seed it develops a root and the more you water the seed the more roots it develops and the stronger the foundation of the root becomes. Once the foundation of unforgiveness is laid it develops into bitterness, strife, anger and rage and people see you as a negative person, always complaining and wanting to argue about everything. If unforgiveness is not confronted and remove at its core, it will become a stronghold that grows deeper and deeper and will end in self-pity and at times even suicide.

The door that we have opened for the devil to come in and manipulate and stir our emotions must be closed by us to be completely set free. Deliverance comes at a price where you will have to choose between life or death. Choosing death will keep you in bondage and in prison for the rest of your life, but choosing life gives you freedom to move forward.  Freedom comes from inside yourself by choosing to forgive yourself and others and renewing your mind on a daily basis to restore your focus. Unforgiveness imprisons you and you lose out on the love of a Father that really cares and really wants to see you free from all condemnation that the devil has brought against you.

Letting go and allowing change is not easy, but with the help of our Lord we can do all thing through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4: 13). Being scared and not wanting to change can also keep you in bondage.  By forgiving you take back the authority that God has given you and you start seeing things with a clear understanding of what God has done for you. You will know that every stronghold must go because the blood of Jesus is against it, it will have to bow in the presence of our King, and it will have to release and give back seven-fold.

The blood of Jesus is our authority and power in the spiritual realm and it gives us freedom to command what the devil have stolen from us. Leaving doors open after you have been delivered will bring a spiritual death between you and the Father.

Close the door that needs to be closed and keep it closed, choosing to open the doors God is showing you will allow you access (permission) to our Father that is always on our side, it will allow you the power of a Father that heals and restore and the authority of a King that will never lose a battle.

Today I want to challenge you – choose to set yourself free from unforgiveness, ask the Lord to show you if the seed of unforgiveness is present in your life.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in the Name of Jesus I ask forgiveness where I have opened doors and where I have given the devil a legal right to torment my body and mind. I choose to close that door now in the Name of Jesus. I repent and ask that You take full control of my life and restore me unto You and wash me with the Blood of Jesus. The glory and honour is yours in Jesus Name.

Live a resurrected life

 

To me the word resurrection means new life, new birth and new commitment.

Jesus hanged on the cross because of love; He was resurrected on the third day. The question that came to me was why three days? The Lord answered: The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit needed to reconnect in the Spirit to make sure that the devil has lost his complete hold on humanity; so that Jesus could walk in the fullness of His resurrection. Because of His resurrection we can now also walk in the fullness of having a new life in Him.

Let us get a new and fresh understanding of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He didn’t have to do it, but He loved the Father and He did it because of obedience to Himself and the Father. He offered His life as a sacrifice of praise and honour to God.

A resurrected life cannot just merely live. Because of the price that was paid, it was far more than just dying. The resurrection was the reward for the price that was paid for us, and to walk in the fullness of His life. A resurrected life needs to be on fire for God, a resurrected life needs to stand in the gap, and a resurrected life needs to walk in the authority and power of the Blood of Jesus Christ. The dark hour that Jesus had to face was worth the sacrifice for us to be free from bondage and to walk in complete victory.

When we are reminded of His resurrection, it should be a constant renewal of our mind. When we allow a gap in our lives it gives the devil the opportunity to come in and steal and bring destruction and chaos.

What have we allowed the devil to steal and keep on stealing because we just don’t get the revelation? The revelation is that there is power in the Blood of Jesus; the Blood is a very expensive gift and has the potential to change people’s lives. The devil don’t want that Word to come out, he does not want us to receive the revelation.

When we look at situations and we want to give up and say enough is enough, no more, we should find renewed strength and power in the Blood of Jesus. The blood in our veins is red and can never change colour, just like the blood of Jesus that will never lose its power. Use it to bring glory to His name.

Through His resurrection things are made new, we are a new creation in Christ Jesus and the devil has no power over us.

Prayer: Father we thank You for releasing Your Son Jesus Christ, we thank you for the cross and for the resurrection; and the power of the Blood of Jesus that will never change. Amen
