Flowing in the Spirit

As I laid in bed one morning, I was thinking of how the Lord operates. God is a God of overflow and abundance. God is currency and currency functions or operates in a continuous flow or movement. It is not stuck or stagnate. There is no time to resist but persist through opposition and the difficulties of life.

What are the patterns, beliefs, behaviors or mindsets that’s keeping you stuck or stagnate in your life? What resistance are you experiencing? Do you feel like the world is constantly moving but you’re standing still? What cycles keep you spinning your wheels while you exhaust your energy?

Take time to analyze your life. What do you need to change? Is there any fears attached to your thinking or actions? Bring those fears or insecurities to the Lord in prayer. Consult with the Father. Allow the Lord into the intimate areas where you feel or want to control everything. Be honest with yourself. Are there areas where you want to lead your life without the wisdom and direction of God? Are you rebellious or stubborn? The Lord cannot work in any areas of your life where you will not let Him in.

Call on the name of the Lord for help in those areas. Where you are weak, He is strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10 It’s not always about praying and petitioning your request before the Lord. Sometimes, you just have to be still and listen. Wait patiently for direction, a new idea, a plan, or a solution. While you wait, continue to move forward in action. Faith without works is dead. James 2:14-26

It’s within the stillness you can hear His voice, not only physical silence but mentally and emotionally too. Do you have racing thoughts? Are you dealing with confusion and chaos in your mind? Pay attention to what you listen or watch that will rob or steal your peace. Guard your heart and mind. Set boundaries with the people around you. You may not be able to control your whole environment but you can decrease the amount of unnecessary stress or tension by not entertaining or participating in the other people’s drama or issues; in other words, mind your business.

Remain consistent in prayer and begin to make the changes needed. It’s a gradual process so be patient and take the steps needed to change and shift your life. Stay focused and seek clarity.

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.

The Ascension of Christ

The resurrection of Christ is the most miraculous experience seen by men. The sacrifice of the Lord is the provision made for mankind to be set free from the law of sin and death.

After Jesus was crucified, Mary Magadalene approached the sepulche and noticed the body of Jesus was gone, she wept until she saw two angels in white sitting where Jesus laid. She turned around but did not recognize Jesus until he spoke to her.

In John 20:15-17, it reads:“ Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.”

Why did Jesus refuse for Mary to touch or cling to him? For some reason I’ve been contemplating this intricate detail for the past few weeks. I reflected back to the woman with the issue of blood for twelve years. Jesus felt virtue leave his body after the woman touched the hem of his garment. It was by faith that made her whole.

Jesus did not allow Mary to touch him until after he ascended to the Father. When Jesus returned, he allowed Thomas, one of the disciples, to touch his wounded hands and his pierced side due to his lack of belief.

John 20:24

 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

John 20:27-29

Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Unfortunately, our culture has more false prophets than we can count and misleading people by what they perceive in their own minds.

I have wondered deeply about the details of the specifics relating to faith and the miraculous power of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus returned later that evening and appeared to the disciples, he offered peace upon them and gave them the gift of the Holy Ghost.

This small section of scripture is such a powerful revelation of the testimony of Jesus and the operation of the Holy Ghost.

Unfortunately, the Body of Christ is not operating in complete faith and the full God-given authority to receive the miraculous gift of the Power of the Holy Spirit. There is no power in the midst of division, fear, doubt, or unbelief. The church has conformed to the standards of the world and at times does not look much different than the culture.

Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zech 4:6

I definitely don’t have the answer on how to bring unity to the Body of Christ, however to access the power needed to do the greater miracles which Christ did, we must walk in one accord to embody the Power of the Holy Spirit. It is available to us. Touching Jesus through prayer, renewing our minds to align with Christ, cleaning up our lives, and stepping into our faith will access the power of the Holy Spirit to heal and restore our land.

You must believe Christ is the Son of the Living God and through believing you will have eternal life through His name.

2 Chron 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Matt 9:20-22 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. 21 She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” 22 Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

Luke 8:43-48 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 46 And Jesus said Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. 45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

Divine Order Will be Established

This is definitely not a traditional New Year. The majority of us are entering the year with wounds, pains, and worries from last year. The devastation does not simply go away because it’s a new year but I believe the Father is a restorer. He will rejuvenate and refresh the weary and the faint, the brokenhearted and the down-trodden. I believe the Lord brings order out of chaos.

Sometimes, life has to get really bad before people change their ways. We ignore the signs of a slight pain in our chest or put off errands that should be priority. We often learn the hard way and take the hard road before we commit to change.

I recently decided to clear out my bedroom closet. As I took out all my clothes and miscellaneous items stored in the closet, my bedroom became a complete mess. I had things all over my bed and my floor was covered with items that I could not fit on top of the bed. With slight regret, I felt overwhelmed and wondered why I started this project in the first place.

After taking endless hours to re-organize and place the items in a designated place I felt a sense of peace and accomplishment.

As we watch the mess unravel in Washington the past couple of years, the dirt and grime of our political system was necessary to be exposed. It was never really a secret but it has definitely shined a light on the dysfunction, corruption, deception, and disgrace of American greed, power and arrogance.

The Lord is establishing order in the midst of the chaos, injustice and corruption. HE is purging the evil doers of a Babylonian system who is without honor of divine leadership. [Please note: The Babylonian system consists of both Democratic and Republican parties]. Just to clarify, both sides include corruption and deception. The demonic strongholds will be broken.

Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness. Prov 16:12

Nobody can withstand the mighty hand of the power of God. His ways are glorious and will smite the head of kingdoms of the earth. His laws and commandments will be established on the earth as it is in Heaven. The Body of Christ is the royal priesthood that will be established in the last days. They shall lead with power, wisdom and discernment. The Lord is establishing divine order through his children.

Not by might, nor by Power but by His spirit, says the Lord. Zech 4:6

Prepare ye the way of the Lord. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.

Isaiah 2:2-4

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
