PRAY AND ASK GOD FOR SUCCESS….look at what happened with Nehemiah when he prayed and asked God for success.
Nehemiah 1:10 “They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. 11 Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”I was cupbearer to the king.
Nehemiah prayed and asked for success…..Then the King sent Nehemiah to Jerusalem where he inspected the walls, built and and repaired them. God’s heart is always for restoration and bridging the gap between man and God. God connects people on purpose for His divine purposes in the earth. Ask God what HE would have you to do with Him. Have a willing heart to partner with God. STEP OUT AND OBEY HIM. Prepare to stand out and stand alone…knowing God is with you.
God is calling us to bridge the gap between the lost and Him as we share the love of Jesus Christ. Broken bridges are appearing in families, in business, and even in churches. Stay in the Word, read the Word, pray the Word and renew your mind….allow the water of God’s Word to wash away doubt, unbelief, depression, corruption, and every fiery dart the enemy sends.
I believe that before the end of the age, the world will look at the church and see a family that can be trusted because they walk in love and their word is their bond. The strength of our witness will be determined first by how much we trust God’s Word and then by how much our own word can be trusted. Sometimes the very test (or storm) we are walking through has been totally ordained by God because people will see and witness the power of God to withstand the battle that rages. Reflect on the life of Joseph and remember that God is for us and not against us. Our part is to believe God and choose to do the right thing. Make sure your relationship with God is first priority. Be a God-pleaser, not a man-pleaser. God is more concerned with the inward purity of our hearts…than any outward appearance to man. Be a bridge builder and point people to Jesus. #telltheworldaboutJesus

THE MIDNIGHT HOUR (Will America Turn Back To God?) …a must read for all.
It is time for the church to arise and turn back to God in unified prayer and fasting. Always remember, if God can save you, He can save anybody. He saved Saul of Tarsus and changed his name from Saul to Paul. “Paul” means “a little man” and that was a constant reminder to him that he had to rely on God, not himself. He was equipped and empowered by the Holy Spirit. It takes no more grace to save a Saul of Tarsus, who was persecuting Christians, than to convert you or me.
If God could save Saul, who was persecuting Christians, He can save anyone. Saul was confronted by Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus, and realized what he had been doing was wrong. His encounter with Christ brought conviction in his heart and it led to conversion. After he was converted, Paul experienced communion, consecration (being set apart totally to God), and was commissioned by Jesus as an apostle to preach the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul had been blind, but when He met the light—the Son of God, he experienced a heart change.
We must choose to turn to God, rely on His strength, and take back our land. We must stand upon God’s Word for the lost. That is the heart of God. We have the same resurrection power within us (as believers) that raised Jesus Christ from the dead.
When we fully come to know God, we live in a state of amazement and awe through every day. We have divine appointments on a daily basis, we see God’s hand in details, and we sense His presence. God is waiting on us to be a people who will be fully committed to Him. He desires to show Himself strong on our behalf.
When we are committed and get to know the Lord, we begin to hear His voice and we know it. We hear Him in small details and we watch life unfold just as He has spoken. We live in such a state of time that we must hear God and know His voice. Whether we believe it or not, there is a war raging between good and evil. Let us pray together for revival in our own hearts and for this nation. Get back to prayer in individual homes, altars—and may it spread throughout the communities. We must fully commit to God in every area.
The Bible says, “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him” (2 Chron. 16:9, NIV). The King James Version says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew him-self strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”
In 1 Samuel 30, after David and all his men came back to Ziglag—they all wept till they had no strength left. The men that were with David blamed him and wanted to stone their own leader. But David chose to encourage himself in the Lord. He worshipped and then cried out to God in prayer. God spoke specific instructions to David—and he obeyed God. David recovered all and then helped those who stayed behind. Take time to study 1 Samuel chapter 30 and pray.
We learn a highly valuable lesson in this chapter. It’s time to understand the steps that David took–and do them as a nation. Stop allowing the enemy to destroy within. Satan sits back and laughs—because he has got people turning on one another. Choose to be the change in every situation. Go out of your way to be kind to people. Don’t fall for the enemy’s trap of isolation and shutting down communication.
God have mercy on this nation. We decree light, blind eyes opened, and a nation that turns back to God as a people. May the fire of the Holy Spirit set your heart ablaze for souls and give you a greater desire to obey God fully. Pray for the President of the United States. Pray for all leaders and choose to bless one another in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! He is coming back!
God bless you!

BOOKS BY DEBORAH STARCZEWSKI
God’s Priceless Treasure (How To Overcome Challenges, Be Transformed and Know Your Purpose)
A LEAP OF FAITH (25 Days At The Mercy Seat)….a modern, up-to-date resurrection story. This book will give you hope and faith to believe God for anything.
THE MIDNIGHT HOUR (Will America Turn Back To God?)
What is significant about the New Year? 2018 in the Hebrew is Ayin Chet, meaning “The Year of the Doorway.” The word doorway is defined as “the entrance or access into a room” and also “a threshold or point of transition.” And God is overthrowing the enemy in your life. He is making the enemy your footstool. He is opening blind eyes, and making Himself known to those who will hear and see.
CJB Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of ADONAI are everywhere, watching the evil and the good.
CJB 2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the ANONAI move here and there throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on behalf of those who are wholehearted toward him.
The LORD’s eyes are looking over all the nations for perfect and complete judgment for a new beginning. Look at Genesis 19:29: “But when Elohim destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham and sent Lot out, away from the destruction, when he OVERTHREW the cities in which Lot lived.” It is not time to play church. It’s time to follow the Lord God wholeheartedly. We must stand for what God stands for…we must stand with Israel if we want to be blessed as a nation.
If you are half-heartedly following the Lord, choose to wholly follow Him now. Choose to answer Jesus standing at the door of your heart knocking to enter. Choose to fully cross-over and follow Christ—wholeheartedly.
If you are wholly following the Lord and wonder why you had so much warfare in 2017, it is because you are a believer in Christ and are a threat to the enemy and taking territory away from him. Jesus was hated by the world as well.
Regardless of mankind’s opinion, whether you are exalted or abased, be determined in your heart and mind to wholly follow the Lord God—carry the Cross of Christ throughout conflict. Be determined to live with a forgiving heart.
None of us have arrived to perfection, but if we will live to bring pleasure to Jesus Christ, if we each have this attitude, we will put to death our reactions to criticisms. Choose to not be offended. Desperately seek to have Christ’s nature found in you and to be changed into His image.
Choose to live in the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom—and the source of every blessing imaginable. To disobey God is foolishness, expensive and disappointing.
The fear of the Lord prolongs life. (Proverbs 10:27). Choose to have a spirit like Caleb and Joshua found in God’s Word. Be a God-pleaser, not a man-pleaser. Decide today to trust and surrender your life to God.
Do you want the best for your children and family? Surrender your life to God and live before your children a godly life. If you don’t, you can’t expect your kids to do so. Choose to yield yourself to a Holy God—surrender to Jesus Christ and His ways.
We all mess up—God forgives us. He knows us perfectly. The wisest decision you will ever make is to fear the Living God and to obey Him at the slightest whisper at the door of your heart.
God has a new doorway for you to enter—a new threshold for you to walk over with Him. He wants you to put Him first in your life. He wants you to live with passion and purpose. He wants you to talk to Him when you wake up, when you get in your automobile, when you are working among people who don’t know Him, when you go to bed at night. He wants you to tell other people about Him, not only by what you say, but by how you treat them and how they see you either respond or react to life.
Choose this day to wholly follow the Lord, to fully trust Him when everything around you looks like it is falling apart—it just may be falling into place. God has the most beautiful and amazing ways of redeeming our past and using the conflicts we walk through to prepare us for our purpose in Him. (Remember the story of Joseph).
It is a beautiful thing to see how the Lord causes all things to work for good. May God cause you to forget all the troubles of the past and to see His great plan and purpose for your life WITH HIM in 2018. He wants you to walk through the new door with your divine connections from Him. He has divinely aligned you with specific people on purpose and for you to fulfill your destiny in HIM.
Choose to not settle for anything less than absolute victory! Choose to cooperate with the Holy Spirit and obey him immediately. Radical obedience opens doors that no man can close. Pray and believe God. Time spent in prayer is never wasted.
Occupy till Jesus comes. It’s a new year—and one of acceleration when you partner with the HOLY SPIRIT. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!
Blessings to you in 2018!
