There are seasons in life, and changes in life that are inevitable. Learn to move forward in faith through everything–looking to Jesus. If you are struggling with being in a desert situation or wilderness, fear of the future, sorrow over the past, abandonment from a spouse or parent, a broken heart, or struggling with life changes due to health issues, may God encourage you through His Word and through people who love you. 

There are times in life when everyone struggles with discouragement and despair. David is a great example of a man who struggled with real life emotions that come to all. It is comforting to know that he lived a long time ago and wrote down his emotions for us today in the Psalms. 

Take time to record your thoughts and prayers, and the answers from God in a journal. It will help you to remember the goodness and faithfulness of God. 

We have all walked through something that was painful. Take time to read my first book GOD’S PRICELESS TREASURE (How To Overcome Challenges, Be Transformed and Know Your Purpose)…published by Charisma/Creation House Press in 2011. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, www.starministriesinc.com and other distributors. 

I pray God encourages you and fills your heart with hope and love—fully knowing He has a plan and purpose for your life—and it is good.

God bless you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018

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!

NEVER DOUBT GOD’S LOVE

Written by Deborah. Posted in #GodAlwaysWins, #TellTheWorld, #TellTheWorldAboutJesus, Anger, Believe, Betrayal - Judas Kiss, Destiny, DRAMA TO DESTINY, Encouragement, God, God's Love, Love, PAIN TO PURPOSE, Prayer, Repentance, Resurrection Power, Seek God, STEP INTO PURPOSE, The Midnight Hour (Will America Turn Back To God?), TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH, Trust God, Waiting, weeping, Wisdom, Worry, Worship

Never doubt God’s love. There is something quite beautiful and amazing about God’s capacity to cause all things to work for good–because of Jesus.

“How blessed is the man whose strength is in THEE: in whose heart are the highways to Zion! Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring” –Psalm 84:5-6.

Baca means “weeping.”  Most people have had times of weeping when hearts and hopes feel crushed in this life through some crisis, hardship, betrayal, or devastation. 

Do not ever doubt God’s love. Remember, He answers prayer in ways we might not think. He always does it in ways so we know it’s HIM. He goes to extreme measures to make Himself known. 

Because God has placed in our hearts “highways to Zion,” when we pass through valleys; we do not live in them. We pass through with Jesus. Once we are on the other side of weeping (having experienced extreme heartbreak, betrayal, and hurts) our Redeemer makes our valley experience into “a spring.” The very thing that overwhelmed us, no matter if it was for a season or even years, in time, will refresh us because we know that God was with us through it all. We look back and see His Hand behind the scenes of the past, and know He is with us in the present and whatever the future may hold. We are able to share of His goodness because we have a new testimony. 

Has someone hurt your deeply? Has the enemy isolated you and caused you to doubt God’s love? Never forget—even the hairs on your head are numbered. God cares deeply. It is His great love for us that redeems our hardships. He brings good out of what was meant for evil—remember the story of Joseph in God’s Word. He was betrayed by his brothers and they left him to die. He was unjustly accused by Potiphar’s wife, imprisoned and forgotten by all EXCEPT GOD. God watched Joseph’s reaction to difficulty and was with him through it all. Rich or poor, blessed or persecuted, Joseph served God. Joseph was on trial before men—but was found innocent by God. God used everything Joseph went through to shape him for His purpose. 

God uses our redeemed hardships to train us to deliver other people. Jesus was a man of sorrows. He was One who was acquainted with grief. Yet in all of what He walked through on earth, His suffering was the Father’s means of acquainting Him with the feelings of mankind’s pain and need. What have you walked through that someone else needs to hear to make it through? 

Do not forget, while we were yet sinners, Jesus Christ died for us. If we will choose to submit and surrender to God’s plan to be formed in us, God will take the sorrowful things we have walked through to enlarge our hearts and fill us with overflowing compassion. Only when we have been acquainted with grief, can we be anointed with true compassion from above to deliver others. 

As we were driving to a luncheon this week, we passed by a shopping center and saw what appeared to be some sort of equipment that made me think of Haman’s gallows in the Book of Esther. The Lord spoke to my heart and reminded me that the plots and traps people set for others, they will be caught in them instead. 

The Bible says: “So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath was pacified” (Esther 7:10). Like Esther, we can now come before the King of kings and tell him exactly how we feel, what is on our heart, and what is troubling us—the evil plotted against God’s people that the Holy Spirit has revealed. 

After seeing the hanging pole (or gallows), I chose to turn around and take a picture. It took all of two minutes. I circled through the parking lot, stopped and took the picture, and proceeded out again to the light at the intersection. Interestingly enough, the jeep in front of us had a wheel cover with the word problem upside down, and just over it in white were the words NO PROBLEM.  I knew God was making Himself known to us, and letting us know the obvious. Problems are NO PROBLEM for God. Amen. I know that someone is shouting high praises to Heaven now after reading this as well. 

Then the car in front of us at the next light had a sticker in the window with a circle on it. Inside the circle were two hearts and a CROSS. God wants us to be alert to Him to see what He is revealing. We can see manifestations in the natural of what is happening in the spirit realm—if we are alert and in-tune to God. Because God is Love, He is a communicator. In fact, God is always communicating with us. Being sensitive to the Holy Spirit is an important part of successfully navigating life. 

Be assured, God knows the number of hairs on every head, and HE knows exactly what you or someone you love is walking through right now. He will avenge you and make every crooked place straight. He is long-suffering and waits to give people time to repent. But God doesn’t wait forever. Time is short—eternity is forever—heaven and hell are real. We must choose: LIFE or DEATH.

God has not promised to keep us from valleys of pain and sufferings, but He has promised to make us fruitful in them. As we remain faithful to God in the trials of life, the likeness of Jesus Christ shall emerge in our spirits—thus Christ revealed to those around us. Other people will see the light in us as we stand strong and shine with the glory of God. 

God’s love and mine,

Deborah
