Gods Glory

God desires to shine His Glory upon us in the midst of our trials, storms and tribulations. When everything seems dark and gloomy, Gods light shines right through. When it seems like we are in a whirlwind, our eyes are to look up to God in the midst of the storm. Do not focus on the storm surrounding us but keep your eyes to The Lord. When your eyes are focused on the storm, what do you see? I see confusion, kayos, fear, doubt, lack of faith, pain, hurt etc. The mind is powerful. It is the battlefield. Transform your thinking and focus on Abba Father. Our creator, our healer, our provider, our deliverer. He is the Great I AM! Have faith, trust and believe. When your situation looks impossible in the natural, just remember there is nothing too hard for God. The storms are designed to build us up. To make us stronger. We are warriors prepared for the battlefield. We are girded up with our shield and sword ready for battle.

Ephesians 6:10-18 NIV, " Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition, to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people.

Living Waters

The Word of The Lord is powerful. It gives revelation knowledge and healing for the Spirit, Mind and Body. It is sharper than any two-edge sword. It is refreshing, cleansing and life teaching. Water is symbolic of the Word. If we drink of His Word, we shall never thirst. Next to oxygen, water is the most essential element to human life; the body usually cannot survive longer than several days without water (a maximum of 1 week). Water is essential to the functioning of every single cell and organ system in the human body. Our brain is made up of 75% water. If the Word is symbolic of water, than we need to drink more of it in order to survive. If we are not drinking enough water, than our mind is dehydrated; starving for increased knowledge, wisdom and revelation. Our brains depend on proper hydration to function optimally. Brain cells require a delicate balance between water and various elements to operate. When you lose too much water, the balance is disrupted. Your brain cells lose efficiency. Dehydration can impair short-term memory function and recall of long-term memory. John 4:14, “Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well springing up to eternal."

Patience in Suffering

James 5:7-11, NIV, "Be patient , then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near. Don't grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!

Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we count as blessed those who persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy."
