Rest in your fathers house

Blessings Everyone,

To God be the glory we have made it to another day. It has been on my heart the move of God the things and places that God is bringing to my life. I don’t know about you all but at time I’m called to a rest and reset.

This is the time that I believe we have to self out Holy Spirit in. This is the time me must make sure it’s the Lord speaking and we are going forth in what God has taught us. this time requires us to be in our Fathers house learning and listening to the next steps and instructions on how to be used in the next steps.

The title today comes from the 2nd chapter of Luke. I have always said that when I need answer to where I am at in life the Father will have me study a book in the bible. I’m grateful that three years ago He gave me this outlet to over flow in. So go on ahead and stick out your cup and let’s get into the word.

  • if you are wondering who I am please go to the about me section where you can introduce yourself and get to know who I am. also if this word blesses you, you can follow and like. so that you can get notifications of new post Be Blessed

Luke chapter 2

2:4 Tells us that Joseph went to his home town of Bethlehem the town of David to register his soon to be wife who was then very pregnant Jesus. While in Bethleehem Mary went in labor and gave birth to Jesus.

2:10 The word tells us that an angel came to shepherds and told them not to be afraid that he came with great news that bring joy to the people. “Today in the town of David a savior has been born.

2:13&14 A great company of the heavenly host appears with the angel saying “Peace to those on whom his favor rest.

This word reminds us that Gods favor brings us peace. we are walking in the favor of Gods that at the birth of Jesus we were given Joy for all people. our savior (a person who saves someone or something) was born.

we go to God because when we are confused or stressed. God brings us peace and Joy. we take rest in Him at the moments of distress. This is how we grow, this is how we refuel to the next step. we are taught that Gods plans for us are for God and not evil Jeremiah 29:11 which means that if we are in a moment of why? or I can’t, that means we need to seek the kingdom of God and all it’s righteousness Matthew 6:33.

2:34&35 Simeon prophesy over Jesus in the temple destined to cause the falling and rising, so that the thoughts of many will be revealed.

What are the thoughts of your heart? We always speak about out fruit. When Jesus comes in the thing that is deep in your hearts come out. For some the worst wil come out before the better. We call that purging. Jesus does some spring cleaning. we fall before we rise, this humbles us for our rise. you’ve been there and know how it feels we becodme witnesses of the fall and the rise.

For those that have already fallen, they began to see a new thing and build up! You see kwe either meet Jesus and go to our knees or crawl to Jesus and He picks us up.

2:46-49 Jesus says to Mary and Joesph Didn’t you know I was in my Fathers House? When we begin to build we start at a point where God has us. That’s the time to be still and learn, listen, and ask questions.

When Mary & Joseph finally found 12 year old Jesus, he says; Didn’t you know I had to be in my father’s house.

2:49 Others around us will think we are lost. they’ll be wondering were we are, others won’t even notice us, we have been hidden from their sight.

This is for those who are wondering why they are being ignored. We at times must be in a place of preparation. God is nourishing the grounds, giving the soil everything it needs to grow. This place your spirit is in the Fathers house. This is your time to ask God fyour questions, listen and absorb as much as your being fed.

2:52 Jesus grew in wisdom…. when we take that time we grow in wisdom and obedience

our Job on this earth is to grow in obedience. grow wisdom (excel) and be fisher of men we are walking like Jesus. Jesus took the time to learn and grow in His Fathers house so don’t you neglect that moment for the spirit that lives in you!

sometimes we have to shut our mouths

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are well and moving in the things that you’re called in. It’s been a while and I do apologize, I have been building other rooms in the foundation. I have been blessed to have been able to build and establish other outlets to push out the word of God.

As I was writing my thrive weekly schedule God started to give me instructions on comeback to the blog. I’m actually pretty excited because it pushes me to study the word of God and go deeper. I won’t keep you to long but welcome back if your coming back. welcome if your new to Journey in praise Bible Study. Please see the about section to learn who I am and what I do, you can also find the outlets to reach me.

Luke Chapter 1

Chapter 1 takes us to the preparation of the birth of Jesus. Before the birth of Jesus there was a first step. It’s important to understand that we first have to go through the building portion. As a disciple of Christ I learned that God is strategic in all the things He does. Before the big thing we must go through the first step. first he created light, John came before Jesus. I’m sure that there are something in your life that God put in a strategic order and at this moment the Holy Spirit is showing you exactly what that thing is.

Before Mary was impregnated with Jesus her cousin Elisabeth was pregnant with John. now we know that John baptized Jesus so of course he had to be the first .

The beginning of Luke tells us that the angel Gabriel came to Zacharias who was a priest married to the daughter of Aaron ( Moses brother). Zacharias and Elisabeth were righteous before God which means that they loved, respected and honored God. Gabriel tells Zacharias that his wife Elisabeth was going to get pregnant at her old age and name the child John. Now we know that this can happen because we know that the Lord did this first with Sarah and Abraham. let me add this detail that Elisabeth was barren.

Gabriel told Zacharias that he and his wife was going to be given a son. The word tells us that John would be filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb. Luke 1:15

Now Zacharias did not believe Gabriel he found it hard to believe that his wife was going to get pregnant she was well past child baring age, she was barren. Because Zacharias did not believe Gabriel, Gabriel says to Zaharias that he’s going to make him dumb. Zacharias could not speak.

There was no telling anyone what the angel Gabriel had said or when he had visit Zacharias had to keep his mouth shut. Sometimes God gives us something that we have to keep our mouths shut about. somethings seem so unbelievable that our tongues become twisted. we can’t tell someone because we can’t believe it.

The word tells us six months after visiting Zacharias Gabriel visited Mary in Galilee. the word tells us that 8 days after John was born he was circumcised and they were getting ready to name him after his father and Elisabeth said that his name would be John, when they went to Zacharias he was able to speak and started praising God.

. This chapter makes me think about the saying moving in silence. Zacharias didn’t go around writing on his tablet what Gabriel told him nor did his wife repeat it. In this day we have that habit of talking too much. I’m guilty of this one as well.

Somethings are between us and God. Zachrias and Sarah’s story is an example of how we should be handling the babies that God has given us.

In Prayer God shows you a vision

we Write it down

we speak on it to everyone

This makes room for others to put there mouths (negativity) on what God has given you.

okay what God has for you is for you, BUT when you allow others in, you allow them to influence your thoughts and your prayers they begin to put you in a place of wavering faith.

Can I tell you we should be spending our pregnancies in silence, we should be waiting to open our mouths after we give birth. All they can do is praise God

Did you catch that? They begin to praise God for what he has done in your life Miracles signs and wonders!

Jonah Chapter 3

Blessings Everyone!

I pray that you all are being Obedient in what thus says the Lord our God concerning you.

This third chapter in the book of Jonah had me realizing a thing or two about how big our brains make things seem. We will talk ourselves out of doing something great in a micro minute, just because fear jumped in. That feeling of being unworthy can choke the life out of your purpose.

I can only assume that it was fear of something that kept Jonah out of Ninevah. He might have feared that no one would listen to him or he could have feared being over turned by the wickedness. That fear took him straight in to disobedience right into the belly of the great fish.

To the followers thank you for your fellowship and support. If you happen to have been scrolling and came across this blog Welcome! Here we fellowship and enjoy the word of the Lord. Feel free to comment below and like. If you are led please follow the blog so that you can receive notifications of new blog posts. Let me introduce myself!

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve is as a Prophetess, Founder of Journey in Praise (blog, podcast, broadcast) and author of the Faith Walker series (Service in Glory & Building a foundation of faith) Let’s get into the word!

Jonah Chapter 3

Jonah goes to Ninevah

The chapter starts off by saying; The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time. The Lord told Jonah to go to Ninevah and deliver the message He game him the first time.

This time Jonah was obedient. The word tells us that Ninevah was a very large city and it took three days to go through. On the first day in Jonah began proclaiming what the Lord said which was in forty days the city of Ninevah will be overthrown.

The people of Ninevah believed God, they started to fast and put on sackcloth from the youngest to the oldest, from the richest to the poorest.

I couldn’t help but notice all the trouble Jonah caused himself, being in the belly of a great fish for three days and three nights and his task was so easy.

We are just like that, God gives us an assignment and we run from it. we keep running into barriers, we find our =selves stuck in the tornado’s of crazy life lessons. Then we find out the thing that we were so afraid of the thing that the Lord had shifted us to go wasn’t that bad, it was actually the easiest thing to do.

For Jonah the people believed the message he had from God, they went right to repenting and mourning.

verse 6-10

The word says when Jonah’s message reached the king. The king took off his robes and put on sackcloth, the word says that the king sat down in the dirt. The king issued a proclamation;

Everyone and thing is not to eat or drink anything. Everyone should be covered with sackcloth and everyone should be in fervent prayer. The king proclaimed that everyone was to loose themselves from their evil ways and violence. He told the people to hope that God has compassion on them and that they will not perish. The word says that when God saw their action and how they turned from their evil ways , he relented and didn’t bring them the destruction that He threatened them with.

We serve a forgiving God, the Lord sent Jonah with a warning. Even though Jonah was disobedient he still ended up being reminded of the assignment over his life.

Because Jonah walked in his assignment people lived, lives were spared and sins were forgiven.

No matter ho you feel about a person or a people, your main concern should be what God has called you to do. What you have is set up to save someones life.

Listen! if you know that you have a purpose on your life, if you have a feeling like there is something is calling you, it’s time to get instruction from the creator . Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Believe in your heart and with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died for our sins and on the third day God raised him with POWER that you shall be saved.

Find you a bible based church, start building your relationship with God through a prayer life and get yourself around like-mind people and begin to walk by faith

Be Blessed

Run the Race!

Blessings Faithwalkers

I pray that you all are walking upright and Blameless!!!

I have been deep into the study of righteousness and was waiting on , instructions on the blog.

Can I be transparent for a moment? It has been a task trying to adapt to the new format of the blog. For a couple of years now I have been doing bible study here on this platform. At this moment in time, I’m just led to talk and share what I’ve learned and I sit here wondering what to say. The Holy Spirit is saying, type about your lesson learned talk about your milestones crossed.

Next to me is a lesson on praise in our righteousness and on the tiltle which will probably be changed it reads the same thing. yet my spirit is not in a teaching moment it;s in a sharing moment .

I guess what I have learned this week is that, this is not my blog, this is not my ministry, my plans are changeable. When we say, I am your vessel Lord use me, expect to be used when ever and how ever He sees fit.

This weekend I completed 40 days of devotionals from my book Service in Glory. I was able to witness the 2 followers have breakthroughs in their lives. that’s what this walk is about. to help our neighbors get to where God wants them to be. assist in the journey.

The Holy spirit is showing me a vision of a person running a race and people standing on the sideline with water, medics ready to repair and ice down an ache.

That’s what help does! As we are running toward God’s purpose for our lives. The water is the word to get you through when your throat is dry from panting in fervent prayer and praise, a medic for when your spirit has been broken, your faith tested. Support to cheer you on the way. Some are there for you and others are there to watch you. Never the less your position is to focus on finishing, you can’t give up even if you have to finish the race on your knees. God wants you to know that He will carry you the rest of the way as long as you are consistent.

The works of our hands are all for God’s Glory Psalm 51:13 tells us that we work and move in purpose so that sinners will turn back to God. They will see our light and move forward. We are drawn to the light when we are stuck in Dark places.

Be Blessed

Listen , If you are stuck in a dark place and desire to be illuminated by the light of God say this prayer.

Lord God ,

I am but a sinner in this word, I do be leave that you have placed me on this earth for your will and your purpose, I do believe in my heart that Jesus is LOrd and came down from his throne just so that I can be seen by the Father. I declare with my mouth That Jesus died for my sins and rose in three days with power, Lord forgive my trangression and iniquities and wash me of my sin whiter than snow so that I  can be a light in this world in the name of Jesus, Amen

Enjoy your journey in Praise

Sinning Ain’t Winning Part II (Psalm 51)

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are working on and walking in righteousness! It may at times be trying for us, but it is important that at trying times we walk in 1 John 3:7 and not let others lead us astray. we must keep in mind that we need to walk right as Jesus walked right. we are to focus on looking like God, being his image.

let’s talk about Psalms 51. Yesterday the Holy spirit led us to the scripture of cleansing. In 2019 I’m sure you have heard a lot of people talk about Deliverance, when we go and ask God to Deliver us from things that are attaching itself to us, the first step is to ask God to cleanse us.

We say; Lord have Mercy on me~ have compassion for me, your love is right on time. and then we ask God to take away our transgressions. Knowing that God wants us to spend sometime with Him so that He can teach us and speak in to and through us, He waits for us to come to Him and say Father I keep messing this thing up, nothing seems to go right.

I go left and the door is closed I go right and something is in front of my path, Lord I don’t have the strength alone to move it out of my way. The Lord begins to show us the things that we have allowed to clutter our path from Him. These are the things that we begin to put before Him, making them our idol.

Once we begin to see, the things we have done, we ask God to wash us of our immoral behavior; our wickedness. we ask to be cleansed because we now know better, so now we ask for the help to do better because we know our transgressions are always before us.

the Psalm reminds us that we sin only against God, and God can only judge us. we acknowledge that we are born with a sinful nature from the time that we were conceived; yet God desires us to be faithful from the womb. (mother’s pray with your babies in gestation)

We have faith that when the Lord cleanses us with hyssop we will be clean. When the Lord washes us we will be white as snow. e believe that the Lord will create in us a pure heart and a steadfast spirit. We ask the Lord not to take us from His presence or take the Holy spirit from us.

Now after the Lord has cleansed us and we have been washed from our sins and changed into white garments Zechariah 3:5 then comes our righteous walk.

Psalm 51:13 Tells us that once we are cleansed, we begin to walk as teachers to sinners. God will open our lips and we will sing his praise.

We learn from this study that once you are free and cleaned of your transgressions, you start to win. You begin to teach others and help them come to the Lord for a cleansing of their sin. It’s important for us to pass on what we have learned Jesus told the disciples to go out and do this Matthew 28:19.

If you are ready to stand in position in your purpose Pray with me!

Heavenly Father

Thank you for your Love and Grace, Lord God wash me of my sins, purify me God, create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit with in me. Lord I declare with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I believe in my heart and spirit that He died for my sins and on the third day rose in power. Father God Thank you for Salvation In Jesus name Amen

Welcome into the family of God, May God bless your Journey

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 27

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in the understanding of your purpose and faith of the will of God for your life.

If you happen to be scrolling and stumbled on this blog, Welcome! Please follow so that you can receive notifications of future post. If you are a follower, Welcome Back! Thank for joining in, I appreciate you all and am grateful for the fellowship and study.

For those who do not know who I am, my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servantnew-journey-in-praise-flyer of God, some of the ways that I serve God is through this blog and the prayer wall of From Sinner to Saint, I am the founder of Journey in Praise Ministry where you can find resources to many outlets to help you on your journey I am also the Author of the 40 day devotional Service in Glory. I also serve on the encouragement team in Walk it out Ministry. Alright let’s get into the word.

Isaiah Chapter 27

Deliverance of Israel

The word starts out telling us the Lord will punish with his powerful sword. He will slay the Leviathan the monster of the sea. (The Leviathan description can be found in Job 41:13, it says the scales are so close it cannot be pierced through)

The word speaks of a fruitful vineyard where the Lord continually water it, and guard it day and night, so that no one may harm it.

The word continues to say that the Lord will be the refuge; as long as peace is made.

 

Isaiah goes on to say that the Lord says that the people of Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit. They will be forgiven

When Israel make all the alter stones (of the pagans) crushed to pieces. The word says the fortified city (The strengthened city) will be left desolate (deserted). Branches stripped and bare, the twigs dried that they will be used for fire. Isaiah says this is a people without understanding (lack knowledge) and so their maker has no compassion. This verse will continue by saying their creator will show them no favor.

I haven’t done this in a while, let me butt in. when we are not continually searching for answers, studying the word and trying to hear, and seek God, we become a people that lack understanding, when we lack understanding we lack knowledge. In Hosea 4:6 the word of God says my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge. I also reject you as my priest; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.  Confirmation.

The Chapter ends by saying that Israel will be gathered up one by one, a great trumpet will sound, those who were perishing and those who were exiled will come and worship the Lord, on the Holy mountain in Jerusalem.

Be reminded that the Lord Our God is here to water us and protect us, he is our defensive wall, as long as we turn away from the things that is not of Him, as long as we make peace with Him, then we will blossom.

 

Glory be to God, If you have no desire to perish (spiritually) or be exiled and you want to get build a relationship with Our savior Jesus Christ, turn your bible, google or download the youversion free bible app to Romans 10:9, Decree with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, and you shall be saved. Find a bible-based church, place yourself among like-minded people and begin a healthy prayer life. Allow the Lord to come in refresh, renew and restore your spirit

I serve as the Founder of Journey in Praise Ministry and women in praise Facebook group, I am also the Author of Service in Glory devotional.  Okay Let’s get in to the word of God!

Isaiah Chapter 25

Praise to the Lord

Verse 1- 12

This word starts off with the Prophet Isaiah praising and exalting God, He says “for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.

Isaiah speaks of the Lord taking down a city to a heap of ruins, the strong hold of the foreigners will be no more and never rebuilt.

And so, the strong people will honor you (Speaking to the Lord) cities of ruthless nations will revere (Respect) you.

Isaiah says in his praise to the Lord, that He (the Lord) will be a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy and their distress and a shelter from the storm. (Hallelujah) A shade from the Heat. (My God)

Isaiah goes on to say that on the Mountain the Lord will prepare a feast of rich foods for all people, a banquet of aged wine, the best of meats and the finest of wines.

On this Mountain he will destroy the shroud (a garment the dead are wrapped in) that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; He will swallow up death forever.

Isaiah says He will remove disgrace from the earth.

In that they will say

“Surely this is our God;

We trusted in Him, and He saved us.

This is the Lord, we trusted in Him;

Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

The word goes on to say that the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain, but Moab will be trampled in their land. God will bring down their pride, despite the cleverness of their hands.

 

Amen, Amen, and Amen her lies a word for those of you who are beginning your prayer life

verse 1-6 is great for beginning praise. we serve a God who has covered us, who has prepared a healthy and rich feast by people that he has improved over the years (aged wine) the feast is fulfilling with the best of meats (the word).

In this chapter we learn that the Lord and savior is coming to swallow death forever and wipe away the tears from our faces. Even more reason to glorify God.

We also learn that the strongholds will be no more, the Lord will bring them down to dust.

Glory Be to God

If you are looking for God to redeem you and set you up on a mountain for this wonderful feast. Turn your bible, google or download the free youversion bible app go to Romans 10:9; Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your that God raised Him from the dead then you shall be saved. Find a bible-based church, get yourself into daily bible study, you can start right here with us, and begin fellowship with like minded people. Blessing and the peace of God, remember

Enjoy Your Journey in Praise!

Isaiah Chapter 24

logo_2042734_web

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your day, I pray that you all are in praise to God, that he saw fit for us to walk in another day. It’s good to be in praise but our praise becomes authentic when we know why we are in praise. A genuine praise opens the room for the spirit of God.

Isaiah Chapter 24

The Lords devastation of the Earth

The prophet Isaiah starts by saying the Lord is going to turn the Earth to waste. The word says that the Earth will be plundered. The Lord says that the Earth has been defiled by it’s people ( I’m side eyeing, as I’m thinking about what is going on now ) 😒

The word says that they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statues and broken the everlasting covenant, it’s people must bear it’s guilt.

It goes on to say; all joy turns to gloom, it follows with all joyful sounds are banished from the Earth (v11)

Isaiah says the people are all happy and singing ” Glory to the righteous one” but  he sees the unseen and they will fall. the Earth will shake and the people of the Earth will fall in a pit, those that climb out will be trapped. The Prophet says the moon will be dismayed  (confused) the sun ashamed (hide) In the brackets is the words the Holy spirit gave me while reading this word.

The Chapter ends with “For the Lord almighty will reign on mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before it’s elders- with great Glory.

Can I say that this Chapter had me in my feelings. First it took me awhile to glean from this chapter. usually I will read and the holy spirit will jump right in and teach me. But In the beginning of the year I had a dream involving the ground opening up and fire falling from the sky and landing on me but I did not get burned, my family and I actually got out of the town safely To God be the Glory. that dream kept interrupting my lesson.

I believe we all quietly worry about the end of the Earth and pray that we are doing all that we need to do, before Jesus comes back, it almost makes me want to be like Abraham and say Lord if their are 10 good people will you save the Earth.

This prophecy is why servants are so important, we want to be able to saturate the Earth with praise to heaven. There is so much hate self hate; lack of humanity; selfishness that I believe the Father is in heaven SMH’n ( you know what I mean).

What I ask you to take away from this chapter is give God praise, help someone find there self on the remnant side of this battle, help your neighbor make praise a habit. No we can’t change the Prophecy God is not a man that He should lie, but he is coming back for the church, so when you look to the left or to right, try to help the person you see prepare themselves for that Journey.

Blessing If you would like to start your relationship with Our Lord and Savior, do me a favor, turn your bible, download the youversion bible app, or google; Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get yourself in a bible based church,  start your word study, and find yourself a group of like minded individuals to fellowship and begin to build your foundation on Faith!

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 6

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going forth with full power, not half power but full power. When we walk in faith, we are walking with God, we are allowing God to led us in to everyplace that he knows that we will soar in. So today where ever God is leading you please go forth in the full power that God has gifted you in.

Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.

Matthew Chapter 6

Jesus Teaches about giving to the needy

Verse 1- 4

Jesus Teaches us to be careful not to display our righteous acts, for everyone to see. The word says If you do, you will have no reward from your father in heaven. The Lord says be sure not to announce your charitable deeds with trumpets like the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. The Lord says when you give to the needy, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving maybe in secret. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

 

Praise God, this verse is very important especially in this day. I have scrolled on Facebook and seen videos of people feeding the homeless and just had to press record.  When we have been moved in our heart to do something for someone else and we have the means to do that thing. The Lord says that it is important that we go forth in secret if you press play for a praise from others then you have been rewarded already.

You can’t serve two gods so either you go forth and get the praise from man, or you go forth and allow the lord to open the storehouse and pour out your reward. I don’t know about you but if I am obeying the Lord by helping someone who needs me then I don’t want the praise of man, because the praise isn’t for us it’s for God who gave us the means to provide what was needed.

Verse 5 – 15

Jesus Teaches about Prayer

Jesus has spoken to us about praying, we are told not to go and pray standing out in other places, but to go to a room, close the door, and pray to your father, who is unseen. Then your father sees what you have done in secret, he will reward you. Jesus says and when you pray do not keep babbling like pagans, because they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them for your father knows what you need before you ask him. Jesus says this is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts,

Has we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

Jesus says If you forgive men who sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive your sins.

 

The word tells us that when we pray go to a quiet place so that you can hear the Lord. When we are in church and we are in the street we pray in fellowship but we should be spending personal time with God.

Jesus shows how to begin our prayers. When we pray we are saying, Our father in heaven Holy is your name. we are asking God to lead us by his will on this earth as he has placed in heaven. God places us high, we place ourselves low. Anything that we would like to have God wants us to have better. we cannot even imagine the things that we could have. I am not only talking about material, if you are going to God for material things then you are going for the things that you idealize. I’m talking about better spiritually because you can have all the material things that you desire and still feel empty. You want peace of mind in a beautiful place, you want to be filled with the glory of God and your overflow will surround you. We want God to give us our instruction for the day, our daily lessons. We want the father to forgive us for the things that we owe him. Forgive us for not spending time with him, forgive us for not following his law, forgive us for not listening to his instructions. when we don’t deposit in to the storehouse how can we expect to have a bountiful overflow when the lord opens the storehouse (If you want to know more about the storehouse, go to Deuteronomy chapter 28). We make a covenant to forgive those who take away from us, forgive those that owe us. We ask God to not lead into temptation, but keep us from evil.

Anything that you want from the Father he already knows, he knows all things, so while we have finished the begin of the prayer, we are to be ready to praise him for already fixing it. Our faith is knowing that everything that comes our way has already been fixed and prepped better.

we can’t go around thinking we are too good to forgive someone who has wronged us, and expect God to forgive us. We should be ready to say if you did this to me or that to me, then you must have been fighting a spiritual battle that you lost. I am not mad at you, I will offer pray for your strength the next time your spirit goes to war.

 

Verse 16 – 18

Jesus teaches about fasting

Jesus tells us that when we fast, don’t walk around looking somber to show people that you are fasting. Jesus says when you are fasting put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it is not obvious to men that you are fasting, but to the Father, and he sees what you have done and he will reward you.

We should not be walking around looking distressed and hungry when we are fasting. When we are fasting, we are in God’s presence and we should not be worried about who knows that we are fasting. Your fast isn’t about others it is about you and God. Now if you are led to have a group fast, you’re not going to be walking around like it is the worst thing you ever done, and you can’t wait to be finished. You should be walking with the glory of God on you.

 

Verse 19-24

Jesus teaches about money

Jesus teaches not to horde the treasures that is of this earth, but to horde the treasures of heaven. Because where your treasures are, your heart will be

 

 No need to rush out to get new things to put on display, do not need to break our back to make money to have the best of everything for ourselves. when we are more worried about making money for ourselves we are busy in selfishness. We are not busy for the spiritual purposes, matter of fact we are so busy on our hustle for more money, more things, that we let days, weeks, months go by before we spent time with God. We lose focus on what the true treasure is, like I said earlier you can have all the material things and the best of them but if you  aren’t linked to God your spirit is still going to feel empty, you’re in debt with God.

 

Verse 25 – 33

Jesus Teaches about Worry

Jesus tells us not to worry about food and clothes, Jesus askes us; isn’t your life and your body more important than food and clothes? Jesus reminds us to look at the birds, they do not sow, reap, or store, and doesn’t the Father provide for them, aren’t you more valuable to him than they are? Jesus asks; by worrying can you add an hour to your life?

Jesus says O’ you of little faith? Do not worry about what to eat or what to drink or what you’re going to wear. Your father knows that you need them, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble.

Amen I cannot say it enough when we worry about things of this earth, we eliminate faith. Our worry, especially to a believe says that God isn’t Sovereign. I’m not saying it’s easy, what I am saying is keep moving in God’s presence so that you may be led to the things of God, and anything that is of God is good.

Matthew Chapter 4

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that in this day the angels are lifting you up so that your feet will not strike against any stone.

It gets hard and confusing at times, just continue to push through and grab on to God’s vision. We may not know what is going to be standing in front of us, but what we do know is that we WILL be lifted over it.

Matthew Chapter 4

Satan Tempts Jesus in the desert

Verses 1-11

The word tells us that after Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist, the spirit led him in to the desert to be tempted by the devil. After he fasted for forty days and forty nights he was hungry. The word says the tempter came and said

If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread

Jesus answered

It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word, that comes from the mouth of God

The word says that the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple

If you are Son of God, he said throw yourself down. For it is written

He will command his angels concerning you,

And they will lift you up in their hands,

So that you will not strike your foot against a stone

Jesus answered him

It is also written

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.

The word says that the devil took him to the highest mountain and said

All this I will give you, if you will bow down and worship me.

Jesus said

Away from me Satan, for it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.

Then the devil left and the angels attended to him

When we are walking toward righteousness and moving in the provision of God. We get tempted. Tempted to go back and do the things that we once have done. Tempted to step out of character. Think of Jesus who Commanded Satan to get away from him.

It’s time for us to start to command the tempter to go! And when we command Satan to go the angels will come and attend to us. Why? Because the Holy Spirit lives within us.

 

Jesus begins his ministry

Verses 12- 17

The word says when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison he returned to Galilee this fulfilled the prophesy through Isaiah

Land of Zubulun and land of Naphtali,

The way to the sea, along the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles

The people living in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of shadow of death

a light has dawned.

From that time on Jesus began to preach,

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.

No matter what goes in in our lives as Christians, we learn that the most valuable information to pass on is Salvation.

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near

This was the beginning of Jesus’s ministry be for the miracle signs, and wonders it was repent.

What the Father has already put in place will come to pass. What the father has already meant for your purpose on this earth is already waiting in the spirit realm.

 

Verses 18 – 22

Four fishermen follow Jesus

The word says that Jesus was walking along the sea and saw Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew throwing there fishing net and Jesus said to them.

Come follow me and I will make you fisher of men

And they followed. Then he saw James and his brother John who were in a boat with their father and Jesus called to them tow come with him and they did.

As I was writing this I asked why fishermen? the Holy Spirit reminded me how patient fishermen are, how patient we have to be when ministering to people. Some will jump in the net but others will run and you will have to be patient enough to let them come on their own.

 

Verses 23 – 25

The word tells us that Jesus went through Galilee preaching the good news of the kingdom in synagogues, healing the sick, ill, and disable.

When we think about Jesus we think about his sacrifice, paying the ransom for our souls. But getting to know Jesus is about his walk before he got to the sacrifice. The walk that some of us struggle to walk. The faith that it takes to allow God to rule over every aspect of our lives taking nothing back that we have given him.

Faith that allows us to be patient fishermen, faith that confirms that we are servants for the kingdom of God. Faith that allows us to heal, pray, and overcome. Faith that allows us to believe that the angels Will lift us up and our feet will not strike against a stone.
