Never Give Up

The inclination to give up is always there. Giving up and giving in is the easy way…it IS the broad path. Leaving what is familiar and comfortable behind and moving into the unknown, takes courage and strength…it takes REAL faith and REAL trust. Letting go IS hard. When it becomes difficult to move forward, people follow the path of least resistance. There is little resistance in falling back and being absorbed back into the world again. The world does love its own… This is a time for shoring up what is falling down, for strengthening what is weak, for shutting out the noise and distractions, for listening…TRULY listening, for searching out His will and for surrendering every area of ourselves fully and completely to Him. Storms are on the horizon and they WILL come…no one can hold them back. They are coming with a ferocity, fear and terror will descend on those who are unprepared and who have not been paying attention. People are so good at ignoring what they do not want to see and what they do not want to hear. We are NOT to live our lives in fear, yet many do. Their faith and trust is not yet where it should be. Deep down they KNOW there is uncertainty, they KNOW there is doubt, they KNOW there is fear…but they do not do anything to...

Are You Listening?

I have been spending time retreating into my Abba and reflecting. It is SO important that we learn how to shut out the distractions and turn off the constant barrage of noise, that wants to shape our thoughts and attitudes. We MUST let His word sink into us and penetrate every fiber of our being. His word is nourishment to us and literally life to us…His word breathes life into His people. Are you hearing Him speak? Are you truly listening for His voice? His word comes to us from places we least expect and in ways we never though of. Creation itself cries out and He has left His mark in many, many places. Many pass through this life NEVER seeing what He has plainly and clearly placed before mankind. So many are walking in spiritual blindness, thought they believe they see clearly. We can do such a thorough and complete job of deceiving and deluding ourselves, that there is no work for the adversary to do at all. It is TRULY time to listen…in fact it is WAY past time to listen. Who will withstand the refining fire? 2 Peter 1:19-21 19 And we have the prophetic word made more certain, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your...

Losing Hope

Sometimes we need to be reminded that NOTHING is impossible for our Elohim. We can easily fall into despair, become discouraged and lose hope. One of the traits of the true people of YHVH, is that they hold onto their hope. Even when it has been one standing against a multitude, the hope of that one saved a nation. The times of testing have begun and already we see many falling, many stumbling, many giving up, many being drawn aside and many caught up in the cares of this world. Now IS the time we should be looking up, now IS the time we should be seeking Him and His peace. Now IS the time to have a sound mind He promised He would NEVER leave us or forsake us…it is we who move away, it is we who become disillusioned and it is we that become a people without hope. We fall into a place of feeling sorry for ourselves. If you stay in that place long enough, you will NOT find your way back out. Go back to your foundation and look for cracks…make sure everything is in good repair because it is only the one who has built and stands on firm footing that will remain. Psalms 37:1-6 1 Do not fret because of evil-doers, Do not be envious of the workers of unrighteousness. 2 For...

Living With Purpose

We need to live our lives with purpose and each day with meaning. Do you have goals? Do you have something to accomplish each day? Are you working towards completing something? We can’t just live our lives day in and day out without achieving something. We can’t just say He has done it all for us and now we just wait for His return. He IS looking for a people…a people who are living His Way and guarding His Word. A people who have set their eyes on His Kingdom and do NOT look back. A people who do not listen to those who say ‘There are giants preventing our way and we are like grasshoppers in their eyes.’ A people who look to Him in faith and trust. A people who step out of the safety of the boat and take His Hand. He is preparing them, guiding them, directing them, cleansing them, purging them and making them ready. He knows them and they know Him. They are surrendered to Him, they have given themselves up to Him completely and fully. They wait on Him and live to do His Will and for His Purpose. There is purpose…there is meaning…there is urgency. Revelation 19:7-9 7 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife prepared herself.”...
