Touch the World, in the Name of Jesus Christ

I am ready! I am ready for this season now, in this name of Jesus Christ!

“~A person’s steps are ordered by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?”~Proverbs 20:24, NIV~

Yes, dear reader: I am in a season of transition. This season of transition is beyond my own human understanding, but I thank the Lord God for it because it is growing me into the woman and follower of Jesus Christ, who the Lord ordained for me to become in such a time as this.

I work at a daycare for children. Working at the daycare has allowed for the Holy Spirit of God to give me discernment as to what my calling is: children and serving children is all a part of God’s special calling for my life. I have seen the Holy Spirit of God, alive and at work, in the lives of the children at the daycare. The Holy Spirit of God through the children have even helped me to understand a part of God’s plan and purpose for my life.

~”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”~Jeremiahs 29:11, NIV~

At the daycare, the Holy Spirit of God has fallen afresh on me. I have prayed, both silently and outloud, for the infants. I sang the song, “This Little Light of Mine,” to them. I wanted to be more than just about myself, but allow the Holy Spirit of God to enter into me at the daycare as I am the empty vessel and Jesus is Lord. I also bless the food by praying in front of the preschool class before I eat lunch (yes.—–I’m not ashamed to pray in front of them).

Dear reader, the Lord has used me in mighty ways to proclaim who Jesus is to the infants, toddlers, preschoolers, in other ways too: even the smallest of ways. Whether it is by giving the toddlers a hug or by pushing the preschoolers on the swing on the playground, the goodness and love of Christ are proclaimed at the daycare: everyday.

That’s right. Every. Single. Day. You may be wondering why I go to great lengths and depths to make the love of Jesus Christ known to these little ones. I want to make everyday count. I want to make every breath I breathe and every word I speak into the atmosphere matter because my character is a reflection of the image of God that is in Jesus Christ. I want to give an offering that is only found in the eternal life of Jesus Christ.

I remember when I was feeding a young baby a bottle of milk. As she was resting in my arms, she gazed up at me and I looked down at her. I sang the song, “Jesus Loves Me,” to this sweet little baby. and rocked her and rocked her to sleep. About twenty minutes later, this precious baby fell asleep! Hearing the Word of God being sung to this baby brought the peace of God to her soul! 

~”And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 4:7, NIV~

You see, dear reader: the Holy Spirit of God is alive and active. He is definitely at work and doing mighty things so that the children can see and know who Jesus is at the daycare. I am humbled by everything that God has accomplished and will not stop until His Holy Spirit says, “It is finished!”

God is good! My hope is that He can use you, dear reader, in whatever situation or circumstance that you are in to bring the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to your friends, your family, and beyond! Let us pray! 🙂 :

How He Loves You and Me, in the Name of Jesus Christ

Praise God!

Today, I am thankful to God for many things. I thank Him for the sunshine, the flowers, and especially for my personal relationship that I have with Jesus Christ.

Dear reader, my personal relationship with God the Father is of utmost importance because of the Best Friendship that I share with Jesus Christ.

I have many other friends in the world, at church and outside of church, BUT Jesus Christ is MY Best Friend. Period.

People are imperfect. People have flaws. I mess up. And you make mistakes because you are only human. But Jesus lived the perfect life that no other man could have lived on earth. He died the death that I deserved. He took my place. For me. All for me, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.”~1 Thessalonians 5: 14, New International Version~

One day, I will go to heaven. One day, I will be with my Eternal Best Friend. One day, I will fall at my Sweet Savior’s feet and kiss them. One day, I will give Jesus a big hug and tell him, “Thank You for your goodness on earth!”

~”You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”~Psalm 23:5-6, New international Version~

I will make it to that day, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I cannot wait until that day, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I cannot wait until that day I sing and shout praises to Almighty God as I constantly worship the Father. With peace, in solitude, and with loud breath. Praise the Lord! 

~”Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”~Psalm 150, 1-6, New International Version~

Praise the Lord!

God is watching over me , in the Name of Jesus Christ. He is watching over me, even now. From Heaven, His Holy Spirit falls afresh on me so that my eyes are anointed to see past the faults of my offenders and give the greatest Love of Jesus to everyone I meet (from my family to the the poorest person on the street).

I remember going to work on the Marta bus the other day. A poor man was asking Marta bus passengers for .25 cents.

I prayed to God the Father how I could bless this man. As I prayed, the Holy Spirit of God led me to give him $1.00. So, I kindly gave him $1.00 and told him, “God bless you!”

I prayed for this man and for God to give him safe traveling mercies on the Marta bus. After I got off of the Marta bus, I went to work.

This story that I just shared with you, dear reader, is an example of the goodness of God and how much He loves you. He loves me. He loves us, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

I presently reflect on the goodness of Jesus Christ in the present. God is good, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

God loves you. Always has and always will. He will always love You, dear reader. Nothing can separate you from the Father’s love. You cannot escape it. 

~”And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow–not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.”~Romans 8:38, New Living Translation~

The love of God is so great because Jesus is constantly pursuing us. The cross gives us, dear readers, a reason to be thankful and to rejoice in the Lord in every season! God is sooo good! Keep pressing on and don’t give up. God has great plans for your future, dear reader. He loves you very much! 🙂

~”I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 3:14, New International Version~

Let us pray, dear reader. 🙂

Dear God,

Thank You for the readers, who are reading this blog post. Thank You for Your goodness in the lives of every reader. Continue to show every reader who You are and the God that You are, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Show readers what the love of Jesus Christ is so that they can taste it, see it, and know it in every season of their lives. May each reader know that Your love is great because of what Jesus did for the world on the cross. May the resurrection of Your Son be enough for every reader to know who Jesus is, as Savior of the World. May my testimony draw each reader into Your great love today. Thank you Jesus! I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise. 

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

God bless you!

 

 

 

Speak Lovely Things, in the Name of Jesus Christ

You are beautiful, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Reader: You might second-guess yourself and wonder if you have a place in this world. You may question if you should love yourself in the image that God made you. You might even wonder if God loves you.

The Holy Spirit of God has the power to convict yourself of the Truth that is found in the Scriptures of God. The Truth of God brings revelation to who you are, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

~”When I called, you answered me: you greatly emboldened me.”~Psalm 138:3, NIV~

You are special, in the eyes of the Living God. Jesus, the begotten Son of God, died for you, dear reader. Speak and declare this Truth as You uplift yourself with the Truth and nothing but the Truth, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

The Truth of God can set you free from yourself. The Truth of God can raise you up. The Truth of God delivers you from sin. You are no longer a slave. You are a child of Jehovah, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus loves you dear reader. Very much. So much, that He also rose from the grave and went to Heaven for you. His eyes are watching over you as His Holy Spirit falls afresh on you.

Open up your eyes and gaze into Heaven. Listen because the Truth of God will bring understanding, wisdom, and unlock the Truth of who you are, as a child of God, in Jesus’ Name.

~”Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit, to him, and he will make your paths straight.”~Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV~

Your identity is in Jesus Christ, dear reader. This brings forth peace that is found in the streams of the Living God. Just lie by those river streams and rest in Him. It is well with your soul, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Rest quietly in the arms of Jesus. Let him rock you softly and quietly as He shows you who you are in Him.

In Him, you are beautiful. In Him, you are not a spirit of fear. In Him, you are precious. In Him, you are the apple of His eye. 🙂

~”Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.”~Psalm 17:8, NIV~

Rest in the arms of Jesus and remember this (even as you pray). Remember that you are loved. Remember that Jesus sees you as you close your eyes and remember Him. Just meditate on the Word of the Living God. Trust in God, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Even as you dream give the Holy Spirit of God permission to enter into you (your heart, your mind, and your soul), as He speaks to you of your identity in Jesus Christ.

Let God lead you as you dream. Let His Holy Spirit give you eyes to gaze into the prophetic and to bring healing to yourself. Let His Holy Spirit touch you tonight. 🙂

~” In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.”~Psalm 4:8, NIV~

~”For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”~Psalm 30:5, NLT~

Wake up and be joyful. Stay joyful for God and the multitudes, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Go and make a joyful noise to His people today. May they listen and heed Your Word as He gives you courage, love, and a sound mind to speak lovely things, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Think about who you are in Jesus Christ. And Remember that. 🙂 Jesus lives forever in You. He shed His blood for you. He died for you. He rose for you. He is watching over you. You are special, dear reader. 

God is good. He reigns forever. Forever, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Now Let us pray. 🙂

Dear God,

Thank You for Jesus. Thank You that Jesus loves each and every reader and considers him or her a lovely creation in Your eyes. Encourage the readers of this blog post to meditate on what Your Word says about who Jesus is. Encourage readers to go forth, multiply, and share the identity of Christ Jesus locally and across the globe. Gently and Boldly take away any false beliefs and lies that the enemy wants each reader to believe of himself or herself. Do not let Your Word return void of the plans that you have for each reader today. May each reader go forward in boldness and gently reflect on the goodness of what Your Holy Spirit is doing now and what Your Holy Spirit has done all of these years. You Know the plans You have to bring tidings of joy to each reader today. May each reader go forth in victory today and walk in Your peace today. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

God bless you! Remember that You are loved. Walk in His agape love.

 

I am Victory (Always), in the Name of Jesus Christ

I am not defeat, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

For readers of this blog post, you may be wondering why I tell myself this: it is because of the victory I have that is found by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection.

There is power in the cross, in the Name of Jesus Christ

The timing of God is everything, especially in me knowing that I am a child of the Most High God. For this reason, I am joyful, in the Name of Jesus Christ, because of the power that is in the blood of Jesus. I am covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, in His precious and Holy Name. And it is for this reason that I will walk in victory. I walk in victory, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11, ESV)~

I am a person, but I am not my past self. I am not my past sins because of the victory that I have in Jesus Christ. I am a constant work in progress, in the Name of Jesus Christ. A good friend told me that God has really grown and stretched me over the years. 🙂 I believe my friend and thank her for the encouragement. It is up until this point that God really grew me and I thank God that His Holy Spirit is my Helper. The Holy Spirit of God is my Teacher, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

I look forward and not backward as the Holy Spirit continues to grow me. My identity is not in the opinions of other people or the lies of the enemy, but in the Word of God because it is the Truth. I know who I am as a child of the King. The Word of God is power, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”~Hebrews 4:12, NIV~

No person will tell me who I am and confuse my identity in Jesus Christ with the identity of the world. No person will cause me to even consider or to even question that I am not a follower of Jesus Christ. I know God. I know Jesus Christ. And I know His Holy Spirit. I testify, by faith and not by sight, of the power that is in the blood of Jesus Christ and in the Word of God that I am a child of the King. I testify the love of God to you and the rest of creation, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For we walk by faith, not by sight.”~2 Corinthians 5:7, ESV~

Even if people do not see me as a work in progress, for the valleys I have walked through, the mountaintops that I have climbed, or for the victory that God has given me, I know who I am as a child of God. I tell myself this everyday because of the victory that I have from the blood shed by Jesus Christ on His cross.

I take up my cross daily for this reason. The life of Jesus Christ shows me who God is because of the life that Jesus led on earth. The cross and the shed blood of Jesus Christ is proof that I am not my past sins. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is living proof that I am alive because Jesus is alive. It is well with my soul, in the victory of Jesus Christ.

I have the peace of God, knowing that God has forgiven me of my past sins. I rest in His open arms and in the Truth of Jesus Christ daily. His Word gives me blessed assurance that I am not alone in this battle that I fight.

Now you may be wondering, what is this battle that I fight? It is a war against depression and other lies that the enemy wants me to believe about myself. The Holy Spirit of God is testing me and refining me so that I live out and practice the Word of God that is in Jesus Christ everyday.

~”Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.”~Song of Songs 2:15, NIV~

I am not depression. It is believable if I choose to believe it. I refuse to believe that I am depression, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I WILL NOT tell myself that. I will not believe the lies of depression or the enemy. I am victory in the power of the words that I speak into my life that fill me with the life of Jesus Christ and the Truth of the Word of God.

~”Your throne was established long ago: you are from all eternity.”~Psalm 93:2, NIV~

I rebuke the lies of depression and speak the Truth of God that is found in Jesus Christ. I declare these Truths of the Word of God that I speak over my life. There is power in me when I speak the Truth of Jesus Christ over me:

36129577_1896366573739439_725831855068151808_n
I speak the life of God into my Life, in the Name of Jesus Christ

I speak life. I speak the life of Jesus Christ into my life. I unlock the gates of the Heaven of God into my life and bind every power of hell and the devil from my life, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I am not defeat. I am victory, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I know that I have already overcome the world, in the Name of Jesus Christ because of the victory that I have in Him. I walk in victory now, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 🙂

~”All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.”~1 John 3:3, NIV~

Now, I want to pray for you, dear reader, if you are struggling in walking in the victory of Jesus Christ today. Let us pray. 🙂 :

Dear God,

Thank You for victory. Thank You for the forgiveness of sins that is found on the cross of Calvary and the death and resurrection of Your Son. May every reader believe in himself or herself that there is power in speaking Scripture and the name of Jesus Christ over their lives. May each reader know that they can walk forgiven and free if they believe in Your Word and speak it over their lives everyday. May the Word of Jesus Christ breathe Your Holy Spirit and speak life over every reader, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I rebuke the lies of the enemy from every reader so that they may walk in the Truth of Jesus Christ daily. May they walk in victory daily, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

Thank you for reading this blog post, dear reader. God bless you! ❤

My Identity, in the Name of Jesus Christ
