OUR MARCH NEWSLETTER MESSAGE:
My mom was the one who told me the story and it was so embarrassing. Our hearts ached for this young girl. My mom was at a "family-style" bingo event and there was a young African American girl who had been very kind to my mother. She was calling out the bingo numbers one-by-one. Out of the blue, instead of someone saying jubilantly, "Bingo!" a man yelled across the room, "Obama!" The girl stopped suddenly, caught off guard. She hesitated briefly as there were a few disgruntled sighs and boos in the crowd as people expressed their distaste over the man's comment. The girl went on the spin the bowl full of numbers and the man yelled again, "Obama!" She sucked in a deep breath and said, "If you have bingo, please say bingo." Eventually the man stopped his hateful remarks as more people just booed at him, but for the girl it was embarrassing. My mother hugged her after the game and told her how proud she was of the girl that she didn't react to the man's obvious ignorance.
Maybe he was drunk, maybe he was just full of hate, but he wanted a reaction and she didn't give it. We prayed for that girl to be strong in the Lord and the power of God's might and I wondered how many times had that young girl been attacked that way. How many times are we attacked when we have to be strong and be silent and represent Christ? More often than not, it's not the attack that bothers us, but the constant attacks from the devil as he at times pounds relentlessly trying to get us to just give up and die. But we're not giving up. We're not fading away. We're not committing suicide and giving up our posts. We are standing firm. We are encouraging one another because if God be for us it doesn't matter who is against us. The real issue is how to encourage yourself when you're going through those fiery trials and being taunted, tested, and you feel like you're being ripped apart. Here's how...
You walk away and you stay in love. You speak over yourself and encourage yourself in the Lord.
You've likely seen it on the news. At Jewish cemetaries, headstones have been toppled, people are spewing messages of hate, swastikas are everywhere, Spanish families are being ripped apart as parents are rounded up by ICE. Muslims are being attacked. We need a miracle. Our nation is divided and it looks like thousands of mini wars are breaking out - race wars, religious wars, territorial wars, etc., but here's the key. As Christians grow stronger in the Lord and draw closer to Him, as we fight to unite and bring God back into churches, schools and government, the devil is mad. He wants the house to stay divided in more ways than one! As Christians, we can't relent, but we must stand firm, walk in love and forgiveness, find refreshing, and stand on God's Word and the power of His might, which brings me to our message, "Rejuvenate Me."
Isaiah 61 reads: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed. I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Our most important message ever...
Last year I wrote about what I was going through with a relative attacking me with words, accusations, and so forth and now I'm seeing how it has come to pass where people need encouragement because they are going through the same thing - being attacked for no reason. Remember, the devil is the accuser of the brethern.
I believe this year we're going to see something very different that will work in our favor. This is the Year of Jubilee. At the end of last year, I was hit with a HUGE test where God asked me to bless someone that didn't like me with whatever they asked for. I gave and gave and gave, being obedient to God, sowing so I could reap a sweet harvest despite how I was being attacked - I knew if God asked me to give, then it was a test and I so earnestly wanted to pass it. Then the person betrayed me outright and blatantly, but here's the crucial part.
In the midst of feeling that betrayal which I'm certain was part of the test, despite the tears, pain, and heartache, I sowed the biggest seed I could asking God to help make the way for us - trying to think like Jesus, here - - and then I had the biggest revelation and several prophetic messages from different people that this year would be very big! So that was the Word I received which usually precedes a test, but for this year it's a blessing - and this is where you should pay the most attention:
If God puts something in front of you that is so BIG that you think you CANNOT do it, DO NOT GIVE UP. God sends very big blessings that are bigger than us. I was given the biggest blessing that broke all my nets! This happened once when God gave me a huge promotion to run an entire office when I didn't even have the experience to do the job, but when God gives it, the way is already made. Remember the verse, Your gifts will make room for you.
When God puts it in your hands or points in that direction and says that it's yours, it might not look easy, but don't give up, don't say no, and don't think that it's not yours. Where the voice or finger of God guides, His hand will provide. Ask God for help. Ask Him for more time. Ask for wisdom, guidance and direction. He is sending VERY BIG BLESSINGS this year, bu it might not look like something you can manage. It might look too big for you. It is yours, you can do this, and you will receive exceedingly and abundantly all that you ask. Ask God to make the way. Ask and it shall be yours! Keep that in your heart this year...
This is just a test...
God wants us in perfect peace, despite what's going on around us. It's a sign of the end times. That being said, we need refreshing during these fiery trials. We need that bit of bread to sustain us when we start to feel like its too much. If you feel like you are going through the BIGGEST TRIAL EVER, wait on God because that means the biggest blessing is close.
My mom saw in the prophetic women giving birth all over the world. They're birthing new dreams, new businesses, and new ministries. They're not giving up, but they're digging in deeper, so just like that girl that had to ignore the man's ignorant comments, keep moving forward, keep growing in God, keep praising the Lord, keep praying for, with, and over others, and let God bring the refreshing.
1. We've included a few healing messages in our link, Need a Word, to help for those times when you feel so worn out.
2. We've included a ministry page on our site with sermons from TD Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen and others when you need a Word!
3. We've even added an LOL page of fun clips, memes, scriptures, and inspiring messages to give you a good laugh and uplift you when you need it. Laughter doeth good like a medicine.
Stay encouraged, stand firm, and wait on God. He is about to do something really awesome for His people. It's going to be big and probably bigger than you ever imagined! He's preparing a table for you. Don't give up and don't miss the next mighty move from God! It's going to be big!
And lastly: DON'T GIVE UP!
Our March Prayer
Father God, in the name of Jesus, Lord we humble ourselves before you and ask forgiveness of all our sins that our prayers might be heard. Please separate sin from us as far as the east is from the west and let no sin rule over us. We boldly go the throne of grace to let our requests be made known unto you. Father God, we thank you for your grace, covering, shelter, and your hand upon our lives. We thank you for keeping us safe and always making the way for us. We know that you are birthing new visions and helping with new ministries and new businesses and in any area of our lives where you are starting something new or leading us into a new direction, please give us help, signs, and strength - and for whoever needs it, we pray for healing for the kidneys and healing from dialysis, for whoever that is for...
Please send refreshing as your Word says that when we humble ourselves, you shall lift us up. Please send refreshing oil and show us where to lower our nets that we might receive all that Jesus has for us and not just for us but for those that you put in our path that we may be a blessing to others. We praise you for the refreshing. We thank you for the renewal and the revival and fresh wind and revelation that's coming. Thank you, Father God for strengthening your people and helping us to move forward in you and be the vessels you have chosen for your purpose and for such a time as this.
We also pray for all those families around the world that need help. We pray for Somalia where there is severe drought, death, and famine. We pray for Mexico, areas in Europe, the Middle East, and all over the world where families are being ripped apart. We pray for healing, for these families to stay together, to be reunited, and to not live in fear. We know that Jesus came to share your love Lord and we pray that as we build our businesses and ministries that we may be lights shining for you - and not ourselves, to share your good news because perfect love casts out all fear! We know you will make the way! We are confident in you!
Father God, in the name of Jesus, we pray for humble hearts as we enter into the Lent season and we ask you to please help us to prepare our hearts, minds, and spirits for Passover and Pentecost. Please remove any unforgiveness, bitterness, anger or stumbling blocks as we draw closer to you. We praise you and we give you all the glory, honor, and praise due your name. For it is written, No weapons formed against thee shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. Guard our tongue Lord and help us to stay in the spirit and not war in the flesh. No harm shall come near our dwelling place and no evil shall befall us. We are not breaking down. We are breaking through because you are God of your promises and you keep every Word! Have mercy on us, Lord. We have the victory and the devil is defeated, in Jesus's name, amen! Rejuvenate us, Lord!
The Prayer of Salvation
If you haven't said the Prayer of Salvation, now's the perfect time: Father God in the name of Jesus, Lord, I ask forgiveness of my sins. Please come into my heart. I turn my back on sin and I make you my Lord and Savior. I want to follow you for the rest of my life. Please give me eternal life through you in Jesus name, amen.
Re-dedication to Christ Prayer
If you need to rededicate your life to Christ because you feel like you've been sinning or haven't been living right, pray: Father God in the name of Jesus, I ask forgiveness of my sins and I turn my back on sin. Please help me to overcome ---- and I want to lead a better life through you. I decree and declare this day I have overcome ---- and I have the victory in Jesus name, amen.
Stay in God's shadow, stay away from sin and temptation, keep reading your Bible and keep seeking God first.
