My Savior Can

"My Savior can move mountains, My Savior is mighty to save..." What mountains can God move? What does He save us from? These are great words to sing and praise God with, but do we really believe it?? It seems to me that we have faith that God can save us from our sins..that Jesus died and rose again for our sins...we can believe that he saves us from our dead state of being sinners, but yet we don't seem to believe He does much more for us! Did Jesus die so we could be born into new life to live in sickness and pain, full of sorrow...NO!! He died that we might have abundant life. Isaiah 53:4-5 says that He took up our infirmities, He was crushed for our iniquities and by His stripes we are healed. This was an Old Testament foreshadow of Christ! He died so we could live, so we could be made whole...physically and spiritually!! If Jesus can save us from our sins, surely He can deliver us from our diseases as well!

Do we really believe that God can save us?? That He can move mountains?? Or are we trying to save ourselves by what we do, by religious works and performance...and if we believe He can save us from our sin, then why is it so hard to believe that He can heal our diseases???

I don't know about anyone else...But my God is able to move mountains and He is mighty to save!! I know my God can heal and deliver us! He is a BIG GOD and He is a powerful God...

What Is Our Faith In?

Okay, I know this may offend some and some may feel that I am off base, but I have to put this out there. God has really been dealing with me lately about what I trust...Where my faith is at. I grew up traditional, mainstream church, learning all the doctrine and Bible verses to back it up. As an adult, I began to discover things in the Bible that didn't fit in my doctrine and when I questioned it was told that isn't for today...

For a long time I bought that, then I began to really question and challenge and that is in part where I am again today...I am tired of my God being watered down and put in a box that says He can do this, but not this anymore. Don't we beleive that His Word is the infalliable, inerrent Word...cover to cover...this is what we teach. In His Word we are told "Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever." (Heb. 13:8) If He is the same today as He was 2000 years ago, then why don't we see Him move today like then?? Signs and wonders, healings and deliverance marked Jesus ministry and He sent us into the world to preach the good news to all creation, baptizing in His name and said that these signs would follow us. (Mark 16:15-18) I have heard that this stuff went out with the original apostles, but I have never seen this stated in God's Word. If Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, then it stands to reason His Word is and His power is. He told the disiples they could do whatever in His name...i am His disciple..all beleivers are, therefore we have the authority and power to operate in a realm we don't even seem to know is there...We want to lead people to Christ...we live in a day and age where seeing is believing...if all people see is a bunch of sad, defeated 'Christians" walking around, what do we have to offer them?? When people see that God is big and real, when they see Him moving in people's lives and see lives truly changed, then they will believe...In Jesus ministry people followed Him and beleived because of what they saw. Today we seem to put God in a box and say stay there until I need you...we belive what the doctors say, what the media says, we believe what anyone else says as being truth, but the only absolute truth is God's Word and it counters much of what we hear today..

It blows my mind that a doctor can make a diagnosis and then say opps, I made a mistake and we will believe that instead of believing that God could have answered the prayers that were offered to Him and have is easier for us to believe what we see, so if we want to reach the world, we need to find a way to put our faith in a BIG GOD and a POWERFUL GOD so we have something they can see...

I pray that God will continue to draw my faith to Him... I know he is a big God and can do mighty things...I know He heals supernaturally, I know He cast otu demons, I know He is still a miracle working God and he has given us the authority to walk in this realm of the supernatural...I want to walk in all God has for me, even if I don't understand it...

Wanting More

Have you ever just wanted more of God, more time with Him, more of His presence in your life???That is where I am right now! I feel like I am missing something and I want whatever that is. I want God to move in my life in a way I never have is not about wanting the gifts or what He can do for me, but about wanting feel His presence with me as I go through my day. I so want to honor Him in everything I do and I am eliminating many distractions in my life to allow myself more time with Him. It seems like I just can't get enough. I am enjoying a season of learning and seeking after knowledge through teachings and reading and just getting still and listening to God....He has so much that He wants to reveal to us, so much He wants to show us, but all too often we are too busy to hear from Him...I don't want to miss out on what God has for me because I am too busy....I want to just experience a relationship with God that is deeper than I have ever known and that means making Him a priority in my life....that is my goal right now...just to seek ways to spend more time with my Father and listen to all He has to tell me...I want to be used by Him to make an impact on my world, to show my kids that God loves them and desires them....I just want HIM!

Incline your heart to Me and listen to My voice. I want to speak to you and my message is an urgent one. Don't try to follow your own plans, for I have already set in motion my own divine will and purpose for you. I don't want your plans to mess up my plans for you!

I am a jealous God and I am jealous of what you give your time to instead of Me. You are Mine and I don't want you to hinder My plans for you from working out. You may do many things, but only the things I have planned for you will have my blessing on it.

Put is all in My hands---your loved ones as well as yourself! Obey My voice! Your own thoughts may speak louder, but wait on Me always! You will see the wisdom and glory in due time. don't worry about or concern yoruself with worldy things, but focus first and always on spiritual things. My promise is still: "Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you!" (Matt 6:33)

I know what you want in your life, your family, your health and I want to give you only the very me above all else and I will give you the desires of your heart!

Lord, Turn my focus from what this world has to offer me, or sees as worthy of my time, to focus on You and Your plans for me. I want my life to be a reflection of You!

A Call Of Love

My message from God today:

My beloved, stay under My shelter--for I have called You unto Myself and though you are sometimes indifferent toward Me, My love for you is at all times as a flame of fire. My adoration never cools. My longing for your love and affection is deep and constant.

Do not wait for an opportunity to have more time to be alone with Me. Take it, even if it means leaving the task at hand undone. Nothing will suffer. Things are of less importance than you think. Our time together is like a garden full of flowers, on the other hand, the time you give to things is as a field of stubble.

I love you and if you can always, as it were, feel my pulsebeat, you would know many things, the knowledge of which shall give you sustaining strength. I bare your sins and I want to carry your burdens. You have the gift of a light and merry heart. In My love is where you will find it, for My love cast out all fear and is a cure for every ill. Lay your head upon My breast and lose yourself in Me. You will experience ressurection life and peace; the joy of the Lord will be your strength; and wells of salvation will be opened up within you.

My Prayer....Lord teach me to come away with you, to lay aside the little things, to be willing to leave a mess to spend time with You! Be my joy and my strength. Forgive me Father for trying to find the strength for this life apart from You and open my heart and my eyes to Your love for me that I may reflect that love back to You!
