MORNING WORD

November 10, 2017

“Don’t be afraid to allow God to turn up the heat in your life to bring about the change He needs to move you forward into His plan for you.  Stay at His feet, embrace the heat, and let Him have His way. His ways are always for our benefit and He loves for us to grow and not stagnate. You have a destiny.”

HEAVEN’S KISS – Poetry

November 2, 2017

Across the starry night He calls
Laying out myriads of bright glowing balls
Singing His story the birds make their way
Flying in glory if only to say

Hello I love you
Can you hear Me call
I made all this for you
I gave you My all

Fields of bright flowers colored array
Bright sunshine’s dew drop painting the day
Smells so desirous catching your breath
Hoping you’ll look up and know I’ve not left

Cuddly fur balls of all different size
For you to enjoy and to tickle your eyes
Loving affection creation does show
I so want to show you all I do know

Hello I love you
Can you hear Me call
I made all this for you
I gave you My all

Saving the best, I sent you My Son
To show you my heartbeat, He and I are One
Was hoping you’d accept Him there’s no other way
I made Him the door so you could come to Me and stay

Hello I love you
Won’t you walk through the door
Jesus is waiting
And there’s so much more.

John 6:37-38
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.  For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

HOPE – Poetry

October 31, 2017

Hope, hope
What lies in that name
There’s something so powerful
It crushes souls pain

Hope, hope
It reaches beyond
This time that we live in
Makes our emotions respond

Hope, hope
A much better place
See into tomorrow
With faith of beauties grace

Hope, hope
Pulls us out of despair
Knowing our reality
Will change and take us there

Hope, hope
Food for our soul
Sets us free from what is now
A promise to make us whole

THE INVITATION – Poetry

October 30, 2017

The world is spinning round and round
What are we to do?
Grab hold tight to Jesus Christ
And He will see you through

Yes, the world will mock you
Who really cares about that?
One day they will see and know
That you knew where it’s at

Burrow deep into His chest
In His word please feast
He is the Bread that gives us life
And you He will receive

He can’t wait to see you
When you come to Him
He longs for you like groom and bride
The veil is getting thin

Open up your heart to Him
He’s knocking at the door
He often knocks so gently
Try not to ignore

Let nothing come between you
Our sin He’ll wash away
As we bow in honesty
Forgiveness ask and pray

He has so much to give you
Secrets to reveal
His kingdom is so vast and wide
Delightful it will feel

Don’t have to wait for heaven
To know Him intimately
Do it here and now my friend
His joy you soon will see

Love and peace and goodness
Regardless of the mess
That here on earth surrounds us
He lifts us up to bless

In His Presence is fullness of joy
But you must seek and find
The King with joy awaits you
What He wants from you is time

I promise He has treasures
Adventures beyond belief
If you choose to walk with Him
He’ll make your eyes to see

Matthew 7:8
For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

There is a place called refuge
Not in this earthly realm
It is a place that we can dwell
With Jesus at the helm

Within that walk of confidence
We can walk away
From all the voices on the earth
That catch our breath away

So many things distract us
They are the enemy
But there is a Source that gives us life
Lord, open our eyes to see

What are you being robbed of?
Our Lord, His heart does bleed
He sees your woundedness child
And you He wants to be…

Safely in His sheepfold
Where He can keep you warm
Holding you close to His chest
Keeping you from harm

Why is it we can’t see Him
Think that He doesn’t care
We’ve bought the lies about Him
Think that He’s really not there

Now you don’t need a building
Or a pew to kneel down there
There is an alter in your heart
And He will meet you there

Don’t you know He’s waiting
He wants to draw you in
To that place of loving
Forgiving all your sin

He promises to cleanse you
Your past to throw away
You simply need to trust Him
And talk to Him today

LONGING – Poetry

October 26, 2017

I’m longing for that intimate place
In the land of shallow souls
Seems no one wants to seek Your face
Or the words from days of old

So few want the treasures there
Just live from day to day
Avoiding anything with depth
Deaf to what you say

I’m longing for that intimate place
Sweetest place I know
No one else can fill that gap
From You all love can flow

I’m longing for that intimate place
I lift my eyes to You
Enraptured by Your glorious face
Until this life is through

copyright Jean Chamblee 2011

 

[Verse 1]
People hurting, people broken
Beaten down and feeling hopeless
Wonder if it’s gonna always be this way
Who will speak up for the captive
Show some love and heal a past that
Binds the wounds we think will never go away

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But what if we could be a people on our knees
As one before the King
‘Cause we believe

[Chorus 1]
All the world starts changing
When the church starts praying
Strongholds start to break
Oh, when we pray
Prison walls start shaking
At the sound of praising
Nothing stays the same
Oh, when we pray
Oh, when we pray, oh

[Verse 2]
I see revival rising
I see hope on the horizon
As a generation stepping out in faith

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Because we will be a people on our knees
As one before the King
Yeah we believe

[Chorus 1]
All the world starts changing
When the church starts praying
Strongholds start to break
Oh, when we pray
Prison walls start shaking
At the sound of praising
Nothing stays the same
Oh, when we pray
Oh, when we pray, oh

[Bridge]
Let Your kingdom come, Lord
Let Your will be done

[Chorus 2]
All the world starts changing
When the church starts praying
Strongholds start to break
Oh, when we pray
All the world starts changing
When the church starts praying
Strongholds start to break
Oh, when we pray
Prison walls start shaking
At the sound of praising
Nothing stays the same
Oh, when we pray, oh
When we pray, oh

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

October 3, 2017

A CALL TO ARMS

As I lay in bed early this morning and listened to the school bus go down the street in the pre-dawn hours, picking up neighborhood children……I thought about them, and about the events of yesterdays shooting in Las Vegas.

I thought about the following scripture and was stirred in my heart:

Ephesians 6:10-13 “ Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.’

We live in a dark world. There is a battle going on that life tries to blind us to until something happens that jerks us back into “Kingdom realities”. We are called to fight. We have an enemy – a cruel one. (John 10:10 “. “ The thief (satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” His whole purpose against humanity is destruction.

God has given us tools to battle with. Through the redemptive work of Christ, His truth and His Spirit – we can be victorious – though the battles can be fierce. (2 Corinthians 2:14
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ…)

The enemy constantly tries to lull us to sleep to these truths. Because he knows if we awaken to truth and our God given authority to pray in Jesus name….that he’s gonna lose ground and be defeated. I think he still believes he can win against Christ and judgement day will never come.

I was pricked in my heart about these kids and how that since my children are now grown…..I seldom think to pray for the schools and for protection and revival to break out there like I used to. God forgive me! And all of us, as we have not taken our place in praying for our neighborhoods, families, cities, states, and nations. At least not to the level that God desires from His sons and daughters. Wickedness has flourished in our nation and we have not battled it out enough in the spirit realm with the name of Jesus on our lips. He has given us authority to pray in His name and that is a powerful thing.

As I prayed this morning I felt to say it out loud. IT’S A CALL TO ARMS. I pray this will inspire you to join me in “doubling down” on our prayers for our fellow Americans and be aware of all the other assignments the Lord may lay on our hearts.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds…”

Cry out to God in prayer. Pray in Jesus name. Let this take priority over lesser things. This is a true war. Mark 4:23 “ If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”

End Time Prophesy

Honestly folks…..we don’t know how much time we have.  We DO know that the Bible tells us that an hour will come when no man can work.   So we need to be about the business of leading people to Christ……getting people born again into God’s kingdom.  Fulfilling the great commission.   I’ve done a teaching below that makes sharing Christ simple, fun, and relational with Jesus.  It’s awesome to bring someone closer to God.  This is a “user friendly” teaching with lots of real life examples.   Enjoy and become  “fishers of men”
