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.”

So I truly believe that God is extending our time and giving us a reprieve.  As I stated before that God had given me a vision a few weeks ago of Jesus crying out to Our Father to extend the time for the millennials sake….for them to come in and live their destinies.  I don’t know what that means in years…..but in purpose and meaning it runs deep and can be a moment in time.   We love you and are praying for you and cheering your generation on!!!  With all my heart….I pray you find out from your Creator what you are here for…..you are unique…..you are one of a kind…..and Our Father has enough love for us all!!  Run your race…..this boomer is behind you!!!

I hope you will take a few minutes…..turn this up loud and get lost in the presence of Jesus…..there you will find your answers!!

A BRAND NEW DAY

November 9, 2016

Thank you Lord for another day!

Our Job Has Just Begun….May We Never Disengage From Our Prayers For This Nation Again…..May We Never Stop Heartfelt DAILY Prayers For This Government And Nation!!! May We Never Step Back From Our Involvement In Our Countries Affairs. It Matters!

1 Timothy ” Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,”

I pray that many good people will rise up and get involved in politics, civic activities, school boards, academia, arts and film….  on and on.  A Christian’s place is not just in the 4 walls of a church….we need to be in places of influence…..forces for good!    God bless you and God bless America!

CHAOS AND GLORY – Poetry

October 27, 2016

Waiting in the wings
Are such glorious things
For those that love the Lord

You’ve been through the trials
And cried for a while
But the truth is you’ve sharpened your sword

Handcrafted we are
And shine like a star
The more we yeild to Him

We’re safe in His hands
In His master plan
Though it looks like we’re out on a limb

Though chaos may come
He sits on His throne
In His secret place we may dwell

As we draw close to Him
Get ready to swim
We can know that all will be well

LAST CALL – POETRY

October 27, 2016

Oh how this world
Has turned against God
They trample Him down
Underfoot they have trod

They mock His commandments
They spit in His face
Not only this country
But the whole human race

The hand that has made them
Has brought them so far
But they trade Him for gold things
For houses and cars

They hate His commandments
Set out to remove
Any rule of law
All justice they eschew

How long
Will His patient endurance remain?
How is it we don’t know
We can’t trample on His name?

Judgement and justice
Have not passed away
Consequences for sin
Are intact for this day

His grace won’t erase
For an unrepentant heart
Only those that are sorry
Turn from sin, from it depart

We can’t have it our own way
The Universe is His
We are His creation
We were born into this

He has made it so easy
His grace to receive
Paradise awaits us
For those who believe

Jesus paid the price
And a high price it was
To hang on a cross
For something He’s not done

Each has a choice
On which to be
He will separate the goats
From the sheep, all will see

Actions speak loudly
You cannot deceive
You may lie to the world
But with God it won’t be

Two thousand years
Is a long time for grace
Time to get ready
We will soon see His face

To the obedient such joy
To the rebellious such pain
The choice is your own
Which camp you’ll remain

One to damnation
There is eternal fire
The other to paradise
With a heavenly choir

Not playing games
So serious this is
He wants you to choose
To believe and be His

This may just be
Your last night on earth
Only God knows
Your death and your birth

Because it’s a choice
It’s all I can do
To sound this hard warning
And hope you will choose

Life without ending
In heavenly bliss
With great loving care
I hope you won’t miss

Can’t do it for you
It’s your soul to keep
But know that right now
For you we do weep

God truly loves you
Only believe
Reconnect with Him
Your soul He’ll receive

DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH

October 24, 2016

Below is a song I wrote a decade ago, but seems so important at this critical time in our history. Enjoy! ( song can be found at cdbaby.com/cd/chamblee2) praying for revival!!!

DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FEAR OF GOD
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FRIGHT
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HOLINESS
THAT USED TO BE SO RIGHT

HAS JEHOVAH CHANGED THAT MUCH
IS HE A DIFFERENT GOD?
WAS HE A CHAMELEON?
OR A TEMPORARY FACADE?

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

WHERE IS THE RIGHT AND WRONG?
GOT SWALLOWED IN THE HOLE
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
SEEMS TO BE THE WORLDLY MOLD
ARE WE NOT THE CHURCH OF GOD
AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST?
MADE TO REPRESENT OUR LORD
AND LIVE OUT LOUD HIS LIFE

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US NOW?
MY HEART IS TORN IN TWO
SO CALLED GOSPEL PREACHED TODAY
IS FAR FROM BEING TRUE

JESUS THE MESSIAH KING
BRIGHT AND SHINING STAR
WORTHY OF OUR RESPECT
HOW DID WE FALL SO FAR?

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)

BRING US LORD TO OUR KNEES
IN THIS OUR ONLY HOPE
REPENTANCE FROM OUR WORTHLESS DEEDS
RETURNING TO THE HEART

DID WE THINK THAT HE WON’T SEE?
THAT WE COULD HIDE OUR LIFE
DID WE THINK HE IS DECEIVED?
OUR DIETY OF LIGHT

DON’T MESS DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH
DON’T MESS WITH JEHOVAH (CHORUS)
