You Can Do Anything, When You Have No Fear…

June 25, 2014

I think someone needed to hear that today…  Perhaps you are embarking on something you’ve never done before. Perhaps you have wanted to do something, but every time you think about it, it just seems too hard. But the truth is… with God all things are possible. What is that really saying? When you trust God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, which includes being made perfect in love without any fear, then anything is possible!

We are planning a women’s conference for this coming October in the Placerville CA area. It’s something I’ve not done at this scale before, though I’ve been doing conferences for 20 years! We are having several speakers, awesome worship team, as we address the issues of the day….  We are planning for a large number to come, but then I began to “fear” the what it’s.  What if we don’t have enough people coming? What if we don’t get enough funds? What if we don’t find a venue to hold it? These are hindrances, blocks, or barriers…  But if we don’t fear… there are NO blocks or barriers. So with you as my witness… I will not fear failure, success, funds, or people. We are moving ahead… and the most amazing things are happening. People are falling out of the woodwork to help!!!

So, think about it today. What are you fearing today? Because everything is possible with God. I remember when I came into this revelation I heard the Lord say, “God makes the impossible possible when we don’t have any fear about it.”

This also impacts your health. Let’s say you have a health symptom. What is the first thing you do? FEAR it… Today, let’s know that we can face any health issues ahead of us WITHOUT FEAR! We can do it… if we have no fear. Because truthfully, fear adds to the problem!!  See, if we continue down the fearful path, it goes from being uncomfortable to tormenting, and then from tormenting to dis-ease! We are the ones that have the ability to stop that from spiraling down the wrong pathway!

It’s up to us to choose the right pathway. What does the Word say? I have set before you life and death?? Choose life!

And the side effect to all this fearlessness is Hope! As I was finishing up this blog, I was feeling more hopeful! I saw so many awesome things ahead. I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. Hope is amazing! I hope for you today!

When we Step Out Ahead of God….

June 18, 2014

My husband and I were talking about things in our life. As we’ve been planning trips to conduct conferences, making plans, Tom said, “If you step out ahead of God He can’t protect you.” 

As I thought on that, it is very true. We are to remain UNDER the shadow of His wings. In the secret place of the Most High God. Under His covering, but if we run out from under that into doing our own thing… His protection may not be there. Of course, we know God is with us wherever we go, but we are dragging Him behind us and may not protect us as much as we would like. He is with us IN our decisions, but wouldn’t it be nice to just simply remain under his care and covering and live there? What protection and peace is there.

When is God Going to Answer My Prayer?

June 1, 2014

My husband spent some time with the Lord while I was away at a women’s event. He said that the Lord was showing him that many people are asking God for things, but they are things they can do themselves! People want to quit smoking, and asking God to do it, but is’ up to them to do it. With God’s help of course. Or people are wanting a job, but it’s up to them to go find one, God working with them of course. Because God said, “I will HELP you…”  I will be WITH You wherever you Go.”  So we need to be doing something for God to help us with.

God wants to be a part of every aspect of your life, even the things you can do yourself. He said to “acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will direct our paths.” So we need to start doing the things we can do, and leave the rest to God of things we can’t do. I think that serenity prayer is worth repeating here:  “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, change what I can and wisdom to know the difference.”
