Heart Reflections From His Revelations

Give me a word to sustain the weary…. waken my ear to listen. [Isaiah 50:4]

Wait Til I Come Back

Psalm 126:4-64 So, Lord, bring back the good times, like a desert stream filled again with flowing water. 5 Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, will DOUBTLESS come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

This Word is for those who have been diligently sowing in tears. To sow in tears means you’ve been consistent and persistent in the face of adversity, in the face of frustration, in the face of pain, in the face of no evident harvest.

As you continue to sow in tears…. as you continue to put your best foot forward when you feel your strength is failing; when it seems like life is unraveling; in the face of no evidence…. the Word of God says you will come back again,rejoicing, bringing your SHEAVES (multiple; abundant; overflow; bountiful) with you.

There is an abundant harvest promised and, regardless of how long it’s been, you’re going to reap it in joy!

While You’re Trying To Figure It Out….

Luke 1:30-3330 Then the angel [Gabriel] said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

The story is told in Luke 1:30-33 of Mary’s encounter with the angel Gabriel. While typically preached at Christmas time, the revelation in this passage is applicable to our everyday walk with the Lord.

Having heard Gabriel’s powerful prophecy, Mary responded with– “…How can this be, since I do not know a man?” It didn’t make sense to Mary. She didn’t see HOW it could happen because of what she was lacking in her life. She didn’t feel qualified or that she met the prerequisites for the fulfillment of God’s promise.

Mary was trying to figure it out, when God had already worked it out. And that’s where many of us find ourselves consistently in our relationship with God. But, listen to this Midnight Cry Prayer Call teaching and open up your heart to respond in faith, “Lord, be it unto me according to Thy Word!”

Ephesians 6:10-1810 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 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. 13 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. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.

I’ve been thinking about the armor of God and the thought that came to mind was: You can tell what piece of the armor you’re missing by where you’re constantly being wounded.

The Bible says put on the WHOLE armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles (tricks & schemes) of the devil. That tells me that without the WHOLE armor of God you can’t stand. Covering just your head or our feet won’t secure you.

So I wanted us to take a closer look at what areas may be exposed in our lives… what pieces of armor are missing as we engage in day to day spiritual warfare.

Job 2:1There was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

Whenever we reflect on the story of Job we often focus on how God gave the enemy permission to test Job. It was a hard test in which Job lost everything, but in the end he was restored double-fold by God. 

I want to look at a different aspect of the story of Job today based on Job 2:1 mentioned above. 

Nowhere in the scripture does it say that God requested satan’s presence at this “Gathering of the sons of God” on either of the two occasions (Job 1:6; Job 2:1). The Word simply tells us that, “satan came also to present himself before the Lord” when the sons of God assembled together. Why would he present himself at a meeting for SONS when he knows he’s not a son of God?

What God revealed to me is that satan is really after “sonship“…. he’s really after our relationship with God.

Listen to last night’s recording of the Midnight Cry Prayer Call where we delved deeper into this revelation of Sonship. We have to be very diligent and vigilant in guarding our relationship with God. Your intimacy with God offends the enemy and that’s the target of his most vicious attacks!



Jabez’ Cry 

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 NKJV 9 Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested

Most of us have read what has commonly been referred to as “The Prayer of Jabez” found in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. Often when we recite this prayer we focus on what Jabez asked God for. Rarely do we focus on why he asked God for these things. Jabez’ whole life was associated with his painful birth and not the actual life of honor he lived. He was so impacted by the NAME he was given that his cry to God was simply: “Lord, cause my life to not reflect my name.”

Many have lived with a name, title, or label that people have given you based on your past, based on a mistake you’ve made, or based on something that happened to you… “ex-convict”, “divorcee”, “widow”, “barren” etc… And even though you’ve accomplished a lot in life and have tried to move beyond what you’ve been labeled or called, it still haunts you.

People may have spoken false destinies and even word curses over you because of decisions or mistakes you’ve made, or things that have happened to you. For some, it may have been out of pure jealousy and not anything that you did. But God is able to change that and to cause none of it to manifest! The Bible says God honored Jabez’ request to not live out the meaning of his name.

Just Because He’s God

In this season God is calling us deeper in our level of faith, trust, and confidence in Him. For far too long we have only trusted Him for what we expect Him to do for us. But it’s time now for us to trust Him simply because He’s God

When your trust is in Him period, even if He doesn’t work the situation out in a favorable way, your faith isn’t shaken because you trusted HIM not the OUTCOME. We can’t manipulate or control God by our faith. We have to let Him be God. He knows what’s best for us, even when it hurts, and even when we don’t understand. 

If God doesn’t answer one more prayer request, would you still serve Him? Would you still trust Him? Would you still acknowledge that He is God?

Listen to tonight’s recording of the Midnight Cry prayer call.. “Just Because He’s God!




Proverbs 4:25 reads, let your eyes look straight ahead and your eyelids look right before you

Matthew 6:22-23 –  22 The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

We started off this year teaching on the importance of FIXING our eyes on Jesus and not entertaining the spirit of Lot’s wife that would cause us to look to the past or give any regard to what God has already delivered us from and brought us through. 

Distractions come to cause you to forfeit your assignment as you can’t be committed to something you’re confused about. Whenever the enemy sees that you are committed to a particular thing (especially a God thing), he attacks your commitment through distraction. And the beginning of the year is prime time for that kind of attack because that’s when we tend to make resolutions for the new year.

Listen to the recording of last night’s Midnight Cry Prayer Call where we dealt with the spirit of Distractions.
