TODAY’S MESSAGE IS NOW AVAILABLE ON PODCAST : )
I was recently reminded of something, a memory, which I’ll get around to sharing with you in just a brief moment. First, I want to convey the impression that It left, there is a joy that comes from a heavenly perspective, the joy that overrides the surroundings or the tangible things that seem to be affecting temporary emotions or temporary, temporal things. Which prompts the question, “how does one cultivate this type of joy, how does one protect it, how do you promote it in your environment so that you can go from experience to experience, carrying that joy? I discovered the answer when I was sharing the story of this memory with a friend. Years ago, I had made a comment to someone very special, something along the lines of, “well, I won’t be young and beautiful forever!”To which they replied, “that’s right”,… (then a long pregnant pause), “you’ll be OLD and beautiful!” In that one sentence, which was so liberating, I realize now that those words were pregnant with prophetic power! What we speak into our spirit and into the spirit of others has true potential to help or to harm. Every person needs to be mindful of this & responsible with this power, it needs to be cultivated for the purposes of the Lord! We can use good words combined with God’s word to bring forward His will We can change the environment we are currently in through belief, through faith and through the power of words and language! Naturally, we want to be in alignment with what God says is right and good, all of this is best done under the yoke of a God-fearing conscience.
Several times this week, I was reminded of the scripture regarding Elizabeth and how the baby leapt in her womb when She came into the presence of Mary who was pregnant with Jesus! We know the history, but you can see the visual here and that connection of carrying the word of God, Mary was effectively pregnant with the living word of God! Elizabeth was pregnant with one of His spokesmen! This is a physical representation of Gods joy complete, we are included in that joy. That baby responded to the verbal greeting and our future responds to what we confess and profess with our hearts, our minds, and mouth. God places special anointing upon His words as well as His spokespersons.
And it came to pass, that, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit:
The foundational spiritual battle that we face is foremost in our own mind, the incubator of our thoughts, our attitude, our place of retreat. Do not let the devil steal your joy! Every bad or painful event needs to be swaddled in disarming love and transformational directives! After a parent patches the wound, comforts the child and assesses they will be ok they distract the child by moving away from the event in physicality as well as posture, they essentially ignore the booboo, the cut, the tears and encourage the child to return to their joy! That’s what we need to do!
We need to remember that we as the Body of Christ, are effectively carrying the word of God inside of us too, Jesus is always with us, Gods thumb print is upon every cell of our being and Abba’s very breath is what gave loft to humanity, we have the Holy Spirit within! Lets speak to it more, lets listen to it more, let us repeat aloud what it brings forth from above! AMEN!
If then you have been raised with Christ,
seek the things that are above, where
Christ is, seated at the right hand of
God. Set your minds on things
that are above, not on things that
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
“A man is filled with what comes from his mouth and is nourished by what his lips provide. The tongue has power over life and death, those who like speaking will eat its fruit
“By believing from the heart, you obtain true righteousness; by confessing the faith with your lips you are saved
” Let the word of God dwell in you in all its richness
