Letting God Behind the Curtain a Necessary Preparation

5 02 2016

2016 calendarWe began this series with a prophetic word for 2016 God intends to work in and through each of us! We learned last time that as we do the hard thing, to wait, God shines through us.  Today we look at the necessary preparation of Letting God Behind the Curtain.

 

Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”

Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

2Ti 2:19 & 21

 

If you have been with the Lord for any period of time you might think, I have turned away from wickedness. I have accepted the Lord, I follow God’s commandments and years ago I broke strongholds and soul ties the enemy had in my life.

 

God would say, “good for you, but do you want my plan and purpose for your life? Do you want my will?” To be an instrument for His special purpose made holy for this season you and I must allow God to go to behind the curtain to the deep dark reaches of our souls and root out everything.

 

Personally I can become overwhelmed by God’s plans and purposes for my life and want to hide. When I become behind the curtainoverwhelmed I look not to the Lord with confidence but to the tangible, the known, my childhood and say who am I that He would choose to use me because my own parents didn’t.  As much as I have worked and wrestled I lack the ability to look to the Lord in critical situations with confidence so I must allow God to root out the last of this childhood pain and allow a deep trust and confidence in God’s choosing me to take up residence in that deep dark hiding place.

 

Don’t be afraid to let God go behind the curtain of where you are hiding, which keeps you from becoming who God created you to be!

Shining While We Wait!

22 01 2016

2016 calendarWe began this series with a prophetic word for 2016 and the truth that God intends to work in and through each of us in 2016, so the light of the Lord to shine! Today we explore what it means to shine while you wait!

 

“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Waiting is the hardest part, but it is well worth it.

Psalms 27:14

 

These words of Psalms 27, go deep within us as we struggle to wait for our assignments in 2016 to begin. For some it is because of illness, like a good friend I know, things aren’t going well for her. She has been ill and it has affected her life in many ways. Yet she is struggling to be strong, she is struggling to wait for the Lord to break through, she knows first hand that waiting is the hardest part, maybe you do too.

 

I am waiting for the birth of a grandchild, there is nothing I can do, I pray, I wait, I support and I love. Those are the same things I do as I walk with my friend. Whether it is looking from the outside as with my grandchild or if you are the one who is in the midst of the struggle like my friend, things are happening as you wait, you are becoming stronger, your will to wait for something to happen is where your faith shines through and your will becomes solid as a rock.

Christ in the Garden of Gethsemene, Heinrich Hofmann, 1890

Christ in the Garden of Gethsemene, Heinrich Hofmann, 1890

I have a beautiful picture of Yeshua kneeling on a rock in the garden of Gethsemane where he sweated blood and his disciples fell asleep three times. This picture always comforts me because it reminds me of the sacredness of our struggle to wait and how even in that moment his faith shined brightly for us to see.

 

Know waiting is an important part of life, and as scripture tells us, it is well worth it!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Shining Through the Process

8 01 2016

2016 calendarLast time we explored a prophetic word for 2016 and the truth that God intends to work in and through each of us in 2016, so allow God’s light to shine! Today we will begin exploring this mystery of letting your light shine.

 

“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;  persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

2Co 4:6 -9

 

The body of Yeshua is facing some huge challenges in 2016. For CJM the first of these challenges is in painting the 20×20Ott in Salem OTT (Oregon Tabernacle Tent) foundation which is made up of over a dozen T-11 plywood and 2×4 pieces that come together like a giant jigsaw puzzle, so we are going to paint a map on the foundation to aid in assembly while providing needed protection from the elements.

 

To say the least this is a huge job. We have been working for two months getting things together, first wrestling to embrace God’s vision for the project (I am coming to understand how Noah felt), second a place to paint the foundation, then finding the right paint for both sides of the foundation. All these things have to be in place before we start. Then we have to find a crew to paint?

 

2 Corinthians 4 tells us we have a treasure (the truth of our messiah) in clay jars (our human bodies), and as I have worked to conserve my energy to make it through. We have been hard pressed on every side during this process, but like diamonds there was a purpose, that we wouldn’t buy the wrong paint! God has sustain us, encouraged us, as we prepare to paint next week I rejoice that we will see the OTT foundation ready for the 2016 season!

If you are in the Portland, Oregon area, we invite you to bring a scripture of worship, praise or prayer to put on the underside of the OTT foundation, go to our Facebook page for more details!

 

Join me next time as we look at shining while we wait!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Prepare to Shine Brightly!

1 01 2016

2016 calendarAs we begin 2016 it has been a tradition for the Lord to give me a prophetic word for his people at the beginning of the year. I believe keeping Phil 1:6 is a key scripture as we enter this year.

 

“… being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Php 1:6

 

I have been struggling with all the changes in my life. From changing churches to embracing my Jewishness. I said good-bye to my messianic body of believers as 2015 came to a close and as I did I have been forced to embrace who I am. I have made the decision to honor God by holding Sabbat each week. I had been struggling with how to begin because I couldn’t find a candle holder, so I decided to make one.shabbat candle holder

 

I prayed and I looked at the craft store I purchased this simple wood plaque and wood candle cups and brought them home. I took a picture to send to a friend of my project I began seeing the profound prophetic word for 2016 which God was releasing.

 

I sense we who believe in Yeshua (Jesus) are being set apart for something big.

 

Like this wood, we are yet unfinished for in the former season God shaped us and molded us but the work we were created for was never finished completely and like the candle cups which are as yet unsecured for the screws which I purchased to secure them were far too short so is the depth of our relationship with our God.

 

Our job is to be willing to accept the depth of relationship with Yeshua that is required for our light to shine brightly before men in this season and to rest in the truth that He who began a good work in us will bring it to completion!

 

Walk with expectation in 2016 for the Lord to shine brightly through you!

 

Join me next time as we look at the mystery and focus for 2016





Meaning of a Savior – Part 8

25 12 2015

Is 9We are finishing up our series Meaning of a Savior. In my last post we looked at the third attribute, Everlasting Father, and so today we look at the final attribute of Isaiah 9:6, Prince of Peace. If you would like to read the complete series please go back to November 6, 2015.

 

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”    

Isa 9:6

 

 

The final attribute for Yeshua (Christ) in this passage is Prince of peace. As the prince of peace he established grace in the kingdom of God. It was in peace that he came, as a baby in a manger to forever become the spotless the lamb of God who took away the sins of the world. It was upon these princely shoulders God established his kingdom. Not as the world establishes their kingdom through domination and war, but ratherbaby in a manger through peace. It was through Yeshua that this words of Philippians 4:7 were forever establish; “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

 

Accepting Yeshua as your messiah (savior) he then become the prince of peace in your life and with that he brings an amazing sense of peace no matter the situation, guarding your heart and mind as you focus on him and not on what is happening in the world around you.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Meaning of a Savior – Part 7

18 12 2015

Is 9We are in a series Meaning of a Savior and last time we looked at the third attribute Mighty God, so today we look at Everlasting Father as we explore Isaiah 9:6.

 

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”    

Isa 9:6

 

 

As we look at this attribute Everlasting Father we see Isaiah reminding Israel of those words, in I Chronicles 29:10 and following which expounds on the greatness, the power, the glory, the splendor and the majesty of the one who createdEverlasting Father them. Yet this attribute used purposefully by Isaiah connects Yahweh the God of the Old Testament to the His Son Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah and savior of the world.

 

Yeshua came that none would parish, not Jew, not gentile, no matter the race, color or creed. Yeshua has the same attributes as his everlasting father, for he carries his power, his glory, his splendor and his majesty!

 

Join me next time as we unpack the final attribute of Isaiah 9:6, Prince of Peace.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Meaning of a Savior – part 6

11 12 2015

Is 9We are in a series Meaning of a Savior and last time we looked at the first attribute, Wonderful Counselor today we will be looking at the second attribute Mighty God as we continue to explore Isaiah 9:6.

 

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”    

Isa 9:6

 

 

As we look at this attribute “mighty God” we see Isaiah connecting his people to their messiah. The mighty hand of God which delivered Israel was once again reaching out to mankind through Yeshua (Jesus) to redeem, and restore theirmighty Godjpg destiny forever.

 

To be mighty is to be extraordinary, and this use of the term mighty for our Messiah is one that helps us to identify him as our savior for it took an extraordinary man to walk as a human being, facing all of life’s challenges and overcoming man’s sin nature to become the lamb of God who took away the sins of the world. Only a mighty God could walk the extra mile which was required to redeem us all!

 

I am in awe of a mighty God who came to fight the battle, only he could win!

 

Join me next time as we unpack the attribute of “Everlasting Father”.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
