How Committed are You?

1 04 2016

12755593_sToday we begin a new blog series, How committed are you? In this new season, we all must assess how committed we are to our God and following His plans for our lives.

Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one in covenant with me, blind like the servant of the LORD?  You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen.”

Isa 42:19 – 20

In this passage the Lord is speaking to His people Israel who were supposed to be in a committed relationship with Him and willing to follow His plans in their lives, but clearly if you read on, they weren’t as committed to Him and He was to them.

Like Israel, you and I can take our relationship with the Lord and His plans us for granted. We can read our bible, go to church and yes even pray as if they were all part of a grand Christian check list, instead of that place where God releases His plans and strategies.  This is a new day and a new season. Do you hear the Lord calling you into a greater level of relationship? Are you willing to be fed and equipped with new manna you will need to enter new territories where you have never been before?

Join me next time as we explore how we as His servants can become deaf.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in this new season, Part 5

25 03 2016

moveThis is the fifth post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the E for Equipped in our acrostic MOVE.

 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2Ti 3:16

 

To be equipped is to be furnished with something, others would use the word provision.

In 2 Timothy 3 we see God thoroughly equipping the servant of God with the gospel for every good work. In the Old Testament we see the people of God equipped for  physical battle. In every case when the people of God are thoroughly equipped, they are fully prepared for the task at hand.

In this season we need to be ready for God to furnish those things we need. Currently I have been asking for strategies in how to move forward for the Oregon Tabernacle Tent (OTT) as well as for Complete Joy Ministries.

I was praying for God’s strategy for how to re-brand OTT since the vinyl lettering I had putOTT logo on last year came coming off. In faith I removed the rest of the lettering and chose to wait for God to reveal what we should do. In the most unlikely place a man I knew gave me a name of a christian seamstress who can do the job and she is only about 3 miles from my office, so no need to take it down to Salem which is 50 miles away!

Watching for how God will equip the work He has called you do is the final key to our movement in this and any season. When you are equipped to do the work of service movement will be easier and you will find the job goes much more smoothly than if you walk forward ahead of God without His equipping!

Don’t worry or move into anxiousness as you wait to be equipped, because tomorrow God may equip you and call you to move!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in the new season, Part 4

18 03 2016

moveThis is the fourth post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the V for victory in our acrostic MOVE.

 

“In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”

1Jn 5:3-4

 

 

Often when we think of the word victory it is in terms of defeating the enemy! If we look at the deeper meaning of victory we see it as an achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties.

 

In the story called pushing against the rock, (author unknown, which you will find on our empower page) we find a man was given an assignment by the Lord to push against theman-pushing-rock-up-hill-ok-to-use rock with all his might. Looking at things from the man’s perspective he thought his victory was to get the rock all the way up the hill and when the rock didn’t move he began  feeling like a failure. At that moment the enemy came at him causing him to relax his efforts to push against the rock. As he enquired of the Lord about his failure the Lord revealed “Your calling was to be obedient and push, and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom, and this you have done.”

 

God’s victories in our life look so much different than how we and the world see them. God saw this man strong and vital because of pushing with all his might against the rock while he saw himself a failure. Like this man, through opposition we will grow and our abilities will far surpasses that which we used to have. Our faith, our trust and our wisdom is where God desires you and I to have the victory so we must push on our own rock, which might never move so we see amazing and profound victories rise in our spirit man!

Join me next time when unpack the next key to moving in the new season, E for Equipped.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Meaning of a Savior – part 4

27 11 2015

Is 9are in a series Meaning of a Savior and last time we look at Yeshua (Jesus) God’s precious son given to us and today we are going to at the third phase of Isaiah 9:6, “and the government will be on his shoulders”.

 

“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

 

 

To unpack this phrase “and the government will be on his shoulders” we need to understand what government our Father is talking about in Isaiah. He is not talking about the government of men as the people in the time of Isaiah hoped. Even when Yeshua came they were looking for an earthly king, who would save them from the ternary of Roman dictatorship and because they were looking for this earthly king they didn’t recognize him.

 

You and I must examine what we are looking for in a Savior. Are we crosslooking for someone who will save us from our hurting marriage, from a government who is looking to everything but the one true God or are we looking for the one who save us from our own sin, destroying every door of the enemy who desires to destroy the kingdom of God within us!

 

We must look to this savior, who establishes within us his kingdom, his authority and  his government and his love!

 

Join me next time as we unpack the title of “Wonderful Counselor”.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Life after Transition

17 11 2012

Today we finish our series on transition as we look once again at Jesus the man, as he interacted with his disciples after his resurrection in John chapter 20.

After Jesus had greeted them again, he said, “I am sending you, just as the Father has sent me.” Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

 Joh 20:21-22

After Jesus died, the disciples did not know what the scriptures said about Jesus being raised to life. Often in transition, we are just as shocked as his disciples were about seeing Jesus. We think transition is the end of a relationship when in reality it can be the beginning of an even deeper one, as with disciples receiving the Holy Spirit.

In our lives it is tough to walk with someone when they are leaving, whether it is leaving a job, a marriage or a church. We must work through our feelings, as with Thomas who had to see his hands, or Peter who needed to be cleansed of his shame. We must understand God intends for transitions to bring greater blessings so we must choose to stay in relationship during and after transition.

Jesus had to choose to come back and interact with his disciples, which he did with joy and the disciples had to choose to recognize and accept his presences in their lives after the transition had happened for the blessing to be secure!

May you always receive God’s blessings as you walk through transition!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

What is Transition?

9 10 2012

Today we begin a new topic, one near and dear to everyone’s heart. I am kidding, because transition is no ones favorite topic and if you are a guy, change another more common word for transition is like a four letter (dirty) word!

A simple definition of transition is passing from one state, stage, space or subject to another.

Currently I have friends and family who are buying and selling houses, changing churches and entering school you might add your own transitions, jobs, relationship status, etc. Transition or change is everywhere just look outside your door as the weather here in America moves from summer to fall.

Personally I have two areas of transition. One is walking with Complete Joy Ministries into non-profit status, the other is to embrace my Hebrew heritage. Transitions are a challenge and sometimes difficult, we all have then and they affect all areas of our lives.

I hope you will join me next time as we look at our first transition, Adam and Eve leaving the garden!

On a side note, every series will carry the same heading picture so that if you begin in the middle or end of a series and want to find the beginning the pictures will make it easy to find!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Power of Your Testimony!

6 10 2012

Last time we talked about how we are overcomers by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. And today I want to talk about the power of your testimony.

I was sitting in Key Bank talking with Benjamin one of the Mangers as he worked to get my on-line banking working before opening a business savings account.

I shared about how excited I was to have the bank so close to my house. I then asked him if he was a Christian, which he said yes, so I told him the rest of the story, how I had been asking the Lord for a Key Bank branch closer to my house and when I saw the land go up for sale, I asked the Lord, there Lord, please can it be there and left it at that. Then months later I saw the sign which said, Key Bank is coming soon I rejoiced.

As I finished telling Benjamin the story he walked out of his office to get a the copy of the documents he needed me to sign and it was then I saw the On Point Credit Union bill board ad larger than life out his office window. Not wanting this young man to be discouraged I asked the Lord to remove the ad and put up something to encourage him.

Less than 30 minutes later as I was signing the paperwork I noticed old bill board ad was being taken down and a new one was being put up, and I was so amazed at how quickly the Lord answered my prayer that I shared with Benjamin how I prayed the Lord would always use that billboard to encourage him.

Walking out the door of the bank I was in awe and rejoiced for God loves his children so much and thanked Him for hearing and answering both of my prayers! Always remember your testimony makes God real to others and because Benjamin is a Christian it was a great bonus because we could rejoice together!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
