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!

26 02 2016

moveWe are beginning a new series called “How to MOVE in this new season”. We will be using the acrostic MOVE to explain several important aspects of our movement in this season.

To Move is to go continuously from one point to another!

We take as our inspiration from these two verses:

 

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees

and be careful to keep my laws.

Eze 36:27

 

“For in him we live and move and have our being.”

As some of your own poets have said, “We are his offspring.”

Act 17:28

We have to watch as we move forward in this season because there is so much that is passing by, whether it is the weekly services, maybe another conference or something else, we have to be aware of when and how to move so we stay in harmony with the plans and purposes of God!

We have to understand and know our motives; we have to be obedient to God. We have to walk with virtue and allow God to equip us, because without His equipping us, we might find ourselves off course or stranded in the middle of the night!

Join me next time as we look at the M in move, Motives!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

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!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Meaning of a Savior – part 2

13 11 2015

Is 9Last time we began the series, Meaning of a Savior and today we are going to unpack Isaiah 9:6 first phrase by phrase, then word by word as we look at Yeshua (Jesus) and who he is!

 

“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

 

We are tempted as we unpack this verse to overlook the first couple of phrases to get to the meat. Isaiah knew the importance of these first phrases so let’s unpack them too!

 

“For to us a child is born”, this first phase tells us several things about our savior. First, our savior is ours! We need to make our savior personal. The second is that our savior is real, because he was born just like you and I were, he wasn’tBaby beamed off of some space ship, sorry star trek fans. But he wasn’t. He was born in a manger. He lived the life of a child, he had dirty diapers and had to learn to walk and to talk. He had to deal with bullies and even being lost as a child.

 

This often overlook phrase reminds us our savior is real, as real as the fingers that are typing these words and your eyes that are reading this post. Our Savior, your savior and my savior, he is real. Let us rejoice as we meditate on the meaning of our savior, for he is indeed real and not some fictional character in a juice novel!

 

Join me next time as we unpack “to us a son is given”

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Finishing Well

10 07 2015

mountain and valley1We are in a series called maturity in our ever shifting atmosphere.  Last time we explored God-given maturity and beginning well. Today we are looking finishing well.

When I think of finishing well these words, he who began a good work in you… from Philippians 1 come to mind. Let’s look at the whole verse.

“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 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 1:4-6

Paul is speaking of those people who partnered with him in the spreading of the gospel. He is confident that God who began a good work in them, to follow Christ, will carry them through to the very last day of their lives.

The key to finishing well is relying on God. Hebrews 12:2 tells us “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith”. It is in keeping your eyes focused on God and looking to at Jesus’ life as our model we learn how to finish well.

Two years ago, God gave a vision of an Oregon Tabernacle Tent and how 10 people would sew into this work and finance thetabernacle tent to buy purchase of this tent. Some have prayed into this vision, others have given to its purchase and this week CJM purchased the 20×20 tent. This phase of the journey is finishing well, having come through the believing for its purchase. It took keeping our eyes focused on God, his plans and purposes to see it come into reality. It seems a long time coming, yet as CJM purchased the tent I thought, “really God are we ready to move forward?” So we are off to another beginning and I know God will bring the Oregon Tabernacle Tent mission to completion as we keep our eyes fixed and focused on him!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

The Relationship that Sustain in a Shifting Atmosphere!

1 05 2015

11087581_sIn our last post we opened a series on our ever shifting atmosphere and the need for maturity. These words are key, for they reveal the difference between walking in maturity and walking in our own strength.

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love,

I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,

but do not have love, I gain nothing.

1Co 13:1 – 3

Before there is obedience, before their is maturity leading naturally into authority, there must be an encounter with God our Father. It is through this relationship that we were created to grow and mature. Moses did not have a vibrant mature relationship with God in Egypt because the bible tells us  in Exodus chapter  3, as Moses tended this father-in-law’s flocks he encountered God.

Moses struggled with those who oppressed his people and still today we struggle with the oppression we face in our daily lives. It is through our relationship with God which brings us to a place of speaking in love, acting in love and giving in love which birthing life in others rather than release the pain in our hearts which can build up when someone does something we don’t agree with.

We would do well to reflect upon the life of Moses; for as he grew in his relationship with God, he learned to follow God and as he followed God, he saw God set his people free!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Not My Will, But Thy Will Be Done!

5 09 2014

zagart701 - landscapeIn this season it is paramount to come completely into agreement with God’s plans and purposes.  

 

Struggling with God’s plans and purposes are a natural part of life, yes even Jesus struggled to come into complete agreement with God’s plan of salvation.

 

“Going a little farther, he (Jesus) fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.'”

Mat 26:39 NIV

 

When coming into agreement with God’s plans and purposes means sacrifice or change we will find ourselves struggling. The struggle is not sinful, but choosing not to wrestling our flesh into agreement can become sinful. We can’t allow our stubbornness, our fears or our pride (all great pockets for sin to hide) to keep us from coming into complete agreement with God’s plans and purposes.

 

Paul’s words in Hebrew encourage us  “run with patience the race that is set before us”, because everyone wrestles with God’s plans and purpose!  

 

Father in heaven as we come face to face with your plans and purposes, let us wrestle with integrity and come to that place where we join Jesus in saying, “not my will, but thy will be done.”

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Keys of Faith – to believe

20 06 2014

9226064_sWalking by faith and not by sight requires us to several things, the greatest of these is to believe!

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6

Believing is key to walking by faith and not by sight. When we believe God is who He said he is, then wezagart701 - landscape can have faith to walk knowing, He will do what He said He is going to do. Without belief in God we walk around “doing” good things based on what we can see with our own eyes which can lead even the best of Christians in to a life lacking the miraculous moves of God we were created to embrace by faith!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Heb 12:1

Join me next time when we talk about another Key to Faith –  trust.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Father Abraham?

18 04 2014

blood red moon-  paidWe began this week with a Blood Red Moon, as if God were highlighting the Jewish Passover and I could not help but reflect upon what God was up to. I marveled as on Sunday we remember the death and resurrection of Christ.

 

During this week several things shouted out to me, the first, how much God loves mankind. As the Jewish nation who were the first fruits of God’s plan for reconciliation were delivered! The second is how in less than a week the redemption of all of mankind became forever linked to Passover as Christ gave his life as the sacrificial lamb of God.

 

Then I thought about scripture and the many references to Father Abraham, which sent me to that first commandment with a promise, honor your father and mother that it might go well with you (4th commandment). Was it possible that the Jews are the spiritual parents of the Christians and that we are in reality because of Christ all part of the one new man God intended from creation? Giving new meaning to these words in Galatians.

 

“Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: ‘All nations will be blessed through you.’ “

Gal 3:8

 

As the children of the gospel open their eyes to our spiritual parents of the old testament, honoring and blessing them, I wonder if God himself will look down from heaven and say well done good and faithful servant!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Letting Go of REGRETS!

4 04 2014

11076235_sToday I want to talk about letting go of regrets, we all have them even God did in Genesis 6:7 when he regretted creating the human race because of our wickedness.

To regret is to feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over (something that has happened or been done, esp. a loss or missed opportunity).

In 2 Corinthians, Paul the great evangelist had regrets, but like God he realized the importance and the power of letting go of them.

“Even if I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it.
Though I did regret it–
I see that my letter hurt you, but only for a little while–” 2Co 7:8

Letting go of regrets affects our health and “maybe the key to better health as we age” writes Charles Choi10232309_s in a livescience.com article called No Regrets: Why ‘Letting Go’ May Be Key to Happy Aging.

We see why as we look further in 2 Corinthians 7:10

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret,
but worldly sorrow brings death.”
2Cor 7:10

The key to having no regrets is in how and where we filter the things that happen in our lives.

Many Christians give lip service to those words in Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Many people ask what the key is to the joy they witness in my life and that key is how and where I filter the events that happened in my life. I filter them with God for he reveals His perspective and His purpose for why a specific thing happened which allows me to have Godly sorrow leaving no regrets!

PS… I am not saying that letting go of regrets is always a quick or simple process, but it is a process that allows my joy to be restored!

Blessings and Complete Joy,
Millie
