Entering the New Season – part 3 Don’t Dwell in the Past

19 01 2017

2017Last time we looked at the key of Forgetting in our series of how to enter the new season, today we look at the second key. Dwelling and where we are to dwell as we continue in Isaiah 43.

 

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:18-19

 

Let us define the word dwell:

  • Live in or at a specified place.
  • Think, speak, or write at length about (a particular subject, especially one that is a source of unhappiness, anxiety, or dissatisfaction).

 

Once we forget the former things, we have to stop living there. We have to come out of the past. 2 Cor 5:17 needs to be ever before us in 2017, for those who accept Yeshua as Messiah are dwellinga new creation, the old has gone and the new is here! So you and I must resist our internal voice of the past which brings condemnation, that voice of mom, dad or other authority figure. There is a spark of truth which still hurts. That isn’t the devil. It is the past. You must take authority over the pain and hurt of the past, deal with the pain when God calls you to, and forget the former things walking completely with every ounce of your body, soul and spirit into the new thing!

 

I pray for each of you, I see the Lord blessing you, I see the Lord’s grace being poured out upon your past, that in that place of grace the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Yeshua Messiah as you walk into the new things which await you in 2017!

Join me next time as we look at the new thing God is doing in your life!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Poor in Spirit – Kingdom of Heaven – part 3

5 08 2016

10606784_sWe are in a series about the Kingdom of Heaven. Today we are looking at the poor in Spirit!

 

Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 

At first glance these words blessed and poor seem to be polar opposites. They are use by our Messiah to awakens us to the truth we are all poor in spirit. We are not the spiritual giants we want to be, we are not God and yet the kingdom of heaven belongs to us.

 

Our Lord and Savior wanted us to know God isn’t looking for spiritual giants. He isn’t looking for everyone to be a Billy or Franklin Graham, or a Mother Teresa or a Cindy Jacobs. God is looking for the Susie the homemakers and the Joe the handyman’s who know they need a relationship with God and are willing to seek Everyday family cologeHim with all their hearts.

 

Our Messiah said to us, it is okay to mourn and it is okay to be meek. It is okay to hunger and thirst for righteousness and to be merciful. To have a pure heart and to be a peacemaker of great value in the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

In this day and age of the Hillary Clinton’s and the Donald Trump’s God is using these words to say to us, be who I created you to be for the Kingdom of Heaven belong to you!

 

Join me next time when we continue looking at the Kingdom of Heaven from Matthew 5 and the key of righteousness.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in the new season, part 3

11 03 2016

moveThis is the third post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the O for obedient in our acrostic MOVE.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

2Co 10:5

Obedient is the choice we make whether to submit to control or guidance.

The student makes the choice when he/she walks into a classroom whether to submit to their teacher control and guidance, just as a child chooses to respond obediently to the correction/control of a loving parent.

Obedience is the ultimate choice. As a nation we have chosen to remove the 10 commandments from our public spaces. We set ourselves, our wants, our hopes and our desires against the knowledge of God and abandoning God as we refuse tofather daughter take our thought life captive, resulting in lives which are pulled to and fro by every passing wind.

Obedience to Christ in this season will bring us to a higher level of functionality, as we  embrace our Lord who is a good God, rather than revolting against the vindictive God once preached from pulpits across our nation and around the world in hopes to control people to walk obediently with their maker.

To be obedient to Yeshua (Christ) is a conscious choice, one I embrace with both hands, my whole heart and every brain cell I have! I know as I take every thought captive God will sift my thought life, purifying my motives so I can function to a higher level in this season!

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

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

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

Are You Ready?

1 08 2014

bridge reflectionBeing ready for the doors of the new season to open!

 

Here in Portland, Oregon it is taking about 12 days for the average house to sell. That is amazing because only a couple of years ago houses were going back to the bank left and right because people couldn’t sell them.

 

In this season we have to be ready when the doors open to new opportunities. As you enter, you might even feel like you are a small fish in a large pond, as I currently feel. I am taking a step from leading a local prayer team to be a state coordinator for Reformation Prayer Network, a national prayer group associated with Cindy Jacobs.

 

I know I am called to take this step, there have been several specific conformations and agreement with this ministry at the highestOregon levels. Yet conformations and agreement doesn’t make stepping out any easier. You have to believe in what God has called you to do in this new season. God is calling for you and I to have faith and to walk with confidence knowing He is going before us.

 

We have to allow the big dreams of our big God to become our own. We must allow ourselves to invest time and effort to expand our vision. Allowing God to give us new strategies as His plans unfolds around us.

 

Remember God intends to include you, not to exclude you!

 

He knows the plans and purposes He has for us and it is my hope and prayer that you and I must chose to align ourselves with God to see them come to pass!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Keys to Faith – Trust

27 06 2014

9226064_sAnother Key to walking by faith and not by sight is trust.

 

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Pro 3:5-6

 

A child instinctively trusts their parents. Trust is something deep within us, until it is destroyed by some outside force. Praying ChildIf a parent reveals by their words or actions they can’t be trusted then their child learns to distrust the world around them. As we understand the world around us we begin to let go of trusting the Lord, choosing instead to trust in those things we can touch, taste and feel, rather than the still small voice of the Lord which has been with us since our conception!

 

As adults we choose who and what we trust. This is what the Psalmist is speaking of when he wrote, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” Psa 20:7. David chose for himself and his people Israel to trust in the Lord!

 

Since the creation of the world mankind has struggled with walking by faith and not by sight. It is in allowing ourselves to trust in the Lord that we walk by the faith. It is in walking by faith that mountains move, changing the world!

 

Join me next time when we talk about syncing with God!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
