Yahweh Directs Your Steps

narrow path1by Hazel Straub

How many times have you carefully laid out your plans? Then the unexpected happens and everything changes, with your plans in the dust bin. When you think about it, you realized you forgot to ask Yahweh what he wanted, before you planned. Also you did not listen for his voice. No need to worry, Yahweh directs your steps. You will end up at the right place at the right time. Yahweh, your Good Shepherd, faithfully leads you! He is working it all in your favor, in his time.

A person may plan his own journey,
but Yahweh directs his steps. (Proverbs 16:9 NOG)

Fear Not God Loves You!

iuby Hazel Straub

Ever notice how fear cripples and causes you to lose all peace in your life? Fear, the most contagious disease in the world, tries to make you a victim, without hope. Satan rules his kingdom with fear or False Evidence Appearing Real. God, however is love and he tells us not to fear because he is with us. He goes with us through the fire, flood and flurry of trials and we come through it all not smelling of smoke or drowning.  His love filled presence casts out all fear. He makes provision for us in the wilderness and carries us, when tiredness causes us to falter.

No matter what we face, God promises that he will never leave or abandon us. His defeat of Satan brings us victory, through Christ Jesus. In the midst of the darkness of fear, the love of God shines brighter and casts out all fear. Trusting in God, nothing is impossible. He makes provision for you because he is your provider. The dry desert gets streams of water, provided by God’s loving hands. Do not look at the forces aligned against you, but rest and relish the love of God for you! He never fails you!

God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love.

We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first. (1 John 4 17-19 MSG)

Holy Spirit Your Gift

holy-spirit-dove-fire-creationswapby Hazel Straub

A wedding celebration will happen soon. Before the wedding, the bridegroom gives gifts to his beloved, including an engagement ring. Today we celebrate the giving of Holy Spirit, the gift from our bridegroom Yeshua our Messiah. This is the promise for the wedding celebration to come and his transforming love for us.

Yeshua told his disciples, who were his witnesses, to wait in Jerusalem. “So I am sending My Father’s promise to you. Stay in the city until you receive it—until power from heaven comes upon you.  This is what you heard Me teach—that just as John ritually cleansed people with water through baptism, so you will be washed with the Holy Spirit very soon.” (Luke 24:49-50 VOICE)

The disciples (120 of them) followed Yeshua’s instructions and stayed and prayed in a house. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven, like a rushing wind and flames like fire appeared on each one’s head. Holy Spirit filled, the disciples received purification and transformation. They then went out into the street, where the pilgrims from many nations, who were there to celebrate Pentecost, heard them speak, supernaturally, in their native languages. The disciples spoke about how they had witnessed of the death, burial and resurrection of Yeshua. 3,000 turned from their sins and received Yeshua, had water baptism and received the gift of Holy Spirit.

Celebrate your gift of the coming wedding, with Yeshua! Receive Holy Spirit, as a witness of the transforming power and love of your bridegroom, who calls you beloved.

Happy Pentecost!

It’s All About Perspective

iuby Hazel Straub

When you look out the window of an airplane at 20,000 feet, your view is much different from ground view. It is all about your perspective. Oftentimes, we have limited eye sight concerning our lives. It is only when we come up higher, that our viewpoint changes. At times we get too involved and entangled in the temporary tests, missing the bigger picture.

We are seated with Christ, in heavenly places and the defeated enemy is under our feet. Don’t let the enemy intimidate you because Christ defeated him on the cross. Jesus’ victory is your victory. Live in victory! Have an eternal orientation on your life.

Your Trials And Tests Equip You

Sierra Nevada

by Hazel Straub

Have the changes that have occurred recently, in your life, caused concern? God is equipping you with all the tools and experience you will need in the new season in your life. It is no accident that you have gone through the fire and come out not smelling of smoke. The lessons that you learned will inspire others.

Nothing is ever wasted in your life. The times that you despaired and wanted to quit but did not,. blazed a trail for others to follow. What you experienced has caused a greater reliance on the Lord. Your tests and trials cause you to understand independence from God is futile. He brings you into a broad place where blessings and equipping will come to you quickly. There is much for you to do with the Lord and he gives you more than you could imagine. Fully equipped, as his ambassador of love and hope.

Now may the God of peace—
who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus,
the great Shepherd of the sheep,
and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood—
may he equip you with all you need
for doing his will.
May he produce in you,
through the power of Jesus Christ,
every good thing that is pleasing to him.
All glory to him forever and ever! Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21 NLT)

Praise God For His Provision

Seljalandsfoss Falls and Wildflowers, Iceland-849072by Hazel Straub

So often we waste time worrying about things God has already promised to provide. We fret about provision, when he has already said he will give us all that we need. Doubt, fear and unbelief cloud our vision, instead of trust and faith in God’s love for us. Seek him and his kingdom and he provides everything.

“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. (Mathew 6: 30-34 MSG)

Walk In The Love Of God

iurby Hazel Straub

The love that God calls us to express is not romantic but practical and sacrificial. It motivates us to care more for others. Humility is its trademark. With love there is no “me first.” It does not condemn others but puts up with anything. Love doesn’t insist on looking good or scoring.

The heart of love, demonstrates trust in God, no matter the circumstances.  It always looks for the best and doesn’t keep track of other’s sins. It is forward-looking without regret. It doesn’t quit but keeps going until the end.

Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. (1 Corinthians 13:7 AMP)

Keys To Answered Prayer

Worshipping Godby Hazel Straub

What are the keys to prayer that gets answered? Quit fretting and chewing and gnawing on your problems. Instead, give your requests to God, with thanksgiving and praise. The focus is not on the problem but on our Problem Solver. God is good and his mercies last forever. His love never ceases.. He loves you and hears and answers. He gave his Son to die for you and gives all you need.

Once you rehearse and vocalize the goodness of the Lord, from a thankful heart, his peace floods your heart and mind. His presence surrounds you with quiet confidence that he hears and answers you. You will see the blessings rain upon you because of your thankful heart of worship.

Don’t worry over anything whatever; tell God every detail of your needs in earnest and thankful prayer, and the peace of God which transcends human understanding, will keep constant guard over your hearts and minds as they rest in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7 PHILLIP)
