Agree With God About Yourself!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Sometimes, we study things about ourselves that God isn’t even studying. Don’t be harder on yourself than God is.

The Goodness Of God!

by Hazel Straub

God is very good to those who fear or respect, reverence and hold him in awe, as the greatest authority. His boundless unfailing love is not measurable.

How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you.
You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world. You hide them in the shelter of your presence, safe from those who conspire against them. You shelter them in your presence, far from accusing tongues.
Praise the Lord, for he has shown me the wonders of his unfailing love. He kept me safe when my city was under attack. In panic I cried out, “I am cut off from the Lord!” But you heard my cry for mercy and answered my call for help.
Love the Lord, all you godly ones! For the Lord protects those who are loyal to him, but he harshly punishes the arrogant. So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord! (Psalm 31:19-24 NLT)

True Worshiper

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If you are always joyless because of how people hate you, then you might not know who you are. If you’re joyful, despite how people hate you and love them unfeigned, then you know who you are; a “True Worshiper.”

Joy, predicated on the One internal, not the ones external… (John 15:18-19)

Rescued From Despair

by Hazel Straub

God reaches out to us, in our imprisonment of a mess of sin, fear and doom. His son, Yeshua, our Shepherd, rescues us from the deep dark pit and places us in his kingdom of love. He takes our sins and removes them. He restores us, giving us hope and joy, where we had despair, depression, and defeat. Praise his name!

God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son, he loves so much. The Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.(Ephesians 1:13-14 MSG)

The Healing Hand Of The Lord

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God is going deep to heal each one of us. God is dealing with the deep things in your spirit, the hidden things in your belly.

In order to bring out His best in us, through the worse of us, that the excellency of the power be of Him, and not of us. The things we don’t talk about. The things we don’t want to talk about, the things that speak to us when no one else is listening, the things that deal with the core of our very essence…The things we say we are healed from but we still need healing from.

Do not rush or try to dictate the healing hand of the Lord, simply rest, recline, and receive the wholeness from his arms, his heart.

The things that hinder our being, thwart, and retard our growth are being brought forth. Think it not strange the unidentified feelings and emotions that surface and resurface in this season.

Softly and tenderly, the Lion of love, purrs over you with great detail and deep comfort. He loves away your pain, your fear, and lack. Yes, even the things we wrestle with within ourselves. The things we can’t always express, but can always feel. God is going deeply, to heal you…to deepen the cry of our hearts for HIM…Selah

Extend Mercy

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 1:12-14 KJV)

Paul, previously named Saul, formerly a Hater, but God had mercy on Him. I was once a Hater, we’ve all been Haters and come short of the Glory of God, but he had mercy on us. Extend mercy to your Hater, they might be the next Paul one day.

Refuse to hold people, to standards that you know you can’t live yourself. Love your Haters and extend mercy today!

Apostle Hater Lover

Love Others From The Heart

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to love others from the heart. Challenges come and expose our hard self-righteous hearts, with the lack of love, when we disagree and disapprove of others, who fail to meet our standards.

God desires his tender compassion and pure love to dwell in our hearts, reflecting his forgiveness and merciful agape love, for us. Although, factually right about an issue, our prideful attitude may be argumentative, hateful, condemning and nasty, when we fight to prove our point of view. No love for others is seen.

The love of God, however, covers sins and transgressions like a quilt. His son, Jesus, died for his enemies, to save them. Since the Spirit of Jesus resides in believers, this love extends out of us, to our governing authorities, fellow Christians, co-workers, neighbors, relatives, and even our enemies. We need mercy and forgiveness, so extend it to others.

Lord, purify my heart and fill it with your love, so I can love like you!

Hate stirs up disputes, but love covers all kinds of transgressions. (Proverbs 10:12 CJB)

Change Your Focus

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We have to keep our focus on Christ’s message and not the mess of the enemy. Change your FOCUS. When we are focusing on the wrong things, the enemy drains or wastes a lot of our energy. The enemy tries to make us exhausted, with feelings of “no avail.” Simply, change your focus. We have a tendency to become consumed with what we focus our hearts and minds on.

Focus on the better, the good, and your success because you are success! Negative voices, pessimistic people, and misanthropic persons, Shut them off and do you, and what Yahweh requires of you, (part of changing your focus).

Let Yahweh handle them, that is his job, he is more than capable. Only deal with what you’re supposed to, change your confession; make sure your speaking is aligned with what the Father is saying over your life. Truth is, he is fighting your battle. Keep allowing him to teach you and reveal to you what you’re supposed to learn from this, benefiting you for the rest of your life.

I take authority over and exercise dominion over all vain imaginations, harassing thoughts, and every word curse that they bear no more fruit in your life. I remove the false pressure that if you don’t do something, it won’t be right or taken care of. I loose you to working smart not over working hard. IT IS Time to give it all away to Yahweh!

The Love Of Jesus Changes Everything

by Hazel Straub

Jesus loves you! Believe it and see your life completely transformed, by his love. Breakthrough and amazing things happen, as you rest and rely on this truth.

Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture: They kill us in cold blood because they hate you. We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us. (Romans 8:35-39 MSG)

Knowledge Or Relationship With God?

Trust In Yahweh!

by Hazel Straub

Too often we give the enemy more power than he deserves because we look on him, with fear. God, however, is with us and has already resolved the situation and we are victorious. Be courageous, focus and trust in Yahweh. He never fails you.

Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you. (Deuteronomy 31:5 MSG)

Give God Power Over Your Life!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Don’t give people the power over your life that should only be given to God. I repeat: Don’t give people the power over your life that should only be given to God. We give people way too much power over us, like God can’t bless us, by himself.

(Psalm 75, promotion comes from the Lord not from man).

Hard, Difficult Times?

by Hazel Straub

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.  (James 1:2-4 NLT)

When we face difficulties, hardships, and inflation, we have a tendency to want to complain about our circumstances. God, however, uses trials to help us mature and become more like him. We like steel become strong, while in refining fire, which consumes the things not pleasing to God.

When our circumstances are not challenging, we have a tendency to depend upon ourselves in self sufficient pride.. In the fire of testing and hard times, it becomes clear that our way does not work. Difficult circumstances cause us to seek the Lord for help and strength. The hotter the flame, the more our avenues of escape disappear, exposing our character flaws, and we cry to God for relief. As we come to a place of total abandonment and dependency on him, we can rejoice in the process of his mercy and love. This process although painful, assists us in dying to our flesh and maturing to show more of Jesus, in our walk of faith.

Our Best Father–Daddy God!

by Hazel Straub

Praising Daddy God for his tender love
He calls us his beloved, sends his dove
He holds us close, leads and provides
All our needs he abundantly supplies

Although there are trials and tests
He leads and guides, in him we rest
Lavishly celebrates us at the table
In the presence of enemies disabled

Nothing can separate us from his care
Generously gave Christ’s life to share
Adopted and made us his royalty, his sons
We inherit the kingdom of God, it’s done

Rejoice and let Daddy God’s joy overflow
Surely goodness and mercy a river flows
Forever dwell in the house of Daddy God
Love, life, light, indwells his living Word

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 NLT)

Yahweh Is With You!

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh will perfect (excellent, entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcoming, correct in every detail) what he has started in your life. This does not happen instantly, but is a maturing process that he grows you through. Rejoice, you are not alone for he goes with you, as your helper and sustainer, against the giants.

Though Yahweh dwells on high, yet he looks upon the lowly; but the proud he knows from afar. If I walk in the middle of distress and trouble, You revive me; You stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies and save me with your right hand. Yahweh perfects me, O Yahweh, Your loving-kindness endures forever and you never forsake the works of Your hands. (Psalm 138:6-8)

God Resets Your Life

by  Apostle Gabriel Cross

Jehovah Sabaoth just pushed the RESET AND  RESTART button on your life. Regardless to what has been, what you’ve done, or the past, Jehovah is causing help, answers, and resources to appear. He is causing you to come suddenly into your destiny, the time of your life. He is causing the things you need to come suddenly into action and into view.

Although the enemy tried to knock you down, Jehovah is causing you to spring, move, and dart suddenly. You’re arising from a position of lacking power or unable to produce to a place of power. Where the enemy tried to knock you off your block, God just reset things back in His order in your life. RESET, RESTART, TODAY!

God’s Peace Your Rock!

by Hazel Straub

God’s peace or shalom does not depend upon the circumstances that we experience. Jesus, the Prince of Peace, resides inside of us and his wholeness and completeness, with nothing missing or broken, preserves us, no matter the chaos that swirls around us. Do not allow anything or anyone to distract you from focusing, worshiping, trusting and depending on him.

A person whose desire rests on you
you preserve in perfect peace,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in Adonai forever,
because in Yah Adonai,
is a Rock of Ages.”
(Isaiah 26:3-6 CJB)

Thirsty For The Living God

by Hazel Straub

My whole being cries and thirsts for you the Living Water
Humbling myself, laying down my pride as a son or daughter
You alone can satisfy my thirsty heart and dry wounded soul
Life, hurts, trauma, drama  and sin has taken quite the toll

My arms raise in surrender, relinquishing the past to you, Lord God
Yielding my will, intellect, rights, control, emotions, life, soul and body
In worship, I release all that restrains from closer intimacy with you
My desire, focus, thirst, and heart now set only on you filling my view

In you alone and by your help I put my hope and fully trust
Yahweh’s love surrounds, heals, fills, preserves from soul rust
God, my Rock, encompassing with lively deliverance songs
My praise freely raised in grateful heart worship all day long

Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this.”

No Fear God Is Near

by Hazel Straub

Many times, when God has us in a narrow tight place, we cry out for rescuing from our situation. We think, “If only God would quickly change our circumstances, everything would be fine.” Instead, God says he is not delivering us out of our difficulty but is walking with us through our predicament.

God is with us, so we will not fear. It is on the journey with him, that we have our character refined, are humbled and become more like Christ. Also hardship teaches us to focus on Yahweh, who is present with us, not on the water that seeks to overwhelm us or the flames that leap at us. He has promised that we will not drown nor will the fire burn or scorch us. He is our help and strength, in the midst of trials.  He will make us a powerful testimony of overcoming, with the help of God, to many who do not know him yet.

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;” (Isaiah 43:1b – 3a NIV)

Prayer To Yahweh

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh, my Covenant Keeping God, if you do not go with me, I do not want to go. Today, I will move and leave what is familiar, if you go with me, as you did with Moses. Your presence is the comfort that I need, as I venture into unknown territory. Your light casts out all darkness.

Your presence makes the impossible, possible. I trust and rely on you today. Do not leave or forsake me, for in you, is fullness of joy. I delight in your closeness. Your presence gives me rest, so I do not stress. Yahweh, when you go with me, nothing is too difficult. You are my strength and sustain me. In you and your presence, I am confident.

Thank you for your comfort that causes all my fears and anxious thoughts to vanish. In this day, I am confident in your nearness and give you all the glory and praise. In Jesus name! Amen

Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.” (Exodus 33:15 NIV)

Love Each Other As Worship!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The Word declares, “How can we say we love God whom we haven’t seen, but yet hate each other whom we have seen?” (1 John 4:20)

God made us in his image and in his likeness. Maybe, our lack of intimacy with God is connected to our shallow relationships, with each other.

Seeds Bring A Harvest!

by Hazel Straub

Fluffy seeds float in the air, carried by the wind. Seeds from cottonwoods will only produce more of the same. Dandelion seeds grow more dandelions much to the disgust of many a homeowner, who is trying to have a beautiful lawn.

What kind of seeds are you planting?  Kindness or discord, love or hatred, forgiveness or offense? Seeds of kindness births more kindness. Plant random acts of kindness, love, and mercy, today.

God will never be mocked! For what you plant will always be the very thing you harvest. The harvest you reap reveals the seed that you planted. If you plant the corrupt seeds of self-life into this natural realm, you can expect a harvest of corruption. If you plant the good seeds  of Spirit-life you will reap beautiful fruits that grow from the everlasting life of the Spirit. And don’t allow yourselves to be weary in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming! (Galatians 6:7-9 TPT)

Rest And Snuggle

by Hazel Straub

Jesus calls for us to come to him and rest. Whatever bothers you and weighs you down, leave it with him. Your shoulders were never meant to carry heavy burdens. Quit thinking about the problems and know that God solves all of them. Keep your focus and meditation on the wonderful love of God manifested through his one and only son, Jesus. He walks and talks with you while you journey through life. When exhaustion hits, he carries  and sings over you. Stop your struggle and snuggle close in rest.

“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.” (Matthew 11:28-30 TPT)

Listen, Wake Up!

by Hazel Straub

Awakening
I am awakening my people.
Hearts be awakened
Come out of your slumber and awaken to my voice
Wake up!

Prepare your lamps and carry extra oil
It is time to listen and tune your heart to my voice.
Listen
Prepare
Awaken!

To live like this is all the more urgent, for time is running out and you know it is a strategic hour in human history. It is time for us to wake up! For our full salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others. Instead fully immerse yourselves into the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and don’t waste even a moment’s thought on your former identity to awaken its selfish desires. (Romans 13:11-14 TPT)

Worship God Together

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The way to defeat the enemy is “TOGETHER.” The enemy cannot write or dictate your future. However, every time we worship God, we write and dictate the enemy is (DEFEATED).

Give Your Worries To Daddy God

by Hazel Straub

Release your tight grip and obey Daddy God, in all things that concern you. Let him control, guide and lead you. Give him have all your worries and concerns. Let him change you because self efforts fail. Yield the right of way to him. Do his will and give him the glory, for he is working on your behalf, all the time.

Psalm 55:22 (MSG)
“Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders—
he’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out.
He’ll never let good people
topple into ruin.”
(Psalm 55:22 MSG)

The Body Of Christ And The Love of God

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

In the Kingdom of God, the body of Christ doesn’t do things to get EVEN. We do things EVEN when we don’t feel like it, because of the LOVE of GOD.

Daily Mercies Of Yahweh

by Hazel Straub

The mercy of Yahweh is new each morning. He does not treat us as we deserve but spares and saves us from judgment, harm, danger and trouble. His angels rescue and shield us from death, destruction and accidents. Although we might notice, many times preoccupation with our immediate concerns, blinds us to the car that narrowly missed hitting us, the disease that passed by, the thwarted thief, and the gun that misfired. The love of Yahweh preserves and rescues with incredible mercy!

Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.
(Lamentations 3:21-23 NLT)

Bloom!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Keep pushing! Before we see the beautiful flower that blooms, the flower has to undergo many changes and push through a lot of dirt. It is only as it pushes through the dirt that it is able to see the sunlight and the world. So keep pushing through the dirt, my friend.

It is time to bloom!

bloom – the period of greatest prosperity or productivity. A state or time of beauty, rapid and excessive growth, freshness, and vigor. A state or time of high development and achievement.

It’s your time to Bloom!

Follow Jesus!

by Hazel Straub

Today, no longer let the past define you. Walk away and close the door to where you used to merely exist. Keep your focus on Jesus, who desires to show you many new treasures. Live the abundant life, following the Lord on the adventure he has for you. Get his vision for the things he wants to open for you. No more hesitation! Go!

Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”  And they left their nets at once and followed him. (Matthew 4:19-20 NLT)

Got Any Character Flaws?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It doesn’t require much character to point out someone else’s flaws. But it is great character, when one can admit that one has flaws. The things we accuse others of are usually the things we are guilty of doing to the Lord. Worship is realizing one’s imperfections, not everyone else’s.

Worried? Keep Your Focus On Yahweh!

by Hazel Straub

Going through the storm? Keep your focus firmly fixed on Jesus. He leads and guides you successfully, through the most narrow and dark places. Problems, however, arise when we take our eyes off him and worry about our circumstances. We begin to think about the “what ifs” and magnify the challenges.

Our focus becomes the problem and not the Problem Solver. The problem gets our time, thoughts, on which we meditate and consumes our hearts, becoming our idol. It takes first place in our lives and becomes what we worship, instead of trusting Yahweh. Anything that takes the focus off Jesus is an idol.

Change your focus and praise and worship Jesus. Look up! Stop worrying and striving, instead rest in his strength and listen to what he is speaking to you. Then you will successfully come through the challenging season.

I love you, Yahweh, my strength. Yahweh is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower. (Psalm 18:1-2 WEB)

Love The Hard To Love!

Chosen For This Time!

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh chose you to live in this time and season. He knew this was your time to live and overcome. Your destiny is to worship (to bow down in submission, inside of your heart to him) and praise his name. Then you will walk with the Lord Jesus Christ and follow his lead, into good pastures.

Speak to the mountain that opposes you and keeps you from fulfilling what God has for you. Decree it removed and cast it down, with no doubt or unbelief. Then you will live in resurrection power, with no obstruction to your experiencing a joyful life of worship and praise to Yahweh, who is more than enough for all your needs. Rejoice in the Lord!

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
(Psalm 139:14-16 NIV)

God Keeps His Promises

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Quit analyzing your problems and start visualizing your victory.
Time to retire from dreaming the dream, to living God’s dream for your life.

Rainbow in the sky and it hasn’t even rained, means God will still fulfill his promises, even in a dry season.
God is Faithful and always Faithful to keep his promises.

Light Reigns!

by Hazel Straub

God of all provision, speaks and it happens. He speaks into the darkness and says,” Let there be light and it is light.” (Genesis 1:3)

God created us in his likeness We have the power of life or death in what we say. (Proverbs 18:21) Agree with God and speak light into the darkness that wants to overtake you, your children, your place of employment, your city, your nation. Decree: “Let there be light.” Light reigns!

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5 ESV)

Just Believe!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It’s not about where you’ve been but where you’re going.
It’s Not what you have but whom you have in your life
Not about your skills and ability
But what God can do through your humility.

Not about the points or the final score
But about you doing your best and seeking for more.
Not about Bout all knowledge and all collegiate degrees
But revelation of who you are and in the mirror who you see.

It’s not about how it seems, but that you simply, believe

Well Spoken Words

by Hazel Straub

Choosing our words carefully, turns them golden and adorned with silver. Our words will then be cherished. When we receive wise correction, humbly, it makes us better and adorns our life with beauty.

A well-spoken word at just the right moment
is like golden apples in settings of silver.
To an attentive ear, constructive criticism from a truly wise person
is like an earring or jewelry made of fine gold.

(Proverbs 25:11-12 Voice)
