God Watches Over You!

by Hazel Straub

No matter what emotions you feel, God loves each one and has angels working on your behalf. Many times we walk through life and do not realize how many times our lives are spared. Even in difficult times, God’s protective hand works on your behalf, even though you might not perceive it.

The enemy of our souls, according to Jesus in John 10:10, comes to steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus gives us life more abundantly. He preserves us in the midst of a pandemic, from evil, and provides us with his tender care. Our lives are preserved, until our earth is completed.

Thank you Daddy God, for your tender care and for sending angels to protect and preserve us!

Are not all the angels ministering spirits sent out [by God] to serve (accompany, protect) those who will inherit salvation? [Of course they are!] (Hebrews 1:14 AMP)

And Suddenly…

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

and SUDDENLY it Came to Pass. (Isaiah 48:3)

God has some SUDDENLIES coming from the HEAVENLIES to you!

I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

Facing Difficulties?

by Hazel Straub

Seasons mark our life with variety, filled with joy, celebration, trials, sadness, and hope. When it seems that we experience the bitter, God always gives us his sweet love and mercy. If we experience health challenges, we cry out to him and the sweetness of his comforting healing presence, envelops us. Our relationships may crumble, when friends leave us, the sweetness of close friendship with Jesus counters the bitter. Losing one’s job and experiencing provision from unexpected sources, show the bitter with the sweet of God My Provider. Even bitter herbs, improve digestion, calm inflammation and bring healing.

Although the pressure might be severe, it causes the character of Jesus to develop. Diamonds are formed under great pressure and pearls form from irritants. Rejoice, the bitter works for your good and makes you beautiful inside and outside, so Jesus shines from you!

Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. (James 1:2-4 MSG)

God’s Blessings And Favor

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Thank Yahweh that all the blessings and favor he placed on your life, is not predicated on the jealous hearts, grudge holdings, toxic emotions, negative opinions, derogatory remarks, pharisaical judgments, false assumptions, false accusations, and destructive criticisms of others. Some people act, as if they have the patent, on Yahweh blessing you. Please, don’t put anyone in the place where only God is supposed to be. You cannot help it that God FAVORS You because HE LOVES YOU…Selah

Tempted To Quit?

by Hazel Straub

It is easy to get discouraged but if you don’t quit you win. Some resign prematurely, thinking that God won’t forgive or use them because of past failures. They then fail to press into God. Persist, get up, and continue, focus on Jesus not your issues. He is your help, strength, and refuge. He gives you new vision to conquer fear and his grace is sufficient for today.

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.(2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT)

What Breeds Selfishness, Entitlement And Discredit?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

There’s a spirit called over familiarity, it breeds the spirit of entitlement, selfishness, unthankfulness, and can cause one to discredit or devalue what one is given or whom is giving it.

Yahweh says, “Many want to hear a Word but few desire to believe the Word. Obey the Word, or even War in prayer concerning the Word, due to a spirit of over familiarity.”

God doesn’t owe you, we owe Him. He doesn’t have to bless you, he desires to bless you. One of the root causes of the lack of passion and fervency, in our receptivity, of the Word is some have become over familiar and therefore, have no attitude of gratitude but a sentiment of entitlement.

Who Is God’s Favorite Child?

by Hazel Straub

Who is God’s favorite child? You are his favorite child! His eyes twinkle with delight and his face creases in laughter, as he gazes at you. His love rescues you from hopelessness and despair. Restoration of your life, comes through receiving and trusting in his love, expressed through his son, Yeshua the Messiah. Rest in his marvelous healing, transforming love!

The light of God’s love shined within us when he sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through him.  This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins. (1 John 4:9-1- TPT)

We call everything in your life into His apostolic governmental authority.

Make Your Life A Prayer!

by Hazel Straub

What is your reaction to lockdown, problems, challenges, and opposition? Do you complain and wonder why it is happening to you? Or do you praise the Lord and rejoice in him, despite troubles? When things go well, we take life for granted and may become complacent. Difficulties make us uncomfortable, exposes the lie and illusion that we are self-sufficient. Pain and hardship cause us to cry to God, in desperation. No one and nothing can satisfy us except God. He will fulfill all his promises and turns the ugly to good. Pray constantly, rejoice in the Lord, and give thanks to God, in everything!

My cry today: Lord, thank you for your loving kindness to me. Thank you that you are with me during my trials and are my help and refuge. Only you can satisfy my hunger and without you, I perish. More of you and less of me! All the glory is yours! Thank you for bringing good from what was meant for evil. I rejoice in you God, my salvation and strength! Amen

Make your life a prayer.  And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-19 TPT)

Worship By Exposing Your Heart

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Deliberate Worshipers expose what’s in their hearts allowing the Father to heal their issues, thus becoming more intimate with the Father. While impulsive worshipers hide what’s in their hearts, refusing to deal with their issues, preventing them from becoming intimate with the Father. God wants your heart in worship not just worship…

Yahweh, I Love You!

by Hazel Straub

Struggling and wondering if you will make it? Although the season has difficulties, you are not alone! No matter how the enemy tries to discourage and defeat you, when you cry to Yahweh for help, he strengthens, sustains, and saves. He hears and answers our cries with tender love and help. Praise his name!

(Song of David written after Yahweh had delivered him from his many enemies , including Saul.)

I love you, O Yahweh, my strength.
Yahweh is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call upon Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.

The Call Of God On Your Life

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You are only one door and one person away from where Yahweh desires to take you today. Your God-given desires and dreams are Yahweh’s desires and dreams also. Therefore, you’re not alone, Yahweh is working with you and not against.

Never underestimate the power of God in your life. What he has placed in you is inevitable, incredible and indestructible. You must See, Recognize, and Embrace the call of God on your life. He is married to his word inside of you and he doesn’t want a divorce. He is obligated to fulfill his word to you. However, it is imperative that you believe and concur with the best of the blessed that he has ordained for You and be an ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN YOUR MAGNANIMOUS DESTINY! Those that oppose are irrelevant. Yahweh has motioned it, Yeshua has seconded it, and the Holy Spirit confirms it. Yahweh says, “I have you, and we are in Favor of you, and the motion is carried out Today!”

Afraid? Fear Not!

by Hazel Straub

Does it appear that the world is spinning out of control, with the pandemic and its fallout? Good news for believers in Jesus, as their Redeemer and Lord! Your life is hidden, in Christ Jesus and you live in him, where you enjoy victory. Everything that comes against you, has to go through him first, before it comes to you. He sifts all that comes into your life, through his hands of love. His love makes you secure, despite the negativity swirling around you.

In difficult times, keep your eyes fixed on him and his love for you. He conquered the enemy of our soul and his victory is our victory. No matter the hardship, he goes with you, to the other side. You prevail through trying times!

So it comes down to this: since you have been raised with the Anointed One, the Liberating King, set your mind on heaven above. The Anointed is there, seated at God’s right hand. Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things, because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God. On that day when the Anointed One—who is our very life—is revealed, you will be revealed with Him in glory! (Colossians 3:1-4 The Voice)

My heart of love, beats for you, my wonderful bride. Thoughts of you fill me with delight and laughter. Redeemed with my blood, and resurrected from deadness, into abundant life. Dance, to the rhythm of my heart, in joyful praise!

Let them praise his name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourines and harp! (Psalm 149:3 NET)

Quick To Listen

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The most valuable thing to a dictatorship is “talking” but the most valuable thing to a relationship is “listening.”
It’s more successful to listen now gaining understanding, than misunderstand later for failure of listening.
May there be more emphasis on “listening” to the Father and talking less than more emphasis on talking to the Father and listening less.

Pride has a tendency of talking a lot, but Love has a tendency of “listening more.”
Father, forgive me for talking so much when I pray, help me to “listen more” to learn your ways…
God is always speaking, we should always be “listening…”
To listen is strength, to talk is energy.
A very essential part of our worship is to “listen” not only to God but to each other. “Listen.”

Your Mind – Stronghold Of Your Destiny!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Monitor and watch what you dwell your royal mind on. Wherever your mind goes, the rest of you will eventually follow. When you change your mind, you change your course.

In Acts 26:2, the Apostle Paul, told King Agrippa, “I think myself happy…” Well, if you can think yourself depressed, you can definitely think yourself happy. The word think in this text means to lead, to bring, to drive, to account, esteem, to judge of rule over.

What you think about, you bring about. Your mind is royally powerful, because one thought in your mind, could hinder or cause you to fulfill your extravagant destiny. Therefore, we have to monitor or govern what we dwell our royal minds on.

Holy Spirit, lead us into all Truth, bring us into fresh revelation and supernatural governmental wisdom. Esteem us with your glory, your heart, and your character attributes. Judge us with your love. We desire Your thoughts to rule over us. Stimulated and motivated by the Glory of You.

Meditate on this today till you become consumed with, “I have planned your life to be prosperous and peacefully good, to give you a great promising future. Your life has been divinely designed to be ecstatically good, purposely favored, and supernaturally effective. I love you so intimately, that I know where every piece of you has been scattered, and am bringing you together again to make you every whit whole. I always have more freedom to release to you, if you always have more mercy to release to others. My plans and My thoughts towards you are good, to do my good pleasure, to open my great treasure, and to perform my good word towards you, causing you to return to the place I created just for You.

If you stop thinking and speaking about things you don’t desire in your present, they will no longer exist in your future. Your mind is the stronghold of your destiny, or the speed bump towards your past. Be supernaturally validated and fortified to renew and rebuild it with Truth, Virtue, and Perfect Peace, one thought at a time. Give me your mind, and I will give you the world.

Embrace Change With Joy!

by Hazel Straub

Do you love change or do you cling to old familiar habits? Here in the Far North of Alaska, we are in a season of change. The ice on the river that runs through our city broke up on Tuesday night. The river channel that had been frozen for months was suddenly high and flowing with ice bergs. Then a river that it flows into, broke up today and has the ice flowing down stream. It is a welcome sight but may involve some flooding, if there are ice jams. Through the years, they have found that the thickness of the ice does not determine when break up will come. We welcome the mess of break up because summer will soon follow. Boats can traverse the river systems and bring goods to isolated communities. It is no longer dark at night and the sunshine changes everything. Even though it snowed today, the ice is breaking up and the snow is quickly melting. It is time to embrace the change!

In the same way, Jesus brings sunshine to our hearts and even the hardest of hearts can change when his love shines on us. Light brings new life and God’s love changes us. Our God is love, light, life, mercy and grace. Before we knew him, Jesus gave his life for us so we could enjoy breakthrough of self defeating patterns and constant mistakes, as we receive him into our lives. He brings change that allows the biggest problems to go like ice in the Springtime. The fire of love of God expressed in Jesus, brings healing and great joy! Look to Jesus and experience new life.

But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy. (Malachi 4:2 AMPC)

What Is The Motivation Secret?

by Hazel Straub

Ever done something good and found it fell flat? You did the right thing but your heart was not in it. The secret ingredient to all that you do is love. If you serve, let love motivate you. When you give, interact with others, work, speak, pray, or read the Bible, have your actions seasoned with love. It changes everything!

Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do. (1Corinthians 16:14 TPT)

Living Water!

by Hazel Straub

Behold—God is my salvation!
    I am confident, unafraid, and I will trust in you.”
Yes! The Lord Yah is my might and my melody;
    he has become my salvation!
 With triumphant joy you will drink deeply
    from the wells of salvation.
(Isaiah 12:2-3 TPT)

Rejoice because Jesus is our salvation. Trust God and know he sent Jesus, as our Redeemer. When we know Jesus, we know the God of our salvation. We have Jesus living inside of us, and out of us flows living water. We are not alone, he is with us, and we trust him.

Sing and rejoice because Jesus is our Salvation! He gives us living water!

Bad start to your day? Change your focus and take a praise break. Thank God for his love, kindness, light, and blessings in your life. Then view the circumstances through eyes of faith. Remember, you have a choice on what you focus your attention.

Raise your praise to God, and enjoy his presence. Refocus!

But You are holy,
Enthroned in the praises of Israel.
Our fathers trusted in You;
They trusted, and You delivered them.

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Let nothing stop you, from fulfilling what Yahweh placed in your heart or told you, directly. After all, it’s not what you’re eating but what’s eating you. It’s not your weight but what’s weighing you down. Sometimes, we are wanting to deal with everyone and everything else, but not wanting to deal with ourselves…Selah

Christ Our Hidden Treasure

by Hazel Straub

Dear Friends, today I am praying this Scripture over you:

I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric. This will give you access to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ. For our spiritual wealth is in him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge.

 I want you to know this so that no one will come and lead you into error through their persuasive arguments and clever words.  Even though I’m separated from you geographically, my spirit is present there with you. And I’m overjoyed to see how disciplined and deeply committed you are because you have such a solid faith in Christ, the Anointed One.  In the same way you received Jesus our Lord and Messiah by faith, continue your journey of faith, progressing further into your union with him!  Your spiritual roots go deeply into his life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to him! (Colossians 2:2-7 TPT)

Amen

Issues Of The Heart

Great Change Is On Us!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We the Bride of Christ, are in a new place and great change is upon us.

Previously, the church was like the woman with the issue of blood for twelve years, suffering many things and not getting better. The woman had spent all she had but could not be healed.

She said within herself, “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be made whole.”
Immediately, after pressing her way through the crowd and touching the hem of Jesus’ garment, her blood stanched, she was made whole.

The church has been in the same position or spiritual stupor, preventing her from being intimate with the bridegroom because of her many issues. We have tried many programs, systems of man, and substitutes, for the pure glory of God. Nonetheless, the tables have turned, we have been shifted from the old, and our place has changed. Touching the hem of his garment and not what we’ve sewn together. She is allowing God to deal with the issues of her heart, so she can be intimate with the bridegroom. The church is no longer stooped over but she is standing in the presence of the King. The touching of Jesus’ hem brought wholeness. God is setting in order everything we need to be whole and complete. (Mark 5:24-28)

Spring Brings Change

by Hazel Straub

Spring brings the hope of new life, after a long winter, here in Alaska. What appeared to be cold and lifeless, has signs of new life. The daylight increases rapidly and gives off more warmth. and what was frozen for months starts to melt. We had a record snow storm a few weeks ago, then record breaking cold with a low of -27 F. However, this did not last and within 12 hours the temperature rose a total of 67 degrees F. The snow that had remained since October, started melting and birds’ songs were heard. Although snow still remains on the ground, it is leaving and summer is coming! Snow cannot resist the sun shining.

There are times when we look at our circumstances and think the things we find uncomfortable, will never change. However, there is always a time of change. What appears dead in winter begins to show new life. As we turn our eyes to God and express our gratitude, praise and worship, we enjoy his presence. He wants us to trust him, and gives us peace, as our imagination is filled with his love and goodness to us, throughout all the seasons. No matter what our circumstances, he is always with us, loves and cares for us. His love never fails, it melts frozen hearts, no matter the season!

Perfect, absolute peace surrounds those
whose imaginations are consumed with you;
they confidently trust in you.
(Isaiah 26:3 TPT)

Yahweh Kissed My Heart With Forgiveness

by Hazel Straub

The love of Yahweh for us is truly amazing. David expressed his feelings of worship to Yahweh in this psalm, which we can all identify. Join me in praise and worship to Yahweh!

With my whole heart, with my whole life,
    and with my innermost being, and with my innermost being,
    I bow in wonder and love before you, the holy God!
Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration.
    How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness
    you’ve done for me?
You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done.
    You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease.
You’ve rescued me from hell and saved my life.
    You’ve crowned me with love and mercy.
You satisfy my every desire with good things.
    You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again.

Receive God’s Love

by Hazel Straub

God is love. One of the benefits of experiencing a close relationship with Daddy God is receiving his love. You are his child, who is well loved. Then love will be a constant stream pouring out love, to others. You give the love you receive to others. Your love for others will transform others.

Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8 TPT)

Breakout!

Chains Broken

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I see BREAKOUT!

I had a prophetic vision of a heart breaking and bursting forth, out of these huge clutches (representing the enemy).

God is breaking you out of the clutches of your past. The places where you were held captive in your mind. (God is giving you freeing thoughts.) The places in your emotions that were raped by the enemy. (God is healing the memories.) A breaking out of the mold or box that the enemy formed for you. (God is loosing you into destiny.)

The spirit of Pharoah has been broken over you, you will complete the tasks, you will fulfill the call, and you will go further than your past. The sweet oil of my presence is healing what words can’t convey. I am the Heart-Changer, and I’m causing your heart to break out of walls of trauma, walls of fear, walls of hurt, walls of deception, and walls of the past. Breakout into Freedom.

Pursue The Dream

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The dreams God gave you are real. Please don’t allow life and the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy your destiny. If you’ve tried the possible and the possible ain’t working, then it’s time to do the impossible. No matter how farfetched it may seem, pursue the Dream.

Undoubtedly,

Dream Giver

God Works On Your Behalf

by Hazel Straub

Upset that God has not done what you desired, to right evil? You asked in believing prayer and await your answer. God wants everyone to know that he alone will get the credit, in his answer. When the children of Israel were delivered from slavery in Egypt, they had groaned with the hard labor and poor treatment. At the right time, God delivered them. On the surface it did not look promising. They left Egypt and had Pharaoh and his army pursuing them. The Red Sea was in front of them and the army behind them. God performed a miracle and parted the sea, so everyone could walk through the sea on dry ground. When the Egyptians tried to do the same thing, God fought against them. The people were told they would not see the ones who were cruel taskmasters again. Then the Red Sea closed over Pharaoh and his army, where they perished.

God supernaturally provided for the children of Israel, giving water, food, clothing and help. All the nations in the area, heard how God cared for his people, how he fought for them, and the miracles he performed for them. Not only did the Israelites rejoice but fear of God came on the nations. God got all the glory, instead of man. He does the same thing, today. When God delivers us from evil, everyone knows it is God’s wondrous might that delivers us from hopelessness. He gets all the glory not man. Do not get discouraged, God is working on your behalf, in his timing, not yours.

Rahab told the Israelite spies in Jericho:  “I know the Lord has given you this land,” she told them. “We are all afraid of you. Everyone in the land is living in terror. For we have heard how the Lord made a dry path for you through the Red Sea when you left Egypt. And we know what you did to Sihon and Og, the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan River, whose people you completely destroyed.  No wonder our hearts have melted in fear! No one has the courage to fight after hearing such things. For the Lord your God is the supreme God of the heavens above and the earth below. (Joshua 2:9-11 NLT)

Agree With God

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Believe in yourself like God believes in you. No one can believe in you, like you can believe in you, and make it happen. You must believe it or nothing will happen.  

What Jesus did on the cross for you is enough. He values you and his love is unconditional. Agree with God!

Have Faith In God!

by Hazel Straub

Feeling discouraged? Wondering if you will make it through the storm? You are not alone, God is with you and sustains you. It is darkest before dawn, when the sun breaks through, dispelling the darkness. The battle is fierce before victory. God wants our full trust, faith, and focus to be on him, not in our circumstances. He is faithful, full of grace and mercy. Have faith in God and do not give up!

And then, after your brief suffering, the God of all loving grace, who has called you to share in his eternal glory in Christ, will personally and powerfully restore you and make you stronger than ever. Yes, he will set you firmly in place and build you up. (1 Peter 5:10 TPT)

Victor Or Victim?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It doesn’t really matter what people say about you. What really matters is what God says about you. It doesn’t matter what people think about you. What really matters is what God thinks about you.

It doesn’t matter how people see you. What matters the most is how you see yourself. Take back the power of your vision and see yourself as the VICTOR, not the victim.

The Value Of God’s Authority

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Never underestimate the power, the authority, and the value of God’s Approval on your life. His Approval outweighs every disapproval you’ve ever experienced in your life…Selah

Your Thoughts Chart Your Actions

by Hazel Straub

What you make the focus of your thoughts, will come out in your actions. If you constantly worry or think about your problems, you will spiral downwards. It is so important to renew your mind and change your focus. How can this happen? Mediate on the truth found in the Word of God and his faithfulness.

When you think constantly on the promises of God, fear leaves. Renewal of your mind happens as you think how God is with you. His word is a light to our path, changes us from within, and gives us life. Our thoughts gravitate to God and we gain greater clarity in hearing his voice. Blessings pursue the ones who think on the Word, listen, and obey God’s voice.

Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete. (Romans 12:2 VOICE)

Deliver Me!

The Spirit Of Self

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The Lord has revealed to me, the spirit of self, in the life of many believers, which is the spirit of division.  One is divided against oneself, always second guessing themselves or what God is saying to them. The spirit of division, hinders and retards you or stops you from fulfilling God’s Vision for your life. Usually, it happens due to the enemy’s deathblow to the mind, through some negative word curse, bad situation, or trauma in the past. This is always a blockage and hindrance to hearing the voice of the Lord. Oftentimes, it makes the person blind or thinking the worse of themselves and the best in others.

For instance, if you’re always hearing the enemy say, “You can’t hear God.” Then the truth is, “You can hear God, and that you’re going to have a greater anointing in that area.”

If you’ve received several prophetic words about the same thing, don’t let it become a reproach or bitter to you, this only means you’re going to have a greater anointing, in that area when it materializes.

In Jesus’ name, I apostolically dissannull and destroy every demonic covenant in your life of self and division, and say to you, your sins are forgiven. Therefore, I stand with the Father and the Son today, and I break the power of self, which is the spirit of division, divided against yourself. Self division will no longer be your portion. But God is giving you His vision, supernatural imagery, mental images, prophetic dreams, and freeing thoughts and Words, that will bring wholeness and healing to your person. Resurrection Power and Revelation Life is flooding your perceptions and entire being. We break the curse of the worse, off your life, (all the way back to Adam and Eve). We decree you the Blessed by the Best in Jesus’ miraculous name. The curses go back to the third and fourth generations, but the blessings go forward for a thousand generations. No more double mindedness but singleness of heart and mind. You are no longer divided against yourself but in agreement and oneness with God and his thoughts concerning you (Jeremiah 29:11-13).

As the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit are one in purpose, I decree and declare YOU ARE ONE IN PURPOSE WITH YOURSELF AND HEAVEN. God’s Unity, is your New Unity.

Faith Sight

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You know you are really living by Faith, when you keep believing HIS WORD, even when you see no evidence in the world. I pray your Faith be increased in God and all your Faith become sight, today.

Discover The Gifts Inside You!

by Hazel Straub

Everything we could ever need for life and godliness has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to him through a glorious manifestation of his goodness. (2 Peter 1:3 TPT)

It is truly amazing that God has supplied us with everything we need for life and living godly. He gave us gifts and allows us to know him as our Daddy, who loves us. Many times we fail to unwrap the gifts he placed inside of us because we don’t spend time in his love letter to us, the Bible, that will renew our mind. Also we do not get to know him personally and live in his presence. He calls us by name and will tell us why he placed us on earth at this time. He sent his one and only Son to lay down his life for our sins, so we could live forgiven, have a close relationship with our true Daddy, discover our gifts, while we fulfill our purpose. Spend time with him, unwrap the gifts he placed inside of you and get to know him.

Daddy God, make me hungry for your Word and your presence. Let the joy of knowing you, who calls me by my name, make me hungry to devour your Word, and bask in your loving presence. I want to really know you, not just about you. Thank you for your goodness to me. It is my desire to know you and to unwrap all the gifts you placed inside of me. Your goodness that manifests in my life is incredible. My desire is to know you! Thank you for your incredible love through your Son Jesus!

Amen

Resurrecting Life Of Jesus Christ

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I speak the resurrecting life of Jesus Christ, into the depths of your spirit. I break open the depths of your spirit, for the deep of HIS SPIRIT. Yahweh is wooing you and calling you to the place of rest, underneath his wings.

Trust in his Trust, Rest in his Rest, and Be Loved by his Love! For he is wrapping his arms around you, never to refrain. He is blissfully blessing and kissing you with peace. He is causing you to experience divine moments steeped in his favor.

Jehovah is speaking, on your behalf today, making noise in the ears of your enemies, and working the unfavorable, in your favor. The Holy Spirit is ushering you to a deeper place of intimacy with Him. Freedom rings in your weak and shackled places.

The Fire of His love, melts and disintegrates the walls within. Healing flows to your hurt and wounded areas. Grace supernaturally energizes you and gives you supernatural ability to do what you can’t do on your own.

Be still and know that He is God. Still yourself, quiet yourself, rest your mind, and listen. As His presence stills and calms your soul, like the wind blowing through the trees, like the water flowing as the streams, and like the birds singing sweetly and effervescently.

Yahweh says, “I have the answers, simply take time to listen. I have so much to reveal, if only you be still. Know that I’m on your side and will never let you go. I will cause there to be a clear way and a free flow. You have the unction of the Holy One, who gives you the ability to know all things. Come, cry out to Me, and I will show you great and mighty things, things you’ve never dreamed, things you’ve never seen…I desire to do greater than greater for you, because
I love you,”

Your Daddy God

Embrace The Greater Glory!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You can’t experience the Glory of the new,  until you quit rehearsing the past and over indulging in the moves of the old. Thank God for what he did back then but embrace the new and greater Glory he is releasing upon your life. Whatever your circumstances today, I decree your latter shall be greater!

In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the Lord by the prophet Haggai, saying, Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying, Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the Lord; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the Lord, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord of hosts: According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.

For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts. (Haggai 2:1-9 KJV)

Timeless Truth!

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to die to ourselves and to live for Christ. Death to our selfishness is not a  popular topic but we are called to die to ourselves, (our fleshly desires) daily, take up our cross, and follow Jesus. This results in dying to our flesh with its pride, stubbornness, rebellion, passions, lusts and desires.

Seeds have to die and lose their personal identity, to release the power inside. A small acorn when planted in soil, dies and eventually becomes a huge oak tree with many acorns. An apple seed dies to its seed form and becomes an apple tree filled with hundreds of apples that have many seeds.

Jesus laid down his life and died so we and untold others would live. When we follow him and die to our flesh, Jesus gets the glory and many come into the kingdom of God. Never despise small beginnings!

He replied to them, “Now is the time for the Son of Man to be glorified.  Let me make this clear: A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies. Because then it sprouts and produces a great harvest of wheat—all because one grain died. “The person who loves his life and pampers himself will miss true life! But the one who detaches his life from this world and abandons himself to me, will find true life and enjoy it forever! If you want to be my disciple, follow me and you will go where I am going. And if you truly follow me as my disciple, the Father will shower his favor upon your life. (John 12:23-26 TPT)

Heart Worship While In Change

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Don’t get lost in the process of change. Sometimes results are immediate, sometimes gradual, but both are a part, of the process of change. Ultimately, during the process, the Father desires us to keep crying out for Him. Our dependency should be of Him and not ourselves. We must cry out to our Father who loves and yearns for us to be with Him.

Even when we don’t understand what God is doing, we still owe Him our hearts in worship.

Fear-False Evidence Appearing Real

by Hazel Straub

Fear is false evidence appearing real. The antidote for fear is the love of God. He is with you and will not leave you. He goes with you through the challenges and trials of life. When you go through the water he is with you and you will not drown. When you walk through fire, you will not burn for he is with you. (Isaiah 43:2)

Trust God and not the false evidence that would paralyze you, keeping you bound. Fear flees when you rest in God. Spend time enjoying his love and know you are secure.

Do not yield to fear, for I am always near.
    Never turn your gaze from me, for I am your faithful God.
    I will infuse you with my strength
    and help you in every situation.
    I will hold you firmly with my victorious right hand.’
“All who rage against you will be ashamed and disgraced.
    All who contend with you will perish and disappear.
You will look for your enemies in vain;
    those who war against you will vanish without a trace!
 I am Yahweh, your mighty God!
    I grip your right hand and won’t let you go!
    I whisper to you:
    ‘Don’t be afraid; I am here to help you!’ (
Isaiah 41:10-13 TPT)

Trust And Rest In God

by Hazel Straub

Have you desired emotional support, when you were going through difficulties? Did you wonder where your support was? At times, your life routines will crumble, so your only reliable alternative is complete reliance on Daddy God, for his support and help. No longer trusting in the natural or your own ability to cope but solely resting on the Lord our God.

Flesh and natural strength fails but God is our refuge, strength and support. He never fails or abandons but stays close. His presence is dependable and your refuge from the storm. Rest and believe he will be with you, no matter what the circumstances. Your place of strength, is resting in the loving kindness, mercy, and grace of God.

God is our shelter and our strength.
When troubles seem near, God is nearer, and He’s ready to help.
So why run and hide?
No fear, no pacing, no biting fingernails.
When the earth spins out of control, we are sure and fearless.
When mountains crumble and the waters run wild, we are sure and fearless.
Even in heavy winds and huge waves,
or as mountains shake, we are sure and fearless.
(Psalms 46:1-3 VOICE)

God Gives Us Victory!

by Hazel Straub

Have the pressure and concerns of this life caused you to groan? God hears your pain, even when you do not call out to him. This is the Passover season when the children of Israel were in bondage in Egypt. God heard their pain and delivered them out of slavery, unfair treatment, having their children murdered. and more. A lamb that was without spot or blemish was killed, for each household, the blood put over the doorway, and the whole lamb eaten. The death angel passed over the houses that had the lamb’s blood on it. The other households lost their first born sons and the Israelites were allowed to leave Egypt and were given gold, silver, and garments, making them wealthy as they left. The king and his army pursued them but God miraculously delivered the Israelites and they saw their enemies no more. They all ate the Passover lamb and not one of them was sick after 400 years of slavery. Jesus is our Passover Lamb and is causing us to pass over into victory and our destinies.

Then God struck down their firstborn sons,
    the pride and joy of every Egyptian family.
At last, God freed all the Hebrews from their slavery
    and sent them away laden with the silver and gold of Egypt.
    And not even one was feeble on their way out!
 Egypt was relieved at their exodus, ready to see them go,
    for the terror of the Lord of the Hebrews had fallen upon them!
(Psalm 105:36-38 TPT)

It was an impossible situation and God gave the victory. Today, we all have challenges that we face. The only way we overcome is to know that God is with us and he never leaves or forsakes us. His presence goes with us and he is our deliverer, redeemer, and savior. It is not the time to concentrate on the problems. Know that nothing is impossible for God. He is on your side and as you look to him, he will deliver you. Trust and believe him. Keep your focus on his presence. God desires to take you across the raging river into the promises he has for you. With you following God and his presence you will have victory over every circumstance that has tormented you in the past. Even as Pharaoh and his army pursued the Israelites to bring them back into slavery, God had the last word and the enemy perished in the sea. God gives you victory over what appears too strong. God gives us the victory! Rejoice!

Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the LORD: “I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea. The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him— my father’s God, and I will exalt him! (Exodus 15:1-2 NLT)
