Time To Change!

by Hazel Straub

Holy Spirit wants to complete a spiritual makeover on you. This is a new season and it requires a new mindset. Put on the mind of Christ! He examines our hearts and what we constantly think and rehearse in out minds. This examination brings stinging heart conviction, to cause us to change the way we think and act.

There is a clarion call, to leave the past hurts and the ancestral sins that mar our thinking and lives. Some thought patterns are idols that get more of our time, attention, and reinforcing thoughts than Jesus our Savior, who purchased all we need to live an abundant life.

Holy Spirit calls for us live victoriously, bubbling with love, light, and life. No longer living with a poverty spirit but as royalty. Jesus purchased all we need for wholeness and completeness. Receive it!

The fresh winds of Heaven blow and call for you to unfurl your sails and go in a new direction, where you have never been. Change!

Pass On God’s Goodness

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God will give anything to you that he can get through you. We are called to be Imitators of God, ambassadors for Christ, sons, led by the Spirit of God. Whatever, he does to us, we are supposed to do for others. He has been merciful, so we should release mercy. He has comforted us, so we should comfort others, etc.

Do you want Yahweh to treat you the way you treat those who’ve wronged you? I surely don’t. The Word declares forgive us our trespasses, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US. Did you know when you’re praying that you are asking Yahweh, “To treat you the way you treat people?”

Regardless, of how we are treated, we have to give an account for our actions, in how we respond or react to it. Can they see the reflection of Christ in your character, attitude, emotions, workload, and relationships? It is essential to be exemplary of Christ. The only way we can achieve this is walking in love, forgiveness, and enduring the chastening of The Lord.

Speak To Your Challenges

by Hazel Straub

Do you have some challenges in your life that are huge mountains? Negative thinking, addictive behavior, worries over provision, family problems,  job issues, sickness, relationship difficulties, or deep hurts? Do your mountains speak to you, or do you speak to your mountain? Do you complain about your mountain and make it larger? Do you empower or impoverish the mountain in your life with your tongue?

Jesus tells us to speak to the mountain and tell it to be removed. When we do not doubt, believe what we say, the mountain will obey our voice,  and will be thrown into the sea. Our speech carries life or death. Take dominion and rule over the mountain of problems, instead of letting it dominate and rule you! You and your mouth are powerful!

Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done. This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours. (Mark 11:23-24 TPT)

Your Thoughts Determine Your Actions

by Hazel Straub

Our thought life determines our actions. What we spend time repeatedly thinking about, comes out of us. Resentment, offense and anger brings fights, bitterness and murder. Worry, fear, and negativity results in depression, defeat and insomnia.

Reading and thinking about Bible passages that talk about Jesus, our Redeemer, changes us. When we think on how he gave his life for us, that results in our salvation, deliverance, healing and peace that passes understanding, we enjoy life, including the challenges. His love and forgiveness changes us, on the inside. His care and concern gives us peace.

Thankful and giving praise to God, for Jesus, our Lord and Savior and his Holy Spirit that transforms us!

So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always. Follow the example of all that we have imparted to you and the God of peace will be with you in all things. (Philippians 4:8-9 TPT)

Know Your Identity!

by Hazel Straub

God is resetting you. The definition of reset includes to turn a computer or device of and then on, to make it start to work correctly. To change the position on controls such as to reset the microwave clock. Or to change the details, as in changing your password.

You are reset to function, knowing your true identity. The Lord wants you to change your mind and get the mind of Christ. As a believer, you live in Christ and receive his identity. Get to know Jesus and you will know who you are. You are a new creation! No longer shackled by the past and stuck in a rut.

It is not what comes from the outside to attack you that causes the problems but the beliefs you believe. Through Christ you are a child of God. He has adopted you and this is your new identity.

God resets and strips you of your old identity, as he washes the dirt of wrong thinking and puts wax on you like a car. We live in Jesus. His light and love transforms us.

All glory and praise to Father God and Jesus, who brought us out of darkness into his marvelous light!

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! ( 2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT)

Encouragement For The Discouraged

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Our “going through’s” lead us to our “growing through’s.” Then this leads us to our “getting to’s,” of what Yahweh ordained for us.

Prayer For Heart Transformation

by Hazel Straub

Father God, explore, examine and shine your light on my thought life, my motivations, meditations, desires, emotions, character, reflections, and the plans of my heart. I turn from deceit, wickedness, and stubborn rebellion. No longer ruled by the desires of the flesh, I choose to give my life and heart to you, Lord.

Cleanse me in the blood of Jesus. Renew a right spirit in me. Remove my stony, stubborn, selfish heart and give me a tender heart of flesh that responds quickly to Holy Spirit conviction.

Thank you for a heart transformation! A heart fully surrendered and given to Christ. I glorify you with my life. A life saturated with your love and forgiveness.

Amen

“The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful,
a puzzle that no one can figure out.
But I, God, search the heart
and examine the mind.
I get to the heart of the human.
I get to the root of things.
I treat them as they really are,
not as they pretend to be.” (Jeremiah 17:9-10 MSG)

Worship God Despite The Circumstances

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego said, “Our God is able to deliver us, but even if he doesn’t, we still will not bow and worship the golden image.” This is worship with no compromise. Even if God doesn’t do what we want him to, we should worship him because of who He is in our hearts; not just for what He’s placed within our hands.

Disregard the fiery furnace and how heated it may become, or how long you’ve been waiting, and worship with “no compromise,” just because, Jehovah Sabaoth is able to deliver.

Yahweh Our Provider, Protection And Shepherd

by Hazel Straub

When fear comes to rob you of peace, meditate and think about Yahweh, our wonderful Shepherd, who provides, sustains and protects us. We enjoy abundance of love, joy, provision, refreshment and restoration, in his presence.

Yahweh, the God of my present, I AM WHO I AM, is my Shepherd (protector, provider, leader), my Friend, who takes care of me. I will not lack anything and I will succeed. He causes me to rest and relax, with no fear of predators or starvation. My home is fresh green pastures, where I eat my fill, in safety.

Yahweh, gently and carefully leads me, he sustains me and protects me, so I can settle down and rest without fear. He provides abundantly for me, with water, food, shelter, and all I need because he is my Shepherd and Friend. He protects me from all my enemies.

When I am out of breath, Yahweh restores me and leads me in the correct direction, due to his excellent character and reputation. He leads me to a beautiful place, of restoration.

In addition to this, when I travel through a deep dark narrow gorge, covered in the shadow of the dead, I will not be afraid of bad things, because Yahweh is right besides me, with his staff of correction and his walking stick for support. They give me a sigh of relief and my soul is consoled.

Yahweh will put in order and arrange a meal, spread out on a table, in front of my face. Boldly, he shows this in front of my enemy, who presses in on me and is jealous of me. He will anoint my head with perfumed olive oil. My holdings and possessions will abundantly overflow, to fill all my needs. The enemy will realize he cannot conquer me because Yahweh, my Shepherd, is with me.

Yahweh will never let me down because I follow him. The Shepherd, always provides and cares for me. Bountiful, beautiful things and kindness chases after every follower, all the days of of our lives. I remain living in the palace of Yahweh. (Psalm 23 Translation from Ancient Hebrew)
