Ready For Sudden Change?

by Hazel Straub

Are you ready for change? Frustrated and waiting for more of God, in your life? The disciples of Jesus had watched him ascend into heaven, after he told them to wait in Jerusalem, until they received power from on High. Jesus had given his life, was buried and resurrected on the third day. He had appeared to many after his resurrection, including his disciples.

Waiting is difficult, especially when you do not know the time something will happen. There were about 120 disciples meeting in unity, praying and seeking God. The eleven disciples of Jesus, who were close to him, had all deserted him at the crucifixion except for John. This experience had humbled them and they knew they needed something more, in order to accomplish their destinies as world changers. Although they did not know the exact timing, their focus was on God and seeking him.

Suddenly, everything changed by fire, with an empowerment of Holy Spirit. Transformation brought them into the streets, where the people had gathered at the sound of a roaring sound, like a mighty wind. (This was a feast to the Lord, that required all Jewish men to come to Jerusalem to celebrate and there were Jews from many nations. It was the time of the wheat harvest, the giving of the 10 commandments, and the anniversary of the marriage of Israel to Yahweh.) It was 50 days after the Feast of Passover, when Jesus had been killed by the religious leaders. Not the time that man would choose for a new hope and the birth of the Body of Believers in Jesus.

Suddenly, Holy Spirit transformed the believers in Jesus and they were never the same again. They went from fearful to bold and spoke the good news of redemption from sin with the blood of Jesus, by repentance and turning back to God. The new believers also received Holy Spirit and were transformed.

Happy Pentecost! Anticipate your suddenly, where everything changes, for good!

On the day Pentecost was being fulfilled, all the disciples were gathered in one place. Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm. The roar of the wind was so overpowering it was all anyone could bear! Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them.They were all filled and equipped with the Holy Spirit and were inspired to speak in tongues—empowered by the Spirit to speak in languages they had never learned! (Acts 2:1-4 TPT)

Strength To Wait

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You will not break down but the Lord will break you through. God cares and has compassion for you. He has you and will not let you go. Be encouraged in the Lord, in his strength and his might.

Wait and ask the Lord to give you the strength, to wait. The Lord wants to hear your heart. Bring your heart to him for healing and restoration. Listen for his heart and see his provision.

Faith–Believe God

by Hazel Straub

Faith is believing for something that you can’t see. Learn to see things from the perspective of Heaven not earth because we are citizens of Heaven, living on earth. Christ lives inside of believers and with him all things are possible. There is no negativity or frustration in Heaven. With faith you can see with the eyes of Jesus.

The size of the problem is the size of the promise and provision. Your circumstances give you an opportunity to think like Jesus. We are called to become more like him. He conquered all darkness and sits with you, high above all the powers of darkness. (Ephesians 2:6) Every challenge and obstacle are merely there to elevate and upgrade you. The problem is not our circumstances but how we think and look at the situation. Don’t ask the question, why me? This is a victim question.

If you don’t think like Jesus, you will think with fear, doubt and unbelief. Instead, ask Jesus what he wants for you. Know he never leaves you and is good. He wants you to depend on him, not your circumstances. He grants you favor, goodness, power, and turns everything for your good. Believe it!

Daddy God, you are in charge and you reign. There are somethings in front of me that I haven’t broken through. Let me see with your eyes and have a higher walk with Holy Spirit, with an elevation upgrade, in my thinking. Captivate my heart with your love, so I can live triumphant in you.  All the glory is yours!
Amen

Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion to God 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)

Love In Abundance

 

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

When one holds back and withholds, one holds up and hinders one’s blessings.
When one sows and releases, one frees up and releases one’s blessings.

When one has a love deficit, one says, “I can’t afford to give right now.”
When one has love in abundance, one says, “I can’t afford not to give right now.”

Faith works by love…Selah

Rest My Dearest Child

by Hazel Straub

My Dearest Child,

Unload and cast all the weight of your cares, worries, fretting, and all anxiety that you carry, onto me. It is time to get rid of all the burdens. Release the responsibility for handling everything and everyone that troubles and concerns you, to me, Daddy God.

Cease your striving, struggling, and working so hard, in your own strength. Rest in me, while I work on your behalf. Relax and snuggle close, resting your head over my heart.  Receive my presence, peace, provision, refreshment,  and restoration, while you rest in me.

Love you so much,
Daddy God

“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then 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.” (Matthew 11:28-29 TPT)

Fiery Trials Are Good Or Bad?

by Hazel Straub

Is fire good or bad, when you are in it? When in the middle of the fire, with trials and tests, it does not seem good. In this season, we find the shakeable crumbling, so what is solid, reliable, and unshakeable, will remain. Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:28-29 BSB)

Many things on which we relied, ended exposed as shifting sands. What the foolish man builds, will not stand in the storm and hurricane because the foundation is unstable. However, what is built with wisdom, on God, will last despite the storms and shakings.

Three young Jewish men, were taken captive to a foreign land. We read about them in Daniel chapter 3. They refused to bow and worship a large golden statue and other false gods. They were thrown into the fiery furnace that was heated seven times hotter than usual. They wore their hats, cloaks and other garments, when bound and thrown into the furnace. Those throwing then in died from the heat but the three men only had what bound them burn. The king saw a fourth man in the fire, who looked like the Son of God, walking with the other three men. The fire consumes what causes bondage in your life.

They walked out of the fire not smelling of smoke, with all their clothing and hats undamaged. The king was amazed how God was with them and protected them. When you come out of this trial of isolation, sheltering, and many losses, what is of God will remain. You will have more of the presence of God and will influence others of the reality of God, who walks with you through fiery trials. Your end will be better than your beginning!

For hasn’t he promised you, “I will never leave you alone, never! And I will not loosen my grip on your life!” So we can say with great confidence: “I know the Lord is for me and I will never be afraid of what people may do to me!” (Hebrews 13:5b-6 TPT)

Know Your Identity!

by Hazel Straub

Your identity is not in how others treat you nor in the circumstances but in Christ Jesus.  Look up! Every situation in which you find yourself, is to make you more like Jesus. You are being conformed into the image of Jesus. He gives you abundant overflowing life and peace (whole and complete, nothing broken or missing).

Renew your mind. Jesus won the victory over the enemy of our souls and his victory is your victory. You are a WINNER through Christ! You cannot lose! God has given you all the provision for your vision. You have God’s favor and will not fail. The fight is fixed in your favor. 

 For you have acquired new creation life which is continually being renewed into the likeness of the One who created you; giving you the full revelation of God. In this new creation life, your nationality makes no difference, or your ethnicity, education, or economic status—they matter nothing. For it is Christ that means everything as he lives in every one of us! (Colossians 3:10-11 TPT)

Decree Against Enemy Attack

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

FOR ALL THE ATTACKS OF THE ENEMY BEING UNLEASHED AGAINST YOU: I banish, disarm and negate. I cut off, sever, and exercise dominion over all witchcraft attacks directed against your mind, emotions, and family! I draw a Holy Spirit blood barrier and ring of fire around you. I loose warring angels to do battle against all the demonic activity of the enemy surrounding you!

RISE against it with PURE WORSHIP and the PURE LOVE OF GOD! ATTACK BACK! The devil only has the power of suggestion but YOU HAVE THE POWER OF COMMAND!

More Than Conquerors

 

by Hazel Straub

We enjoy the love of God that makes us more than conquerors. No circumstance can defeat us or change the love God has for us. God’s love and power, give us triumph over fear, regret, and every challenge.

Faith in God gives victory over the enemy, of our souls and we recover all that was stolen from us. God is for us! Worship of him, brings him close. He is for us and nothing can defeat us. Nothing can separate us from God’s love that conquers all!

Praise God!

So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One! (Romans 8:38-39 TPT)

Where Is Your Focus?

 

by Hazel Straub

Where is your focus? Have you been longing for the past that was predictable?

If you keep your focus on the past, you will not embrace the wonder of today and will be unable to navigate your way. Have you ever tried to drive a car with your eyes fixated on the rear view mirror? If so, you would not advance far because you would not keep on the road in front of you and would crash. In the same way, if you think of your losses and how much you enjoyed yesterday, you will miss the wonders and gift of today. Yesterday is gone but the precious gift of the present is here. Do not squander it with regret or grief!

God is opening new vistas and is with you. What was meant for evil, is turned to good. Embrace new life and what the Lord is doing in your life! Enjoy time worshiping and spending time with God. He is such a good Father, gives you good gifts, abundant life, and does a new thing, in your life! Ask him to help you make the needed changes for your new chapter.

“Stop dwelling on the past.
Don’t even remember these former things.
I am doing something brand new, something unheard of.
Even now it sprouts and grows and matures.
Don’t you perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and open up flowing streams in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 TPT)
