No More Preconceptions!


by Hazel Straub

Do you ever limit God in your life? Many times we close ourselves to going to deeper in relationship to God because we base our opinion on our limited experience and how we interpret the Word of God.

Peter was one of the original disciples. He had many wonderful experiences with Jesus but was still limited by how he saw things. Jesus knew he was going to give up his life and got a basin of water and a towel to wash and dry his disciples’s feet. When Jesus came to Peter, he refused to have his feet washed because Jesus was his Lord. Then Jesus told Peter he would not be able to share life with him, unless he let him wash his feet. Peter then wanted to have his head and hands washed and allowed Jesus to wash his feet. He left pride behind and humbled himself. The same evening, Peter did not want Jesus to die and said he would take Jesus’ place. Jesus told Peter he would deny him three times before the rooster crowed. Peter went on his own strength and interpretation and denied Jesus three times. He later saw the truth of what Jesus said and repented.

God tells us to drop our preconceptions, our own ideas, and to listen to him. Holy Spirit lives inside of believers in Jesus and will lead us into all truth, as we yield to him. Let God give the truth to us no matter what it does to your preconceptions. Holy Spirit, show me the truth of the Word of God!

Now Jesus was fully aware that the Father had placed all things under his control, for he had come from God and was about to go back to be with him. So he got up from the meal and took off his outer robe, and took a towel and wrapped it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ dirty feet and dry them with his towel. But when Jesus got to Simon Peter, he objected and said, “I can’t let you wash my dirty feet—you’re my Lord!” Jesus replied, “You don’t understand yet the meaning of what I’m doing, but soon it will be clear to you.” Peter looked at Jesus and said, “You’ll never wash my dirty feet—never!”

“But Peter, if you don’t allow me to wash your feet,” Jesus responded, “then you will not be able to share life with me.” So Peter said, “Lord, in that case, don’t just wash my feet, wash my hands and my head too!” Jesus said to him, “You are already clean. You’ve been washed completely and you just need your feet to be cleansed—but that can’t be said of all of you.” For Jesus knew which one was about to betray him, and that’s why he told them that not all of them were clean. (John 13:3-10 TPT)

Do Not Give Up!

by Hazel Straub

Ever felt like quitting? Weary and without strength? Wait, trust and depend on the LORD and he will renew your strength and help you continue. The race does not go to those who start quickly but to the one who finishes. Even if you fall down, get up in the power of God and keep going. Never give up! Your faith and trust in God brings great rewards.

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9 NLT)

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NLT)

Victory Over Your Enemies

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Worship is your warfare and Your praise defeats the enemy. Yahweh is your BATTLE-AXE and your BANNER OF VICTORY. But you will not even need to fight. TAKE YOUR POSITIONS; (worship Him withal your heart) then stand still and watch the Lord ’s victory.

He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. DO NOT BE AFRAID OR DISCOURAGED. Go out against them (enemies of your soul) tomorrow, FOR THE LORD IS WITH YOU! Then King Jehoshaphat bowed low with his face to the ground. And all the people of Judah and Jerusalem did the same, WORSHIPING THE LORD. ..the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the Lord; his faithful love endures forever!”At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused (all their enemies to turn on themselves) the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves.

When you WORSHIP Yahweh, you cause your enemies to turn upon themselves, and none can escape the powerful presence of the Lord. So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped. King Jehoshaphat and his men went out to GATHER THE PLUNDER. (IT’S TIME TO GATHER IN THE PLUNDER AND RAKE IN THE SPOILS OF THE ENEMY). They found vast amounts of equipment, clothing, and other valuables—more than they could carry. (THE PRESENCE OF YAHWEH ALWAYS CREATES MORE THAN ENOUGH) There was so much plunder that it took them three days, just to collect it all! On the fourth day, they gathered in the Valley of Blessing, which got its name that day BECAUSE THE PEOPLE PRAISED AND THANKED THE LORD THERE. (In order to get to the place called “THERE”, you must worship and praise your way THERE. It is still called the Valley of Blessing today. “Then all the men returned to Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat leading them, overjoyed that the Lord had given them victory over their enemies.” (2 Chronicles 20:17, 18, 21, 22, 24-27 NLT)

As you worship Yeshua, the Lion of Judah roars in your defense and he is giving you THE VICTORY OVER YOUR ENEMIES TODAY!

Lord God My Strength!

by Hazel Straub

Facing challenges that seem insurmountable? Do you have a fixed income, more bills than income, health issues, relationship problems? The Lord God provides you with all the strength you need, as you trust him. He helps you through all the treacherous ways and makes your feet steady. You will walk because God is with you, gives you the confidence to continue, and see your way through it all. Be encouraged!

The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet And makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility]. Habakkuk 3:19 AMP

Yahweh Gives You The Victory!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It’s time to posses your land, your inheritance, your destiny.

It’s the season to go to war to retrieve and receive all that Yahweh has for you. Yah goes ahead of you and gives you the victory. Sanctify and consecrate yourself and go forward.

It’s time to live as the Victorious, no longer living beneath our privileges in the Kingdom of Jehovah! Refrain from looking back, dwelling in the past. Embrace your future, by dwelling in His Glory and His goodness. The Father is restoring you, even what you deemed as insignificant.

What was meant to bury you and halt you is going to impel you and propel you into greater Glory! It’s My desire to do my good pleasure to you. It is Released! You are Released. Your destiny is Released. You are free from the confines and restraints of yesterday. Your faith is becoming your sight. Your darkness is becoming new Light. Your shame is becoming your Glory and your weight buoyant.

Yahweh will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a a hedge of protection. Yahweh will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you, bringing order and he will beautify. Yahweh will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete. (Numbers 6:24) Yahweh will come to you on bended knee bearing gifts of love, favor, and great blessing. Yahweh will fulfill every dream and desire he placed within your heart expeditiously!

Declare The Word Of God And Prosper

by Hazel Straub

When you agree with what God has said, in his Word and declare it with your mouth, it is powerful. Obediently, follow his instructions. Decree his Word, with your speech, watch blessings come, and overtake you. Faith comes through hearing and hearing by the word of God. It reveals God and his one and only Son, Jesus the Anointed One by his Holy Spirit. Have faith and trust in God and your life will be transformed.

This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to recite it day and night so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do. (Joshua 1:8 HCSB)

My Day Of Deliverance!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I cut and negate with the sword of the Spirit, of the living God, every witchcraft directed at your mind, health, life, family, business, and ministry. I declare the supernatural manifold governmental judicial wisdom of Yahweh, upon you now. I release miracles, against every impossible circumstance. I loose the pure authority of the love of God, in the camp of the enemy, against all confusion and division attacks.

I speak to your spirit man to RISE! RISE and Believe the word of Yahweh! Your hope is restored, alive, and kicking. You don’t have to compromise, plot, and scheme to get ahead, like the world because Great Jehovah is on your side and working on your behalf! Our God is Greater, our God is Stronger, Our God is More Powerful than anything.

The Lion of Judah is rising within you, with greater power and authority! Push! Push forward! Push forward into tangible manifestation!

I render the devil powerless, null, and ineffective, in your life, by the Glory of Yeshua! You have More than enough! You are too equipped to be whipped! You are armed and dangerous, pulsating with the Glory of Yah! Your enemies are coming at you one direction and fleeing in seven other directions. Yahweh is arising on your behalf and every enemy is scattered, shattered, and splattered!

I come against every demon that wants you to keep your mouth shut, stuck on silent. I declare today your mouth is being enlarged over your enemies! I command you, to open your redeemed mouth, today and say so! Open your mouth and prophesy today! “So what, I have already won! I am harvesting my crops! I am released! Today is My Day of Deliverance and I overcome by the blood and conquer in the name of Yahweh!”

Wow!

Fiery Tests Mature Us

by Hazel Straub

“Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.” (James 1:2-4 AMPC)

When we face trials and testing, 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. If our circumstances are not challenging, we have a tendency to depend upon ourselves.

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.

God’s Love And Encouragement For You!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

One thing, I love about the Love of God. People will look at your flaws, weaknesses, or wrong to try to destroy or kill you, but God looks, loves and encourages you. For those of you like me, who still have flesh that you’re bringing under the knife, of the Word, let me encourage you.

1. Whatever you struggle with, you are not what you struggle with.
2. Yahweh says what I require of you is what I REQUIRE OF YOU, not someone else.
3. Maybe that’s what they see and want you to change but I am the HOLY SPIRIT ADMINISTRATOR, of your life and the BISHOP OF YOUR SOUL, not them. Sometimes, what others are trying to condemn you for isn’t even what I’m dealing with currently, in your heart.
4. Free yourself. Sometimes you study things about yourself that I’m not even studying.

And fifthly, the number for grace, NO MATTER WHAT YOUR THORNS MAY BE, GRACE IS ALL YOU NEED. Admit it: no matter what my thorns may be, YOUR GRACE IS ALL I NEED.

Don’t allow the opinions and expectations of others to hold you hostage and keep you bound. My love makes you free, my love delivers you, my love defines who you are, not what you’ve done…God’s love.

The Key To A Vibrant Life!

by Hazel Straub

If you watch or read the news, fear and dread can easily overtake you. The news breeds anxiety and disquiet, as it centers on problems not the solutions. What you allow through your eye and ear gates sets the course for your day. Guard your heart and change what you allow yourself to listen, watch and think on. The world does not offer peace and rest for your soul but can make you worry (negative meditation).

Instead, spend your time feeding on Jesus and on the Word of God.  Repeat. speak, ponder, and think about his incredible love, his words, his forgiveness, and presence that bring life, light and satisfaction. You will find wisdom, strength, health and help for your problems. When you keep Jesus and the Word in front of your eyes, listening, speaking it out loud, and allowing it penetrate your heart, you get life, healing and health, to all your flesh. Ask Holy Spirit, to make the Word of God become alive to you. It’s the fountain of youth and the key to vibrant health and for the wholeness of  your body and mind. See God’s promises fulfilled in your life and meditate on God’s Word, as your refuge and help.

Listen carefully, my dear child, to everything that I teach you, and pay attention to all that I have to say. Fill your thoughts with my words until they penetrate deep into your spirit. Then, as you unwrap my words, they will impart true life and radiant health into the very core of your being. (Proverbs 4:20-22 TPT)

How Do You Measure Your Value?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If you’re going to measure your value, by how people treat you, then do it Jesus’ way. If you’re being blocked by others, destructively discussed, rejected quite often, and others withdraw from you, then you are extremely valuable, in the Kingdom. Intimidatingly authentic, highly anointed, and definitely guilty of living like Jesus.

Whatever the devil said about you, thank him for the confirmation; he’s the father of lies, he only speaks the opposite of the TRUTH!

Precious And Treasured One

by Hazel Straub

My Dearest Child,

You are my treasured one and I delight in you, my child. Even though you are a fragile vessel of clay, I have placed my treasure within you. You are precious and valuable in my sight. I cherish you and paid the greatest price for you, with the precious life and blood of my son, Jesus. You are worth more than all the rubies and gold. Precious.

I carry you close in my heart and will not let you go. Receive and bask in my love. You do not have to do anything to receive all that I have for you. My child, I accept, take pleasure and value you, as rare and very precious. Know this is your true identity and requires nothing else or good performance. Rest, cease from your labors and let me lavish my love and comfort on you. You are my precious treasure, my jewel in whom I delight.

Love,
Abba

Irritated? You Might Get A Pearl!

by Hazel Straub

When others rub you the wrong way, God uses them as sandpaper to refine you and smooth your rough edges. Often the thing that irritates the most, show things inside of you. Thank God for irritants, as they are the catalyst for becoming more like Christ.

Mollusks produce pearls from sand and other irritants that get trapped inside their shell.  The pearl is highly prized and valuable. Those things that are difficult, often turn into things of great beauty. Rejoice!

Heaven’s kingdom realm is also like a jewel merchant in search of rare pearls. When he discovered one very precious and exquisite pearl, he immediately gave up all he had in exchange for it. (Matthew 13:45-46 TPT)

Against Insurmountable Odds!

by Hazel Straub

Boxed in with nowhere to turn? You cannot retreat, due to your enemy, nipping at your heels and a huge obstacle in front of you that is impossible. Praise God! What is impossible for man, is easy for God. Only he can get you out of the dilemma. Total dependency, on God, brings breakthrough!

Many times we cry to God, when things get difficult but depend upon ourselves, when things go well. Sometimes, we get into a situation, where there is no way out but for God.

The children of Israel had Pharoah and his army pursuing them and the Red Sea in front of them. Impossible? God had a plan and they went over on dry ground and then saw their enemy destroyed. God is the same today, as yesterday, and does not change.

Look for a miraculous breakthrough, over the things that defeated you, in the past. Know that God delights, in last-minute deliverance, from your enemy!

But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”(Exodus 14:13-14 NLT)

Walking In Obedience And Blessings

by Hazel Straub

The Lord Jesus is calling us into a place of greater intimacy with him. He wants us to walk in his promises and no longer dwell in fear, doubt and unbelief. He calls us to listen and walk with him in love, belief and trust. It is time to journey with him, from the familiar into the new, leaning on the Lord and not in our own understanding. Know that he is supplying all that we need, as we go with him.

If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. (Isaiah 1:19-20 AMPC)

Walk In Christ’s Love And Forgiveness

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.

What Is Your Response To Trouble?

by Hazel Straub

When life is cold and stormy, relationships tested and fraying, betrayed, short of money, sick and tired, do you despair or see these circumstances, as opportunities? Two people can face the same challenges but view them completely differently. One despairs, loses heart, grows bitter feeling victimized, throws a self-pity party and shakes their fists in frustration. They relied on their own wit, strength and strategies, without success. The other one looks and sees the stage set for major change, due to God’s intervention. This one, dies to their flesh, pride, and independent ways. Instead they envision troubles as an opportunity and expect God to shine and get the glory. It is at the darkest hour that they see how only God can deal with the insurmountable problems, healing, restoring, and bringing new life.

Troubles can be the catalyst for personal, family, church, city and national new life. Restoration and revival happen when God’s people unite in humbling themselves, change their minds and turn away from their sins, cry out to God for mercy and seek him with all their hearts, putting him first. Your response brings either life or death.

“If I ever shut off the supply of rain from the skies or order the locusts to eat the crops or send a plague on my people, and my people, my God-defined people, respond by humbling themselves, praying, seeking my presence, and turning their backs on their wicked lives, I’ll be there ready for you: I’ll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health.” (2 Chronicles 7:13–14 MSG)

Love, Love, Love!

by Hazel Straub

What is extraordinary love? Love your enemies. Show compassion and imitate God. Go beyond the expected, give generously to the undeserving and ungrateful. Love, love, love!

If you want to be extraordinary—love your enemies! Do good without restraint! Lend with abandon! Don’t expect anything in return! Then you’ll receive the truly great reward—you will be children of the Most High—for God is kind to the ungrateful and those who are wicked. So imitate God and be truly compassionate, the way your Father is. (Luke 6:35-36 Voice)

God Anointed You

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If it’s bothering “You,” it’s probably because I anointed “You,” to do it, brought “You,” to it, to take “You,” through it, to deliver others through “You.” It’s not bothering anyone else because I anointed “You,” to do it. The anointing is not an adjective but the Spirit of God that destroys yokes and removes burdens.

The Spirit of the Lord has anointed “You,” to bring good news to the poor, to comfort the brokenhearted, to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent “You,” to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and that God’s anger is released against their enemies. (Isaiah 61:1, 2)

Admit it, GOD HAS ANOINTED YOU FOR THIS DAY!

Treasure In Jars Of Clay

When we are weak and inadequate, God shines out of our lives. The cracks in our lives allows the light of God’s love  to shine out of us. The treasure we carry inside shows best in brokenness. Also, when we  walk in humility, God gets all the glory. Shine!

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us. (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 BSB)

What Do You See?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You can have an outstanding personality. You can be gifted with multiplicity of anointing. You can have a great occupation. You can have the best things going for you, but if you don’t SEE IT, it’s all null and void, until you SEE IT!

“Open your eyes, SEE what I SEE,” says the Lord Yahweh! “I SEE your Value, your Beauty, and you are Powerful! See?”

The Love Of God–Antidote For Fear

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.

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

Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. See, all your angry enemies lie confused and shattered. Anyone opposing you will die. You will look for them in vain—they will all be gone.  I am holding you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God—and I say to you, Don’t be afraid; I am here to help you. (Isaiah 41:10-13 TLB)

Motivated By Love

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Love is – Helping people who can’t help you; Spending time with individuals who may not be mature enough to appreciate it currently; Fighting to love and not fighting to be right; Being there for people not because you can but because you care; Yahweh is testing our hearts and challenging our love walk towards him and each other. However, Love is not discounting everything someone has done for you because of one thing they didn’t do.

Don’t be circumstantial or emotionally motivated be LOVE MOTIVATED TODAY!

Do Not Quit!

by Hazel Straub

How many times have we started out on some venture, full of enthusiasm, only to peter out, when it got difficult or boring? Many can recite a litany of reasons why they quit. We tell ourselves, “I didn’t sign up for this,” and opt out. We fail due to “ME-ISMS”, focusing on self (pride) and not on the one who gave his life for us. Instead, if we say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13), we will do the impossible.

The journey of life, shapes and matures us, as we walk with Jesus. When we do not allow discouragement and discontent to reign, we will get up after falling. Help comes by listening to the still small voice of Holy Spirit, dying to our flesh along with its selfish desires, and living for Jesus. Dead people don’t get offended or worry. Resting in the Lord with an attitude of joy-filled, thankful worship, makes the heart merry and the journey easier.

Then Yeshua said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and let him come after me.” (Matthew 16:24 ABPE)

Faith Filled Walking

by Hazel Straub

Trust and cling tightly to the promises that God spoke to you. This is the time to move and take the first step into the unknown. One step after another, leads into a new adventure and fulfillment of the dreams that Abba placed within you. Your movement in faith-filled walking, will have ripples that affect many.

Guard your dreams and be careful with whom you share them so they will not die.. Listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd and do not follow the voice of a stranger. Our Shepherd promised that you would lack nothing and rest in lush green pastures. Take you first step and go on a new journey of faith. You will see your dreams fulfilled and many lives changed because of your stepping to the sound of the Shepherd’s voice.

My sheep know my voice, and I know them. They follow me. (John 10:27 CEV)

Pleasant Words Like A Honeycomb!

by Hazel Straub

Spoken words, lodge in our soul (mind, will and emotions), bringing life or death. When we speak with kindness, it brings healing to ourselves and others.

Forgive those that have spoken against you, including yourself. Loose and let go of all the negative words from your soul and bind the positive words and the love of Jesus to your soul. Let the sweet honey, of the Word of God, fill you.

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24 NET)

Your Mouth Is A Weapon!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You make your way with your MOUTH!
Watch what comes out
What you talk about you bring about
Your words can activate faith

Your words can cause doubt
Death and life are in the power of your tongue
When you speak it out, it is done
You can really have what you say

If you speak it in faith today
It works for the positive or for the worse
Faith is more than the recitation of scripture and verse
Without faith it’s impossible to please God

That’s why whatever you speak is from the abundance of your heart
Your mouth is a weapon, a sword if you like
Use to cut all contrary to your faith being made sight
Good or bad, in or out
You make your way with your MOUTH!

Prayer Of Surrender!

by Hazel Straub

Today, Lord, I surrender myself to you alone
Not my will but your will be done with my life
I release my ambitions, selfishness and pride
All of me fully given to you Father God for your use

Surrendered!

So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will flee in agony. (James 4:7 TPT)

Walk In The New With The Holy Spirit

by Hazel Straub

This is a new season. The challenge is to walk in the new, leaving the old. It is time to discard the old familiar garments of the sinful fleshly nature, with its stinking mental and emotional garbage, sinful self-interest and doing what is self-pleasing. Let your desires come from God’s Spirit, as you wear the new clothes. You are the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Live God’s way and he gives you good fruit that transforms your life. He gives us compassion for others in our hearts, bubbling joy, great affection for others and wholeness. When we are in Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and having mindless responses, we kill, nailing them to his cross. Wear your new outlook and clothes! Holy Spirit leads and we follow into life transformation.

“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.” (Galatians 5:22-26 NLT)

Focus On God And His Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Stop focusing on the problems and start focusing on the results. Don’t get lost in the details, just be lost in doing the work. We have tendency of becoming consumed with whatever we focus on. Let’s focus on God’s glory.

The Best Way To Start A New Year

by Hazel Straub

Trust Yahweh and release control to him. Surrender, your preconceived ideas and let go. Allow him to direct, lead and guide you. Humble yourself, stop resisting, yield to the Lord.

Yahweh will never fail you, trust his love for you.

Yahweh is my strength and my wraparound shield. When I fully trust in you, help is on the way. I jump for joy and burst forth with ecstatic, passionate praise! I will sing songs of what you mean to me! (Psalm 28:7 TPT)

Yahweh, I Need You!

by Hazel Straub

Today, I unconditionally surrender to you, Yahweh, with a deep call, for your deliverance.
God, I’m crying out, desperate for your help and intervention, as I’m dependent on you.
Because of your mercies, I’m not consumed and your loving compassion never fails.
God, you alone make the impossible, possible, calm the raging storm and are my refuge

I will praise Yahweh at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Yahweh;
let all who are helpless take heart.

Come, let us tell of the Yahweh’s greatness;
let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to Yahweh, and he answered me.
He freed me from all my fears.

Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
In my desperation I prayed, and Yahweh listened;
he saved me from all my troubles.
For the angel of Yahweh is a guard;
he surrounds and defends all who fear him.(Psalm 34:1-7 NLT)

Let Go!

by Hazel Straub

Let go and let God be God
Give him control he is Lord
Surrender and trust in God alone
Not strength for Jesus’ blood atones

Release your grip and let it go
Give God control and it will show
Don’t sweat, fear, or get into a fret
God has not finished with you yet

In God shall you put your trust
Focus your eyes on Jesus is a must
Relax and leave the details to him
His loving-kindness makes life a hymn

Trust and love the Lord with all your heart;
Do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT )

Shame Redeemed!

by Hazel Straub

It is those places of which you are most ashamed and want to bury in the past, that I, the Lord God, am redeeming. I am taking those places and turning them from a pit and trap, into a door of hope. Just as fresh snow covers and transforms the landscape, so I am transforming your life. Rejoice, for I redeem and make you pure. Your past offers hope to the discouraged. Rejoice and look up, for I AM your Redeemer! Live rejoicing!

From there I will give back her vineyards to her, and turn the “Valley of Trouble” into an “Opportunity for Hope.” There she will sing as she did when she was young, when she came up from the land of Egypt. (Hosea 2:15 NET Bible)

Let Go And Embrace God’s Goodness!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Let go of the regrets and embrace all of what God has ordained for you. Leave the past in the past. Focus on the promises not the problems.

Don’t waste your energy on the enemy, you’ve already won! Don’t dwell on what you don’t have, look at what you do have. Your memories are not your reality and your emotions are not paramount. Turn your worries into worship. Embrace the goodness of the Father, his mercy, and all that he desires for you. Yahweh desires to open his great treasure and do his good pleasure through you.

The Curse Reversed By God!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God reversed the curse!

And afterward I will reverse the captivity of the children of Ammon and restore their fortunes, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 49:6 AMP)

You see, I have received His command to bless Israel. He has blessed, and I cannot reverse or qualify it. (Numbers 23:20 AMP)

FOR BEHOLD, in those days and at that time when I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, (Joel 3:1 AMP)

Yet will I reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Moab in the latter days, says the Lord. Thus far is the judgment on Moab. (Jeremiah 48:47 AMP)

But it shall be in the latter days (the end of days) that I will reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Elam, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 49:39 AMP)

And if [the people of] that nation concerning which I have spoken turn from their evil, I will repent and reverse My decision concerning the evil that I thought to do to them. (Jeremiah 18:8 AMP)

While bringing up your past, the enemy is rehearsing, in your near future, God is reversing.

Yahweh’s Heart Exam

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Yahweh is examining motives, exposing hearts. What is the reason for why you do what you? Is it really about his Kingdom or yours? Is it about His approval or the approval of others? Are you a Yahweh pleaser or man pleaser? Are you comparing yourself to others or are you thankful for what Yahweh has given you? What’s in our hearts will reflect in our lives…heart examination…Selah
