by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The more God’s glory enters, the more it fills our voids. Just the Glory, no additives needed.

Through The Fire Of Testing Comes Joy!

by Hazel Straub

Trials and testings, often cause us to complain about our circumstances. God, however, uses troubles to help us mature and become more like him. When iron is in the process of becoming steel, it must be refined and tempered by fire. In the same way, God’s fire consumes the things in our lives that do not please God.

When we are comfortable, without challenges, we tend to depend upon ourselves and walk in pride. Trials and difficulties, however, show us our need to seek God and depend on him because we are unable to rescue ourselves. The heat of the flame, makes our avenues of escape disappear and we cry to God for relief. This reveals our character flaws and need for complete God dependence. Instead of complaining, rejoice and be filled with joy!

As we come to a place of total abandonment and dependency on God, we  rejoice, in the process of his mercy and love. The difficulties although painful, assist us in dying to our flesh and maturing to show more of Jesus’ character, in our walk of faith and God dependency.

My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. (James 1:2-4 TPT)

It Is Time To Bloom!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

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

It is time to bloom!

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

It’s your time to Bloom!

Have Faith And Trust God!

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to quit clinging to the past. It is time to release old mindsets of fear, doubt and unbelief. Quit complaining instead of reigning. When you refuse to release the past, but bow to the demonic voice of unbelief, there is no room for the new that God wants to give you.

Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Embrace his truth and believe his word. Choose to flow in faith, rather than unbelief and step into your Promised Land. Do not fear the giants, they no longer have protection and must flee before the name of the Lord of the Armies. Nothing is impossible, when you put your trust in God. Keep your focus and worship on him. Release the old and embrace the new! Trust God, move and live by faith.

“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19 NLT)

Talk To Your Problems About Your God!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Instead of letting the circumstances walk on top of you, it is time to walk on top of them. Dwelling on and rehearsing the past and the problems? Instead of rehearsing the problems, you need to start rehearsing God’s promises.

Stop talking to God about all your problems. Instead, talk to your problems, about your God!

Father, You Never Let Me Down

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Holy Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I run to you because you will never let me down. I come to you because you cannot fail. I trust you, Father because you disarm and teach me how to disarm my enemies with love.

Deliver me speedily, for you are my rock of defense and fortress of trust. Pull me out of the net they have laid privily for me, for you are my strength and safety zone. Into your hands I commit my spirit, for You have redeemed me, God of truth. I hate all this silly religion and playing of games, but you, O God, I trust.

You disarmed my tormentors and didn’t leave me in their clutches but gave me room to breathe. Be favorable to me and smile on me with favor today. To all my enemies I have become a reproach, but especially to my neighbors, and a dread to my acquaintances, who flee from me on the street. I am forgotten like a dead person, and out of mind; like a broken vessel. For I have heard the snake talk and slander of many; terror is on every side! While they schemed together against me, they plotted to take my life. But I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. My times are in Your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies and those who pursue me and persecute me.

Let the Glory of your face, shine on Your servant; save me for Your mercy’s sake and in Your loving-kindness. Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, or disappointed, for I am calling upon You; I desperately throw myself on you. Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol (the place of the dead). Let the lying lips be silenced, which speak insolently against the [consistently] righteous with pride and contempt.

What a stack of blessings you have piled up for those who worship you, ready and waiting for all who run to you, to escape an unkind world. You hide me safely away from the opposition. Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for me, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men! In the secret place of Your presence, You hide me from the plots of men; You keep me secretly in Your pavilion, from the strife of tongues.

Blessed be the Lord! For He has shown me His marvelous loving favor when I was beset as in a besieged city. As for me, I said in my haste and alarm, (I’m out of sight, out of mind), I am cut off from before Your eyes. But You heard the voice of my supplications, when I cried to You for aid. Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! The Lord preserves the faithful, and plentifully pays back him who deals haughtily. In you I am strong and my heart takes courage, I wait in expectation of you Lord! (Psalm 31)

Surrender Your Anxiety And Rest In God!

by Hazel Straub

Be still, surrender, let go, die to your desires of the flesh, and know that I am Lord. Rest and relax in me. I care for you. I desire your good and will not harm you. I am here for you. Keep your focus on me, the author and finisher of your faith.

Today is a new day. Listen to me and do not lean on your own understanding. Cease from your striving. Know my love and rest.

Surrender your anxiety!
Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God.
I am the God above all the nations,
and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.

Here he stands!
The Commander!
The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side!
The God of Jacob fights for us!

Pause in his presence
(Psalm 46:10-11 TPT)

Father, Raise My Love Level!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

There are many facets to the love of God according to 1 Corinthians 13 (The Message):

“1 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2 If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

11 When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.”

But there’s one thing that love will not do and that is to intentionally, hurt the one hurting you. Love always heals and perfects; it never hurts and destroys.

Father, raise my love level!

Love People!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Sometimes we are tempted to LOVE things and USE people, when we have been called to LOVE people and USE things.

Father, forgive us for our complicity, in these things, as we forgive others. Consume us, with the fire of your LOVE.
