Let Go And Give It To The Lord!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

When we say that we give something to the Lord, we have to completely let it go, so that He can completely work. It entails letting it go emotionally, mentally, and heart-wise. This requires aggression against the enemy and all his imps (such as worry, fear, stress, anxiety, restlessness, sleeplessness, etc).

It seems that sometimes we just give, but not to the Lord. Other times we give a little, but not completely to Yahweh. Giving involves us relinquishing, transferring, handing it over, and delegating it to the Father. He is more than capable and willing to take care of it ALL. When you truly give it to Yahweh, then your conversations and actions will demonstrate that you’re TRUSTING Him with it.

Yahweh is calling us into spiritual retirement, from the things only HE IS SUPPOSED TO DO. Therefore, in order for us to be completely RESTORED, we must REST in HIS CARE, in lieu of being restless, by the cares of this world. Turn in your resignation TODAY. It’s not your responsibility anyway, it’s His. REST, by doing yourself a favor, your health, your body, your emotions, your mind, your heart, and turn everything in HOLY ABANDONMENT TO THE FATHER!

Glorify The Lord With Your Life!

by Hazel Straub

Each one has the gift of 24 hours each day, of their life. What do you spend your time thinking upon? Do you meditate on God and his goodness and his incredible love for you or do you think about yourself, flaws, and the difficulties you have? Does pride or humility rule, in your life?

Your purpose in life is to glorify God. When you meditate and complain about your troubles, you major on the wrong things and become full of pride and remain in the mess. Remember, God and his love goes with you through the fire, so you have no need for stress and distress, because fire merely burns the impurities.  You come out of the fire as pure gold! God desires your light to shine brightly, with Jesus.  Others come to the light and see Jesus in you. Trials help you have more of God’s character with God dependence not independence.

Rejoice and worship God! He makes you a sign that people pause and wonder at God’s love and mercy! Your tests turn into a testimony of God’s greatness.

Now, this is what Yahweh says:
“Listen, Jacob, to the One who created you,
Israel, to the one who shaped who you are.
Do not fear,
for I, your Kinsman-Redeemer, will rescue you.
I have called you by name, and you are mine.
When you pass through[b] the deep, stormy sea,
you can count on me to be there with you.
When you pass through raging rivers,
You will not drown.
When you walk through persecution like fiery flames,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not harm you,
for I am your Savior, Yahweh, your mighty God,
the Holy One of Israel!
I give up Egypt as the price to set you free,
Cush and Seba in exchange to bring you back.
Since you are cherished and precious[d] in my eyes,
and because I love you dearly and want to honor[e] you,
I willingly give up nations in exchange for you—
a man to save your life. (Isaiah 43:1-4 TPT)

Labor To Enter His Rest

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Do yourself a favor today, believe what God says about you and what his grace is doing to you. Enter into the inner REST of Faith. Be inner dependent and not independent.

It is not your occupation to make everything perfect. Regardless of offenses, criticisms, weaknesses or the past, you don’t live by the impulses of what others think or say. What God says, supersedes the rest.

There is a place of REST that Yahweh is summoning you to. Rest for the weary, the wounded, and those who keep trying to perfect themselves in the eyes of flesh. (Isaiah 28:12; Job 3:17-19)

You struggle when you try to be what others desire you to be or when you try to earn God ‘s love. However, there is peace simply being you and receiving his love for you. You are anointed to be You. Stop striving to “do” and start RESTing to “be.”

For we which have BELIEVED do enter into REST, as he said,…”Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: There remaineth therefore a REST to the people of God. For he that is entered into his REST, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that REST….” (Hebrews 4:3, 6, 9-11 KJV)

JeHovah is always thinking bigger than you, believing in you, and challenging you to be You. Don’t fight him or resist him, just worship and agree. I command you to walk in the in the love and belief the Father has for you; love yourself the way He loves you. Do yourself a favor today, just labor to enter his REST! Enjoy the REST of your Day!

Daddy God’s Heart For You!

by Hazel Straub

Daddy God and his one and only Son Jesus loves us and their love sustains us. First we receive this love, until it permeates us. We leak love constantly from our heart. Love twinkles from our eyes and we see others with love, we receive from Daddy God that gives us life. We put God first and see others as dear beloved family members. Love forgives and treat others with loving kindness and honor.

Love redeems, restores and rejoices. Daddy God’s love flows into you, out of you, and changes hearts and heals divisions!

Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle. (Romans 12:9-10 MSG)

Daddy God’s Extravagant Love!

by Hazel Straub

Do you feel unworthy of the love of God, due to many mess ups? Good news! Our magnificent Daddy God strengthens us by his Spirit, as we open our heart’s door to him. He changes us with his extravagant love. Our roots go deep into the rich soil of his unconditional love and they drink living water. Fresh revelation of this awesome love melts our hearts, as we yield our will for his will. The stubbornness of wanting our own way, rebellion, pride, lust, idolatry, all relinquished, renounced, and repented, as we turn to Christ, and our hearts supple, pliable, surrender, to the heartbeat and rule of Daddy God.

Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life. Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination!  He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” (Ephesians 3:17-20 TPT)

Freedom From The Spirit Of The Past

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Tis the season to come up and come out of that which is familiar and has held you captive. Jehovah Sabaoth empowers you to break and destroy the unhealthy cycles, the generational curses, and or coping vices in your life.

Unconsciously, we whom have been abused, rejected, or mistreated in some way, sometimes come into agreement with the abuse or rejection or mistreatment in some facet of our learned behaviors, thinking patterns, how we handle exhortation, or correction. This is usually rooted in having an orphan heart. For example, a person’s parents abused them but were in denial about it. Thus the child is wounded and develops a coping vice or an unhealthy cycle and LIVES A LIFE OF DENIAL. The denial was started way back when, but now perpetually prevalent, until it is dealt with. If not, what we refuse to deal with, begins to deal with us.

Beloved, don’t discount or reject what Jehovah Sabaoth is giving you now, because of what you’ve experienced in the past. I break off the spirit of the past and it’s influence and sever it’s hold from your life.

Don’t forfeit the true and the new for what is old and untrue. Come forth in the name of The Lord. Come up from the graves, the dead, Lodebar – dismal place of no pasture, no word, no communication, hopelessness, and total desolation. Come out of the prisons of Egypt – confined, limited, places of bondage. Come into the Davidic – place of tabernacle, sanctuary, covenant, habitation, fullness of joy, and boundless, pleasures forevermore. Come into the freedom and strong delivering grace of Jehovah Sabaoth, today!

Inner Rest Of Faith

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It’s so fulfilling to REST. To Rest from all your labor after working all week. To REST in the finished work of Jesus on Calvary. To REST from all fear, worry, harm, stress, and dis ease. To REST from struggle, deadlines, and all the hustle and bustle of life. To enter the INNER REST of FAITH, whereby, we occupy the promise or promised land.

To REST, to be restored. To REST your mind, your heart, on the WORD promises and security of God. We labor, to enter, HIS REST, because he is the God, who makes all things possible and beautiful in HIS TIME! There is a REST for the weary, a refreshing, sanctuary, a full resort and complete sabbath REST, for the people of God. Where we are made confident that the Father has gone before us and provided everything we need.

Let’s enter in….. He says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. (Jeremiah 6:16.) For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good–not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.” Come away with Me and I will take you there… (Matthew 11:28-30, Isaiah 28:12, Hebrews 5:9)

Deliberate Worshipers

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…

God Chose The Weak

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

People use their own requirements and standards to decide who God has chosen or not. Consequently, neglecting God’s system, of choosing the foolish things, to confound the wise. God chose the weak things, to confound the strong. The base things of the world and the things which are despised hath God chosen; the things that are not to bring to naught the things that are: that no flesh should glory in his presence. (1 Corinthians 1:26-27)

You should choose to be chosen knowing that God chose you. Then when man comes to ordain you, they are only coming into compliance, with what Heaven has already done.

Expect The Best

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Break the tradition of rejection, in your life and ACCEPT that your are ACCEPTED in the Beloved and REJECT that you are REJECTED.

EXPECT the best, with a God EXPECTANCY and don’t take your EXPECTORS off, for anyone. (Maybe it didn’t happen yet, but God is going to do it for you because he loves you.)

Get Up And Rely On God!

by Hazel Straub

If you don’t quit you win, in your faith walk with the Lord. Some resign prematurely, thinking that God won’t use them. Then they fail to press into God. Persist in putting your trust in God, get up and continue, despite falling. Rely on the Lord for strength today.

Father in Heaven, I come to you through your Son, Jesus. Your love sustains me, during this season of testing. My focus is you, Father, and I praise you, as you transform me into the image of Christ. Full surrender of my will for your will, your ways for my ways. God, you are all I need, as I rest in you and the promises in your Word. Amen

 So no wonder we don’t give up. For even though our outer person gradually wears out, our inner being is renewed every single day. We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18 TPT)

Holiness A Matter Of The Heart

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I believe the Lord is raising the standard of his holiness in the body of Christ.

“Holiness is for what God is calling and without no man shall see the Lord. Oh I will live right, holy in your sight. Pure and true just like You…” (A prophetic song of the Lord.)

Holiness is a matter or state of the heart towards Christ and his body. Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God. (Matthew 5:8)

Worship is more than the melodic singing of songs and skillful playing of music but also how we interact with each other and treat our relationships. However, God doesn’t want our offering, if we have an alt against one another. He wants us leave our gift or offering at the altar and go be reconciled to our brother or sister. More than giving an offering, the Father desires us to become an offering poured out like a “drink offering.”

Holiness is a matter of the heart, not the appearance. It’s the pure in heart that will see God, not pure in the letter or Scriptures but the heart. Holiness is the fire of the Holy Spirit exposing the heart, to the permeating love of God. Formerly, there has been much emphasis outwardly, trying to dress to part. While neglecting the most essential part, “the heart.” as we meet the Holiness of God, we become overwhelmingly consumed with living a life filled with pleasing the Lord. The Holy Spirit empowers us to live holy, the word equips us to live holy, but God’s love transforms us to be holy. God is filling our hearts, minds, and body with the fresh fires of his holiness.

Holiness is a matter or condition of the heart.
The inner power of the Holy Spirit outwardly revealing in our character.
A Process of becoming divine,
Dying to live, living to love, and loving to love exactly like God.

Do Not Be Afraid!

by Hazel Straub

When you are going through tests and trials, remember you are not alone. You have God, Jesus and Holy Spirit, on your side, when you have accepted Jesus, God’s Anointed One and Only Son, as your redeemer and Lord. Much greater are those with you, than those against you. Praise God that the fight is fixed in your favor! He wars on your behalf.

Do not be afraid of them, for the Lord your God will personally fight for you. (Deuteronomy 3:22 NET)

No weapon forged to be used against you will succeed; you will refute everyone who tries to accuse you. This is what the LORD will do for his servants–I will vindicate them,” says the LORD (Yahweh, your covenant keeping God).  (Isaiah 54:17 NET)

Transformation From Prophetic Word Of Lord

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

After Saul was prophesied to, HE WAS TURNED INTO ANOTHER MAN!

“And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you SHALL PROPHESY WITH THEM, and SHALL BE TURNED INTO ANOTHER MAN.” (1 Samuel‬ ‭10:6‬ )

The prophetic Word of the Lord, has the divine creative supernatural ability to TURN (change, transform, transmute, transpose) you, into another person, and cause you to prophesy also. The prophetic is more than just words, but the supernatural release of the heart and ability of God. The prophetic is more than just confirmation, but it actually triggers the move of God in your life.

Once the law of God is released in the earth, nothing and no one can halt it. Today, on the calendar of God, marks a new day of Divine Turnaround in your life. Your obstacles are being turned into advantages.

God is shifting those whom have endured the process God required of them. He is shifting them into the receiving and finishing part of the process. Things are being reversed, from dry to an overflowing wellspring, from loss to profit, from sterile to fertility, from investment to return, from sowing to harvesting, from cursing to blessing, and from lack to the more abundant life Yahweh promised. Divine Turnaround for you.

The Love Of God

by Hazel Straub

The love of God finds expression through the extravagant love of Jesus, who took our shame, blame, condemnation, burdens, curses, diseases, fear and sin, when he died for us. He sets us free from pain. His amazing love draws us to him. His goodness, mercy and lovingkindness, are beyond measure. Accept his astonishing invitation to spend time with him and experience his transforming love. Christ lives inside of us and his Holy Spirit, leads us into all truth.

Enjoy his loving presence, so you can share his love with others. Love!

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that. (Ephesians 5:1-2 MSG)

Divorce That Is God Approved?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Some say God hates divorce, God says, it depends on who you are divorcing. Here are some things you may need to divorce:

The spirit of comparison, measuring yourself to someone else.

The spirit of identity crisis, striving but never being yourself; unhappy with oneself, and having no identity.

The spirit of Saul, the people’s choice, living by the impulse of others.

The spirit of self-mutilation, can’t love your neighbor, as one loves oneself because one hates oneself.

Last but not least, the spirit of isolation, no communication, no relation, no true covenant relationship with another.

One must fall out of agreement with the enemy and come into complete compliance with the Lord. “…and the two became one.” Divorce what the enemy’s saying to you and marry the Lord and become one with his word; you’re the bride, Yeshua is the groom.

Like A Tree Planted By Waters

by Hazel Straub

It is the delight of Daddy God to give good gifts to his children. He heals the wounded and delivers them from oppression. Daddy God’s love surrounds the fearful and fear departs. His supply is ample, for anyone rooted in Christ, with streams of living water, flowing out of them. They will bear fruit no matter, if there is a water shortage and it hasn’t rained for years. Their source is the River of Life.

God hears the cries of his children and answers them. Put your trust in him, leave doubt and fear, as he transforms your life!

[Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8 AMPC)

God Our Help In Trouble

by Hazel Straub

The best place in troubled times, when life appears unpredictable, and fear of lack occurs, God is our refuge and safe haven. He hears our cries and welcomes us to trust and have faith in him. Run to him and rest because he is always available and provides all we need.

God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge!
    You’re a proven help in time of trouble—
more than enough and always available whenever I need you.
So we will never fear even if every structure of support were to crumble away. We will not fear even when the earth quakes and shakes,  moving mountains and casting them into the sea.   For the raging roar of stormy winds and crashing waves cannot erode our faith in you.                                                                                                       Pause in his presence (Psalm 46:1-3 TPT)

Embrace Your Future

If you’re always talking about what happened (past) to you. Then you will always be living in what happened (past) to you.

…forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)

Refrain from the past and embrace your future…

Yahweh Gives Heart Transplants!

Here Is My Heart Yahweh

by Hazel Straub

What is the greatest treasure, we can give Yahweh? It is our hearts, our way of thinking (mind), our will and our emotions. When we surrender our natural way of thinking for his, submit our will to him, and give him our emotions, our lives will become fulfilled. Yahweh gives us a new heart in exchange for our stony hearts. What a wonderful exchange!

Lord, here is my heart, I give every part to you. I give you my stony heart and ask that you give me a heart of flesh that is filled with your Holy Spirit, as I yield to you. Thank you for this divine heart transplant through Christ Jesus. Amen!

Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.  I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.

Deep Spiritual Roots In Christ

by Hazel Straub

How do you keep from discouragement? You change your focus from the news media, negative reports and relationships, to Jesus our Lord. He strengthens and helps all who put their faith in him. Know that in him, your spiritual roots go deeply in him and he infuses you with strength and encouragement. Keep focused on him and your day will go much better! Blessings to you, of faith in Jesus!

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 2:6-7 TPT)

Enjoy The Presence Of Yahweh

by Hazel Straub

Do you struggle with certain sins, toxic emotions, and negativity towards yourself? Get real with Yahweh, your Heavenly Father, open your heart to him, confess your sins, and let the blood of Jesus cleanse you, receive his forgiveness and forgive yourself.

Come close to Yahweh and spend time expressing your gratitude and thankfulness to him, for his forgiveness, mercy, grace, love, and whatever else he has done for you. He will respond to you and come near with his presence. Move your heart closer and closer to God, and he will come even closer to you. But make sure you cleanse your life, you sinners, and keep your heart pure and stop doubting (or being double minded). (James 4:8 TPT) Put your trust in him, not yourself. The more time you spend with Yahweh, the better your life will go. Enjoy his love and acceptance.

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 2:6-7 TPT)

Sing The New!

Singing A New Song!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Thank God, for what we’ve been blessed to experience, in His presence, all our lives. However, we don’t want to camp out in yesteryear, when the WORD says: “But we all, with open face beholding, as in a glass, the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬). O come let us sing a NEW SONG to the Lord. (Psalms 33:3, 40:3, 96:1, 98:1, 144:9, 149:1; Revelations 5:9, 14:3).

The New Song isn’t about your preference or what you desire or love to sing, but what Yahweh desires or wants to hear. The New Song comes from the flow of Heaven down to earth. Some ministries do not flow in the new song, fluently or at all, due to their obsession with the old. We wonder why we can’t move forward into the deeper things of God or struggle with walking in the new, Yahweh has ordained for us.

Quit singing the same old same old songs. Open your ears and open your hearts and SING THE NEW SONG OF HEAVEN! (Luke 5:36-39)

No more camping out in yesteryear, move forward into the NEW OF WHAT HEAVEN HAS FOR YOU!

How Do You Treat Yourself?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Nobody can stop you from being loyal to the past, but you. No one can stop you from undervaluing, undermining, and discounting yourself, at the expense of someone else, or some substance, or some detriment you’re feeding or doing to your body. Every time you speak death over, hate on, or disparage yourself, you clip your wings from flying.

Prayer Of Repentance

by Hazel Straub

Today Lord God, I submit my will to your will and humble myself, before you. I turn from my wicked ways and return to you with a changed tender heart. My ears attuned to the Word of God, fully aligned, obedient and following your commands. Submitted and surrendered to your will not mine. Staying in your loving presence, listening, holding onto your hand and not letting go. My trust is in you and I will walk by faith, in your grace, through Jesus, my Lord. Amen

For this is what the high and majestic one says,
    the one who fills the eternal realm with glory,
    whose name is Holy:
    “I dwell in high and holy places
    but also with the bruised and lowly in spirit,
    those who are humble and quick to repent.
I dwell with them to revive the spirit of the humble,
    to revive the heart of those who are broken over their sin.
(Isaiah 57:15 TPT)

Worshipping God Brings Victory!

by Hazel Straub

Problems are common to everyone. Doubt, fear, worry, and negative emotions, act as fuel, to keep the challenges alive. Complaining, steals our ability to fight. However, when we turn our focus to God, with an attitude of praise, worship, and rejoicing, the issues cannot consume and grip us.

View the negative circumstances, as an opportunity to overcome and become stronger. Worship God, in the midst of the storm. Praise God immediately, focusing on him, not the problem.

God wants to give you the strategy and resources from heaven to overcome. Jesus told us to pray, “Father, your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) There is no lack in heaven and God delights to give to you abundantly, whatever you need. Thanksgiving gives us energy, strategy and resources. from heaven for victorious abundant life!

Ancient Judah was faced with huge enemy army and a prophet gave them this strategy. He said,Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:15 NLT) Then the people worshipped and praised God and God supernaturally defeated their enemies. What he did for them, he will do for you!

Keep It Moving!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You are divinely gifted, remain FOCUSED, AND KEEP IT MOVING!!!!!!!!!!

Trust The Lord

by Hazel Straub

Trust me, trust me, trust me,  giving all of your heart
Trust me, love me, quickly obey me, your worship part
Trust me, I am faithful and true, focus and come to me
Trust me, obey my Word “Come to me,” blessings you see

Trust me, trust me, do not lean on your mind, or intellect
Trust me, trust me, listen, obey your pure worship perfect
Trust me, in the storms, earthquakes, pain, circumstances
Trust me, receive my love your loving obedience enhances

Trust me, trust me, match my heartbeat with your heartbeat
Trust me, trust me, abide in the vine, resting and complete
Trust me, trust me, quick to obey the best worship to me
Trust me, trust me, focus your eyes on me, blessings see

Jesus replied, “Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place. But those who don’t love me will not obey my words. The Father did not send me to speak my own revelation, but the words of my Father. (John 14:23-24 TPT)

Who Do You Rely On?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If you rely on your voice for livelihood, your life support will be temporal and short. However, if you rely on God’s voice, for your livelihood, your life support will be eternal and more abundant.

A Key To An Abundant Life

by Hazel Straub

Show mercy and compassion first, to yourself, before you can give it to others. If you fail to be merciful to yourself, you will have none to give to others. We receive mercy and compassion from our Heavenly Father, and need to extend it to ourselves first, so we can show others the same. No criticism, condemnation, and judgment in your flesh, for yourself or others. God is merciful and compassionate to us. Also, in the same manner we receive forgiveness, forgive ourselves for mistakes and extend it to others. Giving mercy, compassion, and forgiveness are the best gifts, we can give to ourselves and to everyone else.

What you measure to others, comes back to you. This is a key to having an abundant life, with overflow!

Overflow with mercy and compassion for others, just as your heavenly Father overflows with mercy and compassion for all.” Jesus said, “Forsake the habit of criticizing and judging others, and you will not be criticized and judged in return. Don’t condemn others and you will not be condemned. Forgive over and over, and you will be forgiven over and over. Give generously and generous gifts will be given back to you, shaken down to make room for more. Abundant gifts will pour out upon you with such an overflowing measure that it will run over the top! The measurement of your generosity becomes the measurement of your return.” (Luke 6:36-38 TPT)

Banquet With Yahweh In Enemies’ Attack

by Hazel Straub

The enemy tries to intimidate, and rule by fear. But our covenant keeping God is much stronger and always wins over evil. He prepares a lavish banquet meal, for us, featuring our favorite dishes just because he loves us.

Amazingly, he prepares and serves this savory tasty feast, in the presence of our enemies. Our God, Yahweh, exists in our present and abundantly blesses us with a special covenant, celebration meal because of his love and delight in us. He pours the wine until it overflows, because he wants us, joyful. Healing oil pours over our head.  Yahweh captures our attention and we forget the enemies that look with harmless envy, unable to stop our blessings. Yahweh’s goodness and mercy triumphs over our enemies!

Enjoy the banquet and rejoice in Yahweh!

You spread out a table before me,
provisions in the midst of attack from my enemies;
You care for all my needs, anointing my head with soothing, fragrant oil,
filling my cup again and again with Your grace.
Certainly Your faithful protection and loving provision will pursue me
where I go, always, everywhere.
I will always be with the Eternal,
in Your house forever.
(Psalm 23:5-6 VOICE)

Decree And See Light

by Hazel Straub

Where do you fix your gaze? Is your focus on regrets, failures, or on others’ flaws and shortcomings that you have experienced? Do you view yourself as a victim or an overcomer? Your life transforms when you think about the promises of God for you. Decree them out loud, daily, and you will know your true identity and experience abundant life.

You will also decree a thing, and it will be established to you. Light will shine on your ways. (Job 22:28 WEB)

I am a lily among the thorns. (Song of Solomon 2:2)  

I am loved. (1 John 4:10)

I am in Christ, a new creation, the old has passed and everything is new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I am being changed into the likeness of Christ. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

I am the salt of the earth. (Matthew 5:13)

I am the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14)

God Is Faithful!

by Hazel Straub

How many of you have complained about the shakings, the storms, and unplanned circumstances in your life? Nothing is ever wasted, in our lives. God uses difficult fiery things to purify, revive, refine, and restore us. No matter what happens, know that God is faithful to complete the good work, he started in our lives. Raise praise to God because he is good, all the time!

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, for he directs your paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD and depart from evil. (Proverbs 3:5-7 KJV)

And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you. (Philippians 1:6 AMPC)

Pursue God Because He Delights In You!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Prophesy over your life today: “No more negative or hurtful things, from my past, will hinder me from my future. I am passed my past and embracing my promising future.”

Jehovah created everything before you were born, so that when you arrived here, you would already have everything you need. However, He wants you to want what he has for you.

Quit living life, like this is all life has to offer You. Pursue God and what he has for you. You can do it, you can have it, just because He loves you and delights in you…Selah

Faith Is . . .

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Faith is not believing in something that is not there, that is fantasy. Faith is not believing that it is going to happen, but Faith is. God has already brought it to pass. The moment you come into agreement with God and speak it, is the moment it is translated from the spirit realm, into the earth realm.

You have the POWER! You have the FAITH! Don’t allow the past to prevent you from moving in TODAY! I COMMAND YOUR SPIRIT TO LIVE IN THE REALM OF IT IS ALREADY DONE, TODAY!

How Big Is God?

by Hazel Straub

During your day, you hear many voices, speaking doom, gloom, and negativity. Do not become the devil’s prophet acting as his mouthpiece. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV)

It is important to renew your mind, with the Word of God. Be still and know that God is speaking. Listen to him and keep your focus on him, not the problems or circumstances. As you you listen and develop a relationship with him, you will know he is your Problem Solver and much bigger than any of your issues. When your thoughts are focused on God, who loves and cares for you, fears flee. Speak God’s solutions and see them manifest, as you agree with him! God created us in his image, he spoke the world into existence. Our mouth is powerful because we speak either blessings or curses with our mouths!

You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways. (Job 22:28 AMPC)
