Light Reigns!

by Hazel Straub

God of all provision, speaks and it happens. He speaks into the darkness and says,” Let there be light and it is light.” (Genesis 1:3)

God created us in his likeness We have the power of life or death in what we say. (Proverbs 18:21) Agree with God and speak light into the darkness that wants to overtake you, your children, your place of employment, your city, your nation. Decree: “Let there be light.” Light reigns!

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5 ESV)

Just Believe!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It’s not about where you’ve been but where you’re going.
It’s Not what you have but whom you have in your life
Not about your skills and ability
But what God can do through your humility.

Not about the points or the final score
But about you doing your best and seeking for more.
Not about Bout all knowledge and all collegiate degrees
But revelation of who you are and in the mirror who you see.

It’s not about how it seems, but that you simply, believe

Well Spoken Words

by Hazel Straub

Choosing our words carefully, turns them golden and adorned with silver. Our words will then be cherished. When we receive wise correction, humbly, it makes us better and adorns our life with beauty.

A well-spoken word at just the right moment
is like golden apples in settings of silver.
To an attentive ear, constructive criticism from a truly wise person
is like an earring or jewelry made of fine gold.

(Proverbs 25:11-12 Voice)

Faith In God

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Since God is only moved by and responds to faith, then like your Father, don’t be moved by anything or anyone except your Faith in God. His word is the Final Authority in your life…Selah

Caleb Gets Breakthrough!

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

by Hazel Straub

The definition of breakthrough is overcoming or penetrating an obstacle or restriction. All of us have areas in our lives where we cry to God for help in overcoming obstacles. We are in a season of breakthrough. The key to breakthrough is having a determined spirit that will not take no for an answer and will trust God.

Caleb was one of twelve spies sent by Moses to report on the Promised Land before the Israelites entered the land. Ten of the spies brought a bad report and spread fear to the people. Caleb was a man of a different spirit and desired to serve God wholeheartedly. He along with Joshua tried to persuade the Israelites to go and take the land. They, however, refused and wanted to kill him instead. Caleb had to wander in the wilderness for forty years with the children of Israel, although he had done nothing wrong. All of his generation died in the wilderness except himself and Joshua.

At age 85, he decided to take his mountain in the Promised Land that had giants and strong fortifications. He remembered that God had promised him this land forty-five years earlier. Caleb knew with God’s help he would be able to take the fortresses of the giants and drive them out of his land because he was strong and vigorous. The breakthrough for Caleb came because he followed Yahweh the God of Israel fully and was not afraid of warfare. Caleb knew that Yahweh was watching out for him and would help him overcome his enemies. He took his land and received his increase for himself and his descendants.

Today it is time to believe that you have the strength and power to come through the attack of the enemy, victorious. Follow God with your whole heart, believe his promises, worship him and overcome the giants occupying your inheritance.

When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild.
But whoever obeys the law is joyful.
(Proverbs 29:18 NLT)

You Are Approved!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Stop giving the “devil and people” power, authority, and say so over your life that is supposed to be reserved for God. You live by every word that proceeds out of the Mouth of God! God has already approved of you. YOU ARE APPROVED. Quit drinking from the approval addiction sewer. You are the HEAD not the tail, you don’t belong down there anyway! You have new mercies everyday, because God BELIEVES IN YOU.

Yahweh raised Jesus up, so that you could COME UP, THINK UP, LIVE UP, AND BE SEATED UP IN HEAVENLY PLACES WITH HIM. You have HEAVEN’S APPROVAL. You are FAVORED by God! He CHOSE YOU, before the foundation of the world. You are ACCEPTED in the Beloved.

What God says about you, is coming to Pass! I prophesy, today, Resurrection Day in your life, you are rising UP out of the grave of what people think of you, and living in the Power of what Yahweh thinks of you. You are rising up out of the grave of what’s been done to you and what you’ve done to you, and living in the realm of God’s grace and prophetic word over you. Be resurrected from double-mindedness and instability, and live in the realm of supernatural wisdom and unwavering faith. You are being roused to believe in your dreams again.

I speak a quickening to what has lain dormant and latent within you. You are being resurged from every spirit that has tried to ruin your indestructible destiny. You are the giant being awakened from his sleep. You are the movement of God that someone is waiting for. You represent the nation of worshipers running to The Lord. Be resurrected from what happened to you, and live in the realm of what Yahweh is making happen for you.

Be resurrected from the things that were meant to kill you, hold your head UP, AND LIVE, LIVE, LIVE! I speak Resurrection Power and Anointing to your spirit and your life today! I SPEAK DEATH TO EVERY THOUGHT, SEED, AND WORD CURSE OF DEATH, WITHIN YOUR MIND, SOUL, AND BODY.

I DECREE THE LIFE OF CHRIST, THE INCORRUPTIBLE SEED OF THE WORD, AND THE BLESSING OF GOD UPON YOUR LIFE, TODAY. They can’t hold you back, nor keep you down, because JESUS IS RAISING YOU UP!!!!!!!!!!! (Admit it, GRACE, KEEPS LIFTING ME HIGHER!)

Live A Joyful Life!

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh chose you to live in this time and season. He knew this was your time to live and overcome. He has a special plan and destiny for you. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT)

Speak to the mountain that opposes you and keeps you from fulfilling what God has for you. Decree it removed and cast it down, with no doubt or unbelief. Then you will live in resurrection power, with no obstruction to your experiencing a joyful life of worship and praise to Yahweh, who is more than enough for all your needs. New doors that you never imagined will open for you, to walk through into new realms and opportunity that he planned for you. Rejoice in the Lord!

Father I Worship You

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I’m taking new courses on love one on one, and love one on people and I’m determined to graduate with honors, by the grace of God.

I’m taking my focus off of people and what they’re trying to do and focusing on the One who can actually do something about it. Father I worship You!

Praise And Worship To My Maker

by Hazel Straub

My eyes I lift to the Maker of heaven and earth
My focus on his forgiveness and goodness births
A new altitude and attitude with greater gratitude
There is no place for depression, moods or platitudes

I lift my eyes out of the mundane and routine
No greater love, mercy and grace ever seen
The horizon clouds of despair, gloom and doom
Disappear in the presence of our Bridegroom

My eyes behold his loving care and provision
His presence and nearness breaks fear’s prison
He never, not ever, forsakes or leaves me stranded
His angels protect and minister as he commanded

Lifting my eyes and behold his radiant beauty
His glory surrounds and clothes me like rubies
My uplifted vision has changed my position
As  I give him all my worship and recognition

For it was always in his perfect plan  to adopt  us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace —for the same love he has for the Beloved, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure! (Ephesians 1:5-6 TPT)

Pursue What God Has For You!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Prayer To Listen To Abba God

by Hazel Straub

Abba Father God,

I am hungry for your presence. Today I press into you, Abba God and pursue you, like a young child. I shut out all the distractions that would keep me from your presence and quiet my mind. I release and set aside my agenda, cares, concerns and my list of requests. Right now, I press through all my issues to spend time with you.

My quest is to know what is on your heart. I want to listen to your heart and spend time in your presence. You have given all for me and I want to know what is important to you. My desire is know you and your vision, passions and your heart. I wait for you and will not leave you alone, Lord. May your vision fill my eyes and heart, as your friend. Speak to me for I am listening to your voice and will obey. Without your presence and voice, I cannot live because you are life.

Amen

My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me. I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands. (John 10:27-28 TPT)

Approved By God!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The more you realize God has approved you and given you authority, the less you will seek the approval and authority of others. People pleasers live to hear people say, “You are important.” However, God pleasers live to hear the Father say, “You are my beloved in whom I am well pleased.”

Trust And Cling To The Vine

by Hazel Straub

Trust in God, means clinging to him. A cluster of grapes through its connection to a small vine, has substance and grows.  At times, we may not see Yahweh, in the midst of our perception of huge troubles. However, Yahweh, nourishes and sustains us, when we cling to him, like the grape cluster to the vine, giving us all we need to grow and mature. God is our help and support.

But in the day that I’m afraid, I lay all my fears before you
and trust in you with all my heart.
What harm could a man bring to me?
With God on my side, I will not be afraid of what comes.
The roaring praises of God fill my heart
as I trust (cling to) his promises. (Psalm 56:3-4 TPT)

“I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from me you are powerless. (John 15:5 TPT)

Pursue God’s Presence

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

We can’t afford to stay in the same old wineskin–mindskin of yesterday, it will not hold or advance the new wine of the Holy Spirit, the present truth of God. My heart bleeds this morning; I can’t live in yesterday. No one after drinking the old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘”the old is better.” The old is rooted in the old systems of man, comfortability and familiarity. The new is rooted in the Kingdom of God, it’s uncomfortable and unfamiliar.

They pour new wine into new wineskins, so that both are preserved. How can we maintain the same comfortable routine, sing the same familiar songs and minister from the same old systems and keep the new? We are finding more important our song selections, our pre-selected sermons, and what impresses us, versus the fresh wineskin presence of the Lord and what impresses God. Pursue the presence of God and refuse to live in yesterday.

Prayer For A New Day

by Hazel Straub

Today Lord, I open my heart to you and place all my broken places before you. I turn to you and leave my wicked ways behind me, and surrender my life to you. Purify my heart and cleanse me from within of all my sin. I dedicate myself to you, today.

Thank you for a fresh start. Your ways are wonderful and I praise you for renewing my life. I glorify your name and praise you for a new day through Christ Jesus! Amen

God made my life complete
when I placed all the pieces before him.
When I cleaned up my act,
he gave me a fresh start.

Indeed, I’ve kept alert to God’s ways;
I haven’t taken God for granted.
Every day I review the ways he works,
I try not to miss a trick
.

I feel put back together,
and I’m watching my step.
God rewrote the text of my life
when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.

Part Of Worship Is Waiting!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You must stay in a state of repose, until something expected happens
The length of the wait, I really don’t know, but faith halts the dampens’
Waiting is a part of worship, being available to God in readiness
Concentrating on what He wants alleviates the pettiness.

Continue looking forward eagerly to what God will do
The Father’s heart is to bless you more than you desire him to
Keep your “expectors” on in expectation of the Father
Free yourself from the expectation of others, then you will not be bothered.

However, be grateful for the people in your life who are stalwart, and unswervingly loyal
Who wait in expectancy of God with you, now that’s simply royal.
Remember, waiting is seasonal, it’s only a test
The line between A and B is called the “process.”

Though the vision may tarry it will surely come to pass
Ask the Father to renew your strength in order that you can outlast
Mental anguish, anxiety, discouragement, or worried
You’re not waiting on a person, you’re waiting on God, who cannot be hurried

Hope deferred makes the heart-sick,
When we’re counting the clock’s tick-tock-tick
But a tree of life is a desire fulfilled
When you’re worshiping God at will for His will

Therefore, soar over the ground until your prey appears
Then lie in wait and ambush all unbelief, doubt, and fears
In this season of great change, great challenges, and great trial
Experiencing delay with the Lord isn’t always denial.

Waiting usually implies staying for a limited time for God’s definite purpose
Whatever you are waiting for, remember, God has it in surplus
The Lord is not rejecting you although his time may overlap your date
Just a prophetic reminder, “He’s not saying “no,” He’s just saying,”Wait”

Father, renew our strength and cause us to mount up with wings of great faith like the eagle’s. Let us run and not become weary, walk and not lose heart or courage as we “wait” upon You.

May the Father strengthen and encourage our hearts to wait on him today! Comprehending that He’s not saying no, He’s just saying “Wait.”

Doorway Of Hope

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! 

I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt. (Hosea 2:15 NIV)

Faith In Action

by Hazel Straub

In the kingdom of God, we live by faith in the finished work of Jesus, on the cross. The motivation for our victorious life springs from faith, not our circumstances. We know the kingdom of God, within us, is unshakable, above and beyond our circumstances and problems.

Faith in action sees Jesus’ victory, as our victory, with the enemy defeated.  We tread on the enemy not the reverse. Our portion is life, abundant and free.

Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (Hebrews 11:1 AMP)

God’s Plans For Your Life

by Hazel Straub

Pray to receive God’s dream for your life that he wrote in his book for you. Expect God to help you fulfill your destiny, as you put feet to his dream. Never quit and be faithful, to what he has entrusted to you. No matter how long the wait, know that God always brings completion to his promises. Recognize what God is doing in your life-walk. Be thankful for his presence and his touch on your life.

You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.

True Worship

“True Worship” is what God is calling for.
 Without it no man shall see the Lord.
Oh, I will live right, holy in Your sight.
Pure and true, just like You.

A true worshipper, is Lord, what I long to be.
Before You, when no one else can see
I worship You, holy, holy in Your sight.
Pure and true just like You.
True, true worshipper, true,

(Lord I wanna be)… A true worshipper.

Prayer For A Heart That Loves . . .

by Hazel Straub

Abba Father,

My heart, my way of thinking, my will, and emotions, I surrender and give to you. Soften and tenderize the hard places in my heart and make it soft and pliable.

Ignite and consume my heart, so that I am aflame with love for your son, Jesus and you. Give me eyes that are solely focused on him, captivated and motivated by his love. Transform my heart with explosions of your love, until I am contagious with love, mercy and compassion, for family, friends, neighbors and enemies.

Let the expression of love and mercy, in my life, be a sign and wonder to others. May the image of your son, Jesus, be what is seen in me.

So be it!

Thank you, Abba, love from your beloved child

The light of God’s love shined within us  when he sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through him. This is love:  He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins. Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life! (1 John 4:9-11 TPT)

Enjoy The Joy Of Spring

by Hazel Straub

Spring season is a time, when kings go to war. (2 Samuel 11:1) The call of God is to war for the promises that he gave us. It is time, to get rid of the heavy winter clothing that served well in the last bitter frigid season but hinders our progress, in the warmer weather of Spring.

This  season calls for spring cleaning, to change our outlook and put on the mind of Christ. Lay aside everything that hinders and stunts your growth. Change your focus, immerse yourself in Christ, his love, and abundant life. Rejoice! Wear clothes of light, joy, delight, peace, goodness, faithfulness, and enjoy new life, with your new identity.

 I will sing and greatly rejoice in Yahweh!
    My whole being vibrates
    with shouts of joy in my God!
    For he has dressed me with salvation
    and wrapped me in the robe of his righteousness!
I appear like a bridegroom on his wedding day,
    decked out with a beautiful sash,
    or like a radiant bride adorned with sparkling jewels.

Judgment In The Saints’ Favor!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will own it forever—yes, for ever and ever.

As I watched, this horn was waging war against the saints and defeating them, until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom. (Daniel 7:18, 21-22)

You have invincible FAVOR!

Problems Speaking Loudly?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If your problems are speaking louder than you, then you need to speak the Word over your problems. Speak the Word! The Word of God is just as powerful spoken out of your mouth, as if spoken out of the mouth of God.

God Is With You!

by Hazel Straub

Feel like you’re alone as you experience very difficult things, on your life’s journey? Good news, you are never alone and not the only one experiencing difficult challenges. Many others also face hard issues throughout their journey and grow through it, into breakthrough.

God promises that he will be with you wherever you may go. He sticks close besides you and helps to strengthen you and even carries you, during your season of hardship. Others also support you with prayer and encouragement. You are not alone!

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 NRSV)

Resurrection!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Just like the devil thought when they had Jesus on the cross, that this was his greatest victory but it turned out as his biggest defeat.

What they thought was going to be your greatest defeat is going to be your GREATEST VICTORY! What they thought was dead, is about to be RESURRECTED.  The way you used to think has changed to the THOUGHTS OF GOD, TODAY! He is always mindful of you…Selah

Rely And Trust In Jesus

by Hazel Straub

What you think on and what you look at determines who you become. If we think about our mistakes and regrets, depression accompanies us. On the other hand, if we speak and think about Scripture, eating, chewing and thinking about a certain promise, it becomes part of our inner self.

Looking and thinking about Jesus as our Redeemer, Healer, Deliverer and Help, keeps us relying on him, not our circumstances. Healing of trauma, emotions and body will occur as doubt leaves, and trust in the Lord remains. We know Jesus, who is the Truth and the Truth sets us free.

Let the words of my mouth be for your pleasure, and the meditation of my heart before you, Lord Jehovah, my helper and my Savior.  (Psalm 19:14 ABPE)

True Worship

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

More importantly, God wants to hear our HEARTS when we worship, not our song selection, skills, and abilities. I’m coming back to the Heart of worship because it’s all about His Heart, not ours. His standards, not ours. His People, not ours.

True Worship is giving God what he desires DAILY, not a Cain offering.

In Yahweh I Do Not Fear

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh is my revelation-light 

and the source of my salvation.

I fear no one!

I’ll never turn back and run, for you, Yahweh,

surround and protect me.

When evil ones come to destroy me,

they will be the ones who turn back.

My heart will not fear even if an army rises to attack.

I will not be shaken, even if war is imminent.” (Psalm 27:1-3 TPT)

Where Is The Wealth?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

A friend asked, “Where is all this Wealth God promised me?”

God said, “It’s in your giftings, use what I gave you and I will make room for you. The Wealth is in people, (true covenant relationships) and your gifts, fight to keep them (people) and don’t neglect to use them (gifts).”

Pray With Bold Belief!

Photo by Marcelo Chagas on Pexels.com

by Hazel Straub

Daddy God loves you and freely gives without rebuke, blame or shame, when you ask.  Make your requests with full trust and confidence, without hesitation. When you hesitate in your mind, the thought process resembles extremely unstable waves tossed in the wind. Do not expect an answer from Daddy God, when you waver in doubt, with two minds about him.

Daddy God answers those who make requests with bold belief. Unfurl your umbrella over your head, confident of an immediate downpour, although it hasn’t rained for many months!

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open. (James 1:5-8 MSG)

God’s Provision

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Whatever God has told you to do, he has already provided the means, for you. Everything pertaining to life and godliness. Do what you can and God will do the rest!

Yahweh Answers And Rescues

by Hazel Straub

Discouraged, anxious, and stressed? No matter how the enemy tries to discourage and defeat us, when we cry to Yahweh, for help, he rescues us. He hears our groans, cries, and prayers, and answers us.  His love never fails and he never gives up on us. Praise his name!

I love you, O Yahweh, my strength.
Yahweh is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call upon Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies. (Psalm 18:1-3 ESV)

Prayer To First Deal With Me

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

First, “me,” Lord. Oftentimes, we can see someone else’s wrong, spirit, or fault, while neglecting to see our own. Wouldn’t be a sad thing to discern all these things that are wrong with everyone else, only to discover that the same things are living in oneself?

Try this prayer: before or when you see something in someone else.
“Take it out of “me,” first Lord. Then I can minister to others in your love and humility.”

You Are Blessed!

by Hazel Straub

Yahweh kneels before you with his arms open wide to you, his much-loved child. Yahweh places a hedge of protection around you. Yahweh turns his face towards you with radiant acceptance. Yahweh walks with you today, giving provision and sustaining you. Yahweh provides you with his love, friendship and help. Yahweh’s favor goes before you. Yahweh releases you to know and to walk in your uniqueness and gifts. Yahweh sets in order all you need for wholeness  and completeness. (Numbers 6:24-26)

Loved And Beloved

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Approved by the Beloved
Nothing to prove
I don’t know what to do
But I’m crazy in love with you

I don’t know what to say
But I’ll do it anyway
I’ll make a fool of myself
For you
Because I love you

God Is With You In The Difficulties

by Hazel Straub

Your difficult circumstances are not permanent but temporary. God turns every situation in which we find ourselves, for our good. He loves us, has a destiny planned for each one, and is with us.

Joseph was betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery. He was in Egypt first ruling over a household, until falsely accused of rape and thrown into a dungeon. Then he spent years in in prison, where he learned the Egyptian culture and how Pharoah and his household worked, and ruled although a prisoner. These long years were difficult but got him positioned for his life destiny. Joseph chose forgiveness, submitted himself to God, and enjoyed God’s favor. He ended up ruling Egypt and stored up grain for a season of famine. Not only Egypt but the entire region and their nations were preserved, along with Joseph’s brothers and their families.

But Joseph replied, “Do not be afraid. Am I in the place of God? As for you, what you intended against me for evil, God intended for good, in order to accomplish a day like this – to preserve the lives of many people. Therefore do not be afraid. I will provide for you and your little ones.” So Joseph reassured his brothers and spoke kindly to them … (Genesis 50:19-21 BSB)

What Is Your Greatest Treasure?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

“Be generous. Give to the poor. Get yourselves a bank that can’t go bankrupt, a bank in heaven far from bank robbers, safe from embezzlers, a bank you can bank on. It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is,is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.” (Luke 12:33-34 MSG)

Man’s heart is God’s greatest treasure, while he patiently waits for His heart to become man’s greatest treasure…

Never Forget-God Never Gives Up On You!

by Hazel Straub

Worried that you have gone too far, for God to welcome you? Never, no never does God give up on you! No matter how many times you have failed him, he still roots for you and loves you without restraint. He gives you the life of his son Jesus to save, redeem, and restore. He bestows wonderful gifts to you. No matter how far you stray, his love is there for you. No matter how rebellious you act, when you make the slightest movement towards him, he runs to greet you and throws a party to celebrate. His love is outrageous, lavish and never fails. He loves you and never gives up on you. So don’t give up on yourself! Run to Daddy God and he will welcome you!

Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.  (1 Corinthians 1:7-9 MSG)

Take Charge Of Your Day!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God said, “Be proactive not reactive.” Every action you make towards what you want, brings what you want closer to you. Don’t make the mistake of letting it seem distant or it will become far from you, because of the lack of action.

“The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous, to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.” (Proverbs 10:3-5 KJV)
“He that diligently seeketh good procureth favor.” (Proverbs 11:27 KJV)

Even your thoughts are considered steps towards action or lack thereof.”The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.” (Proverbs 21:5 KJV)

Yahweh says, “Get a goal, make a plan.”

Say, “Yahweh, normally I would be working now, so I’m working in preparation for my next job assignment. So many hours a day, so many days a week, I’m dedicating to the job search. I’m trusting that by such and such date, I will have a job. ”

Make a plan! Set a goal! It’s not over! You’re not over. Just maintain productive activity for your goal not just activity. Take charge of your day, get up early, command your morning and capture your day, Receive what you desire!

Used For The Purposes Of God

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Being used is not always a bad thing, it depends on how you are being used. There is always a positive connotation to counter every negative implication. The word “use” means to employ for a purpose, consume entirely, or utilize. God is “using” you and is going to “use” you, even greater for his Purpose beyond your human comprehension!
