How To Live In Peace

by Hazel Straub

What is the secret to living in peace, without worries? Keep your focus on God and speak to him about your concerns and listen as he answers you. His peace will saturate you and guard your way of thinking and living. You will go through storms, know he is with you, and keeps you safe. Enjoy God through Jesus!

Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ. (Philippians 4:6-7 TPT)

Worried And Anxious?

by Hazel Straub

Have you wasted time worrying? When you concentrate on the problem and are anxious, it is pride. Not trusting God to care for you, you put yourself in the center rather than God, your provider. We fret about provision, when he has already said he will give us all that we need. Doubt, fear and unbelief, join pride and cloud our vision, instead of trust and faith in God’s love for us. Seek him and his kingdom first and all your needs are supplied!

Thank you Lord, our provider, who cares for us!

 “And why would you worry about your clothing? Look at all the beautiful flowers of the field. They don’t work or toil, and yet not even Solomon in all his splendor was robed in beauty like one of these!  So if God has clothed the meadow with hay, which is here for such a short time and then dried up and burned, won’t he provide for you the clothes you need—you of little faith?

“So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require?

“So above all, constantly seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness, then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.” (Matthew 6:28-34 TPT)

Breakthrough With Your Mouth!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Quit allowing the devil, to take over everything, in your life because you haven’t realized the POWER OF THE PROPHETIC, IN YOUR MOUTH! All God is waiting on you to do is, OPEN UP YOUR MOUTH!

You decide, not the enemy, not your circumstances, and not anyone else. You shall decree a thing and it shall be established and the favor of the Lord, shall shine upon your ways, (Job 22:28)

Let the redeemed of the Lord, SAY SO, (Psalms 107:2)! Death and life are in the power of your tongue, (Proverbs 18:21).

You make your way, with your MOUTH. What you talk about, you bring about! You have the DNA AND AUTHORITY OF GOD. Shut the mouth of your enemies and speak your destiny, your future, and whatsoever, God gives you utterance to say! Your BREAKTHROUGH IS IN YOUR MOUTH!

Daddy God The Best Father!

by Hazel Straub

Our Daddy God models the best father with his incredible love for us. He loves us and fashioned us in his own image. He sent his one and only son to give his life as a ransom for us, redeem, deliver and heal us. He gave everything so we could be his beloved children. Yet he has no spoiled children, as we go through trials and learn to trust it will work for our best.

Know he  treasures you and gives you extravagant value. Rest and receive his love. He loves you so much!

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads and all their children!

We know, dear brothers and sisters, that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own people. (1 Thessalonians 1:4 NLT)

Forgive And Forgiven

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If you want to be completely forgiven of your past, totally relieved of all your debt, and your name mercifully, cleared. Then forgive others of their past, relieve others of their debts, and release mercy on others. Treat them as if they’ve never done anything wrong.

Holy Spirit, raise my love level, to LOVE LIKE YOU…Selah

Weakness And God’s Grace

by Hazel Straub

Where is your focus? Do you mull on and worry about all your problems or do you look at the Lord, with thankfulness? Flying on an aircraft at 35,000 feet, your point of view is much different than viewing things on the ground level. In the same way, God’s grace gives us his empowerment, despite our weaknesses. In his presence we get the ability to go through the difficulties and gain a different perspective. Our issues do not disqualify us. God asks for our surrender to him and he gives us his grace through Christ, despite our weaknesses. Thank God for his grace!

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to relieve me of this.  But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10 TPT)

Trials And Tests In Life

by Hazel Straub

Concerned about recent changes in your life? God equips you with all the tools and experience you will need in the new season of your life. It is no accident that you have gone through the fire and come out not smelling of smoke. The lessons that you learned inspires others.

Nothing is wasted in your life journey. The times that you despaired and wanted to quit but did not, blazed a trail for others to follow. Your experiences brought a greater reliance on the Lord. Your tests and trials cause you to understand independence from God is futile. He brings you into a broad place where blessings and equipping will come to you quickly. There is much for you to do with the Lord and he gives you more than you could imagine. Fully equipped, as his ambassador of love and hope.

Now may the God of peace—
who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus,
the great Shepherd of the sheep,
and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood—
may he equip you with all you need
for doing his will.
May he produce in you,
through the power of Jesus Christ,
every good thing that is pleasing to him.
All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.
(Hebrews 13:20-21 NLT)

Nothing Is Impossible With God!

by Hazel Straub

Are you complaining? “It’s too hard! I cannot continue, the load is too heavy. I want to quit!”

Daddy God replies: “My child, “I” can’t do anything. Nothing is impossible when you trust and depend on me, not your own abilities. Let go of the burden and your pride. Then it is “we” on the journey. Cast your cares and burdens on me because I care for you. My desire is to carry you and your burdens. Reliance on me will cause you to finish well because I care for you and love you. Fear not!”

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you. (Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT)

The Blood Of The Lamb Of God

by Hazel Straub

Those who believe and trust in Jesus, as Lord, have a new identity. They come into right standing with God. through the blood of Jesus that washes away the shame, condemnation, sin and all limitations. Their nature transforms by the blood that busts demons and sets the captive free. It cleanses believers from all sin, past, present, and in the future.

Jesus, our Messiah, gave his life’s blood, to cleanse and change us into his image. We overcome by his blood. Demons flee from the blood because they are defeated. Our reality is God’s mercy and grace through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We die to our flesh and Jesus lives in us. We are new creations in him.

Thank you, Lord, for the power of your blood and your amazing love!

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,“Now the salvation, power, kingdom of our God,and the authority of his Messiah have come. The one accusing our brothers and sisters,the one accusing them day and night in the presence of our God,has been thrown out. They won the victory over him because of the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. They didn’t love their life so much that they refused to give it up. (Revelation 12:10-11 NOG)

Choose How To Live!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I wasn’t born this way
And this and thus may have happened to me
But it’s my choice in how I choose to live
I refuse to live in the mentality of what has happened to me
But rather in the reality of what Christ has done for me

Tasting freedom and I’m loving the flavor
Cause all that bondage is nothing but bitter!

Pure Worship

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If we would spend more time loving (like Christ loves us), honoring (publicly and private), helping (regardless of personal gain or sacrifice), encouraging (in word and deed), and interceding (praying God’s heart and not ours) for one another, we would have less time to do the opposite. The world would see the true manifestation of the sons of God, seriously take notice, recognize us as Christ disciples, and be drawn to Christ.

We cannot afford to continue to fight one another, or kill another person because of their weakness, our personal dislike, or preference, or wallow and pride ourselves in an offense. The first two letters of the devil’s name “de”, means to reverse in action. The enemy thrives on us reversing our warfare from him, to warring against each other.

We cannot die anymore from the spiritual welfare of the past moves, opinions, and systems of men. We must love to live, and live to love one another, as Christ loved the “church (his church)”, and gave himself for it…Pure worship.

The Spirit Of Selective Hearing

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

The Lord just revealed to me, the spirit of “SELECTIVE HEARING.”

“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good, the best, the fat, the wealth of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured, consumed, eaten up, with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭1:19-20‬) ‭

This is a powerful prophetic Word from the Lord. However, people with the spirit of selective hearing, only hear it this way, “I will eat the good the best, the fat, and the wealth of the land. I am not rebellious I just choose to do what I want, you know, I follow my heart or my feelings”. We the believers, the righteous of God, can’t live by subjectivity. This is the spirit of “SELECTIVE HEARING.”

Be careful Beloved, because this spirit treats the Bible like it’s a menu, at a restaurant, it doesn’t revere God’s prophets, as God’s spokespersons, but caters to the desires of the flesh, not the Spirit of the Lord. This spirit says what the flesh wants. Then perpetrates that God is saying it, when it’s actually the person speaking to themselves and being led by their emotions and not by pure devotion, in obedience to God.

In the natural, SELECTIVE HEARING means lacking the ability to distinct, identify or filter one voice or sound from the other. It is also characterized as the action, where people focus their attention, on a specific source of a sound or spoken words. They only hear what they want to hear. They only hear it the way they interpret it, in lieu of allowing the Holy Spirit to give the revelation.

Similarly, the spiritual realm, it is when a person lacks a pure heart to distinct, identify, or filter the voice of the enemy, the voice of human reasoning, from the Voice of the Lord. In other words, a person with SELECTIVE HEARING has a heart deficiency, their heart deceives them (Jeremiah 17:9-10).

A prayer I love to pray is: “Holy Spirit show me the errors of my ways, and expose any deception or untruth in my heart, because I want to please you, not my flesh.”

This is true worship, and pure hearing the Father…Selah

Sleep In Heavenly Peace


by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You may not know how, you may not know when, but God can, God is, and God has already done it for you. This is heavenly peace…

Knowing that you have heaven’s security, God is not a man that he should lie. He and his word are married and it will not return to him void but will accomplish what he sent it forth to do. God has given you all things richly to enjoy. God has given you all things about life and godliness.

“Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. (power of corporate intercession)
And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.”
(Acts 12:5-7)

Although, Peter’s circumstances were disturbing, he was not. Peter was facing trial, imprisoned, and guarded in chains, but none of this disrupted his inner peace. The peace that keeps us from falling to pieces. Heavenly peace is undisturbing peace…it keeps our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus!

Therefore, all the devil can do is con you out of what already belongs to you. “Sleep in heavenly peace…” God promised us sweet sleep in Proverbs 3:24, and that sweet sleep comes from his sweet heavenly peace.

I command the Shalom of Jehovah, the Prince of Peace, the heavenly peace of God to encumber the enemy from disturbing your inner peace, your rest, your sleep, your health, heart and mind in Christ Jesus. In Yeshua’s peace and Yeshua’s authority, sleep in heavenly peace…

Here Is My Heart LORD

Fruit forming heart-shape

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

God is more concerned about our hearts being correct, than our words…

Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thorn bushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks. Why do you call me, “Lord, Lord,” and do not do what I say? (Luke 6:44-46)

Prayer:
Create in me a heart to worship you and renew in me the spirit greater than David. Give me purity of heart, clarity of vision, and raise my love level, so I won’t carry the wrongs that I’ve done and have experienced, from others any longer. I want a pure flow and a clear way for the King. In relation to others, I want to be a pure flow and clear way to the King. My heart Lord…

You can pray the impossible and it will take place. If you’ve done the possible and the possible isn’t working, then it’s time to do the IMPOSSIBLE! All things are possible to them that believe “God.”

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a DOUBLE PORTION in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs.

Encouragement For The Weary

by Hazel Straub

No matter how exhausted you feel, be encouraged. Know that you would not be attacked by the enemy of your soul, unless you were a threat. Yahweh is with you and keeps you in perfect peace even in the middle of the storm. You will grow through this and come out on the other side stronger. Wait on Yahweh and rest in his grace!

Do not give up because it is time for Breakthrough and soaring on eagle’s wings!

Don’t you know? Haven’t you been listening?
Yahweh is the one and only everlasting God,
    the Creator of all you can see and imagine!
He never gets weary or worn out.
His intelligence is unlimited;
    he is never puzzled over what to do!
He empowers the feeble
    and infuses the powerless with increasing strength.
Even young people faint and get exhausted;
    athletic ones may stumble and fall.
But those who wait for Yahweh’s grace
    will experience divine strength.
They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles,
    run their race without growing weary,
    and walk through life without giving up.
(Isaiah 40:28-31 TPT)

Relationship Irritants

by Hazel Straub

Has irritation with another person, grown into obsession with their flaws? Their actions resulted in a reaction of frustration mixed with anger because their thorns caused you pain. You wanted them to change.

God, at this point, began to show you that you had the same things operating in your life. Your intolerance stemmed from the same faults in yourself. This person sharpens you like knife honed until it is sharp, due to the reset of the blade. The things that cause you grief make your character more like Jesus. Thank the Lord, for this one’s presence in your life and forgive.

In the same way that iron sharpens iron, a person sharpens the character of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17 VOICE)

What Is In The Heart Remains

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

If God hasn’t spoken to you, don’t make up anything. God wants our hearts not our words…

Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
(Matthew 15:7-9 KJV)

And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.” (Isaiah 29:12-14 KJV)

Some things are better caught (in the heart) and not taught (in the mind). When it’s in the head, it can be taken away, but when it’s in the heart, it remains.

Hungry And Thirsty For The Lord?

by Hazel Straub

The Lord says:

Do you have the same hunger for me as you have for food, possessions, comfort, and entertainment? Do you long to eat and drink the delicacies of my spiritual food and drink, more than anything else? I desire to sup with you but you are too busy. My heart yearns for you to spend more time with me, so I can satisfy your true thirst and hunger.

Rest and worship, as did the woman, who desired my presence more than the approval of men. She broke her alabaster box and poured its costly precious perfume, on my head, as fragrant worship that remained with me, when I laid down my life for you. (Matthew 26:6-13)

I long for worshipers that desire me more than anything else. It is time for you to cry out to me: Make me more hungry and thirsty for you, Jesus!

Oh, who will pay the price, to truly worship me, seeking me with their whole heart? Come away with me, my beloved.

“He has brought me to his banqueting place, And his banner over me is love [waving overhead to protect and comfort me]. (Song of Songs 2:4 AMP)

Yahweh is our shepherd and has promised that we will not lack. He guides and leads us into good pasture and to still water. We need to trust and follow his voice, when he asks us to take a step of faith and move from our old pasture. We have to trust him for excellent provision, as we leave the familiar. Procrastination and loving to do things our way have to go.

Many times we miss out on our blessings because we refuse to leave our comfort and follow his voice into unknown territory. When we listen and follow his voice, abundant provision above what we could imagine is ours. His presence goes with us and we can handle difficulty with ease, resting in his love. We leave the past behind us and have room to receive the precious gifts he has for us today.

Trust the Good Shepherd and follow where he leads!

Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd.    I always have more than enough. He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss. That’s where he restores and revives my life.  He opens before me the right path and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness so that I can bring honor to his name. Even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have!  Your authority is my strength and my peace.  The comfort of your love takes away my fear.  I’ll never be lonely, for you are near. (Psalm 23:1-4 TPT)

Live In God’s Presence

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to live in his presence through his son, Jesus. He gives us abundant life but we must receive it. Too often we let doubt and unbelief rule and merely survive not thrive. Instead, when we trust in God, rivers of living water will flow out of us, bringing life.

The words of our mouth come out of our heart. When we agree with God, the words we speak bring vibrant life and agree with his Word. Meditate on and speak his words over your life. They are life to your body, soul and spirit.

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil. It shall be health to your nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones. (Proverbs 3:5-8 AMPC)

Grace, Love, And Miracles Of Mercy

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Grace is the miracle working antidote for the poisonous injurious effects of sin, and Love is the cure-all for the paralyzing suggestions of fear, and mercy always disarms and renders void the antagonizing plots of self-sabotage. Extraordinary Grace, Incomparable Love, and Notable Miracles of Mercy be yours this day…Selah

Weary And Tired?

by Hazel Straub

What defines you? Is it your failures or successes? Everyone fails at some time. See what you can learn from it and move forward. Thomas Edison failed the first 1000 times before he successfully invented the light bulb. He made the choice to see the failures, as steps towards reaching his goal. Fear paralyzes, however, a change of perspective brings success, when we rely on God, as our provider and help. We choose how we view life.

Your attitude determines the outcome. Focus your eyes on Jesus, not the problems. When you fall, get back up, let Jesus encourage you and move forward.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.  Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. (Hebrews 12:1-3 NLT)

Live As Redeemed!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

It isn’t enough to know you’re redeemed, live as the redeemed. When the enemy reminds you of your past, remind him of your blood redemption.

Do Not Be Afraid!

Fear Not!!!

by Hazel Straub

What is really happening in our world? There is so much more to this life than what our physical eyes see. Ancient Israel had a prophet named Elisha, who would tell the Israelite king, where the enemy planned to attack. The attack would then be unsuccessful. (2 Kings 6: 8-23) The enemy king thought he had a traitor but learned it was the prophet of God, who was told by God, what the enemy king said, in his bedroom. So the enemy sent his troops to surround the city where Elisha was, as they hoped to capture him. Elisha’s servant was afraid when he saw the city surrounded, by an army with horses and chariots.

 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6:16-17 NIV)

Elisha was not worried because of his close relationship with God and dependence on him. He prayed and the enemy soldiers became blind and were led into the city. They got their sight back and were sent home. Then the raids from that enemy ceased.

Know that God protects us with angel armies that are greater than those with the enemy. Press into God in greater intimacy, listening to his Word, praying and listening for his response. Believers do not need to fear because God is for us and turns the bad into good. God is the same today as yesterday and forever. He loves, protects, speaks, helps, and answers today.

Lord, open our eyes so we may see the truth! God is with you.

Celebrate Your Diversity!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

When You divinely learn how to celebrate your DIVERSITY, your DESTINY, and your own IDENTITY, you kill the spirits of insecurity, jealousy, and comparison. Celebrate Yourself in the LORD!

God Watches Over You!

by Hazel Straub

No matter what emotions you feel, God loves each one and has angels working on your behalf. Many times we walk through life and do not realize how many times our lives are spared. Even in difficult times, God’s protective hand works on your behalf, even though you might not perceive it.

The enemy of our souls, according to Jesus in John 10:10, comes to steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus gives us life more abundantly. He preserves us in the midst of a pandemic, from evil, and provides us with his tender care. Our lives are preserved, until our earth time is completed.

Thank you Daddy God, for your tender care and for sending angels to protect and preserve us!

Are not all the angels ministering spirits sent out [by God] to serve (accompany, protect) those who will inherit salvation? [Of course they are!] (Hebrews 1:14 AMP)

And Suddenly…

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

and SUDDENLY it Came to Pass. (Isaiah 48:3)

God has some SUDDENLIES coming from the HEAVENLIES to you!

I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

Facing Difficulties?

by Hazel Straub

Seasons mark our life with variety, filled with joy, celebration, trials, sadness, and hope. When it seems that we experience the bitter, God always gives us his sweet love and mercy. If we experience health challenges, we cry out to him and the sweetness of his comforting healing presence, envelops us. Our relationships may crumble, when friends leave us, the sweetness of close friendship with Jesus counters the bitter. Losing one’s job and experiencing provision from unexpected sources, show the bitter with the sweet of God My Provider. Even bitter herbs, improve digestion, calm inflammation and bring healing.

Although the pressure might be severe, it causes the character of Jesus to develop. Diamonds are formed under great pressure and pearls form from irritants. Rejoice, the bitter works for your good and makes you beautiful inside and outside, so Jesus shines from you!

Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. (James 1:2-4 MSG)

God’s Blessings And Favor

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Thank Yahweh that all the blessings and favor he placed on your life, is not predicated on the jealous hearts, grudge holdings, toxic emotions, negative opinions, derogatory remarks, pharisaical judgments, false assumptions, false accusations, and destructive criticisms of others. Some people act, as if they have the patent, on Yahweh blessing you. Please, don’t put anyone in the place where only God is supposed to be. You cannot help it that God FAVORS You because HE LOVES YOU…Selah

Tempted To Quit?

by Hazel Straub

It is easy to get discouraged but if you don’t quit you win. Some resign prematurely, thinking that God won’t forgive or use them because of past failures. They then fail to press into God. Persist, get up, and continue, focus on Jesus not your issues. He is your help, strength, and refuge. He gives you new vision to conquer fear and his grace is sufficient for today.

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.(2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT)

What Breeds Selfishness, Entitlement And Discredit?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

There’s a spirit called over familiarity, it breeds the spirit of entitlement, selfishness, unthankfulness, and can cause one to discredit or devalue what one is given or whom is giving it.

Yahweh says, “Many want to hear a Word but few desire to believe the Word. Obey the Word, or even War in prayer concerning the Word, due to a spirit of over familiarity.”

God doesn’t owe you, we owe Him. He doesn’t have to bless you, he desires to bless you. One of the root causes of the lack of passion and fervency, in our receptivity, of the Word is some have become over familiar and therefore, have no attitude of gratitude but a sentiment of entitlement.

Who Is God’s Favorite Child?

by Hazel Straub

Who is God’s favorite child? You are his favorite child! His eyes twinkle with delight and his face creases in laughter, as he gazes at you. His love rescues you from hopelessness and despair. Restoration of your life, comes through receiving and trusting in his love, expressed through his son, Yeshua the Messiah. Rest in his marvelous healing, transforming love!

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. (1 John 4:9-1- TPT)

Make Your Life A Prayer!

by Hazel Straub

What is your reaction to lockdown, problems, challenges, and opposition? Do you complain and wonder why it is happening to you? Or do you praise the Lord and rejoice in him, despite troubles? When things go well, we take life for granted and may become complacent. Difficulties make us uncomfortable, exposes the lie and illusion that we are self-sufficient. Pain and hardship cause us to cry to God, in desperation. No one and nothing can satisfy us except God. He will fulfill all his promises and turns the ugly to good. Pray constantly, rejoice in the Lord, and give thanks to God, in everything!

My cry today: Lord, thank you for your loving kindness to me. Thank you that you are with me during my trials and are my help and refuge. Only you can satisfy my hunger and without you, I perish. More of you and less of me! All the glory is yours! Thank you for bringing good from what was meant for evil. I rejoice in you God, my salvation and strength! Amen

Make your life a prayer.  And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-19 TPT)

Worship By Exposing Your Heart

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…

Yahweh, I Love You!

by Hazel Straub

Struggling and wondering if you will make it? Although the season has difficulties, you are not alone! No matter how the enemy tries to discourage and defeat you, when you cry to Yahweh for help, he strengthens, sustains, and saves. He hears and answers our cries with tender love and help. Praise his name!

(Song of David written after Yahweh had delivered him from his many enemies , including Saul.)

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)

The Call Of God On Your Life

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You are only one door and one person away from where Yahweh desires to take you today. Your God-given desires and dreams are Yahweh’s desires and dreams also. Therefore, you’re not alone, Yahweh is working with you and not against.

Never underestimate the power of God in your life. What he has placed in you is inevitable, incredible and indestructible. You must See, Recognize, and Embrace the call of God on your life. He is married to his word inside of you and he doesn’t want a divorce. He is obligated to fulfill his word to you. However, it is imperative that you believe and concur with the best of the blessed that he has ordained for You and be an ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN YOUR MAGNANIMOUS DESTINY! Those that oppose are irrelevant. Yahweh has motioned it, Yeshua has seconded it, and the Holy Spirit confirms it. Yahweh says, “I have you, and we are in Favor of you, and the motion is carried out Today!”

Afraid? Fear Not!

by Hazel Straub

Does it appear that the world is spinning out of control, with the pandemic and its fallout? Good news for believers in Jesus, as their Redeemer and Lord! Your life is hidden, in Christ Jesus and you live in him, where you enjoy victory. Everything that comes against you, has to go through him first, before it comes to you. He sifts all that comes into your life, through his hands of love. His love makes you secure, despite the negativity swirling around you.

In difficult times, keep your eyes fixed on him and his love for you. He conquered the enemy of our soul and his victory is our victory. No matter the hardship, he goes with you, to the other side. You prevail through trying times!

So it comes down to this: since you have been raised with the Anointed One, the Liberating King, set your mind on heaven above. The Anointed is there, seated at God’s right hand. Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things, because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God. On that day when the Anointed One—who is our very life—is revealed, you will be revealed with Him in glory! (Colossians 3:1-4 The Voice)
