Focusing On The Word Of God

by Hazel Straub

The key to doing the impossible is hearing and acting on the Word of God. The disciples of Jesus were caught in a turbulent storm, on the Sea of Galilee. Jesus appeared walking on the water and his disciples thought he was a ghost. Jesus told Peter, “Come!” Peter got out of the boat, acting on the Word, and kept his focus on Jesus, walking on the water.

Peter came close to Jesus but shifted his focus from Jesus, to the strong wind and high waves. Unbelief came, when Peter looked at his circumstances, instead of focusing on Jesus and he began to sink. He cried for help and Jesus immediately reached out his hand and grabbed Peter. Jesus rebuked Peter for his little faith and for doubting him. When Jesus and Peter got in the boat, the storm stopped. (Matthew 14:22-33)

When we focus on Jesus, act on the Word of God, we will not have fear, doubt and unbelief. But we will walk in faith. If we lose our focus, refocus on Jesus, be in the Word of God and draw close to him. He loves us and calls us to believe his Word.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. (Hebrews 12:2-3 KJV)

Wedding Dance For The Lamb And His Bride

by Hazel Straub

“Will you dance with me?” inquired the bridegroom of his bride. She eagerly accompanied him to the dance floor. She had no difficulty following his lead into a waltz, even though she could not see where they were going. Her focus was solely on the groom. Suddenly, the music shifted to a swing dance. Flawlessly, the bride began to swing dance with the groom. It appeared effortless for the bride to change her movements, to the new rhythm and beat, because her gaze was on her groom. The music shifted without warning to a salsa dance and the bride followed her groom into the new dance, as she yielded to him. They danced as one together and did not notice the crowd, who intently watched them and came near them on the floor. The bride and groom had eyes only for each other and their unity exhilarated them, as they danced.

The only circumstance that matters, to the bride, is being with her beloved, attuned to his leading, as she flows with him. Will you trust the Lord Jesus, the Lamb of God, and let him lead you in this dance of life?

Let us be glad and rejoice,
and let us give honor to him.
For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb,
and his bride has prepared herself. (Revelation 19:7 NLT)

God Calls Us Into Close Relationship

by Hazel Straub

God will never leave or forsake you. He sticks closer than a brother. As your father, his desire is close relationship. So often we recite our laundry list of wants, needs and desires, to God. without waiting for his response.

We like to have conversations with friends and family but God is so much more than a friend. He is calling to us to stop and spend time, listening to his heart. Pause and listen to the voice of Daddy God today. He calls you, into a deeper relationship.

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27 NIV)

Frame Your World With Words

by Hazel Straub

We frame our world with our words. What we speak over ourselves comes to pass. If we speak negativity, we will receive it. But if we agree with God, we speak life over ourselves, our relationships, our finances, our families, our jobs, our cities, our states and our nation. Our speech changes our lives for either the positive or negative.

Decree today: I decree and declare that I turn from living for myself and give my life and heart to the Lord Jesus.  I decree and declare I am obedient to you, Daddy God. and my sins washed by Jesus’ blood. I repent of and reverse every word that I or others have spoken over myself and my loved ones’ lives that are not in alignment and agreement, with your Word. I declare that the enemy will not write my history. I decree I speak Spirit and life.

The Spirit is The Life Giver; the body does not benefit anything. The words that I speak with you are spirit and life.  (John 6:63 ABIPE)

The Bread Of Life

by Hazel Straub

Hungry and thirsty? We have a spiritual hunger and thirst that is satisfied with a personal relationship with Jesus the Christ. He gave his life to feed the world. Come to him to get your hunger and thirst filled, as you trust and depend on him.

Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time). (John 6:35 AMPC)

The Lord Cares For You!

by Hazel Straub

Discouraged because life has not happened as you anticipated? The darkest part of the night occurs just before dawn.

Your time of wandering in the wilderness, teaches you to trust in God alone. His presence and favor go with you. Is the journey easy? No! Tests and trials are not fun but they build spiritual muscles. He is preparing you for the destiny, for which he created you. You are acquiring character, patience, hope, faith and love that will anchor you, when suddenly God’s promises manifest in your life.

And you saw how the LORD your God cared for you all along the way as you traveled through the wilderness, just as a father cares for his child. Now he has brought you to this place.(Deuteronomy 1:31 NLT)

Honor God With Your Actions

by Hazel Straub

God calls for us honor him, as he is holy (set apart). He wants us to show him reverence, not taking him for granted. At times we become too friendly, lacking reverential respect for him. He calls us to do things his way, not what feels good to us.

It is time for a new level of consecration and dedication towards God. Honor and respect him with your life, obey him with reverence and joy. He loves and values you. Value God with your actions.

Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord meant when He said, I and My will, not their own will be acknowledged as hallowed by those who come near Me, and before all the people I will be honored. And Aaron said nothing. (Leviticus 10:3 AMPC)

God’s Prescription For Fear

by Hazel Straub

God’s prescription for ridding people of fear is His love. He unconditionally loves all of us and sent his only Son, Jesus the Christ, to die for our sins. His love fills our hearts and there is no room fear, when we are in relationship with Him. We are God’s beloved children. His love casts out all fear.

There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear ]brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection]. (1 John 4:18 AMPC)

Our Thoughts Determine Our Life

by Hazel Straub

Our thought life is important. What we think and meditate upon comes out of our mouth and manifests in our actions. There is a war in our mind, over what we believe. The devil wants us to see the problem, instead of God, our Problem Solver.

If we fix our eyes on Jesus the Anointed One, we will marvel at what God has done and is doing. God wants us to meditate on his Word. He desires that we know that greater is the Spirit of Jesus inside of us, than the enemy in the world.

Worry and anxiety are the first stage of doubt that leads to fear and unbelief. Worry cancels faith. Renew your mind, by thinking and speaking the Word of God. God makes a way, when it seems impossible. With God, you can resist the enemy and he will flee. Miracles of provision come, when you change your vision, to the Lord Jesus.

 So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always. (Philippians 4:8 TPT)

Jehovah Watches Over You!

by Hazel Straub

When Jehovah is your God, he watches over you and keeps you safe. Rejoice and know that he is your protection forevermore!

Jehovah himself will watch over you;
he’s always at your side to shelter you safely in his presence.
He’s protecting you from all danger both day and night.
He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity
as he continually watches over you.
You will be guarded by God himself.
You will be safe when you leave your home
and safely you will return.
He will protect you now,
and he’ll protect you forevermore! (Psalm 121:5-8 TPT)
