Divine Encounters


Lately, the cry of my heart is “Lord I want the more”.  That should always be all believers cry. I am learning that it simply increases in every season of life. Yes, I sought Gods face yesterday, last week, last month, but for this season its different. I have to seek Him more, in a different way, different places, but still the same never changing God. He utterly delights in us pursuing Him in fun, spontaneous joyful way. He loves when we lavish our “so-call” free time on Him.

For the first 3 1/2 months of this year, I would go to the beach as often as I could to spend time with God in prayer, worshiping, evangelizing, whatever He wants. That was three months ago, now I am not even surrounded by water. Severe things can happen in this kinds of situation. I can either hold on to the beach memories, and ask God that I want to go back there, or I can find something else around me that I enjoy and make new memories with God.

I chose the latter, I choose to go on an adventure to unfamiliar places because I serve an everlasting God, whose presence never cease to come everywhere I go. Who always goes before me, and makes every rough paths smooth (Isaiah 45:2). The beach was one the best places that I would go to spend time with God three months ago, but not in the season I am in now. Now it’s the park, and everywhere I go.

Last week,  as I was about to leave the park, Holy Spirit started talking to me about this guy that was a bit far from me.  So then off course since everything God does is perfect, this guy started walking toward me, so then I got up and walked and stopped him to share The Word with Him. He was encouraged, and I got to pray over Him, releasing the presence of God in His life, and  His family.

At the park, I’ve gotten to share The Word, pray to God, sing a new song onto my beloved. I can’t imagine spending time with him elsewhere. Tomorrow might be a different story, but today, I enjoy dancing like no one’s watching, and just be free. I love watching God change the weather so I can worship Him outside. One time I remember I was going running and it started to sprinkle, and I was like Lord, please hold it for like 20, 30 minutes, till I am done with my run, and he did. Another time, Holy Spirit told me to go to the park at 4pm, it was so hot outside, and am like Lord, let it breezy and not sunny. Mind you it was not breezy before I left and burning hot. I got to the park, I found our spot (Jesus and I) it was breezy, I didn’t even sweat. The sun wasn’t burning hot like it was earlier. All the work of God, I simply asked and He freely gave, because He’s an amazing Father who is for me and not against me.

Take home message Is to make your mind, and not let circumstances determine, how or where you will worship God. He’s so big, strong and mighty and so much fun. If you would only dare to purse him as you purse your earthly relationships, your whole world would turn upside down.  But no, we have to try and “fix” ourselves, listen to the lie of the enemy that we are not worthy. No His death made you worthy. You simply come as you are, and let him take you into your next level of glory. Don’t put Him in a box, he cannot fit in. I pray that you will never lose your wonder of Him, and passionately purse Him in new and exciting way.

Compelled By Love


Father, I thank you for the lives that will be transformed simply because you are God. Lord, I ask that you will just take over and that this will spark greater passion for individuals to pray not only on behalf of their loved ones, but for the people around them.  Lord, I thank You, that You will overwhelm souls with your love, that it will forever change the course of their lives. Lord, I thank You that your love will compelled them to stop for that one person.

When I was purchasing my ticket to come home for winter break, it took me a few weeks to buy it.  As I was  about to press submit then all of a sudden the Holy Spirit would literally just told me to stop. I wanted to leave right after my exams, and come back to school earlier, its what I always do. I remember that same time God was teaching me about pursing Him in different ways than what I am use to. So I am thinking, this is part of that. I eventually bought the ticket, I left school days after it was over, and I am leaving the day before school starts. I was really convinced something was suppose to happen on my trip home.  I was eagerly waiting on what God is up to.  My guess initially was that He will bring me people for me to share with on the plane, and He did. But then I wasn’t really satisfy, I just knew there was more to me coming home. My spirit would know when the task is done.

Last week, I was talking to God about seeing His Kingdom in action. It’s more than just words, but one of power. It shakes heaven and earth. I literally just wanted to go alone and park near a handicap spot to I pray for the sick, and see Heaven change lives, but God definitely has something else better plan, He told me that my siblings needed to come where ever I went.  In the back of my head, I a thinking how am I going to convince my siblings to come see Jesus in action and a parking lt. Jesus had this whole thing planned since the beginning of time, because a few minutes later my brother asked me to come with him and my two other siblings to grab Tapioca. I was so excited, because I know that I know that Jesus was about to change someone’s live. So I started sharing with my siblings about what God wants to do, and all they  could do was stare and scratch their giving me really weird looks.

Anyways we arrived at the shop, I saw my target, he looked like someone soak life out of Him. So I started praying in my heart, while trying to help my siblings order their drinks. They got their drink, and were ready to leave, and I am like, Jesus is not yet finish. I told them to sit and enjoy their drink, and that I was going to talk to the guy, we’ll call him Peter. I walk near peter, and I ask him if I could share something with him, and he said yes. I pulled up a chair facing him, I introduced myself, and I told him that Jesus loves him, then all of a sudden I just started vomiting out words about his identity, and things that only God could have shown me, because I literally just met Him. All  of a sudden his entire demeanor changed, he was about to start crying. He started confirming things I was saying about his life. For example  I told Peter to not let the things he’s done determine whether he will keep following Jesus. He mentioned that he’s done bad things, and I respond Jesus died for it all, you are as spotless and white as snow before His throne.  His love for you is not depended on anything you have done.  He told me that he has been praying that God will come and change his life, and that he has been going to church more often.  Now Holy Spirit is saying He sent me to answer his prayers.  So I got to pray over this man, breaking strongholds that were hindering him from becoming everything God called him to be.  I know Peter was forever changed, because heaven invaded his reality. He was the confirmation to the revival that’s coming to the city of Houston.  So many others like himself are crying out to God to change their lives, they have lived their lives apart from God for far too long, they want to come home to Daddy, and they want to be used by Him to transform this city.

My siblings witness this, and they asked if he believes, and I said yes that He was encouraged, and strengthen. The two younger ones said “Oh okay”. I was supper excited, because God showed up in an unbelievable way. Towards the end of the year the Holy Spirit started magnifying that when He walks into the room EVERYTHING changes. I started wresting with the idea that perhaps I am beginning to settle for less, when I’ve been commissioned for more. I didn’t  entertain the though, rather I channeled it in prayer pressing in for more of Him, it increased my desire to see lives radically changed by His love . I am like Lord, what does it mean to bring heaven to earth, and how can I sustain that throughout the day. He is ever present, He is constantly speaking, those are Scriptures, I am like make them a reality, not just words.

Today, my dear friend sent me a link to watch a video of Heidi and Rolland Baker’s “Compelled by Love”.  A few minutes in, I started sobbing. I can’t even put it in words why I began to cry. Things I was seeing just looked so much like what I read in the Bible. Jesus always stopped for that one person. Lets see, He stopped for the lady at the well (John 4:1-40). He stopped for the lady with the bleeding disorder (Mark 5:25). There are many stories in the Bible about how Jesus had compassion, and whenever He was compelled by love, that compassion is released into whatever situation, and  EVERYTHING changes. Destinies are marked, those individuals just can’t seem to stop talking about Him. Towards the end of the video, the individuals leading worship began to share the heart of God, stating that we should touch the individuals  on our left and right. Asking God to touch them afresh, I forgot their exact words. But non the less, I was eager to pray.

I called my little brother and sister, and I just began to pray asking God to touch them, and forever mark them for His kingdom. Mind you, I was sobbing and could barely compose myself. Then I asked my siblings, if they have ever ask Jesus to come live in their hearts . They both hesitantly said no.

The love of God was so thick, so I started sharing that Jesus paid the price for their sins, everything was flowing, I don’t even remember half of what I said. So I asked them if they wanted to accept Jesus into their heart, and they  both said yes.  I don’t think I have ever ask them that before.

My flesh was saying do they mean it, almost immediate, I hear Jesus said ”

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them” Mark 10:13-16).

Then the Holy Spirit, gently said  “its not your job to decide whether or nor they meant it, leave that to me”. And all I could do was weep and pray. And as I was praying for my sister tears were running down her eyes. Heaven invaded my family. I prayed for my brother too, to hear them both confess that they choose to believe that Jesus paid the ultimate price for them, and now they are choosing to laid down their lives because of what Love did, is glorious. I witness yesterday night two amazing miracles that will forever mark not only the lives of the rest of my family, but nations around the world. Then the Holy Spirit said “this is why I brought you back”.

Salvation is by far the greatest miracle of all. I just want to thank you for praying for my family this past few years. 4 down, 1 more to go! I had to double check that I wasn’t dreaming when all this happen. The best thing happen afterwards, I asked them if they wanted to worship with me, I told them that they were free to go do other things whenever they want. The right songs were played, I had no control over it, praise God! Whatever the Holy Spirit showed me, I just clicked. Hearing them declare that Jesus Reigns!, and that He’s the cornerstone of their lives, just gets me even more excited about Jesus. They both left after three songs, but I told them  I would keeping worshiping and that they could come by whenever they want. Not too long after, my sister came back to worship, telling me how much she likes the song “Cornerstone” By Hillsong.

What a trip!, what a night! What a God we serve! The God who loves giving us more than we can ever ask and or pray for. He is the God of infinitely more. He’s after lovers who are possessed by Him. People who have count the cost as nothing compare to the incomparable awesomeness of having more of Him. I pray that you will seek His counsel about your job, and ask Him to invade your surrounding. The Holy Spirit is dying to leap out of you, and mark people for the sake of eternity, will you stand for Love’s sake, and be abandon to Him at all possible cost?

Jesus is beyond worthy of the praise of every tongue in creation. The question is not whether or not it will happen, but rather, will you partner with Him? Will you raise your white flag of surrender to the mission that might seem impossible according to the worlds standard, but you don’t live by that. You have a mandate fro m Heaven!, that means every impossibility MUST bow to the Name of Jesus, no ifs, ands, or buts, it simply must happen. Because He is greater.

Tonight I saw the throne of God just eagerly celebrating the lives of my sibling’s. All I could do was smile, then the Holy Spirit whispered “‘It’s so easy” . The Word said the Kingdom is at hand. Literally its that close, and releasing it is so easy, but we make it difficult because of junk in our minds. Its really time to let go, and let God! Let your life count for the glory of His name.  People you are surrounded by are waiting to finally hear about the reason they are alive. They are waiting for you to answer their hearts most burning question “why they were created”?  Creation literally waits in eager expectation for the sons and daughter of the King to be revealed.

Beloved, will you say yes to the call of God on your life? Will you stop for the least of these? Above all, will you rewrite history with Jesus, and stop for that one person all for the sake of LOVE.

Till He Reigns,

Onaola

Marriage Covenant with Jesus.


God, my heart utterly breaks when I see believers pursuing relationships rather than You. I remember when you allowed me to walk through my own season wondering about relationship. I learned some incredible lessons, but above all else, I know what I want in a husband, to not allow the enemy to present a false replica. Now, I hear God saying, this is why we must pursue His presence, so we do not settle for anything less than His best.

Now, I am so much more sure of what I want in a Husband, that by God’s grace I do not want to date anyone.  The next question would be, how can you get to know them? How would you know that they are the one you should spend the rest of your life with? One answer: Intercession. If the God, whom I worship in Spirit and truth is truly the God above every god, then He will reveal to me if that particular someone is my spouse or not. This will save me from falling into unnecessary sins, that comes from dating. Who says you need to know every single detail about a person before you marry them? If Biblical marriage is a picture of my relationship with The Almighty, using this blueprint. When I became a believer, there was a lot I didn’t know about God, everyday I am learning something new. Same with marriage, you learn from each other everyday, you grow together in Christ.

When I see brothers, and sisters pursing relationships like it’s a means to an end, I just tear up on the inside. Because God will never give you a spouse, if first you are not married to Him. How can He trust you to take care of someone else, if you are being tossed and blown by the winds (ungodly doctrines) of this world (James 1:2-8) Again, God will not give you someone to make  into an idol.  If you are not worshiping God, whatever it is you worship then is idol worship. Whether, it is a relationship, job, school, food, family, whatever it may be, if it is not God, it is an idol. Ungodly altars, thus must be severed before we can even be married to God, much less marrying another individual. There is an order to everything in The Kingdom. God is not a god of caucus or confusion, He is The God of order. First thing must be first, and that is getting in a relationship with Him, and being perfectly content with that relationship above all else, even if it means you never getting married. Marriage is not the end goal of ones life, it  is a gift from God. It’s a covenant relationship, not a contract as the world looks at it.

If every believer only knew how jealous God is for their affections.  They would really wait on the Lord, and have Him bring, him/her a spouse at His timing and even friendships, relationships in general. Lord, set souls ablaze. Every heart that will read this, Father help them hunger for the Fame of Jesus in Creation. That the desires of your heart will be His fame (Isaiah 26:8), this is why I care so much about this issue.  When I see people in ungodly relationships, I know it’s a symptom of a deeper heart issue. A void that only God can fill, no relationship will be able to fill that void.  Lord, I pray that You will be their

one desire, above all else. Become the lover of their hearts and soul. Set every heart ablaze for the Name of Jesus. Lord, I just pray for every men and women that calls upon your name, Father, I pray that they will set godly standards in relationships, that the covenant they have with you will be the example. God did not save you to fall short of His glory/calling. He saved you so you can dwell in His presence for eternity. He won this battle already, look upon the face of your Beloved, there is freedom in His presence. Run to Him, and Him alone.

Father, I thank You for the hearts you are transforming, thank you for their lives, for their devotion to you, thank you Father, that surely you will consume them. Father, I lift up the ones that don’t know You, thank You that you are awakening their hearts to The Kingdom. Begin to praise the Father, because It is only by His wounds you are healed. Beauty became ashes for you, don’t go back to the ashes Jesus destroyed. Don’t look through the garbage can again.  Jesus has set you free, now walk in freedom in the Name of Jesus. There is power in the Name of Jesus to break every chain, Amen

The God of Endless Possibilities


To The God who invades the impossible. To Him, I offer my life at the altar of sacrifice. Father, I just ask for an invasion of more of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I want all The God head to keep invading every area of my life, I want to overflow in the maximum of everything I can have in God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. Precious Father, I praise you that would you let me overflow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Lord, You know it, You know it, I do not know everything, but one I am confident of this, that You Father, are the God who loves invading the impossible.

It’s already February, this past January was probably the best January I have ever had in my entire life. I know I have said the same thing about previous months, but God just keeps making everything better than the day before. It utterly confirms the Scripture that says we move from glory to glory in Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18).

This week, I learned from the Spirit of God through Bill Johnson, that the Israelite s  forgot what God did for them, which is why they kept falling in to idolatry. God dried up the red sea Imageas dry land for the Israelite s’ to walk through (Hebrews 1129). Waters came up  of  rocky places, because He wanted to show them how beloved they are to Him (Exodus 17:6). The same people would turn after having personal experiences with God Himself, and start worshiping things He created. Bill’s point is that the people of Israel  forgot what God delivered them from, and they were so focused on what He has not done yet. This took the focus off of God, and the spotlight on their circumstances. Therefore it was the same story over and over again, God would rescued them, and they would fall right back into idolatry again.

Then the Holy Spirit began talking to me, on why He has me praying “Lord, let me never forget who you are, or what You have done for me” a lot. As I pray, It would literally just come out somehow. Then He said, it’s a warning against Idol worship. Because the people of Israel stopped praising God in difficult circumstances, they lost touch on what was really important, God. And that He did not want me to forget who He is, and everything He has done for me, so when I am waging war for a breakthrough to happen, or simply anything, I don’t give up because He is talking too long. I can still hope, knowing that my God is the God who invades the impossible.

This is also another reason why God wanted me to me to make every effort to write more to Him this year, so when those times come where I am just waiting on God in whatever the situation might be, I can go back and read about all He has done already, and praise Him, rather than stay in discontent and get discourage about what He has not done yet. I pray that He never allow me to  lose sight of what He has done. Something else He has been burning in my heart is not reducing God to the gifts He has given me.  If I simply reduce  Him, How can I even begin to trust Him to shatter the impossible, if I have put a limit through my thoughts about what He can or cannot do?

Last Sunday, I prayed for a couple that was on vacation from Canada, the wife’s ears was hurting, she said perhaps from the altitude of flying up and down. She was healed in the Name of Jesus. The Husband who was not a believer, will be in the Kingdom someday.  I prayed for this lady with a son the same day, calling them (her family)  fourth into the Kingdom. Also last Sunday, I prayed for 4 little girls, I am trusting God that they will be ministers in the Kingdom one day, actually no, I know they will be. The last time I was by the water, two or so days ago, I prayed for a lady and her mothers brother, who was coming back to Jesus. It was an honor, just to bless that family.

At school, Wednesday afternoon, God showed up at Bible study. I wanted Him to touch everyone, but I told Him, I just want Him to set one heart on fire, and off course everyone was touched and every heart was set ablaze .  I prayed for a friend who rolled her ankle, it was wrapped up so I asked her if I could pray over it. I was going to touch it, she said I couldn’t, that it is against her culture. Almost immediately, I could hear Jesus whispering, “I will  heal her regardless”. So I prayed, and afterwards, I asked her how she felt. She mentioned that she felt, a tingle as I was praying, I knew God  heal her, but it was nice to hear her confirm it. I told her to let me know when it is completely healed so I can celebrate with her. I saw her in class with her shoes on, I walked to her, and said “God healed your leg”, and she said “yes”. All I could do was shower Him with praises more and more.

Another lady, I have been praying over this past few days, tells me Jesus comes and rests upon her as I pray over her. That she always feels  Him resting upon her. Her name is Harini, there is a calling on her life, she is so hospitable, and literally serves people anyway she can. Please pray for her salvation, it will happen at God’s timing. I prayed over another student name Mike, I got to pray over His immigration documents, that I would slip through the hand of the immigration officers like oil. I know God  has answered my prayer. I remember after I prayed for him, he told me that no one has ever done anything like that before for him in his 30 years of living, his face was utterly priceless.

God told me that He will cause everyone I attend school with to be prayed over somehow. How? I have no clue, but I know it will happen, because of what I have already experience this past week, and above all because He promised. I don’t need to know how all of it will happen, but I will say this, been aware of His presence everywhere, is really transforming my entire life for the better.  Seeing people’s face light up in the presence of God is one the of the many things that brings me joy, it is so filing. I do not get tired of it, and I pray that I never do.

My brother shared with me that yet again, another lady was sharing the Gospel with Him at the financial aid office at his school. Seeing what a grip God has over his life literally makes me shutter. Another praise, is that his tuition was provided for by the Lord, so please thank God for that. Seeing his face light up through Skype as He talked about Jesus brings utter joy. I delight in things as such.

 

Be Lifted High


Lord, you are so good to me. I am lost for words to describe, you. You never fail to remind me that Your presence is all I need. Your presence, is rocking my world these days. It’s the air I breath, it is everything to me. I cannot get through anything apart from you. John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”. When verses start to become an integrated part of your day to day life, it changes everything. It is not enough to read it, and feel good. I need them to be true in my life.  Scripture says ” For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). I want everything He says to come alive, that is when my world gets transformed, and I become everything He has call me to be. Whenever I see how much He really is changing my heart, I simply stand in awe, because it was not my own doing, I am certain of this.

Lord, thank You for always searching the depths of my heart, and revealing things I need to work on. When God brings correction, it is never in a condemning way, because The Holy Spirit lives inside of You, and He cannot condemn Himself. And Romans 8:1 “Therefore now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death…in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful but according to the Spirit”.

Notice that The Word says, no condemnation for those who live according to The Spirit. Whenever I got this revelation from the Holy Spirit, light bulbs went off in my head. So then there is condemnation for those who live in the flesh. Not condemnation from the Lord, but rather themselves, because they either think God cannot fix their situation, or whatever reasons people make to keep living in sin.

There is liberty in Christ for all who live in the Spirit. His love changes us, we are never the same once we encounter this all consuming treasure (Jesus),who is of more worth, than all the fleeting treasures of this world. My prayer, is that this will not be the next blog you’ll be reading. If you are reading it, and the Holy Spirit is not activating you to deeper and greater intimacy with the Lord, it is not worth it. I pray that you will yearn after the Presence of God.  In-fact, no, I declare that you will indeed yearn after Him, that the rest of your life will never be the same. I pray that you will learn to walk in His presence like Jesus did. If Jesus walked in the FULL presence of God, what and who is stopping you? Are you forgetting that Jesus Himself, said “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12). Jesus healed the sick, cast out demons, turn water into wine, raise the dead to life, and so much more. This same Jesus said that you can do all the things he has been doing and greater things, I mean what a promise! It is a conditional promise, He said you have to have faith in me. Ask Jesus to take your faith to the next level. I am declare the fullness of every thing you can have In Christ, all the promises. This is not too much, in fact it is too little, when I know He wants to do more.  I mean Scriptures says He can do exceedingly more than we ask Him for (Ephesians 3:20).

Lord, I pray that you will awaken, not only every soul that reads this, but everyone in their surroundings to the Kingdom.  That this will cause a dominion effect in every soul, every family, every city, every state, every nation.  Thank you Lord, for opening the floodgates of heaven in every soul, for an abundance of everything they need in Christ Jesus. Lord, I thank you that we lack nothing in The Kingdom. Lord, I praise you that you are opening eyes to see the Kingdom in a way they have never seen it before. Lord, I pray for every broken heart to be healed in The Name of Jesus. I hear the Lord, saying “awakening”. He is awakening your Spirit because of what your Spirit read today. “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). I pray that your soul, and flesh will succumb to the authority of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus paid the highest prize, He has proven His great love for us. praise Him with your live, and proclaim your love for Him.  No turning back, give Him ALL your life. His love makes it worth it. Lift up your hands and worship Him. Live your life to give Him glory. He is exalted above every principalities in creation, and His will be done, forever and ever, Amen.

I Will Not Forget The Cross


You traded blood for me Daddy. All for love, my Jesus gave it all. Now I am standing in the wonder of your love. All for love, you paid it all, Lord I marvel at  your beauty. You are simply too good to me. Thank you for tearing the veil inside my heart, I am, and will forever be grateful of your great love.

So many divine appointments, I cannot even begin to explain the explosion of the Holy Spirit all around me. He is just invading territories, praise The Lord. I have so much more freedom, than I did yesterday. What!?!?! Everyday, I am a different person. No more new years resolution, no, we have move past that, it’s now a day to day, hour to minute, to second. I need Him now, I need breakthroughs now, not in 6 months, I want the best in Christ right now, not later down the road. I want the manifestation of all He has promise me right now. And He wants the best from me right now, not in 2 hours. He wants me to give Him my absolute best right now.   “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

When I was going to worship by the ocean tonight, I met this two guys. I was singing, and then I could just feel eyes watching me. Needless, to say they were trying to get my attention. One of the guy asked if He could take a picture of me. It did not sit well in my head for a while. Then he explained that when I stretched out my hand, it just looked like I am facing the sun, like it is in my face.  So I gave him permission, and I saw the picture, and it look really cool, it was just my back and the sunset in front of me.

So off course I asked them if they knew about Jesus, they don’t get to take a picture without hearing about Jesus. Kingsley, said he has been going to church since a little boy, but that he doesn’t attend anymore. Javan, I don’t remember if this is his name, said he hasn’t been going too. They both mentioned that they get nothing out of attending church. Javan specifically said, I don’t need to be at church to worship God. So I asked them how they having growing in their relationship with God since they’ve stopped attending church . They both said, that they haven’t been growing. So the Holy Spirit encourage them through me with Hebrews “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25).

Then they gave me permission to pray over them, and  I just declared the promises of God upon their lives. It was glorious. My heart leaps at thing like this. When His words go out, I am the most joyful person ever.  I just love praying for people to experience more from God.

I would have missed them completely if I had not obey the Holy Spirit. I just eat dinner, and I finished a sermon, and my Spirit wanted to sing to my Daddy. I normally don’t go out on Sundays by the beach. I will be honest, I was not expecting to talk to anymore, but it was amazing. God has been just sending people to me.  I was expecting the Lord to show up, don’t get me wrong. But now, I feel He really wants me to just let all the preconceive notions fall off. He will manifest His presence as He pleases, and anyway He wants. In the season I am in, what He did last year, is not enough. He wants to come from every angle, every square inch of my world He has, and will keep invading. Praise the Lord, for this was my prayer for most of last year.  As He does this, something happens in the physical around me, He brings people to me, and I have the great privilege of imparting blessings, gifting, and whatever He asks of me, to them. As He invades my life, He invades other peoples lives through me.  I get to talk about Him freely to other people, what a privilege. I get to boast about the Lord, and His faithful all around me, what more could I ask for. He makes all things work together for my good.

I have the backing of all of heaven. His presence that I carry is changing my surrounding as it should. Last week, I kid you not, He had me go on my prayer walk, declaring every soul I see, or that looks at me into the Kingdom. My heart was simply at awe that afternoon. The Presence should be so over powering, that sick people that simply walk past me would jus be healed. Anything and everything is possible with God. He has even given me assurance that everyone around me, everywhere I go will be brought into the Kingdom. And if they are already Followers of Jesus, for more of the presence of God in every area of their lives.

“As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by” (Acts 5:15). If God can do it, in the days of Peter, how much more does He want to do right now, in this generation, so much more!

My God is The God of infinity more, a God of abundance, so I get to declare the maximum of everything I can have, not just for today, or the year, but for eternity. I want the most of heaven right now. Matthew 6:10 says ” Your Kingdome come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.  One of the assignments He has given me is to align myself with Him in bringing heaven to earth.  That verse in Matthew is a declaration, it will happen, it is already God’s will. I am suppose to have the maximum presence of heaven here on earth as I can have, but it will not be fully complete till He comes back again. Lord, so I declare the order of heaven on earth. Lord, I declare The worship in heaven, on earth in the Name of Jesus. I declare in the Name of Jesus, the fullness of the manifestation of how things are done in heaven on earth.  I declare in the Name of Jesus that every soul that reads this be brought closer to the Lord. For the sake of the world, burn like a fire in them. Burn like a fire in this generation. Set us ablaze for the glory of your name.

In The Name Of Jesus


 

I pray in the name of The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that His will be done is this. Lord You are more than welcome to take over at any moment, apart from you I am nothing, and so is this (John 15:5).

My Spirit is overfilled with thankfulness, of pure unending joy for you. Thank you so much for waging war in prayer this summer on the Kingdom behalf. Thank you for going to Him who is able to do way more than we can imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Thank You for approaching His throne with confidence, so others may receive mercy and find grace (Hebrews 5:16).

Your prayers demolished, and are demolishing strongholds that will forever change eternity. Wednesday afternoon while standing in line  to get Tapioca with my siblings, I received an email from family in East Asia, Sharing with me that one of the people I was privileged enough to share the love of Christ with now believes in the Lord. Off course I went nuts, and even much more once I stepped out of the store. I was trying to compose myself inside the store, why? I was trying to not cause a huge sense. Lame excuse says the Holy Spirit. I should have went crazy that the cashier should have asked what was wrong, and it would have been a huge entry in sharing the Good News with her. But its okay, God will get her at His timing. I had no idea that I would share this much detail about the story, and this isn’t even the best part . When the Holy Spirit shows up when I am writing, I literally just type. I don’t plan this out, I let Him  take control, because it is only what He say that really matters.

After I left the store, I was driving home in awe of the greatness and utter faithfulness of God. In his mercy, He literally started bringing back all the memories of when I first met Lance.  So Lance came to an event queered to help students practice English, and for the majority of the time he wasn’t there, because Satan tried to prevent Him from coming there. The event occurred at a two story coffee shop, and the waiters in the coffee house simply told it was happening here, they never actually told him the exact location. And it was on the 2nd floor of the coffee shop. I remember seeing lance reading a newspaper, checking his watch and drinking coffee. He looked like He was waiting on someone, but I didn’t ask. When God finally led Him to come upstairs, I don’t remember exactly how. He sat at my table, and literally after His first few words, the Holy Spirit told me He wasn’t hear to practice His English. He spoke really really good English.  God has been gracious in given me a Spirit of discernment, so when He told me, he was hear for the Gospel, we skipped the long introductions and dive into what really matters, Jesus. Still to this day, I don’t remember exactly how that conversation started, It just always end up been about Jesus in the end, this happens to me a lot. I remember him asking me questions about the Bible, and later found out he use to live in New York City, this explained why his English is great. We talked about his time in America, family, and at the end I gave Him a Bible. The fact that the Bible was even there at that time, at that location was ordained by the Lord, and I will forever praise Him for this. The sister that left the Bible there did not want to have to carry it back and forth that week, she takes it back and forth all the time, but that week, God wanted those Bibles to be at the coffee shop.

I have been praying for Him, because His face screamed hungry for a savior. He was searching for answers, and wanting to know truth. We exchanged contact information, and I texted Him if I He wanted to have dinner/lunch with Jonah ( a local believer) and myself.  At this point, my friends and I had been asking God to bring up guys to share with it. In that culture, the locals tell me that girls desire to know more about the Lord than males. God is bigger than cultural norms the Holy Spirit reminded me, so I knew it was a lie from the devil, no need to let it sit.  So lance invited Jonna and I out to dinner my last week.

Trusting the Lord will lead us, at dinner again Lance didn’t waste much time bring up the Lord, He told us about His exposure to religion (Mormonism). I got to share how the Lord deliver me from darkness to light. That we are not saved by our good works, because it is not good enough in compare to Perfection (Jesus) Who shed His blood of The Cross for ALL of our sins. That we cannot buy his love, that it is free, forever and always. He bought us with His blood. He asked me tons of questions, and the Lord helped me through them all. By the end of the dinner, all I could do was praise God for placing lance into my pact, because I was certain that I obey my Father, and delivered His message with the utmost authority that He has graciously granted me, at that point, I knew there was nothing left to be done but keep praying for Him. I can’t help Him or anyone else understand the Gospel. I can only present the gospel, and trust that the Maker or heaven and earth will show mercy on Him, and graciously save Him.

I got back from EA, Lance is still on my heart. I was praying that God will provide a way to just let me write Him, I was at camp at this time. Two weeks into camp, I got an email from Him. And my face just lit up, I knew after that God will provide an opportunity to response back. In the email he mentioned that He was learning more about Jesus through my Host Family, and heart just melted.  In my response God allowed me to  share His story and pray for Him and Family in the email. And now, all this is history, all that matters now is who Lance is in the Lord.

The fact that God allowed me to hear about his is a honor, He did not have to let me hear about it , but He did, and I utterly praise Him for it. His love is always the difference.

God has changed my life this summer, it was expected. He’s a big God. He allows me to come with expectations, and always goes above and beyond.  He’s really teaching that if, I am constantly asking Him for more of Himself, He needs more of me. It’s the relationship that drives everything. It’s out of the overflow of my love for Him that my spirit desires to Read the Bible, pray, and share The Word with other.

One of the other things I learned is living for every second as He’s granted it. I am starting to learn this is where the urgency in me comes out. I use to have a tendency to be constantly looking ahead, this is not a bad thing, but when the future consumes your life, its dangerous, why? Because none of us are guaranteed  another day, much less the next hour. I am guaranteed this moment, this second not even the next minute, much more hours, days, weeks, months, years.  If I am constantly thinking about what we happen three weeks from now, I am missing everything He is doing this very second. Therefore I am not going to wait to share the Gospel with that person after knowing them for X amount of time. By His grace I am going to take every moment He gives me as an opportunity to share as He desires, because it would be our last encounter.

In light of all this, I pray that in view of His mercy in which He has freely lavished on You, that you will DEVOTE the rest of the life He will give you in pursuing a love relationship with Him. A love relationship with Jesus is why He made you to begin with, nothing less. If this solid foundation is not there, you are missing out on the FULLNESS of joy in which He desires for you. It is out of this love relationship will the rest of your life make sense. Friend, how are you with Jesus? I don’t care what you are doing for Him, I care more about your relationship with Him. Our relationship with Him should be getting better every second of everyday, “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18). We should look more like him every second of everyday. “He must become greater, (you) must less (John 3:30). It’s literally no longer self, but Christ that does everything. I pray that this will be the cry of your heart. That He will become greater and that you will become less. Notice how John 3:30 is command not simply a wish.

In the name of Jesus, I pray that you will die to self, and surrender to Christ who lives in you (Galatian 2:20). I trust with all of my heart, that Him “who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus”(Philippians 1:6).  I pray that you will obey every word, even if it literally to get up and move to another country for His name sakes, because His ways are better. He is God over all your days, I pray that you will fix your eyes on Him, and only Him. In light of what He did, I pray that you will lay the life He gave you as a living sacrifice that is HOLY, and PLEASING (Romans 12:1). There is no such thing as walking casually with Him, no Scripture in the Bible can support that. So no one can be half holy or half pleasing, you either are or you are not. I pray that He will give you eyes to see, and ears to hear His words. I pray that we will worship our Father with our entire being, this simply cannot be over prayed. Its that important. “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire'”(Hebrews 12:28-29).

I wrote this for my prayer warriors sometimes last week,I want you to celebrate, and above all PRAISE the Lord, for HE is GOOD, and his faithfulness surely endures to all generations (Psalm 100:5)
