There is POWER in the Name of Jesus

image

I give glory and honor to the Father above for the seen and unseen. Had He not sacrificed His only begotten Son, where would I be?

There IS power in the name of Jesus.

Whatever we go through in life, the Word of God is the instruction manual for life so if we are looking for Healing in love, hope, truth, anger,forgiveness, guidance and so forth, we will indeed find it in the Holy Bible.

I want to take this opportunity to share with you my update from my last post Separation Anxiety regarding at least one test dealing with cancer. My mammogram came back normal. NO CANCER! I received a letter in the mail yesterday to my surprise. Hallelujah, Thank you Jesus!!!!!

To be quite honest as I stated before in the last post, I knew that I knew that I KNEW that I was already healed. I don’t know if cancer was floating in my body or not but God gave me this peace that surpassed all understanding.

No one could tell me any different.

It reminded me of something my doctor told me when I was 15 years old. I was told that I would likely never have children because my reproductive system was messed up.

All I can say is that God showed up and showed out! He blessed my husband and I with not only 1 child but many more: Divine Hope, Timothy Andrew, Justus Emmanuel, Faith Alexandria and Hannah Sarai.

Now who says that God doesn’t have the final say? At the age of 15 and to hear disheartening news, something in my spirit would not receive it. I knew that I knew that I knew that I would be a wife and mother one day.

Why on earth I allowed a family history of cancer to rock my boat and almost turn me over is crazy when I know how He’s showed up before in my life for many other reasons and blessed me. I’m so thankful to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for meeting me right where I was in my brokenness.

The Word is healing to the mind, body and soul.

Today I come to you with all sincerity asking if you need healing. Well do you? I believe we all stand in need of it for something in our lives especially when we need and receive salvation.  For whatever you may be dealing with in your life, I am standing with you in prayer for Healing in the mighty name of Jesus.

“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20

Call on the Name of Jesus because there is power, so so much power in it to do exceedingly more than you could ever imagine.

Love your sister in Christ,
Terra

He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3 NKJV

Heal me, O Lord , and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14 NKJV

Did You Get the Memo? God Gave It for a Reason

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. (James 1:19, 20 NIV)

The Word tells us also:

The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

•From the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach is satisfied; he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.

•Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. (Proverbs 18:4, 20, 21 ESV)

So after chewing and digesting, how did it taste? Is it worthy to be spoken toward someone? Is it edifying or will it tear down? There are no “paybacks” if you are trying to tear someone down. Vengeance belongs to The Lord!

Think about it.

 

 

Psalm 121: Do Not Fret! God Has Your Back!!

20131028-105159.jpg
This is a power and uplifting song that stems from Psalm 121 that I have attached myself to since I gave my life to the Lord years ago. Jesus IS our Help!
Be encouraged today for God has each and every one of us still here for a reason and purpose!

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” (Lamentations 3:22-24 NKJV)

Why should I worry, why should I fret
Look at all the ways he’s made
And every promise kept.
I look to the hills from which cometh my help
I’ll tell you where my help cometh
Tell you where my help cometh
Tell you where my help cometh
It cometh from the lord…
Jesus is my help
Jesus is my help
My help, hy help

There’s No Place Like Home

Have you ever awakened with a heavy heart? Did you stay in that mood all day long? I can’t lie and say that I haven’t because I have done so for one reason or another.

Typically you will find me in a dress everyday. That’s just my style. Well, I opted to put on sweat clothes and call it a day. That was 5:30 this morning. As tired as I was, I knew that dressing to fit my current mood would likely keep me down so I changed clothes.

Click. “There’s no place like home.”

Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong with sweats. I just knew that I could not allow my unforeseen emotions to take me out of character. While my outer clothes do not define me, they do help in a sense because it’s cold and I wanted to be warm and cozy. Yet I changed because I have a long day ahead of me. Being too warm makes me lazy!

I digress.

Click. “There’s no place like home.”

The most important thing I could have adorned myself with this morning was a garment of praise. With that said I placed it on…….

Click. “There’s no place like home.”

The devil is a liar. He was not about to steal my joy. I choose this day to praise God no matter how I woke up feeling. I began to lift up my voice, stir up my spirit thinking on the goodness of the Lord.

While I have enjoyed watching the classic movie The Wizard of Oz over the years, I do not need to “click my heels” together to go back home. God lives within me and in Him I can have peace and restored joy. If anything, I go to my knees in prayer.

I opened up my Bible and began to read Psalm 84. How my heart rejoiced as a smile came across my face with such delight! The passages of scripture lifted me even more.

Let us read together….

The Blessedness of Dwelling in the House of God

How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young— Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, My King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You. Selah Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah O God, behold our shield, And look upon the face of Your anointed. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You! (Psalms 84:1-12 NKJV)

There truly no place like Home when God is present with you. Today I encourage you to take heart and dwell in the blessed presence of the Lord our God. In Him we are welcomed in,comforted, fill with a feast of thanksgiving from the Holy Word and graced in abundance with the pouring of the Spirit.

Fill us Lord until our cup runneth over. Let Your love and presence cover us as a sweet-smelling fragrance as we sing praises to You! Blessed be Your name in all the earth.

Satisfy us in the morning with Your faithful love so that we may shout with joy and be glad all our days. (Psalms 90:14 HCSB)

Final Destination: My Letter to You About Meeting Love Along the Way

Enter the Narrow Gate

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go by in it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7: 13-14 NKJV)

For the last few days my mind and my heart has been thinking about you.

“Who? Me?!!”, you may be asking yourself. My answer is “Yes, it’s you that I’m talking to.”

As I sat and thought about life, the people in it and where we are all headed for our final destination, I could not feel anything but love and compassion for those without Love. This Love goes by the name of Jesus the Messiah, Lord and Savior, Prince of Peace, Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Lamb of God and the Truth. He has many other names but I am just naming a few.

Oh how I wish that I could tell you this in person so that you could hear and see my face when I talk about Jesus! I want to hug you, hold your hand and tell you about the Love who changed my life a long time ago because I know He can do it for you. This is how much I care about where you will be when your time expires on this earth; this temporary dwelling place until we reach our eternal home.

Heaven or hell. One of the two is where we will be sent depending on what we choose to do in this life. It will be too late afterward. I’m just being honest.

This Love came to earth in the form of man to teach us many things and to ultimately take our sins upon His shoulders and die for us so that we could be reconciled back to God. I say that because sin separates us from the Father. We cannot go before God or even make it to heaven without Jesus. His love and sacrifice is unlike any other.

What person is willing to take on the sins of humanity and die a humiliating, horrific and painful death just to save a people who did not love or care about Him and what He came to do? Many of us may lay our lives on the line to protect our loved ones but that kind of love will not get us into eternity gracing the presence of God the Holy One.

Good deeds will not get us into heaven.

Believing, repenting, and receiving salvation in to your life will get you on the right path. Faith can do exceedingly great things beyond your understanding. Believe in Jesus the Christ who died yet was resurrected from the dead 3 days later. Death could not hold Him! Repent of your sins. Let me stop right here for a second.

Do you know that no matter what sins you have committed, Jesus already paid the price? Well He did! So whether it’s lying, murder, adultery, stealing, rape or serving false gods He already paid for your sins on the cross. All you have to do is confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that your sins have been washed away. Remembered no more.

Receive salvation and know that the angels are rejoicing in the heavens! Every time a life changes for the better, the devil has no reign over you. You have been set free from sin bondage by Satan.

Jesus came to give life and to set you free that you would have it in abundance. Being a child of God is truly rewarding. We are received unto Him. He will not look upon us and see our past sins but see us with love.

Had it not been for the shedding of pure and sinless blood, Jesus’ blood, we would all be hell bound.

We may not know each other, speak the same native tongue, live in the same country or even believe in the same things but I love you. God loves you more.

I don’t want you to live this life in vain. I care about where you will end up one day. I want to rejoice knowing that I will be with a host of fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord up in heaven than to not see you knowing that your eternity will be spent in pain and agony with the evil one.

Remember that the devil means you no good. His goal is to steal, kill and destroy. The things of this world is temporary. People, money, sex, desires and treasures of this life will soon fade. Lies and deception is Satan’s craft.

Tomorrow may be too late. You don’t know the day, hour or exact time that you will exist no more.

Will you receive Jesus into your life today? Will there be one? Even if you’ve accepted Christ a long time ago and are in a backslidden state, it’s not too late to come back. Come on back home. Come back to the true Love that can change your life forever. I wrote a post last year about the Blood. Read for yourself what The Blood Transfusion (link) can do for you and I.

Be blessed, be encouraged and know that I am praying for you no matter where you are in this big world. God understands every tongue and knows what’s in your heart. He is our Creator.

Just call on Him.

Dear reader,
I’m trusting the Lord to work everything out. I am only one person but I believe in God and his power. My faith trusts that a seed has been planted in your life. I will leave it up to Him to water it however He sees fit that a work may be done in you that will bring an everlasting change.

To God be the glory now and forevermore…. Amen. ❤️

Scriptures to meditate on


For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18 NKJV)

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (Matthew 7:7, 8 NKJV)

Restore Me Dear Lord in Your Presence

20130917-073211.jpg

He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30 ESV)

In His presence is where I want to be. It’s where I need to be. I pray this for you as well dear brothers and sisters in Christ. I speak this word out to the nations. I speak this word out to those seeking truth and comfort for you will find it all in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

“Heavenly Father let us come before you with an open heart and mind ready to receive all that You have for us. May we triumph any obstacles we face this day. Your Word is our anchor and foundation for life. Let us become still and quiet as we are before You. Strengthen us this new day. Guide our lips to speak edifying things for truly this is something this world needs. As Your humble vessels, may we DECREASE so that You may INCREASE in our lives. Renew, restore and revive us in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen”

I encourage you this day to spend some time with The Lord. You never know what He has to share with you. I may be life changing. Someone needs a word of encouragement, someone needs some wise counsel, there’s a broken heart, an angry soul ready to throw in the towel. But God has a word! He has a word that is meant to raise up and transform! Praise Him, Hallelujah!!

If its not for you, it’s meant to be shared with another! Let us not grow weary in well doing. Let us not just become comfortable in the blessings that the Father has given us. Let us look to the needs of others.

In His presence, we are gifted beyond measure. His words are priceless. Nothing can compare. How mighty is He! Sow the seeds that will reap bountifully in due time Allow The Gardener to water the soil and then wait for the harvest. Be blessed one and all!

Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. (II Thessalonians 3:16 NKJV)

Ride on King Jesus!! NO MAN CANNOT HINDER ME!

Praise the Lord from whom ALL blessings flow! I just wanted to share a song with you that I have not heard in a mighty long time! It came to my heart out of nowhere but praise be to God….. it got me on my feet as I exclaimed that NO MAN cannot hinder me. NO MAN cannot hinder you! The Bible tells us in Romans 8:31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[c]

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

That passage of scripture is deep on my heart. Dear Reader, rise up this day and claim victory in your circumstances no matter what the natural eye sees and the ear hears. God loves us! God has the final say over your life. He is your Judge, He is your Creator. You are who He says you are! The enemy comes to attack in subtle ways like a little lamb and in voracious ones like a lion. There is no light in him. He is the prince of darkness from the pit of hell. Be it through people or circumstances, your boat may get rocked or it may even turn over. Stand your ground, put on the WHOLE Armor of God and go out with authority in the victorious name of Jesus Christ!! Do you hear me?!! God woke you up to be encouraged in Him, not to be defeated!

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— (Ephesians 6: 10-18)

I’m gonna praise the Lord with you! I don’t know what you are going through but I know who does better than anyone else. JESUS!!!!!!

RIDE ON KING JESUS!! HALLELUJAH! GLORY BE TO GOD!!

Be encouraged this day. Take your heart to the throne and place your burdens at His feet. The Lord will raise you up and strengthen you.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
