COME FLY WITH ME

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that today's message will touch the hearts of those that just need a little bit of encouragement and comfort.
 
As I was in my devotion time this morning, it started rainy really hard and thundering.  I don't mind the rain, but believe it or not this 49 years old woman don't like the sound of thunder.  Sometimes I can hear the thunder coming from one end of the block to my house.  Loud thunder makes me feel like my house is going to blow away, especially when the house literally shakes.
 
So, while I was trying to stay focus and keep worshipping the Lord, in the back of my mind, I could not control the fact that I am afraid of that loud noise.  Then I began crying about something that I am going through right now.  Listen closely as I give you exactly what I heard the Holy Spirit say to me.
 
It's only thunder that I have created.  Nothing that was, is or ever will be will not be created without ME.  You are focusing on the loud noise that you are hearing.  The devil wants to keep you focus on the loud noise that the world is creating around you.  The devil is attempting to get you to stop worshipping ME.  The devil is loud but so AM I.  He will never be as loud as I AM.
 
Sometimes we can visually see a storm brewing up in the clouds.  There are other times when it just start pouring down so hard while you are in the middle of the block.  You don't have an umbrella or a raincoat so you might get wet.  There are times where we might not listen to what God is saying to us and God will allow you to get a little wet.  You won't get caught in the storm, God says, "because I love you so much".  Now God is saying, "You have to fly above the clouds, above the loud sound of the thunder, above the storm".  God says, "The rain and storms comes from the clouds, so you have to fly above the clouds".  God says, "COME FLY WITH ME".
 
I don't need to make a message longer when God says, "That's all to write".  PRAISE GOD!

REWRITE THE SCRIPT

Good morning, my sister's in Christ Jesus!  I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
(Psalms: 25:1-5), Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.  O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed: let not mine enemies triumph over me.  Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.  Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
 
Today we're going to see a movie.  How many of you go to the movies based on the commercial that they show on TV?  I am one of those people.  Then when you get to the show, you pay that outrageous price for the ticket and of course, gotta have that extra butter popcorn.  You are so excited to be seeing the movie that you have been waiting for.  You get comfortable in your seat, get yourself situated only to find out that the commercials on the television had the best part of the movie.  You leave the show made that you spent all that money for nothing, but buttery popcorn.
 
If you have decided to get off the script that God has written for your life, you will be surprised to know that the devil only showed you the good parts of your life.  The devil has a way of deceiving women into thinking that we can make it without Jesus as long as we have a man in our live that says he loves us.  You read God's script (the bible) for your life and decided that it was too much trouble to act out.  In the meantime, you have seen only a glimpse of what the devil wants you to see.  He wants you to see money, cars, houses and he will not show you the price you may have to pay to be the star in his movie.  All you know is that you are happy right now, but what about when things get tough in the middle of the movie.  Or what about the end of the movie, when you finally figured out that you are just a stand-in for the movie.  Because you have not studied the script that God gave you and started blindly playing a part in Satan's movie, you are totally lost.  You don't even know what scene you are in and now you realize that you are starring in a low budget movie.
 
There is an out for you.  It made be time for you to quit orchestrating your own life.  Pray ask for God's forgiveness and get with His program.  You still have an opportunity to rewrite the script for your life, but you cannot do it without accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  Repent.  God makes "all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose".  Satan makes all things work together for his good until your life has not purpose.  PRAISE GOD!
 
"Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry", is your ministry, you are a member of the ministry.  Please remember my sister's in Christ Jesus, that I am always available for prayer or just to have someone to touch and agree with or just talk.  I never share your business on facebook, and those of you that have called me know that once we give it to God, we don't give it to facebook.  Call me at 678-69-3179.  God bless you, woman of God.

WILL YOU EAT CAKE?

Good Morning, Mighty woman of God!  Happy Monday!  I thank God each day for you and your prayers for me.  The Lord has blessed me with this ministry, for over a year and I continue to learn and grow through Him.
 
I come up with these catchy little titles sometimes while in my devotion time with the Holy Spirit.  Sometimes I laugh when there is a kinda funny message and sometimes I cry when He gives me an OUCH message, because sometimes the message is for me too.  Depending on where you are in Christ, this can be a laugh or OUCH message.  Enjoy!
 
Yesterday I was reading in the book of John and what caught my attention was Jesus asking the disciples, "Do you love me".  He asked that question three times, "Do you love me, do you love me, do you love me".  Jesus did not say those words back to back because in between asking Peter and others replay was yes.  But I could imagine what they were thinking, when Jesus kept asking them the question as if He didn't hear their answer.  If our parents where to ask us something three times, we would begin to question ourselves, it is just nature for someone to do that.  There was nothing wrong with Jesus' hearing, there was something wrong with the disciples answer.  But then Jesus goes on to say, "If you love me, then feed my sheep".  That is the focus for today's message.  Although it is not titled "Feed my sheep".  You'll see why.  I kept hearing the words, "feed my sheep" from the Lord.  Last night as I read and then again in my devotion time.  Now here's the way that the Spirit of the Lord gave me the message.
 
I've been out of school for a very long time and it is hard for me to remember all those little "Mother Goose" stories.  There was a series of "Mother Goose" stories and nursery rhymes in books that were fun to read.  The one that the Holy Spirit brought back to my mind was the one about the "Mother Hen".  Stay with me, I'm going somewhere!  Anyway, the mother hen was going to bake a cake.  She had three little kids (chicks) and she asked them, "Who wants cake?"  All three of them got excited and answered, "we do".  So she asked them, "who will help me pick some wheat for the flour".  All three of them came up with excuses as to why they couldn't help.  When she returns home with the wheat, she asked all three, "who will help me gran the wheat for flour".  All three of them came up with excuses that they could not help.  So the mother hen, makes the flour.  After the flour is done, the mother hen asked all three, "who will help me bake the cake".  All three where too busy to help.  So the mother hen bakes it herself.  As hours past and the cake was smelling good, the mother hen checks on the cake and takes it out of the oven.  Then she says to her three chicks (children), "who will help me eat this cake".  All three of them got excited, grabs spoons and shout loudly, "I will, I will, I will".  The mother hens says to them, "NO, you did not want to help me get the wheat, make the flour or bake the cake, so you will NOT eat any cake".
 
Well, you get the meaning.  Now there is a reason why the Lord had me to give this message.  Especially because I would have never thought about that "Mother Goose" tale of the mother hen.
 
Jesus' question to you today is, have you feed my sheep.  Sometimes when the Lord ask us to do, say or don't do something, we come up with a bunch of meaningless excuses.  We can't get up early to pray because we went to bed late, tired.  We don't speak to our co-workers about Him.  If people in your everyday circle do not even know that you are a believer of Christ, there is something wrong with that picture.  Jesus says, "Feed my sheep.  Go to the highways and bi-ways".  But so many times we are just to busy to even answer that call to be a vessel.  God is not asking you to do anything, but allow Him to use you as a vessel.  Some people think that they are doing Christ a favor by showing up at church on Sundays, like you will receive a "get out of jail free card".
 
So my question to you today is, WILL YOU EAT CAKE?  Will you answer the call.  Do whatever it is that is required of you by the Lord so that when it's time to eat, He will not pass you by, you will get a big piece of cake, just because you said, "YES".  GIVE GOD SOME PRAISE TODAY!

DEVOTION

Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Devotion.  What is devotion?  The word devotion is the root word of the word devote. 
Devote: To give or apply one's time, attention, or self entirely to a particular activity or cause.  To set apart for a specific purpose or use. 
Devoted:  Felling or exhibiting strong attachment or loyalty, dedicated. 
Devotion: Ardent attachment or loyalty.  An act of religious observance or prayer, when private.
 
My question to you today is, do you have time set aside that you spend with the Lord?  Is your prayer life centered around the Lord or is the Lord centered around your prayer life.  The difference is, when you have a life that is centered around the Lord, that means that whatever is going on in your life, you stay devoted to spending time with the Lord.  If you have devotion (time with the Lord) centered around your life means that you only devote your time to the Lord when circumstances in your life have the need for prayer.
 
When I first started attending church on a regular basis and participating in different ministries of my church, I had a great mentor.  I say that because she played a very significant part in my beginning to understand more about Christ, then just reading my bible.  To me, Catherine was the most humble person that I knew and I wanted to know the Lord more intimately.  I wanted what she had, when it came to knowledge of the Lord.
 
One day, while running errands with Catherine I began talking about all the things that I do in a day and how much time I spent doing things for my family.  Then she asked me, "When do you have devotion?"  "Devotion, I asked, what is devotion?  What do you mean?  "When do you spend quiet time with the Lord?"  My reply, "Well, I never thought about that.  I pray everyday".  Her reply, "Devotion time is prayer time, but it is time that you have set aside just for the Lord."  I will never forget that conversation and to this day, she probably has no idea that at that very moment, she changed my life and my relationship with the Lord.
 
Mighty woman of God, if you center your life around (devotion) prayer, you will have less 911 calls to the Lord.  If you just devote your life to prayer according to your situation or circumstances you will have more 911 calls to the Lord.  One of the definitions of devotion is, "a sense of loyalty".  Are you loyal to the Lord everyday?  Does your loyalty to the Lord depend on what YOUR needs for the day is.  Are you loyal to the Lord no matter what is going on in your life?  Are you loyal to the Lord when YOU have time.  Are you still loyal to the Lord, now that He has blessed you with a new job?  Now that things are going great in your life, do you still devote your time to the Lord?
 
Guess what happened to me on Tuesday.  Okay, I have devotion time every morning in the privacy of my bedroom between 10AM and 10:30A, depending on when my husband wakes up.  On Tuesday, I had a doctors appointment at 10A and I was not able to keep my same time of devotion.  As I sat in the waiting room, I begin to miss the Holy Spirit.  I actually sat there thinking about the doctor's appointment taking away from my time with the Lord.  Then I began talking to the Lord and all of a sudden, I felt the presence of the Lord.  And then I heard the Holy Spirit say, "You don't have to be at home.  Because you devote your mornings to me, I am here with you now".  Boy, did I smile.
 
PRAISE GOD, FOR HE IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED!!

TROUBLE VS. DRAMA

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Today's message is an OUCH message.  I know you ladies like the feel good messages, so when you get to an OUCH, just say, "She must be talking about someone else".
 
(Psalms 27:5), For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me: He shall set me up upon a rock.
 
Okay my sister's in Christ Jesus, here we go, remember, if this message hurts too much, just say, "My friend needs to read this message.
 
The bible has so many scriptures about how good God is to His sheep (us).  How God comes to our rescue over and over again.  How gracious God is towards us.  The bible also has a lot of scriptures about God hiding us in His bosom.  One thing that is not written in the bible is that God will help us in our time of drama.  There is a hug difference between TROUBLE and DRAMA.
 
Trouble can come upon us because of the way of this world.  Because the enemy has been hurled down to the earth, we encounter times of trouble.  Psalms 27:5, God will hide us in times of trouble and put us upon a rock.  God will hide you from the enemy, so that he will not find us.  The devil sets he eyes on us and our family and there are certain circumstances that may rise up because of that.  There are times when we have done all that we can do and we still end up in times of distress, that's just the way that things go.  During the times of trouble, it is up to us to continue to hold on to our faith in God.  It's up to us to continue to pray, praise and worship God.  And as we wait patiently, through faith, we know that all things will work together for them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.
 
Drama can come upon us when we don't do all that we should according to the Word of God.  Some of us bring about drama in our lives that is surely not caused by God.  Some of us have so much drama in our lives that we push God into a box and He will not move on our behalf.  We call out to God to help us with the drama in our lives that we have caused.  I people always say that God's hands are never tied and that God can do anything.  Well, this is true in some instances.  We tie God's hands by not allowing Him to change our dramatic situations.  When God gives us opportunity after opportunity to get our lives in order and we still settle for the drama in our lives, we tie God's hands.  What are some of the drama that some of us have?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  Too much drama in our lives can cause us to post things that should be secret on Facebook.  We curse people out on Facebook, like people really care if you don't like someone.  We fight over a man that doesn't deserve you on Facebook.  We drive around looking for our man all night or scratching up cars, destroying our own property because of drama.  We don't speak to our friends anymore because they stopped listening to your drama.  Cursing and fussing every time you think that you deserve the blessings that God gave to someone else.  Some women aren't happy unless they are created more and more drama in their lives.
 
Again, there are countless scriptures in the bible that's written about how God will help us in our time of need or trouble.  God is not concerned with your drama, nor is God going to keep waiting for you to decide whether or not you want to give up causing drama in your life.  There is no way that you can have a healthy relationship with God or another else, if you keep the drama.  PRAISE GOD!

SHOUT IT OUT!

Good morning, my sister's in Christ Jesus!  I speak the blessings of God's favor upon your life.  And that you stay strong and encouraged through the midst of a storm.  God bless you.
 
(Revelations 12:11), They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the words of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.  Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them!  But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you!  His is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.
 
Your past is a part of your future.  Time and time again, we hear ministers or our friends say that you cannot move forward if you are living in your past.  I totally agree with that statement.  But let me help you out a little further.  Don't live thinking about trying to change your past or wishing that certain bad events or difficult circumstances never happened.  God says for you to use your past to be a living testimony.  Look back only if you are willing to pull someone else into their future.
 
A lot of times when we think about difficult circumstance and horrific things that have happened to us in our past, we tend to cringe up at the very thought of it.  Some of us even go as far as to pray to the Lord that He would take those thoughts and memories away from us.  That is something that I have prayed about and not understanding why God would not removed horrific memories from me.  I could not understand why certain things would keep coming up over and over again in my heart and mind.  Believing that God loves me so much, I wondered why not just take those painful memories out of my mind for once and for all.
 
The two things that I want to touch base on is (1) we can overcome the enemy by the words of our testimonies.  Turn your trials into testimonies.  If you have been set free from addictions, sexual abuse, drugs, rejected feelings, etc.  Don't hold your head down every time someone mentions it or you hear someone referring to people in the church.  Hold your head up high when you know that nobody but God could have brought you out of that situation.  Praise God for having mercy and loving you so much that He didn't mind getting a little dirty to snatch you out of the hands of the devil.  Never be ashamed of your past if you have moved on.  Share your story, shout it out to all the women that are where you have been, letting them know that there is hope for them through Jesus Christ.
 
(2)  The devil has come down here to us.  And the bible says that he is furious because he knows that he time is short.  The devil is furious at you every time you open your mouth to tell your testimony because you are snatching another woman out of his grasp.  The devil is furious at you because you did not die when he set his eyes on you to destroy you with drugs, abuse, rejection and everything but the kitchen sink.  The devil is furious at you because you are not giving him no glory about anything in your past.
 
It has taken me awhile to understand that God did not remove any of my past because He wants me to shout it out to all of you in the ministry.  The trials that I have overcome through my Lord and Savior are now my testimonies.  PRAISE GOD!

I HEAR YOU

Good morning, my sisters in Christ Jesus.  Today, I had another message for you, but I cannot give it today because the Holy Spirit has a different message.  Bare with me through this one as I listen closely to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying.
 
You have probably heard the term, "pray until something happens".  Well, I was going to title that message P.U.S.H. but God says that is not so.  You do not have to pray until something happens.  I thought about it, the moment that I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that to me.
 
God says that our problem is not that we don't pray until something happens, our problems is perseverance.  God says that He hears us the moment we ask something of Him.  If you keep praying about the same thing, you are saying that you don't have the faith to believe that God will bless you with whatever you have asked of Him.  Our problem is that some of us are not willing to persevere until your blessing comes through.  Some of us that are willing in our mind to persevere, are not able to persevere in our hearts.  If we don't have the faith that God is working out all things for our good, then perseverance is going to be a problem.
 
When we are faced with the most difficulty of times, that is when we must have the most faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.  There may be times in our lives when we think that God is not listening or that we have strayed so far away from Him that He will not answer our prayers or come to our rescue.  God says, "If you look back over some of the most difficult times, the times when you thought that you could not make it another step, and not only have you made it another step, but you have made it another day.  Think back over some of the worst situations that you were in, and remember that He did not leave you or forsake you.  Think back over some of the times when you even wished you were dead, it was God that held on to you.  Think back over the times when you didn't know where you and your children were going to live or even what you were going to eat, it was God that upheld you with His right hand.  It was God that fought the battles that you know in your heart that you could not have done it without Him.
 
God says, P.U.S.H., Persevere Until Something Happens.
 
I want to remind each of you that because you are in "Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry", you can call me anytime.  I am here for you, I care about your well-being and I genuinely love each of you.  Please don't every let the enemy beat you down so badly that he will even trick you into not calling me.  We can persevere together.  678-629-3179.

GOD MADE DIRT . . . DIRT DON'T HURT

Good morning, my sisters in Christ Jesus!  I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
 
How many of you remember that saying, "God made dirt, dirt don't hurt".  We would say that phrase when you drop something edible on the ground.  You pick it up and quickly say, "God made dirt, dirt don't hurt".  Then like something really magical just happened, we eat whatever it was that was dropped on the ground.  Well, today, God is going to give us a "dirt don't hurt", message.  What the Holy Spirit is going to do with today's message is to give you a new name and that name is, SEED.  To be able to receive this message, you are going to have to put on your spiritual caps and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
 
Ok, your name is SEED, so keep that in mind.  The moment that you decided to accept our Lord, Jesus Christ to come into your heart, you became an heir to Him.  The moment that you became a daughter of the Lord, He dug a hole and covered you with dirt so that you would grow.  While you are in that dirt trying to crack open and push your way through so that the sun (Son) will shine on you, you have encountered all kinds of forces of evil to keep you down in that dirt.  But God has placed a white picket fence (hedge of protection) all around the dirt that He planted His SEED.
 
The enemy has tried to keep you down by sending you a man that has abused and misused you.  You grew up in a household that caused you to be sexually abused and misused. You got an abortion, so the enemy is whispering in your ear, that you aren't qualified to receive God's grace and mercy.  The enemy has tried to keep you down by introducing you to drugs and alcohol.  The enemy has tried to still your joy and your mind.  You are on anti-depression medication and he wants to keep you right where you are.  The enemy has tried to keep you down by placing people with a form of godliness around you.
 
Now, my sister, watch the work of the Lord, Jesus Christ.  The Lord has kept that hedge of protection around you so that you could grow, no matter what the enemy throws your way, you have survived.  God has given you the ability to push through that dirt.  Push pass all the weeds that the devil has planted around you (drugs, alcohol abuse, sexual, mental and physical abuse).  Push pass the fact that you were raised in an unloving household.  Push threw the fact that you may have a child out of wedlock.  Push pass the people that you have trusted and they let you down.  Push your SEED threw all that dirt and when you come out, you will come out smelling like a rose.  The Word of God says, "You will be like a tree, planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth good fruit, in your due season.  Hang on to God and wait for your season to grow in Him.  GOD MADE DIRT . . . DIRT DON'T HURT.  Even though you may have been dropped on the ground, God can pick you up, and blow your dirt away and place you in His bosom. God's desire is for His SEED to grow, get stronger and stronger as the sun (Son) shines on it.  Though your SEED maybe crimson red, by sin, God has turned it around for His glory, watering  His SEED to make it white as snow.  PRAISE GOD!

SERVANTUDE

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  This is the day that the Lord has made rejoice and be glad in it.  Rejoice!
 
(Proverbs 31:10-12), A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman who is he who can find her?  She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies of pearls.  The heart of her husband trusts in her confidently and relies on and believes in her securely, so that he has no lack of honest gain or need of dishonest spoil.  She comforts, encourages, and does him only good as long as there is life within her.
  
I read an article was titled, "Servantude", written by Pastor Mark Jeske.  Servantude in a marriage means that the husband and wife intentionally cultivate the spirit that they find greater satisfaction in bringing benefit to their partner than to themselves.  It means that parents will exhaust themselves in behalf of their kids and tell the world that it was totally worth it.  It means that you will be a terrific employee, because you can suppress your own ego at work and lift up the company's will-being above your own.
 
The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart concerning "Servantude".  I read the article, then my Moses spirit kicked in (my Moses spirit, God calls it because I always ask questions).  Anyway, God was speaking to me about my marriage and He kept bringing me to that word, INTENTIONALLY.  I really got stuck there.  So my first response to that was, "Okay, Lord, let me get this straight, you want me to intentionally throw my heart out there on the line.  You want me to change that 'me attitude' and actually let my husband in that brick wall that I worked so hard on building, to tear it down.  Are you saying that You want me to walk a very tight rope, and intentionally try to put my husband before my own needs?"  Gods, answer, "YES".  My reply, "Okay, Lord, if you are telling me to put my guard down and put my heart on the line, then that must mean that you are going to protect my heart.  You are telling me that You will not let me get hurt."  God's answer, "YES".  My reply, "Okay".
 
So the first thing that I intentionally did was so surprising to my husband.  Afterwards, I watched his reaction and he was happy.  I just watched him and I laughed.  He knew nothing about my conversation with God.  I actually felt joy in my heart, knowing that what I did made his happy.  Then I laughed and said, "Wow, Lord, that really feels great.  Thank you so much".  So far, my heart is still intact and as usual, God is faithful, not to let me get hurt.  I cannot say that the brick wall is completely down, but I am working on it.  PRAISE GOD!
 
Next, time for my son.  My son was looking forward to orientation at the High School that he will be attending on Wednesday.  I am so excited for him.  We got up and out of the house before 10am.  We walked around the school and took care of registration.  Walked up three flights of stairs to homeroom to get his schedule.  Walked around a little bit more, because he wanted to see the school.  After that we went to get school supplies, at two different stores.  Then back home.  At 6pm, the school had a tailgate party and get to know section.  That lasted until 8pm.  I hung in there the whole time, the air conditioner did not work and my legs were beginning to swell.  I wanted to leave but I just kept looking at how happy my son was just sitting there.  The reason why I am telling you this story is because I have fibromyalgia and it was a painful day, but I didn't say anything, not a word.  PRAISE GOD!
 
My message to you today, is that no matter who we are, or how far we may have come in Christ, there is always going to be room for growth.  You have to be able to accept the Lord's chastisement and be willing to go a little further in Him.  If you don't admit that you need growth in certain areas of your life than you are stopping your growth in Christ and missing out on a lot of blessings.  Obedience brings the blessings of the Lord to shower down upon you.  Always be willing to grow, God's desire is to help you, not harm you.   PRAISE GOD!

HANDS OFF

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  Today's message will be a blessing to all that read today.  You are in one of these categories.
 
(1 Chronicles 16:22), TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED, DO MY PROPHET NO HARM.
(Psalms 105:15), TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED, DO MY PROPHET NO HARM.
 
Just as I was typing those scriptures for you today, the Holy Spirit says, "Go back and use capital letters".
 
The people of God and even the worldly people, tend to take that scripture, very lightly.  God is clear as to His Word and I believe that is the reason why He says for me to put in CAPS.  Women are so competitive that not only are we competitive in worldly things but it has also spread over to the churches, (the Body of Christ).  We think that we can do or say whatever we want to each other and hurt each other with our very own mouths.  The thing about that scripture that will cause you danger is that you don't know who is God's anointed and you don't know who is God's prophet.  I know for a fact that while growing up as a teenager and well into my adult years, I did not know who God has chosen and I still don't know everyone.  The thing about it is that you might speak against someone and just because they are not acting like a child of God, does not mean that they are not.  That person may not have flourished in their spiritual gift yet.  Can you be absolutely positive that you know all of God's anointed women or prophets?
 
One of the reasons why I am giving this message today is that I do want you to know that I read a lot of Facebook messages and posts.  There are over 100 women in the ministry, so I don't get a chance to read all of them, nor am I supposed to.  I do want you to know that I can hear, even to those that don't come right out and say what you are struggling with on a day to day basis.
 
A lot of you ladies are struggling with your sisters in Christ.  Because you have an anointing on your life and the Holy Spirit has given you spiritual gifts.  You have women in the church that are jealous over your gift.  They say to themselves, "Why she got that gift?"  With the most horrible attitude and that is clearly one of the reasons why God's has not chosen them, He chose you, with your humble spirit, and God knows that you will not abuse your gifts.  Maybe some of you are like myself, a people person.  You can't figure out why people are constantly talking about you, when you have done nothing wrong or harmful to them.  You thought that you would be able to keep your spiritual gifts and your same friends, but you can't, because of that spirit of jealousy, that you never noticed until you started stirring up your spiritual gifts for the Kingdom of God.  I used to say that having certain spiritual gifts can also be a curse.  Come on now, don't get so heavenly minded now, that I have made that statement.  I am simply stating that certain spiritual gifts, won't allow you to have friends.  People turn up their nose at you, "Who do she think she is?"  Before you even say or do anything you have already been condemned, by your so-called sister in Christ.  I know that there have been times when you just want to scream, "Lord smite them, smite them all".  Here's some hope for you.  God will place the right women in your life.  He will give you at least one or two true friends, that will help you and not harm you.  A true friend that will step you up, not step on you.  Also, you can pray and ask God to place the right people in your circle.  Yes, God loves you that much. 
 
Now for those of you that are in the category, in which you never have anything good to say about anything.  You have malice in your heart, whether you speak it or not, it's in your heart, be very careful about who you speak badly about.  Read that scripture, God is not a man that He should lie.  If you don't want to be around God's elite, peculiar, and blessed, it would be best for you to get out of their way.  PRAISE GOD!

PRAYERS AVAILETH MUCH!

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  I love, love, love this scripture.  I pray that the Holy Spirit will bring it to light for you.
 
(Daniel 10:10-13), A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.  He said, "Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you." And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.  Then he continued, "Do not be afraid, Daniel.  Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.  But the prince of the Persian Kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.
 
Daniel was a mighty man of God.  He was also considered a friend of God.  In other words, God called Daniel His friend.  That's awesome!  How many of you know that if you have a prayer life (a life centered around prayer), that God calls you His friend.  A life centered around prayer is different than prayer centered around your life.  If prayer is centered around your life, that means that you pray when you get a chance, or when it is convenient for you.  A life centered around prayer means that you pray in order to get through things of this world.  You don't have to eat first.  You don't have to go to the store first, you pray for guidance.  You are seeking first the Kingdom of God and all His righteousness and you know that all things will be added unto you.
 
Daniel had been fasting and praying for 21 days, for an answer from God for the interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar's dream.  While on his knees praying, an angel appeared to Daniel and told him that God answered his prayer from the very first day that he prayed.  But the angel goes on to say that he was held up in the spirit realm by the by the prince of Persia for 21 days.  The prince of Persia is the enemy.  The angel also goes on to say that he had to get help from Michael, a chief prince (an angel).
 
Woman of God, the Lord wants you to know that He has heard your prayers.  He has seen your tears and you cries in the night.  You are considered God's friend and His desire is for you to have the very best.  Sometimes prayers and blessings that you have been praying for are being held up in the spirit realm.  Sometimes you have to get on your knees until they hurt, fast and speak your blessings into existence and do spiritual warfare.  You have to know how to war in the spirit.  Speak in tongues, pray and travail.  Just like Daniel, you may have to fast.  You have to be willing to do whatever the Holy Spirit tells you to do.  The prince of Persia, does not want you to receive your blessings, or your spiritual gifts.
 
The most important thing about that scripture is that Daniel first humbled himself before God.  If you have not humbled yourself before God, your blessing will be detained until you do.  The Spirit of Humility will get you very far in your relationship with God, it builds your character.  A lot of us think that we are humble and meek, but we are not.  Pray and ask God to show you the areas in your life that need to be more humble.  Even though Daniel was considered a righteous man and a friend of God's, he still presented himself humble to God.  AMEN!

CARBON COPY

Mighty woman of God!  I speak blessings of love, peace and joy upon your live today.  Message has a little sting, so keep an open mind as you read.
 
(2 Tim. 3:5-7), For although they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it (their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession).  Avoid all such people (turn away from them).  For among them are those who worm their way into homes and captivate silly and weak-natured and spiritually dwarfed women, loaded down with (the burden of their) sins (and easily) swayed and led away by various evil desires and seductive impulses.  (These weak women will listen to anybody who will teach them); they are forever inquiring and getting information, but are never able to arrive at a recognition and knowledge of the Truth.
 
I thought about having a good man on my side.  I prayed that God would send me a man.  My exact words were, "God, please send me a man".  Within a weeks time, I thought that my prayers were answered by God.  But instead, Satan sent me a carbon copy of the man that God had for me.  I say that the enemy heard my prayers, very loudly and kept me in bondage and tormented for over ten years.  I am not angry over that, but I did not wait on God.  We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but powers and principalities of this world.  That scripture has kept me from being bitter or unforgiving towards people.  That scripture will keep you free from bitterness and unforgiveness towards anyone that has caused harm to you.
 
Having a form of godliness. You can't change the original.  No matter how many times you look at that carbon copy, you cannot change it to be the original.  Satan is very cunning and will not hesitate to send you a form of a godly man.  He will not hesitate to send you a carbon copy of the man that you desire to have as your husband.  If you wait on the Lord to send you the man that He has already chosen for you, before you were even in existence, you will get the original version.  A lot of times, we as women, try to change the character or personality of a man.  All of our hearts desires in a man, cannot be molded, it has to be his character.  Now, I am not saying that a man cannot or won't change certain things about himself, mainly because we change certain things due to age.  He may not go to the club like he used to or he may began to help more with the kids, do some house cleaning.  Those are a few things that he can change on his own. 
 
I purposely gave you the Amplified Bible version of those scriptures because the Amplified is clearer and it does not sugar coat what God is saying.
 
What makes you think that God would send you a carbon copy of the man that He has picked out for you?  What makes you think that God wants for you to shack up with a man, and an ungodly man at that?  What makes you think that God wants you to live in bondage with a man?  What makes you think that God wants you to be beat on, cheated on and cursed out everyday?  Women tend to put up with a lot of things from a man waiting for that carbon copy to become an original.
 
I pray that I have touched someone's heart, even though this message sounds a little harsh, we as women need to value ourselves more than any man.  Once we begin to value ourselves and become jealous over ourselves we can move out of bondage from a man and live in peace and harmony with God.  PRAISE HIM, ANYHOW!
