    OVERHEARING BUT IGNORING WHAT THEY SAID

    Ignore what “they” say!  Ignore “their” words of doubt and unbelief.  Ignore ALL “their” words that do not line up with what the Lord  has spoken concerning your situation.  Continue to stand on His word knowing that He is more than able to perform just as HE SAID!!!  And in not too many days, you shall see the results of the self-fulfilling power of the Lord’s words.  Your victory is sure and imminent!  Hallelujah!!!
    Mark 5:
    35While He was still speaking, there came some from the ruler’s house, who said [to Jairus], Your daughter has died. Why bother and distress the Teacher any further?    36Overhearing but ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.

        37And He permitted no one to accompany Him except Peter and James and John the brother of James.

        38When they arrived at the house of the ruler of the synagogue, He looked [carefully and with understanding] at [the] tumult and the people weeping and wailing loudly.

        39And when He had gone in, He said to them, Why do you make an uproar and weep? The little girl is not dead but is sleeping.

        40And they laughed and jeered at Him. But He put them all out, and, taking the child’s father and mother and those who were with Him, He went in where the little girl was lying.

        41Gripping her [firmly] by the hand, He said to her, Talitha cumi–which translated is, Little girl, I say to you, arise [from the sleep of death]!

        42And instantly the girl got up and started walking around–for she was twelve years old. And they were utterly astonished and overcome with amazement.

    FOR THE HURTING AND WEARY…

    This message is for those who are hurting and so weary this day.  Many are the very vessels that the Lord has chosen to raise up in these days to carry His glory.  The Lord would have you know that He is in control.  There is no trouble or problem that you now face which surprises your Lord.  He knows and sees all…even the end from the beginning.  His refining fires are at work purging all the dross from His precious vessels.  You are not alone for He is with you and watching ever so closely.  He will not allow the fire to burn for one second too long or one degree too hot.  What you feel is close to destroying you is actually making you into His precious vessel of honor. You are greatly loved and highly valued by the Lord.

    But also know that the enemy recognizes and senses divine destiny and anointing on your lives.  Therefore he is attempting to plant seeds of fear, doubt, distrust, and unbelief to burden you down with worldly concerns. He plans to distract and hinder or even prevent you from fulfilling your high calling.  But lift up your heads and know from whence your help comes. This is your fight of faith.  Have faith in the Lord God Almighty and cast your cares upon Him.  He knows the plans He has for you and will lead you there.  This is a time in which you must trust in Him fully and as never before. It is not a time to just say you trust in Him, but the time to believe and rely on Him as your Provider, your Strength, your Defense, your High Tower, your All in All, your Blessed Hope.  You will see His marvelous works and wonders manifest on your behalf for He will surely and most certainly see you through and perfect all that concerns you.   Only Trust in Him and be not afraid!

     

    I Peter 5:

     6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

     7Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

     8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

     9Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

     10But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

     11To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    CROOKED PLACES STRAIGHT

    There has been a detour set up on a roadway that we regularly travel for some time.  It has been a very difficult and dangerous stretch  to travel as the detour was very crooked requiring slow speed and keen awareness to maneuver through safely.  Under best conditions we could expect to sit in a slow moving line of backed-up traffic, and most days we found ourselves at a total standstill for long periods before moving on through.  But just this week we came upon the stretch of road only to discover that the detour was gone.  A short straight stretch of asphalt had replaced the dangerous crooked roadway.  There was no longer any delays or backed-up traffic with which to deal.  It was now just smooth sailing straight through…what had been so difficult had suddenly become so easy!
     
    The Lord is speaking to many of you through this.  Hear His message and be blessed…
     
    I have gone before you and made the way.  Now walk in it.
     
    Exodus 23:
    20Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
     
    Isaiah 45:
    2I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: 3And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

     

    HIGH EXPECTATION

    You are and have been waiting on the Lord. 
    You are and have been expecting miracles. 
    You have reached your due date (time). 
    Delivery could come at any moment…even this day!   Rejoice in high expectation!  
     
    Romans 8:
    18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
