Resting Again

The Lord shared with me early this morning that many of us have forgotten how to rest in His Presence. We’re so focused on praying, coming all stiff and tense to the throne of Our Creator..prepared for battle..already and coming to attack the Kingdom of darkness in prayer. ….when in reality. He wants us to find rest for our souls (Matthew 11:28-32). His Presence is the one place we are called to find REST in. Not in this world. For we will soon leave this earth. Rest in His Presence. Know. Remember God is The Almighty. In His Presence is fullness of joy and pleasures on His Right Hand–Jesus His Son–The Love of Our Souls
Forevermore (Psalm 16:11).

Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! -Psalm 46:10


Prayer Warriors at times forget that He is GOD. He knows and controls all things.

We also forget He is OUR Savior and LORD FIRST. Our times are in His Hands and nothing, no, no one can pluck us out His Will, His Plan, as we diligently seek Him. You and I belong to Him.

We belong to Him.
So, before we go off into battle on our knees for prayer…let us remember God is God. A
nd He wants to fill us with His insurmountable favor and love first. And give us peace and rest. 

“Blessed Assurance” means you are rest assured that no matter what happens-YAHWEH, The Creator of Heaven and Earth has got you covered and will bless you and protect you from this point forward and into eternity.

God bless you. May we have great Shalom, wholeness, peace, stillness before Him today. Amen.


I LOVE YOU ALL
Have a great week ahead,
Resting in His Presence,
Amarachi

We All Have A Victory Story

There are many things that we have overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony.

Revelation 12:11

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

What is one thing–one problem–circumstance or situation that God has delivered you from?

Or a problem you had to walk through that you overcame by your faith in The Lord?

The days are long gone that I keep silent for what God has done in my life.

I’m thankful for His Love and the overwhelming victory God has given me through His Son, my Savior, and Lord. Don’t allow fear to keep you silent anymore. Share the good news of Christ–starting with your testimonies. Thank God you have one and ask HIM for courage to share it, in His Name.

Thank you, Father, for Your Overwhelming Love that has pulled us through and lifted us above our fears and storms! We thank you, Father, for all you have done.

For making us overcomers through the shed blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony.

We love you Lord,

In Jesus Name

We pray,

Amen.

Remember, to everything, there is a season,

To every purpose under the heaven

We will shine for His Glory as we speak the truth of His Overcoming Love to all far and near.

Shining,

Amarachi

Victory Week: More than You

When I was 17 years old, I had to have a lumpectomy. Though the growths were benign, there was a possibility that it could turn.
I was afraid. And I was wondering if this could be something that I had caused. From sins I have done.
All lies from satan.
But those thoughts were in my mind.
My mother, a seasoned nurse, cried. Many times…even as she prayed.
My father, usually even-tempered and calm was oh so quiet and worry deepened the lines of his face.
After several weeks,
Ignoring the lumps,
And the doctor’s diagnoses,
I mustered all the courage in me and came boldly to Him in prayer and told Him, tears trickling down my cheeks:
“Lord, I’m kind of scared. I don’t want to die. I ask you to heal me.
If you don’t and I have to get a surgery…I trust you anyway.
But I believe that you will protect me and the surgery will go right. I trust you Lord. in Your Son’s Name, Jesus, I pray, amen.”
I knew the thees, the thous,

However, this time…I was still and prayed the truth of how I was feeling before the Lord.
That day, as the nurses prepared me for surgery…
A peace that surpassed all human understanding blanketed the room.
I knew there was an angel-if not angels-protecting me
And I was not afraid anymore.
I was surrounded.
The Presence of God was there.
A nurse, coming into the room asked if this was my first surgery. I said yes.
Alarmed she said: “Wow, you’re so calm. And you are just 17 years old.” My mom spoke up and said:
“Yes, it’s The Presence of God.”
The surgery was a success,
And I healed beautifully.
At the tender age of 17
Clear hearted in mind and spirit made a decision
To not fear death,
But trust
The Lord would protect me and lead me home always. Amen.
I had the victory.
If not for my own sake, I believe my facing this test, deepened my trust in the Lord, as well as revealed what God’s Faithfulness and Peace looks like in those who believe. I pray the nurse who talked with me is changed, and comes to Christ for herself, and sees who He is.
It’s not about us.
It’s about the souls who will be reunited
In His Presence
Again.
And that is the ultimate victory.

 

This is victory week! Where I share the stories and triumphs I have had the Lord has brought me through.

SHARE with me! What challenges have you faced but now have victory over because of your faith in Jesus? Comment below!

VICTORY WEEK: Free to Be Me

I used to be a people pleaser. Deep down worried about people’s opinions of me. Worried about what they would think. Because of my personality, and at the time my ability to understand God’s heart of compassion in me, I loving and at times, stupidly, allowed people to take advantage of my character. It left unwanted and unnecessary scars that made me afraid to love again or reach out to people.
And that caused me to limit myself–and God–in many ways. I was low key for this portion of my life.
I hid it well. By excelling and overachieving, smiling, I silenced, I believed at that time, any possible criticisms people may try to have against me. And by being kind, yet distant, I felt that I could control a person’s ability to hurt me.
That’s still being controlled by others too…
But now–The Lord has freed me of that bondage.


Proverbs 29:25
“The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted.” 


Now, I freely give because I have been freely been given His Love.
I carry grace and trust the Lord that no matter what happens–I’m accepted by Him,
And that’s all that matters.
I am deeply cared for and loved by Him. And whoever treats me otherwise
It’s their loss.
Because now
No one can make me not share His Love–or my testimony. Because He has set me free. He has set me free from doubt,
Disease,
Shame,
Low self-esteem,
And pride.
That’s pride to hide what God has given you
of faith, love, and encouragement. Now, I am free. To be me. All He made me to be.

Thank you Father, Glory to Your Name. Amen.

Today is the day of victory–for Jesus causes us to TRIUMPH!

Remember, to everything, there is a season,

A time and purpose under heaven.

I pray we grow through this season of life, friends.

VICTORY WEEK

Yesterday, I was reminded again by The Lord of how much He has brought me through and the victories I have obtained through my faith in Him.

Every day this week (through my personal page via Instagram, and A Time 4 Everything’s Instagram and Twitter) I will be sharing some transparent areas God has given me VICTORY over. This week will be #VICTORYWEEK. And I pray you will join me by sharing some of the battles you have conquered over by the power of The Holy Spirit.

For the very of the first victory stories:
This time last year, my family and I were homeless.
And we had been for almost a year.
We had been evicted from our home (the second time) and due to my parent’s credit we were denied the opportunity to rent. Neither did we have the finances to try to convince landlords to let us move in.
We hopped from one hotel to another-
Seeking rest
And God provided for us in every place.
The Lord granted us wisdom and provision and favor with every manager. Even though we were scared at times we would be thrown out again, He always provided a way for us to pay the hotel bill.
If it had not been for The Lord sending people,
Giving us peace and strength in the midst of that season…
I’m not sure where in my life I would be.
All I know is,
Through much prayer, 
Sowing seed, being a blessing to my parents and others around me possibly going through harder situations; God blessed me and my family immensely.
Here I was thinking that all my seed was in vain. It was not.
He used those times of hardship.
Of grief. Of doubt. Of mourning over what was lost
To build my faith, deepen my character,
Trust and reliance on The Father.
Now we have 
A house, in a quiet peaceful neighborhood. Where  I grew up.
He is restoring some things
In more ways than one.
And yes, I am still seeking Him,
And worshipping Him
Believing for everything I need to come to pass…
However,
He is still behind the scenes 
Working
On me
And our hearts to receive all that He has in store for me.
God is faithful.
And causes us to triumph,
Have victory, 
Over every single thing that threatens to take us out.  
Where poverty, depression, shame, bitterness, and grief threatened to take us out. God is still on the throne and has destined me for more…the only eviction taking place now is satan and his demons!
God has caused us by His Spirit to overcome those emotions and the circumstances that we have faced. God is good. 
His mercy endures forever. He is faithful #VICTORYWEEK

Today is the day of victory–for Jesus causes us to TRIUMPH!

Remember, to everything, there is a season,

A time and purpose under heaven.

I pray we grow through this season of life, friends.

Blooming Hearts Pt. III

We are invited every day to receive healing and restoration from The Lord.
His mercies are new every morning…
Before we can enter into the new season of time,
Into blessings and The Place of Promise He has for us
We must be willing to be open, honest and vulnerable with Him.

In the last video of this series, we review the importance of healing with The Lord by remembering Who He is, and what He offers us every day.

 

Scripture References:

Hebrews 10:39 (NASB)
But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.

Lamentation 3:22-23 (NASB)
The Lord’s loving kindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
John 14:26 (NKJV)
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Blooming Hearts Pt. I

“They come to God because they know He is The Only One that can heal them.”

Before we can fulfill the plan of God for our lives, we need a change of heart.

 

This month I have taken the time to create a series entitled: “Blooming Hearts: Reflections on Vulnerability with The Lord” I have been currently walking through this, so I found teaching you all would us both understand what it truly means to be vulnerable and open with God, and how we can find healing in His Word. 

 

 

Be sure to tune in the rest of this month as we walk through why it is important for us to be open, vulnerable and real with The Lord.

And why truth in our hearts, toward Him, is essential in deepening our relationship with Him pivotal in our hearts being

  • Set free
  • Transformed and
  • Made whole

Preparing us for the grand future The Lord has in store for us.

Remember,

To everything, there is a season,

A time for every purpose under the heaven.

We will be changed, healed, set free and delivered as we share what is on our hearts with God–by being vulnerable and honest with The Lord during this season of change. Amen.

Keep Building Your Castle Pt.2

Maybe you have an unfinished faith project.

 

Maybe Jesus and His Angels are waiting for you and me to finish these dream castles.

With mind going,

lips flowing and confessing the dreams to pass, Jesus stands, waiting.

He expects you to finish. It is His Will for you to finish. He wants you to finish it because many souls will be able to benefit, live in, be set free, delivered, encouraged, inspired, and saved by the manifestation of your dreams.

And not only for others, He wants you to finish it so you can truly live in it, and enjoy the fulfillment of your dreams.

However, can you imagine, upon arriving into Heaven, to see all the Lord has for you, only to find out that the castles of dreams you began to build stood unfinished?

 

Do you have unfinished business? Do you have an abandoned dream or goal that you have forgotten, buried or neglected?

And what can you do about it? How do you embrace and begin to build the castles of your dreams and goals again?

Recognize God gave you the dreams in your heart.

“Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”–Psalm 37:4

God will give you what you desire–but what we at times fail to realize is that your desire–your dreams, your castles, built up in Heaven, is sincerely His dreams for you. God places desires in your heart. He will also give His children exactly what He plans, and prepares for their lives–and places it so close so you do not miss it.

He places His love, and His dreams, deep within your heart.

Now you will be in a place to where you can actually walk by faith.

Faith in Christ enables you to surrender your ideas of success and trade it in for a more fulfilling and life-changing purpose.

Obeying, acknowledging, and following God is the precursor to this process of developing your imagination, and activating your creative faith to build your castles.

Faith in Christ enables you to believe the impossible.

It all begins with a dream. And dreams are not meant to be small. They are meant to defy, challenge, and ultimately change the world.

Who cares if no one has done it before? So what!

You can do everything God has created you to do, but you just have to determine in your heart to never give up and continue walking with Christ.

Faith in Christ enables you to have hope.

Hope, the expectation of good, propels you forward even through difficult times.

Hope helps you keep your head up.

Hope makes you be unashamed because you know your expectation from God will always be given and fulfilled

“Do not let your heart envy sinners,
    but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.
18 There is surely a future hope for you,
    and your hope will not be cut off.” -Proverbs 23:17-18

Don’t get discouraged.

Your dreams– this beautiful castle of faith, is already in Heaven. But it takes time for your dream, and the faith to build it, to refine, and come to life in the natural. It takes time for your environment, soul, mind, will, emotions, to line up with God’s Word, God’s Plan, and God’s System of doing things.

It is a process, to embrace new horizons, seek, discover, and dream big–but keep doing it.

Keep thinking about these dreams.

Keep building your castles.

Because sooner or later, it will come to pass.

I finish with this:

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”–Romans 15:13

Father, I thank you for showing me the truth. That you have given me these dreams in my heart. I pray I will continue to develop them with you. Increase my focus, and my imagination so I accomplish more than I could have ever through with you. Help me to follow Your Plan and Your Desire for my life. I expect great things because You always keep Your Promises, even the dreams You have given to me in my heart.

 Thank you Lord, in Jesus Christ Name, I pray, 

Amen.

REBUILD: Keep Building Your Castle

“Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”–Psalm 37:4

I had a thought.

A glimpse.

I saw the side tower of a gray, glittering edifice being built under and the glow of the incandescent, warm, powerful, illuminating light of Heaven.

But this beautiful edifice was….unfinished.

And I came to realize that this radiant and magnificent castle was an example of all the faith projects you begin as a child.

Like the time you stayed up all night and imagine yourself singing before an endless sea of people.

Like the time you created a flying car in your mind and flew all over glittering cities and skies before daybreak.

Like the time you outlined a sailing ship in the clouds above you, saying over and over again, in your heart, “One day, I am going to sail all over the world.”

Like the time you discovered the sacred moon in the black sky above you and dreamed you could go to the moon and back with a blink of an eye with your secret machine.

Like the time you danced in your pink tutu, tattered and worn, imagining your beat up tennis shoes, like delicate and deft pointe shoes, grace the best stages all over the world.

Like the time you dreamed you would write stories that would inspire generations to come.

Yes, those are the moments, these are the moments where you built your castle.

A castle of dreams, that come to life in heaven before the LORD as towers, tall and hovering in the radiance of His Majestic Wonder.

Even though you had no idea,

No idea, how you could,

Or how you would,

You just kept speaking those things in your heart,

Kept speaking the dreams that you could not describe

With your lips,

And you kept the faith,

You kept believing,

One way or another,

That it would come to pass.

And it did.

In Heaven.

The moment you began to spend time dreaming, wondering, imagining. You declared things, believed things in your heart concerning yourself and your future. You were creating things in your life without even knowing it!

How is that so?

God says: “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”–Proverbs 23:7

When you think, spend time meditating on thoughts, regardless of what it may be–it shall be.

That is how we were created. God thought of you before you were even created. And God created you to do the same, so that you can make a future for yourself by first thinking it–and eventually profess it to be true.

It begins in the mind and takes root in the heart. You see it inside yourself. And you begin to believe it is true. And then, you will see it everywhere you go.

Jesus sees those God-given dreams and builds it with you and within you. It begins when you, as a child, begin to create this reality in your spirit and soul. Step by step you expand your dreams, till its complete. Then, when the time is right, it finally manifests in the natural world.

But around the age of 10…and earlier for some…that faith starts to waver. You begin to rethink your dreams. Conflict and conflicting messages start to confuse you and pressure you into giving into another person’s dream–a more acceptable, less fantastical illusion that is safe and present.  You even lie to yourself as you grow older, and start to believe that all it was a dream.

And…therefore

These edifices of glory, swathed by promise, and the majesty of Jesus, are still left

Unfinished.

Why do we let go of our faith projects?

Honestly, we forget. Bury. And neglect.

We forget the dreams of childhood and leave it behind, accepting the lie that it was for the best.

“At least I will not be disappointed.”wp-1527522526965..jpg

We bury them, because of some pain from the past, caused by some obstacle, some discouragement, or trauma caused by a family member, a friend, a neighbor, a teacher…a catastrophe, a storm of varying magnitude, whether it be a dissenting voice or harsh hand, may have caused you to stuff the dreams you once had to prevent the pain of those years to rise into your heart.

Then you neglect the dreams in your heart, by refusing to remember, refusing to ever think outside the box, refusing to dream again.

And the ruins left behind are the crushed pieces of the little girl or little boy’s heart.

That clandestine moment in your life when anything and everything is possible is so precious to God. And when it is trampled over, tainted, or shriveled by people and pasts wrongs, it hurts God.

But, your dreams, your castle of faith, can be regained. You can begin building again.

When you ask God to enlarge your heart and expand your capacity to receive the fulfillment of your dreams, you allow His Power to get involved in the restoration of your broken heart and mind and dreams. You give God room to show you the potential of your dreams and your goals.

All you have to do is give Him your heart, and mind to repair and restore. As He restores, your heart and mind will have fresh new ground for you to build upon.

And He will. For it is His Will to resurrect and to complete His Plans in you.

 

REFLECT

Is there something you have stopped believing God for? And what can you do to continue on in faith?

Expectantly building,

Amarachi
