Are you a sheep who knows our Shepherd’s voice?

IMG_3715

Recently I heard a message from Priscilla Shirer a Pastor here from Dallas, TX, USA. And she nailed this message about knowing God’s voice. She thoroughly educated us about sheep and their Shepherd and how the the good shepherds would study and spend a lot of time getting to know their 100 sheep!!! They would KNOW them and could tell them apart from other sheep, how awesome is that?! Several shepherds would place their sheep in the same “holding station/ pen station” while they would possibly go in to town to rest. A gatekeeper would stay and literally be the gate and lay down blocking the entrance and exit while waiting for the shepherds to return for their sheep. Upon the shepherd’s return he would call out for his sheep, AND JUST THEIR SHEEP would come, because they knew their shepherd’s voice! It becomes even more amazing, a shepherd could alter their voice and call just one sheep out of the one hundred and that one particular sheep would come!

This amazed me because had I not been educated on sheep, I’m not sure I could relate as much as I am relating and enjoying the scripture, “I am the Good Shepherd I know my own and my own know Me.” John 10:14. With the World’s situation and as many voices that are being spoken from so many different platforms it’s good to know our Shepherd’s voice. Actually let me back up, I had  a guy once tell me that “He would believe in God if God would speak to him but God isn’t speaking!” The truth is – God is speaking and either we are listening, or we aren’t listening or we are hearing His voice and taking credit for what He is saying”.

So agreed, God is speaking! We need to be those who spend time with our Shepherd getting to know Him, listening to His voice and actually obeying it and following only Him. The God of this universe is speaking to you and wants you to actually listen. God speaks to deaf people. They may not can hear a physical sound from the Earth or our mouths but God speaks directly to our hearts, His voice comes from within and from without. The Bible says in Matt 24:4,5,11

There’s a guy in Miami right now claiming to be the Messiah and he has many followers! You can’t be deceived if you know Our Shepherd’s voice!

“The change in time has not changed the Shepherd’s desire to get to know us, but if we are not careful the change in time will change our desire to get to know Him” – Priscilla Shirer

When a world has decided that they have no need of God, We The Church will take a stand and say ALL WE NEED IS GOD! We will get to know our Shepherd’s ways, thoughts, and His voice. We will not be deceived because we know His voice. And guess what the Shepherd knows us too. We are not a stranger to Him. He knows us and we know Him. Hallelujah we know our Shepherd’s voice and He leads us gracefully! He speaks, we hear, He leads, we follow, He is the Shepherd, we are the sheep, He knows us and we know Him. What a God we have?!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me. I choose you to be my Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

My view of who God is so limited. I want to know God the way Christ knew God!

IMG_3435

I have been seeing that some believers and unbelievers through conversation with them that they have boxed in their view of God. Meaning the way they view God is how they have heard of Him or experienced Him. But this is such a limited view. I personally don’t remember of being healed of any disease but God is still the healer. I’ve been telling myself I truly want to believe in the God of this universe.

When the Bible says He is my provider I want to believe beyond any doubt. He is our King, Lord, Father, Creator, and so much more. He is I AM. And I haven’t even heard of everything that He is, let alone truly have I believe! He is the All in all. I truly want to believe this. I don’t want to just say it with my mouth, I want to believe. Well I’ve been sharing this with close friends and I came across this scripture today: Matt 11:6 “And blessed is He who is not stumbled because of Me”

Wow Jesus did a lot of things contrary to people’s belief of Him. He turned over tables in a temple (thats a little wild) but some wouldn’t dare call Jesus’ actions wild. He healed a man on the sabbath and the Pharisees were stumbled because of this. But we have to truly know Christ bc what if He does something contrary to our boxed view of Him. I’ve been telling people I want to take my limitations of God off of Him. He is not limited by my view, my circumstances, my resources, or me period.

Jesus said “blessed is he who is not stumbled because of Me” capital M in Me which means not stumbled by Christ. May we all take our boxed view off of Christ and truly see Him for who He reveals to us He is. This has been my experience lately seeing Him for who He reveals himself to me and it is so BEAUTIFUL. My experience and view has been heighten and enlightened.

There’s this singer Steffany Gritzell who was singing spontaneously and she had begun to sing:

There’s a line and I’ve crossed it,

some will say that I lost it,
But who cares what the World thinks,
I’ve found my joy”

I’ve definitely crossed “the norm” line and I’ve found such a fantastic, wonderful, fulfilling joy in Christ and I WILL NEVER be the same AGAIN. I want that Paul faith, that Peter Faith and Abraham Faith. I want to truly believe regardless of how unpractical it may seem. I just want Christ! YES the Lord is practical but some things according to my view is unpractical in my eyes. But He is God and He isn’t limited by my view of Him. He will still be God and be the One fills all in all regardless if I believe, regardless if I limit my view of Him; However I have made a choice to not limit my view of Him anymore. God is the I AM. I want to experience the I AM. Lord reveal to us who you are?!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me. I choose you to be my Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Dear Church! Let’s have True Oneness- This is God’s desire!

IMG_3416

Dear Church,

What would happened if we had true Oneness and met with each other in Truth and in Spirit. We are in One Body, having One faith, One baptism, One Father, One calling, One Hope, One God. Surely we at least have this in common. Let’s meet on this ground! Let’s fellowship according to this.

Let’s grow in our faith together, separately locally, but together in One body. With man this is impossible but with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. I believe we can have a Oneness that puts the enemy to shame.

I DONT CARE what local Church you meet with, WE HAVE THE same Father, same Spirit, so let’s enjoy Christ together as life putting our differences aside and love the Lord and others together! You may have arrived at a different level of knowledge of Christ, so keep that to you until the Lord says I’m ready for it. But what do we commonly know about Christ together- Let’s fellowship on that ground! No more divisions. No more arguments.

Let’s just pray for one another. We can do this my brothers and sisters! WE MUST DO THIS my Brothers and Sister- this is God’s desire that we WOULD BE ONE as God the Father and Jesus the Son is One we too must be one. We can do this Church! Let’s do this.

Lord keep us One in YOU! Only In You can we be truly ONE! #TheChurch aka #BodyOfChrist aka #BelieversOfChrist #WeAreOneInSpirit #LetsGrowInOneFaith ❤️

Morning Devo- Have you experienced God as your Father? #RIPUnclePhil ❤️

IMG_2794

Growing up in the USA is different. Did you know it’s still a foreign idea to be raised in a single parent home?

That was the norm to me, most of my friends grew up in a single parent home, with either their Mom/Dad/Grandmom/Big Sibling being the primary or only care giver. It’s a different world that you experience when being raised in a single parent home.

A few things that I’ve notice is that mostly men teach by doing and letting their child experience life by being adventures and exploring on their own. Woman (for the most part) give ALOT of warnings and explanations to why they give warnings. “Don’t touch that because it’s hot and it will burn you,” a mom might say to a child who has a desire to a touch  a stove top. A father might just watch his child touch it and wait for their reaction. A lot of men and women teach differently.

Well my Dad taught by leading by example. My Dad to my knowledge and what I saw is that he did his very best to lead me in the right direction. I grew up in a very diverse neighborhood in Irving, Texas, USA. I mean it’s a huge melting pot here so many different nationalities it’s such a beautiful thing to witness and experience so many cultures in one city! I was not taught anything negative about a different person because of their belief or skin color by my Dad. #Awesome

img_2795.png

I watched my Dad make friends with anyone he came into contact with. My Dad does NOT meet strangers and that’s one of the many things I love about him. Growing up in our home, I never went hungry, I always had clothes, shoes on my feet, and food on the table. My Dad gave me exactly what I needed when it came to shelter and material things. Despite me being ungrateful and crazy disrespectful (I was definitely worse than the prodigal son but thank the Lord for His blood) growing up my Dad never abandoned me.

When I offered my life to the Lord for the second time at the age of 21 it was easy for me to see God as a Father-figure because that’s something I did not lack growing up. Because I actually had a great Dad, it made it easier to know that God, “would never leave me nor forsake me” like His word says in Hebrews 13:5.

When the Bible says,  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”  – Matt 6:25 I trust the Lord enough to not worry and plus a witness of God in the Bible states that “I have never seen the righteous of his children begging for bread” – Psalm 37:25

It was easy for me to trust the Lord in a lot of areas of my life because my Dad showed me a father’s love in a superb way. So if God is Father of my father (My Dad is a believer too) wouldn’t He do exceedingly, above anything that we could ever imagine?- Ephesians 3:20

Now maybe you didn’t grow up the way I did. Maybe you had a lot of suffering or little suffering. Maybe you didn’t have a Dad growing up so you don’t know what a good Dad looks like. You can have a good Dad today (sorry my Dad is taken and I’m not sharing lol) But God our Father has his arms wide open ready to start or rekindle His relationship with you. He is waiting for you. He wants you to be His. He wants you to call Him Daddy, Father, and ABBA!

God is not like a human, His words are truth and He is 100 percent faithful. He never breaks His promises. This is my experience! 7 years saved and the Lord has never left me and BELIEVE ME I’m not perfect. No demon in hell can separate you from our Father’s love! Romans 8:38-39

I hope and pray that you open yourself to God and experience His magnificent love in an extraordinary way.

Thank you for taking time to read my blog.

How have you experienced God as your Father?
