ONE OF THOSE DAYS #2


A lovely lady from church and I are studying together - today is our usual day - last night we e-mailed and her roof was leaking - the roofers were coming today. I was sad we couldn't meet but grateful they could come this soon...
God going in the kitchen but found a wonderful e-mail with suggested verses to pray regarding the next election - I was praying and the Lord laid something on my heart i wanted to share with the sister who had send me the verses... was in here typing away and the power went out (mind you, I had two timers set for two different things I was cooking - the time was erased on one and the other was way past time when I figured it all out.
Lights came back on and I finished writing Carol... and my delicious lentil noodles were falling apart over cooked (and went into my casserole anyhow...) and wasn't sure it the almonds in the over were truly toasted. Got the nuts out - cooled them and was putting them in rubbermaid containers when I notices "nut debris" on the black, glass stovetop - you know how you automatically wipe things with your hand? Well my left palm then got burned on the burner where I had over cooked the noodles - I ran to the sink and turned on the cold, well water and left my hand there - pretty soon I went to the bathroom and got wonderful aloe vera all over the hand (I am a former burn unit RN - the palm hadn't blistered then but I expected it would...)
Now, what to do - I had prayed for the lord to heal my hand - but was also in the middle of cooking - I could see what the juice for the lemon chicken would do to my hand and what the aloe would do to dinner.... So I found a disposable glove that seemed to cover the bases and did some typing... Then managed to squeeze the lemons and get the chicken going.
Decided to share this with you....at times like this, I have learned to know the enemy has temper tantrums... when he is fighting this hard (or trying this much to distract) that God is doing something neat and I am probably doing something good or the enemy wouldn't be acting up so much... I think the scriptures Carol sent and praying for our upcoming election are very important and that might have started it all - I also think the time Linnea and I have been spending together not only blesses us but it touched God's heart.
I am just now looking at my left palm - which was very red and appeared like one of those burns which would develop blisters and be a mess for a number of days. It is a pale color and looks just like the right (unaffected) palm!! It no longer hurts and there is not one sign of the burn I suffered only a couple hours ago.. Praising Him who is, indeed, ABLE!!!

Longing for Home



I quicken
At the beckoning of the wind
Gently, through jade leaves
It stirs a longing, yearning desire
Deep within my soul
To cross the eternal river
And go home to My Father....
Yes, now, Lord Jesus, even now.

But have they ever Paid the price?

Praying In The Spirit-Power Channel For Effective And Fruitful Prayer Life

Praying In The Spirit-Power Channel For Effective And Fruitful Prayer Life
Are you baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with tongues? Praying in the Spirit or speaking with tongues is God’s wisdom for empowering our prayer lives and ensuring that we pray in line with the will of God, thereby securing the Lord’s intervention and blessings. It is a weapon that the enemy can neither understand nor interfere with. This post encourages you to pray more in the Spirit.
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God – Romans 8:26-27 (NKJV).
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit – Jude 1:20 (NKJV).
Praying in the Holy Spirit is very important for a powerful Christian living. It helps you to pray aright through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps you to pray very well when you pray with tongues. He helps you to pray the way and for the things you ought to. He intercedes for us with groaning which cannot be explained, He goes deep into the root of a matter to pray about it. The Spirit of God prays directly to the Father according to His will and so the Father hears Him expressly.
What happens when you pray in tongues?
  • When you pray in the Spirit, you move from the earthly realm to the spiritual realm where the enemy cannot interfere with what you are saying, since he can’t understand it.
  • You are empowered spiritually, because God praying through you will rub off on you His nature. It is just as when you stay a while where there is smoke; you end up smelling of that smoke, the smoke rubs off on you. God’s nature rubs off on you the more, as you spend time praying in the Holy Ghost. You will love and do great works like He does.
  • The day, things, situations work out according to the Lord’s plan since the Spirit of God has prayed about them through you. This is why it is advisable to spend some time praying with tongues to thoroughly take care of issues unknown to you before stepping out or making major decisions.
  • You build up your faith in God (Jude 1:20) and in His words. You will discover that you effortlessly believe God’s word and that you truly expect the word of God to be fulfilled in your life as it is written in the scriptures.
  • You become more sensitive to the voice and leading of the Father. When you pray in the Spirit long enough you will get to a point where you are absolutely quiet within you and you can hear the still small voice of God speaking to you.
  • Your wisdom and understanding of the scriptures are sharpened. As the Holy Spirit is praying the mind of the Lord through you, your mind is equally sharpened. You tend to reason like God and understand things explicitly, including the scriptures.

Therefore, take a decision to spend some time praying with tongues because it makes a great difference in what comes your way in life and how you respond to issues. The longer you pray the better your testimonies. However, you must pray in the Spirit believing that the Holy Spirit is praying through you according to the will of the Lord and that it shall be as He had prayed.
If you are born again and not baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with tongues, ask Jesus to baptize you with Him, for Christ is the baptizer and He will. However, you may choose to go to your Pastor who will minister the baptism of the Holy Spirit to you. But, know that only Jesus can baptize you with the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11). Baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers you to do exploit for God. Paul is a good example of someone who enjoyed the power of speaking with tongues.
Paul the apostle prayed in the Spirit more than the rest (1 Corinthians 14:18), no wonder he was so powerful, did great signs and wonders, had great revelations from Jesus and achieved a lot for Christ. He covered so many territories for Christ and wrote about two-third of the New Testament. Praying in the Spirit is a blessing, therefore key into it and derive all the blessings within it for you.
Jesus is Lord!
