NIGHTMARES

Nightmares


I was having nightmares and the Lord took me through a process. I was reminded of how Jesus faced temptation by the enemy and how he deals with it. He always used the Word of the Lord to make the enemy stop. “It is written….”
Matthew 4:7

Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the LORD your God.’”
Matthew 4:6-8 (in Context) Matthew 4 (Whole Chapter) NKJV
Matthew 4:10
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”

I used the above idea out loud in prayer before quoting some scriptures before bedtime. NKJV
Philippians 4:7
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. NKJV

Philippians 2:5
[ The Humbled and Exalted Christ ] Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. NKJV

I prayed that the mind of Christ was in me, whether awake or asleep, and that He was guarding my mind and basically told the enemy he had no right to be there – some other scriptures I quoted were:
Romans 8:1
[ Free from Indwelling Sin ] There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. NKJV

2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind

Lastly, I prayed the scripture below and reaffirmed that the mind of Christ was in me and the enemy had no place and I was trusting Jesus to do the rest. NKJV
Philippians 4:8
[ Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. NKJV

I was dreaming about people I had wronged before coming to the Lord. I had asked forgiveness, or in some cases was no longer able to contact with the person. The enemy was beating me over the head with condemnation and I would wake up feeling totally condemned. After praying the above, if I had a dream I would wake up and pray for the salvation of those I had nightmares about. It all stopped really quickly.
Pray about this and see what the Lord opens up for you.
Lord Jesus, I pray that you would be with my sister/brother in a most mighty way. That you would give her/him peace and sweet dreams. We bind the enemy in the most mighty name of Jesus and by the blood shed for us at Calvary. Your mind is in us, while we are awake and asleep. Lord we love you. Please set us free from the torment of the enemy.
Psalm 4:8
I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety... NKJV

7-22-17 Word from the Lord


Would I AM not talk if you would quiet yourself into that “still, small voice” place and listen? I AM here, I AM loving you through it all… I AM not needing any appointment except your focus on your Savior and taking note (notes). You see my hand in the sun’s rising and setting, in the rainbows of promise, you capture my heart for you in your camera’s eye… When you are STILL, you capture My heart for you in my eyes… I AM meaning to encourage you and let you know just how close I AM – always. I AM will fill you to overflowing – more to share more to flow through you to your friends and loved ones – more to give and give out to those in need or a reassurance of my presence and my eternal love for them.

Nothing chases the enemy like my heart for you, daughter delight and when you praise I AM – the enemy cannot stay – he must flee by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. Lift your arms in surrender, praise and faith – (picture a toddler in the “up daddy” position) Reach out and up to grasp my hand held out to you. Never doubt – I AM there. I AM ready. I AM willing. I AM present to lift you up into my everlasting arms and out of those snares the enemy has set. I AM there lifting you up to my peaceful place. I AM present to love you into and under the shadow of My wings…

I AM Savior – YOUR savior and deliverer. Really, I AM.

SEASON of AUTUMN



Season of Autumn
Our leaves on the aspen have been hinting about changing for 2 weeks now (yes, it is only August) Yesterday I noticed some have really changed. Not sure what is up with this as we had winter, one DAY of spring and then went into summer. Colorado Springs is breaking high temperature records. Now the promise of early fall? NOT more of that white stuff, I simply am not ready.
God is whispering through this all to my heart:
Child, it is coming autumn, a season of apparent dying without but a time of fortification/strengthening within.

It is a beautiful season for roots to go deep, even into the Rock and it is not impossible.

It is not a season of blooms, blossoms or fruit. But without the autumn preparation there would be no resurrection or bursting forth season.

Rest and allow Jesus to deepen your roots, yield.

Be not frenzied, nor dismayed.

Absorb the crisp air, delight in the color and relax in Your Lord. He is able.

Stretch your roots and He will bring forth the increase. Fear not.

You stay put and grow in Him. It is a season of quiet depth and internal growth, a season of strengthening. Selah.


And to think the columbines I ordered for fall planting and the new iris rhizomes haven’t come yet. Hope they get here in time to establish roots before that first snowfall!
