God’s Valentine to you: God’s wisdom will prosper you

God's valentine

Acts 2:17-18: “And in the last days it shall be, God declares that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh, and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my spirit and they shall prophesy.”

I love Joyce Meyer because she is not your typical preacher. She reminds everyone every day that God opened the doors for her to become successful. She says in her message series, I Want, I Think, I Feel, if she had tried to do it on her own, she would have messed it up.

Meyer reminds me whatever I am believing God for, as long as I trust in Him He’ll make it come to pass.

Some people think asking God for a prosperous and blessed life is selfishness. I argue it’s asking God for more responsibilities. Jesse Dupantis calls it growth.

God wants you to have the desires of your heart. He gave them to you for the sole reason of glorifying Him.

Examine what God says to David in 2 Samuel 12:7-8: “I anointed you king over Israel and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. I gave you your master’s house to you  . . . and if all of this had been too little I would have given you more.”

Reading this, one has to wonder if God was willing to give David more before David had stepped out of faith after already having done so much, what will He do in my life if I stay in the faith?

Now I don’t come to these conclusions spending my days watching Ben and Kate. I fill myself with wisdom by studying the bible, praying, and fasting. The more time spent in the Word, the more God tells me what He is going to do for me.  Then He tells me how I am going to glorify His kingdom.  All I have to do is sit back and praise Him.  

I fill myself up with Wisdom so I can prophesize on my life, friends, and family.  God said in Acts 2:17-18, we will have visions and dreams. He shall pour out His spirit upon us, and we will speak what He has given us, so that by our words and our faith He will bring the desires of our heart to pass.

God wants us wealthy, filled with joy, and prosperous all at the same time. If you don’t believe it, try blessing someone with an empty bank account while you’re sick and unhappy. I’ve seen people do it. I’ve done it. You have to bless people where you at for God to move in your midst, but just think what could happen if you were whole and your cup overflowed?

Your testimony will move somebody. Somebody is going to read this right now and think, all I have to do is hold on, God is going to bless me.

That’s why I wrote this. God made a difference in my life. He is going to make a difference in somebody else’s. I might have wrote this for one person, I don’t know. I’m just glad to do the work of God.

You get glad and get ready.

God’s Valentine to you: Step out on faith

God's valentine

Proverb 28:27: “He who gives to the poor will lack nothing.”

I enjoy tithing. Why? Because I truly believe God will do what He says He will do.  When I read Mark 4:20, “Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop –thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times what is sown,” I know every time I plant a seed God is going to grow me a forest.

Now as a fantasy romance author, you should already know I am a big dreamer. I give my characters big things, and I expect God to give me even bigger things. It took me about twenty years to realize if I want God to move miraculously in my life, then I need to step out on faith and move miraculously in others.

So I find myself searching to bless others as if I am superman, hungry to love like Christ loves.

In mid-January, God told me to find people at local bus stops in Northeast Florida, ask Him who I should bless, and just give them money. How awesome is that? I do it because let’s get real. I’m not trying to be the one surviving in this world till my eternal bed is made. I’m ready for the fullness of Christ, and I’m trying to receive it today. Jesse Duplantis, a southern preacher who lives by the words of Mark 11:24, “Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe you have received it, and it will be yours,” preached at Faith Christian Center one day. He preached on God blessing him abundantly and beyond, speaking on what I am blogging about right now.  At the time I heard his message, I was fed up with my mediocre relationship with God. Now me being the demanding person I am, I was demanding more. 

Whenever I read the Bible, I don’t think, ‘Oh this is a nice story.’ I think, ‘God, why aren’t you doing this for me?’ or ‘I want that’, or ‘God, you said you’d do this. I’m waiting.’ So when Duplantis finally told me the key, I instantly became good soil and soaked up his message.  

Now tithing means several things to me. Many preach solely on giving money to our respective churches. This is true, but many of the people who need help are outside of the church. That is why it is important for me to ask God daily, how can I go beyond just giving money to church? How can I do your will.

God might say something as small as, give your neighbor a bright smile every morning.   

Then get ready.  Your relationship with God will become a marriage.  Then you’ll have a right to make a list filled with the desires of your heart because Proverbs 25:28 says, “He who trusts in the Lord will prosper”, and Psalm 37:4-6 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of you heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this; He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the Justice of your cause like the noonday.”
