Let’s Get Messy!

Episode 101

Enjoy this Replay of Episode 90 ~ A Top Pick from Listeners!

Maybe you think about a mess as a Tough Mudder Obstacle Course, a pie eating contest, finger painting, or getting caught in the rain? Today, I am talking about a different kind of mess — I am using the word mess to describe when the things of God are out of our understanding or our control and appear to be messy. Let’s take a look at Scripture from Proverbs 14:4 in the Passion Translation:

“The only clean stable is an empty stable. So if you want the work of an ox and to enjoy an abundant harvest, you’ll have a mess or two to clean up!” Proverbs 14:4 TPT

What this is really saying is as we grow in relationship with God our experiences with Him can appear to be messy. The reason for this appearing to be messy is because we are seeing in part and not from the fullness of God’s perspective. It may sound strange, but there is a messiness in being open to the Holy Spirit. This appearance of messiness occurs because we only have glimpses of what God is wanting to do through us and for us so it appears to be a mess. But to God, it is beautifully and perfectly orchestrated. Read the Blog or Listen to the Podcast to find out more!

Sudden Expansion Podcast

Welcome to the 100th Episode of Unleashing the Champion within!

Thank you so much for journeying with me.

Today I am writing my blog as I return home from the Deborahs meeting in Washington, DC. This was a gathering of mighty Generals for this season. The mandate is to equip, testify and empower the Deborahs of the world.

Never before have I participated in such an assembly. Governmental, royalty, business and ministry generals all shared the mighty move of God in their respective countries and roles. I was encouraged and impassioned. 

The common theme in every woman’s message was God is God, and He is moving across the world.

Yes, there is evil rising, but it cannot and will not ever supersede God’s miraculous move in the hearts of His people. And it is the people that make nations.

One of the speakers gave us 3 concepts that need to be understood. We must…

  1. Know Who We Are
  2. Know our Enemy
  3. Know the Voice of our Commander

Sunday Sermon

David got focused on fleeing, on where do I run next? No longer believing what God promised.

We forget what God has promised us, and the victory of how He has gotten us this far. We forget the move of God that is really running interference on what the enemy is trying to do to us.

Living in Your Sweet Spot

Episode 99

As I am writing this, I am watching the 2019 Women’s Tennis Finals at Wimbledon in England. Wimbledon is one of the five grand slam tournaments where only the most elite athletes are able to compete.

The two players, Serena Williams and Simone Halep have prepared every day to compete at this level. They have spent years training their bodies, with hours of practice, proper nutrition and working with coaches so this day could become a reality.

They are living in what I would call their sweet-spot.

What is a sweet-spot?

Declarations

Many years ago, I came across this Scripture in Job 22:28, “You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you;
And the light [of God’s favor] will shine upon your ways.”

Since that time, I love declaring the Word of God.

For when we declare the Word, several things happen.

1. When the Word of God is declared it requires a response, an answer. Isaiah 55:11 AMP says that when the Word of God is released, it accomplishes what was intended from the Word —

“It will not return to Me void (useless, without result) without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”

2. The Word we declare becomes fixed in our life. It is established for us to live from.

3. The declared Word becomes our Light — Jesus! Jesus is the Word and Jesus is the Light of the World.

4. The declared Word becomes the path that opens the doors for you to step into and closes doors that are not for you. The Word brings clarity, discernment, and power as it responds to your declaration!

Why do I share this with you? Because I want the power of declaring the WORD to be in your hands. Here is how to do it.
