Jesus Touch me by Dione Watt


1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

I love it when I’m in the company of people that can uplift you, motivate you, and challenge you to become a much better YOU and not them or someone else.

I therefore have the honor of meeting one such person yesterday, and spent a life-changing evening with her and my best friend Trudy Ross.

Mrs Debbie Miller-Curtis, thank you so much for your passion, diligence, and obedience to our Lord, for I am a life that is changed as a result.

You are the perfect example of what a Christian should be.

Like the prophet Elisha who served under the prophet Elijah, I will never leave your side until I can inherit your mantle, so I imagine I will be making way too many trips to Jersey.

It is not luck, It is God’s favor


Father, I just want to take the time to say thank you for favor in every area of my life.  Today Father, we celebrate over 13985 viewers to Prayer Works Evangelism Outreach Ministries blog page over 130 countries.

Lord that is totally your doing.  I am grateful and humbled.

Team please help me say thank you to the Lord.

Proverbs 3

1My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;bind them around your neck,write them on the tablet of your heart.4Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 7Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. 8This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. 9Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;10then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. 11My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, 12because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. 13Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, 14for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. 15She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. 16Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. 17Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. 18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. 19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; 20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. 21My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; 22they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. 23Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. 24When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 25Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, 26for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared. 27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. 28Do not say to your  neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it  with you. 29Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you. 30Do not accuse anyone for no reason— when they have done you no harm.31Do not envy the violent or choose any of their ways. 32For the Lord detests the perverse but takes the upright into his confidence. 33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous. 34He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed. 35The wise inherit honor, but fools get only shame.

God is an on time God by Viris Hart


Good afternoon friends. I would like to tell you how God has been faithful to me over the past couple years!!! and very recently I was burdened about whether to let my house go or what exactly to do. In my mind I prayed and said Lord I have decided and have come to terms with letting the house go if that’s what you want me to do otherwise help me find a tenant. I had all my friends helping me to pray as well including Prayer Works.

Some people told me to walk away and get rid of the stress!!! so have been talking with the mortgage company. We worked out a payment arrangement and I did not consummate the agreement …I though for sure its over now but a mail came from the Mortgage company and I called them and they worked another arrangement. I had 30 days to make the payment. I had 2/3 and needed the other 1/3 I had no idea where I was gonna get it but I knew in my heart I was not going to ask anyone to help me. I became tired of asking for help. I was really depending on my tax returns. Well a few days later I found out that the IRS was auditing me. :( A couple of days before the deadline to make the payment I woke up had my devotion and went online to check my bank. My eyes almost popped out of my head there was so much money in my account I almost fainted. The IRS had put a portion of my returns ……the exact amount that I needed to make the payment and the extras I needed to mail it off!!! hallelujah!!!! Thank you Lord!!

Now I really started praying m ore fervently because I had a deadline in which to get the person. Many persons came and loved the place but did not come back. On the final day the agent called and told me she had a family. They looked at the house and told her they wanted to move in 5 days……..they moved in last Saturday and praise God…everything is on track…the arrangement has been accepted. Truly our God is an on time God!!! He was right on time here and I have learnt that I REALLY need to just trust him even if in my natural state of mind I cant see anything happening. He truly is working behind the scenes…….I also found out that my tenant had just lost her home in a foreclosure……..and that is the person he chose to help me to save mine…..how awesome is that!!!!!!

I also had asked for prayer for a new job….that has not materialized yet BUT I have gotten many clients since for my Insurance business. I was able to reinstate my license and now I really want to focus on my Insurance which would give me a lot more time to focus on other things….so please help me pray in this direction. I believe that this is where I should be……
God I love you!! Thank you for loving me, saving me, protecting me, caring for me, blessing me, providing for me, covering me everyday…you are AWESOME!!!

Transformation by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


God wants you to know on this day that when He is building his glory inside us it is not necessarily, what we would expect with our natural minds! We start to think about how He works to develop that power within and we may immediately picture ourselves laid out prostrate.  Laboring long hours in prayer and intercession or going on 40 day fasts or to spiritual retreats and all that stuff that certainly does help with the process, but actually the reality I am learning is a lot less deep, because it is already done.

Transformed, Finished WorkGod’s Finished Work

Being human we tend to want to justify our works by looking at what we do as a way to judge what God is doing deep on the inside of us! Now, please do not misunderstand me.  God does lead us to do things for his glory and the things mentioned above like prayer, intercession and fasting do edify us and are very advantageous to our walk with the Lord but there is still a work going on deep down within our spirit man that has nothing to do with anything that we could contribute. This is the work of our savior Jesus Christ on the cross and our now divine exchange! (2 Pet 1:3)

It often feels like nothing is happening when we are going about our lives, doing the standard normal stuff that needs to be done, daily. We are perusing the will of God, going to work and to church as usual, somehow we fit in everything else that needs to be done and we could be forgiven for thinking that because we are not feeding the 5000, raising the dead or parting the red sea that nothing major is really happening! (Rom 2:10) But God wants you to know that YOU ARE WRONG!

The real exchange of God’s glory being given to us happened when (Jesus) willingly gave his life on our behalf on the cross! However, over time our Father is able to build up that same glory inside us.  With every conversation, every vexation, every situation or problem at work, every family dilemma, every financial problem or issue, every test of integrity at church or at home, every monthly pay check, every prayer, every choice and every divine exchange, every test and trial, situation and circumstance to name but a few. He uses everything in our lives to help cultivate and develop the process of steadily building the glory of Christ deep down within our spirit. (Rom 11:36)

There is nothing that God does not and cannot use to help build us, even our dreams and visions and the inner revelations we receive serve as an expression or an outlet for what God is up to when all we are doing is perusing his will and going about our normal day to day routines. The word of God say’s “Don’t judge anything before the APPOINTED time” (1 Cor 4:5) because while you are in PROCESS you will not be able to see what is really going on because it looks like nothing is changing. (Rom 8:28)

When a butterfly is in the cocoon you cannot see what is taking place but when it is RELEASED, you cannot miss the TRANSFORMATION, it is clear for all to see what was happening in the hidden season and it’s a vision of BEAUTY.

Be encouraged that God is at work behind the scenes in our spirits as we speak regardless of what you perceive because of what Christ has already done! When you can’t see it praise him anyway because when your time comes you will be a sight to behold and truly UNRECOGNISABLE, Shalom!

 

You are Qualified through Trails and testing…Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Everyone wants to receive the BREAKTHROUGH, FAVOUR, SUPERNATURAL PROVISION and MIRACLES SIGNS & WONDERS but start talking about the SUFFERING in proportion to the blessings of God in your walk with the Lord and suddenly we have all developed SELECTIVE HEARING!

Rigorous Training

Jesus wants you to go back to the WORD today and really look at the lives of any of his servants that did great works on the earth. Where there are abundant blessings there is also suffering of some kind to go with it. Suffering QUALIFIES YOU, it conditions your heart and firmly fixes the agenda of God into your spirit so you are deemed worthy to walk in the greatness of your calling.

There is something unique about the hardships and trials and the tests that suffering will bring that can teach you more about yourself than any other situation you will ever experience. When we are not saved and we suffer needlessly for Satan’s agenda we look at it from the perspective of life being unfair or we resign our plight to Karma or fate!

When we come to Christ and we suffer just as much if not more we start to complain and get dismayed by the REAL WALK WITH GOD, thinking that God doesn’t love us or start doubting our whole walk altogether. James the apostle said “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Suffering is the NORM!

If Jesus suffered so shall we but instead of complaining REJOICE (Rom 5:3-5) because you have become worthy to take on the sufferings of Christ! It is an honor to be the furnace of affliction (Isa 48:10) because it is there that God’s glory can truly be revealed and you are being tested as GOLD! (1Pet 1:7)

Walk as a Child of God by Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Isaiah 57:1-2 (KJV)

The righteous perishes,
And no man takes it to heart;
Merciful men are taken away,
While no one considers
That the righteous is taken away from evil.
He shall enter into peace;
They shall rest in their beds,
Each one walking in his uprightness.

Walk as a Child of God

You may have noticed that the father is being a lot stricter with you and that is because He wants you to understand that in this hour it is very important that your WORDS match up with your ACTIONS in validation of your FAITH!

We are in the END -TIMES where people are in flat out rebellion and willfully do not want to serve the Lord! Music, T.V. Films and the media in general are all working in opposition to the word of God and his commands, which has shaped a generation that is inevitably, being groomed to serve in the ANTICHRIST system.

We all have family members and friends who are resistant to hearing the word or being saved and though we pray and try to drop a word here and there, they just like us will have to make a choice whether or not to follow the Lord sooner or later. I say all of that to say this, our lives and the words we speak and our actions in many cases may be the closest thing that some people will ever get to the BIBLE.

We are a walking epistle!

People who cannot receive Christ for whatever reason are watching the things we do and they are weighing up their options to see if they could walk the walk and believe like us. We must more than anything start to practice what we PREACH and if we are not be honest about it by being transparent rather than unintentionally leading anyone astray or into discouragement!

The word of God say is that troubles and tests will surely come but we must not let them become an obstacle for ourselves or anyone else around us. Your consistency in following the word of God over the doctrines of the world is like a banner over your life for all to see.

The REMNANT of God is the ones who preach from the gospel and apply it to their lives, living the word, breathing the word, dreaming the word! No one is perfect and trust me we all fall short but we have to constantly be aware of how we live and what we do.

Sometimes, you not partaking in certain things speak more than just telling people what is right and wrong.  We need to be men and women of the WORD of God everyday so our whole lives becomes a tool to evangelize our unsaved family members, friends, work colleagues and brothers and sisters in the ministry who need to see a good example.

God is separating the wheat from the chaff; you are now being able to see, who the REMNANT is as opposed to the ones who follow the worldly church system. The Lord says my sons are the ones who are led by my spirit and my friends are the ones who do as I say!

 

The Ultimate Test of Waiting by Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Psalm 27:14 “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage , and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait , I say, on the LORD.”

Persevere while waiting on God...It is a test!!!

Persevere while waiting on God…It is a test!!!

Hey friend, one of the hardest things you will have to do for God is to WAIT! You may be surprised to hear that but waiting is a test of every piece of scripture within you.

Every bit of the word that you think you understand and the practical expression of how you translate that into the way you live your life while you are waiting! The word of God says that those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength!

Strength, is often built-in hardships, adversities, challenges, and the inevitable tests which come with being a child of God. God wants to know if you will still praise him when you cannot see anything! Will you still demonstrate the fruits of the spirit when you know your blessing is delayed!

Can He still trust you to be faithful over the little that He has already given you when you have no idea of when you are going to get the breakthrough?

Is it more about what you want him to do for you or is your heart his regardless?

There are many of God’s children who have been promised some MAJOR BLESSINGS but due to the size of it God held it up to make sure that your hearts were still clean and you really love him for who He is as opposed to what He can provide!

Your character, integrity, humility and motives have all been put through the furnace of affliction while you were being stretched to receive what God has promised you. There are times when you have even said to God that you no longer care as long as He remains in your life you will serve him anyway!

So I want to say to you this evening that you have passed your test, the door is open and it will soon be time for you to go, don’t get complacent at this juncture.

Expect the UNEXPECTED & STAND! THIS IS YOUR TIME!
