The Weight of the Battle!

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.  Romans 8:14 




Something has shifted!  Did you feel it?  

Yesterday, I woke up and had an intense urge to intercede, not only for us and what God is about to do, but for many others who are so very close to their breakthroughs.  


I am feeling the spiritual atmosphere, the weight of the battle in the spirit.  I have a strong sense that God is about to do some pretty amazing miracles and the enemy is doing all he can to discourage, to solicit fear and to get people to walk away - give up just before breakthrough comes!   I am grieving for those who already have walked away.  There are some BIG giants up ahead, but God gives us everything we need for Victory!  If we look at the giants, we will be like those who didn't get to enter their Promised Land.  We must be courageous and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus!    


But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. 2 Corinthians 2:14 

This was posted earlier today on Facebook and it is so right on where many are.  



“You’re Standing at the Edge of Your Jordan Right Now!”
By Lonnie Mackley Apr. 7th, 2018
For many of us who have been in the Wilderness for a long time, we nowsense that we are at the end of it and we are standing right at the edge of entering our promised land ministry life. We are at a place where we are tired, weary, and really not up for anything beyond God's miracles to restore us. I want to encourage you today, that just like Jesus waited for Lazarus to be really dead before the miracle of resurrection came, God has allowed your life to become good and stinking dead before He resurrects you with new life, new strength, new provision, new vision, new power, new hope, and new giftings to help the many people he wants to help.

God knows you are eager to run across your spiritual Jordan River right now and that you feel like you cannot take even one more day of the Wilderness, but He wants you good and dead before He performs His string of miracles to resurrect you. Partly because you need to be stable and purified to stand during His times of blessing; and also because He wants you and others to see that your restoration was a complete miracle and work of His hands, and not of human hands. This is a time to finish whatever needs to be finished and to be listening for His voice to speak new words into your heart. You will soon be given the order to cross over.
ISA 40:29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
In my last blog, I wrote that we would be taking a trip to "scout the land".  This is coming up quickly.  We are excited and a little nervous.   We have been looking for a place to rent for the week other than a hotel, because it would be nice to have a kitchen and the ability to do laundry.  Most of the places are pretty expensive.  Yesterday, I had a God idea to ask a few of the owners if they would consider taking a reduced price for the week we are there.  A nice man (who indicated He loved the Lord), reduced his price down significantly.  It will be only 1/3 the cost.  Wow!!!  We were hoping we would be able to stay on the property we are believing God for.  Just after this man agreed on the lower price, we heard that we are NOT able to stay on the property.  So when one door shuts, another one opens!  Instead of falling into despair, I said let's think of it as a divine connection.  

Today, this gets posted - and confirms what we heard.

WHAT IF Gods desires is to uncover and reveal something even GREATER to you by His apparent “withholding”, your request?!
#RELEASE YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT TRUST THAT GOD IS SETTING YOU UP FOR A GREATER DESTINY

There is a cost to following Jesus!   God tells us in His word, to count the cost!  He never said it would be easy.  He said pick up your cross and follow Me.   Sadly some choose to walk away from the path God has for them.  With your prayers and continued support and encouragement, we will walk this out.  We know there are lots of obstacles and giants trying to keep us from moving forward, but by God's grace we will.

If you are being asked by God to do something and you're hesitant, or maybe you're afraid, instead choose to trust God.  Know that the blessings outweigh whatever it is you're giving up.  He always has good for those who follow Him wholeheartedly.

Prayer & Praise  - 


Ken - Praise - we've been praying for the last year that God would bring another male employee so that when we move into destiny, his workplace wouldn't be shorthanded.  This week a guy started work! 


Michele - I am being hit hard physically- migraines for 2+ weeks straight no relief, still sore upper throat from accidentally ramming a chip down my throat. lol.   Sleep has been less after having a few good weeks.  Lots of physical pain - knee, back, leg.  I really believe God is going to heal me soon.  Always darkest before dawn.  Please pray for my healing to manifest!  Thank YOU! 


Please pray for provision as we take this scouting journey.  Daily needs & trip needs! 

Please pray for safe travels and a very productive trip.
Please pray God's will be done and that the doors will open!  


Thank YOU so much for your ongoing support, prayers, love and care for us and our ministry.  We are honored to be able to pray for those who reach out to us.  Please let me know if you have any prayer needs.   For those who have been reaching out, thank you!  I am praying for your requests.  



If you have been blessed by this ministry or feel led to support what God is doing through us - financially, below are a few options.  Your generosity and your prayer support is greatly appreciated and needed as we continue to walk in faith and God's calling.

Vision
God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

Committed to the Call




We walk by faith, not by sight 2 Corinthians 5:7

What is He asking of you??
Does His voice convict you?
Are you willing to sacrifice it all?
Will you rise above status quo?
When will you answer His call?

When I first got saved, I remember praying asking the Lord to give me "World Overcoming Faith".   I didn't know what that meant, really..... but I'm starting to get a basic understanding now many years later.  I'm pretty sure I haven't arrived yet and will undergo much more "schooling".

When I went on my first retreat as a brand new believer.  I remember our pastors took us out to this remote place in the country.  I had asked if anyone had any music I could listen to while I spent time with the Lord and someone offered me a cd by Kim Hill.   Music has always been very influential in my life. Good or bad.  Did you know I was listening to Christian music for 15 years prior to becoming one.   This is what God used to lead me to Him.    I wanted to share one of the songs that has most impacted me.  The Lord used this to bring His Truth and a solid foundation to my walk with Him.   Whenever I am needing a swift kick in the pants or some motivation on why I am where I am, I listen to this.

Committed to the Call - 
Kim Hill 

Listen here
https://youtu.be/mf0OqDOUJlY

I hear his voice and I'm convicted
To rise above the status quo
He's asking me to live and listen
And to let His will move my soul

His Holy spirit beckons
I can't help but answer

I am committed to the call
I vow to walk in blind faith
Willing to sacrifice it all
To reflect amazing grace
I am committed to the call

I will revel in the Son's light
And let His love come shining through
I will seek life from the true vine
And bear the fruit of Holy truth

I'm drawn by words of wisdom
Whispering my name


On the retreat, I listened to this song over and over and as I mentioned above, still do fairly often.  I made a vow, a commitment to the Lord, that He could use me and do with me whatever He wanted.  (sometimes, I regret praying that because of the intense "schooling" i get in walking by faith)  But overall, I am still very much committed.  

I bring this up to say this - Ken and I have been believing God for a very long time for some specific promises.   Promises that allow us the finances to step into destiny, to bless others with those same resources; promises to bring me complete healing; and many more.  

Last year the Lord showed us a move to a different area of the country.   Neither of us have ever been there nor knew anything about the place.   In the last 15 months, I have researched and researched everything I could find about that area.   I have subscribed to just about every newspaper, Facebook page, police department blotter and local businesses to get a better feel.   I have created a long list of prayer points praying specifically for those there.  We have been waiting patiently (ok not so much) on God to release us.  It felt like we were but yet, we had no idea on how to even take the first step.  We sought out counsel from some pretty big "faith" giants that we know.  They have been praying with us and leading us.  

Finally just a few weeks ago, we both heard from the Lord is was time to "go put our feet on the ground" and that everywhere we walk, He will give us the land.   The problem was - we don't have the financial resources to go.  But we know that God does!  If He leads, He meets the needs.   One of my brothers offered us frequent flyer miles, the downside is that they only take us 4 hours west of where we are going.   The upside to that is that back in 2009 we had a prophetic word that said we would step into our calling through the back door.   Well in a sense, we will enter the land on the backside.  Hmmm!   

Our hope is that we would be able to stay on the property we feel God has been leading us to.  Though we hold loosely in case He has something different in mind.  We initially thought we should wait to book the flights, but then the Lord said if you book the flight in faith, I will create a domino effect that will take care of the rest.  We even had a total stranger, prophesy those exact words not knowing of course.  Wow!    So, the flight is booked!  Now what?  Well, we need a rental car, gas for the car, lodging and food for a week.  God's got that covered!   Someone sent us a check that will cover the rental car and so we have reserved our car.  That's a big yea God.  I really didn't think walking it would be good.  LOL!   

Just a few days ago, we got a 2nd referral to a realtor in the area.  After praying, we felt led to contact him to see if he would be willing to show us properties while we are there.  We just want to see what else is available - just in case God has different plans.   In expressing our interest and sharing that we feel led to build a retreat property, the realtor responded that he thought this town would be the perfect location and that his parents used to run a retreat center in Arizona.   There were even some other commonalities and one is that he is a believer!   That's a plus!  Our story is just a wild and crazy faith adventure - trusting God to provide the abundance we need to make this happen!   My prayer is that this realtor will be just the one to walk this out with us!  
John Wimber quote

Just this morning, the Lord reminded me once again, that He is pleased with the faith that we have to walk this out.  He has promised He won't fail us and that He is with us leading and guiding us each step of the way.  He said that He was happy I chose to listen to the song so many years ago and commit to His call - to walk in "BLIND FAITH".     

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.  Romans 12:3 





This past weekend we were in KC and saw some of our long time friends, teachers and mentors.  We are so thankful for the roots, the foundations and the intense "training" we received from some very great people!  God has really blessed us by putting these people before us, to walk with us, to pray for us and to equip us to be who God designed us to be!  What an amazing and beautiful gift.   We are eternally thankful!   

I pray that whatever God is asking of you, you can trust Him.  He is good!  He is faithful and He will not fail you.  His promises are yes and amen!  He will bring whatever it is He's promised to pass!   Just believe!!!!! 




Thank YOU so much for your ongoing support, prayers, love and care for us and our ministry.  We are honored to be able to pray for those who reach out to us.  Please let me know if you have any prayer needs.   For those who have been reaching out, thank you!  I am praying for your requests.

It's Time!

Do you feel it?  Have you noticed an excitement in the air?  Recently, several people have approached me asking me if I  felt a shift, something being illuminated but yet, can't quite put their finger on it.   We feel it too.  God is on the move.  I can't explain it, but something is about to happen!  The world is going to take notice!  God is going to get the glory and many are going to be launched into the promises and fulfillment of their purpose, calling and destiny.   It's Time!  

The verse below has been one that God is highlighting this past couple of weeks.   Romans 4:20.   Abraham received his promise, because he was faithful to believe and continued praising God through difficult times.   Now we know that Abraham was human just like the rest of us and there are many scenarios in the Bible where we saw how he went ahead of God and failed.  Two weeks ago, Bob Sorge was here at a local church - and he said that even know Abraham did a few no no's, he kept his eyes on the end goal and obtained the promises.  He also said that even know our life sometimes is patterned like a roller coaster, we have our ups and downs, as long as we show growth and continue to trust God - we too will obtain the promises God has for us.  

This devotional was just another confirmation.   Are you wondering if you have been disqualified because of unbelief or an occasional doubt?   Nah, read this and be encouraged.
