Laugh like a kid. Have we become grumpy old people waiting to die? I remember childhood laughter and enthusiasm for each day.
As a child I loved spending time at grandma’s house. I always got plenty of good food to eat and she showed me how to nurture childhood.
Grandma was by no means rich but she lived off the land and even had a tree that grew berries — Mulberry tree.
Grandma loved fishing and raised her own crickets and earthworms. For sure we would have fish and chicken to eat.
Grandma never let me kill chickens, instead my job was plucking chicken feathers.
I learned about responsibility mine and others. When I tried handling jobs not my responsibility, it always got me in trouble.
I enjoyed spending time with grandma, because she did not put pressure on me to be or do anything but be a child.
Yes, we are nearing and approaching the coming of Christ and that means fulfillment of His word good and bad. Don’t be sad just prepare for His coming.
Be a child again, after all we are children of God.
Find fun things to do while we wait for Jesus. Laugh like a kid. I am so glad my grandmother taught me how to keep the enemy from stealing my joy.
And The LORD says, “Thieves are people void of understanding when it comes to The Word of God.
When you are with an active thief; even if you are not stealing; the world will see you as a thief.
If you are in the company of people robbing banks authorities will automatically see you as the thief’s helper.”
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:21-23
“Persons, who have no hope, do not believe in My Word, people who refuse to trust The Word and people — who rather gamble on the world, are thieves.”
“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith The LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith The LORD of hosts.” Malachi 3:8-11
“The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For The LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” Psalm 1:4-6
“Your gifts are personal things that you own and know how to use, possess, and have stewardship over. My Children these are your miraculous gifts.
Your talents and abilities are gifts from Me to make My Kingdom great.”
“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: but all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-11
“What you lay before men in My Name shall bring you in the presence of great kings.
My Children you do not have to steal gifts. Come from among the thief that tries to bring decay in your lives.”
“A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.” Proverbs 18:16-17
The LORD Defines His Use of Gifts
“Lay down time to labor in the Word of God and medicate on the word that I give each person.
Give that self-same Word to men!
Be a blessing to your current ministry.
Serve faithfully and I will reward your every effort — those things that you do, or don’t accomplish.
Serve faithfully regardless if you see progress or not.
Pray without ceasing.
Accept the responsibility of Prayer — this is where you receive anointing.
My Children, prayer is the spring-board for all gifts and callings.
Everything asked in prayer in My Mame — shall be granted according to My Will.”
Note: God does not give conditions concerning prayer but instructions.
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” John 15:7
“Seek greater intimacy with Me so that you may know where your true gifts lay. In prayer I shall reveal your gifts.
When you read Scripture — The Word of God — say, “LORD, I want that!” Then I will show you how The Word manifests!”
The Blessing of The LORD Be upon You,
