Illuminated in The Power

The Holy Spirit is telling me that many want to give up on the call and turnaround and return to an easier way, and the Living God says, “Press forward!”
In my memories, today was the personalized tag referring to Pressing Forward!
God says you have to know the God, Who is More than Enough!
He is Able! Do not let discouragement or disappointment bring disillusionment to your members, hold onto hope!
The Spirit of the Living God will bring you out of the place you have been, and bring you into the place of God’s Promise!
Stand your ground, only believe, and watch what God will do!
As Rich [husband] and I were at the gym Wednesday morning, finishing our chest and arm workout, I couldn’t help but see the wording on the machine, “Adjustable Cable.”
It was then that God spoke to my heart, that His “Just are Able,” and that He would “Add” unto them.
“For in the Gospel a righteousness which God ascribes is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed through the way of faith that arouses to more faith]. As it is written, The man who through faith is just and upright shall live and shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 AMPC.
The Greek word for just is díkaios pronounced dik’-ah-yos meaning, “equitable (in character or act); innocent, holy, just, and righteous.” (Strong’s Concordance Greek word # 1342)
The just, are those who are righteous through Christ Jesus. The just, are the ones, to whom God is able to add His promises.
This past weekend felt like the weekend from hell. Many assaults came upon my person, mentally and emotionally, driving me to a place where I felt inept in everything, and as though I wanted to stop living life.
I knew it was the enemy roaring against my mind, and I pressed through, leaning on the Word of Truth to resist Satan.
God then told me that His People had to ADJUST, and that it was the present warfare stirring God’s People to wake up to The Father’s Plan, His Hope.
Thus, a release of great distraction and discouragement was allowed, to cause us to MOVE to a place we wouldn’t have otherwise.
Adjust comes from two Latin words, which mean NEAR TO. God showed me that as our soul was so reticent in present circumstances, where we’ve not known God’s call, that we needed to be moved near to the Kingdom of Heaven, knowing WHO WE ARE!
It has taken the trials and tribulation to push us into the place of God’s promise, so that we know the place in which we’re to move. The emphasis has been on moving to the next level.
I heard God say that it is a time to “level up.”
Level up means to go higher in position than we already are. We’ve tolerated what we have believed were worth, in the present circumstances surrounding us.
At this present time, it is intolerable, in how you allow others to treat you, or what you’ll put up with. As a result, the assaults have been allowed so that we know our worth, and where we’re to no longer be quiet and stand our ground, on what we believe is to be the environment we want to dwell in.
I myself, came to this impasse this past weekend, as I realized that “the last straw had broken the camel’s back,” and what I tolerated in years past, was intolerable for my person, since I know my worth and love myself, seeing my value through God’s eyes.
Saints, this is where we are. The attacks have occurred to get you to ADJUST yourselves where you presently are.
Reevaluating where God is now moving you in this time, as you know He is Able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above what we can think or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20).
Don’t beat yourself up, if you’ve had a come apart (meltdown), merely know that things are happening to get you to know your worth through Christ.
In knowing your worth, you will know where He is moving you and LEVEL UP to that promotion!
Saints of God, it is so disheartening at times as I see the nonchalant interaction as it relates to honoring and respecting one another.
Please understand my heart, and that I’m not pointing fingers or trying to make others feel bad, but find it necessary to share truth about how we’re to interact with one another, and for me specifically on my videos that I do live.
This is in reference to others posting that they cannot hear, the video is not working for them, etc.
Before I get into that I want you to hear what is a real minister’s plea, regarding respect for the lifelong career that they have, in relation to being called to do the work of The LORD.
I left a full-time salary paying job February 24, 2011, to go into full-time ministry. Having been a supervisor and working in the secular arena, I treated those under me, equal to me, and above me with respect, in a professional manner.
With that said, I have worked full-time since in the ministry with the same professional attitude, delivering my very best in videos, ministry, posts, books, health and wellness coaching, and more, I serve others not out of being paid by them, but what The LORD has called me to do.
With that said, although my ministry is just a small dot in the realm of other ministries, and barely noticeable on a state level, much less national or global level, I find from time to time that those who are familiar with me, don’t use discretion in their interactions on my wall at times, and especially live videos.
As a minister who serves The LORD Faithfully, and doesn’t look for anything other than the will of God, not getting the salary they did before in the secular arena, and simply obeying, I can tell you there are times you get discouraged, and when others interact on my videos, posting about their personal dilemma with the streaming on their end in the comments, it really gets to me on a whole other level, because I don’t see the excellence in which I put out on my end, being honored.
I know that people wouldn’t do that on any other big name minister’s wall or video, but they don’t think twice about doing it on mine.
I have said this again and again and feel so many times it falls on deaf ears, and again I’m not saying this is everyone, and cannot thank those of you who give of your time to post great comments, interactive comments, and support the ministry work I do.
I try to not let things discourage me and go forward, but I’m just being real with you; other ministers I’m sure feel the same way.
If I were doing a meeting in people’s presence, they wouldn’t interrupt and say I cannot hear you, you’re freezing when you preach, etc.
I am pleading with you to please respect my Facebook wall and especially live videos; it’s not only a distraction to me but others watching because it puts the focus on you.
I wouldn’t be posting this if it had not so disheartened me recently having to message so many people.
I love each and every one of you and what I do for The LORD, all I’m asking is for respect as the bible lays forth.
Illuminated in The Power
I hear The Father saying, “Be not weary in well doing My child, and know that I AM working a great and mighty work in your midst, as you are pruned from the things of this world, knowing the power of My life that dwells within.
I AM the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and I will cause you to know Me as the God of Victory, Jehovah Nissi, Who works all things to your good, giving you provision on every turn, causing you to know that I AM the lifter of your head, as you draw unto Me, in the power of Truth, worshiping Me in the wonder of Who I AM, as I open the eyes of your heart and flood it with My Light.
Your whole body will be illuminated in the power of My truth, more than you have known, as I bring balance and firm footedness in your walk, where I will establish you in My Works of righteousness and show forth My favor, as I open doors you cannot imagine or think.
As I bring forth the work I have for your life, giving you My hope and future, to cause you to enter into the place of plenty and walk in the greatness of My Name, giving you lands, houses and fields, blessing your storehouses, and filling them for the provision to give out to My People, as I set you like a mighty watchmen of the faith, over My storehouse.
Well done good and faithful servant, enter the joy of The LORD!”
Amen and amen!
A saint crying out to God for fullness of deliverance and the manifestation of salvation.

Please don’t get discouraged. These people are still in the wilderness and they are complaining about the manna from heaven. They desperately need you as a good and faithful servant of God. God bless you for your sacrifices!
If people can’t hear you in a facebook live, they may think it’s on your end and want to alert you so you can fix it for everybody? I know interruptions can seem disrespectful, but my advice would be to let it go.
I would agree. Before technology and multi media, the older members would ask me to speak up, or to speak more slowly or clearly. That is basic communication and manners. I am not on facebook as a matter of principle. Do you do a transcript for disabled people? As a communications professional, I gave up much of my time and resources for communication of the gospel and worship in church. Work ethic – do with all your might that which your hands find to do, or Col 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
