Don’t entertain what’s not from God

Its so good when you get to the point in your GOD journey with the Holy Spirit that you know you have to wait on Gods perfect timing. The test is surely in the waiting.He doesn’t have to prove to us that He has gone before us, that’s a matter of faith. We must know that he has done all He said He would do..The test is in the waiting.

Bad situations will come and go and they can cause us to focus and even fixate on, what clearly is not from Him. Our skewed perceptions are what we tend to focus on which of course causes everything around us to come crashing down. Perceptions are lies and they cause us to see things from twisted perspectives at best.

Make sure that whatever situation is trying to drag you down sent from the father of lies, that you choose to respond rightly and not react to whatever is coming at you. Reactions tend to come from the soul that is mind, will and emotions and not from the spirit of God in you. Scripture is critical in your responses..Pray in the spirit and ask for discernment. The answers you are seeking may be right in front of you.

Breaking Point

The Lord started to press Georgia (NG2NP) onto my heart. I didn’t know why, I barely knew her at the time, oh boy do I know now. I was in a relationship that was destroying me. It was just one in a long line of the same. I was empty, depressed, broken, angry, bitter and acting like an abused animal, snappy and unforgiving. I thought I was protecting myself, but the truth is I was operating in fear and reliving previous experiences and subconsciously trying to control and manipulate everything around me. I finally reached my breaking point one night at church and it drove me right into the arms of Narrow Gate 2 Narrow Path and ultimately back to the Lord God. I fought “inner healing” for a long time, but I could finally see that I needed to lose myself from the chains of bondage that had created and perpetuated all the ugly lifestyles I had grown accustomed to.

While I was going through my weekend through “The Gate” at “The Fortress,” the Lord broke off all the chains of insufficiency, violence, sexual sin, manipulation, false guilt, religiosity, control and hyper independence. My relationship with Holy Spirit is restored. He is teaching me how to love correctly, how to be obedient, how to be a child of God and how to minister to my brothers and sisters in Christ in His Kingdom. He is finally a good enough reason for me to be moved. Thank You Jesus for liberty in subjection to righteousness!

Today in my restoration, I am MUCH more Kingdom-centered. Patient and forgiving, I see other people’s hurts more clearly, and my heart breaks for them. My hearing the still small voice of the Holy Spirit has been renewed, and my obedience increases daily, my repentance expeditious. My prayer life has also increased as I’ve yielded to the guidance of Holy Spirit.

I would highly recommend Narrow Gate 2 Narrow Path to any weary warrior. All believers should do this, especially if they are spirit-filled and feeling distant from the Lord. I would say, “remove the blockage! RECONNECT!” My NG2NP After Care Ministers were edifying and encouraging and critical to my successful redemption. It’s important to note, I am not easily swayed, and I know without a shadow of ANY doubt my Lord used these ladies and this Narrow Gate 2 Narrow Path Ministry to edify my spirit and usher forth Kingdom crafted liberty and truth in my life. I am incredibly grateful and completely set free.

Religion vs. Relationship

There is such a difference between religion and relationship. So cliche so say, but when Holy Spirit arrives on the scene, only He has the ability to convict, correct, adore and love us all at the same time. No human bestows those qualities within transforming presence. He changes everything and everyone.

It absolutely never ceases to amaze and stun me and I pray it never does, to see the stunning healing and delivering power pf God through the Holy Spirit upon His willing surrendered people. When you show up, yielded to His leading, so will He regardless of your past iniquity and hurts. Who else does that? No man or any god has ever put down his throne for us. Only Jesus..

May our loving Father always be glorified through “the Gate” that is Jesus..May we never forget or lay down the understanding of His sacrifice for us so that we may be healed, delivered and set free from all guilt, shame, abandonment, trauma and every other hurts we gather as we walk this journey called life.

May we continue to walk the walk and fight the fight knowing our eternal reward is with Jesus.. may we continue to minister freely to those are held captive by this upside world.

May He always call us friend,

John 15:15 I have never called you servants because a master doesn’t confide in his servants, and servants don’t always understand what the master is doing. But I call you my most intimate and cherished friends, for I reveal everything that I’ve heard from my Father.

John 10:9

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.

NG2NP

There is so much going on in the spirit realm right now, it would be ridiculous for me to continue to NOT write it down. The war in the heavenlies is so vast and fierce, you would have to be totally numb or highly medicated to not feel it…There IS a wrestling going on. the battle between dark and light, the battle between soul and spirit…

We must each decide which side we will serve and who we will run with in that race…. Those who maybe have been beside us in the last season may not be in the next…and that’s ok. It’s not a competition, it’s a “slalom” race (The act or sport of moving or racing in a zigzag course, as in skiing or kayaking.)

This las year has stretched and bent believers into positions and mind sets good and bad, that we have never, ever imagined…those who are old enough to remember lessons from the past are fading into a generation who have not yet learned, which only in The Kingdom of God could that create a great harvest…perfect setting for beauty from ages…. We are literally and spiritually on fire.

My prayer is that The Lord truly burn away the dross, purify me, refine and then retire again every bit of me that doesn’t honor you…God that I’m so in tune with your will, that distractions may sway me, but I will not be moved..

Life is moving so rapidly for me and I would imagine for others as well, I have to be steadfast in finding peace and time alone with my Jesus. People, situations, words, and times and seasons will come and go faster than ever before, bridges built and bridges burned. Be present in every moment, with prayer and petition with a grateful heart we most hang on to all the blessings and the visible destiny of God in our lives.

Isaiah 43:18-21 Msg. Forget about what has happened, don’t keep going over old history! Be alert! Be present! I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! Im making a road through the desert! Rivers in the badlands! Wild animals will say thank you!!

Eyes up my friends…. We are in a completely new thing.

Don’t underestimate God

This morning reading Judges 9, the story of Abimelek. The power hungry half son of Gideon.
Such hunger for power is never satisfied, it only becomes more intense. Manipulation led him to hire “scoundrels” the Bible calls them, to murder his family and the attempted conquering of the city. The story goes on to say as Abimeleks soldiers got closer, the people Shechem ran to THE STRONG TOWER and climbed to the top. There a “woman” dropped a millstone and killed Abimelek.
Don’t underestimate Gods ability to use you in anyway in this hour… you may be the very person he needs to save a people. Run to the strong tower that is Jesus and the enemy will flee. Some around you may say your not able…But Gods plan says you are capable through Him…Run to His tower and be an overcomer.
