Pharaoh’s Heart

I had felt compelled to write this blog with the recent win of the horse Pharaoh in the 2015 Triple Crown

Pharoah's heart 1

God is all things, He is in all things. I often talk about this with people. As Christians we do not look at the world and see God, and it’s understandable considering all that is taking place and the condition of hearts in this time. But…. if you look closely, you can see God’s hand in everything. Example, we can see Him in numbers as the Hebrew and Greek text of the bible, it’s original form had a numbering system for each letter. I’m sure you are all familiar with the passage in the bible that states you will know satan by the number of his name, and it being 666. In a previous blog I wrote about God showing me the #44. Also, the stars, they were put in place for signs and seasons hence the star of David, the wise men followed the star and were able to be in the presence of the savior of the world. Notice the Bible calls them “wise men”; they knew from reading the word that God was going to give them a sign through a star, and they heeded. God gives us signs all the time, in and through the most mundane things, most times we are too busy to notice. But, if we slow down enough to notice the world is filled with nuggets of gold popping out of the ground that we can catch a glimpse of the bigger picture.

Gold nuggets

Back to Pharaoh, what could a horse race and God’s hand have in common. Well, as a gold digger (reference above picture..lol) When I see the headline it immediately perks my interest, because of the name of course “Pharaoh”. What is the thing remember most about Pharaoh of Egypt in the book of Exodus? He had a hardened heart.

Exodus 4:21
The LORD said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.

Exodus 7:4
he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites.

Exodus 7:13
Yet Pharaoh’s heart became hard and he would not listen to them, just as the LORD had said.

Exodus 10:1
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them

We are currently living in a time, where the people at large , do as they wish with no fear of repercussions. God has given us signs and more signs of His displeasure with our turning from Him.

Here are some examples- Earthquakes in various places, mass animal die offs, volcanoes erupting, divisions, kingdom against kingdom, violence beyond violence, civil unrest, moral decline, lawlessness, natural disasters.

Yes, all these things have happened before but not at the same time. The Lord is desperate to get our attention, but only a few are really listening and heeding His warnings to us. Just like Pharaoh, the Lord sent plagues, He turned the river into blood, yet Pharaoh was convinced He was to win, and maybe He did for a short while as he continued to shake His fist at the Lord in defiance.

We as a collective people have shaken our fist at the Lord, we have said sure do what you want with the weather, the earthquakes, with people, but we will come back stronger. It seems as if Pharaoh has won right now, we have crowned Pharaoh king, by continuing to do as we please in the sight of the Lord, completely disregarding HIs sovereign word. We have made our own rules, and went our own way. But, if you read the above scripture, God tells us in His word that He in fact hardened Pharaoh’s heart, He allowed it all to happen as to glorify the Lord in the end. He blinded Pharaoh, He hardened His heart, He closed his ears from hearing sound truth. Are we at that point as a world? That God has hardened the hearts, shut the eyes, and closed up the ears, so that what He says will happen, will indeed happen. I am sure of it. Even though it appears Pharaoh has won the race figuratively and literally, he has not. God is allowing all things fall into place so when He moves His mighty hand we will have no doubt of who is in charge. Every knee will bow.

This world, is a dim reflection of the reality of heaven, the reality of how things really are.

New Living Translation
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. 1 Corinthians 13:12

If we dig for the golden nuggets, we can see what God is trying to tell us. Pray so very hard that God opens your ears, eyes, and makes your heart soft. The day of the Lord is sooner than you think.

New Day

Jesus_Walking_on_Water

It’s a new day today and I am brimming with

Hope and Victory

God has refreshed my soul my spirit with His.

He is teaching me new things, He has stretched my faith portion.

I am diligently looking to Him.

Not focusing on anything that this world is trying to throw at me.

I am standing on God’s truth.

In Him there is no defeat only victory.

There is freedom, like nothing that any of us only dwelling in the natural have ever known.

We have power! Untapped power! Everlasting, overflowing.

We can walk in “LOVE”

Actually IN IT!

We also have authority. Authority over the enemy.

It’s not based on feelings, worthiness, or hierarchy.

It is based on “FAITH”

Matthew 17:20 New International Version
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

John 14:12 New International Version
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

“Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things” —–

THAT’S US!!!

He couldn’t have been more clear.

Try it!

Today, pray for the sick in Jesus name and EXPECT. Today, hand over your hardest problem, your biggest worry and then EXPECT. Not only expect but more importantly believe.

Demonstrate your heavenly inheritance. Give all the praise and glory to the King of Kings.

You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to Gain!

Today is the day! A new day in Christ Jesus! Amen

The Holy Spirit begins to whisper to my Heart

The whole situation with my friend Joanne really changed me. At that point that I knelt down and said the prayer to God to  use me, I felt a change in my spirit. I wasn’t quite sure what it was at the time but, I felt very empowered, strong, and bold. I was sitting at GiGi’s one afternoon, and it wasn’t busy and all at once I got this feeling come over me, I should start a Women’s group. I can send out a mass facebook message to my friends and family that were female and set a place to get together so that we could talk. Talk about where we were at in our lives, how we felt spiritually and how we could rise up women to outpour our nurturing maternal instincts to our communities through volunteering, community service projects etc. But, most of all to know that we can do nothing without the God, that we could be empowered by him to do good things. Yes, this all came to me at once..lol.. I was excited immediately and had butterflies in my stomach. In my usual fashion, I jumped right in. I sent a message out with all this information in my head and tried not to pre judge anyone on whether they would be interested or not. I was pretty sure of who would come and who wouldn’t but I wanted to extend the invitation to all. In all I believe I sent the invite to like 60 women. Once, I sent it, I immediately got the butterflies again and thought what did I just do? Some of these women are going to think I am nuts but, at this point there was no turning back. I waited anxiously for responses. As the day wore on a few trickled in and from the people I least expected, and the ones I thought would respond didn’t. I took it in stride and still felt really excited about it. Because, ultimately did it really matter what everyone thought? Or was I doing this because I felt the passion to do it?

 After a few hours I thought to myself where am I going to have this meeting at? I didn’t want to have it at home, I knew that I would be distracted. Then 2 women that shopped at GiGi’s popped into my head. They had come in a month or so ago and were telling me they lived in a neighboring town and owned an old church. In that church they were feeding people, letting people sleep there that were homeless, clothing them, counseling young mothers. I remember being very impressed with what they were doing. So, because I am bold, I looked up one of the ladies names that I could remember in the phone book and called her. I asked her if she remembered me and she did. I went on to tell her of my bright idea and wanted to know if I could hold my meetings there. I explained to her that the spirit of what I wanted to convey was exactly what they were already doing, and that it would be a perfect spot. I also asked her if she and her sister in law (The other woman) would be interested in being a part of it. She obliged and now I had a place to have the meetings! I was thrilled. About 2 weeks later we had our first meeting. As, I was getting ready to leave the store to head over I was gathering my notes I had written to speak about. I was almost at the door to leave and I thought I should give them something. So, I went to the back room and I had a box of prayer coins that had sayings on them. For example, God Loves you, Serenity Prayer etc. I stuffed them in my purse and rushed out the door. I was a nervous wreck. It went surprisingly well and all the women in attendance about 8, seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say. I didn’t talk to much about Faith until the end, then I said before we go I would just like to say that God gives us the power to do all things, and that this statement shouldn’t be intimidating because it doesn’t mean we have to perfect it just means that we trust him. After that ending I handed each person a prayer coin all were different and I didn’t look I just handed them out. I said let this just be a reminder of how he is the basis of all we do.

I was very happy with how it went and was excited to get feedback from the women individually to see what they thought. The next morning I checked my email on Facebook and I had a message from one of the attendees, she said that she really enjoyed the meeting and that it was just what she needed. She went on to say that she had been wrestling with making a decision for 6 months a decision she was afraid to make  and she said she felt inspired but what I had talked about. But, she said when you gave me that coin it was a sign, an answer to my prayers, the coin had the message on it that read  “Do not be afraid” . I immediately got  a stirring in my spirit, that God had given me this idea and that through this group woman would be touched. At this point I did not know exactly how God worked, I had never read the Bible, nor did I attend any Bible studies etc. I was a taken a back, but this led me to be more aware of when God was prompting me to do something, when he was leading me in to obedience

Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God
