The Unseen🌒

God bless everyone; tonight I will speaking about a woman that the Bible does not give much background on; however she was shown as a victorious woman. This is during the years that Israel was under the rule of Jabin King of the Canaanites after God sold the nation of Israel because they had been doing wickedness in his sight.

 And she said, ” I will surely go with you. Nevertheless the road on which you are going will not lead to your glory, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman” Jud 4:9

God had commanded Barak to lead an army of 10,000 soldier to fight Sisera who was the commander of Jabin king of Canaan. Maybe it was fear or self-doubt that made this man delayed in doing then order that God had commanded for him; that gave the opportunity not only for Deborah but also an unknown woman named Jael to come out as woman of valor and victory. God had called Barak but in his lapsed in making the decision; the glory of the victory for the battle would be bestowed upon a woman.

“Then Jael, Heber’s wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went down into the ground; for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.”
‭‭Jud‬ ‭4:21

One thing that I want you to get from this post tonight is that God calls but when we disobey his command or call it’s not a good thing. Many times the calls that God makes to us it’s to glorify himself through us. Barak in a moment of self-doubt let the honor of being know as the person who defeated Sisera be given to someone else. You have to grab the opportunity when it presents itself. As I have testified before; there have been moments when I have felt like quitting because of the responsibility that comes with being a leader. However God has always in one way or another spoken to me to not let cowardice take from me what he wants me to have. Jael was a woman who saw an opportunity and she took it; she fooled the enemy with kindness and made him feel comfortable and safe; before she obeyed God’s command.

Grab with both hands the opportunity that God presents to you. This series we are talking about being called with a purpose but at the end of all; we are the ones responsible in doing what is necessary. Jael’s actions made her be known in the Bible as a victorious woman; that did not let fear nor self-doubt stop her from doing what needed to be done. That action gave Israel  the boost they needed through God’s help to destroy and defeat King Jabin and his rule.

You unravel me, with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance, from my enemies
Till all my fears are gone

Fear of the unknown or unseen stops our calling; it’s time to break free from those chains that keep us prisoners in our own self-doubt and insecurity. Rise up to the occasion as Jael and be known as a woman or man who is victorious in God’s eyes. The enemy rules over what we give him liberty to; stop that and rise up to the unseen and the call that God has put in your life.

I have decided to put my trust in God that he will provide a way not just for me blog but for me personally in every aspect of my life. Thank you so much; I really appreciate it🤗💕💕Shalom🕊🕊

Missing one brother😞 Left( father, mother,youngest, oldest,myself, sister in law, and third oldest)

Happy & Bless Thursday !!! This week actually this whole year of 2018 I seen God’s hand move in my life and family. And what a tremendous pleasure it gives me to glorify and exalt the name of God because he is good. I can attest to that; I have seen his hand move to restore, lift and bless my life and my family.

My first blog post of the  series named ” Called with a Purpose” has been published on the blog ; go check it out Blessing within a Curse. I will not be speaking about that; it’s with immense joy and gratitude that I’m going to tell you what happened on sunday. Maybe some of you will not believe me or might think that I’m making up stories but with certainty and with my heart in my hands I tell you the blessing that our household received this last sunday.

Some of you know as I have spoken— well written in the blog that my mother and I and  the brethren in christ have been praying for my father and brothers for them to come to God’s path back again. As I posted in the blog post I’m a Warrior  , my father had started to rise up in the ministry after being in the backseat for many years. It’s with immense joy that I say that he took the step to reconcile with God on sunday and not only him but my youngest brother and the oldest( the firstborn) who arrived unexpectedly that day to our church from Texas. I could not have imagined nor predicted God’s perfect timing; truthfully I can say that God has been beyond good to me. A word that my pastor brought and spoke to our church was that we needed to start declaring that dried bones needed to come back to life; we needed to start prophesying over our family members; we needed to start declaring that their spiritual lives needed to be resurrected but having faith that it will happen.

I can almost see the comments rolling in; saying that we should not believe that nonsense as it’s not written in the bible anything about that. But your relationship with God cannot be compared to someone else’s. God has given us the authority to cast out demons, to prophesy that the land where we at will be ours; why then is it so difficult to prophesy over the lives of our family members?. I’m a pentecostal gal and will always be and I truly believe that God moves in mysterious and innumerable ways you and I cannot imagine. One verse that summons everything up to me is in Isaiah 55: 8-9;

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts

As I write this I know this is the first step and that their walk is not going to be easy. Since my father started to rise up in the ministry again; he has been attacked him in different ways. His finger almost got cut off at work; he did not work for almost a week because he needed stitches which meant not much pay for rent. A concrete fell on his knee on the week he had to sing( yes he sings) for the men’s service; this upcoming friday he has to preach and I know the enemy will have something in wait to discourage him from continue to pursue his ministry but I believe that he is covered with the blood of Jesus and no principality nor any spirit that tries to touch him will be able to. As I always say God has call each one of us with a purpose; it depends on us if we let the enemy have control of our lives. We cannot let fear overpower us because fear is not from God; instead we need to pick the armor that God has provided for us and continue moving forward.

I encourage the person who is reading this blog post and you have years of praying for that person that does not want or does not know of God; to never cease praying and declaring them for Christ. There are mysteries in our walk with God; don’t be like everyone else instead learn to listen and discern what is from God and what is not. Ask God and he will let you know. All I know is because God has revealed through his word or through elders. They are more battle ready then the new generation; seek counsel when you feel like quitting because there will be moments when you don’t even want to open your bible nor will you want to bow down and pray. But it’s in that moment that you need to be in your knees seeking God and declaring salvation over that person’s life.

P. S. On saturday I will be posting the second blog post on the “Called with a Purpose” series. Do go check out👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻 Callie Susanna blog; I’m guest posting tonight there.

Not Going Back| Guest Blogger

In Sunday school the other weekend, my class and I were talking about the advances in technology over the past 100 years: about how people used to ride in horses and buggies, than cars and airplanes and space shuttles.

We talked about how dangerous it would be now if someone decided to ride a horse and buggy on a major highway, or used an old-model airplane to fly passengers, or tried to get to space in old technology.  We have advanced beyond that; we’ve learned and we’ve grown.  Every now and then we may indulge the whim to ride in a horse and carriage, or even a hot-air balloon, but ultimately, they are not safe or effective means of transportation in the long run.

I immediately saw a spiritual parallel.

In my faith, I’ve grown.  I gave my heart to Jesus at five years old, and I’ve learned much more about Him and have grown physically, mentally, and spiritually in the time since then.  I’ve stepped up to lead and mentor those around me.  I’ve been faithful on this blog and in seeking God in my moment-to-moment life.

I can’t go back.  Sure, every now and then I “indulge” the whim to worry or stress or negative self-talk, but ultimately, it’s dangerous in my journey to Christ.  It can cause me to have an accident, as well as endanger those on this road around me.

I don’t say this from a place of feeling stuck, but a place of rejoicing over the progress, the advancements, in my faith.  I don’t want to go back!

Imagine if the Israelites tried to cross back over the Red Sea, or if Queen Esther didn’t talk to her husband, or if Ruth stayed behind and let Naomi go on her own! History would be drastically different; a whole people group would be gone.

What part of our legacy could be erased if we turned back now?
