WE ARE WHO GOD SAYS WE ARE!


I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (NIV) Psalm 139:14

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it. (NLT) Psalm 139:14

There are so many confounding labels and marketing campaigns attempting to redefine and label us. Just watch a football game or a reality show, and count the endless comnercials, observe and listen to their messages, can you detect what’s for sale? And be oh so careful because when you decide to go shopping your carts will be filled with items that you hadn’t initially intended on purchasing! The marketing guru’s are very convincing! Print media does a fine job at selling us things, especially our children! We fall prey and before long we have adopted the subliminal advertisers messages. Their techniques are subtle but effective and we tell ourselves that we can’t live with out the electronic gadgets, the food, and the “gear”. Advertising is a billion dollar industry creating slick, sleek, eye catching ads which work tirelessly to  bribe us into believing that we can be better, smarter, thinner and accomplished if we have “their” brand, “their” products and “their” services.

But it’s never free, it costs and there are consequences!  If only we buy the right make-up, the bigger bling, the smart and fashionable furnishings, the expensive perfumes and the correct fiber foods-whatever the day’s hot commodity is, once acquired, then and only then  will we “A-ok” !

But when the rubber meets the road and life’s issues begin to take precedence over the mounting acquisitions of more stuff, and none of it does the trick for addressing our personal and spiritual development. So what does?  What will and can be replaced with our retail therapy, cluttered mindset and desire to have more? I believe I know what can halt the thirst or quench and deliver or parched souls. Possibly it’s an elixir of truth about who’s we are and to whom we belong. You need not spare any of your hard earned dollars, just know that your bill was paid at Calvary.

Jesus did it for us!  There are no price comparisons required or merchandise to be had. Only requirement that you need embrace is a willing heart, a renewed mind and an active search-a knocking if you will, a heartfelt searching! Yes, we need only participate in searching for an everlasting truth! A truth that beckons us to embrace a life sustaining friendship where if we knock God answers.

 Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.

Matthew 7:7  NLT

“Knock and the door will be open.” Try an application of divine love. Love that delivers us and answers to questions that your soul is begging for! The advertisers dare not convey your beloved identity! If they told you, you’d have no need for their stuff, their trinkets, their clothing, their lipsticks, their enhancers and certainly not their footware. Just think of what the Divine desires to share with you regarding your true identity and purpose. Oh my friend, it exceeds the messages we are daily bombarded with. Your are more then adequate in Jesus Christ-triumphant, energized and delievered! Think of what God offers you and yours as a heathy alernative, a Holy Ghost elixir an infilling that will never rust or corrode. Here are several encouraging bible scriptures that will delight your very being! Scriptures that reveal who we are in Christ Jesus and what a King and Lord that is in love with you, thinks of you and me!

 Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, He dwells in us

1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19

 We are joined in the Lord and am one spirit with Him .1 Corinthians 6:17

 God leads us in the triumph and knowledge of Christ . 2 Corinthians 2:14

 The hardening of our mind has been removed in Christ . 2 Corinthians 3:14

 We are new creatures in Christ . 2 Corinthians 5:17

We have become the righteousness of God in Christ . 2 Corinthians 5:21

Truly it’s personal! And does it ever take work focusing on our personal, spiritual development! But the benefits outway the failed attempts to kill our progress. The benefits indeed are powerfully positive-our generations to come will reap the harvest because we are healthy and generational bondages won’t be able reek havoc. There’s not a thing that the advertisers can sell me that God won’t and can’t provide. But we must seek Him, pray for continued guidance and sustenance! Come on friends let’s stay connected to the tree of life. It’s all in the Bible, the Holy Scriptures!  God reminds us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made! We rejoice in the commitment of our growth!  Thank you Lord for the awakening our spirits, We are who you say we are!

 We have been made one with all who are in Christ Jesus .Galatians 3:28

 We are no longer a slave but a child of an heir . Galatians 4:7 

We have been set free in Christ . Galatians 5:1

We have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places . Ephesians 1:3

We are chosen, holy, and blameless before God . Ephesians 1:4

THREE TIMES A CHARM!

Linda Mose Meadows Guest Host @ WOKB Radio

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done.    The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5

Three times a charm! This old expression resonated in my spirit when I realized that I needed to blog about this weeks exciting, upcoming event with Jill Capri Simms. She is a humble and generous woman of God; an anointed ministry leader, music composer, soon to be newly published author and an insightful trail blazer. I encourage you to visit her website at: http://liberatingtruth.wix.com/jcsimms.

As an adult I’ve heard it said that, “three times a charm” and lately I am prone to believe that.  I suppose the sentiment is that by the third undertaking you should be able to embark upon a familiar task with great ease.  That could and should be the case but the flipside is that faith and favor aren’t predicated on intellect and repetitive activities. Thank God for Jesus and his open door policy! He will bless you in multiple ways you can’t fathom but truly will applaud.  There are occasions when we have to repeat some life lessons before we can comfortably maneuver and hit our stride.  But truthfully this isn’t about our natural stride at all!  It’s about understanding that God’s sweet grace and mercy have everything to do with our navigating, surviving “successfully” down the dusty tracks of life.  And being well acquainted with the trinity: the benevolent Holy Father; the loving Son, Jesus Christ and relying on the constant companion, the Holy Ghost!  Now that’s hitting your stride!  Three times is indeed a charm!

Jill understands the power of our triune God! God mercifully plants the right people on our paths to encourage us and show us the way.  My conversations with Jill confirm that.

God has gifted each of us and no matter what we perceive as our impact it’s vital to remember that the focus isn’t about us. Ministers like Jill and my husband really walk well in the truth of those shoes!  Like Max Lucado says, “It’s not about you!” I realize this recent blessing God has bestowed upon me is far bigger and more important than me.  Clearly I see it now!  It’s about Jesus’ agenda and what he desires to do for us, in us, and yes, indeed through us! It depends upon us and our receptivity to the divine encounter had with the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost which leads us into all truth about God’s instructions and plans for us! But will we believe our sacred encounter when it occurs? Jill addresses that question eloquently in her upcoming radio show and actively demonstrates it in her multifaceted ministry.

(I am a witness: be a willing, prayerful vessel and watch what unfolds!)  I trust that you too will choose to believe that our availability and faith in God works in direct concert with His divine plan. Relax and trust that our faith journeys include a divine plan (an intended “service” plan) that works well in conjunction with God’s kingdom building here on earth. Either way, if we partner with Jesus it’s definitely a win-win outcome!  And oh yes, our partnership garners an encounter straight from the throne room. Even the fiery darts and unwelcome trials which weigh heavy upon us won’t topple over us.

I pray that you’ll join me on Thursday, September 13th at 6:15pm.  This will be my third weekly trek to Florida’s Urban Empowerment Radio station and I am happily reporting.  My first visit on Thursday, September 6th, 2012 was as Jill’s guest author sharing my devotional: The Blessedness of Believing   A Devotional Journey of Life’s Lessons and God’s Promises.  Today, I am giddy with excitement because on this third visit I will return to WOKB 1680 AM as the guest host for Jill Capri Simm’s Liberating Truth which airs on Thursdays at 6:15pm. Hope you’ll listen in and learn more about Jill’s ministry and her soon to be released book: Him: Encounters with the Third Person.

God is surely in the blessing business and it’s good to realize that His encounters and blessings extend beyond the third, fourth and fifth times. Who knows what my future holds for media broad casting, and beyond but one of the things I am most comfortable about is the assurance that God does have a good and righteous plan for my life, for Jill’s ministry endeavors which doesn’t exempt you!  Just imagine the wonderful encounters the Holy Spirit has awaiting you! It’s a matter of choice, a sure safety net!  Turn on the radio up Ricky, Liberating Truth is on!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 28:11 NIV

IN YOUR HEARTS AS YOU PRAY BE SURE TO UTTER, ” THANK YOU LORD, FOR ALL YOU’VE DONE FOR ME !”

 

 from Random Acts of Kindness

The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you,

And be gracious to you;

The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’

Numbers 6:24-26

“And now may the LORD show lovingkindness and truth to you; and I also will show this goodness to you, because you have done this thing.

2 Samuel 2:6

What had ignited this thanksgiving in the midst of some confusion that was begging for attention and recognition like a screaming toddler? Surely it couldn’t have been this Monday morning’s unanticipated “cleaning up”, “straightening up”as Mama aptly labels it. But I do know that something definitely led to this mornings praise and worship that overshadowed all of the foolishness. Maybe it was my momentarily scanning facebook, reading my notifications then virtually visiting my friend’s pages which had me gravitate towards the wall of Random Acts of Kindness. Looking at their colorful graphics and spiritual messages there was no doubting that I would immediately share several of their timely, upbeat-encouraging words and post them on my own wall. Sounds familiar I bet. Determined to keep the momentum flowing I hurriedly ate my breakfast, and got busy focusing –“straightening up”, gathering a load of rugs to be laundered, then it was a frantic pace of applying cleaning solutions, wiping and spraying as I cleaned the bathrooms. It was much too quiet so I turned on Pandora and enjoyed my Tramaine Hawkins station. Absolutely I love hearing her sing: Changed.

A change,

A change has come over me!

My spirit concurs, “Me too, Sister Tremaine, I can attest to that!”

Lord knows that is distinctly the truth, I’ve got options on how I’ll choose to respond and engage the enemy. Yes, thank goodness for the reminder of that on yesterday. Instead it is time to be still and remember the joy God showered on me and a gathering of friends yesterday. My heart initially was heavy but God had a great surprise in store for all of us.

As I reflect on Sunday, it was so sweetly orchestrated by the divine. Several of us all had a similar idea and that was to meet at our elder friend’s home-unexpected there we were. It began when we casually gathered and then it happened, assembling our chairs closer (circular fashion) to our beloved elder/surrogate mother/ aunt/ confidante/ friend. And we felt it, subtle but pronounced, it was in the air, the outpouring of the divine elixir of shared wisdom, love, and anointing flowing freely. Mother wit took her rightful seat to. Laughter, prayer, repentance, joy, struggles, victories and pain weren’t withheld. Nodding of heads and voracious hearts eagerly soaking up nuggets which caused the conversational coverings to be freely exposed, flung aside and open heartfelt issues sprung. Oh I am so thankful for the unearthed revelations birthed and shared! We concurred that what the devil had intended for our demise, God turned around and allowed “it” to be for our good. The liberated conversations, the fellowship, the kindred hearts erupted into prayerful thanksgiving that God was so active in the midst of it all and we continue to stand on those truths. We are persuavering still, we  overcame much and it’s evidenced that our scripts are yet unfolding. God had and has plans for our good. It’s so clear that that God sent my sisters and adopted mother this way! Collectively our hearts leaped when we realized that although there are apparent difficulties and valley experiences that we must encounter, it never negates the awesomeness of our Jehovah God! He’s with you and me especially during our moments of isolation. So my energy burst entailing: scrubbing, searching and reflecting indeed is a part of this watershed of thanksgiving to the Lord. Surely you see it also! It validates we are not abandoned and alone, it’s just a matter of when God will connect us with other believers. And you know what? Our meeting together could not have occurred on a better day! This was indeed no random act but God’s way of once again displaying his kindness. Thank you Holy Ghost! Time to go and tackle my closet for the clothes give-away! Be blessed my brothers, and be further encouraged my sisters!

  PRAYER:

Yours is the kingdom of heaven and of earth! We acknowledge that we belong to you and every good and perfect gift comes from you God even when our worlds are quaking! Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me and mine! Without you we’d be forever lost. You are our great and mighty Heavenly Father! We decree and declare that the spiritual gifts you’ve provided will enlarge our territories for  God’s plan and our consecrated good. We love you and are so appreciative of your numerous acts of kindness and mercy towards us, and that which concerns us. Let us not be hindered, nor distracted by the evil one. Bless those that are in need of a divine touch and are in search of a new direction. Let us be instrumental in sharing the Good News of the Gospel and  your love through service & prayer. Help us Lord in our struggles to overcome hurts and hardship. We will not be weary in well doing and cheerfully endeavor to serve you in spirit and in truth. With hearts ready for service we continually behold your presence in awe and thanksgiving!  Thank you for the blood shed for our redemption and salvation. Yours is the honor, glory and the praise, in Jesus name we pray! Amen!
