Yesterday I had some really heavy things weighing on my heart and mind. Sometimes my discernment is heightened and it causes my emotions to be heightened as well, help me Poppa. My mentor says to pray for a mature heart to handle that which God shows us, she is so wise and that is my prayer. I woke today and as I went out and looked up at the sky I saw an eye formed. I could see it so clearly. The Holy Spirit led me to 1 Peter 3:12, “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.” Oh the things my Poppa showed and told me about enemy that is after me. Even in all of that, I prayed for mercy and grace. The warrior for God is bursting forth from me. The lion of Judah is roaring. Continue to throw your darts. I’m focused, my Father has given me the power and authority to fire back. I stand with my Father against them that do evil. People’s deliverance depends on it, souls being rescued from the pit of hell depends on it, my family depends on it! The battle is real my friends. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Goodness the enemy has been fighting me hard lately, but he is a liar! Tears came to my eyes as I read this today. I was listening to “Beauty for Ashes” by Kira Fontana. Calling things which be not as though they were. That my friends is faith. Tears begin to wail up in my eyes. Daughter, have I not promised you these things? You have only to believe. I recalled a conversation recently where someone had told me how it was too late for someone else. I had countered it is never too late for God, in which they just skimmed over to make their point. But God. Never underestimate the power of God. There is an entire Faith chapter in the Bible and countless miracles that prove He is a life changing kind of God. I will continue to call those things that are not as though they are believing they will come to pass as I stand on the promises of God. It’s not something I pulled out of the air, it’s Biblical! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

What comes out of your mouth matters. The definition of perverseness is “Contrary to what is right or good; wicked or depraved: a perverse world of sinners.” (www.thefreedictionary.com) It grieves the Holy Spirit when such words come out of our mouth or when we partake in conversations where they are being communicated. It creates a breach in the spirit or a disruption in communication. Help me Father to have a wholesome tongue in everything that proceeds from my mouth. Forgive me for anything said in anger or aggravation that has created a breach in communication with the Holy Spirit! Forgive me for even engaging in conversations with others who’s communication may not be wholesome and pleasing to Your ears. Help me to be a testimony for You, a witness for Your grace and mercy and how to speak with love and kindness even in anger. Let a wholesome tongue rule my mouth. In Jesus name, Amen. Words matter! They matter in what you speak over your life, they matter in what you speak over others, they matter in how others perceive you, they just matter! Temper what you say with love and kindness. Even for those who are against you, love them with the love of Jesus and temper what you say to them. Help me Poppa as I vowel to do this! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.” ~ Proverbs 15:4

The Lord had me looking at word Scriptures this morning. Word curses. Did you know you could curse yourself with the very words you speak? The devil really is a sly one isn’t he? One of the things that stood out in my deliverance class is the enemy likes to talk to you in the first person, he wants you to perceive the thoughts are coming from you. You will start speaking things over yourself without even realizing it and before you know it what you have spoken has become a part of your identity: “I’m ugly”; “I’m too fat”; “I can’t do anything right”; “I will never find anyone.”; “I’ll never be good enough”; “I’ll always be sick”. Whatever it is, you curse yourself with it, without even realizing what you are saying. James 3:10 says, “Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.” The enemy has conditioned us to do it without even thinking. Those thoughts have to be manually reprogrammed, with the help of God, to be reversed. Think as we speak and as those thoughts start to come out of our mouth stop them and filter them with the grace of Jesus. I have gained weight, but it is coming off with the help of Jesus. I am not ugly because I am made in God’s image. I am going to be 10 pounds lighter this time next month because Jesus will give me the strength to lose it! This may look hard, but I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me! There is a Scripture for every single opposition, find it and use it to counter the word curse coming out of your mouth! Wash your words clean. Break any curse by repenting and asking for forgiveness, renouncing it, and rebuilding with positive words that speak life into and bless your situation! Don’t get discouraged. You didn’t build these overnight and it will be a process of deliverance to clear them away but God is your strength and He will start showing them to you if you start asking Him to. Once they start being released from your life you will feel the weight release too. Those words, they truly matter. Speak life in every word you speak! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

What are you thinking on? Proverbs 23:7 tells us what we think in our heart, so are we. This morning’s verse outlines the things we should think on: things that are just, pure, lovely, of good report, having good virtue, having any praise. The things that we let into our ears and the things we let our eyes see (the music we listen to and things we watch. Places we visit and people we come into contact with) are just important. These things get into our spirit, they penetrate our mind. We give legal access many time to foul spirits just through the actions we take without even realizing it. What you think on is just important as what you say and do. Word curses, what you speak over yourself matters. I’m this or I’m that, it matters my friend. Speak life into your situation, do not in any means speak the power of death or destruction or sickness into it. I may have a migraine, but it is not my migraine! I am not claiming it. I am claiming healing in the name of Jesus. Speak life. It may be raining in your life today but it is to water the grounds for the seeds of tomorrow. Speak life! Your words matter! What are you thinking on? Take inventory of your thoughts and what areas the enemy is attacking in and where you need to change and ask the Lord to help you. Start decreeing for change in that area and watch the Lord work in your favor my brother and sister in Christ. You will be amazed how much what you think on makes a difference in your life. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” ~ Philippians 4:8

I really needed this verse as a reminder to myself this morning, by the stripes of Jesus I AM healed. I spent 5 hours in the ER yesterday. When the Dr. ask me how long I’d had this migraine, I said since Friday. With understanding and concern (you see God didn’t provide me with just any Dr., He provided me with one in the ER that gets the same migraines I get- favor), he said this is Wednesday. WOW. I didn’t even realize I’d had it so many days in a row, we are on the 6th day. My body was exhausted, it was no wonder on that morning I was dropping things and pushed to the point of almost passing out. This one, was a rare one for me in that exhibited more “scary” symptoms of tingling and numbness in the face, ones I get very infrequently, but ones the Dr. also was familiar with getting. He said I don’t want to just give you a shot and send you home, I want to put the medicine through an IV and see if it is going to work and they got some fluids in me. I didn’t even realize I had not been drinking enough. The medicine lifted the headache, but he said it didn’t take it completely, did it? He knows these headaches well!!! He put me off to rest today, wisely knowing I needed to sleep because without it the headache was going to come right back and this morning I could already feel the pounding behind my eye. I’m weary Poppa and as I prayed and read for a Scripture for today this is where I was led! He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him! WOW!! He did that for us and as a result of His blood at the cross and the stripes He took, we ARE healed. Daughter you ARE healed says the Lord. Let go of that thing troubling you and let me be God. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is let go of the things we battle in our mind. I share that with you because I know I am not alone in this. Giving it to God is not easy, but that release when you do is so sweet. The attack starts in your mind, you have to fight back there! I am speaking healing over your body and mind today, by Jesus stripes you ARE healed. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” ~ Isaiah 53:5

So many lessons in this verse. Jesus took authority over the storm. He said peace be still and there was a great calm. Where is the enemy raging over your mind? He will take that one thought and toss it to and fro in your mind like a wave at sea in storm IF you allow it. It is up to you to say peace be still and cast it out. Our level of faith starts in the mind and the seeds we allow the enemy to plant and what we decide to water with with our thoughts. There are so many things we need to cast out, but we entertain them instead. We need to make our minds still with the peace of Christ and then replace with with joyful thoughts, things true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of good virtue, of good praise (Philippians 4:8). It is a battle in the mind while faith grows in the heart. Peace be still for you today in the name of Jesus. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Jesus help us. In what way are we walking? As individuals many of us are walking in His ways, but as a society too many are walking to the right and to the left. The result is what you see all around us. You tell me, is it good? You cannot follow God in some things and not others and expect satisfactory results. He is an all or nothing God. He wants all of your heart. You can’t partly get to heaven. On judgement day you won’t be able to say well I did some good deeds, they should outweigh the bad. He’s going to say depart from Me… He desires to have your heart now and He is so full of grace and mercy I just can’t understand not fully submitting to Him. It grieves my heart so much when I see people who He is calling fight it. The devil is a master manipulator, indeed the father of lies and so many are blinded by the things he sets before them. Their demons have such a stronghold and it causes them to hurt the ones they hold dearest. In these last days it is so important to do a heart a check. What road are you walking? Is God urging to move from the right or the left onto His road? Today is a good day to get centered. Are you not sure what He’s calling you to do or don’t know how? Email me and I’ll pray with you! He’s calling you because He loves you, yes, YOU and He wants you centered on right the way, His way, and He will lead you every step of the way if you let Him and walk with Him. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

He has called us by name ya’ll! Each and every single one of us, He knows our name and every single little detail about us. Nothing goes unnoticed. We aren’t forgotten, we aren’t rejected, we are HIS! We are forgiven, we are redeemed, we are washed cleaned. We are made in His image y’all! The devil no longer has anything on us. I feel a joy bubbling up when I read this verse. I am my Father’s daughter. The devil likes to try to grab hold of my mind with things of the past, but I no longer live there. I’ve been set free and you have too! Is there something you are holding on to? Give it to God and let it go. He’s forgiven you and it’s time to forgive yourself! It’s time to love yourself and see yourself through His eyes. He loves you child of God so much He gave His son for your life because He thought you were worth it. Let that sink in today. You are worthy of His love. ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

The Lord hears our tears. I saw a meme earlier in the week that said sometimes I pray help me Lord, help me help me help me, or something along those lines. The truth is He also hears us when all we can do is cry out to Him. The Holy Spirit knows our heart and catches every single tear that falls. Today’s verse says His ears are open to our cry. He receives them as if they were spoken words, they are tender and heart felt, they touch our Father’s heart in a special way and you can be assured He will respond to the cry of His child! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
