“From Bitter to Restoration”

In the book of Ruth, Naomi was a woman that was full when she left her homeland with her husband and two sons. They resided in Moab for years then she lost not only her husband but also her sons. She decided that she would return back to her homeland where she could at least be around people she knew. She returned with her daughter-n-law Ruth. It had been years and they did not expect to see her again.

Naomi had left her homeland because of the famine looking for something better in a neighboring country. As she was entering into town one of the women said “Can that be Naomi.” Naomi did not want to be called by her name as she had gone out for a better life and return home a bitter woman. The name Naomi means “Pleasant, delightful, and lovely.” She did not feel like a pleasant, delightful, and lovely woman so she asked to be called Mara, which means “bitter.” She felt as GOD had done her wrong.

Naomi thought GOD did not love her because to her he took everything that meant anything to her and she had nothing left. What she did not know was that there was a method to the madness, and that is what we have to think of sometimes in life is that GOD has us to go through things in order for us to get to where he wants us to be.

Her restoration came through Ruth by her gleaning in Boaz field. Ruth found favor while gleaning. Ruth 3:1 reads, “My daughter, shall I not seek security for you that it may be well with you?” Naomi saw hope at this time, she gave some instructions to Ruth to follow. Doing this is where restoration started coming back for Naomi. To her she had no life left to live. As it is stated in Ruth 4:15 “And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourished of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is better to you than seven sons, has borne him.” Naomi was truly on her way back to being called Naomi again and not Mara.

Can you identify with Naomi? Is there something in your life that has cause you to be very bitter? Do you feel as though you do not have a reason to live?

Here’s what God says about all that seems unrecoverable in your life; Luke 18-27 states that “the things which are impossible with men are possible with GOD” I can’t say how he will do it but he will restore you from that bitter state that you are in. If you see yourself A “Mara”, there is restoration for you, trust me it is not too late. GOD had planned it and he will do it.

While you are going through your transformation from bitter to restoration your name may change, it is because of the purpose and the promise that GOD has on your life. Don’t just sit on what GOD has for you, let him in to guide you in all that you was designed to do and be. Get rid of the negative get rid of the clutter get rid of all that is not of GOD so that you can receive your total and complete restoration.

GOD wants you to know that you have to sometimes go through the wilderness in order to see the greatness that he has for you. Don’t let your yesteryears stop you from being restored into what GOD not MAN but GOD has promised you.

Read the whole book of RUTH and be blessed. GOD Bless You Much Love

Obeying GOD’s Word

Isaiah 61:1-3 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

 

“ARE YOU THE PROVERBS 31 WOMAN – VIRTUOUS WIFE?”

PROVERBS 31 WOMAN – THE VIRTUOUS WIFE

PROVERBS 31 VERSE 10-31 DESCRIBES THE VIRTUOUS WIFE, IF YOU ARE MARRIED I ASK YOU TO STUDY THIS AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE THIS WOMAN IF NOT MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES.  IF YOU ARE SINGLE AND WANTS TO BE THIS VIRTUOUS WIFE ONE DAY YOU CAN START NOW MAKING THE CHANGES. 

Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.  She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands.  She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants.  She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night.  She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle. She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.  She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet.  She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land.  She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants.  Strength and honor are her clothing;  She shall rejoice in time to come.  She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.  Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: “ Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.” Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates. 

GOD BLESS YOU WOMAN OF GOD

“PUTTING ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD”

Image

Ephesians 6:10-20  The Whole Armor of God

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His
might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and
blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the
heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you
may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the
breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the
preparation of the gospel of peace;  above all, taking the shield of faith
with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked
one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which
is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the
Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication
for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I
may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for
which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I
ought to speak.
 

There are six things you can use as the full armor of GOD. These six things
will help you in keeping Satan just where he needs to be, out of your life.
We must first acquire
The Helmet of Salvation which is there to protect
your thoughts so that they will be Christ-like.  In 1 Corinthians 2:16, it states
that “For who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct him?” But
we have the mind of Christ.  As we read in Philippians 2:5 it tells us how our
attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.  I truly believe that we
should examine our thoughts daily to make sure that we are aligning ourselves
with Christ Jesus. As stated in Psalms 23:7 “What a man thinketh so is he so
in order to be Christ-like we must do our best to keep all negative thinking
away. When the enemy tries to invade your thought speak a word to him and
let him know that he has entered the wrong mind and that he needs to move
on.                                                                                                                       

Secondly, we must put on The Breastplate of Righteousness which is
what we need in order to protect our heart as well as other vital organs from
the enemy.  The breastplate was a central part of the Roman soldier’s armor;
it provided protection for the torso, which contains vital organs like the heart,
and lung.  Isaiah 59:17 states that “For He put on righteousness as a
breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of
vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. We should choose
to do what is right in God’s eyes as in 1 Thessalonians 5:8 “But let us who are
of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith, and love, and as a
helmet hope of salvation. It is all right here so why aren’t we abiding by it? 
Riches do not profit in the day of the wrath, but righteousness delivers from
death as read in Proverbs 11:4.  Ephesians 6:13 gives a description as to how
you will wear the breastplate of righteousness.  Therefore take up the whole
armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having
done all, to stand.  Once you have put on the breastplate of righteousness
make sure you do not take it off.  Taking it off will give the enemy a chance to
enter.  

Then we must put on The Sandals of Peace or Shoes for the preparation of
Peace. Let’s look at what is written in Romans 10:14-15 “How then shall they
call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him
of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach unless they are sent? How beautiful are the feet of
those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tiding of good things!” 
Let’s allow the peace of God to rule in our hearts as stated in Colossians 3:
15.  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of
God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in
Christ Jesus” as stated in Philippians 4:6-7.  God cannot give you peace if you
don’t give it all to him. If you give him all he will grant you the desires of your
hearts.

The fourth thing we must do is put on The Belt of Truth; you should ask
Jesus to show you the truth about yourself.  By knowing the truth you will be
free. I don’t know about you but that’s the only way I want to be. So I am
standing on the Word in John 8:32 which says “And you shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.” Thank you Jesus for helping us to become
free. We should pray and ask for the gift of discernment which will help in
knowing the truth about others. There are some spirits that are not of GOD
and some that are, so pray and ask for guidance in knowing the spirit of truth.
This belt is what Jesus used to stand against the enemy and his lies and
deception. We must be anchored in the truth that is found in Jesus in order for
us to win those spiritual battles that will come our way.  

We are almost equipped with the whole armor; The Shield of Faith is where
Jesus is the Focus. Hebrews 11:33-34 states ” who through faith subdued
kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of
lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of the
weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the
armies of the aliens. The Roman Soldier’s used large and small shields to
protect them from arrows during battle. However we only need to trust in
Jesus, he is our shield. Remember in Hebrews 11:1 it states that faith is the
substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Romans 10:
17 says faith comes by hearing the word…Whatever the enemy sends your
way you must truly speak to it and let it know that it will not win this battle. You
have the faith of Jesus which will help you win. This is where you must study to
show yourself approved to fight that enemy.

Lastly, The Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of GOD. All you have to
do is read, study, and believe so that when you are attacked you are
equipped with the Word of GOD. It’s time to set yourself free from whatever is
in your life that will stop you from living in faith and health. The Word of GOD
is the sword here so once you have accepted that Jesus is the way then you
will know that the Word will help you fight your battles.  As stated in Hebrews 4:
12 “For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-
edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and
marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. GLORY.

Let’s meditate on the full armor of GOD and wear it as if it is the most beautiful
outfit you have ever seen in life.    


Father God I come to you right now in prayer, asking that the person
reading this right now will put the full armor on and let the enemy know that he
cannot and will not live within. I pray that he or she will repent and ask for
forgiveness of things done that was not of you Father GOD and to forgive
those who have done wrong unto them. Lord, I ask that you give them
guidance, a Christ-like mind, the truth about themselves as the Holy Spirit
gives discernment, to remove all doubt and temptation. Lord help them to just
be set free from anything that is not of you Lord GOD, in Jesus Name I pray.
AMEN

“Removing The Mask”

2 Corinthians 3:12-18 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are
very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face
to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing
away. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil
remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed,
because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses
is read, a veil covers their hearts.  But whenever anyone turns to the
Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the
Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we all, who with unveiled
faces contemplate[a] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his
image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is
the Spirit.

When is it time to remove the mask?  It is time when you are sick and
tired of being sick and tired and ready to live your life according to
God’s plan for you as well as what you want to be.   All of our lives we
as women are trying to be who our parents and society wants us to
be.  Once you become a wife and mother you then become what you
should be according to what it is said a wife and mother should be.
However, with all that, we fail to realize that we did not take into
account what GOD wants us to be.  In order to be happy with your life
you need to have your own identity and love you.  We put on that
mask while growing up, then when we become that loving wife and
mother.  

Most of us women just forget about what we want to do or be
in life.  We even forget that we should seek GOD for guidance.  Some
of us didn’t even know that we could go to GOD for guidance or that
we had our own voice.  To know what you want, you must first know
who you are.  Get to know yourself first by removing the mask.  

 

Remove that mask and start being the person you were born to be.  
GOD did not put us here to be in bondage and do what others choose
for us to be or do.  Set yourself free and know that GOD is waiting for
you to remove the mask and become that woman that he designed for
you to be.  Removing that mask may take some fasting, praying, and
just seeking GOD.  The only way you are going to be able to do it
successfully is step out on faith and know that GOD has you and that
he is waiting on you so that he can guide you into that awesome
woman he designed you to be before you were even born.

When you know whose you are and who you are, trust me you will
not fail.  Find out your hearts desire and start working on what that is,
if you need training go back to school, whatever it will take then do it
so that you can become who and what GOD designed for  you and
your life.  However, as a wife and mother we will always be that
PROVERBS 31 woman.  Get to know you, I promise you, you will love
you and be like I did not know that about me.  It is a good feeling to be
able to be you according to GOD and not what others want you to be.  

 

Make a commitment with yourself today to start loving and learning
you.  Look in the mirror and tell yourself daily, girl I just love me some
you.  Your life will be so much better as well as those around you life
will be as well.  Verse 17 states “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom,” go after your freedom.

GOD BLESS YOU
