Those scriptures are just a small portion of the mention of FAITH throughout God's Holy Word.  If we look a step further only even in Hebrews, we will discover FAITH in God even in a different light. Hebrews 11:11 states, "And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise".  We encourage you to read that scripture slowly (and truly any scripture that you read) to truly allow God to speak directly to you in regards to what He desires for you to "see" and "hear"...

In this particular scripture it points towards a HUGE reminder that we all need...Sarah's faith was discovered once she "judged HIM FAITHFUL who had promised".  She was more conscious and focused on the Lord's faithfulness instead of her OWN faithfulness. 

It is so vital for us, as believers in Christ Jesus, to focus on the LORD and HIS FAITHFULNESS towards us.  Talk about a pressure release!!  God desires for us to understand that it is not on what WE can do but what HE has and is OVERLY QUALIFIED to do in and through each of our lives! 

Faith- Defined (According to Webster's Dictionary):

You are the Righteousness of God through Jesus!

Psalms 63:7 Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.

  • ​Understand that it is when we feel that we may deserve the punishment and not the blessing that we can then RECEIVE grace *the UNDESERVED FAVOR and UNMERITED HELP OF GOD!
  • Understand that we are able to see God as willing to be our SAVIOR, the moment we cease from trying to be DESERVING of God’s help.
  • When we attempt to work things out on our own, we are attempting to be our own saviors.
  • Example CHECK!
    If I say, “I am weak” – God says, “I am your strength”
    If I say, “Lord, I am not pretty or handsome enough” – God says, “My face will shine on yours. I am your glory”
    If I say, “I am a nobody” – God says, “I will make you a somebody”

*Win the battle in your mind knowing that each and every battle is the Lords.

Proverbs 4 is all about our Heavenly Father's instructions to us- beloved sons and daughters..HEIRS to His Holy Kingdom!  It provides a template of how to receive continuous healing throughout His word which never returns void.  Healing always fulfilled.  Now that truly means it shall take manifest in ways that only God truly provides peace which in turn allows us to gain understanding that surpasses our thoughts. Those instructions sound like Super Hero instructions that clearly are out of THIS world.

Proverbs 4:1-2 AMP version reads:

...And pay attention [and be willing to learn] so that you may gain understanding and intelligent discernment. 2 For I give you good doctrine; Do not [a]turn away from my instruction...

It continues on to discuss Godly wisdom, and understanding and the importance of each throughout our lives.  

Specifically stated here:

  • 5 “Get [skillful and godly] wisdom! Acquire understanding [actively seek spiritual discernment, mature comprehension, and logical interpretation]! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
  •  6 “Do not [b]turn away from her (Wisdom) and she will guard and protect you; Love her, and she will watch over you.
  •  7 “The beginning of wisdom is: Get [skillful and godly] wisdom [it is preeminent]!  And with all your acquiring, get understanding [actively seek spiritual discernment, mature comprehension, and logical interpretation].  
  • 8 “Prize wisdom [and exalt her], and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her. 
  • 9 “She will place on your head a garland of grace;  She will present you with a crown of beauty and glory.” 
  • 10 Hear, my son, and accept my sayings, And the years of your life will be many.  
  • 11 I have instructed you in the way of [skillful and godly] wisdom; I have led you in upright paths.  

Matthew 15:22-28

  • A Canaanite woman pretended to be of Jewish decent by calling out “O Lord, Son of David” (in which only the Jewish community addressed Jesus as “Son of David”), urgently desiring healing for her demon-possessed daughter and came to Jesus, only to not receive an answer UNTIL she simply cried out as herself with a simple “LORD, HELP ME!”

*Depend solely on God’s help.

Anytime phrases are repeated, that surely means to take great heart and note of.  Here it speaks of waiting on God ALONE, not requiring any other validation or assistance.  Knowing that when we wait and REST in peace/silence we are surely REDEEMED (salvation), and ultimately healing takes place in whatever forms that may take (physical, spiritual, emotional, mentally).  We can rely that God alone will be the surety that we can rely and REIGN in as we enter into His salvation and into His STRONG TOWER.  

So referring back to our Hurry up and wait moments mentioned previously, these moments can be blessings in "disguise" if you will, as in these moments greatness and revelation can spring forth within our thoughts and as mentioned, in our moments of "actions-in-physical-stillness".  You see, the hurry up and wait cliche can be utilized effectively as God moments to try Psalm 62.  Breathing and reflecting on what God may desire to reveal to you possibly about your day or what/who you may encounter.  We would encourage you to take those Hurry up and wait moments as blessings...cherish those moments.  They are blessings and moments to run into our STRONG TOWER to reign in Jesus not only for today, but for LIFE!

Receiving God's Faith For You.

Healthy Relationships Study notes

Healing is for YOU!

If God was willing to provide His grace to a Gentile, how much more will he provide for you, His BELOVED child?

*make the choice of not wandering (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually) Allow the Holy Spirit to guide and lead you

Isaiah 53:5 says something so profound.

But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing];
The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him,
And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed.

Now what does that look like in our lives today?

Transgressions covered= CHECK....

Wickedness/Sins/Injustice/wrongdoings covered= CHECK

Punishment covered...CHECK.


So what does the word of God remind us of our WHOLENESS and HEALING when His word is received within our lives today?  IT IS COVERED...IT IS MANIFESTED...IT IS FINISHED.  He covers any of the WOUNDS, any attempts of CRUSHING (whether it be our spirits or physically), any PUNISHMENT....YOU ARE COVERED...HEALING SHALL MANIFEST, and any healing required IS COMPLETE- IT IS FINISHED. AMEN!

Remain steadfast in these CHECKPOINTS throughout your journey called life today!

Faith- Described/Defined (According to the Holy Bible):

The Power of Looking to Jesus.

  • We must understand that at that time, the Jewish people considered Gentiles dogs; HOWEVER, Jesus stated that although He was called to the Jewish people first, He loved the Gentile people enough to provide a way for them to receive their miracles.

*Come just as you are & receive 

​​The word SUCCESS can take the form of several different things for everyone.  Success defined is the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame and/or the correct or desired result of an attempt- synonymous with affluential.

So it appears that we could generally say that success is centered around achievementand desires.  Two areas that are clearly variable to any given person.  What does achievement resemble in your life?  What are your desires? Now...take it a GIANT step forward and ask- what does achievement resemble throughout the life of JESUS?  What are His desires for YOU?

That is the basis of understanding this walk and journey in life.  It is one level of success that the entirety of the world can view as success and there is another GIANT level of success that the portions of the world can view as success.  The reason for partiality?

​GIANT levels of Success can only be delivered by the one true and living God

Maybe to keep us centered on God's level of G.I.A.N.T. success, we can recall it as such:






​Let's take a look at John 1: 1-17

Hear, See, Speak no ________ ....(look, we didn't even want to TYPE it) we all may be all too familiar with this well known image displayed here.  Despite your view or explanation for the phrase, it is important to take note of one truth - our faith as believers in Jesus Christ gives us the power through the Holy Spirit to hear, see, and speak that which has been DECLARED over our lives by Jesus as our Lord and Savior.  How amazing to take heart on this TRUTH! 

Romans 8:27-30 states this:  

27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers[l] in harmony with God’s own will. 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together[m] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn[n] among many brothers and sisters.30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. (NLT version)

How awesome is that?!  To know that God knows each of us and our hearts...because of this He goes before us, as chosen sons and daughters, and has proclaimed His glory over our lives- so in turn we can HEAR BOLDLY, SEE BOLDLY, and SPEAK BOLDLY in the power and glory of God because it is CLEARLY so!  Romans 8:28- God causes EVERYTHING to work together for YOU because you have chosen to love God and accept His purpose for you!  

Living Healed and Whole.


Such a phenomenal word...almost seemingly untouchable to the natural eye....


The word alone is so powerful that it truly tends to leave our mouths with an extra oomph...almost changing the "taste" of anything that follows.


Hmm. It just may be UNTOUCHABLE to the natural eye...but what about our Heavenly Fathers' eyes?

Oftentimes, like this patch, we may feel as if our bruises from our past are displayed for the world to see.  The good news is that regardless of what people may see with their physical eyes, God truly sees you whole, unbruised, unshaken, whole, HEALED. So when He says you are that you assuredly are...HEALED. 

Some scriptures for reflecting and thought include:

God is Your Strength....

Ephesians 6:10-20 KJV

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 

11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 

12 For we[d] are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.

14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 

15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.[e] 

16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.[f] 

17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.[g]
19 And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.[h]

20 I am in chains now, still preaching this message as God’s ambassador. So pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for him, as I should.

By Jesus Stripes you are healed...

Isaiah 53:3-5 KJV

3 He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.  He was despised, and we did not care.
4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;it was our sorrows[a] that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins!
5 But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.He was whipped so we could be healed.

Jesus desires for you to boldly declare His healing over you and speak just that-

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I am truly grateful for all that you represent throughout my life.  I accept that because my sins are forgiven and ultimately HEALED, You have HEALED me from anything that proceeds after healing of the sins from my past.  I no longer desire to dwell in the past sins as that place is forever erased and I am not-I am just beginning and never erased. Thank you Jesus for accepting me and continuing to surround me with Your everlasting love, strength, joy and peace.  Whatever is needed I trust You have already supplied.  I stand releasing all that I have in order to RECEIVE all that YOU have for me.  I thank you for manifesting Your unfailing word of healing over my life and my loved ones lives in Jesus name. Amen.

2 Chronicles 20:15
"Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude for the battle is not yours, but God’s"

God truly desires the BEST for you.  

You are His beloved son or daughter.

You are heir to His Kingdom.

He gave His son just for you to live and live FOREVER.

​Psalms 95 (KJV) says: 

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

The Power of Words.

  • When challenges arise, instead of relying on our “doing” rely on Jesus to fight for us.
  • Do what the situation requires being guided by the Holy Spirit and rest and trust in God’s mercy that endures forever.
  • Stand still and SEE the salvation of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 20:15, 17)

Here's to Healing:

12 When you walk, your steps will not be impeded [for your path will be clear and open]; And when you run, you will not stumble.  13  Take hold of instruction; [actively seek it, grip it firmly and] do not let go.  Guard her, for she is your life....20 My son, pay attention to my words and be willing to learn;  Open your ears to my sayings.  21 Do not let them escape from your sight; Keep them in the center of your heart.  22 For they are life to those who find them, And healing and health to all their flesh.  23 Watch over your heart with all diligence,  For from it flow the springs of life. 24 Put away from you a deceitful (lying, misleading) mouth, And put devious lips far from you.  25 Let your eyes look directly ahead [toward the path of moral courage] And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you [toward the path of integrity].  26 Consider well and watch carefully the path of your feet, And all your ways will be steadfast and sure.  27 Do not turn away to the right nor to the left [where evil may lurk]; Turn your foot from [the path of] evil.

a word that often seems larger than life.  Seems larger than life challenges that we encounter...

  • Strong belief or trust in someone or something 


So it is important to realize that we can stand BOLDLY and know that God's presence is constant in our lives and we can daily and within any given moment expect His presence and therefore praise God for it.  He is always with you, always speaking, always aware of your needs and desires, and always willing to speak with you.   We encourage you to keep your minds on God in order to enter in HIS rest.  When we can focus on God, rest is revealed and demonstrated throughout our lives.

​​How to Rest in the Father’s Love?! 

Furthermore, also note that in Romans 8:1-4:
1  So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power[a] of the life-giving Spirit has freed you[b]from the power of sin that leads to death. 3 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature.[c] So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.

So not only can you take heart in the BOLDNESS of GODS GLORY being revealed in what we hear, see and speak- but also take heart and courage in the truth that there is FREEDOM in His Glory revelation!  Even if what has been said, heard, seen, done....before did not reveal God's Glory for you and for others according to Romans 8:1 there is NO CONDEMNATION for you when you ACCEPT Jesus as your Lord and Savior, so you are FREE from things heard in the past that did not reveal God's glory, FREE from things previously seen in the past that weren't revealing of God's present expectations for you and certainly FREE from past words spoken over you and/or from your own mouth......God's ultimate GLORY shall be revealed in your life today and everyday! In Jesus Name, AMEN!

  • At that time, it was not time for the Gentiles to receive His blessings.  He told her “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs” BUT the Greek word used in the original translation by Jesus means “puppy” which is an affectionate term and NOT offensive...

Relax. Relate. RELEASE!

Up, Up, and AWAY!!! Just as a balloon floats away quickly on a clear, blue-skied and sunny day....tossed into the wind, in various directions, reaching its undisclosed destination someday...

Now envision that same balloon as representation of AUTHORITY in your life.

What would that balloon truly resemble? This heart-shaped balloon? One of those witty balloons that reads "Over the Hill"? Or maybe even the beloved life-sized Winnie the Pooh balloon? 

Whatever the size/shape of the balloon, fortunately when it comes to AUTHORITY in Christ, none of these descriptions truly matter.  Jesus has not been one to determine the strength of people/places/things based upon outward appearances (thank You Jesus for that).

But let's now consider what AUTHORITY truly means.​ ​AUTHORITY defined:
a) the power to give orders or make decisions : the power or right to direct or control someone or something; b) the confident quality of someone who knows a lot about something or who is respected or obeyed by other people; c) a quality that makes something seem true or real

  • Therefore the woman was NOT offended and knew then that she would receive healing for her daughter because even puppies get to eat what falls from their masters’ table.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank You Jesus for revelation of your strength throughout our lives.  We are grateful for Your willingness to even desire to save us and demonstrate to not only others but to ourselves, Your external and amazing power and authority over anything that attempts to interrupt the flow of Your wonderful handiwork!  Anything unlike Your name Jesus must flee and submit to Your authority and because You are residing inside of me Jesus, that authority is exemplified throughout my life and those that are connected to me in Jesus name.  As your word has declared we echo what the word prayed:  From Your glorious, unlimited resources we praise You Lord that You will empower me with inner strength through Your Holy Spirit.  Thank You Jesus that I allow and receive You, like a home in my heart as I trust in You Jesus. I thank You Heavenly Father that Your love shall grow and be rooted just to keep me strong. And may I trust Your power working inside of me, to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love truly is.  Thank you Jesus, for I shall be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from You, God- *and now I proclaim and declare all glory to You God, who is able, through Your mighty power at work within me, to accomplish infinitely MORE than I might ask or think according to Your matchless and Holy name JESUS. AMEN!

*(Ephesians 3:20)

The Deity of Jesus Christ
1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and [b]the Word was God Himself. 2 He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. 3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. 4 In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines on in the [c]darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].  6 There came a man commissioned and sent from God, whose name was [d]John.7 This man came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe [in Christ, the Light] through him. 8 John was not the Light, but came to testify about the Light. 9 There it was—the true Light [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] which, coming into the world, enlightens everyone. 10 He (Christ) was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. 11 He came to that which was His own [that which belonged to Him—His world, His creation, His possession], and those who were His own [people—the Jewish nation] did not receive and welcome Him. 12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— 13 who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].

How much does god love you?

So in consideration of what AUTHORITY actually entails from God's amazing Word, we can restassured  that when we receive Jesus into our heart and truly believe He resides there, we can stand BOLDLY and release that REAL and TRUE "balloon of FAITH and POWER" into any atmosphere acknowledging the power of God ordering and commanding His love/strength/peace/power unto every situation and all who are willing to receive Him!

*Make the Choice of not worrying.

Matthew 6:27
"Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?"

  • Allow the love of God to free us from worry
  • Worry free living allows God’s anointing to strengthen, heal, restore, and add to your life.
  • Place confidence in God’s love and power working for you than in the devils ability to harm you
  • First account of the word FAITH in the Holy Bible- ​Genesis 15;6 ​- And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith.
  • Galatians 2:20- ​I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 
  • Galatians 2:15-16 - 15“We who are Jews by birth and not sinful Gentiles 16 know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified.
  • Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
  • Hebrews 12 - Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Release Your Authority.


Matthew 15:27
“And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table”

  • Lean on God’s unfailing and unconditional love for you
  • You do not need to pretend to be more than what you are to receive the blessings from God
  • Simply lean on Jesus’ compassion for you (and not who you may have “become”) and receive all that you need.​

The Word Made Flesh
14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception). 15 John testified [repeatedly] about Him and [e]has cried out [testifying officially for the record, with validity and relevance], “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me [f]has a higher rank than I and has priority over me, for He existed before me.’” 16 For out of His fullness [the superabundance of His grace and truth] we have all received grace upon grace [spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift]. 17 For the Law was given through Moses, but grace [the unearned, undeserved favor of God] and truth came through Jesus Christ.

To understand this amazing word and ultimately success is to understand that God represents victory and success.  His life represents the epitome of success and continuous gain! Look to Jesus for the GIANT in Jesus to manifest within your life!  God is affluential NOW and TODAY for you!

Step right up folks! Step right please?

Sounds like the beginning of a fun ride for certain right? May or may not sound familiar dependent on the dialect that is used within your region but hopefully you catch the drift of where this type of phrasing may be used? You got it..a county fair, theme park, or some other adventure-filled event.

Tickets are purchased for various events and typically come with a price...tag. Typically.  

And let's be honest, most often when events are free we are interested but when something has a cost we tend to place a bit more value towards that event. Funny how that works.  We absolutely LOVE free however.  

What if we told you that there is a ticket for abundant and eternal life in which the value is PRICELESS and the price tag was FREE?

Enter 2 Corinthians 5:21 AMP.  He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf (as our sin offering), so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God (as our burnt offering) [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness].

So when we place our faith in Jesus and His sacrifice of dying on the cross for us, our sins were transferred to Jesus and His righteousness was transferred to us. Jesus is both our sin and burnt offering.

Mind. Blown.

We have the ticket to eternal life and abundance in whatever our Heavenly Father has and there is no need to pay for it physically, mentally, is already PAID in FULL, it is already FINISHED, and it is FREE.  FULL. FINISHED. FREE. Just for you. Just for you.

Jesus desires for you to daily claim His offering to you and speak just that-

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank You for being my burnt offering and all that Jesus represents (righteousness, perfection, excellence, victorious) has been transferred to me. Jesus is the righteousness of God, so I am the righteousness of God in Christ. Thank you Father for this priceless and most valuable gift. Amen.

Rest and YOU WILL reign in life.

Hebrews 4:10-11
“…he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.  Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest…”

  • The Christian walk begins like that of a baby…
  • …it begins with SITTING. (Ephesians 2:6 God “raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus”
  • So, how well we walk is dependent on how well we SIT and REST in the finished works of Christ.
  • Rest inwardly and believe that the work is finished, trusting in God’s undeserved favor toward us.
  • Today we must believe that the work of Jesus is truly complete and finished…​​

Rest and Receive THE BEST God has for You.

Walking in Success with God.

Speak FAITH. Your words have power.

The KEY to healing is in God's Word.

Ever played SCRABBLE? Okay. So, we understand that there are so many other word games that have been developed since the "scrabble days", but insert any word based game there, if you will. The object of the game is to gather the most points by playing words on a board that you connect to words created by other players.  Kinda cool and really interesting game!  It truly is a game that can either be a "breeze" or super challenging depending on various factors such as, the letters you have, the fellow players (and their wit), and sheer knowledge of vocabulary, to name a few- oh and lets not forget about generosity!

As in SCRABBLE, our words hold value.

Some professional SCRABBLE players, dedicate an extensive amount of time studying two major areas:

a) words in the dictionary- treating their words as "weapons", in the school of thought that the more words that you know the better your "arsenal" will be. AND,

b) the power or value of the specific wordsstudied (FUN FACT: Oxyphenbutazone is the scrabble word to play with an assuming 1778 points)

Who knew that a word game could be so serious to even have the title PROFESSIONAL? But in reality it holds true to what Jesus has made clear throughout the Word of God which is provided throughout various scriptures such as:

Proverbs 18: 21 KJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Our words hold value, they hold power.  Life represented through our words are in the form of our "hello's" to complete strangers or our "I appreciate you's" to those that we work alongside daily.  And lets not forget the "I apologize"(s).  Those all hold life not only for those that are receiving the words, but for you as well.  When we release LIFE from our tongue we are releasing Jesus to activate throughout our day and lives.  After all, that is what Jesus represents...the way, truth and the LIFE.

Will you release LIFE through your words today?

2 Corinthians 3 KJV

3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort ;4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Ever just walk outside one day and look up? 

If you haven't tried that yet, we encourage you to do so.  In that moment it almost seems as if time stands still and the reality of just how massively amazing  this world is strikes your mind. 

Now imagine you were in the clouds (for instance) looking down towards us here on the earth.  Think how tiny we would appear.  Or just look outside of the window the next time you are inside an airplane...

That's what I imagine Jesus' view point would be; however, not what His perspective nor thoughts towards us would be at all.

Because we have an ABBA Father that created this world and everything inside of it, if we look to Him we realize that His thoughts are so much more massive than ours. His ways are not our ways. They EXCEED them.

So the next time there seems to be various situations occurring of different magnitudes remember to LOOK UP to remind yourself of the MAGNITUDE of Jesus and it shall always supersede the "magnitude" of your situation. Always.

Philippians 4:19 I have no lack for my God supplies all of my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:17 I have received the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus, the eyes of my understanding being enlightened.

​Hurry up and WAIT...

Oftentimes our lives can seem like that is the concept.  Especially if you happen to live in a large city with millions of people residing there.  Traffic is daily, hourly, by the minute and quite frankly NON-STOP.  Hurry up because the traffic awaits?

It's important to note that even in the aspect of waiting in our respected vehicles or in lines at, I don't know, say the DMV... we can utilize that moment to "do" a couple of things.  But to recognize that it is within these "actions-in- physical- stillness" moments in which God can promote rather life- altering moments to MOVE and SHIFT things. Let's take a look at Psalm 62.

Psalm 62 is all about WAITING...and ultimately RESTING on the fact that God is strength enough to surpass any of our own or any of this world or the enemy for that matter.

It repeats a couple of phrases here, specifically at Psalm 62:1-2, 5-6 which reads (AMP version):

For God alone my soul waits in silence;
From Him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
My defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken or disheartened.
