In the eye of the storm….A Miracle Story!

IRMA SNAKETHIS is a True story….

My friends in Fla last year were faced with quite the decision when 
a hurricane warning came to their area. They work at a trailer park 
and began to receive warnings about a big storm (Irma). They are 
prayer warriors and follow God’s will for their lives, no holds barred. 
 
At some point as the threat was increasing, some officals came, and
said there is a mandatory evacuation. My friends and the persons at 
the park were told they needed to leave, or they would die. 

The saints would not be moved and stood their ground, even asking 
the Lord the power would not go out. As the wall of the hurricane 
came barrelling toward them, they prayed and put their hope and trust
in God. Not only were they not destroyed, and no lives were lost-but 
the power did not go out. 

Many did comply with the evacuation but a few did not.

God’s faithfulness
to his word once again prevailed “in the eye of the storm.” 

(Shared with permission)- It was on my heart to share this testimony 
about how God came through in a situation that was life or death. There
was very minimal damage to the park, and can we just give a shout of 
glory for people who trust God, stand their ground and pray?  LG 

 

Halleluiah! Glory to God! we praise you Father for your wonderful works! 
 
Psalm 107: 30-32 
 
He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.

Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.

Building with Precious things …..#12 Taking Risks & The resistance of the faithless when you do……

Risk: “A situation involving exposure to danger.” RISK.jpg

I have taken a lot of risks in my life time. I did before I met Jesus, and I did it even more “after” I started to know him. Jesus always seemed draw people out into situations that involved Risk. Risky business! (this serving Jesus!) to be sure. 

I know one of the many things God has called me to do, is exhort people to do just what it says in Psalm 118:8. “Trust in God, not in Man.” Is it easy (to do?) certainly not! It’s not hard at all if someone agrees with me, but if they don’t? Man, that can be difficult! 

I am not a person who loves to fight, argue, or debate. I don’t thrive on that kind of stuff. Therefore, if someone is all upset with me (about my faith stance) I find myself saying Okay Father what is this all about? What do I say? How should I handle this? 

I’ll give you an example: When my kids were young, we often had situations where my spouse quite his job (every year or every few months) I was the stay at home mom for the most part, as I could not And I mean could not find a babysitter for us both to work. I figured it out it was cheaper for me to stay home, than to pay a baby sitter for 2 kids and make at that time, 7.00 per hour. We had ONE car. When my spouse worked I had to stay home as nobody was going to buy us a second car and babysitting was amost 5.00 per hour at the time for a good one. No “Welfare” would not help. 

So then we were poor, and could not buy what we needed at times. People would hear about it (some from church) and help but then I got lectures. “You need to work too” they said. Not one of them offered to babysit, (on a regular basis). If I worked and my spouse stayed home, the kids were not safe. They told me about “Man’s help” such as government programs.

They said I could ride ‘The shuttle bus” but when I checked on it, it didn’t work for the days I was scheduled to work. So I would say “I”m trusting God” and it would lead to going to whatever provision he gave me. I was at risk and my kids were at risk and when God would provide, people would say “What are you going to do next time?” Next time? I was hoping there wasn’t a next time! But, there always was a next time that I had to trust God for something. 

You see I HAD read my bible. I read in Revelation “I counsel you to buy from me gold” (Revelation 3:18) and I PRAYED FOR THAT to happen “I want Gold Father more than I want anything else, Gold from you! Gold from Heaven!” (Read Rev 3:18). 

So now, when I tell people what I went through, and how God provided, I get this attitude at times from people. “Shaking their heads” and anylizing my decisions back then. 

Faith makes people feel threatened. Having FAITH In God makes some very uncomfortable.

Sometimes it’s jealousy, other times they are just skeptical. Every time I stood for a miracle, I felt others were watching me as if it were some spectator sport. 

Some did follow my example, but for the most part I got this “Let me know how that goes for you attitude.” When I came out okay, they thought I was just lucky (perhaps). 

Nobody is going to get a Testimony without a test. We aren’t going to have miracles without taking risks, either. I can’t make anyone listen to me. As the years tick by, I find that many have grown cold to such possiblities (Miracles) because they think it only happens on the television set, and maybe those preachers are just doing some magic trick to bring in money (for themselves). 

God’s not going to do things on our terms. He never has, and he never will. HE calls the shots about how, when and where, and our part is to trust him. 

There are times having faith (for that miracle) is going to seem like “more trouble than it’s worth.” At times it seems silly to believe for one, when all you have to do is go along with the staus quo, and nobody will think you are too radical, too wierd, too crazy. 

Still, the mandate is the same. Psalm 118:8 “It’s better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.” that means “even yourself.” 

Why is it better? Because when you need to believe for a miracle, you’ll have had some practice and experience at it. pray with me if you dare. “Father I want to have a testimony of GOLD in my life. GOLD (of faith) that can come only from you. I want some precious testimonies to build on the foundation of your Holy word that I am saved, but now Father I want something more…….Please help me to achieve this in you. IN Jesus’ precious name…...amen.

Building in God #3 Walking on Water..and out of thin air!

walking on waterI wouldn’t be where I am today without God (this I know).

As I look back I see so many times I really was a “water walker” but I did not see it then. I am reminded of the time I had no clothes dryer, we live in an apartment in Minnesota. If you’ve ever lived there, it’s pretty hard to get your clothes dry in a damp basement.

I called the used appliance store and purchased a washer but they had no dryers. I said Father you are big enough to bring me a dryer! Out of thin air! After I said that I went about my business.

A couple of days later I smelled gas in the house and the maintenance man was called, and came over. He said:

“it looks like you are getting settled in.” I said yes If I had a dryer my life would be complete. He said “Someone moved of another apartment and left their dryer behind, I don’t know if it works, do you want it?

“Sure,” I said. He went and got it for me (not his job)

And sure enough, it worked! We Moved there with 2 kids, 17 large boxes, and NO furniture. My son was crying “will I have a bed?” My mom gave us a bed, the Baptist church gave us a bed after we got there. We were even given a car! (Wow) …

I can still see that guy standing in front of the church saying “I’ve had this car for a long time, praying about who to give it to” And I’m going to give it to them” (and handed me the keys).

When we moved to Minnesota, I had to sell our car to afford the Uhaul. We had to move there, my ‘ex” had caused us to lose our place to live and we literally had no place to go except “this one place” where the door opened up for us so we had to go. I was studying how God opens doors no man can shut and this one door opened…….so we went!

I had searched and searched for an apartment where we lived and none could be found (and he had caused us to be evicted).

The point Is I said “You will provide” and i refused to believe any different. that was during the time God was giving me the 3 P’s. I am your provider, protector and I Prosper you. Prosperity is ANYTHING OVER WHAT YOU NEED!

In the land of Milk and Honey it was ……Milk and honey, houses and land. A place to Grow Vineyards! not fancy vacations or big fancy cars.

Don’t tell me God doesn’t do miracles. I know better!! (and that is just one story out of many many many …….) #godisgood #testimoniesofGod

Christmas Story #9 Angels on the Tree

12 days 8.jpg

Christmas story #8 Angels on the Tree

I wanted angels on the tree, 
and actually prayed for this, you see……..

A friend of mine loaned me hers ……
12 lighted angels…..stem to stern

So I’d just sit and look at them, 
Both Looking forward, and “remembering when” 
I thought of angels, anouncing his birth, 
And I thought about, how much we are worth.

That Jesus would come,for little ol’ me 
and help me have angels……upon my tree.

When Giants Have to Fall…..

giants Good Morning! 

Facing any giants today? Monsterous Fears Maybe? 

You know, this may suprise you but …people don’t just wake up one day and realize “Hey I’m a giant slayer!”

Even those of us who DO stand up to those supposed “powers of darkness” had our days of fear and trembling, shaking and quaking, and wondering what to do next. Maybe King David was blessed in that, he did not have to listen to the news on TV every day, and hear about how many stood up to a giant and got killed in the process. See: We have it easier than David in someways (we live in New Testament times) but in other ways, we have it harder. Life was simpler in the days of King David, but the choice has always been the same. Trust God, or not Trust God. 

I do not mean idly sitting by, watching to see what God will do next…….

I’ve been writing messages for months now, as I face my own giants. I have faced many, in my time. 

This time, it was cancer. Oh yes, the big C. The name of the giant is different, the victory over it is the same. One day we will all face that last giant (death) And when God decides it’s our time, we’ll see that one defeated too, as we enter heaven forever, rejoicing. 

after King David slayed the giant, he faced a bigger one. Saul’s Jealousy and Rage.

Before he became King, He was chased around by Saul, who was so upset at David’s Victories, his own realization his time was short (as King) that he wanted to literally murder David. David’s men begged him to kill Saul, but he would not do it.  

I could talk for hours about how I came to the conclusions I have (about Faith) but you wouldn’t likely read it all (unless I write another book) and I don’t have time. What I will say is this: “The Holy Spirit” Has a lot he wants to teach you……

Will you take the time? The other thing is: Becoming a Giant Slayer takes time. David was out in the fields tending the sheep, meditating on God’s truths and principles. He was prepared for his day in the sun (and the days in the dark as well.) I don’t care what the giant’s name is, the answers is the Same. GOD! 

If you looked out the window and saw a stray dog molesting your child, you would grab whatever you could, run out there, and beat the thing half to death. GET OFF MY CHILD! 

When we face ANYTHING that threatens to destroy us the answer is the same……..

SATAN, GET OFF MY CHILD!!! In Jesus’ name! What weapon you use hardly matters. David used the one he was most comfortable with (A sling and a stone). Maybe your weapon is prayer, declarations …..speaking VICTORY SINGING …….What matters is to have a heart like David and realize “WHO ARE YOU DEVIL” TO torment the people of God? WHO ARE YOU (sickness, cancer, premature death, lack, poverty, etc) WHO ARE YOU OH MOUNTAIN? (to stand in the way of God?). 

As giant slayers…..we may have different styles. The important thing is: do we understand this concept? GOOD GOD (Very Good Father) vs BAD DEVIL (who hates us)

WHO wants to kill, steal and destroy? Not God! 

Jesus said: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”
John 10:10 
 
Father make them giant slayers today (all of your People Lord God) Let it get in them once and for all YOU have given us all we need in you to defeat every giant! in Jesus’ name! Amen   Laura Grace Author, Grace to the Rescue series

Gods’ Grace to my Rescue……100 x 100 x 100…………and its happening now.

Book_Mockup1 It’s happening! (Now) This prophecy I received in May 2017 or Word of Knowledge rather ”

Which said: AMEN!!! Let it begin… The $100 will come in x100 ways with x100 people! Get ready (Chad Taylor) 

Genesis 26:12 
“Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the LORD blessed him.”
I don’t believe in these mass words to people that if you give or sow you (all be blessed) because God is into relationship, dealing with individual people, and every case is just a little different. If that were not so, our bibles would be really short, and we would not have all these various examples of Faith, expressions of Faith, and there would not be talk of People hearing from God, following his example, and so on and so forth.
 
For this journey called life in Jesus there is no “one size fits all roadmap.” There is you, him and the journey before you. Even when the discples asked about John “what about him’ Jesus said YOU “Follow me!” ……and did not even answer their question. What grace was shown to them as they challenged the master (with many questions) but that is how they learned from him! Jesus did not pass out pamphlets and say “Here are the 10 commandments of following me” Now ……GO …….
 
In May of this year I had applied for unemployment, got cut off suddenly (Because the computer system saw I worked at a school, and assumed I was going back to that job) because see I fell through the cracks AGAIN!. This has happened to me a lot in life I think it’s because God wants me to help those who seem to “fall through the cracks” And their story is just different, they don’t have “NORMAL” Things work for them. In Fact their life is not normal at all! Not the Status Quo, doesn’t’ fit the every day bill (and so on and so forth) so without further waiting I will tell you the rest of the story.
WHEN My unemployment was cut off and we had no way out and not enough money to make our bills I was touched in my heart to give 100.00 to this ministry. it was hard for me to obey, because it sounded crazy, stupid and like I had lost my mind! This urging inside me to do it was quieter than my brain that said “That can’t be God is that you God?”And truly if I had not studied my bible and learned TO GET GOD OUT OF THE Box
(of religion or things I was taught) I would not have given the 100.00 that day………
So the words in Purple above was what was told to me: “Get Ready” 100.00 x 100 ways from 100 people. I don’t know the time span, will it all happen this year? I have no idea.
I do know so far I’ve had four times of 100.00 being handed to me out of the blue. Not a paycheck, not because I asked for it, it just “Happened” ……..and yes four different people too and four different situations. In every case so far, it was also needed for something.
No I do not tithe in the traditional way. I just say all I have is yours Father, all I have is yours. And I mean it too. When I give most of the time it’s cheerfully, and by the time I gave that 100.00 that day I was cheerful cause it dawned on me “You cannot outgive God” IF HE tells you do do something Which can be just this urging in your spirit man
to just DO IT ……
He will bless you for it. You can’t out give him. You really can’t. I think God in his infinite Mercy, is trying to teach me NOT TO BE AFRAID To give or to follow him or to do things the way he tells me to do it. His love is incredible, his Mercy abounds
and his Grace as well! Please remember this is not a formula…..
It’s a Journey! It’s a Relationship! He’s your FATHER …….And he loves us SO MUCH! 
Father, for those who want to live in the supernatural today, for those who want a testimony from you, for those who say show me Father that I can ‘walk on water” In my own way……For those who just want to SEE Your power at work in their lives Father help them believe today for that miracle, that provision, that blessing that healing whatever it is Father they need from you Today! Let them abide (in you) and Not give up! IN Jesus’ name we pray Father, and Amen.
