Praying like a Rock Star (Holy Spirit, Come!)

Why do we like Rock Stars?

And why do so many want to be one, but never get there?

Rock stars become stars- because they hit the nail on the head (somewhere) they are hitting on what people are feeling, experiencing, wanting & desiring!

Yesterday I asked the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me…Yes I was seriously talking to HIM (Holy Spirit, come, please lead and guide me!” …..

Now that prayer is not in our bibles but, I did it anyway. I know He is a PERSON not a thing! 

I then prayed for my someone, and prayed what I felt LED to pray vs what my brain wanted to pray (which is always safe, and not risky!!)

That person was moved to tears- and God touched him, because of that prayer. It was God! (his WILL being manifested through my prayer time). The Lord literally showed me how that person was feeling, and I said it out loud……

That, to me, is praying like a Rock Star! Not for money, not for fame, but many people just do what they know people need from them (and become famous, as a result). Jesus was one of them. In Fact, He showed us the way!

Father, give us more of this we pray! We hunger and thirst after you, Father God. We hunger and thirst, after you! I ask you to touch every person out there today- who is led to pray a certain way, but their mind is questioning things.

Set them free Father, from the chains that bind and Free their Mind! Help them to be Brave Father, and pray the way your Spirit leads them to pray. In Jesus’ mighty name!” Amen –Laura Grace,Author, Grace to Grow. http://www.lauragracebooks.com

You are not insignificant……

God’s Banqueting table on this Earth is a lot like a Potluck. Everyone of God brings something to the table. All we have to do is listen, and “taste and see,” if it’s good or not. If someone brings (spiritual food) that is not good, we will soon know it!

We need to get past the mind-set that only pastors, or big name preachers, or “certain people’ prepare God’s food!

He brought me to the banqueting house, And his banner over me was love.” song of solomon 2:4 NKJV

When People say they have “no need of you” and you are God’s representative, it’s often their loss, and not an indicator that you have been disapproved by God. Keep Pressing on! God loves you, he is so proud of you- when you put your heart and soul into something for him!  He’s always watching!

God Paid for My School!

Where God Guides, He Provides!

God Paid for My Schooling! I remember when I started to study (and pray) and refused to work full-time, because if I did, I wouldn’t have time for this intenstive training with God. He let me know at that time, “Where he guides, he Provides.”

I prayed about where to go to school, checked out a whole bunch of schools, and finally settled on Liberty Univerisity Online.

How I remember the day I signed up (I was so scared!). Here I was, in my 50’s, wondering how I would possibly pay the debt. I did get some grants, but in the end, I had 15,000 in Student Loans.

In spite of my faith, my flesh did scream, “What are you going to do, Laura?”

Just in the nick of time (as usual) God came through for me. I was one month away from having to make payments, and something unexpected happened. Something Good, Something wonderful! He paid my debt.

I have never known How God would provide, but I know he has always provided. He can use any ol’ thing he wants to use! Jobs, Rummage Sales, People who suddenly give us money out of the clear blue sky for no apparent reason. One time, my daughter gambled her last 5.00 in desperation, and God caused her to win enough to pay for her rent.

(Before you roll your eyes over this, remember that Elijah was fed by a Raven (a very unclean bird according to my bible.)

God will equip you for every great work (in Him). I don’t care if it’s your Job, Schooling, Whatever it is he wants you to do, He WILL equip you! You can count on it!

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

I’ve watched him provide for my children with Backpacks, Clothing, anything you can name, God has provided it in various ways.. I’m talking about leading me to a 2.00 backpack when all I had was 2.00, or having someone give me a box of “stuff” and at the bottom of the stuff, was just what I needed for work, or for something else. It’s incredible! And all I had to do was trust him, and stand with him on the promises in his Word!

Yes, he does provide! Not only that, usually in abundance!

Praise his Holy Name! -Laura Grace

He Paid the Price, IN Advance, for your learning in Him…..

God just said (to me) he paid the price for our mistakes at the Cross. He’s got us covered, in advance for every mistake we would ever make. What we call failure, he calls learning, and “His School.”

He paid the price in advance, for every mistake he knew we would make, & He’s got us covered. He doesn’t hold us accountable to make grown up decisions until we are all grown up in Him.”

So now, forgive yourself and stop worrying….His love redeemed you before you ever got into debt financially or otherwise.” -Laura Grace

The closest scriptural referrence I can give you right now is 2 Corn 10 when Paul said “once your obedience in complete.” God decides when we are grown up and accountable. We are not to even Judge Ourselves Harshly. -LG

When the enemy uses our faith against us…..

When the enemy uses our faith against us: Laura Grace

“Fear” about not having enough faith! Yes that happens too! The enemy of our souls stops at nothing. He doesn’t care how he “gets us”. Here we are trying to do the right thing and having faith with all our hearts an he says “well you must not have any or enough Faith, as nothing is happening right now.”

We look around, and feel like maybe we should just agree. I was crying and praying as i was driving yesterday after singing “My fear doesn’t stand a chance when I stand in your love, Father God.”

A messenger of God said (and I watched his video), “God can do exceedingly above all you ask or think, and his Mercy is so great, just so great, and his love is so great, I’m not sure we will ever fully understand it.” …..I grabbed hold of that, and said “Father I believe you will do exceedingly above all we ask or think!” Shortly after this, “everything changed.”

Someimes The Lord causes us to shift over to a different stance in Faith. Sometimes we are too focused on battling the problem, and we just need to look to Him and have faith that he is good, and his Mercy is great as well!

God has an answer for you today! let HIM guide you by his spirit and may I suggest you forsake those “faith recipes.” Our journey with God as individuals will be unique. Relationship with Him is the key here, not how “great we are” in having Faith. Whenever we trust God, we are indeed, having Faith in Him. Peace be with you! -Laura Grace

Ephesians 3:19-21

to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him beglory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.
