Victoria Boyson: You Create Your World!

speak lifeYou Create Your World! November - It's Our Time to Push and Travail to Give Birth!

God created the world with His words, and we can do the same with ours! Truly, we create the world we live in by the words we speak. Think about the last five words you've spoken. Are they words you would like to become manifest in your world?
The life of God, the very breath of God, is dwelling and living in us. His breath is alive. It has the power of life existing in it, and that is the life He breathed into us when we were born. We are the vessels of the breath of God – He planned it that way. 


But the enemy is constantly trying to compete for the breath of God in you. He wants to possess what God has given you. So when you speak, whose spirit are you making manifest through words? What are you giving birth to in the spirit-realm?
Life and death are in the power of the tongueWe have to ask ourselves these questions, because this is a matter of life and death. Life and death are in the power of your tongue (see Proverbs 18:21), the power of your spirit, because God has given you that power – the power to create life! Truly, we are responsible for the world we make with our words and the atmosphere we create around us (see Matthew 12:36).
The deceiver does not want you to think about this. He wants you to think you already know enough about this truth. But the Father has continually pressed me to speak again and again to His beloved Body that we need to stop cursing the world around us with our words.
As His Church, we are to be His light to the world, yet we have the power to create death and darkness as well. Yes, us! We actually are releasing darkness when we speak curses, when we speak the negative outcome of what we fear, or even hateful words of revenge against others.
Manifest Him
Our beautiful Father has imparted His Spirit to us. Until you die, the breath of God is in your body. So, naturally this is a huge attraction for the enemy. Satan does not want you to make God's life manifest to the world. He wants to wrestle you and hold you down, burdening you with his lies and bondages, because He is terrified of you manifesting the God of the universe!
Aren't you tired of making bricks?Sin came into the world to hold us in bondage, but through Christ we are set free. Through this freedom, we have come back to the original intention God has for us: to be the light of the world and transform this planet. Like Israel in the land of Egypt, the enemy wants us busy making endless bricks of destruction, to create the world the enemy dreams of – to wall us in and keep us from shining our light to the world around us. God says, "Stop! Aren't you tired of making bricks?" (Photo courtesy: Lisa Kristine)
Aren't you tired of living like the world around you? You do not have to live in fear, hatred, or depression. You have the LIFE of God living in you. You have His Spirit to comfort and teach you!
You have the Word of God as your treasure! You have everything you need inside you in His breath...you just need to release it! God has chosen to make Himself manifest through you – His creation.
The words you speak create the atmosphere around you. If you speak life into the atmosphere, you will dwell in the atmosphere of life – you will manifest LIFE!
God's Health Food!
Our Father is, indeed, the Alpha and Omega, He is the Beginning and the Last! All things are summed up in Him! He is our physical life, our spiritual life, and our eternal life. It is all found in Him!
Spiritual healthOur physical bodies need vitamins and nutrients to live healthfully. If we eat junk, we feel junky, but if we eat carrots, broccoli and peas, if we eat all the good things He's provided for us, we feel life prospering inside us.
As God created our physical food, He also created our spiritual food – spiritual food that will help us grow and live the abundant life He promised and He longs so greatly for us to live in. Our spiritual food is far more important than our physical food.
God told me that when you go on a diet, it doesn't mean that you just stop eating the bad food that makes you sick. "Diet" is actually the healthy food plan of quality foods He's designed for us to make us strong!
It makes sense then that since He created us with His words of life, He intended for us to have the same quality diet of the words we speak, not just for others, but for ourselves. He wants us to nourish ourselves, body, soul, and spirit, with positive, life-building words. Indeed, words that back up and empower our Father's truth about who we are and who He wants us to be.
Yes, that means it is important for us on a daily basis to speak the health-filled words He designed for us! Thus, in those words we create our world and we get to choose what that world looks and feels like. We get to create and name the days we live. Did you know you can name a day? You can name every day if you want to.
What do you choose to name this day? Is it glorious? Is it breathtaking? Is it snuggle-with-Jesus-day? Is it your spiritual wedding day? Every day can be your wedding day with the Bridegroom – He is anticipating it, I can feel it.
This Fall Season Is Glory Falling Season
This is the day of the captives of His glory! We are living in this day and we are releasing His glory into the atmosphere with our heart words, words that come from our hearts. So, stand up and let the world know – there's a living God!
God showed me that His Bride is very pregnant and feels miserable. But in October 2013 our water broke, in November it's our time to push and travail to give birth to release the GLORY of God into the universe, and in December we will see the delivery we've been waiting for – breakthrough!
speak lifeOpen your mouth! Speak His truth and take captives with His glory! Leave a legacy of your words on this earth. Speak over your family, over your children and grandchildren, and fill them with an inheritance of your life-producing words.
Beloved, I say to you: You are His beloved, you are victorious, you are glorious, you are stalwart, you are an overcomer, you are blessed, you are creative, you are the light of the world and the salt of the earth; you are the righteousness of God in Christ, you are the healed, you are the redeemed, you are accepted, you are loved and you are favored; you are prosperous, you are successful and you are a blessing; you are the heir of God and you are the living and breathing, radiant example of God's goodness on the earth!
Beloved, you are an army of light! Create your world, and make it a good one, full of His life, His love, and His beaming glory.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS !!!!!!!!

Lord is there a Place to Protest the Darkness?

Lord, is there a place to protest the darkness?

 Are we permitted to be afraid? 

There is much within us that remains unhealed... Is 

there voice to our pain?

our questions? our struggle with sin? 

Mere human reason offers cold consolation in the

presence of burning sorrow, loss, confusion, and 

heartache....

 O Lord, protect us so that when we struggle against 

pain or recoil from darkness,

we do not unwittingly find ourselves struggling 

against you. 

Help us to accept what we cannot change, but even 

more help us never lose hope in the power of your 

love.

 Give us your heart of compassion and sympathy for 

all who are hurting this hour. 

And may we never be ashamed; may we never grow 

bitter; may our sorrow lead us from strength to 

strength, and may you use our suffering for good. 

Amen.

Where Joy Comes From

Life with Father  Life With Father (Facebook)

Joy is a matter of attitude that stems from one's confidence in God - that He is in full control, He is at work and He is in the midst of whatever has happened, is happening, and will happen. Joy is a choice! 

You have put gladness in my heart. ~ Psalm 4:7

Thanksgiving Pet Safety Tips

Grey terrier sits by dinner plate and pumpkins
ASPCA Parents
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and it’s a great occasion to have your family join you in the kitchen for a fun day of food prep. When the enticing aromas of food start wafting through your house, it’s likely that your pets will want to get in on the action. However, the hectic environment in the kitchen on this food-filled holiday poses some potential health risks for your pets. Remember these safety tips as you whip up the perfect batch of mashed potatoes and gravy:
Let’s talk turkey: If you decide to give your pet a nibble of your Thanksgiving turkey, make sure it’s boneless and well-cooked—no raw or undercooked turkey, which may contain salmonella bacteria.
Sage advice: While sage can be a delicious addition to your Thanksgiving stuffing, it and many other herbs contain essential oils and resins that can cause gastrointestinal upset and central nervous system depression in pets. Cats are especially sensitive.
Doughy dangers: When an animal ingests raw bread dough, his body heat causes the dough to rise in his stomach. Ouch! This may cause vomiting, severe abdominal pain and bloating, which could become a life-threatening emergency. Cake batters made with raw eggs are also dangerous to pets.
Portion control, please: While it’s ok to share a bit of well-cooked turkey with your furry friend, it’s best to stick to your pet’s regular diet during the holidays. Allowing your pets to over indulge could cause stomach upset, diarrhea or pancreatitis.
To avoid potential kitchen dangers, it’s a good idea let your furry friends hang out in a quiet room away from the kitchen until all the food prep is finished. As a reward, consider fixing your pets some special holiday treats. Try our recipes for pumpkin pie stuffing and pumpkin pie cookies for cats and dogs!

Chuck Pierce and Barbara Wentroble: Invite the Lord to Change Your Atmosphere! He is Ready to Shake all that Can be Shaken!
Chuck Pierce just sent out this short yet potent prophecy by him and Barbara Wentroble which was prophesied last Sunday. It's a powerful word as you'll read below.
God IS making His Church ready and that includes shakings when the Body needs them. Be encouraged by this statement: "As I shake and as I open, I Am releasing a new dimension of My Glory!"
Read this word and seek the Lord in how you can make yourself ready.
Blessings,

*************************************

Invite the Lord to Change Your Atmosphere! He is Ready to Shake all that can be Shaken!
During worship on Sunday, there was a strong prophetic anointing. Barbara Wentroble joined me in prophesying:
Barbara Wentroble"If you will invite Me down this week then I will enter your atmosphere and change that which you've been trying to change. I have power and strength to overcome, and if you will invite Me in, you will overcome this week and deliverance will come to you!
"For I AM a God who is shaking everything that can be shaken. This is a season you shall shake; you shall see Me shake everything that would hold back My coming Glory. I shall shake the gainsayers; I shall shake the mockers, and I shall shake those that would oppose and stand against this that I have prepared for this season. Watch Me begin to shake that which seemed unshakable, in days past.

"For this is a turn-around season. I'm getting ready to turn around some things that would not turn. I'm getting ready to turn the vault on the door that would not open. Watch Me turn the bolt and open the door, and watch Me shake the unshakable. Watch Me release that which I have said in days past – that the Glory of this latter house would be greater than the Glory of the former. As I shake and as I open, I Am releasing a new dimension of My Glory!"
Blessings,

Book Review: The War on Christmas

War on Christmas: Battles in Faith, Tradition, and Religious Freedom

The war against Christmas, isn't as hidden as it used to be and in fact has accelerated quite a bit.  It's about removing Jesus, from the very Holiday we say we celebrate in his name.  This book shows not only what has been done to remove Jesus Christ from Christmas by non- believers and believers of humanism but also encourages Christians to celebrate Jesus in ways that honor Him and keep Him at the forefront of people's attention during this time.

This was a beautifully produced book, with wonderfully produced art as well.  It looks like a Gift Quality book to me as well.  I liked the smaller, easier to digest sections of answers to often asked questions.  It really does answer the questions of "What is Christmas really about?"

*I received this FREE book via Handlebar Marketing for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.

Book Review:Letting Go Of Your Limitations

Letting Go of Your Limitations: Experiencing God’s Transforming Power by Sandie Freed
This book addresses the purpose of why we were created- "to bring God glory".  But in order to do that in the fullest we need to let go of things that would hinder us from doing that more.  The author even states that the intention of this book is to teach you how to tear down strongholds that limit you from demonstrating God's power.  There are small sections called "Time for Reflection" that asks a few personal questions that you can answer to further your study.

I found this book to be a good foundation study for the many areas that Christians struggle in.  Good insights about legalism were shared (or in my words, thinking if we do everything to the letter, we can earn our way with God.) She also shared about letting go of  Pride, Reliance on the human mind, The pressure of achieve results,Bondage, Letting go of squelched passion, just to name a few.
While I am a fan of Sandie Freed, I did struggle getting through this particular book.  I enjoyed the Scripture reference but for me personally right now, I found it a bit dry.   It could be the season that I am going through.  So I guess I would give it an Okay rating, because the Study part was well put together.


I received a free copy of this novel from Chosen Book Publishers as part of their book review program, and I am under no obligation to write a positive review.

(P)Obey God in the Hard Things-Joyce Meyer

(P) A Wrong Accepted by the Majority don't make it truth!

Paul Keith Davis: A Confirming Word: "The Cloud is Moving"

Paul Keith Davis: A Confirming Word: "The Cloud is Moving"
    excerpt  below:


Praise, Times and Seasons, Habitation
The Lord clearly instructed Moses to have three tribes precede the Tabernacle as they began to march – Judah, Issachar and Zebulun (Numbers 10:14-16).
The standard representing Judah was that of a lion. Clearly, the Lord is presenting Himself as the Lion from the tribe of Judah. He came once in a manger and offered Himself as a suffering lamb. However, now He comes roaring in resurrection power to appropriate His overcoming victory through a Body of people identified as the Bride of Christ. Praise must go before us along with a clear understanding of times and seasons as depicted in the blessings of Issachar.
We are now entering an "appointed time" for advancement and especially the recovery of lost heritage. While in South Africa following Rosh Hashanah very clear revelatory insights were given concerning Zebulun and the blessing of Moses found in Deuteronomy 33:18-19 saying:
Of Zebulun he said, "Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going forth, and, Issachar, in your tents. They will call peoples to the mountain; there they will offer righteous sacrifices; for they will draw out the abundance of the seas, and the hidden treasures of the sand."
The name Zebulun means "a habitation" but the land of Zebulun was once ostracized for its darkness and apostasy. However, one visitation from the Lord Jesus and it became known as a land of illumination and a source of great Light (Matthew 4:15-16). This blessing provides a prophetic picture of many places being positioned for divine visitation. I believe this will be especially true along certain coastal areas that have received prophetic promises through the blessings of Zebulun. Naturally, that is not to say this will be limited to coastal areas, but this word is identifying those places with this promise.

(Book)The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You

The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You


Break free from this subtle destroyer and reclaim a life of passion and purpose. 
Pythons have an interesting way of killing their prey. They constrict it until it can no longer breathe, literally suffocating the life out of it. In the spirit realm Satan often works in the same way, slowly slithering his way into our lives, attempting to choke the very life out of us.
 
The python spirit can squeeze the joy out of your worship and prayers. It can pressure you to keep quiet when God wants you to speak up. And it can steal the peace of knowing that you belong to God. But there is a way to defeat him. You don’t have to become his prey.
 
The Spirit of Python helps you understand the strategies of this subtle destroyer, how he works, how to detect him, and how to break his hold from your life. You can learn to:
 
·          Recognize the early warning signs that you are under attack
·          Find the ways you may have unknowingly given him access into your home
·          Bring God’s deliverance and restoration into every area of your life
 
We are in the middle of an unseen spiritual war. God wants to break the coils of the serpent off of your life. He wants to help you breathe again.
