Expect Him to move in your life today……..Part 2

I wasn’t planning to do this but after I wrote the first part I realized

I had to go deeper. I want to break this topic down and talk about

the process, how do we

“Expect YAH to move in our lives today?”

I am going to introduce three things that could help you.


  1. Bring your past to Him

You may have had a difficult past but you can let go. You don’t

have to let it dictate what your future will be like.

Bring your past to the Lord. He doesn’t want you holding on to

it any longer. Your future is brighter and full of hope.

I used to hold on to the past so tight that it became a part of me.

I used to wear it like a badge everywhere I went. And even though

what happened to me was serious, YAH wanted me to release it

to Him so He could show me a future He had planned for me.

Friends, don’t let your past ruin what YAH has for you now…


“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not 

perceive it.” 

Isaiah 43:18


2. Change the words you are speaking


“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a flow of blood for

twelve years came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His


for she kept saying to herself, if I only touch His garment,  I shall

be restored to health. ” 

Matthew 9:20, 21


The woman kept speaking what she was believing for. There is

power in the words we speak. What comes out of your mouth

has an impact on your life. Speak life, speak what you believing

for and don’t fall into the trap of speaking negatively.


“A good man eats good from the fruit of his mouth, but the desire of

the treacherous is for violence. 

He who guards his mouth keeps his life, but he who opens wide

his lips comes to ruin.” 

Proverbs 13:2, 3


3. Spend more time with YAH 

I put this as the last thing because I find it so hard. I am constantly

fighting distractions left, right and center. And the crazy thing is, I

created most of the distractions!! That’s so messed up!

We need to spend more time in His word, more time speaking to

Him and listening to Him.



I will leave you with those three things to ponder on.

I hope those points will help you on your journey.

The Lord wants to move in your life for sure. Be expectant.

Bless you friends…..








How to pursue holiness….


The growing continues this year. Life hasn’t reset just because it’s a new year. The battles we were

fighting are still around. The giants are still holding their ground.

But each year brings with it new hope, that life will get better, that YAH will fulfill what He promised.

That the battles we fighting will be finally won and the giants will fall (they will)

Let’s keep sober and vigilant this year. Continue fighting, continue trusting YAH.


With that I want us to look at a scripture;


“Woe to you, scribes and pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you clean the outside of the cup and

of the plate, but within they are full of extortion (prey, spoil, plunder) and grasping self indulgence.

You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and of the plate, so that the outside may be clean


Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you are like tombs that have been whitewashed

which look beautiful on the outside but inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything impure.

Just so, you also outwardly seem to people to be just and upright but inside you are full of pretense and

lawlessness and iniquity. “

Matthew 23:25-28


The Pharisees focused on the external a lot. They didn’t give any attention to the inside. They didn’t think

working on the inner man was important.


This year may we put more work into the inside. The outside isn’t as important as the inner man.

Let YAH come in and work in you. Don’t be like the Pharisees who thought working on the outer man

was more important.

We want to be like YAH who is holy and who calls us to be holy.


We need to take all those ugly things that have taken root in our hearts to the Lord. We don’t

want them being a stumbling block to us. This won’t take a day, a week, a month, a year.

I don’t know how long it will take. All I know right now is that I need to do this.

What about you?

Bless you






What has God put on your heart? Pray and keep praying…..

In one of my last posts of the year (2017) I spoke about YAH wanting us to go to new levels

in life. In this post I want to continue on that thread.

Today I want to talk about a new level in prayer.

There is another level of prayer for us to go to if we so desire. As we advance in the purpose

YAH has for us we need to also grow in our prayer life. Without prayer the chance of failing

increases hundredfold.


This week YAH has been showing me how important prayer is, in regards to the things

He has put on my heart, the dreams and desires He has put in me. He has been challenging

me to bring those things to Him constantly. He cares about the things on my heart, about the

desires I have, the dreams I have.

But there has been disappointment in the past. There have been things I believed Him for that didn’t

come to pass. There are things I am still waiting for and it’s been years waiting…..

I think that’s one of the reasons I have not been as vigilant in bringing ALL my desires, and dreams


But this is the thing, He knows everything in my heart intimately and love is what powers what

He does and does not do concerning the things in my heart.


What are some of the things that stop you from consistently bringing your desires and dreams to Him?


The Lord hears our prayers and answers them! Let’s look at a man I have spoken about before, Isaac.


“Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah as wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram,

the sister of Laban the Syrian.

Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea and

Rebekah his wife conceived. “

Genesis 25:20, 21


“Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob.

Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.”

Genesis 25:26


Isaac prayed for Rebekah who was barren and the Lord answered his prayer. That is amazing, but

even more amazing is how long he had been praying for. Over a period of twenty years Isaac prayed

to YAH! He didn’t give up on his desire, he never shelved it. He kept going to YAH with his desire.

He had faith YAH was going to do something or else he wouldn’t continue praying.


(On a side note: Isn’t it interesting that YAH joined Isaac and Rebekah together knowing full well

that Rebekah was barren and also knowing Abraham’s promise would carry on through them??!

Once again, YAH didn’t chose someone who was “able” but used someone

who couldn’t have children to be a vessel of His promise to Abraham about giving him descendants

as countless as the stars!!)

That’s a story for another day, let’s continue with the post………..



What has YAH put on your heart? What are you believing Him for?

Keep bringing your requests to Him in faith. Don’t give up no matter how long its been.

If you have given up then it’s time to get back up. Trust Him again. There is a reason He hasn’t

answered your prayer. Remember, its love that powers every thing He does.


The time is now to go to another level in our prayer life. Look to Him for help. You can’t do this alone.

He wants to help you get there.

We serve a God who hears our prayers and answers them friends. Keep praying and keep hoping.


Bless you






Is the Lord’s love for us fair……??


“As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to

tell you, for you are highly esteemed.

Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision. “

Daniel 9:23


“for you are highly esteemed”


For a long time I always thought this statement was reserved for Daniel only. In my mind

It was expected that YAH would think about Daniel in that way. He loved the Lord in

such a unique way! He is one of my heroes.

That statement could not possibly refer to me as well. How could I compare myself with Daniel. There is no way

YAH would think the same of me the way He thought about Daniel. It just wasn’t

possible. And that’s what I thought….


“He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to 

speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you. “

Daniel 10:11, 12


“Daniel, you who are highly esteemed”


But thinking about that a bit more recently I realized I was looking at this all wrong.

In His eyes I AM highly esteemed and that has nothing to do with anything I have


Daniel wasn’t highly esteemed by the Father because of the exploits he did.

The love YAH had for Daniel was because of His abundant mercy and grace!

Daniel loved YAH and lived a life that was set apart for Him but to say that was why

he was highly esteemed by YAH is wrong.

So what does all this mean for us??


It means we are highly esteemed and more! YAH’s love for us cannot be explained or put

into words.

Like Daniel, His love for us is intense.

His love for us is consistent. It will never fluctuate.


The conclusion is this, you are highly esteemed by Him and don’t

let anyone tell you otherwise!


Bless you friends…..













The war we find ourselves in……

“Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest

of her offspring – those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”

Revelation 12:17


As I read this scripture a few days ago certain things began to make sense.

The hardships I face when I try to live for YAH, the difficult times,

the distractions that get in the way EVERY TIME I decide to spend time with Him,

the sin that so easily begets me,

it’s all part of the enemies plan to derail me….us.

The shame, the disappointments, the condemnation, the unforgiveness that you carry is all

part of the arsenal he uses.


The enemy has declared war on us.

His plan is to kill, steal, and destroy and that doesn’t only mean physically.

He wants to destroy any hope that we have, he wants to destroy the dreams YAH has placed

in our hearts.

He wants to destroy everything good in our lives.

He doesn’t want to see us happy, prospering, winning, and at peace.


I am reminded of Lazarus when he was raised from the dead. That was a joyous time for him

and his sisters. He died and was now alive! What a miracle, what a moment!

And yet…..there were still people who were angry that Yeshua raised him from the dead!!!!

It dumbfounds me totally!!


“Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did,

believed in Him.

But some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them the things Jesus did.

Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, “What shall we do?

For this Man works many signs. “

John 11:45-47


The Pharisees were supposed to be rejoicing and praising YAH for the miracle they had just

witnessed and heard about but that didn’t happen. That is an accurate picture of how the enemy

thinks about us.

The enemy doesn’t want anything good happening to us.



I don’t know if he understands this but no matter how much he wants us to fail, and see

us destroyed it’s not his call!!

He is a defeated foe and doesn’t have any say in the matter.

Yeshua paid for us when He sacrificed Himself on the cross.

The enemy has declared war on us but he will not win. We belong to Yeshua now.

The enemy has no say about what happens in our lives.

Bad things happen because we live in a broken world but Yeshua will carry us

through all the trials we face.


“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. “

Psalms 34:19


We will fall down for sure but the enemy will not keep us down, he is not strong enough to keep us down.

The Lord will keep picking us up and there is nothing he can do about that.


“For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity.”

Proverbs 24:16


The most elaborate thought out plan of the enemy will always be stifled by YAH. It will not

succeed against you.


“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in

judgement You shall condemn.”

Isaiah 54:17


We need to trust Yeshua every step of the way.

When we fall we need to confess our sins.

When we are weak we must call out to Him for help.

He is the One who will keep us.

In our own strength we don’t stand a chance against the enemy but only as

we look to the Lord do we have a chance.

The enemy has declared war on us, yes,  but he has been defeated.

Yeshua is with us protecting us against the enemy!

That is really good news!


Bless you friends…..







Even when you don’t sense it, He is with you!

In the midst of pain, confusion, storms, uncertainty, unrest, fear and

all the other stuff we are not alone.

Things are a bit crazy at the moment in my country.

But in the midst of the craziness I know YAH is with me. I don’t know what’s going to

happen but that’s okay because I am not in this alone.

I will keep looking to YAH for it’s in Him my hope lies.


I was so encouraged as I read the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego this week.

It put things into perspective for me.

The king made a statue and decreed that everyone bow down to it when they heard the sound

of music. (Daniel 3:4)

But the three friends refused to bow down to the image.

Because of that they were in serious trouble. They had to bow down or be thrown in the furnace!

(Daniel 3:6)


The whole city was against them. It seemed like they would die because of their

decision. No one came forward to defend them.

It was the three friends against Babylon and it seemed like they would lose.

But something amazing happened,


“Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot,

the flame killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. And these

three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning

fiery furnace.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his

counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?

They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

“Look! he answered, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire;

and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Daniel 3: 22-25


YAH was with them all along even in the fire! The fire was intense but they were not hurt by it because

YAH was with them. He wasn’t watching from a distance. He was right there with them!

That really encouraged me and I hope it does you.

We are not alone. No matter what we facing at the moment He is with us right

by our side. There is nothing to panic and fret about.

Not only is He with us but He will deliver us. He will save us from whatever is threatening

to drown us.

So don’t panic and fret when storms, fear, and uncertainty come.

He is with you through it all and will carry you. He will protect you.

Look to Him in whatever situation you going through.


Bless you friends




What do we do when life doesn’t go the way we expect??

Living out God’s plan for my life has not gone anything like I expected!!

There have been turns, twists and surprising additions but nothing like I expected.

There have been difficult things I had to wrestle with.

There have been disappointments.

And as I write this post I still don’t have the full picture of YAH’s plan for my life!

Can anyone else identify??


Even though there is a lot I am still in the dark about concerning YAH’s purpose for my

life one thing remains, my faith in Him!

When we talk about purpose we need to talk about faith. Without faith in YAH we will

not accomplish His plan for our lives.

We may not make sense of what’s happening but we need to trust Him.

It may not happen like we imagine but we must trust!


And this is the thing, faith must be exercised every step of the way.

Think about the Israelites for a bit. YAH had a plan for them;

to take them out of Egypt (bondage) to bring them to Canaan (a land

flowing with milk and honey).  (Exodus 3:17)

A trip that was supposed to take eleven days took forty years! (Deuteronomy 1:2)

They consistently doubted YAH’s goodness, mercy and faithfulness.

They had a crazy amount of things happen to them along the way and things could have

turned out differently for them if they only trusted but as we know it didn’t.

They didn’t get into the promise land because of their unbelief.

Without faith in YAH we will fail. I want to share a scripture that

emphasizes the importance of faith in the life of a believer;


“Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in and

relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, whose mind and heart turn

aside from the Lord.

For he shall be like a shrub or a person naked and destitute in the desert; and he

shall not see any good come, but shall dwell in the parched places in the

wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.”

Jeremiah 17:5, 6


Before I carry on I want to say something. The price for relying on our own

strength or another man’s strength is steep. The message is very clear for

those who don’t put their trust in YAH.

This is not a scare tactic to get you to trust In YAH.


He wants us to come to that revelation on our own. He wants us to realize

that we can call to Him when things are not going our way. He wants us

to know that we can call on Him always! He loves us deeply and He

can be trusted. His desire is to see us accomplish all that He has planned

for us.

Let’s carry on;


“[Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord,

and whose hope and confidence the Lord is.

For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spread out its roots by the

river; and it shall not see and fear when the heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. 

It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease

yielding fruit. “

Jeremiah 17:7, 8


God has amazing things in store for us but we need to walk by faith.

Things may not go as we expect but faith in Him will keep us steady.

We may have no clue about the next step but faith will keep us moving.

Faith in YAH will preserve us when the fire comes, when the doubts rise.

We don’t need to see the whole picture to accomplish our purpose, we

need faith!

Let’s always walk in complete trust no matter what comes our way!

Bless you friends




The word you need to hear when you are in a difficult place…..

“Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of

Mary and her sister Martha.”

John 11:1


Mary and Martha were going through a really hard time. Their brother

Lazarus was very sick. They must of thought the sickness was serious

if they had to send for Jesus.


“Therefore the sisters sent to Him saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love

is sick.”

John 11:3


Yeshua’s response is something I really believe we need to embrace and receive

in this season. The world around us is crumbling. The systems that have been established

for so long are shaking and breaking.

Can we keep on looking to man as things are getting crazy and crazy?

How can we explain the pressure that we experience on a day to day basis??

Let’s look at Yeshua’s response after being told that Lazarus was sick;


“When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death,

but for the glory of God, and the Son of God may be glorified

through it.”

John 11:4


The amazing thing is this, Yeshua knew things would get harder for the

sisters. He knew Lazarus would die. And that’s what makes His declaration

so powerful.

Through Lazarus sickness and eventual death Yeshua knew He would be glorified

because He would have the opportunity to show the people His power!

He would have an opportunity to show the people how weak the enemy really was

by raising Lazarus from the dead!

That’s amazing to think!!


The enemy may try to lie to you that he is more powerful than God but he really isn’t.

Your pain and hardship is an opportunity for Yeshua to be glorified.

Understand this, He doesn’t go around causing chaos so He can then come in and

save the day. If He did, then we would be in real trouble.

The God we serve is loving and merciful. He would never let harm come to us. It’s the enemy that

goes around causing chaos hoping we would be destroyed in the process. But like I said, the enemy

is not as strong as he thinks he is.He is a defeated foe!!


The enemy thought he had dealt this family the ultimate blow but he was SO wrong!

He had no idea that the evil he had planned would be an opportunity for Yeshua to be

glorified. Let’s look at how badly he was beaten;


“Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’

sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead.

But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many

of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus. ” (emphasis mine)

John 12:9-11


The enemy was defeated badly!

So in your situation know that the enemy has no chance. It may seem like he has the

upper hand at the moment but YAH will turn your situation around because He is stronger

and has already defeated him!


I want to show you one more thing,


“Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did,

believed in Him.

But some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them the things Jesus did.”


“Then from that day on, they plotted to put Him to death.”

John 11:45, 11:53


After reading the response to the amazing miracle Yeshua performed by

some of the Jews and the Pharisees one things is clear to me.


The enemy hates all that is good!


What an amazing miracle Yeshua performed but there were still people who

totally missed it. All they had was hate in their hearts for Yeshua.

They even went as far as plotting the death of Lazarus who did nothing but

get raised from the dead!! That really gives us insight into what the enemy really thinks

about YAH and us.


Let that sink in, the enemy hates all that is good and I don’t just mean that in a general way,

he also hates everything good in your life!

He doesn’t want anything good happening for you. He would love it

if he could take you out. He wants to see you discouraged and hopeless.

It would bring him satisfaction to see you fail and miss YAH. He hates

you and wants you gone! Let me rephrase that, he hates us and wants

us gone!


But we are under the protection of the Almighty! No matter how hard he tries

and no matter what kind of weapons he fashions they will not prevail over us

because we belong to YAH. He is protecting and watching over us.

In the hard times have faith. Look to YAH. He will carry you through.

He will be glorified in your dark times. The enemy may try but he cannot respond

to that truth!

Praise to Yeshua!!

Bless you friends!









Something to remember when you are going through stuff…..


“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed,

for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you;

I will uphold you with my righteous hand.

Isaiah 41:10


Life can be so hard at times. In the midst of the trials we face we can forget

we are not alone.

In hard times we can so easily get into a thing of dealing with situations

on our own.

But YAH is with us every step of the way. We are not walking in the fire alone!

We need to remember He is with us always!

The enemy wants us to believe we are alone. He wants us to believe that YAH

doesn’t care but it’s all a lie.

We are not alone! Let’s take a look at a two scriptures,


“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them;

for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you.

He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6


“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,

And delivers them out of all their troubles.”

Psalm 34:17


Whatever you are facing right now call to Him.

You don’t have to face the storm alone because you

are not alone!



Bless you friends…..








The way is narrower than you think.


“Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it], for many,

I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.”

Luke 13:24


I love the picture this verse paints.

Many people think that once they get born again there is no more

work to be done. But that’s not true.

We need to constantly be aware of how we are living out our faith.


It’s no secret what the enemy’s agenda is, seek, kill and destroy.

We need to constantly take stock of where we are.

What are our thoughts like? Are they in line with the word of God?

Are our spirits healthy or are they starving?

Is our relationship with God getting more and more intimate or

are so lost that we can’t see or hear Him anymore??

Is He the One we put our entire faith in or are we still doing things

in our own strength??


The word today is a simple one,


There is work to be done.

The life of a believer is not one lived on auto pilot.

In humbleness of heart we need to constantly come to Yeshua crying out

for His help, pleading with Him to renew us day in and day out.

Without Him we will fail over and over again.


Without Him we won’t finish the race that is set before us.

That’s something we need to understand through and through!


” Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it]”


*I just want to make it clear that I am not advocating we work our way to heaven.

Yeshua paid for our sins and there is nothing we can do to assure ourselves of

heaven. He did it all. It is done!*
