Live your life inside out

God's workmanshipI am beautiful. God has a plan for me that no one else on earth can do as well as I can. He believes in me and He trusts me. I am a member of royalty. No one can ever stop God and me together. We are people lifters.
This is the message today.

You are somebody. You are loved and you are important. God believes in you. You are His workmanship. Wonderfully designed and made by His loving hands. You are part of his best plan. You are unique.

Say this and think this, pray this and sing this until you actually believe just as God does. When you do, you will be dynamite.

You can confidently say this because God has paid a great price for you. A priceless price with His beloved Son, Jesus.

He would not pay for a nobody. You are worth what Jesus has paid for you.

Think of the great price you are worth.

Because you look now at the worth God has for you, you no longer want to destroy or cheapen yourself.

Realize you are representing God. You are His royal ambassador. Your outlook takes on new meaning and worth. You can value and lift others just as God has lifted you.

Say this: I am here on God’s behalf. God works in me and through me. I am made for God to live in and through.

Because God lives inside you and works inside you, you look inside and see the you as God has designed and worked. Live your life inside out.

Heidi Baker at the Revival Alliance Conference: What God Has Prepared

heidi conferenceWhat God Has Prepared

Mighty in the kingdom are the little broken ones who know how to rely on their big, big God. In our frailty, He is so much better and more amazing than we can imagine, and when we meet Him, our plans and our intentions evaporate before the awesome things He has prepared for us. It’s time to lay down our lives and step into His will, purpose, and plan and tune our ears to His voice. To be in tune with Him is to have the mind of Christ and results in thinking and doing things His way.

Make yourselves at home in my love

live JESUS

John 15 The Message (MSG)

The Vine and the Branches

5-8 “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples.

9-10 “I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love. That’s what I’ve done—kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.

11-15 “I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are my friends when you do the things I command you. I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.

16 “You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.

17 “But remember the root command: Love one another.

Mark 5:24-34 what did Jesus want to show us

2014-11-08 11.15.08 This is a puzzling passage: Mark 5:24-34, about a woman mingling in the crowd, who got healed by touching Jesus’ hem anonymously. But Jesus wanted her to be noticed by all who were present. Why? The Bible recorded no other healing incident in which Jesus wanted a similar ‘publicity’. In fact Jesus doesn’t bother with publicity. He was famous then. He is even more famous today. The fame and honor given by people was not relevant to His ministry on earth. Was it so that the woman could openly acknowledge her sin and repented and then receiving healing? No. She was healed by touching His robe by faith without telling anyone. Jesus healed all kinds of people and all sorts of diseases and in all sorts of ‘ways’.

I believe Jesus was showing us the Father’s love for an ostracized outcast poor woman. She was considered unclean. She had lost all her money. She did not seem to have any family support as she was alone taking this big risk of being recognized by familiar people who might report on her and give her a worse penalty. she could not even tell people to share her joy because she was healed as she should not have been there in the first place!

Jesus wanted her to be made known in public. He gave her a new status. He gave her recognition and commendation. He gave her acceptance and honor. He called her ‘daughter’. And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.” She could henceforth lift up her head without shame and fear, and give testimony of her faith in action as a blessed healed daughter of God. Jesus has included her in His kingdom. Jesus has demonstrated the heart of the Father in heaven. God is love. God has no favor. Everyone who is willing, comes to Jesus by faith is healed. Not just physically, but in the whole being, a new creation of God.

Mark 5:24-34 New Living Translation (NLT)

24 Jesus went with him, and all the people followed, crowding around him. 25 A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding. 26 She had suffered a great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse. 27 She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. 28 For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition.

30 Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my robe?”

31 His disciples said to him, “Look at this crowd pressing around you. How can you ask, ‘Who touched me?’”

32 But he kept on looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the frightened woman, trembling at the realization of what had happened to her, came and fell to her knees in front of him and told him what she had done. 34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”

Healing key: Don’t wait. Shout now.

God's Way of Healing

When others were trying to shut him up, one blind man shouted louder to Jesus. he knew. He believed. He wanted the healing that Jesus has given to the multitudes. He trusted the mercy and compassion of God, in Jesus. He never saw with his own eyes. He was physically blind. He merely heard how great God’s work was through Jesus, but he believed and he was healed! The crucial verses: 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus. Mark 10:46-52)

So, whoever you are, just come to a meeting where many are not waiting at home or in hospital dying in despair. Many are walking by…

A proof of love

One hindrance to our mind being healed and enjoying perfect mental health conditions is the self talk we often carry on in our mind.
We tell ourselves we are just not good enough or not important enough to God or anybody. So why should we enjoy this special privileged treatment of being set completely free from torment?
But God doesn’t think of each of us that way.
He thinks you are important and precious to Himself. He wants you well!
Here is the proof.
Romans 8:31-39 is a very powerful declaration by God through the apostle Paul. God wants us (every believer) to know He is on our side. The accuser (in your mind) cannot accuse you anymore.
The proof was already guranteed by Jesus. He died for us and was raised to life for us. He is now sitting at the place of honor at God’s right hand, interceding for us.

Romans 8:31-39 New Living Translation (NLT)
Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love

31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[a]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God is with us: see His heart

Isaiah 52

New King James Version (NKJV) God Redeems Jerusalem

The Sin-Bearing Servant

52:13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently;
He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.
14 Just as many were astonished at you,
So His visage was marred more than any man,
And His form more than the sons of men;
15 So shall He sprinkle[b] many nations.
Kings shall shut their mouths at Him;
For what had not been told them they shall see,
And what they had not heard they shall consider.

b. Isaiah 52:15 Or startle

Isaiah 53

New King James Version (NKJV)

53 Who has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
3 He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
9 And they[a] made His grave with the wicked—
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
11 He shall see the labor of His soul,[band be satisfied.
By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
Because He poured out His soul unto death,
And He was numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.
