March 1st, 2020 – Spirit-Break-Out song in my spirit early morning.

Our Father
All of Heaven roars Your name
Sing louder
Let this place erupt with praise
Can you hear it
A sound of Heaven touching earth
A sound of Heaven touching earth
Our Father
All of Heaven roars Your name
Sing louder
Let this place erupt with praise
Can you hear it
A sound of Heaven touching earth
The sound of Heaven touching earth
Our Father
All of Heaven roars Your name
Sing louder
Let this place erupt with praise
Can you hear it
A sound of Heaven touching earth
A sound of Heaven touching earth
Our Father
All of Heaven roars Your name
Sing louder
Let this place erupt with praise
Can you hear it
A sound of Heaven touching earth
The sound of Heaven touching earth
Spirit break out
Break our walls down
Spirit break out
Heaven come down, oh
Spirit break out, we need you…

Courage

Hello friends,
This is David, pictured above. He was our Tour Guide during our recent 10 day trip to Israel. As we were traveling on foot from one site to the next, David suddenly stopped us on the side of the road. He began to explain that the battered bus pictured, is used to pick up the Jewish children every day for school; yet others in their surrounding area yell and throw rocks at them. He went on to say, this doesn’t stop the children or affect them from accomplishing their rightful place in the land and receiving an education. This picture has become a notable moment in my walk in the Holy Land. At our return the Lord etched this experience of courage by solidifying it in my spirit through His Word.

Let me explain: during a study I was completing by Stephen De Silva, it lead me directly to the words of Paul in Acts 20:22-24: And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

The profound question De Silva was asking in his study is, “What are you bound to?” Could you answer that? He further went on to say: whatever we are bound to, is where we will find our strength to persevere in the face of the enemy’s schemes.

And we know, the enemy has schemes and sabotages, that often times sound like, toil, fear, or threats yet our God has a remedy, Courage.

Giving Thanks

The book of Thessalonians was written with a focus on
The Soon Coming King.
Interesting? As you read the passage below, do you find these verses to have a stunning and resonating sound for today?

1 Thessalonians 5:15-22 (AMPLIFIED)
See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek that which is good for one another and for all people. Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench [subdue, or be unresponsive to the working and guidance of] the [Holy] Spirit. Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations—words of instruction or exhortation or warning]. But test [all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good. Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it].

Did you read in the center of it all: past, present and future, these verses supply a truth that will forever remain? We can find God’s heart and will again and again. It’s found central to our giving – thanks, continual prayer, rejoicing and delighting in the faith.

Give-thanks: To be grateful, feel thankful, give thanks. Friend, this is how we stay plugged into God.

Pray continually: this one is obvious, happening all the time, always loyal.

Rejoice: success in doing, finding a source or cause of great happiness; connect your joy to your delight in the faith and you will begin to rejoice.

Give Thanks to God

Here are few give-thanks verses we find in scripture that have the same meaning as when we read in:

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Matthew 26:36 – And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude.

Matthew 26:27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.

John 6:23 – however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks—

John 11:41- Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.

Lastly, Romans 1:8 supplies giving-thanks and a prayer
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

Prayer:
Father, I humbly thank you that in the midst of your brokenness you gave thanks. You continue to walk beside me through every season of my life. In times of great hope and hopelessness you strengthen my faith, may it not fail? You’re an ever present help in time of need. Thank-you! Grant opportunities of grace so that I can share my faith effectively with others. May I rely, lean on and trust in You. Thank you, You hear my prayer!

Quote:
Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.
