WORD OF THE WEEK

FAITH TESTED COMES OUT PURE GOLD

Good morning friends and co-workers in God’s glorious kingdom.
This morning I am going to share with you something very personal the Lord spoke to me;
prayerfully it will help you through the tough times most of us seemingly are going through. First
God’s Word to us:


(All scriptures may be emphasized/dissected by me for clarification. All Scripture reference is NKJV,
New Spirit Filled Life Bible, unless otherwise noted)

I Peter 1:3-7: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His
abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved
in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed
in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been
grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith being much more precious than gold
that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation
of Jesus Christ,…


I, as many of you, have been serving God for many years; been through many fires, storms and
trials. I am sure there have been times that we thought things we would not speak into the
atmosphere because they were not positive thoughts, but carnal thoughts that would do more harm
than good. But in saying that I was still shocked at what the Lord said to me that morning; it caused
me to go to my knees quickly. Hear what He said to me and see if any of it fits you; if so read the
Scripture above again and again.


I was getting up from worshipping that morning. It was time to see if my husband was ready to get
up so we could have breakfast when I heard:
‘You ask Me to show you things, teach you faith, lift you higher to see what I see then you complain
the whole way.”


This shocked me, stopped me in my tracks. I heard it several times and decided to sit down and
write down what He was saying; I knew there had to be more He wanted to show me; and I wanted to
see. He began speaking to me:


“You see the waves of life; you look around at circumstances/situations and forget My Words to you. A
sparrow falls I know it; a hair from your head falls and I know it; for I have counted each one since the
day you were conceived. You forget I sent angels to guard and watch over you. You forget there is a price
to pay to fly with eagles. I was alone when I hung on that Cross yet I was not alone. Though My Father
turned His face away, He loved Me still and bore the pain with Me. Because He loved Me He gave Me
choice and I chose to die for you.


My desire is for you to climb higher and higher. But with this desire comes trials, temptations, valleys; t
o strengthen you, to teach you, to encourage you; to understand who you serve.
These tests/trials are necessary to overcome the enemy of your soul; who wished to destroy you; but I have
plans for you, great plans. As the time approaches, the time of My appearing, the battles become greater
but so does My power and authority. I have said in the past that I would release more power, more
authority in these last days. Greater miracles of healings would come forth. My people who are called by
My name will once again rejoice in My glory. They will sing a new song and dance a new dance; for I
have spoken it and it shall come to pass.


They will usher in My presence and people will come to see and find freedom and deliverance from their
bondages. I will tear down walls, walls of discouragement and despondency; the wall of differences.


We are one body and you serve One God. I am calling My body together. I am calling My people into
Unity. I am calling My body to arm themselves against their enemy; their adversary; to join hands across
the nations. Unity of Trinity cannot be broken, cannot be defeated; cannot be destroyed. Unite My
children Unite! This Unity will defeat your enemy. This Unity ties the knot of your Faith. It releases great
Faith, Faith that moves mountains; brings them down to be plains you will walk across. Yes My children
there is a price to pay, there are battles to fight, but always remember, never forget who you serve.


I will never leave you, I have made every way to escape, I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End
, I am the Creator of all things. Follow Me and we will walk together into the promised land. I am the
I AM. If I walk with you what does it matter who is against you?
Trust Me, I am a Father who loves you unconditionally. Follow My Son, He will cause you to sit in
heavenly places. Listen to My Holy Spirit, He will guide you into truth. He will tell you of Me. He will
walk all the way with you; keeping your feet on the righteous path. The path that leads to Me. Though
your struggles are many your rewards are greater. Worship Me for in your worship I come. I come bearing
gifts, gifts of gold and silver, gifts of wisdom and discernment, gifts of miracles and healings; gifts of love
and joy and peace.


In your worship I come with My plans for you, from the foundation of time. In your worship I come, I
come with power and anointing(s). My glory to overshadow…the KEY IS WORSHIP! Worship in the
storm, worship in the valley, worship on the mountains. I come in worship and My presence pushes all
darkness under your feet. My presence dissolves all discouragement and all demons must bow. In My
presence is fullness of joy.”


Now I don’t know about you but just reading this over as I wrote it humbled me and encouraged me.
What an awesome God we serve; powerful, full of all authority yet so loving, compassionate and
understanding of us. He spoke this to me December 16 2007; I pray and believe I have grown since
then.


I want us to go back to the Scripture and notice I underlined four words, ‘for a little while’. Now I
know in our eyes our grievous trials are more than ‘a little while’; they seem so l-o-n-g and hard
sometimes we can’t see the way out…but God…my two favorite words…but God knows all , sees all
and is in charge of all. Remember also that the tests and trials are to strengthen you and increase
your faith not the other way around. He will not let you endure more than what you are able to bear.
Understand you are never alone He is nearer than you can believe. He will answer, but not in your
complaints….He will answer in your worship.


I hope you are encouraged to know we Christians are all in the same boat. Our desires are so great
to get out there and be about our Father’s business but there are road blocks standing in our way.
We need to learn to use them as stepping stones and push in to Jesus for He has all the answers.



Blessings to all
