Walking in Green Pastures

I wanted to take this time to share a few things the Lord shared with me. Ministry can be fun, exciting and it can also be exhausting and overwhelming to some.  I sit here and ponder the past 6 years and how God came in and totally transformed our lives.  God called us 2 years ago to totally commit and leave all that we knew.  Please understand this call came in when the ministry was doing fantastic. We were traveling locally and networking with amazing people. The Lord spoke to us and said “I’m sending you out! I have called you to be crusaders for the Kingdom and you will tell my story.  He  said “ I Am birthing forth pockets of revival in the nations. You will capture it, broadcast it and tell My story for the entire world to see and hear” We will display all the mighty exploits of Jesus! 

This was a very exciting time for us but a very sad one at the same time. God moved our entire family to a very small city in the Alabama area. While we were there we found ourselves in a very lonely place without any friends or family. We left our business, families and our way of life as we knew it. I truly praise God for the time that we were able to spend in leadership and on the property of The Church of Acts in San Antonio, Tx. That time prepared us for the season that God was launching us into.  You may find yourself in a season of transition or maybe your offended or hurt by a person or ministry. You must keep your heart pure and don’t see how things are but see how they will be.  In this season of transition and stretching you will overcome and you will bring breakthrough for others. You will grow spiritually and in your maturity which will take you into your season of “YES.”  God isn’t looking for a perfect christian or a bible school graduate or even self proclaimed prophets and apostles. He is looking for a willing vessel who will love like He loves. He is looking for your yes. Yes there may be times where you may have to sacrifice the areas in your life. You may have to be stretched out of your comfort zone of familiarity but it’s all going to be worth it.

" But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
 (Luke 12:48)”

This vision i saw many believers in the meadow of the green pastures  of Psalms 23. In this vision they were in a safe place of rest and protection from the attacks of the enemy but they were staggering and pacing back and forth. Many of these people badly injured with cuts and bruises, It was very obvious that these warriors were tired and were coming out of battle and warfare and even though they were now in a safe place they were able to find rest because they were carrying  the offense, accusations, hurts and attacks. The Lord told me “My children are in the meadows and are safe but they don’t know it. These are my wounded ones”  Saints Daddy God wants you to rest your head in His safe place.

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalms 23)

Isaiah 59:19: When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

The word ‘flood’ in this verse is ‘nahar’ in Hebrew. It means ‘great waters, God’s running waters.’ It can also mean ‘prosperity, sparkle, cheerful.’ So when the enemy tries to come in, attack us, or swarm us, like a ‘nahar’, like a flood, God will lift up a standard against him, putting to flight and chase away the enemy.
