Who says we can’t walk on Water today 2019?
I want us to take some time to read a little bit today
Matthew 14:22-33 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Jesus Walks on Water
22 As soon as the people were fed, Jesus told his disciples to get into their boat and to go to the other side of the lake while he stayed behind to dismiss the people.23 After the crowds dispersed, Jesus went up into the hills to pray. And as night fell he was there praying alone with God.
24 But the disciples, who were now in the middle of the lake, ran into trouble, for their boat was tossed about by the high winds and heavy seas.
25 At about four o’clock in the morning,[a] Jesus came to them, walking on the waves! 26 When the disciples saw him walking on top of the water, they were terrified and screamed, “A ghost!”
27 Then Jesus said, “Be brave and don’t be afraid. I am here!”[b]
28 Peter shouted out, “Lord, if it’s really you, then have me join you on the water!”
29 “Come and join me,”[c]Jesus replied.
So Peter stepped out onto the water and began to walk toward Jesus. 30 But when he realized how high the waves were, he became frightened and started to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he cried out.
31 Jesus immediately stretched out his hand and lifted him up and said, “What little faith you have! Why would you let doubt win?”
32 And the very moment they both stepped into the boat, the raging wind ceased.33 Then all the disciples crouched down before him and worshiped Jesus.[d] They said in adoration, “You are truly the Son of God!”
Today I was reminded of the story of Peter walking on water. Can you just imagine that?! Do you think Peter was even looking at anything else but Jesus??
The Goal is this verse Matthew 5:8–blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God, but it’s also the journey.
The main point that I believe everyone has been trying to grasp is this–we just NEED JESUS. He’s the one we should be like. He’s who we need. He MUST become everything in everything. ALL in ALL!
I wrote to one of my young disciples today and I said, “hey today go do a miracle and go walk on water.” Why is that impossible for us to imagine? Because many churches don’t teach a class on it, but all the knowledge you need is in God’s word! I’m not here to speak against classes. On the contrary, I know that they have the ability to equip any follower of Christ!
So how do the miracles happen? How do we go after those things? Because we want people to simply see Jesus. I heard Michael Kulianos say “Since when is it one or the other.” We should never have to choose between God’s presence and His miracles because they are all one in the same! I myself was a person saying I have to choose, but actually we need all of Jesus. If we get Jesus we get THE MIRACLE!
As I’m just spending time with my momma, I’m so in awe of her willingness to learn and soak everything in. I’m telling you my momma is the bravest ever because she’s the most obedient. She truly walks on water. Not that she hasn’t been fearful here and there, but her best friend is the Holy Spirit and one of the many things she’s taught me is this–you don’t need to help the Holy Spirit!!! He doesn’t need your help or your opinion on anything. Let Him be the leader and let us be great listeners!!!
These are the things that come flowing out when you’re in your Secret Garden. That is the best place to be!!!!
Just sit at Jesus’ feet today. Go ahead and take a hold of Him. Embrace Him in everything you do. My mom said anything you place above Jesus is where you lose it. You can meet a freind in the presence of Jesus, but they are just stewards of the Presence. It’s not the real thing. Come to the Bride Groom because THAT’S real and it’s who Jesus is. When you walk to Him just like the bride when she is looking to her Bride Groom as she walks down the aisle is just like Peter keeping His eyes on Jesus when they were on the water. Even Peter is the Bride Groom!!!
He knew Jesus was the one who had changed his life forever. We need to stay in His presence constantly and live everyday like we are walking down the aisle with our eyes fixed on HIM!
So the last time we talked about being “Radical” which a lot of people don’t know but the word “Radical” has to do with the Roots of a tree.
SO what I think of when I see that is the
“Roots that he revelas” is the stuff the Holy Spirit is leading you to take out. You see so many times we think God take this from me , but we are the ones who have to do the work to allow him in those places he can’t do it for us. He knows exactly where to gp in your Root System. Trust me He knows. He knows where to go in your whole “Spiritual House” and he knows what to Sweep and what to Mop. You see the stipulation we can have the knowledge of what we think is gonna happen or maybe you know exactly whats gonna happen, but without PERMISSION its NADA!
So today I wanted to go in and talk about the “Root RESIDUE”. Now this part is the the stuff that remains, you know what lets take a look at the dictionary for this word.
Residue | ˈrezəˌd(y)o͞o |
noun: a small amount of something that remains after the main part has gone or been taken or used.
• a substance that remains after a process such as combustion or evaporation.
So there we have it. SO we already know what Roots are and what it means to be radical so combining the two “ROOT RESIDUE”.
Some of you may know this or not about me, but I’m really facinated by Snakes and reptiles. There is this Reptile Zoo guy I follow on insta His name is Jay Brewer and his @handle is “@jayprehistoricprts”. Anyways reason I love following Him because he explains these animals in detail. He also exapins how you can be safe but also so that you don’t harm them. Now thats enough about that I’m gonna show how it all makes sense in my mind. I’m gonna bring my mind to you as well so you too can understnad what happening up there haha.
Here we go one of the things that facinated me about Snakes is the Snake Eggs is this…
When you seee the eggs they need to be kept warm and moist and another thing about these eggs is some of them don’t make it all the way through to life, but because they are being hatched in a “Reptile House” most of them will make it and they also get help by Jay who will make a small incision in the egg to help the babies survie, but the rest is up to them!
Cool right? No just me okay stick with me even if you don’t like snakes..
Now I know what you mean what does this have to do with your topic “Root Residue” ? Well it reminded me of thr Holy SPIRIT with us he points to us. He helps us and the rest is up to us. The “Permission” part is on us. We need to GIVE HIM “PERMISSION” TO GO IN THOSE ROOTED PLACES and go back and clean the Residue.
So these baby snakes have all this goop (the Residue) on them because they were incubating in their eggs and their Mom did her part, but these babies still need to get wiped down once they truly come out. Jay the Snake Reptile Guy wipes that Residue off, becasue there is Residue when you just got either uprooted or when you are first born for cold blooded animals and even for warm blooded animals we need to remove ehe residue.
Lets allow the Holy Spirit to remove the Residue in every situation espeicially the roots he reveals. Lets not get freaked out when
So When the Holy Spirit goes back to remove something its not cause you got issues or anything like tha tbut maybe there is some residue and he wants to remove it all from your life so there is nothing left remainig!
Does this make sense? I hope so. THese are some thing the Lord has been mimistering to my heart about and I pray it helped you all to go deeper and further and not thinking that there is naything wrong with you if something comes up. We as christians don’t need to overcomplicate it. Keep your thoughts pure and focused on Jesus. Go be with Him don’t try to overthink you and Him it takes time away.
So lets look at this verse together:
Philippians 4:8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God,[a] praising him always.
HEY EVERYONE YOU SEE THAT UP TOP… if thats not what youve been thinking shake it off and get to thinking those beautiful thoughts he has for you and in that process he’s taking care of that Root Residude. Trust and know thst God only brings peace not anxiousness “BE STILL”.
Psalm 46:10 The Passion Translation (TPT)
10 Surrender your anxiety![a]
Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God.
I am the God above all the nations,
and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
So again as he’s removong the Root Residue its not a bad process its great one that comes with all the stuff its a beauirful time in Jesus all let Him love you and you love on Him in the same process!!!
Hey everyone I know we’ve been talking
before you go anywhere I wanted to read this and see that you are that one in the potters hands and as you reamin there as he gracufully forms you, through your example you’re winning the Lost and your heart of compassion will continue to grow in the deepest places!!!!
So i’m talking to every person in this world and you will know who Jesus, but first things first be with Him! One thing I told some on Our churchs praise an worship team was this…
I dont want the Clay to even dry I want it to remain wet, I dont want to wait until i’m at “BURN OUT”. I like to see what I believe God is speaking to me so I’ll use another example.
The Example that i’m talking about is when a candle is about to go out when its at its last burn it make a big noise and begins to fliker. Most people would just wait for it to burn out and just let it go until its gone. I don’t want that I don’t want the candle i’m given which is sucha gift to even get so low that I’m close to burn out. OI want to stay LIT! The best place to be is THE PRESENCE OF GOD! Be close to the heart of God with you allowing him to form you there!
its inn the Potters hands where the Clay remains wet so he cans ahpe you. you are pliable for thr Masters use. Whats incredible is you begin to minsiter to Lord when you’re so honest in everything that is happening the good, bad and the ugly. Because god cares about all of it!
So lets read some of Jeremiah 18 below:
Jeremiah 18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Parable of the Potter
18 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Go down at once to the potter’s house; there I will reveal My words to you.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, working away at the wheel.[a] 4 But the jar that he was making from the clay became flawed in the potter’s hand, so he made it into another jar, as it seemed right for him to do.
5 The word of the Lord came to me: 6 “House of Israel, can I not treat you as this potter treats his clay?”—this is the Lord’s declaration.
So this was the word God gave me while I was away and than slowly songs began coming to me and I found one that has been ministering to my heart
Reminding me to stay in the Potters hands because many times we remove ourselves from that equation but when we do that we take ourselves out of His will. We think sometimes I’ve been here long enough but I find the best stuff comes out of remaining in the potters hands and knowing we are not our own. When you come to that place of knowing you are not your own that nothing belongs to you than you come to understand he takes it all back right.
This is in the potters hands. We are all flawed but its in the potters hands we give out best even to the Lost who are our Family sometimes and even friends we Love so much like family we can’t give up on them we gotta press all the way for them but its remaining in the Potters hands!!!
So going back to your Radical place with Jesus which is also known as your secret garden or your Field..
Looks like you Marrying the Bridegroom yes not in a weird way for boys and girl Guys and Gals fall in Love with the Bride groom… I just read this verse and I’m flooded in tears…
Hosea 2:14-15 The Message (MSG)
To Start All Over Again
“And now, here’s what I’m going to do:
I’m going to start all over again.
I’m taking her back out into the wilderness
where we had our first date, and I’ll court her.
I’ll give her bouquets of roses.
I’ll turn Heartbreak Valley into Acres of Hope.
She’ll respond like she did as a young girl,
those days when she was fresh out of Egypt.
I mean you ask Jesus to speak to you man and there he goes. This is what it is man, that’s the presence its falling in love with the Bridegroom completely in every way!!!!
So I received this phrase..
because I had a segway conversation with my Brother Julian Gamba, many know Him as Pastor, but to me he’s family and a great mentor! I blessed to have someone like Him speak into my life and prophecy in my life the things I don’t even see.
First of all everyone who read this I want you to know that you need that kinda of community people who sharpen you asnd cut things out of you Truth Friends and family. When I consider someone family its not because I feel all the warm and fuzzies its because they speak into my life. So this is like my brother Julian i’m specific about Him and Lore because I was with them a couple of weeks ago and i’m like having all these
“W H O A – M O M E N T S”!
So that’s where I got “Grace Gracefully” because on the first night we had a Segway conversation of why I was really there and it was so good, and as the days went on the Lord was already downloading in me things just unraveling in and I began to realize I was unthreading all over again, I was going back to old worship songs I hadn’t listen to in like forever because I felt led to go to that and I would have major crying sessions, but it reminded me of my “Unraveling season”. Right there I realized whenever God wants to take you to a new place you must rid yourself of all. Why because I’m not my own.
We’re coming to a new time a new season where we are not our own and God wants ALL OF YOU, ALL OF ME! There is honestly no other way. I’m not wanting to sound like I’m making you sad like you can’t have what I have, because its the exact opposite but when you come home be home and be rooted and radical about your decision.
rad·i·cal | \ ˈra-di-kəl
Definition of radical (Entry 1 of 2)
: of, relating to, or proceeding from a root: such as
: of or growing from the root of a plant
: growing from the base of a stem, from a rootlike stem, or from a stem that does not rise above the ground
So here find ourselves seeing what the word Radical means , so when I say “Be radical or I wanna b e radical” I wan to be rooted in all things Jesus, but in order to do this I need to go back to the “Garden” which for me is the “Original”. In the bible there are many verses of the secret place established
For Moses it was the mountain top
For David it was Him in the field
For Adam it was a garden 🌺
For Jesus the Garden/the Desert 🌵
When you go back to that place that where you get developed are
able to make the little changes that make all the difference. I find that you get the best results when you make little changes, but many times I’ve seen people try to make BIG CHANGES for BIG RESULTS ,but that’s not the case in my experience again.
So one of the main things I want to write you is allow the Lord to open your eyes Jesus wants all of you he wants you radical. This will most likely be a series because this was only the beginning of what the Sprit of the Lord is ants to get through to me, but basically all don’t over complicate Him a let Jesus come and be real right in front of you today! Be blessed
The quote, “music is the universal language of mankind” is attributed to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Jesus is my Universal Language. He’s the one I focus on the one I look to.
I had a very fulfilling conversation with my dad. That helped me grow so much. Of course we all want to be told when were doing good and doing well and growing in every capacity, but we also need to know that the things we say need to be things we aware of and actually make an effort towards. If we say were guarding everything that we say we are we can get vulnerable and before we know it too open to when things affect us.
Has that ever happened to you?
God has a special Gift for each of us and all day Ive been meditating on the Prophet Jeremiah I love Him so much I just love prophets so much I have a special place for them maybe because in so many ways people have told me I have a prophetic gifting ( I don’t say that in any weird way to make anyone uncomfortable). The main things that Prophets are good at is spitting truth and fire, but because they are so open and free to speak righteousness in Truth that is very accurate the return affect is your heart ❤️ is vulnerable.
So who is the Universal Language in your life? Who is leading and guiding your life? Do you have someone you go to not just when things are tough and not just a friend but even Higher then that? Do you have a leader? Who on this Earth right now is Help leading your life?
How plugged in are you?
When we are motivated and promoted that means things stay behind you the only thing Jesus said was pick up your cross and follow me.
So let me just take a minute to say that Yes when we follow Him we may think its gonna be tough but it really isn’t a bad thing as we do it, we get so much deeper!
So lets read what Jesus said Himself Here…
Matthew 16:24-26 The Passion Translation (TPT)
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If you truly want to follow me, you should at once completely reject and disown your own life. And you must be willing to share my cross and experience it as your own,[a] as you continually surrender to my ways. 25 For if you choose self-sacrifice and lose your lives for my glory, you will continually discover true life. But if you choose to keep your lives for yourselves, you will forfeit what you try to keep. 26 For even if you were to gain all the wealth and power of this world with everything it could offer you—at the cost of your own life—what good would that be? And what could be more valuable to you than your own soul?[b]
So can we all say like my last Blog “ooosh” 🔥 because this right here is one of those verses!
I like to ask myself these Kinda question and because it was stated so eloquently here in the verse “what good would that be?”
So just so you know reader I’m totally speaking to myself and possibly to you if you need this.
Did you know that you need to take up your cross as a “Whole Body person”?
Most people just think they don’t need to take up their cross for everything just some things, but thats so not true. What we think is just our “Mainly” isn’t our “all”.
So when Jesus said…
“If you truly want to follow me, you should at once completely reject and disown your own life.
And you must be willing to share my cross and experience it as your own,[a] as you continually surrender to my ways
I honestly needed to come back and break that down in two different ways because its all one verse but look at this verse there is so much 🔥 you just got burned!!!! Haha 😂
But on a serious note here for myself personally
Jesus is my universal Language everywhere I go he’s there and sometimes we get in a fog or a haze but what would life be like if we didn’t have a great teacher and great leaders showing us the way? Where would we be? They say that music is the one Universal language and its so true, but this blog isn’t about music its about Jesus.
Don’t be suprised that ohhh there his name is again , because Jesus is the Love song in me. He’s paid a high price for my Life and for that ooshhhh I’m so thankful for and my heart pours out before Him and makes a great song cause even when I sing and I totally miss the note which happens a lot Jesus thinks my voice is lovely. Why?
Because I am His and I have made my heart His home. When Jesus see’s a mess he helps me clean it up. When he can’t understand what I’m saying he says to me, come here lets speak the same language My Language. Come and let me settle your heart.
This is what it is to the up your cross and follow Him when heLives inside of you. Thats what It means guys its so simple.
Where would we be without loving correction and connection? We would exist with no purpose Jesus Desires to make us the focal point in His eyes and that we would share that message with everyone else but it doesn’t stop there that He would form His character In us through us with the Power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit sweetly corrects but also can come in like a raging fire lets Live lives so pleasing to Him in His eyes.
I got a prophetic word so powerful and it made me cry in the middle of the Line at Starbucks. Thanks A lot Leala haha called out!!! I’m just reminded we need to surround ourselves with people who think Higher because thats how we move up.
SO what Universal language do you think you speak?
I can continue to say this Jesus is the Universal Language we all speak.
To quote one of the Camp Rock songs “You are the Music in me”.
Blessings Xoxo 😘
Also I do really Love Music so enjoy this song that was brought to my attention by My Bro Juanes 🥓 bro-tato-Chip!!! The Horn section in this song OOOOshhhhhh 🔥
So what kinda talker is she?
Getting to know me.. here we go!
So disclaimer I write the way I talk…
Ooooooshhhh… words are a huge one for me personally and there we begin this blog about being a talker or being a deep talker!
This was a question mentioned to about me so people could get to know me and honestly I never gave it too much thought 💭.
To answer the question here it depends who I am talking to. And who you are in my life. I so badly don’t want to be led by my own emotions more by the heart of the Holy Spirit who is true to purity’
Do I never have sass? Umm nope 👎 I do have it a lot actually sometimes, but my goal is to be led by the Holy Spirit in everything I do.
My Spirit, speaks to my soul and then my soul speaks to my body!
Also when you talk “deep” a phrase I say that’s not in the English dictionary I don’t think is “ooshhhh”… like Fire 🔥
Life and death in a deep talk right?
So I’m reminded what my dad told me.. “open your heart slowly” because when you deep talk you open yourself up to anything and everything because why because “the deep in you” cries out to the deep in that person”. If you aren’t careful about the deep you cry out to you could hurt your heart ♥️.
So let’s learn to affirm with love and guard one another in the way we speak…
One Morning I had a great conversation with my Daddio! We had a very affirming motivated deep talk. It was simple because he regarded my heart in the conversation because he was led so simply and gently by the Holy Spirit!
So know that if you’re a deep talking make sure it’s led by the Holy Spirit and affirmed in his love to you refused the other person because talking for nothing isn’t good…
So to answer my own question to myself I am a deep talker but a simple talker which can be led by the spirit of God as well. I won’t go by a label of being deep or just a talker because at the end of the day if I was obedient in simplicity or depth it’s dependent on Jesus and what he says!
Now I wanna tie in how being a deep talker or just a talker tie into the power of WORDS!
I’ve come to understand that when we are motivated by how we SPEAK AND RESPOND..,
this for me is something i’m working on for sure especially because I know when words aren’t spoken correctly or carried carefully it can destroy a person. this knowledge I had even before I really fell in love with Jesus.
my love language is for sure Physical touch and my second biggest one is Words of affirmation…
I tell my one friend “Please affirm me” haha she knows who she is and you know what she does affirm me! 🙌🏼😉
When I think of jesus i just believe everything about Him was from beginning to end it’s all WORD! It says in the Bible life and death is in the power of the tongue… here lets read:
Proverbs 18:21 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Your words are so powerful
that they will kill or give life,
and the talkative person will reap the consequences.
also were gonna read about creation:
this is Genesis 1:1-5
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.[a]
2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” There was an evening, and there was a morning: one day.
John 1 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God [b]Himself.
So we see here that the words are Jesus and he created them from creation. Words being spoken is so key… so just knowing that should give us all some perspective in the way we speak to one another. In the way Jesus forms things with His words.
Even His disciples knew that In John 1 we see him say God was the Spoken word.
doesn’t that shoot down your spine in a good way tingles man because he was the actually Breath of God the “ha” in Hawaiian and I googled it 🤩
Ha, Aloha, Spirit and the Breath of Life..
this reminds me of when God struck me in such a way he came and literally wrecked me so powerfully in 2017 during our “Aloha” women conference! I really thought I was so good and everything was all “G”… but little did I know what the Lord would speak to me and the way he would that I was literally without breath for a while we need the Breath the Spoken word that brings Life to our Bones!!!!
Enjoy this all Go speak with the Breath of Life in your bones and motivate your neighbor!!!
Also have a simple, talk or a deep talk with someone today if you’re led by the Spirit of God you will mark them even with just a smile!
