IAM to Praise the Lord

PSALMS 148:4-5 NLT Praise him, skies above! Praise him, vapors high above the clouds! Let every created thing give praise to the lord , for he issued his command, and they came into being.

Psalms 148 is one long run on sentence with one message:  PRAISE THE LORD!

Take the time to read the whole chapter and in your mind envision yourself in the grand scheme of the universe.
The heavens , skies, angels, sun, moon, stars, skies, earth, creatures, kings, rulers, men, women, Let them ALL Praise the Lord!

Let’s zoom out of our own existence to understand we are one voice and one life that is willingly praising the Lord.
Why are we willing?  Because as we focus on the greatness that HE is! On the amazing power that is our God is, we can only fall onto our knees, raise our hands in surrender and give him the praise that is due.

Taking the time to zoom out and get perspective is a big help to get a proper understand of the power of our God, in relation to our issues.  Praising God brings our heart and minds back onto the most important thing that matters.  It creates proper perspective about the fact of who is really in charge in this big world.
Then with proper perspective, we pray for miracles with supreme faith in knowing God holds all the keys to Kingdom.  God created and designed the body, mind, liver, pancreas, vertabrae, blood and heart.  He knows how to put back in order, what is not right.  God knows how to control the minds of men, kings and governments.  Praising God, increases our faith in the only one who really matters.
 God's Handiwork

While you are out and about, driving to work, look up and see the sky and clouds.  Understand their beauty and uniqueness are all praising the Lord.  The trees, shift and sway, and they are dancing in God’s presence to point back to the wonderful creator.

Let every created thing, praise the Lord!  He spoke us into existence.

That life giving word!  Gave you life, brought you into relationship with the creator of the universe.
And our created response is to live our lives, and point everything back to him.

Let’s praise him
Let’s give him all the glory
Let’s have faith for all things, because we have a proper understanding of how this thing works

IAM Supremely Confident in My Identity

Mark 14:61-62 NLT But Jesus was silent and made no reply. Then the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?” Jesus said, “ i am . And you will see the Son of Man seated in the place of power at God’s right hand and coming on the clouds of heaven. ”

Jesus knew who he was.  He spoke plainly and boldly.

And he knew where he was going, he knew his destiny, and he speaks with confidence about that truth!

If you take a look at the whole chapter and previous chapters in the gospel,  Jesus is finally betrayed and he stands before his accusers. Yes, that’s me, you got it!

But not wrongfully accused, but asked to give testimony about who he is.

Are you one of them Christians?

Yes, IAM, and I want to share the Love of Jesus with you!

Are you someone who can help me, because my family member is dying of cancer?

Yes, IAM, and I will pray for you and your family in the power of the Holy Spirit

Are you someone who can provide wisdom and insight into this horrible situation?

Yes, IAM, and I will speak the truth of God’s love and ways.

And everyday! Someone is crying out!  Who can bring sense or reason to this crazy crazy world we live in?  I need help!  I need someone to talk to!  I need someone to pray for a miracle!

With no hesitation, just instinct?  When our second nature, and first nature, become one powerful being moving in power, then we are confident!  Yes, IAM.

When I hear and read people’s prayer requests, I love the ones that say “I want to know God more!” Or “I want to go deeper”  or the really bold one “I want true faith” I boldy ask that God answers these prayers and He gives you a bold bold measure of strength, because these are prayers that will disrupt your middle class 3 bedroom 1.5 bath existence!

The middle will be messy, but the finished person will be Glorious!  And you will stand among the witnesses and warriors who know very clearly what they are, who they are, and what it is they are called to accomplish in this life.
God is refining you, purifying you, and transforming you!

Everyday, I hope to encourage you with another shade and aspect of God’s identity.

It’s my prayer that you will have the opportunity to boldly testify the truth in words and action

IAM Marvelous

Psalms 139:14 NKJV I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

There are some people that might be a little too caught up with themselves.
But I truly believe many are not able to look in the mirror and proclaim these truths out loud.

Can you see the beauty that God has put inside of you?
Can you look into the mirror and smile?
Can you quiet the lies of the world?
Can you quiet the lies of an angry parent?
Can you shut out the lies of unsupportive family members?

Too many people are not happy with that they see in the mirror. Achievers are not happy with the results in their lives. That’s not our identity!  It’s not what defines you!

When our self image is poor, and borderline self hatred, then we are left in our pity party. We aren’t loving others, because we can’t even love ourselves. We are hating on ourselves and hating on our creator. And we are just stuck in a place, doing nothing.  Exactly where the destroyer of lives wants you to be.

That’s why we must bulletproof our minds and spirit against any lies.

When our plans to do something don’t exactly work out the way we thought… we can’t let that define us. When someone is hateful or angry towards us, we have to learn how to understand it’s the hurt and anger inside of them that makes them lash out and want to bring me down.  But it’s not a reflection on the fearfully and wonderfully made person that stands before God!

I pray that your SOUL knows this very very very well. God is our creator, he has given us his DNA, he has given us his breath.

God made you fearfully and wonderfully
God’s work to create you, and his continuous work in you daily , is MARVELOUS!

What is our true identity, and who you say you are. In your proclamations of ‘IAM!” Are rooted in the beauty and masterpiece of God, then it’s not vain conceit.

Then after you have pumped yourself up in the mirror, and you can smile and stare at yourself.schermata-2014-05-05-a-11.36.39vd-9805_0x440

Then open your eyes to the beauty of God’s creation in your fellow man.

Humility is having a proper view of ourselves. Not boastful. But also not the pride of the worm.   Don’t put yourself down either.

And if that’s a bad habit for you, then it’s going to take over 21 days of mental conditioning and spiritual healing to fix it.  But it’s not impossible!

The healthy balance is right in the center of God’s truth today. Write it out, say it loud, but fill your heart and mind with the truth.

Really!  Get a journal, and write the truth about your greatness

 There’s no room for the lies of the enemy to freeze you and push you back
