Too Busy To Know God - Lisa Patterson

Luke 10:38-42. Martha had a sister named Mary, who sat at Jesus feet and heard his word. Martha was so busy
 doing all the everyday tasks that she couldn't sit and listen to Jesus teachings. That is the way we are sometimes. We think we have to be busy for God. When it actuality, He needs us to sit at His feet and listen to His teachings, which are to rest in Him. We think we have to "work for Jesus." That He needs our
help with the everyday things and
chores that need to be done. All in all, He can very well tell us how and when to do what needs to be done in His own timing and way. He is very
capable of doing our work for us if we will let Him guide us. We miss it by
thinking we know how and when to do things He has already planned for our lives. We cannot live by faith if we are always trying to get ahead of Jesus.
Martha was so busy with all the work she thought needed to be done in order to get approval. You do not need to work to get His approval. His way is to rest in Him. He has done the work and all we have to do is believe it and do the part we can do and let Him do the part we cannot do. Martha thought she needed to do
the important things with Jesus being a guest in her home. So, she couldn't focus
on Jesus and what He came for. Mary wasn't helping, so she thought she needed to do it all. We make the same mistake and by not getting to know God better.
And, that is all He wants from us. Not whether the house is immaculate, or the
food perfect and the kids top manners. But to sit at Jesus' feet and get to know Him and what he is trying to get across and His teachings.
Luke 10:41-42 Says to slow down and invest to get to know Him(Martha). Let
His word reveal himself to you. He has all day to talk to you. Sit and relax and
soak in the moment and it may help you save time and effort in what you thought
you needed to do on the list of "things to do." Even though Martha felt "justified"
asking Jesus to childe her, it is a mistake many of us Christians make. We think
have to do it for Him because it is not getting done when it needs to!
Let me know the joy of walking in thy strength and not mine. Let me feel thy hand in thine. The Lord says,"Such a gentle breeze passing from the Father's
Heart to yours to let you know He is always there and loves so much. A fragrance from Heaven abides  with us all the time as we go through this life to know of His love for you and that He will always be there to rest in Him." We cannot fathom the Father's love for us as He is with us always. So, there's no way to understand nor compare His great love for us. Each is made in His own clay that He molded just for you." Let me breathe the fresh air from Heaven to your heart as you need me this hour.  And the days are darker and short. Time is in the end and you need me more than ever before. So take His words sincerely and do not think lightly of His coming and what He is saying at this hour, says the Lord."Be a sustainer for the Kingdom. That is to endure for what God has called you to do. Givers, Worshippers, Prayer Warriors, Intercessors, Restorers, Restoration, etc. Whatever He has called you to do. Be a sustainer in this life to keep up the Kingdom of the almighty God! He will meet your needs if you help keep up what you are called to do this hour. It is critical now, so listen to Him.

Knowing God's Will For You - Lisa Patterson

II. Cor. 10: 3 says we walk in the flesh but do  not war into it. For the weapons
of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty unto God. a Stronghold is a belief
system embedded in you. The place of warfare is what you believe. You will
arrive where you believe. Life will go the way you believe.
John 14:16,17- 1) Pray the Father and He will give you another helper, the spirit
of truth, the world cannot receive. He is the helper. John 15:26 says to send the 
comforter to you.John 16:8 He is the helper to convict you of the need of a Savior. To be convinced, judgement, John 12:31. 2)to be your friend. he is wanting you to come into Him.
People are weird. Even satan himself said he was weird.Don't get caught up in it.
But Jesus is compassionate and is a helper to the poor and needy. Kind to those
in need where you cannot get that from anyone unless they have the Savior inside them. 3)He is my God.(He is God)! John 14:16- Jesus sent the Holy Spirit so we would not be left alone. When you get the Lord you will have the God instincts to let you know things right or wrong. Let your life be fruitful and 
productive. Bring someone to the table. Be a praise and a witness. You are
going to have to die to yourself! You do not belong here any more. It is all new.
Jer.1:4-5 Says you had an existence before you were born. I know the thoughts I have of you. Not evil, but good, to give you a future and a hope.Your plans were
mapped out before you were born. He will get you to where you are to go. You
are not a mistake. Rom. 8:29 Who He predestined, He foreknew and chose you.
He knew you even though you messed up and he will get you back.
He will stir the pot to get you where He wants you and have you back as His.
You cannot escape and there's no need to fight it because you are not fighting
man, but God, and you cannot win. It is a no- brainer. He always wins.
So, get in the place you are supposed to be and everything will go smooth
with Him on your side. It won't always be easy, but He will always be there
for you to get you out of the mess you entangled yourself in. You cannot do as
you want any more because He is in charge of your life. There is no other to
turn to and He holds the keys to your heart.He wants all of you and not part.
Let Him love you as He is pulling and drawing you back to his presence. He wants to wean you unto Him, as He loves us so much that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever would believe on Him and know that he sent His son to die for us on the cross, would be saved.He gave His son's life for us so that we might be saved. There are thousands going to hell everyday. But that is not His will for us. Read the Word and you will know His will for you. That is His will for your life and each and everyone of us have a life in Christ Jesus set apart for His glory to give Honor to His name. Be blessed today and always knowing He is here for you for whatever need that may arise. Let Him do it in you. For I heard the Lord say, "This year is a fresh new breeze. I felt it as never before. Things are happening in the Heavenlies. Isaiah 61, says it's a New Yr. and the Lord is going to fullfill it this yr! Take the fresh manna and breeze for you and your family and be faithful to behold all that He is doing in this hour. He is mending bridges also that have been torn down for many years."

Happy Labor Day - Lisa Patterson

Today we should thank the Good Lord for all He has done for us. And the
blessings we have and not to take them for granted. For He alone is the
one who makes it all happen. We cannot do anything on our own. It will
not work, as we try and try to get things to work that will not bcause we
haven't invited Him in to do it for us. Too many times we think we can just
do the job that He has given us and it may appear to be going well along.
But then, something else comes up and we have to call upon the Good Lord
to help us out. He is the Creator of this Universe. There's no way we can think
He cannot get the job done, but there's one reason behind it if we don't. That is
to think like Him and be in Him all the time. To see things the way He sees
them and love Him is all He wants from us. He made us and so He knows
what's in us and what's not. We are all made in His image, but different.
There's no other you! He does not run a zerox company. He is the Creator.
He loves us with His everlasting love! It is His and His alone and we need
to tap into it. If we don't, we will run into error on our part. So, rest in His
presence today. Let The Holy Spirit(God), talk to you. He wants to communicate
with you. He is after you. He wants your attention, not the flowers and the trees.
He can do anything and we are to let Him love us unconditionally. All of us were
not loved that way. But He can fill in the gap where you may feel lonesome and
need His presence to take care of that place deep inside he is longing to get
to. Let Him have His way, as the year is almost over. it has gone by fast and
there's a New Begining coming your way if you will let Him come in where
He can get you to know Him as He wants.The Lord would say, "Get up under my umbrella where the anointing is and let me hold on to you and take care of all the worries of this world. Stay here where the light is and not the darkness of the world. So, stay under the umbrella where you are taken care of and will be under my wings, so the enemy cannot snatch you up and be where you need to be with me. I have surprises for you inside the anointing."

Power Of Encouragement - Lisa Patterson

Proverbs 16:24, says to encourage. Everyone needs to be encouraged. We need to do this at home and everywhere. We don't do it enough
 at home or in the public like we should. But God says we
are to because you do not know what someone might be going through. It
may not show on their faces and they may not drop a hint, but we are to
encourage all the time. When we do, we get a blessing from it, and not just
the others. Everyone, old, young, successful, less than successful, famous, feeling hopeless, helpless,
 needs to be encouraged. It does not matter where you come from or where you are today. Life gives us hard knocks anyway, so we are to help
the brethern in our everyday walk. We do not know what someone is facing
in their life. I could be a divorce, loss of job, poverty, loneliness,or even  a
person they have to care for and don't know what the future holds. It might
be that person lost a child or loved one. People need help and we are to give
them the attitude that we are there for them as Christ did.
Proverbs 16:24 says pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the
soul and health to the bones. We all need that. Too many times we are
receiving the opposite. Too much of home life is the opposite for so many
people on this planet. They need to hear about the gentleness of the Father.
If you treat a man as he appears to be, you make him worse. But treat him
as he would potentially could be, and you make him what he should be.Let us
be enriched by His everlasting love for us, as we do not want to be our own
any more after living the way we have all our lives. He knows everything.
So be encouraged to be who you were meant to be, and not what you might
think you are. God created you to be His finest and He doesn't run a Zerox Company. He is a Creator, not a duplicator. No two people, whether identical
twins or not, are the exact same. No enemy can make any one and make them
as special as He does. Everyone has their own blueprint inside them of what
they were created for. No 2 are alike, even in the same business or ministry.
He puts you where He wants you. It is where your money is. It does not follow
you . That is the place you will be best at and the best will come out in you. Go where you are celebrated and not tolerated, and you will be at your best.
The  Lord would say, "Let it all go and give it all back to me. I have a place to put everything you cannot carry. You must trust me and give me your load to bear. You do not need to take on a burden that is mine and I know what to do about it. I have room in my house for all your needs. they aren't yours any more.
So, let me have everything in your closet you do not need any more. Clean out the things you have had a long time and give them back to me. I will restore it for you. I love you more than you will ever know. Get closer to me. Things are not as though they appear to be, so don't look at the way things are, but to me, the author and finisher of your faith. I have paid a high price to get you to love me and come to me and get to know me. I have taken all I have within to get to you so you can get to know me. It is not about you, but me. There's much more if you will come unto me and let me show you how much I have and care for you."

You Are Not Your Own - Lisa Patterson

II Timothy 3:1 says you are bought with a price when you come to the Lord. You are not your own any more and cannot do as you want. It is not you any more, but He who lives in you forever. When you get saved, you are
bought with a price, and do not belong to ourself any more. there is no more
doing what you want or looking back at what might have been or what you
could have done. When you realize these things, and get to the point of
knowing you belong to the Lord, Things start to change in you mind.
It is  not a small venure to take the narrow path, but when you go with the Lord, the path you live is smaller and better than the world has to offer. Let no man deceive you or lead you astray. Our body stays the same, but the spirit man changes, and the soul has to line up with your spirit by studying the word. God is not mocked, you will take on a new life, but it will come with a high cost of dying to yourself. You may think you can still do as you please and go where you want to go. But you can't always do that. You will find out quickly that the road less travelled, is the harder road, but will bring you joy and peace through circumstances that come up in life you thought you can handle on your own. The evil one roams around seeking whom he may devour. He never rests. He is always lurking around to see who he can take back the Lord had. Those who are not saved, he isn't as concerned, because they are an easier catch. II Tim. 2 Your grace is in the Lord. We are not to be intertwined
with the world system.The enemy is aggressive, so he does not sleep.
I Peter 1 Says we are a stranger to this world. Having all to stand, stand through it. Do not look at the things seen. You have to have people who pray with you
by the spirit. not just any one. Always be careful who you let in your life. Not
everyone is to be with you or in your life. He will assure you of that. Psalm 37:7 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him. Do not fret, for He is with you. Jesus died to make you worthy. How much more could you ask for? Lamentations 3:25 The need of waiting is that the Lord is good to those who wait on Him. You have to shut out the voices of the world and to the soul that seeks Him. Isaiah 30:18 God waits for men to wait on Him. Blessed are all they that wait on Him. We must trust God for everything, not just what we want to trust Him for. The Lord said if He got us out of our situations, He would have to put us into another so we would have to love Him and wait again. He is going to do it His way and there's no need in trying to fix it all yourself. Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man who heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors, calling my people to come to me. We need to listen to what He is saying to us at this hour. He is loving us when we think something is wrong. He is watching us all the time and He is our God who will never leave us or forsake us. For he loves us more than we can know. The Lord would say," Have I not told you how much I love you? Have I not already shown my love for you, even through the valley. It has been hard, but I have not left and will never leave you. I am mending your hearts and fixing the stony places, and hard places and hurts that have occurred over time.Some have been rejected and feel as though they can't get ahead. And others feel as though God is upset with them, but know that He is a just God. I want you to have a clean heart pure for me. To love others you must have surgery of the heart to get your heart back where it needs to be in me. Some have been wounded so deep, but I am mending it back. Let me take care of it all for you. I have already done it all, so do not take it back yourself. I have paid a high price for you to let me come into you and do that I am wanting to do in your lives. So give it back to me again and don't look back. I am handling it all for you, just let me do it. Don't pick it back up, for I have already taken care of it all whether it looks like it or not.I am changing things that have been stale for a long time. No need to worry about your life any more.It belongs to me now and I am changing all around you."This is Lisa Patterson with the Good News that Jesus Loves You and wants you to come to Him today!

The Holiness Of God - Lisa Patterson

God is a Holy God. And there is no other! We can never take it lightly what all
He has done for us. He sent His only begotten son, who was blameless, to take
on the whole sins of this world, for us. He that knew no sin, became sin, for us.
He died so we don't have to worry about who we are or anything at all.
Matt. 20:22 says the cup is prepared by the Father. You will be baptized with
the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The left hand is not mine, but for those prepared to do the work of the Father.
 II Cor. 4:3 Gospel veiled for those who are perishing. You need to take this seriously as time is short.If you can
preach the gospel without having to always quote it, it just comes out. Then it's an anointing that's Heaven. Some must quote and read.
Rom. 3:21-31 we are justified by faith. Rom. 4:17 God calls those things which are not as though they are. So we must speak those things we want God to do
which are not, as though they are. Always speak it that way for the right results.
Rom. 5:6 Christ died for the ungodly. There's not one righteous. We need a mass humility in this earth. Everyone thinks they have a right. If you understand
mercy, it will break you. he loved us so much that He paid a propitiation for
our sins. They took the blood from a perfect lamb and sprinkled it on the mercy seat for our sins, so we did not have to die the horrible death the enemy had for
us. The blood was received for our sins. We can never do enough right.
Titus 3:3 Be subject to the law.  Speak evil of no one and be peaceful  to everyone. It is not by righteousness of our own. but the washing of the word.
We have been made a new creation, and a renewing of the Holy Spirit. Your
mind gets renewed to truth and away from the world. He empowers you to
have a boldness to witness to others about Christ and what He has done and the
great salvation He has paid for us all to have.To have such a God as we have is
nothing short of a miracle. We should not take for granted what He has in store
for His children and everyone. He loves us all and is no respector of persons.
He is there at all times for us to hear His voice. we must talk to Him and keep with Him all the time. Read His Holy Word to receive faith. it comes from
hearing the Word. Then you may be set free from your doctrines of devils
you have been brought up with. And you will be set free from anything that
binds you. You will learn the Lord and his righteousness. And you will be one.
Be free this hour so you may hear Him and His great love for you. He is not
hiding from you until you disobey. That takes you back on the wrong road.
The Lord would say to you,"Look into my eyes and see my face. I am wanting you to look straight at me and not to the left or the right. Can't you see what
I have already done for you? It's not about what the enemy has done. Don't look
at that. Look at my face and see what I am saying to you this hour. There's
a new beginning and a new year to which you haven't grasped yet. I am just
starting the new path - cleaning out the old ways, making a new path this year.
You're healing is here too- all kinds of healings, different for everybody. Take it
home and give it to your family." The Lord is straightening out things in His
way. We do not have to do it for Him. He is leveling out things.

Faith - Lisa Patterson

Faith is taking God at His word and His word at face value. God has limitless
supply of resources from all who trust in and obey Him. Fearing that we will
not have enough is an insult to God who has revealed himself to us.
Believe God is able to supply your needs according to His riches in Christ
Jesus, even when you know not how. Know that God promises to keep his
people alive in famine. This applies spiritually too. God's spiritual resources
for you are limitless, even during times of spiritual drought. IIKings 4:1-7.
Choose to believe that you will always have enough resources to do the Will of God. II Kings 4:43-44. Faith is rooted in a trust in God's witness in scripture as illuminated by His Holy Spirit. One must continue to believe the scripture and
become loyal to it. Develop spiritual 20/20 vision. Choose to believe the Bible
as the absolute word of God. Believe the words of those who proclaim God's
word. trust prophetic "words" brought by Godly men and women. II Chron 20:20. Faith takes God at His word. Do not question His promises. Through
faith we can speak confidently, praising His for promises that will bring
success.Express gratitude for all success and favor. Neh 2:8
The man or woman of God will not seek recognition because he or she knows that God sees and rewards. Know that God will not forget your acts of
righteousness. He will reward them openly in His time. Esther 6:1-11.
Fear is the opposite of faith. it is believing what God says is not true. God
commands us not to be afraid. Faith is able to trust God and not act out in fear.
Fear shows lack of faith in God and His promises. Job 3:25. Rely on the Lord's
protection against verbal attacks and do not fear them. Job 5:21.
God wants us to take Him and His word at face value. Be consoled that God
is everywhere and always present. Psalms 139:7. Be assured that as you continue in Him, the Lord will most certainly fulfill His purpose for you.
Psalm 138:8. Do not fear when God's direction takes a turn you do not
understand. He knows what he is doing. Gen. 12: 1-9. Do not strive to fulfill
God's promises on your own. It always backfires and causes undesired
results. Gen.16 1-4 His nature is to provide, so trust Him that He will do
that He said He will in due season.Faith in God honors Him and results
 in your receiving what He intends for you. Judges 4:9.
Belief results in obedience, what we practice provides evidence in our faith.
Faith sees beyond trials and obstacles, knowing God uses them to strengthen
us and shape us into Himself. Our faith should lead us into wanting us to
worship God. II Sam. 7:21. Know that God knows how to care for His servants.
II kings 17:1-9. For He loves us so much that He gave us His only son to die
for us and the blood of a spotless lamb slain for us, to keep us from going to damnation for eternity. This is the kind of God we serve. He wants us to
have faith to know He will take care of you and do that which He said if
we will only believe. His first priority with us is to believe Him. That is what he wants most and foremost. His 2 great motivations of His blessings are faith-
fulness to His Word and  the loving generosity of His heart. We need to get
close to Him, as He is wanting that more than anything, because He paid such a high price for us to come live in the Kingdom of Heaven with Him for eternity.
The Lord would say, " There's a gentle rain coming down to wash you. Not
a flood, but a daily rain. The Lord is fixing places in our hearts, deep places
 we need to be healed. He is straightening out our families. Walk closely with
me. I want you to come to me and ignite the fire again. I am so pleased you
come to worship me. I love you so much and gave my life for you. A gentle
rain long enough will flood us of all things and cleanse us and heal our
hearts. Our hearts have bruises and wounds He can see. When we get born again
we get a new heart, but there's still darkness still there. A bright light was
shown in the window- a white light. So, come unto me and let me take it
all from you and all your worries and cares. For I careth for you, says
the Lord. For there is no other who loves you as much as I do."
