Scripture

Fools fold their hands and ruin themselves. 

Ecclesiastes 4:5

Reflection

Crossed arms leave you closed off to receiving God’s blessings and incapable of being a blessing to others. You’re stubbornly rejecting humility, which is a recipe for disaster.

Have you ever tried walking, jogging, or running with your hands or arms interlocked? Eventually, you WILL lose balance and risk falling flat on your face. Why purposely subject yourself to that?

When we close ourselves off from learning, growing, being challenged, experiencing new things, and hearing opinions that differ from our own—we are setting ourselves up to fall hard.

A fool will always think and believe, “I got this,” or they don’t need to hear something or get help with an issue. They fold their hands and block their blessings rather than extend them outward to receive. You can’t be a blessing to others if you’re walking around with that mindset. You can’t catch or be caught.

Keep your hands folded while trying to navigate life, and watch how hard you fall. Always keep your hands and arms open to receive and give.

Prayer

Father, never do I want to be closed off from You, closed off from knowledge and wisdom, and the right way to live my life. Father, I don’t want to be stubborn and set in my ways, where I never consider and accept alternative avenues shared by You to reach my goals.

Lord, I always want to have a “can do” attitude even in a situation that may at first and throughout seem impossible to complete, overcome, or achieve. I’m not a quitter Father, and You know this more than I do. Please keep showing me the possibilities and potential that I have. Keep blessing me Lord. Keep my mind and heart receptive and open to You and Your children that serve You. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

I love you all.

Scripture

By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see. 

Acts 3:16 

Reflection

Faith requires trust and active participation.

It’s believing in the unseen, the unknown, the immeasurable, and the inconceivable. Faith is walking even when you don’t see the path ahead. Faith is believing in and opening yourself to seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, and touching using your spiritual senses and not relying upon your human senses (which are limited). Faith is knowing there is a “there” even when you aren’t sure where “here” is.

God created us out of His spiritual image and likeness, not flesh but spirit. Like Him, we are energy, and we’re housed inside these vessels of flesh called bodies. Our Father has equipped us with the ability to heal, grow, and experience things beyond our comprehension. Our limited thinking prevents us from doing the things the Spirit encourages us to pursue. Expand your thinking and vision. Look beyond the physical. Look beyond the weeds and trees, the mountains and valleys, the obvious things surrounding you, and that which is in front of you.

Connect with your spiritual foundation, and then hold on for the ride because it will be exciting, euphoric, and rewarding. Jesus told his followers that anything asked for in his name would be provided. That requires faith in him and faith in God. It’s not casual; it’s connected. It’s not passive; it’s intentional. It’s a declarative act on our part.

God made you, so if you think you aren’t worthy, think again. You weren’t an afterthought. You weren’t the remaining scraps pieced together. You were intentionally made. Live by faith in your relationship with God, the Father, and Jesus, His son.

Prayer

Father, I know that through Your son Jesus Christ, the wayshower, I find my way to where You expect me to be. It is through him I receive my training and development to see how I am supposed to serve You, live my life, treat myself, and treat others. I want to build my faith in knowing that I am never separate from You or Jesus. I want to build my faith that all crooked ways will be made straight, that all debts will be paid to me and by me.

I want total faith that I am always whole, complete, healed, and at-one with You and Your son. I want total faith to see through my spiritual eyes, hear through my spiritual ears, and feel, smell, and taste through my spiritual senses. I want total alignment with You.

I declare that I am Your child and Jesus is my shepherd. I declare that I am a believer, a practitioner, and a follower of Christ. I declare that I am Your ambassador and servant, and that it is my purpose to serve all of Your children—even the non-believers—so that every day Your Light and the essence of Jesus, exudes from me, and brings people closer to You and him.

Father, I praise You. In Jesus’ Name I pray to You and thank You for all that You are doing. Amen.

God bless you all. I love each and every one of you!

Scripture

But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might…

Micah 3:8

Reflection

You are strong. You are courageous. You are powerful. You are energy. You are God’s child. You are filled with His power and His Spirit. You know justice because it is within your heart. You know right from wrong. You can stand for what’s right and good because that which is of God is what you’re to emulate, support, protect, and be.

Knowing who you are by Whom you were created, you then know, believe, and declare all that is within you and all you are because of Him.

Say it. Claim it. Know it. Believe it. Be it. And thank God, for it is in, by, and through Him that you have these things.

Prayer

Father, thank You for blessing me with strength, power, wisdom, courage, humility, joy, love, laughter, humor, and the ability to care and empathize. In You do I put my trust. In You am I strengthened, and know the truth of my walk with Your son Jesus, and my purpose in Your Kingdom. There is nothing and no one who can stand in the way of our relationship, Father. There is nothing and no one who can block my blessings Lord. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I praise You and pray to You, Father. Amen.

Love,

Natasha

Scripture

Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. 

1 Corinthians 4:2 

Reflection

To whom much is given, much is required. It’s time to step up, walk the walk, and get the job done. Can you be trusted with what you have been given? Every blessing in the form of a gift, talent, skill, opportunity, and solution—only comes from God. So only God, not man, can rightfully judge you. We’re so busy trying to please and gain acceptance from the creations when we need to focus our attention on the Creator.

Prayer

Father, I know that I must walk the walk, put some weight behind the words I profess. Daily, through how I live my life and strengthen my relationship with You, I’m to prove my love, devotion, commitment and faith to You. It’s not for man, but for You that I must prove myself. Thank You for creating opportunities for me Lord. Thank You for trusting and believing in me. Now I must prove that I’m trustworthy and a good steward of the blessings—while overcoming fear along the way. With You by my side, as You always are, I know that I can do anything. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha

Seek Him

Today’s message comes from Day 130, my book Seek Him, Volume 2: Going Beyond Your Spiritual Comfort Zone.

Scripture

Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem? 

—Isaiah 2:22 NIV

Reflection

Our relationship with God is our very own. We do not need man to bring us closer, to analyze the depth and longevity of our relationship with Him. We do not need man to speak to God on our behalf— we can speak to God anytime we choose. We just need to make the time to talk and connect. He’s always waiting, watching, and listening. He is our provider. When our bills need to be paid, it is God that provides. When we are sick, it is God that heals us. When we are lonely, God is our comforter. When the enemy attacks, God is our shield. Turn to Him and learn to rely on Him as your Source for all. Just as Noah, Abraham, Jesus, and others did. Look at how they proved their commitment to their relationship with God. They honored the covenant they had with God. Are you half-committed in your relationship with Him? Are you partially in this? Or are you 100 percent invested in it?

PRAYER

Father, I put my trust in You. I trust You to provide me with my needs, to see me through circumstances, and to show me the answers to my problems. Even if the answers don’t arrive when I want them, I trust You. I will stop relying solely on man. I realize that although You may send a human messenger, servant, guide, or companion—they are not my source for life, truth, love, peace, joy, and healing. Only through You are these things made possible. Thank You for being my spiritual Father and Mother, my all in all. Thank You for loving me. Amen.
