Do you have a heart that is seeking after the Lord?
Well he will reward you , it may be in this lifetime or when you are in heaven.. it’s not up to us but for the Father to decide.
The Spirit of God spoke this to me” I will reward you my daughter because I am out of rewarder of those who diligently seek me”
"Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

The Lord whispered these words to my heart this past week and there’s nothing so special when we abide in him and he abides in us and his words bring LIFE.
When the Holy Spirit speaks it will always line up with what the word says, that’s why we MUST read and study the Word of God.
We must be able to recognize the voice of the Good shephard and discern from other voices.
His Word will instruct us, guide us and lead us into ALL truth!
2 Timothy 3:16All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.
So this week By Faith, read the Word and believe that as you proclaim it that the Holy Spirit will perform his Word!
God, Himself, stands over and watches over His own Word, making sure it is fulfilled.
Jeremiah 1:12 AMP says, “Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.”
The KJV says, “For I will hasten my word to perform it.”
The NKJV says, “For I am ready to perform My word.”
The NIV says, “For I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”
The ERV says, “I am watching to make sure that my message to you comes true.”
Jesus was walking with his disciples and he always seemed to have questions for them to see where they were in their faith.
Mark 8:27-29 NIV
Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, "Who do people say I am?"
They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets."
But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Messiah."
Peter received this revelation not from man but from the Spirit of God.
The disciples didn’t even recognize Jesus when he returned to the earth after his resurrection. When they all came together in communion and remembered what he did on the cross that his body was broken and his blood was shed their eyes were opened to see.
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them.Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
Luke 24:30-31 NIV
Persecution will come and the enemy is a liar and accuser of the brethren. We must recognize truth vs lie. We must listen to the voice of our good Shephard. We must look into the mirror of the Word to see who we are in Christ.
At some point in my life a person close to me was calling me a hypocrite and was very hurtful. I began to question myself Was I a hypocrite? I began to look into the Word and began to examine my own heart in the faith. 2Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?
Happy New year and speaking Life, health, and prosperity over you this year! What we speak and declare will have an impact in our daily lives. Starting in your mind, being aware of your thoughts and where they can roam. We must begin to take every thought captive (2Corinthians 10:5) and bring it into obedience of how God thinks about us and the plans he has for us! For God has good plans, for a hope and for a future! Jeremiah 29:11
Arise and awaken to the purpose for your life. Looking to God the author and finisher of your faith, for he began a good work in you and he is faithful to complete it! Isaiah 60:1 "Arise and shine for your light has come and the Glory of the Lord is risen upon you".
