“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1, NRSV
Let us pray for those starting new endeavors! A new year brings goals of start ups for some! I want to be a part of those with new ENDEAVORS! A cure for cancer(s) and other diseases that need answers. Ways to feed the multitudes that are hungry daily. We need the fish and loaves ministry in action. Advancement in technology in all areas of life and work! So many golden opportunities awaiting for God’s Glory to shine on and through.
Do you have any new endeavors to share?

What is calling you, me? Do I feel the magical in the air within the moments of doing?
I love giving beauty to ones that need a magical moment! The call says go, find, send and watch a surprise give joy bringing a spark to the smoldering coals that need air to reignite.
I love working on and within tandem of team to act and show like the movements of a fine Swiss watch!
Each year as I evaluate I realized how improved this movement is with more resources, computers, cell phones and online ordering among many other tools given to make even more lives feel the magic, and more often. Hey, Disney, we’re on your heels of bringing magic to many that may not be able to make your park but are making a healthy movement to see, hear and feel the mysteries found from The Holy Spirit designed just for them.
Hey, Sara!! No fee to enter this Magical, Supernatural Theme Park….the Park of the Holy Spirit. The Victory Ride is free; the Miracle Wheel is free; the Mercy-Go-Round is free. The milk and the wine are free. And, I want to spend my money for that which is the BREAD OF LIFE at the big Concession Stand in the Clouds!
All it really costs is confidence, trust, prayer, commitment, worship & adoration of the Lord Jesus Christ and many hours of Community Service…that is to the Community of the Body of Christ.
Sara, you had asked above what new endeavors we might share with the Lilies.
At first I was ‘speechless’ and did not have a quickened [by the Holy Ghost] answer. But this morning in prayer I believe HE answered my [and yours] question. That I might serve in prayer & intercession, the community of saints who are afflicted, ailing, ill of body and sometimes discouraged or sorrowful of spirit. To pray especially & seek for their healing and to minister to them in some capacity spiritually and/or financially. And to offer the ‘gift’ that Moses had commanded to give to God for the break-through and as a testimony of God’s healing power in their lives—[Matthew 8:3-4]
So that is to be my mission in 2015 and I am excited about it…and it has already started…those INTENTIONAL PRAYER POINTS….settling it in my heart.
God has already provided a vehicle for my mission…A MERCY TEAM with the Lilies. I will have my portion to do as I described above to contribute to the ‘Joy-Bringer Lilies on thedailylily.com and among the saints of the Lord in the Body of Christ and to those among whom He sends us. HALLELUJAH!!!
MG, dosen’t this awaken the song we have so often sung; Worthy, oh Worthy is the Lamb that was slain….We are action figures as the Angels that sing unto The Slain Lamb!
I believe 2015 is open season to the Throne!
Wow, I take that as a prophetic word. How exciting….”open season to the Throne” of GOD! OH,,,, It will be worth it all, when we see JESUS! For when we see Him we shall be as He is! Hallelujah!!
“Let us pray for those starting new endeavors! ” Praying for new breakthroughs and a cure for cancer is one thing I would like to pray for. My guitar sits daily calling me to come and sing and pray and I would like to be faithful to that call.
The meaning of my name, Deborah, calls me to be a bee and be busy helping the hive community by searching, gathering and bringing back to help, along with others, meet the needs of the Master’s call.
Debi is a busy bee…always ready to lend a hand; helping here, helping there. As you sing & pray the healing prayers, I join you in my time with the Lord to sing of God’s salvation and healing and restoration for those whom He has given us to minister to.
I rejoice the He has counted us worthy to do the works of God that He desires in His heart. What a privilege !!
So sing, BEE sing! Play BEE play. Pray BEE pray. Work BEE Work! That will delight the heart of the Lord. And many will come to the light of your shining.
Debi and MG sounds like a lot of rhythm of song, prose, prayer and praise! If we don’t lose the sound of the beat with worldly distractions the emeral green around the throne might dance with us.
Revelation 4 is the sight we should behold on the open season of the throne…. “I was in the Spirit and…Throne set in heaven, and One sat on the Throne…He who sat there was like a jasper (diamond like) and a sardius stone (deep red) in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the Throne, in appearance like an emerald (green). …Around the Throne were….Thrones…I saw 24 elders…they had crowns…From the Throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning… Before the Throne there was a sea of glass…around the Throne, were four living creatures…” (Rev. 4:2-6)
Let’s look and experience; The power of God’s Word touching us and those we pray for as we declare His Word back to Him. Let us thank God for His Throne. Then we ask God to reveal (release) a spirit of revelation about the Throne.” (Eph. 1:17).
Yes, I believe it’s open season to The Throne of God! Sign up and receive the benefits!
Sara, as I was re-reading and thinking on your comment above about The Throne, particularly, “Yes, I believe it’s open season to The Throne of God! Sign up and receive the benefits!”, I was hearing the tune and words to a verse of one of the songs you wrote, “Let Them All Come to Me”.
I think it applies to ‘open season’. And it seems to apply also to Tammy’s devotional, “So come to Me…”
“Let them all come to Me.
Let them come. (Let them come.)
As I open My door to My throne.
Let them come. (Let them come.)
O, let them not be found without oil.
O, let them not be found with guile.
Let them come to Me.
Let them come. (Let them come.)
2015 is so exciting! Being a part of a move of God in the land is beyond words. Even though gross darkness may… Isaiah 60:2 NIV “See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you.” Being in The Throne Room of God is light all array! Whoa, such thoughts of truth even lights the mind with joy!
“The power of God’s Word touching us and those we pray for as we declare His Word back to Him.”
That is a powerful statement, Sara. It’s like He calls us with His truth and a solution. If we don’t return His call, then we haven’t responded to His overtures.
It makes me think of this truth from Jeremiah 33:3: “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.”
I love this scripture found in Jeremiah 33 that Debi has posted for us. The part that is so freeing for me; if I call to God from the sincerity of heart I don’t have to tell Him what and how to handle healing, misunderstandings, finances, etc. Because God said, “….Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.” Got that right; which I know nothing of….I have a difficult time with the God people who think they know how to say all the right words of mumble jumble to get a certain answer…they even start thinking they got an answer but their answer was what they already knew. Just imagine God can show me some things I know nothing of. Dare to think on this! Be careful it might prove to be a stopper for mouthing words!
I think the devotion I read today gives some insight on the “new endeavor”. (focusing on God and His Word). Read with me from the devotional book, “His Princess Love Letters from Your King”, by Sheri Rose Shepherd.
“I have so much to show you, My precious, I know you see the troubles of this world, and they sometimes overwhelm you. So come to Me, and I will take you to the mountaintop. I will open your spiritual eyes so that you may see an eternal view of what matters most. Keep your eyes on Me and in My Word, and you will see My hand at work in everything around you. Remember, My princess, the eyes of the world are on you, so show them who I am by keeping your eyes fixed on Me and My eternal plan for people. Love, Your King and Giver of sight”
“So we don’t look at the troubles we have right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:18”
Sounds like an endeavor I need to pursue! What about you?
Always feel afraid to eye landscape that view!
Love this prayer for this hour…”EVER-VIGILANT GOD,
who calls and equips me to serve your creation,
help me to live in constant readiness,
so that upon your return I may be numbered
among those wise maidens who carried sufficient oil
to keep their lamps burning.
Through the power of Christ. Amen.”
– Rueben P. Job, an author of many spiritual formation books and a bishop in The United Methodist Church, …
Sara, I think of the phrase you used,”sufficient oil”. Sometimes the oil doesn’t seem to even saturate the wick of our souls. Sometimes the flame is a flicker, starved, yearning, thirsting for the oil of the Holy Ghost and the anointing that breaks the yoke.
We desperately need that ointment and the fragrant oil of the Holy Spirit….that sufficient oil that burns brightly and gives light all around….and exposes darkness…any that might be in ourselves and that which is in the world, wherever we go.
