The Power Within 

Every word we speak relinquishes power – God spoke and it was so. 

God’s power is in all of us. It is in everything he has given breath to.

The words that speak about ourselves become the truth that we live out while here on this earth. Whether we say things to ourselves in silence, or out loud, we become the very chatter we speak, sometimes underestimating the power that they have.

God desires us to live in the power by his word and in the truth given so that we can create a life with him.

Live in his truth today. Speak to yourself, to those around you, in the way God would speak to you.

“And the earth was waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep: and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”-‭‭Genesis‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭ASV‬‬

Loving Reprimand

“Better is an open reprimand [of loving correction] Than love that is hidden.” ~ PROVERBS‬ ‭27:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Often times, when I am not looking above, or standing firm in the affirmations of my blessings, I can get caught up in the negative things that surround me.  

I forget that I have been chosen and created for more.

I can go after hidden love, the kind I’ll never see in things, or receive by human flesh. 

My mind is closed to the loving reproach of the Lord. I miss out, on an abundant life, one that should create a heart full in thankfulness. 

Yet, God in his magnificent power, seems to meet me despite the learning I’ve yet to accomplish. He doesn’t condemn me. He gently reminds me that it is an open mind that finds direction. 

It is from HIS heart where real love is deposited.

Baring His Beauty,

Power Of The Tongue

WORTHY THOUGHT: The most powerful weapon in the universe is your tongue.

Death and Life are in the power of the tongue. Those who love it will eat its fruit.  -Proverbs 18-23

What is violence? In the first place, we think weapons, knives, killings. We never think of connecting violence with our tongues. But the first weapon, the most cruel weapon, is the tongue. Examine what part of your tongue has played in creating peace or violence. 

We can really wound a person, we can kill a person with your tongue.  -Mother Theresa 

Take ships as an example although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. -James 3:4-6, 10 

Gods Word that is conceived in your heart, then formed by the tongue, and spoken out of your mouth, becomes a spiritual force releasing the ability of God within you. ~ Charles Capp 

Meditate on scriptures to learn how to use your words wisely. Words we speak will either build you up or hold you in bondage. Many people have been taken captive by using their own words.

Your Next Step

Friendly Tip: You Will Be Strengthened and Lifted Up!

 

Yes, I am back and thank you for welcoming me back. It has been several months since I have contributed to Restored Ministries Blog. I have thought about writing because I know this is part of my ministry; but honestly I feel like the enemy has been trying his best to take me out and keep me from contributing.    

 

THIS WEEK, I HAD AN OVERWHELMING SENSE OF WORRY (about returning to blogging) & TODAY I HAD AN OVERWHELMING SENSE OF ANXIETY.  

 

Here’s what I learned:

When you have an assignment that GOD wants you to focus on, we often become stuck in a season of planning to do it. We then move into a season of deciding to do it and right before it is time for us to move forward, sometimes we get this overwhelming sense of anxiety. Anxiety is a form of fear. The enemy wants to block us from our blessings. Instead of allowing the enemy to take me out, I write anyways, specifically- write about my experience.

 

This message will be for someone…

You were gifted with your baby and now you’ve succumbed to an overwhelming place of worry and fear. You are wondering what to do next. You have the solution; because I know he has told you exactly what to do. Start pressing towards your next step and often you will need to pray towards your next step. Yes, press on and pray towards your next step knowing that he is with you. What’s so amazing on the other side is that he will hold you with his strongest hand! Believe in the power of GOD and move!

 

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 41: 10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

Friendly Activity: Make a list of two things that have been on your heart. Next to each item, make note of what you know you’ve been called to do in that area. Pray and ask GOD for strength and make a move. Trust me, he will help you, let us know of the results.

 

May you find rest in the Lord!

 

Good Night Friend!

You Can Do It!

If you have been baptized into Christ Jesus and you walk as a Christian, no longer can you pronounce that your spirit is willing but your flesh is weak. 

You can only say that your sprit is free and your flesh is dead. You are a new creation, a beloved child of the greatest Father. You were not born again to a spirit of fear, though if you fear anything let it be God in His inexpressible glory and goodness, but you have been born into a spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind. 

Throw off the old belief of being a sinful person and put on the righteousness freely given to you through the blood of Jesus. 

Walk bold and confidently as a child and shine so bright that others will want the same freedom and salvation that you obtain! 

Run this race with diligence and always help your fellow brothers and sisters on the way. Jesus said to follow Him which means….

YOU CAN DO IT! 

Love you guys and so does Jesus 🙂

Living In The Overflow 

        Your grace is enough for me.

        Your grace is enough for me.

        Your grace is enough for me. 

And if I still struggle a week from now your grace is enough, and if I struggle a year from now your grace will be enough. 

And every time the devil tries to wound me, I’m going to turn it into worship and I’m going to turn what he brought as an attack into an advantage in Jesus’ name, Amen. 

I declare that your grace is more than enough!
                    ~ Thomas Joel Trevino

Children Of Light 

“Once your life was full of sins darkness, but now you have a very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with his revelation – light. And the supernatural fruits of his light will be seen in you – goodness, righteousness, and truth. In this revelation light, you will learn to choose what is beautiful to our Lord.” Ephesians 5:8-10 Passion version 

As I get older I am trying to keep my life, relationships and thoughts simple. 

Elementary my dear, that’s how I want to approach life. 

Sweet and simple!

I came across these verses the other morning and I had a bright light bulb moment of shining revelation. 

Dahhhhh!! 

Don’t we all at some point want to know why we are here, what is our purpose for being born?
Well many not all of us, but I would say the thought probably passed most of our thinkers at some point in our life. 
So here it is in theses verses our mission carved out for all to see who look for it. 

It’s quite simple, my darling. 

We are born into darkness. 

We have the choice to be born again into the light. 

We choose light, we are the Light. (carrying it through us) 

We choose darkness, we are in darkness. 

The Scientific Evidence that we have chosen light will be that three fruits will appear on our tree of light…..goodness, righteousness and truth. 

Our mission statement:

Ephesians 5:9

“Your mission is to live as children flooded with his revelation – light.”

Notice the verses above remind us that it is through our union with him that we are able to shine bright. 
That is kind of important. 
You can’t turn on a light if it’s not plugged into the wall or hooked up to the source that gives it the electricity. 
Get plugged into the true Source of Light so you can shine your goodness, righteousness and truth everywhere you go today. 

The cool thing about light. 
Once the light is on in a room all the darkness has to flee. It’s the law of light. (Not sure there is a law of light, but it can be proven scientifically) 
Darkness can not exist in a lighted room. 

Google it!!
Light On,

“Synchronization” 
For a few weeks now, I keep hearing the word synchronization. Everywhere I go, I hear it, see it or someone is talking about it.  I realized God was speaking to me so I slowed down and asked Him what He wanted me to learn.   Get ready, because when you ask this, He WILL answer! […]

Gripped 

  
WORTHY THOUGHT

 Are you gripped by the Gospel? 

“Religions are a man’s search for God; the Gospel is God’s search for man. There are many religions but one Gospel.”  -E. Stanley Jones 

Paul an Apostle was set apart for the gospel of God. Paul wrote in Book of Romans the gospel God promised beforehand to us. The good news is a promise written through the Holy Scriptures of old Testament and New Testament centered on His Son Jesus . God sent His own son Jesus a Jew, to come to the earth to share the news, died, arose again. 

Jesus saves all who trust Him. Jesus alone purchased salvation and the message must be preached to the whole world. 

The gospel alone is the power of God to salvation.


               ~ Angela Lipe-Pattengill 

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

-John 3:16
