2 3 4 Get Ready For More

          

This morning I awoke at 2:34 am and I heard the Lord say…. 234 Get ready for more.

I got excited because I have been getting a whisper from the Lord for months now with the word “Windfall“.   

wind·fall

ˈwin(d)fôl/

noun

    * a piece of unexpected good fortune, typically one that involves receiving a large amount of money.”windfall profits”

    * synonyms:

    * bonanza, jackpot, pennies from heaven, stroke/piece of luck, godsend, manna from heaven

As I looked up the definition these 2 synonyms are what caught my attention.

           godsend, manna from heaven. 

So I asked the Lord to unpack this MORE; and Windfall for me….
I was taken to Deuteronomy 11. 
 “And if you will indeed obey my commandments that I command you today, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, he will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the later rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil. And he will give grass in your fields for your livestock, and you shall eat and be full. ~ Deuteronomy 11:13-15

 “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way that I am commanding you today, to go after other gods that you have not known. ~ Deuteronomy 11:26-28
                    Bingo! Jackpot!
                    The godsend

god·send

ˈɡädˌsend/

noun

1. a very helpful or valuable event, person, or thing.

2. synonyms:

3. boon, blessing, bonus, plus, benefit, advantage, help, aid, asset; More
Did you catch that right there in the synonyms? -MORE 

The benefit, bonus, advantage, help and MORE is in the godsend, God himself and also His Angels He has put on assignment for you. 

The manna from heaven (miraculous provision from God) that’s our windfall. 

The building up for us to receiving more, the key that unlocks the more, the open heaven that makes way for the windfall is in our obedience to God and His Word. 
We build upon each right choice, each moment of uncomfortable obedience we tackle, that is what makes room for more and opens up the blessings of the Lord, our manna from heaven, our windfalls to fall down. 

Where there once was / God now supplies:

Lack / Abundance

Division / Divine Connections

Weakness / Strength

Curses / Blessings 

Fear / Courage

Grief / Hope

Confusion / Clarity

Despair / New Resolve

Disappointments / Determination

Sickness / Health 

Brokenness / Wholeness

Rejection / Protection

Rebellion / Obedience

Worry / Peace 

        2…3..4… Get ready for more!

Mundane 


Mundane 
I keep hearing this word! 

You know when a word hits and just keeps bouncing and boomeranging around until it lands….

Well that is what has happened with Mundane.  
The quick definition is-

Mundane: Common, ordinary, lacking excitement or interest, dull

I was asking the Lord what He was trying to show me with this word… 

Today I got this phrase upon waking ….

My Messages & Miracles Come in the Mundane 

I knew Daddy was Downloading to me but I had not stopped long enough to do the full unpacking. 
A new friend shared on Facebook tonight that

David found his destiny while searching for his dad’s lost donkeys. 

She even mentioned that word…

           Mundane 

So I want to encourage you all as you pack those lunches, wipe those counters, wash those dishes, fold those mountains of clothes, care for your children or parents or spouses or whatever it is you find yourself to be stuck in over and over like the movie GroundHog Day… 

          

             Don’t despise the mundane. 
Mundane is where God is conditioning you.  

Mundane is where God is preparing you.

Mundane is where God is building you.

Mundane is where God is growing you. 

Mundane is where God is refining you.

Mundane is where God is restoring you.
Every day, every moment, every second of the common, ordinary and even dull duties- those mundane moments are what is birthing God’s messages and miracles.  
I love this great quote:

“The glory of tomorrow is rooted in the drudgery of today. 
Many people want the glory without the cross, and the shining light without the burning fire, but crucifixion comes before coronation.”~ Streams In The Desert 

So don’t throw away your confidence—it brings a great reward. 

You need to endure so that you can receive the promises after you do God’s will. ~ Hebrews 10:36-37 

My friends, we are not those who give up hope and so are lost; but we are of the company who live by faith and so are saved. ~Hebrews 10:39 VOICE

Release Your Seeds 

  
This morning after speaking with a friend and hearing about a need, I parted ways saying:

we will continue to pray for you.”

The Holy Spirit quickly spoke to me and said- “You have the seed to meet their need.” 

I thought, what? Our Van is back in the shop, I was given that seed, Oh Lord, I plan to use it for XYZ.  Lord, that will make them uncomfortable, …it isn’t even enough. What if something happens and we need it? 

Again God said- “you have the seed to meet their need.”

I stopped and did not argue anymore. I did not rationalize, I did not think of a million more excuses why or was it really God speaking or not. I chose the uncomfortable obedience.  

I then heard as I did what the Lord asked of me- “your obedience is worth far more than your sacrifice

So God had me thinking on this word for you-

We all have needs- but we all also have seeds.

       It’s time to release your seeds! 

What are some seeds we have? …

Time

Items

Food

Money

A ride

A word

A smile……

How many of us have houses full of items and someone is needing something that we have in our overflow? 

We are so quick to take to Goodwill but why do we find it uncomfortable to pass along our gently used items to someone in need that we know could use them? 

How many of us have way more than enough food that we could share a meal with a few? Or buy someone a meal? Or a bag of groceries? 

How many have an extra dollar or two or three or five or twenty or fifty they can pass along? 
What if we just denied ourselves and sacrificed that pedicure or manicure or a round of golf or one less meal eaten out or that expensive and way overpriced coffee for a day or two and meet someone else’s needs?  

How many have a few moments to stop, listen, pray, or to help comfort someone with a warm smile, hug, or encouraging word? 

What if – Instead of just hearing someone express a need, we were all stirred to be obedient to the Lord and to provide whatever seed we had to meet their needs?  

It doesn’t have to be hard… Or confusing or be some grand….extravagant…. gesture ….Or even made into a big deal at all. 


Simply when you hear of a need, provide the seed, whatever it is, to help meet that need.
You never know what seed someone else could be holding that will meet your needs one day. 

We all have the seeds to meet someone’s need!  

Release your seeds!

Arise Sleeping One

  
You have been tucked away secure in your safe little nest for far too long.  

It is time to get back up and learn to fly! 

Arise Sleeping One! 

We all have seasons needing that protective and secure nest to shelter us from the harsh elements of life. 

We sometimes may need others to feed us for awhile as we are removed from the wide open spaces so we can heal and be strengthened and built up again so our wings will be stronger when it’s time to take that leap! 

Don’t let your courage wane.  Don’t let fear keep you curled up in your warm and safe surroundings. You can’t grow or even begin to realize what heights you will be able to soar to unless you are willing to take the next step to leave the nest.  

Arise! 

Get ready to fly!
