Think on These Things: The Art of A Focused Mind

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” ~PHILIPPIANS 4:8 To think on things that are ‘good’ in the face of those things that seem to weigh our minds down seems like a call to ignore reality. If not this, many of us struggle to figure out what exactly to think on, defaulting to just, “Jesus is Good.” Now, there is nothing wrong with that thought, because it is absolutely the truth, and we oftentimes, especially in the midst of trials, need to remind ourselves, but I believe that there is a deeper meaning to it all, both the good things and Christ being the Best Thing! THINK ON THE WORD AND PROMISES In the face of hardship and tragedy, we are to think on the Word and Promises of God that He has already spoken over our circumstances. If you …

Chase the Birds of Prey: Word on Harvests

On July 11, 2018, the Lord Jesus in His goodness, gave me a word of encouragement about attacks that come during the times His children are supposed to be bringing in their harvests. And recently He encouraged me to share this with you all, even as I encourage myself. When the word had first been given, it had not even been a full twenty-four hours before the enemy began attacking me concerning faith for a move of God that was coming within a certain amount of time.

I began to confess my fear and shaking faith in the Lord and then I asked Him for understanding. When I asked, immediately He brought the image of the familiar spirits to my mind. WHY? Because He had to remind me that every thought and every feeling is not my own. That the enemy is a deceiver and will do his darndest to rob us …

A New Year of Promise: A Word for Rosh Hashanah by Briana Lassiter

Rosh Hashanah is a special holiday for me. I didn’t really know what it was until last year. The morning we were set to close on our new home, the Lord and I were having a conversation about everything that had happened and I was telling Him how surreal everything felt and thanking Him for keeping His promises to me. He reminded me how earlier that year He had begun speaking to me about restoring things that I had lost and He had promised me a home, a place where I would finally be able to rest and heal. This was significant in many ways because I had just finished several years of moving every year to a different place and enduring very difficult illnesses on top of that. Healing and rest seemed like it would never come, and yet only a couple months after He had promised me a home of my own, I was closing on it and moving in. He shifted seemingly impossible situations upside down for me. As He reminded me …
