Moving Past Our Devastation

I have to admit I was a little sad that Priscilla was not teaching this week's video session because I enjoyed hearing her so much. However, good ole Beth Moore sure preached a good session this week. Don't you just love to see how God anoints women to preach the Word to other women. I do. Our God is so good and I love Him so. Here are the notes from this week's session:

1. We can have a good idea that's not a God idea. See 2 Samuel 7 and Luke 2:4. David was overwhelmed by the goodness God had given him and his family. And when God referred to the house He would build for David, He was referring to the lineage of David and Jesus!
2. This far moments with God. Satan didn't get what he wanted out of us because we're in bible study searching for more of God. Also, God's calling on your life will always be beyond you so you can allow God to work through you. Do not obey fear.
3. There's a big difference between relief and release.
4. God has come to absolutely mark our lives with His glory. He's come to take us this far it has to be God!
5. God is not just interested in adjusting our lives. He wants us transformed.
6. I don't want a tweak. I want a transformation.....A full fledged so far transformation. Deliverance! We need to let go and let God change us. We could affect 1000 generations for the Glory of God. Let's not be sissies, but yet let's claim our family lines for Christ. PRAY scripture over your family!
7. What will it take to get there? Give your heart to God. Move past the devastation.
8. We've got to move past our devastation with God. 2 Samuel 6:1-10 talks about a hard time for David. He was angry (vs8) and he was afraid (v9). But he got past it. What if he wouldn't have gotten past the devastation? What if we don't get past our devastations? Move on with God!

I love this. Walking with the Lord is the only way to go for me. I need Him so much. I want to get past all the devatations in my life and get on with bringing God the glory.

Love ya'll. Hope you do your homework!

The Anointing: Directed and Guaranteed

What a wonderful, anointed women of the Lord Priscilla Shirer is. I have so enjoyed the first two session of our study of David. I hope you are enjoying this study as well as I am. Here are the notes from session 2 for those that missed the video session:

1. God is not looking for perfect women. He is looking for passionate women.
She referenced 1 Chronicles 13
2. We have a father whose heart for us is love.
3. Having a God awareness is going to cost you something and cause you to make decisions that you would not normally make.
4. The enemy has a three part plan to kill, steal, and destroy. (John 10:10)
5. The anointing not only guarantees you opposition, but it also guarantees you access to God. PRAYER is the most wonderful weapon we have! PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!
6. David's example shows us that the most important thing that we can have is a fresh, ongoing, intimate relationship with God. (1 Chron 15)
7. The anointing not only guarantees you opposition and access to God, but it also guarantees you specific, divine, direction from God. God speaks to us!
8. The more you know God, the more clearly you will be able to hear him!!
9. The anointed are not only guaranteed opposition, access to God, with specific, Divine direction from God, but also we are guaranteed supernatural results when we obey God.

This week God really emphasized to me the importance of prayer. I need to pray more and increase my time alone with God. There is power in prayer and I intend on unleashing God's power through my prayer life. I hope you will too.

Looking forward to seeing my sisters on Tuesday,

The Anointing: Established and Empowered

Today begins the weekly blog that I'll be doing along with the study on David called "Anointed, Transformed, and Redeemed" by Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore, and Kay Arthur. For those of you in San Antonio, our bible study group meets on Tuesdays at Community Bible Church. Let me know if you're interested. For those of you outside of San Antonio, I pray the information posted will make you want to do this complete study or at least bless you in some way.

Priscilla Shirer began the study yesterday with a session on being anointed. Wow! She's a powerful speaker. Here are the notes I took from her session with a little person interjection:

1. First Chronicles 14:2 tells us that David knew two things: He knew WHOSE he was and he knew WHO he was. The Lord had made him king. God is the source of everything in our lives! We all need to remember that as Christians, we've got a grand Daddy in heaven. Not just any Daddy, but the one that created the heavens and the earth. Priscilla did a great job of giving a description of our heavenly father, but you can click on the following link to get another description: (You really should watch this!) So, when you're having a bad day and it seems that this world is out to get you, go to the mirror and ask yourself, "who's your daddy?". Then remember, He is Lord of Lord and King of Kings.

2. The word "established" is the same word used in Psalm 119:90 to talk about how the Lord established the earth or founded the earth. That's means God establishes you with His mighty power.

3. The Philistines heard that David had been anointed.

4. The Anointing is "a divine empowerment or a divine enablement to accomplish God's purpose for your life".

5. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the anointing of God rests on your life. What an awesome thing! As His child, I am anointed!!! See 2 Peter 1:3 and 1 John 2:27

6. The anointing guarantees opposition. In 1 Chronicles 14:8 it says that ALL came up against David when they found out he was appointed. It's the same with us. Satan doesn't want us to succeed for Christ and we will have opposition. But, we've got a big Daddy to call on!

7. David's first mission as king was to bring back the ark of God, which represented the presence of God. Exodus 25 states that God would be where the ark was. David wanted God at the center of everything! We need God at the center of everything!

8. Personally bringing back the ark of God means setting up the presence of God as the central focal point of every day decisions you make. Wow! Think about this! What if we were to include God on every decision we make. What if we were to unleash His Mighty Power on our lives in this way by following Him in every decision?!?!?

Post your thoughts on these comments or email me and I'll post them for you. (
