Are you smiling? When you think about tomorrow and this new Year of 2013, does your face just break out into this big ole'grin? The Proverbs 31 woman in today's verse wasn't smiling because of her awesome city-leader husband or her gorgeous kids decked in matching crimson outfits or all her real-estate profits. Her smile came from the inner treasure of her deep relationship with God. Do we smile only when everything is perfect?
Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the Lord. I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
2013 will be a great year for you. FEAR NOT. God has made your feet like hind's feet - adapted and well-suited for a victorious climb over any obstacle. Start your walk in your 2013 high places with a smile of faith - & rising joy!
Happy New Year! Join me at our Year-opening Prophetic meeting January 12, 2013 where I will minister to your smiling future. Love you, Lee Andrews
...forgive, if you have anything against anyone. Mark 11v.25
This morning, while washing dishes, I forgave everyone who had offended me in 2012! I went through each month and forgave the January 2012 ones, the February 2012 and so forth. I forgive everyone for everything! I forgive myself! I prayed off every residue of every hurt or injury to my body, soul and spirit from every hit, offence and attack in 2012. I speak my renewed youth as my body, soul and spirit are restored. You may not need to do exactly what I did, but just do what witnesses to your spirit about the close of the year.
FATHER: I shake the 2012 dust off my feet and I fly forward as You lift me up!
I have planted; Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 1 Cor. 3v.6
The giving of increase is definitely upon us as we prepare to close out the old year and step into the new. Heaven's release of increase according to the laws of God ( have you sown and cared for the garden of your life?) won't be held back. He promised that seedtime and harvest would not cease as long as there is an earth- even if it is a crazy, needy Earth. But the question I am hearing is, "Do you have grace to increase?" So often the increase we have believed for comes, but we are not prepared to receive it or maintain it. Those longing for relationships see people come into their lives, but the same weaknesses drive the new people out the same way the old ones scattered! You get the new job, but the new boss and co-workers are soon acting just like the hell you thought you left downtown. You thought "this" would make you happy and now that you have it, (and everybody is congratulating you on getting it) you are still crying secretly.
Let's get delivered from the DESTROYER. Get free from patterns of iniquity embedded into our behavior. Behold, I make all things new! A new you for the new expansion of your influence, your soul-winning power, your strength to get wealth and your healthy appetite for happiness.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger. Luke 2v.12; Jesus was going about all the cities and villages, teaching..., proclaiming,,, & healing every kind of disase and every kind of sickness. Matthew 9v.36 .. The sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings...Malachi 4v.2
Are you sick this Christmas? Just pick up the baby. I never had a baby of my own, but I have picked up a few. Oh, the feeling of their little, lightly-heavy bodies melting into my chest, falling against me. Oh, the baby was mine in that moment! Take up the healing promise of Jesus just the same way. His Miracle Promise is yours in this moment! It is so easy to receive.
At the feast of Christmas, miracles are your portion. Healing is the children's bread!
Merry Christmas from Make Love Your Aim Ministries, from me & Mom to you!
Thou I walk in the midst of trouble, Thou will revive me. Ps 138v.7 NAS; Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will bring me safely through them.(TLB); When I walk into the thick of trouble, you will bring me safely through them. (The Message)
Are you holding on to a "Lord, Do it in 2012" prayer? There are still two weeks left in the year and I am agreeing with you for God to move supernaturally to answer your righteous request. Let Him revive your hope today. Consider His ability to do exceeding abundantly MORE than all you can ask, think or imagine. Consider His willingness. ( I am willing, Jesus said to the leper. Hey, Jesus could have said, "Well, you know..." but He said "Willing!")
FATHER: Remember me before the year ends. I know You are willing!
Write the vision and make it plain...Habakkuk 1v.2
First, write. Proverbs 24 says,"Prepare your work outside, make it ready in the field; afterwards, then, build..." Writing down your vision or dream prepares it for execution. A written dream is like the blueprint of a house. You can (almost) live in it while you build. So first capture your plan on paper. Next, write it so others can read, understand and participate. Every vision requires some help. Before they'll help, they have to see it. I have written things that not even I can understand when I go back over them the next day or the next week. What was I talking about? Other people also assist in clarifying your vision. Make it plain for everybody. Christmas is the season for visions and dreams - and much angelic assistance. Don't waste the season's bounty!
FATHER: I am writing my heart and giving it away for Your Glory!
He (the angel) had a golden censer and he was given very much incense...that he might mingle it with the prayers of all the people of God. And the smoke of the incense (the perfume) arose in the presence of God with the prayers of the people of God from the hand of the angel. Rev. 8v.3
Your prayers are important to God. He cares very much about them. Just as you are busy setting the atmosphere to receive family members home for Christmas, today we read how Almighty God sets the atmosphere to receive your every prayer into His home and His heart. God has a chosen a special fragrance to carry your requests and petitions into His Throne room. What does Grace smell like? I would faint if I could smell overwhelming Love! The perfumer's recipes Heaven gave Moses in Exodus chapter 30 list ingredients for incense and the anointing oil, so perhaps this is the same. Only it was not made with human hands or earthly ingredients! This is the confidence that we have in Him, if we ask anything according to His will, we know He hears us and we know we have the petitions. 1 John 5v.14
FATHER: I pray today and the perfume rises straight to Your heart! I know You hear me and I know I have the answer!
Blessings on your week of praying with sweet taste of Victory in your mouth!
The fear of man bringeth a snare... Prov.29v.25 KJV; Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken and we are escaped. Ps. 124v.7-8 KJV
How will you escape being double and triple-booked for Christmas parties, dinners and get-togethers that you said "Yes" to, but now you dread to attend? Let us quickly get to the root of the problem. The fear of man! You don't want hurt their feelings, they have been so nice to you... The Bible says this fear is a trap. If the trap does not manage to immobilize you, it will still cause you to stumble right on out of the Holy Ghost's flow for your life. You can go live out there without Him if you want to, but it is a dangerous place to be. Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength. (Jer. 17v.5) But Blessed is the man who trust in the Lord. Be led by the Spirit even at Christmas!
Blessings on your weekend of escape into the Everlasting Arms!
Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won't be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at at once - everywhere you look- blessings! Amos 9v.13 The Message Bible
There is something about this we don't like. Something our flesh finds uncomfortable. Things are happening quickly. Very little time to process. Change after change after change. But all the years of your Christian life have prepared you for this moment. Day after fast speedy over-eventful-Day after fast speedy over-eventful Day,our connection to God is divine.
Divine means:of God ( My days are of God)
pertaining to God (My days are all about God.)
proceeding from God (God makes my day!)
devoted to God (My days are devoted to God)
(A devotee or devoted one is a fan. (I'm one of God's biggest fans everyday).
sacred, holy - (My days are holidays- the original meaning of the word "holiday" was a holy day)
And they overcame him because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony...Rev.12v.11 Whoever says to this mountain, "Be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him. Mark 11v.23
Did you ever tell on your brother or sister when you were little kids growing up? Go tell on the devil. Go, tell somebody that the Mountain of A Daughter On Drugs will come down! Go, tell somebody that you have personal proof that the Mountain of Credit Card Debt Will Come Down! There is overcoming power in your testimony of the mountain-moving victories in your life.
If you are facing a mountain today, tell on it by faith. Tell the mountain how big your God is. Don't let the mountain talk to you about big it is. (Worry and Fear will give you scenic Mountain- Tours all day and all night long if you let them.) Go higher!
But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Rev. 2v.4
Today's Living Bible says: Help me to understand your every wish; then I will never have to be ashamed of myself (Ps. 119v.80). God wastes all His wishes on me! He wishes I would go back to my first love. He never wanted to make us robots, programmed to love Him and His ways. He gave us a free will. So will I do a thousand other good and acceptable things with my life and neglect the one thing I am passionate about?
This is a serious time. I don't want God to hold anything against me! Have I left my first love? The Greek word for "first" is protos. It means foremost. Foremost in time, foremost in place, foremost in order or importance. Chief. He is the chiefest of ten thousand. Song of Solomon 5v.10b- Is God first in my heart?
Your first love also speaks of your first work, your passion, your assignment on earth. I understand you might have to make your living in medical billing but in your heart you are an interior designer or a chef.
FATHER: I'm back! Bring my ring and my robe. Kill the fatted calf so You and I can have our very wild, private party today!
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse...Test me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven, and pour out a blessing until it overflows." Chap. 3 v.10
At the MLYA's Saturday meeting, a young lady gave a word about "open window right now" and Sunday my pastor preached on "Open Heaven." I am very aware of how precious and important these days before Christmas and before the end of the year are. Take heed. Don't squander them. This is your Mary season and not your Martha season. Grace helps you get it all done if you first bring the tithe of your time into the Presence of the Lord for prayer and fellowship with Him. While the earth is sleeping in this dormant season for nature, while your household is sleeping, get up pray. Get up and spend time worshipping The Lord under this awesome open heaven. Another intercessor I know saw gifts and money pouring out from heaven. Have you poured any in? Have you tithed? The heavens are open for tithers.
Father: I fall at your feet! Pour heaven's best out on me today!
The scattered sheep...I will gather them...I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick...there will be showers of blessing, Ezekiel 34v. 12, 13,16 &26
Did you scatter some parts of your mind, will or emotions along the winding path of the past year of your life? God wants to gather you together in His arms, like a shepherd would embrace a lost sheep. When He intervenes, there is always deliverance, promotion and a moving forward. Scattering is curse. Think of the woman with a broom at her cabin door, yelling "Scat!" to varmints real and spiritual.
Join me tomorrow for our crowning session on The Anointing to Gather! Let God put a mahogany finish on 2012 and gather your wits, gather substance and gather force.
If you can't be there, let me pray this for you: Father, You have made Time your servant. Close this year to my benefit and to my blessing. Gather me up out of 2012 and bring me forward to 2013 in the Power of Your Spirit.
Sending you finishing strength this weekend! Plan a supernatural Christmas for you family and friends. (Some may entertain angels unaware.)
Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. Prov. 13v.12
You are entering a special season of the year. The world grows melancholy and suicides increase as people look with regret over the past year. They feel hopeless. Even believers take stock of what is missing as the year draws to a close: Will I ever get married? Will I ever have a family? Everybody else seems to have more money, more beauty and more happiness than you. If you choose to let those thoughts build a nest in your head, you will lose hope.
Hope is our anchor and our faith's beginning place. Faith is the evidence of things hoped for. Yesterday morning I was hoping and working (faithfully & frantically) to finish 2 projects that had hit snags with deadlines looming. This morning I am looking at yesterday's dream now fulfilled and sitting in a box on my living room floor. Today is better than yesterday! Take dominion over this rich, Christmas/End of the Year season. It is a dream season to plant and water seeds of hope that will grow trees of life. You might miss a Christmas event or sale, but God will make it up to you. I promise He will!
Father: Lead me into the Christmas Holy of Holies! I finish this year in strong hope and faith!
Join me this Saturday Dec 8 for my lasting teaching session of year. Gather - Don't Scatter Your 2012 Harvest - (You worked so hard.) 10am to 12noon at HBU's Mabee Theater, 7502 Fondren, 77074 I'd love to see you there!
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Eph.2v.10
I was carrying the pages of an article torn from a magazine in a clear plastic holder. It stayed in my purse for several days as I sought time to get it xeroxed and mailed. On the back side there was the title of another article in large, black letters: PASTOR KEN. So off and on, I would look at those letters as I dug through my purse for my keys. NO big deal: PASTOR KEN. But this morning an angel had propped up the clear plastic holder so I would see it first thing when I woke up. PASTOR KEN! My cousin Dickey! His destiny is to be Pastor Ken.
(Ken is his real name). He has no present interest in the ministry and is standing on the far outer edges of a real relationship with the Lord. But the oldest of 7 who has sacrificed for siblings and still travels Texas back country toads to visit cousins I have only heard of, he has a pastor's heart. The Holy Ghost could have used a hammer upside my head to alert me to what Heaven wants prayed. I will pray for their cars, their future wives, their attitudes, a job, the court case but have I abandoned Destiny?
FATHER: My brother is a Pastor. My sister is the Praise Leader. My boss runs across the front of the church and falls out on the altar, knocking over poinsettias. My husband is the usher and he saves me a seat next to him with his Bible in it. Destiny fulfilled for each one.
Blessings on your week of praying Destiny prayers and eating the fruit of what you have already prayed.
Love, Lee Andrews
Plan to join me this Saturday for our closing session of the year- The Anointing to Gather- Gather, don't scatter your 2012 Harvest @ HBU's Mabee Theater, 7502 Fondren, 77074 10am to 12noon.
LEE'S WORD FOR TODAY 1/6/17
SEPARATE FROM PAST BAGGAGE, DIVORCE OLD SIN, MARRY NEW FUTURE IN CHRIST!
Lee's Word for Today 1/6/17
from past baggage
NEW FUTURE IN CHRIST!
And Lot also, which went with Abraham, had flocks and herds and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, for their substance was great...And Abraham said,
"Lot, separate thyself, I pray thee, from me." Genesis 13v.5; ...forgetting what lies behind, straining for what lies ahead. Phil.3v.13
You can't take it with you. "It" means your (unfruitful) way of thinking, your old " it ain't working" way of working. Abraham's nephew was a dear relative, they had so much in common, so many sweet or tough memories shared. How long before we get God saying, "Separate from your old way. There is a new way."
As always with God, you must obey the first step (separate, leave the baggage, drop it,) before the land under your foot's path for the 2nd step appears.
And the Lord said unto to Abraham AFTER that Lot was separated from him:
Lift up now thine eyes from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward. For all the land that thou seetst, to thee will I give it...v.14-17
FATHER: Show me Your new way today! I PRESS TOWARD THE PRIZE!
Love you guys more than you know,
Will you keep silent at this time, Queen Esther? Now that you have prevailed before the King and your petition for deliverance for you and your nation from the evil Haman Hillary, will you decree, reign and use your authority? Not many days hence, about 30, the inauguration of the President God chose and we died for (died to pizza and blueberry pancakes, died to distractions to cry out, some died to fear of voting Republican for the 1st time!)) will be inaugurated.
Though the media is attempting to spread dishonor and rebellion,your intercession for FULL MORDECAI HONOR will crown the event and will also REAP HONOR for you. The honor you intercede for in these 30 days to January 21 is the degree of honor that will (or won't) come to you in the New Year. God is teaching us to reign in this extraordinary season, this amazing Last Days Age. Can you honor a husband if God gave you one, a boss, a mother-in-law, can you honor the Office of the President or the Plan of God? Skimping on honor at this time, will skimp on the Glory of God!
When God's choice is fully honored, - as Mordecai was - God's reward is FULLY given! God gave the people of the nation light ( a new dawn of hope) and gladness and joy and honor.The enemies of the Kingdom were destroyed. Esther 8v.16 Victory is indeed sweet!
....And the king said to Haman/Hillary, what shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?...Haman answered... Let royal apparel be brought which the king has worn(NOTE: THE ANOINTING)
And the horse which the king has ridden
(NOTE: same as David's instructions for Solomon's inaugurations for David's mule to be ridden)and a royal crown be set upon his head.
Let the apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes. Let him array the man (NOTE: divine order- Mordecai was not putting king's robe on himself- but nobility and established order robing him) whom the king delights to honor and conduct him on horseback through the open square of the city(NOTE: We need to pray for the city- the sea of people to OPEN to Trump and not resist him whom Our king has appointed.)Esther 6v.6-9
The King's instructions in Esther 6v.10 Do so to Mordecai the Jew (Make it happen).
Leave out nothing that you have spoken. (Don't mess this up.)
We need a full Mordecai inauguration. Esther (the church) has prevailed before the King.We won. We Arise, We Shine for Our light has come!
