Get Ready for the Ants!

antsGet ready for the Ants!                                                                            

“Go to the Ant…Consider her ways…(Proverbs 6:6)”

We have recently been under attack – by ants. Armies of them, seemingly without number and without end have found their way into my kitchen.  In Texas in summer, there is a lot of heat so outside it gets very dry and the ants are thirsty.  Sometimes they come inside for water and if they find some food, they call all their little buddies to come and join the party.  Usually when you see one, you see many more.

Once a food source is found, they somehow contact their fellow ants.  Silently they organize and follow a little scent trail to move back and forth, an assembly line of epic proportions, carrying food and water back to the colony.

That is what happened in my kitchen.  The ants found a food source and soon my kitchen counter was overrun with ants.  There were so many of them!  Even though I hit them with window cleaner over and over (I had no insect spray and it was the most organic thing I could find under my sink!) they still kept coming.  They would not be denied.

My husband called the exterminator, who came two days later to spray and set out traps.  We have had a couple of minor bouts with them in the days following, but nothing like this first invasion!

This speaks to me!  I agree with Jennifer Eivaz that as prophets we live prophetic lives, and that God makes everything happen in my life for a reason — to speak to me so I can speak to others!

The Bible says, “Go to the ant…consider her ways… (Prov. 6:6)”. Have you ever stopped to do it?  I hadn’t, although I have heard this saying hundreds of times.  This pushed me to do it, and knowing God was speaking, I began to meditate on ants and their habits.  The first thing I thought of was how industrious ants truly are!  They store up provision and never rest.  Next, I realized they are also totally annoying!

I looked up the symbol of the ant in my dream interpretation resources and it had both a positive connotation and a negative connotation.  I found both to be true!   Because of this, I believe God was speaking to me through these little six-legged wonders.

First, on the negative side — who really LIKES ants???  An entymologist, perhaps, but for most of us, they just don’t float our boats.   Although as children we may have had ant farms, we don’t house them intentionally as pets.  For most of us they are simply an annoyance and a pest.  As for me and my house, they don’t belong in my kitchen!

Even though I had sprayed the ants with window cleaner, as I was mopping them up with paper towels some were still alive and crawled up my arms and hands – yuk!  Their touch on my flesh made my skin feel creepy, and still does when I stop and think about it.  In fact, I apologize to you if your brain is telling you that you feel something crawling on you now, too!

On the positive side, they have many admirable traits.  They carry up to 50-times their own body weight; they are selfless and have only the community good in mind; they never stop working, they care for their young as top priority in the mound and put them before themselves.  They are models of hard, focused, diligent work.  They know their assignment on behalf of the colony and do ONLY that job – a worker ant doesn’t try to be the queen!  They live out of sight underground until they come out for the community good, to forage for food, water or to protect the mound.

Listen, church – I believe God is speaking to us.  We need to practice what the Word says, and GO to the ant!

The Hebrew word for GO here is halak.  This word has a number of different uses throughout the Old Testament, among them “go”, “walk” and “come”.  However, in studying this tiny little word with the giant meaning, I found it also means “act”, “become” and “becoming increasingly”, as well as “grew steadily”, “grew continually”, “lead”, “march” and a plethora of other meanings.  All contained in this little two-letter word, GO!

This shone a whole new light on this passage of scripture!  This means the author of Proverbs 6:6 may have meant for us to, “act like the ant…” or perhaps to “become as the ant (is)…”  The author may even have meant for us to “become increasingly like the ant…” or “grow continually (to become) as the ant…”, to “lead as the ant (leads)…”, “march as the ant (marches unceasingly)…”  or any one of these dozens of different uses for this word.

Hmmm.  Food for thought, no?

Well, here is where I believe this tiny little proverb fits into a great big prophecy.  Remember the “whodunnit” movie based on the game CLUE?  It had multiple endings, so we would go to see the movie with ending A, then go back to see it with ending B.  Incredibly, when God first started to talk to me about the ants, He spoke to me on two different levels, two different paths, two totally different thought processes about what the ants truly meant….two different endings or interpretations of the same saga!

Here is what God showed me for ending “A”:

The ants are negative thoughts, based on political, economic and cultural circumstances and what the media is feeding us.  These negative thoughts and feelings have marched on us, an army, a home invasion of sorts into our respective houses, and they will not be denied!  Uninvited, they storm our fortresses by the scores because they have found a “food source” in our hearts and in our minds — our fertile imaginations and attitudes!  With no barrier to keep them out these negative thoughts and emotions travel at will, unhindered and set up shop.  What’s worse is they call their other friends, even more negative than them, to come and join the feast!

We have no natural protection against these thoughts!   I heard recently that the human mind defaults to the negative.  We have to consciously WORK to stay positive!  That is why the scripture reads in Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”  This means do not repeat negative things!

Watch what comes into your eye gates and ear gates and what comes out your mouth gate!  Because what comes in MUST go out.  Proverbs 4:23 says, Above all else, guard thy heart; for out of it flows the issues of life.”  Why?  Because, “Out of the fullness of heart the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45).”   What you speak, you hear; and what you hear, you believe!  This just perpetuates what the enemy is trying to do in our lives – make us say and stay negative!

BUT GOD!  He is the TERMINATOR, and He even says, “I’ll be back!”  Just as my husband had to call the bug guy to take care of our invading army of ants, so we are to call in our ultimate BUT GOD exterminator, Jesus – “The Terminator” –  to take care of the invasion of these negative thoughts!  He will come in and spray them down with Holy Ghost, wipe them up with His mighty right hand and set out the traps to kill off the remainder of the colony of negativity.

As a final note, precautionary measures were required to keep the ants from coming back.  We had to make sure everything stayed clean and we didn’t leave any food sources out to attract them back.  In the same way, we MUST use our spiritual weapons, “…for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds…” (2 Cor. 10:4 KJV).  We must use our FAITH, our JOY and our PEACE as offensive weapons and put into practice what the Bible says to do!  We must actually use the wisdom that He has given us in His word – speak positive, think positive, be positive.   No stinking thinking!  That just attracts them.

Realize that you are not perfect, and we do not live in a perfect world!  I have had a couple more bouts with these ants in my kitchen, the heart of my home, albeit in smaller numbers.  I also continue to have bouts of negative thoughts in my heart, although they are less frequent and less intense than they have been in the past.  Just understand this might happen to you, too!  Don’t be too hard on you.  Cut yourself some slack and give yourself grace.  None of us have arrived yet!

Just let God be God, and in this way not only will we be able to wipe out any negative thoughts and thought patterns that we have developed, but we can keep them from coming back and bothering us again!

Here is Ending “B”:

The second scenario of this invasion of ants is a lot more exciting.  God spoke and told me that in this scenario, the ants are the next generation of worshipers that are heading in droves to the church, into the arms and the heart of God.  They are seeking and searching, and they will find!  God says whoever seeks shall find and whoever asks will receive.  Whoever knocks, the door will be opened to him!

Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7 NLT).”

This next generation will catch wind of the food, the fresh manna, the new wine, and they will come, and they will come, and they will come without end…and they will not be denied!

They are hungry, past famished to the point of starvation.  They want something but don’t know what, and they have sent out their “scouts” into the different arenas…new age, the occult, satanism.  They have searched long and hard, and at long last, they have found — Jesus!

Now they will come, a mighty invasion unlike anything else we have ever seen before!  There will be countless numbers of them, armies without end.  There will be so many of them they will be crawling all over us, all over the hands and the arms of Him that loves them.  And some of them will make our flesh feel “creepy”… however, that is when our BUT GOD exterminator will show up!  He will exterminate all our religious spirits and wipe us clean until there is nothing left but unity, compassion and love.

I believe just like the positive characteristics of the ant so will be this group that comprises the end-times church, unseen since the second chapter of Acts.  They will carry more than their own weight, be selfless and community minded; tireless, care for their young as a top priority; they will be diligent workers; they will be focused and do their job with no hidden agendas.  They will be humble and live only to promote their Lord and Savior, King Jesus!  This group will be the ones to see His face in the earth as he returns to catch His bride into the clouds.

So shall the church again be, in the Name of Jesus!  Arise, end times church!  Arise and March!

Miracles Under the “Big Top”!

tentMiracles under the Big Top!

Darryl and I ministered at a tent revival this past weekend in the Austin area.  We had so many miracles happen it was unbelievable…but we believe!!

A lady who was 75% deaf in one ear and 50% deaf in the other regained hearing

Spinal stenosis – cured!

A man got a new back, new shoulder and grew several inches

Legally Blind – said she could see 50% better!!

Crushed pelvis – healed

Crushed knee, wrist and shoulder – healed

3-stroke victim – legs grown out and able to lift his knees – not able to before Jesus healed him!  Previously had felt tingling and numbness in his leg, healed!

Fibromyalgia healed

Depression gone

Diabetes gone, new pancreas (several!)

3-people received tongues

Dozens of prophetic words and words of knowledge, and so many more miracles happened, I cannot even recount them all. 

So many new smiles, smiles that had been buried under pain!  When the pain left, the smiles returned!

God still heals!  Jesus is AWESOME!!!

God is Giving Bundles of Blessings!

balloons2Balloons of Blessings!  Recently I saw balloons of blessings in the spirit!  As I prayed a hole opened over me in the ceiling and there were balloons hanging all around it.  I reached up into the air and started pulling the balloons down.  I pulled the first one down, but amazingly it was still up there and also in my hand!  I kept pulling the balloons down over and over, but it didn’t diminish their number!  The balloons of blessings were still there around this hole in the ceiling, no matter how many I pulled down.

I pulled down the balloons in front of me and somehow I saw balloons behind me, too, so I grabbed them as well!  As I did I was pulling these balloons INTO me.  I had balloon ribbons wrapped all around my hands, so many of them I couldn’t hold them all!  Then God wrapped them all up like a big flower bouquet and handed them to me!   The rope of balloon ribbons was so big –  an incredibly huge, beautiful vine!  In my hands I had balloons of so many colors, silver metallic ones that shone so brightly, white and gold ones, multi-colored ones — an exquisite display of the blessings of God!

Let it Go!  I was holding this vine of ribbon strings very tightly against my chest, holding onto these balloons of blessings, when the Lord reminded me that His blessings are given to us to give to others.  He said, “Let it go!”

I did, and I felt such a glorious freedom!  The weight was gone from my chest, the weight of trying to hang onto these blessings of God!  My heart exploded inside of me from the joy and the passion of the love that was just given away!  God used me to give away His blessings!

In this season, He will use you, too!  I believe that God has been speaking to all of us recently about the changes that are coming, and they are GOOD changes!  He is giving us bundles of blessings to be set free and given away to others.  Trying to keep them all is too much work when he has so many available.  No matter how many you choose to pull down from the heavenlies, their number will never be diminished!  Give as much as you can, and then go back for more!

God will even bundle them all up and give them to you at once!  Be looking for bundles of blessings to arrive all at one time!  He is not just giving you blessings from the future.  He is even giving you the ones that are BEHIND you – blessings that you have missed out on from the past!  He knows where they are and wants to bless you with them.  Trust Him to do it!

Reach up, grab your blessings in prayer and then turn them loose on the world around you.  You will feel so amazingly, gloriously free!  In this season, God wants you to have all of the blessings that He intended, even some from the past that didn’t materialize.  His purpose is to bless you and those around you.

You will be carrying someone else’s blessing!  Don’t hang onto the blessings of God.  Give them away, and you will receive more – much more – in return!  He has an unending supply.  Instead, seek Him, then simply reach up and grab some more!

Action Center for Revival

20160615_093150

I should know by now that when something happens over and over to me that God is speaking.  As usual Jehovah Sneaky took me by surprise.   No one can tell me He doesn’t have a supernatural sense of humor!

Over the last couple of months I have had more computer issues than ever before in my lifetime.   It has been a major battle just to keep a computer running as laptop after laptop has crashed, gotten viruses or just flat out died.  In fact, the one I was using for this message has an issue with heat – it runs at such a high temperature that the bottom of it burns the skin and is too hot to touch.  Needless to say, it’s impossible to use the way it was designed – on top of a lap!

Getting creative, I propped it up on stacks of coasters on the kitchen table to let some of the heat escape and turned it on.  What happened next really surprised me!  A screen popped up that I have never seen before:  The Action Center.  This stunned me because I didn’t ask for any help troubleshooting this problem.  However, I laughed as I read the “HELP” options on this computer screen.  Once again I realized that God has an incredible sense of humor and will use whatever He deems necessary to make His point.

 

Seeking a pattern for Revival.

See, I have been studying Revival.  Not just studying it for information but earnestly looking for a template and seeking a pattern to follow.  We all know that God is a ‘pattern God’, right?

As an example, He gave us the BIBLE (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) to follow – our owner’s manual.  He gave us Jesus as our mentor and our example to follow here in the earth realm and beyond.  He gave us the template of prayer in Matthew 6:9-13, the Lord’s Prayer.  There are other patterns also, including Solomon’s temple and Noah’s Ark.

I understand that He does not need to do anything the same way twice, but sometimes He does anyway!  Knowing this, I was looking for a pattern, an example to follow so I could encourage others to do the same.  In particular I have been studying the Azusa Street Revival.  I am concurrently reading a Frank Bartleman book of the account, William J Seymour’s sermons and the 1906-1908 newsletters that were sent out by the Azusa ministry that set the world ablaze.

 

I was looking for a PATTERN, and I found one!

In researching all of these different sources, I learned that during revival people were saved, sanctified, filled with the Holy Spirit and received their tongues; they were fed, healed and set free from all different types of bondages, in particular religious spirits.  They were released from their fleshly carnality and their pride melted away as they fell prostrate on the floor in the presence of God, sometimes for hours.  Spirits fled as people were delivered of demons and all came to know the God of Heaven in unity with love, mercy and compassion for each other and all of mankind.   What I saw over and over again was that heart issues were resolved in Revival!

Last evening I was in Mark reading about Jesus feeding the 4,000 with seven loaves of bread and some fish (Mk 8:1-10).   While reading this tribute to Jesus’ compassion the Lord gave me a sudden epiphany about Revival:  It is Jesus!  He flashed a vision in front of me of Jesus walking the streets, preaching the Kingdom and healing all who followed Him I suddenly realized that JESUS is REVIVAL!

 

Revival requires “flesh castration”!

Of course, I soon realized the key to becoming more like Jesus is to be less like…well, less like ME.  Although God loves me He has pruned me down to a twig at times to get rid of heart issues – my flesh.   As I recounted this observation to my husband I realized what we need for Revival is a “flesh castration”.  Our flesh needs to become of no account – not able to reproduce, have no seed and therefore no fruit!

This is where the Action Center on my computer screen comes in!  I have been asking God to open my eyes and ears to what He wants to reveal to me, both in His Word and in this earthly realm.  It has been my sincere desire to go deeper with Him as He leads us all into Revival.  So, when I started looking at the different options that my ailing computer offered me for fixing it — from the spiritual viewpoint of leading our hearts to revival — I just had to laugh with God.  All the gold is His, all the silver is His, and every computer screen on earth is His.  He used mine for His Glory today on the ACTION CENTER screen!

ACTION CENTER SCREEN

The Action Center screen listed multiple items that needed my attention.  They are listed below as God showed them to me.

Review recent messages and resolve problems.   Have you been hearing from God?  Have you heard any messages recently that really “hit home”?  These messages have been sent to you directly from Abba.  He is pinging your heart to make you more sensitive to the Holy Spirit, so that He can come in and clean up some issues and take you into Revival.

Action Center has detected one or more issues for you to review.  The Holy Spirit is our ACTION CENTER!  Our Heavenly Father is bringing those issues front and center because He wants to get the problems resolved. You are His child and He wants you in step with Him, in Revival with Him!   He is weeding the gardens of our hearts to remove the issues that keep us separated from Him.  He wants us closer!

  1. Security – no problems with security. Our salvation is secure.
  2. Maintenance – no maintenance issues, either. We read the Word.  We go to church.  We may even be the Pastor or the house Prophet.  Regardless, for some of us, there may be an intimacy that is lacking that God wants restored.  He is taking the first steps to bridge the gap.  Better check #3: “unreported problems”.
  3. Check for Solutions to unreported problems

There are problems on your computer that have not been reported.  Some of these problems might have solutions available.

This is where the work really begins!  God wants NOTHING between us and Him, in fact, Revival demands it!  This is where some of us may skin our knees falling to them!

Is there any unrepented sin?  Any secret sins?  Rebellion?  Disobedience?  Anger?  Dissatisfaction?  These are ‘unreported problems’.  Just because we haven’t spoken about them or confessed them doesn’t mean they don’t exist and that our Father in Heaven doesn’t know about them!  These ‘unreported problems’ are creating distance, blocking the blessings of God.

However, please bear in mind, we have a choice here.  Below this statement is an IGNORE THIS MESSAGE link, a VIEW PROBLEMS TO REPORT link, as well as a CHECK FOR SOLUTIONS button.  I don’t think any of these need spiritual interpretation.  However, simply by virtue of the fact that there ARE options it can mean only one thing:  We have a choice and free will.  We can continue to ignore the issues or we can take a look at them.  The only one who knows how to SOLVE what we see there is God.  He is willing!  Are we ready to come closer and step into revival?  Let’s report those problems, repent and be forgiven!

  1. Troubleshoot a problem with your computer’s hard disk. The OS (Operating System) was unable to open a file on your computer’s hard disk 4-times…Go online for troubleshooting steps.  God has been sending us messages, over and over, about our “HARD DISK” … in other words, our hard heart.   He wants us to talk with Him about it, to come up there (Rev. 4:1).  Go Online for Troubleshooting Steps!   However, because we have free will, once again we have options to either ARCHIVE this message or View Message details.   We are again given the opportunity to IGNORE or TAKE ACTION.  God prefers we act and come up there!  After all, 1 John 4:4 says you are of God and have overcome because He Who lives in you is greater than him who is in the world!
  1. Set up Backup – This is the easiest step of all! Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to be our “Back Up”, to do the things that Jesus proclaimed that He sent Him to do!  He sent Him to be our Comforter – Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby (John 16:7 AMPC).  Simply ask Holy Spirit to open the eyes and ears of our understanding (Eph. 1:18, Mt. 13:13) and to lead us and guide us into all Truth (John 16:13)!  This Truth is Jesus and JESUS IS REVIVAL!  We want Revival and God wants to give it to us!

He will be all of these things and more as we choose to turn to Jesus in Revival!  We all should do a heart-check today to begin to rid ourselves of any residual pride and other sins that still reside in us.  We want to walk into Revival, the sooner the better!  Let’s all work together in Unity toward that end.

Blessings as we march forward into Revival!

Jesus walked

Friend-with-Jesus-clearJesus walked.  He never ran.  He never sprinted.  He never hustled and He never bustled. On the plane a couple days ago He said to me, “You guys are too busy running around.”

He said, “Relax.  Slow down.  Take it easy.  I am walking with you.  The Father ran to you to show you how much He cares.  I never ran.”
He went on, “I rode a donkey once, and my mom rode a donkey when she was pregnant with me, but mostly I just walked.  I walked from town to town, place to place, person to person.”
He finished with, “You are not going to get more done just because you are busy running around.”
He showed me a picture of Himself ministering to the people in front of Him, and another of Him just walking purposefully down a dusty road …. relaxed and walking.  Not running.
This word is for some of us, maybe not all, but definitely some of us.  Receive it if it is for you.  Slow down and walk with Jesus.  Take time to spend with Him, talking to Him, walking side by side on the road.
When we are too busy doing things FOR the King we don’t take time to spend WITH the King.  Do that today.  Spend time with Jesus.

Humidity

FOG

I saw a word out of the corner of my eye – HUMIDITY.  In my mind I knew it said HUMILITY, but I saw HUMIDITY.  I figured God was saying something, so I looked up the definition(1) of humidity.  Incredibly, I found Holy Spirit in every sentence!

*Note:  Holy Spirit is sometimes symbolized as water in the bible and many times in the symbolism of both dreams and visions.

  • Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air.
  • Water vapor is the gaseous state of water and is invisible.
  • Humidity indicates the likelihood of precipitation, dew, or FOG (Favor of God!)
  • Higher humidity reduces the effectiveness of sweating(!!) in cooling the body by reducing the rate of evaporation of moisture from the skin.

The presence of Holy Spirit is invisible, indicates the Favor of God, reduces the effect of “sweating” it, and He keeps Himself from being evaporated” out of your skin!

How awesome is our God!

A Season of Extraordinary Warfare

pork-spare-ribs (1)I was working in my kitchen just now getting pork ribs ready to go into the oven.  They were too big for the pan I was using, so I grabbed a knife to cut some off.  I stopped and pondered for a moment where I was going to put the pieces I cut off, since I’d never had a rack of ribs quite this large and had never had to do it before.  At the same time I was thinking about someone whose spouse has had some health issues.  This person recently said that it will be a season of physical warfare for them.

I heard the Lord say, “It is going to be a Season of Extraordinary Warfare!”

Woman of great faith that I am, I spouted something that must have sounded like Peter…“Oh – NO, LORD!”

He said, “Not like you think!  It will be good!”

I didn’t understand how “extraordinary warfare” could ever be good, and I certainly was not looking forward to it!

Graciously He explained, “Look at the ribs you are cutting because they are too big for the pan!”  At that VERY instant I was in process of slicing off about 8-inches of ribs that hung over the side of the pan. “Those are ‘Spare Ribs’ – leftovers!  You have taken something that is ordinary, bigger than it needs to be and used it.”

He went on, “This will be a time of super-abundance, a time of utilizing the ORDINARY to overcome – it will then become the EXTRA-Ordinary!”

I started thinking of all the applications this has for this season.  Mundane, ordinary tasks will become EXTRA-Ordinary warfare as we use them for God’s Glory!  Our daily commute becomes a time of warfare in the heavenlies as we become intentional and commit that time to Him!

If we believe we receive, right (Mk. 11:24)?  That means if we BELIEVE and we focus on it (making the power flow to it), people will be healed wherever our shadow falls – at the grocery store, at the gas pump and at school (Acts 5:15)!  This means when we pray for rain, we should grab our umbrellas!

My Pastor calls the offering “little preachers”…because every dollar bill is used in evangelism!  My ordinary, required tithe becomes an EXTRA-Ordinary weapon in the hands of those that God has equipped for that purpose!  Warfare!

Even something as simple as cutting off some excess meat can become a weapon in the hands of God!

The Lord will show you how to take the super-abundance of the ordinary, spare rib things of your life – “the leftovers” – and turn them into weapons of warfare for God.  They will then become utilized in this Season of EXTRA-Ordinary Warfare.

You are Unclogged!

gutter

We had a very heavy rainstorm yesterday.  My husband and I watched the torrential downpour from the kitchen window.  One thing we noticed was our gutters were not working.  Rainwater poured out the front and the back of the gutter, but did not go down the way it was designed.  In fact, it was pouring out every way it could other than the way it was supposed to go.   It was obvious the gutters needed to be cleaned, especially since we are expecting rain all week.

As I climbed up the ladder to clean them this morning, I anticipated that they would be full to overflowing with debris, leaves, twigs and mud all the way along the entire roofline.  I must confess I was surprised when I saw a little tiny stack of debris at one downspout.  However, I was still certain there was a messy glob of I-don’t-know-what down inside that downspout, so I bravely stuck my hand in there, expecting the worst!   To my surprise it was just one little twig that had clogged the whole thing!  It went down the gutter sideways and stopped it up at the downspout.  The torrent of rainwater made the leaves stick on top of it, causing the dirt and mud and gravel from the asphalt roof to back up behind it.  The water couldn’t get down there to wash the stuff away and ended up pouring out the front and back of the gutter, as if there was no gutter there at all.

I cleaned them with a smile on my face, realizing that God was speaking!

First, it was a TINY TWIG that clogged up the whole system!  Once the layers of leaves and other junk was removed, the culprit was exposed and eliminated!  I believe that God was saying that for most of us it is probably something TINY that is clogging things up for us and blocking our progress!  Once that one thing is revealed to you by the Holy Spirit, you’ll be ready to roar!

Secondly, once I cleaned the gunk out of the gutter it was fully functional again.  The dirt wasn’t PART of the gutter – it had somehow gotten in there and clogged it up.  Yes, it stopped it from working the way it was designed for a time, but it was still a GUTTER.  The dirt didn’t change it!  It wasn’t permanent — it was only a temporary setback!  Your clog does not define you!  It doesn’t change you, and it is not permanent!  It is temporary and fixable, and in fact, the Holy Spirit is working on your solution right now!

But, even better than that, here’s the best news – even if your gutter is clogged up, the water of the Holy Spirit will still pour out!  You are not stopping Him!!  You are not stopping the forward momentum of the Kingdom of God!  I heard once that on your very best day you didn’t help God at all — but on your WORST DAY EVER you didn’t hinder Him!

He sent Jesus to clean you up and out, to restore you to the manufacturer’s specifications and design for your life.  He will send the help that you need now to get unclogged — and the water of the Holy Spirit will be flowing again in no time!
