Journey With Me

When you began your journey with Me, you weren't at all certain about where you'd end up. But you invited Me into your boat. Don't you know that once you invited me in, I took possession of the vessel? Any Captain, upon boarding a ship, to assume command, is given control of that vessel. It then becomes his responsibility to see to the safety and the functioning of the craft and all who are upon it. It's cargo and it's destiny lay within his control and the decisions and commands that he gives.

You are my First Mate, and we are sailing through rough waters right now, but I have Faith in the sturdiness of the boat. Do not fear the wind and the waves. Stand your watch and keep your trust unshaken. Many things will shake around you, but fear not, for I hold you in the right hand of My righteousness and no man can pluck you out of My hand!

I've chosen you and equipped you. Use the authority I placed upon you to speak My name and change the situation and circumstance. This is not just about you and I, although Our relationship is of utmost concern to Me. In truth, there are others that are watching Our teamwork and how we interact and flow together will have life long bearing on their own walk and trust in Me. So as you speak to the storms assailing your life, you are also calming the seas for others who are following at a distance, watching, hungering, hoping for a glimpse of Me.

As they draw closer to us, I will display Myself in grander fashion through you, as long as you stay humble and hearken unto my voice. For as I am lifted up before all men, I will draw them to Myself, but I will use you as the channel that I flow through to touch them and heal and restore, and bless them. So stay alert and be ready at a moment's notice! I may have you change direction and tactic to save some floundering soul. I will then guide you back to the path of our set "next Port of Call."

Do not mind that your boat is small
and the Ocean wide.
All that matters is you've asked me inside.

I stand at the helm, hand on the wheel
I've given you my Word,
And the Holy Spirit's seal.

Peace be still
are the words I still speak
Be still and know it is I you seek!

It is I who steadies your heart
and calms your sea
I alone turn your captivity.

So have no fear
of the storms you see
I've got you safely here with Me.

Stand your watch
Hold you peace-
Speak My Word with complete release.

I'm in your boat
I'll see you through
I'm committed to the journey, how about you?

NEM 6-30-2010

(CEV) Mark 4:35-40 That evening, Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's cross to the east side." So they left the crowd, and his disciples started across the lake with him in the boat. Some other boats followed along. Suddenly a windstorm struck the lake. Waves started splashing into the boat, and it was about to sink. Jesus was in the back of the boat with his head on a pillow, and he was asleep. His disciples woke him and said, "Teacher, don't you care that we're about to drown?" Jesus got up and ordered the wind and the waves to be quiet. The wind stopped, and everything was calm. Jesus asked his disciples, "Why were you afraid? Don't you have any faith?"

Today (Sat June 12, 2010) while in intercession I was given the following Word on Disobedience. So I checked in with my Dad, Pastor Rusty Bowles and he shared a Word and Vision from God that he received today while also in intercession. I pray that we heed the Word of the Lord.

"You said you would serve me, but you've yoked yourself to things I did not yoke you to nor intend for you.
You were not created to be beasts of burden, but mirrors of My Glory.
But you have rebelled and wanted things your way, and in seeking your own you've forsaken My throne and the place of rule I set up for you.
Return to Me. Let Me remove your burdens and destroy your yokes. Repent of your rebellion. Repent of prostituting my Glory. Repent and be restored.
For my heart is broken over your rebellion. My heart breaks breaks for you. Return to Me before you are completely broken down and without defense before your enemies who wait to pounce on you.
Truly it is my mercy that you are not destroyed. It is my loving kindness that seeks you out. My love woos you. No longer be stiff necked and proud-refusing to see. Oh, you see the things surrounding you, but do you yet not understand?
It is only by My Hand that you can stand in these times. It is only by My Hand will you be strengthened and restored.
Break your unholy alliances and be yoked to them no more. Your ways are not My ways. Come up higher- where you were meant to be. Gather yourselves and come now to Me.
I will be covering for you babies, I will be food for your children. I will be light for your leaders and song in your hearts- strength for you journey. just lay aside your burdens- put them on Me. Now is the time for you to be set free from the toils of your labor and to labor with ME.
Build up the waste places- Restore the breach, tear down the idols, For I AM in easy reach.
Come, I will be found of you, and will show you the way. Now is the time. This is the Day."
What Dad heard and saw:
I had a vision this morning of Pastors standing in LARGE pulpits that suddenly were suddenly engulfed in flames that consumed them. Others were standing in small pulpits and had Holy spirit fire erupting all around them burning up all the opposition and bringing restoration.
This is part of what God told me during prayer this morning:
“If you want My will to be done in the earth, then permit it to be done in your lives first. Do not look for My will to be done through rebellious vessels.”

Unholy Alliances part 2

Besides the scriptures given on the day of fasting, God spoke at length with me.
One of the things He shared was that unholy alliances can be as simple as believing wrong!

When the 12 spies went out to spy Canaan Land, 10 came back with an evil report. If you look at what they said, on the surface it didn't appear to be bad, did it? It spoke the facts of the fortified cities and the giants int he land... but the reason it was an evil report was because those 10 did not line their words or thinking up with what GOD had already spoken to them.

God said, "I have given you this land." They said, "We are not able to do this. They are giants and we are grasshoppers in their eyes and our own." Their "said" did not line up with God's "said".

So, what unholy alliances have you aligned yourself with that say things about you and your circumstances or abilities that are contrary to what God has said about you? What things are you relying on, instead of relying on solely on Him? What have you agreed with or agreed to allow in your life, that God is not agreeing to or with?

These are the things you must let go of and get rid of!

When I queried Him about certain situations that had me troubled He told me to agree with His Word and speak it over those situations and circumstances.

Let's pray"

Father right now we set ourselves in agreement with Your Word. We choose to align ourselves with Your will and your way. Every thing that tries to exalt itself against the Knowledge of Jesus Christ we tear down! We take every thought captive in Jesus Name. Thank you for Your thoughts and Plans for us. We receive them and purpose to walk in them in Jesus Name. Amen.

My Fast Day part 1

I promised you some input, I will begin with the Scripture the Lord gave me on Tuesday.

Ps. 27:8 When Thou saidst, 'Seek My Face', my heard said, ' Thy face will I seek.'

Seek -1245 from the Hebrew word baqash: to search out
(by any method, specifically in Worship and Prayer.) to strive after, ask, beg, beseech, desire, enquire, get, make inquisition, procure, (make) request, require, seek (for)

Face 6440 Hebrew from the word pânı̂ym: the face (as the part that turns) accept before time, because of, beseech, countenance, endure, enquire, face, favor, fear of, forefront, heaviness, honourable, mouth, of old time, Presence, was purposed, by reason, shewbread, sight, state, street, throughout, upside down.

Can't live with out You Lord! Will search you out by all methods but especially prayer and worship.

Next He gave scripture that focuses on His Goodness:

1Ch 16:8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
1Ch 16:9 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.
1Ch 16:10 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
1Ch 16:11 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.
1Ch 16:12 Remember his marvelous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
1Ch 16:13 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
1Ch 16:14 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
1Ch 16:15 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;
1Ch 16:16 Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
1Ch 16:17 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
1Ch 16:18 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
1Ch 16:19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.
1Ch 16:20 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;
1Ch 16:21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,
1Ch 16:22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
1Ch 16:23 Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; show forth from day to day his salvation.
1Ch 16:24 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvelous works among all nations.
1Ch 16:25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.
1Ch 16:26 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
1Ch 16:27 Glory and honor are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
1Ch 16:28 Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
1Ch 16:29 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
1Ch 16:30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
1Ch 16:31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.
1Ch 16:32 Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.
1Ch 16:33 Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.
1Ch 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever.
1Ch 16:35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.
1Ch 16:36 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel forever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

When we have relationship, then this next thing becomes a natural progression:

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (Same 2 words as found in Ps. 27 for seek and face.)

I love this scripture in the Jerusalem Bible:
Psalm 46:10 Jerusalem Bible: Pause a while and know that I Am God, exalted among the nations, exalted over the earth.

I will leave you with these to ponder and then I'll come back
and fill you in... Shalom!

Follow up to The Day to Fast and Pray

Hello Dear Ones,

I received texts and emails that many of you were answering
that call to fast to pray. God Bless You.
Oh how it warmed my heart that the Family was rallying!

Today I read some of my emails (yes I fasted my computer all day yesterday!) and had some responses to the post, and the day yesterday- a couple of interesting posts that were written by others who don't know me and had not read my post. So am posting those here for you to read.

If you have any feedback, or things you would like to share about your day of fasting and prayer- please email me or post a comment!

"Thank you for posting this, Nancy. I am definitely taking it seriously! Heavy.... yes. Here's a piece I received this morning from Lloyd Phillips, via email. I will tac it on as they both relate to the U.S." - Vicki

"In recent weeks I have been carrying an intercessory burden that will come and go. It’s unlike anything I have felt since the spring of 2001. But I needed more specific definition about the burden I was carrying. As I was out early in the morning praying I asked the Lord for more clarity. As I sat on a log and prayed I heard clearly the words “don’t allow the enemy to sneak up behind you, look into the mirror to see what’s coming.” I actually felt like looking over my shoulder to see if someone were coming up behind me. But in my mind I could see a picture of looking over my shoulder to see anything coming up behind me.

When I got home I told my wife what the Lord had spoken to me and asked her for her impression on what it might mean. She said when I told her what was said she immediately thought of the rear view mirror on her car that says “the objects in the mirror are closer than you think.” We thought that whatever is attempting to “sneak up on us” is closer than it seems.

Interpretation is a very critical part of a revelation and worth spending time, prayer, and council over. I mentioned the word I’d received to a prophetic pastor friend of mine over the phone, and as I did I had a picture of the Greek hero Perseus whom, you will recall, defeated Medusa. Medusa could turn anyone into stone who looked upon her. But by using his polished shield as a mirror he was able to look around objects to “see what was coming” and by seeing Medusa's reflection in his “mirror”, he was able to safely behead her. He even used that head as a weapon in the future. I had not thought of this story for a possible interpretation before that moment. As soon as I shared it with my friend, he exclaimed that instantly, when I mentioned looking in the mirror to see what was coming, he thought that what is behind us is our history, and the history of our government is Greece, the birthplace of the first republic and inspiration for our republic. When I then brought up an example from Greek mythology he couldn’t keep it to himself.

He thought their history is our history but they have left the balanced blessing of a republic and are suffering grave consequences for doing so. We likewise have left the balanced government of a republic, although much more recently, and are beginning to feel the consequences of doing so. Could it be that what we have been watching in Greece is just around the corner for us, and closer than we think?

I have more to say on this in my next message.

Hos 5:8 "Blow the ram's horn in Gibeah, The trumpet in Ramah!
Cry aloud at Beth Aven, 'Look behind you, O Benjamin!"

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns -- June 2, 2010:
Have you noticed that something has changed in your spiritual atmosphere? Yet, because you have not identified this change, it just seems strange. I have released the power of grace over My people. Evaluate how it affects your soul and your environment and remember it, for surely the enemy is preparing to attack again. And, when he does you will notice the change and be prepared to fight against him. Be aware and be sensitive to these spiritual shifts, go with the flow, and act accordingly, says the Lord.
Romans 13:11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

Dear Nancy,

Here is what I saw in the spirit as I prayed yesterday.
1. Church members pointing fingers at each other used by the accuser of the brethren. The fingers eventually were turned by the finger of God to themselves for repentance.

2. Harvest field of hungry, abused people and the Body of Christ reaching out, led by children and youth, saying, “How can I help you?”. “What do you need?’” The need would be met –body, soul and spirit, many times by signs and wonders. ‘the glory of God was in back of them and no harm could come near them. (Is.58:6-8)

3. Saw the church say to the Lord, (bowing down), “How may I serve you?” Followed by another vision of the Bride saying “What can I do for You today, Honey?”

4. (Is.58:11-12) I saw a garden of flowers flourishing because of the giving manifested. I saw beautiful houses representing the church was to re-build—to build anew—(better than before). Is.58:12 All new, beautiful houses being built whose foundation was Jesus Christ. Many people were placed in new houses, e.g. Haiti—better houses than they ever had. Spiritually, these families are houses of the Lord, turning to Jesus as their source of life for everything.

5. Kept hearing “”I want a broken and contrite heart.” And “Choose this day whom you will serve—God or Mammon.” I then heard the song, “I have decided to follow Jesus.”
I'll post some of what I personally received tomorrow.
