His Precious Thoughts About Us

Did you know that God thinks about us? Does this give peace or cause a twinge of fear? When we understand what the Bible says it will bring us peace and comfort.

Psalm 139:17-18 reveals the types of thoughts He thinks concerning us. It says, “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!  If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.”

According to this Scripture, the Lord has more than just a few  good thoughts about us. In fact, we cannot count the total sum of them.

We live in such a negative world that people have a difficult time sharing a pleasant thought about another. But despite the negativeness of this world, God can’t stop thinking good thoughts about us.

His thoughts about us are more than good thoughts, they are precious thoughts. When something is precious it is valuable, priceless, beyond the limit of a price tag. When something is precious it is important, significant, and it matters. When something is precious it is treasured, very dear to the heart. When something is precious it is cherished, esteemed very highly. And we are the somethings that are precious and loved, appreciated, respected, esteemed, treasured, cherished, prized and held very dear to His heart.

When He thinks about us He thinks to Himself how valuable and  important we are to Him, how much He treasures us and cherishes us, and how precious we are to Him.

His thoughts are this way because His love for us is unconditional. We cannot earn His love by doing good works. His love for us is given freely. Nor can we lose His love by behaving badly.

Did you know that God does not have bad children? He does have  children that have done bad things, that’s called sin. And what did He say to those that wanted to stone the woman that was caught in the act of adultery? “He who is without sin cast the first stone.”  And one by one her accusers walked away. And what did He say to this woman? “Your sins are forgiven, go and sin no more.” He could not do this if His thoughts towards her were wicked.

It does not matter what we have or have not said in the past, He still loves us!

It does not matter what we have or have not done in the past, He still loves us!

It does not matter if we are rich or poor, He still loves us!

It does not matter if we are educated or uneducated, He still loves us!

Roman 5:8 comforts us with these words, ” But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

His love for us is without conditions. There are no requirements to be met in order to be loved by Him. In fact, whether we love Him or not, He still loves us. He is for us and not against us. John 3:16  says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God loves us so much that He gave His best, His Son, Jesus Christ to redeem us. He couldn’t do this if He thought we were not worth redeeming.

Jesus Christ loved us so much that He willingly shed His blood on the Cross to save us from our sins, to heal us of all sickness and diseases , to set us free from all bondage and promises to make us whole. Jeremiah 31:3  assures us, “Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” In order to redeem us His thoughts had to be pure and wholesome about us.

He loves us unconditionally, and thinks only the best about us.

The Power of Unity

There is spiritual power released when people join together in unison to accomplish a task. It does not matter whether the purpose is for good or for evil–supernatural power is released, and dreams and visions come to pass.

Do you remember the historical event recorded in Genesis 11: 1-9 called the “Tower of Babel”? Why were these people able to accomplish the vision of the tower? Because they were in unity, the people were of the same mindset, and they spoke the same language, and they put their faith into action. Even though, the motives of their hearts were wrong, (they wanted to build a name for themselves), they were able to accomplish a great feat. This act was so great that it caught the attention of the Lord, and so the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit went down to see the great city and the great tower they had built.

Now, like I mentioned earlier, the power of unity works both ways. It can accomplish good or evil. Let us focus on the good that it can produce. It says in Matthew 18:18-20, “Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”

There is another historical, yet supernatural event recorded in Joshua 6, where God gives a seemingly ridiculous plan to overtake the City of Jericho. The plan involved the power of unity, faith in action and the spoken word. Joshua and the Israelites did as the Lord commanded them and they supernaturally overpowered Jericho.

I want us to take these historical events and learn from them and put the lessons that they teach us into practice today. More specifically, I desire that we learn how to operate in the power of unity and together fight off our enemy, satan, and build a strong tower of faith in the redemptive work of Christ around our family and friends who are battling against premature death, sickness and disease. This is possible. Let me share a real-life testimony.

I recently ministered in Virginia. I ministered at 8 meetings in 4 days, I taught the people how to DARE to Believe in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, and how to obtain their healings. They have received the message in DARE to Believe with amazing results.

One precious woman of God, who is in her early 80’s has been attacked by the enemy with cancer. She desires to live, be healed and fulfill her destiny. Together, we have come up with a plan of action to activate the power of unity on her behalf. We have asked people to join us in unison to fight for her life. And they are.

In unison, we are interceding on her behalf. We are taking our authority over premature death and cancer, speaking life, healing and recreation into her mortal body. We are praying in the Spirit daily. We have come up with a list of healing Scriptures and personalized them for her and the people are calling forth her healing by the power of the spoken Word of God.

One man went to their house today and read chapter 11, Marcos, from DARE to Believe to stir their faith and to encourage them that all things are possible.

Others are rallying up even more support via social means, others are making phone calls and sending out letters to those that are not connected to the internet, with the same message of faith that you will find in DARE to Believe.

Faith is rising, people are being unified, faith-filled prayers are being lifted up to the throne of grace,  and we expect nothing less than a miraculous report of divine healing. Matthew 18:19 confirms this unified plan, “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.” DARE to Believe.

Stand in the Gap

People are reading and hearing that all things are possible in DARE to Believe. And to the glory of our Lord they are putting their faith in action and are experiencing the powerful results of faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.  Here is another great testimony to stir your faith.

Julie writes, “Becky, we met on April 19th in Virginia. I wanted to let you know that I have been “standing in the gap” for several relatives that don’t dare to believe. My brother-in-law has been suffering with kidney stones and the folks at the hospital sent him home with pain killers and told him to call when they had passed. He was told that they were small stones.  After speaking with him on the phone and knowing how much pain he was in, I kneeled on the floor, prayed as you have instructed, prayed in tongues, and asked for immediate relief.  We were traveling out-of-town so it took me about an hour and a half to get to him and when I picked him up he was still in pain. We stopped for lunch about a half hour later where he passed a very large kidney stone!!!!  Praise Jesus, he is all but dancing in the street even thanking Jesus when I told him I had been praying for him.  God is great!”

DARE to Believe that all things are possible in Jesus Christ, and stand in the gap for your family and friends!

Healing Confessions

The Good News teaches us that there is the power of life and death in our tongues. Essentially what this means is that the condition of our health is found in the words that we speak. In-other-words, we have control over our health and lives. Let us learn how to speak words of faith that will produce healing in our mortal bodies.

Here is a list of healing confessions to speak out loud over yourself or for someone else that you are supporting. Where it says “Name”, insert the person’s name. And I encourage you to read this list out loud several times a day, just as if you were taking medicine.

Daily Choices

Everyday is filled with choices. We choose to live or die, give up or move forward, laugh or cry, hate or love, forgive or be vengeful… Everything we do, whether big or small, involves a decision.

What is happening in your life today? What crossroad are you standing at? What mountain appears to big to cross?

The Bible gives us the best advise in decision-making. It says choose Jesus, choose to believe, choose to serve the Lord, choose life, choose joy, choose the good fight of faith, choose to love, choose to give, choose to forgive, and choose the straight and narrow path… With sound Biblical advice like this, the daily choices in life become clear, and less overwhelming.

How to Present the Good News

Have you ever heard the way in which you present Jesus to others? We are to share the Good News with nonbelievers. The Good News is not, “Hey, you lousy sinner, you are going to burn in hell!”  That is not good news. And that’s not smart witnessing either.

The Good News is filled with hope for something better. The smart way to share Jesus is to say something like, “I know things have not turned out as you wished, you’ve made some bad decisions, you have found yourself in a tough spot… but I care, and more importantly God cares. In fact, He cares so much about you that He sent His son Jesus into this world to suffer and die for you, so that you could be forgiven of your sins, and delivered from this situation…”

The second presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ opens up the door to the receiver. It shows compassion and understanding which will soften hardened hearts to listen and possibly receive what you have to share.

Then after the door is open continue on and tell them how to receive Jesus. Tell them the Bible says “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (See Romans 10:9.) Now, when I share Jesus with people, I keep it simple, I do not bombard them with Scripture references. I share maybe a 1 or 2 Scriptures at the most. Also, you can relax when you share about Jesus to others, you do not have to quote the Scriptures word for word in this situation. Give them the basic facts in a way that they can receive from you.

1.The Bible says…

2. If you believe in your heart…

3.  Jesus died on the Cross for your sins and was raised from the dead and is alive today.

4. If you believe this and will speak it from your mouth that you believe…

5. Then you will be saved.

Then ask them, “Do you believe this?” If they say yes, then offer to pray with them. Ask them to repeat a simple prayer, like the following example.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before You in the name of Jesus Christ. I have examined my heart, and I do acknowledge and admit that I have sinned against You and Your Word. Your Words says, in Romans 10:9-10, “If you confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart, that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Father God, I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross to save me from my sins, went to hell in my place, rose again three days later, and is alive and seated at Your right side in heaven.

Jesus, forgive me of all my sins. Thank You, for saving me from sin, hell, and myself. I ask You to come into my life to be my Lord and Savior. Thank You for loving me and accepting me just as I am.

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Afterwards, look them in the eye and smile, welcome them to the family of God. Invite them to come to Church or Bible study group with you.  

This is presenting the Good News to the lost and needy in a smart, kind and caring manner.

Word From the Lord

This is a word of encouragement from the Lord to His bride. (April 5, 2013)

In the midst of all the difficulties that you face I will help you move forward with the power of My grace.

I will carry you so that you can pick up the pace and finish your race. All disgrace I will erase.

Now enter into my embrace, and fix your gaze upon My face.

Your garment is made of fine, white lace.

Is There Healing In Feathers?

Question: “Becky, do you believe in the healing power of feathers?”

Answer: No, I do not. Feathers do not heal. That is witchcraft. Divine healing ONLY comes from the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. The Bible says in the Book of Isaiah 53: 4-5 “Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.”

Now, concerning witchcraft the Bible warns us in   1Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,” 

It also explains this further in the Book of Deuteronomy 18:9-12, “When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations, “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, “or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “ For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you.”

Divine healing ONLY comes from the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ, not from feathers or any other form of witchcraft.

Forgiveness, Think About It

Think about it… many years ago, the body of Christ had been falsely accused, mocked and spit upon, abused, abandoned, crucified and buried in a tomb. The situation “appeared” to be without hope.

The Servant’s service was devalued, they twisted His message, the intentions of His heart were unjustly judged, they destroyed His reputation, and He was made out to be the evil one.

What did Jesus do? He stretched out His arms and cried out to the Father and said, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”

The spiritual body of Christ is under attack today. What do we do? Get down on our knees and cry out to the Father, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” His forgiveness saves many, your forgiveness opens the door for others to receive this hope.

The power behind this Easter weekend is forgiveness, which is an outpouring of the love that Jesus Christ shed for us at Calvary. I say take some time, and think about it…

Your Prayer Makes A Difference

Have you ever passed over a prayer request because you felt that perhaps your prayers won’t help? I want to stir your faith to believe that yes, your prayers do make a difference.

James 5:16 claims, “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” When true believers in Jesus Christ pray words of faith they cause situations to change. 1John 5:14-15 states, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of Him.” Our faith-filled prayers accomplish great things for the glory of our Lord.

I shared two urgent prayer requests on social media. One was for a little girl who was rushed to the hospital with high fevers and severe seizures. The other request was from a woman who needed prayer for healing of a relationship between her and her adult daughter that needs salvation and healing, but was not able to even start to minister to her daughter because of a broken relationship. I shared the needs of these people with you, with examples of faith-filled prayers to pray. Together we prayed in faith and both came back with good reports.

The little girl was released and sent back home within an hour. The family says this is nothing short of a miraculous touch from the Lord, and credits this to everyone’s prayers. With the other situation, the mother wrote back and said that her daughter’s spirit has opened up to her once again and she can now start to reach out to her daughter’s needs, and thanks everyone for their prayers.

I want to encourage you, regardless of the situation, reach out to those who believe and ask them to pray. And for those of you that are called upon to pray, don’t lose heart, your faith-filled prayers do make a difference. They accomplish great things for the glory of our God.
