The Anointing: My deliverer.

My deliverer.

Do you know that the Lord has a sense of humor? I sure do!!!

He has a way of showing me things that I have to smile. I attended my late night prayer meeting on Friday expecting to hear from God. I don't know what I wanted or what I wanted to hear from God....... just something. Can I get a witness!!!!
You know them ones where there is a vacant space, between what God has promised you and when it manifests in the physical. Sometimes we think we need SOMETHING from God, or we need God to do SOMETHING, but the reality and the truth of it is that WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING!!!!!

It could be something so simple and often overlooked that we need to adjust in our lives. On the Thursday I prayed, God help me, God lead me, God guide me, God show me and he sure did.
So the word was YOU DON'T HAVE ANY PATIENCE!!!!! WOW, what a wake up call. I was humbled immediately. There was more to the word but this part specifically stood out to me as obviously it is sooo true. Before I went up for prayer, I looked at my pastor, Dr Ionie Shas, and said to another sister in christ, ' Pastor is sooo patient, I don't have that kind of patience'. So when the Lord spoke those word through my Pastor, I was literally cracking up with laughter inside.

My journey with Christ has been amazing and I am still in awe and will always be in awe of his greatness, his mercies,his love and how he knows me better than I myself. After I received the word from the Lord about receiving songs from heaven, the lord gave me a song called MY DELIVERER. This song is basically about that vacant space between Gods promises and it manifesting in the physical. The first line is, ' Patiently waiting on you'. Now if you don't find this funny then bwoy my sense of humor is just way out there!!!! Because obviously I have not been PATIENTLY waiting on him, as the Lord told me on Friday. Another part of the word on Friday was that my career is already there in the spiritual! Isn't God amazing? Vacant space.......patience! Wow, I went home and as I meditated on this word, I realised that I Literally do not have any patience with ANYTHING. The  third line of the song is, ' holding onto your word, because I believe what you say is true' We have to hold on to the word of God and believe his promises for our lives, at all times. And yes the enemy can put negative thoughts in our head, but who are we kidding? Hasn't God come through for us time after time after time? Gods timing is perfect, all we need to do..... all I need to do is have a little patience. I thought I was being patient when I wrote this song, crying out for the Lord to deliver me. In the second verse I even wrote,  'in times of great trials and tribulations, help me perfect my patience!!'  Ermmm, I should have seen it coming really, bearing in mind I have sang this song quite a few times! Duh Vocalz..... I asked God to perfect my patience and that is exactly what he is doing!!!

Go on.... laugh... I know you want to, you know you want to! Its OK because its the truth that we know that will set us free! And I definitely feel free after THAT.

So as I looked deeper into this PATIENCE, I came across Colossians 3:12-13

' Since God chose you to be holy people he loves you,you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and PATIENCE. Make allowance for each others faults, and forgive anyone who offends. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others'.

The word of God must be a mirror for us to look into and put ourselves right. From this scripture, I see many things that I still struggle with, but God does love us and we are his chosen holy people. It also shows that these are characteristics that we must PUT ON, hence the word CLOTHE. As we PUT ON CHRIST daily we must also put on tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
For me, it is not always easy. Patience is the biggest one for me, like I said earlier, I am not patient for anything, But now God has brought it to my attention, with his grace I ask for more patience everyday! 

In relation to the song, My Deliverer, scripture says that it is through our waiting and patience that the Lord will deliver us.

1 Thessalonians 1:10.
  'And to wait for his son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come'

 Isn't God amazing? He shows us and gives us the answer to all things in his word.

Romans 5:3-4.
'And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;and patience, experience; and experience, hope.'

Everything I have gone through, everything, you have gone through, is to test your patience, to give you experience of Gods goodness, his truth, his love and his deliverance! All for the glory of God so you can spread the good news with someone else. So you can evangelise, so you can help somebody in need, so God can promote you, use you, build your character and trust YOU.
I mean, how much do we expect God to be patient with us? ' I know you told me to minister to this person but ill do it next week God,' or ' I know you have called me to minister but I still want to party.'
Sometimes we are filled with so many excuses but still God is patient with us. I know i am guilty of this all the time, so who am I to try and rush God?
Many times the Lord will use my own children to teach me about the relationship we have with each other. He is my heavenly Father, and I am his child. I am always telling my children to wait, and that they need to be patient, that I am getting things ready for them. How similar is that huh? But on the other hand I expect them to do what I say as soon as I say it, because I am their mother. No patience!!!!  If only I was that obedient to the Father, I would be able to move mountains, but God makes allowance for my faults.

So dear brothers and sisters, the Lord will deliver you and set you free, for he is a mighty strong tower!!! All you have to do is.................................... have a  little patience.

God bless.

Wednesday, 14 August 2013  Ok, soooo, here I am, in front of the computer! About two weeks ago the Lord told me to start writing blogs.  I thought to my self that's a really good idea but, I write songs NOT BLOGS.

The lord proceeded to tell me that I should write blogs about the songs that he gives me, how hes word and healing flows from them. Well.... here goes...

The Anointing, track 3 on my EP Gods Music. So seven years ago in 2006 I received a word from the Lord calling me to the music industry. I have always written songs and sang, but to hear this calling from the mouth of God was truly amazing to me. I thought to my self I knew it! I knew there was something different about me! Now not to sound big headed or anything, I grew up with a lot of issues like most people but I was always searching for something else, feeling like this cant be it for my life, living the same old lifestyle, doing the same old things but still......feeling.....empty.

So, four years on from receiving that word from God, I was laying on my bed just thinking about Jesus and what he had called me to do. I always remember the wise words from my Pastor, Dr Ionie Shas, saying that she would choose the Anointing every time. The more I thought about this, words started to come into my spirit, lyrics. Thought about all the things that the Lord freely gives us, his love that is everlasting, his wisdom that is infinite. His mercies that are new every morning, and his peace that passes all understanding. Wow!!!! As a child of God we have assess to all this and more!
But, when you are called by God for a specific reason, it is the Anointing of God that will do the work!!

Luke 4:8 The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.

Now I am not a pastor, or a preacher but the Lord has commanded every believer to spread the gospel through different ways or gifts! Mine is through singing! I didn't know this at the time the song Anointing was written. I just thought God had called me to sing in my worship team at church and write songs. It wasn't until 2013 that the Lord confirmed his calling over my life! He had anointed me to write and sing songs that will come direct from heaven, and these songs will have healing in them!! What an amazing calling, and true to his word, the songs came. Lyrics that were truly piercing to the heart and soul and mind! I had no idea what God was preparing me for! Having experienced low self esteem, suicidal attempts, emotional and physical abuse in my life, God then revealed that my ministry was for broken women. It all made sense now, everything I had been through in my life, was so that I can help another woman in similar situations.

These songs come out of my life, my experiences but the Holy spirit gives me the words. And most importantly they minister to me FIRST!

The lyrics in song The Anointing are so powerful that I really didnt understand what i was writing when I wrote it!

 ' I am nothing, nothing without the anointing, can't do nothing nothing without you oh God, these words mean nothing, nothing without the anointing, please give me more anointing today, I would choose the anointing, every day'.

God bless.
