The Only “Attitude” I Need! by E. Davenport February, 2014

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Romans 8: 32faithtalklpI have a chip on my shoulder!   I dare the devil to even think about knocking it of!   He better not even try!   He better stay in his territory!   I’m covered by the Blood of Jesus!   What about you?

The only attitude I ever want to be known for is the attitude of faith…most especially for my healing…we serve a God who heals.  Nothing else!   Point Blank!    #ibelievethebible

2014: Wipe The Slate Clean! By Elaine Davenport January, 2014

AAACLEANSLATE

Happy New Year’s From Cafe Sozo!    Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to tell you something worthwhile as a result of your doing so.  

Insurance companies often call catastrophes acts of God!   That’s a lie!  So unfortunately some people think that when bad things happen to them; it’s God‘s fault.  Not true.

Most of us are totally unaware that we have sickness in our bodies, in our minds, in our families , in our bank accounts…and the list goes on…even spiritually.  That fact the a person has gone to church for ten, twenty, thirty years or so is no guarantee of (spiritual) sharpness; yet if you walk into any church…you can easily find people who act or believe it’s about loyalty… to the church or pastor or belonging to a clique.  God doesn’t quite see it that way…so there is healing (and correction needed)

Physically many carry sickness in their bodies for years without detection until they get the news.  While others ignore warning symptoms operating in delusion or denial.

Financially, many people live over their means, buying things they cannot afford until the monthly payout far exceeds what comes in.

We live in a society where people want quick answers, take shortcuts and often find themselves in a position where pressure is being applied upon them as individuals even if it’s not their fault.

With all of these scenarios…God has answers.  He can heal you, me, the situations and give us a way out.   Just say a prayer and ask for help.  That’s the first step.

Exodus 23:25 Amplified Bible (AMP)
You shall serve the Lord your God; He shall bless your bread and water, and I will take sickness from your midst.

Deuteronomy 7:15 Amplified Bible (AMP)
And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt which you knew will He put upon you, but will lay them upon all who hate you.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 Amplified Bible (AMP)
IF YOU will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.  And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live and may love the Lord your God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days, that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Joshua 21:45 God’s Word Translation
Every single good promise that the LORD had given the nation of Israel came true.

1 Kings 8:56 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Blessed be the Lord, Who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. Not one word has failed of all His good promise which He promised through Moses His servant.

Psalm 89:34 God’s Word Translation
My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

Psalm 91:16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.

Psalm 103:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,

Lord Heal My Heart! By Elaine Davenport November, 2013

AAHEARTBROKEN

Most of the time that we speak of healing, we are talking about sickness and  disease in relation to things sometimes and sometimes not treatable by a medical doctor.  But one of the subjects that we do not often enough speak of is:  a broken heart.   Yet. we all have faced it at one time or another.

Broken relationships,  Family inflicted pain, unexpected loss, severed friendships, unexpected aggression,  business dead ends,  financial woes,  bad decisions, being naive, fractured trust, misunderstandings….

We have to be so careful…but we have the freedom…and the right to say:

Lord…I give it all to You…it’s a faith thing!

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.

John 14:13 ESV

Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 

Mark 11:23 ESV

Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.

God Help me! I Can’t do this by myself! by E. Davenport October, 2013

I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? (Psalm 121:1)

My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:2)

Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless. (Psalm 10:12)

The Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials.
(2 Peter 2:9)

Come quickly to help me, 0 Lord my Savior. (Psalm 38:22)

You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways. (Isaiah 64:5)

Help me, O LORD my God; save me in accordance with your love. (Psalm 109:26)

I, even I, am he who comforts you. (Isaiah 51:12)

Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me. (Psalm 71:2)

For I am the LORD, your God, who See also: takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O LORD, supported me. (Psalm 94:18)

There is only one place that I know where to get help…that is in the presence of God.  Whether it be by reading my bible healing-and-restorationout loud, praying quietly or loudly, or by just isolating myself and talking it out with God; He has never failed to help  in my time of need.  Somebody needed to hear that.

Be pleased, O LORD, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me. (Psalm 40:13)

Hearing From God! by Elaine Davenport September 30, 2013

I wrote this article for one reason only. To ask you a question.  Can you Hear From God?

There are three answers:  yes,no  and sometimes.  The last answer is the most challenging.    Yes, all the time must be our answer and this is true even if we have to work harder.

The natural man wants to work alone without direction.  So, if you make up your mind to hear what God has to say you can expect distractions.

If you can’t hear anything at all…I challenge you to find out why.

In these tough times, hearing from God is more critical than ever!healing-and-restoration

The Night I Could Have Died! by Elaine Davenport August 31, 2013

AOVEREATER

1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

 

1 Corinthians 6:19 ESV

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,

I went out of town quite recently after much prayer.  If anything saved me from the things that lied ahead of me…it was the hours of prayer…and God’s grace and mercy.

 

A lot of things happen to us as a result of our disobedience.  Though it is not popular to admit it…a lot of times we miss the mark.

 

Before I went out of town, a strong feeling came over me not to eat any hamburgers on my trip.

That sounds strange doesn’t eat.  I do not eat hamburgers normally but for some reason I found myself thinking about how great they must be at my destination.  So, I had one and then two.  After the second one…I got deathly ill in the middle of the night…something like a heart attack.  Pain that could not be ignored. I sat up in the bed and prayed for well over an hour.  I apologized to God..  I had missed it.  Many times we will get a warning and we will override it…my prayer is that none of us ever do that again…in Jesus Name.

 

JAMES 1: 12

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
