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,

Do Not Lose Your Hope! October 20, 2012

A great challenge with a heavy load is when sickness and disease present themselves.  But…God can carry the heavy load; all you have to do is ask Him.

I have told this to people and seen them turn around and take the load back.  That does not make any sense…but it’s an individual decision. 

I don’t like loads.  So I give them to God.  I’m helpless on the surface sometimes; but God gives me supernaturasl strength to get things done!  God is just waiting to take them from you.

THE SMITH WIGGLESWORTH DEVOTIONAL USES THIS SCRIPTURE UNDER THE HEADING:  “A FRESH VISION FOR EACH NEW DAY.”   I encourage you to obtain this book if you do not already have it.  n an overflow room people got saved right when they stood up and they got healed in their bodies wherever they needed it.  If you have not completely given yourself to God 100%; then do it today and give your body as a willing vessel to God.  Watcg what He can do; move closer!

Final Thought:  ” “No man can have the Trinity Abiding In him and be the same as he was before.”   Smith Wigglesworth

Keith Green; An Inspiration! by Elaine Davenport Ju;y 15, 2012

Keith Green and his lovely wife Lerissa!

This one article is capable of reaching millions of people.  But, I believe God wants people to be inspired.  Today, He used Keith Green to do that!!

I have a cousin who lives in Georgia.    He has no idea that I am writing this.  B He’s a believer of The Lord Jesus Christ and not ashamed to say it.  He is happily married.  He and his wife have a close bond.   He also is a young man filled with wisdom.  In a recent Facebook post he said:

 

“Ok Folk! I’m going to need you all to take better care of yourselves! Let’s listen to our Doctors, let the hate of a bad relationship go, take care of that heart of yours, don’t stress the financial  and ease the abuse of the drugs and alcohol. Please!!! I am losing friends and family at an alarming rate! You are not in this alone! We need you! I need you more than you know! So take a deep breath, know that you are loved and let’s grow together! I’m not preaching this is an sincere request because I care very much for you and your family!”

Now, let me say that this is an approach of compassion.  So I pray that you will be inspired just like I was…and spread Keith’s message of Wisdom.  I am sure that he was inspired by God and that He is following God’s word which clearly says:   “Love one another.”    THANK YOU KEITH FOR THE INSPIRATION!!!

You see…I can get preachy, but it isn’t always necessary.  One of the things that leads people into the trap of sickness and disease has to do with poor lifestyle choices.  Or sometimes…we just don’t do anything.  Here is a list of some things that one “could do:

Drink 8 glasses of water per day

Get daily exercise…Walk, swim, get a personal trainer, go to the gym, …do something…get a partner.

Read your Bible (That should be first)

Do not over eat

Eat wisely

Get plenty of rest/sleep/

Me…well, I pray and that way I know what to do…

 

IF YOU HAVE A COMMENT ABOUT HOW KEITH GREEN HAS INSPIRED YOU…WE’LL POST IT!

3John 2

Beloved, I pray that in all things thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.gotta do it.  So there it is…


The Love of God is Important To Your Health! June 21, 2012

I’ve met people…and please no offense if this is you.  I have met people who like being sick.  I am not trying to be mean because I know that nobody will ever admit that they like  being sick.   However, if we take a hard look at some people’s actions…that would be a clear conclusion.

I am not talking about people who are not believers.  That is not my platform today.

Okay, so let’s talk about it.  The bible tells us that Jesus is alive today, yesterday and forever.  It tells us that Jesus heals.  It tells us that the Word of God is alive and all powerful.  It tells us that nothing is impossible with God.  It literally explains that the Word can act like a medicine; capable of healing us.  Yet, I don’t see many sick people reading it.  Now, I’ve been sick before and there were days that I sure didn’t feel like anything at all.   nHowever, that was when I did not have this information.
A while back after being diagnosed with a very serious type of cancer; I decided to find out if all of this was true.  So, I stepped over into the faith boat…ready to step out and walk on water so to speak.  You see, I had been told that I did not have time to get a second opinion from a doctor.  So every time that I got another opinion it had to be faith that gave me the courage to proceed because I had been told that “TIME HAD RUN OUT!”

You see, health is important to me.  So, I whipped out my bible, prepared as many scriptures on healing that I could find and began to recite them over and over 3 to 5 times a day.

I ultimately saw three more doctors for their opinions until I decided on utilizing the services of a new doctor in another city at a University hospital.    I did not take a sorrowful attitude with me.  I took my bible and made certain that every nurse and every doctor saw it.  I spoke in faith.  I ministered to them.  I needed a miracle…I got it!

The day after surgery, I was up bright and early PRAISING the Lord with some of the nurses!

When health is important to you…believer…you will stand in faith.  Get in the Word, pray, meditate, confess and be expectant of God to show up.  He is God.  He loves you!



I’ve Got A Really Good Question For You! by Gene McGuire December 8, 2011

“For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” (2 Cor. 2:15)
DO YOU STAY IN THE BIBLE REGULARLY ENOUGH SO THAT YOU CAN BE THE OVERCOMER THAT GOD INTENDED FOR YOU TO BE ?
___________________________________________________________________________
COMMENT: Some time ago I opened up my Bible and a very pleasant aroma greeted my nostrils. I was really startled for a moment. Had the Lord worked something supernatural with my Bible? Then the truth dawned on me and I had a big laugh at myself. The day before I was reading the Scriptures at the Laundromat; having misplaced my book mark, I used one of my scented fabric softeners. However, that incident reminded me of our Lead Scripture. The illustration is not too far off base because 2 Corinthians 3:3 informs us that “clearly you are an epistle of Christ [a letter from Christ], ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.” Our godly behavior should be the sweet fragrance that will attract others to the Kingdom of God.
SCRIPTURE STUDY: Matthew 5:13-16
WISE SAYING: BE CAREFUL, YOU MAY BE THE ONLY BIBLE THAT SOME PEOPLE WILL EVER READ.
Sincerely Yours, Gene McGuire
