Give me oil in my lamp
Keep me burning, burning, burning
Give me oil in my lamp I pray
Give me oil in my lamp
Keep me burning, burning, burning
Keep me burning till the break of day
Sing hosanna, Sing Hosanna, Sing Hosanna to the King of Kings
Sing hosanna, Sing Hosanna, Sing Hosanna to the King of Kings...
So I woke up with this song in my heart this morning. The entire day it has been on my heart. Jesus, just fill me with your fresh anointing oil so that my lamp can keep on burning, burning, burning.
After my original post yesterday I felt like I wanted to keep writing, but I told myself that I have to keep myself in and take one day at a time, not to flood the pages with everything I have to say. I am not yet sure if I'll be able to do this. I am happy and I want to share this with the world!
No matter my current circumstances (and I can guarantee you that they're not good at the moment), can make me depressed or low or bring me down in any way. It doesn't matter what the devil tries and throw at me, I just cannot and will not submit to that. I have some of the fresh oil that God gave me. The fresh oil that He poured into my soul and that is why my song this morning was Sing Hosanna.
Today is the last day of the month of August 2021. Tomorrow is 1 Sept 2021, the first day of spring. As nice as that sounds, I have absolutely NO idea how things will get paid. Praise the Lord, for He is Mighty to be praised! I do this. I praise God for absolutely everything. Even when things go bad in my life, I praise Him. If someone hurts me, If someone swears at me, if someone is rude, or if anything bad happens, I praise God.
So last night while sitting on the couch, I saw a message on facebook through which God spoke to me and reassured me that everything will be ok and that I do not have to worry. The message clearly resonated with me because I was wondering what was going to happen next and how my provision was going to come. Like I said, my life right now, no job, no income, no source of any money coming in from anywhere, and He spoke to me and gave me a Prophetic word for my provision which said;
Geewizz! A million and one thoughts are rushing through my head about this now! Do you really want to tell people about your situation? Do you really want people to know that you don't work or have an income? Do you really want them to see you as a failure? Do you really want them to know your business? Do you want them to know that you lost absolutely everything? Do you want them to know how many mistakes you have made? Do you want them to know??? You will be embarrassed! You will be belittled!
Lies! Lies! Lies! The devil is a liar! I will not feel ashamed! I will not let the devils lies affect me in any way! I KNOW WHO I AM IN CHRIST. I KNOW WHERE I AM AT. I KNOW WHERE I AM GOING. I KNOW THAT I AM LOVED. I KNOW THAT I AM TAKEN CARE OF! I KNOW THAT GOD IS MY SOURCE! MY ONLY SOURCE! NO JOB, NO INVESTMENT OR ANYTHING IS MY SOURCE. JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE!
Ok, so let's get back to the word of God and His promises. They are real and true.
So the the Prophetic word was as follows: (I will copy it exactly as it was said, I don't want to change a thing).
Prophetic Words for your Provision (Dated 30 August 2021)
““Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and stay there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you.” So he arose and went to Zarephath; and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her, and said, “Please get me a little water in a jar, that I may drink.” As she was going to get it, he called to her, and said, “Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.” She said, “As Yahweh your God lives, I don’t have a cake, but a handful of meal in a jar, and a little oil in a jar. Behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and bake it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.” Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go and do as you have said; but make me a little cake from it first, and bring it out to me, and afterward make some for you and for your son. For Yahweh, the God of Israel says, ‘The jar of meal will not run out, and the jar of oil will not fail, until the day that Yahweh sends rain on the earth.’” She went and did according to the saying of Elijah; and she, and he, and her house, ate many days. The jar of meal didn’t run out, and the jar of oil did not fail, according to Yahweh’s word, which he spoke by Elijah.” (1 Kings 17:9-16 WEB)
When God shows you a vision and gives you a prophetic word, obey it because He is preparing good things for you.
You may not have much, but God can multiply the little in your hands into much.
Similar to Jesus’ miracle of multiplying the bread and fishes, Elijah’s miracle caused a widow’s family to be supplied throughout the drought-induced famine.
God multiplied a little boy’s bread and fishes through Jesus, while God multiplied the widow’s meal and oil through Elijah.
The scale of Jesus’ miracle is much larger because it fed more than five thousand people.
Are you experiencing some sort of drought in areas of your life? Are your health or finances drying up?
“They rose early in the morning, and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. As they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in Yahweh your God, so you will be established! Believe his prophets, so you will prosper.”” (2 Chronicles 20:20 WEB)
When you are left with little, clinging to that little is not wise. Put what you have in God’s hands and allow Him to multiply it. He will show you what to do.
Believe in your loving Abba God. Prophetic words carry the authority and power of God to work miracles, so read this message a few times and let this truth really sink in: God will make a way for you.
Right now may be a drought season for many in the world, but rain is coming. In the meantime, trust God that you will be well-supplied amidst the drought. You shall not die, but live to declare the goodness of God!
Isn't this a wonderful word? Wow! Wow! Wow! That is what is so awesome about God, His Word and His promises. He is not a God that He should lie. The Word of God needs to be our foundation because it is the truth, and the truth will set us free!
Now, when we want confirmation about a Prophetic we would normally get confirmation in sets of 3. So the above word was message 1.
This was message 2;
Isaiah 66:12-14 NIV
For this is what the LORD says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass; the hand of the LORD will be made known to his servants, but his fury will be shown to his foes.
Then this today was message 3;
This morning I heard Him say, “If I take care of the Sparrow, how much more will I take care of You?"
- Don't worry today! Nobody will pluck you out of His hand!
This is what the Bible says about this message:
Luke 12:22 (NIV) Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.
Luke 12:29 (NIV) And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it.
Matthew 6:25 (NIV) “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Aha! Look! Just the above message has 3 different scriptures about it! That's double confirmation! Amen! Glory Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus!
So to get back to the question, do I want people to know my business? YES I DO! Why? Because this blog is about my life story. The story about my homosexual lifestyle, what happened throughout, my salvation, my passion for Jesus, where I am now and where God is taking me! So yes devil! EAT THIS! VICTORY is MINE! Through the grace of God! Victory is mine! All the Glory and Honor goes to Jesus Christ my Savior and King!
Also, I am not the only one in this position. There are so many other believers who are going through the same thing. God has taught me in this short space of time that I have to completely rest in His promises. He taught me that He is my Source and my ONLY source. He is my Rock and my Salvation. He is my Jehovah-Jira my Provider! He is teaching me that I have to stand strong and look to Him through it all. He is teaching me that I have to keep pushing through and keep my eyes fixed on Him! I have to keep praying, keep studying the Word, keep having faith and trust in His process. I have learnt so much and this is not even the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to Jesus than what I can possibly fathom.
I have a thirst for more of Jesus! I have a longing for more of Him. I want to know more! I want to learn more! I desire more! I am absolutely besotted about Him. I am so in Love with Jesus! The LOVE of my Life and the Savior of my Soul!
