When you are in Christ, it should be second nature to worship Him. We don’t have to let the weight of the world pull us away from His presence! A good thing is that the Lord is not evasive! When we praise Him, he comes near to us. We don’t have to jump through hoops to enjoy His presence. He is a good Father and He wants us to enjoy Him. Here are some ways to set an atmosphere of worship in your home, whether you are alone or the whole family is around.

Praise Music/Instrumentals

Sometimes, a good Christian / Gospel song is all you need to invite the presence of the Lord. It can get you in the mood to worship Him and can set the tone for a day well spent. Find out what kind of praise music you like best. Gospel, contemporary Christian music, choir music, soft worship music, or instrumentals. I like them all, for different occasions. Some of my favorite artists are Jonathan McReynolds, Marvin Sapp, Tasha Cobbs, Kierra Sheard, Toby Mac, Casting Crowns, Grace Williams, and Julie True.  Lately, I have been putting on instrumental music that I’ve found on YouTube when I pray or read my Bible. For instrumentals, I always go to the Channels Kyle Lovett, and Dappy T Keys.

Read The Bible Aloud

The Word of God is always going to be a way to invite the Lord into your home and set an atmosphere of worship. Either you can sit alone and read aloud or invite your family to listen to you. Or take turns reading! Have a Bible study! Or you can turn on a recording of the Bible being read. There are tons of those on YouTube. Also, a really great recording of the whole Bible that my husband and I have been enjoying for years is The Bible Experience. It’s an audio collection of the bible read with background effects that made each scene come alive. You can find it here on Amazon:

Clean House

You may be thinking to yourself, “What?! Clean house?!” Well for me, whenever I clean my house, I always put a song or a sermon on and pray as I clean. I think to myself, “What if Jesus knocked on my door? Would I be embarrassed to let Him in?” I don’t want that answer to be yes, so when I clean my house, I feel like I’m inviting the Lord in. It is sort of an act of inviting Him in, for me. As I sweep, mop, pick up and declutter, fold laundry and wipe off surfaces, I always feel the Lord is proud of me for taking care of my home and making room for Him. Lighting candles or burning wax melts always adds an extra touch.

Be still and Quiet

For so many of us, especially us moms, this is hard to achieve. I have to fight for quietness and stillness in my home! But I value it, so I do fight for it! Having prayer time or Bible reading time usually has to be first thing in the morning or late at night. Sometimes, if the kids are quietly playing or engrossed in a good TV show, I can put my headphones on and read my Bible. This has been my trick lately. I have yet to get some noise-canceling headphones, but they are on my Amazon wish list! Here’s a pair I have my eyes on:

Join A Prayer Line

There are a lot of these going on. A prayer line is basically a group of believers joining together virtually by phone or online to pray and worship together. Check with your church and see if there’s one going on. Mine has one weekly. Or go on YouTube and search’ live Christian prayer’. A couple of channels I know of that have live prayer sessions are Bro Mike Man Of God and International House of Prayer. There are also some really good prayer, worship and Bible study groups on FB. Just search for them and you’ll find them!

This is my best advice for creating an atmosphere of worship in your home. You may feel stressed, but you CAN have peace in Christ! You CAN have joy in Christ! The Lord does not want us to feel hurried and anxious. Come to Him with all of your worries, because He cares for you. When you worship Him, you are taking your eyes off of the problem at hand and giving it to the Lord, who wants to take care of it for you. God bless you! Let me know how you are incorporating this advice into your daily routine!

One Truth The Enemy Doesn’t Want You To Know

So many people have identity crises. It’s really sad to look at the world and see the confusion that goes on in the hearts of humankind. If you were raised with parents who are believers and they taught you the truth of the Word of God and your identity in Christ, you have an advantage. But the enemy is crafty. He will get a lie into your mind in any way he can.

The news, social media, TV, the radio, school, ungodly friends. All of these are gateways for the lies of the enemy to enter your life. Even if you were raised in the church and your parents kept you from the world as much as they possibly could, the enemy will lie to you and make it seem like you missed out on a lot of fun. In truth, the Lord’s way is the best way to live because holiness is the way our creator intended for us to live.

The truth I want to talk about that the enemy doesn’t want you to know? You are made in the image of God. He is our creator and He made us to be like Him in order to bring Him glory! So many don’t believe that basic fact and they are suffering greatly. Some are aware, some are unaware that there is a greater truth that they have not grasped.

God loves each and every one of us more than we realize and if we know Him, there will forever be more of His love to discover. If you don’t know Him, you are missing out on a great truth. God is love and you are fearfully and wonderfully created in His image! This is such a great implication that if we can just grasp this truth, a lot of our problems will be quelled because the enemy won’t be able to penetrate our minds with the lies he has crafted to deceive us.

There are a few ways the enemy wants to distort the fact that God made us in His image.

Plastic Surgery and Body Modification

When we don’t know the love of God and the fact that we were made in His image, it is easy for anyone of us to lose confidence in ourselves stemming from insecurity. This can result in wanting to look different. Now, some people take a drastic approach to changing the way they look. All sorts of plastic surgeries are possible and people take advantage of those possibilities. Nose jobs, liposuction, breast implants, and butt implants. I’ve seen documentaries of a few different people who got thousands of dollars in plastic surgery to look just like someone else they admired. That is just so sad because if you only knew Him! If you only knew Jesus and His purpose for your life, you’d have such joy!

Then some people get hooked on tattoos and piercings that change their entire look. I believe these actions are demonic because the Lord did not make you to look like someone or something else! I’ve seen people go so far as to have their whole bodies tattooed, piercings all over their face or skull. I’ve even seen a man get his tongue split and his eyes tattooed black so he could be a so called human snake. I shake my head at this because these extremes are such a huge perversion and they sadden the heart of my Savior.

Sexual Perversion

I could write a whole other post just on this topic and maybe I will in the future. The LGBTQ community has really grown in the last decade and in the past couple of years especially, the agenda the enemy has placed in their hands is rampant.  There are men dressing as women and women dressing as men, and trying to teach our children that this is okay. Then we’ve got some so convinced that they were born to be the opposite sex that they go through a sex change and hormone therapy. It doesn’t matter if one gets the sex change and takes hormones, still, they are the gender the Lord created them to be. It’s so sad because I have even seen a couple of people who had sex reassignment surgery then came to the knowledge of Christ and wished with all their hearts that they never would’ve gotten the surgery. I know that there is repentance for those people, but there really is no repair for the way they abused their bodies.

Mental Illness

Now, this needs to be a whole ‘nother post too and I will write one in the near future, Lord willing. Medically, we are told that mental illness is a chemical imbalance in the brain and I am not trying in any way to condemn anyone with a mental illness. I take medication myself. But I am learning so much about generational curses and demonic oppression. The Lord can heal any mental illness, instantaneously, or gradually. The reason why I am bringing this up is that mental illness is in our minds and the war against the enemy is in our minds. Some develop PTSD from trauma, some people develop bipolar disorder or schizophrenia and are told that it runs in their family. Most people with mental illnesses go to therapy at some point in their lives and they work through negative thoughts and things that happened to them or words that were spoken over them in their lives. In whatever state, our minds can be transformed by the renewing of our minds according to the Word of God!

If you are struggling with any of these problems or anything else related to your identity, I advise you to get a Bible, make it your best friend, and ask questions. Ask to get an answer,  not to debate. Humbly accept what the Word of God says about who God is and who He created you to be. Get to know our Savior, Jesus Christ! As always, if you have any questions, email me or contact me on any of my social media accounts. I am willing to help lead you to the Lord. Remember, you are greatly loved and anyone can overcome the enemy by the blood of Jesus Christ through Salvation and the power of the Holy Spirit!

The truth is that in Christ you are:

Forgiven

Chosen

Fearfully and wonderfully made

Royalty

A priest

An heir to the kingdom of God

Holy

Righteous

 

A great resource that I highly recommend that talks about spiritual warfare and demonic oppression in great depth is a book by John Eckhardt called Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare Manual: A Comprehensive Guide To Living Free. You can purchase it here on Amazon:

The Mighty Prophet Of The Lord Preparing The Way For The Messiah

History has a pattern and some things repeat themselves. But one thing I know is that if the Bible says it, it will happen!

In the Bible, the book of Malachi says that the Lord will send the prophet Elijah before the day of the Lord. I am telling you that there is a prophet here on earth right now leading a ministry of repentance and holiness, preparing the way for Jesus to come back for the church! He is that prophet the book of Malachi spoke of!

Dr. David Owuor is a prophet whose ministry is primarily in Kenya. For years, he’s traveled the world, preaching repentance in different countries. Since coronavirus, he’s stayed in Kenya, holding services. This is the most powerful ministry on the face of the earth and the Lord has shown Himself mighty through this man.

There have been thousands of healings come from this man speaking the Word of God over people in the name of Jesus. Numerous people have been healed from blindness, deafness, even AIDS! People crippled from birth have gotten up and walked, no longer needing their wheelchairs. One of the most shocking healings I’ve seen was a little girl who had leprosy, healed by the power of words spoken over her by this man of God! Here is a video showing this miracle:

Honestly, I hesitate to tell people about this ministry, but the Lord wouldn’t let me get the idea out of my mind ’til I wrote this post. I’d like as many people as possible to know about this ministry. It has helped me, as well as my family to buckle down, live in repentance, and work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Ultimately, it’s up to you to see the value of following this ministry. I’ve been following this man for years and have never seen him ask for money. So, what’s he doing it for? Why are all of these healings happening and why are so many people from different religions turning to Jesus? Isn’t this the type of revival the church has prayed for?

Another thing Prophet Owuor has displayed in this ministry are hundreds of prophecies fulfilled. He’s prophesied earthquakes, diseases, and other seemingly ‘natural’ occurrences that have happened just the way he said they would. He even prophesied the discovery of a diamond planet, the Zika virus, and yup, COVID-19. Here are a few videos I’ll share with you:

 

So, another thing, Dr. David Owour is actually a doctor. Before he began this ministry for the Lord, he went to school in Israel, as well as in the U.S. He had plans for his life, but the Lord spoke to him of the ministry that would follow. Actually, he ran. He didn’t want to do what God wanted him to do. But the Lord kept giving him visions until he obeyed and started preaching. Here, I’ll share a video of some of his testimony:

 

Just like before Jesus came to earth the first time, to be born as a baby, the Lord sent John The Baptist to prepare the way for His ministry. Many followed John the Baptist, waiting for Jesus to show up on the scene. Now, we are waiting for the Lord Jesus to return and rapture his church, and there is another forerunner. Dr. Owuor is the two witnesses spoken of in the book of Revelation! He has proclaimed it himself and others have testified that they see two men when they look at him, not one. A film director went to one of his meetings to prove him false and instead, she believed in his testimony because the Lord opened her eyes and showed her!

I know this man is not God, but he was sent by God to show signs and wonders to bring many to repentance and prepare the Church of Christ for His coming! If I were you, I’d want to find out for myself, is this man for real? Is this someone I should be listening to? The Bible says we will know them by their fruits. For the past eight years, I have been following this ministry and I have seen many videos of healing, heard many teachings on holiness, righteousness, and repentance, seen many prophecies from his mouth fulfilled over time and there’s nothing to doubt. There’s been no reason for me not to believe him.

I know the Lord wanted me to share this ministry with you, so here you go.

Dr. Owuor website: https://www.jesusislordradio.org/

Dr. Owuor radio station: https://www.jesusislordradio.info/

Dr. Owuor YouTube channel: Repent and Prepare The Way

He comes on live on YouTube Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, usually around 11 AM or 12 PM. He stays on for several hours.

 

I pray the Lord will open your eyes of understanding and show you the truth. In the name of Jesus!
