HIGH FIVES FROM ON HIGH!
March 8, 2010
Whoo Hooo! Oh, yeah! That's what I'm talkin' about! Yes and Amen!! Praise God! Preach it!......... Wonderful bloggin' for Jesus friends!!
I have been so blessed and amazed by all the words of encouragement, words of insight and discernment, words of joy and laughter, words that challenge, words that stir a deeper desire to dig for rich treasures from the Word of God, anointed words of poetry and lyrics that point to His Heart, words of friendship and love, words of faith filled prayer, words of hope, healing words, deliverence words, freedom words, prophetic words, and in other words - God is using our bloggy words in such powerful ways that I can scarce take it all in!!
Day after day as I visit your wonderful blogs, I find that my Spirit just want's to jump through the computer and give each of you a high five, ya'll! I find my self agreeing, smiling, moved to tears, laughing, praying, filled with peace or crying out for more of Him with every wonderful blog stop! And it's amazing how the Holy Spirit often weaves a common thread, message or scripture that "show's up" in several blogs about the same time! How powerful is that! The God of Heaven through the Holy Spirit inspires our listening heart and mind and as we pen our bloggy words they are launched into the vast blogosphere to land at the right place and the right time to minister a word in season!! Just this morning, the first blog I visited had a word from Heaven just for me!! Her anointed post was filled with direction and encouragement from my Fathers heart tailored made for my heart!! I'm sure you've experienced the same! Hallelujah!...That's what I'm talkin' about!! Glory to God!!
A few weeks before I started blogging last October, the Lord encouraged me with the most amazing scripture that is now my personal "blog anchor scripture"......
"I'll write the book on your righteousness, talk up your salvation the livelong day, never run out of good things to write or say. I come in the power of the Lord God, I'll POST signs marking His right-of-way." Psalm 71:15-16 Message (emphasis added)
He knows me - He gave me the gift of gab (I personally think gab is one of the gifts of the Spirit that Paul forgot to include....LOL! JK!!)! I'll talk up His goodness, mercy, compassion, love, power and salvation all the livelong day and never run out of things to write or share about HIM!! AND when my eyes fell upon the words "I'll POST" in that scripture, I nearly did cartwheels across the room!! He knows I'll yak about Him anyplace, anytime, anywhere but last September I needed that final confirmation or Divine "push" to finally press the publish button and launch Fresh Oil Today!!! I mean, to press the publish button was as intimidating to me as pressing the launch button for the space shuttle!!! Crash and burn or victoriously soar into infinity and beyond, yikes??!!! But, isn't it amazing how one word from God can change everything!!
So, the flow of words penned within our blog posts that are Holy Ghost breathed upon are an amazing Divine thing! Who knows, the words you posted today may be just the rightly designed and seasoned words to minister Salvation, hope and healing, encouragement, deliverance and peace to that precious soul crying out to God in a pit of despair from somewhere on the other side of the globe!
Precious bloggy friends, let us remain in hot, passionate pursuit of His Heart and continually abide within the the treasury of His Word and let the outflow of our Divinely ordered bloggy word's touch the hearts of every reader and bring Him Glory!!
And someday, in Eternity, while worshipping together around the throne, I can only imagine that He might introduce you to the precious ones that your words so deeply touched and hear Him say "Well done thou good and faithful blogger"!! Glory to God!!
Uh, listen! Can you hear it?? I think I'm hearing the sound of HIGH FIVES FROM ON HIGH!
Keep on Bloggin' for Jesus ~ One word at a time, dear one!!
HE IS FAITHFUL!
Luv, Hugs and Sweet Blessings!
