Go Get It!!!

One thing that you can never disqualify is the power of music. Music is a ministry, whether many want to believe it, or not. And there is a message in music, if you’ll only listen. So many times, we get caught up in the rhythms, chord structures and licks. That stuff is the sides to the main course. You see, I’m not a vegan and I want the meat. Stop bobbing your head and listen to the song!!

This morning, I woke up hearing the song, “Go Get It” by Mary Mary. This song is the inspiration for today’s letter. You see when I first heard this song, I was like, “Yup, they’ve done it again! Another hit!” The beat is nice. The rhythms keep you engaged. The chorus is simple, repetitive, and people will remember it, even when it’s not being played. All the makings of a hit song, right? Wrong!!! That’s just corn and mashed potatoes…

Here’s the meat, check out the message that’s being sent. This song is about overcoming your struggles and moving into your next level!!! This song is prophetic. This album was released in May 2012. So, how can I say this song is prophetic if it was released almost a year ago? A true prophetic word tells of what’s coming, not what’s happening, that’s the news!!! The news tells us about what’s going on. It’s just a report.

2013 is the Year of Manifested Blessings!!! The year where the prayers that you’ve prayed will FINALLY be released!!! Some of us have been praying for and have been prophesied to about many things. And we’ve been waiting patiently for God to make it happen. Well, now is the time. Today is the day. Go Get It!!!!

The 2nd verse of the song speaks volumes to me. It says…

You were made to live a good life and that’s what I believe.
So hit the floor. Say a prayer. Start working. You got to do something.
It’s alright to crawl before you walk. It’s alright to walk before you run.
But if you wanna get, what you never got, you gotta do something that you never done

I would dissect this verse word for word but I won’t… this time. There is at least a 4-Part series waiting to be taught in that one verse alone!!!

This is the Year of Jubilee!!! The Year of Celebration!!! The Year that God is Releasing His Favor, Blessings, and Miracles in YOUR Life!!! It’s time for YOU to take that LEAP OF FAITH and GO GET YO’ BLESSINGS!!!!

I love you ALL!!!
Stay Blessed,

The Right Outlook…

This morning was the second time in a few months that I actually prayed on our church’s prayer call. Our prayer call has been open for over a year and in this time I’ve probably missed only a handful of calls. Usually, I call in and bask in the glory with my phone on mute. I enjoy starting my day in prayer but I haven’t felt “lead” to lend my voice to it.

Most of the time, we blame the ‘spirit’ for our indecisiveness. We have to have a fall guy. So, we blame God for us not moving or acting… saying that we’re waiting on God, when in fact it’s the other way around. He’s waiting on us.

Quite honestly, I’ve been pretty angry with God. I know that none of you ‘real’ Christians have ever had that testimony but, I do. My spirit has been wounded by life. Different events have happened to me and I’ve carried the hurt of these experiences. The funny thing is that there are always 3 choices to be made at any given time… God’s Choice, the devil’s choice AND my choice. And, let’s just say that some of the greatest hurt that I’ve experienced hasn’t been because of God’s or the devil’s options.

We are our own worst enemy. The Bible says in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” There is One who knows and that’s God. He can and will help you, if you let him. Psalm 51:10 says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” We have to be open and ask him. Ask and it will be given; seek and you will find; knock and it will be open… We have to ask, seek and knock.

I was watching TD Jakes’ telecast this morning and he spoke about the blind man in Mark 8 and how he was healed. The powerful thing about this particular teaching was that there were other blind people that were healed after only one touch but, this man needed another touch in order to clear his vision. He was no longer blind but his vision wasn’t clear. He told Jesus what he saw and was given a second touch that made him whole.

All too often, we settle for the first touch knowing full well that the work isn’t finished. We are still seeing ‘men as trees’. God wants to complete the work but because of the issues that we carry… one touch isn’t enough. What separates us from being thoroughly complete is our acknowledging where we actually are and taking the next step – going back to get finished.

Yesterday, I still had cloudy vision but as of this morning… I praise God for 20/20!!!! God is great!!!

Don’t settle… God wants to do a COMPLETE work in you. Only you have the power to go back and get the rest. He’s waiting on you…

I love you ALL!!!
Stay blessed,
Jackie
