His Eye Is Upon The Sparrow

His Eye Is Upon The Sparrow

About nine at night, the son and I were walking on a path where all we carried was a little flashlight on a moonless night save house lights appearing only from a distance as liken to lightning bugs illuminating a dark sky. We were not afraid, as we had prayed that Jesus would walk with us. During our power walk, we discussed about God’s place in our world. The son wanted to know how God could allow innocent people to suffer and die, if He loved his children so much. I did not know what to say to this young man who was struggling with his faith. I continued to point out God’s many small miracles within our own family. I told him that God approaches all of us on different levels and in different ways, depending on the level our faith. As we concluded our walk in the dark, we parted ways for a bit. As I sat on the outside steps, upon looking at the stars in the sky, an eye appeared in the sky. At that moment, I knew, that our beloved God never takes his eye off of his little sparrow, for even a moment. For a moment in time, his love shone upon me as I realized how very important even my mundane life and issues are important to him. For a moment in time, his eye was upon me…

I believe this to be testimony of a prophetic reminder liken to signs and wonders appearing on the earth, that even though the world and the days may be dark, God is faithful to watch over His people.

What comes to mind is “His eye is upon the sparrow.”

The expression, “His eye is on the sparrow” is meant to be a reminder for us in this hour that God watches over people even in times of trouble or persecution.

Fear God Alone
…28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.… (Matthew 10:28-30)
Berean Study Bible

Job 12:7-10 7
But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: 8Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 9Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? 10In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. (KJV)

Matthew 6:25-32 25
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (KJV)

Let Us Sing:

His Eye Is Upon The Sparrow

Why should I be discouraged and why should the shadows fall?
Why should my heart be lonely and long for heaven and home?
When Jesus is my portion, my constant Friend is He,
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy;
I sing because I’m free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me.

Let not your heart be troubled; these tender words I hear;
And resting on his goodness I lose my doubts and fears;
For by the path He leadeth but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy;
I sing because I’m free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted; whenever clouds arise;
When songs give place to sighing; when hope within me dies;
I draw the closer to Him; from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy;
I sing because I’m free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me…

Great Wealth Transfer

Lord Jesus, praying in this hour for the blessings to come upon your children. We are asking for a vision of your storehouse, for it to be opened to us in our time of need and to bless others. Many of the prophetic through out the years have spoken of the great wealth transfer. We pray the Lord command the blessing upon us in our storehouses and to all we set our hand on; that He will bless us in our land of which He is giving us. May the multiplication of sowing and giving be applicable in our lives, for as we give we shall reap.

Deuteronomy 28:8

“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. (NKJV)

God is our portion. How great is He.

Lamentations 3:24-26

24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord. (NKJV)

We come against fear in the Mighty Name of Jesus! The enemy of our storehouse; the thief, the devourer is to be destroyed. May our substance(s) be released from our storehouses and no longer stolen from our grasp.

Open up the doors of the storehouses of the natural, spiritual and of His storehouses. May the blessings be released and exponentially multiplied. As we have given in faith, may in return we in faith receive that of which we sowed into.

Signs & Wonders In Music

Lord Jesus, I pray in this hour of history, that Your signs, wonders and miracles be made manifest in our lives now as we focus our eyes upon You.  As we give you the glory and adoration in song that is without ceasing, many our voices and notes rise up liken to a crescendo in music to Your throne of mercy and grace. May we worship and praise you ever increasingly in these end times.

In the Bible, signs, wonders and miracles were referenced (see Acts 2:17-19) As we know, a sign is something that points us in a direction. Many of us in this hour ask for direction. However, the sign of the Lord is to point us to Him. We are truly to focus our eyes upon Jesus Christ and be in awe of God. Let us elevate our worship and praise to the next level. May our hearts produce amazement that comes from a true atmosphere of ever-increasing genuine love and song unselfishly to our Lord, to whom all praises should flow. Come! Let us adore Him! Open up our eyes in the finale to seeing the manifestation of signs and wonders evidenced by many as gemstones, gold dust, diamond glitter, anointing oil, feathers and manna. Soon, and very soon, the return of the Lord is near; let us be prepared to worship Him in this hour.

Acts 2:17-19

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: (KJV)

Messages Hidden In Journals

I was given a prophetic word on 7-2-09 from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. She said that in my communion with the Lord, with intercession where reading the Word, I write down things, in my journal. I truly have journals upon journals. I nodded yes in affirmation. The woman said, “Okay.” I was reminded that this is very precious to the Lord. I write things down and then ponder it to the Lord and then pray it back to Him. This is very powerful communion with the Lord; really powerful intercession. Again, I was asked, “I just put it before you, if there are messages in your journals whether some of these messages will come together and be published.” I said, ” I have been praying about that”. Again she said, “Okay. Be published or get to speak them. I see this picture maybe you take your journals and are gathered around a group of people and you say, “I am going to share something. I want to read something from my journal and there are messages linked together.” She continued with, “It is like sometimes when people publish books they have a book reading or something like that it could be. That is the picture I get, so you have many messages that are hidden but people need to know them and it will get out.”

After Hagar wandered in the desert, the angel of the Lord appeared to her (Genesis 16:7-12). After his appearance She gave Yahweh this name saying, “You are the One who sees me.” The well at that place was named “Beer-lahai-ro, ” which means “Well Of The Living One Who Sees Me.” (Genesis 16:14)
[Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance]

Hagar = “Flight.”

El-Roi: The God Who Sees

I have been loved since childhood. Almighty God and I have been knit together in my mother’s womb. He saw it all. He is the El-Roi, “the God who sees.” He looks over me with such fondness, kindness and tenderness. He wants me to realize I am not alone.

EL ROI ~ The God Who Sees Me

El Roi (Hebrewאל ראי‬) is one of the names of God in the Hebrew Bible.

It is commonly translated as “the God who sees me” and is a both descriptive epithet for God using the word “El” (God) and a modifier indicating a quality of God. It was first mentioned in the Book of Genesis (Genesis 16:13), by Hagar, mother of Abraham’s eldest son, Ishmael. [wikipedia]

In The Secret Place

In The Secret Place

I see that I am a private place to the Lord. I am on my knees liken to being in an old church at the kneeling rail of a real chapel type place that is to me, my secret place to the Lord. I have my head down first (in prayer) then up looking to the Lord because I am so enthroned with Him. I am so in love with the Lord. For me, it Is liken to the most secret place of my heart with Him that He loves to reside. I love to be with Him because it is not just only for me, it is for Him. He loves to have me be there with Him. This is such an intimate place in the Spirit. I realize that He encourages me as to how much He loves me and how He enjoys and is so glad I come to Him in the secret place. I realize that there are not very many people who come to that secret place. The Lord is grateful that I come to minister to His heart in the times and places that not many people would not come. I touched His heart.

Psalm 27 verse 4,

One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the [b]beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. 

And to behold, when I think about beholding Him and gazing, for in the Song of Solomon it talks about a garden. It is kind of the same theme, coming into a garden.

Song of Solomon 4:12

12 A garden [a]enclosed Is my sister, my spouse, A spring shut up, A fountain sealed. My plants are an orchard of pomegranates with pleasant fruits of fragrant henna with spikenard and all the sweet smells and of the herbs and fragrances.

Song of Solomon 4 verse 6

6 Until the day breaks And the shadows flee away, I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh And to the hill of frankincense.

Song of Solomon 4 verse 7

7 You are all fair, my love, And there is no spot in you.

In going up to the mountain of myrrh, it is like I am almost stripping off the things that hinder His love for me; He is stripping those things off. He is doing it through me, and I am saying, “Whatever You want. Whatever You want. I do anything I will to sacrifice for You.” This is a wonderful ascent, up that hill, the mountain that I am with Him more and more. In the Lord’s eyes, I am so beautiful to Him.

It Would Take A Miracle

God Can Make The Impossible Change In The Blink Of An Eye!
_____

In the year 1993, I was homeless. I was living in a homeless shelter for women with my then four-year old daughter, Angelica. For belongings, I only had my property in black garbage bags. I was in three Domestic Violence Shelters in over one year and a half in three different cities.

When I was nearly the end of my stay in a shelter, my Christian female friend at the time, Debbie, was driving me to low-income housing to find an apartment. The manager of this one apartment complex told my friend it would take a miracle to move in as there was an 18 month waiting list so she told the manager, whose name was Janice, “I am counting on it.”

The next day, Debbie contacted me. I was told the following story: That previous night, the Apartment Manager had a dream. She was told the Apartment would go to me. She told her husband this, and he told her to go back to sleep. In reality, a woman was supposed to take the Apartment that morning. However, she declined. That decision moved me way up on the 18 month waiting list the present. The Apartment Manager, Janice told my friend, Debbie that I must have been on my knees praying all night. I was praying. So was Debbie. That opened the door for housing, with a four-year old daughter. I was no longer homeless. Then, still penniless, yet rich in The Lord, began college as a single mother, while working and graduated seven years later with two college degrees.

God can make the impossible change in a blink of an eye! In any situation!
