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.

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…

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.”

Now Is The Time

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.

All Scriptural Verses In New King James Version

secretplace

Awake! Deborah, Awake!

AWAKE! DEBORAH, AWAKE!

Mighty Women of God let me ask you this? In the spirit, how do you fight terrorism? How do you fight today,s battles in the home, workplace, marketplace and church? Lift up our VOICES O’ Holy Spirit! May we feel your presence. There needs to be a cry in you, women warriors of God, for more of the Holy Spirit! We must not be complacent. We must not be lukewarm.

JOIN IN UNITY

We must join together in unity, in one accord in this hour! There is no time for stone throwing from one camp to another. We are in the time of Kingdom Advancement for our Saviour, Jesus Christ, our King of Kings, our Mighty General who goes before us in battle. We are to be the prepared hidden ones, clothed and ready coming forth from Elijah’s cave ready to take on the challenge of today. Do you hunger and thirst for more of God? Love others with agape love. Love others as God sees Israel as the “Apple of His Eye.” Do you hear the Lord? Behold, our Bridegroom comes. Go out to meet Him. Light your lamps! Make light! He comes at Midnight! Let us lock hands. For you know a three-fold cord is not easily broken. Let us be prepared to war! To have expectations of revival, means to war for it. Ask for the love of violence in the spirit. Mighty prophetic intercessors, also arise!

It says in the Gospel of Matthew Chapter 11 verse 12-15:
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14 And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

STAND ON GOD

Stand on not what you not SEE in the natural, but from God. As you know, Deborah was a mighty Judge, Prophetess and Mother of Israel. She did not fear, but rose to the occasion in God’s Will to do His work. Arise! Rise up, Women Warrior’s of God into the fullness of your calling in leadership! Yes, you will pay a price, however it is so worth it.

The Lord is using women to find the deceiver, call him out and use her weapons today just as in the days of old with Deborah. Also, be a true rescuer! A rescuer that is willing to lay down ones life for others. Fight! Rise up! Fight Jezebel and the religious spirits of today dressed in self-righteousness. Take courage!

A WIND SONG of CHANGE is in the air through the POWER of the Holy Spirit and in Jesus Christ! Rejoice and be glad!

May we touch other people’s hearts with the Spirit of Truth in Love.

deborah

[“deborah the prophetess” by charles landelle, 1901]

Matthew 25:6 (NKJV)
6 “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming;[a] go out to meet him!’
Revelation 3:14-22 (NKJV)

The Lukewarm Church
14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans[a] write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot,[b] I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’”

White Way To Delight!

THE WHITE WAY TO DELIGHT!

The word delight means “to gain great pleasure, satisfaction, and happiness.”

Psalm 37:4
4 Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart. ESV

The greatest pleasure we can experience in life is walking hand in hand with a Father who adores us.

Chara: Joy: Delight:
Cognate: 5479 xará (another feminine noun from the root xar-, “extend favor, lean towards, be favorably disposed”) – properly, the awareness (of God’s) grace, favor; joy (“grace recognized”).

Isaiah 41:13
13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ NKJV

Firstly, picture a woman in Christ that is on her walk, in her life, clothed in a long blue gown, the color deep and rich. Her sleeves are that of a choir robe, and the neckline patterned into a “V”. I like to think this means she is ~ during her lifetime, on her spiritual walk, in the “spiritual race” and will be victorious in reaching that goal of the spiritual prize of the high calling. Therefore, with many songs on her heart, carrying both the “Logos” and “Rhema” Word of God within her heart, she continues her journey. She is not alone, however; God is always with her.

The days are beautiful. The sun shines high in the heavens. She feels the sun rays touch her face. The feeling is of excitement and happiness surfacing. On this spiritual walk of her lifetime, the woman begins to understand her destiny and calling in her life. It is becoming revealed of her identity in Jesus Christ.

The gloomy days of long winter months arrived. She kept trudging through the endless days and nights. Angelina, the woman in Christ realized she needed more than the garment she wore. Along the journey came not surprising a gift, from The Holy Spirit; it was armor she was to wear along her walk.

She had to put on The Full Armor of Christ.

THE ARMOR OF GOD

The Armor of God
Ephesians 6:10-18

“10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God,so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. “

SUPERNATURAL REALM

How about walking in the supernatural realm, of insight where Jesus, Our Messiah is walking hand in hand through a lovely snow-covered canopy of trees?

The Bride is arrayed in a long white gown flowing with the petticoat circular and full. Her bodice and its seam is embroidered with gold velvet trim with its length reaching the hem. The gold symbolic of The Glory of The Lord and His Power. Her sleeves are long, and full like trumpets from elbow to her hands. The trumpets symbolizing her voice in service to Her Master. Her hands are readying to the full work of servitude. She is wearing a crown, Her King bestowed upon her, His beloved. On her ears, she is wearing a set of white pearl earrings. His pearl of great price. He paid a great price for His Bride.

The King of Kings is now walking along with her on this long canopy of trees covered by white snow. Each tree is representative of an Oak of Righteousness, watching her on this journey with Her Beloved. They clap their hands.

12″For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12

THE VERY ELECT

The trees are liken to the very elect that had gone on before her into glory land; a beautiful paradise called Heaven that awaits His Bride. She had gone through the wilderness as described in The Song of Solomon, and now is entering into the time and chamber with Her Beloved.

He smiles at her. The smile of The King of Kings is dazzling, his teeth so perfect and white as of light itself. Let there be light! He said, Light Be! He laughs with her and enjoys this walk with His Bride to be. It is snowing. All around her is snowflakes swirling and twirling like Christmas ballerinas dancing a prophetic dance each unique in their own design before The King. The atmosphere is very electric, every dancing snowflake bringing many spectrum of colors into the light with resounding music familiar to the beating of His Heart. Oh, the glory!

______

DELIGHT IN THE LORD!

When we delight in the Lord what we desire is the Lord — to keep beholding his glory, worshiping his majesty, seeing his beauty!

So when we delight in the Lord, the desires that we have in our hearts are desires for the Lord. So what Psalm 37:5 means is that if we delight in the Lord, he will satisfy our desires for him, by giving us more joy in him!
______

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Romans 8:32

10 I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up, So the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise To spring up before all the nations. Isaiah 61:10-11

3Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. 4Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.… Psalm 34:3-5
