Agent Double 0 7

Tweet from @ gapmin
I wish my Twitter profile had some "James Bond" type features for spammers.

No, I won't take it back. I wish I had some of those built in gadgets and gizmo's James Bond-Agent 007 (that's double 0 7) had. I'd use them on the spammers that like to follow me on twitter. NO, I'm not interested in your hot shots! Plus, I'm thinking about how Jesus dealt with the 'spammers' of his day, you know the pharisees and the sad-U-see groupies. There they were always up to something ungodly, trying to spam Jesus' name or make him look bad or destroy the anointing. A nice trap door in the floor of my Twitter profile for spammers would be so great, just open it and poof, there they go. But instead I'm going to pray for them .... and let them spam their little hearts out! But I still haven't ruled out some kind of gadget ....

Yes, laughter does me good like medicine. Many Blessings!

Second Opinions

I love watching God do what he does and in this tweet he is speaking through Rev Young, check her out on Twitter @http://twitter.com/ispeakhiswords . Blessings!
"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."Deuteronomy 8:3

Jesus knew the value of the words that came from his Father. He ate each one as if his soul depended upon it. He told his disciples, "I live by the Father" (Jn. 6:57), and then he told them, "He who eats me shall live by me", and "Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you" (Jn. 6:53). Jesus speaks for God; his words are God's words being passed along to us.
We need "second opinions" only when we are being tended to by a doctor who is "practicing medicine". Jesus doesn't practice medicine. Whatever the "great physician" prescribes is always exactly right the first time because he only says what his Father tells him to say. If Jesus speaks to you, don't ask someone else for a second opinion.
"The words of God are pure words", wrote David, "as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times" (Ps. 12:6). There are no impurities in anything God says because there are no influences on His Spirit. You can trust your soul to anything that comes out of His mouth without reservation and in complete confidence that you are entirely right (in doing what He says to do) because he is right.
Genuine faith understands that being directed by God is precious and that the course taken at His direction is perfect. Faith also knows that anyone who opposes the path God chooses must be wrong, and that the man or woman who walks on that holy path can only be right. There are no other options.
Referring to her son Jesus, Mary told the servants at the wedding in Cana, "Whatsoever he says to you, do it!" She was telling those servants, in effect, "Do not ask for a second opinion. The Great Physician has spoken." What kind of advice do you suppose those servants would have gotten if they had asked any other person on earth, "Do you think we ought to pour water into those six pots and then serve it as wine to the wedding guests?"
What kind of counsel do you suppose Noah would have received if he had asked any man on earth, "Do you think I ought really to build an ark?"
And what opinions do you suppose that Jesus would have received if he had asked his disciples, "Do you think I ought to allow men to torture and kill me?"
When God has spoken, it is dangerous to ask for second opinions. God is right! If He speaks to you, just be thankful. Obey His word as quickly as you can so that you can attain to the reward as quickly as you can, and do not ask for a second opinion. There is only one God.

Tweeking Ambiance

Tweet from @CalledWoman
Be such a light that when you walk into a room the ambiance changes.

Rarely am I at a loss for words but this does bring tears to my eyes and capture my words. I don’t know what to say except to reflect on God’s word and let it speak for itself.

Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

Matthew 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

He's Preparing Your Pathway

Tweet from @gapmin
Some things you counted as a "lost" was God removing spiritual blockages out of your path to purpose, let it go!

Okay be patient with me because this is just one of those things that’s challenging to talk about. Who hasn’t lost something and then felt bad or mourned over what they lost? I’m sure we all have but some of us have also realized later that what we thought we lost was a ‘move of God’ to get us prepared to go further with him. Let’s face it, some things in our lives hold up progress and by things I include people. NO, I’m not saying that people are things so don’t get all knotted and chocked up. LOL.

What I’m saying is there are people, jobs, habits, and stuff that God has to shift out of our path of purpose if we are to arrive at our destiny. I’m not going to ask you if you want to arrive at your place of destiny because I know you do, I just know it.

There are some things that we felt we have lost but God moved it so we could go forward of course we don’t find this out until later. So now that we know we will view it differently not counting it as a loss but a strategic move of and by God because we are about to go forward. That’s cause for a celebration don’t you think? Embrace what God does so you can get what God has.--- OH boy, that was a tweet also huh? Don’t forget to comment. Blessings!

Niched Ain't New

Tweet from @gapmin
Jesus was niched, his nich was souls. BUT he did other things also. Ultimately all roads lead back to his nich---> Souls.

All the marketing craze these days is about being niched and it may come as a surprise to some but being niched is not new, Jesus did it. True my Twitter profile is totally UNiched by some standards but it all leads back to my true niche--Jesus.
Jesus was so diverse that he pulled all of his 'giftedness' (for lack of a better word) and anointing into flow with his niche of SOULS and that's what we need to do. Jesus taught us niching long before the marketing gurus came on the scene.
Okay, I have to talk about me here, I'm a minister of the gospel who has a passion for the Lord, art, speaking, photography, music etc. I am diverse and just love living the life the Lord gave me but ultimately all that I do comes back to me serving God. Every photo I take, every painting I paint are all God inspired and for his glory. That's my niche-Jesus. What's yours?

Celebrating over 500 followers!

Tweet from @gapmin
Will my 500th follower be a spammer? tick -tock, tick- tock

I'm pleased to announce we now have over five hundred followers on our gapmin Twitter and we appreciate each and every follower. Connecting with godly and wonderful new connections is a great thing. This ignites my passion to see souls come to the Lord. If we can connect for Twitter we can connect for Christ. Ephesians 4:16 is one of my favorites--I love being "fitly joined". I had to take this opportunity to celebrate Jesus and to celebrate you. BTW, I know it's not official twitter language but I'm unboxed and as long as I'm using twitter I have coined a tweep term that I love, feel free to use it. Spread the word. Ready? here it is --- #followJesus.

I am stuck on bandaids!

Tweet from @calledwoman
I used 2 try to fix things myself, took me a while but I finally learned that my actions R bandaids & God's actions are final solutions!

Seriously, I was controlled by unbelief and wanting things to be perfect. If it was broke (in my opinion) I tried to fix it and of course I had my own way of fixing it. My way didn't work, but I kept on trying. I was getting nowhere, absolutely nowhere! This went on for years until one day as I sat working on a teaching series the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said "that's enough" and I was set free.
I was made FREE INDEED.

Remember the jingle from the commerical that said "I am stuck on bandaids brand cause bandaids stuck on me?" What would it take for us to stop being stuck on bandaids and turn it over to God?" After all we have tried to fix things ourselves for years and haven't seen positive results so why do we keep trying to put a bandaid on our life issues when what we need is a God-solution?

Stop being stuck on bandaids, let God fix it once and for all!

The Off Switch!

Tweet from @gapmin
Father, I silence the noise, the chatter & the negative speech that has come 2 kill, steal & destroy ur promises in the lives of ur ppl.

Everywhere you go there is noise, even in environments that should be quiet. Today's fast paced environment where people are "plugged in" (phones, mp3 players, computers, TV, other media etc..) almost 24/7 make it easy for the enemy to distract us with noise that drowns out the voice of God. There is a place of quiet calm where God speaks in a still small voice (1 King 19). God is speaking, he is giving us direction, strategy, comfort, and building faith but the volumn of noise, chatter and negative speech seeks to drown out the voice that delivers the promises of God.

The easiet thing to do is turn off any noice that interfers with hearing God's voice, that includes the noise other people make. Want to hear God with clarity, hit the OFF switch.

I'm Not Going Back!

Tweet from @gapmin
Live life like going back is not an option, it will create a consistent momentum of forward movement!

Who doesn't want to go forward? We all do and we can! Remove the option of going back to the past; to old habits, behaviors and lifestyles and you'll create a momentum of forward movement in your life. AND God will have your back! He's a God of growth, change and progression and he removes the past as far from you as the east is from the west. If you have found yourself in a pattern of taking one step forward but two steps backward--move backward as an option and just keep pressing full force ahead. Besides, if what's behind you was so great you would not have left it in the first place. Go ahead, put one foot in front of the other and PRESS for the mark of the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus.

Seven Pounds Tweeked

Since Seven Pounds with Will Smith is last year's release I assume you all have seen it. I rarely watch television or movies, it's just not my thing. BUT I enjoyed seven pounds, the storyline was great. By the way this is not a critique of the movie, I'll leave that for the media guru's.

In case you haven't watched it let me make a long story short, Ben Thomas (Will Smith) causes a car accident in which his wife and six other people die because he was using a cell phone and veered into oncoming traffic. Riddled with guilt and a broken heart he sets off to be a giver by seeking sick people in need of organs and plans suicide so that his organs can be donated to those in need. In the course of locating the recipients who would receive the organs he falls in love with a woman with congential heart failure but the doctors report for her is grim. Ben Thomas uses a deadly jelly fish to committ suicide. His organs are given to those has willed them to and the story ends happily ever after---NOT.

I actually enjoyed the movie but would like an opportunity to tweek the storyline just a little bit and inject some hope and the healing power of God. Ben Thomas was riddled with guilt, knowing the accident was caused because he was fumbling with a cell phone and lost control of the vehicle . Let's be real, any one of us would be devastated after such a tragedy but is God able to mend our broken hearts and release us from guilt and condemnation?
Suicide as a good deed; hummnn. Doing good things for good reasons but the wrong way is not a God-thing, or is it? How many people committ suicide as a good deed because they feel hopeless, helpless and a burden to someone else? And what is God's perspective on these good deeds? What we do, why we do it and how we do it all matter. The movie suggest that Ben Thomas' act of suicide is honorable and worthy of praise. What are your thoughts? Is this opening a spiritual doorway of thought whereby we become more 'open' to suicide as a means of ecape?

The power of 140!

@ gapmin
Untweeted--The 140 Prayer

This modern day of technology presents us with communication challenges among families, communities, in churches etc. How will our fast paced keep it short mentality impact our prayer lives. Will we tweet our prayers to God? Toss a '140' prayer in the air as we head off to a day of work and play? Is the 140 a step up or a step down in your prayer life?

The underlying principle of the 140 prayer was around long before Twitter came on the scene, people have prayed short and to the point prayers for years. These prayers have had kingdom impact and in some cases have proven to be effectual fervant prayers that avail much.

Let's flip the script, there is the 140 prayer that is abbreviated, thoughtless, heartless and mere words said for the sake of saying "I pray". What can we do in 140? Can we glorify God, praise him , encourage and lift each other up? That's the power of 140! What will you do with it? Tweet powerfully, tweet sincerely. tweet prayerfully and watch the power of the 140!

Mama Close The Door is coming soon!

Visit us on the web at http://talkshoe.com/tc/23195

Stay tuned for the launching of a new teaching that mirrors our "Out Of The Box!" series and will help to prepare us to help our loved ones (children, husbands, family members etc.) break free of generational bondage even if they are not professing Christians. This can pose a specific challenge as we attempt to explain spiritual matters to those who are not currently walking with God.

1 Corinthians 2:10-14 gives us insight:
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Although our series is Mama Close The Door you'll find it INpowering, practical and useful for being an agent of change in any arena. The wisdom of God will illuminate the biblical principles that can be applied to help us share the gospel with anyone to bring them to a place of salvation and being FREE INDEED.

Lord, I need a way out!

Dead end or seeming 1 way streets R disguised opportunities 4 U to trust God 2 do what U cannot & create a way of escape 4 U.

Raise your hand if you haven't been in a place in your life where you didn't know what to do next or how to do it and it seemed you had run into a brick wall, journeyed down a one way street or stumbled into a dead end? I didn't think I would get many raised hands on that one, did you?
We've all experienced it and brace yourself because we will experience it again; but the good news comes in knowing that with every opportunity that 'appears' hopeless God steps in and makes a way of escape for us. He's just that kind of God!

1 Corinthians 10:13 catapults us to a whole new level in believing God for our way of escape; even when we are tempted he steps in and does not allow us to be tempted above what each individual is able to bear. No matter where you are in this journey called life -dead ends and one ways are excellent opportunities for God to show you who he really is. Your answer, your way of escape and your next step depend on you trusting him; they are just disguised opportunities for him to be Jehovah Nissi in your life. Blessings!

He's Doing It!

This tweet is from @calledwoman
We are watching God do what only He can do; healing the sick, lifting heavy hearts and speaking life to lifeless situations!

I've been watching the many prayer request come in from all over the place, there is one thing we all have in common--needs. Everyone needs something. No, I'm not speaking of the things we want but those 'needed' things. And of course our needs are as diverse as we are but no matter what we need the source of getting that need met is Jesus. He's in the need meeting buiness..whether you need something for your business, you life or family, your spirit, soul or body know that God has your back.

Yes, I know it appears he is not going to do it or that it is taking a long time but be patient, it's coming! There are some things we need done that only God can do, don't you agree?

Grab a hold of Psalms 30:6 which says " And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. " and wait on God. Prosperity is more than money and material things, it is a state of well being for your spirit, soul and body as well as wealth on multiple levels so don't be moved from your place of prosperity!! He's doing it!
