We The People ~ DeVonne Reed

Just a thought...

"Church"

Church, is the "place" we come to assemble together, the place, where we are supposed to draw strength and find peace. A place of refuge, a shelter to come to, after all of the issues of life, each one of us face, on a daily basis. You know the things that have almost taken us under!

It is the place to be refreshed, restored and sustained.

It is like going to a gas station, to refuel your empty car.

A place to be filled up, refueled and ready to face the days that will unfold ahead of us.

The "church family" is called to be "IMITATORS" of Jesus.

IMITATOR: noun
1. Impersonator, someone who ASSUMES the APPEARANCE of another.
2. Copycat, emulator, someone who COPIES the WORDS or BEHAVIOR of another.

IMPERSONATE:
Portray or act the character of.

IMPERSONATION:
IMITATING the MANNERISMS of another person.

Remember, I am talking about Jesus.

DO WE LOOK LIKE HIM?
ARE WE COPYING HIM?
ARE WE ACTING LIKE HIM?
ARE WE WALKING LIKE HIM?
ARE WE TALKING LIKE HIM?
DO WE HAVE HIS MANNERISMS?

HE IS THE GIFT OF LOVE.
HE WAS MOVED WITH COMPASSION. ALWAYS.

WE, THE PEOPLE ARE THE CHURCH.
WE ARE THE CHURCH BODY.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
19. WHAT? Know you not that your BODY IS THE TEMPLE of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of GOD, and ye are not your OWN?
20. For ye are BOUGHT with a PRICE: therefore glorify GOD in your BODY, and in your SPIRIT WHICH ARE GOD'S.

1 Timothy 3:5.
For if a man know not how to rule his OWN house, how shall he take care of the church of GOD?

If we expect people to come into the building, that we call our "church"
the place that we assemble to worship GOD. Then, we the people, we the church, are to PORTRAY the IMAGE of HIM, JESUS, who was and still is, our ultimate example. If we call ourselves Christ-like, then, we are to be the same EXAMPLE, to a lost and dying world. Also to the church family that already exists.

Galatians 6:10.
As we have therefore OPPORTUNITY, LET US DO GOOD UNTO ALL MEN, ESPECIALLY unto them who are OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.


This will be the determining factor of whether people will come in, or not.

If IT Matters To You ~ DeVonne Reed

If, "IT" Matters To You
April 26, 2015. 2:00 am

When something matters to you..."IT really matters, doesn't "IT?"

No matter what that something is, whether "IT" is circumstances beyond your control...

Maybe your dreams and your visions, have been shattered, and you are broken, because of this...

You may be experiencing sickness, that is causing your body extreme pain.

 "IT" could be that you are in need of new direction in your life...

Maybe you have prayed, and prayed earnestly, even shed many tears about your situation and you are still silently awaiting your answer.

Perhaps, right now, you feel like you are only hanging on by a frayed thread, find your strength in GOD'S unconditional LOVE, tie a knot in " IT" and HOLD ON! HOLD ON! HOPE IS ON THE WAY!

JESUS IS THE ANSWER.

REMEMBER, YOU ARE SPECIAL TO OUR FATHER and
YOU MATTER!

If, "IT" matters to you, "IT" doesn't only matter to you.
"IT" MATTERS TO GOD!

HE knows the number of hairs on your head, they are numbered.
You can trust HIM!

HE sees every sparrow that falls to the ground.
Are you not of much more value, to HIM?

HE IS CALLING...COME UNTO ME, ALL OF YOU, THOSE OF YOU, WHO ARE AT YOUR WITS END, THOSE WHO ARE TIRED AND WORN, HE SAYS, CEASE FROM YOUR OWN WORKS. HE PROMISED TO GIVE REST.

HE CARES.
HE IS SPEAKING PEACE.
PRAYER IS THE PLACE, WHERE BURDENS CHANGE SHOULDERS.

If, "IT" matters to you, "IT" doesn't only matter to you.




Much Love, DeVonne

Stop Murdering Your Christian Brothers and Sisters ~ DeVonne Reed

DeVonne Reed
April 25, 2015

I have been forgiven!
Have you been forgiven?
When we ask God to forgive...HE does!!!

HE places ALL of our sins, ALL of them, into the sea of no more remembrance!
As far as the east is from the west! Never to be remembered against you, and I, ever again!

Why is it then, that we have such a hard time forgiving ourselves?

Because we have some enemies!  Yes, we do!
The devil, people, and ourselves.

First, The devil is the enemy of our soul, he is the accuser! He never takes a rest. He is constantly trying to make you relive your past. Remember, He is walking about, AS A ROARING LION seeking whom he may devour.
The Key word here is, AS!
It is time, TODAY, to put him in his rightful place, where he belongs... Under our feet!

Secondly, we have people. Some are family, some are close friends, some are acquaintances and then we have the religious crowd. A people who "think" God came down from HIS SEAT and changed places with them. These know-it-all folks, who think they have everything figured out. They have set themselves up as the jury, the judge and the executioner!
SITTING IN JUDGEMENT...
Pointing their hypocritical, religious finger at anyone who goes against their beliefs.
Notice I said, "their beliefs." Most of the time they go by their own experience and DO NOT have a clue about the details of your situation, anyway!
Never caring enough to find out what the Word of GOD says about it, nor do they apply Biblical principals in finding a solution.

The type of execution they use is their tongue! What a POWERFUL, but small WEAPON it is!
In my opinion, it would seem to me that it would be more humane to take a gun or a knife and kill them once, than to continually use your tongue to murder that person over and over again!
Think about this...The tongue, has brought down many people, crushing them, until they would have been better off dead.. Insead of trying to repair themselves after harsh words, and lies, were spoken in the spirit of condemnation, against them. Even if you know what is being said, is the truth, it is WRONG for it to be repeated. This is another way to condemn and wound someone, also, it is called GOSSIP!

Oh, be careful little lips, what you say!

Yes, these self righteous people will bring up your dead and buried stuff, as long as you allow them to do so! IF YOU continue to allow them, they WILL DO IT! They will remind you of ALL of your PAST mistakes and failures. You can stop it! Tell them that your past is just that! Your past! Because, Thank you Jesus,  IT IS UNDER THE BLOOD!

"DOES ANYONE HAVE A MIRROR?" Take a long look at yourself...before you go saying something about someone else!

Hmmmm......Maybe, we should carry our own bag of pebbles, rocks, and stones, to hand out to our accusers...because, we know they are talking, anyway!
ACCUSERS...Do not forget where GOD has brought you from! You may just find yourself walking in the person's shoes...you know, the one you are slicing through and murdering  with your sharp tongue. The Word describes "the tongue" as a small member, but it is full of deadly poison! No matter the size of your words, they all hurt!

Thirdly, we are our worst enemy. We feel that we have done too many things that are unpardonable. We believe that we cannot be forgiven. We hold ourselves captive to the condemnation our old way of life. Remember this, ALL of us have a past! ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD.

Do you remember these words? JESUS said, "Neither do I condemn thee!"
"You who are without sin, you be the first one, to throw your stone!"

IF you are a born again, blood bought Christian, then as children of God, being Christ-like, just give them the words of Jesus! Don't try to justify yourself about anything...you do not owe an explaination, if you have been forgiven!
Because, in their courtroom, anything you say, can and will be used against you!

Do you remember these words? Jesus said them!
JESUS SAID, "WHERE ARE YOUR ACCUSERS?"
The woman said, "NO MAN, LORD."
JESUS SAID, "NEITHER DO I CONDEMN YOU, GO AND SIN NO MORE!"

There is NOW NO CONDEMNATION...TO A BLOOD BOUGHT CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH  GOD!

Stop listening to the enemy he is a liar!
Stop listening to people!
Remind yourself, GOD LOVES YOU!
THE BLOOD OF JESUS COVERS YOU!
YOU ARE FORGIVEN!
YOU ARE A NEW CREATION, IN HIM!
Get in the Word of GOD, all of the answers are there! Find out to WHOM it is, you belong!
Then you will not have any questions, as to who you are in Christ Jesus!
Do it today!
Forgive yourself and move forward!

Much Love, DeVonne

The Games People Play ~ DeVonne Reed

Lyrics Joe South. 1969

Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean

While they wile away the hours
In their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine

Oh we make one another cry
Break a heart then we say goodbye
Cross our hearts and we hope to die
That the other was to blame

But neither one ever will give in
So we gaze at an eight by ten
Thinking 'bout the things that might have been
and It's a dirty rotten shame

People walking up to you
Singing glory hallelujah
And they try to sock it to you
In the name of the Lord

They're gonna teach you how to meditate
Read your horoscope, cheat your fate
And further more to .... with hate
Come on and get on board

Look around tell me what you see
What's happening to you and me
God grant me the serenity
To remember who I am

Cause you've given up your sanity
For your pride and your vanity
Turned your back on humanity

********************************************


By: DeVonne Reed 4/23/2015.

Oh, The Games People Play!

The days of
HIDE AND SEEK
are over!

I believe, God is tired of the "games" people play!

Ready or Not...
HE'S COMING!

HE WILL FIND YOU!

Come out, come out where ever you are!
Because, no matter where you are...

READY OR NOT...

HE'S COMING!!!

#HEseesEVERYTHING!
#HEhearsEVERYTHING!

Repent ~ DeVonne Reed

Written by: DeVonne Reed August 27, 2014.

I realize this is a long post. But, it is burning within my heart. I feel the need to share it today.

REPENT
1. repent, atone, turn away from sin or do penitence.
2. repent, regret, feel remorse for; feel sorry for; be contrite about.

Turn away from? What does that mean?
TURN:
1. To change the position of so as to show the other side.
2. To change the direction or course of. To direct or change one's way or course.
3. To transform or to become transformed; change.
4. A departure or deviation, as in a trend.

It's time for the church to REPENT! IT'S TIME FOR A REVOLUTION!

Revolution: A SUDDEN or momentous CHANGE in a situation.
[< Lat. revolutus, p.part of revolvers, turn over.]
Marked by or resulting in RADICAL CHANGE.

REVOLUTIONIZE: TO BRING about a radical change.

Revolve: To orbit a central point.
To turn on an axis.
To recur periodically.
[< Lat. revolvere, turn over.]

Question.
How many of you have ever used revolving doors?
I have. You and I know, we must make the conscious decision of when to exit. Otherwise we will continue to rotate around and around, spinning in the same direction.

Repentance IS NOT a revolving door! It is making the decision to go in a different direction.
To turn away from it and exit! If you are sick and tired of the insanity of doing the same things over and over, expecting them to change, then its time to STOP IT! EXIT the revolving door of sin and REPENT!

 Matthew 4:17.
From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, REPENT: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mark 1:15.
And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of GOD is at HAND: REPENT ye and BELIEVE the GOSPEL.

Luke 13:3.
I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT ye REPENT, ye shall all likewise perish.

Acts 2:38.
Then Peter said unto them, REPENT, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the Holy Ghost.

Acts 3:19.
REPENT ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the LORD.

Acts 17:30.
And the times of this ignorance GOD winked at; BUT NOW COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT.

Revelation 2:5.
REMEMBER therefore from whence thou art FALLEN, and REPENT, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly and remove thy candlestick out of his place, EXCEPT THOU REPENT.

Revelation 2:16.
REPENT; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 3:19.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and REPENT.
20. BEHOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR, AND KNOCK: IF any man hear my voice, and OPEN the door, I WILL COME INTO HIM, and will sup with him, and he with me.

AGAIN, Repentance is not a revolving door! Until we STOP the old patterns, of living our lives any way we want to, and if we continue to partake of those things we know are wrong, we are not a new creation! Continuing in sin, will separate us from God and we will remain the same old person.
Romans 6:23.
For the wages of SIN IS DEATH; but the GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.

Romans 10:9-13.
That if thou shalt CONFESS with thy MOUTH the LORD Jesus, and BELIEVE in thine HEART that GOD hath raised HIM from the dead, THOU SHALT BE SAVED.
10. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto SALVATION.
11. For the scripture saith, WHOSOEVER believeth on HIM shall not be ashamed.
12. For there is no DIFFERENCE between the Jew and the Greek: for the SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
13. For WHOSOEVER shall CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.

COME unto Jesus, give Him your life today!
2 Corinthians 6:2.
For HE saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation I have succoured thee: BEHOLD NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.
2 Corinthians 5:17.
Therefore IF any man be in Christ, he IS A NEW CREATURE:
OLD THINGS are passed away; BEHOLD ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW.

God LOVES you!

Grief ~ DeVonne Reed

Grief.
4/20/2015. 1:20 am.

Grief:
1. Heartache, heartbreak, brokenheartedness, intense sorrow caused by loss of a loved one (especially by death).
2. Grief, sorrow something that causes great unhappiness.

Grief-stricken:
Bereaved, bereft, grief-stricken, grieving, mourning, sorrowing, sorrowful through loss or deprivation.


I am sharing this with those of you who are hurting, right now.
 
Now, at this very moment you are feeling like your heart is broken or that it has been shredded into a million pieces, as you are going through or facing the most painful or difficult time or event of your your life.

Whether you have lost a loved one to death, or perhaps you are going through a divorce, or a separation, whatever it may be...and no matter what your situation is or your circumstances are, the pain you are experiencing, it is real. It really does hurt, and it hurts deeply. This may be the worst pain you have ever experienced.

If you have lost someone or something near and dear to your heart, REMEMBER, it is okay to grieve. Go ahead and cry. God cares, HE see, HE knows.

Psalm 56:8. KJV.
Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
Yes, HE has your tears in HIS bottle. In HIS book, every tear you have shed, every one of them, they are recorded. Tears are the language that God understands.

Grief is real. There is no limit, take all the time you need.
TRULY, the matter of the heart, is a matter of the heart!

They say, "Time heals all wounds." Maybe a broken heart is included. Maybe it does.
But, I believe, that Jesus is the HEALER and MENDER, of all things that are BROKEN.
Pick up your heart and carry it to healing hands. There is no scar, no pain he won't understand. Those broken dreams you've carried this far, need HIS touch to mend. Pick up your heart and carry it to healing hands.

I am praying for you!


Much Love, (((Hugs))) and Prayers.
DeVonne.

Year End Clearance ~ DeVonne Reed

WRITTEN BY: DeVonne Reed.
December 30, 2014.

At this time, we have heard tons of commercials about huge clearance sales.
Companies, selling out old inventory and making way for new merchandise to arrive.

This is the word, I received at 4:30 am. December 30, 2014.

I heard, Holy Spirit, very clearly.
He said,
"Today is the day. It is time for the Year End Clearance!"

Definitions.
Clearance: the distance by which one thing clears another.
The space between them.
Vertical space available to allow easy passage under something.
Clearance.
Permission to proceed.

Clearance sale:
Inventory - clearance sale.
Cut-rate.
Reduce inventory.
Making room.

I heard, Holy Spirit say, "it is time to get rid of all of the junk, clutter, and unusable items.
Get rid of the stuff that is just laying around taking up too much space, in your life. It is time to take out the trash and empty it. GET RID OF IT!"
He said,
1. Clean your slate- Your life.
Get rid of ANYTHING, (ALL) that will separate you, from ME!

He said,
2. Clean out your closet- Your heart.
Get rid of all of that extra baggage. It is filled with weights, and they are too heavy for you to carry.
Take it out. EMPTY THE TRASH! Let go of the things you have carried and held onto for years. Such as: jealousy, anger, unforgiveness, wrath, malice, and hatred, etc. He said, go deep into every crevice, nook and cranny, clean it out and get rid of it!
There is no room for ME, as long as you continue to carry the deeds of the old man. Don't let bitterness defile your life any longer.
Take off the old tattered and torn garment and put on your new garment. Be renewed in the knowledge after the image of Jesus. There is a new place HE wants to take you to. It is a place of peace and rest."

3. He said, " walk in love, forebear, and FORGIVE, FORGIVE and FORGIVE!"
LET IT GO!

"YEAR END CLEARANCE"
If we will cleanse ourselves, and reduce our inventory, get rid of our own cut-rate items, He will bring new ones. "IF" we can see, we need to let them go, and just DO IT, Father will see that we are willing to make room for Him, to work, putting the new things in their place.
HE has promised to give to each one of us direction.
When we decide to make the clearance, HE WILL give us clearance!
He will show us a passageway, He will give us a license to move forward. He will give us His permission, and His authorization, for us to proceed into this new year, fully equipped and ready for His use.

Much Love,
D'sHeart <3

~ DeVonne Reed

Walk in LOVE. Walk in freedom. Pray for your enemy.
Pray for those who use you. Pray for those who speak against you, falsely.

Everlasting ~DeVonne Reed

NEVER FORGET This...YOU are LOVED.
Remember who you belong to and who you are in Christ Jesus!

Before you and I were born, GOD KNEW us. HE KNEW we were imperfect and we needed a SAVIOR. Thank you Father, for sending Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV.
For HE hath made HIM (JESUS) to be sin for us, WHO KNEW NO SIN; that we might be made the righteousness of GOD IN HIM. Thank you, JESUS!

Even hanging there on an old rugged cross, HE looked ahead in time. Seeing us...HE bore our sins...HE carried the sins of the whole world, ALL because of HIS EVERLASTING LOVE, that give us the GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE!

Jeremiah 31:3. KJV
The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have LOVED thee with an EVERLASTING LOVE: therefore with LOVINGKINDNESS HAVE I DRAWN THEE.

Psalm 139:1-2, 13-14, 17-18, 23-24 KJV
1. O Lord , thou hast SEARCHED me, and KNOWN me .
2. Thou KNOWEST my downsitting and mine uprising, thou UNDERSTANDEST my thought afar off.

13. For thou hast POSSESSED my reins: thou hast COVERED ME IN MY MOTHER'S WOMB.
14. I WILL PRAISE THEE; for I am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE: MARVELLOUS are thy WORKS; and that MY SOUL KNOWETH RIGHT WELL.

17. How PRECIOUS also ARE THY THOUGHTS UNTO ME, O GOD! how GREAT IS THE SUM OF THEM!
18. If I should count them, they are MORE in number THAN THE SAND: when I awake, I AM STILL WITH THEE.

23. SEARCH me, O God, and KNOW MY HEART: TRY ME, and KNOW MY THOUGHTS:
24. And SEE if there be ANY wicked way IN ME, and LEAD ME in THE WAY EVERLASTING.


#HE #KNOWS #YOU #TOO!
#HE #LOVES #YOU #TOO!
#EVERLASTING #LOVE


HE KNEW me, YET...HE LOVED me.

NEVER ALONE...NO NEVER ALONE! ~DeVonne Reed



Psalm 27:7-10, 13-14 KJV

7. HEAR, O Lord , when I CRY with my voice: have MERCY also upon me, and ANSWER me.

8. When thou saidst , SEEK YE MY FACE; MY HEART SAID UNTO THEE, THY FACE, LORD , WILL I SEEK.

9. HIDE NOT thy FACE FAR from me; PUT NOT THY SERVANT AWAY in ANGER: THOU hast been my HELP; LEAVE ME NOT, NEITHER FORSAKE ME, O GOD OF my SALVATION.

10. When my father and my mother FORSAKE ME, THEN THE LORD WILL TAKE ME UP.

13. I had FAINTED , unless I had BELIEVED to SEE the GOODNESS of the LORD IN THE LAND of the LIVING.

14. WAIT ON THE LORD : BE OF GOOD COURAGE, AND HE SHALL STRENGTHEN THINE HEART: WAIT, I SAY, ON THE LORD.

Situations ~ DeVonne Reed

SITUATIONS ~DeVonne Reed
4/11/2015.

As you see, I have a lot to write about today. I realize this is a bit lengthy. Please consider reading the whole blog, and allow this note to sink into your spirit man, then allow Father to speak to you today. Listen to HIM and do what is necessary, to set yourself free

Be CONFIDENT, Be BOLD, Be COURAGEOUS.


What is courage?

● COURAGE:
Bravery, a quality of spirit that enables you to FACE DANGER or PAIN without showing FEAR.

What is a coward?

● COWARD:
A person who shows fear or timidity.

● COWARDLY:
Fearful lacking courage; ignobly timid and faint-hearted. Afraid.
Timid: fear and lack of confidence.


From D's <3
Wouldn't you agree with me, that situations are easy to fall into, but most are very hard to escape from.

Some situations are easily dissolved.

Some require a lot of careful thought, and preparation, as we try to release others and ourselves, without causing pain. However, all of us KNOW that it is impossible.

Isn't it true, none of us desire to hurt anyone. Never, would we intentionally inflict pain upon anyone...especially those we love.
We only wish to protect them, especially their heart.

Each situation is different.

Sometimes we are unaware and unsure of how we arrived in the midst of where we find ourselves.
We end up looking in the mirror, asking ourselves this question, "What brought you here, to this time...to this place?"

The answer is: a big thing called life! Life happens, while we are making plans.

No matter what situation we find ourselves in, I am convinced, "everything" happens for a specific reason. A season of time. A lesson or a blessing.
I believe in God's timing. HIS TIMING is perfect! I also believe in "divine appointments."

ALL situations, REQUIRE COURAGE! Whether it be starting or finishing them.

Just as it requires COURAGE to say, "hello," to someone for the first time.
It will take more COURAGE when and if the time ever occurs, to say, "farewell."

Take COURAGE, be BRAVE, be COURAGEOUS! Even if it hurts you to do it. Do it! Even if it means causing pain to someone you love, always be truthful with them, after all, isn't that the way of LOVE?

It is better to tell the truth, than to continue to comfort someone with words you think they want or need to hear.

Words of advice, "Never allow anything or anyone to make you unhappy, or to cause you to pay the awful price of losing your happiness!"  ~DjR.

We all know life is filled with choices. It is not always easy making the right ones. Is it?
Certainly, we do not always make the best choices, and at times, unintentionally,
you and I may cause ourselves and others to feel deep pain.

Aren't we are creatures of habit? We find ourselves in a revolving door, that never seemingly stops. I once heard that, "insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results."
Well said, wouldn't you agree?

If it is causing you pain, release it and let it go, LET IT GO!
No, it will NOT be easy...just do it! Do it, anyway!

Go on now...close the door, and lock it behind you. Because you are not going that way.

Here is a thought...
A puzzle is just a bunch of pretty, colorful, cut pieces in a box...UNTIL, we decide to work it. You and I, will never see a finished picture, until it is completely put together.

I cannot tell you how many times, I have put puzzles together, getting down to finalizing the picture, saying to myself, "Yes! I am down to the last few pieces." Only to find out, that the last piece, is not in the box! It is missing. WOW! How frustrating! All of that effort, only to be disappointed! How sad! It isn't worth keeping it, because it will never be able to be completed. It will only take up storage space.

It is the same in life. My Daddy always told me, "you cannot force a round peg into a square hole."

God sees, HE understands and HE KNOWS ALL about us!

GOD can mend and restore you, every part of you! NOW, right now, at this very moment.

Pick up your heart, no matter how torn and shredded it may be. Carry your fragments to HIM. Trust HIM. HE is able. HE will make something truly beautiful out of your all of your brokenness. ~DjR

Be a BRAVE soldier, BE COURAGEOUS. Take the first step and march forward.

Much Love, DeVonne.

Life Is What YOU Make It! ~ DeVonne Reed

Life Is What YOU Make It! 4/9/2015.
~ DeVonne Reed




Thinking about how many people, grown folks... who are so quick to point their finger of accusation towards you, along with these words coming out of their mouth, "LOOK, WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!"

Pretty heavy, right? Wow! We must be very powerful creatures, to be able to create your world!
People are continually, steadily and readily blaming others for the way their lives have turned out.

When in fact, they have created their own drama. By the choices they have made, ALL BY THEMSELVES. It is your own snare, your own trap, your own pit and you are blaming others, because want someone else to fall with you, when you are fallen.

It is due to the words we speak, the actions we take, the choices we make. What we did yesterday definitely has an effect on where we are today. Remember, we caused it.

We are to blame and we are the reason for the season, we are walking through, right now. It comes through what we allow! Keep allowing it- it will continually keep happening. It is a vicious cycle. Only you and I can STOP IT!

Yes, sometimes the devil attacks. But remember he is a created being, also. He cannot create! He cannot speak the truth, he only speak lies! Remember, he is the father of ALL LIES! We have the option, not to listen to him!

Yes, sometimes GOD may allow you to experience things. But it is usually HIS permissive will, not HIS PERFECT WILL for your life.
Remember, HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST for you and I. HE WILL WALK AND TALK with us, HE will lead and guide us. Yes, HIS WAY IS PERFECT!

The ony way we will ever come out of this, is to grow up! Accept the fact, YOU and I are the "one" to blame. LET'S OWN UP TO IT! LET'S OWN IT!
It is "Me," "Myself, " and "I."
I did this!

We are no longer children. Grow up, start acting your age, instead of your shoe size!
It is not your parents fault!
It is not your spouses fault!
It is not your children's fault!
It is not your bosses fault!
It is not your pastors fault!

Take a long look in the mirror...if we don't like what we are seeing, then we must be the one to CHANGE IT!

Take responsibility for yourself.

Start over!

START SPEAKING LIFE!

Proverbs 18:21.
Death and Life are in the power of the tongue: and they that LOVE it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Life Is What You and I Make It!
Make It Count!

Remember, Don't Lose Hope ~ DeVonne Reed

Written by DeVonne Reed
4/8/2015.




EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS HOPELESS.

Remember...
DON'T LOSE HOPE.

YOU SEE THE SUN SETTING, IT IS GOING DOWN IN THE DISTANT GOLDEN WEST.
WHEN IT DOES, YOU MAY FEEL AS IF YOU ARE ALL ALONE IN THE DARKNESS, NOT KNOWING WHICH WAY TO TURN IN THE MIDST OF YOUR SITUATION.

We Are What We Eat ~ DeVonne Reed

Once again this post is not directed toward one in particular. I am being obedient.
He that has an ear let him hear.


August 2014.

STUMPED: Particularly difficult or baffling questions or problem. Mixed up.
BAFFLED: Perplexed by conflicting situations or statements.

1 Corinthians 14:33. For GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, as in ALL CURCHES of the saints.

What happens to us when we start lending our ears and listening to people think they know everything? Whose ACTIONS DO NOT line up with the WORD OF GOD!
They say with their mouth, "l love God, but their heart is far from HIM."

Be aware of what you are being fed, and what you are eating!
BAD THINGS GOING IN...BAD THINGS WILL COME OUT!
GOOD THINGS GOING IN...GOOD THINGS WILL COME OUT!

JESUS says, it is not what goes in but what comes out of a man that DEFILES HIM!
Matthew 15:3, 7-20. NIV RED LETTERS HERE!
3.JESUS REPLIED, "And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of YOUR TRADITION?
7. YOU HYPOCRITES! Isaiah was right abut you:
8. These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
9. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human RULES."
10. JESUS CALLED THE CROWD TO HIM AND SAID,
"LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND.
11. What goes into someone's mouth DOES NOT DEFILE THEM, but what COME OUT OF THEIR MOUTH, that is what DEFILES THEM."
12. Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?" (Really? you want to correct JESUS?)
13. HE REPLIED, " EVERY PLANT that MY HEAVENLY FATHER has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.
14. LEAVE THEM; THEY ARE BLIND GUIDES. IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH WILL FALL INTO A PIT."
15. Peter said, "Explain the parable to us."
16. "ARE YOU STILL SO DULL?" JESUS ASKED THEM.
17. DON'T YOU SEE that whatever ENTERS the mouth goes into the stomach and then OUT OF THE BODY?
18. BUT the things that come out of a persons MOUTH COME FROM THE HEART,
and these DEFILE them.

LISTEN CLOSELY TO THIS VERSE!
19. For OUT OF THE HEART COME EVIL THOUGHTS - MURDER, ADULTERY, SEXUAL IMMORALITY, THEFT, FALSE TESTIMONY, SLANDER.
20. THESE ARE WHAT DEFILES A PERSON; but eating with unwashen hands does not defile them.

Folks talking out of both sides of their mouth. Double minded in all of their ways!
James 1:6-8.
6. But when you ask, you must BELIEVE and not DOUBT, because the one who doubts IS LIKE A WAVE OF THE SEA, BLOWN AND TOSSED BY THE WIND.
7.That PERSON SHOULD NOT EXPECT TO RECEIVE ANYTHING FROM THE LORD.
8. SUCH A PERSON IS DOUBLE- MINDED AND UNSTABLE IN ALL THEY DO.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not one to place a lot of stock in dreams! But, I had a dream. I believe it came as a warning to me.
My DREAM: August 1, 2014.

I saw people working a garden. The soil was prepared. They began planting "their" seed. Some of the seeds that were planted, were good seeds. Some of the seeds were rotten. The seeds grew up together and were harvested. (Just like the wheat and the tares.)
The harvested grain was gathered up, and the workers did not recognize the difference.
They were allowed to bring the "mixture" in.
This grain was a mixture. Poison, mixed with good.
The workers ground the seeds together to make flour.
From this flour they made bread.
It was served.

In my dream, there was a certain person, a woman. She seemed pleasant, and was aways smiling. As she walking amongst the people she was carrying a beautiful serving platter, it was filled, stacked up like a mountain with this bread. She was serving all of the people who were gathered there.

The bread smelled delicious, and looked very appetizing, indeed. She was serving the people there, they were eating this bread, they were saying," oh, this bread is delicious, this is so good." I noticed, as soon as they took their first bite, their countenance immediately changed. I was screaming, "DON'T EAT THAT! DON'T EAT THAT!" They did not hear me! Some began to look sick, some were choking, some were vomiting, and some even died.
It shocked me, that there was no alarm! The server, kept right on serving this bread, as if nothing was wrong with it!

She stopped in front of me, expecting me to take a piece. I quickly stepped away, backing up, I moved far away from the platter. The person serving the bread, came toward me, she forcefully pushed the platter up close to my face, speaking harshly to me, she demanded, that I was to take it and eat it! I looked at the bread. I did not touch it. I spoke back to her, I said, "I DO NOT "RECOGNIZE" THIS BREAD, AND I "REFUSE" TO EAT IT, AND I WILL NOT "PARTAKE" OF THIS!"      MY DREAM ENDED HERE.

I WAS SHAKEN, when I was awakened!
Holy Spirit moved and spoke these words. I wrote them down.
This bread is a "mixture."
"WORDS" filled with poison. It not only did it make some sick, it wounded some, and it killed the innocent. The server was allowed to continue speak the poison. He said, "DO NOT BE DECEIVED" these words have even effected the seasoned, and mature Christians as well. But, because they did not see with their spiritual eyes, or hear with their spiritual ears, they did not discern whose spirit they were allowing to speak into them. Believing lies. They have eaten this bread of wickedness, they have chewed it up and swallowed it, they liked the taste of it, so much they have gone back for second and third helpings. HE said, they loved it! They loved it so much, now they are living, what they have eaten". I also heard Holy Spirit say, "these people have been IN THEIR OWN WAY for so so long. They have CONTINUALLY done the same things OVER AND OVER in REPETITION for many years, so long in fact, they believe their "own way is the only way" HE said, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE WRONG, They believe they are RIGHT. THEY have been DECEIVED by a RELIGIOUS SPIRIT with an UNTEACHABLE SPIRIT to boot!"

They look down on anyone who stands up and speaks the Word and declaring its truths, because they believe....that they are truly the only ones who can clearly hear from God! Everyone else is beneath them. Therefore they are allowed, to belittle, criticize, make decisions concerning everyone else and their walk, whether they are even SAVED OR NOT! Questioning if people are even a blood bought member of the body of Christ!
This is happening everywhere, and seemingly, nothing is done to STOP these people. Or is there is not enough discernment to recognize and STOP THE Spirit of religion and its CONTROL? Or have we become so used to it, that we've turned a deaf ear and chosen to take a blind eye refusing to see this and address it? They REALLY BELIEVE THEY are the ONLY ONES who are RIGHT, and YES, in their own eyes they are!

I pray, Oh God, anoint their eyes with eye salve, that the scales that have blinded them for so long, let them fall off, and bring their spiritual eyes back into focus, to see clearly, before it is too late. In JESUS name.

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Who will ask Father for more dicsernment? Who will stand in agreement? Who will stand in the gap and pray against this this religious demonic force?
O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, I ask You for more of JESUS, I desire and need more of HIS Love, Grace, Mercy and Compassion, evenly mixed with a deeper level of the spirit of discernment...YES LORD, today, more than ever, before! Grant it, in Jesus name. AMEN.

A dear minister friend of mine, she always ends her sermons with this quote.
"Baby, you better not die, if you don't love me."

REPENT quickly and ask for FORGIVENESS.
Because, the wounds that you have inflicted to one of Gods little ones, the ones you have caused to shed blood. Their blood will be required at your hands.

An Appointed Time ~ DeVonne Reed

God created ALL THINGS.
SEASONS.
A season does not just mean, winter, spring, summer and fall.

We have our calendar, we use it to determine changing seasons and how we make our plans. We plan our natural life by it. We plan our vacations year to year.
We plan and make out our schedules month to month.
We plan which errands we need to run, week by week.
Yes, we are living life, day by day.
Many times our plans change! We have to scratch off and pencil in necessary adjustments to our calendar, to fit the surprises that come unexpectedly.

One thing is very certain, GOD IS NEVER TAKEN BY SURPRISE!

GOD HAS HIS CALENDAR. GOD IS GOD!
HE does not have to scratch off or pencil any changes to anything on HIS calendar.

HIS WORD IS FOREVER SETTLED! GOD HAS A PLAN! GOD HAS A PURPOSE!
GODS TIMING, IS PERFECT! Unlike people, GOD MAKES APPOINTMENTS and HE KEEPS HIS!

GENESIS 1:14.
And GOD said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for "SEASONS", and for days, and for years"

From a Biblical view, look at the word season.

HEBREW MEANING of SEASON: MOED or APPOINTMENT.

•properly, AN APPOINTMENT, i, e. a FIXED TIME OR SEASON; SPECIFICALLY, a festival, conventionally a year; by IMPLICATION, an ASSEMBLY (as convened for a definite PURPOSE): technically the congregation; by extension, the PLACE of meeting; also a SIGNAL (as APPOINTED BEFOREHAND): - APPOINTED (SIGN, TIME), ( PLACE of solemn) assembly, congregation, (SET, solemn) feast, APPOINTED, DUE) SEASON.

SHEMITAH: Literally means "TO RELEASE"
• Every 7 years, there IS A RELEASE of debt, bond servants and rest for the land.
• The next Shemitah begins at sunset on September24, 2014 and will end at sunset on September 12, 2015.

Rules of the Shemitah
(were designed to bring everyone back to a place, to be able to START OVER.)
• ALL debts that are owed by a neighbor are to be FORGIVEN, unless he is a foreigner.
• If you live in the land of Israel, you must let the land rest every seven years.
• Public reading of the Law.

ARE WE READY FOR GODS APPOINTMENT?
HAVE WE RELEASED EVERYTHING?
HAVE WE RELEASED "ALL" THAT GOD SAID TO RELEASE?
HE SAID, THE APPOINTMENT, IT IS GRANTED, IT IS AN OPEN DOOR, A DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY, TO START OVER!
"ALL" DEBTS ARE FORGIVEN!
LET "IT" GO, "RELEASE IT" and LET "IT" GO!

Psalm 27:14.
WAIT on the LORD: BE OF GOOD COURAGE, and HE SHALL strengthen thine heart: WAIT, I say, on the LORD.

HE THINKS ABOUT ME ~ DeVonne Reed

April 5th, 2015.

As I sit here in the sand, a couple of scriptures entered my mind and my spirit leaps within me!

Psalms 139:17-18.

How PRECIOUS also are YOUR thoughts unto me, O God! How GREAT is the SUM of them! If I should COUNT them, they are MORE in number than the sand.

 How BEAUTIFUL! Looking at the sand, I am surrounded! It is on every side of me and underneath me, too!

It is at this very moment, I am reminded of just how much My FATHER LOVES me! Innumerable are HIS THOUGHTS about me... Therefore, I realize...
How Much I am Worth To HIM!
