“Playing the Victim” by Dr.J.

We have so many offenses that Jesus has had to cover in our lifetime and before we were even born. However, in our human proclivity to sin, we struggle covering the offenses of others. In my purging process (yesssss more stuff is in here), Holy Spirit showed me how I played the role of victim all too well. God said to me, “Do you trust me beloved?” I’m like, “Trust You? Yes I trust You. What does trust have to do with me being a victim of offenses? The enemy is always messing with me – using people!” Jesus! 

Holy Spirit revealed to me that if I trust God and that He is in control of my life, how can I be a victim? If it’s happening to me, God’s hand is on me so He is allowing it for my good. My God! Foster love in your offenses. If someone offends you, show him love. Foster love. Create an atmosphere of love. Is it discernment or suspicion? Love believes the best.

Have you ever made the mistake of repeating the offense? I don’t mean doing it back to them -that too- but I mean “saying it” to someone else. Do you have a circle of friends or coworkers or even your spouse to whom you repeat the offenses done to you and to/with whom you talk about your offenders? I had to holler when I read this scripture. Jesus! 

Proverbs‬ ‭17:9‬ ‭NIV‬‬ “Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.”

‭‭We have to stop repeating the offenses, giving power to it, and causing dissension, conflict, and separation between and among people. 

“The ripping up of faults is the ripping out of love, and nothing tends more to the separating of friends, and setting them at variance, than the repeating of matters that have been in variance.” -Blue Letter Bible

Pray about offenses and offenders. Pray and ask God to show you your heart. Why am I offended? Why am I playing the victim when I’m clearly the victor through Christ Jesus? Why am I running and telling my best friends and/or spouse about people when it causes dissension? 

Holy Spirit help us. Help us not to be offended and not to repeat the offenses done to us. Continue to purge us and reveal our hearts to us in Jesus’s name. Dr.J. 

“I Didn’t Lose My Mind” by Dr.J. 

Has anyone other than me been through a series of events that could have made you –almost did make you -lose your mind? But right now you are just as mentally and spiritually coherent as you want to be. The enemy forged attacks so strong that you thought, “If don’t die from this, I will at least have a nervous breakdown.” But God! You still have every one of your mental faculties. A debilitating or demeaning disease? Public humiliation that you may have brought on yourself?  Imprisoned, guilty or innocent? A spouse walking out on you? Wayward children that your natural eyes can’t see coming back? Unable to pay your own bills and you’re depending on other people to help you get by? Debt that you got into because of spirits of rejection or greed? Fighting off spirits of oppression caused by Rejection? Molestation? Rape? Incest? Prostitution? Homosexuality? Promiscuity? Seduction? Being a victim of deception or fraud? Bad credit? Or a combination of all the above… You could have lost your earthly mind. But God. 

If you want to know what blessed is, blessed is “being clothed and in your right mind.” The enemy tried it – all those demons he sent for you couldn’t kill you – through the blood of Jesus, you defeated it. Dr.J. 

Mark 5:15 “When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.”

“The Sooner We Die, the Better” by Dr.J.

When you’ve lived half your life thinking you’re in control of it and being led by your flesh and your will, it is a huge paradigm shift to begin to live in God’s will. If I knew at age 14 what I know now about the perfect will of God, oh how my life would be different. 

To totally surrender every area of your life to God after you’ve lived how you’ve wanted for half your life takes the power of the Holy Spirit. It hurts! It takes dying to your flesh moment by moment. It takes denying yourself the things of the world. 

Your flesh says, “If I want that person, I could have her.” Your spirit says, “God, if You don’t want him for me, I don’t want him.” Your flesh says, “Lust, sex, alcohol and excessive eating are available to me if I want it.” Your spirit says, “Even though these things are available, my body is for the Lord and the Lord is for the body. God will do away with it all.” Your flesh says, “I will work where I want to work, do what I want to do, and live how I want to live and then I will die.” Your spirit says, “No one who is of God keeps on sinning because the seed of God and sin can’t reside in the same temple.” 

It is a daily spiritual battle to surrender and die to the pleasures of this world.  The enemy has us thinking that it is a loss to live for Christ but we know that to live is Christ. If you have children, teach them now to live for Christ. Teach them now that they can’t do any and everything they please. Teach them now that their lives are not their own. Because listen, after living in and of the world for 30 plus years, and then deciding to die, the struggle to be transformed is real. And that’s 💯. 

The sooner we die to flesh the better. The sooner we die to our desires and our will the better. The sooner we die to a mediocre spiritual life the better. It isn’t easy to change now, but the safest place to be is stripped of everything worldly and at the mercy and in the will of God. We don’t know the day or the hour. To die is supposed to be gain; will it be? Dr.J. 

“Go Eat and Lift Up Your Head” by Dr.J. 

‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭1:13-18‬ ‭NIV‬‬ “Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk and said to her, ‘How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine.” ‘Not so, my lord,’ Hannah replied, ‘I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord. Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.’ Eli answered, ‘Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.’ She said, ‘May your servant find favor in your eyes.’ Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.”After Hannah cried it all out and prayed it all out – all her anguish and her grief – she left it all on the altar, went to eat, and fixed her face. After we tell God our problems, after we cry out to God do we really and truly give our burdens to God and leave them there? That takes faith. I mean I have cried and prayed and been upset but instead of giving it to God, I picked my cares back up off the altar and carried them with me. Have you done that too? God says we’ve fasted, prayed, wept, and worried. Now it’s time to leave our cares with Him, eat, and fix our faces. God heard our prayers and cries. Whatever God promised to birth in us, He will birth it. Dr.J. 

“Lord Help Me Today” by Dr.J.

If I move beyond today in my mind, tomorrow can be overwhelming to me. The spirit of anxiety creeps in when we look past today, too far ahead. See, when we look up to God, He gives us directions about what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. He gives us our “next steps.” I dare you to look up TODAY. Ask God to help you in your situation TODAY. Ask God to meet your need TODAY. Ask God to bless you and your family TODAY. Ask God to help you in your finances TODAY. Ask God to give you a reprieve TODAY. Ask God for a divine delay TODAY. Ask God to protect you from your enemies TODAY. Ask God to help you make decisions aligned to His Word TODAY. 

We only get that sick anxious, worrying spirit when we’ve allowed the enemy to show us scenes in our heads about tomorrow, next month, and next year. Shut the devil’s movie down. Don’t look ahead. Look up. All the direction and help you need comes from up there. Dr.J.

“God Sees Your Broken Heart” by Dr.J.

Woman of God, God sees your broken heart. He knows how hurt you are that you trusted “man” with everything you have – your heart, mind, soul, time, resources, and your body. 

God knows that you feel thrown away and used now that “man” has no more use for you. He sees when “man” mistreats you, unfriends you, ignores your texts, leaves you when you need him most, snaps at you like you are an animal, is downright mean to you, and uses your sisters just like he used you. 

He sees you alone in bed at night fighting the spirits “man” left behind. 

He sees how your resources have been drained and strained from trying to buy love, support, and companionship. He sees how you opened your heart and your legs just to receive love – if only for three minutes.

He heard you say, “just spend the night, please.” He heard you pleading for a public date. He heard you begging not to be kept a secret anymore. He heard him answer, “No!”

God wants to heal you. He doesn’t want you to ever put another man before Him. He doesn’t ever want you to choose a man that He didn’t choose for you. He says that you are not to be toyed with or played for a fool. You are His princess.

Carry yourself like a queen. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or what was done to you. It doesn’t matter what you may have contracted. It doesn’t matter if your last night was last night. It doesn’t matter if “man” doesn’t want you any more. God still wants you. 

Please don’t cry. God has a plan for you. You’re beautiful. You’re necessary for the kingdom. God sees your broken heart but more importantly, God wants to mend your broken heart. Let Him. Dr.J. #daughtersofaKing

“The Fire Works for You” by Dr.J.

I dare you to keep your joy. Even if there are no fireworks for you, you always have the Fire working for you. You have the power of the Holy Ghost Fire working out situations and even people on your behalf right now. God is perfecting things and people concerning you right now. This seventh month of the year is the month that God is bringing things to completion for you and something new is on the horizon. 

Holy Spirit said to me, “Let Me complete it. Let Me work it out. Let Me perfect it. You’ve been obedient, now let Me prepare your reward. Don’t do anything else but stay obedient and trust God. Favor is yours.” 

We are trying to light sparks and set a match to situations and people to set things in motion. God said we’ve done all we can do now put the dynamite down and let the dunamis power work out some things on your behalf. 

Now only a few will be able to receive this in your spirit and that’s ok. But for those of you who can, get ready for the Fire to work. Who needs fireworks? We have Jesus! Dr.J.
