And Zacharias said to the angel. “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.” And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time.”
Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
Disbelief can bind up our mouth. God doesn’t want our lack of faith get in His way. God doesn’t want our excuses on why it can’t be done. He just wants our yes. Zacharias wife Elizabeth hind herself for months until Mary came over. Then she did, Elizabeth began prophetic over Mary, on what her child was going on this earth. I feel when we get our promises from God. He want use to hind ourselves until it comes to pass. For these promises need preparing so they can be in the perfect will of God. After Jesus was born, and when Mary heard people praising Jesus. This was her response, “But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” I think she knew how to keep the secrets of Heaven. I said this once to somebody, “What if Mary wrote a book in the Bible. All the things she would have known about Jesus.” What did God promise you? -tsuLife Author
Here’s a thought… Zacharias was a priest and his wife Elizabeth was of the daughters of Aaron. Joseph was of the house of David. The only thing they said about Mary that she betrothed to Joseph. Where did she come from? Why did God pick this young girl with no written family line to carry Christ?
Random thoughts… grateful for the amazing people I have in my life. Some that are willing or care enough to get me out of my pit. How much distractions can really throw any person off there track on what God wants for there life. Just because it the easiest doesn’t mean its the right way. Cause most difficult path could be the most rewarding. Even tho I had so many people really destroy my life and wound every part of me. For some reason I bounce back, I know it has to be God cause I would have throw in the towel a long time ago. It’s that hope, that things will get better and it has. With my last heart to heart with a friend, that my lack of trust with people is causing me to fear people. I never realized that what was plague my heart. Any form of confrontation I would just run cause I didn’t want the person to yell at me or make me feel small. I can give you the sob story of why I’m like that. But I really don’t like the pitying. I’m more of, find out what it is and get rid of it… and move on. So that my thought for the day. Trust people and if they hurt you, God will smite them in the face. I’m joking about the last part. -tsuLife Author
“I wouldn’t trade my salvation for anything in the world.”
I want to be abandoned in His love. I want to see Him face to face. Like friends, for Mose was a murder and saw God face to face, what is the excuse then. Our flaws don’t disqualify us, we disqualify ourselves. Thinking our sin is bigger then God. When we walk closer to God, He works on us. He makes us holy and righteous in His sight. We can’t make ourselves holy but He can. Just to get the revelation that our sin is already paid for. Past, present and future is already paid for. So don’t have to be a victim to it. I live to show God’s grace and love to ones that has no hope. To live above themselves and have a living breathing relationship with God. He is more willing then we think its capable of it happening. How to walk out someones will if you don’t know what they are saying about it. Walk out in faith. -tsuLife Author
I was in intercessor prayer for a conference, over 4 weeks ago. When the pastor asked me if I was going to stay after the prayer. I felt it was important to stay. I had a interview that I cancel, so I could stay. I was talking with the pastor and everyone else in the group. They were talking about Bill Johnson being in Harrisburg. I thought to myself “I would love to go” and just dropped it. At that moment I joined there intercession team. The journey starts in supernatural favor.
On Sept 24th at church during worship, I was in the front. When a guy starts prophesying over me, “women ministry, deeper hunger….” Then a women says to me, “Nik, you are ready.” At the end of the service another women came up to me as I was sitting on the ground. “Are you going to Harrisburg? Cause God wants me to give you my ticket. You just have to find a ride and a hotel.” I just start crying and shaking cause God remembered I wanted to go. I was hanging around at the end while they were cleaning up. I asked the pastor if she was going and how many people were going, too. I told her what happen during worship. Then she turned to her husband and asked him, “Can Nik come with us and stay in our room. We have the couch.” I looked at her with my eyes wide open in shock on what I was hearing. He said, “Yes”, she turns back to me and says “We are leaving at 6:30pm on Thursday. Meet us at our house.” So I took off of work on Friday and I was off to Harrisburg two days later.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me. Psalms 51:12
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Psalms 51:17
Isaiah 35 Joy of the Redeemed
“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;
It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice,
Even with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
The excellence of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the glory of the LORD,
The excellency of our God.
Strengthen the weak hands,
And make firm the feeble knees.
Say to those who are fearful-hearted,
“Be strong, do not fear!
Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
With the recompense of God;
He will come and save you.”
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.
For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
The parched ground shall become a pool,
And the thirsty land springs of water;
In the habitation of jackals, where each lay,
There shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
A highway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a fool,
Shall not go astray.
No lion shall be there,
Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it;
It shall not be found there.
But the redeemed shall walk there,
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
To have freedom in Christ to be yourself. He doesn’t ask you to stop being who you are, just sin. There are more to God then people know. When you become into a convent relationship with the living God. He shows himself as a Father, a Husband and a Love. You have to be willing to go into the deep places with Him. He will move into all areas of your life. Things will be lost and gain, but remember whatever is lost in His name sake. Will be giving back double folded in this lifetime. When you’re in Him, He has full control. He becomes responsible of your life. He will never put you through something you can’t handle. Let joy of the Lord be in all areas of your life. -tsuLife Author
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. Roman 8:26
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone. 1 Timothy 2:1
As Christ was the intercession for our transgression. (Isaiah 53:12) As we are the intercessor for the people that do and don’t know God. To bring there troubles to the throne room of Heaven.
Daniel the prophet was the intercessor for king Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel stood in the gap between God’s judgement for Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel wanted mercy for his king, saying “I wish this word was for your enemies.” Even tho the king was evil, taking Daniel from his land and after his parents being killed. To have strength to still have mercy for him. Nebuchadnezzar didn’t turned from his way and all the things Daniel said come to past. In the end Nebuchadnezzar did repent and glorified the God of Daniel.
How many times have we been in the gap for people that you know that desire judgement for their sins, but to ask God for mercy for their transgression. (Matthew 5:11 NKJV)
I have one friend that God has me interceding for. Even giving them a prophetic word but still will not receive it. I try not to get upset when this happen. I had another friend said to me, “they are not rejecting you but the Christ in you.” I’m still standing in the gap for this person, even tho this person has hurt me. I pray as Daniel did, that they can come to a full repentance so they can glorify God with there whole life. All authority was giving to Christ and then He gave it to us. (Matthew 28:18-20) -tsuLife Author
For people that have wounds. I have seen them self destruct over & over. Wounds that make them feel like victims. If you stand from a place of victory, just to have a understanding that our past doesn’t defile us or our future. When our actions become a place of pain, they are usually self center. That we desire these & that cause the world owe me something cause this happen.
My thoughts go back to Christ when my heart wonders into self pity. Jesus also didn’t desire to die for something He didn’t do. That was our sins on the cross, not His. But He did it out of love & He was able to see the big picture. Moving past temporary pain for eternal Glory. We have to move past our pain, going through grace to the end at His glory. He is waiting for us to get up, like He did at His resurrection. Move forward, don’t look back. Let the Lord handle your past. -tsuLife Author
