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?
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
“Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me” Ruth 1:16-17
Her loyalty to her mother-in-law Naomi, is what God blessed Ruth to be King David’s grandmother.
“Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39
God honored Ruth’s words, “your God my God.” Ruth lost her home, her husband, her brother-in-law, her father-in-law and her sister-in-law left. So she decide to stay with her mother-in-law Naomi. She was able to remarry and give birth to a son. With the help of Naomi’s wisdom and God’s favor. Loyalty over desire. -tsuLife Author
This topic has been brought up with me and God a few times. He has been showing me the chooses I make now will effect the generation to come. Through my own future kids and the people that are touch by God through my life. He has been pouring love in a new understanding of what I can give. With a complete submitting in the Spirit to walk in His love.
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)
What kind of life are we living?
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. (Proverbs 15:4)
What kind of life are you speaking over your live & the ones that are around us? Knowing the gifting that is over your life. This is what God spoke over me as I read Revelation 22
Through seasons of our lives the Holy Spirit will deposit a new gift, when you are faithful with the last. Seasons bring change, if your not willing to change, you’ll never work through your gifting. Over coming to Victory to Victory. Glory to Glory to the full manifesting of God in our lives.
God highlighted this scripture, “On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding it fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.” Revelation 22:2-3 NIV
Then the Lord showed a vision of a tree on top of the earth with the words of the gifting from the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NKJV on twelve branches:
Discerning of Spirits
Interpretation of Tongues
Love (in the middle)
There was a crown in gold with light coming out of the bottom of it onto the tree.
God want us to use our gifting to heal the nations, so heaven will come to earth through the gifts of the Spirit in our lives. Be Blessed. -tsuLife Author
The Lord brought me (My Reader) as the first of his work, before his deeds of old; I (My Reader) was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began. When there were no ocean, I (My Reader) was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water; before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I (My Reader) was given birth, before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world. I (My Reader) was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked our the foundations of the earth. Then I (My Reader) was the craftsman at his side. I (My Reader) filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind. (Proverbs 8:22-31)

As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say to me, “Where is your God?” When I remember these things, I pour out my soul withing me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast. Why are you cast down, I my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance. O my God, my is down with me; Therefore I will remember You form the land of the Jordan, And from the heights of Hermon, From the Hill Mizar. Deep call unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His shall be with me. A prayer to the God of my life. I will say to God my Rock, “Why have You forgotten me? Why of I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?” As with a breaking of my bones, My enemies reproach me, While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
