Being Set Free

When the Lord gave me this Word, “Being Free”; our family was going through some really tough times. Bills were coming in and needed paying, and yes we had needs and yes we were in lack in areas, BUT...This Word was a reminder to quit looking at “those things”.  I was being set free; even though, in the natural, it didn’t look like it.

The Bible is filled with scriptures about God; providing, sustaining, increasing us and and bringing us out. However, this was a Word…or what one would call a “RHEMA” Word from the Lord. When He spoke these Words to my spirit; it blessed me and encouraged me to stay in faith and to press in more. To not give up hope. He reminded me that I needed to be patient while He was

Mat 6:31-34 KJV Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (32) (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (33) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (34) Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.working on things behind the scenes.

Faith vs Senses

When we take our eyes off of His promises and place our eyes on our circumstances and things in the natural or what we call the physical realm… what we can see, hear, taste, touch and smell…our 5 physical senses; then it takes faith out of the equation. Because looking at the things / situations / circumstances in the natural removes, diminishes, waters down and OVERRIDES what GOD says about our situation. It takes faith to believe God and faith is not something that we can do or be in if we are basing our outcome by what is going on in the natural.

You see, In the natural it looked like it was taking a long time and at times it looked like it wasn’t going to happen at all. It looked like we were going to go under financially and be in lack FOREVER.

Seeking first the Kingdom

Repeatedly, the devil tried to bring thoughts of doubt, fears and unbelief to sway me from holding fast to God’s Word, but when I purposefully put His Word first. Mat 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousnessIMPORTANCE OF THE WORD; and all these things shall be added unto you. That’s when things began to change.

As He walked us through this time, there were things in the natural we did. Besides listening to and obeying any instructions that He gave, every time a negative thought would come, recognizing it and then taking it captive; replacing those thoughts with scripture, then speaking His promises and what He wrote in His Word out loud and then; purposefully not allowing any worrying and fretting; about the: who’s, what’s, when’s, where’s why’s and how’s, it was going to get done.

It has been 3 years and I can truthfully say that He has and is still keeping His Word to us. I have seen Him do the miraculous; REPEATEDLY. Not just with our finances and household / family needs, but within our family and our relationships with each other; as well as, friends and those whom we are called to help. Money, resources, provision, food and other things needed has come in from unexpected sources to pay bills, and take care of all our needs even when we didn’t know where or how we were going to accomplish it. We have also been able to sow into and help others when their needs arose. As a family, we have become more of God minded instead of self minded!!!

EXPECT INCREASE AND OVERABUNDANCE IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFEkey to success

There have been many prophets and ministers and Words from the Lord coming forth from all around the world; concerning this year 2017. Each Word spoken and released through these many men and women has had the same theme throughout…..EXPECT INCREASE AND OVERABUNDANCE IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.

The Lord isn’t just talking about money, even though money is important…He wants to increase you in ALL areas.

The things that The Lord wants to do in you, for you and through you; is to increase you to a place where all your needs are met, and you have more than enough. Being a help, supply and encouragement to those around you and to those whom He draws near to you.

I challenge you to stop looking at your situations in the natural and override it with THE WORD…Be bold this year and purposefully choose to take Him at His Word!!! Go after HIS THINGS and WATCH HIM TAKE CARE OF YOUR THINGS. Much Love and Prayers Carol Helmick.


INCREASE

This year is a year for GREAT INCREASE in the Body of Christ. God has plans, purposes and desires for each and EVERY ONE of His children to fulfill. Many times when we finds out what The will of God is for our life; there is much temptation to either:

Stepping out and trying to make things happen

It’s not something that is always intentional. The thinking is that once we find out God’s will or He allowed us to “see” bits and pieces and / or parts of His plan; the desire, drive and zeal to fulfill His will for our life; it seemed easy to start making decisions based on this information and our decisions began to overshadow and replace His way, plans and order of things.

Psa 75:6-7 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. (7) But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

When things do start to “happen” the temptation is there to take the credit for these personally.

When doors are opening and promotion has begun to manifest; the temptation is to become puffed up as if it was us that “MADE IT HAPPEN”, based on ones…faithfulness.043657c54a0b7914588c3c3918c92030 monitor garden…revelations, knowledge, relationship with The Lord, one’s connections with people, or any other reason that our minds can come up with.

Deu 8:10-11 and 17-18
(10) When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
(11) Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

(17) And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
(18) But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

So, If you find yourself being complimented or watching doors opening and the thinking is to pat yourself on the back; or other doors are being shut or your wondering when your breakthrough is going to happen and your thoughts turn to frustration and/ or resentment because of what is happening for others, or your riddled with fears and thoughts of the unknown; then that is a good sign to stop and remember…

Increase with Faith and Patience

Be patient and allow Him to promote you!!!  You don’t always get to “see” what He is doing behind the scenes to bring about one’s promotion and increase; into fruition. People, circumstances and situations are constantly in a state of being moved about; and orchestrated for His purpose and for His Glory!!!  Trust Him with all the changes by putting into daily practice…faith and patience;  allowing these things to unfold in your life. He is the ONE Who deserves all the Glory, credit and Praise. Much Love and Prayer…Carol Helmick


MY POWER

Stand FIXED ~ FIRM AND PLANTED in His WORD.

Don’t back down from believing God and His promises. I know that sometimes it seems that things are taking longer than what you think that they should be, for your breakthrough or turnaround moment; however God is still working behind the scene. And, just when you think that you cant hold on any longer; THIS is the moment to dig your heels in deeper and NOT give up.

Signs , wonders and miracles happen to those, for those and with those who BELIEVE.

my powerIt is because, test, trials and situations will arise and challenge you spiritually, emotionally and even in your bodies. If you will allow Him to use the time you have spent with Him; saturating and renewing your minds, strengthening your spirits and stirring up your faith; its at these times that you can hold onto your faith in Him and release your faith; concerning those things which are trying to bring you down and defeat you. The devil wants more than anything to destroy you and convince you; that what God has said isn’t true and that God is a liar.

His Power makes it possible

Eph 1:17  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20  Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21  Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

They are watching

 The WORLD is watching us to see what we are going to do and are doing during these times! What is your response going to be and what would it take for you to step out and believe God to use you and allow His power to operate through you; the way that He wants to.

Therefore, I challenge you to dig deeper into your relationship with Him; because Faith pleases Him. Spend quality time with Him; reading His Word and allowing The Holy Spirit to reveal Himself more to you. He has plans and a purpose for everyone.

So, Be BOLD…STEP OUT and BELIEVE HIM!!! What has He spoken to you about His plans, will and purpose for your life? There are people that only YOU can reach and He needs for you to be the ONE to accomplish it! Be one who DOESN’T GIVE UP ~ NOR BACK DOWN.

HEAVEN’S PRAISES

HEAVEN’S PRAISES is actually the 2nd of 3 poems that The Holy Spirit gave me on Sunday March 17, of 2013 at 3:25 pm.heaven's praises

My family and I had gotten back home from church and hadn’t even taken my jacket off yet. While still meditating on the message from the service, felt an urgency to go grab paper and pen and go sit down in my favorite chair. My heart was full of wonder and awe at just how Great our God is and began to feel His anointing and inspiration beginning to bubble up on the inside of me; felt like a belly laugh starting to overtake me and so began to worship Him and praise Him.

What was so cool about this experience was that what I thought to be just one big poem / Word; began to break into three different ones….The more I would write out and meditate on the words that I was hearing the more I realized that I had three different ones coming out at the same time. Not only did I get Words; He was also giving me pictures and visual glimpses of the themes, behind the Words. Very exciting time I had in the Lord.

I had never had this happen before. Usually He gives me one at a time, but this day I got a three in one special…What fun Our God is!!!  It was exciting and enjoyed walking it out and watching them unfold all at the same time.

Jesus Loves us very much.

Our Heavenly Father deserves ALL glory, honor and praise; and heaven’s praises do fill the air.

So lift up holy hands today and thank God for what He has done for you today!!! There is much to be thankful for.

Allow His gifts in you to be used to His glory and to be a blessing and encouragement to others today!!!

Much Love and Prayers Carol Helmick.


Praying for those in Authority

I am committed to praying for those in authority now, and also for those who will be placed in these positions of authority later. Things are changing and more changes are to come; not only as a nation, but individually as well. Our nation is changing from glory to glory; upholding and supporting; those who have been put into positions of power and authority with my prayers. There are major choices and decisions that will be made, new laws will be passed and others changed; that will affect every area of our lives.

1Ti 2:1-3  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
vs:2  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
vs:3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

When praying for those in authority and covering the ones in charge with our prayers; ask Our Heavenly Father for His wisdom, knowledge and revelation to be imparted to them; so that they will make the right choices and tough decisions that need to be made, on behalf of us as individuals and as a nation.

So, Be blessed, encouraged and know that your prayers and voice are not only heard but important to the ONE listening…Our Heavenly Father!!!

Much Love and Prayers Carol Helmick
