Joseph named his firstborn Manasseh and said, "It is because God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father's household."........Genesis 41:51NIV

 

THEY HAVE GREATLY OPPRESSED ME FROM MY YOUTH, BUT THEY HAVE NOT GAINED THE VICTORY OVER ME.  PLOWMEN HAVE PLOWED MY BACK AND MADE THEIR FURROWS LONG.  BUT THE LORD IS RIGHTEOUS; HE HAS CUT ME FREE FROM THE CORDS OF THE WICKED....Psalm 129:2-4NIV

O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, Behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.  And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.  And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.  In righteousness shalt thou be established:  Thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.  Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me:  Whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.....Isaiah 54: 11-17 KJV

 

Hallelujah!  Glory to our God!   Praise his wonderful name!

 LET IT GO FOR 2011
By Bishop T. D. Jakes

There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from
you:
let them walk.

I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with
you,
loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you,
staying
attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is
never

tied to anybody that left. The bible said that, they came out from
us
that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had
they
been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.
[1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are
not joined to you, you can't make them stay. Let them go.

And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that
their

part in the story is over.
And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so
that

you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when
it's
dead. You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something.
I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I
believe

in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and
I
know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if
it
takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay.
LET THEM GO!!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and
was
never intended for your life, then you need to......
LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains......
LET IT GO!!!

If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your
worth.....
LET IT GO!!!

If someone has angered you.......
LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge..... .
LET IT GO!!!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction... ...
LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or
talents ............
LET IT GO!!!

If you have a bad attitude...
LET IT GO!!!

If you keep judging others to make
yourself feel better......
LET IT GO!!!

If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new
level in Him........
LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken
relationship. ......
LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help
themselves.. ....
LET IT GO!!!

If you're feeling depressed and stressed .........
LET IT GO!!!

If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling
yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you
need
to......
LET IT GO!!!

Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a new thing for 2011!!!
LET IT GO!!!

Get Right or Get Left .. think about it, and then.....
LET IT GO!!!

"The
Battle is not yours, it is the Lord's!!!"
 

THEY THAT SOW IN TEARS SHALL REAP IN JOY.  HE THAT GOETH FORTH AND WEEPETH, BEARING PRECIOUS SEED, SHALL DOUBTLESS COME AGAIN WITH REJOICING, BRINGING HIS SHEAVES WITH HIM......Psalm  126: 5-6 KJV

Sister, you will be healed!  You will rejoice! You will have victory in Jesus!  You will move on to a life of peace and happiness, filled with God's perfect love.  THANK YOU, LORD!

BEHOLD, I GIVE YOU THE AUTHORITY TO TRAMPLE ON SERPENTS AND SCORPIONS, AND OVER ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY, AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU.  NEVERTHELESS DO NOT REJOICE IN THIS, THAT THE SPIRITS ARE SUBJECT TO YOU, BUT RATHER REJOICE BECAUSE YOUR NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN HEAVEN....Luke 10:19-20NKJV

Thank you, Jesus!

 
'I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart;                                        

  I will enter His courts with praise.                                                                        

I will say this is the day that the Lord has made;                                              

                                                                I will rejoice for He has made me glad.'

                                                                ....From the hymn 'I Will Enter His Gates', composer unknown

In truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as imposters; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.....2 Corinthians 6: 7-10NIV.

I Am A Soldier In The Army Of God!

 

I am a soldier in the Army of God.

The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer.

The Holy Bible is my code of conduct.

Faith, prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare.

I have been taught by the Holy Spirit,

Trained by experience,

Tried by adversity,

And tested by fire.

I am a volunteer in this Army,

And I am enlisted for eternity.

I will either retire in this Army at the rapture,

Or die in this Army;

But I will not get out,

sell out,

be talked out,

or be pushed out.

I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable.

If my God needs me, I am there!

I am a soldier.  I am not a baby.

I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, picked up, or pepped up.

I am a soldier.

No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me.

I am a soldier.  I am not a wimp.

I am in place, saluting my King,

Obeying His orders,

praising His name,

and building His kingdom!

No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy,

Or give me handouts.

I do not need to be coddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to.

I am committed.

I cannot have my feelings hurt badly enough to turn me around.

I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside.

I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into this Army, I had nothing.

If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead.

I will win.

My God has, and will continue, to supply all of my needs.

I am more than a conqueror. 

I will always triumph.

I can do all things through Christ.

Devils cannot defeat me,

people cannot disillusion me,

Weather cannot weary me,

sickness cannot stop me.

Battles cannot beat me,

money cannot buy me.

Governments cannot silence me,

And hell cannot handle me.

I am a soldier.

Even death cannot destroy me.

For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield,

He will promote me to Captain and

Then allow me to rule with Him.

I am a soldier in God’s Army,

And I am marching to claim the victory.

I will not give up.

I will not turn around.

I am a soldier, marching heaven bound!

Here I stand!  Will you stand with me?

 We worship you, Lord!  We exalt you, Jesus!

A link back to this site is our only requirement. Please contact us for any commercial or other use. All e-mails, letters, and other correspondence become the property of Luke 17:3 Ministries, Inc. Due to the large volume of e-mails, we're sorry that we are unable to personally answer every one, but we do lift everyone who writes to us in prayer to the Lord.
The Lord specifically called Sister Renee to minister to Adult Children, not their parents, estranged siblings or friends, abusive or abused spouses, or victims of other types of abuse, although what we write here can often be meaningful for those folks as well. Because of this, our ministry and website have a narrow focus which we will not be changing. We simply can't cover everything. In addition, it is not our purpose to help you re-establish contact with someone who felt it was necessary to cut you off for the sake of their own well-being. We do not keep a list of resources for estranged parents or any other type of abuse and suggest if you are sincerely interested in making amends with an estranged relative, you do an internet search for a website or group that will be more relevant to you. If you cannot find a group or site that you can relate to, we suggest you start your own, and bless other people in your position as well as find support for your personal issues. 
For Adult Children and others as well, please understand that we cannot give you personal advice concerning your particular family relationships.  We are not therapists or lawyers, we usually do not have enough information to form an opinion, and time does not permit us to give enough thought to each person's individual situation to do it justice. If you need personal advice, we urge you to contact the appropriate professional, depending on the problem you have- your minister, therapist, attorney, police department, local domestic violence hotline, etc. In reading this site, you acknowledge that nothing you might read here qualifies as or substitutes for professional advice. Please note we cannot recommend or refer you to a counselor and we do not have a list of therapists or recovery groups in your area. The only Counselor we recommend is the Holy Ghost, and we encourage you to read the Bible and learn for yourself what the Lord says about the issues we write about.
Our articles are strictly our personal opinions and testimonies and are not intended to give or offer any advice. All who access this site do so with the understanding that we are NOT professional counselors and we strongly recommend that you discuss your individual situation with your pastor or therapist and pray for the Lord's guidance before acting on anything we write on this site. Unfortunately, the abuse we discuss is all too common, inflicted on countless victims by countless perpetrators. All names and identifying details in our articles have been changed to protect the innocent as well as the guilty. Any resemblance to a real person or persons whom you might know is strictly coincidental.
