B I was reading in Exodus the last few days when the Lord pointed this Gem out to me and then gave me great understanding in what He wanted us all to know..

Exodus 34:1
Then the Lord told Moses, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones. I will write on them the same words that were on the tablets you smashed.

This scripture is referring to the stone tablets that the 10 Commandments were written on. Moses worked tirelessly writing and chiseling the words on to these granite tablets only to go down the mountain and find that the Israelites had grown tired of waiting for him and decided to create their own God to worship there by melting down all their gold and creating a golden calf.

Moses was outraged that after all the Lord had done for them and all the miraculous events that surrounded them and they would still turn to worship a false God.

In his anger at this audacious realization, Moses hurled the stone tablets smashing them to the ground. 

But in reading the scripture above and reading the passages before and after.. What stood out to me is that the Lord asked him to chisel out two more tablets but then he said "I"   Yes GOD would write the same words that were on the tablets that Moses had smashed.

GOD WOULD RESTORE WHAT WAS BROKEN .. Even though it was broken in anger God still expedited the restoration, he did not make Moses labor and rewrite all of the Commandments himself. God stepped in and he wrote it. God took pity on Moses and all the hard work that he had put into this project. There was such mercy and kindness in God's restoration process.
The restoring would come quickly as I could imagine that God would supernaturally write 
These commandments so swiftly and effortlessly.

I can imagine Moses was watching in complete awe and relief.

I look at how God overlooked the humanity of Moses and forgave him for his anger..

God understands us, he knows we are human he knows our flaws and our weaknesses and he is so quick to forgive us all of our iniquities, but what I love is that God goes one step further and he personally restores us...hallelujah we serve such a good God!

I am reminded of the scripture in Ephesians 3:20
God will do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or think..

God's restoration of the tablets for Moses was his exceeding abundance of kindness mercy and love towards him. 
It was God's great understanding at how Moses must've felt. He knew Mose's heart, he knew Moses was a man of God and he also knew and understood why Moses would be so angry... God understands ALL that we go through.

I imagine Moses was walking back up that mountain shamefully mortified; not only at what had taken place with the Israelites ..but now he was to face God on the issues of how he had acted in such anger. I'm also quite positive, he was not looking forward to the grueling carving of recreating the Commandments.

God so graciously knew what he was thinking he knew he was tired angry and weary.

The Scripture says do not grow weary in well doing...

God will always restore! He will always give us his exceeding abundance he will give us beauty for ashes.. we serve a good God he sees all of the injustices.. he knows what's happened to you and he knows why. We serve a just God and he settles and solves the cases of his people.

Heavenly Father,
I ask you to restore to the overflow all that the enemy has tried to steal from your people today I thank you for your love, mercy, forgiveness, kindness and abundant restoration. All glory be yours in all things.. you are a good good Father!! in Jesus name

Please share these devotions and help spread the good news today

There  is a great awakening coming. There is an urgency that I feel led to write about..
We can't back down.. People are being greatly deceived! Suddenly everything is offensive.. So we shrink back.. We listen to the enemies new buzzword and we keep quiet.. "We certainly do not want to offend! 

What does God want from us and for us? 

God wants his people to have times of refreshing this is a new day, it's a year of restoration. It is time for God's people to flourish and to thrive in all areas of their lives,but moreover God wants you to thrive in your purpose.. Your purpose in serving the kingdom of God as an end time harvester. There is a great commission for us all; there are so many people being deceived there so many people that need to know the truth. The enemy prowls around like a thief in the night deceiving souls through the temptation of sin and sheer complacency.  We're so busy trying to not rock the boat, we don't want to offend anyone, we stay out of it and we keep to ourselves..we don't want to interfere's all none of our business...
Does this sound familiar?  Or maybe it's more like.. I'm going to keep quiet I don't want those people to think I'm weird..

 What other people say about you is none of your business!! 

 Are we not at times being double minded? 

If you A blood bought believer of Jesus Christ then you have a job to do!  But first ask yourself these tough questions?

Are you just playing it safe? Do you really know the truth? Do you know where you'd go if you were to die tomorrow? Do you think your time in church on Sunday's makes you a "Christian"?  Are you really truly saved?  Do you even know what real salvation means? Are you attending a Spirit filled church?  Are there alter calls inviting you to give your whole heart to Jesus; to give your life and soul over to be born again in the name of Jesus? I for one do not want to leave anything to chance there is only one way..

The Bible is very clear that Jesus is the only way to spend eternity in heaven with our Father and  creator! 

John 3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Do not be deceived the Bible says in the end times even Christians will fall away through deception and lack of knowledge we must believe God at his word!
Do not waver.. THERE IS NO TIME!

Many people think they don't want to be saved because they don't want to play by the rules of the Bible( Gods Word) and that they'll just call on Jesus on their death bed ...there's only one problem with that theory, you don't know when you're going to spend your last day on earth.

When we check out from this planet what's going to be in your shopping cart at the checkout point? You will have to give an account for all those things.. There's not going to be a chance to put the all the items back that should not be in your cart. When we check out,  we must pay.. yes there will be a price to pay! 

Are you going to have unforgiveness in your cart, drug addiction, pornography, adultery, sex outside of marriage? Or maybe you just have a cart full of wrongly thinking you were just a good person and that's good enough even though you did not take the time to know Jesus..

The Bible says that God will then say that he did not know you.. this statement gives me chills!

Luke 13:27
"But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!'

I want Jesus to point straight at me and say "Hey there she is, there's my girl,? I know her!" That is what I pray for us all!  Why leave this to chance?  This is urgent ...if you have not given your life over to Jesus, Do it now!

 Call on the name of Jesus and you shall be saved give your whole heart to Him now and live out your purpose in him!
Life is too short to get this wrong, make a decision today.. you are loved! You are so dearly loved by your Father and Creator. and he's been waiting for you.. he longs to have a  close personal relationship with you ..what do you have to lose? What's in your cart? 

Be a true disciple!! Do not be deceived!

True and False Disciples

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

The Wise and Foolish Builders

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practiceis like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.

Romans 10:13

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Galatians 6:7-8 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.   

Proverbs 12:22 - Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.

Proverbs 10:9 - He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.

Psalms 52:2 - Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Galatians 5:16-26 - [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.    

James 1:22 - But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Testify! You are an Overcomer.. By Nina Keegan


 Why do people suffer so greatly..? 

Does our suffering serve a purpose that can actually be beneficial..?

 Our brokenness chases us down to find out who we really are.. 
Our lives are not found in the darkness, that's not who we are or where we find ourselves.. But true Light and Life are found after having come through the darkness by God's extensive hand of sweet, merciful, grace and testifying of His faithfulness while we were yet in the pit of despair.
Even there.. God is closer.. He is nearer than our very breath.

Romans 8:28 says that God turns ALL things around for the good..
If we did not ever experience the difficulties of life, how then can we sufficiently appreciate the good?  If we do not ever experience failures how do we fully appreciate success? 
We must take the good with the bad and use it all as a learning tool.. 

Learn what there is to learn in the valleys.. Learn that God is so faithful.. He can make a way.. He can make rivers in a dessert..

Isaiah 43:19
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

The Bible says many are the afflictions of the righteous BUT GOD WILL DELIVER US THROUGH THEM ALL! 
Psalm 34:19

There is an old song that has a lyric that says ..I get knocked down, but I get up again...

YES WE DO GET KNOCKED DOWN.. we get hurt, angry, confused.. 
But those are not the times of our lives that define us.. they are actually stories of Hope and ultimately they are our life stories and testimonies that will cultivate a harvest of blessings.  WE WILL GET UP AGAIN.. with JESUS, we can and will do all things! 
Count it all joy the scripture tells us..
James 1:2
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,

Where do we draw our faith from if not from the deep well of despair?
Our trials cause us to look very closely at ourselves in the mirror so to speak and see Jesus staring right back at us reflecting His abundant light with His nailed scarred palms open wide in loving acceptance... Pure grace.. 

When hurts, turmoil and pain stare us in the face.. It also stares down the face of Jesus..

The CROSS... The cross stands before us.. The blood of Jesus fights for us.. rescues, redeems, vindicates, resuscitates, nourishes, heals, protects, restores, and washes away forever our sins of bondage and removes the shekels that bind us. 

Your story matters.. Testify! 
Let's glorify God in all things..
Tell your story of God's unfailing love and faithfulness..

We are overcomers through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony...
Speak up!! Declare your victory! Speak life into your circumstance
You are more than a conqueror in Christ!!

God bless you all

John 16:33
"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."

Romans 8:37
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

1 John 2:13
I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.

1 John 4:4
You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

1 John 5:5
Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Revelation 2:7
'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.'

Take Authority by Nina Keegan


We can renew our minds  daily to be like Christ, to believe Him! 
Who's word do we believe? This must be continually asked so we can immediately take every thought captive! We get to choose daily what we will accept or deny.. 

God's power to heal, bless, restore, and provide is not changed or diminished by our circumstances.. When faced with a need that has already been paid for on the cross; we have an immediate choice to make..
Whose Word will we believe.. The enemies or Gods..? 

Do not utter words of defeat but let every word that comes from your mouth be The written Word of God..

Faith comes by hearing  and hearing by the the Word of God! 

We are victorious in Him !!

We have complete dominion over the enemy.. We have the mind of Christ.. We can tap into this gift and through the knowledge of the Word and knowing how to use it as our supernatural offensive weapon 
We can defeat the enemy and forbid him to trespass on our lives.

Take authority!! Learn the Word for yourself, ready your feet for battle and fight the good fight of faith! We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength! 

God bless you all

Mark 11:22-24 
And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Proverbs 18:21 
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Matthew 21:22 
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

2 Corinthians 4:13
Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak,

Isaiah 55:11 
So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

2 Corinthians 4:18 
As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Matthew 12:34-36 
You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak,

Are You Stuck In A Rut? By Nina Keegan


This morning the Lord was giving me a nudge to read Proverbs. He specifically said 16, so as I began reading I realized what seems to be on God's mind concerning his people today.
 It says in 16:1 that we can make our own plans but it's the Lord that gives us the right answer
2 people may be pure in their own eyes but the Lord examines their motives... That's where I came to the wow moment..

Do we really ever take our motives into consideration for why we do things,why we seek things, why we want certain things, what really drives us? What's really behind it all? 

We may think that we are doing the right things for the Lord,  that we are pure hearted before Him, but what are our real motives?
People can rationalize anything if they have no standards for judging right from wrong, we can always try to prove that we are right and argue our point of view, but before putting any action into place we must ask ourselves three very important questions:

1. Is this plan in keeping with God's truth?
2. Will my plan work out under real life conditions?
3. Is my attitude concerning my plan pleasing to God?

Proverbs 16:3 goes on to say that we must commit our actions and plans to the Lord and then they will succeed. We
can lay the groundwork, we can come up with a good plan and if it is in harmony with God's will, and if we have sought FIRST, God's wise counsel,  if we have asked for His wisdom concerning our circumstance, then yes our plans will indeed succeed!


Gods Word cannot fail and He cannot go back on His Word! 

Stand on His Word, Gods written Word on how to succeed!! It is tried and true and will not return void! 

There are different ways that we can fail to commit whatever we do to the Lord, some people commit halfheartedly or superficially, they say that the project is being done for the Lord,  but in reality they are simply doing it for themselves or the benefit of self gratification. Others give God just temporary Control of their interests then they tend to take it back the moment things get rough or the moment it doesn't go exactly how they expected it to. They jump ship and blame God.. When just maybe, the timing was not quite right.. How many people throw in the towel just a bit too soon and miss the blessing?...

WE NEED TO STICK TO IT" STAY THE COURSE.. Do not veer.. Or stray.. That's when the going gets tough! There's always PEACE ON GODS PATH! 
Again seek God first and daily, ask Him to put you in His plan and surrender the day and all it's tasks to Him! 

Then,  there are those who have a brilliant idea but put forth no effort of their own whatsoever and expect God to do it all. 
God is not a fairy godmother with a magic wand, He expects us to lean on him but He also expects us to step out in faith and to let the hand of God guide us through as we trust Him each step of the way.

We must find the balance,  step out and do it afraid because once again we will succeed if we have committed it to the Lord!

We can trust God as if everything depended on him while simultaneously working as if everything depended on us. DO ALL YOU CAN AND GOD DOES ALL YOU CANNOT!

to summarize,
 proverbs 16:9
We can make our plans but the Lord determines our steps!

proverbs 16:33
33 we may throw the dice but the Lord determines how they fall.

I encourage you all to read proverb16..go live on purpose For God! 
God bless you

Proverbs16 New Living Translation (NLT)

16 We can make our own plans,
    but the Lord gives the right answer.
2 People may be pure in their own eyes,
    but the Lord examines their motives.
3 Commit your actions to the Lord,
    and your plans will succeed.
4 The Lord has made everything for his own purposes,
    even the wicked for a day of disaster.
5 The Lord detests the proud;
    they will surely be punished.
6 Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin.
    By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil.
7 When people’s lives please the Lord,
    even their enemies are at peace with them.
8 Better to have little, with godliness,
    than to be rich and dishonest.
9 We can make our plans,
    but the Lord determines our steps.
10 The king speaks with divine wisdom;
    he must never judge unfairly.
11 The Lord demands accurate scales and balances;
    he sets the standards for fairness.
12 A king detests wrongdoing,
    for his rule is built on justice.
13 The king is pleased with words from righteous lips;
    he loves those who speak honestly.
14 The anger of the king is a deadly threat;
    the wise will try to appease it.
15 When the king smiles, there is life;
    his favor refreshes like a spring rain.
16 How much better to get wisdom than gold,
    and good judgment than silver!
17 The path of the virtuous leads away from evil;
    whoever follows that path is safe.
18 Pride goes before destruction,
    and haughtiness before a fall.
19 Better to live humbly with the poor
    than to share plunder with the proud.
20 Those who listen to instruction will prosper;
    those who trust the Lord will be joyful.
21 The wise are known for their understanding,
    and pleasant words are persuasive.
22 Discretion is a life-giving fountain to those who possess it,
    but discipline is wasted on fools.
23 From a wise mind comes wise speech;
    the words of the wise are persuasive.
24 Kind words are like honey—
    sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
25 There is a path before each person that seems right,
    but it ends in death.
26 It is good for workers to have an appetite;
    an empty stomach drives them on.
27 Scoundrels create trouble;
    their words are a destructive blaze.
28 A troublemaker plants seeds of strife;
    gossip separates the best of friends.
29 Violent people mislead their companions,
    leading them down a harmful path.
30 With narrowed eyes, people plot evil;
    with a smirk, they plan their mischief.
31 Gray hair is a crown of glory;
    it is gained by living a godly life.
32 Better to be patient than powerful;
    better to have self-control than to conquer a city.
33 we may throw the dice but the Lord determines how they fall.

Bold As A Lion by Nina Keegan

Step out and do it afraid...WHAT IS GOD STIRRING IN YOUR HEART..? Have no fear, God will not ask you to do something that He has not already equipped you to do, even if you do not recognize those qualifications in yourself just yet, rest assured with God as your constant supply source you will always be well able to do all He asks and accomplish the tasks He anoints you to do. 
 Know that He will take care of all the seemingly impossible details of your God given mission. No matter what it looks like.. It's not too hard for God! 
God is simply asking for your Faith in Him.. blind faith, because faith is in what we cannot see. TRUST GOD! Take Him by his hand, let him lead you and guide you into your future, into your divine purpose in him. Be bold! What have you been putting off?  Are you deeming yourself unworthy or unqualified?  David was a mere shepherd boy that became a great King.. HE WAS BOLD AND PUT HIS GOD UP AGAINST THE BIGGEST GIANT IN THE LAND AND TOGETHER THEY DEFEATED HIM!
 God can do what men cannot and He can supernaturally open doors that you are to walk straight through with uncompromising faith.. Take that first step!! God's waiting!

The Bible says to Have no fear of man... 
We are called to be as courageous as Lions for The Lord and have no fear of man...
We are new creations in Christ, we are set free, our chains are gone... Lord we are your humble servants, we are ready... We chose you ..we said YES to your great commission!
God is for you so who would dare be against you.. Be bold for The Lord..! 
Do not back down!! What others think of you is none of your business ...we only need to be concerned with what God thinks of us..Keep your mind steadfast on the things above.. Do not be deceived.. Jesus is the only way!!
John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Proverbs 29:25

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.
But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. 1 Peter 3:14 NLT

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3 NIV

Acts 4:29
"And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence,

preaching the kingdom of God and teaching concerning the Lord Jesus Christ with all openness, unhindered.

GOD BLESS PARIS.. By Nina Keegan

GOD BLESS PARIS.. RESTORE, HEAL AND COMFORT THE PEOPLE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY.. This morning I want us all to take a moment and pray for God to bless comfort and restore peace to the beautiful city of Paris.. I have  been very blessed to have visited this city several times.. My heart hurts for these lovely people.

Many many people are dealing with the tragic news of the death of their loved ones today. It's such a reminder of 911.. People going about their normal life.. Then so needlessly and suddenly.. So many innocent families are permanently changed forever.

No matter what, we shall not fear, FEAR NOT, the Bible says this 365 times.. That is one for every day! 
We must understand and know the authority we have in Christ and seek Him daily for protection, safety, wisdom and strength . We as Christians are a vast number.. The Bible says where 2 or more are gathered in agreement that mountains can become level plains. 
I am asking for each one of us to pray just a few minutes each day for Gods protection for this nation and for the world.  These prayers can move mountains and restore peace. 





Our country was founded on GOD.. One nation under GOD
IN GOD WE TRUST.. Is on every penny we have!!

Lord have mercy on us as a nation ,as a world!
 FORGIVE us our sins Lord as we turn our lives back to you in complete surrender. We ask Lord that your hand of protection would be on us.
We thank you and praise you Lord that a thousand could fall at our left side, 10,000 at our right side but it will not come near us ...(ps 91)
we thank you for your Psalm 91 protection to be over us, our land,our government, our leadership, our schools our homes, and families. We earnestly invite you back Lord! We seek you like never before to advance your kingdom and to protect us and lead us to a victory in you over evil. We overcome evil with good and we thank you Lord that your goodness and your light would be evident in all of us as we spread the gospel and the overcoming word of Jesus Christ!
We love you and praise you Father!
In Jesus holy name we pray!

Psalm 91
1Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
