Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Amazing Things Still Happen Today
Recently my daughter Judie and I attended a Glory
Conference with Joshua Mills, as he inspired us to seek Jesus and enter into
This can be done by
silently being with Jesus as you pray and read your Bible, but also as you sing
and praise the Lord with a Joyful Noise.
Keep Jesus first in your life, and allow the Holy Spirit to become real
to you in a "personal" way.
From the Bible, we consider
the life of Jesus as He ministered on earth and wondrous miracles happened as
he preached, healed the sick, and cast
On one occasion - - After
feeding a crowd of 5000, Jesus went to the mountain to pray, and the disciples
entered the boat to go to the other side leaving Jesus there.When a storm arose, Jesus came to them as he
walked on the water.They were afraid. .
. (of course) but at his command to not be fearful, they allowed him to get
into their boat.IMMEDIATELY they were
(transported) to the other side.The
people knew Jesus was not in the boat when the disciples left, so they asked
how did you get here Jesus?
Jesus called himself the
"son of man," because when he came to earth, he left ALL of his
"God powers." in heaven and became flesh on earth.Everything Jesus did on earth was by
listening to his Father God, and then moving in the anointing he received when
he was baptized by John the Baptist.Remember when the Holy Spirit descended on him in the form of a
dove?That began the anointing as he was
filled with the Holy Spirit - - - same as we can be filled with the Holy Spirit
when we accept Jesus into our life.
Amazing things happened to
Jesus as he walked with His FATHER GOD.At times the religious leaders tried to kill him as they were not
believers.Times of danger, guess what?Jesus passed through the crowd and seemed to
disappear.WOW, did that really happen
Remember Philip preaching to
the eunuch in the desert.After believing that Jesus is the Messiah, at the eunuch's
request, Philip baptized him, and IMMEDIATELY Philip was lifted up and appeared
in another city. (transported) - - WOW do things like this happen today?Not as often as they should, but they do.
Realizing that strange to us,
many things in the Bible are actually true, and we can expect similar things to

At the Glory conference, Rev Mills told a story about
himself and a valuable ring that had been given to him but sadly to say that during a stay at a
certain hotel, it was lost.The valuable ring
also had sentimental value because it has been passed down from family to
family.He was extremely sorrowful
about the missing ring.
One day in prayer as he cried
before the Lord, he asked for help in finding his ring and having it restored
to him.He was praising the Lord and the
presence of God was like a cloud heavy in his room.A vision began to appear before his eyes, and
he saw himself walking in a quiet neighborhood.One of the homes stood out to him and the walked up to the house and
opened the door.As he walked through
the home, he entered into a bedroom and noticed a tall dresser, on which sat
his missing ring.
God told him to reach out and
take his ring.He did as he was
instructed, and grabbed the ring in his left hand.Immediately the vision ended and he was once
again in his own bedroom - - - and he felt something solid in his hand.There it was his missing ring, that had been
stolen, but was now returned.(true

In life, the enemy has stolen
many things from us.Some through
ignorance, or neglect on our part, and some through NO fault of our own.Understand that God desires to bring back to
you things that the devil stole.Perhaps
it was your marriage, your job, your finances, your health, or your children
taken from you outside of your control.
God can and will bring you
peace to go forward regardless of the situation, but in many cases He desired to bring a restoration of things lost.
Believe God is for you and
not against you.What he has done in the
past, He will do today.Place your trust
in Jesus, and get as close to Him as you can.Know that you are His Child and as a Child of God, his DNA becomes a
part of you.God is Holy,He has character to keep His Word,He is healthy, He is rich, in that he needs
nothing because he has more than enough.
Walk with Jesus and you will never be disappointed.
