This has been a remarkable prayer season. I've logged more than 50 hours in tongues since Patti Cake and I first started back on March 29. I prayed in the spirit two hours or more a day for 20 days leading up to my ordination, and now I'm back to one hour a day which is the norm.
The first week or so of the prayer season was rocky. But that just makes sense because we entered into focused, forceful prayer BECAUSE the enemy was messing with us. Since we broke through, I've had peace like a river. I don't even know what that means exactly. All I know is that I've been walking in a tremendous grace since the breakthrough and I love it. I know it won't last forever, but it's delicious, lemme tell 'ya.
One awesome thing that's transpired is I got some good revelation for weight loss. If you've ever struggled with your weight, you may be interested in this. So ... I hadn't been running like I have for the past 20 years. I practically quit which means I'm getting fat. I'm too short to be gettin' fat. There's no if, ands or buts about it. I look CAH and I don't like to shop so I need my clothes to fit.
I've been learning about how our spirits - which are direct connects to Yahweh - can do all kinda amazing things such as bring various types of healing, revelation and more. I told my spirit a couple weeks ago in passing, that I wasn't happy with this weight gain and I wanted participation in getting my weight under control. So Little Zari (is what I call her) started alerting me when I wanted to eat something. Normally when I'm hungry I have a taste for something specific that's fat and greasy good, but one day she said, "Protein." Nothing else, just, "Protein." I went and got some protein, it satisfied me and I felt good afterward. Not sluggish, didn't want to nap (that's a miracle in itself 'cause eating and then sleeping is a right nice combo!).
I was supes surprised because that never happened before - well, to be honest, I'd never been paying attention enough before or honored my spirit's voice for that type of information in the past. So I began to explore it. Of course, God already has right eating solutions for us but we have to be willing and disciplined to get with Him to receive the revelation. I was reminded of Dr. D'Adamo's blood type diet so I looked him up and reacquainted myself with what he recommended for me. Basically, my spirit was like, "Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!"
I first heard about Dr. D'Adamo a few years ago from my podmate, Ele. She's a smarty pants massage therapist in Philadelphia and is either fully schooled or getting there in nutrition. At the time I read his info and just filed it away because I was running and doing fine then. But now that I've put on some pounds that I no longer want, I have to do something. For real, for real, not for play-play.
This first week I gave up dairy and increased my protein, and man, I feel good. I'm not a baby cow, so there's no reason for me to be eating dairy anyway - you know that milk does a body good mess is all about money-making, right? But seriously, my body feels good, I'm sleeping good and I have more energy and fewer aches and pains. According to his diet I was supposed to give up dairy, wheat and gluten the first week, but I gotta ease into this if I wanna stick with it. I'm down two pounds. 😊
I'm not endorsing his diet or products to you (haven't bought any, yet), what I'm doing is making you aware that God has a plan for your weight loss and management and He can give you the revelation you need to be successful at losing extra weight. He can download that info into your spirit or simply bring it to the surface because your perfect weight plan is already encoded in your spiritual DNA.
So this makes me think of a couple points:
This has been a phenomenal season. It's harvest time for Patti and I, too. But, I'll have to write about that some other time. This is already too long and I'm not even done. Plus, it's after 2 a.m. and I have to get up in too short of a time, but I'm gonna write a bit more because I'm so fired up.
A couple more things. I was pondering the attacks the enemy hits single moms with yesterday. The poverty is just one part, but they really do love to make single moms slaves. Black single moms especially. I was looking at several I've walked with over the past few years, and there's a need for some revelation that'll destroy a deeply ingrained stronghold. Please release verbal agreement with me that God shine light on this and give me revelation if it's an area He wants me to address. There's definitely something there, but it may not be my problem to solve. As I continue to chew on this, I'll keep you updated here or on ZM7A.
Lastly, I received two mentoring requests last week to battle the occult. Whew ... not for the faint of heart, that's for sure. But, more importantly, I'm glad these folks have a desire to be set free and that God has equipped me with a deliverance arsenal that's at the ready. Please release a verbal agreement that God release to me light, revelation, wisdom and authority that causes major damage to the enemy who's been devouring these families and delivers them into the freedom He intends for them in this season of life.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name and authority!
P.S. God is doing something with me and The U.K. My products have taken a dip in sales in the U.S. but they're thriving in Europe. Methinks seeds are being planted for future endeavors. We'll see.
