I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Greetings -

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Early this a.m., during my devotions with our Lord, He gave me the title of this post.  He also gave me the following scriptures:

Genesis 7:16
And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in.  

Revelation 3:7, 8
And to the angel of the church in Philadlephia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

I know thy works: behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Later today I shared the above with a sister in Christ.  Then tonight I went to another blogger's site and noticed that she had content relative to the "door" matter.  It was after that, that our Lord told me that it was ripe to post this topic that He gave me early this a.m.  Further, He shared that someone was waiting for this post.  I have no clue who, but in obedience to our Lord, it is here.  It could be more than one person so I will express in plural.

Our Lord says:

"Children, nothing happens that is not on My radar.  I am fully aware of your questions, challenges, and fears.  I have not forgotten You.  Rejection does manifest in your lives.  I allow it because I have better for you.  My Word says in Hebrews 12:11, 'Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.'"

"My cash flow has not ceased.  When you imagine that you don't have enough, that is not Me that You believe because My Word assures you that I shall supply all of your needs according to My riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  My schedule prevails. 

"You fret about job security.  Be secure in Me.  Nothing can occur without My clearance.  Whatever I allow, I rule.  Remember that I have preeminence over all.  Any doors that I shut in your lives, it is because better ones shall open.  Your challenge is the wait.  Your challenge is the unknown.  Rest in the truth that I know, and expect You to walk by faith, not by sight. 

"People have forsaken you.  Count it all joy.  They have been removed for beneficial purposes.  Their departure does not subtract from your value.  Consider their absence an asset.  If I needed them there for you, their departure would have been prevented.  Am I not GOD?!  

"What is yours is reserved for you.  I won't allow anyone to have what is reserved for you.  It is yours.  Sow to My Spirit and witness My moves, and developments.   

"Press in to Me - press in to My Word - press in to My truth.  Cleave to My promises - draw nigh to Me and I will draw nigh to you.  I know that you are tempted to faint, and to accept an Ishmael rather than an Isaac.  Don't settle.  Press on for your "child of promise" - your Isaac. 

"Rest in my arms - let go of your anxieties - rest in Me, saith GOD."

The Acts 5:39
But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

I Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Philippians 4:11
..for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

You don't need e-readers to read e-books; they can also be read online.


  1. Oh Sandra! God certainly uses you as a profound mouthpiece! Thank you for being an obedient vessel!!! These lines really spoke to me, "What is yours is reserved for you. I won't allow anyone to have what is reserved for you. It is yours."

    You have encouraged me so much!!! Thank you!!!

  2. Hi Faith Imagined -

    You are certainly welcome.

    Glory to GOD that He manifests so superbly - without fail!

  3. The passage you posted on my April 13 post, and this post are all speaking life to me and feeding my spirit. It is really the word of confirmation that I need to hear, and to receive encouragement from.

    Thank you, dear Sandra.


  4. This post brought tears to my eyes, it blessed me beyond words. Thank you.

  5. Thank you, Sandra, for your uplifting words each day.

  6. Hi sister Sandra. Sister Lidj who commented above had shared your post which is very timely for me today. As I go through a huge battle, both literally and of course, spiritually, the words the Lord had given you had brought so much confirmation, assurance, encouragement and strength in relation to this obstacle on this road I'm walking on. I'm a Correctional Nurse by profession (by His will :))and those people in power want to end my career. Deep inside I know, that if this door is truly to close, it is not them closing it but the Lord. My only prayer is for me not to miss the Lord's calling whether He wants me to stay or not.
    Before coming here to read this anointed post, I was thinking of those lost people at work needing God's restoration in my prayers. How I pray for the door of their hearts to be opened so they can let Him in and allow Him to work in their hearts. God bless you sister. May the Lord continue to guide you and give you discernment. To Him be the glory forever. Because of Him, we are victorious!!!
    In Christ,

  7. I am so blessed with this Word God gave you. Especially about the part where He removes some people for His greater purposes. Sometimes I try so hard to make everything work and here it's God saying not to fret. We are pressing into God like never before! Happy Easter, my friend.


  8. Hi Sandra,

    Wow! What a powerful Word from the Lord. This really spoke to me in a mighty way. I've been praying and seeking a new job for more than a year. I've gone on a couple of interviews and have networked but no new job yet. I've literally been at my wits end looking for the perfect job opportunity. The Lord has told me that he is in control and has opened up doors for networking that no one can close and He will open up the door to the perfect job opportunity in his timing. All I have to do is trust and rely on him, stand on his promises and wait patiently. I'm not to settle for an Ishmael, but to wait for my Isaac. Amen! Your message was very timely. Thank you.

    And thanks for stopping by my two blogs and leaving messages. I plan on posting more photos from my trip to Baltimore by the weekend. Hope you will like those as well.


  9. Sandra,
    I read your anointed post last night...

    I gave Rosel the link to it because I was so sure the word was also for her!

    And now I'm back here to request permission to feature this blog entry on my blog place as a guest post.


  10. Amen Sandra, this is very encouraging, it is great to know that no one can take what is reserved for me. Thanks for sharing:)

  11. Greeetings -

    Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    @Crown of Beauty
    It is a pleasure to know that our Lord gave you confirmation.

    @Mining for Diamonds
    My heart moved...when I read how the post affected you. Glory to our Lord for knowing how to meet all of us where we are.

    You are certainly welcome.

    Our Lord revealed...that a lot of His people are going through...

  12. Hi Sandra,

    This post also spoke in huge volumes to me. I am attending a prophetic conference this week and a bit of one last week and there were words said over me that I have heard 2 times before. There is a release that I am waiting for, it hasn't happened yet but I know it will and this post reassured me.

    We are in a time of awakening and the people of God a waking up from a slumber they are stretching and yawing and Satan is baring his fangs. The horn is being blown and it is stirring a deep longing into the ones that belong to God or will belong to Him.

    Praise His Holy, Holy Name.


  13. Greetings -

    Thank you so much for visiting. You are certainly welcome here.

    You expressed, "Deep inside I know, that if this door is truly to close, it is not them closing it but the Lord."

    How true that is, precious lady of GOD - how true that is.

    Your ordeal is quite challenging. I have had workplace persecution and understand the challenges associated with it. I will have you in my prayers. Rest assured that whatever it is, it is NOT bigger THAN GOD!

    Glad you were blessed. Yes, Mary, I have had my share of toxic relationships. As our Lord's Word says in Psalm 34:19 - KJV, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all." And 2 Timothy 4:18 - KJV, "And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work,..."

    Glad the post spoke to you "in a mighty way."

    Our Lord will meet your needs in ways that are atypical...

    You are right, lady - don't settle for Ismael...

    You are certainly welcome. It was my pleasure to visit your blog.

    @Crown of Beauty
    Sure, you can post it as a guest piece on your blog.

    The more that our Lord can reach, the better...

    Glad you were encouraged. Glory to GOD for His reservation register.

  14. Hi Child of God -

    I believe with you that our Lord will give you the desires of your heart... We walk by faith, indeed.

    You stated, "We are in a time of awakening and the people of God a waking up from a slumber they are stretching and yawing and Satan is baring his fangs. The horn is being blown and it is stirring a deep longing into the ones that belong to God or will belong to Him."

    What you expressed is quite interesting. It witnessed to my spirit. Profound truth indeed.

    Thank you, precious lady of GOD.

  15. Thank you Sandra for the encouraging words; yes when we press into God's word with praise and worship we can transcend our circumstances and rest in him.

  16. This is a good word.

    At the first Passover the people were to partake of the Lamb with their hiking boots on and their hiking staff in their hands. The Spirit will blow us whenever and wherever He wills. We must hold the things of this world (including jobs and belongings) lightly.

  17. Sister Sandra - A hearty amen to every word!! I loved this post. It inspired and encouraged me tremendously. For me, the overarching theme was this - "My schedule prevails." Oh, hearty words indeed!

    The Master on the throne has shut us in - we are untouchable. And though the gates of hell shall come up against us, in the Lord we will prevail.


  18. Greetings -

    Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    You are certainly welcome.

    You expressed, "...we can transcend our circumstances and rest in him."

    I love how you expressed that, PMQ.

    You epxpressed, "The Spirit will blow us whenever and wherever He wills. We must hold the things of this world (including jobs and belongings) lightly."

    Excellent truth and admonition, Timothy. Thank you so much for that message!

    Glad you loved the post. Isn't it awesome how our Lord so superbly ministers to us!

    Yes, Sharon - it is His schedule that prevails.
    Our flesh would rather it be otherwise...but GOD reigns and rules!

    I love, in particular, your last paragraph!

    Glory Hallelujah!

  19. Thanks Sandra,
    My most favorite part that spoke to me with a PEACEful planting in my spirit was :

    ""What is yours is reserved for you. I won't allow anyone to have what is reserved for you. It is yours. "

    This helps me "wait" in Him for His given visions and dreams - to come alive with Him.

    Blessings, beautiful one
    Patrina <")>><

  20. Hi Patrina -

    Yes, how comforting to know that our Lord is our reservation SCHEDULER!

    I love that you expressed, " come alive with Him."

    A hearty Amen, Patrina - yes, a hearty Amen.

  21. AMEN - HE is in control although that sometimes seems to surprise us - it shouldn't but reminders are very good! Love you1
