Slay The Marriage Killers - The In-Laws

Marriage Killers. How do we slay them?Today, I want to talk about …The in-laws. Every marriage brings with it an extended family. My experience with in-laws was a good one. They weren’t intrusive. At the time I married Mike, he had lived on his own for years. He had a health relationship with his parents, and they lived in another state. Their involvement in our lives centered about holiday visits and trips to visit their place in the summer. And on occasion, a trip to the Santa Cruz where his parents and their friends and family would vacation every year.Marriages struggle when either spouse fails to become fully liberated from their parents.

The Wicked Marriage Killer

What is the Wicked Marriage Killer?Many years ago, my mother-in-law looked at my father-in-law and quoted me to him, “Just deal with it, Caitie.” I bet my mouth hung open. It became obvious that Carole, was teasing and poking back at her dear husband with words I’d said to my then, hmmmm I guess ten-year-old daughter. Read more →

You Are Making New Wine

Hey there SUM family, Tiffany here! We are on the verge of a major breakthrough. I believe that this is both individual and corporate for our SUM community and our families. Already we have seen a few wondrous accounts of spouses getting baptized into the faith! Hallelujah! Strongholds are breaking in our lives as well as our spouses. We are seeing addictions begin to cease. Affections returning in marriages. What a great time to be alive! I wanted to share something that God is stirring in my heart. During the fast and even recently, I am hearing the phrase "new wine." I am barely scratching the surface of where Holy Spirit is trying to take me but I wanted to share my heart because I feel it is important. When breakthrough is upon us, there is always a push back from the forces of darkness. Freedom, identity, purpose, birthright. These... Read more →

The Power of Receiving God's Love

Hi SUMites, Ann here! I've been praying about what to write this week after our wonderful communal fast. I'm sure you're still reflecting on it as I am. Anyway, a phrase has kept coming to me for today's post, and it's this: One of the most important things you can do, in your place of commissioning, is receive God's love. This phrase is one that I've been carrying around for a while now. It was spoken to me by a visiting pastor who I met briefly at a university student gathering organized by some campus missionaries. At this gathering, he went person by person round the room and spoke a blessing over each of us. There were at least thirty of us, so it was a labor of love to give such personalized prayers despite not knowing any of us. It took a couple of hours and we all listened... Read more →

It's DECLARATION DAY!! Hallelujah!!

Thursday, January 10, 2019 There is grace. If you didn’t quite make it, there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. So, start again and finish strong. And for the many who have continued steadfast, press in because this is a breakthrough day for everyone! Pray: I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. —Ephesians 3:16-19 Today is “revival day” and “divine reversal day.” In the...

Day Three Fasting & Prayer Prompt

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 Mid-week, and this is when fasting becomes difficult. What I want to tell you is that when you reach Friday and you remained in the fast, you will feel such a surge of accomplishment and pride in your perseverance. And the flip-side, you will be disappointed you didn’t make yourself finish strong because our next fast isn’t until September. White-knuckle your determination. And gang, I’m saying this to me specifically. I’m staying focused on the juicy hamburger I’m going to eat on Friday at sunset. *grin* Pray this: I know that you will welcome me into your house, for I am covered by your covenant of mercy and love. So I come to your sanctuary with deepest awe to bow in worship and adore you. Yahweh, lead me in the pathways of your pleasure just like you promised me you would, or else my enemies will...

Fasting Day One - Scripture Prayer Prompt

Prayer time challenge for this week. 1. Don’t touch or look at your cell phone in the morning prior to your prayer time. I believe this is directly from the Lord. Your early morning prayer is vital during this fast. Reading your phone before prayer will completely suck you into the cares of the world. It is difficult to leave the world once it gets going in your head. So, pray first. (first fruits) for an hour. Then read your phone. 2. Ask Jesus questions. Example: Jesus what do you want me to learn this year? Jesus, what are you teaching me right now? Jesus, what fruit of the Spirit to you want to develop in my life this year? Jesus, reveal more of yourself to me. Father, reveal your heart to me. Father, what are you doing today? Father, who can I love today with the love you give... Read more →

Fasting Expectations

SUM Nation 2019 is marching forward. And we, the Body of Christ, have tremendous assignments and moves of God in which we will participate. In December I received a great deal of revelation from the Lord about 2019 and 2020. I will likely share what Jesus told me after our fast. But today, I want to encourage you to plan to fast. The Community fast begins at sunrise, January 7th and end at sundown, January 11th. If at all possible, plan to fast from solid food for five days. Fasting from food is our Biblical model and Jesus modeled fasting. This next passage is our calling: 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” 26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and...
