153 Consider mine affliction and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
154 Plead my cause and deliver me: quicken me 
according to thy word.
155  Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.

156  Great [1] are thy tender mercies, O Lord: quicken me according to thy judgments.

157  Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.

158  I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.

159  Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O Lord, according to thy lovingkindness.

160  Thy word [2] is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.


The Psalmist opens up with a divine plead.
In this pleading passage the key word is consider

The second key word is quicken me. God desire to Revive , preserve and restore us to Him.

The Word of the Lord came to me saying, I the Lord neither slumber nor sleep, .. Call on me and I will answer you.


His line is never busy. God does not have speed dial. or call waiting, His line is never busy. His Sovereignty allows him to work behind the scenes. 


Sometimes what you look at is not what it is that’s why you have to wait. If you don’t wait,  what seems to be real it’s just a camouflage.


Gods time is not our time. One day to God is as a thousand years and a thousand years is but one day. 


Psalm 27:14 King James 

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.


Dr Prophet Theresa Maxwell


Three points 
Delay is not denial
God has not forgotten you.
In the mist of silence,  greaters coming.
What you must consider
God neither slumber nor sleep, ... If you don’t mine waiting God will answer
God does not have call waiting, , His line is never busy. And God does not have speed dial. His Sovereignty allows him to work when he wants and how he wants for his time is not our time. One day to God is as a thousand years and a thousand years is but one day. Jeremiah 33:3 Call to me and I will answer

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

In conclusion  
God considered you when they stuck a crown of thorns on his head.
God considered you when he was nailed to the cross. 
God consider you when they whip and beat him all night long.
God Consider you when he was  pierce  in the side
God considers you when He asks Satan have you considered my servant. Job 1:3 
It wasn’t, the nails that, kept Him on the cross, ....
It was His undying love for drug addict,..homosexual fornicator, adulterous liars  and thief.  kept Him On that old rugged cross.
In closing
I declare and decree this day before you eat the bread of the body and drink the blood offering which represents the new covenant of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
Consider Him who knew no sin but became sin.
Consider Him who humbled himself and became obedient  - even to death on the cross!
Consider Him who restore your  broken relationship with God.

God silence comes back strong


If you have been follower of Christ very long, you have had periods where it seems God is nowhere to be found. We often call them periods of spiritual dryness. Sometimes I refer to it as being in a spiritual funk.
What should we do during the times of silence, before the miracles of God come through for us?
If you are like me, you can figure out how to celebrate a miracle. You don’t need much help doing that. The tough part of life is figuring out what to do during the years of silence… during the years when miracles are seemingly nowhere to be found.
What do we do during the spiritually dry periods of life when we don’t hear clearly the voice of God?
Here are 7 suggestions for those times:
Don’t ignore the silence – Some of the biggest moves God has made in my life have come after a period of spiritual dryness… when it seemed like God was doing nothing in my life. Stay very close to God and watch for Him to eventually display His power. He will in the fullness of time.

When God is silence

Elijah had been used of God to hold back rain from the people for over three years, because of their sins. Obviously, he was not well liked as a preacher. I can imagine the stress he experienced during those years.

Something strikes me, however, that seems to further complicate Elijah’s situation.

Not only is God’s silence biblical, it is also personal. How is that? God’s silence is personal because it can be the agent of our transformation. In Genesis 12, Abram (“great father”) was a pagan, he was seventy-five years old when God asked him to leave everything he knew to follow Him. God promised Abram, “I will make of you a great nation” (Genesis 12:2). For many Christians it is not difficult to identify with the experience of God’s silence. While it might not be the issue of infertility, you can probably point to a time in your life when you wondered if God had forgotten you.


Silence. Sometimes what causes us the most pain and confusion isn’t what God says to us but the fact that in the midst of difficulty he seems to say nothing at all.

Has God been silent in your life as you’ve been waiting for answers?

That’s how it was for Job. He wanted to hear from God. He wanted to understand why he was suffering. He wanted God to clear his name. “Let the Almighty answer me,” he pleaded (Job 31:35).



Consider 1 Kings 18:1:

“After a long time, in the third year, the word of the LORD came to Elijah: “Go and present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the land.”

According to a couple New Testament passages, this “After a long time” was actually three and a half years. The famine was three and a half years long. For three and a half years, the people apparently continued to sin, Elijah continued to hold on by faith, but God said nothing. God was apparently inactive… not speaking… even to His great servant Elijah during this time.

Have you ever been there? Has the silence of God in your life ever been eerily strong?

Imagine you had been faithfully serving… God is using you… you are in constant communication with Him… and then suddenly… everything is quiet. You have to wait.

The separation must have seemed unbearable. Elijah is not liked and unpopular. He’s an outcast from the people and the One he trusted most was seemingly absent.

God would soon do a miracle through Elijah… one he couldn’t even imagine… certainly not script, but during this period all Elijah could do was wait.

If you have been follower of Christ very long, you have had periods where it seems God is nowhere to be found. We often call them periods of spiritual dryness. Sometimes I refer to it as being in a spiritual funk.

What should we do during the times of silence, before the miracles of God come through for us?

If you are like me, you can figure out how to celebrate a miracle. You don’t need much help doing that. The tough part of life is figuring out what to do during the years of silence… during the years when miracles are seemingly nowhere to be found.

What do we do during the spiritually dry periods of life when we don’t hear clearly the voice of God?

Here are 7 suggestions for those times:

Don’t ignore the silence – Some of the biggest moves God has made in my life have come after a period of spiritual dryness… when it seemed like God was doing nothing in my life. Stay very close to God and watch for Him to eventually display His power. He will in the fullness of time.

Confront known sin in your life – This wasn’t the problem of silence for Elijah, but the problem for the Israelites was that they were chasing after other gods and living lives in total disobedience to God. Sin may not be the reason you don’t sense closeness to God right now, but if you have known sin in your life it will affect your intimacy with God.

Go back to what you know – Get back to the basics of the faith that saved you. You’ll do it 100s of times in your life, but you must remind yourselves of the basis of faith… which is the very character and promises of God. God is in control. He really is… even when it doesn’t seem that He is anywhere to be found.

Make a decision… Choose sides – You can’t adequately serve God and the world. (Consider Joshua 24:15.) Something happens in life, often sin, busyness, boredom, or a tragedy… but if we are normal, we have periods where we grow away from our close relationship with God. God hasn’t moved, but if you’ve shifted in your obedience, get back securely on the right side.

Trust More… Not less – Times of silence may be filled with fear, but ironically, these times require more faith. Times come in our spiritual life when our enthusiasm isn’t as real as when we began our walk with God. That’s not an indication to quit… it may be that God is using that time for something bigger than you could have imagined… but whatever is next will most likely require a deeper level of trust.

Listen and Watch Closely – Some day God is going to make His plans known to you. Don’t miss them. He may come to your personally, through His Word, circumstances, or another person. You’ll need to be in a position to know that God is moving. (Read THIS POST if you need help discerning God’s will.)

Get ready to receive – God will break the silence some day… and when He does it WILL be good. If you mope around in your sorrows, you’ll be less prepared to receive the good things to come. Not because of your circumstances, but because of your faith, clothe yourself in joy as you wait for God to bless you after the period of silence.

Are you in one of those periods of silence today? How do you handle these periods of time? 



Prayer for understanding


Turn with me to Psalm 119:153-160 King James Version (KJV)

153 Consider mine affliction and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.

according to thy word.
155  Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.

156  Great [1] are thy tender mercies, O Lord: quicken me according to thy judgments.

157  Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.

158  I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.

159  Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O Lord, according to thy lovingkindness.

Romans 11:5-6

Your eyes are the window to the soul.  Sometimes the eyes will deceive you when your mind's view point is distorted. 


However this happens when one indulge in tainted substances that changes the mindset to appear to see things not as they really appear. 


The substances that’s digested  makes the mind  delusional that is cause by stripping the emotion to neither hot nor cold but Lukewarm.
