Never feel guilty for detaching yourself from toxic people be it family, friend, or foe. The Bible declares that as far as it depends on you to live in peace with others. Realistically, we know that peace is not always reciprocated as there are many who love strife and division.
So, how do we as Christians deal with difficult family members, friends, or foes? I'm about to help free some of you who have been struggling with a guilt trip for a long time. Humility is not stupidity. Matthew 10:13-14 says, "If the house is worthy, give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace. Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet."
Even as a Christian, you cannot help everybody. Not everybody wants to be helped. Not everyone desires peace even if you do. Some people are comfortable right where they are. Some people are dysfunctional because they choose to be. Even when you offer truth and the tools, the peace, the love, and forgiveness, they will still somehow blame you for their mishaps.
Hurting people hurt people and such would rather hold to their dirty smelly security blanket like Linus who always fell apart every time it was taken from him. Unfortunately, some people will die with their emotional disabilities, their dysfunction, and their disorders, and not because they are helpless, but because they (((refuse))) the help offered.
Learn to let people go. Remember, letting does not mean giving up (I cannot stress this enough). It simply means you have chosen to move on with your life and close the door to the drama and distress they steadily bring into your life. Some people are addicted to their past, their pain, and their problem like a drug addict. If you really love people, you will sincerely pray for them with hopes that one day they will open their hearts to Jesus and receive the healing and deliverance they so desperately need. You cannot change people; only GOD can.
Until then, it is okay to continue to love the unlovable, mean, and miserable people from a distance. You can pray for them as the Holy Spirit leads but you cannot allow yourself to be swept under the currents of their emotional hullabaloo. It is dangerous and even professional lifeguards can drown too.
You've got to keep it moving. This may be a hard pill to swallow, but swallow it anyways because it is the truth. Please remember that the same Sword of the Spirit that heals on one side will cut on the other. ~Narda Goodson, 2016 Daily Doses of Gospel PiLLs

Ever wanted to get somewhere but couldn't? Needed to help yourself but you just couldn't raise yourself from your situation? So was the condition of the man sick with the palsy in Mark 2:3.
His condition had him bound, tied up, #feeble, and crippled. He was too weak and unable to move on his own. Yet, he was a son.
When we #face seasons that are #fearful and when our faith grows weary, GOD will send in #four #folks #full of #faith to help you. There exist God #fearing #friends who will climb up difficult situations, cut out roofs, and tear holes through walls in sweat and faith in order to help carry you up and drop you down into the presence of the One who can.
Whatever has you paralyzed today will soon be under your #feet. The LORD will not #fail you. You will soon take up your bed to walk again! Keep your eyes on Jesus! ~2017 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel PiLLs
Scriptures to Meditate on:
Mark 2:1-12 - 1A few days later, Jesus went back to Capernaum. And when the people heard He was home, 2they gathered in such large numbers that there was no more room, not even outside the door, as Jesus spoke the word to them.
3Then a paralytic was brought to Him, carried by four men. 4Since they were unable to get to Jesus through the crowd, they uncovered the roof above Him, made an opening, and lowered the paralytic on his mat.
5When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
6But some of the scribes were sitting there and contemplating in their hearts, 7“Why does this man speak like this? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
8At once Jesus knew in His spirit that they were considering this within themselves. “Why do you question these things in your hearts?” He asked. 9“Which is easier: to say to a paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, pick up your mat, and walk’? 10But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins...” He said to the paralytic, 11“I tell you, get up, pick up your mat, and go home.”
12And immediately the man got up, picked up his mat, and walked out in front of them all. As a result, everyone was amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”

When they want you to keep it "nice". No #Correction. No rebuke. Nothing but sweet "nothings" that won't #Challenge you, #Convict you or #Change you. Guess what? I'm not helping you if I water down the truth. You'll be #Cute but #Careless. #Conditioned but not #Conformed. Don't you know that before you can receive GOD 's direction to where He's leading you, you'll need His #Correction? I'm not here to tickle anybody's ears. I know my #Commission, and I understand my #Calling. I'm not seeking the #Committee's approval. I'm on a Kingdom assignment that has already been approved by the #Counsel of the Holy Ghost. Either you flow, or you go.
Let me encourage those of you who are a voice on the front line of standing #Critics. Open your mouth, and GOD will fill it. Open your mouth and speak what "thus saith the LORD!" You may not be #Celebrated, but your #Commitment to the One who #Called you must supersede any and all thoughts, opinions, imaginations and all who #Contradict and oppose the #Cross. You are a #Carrier of Jesus' Light. Your life is a #Conduit by which He will reach the #Castaway. For His Word in your mouth will be like a fire lit #Canon set loose to set the #Captives free.
As He told Jeremiah in #Chapter 1, so say I to you. Be of good #Courage! "For even when they #Conspire, #Convene, and #Calibrate against you, I the LORD will #Cover you under the shadow of My wings. For the enemy is a #Cannibal. But I have #Capsuled your life in my Blood, and you will walk in the midst of the #Crooked, even those with a #Crocodile-like spirit, whose #Campfires are filled with the #Carcasses of those they have #Chewed with their tongues and #Crushed with their teeth. But I will use you as a #Candle's lit in the midst of gross darkness, and like Harriet Tubman, you will lead #Caravans of souls out of the pits of sin. You will go into the enemy's #Camp and lead them out. For I am the LORD of Hosts, and it is I, that goes before you. I the LORD have spoken it." May the LORD bless this Word and may it minister to wherever He is sending it. In Jesus' Name. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to His people. ~Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel "PiLLs". Copyright 2016. All Rights Reserved.

#Peter wasn't as bold as he #proclaimed when it came to facing the #public. No way was he #prepared for the public ridicule and #persecution he saw Jesus suffering. His human frailty and weakness got the best of him, and for fear of losing his own life, Peter hides behind the mask of #pretense to deny the One who loved him. I love that GOD used a failing Peter to become one of the #pillars of the early church. He didn't use someone who had it all #perfectly together. He used someone who was still willing to #pursue His heart and #plan even after the fall because He loved him. GOD's love is great. If you've fallen down seven, get up eight. ~2017 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel "PiLLs"
Scriptures to Meditate on:
Luke 22:55-62 55 - And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them. 56 Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, “This man also was with him.” 57 But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know him.” 58 And a little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not.” 59 And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, “Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.” 60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.” 62 And he went out and wept bitterly.
Proverbs 24:16 - Though a righteous man falls seven times, he will get up, but the wicked will stumble into ruin.

He That Has An Ear Let Him Hear What The Spirit Is Saying To His People:
What are you doing to help others cross over? You may be the oil in the ship or the wheels on the vehicle. You may be the windshield wipers to clear the rain so they can see better. You may be the cushion in the automobile that provides comfort to weary travelers. You may be the muffler that filters out the toxins. You may be the air conditioner to keep them cool or the heater to keep them warm. You may be the shell of the car that helps protect it from outside elements. For goodness sake, you may be the spark plug or the battery to help charge the mission. You may be the headlights to help light the way or the engine to power it. Whatever role you play is vital.
I see so much selfishness in the body of Christ today. It is a "selfie" type spirit. An "all about me", "see me" mentality. That's why there are many churches today getting old but not growing. They have eyes but no ears; they have feet but no arms. They have a mouth but no sound! The arm cannot say to the feet, I don't need you.
Moses asked GOD what he should do "for the people" and the LORD replied "Stretch out your hand and the sons of Israel shall go through" (Ex.14:15-16). It was a corporate move. Don't you know that when you stretch out what's in your hand, it's not only for the people but for you too! Moses wasn't going anywhere either until He turned over what he had in his hand to be used by GOD.
I prophesy and declare a Holy Ghost reconnection in the name of Jesus. I speak to dead and dry bones and say LIVE AGAIN. I call bone to his bone; joint to his joint; sinew to his sinew. For the body of Christ must be connected to move as one unit; one heart; one rhythm; one beat. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is speaking to His people. ~2016 Narda Goodson
Scriptures to Meditate on: Ezekiel 37:4-6 (Read the entire Chapter)
Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. 5Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Be wise and don't just cast your seed ANYWHERE. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you where to sow! Until you learn to sow the seed in your hands, until you learn to freely give away the gift in your hand, until you release the power that GOD has placed in your hands to help someone else cross over, don't expect the greater harvest to come. Moses asked GOD what he should do "for the people" and the LORD replied "Stretch out your hand and the sons of Israel shall go through" (Ex.14:15-16). What you have is NOT FOR YOU but FOR OTHERS! He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is speaking unto His people. ~2016 Narda Goodson

15Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward. 16"As for you, lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the sons of Israel shall go through the midst of the sea on dry land.

The Ministry of the Mulberry Trees:
Listening for the sound in the mulberry trees. For this next dimension GOD is about to launch some of you, it's going to require your spiritual antennae to be fine tuned and pointed in His direction. He IS NOT going to do like how it's been done in times past. You must listen for the sound atop the mulberry trees. ~2016 Narda Goodson

Deborah in the book of Judges didn't walk alone. She was not only a prophetess but a judge and one of Israel's great leaders who with Barak led the armies of Israel into war against Sisera. Deborah was the fourth judge to rule after the death of Joshua. Imagine that - a woman! To all my 21st century Deborah's amongst the Baraks, do not fear, for there is a host of an army that the LORD will send to you that is far greater than those against you. The LORD is fixing to shut down your oppressors.

As I was in the kitchen just now making a hot cup of coffee, I saw in vision a caterpillar going through the transformation of metamorphosis. This isn't the first time the Holy Spirit has shown me this visual as it is usually followed by a prophetic utterance and/or lesson. But as I watched the cocoon dispensed upside down, I heard the Spirit of the LORD say, "While the caterpillar is transforming inside the cocoon, much activity is taking place. His body is breaking as he is taking on a new one. But before he can break free from the walls tightly surrounding him and before he can bring his entire body out, his head has to crack through the hard shell first. Once his head is out, he is able to bring the rest of his body out".
Hear what the Spirit of the LORD is saying to the pastors. "Until you allow me to break you through that hard shell of tradition and old way, you will not be able to bring the people out and into the next dimension. For the head is the first to thrust through. Until you break through the walls and barriers of tradition in your personal life like I've asked you to, you will not see the breakthrough in your ministries. You will not take the people where you have not gone and/or won't go. Whatever is on the head flows to the body". He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.

Father, I thank you for all the Kingdom brothers, the men that You have raised to be a blessing in my life and in the life of my husband. Because when those who could have and should have but didn't, you've sent men from the east, west, north, and south who aren't afraid to sail uncharted waters; Kingdom-minded kings who aren't worry and tied up in gender and tradition but LOOSED MEN filled with the Holy Ghost and power. Men who are making their mark on earth and being a covering to their wives, sisters, and daughters the way You intended. Yes, GOD! Thank You for these that you have sent who unbeknownst to me, You have touched to move, flow, and function like the three wise men, who not only cover us in their love and prayers, but come to EMPOWER with their resources because they understand that TOGETHER WE'RE BETTER! JESUS, YOU NEVER FAIL! People of GOD, leave those stagnant pools and ponds of dead fish and connect with people who make your baby JUMP! Leave your net and follow Jesus! He that has an ear let him hear. ~2016 Narda Goodson

He That Has An Ear Let Him Hear What The Spirit Is Saying to His People:
There is a strong appetite for prophetic words today. It is so strong that people are running after and paying for it.
A true prophetic word will always testify of Jesus, point to Jesus, and speak of Jesus (John 15:26). Sadly, many lazy, slothful, and disobedient believers are being deceived by those who have placed price tags on their prophetic words. These have made merchants out of the very ones that would hear from the LORD, if they only took the time to seek Him with all their hearts, soul, and might. Instead, they have settled to drink from fountains brewed in kitchens of witchery and spirits of divination and feast on meals served from platters of psychics not prophets. They are so spiritually desensitized that they cannot even tell the difference.
We are living in perilous times my Kingdom siblings. We must learn to eat the Word and seek the LORD daily if we ought to have any spiritual discernment, insight, and leverage against the principalities and powers of the air; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. Failure to do so will find you sleeping and seeking warmth by strange fires. Awaken, Zion, awake!
~2016 Narda Goodson
Scriptures to Meditate on: Acts 16:16-18
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 16And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 17The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. 18And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

The enemy is not light but has the ability to transform, disguise, and masquerade into an angel of light. When we earnestly heed to living sober and walking vigilantly, we will begin to discern by the Spirit of GOD how he strategically operates to deceive people, overtake cities, and infiltrate territory both spiritually and physically, individually and collectively. How did Samson, a mighty man used by GOD, fall into a trap?
Learn and Discern:
1) The Gate of the Bait:
The enemy is going to set the bait according to the bite!
Do not love the world neither flirt with her. She will ensnare your soul and drive a dagger through your heart. You play with fire, you will get burn. Proverbs 6:27-28 - Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
2) The Gate of Deception:
Sin will make you comfortable enough to make you lay down like a dog and sleep. Judges 16:19 - She made him sleep on her knees. Sin will caress and massage you into a stupor! There is a way that seems right to a man but the end thereof is death (Proverbs 14:12).
3) The Gate of Compromise:
The sin of compromise will cut you, bleed you, blind you, drain you, and leave you weak. And she called for a man and had him shave off the seven locks of his hair. Then she began to afflict him, and his strength left him (Judges 16:19). Samson thought he could shake himself as before, but by now, he was weak as any other man and a prisoner in his enemies' hand.
4) The Gate of the Trap:
By the time you realize and can see straight, you have already been led through the chambers of three gates and about to enter the fourth. Now, you are about to lose your eyes, be bound in chains, become a slave in the prison of your new master's house, and be subjected to the mockery and harsh ridicule of the public arena. She said, "The Philistines are upon you, Samson!" And he awoke from his sleep and said, "I will go out as at other times and shake myself free." But he did not know that the LORD had departed from him (Judges 16:20).
5) The Gate of the Consequence:
The sin of disobedience will leave you open, naked, and ashamed. Then the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes; and they brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze chains, and he was a grinder in the prison. And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, "Call for Samson, that he may make us sport". And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport (Judges 16:21,25).
The LORD has given to us His Word that chronicles the vivid transparent events of the lives of our forefathers and the consequences suffered each time they refused to obey and walk in their own way. It shares both the successes and failures as a nation, a people, as families, and as individuals. It has been recorded to serve as a reminder of what happen to a people or a nation when they forget and reject GOD. 11Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 12Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. 13No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:11-13). Jesus is our way of escape! He is the Door!
1 Peter 5:8 admonishes us to walk circumspectly while maintaining our spiritual state of awareness in Christ Jesus, which is far more important to the saving of the soul. But this all begins with walking and spending time in the Word with GOD who would not have us to be ignorant concerning the devices, schemes, and plots the enemy. His desire is to keep His children ahead of the game at all times.
If we walk in the Spirit, we will be able to discern and avoid when a trap is laid out for us. GOD has given us a spiritual armor --> Jesus Himself! For it is through Christ Jesus that we are equipped and prepared to fight the good fight of faith in this life. Remember, no man is ever tricked, trapped, or tarnished unless he is first drawn away by the lust in his own heart and enticed. Put on Christ! ~2015 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel PiLLs

While you were stuck in one chapter, left to suffer and live below the bar of your rightful inheritance because somebody dropped you, and as a result, left you wounded. Limited, restricted, and all of a sudden your life bound to the painful poverty stricken plains of Lodebar (be-low-the-bar of GOD's blessing), you did not know, but the king was in another chapter inquiring about you.
Somebody needs to hang on. The King is coming for you. For as David sought out to look for Mephibosheth, Jonathan's son, He is seeking you out and making His way to be a blessing to you in the midst of your situation. Be on the #LookOut. ~2015 Narda Goodson
Lo Debar was such a place. The very meaning is “not having” or “no pasture.” It was a town of forgotten people including Mephibosheth, son of David's best friend Jonathan who was the son of King Saul.
#TheLordWillRescueYou #LostSheep #GodHasNotForgotten
Read the story of Mephibosheth below and then open your Bibles to read the rest.
Scriptures to Meditate on:
1 Samuel 9 - 1And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan's sake? 2And there was of the house of Saul a servant whose name was Ziba. And when they had called him unto David, the king said unto him, Art thou Ziba? And he said, Thy servant is he. 3And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may shew the kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet. 4And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lodebar. 5Then king David sent, and fetched him out of the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lodebar. 6Now when Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, was come unto David, he fell on his face, and did reverence. And David said, Mephibosheth. And he answered, Behold thy servant! 7And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.

Last Night's Prophetic Warning: The Dream and The Warning To the Pastors:
Posted April 25 at 11:12am
She was within the church; participating, working, moving around dancing in a circle just like everyone else. In fact, everyone was dancing the same dance. However, when she whisked around that I could see her back, she was hallow on the inside. There was a big empty whole missing inside her body. It was so big that it was abnormal. She was beautiful on the outside but broken on the inside.
The LORD said that this is the condition of His people. He said many are busy "doing", and they have been "doing" it for so long that it has become their way of life. There is much physical activity on the outside but no spiritual awakening on the inside. It was sad; for many that I saw with her were as hollow, as empty, vacant, and fruitless as she was.
But as they continued happily and merrily at work, the Spirit revealed that they were “working” and not “worshiping”. There was no power and no anointing. The greatest deception shrouded behind the skirts of religion, yet, no one was able to discern.
Today, the Spirit of the LORD is shining the light in these dark areas. These are strongholds operating within the lives of His people. It is what is keeping the slumbering in a spiritually nugatory state - the place where you are just beating the air in religiosity but hitting at nothing and all while the enemy rejoices because there is no real threat.
Another secret unveiled was heard in the sound that regularly inundated the atmosphere. It reminded me of the Pied Piper and those who listened were propelled to follow its mesmerizing tune.
But today, there is a NEW SOUND trumpeting in the spirit realm. It is echoing and rippling, and like the film The Matrix, there is an awakening taken place. GOD is moving by His Spirit, visiting those deep dark places. He is walking through secret chambers to expose where darkness is hiding, masking, and shrouding.
Be warned that you do not fall back into your slumbering state after it has been revealed to you. Do not live in denial after it is disclosed because GOD’s Spirit brings light and truth and with it also accountability and judgment. He is calling you by His Spirit to come up higher. This place is a separated dwelling; a Hallowed Place where His Presence is found and where His Glory is manifested.
To the pastors, the under shepherds of my people, thus saith the LORD. I am calling you to a place of repentance. Repentance for allowing the atmosphere where my Presence and my Glory should manifest to be governed by the powerless traditions of men. Repentance for allowing my Holy Spirit to be grieved. Repentance for permitting committees and legalism to run my house rather than to be led by My Spirit. Repentance for fearing men rather than the reverence of the LORD. My house shall be called the house prayer but you have made it into a den of thieves. Behold, I am coming to visit you. Repent before I remove you from your place! Repent and I will have mercy. Cry out and spare not; for my people are perishing for a lack of knowledge. There is a woe to the pastors.
It is time to break free from all the yokes around your necks. Whatever is on the head is going to flow to the body. This is what is holding you back personally, spiritually. This is what is holding you back corporately. This is what is keeping my people in bondage, morally lax, and spiritually dead. It is time TO STOP following and quit dancing to the Piper’s music.
Today, if you hear GOD’s voice, harden not your hearts. Trust what He is showing you about you. Leave your old nets. You cannot become a fisher of men with your old nets of your broken traditions. They have holes within them; they are flawed, they are weak. They cannot hold substance.
But if you follow My Truth and My leading, I will bring you to fresh waters, to wells that spring up and never dry. Worship Jesus! He that has an ear let Him hear what the Spirit is saying to His people. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Scripture to Meditate on:
Ezekiel 33:6-7 - But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
Tilt your heart towards the SON!

Can GOD Trust You? He that has ears let him hear:
GOD will raise you up, sometimes to a prominent position so that you can deal with the operating principalities and powers from the inside. In Daniel's story, he is raised up because GOD had chosen him for a greater purpose. Daniel had an excellent spirit within him and he was found more skilled than all the men in the Babylonian Kingdom, in other words, he was "smarter and more intelligent" than all the counselors, astrologers, magicians, and sorcerers put together. Daniel had the wisdom and favor of the LORD upon his life, and as a result, GOD was able to use him.
Had Daniel been a lazy, non-committed servant who let his daily struggles defeat him all the time, He would not have been moved into a position of power. Think about it. Daniel was falsely accused; his colleges conspired against him, which ultimately led to a warrant of arrest and death sentence.
Yet, Daniel, whose name means "GOD is my Judge", maintained his "cool". He remained composed in behavior and steadfast in his faith in GOD. Daniel's faithfulness, integrity, commitment, and non-compromising witness is what preceded his promotion. GOD knew that He could trust Daniel and that Daniel would represent Him in an excellent and profound way.
Many Christians today, want promotion without the sacrifice of even doing the basic requirements of loving one's neighbor. We are rude, say we love GOD on the inside but publicly misrepresent Him on the outside. We cheat on our families, lie to get by or advance in our personal motives, while still proclaiming GOD's blessing over our lives. We sing in choirs to minister in the ministry of song but dislike and won't talk to the sister sitting right next to us. This is self deception at its highest peak. Sadly, the most elevated move some of us will ever experience is the changing of one room to the next to get our spiritual diapers changed by the seasoned and mature saints or spiritual parents who are willing to deal with your issues (((again))) and endure the smell of it too. And all because you refuse to grow up and start eating the meat of GOD's Word, thereby, remaining a baby needing bibs, diapers, correction, and a time out corner all the time.
Then there are more of us who GOD will never allow to be placed in a prominent position in the palace like Daniel, Joseph, and Esther. Why? Because we do not know how to walk in godly integrity. Could you imagine if Daniel had cursed out his king like some of us profane our president, prime minister, and leaders of today? Daniel had EVERY RIGHT to become angry when the decree that at the sound of the trumpet all citizens must bow before the golden statue. Had he done that, he would have spoiled the greater plan GOD had in bringing a king and a nation to its knees.
GOD has great plans for us. but only those that know their GOD will discern and make full use of the opportunities and resources given to them. Your gift will make room for you, but when it does, can GOD trust you? ~2015 Narda Goodson
Scriptures to Meditate on:
Daniel 11:32 - And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

Prophetic Word on November 22, 2015
You are a watchman. Stop being afraid to call sin -- SIN! Call it what it is! Show the people the errors of their ways. Hear what GOD is saying to you, the believer, the Christian:
Ezekiel 3:17-21 says: 17Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 18When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thy hand. 19Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 20Again, when a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thy hand. 21Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning; and thou hast delivered thy soul.
The enemy has taken on the lead to distort the very image we were created in. He is intimidating GOD's people by implementing laws that are in direct defiance to GOD's law. We've got preachers today who are scared to address the sin in the camp and the sin outside the camp. Are you kidding me? If you cannot teach the whole counsel of GOD, then you need to sit down or go home. Romans 10:14 says, "How, then, can people call on someone they have not believed? And how can they believe in someone they have not heard about? And how can they hear without someone preaching?"
GOD is not calling us to tickle people's fancy by telling them what they want to hear. We are called to tell them what they need to know so that they too can experience salvation and escape the judgment that will strike those who reject GOD's truth.
GOD is calling the Gideons of today. Those who aren't afraid. Those who are armed and ready. Who know how to lap water like dogs. Those who know how to refreshen himself with the water of His Word, yet be on his guard. The diligent; the prudent. Read Judges 7. Out of 10,000 men only 300 in Gideon's army were the chosen instruments used to defeat the Midianites. The LORD is calling us like the workers in Nehemiah days. We must build with one hand and hold the Sword in the other. Read Nehemiah 4. Each of the builders had his sword strapped around his waist (loin of Truth) while he was building, and the trumpeter was beside me. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church. In Jesus' name! Amen. ~2015 Narda Goodson

Jesus' teaching often found its way onto the turntables of religious controversy. What He taught messed with their minds, convicted their conscious, and tapped danced around their doctrines of religiosity. While His teachings enraged the religious sect, it revolutionized the generation of His day through the power of His love and grace.
While the religious folks were on the inside doing business as usual with the other "religious folks", attending to the rules of the "this and that" and tightening the protocols of the "do's and dont's", Jesus was found outside at the gates, the pools, and the wayside, breaking the powers of racism and segregation like at the well, healing on the Sabbath, and on the streets where the lame, the sick, the broken, wounded, hungry, and thirsty were to be found.
One day, Jesus called the religious leaders of His day a bunch of thieves and robbers (Mark 11:17-19), and as a result of being exposed for what they were, they sought to kill him. Verse 19 then tells us that He then departed out of that city. To answer the call of GOD on your life means standing in the line of fire. It means risking popularity and losing friendships and camaraderie because people rather keep religion, tradition, and culture than being set free by the power of His Word.
When your teaching is influencing and effective, when it begins to EXPOSE the works of the devil and where darkness is abiding, the enemy will send a B.O.L.O. (Be On the Lookout Out) alert on your life. He will use, hello ---> people to try and assassinate the work of GOD in you. But be encouraged. The work of GOD cannot be stopped. If He's using you as a prophet, then prophesy! If He's using you as a teacher, then teach! If He's using you as an evangelist, then evangelize! If He's using you as a pastor, then feed the sheep. If He's using you as an apostle, then go forth in your assignment.
Jesus already told us that we overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by the Word of our testimony. Whatever GOD has called you to do, do it! For as He called Jeremiah to a stiff-necked, hardheaded people, He's called you from before your mother's womb. So now, gird up your loins and arise. Speak to them all that He commands you to speak and do not be dismayed (appalled, horrified, shocked, shaken (up), disconcerted, take aback, alarmed, unnerved, unsettled, thrown off balance, discomposed; disturbed, upset, distressed; rattled, and fazed) AT THEIR FACES, lest the LORD confounds you before them. For it is the LORD that has made you THIS DAY a fortified city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes, against the priests, and against the people of the land. They will fight against you, but they will not prevail against you. For the LORD Himself is with you, says the LORD, to deliver you. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
Scriptures to Meditate on:
Mark 11:17-19 - 17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. 18And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. 19And when even was come, he went out of the city.

Who's Living In Your House? (He that has an ear, let him hear): Click to listen to the Audio-Read-A-Blog
Sarah laughed. Joseph's brothers mocked and hated. People will laugh, mock, and scorn you because of THE PURPOSE that lies within you. Can I talk to some real people with some real issues? People who know what it is to stare at contemptuous religious folks? People who live with Critic and Opposition?
The religious mindset will keep you bound in the circles of Pharaoh, the Pharisees, the PhotoShops, and the Phoney's? It will tie you to the bed of Phobias that will leave you cripple all your life wondering like the paralytic, "Can I do this?" and "Can God really use me?". We need to let the Holy Ghost teach us who we are in Christ!
Life isn't always about "patty-caking" and "sugar-coating" around topics and discussions like we are afraid. We are sons and daughters of the Most High. Stop living in denial as if life were a piece of cake because it isn't.
Jesus dealt with folk in the OPEN courts of His day. He did not talk behind their backs but neither did He shy away in fear. His messages were clear, precise, and direct. In fact, the Bible records that when He confronted and rebuked people for their hypocrisies, His words cut straight to their hearts that they became offended and wanted to kill him. Jesus was despised and rejected. Don't be surprise when people desire to kill you from their groups, churches, and friendship circles. You're not always going to be celebrated.
The Word of GOD will cut you before it cures you. GOD's Word will either free you or convict you. And as mature sons and daughters, we've got to teach it and preach it because we are living it. Now, if the Sword cuts you along the way, know that the same Sword has the power to heal you if you take GOD's correction and rebuke. The Father uses whom He chooses and wills, and if He can make an donkey talk, then He can surely use you and me today.
The spirit of the Pharisee kills. It wants to kill so badly that it would have stoned the woman caught in adultery (no mercy). It would have kept the lame man sick (traditions). It would not have spoken with the woman at the well (racial arrogance and divisions). There is a Phariseutical (Narda's dictionary) religious spirit that has gripped the church today and it is a spiritual movement whose agenda is to keep the believer silent and passive in fear.
Because the spirit of the Pharisee is strategic and critically cynical, it attacks and holds its captives in prison in all types of ways. It lives, breeds, and camps in doctrinal teachings and denominations passed through cultural differences and is designed to keep you from ever embracing all GOD has for you.
It will keep you complacent in your pew with never doing anything greater. It will keep you in the "dreaming" phase of your life. And because you're too scared (((because))) "they said" that "GOD said" that you were nothing more than to be confined to the limitations of being you, you don't even have sense enough to find out who GOD is for yourself.
You see, the enemy understands that when the Holy Ghost reveals to you who Christ is in you, you'll become like the Samaritan woman whose one encounter with Jesus at the well left her evangelizing her entire city by talking about "Come see a man!" who told me who I AM. And if that doesn't work, the Pharisee movement has Saul on standby, ready to dress you to look like him, talk like him, walk like him, and war like him. It understands the power of image. But the "image" is not powerful enough to contend and slay yourGoliath.
Stop letting people dress you. Let the Word of GOD dress and make you over again. We've been Photo-cropped far too long that we have no idea who we have become. And it is going to take the Fire of GOD, consecration, setting ourselves apart through fasting and praying so that the transformation of the Refiner's Fire can take place within us.
Listen! Opposition from the outside is one thing but to face opposition from the inside is another. You've got to be willing to address the enemy on the outside but also be willing to handle him on the inside. Don't be scared. Folks will either love you or hate you. But it is the people that know their GOD that shall do exploits.
People will shout "Hosanna" today and then scream "Crucify him!" tomorrow. You've got to be able to take it. You cannot afford to allow relationships, friendships, camaraderie, and any kind of connection with folks to water down the message GOD gives you. If they've got to go, then go!
Purposeful people aren't tied down by mediocrity and confined to the shackles of Egypt. You are not bound to the religious mindset of the Pharisee. You owe them nothing but love and truth. So, it's time to tell the Far-To-See to go. It's time to tell the Sad-To-See, I can't stay. It's time to tell those Pharaoh's in your life that you are doing an exodus. You are exiting the circles of "I care what you think".
The enemy on the outside is not nearly as dangerous as the enemy on the inside because he's got to break through in order to steal what is on the inside. If the enemy has come against you from the inside, it is because of the TREASURE GOD placed within you. GOD has placed inside of you a treasure box called PURPOSE. It is valuable. It is powerful. It is anointed. That is why he is trying to steal it, stop it, and stomp on it. Don't you dare allow the opinions of others stop the move of GOD in you. Now, who's living in your house? It's time to put some things out and close some doors. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. In Jesus' name! Amen! ~2015 Narda Goodson

When the enemy knows you're coming, who knows he will send a storm to keep you from getting to the other side? He'll send witches, naysayers, soothsayers, liars and schemers. He'll raise up people to attack you, hate you, mock you, discourage you, and commit all types of evil acts against you. I believe there are some people whose only anointing is to gossip about you. Who knows that there are people right now who are watching and waiting for you to die in your situation?
Listen, the same wood that was keeping Paul warm after his shipwreck contained a snake (Acts 28). You will have people in your life called "frenemies" and "famenies (Narda's dictionary)" that will "suddenly" turn on you like a fiery viper. But who knows that every time you cut a child of GOD down he'll just keep springing forward like grass?
The disciples went through the vehement storm (Mark 4), Moses was flowing down the Nile in the midst of snakes and crocodiles (Exodus 2), Paul was bitten by a snake (Acts 28), and Joseph was thrown into a pit (Genesis 37). Yet, all these stood the test of time and came through. Why? Because GOD was with them. And so He will be with all those who trust and hope is in Him.
As GOD's chosen people, you will face trials, you will hit hard times, and face enemies of all sorts, but do not fear them. The Bible has inscribed to us the testimonies of our forefathers to serve as an encouragement that what GOD has for us will be for us. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. As He was with His people in ancient times, He is here with us.
Be encouraged people of GOD because when people exit out on you, there is a GOD that is revealed in Ezekiel 48:35 as Jehovah-Shammah, the LORD IS THERE. Psalms 46:1 says that GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Take heart! The LORD is with you! ~2015 Narda Goodson
