Refuse to "Stagger" in Unbelief

Posted on March 23, 2019 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)

GOD waited until Abraham and Sarah's physical potential, ability, and strength had died. Already laid and trapped behind the rock in a tomb, wrapped up like a mummy, Lazarus' body rested still as his decaying body reeked of death.

Mary and Martha stared at their impossible gravely painful situation. Jesus was late! And now, by the fourth day, their brother's body was a horrific undisputed, decomposing, fatal mess. In their estimation, it was over!

What painful crisis are you staring at today?


If we are not careful to fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, we can let the lack of other people's faith place us behind strong rocks and dead tombs. Never ever give them the power to put a lock on your crisis. Your situation may be grave, it may smell, and there may appear to be no hope, but I've come to let some of you know and remind others that for the believing child of GOD, He is the Strong Tower we run into and find shelter, strength and need in times of trouble. Our GOD is the GOD of impossibilities.

It's okay to feel alone or even be alone because sometimes, we will walk alone. Even our sweet Savior knew what it felt like to have his friends fall asleep on him during the season of his greatest pain. And while your friends may seemingly fall asleep on you in yours, there is a friend that does stick closer than a brother, and His name is Jesus! Ultimately, that is who you need to know is there.

Jesus knew what he was facing, but in his humanity, He was looking for the intimate fellowship from his closest buddies. It's the human part of us that longs to know that those closest to us in heart are still there. But when Jesus comes out to check if they're still "hanging" with Him, he finds them sleeping. Three times did Jesus "come out" to check on them when in actuality, they should have been checking in on him. But when He checks the third time and still finds them sleeping, He utters these words, "Sleep on..."

GOD knows exactly where you are even when others tire waiting and watching with you. But be of good cheer friend. Your situation is a perfect platform for GOD to step right in and show you that He is your Friend and that He will never fail you. Abraham STAGGERED NOT in unbelief but he believed GOD and GOD called Abraham His friend.

While navigating through your turbulently raging and painful season, anchor yourself, cling to, and hang on to the threads of faith in GOD's Word. Keep going. Because when you look back, it'll be because He wants to show you that you were walking on water while everyone else was still in the boat. GOD will be your friend and see you through to the end. ~2019 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel PiLLs

The Cocoon of Life

Posted on March 23, 2019 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)

If we are not #careful, we can become #confused in the season of our tight places. The #constriction, #confinement, and the intense #closing and pressing in from every side #can make one feel like they've been forgotten or even a #castaway. To add to this burden, many people, in good #conscience, will attempt to sum up and even rationalize reasons about your #crisis.

We never know what GOD is doing and why people are where they are. If it wasn't because I had my own personal relationship and encounters with GOD, I would have gone off-track and insane following or listening to some of the #counsel people had to offer.

Your metamorphosis, hanging upside down while harnessing to the only thread that can keep you from falling to the ground encounter is a #crucial lesson you will have to pass through. This lesson #carries with it valuable treasures that prepares you to soar into your transitional stage. But you must learn to sit still long enough to hear from Heaven, endure the encasing hardship, and learn to depend solely on GOD.

If we #controlled every aspect of our lives, we wouldn't need to grow, we wouldn't need the LORD, and we surely wouldn't come to know Him as the Rescuing, Delivering GOD that He is.

In the valleys, the desert, the wilderness, and in the pits of life is where we encounter the redeeming power of #Christ and experience the miracle of His might not the mountain top. For it is in the valley that He restores the soul. ~2019 Narda Goodson

*And yes, that is my face in the video ��.

An Open Heaven

Posted on March 17, 2019 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

As I remain in my prayer closet, in the Spirit, I see the fire of GOD pouring out of the Heavens. It is pouring down on those whose hearts and hands are lifted up in total surrender. Total surrender to His will and His way.

I see pockets of Heaven's portals raining down and breathing upon His sons and daughters. I hear the Spirit of the LORD say do not be afraid of the Refiners Fire. For I am pouring my Holy Fire upon your head to refine and purge you. Yes, you are the sacrifice and I am blowing away the chaff and the ashes so that my glory can manifest in and through My purified vessels. This is a sanctification and consecration process all taking place in preparation for your next shift.

May the Holy Spirit calm and comfort your heart. It is easy to lose heart when things are burning in your life. David wrote in Psalm 25 and verses 1-3: "Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. 2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. 3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause."

The battle of the believers are already won. But it is in the Spirit that you must grab a hold of this truth first. Then by faith, pull it into the atmosphere of the physical realm. It's not by might nor by power but by the Spirit of the Living GOD. Be encouraged. Your GOD is near! ~2019 Narda Goodson

Are the Undercurrents of Life Sweeping You Away?

Posted on March 15, 2019 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Some of you are in a really dark place in your journey. You have become overwhelmed, worrisome, and fearful because you can feel as it would be the undercurrents of life sweeping you away into an even darker, gloomier dungeon. When you look to the left. CLOSED! When you look to the right. NOT AVAILABLE! When you look behind you! CANCELED! And when you look in front of you. IMPOSSIBLE!

Be still! The LORD is Strong and Mighty. And it will be in the midnight hour of your praise that He will show up. Be encouraged and LOOK UP! GOD is about to break the chains that are keeping you tied up, bound up, shut down, and disabled. GOD is there with you and He will not fail you. Just open your mouth and give Him praise right in the midst of it. Those shackles are about to break in Jesus' Name! When it happens, don't forget to testify and give GOD the praise! ~2019 Narda Goodson

Scriptures to Meditate on:

Acts 16:25-26 - 24 On receiving this order, he placed them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25About midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly a strong earthquake shook the foundations of the prison. At once all the doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.

The Den of Lions

Posted on March 15, 2019 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I love the story of Daniel. Yes, Daniel in the den of lions. Notice that the text reads "the den of lions" in Daniel 6:16 - "Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions". If it had read "the lion's den", it would have taken on an important meaning - that the den belonged to the lions.

But here is an important truth in this small group of words that have given the enemy so much power. GOD owns everything and nothing belongs to any of us unless given to us by the LORD Himself. Whatever den your enemies have prepared for you or cast you in, remember, GOD is the owner of the den and He has the final say on what takes place in it. ~2019 Narda Goodson

The Colliding of Two Dimensions

Posted on March 14, 2019 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Our days of attempting to adjust GOD into our own lifestyle and believing that's enough is coming to an end. GOD is calling us to obedience. He is calling us to a higher place. He is calling us to conform into His image, which means our lifestyle lines up with His Word, not the other way around as many are trying to invoke GOD's blessing on "stuff" and "ways" He has said must go.

Prayer: Father, I pray the deception on our fleshy perception comes to subjection under holy inspection. May GOD's purging fire bring about a righteous disconnection that will sever the misdirection in the intellection.

Holy Spirit bring death on the infection that keeps us bound to weakness and temptation. For the fruit of it yields rotten imperfection and keeps us back so that we cannot truly experience the freedom and power Christ brought through His resurrection.

We cannot serve you and the world at the same time. For the two dimensions collide. But if Christ reigns in me then there must be an internal objection that stands guard against that which would bring spiritual corruption and contamination to my soul. I must not allow rejection to godly correction. And so, today, I yield. In Jesus' name! ~2018 Narda Goodson, Songs of Narda

Scriptures to Meditate on:

Hebrews 3:13,15 - But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Strength Perfected In Weakness

Posted on March 14, 2019 at 6:45 PM Comments comments (0)

GOD will use the weakest part of who we are to accomplish missions and assignments we could never complete on our own. In ourselves, we can do nothing, but through Him, we can accomplish all that He's laid out for us to do. Either we believe Him or we don't. LORD, I believe! ~2019 Narda Goodson

Scriptures to Meditate on:

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me. 10That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Painfully But Beautifully Broken

Posted on March 14, 2019 at 5:40 PM Comments comments (0)

It's a painful thing when GOD #blesses you, then #breaks you like #bread to then serve you to the world like a #buffet. To be used by GOD we must be #broken. ~2019 Narda Goodson

#PainfullyBroken #BreadOfLife #TheFinishedWorkIsGlorious

Scriptures to Meditate on:

Matthew 14:19 - And He instructed the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He spoke a blessing. Then He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.

Killing the Enemy IN-AH-ME

Posted on March 14, 2019 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

We need to kill the enemy within. Mute those #deathly, #discouraging, #doubting, #despairing sounds. #Discouragement and #depression cannot #dwell, abide, and live in where there is an active atmosphere of the Holy Spirit. With the Presence of the Word of GOD inundating the air, it is impossible! The head gear given to us in Ephesians 6, which is the Helmet of Salvation, is your #defense when the enemy IN-AH-ME and IN-AH-YOU (said in my JamaRican accent :D) #desires to #detrack and #derail you off your faith course. Put on the mind of Christ. That is how you #defeat your foe! ~2019 Narda Goodson

Scriptures to Meditate on:

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 - 4The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We tear down arguments, and every presumption set up against the knowledge of God; and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Quack It Off. It's Time to Preen

Posted on February 28, 2019 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (0)

When you didn't get the apology you deserved. Let it go! When you didn't get the last word in. Let it go! Be willing to lose the battle so that you can win the war. You were not meant to carry offenses and unforgiveness. They will keep you caged in like an angry dog. Learn to let it go!

Let's learn from the duck. The duck has the ability to get into water without water getting into her. Have you ever wondered why a duck appears to remain dry even during the time she is in the water?

If you've ever taken the time to watch ducks long enough, you will find that they spend a lot of time nibbling their feathers with their beaks. I use to think they were always relieving themselves of pesky fleas or other annoying invaders that might be attacking their skin, but much to my surprise, something more amazing was actually taking place.

When ducks nibble their feathers, it is called preening. Preening is the process by which a duck spreads oil all over the top of her feathers. The oil secretes from a unique place found near her tail's end, and while she is spreading the oil, it makes her feathers waterproof. Water cannot penetrate pass the first layer of her oily feathers, which keeps all of her feathers underneath dry and keeps her warm and cozy.

Learn and Discern:

May your life be like a duck. May the oil of GOD's Word spread over you to protect and cover you making it impossible for the waters of doubt, fear, offense, and unforgiveness to get into you.

You are an important vessel of GOD sailing on the troublesome waters of life. Your cargo carries the oil of light, life, and love of #Jesus. It also carries the healing power to a dying world. But there will be many invaders that will attempt to board your ship only to sabotage it from the inside. Quack it off by preening.

Do not allow the tumultuous waves of the sea and the vehement rain of life to drown out, snuff out, and wash away the fire within. By keeping the feathers of your armor greasy and oiled with GOD's Word, you will quench all the fiery darts of the wicked, while staying protected and snugged on the inside. For the oil burning on the inside will continually provide the lubricant needed for the outside. ~2015 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel PiLLs
