This morning I woke up with the word “ALLITERATION” running through my mind alongside a heart full of gratitude for the presence of the Holy Spirit within me. I was also dreaming about a discussion I was having about the reality of the person of the Holy Spirit.


I have always loved using alliteration to pronounce and make things stand out in my writing.  I was curious why it popped up now. I wondered, Holy Spirit, are You leading me into a strategic stance of pronounced praise and worship simply to greatly glorify Your goodness and to declare dominion rule over the devil’s devious schemes to destroy me?

On Sunday my pastor gave an anointed message about overcoming problems and the power of praise.  Praise is the greatest weapon a believer has to overcome Satan and the powers of darkness.  The truth is that God inhabits the praises of His people and the devil does not stand a chance to defeat us in the presence of God.  Praise must be our permanent offensive weapon and habitual stance!


Therefore, I praise You, Lord God, and thank you that the victory belongs to me because of the blood bought covenant Your beloved Son Jesus procured and sealed for my redemption and eternal position and place in You and with You on earth as it is in heaven.

Years ago I read Benny Hinn’s book, “Welcome, Holy Spirit.” He taught me so much about the Holy Spirit I did not know.  Then on April 21, 1997, when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in other tongues, my prayer life was revolutionized and changed forever.

Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  (James 5:16).

Truthfully, mere humans run out of language and the ability to know what to pray in order to get effective results.  Who, other than God’s own Holy Spirit, is more qualified to teach, lead, direct and literally pray through us the perfect Word and will of God?

And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weaknesses; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.  (Romans 8:26-27).

It absolutely boggles my mind to think that the God of all creation loved us enough to choose to come and dwell inside of us by the power of His own Holy Spirit.  Thank you, Lord God, for making a way to take up permanent residence within us by our simple invitation to ask you to come in.

I recently read on a church sign outdoors,  “God doesn’t want just weekend visitation, He wants full custody.”

Ask yourself, “Does God have full custody of me and everything in every area of my life?   IF NOT…WHY NOT?  WHAT’S STOPPING ME FROM GIVING GOD FULL CUSTODY OF ALL MY THOUGHTS, WORDS AND DEEDS?

If you are tired of the status quo and of being stuck, broke, defeated, ineffective without desired results, sick, and/or without hope, peace and joy, then do it God’s way all the way and BE more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus!

Read, study, listen to, and understand God’s holy Word so you can get into agreement with Him and then declare what He declares to, over and about YOU.  Then you will  habitually enjoy the abundant life He already provided for you.  The choice is yours to have the perfect will of God operating in your life…OR NOT!

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.  (Joshua 1:8, 9).

Face the truth.  There is not enough paper, ink, or adequate words in the universe to accurately describe the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent power of Almighty Jehovah God!  That is the supreme alliteration about God.

Even the bible couldn’t hold it all, however, it is your sure foundation and very real way for the victorious life in Christ Jesus.



Love in Jesus,

    Powerful Word, Nancy! I am in a similar place in my life – recognizing anew, declaring anew and inviting anew, the Holy Spirit into my life, my mind and my heart!

    What an incredible gift God affords us!

    Blessings as you go!

    Wow Nancy! What a wonderful message and beautiful pictures. This morning during my two-way journaling time, the Lord told me, “Your decision to hire Nancy as a paid intercessor was one of the best business decisions you have ever made.” Blessings! Joseph

    Thank you, Joseph, for blessing me with your kind words. The fruit of your two-way journaling is a great encouragement to me and rather humbling, to say the least. Holy Spirit knows all and knows what’s best for each of His children. May we live a surrendered life for His glory!

    Blessings to rule and reign in and with Christ!

    Nancy your long hours of searching the Spirit for that one heart rendering presentation has paid off in this post. The Holy Spirit knew exactly what was needed to open the hearts of God’s people to know of His Reality and that He so wants to be an active Reality in their daily lives. He desires to bless their life to be above the stress,tension and anxiety of the fear that surround them on all sides.
    Only Holy Spirit can enable and equip us to walk in this life. We can do nothing without the Holy Spirit equipping us to become the spirit filled and overflowing sons and daughters of the Most Hi God, the father of Jesus Christ and our father. He is always FOR US and not against us. Jesus Christ MADE us the RIGHTEOUSNESS,in RIGHT STANDING BEFORE GOD and so we are no longer under condemnation.

    This you have shown by Word and Picture the pure love of God for those who will accept Him. Thank you, Prayer partner!

  • Nancy Slocum (author) said:

    Thank you for you support and encouragement my dear prayer partner! There is no life that compares to the reality of the supernatural power and presence of the Holy Spirit. Walking in the spirit is “The Great Adventure in Christ!”

    Thanks for sharing the adventure!
