Filled Up At The No Worries Cafe
On January 2nd of this year, my husband Randy and I were looking for a place to eat. We were celebrating his birthday early as I would be out of town on the actual day. I really wanted to take him somewhere
special. I decided to do a search through a website that recommends good restaurants. I came across
one called “The No Worries Café”. If just felt right. The reviews were good, so we made our way there.
The directions told us to look for the Sinclair sign. We had no idea that the actual restaurant was
attached/part of the Sinclair gas station until we arrived. My husband being gracious and knowing I’m a
foodie who likes fresh, good food asked me if I was going to be ok with this place. I said yes because the
reviews said it was fresh, plus I told him I really felt like God is saying something to us for this year.
The food was simple and very fresh. It was a Sunday and they only served breakfast on Sunday. I actually
ate double hash browns because they were so good. The veggies on my omelet were perfect.
While sitting there I felt the nudge of the Holy Spirit as He began to speak to my heart: I have brought you to The No Worries Café at a filling station to empower you to remember this is where you are to live.
This is a word that many of us can benefit from, Come to the No Worries Café at His Filling Station where the Lord has prepared the freshest food for us! We are not to worry about anything, but put our trust completely in Him. What we think about, what we believe, and what we speak needs to be from a place of feasting on the good word of the Lord.
That week when I was away on a ministry trip I had been spending some time in worship and prayer
before I went to bed for the night. As I prepared to rest I hear Holy Spirit singing to me; Don’t you worry
about a thing…I rested deeply. When I awoke the next morning He sang this to me; It’s the end of the world as we know it.
In the class I taught that day someone reminded me that the song; “It’s the end of the world as we know it” is sung like this:
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine
The Lord has clearly spoken to me that this is a season of faith. This is a year of the great adventure. My
first posts on Facebook this year were about enjoying this year of the great adventure. But, it clearly
depends on what view we will look at this season from. I have been so deeply impacted by what the Lord is speaking to me about this season. Last August I sent out the word: It’s 11:11. Since that time many words have come out about 11:11, each confirming where we need to be with the Lord in this season. Are our words and agreements bringing us into alignment with God’s season? Do we have faith that believes and receives?
Our faith was leveled to ground zero in this last season, and God has been shaking everything in Divine
order so we can shift into His season and promises! I know that there are many challenges we will face,
but if God is for us, who can be against us? If we look at it from heaven’s view we will see the possibilities and promises of God open up before us as He releases us into greater faith to apprehend what He has prepared.
If we look at this season from a view of worry, anxiety, fear, or lack that is where we will dwell. If we
complain and grumble we will never see things from the Lord’s view. These are a few meanings of
complain and grumble: to remain, abide, lodge and dwell. When we complain and grumble we lodge
ourselves in the very place we long to get out of. Our thoughts and emotions dwell in the places our words create. Do we want to live in Anxious Nervous Inn or come to the No Worries Café at the Lord’s Filling Station?
These scripture passages are powerful reminders for us in this season:
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 NAS
Rejoice in the Lord always ; again I will say, rejoice ! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your
requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard
your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. Philippians 4:4-8 NAS
All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he
who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].Proverbs 15:15 AMP
At the No Worries Café at the Lord’s Filling Station, we have continual feast.
There were 12 spies sent into the land that the Lord was promising. Only 2 believed the promise of the
Lord from Deuteronomy 1:11 NAS;
May the Lord, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more you are and bless you, just as He has promised you.
The other 10 were doubters and complainers. They looked at their circumstances through the eyes of fear and not faith. Just read Deuteronomy 1. They lived entertaining evil forebodings and anxious thoughts. They did not enter the Promised Land.
The 2 who believed God and the promises of Deuteronomy 11, were the ones who were able to lead a
believing generation into the promised land. Here is a precious promise of that land:
“For the land, into which you are entering to possess it, is not like the land of Egypt from which you
came, where you used to sow your seed and water it with your foot like a vegetable garden. “But the
land into which you are about to cross to possess it, a land of hills and valleys, drinks water from the rain
of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares ; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it,
from the beginning even to the end of the year. 13 “It shall come about, if you listen obediently to my
commandments which I am commanding you today, to love the LORD your God and to serve Him with all your heart and all your soul, 14 that He will give the rain for your land in its season, the early and late rain , that you may gather in your grain and your new wine and your oil. 15 “He will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.” Deuteronomy 11:10-15 AMP
Those who believed entered the promise. We have a promise that if we abide (dwell) in Christ He will
abide (live) in us. (See John 15) Christ in us is the hope of glory! (See Colossians 1:27). We can live in
peaceful pastures coming through the door of Hope, who is Christ Jesus. Jesus has come to give us an
abundant life. (See John 10:2-11)
It is time to be a people of faith, to arise and soar in faith. I am walking and contending to live in every
prophetic promise over my life. I choose to believe God no matter what the circumstances look like. I want to exhort you to believe God and His promises for you!
Let us fast negativity and doubt. How do we do that? We refuse to allow the bad report to take root in our heart and soul. We pray in the Spirit continually. We give thanks, we praise and we worship our way out of the pit and lies and arise in faith to soar with God into His promises! We agree and decree! What we agree with we empower. When we agree with God all of heaven is on our side! What is the sound that is being released from you? Is it one that moves the mighty right hand of God on your behalf? (see Psalm 118:15)
I want to share a very hard lesson I learned in this past season. I caught a virus right before Christmas and my computer also got a virus. Both of us were really sick and not functioning in our normal capacity at all. I know that I am called to live in divine health. I knew somehow I had opened a door. I began to cry out to God to reveal to me what the issue was with me. He answered me with a word of correction and teaching that I feel is powerful for the body to understand.
He revealed to me that through being critical and complaining about a worship service I had attended. I let my fire wall of protection down. In 1 Corinthians 11:27-32 NAS we read:
Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
Verse 29 and 30 reveal to us that if we do not discern the body rightly, judgment comes upon us. I was
critical of the Lord’s body. I complained about His precious children and judgment which in this instance
was when sickness came upon me. Let me tell you I quickly repented and immediately began to be well.
My computer got malware. Malware attaches when you open a file or download something it tells you is
needed. There were many viruses. Viruses look for a host they can live in. Isn’t that just like the enemy and his evil horde? They need a host to agree with them to fulfill their plan. I empowered negative thoughts and a virus found a host. I downloaded a malware program unknowingly because the way it was presented made me believe I needed it. Don’t become a host for negative thoughts or any activity of the kingdom of darkness.
What I learned from my computer virus and the virus I had is this: my computer’s anti-virus software
program was not running daily. It had not run since 6 months after I purchased the computer. The person who fixed it for me put a new program on it that runs daily. The Lord has a firewall of protection in Him when we abide rightly with Him daily. Anything opposite of His kingdom will allow a crack in this firewall. Daily communion and union with the Lord keeps the firewall up. We have the fiery armor of God; it is His armor of Light. Our God is a consuming fire. He is the burning One inside of His. As we pray in the Spirit, Holy Spirit who is fire surrounds us!
Activate the gift of faith available to you from God and you will arise & soar! Visit the No Worries Café at the Lord’s Filling Station often, don’t you worry about a thing because it’s the end of the world as we know it and we are going to be fine when we put our trust in the Lord!
“And so faith, hope and love abide [faith—conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things; hope—joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love—true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians13:13 AMP
In His Faith, Hope and Love,
