Inspirational Writing by Janet Mata:

You are not a victim.  Everything you are and everything that is going on around you is a result of your choices in life.

Your eternal destiny will also be a result of choices you make in life.

What will you choose?  What will you do?  Who will you blame for life’s circumstances?

WHEN will YOU take responsibility for ALL of your actions and choices in life?

But I didn’t know… Thanks’ OK.  But you still made choices that led you to these places.  Whether they were thoughts, actions, or words; even if they were chosen; made in your generational line.

Many things happen in life due to judgments, offences, grumbling and complaining, food consumption choices, what you spend your money on, what movies you watch, what books you read, what friends you have.  How much time you spend in prayer, and worship.  These are all choices done on your behalf my child.

When will you accept responsibility?  When will you take action?  WHEN?

For responsibility is the key to action taking.

Whether you like your circumstances or not, whether you are happy with your surroundings or not – Take responsibility.

I mean OWN it.  Own what’s there.  Own your results as though it was your first day on earth, and you found yourself where you are.

Own your choices my friend, and become wise.  Wise in nature.  Wise in future results.  Decide what outcome you would rather have, and make new choices in order to get those results.  (to get you there)

Life is a series of learning – doing and acting.  mimicking what you have been taught, what you choose to do, and what was experienced. 

Come to me, and ask me, “What would Jesus do?  What do I want to do?  What are my options?  What result do I want?” 

For I have given you the power to choose, and the power to create your own world.

Are you playing the victim card on everything that happens to you?  – As though your mind can not make choices after the fact on what you want to do with this experience?

Do you want to help people?

Then help them to take responsibility for their actions.  Help them to see they cannot play the victim card.  You are in your circumstances for a reason.

Pray.  Seek.  Knock.  – and the door to your destiny will be opened. 

Do you want to be healthy?  Have you asked me to help you eat healthy foods and asked me to show you the best way for you?  If you are in Babylon, do you look to the wicked world for your advice?

Everything  you do, is your choice.  You do not  have to do anything.

Life is a choice.  Now make good choices from now on.

 What you think and dwell upon is a choice.  What you drink is a choice.  Who you talk to is a choice.  How courteous and forgiving  you are, is a choice. 

You choose.  You choose.

Life is a series of choices.  Will you ask me my opinion?  Will you guess, or do nothing and blame everything around you? 

Take responsibility.

I said in my word – subdue the earth and everything in it.

Submit yourself to God , Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 

Be anxious for nothing but by prayer and supplication and thanksgiving  let your request be known to  God.

Call upon me and I will answer you.

You are not a victim.

You are not a victim.

You are not a victim.

You are not a victim of your circumstances.  It’s no one’s fault.

They are merely the result of choices made.  These choices move in a certain direction – which you can alter – or counter direct by your choices.

You may choose.  Ask me to help you.  Choose well.

“What if I don’t know what to choose?”   -Ask me and I shall reveal the answer.

Take responsibility.

“I can’t” needs to be removed from your inner thoughts.  Stop self-restricting yourself daughter, because my word says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

  Do not focus on your fears. 

Faith is the substance of things not seen; let Hope be your stronghold. 

How far must you reach to obtain a lofty goal I have given you? 

How long will it take? 

How much strength will you need?

What  will it require? 

Ask me my daughter, and I shall give you all of the above

If you ask your earthly father for a fish will he give you a snake?  How much more your heavenly father will give you what you ask.  Ask; and you shall receive.   Keep on asking, and believe. 

It’s time to take responsibility.  And see the results, and take responsibility again, and see those results, and again,  take responsibility.

 It is a  series of actions to get the results.  If the results you see are not desirable, then make alternate choices until what you see is the desired outcome.  This is a practical teaching, my child. Make use of it. 

How to prioritize?  Focus on one thing at a time.  Meaning, whatever you are doing, focus, so your mind is not distracted.

Take responsibility for where you currently are.  Make new choices, to get you to a new destination. 


Ask me what to do, ask me for guidance. Ask me for wisdom.  See change for the good.  For the better, for the kingdom and for the Glory of God.

Scripture References:

Psalm 43:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,  and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him,  and He will make your paths straight

Luke 12:5

But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.

Join me in the following prayer:

Father God,  I admit I have been depressed.  I admit I have been afraid.  Forgive me.  Forgive me of every thought of the worst that can happen.  Forgive me for feeling hopeless and helpless.

I receive your forgiveness.  I choose to trust you.  I choose to believe  your word, and I choose to believe your promises.  I receive you as my Lord and Saviour in every area of my life. 

I forgive myself.  I release myself from all debt and obligations that I would owe. 

I break all demonic soul ties between myself and any entity that is feeding me lies of fear and doubt.   I break all demonic soul ties between myself and anything within me resorting to helplessness, hopelessness and depression. 

I now cancel all Satan’s power and authority over me in all these issues; because I have received forgiveness.

Holy Spirit come into my heart, and reveal your truth to me.  I break the power of all deceptive lies, and ask  you to consistently reveal the truth to me on a daily basis. 

I choose to walk in the ways of the Lord my God, and to return from where I left off in my relationship with him.  I am no longer willing to listen to lies in the media.  I choose to only listen to the truth.  

Where lies continue, I thank you that you have given me great discernment to understand what is evil, and what is good; discernment to know lies from truth.   

Thank you that you are using me to encourage others; and to fulfill my destiny without wavering or tire.

Praise the Lord my God, who is taking me out of the pit; to the palace.  In the mighty name of Jesus, AMEN!

Inspirational Writing by Janet Mata – It’s Your Divine Destiny is sponsored by BeautyforAshesBoutique.com

Why are you downcast, O my soul?  Have you forgotten all the lofty promises of the Lord your God?  Are you looking to your current circumstances; feeling stuck, like permanent glue?

Will things ever change?  Will the Lord my God keep his lofty promises; and when will they come about?

For my heart is drawn to the Lord my God – for even He has saved my very soul, He has accomplished the greatest feat of mankind, the laying down of his life, not only that; but a perfect life – worthy of great power and strength; deemed worthy of gaining salvations of all mankind.

For He has gained victory over rejection, pride, accusation, theft, pain, agony, and even death; and may I state; death on a cross.  Not for His sins, for He had not; but for your sins, the sins of mankind; every single one.

He has gained victory and has passed that victory to all who call themselves after He, Christ; The One who was there since the beginning; the One who assisted in creation itself.

For can a God who has divided entire seas, stopped storms, cause water to come out of the rock, caused manna to fall from Heaven, sent plagues upon Egypt and rise from the dead, accomplish all He has promised, and proclaimed; in this day and age?

The One who manages multitudes of the angelic host; sets luminaries in place; the One who heard Jonah at the great ocean depth; and spoke to the fish to vomit him out on the shore; only so he could do what God commanded him to do?

How much proof do you need: O ye of downcast soul, that God is the God of love, fulfilled promise and recompense?

For He will accomplish what He desires; He will fulfill His promises.  He is good for His word; either through His word in the Bible – or whispered into your soul while you sleep.

For He is the master planner.  He has understanding and wisdom.  He has his gifts with him, ready to distribute at will.

But what is my part?  If I am downcast, am I not in a rebellious state; am I not out of sorts; and in dis-alignment with His promises?

It is my job to believe, agree, stand in proxy, proclaim, and trust with my whole heart; with my whole mind, and my entire soul.

He said that I would accomplish mighty feats; greater feats than what He accomplished.

So I shall sturdy myself – pray, seek, and knock, for that is where  inner-strength lies.

I shall worship him; love him, and focus on all of his lofty accomplishments.

I shall put a smile on my face, and begin to be thankful for all that he has promised, given, and for the fact that I am alive and well today.

For Satan is a liar.  He tricks us to believe that God will not do what He promised; he deceives us to feel unworthy.  He lures our mind into despair and loneliness – But I shall not buy his wares; I am returning all the lies I have purchased, and wasted my time, energy, and money on.

I shall no longer resort to them; or fall on them; or lean on them as a default action.    

But now, I shall lean on His strength, the strength of the Lord my God, and all of his loftiness and grandeur.  For time is in His hands, and the future is waiting for me, to proclaim; to speak out the truth of God – so it may be accomplished in me.                                                                                                                                             For you attract what you put out; and depression will not attract the blessings of God.

So put on a smile, and put a skip in your step, and begin to act like you are a believer in the one true lofty God; who has promised much, and who is about to accomplish mighty things on the earth.

The God who loves, even you, even after all you have done, and not done.

Repent, O my soul of all the lies you believed.

For if you tune in to the ‘deception channel’, that is all you will see.

If you listen to the lies of the media, that will flood your soul with lies of fear.

Fear the Lord, O you people of the earth, fear the lord.

Fear Him; who can send you to hell, and on that day all will be lost, anything you might have gained will be destroyed.

Live for Him, so you may live in eternal dwellings, and eternal life.  Believe in the One who is about to do the mighty things on the earth no man can fathom, or understand.

Give your life to Him, who will pick you up; turn you around, and set you right.

Who will then not blot you out of his great book of life, instead; fill you with peace. Be Saved!  Be Saved!  Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  He is your very future.  He is love and wants you in His Kingdom.  Receive Him!   Receive Him in your heart!   And be saved.

Evenly Yolked

Thank you for visiting It’s Your Divine Destiny!

Stay evenly yolked with me, and do not go off on your own. 

Staying evenly yolked with me means taking an even share, and timing your steps according to my lead.  When I go, you go.  When I stop, you stop.  When I slow down,  you slow down, when I speed, you speed. 

When I pray,  you pray.  When I intercede, you intercede.  When I war, you war.

When I rejoice,  you rejoice. When I rest,  you rest.  Did I not only do what I saw my Heavenly Father doing?  Did I not say only what I saw my Father saying?  Did I not tread the grain, set the example, and give up my will for Father’s? (will)

I set the example, now you set the example.

Are you my bride?  Are you married to me?  Are you faithful?

For my bride is one with me.  My bride reflects all I am and all I am doing.

Do not put me to the test, like the Israelites did in the wilderness, and like those who followed me in the beginning;  miserably failed at the end. Do not test me or your marriage to me.  For did I not divorce those who were utterly disloyal and unfaithful?  And not just those who were disloyal once, or twice, but mass offenders of my love?

Spiritual Adulterers – those who are constantly leaving me for other things.  Worries, Flurries, the cares of this world, new things, new relationships, new businesses and the like.

Therefore sit in my presence, and do not act like a wild ass, untamed in all its ways.

Sit at my feet and listen for I have things to tell you.  Wonderful things, fearful things, informative things, and lovely things.  I have a voice – and my spirit beckons unto you, my bride, and as your husband and king I beckon unto you to spend time with you. 

I desire intimacy and fellowship.  I desire laughter and would like to share my sorrows.  Daughter, and son, share your life with me.  And allow me to share my life with you.   Let me tell you what is going on.   Allow me to reveal to you heavenly secrets.  Let me give you special gifts only I can give.  For I have value.   Do not ignore me; for in your day of trouble would you like me to ignore you?

Are you my friend or not?

Are you really sharing  your life with me?  For I said I would always be with you. 

Acknowledge me in your ways and all shall be well with you.  Seek me first and all other things  shall be added unto you.  Yolk with me and I will yolk with you.  Spend time with me, and I will reveal to you secrets in the heavenly kingdom. 

For what good is your salvation if you are not ready on the last day?  Did I not say those who are faithful to the end will inherit the kingdom of life?  Did I not say to be an over-comer?

Did I not say I am the resurrection and the life?  Did I not say do not be weary in well doing?  Alas you must be faithful to the end.  You must not retreat.  You must not forget.  You must not neglect.

Ask me to show you.

Ask me to help you.

Ask me to comfort you.

Do not run away, avoiding  your very avenue for healing.  For I am the master healer.  I am the master lock and you have been given the master key.  Will you throw it away for a day of pleasure and distraction? 

I am your master bank vault filled with gold, silver and jewels.  Will you go look for your own treasures thinking they are better than what I have to offer?

A husband desires to spend intimacy with his bride, his wife.   Slow down my beloved for I desire you.  I wish to reveal secret chambers to you, for our benefit. Will you come to see?

And the day I have gifts for you; will you be there to receive or will I be forced to give them to one more worthy?   Was not queen Vashti replaced by one more honorable and worthy?  I love you so much, enough to warn you of this dangerous place.

Indeed, this is a dangerous place.  Take me seriously and I will take you seriously.  I have more for you, and am extending my hand.  Come, take hold and see where I will lead you.  Life with me is an adventure.  Don’t miss out.  For you truly will see the rewards. 

Your King, Yeshua.

Scripture References:

Esther 1:3

But when the attendants delivered the king’s command, Queen Vashti refused to come. Then the king became furious and burned with anger.

Exodus 6:9

Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and harsh labor.

Isaiah 41:10

Don’t be afraid, because I am with you. Don’t be intimidated; I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you.  I will support you with my victorious right hand.

The Wooden Spoon

Thank you for visiting It’s Your Divine Destiny!

Once upon a time there was an innocent little girl.  She longed for her mother’s approval, but found herself being disciplined by her mother with a wooden spoon countless times.

The girl was naive and did not really know why she was being disciplined most of the time.  The scenario always ended with a period of trying to figure out what she did wrong to deserve the punishment she just received.

This little girl was me.

I can remember our seating arrangement at the dinner table, which was shaped like an octagon, and there were four of us.  We each had our assigned seat.  We had strict rules at the dinner table.   We had to be sitting properly.  We had to hold our fork properly.  And normally the television was on during dinner. 

For some reason I was the clumsy one.  (and the youngest of the family)  Either I spilled the milk while pouring more in my glass, or I dropped peas from my fork, and here came the wooden spoon.  My mother would go into the kitchen to the drawer, get out the wooden spoon and slap it on the table next to me, as a warning.  I got to continue my meal with the wooden spoon next to me, as a reminder not to make another false move. 

If I made another mistake, I would be hit with that spoon.  If I talked back, I was hit. 

My life was a system of rights and wrongs, never really learning or feeling like I could do what I was expected to do.  And many times not knowing how. 

A few times I was slapped by her at the dinner table as an instant reaction instead of the spoon.  I grew up hating my mom, and wooden spoons.

It seemed I got into trouble a lot, and looking back, the memory of what I did to deserve punishment is not clear.  But what is clear is the routine of what happened next.  My mother got angry.  She went to the kitchen drawer.  She came back with the wooden spoon.  I was beat.

She tried to beat me on my rear, but as the beating continued, I tried to cover myself, begging her to stop.  Screaming.  My hands desperately trying to cover my rear from the pain that I anticipated.  Many times screaming before she even started to hit me. 

Once she started, she did not stop.  She kept beating me.  If she could not get my rear, she hit my legs, not just once, not twice, but over and over and over and over.   I screamed.  I cried.  No one ever came to help me. 

I was sent to my room and told to shut up.  Be quiet.  If I cried, I was beat again. 

My only option was to scream into my pillow in order ‘not to be heard’.  Because if I didn’t, she would hear me, and come back into my room and beat me again with the spoon.

Sometimes she beat me hard and long enough that the spoon would break.  When I saw the spoon break; as a little girl I was devastated. (that she would hit me so hard that it would break)  When going to my room and looking at all the oval welts on my legs, I felt worthless and sorry for myself. 

I grew up hating the wooden spoon.  I thought to myself, I would never have a wooden spoon when I get my own kitchen.

Even as I got older, the discipline was the same.  If I did or said something wrong that make my mother angry – I could expect to be hit, or a beating with the wooden spoon – again.

Years later, after being saved by Jesus Christ as my savior, and about 5 years after that, in a season of my life God brought me to a place of deliverance.  I learned that I needed to forgive my mother for all she did to me.  And to allow Jesus to heal me of all the pain and the beatings.   I had abuse cast out of me.  And there was more than one.  I went through a process called inner-healing; where you forgive, heal the trauma associated with it, and have the unclean spirit behind it cast out.  I began to change dramatically through the process, and became stronger and stronger. 

It was a long process, and no matter where you are at, there is always more to do. 

I have been saved now for over 20 years and just yesterday went through another layer of the bitterness, and pain from the past.

I thought it was all healed, and forgiven!  But every circumstance requires another healing.  It’s a process.

Interestingly enough, just days before I came across these cute wooden spoons with happy faces and had to buy them.  Although they looked just like the ones my mother beat me with, the faces on them changed my feeling toward them.  I put them in my kitchen.  Now I realize it was God who led me to buy them, and telling me he will make all things new.  He will change my gloom to joy.  And he did. 

The process is not an easy one.  And there still may be more to heal.

But today, I have the victory through Christ Jesus for my healing and comfort, and deliverance. To God be the glory.
