5th day of Countdown Recap on “Chosen Pearl”

Hello Radiant One!

On the 5th day of Countdown to the Special Release with Stacy Zant-“Chosen Pearl” This is what we covered:

A Katch Video Compilation with special snapshots and important lesson snippets I hope you enjoy 🙂

I have compiled all the videos thus far and I am in utter excitement from all the support and involvement of friends and loved ones! Thank you so much for your support, it means so much. As always, I’m honored that you take the time out of your schedule to join me or watch the broadcast on replay and share what we are learning together.
Remember, the freebie from the 5th day countdown session can be emailed upon request. I may provide downloads on this blog in the future, so keep visiting! Along with tips and tools that were shared on how we can engage in Bible Journaling together, I have included this Bonus video on you-tube with further information to help you on this journey. Please excuse the quality of some of the videos integrated in the compilation. This creation was challenging (A weekend’s worth of research and trial & error) due to the quality of the Periscope videos after download from the internet and the converting process to create and edit with iMovie on my iPad. I opted to let the videos remain for the messages that were enclosed and the value of what we have discussed so far.

Check out the strings of posts pertaining to this journey with #RadiantPearlinProgress
Here is what I came up with after a clean page was shared on Periscope tonight:

Be Radiant No Matter the Cost!

There is a story I’ll share tonight behind these photos my husband and I passed on our walking trail last week and I this morning.

Let’s have a talk and walk with Jesus this morning! This morning I arose with an even greater resolve to immerse myself in the Word and to learn more of what it means to be like Jesus! If our Christian walk in this world is meant to make us more like Christ, we can expect we will be rejected, misunderstood, criticized, mistreated, pushed around, all the horrible things us humans cringe from and at all cost! We, as Christians on the other hand must fight for what we believe in no matter the cost! Our advantage as a Christian is that we have hope than cannot be lost because Christ on our side! God is fighting for us! Thank you Jesus! We are made conquerors in Him!!! I am always reminded of this when I have a little walk and talk with Jesus. When I have opposition, Jesus shows me He is my defense!

I not only believe the lyrics of the song ministered by Darlene Zscech and entered as a link above, but every morning I make it a priority to read the Bible Verse of the day like so many others! I want to encourage you to make this a habit if you have not already began to do so. The YouVersion Bible Verse of the day always seems to relate to a situation I am going through or it ministers to my deepest heart desires in some way! That’s the Word of God for you, but more than that, I refuse to take a particular verse at face value on first glimpse, I must dig deeper! So I proceeded to do what is customary, read the entire chapter where that verse is taken from. Romans 8 is a powerful chapter of what life will be like in Christ as a CHRISTian! With headings like “Life Through the Spirit”, “Present Suffering and Future Glory” and “More Than Conquerors” How can you not be enthralled to read further and see what God meant for us to know through His Word.

We will delve into this together a little deeper tonight as our fast continues, and as we meet to pray about the kick-off to the Summer Reading Tour tonight by conference call. For convenience, here is our conference call line:

Conference Dial-in Number: (712) 432-1500
Participant Access Code: 1080543#

I believe, this Summer has already shaped up to be a most dynamic ministry filled summer. I love the people of God, my husband, home church, my family, those who support or do not support me because I still believe every person in and outside the body of Christ has been sent into my life for a beautiful purpose! In some way I intend to view every circumstance, even the not so pleasant ones as a means to draw me closer to Christ and His image. I love that this concept on the “Image of Christ” was brought forth a few times in the Word delivered yesterday in church.

Please read the verses with me highlighted below: (I believe this scripture speaks for itself, but every person, based on your past experiences and your present story of suffering, you’ll relate to this scripture differently with a great testimony that needs to be shared!  I’d love to hear from you!)

Present Suffering and Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that[h] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our heartsknows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Talk to you soon! With Radiant love and prayers,

Stacy Zant 🙂

A Beautiful Purpose

During these seven days of “Seeking His Face” I am praying the Lord will renew and revive His righteous passion within me. “But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I cried aloud to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy hill” Psalm 3:3-4

I am so grateful for this scriptural reminder that the Lord will protect us, He will cover us, He will sustain us and He will answer us! We have a great covering around about us when we trust and rely on the almighty. People may rise against us (Christians) as they did David but we have a powerful weapon of prayer, praise and perseverance.  Life is filled with many tests (whether they be spiritual, mental or emotional) but we must remember in whom we put our trust!

***The Lord has great plans for you right now so don’t allow anyone to make you feel or believe otherwise! While you continue on this worship filled journey, remember there is no one person the Lord cares more about than the other. He loves us all the same. People may treat you unfairly but you hold such great value and anointing. Keep close to Christ and your confidence will not be shaken! ***

As of last week, I am a year older and I have come to the realization that I am changing as I am learning. Thankfully, I am growing as I am experiencing life in all it’s beauty. I have come to terms with the fact that everyone’s journey is different and while we can learn from another person’s mistakes, we can learn from their triumphs too. However, be careful not to think that if you duplicate another person’s behavior you will get the same results. Jesus has a distinct purpose for each and everyone of us and a method to get us there. What may work for one person, may not work for another person, so it is important we take the the time to hear from the Lord for ourselves.

We live in a time and generation when we do not need to go to a priest to speak or hear from the Lord. How blessed we are! We are all His children and He is calling each and everyone of us to a deeper place in Him. Will you seek His face with me? 

I have learned from a number of friends recently who are experiencing many tests and trials and I want you to know you are not alone. My desire is to be transparent as I’ve been in the past with hopes that it will help someone along on their spiritual journey. As I study the heartbeat of God, I am encouraged. “Lord help us to be the sincere, soul searchers and winners you’ve always called us to be.”It’s not about doing (planning quality events) but being and making a quality difference in the lives of others, especially those who are misunderstood, sidelined and cast out for whatever reason.”

Here are a few notes I’ve jot down from my personal studies:

*Nothing and no one can take away what the Lord has placed inside of you. It may seem to be at bay (a standstill ) for a season, but please be sure it’s what the Lord wants for you, not man.

*Humans should not dictate where you should be spiritually, emotionally or otherwise. Seek the Lord’s perfect will and follow hard after Him.

*Let Jesus show you the way. Sometimes, you  have to fight your way through…the scripture did say we must be willing to take up the cross (Matthew 10:38) as a disciple of Christ. 

*When Jesus says to move, just move. Operate under the influence of Christ. He knows your heart when you are intimate with Him.

*Daily enter into communion with Christ. Let Him see if there be any wicked way in you and root it out. 

While you do all that, 

*Help others and if God has positioned you to do so, look for opportunities to help other people’s dreams become a reality.

*Sometimes when you choose a specific path or door there is no turning back, so be prayerful. You must first hear from God, discern and acquire His wisdom and make the decision to honor Him.

If there are any specific notes that minister to you, I would love to hear from you! please feel free to connect with me by email at stacy@anointedliving.org or leave a comment here. It would be an honor to learn more about you and be in prayer with other purposeful people of God or those who desire to be that as we move forward this new year. 

Words cannot express my excitement for what God is about to do. As I prepare to teach personal bible studies and students in the next month please pray with me: “Lord have your way!” 

Lots of love and prayers, 

Stacy Zant
