The Power of Being Real

be real blogAuthenticity. We hear a lot about that these days don’t we? I see a movement beginning. We have “reality shows”, which may or may not be very realistic, more people are insisting that we stop editing models pics to the point where an unattainable illusion is presented. There is a cry emerging from the people saying “stop lying to me!!!!”.

This is affecting many areas of society. We have franchises such as Chipotle rising to the top and if I had to guess why I would say it’s because of the simplicity of realness and honesty. They took it back to basics with REAL simple ingreadients.

Lot’s of people write me to tell me they love me because I’m so real down to earth. Ironically that’s also the same reason that other people say bad things to me and send me mean mail. To them my realness is just a little too much, and they would prefer a more refined and polished version of me. That’s the real kicker though, isn’t it? I could put up a facade, pretending to be who I think the most people will approve of, and there will still be people messaging me their disapproval. Seems to me like it saves a lot of time and effort to just be real.

Many people do not love themselves and so they live a life of copy cat. They want to be someone else because they do not realize that the person they already are is amazingly beautiful. Every person God created is beautiful in a different way.

You are like the hose that the fire fighters use to put out fires. God is like the fire hydrant, and His power is the water. That’s pretty amazing really, because we can all be a channel for God to lavish the power of His love on the world around us. But when we are busy putting up a show, pretending to be someone else, not embracing who God created us to be…. It’s like we’re putting kinks in our hose.

This is a really big deal. 

There is a move of God in the earth that ONLY YOU can fulfill…. Because there are people who will only understand a certain concept just the way you can describe it…. Because there are people in your sphere of influence who are really going to “get” the deeper truths of God’s love, the way only you can explain/show it.

Authenticity is a really big deal. Loving yourself for who God created you to be… it’s a really big deal.

I want you to begin to ask God what He loves about you. Don’t worry… Don’t fret… Just ask Him and then listen. Do not disregard what He shows you in your imagination as you’re listening. Just let His words wash over you as you accept His love of you. Do this regularly and begin to accept who you are.

You are God’s creation. Don’t try to pretend to be someone else. If you do, you’ll be wasting time and energy putting up that fake image, and there will STILL be people who don’t like you.


A word by Dana Jarvis

I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.

Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!

You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.

However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”

I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!

My name is Amber Picota. I am a wife, pastor, published author, and mother of 3 amazing children. My husband and I moved to Virginia 3 years ago with a dream placed in our hearts by God to plant a life giving church. That church is Streams of Life Church in Winchester, Virginia. I married a crazy guy. And by crazy I mean ridiculously awesome and handsome. I see that he has stolen my heart taken me far out of my comfort zone, and shook me out of a life of complacency. Seriously, had I not met this wild man, I wonder if I wouldn't still just be living in a tiny little town, in my tiny little world, caring nothing for the big world out there, content to just not have anybody rock my boat. But then Rene came along... rocking my boat and such. I'm so glad he came along and shook things up. He awakened something within me, and now we're a dangerous combination of boat rockers. Together, through our authority in Christ, we are a force to be reckoned with: rocking boats, challenging the status quo, planting this church, and believing God for the miraculous. Together we bring heaven to Earth. My kids are awesome little world changers, and it's my pleasure to teach them and train them up in the Kingdom of God. I believe they are history makers, who were born for greatness, and I plan to train and disciple them accordingly. Who knows where God will take it from there, but I am passionate about training leaders to walk in power and authority. I have a desire to see the Body of Christ bring heaven to Earth. I have a desire to mobilize God's people into their dreams. There is a move of God inside of every believer, but most people have been stifled and silenced by dream killers. I want to stir those dreams back up because I believe those dreams are your move of God in the Earth.
