As Promised – The Great Forsake and Take

My beloved Sisters,

Thanks is too small a word for the privilege to serve you. You are graces of a merciful God to me. How I pray God revealed Himself to you in an intensely personal way today. Here is the equipping that I promised in the simulcast to those who are ferociously ready to forsake fear and take courage. You will find a cover sheet for your notebook, a letter from me suggesting how to use the resource, and enough verses to keep you well immersed for a good while. They are life and liberty to any of you who, like me, have battled a stronghold of fear but they are also vastly useful when you are facing a temporarily intimidating or frightening situation, like surgery or a speech in front of your class or a hard conversation requiring you to speak the truth in love. It doesn’t matter what circumstances are tempting you to fear and to shrink back from your faith and your calling, you are invited and even commanded by God to take much courage. It is your right of daughtership, “for you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [and daughters!], by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’” (Romans 8:15)

By all means, you are welcome to openly share this link with anyone else who could use this kind of equipping, whether or not they joined us for the simulcast.

Stay in the Word, Sisters! You are chosen and loved by the sovereign King of all creation and the calling on your life demands power and insight that only He can bring. Trust Him. He cannot do you wrong.

Christ is life,

    I cannot put into words what your ministry means to me. The last to times I have heard you speak have been so spiritual. It is like God gave you a message for me. God is working in my life during a very difficult time and is using you as part of it. You have touched my life and helped me grow in Christ so very much. You, the Praise Team,Living Proof Ministries, and LifeWay are all in my prayers. You are letting God use you to change people’s lives mine included. Thank you so much.
    I can’t believe how strong the Holy Spirit was in me, in my house viewing the simulcast alone but it was. I was on my face during the prayer sobbing. You are an answered prayer.

    I am speechless at the moment. I will have to process what I heard and felt. I was so encouraged from the very beginning when you revealed the topic and the prayer coverage. It felt like a mighty thing was about to happen, a “funny feeling in my stomach” as Jackson said. I have been pleading with Jesus in the last couple of weeks for a breakthrough in my Spirit. I have felt the enemy has stolen something from me and I’ve begged for a stronger faith. My prayers were confirmed in so many ways, especially during your prayer, Beth. Thank you! May there be a great revival among us!!

    Karen says:

    Wow. What a simulcast. I can’t even put into words what I experienced. During the break this afternoon, my heart was so heavy, I so desperately wanted a touch from the Lord. I sat and listened. Then I felt I needed to escape, I left the room but I could not stay away and was drawn back in….must have been the Spirit. I journaled my heart to the Lord, tears flowed, such fear prevailing my life now and for my future. I have lost the adventure of Jesus (because of fear and unbelief) and shrunk to living the explainable human life. You prayed over me and I felt the Holy Spirit come over me, I have new hope and faith in Jesus. I am expecting for faith to come back into my faithfulness. I will be printing the fear verses and claiming them. I have such renewed hope and excitement that God hears me, loves me, has not forgotten about me and wants to use me!

    Thanks Beth! God used you in a MIGHTY way today and it will be a day I will NOT forget how the Lord worked in my life!

    God is good and worthy of my praise!

    Thank you for praying for me sister. That was the most heartfelt , passionate prayer. You are a gift from God. I was an individual looking at the simulcast but I sure didn’t feel like one. Can’t wait until next year! I am praying for you too.

    Arlene says:

    Thank you Beth for speaking the Lord’s Word to us today.
    He used it to bring life and joy back into my heart as after a few years of quiet but difficult service He’d asked of me, there have been months of loneliness, the Enemy sucking the joy from me. My heart is revived and I thank Him for it!

    Jan says:

    Dear Beth – how blessed I was today through your teaching – I truly sensed the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart as you prayed. We are doing a Bible Study by Kay Arthur, “Lord, Teach Me to Pray” and I can’t tell you how much the teaching today will enhance this study. I long to know God more – to pray expecting and I am so excited to be able to share some of this with our ladies in the study. Your grandbaby stories so touched my heart too – I have 5 grandchildren and am so blessed through them. Also, over the years, I’ve taken many of your studies and God has always grown me tremendously through them, but I’m excited to grow more and more. Thank you for your ministry and for Travis and the Praise Team – how awesome this day was in the Lord.

    Siesta Mama,
    Thank you for your obedience to God to deliver another powerful message. It spoke to my heart as a continuation of the SSMTII celebration – my “church dirt” is right where I can see it. The lid is off – a revival has begun.

    In the Precious Name of Jesus, Amen!!

    Kathy Wilshire says:

    Thank you, Beth, for allowing God to use you in our lives. I came today, not even knowing for sure what I needed from God, just knowing I needed something. My quiet times have been stale lately, just something to check off my mental “to do” list and to keep me from feeling guilty. Thank you for awakening in me that hunger to be TOTALLY consumed by Him and to truly be used by Him in a BIG way.
    You are a blessing,

    emi says:

    Thank you so much! I struggled what to do today. I so wanted to hear the Word and know He spoke to me. He did. I thank you for the scriptures to forsake fear and take courage. Fear has numbed me to move on. I was reminded “O my soul, march on…the battle is the Lord and I will not fear.” Thank you again!

    Andrea D says:


    I’ve done several studies with you and in each, I learn something. But this was my first simulcast and not only did I learn something, I felt something. In my heart, in my bones, in my soul, I felt. From the opening worship songs alone, I felt the Holy Spirit close my throat and pour out my eyes… And by the time the break for prayers came, I had gratitude coming out of my eyes, streaming down my face. Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice and your never-ending faithfulness. Thank you, Beth, for being a faithful servant, sharing the Lord’s love for us.

    Kelly says:

    Thank you God – Thank you Beth, Travis and Team! I needed this so badly. I am in a season of loss and discovered today that I have been “just living” and being the good girl. I want more. I want everything God has for me! I want to live in the supernatural per vision of God. I want to be unrecognizable to myself and have God shine through me. Thank you so much!!!

    Thank you for continually chasing after our Father and grabbing our hands so that we can join along while parts of our individual adventures merge for a time! You encourage me so! May each of us allow God access to finish the work He has begun in us. I know you love me through Christ~I love you, too!

    Thank You Lord. It was absolutely beyond what I needed to hear. I was not going to purchase a ticket, due to limited funds. But He provided me a way, and it couldnt have been a more timely message

    Denise says:

    God is up to something. Our summer bible study we just finished NO OTHER GODS by Kelly Minter. We discussed fear every week. We are starting Believing God this Thurs. I have already done it but apparently I have not crossed over completely into my promised land. Thank you for being used by our HOLY GOD!

    I received such a blessing as did the other women in the church with me. I love your candidness and humor. So how do you recommend that I get the carpet fibers out of my nose? teehee.

    Beth, LPM and Lifeway,

    THANK YOU for an amazing day with God! I watched the simulcast from my home and it was a wonderful blessing. I am trying to kick a flu bug today but spending the day with you all made me feel SO much better!

    I even shared the last session with my 10 year old daughter. We sang together, laughed together and prayed together…priceless.

    God is so AWESOME! Blessings to you all. I am looking forward to more from God!

    Your Sister in Christ,

    Your word today at the simulcast was perfect timing for me. I renewed my faith today. During the prayer you prayed over “one sister” I was in tears prompted by the Holy Spirit freeing me up! Bless you and your ministry.

    Jan Tromblee says:

    How wonderful, dear sweet sister in Christ. You are such a blessing and Oh, I so basked in God’s presence, and set my heart to receive all He had for me today. Thank you so much for giving of yourself so completely. You are truly a blessing. Is there anyway to get a copy of the prayer you prayed over me today? Also, the lyrics to “I came broken to be mended————“?
    God bless you richly,

      Susan says:

      Hi Jan the lyrics are to the song “Just as I am” with the chorus changed to the following. Wonderful life breathing words be blessed I know I am.

      “I come broken to be mended I come wounded to be healed
      I come desperate to be rescued I come empty to be filled
      I come guilty to be pardoned by the blood of Christ the Lamb
      And I’m welcomed with open arms, praise God, just as I am.”

    INCREDIBLE day getting to view the simulcast! Thank you Beth & your team for allowing God to speak through you! THANK YOU FOR BEING REAL & being an encourager! I printed out my scriptures from your blog & I’m speaking them OUT LOUD! THANK YOU sister!

    Angela says:

    My Dear Sister,

    Thank you for praying for me!! I receive it and claim it from almighty God!!! What a word is an understatement.
    Was so worth the sleepless night so I would be up for when it started ( 6:30am AZ time)

    I decided when I registered, to put my all into it. And I am so so glad I did, Jesus showed up BIG!!!
    How my thirsty soul was soaking up all that the Lord had for me and this season in my life.

    Having just been healed in the mighty name of Jesus 2 weeks ago from a rare heart problem that lasted for 2 1/2 years and all that it involved, ( had the funeral plans going) God let me know He is not done with me yet.
    By His grace, before I was healed I started a Women’s group Bible Study right here in my little living room…

    Said all that to say, God is so good, He knows what we need, and spoke through you and led you as the vessel to once again touch my life.

    Thank you for staying in the fight, being so transparent, and staying true to your calling and The Word!!

    Praying safe travels home for the whole team, and Blessings on you and your families!!

    Oh it kills me to have missed the Simulcast! Is there anyway to purchase a copy of it??? So so happy for all who were blessed by it today!!!!

      Carrie says:

      I was thinking the same thing, Kim! I missed it because I was caring for my infant at home while my husband had to work. From everyone’s comments, I am so disappointed that I didn’t even just log on for a little bit in between her nap time.

    Dear Beth and Family,
    What a pleasure to sit in the comfort of my home and watch today’s simulcast. What a wonderful gift! Oh how I wish I had a transcript of the prayer you closed with. It is worth repeating over and over again. Worth carrying in my purse forever.
    May God shine His Face upon you and yours.
    My best always. Laura

    Just got home from being on a team for the simulcast. Thank you for the awesome word. You are amazing!!Christ through you, I know!!lol It is exactly like you said, I don’t step out on faith because I don’t want to be disappointed. Well I pray that I will keep this word fresh and get out of my comfort zone. Step out on faith and face my fears!!
    Thank you for the fear not booklet.

    Thank you for delivering what God so mightily put on your heart! I’ve never experienced a simulcast before and have never heard you speak before either! I was more than blessed and left the event with new resolve to leave the fear behind and reach out in faith!

    Thank you, Siesta Momma, you brought the Word today! I walked into the simulcast downcast and desperate and I walked out telling myself to forsake bitterness and take peace, joy, LOVE. You rock, Ms. Beth! Thank you for being an open vessel. You are loved here in Oswego, NY!!!!

    Kim Boonstra says:

    What a blessing today was! I especially love the verse: “The Lord speaks and many, many women spread the Good News!” Psalm 68:11
    This week, Thursday, at our church, First Baptist church of Middleville, we will be kicking off our women’s ministry “Refining Graces.” Revival is something our pastor’s wife has been praying for in the lives of our ladies for years. Her desire, along with everyone on the “committee”, is for every woman of our church to be involved in some type of ministry in our church. A dozen ladies attended today’s simulcast and last week we had 50 ladies between our 2 “Daniel” Bible studies. I believe that God is going to do a great work in the lives of the women in our church!!

    My Dearly Beloved Beth Moore…

    “Let Me Tell You Somethin…
    You Are As Good As It Gets!!!
    I Got Me Some Jesus Today!!!”.

    Do I sound like someone you know? You truly are as good as it gets here on this earth. You touched my soul today in a way you never have before…and you have seriously touched my soul before…Esther, Breaking Free and Daniel.

    I feel incredibly blessed to have you woven into my life and desperate, desolate, thirsty path of faith.

    Your prayer was for me. If you spoke to no other (and I pray and know that not to be true)…you were praying over me. Every word, every syllable, every intonation, every passionate breath you produced moved my heart and tore through my soul.

    You truly are My Beloved. The credit is His but I hope you feel the full throttle depth that I feel every time I have heard you speak or share that greetly in text.

    Thank You for Today…for giving of All Of Yourself to us! Thank You and Praise to your Amazing worship team…Travis took me to my knees!

    Candy kagan says:

    Dear sweet Beth, I so love Christ in you! I am amazed at how He works through you to speak to me. Thank you so much for being an open jar to minister to those of us who so need to hear the truth spoken. I so enjoy your studies and am currently hosting the James study in my home. WOW, what a powerful message . Thank you for all you do for the woman all over this world, helping us to have a better understanding of God’s truth and who we truly are in Christ. I just left your simulcast today and the Lord blessed my socks off through you. Thank you for being one of the many, many women who are spreading the Good News! I have been inspired and encouraged from the Word spoken today. I pray blessings and rest upon you. Thank you again my sweet sister.
    Much love to you,

    Today, you gave me my joy and purpose back, God gave you the message for me to hear and release my fears that have held me back, your openness and honesty made your message easy to recieve and your prayer cut to the core of where my fear was hiding. Thank you, Thank GOD, can’t wait to see who I will be! One day you will get the urge to dance and it will be my praise reaching you!

    Beth, I loved the simulcast today. I was attending the event from Lumberton, NC and can’t wait for next year. I just have one question. I’m totally blind and can’t get the booklet. Is there any way I could get it put onto a CD? Thank you so much!

    Dear Sweet Beth,
    Thank you so much for the breathe of fresh air that fills my soul with the mighty, loving power of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ…a walking, talking miracle!
    God is so faithful and I am taking all my fears, my self-centerness and bondage and laying it at His feet.
    I desperately need Him and pray He will use me for His glory.
    Shalome-Good-by…and I am running to Jesus. I need Him and yes, I sometimes feel like that little child sitting in her mother’s lap and not knowing how or what is the right formula and keep searching. So, maybe I can rest my case and trust God to do anything…whatever He wants in my life with His power and presence. Praising His Name.
    Thank you for all He has done.
    He is our King
    Our Comforter has come
    Magnify His name
    Live for His glory
    Let Him tranform Your life
    Let Him breathe into you new life
    Let Him heal you
    Silently sit
    in His presence as He speaks
    Let Him cover over you
    As You begin to worship
    Give Him all of you
    and leave everything behind
    For He is worthy
    He is our treasure
    He is the faithful One.

    Linda says:

    Thank you LPM! I lost my job of 5 years yesterday. I didn’t know if I could do this today, but I did. I knew God would give Beth the words to say to me, and He did and she did. I don’t know where God is leading me, but I do know it will be good. Beth, you praying over me today, leaves me without words. May the entire team be blessed by God more than there are stars in the sky.
