Acts 5:32

  And we are His (Jesus) witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) whom God hath given to them that obey Him. (KJV)

 

It is the presence of the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of us that empowers us to accomplish God’s will here on Earth. It’s the power of the Holy Spirit that enables us to destroy yokes and break curses. It’s the Holy Spirit that provides us with the strength and wisdom to manifest the supernatural works of God within our lives.

According to Peter and the other Apostles here in the book of Acts, the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey God. So Obedience is the key to receiving that power from on high.

There are many places in scripture where God told His servants, “DO NOT FEAR”. Fear is a feeling and we can’t control the feeling of fear, but we don’t have to allow fear to stop us from being obedient to what God says to do, even when we feel in-adequate in performing the pacific task.

See God knows our inadequacies, our inconsistencies and our weaknesses, so when we are willing to move by faith despite these things, we are actually giving God permission to allow the full power of the Holy Spirit to intercede on our behalf. So obey God rather than man, or fear. Trust in the gift of the Holy Spirit that dwells on the inside of each of us who are willing and obedient.

LOVE, GRACE, PEACE

Awake and Arise!!!

This is a piece from “The Ministry of Poetic Expressions” my book, my first published work. I pray that you are blessed by it!!!

 

Awake and arise, the night is far spent…                                                                                                             and the light of this world has already been sent.

The first time was over 2,000 years ago…                                                                                                          but ohhh…                                                                                                                                                          He’s coming back again, and the whole world will know…                                                                                    exactly who’s friend or foe.

So stay visual, watch with those spiritual eyes…                                                                                                 in times like these we must keep our eyes to the sky’s.

It’s time

Awake and Arise

For today is a brand new day…                                                                                                                          but remember, narrow is the gate, and straight is the way…                                                                              so don’t be led astay

By those who go wide left, or wide right…                                                                                                          God has called us as believers to lead them into His marvelous light

But we must first

Awake and Arise…                                                                                                                                             wipe the sleep from our eyes

And let’s go out and make today pay…                                                                                                              by giving somebody direction who don’t know the way

The harvest is ripe, it’s plentiful too…                                                                                                                  it’s the laborers that are few.                                                                                                              

See, this is not about our own righteousness or perfection…                                                                            but it’s all about Him who has given us His righteousness, through His death, and resurrection

This world need to see…                                                                                                                                    that it’s through His blood that we’ve got victory,

they need to see through us how to live this life while keeping our eyes locked on that Heavenly, Eternal prize…                                                                                                                                                                but saints of God, we must first

Awake and Arise.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

 

Two Systems!!!

There are two systems within this world. One system would be the system of this world. (the world’s system) Which is the way in which it’s followers think, move and operate. Then there is God’s system. Which is the way in which it’s follower’s think, move and operate. It is much easier to follow after the world’s system, for it is the way of the majority. It’s not easy to stand boldly in the minority, but the the Word of God asks us a question: If God be for us, then who can be against us? This mean, if we are in God’s will, then He is for us, and this position is ultimately better, despite the hurtful, and sometimes lonely feeling of being in the minority.

God’s word also tells us that we were all born sinners; simply put, we were born into this “world’s system”. Once we reach the point of accountability there is a choice that we must make. To remain in the world’s system, or not to remain in the world’s system? This is the question! The longer we remain in the world’s system, the harder it is to break those chains. The world’s system though it seems fun and exiting, will bring you nothing but lack of fulfillment and a lot of unnecessary baggage. It is at the realization of this fact that many of us are willing to submit and surrender to the calling of our Savior.

 

The choice to cross over from the world’s system, to God’s system is not always easy to make…those first steps are not always easy to take…but fear not, walk by faith and move for goodness sake.

 

I don’t know who this is for, but, The Spirit of the Lord is talking to you, telling you that now is the time to switch systems, now is the time to bundle up all of the damage that was done to you by the world’s system, and bring it to the Throne of God, then leave it all there. It’s time to trade in all those ashes that were left behind by the fallen, broken system of this world and receive God’s beauty. Receive God’s peace, His Joy, His comfort, His love, His grace and His strength, so you can continue following hard and standing strong for God’s system even when standing in the minority, because actually, with God, you are the majority.

Communication / Prayer

Communication is a key component in any relationship. This is true even in our relationship with our Heavenly Father. God wants constant, perpetual communion with us, His children. Communing with God is called prayer, and prayer “really” do change everything.

Expressing one’s self is not the only component in communication. Listening is just as, if not more important than speaking. So in our communication (prayer time) with our Heavenly Father we must be willing, not only to unload it all on Him, but also to sit still enough, and quiet enough to hear what the Holy Spirit has to sat to us. Sitting still and quiet before our God is key to hearing His still, small voice. Finding that still, quiet place is very important because it is much harder to hear that still, small voice of God when our mind’s are full of noise, confusion and clutter.

Luke 18:1 “K.J”

And He (Jesus) spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not faint.

When Faith Is In Opposision To Common Sense!!!

   Common sense is good, I have nothing against common sense until that sense which is common try to interfere with a mighty supernatural move of God. See, I serve A God who is not common at all. His ways are much higher than the ways of us human beings, His thoughts are much higher than our thoughts. My God new the ending before the beginning, meaning, simply put; His scope of view is much broader than mine.

   I do use common sense in most cases, but  when all that’s within me, all that’s around me and all that seems common, suggest that I go one way, but that still, small voice (Holy Spirit) deep down within, says go another way…it’s  the still, small voice that I’m striving to obey.

   This is “FAITH” and faith propels us past that which is common to man, into a whole new dimension. There are many story’s in the Bible where God used an uncommon method to bring about a victory to His people, or even an particular individual. One of my favorite would be found in the book “1 Samuel  chapter 17, where God uses an uncommon method to bring about victory to both, His people and His newly appointed King.  This is a popular story. God uses a young teenage boy and his slingshot to defeat an oversize fighting champion, a seasoned worrier.

God is the same yesterday, today and forever more, so He will bring about victory in my life and yours; every area, every aspect, but we must be willing to stand, move, speak and operate according to God’s perfect “will”, even if this mean that we must stand, move and operate alone for a season. God’s “will” is not always pretty, comfortable or fun, nevertheless, God’s “will” is always the BEST place to be, because He is always right there with us, offering His LOVE, COMFORT and PEACE. It’s this faith that will allow the supernatural, uncommon move of God to manifest within our lives.

So I encourage you to use common sense, but when that still, small voice speaks deep down within you, trust and obey…and if that voice speak in opposition to that sense which common, then you must walk away…and let common sense stay… right where it lay.

Walk by faith, not by sight!!! Free yourself, come outside that fence…you don’t have to be bound by the political correctness of,

Common Sense.
