THE POWER IN LETTING GO!!!

Screenshot 2016-05-28 at 10.57.16 PM

Letting go of those things in which we love is never easy, but sometimes there is great power therein, see, without the Word and Spirit of God being saturated within, our hearts are most deceptive and will lead us into all sorts of sin.

Arrogance, selfishness and pride just to name a few, it takes the Word and Spirit of God to show us, about us, that which is ugly, that which is true.

So many of us miss out on God’s best for fear of giving up on our own dreams, our own will, our own way, so we move full speed ahead not seeking at all God’s face, nor listening at all to what He is trying to say, and it’s “only” when we find ourselves in that dark place that we choose to pray, when God wants continual, perpetual fellowship with His children in every situation, every circumstance, every hour, every minute, every second of each and every day.

Total surrender, total submission, letting go of our own desires, letting go of our own selfish ambition.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a prosperous plan for each of us, yet, we refuse to believe, we refuse to trust, when, to walk in God’s will, faith and trust is a must.

I’m not saying that to walk in God’s will is to walk trial and tribulation free, but through the storms we have an inner joy and peace, and spiritual eyes to clearly see.

We see that at the end of the tunnel there is a light, we see that our faith muscles are getting bigger and stronger with every fight, we see that despite all the opposition it’s still God’s will that true, God’s will that’s right.

We also see that it’s complete brokenness that propels God to show, we see that faithfulness to God’s will is what gives us that righteous glow, and of our own selves, we see,

YOU ARE!!!

space_shining_star_2114

You are a masterpiece fearfully and wonderfully created by our Creator, uniquely made for a purpose, so of no one, be an imitator.

 

Life may not be happening the way you thought it would, things may not be going the way you think they should,

 

but know, for your life, God still has a master plan, I know that the enemy has told you time and time again, that it’s over for you, you can’t do it, but God sent me to tell you, “YES YOU CAN”, because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are His, and He is yours, He is the way when closed are all the other doors,

 

Yeah, you’ve been through this, that and the other thing, though none of it was meant to take you out, but rather to give you a testimony, and a song of thanksgiving to sing.

 

Our God has been with you through it all, right there to lift you up again after every fall.

 

He’s extending His mighty right hand unto you even now, saying: get up one more time, while keeping your eyes stayed on “ME”, not on the mountain that you have yet to climb; because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are a jewel, a diamond in the rough, though, to get that polished shine is never easy, but indeed very tough.

 

All that you need is already on the inside of you, but the Holy Spirit is needed to shape it, mold it, and to bring it through.

 

So trust, and know that our God is just.

 

Through the sacrificial Blood of The Lamb you have the victory already, it’s not in your own will and plan, but in our Savior’s  will that you must walk, not perfectly but steady.

 

All of your life has been preparation for such a time as this, so arise to the challenges, so that, God’s divine purpose for your life, you won’t miss.

 

It’s your time to; through the Power of The Holy Spirit, shine like a star, it’s your time to show the world, it’s God’s child that,

 

YOU ARE!!!

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Coming Screenshot 2016-04-05 at 11.59.55 PM Through

 

Believe that you are coming through this hot and dry season, it may not be fun, it may not be easy but it is all for a reason.

Your being prepared for that place of purpose, that place of destiny, from all the bondage your being loosed, you’re being set free, and free indeed.

The Spirit of God is with you every step of the way, so know that you’re not alone, our God is still on His throne, He’s shaping, molding you more and more to be here on earth, Jesus’ clone.

The game is already won, through the perfect, sinless life, death and Resurrection of our Heavenly Father’s only begotten Son.

The ultimate sacrifice that He made, the path to victory that He laid, even when victory seems non-existent, or delayed,

remember, you’re just,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Going through the wilderness to reach that place of promise is sometimes a must, despite the pain and discomfort, remaining in God’s will is the best place in the whole wide world to be and in that, you can trust, even when it seems as though your dreams, your plans has turned to dust.

Father knows best, He is “LOVE”, He is “TRUTH”, and He has invited the weary to come to Him so He can give us rest, so keep your eyes stayed on The Lord and you “WILL” past this test.

Our Lord will not leave you in this place, so you can keep your faith, know that God is there even when you can’t hear His voice, or see His face.

God the Father, His only begotten Son and His Holy Spirit is using even this to make you whole, make you new, it’s to His will, His word that We are to remain true, knowing that, in the mighty name of Jesus, “WE ARE”,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Where Is The Love?

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture. Thou shall love thy neihbor as thyself, ye do well.

Roamans 13:10

Love worketh no ill to his neihbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Ephesians 5:2

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacriice to God for a sweet smelling savour.

Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you. Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you.

Matthew 24:12

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Galations 5:6

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availith anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

Colossians 2:2

That their hearts might be comforted being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of uderstanding, to the acknowlegement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ.

1 Thessalonians 1:3

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father.

Deuteronomy 6:5

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Where Is The Love?

I can hear, with my ear the word love being tossed to and fro, this love that I can hear, so clear, is not seen though, I’ve looked high and I’ve looked low. Where is it?

Where Is The Love?

I’m talking genuine, agape, this love that’s felt and seen through what we do, not just heard in the words that we may say, when it seems to be no other, this is the love that says; together, we “CAN” make a way, but where is it?

Where Is The Love?

What I see, are hearts that are cold and emty, hearts that are bound but beleive that their free, selfish hearts, unforgiving hearts, hearts that are void of empathy, so I ask;

Where Is The Love?

Love was sent to us from the Heavens above, and this took place over 2,000 years ago, yet, on today we act as if we just don’t know, I’ve searched high, I’ve searched low, where did it go?

Where Is The Love?

I know that it’s still here because Jesus is Love, and He left a remnent before ascending into the Heavens above, but I can’t find it so I cry out;

Where Is The Love?

The word of God tells us that this world is to see “Him” through the way that we as beleivers are to love one another, then the word of God ask a question: how can we love God whom we have not seen, if we can’t love those who we do see, our sister and our brother? I ask again;

Where Is The Love?

This question is not so much for those outside of the body of Christ, because they simly don’t know, but this question is for those of us who are within, for we are supoosed to show, it was once here, but where did it go?

Where Is The Love?

Through faith in Christ I know that this genuine, selfless, agape love will reveal it’s pretty face again real soon, then this entire corupt and loveless world will begin to dance to a brand new “LOVE” tune. Until then I’ll continue crying out to my Lord above, asking;

Where Is The Love?

Next Chapter!!!

This present chapter of my life has been very long, and full of pain…strong winds and heavy rain…it was only the grace of my God that kept me from going insane.

Finally, I can see relief…but not without one last stagger backwards caused by a blow from the murderer, the destroyer, the thief.

The enemy may think that he has won this war…ohhhh, but little does he know, there’s so much more…in store.

Yeah, I’m walking away naked and bare…but with victory, because I’m walking away, and in the face of Jesus I continue to stare.

All that the enemy has stolen from me in this chapter he can surly have, because my future, he can’t touch…what my God has revealed to me about Himself in this chapter has been much…I pray for Jesus to reveal Himself “MIGHTILY” to “ALL” those who think He is just a crutch.

Though I would not want to go through this again, I thank God for allowing this season…I’ve learned so much already, but only time will reveal the full purpose and reason.

Despite the pain and confusion in this chapter there’s still so much that I’ve been working toward…one foot in front the the other is the only way to move forward.

Old things has passed away, behold, all things becoming new…it’s to my destiny and God’s purpose that I vow to remain true.

I won’t be destracted by the enemy, a.k.a.the great destractor…I’m walking out of the old straight into this,

Next Chapter!!!

Against All Odds!!!

The chips were stacked against me…all I had was a cloudy vision of my destiny,

un-educated, and I had no real plan…I even put my faith in me, and in man.

I tried that, and I tried this…now I stand here today…and I say…it was all amiss.

Chasing after successs…while putting my soul in a deeper and deeper mess.

Trying to obtain all the things that this world told me I could…trying to get all that they say I should.

I walked by sight, not by faith…thinking that it was my way that would usher me into that destined place…not knowing that I was getting further and further behind in this race.

I thank my God, because He didn’t allow Jesus to come, “just” for those who have everything together…those who are already standing strong in the midst of the rough weather,

but rather Jesus came to set captives free…those who’s chips are stacked against them, those like me…He came for those who are blind, but really want to see.

My Lord and Savior came for those of us who are fighting;

Against All Odds!!!

If this is you too…don’t be discouraged by your situation; know that God is faithful and true.

My God chooses those of us who are tore-up…from the floor-up so He can get the glory…from our story.

If you’re already a “Made” man…then people will think that it’s all you-your will, your plan.

Nine times out of ten this you won’t deny…because you forget that your blessings come from Him who sits in the Heavens above the sky.

It’s the struggle in the storm of dust…that bring us to the point where we “KNOW” it’s in God that we can trust.

It’s not profitable to despise where you are, or the things that come against you…know that with you…God is not through.

In the word of God He didn’t just use men of high degree…but rather, He used men who were below average, average, or just plain ordinary…like you, and like me.

I encourage you today, don’t get impatient when waiting on the “ONE” True God and turn to other false god’s…”STAND”  knowing that God is preparing you even now to win;

Against All Odds!!!

Back Roads!!!

In our journey of following Christ, He often leads us into a detour. Off of the brightly lit highway where there’s fellow trvelers and activity all around, straight into the back roads of life.

The back roads is where there’s darkness, isolation and quietness. Though the back roads may seem a little scary at first, it’s a great place to be, because it’s these very conditions that awakens our faith.

See, it’s on the congested, fast pace highways of life that we are easily destracted, we lose focus, we grow weary, and our Lord know our frgile state of existance; so He does what He does best, which is divinely intervene on behalf of His children.

Our Heavenly Father sends us on a back road detour, where we must apply our bright lights, (which is the word of God). He removes us from the congested, fast pace of the highway so that we can find that place of rest and peace, that many times, we didn’t even realize we needed.

It’s then that we are able to hear that still, small voice of God clearly saying: This is the way, walk ye in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:21. So don’t despise the seasons in your life when God sends you down a back road detour, but rather embrace the oppertunity to sit peacefully and quietly in the presence of our Lord.

You may be suprised at how you are able to move and navigate through the traffic and congestion once back on the highway, through the insite that was given to you on that dark, quiet, isolated back road detour.

Back Roads!!!

LOVE…GRACE…PEACE…

The Home of The Brave, The Land of The Free!!!

United States of America, the home of the brave, the land of the free. Super power we were but that title is slipping away from us. This was never a perfect country, but it was a country that was built on Biblical principles. For the most part we were a Christian nation.
We were a nation who sought after God, a nation who reverenced God, a nation who called upon the one and only true God in times of trouble, and God was with us. More people believed in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ than not, therefore we were a blessed nation. Not a nation without problems, not without growing pains, but God’s hand was upon us and we were blessed indeed.
I’m not talking about just financial,monetary blessings, I’m talking about God’s favor and protection. It’s this favor and protection, along with the monetary blessings that has made us here in the good ol’ U.S. of A, arrogant, thinking that we have accomplished our victory’s all on our own, without God’s divine intervention.
The enemy has pulled the cover over our eyes, yes, we have been deceived. We think that with all of our wealth and prosperity that we are moving forward, but in all actuality we’re moving backward.
The moral values that we once stood strongly upon are now a thing of the past. There is very little value in the thing that we are to value most, which is human life.
In times of old, when our country faced trials and tribulations, it was that mustard seed faith in God as our higher power that delivered that sense of hope unto us. So when God is being removed, slowly but surely, out of our world view, where then does our hope come from?
I guess this is why I can clearly see the look of hopelessness on so many faces, and actions that can only manifest through a hopeless mind, heart and spirit.
The United States of America is moving further and further away from our Lord, and this is why we’re living in such perilous times, times where there truly is spiritual wickedness in high places, times when what’s right seems wrong, and whats wrong seems right to most people.
Call me old fashioned, square, out of touch; call me what you will, but my hope and faith still lie in my Almighty God and His word.
Psalm 33:12 reads as such: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.
2 Chronicles 7:14 states: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

LOVE, GRACE, PEACE

Faith, Boldness & Courage

Faith, boldness and courage will set us up for possisions far beyond our wildest dreams. Their are four friends of mine who has long passed over from this life into the next, but still give me inspiration and encouragement whenever I need to stir up some courage, or be reminded of how faithful our God is. My four friends names are: Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, then there’s Daniel.

These four young boys were removed from there homeland and brought into a foreign land as slaves. These young men remained faithful to our God through very harsh circumstances and conditions, and God’s mighty hand of favor rested heavily upon them, so much so, that the other men of that land were very jealous of these boy’s. These men were so jealous that they conspired to use the faithfulness of these boy’s to their God, to set them up to be killed.

See, the King saw Daniel’s Godly wisdom from the very start and he promoted Daniel, while Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego where left to work the field. Nevertheless, God’s mighty hand of favor was upon then as well. So the men of that land went to the King and deceived him into signing a law stating that every person in that land must bow down to worship a statue of the King himself for 30 day’s, or be thrown into a fiery furnace. Well these men already knew that these three boys would not bow down to worship none other than God our Father.

When these wicked men saw these boy’s not bowing to worship the statute, they ran to tell the King. Now it is what these boy’s says to the King once they’re brought before him that just exites my spirit. Just listen to this: “IF IT BE SO, OUR GOD WHOM WE SERVE IS ABLE TO DELIVER US FROM THE BURNING FIREY FURNACE, AND HE WILL DELIVER US OUT OF THINE HAND, O KING, BUT IF NOT, BE IT KNOWN UNTO THEE, O KING, THAT WE WILL NOT SERVE THY god’s, NOR WORSHIP THE GOLDEN IMAGE WHICH YOU HAVE SET UP. ” “WOW” 

I don’t know about you, but that boldness and courage of speach really stirs something on the inside of me. Well these boy’s were thrown into the firery furnace, and when the King went to look inside the burning firery furnace he saw not just the three boy’s that he had ordered into the furnace, but he saw a fourth man whom he said looked like God. So he called the young boys forth out of the hot hot furnace, “which should have been burned to ashes by the way” but they came forth without even the smell of smoke on them.

Well this gave the ol King a change of heart, and this is what he said: “blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent His angle, and delivered his servants that trusted in Him, and have changed the King’ s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god except their own God”. Then the King made a law against anyone who spoke amiss against the God of these three boy’s, then, the three boy’s were promoted.

My friend Daniel’s story is very simular, but he was thrown into a lions den. You will have to go to the book of Daniel chapter 6 in the Holy Bible and read that for yourself. You will be blessed by it. You can also check out this story of Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and the firery furnace in the book of Daniel chapter 3.

I speak faith,boldness and courage over your life on today!!!

LOVE, GRACE, PEACE
