Stop Complaining So Much!

October 2nd, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, here’s another short and direct devotional.  While praying this morning, the Holy Spirit pressed this heavily within my spirit.  Beloved,

Stop Complaining So Much!

Philippians 2:14 - Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

By complaining, you are sending a message to God that you do not believe He can change whatever it is.  If you know He can, why spend time griping and moaning about it? Could it be possible that the thing you are complaining about is not God’s will for you?  Hmmmm!

Lord, I Need You Right Now!

October 1st, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, today’s devotional will be short and direct.

  • Before you make another decision,
  • Before you attempt another assignment,
  • Before you put together another program,
  • Before you start your car in the morning,
  • Before you allow worry to consume your thoughts and your body,
  • Before you get upset when friends and family members betray you,
  • Before you allow the doctor’s report to discourage you,
  • Before you say, “I Do”,
  • Before you sign your name to another document,

Stop long enough to say …

 

Lord, I Need You Right Now!

God is available to assist us, but we must open up and let Him in!

Don’t Deny It, Receive It!

September 30th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My brother, my sister, have you started your day with a defeated mindset?  Are you already thinking defeat?  While praying this morning, I had to remind myself that God has not given me the spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).  Do you realize it is the Lord’s will for each of us to enjoy complete peace?  Peace in the midst of confusion and chaos.  Peace when no one else desires for us to have it.  Peace when things appear upside down.  Often times our days start out rocky, not because of attacks or traps, but sometimes it is because of us.  We speak ourselves out of open doors.  We discourage ourselves a lot!  We tell ourselves what we cannot have.  We pray and believe God for breakthroughs, but when they come we find a reason not to receive them.

Under the obedience of the Holy Spirit of God, I come to you to speak directly into your spirit.  Beloved, stop allowing your past mistakes to cause you to walk in fear.  Stop feeling as though past decisions will come back to haunt you.  Stop thinking because no one else in your family ever had it, you do not deserve it.  The devil is a liar.  What God has for you, is YOURS!  My friend,

Don’t Deny It, Receive It!

Stop allowing yourself to be a hindrance.  We can be our greatest roadblock.  We can be the very people, which stop us from enjoying all God has for us.  Sometimes it is not the enemy fighting you, it is you fighting you!

Check Yourself

September 29th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, have you become comfortable with life?  Have you stopped trying to learn more from the Lord?  Do you think you have arrived in life?  Have you become egotistical?  Have you forgotten to acknowledge the Lord in all you do?  Are you acting as if it is all about you?  Have you allowed people to put you on a pedestal and idolly worship you?  Have you forgotten Jesus and all He has done for you?  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know there are times when you feel as if everything and everyone is working against you.  You feel as if you are fighting opposition on every side.  The Lord is aware of your feelings.  However, I have been sent today to declare that today is the day for “SELF EVALUATION!”  Beloved, the Holy Spirit told me to tell you to …

CHECK YOURSELF!

The Bible declares in Matthew 7:1-5 - Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Today, before you judge someone else, before you condemn someone else, before you point out someone else’s faults, take a look at yourself!

Now Is The Time and This Is The Place!

September 26th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  How often do you stop and think about all the Lord has done for you?  How often do you meditate on the goodness of the Lord?  How often do you testify to others about the many things God has done for you?  How often do you reminisce about the mistakes you have made and how God continues to give you additional chances?  How often do you think and then thank the Lord?  So often in our lives, we spend most of our energy on matters that should not get much attention.  We spend more time gossipping about folks instead of encouraging them.  We spend time judging others instead of praying for them.  Do you realize out of all the things you have done wrong, the Lord still desires to use you?  There’s someone, somewhere in need of your testimony.  All that God brought you out of is not for you alone, but to strengthen someone else. 

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Many times people remain in hiding until after God has delivered them from what their going through.  No, no!  Even in the midst of what you are going through, God still wants you to witness to others.  No you are not perfect, but you should still be a witness of His goodness.  We are all still here because the Lord has seen fit to allow it.  Now is not the time for a pitty party.  Now is not the time to give the devil credit.  Now is not the time to run in fear.  Now is the time for you to stand boldly and speak the Word of God.  Now is the time to testify about the goodness of Jesus.  The Bible declares in Luke 19:40 - And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.   My friend, Now Is The Time and This Is The Place!  

My brother, my sister, why are you keeping the goodness of God to yourself?  Why are you allowing the world or the things of the world to keep you from proclaiming the promises of God?  If God has been good to you, why not tell someone?  The Bible declares in 1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  Beloved, we have made a lot of mistakes.  We have been places we should not have been.  We have done things we should not have done.  We’ve had traps set for us that the Lord exposed just in time. Now Is The Time and This Is The Place!  God has you right where He wants you.  You can run no more.  You can no longer do things your way.  It is time for you to put up or shut up.  What will it be?  My Prayer for You Today: Father, I pray that my brother/sister will realize how good You have been to him/her?  I pray (s)he will not give up but get up, in the name of Jesus … Amen!

God Is The Main Source!

September 25th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, what are you believing God for today?  What are you seeking from the Lord?  What have you been praying for?  Do you believe God can grant it unto you?  Do you believe God hears and answers prayers?  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Many times we pray to our God for things we deem important to us, but inwardly we are wavering in our faith.  You are 90% sure God can do it, but the other 10% still second guesses His abilities.  If you would be honest with yourself, you know there are times when you experience doubt.  Beloved, I want to tell you what the Spirit of God told me.  God can use anyone to bless you, but …

God Is The Main Source!

Whatever you are believing God for will only come by way of Him.  While it is true, God can use anyone or anything to bless you, it all starts and ends with the Lord.  Child of God, do not give up on what you are believing God for.  If it lines up with His will, you have the right to expect it.  The Bible declares in Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint

What You Need Comes From Above!

September 24th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place?  At this current point in your life you are stuck between two opinions.  Both sound good but you do not know which one to choose between.  If you commit to one, there is a chance it may be the wrong one.  What do you do?  How do you handle this situation?  Have you ever had people wanting to always give you advice?  “If it were me …” is the familiar line you always hear.  Out of no where you have advice specialist wanting to tell you what to do, how to do it and when to do it.  With a concern of disappointing others, you endure each person’s advice.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now? 

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do you realize while God has blessed each of us with family and friends, He never meant for any of them to replace Him in your life?  No matter how wonderful the advice sounds, if it does not line up with the Will of God you need not commit to it.  Often times we make the mistake of allowing others to force our hand.  Through their manipulations and intimidations we give in.  Understand this, any person who tries to force you to do anything is a witch (working for the devil.)  Any person who loves you and loves the Lord Jesus Christ should never try to force their will or advice on you.  My friend, What You Need Comes From Above!  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:33 - But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Before you say ‘yes’ to it, you need to make sure God has given His nod of approval. 

My brother, my sister, what decision are you preparing to make?  What question needs an answer right away?  Have you taken the time to consult the Lord about it?  If yes, have you waited to receive an answer?  If no, what are you waiting on?  Beloved, please understand, God is our Father and in being our Father, He desires to commune and fellowship with His children.  The Bible declares in  John 4:23 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  Child of God, What You Need Comes From Above!  No one else has what you need but the Lord.  I do not care how many promises people make, no one else has what you need but the Lord.  Seek Him now!  Prayer for Today: Father, I need Your help in __________.  Please tell me what to do.  In Jesus name … Amen!

Today Be Loosed!

September 23rd, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, do you realize there are so many Christians who are bound by the cares of this world?  They spend everyday trying to accumulate more and more things until they become consumed.  They want more and are not satisfied until they get more.  There are people who will manipulate, deceive and flat out lie in order to get what they want.  Do you realize God wants you to be blessed but He also wants you to have integrity?  If you take something from someone else that is not a blessing from the Lord, it is stealing.  Anything you have stolen or attempting to steal from someone else is not something you shout over.  No, no, no!  You are a thief and a robber.  What the Lord has for you is for you (Numbers 23:20). 

Beloved, today is your day to be free from coveting what your neighbor has.  Jealousy is a wicked demon.  It will cause you to do anything, hurt anyone, and behave anyway.  It will make you think something someone else has really belongs to you.  Not so!  God does not make any mistakes when He blesses His people.  If you did not get what you thought you deserved, do not think God made a mistake.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Child of God, Today Be Loosed!  The Bible declares in Matthew 16:19 - And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  It is the will of God for all of His people to be loosed from life’s burdens and heartaches.  It is time for you to be loosed from the mistakes you made several years ago.  As a loosed person, I can testify to you that being loosed is a wonderful feeling.  

Right now, in your life, who or what prevents you from being loosed?  What are you holding on to?  Who are you holding on to?  Why are you holding on to something or someone who keeps you from being loosed?  Today Be Loosed … IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!

As He Is, So Are We!

September 22nd, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  To be a Christian means we are Christ-like.  While we will never be Christ, each day it is our responsibility to become more like Him.  Using excuses as our scapegoat must cease.  Yes life is challenging.  Yes life can drop you to your knees.  Yes life can throw some of the worse things in your direction.  I know all of this to be true.  However, in spite of it all we are still responsible for the way we conduct ourselves as Christians.  Just because I know God is merciful does not mean I purposely commit sin.  Just because I know God’s love is able to reach the nastiest person does not mean I mistreat people.  Each day it is my duty to conduct myself in a manner that even unsaved and unchurched people recognize the presence of the Lord.  If we, the Christians, are leading the gossip sessions, how can we lead people to Jesus? 

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do you realize each and every day there are people, you know and people you do not know, watching you?  They may never know your name but their watching you.  They may never approach you and conduct a conversation, but their watching you.  I was raised to believe that wherever I go, someone, somewhere is watching me.  Many years later, I know this to be true.  We are ambassadors (an authorized representative or messenger) for Christ.  We are sent to be messengers.  My friend, As He Is, So Are We!  The Bible declares in 1 John 4:17 - Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.  No longer can I claim to be a Christian with my mouth, but behave devilish in my actions.  It is time for us to walk and talk the same message.  Whether people treat you right or wrong, we are commanded to love one another (1 Peter 1:22). 

My brother, my sister, are you reflecting Jesus Christ wherever you go?  Do you need to be in church in order for you to feel effective?  Can the unsaved see a difference in you or do you blend in with everyone else?  It is time for the body of Christ to stand up and be noticed.  We have hidden for far too long.  The world has strayed away from the Godly principles it was established upon and the body of Christ is afraid to stand for righteousness sake.  Beloved, As He Is, So Are We!  The Bible declares inRomans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  The Lord is seeking such a one who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24), … is that ‘one’ you?  My Prayer for You Today: Father, allow my brother/sister to walk in the boldness you pregnated within him/her.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Always Look Up!

September 19th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, do you realize we have been made in the likeness and image of our God (Genesis 1:26-27)?  Do you realize God birthed within you everything needed to make it from day to day?  While we depend heavily on our head knowledge and the things we have learned in school, there will always arise something in each of our lives when we will not have enough education to talk our way out.  God has blessed us with the gift of the Holy Spirit.  He has been sent to reside within us and provide divine guidance to each of us each day.  As long as we think we have things under control, we will never depend on the Holy Spirit.  As long as people make us feel we’re irreplaceable, we will always walk proud and arrogant.  Life has a way of knocking you to your knees.  It has a way of making the strongest man cry and the nastiest person humble.  

On this Christian journey, challenges will arise in each of our lives.  There will be times when we are faced with obstacles.  There will be times when everything appears to be chaotic.  As my Pastor would say, “you look right and there’s no help.  You look left and there’s no help.  You look forward and there’s no help.  You look backwards and there’s no help.  But when you look up you will always find help for whatever you are going through.”  (Psalms 121:1-2)  No matter how awful things appear today, Always Look Up!  The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  When the devil is at his greatest attack, God is at His greatest defense.  Nothing can come your way unless the Lord permits it to come.  Go forth today child of God.  You are on the winning side.  

Prayer for Today: Father, help me to always look up, even when things appear out of control.  You are able to handle whatever I am faced with.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!
