Have You Stopped Pursuing?

July 24th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever felt like giving up on life and all the demands that come with it? After all you have done, it still seems as though things have not gotten better for you. You treat everyone well, but storms still knock on your door. You pray for those who despitefully use you, yet the attacks continue to mount against you. You always offer words of encouragement to those around you, but when you need them the most there are no words coming your way. Have you ever wondered why you keep going when everyone else has given up? When you started out, you were surrounded by people and things. As the journey continued many people did not. You went from being in the crowd to being all alone. Have you ever been there? Are you there now? 

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. I know how it feels to want to give up on your ministry, your life, your goals and your future. I know how it feels to have more questions than answers, more problems than solutions, and more haters than supporters. Quitting is easy, but fighting can be very difficult at times. In spite of these times, I also know how it feels to know God has not forgotten about me. The same God who keeps me on His mind, is the same God who keeps you on His mind. My friend, Have You Stopped Pursuing? Have you allowed the cares of life to weigh you down. The Bible declares in Philippians 3:13 - Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

My brother, my sister, what are you dealing with today? What dilemma do you find yourself in the midst of? Have you allowed your job, your bills, your enemies, your family members and friends to overwhelm you? Beloved, no matter how awful things appear at this point in your life, you must not lose your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is during the tough times of life that you will see the hand of God moving on your behalf. The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Have You Stopped Pursuing? Have you thrown in the towel? Have you walked away from the assignment God anointed you for? If so, repent and return. If you are thinking about it, seek first the kingdom of God. If no, hold on things will turn for the better. Prayer for Today: Father, please help me hold on when things become hectic. Help me see You in everything. In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Are You In Need of A Tune-Up?

July 23rd, 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, may I ask you a question?

Are You In Need

Of A Tune-Up?

Have you allowed yourself to go on without receiving proper check-ups? Have you allowed yourself to become overwhelmed by the daily demands? Have you forgotten how to take time to rest and relax? Have you become so busy that you are no longer operating according to God’s plans? Have you become occupied with church work (routine services, traditional programs) until you have forgotten about the work of the church (leading people to Jesus)? Has your spirit stopped being willing? Have you forgotten Jesus in all that you do?

Today you must find out if you are overdue for your next tune-up!

Are You …?

July 22nd, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. When was the last time you told someone about the goodness of Jesus Christ? When was the last time you testified about the many wonderful things God has done for you? When was the last time you thanked the Lord for being there for you? When was the last time you did what the Lord said without trying to negotiate or bargain? When was the last time you opened your Bible and read God’s Word? When was the last time you replaced your complaining with praise? When was the last time you said “Yes!” to God’s will and “No!” to your flesh? Many times in life, we become bombarded with life’s daily demands. We find ourselves overwhelmed with daily tasks that pull us further and further away from what really matters. Have you ever been there? Are you there now? 

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. When was the last time you rebuked yourself from thinking God owed you something? I know it is easy to get caught up on “you” but be not deceived. This is not about you. This is all about the Lord Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:17). Allow me to ask you a very serious question. My friend, Are You truly on the Lord’s side? No matter what happens, are you truly committed to serving the Lord? Come what may, are you willing to stand on the Word of God? The Bible declares in James 1:8 - A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. There are so many people who desire to serve the Lord with stipulations. These are the people who say, “Lord I will do this, if you do this!” This Christian journey is far from easy. It is not a bed of roses but obeying God makes it easier. 

My brother, my sister, Are You persuaded that nothing shall be able to separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39)? There will be days when you will feel alone. There will be nights when you wonder if anyone still cares. During these times, you must be certain that your life rests in the hands of Almighty God. The devil will do his best to detour you off course. he will try to make you curse God. The Bible declares in Romans 4:21 - And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. Beloved, your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ must grow further than lip service. Your mouth should speak what your heart leaks. If Jesus is in your heart, your mouth will always speak of Him. Are You on the Lord’s side? If not, there is still time for you! My Prayer for You: Father, help my brother/sister to fully submit his/her life over to You. In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Stop It!

July 21st, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever felt all alone in this crowded world? For some reason you felt as if life was determined to rob you of everything. It seemed as if everyone was out to destroy you. Everything you touched seemingly fell apart. Have you ever found yourself mad at God because you felt life dealt you a bad hand? The plans you had for your life were interrupted by unforeseen circumstances. Your dreams and aspirations appear threatened and you feel its all God’s fault. You will never publicly say it, but within you are angry with the Lord. Have you ever made a mistake and blamed God for making this Christian journey so difficult? Everything was going great but you committed one mistake and now everyone is condemning. Have you ever been there? Are you there now?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. I know how it feels to wonder where God is and if He still cares for you. I know how it feels to serve the Lord with your wholeheart but you were lacking in many areas. I know how it feels to see the unsaved and unrighteous enjoying “bountiful” blessings while you are struggling from week to week. I know how it feels, but I also know how it feels to see the Lord move on my behalf. Many times we make the mistake of comparing our lives with the lives of those around us. If they have more than us, we conclude that their blessed and we are not. My friend, Stop It! Stop living your life through the eyes of other people. God is able to bless me and still have enough to bless you as well. The Bible declares in Ephesians 3:20 - Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

My brother, my sister, what makes you think your blessings are based on materialistic possessions? There are many dead people who possesed materialism. The fact that you are alive today makes you blessed. The fact that you have health and strength (whether you are as healthy as you want or not) makes you blessed. The Bible declares in Psalms 34:1 - I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Beloved, we displease God when we spend our days and nights pointing out what someone else has and we do not. Stop It! Stop trying to manipulate the Lord. Stop trying to make the Lord feel guilty. Just because someone gets their prayer answered first does not mean the Lord has not heard your request. Can you praise God when someone gets blessed? Prayer for Today: Father, forgive me for life-comparing with others. Thank You for all You have done, are doing and will do in my life. I love You! In the name of Jesus … Amen!

God Is A Heavy Load Bearer!

July 18th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever been overwhelmed by life’s problems? You found yourself pressed down with pressure from every side. No matter what you attempted to do it still felt like the weight of the world was on your shoulders. Have you ever had people who loved to back their emotional “U-haul” up to you and unload all of their problems? They spend hours releasing their problems. Once they feel better they up and leave. These are people who dropped their load on you and walked off feeling free. Have you ever needed someone to intercede on your behalf but it felt as if no one was available? When they had problems, you were always there. When they needed a listening ear, you were always there. Now there’s no one to be found when you need assistance. Have you been there? Are you there now?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, God Is A Heavy Load Bearer! He is able to bear your load and my load at the same time. People make many promises but generally you see few results. Whatever the Lord says He will do, count on it to be done. The Bible declares in Matthew 11:28 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. What are you dealing with today? What load has you pressed down? What dilemma do you find yourself trying to manage? Do you realize God is able and willing to take that load from you? You do not have to be overwhelmed with the weights of life. Matthew 11:29-30 declares that we should - Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

My brother, my sister, God Is A Heavy Load Bearer! Whatever load has you worried, give it to Jesus. Whatever financial matter has you in limbo, give to Jesus. Stop trying to do it by yourself. You cannot handle everyone’s problems. Give it to Jesus! He can handle it. I promise you!

A Direct Word To You!

July 15th, 2014

Shout Right Now!

July 14th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, I know you have experienced storms in your life.  I know each day has not been a day full of roses.  I know you wanted to quit.  I know you were on the verge of breaking down.  I know life has not always treated you fair.  I know you wondered if things would ever get better for you and yours.  I know the job has challenged you and your relationship with the Lord.  I know biting your tongue is hard to do, especially when you’ve been wronged by someone else.  I know you want the opportunity to tell other people how you really feel.  I know the unforeseen circumstances have really caught you off guard.  I know there have been nights when you cried yourself to sleep, only to wake up still crying.  I know, you know, God has not forgotten about you.

Beloved, today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I have been charged to tell you one thing today.  Listen, don’t wait until the battle is over …

SHOUT RIGHT NOW! 

Your ability to shout in the midst of the battle, displays how much you believe God can work things out for you.  Your shout in the battle causes confusion in the enemy’s camp.  Whatever you are going through, begin to shout praises unto our God … He can and will work things out.
