Let The Lord’s Will Be Done!

August 31st, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself in a position of uncertainty and confusion?  It seemed as though everything in your life was going wrong.  Every decision you made backfired in your face.  Have you ever experienced heartbreak at the hands of someone else’s mistakes or failures?  Due to someone else’s behavior, you are left picking up the pieces of your heart.  Have you ever wondered why certain things happened?  No matter how you prepared yourself, you still were caught off guard.  Have you ever struggled with the plan of God for your life?  Although you believe God knows everything, there are times when you have a difficult time submitting to the plan of God.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Submission is a difficult thing when you refuse to release your plans.  As long as you desire to be the chief, you will always have tough times accepting the instructions of God.  You cannot be God.  He does not need help being who He is.  You must learn how to submit to His plans, follow His instructions and obey His commands.  My friend, Let The Lord’s Will Be Done!  Let the Lord have His way in your life.  The Bible declares in Matthew 26:42He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.  Even during the toughest time in Jesus’ life and ministry, He was able to surrender to the will of the Lord.  Although God has called you for the assignment, does not mean you are beyond the point of submission.  The Bible declares in 1 Corinthians 15:31 - I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.   

My brother, my sister, we will not understand everything God does in our lives.  There will be times when we will not understand certain things or people.  There will be times when the Lord instructs you to say a specific thing to a specific person that seems crazy to you.  Let The Lord’s Will Be Done!  The Bible declares in Isaiah 55:8 - For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  You must grow to a level of total trust in the Lord.  Beloved, just because you do not comprehend it, does not mean God cannot.  Nothing just happens.  God is always in control.  He will never ask you to do anything that is not for your good (Romans 8:28)(Psalms 84:11).  Let The Lord’s Will Be Done!  Trust Him and never doubt, the Lord can and will bring you out.  Prayer for Today: Father, although there are times I do not understand, I know you do.  Since I know you are all-knowing, I submit myself unto you.  In Jesus’ name, Amen!

God Knows What He Is Doing!

August 28th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself looking for love in all the wrong places?  You knew God loved you, but the desire to be loved by man caused you to search in places displeasing to God.  Have you neglected your needs for the needs of your job?  You worked overtime, never took vacations and skipped lunch breaks.  Have you ever compared your lifestyle to a family member or friend?  Your definition of success was comparing your achievements with those of others.  If you had more, you felt good about yourself.  If they had more, you became depressed and bitter.  Are you mad at yourself because of your current location in life?  You assumed things would be different.  At your current age, you thought you would be further along.  Are you happy?  This is a serious question.  Hmmmmmmmm

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  When we were growing up, we had our lives mapped out.  We had our lives broken down in five year stages.  By 18, you graduate high school.  By 23, you had your first degree and working with a nice salary.  By 28, you are married or in a serious relationship. By 33, you have the white picket fence, with the dog, wonderful spouse and one or two beautiful children.  Sound familiar?  While planning your life, you never anticipated trials and tribulations.  You never thought of life’s hurdles.  What do you do when your plan for life is altered because of finances, an early (or late) pregnancy, death in the family, divorce or health reasons?  How do you cope with alterations?  You are now upset with life, God and yourself.  You feel like a failure.  You wonder what went wrong.  You wonder what God is doing.  My friend, God Knows What He Is Doing!  The Bible declares in Proverbs 16:9 - A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

My brother, my sister, the Lord still has a plan for your life.  The mistakes you’ve made are not hidden from the Lord.  The things that caused your misery, God will use for your ministry.  Before you experienced the ‘hell’ you did not qualify to minister to the broken.  If you never had financial troubles, you could not testify that the Lord is a provider.  God Knows What He Is Doing!  The Bible declares in Psalms 37:23 - The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in His way.  Beloved, although you do not understand everything, He does.  The struggles you’ve endured are preparing you for a greater assignment.  There are many people God wants you to encourage along the way.  The things you experienced in life, some people are currently enduring.  They want to give up.  You now qualify to minister to their needs.  You can relate.  You can give them hope.  The Bible declares in Psalms 18:30 - As for God, His way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him.  God Knows What He Is Doing!  Prayer for Today: Father, forgive me for complaining during my testing times.  I now realize you know what You are doing.  Use me to encourage someone who does not believe.  In Jesus’ name … Amen!

It Does Not Matter …

August 27th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever told someone your deep secret and they later told someone else?  After years of guilt and sadness, you finally opened up to someone and look what happened.  Have you ever been wounded by the lies of your peers?  Due to God’s anointing on your life, many people have set out to destroy you (Ephesians 6:12).  Have you walked away from the assignment of God for your life?  You have become overwhelmed with the pressure that this world placed on your shoulders.  Are you walking with your head down in defeat?  You no longer believe a change can happen.  Have you become weary in doing good (Galatians 6:9)?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, It Does Not Matter … what the enemy has tried to do. You must understand, the more “hell” you endure signifies the greater the glory you shall receive.  When the Lord desires to use you, the enemy tries all he can to tear you down.  The enemy begins to use people to remind you of old mistakes you have made and attempts to send you to former places you attended.  The Bible declares in Isaiah 43:18-19 - Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.  It Does Not Matter … what lie has been told against you.  Now that the Lord has chosen you, expect the persecution.  The process will be difficult at times.  Everyone will not be happy for you.

My brother, my sister, It Does Not Matter … who walks away.  As God deals with you, there will be people who will not hang around.  There will be places you can no longer visit.  There will be things you can no longer be apart of.  The Bible declares in Ephesians 2:10 - For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.  There will come a period in your life when you find yourself isolated from others.  Your comfort zone will be stretched, as well as your faith.  It Does Not Matter … as long as God is in control.  The Bible declares in Isaiah 40:22 - It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:  Thought for Today: What God has spoken to you shall come to pass.

Do Not Bow To The Enemy!

August 26th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  When was the last time you took a stand against wicked devices?  The times when church members and family members engaged in destructive gossip, what did you do about it?  The times when unrighteousness was occurring at your place of employment, what did you say about it?  Do people flock to you with the latest rumors?  Many times those who gossip and spread rumors only go to those who enjoy hearing it.  Are you one?  Have you declared Christ as the head of your life?  Is He in total control of your comings and goings?  When was the last time you told someone about the goodness of Jesus Christ?  Are you ashamed?  Are you afraid?  Is the enemy trying to make you bow?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister.  So often in our lives, we see many people compromise their walk with the Lord for momentary recognition or acceptance by friends.  We watch many people lose their blessings because they partner with people who did not fear the Lord.  We know people who have walked away from the church and fellowship with the Lord because the world appeared more glorious.  There are members of our family that refuse to confess Christ as their Savior because they believe all Christians are hypocrites.  You have debated and pleaded with them.  No change.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?  My friend, Do Not Bow To The Enemy!  The Bible declares in Daniel 3:10-11 - Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image: 11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.  As the three Hebrew boys, you must bow to no other gods (Exodus 20:3).

My brother, my sister, it does not matter how wonderful this world appears.  It does not matter what promises the enemy has issued (John 8:44).  Do Not Bow To The Enemy!  You must remain stedfast and unmoveable in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58).  Beloved, there is only one God to bow down before … the all True and Living God.  The Bible declares in Psalms 95:6 - O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.  We are the creation of God.  We have been designed to offer Him daily praise and sincere worship.  He has given us a heart to know Him (Jeremiah 24:7).  Do Not Bow To The Enemy!  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:24 - No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  Has the enemy been tempting you with unfulfilled promises?  Are you enticed by his lies?  Are you his pawn?  Have you bowed to the enemy?  I pray you have not.  Prayer for Today: Father, I realize the enemy desires to make me bow before him.  As your child, I submit myself totally to you and no one else.  In Jesus’ name … Amen!

Are You Really Ready To Move?

August 25th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Are you the type of person who gets comfortable in every place you go?  No matter where you are, people have to convince you to get up and move.  Are you the type of person who operates within a small box?  Because of fear and a lack of faith, you stay within the comfort of your four walls (the box).  Are you the type of person who depends upon the opinions of others?  Whatever they say about you determines how you respond.  Are you a leader or a follower?  (At times, there’s nothing wrong with following, but you must know when it is time to lead.)  Have you ever attempted to avoid a Godly move because your “friends” were not able to go with you?  Have you ever walked away from an open door because people discouraged you?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Lately you have been asking God for many things.  Because of dissatisfaction on your job, you have asked God for another one.  Because of the lack of appreciation where you are, now you desire to go in a different direction.  Because of setbacks in your life, now you desire to follow the Lord’s lead.  As a result of idol speaking by friends, you have asked God to separate you.  My friend, Are You Really Ready To Move?  Often times we make decisions because it sounds like the right thing to say at that time.  While it may impress others, it does not impress God.  God sees your heart and He knows when you are sincere (1 Samuel 16:7).  The Bible declares in Luke 9:62 - And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.  Are You Really Ready To Move?  Are you sincere in your gestures?  There will come times when people will try to knock you off base.  The enemy will attack you any chance he gets.

My brother, my sister,  Are You Really Ready To Move?  Are you really sincere?  Beloved, if God were to give you what you are currently asking for, would you be ready to receive it?  So often in life, we pray for open doors and showers of blessings, but we never position ourselves to receive.  The Bible declares in Psalms 84:11 - For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.  If what you are asking God for will bring honor to Him, He will not withhold it from you.  Are You Really Ready To Move?  Are you really ready for the next level?  Are you prepared for the new assignment?  Remember, God knows the truth, do you?  Dear friend, think about the things you are asking God for in your life, are they selfish request or for the glory of God (Colossians 3:23)?  Prayer for Today: Father, I know you are all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful.  Prepare me today for the next move, in Jesus’ name … Amen!

Go After It!

August 24th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever dreamed of greater things for your life?  Where you are now is not where you plan to stay.  Have you ever desired to go further in the Lord?  Your spirit will not allow you to get comfortable.  Have you ever been surrounded by lazy people?  They no longer have the desire and drive to go after more.  Have you ever felt trapped by the traditions of your church or the stereotypes of this world?  Everytime you attempt to do something you always hear the same line, … “We never did it that way before!”  So often in our lives, we find ourselves stuck between comfort and the unknown.  Comfort represents where you have always been, but unknown is where God wants to take you.  Comfort is your daily routine (your agenda), but unknown is God’s plan and His agenda.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  During those times when you desire to have more or do more, what prevents you?  Those times when you want to step out but you are afraid, what causes you fear?  In life, we are faced with so many choices.  Everyday we make hundreds of choices for our lives.  While choosing, there must come a time when we must choose to do the will of God.  What has God promised for your life?  My friend, Go After It!  You must get to a point where your excuses are no longer hindering you.  The Bible declares in Hebrews 12:1 -  … let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.  You must separate yourself from people, places and things which attempt to detour you from the destiny God has for you.  No matter what it takes, if God said it was for you, Go After It!  Pursue the plan of God for your life.  Desire to have all God wants to give.

My brother, my sister, are there any stumbling blocks in your life?  Are there any wolves in sheep’s clothing?  Are there any doubters and unbelievers in your way?  If you want what God has, you have to do what you have never done before.  The Bible declares in Genesis 32:24-27 - And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a Man with him until the breaking of the day26 And He said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except Thou bless me.  Dear friend, sometimes you have to be willing to go through some things.  In spite of it, Go After It!  You might have to experience a season of isolation (a time when you are by yourself).  In spite of it, Go After It!  There are times when you have to endure purification (a time of cleansing).  In spite of it, Go After It!  Beloved, no matter what it takes, be determined to Go After It!   Prayer for Today: Father, I know you have a plan and purpose for my life.  I know you desire to use me for your glory.  Give me the strength to stand and the desire to Go After It!  In Jesus’ name … Amen!

At Your Weakest Point, God Is At His Strongest!

August 21st, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself backed up against the wall?  Somewhere along the line you lost control.  Have you ever had weak moments in your life?  Times when you did not want to leave the comfort of your home.  You thought everything would go away if you stayed in bed all day.  Have you ever cried until you could not cry anymore?  Have you ever screamed until there was no more sound coming out?  Have you ever prayed yourself to sleep at night?  Have you ever spent all day worrying about tomorrow?  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, At Your Weakest Point, God Is At His Strongest!  When you can no longer think of something or someone to count on, it is then that God can manifest Himself.  As long as you think you have the answer, God will stand back.  When you finally submit and surrender to the All-knowing, All-powerful God, He can show Himself strong.  The Bible declares in 2 Corinthians 12:9 - And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness … In your life, there’s nothing too hard for God to handle.  What seems impossible to you, is possible to God (Luke 1:37).  At Your Weakest Point, God Is At His Strongest!  While it may be true that you know a lot of people, there will come a time in your life when your networking and connecting will not help.  A time when money cannot buy an answer.  A time when you must trust in the power of God.

My brother, my sister, At Your Weakest Point, God Is At His Strongest!  The Bible declares in Matthew 11:29-30 - 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.  Dear friend, what are you faced with today?  Where do you find yourself feeling weak?  Are you tired of being tired?  Are you in need of relief?  You must understand the strength of God.  Many forget God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1).  Since He created all that we know, He is able to handle it all.  Nothing can occur in our lives, that God finds difficult.  Since He created all things, that makes Him stronger than everything.  At Your Weakest Point, God Is At His Strongest!  Thought To Remember: If you focus on God’s strength, you can overcome your weaknesses.

One Touch!

August 20th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever been in need of something miraculous to happen in your life?  You have tried every connection and referral you could think of.  Have you ever cried out for someone to help you?  There was so much pain that you thought you would lose your mind.  Have you ever wanted to give up on yourself?  Everything you said you would no longer do, you still find yourself doing it.  Have you ever felt punished by life?  No matter where you turn, everything and everyone seemed to be against you.  What do you do when your surroundings have become unfamiliar?  What do you do when everything you worked for is now diminishing before you?

This morning I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  In spite of all you have endured in life, your outcome can experience a drastic change.  Today it could seem impossible and tomorrow it could seem changeable.  My friend, all you need is One Touch!  While your current situation(s) appears inevitable, your eternal God is capable.  The Bible declares in Mark 5:27 - When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment.  You must get to a point in your life, when you are determined to get all the Lord has for you.  Your past pains and heartaches can become present joys and celebrations.  All you need is One Touch!  If Christ were to place His hand in the midst of your current circumstance, everything that is wrong would be corrected.  No dark area can remain when the Light of the World intervenes.  The Bible declares in Jeremiah 1:9 - Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put My words in thy mouth.

My brother, my sister, all you need is One Touch!  One encounter with the Lord.  One moment in His divine presence.  No matter how bad you feel,  One Touch can change everything.  No matter what the report stated, One Touch can change everything.  In spite of every negative word spoken against you, One Touch can change everything.  No matter what the bank statement shows, One Touch can change everything.  The Bible declares in Daniel 10:10 - And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.  God is able is change the direction of your life, with One Touch.  What are you in need of today?  Do you have a heavy heart?  Has sickness attacked your body or your family?  Are you on the verge of a breakdown?  Dear friend, all you need is One Touch!  Challenge for Today: In stead of complaining about the matter, ask God to lay His hand on it.

Let People Say What They Will!

August 19th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever spent hours, days, weeks or years worrying about other people’s opinions?  Have you ever attempted to make everyone around you happy?  Do you believe you can make everyone happy?  Do you believe you can make everyone like and accept you?  So often in our lives, we fail to realize how important we are to God.  We spend so much time trying to receive man’s kind words, until we shut God out of our lives.  The way you wake up and go to sleep usually depends on what has been said about you.  Does this sound like anyone you know?  Does this sound like you?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Let People Say What They Will!  You will never be able to please everyone.  There are some people who strive to make your life miserable.  You can have ten friends.  You can treat each of them the same way all the time.  In the end, at least one of the ten will complain that you treat him/her different.  The Bible declares in James 1:8 - A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.  When you spend your time trying to please each person you encounter, your foundation becomes unstable.  You find yourself tossed to and fro.  You are who the Lord made you to be in this world.  You are here to fulfill your purpose by design.  Let People Say What They Will!  The Bible declares in Psalms 118:8 - It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

My brother, my sister, your God-given assignment will not make everyone happy with you.  There will be times when you are misunderstood and misrepresented.  You will have fingers pointed in your face.  You must stand for righteousness sake.  You must not waver.  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:24 - No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  Let People Say What They Will!  Your anointing is not based on man’s opinion.   The success and significance of your ministry is not based on the newspaper articles.  You cannot spend your days and nights in a corner hiding.  You are chosen to help change a generation.  Some things will come with the territory.  Let People Say What They Will!  Thought to Remember: Dear friend, always remember this one thing, when you had nothing to give, God gave His Son, let them talk about that!

God Hears Your Whisper!

August 18th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever experienced depression?  How about loneliness?  How were you able to handle it?  Do you remember how it began?  Are you still experiencing it?  So often in our lives, we dance and shout in church, but go home broken.  We say all of the “holy” words when we are around others, but internally we have lost our joy.  You are crying but no one seems to hear you.  You are reaching out for help and no one seems to notice.  You are begging for someone, anyone to recognize your current state.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Through depression, loneliness, and low self-esteem, the Lord is able to deliver you.  When you are crying and reaching out for help, the Lord is able to hear and save you.  My friend, God Hears Your Whisper!  The Bible declares in Isaiah 59:1 - Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:  Many people will never experience what you have experienced in life.  Some would never recover from what you endured.  When your body is tired and your voice is weak, God Hears Your Whisper!  He is able to hear what no one else hears.  He is able to be strong when you are weak.  He is still God, even when all hell has broken loose.  The Bible declares in 2 Corinthians 12:9 - And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness…  

My brother, my sister, at your breaking point in life, God Hears Your Whisper!  When you feel alone and friendless, God Hears Your Whisper!  When the world seems to be caving in on you, God Hears Your Whisper!  When friends and family betray you, God Hears Your Whisper!  Your inner-most thoughts, are heard by the Lord.  Have you ever been so tired until all you could do was whisper?  No more strength to yell.  No more strength to cry.  No more strength to get up.  Never allow the enemy to defeat you in this manner.  God is always present and listening.  No matter what lies the enemy speaks in your ears, God does still care for you.  The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Thought to Remember: God can always hear you, even when you whisper.
