You Cannot Lose With God!

August 29th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever experienced trying times?  Have you ever felt overwhelmed with life’s problems and cares?  Are you currently weighed down with never-ending circumstances?  Are you tired of feeling the way you feel?  Are you in need of relief?  So often in our lives, we spend so much time hurting within.  We have learned how to cover up our pain with false statements and acts.  We play the role with our family, friends, and co-workers.  We hope no one sees our wounds.  Does this sound like anyone you know?  Does this sound like you?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I understand how it feels to need relief.  It seems as though everyone and everything has gone wrong at the same time.  Your marriage, your ministry, your finances, your business, you friendships, your job, your children, your health.  What do you do?  You are attempting to hold on, but it seems to get harder and harder.  My friend, You Cannot Lose With God!  During these testing times in your life, God is there to uphold you.  The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  He is presently helping you through this trying time.  You are not alone.  You are not without Godly assistance.  Do not listen to the enemy.  Your mind is under attack.  You Cannot Lose With God!

My brother, my sister, the Bible declares in Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  There is an inner strength you must utilize.  You must be willing to stand and protect what the Lord has promised you.  The enemy will attempt to stop you from receiving God’s blessings for your life.  People will speak negatively about you.  On your job, you will find yourself surrounded by unbelievers and hateful individuals.  But, You Cannot Lose With God!  Through it all, you are still a winner in Jesus Christ.  The Bible declares in Romans 8:37 - Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.  Walk upright, you are the righteous of God.  Thought to Remember: God did not form you to lose.

Hang In There!

August 26th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever endured so much pain until you felt like throwing in the towel?  Have you ever felt overwhelmed by life’s problems?  How do you handle these situations in your life?  Do you rely on prayer or pills?  The Almighty or alcohol?  Worship or worrying?  So often in our life, we waste so much time stressing over past mistakes and future plans.  We never maximize the current opportunities God has blessed us with.  We wake up worrying about what we did not do yesterday.  We spend the entire day worrying about the next day.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know times get difficult.  I understand friendships and finances can experience dry seasons.  My friend, Hang In There!  God is not through with you yet.  If you quit now, you will miss out on the best years of your life.  Things can get better.  Things will get better.  You must not surrender to the enemy.  If you are honest with yourself, you are living better than anyone in your bloodline.  Because of the Lord, you have received and obtained more than you expected in life.  The Bible declares in Psalms 27:14 - Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.  Hang In There!  Give no place to depression and anxiety.  God knows what you are in need of.  Do not waver.  Stand on His Word.  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. 

My brother, my sister, Hang In There!  The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 9:11 - … that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.  Your season of abundance is in front of you.  You must develop a spirit of determination.  You must be willing to fight for it.  Friends may betray you, Hang In There!  Family may question you, Hang In There!  Your faithfulness may experience mocking, Hang In There!  Your body may feel feeble and weak, Hang In There!  Your job may seem uncertain, Hang In There!  Your marriage may be rocky at this time, Hang In There!  Thought to Remember: If you can believe it, God can definitely do it!

Do The Right Thing!

August 25th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself faced with a difficult decision to make?  Have you ever felt forced to lie?  How did it make you feel?  Are you currently living a lie to spare someone’s feelings?  So often in our lives, we place ourselves in the midst of difficult dilemmas.  We know the difference between right and wrong, but we choose wrong to keep friendships alive.  On the job, in the home, at the church, in the classroom, or within, we attempt to avoid the truth for fear of rebellion.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Do The Right Thing!  You know what you must do.  You know what the Lord requires of you.  The Bible declares in Matthew 5:6 - Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.  The enemy attempts to make doing right seem so wrong.  You find yourself around people who encourage you to avoid the right things.  Within your spirit you know what you must do, but you work hard to avoid doing it.  Do The Right Thing!  The Bible declares in Psalms 1:6 - For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.  How much longer will you deceive yourself?  How much longer will you live in bondage to reality?  When you are doing what is right, the enemy will try to make you feel guilty.  Be not ashamed!

My brother, my sister, are you living in disobedience to the Word of God?  Are you operating in hypocrisy?  Do The Right Thing!  The Bible declares in Matthew 23:28 - Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.  It is important for us, as Believers, to live a life that brings glory, honor, and praise to the Lord.  There will be people who will not agree with us.  There will be places you cannot enter anymore.  There will be things you must let go.  Do The Right Thing!  When you think about it, only Jesus died for you.  He endured the suffering for us.  We owe Him a life that pleases Him.  We must follow the examples Christ set for us.  He has not led us into unrighteous acts.  The Bible declares in Psalms 23:3 - … He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Do The Right Thing!  Thought to Remember: None but the righteous shall see God!

Your Life is Purpose Driven!

August 24th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever wondered what God had planned for your life?  Have you ever questioned God’s abilities?  Have you ever felt useless and unappreciated by others?  I use too!  So often in our lives, we live for years without ever realizing God has orchestrated our paths.  Not by coincidence, but God’s divine plan.  You are here on a God-given assignment.  Are you living as though you are destined to be here?  Are you living a defeated life?  Do you know someone who is?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Your Life is Purpose Driven!  You are not a mistake, but purposed.  God planned for you to be here even though your current circumstances may differ.  I know how it feels to question God’s plans for your life.  You wonder why God allows you to endure so much pain and heartbreak.  You start wishing He would take the pain away (or just take you away.)  The Bible declares in Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.  Currently, things seem difficult to handle.  Everything and everyone seems to be working against you.  You are battling depression and worry.  The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 3:1 - To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

My brother, my sister, Your Life is Purpose Driven!  You are the formation of God.  Created in His likeness and in His image.  What are you currently enduring in your life?  What dilemma are you faced with?  Is there anything too hard for God?  Last night, I was reminded about God’s goodness towards me.  I was reminded that my life was purposed by God.  On this day, under the authority of God, I declare that you shall not die but live and declare the marvelous works of the Lord.  The Bible declares in Numbers 23:19God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?  What has God spoken in your life?  Are you still standing on that Word?  Your Life isPurpose Driven!  Thought to Remember: Until your purpose is fulfilled, death has to wait!

Do Not Stop Serving The Lord!

August 23rd, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever felt like giving up?  Have you ever wanted to walk away from everyone and everything?  You were tired of being tired.  No joy, no peace, no excitement.  So often in our lives, we find ourselves faced with challenging times.  Times when you feel as though no one really values your efforts.  Your dedication to the Lord is often ridiculed.  Your love for others is often stepped on.  What do you do?  How do you handle this season in your life?  Problems at home, at work, at church, at school.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, during your challenges and battles, Do Not Stop Serving The Lord!  Many times, when things become difficult, we run from our only source of strength.  We turn our back on the things of God.  We call our friends for advice, listen to music for soothing or scream for relief.  When everything else fails us, it is then that we call on the Lord.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 3:5 - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  When you cannot handle anymore rejection, you must learn to lean on the Lord.  When everything and everyone has counted you out, you must depend on the Word of God.  Do Not Stop Serving The Lord!  Do not run from your way out.  Friends are good to have, but they will never be able to replace the Lord.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:24 - A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

My brother, my sister, Do Not Stop Serving The Lord!  God is able to bring peace into your hectic situation.  He is willing to see you through.  Understand, when you are faced with dilemmas at home, at work, at church, in the classroom, or within, do not allow the enemy to push you away from the Lord.  The Bible declares in Romans 8:38-39 - For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Let nothing separate you from God’s love.  What are you going through today?  What are you faced with?  Thought to Remember: Serving satisfies God. (When God is satisfied with you, He will reward you openly.)

Be Not Deceived By the enemy!

August 22nd, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever fallen for a person because they told you they were someone they’re really not?  Have you ever gone places you thought God sent you?  Are you currently somewhere you thought God sent you?  Are you currently with someone you thought you could not live without?  So often in our lives, we find ourselves engaged in activities that are ungodly.  You thought you were doing the right thing, but to your surprise you are not.  You had good intentions, but made the wrong decisions.  Your emotions were heavily involved.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Be Not Deceived By the enemy!  The Bible declares in Galatians 6:7 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: … The Lord receives no glory when you are tempted or deceived.  God loves you too much to play games with you or your life.  The Bible declares in James 1:13 - Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man:  The enemy is out to ruin you.  The enemy desires to destroy everything God has invested within you.  Your life’s purpose is under attack by the enemy’s camp.  You must be careful and prayerful.  You must not allow your emotions to control your behavior.  You have to be spirit led, not emotionally led.  The enemy will work off of your emotions.  When you display an interest in something or someone, the enemy will attempt to use that to weaken you.  Be Not Deceived By the enemy!

My brother, my sister, your life is important.  God has formed and created you for His glory.  Do not allow the enemy to steal your faith, kill your dreams or destroy your anointing.  The Bible declares in John 10:10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.   Be Not Deceived By the enemy!  When you get sick, he wants you to think you will die.  When you lose your job, he wants you to worry about your bills.  When you experience marital difficulties, he wants you to contemplate divorce.  When you preach, teach, or sing well, he wants you to become arrogant.  Sometimes, he will use people to sing you praises.  Be Not Deceived By the enemy!  Thought to Remember: The devil is a defeated foe (enemy).

Count Up The Cost!

August 19th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself upset with the Lord?  Have you ever felt God owed you more than you currently have?  Are you mad at the Lord now?  So often in our lives, we find ourselves housing anger and bitterness toward the Lord.  We feel as though God dealt us an unfair hand.  You are angry.  Very disappointed.  You begin to tell God about all the many wonderful things you gave up to serve Him.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Count Up The Cost!  If you sit down and analyze your life, you would realize God has been better to you than you have been to yourself.  He has been better to you than you have been to Him.  He has protected you when you made foolish decisions.  He has positioned angels to watch over your everyday affairs.  The Bible declares in Psalms 91:11 - For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  Count Up The Cost!  Think about the places you went, the people you hung with, and the things you used to do.  Think about the club parties and hotels you stayed in.  Think about the debt you owed and the bills you had.  Think about the lies and rumors you heard.  Think about the sicknesses and diseases you could have experienced.  Think about the healing and deliverance you enjoyed.  Truth be told, you owe God more than He owes you.

My brother, my sister, why are you angry with the Lord?  What has He done wrong?  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.  The Lord would never withhold any good thing from you.  You should thank the Lord for this.  Count Up The Cost!  There are some things you constantly pray for, but the Lord knows it is not a good thing for you to have.  He knows it looks good to your natural eye, but it will cause you more pain than victory.  Thought to Remember: You should thank God for everything, not just the things you want.  Until Monday …

What Is A Fool?

August 18th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever played a practical joke on someone?  Have you ever been on the receiving end of the joke?  I was known for playing jokes on classmates and co-workers.  It was fun to see their reactions.  So often we engage in worldly activities without ever having a solid understanding.  We see everyone else doing it, so we think it is okay.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, What Is A Fool?  The Bible declares in Psalms 14:1 - The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.  When you call someone a fool, you are calling them an enemy to God.  So often, we know people who use this word loosely.  We hear parents call their children fools.  We hear spouses call each other fools.  We hear friends call each other fools.  According to the Word of God, if you are a child of God you cannot be a fool.  What Is A Fool?  A fool is the person who denounces the name of the Lord.  When you think about it, the Bible states that every sin shall be forgiven but one … the blaspheming of the Holy Spirit.  (Blaspheme - to speak of or address with irreverence.  To lie on).  The Bible declares in Luke 12:10 - And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.   

My brother, my sister, we are not fools.  We are not enemies of God.  We are chosen by the Almighty hand of our Father.  We are called to change a generation.  The Bible declares in Peter 2:9 - But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.  What Is A Fool?  A fool is a person who attempts to manipulate and use the Lord for his/her personal gain.  The Bible declares in Psalms 107:17 - Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.  Thought to Remember: You are not a fool, but a child of the Most High God.

Let People Say What They Will!

August 17th, 2016

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!

REPENT!

August 16th, 2016

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever done someone wrong and never apologized?  Have you ever sinned and did not ask God to forgive you?  Are you currently involved in sinful behavior?  Are you in denial?  So often in our lives, we place ourselves in positions that push us further away from the will of God.  We surround ourselves by people who do not mean us good.  We know the Word of God.  We know the ways of God.  However, we still find our own reasons to disobey them.  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, you have done wrong long enough.  It is time for you, to … REPENT!  God has waited patiently for you to get your act together.  He has encamped His angels around you, even when you were doing wrong.  You know it is time to make a change … for the better.  You know the Lord deserves more from you.  The Bible declares in 2 Chronicles 7:14 - 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.  The Lord has promised you three things: He will hear from Heaven; Forgive your sins; and Heal your land.  You must understand, in order for the Lord to do what He wants to do, you must first do your part.  REPENT!  The Lord is Alpha and He is Omega, but you have to do the work in the middle.

My brother, my sister, what sin are you playing with?  What thoughts are you contemplating?  Are you attempting to ignore the voice of the Lord?  Understand this, to repent means to turn from sin and dedicate your life to the things of God.  You must make a turn.  The Bible declares in James 5:16 - Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  Today is your day to REPENT!  For all the wrong you have done, REPENT!  For the times to stray away, REPENT!  For the judgments you passed on someone else, REPENT!  For the times you doubting the Lord, REPENT!  Thought to Remember: Your life was created with a purpose, never allow sin to destroy it.
