This is for all the people …

March 27th, 2015

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, I have been instructed by the Holy Spirit to sow this one scripture into your spirit.

  • This is for all the people who wonder when things will get better.
  • This is for all the people who wonder when it will be their turn.
  • This is for all the people who have cried themselves to sleep at night.
  • This is for all the people who wonder where is God?
  • This is for all the people who have not given up on the Lord.
  • This is for all the people who still believe God will come through for them.
  • This is for all the people who thought about giving up but have not.
  • This is for all the people standing on the Word of God.
  • This is for all the people experiencing chaos on the job
  • This is for all the people enduring spiritual warfare.
  • This is for all the people dealing with a dry season (financially, emotionally, spiritually)

Beloved, thus saith the Lord …

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven

(Ecclesiastes 3:1)

Prepare Yourself

March 26th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever met someone who spends more time complaining about life than praising God for being alive?  This person spends every waking moment focusing on the negatives of life, as if the Lord is not doing anything right.  When this person gets around you there’s a draining that occurs in your spirit.  No matter how great you feel, when this person comes around you instantly feel a tightening in your spirit.  Have you ever met someone who said they’re believing God for something awesome but in the next breath they’re speaking doubt?  According to Proverbs 18:21 - Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  Its amazing to think and to see how many Christians claim to be trusting God for a breakthrough but they’re also plotting under the table … just in case the Lord does not respond based on their timetable.

Amazingly, many people act as if the Lord cannot see everything we are doing.  Just because our actions are hidden from man does not mean they’re ever hidden from God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Prepare Yourself!  Just because you have layed your prayer request on the altar, does not mean you stop pursuing after the things of God.  While it is true that God does not need help being God, there is still work for us to do.  The best way to say it is: God is Alpha (beginning) and Omega (end), but you (we) must work the middle.  The Bible declares in Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  It is time for you to prepare yourself for the blessings you have been praying for.  It is time for you to walk into what you have been believing God for.

My brother, my sister, could it be possible that the reason the Lord has not answered your request is because HE knows you are not fully prepared for what you are asking for?  Although you are praying, fasting, begging, making promises, God knows if you are prepared for it or not.  Beloved, the Lord looks beyond your empty promises.  We as a people often feel if we promise to give this, God will then give us something.  God cannot be paid off.  He’s searching our hearts to see how sincere we really are.  The Bible declares in Esther 4:14 - For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?  Child of God, Prepare Yourself!  Stop talking about it and be about it!

Thus Said the Lord

March 25th, 2015

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, yesterday morning after sending out the devotional, the Holy Spirit began to deal with me about matters occurring within the body of Christ.  While I listened tears swelled up in my eyes.  The more He spoke the more I realized my guilt and conviction.  There are many things we are doing today that have absolutely no biblical foundation and no God connection.  We have become so stuck in our ways that we no longer truly depend on the Lord for everything … including the little things.  According to Matthew 15:6 - … Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.  At this time, allow me to share with you everything the Holy Spirit said to me.

                                                                 

Whatever happened to My people being in love with Me?  Whatever happened to My people trusting Me for everything?  Whatever happened to My people seeking Me before making any decisions?  I have sat and watched as the Believers have grown more and more worldly in their ways.  No longer are the people striving for holiness.  They live as if I cannot see what they’re doing.  Lies, deception, cheating, lust, adultery, homosexuality (lesbianism), worry and self-glorification have consumed the world and now the body of Believers.  Whatever happened to the Godly examples?  How can someone see the difference between the world and the church, when the church is engaging in the same behaviors and lifestyles as the world.  

My people have taken my mercy for granted.  They think because I have not reacted that I will never react.  My grace is sufficient, but My patience is wearing thin.  I will not continue to sit around and watch as the church becomes more and more polluted with the ways of the world.  Where are the Christians?  Where are the confessed Believers?  Where are the saints who are not ashamed of the Gospel?  Son, I want repentance from My people.  They have become stubborn, stiff-necked and selfish.  How dare they take what I made for good and use it for evil.  Since when did I permit married couples to engage in adultery?  Since when did I approve homosexuality and lesbianism?  Since when did I say greed was permissible?  Since when do I bless mess?

I am seeking true worshipers.  Where are they?  WHERE ARE THEY?  Where are the people who strive to please me?  Where are the people who strive to serve me?  Where are the parents who will raise their children in Godly-principles?  Where are the people who will trust Me in spite of?  Have they forgotten I am the same God yesterday, today and forever?  I want more from My people.  I expect more from My people.  I deserve more from My people.  STARTING NOW!

Tell The Truth, Shame the devil!

March 24th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  What do you do when someone you trust has been dishonest with you?  How does it make you feel?  Do you end the friendship?  What do you do when the person you hold in high esteem is actually living a double life?  What do you do when that family member everyone speaks highly of is actually abusive?  What do you do when the friend or sibling you love with all your heart is now addicted to drugs or alcohol?  So often in our lives, we find ourselves on the receiving end of dishonesty.  A person you trusted held back the truth from you.  When you confronted them, more lies were given.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?  Are you the person?  This person looked you right in the eye and lied to you.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Tell The Truth, Shame the devil!  When we are dishonest with our brothers and sisters, we give glory to the enemy.  When we feel the need to lie we empower the camp of satan.  God hates lies and he expects us to hate it as well.  The Bible declares in John 8:44 - Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.  Sometimes you find yourself in positions where telling the truth seems so difficult.  Being dishonest is your first reaction.  We feel as if one little “white lie” has never hurt anyone.  Right? Wrong! Tell The Truth, Shame the devil!

My brother, my sister, you must understand who your Father is.  He expects more out of you.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 17:4 - A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.   Dishonesty never betters anyone.  When a person tells a lie, (s)he must continue to lie to cover the first one.  The Bible declares in John 8:32 - And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  When you find yourself wavering between the two options, always Tell The Truth and bring Shame to the devil!  Thought to Remember: If you hate being lied to, make sure you are not doing what you hate!

Lord, Expose The devil!

March 23rd, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever met someone or known someone who always appeared in a panic?  No matter how wonderful things are in this person’s life, (s)he always finds something to worry about.  When God answered his/her prayers, this person began to worry about how (s)he would maintain it.  Ex: If this person prays for a new car and God answers their prayer, the person starts worrying about the monthly car payments.  Isn’t it amazing how we can bombard Heaven with our daily prayers, but when the Lord answers us we stop believing and start worrying?  Do you not realize the same God who heard your prayers and answered, is the same God who can and will help you maintain?  God never starts anything He cannot finish.  According to Philippians 1:6 - Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  While it is easy to worry about the ‘what ifs’ of life or wonder about possible demonic assaults, I have learned to place and keep my trust in the Lord.  Dear one, understand, the devil cannot do anything to you unless God grants him access.  Read Job 1,2.  As you go forth today, stop worrying about the amount of bills you have to pay.  Stop worrying about the amount of people speaking against you.  Stop worrying about the traps set against you.  As you go forth, pray this simple, but powerful prayer: Lord, Expose The devil!  The Bible declares in Romans 8:31 - What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?  My friend, God sees all and knows all.  He sees all the traps and tricks of the devil.  satan’s ways are not hidden from the Lord.  

My brother, my sister, in the words of my good friend and mentor, Minister Matthew Williams, the devil is defeated.  he has already been overtaken.  What do you think Jesus accomplished on the Cross?  He did not endure Friday night and rise on Sunday morning, so we could have Easter.  No, no!   He suffered, bled, gave up the ghost, was buried and resurrected so we as God’s children could experience everlasting life in Heaven but also have abundant, victorious life on earth.  As you go forth, pray this simple, but powerful prayer: Lord, Expose The devil!  The Bible declares in 1 John 4:4 - Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Press Rewind!

March 20th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  So often in our lives, we experience times when we do not want to be bothered.  There are times when we want to be by ourselves.  Even today, you are thinking of other places you could be at this present time.  Physically your body is drained.  Emotionally you hate your job.  Financially you realize the job is important.  Can you relate?  No matter what you want to do, within you feel trapped by the “what ifs” of life.  What if I do this and things backfire?  What if I go here and things backfire?  What if I step out on faith and things backfire?  You are stuck in the middle of a spirit versus flesh battle.  According to Matthew 26:41 - Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Today, I have been commissioned to come and strengthen you.  

My friend, during those times when you do not want to be bothered, when you want to be by yourself, when you are experiencing a mental roller-coaster, when the people around you are doubting, you need to Press Rewind!  There are people around you who would love to have what you hate and complain about.  No the job is not the best, but it is a blessing to have one.  No the car does not act right all the time, but it is a blessing to have one.  If you ever Press Rewind, you would realize how good God has been to you.  You would realize God has proven Himself and continues to prove Himself each day.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 23:7 - For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:  The way you view your situation will result in how you handle the situation.

My brother, my sister, what are you complaining about?  Who are you complaining about?  Why are you afraid to step out on the Word of God?  Why are you questioning whether God can make a way?  Do you really think God would let you fall on your face after He told you to step out on Him?  I beg the differ.  As you were riding in your car today, did you see someone asking for food?  Maybe asking for work or money?  That could have been you.  Right where you are, Press Rewind!  Thank the Lord for watching over you all night.  Thank Him for forgiving your sins.  Thank Him for loving you in spite of all your wrong.  Beloved, the same way God has always taken care of you, IS the same way He will continue to take care of You.  The Bible declares in Job 33:12 - Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.  Point to Remember: If you stop long enough, you will always find something to thank God for. 

FYI: To press rewind means you remember all the things God has ever done for you!

Just One Touch

March 19th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Are you at a breaking point in your life?  Has this year begun as last year ended?  So often in our lives, we find ourselves enduring constant turmoil.  It seems as though the light “at the end of the tunnel” is impossible to see.  You are tired of holding on.  Family and friends try to encourage you, but you are no longer receptive to their kind words.  You are just tired and frustrated.  Does this sound like you?  You’re sick-and-tired of being sick-and-tired.  Just when you get one side nailed down, the other side pops up.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, I understand how it feels to be tired and frustrated.  You no longer see clearly.  You have tried everyone and every thing and nothing has helped.  So many issues in your life.  At that point in your life, you need Just One Touch!  The Bible declares in Mark 5:25-26 - And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse … Sounds familiar?  Although your issue may not be blood, it has lasted several years.  You have experimented with every remedy you can think of … no cure!  The Bible goes on to say in Mark 5:27-28 - When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.  28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.  

My brother, my sister, today you need Just One Touch!  Whatever you are facing, Just One Touch!  Whatever turmoil you find yourself involved in, Just One Touch!  Through dangers seen and unseen, Just One Touch!  On your job, in your home, in your ministry, in your finances, in your mind or body, Just One Touch!  The Bible declares in Matthew 17:7 - And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.  Point to Remember:  The only touch that matters, is a touch from the Master!

Conversation With God!

March 18th, 2015

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, as I was listening to the voice of God this morning, He said some awesome things and then instructed me to share it with as many people as possible.  In obedience, what He has said is today’s devotional.

My people often question whether I still hear them crying.  They wonder if I still notice when their overwhelmed by life’s problems.  They wonder if I still care about them.  They wonder if I still want to see them prosper as I mentioned in my Word.  They wonder if I am still on the throne watching over the affairs of life or taking a break.  They wonder if I am mad at them since I have not responded based on their timetable.  They wonder where is God when I need Him the most.  They wonder if I still honor my Word or fulfill my promises.  They wonder why did God allow so and so to die.  They spend more time wondering, worrying and doubting, than they do knowing, trusting and believing.  

Then He said:

I am still on the throne watching over My people.  I am still in the business of answering prayers based on my schedule.  I am healing the sick, forgiving sins and blessing my children.  I still honor my Word as I have always done.  I still wipe tears from their eyes and comfort them through the toughest times in their lives.  I still make provision when it appears to be no way.  I still guide and direct.  I still save, set free and deliver.  I still love my children.  I still convict them when their wrong and commend them when their right.  I am still God and beside Me there is no other.  I am still greater than satan.

Then He asked:

I want to know why they stopped trusting me just because I did not respond immediately?  I want to know why they stopped talking to me when I answered their prayers?  I want to know why they’ve become selfish with the blessings they promised they would share?  I want to know why they doubt my abilities when I have a proven record?  I want to know since when does satan have more power than me?  I want to know why they think I cannot pull them out of the pits of life and place their feet on solid ground?  I want to know why they think I am no longer the same God yesterday, today and forever.  I want to know if they want my job or will they allow me to do what I deem best?  I want to know whose side are they on?  I want to know why they think they should be spared from life’s test?  I want to know if they still love me?

Can You Praise While You Wait?

March 17th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  When was the last time you really sat down and thought about the goodness of Jesus?  When was the last time you took the time to think on His faithfulness toward you?  Just think of all the things you have done wrong in your life.  Think of the times He stepped in just before you broke down.  Think of the times He rescued you just before satan released his deadly blow.  Think of the times He covered you from the attacks that were coming against you.  Think of the times He forgave you, although you were guilty.  I get concerned when I hear Christians griping and moaning as if God has not been good to us.  Yes I know times are hard.  I know how it feels to wonder if God is listening or still cares.  Do you realize your complaining does not force God to respond any faster?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Can You Praise While You Wait?  Can you celebrate God even though things appear bleak?  Can you exalt the name of God in the face of your attackers, accusers or assaulters?  The Bible declares in Psalms 9:1 - I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.  There is something that happens when you begin to praise the Lord.  Believe it or not, praise not only pleases God but it also strengthens you.  The more you praise, the more you take your focus off of the problems.  I know you have been waiting a while to hear from the Lord or see Him move on your behalf, but I’ve come to tell you to start praising the Lord right where you are.

My brother, my sister, is your current problem greater than your God?  Is your current dilemma, greater than your Lord?  Is your storm greater than your God?  Maybe it is time to stop telling God about your problems, your dilemmas, or your storms and start telling your problems, your dilemmas, and your storms about your God.  Until you realize how MIGHTY our God is, the enemy will continue to beat you down.  He will continue to wear on you.  He will continue to throw spears your way.  Beloved, Can You Praise While You Wait?  I say yes you can.  The Bible declares in Psalms7:17 - I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.  Starting today, spend more time in praise and less time in worry.

It Is Coming!

March 16th, 2015

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  After Friday’s devotional, I received a few e-mail responses from individuals wondering how much longer they must wait.  Some of you have been waiting for months and even some for years.  You have waited so long until you have begun to stop believing.  While you know God is real, a part of you wonders if He is ever going to come through for you.  You have watched as people in your inner circle have been blessed and still nothing has come your way.  How is it someone who does not go to church as much as you can be blessed before you?  Why would God bless everyone around you and leave you to wait even longer?  Is this a game?  Is the Lord mad at you?  Is He trying to prove a point?  Somebody please tell me something!  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  This morning while I was listening to the voice of God, He spoke a strong word into my spirit.  (I guess we can make this the continuation from Friday).  Whether you believe it or not, God has not forgotten about you.  He has heard your prayers.  He has seen your tears.  He knows you are tired of waiting and hoping.  He really does know.  Having said all that, I have been instructed to tell you, my friend, It Is Coming!  You are actually closer than you think.  You are further along than you were Friday.  This is why you are enduring so much hell.  This is why the devil is attacking you on every side.  he knows God is getting ready to blow your mind.  The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 7:8 - Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.

My brother, my sister, can you hold on a little longer?  Can you trust God a little longer?  Can you continue to believe in the Lord even when nothing appears to be changing?  Can you still see the Lord in everything, even when things ahead appear cloudy?  I know God can do it.  I know God will do it.  How about you?  Do you believe?  Forget what someone else said, God will honor His Word.  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.  Beloved, It Is Coming!
