Are You Available for Service?

October 20th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever had a desire to do whatever it took to please the Lord?  No matter what people said or how they reacted toward you, pleasing the Lord was the only thing you desired to do.  Have you ever had people treat you different after you made a committment to do the Lord’s will?  As long as you were doing what they wanted you to do, there were no problems.  As soon as you took a stand for the Lord Jesus Christ, everything and everyone began to attack you.  It is amazing to see how much warfare we endure after saying ‘yes’ to the Lord.  The enemy knows God has great things in store for us.  he knows God has anointed us for greater works.  he knows this and for these reasons attacks are sent your way.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Are You Available for Service?  One of my mentors in life told me when you are in the reserves, you have instructions to always be prepared for [that] phone call.  The phone call comes to inform you that it is time to report for duty.  No matter where you are or what you are doing, you must make your way to the instructed destination.  Just as the worldly system has rules and guidelines, so does God.  When we accept the Lord as our personal Savior, we become a part of the ‘Army of God.’  While the world places a phone call when it is time to report, as Christians, we are expected to always be on duty.  There are people who come into our contact each day.  Are you impacting them for the Lord?  Are you changing their lives for the glory of God?  Can the Lord trust you to encourage someone else?

My brother, my sister, Are You Available for Service?  This is the question, what is your answer?

Love The Person You Are!

October 17th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  So often in our lives we find ourselves trying very hard to make everyone accept us.  We change our appearances to feel accepted.  We alter the way we dress to be accepted.  We hang with certain people to be accepted.  Have you ever wondered why we change who we are to be accepted by others, but no one changes who they are to be accepted by us?  Why are we always disguising ourselves as something we are not?  Do you realize God made you to be different than the people around you?  It was not His intentions for you to be exactly like the person next to you.  Understand, when you try to be like someone else you become a cheap copy.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Love The Person You Are!  Stop trying to be someone God said you are not.  Who you are is a blessing to the people God placed around you.  Each and every day God sends people into your life so that you may be a blessing to them.  If you continue to alter the person you are, when do you have the time to bless other people for the glory of God?  The Bible declares in 1 Corinthians 10:31 - Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.  Child of God, please never forget all that we do is for the glory of our God.  It is not about us.  It is not about trophies, man’s accolades or how many people recognize you in the mall.  This is all about the Lord Jesus Christ.

My brother, my sister, who are you trying to be like?  Are you trying to make changes to the person God ordained for you to be?  Why are you making alterations to yourself?  Beloved, Love The Person You Are!  Stop letting people’s comments make you want to be someone you are not.  When you look in the mirror, love the person you see.  The Bible declares in Genesis 1:27 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  From this day forward, if you desire to become something else, try becoming more like Christ.  Prayer for Today: Father, help me to love the person You made me to be.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Think Before YOU Speak!

October 15th, 2014

Its a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  While it is true that God anoints us to speak life into other people, there are times when we use our tongues for evil purposes.  Sometimes we say things we should not.  We respond in ways we should not.  We recite things we should not.  Do you realize it is hypocritical for us to encourage one person with our tongue and then discourage someone with the same tongue?

The Bible declares in James 3:8-9 - But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.  My brother, my sister, on today I have been instructed to pass this word along to you.

Think Before YOU Speak!

God does not want you to concern yourself with the way other people use their tongues, when you are misusing yours as well.  Before you attempt to convict someone else, make sure you have yourself in order.

He Knows When, Where, Why, and How!

October 14th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  When you woke up this morning how did you feel?  Were you begging for five more minutes of sleep or did you hit the ground running?  Were you dragging throughout the house or were you bouncing off the walls with excitement?  Many times in our life, we plead with God in prayer for certain things we feel we must have.  Every morning and night we remind God of our prayer request, as if He has forgotten.  For some reason we feel as if life cannot continue unless we get this specific request answered.  Do you realize for every blessing there is a condition?  I cannot live any way I choose and expect God to pour out an overflow of blessings.  I cannot treat people nasty and expect God to grant me more favor.  The reason God blesses us, is for us to bless other people.  Did you know this?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know you really want God to give you that special “thing.”  You have already pictured yourself enjoying it.  You have bragged about it.  You have promised God things you would do if He gave it to you.  Question: What if God does not give it to you, now what?  Does your relationship with our God depend on you getting what you want, when you want it?  My friend, He Knows When, Where, Why, and How!  The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 3:1 - To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:  No matter how ready you claim to be, God knows the right time and the right place.  You must grow to a point that you trust the Lord’s judgment.  You must know the Father has a specific time when He will bring it to pass.

My brother, my sister, what are you asking God for?  If given, will it bring glory to the Lord’s name?  Will it edify the body of Christ?  Will people applaud you or God?  Whatever God bestows upon His people, is granted so we may turn and give His name glory.  If people are cheering for you, something is wrong.  The Bible declares in Philippians 2:10-11 - That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  Beloved, He Knows When, Where, Why, and How!  Remember this: when people thank you for doing something, your answer should be “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!”  Prayer for Today: Father, allow me to always know You know when, where, why and how.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

You Are Special To The Lord!

October 13th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever sat down and wondered why the Lord would want to use you?  Knowing all the mistakes you have made, you wonder why would God want to use me?  The thought of God having a special assignment for your life makes you wonder what He sees in you.  Have you ever wondered why God continues to forgive you, especially when you continue to make the same mistakes over and over again?  No matter how much you mess up, the Lord continues to forgive you and love you.  There is no one in your life, except for God, who would give you so many chances.  Have you ever been driving in your car and you remembered where you use to be?  The tears begin to run down your face.  It is at that point you realize how awesome our God is.  You know if it had not been for Him you would not be alive today.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Never allow people to make you feel as if your life is without purpose.  Never allow circumstances to make you question God’s unconditional (agapé) love.  Never allow the mistakes of your past to rob you of your place in God.  There are no hidden secrets in your life that God does not know about.  There are no stones left unturned when it comes to the Lord.  He knows all and He sees all (and He still wants you.)  My friend, You Are Special To The Lord!  Life can throw some tough darts your way.  Life has a way of dropping you to your knees.  Life can make a strong man cry and a proud man humble.  No matter what life presents, God is still in control.  The Bible declares in 1 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;

My brother, my sister, what are you dealing with today?  What dilemma are you stuck in the middle of?  Are you in a state of confusion?  Be not deceived, the enemy knows you are chosen by God.  He knows the Lord has great work for your mouth, your hands and your feet to do.  This is the reason you face so much opposition.  This is the reason you find yourself being criticized.  Beloved, You Are Special To The Lord!  In spite of what people say about you, feel toward you or think of you, God still has a purpose for you being here.  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.  Prayer for Today: Father, help me to see You in everything.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

The Price of Leadership is Criticism!

October 10th, 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, while studying the Word of God this morning, I noticed something at the end of II Corinthians that I believe will deliver many of us.  So often we feel as if the entire world is against us.  It appears as if everything and everyone is rebelling against what we are attempting to do.  As long as you are doing things your way, no one has a problem with you.  As soon as you commit yourself to the work of the Lord Jesus Christ, attacks come from every angle.  Do you realize the assignment on your life will bring opposition?  The enemy has received a preview of what God has purposed for you to do and he wants to hinder it from coming to pass.  This is the reason so many people despise you.  This is the reason you have difficulty receiving help from your peers.  This is why your ministry experiences so many challenges.

Beloved,

The Price of Leadership is Criticism!

Think back over all you have ever attempted to do for the Lord.  In doing so, I guarantee you will remember great opposition you endured.  This is how you know you are on the right road.  Thank those who criticize you.  It keeps you praying.

There Is Still Good In Bad Situations!

October 9th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever been on the verge of quitting?  It appeared as if everything was going wrong in your life.  For some reason, it seemed as if everything you touched was falling apart.  While everyone around you was enjoying great success, you were fighting to stay above water.  Have you ever wondered how good could come out of a bad situation?  It is not that you do not believe, but naturally you cannot see how or where the good will come from.  Everything and everyone appears to be fighting against you.  Have you ever had people who thought they knew why you were going through what it is you are going through?  These are the people who think they know everything about everybody.  Beware of these people.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know how it feels to endure troubling times.  I know how it feels to wonder if you are going through all by yourself.  I know how it feels to have people speak good of you one day and have the same people speak negative about you the next day.  I can relate to having more bills than money coming in.  I can relate to walking the floors at night, wondering how you are going to make it from day to day.  I have been there, but in the midst of being there I learned something important.  My friend, There Is Still Good In Bad Situations!  Do you realize God does not neglect you when things are chaotic in your life?  The Bible declares in Psalms 121:3 - He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.  Just because things are not going your way, does not mean God has vacated the premises.  During these times, make sure you have not strayed away from Him.

My brother, my sister, what are you going through today?  What dilemma do you find yourself faced with?  Are you on the verge of giving up?  Do you no longer believe God can work things out for you?  At this point in time, I rebuke the spirit of quitting in the name of Jesus!  You cannot give up.  You cannot walk away.  If God started the work, He is God enough to finish it … no matter how things appear at this time.  The Bible declares in 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:  Beloved, There Is Still Good In Bad Situations!  Stop allowing people to sway you.  Stop listening to the crowd.  What is the Lord telling you to do?  It may not sound right, but if God said it … do it!  He has the best in store for you. Prayer for Today: Father, help me to understand there is good in bad situations. As long as You are there, I can and will come out on top.  In Jesus name … Amen!

Are You Living A Life Pleasing To God?

October 8th, 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, tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  Please stop living as if you have time to play.  All you have is right now.  Question:

Are You Living A Life Pleasing To God?

Prayer for Today: Father, help me live a life that is pleasing in your sight.  If there are any areas of my life you dislike, please purge it out of me.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Stop Trying To Do Everything By Yourself!

October 7th, 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 the Lord desires to be your guide?  He desires to lead and guide you according to His perfect will.  He desires to grant unto you all you will ever have need of.  While praying this morning, the Lord instructed me to pass along this message.  Beloved,

Stop Trying To Do Everything By Yourself!

Do you not know God is aware of your needs?  Do you not know God will put people in your life to bless you?  You are not alone in this matter.  Whatever you are dealing with today, understand God has a plan perfectly designed for you.
