Do Not Waste Your Blessings

October 31st, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  After all your praying and pleading, have you finally received your blessing?  Was it worth all you endured?  Are you being faithful over it?  So often in our lives, we ask God for the world.  We desire for God to give us whatever we ask Him for.  No matter how unrealistic we may sound at times, we expect God to perform the act.  Many never desire a relationship with the Lord, His blessings and His favor is all they want.  Does this sound like you?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do Not Waste Your Blessings!  Many people receive the blessings they ask the Lord for, but never enjoy it because of wasteful behavior.  Lack of wisdom, lack of understanding, pride, impure motives, are a few ways people waste their blessings.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 4:7 - Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.  Allow me to ask you a question: Why do you seek spiritual advice from unspiritual people?  The advice and counseling of man has caused many people to waste their blessings.  Just because something or someone sounds good, does not make it of God.  Do Not Waste Your Blessings, on ungodly things.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 8:11 - For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.  

My brother, my sister, are you an unfaithful steward toward the blessings of God?  Have you kept your promise to God?  When you wanted God to bless you, you had no problem promising your life.  Now that you have received from the Lord, have you given Him your life?  Have you forgotten about the Lord?  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.  Do Not Waste Your Blessings!  Thought to Remember: If God has given you the blessing, do not waste it on ungodly things!

You Are Blessed to Bless!

October 30th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever focused your attention on one area in your life, until another area went neglected?  Maybe you spend a lot of time focused on your personal matters until you ignore the matters of your children.  Have you ever felt it was all about you?  No matter what anyone said, you only cared about you.  Have you ever took time to assist someone who was in need?  Do you realize God has blessed you to be a blessing to someone else?  Are you selfish with your blessings?  Are you spiritually obese (overweight with the Word because you do not share it with anyone else)?  What keeps you from sharing your gift with someone else?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, You Are Blessed to Bless!  You may disagree with this but it is true.  Do you not know that God sends blessings to you, that they may go through you for someone else?  God has not blessed you just for you.  There is someone else God wants to bless through you.  The Bible declares Luke 6:38 - Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.  In order for you to continue receiving, you must learn how to give.  So often we think we can store away all the many things God has blessed us with.  We begin to think foolishly.  We fail to realize how blessed we are.  You Are Blessed to Bless!  You are blessed to share with other people.  The Bible declares in Luke 12:48 - … For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 

My brother, my sister, can God trust you with the blessings?  Will you consider others?  Is it all about me, myself and I?  You Are Blessed to Bless!  Think about the time(s) you found yourself in need of assistance.  The time when you were experiencing a dry season.  Who did God use to bless you?  If you really think about it, when we were headed to hell, God sent His best blessing to redeem us.  The Bible declares in Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  You Are Blessed to Bless!   Who has God told you to help today?  Are you being disobedient?  Is your answered prayer hindered by your failure to help someone else?  The Bible declares in Matthew 25:40 - And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.  What are you waiting on?  Thought For Today: You Are Blessed to Bless!

Why Worry?

and 

If You’re Going To Worry,

Do You Believe?

  • Do you believe in the Word of God?
  • Do you believe God’s Word is not a lie?
  • Do you believe whatever answer you are seeking can be found in the Word of God?
  • Do you believe God speaks to you through His Word?
  • Do you believe the victory you are searching for has already been won through the Word of God?
  • Do you believe Jesus Christ was the Word made flesh and dwelt among us?
  • Do you believe God’s Word cannot return unto Him void but it must accomplish what it was sent to do?
  • Do you believe God’s Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path?
  • Do you believe the promises God has made to you can be found in His Word?

Beloved, it is important for you to understand how powerful the Word of God is in our lives.  It was not given to us for showmanship.  It was not given to be misused.  The Word of God is our weapon against the devil and his demonic attacks.  If you do not have the Word of God in you, you’re already losing the battle!

The Bible declares in Matthew 8:8 - The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

We Are Still Blessed!

October 27th, 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, I believe it is important for you and me to remember how blessed we really are.

  • No matter how awful things may appear in our lives, we are still blessed.
  • No matter how many traps have been set against you, we are still blessed.
  • No matter how many friends betray you, we are still blessed.
  • No matter what lies the enemy attempts to whisper in your ears, we are still blessed.
  • No matter who does not believe in your dreams, we are still blessed.
  • No matter how severe the storm is in your life, we are still blessed.
  • No matter what the last doctor’s report revealed, we are still blessed.
  • No matter how embarrassing your bank account appears, we are still blessed.
  • No matter who questions your anointing, we are still blessed.
  • No matter how many lies are spoken against you, we are still blessed.

Beloved, you must understand your blessings are not threatened by day-to-day activities.  No matter what lies the devil has spoken to you, if God calls you blessed … YOU ARE BLESSED!  The Bible declares in Numbers 23:20 - Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

Remember: There is someone, somewhere worse off than you!

Turn It Over To Jesus

October 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, life can be the best thing and it can also be the worse thing.  It can bring the best people and it can bring the worse people.  It can bring a smile to your face and it can cause tears to run from your eyes.  It can present many opportunities and it can pose many obstacles.  Do you realize each and every day there are people around you dealing with more than you are?  No matter how they smile in your face, their dealing with extreme circumstances.  I have come to realize we, as a people, have learned how to fake our smiles.  We act as if everything is okay, but within we are seconds from a breakdown.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

Beloved, no matter how life’s circumstances change, you can always count on the Lord.  No matter how people behave toward you, you can always count on the Lord.  No matter how stressed out you become, you can always count on the Lord.  The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Today, as your day unfolds, I need for you to understand there is nothing you deal with that God cannot handle for you.  Today, it is time for you to realize you have tried everything and everyone.  Now it is time for you to stand on the promises of God.  My friend, Turn It Over To Jesus … He’ll Work It Out!  If you do not believe me, just think back over your own life.  Where you are today, seemed impossible years ago.  After all the things you did, the places you went, people you hung around, activities you performed.  If He was God then, He is God now!

The Bible declares in Malachi 3:6 - For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Work Diligently For The Lord!

October 22nd, 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 we are to be witnesses for the Lord wherever we go?  Not just at church, but at work, in the mall, the grocery store, family reunions, when we are upset about a certain matter.  Yes it is difficult to do at times, but whenever someone sees you they should see the reflection of God’s glory surrounding you.  Do you realize you can turn more people to the Lord by upholding integrity and maintaining Godly character than spreading gossip and being deceptive?  Even if you do not love your current place of employment, while God has you there you are commissioned to be a witness for Him.  (FYI: Complaining about the job does not make God move any faster!)

Beloved, wherever you go, whatever assignment is given to you, …

Work Diligently For The Lord!

Question: If Christians are leading the gossip and complaining sessions, then whose testifying about the Lord’s goodness?

Focus …

October 21st, 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, I do not want to take too much of your time today but I need to speak this word into your spirit.  Beloved, instead of worrying about what someone else is doing,

FOCUS ON THE

ASSIGNMENT(S) GOD

GAVE YOU!

My friend, there is too much moaning and groaning taking place in the body of Christ.  There is too much finger pointing and criticizing within the body.  If each of us would focus on the work God has anointed us to perform, we would have less time to gossip about others.  As Christians, we must … no, we need to set the right examples.  The Bible declares in 1 Thessalonians 4:11 - And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

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?
