JUST TRUST GOD!

December 13th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, this devotional will not be the normal length but I pray it is just as impacting.  As I was walking from the truck yesterday morning, the Holy Spirit pressed this heavily in my spirit to share with each of you.  Beloved, whatever it is …

JUST TRUST GOD!

He knows what is best for each one of us.

When Is Enough, Enough?

December 12th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself repeating the same cycle in your life?  For some reason you found yourself hanging with the same jealous people.  You attended the same boring events week after week.  You continued to make the same mistakes day after day.  No matter how awful it made you feel, you constantly engaged in the same activities.  Have you ever found yourself having to repeat yourself all the time?  No matter where you go, you find yourself having to always give the same instructions and rules.  As a result, frustration and anger consume your mind and body.  There are times in each of our lives when we find ourselves doing the same things, the same way all the time.  We hate when people bring it to our attention but within we know they’re telling us the truth.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, When Is Enough, Enough?  When do you get to the point where you are tired of doing the same things?  When do you get to the point when you are tired of committing the same sins?  I have learned that we as a people are funny.  We love to point out someone’s faults and shortcomings, but we hate to have ours pointed out.  The Bible declares in Hebrews 12:1 - Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, 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.  There comes a time in each of our lives when we must make an internal decision.  This decision must come from within us not someone else.  Until this happens, we will never stop the cycle.

My brother, my sister, When Is Enough, Enough?  When do you get tired of having God convict you about the same things each day?  When do you get tired of behaving in hypocrisy?  When do you get tired of preaching good but living wrong?  The same Bible you read to find an answer to your questions, is the same Bible you must live according to. The Bible declares in Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  After all you have endured in your life, when do you get tired of riding the roller-coasters of life?  Beloved, it is time for you to declare that the cycle will end TODAY!

Father, Grant Unto Me My Daily Bread!

December 11th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, do you realize God wants you to have a wonderful day today?  Do you realize God has blessed you with everything you will need for today?  Do you realize even when the unforeseen circumstances arise, God has anointed you to handle them?  Do you realize the things that seem chaotic to you are not chaotic to the Lord?  Do you realize today will be what you make of it?  Having said this, I want to share something important with you.  As you prepare to handle each day, declare this statement out of your mouth:

Father, Grant Unto

Me My Daily Bread!

The Bible declares in Matthew 6:11 - Give us this day our daily bread.  Beloved, yesterday’s manna will not be useful for today’s challenges.  God has everything you need in today’s daily bread.  All you have to do is ask for it (James 4:2).  Prayer for Today: Father, Grant Unto Me My Daily Bread.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

This Season Will Not Last Always!

December 8th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever sat back and watched how the seasons changed?  One minute it is burning hot outside (summer), then you begin to see leaves falling off the trees and the wind blowing heavier (fall).  After that you begin to see ice and/or snow surrounding your home and your car (winter).  After a few months you see the snow and ice melting and now the flowers are blossoming and the grass is turning green again (spring).  As it is in the natural, so it is in the spiritual.  There are seasons when it appears as if everything is falling apart; but there are also seasons when your harvest is blossoming forth.   Do you realize we have not been promised that everyday we would experience sunshine?  Each of us will have to endure some rainy seasons.  No matter who you are, or who you know, the rain falls on the just as well as the unjust (Matthew 5:45).

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, This Season Will Not Last Always!  The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 3:1 - To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:  I know how it feels to find myself stuck in the middle of “hellstorms”.  You did not see it coming and you do not know when it will leave.  As you engage in conversation with loved ones, you hear the testimonies of how they made it out.  The more they talk, the more you wonder when it will be your turn.  In the midst of whatever you are going through, you must understand God is still in control.  Just because things appear chaotic in your eyes, does not mean God is having a nervous breakdown.  To the contrary, when things are at their worse, God is at His best (2 Corinthians 12:9).

My brother, my sister, can you hold on a little while longer?  Can you see the light shining at the end of the tunnel?  Can you sense God’s presence in the midst of your storm?  I hope you can, but if you cannot just know God is still there.  He will never leave nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).  Even when family members and close friends depart, God is still a very present help in the time of trouble (Psalms 46:1).  Beloved, This Season Will Not Last Always!  In the words of the old hymnal, “The storm is passing over … Hallelujah!”  Prayer for Today: Father, endow me with the perseverance needed to hold on until my breakthrough takes place.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Preach to Yourself!

December 7th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  There are times in each of our lives when we find ourselves faced with tough decisions and great opposition.  Its not that you are a bad person, but as you proceed in life you eventually experience trouble, heartaches and pains.  Job declares ”Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble (Job 14:1).”  Have you ever experienced times in your life when it felt as if everything and everyone was fighting against you?  No matter how hard you tried, it felt as if you had an extreme weight upon your shoulder.  If felt as if something or someone was trying to keep you down.  Have you ever experienced a lonely season?  This is a season where no one appears to understand you or your faith.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do you realize there are many people who live there lives hoping and craving the approval of their peers?  They define their success on the words of man and not the affirmation of God.  No matter what you experience in life, you must be able to minister to yourself.  You must be able to encourage yourself.  You must be able to remind yourself that God has not brought you this far to allow things to fall apart.  My friend, Preach To Yourself!  The Bible declares in 1 Samuel 30:6 - And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.  During the rough times of life, you must be able to preach back to yourself.  

My brother, my sister, what are you currently going through?  What dilemma do you find yourself in the midst of?  What circumstance or situation are you battling with?  The same way you preach to others, now you must preach to yourself.  The same way you tell others to trust in the Lord, now it is time for you to repeat it to yourself.  Now it is time for you to walk out what you have been speaking out.  Beloved, Preach To Yourself!  The Bible declares in Psalms 124:1-3 - If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say; 2 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us: 3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:  No matter how bad things appear right now, God has placed power within you to overcome whatever it is.  Prayer for Today: Father, help me to hold on even when my flesh wants to give up.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

All Things Are Working Together!

December 6th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever wondered how things would and could be working together for your good?  You always hear people saying this, but within you often wonder how this could be possible.  You analyze your current storms and there is no way things could be working together for the good … so you think.  Have you ever walked the floors at night trying to figure out how you would make ends meet?  You have gone through every name and phone number in your address book, but you cannot nor have not found anyone to help you out.  Its not that they do not want to assist you but their also in need of a breakthrough.  Have you ever found yourself going through your checkbook wondering where all the money has gone?  At the beginning of the month you had an abundance of funds, but now on the 6th of this month you find yourself scraping.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Isn’t it amazing how God can hear your prayers and send encouragement to you through someone else?  During the time of prayer and meditation you often wonder if the Lord is really paying attention to what you are going through.  For some reason you believe when you go through storms God automatically turns His face from you.  Beloved, All Things Are Working Together!  Just because you cannot see it happening does not mean it is not.  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.  During the rough times in your life you must know, without any doubt, God is still in control.  The way you view your current problems and the way God sees them are totally different.

My brother, my sister, the things we worry ourselves over are powerless when compared with our God and His power.  I care not what the enemy has said or attempted to do, what it takes man years to fix, can be resolved instantly if God so chooses.  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, All Things Are Working Together!  I do not send you this devotional as a person who has never experienced trying times.  I have endured eviction notices, no money, no food, betrayal, unemployment, etc. but during these seasons God has always shown Himself strong in my life.  I want you to know the same God who has done it for me, is the same God who can and will do it for you.  My Prayer For You: Father, help my friend understand you are still in control.  Even when things appear chaotic, you are still in control.  Thank you for this.  In name of Jesus … Amen!

God Will Supply All Your Needs!

December 5th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever faced financial hardships?  Have you ever had more bills than money?  Have you ever felt as though you owed everyone?  How did you handle this situation?  Do you attempt to run and hide?  Do you seek the Lord for guidance and assistance?  So often in our lives, we find ourselves pressed up against the wall.  Everything and everyone seems to be against us.  When you have a lot, people consider themselves friends of yours.  When your well runs dry, those same friends vacate the premises.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, today you need to know, God Will Supply All Your Needs!  Right now it seems unbearable.  Quitting has entered your mind.  You feel as though no one understands what you are faced with.  The Bible declares in Philippians 4:19 - But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  When you are faced with a season of lack, you must not waver in your faith.  The Lord is able to do exactly what you need Him to do.  Just because things seem difficult in your eyes, does not mean God cannot conquer it.  The Bible declares in Ephesians 3:20 - Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.  God Will Supply All Your Needs!  When no one believes it can be done, it is then that God steps in.

My brother, my sister, the Bible declares in Luke 1:37 - For with God nothing shall be impossible.  There are no limits to what God can supply in your life.  When times become overwhelming, the enemy will always attempt to steal, kill or destroy you.  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.  God Will Supply All Your Needs!  What are you in need of today?  Have you asked the Father for it?  Do you believe He can supply it?  Stand on His word.  Rest on His word.  The Bible declares in Numbers 23:19 - God 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?  Thought to Remember: The test is not about God’s abilities, but about your faith.

One Question For You!

December 1st, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  In the presence of the Lord this morning, I heard the Lord saying, “restore order!”  For so long we have done things a certain way (tradition) because it was very comfortable to us.  We had no regrets.  We suffered no guilt or shame.  “No longer” says the Lord.  We must RESTORE ORDER in the name of Jesus Christ.  How can we proceed the same way?  Have we forgotten Jesus?  Have we forgotten the Lord’s sacrifice(s) for us.  Allow me to ask you one question.

Are You Doing

What  God Called

You To Do?

If not, what will it take?

The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:16 - A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.

Can You Still Tell The Lord, “Thank You?”

November 30th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, …

  • After all you have been through in your life,
  • After all people put you through,
  • After all the lies and vicious rumors spread about you,
  • After all the storms and tribulations you have endured,
  • After all the dilemmas you overcame,
  • After all the roller coaster rides you experienced through relationships,
  • After all the traps the devil set against you,
  • After all the doubters and haters you conquered,
  • After all the backstabbing and backbiting you bounced back from,
  • After all the “church folk” who questioned your calling and judged your anointing,
  • After all the bills you were able to pay when it did not look promising,
  • After all the nights you cried yourself to sleep,
  • After all the hell you experienced just this year,

Can You Still

Tell The Lord, 

Thank You?”
