Word for the Weekend - (May 31-June 1, 2014)

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Isaiah 48:17 (NLT) - This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.

Point to Remember: The Lord teaches you what is needed to pass the test of life and He shows you the way you should go. Therefore, if you fail the test or wander into a dead end, it’s because you refused to learn or listen. (SN: He teaches what He knows and leads where He’s been.)

TRUST HIM!!!

Friday, May 30th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning as I was listening to the Lord speak to me, He instructed me to tell His people something very important.  No matter how things appear, or how you feel, or what others have said, or how negative it looks now, or if no one else believes it can get better, the Lord told me to you to… 

TRUST HIM !!!

That’s it.  That’s the word from the Lord for today. 

Scripture Reading for Today: Psalm 37:3-5 & Proverbs 3:5,6

May God Bless you at Your point of need!

Early Morning Worship!

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself walking the floor late at night or during the early part of the morning?  For some reason you were not asleep.  Maybe there was something or someone heavy on your mind.  You found yourself pacing the floor in intercession.  Have you ever found yourself up at night because of worry and anxiety?  Once again you are concerned about having enough money to pay each bill.  You know, from before, that God is able to provide for you.  The last time this happened the Lord faithfully intervened, but for some reason you do not believe He can or will do it again.  As much as God proves Himself, you continuously battle fear and a lack of trust.  Have you been there?  Are you there now? 

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Today I want to share with you something I found that really works.  My friend, it is Early Morning Worship!  It is the worship that occurs when everything and everyone in your home is sound asleep.  It is the worship that occurs when it appears that nature has taken a break from noise.  It is a time when no phone is ringing, no computer is running, no children are begging, no job is demanding, no spouse is complaining, no bill collectors are calling and no food is spoiling.  It is the time when you feel the presence of God the most.  There’s something about the early morning that keeps you wanting more each day.  The Bible declares in Psalms 63:1 - O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;  You have come to notice how well your day unfolds when you have spent the one-on-one time with the Lord.

My brother, my sister, the same way you long for God in the early morning, God also longs to be with you.  Do you understand how much God loves you?  His love goes far beyond mere words.  He is an action God.  He desires to prove Himself to us.  Just as a husband longs to spend quality time with His wife, so does the Lord long to spend uninterrupted time with you and me.  Beloved, it is Early Morning Worship!  It is the time when you are able to lay prostrate in the presence of God and no ushers are trying to pick you up.  It is the time when you can cry out to the Lord and you do not have hundreds of eyes staring at you.  The Bible declares in Psalms 90:14 - O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.  As you go forth today, remember this: Praise comes from your mouth but worship comes from your heart.  Starting this day, stop sleeping in late but get up early and seek the Lord.

No one knows …

Wednesday, May 28th, 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, this devotional will be short but very important.  

  • No one really knows how bad things are in your life. 
  • No one knows how difficult times can be for you. 
  • No one knows the nights you cry yourself to sleep, only to wake up still crying. 
  • No one knows how you rob Peter to pay Paul (struggle from paycheck to paycheck.) 
  • No one knows the negative reports you consistently receive from the doctor’s office. 
  • No one knows the burdens you bear each and every day. 
  • No one knows the mental bondage you fight repeatedly. 
  • No one knows how much you worry about having enough to take care of your family. 
  • No one knows … BUT THE LORD! 

Beloved, no matter how bad you feel or things appear, God has not forgotten you (Hebrews 13:5).  As you go forth today, walk in the assurance that everything you need God has it.  I DECLARE PEACE INTO YOUR SPIRIT IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!  

Scripture Reading for Today: Ephesians 3:20

Do Not Lose Heart

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  As your brother in the Lord Jesus Christ, I want to take this time to encourage you.  My brother, my sister, God is not through with you yet.  Do Not Lose Heart!  No matter how awful things feel or appear, do not lose sight on the promises God has made to you. 

  • There is much more work for your hands to do (Philippians 1:6).  
  • There are many more blessings God has in store for you (Deuteronomy 28:2). 
  • There are things you have not seen or heard but God plans to do just for you (1 Corinthians 2:9). 
  • There are many opportunities God has orchestrated just for you (Genesis 18:14). 

You cannot give up now.  You must not bow out.  You need to remain in the race.  You shall overcome.  Over the three-day holiday weekend, you should have taken time out for yourself.  Time to sit and hear what the Lord wanted to say to you.  Do not lose heart because you are seeing things through natural eyes.  Beloved, your problem has a problem and His name is Jesus (Philippians 2:10-11).  Remember, God did not create you to quit!

Word for the 3-Day Weekend - (May 24-26, 2014)

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Proverbs 13:3 (NLT) - Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.

Point to Remember: Stop talking so much. (SN: You should listen twice as much as you talk … PERIOD!)

When You’re Left Alone …

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever tried your best to be there for your family and friends, even though it meant you had to go without?  Every time they called, you were there to rescue.  No matter what time, what day or what dilemma you did what you could to be right by there side.  Isn’t it amazing how sometimes the same people never do the same thing(s) for you in return?  They know you need assistance, but there’s always a lame excuse as to why they cannot help you out.  When they were in need, you were there.  But now that you are in need, they find reasons not to be there for you.  Do you realize being in a storm is the worse place to find out who your real friends are, but it is usually when you find this out.  While things are great, everyone is smiling.  When chaos strikes, everyone exits the back door.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Please do not think you are the only person who has ever faced neglect and loneliness.  Even our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ experienced this.  When he came into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the people cheered, “Hosanna, Hosanna” but later that same week the people yelled, “Crucify Him!”  There are many people who change their views just like the weather changes.  Beware of these people.  My friend, When You’re Left Alone … understand God is setting you up for something spectacular.  The Bible declares in Hebrews 13:5 - Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  There are certain places God will take you that your current surroundings will not be able to go.  There certain people who are around you right now that you know God is pulling you away from. 

My brother, my sister, let nothing and no one hinder you from having and enjoying all God has for you.  The Bible declares in Romans 8:37-39 - Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  38 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.  Beloved, When You’re Left Alone … do not get mad at God but thank Him for what He is preparing you for.  Please do not misunderstand what is being said.  There are certain people who mean you well.  However, there are also certain people who are determined to destroy you.  During your “left alone” time, God is trying to reveal this to you.  Pay attention!

As You Wait …

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Beloved,

  • As you wait in expectation for God to blow your mind;
  • As you wait for God to give you direction regarding your next move;
  • As you wait for God to prove your enemies wrong;
  • As you wait for God to send the overflow;
  • As you wait for God to release His anointing;
  • As you wait for God to give you the “go ahead” signal;
  • As you wait for God to heal you from what the doctors said would never be cured;
  • As you wait for God to raise you up from your current depressed state;
  • As you wait for the answer to your prayer;
  • As you stand still and see the salvation of the Lord;

Learn how to say,

“Thank You In Advance!”

(Do not wait until the blessing comes, thank God now!)

You Can Break The Cycle

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Are you currently stuck in a rut?  You find yourself doing the same thing, the same way, expecting the same results.  You never take any chances.  Each day you wake up, you live as though the entire world is out to cheat and manipulate you.  No matter what people or God say, you still do not trust.  Are you currently stuck in the same routine each and every day?  You wake up at the same time.  Take the same route to work and to church.  You eat the same meals on the same days at the same time.  Are you currently caught between two worlds … YOUR world and everyone else’s world?  You do not feel a need to change.  In your eyes, there is no problem with you.  Everyone else needs to change.  Its your world (so you think)!  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  What makes you think the world is yours?  What makes you think the sun rises only when you wake up?  Truthfully speaking, before you knew you, God was already existing.  God does not need you (us), you (we) need God.  Do you realize the problem you are facing?  My friend, You Can Break The Cycle!  [cycle = a periodically repeated sequence of events.]  You can break the stronghold that prevents you from living the abundant life God promised in John 10:10.  You can operate with peace of mind.  The Bible declares in John 8:36 - If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.  It is time for you and I to break the cycle(s) in our lives.  It is time for us to destroy the generational curses that started with our great-grandparents.  It is time for us to stop allowing our parent’s sins to consume our everyday activities. 

My brother, my sister, today I declare liberty in the name of Jesus.  [liberty = the right to act in a manner of one’s own choosing; The state of not being in confinement or servitude; Freedom.]  Are you tired of living the same way each and every day?  Are you tired of being so predictable?  Due to your fears of failure, you refuse to step out of the box.  Child of God, in the words of Tye Tribbett, “You can change, if you want!”  You Can Break The Cycle!  You can create your own legacy.  You do not have to fight the warfare left by your past generations.  Beloved, it is time to live and not die.  You are purposed by God.  The spell has been broken off of your life.  You are free to move.  The Bible declares in 2 Corinthians 3:17 - Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  Do not allow the blessings of God to be held up because you find yourself stuck in a cycle.  Be free in the name of Jesus.
