Keep Your Ego In Check!

Monday, July 31st, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you spent hours begging God for something you really want?  For some reason you believe life cannot continue without this specific thing.  You wake up thinking about it.  You go to bed thinking about it.  You find yourself daydreaming about it throughout the day.  Have you become overwhelmed by materialism?  Do you feel your success is based upon the car you drive, the house you reside in or the designer clothes you buy?  Do you think people should bow to you because your ego is outrageous?  Be careful!  Do not allow YOUR ego to make YOU feel like God needs YOU.  While God gladly uses us, He can always find someone else to use for His glory.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, Keep Your Ego In Check!  The Bible declares in Proverbs 16:18 - Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.  Never allow people to place you on a pedestal. The acknowledgment you receive from man, comes as a result of God’s favor on your life.  You are a vessel being used, you are not the source.  Check to make sure you are not floating in the clouds.  Be not deceived!  Man will applaud and approve you today, and boo and tear you down tomorrow.  When the Lord opens doors for you, always remember it was Him who made it possible.  When opportunities arise in your life, always remember it was Him who made it possible.  No one else can do for you, what the Lord does for you.  No one else can provide for you the way God does.

Beloved, always remember the Bible declares in 1 Peter 5:6 - Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time:

Present Your Body!

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever felt like God was requiring more from you?  Within, you knew God wanted something else from you.  While you were serving Him with a pleasant spirit, you felt the Lord pulling at your heart for more of you.  You could sense His desire for you to fully commit yourself to Him.  Have you ever heard the Lord tell you to give your all to Him?  For years you gave little or half of yourself to the Lord, BUT you know God is saying more.  No longer could you attempt to manipulate the Lord.  No longer could you try to hide yourself and your gifts from the world.  No longer could you ask God to bless you with more, but you remain unfaithful with the little He gave you to start with (Matthew 25:21).  Is God asking you to commit your entire being unto Him?  Is the Lord asking you to totally trust Him with your life?  Is God telling you to let go and allow Him to have it?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  In our walk with the Lord, there will always come a time when we must decide if we will fully live for the Lord or not.  We cannot treat God like He is some stranger on the street.  We must honor and adore Him.  We must surrender and submit unto Him.  My friend, Present Your Body!  The Bible declares in Romans 12:1 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  You must give yourself to be a sacrifice for the Lord.  You must allow yourself to be used for the glory of God.  You must be willing to do what the Lord says do, go where the Lord sends you and say what the Lord tells you.  You must be available for the Lord’s service.

My brother, my sister, Present Your Body!  Present all that you are to the Lord.  Do not hold back anything from Him.  Until you fully submit and commit to the Lord, He cannot use you like He wants to.  Until you trust Him with everything, He will not release all that He has for you.  How can God trust you with more, if you do not trust Him at all?  How can God bless you with overflow, if you are not faithful with what you have now?  How can God use you fully, if you are ashamed to give His name total praise?  The Bible declares in Jude 1:24-25 - Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.  Beloved, now is the time for you to Present Your Body!  Prayer for Today: Father, allow me to present my body to You as a present.  I trust You with all of me.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

BELIEVE!

Tuesday, July 25th, 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 friend, God truly loves you.  I know times may get hard and the dream appears impossible at times, but the Lord loves you.  I know people come and go, but the Lord loves you.  I know no one else thinks it can be done but you, but the Lord loves you.  I know people are waiting on you to fall on your face, but the Lord loves you.  I know you are recovering from past hurts and pains, but the Lord loves you.  I know you wish today’s storm would hurry past, but the Lord loves you.  I know you pray and beg for more money, but the Lord loves you.  I know you are in the middle of a dilemma, but the Lord loves you.  You may be wondering why I continue to say, ” … but the Lord loves you!”  Many times we forget how much the Lord loves us.  It is through His love that we are able to make it each day.  It is through His love that Christ endured the Cross of Calvary (Matthew 26:39-46, Romans 5:8).  It is through His love that each of our needs are supplied (Philippians 4:19).

My brother, my sister, I know not what you are faced with today, but I do know it is not greater than the Lord.  I am 100% sure God is greater than any problem you will ever face.  As I was talking with the Lord this morning, I asked Him what I should say to His people.  In response to my question, the Lord said one word.  Beloved, the Lord wants us to …

BELIEVE!

Whatever you stand in need of, believe in the Lord today.  It can and it will come to pass.

Don’t Worry Things Are Better Than You Think!

Friday, July 21st, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever wondered how God was going to do it?  Have you ever wondered when it would be done?  Have you ever wondered when things would get better in your life?  Have you ever wondered when it would be fixed?  Have you ever wondered how long you would have to endure?  There are times in our lives when troubles, heartaches and pains cause us to walk with our head hung low.  We know God can and He will, but there are times when the trials and challenges of life press you against the wall.  Your shoulders feel pressed down with everyone’s burdens and loads.  You wonder where refuge will come from.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, I know how it feels to be overwhelmed with the pressures of life.  There seems to be more questions than answers.  More enemies than friends.  More drama than peace.  More warfare than restitution.  You try your best to smile but within you want to break down and cry.  You worry yourself to sleep, even though you know worrying is a sin.  You really wish you could stay in the bed all day and all night.  Sound familiar?  If yes, you are the person God sent me to today.  My friend, Don’t Worry Things Are Better Than You Think!  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:25 - Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?  The Lord has everything under control.  No matter how awful things appear in your life, the Lord has never failed you.

My brother, my sister, what are you dealing with this morning?  Is it personal?  Is it business related?  What dilemma do you find yourself faced with today?  I want to encourage you in the Lord.  God has not forgotten you.  He has not forgotten what you face each day.  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:30 - Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?  Beloved, Don’t Worry Things Are Better Than You Think!  As you go forth today, ask God to allow you to see things the way He sees them.  Your ‘hell’ storm is not a threat to the Master.  Walk in the provision and protection of God today.  You are not defeated but victorious.  Walk upright and bold.  Prayer for Today: Father, help me see things the way You see them.  Help me to never think my problem is great than You.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Walk In The Victory … Its Yours!

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, are you living a defeated life?  Are you operating with a defeated mindset?  Are you behaving with a defeated demeanor?  Have you given up on the one thing God said was yours?  Have you allowed your current situations to cause frustration and anger to consume your beliefs?  Have you surrendered to the enemy when God told you he was a defeated foe?  Are you walking and working with a defeated disposition?  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I have been charged to tell you one thing.  Beloved,

Walk In The Victory

… Its Yours!

It makes no sense if we sing about victory but live a defeated life.  You are the victor not the victim.  ACT LIKE IT … IN JESUS NAME!  Until Monday …

Who Are You Listening To?

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever experienced a trying time in your life and everyone wanted to give you advice?  Whether they knew everything or not, they were very eager to offer their opinion.  Whether their opinion differs from the Word of God or not, they still desire to tell you what to do, when to do it, how to do it and what they would do if it were them.  Be careful about who you have in your ear.  Have you ever had family and friends try to tell you how you should approach a certain situation?  Understand, some of their advice is beneficial but some of it is not.  You must make sure you do not allow people to push you or advise you away from the Lord.  Always know this: People are quick to give you advice when they see you in a dilemma but they are usually slow to receive advice when they experience the same dilemma.  Do you know someone like this?  Are you this person?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Who Are You Listening To?  Who are you taking advice from?  Who do you run to for instructions and guidance?  Do you realize if you depend upon anyone else more than God, that person becomes your god.  I am not attempting to discourage you from taking advice from loved ones around you.  That is not the intent of today’s devotional.  The purpose is for you to be aware of the advice given and make sure it is complimenting the Word of God.  When people attempt to advise you, can you hear God in their voice?  The Bible declares in John 10:27 - My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me:  There are times when God will send people to offer you sound advice and Godly instructions.  These are the people sent to help you along the way.  But there are also times when satan will send people to speak death, discouragement, confusion and frustration into your ears.  These are the people you avoid at any cost.

My brother, my sister, Who Are You Listening To?  Do you realize God has a special anointing on your life?  Do you realize satan would do anything to keep you from walking in the fullness of God?  Do you realize there are people who are determined to destroy you?  Be not deceived by people’s smiles and “Christian” hugs.  The enemy knows how to disguise himself to look saved, act saved, sound saved and walk saved.  The Bible declares in Matthew 7:15 - Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Beloved, ask God to increase your spiritual discernment.  You are on an assignment for the Lord.  Everyone cannot handle how God is using you.  BEWARE CHILD OF GOD … BEWARE.  Prayer for Today: Father, please increase my discernment that I may be able to see through people and their motives.  Lord, remove from me those who mean me no good.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!
