Let No One …

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, many times as we go through our daily task, circumstances and situations present themselves.  Whether you are prepared for them or not, they will still arise.  Depending upon your mindset (refer back to Monday’s devotional), the unforeseen circumstances could be the difference between overflow and overwhelmed.  You may not agree with me but circumstances and situations have a way of pushing you closer to God and His Word.  On a day-to-day basis, many of us face tough decisions at work, financial decisions at home, emotional decisions within our marriages and relationships, mental decisions resulting from death, sickness or change, academic decisions surrounding our education, etc.  Each day we find ourselves having to make choices that we would love to avoid.

Can you relate to the above?  If no, please forgive me for wasting your time.  If yes, this morning I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, the Lord has sent me with a “right now” word for you.

LET NOTHING NOR NO ONE

STEAL FROM YOU 

(John 10:10)!

Let nothing nor no one steal your joy, your peace, your anointing, your love for others, your character, your faith, your hope, your dreams, your vision, your integrity, your plans, your goals, your day, your blessings, your increase.

It Really Works!

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever had someone tell you things would not work out for you and your family?  With no remorse or hesitation, they looked you right in the face and said things would never get better.  No guilt, no forgiveness and no sympathy, this person spoke negativity into your life.  How amazing it is for people to speak into you what they rebuke people from speaking into them.  How amazing it is that we rebuke anything that looks like the devil, but at times we can behave in the same manner.  How can someone tell you things can never get better, especially knowing you are a child of God?  Have you ever desired to give up but within your spirit you knew it was not over yet?  Your surroundings appeared dark and bleak, but you knew God was up to something.  No one else could see it or believe it, but you knew it to be true.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do you understand the Word of God is powerful?  Do you understand God speaks heavily to His people through His Word?  Do you understand the Word of God is authoritative, as well as infallible (without lies)?  No matter what other religions teach, there is only one word you should stand upon and that is the Word of God.  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.  My friend, It Really Works!   What?  The Word of God … that’s what!  No matter where you find yourself in life, the Word of God is a road-map.  No matter how bad you feel about current circumstances, the Word of God is comforting.  No matter what the doctors tell you, the Word of God gives the final word.

My brother, my sister, what are you dealing with today?  What situation or dilemma do you find yourself faced with this morning?  Have you taken it to the Lord in prayer?  Have you totally released it to the Lord?  Are you standing on the Word of God?  Beloved, It Really Works!  The Bible declares in Proverbs 30:5 - Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.  It matters not what your friends and loved ones think, if the Word of God declares it … watch God bring it to pass.  As you go forth today, remember this one important thing: The Word of God will work … if you work it!

A NEW MINDSET!

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Are you seeking promotion on your job?  Are you seeking increase in your bank account?  Are you seeking overflow in your ministry?  Are you desiring more than enough?  Have you grown tired of the same thing, the same way, day after day?  Are you requesting double for your trouble?  Are seeking new employment?  My brother, my sister, all of these things are very possible with the Lord.  This I know to be true.  However, many times we miss our promotion, our increase, our overflow, our desires, our newness and our double because of our old way of thinking.  Until you allow the Word of God to transform your thought process, you will always find yourself in deep trouble.  The Bible declares in Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Beloved, it all starts with …

A NEW MINDSET!

That which you are believing God for is there, but your mindset must be changed to receive it.  You cannot speak about freedom but maintain a slaves mindset.  Your words and your thoughts must compliment one another.  As you proceed today, ask God to give you a new mindset to begin to think about things the way He does.  If your mindset was better, would the job be that bad?

Without Faith

Monday, August 28th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever had someone tell you your faith was ridiculous?  Because of your unwavering belief and trust in the Lord, someone had the nerve to tell you God would not do that for you.  Just because they could not see it happening in their life, now they’re trying to discourage you from believing.  Have you ever shared your dreams with someone and later wished you never opened your mouth?  Your excitement pushed you to share with others but as time went out you realized everyone was not as happy about it as you were.  Whether it was jealousy, animosity or disbelief, for some reason this person did not have the same excitement as you.  Have you ever known someone who always focused on the negative?  Whenever God blessed you with something, this person always came around to question how you would be able to maintain it.  You get a new car, they wonder how are you going to pay the car note each month?   Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, do you realize Without Faith you cannot do anything in life?  The Bible declares in Hebrews 11:6 - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  No matter what you attempt to do in your life, if you do not have any faith in God it will not work.  It does not matter if others around you believe in it or you.  Do you have the faith to believe?  Everywhere you go in life there will always be someone there to question you.  The enemy will always send a person, a place or a thing to try altering your steps.  Be not deceived, everyone who smiles in your face today will not be there tomorrow.  Some are here on an assignment from hell.  There sole purpose is to attack and try to destroy you.

My brother, my sister, do you realize Without Faith you cannot do anything in life?  The Bible declares in Matthew 17:20 - And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Beloved, before you share your next God-given assignment with someone, make sure they have the faith to believe with you.  Do not share your personal goals with carnal people.  Do you realize, the enemy’s tactics have not changed.  According to John 10:10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

TRUST HIM!!!

Friday, August 25th, 2017

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.

Early Morning Worship!

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

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?

This morning, 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, August 23rd, 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 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!

Do Not Lose Heart!

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, 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.  Throughout this week, make time for yourself.  Take time to sit and hear what the Lord wants 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!

When You’re Left Alone …

Monday, August 21st, 2017

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 their side.  Isn’t 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?

This morning, 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 are 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 …

Friday, August 18th, 2017

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!)
