Are You Impacting The Lives Of Others …?

Monday, February 19th, 2018

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, as you take a brief overview of your life, I want to ask you a few questions that were birthed into my spirit.

  • Are you pleased with where you are?
  • Are you comfortable with the steps you have taken in life?
  • Are you striving for more materialism or are you content?
  • Has your life set a good example for others to follow?
  • Do you believe God is pleased with you and the way you are living?
  • Is your life hypocritical?
  • Can others see the love of God in you?

So often in our lives we never sit still long enough to see what areas of our lives need improvements.  I claim not to be perfect or flawless, but I have been assigned to come and tweak your thought process.  Beloved, …

Emergency Preparedness

Friday, February 16th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Many times in our lives there are occassions when unforeseen circumstances catch us off guard.  No matter how prepared we claim to be, there are times when life throws sucker punches our way.  Yes we have the nice paying jobs.  We have the expensive homes, beautiful wardrobe, perfect marriage, effective ministry, etc.  We appear to be on top of the mountain with no concerns in the world.  Just think about it, all that you ever wanted for yourself and your family is now in your possession.  What could possibly go wrong?  Hmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Living in Florida has taught me that no matter how many worldly possessions we enjoy, all it takes is one bad storm and everything could be taken away from you.  During the 2004 and 2005 Hurricane Seasons, the state of Florida experienced multiple hurricanes that affected our entire state.  No one ever imagined how awful things would be.  Just think about Hurricane Katrina and the affect it had on the Gulf Coast.  Homes destroyed, jobs ruined, lives taken away.  All of this as a result of one unforeseen circumstance.  My friend, have you taken the appropriate steps for Emergency Preparedness?  The Bible declares in Isaiah 54:17 - No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

My brother, my sister, I believe it is important for the entire body of Christ to be mindful of where they are in life and who made it possible.  We are where we are because of Christ.  We have what we have because of Christ.  No matter how many contacts we claim to have, no man is able to do for you what the Lord is able to do.  Be careful not to think you deserve to have the blessings you enjoy each day.  The same God who blessed you, is the same God who can take it away from you.  Beloved, take the appropriate steps for Emergency Preparedness.  The Bible declares in Isaiah 59:19 - So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Always Keep God First!

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever noticed how we spend much of our time trying to please people?  Most of our energy is wasted trying to make sure everyone accepts us.  We say what we think they want to hear.  We dress the way we think they want us to dress.  Whatever it takes to appease people, we are willing to do it.  Have you ever wondered how God feels when He sees us catering to people but neglecting him?  I am concerned about our ways.  Since when do we feel the need to appease man before pleasing God?  Since when do we feel obligated to pamper man’s ego?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do you realize no matter what you do to appease man, he will always find a reason to gripe and moan?  My grandmother always told me, “you can have ten friends.  You will successfully please nine of the ten, but one of the them will always find something to complain about.”  As children of God, we are commanded to love everyone, but we are not commanded to sell our souls for friendship.  My friend, Always Keep God First!  No matter how awful things appear today, make sure you never compromise your relationship with the Lord for a temporary moment of pleasure.  God is able to make any situation turn around.  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:33 - But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

My brother, my sister, who are you living your life for?  Who do you spend your energy attempting to please?  Who’s your God?  If you seriously evaluate your life you will notice who gets all your time.  Please understand, whomever or whatever you spend the most time with is your God or god!  The Bible declares in Psalms 118:8 - It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.  Beloved, Always Keep God First!  If you seek the hand of God you will never get to know Him intimately, but if you seek the face of God everything you need will come with it.  As you go forth today, make sure you keep the Lord first in your life.

This Is Not About You!

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  I often wonder where I would be in life if the Lord had not saved my life.  It is amazing to think how often we placed ourselves in harm’s way and the Lord continuously pulled us out.  Have you ever sat down long enough to see how faithful the Lord has been to you?  In spite of your imperfections, the Lord never gave up on you.  Just think about the night you were dancing in the club and the gunshots rang out.  It was the Lord who made a way of escape.  Think about the times you were smoking marijuana joints, sniffing cocaine, drinking alcohol, or living promiscuous.  It was the Lord who delivered you.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I am concerned that the people of God have lost sight of God’s goodness.  For some reason we live our lives as if God owes us.  We come and go as we please.  We only pray when we want something from Him.  We live any kind of way, say any thing we want and treat people like dirt, but we proclaim to be Christians.  My friend, This Is Not About You!  Who we are is because of the Lord.  Where we are is because of the Lord.  What we desire to be will come through the Lord.  Be not deceived, demons do not tremble when they hear your name.  The Bible declares in James 2:19 - Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

My brother, my sister, stop acting like the world revolves around you.  Humble yourself.  Do you realize God has someone, somewhere prepared to replace you?  Yes you are anointed, but this does not mean you are not irreplaceable.  Beloved, This Is Not About You!  As you go forth today, make sure you remember it is because of who God is that we are able to live, move and have our being.  The Bible declares in Philippians 2:9 - Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father

What Are You Doing?

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

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, allow me to ask you a few questions.

  • Are you operating in the power Christ ordained for you?
  • Are you living a life pleasing to the Lord?
  • Are you allowing something or someone to hinder you from walking in the fullness of God?
  • Are you running from the calling of God on your life?
  • Are you ignoring the voice of the Lord?
  • Are you doing the work of God for the glory of God?
  • Are you being held bound by people, places or things?
  • Are you allowing your light to shine so people may see Christ in you?
  • Are you infecting or affecting the people around you?
  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?

Beloved, we are in a time and season where the people of God need to begin walking in obedience to the assignments of God on our lives.  For some reason we have grown comfortable with complacency.  WILL THE PEOPLE OF GOD PLEASE STAND UP?  We need to stand up and win souls for the Kingdom of God.

Root of Bitterness

Monday, February 12th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself picking up the pieces from a broken heart?  After years of commitment to a particular sect of people, you now find yourself trying to recover.  What was it?  Did they betray your trust?  Did they spread lies on you?  Did they attempt to destroy your destiny or stand against your ministry?  Do you realize there are people who will do whatever it takes to prevent you from walking in the full manifestation of God’s power?  Since they stopped believing God for more, they want to prevent you from believing.  Child of God, please watch out for the snares of the enemy.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, have you ever experienced the Root of Bitterness?  Bitterness to the point that your entire behavior is altered when you are around certain people.  Bitterness to the point that the enemy keeps your mind bombarded and your heart cluttered.  Bitterness to the point that you begin to second guess all your friendships.  The Bible declares in Hebrews 12:14 - Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

My brother, my sister, do you realize you cannot make good decisions from a bitter heart?  As anointed as you claim to be, you cannot effectively minister to anyone with a bitter heart.  How can God use you to encourage the body of Christ, if you refuse to let go of past hurts and pains?  Beloved, give no place to the Root of Bitterness.  The Bible declares in Ephesians 4:31 - Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:  As your day unfolds, be honest with yourself and allow the Lord to work on your heart.  BE FREE IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

Don’t Fall For Fake Friends!

Friday, February 9th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Do you realize everyone you come in contact with each day is not a friend?  No matter how wonderful people make you feel about yourself, there are wolves in sheep clothing surrounding you.  They smile in your face but they’re plotting ways to take your place.  They try their best to assassinate your character, ruin your friendships, and destroy your destiny.  Do you realize some of your greatest opposition will come from close friends and family members?  As sad as it sounds, sometimes you find out who really believes in you when things are at their worse.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. Child of God, you must guard your heart from workers of iniquity.  If you are not careful you can/will become a victim of the devil’s traps.  As much as it may hurt you, please understand the things that make you cry can be used by God to make you stronger.  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.  My friend, Don’t Fall For Fake Friends!  You must never allow people into your inner circle unless you are sure God sent them into your life.  The investments God has birthed in you are to important for you to waste them on people who really do not care about you, your feelings, or your future.

My brother, my sister, have you ever been a victim of fake friends?  Have you ever shared your deepest secrets with someone and had them spread around town?  Have you ever had your dear friend call you with someone’s news/business?  If your answer is yes, then allow me to ask you a question.  If they will run to you with someone’s business, could it be possible that they are running to others with your business?  Beloved, Don’t Fall For Fake Friends!   The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:24 - A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.  I do not come to destroy friendships but I do come to warn the Believers!

When Anger Attempts to Befriend You!

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever had anger in your heart toward someone?  Whether it was a recent matter or something that occurred years ago, anger has taken residence in your heart.  This anger has not been temporary.  No matter how much you say it did not bother or affect you, it really did.  Have you ever found yourself having evil/negative thoughts toward a particular person?  If you could have five (5) free seconds, without punishment, you would express your anger toward this person.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know how it feels to be consumed by anger.  Anger that arrives because people second guess your calling, question your integrity, mock your ministry, and/or assassinate your anointing.  I know how it feels to be so overwhelmed until you are no longer thinking logically.  My friend, what do you do When Anger Attempts to Befriend You!  The Bible declares in Matthew 5:22 - But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.  How do you handle the moments in your life when everything and everyone appear to be working against you?

My brother, my sister, who offended you?  Who hurt you so bad that now you have anger in your heart?  Who took advantage of your love and friendship?  Do you realize God cannot use you as He desires when there is anger and bitterness infecting your spirit?  The enemy knows God has great works in store for you.  He knows God’s hand is upon your life.  Knowing this, he also knows the people who wounded you.  To prevent you from fully walking in the manifested blessings of God, the enemy continues to bombard your thoughts with past offenses.  Beloved, what do you do When Anger Attempts to Befriend You!  During these times, you need to submit yourself unto the Lord for internal cleansing.  The Bible declares in Proverbs 22:24 - Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:

You Must Have Discernment!

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself wondering if the people around you could be trusted?  For some reason, you are beginning to question their sincerity toward you.  They say the right things, at the right time but you still feel uncomfortable.  Have you ever wondered how people would respond to the way God continues to bless you?  When others were being blessed you celebrated with them.  Now that you are on the receiving end of God’s bountiful blessings, people’s opinions of you now matter.  Do you realize there are some people who will celebrate with you when they see God blessing you?  However, there are people who really do not like to see anyone, beside themselves, receive anything from the Lord.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  In life there are times when we confuse our enemies for friends.  We flock to people who act a certain way, dress a certain way, talk a certain way, make certain promises.  We think we have something in common with these individuals, but truthfully speaking we do not.  My friend, You Must Have Discernment!  Many Believers in the body of Christ have fallen into the devil’s trap because they could not discern between good and evil.  The flesh had them thinking one way, while their spirit was saying something different.  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.

My brother, my sister, what are you going through this morning?  What dilemma do you find yourself stuck between?  Are you in the midst of destruction?  Have you made the wrong decision about a person and now you find yourself here?  I do not come to ruin friendships or relationships.  I do not come to cancel business decisions.  My assignment is quite simple.  I come to cause the people of God to obey the voice of God.  You Must Have Discernment!  Do you realize, before we make decisions, the Holy Spirit is trying to give us Godly directions.  There are times when we hear Him and there are times when we ignore Him.  Beloved, it is time to listen or else you may end up back where you started.

Do Not Waste Your Blessings!

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

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?

This morning, 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!
