Here is a video to pay tribute to all the Proverbs 31 Mom’s out there!
All of her children call her BLESSED!
I think I’m on spoken word mode. This video I’m sharing really makes you look at where you stand in Christ. It’s one thing to know about God, but it’s another to be in relationship with Him. We can’t have an acquaintance-like relationship with Jesus by knowing Him in Name only and yet ignore Him for who He really is to us; He is our Lord and Savior and King of kings. May this Video help us to search deep within to know where we really stand. It’s amazing how much scripture Shawn Presley used in his spoken word, but the truth is needed to be heard in order to confront that which we try to shove under the carpet.
It’s amazing how much we try not to face ourselves when we say we are walking “in Christ” and yet live jaded lives thinking that God is blind to our acts of omission or commission to sin. In some cases, we Christians act engaged to Christ and yet are divorced from the Father’s love for us for the mere fact that we aren’t living for God wholly. It’s sad to have a part-time Christian faith when really God seeks a full-time marriage commitment of Faith. If we are the Bride of Christ as we so claim, we must no longer portray a mistress status with our King. Let’s dig deep and pray that the Church of Jesus Christ wakes up to see its real face and not live a compromised life swaying like a pendulum with the world’s way of living and start pursuing righteousness for what it is- living in right-standing with Christ. May we confess before God for not really being what we are meant to be in His Eyes which is to be Joint-Heirs with Christ Jesus. We can’t claim to be a powerful church, if we aren’t even plugged-in to the source which is in Christ our solid Rock, our redeemer and foundation of faith. May God help us be the Church that we ought to be and may we as Christians humble ourselves before the King of kings and repent for not being what we should be before Him. Let’s re-align ourselves back to the heart of the Father and seek to live in right-standing with Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, Amen!
Enjoy the Video and God bless you Everybody!
I love Passion for Christ Ministries (P4CM) for what it offers to the NOW Generation. So much talent with speakers that relate to the young generation and speak truth in a language that they can truly understand and relate to. This video that I am posting is a spoken word by Jefferson Bethke that really addressed the issue of how modern day Counterfeit Gods (aka Idolatry) affect our relationship with God in a truthful poetic way. I know it will minister to you today.
God Bless You Everybody!
Right now, I’m going through something that requires me to increase my Faith. I’ve recently been laid off and need God’s divine intervention in my situation. I’m not ashamed of my circumstances because I’ve decided to Trust God for what I need. Now, in such circumstances it is easy to forget Him and decide to forsake Him in times of trouble, but I know in whom I believe. I’ve resolved within myself that I can’t afford to be depressed although there was a few days this week where I knew it was creeping up on me. I’ve heard of others going through the same thing as me in this season and in some circumstances, they are a bit worse off in the situation as I am however, despite all that, God has been encouraging me to keep my faith alive and stay strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Sometimes, people stop ministering when bad things happen to them, however, I have decided to remain anchored in Christ. We’ve got to learn to trust God not only in the good times but in the bad times as well. The way I see it, this is a test of endurance. I know that when you feel pressure it is easy to crack mentally and it has happened to me before, however, I don’t want to go around in circles anymore with such a reaction and I have decided to remain steadfast and keep my faith alive because I’m believing for a divine turn-around in my situation. I’ve been speaking to my circumstances and calling forth things that be not as though they are because it’s easy to brood about what is happening rather than speak to your situation and prophesy what you want to see happen. I am believing that I am not in lack, that I am in a transition for multiplication and territory increase. That is what I have been praying for as of late.
God has been really testing me in this area of Faith. One thing I know is that when you are in lack, God is able to create a river through your desert situation.
18 “Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
20 The beast of the field will honor Me,
The jackals and the ostriches,
Because I give waters in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert,
To give drink to My people, My chosen.
I’m standing on the Word and believing that even when in lack, God is my river that is running through my desert. He is the way maker, the one who is able to create opportunities for His people that believe in Him. This song that I’m posting here today is from Marvin Winans Jr. called Believe. It is an up beat song, but it really has been ministering to my spirit as of late. I still believe that even in this Season of Renewal, we must yield to the power of the Holy Spirit. What I’ve come to believe is that when you have nothing, that is when you give of yourself to the Lord the most. Like that Widow that lived in the desert with her son that had only enough food to eat one more day and listened to Elijah the Prophet and gave him something to eat according to his request in her time of lack, God is able to increase the very little that you have if you obey His voice in this season. Her food was a seed that would reap a harvest of an abundance of food because she understood the principle of SEED – TIME – HARVEST. The little food she had was what she used to sow into her miracle by giving the very last of what she had to the Man of God, God saw her heart and blessed her with a divine increase in a time where such a thing was impossible or unlikely to occur. She probably didn’t even know that she was working a principle and a promise from God that says “I will bless those that bless you”(Genesis 12:3). When she blessed the Prophet, she herself received a blessing which was an abundance in a time of lack.
Our God is a God of the ridiculous and it is that Faith Level that I believe that God is testing me with even in my own season. God is able to increase the very little we have when we decide to cooperate with Him and the Holy Spirit. I believe that is the key thing here, OBEDIENCE!
8 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, “Please bring me a little water in a cup, that I may drink.” 11 And as she was going to get it, he called to her and said, “Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.”
12 So she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.”
13 And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. 14 For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’”
15 So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah.
I believe that it is when you have nothing that you give of yourself all the more to God and you will see increase when you are told to give the very little that you have by FAITH. It’s very easy to give when you aren’t in lack and most times, God knows how easy it is for people to give when their resources are high; but what happens when God asks you to give when your resources are running low? Do we choose to believe in Him and do what He asks of us? Sometimes, God asks me to do crazy things and recently He has asked me to sow a seed into someone who is facing the same thing as I am; however, I’m choosing to believe in His Word and bless others anyway even though I know that eventually my resources will run dry because I know that God is testing my Faith and seeking for me to increase it. Whatever I have now is seed for my harvest which also includes even my praise and worship.
Seed into your need and God will increase you in your time of Lack when you obey His voice.
I believe that He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and that He knows my needs according to His riches and glory. He is well able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ever ask or think, however, He wants to see if we believe enough for Him to do it. Though I feel challenged, I’m convinced that I serve a God who is well able to bring into completion my destiny and that He is walking with me through this season to be a testimony of “Look at what the Lord has Done!”
I appreciate any prayers or words of encouragement from my readers reading this post today. I know that my God is an awesome God and I have chosen be simply BELIEVE! For those that are going through some serious issues, my encouragement to you today is LEAN ON GOD and put your Trust in Him. We may lose a lot of things in life, but one thing we must NEVER lose is our FAITH IN GOD. Faith is what keeps you anchored in Christ and Faith is what births the miraculous, because the JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH (Hebrews 10:38), AMEN!
I hope you like this song everybody. God Bless You everybody!
Happy Sunday everybody!
I know I haven’t written much of anything for quite a while…but I will get back into the habit soon. I found this awesome video that will minister to you today called The Fifth Cup by Dan Stevers. It is a definite must watch. I feel stirred in my spirit as of late and feel like there is a need to emphasize the power of the blood of Christ.
Victory is our birth right when we decide that we are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Our language must reflect that birth right. Even in the face of adversity, the language that God only knows is the voice and the sound of Triumph spoken by His children who live by Faith and not by sight (Psalm 47:1; 2 Corinthians 5:7). The blood covers all sins, all mistakes and everything that is in the past because the Blood is God’s whiteout for our past transgressions. Once our mistakes and our past sins are blotted out, we only can look forward to a clean slate as our future (Acts 3:19). Today, focus on the future rather than dwelling on a past that is already erased by the Blood of Jesus Christ.
God is the author and finisher of your future, so believe in Him today rather than remain trapped by yesterday’s coulda, woulda, shoulda, but didn’t. The past is over, the time is NOW to move forward with God guiding you into your tomorrows. When a runner runs, they never look back because they are fixing their eyes on the prize which is at the finish line.
Set your eyes on the prize and finish the race. Consider this, that since Spring is the Season of Renewal, your best is yet to come, but you don’t have to necessarily wait for it, you can run towards it if you just believe.
God is looking for barrier breaking impossible faith. Do you want to reach that level? I know I do, however, it will take work, so work your faith out and see God move.
Philippians 3:12-14 (NKJV)
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Stay blessed everybody and enjoy the video!
Today is the 2nd day of Spring! I woke up this morning with an encouraging Word that spoke to my spirit a couple of days ago. In my life there have been extreme changes taking place that have made things rather murky and in a sense uncomfortable for me. I’m seeing people leave my life and new ones entering into it… there have been moments I have had mixed emotions about what I’m seeing, but the Lord encouraged me as I meditated on the meaning of Easter. He gave me this specific scripture:
18 “Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
20 The beast of the field will honor Me,
The jackals and the ostriches,
Because I give waters in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert,
To give drink to My people, My chosen.
I have a song that I still love and have posted before in a post I think I did a year ago and it’s from Dorinda Clarke Cole called Everything He Promised. May this Song bless your Spirit Everybody!
It’s already the Easter/Passover season and I found this really touching video as an inspiration for your Sunday. I pray that it blesses you as it did me. I will get to writing my posts soon, I just haven’t had a lot of time lately, so while you wait to read my stuff, stay blessed this season as we remember our Lord and Savior for this Season of Easter.
God Bless you Everybody!
It has been a while since I last posted so today’s post is more a thought piece.
For the past few weeks I’ve been reflecting on what it means to walk into destiny and the Lord pointed out to me that the only way to reach our destinies in life is by learning to understand your purpose in life.
Do you know what your purpose is in life?
How does one understand their purpose?
Do you know that we are all a solution to a question that hasn’t been answered?
We tend to figure out who we are by recognizing what makes us tick, what inspires us, what moves us, what makes us want to act on something and we tend to find the answers to these questions by looking out for things that we want to change. The desire to change something and make something better is a clue as to where our destiny lies.
Sometimes as we grow up we have an idea of what we want to be, but the full picture isn’t always clear until God reveals to us what our true purpose is in this life. I sometimes look within myself and wonder, what am I here for? Each day I see areas that I am a solution to different problems.
I’m convinced that we were all created to heal this broken world. In fact, we are all ordained and set apart (sanctified) to heal this broken world. We may all operate at different capacities, however, we were all created to give glory to God through our talents and abilities. Although we are all born with various talents and abilities, not everybody is walking in their destinies because they aren’t walking in the right direction. When someone isn’t walking in the right direction, they walk away from what God intended them to be because they are lost. Unfortunately, there are a lot of lost people in this world and that is why it is so important to seek to do God’s will as Christians. Understanding God’s will helps us to understand our purpose in life which leads us to walk towards what we were destined to be; a solution to a broken world that doesn’t know Jesus Christ is the answer regarding their identity. The one thing we must do is entrust our destinies in the Lord’s Hands. We all have dreams, but only God can help us make these dreams a reality. The focus here is to trust God with all our heart, with all our mind and with all our soul. We cannot move forward without believing in the Author and Finisher of our destiny (Hebrews 12:2). When we understand Jesus, we can then learn to understand ourselves and our purpose. So we must seek to understand our purpose in order to walk with a purpose.
Those who understand their purpose have the ability to steer others who are lost to find their purpose. When you have a clear vision of who you are in Christ, you are able to draw others towards Him by the very nature of God’s presence that resides in you to be a fisher of all men and women (Matthew 4:19). The only way to understand your purpose is to learn to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF because God already Believes in YOU. In the same way, we must put our Trust in God for our lives because He is the one that guides us to our purpose. So Today, focus on leaning on God to Understand your Purpose, because purpose is tied to you believing in God for your destiny so that you can walk in it.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
I have a song here to bless your spirit today by VaShawn Mitchell feat. Kierra Sheard called I Will. May it bless you abundantly everybody!
The Power of Belief is more powerful than speech because everything created began with a thought before it was spoken into motion.
Did you know that you were first thought of before you were created?
We were all in the mind of God before He even spoke the world into motion. He knew how we would look like before we were created. We were part of God’s imagination before we became His manifested creation. We can never know the mind of an artist until they translate their thoughts and ideas into something tangible, into something we can see and experience just like how you can never know the mind of a writer until they put their thoughts into writing so that you can read to understand their thoughts and ideas that are translated into words written on paper.
The Lord has been showing me how incredible we as people really are. In the Word we are described as “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” (Psalm 139:14) and even though this is true, as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, we still struggle with an inferiority complex. We still don’t know who we are in Christ Jesus because we simply do not believe in God’s Word and what He says about us.
God Thinks, therefore I AM a Child of God created in His Image and Likeness.
How many of us really believe that?
Did you know that Miracles are a substance created from Hope that is rooted in Faith that comes from the thinker who decides to simply BELIEVE?
When you believe something is…it becomes your reality.
God has been speaking to me about guarding your mind as you build up your Faith. What you believe is what you become. It is important to guard your mind because even though there is power in spoken words, those spoken words first come from the heart of the thinker who believes in what they are saying.
21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
What you receive from the Lord is attached to your level of Faith and Belief.
Thomas missed his chance to receive the Holy Spirit in this way just because he was stubborn in his DOUBT.
This event spoke volumes to me because it tells me that we need to have an already built-in expectation of Faith in order to receive a miracle. If you prepare your heart and choose to believe, you will see what you believe before it even happens. Those who doubt do not prepare to receive and therefore, it is no suprise that when a miracle does occur even in their midst, they that doubted often are the ones who miss out on their blessings.
So How Do We Go About Preparing for a Miracle?
“How does one prepare for a storm?”
Sometimes weather forcasters tell us to prepare for hurricanes and other types of weather. You’ll have some people the will hear the report and believe in the report and will act on what they believe by preparing to stock up on food, boarding up and reinforcing their houses and whatever property they have to ensure that they are secure before the storm hits.
What was demonstrated here? FAITH IN ACTION.
The people first hear the report, believe in the report and act on it by preparing for what they believed in. Wisdom is also demonstrated by those that don’t yield to doubt and hold on to Faith. Such people don’t need to see the storm in order to know that they need to prepare for it before it hits.
At the same time, we will have people that will hear the same report and will choose not to respond to it simply because they do not believe in the report of the weather forecasters. They will choose not to prepare for it because in their mind they think the storm is highly unlikely to hit them and even if it were to hit, they will be convinced that it wouldn’t necessarily affect them or create real damage. Such people and their DOUBT causes them to miss out on the opportunity to prepare for the storm. By the time the storm hits, it is already too late to prepare to shield yourself for the onslaught that the winds bring as damage ensues from the rage of the storm.
This analogy is the same for miracles.
Just because you don’t see the storm doesn’t mean it won’t hit. A gentle wind can turn into a furious toronado filled with power given the amount of time and pressure required to gather momentum. If you are warned before hand to prepare for a storm, you will be prepared to handle what it brings if you respond to the report. However, for those who ignore such reports because of their heavy-seated doubts, they end up potentially being robbed of their chance to preserve their belongings as everything is taken away by the storm.
In the same way, those that believe in a miracle are the ones who prepare to receive one when they choose to BELIEVE IN THE REPORT OF THE LORD. If you doubt God, you won’t receive your miracle because you failed to prepare your heart to build up your faith so that you can believe in what He has for you.
Belief in God is required in order to receive your miracle. It’s as simple as that.
Seeing is not believing, believing is seeing.
You have to prepare your heart so that it is unwavering in order to receive a miracle. Undaunted faith releases that which you hoped to receive. If you allow room for doubt, you will miss your blessings. I sense that the Lord wants people to prepare their hearts to believe so that we can receive that which we hoped for as the rain of miracles will rain down in due season. If you don’t believe, you won’t receive and you will miss opportunities just because you didn’t prepare your heart and build your Faith. The time is NOW to prepare your heart and build your faith because the latter rain is going to be greater than the former.
So People of God…. Pursue to Build up your Faith in order to see the tangible manifestation of your miracles that God has waiting for you. Confess your doubts and ask God to give you more Faith. The more faith you have, the greater the miracle that will be released; however, God is searching for mustard seed Faith in the Body of Christ because there is such a stronghold of unbelief that is locking up people’s miracles. Be encouraged and seek God to increase your Faith, today! God bless you everybody!
Here’s a song by Darwin Hobbs called He’s Able. May it minister to your Heart today and clear any room of unbelief, Amen!
Wow…what a snow storm we had yesterday! I don’t know how people fared in the U.S. but I hope everybody kept safe and indoors. Today, there is this awesome song I just want to share with you by Bishop Paul S. Morton’s cd called Flow to You. It is such an intimate song that really touched my heart and I just had to share it here as a weekend worship song. May this song bless your spirit this week as you think upon the goodness of God in your life. Let our worship rise and flow to our God. Lift your worship up to Him and praise His Holy Name. Glory be to God Everybody!
I haven’t been able to type up much for the past few days because there’s been sooo much on my plate, but I just wanted to drop by and bless y’all with a powerful song by Tasha Cobbs called Break Every Chains. For the most part, I am blessed with the fact that God is so powerful, He can break every chain that keeps us captive in the Name of Jesus.
Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
All we’ve got to do is ask in Jesus Name and these chains that keep us from progressing in life can be broken if we move by faith. We have to claim our freedom by faith.
Faith isn’t a passive force, it’s an active force that moves impossibilities to become possible.
This means that we all need to cooperate with the Holy Spirit. Faith isn’t a mere “feeling”, it’s a decision one makes that is translated into action. The truth is, we decide if we want to get healed or not. Like no one can force you to see the doctor…the Holy Spirit won’t force you to seek your healing or deliverance that is available to you today. YOU decide if you will have faith or not. Jesus can give you that which you need. If you need faith…ask for it. Remember….you don’t have to be the “Until now you haven’t asked nothing in My Name” -type person…. you should decide to be the asker.
Those that Ask from the Lord, often are the ones who end up receiving from the Lord. Faith is a decision; it’s a choice that produces a result. Faithlessness doesn’t require anything…except for you to decide not to decide to have faith at all.
The famous saying that goes… “All evil needs to triumph is for good men(and women) to do nothing”. In the same way, your captivity is determined by you deciding to do NOTHING. Faith takes you places and breaks the barriers that keep you from moving forward. Faithlessness keeps you in bondage with all your problems. Captivity can be a choice if you decide to accept that as your status quo. I say…. NOT MY PORTION!
What will you decide is your Portion today? Seek to increase your level of Faith and you will see amazing things happen.
God is waiting for FAITH SEEKERS!
God bless you everybody!
Happy Sunday! I just found this cool video to inspire and encourage your spirit. It’s Time for the Church of Jesus Christ to rise is it’s main message. It’s a spoken word type of poetry and it just is amazing. I’m sure you’ll be blessed by it as it also blessed me.
God Bless You everybody and enjoy!
I just figured that I’d post a video here today that will make us think deeply and reflect on ourselves as we practice daily repentance through daily confession before our God in order to be free from the negative emotions and things that keep us in a place of self-condemnation and/or bondage from negative thinking about ourselves and others. There is no condemnation in Christ so be honest with yourself and confess to God your weaknesses and He will make you Free.
[ Free from Indwelling Sin ] There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
When you become really honest with yourself about the negative thoughts you harbor if in bitterness, jealousy, anger etc., you can and will receive inner healing and deliverance from these negative emotions for not just your body and your mind, but for your soul as well.
[ Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8 NKJV
It is so important to keep that spirit of repentance in our heart and to practice it daily in order to avoid developing a seared conscience. Humble yourself and always seek God to purify your heart because that really shows that you need Him. When you Draw near to Him, He too will draw near to you.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
May this video bless you today everybody!
Wooohoooooooo it’s the final day of the Fast for me! The whole journey has been rather surreal for me. I remember going to church last night because we were praying throughout the 21 Day Daniel Fast so it was holding a prayer service, and as people were praying for their needs, I literally saw a cloud of smoke hovering the entire congregation and it filled the entire room and I knew it was the presence of God because this wasn’t the first time I’d seen this happen.
All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door.
People of God, the presence of God is tangible from my experience. It was a fearful sight for me, because that is when you realize that you’ve entered into a place that is considered the Holy of Holies. I remember feeling like I was just trembling throughout the prayer session and what I can say is that when you enter into that Holy place, you can’t joke around in that presence. I believe that the same God who walked with the Isralites like a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night is able to make His presence known to those who reverentially fear Him. As I meditate today, I feel in my spirit that the Lord wants people to know that the Lord will lead you in the night time and in the day time with knowledge, instruction, direction from the Light that comes from His Word. All you have to do is watch Him lead and you follow as you walk by faith and not by sight.
For we walk by faith, not by sight.And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.
I’m expecting a new move of God this year. What took years to be established will take days if not hours to be fulfilled. There is indeed a quickening in the spirit so don’t give up on what you are praying for is my encouragement today. God will show you the road in which you should travel if you just put your trust in Him today.
Moreover You led them by day with a cloudy pillar, And by night with a pillar of fire, To give them light on the road Which they should travel.Yet in Your manifold mercies You did not forsake them in the wilderness. The pillar of the cloud did not depart from them by day, To lead them on the road; Nor the pillar of fire by night, To show them light, And the way they should go.
I feel like celebrating the end of this fast with a song by J.Moss (feat. James Fortune) called You Did. May this Song bless your spirit today Everybody!
I feel like praising the Lord today. I only have two days until I’m done the 21 Day Daniel Fast and honestly, I feel like my discernment is getting sharper as I sit and meditate in God’s Word day after day and I just want to give God the praise for all the things I experienced through this Fast. I feel like I need to post a song to encourage some people out there who feel weary about whether God is going to answer their prayers or not this year. If you are seeking restoration, healing and deliverance for your family, God is more than able to grant what you ask in His Name according to His will and purpose for your life which is the Jeremiah 29:11 promise.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
The message that’s in my spirit right now is that “If God did it once, He can do it again”. Do not forget the past miracles He has given you in your life. When you remember all that He has done for you, you will look forward to the greater things that are yet to come. Greater miracles than the former are yet to come. The greatest miracle in your life though, is when you decided to give your life back to the Lord. Salvation is the greatest miracle; however, your life of miracles don’t end there.There will be a path of miracles that will continue to occur in your life as you continue to follow God when you allow Him to direct your path towards HIM and the destiny that He has for you in this Life leading you to your promise and your destiny.
Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you and let your footsteps be ordered of the Lord as He takes you by the hand and leads you in the direction that you must follow in order to receive your miracles. Don’t give up on whatever you are praying and believing for and keep pressing through for your breakthroughs. A blessing delayed is not necessarily denied, it’s just waiting for you to reach its destination when you put your Trust in God and allow Him to lead you to your blessing.
If God did it before, Please believe He can Do it Again.
let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.Psalm 73:28But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, That I may declare all Your works.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct[a] your paths.
I have a Song here by Deon Kipping called Heal Again. May this song bless your spirit Everybody! Be Encouraged and God Bless You!
I know I know, It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here, LOL .
The 21 Day Daniel Fast this year for me has been rather different from the one I had last year. I’d say that it is just as intense as last year and so many new things are happening around me that I can’t get into it just yet. All I can say is that it’s been an uphill battle in this fast to keep my wits about me without getting weary lol .
For the past few days, the Lord has been talking to me about the Spirit of Division. I thought to myself “What about it Lord?”, and that’s when He started to reveal things to me to keep note of for this year.
The Spirit of Division is the kind of spirit that prevents UNITY. It is the type of spirit that can come in various forms, but stems from the root demon spirit called PRIDE. It causes disunity and is known to be a Thief of time, effort, emotions and steals people’s Provision for God’s VISION for our lives (John 10:10). God wants a UNIFIED Church. If gossip mongers create strife, there will be divisions amongst the fold which means that the CHURCH will crumble if there is a lack of agreement and unity amongst its members (Amos 3:3 - Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?). If Division can be created to cause disagreements and arguments amongst the members of the Church, then how can the body of Christ walk in the same direction if the members do not agree upon any one thing? This is what will happen if DISUNITY is achieved which is exactly what the Devil wants in order to weaken the power of the UNIFIED CHURCH. I feel like the spirit of the Lord has been wanting me to say for quite sometime ”Church of Jesus Christ, Guard your heart from this DIVISIVE Spirit!”
[ Avoid Divisive Persons ] Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
The Lord also revealed to me during my meditations that a Spirit of Division is also a characteristic of a DOUBLE-MINDED Man who is unstable in all their ways (James 1:8). The only way to keep yourself from becoming double-minded is by learning to remain humble in all that you do for God and for others by understanding the true meaning of SUBMISSION.
Humility Cures Worldliness
7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
DRAW NEAR TO GOD and RESIST THE DEVIL. It is so important to not allow oneself to be embittered with envy (jealousy),or temptations that lead one to lust, or acts of depravity, anger & hatred which are all sinful behaviours that contaminate a persons soul. Such behaviours stray from the path of righteousness and cause one to act with a divisive spirit that is unable to work with others as a team. This is what happens when one yields to a Spirit of Division. Such persons, cause strife, they cause arguments, they enjoy the breaking up of peoples who once walked in agreement and they are the ones that prevent UNITY by creating DISUNITY.
[ Sectarianism Is Sin ] Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
[ Avoid Divisive Persons ] Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus[b] Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.
Maintain Your Life with God
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
We are forwarned that those who operate with a Spirit of Division are sensual persons who DO NOT have the HOLY Spirit in them (Jude 1:19). Therefore, we must do what the Bible says in (Jude 1:20-21) and keep praying in the Holy Spirit and in the LOVE of God always pursuing the mercy of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In essence, the point is to remain humble and practice humility as a way of life. Humility requires us to submit to the will of God in our lives and to heed the Godly counsel of our elders and not to be filled with self-seeking behaviours that seek to satisfy the desires of our flesh. When we yield to this wisdom, we can properly guard ourselves from becoming obstinate, callous, rude, calculative, and deceptive, not only deceiving others but ourselves from the Truth which is in GOD’s Word. The spirit of Division operates in the same way as one who practices False Humility if you reference back to the post I wrote last year regarding The Importance of Detecting False Humility.
Guard your heart, your mind, your spirit and your soul from adopting this type of spirit. It will affect your Character and everything you do. Remain Humble and always abide in the Truth. It is always better to esteem others above yourself and it is even better to give to others rather than to receive from others.
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Such a person operating under the spirit of Division will always seek to esteem themselves higher than others and will always prefer to receive accolades, gifts, prizes (including bribes), and high recognition from others to puff up their PRIDE (this definitely reminds me of SAUL who was jealous of David in 1 Samuel 18:6-8). My dear brothers and sisters, we must avoid becoming such a person. Remain humble and learn what it means to SUBMIT TO GOD and also to submit to Godly counselors who watch out for your soul. Refrain from becoming bitter about any issue that arises in your life, for bitterness will lead you to sin in this way if you do not learn to manage your emotions well, so check yourself before you wreck yourself, and repent to God if you have harboured such traits that are described here regarding the spirit of Division and seek to humble yourself before God to purify your heart and to make it more like Jesus Christ’s heart which is filled with Love, Peace, Righteousness and Joy.
I have two songs here to minister to your spirit today both my J.Moss one called Holy is Your Word and the other called Caught up in Love. May these Songs Bless your Spirit everybody!
In this fast, I’ve been basking myself in uplifting praise songs. It really prepares your spirit to worship and to fight as you pray seeking God for direction and instructions. Worship is a lifestyle and in this Daniel fast, it is the most powerful tool to have close by when you encounter attacks coming out of nowhere. Fix your heart, mind, body and soul towards Jesus. He can protect you from confusion, depression, pressure, anger, and any type of negative thoughts that start to attack your mind. Spiritual Warfare is not a joke. For those that are participating in the 21 Day Daniel Fast, it is imperative that you focus your mind to think positive and wholesome thoughts. Guard your mind and hold it captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus.
2 Corinthians 10:5
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
Bless your soul with worship when you are feeling low…it’s a mighty weapon of warfare that should not be underestimated especially at this time. Fill your spirit with WORSHIP and it will be so natural by the time you come into a Sunday service to lift your hands and give the Lord PRAISE. Some people can be soooo down that they are unable to lift their hands because something is missing in their lives. It’s worship….don’t wait until Sunday pops by to get your worship on. You’ve got to practice it everyday until it becomes natural to you. Many have this amazing weapon of warfare, but can’t get delivered simply because they aren’t using this weapon of warfare. It’s time for God’s people to rise up and Give the Lord Praise and Worship so that they can see Him move mightily in their lives.
If we want to sing songs of DELIVERANCE….we have to fill our spirits with WORSHIP everyday! If you don’t, then it will be as if you are going into battle without weapons hoping that you will win. God ensures victory when we give Him Praise and especially when we Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. So today, fill your spirit with Worship and fix your attitude about Worship. The strategy of the enemy is always to steal the Lord’s worship so what better way than to distract us from using this powerful weapon of warfare by robbing our attention and focus from God by making us focus on our problems rather than seeking God and seeing God as the answer to our problems. Fill your spirit with songs of Deliverance and surely God will Deliver you out of your trial.
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

The Original Song
It’s been a busy New Year, more busier than I anticipated, but we are back in the mode of the 21 Day Daniel Fast. My Fast started on the 2nd of January and so far I have decided that I won’t chronicle my meditations daily as I did last year. I found that last year the fast was so intense that I found it difficult to sleep because I was in such a spiritually heightened state that I developed insomnia which I have not been able to get over since now.
These days, I feel the need to just bask in solitude and will type up whenever I have the time my thoughts during the fast. So far there have been many strange things that I have been noticing as of late, but despite all that I have witnessed and experienced and still continue to witness, I can attest to the fact that God’s grace during the fast is amazing. I find that the beginning of the Fast is always the most difficult for many including myself to start; however, as time goes by it gets a little bit easier once you reach your determination level to stay the course.
I find that just by being silent and really just training my spirit to hear what the Father has to say has been a humbling experience. Although I see visions of things happening and things yet to come, there is that sense of feeling overwhelmed by the information that I’m receiving that has caused me to feel like I just need to be silent for this fast. It’s that waiting period when you are awaiting instructions and at the same time taking the time to observe that which ought to change within (yourself) in order to change throughout. I probably am not making any sense right now to others; however, what I will say is that as I sit here contemplating about God’s grace in my life, I can testify that there are times when I have taken it for granted. I think to some extent we all do. Life is seemingly so transient, but when you find the path that leads to eternity, your life never really stays the same again unless you decide to forsake the path.
From what I can see, this year is going to be dynamic and at the same time a trying year as well. I get the sense that there will be difficult tests that each person will have to go through in order to see a new side of God in their lives. Developing spiritual strength starts from developing emotional strength. The one word that hit me at the beginning of this fast that has been disturbing me for quite some time is the word “Treachery”. I’m not exactly sure why this has been on my mind as of late, but from what I understand, all I can think of is that as I have been talking about the David Generation rising this year, it is important to know how one should engage the enemy especially enemies that have a Saul-like spirit. There was a point where David had an opportunity to kill Saul because of his treacherous ways, but David did not kill him even though he may have been justified in doing so. It is so important to NOT create any room for hatred to enter into ones heart. It has a way of contaminating your spirit. This is why we need to make room for God’s grace in our lives. The Grace of God helps us to overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21).
Read about how “David Spares Saul” in 1 Samuel 24-28
This is why it is important to develop emotional strength. I think for myself…this will be the area that I will be focusing on this year since I admit that I can be emotionally immature when dealing with certain kinds of people. I know that when I lived with my grandparents, I witnessed various forms of treachery that it developed in me a sense of taking justice into my own hands because I couldn’t stand to witness injustice. Thank God I never did because God doesn’t want us to do such things. He wants us to allow Him to take care of our enemies His Way, if only we just learn to TRUST HIM. This means….vengeance belongs to God and we have to step aside and let Him do His thing. That’s extreme humility and that’s what we all should develop if we want to be successful in Spiritual Warfare. We usually say things like “the Battle is not ours, it is the Lords” and yet some people take the battle into their own hands and suffer incredible losses because they refused to wait on God to take over and ensure victory. Defeat can be avoided when we yield to the power of the Holy Spirit, so for this year…people, develop emotional strength for the battles that you will face. I can sense that the war is heightening in intensity this year, so I urge all who are participating in the Fast to focus on building fortified walls of HUMILITY. God is your strength and shield, Amen!
Another thing that I want to say is that it’s one thing to be anointed, but it’s another to have the right mindset to handle the weight of it. Even so, God’s Grace is sufficient to meet the need as long as we remain humble. Humility is completely key this year. Also, from my own meditations, the one thing we must understand is that might and power won’t take us to the destination of our destinies. We can only reach our destinies through the power of the Holy Spirit. Not everyone has trained themselves to rely on the Spirit because they are too used to having faith built by their own hands, but if you want something to have “staying power”, you need to let the Holy Spirit build things His way so that whatever you try to build will not be shaken. Christ is the solid rock and He should be our foundation. So for those participating in the Daniel Fast, recognize that this Fast trains you to strengthen your Humility in order to be successful in your Spiritual Warfare. Humility takes you places…pride halts progress.
The Daniel Fast is also a form of Spiritual Warfare to receive answers and instructions from God so continue to meditate on God’s Word and keep it in your Heart when you encounter your battles this year.

Merry Christmas Eve Everybody!
I realize that although this is a time of family and fellowship for many of us celebrating the season of Jesus Christ’s birth and life, there are people out there that are going through some hard times in this season of celebration. So this song that I’m posting by Israel & New Breed (feat. James Fortune and Jason Nelson) called It’s Not Over is to encourage the lonely, the hurting and the ones who need a song to uplift their spirit. God is with you even when you think He isn’t in your present situation. God is in your situation. God we help you come through whatever trial you are going through because God loves you. He will send you the answers you are looking for even when you think you can’t find them. Many are going through “WHY????” seasons…but God can turn around that “Why?” into a “Because” and be the answer you need while you are asking questions. Though we see dimly the light shines through the darkness and that Light that you seek whether you realize it or not is through our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST. God Bless you everybody and may this song minister to the broken-hearted during this season. God has not forgotten you.
