Ignite My Fire for New Beginnings this Month


5988623188_2669f7a0fd_z

Hi Everybody!

I know that it’s been a while since I’ve written on my Blog. I mean it’s been a while since I’ve written anything substantive, but I just want to let you know that I’m still alive and well :).

I want to declare and decree to you that this month of August is a month of New Beginnings.

August is the 8th month of the year and number 8 in biblical numerology is always associated with NEW BEGINNINGS! HALLELUJAH! :D

REJOICE!!!!! because this is also a month that I believe you will receive answered prayers. The important key factor about receiving something is your EXPECTATION level. What are you Expecting from God? Some people pray and give up along the way, but I want to encourage you in this season NOT TO GIVE UP. Keep pressing through for your breakthrough.

Another thing I want to point out is that blessings don’t just fall from the sky and onto your lap… My friends, you have to ACT, you have to MOVE by faith (be practical) to obtain the promises of God. Passivity does not bring bread and butter to the table. You have to GO OUT and make it happen. I’m not here to give you a fluffy feel-good about yourself kind of message. You will have to learn what it means to endure and press through and face trials and tribulations by remaining steadfast and vigilant. As the old sayings go, No Pain, No Gain, No Guts, No Glory…

Laziness is a vice to your advancement in the Kingdom of God. So Go out there and get with the program.

If you are not prepared to face battles in your mind right now….then you are destined to fail. OUCH Sherline, Where’s the encouragement woman!!!!!! (I’m sorry, did I just smack you with the truth?) tsk tsk tsk.

WAKE UP and FACE REALITY! You must aim to get stronger if you are weak right now. Train yourself, seek knowledge, pursue wisdom, for wisdom will carry you to greater heights.

Build emotional strength and wisdom to confront each battle with the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Gird yourself up with the full armor of God and choose to not lean on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge God and He will direct your path… (Proverbs 3:6) God will make your path straight when you are led by His Spirit, so seek God first in all that you do. You aren’t that bright all by yourself.

I’ve been learning on my journey that people who are short sighted only see where you are right now, but they don’t know where God is taking you when you are following Him. Do not be distracted by the naysayers and the ones who don’t have the same revelation of God that you have. Criticism is really a sign of insecurity to the one who gives criticism aimed to cut down and tear down at others so that they can feel better about themselves. You have no time to trifle with such people. Shake the criticism and the discouragement off and keep your head high and focus on the goal.

You must remain focused so that you obtain your promises from the Lord. Critics are those walking around for 40 years in a desert not seeing a way out… You will notice that nothing around them changes so you must be like Caleb and say “enough is enough! I’m walking towards the promised land!”  This is how you should go about your everyday business.

Choose your battles wisely because sometimes you’ll get caught up in fruitless arguments that also pose as a distraction. Let me tell you, You have no time for that in this season. Remain focused, be vigilant, don’t be passive and remain ACTIVE. Your pursuit of happiness is determined on how you conquer minor and major giants that you face in your daily life. Seek wisdom from the Lord if you lack it. The Lord will not withhold any Good thing from you.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

The Lord has been impressing upon my heart to tell the people I want them to focus on the Deuteronomy 28 Blessings. So what I’m going to do is paste this scripture here on this blog and you are going to pronounce these blessings over your household and your family in this month of August. Great things are coming to your address!

Deuteronomy 28: 1-14(NKJV)

Blessings on Obedience

28 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:

“Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

“Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

“The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Here is a song that is in my Spirit lately by William Murphy called Ignite My Fire. May this Song Bless your Spirit Today. God Bless you everybody! :D

Worship Sunday: Chosen by You


Hi Everybody!

This song really ministered to my spirit today. So far evangelism has been an interesting thing for me to be doing as of late. I give glory to God for every opportunity to share my faith with others. It’s been a miraculous journey where it’s coming to a point where I’ve had the opportunity to speak words of Knowledge to people  or God has allowed me to speak directly to the issue towards people I encounter by prophecying and they ask me “How did you know that???”… Two words “HOLY SPIRIT”.  It isn’t by might nor by power, it’s by God’s Spirit.

God gave us the ability to speak into the atmosphere and see things change not only in just our lives, but in the lives of others. The Church shouldn’t simply wait on a pastor to preach a word when it’s time to fulfill the great commission. Bench warming isn’t saving anybody…and you can’t expect the pastor to do everything for you. It’s amazing how people refuse to pray for themselves and for others, but are readily accepting to receive the prayers of others on their behalf. When we die…God isn’t going to ask you how many times you attended church, He’s going to ask you what you learned and what did you put into practice.  There is a difference in learning like a scholar and practicing what you’ve learned. Schools teach you the foundations to deal with everyday life…if you prefer being in school all your life, you will never put what you have learned into practice which makes you a useless student. Don’t be complacent and get with the program. Wake up and be the change that you wish to see.  Faith without works is dead… so God is challenging us to question where we are right now and is asking us…where are your works Church of Jesus Christ?

I refuse to be someone who has no impact. Are you satisfied with your Christianity?

You can’t have 50 churches big or small in the same vicinity and yet have no impact. Obviously, something is wrong if gun violence is prevalent and youth are getting in trouble with the law. We must be influencers of change…but if we do not change our bench-warming statuses soon, we will become mere buildings as reference points of mediocrity and no one will perceive us as the answer.

In order for the Church to be the answer, we have to do one thing….STEP OUT so that GOD STEPS IN. Can I get an AMEN????

Let us not be wrapped up in just retaining biblical information, and work on using it for transformation. Isn’t that what we are all meant to do in the long run?

Listen to this song by Kevin Downswell called Chosen. May it bless your spirit today. God Bless you everybody! :D

How Great Thou Art!!!!


salvation_is_foundHi Everybody!

Okay, I think I’m addicted to StikYard…This group is phenomenal in their worship. Talk about unrestricted praise…and with DRUMS!!!!! :D

There are times in life that you may face challenges and obstacles, but when  you think of How great God is…your challenge or issue today will become smaller in your eyes when you Magnify God in your praise. There are days people act like they have nothing to be thankful for, but each day is a gift and we should not take each day for granted because it could be our very last day.

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, would you still give God praise or would you simply wallow in self-pity?

What you do right now is just as important as what you did yesterday and what you will do tomorrow. Everything you do in life is important to God and that is why we must make room to Magnify the Lord in our daily walk. Look at where you are right now and ask yourself, did you give the Lord any thanks for what He has done in your day? If not, take a minute to give Him thanks right now, and I mean right NOW.

I know of someone who was adamant that she would not believe in God and thought Christians were “Bible Thumpers” and yet she liked me ironically and enjoyed my company. She was struck with cancer last year and during the time she was away I would call her every now and then to chat with her and check on her even though I was going through my own trial with being laid off without a job etc, and she knew I was a Christian, but she saw me as a “different type” of Christian and yet still refused to acknowledge God. Even though she was stubborn about it, I still prayed for her. Sometimes, when we talk about God, not everyone is willing to accept Him, but the point is, our job is to share about Him anyway.

She revealed a lot to me concerning her family issues and her bitterness and finished with Chemotherapy a few months ago last year. She was making plans to return back to work, however, today, I heard sad news that this same lady passed away. I pray that she found the Lord before her time was up because I knew where she stood concerning the message of salvation, and she did not seem interested to hear the Good news even though it was shared with her. Life was like a flickering flame for her and she did not know, that her time to choose was about to burn out.

We cannot walk around presumptuously thinking “I have all the time in the world”....Are you really sure of that?????

Sometimes we are too busy making other plans in our lives that we can’t seem to see that God is important and we need to make time for GOD in our lives.

Christians are lights to the world that can’t see God. The question I have for you today is how bright is your flame? Is yours dimming through unbelief, increased ignorance and indifference, or is your light shining brightly and burning ablaze with passion for God? It occurred to me that we must assess how bright our flames are as Christians in our daily walk…

If people can’t tell where you stand by just looking at you, then something is out of alignment. Take a look in the mirror my friend and tell me what you see? If Christ isn’t in you…what or who is?

How can we be lights to the world, if we are dim in our convictions towards our salvation and our belief in Christ Jesus? 

How will the world know of Him if you are too busy trying to hide Him from others? Or are you simply hiding from Christ yourself?

If you are ashamed of Jesus, Jesus says He too will be ashamed of us. For if Christ is in you, the shame you exhibit falls upon the Christ that is inside of you.  Do not be ashamed of Who you are in Christ, rather Fear Him and remember, the light in you guides all our disconnected brothers and sisters back to Jesus.

Mark 8:38

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
Luke 9:26

Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

Hebrews 2:10-12

10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.[a] 12 He says,

“I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters;
    in the assembly I will sing your praises.”[b]

Today, focus on what is important and seek to increase that flame of passion in you today. Magnify God in your life by what you say and do and seek to make Him a priority in your life. Make His name famous by living out what you believe out loud so that those that never knew Him can hear His name and call upon it so that they too can be saved. We are life lines to those walking in the wrong direction so seek to be the lighthouse that guides  people back to the Heart of the Father, Amen!

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Today, be blessed by this song called “How Great Thou Art” by StikYard. I guarantee that this presentation will bless you.

Still Believe


Hi Everybody!

I hope you are having a blessed weekend right now. So much has been happening to me these past few weeks that I really don’t know what to say but Praise God for everything.

This June, I’m focusing on evangelism for the month of June and want to see a move of God during this month.  It’s one thing to preach to the church…but ultimately the message needs to reach the unchurched and disconnected people back to God. How will they know God if we don’t go out?

I admit, this whole evangelism thing is outside my comfort zone, but lately I’ve been doing a lot of things outside my comfort zone and I’m saying to God, “Here I am, use me”. Saying this is easy, but doing this is a whole new thing entirely.

We cannot afford to be passive individuals as Christians. We are meant to be active in our Faith if we really want to hear God say “Well done faithful servant” at the end of our lives. So today I challenge the fence-sitters to get up and do something to reach someone with the message of hope. You have to live what you preach, and you have to aim at being genuine to others which includes a bit of vulnerability on your part  in that you have to expose your weaknesses to show others that you aren’t super-human and that you too are in need of the Savior.

Our Lord Jesus isn’t asking us to pretend our faith, He is asking us, “Do you believe?”

If you believe, then share what you believe, even in the face of ridicule, testify without shame. Remember, as you go out, you will learn as you go along. Don’t be discouraged by those that don’t listen, the whole point is to go out and cast your net. God will help you with what you catch, Amen!

Today I have a song here by Kim Walker and Jesus Culture called Still Believe to bless your spirit today. God Bless you Everybody!

Nothing but the Blood – Cool Worship Style


Hi Everybody!

I just saw this Video and thought, I’ve never seen this style of worship before by StikYard, but I know that God would love it. Check this video out!

May it bless your Spirit today. God bless you everybody! :D

Spirit Break Out


Hi Everybody!

It’s time to give God the Highest Praise!!!!!!

 Yesterday I had the honor of going to the Jesus Culture and Kim Walker concert and I can tell you it was phenomenal! I loved it and this song was sung at the concert that I felt would be a great worship song to bless your spirit today. It’s called Spirit Break Out. It’s time to give God high Glory and high Praise. I believe Revival is in our now season. I believe for it and I receive it for all those that have been praying for it. God is bringing His Kingdom to be made manifest in our lives this year through Restoration, Redemption & Revival!

John 4:23

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
John 16:13

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

Hear this song today and may it bless your Spirit today.  God bless y’all! :D

Atmosphere of Faith


Hi Everybody!

I’m in the mood to praise God in the Atmosphere of Faith. We need to cultivate a heart that is sensitive the voice of God and it only comes in and through an atmosphere of Faith that is created by your praise and worship.  Hear this song that I am posting here today and let it minister to your Spirit now. You may be having doubts about what God can do for you in your current situation, however, God is able to change your condition and take you to your real position. You just have to believe if you have the faith. Do not lose hope, guard your heart and take the position that you will recover all with God on your side.

Isaiah 25:1

Praise to God ] O Lord, You are my God. I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, For You have done wonderful things; Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
Psalm 71:22

Also with the lute I will praise You— And Your faithfulness, O my God! To You I will sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel.

1 Peter 1:6-8 (NKJV)

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,whom having not seen[a] you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,

 

May this song by Kevin Le Var & One Sound called Atmosphere of Faith bless your spirit today.  :D
