Search for You – We need your Rain


Numbers23.19

Hi Everybody!

Happy Sunday! I just want to share this song that’s in my spirit right now by Micah Stampley called Search for You. 

I’ve been commanding my mornings lately on a consistent basis and let me tell you, each day something new keeps happening in my life. God has shown me that if we want change in our lives we must pursue God differently. If the normal way of seeking Him is at an average level, then the results we expect to receive will be at an average level. But, when you start to pursue God and go the EXTRA MILE, and I mean the EXTRA MILE for God, you’ll receive EXTRA just because of how you pursued Him. So my encouragement for you today is to seek God differently if the natural course of doing it isn’t yielding major results in your life. Go the Extra mile in your pursuit of God and expect supernatural things to occur during your journey. This can’t happen if you don’t do your part and be active – KEY WORD IS ACT-IVE in your pursuit of God.

I declare that in this season of Signs and Wonders that this year is indeed the acceptable year of the Lord as is says in Isaiah 61 (NKJV):

The Good News of Salvation

61 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

And they shall rebuild the old ruins,
They shall raise up the former desolations,
And they shall repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.
Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks,
And the sons of the foreigner
Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
But you shall be named the priests of the Lord,
They shall call you the servants of our God.
You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles,
And in their glory you shall boast.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor,
And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double;
Everlasting joy shall be theirs.

“For I, the Lord, love justice;
I hate robbery for burnt offering;
I will direct their work in truth,
And will make with them an everlasting covenant.
Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles,
And their offspring among the people.
All who see them shall acknowledge them,
That they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”

10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Meditate on this Word for the Month of September and consider that double blessings will come to you when you double your efforts to pursue God. Faith without action is dead, so MOVE.

Hear this song and allow it to minister to your spirit today. God bless you everybody. :)

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.

He Did it for You


Hi Everybody!

I know easter has already passed, but I felt that as I saw this video today, we must remember that Christ redeemed us at a price. He did all that He was predestined to do to bring us back to the Father. He laid down His life for you…No simple man can do what Christ did for all of humanity. All Jesus asks of us today is to now walk BLAMELESSLY.

Jesus did not lay down His life for all of us and then  resurrect Himself in vain. His plan was to reunite us back to the Father and to reconcile and  restore our authority as joint-heirs of the King of kings. Through Jesus’ blood we have access granted back into the Kingdom of Heaven. Let us rejoice and remember that He did it all for you.

Today, think about what the cross means to you. Jesus was blameless and is blameless, now we too must walk blamelessly before the Father and seek to do right. May this video bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody!

Deuteronomy 18:13 

You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.

2 Samuel 22:26

“With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;
Job 1:8

Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”
Psalm 37:37

Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace.
Proverbs 2:21

For the upright will dwell in the land, And the blameless will remain in it;
Proverbs 28:18

Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved, But he who is perverse in his ways will suddenly fall.
Philippians 2:15

that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
2 Peter 3:14

Be Steadfast ] Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;

What Does a Real Man Look Like?


Hey Everybody!

So I saw this message done by Lecrae about this topic and felt that it was such an important message that I’m going to post it here on my blog for all y’all to watch. He makes so many Key points on how the world defines men and how God defines what a “real” man looks like. This message isn’t just for men, but it’s for women to understand what a “real” man looks like.

Be Blessed today with this message by Lecrae, I know you’ll love it! :D

The Christmas Gospel


Hi Everybody!

I know it’s been a busy month for everybody trying to wrap up things before the Christmas holidays, but let me just state that Jesus is the Reason for the Season and the whole point is no matter how inaccurate historians maybe about Dec 25th being Jesus’ birthday (which most of us know that it is not), the whole point is, it is a time of celebration concerning the Fact that Christ came to Save us all from the penalty of sin which is death, through what He did at Calvary by dying on the Cross and Resurrecting from the dead three days later in fulfillment of the scriptures.

Our Lord Jesus came down from Heaven to be born as a man to teach us all about God’s Kingdom, bear our sins on the cross and defeat the power of death so that we could all be redeemed and be reborn to be reunited with Him again by acknowledging that He is indeed our Savior. Such compassion shown by our God is worthy of all our praise and when you begin to realize, Jesus’ birth was not done in vain, the master plan was to restore all of us back into the fullness of our positions as joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Through this, we have so much to be thankful for and so much to give to God and to others by our way of worship back to the Father for all that He has done for us.

Jesus came down to give us the gift of hope through salvation so that in return, we would do the same by blessing those around us with the same gift of hope to return back to the heart and the love of the Father.

Extend your love to others so that the light of Christ love shining through you can reach others who live in darkness.

Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 

I want to bless all my blogger friends and all those that read this blog a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Enjoy this video by Dan Stevers and the song I love called “The Drummer Boy” performed by Pentatonix  and God Bless You Everybody!

 

 

From Satanist to Christian – The Power of the Loving Church


Hi Everybody,

I just had to share this testimony of John who was a Satanic Priest who practiced Santeria and the power of how the Loving Church helped him to Choose Jesus Christ as Lord.  The Power of the Loving Church can transform lives.

This Testimony is so moving and I feel that as Christians, we cannot underestimate the power of Love and the Prayers of the righteous that avail much. Love delivers hope where there was hoplessness. Love reveals the truth that sets people free. Jesus loves His Church and He loves ALL people. He loves you even if you do not believe in Him. Jesus believes in you. Watch this video and consider that if you are wavering in your faith, or if you don’t have a reason to believe in Jesus, know that Jesus came to Save you and me. He loves you so much that He does not want you to live without knowing the True love of God for His Children. You are loved by God and Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He will leave his flock in the pasture just to save that one that is lost or is not part of it, and bring that one back with the rest of the sheep. He will watch out for all of His people. Jesus loves you, believe that, receive that and accept Jesus into your life and watch Him move and do amazing things for you as you embark the journey of Faith in His Holy Name.

People of God, Christians, we haven’t got the time to judge others who don’t know Jesus. We are the light in the non-believers darkness, we are the Christ-like representatives that need to show them the heart of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through our actions. Demonstrate the true heart of the Good shepherd today. Show other people the love of God with your Actions. It’s not enough to talk about the love of God, you have to be the personified demonstration of that Love. Love through Action speaks greater volumes to a non-believer than words, because Love in Action is what fuels faith. Let us be the Love that the world who does not know God can see so that when they see it in action, they will believe in God and receive Jesus into their Heart and become saved. Think about this today and live love out loud.

God Bless you everybody!

 

John 10:1-21

New King James Version (NKJV)

Jesus the True Shepherd

10 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.

Jesus the Good Shepherd

Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me[a] are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

1“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 1But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

19 Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings. 20 And many of them said, “He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?”

21 Others said, “These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”

A Prayer for Free People


Hi Everybody!

Hope you are all having a great week. I came across this video which I’m posting today as a word of encouragement and inspiration to uplift anybody’s heart today. It is such a true gift to be free from a life that was bleak without God. Salvation is  a gift and freedom begins with a choice — by choosing Jesus to be our Lord and Savior; walking in the same spirit, in the same mind, in the same body as Christ did for us. Be blessed Everybody!
