Worship Sunday – Let the Holy Spirit Flow


Hi Everybody!

I hope you are having a blessed Sunday. My church and I have just finished the 21-Day Daniel Fast and we just have to give God praise. I have a song here that has been in my spirit from Jessica Reedy called “Flow”. It’s such a great song and I know it will bless  your spirit today. Sometimes I find that in different churches we get alot of teaching and preaching but when it comes time to minister, we get so caught up in church formalities that we simply just don’t allow the Holy Spirit to take over the service and watch Him move. This year, let us not quench the working power of the Holy Spirit and repent of the times we were stubborn and not listening to this amazing Helper that the Lord Jesus sent us. Let us work with the Holy Spirit rather than work against Him. Your miracles and answers are from Him anyway, so why quench the voice that seeks to deliver you in the first place. Allow this day for the Holy Spirit to move you, guide you and lead you to where God wants you to go. Obey the Holy Spirit this year, for when you put your trust in the Helper, He will lead you in the right direction.


John 14:26

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.


May this song bless your spirit today, Amen! :)

Let God Direct Your Path

sf_holySpirit_01

Hi Everybody!
I’m back from vacation and I  just wanted to give praise to God for making it the best I’ve ever had in a long while. Three weeks away from the noise and the distractions in my life have led me to feel so rejuvenated that I feel convinced that this year will be an amazing, dynamic, transforming and innovative year.

Everything from this point on is based on perspective. As I was praying to God during my holidays, the Holy Spirit showed me that a lot of things we go through in life are based on one of two perspectives; (1) It’s either we do things or experience things from our own perspective; or (2) we view our circumstances from God’s perspective.
Ask yourself, in light of where you are right now, how are you seeing your world? Is your worldview coming from your short-sighted carnal lens? Or are you allowing God to help you see clearly using His set of supernatural lenses?
The way in which you perceive your world today is the way in which you will choose to function in it.
Most of our reactions to situations are based on our perception of a situation. If you have a negative view of things, you will function with that negative under-tone in all that you do. If you have a positive view of the world, then you will function with that positive tone in all that you do. Many a time, we like to take things into our own hands and do things our own way, but lately, God has been showing me that it’s time we give the Holy Spirit some room to function in our lives since it is not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6).

Today’s post comes from a contemplation of this scripture from:
Proverbs 3:6 – In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

How many of us take the time to pray before we make a decision about something which even includes even the smallest of things in your tasks (i.e. shopping)? Many people want to hear from the Holy Spirit but they don’t want to include the Holy Spirit in their daily affairs. The Holy Spirit talks to us everyday, but it is up to us to take the time to make room for Him to voice His instructions. If you want to learn to hear from the Holy Spirit, you will have to learn to obey Him when he instructs you to do something. This is how you sharpen your hearing to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to YOU the Church of Jesus Christ. When you give room for the Holy Spirit to speak you will increase in your spiritual discernment and sensitivity towards the things of the spirit.
In this particular year of Divine Grace, you will have to quicken your spirit to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying. Many of your struggles right now are based on acts of disobedience and lack of attention to the Holy Spirit’s voice. It may sound hard to believe, but you sit down and do an inventory of your actions and ask yourself how many times did you consult or take the time to pray before deciding to take a course of action? Be honest with yourself. In fact, I’ll be the first to put my hand up and confess that there were times that I leaped into something head first without consulting the Lord on whether or not my decision was the right course of action to take and only discovered my mistakes after-the-fact. You don’t want to move in that level of mediocrity this year.
Don’t strive to build things with your own hands (Might and Power) without consulting with the Holy Spirit this year. If you do things like that, you will be actually working against yourself and you will indeed labour in vain. The Holy Spirit wants to guide you in the right direction which requires your ability to remain attentive, patient, and obedient. If you cannot master your ability to listen and obey to simple instructions, then you will block yourself from receiving instructions that could lead you to greener pastures.
Our perception of obedience must be changed in order to move away from doing things from our own will and actively pursuing God’s will. God’s will for your life is to prosper as your souls prospers, but if  you aren’t taking the time to pay attention to him, you might just “miss the mark” Also consider that “missing the mark” is also defined as “sin“.

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.”’

This should be your goal this year. Make it a point to seek God’s face this year and learn to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will guide you to people that will either show you the answer, be the answer or are a sign that you are heading in the right direction.  Learn to humble yourself and expect that your answers will come from the least likely of sources so do not judge prejudicially a book by its cover.
You want to prosper? Then focus on letting your ego step aside for a moment and give more room for the Holy Spirit to take over in your daily affairs. The more room you give to  allow the Holy Spirit to function in your life, the more you will be able to grow spiritually sensitive to hear God’s voice and incline your ears to instructions. You will avoid so much strife by learning to humble yourself to take heed to the Holy Spirit’s voice.
Some of you maybe asking, how do I hear from Him? You must first immerse yourself in the Word (the Bible) in order to know when the Lord is speaking to you. If you don’t know any of His Word, then how can you expect to learn to hear and recognize His voice in the first place?
A great analogy would be when you listen to a familiar song on the radio and you immediately know who sang the song and what the lyrics are to that song. How were you able to know who was singing if you didn’t read the lyrics, familiarize or meditate on the song? You wouldn’t be able to without doing those things, so in the same way, God instructs us to meditate on the Word of God Day and Night and to not have this Word depart from our mouths so that when we incline our ears to understanding we will be able to recognize the Holy Spirit’s voice. Make this your goal this year and seek God with all your heart, soul, and mind. God Bless your everybody.

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

[ A Book of Remembrance ] Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord And who meditate on His name.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

This song that I’m posting is one that I have posted before from Hillsongs United called Oceans. May this song bless your spirit today. :)

Worship Sunday: The Great I AM


Happy Sunday Everybody!

I just had to post this awesome song called The Great I AM by PHILLIPS, CRAIG & DEAN. This song is just filling up my spirit and I just had to share this song with y’all. I will post the video of this song being sung by LaRue Howard. It just sounds AWESOME. I pray that it blesses your spirit today. God Bless you Everybody! :)

Here are the lyrics:

 “Great I Am”

I want to be close, close to Your side
So Heaven is real and death is a lie
I want to hear voices of angels above
Singing as one

[Chorus:]
Hallelujah, holy, holy
God Almighty, the great I AM
Who is worthy, none beside Thee
God Almighty, the great I AM

I want to be near, near to Your heart
Loving the world and hating the dark
I want to see dry bones living again
Singing as one

[Chorus]

The great I AM

The mountains shake before You the demons run and flee
At the mention of the name King of Majesty
There is no power in hell
Or any who can stand
Before the power and the presence of the great I AM

The great I AM the great I AM yeah

[Chorus x2]

The great I AM
The great I AM
The great I AM

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

In Thy Name


God's NameHi Everybody,

Hope y’all are having a blessed weekend. Today, I want to post a video called “Thy Name”. 

The questions I have for your meditation today are:

Do you know who God is? Who is God to you?

Many people assume that they do many good works in His Name which make them stellar Christians in the eyes of people, but unfortunately, these same people ignore the voice of the Father (through the Holy Spirit) when He gives direction which is an act of DISOBEDIENCE.

If you are one of those that say “I have never heard the Lord say….” or “The Holy Spirit doesn’t speak to me…”, then You need to re-evaluate how you perceive yourself before the Father.

You need to have a revelation of who God is to you in order to hear what He is saying to  you in order for you to be who God wants you to be…and that is to be His child.

148663_10152093485351832_2085451673_nChildren of God are Children of obedience. Obedience is cultivated by a trust relationship. You need to Trust in the Father as the Father also has need to Trust in you.  Trust is built on Faith, and Faith comes by Hearing, and Hearing by the Word of the Lord (Romans 10:17).

Do you Trust God enough to Hear Him? Sometimes our Pride can cause us to be deaf to the Holy Spirit, but when we humble ourselves before Him and pray and seek His face, that is when we truly begin to Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to “Us” the Church as little children (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17,29; Revelations 3:6, 13, 22).  

You know the saying that goes…“When the student is ready, the master will appear”. Well, in our case…it’s different. In our case it is

“When YOU, the Child of God is ready, the Father will appear”. 

Are you ready to be what you were predestined to be? 

As Jesus is the Great Shepherd, He tells us that “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  (John 10:27).

In order to follow Jesus, we must be willing to hear what the Spirit of the Lord wants us to hear. 

God speaks to us everyday in so  many different ways. Do not put God in a box with your way of thinking. Learn to soften your heart and become sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. You can do this by meditating on the Word and acting on it by faith. When you reach out to the Father by faith, He will extend His hand to you. It’s all in His Word. He is not a man that He should lie. So reach out to Him today and learn to Hear from Him when He calls you by Name.

Scriptures to Meditate on: 

Psalm 73:28

But 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.
Ecclesiastes 5:1

Fear God, Keep Your Vows ] Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw nearto hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil.
James 4:8

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purifyyour hearts, you double-minded.
Numbers 23:19

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said,and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

May This video by Shiftworship Bless your Spirit today. God bless you everybody! :D

Doxology: Live to Praise and Worship Him Daily


Hi Everybody!

Today, I have a video from my favourite person Dan Stevers called Doxology (means: a liturgical formula of praise to God.).

I feel that we must really seek a life that gives us reasons to praise and worship God daily. It says in: Psalm 150:6  - Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. If we all have breath, we must live life with praise continually being in our mouths. Each day is a blessing in that many people did not see today, but if you are reading this…you are blessed to be alive. Life is a precious gift. Let us not squander this life with prayer-lessness, praise-lessness and worship-lessness (I know, I’m making up these words – humor me).  God seeks those that will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

John 4:23

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

We cannot worship the Father in this way if our flesh is fed more than our spirit.

The Lord Jesus sent us a Helper, who is the Holy Spirit to show us how to live life in a state of worship unto God Daily. It’s time to starve our fleshy desires and feed our spirits with the Holy things of God. We have to go back to the basics and reclaim our unity with the Holy Spirit once again. If we want to walk in the full power of the Spirit, we need to do what is necessary in order to feed it and die to the flesh.

The World is full of distractions, but we have the Bible to show us how we can maintain our focus on the important things in life.

God has to be your TOP #1 priority before anything else. Many people think that by putting God first you automatically get stuff…which we call “blessings”, but that in a way is a form of self-deception in that if all you are seeking is to get stuff from God, then you are still entertaining the fleshy side of you that seeks self-gratification through things, rather than seeking the intimacy one achieves by being in constant communication with the Lord of Hosts, our Lord Jesus Christ.

God seeks relationship, and worship is that link that brings us closer to Him. The reason why He seeks worshipers to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, is because it is only through the Spirit, and it is only in those who pursue and live by the Truth that will be able to tap into the very Heart of God.

John 16:13

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

David is a great example of such a worshiper, for he was a man after God’s Heart. The question we must ask ourselves today is … Are we after God’s heart, or are we after God’s stuff?

As I spend time in my prayer closet, I’ve come to feel that God is always near us…but the reason why it seems like He is so far away from us at times is because we haven’t fine tuned our spirits truthfully to hear Him when He calls us. Instead, we have nurtured a heart that seeks after the things that give us temporary pleasures and have ultimately blocked out the voice of Holy Spirit. What will it take for God to get your full attention? It’s amazing that in most cases, people remember God in the bad times…but God doesn’t want to be remembered only in the bad times….He wants to be a part of all the Good times in your life as well.

I believe that it is time for God to take the Throne-room of our hearts and take a seat. God is sovereign and He will only become sovereign to you when you decide that other things can wait, because “Lord, Your servant is listening.” I believe that in the present time, God wants to use those whose hearts are seeking Him diligently. It’s time to bend to the Will of God for your lives and it’s time to forsake our selfish attitudes and set aside our differences with people so that forgiveness reigns in your heart and peace travels with you because it says in God’s Word, that Only the Pure in Heart will see God.

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
So everybody, search deep within the crevices of your hearts and consider that it’s time to feed your Spirit and bury your fleshy way of life, because in the end, your body will perish one day, but it is your spirit that will live on into the next eternity.Make sure you live a life that prepares you for your eternity into the next by living to Praise and Worship God Daily.
I have a song here by Isaach Carree called Paradise. I pray that this video blesses your spirit today. God bless you everybody!

God – You Did!


pillar-of-light

Hi Everybody!

Honor-HimWooohoooooooo 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.

Exodus 33:10

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.

Exodus 13:21

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.

Nehemiah 9:12

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.

Nehemiah 9:19

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.
God will not leave you in the wilderness if you just allow Him to take you by the Hand and allow Him to lead you in the right direction, is what I’m hearing in my spirit right now as I’m typing this.
if-god-is-with-us
This word that is in my spirit right now is to encourage you as it is also an encouragement to myself. There are moments I wonder whether I am heading in the right direction as I sometimes am filled with anxiety wondering if I’m still following Him. There are moments where the road seems a bit blurry and you need that reassurance that you are walking in the right direction. Throughout the fast God has been telling me to not lean on my own understanding and to follow Him as He directs my path (Proverbs 3:5-7). Sometimes we operate by presumption, assuming we know where we ought to go…but that level of presumption can lead you astray if you are not careful. We can’t rely on our own understanding to get to where God wants us to be so we have to humble ourselves and allow Him to direct the path and He will make it clear for you. I pray that the journey ahead of all of us will be made clear and that in whatever we do, we must do it for the glory of God to be revealed to His lost sheep.
May the peace of God follow you throughout the year everybody!

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!
