Give Thanks

happy-turkey-day_give-thanksAh, the wonderful time of Thanksgiving. Sitting around the table with family and friends. Enjoying each other’s company filled with happiness and laughter. And, we certainly can’t forget about all the turkey, trimmings and pumpkin pie. What a glorious day to enjoy each year. The wonderful aromas filling the air.

But, have you ever taken a moment to look at the word, Thanksgiving. Do you realize that it can be broken down into two words? THANKS and GIVING!

When I think of Thanksgiving…sure, I remember all the wonderful memories of the years gone by. Cooking in the kitchen, enjoying the laughter, and watching football on TV. It is an amazing time for all to be had.

Have you ever realized that it could and should be a daily occurrence? Every time we wake up, we should THANK THE LORD for a new day. We should be thankful and grateful for the amazing day He has in store for us. It doesn’t matter what our circumstances look like at the moment. He has the answers and His ways are far beyond ours…so, we should be thankful that He will provide, heal, strengthen, and guide our steps.

We should also wake up each morning and be on the lookout of GIVING to someone in need. Giving is not just financial. You can GIVE a smile. You can GIVE time. You can GIVE kindness. You can GIVE a helping hand. There are so many ways to GIVE to our fellow man without breaking the bank. We just need to keep our eyes open and be ready to move when God shows us the way. It can be something as small as opening a door for someone. The key here is not to miss a moment; for giving is a beautiful way of living. You never know what that person is going through and you just might be God’s answer to them.

Let’s take a quick glance at what the Bible says about “Thanksgiving”:

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:18  “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
  • Psalm 107:1 “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”
  • Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
  • Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

See, every day is filled with opportunity. It can be filled with anger and depression or it can be filled with love and laughter. We all have a choice to make every time we wake up in the morning. So, from now on, how will you treat Thanksgiving? For me and my house, I will serve the Lord and continuously be thankful in all things and give whatever and wherever He leads me.

Grab Your Peace

Feed Your FatihWith all the craziness in the world, is it really surprising that people are so on edge?  When you listen to the economy forecasts, it can really dampen your mood and make you uncertain about the future.  When you see the turmoil happening throughout the world, it makes you wonder about what is going to happen next.  When you hear about viruses plaguing millions of people, you wonder if a vaccine can really stop it from spreading.  And on, and on, and on.

Everything that is happening really plays havoc with people’s minds and emotions. However, you don’t have to be one of them.  As believers, we are given a tremendous blessing that others in the world don’t have…

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

Regardless of what is going on around you, you can withstand it because Jesus gives us peace that surpasses all understanding.  We may not understand why things are happening, but, we can be content and peaceful while things are swirling around us.

Jesus has already overcome the world.  By focusing on Him, all things become possible. Jesus already defeated death, hell, and the grave.  He already conquered all sickness and disease. He already defeated all temptations and gave us the power. However, if that wasn’t enough, we have been given another, incredible promise…

As Christ is, so am I in this world. (1 John 4:17)

We are adopted into the Heavenly family.  We are heirs with Christ.  We are loved by our Heavenly Father who sees Christ when He looks at us.  We have all that Jesus has; there is nothing missing or broken about our lives.  Whether you can see the answer or not; we already have the answer.  Whether you can see your healing or not; you are already healed.

Silence

Don’t go by what you can see, feel, or touch. Look at Jesus and all that He already did! No matter what you face, He is the answer. AND, at His perfect timing, you will receive whatever you need.

So, keep your focus and let Him fill you with His peace.  For when you do, it won’t matter what happens around you. You’ll remain content and peaceful, knowing that your needs will be met because God will not break His promises. As Christ is, so are we!  No need to worry.  Stay in peace!

Believe It – Receive It – Act Like It

THE VICTORY IS ALREADY YOURS!

Significance of the Cross

Today is a great reminder of HOW AWESOME GOD IS! Without Him, we would be nothing. Without Him, there would be no hope. Without Him, we would not receive healing or restoration. So, let’s remember the significance of the CROSS. By placing Him first in our lives, everything else will be added!

THANK YOU JESUS!!!

Start 2022 Off Right

For all those who have been battling the forces, this word is for you. It doesn’t matter what satan and all his cronies have thrown at you, God’s got it covered. It doesn’t matter what you’ve lost, God’s got it covered.

He is calling all believers to raise up higher in 2022. You might have felt the tugging to eat better, go to bed earlier, pray for your enemies, put on a cigarette patch, get into His word more or listen to teachings more. Whatever God has been leading you to do, DO IT!!!!

There is no question God is moving, shaking and bringing His faithful higher. I would encourage each of you to listen the following series from Dr. JoLynne Whittaker. God had her complete a 12 days of Christmas series that blew my mind. Some of them had me in tears of joy, some had me in conviction and repent, some of them had me binding & loosing, some had me praying for my enemies; whatever the teachings guide you to do, Let God do it through you.

God has also called many to First Fruits for 2022 by Fasting & Praying for the next 21 days. It’s giving God the first of 2022 and allowing Him to set your path for the year. I would highly recommend you listen to Dr. JoLynne’s teaching “Put on Your Crown”. It will give you Biblical Insight and knowledge to put God First in 2022 and see what amazing things He has in store for you.

Whether you take this advice or not, go before the Lord and ask Him for His guidance. He will guide your path and help you be in alignment for His incredible 2022. The Acceptable Year of the Lord for His believers and the Vengeance of the Lord for evildoers.

The link to Dr. JoLynne’s powerful teachings is below. I highly recommend you start with Day 1 of 12 Days of Miracles and watch the entire series. Once you’ve completed the series, then listen to the most recent teachings called “Go In and Possess It”, God Is Igniting You in 2022″ and “Put on Your Crown”.
