Picture Yourself

BeautyEveryday, we are bombarded with “picture-perfect” people on television, the internet, and in magazines. Every where you look, you see models that are absolutely gorgeous to the eye. Flipping channels, you see advertisements for facial creams, liposuction, miracle “diet” pills, and the like. Is it any wonder why people have such a low self-esteem of themselves?

When we compare ourselves to others, we tend to see only our flaws. But what if you could picture yourself in a completely different light? Would it impact your life?

We have been specifically told that we are made a little lower than the angels, and that God crowned us with glory and honor. (Psalm 8:5)

Being God’s child, you are beautiful in His eyes. You are made in God’s own image. (Gen. 1:26)  He has given you talents, skills, and wisdom that is unique and all your own. No one else can compare to you. You are a MASTERPIECE! (Ephesians 2:10)  You are ROYALTY! (Rev. 1:6)

Instead of seeing all the so-called flaws, see yourself being surrounded in God’s amazing favor and glory. When you walk into a job interview, a business meeting, classroom, or a any where you go; see yourself surrounded in God’s anointing. See yourself having insight like no other person. See yourself getting the job or the promotion. God already crowned you…You have his incredible favor upon you.

Crowned

So, the next time you feel yourself getting depressed on the way you look or about something you are lacking…remember that you are wonderfully made in God’s image. Every hair is counted on your head and He ensures you have what you need, when you need it, and you are GORGEOUS in His eyes! His favor, glory, and honor surrounds you every where you go!

Walk tall and shine brightly.  For when you walk into the room, the atmosphere changes for the better because God’s glory is upon you!

Look Ahead

It’s so easy for us to look behind and become discouraged when we see what jobs, homes and people we have lost in the past. It’s time to look forward to see what God has in store for you. It’s time for change. It’s time for God’s mighty hand to bring forth what He has called you to be. It’s time for amazement, goodness & restoration. Can you see it? Can you perceive it? Can you stop looking back to see the incredible future that’s right in front of you?

Brother Eli’s incredible insight and NOW WORD will help you change your perspective. The right perspective will bring God’s goodness flooding into your life. Watch now and thank the Lord for the amazing changes He is bringing to pass RIGHT NOW! Open your eyes and heart…God is doing something amazing and your future is brighter than it’s ever been. Grab hold and see!

His Anointing Makes The Difference

Almost every believer in Jesus has been attacked lately. Whether it’s in your health, finances, family, friends, work, business or any other area of your life, it’s been a difficult time. Some of us have been attacked so much that when looking at the circumstances, you wonder how in the world will the mess change.

And the good news is…It will be by His anointing.

Your circumstances may look bleak. However if you are being attacked or you have no idea how in the world things are going to change, then you are primed for God to move mightily in your life. One small touch from Him and life changes in an instant.

God created us from dirt. He raised Lazarus from the dead. He took Joseph from the pit to the palace. Job lost everything and become more prosperous than he ever was before. And all it took was God’s anointing to dramatically change their lives.

We’re loved by the most Holy, Creative, Loving Heavenly Father who has unlimited resources! You may not see a way out but He does. The question is not about how things are going to change but how will you use the changes to impact those around you. Will you testify His goodness to touch someone else’s life? Will you use the resources He has given you to advance His Kingdom? Will you do what He asks you to do?

That one small touch changes everything.

Isaiah 58:8 “Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”

Think of it this way…before Moses was sent to help God’s people overcome and be released from Egypt, they were treated as slaves. They lost their land and possessions. They were abused, beaten and driven to exhaustion. But God had other plans for them. It took God’s anointing to take them from slaves to walking out of slavery with treasures and wealth. You could say they went from the pit to success and wealth.

So don’t think for a moment that God has forgotten you. Your wilderness may have been long suffering filled with pain, sorrow and hurt. But we serve a MIGHTY GOD whose touch can take you from the pit to restoration in a blink of an eye. It will be so overwhelmingly powerful that it will automatically get people’s attention; which in turn will give you an opportunity to glorify our Heavenly Father!

Will you be ready to do God’s will when His anointing comes upon you? HE IS A GOOD GOD and everything will be alright! Your breakthroughs are coming, just hold on and be prepared to glorify HIM!

God Loves You

God has really placed on my heart to share my story again, as most people don’t know. As hard as it is, I know the importance of what I’m about to discuss and we are all at a very critical point in life. Many of you have been fighting and wrestling with your own self-worth. In doing so, you tend to look back over the course of the years and see all the pain, the loss, and the suffering but not your true worth. Let me explain…

As a child, I was sexually abused. It led me to feel worthless and unloved. For so many years, I wrestled with the pain and suffering in a very quiet, lonely manner. In protection of my family, no one was aware of the situation. So I continued to deeply hurt all by myself, weeping silently while the shame and guilt consumed me.

For years afterwards, I felt like I didn’t deserve happiness. So, I dated all the wrong guys, lived well below my talents, lived rebelliously; and quite frankly, just never believed that I could be someone lovable or better than what I was living. Needless to say, I lived a very self-defeating lifestyle and learned how to push away others when they showed me what real love was. I simply couldn’t understand why they cared about me. I was broken. I allowed people to hurt me and, in turn, I hurt others as well. Until God called me, showed me how much he loved me and I learned what I’m telling you today!

For those of you who have been hurt, abused, shamed or felt neglected and lost…I HAVE GREAT NEWS!

YOU HAVE AN INCREDIBLE WORTH TO GOD AND YOU DESERVE HIS BEST!

Throughout the Bible, God used murderers, prostitutes and very evil men to show His amazing glory. So, no matter what has happened to you in life, no matter what people have said about you, no matter what you think of yourself…God sees someone beautiful and blessed.

Today…I ask you to release all the pain, hurt, anger, frustration and suffering of the past years and look forward to your amazing future that God has for you. (Philippians 3:13-14) Ask Him to restore all that you have lost. (Joel 2:25) Ask Him to fill you with His incredible love. (Ephesians 3:19)

You are one-of-a-kind. So, be brave and bold; walking out in faith to the most amazing journey of your life. With God, all things are possible (Mark 10:27). So, let go and be truly free! Give Him your cares, worries and doubts. (1 Peter 5:7) Watch Him bring you the most amazing and wonderful life He has in store for you! His amazing grace is upon you, He loves you and this is going to be the most amazing time ever in your life!

Believe it and Receive it! It is your time to shine!

What the heck is LOVE

Well, if we look at the world’s way…love is conditional.  You do this, I’ll do that.  You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.  Most of us have looked for love in all the wrong places.  Just look at the reality shows on TV.  Sex before marriage is the norm. Heck, statistics show that young kids are having sex by the age of 12 and they know more than adults, in this capacity.  Look at the Porn industry.  It’s huge.  Quite simply, it is an addiction to lust, sex and one-night stands; which is killing the very essence of our families, our society.  This isn’t love!

One of the most important things we need to realize is that the lack or void we feel can not be filled by things or people.  Nothing external can fill the void that is deep within ourselves.  Most people think that if they find a mate, life will be perfect.  Or they think, if only I had more money, I would feel happier. Nothing could be further from the truth.  For we can not expect someone or something to make us happy. If we are unhappy within ourselves, then how could they possibly make us happy.  It just isn’t possible and we are setting them and ourselves up for failure.

Let’s take a cat or dog, for an example.  Say you have been gone all day long and you finally make it home.  You open the Heart 2door to find that loving pet; excited to see you. Whether they are jumping up and down or jumping into your lap, they trusted you to come home and they are excited to show you how much they love you.  It is completely unconditional.  They are just happy to see you.

Well, that is how God loves us.  We can’t earn God’s love nor do we deserve it.  He simply loves us!  It is unconditional. (Ephesians 3:14-19)  He doesn’t care if we are short, tall, overweight, skinny or have pimples; He loves us RIGHT NOW, NO MATTER WHAT!

See, when we start realizing God’s love for us, we can then start feeling love for ourselves.  This in turn, fills the void deep within.  I’m not talking about an egotistical love for ourselves, thinking that you are better than anyone else.  What I’m talking about is having a deep love rooted for God, through God and into our own heart.

When we start experiencing this type of love, then and only then, can we begin showing love for others. This kind of love doesn’t depend on if the person deserves our love or not, we simply realize that God loves us and He loves them.  Nothing can take God’s love from you! (Romans 8:37-39)  THIS IS TRUE LOVE!

Love 1So, EMBRACE YOURSELF!  Look in the mirror and say “I AM BEAUTIFUL, GOD LOVES ME”. Repeat!  “I AM BEAUTIFUL, GOD LOVES ME”.    For when you really begin to feel God’s love for you, it will begin to create the most incredible, amazing, loving relationships that we all desperately crave!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone. You are loved today and forever.

You’re Amazing

With a new year upon us, many have vowed their New Year’s resolutions. They want to workout more, eat healthier, lose weight, quit an addiction and just become a better person than they are now. And with most of us, those are great things to accomplish yet many fail within a very short period of time.

Let this year be different. Don’t make your “to do” lists only to begin feeling overwhelmed and frustrated because you ate a donut. See yourself differently this year and place God first in your life. Let Him help you make whatever changes He feels is in your best interests.

specialYou are very special to God. He sees you as worthy through the blood of the lamb. You are a winner. You are amazing and beautiful. You are unique and special. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) You are the apple of His eye. (Psalm 17:8) You are His treasured possession. (Deut. 7:6)

It’s time to stop comparing yourself to others or looking in the mirror wishing this or that was different. It’s time for you to see yourself through God’s eyes. You are His walking masterpiece, a rare find that is filled with His amazing light and love. There is nothing you can’t do as you keep your eyes upon the Lord. He doesn’t want you feeling defeated, He wants you soaring like an eagle with your talents He gave you.

Don’t let another year go by without seeing His love for you. Let go of your past pain, hurt, anger, frustration, rejection and suffering. Let go of all the things you’d like to change about yourself. You are wonderfully made and there’s noone like you. You have special gifts that God has placed inside of you. He wants to burst forth those gifts and see you excel like never before.

God can and will restore all of those things that have been lost and change whatever needs to change. (Joel 2:25) Let this year be your amazing turnaround. Let this year be filled with lots of light and love. Give Him your cares and worries. Don’t let one more day hold you down with defeat or self-worthlessness. You are an amazing person. So be bold, confident, brave, and free!

Reflect on His love for you and everything else will turn out alright. You’re loved beyond your wildest imagination and there’s nothing too difficult for your Heavenly Father. He is right there with you in the midst of any battle or storm. Reach out and see how beautiful you truly are! It’s time to shine and let your amazing gifts burst forth! May this year be your year of transformation and restoration.  You will accomplish more in a day than you thought possible.

Receive it! Believe it! And walk in it!

Let this year be the year you shine like fireworks in the night sky. (Philippians 2:15)

Your True Identity

So many of us look at the past and think that is who we are. Do you see yourself through the eyes of betrayal, hurt, rejection, mistakes and pain? If so, you will constantly strive for approval and perfection. That’s the world’s way, not Gods!

Your past does not define you. Wherever you grew up, whatever you did or whatever happened to you is the past and that’s where it needs to stay. Once you became a Child of the Most High, all of your sins and everything that happened in the past goes away. Your true identity lies in Jesus and who He is.

Now when you start seeing Jesus and all of His beautiful attributes, the devil is going to bring up everything in the past to try and make you feel guilty, shameful, hurt, angry and everything else he can try to persuade you that you aren’t worthy. But the devil is a liar!!!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come.” 2 Cor. 5:17

You are a new creature in Christ. His strength, power, love, kindness, freedom, holiness, and righteousness became you. You are a child of the Most High. The one and only true God! You are born again by the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-6). You are saved by grace as a gift, not because of your performance (Ephesians 2:8).

The right to your new life is a gift from God Almighty! You are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14), you will shine like stars in the sky (Philippians 2:15), you are the salt of the earth (Matt. 5:13), you are a vessel of God’s divine light (2Cor 4:6).

That is your identity. Jesus died to give us life and life more abundantly, to make us the head and not the tail, above and not below, to be more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Embrace the new you. You are royalty, an heir to the throne, and God’s loving arms are wrapped around you everywhere you go. You are an amazing person. Don’t look back, continuously look forward. God’s grace, love, power, strength, provision and healing power is upon you. Be the light in this dark world and remind the devil that he is a liar. You are special, loved and highly-favored by God Almighty.

Is Your Mind Made Up?

Are you teetering between God can but may not?

If it’s been a long-hard journey, it’s very easy to let doubt seep in. BUT GOD IS NOT A LIAR AND HIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN VOID! (Isaiah 55:11)

Listen to this wonderful brief word from Brother Eli. It will empower you to hold on, let go of the past and let God shine through! You have an amazing victory on the other side. Hold on, God will breakthrough!

Heart vs. Words

What words have you spoken? Do you believe what you speak? Have you been asking God to help but your heart is not really believing it can happen? Are you speaking God’s word over your situations but not really expecting things to change?

With the Thanksgiving season upon us, it’s time for a real heart checkup; where we need to get real with ourselves to determine the root cause of our situations and why things are remaining the same. It’s not to beat yourself up or to point fingers, this is truly to examine ourselves so we can grow to give without expecting things in return. God is a Good Father and sees all things. He wants you happy, whole, living from a love perspective and succeeding. But with pastors of today, we are being taught to give in order to get. That puts us out of alignment with our Heavenly Father. How can He honor our giving if we have ulterior motives?

With such an amazing holiday season upon us, take a moment and listen to this eye-opening word from Brother Eli. Listen with an open-heart, be true with yourself and allow God to help you modify anything that needs to be changed. God wants so much for you and your family. Don’t miss this moment to get right with God and to do things His way. He sees all and nothing you do will go unnoticed.

With much love, may you and yours have a very wonderful holiday season.

It’s Time

We’ve been pushed down long enough. Emotions have gotten the best of us. Enough is enough! It’s time to come out of the wilderness!

Brother Eli is an incredible man of God and has been right on target all year. He just released a powerful word that you need to hear right now. Don’t wait – start speaking to your situations, God is ready to bring you out! It’s time for VICTORY!!!

Keep The First Thing First

When we teach children how to go from crawling to walking their first steps, we expect them to stumble. We expect them to take time to learn how to walk on their own. It takes patience, kindness and love as the children learn and grow. God is like that too. He is a loving and kind Father.

As we begin to walk with God, it takes time to read HIS WORD, learn HIS WAYS and obtain HIS KNOWLEDGE. He isn’t angry with us. He understands that our spiritual growth takes time to cultivate and grow. He bandages us up and continues working in our lives, all the while He is patient and stays with us until we reach our destination.

As we read in Proverbs 4:1-9, we are told to pay attention in order to gain and to know intelligent discernment, comprehension and interpretation for God gives us good doctrine. While we grow in our abilities to rightly divide and understand God’s word, we are not to forsake His teachings or corrections. It is written that we are to hold fast to His word, keep His commandments and we shall live.

The first and most important thing is get skilled, godly wisdom and understanding. By walking with God and reading His word, WISDOM will be added. But why is wisdom so important?

Wisdom leads to understanding, discernment, comprehension and interpretation. She keeps, defends and protects you. Proverbs 4:8, says to prize Wisdom highly and exalt her, and she will exalt and promote you; she will bring you to honor when you embrace her. She shall give to your head a wreath of gracefulness; a crown of beauty and glory will she deliver to you. Proverbs 4:13 says take hold of instruction and do not let go. Guard her for she is your life.

So in other words, Wisdom will always lead you to God’s best. Wisdom will guide you in all things. You will know how to rightly handle money, friends, family, commitments. She will lead you to make right choices.

Wisdom is life. Seek first the Kingdom and everything else shall be added. Read the Word, hear the Wisdom, get knowledge and discernment for they will fill your life with wonderful outcomes.

Life can get so busy that we forego reading the Bible and instead start watching teachings online or on the television. However there are many false prophets in the world today. They may be giving you only a small fraction of the truth that keeps you in a defeated pattern. The only true way of knowing God and having Him fill your life with sustainable truth is by reading HIS WORD yourself.

God’s Word is the truth and is worth reading every single day. It brings life, revelation, breakthroughs, miracles, healing, Wisdom, discernment and understanding. Isn’t that worth turning off the television, the internet or the video games to spend time with the Creator of the Universe who knows you better than you know yourself?

Don’t miss your moment. Keep First Things First! Get into the Word today and allow HIM to cultivate you. Be filled with Wisdom and all she offers. You will not be disappointed and your life will be filled with much greater things than you ever believed possible.

Cleanse Your Bloodline & Gifts

For believers who have been going in circles, getting no where…boy is this posting for you today. If your life seems to be going through the motions, working hard but getting no where fast, finding yourself in the same situations over and over, then today is your day for a new beginning.

God is cleansing and purging things from our lives, our governments, our families and our friends. We need to be in alignment with Him. In order to clear the clutter so to speak, we must be delivered from all ties from the past; going all the way back to Adam and Eve. We need to break the vicious cycles in order to move forward with God and fulfill our God-given destinies.

The following prayer should be decreed and declared over your life. I’ve added a huge variety of things to make sure we all touch every aspect of our lives. However, please add anything God places on your heart for He knows your life, generations and gifting better than I do.

I spoke this over my own life and my families’ lives this morning. Half way through, the atmosphere shifted and the heaviness lifted. Once that happened, I don’t even recall reading the rest of the prayer because my worship went through the roof. It was absolutely amazing and I know God said “It is finished” and I distinctly heard 3 days!

This prayer is long but mighty and powerful. It is the most important thing you can do for you and your family, RIGHT NOW!!! I also included some other tidbits and a nightly prayer for you to say each evening before you go to bed. May the Lord bless you and break all of the enemies’ ties upon your life for your NEW BEGINNING IS HERE!

Cleanse Bloodline & Gifting Prayer:

Praise God, thank you Jesus, hallelujah. Father God I come before you today. As I come into your presence Father, I thank you and praise you that I can come by way of the blood of Jesus and the cross. Father God I thank you for your spirit. Holy Spirit of the Most High and only the Spirit of the true living God, I call upon you today, Jesus said how big when the spirit of truth comes that he will guide us into all truth and by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, may only the truth come forth today. Holy Spirit I ask you to take the reins and control. I give you permission to take a platform in me, your daughter. Have your way Father Lord Jesus. You are a strong, ruling, loving King and I welcome you in every area of my life and my families’ life.

Father God, the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel and Father of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the one true God, the God of Elijah who answers by fire. I welcome you Father; I give you the praise and glory Father because you are worthy. Hallelujah. I know that it’s the anointing that breaks the yoke so Father I believe you today that you are breaking yokes right now in the name of Jesus. I believe you are breaking through the darkness with your truth that sets the captives free. I know because we are living in a day that it is getting darker but it will never ever be greater than the light. The light that is on the inside of us so we praise your Holy Name and we give you the glory in Jesus’ name, have your way today Lord. And we bind right now the prince of darkness, the prince of the power of the air, we bind all interference. I renounce any god that has been given homage to, whether by me or any of my bloodlines or extended family bloodlines. I renounce and rebuke any mixture or contamination that was caused by it. I block by divine authority from my seat in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I block demonic satanic occultic in witchcraft and water witchcraft interference in anything I or my family does today in Jesus’ name right now and I command the angels of the Most High God that the Lord is giving commission to guard me and my family, whether you give the command to the angels Father or you give the command to the angels on the inside of me because your spirit rests in me, I thank you that I can take power and right now I do according to Luke 10:19, I take power over all the power of the enemy.

In your word Lord Jesus, you said that you give us power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and the power of the enemy and nothing by no means shall harm me or my family. So according to your word Lord Jesus right now I take power over all the power of the enemy and I strip him of his power to operate and I command the host of the third heaven of the Most High God who Jesus Christ as Lord over to go now and shred, bash and trash every demonic spirit, every satanic interference in the name of Jesus and I decree and declare that my house will serve the Lord and your will shall be done in each and every person in my family, extended family and generations to come. We will serve the Lord and be called friends by the Most High God. I decree and declare that your precious word filled with truth shall shine upon us filled with wisdom and discernment.

I repent for me and all my family generations for opening any door that has been used for evil purposes. Forgive us Lord for all sins in past, current and future generations. Wash us white as snow and cleanse us all in the blood of Jesus and shut down all portals and help us know how to stop opening them up.

Father I come in the name of Jesus, by faith to you, I come before your throne of grace and I ask Father God in Jesus name that you will forgive me and that you will forgive my bloodline on my mother’s side, my father’s side, my step-father’s side and anyone linked to our family in any way, and I ask God that the blood of Jesus which speaketh better things than that of Abel’s blood would speak for me right now. I ask that the blood of Jesus Christ would answer every accusation of the enemy right now. Wherever the enemy is saying that he has governance and he has control over my gifts that you have given me Father, over the anointing on my life Father, I’m asking that you would please allow the blood of Jesus to destroy every agreement, every trade, every covenant, every contract with demonic powers concerning my gifts, concerning my bloodline, let the blood of Jesus cleanse it right now Father. Let the blood of Jesus answer the accusations of the enemy and let the blood of Jesus destroy those agreements in Jesus name. And Father I thank you and praise you for it. Father I said to be taken back, let the blood of Jews go back all the way to the third, fourth, fifth generations, all the way back to Adam and Eve in Jesus name. And now Father in Jesus name by faith, I come into agreement with what the blood of Jesus speaks. I agree that the blood of Jesus speaketh better things in that of Abel’s blood. I agree with the superior blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. And now Father in Jesus name, I thank you that the blood of Jesus purified my gifts and I ask that every portal that was opened in and around my life, the familiar spirits that feed me information would be shut down, would be closed, would be shut and sealed with the blood of Jesus, never again to be reopened and I cut every tie, every chord, every link to familiar spirits right now in the name of Jesus Christ by the power in the blood of Jesus let all of those chords and ties be cut in Jesus name and let those or any replacement spirits never again have any place in my life or my families lives in Jesus name I pray. I thank you and praise you Father God for doing whatever you have to do to make sure when I come and say thus says the Lord that it is a true word of prophecy from the throne of the Most High God who sent His Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth to die for the sins of the world. In Jesus’ Name. Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Witches, wizards, warlock, sorcerers, mediums, necromancers (calls up the dead), diviners, evil gatekeepers, watchers, palm readers, psychics, witchcraft, ouija board users, abortionists, seances, tarot card readers, scanners, recorders and squatters and any other abominations to our Heavenly Father, we bind you and blind you right now, we deafen your ears in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ that you will not interfere nor will you learn from us, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, I ask that you wash me, my family members, and all generations in the blood of Jesus. May you forgive us of any witchcraft or evil deeds performed and any giftings given away throughout our bloodlines. Forgive us for giving and donating money and gifts to corrupt, deceptive and evil places (with or without our knowledge of wrong-doing). Heavenly Father, sever any silver cords, destroy and nullify any contracts, trade agreements, dedications and covenants made in our bloodlines, ancestors, forefathers, foremothers, gifts, friendships, ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, ex-husbands, ex-wives, babysitters, daycares, co-workers, ex co-workers, employers, ex-employers, people we had sex with outside of marriage, people with lived with outside of marriage, preachers, teachers, prophets, churches, money, insurance, bank institutions, companies, social media, and all other people we’ve been in contact with that are linked with the enemy.
Set us free from all the bondage, never to return forevermore. May my and my family’s names be in the book of Life never to be blotted out, doing your will for our lives, standing for the truth that sets us free and glorifying your name Heavenly Father.

Father I thank you for preparing us, your people that will rise up in truth, that will not compromise in Jesus’ name and we will make it known to the powers of hell that we do not negotiate with hell, there shall be no negotiations in Jesus’ name. Father provide your word in precise, concise manners that we comprehend your word, discern your word and know the difference so that we are not deceived in these last days. Help us manage correctly your discerning spirit Lord.

Jesus said He came to give us life and life more abundantly so I ask Heavenly Father that your will to be done. I bind the spirit of fear, strife, anxiety, worry, stress, depression, oppression, fatigue, tiredness, exhaustion, lack, poverty, lust, inflammation, weight gain, pride, ego’s, addictions, anger, abuse, pornography, tarot reading, psychics, rebellion, stubbornness, gossip, adultery, fornification, gambling, witchcraft, divorce, negative thoughts, sickness and disease, deprivation and every other evil spirit that is trying to take down me and my family members.

I pray in the name of Jesus, they are gone forevermore and any other door that was left open for evil spirits to use against us is now closed shut, never to be opened again in the Name of Jesus. Lord bless our enemies with more Jesus Christ of Nazareth’s love and as the Word says stuff for not a witch to live. As it is written in Psalm 149:9, therefore I execute the judgements written that you have honored all your saints with. Redeem us from the evil ones and replace it with a renewed mind and heart, prosperity, health, restoration of all that’s been lost & stolen and that we have more than enough to spare and share freely. Fill us with your wisdom and discernment so that we are not deceived in these last days. Allow us to be walking testimonies of your mighty hand, strength, power, protection, love and goodness. By the blood of Jesus may the truth come forth and may we draw people to Jesus not to ourselves. Father I decree and declare that me and my family will be mighty men and women of God.

I decree and declare that we will not miss our God-given Christ-centered destiny, I decree and declare we shall be free from sin, darkness and the enemy, and I decree and declare we shall be living testimonies of the saving power and blood of Jesus Christ and in the earth.
Heavenly Father it is written that strife causes confusion and evil doings, I decree and declare that whatever is causing family strife be healed in the name of Jesus as it is written by His stripes we are healed and our family is made whole.
I bind mind binding spirits so we can make right minded decisions. I ask that you take off the blinders and scales from our eyes so that we may see you fully in our hearts, minds, words and actions. As it is written in 1 John 2:27, Lord I ask that you activate and stir up the anointing that’s inside each one of us in Jesus’ name. I release your anointing in our beds, finances, clothes, bodies, employments, businesses, customers, equipment, vehicles, minds, friends, food, cabinets, appliances, tv and devices, mirrors, cameras, toilets, bathrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, playrooms, toys, designs, movies, music, vehicles, and every area of our lives and nullify the power of the enemy. I forbid the enemy to use any area of our lives as portals today and forevermore.

For your glory in Jesus’ mighty name. Let your angels Father God surround our homes inside and out, that you keep your angels strategically positioned in our homes, properties, employment, businesses and dreams. Father God guard and protect us and our children. Right now, we bind up, rebuke and forbid all demonic and satanic backlash retribution, activity, counter-attacks at the hands of the enemy in the name above all names, Jesus Christ Lord and Savior. Father we give you all praise and glory for your goodness and hand of protection being upon us. In Jesus mighty name. Amen!

EVENING PRAYER BEFORE BED:
Heavenly Father I come to you to reactive my dreams and bind up any spirit that would try to cause nightmares in my dreams, any spirit that hinders me from hearing and remembering my dreams and visions, any dream catchers and dream snatchers, any spirit (like caterers or witchcraft caterers) that tries to feed me satanic food in my dreams or visions that is set to weaken me or diminish my light or worship in any way. I bind up the spirit of fear or any spirit that makes me jump and turn in my sleep and any spirit that hinders me from remembering, hearing your guidance, instructions and wisdom, or seeing your Heavenly dreams and visions. Heavenly Father I plead the blood of Jesus over my dreams. Any power, personality or force that tries to stash or project into my dreams or into the spirit realm against me or my family, I decree and declare that the silver cords shall be cut in the name of Jesus. Let your angels Father God surround our homes inside and out, that you keep your angels strategically positioned in our homes, properties, dreams. Father God guard and protect us and our children. Right now, we bind up, rebuke and forbid all demonic and satanic backlash retribution, activity, counter-attacks at the hands of the enemy in the name above all names, Jesus Christ Lord and Savior. Father we give you all praise and glory for your goodness and hand of protection being upon us. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

Tidbits:

Lord bless them with more Jesus Christ of Nazareth’s love. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen!

PRAY BEFORE YOU GIVE TO ANY CHURCH OR CHARITY. IF THEY ARE 501(C)3 they are part of the enemies’ system (baal and molock). They are in the system that God is taking down and cleansing. You must be careful where you donate because it creates a silver cord in your life and can affect your finances, decisions, etc.

God Is The Potter

God is the potter and we are the clay. (Isaiah 64:8) He molds us, shapes us and continues to lovingly help us grow in Christ. Whatever He has for you is far greater than what you could even imagine. In all honesty, it’s so amazing that you couldn’t handle seeing it all at once.

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV) “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love him.”

Our Heavenly Father loves us so much. He takes us through the steps. As we become closer to Him, we begin to understand who He really is and we learn how to lean into Him through all difficult situations.

We need to be speaking His word over our lives. No matter what we see or encounter that is contrary to His word, it can not overtake you. God says no weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) So keep your eyes on Him through it all.

The devil is a liar and he will try to do everything he can to harm you. BUT WE SERVE A MIGHTY GOD who sees everything that has been done or said against you. GOD’S MIGHTY HAND WILL PREVAIL and YOU WILL SEE RESTORATION. Your pain, suffering and loss has to be restored to you 7-fold.

“But if he [the thief] is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole, even if he has to sell everything in his house.” Proverbs 6.31

God is faithful and HIS word will not return void. Don’t let the contrary things in life get you down. You will be restored. Don’t let go of God!!! Don’t look behind or ahead…keep your eyes on HIM and everything will turn out for your good through HIS mercy and grace.

You will be exalted. Lay down the betrayal, hurt and pain at His feet. Bless those who have hurt you. Start thanking Him for turning all the terrible situations into something more amazing than you can see or imagine. Your testimony is going to be incredible. Your latter years are going to be far greater than your former years. Will you be ready to give HIM all the Glory when your situations turn into your favor? Will you remember that it is HE that brought you out of the wilderness?

You Will Be Vindicated

You’ve been tested! You’ve been tried! You’ve been through the wilderness! And now it’s time for your vindication!

Here’s a powerful word for you today by Brother Eli. It will touch deep within you, helping you understand why you went through what you’ve went through, lost what you’ve lost and why it’s time for you to rise and shine!

Please disregard any advertisements you may encounter under this posting as the author does not endorse them. Thank you and God bless!

Speak Life and Rejoice

I’ve been through the worst (and very long) wilderness season of my life. And I know just how painful it can be. One of the hardest sorrows is losing loved ones. I’ve lost some of the closest people that meant the world to me. The sadness, depression and tears that tried to take me out. But the devil is a liar and I’m still standing just like you are!!!

The way you look at death is very important, especially if you know they believed in our Lord Jesus. On earth we are mourning from the loss, from the memories and everything else that correlates back to that person. However they are in the presence of our Heavenly Father, seeing things beyond our comprehension and feeling the absolute pure love in Heaven. They aren’t regretting the loss, they are celebrating life in it’s purest form. They gained their rightful place and are enjoying life far greater than they ever had on earth. How awesome is that? It almost makes you jealous thinking of what joy, love, peace, smells, colors and amazing awe-inspiring things they are experiencing. And guess what…we are blessed because we will see them again! So rejoice, it’s not over…it’s just the beginning of great things to come.

It doesn’t matter what we have endured nor what it looks like. Jesus says He came to give us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). He also says that death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). It’s important what we say every moment of every day!!!

We may not understand what happened, but the past is just that…the past. Let it all go and rejoice in the Lord. “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22) So instead of seeing the pain, the loss or suffering; look at it from God’s perspective. Everything that has happened to you will be turned into your favor. God is unlimited and all things are possible. You will see His incredible promises come to light. Start rejoicing today before you even see it change, for God can not lie and HE will do mighty things in your life. So again I say REJOICE!!!

Check out this incredible, motivating word from Brother Eli. He’s right on target and it will help you see things from a positive light! Don’t let the devil steal one more moment from you. Speak life and rejoice for your better days are here!!!

God wants us moving into our promised land and free! Hear what Jesus did for us and start walking in it everyday. It’s our choice. What will you choose today?

You Are Being Set Free

Have you been stuck? Have you done everything you could but got no where? Have you been in a life situation that felt like a prison? Then listen and believe in the GOOD NEWS!!!

You have an amazing destiny ordained by God. You have endured the hardships now it’s time to walk into your promised land! God is setting the captives FREE!

Are you ready for HIS GLORY to come upon your life? Watch this incredible word today! You are coming out of your wilderness and into the 7-fold return. Praise the Lord for HE IS GOOD and the days ahead of you are going to be amazing!

His Anointing Makes The Difference

Almost every believer in Jesus has been attacked lately. Whether it’s in your health, finances, family, friends, work, business or any other area of your life, it’s been a difficult time. Some of us have been attacked so much that when looking at the circumstances, you wonder how in the world will the mess change.

And the good news is…It will be by His anointing.

Your circumstances may look bleak. However if you are being attacked or you have no idea how in the world things are going to change, then you are primed for God to move mightily in your life. One small touch from Him and life changes in an instant.

God created us from dirt. He raised Lazarus from the dead. He took Joseph from the pit to the palace. Job lost everything and become more prosperous than he ever was before. And all it took was God’s anointing to dramatically change their lives.

We’re loved by the most Holy, Creative, Loving Heavenly Father who has unlimited resources! You may not see a way out but He does. The question is not about how things are going to change but how will you use the changes to impact those around you. Will you testify His goodness to touch someone else’s life? Will you use the resources He has given you to advance His Kingdom? Will you do what He asks you to do?

That one small touch changes everything.

Isaiah 58:8 “Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”

Think of it this way…before Moses was sent to help God’s people overcome and be released from Egypt, they were treated as slaves. They lost their land and possessions. They were abused, beaten and driven to exhaustion. But God had other plans for them. It took God’s anointing to take them from slaves to walking out of slavery with treasures and wealth. You could say they went from the pit to success and wealth.

So don’t think for a moment that God has forgotten you. Your wilderness may have been long suffering filled with pain, sorrow and hurt. But we serve a MIGHTY GOD whose touch can take you from the pit to restoration in a blink of an eye. It will be so overwhelmingly powerful that it will automatically get people’s attention; which in turn will give you an opportunity to glorify our Heavenly Father!

Will you be ready to do God’s will when His anointing comes upon you? HE IS A GOOD GOD and everything will be alright! Your breakthroughs are coming, just hold on and be prepared to glorify HIM!

Why It’s Been So Difficult

What an amazing time we are living in. God is moving, shaking and changing lives. AND YOUR BEST IS HERE!!!

We have all been hit hard in life. Everything that should have happened, didn’t. People that should have had your back, left or talked bad about you. Your finances dried up; barely squeaking by. Family members went to heaven; even though you prayed and did everything you knew to do. It seems like the wilderness and dry places were more than most of us could bare.

But I have great news for you today! It was all a set up and you’re about to move into your promise land. Whooo, glory to God! Hallelujah!!!

God knows how hard it was for you. He knows the pain and struggles you faced. He saw you holding on by a thread, wondering why everything was happening to you. But you held on to Him against all the odds and now it’s time to move into your amazing destiny and future.

Listen to Brother Eli in the video below as he so wonderfully describes why this wilderness was so different from those in the past and what your moving into. You will be jumping for joy, dancing to the Lord and giving God all the glory. Looking forward to hearing all the incredible things God does in your life. God Bless!!!

Praise Him In The Middle

God is doing new things across the world right now. He’s stirring up anything and everything that has been causing evil in our lives. His hand is mightily stretching forth and He’s calling His servants to come out of the world’s systems. He’s pulling all of us into higher understanding and is asking us to see His mighty works transform. The most important thing we can do right now is PRAISE HIM!

Psalm 113 (KJV): 113 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. 2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. 3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised. 4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high, 6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! 7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; 8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. 9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.

Not everyone has gone through the things we have. Not everyone was called for this specific time and purpose. So don’t listen to those murmuring, complaining or those trying to give you advice on what you should do when they haven’t been through the wilderness season like you have. They don’t get it. They don’t see the gut-wrenching pain you’ve been through and quite honestly they don’t understand it.

Our wilderness seasons have been long and hard. They have brought us to our knees in tears; wondering “why God why” and “when God when”. God is calling all of us to look to Him for victory. We have the victory no matter what our lives look like. It doesn’t matter what has been lost, stolen or what our lives look like at the moment. Trust and believe in Him. Praise Him for who He is and watch Him transform your life into something more amazing than ever imagined. His ways are far greater than ours. So don’t trust the naysayers or their guidance.

Our Heavenly Father loves us very much and has seen what’s come against us. Don’t give up, don’t lose hope and praise Him in the middle of your situation right now. He’s doing mighty things and wants you to praise Him even before you see the situation change.

Praise up, look up and never forget…everything that has been done against you was done against your Heavenly Father. He wants your situations to change more than you do. But will you give Him the Glory when they change? Let Him know right now that you will give Him all the praise and glory even before things change. He wants you restored, successful and victorious. Praise Him right now and watch your victories come to pass. Hallelujah Praise the Lord for He is good, loving, caring and the Creator of the Universe. He is worthy to be praised!

YOUR NOW WORD

For all of those who have been through trials, difficulties, stagnation, health issues…God has a mighty word for you!

He has seen you struggle. He has seen your difficulties. He has seen your pain. He has also seen you remain standing on His word no matter what was happening in your life. Your NOW WORD is here!

Not everyone was chosen for the difficult times. You were hand picked by our Heavenly Father for a mighty purpose. Stand tall and know He is with you. Watch this amazing NOW WORD video from Prophetic Drive Time. He is an anointed man of God and brings the most incredible revelation filled with peace, joy and your move forward. Be Blessed and Watch Now!

Being Like Jesus

Have you ever wondered what Jesus’ ministry was all about? Who was Jesus? What did He do on earth? And what did He ask the disciples to do?

Throughout scripture, Jesus was love. He went about casting out demons from those possessed, healing the sick, and speaking the Good News of the Gospel. He never asked for anything in return accept to simply believe in Him.

What does that mean for us today?

Jesus was with God from the very beginning. When Jesus went to the cross, He said “It is finished”. He broke every curse, every disease, every plague, everything that could come against those of us who believe in Him. By shedding His blood and hanging on the cross, Jesus gave authority back to us. By His blood, victory is ours against any principality that does not align with God’s loving word.

As believers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we are to become more like Jesus every day. We are to fellowship with Him, love Him, love our neighbors, help those in need, and go about setting captives free.

The Holy Spirit resides in every believer. Every where you go, He goes. The Holy Spirit is very present and alive today.

As we go through our daily lives, we should be touching others with the love of Christ. Whether you speak God’s word or you are present in their time of need, whatever God asks you to do, simply do it. In these last days people need to see Jesus in a strong, loving, compassionate way and you may be the only person they have an encounter with that can change their lives.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your task may be. God will finish His work through you and touch all those who He wishes to touch through your life. Be brave, bold, and focused on the one true God. For Jesus said He is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Lean on Him, learn from Him, thank Him and do all He has called you to do. These end days are filled with lies and deception. Be the one who stands above the crowd. Yearn to hear those precious words “well done, good and faithful servant” (Matt. 25:23).

These days are difficult and filled with hopelessness. Be the one who shines brightly and impacts those around you. For you never know what that person is thinking or going through. Just one small gesture could save a life in the midst of their pain.

Solid Rock

We sure can give the devil alot of air time. When anything happens that we don’t like, we quickly say the devil did it. The devil gave me a flat tire, the devil gave me the flu, the devil made that person treat me badly or walk away.

What if it was God who made it happen? Now I know what you must be thinking…
“God would never do such a thing.”
“God would never allow something bad to happen.”
“God would never allow someone to treat us wrong or walk away.”

But guess what, His word says He does.
Haggai 1:9 “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the Lord Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house.”

God allows certain things to happen in our lives so we won’t blow it. It’s not to punish you or get back at you…it’s to protect you. If He allows us to depend on ourselves or others, we can easily get too attached to it and forget that He is our source.

He created us. He breathed life into us. He gave us our gifts. He gave us our professions. He gave us family. He gave us friends. He gave us the funds. He owns it all but He has freely given to us and we need to make sure we keep our eyes fixed on Him and not our things.

When God sees us building our house on sinking sand and not His strong foundation, He might step in to rattle our lives a bit to help us refocus and return to Him. He would rather see us go through a season of frustration than to build our lives on the wrong foundation. That’s how awesome and loving our Father is!

He wants each of us to be significant and sometimes the only way to do that is shake us up a bit to get us back onto the right path. Don’t let the would of, could of, should of, fixing too thoughts wane you from God. We all have plans in motion and the plan might be God’s plan for our lives. But if we take our focus off Him and start believing in ourselves, the plan, our works, our friends/family, our money or anything else more than God Himself, then you can definitely expect a shake up to come.

Don’t forget who is the plan master, the provider, the distributor and the opportunity maker. Build your house on His strong foundation; making Him your first priority every single day and in everything you do, then you don’t have to worry, stress or fear about what the day brings.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Your True Identity

So many of us look at the past and think that is who we are. Do you see yourself through the eyes of betrayal, hurt, rejection, mistakes and pain? If so, you will constantly strive for approval and perfection. That’s the world’s way, not Gods!

Your past does not define you. Wherever you grew up, whatever you did or whatever happened to you is the past and that’s where it needs to stay. Once you became a Child of the Most High, all of your sins and everything that happened in the past goes away. Your true identity lies in Jesus and who He is.

Now when you start seeing Jesus and all of His beautiful attributes, the devil is going to bring up everything in the past to try and make you feel guilty, shameful, hurt, angry and everything else he can try to persuade you that you aren’t worthy. But the devil is a liar!!!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come.” 2 Cor. 5:17

You are a new creature in Christ. His strength, power, love, kindness, freedom, holiness, and righteousness became you. You are a child of the Most High. The one and only true God! You are born again by the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-6). You are saved by grace as a gift, not because of your performance (Ephesians 2:8).

The right to your new life is a gift from God Almighty! You are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14), you will shine like stars in the sky (Philippians 2:15), you are the salt of the earth (Matt. 5:13), you are a vessel of God’s divine light (2Cor 4:6).

That is your identity. Jesus died to give us life and life more abundantly, to make us the head and not the tail, above and not below, to be more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Embrace the new you. You are royalty, an heir to the throne, and God’s loving arms are wrapped around you everywhere you go. You are an amazing person. Don’t look back, continuously look forward. God’s grace, love, power, strength, provision and healing power is upon you. Be the light in this dark world and remind the devil that he is a liar. You are special, loved and highly-favored by God Almighty.

Be You

Everyone of us has a purpose in the Kingdom of God. Whether you are called to be a teacher, writer, preacher, a bible study host, singer, scientist, doctor, janitor, a stay-at-home parent, an encourager, someone who smiles, or anything in between, we are all called according to His purpose. We may not know exactly what our calling is but we can rest assured that when God calls upon us, He will have already equipped us to become that special person for the Kingdom.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,
plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Each one of us is uniquely made. We are to be special and not like each other. Every single one of us are to become the person God wants us to be. Then together, we all uniquely fit into God’s bigger picture.

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus
to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Just because we see someone excelling doesn’t mean we need to try to be like them. We were never to be like someone else. God has given you a special calling and a creative talent that no one else has. When we try to be like someone else, we are actually attempting to be something we are not called to be which only leads to failure and frustration.

Our purpose is the very meaning of our existence and a distinct impact on the world around us. It’s very easy to look at others and think they have what you want, they are making a difference when you feel you don’t, they have a life you would like, they look how you wish you looked, and the list goes on. Never feel like your life doesn’t matter because it does. Say it with me, “MY LIFE MATTERS!”

Whether you realize it or not, your life is making an impact. People are always comparing themselves and watching from a distance. How you react to situations, what you say, how you say it, what you do…all these things impact those around you. Each one of us have a meaningful mission in life. Be yourself and let God’s mighty hand work within you. Be your unique you. There is no other person like you. There is no other person who can do the special mission God has just for you. Reach out and know your maker. He will guide you, help you and lead you on the path only you can take.

Be strong and press on. God’s plans and ways are higher than we can ever imagine. Everything you have gone through will not go to waste. Your testimony of God’s goodness, favor, restoration and healing power just might be the very thing that touches someone’s life and lead them to the one and only true God. As it is written in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Don’t give up now, you are closer to your breakthrough than you think. The smallest acts of kindness can make a huge impact. YOU ARE SPECIAL AND YOUR LIFE MATTERS!

What’s Love Got To Do With It

Have you ever noticed how much we are bombarded with commercials showing what the world thinks about love? Buy this product and she’ll love you. Or buy that product and she’ll love you. The world likes to portray love as you do this and they’ll do that. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. This isn’t love!

At one point in life or another, most of us have tried to “buy” love or looked for love in all the wrong places. We get excited when we meet someone and we’ll do anything to show them we care. But then slowly it begins to fade and the deep void within begins to grow bigger until you realize something is missing. Now, I’m not saying that doing or buying nice things is bad. What I’m saying is that if you had a void before love and you still have a void when you are in love then there is something deeper going on and no matter how many gifts you purchase; none of them will be fulfilling.

Most people think that if they find a mate, life will be perfect. Or they think, if only I had more money, I would feel happier. Nothing could be further from the truth. For we can not expect someone or something to make us happy. If we are unhappy with ourselves, then how could they possibly make us happy. It just isn’t possible and we are setting them and ourselves up for failure.

Let’s take a cat or dog, for an example. Say you have been gone all day long. You open the door to find that loving pet excited to see you. Whether they are jumping up and down or jumping into your lap, they trusted you to come home and they are excited to show you how much they love and missed you. It is completely unconditional. They are just happy to see you, without getting anything in return.

Well, that is how God loves us. We can’t earn God’s love nor do we deserve it. He just simply loves us! It is unconditional. (Ephesians 3:14-19)  He doesn’t care if we are short, tall, black, white, brown, overweight, skinny or have pimples. He loves us RIGHT NOW, NO MATTER WHAT!

We can’t truly love until we feel loved ourselves. We need to learn that God loves us. We need to feel that God loves us. We have to have a deep knowing that we are loved and it doesn’t matter what we say or do! Otherwise, we are just spinning our wheels getting nowhere because no one else could possibly fill the void but God!

God Loves You 2

When we start experiencing this type of love, then and only then, can we possibly begin showing love for others. This kind of love doesn’t depend on if the person deserves our love or not, nor does it depend on what gifts they will give us. We simply realize that God loves us and He loves them too. When you start loving this way, nothing and I do mean nothing can take the place of it. THIS IS TRUE LOVE!

You are a one-of-a-kind person. God made you and sent His Amazing Son to die for you. No one is like you. So why don’t you start seeing just how special you truly are and love yourself as God loves you. Once you do, you’ll begin to experience the most incredible, amazing, loving relationships that you desperately crave! And the best part is you won’t have to go looking for it. God will bring it to you at the right place, at the right time, and at the perfect moment! It will be simply PERFECT!

Mirror Reflection

Mirror ReflectionHave you ever wondered why you are made with the personality and looks that you have? I think we all do from time to time; and worse, in today’s society, we tend to want to look like someone else such as an actor, actress, model, singer, or your next door neighbor. It’s always easy to compare ourselves only to come up with a list of things we would like to change. Whether it’s losing weight, smaller noses, better features, smaller waist, muscular, etc, etc, etc. and even if we were able to change those things, we still wouldn’t be satisfied as we can easily find something else we don’t like about ourselves.

But, guess what? I have great news for you today!

Instead of thinking about the things you would like to change, see yourself as a MASTERPIECE! God made you exactly the way you are and when you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, something amazing happened…the Holy Spirit came to live within you. So, when God looks upon you, He doesn’t see what you see; He sees you as perfect in His image and in His sight.

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female, He created them.”
Psalm 139:13-16: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

Boy, doesn’t that change your perspective a lot? See, when we start thinking in this manner, our lives quickly change. We aren’t striving to be different or unique because we already are!

Mirror Reflection 2

 

It’s okay if you feel you’d like to change something about yourself. Just pray about it and release it. If God feels the change is necessary then the Holy Spirit will guide you to make those changes when the time is right. Just don’t fret over it. Instead, enjoy your life and look in the mirror knowing that you are BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE, and A MASTERPIECE!

God loves you this very moment and thinks you are WONDERFUL! Since God sees Jesus when He sees us; He is completely satisfied with us. We have His favor, His love, and His miraculous solutions chasing us down. There is absolutely nothing we need to do except see ourselves as God sees us. He made us, He knows us, and He loves us. There is nothing missing, nothing broken and nothing lacking! So, look in the mirror today and praise God for who you are.

Unity & Love

divided-kingdom_ropeWith so many denominations, so many do’s and don’ts, and so many that believe you must wear this or that…it is important to understand the Bible and forego man-made legalism.

Now I know this is a touchy topic, however legalism has become rampant in today’s churches and is turning away those who need Jesus the most. We are to love our brothers and sisters in Christ, not argue and fight with one another because you do this or I do that.

Mark 3:24 “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand.”

For all of us who love Christ, believe that the Bible is the final Word, and that Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly; than it is of the utmost importance for each of us to be the salt and light of this world. It’s not about what you wear, what you eat, when you pray, what you pray…it is about a deep-loving relationship with our Heavenly Father and accepting Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice to give us the opportunity of being grafted into His amazing love.

We may agree to disagree on some things, but the fundamental root of all Christianity is what’s most important…JESUS! Don’t let the pettiness of man-made legalism hinder people the chance of coming to Christ. God is able to modify anything about a person that HE deems necessary. Let those around you see love and not gossip, truth and not legalism, a helping hand and not a beating down. God is love and for all of us who want to make a difference in these last days, let that LOVE shine through all that you do and welcome those that look different or do different things than you.

This week I’m sharing a funny and remarkable teaching from New Beginnings Church in Texas. Pastor Larry does a fantastic job discussing this very topic and it gives me great pleasure to share it with you. Let Pastor Larry’s sermon enlighten, bolden, and give you the tools you need in order to shine brightly this season. Don’t let church legalism stand in your way any longer. Become who you need to be and become God’s great warrior, loving all those whom you come in contact with. The sermon can be found at https://larryhuchministries.com/archive. It is the Sunday First Service March 5, 2017 Service

Make a difference today and let your love shine!

You’re Amazing

With a new year upon us, many have vowed their New Year’s resolutions. They want to workout more, eat healthier, lose weight, quit an addiction and just become a better person than they are now. And with most of us, those are great things to accomplish yet many fail within a very short period of time.

Let this year be different. Don’t make your “to do” lists only to begin feeling overwhelmed and frustrated because you ate a donut. See yourself differently this year and place God first in your life. Let Him help you make whatever changes He feels is in your best interests.

specialYou are very special to God. He sees you as worthy through the blood of the lamb. You are a winner. You are amazing and beautiful. You are unique and special. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) You are the apple of His eye. (Psalm 17:8) You are His treasured possession. (Deut. 7:6)

It’s time to stop comparing yourself to others or looking in the mirror wishing this or that was different. It’s time for you to see yourself through God’s eyes. You are His walking masterpiece, a rare find that is filled with His amazing light and love. There is nothing you can’t do as you keep your eyes upon the Lord. He doesn’t want you feeling defeated, He wants you soaring like an eagle with your talents He gave you.

Don’t let another year go by without seeing His love for you. Let go of your past pain, hurt, anger, frustration, rejection and suffering. Let go of all the things you’d like to change about yourself. You are wonderfully made and there’s noone like you. You have special gifts that God has placed inside of you. He wants to burst forth those gifts and see you excel like never before.

God can and will restore all of those things that have been lost and change whatever needs to change. (Joel 2:25) Let this year be your amazing turnaround. Let this year be filled with lots of light and love. Give Him your cares and worries. Don’t let one more day hold you down with defeat or self-worthlessness. You are an amazing person. So be bold, confident, brave, and free!

Reflect on His love for you and everything else will turn out alright. You’re loved beyond your wildest imagination and there’s nothing too difficult for your Heavenly Father. He is right there with you in the midst of any battle or storm. Reach out and see how beautiful you truly are! It’s time to shine and let your amazing gifts burst forth! May this year be your year of transformation and restoration.  You will accomplish more in a day than you thought possible.

Receive it! Believe it! And walk in it!

Let this year be the year you shine like fireworks in the night sky. (Philippians 2:15)

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 wherever He leads me.

4 Steps To Winning Your Battle

surprise-fiery darts1 Peter 4:12-13 “12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation.”

James 1:2-8 “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

First things first. The very first word in Peter’s passage says “Beloved”. That means you are loved, accepted and forgiven right now in the midst of your trial, your difficulty, your sickness, your pain, your loss, and your lack. Nothing could be more rewarding than knowing you’re loved. Peter (who penned this passage) had denied Jesus 3 times. But even denying Jesus didn’t keep God’s love from Peter. Peter became a very influential, powerful, loving and healing man in the name of Jesus. People didn’t wait for Peter to pray over them or anoint them with oil…they only needed to get into Peter’s shadow and they were healed. That’s the power of God’s love. Being His “beloved” is more powerful than you can imagine. Embrace His love!

God doesn’t bring bad things into our lives. No, satan does. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. God doesn’t want anyone going through difficult times or even going to hell. It’s just the opposite. He died for you, he conquered death for you, he conquered the devil for you. He loves you unconditionally. However, He gives you a choice. He made the way, he made the train to heaven but you have to get on board. How would you feel if someone only loved you because you forced it upon them? How would you like it if they only loved you because of manipulation? Wouldn’t you prefer to have them love you because they simply love you? God is like that…he simply loves you no matter if you love him or not. He just loves you and he wants you to make the choice. He doesn’t want to make or force you to love him. He doesn’t want slaves. He wants us to freely love him just as we are freely able to go to heaven. He loves us so much that He gives us a choice. Now that’s genuine love.

When you are going through a difficult time, it’s easy to be confused, have a pity party, be negative, continuously complain or moan about your circumstance. But you’ll quickly realize that the only people who will want to hang out with you are the other complainers. It’s like the blind leading the blind. It’s a no win situation. You remain in a “victim” mentality. When you’re constantly saying how hard life is, you put the focus on your problems. Let’s change the mindset. Think of Jesus’ life. He chose to die for us. His sweat turned to blood because he had a difficult task ahead of Him. However, He loved us so much that He was willing to lay down His life for us. So the best thing we can do is realize that His love is more than enough to see us through.

Love 1Think of it this way…when you first fell in love with someone, you were intoxicated by that love. You wanted to be with this person all the time. You wanted to have fun and hang out as much as possible with them. The love made you high and nothing else seemed to matter. You still had bills to pay but they didn’t bother you. You would still want to be with this person every chance you had.

That’s the love God wants you to experience with him while you’re going through the trial. He doesn’t love you any less because of the trial. He didn’t take His blessings away. He didn’t want something bad to happen to you. It’s not a sign that God’s hand has been removed from your life. No…we have to turn it around that God loves us and he is in the middle of the storm with us. He will turn it all around for his purpose and for our good. He brings the turnaround from darkness to light, poverty to abundance, evil to good, sickness to healing ~ God is a God of turnaround. And most importantly…GOD HAS THE FINAL WORD in every situation and He will turn it around because He loves you too much.

Secondly, don’t be surprised when you experience fiery trials. Don’t be surprised when people lie about you, someone lets you down, sickness or addictions hit you, poverty strikes your household, or you find yourself in numerous battles and struggles all at once. Don’t be surprised when the devil tries to hit you or your family from every angle. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. He will do everything in his power to make you give up. The best way to take the devil’s power away from him is by not being surprised. God told us that we would have trials and tribulations in this world but take courage because He already overcame the world. The more you stand in faith, the more satan will attack. Steal the fiery darts sting by not being surprised when bad things happen in your life. Just know that you know somehow, someway God already has the answer.

God loves you too much and promises it will all turnaround for your good. Take away satan’s element of surprise and you will prevail. Don’t worry about where he came into your life because he would attack you no matter what. When something difficult comes upon you turn it around immediately. Say wow it’s about time you came, I’ve been waiting for you. I’m prepared for you. I will remain encouraged and be in good cheer. Tell satan thank you for coming against me because Jesus shows up in a mighty way when you attack me. Come quickly Jesus for I’m being attacked.

joyThirdly, count it all joy as soon as you see it coming, when it comes, while you’re going through it, and when you overcome it. Be happy and joyful in the midst of it all. Count it all joy. Worship and praise the Lord before, during and after. Be free in the midst of it.

God won’t be late and even if he is…God created time so he can change that too. You might think he needs to come right now because your bill needs to be paid or you’ll lose your home…but even if God is late in your mind and you lose your home, He can turn it around and give you something more amazing to replace it. He promises that you will not lack anything!

Rejoice when you can’t see a way or when you can’t figure it out. Rejoice in sickness, difficult, trials, hardships because when you remember that you’re not under fire, your faith is and Jesus already won; it shifts your mind to glorifying God and not your problems. When you can stand in the middle of your battle, believing in God and having faith that God will shift things around…satan is going to try to rob it from you because your faith glorifies God. Hold onto your faith. Don’t stop believing. Rejoice that God loves you, the answer is coming, and your faith will win.

Fourthly, James 1:5 mentions that if you lack wisdom, ask of God and he will supply it liberally. However, don’t look for the solutions first. We always look for solutions first, it’s our human nature. However, God’s ways are higher than ours! INSTEAD…we must first know we are loved, then we aren’t to be surprised by the trial, then we are to count it all joy and rejoice, then and only then ask for wisdom. Don’t let the situation move you. Instead move the opposite direction. Give more, praise more, rejoice more, spread the Gospel more, and love more. There is a fighter and champion in every single one of us. Fight the real battle of faith.

Once your heart is celebrating, rejoicing, and counting it all joy…then the answers will come. Joy in the Lord gives you strength. As soon as you are filled with joy, praise and worship; God can then fill your head with the right answers. If He doesn’t wait until you’re filled with joy…He knows that it’s too easy for us to doubt or become double-minded. See, when you make up your mind that no matter what you will stand on His word, you can easily detect incorrect thoughts. You can easily take them captive and reject anything that doesn’t line up with the Word of God. You will know that God will perform His word and promises. With the right mental stability, you will be able to stand on faith without wavering and you will receive it because you will be able to remain focused on how big God is and not how big the problem seems to be.

suddenly-Breakthrough

So as you find yourself facing difficult situations, difficult people or lack in any area of your life…remember God’s 4 Key turnaround formula:

  1. Know God loves you very much
  2. Don’t be surprised
  3. Count it all joy and Rejoice
  4. Ask for wisdom

I pray that you will embrace His truth and see your breakthrough suddenly! Your best days are just ahead! Don’t give up ~ Praise Up!

Fear Be Gone

Don't be afraidWhen you look around these days, everything seems to be going crazy. Terror in various places, countries on the brink of collapse, wars and rumor of wars, demonstrations, health epidemics, fires raging, volcanoes; just to name a few. It is very easy to become fearful or begin to wonder what is going to happen to you or your family.

Well…I have GREAT NEWS for you today!

YOU ARE PROTECTED BY ALMIGHTY GOD!

 “Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go.” (Psalm 91:10-11)

When you feel overwhelmed, just claim this truth. When you feel fear creeping in, tell it to go for it has no place in your life. God has made it a point to protect you. There is absolutely no weapon that can be formed against you that God won’t handle on your behalf. God absolutely loves you and will do everything to protect you. Whether that is in your finances, your family, your business, your comings and goings…whatever “it” is that is trying to attack you…YOU ARE PROTECTED!

But does God stop there? NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Fill our barns with great harvest, fill our fields with huge flocks; Protect us from invasion and exile – eliminate the crime in our streets.” (Psalm 144:13-14)

See, our God is so loving that He doesn’t just want to protect you from any evil…He wants to eliminate the crime and see you prosper in every area of your life. He wants you to be so blessed that you can’t help but be a blessing to someone else. He wants you blessed in the field, blessed in the city, blessed in your finances, blessed in your business, blessed in your family, blessed in your health…blessed…blessed…blessed!God is with you (2014_03_10 01_21_18 UTC)

So the next time you have a weak moment of doubt or uncertainty, claim God’s amazing truth. There is absolutely nothing that can happen to you for God is right there with you, every step of the way. He will never fail you and He will always know the best way to provide whatever “it” is you need; even before you know yourself. For He knows the end from the beginning.

SO WALK BOLDLY TODAY AND

PRAISE HIS MIGHTY NAME!

GOD IS BIG ENOUGH TO HANDLE ANYTHING THROWN YOUR WAY!

No Limitations

TrustOver the past few weeks, we have learned how to let go and renew our minds. It has been important to re-emphasize how God sees us and how we should see ourselves. The Bible is very specific in showing us that God meets us right where we are; in the midst of our battles, our sins and seeks those who are in need of Him.

Today, we are taking it one step further. With the holidays fast approaching, we tend to get quite busy this time of year. It is a time where many tend to see only problems, lack and inabilities to make things better. We tend to think that we can’t, we don’t have enough skill or money, we can’t make a difference or things are never going to change.

However, we miss the key point. WE SERVE A HUGE GOD! Our God created the universe from darkness. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, all caring and a Master Physician to boot. So what in the world do we have to worry about?

There is absolutely nothing we can do to deserve God’s love. He loved us before we were even born. He created us in the womb. He knew everything that we would face in this world and already provided the answers before they even happened. He knows what will happen today, tomorrow and in the future. So, let go of all the things that are holding you back. Let go of anything that no longer serves you. God knows what you need, when you need it and how to get it to you! Trust and believe in Him. He truly has you covered! Period! There are no “if’s”, “ands”, or “buts” about it!

I don’t know about you but I want 2016 to be the most AMAZING YEAR that I ever could encounter. And, in order to do that, we need to be prepared and in the right mindset…

THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO LIMITATIONS WITH GOD!

Butterfly transformation

HE IS ALL WE NEED! See Him for who He is and know that He will bring the most wonderful year to you! There is absolutely nothing impossible to Him so quit stressing and learn to be FREE in God’s loving hands! He is the potter and will mold your life into something more incredible than you ever dreamed.

So, what are you waiting for?

Let go and allow GOD TO BE GOD!

Things Will Change

Many times in life, we feel like we are going nowhere. We’re at a standstill and nothing seems to be happening.  Unsure of any direction and simply put, hope begins to fade. In times like these, we need to be reminded that the barrenness we feel is only temporary and God’s answers will break through.

We are reminded of this very thing, in Genesis. God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. Yet, Abraham did not know the “when”, he just knew that God made him a promise.

Now, during the course of Abraham’s story, you begin to realize that a lot of time passed by with nothing happening. You could easily say that Abraham found himself on a long, rocky road of barrenness. He had no clue of the “how” and “when” this promise was supposed to happen. In fact, so many years went by, we see Abraham and Sarah deciding to take matters into their own hands. Unfortunately, we also see that unnecessary strife was the outcome of their decision. However, even though they made a mistake, God still came through for them. The most amazing part was that Abraham and Sarah were far beyond child-rearing days and yet, Sarah gave birth to a child. Just like God said would happen.

See, it doesn’t matter how long or how rocky our barrenness is. What matters is God has given us THOUSANDS of promises throughout scripture. He knows exactly what we are going through and how to resolve the issues we face. God knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10) and certainly doesn’t need our help along the way. He knows the answer and the perfect timing to make it all happen.

So, when you find yourself on that long rocky road, praying, waiting, and crying out for something to happen; remind yourself of God’s promises. Because even if you lose hope, hope remains. Even if you feel like you are losing faith, a mustard seed of faith will do. (Matthew 17:20)

I don’t know about you but I love surprises. And, GOD IS FULL OF SURPRISES! In His perfect timing, He will transform your barrenness into something absolutely amazing!

So, HOLD ON! God loves you way too much to leave you where you are.

Everyday is a new day and something AWESOME could happen to you in a blink of an eye!

God Loves You

God has really placed on my heart to share my story again, as most people don’t know. As hard as it is, I know the importance of what I’m about to discuss and we are all at a very critical point in life. Many of you have been fighting and wrestling with your own self-worth. In doing so, you tend to look back over the course of the years and see all the pain, the loss, and the suffering but not your true worth. Let me explain…

As a child, I was sexually abused. It led me to feel worthless and unloved. For so many years, I wrestled with the pain and suffering in a very quiet, lonely manner. In protection of my family, no one was aware of the situation. So I continued to deeply hurt all by myself, weeping silently while the shame and guilt consumed me.

For years afterwards, I felt like I didn’t deserve happiness. So, I dated all the wrong guys, lived well below my talents, lived rebelliously; and quite frankly, just never believed that I could be someone lovable or better than what I was living. Needless to say, I lived a very self-defeating lifestyle and learned how to push away others when they showed me what real love was. I simply couldn’t understand why they cared about me. I was broken. I allowed people to hurt me and, in turn, I hurt others as well. Until God called me, showed me how much he loved me and I learned what I’m telling you today!

For those of you who have been hurt, abused, shamed or felt neglected and lost…I HAVE GREAT NEWS!

YOU HAVE AN INCREDIBLE WORTH TO GOD AND YOU DESERVE HIS BEST!

Throughout the Bible, God used murderers, prostitutes and very evil men to show His amazing glory. So, no matter what has happened to you in life, no matter what people have said about you, no matter what you think of yourself…God sees someone beautiful and blessed.

Today…I ask you to release all the pain, hurt, anger, frustration and suffering of the past years and look forward to your amazing future that God has for you. (Philippians 3:13-14) Ask Him to restore all that you have lost. (Joel 2:25) Ask Him to fill you with His incredible love. (Ephesians 3:19)

You are one-of-a-kind. So, be brave and bold; walking out in faith to the most amazing journey of your life. With God, all things are possible (Mark 10:27). So, let go and be truly free!

His amazing grace is upon you, He loves you and this is going to be the most amazing time ever in your life!

Believe it and Receive it! It is your time to shine!

Give Up Perfectionism

perfect-erasersWhether you are an employee who wishes to do a good job for your employer, a housewife who takes care of the kids and household, or a student who tries to study really hard for those good grades…everyone wants to be loved and do a good job. They want to be recognized for their hard work and dedication. There’s nothing wrong with striving to do a good job BUT what happens when all that striving bogs you down and you end up making mistakes?

That’s when you can become guilt-ridden, frustrated and upset…which just increases stress and worry. Then the stress and worry can become illness which in turn begins a cycle of defeat. And on and on and on.

It is so important to realize that none of us are perfect! Everyone has things about themselves that they would like to change. Nobody has it all together, no matter how hard they try. If you constantly strive for perfection, you will end up worse off than if you would had just taken a step back, breathe and then move forward. We all want to do the best job we can, in all situations. However, the stress and worry that’s caused by perfectionism is not healthy and will create such confusion in your life, you’ll begin a downward spiral that is quite difficult to overcome.

“But God is not a God of confusion but of peace.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)

imperfectpersonperfectgod

Stop beating yourself up! Stop holding onto your mistakes or failures AND…Let it go. You can not control what happens from those mistakes. However, you can release the mistakes, apologize for the mistakes and let the spirit who lives within you control the outcome. God has given us a fresh start everyday and he still has an amazing plan for your life. Don’t miss out on His goodness because you keep trying to control everything by being perfect. Perfection fails but God does not.

“And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them all.” (Matthew 15:30) 

So today, let go of your failures and pain. Let go of your stress and worry. Let go of your burdens. Lay it all at Jesus’ feet and rest in the one and only perfection…Jesus! He loves you right now. He wants to heal you so you can experience the abundant life He has in store for you. Let it all go and see the amazing things He will do!

Broken Yokes

ProblemsWhen you think of bondage, what comes to mind? Maybe guilt, condemnation, poverty, sickness and disease, shame, temptations or addictions. There are many things that can be considered bondage. You might be fighting negative thoughts. You might be fighting depression. You might be fighting to pay your bills. Anything that comes against you where you are not living a full and peaceful life would be considered bondage.

While a majority of Americans are celebrating the 4th of July this weekend, we celebrate our heroes, our military, and our founding fathers. All who have blessed America with their amazing abilities in order to give us freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from oppression, liberty, and opportunity.

However, there is one person who has given us so much more than that. There is one person who laid down his life for us so that we could be free from every yoke, every bondage, and every sickness.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” ~ Galatians 5:1

Through Jesus’ finished work at the cross, He freely gave us peace, love, forgiveness, health, finances, and all the wonderful things that come from our Heavenly Father. So just as important as it is to remember the amazing freedom that we have as a society and for all those who have fought and died for that freedom; it is as important not to forget the amazing sacrifice Jesus did for each of us individually. It is His ultimate sacrifice that makes it all possible.

For who the son sets free is free indeed! ~ John 8:36

Faith is the Victory

So as people from all walks of life celebrate this weekend, may we thank all who have stood strong in the midst of adversity and thank our Lord Jesus Christ for making it all possible.

Today and every day, you can walk in Jesus’ amazing finished work and enjoy peace, love, prosperity, restoration, forgiveness, vitality, and more. It is His grace and His finished work that gives you PURE FREEDOM!

For each celebration and firework proves that we as a nation still stand strong, we are still one nation under God, and through His grace and power…we shall all remain free in the Family of God! Praise the Lord for He is worthy!

One Heartbeat Away

iStock_000015062038XSmall_DisappointmentValley-sjhIf anyone has been paying attention to the news lately, it has been down right discouraging. The world is plunging into decay and immorality. From all the terror, America’s fast decline, lies and deceit, sexual exploits; it makes you truly wonder what the heck is going on and it certainly makes you scratch your head a bit. Have you found yourself wondering where is God in it all? Is there a purpose that we simply don’t understand? Why is all of this happening?

Well, the more I asked questions and searched for answers…the more I found myself drawn to study prophecies. For over the past few years, I had already read up on everything I could regarding the four blood moons, Israel’s feasts, and the like. With the last one happening in September 2015, along with the Jewish feast and Elul 29, I already knew there is significance to all I’ve seen. After requiring God’s guidance, He led me on an incredible journey. And I don’t mean just skimming the surface of the Bible or Biblical commentaries…I mean, deep and undeniable studies. The more I studied, the more I dove in. There have only been a few times this has ever happened to me where I would lock myself in a room for days and study till I just couldn’t read another word. It was undeniably God’ s hand of guidance and provision. There was something He was trying to get me to see and pass along to others who are willing to listen.

Events seem to be happening quickly and most people are oblivious to it all. Time seems to be passing by and most people are looking at their own lives, stuck on electronics that they think brings them joy; only to be afraid of missing out on something or being left out of the next big thing. However, those that have ears to hear and those that hear be saved! (Mark 4:23-24)

The absolute truth is that most people are missing out on something more important than a text message or a selfie. Something that is coming over the horizon like a sunrise but no one takes a minute to appreciate the sunrise nor the creator of that sunrise.

No matter where we grew up or went to school, no matter what we did in our life before Christ, no matter what we currently do for a profession, no matter where or when we were chosen to follow Christ…we all have a purpose in life. We are all called to be a watchman on the wall. (Ezekiel 33:6) We are all called to be the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14) So, it is of the utmost importance for all those who believe in Christ to understand the times which we live in. It is important for all of us to be strong in His word, be loving to those around us, and reach out with the revelation of knowledge to save all those who are lost before it’s too late.

Within less than a blink of an eye, everything we know and love could vanish. Houses, cars, money, gold, silver, and everything else people strive for will not mean a thing when it happens. What God lead me to discover shocked me to my very core. Nothing else seemed to matter much after it. I couldn’t wait to sit down to write this post because everything is explained in such a way that your soul is moved. You finally “get it” and “the purpose” and “the why”.

Being a watchman on the wall is never easy nor is it ever received very well. But as God says so eloquently in the Bible:

Ezekiel 33:6But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.

I don’t typically endorse products on this website. However, it is my duty to warn anyone who is willing to hear. I urge you all to read “The Harbinger” from Jonathan Cahn. It is definitely a book written for our time and explains a lot of what has happened to America, what to expect next, and God’s ultimate purpose. Whether you live in America or around the world, the ending of this book will take your breath away and you’ll understand why we all have been called for a time such as this. I urge you to get a hold of this NOW. Don’t wait! We are simply one heartbeat away and you’ll want to share it with everyone you love!

“Watch, I say lest He comes suddenly and unexpectedly and find you asleep. And what I say to you, I say to everyone: Watch (give strict attention, be cautious, active, and alert)!” (Mark 13:36-37)

Do not be afraid as God promises to protect his beloved. If you have not given your life to Christ, I urge you to do so as none of us are promised tomorrow. It’s the greatest gift ever to mankind…to spend eternity with Almighty God where there is no pain, no suffering, no sorrow. Your ultimate destination is a choice. What shall you choose?

Look Around

WildernessCan you imagine the splendor that surrounds you everyday? The stars. The mountains. The oceans and rivers. The magnitude of plants and animals. Millions of species that we don’t even know the names of. It is absolutely breathtaking when you stop to think about it. But what about people? There are billions of people in this world and most of them go about their day, just hoping to get by. They settle for much less and hope for the rest.

Well, did you know that the Bible tells us that God knew and approved of you before you were even born? (Jeremiah 1:5) He had a specific plan created just for you. There is no one like you. There is no one with the special talents God gave you. No one has the same plan. You were magnificently designed by the Creator of the Universe. How AWESOME is that?

Let that sink in for a moment. No matter where you come from. No matter who your parents are. No matter what neighborhood you live in. No matter where you go to school. No matter what you have encountered so far in your life…none of it determines your destiny. God has the most incredible future in store for you. If you need a job, God wants you to have a better job with many more benefits than you can imagine. If you need a place to live, God doesn’t want just a roof over your head, He wants the best home for you that you can be proud of. If your finances have dried up, God doesn’t just want you to get by…He wants you to have more than enough so you can be a blessing to others. If you need healing, God doesn’t just want you to be healed in a specific area…He wants you completely whole and well! That’s the incredible God we serve!

No matter what we can think or imagine…God wants us to have even more. No matter what we face…God already knew that we would face it and He already has the solution. God knows every hair on your head and you God is Taking Care of Youare more valuable to Him than a whole flock of sparrows. There’s no need to be afraid or worried! (Luke 12:7)

So, the next time you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see…remind yourself of how special and beautiful you really are. You are a talented, creative, and loving person with a very special purpose.

His ways are higher than ours! His creativity surpasses anything we could think! His solutions are far beyond our imagination! Dream BIG and He dreams BIGGER! Ask for much and He gives more! That was, is, and forever will be our Heavenly Father! Now go out and be everything that God wants you to be. It will be far greater than anything you can imagine because we serve an amazing God who created the entire universe.

Celebrating Jesus

He is Risen 2

John 10:10: “…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”

What a tremendous time to be alive with prophecies being fulfilled every where you look. Whether you watch the news or read it on the internet…it’s like Psalm 83, Daniel, and Revelation coming alive on your screen. All of it just as God predicted. For He knows the end from the beginning. (Isaiah 46:10)

God gave us His all. Jesus gave us His all. The same power that resurrected Jesus from the dead is alive within you. The Holy Spirit has filled you from the moment you accepted Christ. REJOICE! It is His power, His love, His mercy, His provision, His healing, His all, that empowers us to be more than conquerors. So rejoice for it’s a great day to be alive! Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly no matter what we see surrounding us.

Come boldly to the throne with your prayers and supplications. There is nothing impossible to those who believe. So celebrate your freedom in Christ. Celebrate His amazing sacrifices that allow us a life full of peace, joy, love, and happiness. Christ did it all and that’s all we will ever need.

Jesus is alive and well today, sitting at the right hand of the Father. He is interceding for us, every time we seek Him. Every time we pray and ask.

He is worthy to be praised. Celebrate His truth. Celebrate His power. Celebrate His goodness and mercy. Celebrate our Lord and Savior for He is worthy to be praised. Look forward to God’s amazing truth to come alive within you; helping you fulfill the amazing destiny He made just for you at such a time as this.

Love God (2014_03_10 01_21_18 UTC)

I decree and declare that Jesus comes alive to you today. Filling you with His truth, wisdom, and knowledge. That you see Jesus in every area of your life. He has so much more for you. Let God be first place in your life and allow Him to come alive in ways you’ve never experienced. Because with Jesus, all your dreams will come true and you will have more than enough to spare and share. Praise the Lord. Amen!

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

IT TRULY IS AN AMAZING TIME IN HISTORY!

LOOK UP FOR OUR TIME DRAWS NEAR!

What’s Love Got To Do With It

As Valentine’s Day comes around, we are bombarded with commercials showing what the world thinks about love. Buy this product and she’ll love you. Or buy that product and she’ll love you. Whether you are single, dating, or married, Valentine’s Day can be overwhelming. Will you get them flowers, candy, teddy bears, or a ring. The world likes to portray love as do this and they’ll do that. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. This isn’t love!

At one point in life or another, most of us have tried to “buy” love or looked for love in all the wrong places. We get excited when we meet someone and we’ll do anything to show them we care. But then slowly it begins to fade and the deep void within begins to grow bigger and you realize that you really aren’t in love. Now, I’m not saying doing or buying nice things is bad. What I’m saying is that if you had a void before love and you still have a void when you are in love then there is something deeper going on and no matter how many gifts you purchase; none of them will be fulfilling.

Most people think that if they find a mate, life will be perfect. Or they think, if only I had more money, I would feel happier. Nothing could be further from the truth. For we can not expect someone or something to make us happy. If we are unhappy with ourselves, then how could they possibly make us happy. It just isn’t possible and we are setting them and ourselves up for failure.

Let’s take a cat or dog, for an example. Say you have been gone all day long. You open the door to find that loving pet excited to see you. Whether they are jumping up and down or jumping into your lap, they trusted you to come home and they are excited to show you how much they love and missed you. It is completely unconditional. They are just happy to see you, without getting anything in return.

Well, that is how God loves us. We can’t earn God’s love nor do we deserve it. He just simply loves us! It is unconditional. (Ephesians 3:14-19)  He doesn’t care if we are short, tall, black, white, brown, overweight, skinny or have pimples. He loves us RIGHT NOW, NO MATTER WHAT!

We can’t truly love until we feel loved ourselves. We need to learn that God loves us. We need to feel that God loves us. We have to have a deep knowing that we are loved and it doesn’t matter what we say or do! Otherwise, we are just spinning our wheels getting no where because no one else could possible fill the void but God!

God Loves You 2

When we start experiencing this type of love, then and only then, can we possibly begin showing love for others. This kind of love doesn’t depend on if the person deserves our love or not, nor does it depend on what gifts they will give us on Valentine’s Day. We simply realize that God loves us and He loves them too. When you start loving this way, nothing and I do mean nothing can take the place of it. THIS IS TRUE LOVE!

You are a one-of-a-kind person. God made you and sent His Amazing Son to die for you. No one is like you. So why don’t you start seeing just how special you truly are and that God loves you no matter what. Once you do, you’ll begin to experience the most incredible, amazing, loving relationships that you desperately crave! And the best part is you won’t have to go looking for it. God will bring it to you at the right place, at the right time, and at the perfect moment! It will be simply PERFECT!

Valentine's Day

The Twinkling Star

The Hustle and Bustle

As Christmas comes closer with each passing day
Stop the shopping madness; see the season’s precious way
With all of its glitter and bright displays,
Just stop for a moment and let your heart show the way.

It’s easy to get stressed and begin to fray
Stop for a breather and remember His way
Rushing to and fro and all about
Stop for a moment to remember what it’s about.

It’s not about presents, trees or even mistletoe
It’s time to remember and forget all your woes
For in Matthew and Luke, it explains it all
The birth of our Lord the angels did call.

His name is Jesus and Emmanuel
Meaning God is with us so hear the beautiful bells
For our Lord was born on this amazing day
In a lowly ol’ manger and a very humble way.

For all to see the star was shining bright
So the wise men followed the incredible light
Filled with ecstatic joy and gifts to honor
For the Child was born for the Glory of the Father.

So, when you are spending time with your friends and family
Take a moment of pause from the intense vanity
For when you do, your heart will be overjoyed
For on this wonderful day, God gave us His Baby Boy!

The Wonderful Aromas of Thanksgiving

Ah, 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 wherever He leads me.
