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)

Are You Ready For The Truth?

There are so many Christians, true followers of Christ our Lord and Savior, that feel lost. They have been bombarded with false doctrine and don’t even realize it. They have prayed, fasted and done all they could for their breakthroughs, yet nothing seems to change.

Today’s word is one of warning and truth. It’s being written with love for all those who have suffered greatly and have not seen the miracles they desperately need.

Right now on the world stage, God is bringing truth and light out of the darkness. You’re seeing pastors being arrested for sexual abuse. You’re seeing satanic symbols in church buildings. Sunday mornings have become more of a theater & lighting show than gospel being spoke. You’re hearing of satanic worship that goes beyond any comprehension. And yes, unfortunately we’re hearing that some pastors, actors, singers, politicians and media are a part of it. I can tell you that I’ve been shocked as things are being exposed. Once your eyes are opened, you start picking up all the signs that have been there all along. It’s quite disheartening. Then you start hearing bits and pieces about the clergy response teams and what that truly entails. There is so much we simply haven’t known and now it’s being brought to the center stage. This isn’t an easy word to write because we’ve been deceived for so long and it is imperative that Christians wake up, repent and turn back to the One True God.

For years Christians have been going to church, tithing and asking for prayer only to find themselves broke, busted and disgusted. They believe God’s Word and wholeheartedly have done all the right things they’ve been taught. They’ve gone to church, been faithful in their giving but all they see is deeper debt while the megachurch pastors are living extravagant lifestyles. Something is amiss here when wealthy pastors aren’t willing to even give food to those in need unless they fill out massive paperwork and get the pastor’s authorization. This completely misses the mark.

Does God want us prosperous? Absolutely! There’s nothing wrong with that. However, we are to be prosperous so we can help others. Period! Did Jesus ask for a tithe to heal? Did Jesus ask how much you can pay for a breakthrough? NO! Jesus just wanted to know if you believed in Him and that He could do all that you’ve asked.

I truly believe we are in the beginning stages of home congregations where real believers in Christ will come together, pray together, help one another and truly be there for each other. If one person is having a tough time, then all those in the home group gather to help. That is the real meaning of worship. It’s not a building, it’s not a rock star lifestyle…it’s a love for one another, lending a helping hand while worshiping and giving thanks to the Lord. It’s the people that make a “church” not a building!

God is starting to reveal many things about those in high positions, those in religious settings and the truth that will set us free. It will be our choice to either listen or turn a blind eye to it. There are going to be some very difficult things shown to us that I believe will rock us deeply. Will we be ready for God’s truth? Are we willing to let go of what we think or have been taught in order to follow the real truth.

God’s heart is for all to be saved. Unfortunately there will be many who will not want to let go of their current lifestyle, repent and turn back to the One True God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Will you be willing?

This is a very deep conversation with many more aspects to be revealed as God sheds light on them. I highly recommend listening to the message below. It’s an honest, upfront discussion of what’s really happening in our world today. We don’t need to be afraid. God is in control and He’ll continue protecting, loving and guiding us. However we truly need to be ready for what will be exposed and know the true gospel without all the hype.

It’s happening quickly and seems to be accelerating. For those of us who love the Lord and want to do His will for our lives…we need to be ready to help others understand when it hits the fan. God has had enough and He’s exposing much. People are going to be devastated as they come to realize that those they trusted the most have actually betrayed and done despicable things in order to keep their money & status. It will be hard to swallow and we’re already seeing people run away from the “church”. The hurt and confusion is real. None of this has ever been exposed before and our eyes are being opened. This is world wide so all of us need to ban together, love one another and be ready to love those who start seeing the truth revealed.

Please don’t take our word for it. Pray and do your own research. We are living in very exciting yet disturbing times. God is doing a massive awakening around the world.

With the Christmas season upon us, may we all take time to reflect what Jesus really accomplished with His ministry, death and resurrection. It is because of Him we are called brothers and sisters; children of the Most High God. Be loving this holiday season, pray as a family and give thanks for HIM. He is truly the reason for Christmas and we all have an amazing destiny that is ready to be birthed.

Sending you all many wonderful Christmas blessings. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

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.

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 Through The Pain

There is such a battle raging against God’s people right now. So many of you have been hurt, mistreated, things stolen and just not sure what is going on in your life. Everyone around you haven’t been tested or treated in the way you have. You’ve done everything you know to do but your prayers seem to be going unanswered. Whatever you do…DON’T GIVE UP and DON’T LET GO OF THE LORD!!!

We are in a crucial time and it’s imperative that you hold on. Look at Paul in the Bible (Acts 16:23-26). He was beaten, shackled and thrown into jail. But what did he do? He sang at the midnight hour. But why would he do that in the midst of his pain? Because he knew God was coming at the midnight hour with peace, love, provision, healing, freedom and restoration.

Below you will find a fantastic teaching on this very subject. May it give you new perspective through the midst of your pain. May it give you hope, joy and peace to know your victory is near. Don’t let go of God. Praise Him through the pain and see Him move mightily in your life. You victory is coming if you don’t give up in the 11th hour.

Keep Pushing

God is doing some mighty things in the world right now. However those of us who love the Lord, there seems to be a mighty battle for our minds, body and soul. We feel stagnant, disconnected and lost. Fear is trying to grip us. Disease and pain is attacking our bodies. Friends and family are leaving us. Things just seem to be going no where fast.

But I have a great word for you today. Keep pushing through to the other side.

For all those who feel like they have been living in a “prison” of some sort, do not give up. Now is the time to hold your ground. Renew your mind every time fear tries to take hold. Renew your mind every time something goes haywire. Find a scripture that you can recite all day if you have to…just DO NOT GIVE UP! Hold on and press through.

I’ve personally dealt with many battles in every area of life lately that has really tried putting depression and fear upon me; and trying to read God’s word has even become a major battle. Not that I don’t want to read but I seem to have a block that is keeping me from reading God’s word. This shall pass. However in the mean time, I have searched for “word” nuggets to help me get through the day, to renew my mind and hold steadfast to God’s word. It’s a way to keep my eyes focused and fill my soul while battling in our earthly realm.

The good news is that if you find yourself in some major battles then you are doing something right. It means that your adversary is seeing God’s mighty hand upon your life and he is doing everything he can to stop it. The devil is a liar. Don’t give him the victory. Stay the course, keep believing and hold onto your faith at all costs.

Here are just a few of those “word” nuggets to help you stand and keep pushing through to the other side. Just as Esther did at this time, she prayed and went against all things in the natural to get to the other side. She didn’t feel God. She felt disconnected but was willing to go against everything in the natural to experience God’s supernatural. And boy did God come through to save His people.

We are His people. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then you are a child of the Most High God. You are His beloved and YOU WILL BE AN OVERCOMER!

Enjoy the nuggets below and allow them to renew your mind. Stand your ground, hold on and you will see God’s mighty hand breakthrough into your life.

The Right Motive

Today’s writing comes from a deep compassion for God’s people and to bring light in this dark world. Pastors preaching “give to get” on all the social platforms are putting God’s people in bondage and it has to stop.

There are alot of us who have been seeking God’s truth. We’ve gone through such hardships that we by into giving of our hard earned dollars because we need miracles. We need God’s help so we give to get something from Him. However what we are learning from today’s pastors is false. God is not a roulette machine. We don’t give to get a miracle. Jesus was and still is our miracle. He is the way, the truth and the light. He wants us whole, healed and restored. But not how pastor’s are teaching it.

Have you given till you become so broke that you need an even bigger miracle. Have your hopes been dashed when your miracle wasn’t received. Well you’ve come to the right place today. I’m sharing two amazing videos from Prophetic Drive Time. Both of these videos answered many questions I had asked God and they touched me so deeply that I was bawling like a baby in happy tears. It’s the truth, wisdom and understanding where God can and will bring about REAL CHANGE!

Need answers? Please watch, listen and may God touch you deeply with such amazing accuracy and truth that you will rethink what you’ve learned from today’s pulpits. The truth you know will set you free!

Giving with the Right Motive…

I pray that your eyes are opened today and I applaud you for seeking His truth. He will make a way when there aren’t any seen. May you continue to hold on and believe that through HIM all things are possible.

God’s Outpouring

Today is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it! Things are shifting. God is moving and your breakthrough is coming!

Watch this amazing word from the Prophetic Drive Time. His word is right on the mark and all of us who have been through hell and back lately will now see how awesome and big our God is!

Please disregard any advertisement you may encounter under this posting as the author does not endorse them. Thank you.

What Are You Trusting?

You may not be in an ideal situation right now. You may find yourself fighting many battles and at the brink of giving up. Don’t listen to other people’s opinions or listen to naysayers. Keep listening to God and let the Holy Spirit be your guide.

Now let’s be honest here…God’s guidance may not make sense. It may not look like you’re making any progress. But whatever you do, don’t give up hope and keep heeding God’s warnings. You don’t just want to go with the flow or take an easy way out as it could be leading you to disaster.

Isaiah 55:8-9: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

What are you trusting?

Are you trusting and worshipping in what you think you want God to do in your life and how you want God to help you in your circumstances?  OR  Are you trusting God when He says He will provide, He will heal, He will be there for you even though it doesn’t look like what you had planned and you can’t see or feel His presence in your life right now?

God says you will overcome but He doesn’t always say how that will happen. So what do you have your trust in?

Put your hope in Him and His ways…not in your plan or how you expect God to bring your help. He is in the moment right now to encourage you and direct your path. Keep your courage and hope up. There are things out of your control but your confidence, hope, and courage can remain when God is your focus. Whatever God spoke will happen! God finishes what He starts!

Know that when you are in a transition or in trouble, it’s a good place to be because that’s where God does his deepest transformation. Don’t give up. Push through. Keep praising. Reach out to Him. Your transformation, your help, your change, your healing, your more than enough will happen. Keep your spirit of faith and focus on Him. Keep moving forward and It Will Happen! He is your one and only source!

Cherish Your Mother

Mother’s are very special in God’s eyes and should be honored in all her ways. Whether your mother is with you, across the miles from you, or in heaven…remember them on this day and let them know just how special they truly are.

Matthew 15:4: “For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother…”
Proverbs 31:25-30: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.””

In The Craziest Moment

Early yesterday morning, as we heard a loud crash and ran to see, we quickly realized something was terribly wrong. At first, we thought we were dealing with an intruder as it sounded like a very big crash. What we actually heard was my dad falling when he had blacked out and was unable to cry for help. As my mom rushed to the phone to dial 911, I was holding onto my dad with all my might trying to make sure he didn’t fall any further. As dad became conscious enough to realize something was wrong, being the stubborn man he is, he tried to get up and walk. While begging him to sit down, unexpectedly another blackout occurred and I found myself trying to do everything in my power to hold him up so he didn’t hit the floor. There were no warnings to what we encountered. There were no signs that would have given us a glimpse of what we were about to face.

As the paramedics rushed through the house, they found themselves staring at a very clammy sweaty man who could not comprehend what was happening. The paramedics rushed my dad to the hospital. For the remainder of the day, he was whisked from one end of the hospital to the other having tests being performed to try and figure out the cause of the blackouts.

While dad was being wheeled for another test, mom and I decided to take a break and get some air. As we walked down a hall, I had an overwhelming sense to stop and turn back. Now of course, I’m not in the right mind frame to determine what was happening but when God speaks, I always try to listen. So I asked mom to hold on a second and I turned back. When I did, I noticed a young lady sitting in a waiting room. She was doing everything she could to compose herself. I instantly found myself by her side asking if she needed help. And then that’s when the tears started flowing. She explained that she came to the waiting room to take a minute for herself as they had just lost her grandfather. As mom came to my side, somehow – some way we had the strength to be there for this young lady. We started hugging her and just listening, letting her speak to strangers without judgement. Letting her show all her emotions so that she too could find the strength in helping her family through their difficult time.

It is in moments like these that you have absolutely no clue why this happens. We had heard the code blue. We had instantly prayed for the family and the doctors, yet at the time of hearing the commotion, I found myself being grateful that it wasn’t dad.

But there in a tiny waiting room, we found ourselves caught up in this young lady’s hurt and pain…comforting, loving, and hugging until her strength returned to face all the decisions they were finding themselves unexpectedly having to make the day before Thanksgiving.

A while later, we ran into this young lady’s family as they were being whisked to the funeral hall. The young lady looked up with such grateful eyes and whispered a soft thank you to mom and I. In the middle of their sadness, the young lady had an uncompromising peace found on her face that the other family members did not. She was going to be the rock in the middle of the family’s turmoil. God was using her to bring comfort and peace to the family.

So as you sit down to your Thanksgiving meal, I pray that Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning for you today and I hope that you realize that there is so much to be thankful for. Whether you are with family or you find yourself miles way…be thankful to the Lord for he knows the how, why and when. He will always place us where we are needed the most in sometimes the craziest of moments. But if we will listen and obey, it will always work out for someone’s good. Because in the middle of your chaos, help arrives when you least expect it and in very unexpected ways.

Are You Under Attack?

Unexpected BlessingsEveryone I know, including myself, seems to be going through difficulties in their lives right now. The one thing I’ve really noticed is that it truly doesn’t matter who you are. If you are trying to stand on the right side of things and you are trying to stay in faith…YOU ARE UNDER ATTACK! It could be in your finances, it could be in your emotions, it could be in your relationships, it could be in your health…or worse…it could many areas of your life, all at once.

I think we all could agree that it is a very difficult time for all believers. The more you try to stand, the worse it gets. The more you try to pray, the crazier life gets. Just when you feel like you are starting to make progress, you get hit with a new problem. It’s simply madness! I know…I’m right there with you.

The constant question I hear is “WHY?” Why is this happening? Why can’t I make any progress? Why can’t God do something? Why won’t God help? Why would God allow this to happen? Why? Why? Why?

There’s nothing wrong with asking that question. God already knows exactly how you feel and why you feel that way. It isn’t a surprise to Him. It doesn’t make Him angry for us to question. The way I look at it is that God sees all, knows all, understands all the questions, and He knows that He has the answers already…even when we can’t see them yet.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; …

See…the hardest part for all of us living in these “I want it now” world is waiting on God. We have no idea why something might be happening in our lives, but He does. God knows if He is planning on using your testimony for someone else down the road. And unless you go through some difficulties, how could you possible help them if you haven’t experienced it yourself? He also knows what His plans are for your life and how amazing it’s going to be! But again…the hardest part is for us to wait patiently upon Him and wait for His perfect timing.

Isaiah 40:31 But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

So today, I’m asking all of us to breathe a bit easier as we go through the difficulties. I completely understand that they seem to be getting more intense and more often. Please keep reminding yourself that there is absolutely nothing that can come against you that He doesn’t already have an answer for. Keep your eyes on Him and everything will be alright. Because when He brings you through the difficulties, you will soar to new heights. You will have more than enough. Your pain will subside being replaced with His amazing love, strength, and renewed vitality!

He will bring you through at the perfect time, the perfect way, and with the perfect results! He is GOD OF ALL! There is nothing too hard for Him! He wants you to be successful! He wants you in good health! He wants you to have more than enough! Jesus came to give you life and life more abundantly!

Seeing Things Differently

Mind WhirlingIt is so easy to get caught up with what we see with our natural eyes. You turn on the television or search the web and there’s nothing but chaos, wars, famines, people fleeing their homes, tornadoes, fires, terror, murder, and more. Then you see what’s happening in your own life. Relationships souring, unemployment, overwhelming debt, your bank account is bare, your body aches, and nothing seems to be going right.

When we see with our natural eyes, it can be alarming and quickly turn into depression, fear, and sickness. The most important thing we can do is learn how to see through our spiritual eyes.

“Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness.” (Luke 11:34)

When you start seeing things God’s way, through your spiritual eyes of His power, of His redemption, of His sacrifice, of His protection, of His provision…

  • It won’t matter what your bank account says.
  • It won’t matter what your doctor says.
  • It won’t matter what your family or boss says.
  • It won’t matter what your body says.
  • It won’t matter that you aren’t being treated right.
  • It won’t matter that you’re on the verge of divorce.
  • It won’t matter that you’re on the verge of bankruptcy.

What will matter most is that God’s word is final. If you can learn to have faith and believe in the unseen, then your life can start making dramatic turns for the better.

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Let’s face it…we can’t see God putting the puzzle pieces together. We can’t see God working behind the scenes. We can’t see the person He is about to bring across your path. We must believe and trust in God in all things. Not just some things. Not just in the small ways. But in all things.

Love God (2014_03_10 01_21_18 UTC)

God says it this way…“let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary”. (Psalm 107:2) So, don’t wait any longer. LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!

It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or how your life started out. Quit seeing with your regular eyes and start visioning the incredible life you want to see in your future, through your spiritual eyes! God has the most magnificent plan for your life and you simply can’t out dream God.

He can suddenly take you from broke, busted, and disgusted to having the most amazing life that will absolutely blow your mind! So, what will you start seeing differently? Let your imagination run wild for there is nothing too big or too small for our Lord Jesus Christ!

IT IS FINISHED

Love God (2014_03_10 01_21_18 UTC)When we backslide or we feel like we did something wrong; it never fails, guilt creeps in and we start begging God for forgiveness. Now don’t get me wrong, you may have consequences for your actions. However, once you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, there is absolutely nothing you can do to lose your righteousness because you are saved through Jesus’ righteousness. He didn’t just save you when you do things right. He saved you from all things.

Now, let’s take it a step further. When Christ died on the cross, He became cursed on the tree for us. (Galatians 3:13) When He said “IT IS FINISHED”, everything was done! There was nothing missing and absolutely nothing else needed.

So, what does that mean to you and me, over 2,000 years later…

IT MEANS EVERYTHING! Every curse that comes against you, every addiction that can plague you IS FINISHED. You don’t have to have someone pray over you. You don’t need someone to anoint you with oil, you simply pick up HIS cross daily and claim it towards your life.

  • When that sore throat, cancer, or bodily ailment comes against you…claim that the Lord said it is finished and this sickness has no right in my life.
  • When that addiction has power over you…claim that the Lord said it is finished and I am free.
  • When you’re having difficulties with others…claim that the Lord said it is finished and I have the right to wonderful relationships.
  • When you are lacking funds or something in your life…claim that the Lord said it is finished and you have more than enough to spare and share.

There is absolutely nothing that comes against you that the Lord has not already dealt with. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) Scream at the top of your lungs…IT IS FINISHED!

It may not look like anything is happening. Your reality may be showing something completely opposite. BUT DO NOT let that hold you back. For God’s word never returns void and Jesus reversed all the curses. He broke all bondage. Don’t let it have power over you any longer. IT IS FINISHED! You don’t need victory…Jesus already gave you the victory.

Now start claiming your victories! You are the head and not the tail! You are above and not below! You are more than a conqueror in Christ. You were born to be victorious.

God Keeps Promises

Don’t live in the natural realm anymore. Live in His supernatural. You are royalty! Live like it, speak like it, and expect the unexpected. We serve an all powerful, almighty father who wants to bless you more than you could ever think or ask! So, take up His cross daily and watch His supernatural power come flooding into your life like never before. Whoooooo, Praise God that His burden is light. IT IS FINISHED!

Get Your Groove Back

Into The Lord's handsYou know, it always amazes me how quickly our day can change. You can get up in the morning full of excitement, knowing that something good is going to happen. And then…bam…something goes haywire and all of a sudden you are depressed, angry, and ready to scream at the top of your lungs. But what if there was a way to have a GREAT DAY no matter what comes your way?

Well, I have FANTASTIC NEWS FOR YOU TODAY! There is!

Throughout the Bible, God outlines a lot of curses for those who do not obey His law. These curses have been around for ages and through many generations. Curses of famine, disease, lack, stress, worry, anger, immorality, addictions, and the list goes on and on. But God knew that there was no way that we could obey His laws. They were too perfect. So, Jesus enters the scene.

Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) As soon as Jesus showed up, people were be healed from all types of afflictions. The lame were healed. The blind could see. People were raised from the dead. Jesus set out to heal all who would come to Him and just believe that He was able.

When Jesus was nailed to the cross and said IT IS FINISHED…Every single affliction was conquered. For He nailed them all to the cross! (Colossians 2:14) He single-handedly broke every curse, every affliction, every negative thing that was bound for us. So, THE FANTASTIC NEWS OF THE DAY is that you don’t have to accept anything bad happening in your life. It doesn’t have the authority to stay. Jesus said IT IS FINISHED and IT IS!Second Chance Every Moment

  • Tell that cancer or affliction…IT IS FINISHED and IT MUST GO!
  • Tell that poverty or lack…IT IS FINISHED and IT MUST GO!
  • Tell that unbelief…IT IS FINISHED and IT MUST GO!
  • Tell that stress and worry…IT IS FINISHED and IT MUST GO!
  • Can’t find a job…Tell that unemployment…IT IS FINISHED and IT MUST GO!
  • Tell that curse (whatever it may be)…IT IS FINISHED and IT MUST GO!

Every single day we have a choice. A choice to either accept what is coming against us or believe and stand on Jesus’ finished work. Our reality should be seeing God’s supernatural power in our lives every day. So be bold, brave, and believe. For God gave us the answer…it is JESUS and IT IS FINISHED!

Take a stand today. Say outloud…IT IS FINISHED and GET YOUR GROOVE BACK! God promises that you won’t be disappointed for His word does not return void!

Pray For Those Affected

Philippine Devastation 11.15.13While politics seem to be taking first place on the news lately, people are in utter chaos in the Philippines. Devastating pictures are flying across the television set on a small number of channels. Reporters trying to share the intense emotional pain of those affected, but we have to ask, is anyone listening. With one of the most powerful, worst natural disasters on record, it appears it is not news worthy.

We have many readers from the Philippines and our hearts are utterly heart-broken for these people. The reports that I have watched personally, makes my skin crawl. People are literally fighting for their lives and their families’ survival.

The survivors are in utter desperation. No food, no water, sewage and wreckage everywhere. With unbelievable death numbers and decaying bodies lying in the streets, they have to prepare for potential sickness and disease. It is simply unimaginable and gut-wrenching to think of what these brothers and sisters are going through.

This week, I dedicate this posting to them. May we all take a moment and pray for these wonderful people, who have had their lives ripped apart by this massive storm. I ask that we all join together in prayer asking for help to arrive quickly and that God watches over each one of them; helping them to restore what was lost and fill them with incredible peace in the midst of their chaos. We love you all.
