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!!!

Enough Is Enough

For all those who have come up against tragedy, loss and suffering; yet you remained faithful to our Heavenly Father…it’s time to declare

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

The devil is a liar (John 8:44)! He has created chaos, division, trouble, disease and loss throughout all of our lives. He has made life in general extremely difficult for believers.

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

For all who believe in God, trust in God and have held on (even by a thread), it is our time to see recompense. For everything the devil has stolen, it’s now time for him to pay up! Don’t dwell on these things but think about what has been lost or stolen in your life. Has it been health, opportunities, family, friends, homes, vehicles, or financial means? Well it’s time to claim and declare that the devil must repay 7-fold! Full restoration of everything lost through all the adversity.

Proverbs 6:30-31 “People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold though it costs him all the wealth.”

God wants us restored far greater than ever dreamed and He can use all those ugly unwanted things that have happened to you for your good! Don’t let the devil steal anything more from you. Start declaring that the devil is a liar and demand enough is enough! Say NO MORE to the pain, suffering, sadness, depression and loss! Today is the day to demand the devil to repay everything stolen back to you 7-fold!!!

In other words, apprehend him, seize him and bind him.” Just as a policeman catches a thief by handcuffing him, we are to catch Satan by binding him. Start declaring, “I bind you Satan in the name and power of Jesus!! You are a defeated foe!”

Today is a NEW DAY! Make a conscience choice that TODAY IS YOUR DAY for restoration and recompense. The payback comes from our Heavenly Father and I don’t know about you but I’m declaring a 10-fold return because I’m charging interest!!!

YES Jesus Did It All

Yes, Yes, Yes Jesus did it all. That’s the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS!!! Stop going by feelings or what you are seeing. Walk by faith!!!

This is such a prevalent word today! Watch this getup and go word from Brother Eli. It’s motivating, truthful and it will help you overcome every struggle in life! 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 More Than A Conqueror

What has your wilderness been like? Have you hit every brick wall imaginable? Have you been given a dire health report? Have your funds dried up? Have you lost your home or possessions? Have you lost your job? Have you lost loved ones, friends or family? And let me guess…as you are going through these difficult times, you are constantly hearing…

  • Get used to it, your life will never change.
  • It’s been so long, things will never change.
  • You’ll never get well.
  • You’re too old.
  • You’re too young.
  • You don’t have the resources so you’ll never have what you’re asking for.
  • You’re never going to break that addiction.
  • You’re never going to lose weight.
  • You’re stuck and will never get out.
  • What you see is what you get.

Well let me tell you…THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!! He wants us focusing on our problems, lack, and circumstances.

1 Corinthians 2:9 However, as it is written: “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”

But the TRUTH is we serve a mighty God who wants good things for our lives. He wants us whole and restored completely. He’s the great physician and knows us better than ourselves!!! He owns every resource you need. So you can’t tell me that whatever we seek isn’t possible. For all things are possible to those who believe. When we keep our eyes fixed on the Lord, then our circumstances have no choice but to change and that’s why we can boldly say “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”

Think about it…God formed us in His image. He spoke the world into existence. He says we are to be the head and not the tail, above not below and more than conquerors through Christ. So how could we possibly think things can’t change?

 

In one brief moment, God could instantly heal that addiction without withdrawals. You could see those unwanted pounds melt miraculously off your body. Cancer cells could dry up. Finances, job opportunities or business deals could come out of no where. There is absolutely nothing God can’t do. He wants you to prosper and be in good health. Get yourself into the Word, get into His presence and watch Him move mightily on your behalf. Your best days are ahead of you not behind you. He wants you empowered and blessed so you can be an amazing testimony of His greatness.

To help motivate and give you some amazing worship time. Check out this worship from JoLynne Whitaker. It will help you move forward with eyes focused on our Heavenly Father!

Really??? Say What!!!

Last week we spoke about What Jesus Did and how God’s anointing changes everything. We briefly touched on the subject of giving and how today’s society is using it for their own purposes. This week, I would like to expand on this topic in order to help those struggling in this area.

Let’s start with something that happened to me a short time back. I was following and listening to a very well know, TV preacher that has a daily/weekly broadcast. I believed in what he was teaching and truly gave from my heart as God led me.

One day I was really struggling to keep hope alive as everything was going frantic in life. I really felt the need to have prayer spoken over me so I called this big TV preacher’s church for prayer. I was connected to a “higher up” in the organization due to my “giving” status. Wow, I was thinking this is great, a more anointed person is going to say prayer over me. That’s awesome.

But then everything changed. When this person answered the phone, do you know what the first thing out of this person’s mouth was? No joke…it was “How much do you give?”. It wasn’t how can I help you, what do you need prayer over, or what are you encountering? No, it was “How much do you give?” I was flabbergasted. When I blurted out “why does that even matter?”, her reply was “it tells me how much you believe.” REALLY??? WHATTTTT!!!!

When I got off the phone I was in utter shock and dismay. In my mind, giving has absolutely nothing to do with prayer, healing or restoration. Jesus healed the blind, healed the lame, raised the dead, turned water to wine, healed diseases, turned 5 loaves and a few fish into food for thousands, He cast out demons and performed miracles. He was compassionate, sympathetic, caring and loving. He touched the down casts of society that the “religious” people of the day wouldn’t go near. Jesus didn’t go about asking people to give in order to receive His healing or blessings. He simply asked them to believe in Him and that He was willing to heal them.

Mark 1:40-42 “A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.”

After I thought about the whole conversation, my heart ached for the sheer magnitude of people that received the same question as I did when they called for prayer. It completely turned me off from this pastor, his teachings and daily show. This was one of the closest people to the pastor. How many other hurting people have called only to be hurt further from this type of question or even worse, if they didn’t know Jesus, were they turned off altogether from seeking Him? It absolutely broke my heart!

When you need prayer, healing or restoration, IT DOESN’T MATTER your giving status. What God is interested in is how much you trust and believe in HIM! PERIOD!!!

Our popular preachers are doing a disservice to our generation. And when all they think about is your giving status then you can immediately conclude they are guided by greed and their million dollar mansions. God isn’t interested in how much you give. What He wants is for us to have open hands for when He tells us to give, to whom to give and how much. If we immediately obey Him, it shows that we are willing to trust and obey Him. That’s it guys, that’s what matters! Can God trust you to give when He guides you to? If so, then as you obey His guidance then He can trust you with more of His resources.

And for all those who have called these big mega churches for prayer and received the same type of questioning, I’m so sorry for your pain. Do not allow their actions to hinder your progress with our loving Heavenly Father. He loves and cares about you. The pharisees of our day will get their true rewards. Don’t let them take your rightful place in the kingdom just because of their greed. God loves you too much and I pray this writing opens your heart to the real Jesus and His way of giving. May His peace, love and joy embrace you in every area of life as you walk with Him, trusting and believing He has so much more for you than you could ever imagine! God Bless!

What Did Jesus Do?

Last week we spoke about God’s anointing and how restoration could be as quick as a blink of the eye. I would like to take it a bit further this week because it’s so imperative that we understand what we should be preparing for in the big scheme of things.

According to John 14:12-14, we’re told that we will do even greater things than the works Jesus did.

John 14:12-14 “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

That’s a tall order! Think about what Jesus really did. He healed the blind, healed the lame, raised the dead, turned water to wine, healed diseases, turned 5 loaves and a few fish into food for thousands, He cast out demons and performed miracles. He was compassionate, sympathetic, caring and loving. He touched the down casts of society that the “religious” people of the day wouldn’t go near.

In today’s society you see so many preachers and prophets getting up in front of TV cameras or stadiums telling people if you give $149 today then God will make so and so 1:49 scripture come true in your life. Sorry for saying this but that’s hogwash! Jesus didn’t go about asking people to give in order to receive His healing or blessings. He simply asked them to believe in Him and that He was willing to heal them.

Mark 1:40-42 “A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.”

It’s so imperative we understand this concept. We’ve been told for so long to give in order to receive. Now don’t get me wrong…God does guide us to give and wants us to be cheerful givers. However, he will guide us to whom and how much. But it doesn’t always have to be money. He may tell you to give away clothing, time or some other gift you may possess. The purpose of giving is to show God that we are willing to let go of what He provides and not be hoarders for “self” purposes; showing He can trust us with greater things.

However when it comes to the healing power of Jesus, that comes from Heaven itself through the anointed hand of God. God doesn’t want anyone to perish and He’s always willing to accept people into His kingdom before it’s too late.

People are hurting and feeling lost. The more society creates “social apps” the more unloved and disconnected people are feeling. They are seeking truth, acceptance, compassion and real love.

God wants us to perform greater things than Jesus did and win souls for the kingdom. Let’s be honest…it’s going to take supernatural miracles to jar people into questioning how the miracles took place and truly open their eyes to know God is real! That in turn will open dialogue between believers and the lost.

No matter what your profession is or where you live, God can use any believer, any where to accomplish His mighty acts. We must be prepared to love unconditionally without judgement. For those who God brings in our path may not look or act like us, but we need to have open arms to save those who have endured various pains, sufferings and loss. It will be by His anointing that we will make the difference.

Will you be ready for the Mighty Hand of God to bring a fresh anointing upon you? In a blink of an eye, God can use you in a mighty way if you will let Him. May your journey bring much love, joy and peace for His Glory!!!

Because God is mightily moving in all of our lives where victory is right around the corner, the enemy is going to do everything he can to put fear, pain, or wrong thinking into our minds and lives. We do not fight people, companies, family or anything of the human realm. Our battles are spiritual and we need to put the whole armor of God on every single day. (Ephesians 6:11-12)

Getting into God’s word is absolutely vital right now. Here are a couple of powerful and prophetic words to listen, meditate and stand upon. They are motivational, inspirational and highly needed tools to help you stand until victory is seen.
