What You Need To Know About God

Who is God? What is His Character like? Why should we care? Why do we have to go through these things?

Sometimes, you have to go back to the revelation of who God is before you can move forward. God is very tactical about this and He will create a situation for a revelation. What do I mean?

First…let’s determine what the Bible says about God.

For verifiable Biblical Scriptures regarding the above statements click here

Now that we’ve established who God is and what He’s like, it’s important for us to know that everything that happens in our lives has a reason and purpose. The things you went through had to happen. You had to survive! You had to make it! You had to believe you’re more than a conqueror through Christ! You had to hold onto I’m healed by His stripes, I am the head and not the tail, I am above and not below. You had to hold on when no one else would! You had to believe when all others were walking away from you.

Don’t listen to the naysayers that surround you. Don’t lean on people who can’t believe or trust in where God is taking you. Through it all, God was and is determined to prove His power and presence in your life.

Get off the “Why?” land. You don’t need a reason! Instead let God give you a revelation. He will open whatever doors that are needed for you to flourish into your destiny. And when all things happen in God’s perfect timing, those naysayers will start asking questions giving you an amazing opportunity of sharing God’s love through your own personal testimony. It will be a glorious day when you save souls through the goodness God showed you through it all! He can and will make your restoration come forth! Don’t give up. Keep pushing forward till you see His Victory in your life!

Watch Pastor Steven Furtick bring this incredible teaching to life. It will change the way you see things!

When It Just Doesn’t Make Sense

“On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, ‘Shout! For the LORD has given you the city!'” (Joshua 6:15-16)

As Joshua rounded the walls for the seventh time on the seventh day, it’s hard to imagine the nervousness he felt — and perhaps even the confusion. He had spent seven days walking around a city wall leading an entire nation of people. And if that wasn’t enough, the final instructions for obtaining victory was for his people to blow trumpets and give a loud shout.

Why did they have to walk around a city wall? Why seven laps? Why seven days? And how was shouting supposed to cause a structurally sound wall to collapse?

A lot of it didn’t make sense, but when it comes to faith — that isn’t that unusual. In fact, rarely are the instructions of faith perfectly logical and comfortable.

Faith will tell you to have patience when everything else is telling you to panic.
Faith will tell you to hold on when everything else is telling you to let go.
Faith will tell you to push forward when everything else is telling you to pull back.

You may not be facing a monstrous wall like Joshua was, but you are facing something. And even if the way forward doesn’t make sense, the good news is it doesn’t have to. Having faith isn’t about making sense; it’s about moving forward, no matter what.

God will break every curse, every sickness, every lack, and everything that is coming against you. Shout for joy and keep moving forward no matter what. God will provide you the victory!

Excerpt by Steven Furtick

 

Expect The Best

positive1James 1:6: “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”

During a recent conversation, someone mentioned the old classic saying “expect the worst and hope for the best”. Do you ever find yourself thinking that way too?

Now I completely understand why people like to use this phrase because it helps them make sure they have numerous plans if something starts faltering in unexpected ways. But I still really dislike the statement because I feel it goes against everything us Christians stand for and really places us out of God’s alignment. Here’s why…

When you’re planning for the worse to happen, it places you in a very difficult situation. Planning contingencies is going to make your faith waver because you have already put it in your mind that something is going to go wrong. Expectation is a form of your faith. So by placing the thought that something is going to go haywire or terribly wrong, then that is exactly what’s going to happen and you’ll put more time and effort into making backup plans than holding on to God’s word that everything will work out by His love and grace.

Fear and doubt will always creep in when you are believing for something amazing to happen in your life. You will have to choose if you will allow the fear and doubt to mull through your mind or to believe that God wants the best for you and He will make it happen.

There’s never a day that goes by when some fleck of doubt won’t try to bombard your thoughts. There’s never a day that goes by when fear won’t try to take hold. Don’t let it toss you like a wave of the sea. Instead, rebuke the fear and doubt and put it in it’s rightful place…in Jesus’ hands. That’s why we are told that no weapon formed against us will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)

Don’t let the enemy get the best of you. Keep standing on God’s word. Keep holding onto your faith. For when you do, God’s supernatural will touch your natural and only good things will happen for you and your family. Don’t let another day go by before you learn to hold to the truth and let it set you free! God is always ready, willing, and able. Let Him be your source and know that everything will be alright!

Romans 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Be A Doubt Buster Today

Breaking ChainesEver find yourself saying “I doubt that could happen” or “my circumstances will never change” or “it’s just the way it is”?

We all go through long periods in our lives when nothing seems to be going right. Whether you got a bad report from the doctor or you can’t pay your bills. Maybe your family is in strife or you can’t find a job. Maybe your body is being attacked.

Whatever you find yourself going through, it’s easy to think on the problem and complain about it constantly. Worse yet, if it’s been a long time with the same problem or many problems all at once, you can find yourself saying I guess I just need to get used to it and you accept defeat.

No! There are two ways to live our lives. One in the “doubting Thomas” mindset or one in the “all things are possible to those who believe” mindset. When we doubt, we are being double minded. God said he gave us the power to choose life or death; therefore choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20) He also has made it quite clear that when we doubt, we are setting ourselves up for failure.

James 1:6-7: “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.”

God makes it quite clear that if we doubt than we should not expect anything from Him. Basically when we doubt, we are telling God that our problems are larger than He is. How do you think that must make God feel when He created everything thing in the world, including us?

So you must be wondering, now what can I do? We must become more childlike where we stop analyzing everything to death. Every time a doubting thought comes into your mind, immediately replace it with God’s word!

  • When you have a thought that the pain will never go away…say “by His stripes I am healed!
  • When you think my circumstances will never change…say “I am more than a conqueror through Christ!”
  • When your finances dry up and you have no way to pay the bills…say “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches and glory!”

Feed Your Faith

No matter what you see or feel, God knows every single piece of hair on your head. He counts your tears. There is absolutely nothing too hard for Him.

It may be taking longer than you would like and you are finding yourself frustrated; it’s okay…God completely understands. Ask Him for His forgiveness. AND FROM THIS DAY FORWARD…choose life and life more abundantly over every doubt, over every fear, over every pain. For God can not lie and all His promises will come to pass in your life if you will hold on tight and push the doubt away.

Let’s all become Doubt Busters today! You are not staying where you are right now…you have a tremendous life ahead of you and nothing, and I do mean nothing, can hold God’s promises back from being completed in your life! Stay in faith and know that everything will be alright!

Back to Basics

back-to-basicsWhat does your Bible say?

My Bible says Jesus walked on water. My Bible says Jesus calmed the storm. My Bible says Jesus rose Lazarus from the dead. My Bible says Jesus fed over 5,000 men, women and children with a child’s snack. My Bible says Jesus is closer than a brother. My Bible says the Holy Spirit is my helper. My Bible says the Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer. My Bible says that God gave us a spirit of power, love, self discipline and a sound mind. My Bible says that God will give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed. My Bible says through His stripes we are healed. My Bible says God’s grace is sufficient. My Bible says seek the Kingdom of God and everything will be added.

God promises good news and prosperity for every believer! God’s Word is solid truth for He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Today I ask that you go back to the basics.

It doesn’t matter what your circumstances say. It doesn’t matter what your bank accounts say. It doesn’t matter what the doctor says or what addiction you might have. It doesn’t matter where you are or where you came from. It doesn’t matter if you feel overwhelmed, afraid or have failed previously.

My Bible says God has an abundant life filled with peace, love, joy and happiness for all those who believe. My Bible says that all things work out for our good. My Bible promises that if we keep standing in faith through the midst of all the storms, we will have victory.

So today we are going back to the basics. No matter what anyone says or thinks, Keep believing. Keep standing on His promises until things begin to change in your life. Because my Bible says perfect love casts out all fear. Ask God for a deep revelation of His love and meditate on His Word constantly. If you just get back to the basics without all the fluff, God will guide you, protect you, love you, show Himself to you, break the fear, heal your pain, guide your path and your life will be greater than ever before.

Accept It ~ Believe It ~ Receive It ~ And Speak It

God is good and worthy to be praised. If you continue to believe and build your faith…

you will see the Glory of God in your life!

Thank Him right now that everything will turn out alright.

Because my Bible says your beginnings may seem little but your latter days will be very great!
