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.

Jehovah Jireh ~ Lord My Provider

battle_fight_cartoonHave you been brought to your knees with nowhere to go? Have you found yourself fighting a battle that seems to only intensify? Are you drowning in debt with no relief in sight? Have you lost loved ones unexpectedly? Have things in your life continued to spiral downward and you find yourself at the bottom of a pit?

What are you battling today? What is missing in your life? What illness, loss, addiction are you fighting? What has a hold on you?

Satan came to steal, kill and destroy us. He will do everything in his power to stop God’s plan for your life. Whether he steals your job, home, car, relationships or destroys those around us with sickness, addictions and disease. He has one purpose and one purpose only…and that is to sway you away from your faith by constantly bombarding your life with difficulties and tragedies; making you wonder where God is or why God would allow such things to happen.

Nowhere in the Bible does it say only good things happen to those who love the Lord. It actually says just the opposite…

Luke 6:21 “Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. 22“Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. 23 “Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven.”

Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) He wants the absolutely best for you and your loved ones. Jesus took our sinful place on the cross so that believing in Him, we are made righteous and right-standing with our Heavenly Father. We don’t have to earn His love…He already loves us. We don’t have to change…He’ll change us. We won’t lose our salvation…Jesus is our salvation.

Satan is a liar and today, we are standing in faith that Jesus is Lord of Lords and Kings of Kings. He is our Jehovah Jireh. God’s eternal grace, continual provision and all-encompassing wisdom is available to all those who believe. Jehovah-Jireh is not “The LORD Might Provide,” but “The LORD Will Provide.” His name doesn’t simply indicate that He provided once and won’t do it again. No…it anticipates a future action, a constant help. God is, was, and will always be the same. He doesn’t change.

When satan’s fiery darts are constantly shaking your world, it is so important that you do not weaken in your faith. Our God is our provider and is more than capable to provide, satisfy, and help you overcome. You might not see a way but our God has a way. Don’t let your faith waver or unbelief creep in. Stand boldly at the feet of Jesus. Give Him your worries and doubts. Let Him know that through it all, you will praise His name above all else. It doesn’t matter what we see, what matters is who lives within us. He is far greater than anything that comes against you.

So today, let’s stand in faith together. Whatever your need is today, ask God for it in prayer and then believe that you receive it. (Romans 4:18-21) It doesn’t matter if your circumstances don’t fit what you’re asking for. God is not limited by our circumstances. He created the whole universe and has unlimited power. He wants us to ask, believe and know without a shadow of any doubt, He can provide you with unlimited resources. It’s not for us to show off but it’s for His glory!

Think of it this way…

  • Is your vehicle broken and run down? Ask God for a debt-free vehicle and then say out loud…Thank you Lord for providing my awesome new vehicle. I believe that I receive a debt-free vehicle that is top of the line in the name of Jesus.  You are the all powerful, almighty, all loving God and I praise your name.
  • Do you need a home to call your own or something larger to fit your family’s needs? Ask God for the perfect debt-free home and then say out loud…Thank you Lord for providing my family’s incredible home. I believe that I receive a debt-free home right now in the name of Jesus. You are the all powerful, almighty, all loving God and I praise your name.
  • Do you or someone you love need healing? One small touch from God is all it takes. Ask God for His swift healing and then say out loud…Thank you Lord for providing my healing. By Jesus stripes we are now healed. I believe that I receive your healing, in the name of Jesus. You are the all powerful, almighty, all loving God and I praise your name.

Whatever you need, God can provide. The key is to stand in faith and keep believing until everything is manifested and restored in your life. Don’t let satan steal your joy anymore. Stand strong and keep the faith for your Jehovah Jireh can and will provide. It’s not about being able to boast about your new job, car or home…it’s about receiving an incredible testimony about what God did for you to share with others. Because you will know that you know it was your Heavenly Father that provided and there was absolutely nothing you could have done to make it happen. It will defy all human logic.

God gives you breath and grace that is sufficient every single day. Why wouldn’t He give you your heart’s desires in order to Praise His Name? (Psalm 37:4) He is and will forever be…all you need! Don’t let fear and doubt stop you anymore. Take the limits off God and see His mighty hand swiftly come upon you.

Speak up ~ Thank up ~ And Get Ready To Share Your Testimony!

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!

VICTORY IS YOURS ~ JUST BELIEVE!

Break Free

miracles4The hunger and anticipation you feel for something to change in your life should be taken very seriously. Many of us have been in a transitional period for quite some time. It doesn’t have anything to do with how long you’ve waited or what you may or may not be doing. Everything that has been coming against you, that has been holding you down has all been a setup for God’s Mighty Hand to break forth!

When we get to a place in life where we have no idea how to get out of a situation or you don’t have the funds you need to make a change…then we are primed for God’s Glory to shine through to make things happen.

He doesn’t want us settling where we are. He doesn’t want us struggling to get by. He doesn’t want the pain or sorrow to keep us depressed, broken and disgusted. No, Our God is an all-powerful, all-loving God who wants the very best for each and every one of us.

When we open our mouths to confess His words over our lives, something happens in the supernatural realm. The angels are charged to watch over you and miracles can burst forth for God’s Glory.

We serve an AWESOME GOD! He is still on the Throne and is ever increasing His supernatural towards us. The wealth of the riches is laid up for His children. You are a Child of the Most High God. Claim your healing. Claim your restoration. Claim your future.

Command your healing and restoration to burst forth into you and your families lives. Prophesy to your life with God’s word. His word will not return void!

Be grateful for the things you’ve learned through the dry spell and for God’s hand that lead you through it. But now, it’s time for your complete healing and restoration. Claim God’s word and see it come to pass. He gave us the authority to claim what is true. If the Bible says you are healed, then you are healed! If the Bible says you are more than a conqueror, then you are. If the Bible says you will have more than enough to spare and share, then you will.

This is your moment. God is about to do something so amazing in His children’s lives that there is no question it is God’s miraculous and He will get all the Glory! We serve an amazing Heavenly Father! His children have been held down long enough and now it’s time for all of us to press through to the finish line!

There is absolutely nothing that God wants more than each of us sharing His love towards others, teaching them who He is and how He truly makes a difference in every one’s lives. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity of speaking on God’s behalf. As your life begins to transition and become restored, make sure to use your amazing testimony to share with those around you.
