Fear Not

Don't be afraidWhen you look around, everything seems to be going crazy right now. Everyone is buying up supplies. Store shelves are going bare.  Pandemonium every where. What’s worse is that the news is feeding the fear. Just a brief moment watching the news, you would think we are all going to die today. Right now, it’s extremely easy to become fearful or begin to wonder what is going to happen next. Stay calm and hear the good news!

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 health, your business, your comings and goings…whatever “it” is that is trying to attack you…YOU ARE PROTECTED!

But God doesn’t stop there?

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 want to just 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 city, blessed in the field, blessed in your finances, blessed in your business, blessed in your family, blessed in your health…blessed…blessed…blessed!

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.

Don’t let the devil scare you. Keep your eyes on Jesus!!! God did not give us His only begotten son, just to let the wiles of the devil overcome you. You have a purpose and destiny that God wants to see come to pass.

SO WALK BOLDLY TODAY AND PRAISE HIS MIGHTY NAME! GOD IS BIG ENOUGH TO HANDLE ANYTHING THROWN YOUR WAY!

Do you know Jesus? If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, invite Him into your life right now. Say:

Dear Jesus, I believe you died on the cross for me and rose from the dead. You defeated death, hell and the grave. Forgive me of my sins. Wash me as white as snow. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. May my name be written in the Lamb’s book of Life from this day forward. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

If you prayed that prayer, Welcome to the family! Your enemies are defeated and you are now in God’s mighty hands. Rejoice and see the salvation of the Lord!

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!

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!

Unleash Your Potential

God's PlanEver feel like you are going in circles? Just when you think you are heading in the right direction, you seem to hit every road block there is or something happens in your life that makes you second guess yourself. It never fails that when you are spending time with the Lord and you are stepping out in faith, things seem to come against you in a fury.

According to Jeremiah 29:11, God has an amazing plan for every single one of us. A plan that is far greater than anything we could imagine. However, as God’s plan starts taking shape, you will find that great adversity comes your way too.

God’s plan should give us great hope for our future. God’s plan is so incredible that most people will not understand what you are doing or where you are going. God’s plan is filled with peace, love, joy and prosperity…but as you step out towards that plan, there are many things that will come against you. It is during those times that your faith is being tested.

When you find yourself in adversity and everything that can go wrong ~ goes wrong…do you allow yourself to wallow in the pain, hurt, frustration, anger and lack or do you come running boldly to the Throne of God to place it all at His feet, speaking HIS WORD into the situations?

God has unlimited potential for your life but we need to cooperate with God and His plan. We need to break the barriers of contentment, pain, frustration, hurt, and anger while continuing to learn and grow through it all.

Every day is important. Every day we need to be spending time with God. This is the only way He can help develop us into the person He knows we can be. However, if you do not take the time to develop and understand God’s ways then your ultimate plan may get off course or never materialize. We have to stay the course and allow God to direct our footsteps. Without Him we can do nothing…oh but with HIM…all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

Don’t settle for contentment or feel the need to fit in. God has a specific plan for your life and it needs time to develop. Let God show you your God-given gifts and talents. For when you allow Him to take control and step out in faith, He will open doors that no man can shut and shut the doors that no man can open.

Don’t waste another single moment! Reach out to your Lord and Savior today! No matter how you feel, no matter who talks badly about you, no matter what you see in your life…God wants the absolute best for you and is willing to make it all come true. But you need to cooperate with Him by meeting Him first in the morning. Let God be God in your life. You will never know what you’re capable of until God gets involved. It is because of Him that you have unlimited potential and unlimited grace that comes upon you.

Be that one light shining on the hill that no one ever has seen until today! God will make a way when there is none. God will provide when you can’t see how. God will give you peace in the middle of any storm. No one and nothing can do what God can do! He is the great physician. He is the great peace. He is your strength when you are weak. He is your friend when all others fail you. He is closer than a brother. He is all this and more. So place all your cares upon His shoulder and allow Him to do all the heavy lifting.

Be encouraged to seek His plan above all else. Seek His wisdom for it is finer than gold and silver. Seek His presence through all your difficulties. He promises to deliver you and fulfill the plans He has for you!

Unleash Your Potential Today!

YOU WILL BE VICTORIOUS IN THE END!

Let The Transition Begin

God’s Word for 2020 is all about FREEDOM! Freedom from depression, freedom from lack, freedom from addictions, freedom from financial stress and worry, freedom from family difficulties, and freedom from whatever it is that’s holding you back from God’s best for your life.

No matter what your current situation is, He wants to make the entire transition smooth and easy; however we must participate to let that happen. We must be willing to let go. Let go of things that no longer are needed. It could be as simple as a piece of clothing or as difficult as saying goodbye to a long-term friend. Whatever God leads you to let go of, be willing to step out in faith and let go!

This is an amazing time that we are living in. God is moving bigger than ever before. Just when all things look lost, an unexpected flip of the coin will happen and your life will move in amazingly new directions.

One thing to remember during these transitions is that God is never trying to take anything from you but is always trying to bring something better into your life. As the Bible states, “all things work out for our good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose”. (Romans 8:28)

When we are faced with difficult situations, it is very hard to let go of things when God is prompting you to do so. Whether it’s our weak faith, not enough confidence that God will provide, or we like to feel we’re losing control…it will always rear itself in the worst of times and you’ll find yourself struggling against the very thing God wants changed.

Maybe your situation looks completely hopeless. Maybe you or a loved one received a terrible diagnosis and the doctors are not giving you any hope. Maybe you’ve hit rock bottom and there’s no way out. Maybe you have friends or family members who are saying negative things towards you or mistreating you. Whatever you are facing today, there is hope. You are not alone. And you are loved very deeply. God Himself made you before you were ever born and He knows exactly where you are in life.

Quit struggling to find the answer. Rest in Him and meditate on His amazing works in the Bible because you are unique and beautifully made. You don’t have to struggle anymore. God will make a way when you don’t see one. He will make sure you have friends that are positive and uplifting even though you may find yourself alone right now. He will open the windows of Heaven and pour out such a blessing that you will not have enough room to contain it where you become the lender and not the borrower.

Whatever God’s plans are for your life, you can rest assured that He will bring it to pass and it will be far greater than you ever imagined. Everything you’ve gone through up till now will look like peanuts compared to God’s greatness shining brightly in your life. Your transition and situations are moving into your favor. Your FREEDOM is about to burst forth! Hold on because it will be the most amazing time in your life if you’re willing to believe and trust in Him! Accept His peace today and let the transition begin!

God of Hope

Calm the StormAround the world, believers are facing some of the most difficult times they have ever encountered. They are struggling through adversity from every angle. Physically, financially, spiritually, mentally and emotionally shaken to their very core. It has been the worst of times for most. Yet through it all, they have reasons to dig their heels in and hold on for dear life; knowing that the stormy seas can’t last forever.

The devil knows that his time is almost up. He is doing everything in his power to make you give up. He wants to make sure that you don’t make it to the other side. He doesn’t want you to see your victory, your healing or your prosperity. He knows that if he can make you change your course, then he can put some distance between you and your God-given future. But, the devil is a liar! (John 8:44)

don't give up1God has seen you holding on for dear life. He has seen the storms raging against you. He has seen every tear shed and heard every word you’ve spoken. He knows that you are at the end of your rope. Yet, God also knows that through all of your pain and suffering, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The devil has had his time and the bell is ringing to its end. God is about to reverse the curse in your life and make such an impact; that every single one of your enemies will flee.

There is an old saying, “don’t get your hopes up”. Well, that too is a lie.

Our God is the God of hope. He wishes to fill you with such joy and peace that the Holy Spirit will be overflowing with hope. (Romans 15:13) But God doesn’t stop there. He says “your hope will never leave you ashamed.” (Romans 5:5)

So, expect the unexpected. Expect God’s promises to come to pass in your life today. Hope beyond fear. Fill your mind with God’s goodness and love. For when God’s mighty hand comes upon your life, you will be standing tall. Your testimony will be so great, people will want to know what has happened. They will want to know how your life suddenly changed.

Keep embracing HOPE. Keep dreaming BIG dreams.

You are about to encounter God’s goodness like never before!

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)
