Stand Together – National Prayer

Heavenly Father, you told us that when 2 or more agree you are in the midst. We come today in prayer for our Nation and elected officials that are standing for righteousness and justice for all Americans. For what happens in America effects the whole world. We pray for not only State and Federal officials but for all those making decisions. May all decisions be filled with God’s wisdom and discernment.

Please watch and pray with all the intercessors in the below video. Christopher McDonald of The McFiles does amazing work, bringing truth and God’s word to us all. This Faith Special is for all of us to come together in one voice under God, standing and praying together for our Great Nation. May God’s glory shine from sea to shining sea.

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.

Be You

Everyone of us has a purpose in the Kingdom of God. Whether you are called to be a teacher, writer, preacher, a bible study host, singer, scientist, doctor, janitor, a stay-at-home parent, an encourager, someone who smiles, or anything in between, we are all called according to His purpose. We may not know exactly what our calling is but we can rest assured that when God calls upon us, He will have already equipped us to become that special person for the Kingdom.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,
plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Each one of us is uniquely made. We are to be special and not like each other. Every single one of us are to become the person God wants us to be. Then together, we all uniquely fit into God’s bigger picture.

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus
to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Just because we see someone excelling doesn’t mean we need to try to be like them. We were never to be like someone else. God has given you a special calling and a creative talent that no one else has. When we try to be like someone else, we are actually attempting to be something we are not called to be which only leads to failure and frustration.

Our purpose is the very meaning of our existence and a distinct impact on the world around us. It’s very easy to look at others and think they have what you want, they are making a difference when you feel you don’t, they have a life you would like, they look how you wish you looked, and the list goes on. Never feel like your life doesn’t matter because it does. Say it with me, “MY LIFE MATTERS!”

Whether you realize it or not, your life is making an impact. People are always comparing themselves and watching from a distance. How you react to situations, what you say, how you say it, what you do…all these things impact those around you. Each one of us have a meaningful mission in life. Be yourself and let God’s mighty hand work within you. Be your unique you. There is no other person like you. There is no other person who can do the special mission God has just for you. Reach out and know your maker. He will guide you, help you and lead you on the path only you can take.

Be strong and press on. God’s plans and ways are higher than we can ever imagine. Everything you have gone through will not go to waste. Your testimony of God’s goodness, favor, restoration and healing power just might be the very thing that touches someone’s life and lead them to the one and only true God. As it is written in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Don’t give up now, you are closer to your breakthrough than you think. The smallest acts of kindness can make a huge impact. YOU ARE SPECIAL AND YOUR LIFE MATTERS!

Smack Em’ Down

Every day we are bombarded with thoughts. They can be either positive or negative. When we find ourselves drained of energy or circling the same issues over and over again, we are focusing on the wrong side of the equation and leaving God out of it.

We live in a fallen world tainted by sin, lust, evil, sickness, disease, anger and greed. The world wants what others have. They want their cake and eat it too. And many are willing to do whatever it takes to acquire success or fame.

Those of us in Christ need to focus on Him and Him alone. He is always with us whether we see Him or not. He is always fighting our battles even when we don’t see the circumstances change. When we get anxious or fearful it’s usually because our focus is on our wants and needs; on future things. But today is a gift. A gift from our Heavenly Father. It’s a day where we get to worship Him while unwrapping the day He’s giving us. Each day we get to see it unfold into something new.

See Him in every situation and every moment. It might be a bird, a song, a smile, a person or an unexpected present. Whatever God places into your life today, see the little things in a new light. His light!

Be focused today. Smack down the negative thoughts and keep your focus on Him. He has an amazing future for you and each day that unfolds will become more amazing when you see the little gifts along the way. He has you covered and you’re never alone. He will fulfill all your needs and desires. Keep believing and you will become all God wishes you to become, in His perfect way and His perfect timing!

You Are More Than A Conqueror

Jesus shed His blood in seven different places to break every curse and redeem us to every blessing His blood activates. It is a time to remember exactly what Jesus did for each and every one of us. He paid the ultimate sacrifice. He broke every curse. He broke every addiction. He gave us dominion and authority.

  1. In the Garden of Gesthemane: He bought back our willpower and to redeem our will. (Matthew 26:39)
  2. At the Whipping Post: By His stripes we are healed. Every curse of sickness and disease was broken. (1Peter 2:24)
  3. Crown of Thorns: To break the curse of poverty. (Genesis 3:17-18)
  4. In His hands: To restore dominion to the works of our hands. (Deut. 28:12-13)
  5. In His feet: To give us authority everywhere we walk. (Joshua 1:3)
  6. In His side: His was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and heals our broken hearts. (Luke 4:18)
  7. He stomped on the devil’s forehead and bruised His heel to break every family and generational curse. (Isaiah 53:5)

Take back your God-given blessings that Jesus gave us. When He said “IT IS FINISHED”, he didn’t mean it would be a hit or miss, pie-in-the-sky kind of faith. He returned us to the Father who is there for us every single moment of every day. He gave us everything we needed to make it through any trial, any difficulty, and any situation that comes against us that is contrary to the Word of God!

Take your stand against the enemy. You are more than conqueror through the Blood of Jesus. You are the head and not the tail, above and not below, you are the lender not the borrower. Take back what the devil has stolen and remind him that Jesus’ blood gives you complete victory.

Don’t let another day go by without thanking Jesus for His sacrifice and for the heavenly blessings He has bestowed towards you. Return unto Him and he’ll return unto you. Give and it shall be given to you. Know the seven places Jesus shed His blood and understand why God’s Word is Final! It is because of Jesus that you will have favor with Him and with man. Praise His Name above all others and watch the amazing blessings burst forth into your life.

Today is a new day. Activate the 7 places Jesus shed His blood and He will bring favor upon you. Let God stand in front of you and your family to make every curse pass over your home, business, health, family, and finances. Almighty God will open the windows of Heaven over you and your family which will release the blessings that Jesus’ blood provides. You are more than a conqueror through the Blood of Jesus Christ and today, your life will never be the same. Rejoice for the Lord is good – Your Victory Is At Hand!

Grab Your Destiny Today

settle-for-less-smallerHave you had someone walk out of your life? Did someone do something wrong towards you? Did someone say bad things about you? Did your husband or wife leave you unexpectedly? Did a promotion go to someone less qualified than you?

Whatever you may have endured so far in your life is not where you need to stay. Your past doesn’t define you nor does what others say about you!

Stop and think for a moment…Who do you spend most of your time with? Are they negative, bitter, or even gossipers? Do they bring you down or lift you up? Are you happy at your place of employment? Do you feel like you’re too old to make a change now? Do you feel like there has to be more to life than this?

It’s time to let go of mediocrity! What we may see as a tragedy, a loss, or a devastation might just be God closing a door that needed to be closed. God may be trying to propel you into a whole new level but there are things that need to be sifted out of your life before they can come to pass. You may have endured a long period of loneliness. You may have endured a long bout of sadness. You may have endured terrible things. But one of the best things you can do is QUIT watering the weeds or feeding the hurt, the discouragement, the anger, the bitterness, or the sadness. Let God close those doors and be done with it!

What’s your assignment? What’s your destiny? What incredible opportunities lie ahead for you? What is in store for you and your family? When will you meet that special person to spend the rest of your life with? When will you find those incredible friends you desperately yearn for? When will your disease, sickness, or addictions be healed?

Don’t let your past hold you down any further, be willing to break out of your old history box, start taking yourself out of the negative environments and start being selective with who you spend time with. Let God bring you restoration and victory because He promises to give you double for your trouble. Let Him be your destiny maker. He will open the doors you need opened. He will restore all that has been lost. He will bring people into your life that lift you up. He will bring the opportunities your way.

Get out of your comfort zone and don’t accept mediocrity any longer. Start feeding your faith and take bold steps today! There are seeds of greatness within you, filled with favor and grace. Feed your hope, feed your faith, feed your destiny. Get energized and see the new opportunities open suddenly in your life that propel you higher than ever before. One small touch is all it takes and you’ll find yourself happier and more fulfilled than you have ever dreamed.

Become a destiny dreamer today and watch your life transform in the most amazing ways!

SUDDENLY THINGS SHIFT!

So many of us have been waiting a long time, holding on till there’s nothing left, and knowing that we know something is shifting in the air but haven’t quite experienced the transition yet. Many of us have been wondering if our prayers are being heard, is there something we need to be doing differently, or even might be questioning if God is real. This is all normal and no guilt needed. God understands the difficulties we face and he certainly understands that when things get tough, it’s easy to backslide into questioning and wondering.

But now His timing is coming into play where God has said ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! You’ve suffered long enough and He is about to do something amazing in your life.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
