The “I CAN’T” Syndrome

Everyday people are tormenting themselves by thinking:

I Can’t change
I Can’t believe
I Can’t get over this sickness
I Can’t go on
I Can’t forgive
I Can’t pay my bills
I Can’t get a job and so on.

What we must realize is that this mentality and attitude sets you up to fail, to quit, and to live a negative, defeated life.  It is a very poisonous mindset that we must overcome in order to see victory within our lives.

The Bible has so many wonderful scriptures that deal with this mindset.  When you start thinking “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) or Oh Lord my God, I cried to You and You healed me.” (Psalm 30:2); you will begin to notice changes in your life.

The most important thing we can do, is stand firm in His word and have faith that he will change our circumstances.  For in Ephesians 3:20 it says “He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all we can ask or think“, so why in the world we would allow the dreaded “I Can’t” Syndrome rule in our lives.  “I Can’t” should not be in our vocabulary.

We serve a BIG GOD and he wants us to have more than enough to spare and share.  Why do you think one of God’s names in the Bible is El Shaddai?  It means more than enough!  I don’t think that would be coincidental, do you?

The best thing we can do to over come this negative mindset is set our eyes above.  “For my God shall supply ALL your needs according to His riches.” (Philippians 4:19)  There is absolutely no question that God has you covered, no matter what the circumstance looks like.  We are VICTORIOUS and CONQUERORS through Christ!

So, Stand Up and Shake It Off

SAY…I CAN!  Watch Me!

Shake To Wake

Have you noticed things are being shaken these days? From politics and religion to our own family lives, there is nothing being untouched through the hand of our Heavenly Father.

“At that time his voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.”(Hebrews 12:26-27 NIV)

The “why” is critical to understanding the real purpose. Many of us get complacent in our time with God. We get too busy striving to be better, spend more time with family, working ourselves too hard, trying to make more money, getting ahead in life, building better lives and the list goes on and on and on.

Nothing is wrong with those things. God wants us to have nice things, loving families, caring about others and being victorious in life. However it’s when we strive so hard on our own and forget that it is HIM who provides, restores, loves, and gives us the desires of our heart is when things must be shaken for us to return to HIM.

It’s not just on a personal level that is being shaken. Right now we are seeing nations being shaken. America’s politics have become something we’ve never seen before. It’s unprecedented where dividing lines are being thickly drawn, ugly accusations are being thrown and dark versus light is so prevalent.  We are seeing good people being smeared and decimated.

This is the time we must repent for losing sight of our first love…GOD! We must spend our most precious moments with our Heavenly Father. We must pray for all those who are standing with God and pushing God’s Will for America and around the world.

Children of God it is time to raise up, praise up, and worship like never before. Grow deeper in God so He can wake you up to purpose, discernment and place you on an unshakable foundation.

Jesus died to break every curse that could come against us. Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. Don’t stop pushing forward. We are called for such a time as this! Return unto Him and He will return unto us. Don’t let this critical time pass you by. We are needed to make a difference. Every person can make an impact. Every moment you spend with Jesus counts. It’s time for action! Are you ready?

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!

His Anointing Makes The Difference

Almost every believer in Jesus has been attacked lately. Whether it’s in your health, finances, family, friends, work, business or any other area of your life, it’s been a difficult time. Some of us have been attacked so much that when looking at the circumstances, you wonder how in the world will the mess change.

And the good news is…It will be by His anointing.

Your circumstances may look bleak. However if you are being attacked or you have no idea how in the world things are going to change, then you are primed for God to move mightily in your life. One small touch from Him and life changes in an instant.

God created us from dirt. He raised Lazarus from the dead. He took Joseph from the pit to the palace. Job lost everything and become more prosperous than he ever was before. And all it took was God’s anointing to dramatically change their lives.

We’re loved by the most Holy, Creative, Loving Heavenly Father who has unlimited resources! You may not see a way out but He does. The question is not about how things are going to change but how will you use the changes to impact those around you. Will you testify His goodness to touch someone else’s life? Will you use the resources He has given you to advance His Kingdom? Will you do what He asks you to do?

That one small touch changes everything.

Isaiah 58:8 “Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”

Think of it this way…before Moses was sent to help God’s people overcome and be released from Egypt, they were treated as slaves. They lost their land and possessions. They were abused, beaten and driven to exhaustion. But God had other plans for them. It took God’s anointing to take them from slaves to walking out of slavery with treasures and wealth. You could say they went from the pit to success and wealth.

So don’t think for a moment that God has forgotten you. Your wilderness may have been long suffering filled with pain, sorrow and hurt. But we serve a MIGHTY GOD whose touch can take you from the pit to restoration in a blink of an eye. It will be so overwhelmingly powerful that it will automatically get people’s attention; which in turn will give you an opportunity to glorify our Heavenly Father!

Will you be ready to do God’s will when His anointing comes upon you? HE IS A GOOD GOD and everything will be alright! Your breakthroughs are coming, just hold on and be prepared to glorify HIM!
