Picture Yourself

BeautyEveryday, we are bombarded with “picture-perfect” people on television, the internet, and in magazines. Every where you look, you see models that are absolutely gorgeous to the eye. Flipping channels, you see advertisements for facial creams, liposuction, miracle “diet” pills, and the like. Is it any wonder why people have such a low self-esteem of themselves?

When we compare ourselves to others, we tend to see only our flaws. But what if you could picture yourself in a completely different light? Would it impact your life?

We have been specifically told that we are made a little lower than the angels, and that God crowned us with glory and honor. (Psalm 8:5)

Being God’s child, you are beautiful in His eyes. You are made in God’s own image. (Gen. 1:26)  He has given you talents, skills, and wisdom that is unique and all your own. No one else can compare to you. You are a MASTERPIECE! (Ephesians 2:10)  You are ROYALTY! (Rev. 1:6)

Instead of seeing all the so-called flaws, see yourself being surrounded in God’s amazing favor and glory. When you walk into a job interview, a business meeting, classroom, or a any where you go; see yourself surrounded in God’s anointing. See yourself having insight like no other person. See yourself getting the job or the promotion. God already crowned you…You have his incredible favor upon you.

Crowned

So, the next time you feel yourself getting depressed on the way you look or about something you are lacking…remember that you are wonderfully made in God’s image. Every hair is counted on your head and He ensures you have what you need, when you need it, and you are GORGEOUS in His eyes! His favor, glory, and honor surrounds you every where you go!

Walk tall and shine brightly.  For when you walk into the room, the atmosphere changes for the better because God’s glory is upon you!

God’s Miracles

locustWhat have you lost during the course of your life? Maybe you lost your job, business, home, car, finances or maybe you’ve lost your health, time, family members, friends, relationships or even dreams. Maybe you even have the mindset that it will never get better or you just simply can’t see a way out.

If that’s you, then you’re going to love the great news today…

OUR GOD IS A MIRACLE WORKING GOD!
OUR GOD IS A GOD OF RESTORATION!
OUR GOD WILL MAKE THE DEVIL REPAY 7 TIMES WHAT WAS LOST!

Every tear you’ve shed, God took notice. For every pain, defeat or loss that seemed to get the best of you, God took notice. Everything you found yourself going through has been recorded and while you were struggling to hold onto your faith and struggling to hold onto your dreams…God already had a solution in mind. He loves you so much that He made sure there was a solution heading your direction even though you might not have seen it yet.

Nothing surprises our Heavenly Father. Nothing can slip by without Him noticing. Whatever pain has been caused during all the losses or defeats, have simply been setting you up for restoration. Restoration is an amazing way for God’s glory to shine in your life. You might not see a way out, but God has one. You might not see how anything could change in your life, but God already has a miracle in mind.

God is merciful! He knows what you’ve endured, what has been lost and He also knows what dreams He has for you and how to bring them to pass.  All you need to do is have the mindset that God is all powerful, all knowing and all loving.  Continue to hold onto your hope and faith; knowing that when God is in charge, all things will work out for your good.

It truly doesn't matter what we can see in the natural. (Hebrews 11:1)
It doesn't matter what your bank account looks like or the economy.
It simply doesn't matter.
When God is in charge...all things are possible!  (Luke 1:37)

Wake up every morning and thank God for His restoration and miraculous solutions. Thank Him for restoring the lost years, opportunities, relationships, finances, love, promotions, health, dreams, sound mind, passions, strength, joy, peace, and everything else in between.

God is never limited by our thinking or by our resources. He owns the entire universe and there is absolutely nothing He won’t do for you. Keep standing in faith. Keep trusting and believing. God has you in the palm of His hand and you will receive your divine inheritance through Jesus Christ. Jesus made us joint-heirs which makes you loved and very special. Hold onto Him in the midst of your chaos, your restoration has been coming for a long time and nothing AND I DO MEAN NOTHING will ever keep it from happening.

Today, I believe and declare that God is breaking all strongholds and everything is being restored that belongs to each of you. Today is a New Day! Believe in the unseen…build your Faith….Rise Up for God’s Favor is upon you!

Your future will be much greater than your past!

There is Power

A-Stunning-Creation-god-the-creator-11439510-1024-768Have you ever thought about how God could possibly take care of everything in the world, all at the same time? Think about it…if I’m praying or calling out to Him at the same time as you, how can He hear both of us at the same time? When you truly start thinking about what it must be like to be an Heavenly Father to millions, all over the world; you start grasping just how BIG He really is!

Throughout the Bible, we are given glimpses of His amazing provisions, miracles, healing, and protection. The best of best for all those who called upon Him. He didn’t care what color, race, or gender you were…He just poured out His love to all those who would believe. And if you truly believe, then the words in the Bible are pure and true. They aren’t just stories or myths, they truly happened. The more you dive into the Bible, you become to realize just how amazing God is and why Jesus came to the earth.

Whenever God spoke, things happened. He said let there be light and there was light. He said let the earth put forth vegetation; plants and fruit trees were created. He said let there be lights in the expanse of the heaven; and the sun and moon were created. After all of these things and more were made…God made man and woman. He didn’t just make them…he also blessed them. Then He took rest because He saw it was all good and approved it completely. (Genesis 1:1-28, 31)

Nothing has changed. He is, was, and will always be the same God. He never changes. Jesus purposely came to give us life, and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) No matter what you face in life, you have someone who truly cares about you and He wants to help. So today, I wanted to remind you of just how big God is. There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain that tries to hold you back. Don’t waste another moment, get to truly know Him. The more you do, the more He becomes real in your life. And, your life will never be the same. The POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS breaks every chain.

What Did Jesus Do?

Last week we spoke about God’s anointing and how restoration could be as quick as a blink of the eye. I would like to take it a bit further this week because it’s so imperative that we understand what we should be preparing for in the big scheme of things.

According to John 14:12-14, we’re told that we will do even greater things than the works Jesus did.

John 14:12-14 “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

That’s a tall order! Think about what Jesus really did. He healed the blind, healed the lame, raised the dead, turned water to wine, healed diseases, turned 5 loaves and a few fish into food for thousands, He cast out demons and performed miracles. He was compassionate, sympathetic, caring and loving. He touched the down casts of society that the “religious” people of the day wouldn’t go near.

In today’s society you see so many preachers and prophets getting up in front of TV cameras or stadiums telling people if you give $149 today then God will make so and so 1:49 scripture come true in your life. Sorry for saying this but that’s hogwash! Jesus didn’t go about asking people to give in order to receive His healing or blessings. He simply asked them to believe in Him and that He was willing to heal them.

Mark 1:40-42 “A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.”

It’s so imperative we understand this concept. We’ve been told for so long to give in order to receive. Now don’t get me wrong…God does guide us to give and wants us to be cheerful givers. However, he will guide us to whom and how much. But it doesn’t always have to be money. He may tell you to give away clothing, time or some other gift you may possess. The purpose of giving is to show God that we are willing to let go of what He provides and not be hoarders for “self” purposes; showing He can trust us with greater things.

However when it comes to the healing power of Jesus, that comes from Heaven itself through the anointed hand of God. God doesn’t want anyone to perish and He’s always willing to accept people into His kingdom before it’s too late.

People are hurting and feeling lost. The more society creates “social apps” the more unloved and disconnected people are feeling. They are seeking truth, acceptance, compassion and real love.

God wants us to perform greater things than Jesus did and win souls for the kingdom. Let’s be honest…it’s going to take supernatural miracles to jar people into questioning how the miracles took place and truly open their eyes to know God is real! That in turn will open dialogue between believers and the lost.

No matter what your profession is or where you live, God can use any believer, any where to accomplish His mighty acts. We must be prepared to love unconditionally without judgement. For those who God brings in our path may not look or act like us, but we need to have open arms to save those who have endured various pains, sufferings and loss. It will be by His anointing that we will make the difference.

Will you be ready for the Mighty Hand of God to bring a fresh anointing upon you? In a blink of an eye, God can use you in a mighty way if you will let Him. May your journey bring much love, joy and peace for His Glory!!!

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!

A Night Of Hope

For all those struggling to understand, filled with fear and seeing their lives turned upside down…it’s ok to ask God questions. We don’t have all the answers or completely understand what is happening around the world but there is one who does.

This incredible band got together remotely to encourage us to love one another, stand tall against the unknown and know that our God is in control. I highly recommend everyone watch, sing along and know that you are in amazing, mighty hands…our Heavenly Father! We stand from a position of victory through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

Love and blessings to all. May God protect and keep you strong through the battles of today. May we all come out stronger on the other side. God Bless!!
