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!!!

Because God is mightily moving in all of our lives where victory is right around the corner, the enemy is going to do everything he can to put fear, pain, or wrong thinking into our minds and lives.

Keep Pushing

God is doing some mighty things in the world right now. However those of us who love the Lord, there seems to be a mighty battle for our minds, body and soul. We feel stagnant, disconnected and lost. Fear is trying to grip us. Disease and pain is attacking our bodies. Friends and family are leaving us. Things just seem to be going no where fast.

But I have a great word for you today. Keep pushing through to the other side.

For all those who feel like they have been living in a “prison” of some sort, do not give up. Now is the time to hold your ground. Renew your mind every time fear tries to take hold. Renew your mind every time something goes haywire. Find a scripture that you can recite all day if you have to…just DO NOT GIVE UP! Hold on and press through.

I’ve personally dealt with many battles in every area of life lately that has really tried putting depression and fear upon me; and trying to read God’s word has even become a major battle. Not that I don’t want to read but I seem to have a block that is keeping me from reading God’s word. This shall pass. However in the mean time, I have searched for “word” nuggets to help me get through the day, to renew my mind and hold steadfast to God’s word. It’s a way to keep my eyes focused and fill my soul while battling in our earthly realm.

The good news is that if you find yourself in some major battles then you are doing something right. It means that your adversary is seeing God’s mighty hand upon your life and he is doing everything he can to stop it. The devil is a liar. Don’t give him the victory. Stay the course, keep believing and hold onto your faith at all costs.

Here are just a few of those “word” nuggets to help you stand and keep pushing through to the other side. Just as Esther did at this time, she prayed and went against all things in the natural to get to the other side. She didn’t feel God. She felt disconnected but was willing to go against everything in the natural to experience God’s supernatural. And boy did God come through to save His people.

We are His people. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then you are a child of the Most High God. You are His beloved and YOU WILL BE AN OVERCOMER!

Enjoy the nuggets below and allow them to renew your mind. Stand your ground, hold on and you will see God’s mighty hand breakthrough into your life.

Praise Him In The Middle

God is doing new things across the world right now. He’s stirring up anything and everything that has been causing evil in our lives. His hand is mightily stretching forth and He’s calling His servants to come out of the world’s systems. He’s pulling all of us into higher understanding and is asking us to see His mighty works transform. The most important thing we can do right now is PRAISE HIM!

Psalm 113 (KJV): 113 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. 2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. 3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised. 4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high, 6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! 7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; 8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. 9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.

Not everyone has gone through the things we have. Not everyone was called for this specific time and purpose. So don’t listen to those murmuring, complaining or those trying to give you advice on what you should do when they haven’t been through the wilderness season like you have. They don’t get it. They don’t see the gut-wrenching pain you’ve been through and quite honestly they don’t understand it.

Our wilderness seasons have been long and hard. They have brought us to our knees in tears; wondering “why God why” and “when God when”. God is calling all of us to look to Him for victory. We have the victory no matter what our lives look like. It doesn’t matter what has been lost, stolen or what our lives look like at the moment. Trust and believe in Him. Praise Him for who He is and watch Him transform your life into something more amazing than ever imagined. His ways are far greater than ours. So don’t trust the naysayers or their guidance.

Our Heavenly Father loves us very much and has seen what’s come against us. Don’t give up, don’t lose hope and praise Him in the middle of your situation right now. He’s doing mighty things and wants you to praise Him even before you see the situation change.

Praise up, look up and never forget…everything that has been done against you was done against your Heavenly Father. He wants your situations to change more than you do. But will you give Him the Glory when they change? Let Him know right now that you will give Him all the praise and glory even before things change. He wants you restored, successful and victorious. Praise Him right now and watch your victories come to pass. Hallelujah Praise the Lord for He is good, loving, caring and the Creator of the Universe. He is worthy to be praised!

What To Do When

God doesn’t work on our schedules. We think we know when we need something, how we should receive it, or even what we should be doing with it. But what happens when we try to do things our way only to find ourselves in some deep troubled waters?

Your life may be spiraling out of control right now. Your health may be deteriorating. Your friends and family might have left and you feel all alone. Your co-workers and boss might be mistreating you. You may not be able to pay the bills. So what are you to do?

I know it sounds crazy but it all means that you are in a prime position for a mighty move of God in your life. When everything is going wild, crazy and simply don’t make sense in your life, then you have two choices (1) try to do things your way or (2) Stop, drop and wait upon the Lord.

No matter what the circumstance looks like, your best option is number 2. You’ve already tried doing things your way and it’s not working. You’ve tried praying about them or trying to run away from the very things God is using to change your life. He doesn’t want to just fix the problem, He wants to fix you inside out.

Think about it this way…if God just fixed every problem, would you need any faith to believe? If God just handed you a million dollars, would you really know how to use it correctly or would you end up being in worse shape when the million dollars slipped through your hands?

God’s ways are much higher than ours. He wants us whole and complete. Sometimes the only way He can truly fix us is by having us go through some deep, dark troubles. It brings us back to Him. It makes us stand on faith and seek Him in deeper ways. It takes all the crude out of us and places the beauty of the Lord within.

So if you are going through some tough times right now make sure to stop, drop and wait upon the Lord. Let Him do a complete and finished work in your life. It may be tough and painful but when you come out on the other side, you will have the tools you need to accomplish the amazing future He has in store for you.

God loves you too much and your purpose in life is too valuable to not have you prepared. Whatever you do, don’t despise the troubles. Seek Him to reveal the reason behind the difficult season. Ask Him what needs to change within you in order to walk into the VICTORY He has for you. Be primed, willing and able to walk into your mighty purpose. God knows exactly when to bring it, how to bring it, and He will be right on time.
