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.

What You Need To Know About God

Who is God? What is His Character like? Why should we care? Why do we have to go through these things?

Sometimes, you have to go back to the revelation of who God is before you can move forward. God is very tactical about this and He will create a situation for a revelation. What do I mean?

First…let’s determine what the Bible says about God.

For verifiable Biblical Scriptures regarding the above statements click here

Now that we’ve established who God is and what He’s like, it’s important for us to know that everything that happens in our lives has a reason and purpose. The things you went through had to happen. You had to survive! You had to make it! You had to believe you’re more than a conqueror through Christ! You had to hold onto I’m healed by His stripes, I am the head and not the tail, I am above and not below. You had to hold on when no one else would! You had to believe when all others were walking away from you.

Don’t listen to the naysayers that surround you. Don’t lean on people who can’t believe or trust in where God is taking you. Through it all, God was and is determined to prove His power and presence in your life.

Get off the “Why?” land. You don’t need a reason! Instead let God give you a revelation. He will open whatever doors that are needed for you to flourish into your destiny. And when all things happen in God’s perfect timing, those naysayers will start asking questions giving you an amazing opportunity of sharing God’s love through your own personal testimony. It will be a glorious day when you save souls through the goodness God showed you through it all! He can and will make your restoration come forth! Don’t give up. Keep pushing forward till you see His Victory in your life!

Watch Pastor Steven Furtick bring this incredible teaching to life. It will change the way you see things!

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 vote counts. Every person you can impact today counts. Every moment you spend with Jesus counts. It’s time for action! Are you ready?

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!

God’s Blessings

Isn’t it amazing how quickly we can forget the incredible blessings that that God has given us? Once we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we tend to struggle very heavily in our minds. Being bombarded by negative thoughts and doubts; leading us into stress and worry. We think it sounds great in the Bible yet we doubt that it could happen in our lives today. However, God is not a respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34)

Every single day, we need to remind ourselves that if God said it…then, it will be done. There are no “ifs or buts” about it. No matter what we are facing, God gave us the answer. All we need to do is begin believing that whatever He did in the Bible, He can and will do for us in our lives today!

Let’s take a closer look at what God has to say…

God's Benefits

So, when you are feeling down and nothing seems to be going right…REMEMBER, His precious gifts!

What do you need today?

  • You need healing, it’s yours.
  • You need Divine protection, it’s yours.
  • You need favor, it’s yours.
  • You need a miracle, it’s yours.
  • You need forgiveness, it’s yours.

God loves us more than we could ever imagine and He wants us to live a REWARDING and SUCCESSFUL life.

Simply ASK – TRUST – and BELIEVE! God will provide anything you need! Now, it may not happen when you want it to or in the way you would like. However, God will provide in His perfect timing and in His perfect way! So take the limitations off God and let Him be your source in every area of your life. Stand firm, keep believing, and it will be done. We serve a very BIG GOD and He will not disappoint you!
