“The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will not fear, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”  (Psalm 23)

VICTORIOUS THROUGH TRIALS

July 8, 2018

“Consider it wholly joyful my brethren, whenever you encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations.  Be assured and understand that the trial and providing of your faith bring out endurance, steadfastness and patience.”

According to this scripture, trials and temptations are designed to try your faith.  That is, to see if you really believe and trust in the promises of God.  As you go through the trial or temptation, you will either falter in your faith (belief and trust in God) or grow in your faith (belief and trust in God).  Moreover, as you grow in faith, you grow in longsuffering (endurance) perseverance (steadfastness) and patience (waiting expectantly).

We must engage in spiritual warfare using spiritual weapons.  These weapons are not carnal, but spiritual.  (II Corinthians 10:3-4)  We must use (put on) the Armor of God as outlined in (Ephesians 6:10-18).  Out of the whole armor of God, the Sword of the Spirit is the most powerful because it is the Word of God. (Hebrews 4:12)

Therefore, when you speak the Word of God with faith, you are cutting down the sickness, oppression, discouragement, doubt and unbelief, and deception – demonic forces that plague you with.

Remember, “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and wickedness in high places.”  (Ephesians 6:12)  When the devil came to Jesus and tried to tempt him, Jesus said in (Matthew 4:4) “. . . it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”  The devil tried to tempt Jesus a second time when he took Jesus into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down; for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee:  and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.  Jesus said unto the devil, “It is written again Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”  (Matthew 4:5-7)

The devil tried to tempt Jesus a third time when he took Jesus into a high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and said unto him, all these things will I give thee if thou will fall down and worship me.  Then Jesus said to the devil, “Get thee hence, Satan:  for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  Then the devil left him, and angels came and ministered unto him.”  (Matthew 4:10-11)

Notice that after Jesus Christ confessed the Word of God, the devil could no longer tempt Him, and he departed (left) Jesus.  The same thing occurs, when we confess the Word of God, with faith believing and trusting in the Word we have confessed.  The plots and tactics (trials and/or temptations) terminate (end) and we are victorious (the winner).

We are to glory (be joyous) in tribulations because the tribulations enhance patience, and patience experience, and experience hope.  (Romans 5:3-4)  Hope in the power and strength of the Word of God.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”  (Romans 8:25)

Tribulations and temptations we experience in our lives work for our good by:

  1. Increasing our faith (belief, trust and confident reliance on God and His Word;
  2. Strengthening us spiritually; and
  3. Giving us a testimony to testify of the goodness, grace, and mercy of God, and the victorious power of the Word of God.

When we confess the Word of God we overcome the devil and all of his evil plots, plans, and schemes, and are VICTORS IN JESUS CHRIST.  We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:37)  So when tribulations and temptations come, know that God is with you and will deliver you if you confess (speak) the Word of God with faith believing and trusting.

Scriptures to meditate on:

Psalm 9:9                                 Isaiah 26:3-4

Psalm 37:5                               Matthew 21:22

Proverbs 3:5-7                         Mark 9:23

Proverbs 29:5                          Mark 11:23-26

Trust Me and I Will Bring it to Pass

June 29, 2018

 

Think Small and You’ll Stay Small

Magnify the solution – GOD’S WORD

My people are in survival mode and it is not God’s Best.  Ruling and reigning is God’s Best.

There is a difference between survival and overcoming.  When God restores HE does not bring back to original condition.

Restoration – Multiply; increase; improve, and make better.

God is unlimited, but man can limit Him by continually asking can God do . . . Say “God Can”.

God wants me to remove the limitations I’ve placed on God and myself.

Desire – intense longing; it is easy to imagine myself having it.  I will go into action and will not quit until I possess it.

Process is as follows:

See it in the Word.

  1. Seeing it causes you to desire it.
  2. Imagine having it in my thoughts.
  3. I believe I receive it when I pray.
  4. I shall have it.

I’m increasing my ability to receive by increasing my thinking.  If I can conceive it, I can receive it.

I can shape for myself a better future by reshaping my thoughts NOW!!!

Poverty – a mental and spiritual disease.  What destroys the poor man is his inability to see himself any other way but poor.

My life tends to go in the direction of my most dominant thoughts.

If you can’t imagine it, you’ll never experience it.  Negative imaginations attract negative situations.  You get in life exactly what you sow, and it begins with a thought, idea, and concept.

Most successful people are those who have acquired the ability to see the possible although it looks impossible.The greater your capacity to see possibilities, where others see impossibilities, then the greater your success will be.

Scripture References:

Matthew 19:26

Mark 9:23

Psalm 78:41, 12-15

Trust in the Source and Not the Resource

June 15, 2018

Jesus Christ is the Source for ALL your needs –  Your Need for Love, Comfort, Encouragement, Health, Wealth, and Prosperity.

He will liberally supply all of your needs.  That is, He will supply far more than what you need.  However, you must have faith in the Word of God.

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Phillippians 4:13)

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Phillipians 4:13)

Let’s face it, men and women will fail you.  They will not always be there when you need them.  Some are never their when you need them. But God, the Almighty God, Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Asani, will always be there when you need Him.  God is always there when you need Him.  God is always there when you don’t think you need Him.

“He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.”  (Psalm 91:15)

TRUST IN ME

Trust in me with all of your heart.

Trust in me and you will never fall apart.

Acknowledge me in all of your ways,

And you will have sweet peace all of your days.

I am the truth and the way.

Stand and obey my Word and you won’t stray.

Trust in me with all of your mind,

And spiritual treasures of wisdom and revelation you will find.

  1. When your relationship decomposes, who will love you?
  2. When you lose your mom and dad, brother or sister, who will comfort you?
  3. When you are discouraged, who will encourage you?
  4. When you are sick, who will heal you?
  5. When you are poor and need money, who will give you power to get wealth?
  6. When you are in despair and defeated, who will prosper you?

 

The Answer to ALL These Questions is God.

He is the truth, the way, and the life, and He wants you to have an abundant life filled with love, joy, and peace.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

So set your mind on God and His promises, and mediate on them day and night.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” (Joshua 1:8)

Seeking the Face of God

May 25, 2018

When we seek God’s Face, we behold beauty and glory,

which takes us beyond the tallest building story.

Walking, running, and yielding toward God’s way

on the straight and narrow path we will stay.

A path full of love, joy, peace, and blessings,

if we are faithful to trust God through our testings.

O God, faithful and true,

thanks for leading and guiding us always to you.

The God of Possibility

May 18, 2018

. . . with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

Possible – capable of existing; being true, being accomplished; being used for a particular purpose.

There are many benefits to trusting God, and putting our faith in His Word.  As we continue to  feast on the Word, it penetrates our hearts and minds, renewing them, and thereby changing our thoughts and attitudes.

The more we feast on the Word, the quicker the limits we place on God will be removed.  Limits that have been implanted through:

  1. Unbelief, doubt, and worry;
  2. Believing what others say about God;
  3. The indoctrinalization by parents and other persons of influence; and
  4. Walking according to our own imagination and feelings.

God wants us to remove the limits because as we place limits on His ability to fulfill His promises, we correspondingly place limits on our receiving the fullness of our blessings and our ability to fulfill our God-given purposes.

When we remove the limits through reading, studying, and meditating on the Word of God, we can soar like an eagle through the sky.  We can know with assurance through the most difficult circumstances, that “God is able to do the impossible.”

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust:  his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. (Psalm 91:4)

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Be not wise in thine own  eyes:  fear the Lord, and depart from evil. (Proverbs 3:5-7)

Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God.  They are bowed down and fallen, but we are risen and stand upright.  (Psalm 20:7-8)

By trusting in God we:

  1. Receive strength mightier than the Rock of Gibraltar;
  2. Receive joy that is everlasting through God’s everlasting presence;
  3. Receive our heart’s desire;
  4. Receive blessings to be a blessing.
  5. Receive a crown of pure gold, representing the purity of our heart, mind, and soul.
  6. Receive long life.
  7. Receive great glory.
  8. Receive splendor and majesty.

When we trust in God unreservedly (without an ounce of doubt), we place ourselves in a “Risen” position and remain there.  However, once doubt creeps in, we immediately begin to fall away, our faith begins to weaken, and we begin to lose sight of God and His purposes for our lives

WE MUST STAY FOCUSED and REMOVE THE LIMITS IN OUR LIVES.
