I’m declaring mighty blessings over your life today in the authority of the name of Jesus Christ. May every territory you step into adjust to accommodate your presence as a child of The Most High God.
I speak life over you this day and declare Psalm 118:17 over every area of you have been given charge over within your life. May every supernatural blessing released from the breath of God find you and smother you until it overflows onto all others standing near your presence. Continue reading “Speak Life”
Here is an open letter written before Your eyes for all to participate in the edifying of Your existence. You are a remarkably faithful God who keeps covenants with all who enter into solemn promise with you. You extend the lives of the hurting so they might experience Your hands and feet through Your servants here on earth. Your heart moves with compassion for the lost, even though Your Word cannot be defiled or replaced. All will speak the words you have written, “Jesus Christ is Lord!”
Father, this new year is like thousands of others which began with a first day full of joy and laughter, as well as hopeful plans and bright resolutions. Many have begun this year in prayer while on their knees. They’ve prayed to a god, even if it was not you-The Most High God. Continue reading “My Open Letter”
Father, today is a new day. One in which you have new mercies and joy available for me. Give me … Continue reading It’s A New Day
“The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity (sickness, disease, weakness) but a wounded spirit who can bear?” Proverbs 18:14
What is transparency? Is it that section of your speech where you “feel” you’re being open, honest and vulnerable? I believe it’s that place that one goes to where every thing is unveiled to God without reservation. It’s that place where there’s no more murmuring, complaining or blaming but more so ownership. Transparency is what I choose to call a destination, an action, or even a description of oneself.
I often ask myself, why aren’t more people completely transparent with God? Don’t they realize he sees everything, hears every thought and lives everywhere? I believe this word sums up the answer to these questions: Self-Preservation.
God is not looking for the perfect role model, the most secure men or humblest of women. He wants you and all of your imperfections to trust Him. Trust him when you don’t have the answers and need them. Trust him when you have a deadline and still have not been given guidance. He can be trusted with all of your present, past and yes even future mess, but only if you’ll be totally transparent with Him. Whether you whisper, speak, cry, scream or say nothing at all…he still hears your thoughts and longs for them to be completely transparent.
Transparency is when you and God really get down to business. Continue reading “Transparency”
Each entry into a doorway requires a person to either step up or down in order to pass “through”. Regardless if the person is immobile and forced to utilize mechanical help, or solicit the assistance of genuine bystanders. The doorway is a means to enter into or exit from one location to another. The doorsteps of your life can be stumbling blocks for your mission if not carefully measured.
I submit to you, it is imperative where you place your feet when in motion towards your next season. Your destiny does not wait for you to position your feet in perfectly aligned places in order to get there faster. No, your destiny awaits your motivation to stay on the right track. How often have you been distracted from a dream or vision you once held? How many new-year resolutions have you begun only to experience sheer failure less than one month into the new-year? Watching what you align your steps to, means you’re watching how you’re getting to your destiny. Continue reading “Doorsteps”
Time is inconsequential. It’s relative to what is done with it and how it is used. Other than that it doesn’t quite matter. On Thursday, the Holy Spirit moved me to pay attention to the seasons and time then consider what they’re both telling me. Tell me this, would you be able to decipher what season you were in if you wore a mask? The answer would probably be yes. I certainly can tell by the temperature when it is winter, or the sun blazing on my skin when it is summer, but how about Spring or Fall? Here’s my point, if you were not accustomed to the seasons of your life would you be able to pinpoint exactly which season you were in? Think about that.
Without proper guidance and direction if you wore a mask wouldn’t you agree, confusion and lack of awareness would be prevalent? The mask I am referring to in this post is a spiritual one, often placed on you without your knowledge or awareness. The adversary (satan) enjoys slipping on “spiritual masks” over your spiritual eyes in order to prevent you from recognizing what season you are truly in. Continue reading “Time”
