HALLOWEEN & JESUS CHRIST

October 31, 2016

This morning in my prayer time, I decided to ask the Lord several questions that I sincerely wanted answers for. One of them was strikingly different from all of the rest, however I felt a peace in my heart when asking him this question. What you are about to read is my dialogue with the Lord about Halloween.

You Have Not Because You Ask Not…

I wrote a few petitions to present to Jehovah God while in your personal prayer time. The Scriptures were written to guide us in all things to include our prayers. Open your heart and ask with full transparency and sincerity. Surely, God hears the cries of his children and I believe goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life.

Trusting God

There will be times when your faith will be rocked to the core, your vision becomes blurry and your understanding of simple matters become too difficult to for you. Ever experienced a season like this? It’s during these times – these hard times, that your character becomes tested and your belief in the one true God gets tried by fire. What happens during the testing of your faith is what will determine what you become equipped for in the future. The testing of your faith produces endurance! What do you do when your name, family and career have been chosen as an specific assignments by satan and his cohorts? What do you down when you notice the bank account balance is getting low and you might not have enough to pay monthly expenses to keep the lights and heat on and food on the table?

Here’s what you do: Continue reading “Trusting God”

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”

Fighting the Fire of Offense

Backburning

Spiritually speaking, one cannot fight fire with fire. However in the natural, when firemen battle wild and ranging forest fires they have several methods of fighting against the threat. Some use a method known as Fuel Reduction and others use Back Burning. Fuel reduction is the targeted burning of bushland to control fire behavior. The idea is to reduce the intensity of subsequent fires at the same place by removing fine surface fuels such as leaf litter. Reducing these hazards increases the window of opportunity for fire fighters to control bushfires. Back burning is a technique utilized in controlled burning and during wildfire events. While controlled burns utilize back burning during planned fire events to create a “black line”, back burning or backfiring is also done to stop a wildfire that is already in progress. Back burning is a way of reducing the amount of flammable material during a controlled burn or wildfire by starting small fires along a man made or natural firebreak in front of a main fire front. It is called back burning because the small fires are designed to ‘burn back towards the main fire front’ and are usually burning and traveling against ground level winds.

A Christian’s War

For the average Christian, strategy in how to stay alive is not a daily request during prayer. It’s a common misconception amongst the evangelicals, and quite frankly unheard of amongst the practical thinkers. “Ask for strategy, who me?” Yes you, ask the living Spirit of God, the Spirit of Wisdom for strategy on how to survive daily attacks from the unseen enemy. The enemy spoken of is the enemy of the Christian faith, satan.

Long before I knew I was in the middle of a war, I understood there was something not quite right with the way I’d handle certain matters. I would respond too quickly with emotions that seemed to stem from an offense unbeknown to me, was somehow festering within me. How could I justify my actions if I did not know the source? Fast forward, now I find myself asking the Holy Spirit for counsel on a host of matters involving my most inner self. It’s within the confined fibers of the human heart where the combat zone dwells while the battlefield rages inside of the mind. Continue reading “A Christian’s War”

Doorsteps

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

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”
