Why Suicide Is Never The Answer

man-in-hoody-praying-small

When I hear of someone committing suicide it is very sad and disappointing. They have robbed the world of their presence and gifts that God had given them. I say to myself they did not have to die because someone already died for them. I wonder did the person know that? Although, if you or someone that you know may be experiencing the emotions of aloneness, hopelessness, frustration, anger, embarrassment, guilt, or shame that is never the reason to end it all. Even if you or your loved one have experienced a broken heart as a result of tragedy or loss of loved ones those emotions are real and there is a real solution that will help you work through what you are going through.

You or someone that you know may be in a dark place or going through a dark place, but you or your loved one does not have to continue spiraling down emotionally or do things that are more harmful than helpful. The person that has already died for you is Jesus Christ. He knows exactly how you and your loved one feels right now. He has already been in a dark place when he died and took the keys of death, hell and the grave from the enemy of your soul (satan). Who is the father of all lies. The enemy wants everyone who is made in the image and likeness of God to believe his lies when he tries to convince people there is no way out of your situation and God is only a figment of their imagination. The enemy of your soul knows if you ever connect with Jesus and give your heart to Him and receive His love you or your loved ones life will be forever changed. Romans 10:9-10

The enemy knows he will be defeated in your life when you or your loved one replaces his lies with the truth of God’s Word concerning yourself.

Jesus Christ loves you and your loved ones and died for you and them. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life according to John 14:6.

You already have an inheritance that Christ died for that you may experience now in this lifetime. It all begins when you or your loved one receive Jesus in your heart.

There are benefits of the inheritance that is waiting for you. Such as peace in the midst of a turmoil, joy for sorrow, strength to overcome weakness power to overcome fear, fruitfulness where is their lack, health and wholeness, and blessings. I want to pray for you that God will direct and lead you to get more help and become and fulfill your God given purpose of your existence. You are loved, valuable and the gifts that God has given are needed to uplift, encourage, and make a change for the better in this world. If you have not accepted Christ in your life please allow me to have this moment with you to repeat this prayer of receiving Christ in your life.

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the Name of Jesus. Your word says, Whoever

Shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”, and If thou shall confess with thy mouth and believe in thine heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13, Romans 10:9).

I take you at the Word. I am calling on Jesus right now. I confess that Jesus is Lord. And I believe you raised Him from the dead. I am asking you to come into my heart. Take control of my life and help me be the person you want me to be. I repent of my sins and surrender myself totally and completely to you. I accept you and confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for making me a new person and forgiving me of my sins. I receive by faith the gift of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. Amen.

I encourage you to declare over your life.                                                                          Heavenly Father, you said in the Word of God that you love me with everlasting love and with lovingkindness have you drawn me. Jeremiah 31:3

Lord help me to know, embrace and encounter your amazing love you have for me. When I feel like giving up – I choose not to embrace the lies of the enemy, nor the negative images he try to get me think about.

I choose to think on things that are true honest just pure, lovely and of a good report and the things I learned and received and heard about God and his plan for my life. (Philippians 4:8)

I received the daily benefits that you have given for me. Psalms 68:19

Heavenly Father, You have a master plan for my life I choose to agree with your plan I come against every self sabotage thought, word, and action. You are my Source and my Supply. You are everything I need you to be right now and always.

I choose to embrace your Ways and your ways are peace, pleasantness and promotion for my life. (Proverbs 3:16)

I thank you for the gift of life. I shall experience the abundant life that you promise me to the full till it overflows. John 10:10 Amplified Bible

I choose to think in agreement of your Word. I choose to walk in agreement of your Word, so by the act of my will I choose to walk in the favor, the joy, and the blessings of God every day because God is good and something good is going to happen for me , in me, and through me every day of my life.

I know that to be true because you demonstrated your love for me by sending your only Son Jesus Christ who shed his blood and give his life

So I can enjoy my life in Christ.                                                                                                                                                      I thank you for the people you will bring in my life that are expressions of your love who teach me more about You and who I am in Christ.

Lord help me always to remember My Life has meaning and purpose I am valuable because if not you have not allowed me to be born and you have a Master plan for my life.

In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

Space Between Us

share_1464204213

I saw this movie entitled “The Space Between Us”. The movie is about a boy name Gardner who was conceived by his mother on Mars.There on Mars he developed a chatmate friendship relationship with a girl named Tulsa. Eventually he got a chance to come to earth and meet and spend time with his friend Tulsa. Their time together was quite amusing.
Several insight s I gathered from the movie.

Gardner envisioned meeting his friend and distance was not going to stop him.
Gardner prepared himself for the moment and what he was going to say when the moment arrives.God give you window of opportunities. You prepare today for opportunities tomorrow.
Gardner did not where he was going but he was willing to ask questions to get to where he wanted to go. Don’t let uncharted or unfamiliar territory stop you from seeking new horizons. Be willing to get out of your comfort zone in your thinking and living to experience new adventures. Faith enables you to make new journeys in life.

Gardner enjoyed what we can take for granted. Don’t take what’s in your world, friends, family,your surroundings for granted. Someone has less than what you have and may possibly have a better attitude inspite of having less. Be thankful for what you do have and more shall be given.

Gardner would have not seen his loved one had not made the decision to make the first step of what initially was impossible, that became a reality in his life.
Gardner’s choice to come to earth brought others together that needed each other.

Love is not bound by space or time.Space can be defined as distance or interval between two points. No more no less. Remember, what you do or accomplish in the time spent together with loved ones is what really makes all the difference. Make the most of each moment.

Romans 10:9-10Space Between Us

“God has Your Inheritance Package Waiting For You”

“God has Your Inheritance Package Waiting For You” Seven Fold Inheritance Package
Revelation 5:10-12 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

Power- Christ received power for us. Christ gave power to us the church. What do you need power for?
Because the wicked forces of the enemy cannot stop the Work of God. The enemy has no choice to respect the power of God.
Power is the language the enemy understand and respects.
Psalms 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

Power is only available to those who are born of God. Until a person receives Jesus as the Son of God, you don’t have access to the power of God.

John 1:12 ( New Birth is the first step into your inheritance of power) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
The day you receive Christ in your heart you have entered in the realm of covenant power. Everything about you becomes new. You are a child of power. Power is the foundation of your new life in Christ Jesus.
When a believer do not know this they are at the mercy of the circumstance, crisis, and every hardship they face in life.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Once you get saved,(born again) you become a power loaded individual. Salvation take you from a place of weakness trying to overcome issues, habits in your own strength to a place of power.

New birth confers on you the power of God. It is time to stop allowing the enemy to bully or harass you with fear tactics, his lies about you to destroy self image and self esteem, his lies about your family, health, business, etc.

Luke 10:19, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Whatever has been place in your path to hurt you I declare it is crushed right in Jesus Name.

Whatever scheme, devise, plot of the enemy to get sidetrack, distracted, offended, to derail, discourage you in the things of God for your life, family, work, business will not succeed anymore in Jesus name.

I declare you will not be ignorant to any of devices he sought to attempt to use directly or indirectly against you in Jesus Name.
You need power to accomplish God’s vision assignment on our lives. You cannot fulfill God’s mandate in your own human wisdom and strength. Zechariah 4:6
The Word of God says you receive power when you ask and receive the Holy Spirit. Luke 11:13 Jesus said….. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Stay thirsty and hungry for God and the things of God and your needs will be met.
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Psalms 63:1-2 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Isaiah 44:3
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

Romans 10:9-10

“I Have An Inheritance”

“I Have An Inheritance”
Who is the source of my inheritance. Once I know and identify the source I can know what to expect. God is the source of my inheritance.
God is the source of my inheritance.
God told Abram to look as far as north, south, east, and west- and as far as he can see God will give it to him and to His seed forever. Genesis 13:14-15
Galatians 3:29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Romans 4:13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all

II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Romans 8:17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
I also became a heir of God and Joint heir of Christ.
What is a Heir-One who is entitled to possess; To inherit; to take possession of an estate of inheritance, after the death of the ancestor;
We give the title to a person who is to inherit after the death of an ancestor A man’s children are his heirs.

Acts 26:18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
I obtain my inheritance through the Word of God.

Acts 20:32 “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. (set apart).
God is the source of my inheritance.
God reveal His character right from the beginning of the Bible. We know who God is and what God does. From the creation- Genesis 1:4,10, 12, 18,21, 25, 31.

God is my source of my inheritance who is a good God and does only good things. God is a good God and he only does good things.
God’s goodness did not stop at creation. God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
God’s nature is good. God is good and the enemy is bad. God is a good God.

Psalms 107:1, 136:1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Psalms 34:8 We are invited to embrace and experience God for ourselves. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
taste – has to do with experience. see- has to do with perception. What you allow yourself to experience will change your perception of God as well as yourself and world. Then you see God is Good to me, for me and for others.

Even when things are contrary to what you desire or negative situations or environment you encounter- you will not blame God for it.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28 Amp. Bible

God is a loving Father and he teach us through His Word. He corrects us, discipline us, exhort us – but as a good Loving Father.
Hebrew 12:5-7 (Message Bible) And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives. 7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?
My dear child, don’t shrug off God’s discipline, but don’t be crushed by it either.
It’s the child he loves that he disciplines; the child he embraces, he also corrects. God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out.
He’s treating you as dear children. Only irresponsible parents leave children to fend for themselves. Would you prefer an irresponsible God? But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best.
At the time, discipline isn’t much fun. It always feels like it’s going against the grain. Later, of course, it pays off handsomely, for it’s the well-trained who find themselves mature in their relationship with God.
Psalms 16:6 (KJV)
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. (NKJV) The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance.
You do not have a bad heritage, but a good one. You do not have a pitiful heritage but a good one. You do not have sickly heritage but a good one. You do not have a broke heritage but a good one.
Whatever is not good in my life did not come from God so resend it back to the sender- kingdom of darkness.

Whatever that cannot be said good -God is not source. If it is not good than it is not God because God is always good.
God does not withhold good from you. Psalms 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

Luke 12:31-32 But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.32 “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Jesus is the King and in his Kingdom – Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Psalms 86:5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.

Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
Matt. 13:24-30 A man sowed good seeds in the field, while he slept, his enemy sowed tares in the same field. When his servants asked him, Sir did you not sow good seed in your field? Why is it growing tares? he replied and enemy has done this. So whatever is not good in my life is a work of the enemy. God’s solution for me is Jesus! I John 3:8 ….For this purpose was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (Undo, loosen, reverse)
Don’t be deceived into mistaking your present condition for your portion. Don’t settle for that being your portion.

My portion in God is established in the scriptures. Psalms 119:89 Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven.
God’s Word is powerful to do for me and through me God’s good pleasure.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
God and His Word is One in the same. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
God love you. God is for you. Psalmist said .. when my mother and father forsake me the Lord shall lift me up.

Rather reach out in faith and lay hold to God’s Word and watch God turn things around for me. Luke 21:13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

God is a good God and He only does good things. John 3:16 So God so loved the world
Romans 5:8
Today God want to open a new chapter in your life.

Receive God our Heavenly Father’s love . Give your heart to Jesus.
Let God heal help you and heal you. Jesus is the Healer of the Broken hearted.

Romans 10:9-10

He Is Coming

One day the one who loves the very ground you walk on, the one who loves you unconditionally with no strings attached is coming back to the earth. That person is Christ Jesus. He desires you to be apart of His family. He does not force His love on anyone.Some people reject His love and many receive His love. You can receive His love today. Simply, you receive His love by giving Him your heart.

Revelation 19:11-16
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

Hero

Who is your hero? You are some persons hero and you may not even know it. Often times when we think of the word hero we think in terms of rescuing someone from a near death experience. That is heroic. When someone risks their life to save another person. But, when I think of Jesus Christ who gave His life to save and to rescue mankind from self destruction as well as eternal damnation. Jesus the Hero came to give mankind eternal life and abundant life here on earth. That is heroic in a place of none other.
When I think of heroes I think also of my family. Certainly I thank God for my parents, my siblings, my wife who in different seasons of my life did heroic acts on my behalf. I thank God that none had to be a near death situation, however it was a defining moment and it changed and enhanced my life for the better. So I say they are my heroes. Trust me I have many more.
I would like to know who are your heroes of love? Have you told them? If so I encourage you to do so.
I notice when people rescue people from a burning car, rescue people from a house on fire, or rescue someone who is drowning they simply say I was just doing my job. Or they say I just happen to be at the right place at the right time. They often do not think of themselves as someone’s hero.
Maybe you have not rescued someone out of burning car or house, someone drowning in a lake, pool or river. Again those are no doubt heroic acts.
However, if you stepped over the line of your comfort zone, did an unselfish act for someone, met a financial need, gave of your time to listen to someone who was distressed, discouraged, depressed, comfort someone who lost a loved one, gave of yourself, gave needed wisdom that changed the direction of a person’s life for the better than you are a Hero!
I say thank you for doing what you did and being someone’s hero. Someone who may never say it but knows that your life and your actions made a world difference in their lives.

Make This Your Comeback Year

You crown the year with Your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance.     (Psalms 65:11)

This is my year to see setbacks turn into comebacks!

“Comeback” is actually a single word meaning, “A regaining of success, fame, health, prosperity, recovery, to return to a former good position, high rank, or condition after a loss,the act of making up a deficit as in a contest or game.”

A “Comeback Story” is one in which someone succeeds against impossible odds, often through overcoming a time of struggle. It is the “come from behind” story that has everyone cheering.

It is the person who has failed time and again finally triumphing and attaining the victory and success.

It is the underdog who may have suffered many losses and heartbreaking defeat, who through determination rises above every barrier and obstacle to obtain the prize. It is going from a position of being broken down to a position of breaking through!

Moses was a murderer and a fugitive who became a deliverer and was known as a friend of God.

Joseph was the dreamer, forgotten in prison in a foreign land, who became the prime minister of the greatest empire of the day.

Job lost everything, yet God restored double of ALL that was lost.

Peter denied Christ three times but was used by God to preach to win 3000 souls on the day of Pentecost.

Jesus—the greatest comeback story of them all—was beaten, crucified and killed, yet conquered death, hell and the grave and came back to life and is now seated with honor at the right hand of God! Wow!

Receive the grace of God that will enable you to make every month of this  year part of your comeback year. I will love to hear and read your comeback story.
