Don’t See Yourself Small and Insignificant

God has created you for a purpose and with a purpose. You are not an accident or an incident. You are loved by God! You have something the world needs. Discover and appreciate your God given gifts. Make the decision today not to allow people, possessions or lack thereof, or problems define who you are. Your value and worth must not be in the hands of another. They may not recognize your true value and worth. You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God.

Make the decision today not to despise where you are. Where you are in life is just a moment in time. Today make the choice not to allow it to become a monument.

 

Today is a new day to begin a new journey in life. Jesus came that you may have life and have it more abundantly. Do not put your life on hold. Ask God to open your eyes to see his abundance that He has for you. Begin to live in the abundance of God’s presence, love, peace, joy and wholeness because He has so much more for you.

This is your year. Make it what you desire it to be from your heart.

Romans 10:9-10

Merry Christmas- God’s Gift To You

ecard-camels

Christmas gifts come in all shapes and sizes.—there are gifts to be wrapped, both to give and receive. However, there is no greater gift than the heavenly Father’s, who freely gave His only Son to be born as a baby destined for the Cross and to save us from our sins. He came to give us abundant life and eternal life.

Merry Christmas

Merry- delightful. pleasant, agreeable, jovial, laughter

Why is It Merry? Because of the second word Christmas

Christmas is a time of great joy for celebrating the miraculous birth of our wonderful Savior.

Isaiah 9:6a For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;

Luke 2:11 

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Matthew 1:18-21 

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.

20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

 Luke 2:10-14 

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.

11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”[

Romans 5:7-8                                                                                                                                       “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom. 5:7-8)

God’s Gift to You – His Son Jesus Christ

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17)

I encourage you to receive God’s love gift for you. Pray this prayer and receive His Son Jesus Christ in your heart:

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.

The Word of God says “Whosoever call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13). I believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that He died on the Cross for my sins, and that He rose from the dead on the third day.

I ask Jesus right now to come into my heart. I repent of my sins and I surrender myself completely to you. I confess you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for making me a new person and forgiving me of my sins. In Jesus Name, Amen.

 

Have a Merry Christ-mas.

Worship The One Who Created You

God has created you in his image and after his likeness. God knew you before you entered your mother’s womb. God created you with a purpose and for a purpose. God loves you with an everlasting love. God is looking for you to be a worshipper of Him. God desires you to be a true worshipper.

The Bible states in John 4 that there was a woman who had five failed relationships. She encountered five failed marriages, yet that did not stop Jesus from seeing her with the eyes of love. She did not allow her past failures hinder her from receiving love from Christ. Jesus taught her about worship and she received the Word on Worship. Worship has many definitions.

Worship – The Greek words for “worship” in this verse is Proskuneo. Pros means in the direction of or towards, and kuneo is a word for kiss. It is a word of warm affection. Worship is showing affection to God.                                                                     

There is an English word worship that originates from an Old English word “worthship,” which was a word that denoted the worthiness of the one receiving the special honor or devotion. Worship is giving God his due worth.

Worship is giving God his due worth. To esteem to the worth, awe, adoration

Psalms 29:2                                                                                                                                   Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

When you worship you give “worth” to something. It is to tell what it is worth. When you give to God something that is worth something to you- you are telling God you are worth more to me than the something you gave to God.

Worship is giving God all that you are and all that you have. Worship is receiving God’s love and responding to His love by serving Him with all of your passion through the gifts and talents that God has given you that will bring Him Honor.

Thanksgiving

History of Thanksgiving
Our founding father of America, George Washington, acknowledge God’s purpose of thanksgiving over this great nation. In October 1879 he made this humble declaration. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will to grateful for his benefits, and humbly implore His protection and favor- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee to requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a Day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of the Almighty God especially by affording them and opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Thanksgiving must have its root inside of you before it can bear fruit on the outside.
Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude.
Thanksgiving is an attitude of appreciation and gratitude to God for something received from Him or for what He has done.

Three Reasons Why I Give God Thanks

I am thankful to God for sending His Only Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me. For God so the loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I am thankful that I can experience the good life that God has planned for me before I was even born.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

I am thankful that the quality of life I can live now is better than the kind of life the world has to offer me. Jesus said “I have come that they may have life, and that they have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Romans 10:9-10

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
