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

What Is In The Word For You

What is in the Word? First I want you know The Word is the Word of God or the Bible. To answer the question the Word contain solutions for life. The Word of God is God’s love letter to mankind. The Word is a timeless book. The Word of God is the master key of life. It is a manual. It is a “how to” book. Whatever your needs or challenges are you can discover how to handle what you are experiencing in life. Solutions for marriage, family challenges, wisdom for life, parenting, finances, peace, restoration, health, business, just to name a few topics.
You may feel like that man who was reading a passage but needed someone to give him understanding. Acts 8: It is my prayer that God will lead you to the right place where you can get sound biblical answers to your questions in life.

It is also my prayer that before you read the Bible you should pray “Lord open up my eyes that I may see wonderful things out of your law(Word.)Psalms 119:18 It is also my prayer as you sit down you will make discoveries in God’s Word that whatever you lost will be recovered. Proverbs 24:14
The Word of God carries God’s life. When the Word of God comes into your life it begins to transform you. Your quality of life is upgraded.
II Peter 1:4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Word of God carries God’s power. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave them power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
God’s Word is God’s power in print.
The Word of God carries God’s Wisdom. Wisdom is correct application of knowledge.
II Timothy 3:15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Grace For Greatness

96-great-atmosphere-greatness-is-for-all-of-us-notes-quote

Everyone needs the grace of God in order to live a life of fulfillment free from failure and frustration. Grace has been made available for everyone.
It is first mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible
Genesis 6:8
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

There was a flood of waters that were to be released on the earth. God instructed Noah to build and ark for himself, family, and for each pair of animals that was going to be protected in the Ark. Genesis 6:17, 7:23
Noah was graced not to be overcome by the flood as he followed the instructions of the Lord.

You might be experiencing a type of Flood in your life, no peace in the home; the business not prospering; wrong relationships- repeatedly; Student- struggling to obtain academic success;
Yet the grace of God is available to bring you salvation from despair and destruction and give you a bright future in your life, home, business, education, and in your relationships.

It is vital to accept and appreciate what has been offered to you.
It is what you appreciate that has the capacity to appreciate your life.
What you despise leads to depreciation. Prov. 13:13;

What is Grace? – God’s unmerited love and favor
Grace is a God given ability to fulfill your assignment in the earth through the gifts, talents, and abilities that were given to you.

John 1:17

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
God is the source of grace and it come through Jesus Christ.

God is the giver of good gifts. God gave grace to you with the gifts He has given you . You can discover your area of giftedness because it is usually in the context of what comes seemingly naturally or effortlessly to you. As you develop that gift the greatness that is inside of you will be manifested for the world to see.

James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

How To Access The Grace Of God To Yield A Great Harvest of Blessing

1. Faith is the master key to access the Grace of God Romans 5:1-2
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Grace can only be accessed when faith is present.
In order to enjoy and manifest the grace then having faith is a must.
Faith is my substance of things hoped for (earnestly expected =target)
Faith can only produce when it has a target. The target is grace

2. Humility James 4:6,10
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Humility is submitting your way of thinking and doing under God’s way of doing. A humble person says I am going to do what God says to do and God will give me the grace to do it. Also knowing that God is going to lift me out of my situation.

3.Operating in your area giftedness. Ephesians 4:7
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

Three Benefits of Grace
1. Great destinies are fulfilled. I Corinthians 15:9-10
God’s grace is required and is enough to make you become who and what God created us to become. Constantly acknowledge, appreciate, and attribute everything to the grace of God and never to your expertise.

2. Grace makes the impossible become possible. Genesis 6:14,15; 7:1-9
Noah received strength and ability to do the naturally impossible, because he found grace in the sight of God.

3. Grace delivers you from the floods of life. Genesis 6:7-8, 17
Failure, fear, sickness, poverty, represent the floods of life. Do not put

Grace has already been made available and is waiting for you.
Pray and receive a fresh grace for your daily assignment and calling in life.

There is Hope For Every Seemingly Hopeless Situation

1-hope

Hopelessness- is the emotion that causes one to feel there is no way out of your situation. Hopelessness says to the person it is not going to get any better. Hopelessness gives you the suggestion to just stop trying and call it quits on everything and everyone.

Hopelessness is a major source of sorrow. When you become hopeless on any issue, sorrow is the reward you get, it is the prize for hopelessness. When you come to the end of the road on any issue (according to your own assessment) sorrow takes over.

There are people in the Bible who experience the emotion of hopelessness but became overcomers of this emotion and got the victory. Make the choice to become one of the overcomers.

Know that you are not alone. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. I Corinthians 10:13

Naomi’s husband died. Her two daughter in laws husbands died as well. But God turned a hopeless situation around and gave her a testimony. Ruth 1:1-21; 4:16

Hannah felt hopeless because she couldn’t have children. But she went to church and received a word from the Lord through the man of God and the situation turned around. Hannah I Sam. 1:1-7, 11-17,19-20

Abraham was given a promise by God to have a child and he almost became hopeless because it took so long for the promise to manifest. He who against hope had to believe in hope and received his promise. Abraham – Romans 4:17-21
We aren’t talking about the hope where you wish things would get better. We are talking about Bible hope based on the Word of God. It is earnest expectation based on God’s Word.
Hebrew 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hope for. Hope is the earnest expectation; anticipation of something good.

Hope is my target or goal setter of my faith. My faith can only produce what I expect. My faith need a target or a goal.

Faith is the substance of things of hope for. The substance of things. What things?
The things you hope for. What do we hope for? We hope for the things that God has promised us in the Bible. For example peace, wisdom, guidance, health, etc.
Hope is the partner of faith.
Abraham made a decision to get some hope from God’s Word.Romans 4:18-21

Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

You are only downcast when you become hopeless. Hope sparks off joy, it releases new life inside of you that keeps you singing even when people think it is crazy to sing.

Hebrews 12:2
Jesus could see tomorrow so nothing in his present could cast him down.
He saw beyond the cross to the crown, beyond the grave to the throne.
You cannot see a bright tomorrow and not be excited today.

It is only people who cannot see anything in their future that are downcast.
Our days of being downcast are over and God is opening your eyes to see. You have a glorious tomorrow, which the enemy of your soul is upset about; he wants to puncture your hope, so you can join him in his upset state. Refuse to be upset! As long as God is for you, you have a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

“Believe To See”

Whatever you do concerning your life, marriage, family, loved ones, career, your business, ministry- do not stop believing. It is always to soon to quit, to turn coward, faint, and give up. Simply because what you see is subject to change.

The psalmist stated in Psalm 27:13-14

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living.14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Mark 9:23                                                                                                                                               

“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

So that clearly let you and I know that what God want to do in our life is based on our capacity to believe.

What may seemingly may be impossible for others can be possible for you if you choose to believe. To believe in someone or something is an act of your will. Also to believe means to accept something as truth without any sense realm evidence

Keep in mind:

It will not happen just because I believe – but it won’t happen unless I believe

My  three question to you is..

What is that you desire? What are you going to do? When are you going to do it?

Luke 1:45

Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

I am praying what you read inspired you to use your God given gifts and fulfill the assignment that God has placed in your heart.
