Happy New Year.

What does this new year hold?

No one knows but God, but there are two things that I know for sure this new year holds.

What are those two things?

They are promise and hope.

What is hope? It is defined in the dictionary as a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.

What is promise? The dictionary defines it as a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.

That is powerful! Let me repeat that definition. A promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.

What does the bible say about hope and promise?

“Hope” in Scripture means “a strong and confident expectation.” Though archaic today in modern terms, hope is akin to trust and a confident expectation.

What does the bible say about promise?

The bible is the promise of God. 

Every word spoken by God is His promise for us.

Here are a few scriptures about His promise.

In Phillippians 4:19, God says:

19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+4%3A19&version=ESV

What does that mean? That means that God promises to provide for all of our needs according to His riches through Christ Jesus. 

Did you get that?

Your God will supply every need! Incredible!

What other promises are there in the bible?

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+41%3A10&version=ESV

In Isaiah 41:10, God’s promise says this:

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;

I will strengthen you, and I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Wow!!! What is God saying in this promise?  

He says, “Do NOT FEAR and do NOT be DISMAYED”! He is our God. He will provide us His strength, His help, and He will uphold us with His mighty hand.”

Incredible!

The bible is filled with God’s promises of love, protection, strength, provision, etc.

It is up to us to know His word (the scripture) and utilize His words and promises in our daily lives. 

His written word is our weapon! We use His words to bring forth every promise He has spoken over us.

You might sit there and think that hope and promise are silly and nonsense, but I assure you they are not.

Hope is something valuable to hold on to. Without it, we become hopeless.

Hopeless people do things to others and themselves that are dangerous and potentially life-ending. 

Hoping for a better new year is a great gift to ourselves and others.

Now, the promise for a better tomorrow is incredible. It provides hope as we arrive at the new year. 

I believe in 2022; we will see God eradicate this horrible virus!

God sees our struggles, and He hears and listens to our pleas for help.

Many of us continue to cry out to Him. We continue to give thanks for the moving of His mighty hand.

We cannot give up our hope when it comes to Him moving to extinguish this virus and reveal the truth about its origins and all the individuals involved in its creation.

I know in my heart that this virus was not from God but will be used by God to glorify and enhance His Kingdom.

I believe in 2022, America will see a revitalization of our country and our economy.

When America’s economy is doing well, other countries’ economies will also improve.

Will these things come to pass?

I don’t know. I believe, and I have faith that they will. I am speaking those promises into our existence every day.

Yes, you heard me correctly. I am thanking God now that those things have already come to pass.

I know one thing for sure.

God is NOT done with America yet!

America is coming into Her golden age.

I believe in my heart that America will flourish like never before.

And with all that said, I am full of hope and excitement for 2022 and beyond.

I know that there will be one more outpouring of God’s spirit on this earth before we see our Messiah return again. 

That outpouring hasn’t taken place yet. 

I believe that too is coming soon.

We will see miracles beyond anything we could ever imagine with our own eyes.

We will see with our own eyes the sick healed, the deaf shall hear, the lame will walk, limbs will grow back, and the blind shall see.

There will be no doubt that these miracles are from God Himself.

So you see, we have a lot to be hopeful for!

I pray that God bless you and your family beyond anything you can contain in this new year.

I pray that His blessings overcome you where you are forced to share them with others.

For that is the reason He blesses us so that we may become a blessing to others.

God desires to bless us where we don’t have room enough to contain it:

Malachi 3:10 Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this,” says the LORD of Hosts. “See if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out for you blessing without measure. (biblehub.com)

Happy New Year.

God bless each of you.

God keeps you safe, sound, happy, content, and looking to Him for miracles, signs, and wonders.

In the name of Jesus, I pray this. Amen.

Loneliness – are you feeling it as you shelter in place?

god-bless-americaWP9.28.19

Today, we celebrate our Armed Forces. We say, “thank you” to each of them for their bravery, service, and dedication.
Right now, as I am typing these very words, our rights are being threatened. We have been told to stay at home, not go to work, not go outside, to only see our loved ones for medical emergencies, and not to go to our places of worship.
What?? How can this be? We are Americans. We love our freedoms! We are blessed with freedom of speech, worship, to protect ourselves, etc.
These rights are given to every citizen of America.
No law, no decree, no executive order can take these from us.
Yet, we have power-hungry government officials that seem to think they have the power to take our rights away.
We voted these officials into office, and we can vote them out of the office too. We can seek retribution in the courts. In some states, we can even recall officials.
We have to do something. We cannot lay down and let these officials strip away our rights.
If we allow our rights to be taken now, how long will it be until they do it again or find a way to take away our rights permanently.
We are being controlled and silenced. What is the tool they are using to silence us?  Fear of course.
We are silenced from speaking up about our rights and these atrocious attacks on them.
Our worship is being silenced.
That is one thing we cannot allow to happen because God desires and deserves our worship.
When we worship, mountains move, bodies are healed, minds are restored, marriages are made whole again, addictions are broken, and miracles happen.
When we worship, God moves!
Our worship makes all of heaven move on our behalf.
We cannot allow our worship to be silenced!
Our answer to this pandemic is in our worship. The answer to a vaccine is in our worship, and our economy’s recovery is in our worship. America’s breakthrough is in our worship.  America’s next level is in our worship.
Every answer is in our worship.
Whatever happens, do not allow your voice to be silenced! Do not let your worship to be taken away from you.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that you contact your senator, representative, governor, major, your city council, and even the President.
All of us have to take some action now. Call, write, email, sign a petition, start a petition, or peacefully protest.
Let them know that our voices will not be silenced and that we will not sit by as our rights are stripped away.
America, stand up now. If we don’t, God help us!
Don’t give up now. I see God in the midst of all of this. He is at work. He has not and will not ever forget us.
He sees our suffering, and He hears our prayers.
Keep praying, pushing forward, and keep worshiping Him.
Pray without ceasing because that is what His word tells us to do.
Pray fervently. God’s His word says that a fervent prayer availeth much.
As we pursue God fervently, I see a mighty move of God coming because we pushed through and didn’t give up.
God will avenge America. God will restore America and all Her citizens.
I know it easy to become hopeless with so much negativity surrounding us.
That negativity seeks to pull you into its grasps.
Now, let your faith arise. Your faith is what destroys the hopelessness. God will repay your faith because He always honors those with faith.

Dogs need mini breaks too.

How do you find happiness?

 

Don'tWorryBeHappy

Right now, there are so many unhappy people in this world. Depression, drug use, addictions, etc. are all on the rise. Why? Because people are not happy.
For months, we have been locked in our homes due to the COVID-19 virus.
Many were not able to work. If these people had been able to work, that would have relieved some of the pressure of the lockdowns.
On top of that, we were told not to travel and not to see our families
Our leaders told us not to go to our places of worship and not to gather together for sporting events.
Now, just as things are easing up on the lockdowns, we have had mass protests, rioting, looting, and all-out chaos in the streets.
Next, we were told to stay inside to be safe and not get caught up in the craziness that could erupt.
Then, if there weren’t enough, people’s businesses were burned down, thus delaying the return to work for a lot of people. In some instances, this is a permanent job loss as those business owners could not afford fire insurance.
Every day is an opportunity to find happiness in your life.
Now there are more unhappy people than ever. For our sanity, we must find some happiness in our lives.
Happiness cannot be found in a thing or a person. It can’t be found in a new car, a new house, a new significant other, or in the hottest new tech gadget.
Happiness is found in the gratefulness of how blessed you are.
Many ask, “What is the key to happiness in life?  Many search for years looking for the answer.  Some pay lots of money to so called gurus, life coaches, or therapists searching for this answer.
Here is the answer plain and simple: It is gratefulness. Happiness begins with thankfulness.

I know it seems simple and you might not even thing that it works but try it.  Take one day and speak only thankfulness for everything in your life.

Speaking thankfulness changes your atmosphere.  It clears all the clouds of doubt and disbelief away.

It allows you to see better.  It opens ups your eyes to see new things. It lets you see just how bless you truly are.
Some people will think they have nothing to be happy for, but that is incorrect.
Find at least one thing you are grateful for in your life. No matter how small or minute it is.
Thank God that you woke up this morning safely in your own nice, warm, beautiful bed, that you had food to eat, that you woke up to live another day of life, that your family is going well.
If you are blessed enough to have a job at this time, be thankful for that. Be grateful that you have the opportunity to provide for your family. Be happy that you are not relying on anyone or anything to help take care of your family.
Remember, gratefulness always invites happiness in.
If you don’t think those things are not worthy of being grateful for, then you are not aware of the extreme poverty that a lot of people outside the U.S. are facing.
If you are an American citizen, you are more prosperous and incredibly blessed. More so than a majority of the world’s population.
With things so tense and ever-changing, we have to focus on things that will sustain us.
There is one thing that never changes. That is God. He is always loving, faithful, and dependable.
Start looking for the things in your life to give thanks for.
Don’t be embarrassed if it is a tiny thing. Starting little will always leave room for big things to take its place.
Giving thanks to God for small blessings opens your eyes to seeing all blessings He has bestowed upon you.

God, I choose happiness today.
