God, in the face of this virus, let us use Your word as our weapon.

God’s word is not some letters, paragraphs, and punctuation printed on paper. 

God’s word is our weapon!

Just as our heavenly Father speaks and creates, we can speak things into existence (that are according to God’s will) using God’s word.

The bible is the spoken word of God given to man to write down. 

The bible is not an ordinary book. No other book can be used as a weapon that can defeat poverty, sickness, depression, addictions, etc. 

God’s word, used regularly, can defeat the enemy every single time.  

There are no if, and, or butts on whether God’s work will work. It is a sure thing!  

God’s word is never faltering, never failing, and will never return void to God. 

God’s word must be fulfilled on this earth! 

It will never lose its power! It is unchangeable! His word is so powerful that even God cannot change or alter it. Even God must abide by His word.

The bible says that heaven and earth will pass away, but the word of God will endure forever(Matt24:34).

Wow, that is incredible. Even when the heavens and the earth are gone, God’s word will still hold its’s power to transform.

We can use God’s word and faith to move our mountains. 

What are our mountains? Well, they can be anything standing in our way of reaching a new level in God. It can be a deadly virus, debt, sickness, addictions, a broken family, finances, lack of faith, hate, bitterness, revenge, bigotry, etc.

Anything we face in life that is not of God, we can apply His word to transform that situation. 

Now please understand, this does not mean that we can use the word one time and expect miraculous things to happen. 

Yes, God is the God of miracles, but we have to do our part too. We have to start seeing things as God sees them, praying without giving up, declaring God’s word over our situations, and constant worship!

We have to keep speaking God’s word over our situations until we see God’s promises come to fruition.

We cannot pray once, then be done. We must pray, worship, and speak God’s word constantly. 

We must pray without ceasing! God’s word says that  The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail (James5:16).

Pursuing God this way means we have to break out of our results-in-an-instant mentality! 

Don’t worry. It may start as something that seems like a lot of work, but when you see how God moves, you will happily adopt this as your new way to solve the problems in your life.

As things progress and you see significant changes in your life, your faith will move to higher levels. 

As you move to higher levels, you will notice an increase in your knowledge of God. He will start to reveal Himself, and you will get glimpses of how astonishing our God truly is. 

Once that happens, you will never want to be out of His presence. There is no other place like it! 

The words you speak today will become your reality tomorrow.

Words are spoken by us every single day of our lives, but do we stop and think of what we are saying with those words?
Many of us speak words without thinking twice about the weight of those words.
We speak frivolous, mean, hateful, words, or say negative things about ourselves and our family without thinking twice.
When a friend comes up to us to tell us that they are feeling well, we then proceed to speak death and destruction over them.
Instead of speaking life and telling them we will pray for them, we say things like, “wow, I bet you have diabetes.”
With those small five words, you have just spoken disease and destruction over that person.
Now, will they automatically get diabetes? Of course, they won’t, but with your spoken words, you have managed to open a door of possibility for them to become diabetic.
See your spoken words over them of disease, opens a door in their mind. It causes their mind to consider this possibility. They may mull it over in their mind over and over again. Then, they might even agree with you in their thoughts. Eventually, that leads to them saying our loud with their own words this sentence, “I think I am diabetic.”
Boom! There it is! Power is given to disease for it to come to fruition in this person’s body.
Our words have power. We have to place a filter on our thoughts and words.
We have to think of the ramifications of each spoken words that come from our lips.
Another example of how powerful our words can be is when a frustrated mom tells her son, who has gotten involved with drugs, that he will become just like his dad.
She expands her verbal abuse by saying that her son’s dad died of a drug overdose and that her son will follow suit.
Boom! This mother just pronounced death over her son! With mere words, this mother planted the idea and thoughts in her son’s mind that he would die of an overdose just like his “no-good” father.
Well, the son thinks this has to be true because his mother said so. So that son decides that there is no reason to pursue rehab or to seek help with his addiction. According to his mother, his future is set with death.
These words stick in the mind of the son, and he thinks of it constantly. Then one day, he tells his friend that he will die soon of an overdose just like his dad.
There it is, words were spoken that will bring forth the death of this young man.
When he passes away, will the mom ever know it was her words that started this downward spiral of her son?
She may never realize that her words have power and that the words she chose to speak over her son are words that he could never recover from.
Situations like these go on steadily in each one of our lives. We are confronted with situations, and we have to choose what to say. We can no longer frivolously use words.
Words have power, and they can bring forth life or death. So think which words you should use before they come out of your mouth.
Most of us have heard the phrase “think before you speak.” This phrase is a perfect example of what we are discussing right now.
Think of the words you will speak. Do those words bring life or death, do they promote positive or negative emotions? Do they promote health, joy, happiness, and a positive mind frame? Or do those words cause hurt, pain, tears, confusion, fear, and a harmful or hurtful mind frame?
Sit back and examine the words you have spoken over the past week. What did those words promote? Examine your life and the life of your loved ones.
Is there disease, poverty, anger, frustration, divorce, drugs, addictions, and depression present? If there is, then it seems the words spoken by yourself and your family members are not promoting life.
To restore God’s will for our lives, we have to become like Him. Now that is not to say that we will be perfect like Him because we will never achieve this. God and our Savior, Jesus, are the only ones who will be perfect, but our goal is to try to become more and more like them every day.
Our words have to reflect God’s will and the things that He desires for us. He wants happiness, joy, abundance, provision, and a healthy and blessed life for each of us.
God is a God of order. Blessings cannot flood your life if you continuously speak hurtful and destructive words.
Now, most of us were not taught that we have to choose our words carefully. A lot of us were taught to speak our minds and not to keep things bundled up inside of us.
Yes, we must speak up for ourselves but do so with carefully chosen words. Think of what you are saying before the words escape your mouth. Once spoken, words cannot be taken back.
Will it be easy to change our thoughts and words? Can we do this by ourselves? The answer is no. We cannot do this by ourselves, and we have to seek God’s help via the holy spirit. We must pray, repent, and always ask for God’s help.
Will it change immediately? I am not sure. It might or it might not. The thing to remember is not to give up. Don’t get frustrated. If you make a mistake, seek forgiveness, and keep praying for God to help you.
One day, you will find yourself thinking about the consequences of each word before you speak it. It will become a simple task.
Most of all, your life will be transformed. That within itself is priceless and worth all the effort.

“God, let this decade be my jumping point into ALL the new things of YOU.”

Unleashed by God.

thankful-grateful-blessed-on-whiteWP5.7.19

Last week, I was blessed to attend Unleashed 2019 in person.  It was hosted by Pastor Paula White at her church. Attending that conference was exactly what I needed.
God did not disappoint.
He brought a now word in every session. He filled up my spiritual cup to overflowing.
I prayed for a refreshing impartation of God. I prayed to be restored, to be refilled with a new fire of God, to have a new focus, to have my determination reset, and to have a new appreciation about all things of God.
Before I left to attend this conference, I prayed relentlessly for new levels, new visions, new direction, AND NEW OIL!
Pastor Jentezen Franklin (@Jentezen) delivered a powerful word about appreciating exactly where you are now. He ministered about not putting off your happiness until some significant events happen in your life like getting married, having children, or graduating from college.
Prophet Gideon Danso (@gideondanso) is a true prophet of God. He astounded us as God revealed things that only God would know.
He delivered powerful words/directions from God Himself. People who were blessed to receive their now word will never be the same. They had a life-altering encounter with the God of all gods.
I was one of the truly blessed to receive a rhema word from God. God revealed incredible things about my children. He also delivered confirmation about my new upcoming children’s books. God floored me with what He divulged about the future of my family and myself.
Pastor Pushie Watson (@PushieWatson) gave a Rhema word about “New Oil.” She blew the walls down with this message from God. She sealed the conference with the “New Oil.” She helped deliver us into new levels, and new encounters with God through His “new oil.”
If you can get buy the CDs from this conference, do it. It was pure power.
Then Pastor Paula White (@Paula_White) gave us a small glimpse of her new book written under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
To see someone who went through so much pain and suffering rise up to such power through God is astounding!
You know that you know that you know that God has stood by her side every step of the way. To go through so much pain and still be standing is truly a testament of God and the fact that there IS something greater set ahead of each one of us.

 

Today, I am filled with new levels of gratefulness.

trust in God3.24.18wp

Who is like our GOD? Who can compare to Him? No one! He is the one true living God! I have to worship Him for He is truly worthy. Nothing and no one can compare to Him.
Today, I am filled with a new level of gratitude towards Him. He as taken care of me in an unexplainable way.
Just as He changed my own life, He will forever change your life for the better. What He has in store for you is something greater.
That something greater is something beyond your wildest dreams and thoughts.
I have to say “Thank You” to Him. He loved me even when I was unlovable, He is everything to me, and there are no mere human words to describe how much I love Him.
When the enemy set out to destroy me, our God took care of me, watched over me, and sent His angels to protect me.
When I was suffering for the consequences of my actions when I chose my choices over God’s when I opened doors that He told me not to open, and when I disobeyed Him, He loved me anyway. He shielded me from the sins that came with along my disobedience.
Just as He did these things for me, He will do the same for you. His word says that He is no respecter of persons.
Today, I say to you seek Him now for His word say that one day He will be searched for and not found. Voices will call out to Him, but He will not answer(Prov1:28).
Do not let that day come upon you without seeking Him first.
