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.

Are you feeling abandoned? Many are.

worship-written-in-vintage-type-WP

Many might be thinking, “where is God right now.” Perhaps they believe that He has left or abandoned us.
He hasn’t left us alone. Now don’t get me wrong when I say that because there will be a time when people will search for God, and He will not answer, but we are not there yet.
That means that you still have time to seek Him out. You still have time to ask Jesus to become your personal Savior.
That means that you still have time to seek God’s forgiveness.
God has not left us. He is aware of what we are facing and what we are going through.
God knows and sees all.
Many say how God can allow so many to die and suffer from this pandemic, food shortage, etc.
God is a God of order and process. He has a particular way of doing things.
We, as humans, have sinned and come short of God’s glory. We have not followed God’s instructions and directions on how to live our lives. We want to live our lives the way we see fit.
Most of the time, it is a life with God not included. We often think we can live without Him than when we find out we cannot; we cry out to Him in anguish to help us.
And He shows up, but remember that there will come a day when He won’t. Are you ready for that day?
When we sin, we cause doors to open that God never intended to open. With those open doors, we invite the enemy to wreak havoc on our lives and our family’s lives.
Every decision has consequences, and those consequences, depending on the decision, are either good or bad.
Right now, we are watching and feeling the effects of the human race, saying to God, please leave.
We asked Him to leave our schools by saying no more prayer and discussing God or religion.
Because of this decision, we now have school shootings, increased drug abuse, increased depression, increased anger, and frustration, and increased suicide.
We told God to leave our workplaces. Now we have work violence, hate, frustration, discord, racism, and bigotry.
We told God to leave our families. We told Him we didn’t need Him anymore. Due to that decision, we have more broken families, more teen pregnancies, more families without fathers, more poverty, and increased abortions.
And on and on it goes.
We told God to leave, and He did. In His absence, we essentially told sin, death, destruction, hate, bigotry to take over.
Now, here we are.
What are we going to do now? Well, we have two choices. We can not pray, gove up, and continue to watch as the world continues to deteriorate, or we can pray as we have never prayed before.
We cannot give up on our prayers. We cannot think that prayers aren’t working.
We can’t just say that we have prayed enough and decide to stop.
God tells us to pray until something happens. He tells us to pray fervently and continuously without stopping.
Now you may be saying that our prayers are not helping, but I think that they are. What evidence do I have?
Well, it’s the evidence of all the increased turmoil. With prayer, things always get worse before the breakthrough comes.
God shows up right on time. His timing is impeccable.
So pray and don’t stop praying. Pray together as a family. Pray in agreement. Pray a loud so that God, the enemy, and everyone listening can hear and keep praying. Don’t stop praying!
Then, the next step is to worship God for your prayers being answered. Even though everything is still chaotic with your human eyes, speak the opposite of what you see during your worship.
Speak life! Pray life and blessings. God will move! He has to because God cannot and will not fail!

God’s protection – surely He will protect us from this deadly pestilence!

deadly-virus_2.29.20WP

The word on most of all the news channels is PANIC!
This world is saying panic, buy months of supplies, prepare for the worse, be afraid, be very afraid, don’t buy that car, or that house right now, hold onto all your money.
These words are fear talking! Fear blurs your vision. Fear makes you do things you would never do.
Fear opens the opportunity for those peddling the fear to control you. Fear lets them dictate your actions.
Fear takes your power and gives it to someone or something else.
Do not let fear and panic dictate your life.
There is only one person that should have control over your life and your decisions. That is God.
Never give up the right to make your own decisions up to anyone. Even when you seek God’s guidance and instructions, we still have the right to do what we want. We are not forced by God to choose His direction after we seek it.
Now, it is time to stop, pray, plan, and prepare.
There is a way to prepare. Don’t prepare in a panic!

Most of all, speak God’s word over this situation! Every situation we will ever face, we can find God’s word/instructions for it in the bible.
You need to conquer fear, speak God’s word over it (Deuteronomy 31:6)!

You need God to spare you and your family for the wrath of Coronavirus? Speak God’s word over it (Psalm 91:1-16).
You need peace, speak God’s word over it(Phil4:7).
You need wisdom, speak God’s word over it(James 1:5).
You need protection, speak God’s word over it (2Thes3:3).
You need joy, speak God’s word over it(Romans 15:13).
You need healing, speak God’s word over it (Psalm 41:3).
Use God’s word! See, God’s word stands forever! It is so powerful that even God cannot change it, alter it, and He must abide by it.
The enemy knows God’s words too! And he knows that God’s word stands above all.
If you know who you are, who’s you are, what you deserve, your rights, and God’s word, there is nothing you cannot accomplish!
We are facing a battle in unknown territory right now but speak God’s word over it.
God has great plans for your life; premature death is not in His plans for your life!
God wants you to live an abundant life. How do I know that? God’s word says so.

Speak life! Open your mouth and proclaim God’s goodness via His word!
You have to continually remind yourself of what God says about you via His word. You, the devil, and God need to hear those words spoken on a repetitive basis.
Don’t think this is a one time and done deal. You must keep uttering these words aloud until you see the manifestation of God’s promises in your life.
In our society of instant fixes, instant answers, and immediate remedies, we have to show patience.
Once you hear these words spoken over, over, over, and over again, you will start to build your faith, your appreciation of God’s word, and the knowledge of your Godly inheritance.
You were created to flourish, prosper, and fulfill your Godly purpose.
Do not let anyone or anything steal that away from you.
Remember, God’s word says that heaven and earth shall pass away, BUT God’s word will stand forever! AMEN!!!

We need God more than ever before!

God, we will not allow this pandemic to destroy America.

 

VirusInRedLetter-4884862_1920

 

What if there were a terrible pandemic in the world, and it hit America in the worst way? What if there was hope in several medicines during this pandemic, but these medications were being downplayed or even talked about as being too harmful?
What if during this pandemic, all you heard on most of the significant newscasts, newspapers, or internet news sites were negative news purposely poised to instill fear at all times?
What if you were told to stay in your home during this pandemic, not go to work, and only travel to and from specific places for food or essential goods?
What if during this pandemic, only certain people were allowed to work and make a living while others were at home drawing money from the government?
What if, during this pandemic, you were told not to celebrate our nation’s birthday? What if you were told that if you did, you are a racist?
What if you were told that if you were caucasian during this pandemic, you were guilty of something silly like “white privilege”?
What if, during this pandemic, you were told that you are a racist? Racism in your family line was predetermined because you belong to Caucasian parents, great grandparents, and great-great-grandparents. Since they were white, they were automatically racist. And because you are white and related to them, this predetermines you as a racist too.
What if, during this pandemic, you were told that only the lives of black Americans mattered?
What if during this pandemic, there were riots, looting, buildings set on fire, and mobs of people in the street beating up ordinary American citizens who were only trying to defend themselves, their homes, or their businesses?
What if, during the pandemic, some cities started to dismantle their police force due to these mobs’ demands?
What if you saw statues of our American history being torn down by these mobs of angry individuals during this pandemic?
What if thousands of Americans lost their businesses or lost their jobs because these angry mobs of individuals set fire to those places of business?
What if, during this pandemic, there was news of another looming pandemic on the horizon?
What if, during this pandemic, people would not go to church. Those who attended services were told not to sing at church because they would help spread this virus?
What if during this pandemic, individuals were losing their Constitutional rights because majors, governors, city councils, or sitting congressmen and women would not protect the rights of certain Americans?
What if during a pandemic, you were told things then later down the line, those things changed?
What if you were told not to wear a mask several months later, you were mandated to wear a mask?
What if you were told to stay at home to “flatten the curve” of this pandemic? Then, several months later, you were told to stay at home until a vaccine was found?
What if after positive news came out about a possible vaccine, you were told not to count on the vaccine because it would have no to little impact on the virus?
What if certain government officials didn’t want to get our economy on track to seek vengeance on someone they hated? That vengeance they sought was based on hate so vile that it was on the verge of a sick, deep, and disturbing sickness that affected every part of their life?
What if, during this pandemic, the Constitutional rights of Americans were starting to be depleted?
What if you watched as police officers were told not to engage looters, rioters, and angry mobs during this pandemic?
What if those individuals who were arrested by the police, were then released back onto the streets? As they were released, they were cleared to pay no bail or fines?
What if you saw crime spike and spiral out of control because law enforcement officers were told not to protect innocent Americans?
What if you saw innocent people and children being murdered in the streets of our biggest cities because there was little to no police presence?
What if certain government officials were releasing prisoners back onto the streets where there was little to no police presence during this pandemic? The reasoning given to the American people was, of course, “racism.”
What if during this pandemic, certain groups of people were allowed to cause mayhem, wreak havoc, destroy, burn down, riot, and loot. At the same time, law-abiding citizens were arrested for defending their homes, families, and themselves?
What if our police force was defunded and dismantled. While this happened, we were told something silly like “reimagine” how the police could be utilized or revamped?
What if there were food shortages during this pandemic? What if the demand for food pantries increased exponentially?
What if, during this pandemic, there rose several organizations that were dishonest. They lied about who they are and what they stand for?
What if these organizations managed to fool lots of people about who they wanted to protect, what was important to them, their history, and their intentions?
What if hundreds of Americans and companies poured funds into these organizations, then those organizations, in turn, had those funds funneled into one particular political party?
Everything listed above is not hypothetical. All these events have occurred.
During the last five months, we have endured a lot. We are exhausted, angry, tired, and frustrated.
We have been lied to and mislead. We have been manipulated and used.
We have been used as leverage. We have been used as a vice against one particular person.
These events are a lot to endure. No wonder suicides, illicit drug use, violence, depression are surging. No wonder people are losing hope.
All of this is a plan to destroy America as we know it. To kill our economy and forever silence conservative America, most of which hold a strong belief in God.
If we are exhausted, we won’t fight back. If we are scared out of our minds, we will quickly give up all our God-given Constitutional rights.
If we feel hopeless, we will not pray, not go to church and not call out to God.
If we are afraid to speak up out of fear that we will be labeled a racist, we will not say a word.
If we fear to lose our jobs in this tough economy, we won’t speak up and complain to our Senators, governors, or our President.
Here are some things to remember in these difficult times were are facing. We are more durable than we want to admit. If we give up our rights now, we will never gain them back.
Fear, coercion, lies, manipulation, dishonesty, guilt, shame, hate, racism are NOT things from God.
They are tools used by those who want to control and manipulate us.
The hate these individuals feel is sick and twisted and not from God.
Those that seek to hurt, lie, kill, maim, and destroy other human beings are dealing with some wicked demons.
Somewhere, there is a mastermind of all these wicked plans to destroy America, Its citizens, our Constitutional rights, our futures, and our booming economy.
That person or those people must be exposed.
Again, we turn to the only one who can do that. That, of course, is God.
God is the one who can change a person’s heart. He is the only one who can make someone do something way out of their character.
God knows and sees all. God knows the plots of evil which have set out upon America.
Now is not the time to give up on our prayers. Now is not the time to throw in the towel.
Now is not the time to give up. Now is not the time to stop fighting.
Now is the time to fight harder, pray harder, pray more often, to worship God, even more. Now is the time to pray, fast, and give God to move, expose, and heal our land.
I keep hearing that our hedges of protection have been let down. Now is the time for all our prayer warriors to pray and rebuild those hedges and protection walls.

Let’s pray:
God, we worship You and thank You for Your mercy and grace that never ends. We thank you for your forgiveness that is endless.
We thank You for our home in America. We thank you for this beautiful land and all our freedoms. We thank You for all those who fought and died to defend and preserve our freedoms.
God, forgive us for our sins. Forgive America for Her sins, forgive our leaders, and forgive every citizen who has sinned against You.
God, America is in turmoil right now. God, calm all anger and frustrations in all of our hearts.
God, we call upon Your divine protection for our homes and our families.
God, we call upon Your provision to continue to sustain us during these difficult times.
God, we call on You to heal human hearts that feel then need to destroy things and hurt other people.
God, we ask for healing in our nation. Father, heal every place of racism and bigotry.
God, help us see the division we are causing with our words and actions.
God, restore our unity and faith in one another.
God, expose every ounce of hate and racism in our police forces.
God, expose every person who is purposely seeking to destroy America, Its citizens, our Constitutional rights, our futures, and our booming economy.
God, expose these organizations that have emerged for who and what they are.
God, open our eyes and ears to see and hear the truth according to Your word.
God, expose every plot and ploy to destroy our current President. God, expose all lies and wickedness.
God, what every plot, plans, ploys are in place let them ensnare those who plotted and planned.
Let every fiery dart meant to cause death and destruction return to its sender.
God, expose the pure hate and disdain these individuals have towards our current administration and towards America and Her citizens.
God, let us pray to build up our hedges of protection.
God, let us seek You never like before. Place inside of us new hope and passions to see America strong once again.
God, we thank You and pray in agreement. We pray in the name above all other names, Jesus is that name.
Amen.

 

For those of you who want to ask Jesus to be your personal Savior, here is your prayer:

God, forgive me for my sins. God, cleanse me of all unrighteousness.
God, I believe Jesus is Your Son. I believe He took my place on the cross. I accept Him as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

Speak generational blessings over your children!

words-have-power_WP2.8.20

What words did you speak over your children today? Did you tell them that they are wonderful, create, blessed, cherished, loved, kind, peaceful, grateful, graceful, and loved by a God who adores them?
Or did you tell them they are spoiled, horrible, rotten, trouble makers, instigators, bullies, ungrateful, and that no one cares what happens to them?
See, your words will frame your children’s tomorrows too. They will see themselves through the very words you speak over/to them.
They will hear many words throughout their lifetime. Always speak the words of who they are, who you want them to be, who God says they are, and of what they will accomplish over them from a very early age.
They can hear your voice as they grow, develop, and are protected in their mother’s womb. Let them hear these affirmations now. When they hear these positive words over and over in their lifetime, it is these words they will hang onto.
Having heard these positive Godly words spoken over them constantly and consistently from before birth will cement who they know they are when they are grown up.
If these Godly words are heard daily for 18 years straight, your children are likely to continue speaking these same Godly words over themselves and eventually over their own children.
Talk about pulling generational blessings into your family!
There are enough fears and doubts brought into our lives by the world, we as parents need to make sure our children know who they are before they face this world alone.

 

God, where did America take a wrong turn?

no-hate-2019922_1920

God hears our prayers. God hears our cries. Right now, God knows our hearts are breaking. I believe His heart is breaking too as He watches us tear everything apart.
We are heartbroken for all the people who have died, lost their businesses, and now, are losing their faith. We have watched as our historic buildings and statues have been vandalized.
We are heartbroken at all the hate swirling around America right now.
Night after night, we watch as people devolve into the most terrible versions of themselves.
We watch as innocent Americas are beaten in the streets sometimes within an inch of their lives. What is their “crime”? They were only trying to protect themselves, their property, or their businesses.
We keep hearing that black lives matter. Yes, of course, black lives are important, but what about other lives?
When did our legal process approve for crowds of people to become judge, jury, and executioners?
When was it deemed okay to murder innocent people in the streets because we perceived they have hatred for us?
Don’t all lives matter? Aren’t all lives extraordinary?
Does God sit in heaven and say that this person’s life is more important than this other person’s?
Does He say that He will only hear a black person’s prayers because they are more important than any other white person?
No, He does not. He never will.
We are all God’s children made in His image.
His word tells us to love each other as Jesus loves us.
Will all these killings, destruction, stealing, and looting resolve the hate in our hearts? No, it will not.
Nothing we do will bring back the lives that have been lost.
Killing is wrong! God’s word tells us that.
I keep hearing that that police forling unarmed minorities is the genocide of the black race, but how can that be?
Is this true? According to statistics, there were approximately ten shootings last year that involved unarmed black individuals and the police.
Also, let me make this VERY clear. I am in no way justifying what happened to Mr. Floyd. Those officers deserve the punishment that our legal system deems appropriate. Their judgment will come from 12 of their peers and a judge.
No life should be lost to hate. Every life is remarkable and planned for by God Himself.
Now, do we truly know all the facts behind all the killings of innocent unarmed black individuals? Could it be that we are just going off of what we heard on the news?
Have we been used as pawns to do the bidding of certain people in America that want to see Her destroyed?
Some other things are bothering me too.
If black lives matter above all other lives, and we are watching genocide of the black race, why isn’t there more protesting at all the abortion clinics strategically placed in our black and brown communities?
How many innocent black and brown babies are murdered in America at these abortion clinics? Every murdered baby is a life that will never exist. Some might see this as a way to control the minority population.
To me, this is the genocide of black and brown people.
These clinics were open for business during the recent lock downs and were deemed essential businesses by some politicians.
Why aren’t we outraged by EVERY brown and black lives lost? Why are only some black lives being focused on?
Why isn’t hate in general being focused on? There are many types of hate in this world. There isn’t just hate against black people.
What about the hate that blacks have towards whites?
What about the hate that Hispanic people have towards blacks or whites?
Why aren’t we focusing on hate altogether?
Why aren’t we focusing on the hate taught to our children?
That is where hate starts. Hate is taught because no one is born with hate in their heart.
Why do we feel the need to teach hate?
What motivates that?
These are all fair questions.
We have failed at discussing the hate bubbling up from underneath us.
We have had years to discuss it, and yet we didn’t.
We let it fester. We swept it under the rug, and now we are paying the price.
I see these as all fair questions. When will we ever sit down to discuss them? Can we ever go back to have a civil discussion?
Can we even discuss things anymore without yelling and screaming at each other?
When did we lose our civility and our respect for other people?
If we focus on only one type of hate, can we ever get a handle on hate altogether?
Things will not change unless we change the hearts of humankind. Civil unrest will continue until we figure out that there is only one answer to all the hate in the world.
That answer is God! Only God can truly change a person’s heart and touch someone to restore their lives fully.
God and our Savior, Jesus are the answers.
How do we get God involved? It is simple: we pray, fast, and plant seeds for healing and restoration of America.
We must turn it over to God.
We cannot lose faith in God! No matter what we are facing and no matter how impossible it seems, God will turn it around.
Our God is a miracle-working God. Our God works in the realm of the impossible!
Time to let Him heal our wounds. Pray fervently and without ceasing. Fast a meal or a day’s meals towards this hate and civil unrest. Fast so that all anger, hatred, frustrations, fear, and anxieties will be broken off of America and off the American people.

Let’s pray:
God, forgive us. We have sinned against You, and we have taken justice into our own hands. We have broken man’s laws that You told us to obey.
God, we have murdered because we perceived someone hated us.
God, we have destroyed because we saw others doing it. We allowed anger, frustration, and a mob mentality to cloud our judgment.
God, we laughed at the suffering of others.
God, forgive us. We repent.
God, forgive us for the injustices of humanity.
God, forgive us for letting hate, anger, and frustration control and overtake us.
God, forgive us for blaming others for the shortcomings in our own lives.
God, help us.
God, hear our cries, and don’t turn away from us.
God, we are desperate for You.
God, we restore peace and civility to our nation. God let us respect each other once again.
God, place kindness, forgiveness, and love in our hearts for one another once again.
God, turn our hearts that have become cold and stone into hearts of flesh.
God, unroot all hate, frustrations, bitterness, anger, and blame from our hearts.
Father, let love grow there instead.
Father God, heal every broken heart and dissolve all fears and anxieties.
God, help our nation recover for the destruction we have caused. God, help every person and family recover what was lost. Let their new livelihoods and businesses flourish like never before. God, let this recovery be quick.
God, expose all those individuals behind this unrest. Expose all the lies told to us to make us pawns in their evil plans.
God, let them be held accountable for all the death and destruction they caused with their lies and evil plans.
God, if they did it for money or more power, expose that.
Once You expose these things, God, we will not seek revenge on them. We will let You avenge your people instead.
God, restore America quickly. God, bring back our jobs and livelihoods restore America back to Her glory.
In the name of Jesus, we pray in agreement. Amen.

If you want to accept Jesus as your Savior, here is your prayer:
God, forgive me for my sins. God, cleanse me of all unrighteousness.
God, I believe Jesus is Your Son. I believe He took my place on the cross. I accept Him as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

God, we sent out the invitation for hate, chaos, and destruction to take over.

Riotportland-3935418_1920

Due to a unseen virus, most of the world has been on lock down for several months.
People are frustrated, angry, and confused.
We are bombarded with an onslaught of fear nonstop by a majority of the media.
Some people are desperate to go back to work, open their business, and make much-needed funds to pay their bills and feed their families.
Yet, we are being told to continue to stay home.
For the last week, we have seen the frustrations of being sheltered in place for months on end pour out onto our American streets and cities.
Along with all these frustrations, we have seen hate, bigotry, and destruction accompany it.
We have seen a man brutally killed by a police officer with a history of wrongdoing.
This officer was allowed to continue to work as a police officer by the very people we appointed and placed into office.
They did not protect us from this officer. They did not protect a man from dying in the streets in front of our eyes.
Everyone is pointing the finger of blame at everyone else. No one wants to take responsibility for this man’s death or the riots that followed, but the truth is we are all too blame.
We have allowed this. We have our children, our families, our schools, our laws to close the door on God.
We told Him we no longer needed Him. We told Him to get out with our lives with our laws.
We told Him He was no longer relevant to us and that we could handle our lives all by ourselves.
Boy, what a mistake we made! What a mess we have made!
We cannot live our lives separate from God!
What you are seeing is the frustrations of years and years of injustice spilling into our streets.
Our political leaders have overlooked many people. We allowed them to stay in control while they got more prosperous and more influential, and the American people fell deeper and deeper into poverty.
We allowed them to stay in the office while they dismantle our middle class.
We let them stay in office while one by one, they gave away our jobs.
We allowed them to stay in office while they continued to look them another way as injustices happened to their constituents.
We allowed them to stay in office while they made silly laws to help only themselves.
We allowed them to stay in control year after year.
We allowed them to stay in office year after year while allowing foreign governments to affect our laws and policies, which only benefited them.
We allowed them to make laws to murder innocent babies. We let them take our tax money and fund those murders.
They took our money, which says, “In God, we trust” to fund the murder of the most innocent of us.
Now, we have blood on our hands! We are just as guilty as they are if we said nothing and did nothing!
We have a voice, and we must use that voice. Whether it be with our votes, our calls, our emails, we must use our voice and speak up!
We allowed these individuals to stay in office, and now in some states, people cannot even go back to work.
Now, we are allowing them to trample on our God-given rights as Americans.
They told us we could not go to our houses of worship. We are instructed to stay home and not go to church.
We are told not to worship, not to pray, and not to seek God.
If anything, we need to pray more, We need to worship God more than ever.
Only God can stop all this chaos, confusion, and anger.
We must repent now! We must seek God’s face now.
We must seek Him harder than ever.
We cannot be turned away from Him. We must press in now.
Little do they know that God is omnipresent. He is everywhere at all times.
We cannot be kept from Him. He doesn’t live only in our places of worship, for He lives where we are! All He needs to show up is our worship.
Call out to Him today.
If you seek Him with a truly repentant heart, He will forgive you. Seek Him for all those who are hurting and for those who have murdered the innocent. Seek God for all of them. Stand in the gap for each of them.
Pray for the healing and restoration of our land.
Do this daily and fervently. Pursue God with a renewed passion. If you need a renewed passion, ask God for it.
I know you have been praying already. The evidence of anger, hate, and destruction is evidence of our increased prayer.
Don’t give up now even though it seems worse and hopeless. Do not give up your hope.
Hopelessness comes when our faith is lost.
Ask God for a renewed faith.
I believe we are on the verge of significant restoration and move of God.
We have to push through with our fervent prayer, faith, and our love of God.

In the name of Jesus, fear, you will no longer control my life!

 

Fear

Where is your joy, peace, and happiness? Have they been stolen? Have they been taken away by the fears of what tomorrow holds?
Do not let your fears consume you. Right now, there is fear trying to overtake you.
It is on the news every second of the day. It is all your family and coworkers are talking about.
Now, there are a lot of people filled with fear. So much fear that they are afraid to leave their houses.
They refuse to go to buy groceries, go to the gas station, go to a restaurant, go on vacation, and go to work.
They might even refuse even to go outside.
We must not allow fear to consume us.
When we live in fear, we are easier to control. When we live in fear, we do irrational things, make irrational decisions, and let our rights get taken away.
I am not sure when exactly fear overtook your mind and spirit, but it did.
You have to resist that fear. You have to make fear flee. If you don’t, you won’t be fully living. Any person who lives in fear is not living their full potential in life.
Please remember that we take risks all day long. We take risks when we operate a vehicle. We take risks when we are at work. We take risks when we attend a movie, go to our child’s sporting event, when we go out for a meal, even when we sleep.
No person is promised that they will wake up for their nighttime sleep.
We are at risk of catching a life-threatening illness. We are at risk when we eat food. Every aspect of our daily lives encompasses risks.
Yet, we don’t’ think about them as we drive, sleep, etc. and don’t let these fears overtake our lives.
Somehow we have come to a rational decision in our minds that those risks are minuscule or that these risks don’t muster up fear in our lives or consume our thoughts anymore.
Somehow, we have put those risks aside and continue to drive, eat, sleep, and enjoy our lives.
What is so different about this virus? Why has it consumed your mind to the point where you won’t leave the house anymore?
Yes, this is a dangerous virus. Yes, this is a highly contagious virus. Yes, this virus can be deadly if we don’t take the right precautions.
Yes, it very accurate that some individuals indeed get very sick once they catch this virus, but I believe it only a small percentage of people who catch this virus that ends up in the hospital.
Our fears must be driven away. Fears won’t leave on their own. Once fear takes you over, it won’t let up and will not just disappear on its’s own.
We have to command fear to leave us, and we have drive it out with God’s words.
One thing that makes fears leave immediately is worship. When you worship God, you pull the presence of God into your life. When God’s presence is there, fear, worry, anxieties must flee.
Fear, worries, anxieties are not of God. So, when God is present, those spirits cannot stay there in the presence of God.
And make no mistake, fear, anxiety, and worry are not just emotions. Yes, when they show up quickly in response to a situation that comes up unexpectedly, yes, those are emotions that show up in response to that situation you are in, but then those emotions dissipate right away.
When you live in constant fear, worry, or constant anxiety, there is a spirit of fear, anxiety, or worry involved.
Such much in fear that you won’t leave the house or go to work or do the things we all enjoy doing.
If you are bombarded by fear at all times, it is time to seek help from your Pastor, Bishop, Preacher, Priest, etc. Ask for prayer. Do not suffer in silence. Do not be ashamed to admit that you are being held captive by fear.
Seek God’s word too. It is filled with promises, provisions, protection, etc. of God.
God’s word will never fail! Did you hear that? God’s word is pure power! It cannot return to Him unfulfilled, and it can never fail. It will never change.
Here is an example. God’s word tells us to fear no evil (Psa23:1-6).
Here is another one. Isaiah 41:10 tells us not to fear for God is with us.
You must make fear flee!
Take God’s word and use it.
It is your weapon against the evil of this world. It is your sword (weapon), which is mentioned in the prayer for the Armor of God (Eph6:10-18).
All day drive out fear with God’s word. Pray prayers of protection over your family members and yourself.
Do not think God’s word and prayer do not work. Do not let anyone talk you out of using His word and stop your prayer.
We are not just pawns to the evil of this world. We have the right to live in happiness and peace, but we have to remember that these rights have to be fought for.
I am not talking about fighting as in violence. I am talking about fighting with prayer, God’s word, our worship, and our spoken words of blessings and life.
Today, make the decision that you will live in peace and happiness.
We all have one life. Chose to live in joy, peace, happiness, and not in fear.

Our American rights are under attack

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.
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, 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 around 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.
