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.

Our American rights are under attack

Do you know Him?

GetToKnowGodWP11.30.19

Do you know God? Do you have a personal relationship with Him?
It’s easy to get to know Him. All you have to do is ask. It is not complicated. We, as humans, complicate straightforward things.
God desires for each one of us to know Him
Some might think that it is impossible to get to know God, but it is not an impossibility to have a personal and close relationship with God.
Pursuing God so you can get to know Him on a personal level will not disappoint.
As you pursue Him, know that no human will ever fully know everything about God. He is too complex.
See our God is all-knowing, all-seeing, all-encompassing, all love, all kindness, and all-forgiving.
He has wisdom, intelligence, and knowledge that is beyond any one person’s full comprehension?
Although you won’t know Him fully, as you pursue Him, be ready for incredible, life-altering, life-changing, ground shaking glimpses into an all-powerful God.
I am not sure about you, but I want to be one of those people who see exclusive glimpses of Him.
I want to see and know as much as humanly possible. I know what God has to reveal to me will change me forever, and I am ready.

Let your faith arise!

God’s promises do come to pass. We have to hold onto them until they do. How long would you wait for God’s promise to come to pass?
So often we receive a promise from God then expect it to appear the next day, the next month, the next few months.
When we are forced to wait any longer, we get so discouraged and often give up. What happens when we have to wait years and years for this promise to show up? We let go! We give up. Then, we second guess what God promised us? We think we are unworthy, or we believe that God changed His mind.
Sometimes, we get angry. We tell ourselves that we wasted so much time and effort on a promise that never showed up.
First and foremost, you have to understand that God does not measure time as we do. In our calendar year, perhaps in the same time frame, only a minute has passed for God.
We also have to understand that God works on His timing, not ours.
We also have to understand that God works on His timing, not ours.
We also have to know that before our promise is delivered, we have to be prepared. We have to be tested by God. We have to prove we are ready to receive such an enormous promise.
God must prepare us. Can you imagine what would happen if we received a promise from God without being prepared? It would end disastrously.
Would you ever give a teenager the keys to a new car without first testing them to make sure they are prepared to drive?
Would you ever let your child drive without a license? They must take some form of class. They must have some training to learn how to drive with either formal or informal courses.
It is the same for us and our promises. We have to be prepared and tested. We have to be ready. We have to have our foundation in place.
Our faith has to be tested! God works through our faith and is moved by faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God(Heb11:6).
His word tells us that we must believe in Him and earnestly seek Him. He rewards our diligence. He honors our persistence!
Do you have the boldness, the persistence, the diligence, and the relentlessness to seek Him for all His promises? If you don’t, do you want to have these things to step boldly out into the faith you need?
Then, pray and ask. Pursue God for these things. We have not because we ask not(Matt7:7).
A lot of us will never step into the fruition of His promises because we will give up and quit! We will let go.
Then some of us will become angry, bitter, and frustrated with God. We will blame Him for wasting our time, but in all truth, it was us that spent our own time, efforts, those promises.
We are shown a significant promise but not the road we will have to travel to get there. We are not shown the amount of time that will pass before we are standing in the fruition of that promise.
It may be a long, tedious, treacherous road that must be traveled. God does not show us this part because this is the part where our faith must arise, abide, and carry us through.
No matter how long it takes, don’t let go! Hold on, no matter how much time passes. Don’t give up on God. He knows what He is doing. Trust in Him, in His timing, and His love for you.

God’s word stands forever. Amen!

dear-future-im-readyWP3.16.19

God hasn’t forgotten what He promised you! God cannot lie, and He is always faithful!
He will bring it to pass. Somehow, someway, God will do it! He always keeps his promises.
Though it seems impossible, it seems so far away, and it appears as though it will never happen, God will do it!
So what every confirmed promise you have, hold onto it. Never give up on it. Never let it go. Never let anyone talk you out of what God promised.
God will bring to pass what He promised. He has to! If He doesn’t, that means that God is breaking His word.
God’s word CANNOT be changed or altered in any way. His word cannot be broken or unfulfilled. His word is His word period. It is never changing, never-ending, and all abiding, in the name of Jesus!
God himself cannot change His word. Heaven and earth shall pass, BUT HIS WORD will stand forever. Amen!
Speak with bold authority that God must bring that promise to pass. Utter it aloud with confidence. Let God, yourself, and the enemy hear it often. But be prepared because when you speak with boldness and authority of God’s promises and words, all hell will break loose.
The enemy will fight to stop you. Our enemy will do everything to stop you from stepping into your divine destiny.
As much as God wants you to achieve your destiny, our enemy wants, even more, to stop you from fulfilling that destiny.
The enemy wants to make God be a liar. He wants to keep you poisoned with fear and doubt, and He wants to make you double think who you are and whose you are.
He wants you not to believe who God says you are and what God told you could have.
Do not believe his lies for he is the father of all lies.
Combat his lies with the TRUTH of God! That is why uttering God’s promises aloud and often, are imperative! Without theses, utterance’s of God’s promises, you are susceptible to the lies, doubts, and fears of the enemy!

Did you let your dreams die?

you-are-forgivenWP4.13.19

You know what God showed you about your destiny. It was so long ago, but you are holding onto that vision, or did you give up on it?
Do not let go of it! Hold onto that promise with every ounce of strength you have.
Do not let go of that promise for any hater, naysayer, or doubter.
Yes, they may laugh and make fun of you, but let them! Don’t let their doubts and disbelief affect your praise, worship, faith, or your spoken utterances of God’s promises.
Let them laugh, point their fingers, and shake their heads in disbelief
God will have the last laugh. When they see what God brings to pass, they will be calling you, searching for you, looking for you, and asking everyone where you are and how to get ahold of you.
Never think that your dreams are dead!
If you have let go of those dreams because so much time has passed and you though God had forgotten about you and His promises, then here is the plan.
First, seek God’s forgiveness for giving up on Him, and His promises then revive those dreams with your words! YOUR WORDS HAVE POWER! You are a child of the most high God. His words have power, and so do yours! God speaks life into everything, and so can you!
SO, speak life into those dreams to reignite them!
Do not let your dreams wither and die. Speak life into them!

Can God use you?

Yes, LordWP4.2719

Never think God can’t use you! He uses imperfect people to complete His perfect plans.
Moses argued with God about His plans, instructions, and directions BUT GOD powerfully used Moses.
David had an illicit affair with, BUT GOD rose David to a kinghood from the place of being a shepherd boy.
Noah loved his wine and nudity, BUT GOD used him to save and preserve humanity, animals, and birds.
Jonah ran away from God, but God used him anyway.
Sarah was impatient and pursued her plans in place of Gods to bring His promise sooner, BUT GOD did not hold that against her.
Gideon was a doubter, BUT GOD transformed him anyway into a great warrior.
Do not think that your past can dictate where God will place you.
Do not think that God cannot use someone like you.
You are the apple of God’s eye, and He has set aside great plans and a victorious destiny for you.
Even if you doubt, run away, worry, or have an imperfection that you think disqualifies you, God will use you!
All you have to do as ask for God’s merciful forgiveness for these transgressions. Then speak these four powerful words to God.
“Yes, God, use me!”

Hold on! Your destiny is closer than you think.

photo-destiny-WP11.24.18

No matter how long it takes for you to step into your destiny, do not give up.
God is not a man that can lie. He will never mislead or misdirect you. Do not let go of your blessings.
He has considerable & tremendous plans to bless you. You must trust that He knows what He is doing.
Do not think that delay means that it will never come to pass. God’s timing is always perfect.
Whether you decide to give up on your dreams or choose to pursue them, time will pass either way.
Use that time wisely to prepare, seek God, pray, and complete any directions from God that will place you at the right time and place when He decides to open the door for your destiny.
If you give up and do not work towards preparedness, you will not be ready when the time comes for God to open your door to the fulfillment of your destiny.
If you hold on and do not give up, fulfillment of God’s purpose for your life
will come to pass!

You are a unique individual created by the master creator!
