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!

We need God more than ever before!

Soon we will be getting back to life as we know it.
Many of us have been working from home or not working at all for several weeks now.
Now, it is time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work.
Our economy has suffered a severe blow, but we can get it back on track.
There is one thing for sure; we cannot stay tucked away for 6 – 12 more months.
If we do that, our economy will collapse. If the American economy falls, the rest of the world’s economy will follow suit.
One thing we need to remember is to keep our guard up.
We can’t throw caution to the wind.
We must still remember to start slow. Small numbers of patrons in a restaurant to have a sit-down meal at one specific time. Smaller amounts of people to watch a baseball game instead of the full-blown stadium filled to the brim with fans.
We have to take it slow but get things moving. If we have to wear masks and gloves for a little while longer, so be it.
One thing that we cannot do is have a significant setback in new virus cases because we refused to listen.
I know it has been challenging to deal with all these new rules, but some of them made sense and were for our good.
Now, we have to let those who are still at risk stay home while the rest of us get to work.
America has been through difficult times before. This type of suffering is nothing new to us.

One thing that we have to demand going forward is that everyone get tested. We have to know how many America’s really have had this virus, how many are immune, and how many were hospitalized, etc.  We cannot go forward without knowing this.
One thing we cannot do is forget how we got here, to begin with.  We have to remWe can’t ignore all the voices which cried out to God for help, mercy, and grace.
We cannot forget all those individuals who pursued God because they were looking for answers to their fears.
We cannot turn our back against God once things get back up to speed.
We, as humans, tend to move on and forget what sustained us during our difficult times.
We cannot allow God to fall to the wayside. I know many of you reached out to Him with feelings of fear and being lost.
You reached out, and God was there. Do not turn your back on Him now.
We have paid a heavy price with this virus, and it could have been a lot worse.
We paid with the loss of precious lives, a significant economic downturn, new cases of addiction, new cases of depression, etc.
Whatever you do, do not forget God. We cannot allow His hand of protection to be taken off of us because we have turned our backs on Him once again.

Keep your pursuit of Him strong!  Keep your focus on Him. Remember when you cried out to Him and He answered. Remember how you found peace in all the things of Him.

Whatever you do, don’t forget Him!
I truly believe He shielded from the worse. He has been merciful to us, and I, for one, am grateful.

In the swirling fear of coronavirus, let’s go back to the basics – worship!

coronavirus_2.29.20WP

Its been a while since we just worshipped God. I think with all everything going on in our world right now, this is a good day to go back to that place of worship.
We need to use our worship to find His peace and serenity. In our worship, we find His love, and most of all, His presence!
God, we thank You for who You are. You are holy, magnificent, glorious, and beautiful.
Thank You for waking us up today. Thank You for keeping us safe last night as we slept.
God, we love You will all our hearts. We worship You for everything You have blessed us with.
We thank You for the food we have to eat, the bed we have to sleep in, the job to support our families, we thank You for our health, thank You for this day. For this is the day You created, and we shall be glad and rejoice in it (Psl118:24)
God, we thank You for our Savior, Jesus. Thank You that He took our place on the cross. Thank You, Father, for giving Your only Son, Jesus, to die in our place on the cross.
Because of Him, we are restored back to You. We say thank You, Father. Thank You for the comforter, the Holy Spirit.
Father, we thank You that You are our strong tower, our defender, our protector, and our warrior.
Father, thank You for Your peace, joy, and abundant happiness.
Thank You, Father, for the way You love us! You love us without expectation, and You love us just how we are. You love us, relentlessly!
Your love is unconditional, never-ending, never ceasing, and unfathomable
Thank You, Father, for Your mercy and grace that renews every morning.
Thank you, Father, for the pursuit of us. Thank You, God, that before the foundations of this world, You loved us.
Before this world was formed, You were thinking, planning, and in anticipation of us.
God, thank You for Your never-ending forgiveness.

Thank You for Your divine plans for our lives. Thank You that You have a purpose set out for each one of us.
Thank You that as we worship You, all fear, all doubts, all depression, all worries, and all anxieties must flee.
Thank You that our worship brings our focus back to You. It places You front and center, and everything else falls to the background.
Thank You that our worship moves mountains. It makes a way when there seems to be no way.
God, protect us. God, there is so much fear about coronavirus and the death that comes with it.
Father, right now, in the name above all names, we bind all viruses, including coronavirus. We loose perfect health and safety in its’s place.

God, Your word says that whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven(Matt18:18).
God, we thank You for Your divine protection for our families against all forms of viruses, disease, sickness, and coronavirus.
God, we command that we shall live and NOT DIE (Psl118:17) in the name of Jesus.
God, we place a hedge of protection around each one of our family members.
God, we place the whole armor of God on each of our family members(Eph6:10-18).
God, we thank You for everlasting life thought our Savior. Thank You that no weapon formed against us shall prosper.
Father, we cast every form of this virus to the pits of hell where it belongs.
Father, we ask Godly wisdom upon man to come up with a vaccine quickly.
Father, we ask for forgiveness for our disobedience of You. God, heal our lands.
Father, as fast as this virus appeared, we ask that it dissipate and disappear that quickly too.
God, we ask for protection over our President and his administration from all forms of sickness, disease. and all viruses. Angels, in the name of Jesus, surround the President, his family, and his whole administration and divinely protect them. Your word instructs us to pray for leaders (1Tim2:1-3).
God, we ask for divine protection around our troops and their families.
God, we ask protection around our children and their schools.
God, send angels to protect each one of us.
God, we seek Your face. God, restore our economy and our nations.
God, we ask that the truth be revealed exactly how this virus started. Let the truth be known. What man does is secret shall be made known to all man.
Father, we know that we are inching closer and closer to the second coming of our Savior. God, let every heart be restored to you.
God, we ask for a resurgence of You. We ask that this world be will turn back to You. God, let there be a revival of You.
God, let there be a new hunger and thirst for You. God reignite fires and passions for You and everything about You.
God, let us see a mighty move of God.
God, we ask all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Yes, he was destined for the job!

god-bless-americaWP9.28.19

Last week I wrote about how our American President needs to be defended with our prayers and our voices.
I have to elaborate on this post from last week. Our current President is fulfilling his divine destiny. Yes, he was destined to be the President of the United States right now.
Everything he has been through in his life has prepared him for this destiny. God chose him a long, long time ago to fulfill this destiny. God knew he was the only one who could do this job, handle the daily scrutiny, and still manage to get things accomplished.
God set this man aside to do all of this for Him. To prepare America for the coming battle that will defeat our enemy, to defend Israel, to rebuild critical alliances, to demand and return respect America, to build up our armed services, and to rebuild America and Her economy.
As you read this, you may laugh to yourself and think this is crazy nonsense. That is fine. You are entitled to your opinion, but I know this to be the truth!
You may even despise our President. You may think he is too arrogant, outspoken, proud, and ridiculous. That is fine also. Again, you are entitled to your opinion!
Do I think he is perfect? No, of course, I do not. There are many things I wish he would say or do, but I still know who he is and what he was destined to do.
We have a job to do for God. He tells us that it is our job to pray for our leaders. Are you doing that? I am. Despite the things I don’t like about our President, I still pray for his safety, for him to always seek God for everything he needs, for God to humble him, and for God’s will to be done.
As I have mentioned in the past, we all will answer to God on judgment day. No one will escape God’s judgment. Once we have knowledge of God’s will, His word, or what He wants and expects of us, we are responsible for our actions/inactions. Once we are made aware of what God wants, we have to answer to Him for our inactions or actions.

If you despise the President, pray for forgiveness first as we are not to hate anyone. Second, pray for God to help you to pray for our President. Ask God to place tolerance in your heart and spirit for the President. Ask God to help you with the frustrations you feel towards this man. God will help you. He will ease your dislike of the man so you can pray for his safety and for God to direct him.

HE IS RISEN! Happy Easter.

tomb-jesus-christ-risen-easterWP4.21.19LG

He IS RISEN! Jesus defeated death, the grave, all burdens, all sickness known to man, and Satan.
Today, we celebrate our glorious Savior! He gave His all for us and paid the ultimate price for every one of us. He is the unblemished lamb of God.
With His sacrifice, He forever created a bridged back to our heavenly Father.
Jesus suffered immense pain, anguish, beatings, mockery, torture, hatred, and the agonizingly slow death of suffocation. He did this for you! Never doubt how much our Savior and God love you.

Today, if you want to seek salvation and Jesus as your personal Savior, pray this prayer with me:

God, I am a sinner.  Forgive me of my sins.  I believe Jesus died on the cross for me.  I believe Jesus is your only begotten Son.  I accept Him as my personal Lord and Savior.  God, come into my life and use me for Your glory.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

If you prayed the prayer, you are born again.  A new child in Christ.  If you are able, find a good bible-based church and believes Jesus is our resurrected King and Savior.

If you cannot find a good church don’t give up.  Keep praying and seeking God for Him to find you one.  There are many great churches online.  Joel Osteen, Pastor Paula White, Bishop TD Jakes, and Pastor James Jacobs are just to name a few of my favorites.

Also, seek God often as possible through prayer and by the reading of the bible, which is God’s word, constantly.

Via the bible (God’s word), God will start to reveal things to you.  His word is also your spoken weapon to utilize against sickness, lack, fear, etc.  It is your weapon to use against the enemy. His word has power!  It will never lose its power and it cannot be altered, changed, or revoked.  His word is so powerful that even God cannot change His own word(the bible).  Never forget these things about the bible! His word spoken out will give you victory in every battle you face.

God bless you!

Communicate with God!

God SPEAKS!
