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.

Your tomorrow defined by the words you speak today.

wordshavepowerChalkWP2.16.19

If your goal is to move closer to God in 2020, some things are a must-do.
If you are determined to reach your next level in God’s blessings this year, you must remember this important rule. You must master the words you speak!
Every single word you speak today will become what transpires in your life tomorrow, next week, next month, or sometime in the future. Today, choose to speak blessings.
Knowing the power your words carry is crucial for you to understand. To move God, who is moved by faith, you must speak life, blessings, and wholeness. Our words carry out our faith in our futures. Our spoken words tell God what we expect of Him.
Remembering this will change your life forever! Your words have power!
Rember God spoke the world, the sun, the stars, and the moon into existence with mere His words. Then, what did He do next? He praised Himself with more words! He said, “This is good!”
He created every animal with His spoken words. Then, once again, He praised Himself with more words saying, “This is good.”
Our words must be used to not only move God by speaking life, blessings, healings, and miracles but then using those same words to move Him with our worship and praise. Utilizing our words to worship will open heaven to pour done even more blessings.
Because we are made in His image, we, too, have that same power bestowed onto us by our Father, God.
Your words have power too! Every word you speak out of your mouth will either bless your life or curse your life.
Today, mind the words spoken over you and your loved ones. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit for conviction over the words spoken from your mouth that don’t line up with God’s will.
Minding your words on your own may be difficult for you to master, but God can and will help. All we have to do is ask Him.
Again, His word says that we have not because we ask not.
2020 will be a year where words will bring incredible blessings, but we must speak them in our future, and we must worship God for His blessings.
God, we thank You that 2020 will be a miraculous year filled with blessings that cannot be contained. Holy Spirit, convict us for the words we use. Father, make us aware of the power of our words. Let our spoken words be ones of blessings, life, prosperity, and positivity. 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.

Our American rights are under attack

God, help us worship our way thru the storms!

trust-god-woodenWP8.24.19

We all pray for storms never to darken our horizons. A lot of us seek a life with less drama and bad situations.
Some of us work very hard to make the right choices and live a drama-free life.
But even make all the right choices does not mean that storms will always go in a different direction.
Testing of our faith will cause it to grow.
Like a good teacher, our knowledge must be tested. Testing of our faith is the same. It must be tested.
Growth in our faith and knowledge increases our faith, wisdom, and understanding.
The storm you battle will not only bring you victory, God glory, but it will also bear your testimony.
Testing brings forth testimonies of just how wonderful our God is. Your testimonies will assist others in facing the same or similar situations.
So should be happy as we see an impending storm approach? Or perhaps even be pleased as a storm hits us by surprise? Well if you want the absolute truth then yes, we should be ecstatic when a storm hits our lives.
Those storms come for a reason. We have to grow. Without testing, there is no growth.
Am I saying that a life full of a storm after storms is fair? No, of course not. But with all things, there is a reason why all those storms keep coming?
We have to figure out why our life is in so much turmoil and testing. God is a God of order. There is a reason for everything that happens in our life. And, God is never surprised by what goes on in our lives.
If He allows the storm, He knows we can conquer all thru Jesus!
So when those storms appear, be of good cheer and worship God for the victory.
Thank Him that when the storm is over, He will take you to the mountain that you would never have been able to conquer without Him.
Just as we must pass through the low, low valleys, God will take us to the highest mountains of victory!
So when that storm is coming, worship your way through it. Thank God for testing, building, and increased new faith! Thank Him for the testimonies that will come out of this storm.
Most of all, thank Him for His faithfulness. See when you are walking through a storm of poverty, unemployment, depression, sickness, etc.., most of us will see who is our true friend.

All those fair-weather friends will disappear, but God will never leave.
At the beginning of the storm, through the storm, and at the peak of victory, He will be there. Forever faithful! Amen.

God, use me!

faith-sign-made-of-wood3.24.18WP

Have bold confidence to face any fear, giant, naysayer, friend, or family member that is telling you that God won’t gigantically use you.
If you have a confirmed promise from God, do let anyone or anything steal it from you.
Don’t make excuses why God can’t use you. Stand boldly in who you are and in whose you are.
God used Moses who had a speech impediment. Moses argued with God about His plans to use Moses to accomplish this goal.
Moses had very little faith in God at the very beginning of their relationship. BUT God transformed Moses into a BOLD warrior that freed God’s people from the bondage of slavery.
David had an illicit affair with Bathsheba, BUT GOD used him to become a King. David became a man after God’s own heart with his worship and praise of God. I long to be a worshipper the likes of King David!
See God uses imperfect people to accomplish His goals on the earth.
We only have to say “Yes, Lord. Use me!” God will do the rest!

Always give Him thanks!
