Wednesday's Weapon! {10.27.10}

Psalm 78:7-- "That they may set their HOPE in God"
Proverbs 13:12-- "HOPE deferred makes the heart sick."
Romans 5:5--
"And HOPE does not disappoint."

You have to get this on the inside of you- there is ALWAYS hope in God! He is the giver of hope, and without Him, you can be helpless and hopeless. God’s Word always gives His people hope. It always encourages and never discourages. I have heard people say, “Don’t get your hopes ups”. To that I say, “Go ahead, get your hopes up!” As long as you have God’s Word to back you, then hope big, and add a little rejoicing in with it. That is faith and faith pleases God.

Thank you Father that I can have hope in You. I expect Your promises to come to pass in my life. My hope in You will never disappoint me. I can hope “BIG” because You are a big God. I chose to get my hopes up now, and refuse to believe for anything less than your best in my life.

Wednesday's Weapon! {10.20.10}

TMI- To Much Information!

Proverbs 3:5&6- " in the Lord with all your heart…"

Psalm 91:11- "...for He shall give His angels charge over me…"

In the day we live, we are filled with information. I think there has always been trouble through out the world, we just didn’t know it like we do now. We have live news at our disposal. I am not saying that is all bad, yet it can cause us to began to worry and be afraid. Awareness is good, fear and worry is not! I am glad that we can trust God in the day we live. Don’t allow the news you hear control your life. God is still God! He will still be with us to protect and meet all of our needs. Like the old song says, “God will take care of you, through every day along life’s way, He will take care of you, God will take care of you.”

Thank you Father that you will take care of me and my household. I am so glad that I can look to You, trust in You, and know that You are my supply and protection. Your Word always brings good news to me today and my tomorrow. The words that I receive form Your Word will bring me peace. I will not be afraid, I will trust in You. Amen.

Wednesday's Weapon! {10.13.10}

The Great Exchange!

II Corinthians 5:21- "...that we might become the righteousness of God."
I Corinthians 2:12- "We have received the Spirit who is from God… "

Jesus took our sinfulness and imparted to us His righteousness. Which means if you know Jesus as Savior, we are in right standing with God. That does not mean we have reached perfection in the eyes of men, but we have in the eyes of God. We can now stand in the presence of God through the precious blood of Christ. You and I were once a "nobody," but He has made us to be "some body." We are not bragging on us, but on Him and all that He has accomplished for us. We can at anytime come to Him and find help in a time of need.

Thank you Father for making me someone I could never be on my own. Righteous in your sight. I will not think of myself as anything less or anything more than what you think of me. Thank you that I can stand in your presence without any sense of guilt, shame, inferiority, or condemnation.

Wednesday's Weapon! {10.06.10}

I’m Special!

II Corinthians 10:12-13 "We do not compare ourselves with others…"
Romans 12:6
"We have gifts that differ according to the grace given us."
{please read these scriptures}

We live in a day where so many “compare” their lives to others. The cars they drive, clothes they wear, houses they live in and even their size. You were created to be YOU. “Things” can be a blessing in life, but being envious of others is not being thankful for who you are and what you have.
I think we should do our best to be “all we can be”. You have great potential inside you. When God called me into ministry, He knew what He placed in me that I did not even know was there. You are special to God. I am so glad that He did not make us all a like. Be all God called you to be, and that is where you will find peace.

Thank you Father that I am me. You have made me special. My desire, is to be all that you have destined me to be. Thank you for helping me change the things that I need to change, in order to be pleasing in your sight. I can do all things through You because YOU are my strength. Amen.

Word From The Word {October}

Hello Blessed Ones

Is this weather great or what? I can handle a lot of this, even a little cooler works for me! We are funny creatures sometimes.... We want cool when its hot, warm when its cold! You would think that we are hard to please or something!!

I am glad that the God we serve is not that fickle or hard to please! He just tells us- "with out faith, you cannot please me." That shouldn’t be too difficult of a task. Just believe in Him, trust Him, don’t waver and He will get involved in your life.

I preached a message entitled, “ A Revelation of Nothing”. I believe that we need to get a revelation of- nothing is ever impossible with God! If you can find His Word on the matter then you should believe it, declare it and stand until you get the victory.

The Word says more that just, "I can do all things." It says it is through Christ! It's His word that enables me to do all things! When I have His word on it- that is my strength, ability, power and proof.

I pray that you will have a "revelation of nothing" and that you experience victory in every area of your life. Have a great October.
