Psalm‬ ‭30:11-12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise you forever.”


DO YOU FEEL...

REJECTED

INSIGNIFICANT

UNAPPRECIATED

OVER-LOOKED

REPEATEDLY WOUNDED 

ABANDONED

AFFLICTED

HELD CAPTIVE

BROKEN

DISAPPOINTED

?????????????????

Jesus wants to tell you how much you are loved.

He wants you to know that you are perfect in every way.

God has designed you to be UNIQUELY YOU so that you can make a difference in His Kingdom and for His glory.

You are not a mistake.

You are not cursed.

You are not the odd ball.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

You are the apple of God's eye!

Jesus is the healer of your wounded soul. 

If your mind, will and emotions are running wild today - give it to God. 

Ask Jesus to heal you. 

Ask the Holy Spirit to quiet your pain.

Ask God to take you up to the High Place so that you can see things from His perspective.

Ask God to help you forgive those that have wounded you.

Ask God to create a clean heart in you.

Press in.

Pray.

Don't let up.

Don't give up.

Just keep believing...

YOU ARE LOVED!

                    JESUS



Psalm 17:8-9 NKJV

Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
From the wicked who oppress me,
From my deadly enemies who surround me.



Zechariah 2:8 NKJV

For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.

Precious friend, if rainy days and Monday's get you down, give it to Jesus.
He is your hope, your peace, your strength, your joy...
He is the lifter of your head.

You are loved.
You can make it.
You will rise above.

Victory Over Sin!


Bookmark and Share





"But thank God! He gives us VICTORY OVER SIN and death through our Lord Jesus Christ." - 1 Corinthians 15:57

SIN is sneaky, deceptive, strong, inviting, alluring, seductive, charming, tempting, magnetic, beguiling, intoxicating, oftentimes thrilling, powerful, haunting, and most of all DEADLY!

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines SIN as:
1
a : an offense against religious or moral law
b : an action that is or is felt to be highly reprehensible it's a sin to waste food
c : an often serious shortcoming : fault
2
a : transgression of the law of God
b : a vitiated state of human nature in which the self is estranged from God

Although SIN is clearly defined as a transgression against the divine law of God (even by the world's standards), so often, we seek to justify our sin so that we can continue to satisfy the lying strongholds of our mind that chain us to brokenness, dysfunction, frustration and self ridicule.

The fact is, the more we sin... the more entangled we get with sin... the more likely we are to keep on sinning.

IT'S A TRAP!

The devil wants to kill us. He is working overtime to deceive us into thinking that our sin is OK because he knows that the wages of SIN is death! The devil hates God and hates God's creation.

THE DEVIL HATES YOU!

If he can just make you believe a lie, he can lead you to drink the poison - time and time, again.

But, the good news is that God has made a way out for us!

When we:

RECOGNIZE OUR SIN...
REPENT FROM OUR SIN...
RENOUNCE OUR SIN...
HATE OUR SIN...

God says He will forgive us and wash us clean!

It's all about agreeing with DIVINE LAW.

So, the choice is ours.

Continue to be hypnotized by the lure of sin.

Or, RECOGNIZE, REPENT, RENOUNCE and REPLACE our sinful desires, dysfunctions and habits with the truth from God's Word.

"But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness." - 1 John 1:7-9

LIVE IN THE LIGHT!

CONTROL. YOUR. THOUGHTS.


Bookmark and Share





CONTROL. YOUR. THOUGHTS.

Thoughts turn into feelings.

Feelings turn into attitude.

Attitude turns into demeanor.

Demeanor turns into circumstances.

THIS. BECOMES. YOUR. REALITY.

Circumstances turn into frustrations.

Frustrations turn into anger.

Anger turns into resentment.

Resentment turns into hatred.

Hatred turns into retaliation.

Retaliation turns into broken relationships.

STOP. THIS. CYCLE.

CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS!

BAD THOUGHTS OUT... GOD'S WORD IN!!!

Create YOUR NEW REALITY by meditating on God's Word DAILY and by being INTENTIONAL about THINKING on His Words.

Get rid of the negative self talk... jealous feelings... that defeated mentality.

Your environment will change as you learn to MASTER YOUR THOUGHT LIFE!

Philippians 4:8 -

Finally, brethren, 

whatsoever things are true

whatsoever things are honest

whatsoever things are just

whatsoever things are pure

whatsoever things are lovely

whatsoever things are of good report

if there be any virtue,

and if there be any praise

THINK ON THESE THINGS!

He Knows Your Name

“But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I HAVE CALLED THEE BY NAME; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:" 
- Isaiah‬ ‭43:1-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬


Child of God, He knows you! 

You are His.

Nothing can harm you.

No one can defeat you.

You are unstoppable.

Now, believe you "are" who He says you are. 

Believe you can "do" what He says you can do. 

Believe you can "become" everything He says you can become.

Weapons may form against you... but they will not prosper.

Your name is ROYALTY. You are loved by the Master.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit


Bookmark and Share




1) Word of Wisdom
2) Word of Knowledge
3) Faith
4) Gifts of Healing
5) Working of Miracles
6) Prophecy
7) Discerning of Spirits
8) Divers (or different) kinds of Tongues
9) Interpretation of (different) Tongues

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 (KJV)

"Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Romans 12:6-8 (NKJV)

"Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1 Corinthians 12:28 (KJV) 

"And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We serve a supernatural God! 

Oh, that the Body of Christ would stop disagreeing about the many wonderful gifts, administrations and operations of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus came to show us the way of the Kingdom. Then, He left us with the Holy Spirit and told us we could do the same things He did - and even greater!

The Lord wants His Body to work together and to flow in their giftings because God loves His Creature and His creation. He has given Man dominion over all that He made. 

The church should be a place of healing - really like a hospital.

But, as long as the church refuses to operate in the gifts that the Lord graciously gave to His individual sons and daughters, the hospital of the church will only be a cloud without rain... a promise without power.

When sick people go to the hospital, they don't want to hear the doctor say, "I might choose to help you; but, I might also choose not to help you." No friend, when sick people go to the doctor, they look for a doctor that will do all he can to help bring about healing.

This same attitude should be assumed by the Body of Christ. We should want to participate with the Kingdom of God by doing all we can to bring about spiritual, mental and physical healing to God's children.

And, God has clearly told us how to do this. He has given GIFTS to men and women for the purpose of bringing the Kingdom to the earth!

Friend, we serve a supernatural God. To try and box Him into a doctrine that limits His love, His way of doing things, His Created Beings who are made in His image and His Word cripples the church. In fact, the church becomes nothing more than a social group, instead of a group of radical believers, when individuals are not released in their giftings - given by God, Himself.

Yes, we serve a supernatural God who wants to see His offspring look like, act like, think like, talk like and work like He does. If you are a born-again, spirit-filled believer, you should be operating in your giftings, because God wants to use your specialty(s) to bring understanding, hope, healing and deliverance to His Creation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



1 Corinthians 12:11-30 (KJV)

"But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many.

If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 
If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

REAL TALK:

Have you considered that The Body is not any particular denomination? You may just need what someone in another denomination has, because God is using His Body (HIS WAY) to paint the entire picture of His Kingdom. It just might be that if any one person had all understanding and all power from every gift of the Spirit, they wouldn't be able to handle it because PRIDE would set in. God knows what He is doing in spreading His power out among His children. So REJOICE in The Body of Christ and let's stop bashing one another in the name of "warning others." 

LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

Just sayin'. :)

Cigarettes - Pleasure VS Pain


Bookmark and Share




REAL TALK...

Precious one.

Don't defile the temple of God.

YOU are the temple if God's Spirit lives in you.

The Lord would not have you in such bondage.

Cast your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.

Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

NOW BE FREE and LIVE...

God loves you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That feeling.

Watching someone you love slowly kill themselves through an addiction.

Addictions steal from us. They steal our joy, our peace, our relationships, our future and our very lives. It's so painful to watch a loved one continually choose their vice over their health.

The doctors have said, "don't do it." Family has said, "don't do it." Their mind and body has said, "don't do it!"

Still, that habit... that desire... that demon... that rebellion... JUST WON'T QUIT.

When will you become sick and tired, of being sick and tired?

When will you cling to wisdom, knowledge and understanding instead of those strongholds in your mind that justify your bad choices?

When will you choose to break free from self-pity? Self-destruction? Selfish desire?

When will you allow someone to mentor you - to speak God's Word into you?

You CAN do it! You CAN stop your addictions!

The question is, "Are you WILLING to change direction?" "Are you willing to let go?" "Are you willing to shake loose from satan's grip?"

I've prayed for you. I've cried out to the Lord on your behalf for over 25 years. I know God heard my prayer. I know God has talked to you about this problem. He is always faithful. I've seen evidence - many times - of His offer to make a way of escape (for you to be free from this bondage).

But, you just won't cross that bridge. You just won't let go. You just won't open your heart and mind to the reality of how much your family loves you and wants to see you healthy and whole.

So today, I'll continue to pray. I'll continue to cry out. And, in the meantime, I'll continue to hurt for you.

Yes, your addiction hurts me! It hurts your entire family! 

We want you to be with us for a long time. We want you to be healthy. We want you to be whole! We want you to have JOY and PEACE and SELF-CONTROL. We want you to be free to talk with us, laugh with us, play with us, cry with us and worship with us... without that obstacle creating bitter poison that keeps "us all" in bondage.

I love you...
