Faith VS Fear

Bookmark and Share

Will you have the audacity to take God at His Word? 

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Did you know that you've got to have faith in order to have fear?  Sounds crazy, I know. But, it actually takes just as much energy to doubt and live in fear as it does to live in faith. In fact, fear, doubt and unbelief is your faith power working in the negative position!

Friend, faith produces substance. It produces evidence. God's Words says so.

In the same way that faith produces substance, fear, doubt and unbelief produce substance - or the lack thereof. 

So why spend another minute meditating on the wrong thing? Why allow your mental and emotional energy to create something undesired? 

As we meditate on God's Word - and what He says about us, for us, through us and to us - we re-program our minds to live in the faith zone. And, the faith zone is the place where the desires of your heart become a reality (Psalm 37:4).

God has good plans for you! He wants to see you live out your days going from glory to glory in all areas: spiritually, physically and mentally. 

But... His protocol for achieving this "land of milk and honey" requires faith. Positive faith. Faith in His Word. Faith in His good pleasure. Faith in who He made you to be. Faith in your abilities as a Child of the King. 

So, don't spend another minute in fear (negative faith). Read your Bible. Pray. Encourage yourself (David did this). Practice casting down thoughts of negativity. Practice replacing fearful thoughts with faith filled thoughts of the Great "I Am." 

Just do it! Take God at His Word. Be brave. Be courageous. Be bold. Be radical.

Shut out the nay-sayers. Close the door to the devil. Demolish wrong thoughts. 

And, watch God transform your every area of existence as He creates substance that gives evidence of your thought life!

Dream Big!

Bookmark and Share

The saying, "the sky is the limit," had a much different meaning before there were hot air balloons, airplanes and space rockets. I'm sure whoever coined that phrase for the first time never "really" imagined anything beyond our atmosphere.

Where is your limit? Is it the sky? Is it the moon? Or is it yourself?

I hope you have no limit!

The impossible CAN be accomplished through God.

Your challenge today is to "Dream Big" and NEVER let your natural view dictate your spiritual reality!

Ephesians 3:20-21 (KJV)

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Pass the Test!

Bookmark and Share

I found this poster on Facebook and had to share it. Those of you who have taken my classes will totally get it...

Pass the Test!

What test?

That thing that repeatedly comes around and causes you to retreat, regress, oppress, depress, suppress... or, anything but BE BLESSED.

Respond differently this time.

STAND on God's promises. HOLD ONTO your blessing... your dream... your hearts desire... your hope... YOUR FAITH

The devil is betting you'll quit... give up... or, give in.

God is believing you'll WIN!

Good Deeds

Bookmark and Share

Isn't it strange how we sometimes find ourselves in a place of feeling like we are OK with God - just because we made the check list of good deeds for the day. Then again, oftentimes, we find ourselves feeling inadequate as a Christian - because we failed to "do" all the things we intended.

Child of God, it's wonderful to rest in the LOVE OF GOD. By simply surrendering your life, meditating on His Word and fellowshipping with Him in prayer, God promises that the Holy Spirit will be your helper... your teacher... your compass... your comforter... your friend...

My sweet friend, when you truly rest in the LOVE OF GOD, there is no glory in the works of the flesh. There is no need to worry - "did I" do enough, "did I" say enough, or "did I" be enough.

The Holy Spirit of God reveals Himself through the fragrant fruit that emanates from a life that is not only trusting in the Master, but also one who is eager to please the Him in a spirit of humility.

A peaceful countenance is more precious than all the "works" your flesh can ever muster up.

So, if you are trying hard to be a good Christian. If you are trying hard to please people. If you are trying hard to win God's approval - to win His favor...

I've got good news for your today.


By only laboring to live in the power of the Holy Spirit, all other labor becomes joy! The Holy Spirit will not just empower you to "do," "say" and "act" right... He will also add an abundance of JOY in the midst of it all.

So for today, I'm challenging you to LIVE in the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT.


Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you to over-flowing so that your life will spill out rivers of joy in everything you do!

Radical Faith

Bookmark and Share

Hebrews 11:6 NIV 

"And without FAITH it is impossible to PLEASE GOD, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he REWARDS those who EARNESTLY seek him."

Why does radical faith rattle the minds of some? While others cling to their faith in the power of the God's Word and the character of who God really is - it's their way of life!

The book of Hebrews tells us that God is pleased when we believe Him. So much so, that He actually rewards those who believe.

Some would say, "Well, He rewards some, but not all." On the contrary... God's promises are always true. The unstable factor is "us."

So why not dig your heals in, put your face to the wind, and hold onto the horns of the altar for your miracle?

It's much more noble to die believing than to live with unbelief.

Believe for God's best!
Believe for your miracle!
Believe for favor!
Believe Hebrews 11:6.

Fear, apathy, indecision, stubbornness, and religious dogma are not God's prescription for victory.

Friend, even FACTS must bow the knee to TRUTH.

Just believe! 

Earnestly believe!

... And if you feel it's just too hard to hold onto your belief, ask God to "help your unbelief."

God loves YOU!

Mark 9:24 NIV

"Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, 'I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!'”

Generously Scatters!

Bookmark and Share

Scattering Love, Resources, Time, Money... ???

Boy, how often do we, even as Christians, think that's wasteful. It's often perplexing to think of how God commands us to be givers, with a promise that He will always supply our need.

I have found so many versions, so many slants, so many opinions - about God's law of sowing and reaping - to be discouraging and, quite frankly, exhausting. 

In the Kingdom of God, things are completely backwards from the things of this world. In God's Kingdom, giving brings abundance. In the worlds economy, "keeping" means abundance.

In fact, many Christians have such a hard time with this principle that they form doctrines that they unknowingly hold onto "tighter" than the goodness of God's Word!

Friend, the ultimate example of giving that resulted in a massive harvest is the life of Christ. God "gave" His Son, so that millions of sons and daughters would come to know Him. In our human intellect, that makes no sense.

But, even if you are a "good Christian" who has accepted this to be true, the question still remains, do you believe that God's principles are the same in every aspect of life? Or, do you compartmentalize God's principles so that you can pick and choose which ones to accept as absolute truth - because, after all, "you've got this" in that particular area.

Precious friend, the principle of SCATTERING (giving liberally) is a supernatural way of living that few will ever experience. Whether because of faulty doctrine, greed, temptation, justification, intellect, jealousy or manipulation, many will miss out on the goodness of God's exceeding abundance.

Like Joshua and Caleb, I want to believe that God says I can live in the land of milk and honey.

Moses sent twelve men to spy out the land of Canaan. They all saw the same thing with their natural eyes, but only two of the men understood that God said it was theirs. The other men feared that God didn't "really mean" it was theirs because they saw other people already living there who were giants. They rationalized, "Why would God give this land to us when these people already live there... and they are much bigger than us?"

So anyway... That's just a tidbit of how our human intellect gets in the way of the Holy Spirit.

So the encouragement for today is that you live a life that SCATTERS!

Scatter your love, scatter your time, scatter your resources and scatter your finances. The Holy Spirit will tell you how, when and where. Then, JUST DO IT! And... watch God increase all the more!
