Delight yourself in the Lord

The Word of God says in Psalms 37:4-5, Delight thyself also in the Lord and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart ,commit thy way unto the Lord ,trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.  What God is simply saying to us is that If you love me you will spend time with me. And it reminds me of something that God show me in this scripture where he said, "everyone is asking for their desires but they have not even experience my desires". Then God said "it was never  David’s desire to be king it was actually my desire for David to become king". So I know that God has promised you your desires but God says he is not through blessing you yet so he is going to give you what he desires concerning your life. And God's desire is simply something I called “Fitted Blessings” blessings that only fit you. Fitted blessings are reserved blessings that are created in eternity that are waiting for your arrival in time. And the fact is is that no one can force these kind of blessings they are only Time- Released. Based on the time you spend  with God. So what I'm simply saying today is that God has a blessing with your name on it .When we had the baby shower for my first born baby girl, there were certain blessings that she could wear,these were her "Fitted Blessings"  and  there were even blessings that had her name on it. So I come to declare unto you that you have some blessings that only fit you and have your name on them. Fitted blessings are similar to making complete passes in a game called football. When a quarterback throws the football ,he throws a football to a receiver hoping that he will be at the right place at the right time to receive this football. The only difference is is that Jesus is now our quarterback but he never makes an incomplete pass. I want to declare to you today that Jesus expects for you to be at the right place at the right time so he can throw you this blessing! 
  

Encourage Yourself

The Word of God says in 1 Samuel 30:6, And David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. I believe that it is vital for your survival to learn how to encourage yourself in the Lord .If you wait for someone else to do it that may never come but if you learn how to do it yourself you will learn a secret weapon that you can pull out and use against the devil. The whole point of the devil is to discourage you and to bring you into a spirit of condemnation, so that he can continue to make you feel so low that you feel lower than life. His job is to steal, kill and to destroy. He wants to steal your joy, kill your ability to fight back and destroy your God-given potential but I believe that God wants us to understand how to encourage ourselves in Lord. So how do you do it? What do you do? You simply learn how to place your mind on the Lord ,the Bible says "thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee-Isaiah 26:3. You have to learn how to “think on these things” the Bible says in Philippians 4:8-9,  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 a good report, if there be any virtue if there be any praise think on these things, those things which you have both learned and received and heard and seen in me, do and the God of Peace shall be with you. And one day God help me to understand what all this meant. I was feeling down one day and I said God why do I feel so down and he said "because you are thinking down. Whatever you think about there is an emotion that is attached to that thought. So think about things that are uplifting and think about what I've done for you and begin to praise me". And all of a sudden I begin to be uplifted and then God showed me how to encourage myself in the Lord. What I'm simply saying today is that you have power over your emotions you have power over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. It is time for you to encourage yourself in the Lord and you don't have to wait for someone else to encourage you because his Word says “my word is nigh thee, even in your mouth”. So your encouragement is right on the tip of your own tongue, now it is time to wipe those tears and  encourage yourself in the Lord amen.
   

Faith Fixer

Matthew 21: 22 says “And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer believing you shall receive". 
There is a story that comes to mind, the woman who had the issue of blood and this woman was in pain and agony for 12 long years until she met a man called Jesus. She came from behind and touched the hem of his garment and instantly she was healed. Jesus turned around and said "woman your faith have made thee whole". What's so amazing about this is that Jesus never told anyone my faith have made thee whole he said "your faith  have made thee whole". In other words your faith  has the capacity to heal your body,  your faith has the capacity to fix your problems. It reminds me of when I was in that deadly  car accident which flipped 3 to 4 times and I flew out the back windshield and the car flipped on top of me. It was my mother that had faith in God and recognize my clothing under the car because they could not find me. And she didn't call for help she just called on the name of Jesus and the spirit of Samson came upon her and she lifted that car off of me, flipped me on my back ,slap me on my forehead and shouted “Live”. So it was her faith that saved my life. And let me tell you something your faith can save someone's life and I pray that you will walk by faith and not by sight so that your faith can alter someone's destiny in Jesus name Amen!

Time is the Measuring Cup of Love

In John chapter 15 verse 7 it says "If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you". What God is simply saying to us is that we have a choice to make. You can choose to do it your way or do it God's way . The word abide means to live or stay as a permanent resident. And sometimes we want to use God like he is a timeshare, we use him when we need him but then throughout the year we forget about him. The question is do you want a relationship with God or do you want a dictatorship over God. God is asking "are you willing to spend time with me to abide in me?" "Time is the Measuring cup of Love". You can't really tell God that you love him if you're not willing to spend time with him. God has created a blueprint for your life and if you follow this blue print it will lead you to a life of success. It will lead you down a path of a tremendous amount of blessings. If you abide in me and my words abide in you, he's saying you have to deposit the Word of God into your heart .We all know that if we do not make the necessary deposits into the bank account then we will not have enough when a bill comes in the mail. The bill represents a problem in our life and if a problem shows up and we have not deposit the Word of God into our hearts we're going to be in trouble. God is saying when a problem arises you have to go to the bank of your heart and make the necessary withdrawal but you can only make a withdraw when you have made the necessary deposits. So you have to deposit the Word of God into your heart and into your spirit. That's why David said “thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee”. So you have to hide the Word of God in your heart because you never know when you're going to come up against a problem, situation or tribulation. Then God said you'll be able to ask for whatever you need at any time if you make the necessary deposits into your heart. It is time for us to deposit the Word of God into our spirit man so that we can handle the situations of life,  Amen!

Living by the Word

In Matthew chapter 4 verse 4 it says "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God". Jesus Christ was showing us how he operates. When the devil is coming up against you it is not your job to figure out what to say but to just simply repeat the words of the Lord. Jesus was simply quoting Deuteronomy chapter 8 verse 3, he just reiterated what he said a long time ago. When you are coming up against the devil the only thing you have to do is repeat the Creator's words and have faith in the Creator's words. We all know that satan used to be an angel. And all angels were created by the Word of God ,satan was created by the words of God. When you speak make sure that you speak the words of God. And satan has to obey the Creator's voice and there isn't anything on the face of the earth that does not have to abide by the rules and regulations of God's Word ,so by faith we speak the Word of God and the devil has to flee. And don't ever forget that you are a child of God. In other words you are the offspring of God himself! If God spoke into existence the Earth and the moon and the stars and everything that is . God says "you are my child and I expect for you to speak into your situation and change the outcome". Just like God Spoke into darkness and converted darkness over into light at the beginning of the World. God is now saying I want you to speak into your dark situation and convert darkness into light and bring that bad situation into a good situation and convert that negative over into a positive. God has given us the promise that his word will not fail when we trust in his Word. It is time to speak to your dead situation and raise it up to life!

The Joy of the Lord

The Word of God says in Nehemiah 8:10, "the joy of the Lord is our strength".What I have come to find out is is that the enemy is trying to rob you of your joy and put you in a state of depression.  Depression is designed to paralyze you so that it kills your ability to fight back. The enemy wants your joy because your joy is attached to your strength and your strength is attached to your courage and your courage is attached to your faith and your faith attached to your miracles. Whatever you need, it takes faith to receive it. So I speak to your spirit today and I want to let you know child of God it is time for you to let the devil know, you will not steal my joy, for the joy of the Lord is my strength. And could it be that the reason why the devil is trying to attack you is  because he is more intimidated by you than you are of him. That reminds me of a story, as I was stepping out of my car one day, I saw a bee on the ground. I said "let me go ahead and step on this bee and kill it". God spoke to me and said why are you going to kill the bee? I said "because it could possibly sting me". God said "don't kill the bee but this is the revelation I want to give you". People try to kill what they are intimidated by! Could it be that the reason why the enemy has been trying to attack you is because he knows that you have faith in God,  you trust God and you depend on God. The devil cannot allow your full potential to come to the surface so that"s why he tries to attack you and make you think that you are insignificant but the devil is a liar. Don't believe that lie because he is the father of lies and he is trying to deceive you into thinking that you are worthless and that God doesn't love you. And that you don't have a purpose but let me tell you something child of God you have a purpose in this earth and their are people waiting on you. These people are waiting to see what God has put in you. What God has put in you is literally  going to change the rest of your life, and is going to change the world. It is going to inspire the world in such of a way that it will lift their spirits. So don't give up, don't faint. The joy of the Lord is your strength. And the devil may send people to you trying to rob you of your joy and happiness but don't allow anyone to take away your smile. This joy that I have the world did not give it to me and the world cannot take it away.
   

The Power of your Confession

The Word of God says in Proverbs 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue  and they that love it shall eat the fruit there of". What God is saying today is that you have power in your tongue , power in your confession. It reminds me of a story, Mark 5:35-36 where Jairus has come to Jesus  and says “Jesus my daughter lieth at the point of death but if you come and lay your hands on her she shall live". Jairus first made a powerful confession that his daughter would live but as soon as they begin to travel to his house, the devil sent someone (that was sent from jairus’ house) to cancel out his confession . And they simply said to Jairus “your daughter is already dead there's no reason for you to trouble Jesus” but when Jesus heard that negative word spoken he spoke up and said “don't be afraid only believe” and they continued travel to Jairus house. Jesus laid his hands on his daughter and raised his daughter up to life. I believe that there is power in your confession. And once you make your confession of what you believe, the devil is going to try to send someone to cancel out your confession and try to get you to come in agreement with a negative report. All I'm saying today is that don't allow anyone to cancel out your confession. Believe in God and believe in the Word of God!

The Prayer of Jabez

The Word of God says in 1 Chronicles 4:10 "And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed,and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested". This scripture is such a famous scripture because Jabez is calling on the God of Israel because he recognized that God changed Jacob into Israel. God changed a trickster into a prince with God. So now Jabez is hoping that God can do the exact same thing for him. And you may be wondering can God really change me? Let me tell you something child of God the Bible says "therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature old things are passed away behold all things are become new". So Jabez says Lord if you can change Jacob I know you can change me. He says Lord, you don't even have to change my name but just change my character. Jabez understood something, he understood that it is not the name that dictates the character but it's the character that dictates the name. And you're probably wondering what's wrong with  the name Jabez? Jabez actually means Sorrow maker or Troublemaker. In other words his mother named him something based on the pain that she was going through. And maybe you've been called a lot of names in your life because of someone else's pain but I come to declare to you today that you are a child of God and that God calls you blessed! You are children of the Most High God and I come to encourage you today to let you know that just like Jabez, you can overcome what you have been called. And let me tell you child of God you cannot stop people from calling you names but you can stop responding to the names that you have been called. Be encouraged, God is about to enlarge your territory he's going to let you know that his hand has been with you the whole time when you were going through that storm in your life. The Bible says that he's going to grant your request. Just know that your pain was only for your gain!

The Spirit of Fight

The Word of God says in Psalms 144:1. Blessed be the Lord my strength which teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight. What God is simply saying to us is that I have been training you behind the scenes. No one ever saw you coming but I have been training you for this appointed time in your life.Yes you have been going through a lot because I have been taking you through a Spiritual Boot camp. I had to be certain that you would dedicate to me whole heartily when I brought you out. And I made sure that you would be better than you've ever been in your entire life. I'm talking about the "Spirit of Fight". I gave you the Spirit of Fight so that you can fight for your family, your dreams, your visions, your destiny and your family. And sometimes you wonder why Lord am I going through so much in my life but the fact is is that I have been preparing you for your destiny. Because "Excellence requires Preparation". And there's a story that God reminds me of, when my baby girl Victoria would be sleep in the bed and she will have bad dreams. She would be crying in her sleep. So I would just simply go over to her and whisper in her ear, "Daddy is here ,mommy is here and Jesus is here, you are okay, its going to be alright". And all of a sudden she would  stop crying. I would not wake her up. I would not take her out of the fight because I wanted her to continue to fight but I just wanted her to know that she was not in the fight by herself and we were in the fight with her. And sometimes God will not take you out of the storm but he will let you know that he is in the storm with you. And you will have some great storms in your life but I come to let you know that Jesus has promised that he will never leave you nor forsake you.  So take courage and know that God is on your side. God has been preparing you by giving you the Spirit of Fight to let you know that you're not fighting alone but angels are with you, heaven is with you and God is with you. So don't ever forget that God has taught us how to fight. He has taught us how to "fight the good fight of faith" and how to "stand still and see the salvation of the Lord". And God will take away every option that you have so that you know for yourself that it was God by himself that delivered you out of this storm. So don't lose heart, don't faint "but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up with wings as eagles they shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint". Your time is coming. Don't give up!

You are my child

The Word of God says in John 1:12, "But as many as received him to them gave he power to become the sons of God". I’ve come to let you know today that when you received Jesus Christ he not only wiped your slate clean of all the debt of sin.  He said I am going to do more than that.I am going to make you like myself. And that's why the Word of God says "As he is so are we in this world". Jesus says, I am going to make you acceptable to our Heavenly Father and introduce you to the God Class Family. So God decides to expand his family by sending his son Jesus to give us the blueprint of how he want his sons and daughters to live. Christ was showing us how we should conduct ourselves under the new laws of the God class family. That's why the Bible says that you must be born again. You were born into Adam’s family but now Jesus Christ is coming to introduce you to God's family. Adam used to be your natural father but now God Almighty is your Heavenly Father. And that's why we pray "Our Father which art in heaven......". God is your spiritual father, so what I'm simply saying today is that you have a brand new family that loves you. The fact is is that the enemy is trying his best to convince you that no one loves you, but the Word of God says “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever shall believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life”. So I'm here to tell you today brother or sister that God really does
 love you and he would not have invested so much in you if he did not love you. Be encouraged today that you are now sons and daughters of God. The Word of God says in Galatians 4:5-6 that we have been adopted as God's sons and daughters and that now the same spirit that is in Jesus Christ is now in us. So the question is, how can we make it to heaven when we have made so many mistakes ,we've done so much wrong but the Bible says that its not based on your righteousness but it's based on his righteousness. Who? Jesus Christ. This righteousness is not for us to abuse and live our lives the way we want to. He died for us so now we belong to him, it's time for us to live our lives the way he wants us to. Jesus Christ made us right with the Father. Jesus Christ (who is God) literally made you his brother, so now our Big Brother has made us right with the father and because of that we can have an everlasting fellowship with our Heavenly Father. And for that Lord we say thank you and we love you, in Jesus name Amen!
