God’s masterpiece 

4 Jul

Did you know what you see in the mirror is farther from God’s truth concerning you? What if I told you, God had a plan from before you were born to be his greatest gift. It’s true, you are his and he sees you as his final masterpiece.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬ KJV)

Now you know that above verse just clarified it all! From this day forward, God wants you to yield to his doing and when he speaks, listen. This is all for you and during the process, it’s not always going to feel so good and others may not understand but God. Yes, a process and we must be patient with those he places before us too. I’m reminded of this verse:

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭28‬ KJV)

You know that there’s areas where God is working on you, therefore he is also working on others. Our good is surrounding us, them, and all to further his kingdom on earth, And to come. Believe that!

This morning I started working on my newest project of restoring a used piece of furniture. What condition do you think it was in? How many others passed by this furniture or how long had it been in this condition? Either way, I proudly bought it from a church rummage sale and I also, like God, had a plan from that very day. You see, I am already proud of my final masterpiece because I see it done before I even began. As I started to sand it’s old residue off, I had a smile knowing this piece is going to be wonderful. Oh boy, there has already been times I had to press hard in certain areas because that residue didn’t want to come off but those areas did come off and not that long, either. In the end a masterpiece will have been discovered, and it’s maker loved it from the beginning.

Will your be available to your Father when he is at work? Will you submit, when everyone else is not? Will you be forgiving to yourself for not being the vessel he called you to be? My brethren we all are being worked on, don’t forget that. Therefore today is a fresh start if you chose to repent and allow the creator to finish his work. I pray you will see yourself as God sees you and have a heart of mercy for those that are in progress too. God bless you beloved! And Happy 4th of July in Christ!❤️

Lies Lies Lies! “Marriage is going out of style” – USA Today

1 Jun

When the world releases lies across the television, radio, podcast, broadcast, and especially wolves in sheeps clothing. Beloved open your ears to God and his word, over everything else. There was a columnist that wrote to the single audience concerning marriage on June 1, 2015, today. She stated, “Marriage is going out of style,” and just her column title alone had me saying, “absolutely not!” My God is bigger than anyone’s statistics and views on his people. So I ask you, do you belong to God or the world? Do you desire marriage or singleness? Whatever your heart desires, it shall be done, according to his word. Not some columnist who wants the number one reviews.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. – Psalm 37:4

Did you read the above verse? My beloved friends, I plead with you to understand this, if you delight yourself in the Lord, everything else that is designed for you shall be given unto you. The word is very much alive for his beloved, and it may seem like I am repeating myself but God does not lie. Let the truth set you free, and believe his word over everything else. If you come across this link for the column written or any others like it, then I encourage you to first ask God to reveal the truth. Many of you are wondering, but if facts say marriage is not increasing, then it must be real. No way, because many fell for the words of the world over God but many have left the church, God, and his word. So I urge you to remain still in Christ as times will get worse but we must believe God over everything else. If it goes against his word, then beloved, you know it’s wrong.

There are times you may ask yourself, is marriage for me? Am I supposed to be married? Does God really have someone for me? Marriage isn’t for everybody, so I will just live for myself and do what feels good. Let me say, if you feel confused about this subject God is not the author of confusion. If you want peace about God’s word, seek him and shut the lies of the enemy in your ears. Marriage has an abundance of blessings, and if you want truth here it is;

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion… – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

May you hear and believe the word of the Lord, for God is for you Beloved!

Loving his way

7 May

Why is it so hard to please people? Why aren’t those we love, not seeing the Godly love he desires us to display? Why do we forget God’s love is for everyone? I’ll tell you why, often times we try on our own to do God’s work. It’s going to take the fruit of the spirit to produce good fruit.

Well God’s love appears in those hard places everyday and he desires it to flow through each of us. Today I witnessed the Godly kind of love produce a beautiful smile. I never would of thought bringing my extra fruit to my coworkers, would bring a smile to someone struggling with joy. (Yes, the fruit I was mentioning really was some extra oranges and bananas I had bought, but the Godly fruit we need to have is what’s behind it all.) Not only did it bring a smile to her, that fruit gave me hope that anyone is not too far to receive the Godly love he has placed in each of us. You see now I am already rejoicing, because I know God is at work and my trust is in him. 

We have so many ways to share God’s love. All it took today was a piece of fruit. Sometimes we go through trials, but those trials aren’t always going to last. At work you may be faced with troubles. In our homes we are perplexed, but not destroyed. Apostle Paul speaks about these feelings, and yes thank God we don’t have to walk by feelings but by faith. 

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ KJV)

If you have it, give it. If you give it, it shall be given to you. Ourlives are not our own and yet we live many hours thinking, me, me, me, me, me. Remind yourself of someone else’s pain, loss, discouragement, sadness and hate. When you do, you will also discover they need the Godly love you received, even more. I would even take it further, and remind yourself of how far he’s brought you. I know I wasn’t always lovable but many loved me no matter what it looked like.

I challenge you brethren to think and love your neighbor as you love yourself today. Be blessed beloved because when you give yourself no other option, than to be blessed, you’ll see his blessings surround you. 

Who can find her?

3 May

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭31‬:‭10-12‬ KJV)

Who is your husband beloved single women? Most of us can’t get God being our husband. Guess what, he is! Isaiah 54 tells me, he is.
Most of us have been taught from Disney movies, parents, schoolmates, books and dreams, that Prince Charming would rescue us from singleness. In this world, that is farthest from the truth. Let’s see, singleness isn’t something to be rescued from. This walk is truly a time to grow and enjoy who you are in God. I also find that the love we long to have is even better with him first. There are many lessons in this season but once you grab the truth that your husband was there all along, it’s the best.
 Now thank God for his word! If we hadn’t fed ourselves of his bread of life, we’d still be searching. So beloved, I challenge you to read the verse ‭Proverbs‬ ‭31‬:‭10-12‬ again. Yes for many Christians, it’s been years of wanting to be “the wife” in the natural.
Today I am honored to apply that to my Savior. If you can take a moment to apply it to him too, I believe we will walk more blessed because we’ll be more with him. I just wonder where would the shift take the body of Christ if we singles would actually shift our focus and recognize Christ as our “husband?” How would “the world” react to women of God shifting their focus?
 Now at first I was implying women but my brothers aren’t exempt from being God’s bride too. He is returning for the church (his bride) and that would be you too. This may take a lot of mediation on your part but God is much bigger than our minds.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭55‬:‭8‬ KJV)

Be blessed and renewed in his word beloved!

Have you stubbed your spiritual toe?

2 May

Do you remember when Jesus was all you wanted? Do you remember when the day God was all you needed? Maybe even that time you received Jesus as Lord and thought, “God take me now.” I sure do remember experiencing this supernatural anointing and fulfilling love. Well don’t get it confused, God is always very present. He remembers that day too and awaits our reunion all the time.

There will be times God seems so far, and your choices will come down to whether you’re going to press in him or what I call “stub your spiritual toe.” The stubbing is a phrase to spiritually backsliding or what may seem like falling.

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. (‭Psalms‬ ‭37‬:‭24‬ KJV)

Now the word tells me, we aren’t able to utterly be cast down because God keeps his angels charge over us. Isn’t that awesome, he knows in this flesh we won’t always get it right but he has a plan for everything.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. (‭Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭11-12‬ KJV)

If you experienced the “stubbing your spiritual toe” like I have in the past, then I believe you too have gone to the Father and repented like I did. Saints understand God is a forgiving God and loving one at that. I just want to encourage you today to not look back. Get your spiritual healing, because stubbing that toe really does hurt. No one is perfect but Jesus himself! Renew your mind in his word, his love, his anointing, his fruit, his Spirit and fellowship with like minded Believers too. 

If you thought it ended at your worst, here’s a reminder of what our Lord has spoken about ourlives, 

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. (‭Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭14-16‬ KJV)

May you be encouraged to not beat (or not forgive) yourself over a “stubbed spiritual toe” and may his love overflow in your spirit this day. Amen.

Overcoming the “Not feeling it”

28 Apr

Most of you know that I serve in the United States of America, in the worlds most finest Navy. My current location is on an Army Base here in Colorado. Is that different? Quite so, actually. It takes a person who is able to adjust and conquer the mission, with a willingness to overcome the daily task given.

Like today I noticed some Army soldiers out doing ruck marching, out on the dirt roads. As I drove by, I gazed out my vehicle watching them march on by. I was more than sure many weren’t even “feeling it” or hoping it would be an early day. Either the beaming sun, nice breeze, or mind on something else. Really, who knows what was going through their heads but one thing is for sure, they weren’t being physically forced to march. The thing was, they were doing it!

As Christians we also may relate to not wanting to march in righteousness, especially since we’re faced with much darkness daily. We’re expected to go out, be the light and share the gospel but often times it could appear discouraging, like the soldiers going out on their ruck marching.

I know first hand how one can feel like quitting or just going with the flow. Although Jesus didn’t die that we would be mediocre, sluggish, weary, and worst of all, to be quitters. We have to remind ourselves he never said it would be easy or always soiritual high in this life. Although he did say this;

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ KJV)

The above verse is great to remember, reminding ourselves that life is more abundant. Don’t quit now, let the following verses renew in you the promises.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭27-30‬ KJV)

When you say yes to Jesus, you’re saying yes to eternal life and many promises just for being a Christian. Don’t allow the flesh to discourage you. Your life is victorious in Christ, and the devil will try anything to make you believe it’s not. If you need encouragement, (be accountable) always have a believer you can trust to pray with you. Surround yourself with strong people of faith. Most of all have a good relationship with God. He is always present but he wants to hear from you. Your time with him is as important, Amen.

Beauty Awaits

16 Apr

Can you imagine what it will be like to stand before God? Maybe you remember the first time you layed your eyes on your husband, wife, or child, and God opened your eyes to beauty. Although nothing compares to his beauty and presence. Maybe you haven’t experienced that but you remember the first time your spiritual eyes were open to see his glory.

In this life we are faced with many trials, but one thing is guaranteed to those who received salvation (Romans 10:9-10), we shall see him and all his glory. So no matter what you are experiencing, know that his beauty is here now, his Holy Spirit.

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭7‬ KJV)

You see, what you have is more precious than gold. It won’t perish like gold does, and though your faith is tried by fire, one thing is certain. Praise, Honor, and Glory may appear before Jesus. Just to stand in his beauty, and for him to look upon you with amazement because you reflect him. I pray you receive his beauty today, and may you go through life being beautiful like your Abba Father. Amen.

Reference Reading: 1 Peter 1:1-7

When God gets done

15 Apr

What do you see when you look in the mirror? What lies are you holding on to? What do you wish you looked like or didn’t? These are just a few questions that come to mind when we think naturally. However, in the spirit are we agreeing with the Creator and Author of our lives? He has spoken!

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬ KJV)

What does this mean? The God of our salvation did not stop at creation, he has a plan and an awesome one at that. You see, the faster you begin believing our mighty God, the faster you’ll notice his hands at work. Don’t stop at things he has given you strength to quit doing or even just believing he’s Jesus. There is way more in this walk, God expects more from us, and he’s simply not in the business of taking from you. He wants to bless you! So the best way to get that blessing, is to be one.

I am determined to see God at work in my life. The more I turn to him, the more I see the new me. What’s the “new me,” you ask?

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭17‬ KJV)

That’s right! God didn’t make any mistakes when he created you. You are his and he just isn’t finished with you. Keep living victoriously and pleasing to the Father. Your results are well on the way. When God gets done, you won’t even recognize, you! Amen.

Living for a fulfilling purpose 

14 Apr

I remember living that crazy life of wild nights, trying to grasp what life was really all about. I would tell my mom, “why can’t I stop drinking, and why do I continue on this road of destruction, only to get the same outcome?” My life then was on a roller coaster of pure hell, I had highs and lows but it never gave me the full satisfaction. It was when I finally had enough and was introduced to a man who had the all the answers I was searching for in all the wrong things. It was Jesus, he knew my pain and above all he wanted to show me his love. You know I thought I knew love but it wasn’t until I surrendered my heart to him that an unfailing love captured my young heart.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. (‭Romans‬ ‭13‬:‭12-13‬ KJV)

When you know that God is all about love, you’ll try him and when you know his truth, freedom from all those bondages will suddenly be broken from your grip. Make today a day of freedom in him and allow your future to be thankful for a decision only you can make. Be blessed in wholeness of Jesus in your heart, Amen.

 

So glad God didn’t ask

10 Mar

Lord bless this entry for your glory. Tonight I just want to say thank you Lord. You are everywhere, and I pray at this moment someone will receive your blessing from this revelation. Sometimes it’s hard to swallow the word God gives us. We feel as though God asked us something, maybe even waiting for us to ask him the most famous question, why God? Well he speaks often to us and we have to learn not to harden are hearts, so we may be able to be trusted right then and again. Look how the disciple Annanias responds to God:

And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: (‭Acts‬ ‭9‬:‭10-13, 15‬ KJV)

Arent we just blessed that God doesn’t have to run anything by us? If he had to, there wouldn’t be miracles, deliverance, problems solved, and prayers answered. So Lord thank you, for showing us that when you speak, it’s for our good. Help us to obey you and to love like you do too. Thank you Abba Father, and may all reading understand your word is for our good.

I am married to the Father

5 Jun

It’s the first marriage you will ever have! Some singles are looking through their natural eyes saying, “sure but don’t you want someone here on earth to say, I am married to so and so?” Yes most singles do, however the word is clear about the truth and I will just start by sharing his word with you:

For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. – Isaiah 54:5

Let’s not hesitate to understand what was just read, apply those words in your life. The quicker we get that, the quicker love may be expressed in such a way we won’t want nothing other than God’s type of love. Learning his ways of marriage is so wonderful. I recently asked God to teach me his way on marriage. I tell you what, be careful what you ask because the Father is so wonderful. He wont miss a beat about what he knows we need to know. From thinking about being with anyone else, to finances, to raising children, to careers, submission (men or women to the Father first) and so on. Gods ways are better, and he will give us exactly that abundance he speaks of. It’s not going to happen by committing those same sins, dating many people, searching online sites, reading “how to find love” books and doing what your best friend did to get their God given mate. I stand with you beloved, because like you, I am believing God’s word is so real it’s a matter of God given timing when that blessing will come full birth and the world will know something took place. Now when I say something took place, I seriously mean God stopped that Kingdom mans eyes to set them on me and I will be the one he seen fit for his life as a helpmate. Beloved, your heart is for God and I pray you won’t stop loving on him. You have to know, if we can love Jesus always, our marriage on earth won’t be a block to the King.

Father God, thank you for this opportunity to call you husband. Your love is continuous and never ending. I pray all reading this may recognize and receive your word, and spiritual guidance to making Kingdom moves towards having a spiritual marriage. Help us to make this marriage a serious one and for other singles (unjust and just) to be compelled towards loving you first and always. We are doers and your word is increasing us, thank you Lord!

It’s not over

1 Jan

Father God we come to you with thanks for another year and all that you have done for your children. Your love is so great, nothing can separate us from you and your promises are yes and amen. If it had not been for you on our side, we would be demolished and left behind. Lord every word that comes to mind, and typed allow your holy spirit to intercede for the equipping of the body and edifying to us as well. Just thank you for your mighty acts and love that continues to flow in us and through us and among us every second of ourlives. I shout with great expectation for 2014 is going to expose and strengthen the body like never before, have your way and may our hearts love our brethren back to life, restoring and healing the body. Amen.

The time is evening and the first day of 2014 has come nearly to an end. There are many days ahead in this year, and what lies ahead is only expectations of your glory revealed on earth. Some of us would like to see tangible things, and others would simply say, “Lord if you didn’t give me nothing else, your love is all I need”. We know our needs will be met, because we take you for your word and say, thank you.

If you were expecting something from God in 2013 and didn’t receive it, you are where God needs you and that’s seeking him. There isn’t a rule to getting his best, he just wants us so in love with him that nothing will take your attention. When he gives his gifts they are beyond good, they are perfect. I believe the posture you are in is creating God’s perfection for you and that gift you are waiting on. How many of us want gifts? Do we long for a gift that would be already used and no value? Maybe a gift half opened and damaged product? Or how about, a gift that looks good on the outside and when you open it up, “Surprise” nothing in it and totally empty. Let’s take a long reflection to what it is you expect God to give you. I don’t know about you, my gift will be “Perfetion”, how do I know you ask? Let me just tell you my secret, and maybe some of you already know the secret too.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.-James 1:17

Awe, doesn’t that just bless your soul knowing God is in the business of giving us “Perfection”! Yay, we win! The world will do and say anything to make you feel, or distract you with the lies the enemy (the devil) would be excited for you to believe. If he can get you to believe his lies, he has you way off track and settling for the decoy. Then your life is daily tormented with his oppression, depression, hurt, shame, guilt, fear, and just off on a road to isolation. Beloved there is a way to keep this walk a journey filled with joy and excitement for God’s will and perfection. On my journey he has allowed me to believe the lies, decoys and even a lot of the evil feelings I just mentioned. If you are currently in any of that emotional pain, I ask you to take some, if not all and apply them into your life:

1. Pray (earnestly to your Lord)

2. Asking God to forgive you for believing the lies, instead of his word.

3. Put a end to that distraction, decoy, relationship or soul-tie.

4. Surround yourself with people on fire for God. (1 Corinthian 1:10)

5. Seek Godly counsel. (Psalm 1)

This is your life, you have been given a free will to do what you decide. Remember the decisions that led you to read this blog and hear the good word towards having a successful christian walk as a single man or woman. When you make God your Lord he will be interceding on your behalf but you have to do your part here on earth. Mighty man or woman, I see you getting stronger, obeying, listening, and blessing those around you too. Don’t quit and don’t fight God’s will, he is already in motion the moment you said yes. That contract was signed sealed! The problem is some of us never knew that, because reading God’s word was the last thing we did. Right now he (meaning the devil) is done, he has no power, no word, no love for you and that means you don’t have no love for him or his evil ways. Keep pressing beloved!

 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise – Ephesians 1:13

Didn’t I tell you, YOU are HOLY SPIRIT sealed of promise. That means God knew what he was doing and now you know he meant what he said about YOU!

Father God we just thank you are going forth on our behalf to kick the enemies butt. Make your presence known on earth through us and for us. Your love is the evidence of my life, and we believe that the gift of “Perfection” is in movement for your beloved. I am your beloved and you are my Father. Make my heart to be still, my mind to think of you always, my soul to be free from distraction, decoys and soul-ties that are not of you, and surround me with your angels to minister onto me daily. May my ears be opened towards your voice and shut, to the strange voices now in Jesus name, Amen.

Keeping hope alive in my life

2 Nov

Lord we thank you for the life you have blessed us with this day.  May the word be received and take root where we may develop the spiritual and natural growth you are giving us -this day! Thank you again just for your goodness, love, mercy, and forgiveness that continually flows in our lives. Make every word be heard according to what your spirit is saying this morning. We don’t take it for granted, and we give you the glory for such an honor to be daughters and sons in your kingdom, Amen.

I have to say, many of us have forgotten the principles of God. We make the things we see to become reality, and feed ourselves of the pity we are faced with, just long enough to forget God’s word. After dwelling in that place of devastation, disgruntle, depression, horrible, and dysfunctional mind set, we leave barely enough room to receive the blessing of God. What you ask, is the blessing of God? I know it to be hope.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1

I can hear it now, how does one even begin to hope for something that you can not physically see? That principle is for those that understand faith, and knowing that the God we serve has everything we need in his hands. I believe the God we so freely claimed as Abba Father, is more than capable of making our hopeful dreams to come to pass. When your mind no longer works in overload, attempting to analyze God, he is able to do what he said he would do. As single christians, there is more in our season behind the scenes than we think. He knows more than we do, what it takes to heal, deliver, teach, and develop his sons and daughters to become all that he said you would be. Imagine God planning out your life and mines, don’t you believe he is a God that desires greatness for you and I? I do, and I will say this, he knows after the life (if thats what you want to call it) I lived. He began instantly working on my behalf for the things and blessings I would pray for. Now I didn’t see the blessings of God in the natural, right away. Eventually I would give him the glory for the manifestation, but in our hope is when we develop the things not seen.

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.- Romans 8:24-25

Our walk in this life calls for some mighty belief in our Lord and Savior. Your walk is not a journey where you are alone, it’s a journey where the Father is and will always be right by your side. Invite him in your life, to be more than a few words a day,, a thought or two, a quick prayer, and even at times not a pleasant view while being angry at your Lord. This next scripture will make you to always remember “Keep hope alive.”

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.- Proverbs 13:12-14 

Father I pray every one of your children reading, receives an abundance of life through this writing, this day. May we continue make impact in those lives around us through applying the word. Keep our hearts filled with hope for we know and trust your word and count it faithful for you spoke it. We thank you and love you for all that you spoke before we ever even knew you existed, in Jesus name, Amen.

Gifts are meant to be opened

2 Sep

Lord we thank you for this day, may your word bless our spirits and equip us towards your will in the kingdom here on earth. May those surrounding us come to know you by our walk and fruit. Strengthen us in those weaken areas in our single walk with you. Lord we give you the honor and glory for being God and God alone! 

This morning I was blessed with your mighty word of being blessed with the gift of salvation. I pray we all truly understand the gift you have given us, and may those that may be reading that have yet to receive you come to be blessed as well with your gift towards your children. Open their ears to hear as the learned as well. 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God – Ephesians 2:8 

Lord as singles we often times remember the past as though it is the present. We understand the salvation and forget the gift you have given us. Help us to walk worthy of your gift, making this season of our life a blessing back to you by honoring what you did for us. I believe the love you have for us is so far greater than we can ever imagine. Many times over you could of left us in sin, or to end up with that crazy person that was never meant for us. You led us out of captivity, and in to your arms and pulled us out the pit we once knew. As we walk, along this journey bring your love into every situation and show us how to make you Lord over them. We may not fully understand the love you have, but open our ears as the learned to receive more of you this day. 

Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men – Psalm 68:18

On top of the gift of salvation, God has many gifts for men as well as you see in the above scripture. Seek him and learn of him. I know he won’t keep it for himself, he wants you and I to operate in our gifts. 

A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men – Proverbs 18:16

All these things are for us, so again I encourage you to continue in the things of God and he will bless you according to the scriptures.

Father God we thank you again for your word, for the gifts you have given us. For guidance, resources, and a heart for you. May our conversations, walk, and prayers be God led and produce the substance of faith through manifestation before man through our gifts. As you bring us before great men, keep us walking in humility, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding but more importantly in your love. These gifts are for you Lord, so help us to know that it is you that gave it to us and may it bless wherever you send it and as we go may we forever give you the glory in Jesus name Amen. 

Law is good

19 Aug

Lord we thank you this morning for the breath you have given us. May the word be revealed in such a way, that singles may grow in Christ. Make our paths easy towards the perfecting in us, keep us from the snares of the enemy this day, give us a clean heart to walk in such a way that others may see the purity and blameless life we live. Give others encouragement through us, and fill us with your love and overflow us in our lack that we may be filled with joy this day. Praise the Lord and may your love conquer a multitude of sin that is set in our paths, and in every conversation in Jesus name Amen.

Our laws have established the way we live in the world. Many find themselves before the judge, after being charged with breaking the law. This has housed many prisoners, and jailers to be put behind bars for a period of time. In which it has blessed the righteous because we are covered by this law. In these verses, I am getting ready to share, you will see that yes the law is good and not to stop us from living.

 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.-1 Timothy 8:11

Often times we think, “This is wrong that someone made a law like that” or “It’s not that serious.” As you see, this is that serious! Man can be down right wrong in many ways, not all are that way but the law blesses us to make righteous decisions. It also shows us that if we can obey the laws, we can obey God’s commandments in spirit and truth.

I remember making decisions that went against the law, just living a rebellious life and thinking I won’t get caught I am smarter than the law. Imagine that was just myself but even on a greater scale, how many among us live this life and with the reckless decisions, not only are they harming themselves, they can harm you or a loved one. Now think spiritually, if we pray for this reckless world, you bless them with your love and may set the captives free through God’s son Jesus. The holy spirit is our comforter, he leads us in prayer and he knows the reckless amongst us. Open your spiritual eyes to intercede for the lost and also for yourselves to make righteous decisions today. Our lives are but a blink to God, so count it all joy for he wants the best for you and I. The faster we obey, lawfully and spiritually, the faster you will see the promises of God manifest in your lives.

Father God help your sons and daughters make righteous decsions, living a life of purity and walking blameless amongst this world. Guide us on a journey of holiness, putting away the reckless lifestyle and a life of repentance. Pour your love among the singles that we would be renewed this day with your love, learning of your ways. We thank you for your love that never fails, that is so kind, and your plans that are of good and not evil. Bless those that have opened their ears to hear, and surround them with the angels of the Lord to protect and heal your children this day. Keep us seeking you all our days, we ask this in your name Jesus Amen.

What is love?

10 Aug

Father God we thank you for the revelation that has come from your word, may every word bless those that seek you and learn of your ways. Make our hearts open to your word, and keep us hidden from the enemies lies and traps concerning love in our season. Reveal the true love you have already freely given to us, that we may identify the authentic love you continually give. We praise you and honor you far more than our words off our lips, our life and actions will be the evidence of your salvation, and return for the bride. Thank you for your love Lord! Amen.

Many of us singles continually hear about the love that God has given and even look for it here on earth. We may not so much as step out and say, “yeah I look for love.” It’s the way single believers go about searching, by the old nature, or looking for it. God’s love doesn’t look anything like what we think it looks like. The holy spirit has spoken to me concerning this love and our actions about how it will come.

The other day I was led to read 1 Corinthians 13. When you get an opportunity read that chapter and meditate on God’s love, and declare your mind to operate in that love. I know the word doesn’t lie, when you take authority over your mind in such a way to move with God and not against him, thats when you’ll find God’s love far more awesome than what you thought was love. Although I won’t keep you guessing, here’s a few scriptures I felt led to share:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails…-1 Corinthians 13:4-8

After reading these scriptures and declaring this type of love over my life, I knew believing and speaking it changed my life right now. God is love. We also know that we must love.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.-1 John 4:8

We can’t change yesterday for the love we didn’t give or live, but we can ask the Father to restore those broken relationships, broken hearts, pain and understanding to his love through us. He is a just God, meaning when you come to the Father he will line everything back up according to his word. In these next scriptures you will read about the promises of God on restoration and the love he has for you and I:

Now it shall come to pass, when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the Lord your God drives you, and you return to the Lord your God and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your heart and with all your soul, that the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the Lord your God has scattered you. If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.-Deut 30:1-6

 There’s something awesome in a God that wants the best for you and I. His love speaks enough concerning you and I. If you obey him and when you truly love like he tells us, then you will know what love is and understand that love never fails.
Father God we thank you for the love you continually give us, we thank you for showing us what love is and how to love. Lord we just ask that in every relationship we have, and future relationships that we love you by obeying your word and loving one another. Help us to turn from any lust, and set us free from deception and confusion that may have entered in us. We ask this in your name Jesus, AMEN.

Temptation has NO power!

5 Aug

Lord we thank you for this day you have made, for the season we are in and for the growth we will receive in this time. May every word be planted and take root in our hearts to develop us into mighty singles on the field. We give you the glory for the blessings and teachings you have given us and above all your love, that can never be compared to. 

Many singles in the body, find themselves struggling with temptation and the enemies tactics. It’s no secret that he wants your soul, and he will use those close to us and even demonic powers to distract us from our Father and Savior. After coming across this passage on Jesus being tempted by Satan, it reminded me simply how were not exempt to the same foul treatment. 

Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.

The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.”

The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.”

 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”

The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you carefully;
 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”

Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”

When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.-Luke 4:1-13

Now this is just one season, Satan for one thing surely has no power. If you let him, he will destroy you and torture you freely. You have more strength than you may feel in that moment. 

Let the weakling say,
    “I am strong!”-Joel 3:10

Sometimes just speak the word! That isn’t a suggestion beloved, you have got to do your part, and not be slouched over as though you lost that battle. Make a move with your mouth, and even simply walking away is all you really need to do. Remember to whom you belong to, your God is bigger than whatever he tempts you with. Jesus was empty with food but the holy spirit was full dwelling in his belly. So that tells you what you need to kick the enemies butt! Receive the good and acceptable thing that led our Savior to have victory over our enemies and ascended into the heavens, seated at the right hand of the Father!

Father God, we thank you for your word this morning, may everyone reading that has been tortured, and tempted with evilness be set free by the word of the Lord. May you receive the glory for the testimonies and freedom we receive. Lord thank you and praise you this day in Jesus name, amen.

Be concerned on what concerns God

23 Jul

Lord I thank you for the word this morning, for your promises and truth revealed to me your daughter. You oh Lord, are excellent in all your ways, for this I praise you. May today be another and more increased knowledge and understanding of you and your ways to the singles in the body of Christ.

Just waking up is a great example of God’s faithfulness towards us. He always shows us daily, the biggest blessing to be able to breathe another day. We often times believe tomorrow will come and we think, “I will be here to trust that whatever will be there; will be” and yes often times people find out they awake to the living hell as the bible mentions.

May this day be different, we must awake to his new blessings in trusting that God alone, is life. Our concerns often times take off and run rapid through our minds, taking us on a journey we need not to be on. I find that being a single person, in the natural mind set that is, my concerns can get carnal and I begin reasoning with myself. You know, when I really think about it, it boils down to trying to figure out God for myself. Do you find yourself doing this too? Well brothers and sisters, I have God’s word on why we don’t want to do this:

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.-Romans 8:6

Awe, yes,isn’t this what we desire the life and peace of God surpassing our inner spirit man and mind? This word really blesses me, and reminds me that in Christ everything that I am concerned about is at peace when I shift to him. Here you see why even more:

The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.-Psalm 138:8

When we truly be at rest in him, it is then that what concerns you, he will easily remove the burden or prayers from you. I know there are things that I would love to see happen like yesterday but God’s timing is perfect. Isn’t that what he just said, “The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me”.  Now thats powerful alone! We have got to get to that place where perfect is all you want, I don’t know about you but the things I desire aren’t worth abandoning for carnal thoughts. When Christ alone has got things in control, it is then that you say, “Here God please take this burden, load, or heartache from me”. Surely, being his daughter, I have seen pain rise from my heart and healing immediately conquer the very place that ached. There isn’t a man on this earth that could give me what God has, not saying what man he brings in my life won’t be a blessing. It’s just that God has more than man or woman will ever bring us and in him is where we receive whole heartily love, healing and victory!

Lord you are the God that knows whats best for us, you make the concerns we have to pefectness. Lord we pray you will keep our hearts, minds and thoughts on you and may the peace you freely give bless our spirits now. Show us in a very descriptive way how to apply this word in our life and bless those that are going through the same things we have. May people see the victory in our walks, and may they give you the glory for the peace, strength, love, and healing we received from you. Lord we thank you now, praise you, bless and show our thanks by our daily walk in Christ this day, in Jesus name. Amen.

God’s sovereign strength -In me?

16 Jul

Lord I thank you for your sovereign power that dwells in me, I thank you for not allowing me to give up on thee, Lord I thank you for the renewal of my mind in you. I praise thee, and bless thee for you are my everything and will never leave me. Make this word come to life in the audience of the Singles in the body, give them the revelation you so easily given me, in Jesus name, amen.

Sitting here this morning truly encouraged by God’s word on his sovereign power. He not only has it but he gave it to you and I. I won’t go another moment without first sharing this verse with you: 

He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.-Isaiah 40:29

Our minds can’t fathom God and his ways, we try to wrap our carnal understanding around what he is up to, and we fail at it every time. Beloved God is so awesome at what he has for you and I. This morning I encourage you to lean whole heartily on his sovereign power, he has all the strength you need, it’s waiting on you to draw from that living water that dwells within you. Make up in your mind, that whatever has attacked you or concerns you from time to time, will not have any strength over you. Speak to that mountain and it shall be removed. Leave no room for doubt, and pray for the unbelief to be removed from you, that faith will be the only substance remains among you.  

Being in the military, really showed me my authority in Christ. I no longer have to wait for Wednesday night bible study, Sunday service, or calling an elder of the church to pray for me. I operate in the God given authority I was given as a daughter of God. I didn’t quite understand that it was even given to me until satan backed me in a corner, only to speak the word of God over my life and faced him like a cowboy showdown. Honestly, that was a spiritual showdown, and thats how you have to perceive that. Whenever you feel overwhelmed by his tactics or lies, the word is what you have. Especially being single, at times it may seem like there is no one to speak with about those personal battles, but God knows and he has equipped you righteously. Here you read about what God has given to Christ, which means it dwells in you:

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power  which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,  far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.-Ephesians 1:18-21

One last thing, here is the armor of God that’s a must have for every believer:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.-Ephesians 6:10-18

Lord we thank you again for the word of God that lives in us, your knowledge, wisdom, understanding and love. May your word permeate our minds, and keep us always ready against the wicked, principalities, powers, rulers of this world, and wicked host in the heavenly places. Lord we pray that we have perfect love in you, and route out all fear that may have ever entered in us. Let us operate in the authority you have given us, making us victorious in our walk over the enemy and anything contrary to your word. Lord we give you the glory and honor for being our Savior and Father. May others draw to you this day, by our walk here on earth. Lord thank you and we ask this in Jesus name, amen.

The true comforter

15 Jul

Lord we thank you for the love you so freely give, you are love and we praise you for being God alone, we bless your name Father and may that same love go forth to all man, that is inside of us, Amen.

Beloved may every word this morning, bring great comfort to your souls and quench the thirst in your spirit. We all at some point have thought, I need the comfort of another on this single journey or indirectly made comfort satisfaction on our own, only to realize Christ is the greatest comforter. You and I understand that man wasn’t designed to be alone, we know the word says: 

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.-Genesis 2:18

What we don’t get these days, God has a righteous potential mate for us. The issue is we must call on the comforter for healing, guidance, and his will for our lives. It would be so lovely to have everything God has for us but we ourselves must allow the process to take place. There is so much we must learn and that takes time, yes Godly timing. I don’t know about you, but in this season the best comfort comes from the Father. Here’s what the word says about him:

But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.-John 14:26

Yes yes yes and more yes! This is given to us and we must seek him and be quick to listen to him. Our lives are but a moment on earth, and every day we can have that comfort if we just seek it from the Father. I believe whole heartily that whatever he has told you, will not return unto him void. I once was told to hold on to God and his word like a pitbull mentality and I pray you will join me with that thought in mind daily. We were left with the guidance, and seeing for yourselves, as it is written we shall go before the Father when our flesh or the enemy tells us any lies that is contrary to God’s word. Be encouraged, for if you shall ever have an attack like that again, begin praying for your other brothers and sisters in Christ. We need one another, and we know there is power in prayer. 

Lord we thank you for sending the holy spirit to be our comforter, we praise you for being the rock and Lord over our lives. May we take your word for truth, never to retaliate against your word, and to be doers of your word. May others see you in us, that we may comfort one another in Godly love to the return of our Father. We know the promises you have for us, and we pray that we would not be deceived by the enemies lies. Keep our ears open towards you, and our senses open to you always, and to discern anything contrary to your word. May we know how to speak your word in season and out of season, bless us coming and going, in Jesus name, amen.
