In-Step

1 Samuel 9:24 “…Take a look. This was set aside for you. Eat and enjoy it all because this has been reserved for you until the appointed time… So Saul feasted with Samuel the rest of the day.” (Voice)

Do not rush. If you are an entrepreneur, I am sure you have heard the term first movers advantage. Another research shows that the first movers advantage is a myth. The research states that companies that are improvers, not the originators of the ideas, actually do far better than the Read the rest of this entry

Your Attitude

Prov.28:1 “The wicked flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion.” (AMPC)

It is a misnomer for you to be a child of God and you are afraid that your boss is going to fire you. While I am all for you respecting your boss, but your life is not in his or her hands. So what if he or she fires you? If God allows it then God has a bigger door for you. Read the rest of this entry

Come Boldly

Isa.1:18 “Come on now, let’s walk and talk; let’s work this out…” (Voice, emphasis added)

The Book of Psalms is filled with David confronting God. David would go to God and say, ‘God, we need to talk’. When you confront God, your destiny changes. And like we see in today’s anchor scripture, God actually invites us to come and confront Him, to come and work things out. Read the rest of this entry

The Process

Num.13:30-31 “But Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.”  Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against this people, for they are stronger…” (NRSV, emphasis added)

Caleb was not looking at the strength of the people to determine whether he could take the land, Caleb was looking at the strength of His God. Until we get this into our spirit, we remain fearful. You will remain fearful if you look at Goliath and look at yourself. Read the rest of this entry

Lift Your Voice

James 5:16 “…The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].” (AMP).

I pray that God will saturate your being with His presence. I pray that you will be empowered to speak to the Red Sea, and it will part. I pray that you will be empowered to speak to fire, and it will respond. I pray that you will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to bring forth and to create deliverers on earth for Read the rest of this entry

The Celebration

Mark 2:12And the man jumped up, grabbed his mat, and walked out through the stunned onlookers. They were all amazed and praised God, exclaiming, “We’ve never seen anything like this before!” [emphasis added].

Jesus was still there teaching, so why was the man who had just been healed going home or where was he going? His friends were on the roof throughout, they did not climb down the ropes they used to lower their friend. Read the rest of this entry

Worth It

Mark 2:4 “But when they realized that they couldn’t even get near him because of the crowd, they went up on top of the house and tore away the roof above Jesus’ head. And when they had broken through, they lowered the paralyzed man on a stretcher right down in front of him!” (TPT)

Compassion. Faith. Action. Persistence. Creativity. Cooperation. Our seventh lesson from Mark 2:1-12 is Sacrifice. Jesus was living in a rented apartment because we have no record of Jesus building a house or owning property. Read the rest of this entry

Together

1 Cor.3:8 “The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work.”

Compassion. Faith. Action. Persistence. Creativity. Our sixth lesson from Mark 2:1-12 is Cooperation. The four friends of the paralyzed man worked together. Luke 5:19 “…they went up on the roof and lowered the man on his mat through the ceiling into the middle of the crowd.” (NCV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Compassion, Faith & Action

Acts 3:6-7 “But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”  Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed…”

Yesterday, we looked at our first lesson, compassion, from the four friends in the story in Mark 2:1-12 [please read]. 1 Cor. 10:24 “People should be concerned about others and not just about themselves.” (GW, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Priority One

Nehemiah 10:35 “We promise to bring the first part of every harvest to the Lord’s Temple year after year—whether it be a crop from the soil or from our fruit trees.”

A lot of people are confused about tithing and there is a lot of abuse on tithing. But the truth is, it does not change the fact that tithing is a principle legitimately engraved in the Word of God. I shared with you yesterday that I have been tithing for as long as I can remember. Read the rest of this entry
