Who He Is, I

Ps.50:23 “… giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honours me.” (emphasis added)

When you are grateful, you cannot really be anxious. When you actually worship, you cannot be worrying, they cannot coexist. You have to choose one, is it going to be worry or is it going to be worship? Is it going to be anxiety or is it going to be gratitude? Read the rest of this entry

Calm Down!

Ephesians 4:26 “And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.”

Yesterday, we looked at the first of three things that are crucial in taking bold steps in life which is, Do Not Confuse Outrage With Courage. Most times we think we are being courageous when we are just acting out of rage not realizing that we are actually doing ourselves a disservice. Read the rest of this entry

In Life

Psalm 107:2 “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy” (KJV, emphasis added)

A believer’s attitude must flow from who he or she is in God. Who are you in God? The phrase ‘say so’ highlighted in today’s anchor scripture means to verbally declare. In other words, you are the redeemed of the Lord, show it! You are a child of the Most High God, show it Read the rest of this entry

Trustworthy

2 Chro.16:9 “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. What a fool you have been! From now on you will be at war.”

Gen.22:2-3Take your son, your only son—yes, Isaac, whom you love so much—and go to the land of Moriah. Go and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you.” The next morning Abraham got up early. He saddled his donkey and took two of his servants with him, along with his son, Isaac. Then he chopped wood for a fire for a burnt offering and set out for the place God had told him about.” Read the rest of this entry

New Season

1 Cor.9:26 “So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.”

Phil.3:12-13Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead” (NIV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Assurance

Joshua 21:43&45 “And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein… There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

 

Examine the following scriptures; Ps.105:18-19 They bruised his feet with fetters and placed his neck in an iron collar. Until the time came to fulfill his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character.” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Misconceptions

Acts 1:6-7 “So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?” He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know.”

Over the next few days, we will be looking at Time. The concept of time is something that we wrestle [struggle] with as human beings because of how we are wired. When something takes time, we do not like it. Read the rest of this entry

Battle Cry

Ps.140:6-7 “Eternal One,” I said, “You are my one and only God. Hear me, O Eternal, hear my humble cry for rescue. O Lord, Eternal One, power of my deliverance, You are my helmet in the day of battle.” (Voice)

A huge component in the creative process is prophesying. It is the first step in the creative process. Ezekiel was standing in the valley of dry bones, a hopeless situation, and God said to him “prophesy, son of man, and say…” [Eze.37:1-14, please read]. Read the rest of this entry

Fasting 101

Daniel 9:3 “So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and fasting. I also wore rough burlap and sprinkled myself with ashes.”            

There are certain fundamentals of the faith that we assume people understand. However, from engaging with people I have discovered that some people really do not understand these things. So, rather than assume we all understand, it is important that we explain the concept of fasting again. Read the rest of this entry

About Tongues, II

Heb.6:12 “and not grow lazy. We want you to walk in the footsteps of the faithful who came before you, from whom you can learn to be steadfast in pursuing the promises of God.” (Voice)

Yesterday, from our reading in 1 Corinthians 14:1-15, we saw that Paul did not have an issue with speaking in tongues, neither did he have an issue with speaking in tongues either in a public place or a private place. However, he had an issue with speaking in tongues in a public gathering to God’s people. Read the rest of this entry
