Luke 6:38 “Give to others, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands—more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you. (ERV)

And any doors that I shut and lock, no one will ever be able to open. Now I know everything you have done. So look! I am placing before you an open door that no one can shut! I know that you are not very strong, but you’ve kept my word and you’ve been faithful to me.” (CEV, paraphrased with emphasis). Read the rest of this entry
Faith Over Fear
Hebrews 11:27 “By faith, Moses left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw Him who is invisible.” (NIV, emphasis added)

And the fourth life-shaping choice Moses made was he Chose To Live By Faith, Not By Fear! Choose to live by faith and not by fear. Read the rest of this entry
Haggai 1:7 “Think very carefully about your choices.” (Voice)
Over the next few days, we are going to examine the life choices Moses had to make based on the things he valued which led to the greatness that God had for him.

Haggai 2:15 “Now think carefully about your choices from this point forward…” (Voice)
The choices you make are so powerful and they determine the life you live. One major way of changing anything is to change the value you place on it. You cannot claim to value your finances if you do not place value on the things God has said you should place value on. Read the rest of this entry
Psalm 40:7-8 “Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” (KJV, emphasis added)

Genesis 13:10-11 “Lot took a long look at the fertile plains of the Jordan Valley… The whole area was well watered everywhere … Lot chose for himself the whole Jordan Valley to the east of them. He went there with his flocks and servants and parted company with his uncle Abram.”
How do you choose your future? Can you actually choose your future? Imagine, the future presents itself as a series of doors, as though one is standing in a huge room with multiple doors. If the room is dark, all the doors will not be visible. Read the rest of this entry
See & Do!
Isa.43:19 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (emphasis added).
You can almost hear the pain in God’s voice when He asks, Do you not see it? And this is usually the challenge God has with people most times. What do you see? What does a pathway through the wilderness look like? What will rivers in the dry wasteland be like? Read the rest of this entry
