Character & Charisma

1 Cor. 13:2 “What if I could prophesy and understand all secrets and all knowledge? And what if I had faith that moved mountains? I would be nothing, unless I loved others.”(CEV)

It is so amazing that the Holy Spirit is so involved. Sadly, sometimes we just run off without engaging Him. If we do not engage the Holy Spirit, we cannot get the best that God has to offer. The quality of our lives here on earth as believers, is directly proportional to our relationship with the Holy Spirit, to how much of Him we allow in our lives, to how open we are to Him, to how open we are to His leading, to His direction, to His guidance.

Taste Test

Ps. 119:103 “How sweet your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey.”

When people encounter you, what taste does it leave in their mouths? Bitter, sweet, or bland? God wants people to encounter us as His children and have an unforgettably sweet taste, a sweetness that they cannot shake off. Remember our illustration from yesterday’s devotional?

For Not On

Philip.1:21-22 “For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ…” (emphasis added)

We must not confuse a full life with a meaningful life. Full does not necessarily translate to being fulfilled. It is possible to be full and not be fulfilled. We often try to fill our lives with sports, or watching television, or with social media, or with partying. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange III

Isa.61:3 “To all who mourn in Zion, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, oil of joy instead of mourning, a garment of praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.” (NLT & NIV]

God is trading His beauty for our ashes and He is doing it in every area. We are going from barrenness to Fruitfulness, from sorrow to Joy, from bondage to Freedom, from loss to Recovery, from death to Life, from poverty to Wealth, and from shame to Honour. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange II

Ps. 126:1-2 (KJV) “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.”

God is trading His beauty for our ashes and He is doing it in every area. God is giving us beauty for ashes, from sorrow to Joy. God is giving us His joy in the place of sorrow. Read the rest of this entry

Source Dependent II

1 Chro.4:10 (VOICE) “He asked the God of Israel, “Please bless me and extend my territory. Let Your hand be with me and guard me from harm so I will not experience pain as my mother did.” And God did just that.”

It Is The Source That Creates The Stream. A stream that forgets its source will dry up. You will not forget your Source and you will not dry up in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Let Out!

John 7:38 (NIV)Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.

Streams bring value and streams bring life. Please read Ezekiel 31:4-9 & 47:1-12. Your life will bring value, your life will bring life to people. Read the rest of this entry

Charisma III

Acts 4:30-31 “Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.

The second grouping of the Sign Gifts is the Power Gifts. The power gifts are gifts that do. The first is the Gift of Faith, the second is Gifts of Healing, and the third is Working of Miracles. A lot of these gifts work together and they kind of intersect but are different. Read the rest of this entry

Quality Check

Isa.5: 3 Now, you people of Jerusalem and Judah, you judge between me and my vineyard. 4 What more could I have done for my vineyard that I have not already done? When I expected sweet grapes, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?” [with emphasis].

The fourth Marah I have been asked to address interestingly is The “Marah” of God. Can God have a Marah situation? Apparently, He can, and he shows us in His Word. Read the rest of this entry

No More!

Isa.40:2 (GW) “Speak tenderly to Jerusalem and announce to it that its time of hard labor is over and its wrongs have been paid for…” [with emphasis].

In line with my instructions, I have been speaking into specific Marah situations; the Marah of No Helper was the first and yesterday we dealt with the Marah of Mis-stepping. Read the rest of this entry
