Hands On

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…”

Compassion. Faith. Action. Persistence. Our fifth lesson for the four men in Mark 2:1-12 is Creativity. These men were creative, they dared to do something different. Sometimes, we look at a situation and we accept defeat – it is my fault, these things are just the way they are so there is nothing I can do. Read the rest of this entry

Your Move

Rom.10:15 “And how can they hear if nobody tells them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is sent to do it? That’s why Scripture exclaims, A sight to take your breath away! Grand processions of people telling all the good things of God!” (MSG)

I pray that because you have come into the presence of God today, that God will breathe on you and teach you His Word by Himself. I pray that God will change your life and take you higher still. I also pray that what God needs to do in this season will be clear to you in Jesus Mighty Name. Read the rest of this entry

Profits, IV

Ezra 8:23 “So we fasted and earnestly prayed that our God would take care of us, and he heard our prayer.”

Fasting and praying add fuel to your sacrifice. It becomes explosive and the results are evident even in with our physical bodies. The last time I shared this story, it helped a teenager breakthrough and he got out of it. I used to bed wet when I was growing up. Read the rest of this entry

Fast & Pray

Ex.34:28 “Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments.” (NIV)

In today’s scripture reference we see what is called the Moses kind of fast. Moses did not eat food or drink water for forty days and forty nights. For this kind of fast, I would say except the Lord shows, up to you and tells you to do it, do not do it. 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

Create!

Gen.2:19-20 “So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals…”

Creativity [to create] can be defined as is the ability to merge the practical and the imaginary, a seamless merger between the intuitive and the pragmatic. You can be a thinking-doer or a doing-thinker, but you must be a doer and a thinker for you to be creative. Read the rest of this entry

Happy Are You

Proverbs 3:9-10 “Glorify God with all your wealth, honouring him with your firstfruits, with every increase that comes to you. Then every dimension of your life will overflow with blessings from an uncontainable source of inner joy!” (TPT)

We will kick off today’s devotional with our discourse from yesterday. Let’s look at the gentlemen from yesterday’s illustration. The gentleman with the nineteen thousand income that was able to save ninety-seven thousand over twelve months is a story about priorities. Read the rest of this entry

Know This

2 Chr. 7:14 “Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”

To have power with God and man, you have to Learn To Pray By Yourself Without Relying On Someone Else To Pray For You. You have to Pray To Your Heavenly Father And Not To Anyone Else. You have to Pray In The Name of Jesus. You have to Confess Your Sins. You have to Abide In Him & Let His Words Abide In You. You have to Please Him and you have to Be A Fruit Bearing Christian. You have to Have Faith Every Time You Pray and Be Persistent. Read the rest of this entry

Must Do’s

Psalm 69:13 “But I keep calling out to you, Yahweh! I know you will bend down to listen to me, for now is the season of favour. Because of your faithful love for me, your answer to my prayer will be my sure salvation.” (TPT)

To have power with God and man, you have to learn to pray yourself, pray to your Heavenly Father, not to anyone else, pray in the Name of Jesus, confess your sins and abide in Him and let His Words abide in you. Read the rest of this entry

All By Himself

Ex.15:11 “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (KJV).

1 Kings 18 [please read] is the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal. Elijah challenged them to a contest of gods on Mount Carmel. He said, ‘the God, that answers by fire let him be God’. So, the prophets of Baal set up their own altar and were doing their rituals to invoke their God. Read the rest of this entry
