Deuteronomy 4:20 “Remember that the Lord rescued you from the iron-smelting furnace of Egypt in order to make you his very own people and his special possession, which is what you are today.”
The implications of ingathering for you and me are; number one Harvest. Number two To Invoke God’s Blessings. Number three so that We Will Always Be Grateful. The significance is, the feast of ingathering is also known as the feast of booths, or the feast of the tabernacles. Read the rest of this entry
Ps. 148:5 “Let all things praise the name of the Lord, because we were created at his command.” (CEV, emphasis added).
God is good, that is why it is a delight to walk with Him. Even when you do not understand what He is doing, you know that all things work together for the good of those that love God and are called according to His purpose. Even though I do not understand it, Read the rest of this entry
Zech. 12:10 “And I pledge that I will pour out a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy on the family of David and the citizens of Jerusalem…” (Voice)
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Grace. When the Spirit of Grace is upon you, things become effortless. I acknowledge the Spirit of Grace upon my life and I am totally grateful for it. Sometimes, when I share the amazing things that God is doing or has done in my life, people are literally in shock. Read the rest of this entry
Josh.14:6 “…Caleb said to Joshua, “Remember what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me…” (emphasis added)
The challenge with a lot of us is that we do not remember things that God has said to us. We do a lot of writing but when it matters most, we do not remember. This is why a lot of people are worrying and fear has such a strong grip on many lives. It is because we do not remember. Read the rest of this entry
Isa.6:8 “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me” (KJV).
This scripture is very personal to me and pivotal to my relationship with Jesus. The crossroads affords us the opportunity of changing our direction or staying on course. Read the rest of this entry
Matt.26:39 “He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
Jesus was also tempted to take the way of self. The cross was hard; when He was at Gethsemane Jesus said, “Father, if it is possible let this cup pass over me.” Read the rest of this entry
“What’s more, I am changing your name. It will no longer be Abram. Instead, you will be called Abraham, for you will be the father of many nations” Gen.17:5
God’s instruction for us in this season is Re-Tune. To tune is to put into proper pitch. The purpose of tuning any instrument is to put it in proper pitch. To tune is also to adjust to a desired frequency. If you are tuning a radio, you are adjusting it to a desired frequency. To re-tune therefore means to put into proper pitch again. To re-tune means to readjust into a desired frequency.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he good! His faithful love endures for ever” Ps.136:1
It is only the living that can complain but guess what it is also only the living that can give thanks to God. Which would it be for you? Regardless of what you are going through, the fact that you are alive shows that God is not done with you yet and this is reason enough to give thanks. Many times we do not give the thanksgiving that is commensurate to our breakthrough, or even commensurate to our request for the breakthrough. We pray and wait on God for something Read the rest of this entry
“You have tested my thoughts and examined my heart in the night. You have scrutinized me and found nothing wrong. I am determined not to sin in what I say” Ps.17:3
A lot of people have live-in helps, which automatically means they enjoy the luxuries in those homes. If you live in a place where there is uninterrupted power and free water, the help enjoys all that too. He or she can eat whatever he wants to eat and is free to bath three or five times a day. But the day the help begins to forget his or her place in the home, that is the beginning of the end Read the rest of this entry
“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths” Ps.24:1-2
“As he looked out across the city, he said, ‘Look at this great city of Babylon! By my own mighty power, I have built this beautiful city as my royal residence to display my majestic splendor.’ “While these words were still in his mouth, a voice called down from heaven, ‘O King Nebuchadnezzar, this message is for you! You are no longer ruler of this kingdom. You will be driven from human society. You will live in the fields with the wild animals, and you will eat grass like a cow. Seven periods of time will pass while you live this way, until you learn that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world and gives them to anyone he chooses.” Dan.4:30-32 [emphasis added]. The church in Acts [please read Acts 2:42:47] knew that “…the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world and gives them to anyone he chooses” and that is why they did not grab onto their possessions. The truth is that the more you know this truth personally the more you know God. In fact, the more possessive you are, the less of God you know.
Nebuchadnezzar was intelligent and swift in decision-making. In fact, history has it that Nebuchadnezzar can talk to five people and tell them what they said in their private meeting before meeting with him. Not because he had divination but because he was so smart. But this same Nebuchadnezzar had the audacity to think; I got this “…by my own mighty power”. We tend to think that we are owners when God has repeatedly made it clear to us that we are managers. We tend to think that we are owners when God has consistently made it clear to us, He has not left us with any doubt that we do not own anything. “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him” Ps.24:1. “Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful…” Duet.8:18. The truth is that success is blinding but God is saying remember! Remember that God gave you that intelligence, remember God gave you that beauty, remember God gave you that power, and remember God gave you those finances. Remember God gave you everything and do not forget who owns it all. God has given us all things to freely enjoy but we must never forget that it all belongs to Him. That is why the Bible says it is better to go to a funeral house than a house of celebration [Ecc.7:2], because in a funeral house you are instructed that nobody takes anything away from this earth.
Prayer [song]: My heart, my mind, my soul belongs to You. My love, my life it all belongs to You. Belongs to you… The songs we sing they all belong to You. The air we breathe it all belongs to You… Belongs to you… Amen!
