Speak it!

Every believer has been given a measure of faith. In order to see the promises of God come to pass in your life, you have to give expression to that faith through the words that you speak. That’s why the Scripture tells us, “Let the weak say, ‘I am strong’”—not the opposite, “I am so tired. I am so rundown.” That’s calling in the wrong things. Let the poor say, “I am well off”—not, “I am so in debt.” When you give your faith a voice, when you start speaking the promises of God, the Bible says that He watches over His Word to bring it to pass in your life. The key is that we can’t allow words of defeat or negativity to come out of our mouths. Don’t dig up your seed by speaking against His Word. Instead, water your seed by continuing to declare the Word of God. As you give your faith a voice, you will see God’s promises come to pass.

A Prayer for Today

“Father in heaven, I humbly come before You giving You my thoughts, my actions and my words. Help me to activate my faith by speaking Your Word daily. May my words and thoughts be pleasing to You always in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Ready for change

Change is good. Change is necessary.

Are you ready for change? Have you been thinking about a new thing in your life? Have you thought about a new idea? The key to change is letting go of all fear. 

Fear could keep you from flying. IMG_0550

I challenge you to start that business plan, plan that trip, move to that new location.

So many times we say “I’m waiting on God”… but God could be waiting on us. I pray that your faith is increased in this season. Without faith, it’s impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6)

It’s time to increase your faith and make a move! God has your back!! We have about 6 weeks of this year left, lets go out with a bang!

Love you guys!! Stay focused! The time is Now!

Keep your eyes on the prize.

*We only get ONE life to live. Make sure you are living your life to the fullest.

Unfamiliar places

“It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going” Hebrews 11:8, NLT.

There are times when I tell God, “I’ve never been here before. I’ve never experienced this before.” Both great and terrible experiences that are new to me, and I have to trust God like never before.

In the unfamiliar places is when we hear God say, “I’ve got you!”

“I’ve got you.”

“I’ve got you.”

Where you are today may be new to you, but it’s not new to God. He’s not experiencing this for the first time. He’s all knowing and He’s already made a way, and carved out a path for you. My sister, rest in knowing He is with you and you have nothing to fear. Receive His grace to walk in the unfamiliar places and move into the unknown. You will arrive at His expected end for your life.

Prayer: Father God, thank you that you are with me when I’m in a place that’s unfamiliar. You are with me to help me and guide me. I need your grace and I need your strength to keep moving into the unknown. Hold my hand and lead me by your Spirit. Quiet me with your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Zephaniah 3:17)

Restoration!

“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.” Joel 2:25

God is a restorer. He specializes in restoring to His people all that rightfully belongs to them. Many of you lost time, lost your money, lost your health, lost great opportunities and even lost yourself, but God is faithful and He is restoring everything back to you multiplied. You may know Him to be your Provider, your Peace and your Protection, but God is getting ready to show you another side of His divine nature you may have never seen before–God your Restorer!

Say out loud from your heart, “God is my Restorer! Everything the devil stole from me, God is restoring it all back to me multiplied! I’m not going to try to figure out how or when He is going to bring restoration in my life. I’m just going to trust that He will in His perfect timing and in His perfect way because He is faithful to His promises and He is faithful to me! He will surely restore! In Jesus’ name!”

(Read Psalms 51:12; Jeremiah 30:17; Psalms 23:3)

Cast your cares…

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

(Matthew 11:28, NIV)

Release Your Care and Rest

God wants to give you rest. He wants to refresh and restore your soul—your mind, will and emotions. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “busyness” of life, and before long, your mind, will and emotions are so “spun up” that you can barely think straight! But even in the hustle of life, you can find rest, ease and relaxation. God wants to take care of everything that concerns you so that you can find rest in your innermost being when you come to Him.

Imagine how you would feel if someone came up to you today and said, “Give me all of your monthly bills; I’m going to pay them.” You’d get pretty excited, wouldn’t you? But it wouldn’t happen until you did your part to actually hand that person your bills. They can’t pay them for you if you never release them. In the same way, when we release our cares and concerns to God, He promises to take care of them.

Today, release your cares to the Lord. Let Him fill you with His peace and joy. Receive the rest that He promises and enjoy the fulfillment and blessing He has for you!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, today I humbly come to You. I choose to cast my cares on You so that I can live in Your rest. Thank You for Your goodness to me. Help me find ways to share Your goodness with those around me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

It starts in the mind…

Prayer: Father God, forgive me for all of the negative thinking I have allowed in my life. You gave me the mind of Christ. You gave me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. I receive by faith the sound mind you have already given me through Jesus and I cast down every vain imagination and take every thought captive. LORD, teach me how to stay sober in my mind when I’m at work, when I’m alone in my car, when I’m at home, when I’m with my husband, when I’m at church, and when I’m around my family. Help me to think on the right things. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 Peter 4:7-8)

Joy comes in the morning

Today’s Scripture

“…Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”

(Psalm 30:5, NLT)

Joy Comes in the Morning

When you wake up each morning, God sends you a special delivery of joy. It comes knocking at your door. When you get up in faith and make the declaration that “this is going to be a good day,” do you know what you just did? You just answered the door. You just received the gift of joy that God sent to you. The problem is that some people never answer the door. Joy has been knocking for months and months, years and years saying, “Come on! Let me in! You can be happy! You can enjoy your life!”

Make up your mind that you’re going to answer the door for joy. Wake up every morning and say, “Father, thank You for another beautiful day. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to enjoy this day. I’m going to brighten somebody else’s life. I receive Your gift of joy, today!”

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for joy. Thank You for peace. Thank You for walking me through the difficult times. I choose today to answer the door for joy every single morning so that I can walk in the strength You have given to me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Pressing forward!

Your Future isn’t Defined by Your Past

I heard somebody say, “Don’t let your heredity stop your destiny.” In other words, don’t let the way somebody treated you, or what they did or didn’t give you keep you from pressing forward and becoming all that God has created you to be.

The people who raised you may have had addictions, but that doesn’t have to be your future. You can be the one to break that negative cycle. Your parents may have had anger issues or never amounted to much, but you don’t have to keep letting that curse be passed from generation to generation. You can be the one to say, “No more. This is a new day! I may have had an unfair past, but I’m not going to have an unfair future. I know God put a blessing on me before anybody could put a curse, and I’m not going to let my heredity stop my destiny.”

Today, know that God is for you! Seek Him with a humble heart and break free from the bondages of the past. When you choose to put Him first in your life, then nothing can stop your destiny!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for empowering me by Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for giving me new life. I choose to let go of the past. I won’t let it define me, but I will let Your truth define me and lead me into victory in Jesus’ name! Amen.”
