All In The Plan! Destiny Calls!

You know your life, destiny, and breakthrough depends on you following your passion – fulfilling the purpose for which you are created, serving God in spirit and in truth through the people in and around your life. You know the seed of greatness is planted within you, a burning coal, feisty roll of thunder looking for expression more and more. Zeal for the things of the kingdom burns in your soul. You know that you are in the will of God, you know that God is for you, well how come all hell seems to be let loose at every turn?

How come you face obstacles at every turn? Why are the very purpose for which you exist, your message, the recipients, the channel, and circumstances seem to be at loggerheads? Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Very often, you will look inward first if you are like most to examine yourself. You will look at You as a person! Who are you in your core? What do you believe you stand for? Why are you the way you are? What makes you tick? You will examine every aspect of your being. This process will bring so much revelation, your flaws, strengths, weakness, errors and so much more will be brought to your consciousness, and if you are like many that are true to themselves, you most likely will feel inadequate. Please do not dwell there!

If you dwell there, you will be giving a foothold for doubt of what has been written about you and the power of the Holy Spirit who is going to accomplish them in you.  The enemy of your soul will magnify your flaws and inadequacies to discredit what the Lord intend and has purposed to do in and through you.

Remember that God’s intention and will for you is not because of You, this isn’t about you, but all about what God is able to do in, with and for you. It is for His great name! Ezekiel 36:2222 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone.  Quit beating yourself and embrace the unconditional love of God. Do not take this love for granted though! Lean on Christ the Rock in prompt obedience. Stop been afraid! Look unto Jesus!

Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

You are fulfilling purpose even now more than you know.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Who Am I? Who?

Thank you Lord for waking me up this morning I said to the Lord as the day started. Something is missing though, I thought to myself. Where is that bubbling joy that comes at the breaking of day? Why are you cast down Oh my soul? Hope thou in the Lord and He shall sustain thee.

I kept wondering and worrying about my state of mind and this song came up. It hugged me like the warm embrace of strong hands. I am His, I am the Lords! He has never been far from me, though in my thoughts, I have kept Him at arms length, yet the Lord stayed close for that moment that I will need His hands to hold me up, like this moment!

“Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth would care to know my name, would care to feel my hurt? Who am I, that the bright morning star would choose to light the way for my ever wandering heart?

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin would look on me with love and watch me rise again? Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea would call out through the rain and calm the storm in me?

Not because of who I am, but because of what you’ve done, not because of what I’ve done, but because of who you are!” Who Am I – Casting Crown Lyrics

Thank you Lord for always been there for me. When all else fails, you remain constant, unchanging and loving me through it all!

Love you Lord Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Even Faith!!!!!

Oh that my faith will grow that I may have wings to fly! Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is an absolute for every believer to reach their highest potential, receive from the Lord and fulfill God given destiny.

hebrew-11In Matthew 8:2A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy”. Jesus is willing and able to make us clean. He wants so much to beautify everyone of His brethren. The question then is, are you willing to be clean? The man with Leprosy desired to be make clean and asked for it! Are you desirous of been made whole? Ask Jesus for it!

Simple faith in the capability of The Word to reach and transform our lives is paramount to receiving from the Lord. The Centurion man exhibited great faith by believing that just the word spoken by Christ is able to reach his sick servant at home – Matthew 8:8. What then is that situation that has been, and not palatable in our lives? Have faith today in The Word, speak the Word in Jesus name and the situation must change. Be unwavering in your faith, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Believe that all things are possible with Jesus Christ in your camp. The Word works my friends, it works wonders every time applied with faith in line with the will of God. Jesus drove out the evil spirits with a word and healed all the sick. He will do same for you today. Call upon Jesus!

One other thing you must realize friends is that Jesus Christ, God made flesh went through storms. He got into a boat and a furious storm came up on the lake, presumably to swallow up destiny – Matthew 8:24. Jesus experienced storm, how much more you and I friends, be assured though that no storm can overcome us as long as we have Jesus in our boat.

Do you have Jesus in your boat? Are you born again? Have you invited and accepted Christ into your heart? Do you trust Jesus with your life, the life He gave you? Your faith and trust in Christ will enable you to ride through every and any storm triumphantly. There is power in the Word of God!!!!! Jesus spoke to the wind and waves and it was completely calm. He will speak to your and my situation today! Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Resolute Faith!

 

Faith in God! Faith in The Word! Had it not been this tiny weeny faith that I have, that you have by His grace. I, we most likely would have forgotten who I/we was/were, who I am/you are, and who His love is making me and you to become from glory to glory. Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Hebrew 11 Faith: By Faith We Understand! Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”;  for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; 10 for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Like Joseph, who shared his dream with his brothers and was hated. His Father, with all the love and lofty plans He had for all his children could not imagine that this little child will one day be mightier than Him he must have thought. Bow before Joseph? That can’t be, it is unheard off. Genesis 37:1 to end. Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”10 So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” 11 And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matter in mind.

You my friends might have shared your dreams with family and friends. No one would dare to share their dreams with known foes! None would dare to do that. We most often share our lives with people of like minds, family, friends, and those of the household of faith. Please note that dream killers abide everywhere and will not hesitate to call day night and night day. The wicked one will use every available vessel vacant and willing to discourage, distract and convince you to discard your dreams and from being your transformed self. You will be stripped, sold out by “trusted” allies, blackmailed and wrongfully convicted and sentenced in order to kill that dream, your great destiny, planted by heaven in your heart.

Folks remember how things played out? It always plays out that way when it is backed by heaven. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Life matters will work hand in hand with your ordained destiny only by total faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It does not matter how long it takes or seems to be taking, trust the process and the path like Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Peter and many more! Lean not on the arm of flesh for it always fails. Let your faith be aligned with Christ Jesus alone!  Many have leaned on “Pillars”, looked up to like minded people of faith and have been shipwrecked. Look up to Jesus Christ the author and finisher of your faith. Be encouraged friends, the Lord is on your case! Relax!!!!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Without weakening in his faith, Father Abraham faced the fact that his body was as good as dead- since he was about a hundred years old – and Mother Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God and being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:19:21

Friends, hope against hope, believing that every word written in the scripture that you have received into your spirit is a promise from God and it will be fulfilled if you believe. Trust God!

Shalom! Shalom!
