Enormous Power? Within!

Hmmmm! Trying not to seem puffed up, quiet, sitting inconspicuously, reducing your shine to blend in, is not doing justice to all that has been made available to you. Well, yes you were able to accomplish some, even with your seemingly limited resources, you set the ball rolling, you changed the dynamics, yet, you could have done pretty much more!!!!!!

There is still many more land to conquer!! Joshua 14:10 “Now then, just as the Lord promised, he has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the wilderness. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! 11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. 12 Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as he said.”

13 Then Joshua blessed Caleb son of Jephunneh and gave him Hebron as his inheritance. 14 So Hebron has belonged to Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite ever since, because he followed the Lord, the God of Israel, wholeheartedly. 15 (Hebron used to be called Kiriath Arba after Arba, who was the greatest man among the Anakites.)

Then the land had rest from war.  

w-e-b-dubous

The Word said, if you are willing and obedient!! Willing to go all the way with the truth and obedient to the dictates of all that it entails, you will eat the fruit of the land – your labor of love, sacrifices, service and much more will be rewarded. You know who you are!  A compact power hibernating so to speak, waiting for that spark to ignite a dynamics!! Do not fear, but be courageous! The Lord is with you and His mighty hand is upon you, no other hand shall be upon you! Rise up and stand strong looking out for the salvation of the Lord!

Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom!

Broken To Be Useful!

beautifully broken

If you can use anything Lord you can use me

Take my hands Lord and my feet

Touch my heart Lord and speak through me

If you can use anything Lord, you can use me.

Lord you are the Potter and I am the clay

Mold me to your ways Lord

Take this life and transform it to the image of your dear Son Jesus Christ

That I may be an extension of love, kindness, forgiveness and mercy

In my home, family, work, congregation, community and generation

To your glory and majesty in Christ Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

Greatness Out Of Smallness!

Mark 8:17-21 Aware of the discussion among his disciples, Jesus asked them “Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to  hear? And don’t you remember?……”

Embrace Greatness!

Embrace Greatness!

Jesus was referring to how he gave thanks unto the Father and used five loaves of bread and two small fish to feed five thousand people, and seven loaves of bread and few small fish to feed four thousand people. On both occasion there were left over.

Jesus is the master multiplier. If you let him, allow him to partner with you, he will take that which seems insignificant in your hands and use it to do mighty things. He did it for the the widow of a Prophet when he turned a small jar of olive oil in the hand of a poor widow into an oil depot, an oil making plant, from lack and insufficiency into abundance. 2 Kings 4:1-7

Will you give what you have in your hands, your talent, gifts, time ….. all to Jesus today. Let him transform it – multiply, perfect it and use it for your benefit, humanity, Church and the glory of the Father in heaven.

Be a vessel of honor in Christ hands, a channel of blessing, a thirst quencher. Let Jesus use your sorrow in time past to bring hope and joy to those that are sorrowful. Let Christ use your pain to soothe and heal, to bring solace to many. Yield your boat to the master like Peter, become fishers of men.

Allow Jesus to take hold of your gifts and talent to bring terror to the kingdom of darkness and salvation to the lost.

Yield your life today – your all, make it count. Jesus is Lord.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
