Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Manifestation of the Kingdom

Last week I was away at the ICLC Apostolic & Prophetic International Leaders Conference in Guyana, South America.
The theme for the conference was " Manifestation of the Kingdom ". and God's presence was truly manifested in our midst.
I saw God show up in power every day of the conference, I was truly blessed

Matthew 6:33 says " But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you ".

Indeed this is the time when people need to be about the Kings' business, but by the Kings' standards, holy and righteous.
We need to be repentant, totally surrendered and obedient

For too long believers have been playing church. If the Kingdom of God is to be manifested the King has to be involved.
Often times we have done a lot of great stuff for God but He was left out of the equation.

So the question is what are we seeking, is it the King's business?
We as believers need to get to the place where the kingdom is our priority when it becomes our priority then the other things will be added unto us.

Reason - Season - Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away!
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.




Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.




LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson,
love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.



Thank you for being a part of my life,
whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

A Love Letter From Jesus

How are you ? I just had to send this letter to tell you how much I love you and care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I waited all day ,hoping you would walk and talk with me also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you. Then I waited, but you never came. O yes it hurt me but I still love you because I am your friend.

I saw you fall asleep last night and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face...
Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you.

You awakened late this morning and rushed off for the day.My tears were in the rain. Today you looked so sad, so alone. It makes my heart ache because I understand. My friends let me down and hurt me many times, but I love you. I try to tell you in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in the leaves and trees and breathe it in the color of the flowers. I shout it to you in the mountain streams and give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air. My love for you is deeper than the oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need you could ever have.

We will spend eternity together, I know how hard it is now on earth. I really know because I was there and I want to help you. My father wants to help you too. He's that way you know.
Just call me, ask me, talk to me.It is your decision...
I have chosen you and because of this I will wait...
Because I love you.


Your friend,
Jesus

Push your way through - Your victory is sure

"
And a certain woman which had an issue of blood twelve years..."



Mark 5:25-34

Here is a woman with an issue of blood having suffered for twelve long years and growing worse despite the many physicians she saw. She had spent all her money and was now broke in the process she had not one dime left .She was in a desperate situation but she heard about the blind man healer, the leper cleansing man from Galilee, He was in town and she needed to get to Him. For she said if I could touch the hem of his garment I would be made whole.

The crowd was great many went out of curiosity but this woman was on a mission, she was tired, weak, burden down but she had faith to reach out, she believed.
So this frail woman pushed her way through the crowd until she got close enough to touch Jesus' clothes and instantly the issue of blood dried up

Likewise you may be having many issues in your life, financial,emotional spiritual ,physical and mental but whatever your issues you have to push your way through to get your miracle.
Keep believing, keep pushing don't give up your victory is sure..


Do like the songwriter says:

Sometimes you feel you cannot make it,
Things all around you are falling to pieces
Child God understands what you're going through
So don't give up just keep on trusting,
Things will get better keep praying and fasting
No, don't you give up victory's ahead


My God will open up the door
Don't be afraid just walk right through
Keep holding on victory is sure
Don't you give up, victory is sure.

If you only believe these few words I say
That God is always near and He's never too late
Just call on His name and He'll answer your prayer
Just declare your statement of faith

My God will open up the door
Don't be afraid just walk right through
Keep holding on victory is sure
Don't you give up,your victory is sure.

The Faith Line

"And being not weak in faith, [Abraham] considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God."





A faith line is what you need when you want God to do the "impossible" in your life. It's what you need when you want to be firm in your faith and yet you keep wavering back and forth between your circumstances and God's promises--believing first one, then the other.

It's what can make you like faithful Abraham. You know, Abraham had natural facts to deal with just like we do. He knew there was no natural way for God's promise to him to come true.

Yet the Word says Abraham considered not his own body. In other words, Abraham ignored the natural evidence around him and believed only God's promise.

Somewhere he stepped across the line of faith.

He made an irreversible decision to go with the Word of God. He made a final commitment. He chose to step past the point of no return. And if you and I are ever going to see God do the impossible in our lives, we're going to have to do the same thing!

How do you draw that faith line?

Begin with the Word. Search the promises of God and purposely believe what He has said, and is saying, about your need. Meditate on those promises until faith rises in your heart.

Then draw the line of faith. Draw it in your mind and heart. I am stepping across the line of faith. From this moment on, I consider this matter done. From this day forward, I give God the praise and the glory in the Name of Jesus.

From that moment on, speak only as if your miracle has already happened. Turn your back on the problems, on the doubts, and turn your face toward Jesus.

God will do the impossible in your life. Dare to step across the faith line!

Blessings

Lift up your heart and rejoice in what I have prepared for you my child. Because I desire only blessing for you. In fact I desire to bless you even more than you are seeking blessings.
It delights my heart to give you the things that you desire. But it delights me even more when you come into my presence, not to obtain anything, but just to be with me. It delights my heart when I am more important to you than the things of this world.

And when you come to me in this way, I long to show you my love in return. And then I will ask you what you want. Then you can ask freely and I will give you the desires of your heart.

Expect blessing this day, for that is what I have planned for you.

Nineteen Books

Someone showed me this story and remarked that there are nineteen books of the bible hidden here. She challenged me to find them. Sure enough, they're here.
Still these things a"lu lu" kept me looking so hard for the longest time ! Some of you will get bogged down with facts. Others are hit by them like they were some kind of revelation or something. You may get in a jam especially since the names are not capitalized and often leap the spaces between the words. This makes it a real job to find them. But it'll provide a most fascinating few minutes for you.
Yes, there are some really easy one to spot, but don't get the big head, cause truthfully, you'll soon figure that it would take most federal judges and preachers numbers of hours to find them all. I will admit that it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and that is not uncommon for there are to be loud lamentations when it is pointed out. One lady says that when she is confronted with puzzles like this, she brews a cup of tea to help her concentrate better. But then, this gal's a real pro. Verbs, nouns and all that stuff are her thing. see how well you can compete. Relax. There really are nineteen names of Bible Books in this story. If you fail to find them, there's a penalty. You'll have to go fly a kite, sit on a banana, hum the Battle Hymn of the Republic, or hose a dog (a mean one).

Chosen to be Different

You are chosen to be different

You are God's anointed
You are called; set apart and anointed by God
He has given you dominion, power and authority over every demon and devil of hell.
It is God's desire that you be blessed, that you prosper and be victorious.

Therefore I declare this day:
You are walking in God's prosperity and His blessings.
Everything that god has determined for you today will happen for you as He has determined it.
Every door that He has opened for you today you are walking through as He has determined it
You are healthy and well physically and spiritually as He has determined it.

And no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper.
Every door closed against you shall be opened
I send back every negative word that has been spoken against you and I command every element of the curse to be removed, it will not prosper according to the word.
Every assignment of hell assigned against you today I reverse ,canceled and destroyed.
For you are the anointed one of God who will not be held back because you are walking in the destiny and purpose of God.

Dying To Self

When you are purposely forgotten or neglected and you don't sting with hurt to the insults or the oversight, but your heart is happy, being counted worthy to suffer for Christ - that is dying to self.

When your good is evil spoken of, when your wishes are crossed, your advice disregarded, your opinions ridiculed and you refuse to let anger rise in your heart or even defend yourself but take it all in patient loving silence - that is dying to self.

When you lovingly and patiently bear any disorder, any irregularity, any impunctuality or any annoyance, when you can stand face to face with waste , folly ,extravagance,spiritual insensibility and endure it as Jesus endured it - that is dying to self.

When you are content with any food, any offering,any clothing, any climate, any solitude, any interrupyion by the will of God - that is dying to self.

When you never care to refer to yourself in conversation or to record your own good works, or to itch after commendations, when you can truly love to be unknown - that is dying to self.

When you can receive correction and reproof from one of less stature than yourself and can humbly submit inwardly as well as outwardly, finding no rebellion or resentment rising up within your heart - that is dying to yourself.

When you can see your brother prosper and have his needs met and can honestly rejoice with him in spirit and feel no envy nor question God, while your needs are far greater and in desperate circmstances - that is dying to self.

ARE YOU DEAD YET?????

Do we really depend on God?

I heard my Father say:
Do not be anxious about anything
I love you with an everlasting love
I am for yuo ,who can be against you.
You please me by having faith.
Your times are in my hands.
I know you and I'm familiar with all your ways.
My thoughts towards you are precious.
They outnumber the grains of sand
Nothing will separate you from my love
Your times are in my hands.
I will teach you and instruct you
I will guide you with my eye.
Nothing that is good will be withheld from you.
I will bless you and make you a blesssing
I am your provider.
I will give you good gifts.
I discipline you not to harm you but to free you from every enemy of righteousness, peace and joy.
I call you by name, I have placed my hand on you, I hold you with my hand.
With me all things are possible.
You are my child

Something Greater

Some may have more possessions, but no one can have greater riches than those you have in Christ.

Some may partake of more pleasures, but no one can know a deeper joy than the one you share in His presence.

Some may be able to sing with a stronger voice, but no one can have a sweeter song than the melody of His love filling your heart.

Some may have greater popularity, but no one can know a truer friendship than the one you already have by walking with Him.

Some may have attained a higher status but no one can have a higher calling than the one you have in serving the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Some may live in a big house, but no one can have a nicer home than the one that Jesus has been preparing for you in Heaven.

Jesus Can Touch Any Dead Situation

"..... and he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise." Luke 7:14



The widow's son was dead and she had already lost her husband, her situation was very bleak, but she was just the kind of peron Jesus came to help.

Jesus can touch any dead situation, He can even raise the dead.Your problems seem so bad, its beyond repair.Jesus raised Jairus daughter, He raised Lazarus and He can raise you too.
He can raise you out of any dead situation whether it be sickness, finances, relationships.
When Jesus had heard Lazarus was sick He delayed going so that God could be glorified.God sometimes have to allow your situations to stink inorder to deliver you.
When you you are dead , the flesh is no longer in control, you die to self.You come to the place where you can do nothing to help yourself and God takes over.

God understands what you are going through, He is concerned about you.
You might have just found out you have cancer or alzheimers or some form of sickness or disease or you have be given two months to live but God can remove every death sentence over you.Your sickness is not unto death
So don't give up, just keep on trusting its your season of resurrection ,its a new day , its a new season .
Live

Turn Things around

"But God's free gift is not at all to be compared to the trespass...For if many died through one man's falling away--his lapse, his offense--much more profusely did God's grace and the free gift [that comes] through...Jesus Christ, abound and overflow to and for [the benefit of] many."
(Romans 5:15)


If you ever need someone to tell you how to turn things around, go to God. He's an expert on the subject. He's suffered more losses than anyone who's ever lived.

Just think about it. He lost Lucifer, His top-ranked, most anointed angel. And He lost at least a third of His other angels as well when Lucifer fell. Then He lost the man and woman He had created; and because He'd given them dominion over the earth, when He lost them, He lost it too. Any way you figure it, that's a lot of real estate down the drain!

Yet, in spite of all that, God is no loser. He's the greatest winner of all time. Do you know why? Because He knows how to turn the losses around. He knows how to use the law of giving and receiving to transform losses into gains.

"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over" (Luke 6:38).

Isn't that staggering? He had every option that exists to choose from to redeem the things He'd lost. He had all wisdom and all power available to Him. Out of all that, the law of giving is what He chose to use.

He gave the most irreplaceable thing He had: His only Son. Then He backed that gift with His own faith. And when the law of giving and receiving had done its work, the Almighty Father God received not only His first begotten Son, but millions of other sons as well.

Don't despair over your losses. Redeem them the same way God redeemed His. Give and put the most powerful principle in the universe to work for you

God is Merciful

"This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion's fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness."
(Lamentations 3:21-23)



God is faithful. He's full of compassion. His mercies are new every morning.

For it to do you any good, you have to recall it. You have to remember it again and again in order to stir your faith and hope.

So, make it a point to remind yourself of God's faithfulness every morning. Remind yourself of the benefits that are yours in Jesus.

Psalm 103 spells them out:

1. He forgives all your sins.
2.He heals all your diseases.
3. He redeems your life from destruction.
4. He crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.
5. He satisfies your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6. He executes righteousness and judgment for you against oppression. He sets you free.
7. He makes known His ways to you.
8. He gives you His grace and mercy in times of need.

Make it a point every morning to say those things out loud to the Lord and you'll be stronger in faith and more confident of God's love than you've ever been before.

Don't just settle for knowing God's blessings read them and meditate on them every day and see the changes they bring in you.

You Are Valuable

You are not alone. I am with you. I said that I would always be with you, and I always keep my promises. And though many might forsake you or reject you, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Lift up your eyes and stop looking at your situation. Stop looking at people, for they will always let you down.

You are very special to me. I gave my life for you, because you are valuable. I bought you for a very high price, because I considered you worth it. So what does it matter what man thinks? What does it matter what the world thinks? You are precious to me, and I will not allow you to come to harm. Just trust me completely. Do you not look after the things you own that are valuable? Do you neglect something that cost you a high price?

Then know that I will not neglect you. When a merchant finds something of real value, he displays it to the world. He is proud of it. Even so I will never be ashamed of you. But I will boldly display you to the world. For you are of great value to me.
Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
We would like to pray for you, please leave your request below.
