Oftentimes when we are in the midst of a struggle or battle we can't immediately see or understand how God can fix the situation. What we forget is our God is the CREATOR that means he can do things that we can fathom let alone know how to pray for. This is why we must pray in faith believing in Gods ability to do and not our ability to understand. (Ephesians 3:20 AMP)Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]–
(Philippians 4:6-7 AMP)Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Lord I belong to you. All that I have it ever will be is in your hands, and in this I am grateful. As I see others fighting to establish a name for themselves I find peace in knowing that I belong to the name above every name. And you oh Lord have pre-ordered my steps.(Psalms 24:1 KJV) The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Remember today that God is your provider. Throughout your life Satan will tempt you to be your own source and He will try to get you to trust in your own abilities and the abilities of others. But you must remember God is your source for healing, provision, direction and Joy. So don't trust self or others to be your source TRUST GOD. So Take a deep breath. And pray this prayer. Lord God forgive me for putting my faith in myself, for I know it is you that enables me to do All Things. Lord I lay my needs before you and I take peace in knowing you love me and you have plans that are good for my life. So I choose to walk in faith in you, for You alone are God.
(Luke 4:2-4 KJV)

(Deuteronomy 8:3 KJV)

Jesus I need you. As believers we must remember that there is really a Redeemer of our Souls his name is Jesus. He welcomes in all those who put their trust in him (surrender their lives). This sounds simple but when a sinner does this he changes his citizenship and thus not only does He or she receive a new covering (heavenly Military) they Also receive Kingdom Benefits. Remember their is also a enemy of our souls and he desires us to live outside the Kingdom by listening to his commands and desires. He wants believers to renounce their citizenship by living by the rules of the Kingdom of this world. He does not mind us attending church and singing songs as long as we don't truly surrender to God. He Says to Us "Just Do You". Don't do you but instead let Gods Will Be Done In You.
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? (Romans 7:24 KJV)

When I think about what Jesus did for our spiritual freedom I just can't thank him enough. As I sit here at 3:50am knowing I have to preach tomorrow. I keep getting tears in my eyes thinking about the suffering he went through so we could be redeemed. There is nothing that gets me excited like Jesus. Not the final 4, the super Bowl nor the NBA finals. In each of those games someone has to loose (ask UK) but in Jesus wining and loosing is a choice and it is not based on our abilities but it is based or our accepting what has already been done. No amount of money in the World can get me to compromise my love for Jesus. It would be great to have great wealth but much better to have blessed assurance. I would hate to prosper on earth and be bankrupt for eternity. The Gospel message is not houses and land (these things within themselves are not bad unless they become our idol "focus") the Gospel message is about eternal life with Christ. Time to get back to the Salvation message. People will talk about you if you live holy but don't sweat it they talked about Noah up until the time he set sail and they drowned "Oh Well". Time to spread the Gospel of Jesus and stop promoting the Gospel of self. We would not die to self or die for anyone else but Jesus the Christ Died for us so let's start living for him. Much love.

We love to read and even quote the scriptures when we encounter someone that needs an emotional lift. But what happens when we are faced with life's circumstances that cause us to have to walk out the Word for ourselves? I have seen some of the most on fire Christian revert back to thinking and doing things they did before they got saved because they let fear come in where faith should be standing. If we live long enough we will face difficulties but we must always keep in mind that there is nothing to Hard for our God. Death does not even have dominion over a believer because Jesus took away the sting of death. It's time to live and enjoy life no matter what we are going through. Each day is a gift and eternity is a promise. Have a blessed day
Scripture to meditate on
(Genesis 18:14 KJV)Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
