Be Patient – God has His Timing!

I was talking with a friend on yesterday and he was telling me how hopeless that he felt and how he was feeling so down and distressed.  He felt that his situation was so “terrible” that God would not change it, because he has been in it for so long.

He was in such despair that it brought tears to my eyes and sadness to my soul.  Even though trials are bombarding me from every side, I began to minister to him and let him know that “God” has not left him nor forsaken him.

You see, it is a trick and scheme of the enemy for us to have so much focus on the “bad things” that comes into our lives, that we can forget just how quickly and how suddenly that god can rescue us from our situations without us even knowing when and how he’s going to do it.

It may seem like eternity during times of testing, because we lack patience and we never want to go through anything.  But like Job, we must be patient and wait on God to change our situation.  God knows just how much of the trial that we can endure and He will change our situation and bring us out in His perfect timing.  A timing that will benefit us more than we know!

We should just trust Him and never, ever, doubt the power of God, neither should we doubt who He is.

Some of you, right this very minute, the enemy is talking to you and saying to you in your mind that God does not hear you, nor does He care about you.  But these are only lies and deception from the pits of hell!

You need to know that God does love and care for you and He is in this situation with you.  And you need to trust that God has His hands on you and He knows just where you are.

When he is done shaping and molding you into His vessel, He will deliver you from your trials.  When he does, you will look nothing like the heartaches and pain that you have gone through!

God knows what is best for you, so don’t get impatient, because God will deliver you and bring you out at the right time!

“In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help.  From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears”   Psalm 18:6.

“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles”   Psalm 34:17.

“Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress”   Psalm 107:6.

“Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything”   James 1:4.


Prayer Against Suicide and Destruction

We need Prayer back in our schools!

There has been another school shooting.  Let us send up prayers for our children, schools, communities, and youth. The devil is out to kill, steal, and to destroy through suicide and destruction.

Lord we bind up and pray against these spirits that plague our youth.  We bind bullying, suicide, murder, alcohol, drugs, peer pressure and all demonic forces that come to destroy our children and youth.

Lord we pray your protection over them each day as they go to and from the schools and every place they go and travel.

Lord we ask that you would cover and reverse every curse that is sent to destroy their lives and steal their souls.

Whatever we bind on earth, The Lord will bind in heaven! In the mighty name of Christ Jesus!  We decree that it is so!


Don’t Despise Small Beginnings!

No, don’t despise the day of small beginnings.

When we praise God for what we consider small things, we open doors for God to bless us with much more.

Remember, even a large tree starts with a small seed.  So be thankful for what you have and where you are at the moment, even if it doesn’t seem to be much.  When we are faithful and thankful over the little things, God can and will entrust us with much more of His glory and riches!

“For who has despised the day of small things?”   Zechariah 4:9.

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!  You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.  Come and share your master’s happiness!”   Matthew 23:25.


Haters don’t Change God’s Plan

Just like Joseph’s brothers tried to stop him, when God has planned greatness for your life, it doesn’t matter who or what gets in the way to try and stop you.  Just because you have haters hanging around trying to block your path, doesn’t mean a thing!

God is just using them to get you to your greatness!

So, go ahead and let them hate, lie, plot and betray you, because when God’s favor is upon you, nothing or nobody will stop God’s plan for you.

All you have to do is walk it out and you can believe that if God promised it and said it, then you can get ready to invite all the haters to the celebration!

“When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him.  One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever”   Genesis 37:4-5.

“Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph’s finger.  He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.  He was thirty years old when he began serving in the court of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt.  And when Joseph left Pharaoh’s presence, he inspected the entire land of Egypt”   Genesis 41:42; 46.


The Difference between Natural and Spiritual Snakes

What’s the difference you ask?

Natural snakes will at least go and hibernate or lie dormant in the cold seasons.

But spiritual snakes never take a break.  They are always hissing and slithering around.

They will lurk and strike in every season during the year.  So Beware!
