Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:6-8

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 2 Corinthians 2:10

 

Well, we’re already 2 months into a brand new year that our God has so graciously allotted to us! Chances are, many of us have already dropped our bucket-list (resolutions) for this year, huh? While others, perhaps, are just so glad that we made it over, we welcome everything that the future can throw at us with open arms with a heart’s decree that ‘anything that happens gotta be better than where I’ve been! #HaveIgottawitness?

Nevertheless, I do realize that the self-righteous religious tribe, are still pumped, ready,  determined to build upon last year’s successes and primed for the next dimension of your personal aspirations and spiritual elevation! Howevvrrrr, for the rest of us, who truly love God with all of our hearts, spirit, soul, mind and body, must confess that beneath the surface of our confident exterior, somewhere deep within the pit of our subconscious consciusness, there remains an intrinsic urging to apologize to our Loving Lord, each and every day! Unquestionably, at some point between the time you roll out  and the time you crawl back into bed, you have inevitably fallen short of living up to God’s Righteous expectations! Fortunately, there’s yet hope for all of us! 

The certainty of Life’s uncertainties has trained us that the only acceptable way to embark upon each new beginning is with extreme gratitude, absolute humility and purity of hearts void of any resentment because God’s purposes did not live up to our best laid-out plans!  SERIOUSLY?

I know this seems a bit too ‘unconventional, irrelevant and marred by unsound ol’skool theological’ to the 21st Century 7-11 spin off  New Millennium Church, nevertheless, may I submit for your consideration, given the fact that HE is our Creator, God is perfectly justified in establishing specific standards of behavior for us to live by! Hence, it  stands to reason that because He has consistently shown such unfathomable loving-kindness, tender-mercy and unmerited favor towards us, that the only reasonable response should be radical thanksgiving and faithful obedience!  #ijs

Yet, try as we may, left to our own efforts, we’re totally incapable of reaching this level of holy worship that God so richly deserves. I mean, even those random days where we actually do some righteous things, will never equal out all our unrighteous thoughts, words and deeds!  Therefore, it’s pure folly to dare gloat on our egotistical star. Right? BUT THANKS BE TO GOD, there’s yet Hope for our terminal dis-ease!

Honestly, my precious ones, what God really expects from each one of us, is failure! And from sixty something years of personal experience, I can testify, with absolute confidence, that we can surely do! Royally! Can I get a  genuine Hallelujah and Amen 3x?

Trust2know, it’s only when we come to the end of self and acknowledge our weaknesses that God is truly glorified! 

For without Him, we can do absolutely nothing, however through Christ’s strength, we can do all things.(Ref. Matthew 19:26, Philippians 4:13) As long as we think we’re capable of doing anything on our own, we deceive ourselves and deny God the pleasure of delivering us from any and everything that is trying to hold us captive. That’s why The Bible encourages the weak to say I am strong. (Ref. Joel 3:10) THAT’S GRACE, YALL!

Therefore, it is with holy boldness and unspeakable joy-filled-anticipation, we humbly confess that the only thing standing between our strength and weakness, righteousness and wickedness, success and failure, is JESUS!

#PRAIZBREAK! GLORRAAAA 2 GOD! There is no failure in GOD!  YESSSSS MY LORD! Christ IN us, The Hope of Glory, guarantees our victory every single time! (Ref. Colossians 1:27)

WOW! WHO KNU FULFILLING GOD’S  EXPECTATIONS WAS THAT EASY! Christ IN us, The Hope of Glory, GUARANTEES VICTORY EVERY SINGLE TIME! #LET’S DO THIS!!!

SELAH!

Jesus replied,“The time is coming, ma’am, when we will no longer be concerned about whether to worship the Father here or in Jerusalem. For it’s not where we worship that counts, but how we worship—is our worship spiritual and real? Do we have the Holy Spirit’s help? For God is Spirit, and we must have his help to worship as we should. The Father wants this kind of worship from us. But you Samaritans know so little about him, worshiping blindly, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes to the world through the Jews.” John 4:21-24 TLB

 

Unless you were born late last night or just landed on planet earth early this morning, you gotta recognize that this whole world has gone crazy! I don’t care who you are, where you live, how many tongues you speak in, you’ve gotta admit that stuff is going down around us today that Mama and Daddy ‘nem never could’ve imagined. We’re living in desperate times, huh?

You don’t have to be a bible scholar or seminary theologian, or even have the Holy Ghost to be able to discern the signs of the times. We are living in the last of the last days. And Jesus is soon to come. Amen 3x? #DON’T SHOUT ME DOWN!

Let me assure you, it matters not whether you’re young or old, everybody needs to know Jesus for themselves. It’s getting darker out here, and there’s no guarantee that you got all that time you think you have to get yourself together. But while you have today, we need to stop blaming or comparing ourselves with everybody else and figure out how to work out our own soul salvation! None of us should allow what nobody else is doing to distract us and make us miss Jesus, huh?

It doesn’t matter who’s in the White House, Senate, Congress, Court House, Jail House, Out House or who falls off the financial cliff, YOU need to be very sure that this world is not your Source of provision, comfort, joy and certainly not your peace! Them ol’ skool Mothers sanng, “My Hope is built on nothing less, but Jesus Blood and His Righteousness, I dare not trust the sweet frame, but wholly lean on JESUS NAME”!

Beloved, time is spirialing into eternity at the speed of LIFE! Hence, recess is over and time’s out for fakin’ it till you make it! We no longer have the luxury of procrastinating! You’ve gotta get off the proverbial fence and make a decision. Either you’re going to walk by faith or allow the cares of this lost and dying world to slamm, trample and sift your joy, strength and hope for better days to come. If the only hope you have is in this world, you’re destined to live a most miserable life!

Saints, God has a better plan for His children. “I come that you might have life and that more abundantly” (Ref. John 10:10) Yet,  contrary to New Age Gospel-Lite doctine, God’s Promises are conditional! As the CEO of your destiny, The Word of God must take priority over everything! Therefore, it’s not enough to hear the Word, you must believe it to the point that you live it; i.e by walking it out in your everyday life!

Stop allowing your intellect to compromise your faith in what God can do. This ain’t the first time, the odds have been stacked against you. Remember, what you see is only temporary, but the Word of God stands forever, eternally established and secure!

Precious one, worship God out of a spirit of faithful obedience. Encourage yourself, giving praise and Glorraaa to your God Who is Faithful and Powerful enough to keep every promise that He’s ever made.  Don’t stop til u getit, GETIT! #WALK IT OUT!

SELAH!

DIVINE INTENT

DIVINE INTENT

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?”
Isaiah 43:13

“They” say that The Holy Bible contains the words ‘fear not’ 365 times! That’s means there’s one for every day of the year. Apparently, the Holy Spirit is determined to convey how vital it is that believers maintain a certain stance of courageous faith in light of the imminent threats that shall come upon us to challenge our trust in God’s Sovereignty!

Jesus, The  WORD Incarnate, testifies that just as the world hated him they shall also hate us who have committed our personal faith and trust to Him . Yet, despite of the hostile environment in which we live, our Lord Jesus says, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

Yeah, that sounds good BUT! I hearya, ‘but I’m mortal and Jesus is God!’ Exactly! Satan, the Master of Deceit, never wants us to get this revelation. The enemies of God’s people are the enemies of God; therefore the devil has never nor shall he ever be a threat to GOD or God’s people! Didjaheardat? Bamm devil, the WORD is out!

Even on Satan’s ‘bestest’ day, it’s absolutely impossible for him to frustrate The Divine Will of God! The most wicked malicious contrivance of evil men are but a drop of water against the volcanic eruptions emanating from the finger-tips of The Almighty Hand of God! Hence, irregardless of how long—no matter how early in the morning and how late in the night, your enemies spends scheming against God’s elect, it’s always too short and to weak to stay the arms of El Shaddai!

God does not need any one or thing’s permission or approval to bless you! When God intends to bless you, who can stop Him? What God blesses no man can curse! Remember Balak? (Ref. Numbers 22) God is not intimidated nor deterred by the daunting eyes of your adversaries. While they’re plotting against a child of God, He’s already prepared to bless you right in front of their angry faces. “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Psalm 23:5

Truth be told, there’s nothing like eating a Porter House steak in front of someone who doesn’t want you to have a bologna sandwich, right? Can’t you just see the envy in your enemy’s eyes—not to mention how shamefully powerless they are to block your blessing? Talk about messed up, huh? The Lord of Hosts sits upon the circle of the whole earth, declaring to the world His Counsel against which nothing shall stand! No wonder Jesus says, ‘cheer up’! Oh Ggggllloooraaaaa!!!

Beloved, don’t be anxious about a thang! (Ref. Philippians 4:6) God has purposefully set up every circumstance you will ever experience to ensure that there are witnesses to the miraculous deliverance that He’s about to perform in your life! He will never leave your destiny in the hands of any other than Godself! (Ref. Jeremiah 29:11)

Rest assured, when JESUS SAYS YESSSSS—NOBODY CAN SAY NO! THAT’S WHATCHA CALL DIVINE INTENT!

SELAH!

“Have a WONDER-FILLED day!”
