God will usually break you down, then give you a breakthrough! That’s the process I’ve learned recently. You have to go through~! Are you listening…… you usually break down before you breakthrough.
Everybody wants the breakthrough – but are you willing to pay the price of the break down? Are you really ready for what comes after the time on the floor? Does your barometer go that far? These are questions that came up before the latest breakthrough and they are real. The price has to be paid!
Let me encourage you – don’t give up, don’t give in. Keep the press button ON until you see the results of your labor and expectations. Actually – You will get more than you expected if you don’t lose heart. I’m happy and excited for you! We just never know what lies around the corner of faith – until we take that turn……!

Some characters are born out of struggle. Long-suffering is a strength that brings God glory.
In Psalms 31:9 … David was hiding from people who wanted to kill but him, but he realized that God had always been his protector and fortress. Verse 15 says “the course of my life is in Your power”. David knew the power of God and even in life-threatening circumstances – he knew – one way or another — he would win!
Can you dance in the rain? Sure you can when you possess the joy of that the Lord gives us. Jesus had seen God the Father in all his majesty and He knew He would have to suffer in order to get back to that place where God resides.
God is faithful to those who love Him. He never turns His back on us!

We need to hold on the that grateful heart we shared around the table during Thanksgiving. Surely life goes on, and we will be faced with challenges, adversities and opportunities. What matters most is the condition of our heart when life happens. And one thing we know we can count on is the TENDER MERCIES that we get new for each day.
When we look at the world around us, we could easily become discouraged. It is far better that we look to the Creator of the world remembering that He is still in control. Looking to Him will help our hearts to stay calm and say, “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Today is a great day to put some old things down and pick up a new and fresh perspective on how to live. Tomorrow isn’t promised to any one of us and it sure would be a tragedy to waste a day in sadness, jealousy or vengeance. Grab
you tender mercies and go bless somebody today! God’s eyes are always on the righteous – be that!

Seasons in our lives change just like the four seasons of nature. We are wise to prepare for a rainy season or winter. Yet some times things will change without our permission and catch us off guard. One constant we can count on is the fact that God knew it was coming before the chill of winter or heat of summer arrived. In His infinite wisdom I believe He is always trying to prepare us for what lies ahead.
There has been a shift in my life and I feel compelled to share a couple nuggets I learned along the way. 1) Before God will promote you to the next level there will be many character test. 2) Realize that man cannot determine your steps – God does and He uses man. 3) Waiting patiently is crucial, moving too fast can use you to bump into a wall. 4) Once you have passed 1-3 God takes over and propels you forward.
As children of God, our work on the earth will not be completed until we see Him face-to-face. Meanwhile keep planting good seeds, watering, working for the kingdom, and giving Him all the glory. Make today one of your best!

When we have trusted God to do his perfect will in our lives – we get to wait for the full manifestation. We also have to believe that Father always knows best, and He never makes a mistake. We know that He will not always give us what we want, but will surely give us what we NEED!
The last four months of my life have been a realization of God’s manifestations of guidance, provision, correction and grace. Boy did I learn some lessons. First of all we should never jump out in front of God – it only leads to headache and self-inflicted hardships. Secondly, when we want something from God for His kingdom – don’t do it yourself – allow Him to always lead. And third, learn to WAIT. When earthly desires have a heavenly reward – they must be carefully executed by the power of the Holy Spirit. God can do what no man can!
Ultimately His glory will always shine through. Learning the watch and wait is a power move for us humans. Once God has proved us – He can release some amazing blessings that will propel us forward. Listen for His voice today!

I love the story of that small man David knocking out that great big giant. It is very inspiring and empowering to recall how the big bad guy fell at the hands of the man of God. One swing and he was down and out……!
Now interpret that into a spiritual story and here’s what happens. Considering that we wrestle not against flesh and blood and the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, we truly battle in the spirit. Here are some of the dark giants I’ve seen trying to control the people of God: depression, fear, anger, threats of physical violence, adultery, fornication just to name a few.
This morning I woke up in battle mode grabbed my rock (prayer), put it in a sling (on my knees) and began to stomp around knocking out every demonic force that came close. Sometimes you have to go into the trenches laboring for what is going on in our world. Do not be deceived ~ the enemies of our souls are real. But greater is He that is in me, than he that is in this world. I am more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. The battle is not yours ~ it’s the Lord’s. The victory has already been won. Stand in the power of HIS might.

Some of us may have forgotten that miracles still do happen. When Jesus walked the earth, performing miracles was part of His purpose. And He continues to do miraculous things all around us daily. I believe in miracles – do you?
Recently we began a ministry at the Rescue Mission where they provide emergency housing for women and children. Those women would agree that miracles still happen because some told me that when God reached in and saved them – it was a miracle! We should never get caught up in the ability of humans, but always remember that our God is truly the miracle-worker!
