Getting caught in any storm can sometimes be a very dangerous place to be. Many people have lost their lives, limbs and property after getting caught in some of the most dangerous and violent storms that appear sometimes un-expectantly. My question to you is this; Can you maintain your FAITH IN THE EYE OF THE STORM and not panic and become filled with fear, doubt and evil thoughts and not asking Jesus, why did he allow this to happen to you?

Today and for the rest of the week the North Eastern part of the United States is experiencing a blizzard snow storm and in some ways it is a very beautiful sight and in others ways it is a very dangerous storm.  I lived in the North East for many years and experienced many heavy and dangerous snow storms.

Therefore, I encourage each of you, in the midst of the storm, do not fear, worry, an become overly excited, remain calm, stay focus, remember the Lord knows what you are experiencing, he cares about you, he loves you and he will come to your rescue. All you need to do is call upon the name of Jesus. (Jeremiah 33:3)

Believe in the Vision

GREATNESS 01

My dear brothers and sisters we want you to truly “Believe in the Vision that God has provided to you. In our Saturday’s service we ask you to “BELIEVE,” “WHY?” Because this is what the word of God said to you, “truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:14 ESV)

In our Sunday service we ask you to “TRUST GOD” again this is what the Word said, Trust in the Lord with all your heart,and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him,
 and he will make straight your paths. (Proverb 3:5-6 ESV)

Finally God spoke to his Prophet Habakkuk and told him to write the vision, and this is what he said, Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. (Habakkuk 2:2-3 ESV)

In this lesson, we are encouraging you to “BELIEVE IN THE VISION!”

Now watch this video for the rest of the story:

 

 

Now may you enjoy the peace and blessings of the Lord, for it is truly his divine will that you shall prosper in all you do.  The devil cannot defeat you, because you belong to God.  Trust in him, believe in his word, obey his teaching and the vision will become your victory.

Time to Free your Mind and live Free (Part 2)

“NO MAN HOLDS POWER OVER YOU EXCEPT THE ONE YOU GIVE THE AUTHORITY TO DO SO!”

Free

In lesson one, we presented to you the problem of why you were not able to FREE your MIND and live FREE.  In this lesson, we will present you with the first prerequisite of what you must do in order to begin living your new life with a FREE MIND!

Start NOW by being determined to be FREE and become a TOTAL SUCCESS:

 

 

The first prerequisite of having the great abundances of this life is to be set FREE.  Your mind has to be FREE of the bondage that is keeping you from having all the things that you desire in this world.  It is not that man is not providing you with a job to meet your basics needs that is hindering you from having.  It is your own thought process that is keeping you from having; your dependences upon another man to provide you with a job that God has already told you to use your own thought process and you can have anything that you may desire.

images (17)

Free your mind and be free indeed.  If the Son of God Sets You Free, you must realize the greatest news of all and that is, “You are truly FREE.”  At a time when Jesus was speaking truth to power, this is what he said to the Jews and what he is saying to you and I right here and now, “Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will FREE you.” (John 8:31-32 MSG)

These are the words of truth that were birthed in you from the beginning of time.  They are the words that will allow you to create that job that you are concern about in order to be in a position to meet your basic worldly needs.  They are the words that will bring about that change from the old man to the new.  They are the words that you can take to the cashier at your bank, present them with a check with whatever amount you desire at the time and be guaranteed it will be cashed with no questions asked.

Dare to think Big

think big 03

When God created this Universe and all that it entails, He was thinking BIG and showing us how we too can do BIG THINGS if only we would allow our minds to think BIG THOUGHTS.

In this lesson today we want to show you how you too can manifest your dreams into reality simply by THINKING BIG.

Saturday Morning Devotional Prayer and Praise Service (Praying for Spiritual Empowerment)

PRAYING FOR SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT

Today my brothers and sisters, I want to encourage you to pray for one another, you pray for me and I pray for you. We have a greater responsibility in the work we do then we can begin to imagine. When the Lord, Our God called us into this ministry work, he carefully chose each one of his servants, he prepared them for the many challenges that they would face along the way. He equipped each one of his servants with the necessary tools to make the journey a smooth one. He blessed each servant with a praying spirit, and he told us that we must pray daily for SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT.

 

 

Now my Dear Brothers and Sisters as we enter into our prayers for one another, let us all understand this one fact; during the course of our lives, we all have had someone to pray for us. Prayer is the key that unlocks the door to our blessings, and when we learn that our purpose in life is to serve others, and we can truly be effective as a servant by praying in the Spirit for our fellowman, we are then moved to pray without ceasing.

Paul’s prayer for SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT for the Ephesians was that they be united by the Spirit, indwelt by Christ, and filled with all the fullness of God’s love. We know that God made the Holy Spirit available to all who believed in Jesus Christ as Savior. The Spirit provides power for our new lives.

The Prayer that Paul prayed for SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT was a beautiful and powerful prayer. Now listen to Paul words as he spoke them in Ephesians 3:14-21:

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height.

To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God, Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

We find that in this text’s prayer, Paul asked that the Holy Spirit deepen His work in their lives in three ways:
1. That Christ would dwell–more literally, “be at home” in their hearts by faith, that is, that He would move from being an acquaintance to being the center of their church family;
2. That they would grasp God’s love at a spiritual level, beyond intellectual or theological knowledge.
3. That they would be filled with God’s fullness, that is, that the Holy Spirit would reveal the things of Christ (John 16) more fully, achieving God’s fuller work in each life unhindered, unquenched, ungrieved.

My Brothers and Sisters, let not your hearts be troubled, but pray always for everyone and for everything. God is a prayer answering God and He is waiting on you to call him up on His Hot Line, and the only way you can do that is through your prayers. Therefore, if you truly want to be EMPOWERED to do the Lord’s will, learn to PRAY FOR SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT!

OUR SONG OF PRAISE:

 

We thank you for joining us this day as we begin our new year of prayer and praise services lifting up the Lord and thanking Him daily for our blessings.  He is truly an awesome God.

Live free in the beginning of this season

YOU WERE PURPOSED TO LIVE FREE IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS SEASON

THINK ON THESE THINGS: (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV) My Brothers and Sisters, out with the old, in with the new.  You are now living in the new SEASON of your life which you were PURPOSE for.  Let this new BEGINNING be one that takes you places you never image you could go before, because God has PREDESTINED YOU, EQUIPPED YOU and PURPOSED YOU for this SEASON.  Now let us together begin the journey for which God has already planned out for each of us:

Let us not dwell upon the sins and mistakes of yesterday so exclusively as to have no energy and mind left for LIVING RIGHTLY IN THE BEGINNING AND BLESSNESS OF THIS DAY,   and do not think that the sins of yesterday can prevent you from living aright today.  Begin today by getting right with the world, and aided by the accumulated experiences of all your past days, learn to live it better than any of your previous days; but you cannot possibly live it better unless you begin it better.  The character of the whole day depends upon the way it is begun.

Another beginning of great importance is the beginning of any particular and responsible undertaking.  How does a man begin the building of a house?

He secures a plan of the proposed edifice, and proceeds to build according to the plan, scrupulously following it in every detail, from the foundation up.  Should he neglect the beginning, the obtaining of an architectural plan, his labor would be wasted, and his building, should it reach completion without tumbling to pieces, would be insecure and worthless.

The same law holds well in any important work: the right beginning and first essential is a definite mental plan on which to build.  Nature will have no slip-shod work, no slovenliness, and she annihilates confusion, or rather, confusion is in itself annihilation.  Order, definiteness, purpose, eternally and universally prevail; and he who in his operations ignores these elements of precision at once deprives himself of substantiality, completeness, and the opportunity for success.

Yes, My Brothers and Sisters, this is truly your year for success in any and all areas of your life in which you have laid out a definite mental plan of action and now ready to put it to its test.  Nothing ventured, nothing gain.  “YOU WERE PURPOSED TO LIVE IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS SEASON!” 

In the next session of this lesson, we will discuss how your thoughts will affect your actions and plans as you move forward towards your goal of complete success.  Make sure that you do not miss out on any of these important lessons.  For additional studies on achieving success in your season please click on this link and subscribe to our youtube channel:

Now click on this video and share in Word that God has provided for us to begin our New Year and our walk with Him by letting go of the past and enjoy the freedom of the moment as we look ahead to be joined in peace and prosperity.
