Monday’s Word of Encouragement (Over Coming the Opposition)

Each day we awaken we will always be faced with opposition in our lives. The challenge for us as we begin this brand new week is to over come the opposition, lift our sites towards the heavens, come boldly before the throne of grace and know that God has given you the power to beat the devil at his own game, and say, “through God I can do all things, and not worry about the opposition, because God is strengthening me, He is blessing me, and lifting me higher and higher day by day.

Wednesday Inspirational and Motivational Service (Be Persistent)

persistence 01

In today’s message I want to take this opportunity to encourage you in your walk with God to be persistent.  Read, study and use the gifts God has provided to you to accomplish your desired goals in this life.  Never give up and never give in, know that God has a blessing with your name on it and He waiting on you to be persistent in reaching out and claiming it.  The devil will put up many road blocks to keep you from obtaining what God has already provided for you, but if you do not be persistent in reaching out to get it, there will be no one to blame but yourself.

Now click on this short video and let Pastor Davis provide you with the rest of the story…

If this lesson has been a blessing to you, please share it with others so that they too may receive the blessings of the Lord…

Monday’s Word of Encouragement (You have the Power)

THE POWER OF A FREIGHT TRAIN

THE POWER OF A FREIGHT TRAIN

YOU HAVE THE POWER

Why are you always saying I don’t have the power to do this are to do that?  I’M just a no body; I am not going to get promoted to that position, they are not going to let me become the choir leader, I can’t write a new blog every day, I can’t write a book, I can’t get up every day and exercise, I can’t speak in front of that many people, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I just don’t have the power nor the energy to get up and do those things.

I ask you why you don’t.  All you have done is told yourself what you can’t do. Then you work diligently every day to convince yourself why you can’t do them.  You always put other people in front of you, pointing out the great job they are doing while waking up every morning looking in the mirror, putting yourself down and making excuses of why it is so difficult for you to do what God has given you the power to do.

God has provided you with a very special and unique gift.  Your job is to discover that gift that is waiting on the inside of you to be birth.  He has also equipped you with the POWERS to do great and mighty things.  (Jeremiah 33:3)  Power is truly what you have when you begin to truly BELIEVE on the Word of God.  Why?  Because there is POWER in the WORD, but only when you BELIEVE!  The WORD will never fail you when you BELIEVE in it.  The WORD is truth, the Bible says, “Know the truth and the truth will set you FREE.”  (John 8:32)

Now if you truly want to gain control of self, discover your real gift and activate the powers that God has already provided to you, the first thing you need to do is change your thinking from what you can’t do and begin by believing that you can do it by saying over and over to yourself these words, “I can do all things I choose to do through God who strengthen me.  (Philippians 4:13)

Believe that you can overcome your fears of not being able to accomplish the goals that you have set in the past for yourself, rise above the negative thinking that has surrounded you and move into that place that the Lord has called you to be.  It is never to late to make a change, you are never to young nor to old to begin.  You have to start from right where you are this very moment and begin to move forward.  For God never assigns His Servants a task without first fully equipping this with all the necessary tools to succeed at the assigned task.  He has provided the Holy Spirit to teach you, guide you and help you in every way possible.

Now listen to how the Lord’s supports you as you make the changes in your life to become successful in choosing to obey the Word of God, step out on your faith and stir up the gift that God has placed on the inside of you.  He says, “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

You have the power, now activate it and receive your blessings!

Relationship Strategies (Time for Reflections)

Time for Reflection

By Shirley Rhodes

 What happens when you feel as if you are all alone?

 What happened to those friends who walked by your side and interacted with you, saying they have your back? Through-out a life time you are apt to encounter such friends as these. As you grow and mature you are likely to experience situations where you’ll have moments of joy as well as disappointment.

It is a time of reflection and a  reminder as to how God is able to lift you  above moments of disappointment  and encourage your heart to let you know that all is not lost, for in him is where your strength lies.

When you feel as if you are all alone? God says, “If you will hold on to me for dear life, I’ll get you out of trouble. I’ll give you the best care if you only get to know me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times. I’ll rescue you, I’ll give you long life, give you a long drink of salvation.” (Psalm 91: 1-16, MGS)

What happens when you feel as if you are all alone, you’re at a crossroad in life? There comes a point in time when you must choose, you must make decisions, those type things that guide you towards your assigned destination. Those friends you once thought you could not do with-out is no longer a part of what or who you seek to be, that only means that you are coming into your  own, beginning to realize the value of life.

What happens when you feel as if you are alone? Once you’ve tapped into the source you have gained a friend for life. For Jesus says, “I will never leave, nor forsake you,” those words reassures us that beyond our worldly thoughts, our spiritual connection brings us into a whole new dimension of life, we are now new creatures in Christ Jesus, who is our friend and provider, always watching over us and listening to our cry for help. He is not like man; he hears and will acknowledge our requests at the time appointed. So, rest assured my friends, you are never alone.

Relationship Strategies (Breaking out of the prison of Loneliness)

IS LONELINESS KEEPING YOU IN A PRISON OF DARKNESS?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE ALL ALONE?

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

Let us begin this day by understanding that we are never alone when we learn to lean and depend on Jesus.  Now think deeply on this, when you are feeling loneliness in your life, because learning to lean and depend on Jesus requires you to turn away from the things of this world, which include your worldly thoughts.  Now listen to how Jesus teaches us to lean and depend on Him, He says, “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. (John 15:16 ESV)”

What happens when you feel as if you are all alone?

What happened to those friends who walked by your side and interacted with you, saying they have your back? Through-out a life time you are apt to encounter such friends as these. As you grow and mature you are likely to experience situations where you’ll have moments of joy as well as disappointment.

It is a time of reflection and a  reminder as to how God is able to lift you  above moments of disappointment  and encourage your heart to let you know that all is not lost, for in him is where your strength lies.

When you feel as if you are all alone?  God says, “If you will hold on to me for dear life, I’ll get you out of trouble. I’ll give you the best care if you only get to know me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times. I’ll rescue you, I’ll give you long life, give you a long drink of salvation.” (Psalm 91: 1-16, MGS)

When you realize that the very people you considered to be friends will go to any level to cause you harm or pain you must have a spirit of forgiveness even when you are alone.

It is when you are alone that you ask God to help you understand why things happen the way they do and don’t carry the burden of heaviness alone. Unforgiveness can destroy friendships, take away your joy in life and can even damage your health. So, the best thing you can do is release those feelings and repeat to yourself, “I am choosing to forgive those who have stolen from me, broken my heart or caused any physical or emotional damage.  Lord thank you for giving me the ability to release, and for peace and joy to journey on in faith. Fill my heart with love greater than I’ve ever had for all of my friends, you are my peace. Thank you.”

What happens when you feel as if you are all alone, you’re at a crossroad in life? There comes a point in time when you must choose, you must make decisions, those type things that guide you towards your assigned destination. Those friends you once thought you could not do with-out is no longer a part of what or who you seek to be, that only means that you are coming into your  own, beginning to realize the value of life. Many go through life never reaching this point, but when you connect to the source, you’ve connected to the One that will always be there, no matter the season.

What happens when you feel as if you are alone?  Once you’ve tapped into the source you have gained a friend for life. For Jesus says, “I will never leave, nor forsake you,” those words reassures us that beyond our worldly thoughts, our spiritual connection brings us into a whole new dimension of life, we are now new creatures in Christ Jesus, who is our friend and provider, always watching over us and listening to our cry for help. He is not like man; he hears and will acknowledge our requests at the time appointed. So, rest assured my friends, you are never alone.

We pray that this message has been a blessing to your soul, and you will begin your daily walk with God lifting Him up as He picks you up and takes you to that high place that He desires for all His Children to be.
