WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

GOD DOES NOT SEE YOU THE WAY THE WORLD DOES because you are of great value in his sight, he knows your inner-most needs at all times. If your struggle is hate, doubt, sin, insecurity; whatever you hold in your spirit, know this one thing, only God can see the real you. Often in our spirits we are unfulfilled, driven, our lives controlled and dominated by others or things. “For you formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother’s womb; I will praise you, for I am wonderfully made, marvelous are your works and that my soul knows very well” (Psalm 139:13-14; NKJV).

How often do you find yourself in a position that causes you to feel and act like the person you aren’t, you become crowd pleasers; think about that, remember your goal and be reminded that GOD DOES NOT SEE YOU THE WAY THE WORLD DOES. It’s perfectly clear that who you are and what you’ve become is how God has designed you, you are his possession and he takes great pride in his children. Scripture puts it this way, “He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17 NKJV); therefore, with humbleness of attitude strive to be Christ like not void of understanding. We are encouraged to have the same mind toward one another by sharing love and being committed to the cause of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race set before us…(Hebrews 12:1).

You were designed with a purpose in the mind of God, in his image. As you go forth always remember that GOD DOES NOT SEE YOU THE WAY THE WORLD DOES. His spirit enlarges you with hope, strength, grace and ability to accomplish what has been set forth. Jesus has made the sacrifice for each of us; that in itself is joy unspeakable.
For the scripture says, “If we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more…” (Romans 6:8-9). You must continue to strive to reach that point where at some moment in time, you’ll share the eternal promise.

Good Morning CHILDREN OF GOD rise and shine for your light has come to lead you out of your darkness. Open your eyes so that you may see the glory of the Lord shinning all around you. It is time to get your praise on, for the Lord our God is worthy to be praised. For all that I am, and all that I will ever be, I owe it all to my God. Therefore, I will forever lift Him up in high praise and worship. Let us together praise the Lord, praise him with every ounce of breath that is in our soul. Clap our hands, stump our feet, dance all around like King David danced before the Lord to show that we are truly excited about praising Him any way and any where we can. Thank you Lord for allowing us to be in your present this day that we may worship you in high praises, for you are truly an awesome God.

OUR SONG OF PRAISE:
I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever
Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b]
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
The LORD is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love.
The LORD is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made. (Psalms 145:1-9 NIV)

LET US PRAY
Most holy and and all wise God our heavenly father. We have gathered here today in the name of your son Jesus Christ, to praise you and worship you. For you told us father that when two or more of your children gather together in your name, that you would be with them. So we are here today heavenly father, with high hopes, and great expectations, that you will pour out a blessing from heaven over the lives of your children, that their lives would become holy and sanctified and within each one of them, the Holy Spirit will search out their hearts, and re-create in them a brand-new heart that provides them with both physical healing and spiritual healing. Father we know that we all have sinned against you, therefore heavenly father we come forth this day seeking your forgiveness over our lives and the lives that you allow our lives to touch. So on this day father, we will go forward praising you for your mighty works in our lives, thinking you for the prosperity that is changing our present circumstances. Revealing to us the many successes that are in our future each and every day, Thank you heavenly father for the manifestation of a new reality of love, peace, and joy that has set our souls on fire and moving us higher towards that place that you have chosen for us to be. Today, we are declaring victory over the devil and his evil band of Angels that have been trying to destroy us. We declare all things working for our good as we move forward and closer to the victory that you have promised us, in Jesus name, we pray, Amen!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

OUR MESSAGE FOR TODAY IS:
I WILL GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE:

This is our 4th lesson in this series of Pastoral teachings to help you achieve success in your calling in this season. It does not matter what that calling may be, Pastor Davis provides you with a set of principles to help guide you towards your desired goals. You must click on this video and watch the entire message in order to receive your blessing.

QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers. You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us. We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions. May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 ESV)

When God gave these words to Jeremiah many generations ago, they were good for Jeremiah and his people then, and they are just as good for us to live by in this day and time. What we must learn to do is study God’s word, pray about the trials and tribulations we are experiencing, meditate on what God is teaching us, and seek God’s blessings over our lives and the lives of all of the people who God has placed in our presents.

For God truly does want to prosper us in all things. If he did not want to do so why did he promise us in this passage of Scripture that he had plans to prosper us and not to bring harm upon us?

My Brothers and Sisters, we will be teaching you the how’s and why’s of this lesson in our SUNDAY PRAYER, PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE.

It is promised to be a powerful message that God has given to me to give to you. Therefore, I encourage each of you to tune in Sunday and receive your blessing that is going to help you to achieve your desired goals, your dreams and visions that God has given to you for your SEASON OF BLESSINGS.

EXPERIENCING HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE

EXPERIENCING HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE

THE TOWER OF STRENGTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE TOWER OF STRENGTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

The reward for HUMILITY and fear of the LORD is RICHES and HONOR and LIFE. (Proverbs 22:4 ESV) Now I ask you, how many of you do not want to experience these blessings in your life. God is teaching us how to live as that new person in this season and experience a true abundant lifestyle, BY LEARNING HOW TO EXPERIENCE HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE!

In this, we are given a choice, we can befriend God are we can befriend the world. Some of us may say that we will befriend both God and the world, but in practice, we can only choose one way. The more we give ourselves to the world, the stronger will be our allegiance to the world. The more we give ourselves to God, the stronger will be our bond with him. This is what Jesus says, “Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be. (Matthew 6:21)

We have to remember, that we can find strength in the Lord, to live a humble lifestyle and receive all the lords abundant BLESSINGS. Although the world may consider us weak, when we show HUMILITY, this is because the world wants us to be filled with pride, and God sets himself against the proud, because pride makes us self-centered and leads us to conclude that we deserve all we can see, touch, or imagine. It creates greedy appetites far more than we need. Pride can subtly cause us to no longer see our sins or our need for forgiveness.

But remember this one great truth, HUMILITY opens the way for God’s grace to flow into our lives; thus, God shows favor to the HUMBLE.

Do not get so caught up in the ways of the world and the people that surrounds you, that you lose sight of who you are, who God is, who you are in God, that your heart becomes so hearten that you cannot HUMBLE yourselves in the presence of the Lord.

Understand this fact, “HUMILITY is not weakness; instead, it is the only place that believers gain courage to face all their temptations and sins with God’s strength.” As God gives us more grace, we realize that this world’s seductive attractions are only cheap substitutes for what God has to offer. It is our choice we can HUMBLE ourselves and receive God’s grace, or we can continue in our pride and self-sufficiency and experience his anger.

Now let me conclude this by leaving you with these two questions; (1). How do we, so prone to pride at the very moment when we think we might be approaching humility, discover true humility? (2). How do we become the kind of humble people who find the overflowing grace that God promises?

Well, listen to how Scripture teaches us to do it; “Let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” (James 4:7-10 MSG)

May the grace of God fill your lives with His overflowing blessings, and bring you much joy and peace now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

BATTLE READY REQUIRES A PRAYER LIFE

BATTLE READY REQUIRES A PRAYER LIFE:

"PRAY  WITHOUT CEASING"

“PRAY WITHOUT CEASING”

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:
BATTLE READY REQUIRES A PRAYER LIFE if you are going to stay in the race of life; remember this one thing, and allow it be the center of your thought process; “The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; nor riches to men of understanding; nor favor to men of skill, but time and chance happen to them all” (Ecclesiastes 9:11). In order to get to your destination you must learn to pray and to do so you must prepare your mind, heart and spirit by being watchful, determined or persistent, knowledgeable and obedient.

When the Israelites were led in the wilderness by Moses through divine intervention, they often lost hope and didn’t seek God in prayer because they only focused on what they could see and touch, things tangible. Even as they came to the threshold of receiving their greatest blessing, “a land of milk and honey” they doubted. Finally the Lord said to Moses, after noticing ungrateful hearts, spirits and attitude, “How long will these people reject me? And how long will they not believe me, with all the signs performed among them?” (Numbers 14:11; NKJV) As a reminder, think of your own spirit and heart of gratitude, never take for-granted what God allows into your space, remember that being BATTLE READY REQUIRES A PRAYER LIFE.

When you decide that it’s time to take control of the life God created and gave to you, make the choice at that very moment to keep prayer as the center piece. Allow time to study, get in the Word, for you are reminded through reading scripture that you must put on the garments for war-fare if you are going to win the battle for your soul. Where-ever you go, what-ever you do understand that this world is filled with distractions; but, when you are committed to living out your purpose always remember that in order to stay in the race you must prepare. Prayer anchors you on a solid foundation and it’s important to understand the true meaning of why being BATTLE READY REQUIRES A PRAYER LIFE, you cannot get very far detached from the source.

So be diligent in prayer for all things, lift up your head and search the heavens because every step you take is carefully arranged and observed by God, your giver of life. As the psalmist says, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills…my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2; NKJV)

My friend, live in expectancy of the flow of all God’s blessings, while remembering, BATTLE READY REQUIRES A PRAYER LIFE.

THE UNTAMABLE TONGUE BEHAVIOR AND CHRISTIAN CONDUCT

THE UNTAMABLE TONGUE BEHAVIOR AND CHRISTIAN CONDUCT:

"THE TONGUE IS FULL OF DEADLY FIRE" PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

“THE TONGUE IS FULL OF DEADLY FIRE” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:
THE UNTAMABLE TONGUE; BEHAVIOR AND CHRISTIAN CONDUCT defines your character, who you are in a worldly sense, as well as spiritual. “The fruit of righteousness is sown by those who make peace” (James 3:18; NKJV). We should all make it a mission in our lives to help bring about harmony and peace among one another. Jesus has instructed us and made known the true value of “Love” which without we cannot please him.

“The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity; so set among our members that it defiles the whole body and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell” (James 3:6). You bless God and say how much you love him yet without hesitation or reservation you cruse and devour one another; my brothers and sisters, it’s not of God. Jesus taught and preached love; genuine love for one another, the kind of love we all should allow to mold and shape our lives. THE UNTAMABLE TONGUE; BEHAVIOR AND CHRISTIAN CONDUCT goes hand and hand with how we choose to embrace his teachings and one another.

Christian conduct is always under scrutiny by non-believers as well as believers; therefore, you must present your bodies holy and acceptable before God. Giving God reverence and allowing him to dwell in and work through you, opens the doors of your heart to experience the beauty of not harboring hate and resentment, because you think before words of expression flow from your lips. “Carefully build yourselves up in the most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God’s love”… (Jude 1:20; MGS); keep at the forefront of your minds that THE UNTAMABLE TONGUE; BEHAVIOR AND CHRISTIAN CONDUCT you display can have lasting effects on the lives of those you encounter; therefore, do all things with love and respect.

Meditate on these words; “Let my prayer be set before you…set a guard , O Lord over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips” (Psalm 141:2-3; NKJV) because THE UNTAMABLE TONGUE; BEHAVIOR AND CHRISTIAN CONDUCT can build up or tear down.

REFLECTIONS OF GOD’S GRACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Good morning children of God, if it’s Sunday it is time for each one of you to rise and shine. For the light of the world has entered into your presence, open your sleepy eyes, stand up on your feet, look around you, see the glory of the Lord, it is everywhere. The Lord has blessed you with life health and strength, and put his glory within your reach. This is truly the day that the Lord has made, and it is a perfect time for us to rejoice in and be glad in it. Now I say to you my brothers and sisters, lift up your holy hands, open your mouth wide and just begin to praise God, for He is worthy, I say he’s worthy, to be praised. Clap your hands with joy; stump your feet with a new dance, for it is time to get your praise on. Let us all say Amen, Amen and Gloria Hallelujah, for he is so good to us. Now give the Lord a big hand clap of applause, and say Hallelujah. Amen!

SONG OF PRAYER AND PRAISE: THE PRAYER OF JABEZ

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: 2TIMOTHY 1:7 AMP
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

OUR MESSAGE TODAY FROM GOD’S MESSENGER PASTOR DAVIS
My dear brothers and sisters, you have been called to come into God’s class room of higher learning, and sit for a spell so that you may be filled with knowledge, power and understand of who God is, who you are, and who you are in God. Now in order to receive your blessing, you must click on the tape, and listen to the entire lesson, for it has been presented for the edification of your soul.

QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers. You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us. We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions.

POWERFUL WAYS OF OVER COMING YOUR FEARS

POWERFUL WAYS OF OVER COMING YOUR FEARS

FEAR NOT SAYS THE LORD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

FEAR NOT SAYS THE LORD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

SCRIPTURE: For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP)

In today’s lessons my brothers and sisters, we are providing you ways in which you may be empowered to overcome your fears. The fear that is hindering you from achieving the victory, that God has already provided for you. In Paul’s teaching to his son Timothy, “he told Timothy to stir up the gifts that was inside of him.” God wants us to do the same, he has provided us with many gifts, now I encourage you to stir up those gifts and overcome the evil spirits of the devil, and obtain the victory.

With this powerful gift given to us by the all mighty and powerful God, we have no need to fear. It is a state of mind that is causing us sickness, stress and physical illness that is destroying our lives. Change your thinking and change your life and you will begin to live in a state of blissfulness.

FEAR IS OF THE DEVIL
In addition, we are experiencing coping behaviors and seeing – avoidance, denial, being reactive, staying busy and this is somewhat predictable, as are the feelings produced such as anxiety and anger.
We can trace back what is causing such reactions, to a large degree, to unanswered questions such as these: Are we in this together, or is it everyone for themselves? Will we ever find our way out of this, and if so, how long will it take?

Among the unfortunate psychological side effects of a crisis like this is:
People feeling isolated and believing that they having to work out their work and financial issues on their own because everyone else is preoccupied;
A loss of confidence in our economic and political institutions, and leadership of all kinds, and finally
A resulting loss of self-confidence and even depression as people cope with the crisis in different ways.

We can feel powerlessness and hopeless, which produces a cycle of futility that can spiral downward. However, we do have a choice; and the choice is very simple: Let the fear control your reactions, or embrace the fear. At a time like this, we could easily go negative or reactive, with predictable results. We could go naively positive and be viewed as out of touch. We could bury our heads in the sands of busyness in the hopes the crisis will go away. But one thing is clear, this is one set of crises from which we can run but definitely not hide.

If we are not going to run and hide but embrace this fear, what do you need to do?

One of the most important things is simply this; “Stay grounded:” Find your own ground first, where you are your true, authentic self – what truly matters to you, your core values, your mission in your work. Find a quiet place to reflect on what is true vs. what is perceived. From reflection comes discernment, and with discernment come perspective and a more positive attitude.

Maintain a realistic optimism: Practicing optimism in the face of the daily reports of Armageddon is not exactly easy. But optimism creates its own energy. It’s easier if we’re grounded daily, which gives us perspective. And with a positive attitude, we can avoid overreacting and actually create an environment in which we are looking for creative solutions.

We thank you all for reading and studying with us. We encourage you not to miss our SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE. We will be continuing this powerful lesson in our Live Video Broadcast Service. So please tune in an be a part of the Blessing God has waiting for you.

WHAT ARE YOU FEARFUL OF?

WHAT ARE YOU FEARFUL OF?

BELLAMY MANSION MUSEUM OF HISTORY AND DESIGN ARTS IN WILMINGTON, N.C. (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

WHAT ARE YOU FEARFUL OF?

SCRIPTURE: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (1Timothy 1:7 KJV)

What is it about living in the beginning of your season that is causing you so much fear? We begin this year by telling you that God BLESSED you last year in such a way that he has chosen you to achieve the victory in this season. Then if God has chosen you to rise above the many frustrations, and obstacles that you would normally face on any given day, then why are you so fearful off moving forward towards your goals and achieving the victory that God has already blessed you with?

When you look into the book of first Timothy chapter 1 verse seven, this is what the word of God teaches us as Paul the Apostle’ has written, it says, “for God has not given us the spirit of fear.” let me repeat that one more time so that you don’t miss it, “for God has not given us the spirit of fear.” So if God has not given us the spirit of fear, then why are we faced with fear from every direction each and every day?

What is it that we are so afraid of that keeps us paralyzed in our tracks like a deer in the headlights of our automobiles? In this next sentence, Paul tells us that God gave us a “SPIRIT OF POWER, and then he gave us a SPIRIT OF LOVE, and he moved even further and he gave us a SPIRIT OF A COMPLETELY SOUND MIND.” By having a SPIRIT OF POWER, God is in EMPOWERING us to be able to overcome the evil spirits of the devil. He is saying to us, why should we just be completely paralyzed and sink back into our old habits, carrying all the same old baggage, making all the same mistakes over and over again? Do we not realize that God has shut the door on our past mistakes, and when God shuts the door tightly on something he will never open it up and allow it into our futures ever again?

Listen carefully my Brothers and Sisters; for I completely understand your fears, I have not always been immune from them myself. Yes, for many years I lived in fear of success of achieving the victory even though it was stirring me in the face. I did not want to believe that my goals were so easy achievable. God had called me into the ministry many years before I even accepted his call. I ran, I ducked, and dodged, I was like Jonah, I done everything I could to keep from walking into that pulpit and preaching God’s word as he had called me to do. Once I was able to be obedient to the call of God and begin to do the work that he had called me to do, massive success in my life became so easy, it was like turning on the water faucet and the water began to flow. God was blessing my life and all the people He had placed in my life. With the help of the Lord leading and the Holy Spirit teaches me, I was able to generate tens of millions of dollars for myself and so many others. I was no longer fearful of climbing to the top of the ladder that God had been trying to push me all alone. My fear of achieving the victory had evaporated because now God was using me in his own way to do his will, because my will was no longer important.

You see brothers and sisters, God provided me with the desires of my heart, he said “ask,” but when you ask, believe that I will provide to you what you ask for. When you ask in faith, be obedient to my word, and walk in the path of righteousness. Being obedient to the word of God help me to overcome my fears. Through all my ups and down I had to learn to trust God, lean and depend on him, and stop allowing the devil to fill my mind with evil thoughts, and begin to believe what thus says the Lord. By doing so I am where I am today, I am the son of the King; I am the disciples of Jesus Christ.

This will conclude today’s lesson, we will continue this discussion tomorrow and Sunday with tomorrows lesson title: “OVER COMING YOUR FEARS, LACK AND LIMITATION!”

LOOK TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP

LOOK TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP:

"FOLLOW THE PATH SET BEFORE YOU, WALK IN THE LIGHT." PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

“FOLLOW THE PATH SET BEFORE YOU, WALK IN THE LIGHT.” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

LOOK TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP THROUGH JUSTIFICATION:
God thought of you and gave you his breath of life; therefore, you are of significant value to him as you live out your created purpose. When faced with obstacles of life be reminded that no struggle is so great that God will not make a way for you to escape. You are too important to the purposes of God to allow circumstances to destroy who you are, situations experienced in the natural only come about to build your character and direct you to the next level of existence, “the race, the race, set before you.” The scriptures says, “…seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on earth” (Colossians: 3: 1-2; NKJV). Your justification is granted through your relationship with Christ in which you are striving to live out your eternal purpose.

LOOK TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP in HOPE:
Your hope should be built on nothing more than the “love” God has given through the sacrifice of his Son. What has transpired through the events of time is what build your life and encourage your spirit when storms of life begin to rage to the point you become confused or unsure. Lift up your eyes and center your thoughts on where it is God is challenging you to venture. There is far greater joy in knowing that where-ever your journey is destined to take you than struggling with darkness and doubt that this life has a tendency to place before you. Be persistent, allowing none of the stumbling blocks placed in front of you to derail you from your course. Remember the words of Jesus when Satan made an attempt to derail his purpose; Jesus said, “Get behind me, Satan, for it is written, ‘you shall worship the Lord your God, and him only you shall serve.’ ” (Luke 4:8; NKJV)

LOOK TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP and bring about Reconciliation:
It is the plan of God to reconnect to his creation and that include you. What he has done for you and me is that he gave his only begotten Son for that very reason. Focused on your purpose in life helps you to travel the path set before you even though it may include many set-backs. If and when you experience setbacks or uncertainty of where it is you are headed, rest assured God has a plan for your life, his only requirement is that you learn to trust him in all things.

God clearly tells us in his word, “I don’t think the way you think; the way you work isn’t the way I work…my word that goes forth out of my mouth shall not return to me empty-handed. They will do the work I sent them to do; they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.” (Isaiah 55:8-11; MGS). Jesus says, “I am the Road, also the Truth; also the Life. No one comes to the Father apart from me. I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you are joined with me and I with you…the harvest is sure to be abundant (John 14:6-7; 15: 5-8). Remember the root command, Love one another” (verse 17). Reconciliation brings each true believer in line with God’s plan and purpose.

LOOK TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP in perfect Peace:
God will keep you in perfect peace when your thoughts are centered on what it is he has created and purposed for your life. We are all different in how we use what has been prepared for this journey in life; therefore, you are unique, because you are someone of significant value to the process.”…we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access into grace in which we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:1-4).

When life tosses you a “raw deal,” understand that it is a part of molding and shaping your character for kingdom building. The scripture puts it this way, “We glory in tribulations, knowing, that tribulation produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character hope…these does not disappoint because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given for us” (Romans 5:1-5).
Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.”(John 14:27)
Amen.

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.

Therefore I say to you, let us all understand this one back; 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!

RECOGNITION IS THE POWER OF BLESSING

RECOGNITION IS THE POWER OF BLESSING

GRACE UPON GRACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

GRACE UPON GRACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

CHILDREN OF GOD, today you are truly BLESSED for the Lord, our God has placed in your hands the powers to BLESS other people. So on this day I encourage you to use your God-given powers to BLESS that person that is standing next to you or perhaps even sitting next to you. When you praise anyone, that person at once begins to unfold, as a rose unfolds and expands, because you are recognizing his Real Self. “RECOGNITION IS THE POWER OF BLESSING!” Recognition is a law, and what you recognize will become quickened and active!

When you BLESS a person, a place, a thing, you recognize THE PRESENCE AND POWER OF GOD within them, and your BLESSING calls forth the good into active manifestation. You tune yourself into the reality, or soul, of the person or thing.

Now listen to what the scriptures teaches us. “BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.

But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.

And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].” (Psalms 1:1-3). (AMP)

This one act incurs a double good. You help the person or thing you bless, and you consciously align yourself with the Power of All Good. What can you think of that has a greater fascination and allure than to know that through a simple act of yours, you can release the hidden good in countless persons, and make many apparently troubled situations smooth and easy?

Therefore my brothers and sisters, I encourage you to use your awesome powers the Lord our God has provided you with an sprinkle bless minds over the lives of all the people that God has placed in your presence. For this day is truly the first day of the rest of your life that make it have a greater meaning than self.

We bless this lesson to you today because God has provided it to us in order that we use it to bless your life. Now wait on the Lord and he will pour you out a blessing that you will not have the room in your space to contain all that God is about to give you because, “RECOGNITION IS THE POWER OF BLESSING!”

ASSURANCE, I WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE TO YOU AS A PRIZE

ASSURANCE, I WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE TO YOU AS A PRIZE:

“LIFE UNFOLD IN LAYERS LIKE THE ROSE, LEARN THE KEY” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

ASSURANCE, I WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE TO YOU AS A PRIZE, what more can we ask for? We strive to live in balance and harmony with nature and each other, yet we struggle from day to day, unsure of our directions and or calling. The Lord has promise to provide all that’s necessary for this journey, the assignment, our purpose.

The Lord says: “Behold what I have built I will break down, and what I have planted I will pluck up, this is the whole land; and do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them, for behold, I will bring adversity on all flesh, but I WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE TO YOU AS A PRIZE in all places, where-ever you go.” (Jeremiah 45: 4-5; NKJV)

When life is heavy and hard to take go off by yourself, enter the silence; bow in prayer, don’t ask questions wait for hope to appear (Lamentation 3: 28-30 MGS). There may be circumstances that you feel inadequate to handle or lack the desire to attempt. God is a God that will never place on you more than you can bear, he knows every weakness and trial you encounter; after all, he is the creator and finisher of all things.  His love is never ending and what he does it’s because he loves each of us, so don’t ever take that love for-granted. When you display spirits of being unthankful, you insult God by questioning his love; remember his word; I WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE TO YOU AS A PRIZE; to you, not someone else, that is his promise.

Let us search out and examine our ways and turn back to the Lord; Let us lift our hearts and hands to God in heaven (Lamentation 3:40-41). When the course seems rugged and stumbling blocks are in the way, know that in every situation, God has a ram in the bush, so learn to trust him to secure your present and future.

When it seems as if all is hopeless, say as the psalmist did; “I will lift my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help; My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 121: 1-2; NKJV), for he has promised that, “I WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE TO YOU AS A PRIZE in all places wherever you go.” The Lord shall preserve you from all evil (121:7).

This is a great time to refocus, renew, and reclaim your place in kingdom building by connecting to the branch from which the substance for life is always in a constant state of flow. Allow this to be a gift to yourself, one in which you make a choice to share with others the true meaning of love. Learn to love the way Jesus did; without restrictions, you will find that your heart fills with a new kind of joy and peace. The life you live is your prize possession, cherish the gift.

Good morning CHILDREN OF GOD, it is time to rise and shine. Get up, stand up, look up, and see the marvelous light of God shining on all around you. For God has blessed each one of us to awaken to the beauty of a brand-new day. He has given us another opportunity to lift up holy hands towards Heaven, open up our mouths wide and begin to praise him, for he is truly worthy to be praised. Are you ready to begin this day with praises in your heart? Then clap your hands, put a shouting spirit in your feet, it is time to get your Praise on, because it is truly good to praise God in his sanctuary. God has showed us a new way of living in this season and he has allowed us to come forth with an abundant amount of love joy and praise, now let us praise Him in the spirit like we have never done before. For this is truly the first day of the rest of your life. What a wonderful time to begin praising God like you have lost your cotton picking mind.

TODAY’S SONG OF PRAISE:

Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the godly!
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
Let them praise his name with dancing,
making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
he adorns the humble with salvation.
Let the godly exult in glory;
let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats
and two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations
and punishments on the peoples,
to bind their kings with chains
and their nobles with fetters of iron,
to execute on them the judgment written!
This is honor for all his godly ones.
Praise the Lord! (Psalms 149 ESV)

 LET US PRAY:

Most holy and all wise God our heavenly father, in the name of Jesus your only begotten son we beseech you this day for blessings over our nation and the leaders of the world. For we are facing many difficulties with wars and rumors of war, that are destroying the lives of your children throughout the world. Too many of our leaders have left you out of their decision-making process, which is causing much harm and difficulties in the lives of your children. Father we know not what is in the minds and hearts of these leaders, but we know that you do. Your children are suffering and crying out for Help. Hunger and starvation is running rapid throughout the world community, we are in great need of a divine intervention that will awaken the reality in our leaders in such a way that they may stop the slaughter of so many men women and children. Heavenly father we ask this right now in the name of your son Jesus Christ, who said that if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me. In Jesus name, Amen!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING:

I will take my stand at my watchpost 
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint.

The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith

And the Lord answered me:

“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.

TODAY’S MESSAGE:

NOW IS THE TIME TO WRITE YOUR VISION AND MAKE IT PLAIN. In order to understand the message and receive your blessing, you must clip on the tape and listen to the entire lesson.  “DO IT NOW!”

QUESTION:  How important is Alter Call?

It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do.  We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold.  How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior?  When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call.  Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL: 

If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me:  “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins.  If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE  in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers.  You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us.  We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions.  May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

REFLECTIONS UPON THE GOODNESS AND MERCIES OF GOD

My brothers and sisters, today marks a new beginning for all of us. For truly it is the first day of the rest of our lives. How we live it will determine the outcome of our eternity. Therefore, we encourage you to pause your thoughts of all worldly things, and allow your mind to become a “REFLECTIONS UPON THE GOODNESS AND MERCIES OF GOD!”

. The Lord has truly blessed us to be a part of this glorious moment. The Scriptures tells us this very important fact, it says, “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1 ESV)

Now let us understand that we have freedom from slavery to our sinful desires and to the Jewish law. But the freedom that we now have came at a great price. In order for us to enjoy ultimate freedom, someone had to set us free, and that someone was Christ Jesus. (John 8:32, 36)  Because Christ has really set us free, we should stay free. Christ’s has set us free from legalistic formulas, from God’s judgment upon sin, from all man-made rules, and from the subjective experiences of fear and guilt. We are to live it out, practice it, and rejoice in it! To turn back to the law and try to earn what Christ has already given marks his sacrifice.

Therefore my brothers and sisters, as we prepare our hearts and minds for our Sunday Prayer Praise and Worship Service, let us reflect deeply upon the price that Jesus Christ paid for the freedom that we now are able to enjoy to worship and serve him in our sanctuaries as free people.  Never again should any of God’s children have a desire to go back into slavery when God has freed you from anything.

Now let us begin this day to lift him up in praise and worship thanking him for all the goodness that he has done in our lives and the lives of our family and friends. For on this day we are surely a blessed people.  As we pray for you on the first day of the rest of your life, use it as a day of, “REFLECTIONS UPON THE GOODNESS AND MERCIES OF GOD!”

CHILDREN OF GOD, the Lord our God has brought us through and into a brand new year.  He has given us a brand new Season of Beginnings.  Now is the time for us to truly live up to our promises to make major changes and turn our lives around.  For the Lord truly wants to bless your lives abundantly and give you the desires of your heart.  I say to you, “if there has ever been a time and a season for you to receive all that you desire to have in your life, it is right now, in the Beginning of this brand new Season of Blessings the Lord has waiting in store for those who will pick up their cross, be obedient, begin to live a righteous life, lift up your Holy Hands in Praise and Worship, the Lord is ready to open up the windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing that you will not have room anywhere to receive it.”  This is the first Sunday of the rest of your life, let us Praise Him like you are crazy, and let nothing are no one stop you from shouting praises out to the Lord in every way and everyday for the rest of your life.  For He is worthy to be praised!

TODAY’S SONG OF PRAISE:

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
 I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

 Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.

The Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!  (Psalms 146:1-4,10 ESV)

TODAY’S PRAYER:

Eternal God, Our Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, we think you for all the blessings you showered over all your children throughout the world this pass year.  As we begin this brand new year, we lift you up in high praises and worship you O Lord and give you the glory for all that we are and all that you have done to make our living in this world possible.  We climbed the rough side of the mountain, and made it through the stormy season because you had set in our hearts a new season and time of our arrival at our destination.  Now that we are here to begin our living in this brand new season, we can do nothing but praise you Heavenly Father with every ounce of our being.  It is truly a glorious moment in time and we thank you, we love you, we honor you and we will live this life in this season giving you all the praise and glory, in Jesus name, AMEN!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end (Ecclesiastes 3:1,11 KJV)  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (Matthew 7:7 KJV)

LIFE PROCEEDS FROM YOUR MIND

Let us understand that our brand new life proceeds from the thoughts we entertain in our minds.  Therefore, I ask this question to see how many of you have thought about it and answered it honestly for yourselves.  Knowing that it was truly a day of celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, how did you center your thoughts upon this fact as you shared your moments with your children, family and friends?  Now think deeply upon it because the memories will help you live, enjoy and appreciate all there is to come from this day forward.  Remember, everything begins from the inside, your thoughts, your actions and who you are all begins in your mind with whatever your thoughts are.

When a person realizes that life in its totality proceeds from the mind, and to the way of blessedness is opened to him or her; they will then discover that they possess the power to rule their own mind, and to fashion it in accordance with their own thoughts and ideals.  At this point you will elect to strongly and steadfastly walk those path ways of thought and action which are altogether excellent; your life will become beautiful and sacred; and, sooner or later, you will put to flight all evil, confusion, and suffering; for it is impossible for a person to fall short of liberation, enlightenment, and peace who guards with unwearyingly diligence the gateway of their mind.

This year has truly been a profound blessing for those whose thoughts have been centered upon the Lord and have allowed the Lord to use them for the greater good of all mankind.  Now that the old year is coming to an end, and a brand new year is about to begin, let us change the way we see the world and all the people the Lord brings us in contact with.  Let us use our mind’s to sow good seeds so that in 2014 the manifestation of what we sow will be great rewards that will lift us to higher places than ever before.

CHILDREN OF GOD, please allow me to speak directly to your heart this Christmas.  For we all know that Christmas is a very special time of the year.  We look forward to spending time with our family and looking into the eyes of our Children when they begin to open their gifts.  This is all good, but the most important gift that we want to share with you is the gift of SHARING and CARING, and that gift comes from “LEARNING HOW TO GET GOD TO BLESS YOUR LIFE THIS CHRISTMAS!”

Many of you are wondering why your life and the life of your family is in such poor condition, think on  this message of praise, and if you are not giving God all your praises day by day then the answer should be quite simple, and the solution to being able TO GET GOD TO BLESS YOUR LIFE, and lift you up out of poverty is to begin praising God for whatever condition you might find yourself in.  Just open your mouth and praise him even if you are facing eviction from your home are apartment, no food to eat, no job to go to, your marriage are relationship has fallen apart, you have been stricken with a crippling decease, you ought to look towards heaven and say, thank you Jesus for this opportunity to praise you, because I know that the conditions that I find myself in today, shall be no more.  Thank you for allowing me to experience your marvelous light of this day.  From this moment forward, I am going to praise you, HALLELUJAH!

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy house of worship, praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power, praise him for his magnificent greatness; Praise with a blast on the trumpet, praise by strumming soft strings; Praise him with castanets and dance, praise him with banjo and flute; Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum, praise him with fiddles and mandolin. Let every living, breathing creature praise God!  Hallelujah!  (Psalm 150 MSG).

When your life becomes filled with praises, he will put a smile on your face, new words on your lips, new clothes on your back, new strut in your walk, your rent is paid, your car note paid, plenty of fresh food to eat, pain and heartaches gone, stress and worries gone.  When you come into the full knowledge and power of these changes taking place in your life, then you will know, “HOW TO GET GOD TO BLESS YOUR LIFE!”

Now I ENCOURAGE each one of you to make this CHRISTMAS SEASON to be the most BLESSED SEASON of your entire life.  Next season is not promised to any of us, therefore, what we do today and how we do it is the most important challenge of our entire lives.  Let it be filled with praises for the Birth Celebration of our Lord and Savior.  When you do this, you will begin to experience the Lord’s Blessings in your life like nothing before.

MY MAXIMIZED PRAYER OF PRAISE

Father in the name of Jesus, I pause all of my actions this very moment, lift my head towards the sky and say thank you for allowing the sun to shine on me this day.  I praise you Heavenly Father; I glorify you, for you are worthy to be praised. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.  Nothing can stop me from praising you, giving you the glory and honor for all that you have done in my life and the lives of all the people that you have placed in my care.   Thank you Heavenly Father, and may you forever allow all my deeds, my words, my actions and my thoughts always be nothing but one of praise.  In Jesus name, AMEN!

“CHRISTMAS IS A TIME TO SHARE LOVE, PEACE AND JOY” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

LET US COME TOGETHER AND MAGIFY THE LORD for he is the greatest gift of all as you celebrate this holiday season. This gift does not come contained in a box or wrapped expensively. There is no variation in the price of this gift because the price has been paid in full, which is why God gave to each of us the greatest gift of all, his Son. “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a Son and they shall call his name Immanuel, which is translated, “God with us” (Matthew 1:23; NKJV).

When you decorate that tree, sing those carols filled with laughter and joy, remember the reason for it all. Jesus, a tiny newborn baby born in a stable, wrapped in pieces of cloth and laid in a feeding trough, just for you. So great was the gift, “… after Jesus was born in Bethlehem…wise men from the East came…asking, “Where is he who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:1-2). “…, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy…when they saw the young child… and fell down and worshiped him…they presented gifts to him…”(Matthew 2:9-11).  It’s Christmas a joyous time of the year; so, LET US COME TOGETHER AND MAGNIFY THE LORD for he is worthy.

Christmas tradition has been shared from one generation to the next, celebrated culturally expressing gratitude for the gift of a Savior, a King. When you kneel in prayer, remember the children around the world that the true meaning of Christmas will never lose its’ meaning and be replaced by the cares of this world. Pray that they will learn to recognize the value of such a gift as the baby Jesus. Join hands with family and love ones, set aside differences and LET US COME TOGETHER AND MAGNIFY THE LORD this holiday season.

PEACE BRINGS YOUR HEART AND SPIRIT IN LINE WITH GOD’S PROMISE

PEACE BRINGS YOUR HEART AND SPIRIT IN LINE WITH GOD’S PROMISE:

"MAY THIS SEASON BRING ESSENCE OF PEACE  FOR ALL" PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

“MAY THIS SEASON BRING ESSENCE OF PEACE FOR ALL” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

PEACE BRINGS YOUR HEART AND SPIRIT IN LINE WITH GOD’S PROMISE for he is a promise keeper. God gave his Son as a sacrifice in order to bring his creation back in line with his purpose for all humanity; unselfishly ensuring freedom for all. There is no human entity capable of displaying such unbounding love and grace. When we make the decision to accept him as Lord and Savior of our lives he lives in us and perfect us for his purpose, “for he is our peace…” (Ephesians 2: 14; NKJV) in him our joy is complete.

Sometimes it’s beneficial to do some soul searching and ask yourself, how do you want to live your life? If you’re in search of peace and harmony you will discover that PEACE BRINGS YOUR HEART AND SPIRIT IN LINE WITH GOD’S PROMISE. Sooner or later life will throw you a “wild card” which could be sickness, material loss, disharmony, and or a lack of sense of direction, you may even find yourself at a point in life where it seems none of the pieces fit together properly. Refining often causes you to think about who you are and where God is leading you in order to fulfill his purpose for your life; with God on your side nothing is ever lost.

Peace is described as a calm response; Jesus says in his teachings, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you; let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John: 14: 27), for he knows the many trials and struggles you face that seeks to destroy your character in an attempt to move you out of the line of his will, but he keeps you still. With your mind focused on Jesus and the eternal purpose, be mindful of how you approach this mission, anchored in  the word of God; because, PEACE BRINGS YOUR HEART AND SPIRIT IN LINE WITH GOD’S PROMISE.

“It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy”… (Colossians 1:9-12; MGS); when we are at peace with one another that PEACE BRINGS YOUR HEART AND SPIRIT IN LINE WITH GOD’S PROMISE; as Paul so eloquently stated, “May everything good from God our Father be yours” (Colossians 1:2).
