PRAY AND BELIEVE

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, so why not pause your busy body and mind, you’re going and coming; go into your prayer closet and pour your heart out before God as you consider your life and where you are in it this day.  God is in the prayer answering business and He wants to answer your prayers and show you how you can live a joyful, peaceful life, and prosper in all you do. Do you Believe?

PRAY AND BELIEVE

Three of the most powerful words in Scripture can be found in Matthew 7:7. They are ASK, SEEK and KNOCK.  Do you Believe?

The Bible teaches us that what ever we ASK God for in order for us to receive it we first must believe in order to receive.  Do you Believe?

Here we have an invitation to ask God in prayer for the desires of our heart, to ask and keep on asking, to seek and keep on seeking, to knock and keep on knocking.  Do you Believe?

Know this that wisdom and power for the Christian life will be given to all who earnestly and persistently seek and pray for it. Do you Believe?

Now with our wisdom and understanding, let us lift God up in our Prayers, praises and worship. Let us be persistent in all that we do in the name of His son Jesus.

LET US PRAY:

Now let us all be on one accord as we lift up the Lord in Holy praises…

Oh Lord, my God I bless your Holy name this day, I lift you up in prayer, praise and worship for you are worthy to be praised.  Thank you Lord for the blessings of your Children that have entered into your house of prayer, joined together as one people, for one common purpose to honor you and do your will.

TIME FOR ALTER CALL:

If there is anyone who have not received the saving grace of our Lord and Savior we encourage you to click on this short video clip and pray this prayer with us right now…

We thank each one of you who have taken the time to enter into our virtual house of prayer and praise service this day.  We bless this message to you and pray that you will take it and bless someone else.

Now may the saving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ rest and abide within each one of you as you enter into the next dimension  of your life, in Jesus name we pray, Amen!

Step out on your faith with reasoning

FAITH AND REASONING ARE ONE OF THE SAME…

REASON CAN COMMAND AN ENTIRE ARMY TO WAR OR IT CAN COMPEL ALL NATIONS TO PEACE AND HARMONY.

The Burning Bush (Photo by Pastor Davis)

God has created all things perfectly by His own reasoning and in His own time.  Therefore, who are we to question what is, is?  God commands us to remove all doubt from our minds and understand the things of the universe, and then perhaps we can develop the wisdom and knowledge to discern why the reality of God’s reasoning is what it is. Now listen to what the Bible tells us to do, it says, “Get skillful and godly wisdom, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation); do not forget and do not turn back from the words of my mouth.” (Proverbs 4:4-6 AMP)

Now understand that Faith comes by hearing which means perception, and perception by the Word of God. The Word is Logos, which means Reason. Reason or awareness directs your perception and determines your knowing.

To know as much of the Word of God is to know as much reason as possible. All wisdom, understanding and knowledge are for you to be convinced about the truth because you are aware of all the reasons that define it. To have absolute faith is to be totally convinced about the truth.

Reason or logic is what runs the entire universe. You need as much reasons as possible to do well.  Reason is what causes others to act and it determines how they act. The programming logic runs the program. If you want to move yourself or others to take a certain action, give as much reason as possible whether logical or emotional, conscious or subtle to persuade, direct and motivate them. Reason can command an entire army to war or it can compel all nations to peace and harmony.

God himself has perfect reasoning and total understanding of all there is. When we are lacking awareness about something but are clearly guided by him in a certain area, that is when we should trust in God with all our heart and not lean towards our limited understanding. God’s reason is the higher reasoning compared to ours. To reason against reason is treason. However, God still wants us to grow in awareness and understanding so that we may reach his level of reasoning and be of one mind with him.

Now I encourage you to Incline your ear unto understanding. Seek to know the reason of a thing. Seek to know all the reasons there are to know about it. Open your heart to be understanding so that you may receive the truth of a matter and not block it out of perception. You need understanding in order to do what is right.

Understanding gives us strength because it makes us bigger than our situations. Knowing all the explanations and reasons of a thing allows you to see it in a definite way. Faith is having certainty.

Some of us have the idea that faith and reasoning are in conflict with each other. They think that if you have reason, you do not need faith, and if you go by faith, you cannot go by reasoning. This paradox has caused the biggest problems in all religion and spirituality. The truth is that faith and reason are the same. In order to have faith about something, you need to know it as true. You cannot know something as true unless you have a reason for it to be so. Faith is reason and reason is faith.

Now in closing, I encourage you to know the truth, and the truth will set you FREE. (John 8:32)  Think globally and work locally allowing your mind to be filled with the truth of God’s word.  May the grace of God rest and abide in you now and forever, in Jesus name, Amen!

There is power in the Word of God

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO STAND FIRM WITH POWER?

Written by: Shirley Rhodes

This question may seem strange to some; Do You Have What it takes to Stand Firm with Power? In all actuality it is a defining question if your goal is to live out your created purpose. The Christian journey is an opportunity to share life’s teachings, so don’t waste time needlessly because your journey is God given, your destination is where you’ll spend eternity.

When you make the decision to follow Jesus your life takes on a different meaning, there will be life changes that often seem unbearable, you lose many “friends” and often members of your own family may withdraw because they have not yet been able to grasp the entire picture.

A servant, a follower of Jesus can expect hard times, tough times, hard work and dedication, but learn to take it all in joy knowing the purpose of their calling.  The servant or follower is encouraged to reach out to the lost and those seeking to know more about this wonderful relationship so graciously offered.

Remember the Great Commission as Jesus instructed: “Go into the entire world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15) We are to familiarize ourselves with this thought; “to every creature” so that everyone may know their freedom has been brought and paid for in full by a resurrected Savior.

Once you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit the question, Do You Have What it takes to Stand Firm with Power should become a part of who you are in Christ.  Remember when Jesus called the Twelve together, how he gave them power and authority and to proclaim the kingdom of God? (Luke 9:1-7 NIV) that same power lives today in true believers because it is God given.

In order to work under the anointing of the Holy Spirit your character must be that of clear thinking, gentleness, holiness, and honest love. We are called to work, as believers we become one body in Christ and all power was given to Jesus by God for Jesus so stated: “His Father have given him power over all flesh “(John 17:2) through his sacrifice we are able to share in that gift. Through him we are encouraged to use our gifts as instruments of peace sharing his gospel with others. Do you have what it takes to stand firm with power?

Stand Firm

For we are many members in one body, and all members have not the same office (Romans 12:4), knowing this gives each of us the opportunity to develop and enhance whatever that gift is to draw the lost, it may be a gift of  prophecy, ministry, or  teaching, whatever your calling is prepare your hearts and spirit for opposition. Always remember God has created and assigned you with purpose; therefore, as long as you’re in Christ Jesus nothing or no one can tear you down, but the attempt will be made. In your weakest moments, trials and struggles, do you have what it takes to stand firm with power?

Jesus is your Master, salvation comes through him, in obedience and faith embrace his teachings, follow his pattern for life and you’ll never regret one moment because your destination is not earthly but heavenly (eternal). Dedicate your entire being before God, and watch how he changes you from inside out, how he is able to bring the very best in you to the surface. Put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:11-18),  when you’re confronted with discouragement and find yourself wondering, do you have what it takes to stand firm with power, you’ll know the answer at the appointed time.

Today My Brothers and Sisters, I thank God for each of you who take the time to visit with us, read and study and share the important lessons with your followers, families and friends. May the Lord bless you and your ministries abundantly in Jesus name, Amen!

Wednesday Inspirational and Motivational Service (Possibility Thinker)

POWER IN THE POSSIBILITY THINKER

DO YOU BELIEVE?

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,  for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.  For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;  he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. (James 1:2-8 ESV)

Thank you my dear brothers and sisters for reading, studying and watching our video lessons. May the Lord our God add a blessing to the hearer and doer of His Holy Word.

How to allow old man patience to have his way with you

DEVELOPING PATIENCE IS A WAY TO TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND

STANDING AT THE GATE OF OLD MAN PATIENCE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

STANDING AT THE GATE OF OLD MAN PATIENCE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Many times in our lives, we come face to face with many difficult situations. We stand at the crossroads of life wondering which direction we should take. At this junction, the crossroads offers us an opportunity, to make a life changing decision that could affect the rest of our lives.

Once again, we ask ourselves, which direction should we take? Our thoughts begin to take us on the journey that we initially set out to experience. As our minds begin to roam in the great distance, our patience begins to grow thin. We question ourselves again and again, and then ask, why have we been led to this point? Our not knowing sometimes brings fear, and fear fills us with anxieties, that hinder our perspective in knowing that God has our backs and led us to this crossroads in order to teach us the patience we need to carry us through to our destination.  At this point, we need patience to develop within us.

Developing patience first starts within our minds, our thoughts, and our thoughts become things. You must now intentionally commit to observing delayed gratification for a better end.

Patience is having the ability to delay immediate gratification for a greater good. Developing patience also means bettering your character. In addition, your patience allows you to assess a situation with greater clarity yielding to the best possible outcome.  It can allow you to see the completion of a thing or the completeness of it. It is a position of wisdom to have great patience in all matters.

Now listen carefully to how the word of God begins to teach us how to develop the necessary patience’s that will take us to our destination:

Developing Patience means entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.

There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit! (Romans 5:1-5 MSG.)

Finally My Friends, Patience is also the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or pro-vocation without acting on annoyance anger in a negative way; or exhibited in forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer term difficulties. Patience is a level of endurance so one’s character can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being in steadfast.”

Now through all your many trials and tribulations, I encourage you to begin learning this very important art of developing Patience within your Spiritual Mind. Let God have His way with you, and stop rushing ahead of God.  When you do this, you will soon discover Old Man Patience working and slowly but surely turning your life around.  Stop being impatience and Old Man Patience will show up in just the right moment in time.  We pray daily for you in the name of Jesus, AMEN!

Monday’s Word of Encouragement (God will never give up on you)

BE ENCOURAGED GOD WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU

REFLECTING POOL (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Below is a letter sent from Paul an Apostle of Jesus Christ to believers everywhere?  It is a letter of encouragement with a promise from God just to remind us in case we forget just how much God really loves us and that he will never give up on us.  This is truly a great reminder of just how much God loves all of His Children, and this is one fact we should never ever forget. Now listen to what Paul tells us:

He says, “I send this letter to you in God’s church at Corinth; believers cleaned up by Jesus and set apart for a God-filled life. I include in my greeting all who call out to Jesus, wherever they live. He’s their Master as well as ours!”

May all the gifts and benefits that come from God our Father, and the Master, Jesus Christ, be yours;

Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives.

Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.  (1 Corinthian 1:1-9 MSG)

Therefore, Children of God, let me Encourage you today, to stand still, look towards the hills from which all your blessings are flowing, calm your mind, allow Jesus to open your spiritual eyes that you may see His blessings flowing all around you. Allow Him to open your spiritual ears that you may here Jesus voice speak to you as he says these words, “MY DEAR CHILDREN, BE ENCOURAGED, GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU ARE FORSAKE YOU!
