“BE AND ENCOURAGER”

As we begin a brand new week, walking out our purpose in this life, let us learn how to use our prayer life to ENCOURAGE one another.  “We are truly our brothers and sisters keeper; therefore, we should be about God’s business in helping one another to move forward in this life as we all grow in His grace being an ENCOURAGER!

Listen to what Paul tells us concerning this matter, he says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.  (Philippians 2:4 ESV).  As we read this, let us understand that we as believers should not be completely absorbed in his or her own affairs, but should also be interested in others, nothing their good points and qualities.  A sure cure for selfish ambition is appreciative recognition of others’ good qualities and their walk with the Lord.  It is easy to get caught up in competition, aggressive acquiring and vying for our own rights and needs.  But compared to knowing Christ, those interests seem shallow.  We need Christ’s attitude of self-sacrifice to look beyond ourselves to the needs of others.

LET US PRAY:  Eternal God, our Heavenly Father, we begin a brand new week in your presents seeking your blessings over our Nation, our leaders, our families, our friends and all those that you have brought forth into our lives as a blessings to our souls and the work we do. We move forward this day and this week thanking you Heavenly Father for the abundance of your love and prosperity that is flowing into our lives to meet the needs of all our brothers and sisters.  Let not our own selfish ambitions hinder us from reaching out to help others that are in need. Help us to shift our focus and our thinking from our worldly needs to the great abundance of all spiritual truths.  Let our prayer life be the focal point of lifting each other up in such a way that you may clean us up and use each one of us for the building of your Kingdom and the eternal salvation of all your children.  In Jesus name, we pray, Amen!  Now click on this video clip and listen for the voice of God speak to you.

TIME NOW FOR OUR WORSHIP SERVICE OF THE DAY:

Pastor Davis teaches this very important lesson for this Sunday, simply titled:

HOW TO GET GOD TO BLESS YOUR LIFETPhoto_00013

The very first thing that you need to know when you want God to bless your Life is you need to be filled with praises.  God created you to Praise, Worship and Serve, and God wants nothing more than for you to praise Him.  When praises go up, blessing come down; Now if you are one of those people who 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!”

LET US PRAY:

Father I thank you for picking me up when I stumble in my daily walk.  I thank you for sending down bread from heaven to feed my family.  I thank you for watching over me day by day, and allowing me to be right where I am.  It may not be right where you want me to be, but I am moving and growing every day, and I know without a shadow of doubt that it is nothing but your grace that is sustaining my life and the lives of all my family and friends.  I thank you Heavenly Father, in Jesus name, Amen!

Thursday Scriptures of Encouragement (Enslaving Power of Sin)

LIVING IN SPIRITUAL DARKNESS (Photo by Pastor Davis)

LIVING IN SPIRITUAL DARKNESS (Photo by Pastor Davis)

FREE YOURSELF FROM THE ENSLAVING POWERS OF SIN

by Shirley Rhodes

The gospel is the power of God for salvation to all who are faithful.  God loved us so that he sent his Son to break the Enslaving Power of Sin on our lives through his redemptive death on the cross. Though we humans are weak and unworthy God showed his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). The fact is that no human being can break the power of sin and stand righteous before a living God. God in his grace choose to reign over those guilty who surrender, and put their trust in him, through Jesus we become innocent, children of the King, the power of sin and death is broken.

 The Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus fills our hearts with hope, love, joy and peace. When we face the Powers of Darkness we are encouraged to stand firm in faith, the Enslaving Power of Sin has already been taken care of.  If God is for us, who is against us? In all creation nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:39).

 As Jesus prayed for his followers his main concern was that they follow the pattern and to genuinely show love and concern for one another.  He knew that they would face stiff opposition because he himself had. Even so, he didn’t live according to the world standards or his chosen followers; he prayed that God would guard them from the Evil One because he knew the competition for their souls would be fierce.

The ultimate goal was and is for all to become one heart and mind in Christ so that the world might  desire to know him and his teachings, to  encourage others by making known to them Gods’ word, that through Jesus Christ the Enslaving Power of Sin has already been taken care of.

Relationship Strategies (Overcoming Despair)

 SHATTERED BUT NOT BEYOND REPAIR

SHATTERED BUT NOT BEYOND REPAIR (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES   

How often do you find your-self moving from place to place, person to person looking for love; love that always seem to be just beyond your reach?  Sometimes we allow our hearts and spirit to become “play toys” in the hands of those who take pleasure in wounding and maiming others, we then find ourselves Shattered but not beyond repair. When we find ourselves hurting, disappointed and even lost, we must not allow despair to become a controlling factor in our lives. The One we need is there to catch and cushion the fall; we are gently loved and cared for.   Maybe the very circumstance you’ve just came from is a lesson learned to get you to where He has purposed you to be; you may be shattered, but not beyond repair.

If you are looking for someone else to carry your burdens in a relationship, and things don’t exactly work out as planned, you may find yourself Shattered but not beyond Repair. Remember that whatever you are going through; Jesus has said, he would never leave nor forsake you. What you must decide to do is look beyond your present circumstance, focus on where God wants to take you, lift your head high and with determination follow the path he has designed for your life, hold him close to your heart, for you are never alone.

When we awake each day with great anticipation of what the day will bring; it is not a time to allow dread and feelings of defeat to become the major player in the process. We are in a position to take our shattered lives, and place them in the hands of the Master Potter. He carefully planned our existence; therefore, when we find ourselves in a state of confusion and chaos, shattered but not beyond Repair; remember, He is able to mend the broken pieces.

May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble (Psalm 20:1 KJV), may he grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose (4); may he fulfill all your petitions (5). When you find yourself is a state of “shattered but not beyond repair” may you find safety within the arms of the Lord, where all your needs will be administered in LOVE.

We pray that this lesson has been a blessing to your soul and that you will use it and bless someone else this day as it is purposed.  Click on the link below and visit our home page for some additional studies.  You can also click on our Categories Section and stroll down to Relationships and read all our Relationship Strategies.

Thursday Scripture of Encouragement (Wise Parenting)

PROVERBS GUIDE FOR WISE PARENTING:

PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Traditional parenting seems to be conforming toward more flexible ways of parenting. Today’s discipline discourages spanking and stress using some form of reverse psychology, such as the points system. It is a fact that children are going through a growth process at different stages as they grow and develop; therefore, defiance and control becomes tools used to get their way much of the time. The question is, “Are we successful at child rearing or has the process become one of rearing more focused independent children?” The future generation will be leaders, teachers, and so much more; will they be effectively equipped to step into their designed purpose for life?

Proverbs Wisdom teaching is not outdated but should be a part of the process in healthy growth and development. For the scripture reminds you this way; God has no use for the prayers of the people who won’t listen to him (Proverbs 28: 9; MGS).

Discipline your children while you still have the chance; indulging them destroys them (Proverb 19:18; MGS)

Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge… (Proverb 1: 7; NKJV)

Children are a heritage from the Lord… (Psalm 127: 3)

Children who lash out against their parents are an embarrassment and disgrace (19:26)

Point your children in the right direction—when they’re old they won’t be lost (22:6)

Young people are prone to foolishness and fads; the cure comes through tough-minded discipline (22:15)

Don’t be afraid to correct your young ones, a spanking, in fact might save them from something worse than death (23:13-14)

As parents, children are entrusted to your care for a while in which molding and shaping their lives becomes your responsibility. It is wise to examine the scripture for guidance while applying your daily teachings and instructions in the process.

What are your views on parenting in these trouble times?

Wednesday Inspirational and Motivational Service (You are the Universe)

TODAY’S MIND REALITY THOUGHT:

MIND REALITY THOUGHTS

You are the Universe and the Universe is living through you…We might think that we are doing our own thing when we try to walk a different path that the universe wants us to walk. But we are not really doing what our true selves wants to do. It is because the universe is not something outside of us telling us what to do. The universe is us!

THE UNIVERSE IS LIVING THROUGH YOU

Good Morning my brothers and sisters, it is Wednesday Morning the middle of our brand new week, a moment and time for us to be inspired and motivated while allowing our thoughts to grow as we prosper and come into the full understanding of who God is, who we really are and who we are in God as we live in this physical world and allow our thoughts to reside in the spiritual ream of the Universe.

Now listen to what Jesus told us and be enlightened, He said, “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation is intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.”  (John 15:5 MSG)

MAN AND THE UNIVERSE

MAN AND THE UNIVERSE

Therefore, let us understand that the universe is one gigantic being and we are all parts of the same being. The universe is living and expressing itself through all parts of itself. We were created as part of the universal work that is in operation. Therefore the work that we came to do is not our own but the work of the universe. Everything we need to experience a life full of joy, fulfillment and abundance is present when we walk the path that the universe has for us. It is only when we walk our own path that we experience lack, frustration and fear.

We might think that we are doing our own thing when we try to walk a different path

THE UNIVERSE IS LIVING INSIDE OF US

THE UNIVERSE IS LIVING INSIDE OF US

that the universe wants us to walk. But we are not really doing what our true selves wants to do. It is because the universe is not something outside of us telling us what to do. The universe is us! The universe is your true self. You are bigger than you may realize. In the larger scheme of things, you are just a portion of the bigger you which is the universe, and you are here to do what the total you has purposed for you to do.

You and the universe are one, and when you know that, you will understand the true meaning of what it means to be in divine harmony with all that is. Everything you do has an effect on everything else that exists. There is never one thought or action of yours that is insignificant no matter how small it is. Think of your thoughts and actions as the thoughts and actions of the universe itself. Every single thought and action you make affects the whole universal you. You will never again think small about yourself.

The universe is unlimited and infinite. When you know that you are the universe, you will know that your true nature is unlimited and infinite. We only experience limitation and lack when we separate ourselves from ourselves. A branch that is cut off from the vine loses its source of supply and therefore it withers and dies. Since the universe is abundant and unlimited, all we have to do is to go with the flow and we will experience the joy of being provided in every moment and transcending limitations that we face.

Relationship Strategies (Overcoming Relationship Fears)

FEAR NOT (By Pastor Davis)

FEAR NOT (By Pastor Davis)

ARE YOU CAPABLE OF OVERCOMING YOUR RELATIONSHIP FEARS?

At some stage in your relationship,  fear in one form or another is likely to surface  and undermine your happiness.  Therefore, I ask you this simple question, “Are you capable of overcoming your relationship fears?”

Now Let us begin this discussion by taking a look at some of the most common types of fears that occur in our relationships and consider some possible ways in which to help you overcome them.  First lets watch this short video by Minister Terri as she speaks truth to power on this subject of fear. The title of her message is, “fear not, for there is nothing to fear.”  At the conclusion of Minister Terri’s message, please continue to read the rest of the story and then at the bottom of the page take a moment and post your own thoughts on how you have been able to overcome your relationship fears.

 

 

Recent studies have found that the most prevalent relationship fear is the fear of being rejected by or losing your partner.  When it first dawns upon you that you are deeply in love with a person and find them irresistible, it is difficult not to assume that everyone else must feel the same way about them too.  Therefore, your emotions of fears begins to rise and your thoughts tell you that “someone better” will entice them away from you.  Or, when you are about to make a commitment – say, when you are on the verge of deciding to live together, or you have decided to ask that person to marry you,  you fear that cementing the relationship in this way will somehow make your partner feel tied down and scare them off.  Or, when your relationship has stood the test of time and you feel happy and settled, you might one day suddenly be afraid that your loved one might just decide to walk away from the relationship.   Perhaps you might start thinking, what if that person becomes ill and suddenly dies?  Of course death is something that we all are going to experience at some point in time.

Take a moment now to reflect on your relationship fears, and write down your five worst fears.  Now, taking each of these in turn, ask yourself these questions: what would I do if this happen?  Who would be sympathetic?  How would life be a month later?  A year later?  Through these questions you are facing up to your worst fears; and by making contingency plans in case any of these fears is actually realized, you are taking away much of their power over you.

Remember, your fears are what keeps you stuck in yesterday’s situation.  It is hard for your relationship to grow and prosper when you are constantly thinking of your worst fears manifesting themselves into reality.

Another common relationship problem (almost the opposite of fear of loss) is fear of
commitment.  This can arise from a bad experience in a previous relationship, whether as a child with a domineering parent, or as an adult with a previous, overly possessive partner.  It may also stem from low self-esteem you believe that you don’t deserve to be loved.  The way to deal with this type ofcommitment fear is to probe through your past, try to pinpoint the cause and, again, face the fear. This can take courage, but it is well worth it, because once you can accept whatever happened in your past and move on, you will be free to be truly present in your relationship.  There is a third cause of commitmentfear—that, deep down, you think you might have made the wrong choice in partner.  If this is truly the case, you owe it both to yourself and to your partner to be honest, to admit your doubts and to walk away from the relationship.

A forth type of fear is trust.  Do you truly trust the person that you are with to do right by you now and in the end?  Is this person truly a person of their word?  Are they always honest with you are do they say one thing today and do another tomorrow, are still perhaps they give today and take back tomorrow?  When the chips are down and the future looks dim and all the opportunities are very slim, can you trust this person to stand with you are will they run back to their family?  These fears are real and you must face them now, and face them by confronting the truth in the reality of knowing that this person is the one person that you can truly trust to stand by your side when everyone else and everything else is against you.

A further type of fear that requires consideration is the fear of violence (not just physical abuse, but alsoverbal abuse as well, such as threatening behavior and shouting).  If you feel that your partner has a problem with violence, take a firm stand.  Demand that they take a course in anger management or undergo counseling to learn to control themselves.  If they do not agree to seek help, it might be best to leave the relationship until they do.  Love cannot survive in an
atmosphere of fear.

MY MAXAMIZE PRAYER: Father I thank you for allowing me to be in your presents this morning. I realize that I have fallen short of your glory, and I have done many things that were not always pleasing in your sight. But today father, I seek your forgiveness, and ask you for
strength to overcome the obstacles that are keeping my relationships from blousing into full bloom. Give me the wisdom to understand, the power to overcome, and the peace to enjoy all that is in front of me.  In Jesus name, Amen.
