Human nature is to dissect and analyze  our  brothers’ and sisters’ while neglecting the idea that it should be the very opposite, it start’s with self. Allow the Holy Spirit room to come in and entertain your every action before uttering one word or thought that may affect the lives of others, think before speaking or comparing, Ponder  These Things in Your Heart.

As the Psalmist so eloquently stated, “let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight , O Lord my strength and my rock” (19:14).

My meditation of him shall be sweet, I will be glad in the Lord (104:34).

When the angel appeared to Mary, there was no questioning her fate, was her response,” I Ponder These Things in My Heart that I might be used as Gods’ vessel to serve his purpose?”  It is one of the virtues of wisdom when we are able to set aside time to meditate and in tune our thoughts to silence that surrounds us. When the Holy Spirit is at work, opening our minds, listening and being obedient is an act of servitude that is pleasing to God. It is then we are assured that whatever is before us is in the process  of being worked out under the watchful eye of “the Potter,” so learn to still your spirit by stating to yourself these words of thought, “I Ponder These Things in My Heart” and patiently wait.

Remember the pattern Jesus designed, step by step in his teachings. His chosen followers were always around setting at his feet, listening and absorbing his teachings but did not fully comprehend the  meaning of it all until his death on Calvary and his resurrection, which means that they were obedient listeners and followers,  somewhere along the way each of their thoughts may have been,  “I Ponder These Things in My Heart.” When the time was appointed and appropriate they were able to draw strength from the very One who had so patiently laid the foundation of their growth to reach the world at large.

One may wonder about how many Great Prophets of the Bible responded when an assignment came from God.  There inner thoughts are not revealed so I imagine they said to them-selves, I Ponder These Things in My Heart and therefore I am obedient to the call of service from God. Noah when instructed to build an ark that would house a future world never questioned his assignment but moved in fear and obedience.  Moses gave excuses as to why he should not be the one chosen to free the Israelites from bondage when enslaved in Egypt, Imagine that even when in uncertainty   he to spoke the words to himself, “I  Ponder These Things in My Heart” and followed his instructions. Abraham, when called upon to sacrifice his son, move with wisdom and fear  did  he have the same thought process, I Ponder These Things in My Heart? He too was obedient and followed instructions, believing in faith that God will provide. The list is endless as to how through faith and obedience, and these words “I Ponder These Things in My Heart, may have  indeed became an important of the outcome we all may experience as we put our trust, our lives in Gods’ hand and be obedient.

Now have you pondered these things in your heart?

Ephesians 4:32 ESV 

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Mark 11:25 ESV 

And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”

1 John 1:9 ESV 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Matthew 6:15 ESV 

But if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 18:21-22 ESV 

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.

Matthew 6:14-15 ESV 

For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

James 5:16 ESV / 280 

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

TIME FOR ALTER CALL:

HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNITAL LIFE

What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul.  What must I do to be saved, you asked?  If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer.  When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9Acts 20:21). Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15).  Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16Acts1:8John14:26).

JESUS CAME WALKING ON WATER…

God has favored you and rewarded you for greatness…

My Brothers and Sisters, on this day, you were awaken into your brand new reality of a day you have never seen before, nor experienced any of the joy or even the pain, that lies ahead of you at this very moment in time.

But you have a choice to embrace the moment to go with the flow, and experience the possibilities of a greater reward by accepting the fact that God has favored you and rewarded you for greatness as His Servant, or you can follow the devil’s plan and miss out on your blessing all together.

The choice is truly yours, Jesus awaken you into His Marvelous light and allowed this thought to enter into your mind, now I ask you, “WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BELIEVE?

Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins. (Mark 11:22-23 MSG)

“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!

TODAY IS YOUR DAY TO PRAISE GOD!

God’s Marvelous Light (Photo by Pastor Davis)

In the context of the above statement, there are some of you who might have the odyssey to ask the question, why?  Then I will respond in kind with these words, because your life today is a blessing to be cherished, although you might not see it this way.  However, just being alive is a humbling experience that too many of us take for granted.  Nothing in this life is guaranteed, even our awaken this day.

Therefore, if we learn to look on our lives as a blessing and the opportunity to praise God for all he has done for us, then we should be able to shout Hallelujah, God is good, and I am going to praise him no matter how difficult things may seem at this moment in my life.  No one are no circumstances are beyond my ability to give God all my praises, for he has truly been good to me.

Now listen to how the Bible teaches us how we should praise God.  It says,“ Hallelujah! You, who serve God, praise God! Just to speak his name is praise! Just to remember God is a blessing— now and tomorrow and always.  From east to west, from dawn to dusk, keep lifting all your praises to God!

God is higher than anything and anyone, outshining everything you can see in the skies. Who can compare with God, our God, so majestically enthroned, Surveying his magnificent heavens and earth?  He picks up the poor from out of the dirt, rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash, Seats them among the honored guests, a place of honor among the brightest and best.  He gives childless couples a family, gives them joy as the parents of childrenHallelujah(Psalm 113:1-9 MSG).

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy house of worshippraise him under the open skiesPraise him for his acts of powerpraise him for his magnificent greatness; Praise with a blast on the trumpetpraise by strumming soft stringsPraise him with castanets and dancepraise him with banjo and flutePraise him with cymbals and a big bass drumpraise him with fiddles and mandolin. Let every living, breathing creature praise GodHallelujah(Psalm 150 MSG).

MY MAXIMIZE PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY:

Today, heavenly father, we thank you for America, we thank you for its people and all the leaders that you have set in place. We seek your blessings over all it’s affairs that you will grant her peace and prosperity as she set her sails to lead and guide the world as a peaceful and loving nation.  In Jesus name we pray, Amen!
