Get on board the train of Desire

Get on Board the Train of Desire

Good Morning my Dear Brothers and Sisters, as we enter into the beginning of another promised awesome week, we have set forth in front of us many challenges and opportunities to do great things in our lives beginning this day and this very moment.  It all begins by having a desire to do, to be and go where ever you may DESIRE your life long DREAMS to take you.

Have you ever wondered why some people succeed in life while so many others seem to either stand still, fail are turn around and go backwards in their lives, well it all comes down to this one word DESIRE.  You must have a strong DESIRE for success before success will arrive. You must be willing to fight and keep on fighting for what you DESIRE to have and soon it will magically show up because your DESIRE was so strong to have it and you were not willing to give up on your DESIRE and you were willing to GET ON BOARD OF THE TRAIN OF DESIRE that would take you to your final destination.

Now click on the short video clip below and allow Pastor Davis to tell you the rest of the story:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

BE AN OVERCOMER:

Don’t allow worry to be the choice for your life, the decisions you make and the goals you inspire to reach. For Jesus says, “Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me (John 14:1; NKJV). With all of your passion, suffering and tears learn to release and trust God for all your needs.

BE AN OVERCOMER by developing faith and waiting on God. Make a decision to get to know him personally because he lives within you. While you’re aiming for perfection, set spiritual goals, see opportunity and then the obstacles. Become a faith warrior and decide that living as such brings you into the presence of God because you depend on him, he will supply you with all substances necessary for a life well lived.

BE AN OVERCOMER by not being careless, apathetic and indifferent; learn the meaning of living in a calm state. In choosing to do so you will make better decision and choices. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God (2Corinthians 3:5).

BE AN OVERCOMER and value yourself because God sees value in you; therefore, be diligent in service with a willingness to work for what you need. When you’re moving forth in your purpose, he has promised to supply what you need to accomplish your goals. You are encouraged to be anxious for nothing but in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6). Again I say, God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory and by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

Today if you find yourself struggling with situations that seems far reached remember this, worry will not change your situation. Determine to accept where you are and keep moving towards your goal because life is filled with possibilities, BE AN OVERCOMER.

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.

THE PENALTY OF DISOBEDIENCE CAN CAUSE YOU TO LOOSE

There are times we chose to follow our own path or listen to others without realizing the end results. The penalty of disobedience can cause you to lose what God has for you. He gives us tools needed to accomplish even the most “minute” assignment when we are obedient and allow him room to work through us. If the assignment is not one of his choices he moves us to a place that he has his eyes on for us. It is therefore the very reason why we should seek directions through diligent prayer in faith. As you study God’s word you encounter many who went contrary to assigned orders and lost.

The Penalty of Disobedience can Cause you to Lose:

Set aside time to study Gods’ word, it is there you’ll encounter life choices that went contrary to instructions from God. In the Old Testament you’ll encounter disobedience, testing of God through worshiping forbidden gods and idols. For example, Baal became on object of worship in which people choose to neglect Gods instruction for life. Oh, how they angered God, he handed them off to plunder who stripped them of their strength and dignity. God being the God he is would come in and save them from their enemies’ oppression, because he is a God of compassion.

Throughout the reign of kings you’ll see  how God’s instruction took a back seat in decision making and man decided to do things his way and how the penalty of disobedience can cause you to lose greater blessings.

We today are no different, we fail to set aside time and space to establish a real relationship with our Master Jesus. Many of “life’s choices” are made solely on what we think we know  without  considering  the true source of all that we need, the one who is a constant presence waiting to be tapped into.

Just for thought, think of how and why some people choose to do wrong knowing the end results. Remember, the penalty of disobedience can cause you to lose. Jesus is a prime example of injustice, even though he brought a message of life and hope for all; he was hung on a cross. It was a bit too late for those who allowed and participated in the process when they came to the realization of their actions, because “the Penalty of disobedience can cause you to lose”, they found themselves on the losing end.

It is in our own best interest to think long and hard about where we are and what it is we are purposed for on this earthly journey while keeping our eyes on the prize; freedom in Christ Jesus, who see and know every move we make and every thought we act upon. Let us learn the true meaning of being obedient servants working toward common goals that are well defined and pleasing in the sight of God.

LEARNING HOW TO CHANNEL YOUR FAITH

LEARNING HOW TO CHANNEL YOUR FAITH

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

 

FAITH IN THE BEAUTY OF SPRING (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

Channeling Your Faith requires changing how you think and your relationship with God, your higher power. We tend to strive for things in the world that will complete or identify who we are instead of whose we are. We adapt to our surroundings allowing that to form our character into the very image of worldly ways or standards that is what’s expected, we’ve come to believe.

Channeling Your Faith assumes a totally different path. Faith requires obedience which moves us from the position of being caught up, conforming to the world’s way. We are reminded of Jesus, his teachings and the pattern he’s given to follow; therefore, we cannot worship two God’s at once. Making the decision to step out in faith requires commitment and sacrifice. Scripture reminds us that faith is not what we see with our mortal eyes but it is a hope (a trust) planted deep in our spirits.

In channeling your faith you make the decision to follow God and in doing so don’t concern yourselves with material gains because there is more to life than what you eat and wear; more to who you are than clothing.  Jesus described it this way: “Observe the birds how they are free, unfettered, and careless in the care of God; we are of far more value to God. Observe the wildflowers and all their beauty, they never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and designs quiet like it? Even those who are best dressed look shabby in comparison.” Just think, If God give so much attention to wildflowers and birds, won’t he take care of you, take pride in you and do his best for you? (Matthew 6:25-33)

What you can do is pay attention to God, how he works, he has promised to take care of his own. So, don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. James 4:13 puts it this way, “We don’t know the first thing about tomorrow, we are nothing but a wisp of fog, catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing. Instead make it a habit to say, “If the Master wills it and we’ll still alive, we’ll do this or that.”

So you ask, what is the process for Channeling Your Faith? Place everything about you before the Master Jesus, embrace him and his message, become interconnected within the pattern; be willing to change the way you think, don’t become so well adjusted to the world that surrounds you that you’re not able to recognize what it is God wants from you and wants to do through you; embrace the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. For once in your life dare to be different, allow God’s love to flow through you, from your center, focus on the eternal purpose and move in faith. Allow faith to be your road map, guide, friend and companion and in that, Christ will do within you a mighty work. We are all created and chosen for a purpose.

There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Every part of Scripture is God breathed and useful one way or another–showing us the truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Learning how to Channel Your Faith molds and shape you for the tasks God has especially for you to share with others, his way.

We hope that this lesson has been a blessing to your soul.  If so why not share it with someone else and allow them to receive their blessing this day.

 

RISE AND SHINE PRAISE GOD AND RECEIVE YOUR BLESSING

RISE AND SHINE PRAISE GOD AND RECEIVE YOUR BLESSING

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 most 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 skies;
Praise 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).

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 whatsoever 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!

MY MAXIMIZE PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY:

Today, heavenly father, I lift you up with all praises and thanksgiving as I give you all the glory for all that you have done in my life and the lives of the people that you have allowed the words of this ministry to touch throughout the world.  For you are God and there is no other greater than you. I thank you Father for the supernatural power that is working in the lives of your children throughout the world. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!  My brothers and sisters, I minister to you from a position of peace, power, purpose and prosperity.  I reamin your brother in CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

GOD CALLED MOSES THE EXODUS STORY CONTINUES (PART 5 OF 5)

The Death of the Pharaoh’s Firstborn (1872 pai...

The Death of the Pharaoh’s Firstborn (1872 painting by Lawrence Alma-Tadema) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

GOD CALLED MOSES TO GO AND RESCUSE HIS PEOPLE FROM SLAVERY (PART 5 OF 5)

Strike Ten: Death and the Passover (Exodus 11:1-10)

God said to Moses: “I’m going to hit Pharaoh and Egypt one final time, and then he’ll let you go. When he releases you that will be the end of Egypt for you; he won’t be able to get rid of you fast enough.

“So here’s what you do. Tell the people to ask, each man from his neighbor and each woman from her neighbor, for things made of silver and gold.” God saw to it that the Egyptians liked the people. Also, Moses was greatly admired by the Egyptians, a respected public figure among both Pharaoh’s servants and the people at large.

Then Moses confronted Pharaoh: “God’s Message: ‘At midnight I will go through Egypt and every firstborn child in Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sits on his throne, to the firstborn of the slave girl working at her hand mill. Also the firstborn of animals, widespread wailing will erupt all over the country, lament such as has never been and never will be again. But against the Israelites—man, woman, or animal—there won’t be so much as a dog’s bark, so that you’ll know that God makes a clear distinction between Egypt and Israel.’

“Then all these servants of yours will go to their knees, begging me to leave, ‘Leave! You and all the people who follow you!’ And I will most certainly leave.”

Moses, seething with anger, left Pharaoh.

God said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s not going to listen to a thing you say so that the signs of my presence and work are going to multiply in the land of Egypt.”

Moses and Aaron had performed all these signs in Pharaoh’s presence, but God turned Pharaoh more stubborn than ever—yet again he refused to release the Israelites from his land.

God said to Moses and Aaron while still in Egypt, “This month is to be the first month of the year for you. Address the whole community of Israel; tell them that on the tenth of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one lamb to a house. If the family is too small for a lamb, then share it with a close neighbor, depending on the number of persons involved. Be mindful of how much each person will eat. Your lamb must be a healthy male, one year old; you can select it from either the sheep or the goats. Keep it penned until the fourteenth day of this month and then slaughter it—the entire community of Israel will do this—at dusk. Then take some of the blood and smear it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which you will eat it. You are to eat the meat, roasted in the fire, that night, along with bread, made without yeast, and bitter herbs. Don’t eat any of it raw or boiled in water; make sure it’s roasted—the whole animal, head, legs, and innards. Don’t leave any of it until morning; if there are leftovers, burn them in the fire.

“And here is how you are to eat it: Be fully dressed with your sandals on and your stick in your hand. Eat in a hurry; it’s the Passover to God.

“I will go through the land of Egypt on this night and strike down every firstborn in the land of Egypt, whether human or animal, and bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am God. The blood will serve as a sign on the houses where you live. When I see the blood I will pass over you—no disaster will touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.

“This will be a memorial day for you; you will celebrate it as a festival to God down through the generations, a fixed festival celebration to be observed always. You will eat un-raised bread (matzoth) for seven days: On the first day get rid of all yeast from your houses—anyone who eats anything with yeast from the first day to the seventh day will be cut off from Israel. The first and the seventh days are set aside as holy; do no work on those days. Only what you have to do for meals; each person can do that.

“Keep the Festival of Un-raised Bread! This marks the exact day I brought you out in force from the land of Egypt. Honor the day down through your generations, a fixed festival to be observed always. In the first month, beginning on the fourteenth day at evening until the twenty-first day at evening, you are to eat un-raised bread. For those seven days not a trace of yeast is to be found in your houses. Anyone, whether a visitor or a native of the land, who eats anything raised shall be cut off from the community of Israel. Don’t eat anything raised. Only matzoth.”

Moses assembled all the elders of Israel. He said, “Select a lamb for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the bowl of blood and smear it on the lintel and on the two doorposts. No one is to leave the house until morning. God will pass through to strike Egypt down. When he sees the blood on the lintel and the two doorposts, God will pass over the doorway; he won’t let the destroyer enter your house to strike you down with ruin.

“Keep this word. It’s the law for you and your children, forever. When you enter the land which God will give you as he promised, keep doing this. And when your children say to you, ‘Why are we doing this?’ tell them: ‘It’s the Passover-sacrifice to God who passed over the homes of the Israelites in Egypt when he hit Egypt with death but rescued us.'”

The people bowed and worshiped.

The Israelites then went and did what God had commanded Moses and Aaron. They did it all.

THE PASSOVER

At midnight God struck every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sits on his throne, right down to the firstborn of the prisoner locked up in jail, also the firstborn of the animals.

Pharaoh got up that night, he and all his servants and everyone else in Egypt—what wild wailing and lament in Egypt! There wasn’t a house in which someone wasn’t dead.

Pharaoh called in Moses and Aaron that very night and said, “Get out of here and be done with you—you and your Israelites! Go worship God on your own terms. And yes, take your sheep and cattle as you’ve insisted, but go. And bless me.”

The Egyptians couldn’t wait to get rid of them; they pushed them to hurry up, saying, “We’re all as good as dead.”

The people grabbed their bread dough before it had risen, bundled their bread bowls in their cloaks and threw them over their shoulders. The Israelites had already done what Moses had told them; they had asked the Egyptians for silver and gold things and clothing. God saw to it that the Egyptians liked the people and so readily gave them what they asked for. Oh yes! They picked those Egyptians clean.

The Israelites moved on from Rameses to Succoth, about 600,000 on foot, besides their dependents. There was also a crowd of riffraff tagging along, not to mention the large flocks and herds of livestock. They baked un-raised cakes with the bread dough they had brought out of Egypt; it hadn’t raised—they’d been rushed out of Egypt and hadn’t time to fix food for the journey.

This is the final lesson in this series.  Our next lesson will focus our attention on the final days of Jesus life, death and resurrection.  May God bless you as you continue to study His Word and moved into action as you apply your knowledge to help others see the light?  I remain your brother in CHRIST JESUS, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!
