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!

Forgiveness Friday (Chosen to Forgive)

I AM CHOSEN TO FORGIVE

As we enter into this 4th of July Holiday Weekend, let each of us enter with a Spirit of Forgiveness.  Hold no grudges, but release any and all unforgiving feelings and allow the power of God’s grace to let you live in His peace.

We are living in trouble times, and many evil spirits are surrounding us, trying to destroy us and tear down the Kingdom of God.  Hate mongers fill our space, even when we are sitting in the Lord’s House of prayer, praying, praising and worshiping His Holy name.

Although we are surrounded by evil and unforgiving spirits, “I AM CHOSEN TO FORGIVE,” live and let live, and being thankful for being a chosen vessel of God.

When you realize that the very people you considered to be friends will go to any level to cause you harm or pain you must keep a spirit of forgiveness even when you are alone.

It is when you are alone that you ask God to help you understand why things happen the way they do and don’t carry the burden of heaviness alone.

An unforgiving spirit can destroy your relationship, therefore; the best thing you can do is release those feelings and repeat to yourself, “I am choosing to forgive those who have stolen from me, broken my heart or caused any physical or emotional damage. Lord thank you for giving me the ability to release, and for peace and joy to journey on in faith. Fill my heart with love greater than I’ve ever had for all of my friends, you are my peace. Thank you.”

Thursday Scriptures of Encouragement (Enslaving Power of Sin)

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.

Wednesday Inspirational and Motivational Service (Power to heal)

MIND REALITY THOUGHTS

Your body is a perfect healing machine.  It has the ability to heal itself within an instance. It was given powers by God before we entered our Mother’s womb to control and regulate our physical bodies in times of stress and needs.  All you have to do is believe you are healed and your body goes to work doing what it was created to do.  [That is called the power of thought]. Why?  Simply because you are a perfect creation.  Made in the image of God himself.  Everything that God made was good and perfect in every way.  How do we know this, simple, because God said so. After each step in the creation process, God paused and said it was good.  Therefore, we are equipped with all the necessary tools to keep our bodies healthy and survive the stress that is put upon it, and if for some reason are other we become unhealthy, we were given the necessary tools to bring healing to our physical body.  Our brain is an amazing tool, back up with the power of the mind which provides us with a direct link to God.  Let us begin this study by watching this first video on how our BODIES ARE A PERFECT CREATED MACHINE.  This video is broken up in 5 parts, and each part builds on the last part. I encourage you to take the time and watch the entire video, it provides you with a truly amazing prospective of this great piece of equipment God has given to each of us.

 

 

We pray that this lesson today on thought and healing has been a blessing to you.  It is just another way in which God prepares our minds to receive the necessary information to keep our physical bodies in perfect healing condition.

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.

Monday’s Word of Encouragement (You can make it if you try)

FEAR NOT (By Pastor Davis)

FEAR NOT (By Pastor Davis)

YOU CAN MAKE IT IF YOU TRY

Trials and tribulations are truly a part of our daily lives.  How we deal with them in each moment of the day defines our strength and weakness, which helps us to overcome and continue to push forward, or knocks us down, makes us feel weak and sometimes in capable of getting up and moving forward.  The devil knows our every weakness and has no regard for our strengths.  He does not like strong soldiers on the battlefield, therefore, he will do everything in his powers to knock you out of the battle early in the fight.

But know this; “YOU CAN MAKE IT IF YOU TRY!”  The Lord has prepared you for moments such as this.  He has equipped you with all the necessary tools to fight this battle and win.  The most important thing we can encourage you to do this day as the devil throws everything in the kitchen sink at you is to: A.  Stay focus and keep your eyes of the prize, B. Be strong in your resolve, C. Be courageous in your forward movement D. Never give up and never give in, because; “YOU CAN MAKE IT IF YOU TRY!”

On this Monday Morning the Lord, your God wants you to be Encouraged in His Word, be not dismayed and Fear Not as His Words speaks volumes of truth to power in this powerful passage of scripture which says, “I pulled you in from all over the world, called you in from every dark corner of the earth, Telling you, ‘You’re my servant, serving on my side. I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’ Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.  I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you. (Isaiah 41:10 MSG)
