The One Who Is

  
Heavenly Father, today I’m grateful for all You are – the God who is, the God of the living, the Great I Am. Your character is unchanging. You are the epitome of perfect holiness and love. Because of who and all You are, I believe and trust in You. Your truthfulness is indisputable and Your power is established. Not just for the majestic works by Your hand but for the pure glory of Your nature – I worship You today. Amen

Who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on high? Psalm 113:5

I Thank You

img_7579

Sometimes we need to take the time and just say thank You. So often we tell God what we want and what our heart desires are and we forget to just take the time out and thank Him for all that He has done and continues to do. Could you imagine if the people who are around you just asked and begged for stuff from you and they never took the time out to be grateful and show you gratitude? How often do we do the Lord that way. As my husband always says,

“When you open your eyes in the morning, that is two reasons to thank the Lord.”                     -Pastor TD Glaster

Don’t forget to just say thank you and take the time not to ask the Lord for anything.

O’ Dear God,

I come before you tonight and just want to say thank you.

Lord I thank you for being the protector and sustainer of my life.

I thank you for covering me even when I did not know I needed covering.

For loving me when I did not love myself, I thank You.

For choosing me, O God, I thank You.

For transforming me, I thank You.

For imparting the Holy Spirit upon me, I thank You.

For seeing past my faults, I thank You.

For placing a ministry in me to be used for Your Glory, I thank You, Lord.

For being my Rock, O God I thank You.

For giving me a safe place to hide, I thank You.

For filling me up, God, I thank You.

For Your overflow, thank You.

For gifting me with life, Dear Lord, I thank You.

For giving me peace, I just wanna say thank You.

For touching every seed you have placed in me, Jesus, I thank You.

For giving me the strength to carry on when I did not see a way, Lord I thank You.

For fulfilling my needs, I thank You.

For Your chastisement Lord, I thank You.

For blessing me the way that You do, O God, You don’t have to do the things you do, but I still say Thank you.

For holding me in my lonely nights, I say thank You.

You are the Lily of the Valley, The Rose of Sharon, a Rock in a weary Land, The protector, the Keeper and sustainer of Life and for that I just thank You.

You are the Author and the Finisher of ALL things and God I thank you for writing my life and deciding how it shall go.

Lord, thank You for Your infinite wisdom, love, grace and mercy.

Lord, I thank You for giving Your son so that I might be set free.

For your forgiveness, Lord I thank You.

Lord, You are my all and all and I just thank You for what you are doing and what you are going to do in my life.

In Jesus Holy name….AMEN!

The Lukewarm Christian

I sat in Church and listened to the preached word as my Pastor (Kelvin Davis) spoke from Revelation 3:14-22. As the scripture was read and the words lukewarm came out of the Pastors mouth, lukewarm just continued to echo in my mind and then it began to pull at my heart. Lukewarm is not the life that I want to live.

Revelation 3:14-22 speaks about not being lukewarm but being hot or cold. When you are a lukewarm Christian you do not know where you stand in Christ. You are trying to live an in-between lifestyle. There are no in-between spaces or in-between places. You cannot be stuck in-between Heaven or Hell. Just for a minute could you imagine if God allowed you to be stuck between Heaven and Hell. You being there suspended not belonging any where. Wondering what God thought of you and the decisions you have made in your life? Revelation 3:16 tells us what God thinks, He says He will spit you out of His mouth for being lukewarm. To be spit out means that He wants nothing to do with you because you are distasteful to Him. You cannot follow the Lord only half-way. You must be all in or not in at all. Being lukewarm, means you do not know that you are living a distasteful life to God, you don’t know that you are naked. You do not have any shame for anything that you do because you do not know nothing. It is better to know that you are naked so you can seek being clothed.

You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons too. 1 Corinthians 10:21

You cannot have God when you want Him and then do what you want when you get ready. No, we are not perfect and for that we must seek Christ daily and ask for forgiveness when we make flesh decisions. We are to purchase white garments of righteousness from the Lord. We are to walk in the Spirit so that we may see in the spirit. None of our possessions will get us to the Kingdom, no matter how much money we have.

Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20

I would rather be on fire for the Lord, knowing who I am and whose I am. I do not want to be unpleasing and distasteful to the Lord. When the Lord knocks I want to hear Him knocking and I want to sit and dine with Him. Oh how sweet it is to dine with the Lord. To know that He chose to knock on the door of my heart and He wants to dwell within my spirit and He wants to feed me the wisdom of who He is. Lukewarm is not the life I want and I desire to be so refined that in my pureness I reflect Christ.

To be the reflection of Christ is so beautiful. Allow God to come in. He is knocking and He wants all of you. He wants to sit down with you and show you a life that only you can have with Him. He wants to ease the pain of your life and He wants to set you free from being miserable and poor in spirit. Won’t you open the door and let Him come in?

“Shake The Dust Off”

Shake yourself from the dust, arise; sit down O Jerusalem!

“Shake The Dust Off”

Often times we go through things in our life and it is as if the dust has been layered and layered on and now it is time for you to shake the dust of your past off of you.

 

God The Director

  
Often times we have our own plans of what we plan to do with our life and then ask God to bless our plan. What if your plan is not God’s plan for your life? What if the direction you are going is not where God intended you to go? We wonder sometimes why our plan is not working and we’re quick to say it is the devil but it just may be God blocking you from what’s not for you and saving you from pain that He doesn’t want you to endure.

So, instead of having your own plan, ask God what is His plan for your life and then let Him direct your path. His plans are always more sweeter than ours.

Nothing Without Love

 
“If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.”
You can have a ministry and you can do all the right things and say all the right words and help all the right people but if you do not have love and none of it is done out of love, then all that has been done has been done for nothing. 
Speak out of love, Minister out of love, Heal out of love, Testify out of love, Help out of love, Pray out of love, do ALL THINGS OUT OF LOVE.

You Are Made New

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.”2 Corinthians 5:17 HCSB

  
When you have a genuine relationship with Christ, He lives in you and you have become new. When you wake up daily and you choose Christ, He has given you a new day with new decision and He has also made you new today. You don’t have to hang on to your yesterday. You don’t have to be bound to who you were in your past. Your past is the old you, yesterday is an old day, today you have been renewed. Your eyes will see new things today, you will feel new things today, you will hear new things today, your heart will be touched for the first time today, and your decisions today are new. So, in all that you do allow God to show you the new you today as you walk in Him. Yesterday’s worries are not today’s.
