Crisis

Then the Spirit of the LORD came on Jahaziel son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite and descendant of Asaph, as he stood in the assembly. 
 He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 
 Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. 
You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’ ” 

Jehoshaphat bowed down with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the LORD                                                           2 Chronicles 20:14-18
Today  I am surrounded by a plethora of circumstances and challenges which are overwhelming me. Today I am in a crisis.  There is a sense of powerlessness and an inability to reason with these challenges. There is an amount of insecurity and fear that is present with me today.  I do not know what to do. I do not know anyone who can help me. Today I understand and know that God allows these circumstances and crisis so that he can demonstrate that he alone is God. These situations allow me to know the living God. It is in this experience that God will allow me the opportunity to seek His face and His face alone. It is Him alone that can overwhelm the forces that are challenging me. Today I understand and know that although my feelings and fear are present they can never override my faith. I know Lord that you have the final word and say concerning these challenges. You, Lord, are ruler over Heaven and Earth. You are sovereign and you will rule forever and ever. Today I present it all to you because the battle is not mine it is your Lord.  Hallejuah !!Amen.

Light

 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 
 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 
 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 
 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:17 - 21
What a blessing to wake up on this rainy October day not condemned by the evil of this world but by faith risen into the marvellous light of our Lord Jesus the Christ. Today lets encourage a life by being exposed to the light in our attempts to be like Christ. To all of us who believe let's entertain the notion that our actions will determine our outcomes based on our assurance of the love of God through the awesome sacrifice of our Lord Jesus the Christ.  Today come into the light that by faith so that our deeds will expose the darkness and lead others into the marvellous light. Scripture (1 Peter 2:9) encourages us to come out of the darkness and into his wonderful light. Amen

Live


This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 

 and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Deuteronomy 30:19,20



Hallelujah Today this September 23, 2017, I have made a conscious and prayerful decision to choose life according to the word of God.  Throughout the months and years while contributing to this blog and my life it is when I choose the LORD my testimony results in living. Recently there have been many challenges concerning the"Living " portion of my existence but until I choose the Lord as my life my conclusions result in death instead of life. There is no mystery in the passage of scripture I choose as the foundation of this piece of writing. It reminds us that when we choose to live we choose the LORD.  No questions asked. The writer of Psalm 34 presents us with a challenge which is to taste and see that the Lord is good. In that challenge, he also reminds us that we are blessed when we take refuge in Him while those of us who fear Him lack nothing. (Psalm 34:8,9). It when our holiness (being set apart)  provides us with the atmosphere to truly live life according to the will of God and not the life the god of this world chooses for us. Every day my prayer is to live a life according to the will of the Father and not the choice of men period. Amen

Mourn

 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. ..........Matthew 5:4 
 Everyday we all mourn the many challenges presented to us on a daily basis. Mourning doesn't always mean the dead. You can mourn the circumstance of your life which come in many forms. Relationships usually account for many moments of mourning  for instance break ups, divorces,domestic violence, employment incidences and most of all the unexpected momements when those individuals who were apart of you life and no longer here.
For those of us who are of the Christian faith comfort comes by way of God the father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit.When those challenges come by virtue of our daily lives fall on your knees and encounter the blessing afforded to us by a tri un God who is available at all times. Amen

The Power




Back in 2002 I took a picture of the horses coming around the last turn heading for home at the Del Mar racetrack near San Diego ,California. While watching the Kentucky I was reminded of the power, speed and beauty associated with one of God's beautiful creatures the horse and His greatest man.

Love

Love suffers long and is kind: love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
does not rejoice in iniquity,but rejoices in truth;
bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
I Corinthians 13:4-7

As we witnessed the peaceful transfer of power on Jan 20 we also witnessed the end of a love walk by a President who centered his administration around the love of country. The issues we face as a country manifest themselves in the foundation of division which is championed by a administration who holds this nations greatness in contempt.To dismiss the greatness of the American people who during the Obama administration have done many great things is appalling. The evil that is being extrapolated from the Trump Administration is apparent with the people he has surrounded himself with. His idea of making America great again is born out of the miss representation and the lie of America which was represented in the early years of his life. Love moves us forward. Hate sends us back. My prayer is that love will endure. Amen.

Binding the Strong Man

Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand?  And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strongman? Then he can rob his house.
Matthew 12:25-29
Good Morning. What a beautiful and glorius day the Lord has prepared for us. During my morning meditation I found myself meditating on the scripture from Matthew 12:25. The challenges I am facing this morning normally rest on the breath of my experience  which as a result doesn't accomplish much because I am void of the solution. Today through my meditation those challenges are filtered through a different light.  That light is the Kingdom of God which has come upon me.
Here is an illustration of this living word.  In the passage of scripture out of Matthew 25  it provides me with a solution to bind the strong man.  To reference the term strong man it simply is a way of saying the issues that bind you and hold you down from receiving your best. Those issues can  include your finances, relationships, friendships, employment and so on.  Whatever situation you find yourself in that you can’t see your way clear of. Prayer is the first step in this process because you are seeking the kingdom of heaven and the Spirit of God  to bind up the strong man and allow you entrance to retrieve those things he has taken from you. The principles of the Spirit of God allows you to bear its fruit and provides you with access to victory over the strong man. In Galatians chapter 5 starting at verse 22. It says; But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, patience, kindness,  goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control. It goes on to indicate that against such things there is no law. Those of us who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
What has become essential for me as a believer and a man being transformed into the image of the risen Christ is the ability to pray and seek the kingdom of God concerning every area of my life. To break off those chains that bind me from the glory of God.  To live out the heaven here on earth which God has promised.  Satan is real and he will try bind you in every area of your life. Allow yourself be available as a witness  to the awesome act of love God presented to us through His only begotten son our Lord Jesus the Christ. Amen.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.  Matthew 16:19

The Supremacy of Chirst


Worship

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all of creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross
Colossians 1:15-20

As we continue to move through our lives when we look to the heavens and acknowledge the supremacy of Jesus Christ peace is at hand. Imagine the image that the apostle Paul paints of the supremacy of Christ  which centers on the great love God produces at the cross with His only begotten. Given to us that we may reconcile our evil with God and acknowledge the eternal gift presented to each one of us. The beauty of a creation that removes our sin to be remembered no more is without words. It can only be acknowledge in worship and praise to our King. Visit that place in your soul which provides the conduit necessary to communicate that eternal love to our King. Today find that place and worship in spirit and truth.  Find moments in your day that represent and produce His unconditional love and use it as a source for the peace that surpasses all of your understanding. Remember everything that was created was for Him and by Him. Amen

Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
Psalm 99:5

Worship is available as a print

Rejoice

  The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take a great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing."  Zephaniah 3:17      

  Good morning!! what a wonderful and beautiful day the Lord has blessed us with. The spirit of the Lord moved me today to the scripture from the prophet Zephaniah chapter 3 verse 17. It begins by stating that the Lord God is with you and He is the Mighty Warrior who saves. Just in that statement alone my faith should be encouraged enough to know that whatever challenge I face today the Lord God the Mighty Warrior is here to fight on my behalf. I bless God today that where ever I end up he has already won the battle I'm facing with the death, burial and resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. Now matter what it is I have already won. How wonderful it is to know that the Lord King of Israel delights in us. His love will no longer rebuke us and He rejoices over us with singing. Amen.

High And Lifted Up

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

                                                                                Isaiah 6:1-8

My goal for this image is to incite the viewer to locate an image in your environment which testifies to the glory of the Lord High and lifted up. This image is a take on the Salvador Dali image the Christ of Saint John. While viewing the Dali piece I found myself relating to the image in the book of Isaiah reading from the scripture in chapter 6 starting at verse 1. It reads : In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
As illustrated in this passage of scripture I believe that in our everyday life if we seek and remove all of the noise we can see the person and presence of Jesus high and lifted up in our homes, communities, nation and world. And as a result we are purged of the issues of this world and ready to be sent by the Lord for His witness. Amen

Hidden

 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.                                                                                                        Isaiah 59:1-4
Good Morning. What a beautiful day the Lord has made. This morning the spirit of the Lord has championed me to a place which is valid in the human spirit. Our inability to see and receive from the throne and Kingdom of Heaven where God reigns. The validity comes as we witness the events that surround us every day in our communities and around the world. In the moments when we decide and choose what is good and what is evil. To some the choice is not so simple as good or evil. Most of us believe that evil does not exist within ourselves. That the word evil is to extreme as a word to describe our separation from God. All of us at one time or another throughout our days and lives find that separation to be evident.  The prophet Isaiah presents us with the real truth in Isaiah 59 starting in the first verse. Imagine the moments of your  day and life where that passage of scripture lives. For me there are many moments when it is present. But today I am grateful for the grace of God and the mercy of the Lord Jesus the Christ  which allows me every day to remove that darkness in my spirit so that Gods  ability for me to see and hear from heaven is available. Lets not get it twisted this is a daily and sometimes hourly act which is necessary to live a life free and able to present the glory of God in those places we frequent and the other lives we interact with.  Without that ability to interact with our God through our Lord Jesus the Christ we live in a dark world which is void of light and full of darkness. Amen

And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.                                                                             Genesis 6:3

Our Refuge


He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.  Psalm 91

Good morning. On this beautiful Wednesday morning November18, 2015 the spirit of God has moved me to champion his power through His word. Today I arise in the glory of God concerning all of His Humanity.  Stand firm and not lose hope in His overwhelming love which provides us victory over the terror that flies by night or the pestilence that walks in darkness nor the destruction that lays waste at noonday. The terror that has enveloped our communities and world has no power over the love, grace and mercy of our God and King the Lord Jesus the Christ.Today let’s summon the power(faith) that raised the Christ from the grave and see the reward of the wicked. Let’s find that posture on our knees so that no evil will befall us. Continue to say the Lord is your refuge and fortress. In Him this day I will trust. Send Judah(praise) today .Amen

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. John 3:16-20
