SPEAK BOLDLY!



I speak BOLDLY!

The Word of God says:  "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."  Check this out! The words that we speak become a lamp for our feet, and a light to our path.  That is why it is so important to pay attention to the words we are saying.  God said and things started to take a direction. That is why JESUS is the living WORD. He is taking this world in the direction all the way back to GOD.  Now listen, for me personally, the devil had been trying to keep me (and maybe others who are reading this blog now) who has been called powerfully by God himself from speaking, and if he can't keep us from speaking, then he will try to stop us from speaking BOLDLY!  We are the children of God.  We are to speak salt and speak light and speak life boldly into this world!  God's word says: Let us therefore come boldly for our help! (Hebrews 4:16) We approach  boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Need direction?  I understand.  I wondered why I felt weak in the area of direction in my life and now I understand.  Amen. We need to speak what God has spoken to us in his word OUT LOUD and BOLDLY with all our heart and with all our souls and with all our strength and with all our mind.  Let us start by saying, in Christ we will be a tremendous blessing unto this world.  Amen!  God said,

What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. (Matthew 10:27) and even more so "What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs." (Luke 12:3)  Don't be afraid to speak! Don't hold back!  To God be all the glory!  He is worthy! He is worthy!  Praise God! (I'm getting excited about this!)


Listen, God's word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.  But if we don't turn on that lamp how will the world see that lamp?  What use is lamp in our lives if you don't turn it on?  There's also a intensity lever.  Some of us need to crank up that lamp of God in our lives a few more notches.  It works, but if we don't apply it or use it in our lives, don't think it's going to work for you by osmosis.  Also the word is the light unto our path, but, again, if we don't turn on that light in your lives let's not expect it to work for us!  Start by speaking, our words point us into the direction which we will take.  Lord, touch our mouths and our tongues!  My friends, don't just speak, but SPEAK BOLDLY!

Jesus was teaching his disciples and he taught there about asking God, He said,
 “Suppose one of you has a friend. Suppose you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, let me borrow three loaves of bread. 6 A friend of mine on a trip has dropped in on me, and I don’t have anything to serve him.’ 7 Your friend might answer you from inside his house, ‘Don’t bother me! The door is already locked, and my children are in bed. I can’t get up to give you anything.’ 8 I can guarantee that although he doesn’t want to get up to give you anything, he will get up and give you whatever you need because he is your friend and because you were so bold." (Luke 11:5-8)



 "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us."  1 John 5:14


Like David, you will have the best of the BEST to catapult you to the destiny God has for you! Amen! Same for me I say!  God wins!  Trust in God and know that God is for you! He will always be there for you!



If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.

My Confidence is in Believing Christ.



Learn to let go when you want to change people or change yourself.  First of all, that is far from who we are meant to be.  We were made to accept Christ and then to accept ourselves the way God accepts Christ because Christ lives in us.  Amen.  We are to accept ourselves just the way we are and let God love on us, as a result, then we will be changed.  Amen.   So let the desire to change inside of you to die and as a result you will be changed :)  Amen.  Jesus said, "Unless a seed die, it stands alone, but if it dies it produces many many seeds." John 12:24

I am the object of my God's love and compassion. I am not to earn His perfect love and acceptance of me.  I am the object of His mercy and grace.  For example, my wife is not put here to do things that earn my love. No! She is the object of my love.  She is the one I love, and I am the one she loves.  We are the object of each other's love. In other words, I pour out my love on her, and God longs to do the same to and for us.  We must empty of our hands of the worthless things that are not true blessings, that is our efforts and the things we are trying striving and straining in our own efforts and stress to do to be made perfect in God's sight and rejecting his grace as a result; rather we need to instead accept his grace and thank Him and joyfully receive His love. How?  catch it the moment you realize you are doing it in your mind and confess, "God, I am feeling this way, God take my concern."  And God promises that he will carry our sorrows and He will do it.  It is our job to completely let it go.  It is also our job to completely deplete it of it's power.  Concentrating on the problem will only increase it's power so we give it no more to eat in our mind and on our time's watch.  Instead we look to focus on and stay in God's promises and word.  The more we focus on God's promises the more we are giving God room to work powerfully in our lives.  He is faithful to keep us in His perfect peace.

Today, I have caught insecurity by the legs and he is caught! I was proud of being insecure but now I am not and I believe God for being bold and confident and fearless in Christ alone!   My confidence is in Believing Christ.

New are we. We are new in Christ and it's different for everybody!  We are all uniquely made new! Amen!


If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible.

Celebrate Your Wife MORE



After watching Elevation Churches message this past Sunday, I was reminded of an incredible lesson.

Celebrate your wife more!  I am the leader.  I am responsible.  I am responsible for the condition and spirit of my wife in this area.  Amen.  If she is not feeling confident in her role as a wife and mother that is because I am not celebrating her enough.  It's very good that I do not criticize my wife. yay yay, but Are you celebrating who she is and what she has been doing and what she is doing now?  Not with money, but with  your words and your smile, and your taking time literally just to say, "thank you"? As a leader you have to do these things!  You have to learn how to encourage your team, stop just moving and moving and moving without celebrating!  Don't depend on her to do these things.   You are the leader!  You have to celebrate you wife and what she is doing and as been doing!  Celebrate her more than you correct her because if you are doing these things you will not do these things for  your daughter either and she will have low self esteem in the area of achievement if you do not, so pray and then celebrate.  Intentionally celebrate  your wife. Discuss with each other how to celebrate your baby together. Make a united effort to celebrate her so one person can not take the credit more than the other. But you need to make the celebrations big and/or small for your spouse.  Model that for your family!  Celebrate her small achievements.  Lord, I need your help for this one.  The joy of the Lord is our strength.  Help your family find the joy in their strengths in spite of their weaknesses because God has given them strength for today!  Celebrate!


She is a powerful mother


When I look at my daughter, I'm always looking for what's the next cute faces she will make, what's the next move with her leg or with her foot or with her hands and arms and I'm so amazed at everything!  I need to be looking for the next awesome thing my wife makes and does, what's the next awesome thing that my fellow work mates will do, what's the next awesome accomplishments my friends (not my competition, but my friends) will make and celebrate them. Amen! Lord, come in this place in my heart and fix it for your glory. Amen.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible.

Meat and Potatoes make Strong Christians



Dessert is Encouragement.  Encouragement is good, but too much of it without meat and potatoes can't make you as strong and balanced. The meat and the potatoes of walking in Christ is godly Correction.  Godly correction is given to those who are able and if you  have invited Christ in your life, Jesus Christ, God in flesh, who died and rose again, lives in you, that means God is able and God lives in you!   The result of this kind of correction is good fruit.  Godly medicine can often be rebuke, but also love. : )   Discipline are often the vegetables of life.  Let God feed you a good and healthy meal to make you stronger this week.

...the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

Galatians 5:22-23

Crushed juuuust enough! :)



Do you know why we go through hardships?  Do you know way we are crushed?  First, let me start with this:  do you know why Jesus loves you so much?  It's because you are his child and you were made in his image. He loves you so much! When we are crushed it brings out all the of things that we depend on in our hearts, all of the best of the we've depended on in us, the things that we had been depending on and trying to hold in.  Jesus is the only thing that matters and once we accepted Christ, Jesus came into our hearts but there were other things there when He arrived in our hearts and now he is getting all those things out of us.  So here's the thing:  We need crushing.  We need to have those other things in our lives that we had grown used to, those things we depended on in our hearts by habit to for our lives to be crushed so we can only solo depend on Jesus.  Jesus is the stronger man who we invited inside our home and now he is slowly moving all those things that had us held back.  You can speed up the process by yielding, submitting, humbling yourself, surrendering, giving up your will, planting  yourself in the environments that germinate growth, place yourself in environment that shakes up the Holy Spirit and starves your fleshful desires.  The result is this:  All that is about me, all my attributes, all my skills, all the things I depended on for credit in my life need to be placed aside so that Jesus can be THE ONLY THING that I depend on for merit, for credit for all that ever really matters, not my looks, not my abilities, my writing skills, my charm, my social skills, NO church!  Jesus is all we need.  Tell that to your heart!  tell that to your actions every day, ask God to search your heart and find all the things that we depend on besides Jesus and please, Lord, crush them!  Amen.

Pray this prayer:  "Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting". (Psalm 139:23-24) Amen.

God bless your day today!

Obedience is a Discipline



Obedience is a muscle.  And leadership is a pure attitude about yourself, the person who God made.

I used to say to myself, "Well, if I knew what God wanted, then I could practice obedience," I was upset because God would not reveal to me the "dream" that I need to pursue, so I would say, "God, if you would show me what I should do with my life, then I would obey you!"  but I realize it was the lack of regard to his laws that he has already established that cause delay of all of my dreams.  For example, being in debt delays that freedom we can have to open up other opportunities, relationships, and time to accomplish the dreams that God has placed in my heart.   The truth is God has given enough structure to me to daily practice plenty obedience. Obeying the law of the land is one example.  Obeying the Ten Commandments is also an example.  Most of all to love God and love others is the greatest form of obedience that I need to practice daily and grow and grow in this area.  My dream is a privilege. Great stewardship, not luck or even great passion, is what will open up the dream..  I forget that my dreams accomplished without first practicing obedience to God, loving God and loving others doesn't fly and is not worth the pursuit.  Obedience to God creates true rich opportunities to freely serve Him in all and every way.

God, help me to serve you by first obeying your laws and until then, help me to pause my "dreams" and trust that it will all happen in your time.  Help me to exercise my obedience to you in every way with diligence and not laziness.  Give me a productive faithful heart to obey your laws and faithfully purse your grace in Jesus Christ.


If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21.

Growing Pains 5-15-2015


We have all been or felt mistreated.  Here's what I remembered:

I have mistreated so many people who tried to help me.  It was my pride.  You may say: Now I'm trying to help someone and feeling very disrespected and mistreated. I realized this: I need to remember that about 10 years ago, I did the same thing.  I am no better than those who are mistreating me.  God is showing me how prideful I was and who I thought I was, but God is showing me now through my own eyes today what I really looked like back then.   I thought I was perfect but I was in many ways out of shape, immature, and getting on people's nerves..but I was growing and many people needed patience for me. Now I need to learn to drink this cup today because I so easily forced others to drink my cup years ago, now I need to drink what I had also so easily given to others.  Lord, help me to take it and grow through it.  Help me to cry out to you for help and for strength to be stronger.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21.

You For You Sake!



 "You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands".  Psalm 16:5 GNT

God is the greatest treasure.  Our generation has been attacked and I use the word attacked because of the aggression of distraction from the enemy in media in commercials, in options and especially in success!  I think no tool in our age has never been so distracting as results and success.  I was a chaser after these two things that I worshiped it with all my heart until yesterday when I heard a message from John Bevere about trembling before the word of God.  I realized that I was not after God for God but for the results.  Listen, some people can do that and that's fine, but as for me, I can't fool anybody.  I repented before God and now I humbly ask for  you to check your heart.  Are you going after things for what it will do for  you? Or are you pursuing God because He is God and He loves you and wants to be with you?  I am asking God to transform the way I think about everything I am doing.  I am asking God to search all my ways and redefine me and refine me.  I want to be found in Him.  I want to be found in Jesus Christ and that's all, no exceptions! I want to be found in obedience.  Let's pray for one another to be found in obedient believing in Jesus.



Pray this prayer with me:

 "You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands. 6 How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are! 7 I praise the Lord, because he guides me, and in the night my conscience warns me. 8 I am always aware of the Lord's presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me. 9 And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure, 10 because you protect me from the power of death. I have served you faithfully, and you will not abandon me to the world of the dead. 11 You will show me the path that leads to life; your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever." Psalm 16:5-11 GNT

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21.

Lord (Prayer today) 5-11-2015



Lord, am I gifted in praise and worship and in fasting and prayer.
Lord,  you please direct me in my gifts.   You direct, I will follow, I will believe  you.

Father, is this desire to write a book from you?  Is this desire to start on this book now (meaning as soon as possible put it in your daily schedule) from you?  Is this desire for realestate from you?  I will lay them down.  Father, thank you.


NO!!!! I hear from the Lord, and I do not desire modelling, I do not desire famous and all this crap!  I do not desire that!  It would ruin my ministry!  I will not be a realestate agent nor a famous author on my terms!  I will focus on one thing: My Phd.  THAT IS IT!

I WILL focus on one practical thing the LORD wants me to do! I will be president.

I Will Extol the name of my God



I will extol the name of my God just as the ones of our time extol their gods of cars, planes, houses, and creatures my God has made.  I know well that I will be judged by other people of my generation for my extolling of this name that I hail is above all other names, but I will gladly take the judgement of fools to be liberated from the judgement of Almighty God because of my hope in Jesus.

My One Goal and Prayer Right Now is Clarity



In order to be successful in a life of mission, in Christ, it takes practical focus.  I need to know what I am put on this planet to do and do it.  That means that there are billions of things I need NOT to be focused on. I need to make a clear picture, or better yet, submit to God's clear picture for me and my life all the days of my life no matter what!  This is my goal and my mission.  Pray for me.  Let's pray for each other to have this clarity and this clear sense of focus so that we can stay centered on the right goal for our lives.  Apostle Paul talked about his goal.  He says in Philippians 3:10-11:

"10 [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [JESUS] [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]
11 That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].

Let's have a focus like THAT!  I pray for you that you and me may have the kind of painful focus on one thing that will image this world for God's kingdom and power for life changing in Christ's grace all over the world.  God bless you today!


If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21.

God, Enlarge my Heart!



Sooner than you can possibly hopeful, dream of or imagine!  Get those words deep inside!  Jesus, come sooner than we can possible hopeful, dream of or imagine!  The Bible says that seven years felt like days to Jacob because of his love for Rachel.  I know that the coming of Jesus Christ will come sooner than we could possibly hope for, dream of, or imagine because of our love for Jesus!  Praise Him today!  Praise him always!

Everything you have ever hoped for, dreamed up, or imagined to positively accrue in your life is going to happen sooner than  you could ever of dreamed!

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us" Ephesians 3:20  dream dream dream on!

Dear God,

Enlarge my heart!  I am expecting to see everywhere everyday the signs the wonders and miracles you are giving to your precious beloved children!  Enlarge my heart for a fallen world who is praying, saying "come, help us!"

I want to be a godly Iron Man


I heard Beth Moore (check her out! ) say once that she prayed, "Lord, let the word of God be in me like iron fused in to my bones." and I thought that was so beautiful to say, "I want the word of God to be in the very fabrics of my being".  Let us pray like that!  That's the kind of Iron Man like want to be!

Another part of being an Iron man in biblical terms is in the words Apostle Paul, which mentions, "be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies]," Romans 6:10-11.  

God's words continues... "that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.
18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).


Let us put on the full armor of God my brothers and sisters; let us grow in confidence in faith to forgive, to live passionately in purity, and in unity together, having each other's backs and supporting one another. God bless you today as you live out being a true Iron Man and Woman of God.
