She is a woman who fears the Lord



About my wife:

She is a woman who fears the Lord.  She is a woman of strength.  She is a woman who does not depend on her own strength.  She is a woman who brings value to everything she does and everything she sees around her and people notice it.  Her husband, if he's no fool, will look at her and say, "Wow, I'm so blessed."  Her grace brings Him God's favor every day.  She's the hardest worker he knows and has wisdom in God's grace.  She brings quality food and doesn't settle for the cheap stuff.  While it's still dark out she is feeding our baby, providing food for our family.  Wow, thank you, God. Sisters look up to her.  She is interested in investments; she is wise and trusts her husband with her money.  She is constantly increasing her family.  Detail is her specialty.   She cares about helping others, her husband does not discourage her from doing so and God blesses her.   Her laugh is clothed with strength and dignity. Amen.  The fear of the Lord is her crown of honor.  Praises are at her front door because of the fear, respect, and honor of the Lord in her bosom.  The children see it and call her so blessed.  I do too.  God, thank you for your many blessings and for such a lovely wife.  In Jesus' name. 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. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.

INCREASE THE HONOR AND RESPECT

Increase the Honor and Respect


God is saying today to increase the respect and honor.  We might think, "Oh, I'm okay at giving God honor and respect today; I'll just get by with that!" But that's not enough!  We have to realize that for each day that we are standing still and not respecting God more than yesterday, we are actually moving backwards.  No, we push forward the respect, we do something that we haven't done yesterday.  Today start or start over with something small like thanking God for your health, your eyes to see this message, for your day, for the people around you, get passionate about it! Thank Him for your arms and lets, your peace of mind.  Thank God today in a new small way.




Do this with the people you are around.  Think of some way to honor them deliberately.  Do not wait until they "deserve" to receive your respect and honor.   Think of something new and fresh that you can do.  It can be small or big but let it be obvious that you thank God for them.  This is in my spirit very much: remember that everyday that you are not moving forward, you are actually moving backwards in showing respect, honor, love.  Let's be alert and active each day. God bless you today.

Thank you God that mercies are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:23)

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.

Speaking with God YES God of the UNIVERSE WHO CREATED ALL THINGS!!




I said,

"I just want to know if there anything I missed that I needed to do."

God said,

"You only been doing too much.  You need to do a little less."  Stop doing so much.

I said,

"What is it you want me to do?"

God said,

"Be bold. Be brave.  Be courageous. Be confident in God."  "Just be bold in everything you do.  I know how to find you.  I know how to point you to where you have to go.  I own the schedule, your schedule.  So rest.  I'll tell you when you're up!  And Trust me.  No one will be able to stop you."

I said,

"God, what gifts do you want me to use in my life?"

God said,

"Your gifts are your bravery, your courage, your confidence, your grace, your love (from me),..."

"I put crazy CRAZY good courage and confidence within you and you are going ballistic because you are saying 'Just aim and I'll fire!" but I am building you up for a specific time (when I say). Trust me.  I know what I am doing.  I will bless you while you wait for me.  By the way, thank you for waiting on me.  It will be worth every moment.  But again, patience, kindness, peace, courage, bravery, confidence, boldness and strength in and only in me.  I love most of all about you your quiet courage and confidence in me."

"We trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe."  1 Timothy 4:10

The Righteous Place God First in Everything


The righteous don't ask, "But how can I put God first."  They simply decide to put God first in everything and through the Lord Jesus Christ.   They face persecution as they ought to.  They love God and stand firm in the Lord.  They trust in the Lord with all of their hearts.  They trust in the Lord and place their trust in Him.  They obey and learn obedience as students of obedience to the Lord.   They marvel at the Lord and long for Him in waiting.  They worship the Lord and take His ways seriously.  They are as solid as a rock because of Him in whom they trust.  The "wicked" hate the righteous because they stand against all the wicked's schemes.  The righteous can stand firm and for that the wicked hate them.  "The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" (Psalm 118:6)  Again, "So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:6) ..in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me? (Psalm 56:11)  God first before all things.  Let us follow the example, "In the beginning, God.."   Let everything we start with start with God by our choices and decisions every day of our lives.  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.

Seek the Kingdom Today :)


I left for a walk and realized something.



Give me today my daily bread.  The Bible doesn't ask us to pray, "Give us tomorrow" but "Give us today"  Give us today our daily bread, my daily tasks, (thank you for giving to us today, God!) what I have for today give to me.  If I am trying too hard to know everything for my future it may mean that we are trying to give ourselves tomorrow.  But the Bible says, "Seek first His Kingdom and everything else will be given to you."  (See Mathew 6:33)  We try and try and try to give to ourselves not realizing that we were never made to give things to ourselves the things that only God can give us. So where is our desire supposed to be and supposed to stay?  That is correct:  His Kingdom and His Righteousness.  That is what we were made for.  Pray to God and ask Him to teach you how to seek His Kingdom and His righteousness.  Do you know Jesus?  Do you want to know Jesus today?  Don't be concerned about what job you will have, what car you will drive, what career choice you need to have.  Instead get in line with God and encourage others to do so as well because we were all made for knowing and pursuing God.  Let's pray for this today.  We are made to seek His kingdom.  We flourish when we seek his kingdom and make the "other things" none of our business except to thank God for and to ask God would use those things to further His kingdom even more.  God wants to use what you have not the things you don't have because God doesn't want to use what we don't have, but what we have to do a miracle for His kingdom (see Matthew 14:13-21) so we can have a testimony that will further His kingdom.  

You know what gives me confidence? Knowing God.  Do you think about what you need to do to meet the right people and go to the right places?  In God there is no need of either because God will make people like you and God will bring you to the right places.  Trust God and get to know Him first.  Let ALL your confidence come from not the right blog, the right social web site, the right church with the coolest people, or the right job and let your confidence only come from God and knowing Him.  The other stuff should be worth dung in comparison to knowing Christ. Say, "My confidence comes from knowing God 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.

We will give unconditionally : )




Last week my wife gave me a super awesome shake filled with all kinds of vitamins and minerals.  This is love : )

But here's something I thought about.   Something I thought about after receiving her wonderful gift.  She gives in the right way.  We all need to not just give, but give in a certain way.  We need to give not only with a good happy attitude, but give unconditionally.  Giving has really nothing to do with the article you are giving but in the spirit you give it.  Next time you give to someone, pray over what you are giving; pray for the person while you are preparing the present.  Pray that the Spirit of God bless that person every time they see or use that gift.  Then when you pray, note this: it only counts when you give unconditionally. What do I mean?  I mean when we give in the right spirit (of grace, obedience, etc), as we give having no complaints in mind, nor do we have any thoughts of, "Well, he/she better like this gift, I've worked so hard for this, if she doesn't like this then..." then our giving is very blessed.  The other is NOT the way we give and if we do give like that REMEMBER THIS:  that is NOT giving in any positive sense.  It's not the item we give but thoughts about the person we are giving to t hem.  We would be better off not to give it at all because without the spirit, the action is heavy and a burden.

Have you ever eaten empty calories before?  How did you feel after that?  I mean, not only do we fill like it was a waste of time and experience, but now we have to expend energy for something not even worth consuming, it's the same with a gift given with the wrong attitude or spirit.

Instead, let's practice giving while we give.  : )  Meaning let's practice not just the transaction but the whole heart; the complete action and the spirit of (and the why to) our giving.  Soak that in! Think of this: Why are we giving to this person?  What have they done for us?  If we want we can also think: What has God done for us?  How is it a blessing to give?  How am I thankful for this person?  How am I thankful to God for giving so much to me?  Let's think about that on purpose, deliberately while we are giving, our gift will mean so much more.  Let's think of this while we are cooking for that person, our food will taste so much better!  As we are preparing by wrapping the present, etc.

I'm going to mention this because I had a meeting the day I wrote this:  When you are in a room with other people, don't just think about the fact that you are there, what do you look like or how do you look in front of them, allow me to remind you to think about them and pray silently for them while you are there and understand that you are giving  your time for them on purpose.  You are giving, I mean really giving to them all of you, as you spend your time for them as you stand in front of them.  Stay aware and prayerful and thankful for the people that are around you and (pray for God's help to do this!) God will open up some AMAZING doors not just for you but I believe indefinitely for the people around you. Amen.

I'm convinced and convicted to also give when I am present with my wife and family.  Men of God, women of God, let's pray:  God help me not to have any sour attitude towards my wife, husband, children, other family members in (and outside of) her/his/their presence. Give me a grateful heart God and help me to give especially when I don't have to but have the ability to do so.  Help me to be the best present to my wife under God on purpose and also a conscious blessing to those around me, in Jesus' name I pray. 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.

Declare Fearlessly (Ephesians 6:19-20)



Paul said,

"Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."  Ephesians 6:19-20

Lots of us might feel like we are held somewhere (waiting for that next thing to happen...).  But like us, Apostle Paul was in the same situation. He was in chains in a prison writing with those chains on his wrists.  He wrote and prayed this prayer:  He wrote, "Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."  Louie Giglio shared a message about this and he's right...people are praying about what God's will is for them.  Louie is saying that this was Apostle Paul's No. 1 prayer that he might make known the mystery of the gospel whenever he speaks.  Meaning whenever I open my mouth.  So we wonder where we are supposed to go or what we are supposed to do, but we can bury this and that concern because if we are living then we can think about this: what if we prayed this and made it our number one prayer, that WHENEVER we open our mouths that we might fearlessly proclaim the mystery of the gospel, in chains, in the living room, in the restaurant, working in the office, in NASCAR, in the hospital, in business, wherever.  What if we prayed that we proclaimed the mystery of the gospel and made it known; that the gospel might be proclaimed.  I want to make this my prayer in Jesus' name today.  Will you pray with me?  

Pray that I may use this situation to preach the gospel of Jesus.



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.

Hold On To Your Integrity Like You Really Mean To!




Get crazy about passion and hold hold hold on wildly to your integrity and don't give it up for no man.

Don't set up a condition!  THERE ARE NO CONDITIONS!  I know that's bold! I know that's scary! But do you know where that scary comes from...the fear of God.

We need to hold on to our integrity like we mean it!   And let the fears of other things melt under the fear and obedience to God.

The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.   I'm getting wild about this!

So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous. For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it

God really convicted me today of my integrity and has told me to hold on to it like I mean to.  One who holds on to something like their life doesn't just say, "Gee.. I hope I remember this lesson about my integrity". Or, "Gosh, I hope no one takes away my integrity..."  NO NO NO NO NO!  I hear God saying, "That is not attitude!"  We need attitude when it comes to this!!  The enemy is prowling and he means business, NOW WHY DON'T WE??    We need to be crazy, crazy, CRAZY about keeping our integrity (study about it!) because Psalm 41:11-13 - By this I know that you delight in me: my enemy will not shout in triumph over me. But you have upheld me because of my integrity, and set me in your presence forever. Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.

We hold on to our integrity and as we hold on to our integrity we will notice how the enemy hates hates really really HATES it and we will be tempted to give it up (to ease ourselves of the opposition we receive, mostly in the mind) but we won't. I repeat, WE WILL NOT because in it we proclaim that is exactly why God blesses us because we are out loud about our integrity because it tells the world that (A) God loves us and (B) we are His children and there is nothing the enemy can do about it.  Now what would make the enemy more angry?  That's why we can be tempted to fear because the enemy will try to scream at us to get us to loosen up, take it casually, relax, or just like what he tried to do when he tempted Jesus is try to get him to renounce his position but NO we are meant and made to be alert, but never alarmed, Amen!  We will always wildly and passionately hold fast.  We were made to hold to the things God has given us to take hold of.  I take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me and with passion I do this! With integrity of heart I do this!  That Jesus Christ died and in three days rose again from the dead! For me!  Say it! Now practice saying it with deeper and deeper sense of passion!  There's a difference between casually expressed and confidently and wildly expressed!!  And this my friends makes all the difference.  We need to get serious.  Delirious even!  We are rich my brothers and sisters.  We are rich.  Now hold on to your treasure and don't just give it away for peanuts.  Taste and see that the LORD is good.  He has satisfied your life with great things.  Hold to it.  Hold fast to all his blessings and promises.  Hold fast my children.  Hold fast my friends and fam.  God bless you.

God has great things in store for you today! God bless you and all yours!



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.

Women will Preach the Kingdom of God! : )



Mary, early in the morning, got up to bring some things to the tomb where Jesus was laid. She went there and the angel said, He is not here. He has risen!  "Tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.'" Mark 16:7 Then Jesus, there, said, "Mary" and He told her, "Go...to my brothers and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'" John 20:17   She was the first resurrection gospel messenger!

3 months ago, my daughter was born and I want the world to know that I will support what Jesus has for her in her life.  Don't think God can not use you to preach the best news EVER to the world!  Preach God's love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in Jesus name.  Preach Christ and share the good news!  I sincerely believe that in the last days women will preach the kingdom of God and we will see stronger and stronger singers singing the worship of the Lord and they will be anointed women of God because it was a woman that brought the prophet Samuel who anointed David through whom God favored Mary to bring the new beginning of the baby Jesus to earth and it was Mary, healed by Jesus, that God chose to bring the news of the resurrection.  Now, you will see women all over, EVERYWHERE singing and shouting and speaking somethings that are from God about Jesus because we have an announcement that Jesus is doing something new to change our nation in Jesus name.   You will see it with your own eyes.

You are also anointed if you hear what I'm saying and understand what I mean.  Go and tell someone what Jesus has done 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.
