Don't Just Proclaim It Once!



"Then he said, "Take the arrows," and the king took them. Elisha told him, "Strike the ground." He struck it three times and stopped." 2  Kings 13:18

The arrow, in this case, for yours and my life is our voice and what we proclaim out loud!  The king had the choice the proclaim what kind of victory he wanted.  Now is your turn.  Strike the ground! But don't strike it three times and stop!  Strike hard more than three times!  When we run, if you run for 2 minutes and stop there is not much gain.  But if you run for about ten minutes or so, something interesting happens.  Your own body that was once tired a few minutes ago begins to pick up momentum and your body discovers a law that once momentum has picked up there is no stopping your goal.  So proclaim what kind of day and week you want, but my strong suggestion is don't just say it once, say it 5, 6, or 7 times again with passion.  Those proclamations are the direction you are setting for your day, week and life so KEEP PROCLAIMING!   But do not stop on two or three, keep going!

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.

The Righteous Have But One Strategy (The Power of Staying)



I was listening to a preacher give a message about how the enemy uses strategies to get to us and it made me think. The righteous have and always will have only but one strategy.  The wicked detest the righteous because of this.  The wicked have many many multiple strategies and craftiness to get their way, but the righteous only have but one way and they find much much more success than the wicked.  Look at the enemy and Eve as they talk.  The enemy made the woman keep her eyes off of obedience to God which was her salvation, and instead on the multiple features of life she received from obedience (eating from the trees, whether she will live or die, general knowledge).  Now, understand that the righteous only have but one strategy, they trust in the name of the Lord, Jesus.  And then they keep trusting.  And then they keep trusting . In trust, they obey, worship, and praise the Lord and they find incredible life and success in every area of their lives and their generations for generation after generation and they are blessed because of their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.  Do not sell out your strategy for the multiple useless strategies of the enemy.  Do not move off of this wall.   The enemy knows the value of this, your one strategy and he wants to entice you to get off of that one strategy and the moment you recognize this, just keep trusting, keep believing, keep on the same wall you have always been on and be more confident than ever before in the name, the only name of Jesus Christ.

In God we trust.  And this is the very thing that the enemy wants to take away from the United States, because if he can take this away from the United States there is nothing that the US can do to defend themselves from the enemy.  We must be aware of this;  The righteous on have one strategy: In God we Trust.  Don't move from this wall.

Psalm 20:1
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
    May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
    and give you support from Zion!
3 May he remember all your offerings
    and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4 May he grant you your heart's desire
    and fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,
    and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!
6 Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
    he will answer him from his holy heaven
    with the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall,
    but we rise and stand upright.
9 O Lord, save the king!
    May he answer us when we call.

God's Praise is Like Honey! : ) Celebrate Your Small Victories!




"Jonathan said, "My father has made trouble for the country. See how my eyes brightened when I tasted a little of this honey." 1 Samuel 14:29


At the battle, Jonathan didn't know that his dad made his soldiers fast until the battle was won, but Jonathan had a taste of honey because they won a victory and he gained great strength.  Saul represents a lot of what we are not supposed to be and a lot of how we are not supposed to live.  That honey brought Israel closer to winning the next battle than when they were going without food (in the middle of a battle and going without food is not wise in the first place!).

Here's my point: Praise to God now is a taste of the honey that we need to get closer to fulfilling the calling purpose , meaning and the destiny that God has for us.  We have to realize that if we are going to have triumph we can not go on long without a little taste of honey!  We need that honey for strength to bless this day with the triumphs that God has laid out for us!  Praise God today for the small victories! Praise God today for the little victories and the little great blessings that you have and then do it again!  You will be surprised what God will do when you praise Him for being who He is!

The Bible says, "Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord. (Isaiah 54, Verse 1)
(Verse 2) Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes,
(Verse 3) For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Thank God PASSIONATELY.  Give him a different praise and thank  Him for longer than a moment today.  God has been truly good to you!  Praise God!  Praise Him and watch God do a miracle in your life!

No Room




I have worshiped God to the point that there is no room for nothing but worship! Holy Holy Holy! Lord God, ALMIGHTY!  You are HOLY!  There is NO ONE LIKE YOU!   God Almighty!  All Holiness is in Him.  God Almighty!  All Worship belongs to GOD.

Jesus is our very very great teacher.  What is He a teacher of most of all?  He is a teacher of how to worship God Most High.  And I will worship God. Jesus is our teacher and He teaches us how to worship God Most High.

I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.  He reigns in glory and power and majesty!  Amen!  God is calling us to fellowship with Him.  I will worship His name in more proficient and excellent ways!  I profess that I will worship Him in excellence!

As you worship, lift up the wonder, the worship, the witness, and the fight and God You have won the war, we are winning the battle, we are winning the war by the power of the love of God and by the Powerful Spirit of God Almighty!  By the blood we have won the victory!  Thank God for the Blood of Jesus, wow for me.

I'm getting excited now!

Thank you, God! ALL VICTORY BELONGS TO YOU!

My Fire My Flame and My Focus


"giving orders to the people: "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before." Joshua 3:3-4a

The Israelites were entering into new territory.  What would determine their victory on all sides?  Their focus on obeying the Lord and focusing on the Ark, which represents the eternal covenant between God and His people, which He later established through the blood, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  This focus wins every battle every time and will never ever fail; it is written in heaven forever.

God encourages you to say" I will fight for my fire my flame and my focus".  My focus is where the fire and flame comes from.  If you feel a conflict that means something, some extra commitment needs to be considered to be fallen off.  The art of letting go.  The art of less is more.  The art of saying, "No" regardless of the money offer, regardless of the strategic connections you could get, regardless of the great name you could conjure up for yourself, learn the art of focus.

Focusing on the simple things you are already doing.  Let go let go let go.  If you feel a conflict or a certain stress with something you want to "make happen" let go, spend some time with God because God wants to spend some time with you.  Talk with Him, just with Him and talk with Him and listen to him.  He has a word; He has something He wants to tell you.  He wants to strengthen  your spiritual bones and bring you with Him spiritually deeper deeper with him.  We wants to bring you into a room to shake  you up to shake off those things you have to let go of, something  had a problem with before He will make you not only incredibly secure but incredibly and positively influential in that area because He is God and He knows what's ahead so trust Him; He is your defense; He is your redeemer, defender, restorer, strengthener, light, force, power, He is your everything or bust.   God is on your side and making a way and if you feel an attack than shout louder and praise God because the enemy is UPSET with you!  Why? Because EVERYTHING blessing related is about to burst forth! Get prepared for it now and spend some time with God.  He is about to bless you.  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.
