LIFE SEEMS TO CASCADE FROM ONE DAY INTO ANOTHER AND ALL OF A SUDDEN A DECADE HAS PASSED IN OUR LIVES OF WASTED TIME.

Today I challenge you to stop the avalanche of life and to lay hold of the PLAN that Jesus created for your life before you were ever born.

Eph. 2:10,  For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. AMP

YOU WERE FORMED WITH PERFECTION BY THE MOST FAMOUS AND CREATIVE ARTIST OF ALL……..JESUS CHRIST!

You are not an accident or just someone walking a journey on this planet…NO!

JESUS HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE TO PRODUCE THE WORKS OF HEAVEN ON THIS PLANET.  You are not an accident, or a person in survival mode.  YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED, SENT, AND EMPOWERED TO DO HIS WILL.

You were created for GOOD WORKS!

WHAT ARE GOOD WORKS?

Loving people

Sharing Jesus

Bringing healing

Showing mercy

Speaking hope

Feeding the poor

The list is never ending on how Jesus can use His life in yours to show His good works in people’s lives.

SHAKE YOURSELF TODAY AND ASK FOR REVELATION ON THE SPECIFIC CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT JESUS MOLDED YOU WITH TO CHANGE THE WORLD YOU INFLUENCE.

You are PURPOSEFULLY created for GREATNESS!

LIFE Beyond The GRIND!


daily-grind

IT IS SO EASY TO GET SUCKED INTO LIFE!

What do you mean by that Pastor?

I MEAN THAT THE DAILY GRIND CONSUMES US AND WE LOSE SIGHT OF VISION AND DESTINY.

Our lives are more than sleeping, getting up, showering, eating, brushing our teeth, feeding the dog, going to work, coming home, watching TV, going to bed………….THE DAILY GRIND!

YOU WERE CREATED FOR GREATNESS AND EACH DAY IS THE BUILDING BLOCK FOR YOUR DESTINY IF YOU CAN SEE IT!

What is the passion that Jesus placed in your heart?

What do you love to do for the Kingdom of God?

WHAT IS IT THAT PUTS A MASSIVE SMILE ON YOUR FACE EVERY TIME YOU DO IT FOR CHRIST?

That is a portion of the vision that makes sense of the daily grind.

Prov. 29:18,  Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Gen 12:2, And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

GOD TOLD ABRAM…..HE WOULD MAKE HIS NAME GREAT!

Why would God want to make you great?

BECAUSE IN OUR DAILY GRIND WE HAVE NO VISION FOR HIS KINGDOM, BUT WHEN WE ARE FOCUSED ON OUR DESTINY WE HAVE PURPOSE FOR EACH DAY, AND THE REASON TO MAKE YOUR NAME GREAT IS BECAUSE THEN HIS VOICE IS STRONGER IN THE COMMUNITY.

Stop being sucked into the DAILY GRIND and be that person of purpose and destiny.  You will find far more fulfillment knowing that your life is ordered from the Lord.

HISTORICAL FAITHFULNESS!


faithfulness

We cannot forget our history!

History is so important for two reasons:

1) It helps you not repeat the mistakes that caused failure
2) It helps us remember our successes and God’s faithfulness

Joshua 4:5-6
and Joshua said to them: “Cross over before the ark of the Lord your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, 6 that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you? ’

Our history of God’s miraculous favor, and multiplied miracles to establish His house is important to remember. Not living in the past, but applying the reminders that we can do all things through Christ because of what God has shown us from the past.

The past is not to be lived within, it is to be applied throughout!

The miracles that God has done to establish His house in Horseheads NY is a whole book in and of itself. Time after time of Daddy making something happen that was impossible.

KNOW THIS TODAY:
Your past is not your enemy!
Your past is not your shackle!
Your past, positive or negative is your propellor to greatness!!

Where have you piled your stones?

WASTED LIFE!


Wasted Life

SADLY, I HAVE LOOKED INTO THE EYES OF REGRET AS PEOPLE ARE PASSING FROM THIS SHORT LIFE TO THEIR ETERNAL LIFE.

They are now in eternity and cannot change anything.  The Books are closed on their lives and they will receive the HARVEST of their SEEDS.

BUT…….

YOU ARE NOT DEAD!

YOU ARE ALIVE!

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR CHOICES.

Pastor, you do not know all the bad seed I have placed in the ground over my lifetime.

I HAVE GREAT NEWS FOR YOU!

You have time to change the crop.  You have time to plant for a HARVEST of heaven.  You have time to till up the soil, fertilize, and plant seeds that will produce the GREATNESS of Jesus.

GOD WANTS TO MAKE YOUR NAME GREAT SO HE RECEIVES GLORY FROM YOUR LIFE!

Gen 12:2, I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.

Who was Abraham?

A man from pagan roots.

A man who God spoke to leave his family and go to a place of promise – but he still took his nephew.

A man who had issues in his life, YET……...

HE KNEW AND WAS A FRIEND OF GOD – relationship.

James 2:23, And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.

TODAY IS YOUR DAY TO CHANGE YOUR SEED SO YOU CAN PRODUCE A HARVEST THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD AROUND YOU.

Gin 24:34, So he said, “I am Abraham’s servant. 35 The Lord has blessed my master greatly, and he has become great; and He has given him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys. 

BE GREAT FOR GOD TODAY!

DREAMS COME TRUE!


dreams

SO MANY PEOPLE TAKE THEIR DREAMS AND PUT THEM IN THEIR PILLOWCASES AND PLACE THEM UNDER THEIR BED.

Joel 2:28-29, Then, after doing all those things,
    I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
    Your old men will dream dreams,
    and your young men will see visions.
29 In those days I will pour out my Spirit
    even on servants—men and women alike.

DREAMING DREAMS THAT ARE GOD INSPIRED ARE ONE WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS TO US.

I know there are people reading this devotional blog that Jesus deposited a DREAM in your heart to do great things and it is UNDER YOUR BED, tucked away and dormant.

Today I challenge you to grab that pillowcase and allow that dream given by the Creator to come alive in your spirit again.  To allow the Holy Spirit to breath on that dream and vision and have it come back to life.

GOD IS HUMUNGOUS SO DO NOT DISCOUNT THE DREAM BECAUSE HE WOULD NOT GIVE IT IF YOU COULD DO IT WITHOUT HIM AND HIS SUPERNATURAL DIRECTION AND POWER.

A true dream of God is always bigger than we are and must go beyond ourselves.

DREAM!

DREAM BIG!

ALLOW THE GREATNESS OF GOD TO BURST THROUGH THAT DREAM!

THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE!

I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST!

Throw the pillowcase away today.

A Monumental Week!

BUILDING MEMORIALS THAT REMIND US OF A LIFE-TRANSFORMING EXPERIENCE.

Josh. 4:4-7, So Joshua called together the twelve men he had chosen—one from each of the tribes of Israel. He told them, “Go into the middle of the Jordan, in front of the Ark of the Lord your God. Each of you must pick up one stone and carry it out on your shoulder—twelve stones in all, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. We will use these stones to build a memorial. In the future your children will ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ Then you can tell them, ‘They remind us that the Jordan River stopped flowing when the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant went across.’ These stones will stand as a memorial among the people of Israel forever.”

THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL BUILT MEMORIALS TO REMEMBER THE GREATNESS OF GOD!

These are moments that need to be remembered and spoken about.  Jesus opened the Jordan for us to cross.  A movement of God occurred and changed my life.  Jesus did something that I cannot negate or neglect.  The King of Glory showed up in my life and I will never be the same again.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU BUILT A MEMORIAL?

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A MOVEMENT OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE THAT STOPPED YOU?

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST POWERFUL EXPERIENCE WITH HEAVEN?

Do not be waiting on God to show up and do something.  GO AFTER HIM!

He is waiting to touch and change your life in your bedroom, your car, your shower…….

HE IS WAITING FOR YOU TO WANT HIM!

So many have traded Him for foolish, foul, short, satisfying things, when the Lord God Almighty desires to show up and move so strongly in your life that you will never forget it.

THIS IS YOUR WEEK TO PRESS IN AND BUILD A MEMORIAL TO REMEMBER HIS GREATNESS!

eXcuses, “X” Out Blessings


stop-making-excuses

Daniel
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came to Jerusalem and took it over. The king wanted some of the Israelites’ royal blood to be taken back into captivity. They were taught the language, trained in Babylonian ways to serve the king. Daniel refused to defile himself and took a stand and a test about eating unclean foods. He gained favor with the chief officers. God elevated Daniel through the supernatural ability like Joseph, to interpret dreams. Daniel rose in position and posture in the kingdom of the Babylonians, even though he was a Jewish captive.
Jesus can elevate you even in the worst conditions
Be consistent and faithful to Him, and He will raise you up!

Daniel 6:3-4
Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. 4 So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithfulnor was there any error or fault found in him.

Daniel was stolen from his home.
Daniel was taken from his mom and dad.
Daniel was brought to a foreign country.
Daniel was being reprogrammed by the Babylonian kingdom.
Daniel could not practice his spirituality like he used to in Jerusalem
.

THE LIST OF EXCUSES OF WHY DANIEL COULD NOT HAVE ASPIRED TO GREATEST IS LIMITLESS.

He could have blamed Neb!
He could have blamed God!
He could have blamed his circumstances!
He could whine & complain!

BUT
He chose not to use “X” cuses, but to be faithful to His God
.

He was known as a man with an EXCELLENT SPIRIT.
He was known as a man that was FAITHFUL.
He was known as a man without fault, or charge.
He was not perfect, but Daniel walked before His God.

HOW ARE YOU KNOWN IF YOUR NAME WAS IN THE BOOK?
WHAT ADJECTIVES WOULD BE NEXT TO YOUR NAME?
