He equips us with all we need

God doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called.

Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Ephesians 4:11-13 
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ

~~~ Reflections~~~

Reflecting on all the things God has brought you throughout your life. God has an amazing way of working things out for your good and for the glory of His name! Do not rely on your own strength alone. Have Faith. When God Calls, He also Equips!
You may be more prepared for your calling than you realize. The Lessons God has taught you through your life experiences, whether good or bad. These life experiences are no different than Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Noah, Joseph, Elijah, Billy Graham or anyone elses testimony.
The same power that equipped them and brought Christ back from the dead is in you! That power is equipping you to do God’s will and to please Him in the things He’s called you to do in Christ. Fear has no place when power that can raise people from the dead is on your side! He equips us with all we need.

When God calls, He equips!
When God calls you, He will equip you!


Now may the God who brought us peace by raising from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, may he manifest His perfection in every part of you,  make you complete in every good work to do. Giving you all that you need to fulfill your destiny. And may he express through you all that is excellent and pleasing him to Him. In Jesus Christ the Anointed One who is to receive all glory forever! Amen

shield of faith

Psalm 18:35-36

You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me, So my feet did not slip.


God gives you the authority and power to have victory, through Salvation. Jesus Christ.  His very presence surrounds and fills you.

He is like a shield that protects you. No

GOD is spirit

John 4:24

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to wop in spirit and truth.”


It pleases God for you to worship Him.
He longs to have sincere worshipers who worship and adore him.
He longs for you to have a sincere heart of worship. 
To Worship in the Spirit.
For God is a Spirit. 
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him, are called to worship in 
with our hearts, minds, soul and all our strength are open to His Love and Grace, 
that we can worship in Spirit and Truth. 
The place and timing are not of importance to God.
 He doesn't care where you worship him.
You can be in a barn, in your closet, or in a  church. The place doesn't matter. 
The time doesn't matter. Day noon or night.
Your surroundings are good for nothing.
It is not the right place, but with the right heart that matters.
It is the true passion and desire to worship God that you worship in Spirit and Truth.
He desires you to come worship and adore Him in the Spirit and in with a true heart. 

Father, we set aside all worldly thoughts, and invite you Holy Spirit in. You Father are Holy and Worthy to be worshipped.  We come before you with a heart of adoration and gratitude. Holy, Holy, Holy are you. Glory be to you LORD GOD MOST HIGH.

by His grace they have been erased

Ephesians 2:8-10

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

God loves us with such significant love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy. I cannot think of anything I would rather be rich in, then to be rich in God's grace.

I may not know all my flaws, imperfections, sins, or my own weakness.
I DO know that I have many of them. And by his grace they have all been erased.

I do not boast in my good works, for all the Glory goes the Lord.
Salvation cannot be earned. It is truly a free gift from God. There is nothing we can do to earn it. We have to accept this gift of Grace.  For this is all a part of the Lords plan. He wants that we should walk with him. We were created in Christ for good works, to bring Glory to God.

~~~ Prayer ~~~
Father of grace and mercy thank you. Thank you for extending grace even when I have not deserved it. Thank you for giving mercy when I most needed it. Thank you for giving life. Thank you for being my God. Thank you for preparing my way. In Jesus Christ Name. Amen.

"No room in the inn!"

Luke 2:11-14 
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

"No room in the inn!"
"Placed is him in a manger!"
Isn't it interesting how God revealed Jesus to the world.
He entered the world as the child of a Jewish carpenter and a young virgin from a small town.
Born in a manger. "Glory to God in the Highest"
You hear some say. So sad, I say How prestigious to be greeted by an Angel and a multitude of heavenly host Praising HIM!

God wants us to notice those in need around us.
He wants it to be more than an annual good gesture at Christmas.
He wants us to be advocates for the widows, the poor and those around us  who are struggling.
We're not just told to be fair,
we are told to take the time for those in need. 
When you do, do it for the Lord.
As the tender of the inn.
He didn't have much but he gave what he had.
A manger. 
Sometimes when you don't have nothing to give,
you can be and advocate for those who are in need.
Lift up there needs in prayer.

Lord, Make me more aware of those around me who need your love and grace.
Make me your instrument to help them and to serve them.
You supply all my needs. I ask that you would supply the needs to the.
poor, widows, lonely, to those who don't know you Lord.
I come as an advocate on their behalf.
Now I ask for the overflow of blessings to supply others needs.
Open my eyes to see Jesus in the faces of those in need.
Open doors of provision, for me also Lord that I may tend to your sheep.
In the name of my Jesus, Amen.

When your in the most difficult times, God is closer to you than ever

Luke 1:26-56

Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel
was sent by God
to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph,
of the house of David.
The virgin’s name was Mary.
And having come in, the angel said to her,
“Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you,
blessed are you among women!

When she saw him, she was troubled at his saying,
and considered what manner of greeting this was.
Then the angel said to her,

“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son,
and shall call His name Jesus.
He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest
and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever,
and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

You may not even be aware of the impact you are making
in someone else life. Or maybe you are?
I doubt Mary knew how she was going to impact peoples lives.
What matters is how you deal with going through those
uncomfortable circumstances or situations.

Your actions affect how others see you.
Do they see your faith.
Your circumstances may not always be what you expect.
Change happens. It even happened to Mary and Joseph

Could you imagine if Mary had said....
"no, Lord"
"Now what am I going to do Lord?"
"I am not going to have time for myself, or things I desire."
"Ahhh My routine is all messed up!"
"All of my friends will be gone"
"I don't like being uncomfortable"

We should try to follow Mary's example.
Trust in the Lord. Have faith.
Mary may had a bit of fear at first.
I mean come on, if you saw the angel Gabriel
don't you think it might shake you up a bit?

She placed her trust in the Lord
Then Mary said,
“Behold the maidservant of the Lord!
Let it be to me according to your word.”
And the angel departed from her.

When your in the most difficult times,
God is closer to you than ever.
God has a purpose for this season and every season.
Rejoice that God is Mighty!
That He has dominion over every aspect of your life.

Lord I am thankful you have dominion over every aspect of my life.
Let your will be done according to your word.
I rejoice in the conception of your Holy Son, Jesus!
For finding Favor with Mary.
I ask that you would find favor with me, and reveal
your Holy Spirit to me when I am in uncomfortable situations.
Remove any strongholds of fear, anxiety or doubt.
We give you the Glory! Amen.

Be built up by Faith! Not by Fear!

Jude 1:20-25

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And on some have compassion, making a distinction,
but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire
hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. Glory to God

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power,
Both now and forever. Amen.

Glory to You God!

So many times we allow fear to get in the way of our faith.
This is not what the Lord would have us mature in.
Be built up by faith, not by fear. Be merciful to those who are not yet saved. Or who doubt. Be merciful to those who doubt. May you spread the message of His Love, Mercy and Salvation. 

For He is able to prevent you from stumbling through your faith. You are able to keep yourself in the love of God, by your faith and praying in the Holy Spirit. Seek Mercy through
Our Lord Jesus Christ though Faith.

You will be seen unblemished in the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,and much Rejoicing!
Such as a Present, in His Presence you are!
You are much like a present to our Father through His wonderful Son, Jesus Christ.

Think of yourself as a present on Christmas morning as a child would receive that long desired, treasured gift.
That is How God sees you through his Son.
Our Redeemer.

May the Lord keep you upright and plant you firmly in His presence
clean, unmarked, and joyful in the light of His glory. Mercy and Peace and Love be multiplied to you, through our Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good

1 Chronicles 16:34

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
And say,
“Save us, O God of our salvation; Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles,
To give thanks to Your holy name, To triumph in Your praise.”
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting!
And all the people said, “Amen!” and praised the Lord.


Give thanks to the Lord!
Giving thanks to the Lord, for all things, can be a changing moment in our relationship with God. He is the God of our salvation.
We were created in His image. Therefore we have the same type of feelings as God.
So yes when we don't follow His house rules, like our earthly parents, I believe He would be upset with us. Maybe even broken hearted at times. 

Like anyone else gratitude is pleasing to the soul.
God longs for us to show gratitude to Him.
Today lets show appreciation for the gift of salvation that was given to us.
Let us return kindness to God.
God sent His Son for our Sins.
No matter how much we mess up, His mercy will endure.
Yes He is the Lord God of Israel. But He is also our God.
He is everlasting to everlasting. 

Holy Lord, we give you thanks that you are the God of Our Salvation. 
We thank you for your mercy that endures forever and through every sin.
Praise your Holy Name oh Yah, for you are worthy God. 
Your promise is everlasting to everlasting, as you are.
We thank you Lord for this life, for being such a good, good God.

Our life will follow where what we feed our eyes! 

Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.


Our eyes are the steering wheel in the direction we go.
God wants us to keep our focus on Him throughout the day and night.
He wants you to include him in all things.
Sweeping the floor, washing dishes, shopping or having a conversation.
God wants us to acknowledge him.
Through prayer we can keep our eyes on 
the author and finisher of our faith.  
Our life will follow where what we feed our eyes! 
So lets run the good race that is set before us.
Let's make sure that we focus on Jesus.
Try to fix our eyes on Jesus throughout every part of your today.

Almighty, Holy God, Thank You for your grace and the gift of salvation. Thank you for Son, Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, thank you for his death and his resurrection. Father I pray for the Holy Sprits intercession to keep my eyes focused on Jesus!  Help me to make you a part of  everything I do. In Jesus Christ Name Amen.

Son of David have mercy on us

Matthew 9:27-29

When Jesus departed from there,

two blind men followed Him,
crying out and saying,
“Son of David, have mercy on us!”
And when He had come into the house,
the blind men came to Him.
And Jesus said to them,
“Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then He touched their eyes, saying,
“According to your faith let it be to you.”

~~~ Reflections ~~~
How can we receive blessings, healings or salvation, if we do not have faith?
Our faith guarantees us the fulfillment of God’s promise to us for an eternal life with Him in heaven.
Yes our faith enables us to see the invisible, believe the unbelievable, and receive the impossible. Faith receives the healings, gifts and blessings from the Lord. Faith has no boundaries. Much like Love. Faith demonstrates hope and trust in God.  Faith is the assurance of things hoped for.

You notice the 2 men saw the healings that Jesus did. They had faith, their hope to be healed, made them follow Jesus. That took faith to follow after Jesus.  Jesus then speaks to them they are healed according to your faith let it be to you.
Faith  requires us to trust in God, with complete confidence and willingness to trust the Lord.
Growing our faith is a part of our journey with the Holy Spirit.
This means knowing that all things are possible by our faith in Jesus Christ.

~~~ Prayer ~~
Oh God, Thank you for being faithful and true. Your word does not return void.
We have complete confidence in you. We place our trust in you God, that our faith is unshakable. We desire faith that can move mountains, when we pray for others you will be faithful and true. Healings and blessings will flow abundantly through your name. In Jesus Christ Name Amen.
