Power in Praise

Psalms 103: 1-2
 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

The psalmist was exercising spirit control over soul control. He refused to allow his soul and body to dictate his covenant praise for God. Yes, covenant praise. We were created to praise and worship God. The scriptures tell us "let everything that hath breath praise the Lord"!

The psalmist said "everything within me". That means we should never halfheartedly praise God. We should not allow our soul to go on a spiritual vacation when we praise and worship our wonderful, worthy Lord. We need to take control and command our soul and body to be in unity with our spirit to praise God with everything that is within us. God’s presence demands respect, honor and praise. To resist the unction to function in a spirit of praise in His presence is nothing short of pride and rebellion. God deserves radical praise. He is worthy of humble adoration. God inhabits the praises of His people. Wherever God is there is power. The power of God is not only released in us but through us to others as well. God’s power plus your praise is an unbeatable pair. Go ahead, release God’s power in your neighborhood, in your family, in your marriage, and on your job through your unified: spirit, soul and body praise.

Living Large

Judges 18:9-10

And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land. 

When ye go, ye shall come unto a people secure, and to a large land: for God hath given it into your hands; a place where there is no want of any thing that is in the earth. 

God wants His children to live large! But we must be willing to rise up and go get what He has already given to us. The things God has provided for us are worth the effort. The scripture says to not be slothful. Well that word slothful means don’t be lazy. Laziness is a deadly hindrance to our destiny. It will pickpocket your divine vision and steal your dreams.

Laziness defined
• Unwilling to do any work or make an effort
• Moving slow

We must arm ourselves against this enemy of our faith and destiny. You must never allow your will to oppose God’s will for your life. Don’t argue and resist God’s plans and purposes for you by being lazy or complaining and  focusing on your inabilities. Make an effort to get up and go where He wants you to go. Get excited about things He has called you to do and then do them with the right attitude. Enter into your land of promise with the intent to take over. This is not a time to window shop, it’s time to possess.

God is extravagant; don’t limit your land to a small square foot. It’s a large land. Let God stretch your imagination and boost your expectation through meditation and supernatural insight. Be ready to see with your heart the things God reveals to you. Believe and receive! God has a place for you where there is no want or lack of anything that is in the earth. He is our Shepherd we shall not want!
So rise up and live large today!

By Faith

Hebrews 11:7
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. 

God’s plan for Noah included his whole house. God loves people even His enemies.
God gave Noah an assignment and Noah’s obedience to that assignment brought great blessing to him and his family. God loves your family. Can you think of any family members that God has been dealing with you to reach out to? Your obedience and/or disobedience to the plans and assignments God has for your life are most always connected to other people. The plans God has for your life are very strategic and important but they will not be obtained without faith. The Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word of God.
Noah heard from God. The words that God spoke to Noah produced faith. With the faith of God Noah prepared an ark and saved his whole family.

STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN! God is speaking to you by His Word and by His Holy Spirit.

Hear and Obey.
Someone maybe waiting to begin a new life with Christ, TODAY.

Submit to the Leading of the Holy Spirit

John 16:12-14

I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Jesus made it very clear from this scripture, who He had appointed to guide His church. He gave the Holy Spirit to every believer to escort and pilot us in the way of truth. God did not just leave us truth but He also provided the one who would Help us comprehend it. When Jesus spoke these words to His disciples they were mere unchanged men because Jesus had not given His life on the cross yet. Jesus told them that He had many, not a few but many things to say to them but because the Holy Spirit was not living in them yet they would not understand or comprehend the meaning of His words. If we are to live by every word that proceeds out of God’s mouth (Matthew 4:4), it is so important that we have understanding. Just hearing the word of God without understanding what was said leaves the hearer no better having heard. The bible says we should not just be hearers of God’s word but doers (James 1:22-23), however, if there is a lack or breech in ones understanding how can they accurately obey. How many times have you set in a lecture, conference, class, or group of one or two people and everyone heard the same thing but when questioned concerning what you heard, it was very clear not all had the same understanding. Well, God wants all of His children to be on the same page and with clear understanding of what He has spoken.  God did not ask us to put our own twist or interpretation on His message. We are commanded in the book of Revelation not to add to or take away from God’s word.

Many times God may speak one word to you during a time of fellowship or prayer with Him. For instance, you may hear the word "go." Well most people are familiar with the natural meaning of the word go. Go is a very simple, basic, elementary word that most people would not need much explanation or interpretation. However, God revealed to us in Isaiah 55:9, that our thoughts (human intellect), are no match for His thoughts. Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit we would begin to reason in our mind what God meant when He spoke the word "go." But God did not want our earthly lives to be lead by human reasoning. Human nature does not like being out of control, it wants to be in charge and out in front all the time, that’s why we must yield to the Holy Spirit. We must welcome and surrender to the comfort of the Holy Ghost at all times. The Holy Spirit will not intervene if you want to be the one in front and in control. The bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:6, to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God. The word humble means to submit and the phrase mighty hand of God means; God’s control or authority. We must submit and yield our whole being to God’s governing authority. Our heavenly Father loves us and He will never force or drive us into submission. He is not referring to the human perspective of submission but rather a divine revelation of love which produces submission. When we become intimately acquainted with Love it is easy to surrender and/or submit to it because there is no fear in love. Perfect Love cast out fear (1 John 4:18). God is Love and there is no darkness in Him (1 John 4:16). If you Love God then you will follow Him, let Him lead the way. You are not a robot but a spirit being created by God and given the power of choice.

God will give us the understanding of what He is saying to us if we continue to seek Him for more. Don't get ahead of God just wait upon Him and lean not to your own understanding but acknowledge Him and He will direct your path ( Proverbs 3:5-6).

So choose to allow the Holy Spirit to go before you and be your guide every day in every way. He will never lead you astray!

Sabotage defined:

• To damage, destroy, or disrupt something deliberately, especially in a war.
• To hinder something; to undermine or destroy somebody's efforts or achievements.

Other words similar to sabotage are: damage, disrupt, interfere with, interrupt, harm, incapacitate, and impair.

Have you ever heard of someone sabotaging someone’s promotion or sabotaging a marriage or sabotaging the plans to a big project, etc? Well, when you hear the word sabotage you can’t help but to think, “They did it on purpose”. When someone sabotages something it was generally pre-meditated. In order to successfully destroy something you need to know something about what you want to destroy. If you wanted to destroy a tall building you would not walk up to it with a plastic bat and start hitting it. No, you would want to know what it was made of so that you could bring the right equipment to bring it down. If you were serious you would not waste your time on things that would not cause destruction.

The bible says in John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

Whether you want to admit it or not you and I have a serious enemy. He is not playing ring around the roses with us. His intention is to sabotage your entire life, little by little if need be. The enemy does not mistakenly cause persecution or afflictions to come your way, no, his does it deliberately. He wants to take your head right off. However notice in the scripture John 10:10, Jesus said, “The thief cometh.” Jesus did not say the thief destroyeth. Just because he comes to steal, kill and destroy doesn’t mean he will. Jesus gave His church power over all the power of the enemy and that nothing by any means would hurt us (Luke 10:19).

1Peter 5:8 declares, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: “

This lets us know that the devil cannot devour whomever he desires but he seeks for potential prospects. If we stay sober and continue to be vigilant he cannot harm us. The word vigilant means: watchful and alert, especially to guard against danger, difficulties, or errors.

We must remain on guard at all times, never sleeping (spiritually) or slumbering. We are not helpless prey or sitting ducks, just waiting on our turn to be the next victim for him to devour………the devil is a liar! Be strong in the Lord, my brother and my sister, God will not allow your adversary to triumph over you.

Psalms 34:19 says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” 

You are a child of the Most High God, put your spiritual armor on and pursue your enemy and bring destruction to his kingdom. Sabotage his plans and purposes, crushing them to mere dust particles that evaporate in the wind. Bind the strong man and deliberately spoil his goods. It’s time to disrupt the enemy’s plans and bring un-repairable damage to his evil accomplices. You have an advantage over the kingdom of darkness, you have been raised up with Christ seated in Heavenly places, ruling and reigning with the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS!

None Compares

Psalms 89:5-9

And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints. For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

God is God all by Himself. He stands unmatched in all His mighty works. He is the ultimate and there is none like Him, nor shall there ever be. He is the first and the last. He is undefeated. He is the only wise God.

To compare God to anyone or anything is a failure in your assessment of true greatness. The truth of the matter is God cannot be compared, He is matchless. None compares to Him!

It's Attainable

Compromise defined:

• A settlement of a dispute in which two or more sides agree to accept less than they originally wanted.
• Something that somebody accepts because what was wanted is unattainable.

What part of your God given destiny have you compromised? Are there things God has shown you about your future, things He would like you to attain?

Now as you consider those things which of those things have you given up on because you reasoned in your mind saying, “Oh that will never happen in my life.”

Look long and hard at the picture God showed you of your destiny, if that’s not what you see in your life today you need to re-ignite the fires of passion in your soul and pursue with all your heart the plan God has for your life. Compromise must never be an option where your destiny is concerned. Fight the good fight of faith and fight to win. Don’t settle for anything less than what God has shown you. Your destiny is important to God and to us. Never retreat into a life of complacency; it will strip you of your passion.

Whatever things God showed you are attainable, so press beyond reason and aim for the target and watch the power of God propel you into purpose.

Philippians 3:14 (AMP)
I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.
