Hiding the Word in our Hearts

April 24, 2017

As Christians it is imperative that we have a regular diet of the word daily if we are to get the victory over sin and be who God said we are. For the psalmist says “Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11). There is no guarantee that we won’t sin against God (at times) even with the word of God in our hearts, however, when you have a consistent feeding of the word, your chance of falling into sin  becomes less and less. It becomes less and less because you are renewing your mind and feeding your spirit man with the necessary nutrients to be spiritually successful. Let me encourage you to continue to hide the word of God in your heart because it’s changing you into who God called you to be one day at a time.

God Bless You,

We Must Serve God After His Pattern

January 1, 2017

In the 25th chapter of Exodus God begins to show Moses how he desires the tabernacle to built. He declared that he wanted the tabernacle to be built according to all the pattern that he would show him. What we should learn from this is that God is a God of specifics. He wants us to serve him the way he desires and he will not veer from his plan. We don’t get to serve him the way we want and still think that we are going to heaven. We don’t get to pick and choose the parts of God we want and think that we are going to heaven. We don’t have to over think this Christian walk because God has told us how we are to serve him in the pages of scripture. There is a pattern that all of us are to follow and we can choose to follow the pattern or not. However, the path you choose will determine your destiny.

Speak Pleasant Words

September 16, 2016

As Christians we must learn how to speak words into others lives that edify, that strengthen, that encourage, words of kindness, those that bring life. For pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones. Are you speaking words into your marriage, into your children, into your family and friends that edify down to the soul? It’s way too easy to be a pessimist, let’s be a people who operate in optimism and speak life.


When Spouses stop kissing Intimacy gets missing

June 10, 2016

The Song of Songs opens with a Shulamite woman saying “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine (Song of Songs 1:2).

Kissing in marriage is a sign of love, sexual desire or reverence for your spouse. And spouses need to kiss more and allow intimacy to arise to make you drunk with love instead of simply heading for the sheets. Kissing gives God the opportunity to lead the love encounter, kissing gives God the opportunity to stir up the process of making love to the degree that both leave the marriage bed satisfied. However, I find that many couples kissed frequently before they got married, but after getting married, especially if they have been married for some-time, the joy of a kiss was few and far between. Let me encourage you to get excited about the kiss in your marriage like the Shulamite woman did when she was in the presence of her love because the kiss can stir up a level of intimacy that you may not have experienced in a while.

Who Are You

April 6, 2016

That’s really the question God was asking Israel when he said in (Hosea 7:8) “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.” Ephraim (Israel) didn’t know who they wanted to worship, whether God or idols. They had a mixture of idolatry and the worship of Jehovah and that’s never pleasing to God. Thus, they were a cake not turned and a cake not turned is good for nothing. It is not edible because it’s burned on one side and doughy on the other side, therefore it needs to be thrown out. And the truth is, many so called Christians are that way, they don’t know who they serve; some days they want to serve Jehovah and other days they want to serve idols, including themselves. Who are you? Are you a cake not turned or are you the real deal, because if you are the real deal, at least two will have to agree, God in heaven and Satan in hell, because Satan won’t have a real Christian in hell and God can’t do nothing but accept a real one in heaven.

The Lord desires to bring us up before He brings us out

February 1, 2016

Joshua 24:17 says “For the Lord our God, he it is that (brought us up and our fathers out) of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed.”

The Lord desires to bring man up to his level of thinking and up to his level of living before he brings you out of your trouble. In various places throughout the OT you see this phrase “Brought us up and our fathers out” and the truth is if God brought you out of your trouble before he could bring you up to a level where you have a real relationship with him, you would find yourself right back in the same situation. How many times have we said to God, God if you get me out of this situation I promise I won’t go back, only to find yourself right back in the hole that you said you wouldn’t go back to. Hence, God needs to truly bring you up (where you can see your situation through the eyes of the Holy Spirit) before he can bring you out with success that will be long lasting and not a temporary thrill.

God Bless You

All Things New

January 5, 2016

(Rev. 21:5) says “And he that sat upon the throne said, behold. I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

There is no doubt that if you want to be new in 2016 you can be. If you don’t want to make the same old New Year’s resolutions only to break them before month’s end, there is a way to walk in that newness to the degree that it becomes a part of who you are. Let me challenge you to trust God because he has the ability to make all things new, including you, if that’s what you want. But you have to desire the change and you have to desire the change agent, Jesus Christ, even more if you really plan to be different.  Too many of us declare and decree that our change is coming only to find ourselves in the same state or even worst by the end of the year. He said He makes “all things new” and you can trust it because he also said “these words are faithful and true.”

God Bless You
