For all those viewing my page and or commenting, thank you for taking the time to read my posts, yet few and far between lately! I really appreciate you and may God bless you!
Recently, it’s been a rough patch in my home and my near family. I have to admit, it’s been good and bad, and also, disturbing! I have seen anger in myself and hatred! For what reason!? Because it is hurting my family, those I love dearly!? Yes! BUT what am I doing to my family more so, I’m hurting then with all this negativity! I can’t allow my emotions to cloud what God has control over and has had control. Anytime that kind of reaction poses, we are allowing satan, the slave master, to come at us because we’re vulnerable and we might believe anything we hear in the corner of our mind… He’s sneaky and ready to attack.
We need deliverance! We need a powerful prayer!
I shared this tonight with my loved one and it’s so fitting, weather you’re a believer or not… this is powerful! Take a read!
DELIVERANCE <———- (Click for link)
“Heavenly Father I come to you now in Jesus’ name, to repent of all the sins in my life and also in the lives of my ancestors, that may have resulted in a curse. I repent of all disobedience, rebellion, mistreatment of others, lying, cheating, using or slandering your name in vain. I repent of all perversion, lust, incest, fornication, adultery, idolatry, all witchcraft, murder, and any occult involvement.
Heavenly Father, I ask for your forgiveness and cleansing through the blood of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus I now take the authority you have given me and ask that you anoint me now as I command all demonic spirits of anger, rage, fear, depression, destruction, torment, guilt, bondage, vagabond, rejection, unforgiveness, bitterness, mind-control, double-mindedness, confusion, passivity, sickness, diseases, pain, fetter and all addictions to food, alcohol, drugs, sex, pornography, gambling, or nicotine to come out in the name of Jesus.
No demonic spirit is welcome in this holy temple!
I break all spoken curse and spells that may have been performed over my life and any curses resulting from involvement with Ouija board, Psychics, tarot cards, Horoscopes, secular music, or through TV, movies or pornography.
I break all curses off my family, marriage, children and relatives. I break every shackle, chain, cord, habit, craving, debt, soul-ties and any spirit that has tried to rob, kill, or destroy my life.
I command my family to be set free. I break every demonic assignment over my family. Satan, loose them now! In Jesus’ name! According to Galations 3:13, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law.
Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am now God’s child and through my Lord Jesus, I am able to cast down all demonic powers and spirits that come against me or in my family’s lives.
I am not cursed, but blessed! I am blessed coming in and blessed going out. I am above and not beneath. I am the head and not the tail. I am blessed and what God has blessed cannot be cursed. I am free, and I am saved. I have now exercised my faith and know that confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9,10). All of my sins have been remitted, and I am loosed from the curse that came as a result of disobedience and rebellion to the Word of God.
Thank you Heavenly Father, thank you Lord Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit for forgiving me and loving me. Thank you for setting me free from every curse and spirit that has operated in my life. Father God, I pray for discernment and for a new vision to help me recognize and resist all evil and all fleshly, worldly ways. I am anointed through the Lord Jesus Christ, and I thank you Jesus for your guidance and discipline as I continue to be a victorious soldier and holy child. AMEN.”
LEAD ➡️ in the churchPhilippians 2:1-8
Fruit is the byproduct of your relationship with Christ. We will not enjoy true love and peace until we have got Jesus as our savior and as we connect and grow! No matter if you’re an introvert or extrovert, you’re a leader! It begins in the home so we can outpour that love to others! God uses us in different compacity to influence people! Every person has a unique function to fulfill in the church. Challenge: discern and discover why God has put you in your church to lead the church and the body!!
“I exist today to function for the purpose of leading people to Jesus!” We are a movement of God! We are here to lead! Say it to yourself, “Leadership!” Spiritual leadership is servant leadership! Our model comes from Jesus Christ. Best way to lead the people is through HUMBLE SERVICE.
** READ THIS DAILY: “Do NOTHING from selfish ambition or conceit, but in HUMILITY count others more significant than yourselves.” (Vs 3)
Big idea: I am connected to and and this church, and I am growing in my faith, in order to LEAD people to Jesus, not only in my HOME, but also in my CHURCH.
Fullness OF JOY (1-2)
* Cherish the love this church possesses because of Christ
* Celebrate the Unity this church possesses because of Christ
– If Jesus wasn’t here, this wouldn’t be a friendly place. We are united in many differences and by Jesus, we have that love we need to posses it! You should find encouragement, empathy, mercy, and spiritual growth. Jesus is the cornerstone! Be united and celebrate together. We are very unique! We all have a past that brings us together and our perspective of life helps each other to see what could change or benefit others in our venture! Only in a church can you find unity in diversity. Find joy in all your days! No one wants to follow someone that doesn’t have joy in their life! LEAD in JOY and watch people that will be drawn to you.
Mindset OF HUMILITY (3-7)
* Not, “what do I want?” But, “What will strengthen the church and build the Kingdom?” * Higher callings and positions of influence do not terminate the necessity of humility, but ENLARGE it.
– It’s not about me, it’s about your church and what will strengthen your church! Your participation and what you can do to HELP your body will make it more abundant and enlarge the kingdom of God; more successful church! “Must resist me first mentality.” Jesus was as high as you could get, he was equal with God! The higher you are, find humility, so that you can come to others! Push out barriers and enlarge the understand for NEED of humility and get more people to the presence of God! What of God has given you a higher calling for the benefit of Jesus!!! Spear of influence is based on doing something that you would ask someone else, that you will do yourself! Lead by example.
Acts OF SACRIFICE (8)
* Give your best – Give your all
– Jesus talked and bared action with his words! He emptied himself, left the splendor the heavens to come to this world, as a helpless baby and SACRIFICE himself! Spiritual labor… Jesus gave his BEST and gave his ALL. Do your best for then glory of God!
** Smartphone: Take the spiritual gift assessment.… email it to the pastor (if you feel lead to do so)….
Don’t assume you KNOW what spiritual gift you have… take a moment to find out…. what is your gift. The church body, the city, NEEDS YOU! All that we do in the church for the church, is for the glory of God!
Check your abilities and do so with joy, humility and love!
** In a church, its not about just you, it’s about the whole church! “The church needs your help and someone else will do the job, someone else will step up.” Do you know this for sure!? Assuming that someone else will intervene and take a place… you don’t know that for sure! **
“So if there is any ENCOURAGEMENT IN CHRIST, any COMFORT FROM LOVE, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do NOTHING from selfish ambition or conceit, but in HUMILITY count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
– Philippians 2:1-8
Living for God Is All That Matters
“All of us enjoy being well thought of, it is not possible to be liked by everyone all the time. In God’s economy, we usually have to be willing to lose something we have in order to gain what we really want in life, and that means we have to stop comparing ourselves to other people’s standards and start living for God. Real friends will encourage you to make God number one in your life. ” – Joyce Meyer
Don’t take life without an understanding that our life is NOT our own, our life belongs to God and we should want to love to honor Him on a daily basis!
Don’t live your life trying to please others…. others are bound to let you down! But God will NOT let you down!
Getting Rid of Unrealistic Expectations
What a quick way to steal our joy…. thinking of something or feeling as if something greater or more will come to fruition…. but He is a God miracles, right? Why put ourselves into a false sense of reality and feel as though something is coming before it does without His blessing?
But we have to remember its HIS time and HIS plans for US!
“If only in a perfect little world, we all know that isn’t reality. In reality, only God is perfect and the rest of us are under construction. The devil knows what steals our peace and he sets us up to get upset when our unrealistic expectations fall apart. I have discovered that if I don’t let those things impress me, then they can’t depress me.” – Joyce Meyer
God can give you the power of strength! Don’t falter because life doesn’t go as we, your family or even just yourself may have planned! I have been there myself, pity party for one, please! Why go through that, depress yourself, distance yourself not only from ones that love you, but THE ONE true God that loves you and accepts you as you are 24/7!?
Don’t give up! Brush it off as best as you can and flow with the storm ⛈. There is a purpose and He will provide ALL the answers you need, in time!
A Life of Discipline Will Bring God’s Peace
There is so much that competes for out time and energy… and our concentration…. how much is too much….
One might wish for more time, or more ability to do this and that, but aren’t we the ones that determine our schedule (in a manner of speaking). We can make more time if we choose to do so.. we have to find what is more important to us! We need to be more disciplined!
“I had to discipline myself in order to simplify my life. Ask the Holy Spirit for help. He can guide you, showing you what commitments to make and which ones to turn down. Begin disciplining yourself today, and you can begin to enjoy the peaceful life that God has waiting for you.” – Joyce Meyer
Discipline today = fruits tomorrow!
2. LIVE in a way that attracts people to His light
3. SHARE His light always
How can I pray for you?

Learn to Trust God’s Plan for You
Is there a problem to being independent? Too independent? Feel like you simply can’t relay on anyone else or because you haven’t in a long while or maybe you rely too heavily on someone else and not on God. I think we have been there far too often … I speak for myself when I say I have been on both sides and have to conquer that daily to understand each and everyday of my life isn’t MY LIFE!
So what can we do? Who do we go to? Friend? Husband? Parent? Close… our one true Father in heaven! God! He will meet our every need! We don’t have to rely on ourself or anyone else so heavily or even understand everything that happened, just knwktnjng who has control of our life!
“Now trust won’t just magically happen. Trust grows as we take steps of faith and experience God’s faithfulness. You have to tell your doubt, your fear, your insecurity, or maybe even your fierce independence to make way for a life of trusting in God. When you do that, you won’t have to struggle so much to make your life work. So even when it doesn’t make sense, trust Him, and experience His freedom and rest.” – Joyce Meyer
Life isn’t always going to be easy or understandable! We listen! Pray! Lean on Him and know who holds your future day in and day out!
Our life is NOT defined by what happens to us! Your walk in public with Christ is only as strong as it is in private. As roots protect us, we must also branch out…
Big idea: to fulfill Gods purpose for my life in this church, I must grow TALL spiritually through daily reflection and unashamed action.
Identify WHO YOU ARE (14)
We should be a reflection of Christ. As children of Christ, we are a reflective light, a tall light and we don’t do anything to have it, it s there, waiting for us to illuminate it to the person who needs it most. We are to bear witness! “Cities on a hill are to be seen.” Stand on a hill and be seen, let others see your light. Daily reflect: we are a light for others to see so others can come and find us and find rest! Don’t lose track of our mission! Reflect on his word, His song, serving others, being on mission! Music is powerful! The song can change you weather you see it or not… focus on the words because it can and will fold deep into your soul!
Influence THE WORLD AROUND YOU (15-16)
Song: This little light of mine… “hiding a bushel” – hide or steal someone talent (Matthew 5) don’t hide Christ’s accomplishments…. don’t dismiss what He has, is and will do! Where has God placed your lamp? He has placed you for maximum illumination! We don’t always see it, but there is purpose! Job, city, season, reason and timing! To hide our lamp would be against our DNA as a Christian! Would you agree? People should notice you…. if you were removed. Would people notice? Would people be upset? Would people fight to have you stick around?
When you do something… outward focus? Is this going to leave an impact on the city? On the neighborhood? We grow tall by putting our faith into action. Accrational evangelism…. we don’t need a prize to be attracted to come to God. Be on your game everyday to see what’s important and what’s not…. Are my good works attracted people to God!
When you see someone, you might only see their branches, unless you get to know someone personally, you may not see their root system!
Is your life attractive? Full of love and compassion? Change a persons vision of Christian… humble, asking forgiveness, knock down walls, giving love and not hate…. love and serve people. It’s. It about you! It’s about others!
Reminder for this week my friends….
1. KNOW that you are a direct reflection of Gods light to this world
2. LIVE in a way that attracts people to His light
3. SHARE His light always
You have got to spend time with God on a daily basis…. 5 min a day a least as a start… see what it does for you!
“”You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
– Matthew 5:14-16
How can I pray for you friends? Let me know!
Experience a new beginning
“Choose to think according to God’s Word, not how you feel. Receive His love and experience a new beginning. Life will become so much sweeter if you live with an attitude that says “God is completely changing me from the inside out. He’s giving me a new beginning and there are greater things ahead.”” – Joyce Meyer
Short and sweet for today friends… accept Him and have faith…. everything will fall into place!
If I can pray for you, please let me know!
Give him your ashes
Our mistakes are apart of our past, but they make US! We are Gods children, we are represented by Jesus, loved and accepted! We can ask fifty times for forgiveness and God will continue to do so because He loves us! Don’t fall trap into believing you have to be something greater, you just have to repent and believe in God and that Jesus died for us and for our sins and that He is in control of us and our life!
From dust we became and dust we will go….
“Isaiah 61:3 says He will give us “beauty instead of ashes,” but I find that many people want to hold on to their ashes, the cinders of the past, as reminders of their shortcomings and failures. I encourage you to let go of your ashes and reach for something new. God is full of mercy and long-suffering. His loving-kindness never fails or comes to an end. Jesus came to lift burdens, let them go, and believe He is greater than your mistakes. Give Him your ashes today.” -Joyce Meyer
