KNOW THE FACTS, SPEAK THE TRUTH

Today’s Bible Verse Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭(NKJV) Know the Facts, Speak the Truth The supply of the Spirit of God is available for everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  No matter where you are in life, I encourage you to choose to live by faith.  Faith is not something we wait for; faith is now.  Every time you meditate on God’s Word, faith comes.  It’s a trust and confidence that comes only as you get to know His Word.  Faith is found in two places: in your heart and in your mouth.  When faith is in your heart, you begin to speak faith.  You must use the imagination that God has given you to dream your miracle into existence.  Don’t look at the things that are seen, but continue to see your life through His Word.  Dr. Cho says that dreams and visions are the language of the Holy Spirit. Allow the Holy Spirit to paint that vision and dream in your heart.  Have a dream and vision of your team of 12, your healing, or for restoration in your marriage and relationships.  Maybe you need to reach loved ones that need to know Jesus.  Decide today to be a person of faith and start speaking to those mountains!

GET OUT OF VERSE 21

Today’s Bible Verse Martha said to Jesus, “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, my brother wouldn’t have died.” John 11:21 TPT Get Out of Verse 21 Did you ever say to yourself… “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, my marriage wouldn’t have ended”? “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, we wouldn’t be homeless”? “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, my kids wouldn’t be on drugs”? “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, my husband wouldn’t be in jail”? “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, my cancer wouldn’t be terminal”? “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, I wouldn’t have gotten laid off”? When Lazarus was sick to the point of death, his sisters, Martha and Mary, sent a message to Jesus saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick” (John 11:3 NKJV). Lazarus wasn’t only an acquaintance of Jesus; he was a very dear friend. At this point, Jesus was healing complete strangers. Surely, He would rush to the side of a close friend, someone the Bible says Jesus “loved.” I’m sure Martha and Mary had the very same thought, which is why they emphasized “he whom You love,” probably with the intention that Jesus would move more quickly. However, the Bible says that Jesus didn’t leave from where he was for another 2 days. Within those 2 days and the time it took Jesus to get there, Lazarus had already died. Can you imagine what was

LOVE THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS

Today’s Bible Verse And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2 (NKJV) Love that Moves Mountains 1 Corinthians 13 describes God’s love and points out that without love, every good intention amounts to nothing.  We could operate in spiritual gifts, yet, without Love, it’s ineffective.  The Kingdom of God operates by faith and Love.  I’ve often heard the statement, “faith is the currency of heaven,” but what does that really mean?  I’d like to share 3 foundational principles on how the Kingdom of God operates.  First, God is Love!  Everything about God, everything He has done (gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, for our redemption) is because He is Love.  The Greek word used when describing God’s Love for mankind is Agape.  Agape is indescribable; it’s His nature.  In Romans 5:8, the Word says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Verse 10 of that same chapter says we were enemies of God.  Sin separated us from God (Romans 6:23), but God who is Love and so rich in mercy has always extended and continues extending His grace and mercy towards us.  Hebrews 7:25 shares how Jesus always lives to make intercession for us, and intercession is the highest expression of love. The next principle is faith works by

LOVED BACK TO LIFE

Today’s Bible Verse So this is my command: Love each other deeply, as much as I have loved you. John 15:12 (TPT) Loved Back to Life In the verse above, Jesus says it so simply—love each other the same way He loved us. Sometimes we may think it is impossible to love the way Jesus does, but on the contrary; it is very possible. We have the Holy Spirit, and because He dwells in us, He can work through us. But how does the love of God look when we live it out in our lives?  I remember a season in my life when I had made a conscious decision to turn from the things of God. I had a word spoken over me by three pastors, on three different occasions, within one week, and they all said the same thing about my future in ministry. I was so nervous about what they said and even more afraid of the responsibility. I tried to run as far as I could because at the time, I did not know it wasn’t me but the Holy Spirit who would work through me; I just had to be a willing vessel to be used.  I found myself going my own way and doing my own thing. Although I was married with two children, I was more focused on my career goals and my fleshly desires. Nothing else mattered. In this season, although I could hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, I ignored

PASS IT ON

Today’s Bible Verse O God, You have taught me from my youth; and to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come. Psalms 71: 17-18 (NKJV) Pass It On David felt a great responsibility to pass on what God had shown him. He told stories and wrote songs about how God worked in his life. He never missed an opportunity to tell the people about the power of  God. David was a walking testimony for God to show the generations that God can still do wondrous works. As Christians, there is truly an urgent responsibility for us to pass the torch on to the next generation, especially when it comes to the Great Commission:  And Jesus came and spoke to them saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the  Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am  with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV)  The generation right behind you needs to know how to win souls and make disciples. Establishing a  solid education, playing in athletics, having a great paying job are all good opportunities to
