A true Father takes the lead

I love my Bishop Holcomb… He just knocked me out of my see with a revelation. So many times in our relationship with God, as Christians, we tend to think that life in Christ means a life without problems when that is not true. Life with Christ means that no matter what situation you are in, God is able to help you!

Bad things happen to all people, but because you have God, you have tools such as increased PEACE and His POWER so that you can handle the bad!!!!

How????

Like this- When you have an understanding that God is greater than your trial or tribulations, you then understand that in God everything will be alright. God extend His power to us so that when trials come, we can rest easy because as Christians we understand the victory is already ours. Now it’s time for you to tell yourself who wins … the enemy which may also be called your situation, or God?  When you choose God, you are taking your hands off of the situation and allowing God to lead. The beauty of God leading is that He is a guaranteed win, there is not a failure in God… Don’t believe me, read your word.

You can go ahead and shout now… that’s life changing information!

How do I become a person who prays? #keepitreal

Too many times in our life, situations pile up like five o clock traffic, and while we’re in the midst of feeling stuck and aggravated, we do what comes naturally to us. Call a friend, scroll twitter, facebook or other social media. So today I want to talk to you about making prayer a natural reaction to life. Just like any habit, prayer is something you work at until your muscle memory defaults to prayer. You can train your thoughts to be on God when things are happening in your life. How? Start with 5 minutes a day; there is an amazing prayer app called “ the prayer app” that has tons of prayers for every occasion. Most of the prayers are less than 2  minutes long, download the app (it’s free) and find five minutes of your day to stop and pray. It has been said that it takes 21 days to create a habit, so if you can commit today to taking 5 minutes to pray for 21 days, I guarantee your life will never be the same. Let me know if you can commit 5 Minutes to pray for 21 days!

Peace

Prayer still works

We are all given the gift of perspective. Tonight as I look on twitter, Facebook, and other media outlets I have to turn to God and ask… “what am I seeing?” Beyond my carnal eyes there is a spiritual battle going on and it is my responsibility to do as God instructs and stand on my post with prayer. Many people ask, what can we do, what needs to be done? And the answer is not an easy or simple. It’s time we sacrifice our time, sleep, and social hour and get into our prayer closets and go to work.

The bible says we wrestle not with flesh and blood… what’s happening around us is more than a person against a person. It is spirits of anger, distrust and vulgarity. As christians we should want God to get the glory out of this mess, we need to take Gods perspective when deciding who we are and what we do.

Get off of your phone and get into your prayer closet, God will tell you exactly what to do from there.

Humbling Yourself Before the Lord Prayer


Humbling Yourself Before the Lord Prayer 
We give our heart to You Lord, Please teach us to be humble. We give our feet to You Lord, please help us not to stumble. Our eyes belong to you Lord, to see Your Holy way. Help us to look straight ahead, and seek You every day. With our ears let us hear Lord, every time You call. We give ourselves to You Lord,
we will obey Your Law. We give our hands to You Lord, we lift them up in praise. We will worship You Lord, all our blessed days. Our mouth we give to You Lord, we shout with victory. We belong to You Lord, now we are living free. Amen

#Fathersday

As Father’s day approaches I want to urge everyone to get to know the best Father you could ever have which is God.Whether you had a horrible dad or an amazing dad, it’s important that we acknowledge our role in contributing to who your physical father is in your life. It is our responsibilities to pray over the men in our life. Men are so strong and sometimes we forget that these protectors, laborers, and fortifiers needs spiritual covering as well. As this holiday approaches, let’s not just look for a tangible gift to give the father figures in our life, but this holiday presents the opportunity to sew spiritually into the men that we Love through prayer. Below I am going to present scriptures that you can incorporate into your gift of prayer over the men in your life. Happy Father’s Day!

Scriptures:

2 Peter 3:18, Proverbs 4:23- Concerning your loved ones relationship with God

Proverbs 15:33, Eph 6:6- That God will bless him

1 Corinthians 11:3- That they would be a spiritual leader for their family

Galatians 5:13-15- That they would make wise choices
