February 24th 2018 – Sweet “Lemonaid” Pie

“But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.” (Genesis 39:21)

No matter what stage you are in life right now, chances are tough situations have hit you out of nowhere. It happens to all at some point in life. Maybe, you are a young adult and didn’t realize that it was going to be this hard to get started. Your marriage or relationship could have hit a difficult time. With retirement around the corner financial issues could have altered your future. The reality is that, in life, things happen that can affect us spiritually and mentally. Don’t Lose Faith! It’s not over. God will bring you through it.

Reading about the life of Joseph, I am sure he felt the same way. He had been betrayed by his brothers, thrown in a pit, and sold into slavery. If that wasn’t enough, he was falsely accused of sexually harassing Potiphar’s wife. He could have given up on life, but instead he realized that no matter the circumstance, the Lord was with him.

Our circumstances in life might change, even change quickly, but God holds all time in His hands. The Bible tells us that He is the Alpha and Omega (Rev 22:13). We are told that God exalts those who humble themselves before Him (James 4:10).

When life gives you lemons, make “Sweet Lemonaid Pie!” (See recipe below) Turn to the Lord and trust in Him. He will bring you through it.

“Knowing whose you are, is to know who you are. This enables you to know how to react and what to say, when trouble comes, wherever you are.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for encouraging me. Help me to know my identity in You and trust You more. Thank You Lord. I pray these things in the name of Jesus, Amen.

February 23rd 2018 – Sin Kills

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Sin… a tiny word, a huge problem. Think of all the problems in your own life caused by your sin. Think of all the problems in the world caused by the sin of others – wars, violence, stealing, laziness, and envy. On and on and on the list goes and grows. There is a saying, “Sin is the seed, and death is the harvest.” The bible has a lot to say about sin. It tells us that sin is not only the bad things we do, but also the good things we don’t do. When we fail to love, give or help, we are engaging in sin.

As long as we never do wrong and always do right, we don’t and won’t have a problem with sin. “Wow, that really helps!” That may sound easy to some. But the truth is, we are all sinners…

However the Bible tells us how to deal with past sins and how to deal with sin in the present and future. It is easier than you think. “Past sins,” you may ask? Ask for forgiveness.

(1 John 1:9-10) “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.

What about dealing with our present sins? (Hebrews 12:1-2) says that we should strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up and that we should run with endurance the race God has set before us.

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the winning coach, who initiates and perfects our faith. Here is a awsome truth, one you can trust even on Aprils Fools day. Don’t tell God you have a big sin problem, tell the sin problem that you have a Big God. Think about life, think about Jesus, and keep your eyes on Him.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for taking my sin upon You. I am sorry for the wrong things I have done and for the right I have failed to do. I confess my sins to You and ask for forgiveness. (Confess your sins, by act and by name to Him). Lord, thank You for helping me with my past and present sins. Help me to keep my eyes not on my sin, but on my Savior, Jesus. Help me to soar by casting off the weights of sin. Help me to live the life You have called me to live. I thank You for having a winning game plan for dealing with my Sin, In Jesus’ name, Amen

Looking to ask Jesus into your life? Read Below..

Jesus says “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.” (Revelation 3:20)

The Bible promises eternal life to all who receive Christ: “And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.” (1 John 11-13)

If you have not asked Jesus into your lifeYou can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer.

Prayer is just talking with God. He knows your heart, so don’t worry about getting your words just right. Here is a suggested prayer to guide you:

Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Saviour and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. Amen.

If you have done this, then congratulations! (Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Saviour the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that he answered your prayer.

February 17th 2018 – Give the Worry to God, He is in Control

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (1 Peter 5:7)

“A pastor had been on a long flight from one place to another. The first warning of the approaching problems came when the sign on the airplane flashed on: “Fasten your seat belts”. Then, after a while, a calm voice said, “We shall not be serving the beverages at this time as we are expecting a little turbulence. Please be sure your seat belt is fastened.”

As he looked around the aircraft, it became obvious that many of the passengers were becoming apprehensive. Later, the voice of the announcer said, “We are so sorry that we are unable to serve the meal at this time. The turbulence is still ahead of us.”

And then the storm broke. The ominous cracks of thunder could be heard even above the roar of the engines. Lightning lit up the darkening skies, and within moments that great plane was like a cork tossed around on a celestial ocean. One moment the airplane was lifted on terrific currents of air; the next, it dropped as if it were about to crash.

The pastor confessed that he shared the discomfort and fear of those around him. He said, “As I looked around the plane, I could see that nearly all the passengers were upset and alarmed. Some were praying. The future seemed ominous and many were wondering if they would make it through the storm.

“Then, I suddenly saw a little girl. Apparently the storm meant nothing to her. She had tucked her feet beneath her as she sat on her seat; she was reading a book and everything within her small world was calm and orderly.

“Sometimes she closed her eyes, then she would read again; then she would straighten her legs, but worry and fear were not in her world. When the plane was being buffeted by the terrible storm when it lurched this way and that, as it rose and fell with frightening severity, when all the adults were scared half to death, that marvelous child was completely composed and unafraid.” The minister could hardly believe his eyes.

It was not surprising therefore, that when the plane finally reached its destination and all the passengers were hurrying to disembark, our pastor lingered to speak to the girl whom he had watched for such a long time. Having commented about the storm and behavior of the plane, he asked why she had not been afraid.

The child replied, “Cause my Daddy’s the pilot, He is the best Pilot and he’s taking me home.”

There are many kinds of storms that come over us.

Physical, mental, financial, domestic troubles, helplessness, loneliness and so many other kinds of storms. The bad weather can easily and quickly darken our skies and throw our plane into apparently uncontrollable movement. We have all known such times, and let us be honest and confess, it is much easier to be at rest when our feet are on the ground than when we are being tossed about a darkened sky.

(Philippians 4:6-7) reminds us, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

The next time you start to panic, pray. Maybe it is in the middle of the night. (Isn’t that when panic often strikes?) When that happens to me, I say, “Lord, there isn’t anything I can do about it right now. This is Your problem. I’m giving it to You. I’m going back to sleep, and I’ll see You in the morning.”

There is no good in worry; it doesn’t help anything. In fact, Gods written word also says, (1 Peter 5:7) “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you”. So don’t worry. Pray. And as you pray, it will help you overcome your anxiety and worry. Commit your cares to the Lord.

Let us remember: Our Father is the Pilot. He is in control and taking us home.

“When the burdens of life overwhelm you, take them to God in prayer.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the blessing of prayer. I come to You with nothing but empty hands and a heart that desires more of You. Please Lord, take my life and do with it as you please. You know my heart and my needs. Help me put You first and trust You, even when I feel You have not answered my prayers yet. I trust You and desire to glorify Your name in all that I do. In Jesus’ name, Amen

February 15th 2018 – Forgiven in Christ

“Nevertheless, brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God” (Romans 15:15)

Satan loves to remind us of our past sins and failures. He finds great pleasure in bringing up things that God has long forgiven us of.

(Revelation 12:10) refers to Satan as the “accuser of our brethren.” That’s what he does, but not because he’s really got anything on us. If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the Bible tells us that your sins have been separated from you as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). So, what does it profit the enemy to bring up what you’ve been forgiven of? He wants to distract you from following Jesus. If he can get you to listen to his accusations, maybe he can shame you into believing that you’ve crossed some line of forgiveness that doesn’t exist. That is his game and he is betting that he can pull you into it. Remember the words in 1st John

(1 John 1:9) “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Has Satan distracted you from following Jesus? Don’t believe his lies, and friend, in love, you need to quit listening to your enemy. You have got a great future ahead of you. Satan, on the other hand… well… his future is not so good because he will be thrown into the lake of fire. He will be destroyed. He knows it. So, the next time the enemy tries to remind you of your past, remind him of his future.

“We often forget what we should remember and remember what we should forget.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for sending Your only Son, Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. Thank You for the promise that one day, You will wipe the tears from my eyes and there will be no more death, sorrow or crying. Thank You that I can have peace through Jesus, no matter what trial or difficulties I am experiencing. Please forgive me for the times when I have surrendered my peace to a situation or problem and help me to live for You every day. I rejoice in knowing the future that lies ahead of me is so much better than the past that is behind me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 13th 2018 – Battlefield of a Christian

“Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 2:3)

Some believe that when you become a Christian, all your troubles are over. They think that in some magical way you won’t struggle with anything. The real truth is that sometimes it can be a tough road. In many cases throughout scripture, the Christian walk is seen as a battle. We fight a real enemy, but putting on our spiritual armor we can endure the hardships. This is part of our life, but there is more to it than simply suffering for sufferings sake. We are children of God, and we get to play a part in destroying the darkness and shining the light.

There is good news in this battle. You see, we are not alone. Our weapons are far greater than anything our enemy has because ours come straight from God. He is on our side and will be with us every step of the way. Even more than that, Jesus Himself suffered as we suffer. He knew pain. He understood heartache. He endured the battle and can relate to our struggle. With this understanding, He has compassion. With His divine nature, He has all the power of the universe at His disposal. One day, He will declare the ultimate victory but until then, we will endure suffering on His behalf so that more and more people can come to know the Truth of God’s love.

“Our Savior and Lord stands ready to defend those who are His own.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your loving hand of grace. While I may endure suffering, I know that I will never be fully crushed under the weight of it. Empower me with Your Spirit and equip me through Your Word so that I can be a soldier fully prepared to fight the good fight for my King. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 11th 2018 – Dealing with Doubt?

“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life.” (John 5:24)

One question that I was recently asked is, can Christians lose their salvation? People are afraid of this, and I think it’s for good reason. New believers often experience moments of doubt, and so do Christians who have known the Lord for many years. In fact, the first temptation the serpent presented in the Garden of Eden was to doubt God. He said to Eve, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” (Genesis 3:1). In other words, “Did God really say what you thought He said?”

When you have thoughts like, Maybe I’m not saved; maybe Christ really isn’t living inside of me, you need to stand on the Word of God, not on your emotions, because emotions will fluctuate. When they do, here are some Scriptures passages to remind you of God’s faithfulness:

“All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true.” (1 John 5:10)

“For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.” (Romans 8:16)

“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” (John 5:24)

“I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:13)

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39)

During His temptation the wilderness, Jesus responded to each challenge with the words, “It is written,” and then He quoted the Scriptures. Jesus stood on ground that we, too, can occupy. As we quote the Scriptures, it will bolster our faith. That is why we need to know the Word of God.

“Dealing with DOUBT? Pull your Bible OUT!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the Bible. I realize many men and women have died that I might have a copy of it in my life. It truly is a treasure and a light to my path. Please help me to read it, dig into it, and spend my days going through the incredible riches of this supernatural book. Thank you for making your Word available to me. Its because of your sacrifice on the cross and Your very written word that I can have assurance of salvation. I declare that I’m increasing in knowledge and understanding, and the Word of God is producing in me what it talks about. Thank You God for writing Your love letter straight to me called the Bible. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 5th 2018 – I Messed Up Again!

Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.” (John 4:13-15)

Have you ever messed up so badly that it left a sense of believing that God wants nothing to do with you? If your answer is “yes,” then you’re in good company, because we all have. We’ve all made poor choices and bad decisions. A bad decision can cost you your marriage, job, friendships and even your peace of mind.

But, if you’re willing to admit you’ve messed up, you’re a prime candidate for an encounter with Jesus. In fact, He specializes in ministering to messed-up people. One of the many things I love about Jesus is that He gravitates toward those who are typically ignored, ridiculed, hated and rejected.

One of the greatest examples of this is found in the book of John. In chapter 4, Jesus encounters a woman at a well. This nameless woman meets Jesus while she performs one of the most mundane tasks in her messed-up life — drawing water out of a well.
She quickly learned a lesson we all need to know as well — the mundane can become momentous when we let Jesus clean up our mess-ups and radically change our lives. Jesus wants to clean up our mess-ups so much that He will break down every possible barrier to do so.

For example, to meet the woman at the well … Jesus overcame a cultural barrier. Jesus traveled through a region that His people “the Jews”  would always avoid. Jesus saw culture, not as a barrier to compassion, but as a bridge to ministry.

Jesus overcame a moral barrier. This woman carried a terrible reputation. Her past put her in the category of a Hall-of-Fame sinner. She had been married five times and was now living with a man who wasn’t her husband. With this track record, everyone in her community knew her, and no man would dare to speak with her in public. No man, except Jesus! Jesus engaged with this woman, and we see her fess up to her mess-up.
We live in a culture that teaches us to hide our mess-ups and call them anything except the sins that they are. Jesus demonstrated through this woman that He will forgive us when we are willing to confess our sin to Him.

Jesus is not intimidated by our past. He sees beyond our failures and offers us a faithful future. You can’t do anything so bad that it will cause God to love you less.

If you’re reading this today and feel like Jesus wants nothing to do with you, I want you to know that He will break every possible barrier to reach you. Jesus is so serious about the task that He left heaven and came to earth to restore anyone who is willing to be cleansed. Today, you can meet with Jesus, bring Him your mess-ups, and allow Him to clean you up.

“Addiction does not always kill the addict. But it kills the hearts of the family and friends that love you and tried to help!”

“Jesus wants nothing more than to forgive you of your past and give you a brand new fresh start, confess your sin, ask for forgiveness and ask Him into your heart. He will help you, if you let him.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me so much that You destroy every possible barrier that could keep me from You. Help me to quickly fess up to my mess-ups, so that I can receive the wonderful forgiveness that is only found in You. Please help restore my life and help restore the relationships that I caused pain to. Come into my life and rescue me Lord!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

**Special Prayer Request**

Please pray for my son Michael. He knows the Lord and gave His life to him 6 years ago. However the Enemy has a tight hold on his flesh. He continues to struggles with addiction. He recently was clean and sober for over a year.  Unfortantally my son has become a slave again to this horrible addiction. He is at the worse we have seen and we don’t know where he is. He also has a baby boy named Noah that needs his Daddy healthy and clean of drugs. Please pray for protection from the enemy and his lies and schemes. Pray that he has clairity and will recheck himself into a program, and one would be available.

As his earthly Father, I thank you.

January 31st 2018 – Why Would God Choose Us (Part 1 of 5)

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty” (1 Corinthians 1:27)

When you look through the stories of the Bible, one thing stands out, and that is that God doesn’t do things like the world does.  He operates the way He wants to and nobody is going to tell Him differently.  We see this so clearly in the type of people that He uses.  He doesn’t go for the high and mighty, He goes for the low and humble, and makes them into who He wants them to be.  For the next few days I want us to look at different people in the Bible and see how God chose them and used them.

King David:  David was a young man that watched his father’s sheep.  One day when the prophet Samuel came to anoint one of his sons to be the next king of Israel, his father never even called him to come in to meet this great man of God.  Yet after Samuel went through all of David’s brothers he asked if there was another.  Look at what the Bible says:

(1 Samuel 16:10-12) Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, “The LORD has not chosen these.”  And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.” So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the LORD said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!”

David’s father might have passed him up, but God didn’t.  At times you might feel like you were passed up, but stay faithful and close to God your Father, because He is the one that has great plans for you.  He never misses the one that He wants and what He is looking for is a person with a pure heart.  So today, be that person.  Yes, why not you?

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, It is You Lord that promotes and makes us strong, so today my trust is in You.  Lord God, You will get me to the place that You want us to be. Thank You for all you do. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

As King David faced Giants in his life, so will we. Don’t face them alone.. if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus, please click here to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

January 26th 2018 – God’s Warning Signs

But the LORD God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.” (Genesis 2:16-17)

Why are we always drawn to that which is forbidden?

All we need is for someone to say, “Whatever you do, don’t look up,” and we will immediately want to look up. We hear, “Whatever you do, don’t go in there,” and we will want to go in there.

Try saying to a child, “Stay out of that room,” or “Don’t touch that,” and that child will immediately begin to push the limits and try to see how much he or she can get away with. It is our human nature.

Perhaps in our sinful way of thinking, we assume that God says no to us because He is trying to keep us from something that would be enjoyable. We think, Why wouldn’t God let me do that? If God really loved me, He would let me do anything I wanted to.

But that kind of reasoning is simply false. Because God loves you, He puts up warning signs and barriers and tells us, “Stay away from that, don’t do this.”

The Bible tells us, “For the Lord God is our sun and our shield, He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.” (Psalm 84:11).

So a good thing to remember is that if God tells you not to do something, then that something is not a good thing.

In sense, God issues warning signs, and there was one clearly attached to a particular tree in the Garden of Eden, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

God placed Adam and Eve in an absolute paradise, talk about landing a great job. Adam’s job was to be in the Garden and to appreciate and discover all that God had created. He was to spend time in the presence of the Lord each and every day as the Lord came walking through the Garden during the cool of the day.

God had placed only one restriction on Adam and Eve. Of all the trees in the Garden,  (there must have been thousands of them) there was only one tree they could not eat from.

And yet, in Genesis 3, we find Adam and Eve hanging out at the foot of the only tree God told them to stay away from. Adam and Eve deliberately ignored the warning God gave them.

The devil is cunning. He will try to make the bad look good and good look bad. And he does a pretty effective job of it, look around us. There is no doubt he was trying to attract Adam and Eve to this tree to get them to eat of its fruit.

We notice three specific strategies the devil used to get Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit.

First, he questioned God’s Word. He did not deny that God had spoken; he simply questioned whether God had really said what Eve thought He had said. He wanted her to think that perhaps she had misunderstood God’s command. And today, the devil still twists the truth to try and alienate people from God.

Second, he questioned God’s love. He wanted Eve to think that God was holding something back from her when, in reality, God himself had placed those restrictions for Adam’s and her own good to keep them from sinning.

Third, he substituted his own lie. He questioned God’s Word, he questioned God’s love, and then he substituted his own lie. He led them to believe that they would become like gods if they ate the fruit of the three. He was saying, “Eve, You will be a goddess. Imagine. You will know good and evil. God is trying to hold something back from you. Go ahead, it’s ok…”

Here we see a primary principle of spiritual attack: the devil works from without to within, which is the very opposite of God’s method. God begins His work in a person’s heart, and the changes then affect his or her outer lifestyle. But the devil will always to try to come from the outside to gain a foothold on the inside.

That strategy was successful with Adam and Eve, and their eyes were opened to the wickedness of sin, the deceitfulness of the devil, and the weakness of their own nature. They were exposed to all of the wicked depravity of the world.

Unfortunately, we know more about this wicked world than we should, and we know far less of the Word of God, which we desperately need.  As the apostle Paul said, “But everyone knows that you are obedient to the Lord. This makes me very happy. I want you to be wise in doing right and to stay innocent of any wrong.” (Romans 16:19).

It all starts with paying attention to the warning signs God gives us. Are you ignoring any today?

“The devil will twist the truth to try and alienate you people from God.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for taking my sin upon You. I am sorry for the wrong things I have done and for the right I have failed to do. I confess my sins to You and ask for forgiveness. Lord, thank You for Your warning signs that help turn me from sinful things. Help me to keep my eyes not on sin, but on my Savior, Jesus. Help me to soar by casting off the weights of my sin. Help me to live the life You have called me to live. I thank You for having a winning game plan for us, In Jesus’ name, Amen.

January 24th 2018 – Victory with the Power of the Holy Spirit

“So Samson went down to Timnah with his father and mother, and came to the vineyards of Timnah. Now to his surprise, a young lion came roaring against him.  And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done.” (Judges 14:5-6)

“And she (Delilah) said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” So he awoke from his sleep, and said, “I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!” But he did not know that the Lord had departed from him..” (Judges 16:20)

Samson is a powerful example of a man of God who won his battles over and over again because the Spirit of the Lord came upon him. Yet when he was finally defeated by Delilah’s temptations he didn’t realize that the Lord had left him, the woman’s spell was so erective.

The enemy is subtle and the temptations of the flesh can so quickly quench the presence and power of God’s spirit that we may not even realize it has happened. But this anointing of the Holy Spirit is our Life….and our victory. Opposition can be destroyed and burdens can be lifted when His wonderful Presence fills and rests upon us. Our greatest battle is maintaining that internal communion with Him by His Spirit. Temptations, bad habits, our sinful nature, demonic attacks, all these collaborate to rob us of this holy anointing, our communion with God, and our only real power over every enemy!

Samson’s victories vividly demonstrate the tremendous power of the anointing. His power over the Philistines was legendary and truly heroic. But when he lost his anointing, they nearly destroyed him. How critical it is in these days to keep our lamps burning with the Holy “oil” of Yeshua’s (Jesus’) anointing. His goodness will defeat the evils around us…His light will banish darkness…His joy will annihilate our depression…His forgiveness will root out all bitterness…His love will overcome our natural hatred…and every subtle deception will be exposed by His excellent TRUTH! Seek HIS ANOINTING, the fullness of the Holy Spirit — He will equip you to break every yoke of bondage and defeat every internal and external enemy.

Please don’t find yourself in the condition of Samson, in the arms of his lust, not even realizing that the anointing had left him. The cost was enormous, even though he was restored. Instead, guard yourself against the subtle temptations of this world seeking more and more of His indwelling Presence. That anointing will produce one victory after another.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, You know the thirst each of us have! Lord we as your children come to ask You to fill us with Your Holy Spirit. Lord!
