Don’t get discouraged

When we are facing difficulties, we can either keep going or we can give up. There is an in-between area where we don’t know what to do and we leave it to chance to take care of the situation. There are really two sides; the side of the ones who persevere and the side of the ones who throw in the towel. I have visited the “towel” side way too many times in my life before I encountered Jesus. The encounter changed my life in many ways and one of the ways it has impacted me is that it showed me that I should never give up. I have Jesus. Why should I give up when I have the Savior on my side? There are  many accounts in the Bible of people who decided not to give up. People who walked in faith and didn’t care that people around them didn’t make it. They knew that with the Lord they could make it. David is one of those people who took residence on the side of those who persevered. He said a thousand may fall at his side, ten thousand at his right side, it will not come near him. He knew that the Lord would fight his battles and he should never get discouraged. He persevered and he kept going. Today I want to encourage you to keep going. Don’t give up. Don’t get discouraged. Things might be falling apart around you and inside of you but the Lord your God will mend you and He will fix everything around you. Stay in the camp of those who persevere. Your faith will be greatly rewarded!

“Don’t give up” is what I hear deep down inside when I get into prayer during difficult times. Giving up would be so easy. Giving up would almost be a relief but it wouldn’t help. It wouldn’t make things better. We are not called to be under but to be over. God is on top of everything and He is pulling us up to His side. He didn’t send His Son so we would be victims. He didn’t send Jesus for nothing. He sent Him to redeem the world, to save us and to give us life in abundance. Giving up is not recognizing that we have a life of abundance in the Lord. Giving up is saying that Jesus didn’t fulfil what He came to do. Giving up is removing ourselves from the blessings of the Lord. Giving up is showing that our faith is not strong enough when in reality it is. Giving up is letting the enemy win and giving him permission to manifest his lies in our lives. Giving up is forgetting that we are made the righteousness of God and we are more than conquerors. Let’s fight against the discouragement that assails us and that leads us to give up. Let’s stand in faith and let’s persevere. We are in good company. Many before us have kept going. Many believers are not giving up today. We have the same Jesus and the same power backing us up!

Don’t give up, friend. The road ahead of you will be paved with breakthroughs and blessings when trust in the Lord. Nothing is impossible with God and your current situation will change. It is going to change in the name of Jesus. Keep believing! Keep trusting! God works everything out for the best and He takes good care of His children. You are a child of God. You are protected and you are more blessed than you know. The Lord is fighting for you. He is going before you and He is going to do some amazing things for you. Put all your faith in Jesus and you are guaranteed to win and to make it. You are an overcomer in the name of Jesus. No situation that comes against you will destroy you. Don’t give up! Don’t get discouraged! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

All your needs will be met

God will supply your needs according to His riches in glory. The Bible doesn’t mince its words here. God will give us what we need when we rely on Him and He will get the supplies from Heaven. This indicates that there is unlimited provision and God can give us absolutely anything we need. Some people have used that verse to build the prosperity gospel. I do believe that God can make us rich but is that His first goal for our lives? When we enter the house of the Lord, His Spirit is what we should notice first, not the Rolex and the Louis Vuitton. Our needs are spiritual first and foremost because what we need the most is to know Jesus and to be more like Jesus. This doesn’t mean that our physical and financial needs can’t be met by God. He is God. He can do anything. However, He desires for us to be part of His kingdom more than to be part of an elite club.

I have had lunch at the Harvard Club in New York city a couple of times thanks to a friend who invited me. I enjoyed the experience and the food was delicious. I had to dress a certain way to be let in. I am glad that with the Lord we don’t have to look a certain way or act a certain way to be accepted. He loves us and He wants the very best for us. Before we run elbows with the club members of the world, we ought to sit at the table of the Lord and get the food from Heaven that we need. We all have major spiritual needs. We all have to grow and learn more about God. The good news is that the Lord Himself can help us grow and learn and He will provide. Today I want to remind you that God will give you what you need. Trust that He can and He will. He will bless you spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially. Remember that He is Spirit and your spiritual life is more important than the other parts of your life.

It’s amazing to think that we have the Holy Spirit to assist us all the time. He is a gentleman who shows us  the way and who comforts us. I have found myself asking for help many times and I have had to hold on to hope and faith when nothing seemed to happen. One thing I have learned is that when I need something material or money, God does a work in me first. He touches my heart and He puts something in my spirit that changes me. It usually involves patience and long suffering. He knows how much I need those traits. The money that I need will come. The provision will come and in the meantime I should focus on the fruit of the Spirit in me. That is one of my main needs and God makes sure that He opens my eyes to that need. Then it is up to me to develop the fruit and understand that God is meeting my needs. I speak about God’s abundance in my life all the time. I try to speak of His provision for me a few times a day with the understanding that my spiritual needs are a priority. God will supply your needs according to His riches in glory, friend. That is quite a lot of riches. That is more than all the riches in the world combined. Don’t worry about what you don’t have. With God it will come to pass. Stay in faith. All your needs will be met. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

Jesus over everything

The other day I woke up feeling a bit lousy. I had what felt like an ear infection even though the doctor said I didn’t have one. It was a combination of allergies and blockage of sinuses. I had not slept well the night before and my mind was telling me it was going to be a rough day. It was 5 am, my usual wake-up time and I started to dread the day because of the thoughts that were bouncing around in my head. I refused to subject myself to that negativity. It took a stand. I said No out loud. I decided to rise above the situation knowing that Jesus was above my situation so I sided with Jesus. I used that first hour of my day to “inject” Jesus into my thinking. I chose to join Him and be joyful for that moment instead of sliding into despair. I didn’t feel good but I knew my feelings didn’t matter. Jesus mattered and He was going to get me through the day. I applied Jesus over everything. I lifted Him up above everything.

I declared the goodness of the Lord in my life. When negative thoughts attack you, you need to attack them with God’s Word. I quoted scriptures and I quoted whatever the Lord was putting on my heart. I turned the whole thing into a praise session with great words of affirmation. I wasn’t going to let the opposition win against me that early. When it begins that early, your day is usually destined to be very difficult. Fight the good fight of faith first thing in the morning, friend. How you start your day, what you think first thing in the morning and your early morning attitude are key. I put Jesus on top of all the evil the enemy wanted to do to me that day. It was Jesus over everything for me and that is how I set up my day. Set up your day with Jesus in the framework of your day. Be determined to hold on to Him all day. He is with you all the time. Recognize that. Celebrate that. Don’t let the “morning sickness” get in the way. Let Jesus get in the way of everything that is negative. 

Did I feel better right away? I didn’t but I was able to see that my spirit was getting stronger and when your spirit is strong, you are halfway there. The other half is  for you to persevere and to maintain that positive attitude. The Lord will help you. Give Him what you have and He will meet you halfway. I stuck to my guns by speaking Jesus over every thought. I knew that it was important for me to remember that He has authority over everything. He can do all things and He helps us in all things. “Jesus over everything” was my motto for that day. It truly is a lifestyle and a habit we ought to develop. He reigns. He is omnipotent. He is almighty. No weapon formed against you shall conquer when you have Jesus. Use His name against the enemy. Use His name against the fear and the pain. Use His name against the bad feelings and the emotions. Be relentless. Let it be Jesus all day. He will carry you. He will bless you. He will make you a blessing to others. He will get you through anything. He will give you peace through anything. He will help you get up in the morning and you will have the best day with Him. Let it all be about Jesus and He will walk with you all day long. Nothing will harm you and nothing will win against you. You can do this, friend. Greater is the Lord that is in you than the devil that is against you. Keep your hopes up! Jesus over everything! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

Hold on to the hope of the world

As long as you have Jesus, you have hope. Hope will never die. Hope came back from the dead. You might think that all hope is lost because you are in a bad situation but hope is alive and well. Jesus is the hope you need today. Go to Him and see what He has to say. If He were to appear to you today and talk to you, He would say that there is still hope. He would tell you that He died not only for your sins but for your hope. He died so that your hope would remain alive. He took all the problems of the world including yours and He put them to death so you could find life in Him. He is the way, the truth and the life and He is blowing life into your desperate situation now as you are reading this message. He is talking to you and smiling at you. He is encouraging you and reminding you that with Him, nothing is impossible. He is rebuking the lies of the enemy and the doubts. He is calling you to rise up and walk. Walk in faith. Leave the doubts behind. Leave the desperation behind. Leave the fears behind. Jesus is standing by your side and He is promising a new day, a new hope and a new future.

When things don’t go well, we tend to predict a bad future for ourselves. The fears we have are usually about the future. We put ourselves in a box where there is no way out. We think of how bad things are going to get. We can’t count on anything good. We believe the outcome of our present circumstances is going to be very negative. God has a different take on the matter. For Him, hope is present and it is available. What He wants us to do is to draw nearer to Him and tap into His love and His peace. He has all we need and He can give us the hope we long for. He is the hope. When I am not doing well, I get a big dose of Jesus. I turn to Him. I talk to Him. I let Him comfort me and I fix my eyes on Him. Fix your eyes on Jesus and He will fix your situation. Fix your eyes on Jesus and you will see a rebirth of hope everywhere. The One who conquered the world conquered your biggest trials. There is hope, friend! There is a lot of hope.

Jesus came to save the world and to preach good news. His good news is accompanied by the hope of a better day. Things might look bad now but they are going to get better. Jesus guarantees that. Take His word for it. Things are going to improve beautifully when you rely on Him. Put your hope in Jesus, the hope of the world. Let the hope in you speak for you. Don’t give a voice to the doubts and to the fears. Let Jesus in you talk about what’s going on. When you give Him the microphone, you will realize that every word that comes out of your mouth is a word of hope. You can’t turn to Jesus,  lean on Him and not ooze positivity and joy. His joy is going to hit you and take you on a journey of hope. The joy of the Lord is your strength. You get all the power you need from the Lord. Power to make it today and power to make it tomorrow. Tomorrow is bright. Jesus will make it shine. Don’t get discouraged. Hold on to Jesus, the hope of the world. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

The God of encouragement

I love that God is so encouraging. I couldn’t get through the day without His daily encouragement. What I do is load up on encouragement first thing in the morning. I start every day in prayer and part of my prayer time is meditative. I just sit still and wait. I wait on the Lord and enjoy His presence. For some reason, 5 am is the best time for me to be in prayer and to receive messages of encouragement and wisdom. There are days when I get waves of hope and I ride them high and proud. There are days when all I can think of during that prayer time is Jesus. My mind gets saturated with Him and I am extremely focused on Him. There are other times when I can’t say a word because His words flow so fast and they are filled with encouragement.He gets my undivided attention. What I hear the most in the morning is, “Do not worry and do not fear.” The Lord is so encouraging and His words hit me like a brick from Heaven. He makes me so joyful. He knows what to say and how to say it. He knows what I need to hear. He knows what to come and most of the time His words are about events to come. I keep them in my heart and I get ready to use them when needed. The truth is I need God’s encouragement all the time. I know that you do too, friend. Find a way to hear from God. Find out what your “5 am” looks like. Put yourself in a position to receive God’s encouragement.

I have been spending more time reading my Bible in the evening. I go from chapter to chapter and I pause to let the knowledge sink in. I also take time to pray when I am reading. I pray before I start reading and when I am reading. The Holy Spirit can reveal a lot to us when we rely on His guidance and His interpretation. A lot of what comes out of my Bible time is encouragement. My Bible is my preferred source of encouragement after the Holy Spirit. They both work together. The Lord is His Word and when we communicate with the Holy Spirit, He tells us what we ought to know and He points out lessons, suggestions, recommendations and nuggets of wisdom. I get so excited when I dive into the Word of God after charging my spirit with the hope of the Holy Spirit working in me. Praying to Him is what starts the process. I suggest you always pray before you enter the Word. You will find yourself in the house of peace of the Lord where wisdom lives and serenity is supreme. Go into the house of the Lord and you will be very encouraged every time. There are no situations in your life that the Lord can’t help you with. He will encourage you through the worst times so you don’t lose hope. Trust Him!

God is always encouraging. He is never going to discourage you and to bring you down by screaming judgement an condemnation at you. He is there to motivate you and to gently push you in the right direction. When things are not going well, things are always good according to the Lord. He knows how to point out the good that is going on even when you don’t think that anything is good. How does He do it? For Him no situation is hopeless. Nothing is helpless. Nothing is impossible. Nothing is broken forever. Nothing is irreversible so He always has hope. What He does is rub His hope off you when He encourages you. Ask for encouragement every day. Look for it by isolating some time to be with God. Look for it by trusting that the Lord has what you need. Look for it in the Word of God. Look for it by believing that God loves you enough to encourage you. God has the words of encouragement you need for every day. Start your day with Him. Start your day open to His voice. He has a lot to tell you and it is all very good. Stay encouraged! The Lord is always with you. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

He must become greater and greater

I love how John talked about Jesus and how he put himself aside so that Jesus would get all the attention. People believed that John might be the Messiah but John insisted that the One who was to come was bigger than him. John was sent to tell the world about the light that was to come. Jesus was that light. John was just a witness who knew that Jesus was Lord. He described Him as Someone who would come after him and who was greater than he was. I can only imagine how people hung onto John’s every word and they might even have been fascinated by him thinking he was a special messenger from God. However, John remained humble and he didn’t change his narrative. He promoted Jesus and exalted Him before men. Even before people saw Him in the flesh. John understood that the Lord had to be lifted up and introduced as the Most Important One. No matter how people perceived him and how much they fed his ego by comparing him to great men of God, John still said he had to decrease so that the Lord could increase. One Bible translation says “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.” What a great attitude! What a great perspective! What a great mindset! I strongly believe that we should follow in John’s steps and walk the way he walked. Walk a humble walk where Jesus increases and we decrease. We should be of the same mindset and do all we can so that Christ in us is bigger than ourselves.

Today I want to encourage you to let Jesus become greater and greater in your life. I want to encourage you to decrease so He can increase. How can you do that? You can make Jesus your priority. You can listen to Him more than you listen to your mind and to your own desires. Let the desires that go against Him die. Don’t nurture them and don’t give them a voice. Stifle the desires that separate you from God. Put your flesh under and let your spirit connect and be in sync with the Holy Spirit. There are daily battles within. There is the battle of the mind and the battle of the flesh. They are intertwined and related. In the Bible we are told to renew our minds and we are informed that our flesh is weak but our spirit is willing. We need to focus on the spiritual and diminish the acts of the flesh. Friend, your spirit longs to see Jesus lifted up. Your spirit wants to honor Jesus. Your spirit wants to give Him first place and repress your flesh. Give yourself a chance to have a stronger spiritual life. Be led by the Spirit of truth. Resist your flesh. Fight against the carnal desires and side with the Lord.

Becoming a fan of Jesus is not a bad thing at all. It is highly recommended and it is a great way to let Him become greater and greater. Many people have all sorts of idols. Many people would do anything to meet their idols. We can meet Jesus every day. We can pray and talk to Him every day. We can put Him on a pedestal and invite Him into our lives every day. He will only become as big in us as we allow Him to be. It is our job to make time for Him and to reverence Him. He won’t force Himself into our days. Our days can be so much better when He is the center of them. I have been learning how to incorporate Jesus into every part of my day and it has been a great journey. He helps me see people differently. He helps me love more. He helps me listen more. He helps me serve more. The more we walk in love, the more we serve others and the more we yield to the directives of the Holy Spirit,  the greater Jesus will be in our lives. Let’s decrease. Let’s increase Jesus every day. Let’s give Him first place and let’s take His Word seriously. He must become greater and greater so we can become less and less. May God bless you and protect you and remember He will always love you!

God can fix your problems

I was getting nuggets of wisdom yesterday and it felt like the Lord was gently bombarding me with words of encouragement that deeply touched me. He spoke about how He can change things instantly. He doesn’t always do it that way but He can. He can change our lives in an instant. He can erase our heavy past and give us His peace and hope. He can reverse the course of time and put us on a better path. One of the nuggets talked about how God can accomplish more in one minute than the devil can ruin in a lifetime. Think about that! Our God is that good. He has the power to do anything. What He does and what He gives is always very amazing. Even when He seems to be working slowly in our lives, He chooses the slower path because it is the best way for us. He knows what He is doing all the time. We are the ones who need to get on His page and respect His pace. God can reverse the worst situations and heal the worst wounds. He can make us smile again and He can make us hope again. Today I want to encourage you to trust God to reverse your current situation. Whatever you are going through right now can be fixed. God can fix all your problems and give you a better life. Trust Him. He is excellent at what He does.

God can fix your problems. He can! He said, “Come to Me those of you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” When you have problems, the first thing God wants to do for you is give you peace. It is very difficult to function without peace and to have a strong spiritual balance when we are weary and burdened. With God, rest comes first because He knows how crucial it is for us. If you are facing problems today, go to God and ask for peace. Ask Him to give you rest. Unload your burdens on Him and let Him carry them. You are not supposed to be carrying these burdens. You are not supposed to fight these battles alone. You are not supposed to live in fear and be weak. You can have strength and you can have the ability to go through whatever you are going through with peace and confidence. Confide in God and He will cover you and bless you. Remember, God will fight your battles. He will take care of you and He will reverse your situation. Don’t do it all alone. You need Him. He is there for you!

God can truly fix any problem you might have. Think of your problems as the Red Sea. They can appear to be gigantic and too much for you to handle. God can still part the seas and He is going to do just that for you. You are like the Israelites. You have enemies. Your problems are your enemies but God will save you from them. He will give you a path to go through your trials without a drop of that troubled sea falling on you. The Egyptians might be trying to attack you now but God is on your side. He is going to fight your battles for you. Find peace in Him. Trust Him. Declare that He is acting on your side. He can change everything just like that. It doesn’t matter how much the enemy has ruined your life. God will fix everything and He will give you even more than you had. He will fix and improve your life. He is that kind of God. He is the God of miracles and nothing can stop Him. Don’t be intimidated by the problems before you. God is with you. Something great is going to happen to you thanks to the Lord. Rejoice. Stay in peace. Stay strong. God is going to win and His love will prevail. Stay encouraged! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

Out of this world

There is a warmth out of this world. There is peace out of this world. There is hope out of this world. There is a joy that is out of this world. There is power out of this world. There is love out of this world. There is a truth out of this world. There is freedom out of this world. There is Jesus. Jesus is out of this world and He is also everywhere in this world. Know that you can count on the power that is beyond this world anytime. Know that you can count on the Love that is beyond this world. It is extraordinary. It is beyond your wildest dreams and yet it is real and it is here. Count on Jesus every day. Count on Jesus in every circumstance. Count on His love and on His power. Count on the peace that can set your heart ablaze and that can burn all worries and doubt. Count on the joy that is your strength and that can help you face any trials and tribulations. Count on the best of the best, the Lord of Lords, the King of kings. Count on the One who is out of this world and who can impact your world anytime you turn to Him. 

If I rely on this world to bail me out of my misery, I get disappointed. I fall flat on my face and getting up is not easy. If I rely on Jesus, my Savior, anything that is too hard in this world is not a difficulty anymore. I can’t find peace in this world. I can find a temporary fix but Jesus is my peace. Jesus is the peacemaker who soothes my soul and who keeps my heart warm. I don’t look for answers in worldly paths. My answers are on a divine path I walk on with Jesus. I have made up my mind that the Lord was my Savior and His Spirit is my comforter. They are above all things on the earth and they carry me and help me. The Holy Spirit is more powerful than anyone and anything in this world. I call Him my Comforter out of this world. He is more meaningful than any theory and any doctrine I know. He is more impactful than any religious tradition I know. God cares about you and me friend and He will do things out of this world for us so that we see changes in our worlds. Don’t wait for this world to give you the wisdom and the knowledge you need to get by. All good wisdom comes from above. Your supernatural God will make sure you are led correctly. God is going to take you places that are out of this world, friend!

God’s peace that surpasses all understanding is on your side. You have access to it and you can enjoy it any time in Jesus’ name. It is more powerful than the serenity of this world. It calms the biggest storms and it keeps you still even when the devil is wreaking havoc in your life. God’s joy that is your strength is also at your fingertip. Put your hands together and pray that you can experience His peace. Put your hands together and praise Him. The joy will come when you celebrate the Lord. It will come and inhabit your life. It will come and give you power to handle anything in this life. God is out of this world but He is also in this world like I said. Expect His supernatural power to influence your natural world. Expect His love and mercy to heal you and to bless you. Expect His resurrection power to destroy the works of the enemy on your journey. The cross still stands today as a symbol of death. Death to your sins, to your diseases and to your suffering. Count on the extraordinary power of the cross. Count on God. Out of this world is where your blessings are coming from and they are going to touch your world. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
