He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6). That's what Paul was saying to the church and to the people of Philippi and as far as I'm concerned, he's still talking to us today. It is written that we, the righteous, shall live by faith, right? That's Habakkuk 2:4. Then, the work the Lord began in us -- by His grace -- should give us the confidence to continuously live for Him. And when we do that, then everything will line up for us. Am I saying everything will be perfect and flawless? No, I'm saying that God will ensure His will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven for us. Isn't that awesome? Yes, He will do what He said what He said He would in your life and in my life. You have to be confident of that very thing -- that He began a good work in you and He's going to finish it. 
Paul was encouraging and praying for the people, because He knew the power of…

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you

“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul" (3 John 1:2). 
As 3 John 1:2 conveys, I pray things go well for you, for your health, and your soul -- your living body, your will, and your emotions. I pray you will get over every hill or mountain, out of every valley you may find yourself in, every fire that seems as though it's consuming you (although it's not). I pray that all goes well for you. If you're down, I'm praying right now in Jesus name that you will look up and be up. I pray for renewed faith right now that things will be well with you. And change will be immediate.
If pray that you're up, you will stay up. I pray for seasons of lasting abundance and for longer seasons of harvest. That would be just awesome, wouldn't it? At any rate, I want all to be well within your entire being. Look up towards heaven and talk to God right now. It doesn't matter what state of mind or body…

"I have set my rainbow in the clouds", says the Lord God

“I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life" (Genesis 9:13-15).
Rainbows have a powerful meaning for us. God flooded the earth because people weren't living right and the only righteous person He could find was Noah. You probably know the rest of the story...Noah builds the ark and he and his family are spared, as well as, two of every kind of animal. The rainbow is a new start and it's also God's proof that He wouldn't flood the earth again. So, when I look somewhere over the rainbow I am reminded of the goodness of God. I am reminded of His covenant -- His agreement -- His promise over our lives. "Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radi…

You're not alone, someone else went through it or is going through it now

Do you know you're not alone? Others have already gone through what you are going through, so they feel you. Or others are going through it right now and they feel you. You are still special and God is still on the throne. Yes, Jesus is still Lord and when we trust in Him with all our heart, and not rely on our own understanding, He will bring us through yet again. Proverbs 3:5 says, to "trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding."
When I was going through a dark lonely time of losing two of my loved-ones on the same day during the same year, I was in despair and in pain. Yet this is what I know. I knew even back then that God was with me and He would ensure I got through it. And I got through it with Him mercy. That's why I'm here writing these words to you. I know that when we are in the valley and it seems the water is swallowing us whole, God is saying, 'I got you daughter, I got you son, and I will never leave you.&…

You're going to make it through, so speak life to that situation

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. I have great news for you. I've come to tell you once again, you're going to make it through, so speak life to that situation. That's right, Proverbs 4:10-12 says "accept my words, that the years of your life may be many. I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble." That's what the Lord is saying to you. Uh huh, that's what He's saying to all of us. It doesn't matter what you're going through, keep looking forward. You're going to make it through. You really will. You're going to make it through.
Continue to say, "I'm going to make it through" over and over again. That's what I had to tell myself when I was going through a dark time and if God was there for me, especially in the midnight hour, He will be there for you too. Believe it and speak …

Do you know that when we move, God moves?

Do you know that when we move, God moves? Yes, sometimes He's simply waiting for us to make a move of faith on that thing we've been wanting to get done. We have to move and operate in faith. Hebrews 11:6 says, "and without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." And James 2:14-16 speaks to faith without works being dead.
What do you want God to do in your life? How do you want Him to intervene in the desires of your heart? He will definitely act on your behalf. Yet we have to keep in mind that we have to do our part. We have to put some elbow grease behind those words and behind those scriptures we quote, right? Yes, speaking life over our circumstances is awesome, but there must be more that comes with it. In other words if we "see" it and believe it, then the proof will be in the actions we put behind our words. It's also about writing the vi…

Believe that what's on the other side is worth getting

Do you know that what God promised you, is still there? Oh yes, it's still there. It's just that you can't see it in the natural. You can only see it with your spiritual eyes. You see, that's how faith works. It's the substance or confidence of things we hope for and the evidence, assurance, certainty, and proof of things that we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 is proof of that. So, when you start getting down, as we all do from time to time, about things that God promised you -- things God showed you, but they haven't been manifested yet? Know that what you want manifested in your life will still happen. It will come to pass. It will show itself in your life. But this is the thing though: it will only show itself if you do not give up and lose hope. That's it. Don't lose hope, because it's taking too long. You can't give up. You have to stay with it. What else do you have? Faith is sometimes all we have to get to the things that God has for us to get…
