A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

Go Get It
Years ago I was told to take off my running shoes and to stop running away from what God told me to do. A man of God stopped me in my tracks and told me to start doing what I was supposed to be doing and what the Lord was going to do as a result. I had gotten such confirmations several times before and after that, to which I am finally doing what I'm supposed to be doing -- blogging, publishing books (primarily ebooks), and I will start speaking more to people about the goodness of God; what He's done in my life; and what He will also do in your life. If you've been coming to my blog long enough, you are pretty familiar to my testimony and the goodness of Jesus.
So, why did I title this blog post, "Go Get It"? Well, I think it's pretty clear, don't you? It's about taking off your running shoes if you must, and sitting still long enough to hear what God says about your next move. I can assure you He will confirm what is already in your heart to do and He will show you what to do next, then next, then next. No, He won't give you the complete road map, but He will get you started in the right direction and He will continue to direct you if you accept His lead. Remember what I often say, 'yes He's God, but He gives us free will, which is the choice to be chosen.' I hope your choice is to get whatever it is He has already stored up for you. Go get it, because that will be the only way you will really be able to help yourself and those who want what you have to give them. You will know that based on the Godly motives that live inside you and your past.
Let God use you to be a blessing to others. He knows what He wants for you. "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11). Thus, His word to the people who were exiled to Babylon still hold true for us today. Again, what has He told you to do?

She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" and Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he." Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
