Freedom – All Things New


Hello Peeps!

Today, I’d like to post a song by Travis Greene called All Things New. Yesterday, I had a bit of drama with my car not being able to start. I took the car with the help of my dad to the mechanic and found out that the starter was the issue. The Mechanic was able to deal with the starter plug issue and my car was able to start again. I needed to have this fixed ASAP because it’s dangerous to drive on a highway and then all of a sudden have the car stop at 100km/hr that could lead to an accident. It was a bit of money to deal with but it was worth it. The car was fixed and it was as good as new.

So why am I telling you this story? I feel like without God and a relationship with Jesus, we can be like my car and drive like we don’t need a tune-up or fixing and just travel through life assuming that nothing can ever go wrong in our lives if we do things “our way”. There were warning signs initially when I was driving this car that there was something wrong with it but I don’t know much about cars to know what the issue is so I had to go to someone who could pinpoint what that was in order to get it fixed.

We too are like that… In some way, the issues in our heart are areas we can identify, such as hurt, pain, anger, anxiety etc etc. Sometimes we bottle up these emotions until we need a real tune-up from the Lord to show us that we need to stop and analyze our problems and issues. We can’t be like my car and guess what’s wrong with it when we can go to the Lord that is able to show us what needs fixing. He is the Master mechanic of our lives if you really think about it. In many cases, it’s our hearts that need fixing. We can try and do life running on “empty” or we can go to the Way Maker who is able to show us how we can feel fulfilled and function in the best way possible in our lives since the Joy of the Lord is our True Strength.

Nehemiah 8:10 [Full Chapter]
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Psalm 89:15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.

Be Free!

We can always make mistakes along our roads in life, but we shouldn’t forget that we have the most amazing GPS (Godly Positioning System) in our lives, and He happens to be Jesus Christ. He can change the course of our lives so that we don’t do life alone and travel through perilous paths with no direction. The question is, do you want God to show you were you Ought to go? The mistakes of yesterday won’t stop Him from loving you today and forever. He still wants to change the course of your life and lead you in the Right Direction if you just submit your will to Gods.

James 4:7Humility Cures Worldliness ] Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

I pray that as you listen to this song, you will practice some level of introspection to look inside your heart and be honest with yourself and come to the conclusion that you are indeed in need of the Savior, Jesus Christ. God wants you to learn to reach out to Him in any time of need and to learn to put your trust in the right place. Put your Trust in the Lord and He will lead you in the right direction, Amen.

Proverbs 3:5-6 [Full Chapter]
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

I pray that this song by Travis Greene blesses your Spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

The Breaker is Our Maker


Hello Peeps!

I just had to post this song by Travis Greene called The Breaker. This song is ringing strongly in my spirit as I think of how sovereign our God is. Sometimes as children we can be petulant and self-entitled for things and simply assume that we deserve everything when God already gave us His best, which was His only Begotten Son Jesus, who came down from Heaven and became a man that dwelt among us, taught us about the love of God, was bruised and shamed for our transgressions, was nailed on a cross for our sake and still loved us as He died on that cross.

Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Micah 2:13 Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 “The [a]breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them].
They will break out, pass through the gate and go out;
So their King goes on before them,
The Lord at their head.”

What a miracle it was that Jesus, Our Savior, resurrected for us to show us that death has no victory over our lives. But think of this…the victory Jesus gave us, wasn’t just about death itself, it was His victory over all SIN. Jesus defeated the power of SIN in our lives that causes us to die spiritually and leave us separated from the Love of God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

When I listen to this song, I think of the greatness of God, and how He takes our mistakes, or failures, our shortcomings and tells us that even in or Brokenness, He has the power to use it and make us brand new by redeeming us from the brokenness that shame brings us. God can break the shame and restore us to be in right standing again in Him. So this message is for everyone… because all have sinned and have fallen short of the Glory of God, but we can take heart, because He has overcome the World of sin for us all.

Romans 3:23 [Full Chapter]
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

John 16:33 [Full Chapter]
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

We can stand tall and Know that Jesus Christ is God and that He loves us with an everlasting love. We need to embrace the Redeemer, because it is by His Stripes that we are healed and made whole again.

Jeremiah 31:3 [Full Chapter]
The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.

Isaiah 54:5 – For your Maker is your husband, The Lord of hosts is His name; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.

Job 19:25 – For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth;

Psalm 19:14 – Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

So when you listen to this song, just remember that no one is perfect but through Christ, we become perfected in Jesus Name, Amen! I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

You Changed My Name


Hello Peeps!

I have this amazing song by Jaye Thomas & Laura Hackett Park called Family. It’s amazing that when a child is adopted into a family, they take on the name of the family that they are adopted into. Likewise, when we take on the identity of Christ and become “Born Again” through water baptism to take on the identity as a “Christ-Believer” by becoming a Christian, we change our names in a way in that we have now become adopted Sons and Daughters of the New Covenant of Christ’s blood and have become Sons and Daughters of the Living God. Salvation comes when we choose to believe that Jesus Christ is indeed the Truth, the Life and the Way:

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Let’s also look at the first chapter of Ephesians:

Ephesians 1 (NIV)

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,

To God’s holy people in Ephesus,[a] the faithful in Christ Jesus:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he lovesIn him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

11 In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

Thanksgiving and Prayer

15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

When you read these Verses of Scriptures, just remember that when you were once far away from God, it didn’t matter what mess you were in or how bad you thought you were that you didn’t think anyone could forgive you let alone God to forgive you. God loves you with an everlasting love that He still wants us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Don’t accept the identity that the World labels you… some people may call you a loser, a failure, a dunce, a weakling, a has-been or just a nothing that shouldn’t have even been born. Do not go by the World’s definition of your worth. You are God’s prized possession and a great inheritance. You are worth dying for and worth resurrecting for and that is why God wants us to understand that your worth is not built on how the “World” defines you. It is built on who He has called you to be, and that is to be a Child of God. Remember that Jesus did not go on the cross in vain… He did that for you and me so that we could be part of His Family as Children of the Most High God.

John 1:11-13 (NKJV)

11 He came to His [a]own, and His [b]own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [c]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

I pray that as you listen to this song, may it bless your Spirit today. God Bless you everybody! 🙂

The Shattered Grave


Hello Peeps! Happy Resurrection Sunday!

I hope y’all had an amazing Sunday service this weekend. Honestly, there is just so much craziness going on out there with what happened to the Notre Dame Cathederal in flames this past week and right when we are celebrating The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, for this Easter Sunday weekend. May we keep everyone in prayer as we go through each week in the Lord. I feel like there is so much shifting in this season that we’re in, that we as Christians need to understand that the times are changing rapidly and quickly in that I feel that the Lord will quicken our Spirits to be more vigilant and sharpened to recognize the seasons and times we are living in. The days grow evil with strange occurrences, and tragic events concurring in different parts of the world at seemingly odd times, that we cannot afford to be complacent. We must remain vigilant as the word says:

1 Peter 5:8 [Full Chapter]
Be soberbe vigilantbecause your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Despite this, the Lord also gives us encouragement to remember the following:

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”John 10:28-30 NKJV

We need to know who we are in Christ and whose we are in Christ Jesus. Our identity is riding on the fact that we are the salt and light of the Earth. We are the Change that the World needs to see…but “do we add any flavour in the way that we live and do life?”… is the question. I believe that in Celebrating what the Lord Jesus did for us at Calvary, we need to remember why He came in the first place… and that was to restore our identity as Sons of God.

Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

The Earth is groaning as tragedies take place, but the Lord is waiting on us to arise. We are the answers that we seek. So for this Resurrection weekend, meditate on the fact that the Lord Jesus didn’t die and resurrect for us in Vain. He did it so that we would no longer be captives to sin and we would be empowered to greater things in His name. The windows of Heaven opened for us when He resurrected for us, so give God the highest praise you have in your heart to Him today. I pray that this song sung by Deitrick Haddon called He Carried the Cross For Me blesses and ministers to you today as you think about the Goodness of Our Lord Jesus Christ. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

There is No Bondage!


Hello Peeps!

It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been so busy trying to move out of my apartment and into my new house that I’ve finally got internet setup and I still have some unpacking to do. Also, I had lost my bag in a shop yesterday in that I went home forgetting that I had set my bag with all my belongings…my purse, my IDs etc… I was livid. I had been shopping with my sister yesterday running errands at various stores and getting things for the house that I left my bag somewhere in one of the stores we have visited. I searched and searched and couldn’t find it. We drove to all the stores we visited that day and still couldn’t find it. I was TOTALLY freaking out!

We eventually gave up and I went home feeling deflated and discouraged, but my twin sister comforted me and we both decided to pray in agreement to God to have my bag returned with nothing missing, nothing broken or stolen for the next day. For the past few days, the Holy Spirit has been telling me the same thing “Ask Me and you Shall Receive”. Can you believe that today, (which was the next day somebody!) we went to the store and my bag was found! I had to give a shout of praise unto God for that! Nothing was missing and nothing was stolen. I was beyond relieved…I was in full praise unto God and that is why I want to post this song for today by Jubilee Worship called No Bondage.

The song is pretty inspirational in that when you think of how some of us were before knowing Christ, you begin to realize the type of bondages that remained in your life and in your mind where you placed limitations of who you could potentially be if you operated at your full potential.

God Breaks Every Chain in your Life that limits you from achieving your full potential

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

It is true that there are people you can break barriers without knowing God, and accomplish extraordinary things, but it really is God that complete’s a man or woman at the end of the day no matter what one is able to accomplish with their talents. Some people can gain the whole world filled with pleasures, riches, fame and Glory and still fill emotionally incapacitated and empty inside despite having everything. Think of the celebrities who commit suicide despite appearing to have everything that others would want. Why would one choose to kill themselves when they are wealthy and can have the things that they want at the tips of their fingers? It just goes to show you that wealth and prestige is not what completes a man or woman’s soul, it’s GOD PEOPLE!

Mark 8:36 [Full Chapter]
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

Psalm 14 ] [ For the director of music. Of David. ] The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

For me, God is everything. People may try to sway you away from believing in Him for their own various reasons, but I’ve encountered so many supernatural experiences of His presence in my life that I cannot deny that He exists. God Exists people…and maybe you have an issue with that…but it would profit you to know God is real and alive and that He really really loves you even when you aren’t perfect. God’s love for you endures forever…so I pray that you seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him.

Psalm 136 [Full Chapter]
Thanksgiving to God for His Enduring Mercy ] Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy enduresforever. Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy enduresforever. Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy enduresforever

So when you listen to t his song, I want people to think about how grateful you are that you know God for those that believe in Him, and for those that are sitting on the fence about whether they want to follow Jesus, think about what it is that you are doing and where you are right now…. Ask yourself — Do you feel empty on the inside? Do you have all the things you’ve ever wanted and if you do, does it truly fulfill you? Do you know Jesus or do you really believe that He doesn’t exist? Are you content with believing that God does not exist in your life? Have you ever wondered in your life’s journey…What if I’m wrong…what if God does exist? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

My prayer is that for those sitting on the fence of their belief system, I pray that you will come to know the Lord and click on my Salvation Prayer page located at the top banner of my post. God is indeed REAL and He cares and loves you unconditionally. I pray that you will believe that and that may this song bless your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

Holy Ground – Throne Room Song


Hello Peeps!

I know, I know, it’s been a while since I posted on here. What can I say, I’ve been really busy lately. It’s just the beginning of the year and I can tell you that after I released the prophetic word for 2019, it literally, has started to operate in my life. There has been intense shifts in my life with respect to the legal department that I support at my work place and shifts in authority, shifts in relationships, finances etc. Like I said, to much that is given, much is required of you. If you are believing God to do something huge in your life, then my suggestion to you is to put everything you desire into prayer, and increase your personal life with worship unto God. The more you worship Him, the more you will see and hear from God.

HOLY SPIRIT MOVE!

I feel like lately, I can hear the Holy Spirit loudly and clearly to the degree that when He tells me not to do something, I don’t. And when He instructs me to do something, I do it through His leading. You cannot obey someone you don’t hear or pay attention to in this world, so the same thing applies when it comes to God. If you don’t pay attention to the Lord when He leads you to do something, and go against what He has instructed you to do, then don’t expect things to go your way smoothly if you are belligerent as an individual. HUMILITY is and will always be the KEY to getting your prayers answered.

“Me, Humble? Whatever lol”

Romans 12:16 -Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

James 4:10 [Full Chapter]
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

My Prayer is that this year, those that are seeking great things to shift in their lives will increase in their personal relationship with the Lord. The plans God has for us hasn’t changed at all in that it still is the Jeremiah 29:11 Plan for your life:

Jeremiah 29:11 [Full Chapter]
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

The question is, do we want to be a part of God’s plan as He fulfill’s our own plans and desires?

We really have to be real with ourselves and be honest with ourselves when answering that question. Remember, the theme of this year still remains this:

To Much that is Given, Much will be Required of You. 

Are you prepared to be a part of God’s plan after He blesses you this year? Ask yourselves this question and consider whether or not you want to align with God’s purpose for your life which is to increase in the harvest of saving souls this year. I pray that as you listen to this song called Throne Room Song feat May Angeles & Ryan Kennedy, may it minister to your Spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

Worthy: Glory Fill The Heavens


Hello Peeps!

I just had to share this awesome song by Elevation Worship called Worthy. As with all songs I put on this blog, this obviously sounds amazing on surround sound. I particularly love the message of the song. God really is worthy of all our praise. Some people like to worship God when things are going well in their lives, but the true test of worship comes when things aren’t always golden in our lives.


When we suffer in silence, when we endure trials, do we have the strength to give God all our praise?

csThink of the sufferings that Job went through and continued to remain faithful and still had the heart to worship. I think that the authenticity of worship for a Christian comes when you’ve done all to stand through each test and still have a praise left in your heart to sing a song of praise unto God despite all the hardships you may have gone through. I remember enduring a year and a half of rehabilitation after being in hospital for about 6 months recovering from a sickness that attacked my mind (encephalitis). In particular, this sickness attacked my ability to remember things – my short-term memories. Though I forgot things regularly during my rehabilitation experience, I somehow never forgot God which I believe my family thought that was a miracle. It’s one thing to forget what you did a few minutes ago, but never forgetting God has been and will always be a blessing in my life.

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

The Lord is the One who Restores, Heals, Recovers all that we lose as part of our identity. When you have Jesus as part of your identity, no matter what life throws at you, the Lord is your redeemer. He is the One that recovers all that is taken away. That’s why I have to give Him the highest praise for what He has been doing in my life. So as you listen to this song, remember that the Lord’s name is worthy of all our praise no matter what it is that you are going through. If you simply remember this One important fact, no matter what storms of life you endure, God is the One Who is able to Recover all, so don’t forget that and Give God the Highest Praise, in Jesus Name, Amen! I pray that this song blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂


Almost There – Don’t Give Up!


Hello Peeps!

I just wanted to post this song by Jai called Almost There. Some of you are running a race in your life that maybe long winded, with winding roads, bumps along the way, where you may even pass through roads that give you diversions that may cause your GPS (Godly-Positioning-System) to re-calibrate just to get you moving to where it is you want to go, etc. This road that you are traveling on is called LIFE. Life has a tendency of providing you with many obstacles and hurdles that you’ll have to learn to jump over, sink or swim. Those that endure to the end are the ones that get the prize, so don’t look at those that are competing with you to your left or to your right in your life. Focus on what’s ahead of you as your prize.


The race is not for the swift or the strong, it is for those who are able to endure to the end, so don’t be distracted and focus on where you ought to be going.


See the source image

Horses with Blinders in a Horse Race: They can only focus on what’s ahead of them and not at what’s to their “left” or to their “right”. This is how we ought to be moving in our lives. Living without distractions that steer us away from where we ought to go. And that would be to fulfilling our God-Given Purpose in Life — whatever that might be.


See the source imageIs it a wonder why in a horse racing track, horses are placed with blinders that are on their heads so that they don’t get distracted by what’s to their left or right sides? All they have to focus on is looking straight ahead and focus on what’s ahead of them as their goal. Unfortunately, we as people, don’t have such physical blinders in our lives to keep us focused on the goal ahead of us because we can see everything that’s around us that can keep us distracted, and that’s why it takes discipline to remain focused on what you need to do rather than looking at what is around you diverting your attention from your God-given purpose and goal to succeed in life.

  • Do what the Lord has put in your heart to do and don’t focus so much on where you currently are right now in life in comparison to others.

That’s just a distraction for you to get sidetracked into a “poor-me” and “woe-is-me” attitude if you sit alongside the bench of comparisons.

  • Do not be a copy-cat and recognize that you were born to be original.
  • Do not focus on your supposed “limitations” and focus on your God-given possibilities and abilities.

Matthew 19:26

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”


But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”

See the source image


When you focus on, and accept your uniqueness, you will be effective in maximizing  your God-given talents and abilities to do extraordinary things, including, things that haven’t been done before! I won’t like and will tell you that:

  • You may encounter set-backs, draw-backs, hindrances to your progress, but if God is for you, no one and nothing can stop you, so keep moving forward without excuses.
  • The Road to endurance is no easy road to travel on, but we can all persevere if we maintain our focus towards the goal – which is to SUCCEED.
  • Appreciate the naysayers, critics and doubters that you encounter in your journey of life. Encountering them just means that they haven’t seen nothing yet, so Carry On my friends! 🙂  

Running man


Romans 8:31-39 [Full Chapter]

God’s Everlasting Love ] What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. …

See the source imageI remember how it took me 2 years to recover my memory loss issue from the sickness I endured (Encephalitis – a viral infection in the brain that causes short-term memory loss). The road to recovery was a grueling test of endurance, patience, and a major attitude adjustment for me to realize that grumbling about the process wouldn’t change anything.


The only thing I could change was my attitude.

I lost my previous job in the process of my recovery, but God gave me a new one just in time. So what I learned from all this was that circumstances maybe thrust on you in an unexpected way, but it’s our attitude at the end of it all that will determine how you will endure. No one want’s to experience setbacks, pain and hardships; however, as Christians, we have to know that such things will happen in our lives to test our overall Characters.


John 16:33 [Full Chapter]

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

You will only know who you are on the basis of how you endure each trial that you face. So we shouldn’t marvel at those that are seemingly ahead of us right now… because you don’t know what they had to endure in order to get to where they are right now. There’s not point in being jealous of another person’s success if we can’t even maintain the character required to enjoy the rewards that come after enduring the pain to achieving success. Let us be humble and remember to include God in all of the plans you have in your life, Amen!


Overall, my main message is: “DO NOT GIVE UP!” because you’re so close to success that you can almost taste it so DO NOT GIVE UP! You’re ALMOST THERE! AMEN! 🙂 I pray that this song blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂


God Only Knows…


Hello Peeps!

I know I haven’t posted much lately. I must say being back in the workforce has me remembering the need to sleep early just to get up and go to work the next morning. I am so looking forward to my long weekend right about now 🙂 . Today, I heard this song by for King & Country called God Only Knows. I feel like this song is my jam right about now. I feel that it’ll minister to you today. Sometimes when you think no one else understands you, just remember that God is the One who is able to understand you better than anyone else.

I get the feeling that people are entering into a transitional period of their lives as we hit the end of the third quarter of this year. Some of you are probably noticing the signs that something is causing you to feel the need to shift into something different, or probably to close a door that needs to be shut closed, whether it be a wrong opportunity, a dead-end relationship, or even if it were to move into another destination, be it local or international in scope. The signs are everywhere for you to make a decision but some people may refuse to acknowledge the signs that it’s time for you to make a change. You can only embrace something new if you’re willing to let go of what is past and in the past. You can’t bring old baggage to a new destination, so assess what is holding you back from moving forward when opportunities are knocking at our door right now. Can you recognize these doors of opportunities that God is opening up in your life right now? If you can’t, then pray about it.

Something is telling you to make a move but you keep sitting on the fence about your decisions. There’s nothing worse than being indecisive about what you want to do and where you want to go in your life. If you ever feel like you have no idea where you ought to go…this is where prayer becomes effective. Pray to God to give you direction as to where you ought to go. Various people in your life can offer you advice…but at the end of the day, you have to trust in the leading of the Holy Spirit even when what you feel led to do doesn’t make any sense to others. Think of Noah and the Ark story… He was told to build something that hadn’t been made before in order to save many lives to a flood that hadn’t happened before. But rather than listening to the ridicule and mockery at those that poked fun at him, Noah chose to trust in God’s leading and the result of his faith was that he was able to save not only all the animals, but those that believed in what he was doing which included his family.

I believe that some people will be asked to do something that doesn’t make sense to them by the Holy Spirit’s leading. My advice to anyone reading this, is to always do what the Lord lead’s you to do even when it doesn’t make sense to others. The Holy Spirit has many ways to inspire someone to act in faith; the question is, will you trust in the Lord’s leading when asked to do something that hasn’t been done before? What is the measure of your faith? You have to work on increasing it so that you can be able to do what seems impossible to others; God will make it possible for you who believes.


I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I pray that as you listen to this song, be encouraged to believe that God already knows what you are capable of achieving. It’s up to us to believe we can do ALL things through Christ who give us strength, Amen! I pray that this song blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀


God’s View of Marriage and Divorce – The Biblical Standard


Hello Peeps!

Image result for DivorceWell, today I woke up with this topic in my spirit. Whenever the Lord presses me to write on a sensitive issue, I always feel the I need to pray about it before I pursue it, so here is what I believe is God’s view point regarding the issue of DIVORCE. I will first give the Biblical view point on the topic and then I’ll add my 2 cents on it at the end.


Before I even go into depth regarding God’s view on the topic of DIVORCE, I must first define what a Marriage is by Biblical standards. Marriage in The Bible is defined as one union between 1 Man and 1 Woman (PERIOD). Anything outside this definition and context is contrary to the Biblical definition of marriage. Therefore, things like “same-sex marriages” or “polyamorous marriages” etc, do not fit in the Biblical context or definition of a Godly marriage. If you look at 1 Corinthians 7:1- 7The Bible confirms this definition, if you read the following that I’ve bold-ed:


1 Corinthians 7 

Principles of Marriage

Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me:

It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. But I say this as a concession, not as a commandment. For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that.


The Bible also highlights SPECIFICALLY that the unmarried and those who are widows (married individuals who have lost their spouse through death), are categorically those that are allowed to marry if they choose to do so; and if these individuals (categorically speaking) lack self-control with respect to their sexual desires. It is better for such people, categorically speaking, to marry rather than commit adultery or fornicate (have sex outside of marriage) as a consequence of their lack of self-control as is stated in the following verses of scripture:


1 Corinthians 7: 8-9

But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; 9 but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.


Those that have had sex outside the context of a marriage have sinned by God’s standard, and must confess and repent of their actions if they are truly contrite and aware that they have fallen short in this area of their lives. Some people may have had sexual experiences in their lives without knowing God’s standards regarding sexual purity and marriage, especially for those who weren’t Christian in the first place (unbelievers). However, once a person is aware and knows that engaging in such activities is sinful by God’s standards, they must choose not to engage any further in this area of sin after that. Those that continue in the knowledge of it are guilty of sinning in this area of their lives by their own volition and choice.


What about Rape, Molestation, or Exploited victims? 

In my opinion, those that have had sexual experiences against their will are not guilty of having had such experiences that compromised their purity by God’s standards. However, those that have committed such atrocities against another person or person(s), are guilty and have sinned greatly by God’s standards, and such individuals do end up reaping whatever thing they have sowed. I know that in the old testament times, raped victims ended up marrying their rapists under the Mosaic laws during those times. This was done as a means of restoring the raped victims honor (in a patriarchal Hebraic society), since the victim was considered no longer a virgin, and therefore, no man would have wanted to marry her. This law was instituted to restore a raped victims honor for her to be eligible to get married, and therefore, she would subsequently marry her rapist. I don’t know about you, but I think a victimized woman would rather remain single than marry her rapist… but I don’t know… that’s just me.


The Bible is also emphatic about husbands and wives keeping their marriage vows regardless of whether their partner is a Believer or not. If one partner is a Believer of Christ – A Christian, then the other spouse is also sanctified by their believing spouse in their marriage, and their children also become holy. However, if the unbelieving spouse chooses to leave the marriage, The Bible states in 1 Corinthians 7:15 that they should let them depart because how can they know whether or not they can save their unbelieving spouse? Only God can save an unbelieving spouse.


Image result for marriage vowsKeep Your Marriage Vows

10 Now to the married I commandyet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife.

12 But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?


In 1 Corinthians 7: 25-28, The Bible states that for those who are unmarried and virgins, that it is alright to remain as you are since you aren’t bound to anyone. However, just because your single doesn’t necessarily mean you live life without some sense of self-restraint and self-control. This doesn’t give a single person the license to act crazy and live life recklessly and irresponsibly. However, if a single person or widow marries, they have not sinned according to God’s standards.


To the Unmarried and Widows

25 Now concerning virgins: I have no commandment from the Lord; yet I give judgment as one whom the Lord in His mercy has made trustworthy. 26 I suppose therefore that this is good because of the present distress—that it is good for a man to remain as he is: 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you.


In 1 Corinthians 7:32-40The Bible makes a distinction regarding the differences between a married person versus an unmarried person.

For those that are unmarried, they are identified as those who: 

  1. care for the things of the Lord and how they may please Him (verse 32)
  2. care about being holy both in body and in spirit.
  3. when not given in marriage, they are those that do better (verse 38).

In contrast, for those that are married, they are identified as those who:

  1. care about the things of the world (verse 33)
  2. care about how they may please their spouse.
  3. when given in marriage, they are those that do well (verse 38).

32 But I want you to be without [b]care. He who is unmarried [c]cares for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord. 33 But he who is married cares about the things of the world—how he may please his wife. 34 There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband. 35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.

36 But if any man thinks he is behaving improperly toward his [d]virgin, if she is past the flower of youth, and thus it must be, let him do what he wishes. He does not sin; let them marry. 37 Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so determined in his heart that he will keep his [e]virgin, does well. 38 So then he who gives [f]her in marriage does well, but he who does not give her in marriage does better.


In the last 2 verses of the same chapter, The Bible clearly states that the wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives, but if he dies, she is at liberty to marry whomever she chooses in the Lord. Therefore, there is no room for an adulterous affair to take place, nor does a marriage permit having various other partners in the context of a Godly union.


39 A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. 40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment—and I think I also have the Spirit of God.

What about the Issue of Divorce? What is God’s take on the topic?

In order to talk about Divorce, we must look at Jesus’ perspective on the matter when the Pharisees tested Him on this same subject by looking at the following verses of scripture found in:


Matthew 19:1-10 (NKJV)

Image result for DivorceMarriage and Divorce

19 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these sayings, that He departed from Galilee and came to the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there.

The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?”

And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who[a]made them at the beginning made them male and female,’ and said,‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.

They said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?”

He said to them, Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for [b]sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.

10 His disciples said to Him, “If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry.”

It is clear that Jesus clarifies the parameters that allow for a Divorce of a marital union to take place in the book of Matthew 19:1-10 (NKJV). According to Jesus:

  1. Divorce was introduced in The Bible during the days of Moses where a certificate of divorce was issued to put away a man’s wife (verses 7-8). However, Jesus also stated that from the beginning, that wasn’t part of God’s plan. This was a man-made law created for a sinful generation that didn’t value the sanctity of marriage.
  2. Jesus, Himself, states that a divorce is only permitted if there is evidence of adultery, where one spouse has practiced sexual immorality and then chooses to marry another person.
  3. Jesus also makes it clear in verse 9 that whoever marries a divorced person has committed adultery.

I find it interesting that Jesus makes it clear in Matthew 19:4-6 that the Lord made us Male and Female and for this reason, a (male) man will leave his parents house and be joined together with his (female) wife and the two will become one flesh. No where does Jesus define this concept of marriage as homosexual, bisexual, or polymorous in nature, etc etc. It’s strictly between 1 man and 1 woman by God’s definition, so people really have no room to get this twisted.


So what about those that were once divorced and have married someone else?

The truth is, Biblically speaking, those that marry someone else after divorcing their first spouse have committed adultery by God’s standard.


Does that mean that they should divorce their new spouse to make things right? Divorcing twice over doesn’t make much of a difference, because adultery has already taken place and adultery is sin. Sin, is sin is sin is sin. There’s no two ways about this. All I can say is that for anyone that has committed adultery in someway, Go before God and seek repentance for making such a decision and life changing mistake. If you truly fear God, your spirit will be convicted of this Truth. Once a person is divorced, they are not permitted to marry someone else as is stipulated in The Bible, because that will be deemed as an act of ADULTERY; but we live in a sinful generation that so many people choose to ignore this and go about their business doing whatever it is that they like. I know that with the whole thing about Israel Houghton marrying his new wife Adrienne Bailon after divorcing his first wife, Meleasa Houghton, many have been quick to judge him on his choice to marry someone else with a condemning attitude… but I believe Jesus would look at his accusers and ask them this question in John 8:7:


John 8:1-12 (NKJV)

Jesus the Light of the World

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

Now [a]early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, “Teacher, [b]this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now [c]Moses, in the law, commanded us [d]that such should be stoned. But what do You [e]say?” This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, [f]as though He did not hear.

So when they continued asking Him, He [g]raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. Then those who heard it, being[h] convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up [i]and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers [j]of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go [k]and sin no more.”

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

As you can see, the scribes and Pharisees were quick to judge a person by their self-righteous standards; however, when it comes to God, we must always remember that the judgment we place on another person will be weighed against ourselves by God’s standards.


Matthew 7:2-4 (NKJV)

For with what [a]judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?

Does that mean that Israel Houghton didn’t commit adultery? No… because according to The Bible, he has committed adultery in marrying his 2nd wife Adrienne Bailon while divorcing his 1st wife Meleasa Houghton. However, I am of the opinion that he himself needs to be convicted of that truth. It’s simple to point the finger at him as outside observers expecting a higher standard of behaviour from him simply because he is a worship minister… but sometimes I feel that certain Christians … no matter what platform, position or title they carry within the church, if they are not taught what the Fear of the Lord is, they will be prone to making such mistakes. It is easier to expect a higher standard of such people; however, anyone is capable of making this mistake as with other mistakes, so we shouldn’t put such people on a high pedestal expecting them to be perfect when they are simply just human. At the end of the day, Israel Houghton and Adrienne Baillon both have to feel convicted that they have committed adultery by the Biblical definition of it, and be repentant of it themselves; between themselves and God. Anyone can be in denial regarding their actions in any area of their lives; however, if you are not convicted by Biblical standards of truth… then people leave room to sear their conscience bit-by-bit if they lack spiritual conviction that causes one to seek repentance from the Lord for their short-comings. There is no room to re-interpret what Jesus’ considers as adultery when it’s written plainly in The Bible for anyone to understand. Again I say, Sin is sin is sin is sin. There’s no two ways about it…

Although the deed is done, that doesn’t mean that our God is not quick to forgive when one comes before Him contrite in spirit while acknowledging their sin and short-comings. However, just because God forgives, doesn’t mean that people don’t end up reaping whatever they have sown. Sin always has a list of  consequences that follow, so it is important to learn to reverentially Fear the Lord in all that you do. It’s so easy to point fingers at other people who have fallen short and make a tabloid out of their mess. However, we must remember that the way in which we treat others, will be the same measure used to judge what we will receive in return. You get what you dish out. If you dish out judgments and criticisms towards other peoples flaws, you’ll receive the same level of treatment and judgment in return. Do not be the one that casts the first stone. As Christians, it is important to remember to remain humble and forgive others when they make mistakes. Don’t be quick to judge others so harshly without understanding their circumstances.


When judging another, we must remember that the measure you give is what you will receive in return. Let me make it clear in that although God is just to forgive us, this doesn’t give us a license to continue sinning in any area of our lives. We have to fear God in such a reverential type of way that we don’t end up searing our consciences just to go by what is politically correct in order to feed our fleshy desires rather than what is Biblically correct. Divorce is not of God since He hates divorce; however, God is just to forgive those who have gone through with this in their lives.


When correcting your brother or sister regarding a moral flaw, do so with love and righteousness rather than with condemnation, while at the same time, not watering down the truth so that they can sleep well at night. Correct and rebuke in such a way that it brings about inner-conviction to go back to God and seek forgiveness for their moral flaws, and to turn away from straying into the wrong path that doesn’t lead them in the right direction. This is how we teach others to REVERENTIALLY Fear the Lord. We must remember, not to be condemning when correcting our brother or sister. We should always correct in a truthful but loving manner so as to bring about inner conviction that leads a person to correct their actions that causes them to turn away from sin and repent of their behaviour. As Christians, we cannot afford to water-down the truth so that others can simply “sleep well at night”. We are our brother’s keeper so let us pray for each other when struggling with sin in certain areas of our lives rather than pointing the finger. I believe that this message was for someone needing to read this today. I pray that this post blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀
