In Thy Name


God's NameHi Everybody,

Hope y’all are having a blessed weekend. Today, I want to post a video called “Thy Name”. 

The questions I have for your meditation today are:

Do you know who God is? Who is God to you?

Many people assume that they do many good works in His Name which make them stellar Christians in the eyes of people, but unfortunately, these same people ignore the voice of the Father (through the Holy Spirit) when He gives direction which is an act of DISOBEDIENCE.

If you are one of those that say “I have never heard the Lord say….” or “The Holy Spirit doesn’t speak to me…”, then You need to re-evaluate how you perceive yourself before the Father.

You need to have a revelation of who God is to you in order to hear what He is saying to  you in order for you to be who God wants you to be…and that is to be His child.

148663_10152093485351832_2085451673_nChildren of God are Children of obedience. Obedience is cultivated by a trust relationship. You need to Trust in the Father as the Father also has need to Trust in you.  Trust is built on Faith, and Faith comes by Hearing, and Hearing by the Word of the Lord (Romans 10:17).

Do you Trust God enough to Hear Him? Sometimes our Pride can cause us to be deaf to the Holy Spirit, but when we humble ourselves before Him and pray and seek His face, that is when we truly begin to Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to “Us” the Church as little children (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17,29; Revelations 3:6, 13, 22).  

You know the saying that goes…“When the student is ready, the master will appear”. Well, in our case…it’s different. In our case it is

“When YOU, the Child of God is ready, the Father will appear”. 

Are you ready to be what you were predestined to be? 

As Jesus is the Great Shepherd, He tells us that “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  (John 10:27).

In order to follow Jesus, we must be willing to hear what the Spirit of the Lord wants us to hear. 

God speaks to us everyday in so  many different ways. Do not put God in a box with your way of thinking. Learn to soften your heart and become sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. You can do this by meditating on the Word and acting on it by faith. When you reach out to the Father by faith, He will extend His hand to you. It’s all in His Word. He is not a man that He should lie. So reach out to Him today and learn to Hear from Him when He calls you by Name.

Scriptures to Meditate on: 

Psalm 73:28

But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, That I may declare all Your works.
Ecclesiastes 5:1

Fear God, Keep Your Vows ] Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw nearto hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil.
James 4:8

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purifyyour hearts, you double-minded.
Numbers 23:19

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said,and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

May This video by Shiftworship Bless your Spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀

“You’re not from around Here are Ya?” – Walk the Talk Y’all!


Hi Everybody!

So my thought for the day is that each day we are being watched by such a cloud of witnesses and the only thing that should concern us as Christians is for instance, if you were put in a large group of people in a crowd, would it be obvious to the locals that “you just ain’t from around here”? I remember when I crossed over to the U.S. a few years ago to go to the amusement park with some family and friends to Six Flags (now known as Darien Lake), and people from the New Yorkan side could tell immediately that “I ain’t from around here”. I hadn’t even spoken to anybody at that point and yet the way I appeared to some of the people there was so distinct that they could tell I’m “Canadian” and not American on the get go.

Now think about it, what makes me look Canadian as oppose to fittin’ in the crowd and pass off as an American? First off, I am Canadian by citizenship but I’m African by birth and heritage period so race doesn’t seem to be the issue here at all. It seems that it was the way I appeared to them. I wasn’t wearing an obvious red maple leaf  shirt plastered with a “I’M CANADIAN AY!’ on it or anything because I wore typical gear such as jeans and a black top and yet I didn’t “fit in” this crowd of people. People kept saying “Your from Canada ain’tcha?”… Mind you, I haven’t even spoken a word to anybody yet and still they could tell that I wasn’t from this area. This tells me that to some degree, the way we carry ourselves as people must make such a distinction that even locals can discern easily that you aren’t from their particular city. When I speak they can tell immediately I’m from Canada based on the language and accent, but even when I do put on an American accent (which I can do by the way), they can still tell that I’m not American. No matter what I did to blend in with the crowd, there was still something about me that made me distinguishable amongst the crowd.

Now you must be wondering…”Where are you going with this Sherline??????? “

hold on and  let me finish people! lol.

You’ve gotta start asking yourselves that as Christians, how do we appear to look like in the secular World?

Do we appear different from the crowd or are we soo easily blended in?

What does it mean to stand out? What does it mean to be a “peculiar people”?

If New Yorkan Locals can identify that I’m not a local from their city based on appearance and language alone, then it tells me that as Christians, we can be identified by our appearance and language alone to the secular world.

So now we have to ask ourselves…are we VISIBLE enough that we can be identified as a Christian without the bumper sticker or not?

If we are to be a PECULIAR PEOPLE, there is something about us that must stand out in our appearance, conduct and speech.

Like I said in a previous post, WE ARE KNOWN TO BE CHRISTIANS BY OUR LOVE IN ACTION.  

Like youth that have a social culture that is distinguishable among them and business people have a business culture that they can be identified with…we Christians must have a Christian culture that is distinguishable and recognizable to the masses.

So today I challenge you to search deep within yourselves and consider that being Christian should be OBVIOUS. It shouldn’t be something that we need a flash light for to find you among the crowd because we are supposed to shine as beacons amongst the crowd. Being peculiar doesn’t mean being weird, it means being different, set-apart, distinguished, recognizable, easily identifiable, and standing out even in a crowd. To God we are a Holy Nation so clearly we must reflect the image of our Heavenly city, don’t you agree?  The only way to satisfy this Character and image trait is by walking what we talk more than talking the walk.  Some people are all talk and no action…but being effective and being peculiar is putting that talk into action. Comprende?!

It’s one thing toTalk the Walk” (because anybody can do that) but ultimately we have to learn to “Walk the TALK”. It’s ok to be ordinarily extra-ordinary,  Just Sayin’!

Stay blessed everybody! Love y’all who are from around here *hint* *hint* :).

I have two awesome songs to kick start your day from 21:03. The First ones called Total Attention and the other one is called Holding onto You. Couldn’t decide which one I wanted to post so I decided have the best of both words and double the blessing today! May these songs bless you today Everybody!

The REDEMPTION PACKAGE: Jesus came to REVERSE the CURSE!


Hi Everybody!

At this time I feel in my spirit that I just need to give you a Word of GOOD NEWS! Jesus REVERSED EVERY CURSE AT THE CROSS  through His Blood!!!!!

“Sherline….what in the world are you talking about girl???” you must be wondering.

I believe that this is what the Spirit of the Lord wants people to know at this time.

At the Cross, Our Lord Jesus Christ, reversed so many curses and I believe HE wants His Children to know the FULL REDEMPTION PACKAGE so I’m going to name a few things here:

9. He took our divorce papers and claimed us as His BRIDE (Revelation 21:9 ; Revelation 21:2)

10. He took our tears and gave us FULLNESS of JOY (Psalm 16:11)

11. He took our Pain and Gave us Relief through DELIVERANCE (Jeremiah 17:14; Joel 2:32

12. He took our Sin and gave us FORGIVENESS (1 John 2:12)

13. He took our Pauper status and gave us a Crown as SONS OF GOD (Hosea 1:10; Matthew 5:9; Luke 20:36; Romans 8:14)

14. He took our broken covenant and replaced it with a NEW ONE (Hebrews 9:15)

15. He took our old Creation and MADE US NEW CREATIONS (2 Corinthians 5:17)

16. He tore the Veil that separated us from our Father by a curtain and allowed us access to the throne room of God who is our Heavenly FATHER by what He did at Calvary (Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45)

17. He took our Dis-unity from the Father and gave us UNITY in HIM by providing us the Helper who is the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:3; Ephesians 4:13 ; 1 Corinthians 12:12 ;Psalm 133:1)

18. He RESTORES what was destroyed in the Garden of EDEN with the New COVENANT in his BLOOD (Matthew 26:28)

19. HE claims back the TERRITORY that we forsook in the GARDEN of EDEN and Claims it back for the SONS OF GOD (Revelation 11:15).

20. He takes the AUTHORITY of the ENEMY and GIVES IT BACK TO  the SONS OF GOD (Luke 10:19)

21. He takes all the TORMENT we suffered and gives us PEACE (John 14:27)

22. He takes all that the DEVIL stole from us and GIVES it back to us in full measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over! (Luke 6:38)

24. He took all the Lies of the Devil and blessed us with the TRUTH (John 8:32; John 16:13)

26. He took the Darkness and gave us to be LIGHTS of the WORLD (Matthew 5:16).

27. HE took our weaknesses and gave us STRENGTH (2 Corinthians 12:10Joel 3:10;Ephesians 6:10

People there are so many curses I could name here that have been REVERSED by the Blood of JESUS and I just want to tell you that we have many reasons to GIVE HIM PRAISE!!!!! JESUS IS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS AMEN!!!!!

I Believe that at this time that GOD IS UP TO SOMETHING BIG people during this time of Easter/Passover/Lent. I Believe that when we think of How Jesus heals us it’s not only the Physical that He’s concerned about, it’s also the Spiritual side of us as well. He wants us to be FULLY RESTORED IN HIM by bringing our SOULS, SPIRITS and BODY in complete ALIGNMENT to HIS WORD.

I Believe that at this precious time Jesus is saying:

“I WILL HEAL and DELIVER the spiritually Blind so that they can see GOD (Jesus),

I WILL HEAL and DELIVER the spiritually Deaf so that they can HEAR GOD (the prophetic Voice of God);

and 

I WILL HEAL AND DELIVER the spiritually Lame so that they can WALK IN THE SPIRIT (in full operation of the gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT)”

Sounds like the voice of REVIVAL TO ME!!!!!!! HALLELUJAH! I know this sounds very bold and kind of radical for me to say…but I cannot ignore what is stirring up in my spirit. God is in the RESTORATION PROCESS in this year of 2012 the year of DIVINE GOVERNMENT. SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACES THIS YEAR!!!!!!!

The verses that just came into my spirit as I was writing up this post  come from both the Old Testament and the NEW Testament. God spoke it before and He is saying that HE will complete HIS WORD! 

Joel 2:28
[ God’s Spirit Poured Out ] “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.

Acts 2:17
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

I have a Song to finish off my post to bless you today. It’s from Martha Munizzi called Amazing Love. Be Redeemed and blessed in Jesus’ Name Everybody!

A Quick Thought for the Day – I AM NOT HAVING AN IDENTITY CRISIS!


Hello Everybody!

So this is just a quick thought for the day. We all know that our Jehovah  is the Great “I AM” – JEHOVAH. So likewise, we must remember who we are in Christ. The Devil who is our adversary loves putting a question mark (“?”) where GOD has put a PERIOD (“.”).

 GOD Said “I AM WHO I AM” and never once did He question who He was. He never said “AM I WHO I AM?”.

Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

Understand this people. GOD knows who HE IS and so must we know who we ARE. Satan makes us put question marks where GOD has placed a period. The assignment on our lives is to confuse us with many questions concerning our identity if you refer back to my previous post Contending with Unbelief – Father of Lies where God has already placed periods to establish HIS WILL on Earth for all of His Childrens lives.

 So whenever you feel confused about your IDENTITY…remember GOD’S PERIOD in your life and TOSS AWAY & TRASH EVERY QUESTION MARK by way of any Diabolical suggestion that tries to negate GOD’s PERIOD in your life. Be firm in God’s Word. Believe what GOD says about You because you are His CHILD!

Isaiah 55:11
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

You are a CHILD OF GOD and you are a Son and Daughter of the Most High GOD! Who’s report will you Believe?

We haven’t got time to have an identity crisis so understand WHO YOU ARE in CHRIST and WHOSE YOU ARE. A child of Obedience, A Child of Faith and  A Child of the MOST HIGH GOD. 

Stay blessed in your Journey everybody!

I have posted this video before in a different post but I feel that I need to repost this video to drive the point across. May it bless you today.

Let Your LIGHT shine in ALL the Earth


This is a video that has been inspired by my earlier post Beauty that overshadows the real War inside. We should truly reflect on what it means to Shine our LIGHT in this Dark dark world.

John 8:12
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.”

John 9:5
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

John 12:46
I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)

14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

John 1:4-5 (NKJV)

4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend[a] it.
