The Coming New Year


Hello all!

Honestly, I feel like this year has been a whirlwind. So many things have happened that it’s hard to condense everything into one sweet paragraph.

I travelled back to Zimbabwe during the beginning of the year and that was an amazing experience which I will repeat again in the coming New Year.  I’ve been ministering in a church that is moving from baby stage to toddler stages of ministry this year with various shocking incidences that happened but we all kind of need those types of experiences in order to grow with maturity. We had a flock of people who up an left to build their own “church” and took some valuable members with them in the process. It was something that hit my pastors really hard, but honestly, I think that God showed us who to trust and what to do and NOT do when it comes to ministry. The thing is this though….people come to churches for a variety of reasons…but then there are those who come with ulterior motives and an agenda to not just simply cause division but bring about ruin. What I learned this year having witnessed this whole fiasco was that the devil don’t play and we must remain vigilant at all times. I was not discouraged by what happened. Rather I rejoiced thinking at least we have quality people left behind. One thing I will say is that  those that cause such divisions should be very careful with what intention they do these things. Not everyone that says “Lord Lord” does what he actually says.


Matthew 7:21 [Full Chapter]

[ I Never Knew You ] “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Another story: A friend of mine has been going through a crazy romance that seems to have caused her to do some things that have been outside of God’s will that eventually led her to get pregnant out of wed-lock and then miscarry the baby. The person she is with plays at her emotions with blame-gaming and finger-pointing but at the end of the day I have a feeling that she maybe unequally yoked with this character of a man. Despite all of this, as a friend I listen to what she says and have told her plainly that she may have to consider that she is unequally yoked with this person since it seems that they have a lot of important things they disagree about.

I know that as a single person she has been desperate to find that perfect someone to spend the rest of her life with but I don’t think it should be at the cost of losing your most important relationship that you have with God. I am single as well and can empathize with her decision making…it’s very easy to yield to temptation especially when you are watching all your friends get married and you’ve past the age of 30…but even though that is the case…I still believe in maintaining standards and learning to keep yourself from  bouncing to what seems good next… Every action has a consequence and I think she sees through her mistakes and is now working on reality checking.  The thing is…when you’re in “love”…you are blinded by the emotion that you fail to see yourself sometimes. Don’t be blind to yourself. If anything…wake up and see yourself and ask yourself if the person you are with adds to your life and includes God in the picture or if they are like a sponge sucking up all that is good out of you leaving you hanging out to dry…? I’m just throwing these thoughts out there so this isn’t a typical post if you will. I don’t know what you are expecting but I’m just going to keep on typing.


The New Year: I usually put up a prayer for the New Year and I’m thinking about it seriously on whether I will do one for this year or not because 2016 is going to be a year of serious battle and victories for some. That is what I’m sensing for the coming New Year. How you end this year will show you how the new one will start to pan out for you. Like I said, 2015 was like a whirlwind. I experienced a lot of spiritual awakenings and a lot of trials and tribulations but the one thing I have seen throughout this whole entire year is how God has been with me through every circumstance. I want to give God praise for this year and the year that we are all about to embark. Make God first in all that you do. My message for the New year is MAKE GOD FIRST PERIOD! The time is now to make Him First.

It’s not easy to wait for a lot of things…but I guarantee that it’s worth making God First in everything that you do in your life because all the things that you have been waiting for will have so much value and impact that you will appreciate God for the process of grooming your spiritual and intellectual maturity to handle the things that go right and wrong in your life. It’s easy to be emotional, but it’s better to be responsive with a heart that is willing to hear and obey instruction, thirsting for wisdom continually and desiring action above all else rather than having a passive “kay sera sera,  whatever will be, will be…” mentality.

Faith without works is dead everyone…so don’t fool yourself now.

Patience is the key…and so is action. The things you want in the coming new year will be coined with the two words I just mentioned….PATIENCE and ACTION. If you don’t learn these two things, you will end up making avoidable mistakes had you listened to the idea that Patience is indeed a virtue and action is required when instructions have been relayed.


As a minister, daughter, friend I want to wish everyone who reads my blog a Happy New Year. It’s going to be prosperous!

Here is a song by Lauren Daigle called I Am Yours. May it bless your spirit today everybody 😀

Who is your #1?


Hi Everybody!


1 Chronicles 16:8 NKJV – Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!


Well, I just want to give y’all an update and testimony before I continue the message of my post. I finished my 21 days of prayer and fasting at my Church Living Proof Centre for the month of November and let me tell you, God is AWESOME! I was expecting a cheque from a govt agency for a large amount of money (approx 10K) that they said they’d give it to me in 3 months (so basically I had to wait until December or possibly January 2016 to received it) and I was kind of in a situation where I needed to pay off some bills and some other things as soon as possible and didn’t accept their 3 month wait. So I decided to pray for divine acceleration to receive that cheque much sooner than their 3 month stipulation and guess what, I DID!

On day 3 of the fast I received that cheque! Hallelujah!

What should have taken three months for me to receive, I received in 3 days through prayer and fasting. Our God is an Awesome GOD!

The moment I received that cheque a sowed back $1000 to the church because the Lord impressed upon my heart to do so and I must say…I won’t lie, I kinda didn’t want to at first because I’d never seen $10K in my life like that and I seriously just wanted to save what I had left after paying some of my crazy bills into my mutual fund account etc etc. However, I was soo moved by God’s love and faithfulness that I was like…you know what Holy Spirit, I’m going to sownot simply because you told me to, but because I want to be faithful and want to sow back because I love God and I simply want to put Him first in my life in all areas of my life. 


I remember sharing this testimony at church as I was leading a teaching during my turn to do exhortation (I’m a minister in the church by the way) called “The One Who supplies seed to the Sower”.  

2 Corinthians 9:10-11 (NKJV)

10 Now may[a] He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.

PrioritiesA woman sitting in the church hearing the message decided to sow the very last money she had into the church that was meant for a return ticket for her to go back home during our 21 days of prayer and fasting at the church. She was also waiting for the Govt to give her back a huge amount of money they owed her and had been told that she’d have to wait until next year FEBRUARY 2016 to receive her cheque. She didn’t have all the time or luxury to wait and yet she decided to sow and send her seed on assignment for divine acceleration. 

Let me make it clear, her seed wasn’t simply for the church…the church is simply soil and the ground this church rests on is called FAITH. She sowed by faith and let me tell you, on day 20 of the 21 days of prayer and fasting that we were holding at the church she received her money from the Govt back in full and was able to not only buy her ticket home, but do much much more for her family and her business back home. She remembered the principle I had shared about sowing and sowed back to God for His Faithfulness. She received multiple breakthroughs even after that and received connections from very influential business and govt officials to help her shift her business and family. It wasn’t what she expected but God kept increasing her blessing that she was just overwhelmed by the Goodness of God. Isn’t Our God AMAZING!!!!!!!

There are so many testimonies coming out from those that participated in our Church’s 21 days of Prayer and Fasting that I’m looking forward to the next one that we will be holding for the beginning of January 2016.

Listen…many people get the principle of sowing wrong. I remember saying in my teaching that the seed God gives you is useless if all you do is keep it in your hand. The true power of your seed is when it’s sown…but you have to determine which soil you want to sow your seed. You must sow in Faith in order to reap a harvest of righteousness.

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.

first-bulletin-graphicAnyway, that’s my testimony and I praise God for all that He has done. The point of my post is about putting God first. When you fast and pray, you put God first. When God asks you to do something in obedience…do it. Don’t ask questions, just simply do it.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

After the fast, I started to prophesy and things would just simply happen as I said. I would even go to work and start prophesying to some people and things would happen as I had said…I feel like I got much more out of the Fast than ever. An increase in spiritual discernment and the ability to hear clearly from the Holy Spirit. I praise God for His Faithfulness.


There is something about setting aside your pride, your intellect and humbling yourself before God and seeking His face that makes being with Him the most wonderful place to be. 


It’s easy to put people and stuff first, but I feel that personally, you have to make that choice to put God first in front of every person. You have to be conscious of it and make Him first. Not even your family can be first…it has to be You and God.

Ask yourself, Who is your Number 1?

If God isn’t your #1…then you are living a life of mediocrity. I can’t put that in kinder words because it’s true. You maybe offended, but that is the reality of it my friends.

As my Pastor would often say, “A life without Christ is crisis”. Are you facing a Crisis right now? Then set your priorities in order and make God first again. Go back to your first love (Which I hope is Christ by the way). Make Him your number one and don’t be simply seeking to hear God’s voice, but learn to be doers of what you hear. God gives instructions all the time, and it takes faith to obey. My challenge to you is to sit down in your prayer closet and repent of the things you’ve put first before God and ask God to shift your life to make Him the center of EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE. I guarantee, that your life will change when you shift your focus back to God.

The choice all remains with you. 


Here is a song by Lauren Daigle called First. May this song bless your Spirit today! 😀 GOD bless you everybody!

Worship Sunday: The Great I AM


Happy Sunday Everybody!

I just had to post this awesome song called The Great I AM by PHILLIPS, CRAIG & DEAN. This song is just filling up my spirit and I just had to share this song with y’all. I will post the video of this song being sung by LaRue Howard. It just sounds AWESOME. I pray that it blesses your spirit today. God Bless you Everybody! 🙂

Here are the lyrics:

 “Great I Am”

I want to be close, close to Your side
So Heaven is real and death is a lie
I want to hear voices of angels above
Singing as one

[Chorus:]
Hallelujah, holy, holy
God Almighty, the great I AM
Who is worthy, none beside Thee
God Almighty, the great I AM

I want to be near, near to Your heart
Loving the world and hating the dark
I want to see dry bones living again
Singing as one

[Chorus]

The great I AM

The mountains shake before You the demons run and flee
At the mention of the name King of Majesty
There is no power in hell
Or any who can stand
Before the power and the presence of the great I AM

The great I AM the great I AM yeah

[Chorus x2]

The great I AM
The great I AM
The great I AM

Worship Sunday: Comin’ Out


Hi Everybody!

Happy Sunday!

Well, as you know, I’ve been in worship mode lately. I will eventually come back to blogging on specific topics soon, but right now I just need to keep praising God for now.

This song that I’m posting today is to uplift anybody who is going through a hard time right now. Sometimes you will feel like you are stuck between a rock and a hard place, but make sure that the Rock you are stuck with is Jesus. Give Glory to God in the darkest times in your life because sometimes it is through the darkest moments in life that you will see the light shine brightly showing you the way out of where you are right now. Only God can rescue us through every trial. Trials are never easy, but we all have to go through them in order to become more refined as individuals. I know that for me, smiling through a trial acting like nothing is wrong has been the most intense struggle I’ve ever had to face; however, I know that if I did not hold onto my sanity I would have lost it and probably thrown in the towel into self-pity land in a state of depression. It’s all about building emotional strength and intelligence to handle the trial.

It’s not easy to rejoice in the trial but it is something I learned how to do because I am thankful to God for giving me the grace to see me through each day. My ears have become sharper to hear what He has to say because when you have nothing left, all you have will always be God. What I learned through my unemployment trial was that when you give God everything you have left even if it seems like nothing, He honors your gift with a reward. The truth is, we are more powerful than we could ever imagine. Even if we don’t realize it, we have talents that we can multiply if we put them to use. The thing is, you have to allow God to use you when He wants your full attention. It may seem like whatever He asks of you will not profit you, but God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Seek God in your trial and come as you are to Him. Allow yourself to become undone before Him so that He can re-create you to what you were destined to be, a conqueror, a might woman or man of valor, an overcomer, an over achiever, a king and queen of the most High God in your sphere of influence within your job, school, family or career. Let God use you and then He will create a path that is straight for you. His will is to prosper you…so if you believe in His way of doing things, and follow Him, you will definitely be successful in whatever you do.

Are you ready to do things GOD’s way, even if it doesn’t make sense?

 

This song is by Jonathan McReynolds called Comin’ Out. May this song minister to your spirit today. God Bless you everybody!

God says “Lean on Me”


Hi Everybody,

Right now, I feel like I need to lean on God for His help with the things that I cannot do. We can work by might and power, but the Spirit of God always urges us to seek His face for what He can do for us when our strengths and abilities are limited. God is limitless…We serve a limitless God and in knowing this, we must learn what it means to have faith in a limitless God. I know for myself that each day I see amazing things that the Lord has done for me or others by His limitless grace. The faith I have in myself is limited if God is not in the picture. We can quote scripture and claim that “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us”, however, this strength that we receive comes from our Faith to believe that God is able to be whatever we need Him to be in our lives. He is a God with many names in our human minds, the “I Am that I Am” (Jehovah), and this same God is the God of the Impossible, the God of no limits, the God that supersedes our own understanding, the God of miracles, the God who is the author and finisher of our Faith.

Nothing is Impossible for those that believe. We always want God to trust us with things that we desire, but we have to learn to trust Him in return.

God is not Deaf, not mute, not lame, not sick, not broken, not incomplete, not empty like some of us are… He is completely God and we need Him to make us whole again since we are all incomplete without Him in our heart. He can restore all that is missing in our lives, we just have to lean on Him and trust that He can do this for us if we just believe.

The Question is: “Do you believe?”

I have here two Songs by William McDowell that I love, one called “In” and the other called “I won’t go back”. These songs minister to me and I pray that they bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody!

A Prayer for Free People


Hi Everybody!

Hope you are all having a great week. I came across this video which I’m posting today as a word of encouragement and inspiration to uplift anybody’s heart today. It is such a true gift to be free from a life that was bleak without God. Salvation is  a gift and freedom begins with a choice — by choosing Jesus to be our Lord and Savior; walking in the same spirit, in the same mind, in the same body as Christ did for us. Be blessed Everybody!

 

God – You Did!


pillar-of-light

Hi Everybody!

Honor-HimWooohoooooooo it’s the final day of the Fast for me! The whole journey has been rather surreal for me. I remember going to church last night because we were praying throughout the 21 Day Daniel Fast so it was holding a prayer service, and as people were praying for their needs, I literally saw a cloud of smoke hovering the entire congregation and it filled the entire room and I knew it was the presence of God because this wasn’t the first time I’d seen this happen.

Exodus 33:10

All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door.

People of God, the presence of God is tangible from my experience. It was a fearful sight for me, because that is when you realize that you’ve entered into a place that is considered the Holy of Holies. I remember feeling like I was just trembling throughout the prayer session and what I can say is that when you enter into that Holy place, you can’t joke around in that presence. I believe that the same God who walked with the Isralites like a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night is able to make His presence known to those who reverentially fear Him. As I meditate today, I feel in my spirit that the Lord wants people to know that the Lord will lead you in the night time and in the day time with knowledge, instruction, direction from the Light that comes from His Word. All you have to do is watch Him lead and you follow as you walk by faith and not by sight.

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Exodus 13:21

And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.

 

I’m expecting a new move of God this year. What took years to be established will take days if not hours to be fulfilled. There is indeed a quickening in the spirit so don’t give up on what you are praying for is my encouragement today. God will show you the road in which you should travel if you just put your trust in Him today.

Nehemiah 9:12

Moreover You led them by day with a cloudy pillar, And by night with a pillar of fire, To give them light on the road Which they should travel.

Nehemiah 9:19

Yet in Your manifold mercies You did not forsake them in the wilderness. The pillar of the cloud did not depart from them by day, To lead them on the road; Nor the pillar of fire by night, To show them light, And the way they should go.
God will not leave you in the wilderness if you just allow Him to take you by the Hand and allow Him to lead you in the right direction, is what I’m hearing in my spirit right now as I’m typing this.
if-god-is-with-us
This word that is in my spirit right now is to encourage you as it is also an encouragement to myself. There are moments I wonder whether I am heading in the right direction as I sometimes am filled with anxiety wondering if I’m still following Him. There are moments where the road seems a bit blurry and you need that reassurance that you are walking in the right direction. Throughout the fast God has been telling me to not lean on my own understanding and to follow Him as He directs my path (Proverbs 3:5-7). Sometimes we operate by presumption, assuming we know where we ought to go…but that level of presumption can lead you astray if you are not careful. We can’t rely on our own understanding to get to where God wants us to be so we have to humble ourselves and allow Him to direct the path and He will make it clear for you. I pray that the journey ahead of all of us will be made clear and that in whatever we do, we must do it for the glory of God to be revealed to His lost sheep.
May the peace of God follow you throughout the year everybody!

I feel like celebrating the end of this fast with a song by J.Moss (feat. James Fortune) called You Did. May this Song bless your spirit today Everybody!

Worship in the Fast: My God is Awesome!


selah

Hi Everybody!

In this fast, I’ve been basking myself in uplifting praise songs. It really prepares your spirit to worship and to fight as you pray seeking God for direction and instructions. Worship is a lifestyle and in this Daniel fast, it is the most powerful tool to have close by when you encounter attacks coming out of nowhere. Fix your heart, mind, body and soul towards Jesus. He can protect you from confusion, depression, pressure, anger, and any type of negative thoughts that start to attack your mind. Spiritual Warfare is not a joke. For those that are participating in the 21 Day Daniel Fast, it is imperative that you focus your mind to think positive and wholesome thoughts. Guard your mind and hold it captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 10:5
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

Bless your soul with worship when you are feeling low…it’s a mighty weapon of warfare that should not be underestimated especially at this time. Fill your spirit with WORSHIP and it will be so natural by the time you come into a Sunday service to lift your hands and give the Lord PRAISE. Some people can be soooo down that they are unable to lift their hands because something is missing in their lives. It’s worship….don’t wait until Sunday pops by to get your worship on. You’ve got to practice it everyday until it becomes natural to you. Many have this amazing weapon of warfare, but can’t get delivered simply because they aren’t using this weapon of warfare. It’s time for God’s people to rise up and Give the Lord Praise and Worship so that they can see Him move mightily in their lives.

If we want to sing songs of DELIVERANCE….we have to fill our spirits with WORSHIP everyday! If you don’t, then it will be as if you are going into battle without weapons hoping that you will win. God ensures victory when we give Him Praise and especially when we Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. So today, fill your spirit with Worship and fix your attitude about Worship. The strategy of the enemy is always to steal the Lord’s worship so what better way than to distract us from using this powerful weapon of warfare by robbing our attention and focus from God by making us focus on our problems rather than seeking God and seeing God as the answer to our problems.  Fill your spirit with songs of Deliverance and surely God will Deliver you out of your trial.

Psalm 32:7
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

My Sister Sharon just found this awesome song  called Awesome God and I just have to share it here. It’s sooooooo good. The original song is greatm but this remix is just awesome.

Enjoy these songs everybody and may it bless your spirit today Everybody!

It’s Time for the DAVID Generation to Rise Up


davidarkfr38-2

Hi Everybody,

This is going to be a short post, but this is in my Spirit right now. It’s time for the DAVID Generation to rise up. God is seeking a generation that will specifically run after God’s heart. When you run after it, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your life is going to be easy. I mean look at David in the Bible, Saul who was a psychotic king wanted him dead because he was jealous of David and David at one time also lived in a Cave for a season while God was preparing him to become King. The Sauls will be forced to recognize the divine favor poured upon the David Generation, for this generation will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth for He seeks such to worship Him (John 4:23).

This type of elevation and favor that was on David was on him since he was a child, because he already lived a life of consecration (refer back to my God’s No Name Brands post) and this life of consecration is what God is demanding for the DAVID generation rising.

John 4:24
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Because God is Spirit, this generation cannot afford to fake worship, neither can they worship based on their fleshy feelings or desires. There will be no room for Pride in this Generation…Humility will be their robe of righteousness. They will have to worship from deep within them through the Spirit provided that they abide in the Truth.

How does one abide in the Truth? By having faith and believing that the Word of God is true and living it out too. God will ask the DAVID Generation to do difficult things within the next year. Relationships will change and everything in their environment will change for there is a quickening in the spirit to move them into their rightful positions. They should not fear what is happening because that is the only way they will move from Glory to Glory. As my Pastor says, “No guts, no Glory”. The Glory that the Lord is pouring out in this season will land on those that can be trusted with little so they will be given much.

Luke 16:10
He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.

The DAVID Generation will walk in the Spirit and will teach others what it means to Fear the Lord. God does not want the DAVID Generation to be afraid of Spiritual warfare for He will train their Hands for war and He will walk with them wherever they go because He will be their God and they will be His People. God be praised!

Jeremiah 24:7
Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.

Ezekiel 11:20
that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.

Jeremiah 32:38
They shall be My people, and I will be their God;

This is what I am feeling in my spirit right now and just felt compelled to share it here on WordPress for some reason.

God bless you everybody!

Worship Sunday: Give Me You


Happy Sunday Everybody!

I’ll post them below for those interested in the song. I pray that this song ministers to your heart, your spirit and your mind today. God bless you Everybody!

Lyrics:
Give me You.
Everything else can wait.
Give me You.
I hope I’m not too late.

Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.

It’s me oh, Lord.
I’m on my knees.
Crying out to You.
It’s me oh, Lord.
I’m on my knees.
So, give me You.
Give me You..
