There are so many Christians who have grown weary in their well doing. So many have prayed without ceasing, fasted regardless of difficulty and continued to be sensitive to the Spirit even when the world tells them to turn from Him. So many have continued to stand through exhaustion, fight through discouragement and rejoice in the midst of their continual battles.
It truly is incredible to witness the obedience of God’s Remnant.
Today, I feel the need to encourage those who are feeling the weight of the battles upon their shoulders and the weariness that has crept in on all sides: you will witness your miracle and live your breakthrough.

There are times in my life when I push against the Lord, when I become so frustrated with what is going on around me that I forget the power that is within me. I allow the world to quiet God’s voice and cloud my vision from seeing the Truth.
He has never failed me, yet sometimes I find myself still wondering if whatever current battle I’m in is the one I will lose, the time when my God just doesn’t step in.
This thought process does nothing but harm me and hinder me from doing what I am called to do. If He has never failed me, why would He start now? Continue reading “In The Darkness”
What is our initial reaction to bad news? Is it terror? Is it anxiety, worry, stress? If we call ourselves Christians and we say we fully trust in the Lord, then when the world bangs on our door, should we, for even a second, worry about what is on the other side? Continue reading “Why Are We Worrying?”
Several days ago, the Lord convicted me that the problem He and I were having (there was something like a wedge in our relationship) was that I wasn’t trusting Him, fully and completely.
Every time I complained, I wasn’t trusting Him.
Every time I asked Him “why”, I wasn’t trusting Him.
Every time I came to Him and begged; I wasn’t trusting Him.
I have felt like Thomas, needing to see the hands and the feet to believe, but little did I know that to continually need to see the proof in my timeframe was competing with my faith, the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen (Hebrews 11:1). The Lord told me that to constantly question the promises He has already told us in His Word, which we so often do as humans, is a form of disbelief.
I believe God’s people have been plagued by distrust, me being one of them. Continue reading “With All Thine Heart”
Positivity is something I’ve recently been battling to capture. It has eluded me like a fish I’m trying to catch with my hands in a large pond; right when I think I have hold of it, something comes along to scare it away.
I know I’m not alone with this particular fight. So many Christians are battling and waiting on the Lord for their victory, breakthrough, miracle, overflow, answer…so much waiting, which leads to discouragement.
I became curious and began researching scripture on waiting. As I read through the many, many verses regarding waiting upon the Lord, the Spirit said to me, “WAITING IS A FORM OF FAITH”. Continue reading “Within The Waiting”
There have been several moments in my life where I’ve wondered where God was. I’m not proud of these moments but I won’t lie and say I’m the perfect Christian or that I never doubt the Lord. The past several months have been difficult for me, spiritually and mentally. I work in Washington D.C., where I truly believe the battle is raging more-so than nearly anywhere in the world.
There is a spiritual heaviness residing over the city, something that is nearly palpable. It makes me sad to admit, but my Nation’s Capitol, although physically beautiful, has become dirty with the darkness we have allowed into the country. I say “we” because the church has allowed this to happen. We didn’t stand against evil when it knocked on our door because we feared what the masses would think, now we are dealing with the repercussions of opening the door rather than locking it and telling the enemy to leave.

Right now, in this moment where things are quiet and I have time to reflect upon who my God is, I feel confident that all will be okay. I have found myself bogged down with so many concerns over the past several months: concerns for my Country, the Remnant, the overall future of the Church.
But, right now, there is something within me that simply knows, believes, that we, you and I and everyone else that is a part of the Remnant, will get through this trying time and end up exactly where God wants us.
In the physical, none of this makes sense, all seems murky and confusing, but in the Spiritual we are making our way through the night towards the light of a New Day. Continue reading “New Day”
This morning, I awoke thinking, “My God is a consuming Fire” from the song Mighty Warrior. The words seemed to be on a continuous loop running through my mind without me even realizing it. While out for a walk I was telling myself, nearly subconsciously, “My God is a consuming fire”. While getting dressed, eating breakfast, and walking to work the same thing was happening.
As I sit here and write, I wonder if this line was specifically placed into my mind for the Remnant. I don’t know a single Christian today who isn’t battling something. Some of the battles are massive giants, standing tall in front of us like a mountain that just doesn’t seem capable of crumbling. Others in the Remnant are simply in one fight after the next, some big and some small, never seeming to get a break. I often think of God as my Father, a comforter and protector, but I sometimes forget that first and foremost He is GOD, the Creator of the Universe and the Master of all mankind.

I need to see the Spirit of God move upon the earth in a mighty way.
I need to hear the Lord’s voice wash over me like fresh rain falling from heaven.
I need to feel the power that emanates from my God when He walks into a room.
I need to touch the hem of Jesus and feel virtue flow from Him into me.
I need to fall under the power of the highest King.
I need to watch as the tides shift in our favor.
Continue reading “I Need”
Lately, it seems as if there is a heaviness residing over God’s people, a weariness over those who are fighting for Truth. On a daily basis we’re battling a multitude of issues, even within our own congregations.
It’s discouraging to see those we call brothers and sisters fighting against the infallibility of the Word because of the world’s influence and the acceptance of everything leading to the rejection of nothing.
It’s heart breaking to watch the world push away from the Lord and all a relationship with Him brings.
It’s angering to listen to the modern-day church twist and turn the Word until it’s become something God never designed.
It’s hard to stand on morals and principles that are deemed archaic and outdated.
But, to me, probably the most disheartening aspect of all we are seeing today is the fact that there are no clear lines anymore, leading to confusion of who can be trusted and who is truly on our side.
I want to take a moment to simply tell those who are feeling the weight of the sin upon this world, the sadness of watching those we thought were teammates turn from our side-your God is a consuming fire, nothing is going to stop Him from doing what He desires to do.

I believe an army of women is being raised up, to stand against the enemy and fight for righteousness, goodness, purity, judgement and freedom.
Now is the time for us to be released, for the gates to open and a charge of women to go sprinting into battle, our voices shaking the earth, causing the demons to cover their ears and cry for mercy.
There is a boldness being raised up in the bellies of women, a shout that will shake the heavens and immobilize the demons. The devil knows it and he is terrified. Continue reading “Into The Hands Of A Woman”
You are not alone, whoever you are that needs encouragement today. You will get through whatever it is you are up against, whatever enemy you are facing you will defeat, if you simply believe. There is no weapon that could be formed against you, either in the physical or the spiritual, that can harm you, do you know why? You are a child of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. You have been adopted into the line of Jesus Christ, you are royalty. Continue reading “You Are Not Alone”
Allow me to step up on a soap box for a moment.
I have been increasingly frustrated with what I’m seeing in our society, primarily in our churches. We stand for nothing, so we fall for anything. We don’t call out sin therefore those who are sinning have no idea that their lifestyle is a lie. We have stopped standing for innocence, innocence of life, innocence of adolescence, innocence in general. We allow our voices to be drowned out by the masses due to intimidation and fear.
We, as Christians, are not allowed to simply act and live as everyone else, we know better. We, as Christians, are not permitted to stay silent as the darkness creeps in. This is a battle, why are so few Christians fighting? Continue reading “Salt And Light”
My Lord, my God, I find myself needing to tell you something, something I don’t believe you hear enough: I love you.
Continue reading “I Love You”
I believe there has been a Holy Hindrance put on God’s people. Many of us have felt it, seen it, experienced it for weeks, months, years, even decades. I’m not talking about a hindrance on healings, those we know are God’s promises and cannot be kept at bay when we ask and believe they have been received.
What I’m talking about are situational hindrances-career paths, prophetic words coming to fruition, vision over our lives being shown, doors being opened.
