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”
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”
So many of us have been praying, constantly and continually, for breakthrough, overflow, healing, finances, promotion, etc, etc, etc. We have been going before the Lord and begging Him to be seen, to be shown in a major way in our lives, to fight the battle we all know is at hand.
This morning while praying, I was going through what I always go through. “Lord, I pray over my family, Country, President, the Remnant,” but when I got to the part of praying for myself and the things I am persistently asking God for, I felt a “halt” in my spirit, something that said, “Stop praying and start receiving”.
I don’t know why I feel this and I don’t know when I will see it happen, but I believe God has maneuvered His people into a place of complete dependence on Him, therefore He can now do what He desires to do in our lives.
Continue reading “Receive”
Without you, my world stands still.
If I don’t have you, I’m surrounded by darkness.
When I try to make it on my own, I end up lost, broken and hopeless.
You give me the confidence I need to step forward, the strength I crave to take a chance, the boldness I can’t live without if I’m to do what you’re calling me to do. Continue reading “All Of Me”
Yesterday morning, while talking to the Lord, I told Him, “God, one of my favorite things about you is that there is no gray area. You are black or white, there is no in-between”.
We live in a society where everything is mixed and confusing; right is often perceived as wrong and wrong is accepted as right. Marriage has been molded into something God never designed it to be, the killing of innocent life has been named “healthcare”, genders apparently no longer exist and everything we do is based off of “feelings” regardless of spiritual facts. We, as a society, have lost our way in the night because we allowed the darkness to push out the Sun. Continue reading “No Gray Area”
My heart cries out, not in pain, but in reverence to my Savior, the one who overcame so I might overcome. He handed over His deity for mortality, His crown for thorns, His royal garments for swaddling clothes and His palace for a manger. He handed over everything He had known since the beginning of time in order to come to a world He did not know to live a life He could not fully understand to sacrifice Himself for people who would not want Him.
Over 2,000 years ago, my Jesus walked willingly into this world, although He knew to walk meant to die. He came here, for me and for you, even with the complete understanding that one day He would be betrayed, beat, whipped, nailed and hung upon a cross before those He once considered friends, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. Continue reading “Choose Jesus”
Your love consumes me, from the crown of my head to the souls of my feet. It is all around me in a physical way, like I’m in a room filled with breathable water. It makes me strong, capable and able. No, I do not always feel those things, but I know those things are with me, around me and in me.
You make me enough, you make me brave and bold. You make me beautiful and brilliant.
Your love pushes out all the doubts the world bombards me with and replaces them with abilities I didn’t know I had. Continue reading “Enough”
I know that regardless of what is going on around me, things will be okay. It doesn’t matter what is coming at me, pushing against me or the chaos behind me, I just believe my God is going to take care of me.
It is interesting being in this place with the Lord, it’s new. I have walked into a different room with God and I know that what is in the past must remain in the past. I can no longer doubt, for God has brought me through too much to believe He won’t do it again and again. I can no longer complain, for God has fulfilled every promise so far, what makes me think He won’t continue to fulfill? Continue reading “My God Is Big”
When the world presses in around me, puts walls in front of me, behind me and all around me, I believe the Lord is about to bust down the surrounding barricade.
When I feel least like worshiping is when I will worship the most for I know my worship will usher in the blessing. It doesn’t matter what my feelings tell me because feelings are not facts and are often in opposition of faith. The only truth I have to hold on to are the promises from God. Continue reading “Rejoice”
What has God told you, when you shut out the world and allow time for just the two of you?
What has God said to you, when you are walking through a battle and He gives you a word to lighten your spirit?
What has God promised you, when it seems as if the night is closing in but then His voice pierces through the darkness?
Continue reading “Your God”
What do I have need of that God cannot provide? What battle could I face that God could not win? What enemy could come against me that God could not defeat? Is there a mountain too high for Him to climb? Is there an ocean too deep for Him to swim? Is there a valley too wide for Him to cross? Is there anything too great or mighty for my God, for your God? Continue reading “Overcome”
“Destiny is the Loudest Silence You’ll Ever Hear” -Dr Myles Munroe
My loudest silence is the need, the continuous and constant desire, to advance the kingdom in some way. I don’t want the impact I have in this life to be a small one, I desire for my impact to be massive, like a valley that can fit an ocean or a mountain that stands high into the skies.
The loudest silence in my life is the need, the continuous and constant ache, to love people like Jesus loves them. Jesus didn’t love in a light way, he loved deeply. He loved enough to call sin, sin. He loved enough to refuse to allow darkness of any kind into His life. He loved enough to draw people away from lifestyles that drew them away from Him. Jesus loved enough to take the stripes, bare the cross, wear the crown and the tattered and torn robe, hang on that cross and tell the Father to forgive them, forgive us, then proclaim it is finished.
