Don’t Stop Standing

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.

Within The Waiting

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”

God Is Here

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.

New Day

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”

Consuming Fire

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.

You Are Not Alone

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”

Holy Hinderance

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.

Receive

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.

Enough

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”

My God Is Big

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”

Rejoice

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”

But God

You tried to make me feel useless, but God made me feel valuable

You tried to tell me I was nothing, but God told me I was everything

You tried to push me down, and may have gotten me down for a while, but God helped me get up, time after time

Continue reading “But God”

Send Us

Lord, let your cloak of confidence envelop us. Allow your power and ability to take the place of the heaviness of vulnerability and fear.  We need you to fill us up, overtake us, push us out and take us over. We must decrease for you to increase, So, decrease us, Lord, push us out until all that is left in each of us is you.

We can’t do this, whatever it is you desire for us to do, but we know you can do it. So, God, wipe us out and build us up again, but, this time we will be built upon the firm foundation of the truth of the Word instead of the lies of the world. Continue reading “Send Us”

Cannot Fail

I’m not walking in my own strength, I’m walking in the Lord’s, therefore I will go faster and farther than I ever imagined.

I’m not understanding with my own mind, I have the mind of Christ, therefore I will understand things far beyond my ability to comprehend.

I’m not fighting with my own weapons, I have the full armor of God, therefore no sword can pierce me and no enemy can defeat me.

Continue reading “Cannot Fail”

God’s People

The Lord did not allow David to fail, no matter how many times Saul tried to kill him or how many battles he fought, David was victorious because he was God’s man.

The Lord did not allow Esther to fail, regardless of the attacks on her uncle’s life or the fact she could have died when she went before the King, she was God’s woman.
