LIVE TODAY IN ALL CAPS!

Psalms 51 verses 12-13 say that David has just blown it… He has sinned.  He has messed up BIG!  We see however that he is running back to God and this is his prayer…

“Father, Restore unto me the JOY of thy salvation” and then … ”I will teach transgressors thy way and then sinners will be converted into you.” 
NOTICE…When do they do this?  WHEN THE JOY OF THE LORD is RESTORED unto YOU!  THAT is WHEN YOU ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE for the Kingdom of God.

Now do you see why the enemy fights so hard to steal it?

Joy is Strength!

JOY is a TRUE Spiritual FORCE.

Nehemiah 8:10 SAYS…THE “JOY” of the LORD is your strength. When the enemy wants to pull you down he goes after your Joy first.

You might be saying, I hear you but man…I’ve got issues…my family has some issues. Listen, we ALL DO!  If you don’t think you have issues then “that’s your issue!”  I’m sharing that with a bit of sarcasm but actually that does seem to be “the issue” for some folks, they believe they are reaching perfection.

John 15:1  JESUS said: “I have told you this so that MY joy be in YOU and your JOY may be COMPLETE.  IN LIFE you will have good times and bad times.”  But then JESUS said…”I want my JOY (my strength) to be in you and your JOY to be complete.”

We don’t base our JOY on our circumstances WE base our JOY on the WORD OF GOD!


Hang on to your joy; don’t let the enemy or anyone steal it.  It’s the strength you need to be most effective and to finish your race with JOY.

Stellar

Ever wish you could be famous?
Do you dream of being on TV, or in magazines?
Perhaps you desire to become a household name?

I get that.

What about having your face plastered on billboards all across the world?
Or, having your name on the side of a building? Or two. Or more!
(What do you think Donald thinks when he pulls up in front of Trump Towers?)

Yeah, that would be cool.

What about a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?
Or having your name sold to become a franchise?
(What’s that you’re wearing? Oh, those are Steve Madden’s?)

Sweet, huh?

What about all those statues and monuments of famous people who did great things?
The Lincoln Memorial…The Wright Brothers…Thomas Edison…

That’s cool.

Hey, I would like to be a famous Missourian.
But, the only one who thinks of me as a celebrity is my Grandma.
And she thinks I hung the moon.

Strangely, I am happy with that!

But here’s the deal…

Birds will poop on your statue.
People will walk all over your star.
And the paparazzi? They will follow you everywhere…

Sure, some see it as a big honor—in the here and now.
Yet, the truth is, you can’t take it with you.
And it doesn’t matter how famous you are—when you die—you’re mortal.
Just like the man who sells newspapers on the corner or the person who served you at the drive thru.

Elvis died. Michael Jackson died. John D. Rockefeller died.
Did any of them take their fame and fortune with them?
No.

Join me in thinking BIGGER.
WAAAAAY bigger!
Like out of this world bigger!

Like…..FOR-EV-ER.
Yep! I am talking’ the big “E”!
Eternal.

Why settle for fleeting fame when you—and everyone you know–can achieve Daniel 12:3 (AMP):

Those who are [spiritually] wise will SHINE brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead many to righteousness, [WILL SHINE] like the STARS forever and ever.

Now we’re talking!

When you tell people the “greatest love story ever told,” they are lead to righteousness and eternal life by accepting Christ. And, they in turn, will become busy doing the same as will their next generation, and so on …

Announcing to the world that God IS indeed ALIVE…and on the throne.

Now that’s something worth doing.

Those who are [spiritually] wise will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead many to righteousness, [will shine] like the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12: 3 (AMP)

 

Help is On the Way!

Do you really believe today that God is fully aware of your needs, your desires, your
hurts, your fears? Do you believe that He holds your heart and your future?
I do! I really do…

Just take a glance at what He says…
Psalms 145:18 “The Lord is near to all who call on Him.”
Isaiah 46:4 “I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.”
Psalms 37:23 “He delights in every detail of their lives.”

Obviously He sees, He cares, and He loves.

Please, hear me today!  No matter what storm you’re facing, what valley you’re walking
through, no matter what doctor’s office you’re sitting in, no matter what financial
brokenness you’re finding yourself in…HE REALLY CARES! HE REALLY LOVES YOU!
This IS not the END! When all else fails, when no human on this earth has the answer.

HE does! HE really does!

Seek Him, get alone, and withdraw to a quiet place.  Shut off your phone, shut off the
noise of the world which is commanding your attention and just ask for Supernatural
HELP from a Supernatural Father who ALWAYS takes care of His kids.  Then after
you’ve spoken to the one who holds it all…Simply trust.  Trust.  Just TRUST. Yes, THAT
simple.

As you trust.  Watch…watch what you prayed in the supernatural come to pass in the
natural, sometimes suddenly, sometimes daily.

He is setting up appointments. He can stretch that dollar; The call, the text has already been sent. He’s never let you down and He won’t start now.  He will move heaven and earth to Help you, you simply have to ask.

He is GLORIOUS!

HE is FAITHFUL!

He is LOVE!

Mark 11:24 “You can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” ~Jesus

Live Loved

~No matter who you are or where you have messed up…know you are deeply loved~

Have you been misunderstood? Maybe this morning you where, it happens a lot to men I think.  I have learned that I need to THINK before I open this mouth.  But when we are misunderstood it’s extremely frustrating.  It can really put us in a bad spot.

Well, I think God gets put in that spot A LOT!  I think a lot of us misunderstand who He is and like us He may be saying, “No that’s really not how I am or what I’m saying.” God does not have the best Public Relations team.  Those that are representing Him are, well… “People!” They have their own view of who God is and how they see Him.  The bottom line today is that I pray, yes this very moment as you are reading this, that you would once and for all get your eyes off the church that let you down, or the pastor, friend, who was “the Christian” in your life that totally crushed you and hurt you.  For a moment get your eyes off all that and focus on HIM.

YOU can’t even comprehend HOW much HE LOVES YOU. I’m praying that you and I get a fresh revelation of HIS LOVE.  He won’t misunderstand because He knows your heart.  Lean in to Him today, He has everything you need.

“38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38

He is with you

GOD is as close to you as the air you’re breathing.

HE IS JUST THAT CLOSE!

He sees the hurt.

He knows the trouble.

He knows your rent is due and you don’t have enough.

He knows you need peace in your home and in your family.

He knows your doubts and your struggles. He knows what keeps you up at night.

He is there with you.  The ALL knowing, ALL seeing God is present in your NOW!

What do we do then?  You ASK FOR HELP.  When you ask for this supernatural help He will give it to you.

Jesus said this. Whatsoever things you desire…sounds like anything you need…Believe you receive it and YOU will…(wait for it)…HAVE IT! KC didn’t say that… JESUS said that!   If JESUS said it you can count on it happening.  Mark 11:24

He hears you.

He loves it when you believe Him for things.

For without faith it’s impossible to PLEASE God!  Heb 11:6

So Believe my friend and pray with a full heart of faith knowing that He loves you.  He hears you and reaches out with the hand of grace and mercy.  We in faith must say,”That’s mine.” Then Praise Him before and when the answer comes.

REAL…SUPERNATURAL…HEAVENLY HELP!  It’s yours. Just ask! What are you waiting for?
