The Spirit of Wisdom & Revelation…

Beloved of God,

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”

(Ephesians 1:16-23. ESV)


“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be!” ~Maya Angelou

Brothers & Sisters, be who God has called you to be! We don’t need to look at others to be our “example.” We don’t have to try and “fit in.”

Jesus is our example!! We are to look at His life and ministry to see what our “normal” should look like.

Our “normal” is to be supernatural!! Why? Because we have a supernatural God living within us! The Holy Spirit empowers us to live a life beyond the “natural!” [see Mark 16:17-18; Matthew 10:8; John 14:12…]

We are empowered to be overcomers…to be world changers…to make a difference!!

God calls us to impact the world – one person at a time. And He has given us everything we need to accomplish His call!

He’s calling – are you ready?


I hear the Lord saying:

“My Spirit within you makes you MORE than a conqueror–so don’t settle for just getting by.

My Spirit within you equips you to do GREATER works than I did while walking this earth–so don’t underestimate your value in the kingdom.

Stop trusting your ability and start trusting MINE!

I AM calling you…”


Barometer or Thermostat?

[sigh]. Why do we have to lose electricity every time there is a rain storm or there is one close by. (It’s not even raining here!). 😟

And I feel the Lord giving me a spiritual application:
We can be affected by what is going on around us – even if it’s not happening to us directly! The spiritual atmosphere can cause spiritual consequences. So, the solution?


May we be thermostats and not simply barometers. May we not only discern what is going on spiritually – but may we change the spiritual atmosphere and temperature! 

 Yes, Lord!!!

May Our Walk be Worthy!

May you “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints of Light.”

Colossians 1:10-12

NEW YEAR – 2017


It’s time to leave behind those things that have bound you up;

that have kept you from living the life that God has called you to live;

that have caused you to live in darkness instead of light.


It’s time to tune our hearing to God’s frequency of sound;

to tune out the sounds of disharmony, disunity, and disappointment.  


It’s time to rise up and discard our dead, unproductive life habits

and embrace a life of faith, power, and love.




…the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart…(Matthew 15:18)

I think it is time for me to do a “heart check!” I believe it is important for us to pay attention to what comes out of our mouths. Our words have power! There is life and death in the tongue! (Proverbs 18:21) It is so easy to just let complaints and words of doubt and criticism flow all during our day. Forgive me, Lord!

The Lord pays attention to what we say (and the enemy does, too)…and we need to pay attention to the words that we allow ourselves to speak!

Dearest Lord, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will be a filter over my mouth. May I say only those things that speak LIFE and FAITH and TRUTH! Help me, Lord, to think before I speak. May I let no unwholesome word proceed from [my] mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”(Ephesians 4:29) 

May Your words flow through me, Jesus! May I speak from a transformed heart…a heart that beats in time with Yours. Speak through me this day…and all the days that follow. Sanctify and anoint this mouth to speak forth Your Word!!

Thank You, Lord!!
