I would like to share with you the message I preached at a church in Melbourne, FL. I pray the Lord will strengthen and bless you through it!! Blessed be His most Holy Name!!
There are things you are praying about that you would like to see happening in your church, in your family, in your job, or in your community. I would like to challenge you this morning! Maybe the Lord wants to use YOU as the vessel of this change!
Are you waiting for the Lord to bring His Change through someone else??
Maybe the Lord is waiting on YOU!!
Are you willing to be the VESSEL OF CHANGE that He can use for such a time as this?
Are you ready to say YES?

The New Year is upon us!
I hear the Lord calling us to a deeper faith…a stronger faith…a focused faith.
We are being called to take a leap of faith! We are being propelled by the power of the Holy Spirit to leave our “comfort zone” and make a leap into our future!
I see the Lord lifting us up and above those things that would hold us down, The wind of the Holy Spirit will carry us over those places that seem impossible to navigate.
Don’t look down…don’t focus on your ability to make the jump! Look up!! Focus on the Lord and HIS ability!
Get ready!! Focus!! Breathe deeply and let the breath of God fill your lungs!!
TAKE THE LEAP!!
Sometimes I will be talking to someone and the Lord will give me a Word for them. It will be a Word of encouragement…a Word of calling forth what He has purposed for them.
Sometimes it will be a Word directly from the Bible and sometimes it will be a Word from His heart to theirs.
This can happen one-on-one or it can happen in a group situation when I am teaching, preaching, or giving a message.
It can happen when I am walking into a store and the Lord will show me someone He wants me to go to and speak His love for them. I can choose to walk away and not be obedient to His call…but His Word stirring within me is indeed like a fire burning in my bones!
It also happens when I am on social media. I can be looking at a photo and the Lord will speak a Word to me as I’m looking at it. This happened recently with an “eagle photo” a friend of mine posted. I will be writing a post with this Word soon.
Also, many times as I’m writing a comment or a private message to someone…the Lord will begin to speak a specific Word to them that I find myself typing. It’s not planned…it just flows forth.
Ahhhhh Lord! Continue to speak Your Word through me!! Continue to breathe on the fire that is within me and make it burn brighter! I am forever Yours, Almighty God!!
I kept getting notifications on my phone that significant storms/weather were coming to my area. I could see the flashes of lightning and hear the rumbling of the thunder in the distance. As I was listening, the thunder got louder as it moved closer.
Past experience has taught me that during storms my electricity has a good chance of going out. With darkness coming, I began to make my preparations in the event this happened.
As I began my preparations, I heard the Lord speaking:
A SPIRITUAL STORM IS SWIRLING IN THE ATMOSPHERE! ARE YOU MAKING PREPARATIONS?
I AM CALLING MY WATCHMEN! I HAVE GIVEN YOU EYES TO SEE AND EARS TO HEAR WHAT’S COMING. STAY ALERT! SOUND THE ALARM WHEN THE ENEMY IS DRAWING NEAR TO THE GATES. CALL FORTH THE ARMY!
I AM CALLING MY WORSHIPPERS! GO BEFORE THE ARMY WITH SINGING AND DANCING. SING A NEW SONG! DANCE A NEW DANCE! A NEW SOUND IS GOING FORTH THAT WILL BREAK STRONGHOLDS AND BIRTH DESTINIES! RELEASE THE SOUND!
I AM CALLING MY PROPHETS! LAY ASIDE YOUR OWN AGENDAS AND TAKE UP MINE. SEE WHAT I SEE AND HEAR MY VOICE. I AM RELEASING MY PRESENCE IN A GREATER WAY. SEEK ME…DRAW NEAR TO ME…FEEL MY HEART. SPEAK FROM THIS HEART CONNECTION YOU HAVE WITH ME.
I AM CALLING MY PEOPLE! DO NOT REACT TO CIRCUMSTANCES GOING ON AROUND YOU WITH FEAR, ANGER, HATE, AND DIVISIVENESS. DON’T LET EARTHLY CIRCUMSTANCES DRAG YOU DOWN, BUT LET ME RAISE YOU UP! RISE UP LIKE ON THE WINGS OF EAGLES AND SPEAK MY WORD OVER EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE. SPEAK LIFE! SPEAK PEACE! SPEAK RECONCILIATION! SPEAK RESTORATION!
A SPIRITUAL STORM IS COMING! ARE YOU MAKING PREPARATIONS? DRAW NEAR TO ME, BELOVED. TAKE MY HAND AND LET US FACE THE STORM TOGETHER. MAY WE SPEAK TO THE STORM IN ONE VOICE!
STAND UP! HEAD UP! EYES FORWARD! MY BANNER OVER YOU IS LOVE! ONWARD & UPWARD, MIGHTY WARRIORS OF LOVE!
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…”
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8 NIV
We are told in Scripture to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5). Our mind is indeed a “battlefield.” Satan loves it when we focus on everything wrong in our lives. He loves it when we focus on our past mistakes and let those mistakes stop us from going forward in Christ. He loves it when we wallow in self pity and see ourselves as less than who we truly are – who Jesus says we are!
We are more than conquerors; We are chosen and dearly loved; We are the bride of Christ; We are empowered through the Holy Spirit to be who the Lord has called us to be and to do what we have been called to do!
Rise up, warriors of the Most High God! Get out of the pit of despair and frustration and regret and lift up your eyes and see your destiny!!
Cut off the chains that are holding you back!
Shake the dust from your feet and go forward in God’s Love and Power!
