What Are You Doing With Your Time?

Posted on January 11, 2012 at 11:07 AM Comments comments (102)
This past Sunday, Pastor Johnson preached a powerful message where he posed the question, "What Are You Doing With Your Time?".  I think that the question is not only relevant, but actually a vital link in maximizing our faith in God. James 2:17 says that, "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." 
 
**God has blessed us with the gift of time, but what are we doing with it?  Some would say that we "waste it" or are "killing it".  However I encourage us to "invest it" and "use it wisely".
 
By profession, I am an elementary-school teacher.  On students' report cards, I have to grade them in a performance category that judges whether or not they "Make Wise Use of Time" based upon their works.  If God were to grade you in that category, what do you think your grade would be?  Would you get an "S+", "S", "S-" or an "N"? 
 
Saints, we must work while it is day, for the day will come when no man can work. (John 9:4).  Being that we have not yet reached perfection, there is still room for improvement with our use of time. Redeem the time at hand, because the days are evil...(Ephesians 5:16)
 
**Please note that "God has" should of course, be separated.  However, after multiple attempts to try and correct this error, the words are still showing published as "connected" despite my corrections to the blog. 
 

Sustaining Your Faith Through Trials

Posted on December 19, 2011 at 2:42 PM Comments comments (33)
Sometimes, things can be the same for so long, it is hard to even imagine that God can change them.  Realize that this is a trick of the enemy to make you doubt God, and the promises that are rightfully yours for the asking. 
 
Stop living in fear and start proclaiming what is rightfully yours.  Speak it out loud into the atmosphere.  Whatever it is that you are believing God for, trust him and stand on His Word. 
 
He has not turned a deaf ear to your cry, He has not forgotten, and He definitely knows right when to step in. 
 
Remember, WHENEVER He shows up, is "on time"!

We're Almost There...

Posted on December 12, 2011 at 12:07 PM Comments comments (35)
The end of the year is approaching quickly, and a lot of us believers have some "orders" that we placed with God that need to be filled by December 31, 2011, 11:59:59. 
 
So, what do we do in the meantime?  Praise Him in advance for what He is about to do.  If you REALLY believe that you are going to get what you have been praying for, you will praise Him like you have already received it!
 
Personally, I know that Pastor and I are in for some wonderful
God-given blessings this month; and we are waiting and praising with GREAT expectation!
 
Want to know what I love about God?  He always does above and beyond what I could ever ask or think.  Why?  That's just the way
The Father is!
 
Reflect on the scripture, regarding Abraham:
 
"He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform."
(Romans 4:20-21)
 
 
Hold on saints, we are almost there...
 

Make Sure You Qualify

When walking in faith, remember that you cannot reap the full blessings of God without qualifying. 
 
We MUST live holy before Him and present our bodies a living sacrifice unto Him, which is our reasonable service.  Don't "short-change" yourself by choosing to live beneath your privileges by knowingly walking in sin.
 
Go ahead and get EVERYTHING God has for you.  It is yours for the asking!
 
God is waiting to bless us, but we have to qualify.  Don't be your own hindrance.  Change your walk...TODAY!

Enduring in Your Faith

Let us always remember to thank God for those new mercies that we see every morning; and after we have given thanks, stand assured with great expectation that God is going to do JUST WHAT He said He would do.  Remember, FAITH is not believing that God can, but knowing that He WILL!

Be driven by your Faith

There was a man by the name of Bartimaeus who really needed something from Jesus.  The crowd told him to be quiet, but he cried out even louder.  He caught the attention of Jesus, made his request known, and received his healing.
While walking in faith, be careful not to follow the crowd; they could possibly hinder you from receiving your blessing and fulfilling your destiny in Christ.
