What Are You Doing With Your Time?

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." 
**Godhas 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".

The Time Has Come

FAITH CONFESSION:  2012 is here, and I have officially stepped into my season of manifestation.  The excitement of walking in the promises of God have overtaken me with joy, as I receive all  that the Lord has for me. 
It is just the beginning, and I thank him for being just what He is... a MIGHTY good God!

Look Through the Eyes of Faith

Today is December 27th, and we are winding down to the end of the year.  If you are like me, you may be waiting for some promises to take place before 1/1/12. 
Today I encourage you to hold on, continue to walk in obedience to God, and trust our Heavenly Father.  As the days get closer to the 1st of the year, I get more and more excited because I know God is getting ready to do what He does best; and that is bless and
"love on" his children.
Look through the eyes of faith and you can see yourself with EVERYTHING God promised you.

Sustaining Your Faith Through Trials

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.

We're Almost There...

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 somewonderful

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.

Strengthening Your Faith Walk

How many times has God fulfilled His promises to us, and how many times do we still doubt?  No longer!  It is time for us as believers to walk in the fullness and favor of God.  I am a winner, I walk in total victory, and the promises of God are mine for the asking! Go ahead, believe God.  He NEVER disappoints!  John 11:40 - Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

Hebrews:11:6- But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
