Are Your Experiencing Adversity?

As a believer in Jesus Christ, some believe it is a bed of roses. In fact, it is trials and testing for sure. But, adversity and destruction are not the tools of GOD. So while it may be overwhelming, we are not defeated or broken by the challenge.

Isaiah Chapter 41
“10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

This is a big promise to you. We read of many accounts such as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel 3:16-18. They were thrown into a raging fire but were not burned. Why? Because Jesus stood with them in the fire. Corrie Ten Boom suffered through the prison camps of Germany but survived to tell all of us about the Holocaust.

My friend, He is ready to be there for you no matter who you are because He wants you to know WHOSE you are in Him. That is my WORD OF HOPE for you, my friend.

Faith is Hope In Jesus

Psalmists have predicted with accuracy the coming of the Lord Jesus.

And He has come. Jesus is our Lord and our Savior, our Messiah.

The psalmists spoke of Jesus 1,000 years before His birth, and we are living 2,000 years after Jesus came, died, rose again and ascended into heaven where He today interceeds for you and me seated at the right hand of GOD.

Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”

What does this hope mean to you and me today?

It means preparing now for the soon return of Jesus, allowing His Holy Spirit to make every part of you subject to the King of Kings, for He alone is trustworthy and pure.

And it means waiting expectantly for the future glory that is promised that gives us hope for tomorrow!

Pray: My Lord and King, my hope is in You. Help me to remember Your goodness, prepare for Your coming, and anticipate the future consummation of Your purposes: Your eternal Kingdom

This is my Word of Hope for you today, my friend.

Are you poor and needy?

Do you feel that you are poor or needy?

Many of us go through life defeat, broken and wounded by life choices.
Broken hearted means heartbroken, grief-stricken, devastated, despondent, inconsolable, miserable, depressed, melancholy, wretched, sorrowful, forlorn, heavy-hearted, woeful, doleful, and downcast!

But, we don’t have to hurt and be broken-hearted, because God cares!

David gives us a mighty nugget of hope:

Psalm 86
“Bow down thine ear, O LORD, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul, for I am holy: O Thou O God save thy servant that trusteth in thee! Be merciful unto me O LORD for I cry unto thee daily. Rejoice the soul of thy servant for unto thee do I lift up my soul, for thou O LORD art good and ready to forgive and plenteous in mercy unto all them that cry out upon thee.”

Psalms 34:18
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

This is my WORD OF HOPE for today, friend.

Stand Firm

Darkness seems to be prevailing and evil is abounding. Christ promised that, in the midst of this chaos and deception, the gospel will ultimately reign. How will the gospel reign in today’s controversial condition? Resolute believers will proclaim it throughout the world. We can take heart, Jesus is alive today and forever.

In between now and eternity, Satan will do everything he can to distract us from God’s mission. Right when our passion for Christ is renewed, the enemy comes to thwart us with fear, discouragement, and confusion.

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

Are you standing for Truth, no matter the cost, or have you felt yourself wavering? Have you been tempted to abandon your work for the Lord because of discouragement or spiritual lethargy?

Wait on the Lord today. Ask Him to search your heart and reveal where you stand. If there is fear, discouragement, or a lack of focus in your life, allow Him to come and fill you with hope, boldness, and new vision today.

Pray: Lord, show me where I stand in the work You have called me to do. Where I have lost sight of the task at hand, renew my strength and remind me of Your vision. Thank You for loving me and leading me.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.

What would you do if you had a 110 year sentence against you?

In 2016, a major scam had robbed my business, the ministry and my family. Then, when I thought the man was paying me back, he sent stolen money. As a result, I was arrested. While in the jail, the manager of the jail trumped up seventeen malicious charges that had they been completed, they could have resulted in a one hundred ten year life sentence.

So here is how I kept my faith and my hope while behind bars.

II Samuel 22:2 says it clearly and as I said yesterday, this verse became my morning, midday and evening prayer.

“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
3 The God of my savior, In him, will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; thou savest me from violence.
4 I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.”

In my book, MY DIVINE ENCOUNTERS, I tell about meeting the C.E.O. of that very prison that told me he would drop all seventeen charges and fire the lieutenant! This is one more major miracle, divine encounters I have experienced since coming to Jesus at age twenty-four. Let my experience encourage and strengthen you because GOD cares about you more than you want to be cared for. This is my WORD OF HOPE for you, my friend.

Does His Truth Endure Forever?

According to Psalm 117, His Truth Endures Forever!

His Truth

In Psalm 117, David wrote to declare the enduring truth of the LORD that truly endureth forever. This happens to be the shortest chapter in the Bible.

Thus, as you think about God’s Word, His Word, understand that it does endure through all the ages. This is also echoed in Psalm 100.

His Word never changes! It will endure for eternity!

“O Praise the LORD all ye nations, Praise Him all ye people. For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the LORD endureth forever. Praise Ye the LORD!

No matter who you are, what you have done or what’s been done to you, His merciful kindness is a great reason to praise ye the LORD!

This is my WORD OF HOPE for you, my friend.

Like Paul, I was in prison. Are you?

As you read stories of men of GOD being imprisoned like Joshua and Paul and others, it encourages us to know no matter what we are going through, God is with us and for us. Many people live in self-made prisons of fear and anxiety. Others go to jail for many reasons. But my WORD OF HOPE for you is this:

II Samuel 22:2 tells the story of David when the LORD had delivered him from the hand of Saul.

Vs. 2: “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, the GOD of my rock and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and refuge. I will call upon the LORD who is worthy to be praised, so shall I be saved from mine enemies.”

This was my prayer for 110 days when I like Paul was thrown in prison. I saw God literally open the prison doors and deliver me NO-BILLED: Just as if it had never happened/ No charges were ever filed! It is my own prayer so let it be your own pray mantra during your own imprisonment!. Remember, the LORD is your rock and your fortress and your deliverer long with being the horn of your salvation and refuge in time of need.

This is my WORD OF HOPE for you, my friend.

Are you facing roadblocks to your faith?

The secret to growing in godliness is simply to remain in Christ, yielding to Him daily so that His will is lived out in our lives.

Growth in holiness is an essential part of being a follower of Jesus.

John 15:5
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”

Even still, there are roadblocks that threaten to sidetrack us if we’re not careful.

Titus 3:9
“But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because they are unprofitable and useless”

Paul warned Titus about four such roadblocks:

foolish controversies,
useless debates,
endless arguments,
unedifying conflicts.

Each of these detriments to godliness occurs in relationship.

When we argue about secondary matters of the faith, we take our focus off the One who matters most: Jesus Christ.

People who live to fight and debate unimportant matters can be dangerous,

The most loving thing we can do is to make room for the Holy Spirit to do His work of conviction leading to repentance.

At the same time, by removing ourselves from the conflicts and debates, we can better focus on the Lord and continue growing in godliness.

Pray: God, show me and Help me to move past these in order that I may focus on You and pursue godliness every day.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.

What would you do if you owed the IRS $10000?

Inside the “DEVINE ENCOUNTERS” book, I tell you of my own experience of finding hope in a most unsurmountable situation with the I.R.S.

I was literally days from having my assets frozen and seized by the I.R.S. They demanded I come in with my checkbook the very next Monday. However, I was going to be out of state for five days. Thus, I was assigned to a new agent. The new agent amazingly turned out to be an alumnus of my workbook called “Healing the Hurts of Abortion” some fifteen years earlier. She did not know I was the author; I did not know she was an alumnus. She told me what to write and who to send it to and ten days later I got another letter from the I.R.S. This time, abating the $10,000 penalty!

Here’s what you can take from this: never run from the roar, but always run to the roar.
Next, trust GOD for every situation you are in and watch Him orchestrate the answer you need! This is my WORD OF HOPE for you today, my friend.
