Close As I Want To Be

imageWe can “say” all we want to that we desire to draw closer to Him, but if we are not walking it out, we are deceiving ourselves. Pursuit is the proof of desire. In this week’s message, “Close As I Want To Be,” we will take an honest look at where we are really at.

I’m sure if I took a poll of believers across the Body of Christ, and asked the question, “Would you like to have a closer relationship with God?” most if not all would say “Yes”! Continue reading

His Promise Remains

 

image
Someone needs this today. Years ago while driving I saw a beautiful rainbow, and this is what I heard The Lord say, “My promise remains, it has not changed.” The same is true for you. The promises He has given to you, and you KNOW IT, have not changed. Continue believing and pursuing what He has placed in your heart. It is Him. “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭9‬ NIV

POTENTIAL Challenge

PotentialChallengeWhat is YOUR Potential – Part 1
What is YOUR Potential – Part 2

Last week I posted Part 1 & 2 of “What is YOUR Potential.” Here is an excerpt:

“Our potential in based on our purpose, and our purpose is connected to our passion. What we are passionate about, is a huge clue to discovering our purpose. Once we get down to the core of who we are, we must DO something about it. Potential stays potential until we begin to put one foot in front of the other towards our purpose.”

You aren’t doing more because no one has challenged you. So that is what we are going to do this week. So here’s the challenge. Here are a series of questions to help you discover your purpose, and examine those things in your thinking and perspective that is limiting you and holding you back from reaching your full potential. I dare you to read it (Part 1 & 2), and go through these questions and see if you don’t discover something about yourself you’ve never seen. So here we go… Continue reading

What Is YOUR Potential? – Part 2

potentialRead Part 1

All of us have been through many different experiences in life, some good some bad. Certain experiences can cause you to draw back from who you really are. If you expressed your truest self and it was met with a negative reaction in some way, it can cause you to withdraw that part of you out of sight from the world. If it happens enough times, or is hurtful enough, it can even get closed off from yourself, locked away somewhere deep on the inside of you. Over time, you can just create many different versions of yourself for the purpose of public consumption.

Most people when they come to Christ have no idea who they are. Living in a fallen world, with all the hurts, disappointments, disillusionment, and losses takes a toll on the once innocent, believing child they were. Most develop coping skills and defense mechanisms that further complicate the expression of who they really are.  Continue reading

What Is YOUR Potential? – Part 1

potentialIn Myles Monroe’s book “Understanding Your Potential”, he makes some striking statements at the beginning of the book. “Buried beneath the soil within the walks of the sacred grounds are dreams that never came to pass, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, paintings that never filled a canvas, ideas that were never shared, visions that never became reality, inventions that were never designed, plans that never went beyond the drawing board of the mind and purposes that were never fulfilled. Our graveyards with potential that remained potential.”

Only a very small percentage of people ever really experience even part of their potential. This is extremely sad. When you consider that God has a plan for each person born, few ever really walk out and fulfill that plan.

We will delve into the following questions:

What is our potential as a human being? What is my potential as a person? What is the potential of the believer? How can I find out what my potential is? How can I tap into this great wealth of potential on the inside of me? Continue reading

Prophetic Word for Miami – Jane Hamon

The Reinhard Bonnke Crusade is Friday, July 18th & Saturday July 19th at the AAA Arena in downtown Miami. All of those that have been involved in putting this together, all who have been promoting it in their churches, and those that are supporting it, are looking for a great move of God in that place and in our city.

The prayer leaders have been gathering prophetic words that have been spoken over Miami, to pray in preparation leading up to the crusade.  I was asked if we had any that we were in possession of, and I immediately went back to a conference we did back in 1999. We did a Woman of Destiny Conference with speakers Dr. Fushcia Pickett and Jane Hamon. On the Friday night of the conference, Jane gave a powerful prophetic word for Miami. Continue reading

To Know Him and Make Him Known – Part 2

MakeHimKnownYesterday in Part 1 we were looking at what it really means to KNOW the Lord. See
To Know Him and Make Him Known – Part 1

Now on to what it means to MAKE HIM KNOWN.

Making Him known is not in quoting scriptures, following a format to witness to unbelievers or getting someone to pray a prayer. Now I’m not saying that this isn’t effective in reaching people and introducing the Gospel to them. In some cases it is, and people do come to the Lord. What I am saying, is that there is a spiritually organic essence being manifested through us. The Lord is made known when we have allowed Him to imprint Himself, the Living Word upon our hearts. In so doing, we become Living Epistles.

“You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” 2 Cor. 3:2-3 (NIV) Continue reading

To Know Him and Make Him Known – Part 1

MakeHimKnownThere are two ways people know the Lord. Some know Him after the flesh, and some know Him after the Spirit. Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he UNDERSTANDS and KNOWS ME…” Jer. 9:23-24 (NKJV)

YWAM’s motto has a clear and concise mission statement: TO KNOW HIM AND MAKE HIM KNOWN.

That about says it all as far as I am concerned. It is the true high calling of the Body of Christ around the world. But do we truly know Him? This question is of utmost importance, because we cannot make Him known unless we have known Him first. We must return to the centrality of Jesus the Person. I say the Person because we can confuse the historical Jesus, knowing facts about Jesus, with truly knowing Him.

Jesus said in John 17:3, “And this is eternal life, that they may KNOW YOU, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” (NKJV) Eternal life is not based on a prayer, it’s based on knowing Him. It can begin with a prayer, but it is walked out as we come to know Him in an ever-growing, ever-deeper fellowship. To truly know Him must be our highest goal and desire. Continue reading

One Thing Is Needed – Part 2

One Thing Is Needed

One Thing Is Needed – Part 1

Loving Him is the key that opens the gates within us. If there is ONE THING in our lives that IS NEEDED, it is to learn to love Him with all of our heart, soul and mind. No wonder Jesus said it is the FIRST AND GREATEST COMMANDMENT!

“He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:21 (NKJV)

So what does it mean to love Him with all of our heart, soul and mind?
