STAY FOCUSED ON THE MISSION

The storms of life that we encounter in our lives from time-to-time are design to get us off focus and out of the will of God for our lives. It’s important to stay focus and be committed to the mission God has given each of us to fulfill in this earth. The enemy will use anything or anyone to get you off focus and throw all kinds of distractions at you to keep you from moving forth. It’s a hindering force to stop you, but you must press on and through it all. Stay focus on the mission. He has a purpose for the mission. No matter how big the storm or how low the valley stay focused on the mission. Your mind is all over the place when you lose focus of the mission. In addition, you have no strength to keep pushing it. Your desire to press on begins to fade away. You lose interest and your faith begins to fail. Let your strength continue to be strong so you won’t fall in the day of adversity. focus.1When you lose focus your mind begins to wander in all directions. You lose sight of the mission.  You lose sight of the vision because now you’re thinking about all the cares of the world and the issues of life surrounding you. It is design to choke the Word of God out of you where your strength becomes small.  Be determine to stay focused at all cause. Pray without ceasing and stay in the presence of the Lord. And read the Word of God every day to avoid distractions. And there may be times you never know the directions the storms are coming from which is why it’s so important to put on the “Whole Armour of God” so you’ll be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Because we’re not wrestling against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, rulers, the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places.  You have to put on the “Whole Armour of God so you’ll be able to stand in the evil day. And as you’re standing on the Word of God, make sure your lions are girted about with the truth of God’s Holy Word and the breastplate of righteousness so your feet will continue to be sharp with the preparation of the gospel of peace. And through it all take on the shield of faith so you’ll be able to quench every fiery darts that is thrown at you. Because it’s the enemy that wants you to lose focus of the mission. Continue to watch and pray in the spirit with all supplications. And pray for others saints that may be going through too. However, when that enemy comes at you like a flood, you put on the helmet of salvation and cover yourself with the Spirit of God’s Holy Word so you can remain steadfast and unmovable always abounding in the good works of the Lord.  Stay focus on the mission (Eph. 6:11-18, 1 Cor. 15:58). Jesus stayed focused on the mission. He came to seek and save that which was lost. (Luke 16:10).  He lived every day to fulfill His mission. He didn’t let anyone or anything distract Him from doing the Will of the Father. In spite of what others thought of Him He was determined to fulfill the Will of God for His life. And He fulfilled the mission that was set before him. He said Father, I have finished the work you have given me to do (John 17:4). Just like Jesus did, you and I have to continue to remain focus on the mission so we can reach our destiny in fulfilling God’s Divine Will for our lives. We cannot allow the cares of the world to come and choke the Word of God out of us. Worrying about things that’s beyond your control is a distraction. We cannot allow the opinions of other people to distract us from moving forward. Seek God in prayer and stay focus.  We all have a mission in expanding the Kingdom of God, and in order to stay focus in fulfilling that mission, we have to run with endurance the race that is set before us. And look only unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Stay focus on the mission and run the race that has been set before you.

Being a Bold Witness for Christ

Acts 4:31, And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness. Webster Definition of Boldness is a willingness to take risks and act innovatively; confidence or courage. Showing or requiring a fearless daring spirit. The Prerequisite for being a bold witness for Christ is to have confidence in the word of God and the Power of the Holy Spirit. Knowing this is your confidence in Him, which will empower you to be a “bold” witness for the Kingdom of God! Confidence is define as to have an inward certainty, to be convinced, a trust.  An assurance that stands firm upon a foundation that has substance and or boldness. Proverbs 3:26 says, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught and 1 John 5:14 “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to Evangelizing the World Workshop.FlyerHis will he hears us”. It’s through confidence in our Helper, the Holy Spirit that when we come into contact with someone, He will give us the words we need to speak, “Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer for I (Christ) will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist”(Luke 21:14-15) And In Psalms 118:8 it says, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man”, man includes the fleshly part of you.  This is how we overcome the fear of failure by trusting in the Lord with all thy heart and leaning not unto thy own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledging Him and He will direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). We must remember that the Holy Spirit is on the inside of us. He is our helper. Call upon him to help you say the right things; he already knows what you are thinking.  Remember, the person may not receive salvation the moment you share the Word with them, have a farmer’s mentality like Paul.  He said in the book of 1 Corinthians 3:6, “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase”.  So confidence in Jesus and the Word must always outweigh what we feel.  You may feel like you didn’t get through to that individual, but God has a plan and our confidence must be in God’s plan concerning that person’s life. One of the ways you can walk in confidence it to start by knowing who you are in Christ Jesus.  A good example is David.  While visiting his brothers and the Israelite soldiers on the battlefield, David listened as Goliath, the Philistine giant demanded an opponent for battle.  It was then that David asked an important question in 1 Samuel 17:26, he asked, “for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God”?  Basically, David was saying, look we are the promised people of the living God.  How can this guy think he could defeat the people who are in covenant with the Almighty God?  So walking in confidence means you must know what God says about you.  Know the promises of God and trust in them.  Later David asked permission of King Saul to challenge Goliath.  The king himself doubted that David could defeat the giant.  But David explained in 1 Samuel 17:36-37 “that the Lord had delivered him out of the paw of the lion and the bear and that God would deliver him out of the hand of this Philistine”.  This shows the inward certainty that David had in God.  Confidence to overcome feelings, emotions and bad thoughts can be defeated by remembering other trials and tribulations God has brought you through.  He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. Remember God is the one in control. All we need do is yield to His leading and He will direct our steps.  For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.  (Acts 17:28, Galatians 1:16). The Greek word translated “boldness” means “outspokenness, frankness, plainness.” That word expresses the idea of “courage, confidence, and fearlessness.” Boldness does not mean bluntness, arrogant, or rudeness. It’s knowing who you are in Christ and His Power and Ability operating in you to move and speak boldly. While being bold, we also want to be peaceable with all. (Rom. 12:18) Also, as we minister the good news of God’s Kingdom know the difference between boldness and tactfulness (be considered and courtesy) so that you do not offend someone intentionally. This type of boldness does not come from within or from self-reliance. But this Holy Boldness comes from the Creator Himself as a result of us being rooted and grounded in the Word and filled with the Spirit of God. Matthew 10:20, “For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.  And because of the faith and hope we have in Christ Jesus We’re able to speak the word with boldness. 2 Corinthians 3:12

He that win Souls is Wise. Proverbs 11:30

Come and be “Empowered” to “Change” your World

Pursue God’s Will for Your Life!

We live in a day and time where there is no time to play church or even entertain the tricks of the enemy. The end of all things are at hand. Christ return is soon!  There is a great work to be done and a great harvest of “Souls” to be reaped. The world greatest “Soul Winning Revival” is about to break forth and we must prepare the “Souls” for His return.  It’s so important for you to be free from everything that is keeping you bound. That include past hurts, failures, strife, envy, confusion, discouragements, disappointments, and so forth. Those are just a few of the many things that will keep you bound and distract you. You have to avoid distractions at all cause. Don’t entertain it! It’s a big distraction. You have to let the past go if you’re going to reign with Christ and be a part of His Winning Kingdom. There are specifics things God has called you to do. His will is what enable you to get Him involved in His plan and purpose for your life. Jeremiah 1: 4-5, the Lord gave me a message.  He said, I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.  Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the World.  You see, God had already purposed a plan for Jeremiah life before he was even born, and just like He had purposed a plan for Jeremiah’s life He has purposed a plan for your life. And since we have been surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses (Moses, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Enoch, Isaac, Jacob, Abel, Joseph and etc.) to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down. Especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress.  The Will ImageAnd let us run with endurance the race God has set before us (Hebrews 12:1). You have a particular race that God has set before you to run.  It’s a race that has to do with the divine destiny God has already planned for you to fulfill. In other words, you are to fulfill God’s plan and purpose for your own individual life.  You are not to run someone else’s race or finish someone else’s course.  For God has set a different course for you. Jeremiah 29:11-13, says 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. God has set the purpose and plan for your life. He has set the race for you to run and it’s your responsibility to discover the race that has been set for you already. And you can discover that race by spending much time in God’s presence. When you’re in His presence He will begin to speak to you and show you the race you’re supposed to run. In addition, God has given you His Word so you can know His Will. Once you discover it! Run with it! That’s the Vision! It set the pace for the directions in your life, which is the unfolding of God’s Master Plan for your life. Once you discover the will of God for your life you can be a witness in the world, on your job, in your home, and with those you meet on a daily basis. Many people already know what God has called them to do but the excuses and procrastination gets in the way. You can’t be afraid to miss it in order to pursue it! God Plan will still come to pass one way or another even if He has to raise up someone else to do it!  He can raise up the next world changer overnight.  It will come to pass with or without you! God will not allow anyone to fight Him over His Plan.  He will move one out the way and bring in another. So if you choose not to do God’s Will He will raise up someone else that will say yes and obey Him! He already have a replacement. The Gifts and calling of God is without repentance. God doesn’t change His mind! People do! Many people have gone for their choices rather than God’s plan and purpose for their lives.  Whatever God has called you to do hold a future and will bring you the greatest fulfillment in life. You will love doing what God called you to do! It’s that unspeakable “Joy”! You’ll have a burning passion deep down on the inside of you!  In fact, you’re incomplete if you don’t do it!  That emptiness you may be feeling, it might be because you’re not pursuing His Will.  He call you to do something that demands your presence in the earth and will bring Him all the Glory! Everything God promise you is wrapped up in His Will! The “Will” comes first! That’s the way God planned it. Don’t procrastinate! Don’t postpone it! Rather jump on it! And do whatever God tells you to do!

Let’s Get Back In the War Room And Pray!

It’s time to get back to praying. Let the power of God’s Fire ignite in us to get back to praying like we use to years ago. When the enemy turn up the heat, you have to turn it up in prayer! When things are not going the way it should be going in your life according to the Word of God, an enemy has done this! Somewhere you gave the enemy access. Get back to praying and take the keys back. Take back everything the devil stole from you. You can no longer do things the way the world does it. The world says it doesn’t take all that!  God says pray without ceasing! Because there’s a devil going around like a roaring lion seeking whomever he can devour. He come to still, kill, and destroy (1 Thessalonians 5: 15-18)We should never get slack in praying. Don’t stop praying. You can’t afford not to pray. WWRP.Image.Feb.ArticleA pray less life is a defeated life. When trouble is all around you check your prayer life. Are you praying like you use too when you got your first breakthrough or did you get your breakthrough and then you said you was through? Don’t you know what you did to get that first breakthrough you will have to continue to do the same thing for future breakthroughs?  Never get to a point where you feel like you have arrive without prayer. Prayer has to become a lifestyle and not something we do every now and then. If I can add, we really should be living a life of fasting and praying. Because Jesus said some things require fasting and prayer. When you’re living a life style of fasting and praying your spirit is in tune with God’s Spirit. You can hear from God clearly.  You can think clearly. You have a keen spirit whereas you’re sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. When the attacks and storms of life comes your way, you’re better equipped to handle it when you’re plugged into the power of prayer.  Prayer changes everything. When you live a life of fasting and praying you’re not ignorant of Satan devices. Exactly what is prayer? Prayer is our direct communication line with heaven. It grant us access to God. Prayer is the process that allow us to talk to God and God talk to us, and we hear Him. It involves praying the Word of God.  Saying to God what He has already said to us in His Word. Prayer is a divine connection with the Father.  Spirit to Spirit.  Your spirit bear witness with the Father’s Spirit and His Word. It’s a time of meditation and concentration. It’s in the presence of God where God is going to speak to you. It’s in His presence where He will give you clear directions and instructions concerning the will of God for your life. It is in His presence He rebukes and correct you because He loves you. In His presence He comfort and strengthen you when you’re going through. When coming to God in prayer it’s important to make sure we cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit. Perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1). Otherwise, our prayers will not be effective. As the psalmist writes, if I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me. (Psalm 66:18). The Scripture tells us … therefore that men pray everywhere lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting. (1 Timothy 2:8). People in the Bible prayed during battle, in a cave, in a closet, in a garden, on a mountainside, by a river, by the sea, in the street, in Hades, in bed, in a home, in a prison, in the wilderness, and inside a fish. There’s no reason as to why you can’t pray.  You have to make time.  Daniel prayed to God three times a day. We should pray for each other.  Jesus set an example for us on what to pray. He prayed for His disciples and for every generation to come that would follow Him. His prayer was that God protect and strengthen them as long as they were in this world. Jesus also prayed for those who would come to believe in Him through the Gospel message (John 17). When a person is without a prayer life you give the devil access into your life. You give the enemy permission to enter your home and or possibly even wreck your home. He already peeped into your future and he see how God is getting ready to elevate you. Satin can’t operate without a body so don’t grant him access.  Get back to praying and pray without ceasing. It’s your battle ground! WWP-image.blogBecause whatever you allow God allows it! The bible also tells us to watch and pray!  Many of us are watching but we’re not praying. When you’re prayed up you’re strong in the Lord and in the power of His might; therefore you take on the whole Armor of God so you’ll be able to stand in the evil days when the enemy throws his attacks on you. Because the attacks, storms, and persecutions will come. It will form but is shall not prosper when your loins are girted up with truth and you have on the breastplate of righteousness. In prayer your feet will be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. In prayer you take on the shield of faith where you’ll be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. It is In prayer you put on the helmet of Salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God. In other words, if the devil even thinks about coming near you or your family; he will blow up! Because you’re like a talking; walking; atomic bomb ready for battle with the sword of the spirit. Therefore, pray always with prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all Saints. (Ephesians 6: 10-18) Prayer now days doesn’t seem to be a necessity for many which is a trick of the enemy to make you think you can do it without God. Not so!  It’s to a point whereas people can’t even seem to pray for 15 minutes yet alone an hour. The way things are in the world today we must pray without ceasing. We’re dealing with big demons from day-to-day. Spiritual wickedness and principalities in high places. It’s bigger than you and I! It is a necessity to labor in prayer! When you are a person of prayer, no weapon formed against you will be able to prosper (Isaiah 54:17). The weapon may form but is shall not prosper! A praying person shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. You will continue to always flow in the Anointing of God with Power; Holy Boldness; the Fire of God; Grace Anointing; the Wisdom of God; the Strength of God; Increase Faith, and Divine revelations that flows from God when you live a consecrated prayer life.  You will bring forth your fruit in your season. Whatever fruit you’re supposed to bear in your season it will come forth. Your leaf shall not wither. You will never dry out or run out because whatsoever you do it shall prosper! Let’s get back to praying and empower yourself in the War Room!
