Daily Guidance

Do you realize that each day that we awake to the opportunity to know the one true and living God? He is only a prayer away and even though he is not visibly seen to us, it is by faith in him and what is said in his Holy Word (the "Bible")that we reach out.

Do you know the voice of God?

America was handed a new law that basically legalized same sex marriage in all 50 states on June 25th. Yes our America. I am appalled and so are most Christians. What concerns me though is how long until this new way of life will be accepted and like others shockers this decade, WE ADJUST and get complacent and nothing more is said and the fighting and arguments fade away. Then the acceptance comes and life goes on.


Many of the main stream ministers are not making waves or comments. WHY??? Because they rely on contributions to run their huge corporations, oh pardon me I mean churches. And some of the contributions are from the ‘ear itching’ liberals who get the tax write-offs for their contribution.


Well this ruling on same sex marriages will open a flood gate to other perversions in our America. The prosecution of Christians will be as never before. The times of playing church and ‘having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof’ are over if you want to hear the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ.


Jesus said in his word, “My sheep know my voice and another they will not follow”. Do you know his voice?? Really know his voice? His voice will tell you to pray, to read his word and to worship him for who he is. This will be vital to mine and your survival……knowing his voice.


We are most definitely living in the last days. We are going to see some awful persecution of the Bible believing and practicing Christians. The way to stay strong is to know his word, believe his word and know his voice.


I pray that you don’t have your conscience seared as with a hot iron. I pray that your spirit is alive in you and you believe and know that God’s Word is truth and God’s Word will prevail. One day every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. If you don’t know Jesus, you can bow your knee and confess right now that Jesus is Lord and ask him to forgive you of all your sin and he will.


We don’t have to fear what is coming upon America, we only have to trust that our Heavenly Father will take care of us.

Do you see it?

There is a story in the Bible that tells about a great prophet of God who prayed for rain because there had been a long draught in the land. He prayed and sent his servant out to see if there were any clouds in the sky in fact he sent him out seven times. The last time the servant came and told him that he saw a cloud the size of a man’s hand. That was enough for the prophet.


I don’t know what you are going through at this time in your life but I want to ask you, can you see it by faith, can you see the end to what you are going through? Can you see a little light at the end of that tunnel? Can you believe that God is there and the cloud might just be the size of a man’s hand but it can produce enough rain or faith to move your mountain.


So many times in our lives we mess up, we make mistakes and they might be small mistakes or big ones but we live with the guilt and have a hard time letting go of our wrong doing.


Psalms 103:10 says, “He (God) does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities (sin, doing our own thing)”. I want you to take that verse for you today. I want you to know that God will forgive you all of your sins and set you on the right track to recovery. There is nothing too difficult for him to do in your life.


Have you lost? Have you lost a relationship, have you thrown away trust? Do you beat yourself up with guilt and hate yourself at times?? This message is for you. START AGAIN!! Let God take you from where you are and you can have that abundance of rain (peace, joy, happiness, contentment) whatever you need.


Just believe and look up and imagine a tiny cloud in the blue skies, a cloud the size of a man’s hand…imagine and pray this: “God I don’t know how to believe that you can or will bring what I need but if you help me I will do my best. I need you desperately in my life. Forgive me of my sins and error of my own way and choices I have made. Today I start again, today I will trust you and walk through the doors that you open for me. Thank you for loving me and help me to love myself as you love me.”


I also pray for you today and I want you to believe in change and not luck. I want you to know the love of your Heavenly Father who forgives all sin. See that tiny cloud and soon it will be an abundance of rain pouring out goodness and mercy upon you. Change is coming to you and your circumstances, YES they are.

Someone to care.

A song is so vital to the joy of the Lord in our life!

I can remember a time when I was going through a divorce and I felt so beat down and had so many questions in my mind. Most of us have gone through times where our enemy told us that 'we were at fault' and we allowed him to beat us up with condemning words. He hammered into my mind the negative thoughts of, 'you could have done this', or 'thought you were a Christian, do Christians act like you?' Lies, lies and more lies he tells us because he is the father of lies and can't tell the truth but he will twist the truth.

The time and place where the Lord gave me the victory I shall never forget. I was part of a prayer team that met before each service to pray for the pastor and pray for the anointing upon the service. Even though I was struggling with defeat myself, it didn't stop me for praying for needs of others.

I sometimes like to pray setting in a chair and this particular time I was setting in the circle of chairs while others were standing or kneeling in prayer. Yes I was feeling beaten down and in almost despair. Setting with my head bent down and resting upon my hands, mainly going through the motions as I didn't feel any victory, it was like such a peace came over me and all of a sudden the old hymn, 'Someone to care, someone to share all your troubles like no other will do, he'll come down from the sky, brush the tears from your eyes, your his child and he cares for you'.....it radiated in my spirit and I began to sang it. No words can describe the love of God, even though we writers try to describe it, but until you experience it you only read 'words'. At that moment it was like a floodgate had opened and the tears of joy were rushing out of me. Tears, as Dottie Rambo wrote, will never stain the streets of that city but while we are here on earth they are a part of every humans life.

The song was coming out of my mouth as I lifted my hands towards Heaven and gave praise to my God - my Lord for his delivering power. He set me free from the guilt and condemnation that my enemy had so deeply placed in my mind. Jesus set me free by letting me feel his love and his presence and it came through a song.

This happened over 10 years ago and it was one of those 'moments' in my life that I will never, ever forget. Do you need a moment to experience a touch of God's love? Are you experiencing guilt and condemnation from your enemy? I want to encourage you today and I want to tell you that he is mindful of you. I pray that you realize he is 'someone to care, someone to share, all your troubles like no other can do, he'll come down from the sky, brush the tears from your eyes, your HIS child and he cares for you.

Today you will feel his love, today you will feel his presence, he gave me these words for you today....HE, the Lord and Saviour of this world wants you to know that he loves you.

This is my prayer and thought for today.

Do you REALLY know how much God loves you?

In the Bible the book of Matthew chapter 6, Jesus is teaching on just how much God the Father loves us. If you haven't read this chapter, please do and when you read it know that it is for YOU. Read it just like Jesus was standing before you or sitting next to you saying the words of that chapter directly and only to you.

I want to write about the part he taught about concerning the birds, mainly sparrows and ravens. Jesus said for us to 'take no thought (means DO NOT WORRY) for your life as far as what you shall eat, what you shall drink or what you shall put on (clothing). Look at the fowls of the air, they don't sow, they don't reap, they don't store up but yet.....God the Heavenly Father (and here I have to say, Hallelujah) he feeds them. Aren't you of more value than these birds?'

Are you getting this? Do you know that you are so much more valuable than a bird?

The enemy of all of us, Satan or the devil does not want us to know just how much God loves us. All the enemy wants to do is throw up to us every mistake we have ever made and tell us, 'do you really think God loves you'. Yeah that is exactly what he beats us up with lies, lies and more lies, no wonder Jesus said that the devil was the father of lies. Satan told the first lie ever recorded in the history of man. He told Eve, 'did God really say'..he brought doubt and yes confusion. Satan is the father of lies. Let's leave that for another message and let me teach you your value to God.

Do you wonder why you struggle with various trials? Do you wonder why you fight poverty or sickness or some form of constant harassment? Can I tell you the answer?

YOU don't realize how valuable you are and how much God loves you....he loves you regardless of how many mistakes you have made! Yes he loves you, please believe me that he does. Can I let you in on a little secret?

He knew you before you were formed in your mother's womb! He knew every mistake, every sin, every wrong choice, every heartache...he knew it all and he knows what mistakes are in your future. How do I know that? Because the Bible says in Isaiah 46:10 that he (God) knows the beginning from the end. You see he knows everything about all of us and yet....oh yes and YET he loves us.

The verse that is so familiar to most Christians is John 3:16, 'for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believe in him shall not perish but have everlasting life'. What I want you to grasp and realize is how much you are valuable to God. When you can realize how much he loves you all the struggles of life become less prominent.

When you realize that you can cast all your cares, troubles, heartaches and sickness upon him and he will take it and work it out.....your life will become so much easier.

Don't look at your past anymore. Speak out loud to yourself and declare this, "I am not dwelling on my past failures. Today I realize just how much God loves me. I am more valuable than the birds of the air. He will feed me, clothe me and provide for me all my needs. I accept his love for me, right now I accept that God loves me and I am someone special to him".

I truly believe that today will be a turning point for you. Know that I pray for you a special prayer today that God reveals himself to you in such a way that  you cannot doubt his love.

This is my prayer and thought for today.

Lonesome Valley

There an old southern gospel song called, Lonesome Valley and it has been resonating with me this past week. Some of the words are: ‘you’ve got to walk that lonesome valley, you’ve got to walk it by yourself, for no one else can walk it for you, you’ve got to walk it by yourself.’

Of course there are more verses in the song and the words tell you that momma had to walk it, daddy had to walk it and some of your friends had to walk but… they all walked it alone. Now I know there are Christians out there that just refuse to admit that ‘Christians walk through valleys’….well I am here to differ with you, WE DO!!!!

Lonesome?? Oh yeah it is lonesome. A valley like this can be the most lonesome place you have ever experienced. Sure it helps to have family and friends that stand with you during tough times but bottom line, you walk that valley and it is lonesome and sometimes dark but you walk it alone.

Where and when does comfort come? It comes when you pray and seek God’s help and comfort. Is he there? Can he hear you? Even though you feel like your prayers are not going anywhere and the loneliness is overwhelming, God is there and yes he hears your prayers and your cries in the night.

‘This too shall pass’ and walking the lonesome valley isn’t permanent even though when you are in that valley time goes by every so slowly. Take heart and be assured that at certain times in all our lives we experience the lonesome valley. Don’t fail to pray to God and ask him for help. He does hear you and he will move the circumstances for you. Somewhere ahead you will walk out of that lonesome valley and be able to look back on it. You will find peace and contentment again I promise you that for you see I have walked that Lonesome Valley myself.

Understanding Spiritual Warfare

The little girl was about 3 and shy, when someone ‘new’ tried to strike up a conversation she would put her little hands over her eyes, in her way of thinking; “if I cover MY eyes then THEY can’t see me”.

 Is that the mentality of most Christians today when it comes to spiritual warfare? I think it is. Just like the ostrich that sinks its’ head in the sand when the adversary approaches and the childish act of covering the eyes clearly believing they won’t be seen, well sadly that is most Christians. Not all but most.

 The Bible clearly gives us instructions and guidance on spiritual warfare. One scripture says that Satan goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, another says, ‘put on the whole armor of God as to resist the whiles of the devil’. I could fill page after page of scriptures about what WE are to do as Christians to fight the enemy for ourselves. But what do we do? What do we do when the enemy comes in like a flood? What do we do when it feels that all Hell has been turned against us?

What do we do?

 As a Christian you have been given the power to use the name of Jesus to defeat every enemy that you have. You have been given the Word of God, which is the Bible, and every word in it has power because it is real, it is holy and it is truth.

 If you don’t know a scripture to quote, let me give you one. In John 10:10 the verse is: ‘The thief comes but to kill, steal and destroy, but I (this is Jesus speaking) have come that you have life and life more abundantly’. So you say, “Thief, who has come to kill, steal and destroy me I command you in the name of Jesus to leave me now. I am a child of the most high God and I have been given the name of Jesus to use against you. Also I have the blood of Jesus applied to my life because Jesus died on the cross, shed his blood so that I can be born again, become a child of God and have eternal life so therefore you have NO authority or power over me, leave me now!”.

 It helps to memorize those words but if you can’t quote them, then read them out loud to your enemy. Shout them if you have too. Until you feel the heaviness of the situation is gone, I would keep right on speaking these words if you have to say them every day, do it!!!

 Remember you are going to have difficulties, you are going to have thoughts come at you, at times you are going to feel discouraged but the great news is that you can say the Word of God and your situation will change. Don’t accept bad times and think there is no way out; pray to God and speak out to the enemy to leave you alone.

 Don’t be intimated by the words ‘spiritual warfare’, it doesn’t mean you are going to cast demons out of someone (unless that is your God given calling) it means that you have authority to speak the Word of God over your life. It means that the enemy has to leave your situation when you use the name of Jesus.

 I pray that you understand this writing. I pray that you will have the words to say and that you are strong. I am praying for you today.

Remember Happiness???

Remember Happiness???

 There are times in all of our lives where we feel in our emotions sadness and emptiness. Where is happiness? Does it exist anymore? Is it possible to have it again?

 Do you remember happiness? As you look back on your life even as a child doesn’t it seem like it was such a happy time? I know that there are many who might read this that didn’t have constant happiness because of an abusive childhood however try to remember something that brought you happiness.

 Did (as a child) happiness come from playing in the rain? Catching fireflies at night? What about smelling cookies that your mom was baking? Do you remember taking a walk with your best friend?

 Now that I have you thinking about happiness let me assure you that you can have that happiness again!

 God has told us in the Bible (Nehemiah) that ‘the joy of the Lord is your strength’. Joy you ask, “How can God give me joy? “ Isn’t he somewhere in Heaven and he is God and doesn’t have knowledge of me”?

 Yes he is God and yes he is in Heaven but he does have knowledge of you, he created you and he loves you.  For all his creation of humans on this earth he has given us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit can’t be seen or heard with our human elements but he can be found in our spirit. So now you are saying, “My Spirit”?
 If you can believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he came to this earth from Heaven about 2000 years ago, and he died on a cross and supernaturally you can be born again, well then you can have his Spirit live and dwell in you! Long sentence I know but I had to get that all in.

Now back to joy and happiness. Even if you are already a Christian and have already accepted Jesus into your life and you haven’t experienced any joy or happiness in such a long time, then just hold on. I am writing this and you are reading this because God wants you to know joy and happiness again.

How? By realizing that you can find a peace in your mind by saying and believing this, “I am a Christian, I am not going to let my circumstances dictate or rob me of joy.  I know from the words in the Bible, (which are God’s words) that he wants me to laugh. ‘A merry heart doeth good like a medicine’, that is a promise in the Bible for me and I take that promise now because I need that medicine of a merry heart…. now”.

Do you remember a time when you laughed? Do you remember something that made you happy when you were a child? I want you to think about it and try to relive that moment. Take the time to go there in your mind. I am praying that you decide it’s time to be happy! Be determined to find happiness and joy.

This is my thought and prayer for you today! What is that I hear??? I believe I hear you laughing!!!!
