Gods Love

We attempt in our human nature to understand God; to fully understand His love. But is it possible to come to a place of fully understanding His love for us? Or is there always going to be a gap in our understanding of His love because the mere fact remains that we are yet humans and He is divine. I believe at the most fundamental level of understanding, it is possible to grasp a concept of His love. But apart from His Spirit our understanding of His love will be limited to human reasoning. You see, how is it possible to understand a love that would sacrifice ONE to save all and at the same time leave all to chase the one? How is it possible to understand a love that knows the beginning from the end yet didn't remove all the hurt and pain that has been and is yet to come? My point is; within our human understanding it's impossible. Many very intelligent people throughout history have tried to bring reason and logic to how God loves. But apart from His Spirit it is impossible. It will just leave us with more questions and leave us more confused. We must allow His Spirit to help us in our understanding of His love. We must allow His Spirit to guide us into all truth. It is only by His Spirit that we can let go of our human idea of love and fully grasp a love divine!

The Power That Is At Work In You

Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,


What Power works in you?

The answer to this question is so important that it can save lives.  It is amazing power that is made available to who so ever will. It is exceedingly abundantly above all.

Stop a moment!

What is up with all these adjectives lined up in one sentence? Isn’t just one of those good enough?  Well apparently not to the writer of those words, it was necessary to answer the question that I have asked at the beginning of this paragraph, what power works in you?

It is Exceedingly = extremely, to a great degree, extraordinary. Did you catch that? It is “Extreme to a great degree, way past ordinary, which makes it extraordinary.” That is just the first adjective used, look at the next:

Abundantly = very plentiful; more than sufficient; ample.  So 1+1=2!! Watch what happens when we add them together.

It is extreme to a great degree, way past ordinary, very plentiful and ample so that it is more than sufficient. Sounds pretty good so far, doesn’t it?

Check the next Above = higher than, beyond, superior and All = If I cut the pie into 4 pieces then eat every piece and leave you absolutely nothing, than I have had it ALL.

Here it is put ALL together!!!!!!

It is extreme to a degree, way past ordinary, very plentiful and ample so that it is more sufficient, higher than, beyond and superior to absolutely all you could ever ask or think.

This is the answer to the question above. The power that works in you is God’s grace that gives you the ability to have what is expressed above in the combined meaning of all those adjectives.


How do you measure up to that?  Is that How real God and His power is in your everyday life? The real question is;

WHY NOT??????????


THE ANSWER Is:   We have believeD a LIE!!!!!!!!!!!


The Lie we believe is unique to our circumstances and situations, but it is the same in its base intent. It always challenges the power of God!! It makes situations, circumstances, and experiences greater than the Power that God has revealed in His Word.

God is Real and He is Alive!!!!!!                                                                                                            

That’s Right >>>He is Alive


The ordinary Christian should be filled with so much power that people see Jesus working in and through them. Jesus said; Joh 14:12 ¶ “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater [works] than these he will do, because I go to My Father.


That’s is enough for you to think about for awhile

The Power That Is At Work In You.

John 14:12 ¶ "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater [works] than these he will do, because I go to My Father. (read verses 12-15)
Do you believe that this scripture really means what it says?

Many commentaries say that this scripture was directed and meant only for the apostles.
Does that sound right to you?
You see, it is hard to comment on something that you have never seen or experienced yourself. If you can't see, hear or experience something, then it either doesn't exist or
Not until you realize Jesus came to the earth to establish His kingdom will you be able to understand the authority that has been given to you.
Lu 10:19 "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.


That is the authority that God, through His Son, has given you. You can walk in the power of His Kingdom because you were conveyed into it when you were born again!
Col 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed [us] into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
When you by grace REPENT (change your mind and follow Jesus!!) and Believe , you change allegiance. You were once allies with the prince of this world (Eph. 2:1-2), the devil.
That's right,
if you are not for Him (Jesus),
you are against Him.
But, once you repent and believe, you are received by God into His Kingdom even into His very family! As a member of His family, you have the privileges that come with being in it.
What privileges might that be???
You have the privilege of being able to do what He has done and the works that He calls you to perform.
What Works??… works that I do he will do also; and greater [works] than these he will do…






You can get started right Now!!! You don't have to wait for some special moment. The special moment is the moment you believe what He has said.  The moment BY GRACE you choose to believe you are filled with His power and authority, you will start walking in
Signs, Wonders and Miracles.

So don't wait, get started now.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!

Gods been speaking to me about His work in my life. I find myself going through seasons where I feel Him intimately involved in every detail of my life; there's just an overwhelming sense of His divine love. This is usually followed by a season where it's a little more difficult to sense Him at work in my life. God has really began to show me that in the seasons where His presence is so intimately involved with all I do is the time that He is planting something in my life. It's the beginning stages of what He's wanting to accomplish in my life. It's infused with His love and comfort! It's after the planting season and during the process of it taking root that I usually sense Him pulling back a bit; I know He's always there and that He will never leave nor forsake me but I sense a deepening of my faith in Him in this season as I deeply seek Him. It's a time where He's planted something and He's wanting me to go into His word and to allow His word to water and feed that which He planted in my life. This is where my faith begins to rise and my eyes begin to be open to what He's trying to accomplish in me. This season at times can be difficult because there's a pressure in my life to surrender to that which He is doing. But there is nothing better than coming to that place of full surrender to His will. It's in these times that this scripture resonates within me: "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"(Philippians 4:11-13 NKJV). So no matter what season you are in know that He is there. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He is always at work in you perfecting you(Phil. 1:6). His love for you never ceases! Allow Him to complete that which He started in you!

Be Blessed!!

Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” (John 13:7 NKJV)

The disciples couldn't fully understand what it was that Jesus was doing. He was accomplishing something that superseded their ability to comprehend at that time. Yet what He was doing was not only for their betterment but for the betterment of the world.

We may not always ...understand what it is that God is doing but we must rest in that fact that He is at work and at some point we will understand what it is He is doing. His ways are higher than ours! Because of His divine nature the way in which He expresses love will not always make sense to us but the truth remains that He does what He does out of love. He has our best interest at hand and even though we must walk through some dark times He is with us and at work in us for our betterment. No matter how dark your situation seems, no matter how big your problem is, Jesus is at work. And just as King David had to do in his time of extreme disappointment so must we! In our darkest hour we must "strengthen ourselves in The Lord". Don't give up, don't give in, if you keep on running, you will win!

Be blessed!!
“Show me your vision and I’ll show you your future.”
— Dr. David Yonggi Cho

Don't give up! Continue to dream big and continue to pursue it no matter how difficult the road gets. Look at Joseph in the Bible! He dreamed big and it was followed by much hardship. The journey to seeing your dreams fulfilled isn't always smooth. But keep the course and keep your faith and in due time you will see it come to pass. Don't lose hope! God has great things in store for you, just believe!

It is Never too Late to Conquer Your Enemy

1Ch 4:42 Now [some] of them, five hundred men of the sons of Simeon, went to Mount Seir, having as their captains Pelatiah, Neariah, Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi. 43 And they defeated the rest of the Amalekites who had escaped. They have dwelt there to this day.

In this passage of Scripture we find the sons of Simeon defeating the remnants of the Amalekites that had escaped from David and Saul. Even though they were in the land of Edom (Esau’s descendants), and it had been hundreds of years since the initial conquest of the Land by Joshua, they conquered the Amalekites and lived on the land as an inheritance. The interesting thing about these verses is the names of the captains from the family of Ishi.

Let’s look at the names:

Ishi = “He saves me”

Pelatiah =" Jehovah delivers"

Neariah =" servant of Jehovah"

Rephaiah=" healed of Jehovah"

Uzziel =" my strength is God"

Here are four captains that clearly have names that reflect the nature and character of God. Just think about these men’s names for one moment. Every time someone would call them, they would here, God Saves Me, God delivers, Servant of God, Healed by God, and my strength is God. No wonder these men could lead the others, their very names would lead them to trust in the God for whom they had been named. These men conquered the enemies of God and took what had been theirs for their own.

The prophetic significance of this is really awesome. Paul tells us that we are to put off the old man, the former behavior of our lives before Christ. Well the good news that we can learn from this short story in the Chronicles is we always have time to overcome what remains of the old nature. Hallelujah!
