DIVINE TREASURIES OF INTIMACY

Intimacy and love are rare today even in Christian marriages and is growing more rare each year. The greater the number of children whose lives have been disrupted by divorce, the greater the number of adults who will have difficulty in finding a satisfying intimacy. This has major implications for the future of marriage. Today we have that overdeveloped hunger for intimacy and underdeveloped skills for building it that I previously spoke of.

Honor Thy Father

The last breath in living without being active in my godly identity came when revelation surfaced about the self embezzlement I condoned. The realization that my every breath must be mentally and emotionally in concert with the pursuit of demonstrating the essence of that identity was a tsunamic encounter. From the rising of the sun to the closing of my eyes to refuel my body and soul, I must be purposeful in connecting to the daily bread assigned to me. I can only receive it by being activated in my godly identity. it is the spiritual GPS that guides me to the divine intersections established for my life. As I read Corinthians 1:25 once, I asked God what type of weaknesses did He have.His answer was His love for me;that He never stops thinking about me and every time He does it makes Him weak.I learned then never to fear rejection from anyone because the only approval I need is from my heavenly father. Everyone enjoys the affirmation of other peoples acceptance and approval. … [Read more...]

The Search For Fulfillment

Jesus is saying in John 10:10 that He came for people to have an abundant life but the thief came to kill, steal and destroy.Fulfillment is a significant common denominator for everyone because on one level or more we're all seeking fulfillment in our lives.To realize the truth of any fulfillment four things are needed. 1.I must obtain revelation: an understanding of truth at the level of my comprehension. 2.I must have a role model: because it is a part of God's order to teach and train by example.

As I talk about The Search for Fulfillment,you will see how to arrive at each principle for your life.

Panic or Power

The Israelites found themselves trapped between Pharaoh's army and the Red sea. In panic they accused Moses of leading them to their deaths. He told his frightened people,"Do not be afraid, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord". God parted the water and delivered them. What unyielding obstacles are you facing? Whatever they are, don't panic. Instead, turn to God and trust in His power to do what seems impossible."Then He said to His disciples,"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat;nor the body, what you will put on." (Luke 12:22 NKJV) "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27 NKJV). We all at times have worried about our finances, our loved ones, our jobs our health and a host of other life issues.At times it may be hard to relate to Jesus' words concerning worry. He has the perfect solution. He invites us to put our … [Read more...]

A Cup of Pain

I remember when I was offered the opportunity to become a Singles Pastor. What wonderful excitement to know that the Lord had gauged me fit to serve in an esteemed capacity. I asked Him what would be the foundation of the ministry and the answer was spiritual maturity, moral integrity and financial prosperity. Although the joy was real, I could not help remembering at times the intermittent anguish and frustration of other pastors and leaders as they worked to impart godly wisdom and encouragement to their members. At times it seemed that nothing would produce the desired results for some.I have experienced some of those same unmet expectations as I have listened and prayed for a resolution to a host of challenges that seem to engulf too many of God's sons and daughters. I have wondered why people who are devoted to serving the Lord have to endure so many trials and suffer seemingly so unjustly. Spiritually, emotionally,physically and financially, the scales of justice seem to be … [Read more...]

Stumping Your Toe

When was the last time you stumped your toe? It has been a long time since I literally experienced this phenomenon.It usually happens when in my house I'm attempting to navigate going from one location to another in the dark and knowing that I would feel more comfortable if I turned on some light. I wondered about the pain of hitting my foot against something as I was reading how Satan was attempting to persuade Jesus to jump off the highest point of a building in the book of Luke. It reads in verse 4 of chapter one that he brought Him to Jerusalem,set Him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to Him. "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here. "For it is written: He ( God ), will give His angles charge over you and in their arms they shall bear you up least you dash your foot against a stone." God created humanity with free will, the right to choose- When I choose decisions that are contradictory to the personal covenant He has made with me through my name, I hinder … [Read more...]

LONELINESS AIMS TO ANNIHILATE

We started off our pastoral career as Singles Pastors and we were very effective.  We truly loved the beautiful transformation that happened within our Singles daily,   We built it on a very strong Foundation that the Lord gave to my Husband.  We were in that position for a while with some incredible episodes of life but one truly stands out that I simply must share with you.  Since my Husband and I both have incredible Counseling Gifts, we counseled our Singles all of the time.  One particular Lady that I will call Nicola came to see me because she had just got engaged to marry one of our Singles Bible Study Men named Deon (Not real name).  As her Pastor, I objected and told her that he was very physically abusive.  She thought that that was simply incredulous because she commenced to tell me of how warm, tender and sensitive he was in their prayer meetings because he was always moved to tears during prayer.  I knew then that it was essential that she believed me because I … [Read more...]
