on the road to your destiny

There are many obstacles on the road to your destiny. When walking into the direction the Holy Spirit has given, He has made a way of escape from the curves, potholes, diversions on the road to your destination. Many times when we are following the Holy Spirit, we may not know the end from the beginning, but we know the leader will not lead us to the wrong place. When we are searching for Gods purpose for our life, it is the Road To Destiny that clearly takes us to His plan and purpose. Again, knowing the voice of the Lord by speaking to Him and then listening is the key to being in our purpose and finding the plan. Many times we flounder around wondering what God wants us to do, but never speak to Him to find out what the next step is. When direction is given, no matter what you see on the road, "Just Follow The Yellow Brick Road" so to speak. We must trust the Holy Spirit to lead and guide. We must know that if we just do what he said, even if you do not feel anything, stay on the course and destiny will slap you in the face. Our God is consistent and will be there right on time. He will never leave us nor forsake us. Let stay the course and see what He has for us!

Dwelling In His Presence

Psalm 91:1

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

There is a place where we can go, and hide ourselves in Him (Holy Spirit). That is the place where you find answers. You might ask how do I go there. You must learn the voice of God, pray to Him and seek the Holy Spirit to take you in the Spirit to see what is the things you should be doing and the things you need. A place where you can take comfort from the battles of life and rest in Him. Take time to listen more than speaking. Create an atmosphere before you go into the place of rest and direction with Him. The Holy Spirit likes a good atmosphere for worship. Don't limit yourself to a 5 min hand shake, go with intentions of staying until the Holy Spirit is done.

Restoring Every Step To A Right Timing

When I here the words "Restoring Every Step To A Right Timing" I think of where a person starts in the right place but gets off track and goes in the wrong direction. Sometimes when we do this, the enemy of our soul would like to keep us off track and not focused on our God Planned Assignment. When we are off track, nothing feels right to us, nothing fits or works out it seems. You get in a place of unhappiness and a feeling of being lost. Many times it is drug or alcohol experimentation that takes us there. Other times it is selfishness, a so called friend or even a relationship that can direct us in the wrong path. 
A few years ago God showed me and spoke to me about this very subject. He said these people are still in His plan, but simply need redirection by the Spirit. I began to pray about this and then I wrote the manual for RESTART ("Restoring Every Step To A Right Timing"). RESTART is a program where I invite those who are sick and tired of being sick and tired and want to begin life new and find the true path God intended. In this program, I spend a lot of time encouraging, and showing the steps to get back to where the person needs to be. I spend a lot of mentorship time one on one in phone calls, meals and sit down conversations to see where the individual is and where he feels he should be and where he felt he got off track. After many weeks , months and yes some have been years, I began to see the results of all the time investment that was given.
Right Timing is so important in our lives today. We can't sit around and be selfish and no know that God put us here for a purpose. Our biggest challenge is to find our purpose. RESTART is in place to help them do just that. Pray for the post souls of the world who just need some time with the right direction to get back on track and server the Lord Jesus Christ, listening to the Holy Spirit daily to know where to go from here. God Bless You today!

The Easy Way Out

We live in a world that is becoming more and more lazy about things and looking for the easy way out of things. The easy way out brings very little work or gratification for the work. The easy way out is becoming the norm. I heard it said that you could not walk a mile in my shoes, you could not handle it. This is very true. You can not accomplish something by looking at it or dreaming about it. You have to move and begin the task you want to accomplish. If you have always looked for the easy way out, then it will be much more difficult to get a task complete. You may require conditioning and exercise to be capable of the task at hand.
The Bible is very plain about our ways and how they affect us.
A sluggard's appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfiedProverbs 13:4 
A sluggard is only interested in eating. The diligent is interested in feeding and then being fed. Work and then enjoy, take the time to accomplish then enjoy the bounty. In my former blog I talked about the mindset. This is the order of things; get a mindset change, condition your body (Physical, Mental & Spiritual), then go to work to accomplish that which is pleasing to God and brings multiplication and addition to others. Remember this: This is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it.  You can not sleep all day and expect to see results, you must wake in the right mind and see accomplishment in Jesus Christ and accomplishment of the hands.

Mindset Means Everything!

The scarecrow thought he was without a brain. His mindset was such that he could not think, yet throughout the movie he made wise decisions to help their circumstances. We realize through this that it was not how smart he was, but the mindset he had at the heat of the moment. Mindset is everything. Our mindset will determine our promotion to the next level in our job. example: If I go to work everyday with the mindset that, what is the boss going to do for me, this will create disappointment. The same is when I go to church to see what God is going to do for me. Instead I should go to work daily to see how I can help my boss and his business, what can I do to make it better and make it grow. In church, I should enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise and be thankful unto Him. My mindset determines how I respond and react to the church service. When we face situations in our life, our mindset will determine the outcome of that situation. Mindset: "In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong."
"In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities."
"Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships."

We must be willing to listen to others to help our mindset. Some people think that being dogmatic and standing on something that was taught for years is the only way to go. This thinking takes everyone out of the seeking (God) process and put us in a (I Got This) mindset and nothing can change. Today we need to be as forward thinking at the thinkers of the past and renew our mind by the Word of God and let the Holy Spirit continue to show us, lead us and guide us to success in Jesus Christ and what His original intent is for our world today. We sometimes seem stumped in ministry today because things are changing around us. We have to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit enough to know what we need to do to change and see people ministered to. Change is life! We will see a move of God if we change, but if we expect something with out a mindset change, it will grow stale and never prosper. Let's pray and seek the face of God about the need of our people and ask for a mindset change to see the need of the world today. Heaven is awaiting!

A "Move of God"

 an improvement in the condition or strength of something.
an instance of something becoming popular, active, or important again.
I have had the opportunity to participate in many revival services.
The experience was different at each one. The one thing I found different from one to the next, is that some were just planned services and other were spontaneous moves of God that created scheduled services and the Holy Spirit hovered around these services seemingly each night. The pre-planned services were good but not life-changing and did not seem to improve the condition or strength of the people, nor did the atmosphere become more than a shout or feel good. I have been in "Moves Of God" that changed my life and the lives of many for years. It is the kind of service you reflect on year after year. One common denominator of these "Moves Of God" is the organization (Church), is usually having regular prayer times going on, to seek God about a move in the community and the church.  Regular intercession helps to move the Holy Spirit to come and change people and cause them to redirect their mindset and actions in serving the Lord. The services I attended where a speaker was invited for a "Revival Service" was good, but really become a evangelistic service to reach the lost only. This is great, but it is not revival unless people are revived and brought back to a place of right mindset and ready for action in the work of the Lord. Let's make it our priority today to see a spontaneous "Move Of God" in our regular services to see change take place in our churches.

A New Year to win the lost to Jesus

Tho it is not a popular thing to go out and win the lost, if we work daily on our jobs and at school or even in our neighborhood, we can move a community into a revival of change. Lives are being challenged with false religions and ungodly lifestyles that put a wall up to the reality of the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ. The convicting message of the cross is still real and needed. The kingdom work is still needed and it is our responsibility to share this love of Jesus.

In Him,
