Daily Inspiration-Lean Not On Your Own Understanding!

Do not be discouraged if things are not going quite as you would like.  There are ups and downs in each life.

In time, things do change.  Know that and hang in there!

For it is written:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding…”

Proverbs 3:5

“Blessed are you who hunger now, For you shall be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, For you shall laugh.”

Luke 6:21

Stay Equipped, Empowered, Kingdom focused! ©

Remember, it is always a heart issue!

“Yet who knows whether you have come to the Kingdom

Daily Inspiration-Who’s Got the Wheel?

The first month of the year sets the foundation for your year ahead.  It is the first fruits of your year.  Many fast during January to hear God for direction.  Many dedicate the year to Him.  Many resolve to create change through making long lists of New Year’s resolutions.  Usually, in short order, all is forgotten and life returns to whatever it was last year.

Fasting, dedicating and resolving are good but it is really what is at the heart of all these things that is important.  If doing these things by rote each year or because your church is

‘Pray the States!’

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation.   Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people.    We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).  We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue.  Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.

Daily Inspiration-The Journey of the Magi Toward the Epiphany

The Journey of the Magi

Toward the Epiphany

In reading Daily Guideposts, 2017, I came across a devotional written by Rick Hamlin.  He was sharing about his family tradition of putting up a crèche.  His son, who “…was always a stickler for detail,” set the family tradition so that the wise men did not get put in the manger until January 6, the Epiphany, when they actually visited the Christ child.  Until that time the wise men were placed on a distant table facing the crèche to represent their journey.  In addition, the baby was not placed in the manger

A Word for 2018

 During the first of each year I like to seek the Lord for direction for the coming year.  What follows is a word in season for all raised up ‘for such a time as this!’

Stay totally focused on Kingdom.  Do not look to the left or to the right.   Do not look at any situation in the natural with natural eyes.  Arise!  Rise above all that is worldly…eyes on Me and Me alone.  Do not try to figure out what you may see with natural eyes right in front of you.  I go before you.  I am your rear

A New Year…2018!

Let God Make Your New Year

New!

Here we are once again on the precipice of a new year!  As 2017 draws to a close what do you envision for your 2018?  This past year may have been quite wonderful for you.  Perhaps it was most challenging.

It is easy to focus on the negative in life.  So much negativity floods the news media daily.  You are bombarded with continuous updates of frightening happenings around the world.  This endless barrage of negative can cast a dark shadow on your life if you are not careful.  Despite whatever took place look

God’s Word Trumps the Voluminous Doctrine of Man!

 At a Christmas gathering someone asked me if I thought that the Pastor’s speaking ability was what would lead me to go to a given church.  My response was that it matters not where you sit on Sunday but rather where you sit daily.  A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is what should lead you.  Sitting at His feet daily and choosing to let Him lead you is the key.  Then, wherever you may go on Sunday Christ is with you and in that place.

Of course a Spirit lead church leadership is critical, especially in these times.   A solid
