Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream”

Today in the United States of America we commemorate the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Dr. King was first and foremost a Christian and a Pastor.  During his journey of impact on our Nation he took a non-violence stance.  Sadly, many like to represent him as a proponent of violence and a welfare system that holds people captive for generations.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

He was for equal work for equal pay for all.  He stood for bringing folks together not dividing this great Nation.  His “I have a Dream” speech has

‘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 Outcome is Priceless!

Faith is knowing without doubt that God can do what He says He can.  Trust is required.  The outcome is priceless!

For it is written:

“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.  Has He said, and will He not do?  Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”

Numbers 23:19

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all (emphasis added) your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

“But without faith it is

Daily Inspiration-Check the Atmosphere!

How is 2018 treating you so far?  There are already tremendous shifts taking place in the atmosphere.  Doors are opening suddenly as other doors close on issues and circumstances that no longer serve a purpose.

Let those doors close and do not look back.  When God opens a new door, walk through it with grace and anticipation.  Know that His very best for you awaits you.  God knows exactly when and how to open new vistas for you.  Let Him.  Release your hold on things to Him.  Let Him move you forward this year in His perfect will and perfect

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

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

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
