DAILY MEDITATION

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Luke 1:32-33 God be great! Living in The Spirit permits us to not speak in progressive terms but instead speak declaring as is rooted in our faith. The development of your faith is paramount to walking into, possessing, and occupying the promises of God. Your faith drives your determination, endurance, and action. As we believe we declare so it is, not that it will be absent of the work and journey but despite and in spite of the work and journey, including adversi

DAILY MEDITATION

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:3-6 As you and I prepare for 2018 one of our first advancing actions must be release. Release that which was so that we can make room for that which shall be and what shall become. Holding on to th

DAILY MEDITATION

Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. Acts 13:38-39 Living in The Spirit releases us, from us - our guilt and shame. The fact that we are actually human is important because it reveals that we are subject to mistakes, failure, both intentionally and unintentionally. Our failings, falling short of the mark set for us by God and ourselves, is the opportunity for the spirit of darkness to consume our life with the intent to paralyze and/or force us to give in and up. Do not make the mistake of beco

DAILY MEDITATION

Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus: Acts 13:23 All things are possible with God! The very story, journey of Jesus in the flesh reveals that even me, you and I, can be raised from the dead of our situations and even our selves to the life and life more abundantly promised. The importance of the coming of Jesus, this advent season, is God’s signal to humankind that He can and will work through and in all things, even in the flesh. Further Jesus reveals that we too have a Divine nature manifested in The Spirit activate in our lives and the more we are consumed by it, it counters the flesh so that we receive power to possess the life and l

DAILY MEDITATION

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. Acts 5:30-32 We have been delivered, saved from any and all things that would prevent our living in the life and life more abundantly promised by God. Because God has declared our abundance, be aware forces of darkness and evil are at work to distract, hinder, and destroy our faith in God and what He has declared should be. Jesus came so that we would access to a restored, r

DAILY MEDITATION

Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:10-12 Living in The Spirit provides you and I the ability to see our promise above our reality. The reality of your life may make you hopeless for the fulfillment of God’s promise in your life but do not be dismayed see in The Spirit. Seeing in The Spirit

CHRISTMAS 2017 MESSAGE

As you celebrate this Christmas please remember why there is a Christmas. Christmas is rooted in what we call the Advent season, the coming of Christ, the promise, the Anointed One. Christ came that we would be saved, delivered from the life we know to the life that should be as promised by God, life and life more abundantly! Jesus, which means He saves, appropriately translated He delivers has come that you and I, our community, the world would be delivered from the status quo to the abundant life God declared, prepared, and freely gives. Do not be deceived by what is or even the limitations of what you can see or conceive right now, Jesus has come to deliver us from what is to what shou

DAILY MEDITATION

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35 Christmas can be a wonderful season of celebration, however, it depends upon how one approaches it for maximum return. If you approach it from the commercial angle and you have money or credit it can be off the chain, however, if you do not it can be miserable and frustrating. If you approach it from a season of joy and fellowship, there is always a party, dinner, gathering for one to have a great time, however, if you are yet grieving for family, friends who ar

DAILY MEDITATION

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was s

DAILY MEDITATION

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21 The vicissitudes of life can deal a death blow in which we believe and it appears that all is lost and there is no coming back from the hell we find ourselves in, do not give in it is only a deception. The greatest weapon of evil that comes against us is in our feeling defeated in our minds and spirit and the only protection we have is to Live in The Spiri

DAILY MEDITATION

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10:10-11 Without question life is filled with difficulties and adversities that seem to come out of nowhere but be confident that Christ has come to give us life and life more abundantly in the midst of them all. Living in The Spirit reassures and motivates us to continue to press forward despite the stuff of life that seeks to destroy and steal our joy. We live in a time in which we are experiencing the darkness sand ugliness of humanity and whether we admit it or

DAILY MEDITATION

And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they sha

DAILY MEDITATION

Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it. And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. And the tre

DAILY MEDITATION

They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them. Isaiah 49:10 The full protection of God is found as we Live in The Spirit. The Spirit has come that we can be secure in the path of life that God has ordained. Life and even the path of God does come with some twists and turns but we have full coverage as a result of The Spirit operating in our lives and we operating in The Spirit. The Spirit is security for us to go through in order to get to. Do not neglect the power of The Spirit in and over your life for The Spirit will enable and encase you so that you overcome

DAILY MEDITATION

Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion. Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the en

DAILY MEDITATION

O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Isaiah 40:9-11 Living in The Spirit provides us nourishment through the journey to our promise as well as energy for occupying that which God has ordained for our lives. Life and it

DAILY MEDITATION

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14 Living in The Spirit exposes us to God’s power and love through our everyday experiences that makes us His witnesses. Often in life, left to our own means, we will chose pathways that are easy, quick, or appear to be the way and often find our chosen way leads to paths of destruction. However, as we yield to the leading and guiding of The Spirit in our lives we are lead, although it appears narrowly, tight, it is right to the h

DAILY MEDITATION

But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah. Psalm 49:15 God indeed saves and saves us from all things. It is God’s desire that we would be saved, delivered from any and all things that would prevent our enjoyment of life and life more abundantly. Living in The Spirit is God’s challenge to us to receive everything He has declared, nurtured, and prepared for us. God delights in being our Savior, revealing His power and love to and for us through His Spirit. Therefore, Let’s Go In with God, Living in The Spirit, knowing that He delights in our deliverance, the revelation of His glory that we witness and thus become His witnesses.

DAILY MEDITATION

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:10-11 With God we need not worry that the difficulties of life will overcome or destroy us as we move forward in the higher calling He has declared for our lives. It is up to you and me to be determined as we Live in The Spirit that whatever we face or engage we will be victorious. Further, as we Live in The Spirit we also have understanding that whatever is before us is part of God’s prepared way for our lives and is the necessary process, journey to our acces

DAILY MEDITATION

Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry? Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still. Psalm 76:7-8 The Lord our God is in charge of all things, in heaven and earth, and all are subject to Him. As we are one with God, Living in The Spirit, we have the right to walk in the very fullness of who God is. Thus, as we engage life and its circumstances we do so with God and the fullness of His power. Everything, no matter what, stands pale in comparison to God and all things are subject to Him and His will. Do not fear and do not be afraid, Let’s Go In with God bringing all things into submission, obedienc
