What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 Taking Possession of your promise is easily said than done, however, it is easily done by just making up in your mind that what is, is not what should be and I am determined to have what should be for my life. Does this mean, you just declaring and/or thinking what should be that somehow miraculously you are transformed from what is to what should be, no. What a reframed mindset does is position you and your thinking toward the process of building out of what is that, which should be. The process will by no means be easy or without adversity, you are transforming your space and context to somethin

DAILY MEDITATION

He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. Psalm 22:8 Take Possession of your promise trusting God and in so doing God will do just what He said. It pleases God that we would exercise our faith in Him and His Word. As you and I decide to go to, pursue God and His Word that He will reward us. It is in pursuing your promise that you engage the process of fully embracing and living in God’s promise for your life, Occupying Your Promise. As we engage the process of Occupying Our Promise we declare that it is done and as we believe so it will be. Do not be afraid or fearful of what is that stands in the way of your life and life more a

DAILY MEDITATION

He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me. II Samuel 22:20 Taking Possession of your promise positions you so that God can take you into a large place. The large place is the abundance God intends for our lives. As you Take Possession of what God has promised you, it signals that you believe what should be as declared by God and thus are willing to move and flow in the direction, steps ordered by Him. The reward of our abundance is not because of how good and perfect we are but how faithful we are to what God has declared for our lives. God already knew and knows that you will make some missteps and mistakes in your life but because of His l

DAILY MEDITATION

The whole community was in an uproar, wailing all night long. All the People of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The entire community was in on it: “Why didn’t we die in Egypt? Or in this wilderness? Why has God brought us to this country to kill us? Our wives and children are about to become plunder. Why don’t we just head back to Egypt? And right now!” Soon they were all saying it to one another: “Let’s pick a new leader; let’s head back to Egypt.” Moses and Aaron fell on their faces in front of the entire community, gathered in emergency session. Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, members of the scouting party, ripped their clothes and addressed the assembled People

DAILY MEDITATION

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Deuteronomy 30:19 Experiences are building blocks into our promised life and life more abundantly. The experiences of your life may appear disconnected and disjointed, however, they are opportunities, the good and the bad, of doorways to possibilities. As we view our experiences through a lens of opportunity we can draw from them faith, direction, and strength. What we have been through and yet we have survived, albeit bruised, we can declare we made it. What we did not believe possible in the midst of the ex

DAILY MEDITATION

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Hebrews 13:6 Taking Possession of God’s promises for your life can be very intimidating as they challenge you and your space to live up to the promises. It is easy to desire the promises for our lives and want them to come to you and to fit into where you and your present context but God’s promises have come to raise you to everything God intends for your life. The challenges of your promises are God’s vehicles to mature you to the full stature of Christ, the original intent of God’s creation for humankind. The challenge of becoming what God intends is attacked in our minds, fearing that we ca

DAILY MEDITATION

Now, my son, the Lord be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the Lord thy God, as he hath said of thee. I Chronicles 22:11 You and I have permission from God who is the Creator of all things to go forward and do what He has declared, promised for our lives. God’s permission is our access pass and ace in the hole for everything that would come before us as we press forward in His calling, promise for our lives. Whatever exists before us, large or small, strong or weak has no power to subdue us or prevent us from living life and life more abundantly. Go ahead and Take Possession of your promise! You may not understand how it will be achieved and very frustrated and torn abo

DAILY MEDITATION

I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. Ezekiel 34:14 As you Take Possession of your promise and move toward fully embracing and living in your promises, Occupying Your Promise, God provides. God’s provision is not limited but instead boundless in abundance as well as diverse. Whatever you need, when you need it God provides. Go forward in your promise and fully embrace and live in it, God has your back and assures that you have the necessary provision for your life and life more abundantly. God is our Shepherd and will lead us to

DAILY MEDITATION

And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. Exodus 3:8 God has declared for your life His promise of life and life more abundantly and will come into whatever situations you are in and deliver you into that promise. It does not matter what presently exist in your space or what can or will come to your space to prevent you from living in God’s promise, His very presence will rearrange everything and every one to accommodate His will.

They presented themselves before Moses and Aaron and the whole congregation of the People of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran at Kadesh. They reported to the whole congregation and showed them the fruit of the land. Then they told the story of their trip: “We went to the land to which you sent us and, oh! It does flow with milk and honey! Just look at this fruit! The only thing is that the people who live there are fierce, their cities are huge and well fortified. Worse yet, we saw descendants of the giant Anak. Amalekites are spread out in the Negev; Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites hold the hill country; and the Canaanites are established on the Mediterranean Sea and along the Jordan.”

DAILY MEDITATION

When Moses sent them off to scout out Canaan, he said, “Go up through the Negev and then into the hill country. Look the land over, see what it is like. Assess the people: Are they strong or weak? Are there few or many? Observe the land: Is it pleasant or harsh? Describe the towns where they live: Are they open camps or fortified with walls? And the soil: Is it fertile or barren? Are there forests? And try to bring back a sample of the produce that grows there—this is the season for the first ripe grapes.” With that they were on their way. They scouted out the land from the Wilderness of Zin as far as Rehob toward Lebo Hamath. Their route went through the Negev Desert to the town of Hebron.

DAILY MEDITATION

For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. Romans 11:34-36 God, the Creator of all things, has a specific purpose and plan for each and everyone and everything. God knew and knows exactly that which He has designed and it is through His wisdom that we seek insight into the things of our life, good and bad. There is absolutely nothing in our space in which God has not already conceived and provided a way for you and me to live life and life more abundantly. Therefore, the responsibility is ours t

DAILY MEDITATION

But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Isaiah 64:8 God challenges and invites you and I in to a collaborative co-creator status with Him to accomplish His will for our lives. God is the potter we are the clay and as God works with us and we with Him we are able to create in our present reality His promise of life and life more abundantly. Releasing ourselves to the leading and guiding of God’s Spirit, God who knew and knows our every step before we even make it, positions us to overcome obstacles, adversity for the good and our move forward in His ordained will, promise for our lives. As we take responsibility and a

DAILY MEDIATION

Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Romans 9:20-23 The One who created everyone and everything is God and this mindset must be prominent if you wish to live in your life and life more abundantly. Reframe your mindset tha

DAILY MEDITATION

Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth? Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me. I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded. I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and

DAILY MEDITATION

I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is n

DAILY MEDITATION

Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me. Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles. Acts 26:1

DAILY MEDITATION

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:14-16 We need not worry or be frustrated with the journey of our life and life more abundantly God is our friend. Because you decide that you are going to Take Possession of the promises of God for your life, you are following the l

DAILY MEDITATION

Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. Jonah 1:1-4 Failing to embrace God’s promises for your life will create chaos and confusion in and around your life. We are often questioning why thi

And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. Acts 9:5-6 The experiences of our lives are indicators, button pushers to wake us to the promise of God for our lives and invite us to seize, Take Possession of those promises. The difficulties and adversity in and around your life begs your attention that you would call on the Lord. Remember whatever is going on in your life, God did not allow it to come to hurt or harm you but instea
