DAILY MEDITATION

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. I Corinthians 12:7 God’s invitation to you and I to Co-Create with Him that which He has promised for our lives is the opportunity for us as well as the space in which we exist to profit. God in inviting us to join Him in what He is up to intends to transform us as well as our space for the good. The challenge is for you and I to understand that whatever is going on in our lives that it is God’s opportunity to bless us as well as everything around us. What may look difficult, bad, and/or hopeless is the opportunity to advance God and His promise in and for our lives. As we seek to Co-Create with God, we set in

DAILY MEDITATION

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: II Corinthians 9:8 God’s invitation to you and I to Co-Create that which should be for our lives, life and life more abudnnalty, will not be because you and I do everything right or get everything right, intentionally or unintentionally, instead because of God’s grace on our lives. God’s grace, favor given to us because we willing accept His invitation is our “get-out-of-jail” card, makes up for our failings and missteps. It is only because of God’s grace that we yet have the opportunity to experience and live in God’s promise for our lives. Never belie

DAILY MEDITATION

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1 Inclusive of God’s invitation for us to Co-Create our life and life more abundantly is the fullness of God’s power revealed in and through our lives. God, who is our Shepherd, provides us everything we need and goes and has gone as far as being before us before we ever get to the situations of our lives. Because of God’s nature as a Shepherd, while we are sleeping or otherwise occupied He has already gone before us and worked out every detail to our benefit. We need not worry or be frustrated by the how or the if, it has all been worked out for our good. Our challenge is to go ahead and Occupy Our Promise and with doing so God will lea

DAILY MEDITATION

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 Inclusive of our invitation to Co-Create what should be as promised by God for our lives is the provision of what is necessary for us to overcome and inherit all things that bring life and life more abundantly. We need not worry or be afraid that we will not be able to face and conquer whatever is before us for we have been equipped to do so and be victorious in our actions. The victory we have and will possess is complete in order to serve God’s purpose for our lives. God promises and has done whatever is necessary for us to build out our well-lived and joy filled life, giving Him glo

DAILY MEDITATION

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. Matthew 6:34 (The Message) The how of our situation often places us in positions in which we are stuck and afraid to move forward in the promise of life and life more abundantly. The abundance of life God promises is bigger than what we can ask or imagine and thus is far beyond what we can see and or able to do, that is fact but we do not move and flow under our own steam but as Co-Creators with God. Our Co-Creator status with God gives us access to the fullness of God that gives us access

DAILY MEDITATION

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 As Co-Creators with God we have absolutely nothing to fear for God is our light. As we walk with God and in collaboration with what God is up to, His light shines brightly in and through us scattering darkness. We are better able to engage the circumstances of our lives as Co-Creators with God turning what is dark into light; working all things for the good toward our well-lived and joy filled life. Do not be afraid of what is before you or confused and frustrated about the how you will overcome, God who is light will shine your way to His ordered steps to fu

DAILY MEDITATION

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. Luke 11:1-3 Our Co-Creator status with God requires us to be in constant and continuous conversation with God. God has a keen sense of humor in which He only let’s us know information on a need to know basis. Since God is the Creator and the focus of our lives, our Co-Creator status with Him requires that we seek Him each and

DAILY MEDITATION

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 3:20-22 God’s invitation to you and I to Co-Create with Him the promise of life and life more abundantly is not dependent on your works but instead on His purpose. God’s purpose in life is for His entire creation to reveal His power and love. Thus, God is at your door, not because of how good you are but instead because He desi

DAILY MEDITATION

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. I Corinthians 15:58 Accepting God’s invitation to Co-Create our life with Him develops and expands our work to build a well-lived and joy filled life that profits not just us but also the world in which we exist. God’s promise of life and life more abundantly is both personal and communal. Thus, as we believe and take action on our belief of what should be in our world, our actions are not in vain. Often our minds, as a result of the difficulties of our life and the smallness of what we can and do contribute, appears hopele

DAILY MEDITATION

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9 It is easy for us to get weary along the journey of building out our well-lived and joy filled life because we see our efforts as meager and small in comparison to the task before us but remember you are not in this alone. God’s invitation for you and I to Co-Create with Him the life and life more abundantly promised is an assurance that we will be victorious because God is for us if we are willing to take the necessary action and move forward. The troubles of our lives loom large but they are small, a light thing in comparison to the power of God for which we have access as Co-Creators w

DAILY MEDITATION

Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. Ephesians 6:6-8 God’s invitation to Co-Create with Him the life and life more abundantly must transcend our fleshy desires to please men and the world. The challenge to build out a well-lived and joy filled life cannot not be hampered by our fleshy desire to please men and be accepted. If we choose to allow our narrative to be defined by people, places, and things, they drive and thus we go along for the ride a

DAILY MEDITATION

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24 God’s invitation to you and I to Co-Create with Him the fulfillment of His purpose for our lives and the world He has created is the opportunity for your brilliance to come forth. Brilliance is indicative of a bright illumination. Your invitation from God invites you to shine, stretch forth from your situations and circumstances and bring about the illumination of the power within and the God who gives you the power. The circumstances of your life acts as drawers of the life-giving water to flow fr

DAILY MEDITATION

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11 Never doubt that whatever you face God has a plan. God’s purpose may not always be clear or evident in the outset, but be assured it serves as an invitation to you to your greatness and your life and life more abundantly. The pressures of your life is your vehicle of discovering and walking in the power of God within you and creating a space that allows for God to be glorified and you lifted to your place of life and life more abundantly. God is no cruel father who would set you up for failure but is well aware of your abilities and possibilities

DAILY MEDITATION

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. Jeremiah 29:4-7 The situation before you is God’s invitation for you to walk worthy in the oppo

DAILY MEDITATION

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. II Corinthians 7:1 The result of God’s invitation to share with Him in fulfilling His purpose for His world; His creation is for you to live in His original intent of life and life more abundantly as promised by God to and for us. You and I have been chosen to manifest the glory and power of God over life and everything in it. Go ahead and Occupy Your Promiseyou are not alone, you are equipped with the promise of God’s full presence, including His power and love, to be more than a conqueror in all things. Walk in your status as Co-C

DAILY MEDITATION

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. I Peter 2:9-10 You have been chosen to Co-Createwith God that which He has ordained for your life and which fulfills His purpose. Your life and life more abundantly is a gift from God and He chose you, everything about you, the good and the bad, to be a part of the mix, journey of going forth to proclaim His will in and for your life. Do not be deterred because of what app

DAILY MEDITATION

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, II Timothy 1:9 God’s invitation to be Co-Creators with Him is a holy calling that is based not on our works but instead on God’s purpose. God invites you and I to participate with Him in His purpose, not yours. With God’s invitation is the reward of life and life more abundantly to and for you based on your willingness to serve Him as His witness of His fullness of power over life. God chose you and I for the journey that is ours and no matter what that journey may bring you are more than a conqueror with H

DAILY MEDITATION

Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. II Thessalonians 2:14-17 God’s invitation for you and I to Co-Createwith Him the promises for our lives is our calling to represent and serve Him in the midst of our life, circumstances. Serving God is a privilege that brings about reward of that which God has ordain

DAILY MEDITATION

That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. I Thessalonians 2:12 In walking in God’s invitation to Co-Create with Him the life and life more abundantly promised it takes a commitment on our part to walk worthy. The Apostle Paul admonishes each of us as believers; those who seek to fulfill, build out a well-lived and joy filled life promised by God for all, to put forth our best efforts in actions and integrity. Putting forth our best actions and integrity responds appropriately to God’s invitation and call, not because of how good we are but instead how faithful we are to believe God and to represent Him well. Doing what we do, we are called to do so

DAILY MEDITATION

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3 We have everything we need to accomplish that which God has ordained and promised for our lives. God invites us into a Co-Creator relationship with us having provided everything we need, simply because of our willingness to accept His invitation and to walk with Him. Accepting God’s invitation and walking with Him increases our ability to know God. Knowing God is more than just knowing about Him but taking up His likeness in Spirit as well as first hand experience with Him and His Word manifested in your life. As we accept God’s invitation to Co-Create we have a front ro
