DAILY MEDITATION

Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet

DAILY MEDITATION

Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. Jeremiah 17:5-7 Transformational Leadership requires confidence in where you are leading, the what should be for your life. The tensions of where you are will not disappear because you have the opportunity for life and life more abundantly. You must choose life and in choosing life the context of your present reality will

DAILY MEDITATION

Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon. Isaiah 36:6 As Transformational Leader one must accept the fact that there will be attempts to bind you and the vision of what should be. The binding of the vision for your life will come from many ways because the new you and space challenges the existing you and space. Transformation changes what is to what should be and will suffer from the resistance of comfort and convenience! You must be willing to build through what is to the well-lived and joy filed life promised. The enemies of you becoming, internally and externally, will be powerful agents attempting to confine you at every t

DAILY MEDITATION

And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the Lord God of Israel. For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month. For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem. Isaiah 30:1-3 Transformational Leadership demands a grounding that keeps one focused and in line with what should be for your life. The transformation process comes with hurdles and struggles agai

DAILY MEDITATION

With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. II Chronicles 32:8 Trusting in what should be because God, Creator of all things, has promised, will free you from the frustration of the how. The how of accomplishing what is promised is perhaps the greatest fear and stumbling block for one to move forward in your well-lived and joy filled life. Do not allow what you do not know how is going to happen to keep you stuck on the corner, get into the traffic of life and trust God, the Creator of all things. Transformational Leadership takes courage to flow in the traffic

DAILY MEDITATION

Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord! Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity. Isaiah 31:1-2 Having faith, trusting in what should be is a foundational block for building out your well-lived and joy filled life. The what should be for your life demands you taking the reins of your life with the confidence that it will come to pass, by definition it is your acting and beli

DAILY MEDITATION

Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:6-7 The power of transformation sweeps our entire space and thus causes tensions even where we do not expect. The unexpected tensions of our lives can be the most difficult to manage because we are not aware and are caught off guard, however, God is faithful for you have been chosen for your journey. Remember that what is unexpected in your life is not a surprise to God. When you were shaped and formed in your mother’s womb God had already ordained you, appointe

DAILY MEDITATION

When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. Deuteronomy 20:1-4 Transformation for our life and life more abundantly

DAILY MEDITATION

And the children of Joseph spake unto Joshua, saying, Why hast thou given me but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I am a great people, forasmuch as the Lord hath blessed me hitherto? And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee. And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, both they who are of Bethshean and her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel. And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim

DAILY MEDITATION

And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. Acts 5:38-39 The challenge to our call to Transformational Leadership is to endure through the difficulties and the tensions of change that will exist. The tensions of leading change in our lives and space will come with attacks, rightful and wrongful attacks that will cut at the heart of advancing, the building out of our well-lived and joy filled life. How we go through is as important as the promises for our lives. We must always remember that the gift, the p

DAILY MEDITATION

Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted

DAILY MEDITATION

And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch. And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) Acts 5:12-14 Our intentionality toward the promises of God for our lives is supported by the development and operation of an adequate and strong infrastructure. The promise of the life and life more abundantly is assured but can and will be under attack and to weather the attack to our intentional move toward our promises is to put in place necessary infrastructure. The infrastructure we b

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord

DAILY MEDITATION

And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Proc

DAILY MEDITATION

Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher. And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already. And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation. And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier

DAILY MEDITATION

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evilmen and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. II Timothy 3:12-17 The process of our building out o

DAILY MEDITATION

That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. I Thessalonians 3:3 The process of building out your well-lived and joy filled life will have obstacles and difficulties; there will be rains, floods, and winds but despite and in spite of it all you have been appointed to overcome and inherit the promises of God. The diligence required for possessing your promises is rewarded with the evolving of your space to that which is prepared and sustained for you to possess your promises. Transformation happens as a result of the diligent actions on your part to co-create with God the space of life and life more abundantly promised. As the leader

DAILY MEDITATION

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8:6-8 The challenge to build your Spirit being cannot be overstated, for it is the Spirit that transcends the vicissitudes of life and keep you connect to the promisor as well as your promise. God has promised and provided a security deposit through the sacrifice of Christ that all has been paid for and you just have to go and possess that which is yours. To support and sustain your possession of the promises of God for your life the Spiri

DAILY MEDITATION

And David said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah, that ye should this day be adversaries unto me? shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? for do not I know that I am this day king over Israel? II Samuel 19:22 The choices of our lives can make or break our advancement to the promise of life and life more abundantly. Building out a well-lived and joy filled life demands we make choices and sometimes we get it right and sometimes wrong. The choices we make have consequences and whatever they are we must live with them. Because there are consequences to choices we must be assured that the decisions, choices we make are building blocks to the well-lived and joy fill

DAILY MEDITATION

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. Luke 24:6-7 No matter what it looks like in your life and experiences, God is there and He shows up just as He promised. You may experience Calvary, death, hell, and the grave but God is faithful to raise you up to what He has declared, promised for your life. Our responsibility is to stay in our lane, stay in the way, and stay on task and God’s promise is to appear and raise you to the fulfillment of His promise of life and life more abundantly right in the midst of your Calvary, deat
