DAILY MEDITATION

What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that. Galatians 2:19-20 (The Message) The year of 2018 is

And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof. And so it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they feared not the Lord: therefore the Lord sent lions among them, which slew some of them. Wherefore they spake to the king of Assyria, saying, The nations which thou hast removed, and placed in the cities of Samaria, know not the manner of the God of the land: therefore he hath sent lions among them, and, behold, they slay them, because they know not the manner of the God of th

DAILY MEDITATION

If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Philippians 3:11 Understanding your purpose is necessary for one to build out a well-lived and joy filled life - spaces and enjoy the fullness thereof. Building out your life and life more abundantly demands Transformed Spaces to accommodate that which you believe should be for your life. It is in your overall purpose, very living and being in your purpose that will drive your narrative toward embracing and receiving your promises. Life is hard and sends all kinds of things to deter, frustrate, and separate you and most of them, if not all, are very enticing, but you must do whatever is necessary to remain focused, overcomi

DAIKLY MEDITATION

The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:36-38 The power of our ability to go forward Transforming Spaces to accommodate the building out of our well-lived and joy filled life is because God is with us. God’s presence, living and dwelling with us, is no small thing but instead our power unto salvation, deliverance to our

DAILY MEDITATION

This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Acts 2:32-37 Transforming Spa

DAILY MEDITATION

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7 The peace of the Lord is found in the assurance and confidence in His promises for our lives. Peace is defined as harmony with the will of God, it is not the absence of conflict. Peace is saying that despite and

DAILY MEDITATION

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20 As we celebrate Christmas with our family and friends know that it is more than the fellowship of food, drink, and presents but the opportunity to begin anew. Allow the festivities to Transform Spaces that positions you to see the new; allowing the old to pass away and embrace and receive the new. Looking back is a source of memories and strength but only as it positions and empowers you to move forward in your new, you

DAILY MEDITATION

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:3 Transforming Spaces changes every thing and how one sees and expects that which is and that which should become. When you and I can embrace and receive the new that is declared by God for our lives, despite and in spite of what is, that we are blessed then our spaces look different and our expectations are transformed to that which God has promised. Taking on an attitude of being blessed is an effective tool for seeing things new. To see in our Spirit that which is becoming, that which should be, changes our perception of our future, our expectations

DAILY MEDITATION

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good

DAILY MEDITATION

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger;

Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Isaiah 6:6-7 Transforming Spaces happens because we are willing to turn, repent from that which separates us from the promises of God for our lives and allowing the Spirit of God to take control of our lives releasing us from that which separates us from the life and life more abundantly promised. As you and I commit ourselves to be lead and guided by God to our well-lived and joy filled life we need not worry about the things of separation fo

DAILY MEDITATION

And the Lord said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments: Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel. I Kings 9:3-5 God challenges us not to perfection but to diligently seeking Him; prog

DAILY MEDITATION

Now, my God, let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open, and let thine ears be attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. Now therefore arise, O Lord God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness. II Chronicles 6:40-41 Worship is not simply an event but instead a lifestyle. A Worship lifestyle reflects is reflected in your everyday walking around experience by your acknowledgement that God is God, the Lord and Master over life and everything about life. Worship says that God is God despite and in spite of what is going on in your life or what appears to be powers working ag

DAILY MEDITATION

Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance. II Chronicles 6:27 Transforming Spaces is a direct result of repentance. Repentance is the turning from spaces that lead to destruction to spaces that supports and nurtures your living in your life and life more abundantly. To build out one’s well-lived and joy filled life it is not enough to conceive in your mind your promises but it must also transform your heart and thus your view of life and as a result begin the process of Transforming Spaces t

DAILY MEDITATION

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4:7-10 The indwelling of God and His Spirt inside of you is the agent of transformation within that affects and effects the Transforming Spaces that will support and nurture your well-lived and joy filled life. Life is hard but it does not have to drive you but instead as a result of the presence of God you have the

DAILY MEDITATION

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments; Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenante

DAILY MEDITATION

For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:10 Our focused view remains steadfast as we are developing and nurturing our relationship with the Promisor, God of our promises. The more we are in tune, relying and working in concert with the Promisor, God Himself the more we, our lens becomes fat for our view of the new, the promises of God for our life, squeezing out anything and everything that would prevent us from the well-lived and joy filled life promised. The more we see our new, under girded with our relationship with God, the more we are looking, expecting, sensitive to the opportunities to walk into the promises of God for our lives.

DAILY MEDITATION

But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband. Galatians 4: 26-27 Our focused view becomes the energy necessary to build our way through the experiences of life to a well-lived and joy filled life. What you see is going to influence your actions and although your promises from God may not be a reality in your here and now, you must stay focused on what you are becoming, your new heavens and earth. The fuel for any fulfillment in your life is your faith, your belief, the very substance of thing

DAILY MEDITATION

Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money. For thus saith the Lord God, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, sait

DAILY MEDITATION

But, according to his promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for these things, give diligence that ye may be found in peace, without spot and blameless in his sight. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also, according to the wisdom given to him, wrote unto you; II Peter 3:13-15 Being focused on the promises of God for our lives releases us from the old and the spaces of our old to embrace and receive the new, specifically the Transforming Spaces to accommodate our promise. Building out our well-lived and joy filled life demands our focused view on wha
