DAILY MEDITATION

“The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn’t live in custom-made shrines or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn’t take care of himself. He makes the creatures; the creatures don’t make him. Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near. We live and move in him, can’t get away from him! One of your poets said it well: ‘We’re the God-created.’ Well, if we are the God-created, it doesn’t make a lot

DAILY MEDITATION

It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. I Corinthians 15:44-49 When we Live By The Spirit, the weaknesses and failin

DAILY MEDITATION

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1 Life and life’s challenges have come to get us off focus, distracting and/or detouring us from that which God has promised for our life and life more abundantly. To avoid the distractions and detours that life and its challenges bring, we must Live By The Spirit. Live By The Spirit releases us from having to bear the burden and tasks of finding and maintaining the route to our path of life that God has designated for our well-lived and joy filled life. We can LIVE by releasing ourselves to the Spirit of God and be set free

DAILY MEDITATION

Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. Romans 6:18 When we Live By The Spirit we are servants, representatives of what is right and good. The choices that we make as a result of the Spirit leading and guiding us showcases that the right way, God’s way is the way and is both prosperous and successful. Life and life’s challenges often places us at the fork in the road where we must make a choice to stay there and die or move into the flow ofd the traffic of life. With the Spirit we have a an advantage to that which will lead and guide us to moved into life’s traffic and do so leading to our life and life more abundantly promised by God. The Spirit sets us f

DAILY MEDITATION

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36 Live By The Spirit and be free to God and His promises for your life. God has promised and sealed His promise with the offering of His Son on our behalf to give us freedom from any and all things. The freedom promised by God is conditioned only on us believing. Believe that God can raised you up, no matter your circumstances, to be victorious and yield the benefit of a well-lived and joy filled life. God sets us free to inherit all things, the creation He created for us to enjoy and reveal His glory, by releasing you in His Spirit to LIVE fully free, unconfined, and uninhibited.

DAILY MEDITATION

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. . . . If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16-18; 25 When we Live By the Spirit we are released form the confines of law and sin. The Spirit is a free, boundless, and unconstrained being that will not be bound or contained by anything or any one. If we decide that we will yield our lives, decisions, and actions to the leading and guiding of God’s Spiri

DAILY MEDITATION

But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about. But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s terms. It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are de

DAILY MEDITATION

The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death. God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that. The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accompli

DAILY MEDITATION

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1 When you Live By The Spirit, sin, separation from God, no longer is a death sentence but instead a building block to the well-lived and joy filled life promised by God. The joy of living under the power of the Spirit in our lives is that we are released from the guilt and shame of our past, present, and future as we walk after God and God uses those experiences as opportunities to strengthen and advance us. Pursuing God by way of yielding to His Spirit, leading and guiding us provides, us coverage and protection from any and all things that would separate

DAILY MEDITATION

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Hebrews 10:35-37 Live By The Spirit is a lifestyle that builds confidence within to engage lived experiences from the position of victor, inheritor of the promises of God for life and life more abundantly in and through all things. The Spirit leading and guiding through our lived experiences reveals God as well as the deposits, the gifts, power within us from God. As we go through our lived experiences we get to by knowing God and com

DAILY MEDITATION

And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. II Kings 19:35 Live By The Spirit and life and life’s challenges are subject to God and His intention for our lives. God has a way before, in, and after our experiences to work them for our good. It is through the Spirit of God, leading and guiding us, that we get in the way of God and get out of the way of His work. We LIVE and have our being, the very foundation of our becoming because we are willing to get in His way, co-create with God His promises for our lives

DAILY MEDITATION

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. Habakuk 2:3-4 What God has declared and promised for our lives is true and we must decide to LIVE in those promises and Live By The Spirit. The process of life is intended to get us to our expected end, the will and promises of God fulfilled in our lives, and to do so we will face challenges that are purposefully designed to prepare and equip us to be sustained in God’s promises and thrive. Even though darkness attempts to drive

DAILY MEDITATION

But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen. Hosea 1:7 Live By The Spirit for it is by the Spirit that we are equipped to overcome all things. The use of carnal, our flesh might and power is subordinate and no match for the power of God as revealed in His Spirit. LIVE through your journey of life and life’s challenges by the Spirit which transcends and overpowers everything that would come in opposition of the Word of the Lord, His promise of life and life more abundantly. Allow the Spirit of God to brood over your life and your challenges and it will accompl

DAILY MEDITATION

Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright. And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. Daniel 8:18-19 Life and life’s challenges can put us in a dark space in which we are frozen, paralyzed to the opportunities and possibilities available to us to LIVE. It is through the Spirit of God operating in us in which we become alive. Live By The Spirit so that when challenges confront you that you are empowered from within to cast away the chaos of life and illuminate the promises of God for your life. The message of God to us

DAILY MEDITATION

And the angel who was speaking with me came back and awakened me, like a man who is awakened out of his sleep. He said to me, “What do you see?” I said, “I see, and behold, a [a]lampstand all of gold, with its bowl [for oil] on the top of it and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it. And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side [supplying it continuously with oil].” So I asked the angel who was speaking with me, “What are these, my lord?” Then the angel who was speaking with me answered me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” Then he said to me, “

DAILY MEDITATION

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:37-38 Vision coupled with faith, believing, empowers you and I to LIVE in the fullness of God’s promise of life and life more abundantly. Life and life’s challenges can be overwhelming, making you think that there is no way out of your situation as well as the entirety of life, deceiving you that all before you is doomed to the status quo or worst nevertheless, believe, Live By The Spirit, it pleases God and evokes His powerful presence in and over life.

DAILY MEDITATION

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make

DAILY MEDITATION

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: II Peter 1:19 LIVE for you and I have a sure Word, a promise form God and God’s promises comes with a guide to assist us in navigating life and life’s challenges to Hiss intended purpose and plan. God has and will never leave us alone but instead ensures that if we would receive and embrace Him, we will have His Spirit to lead and guide us to our well-lived and joy filled life as promised. It is through the Spirit of God that God gives us carte blanch to access and overcome life in the fullness in order t

DAILY MEDITATION

I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. Numbers 24:17 When we Live By The Spirt, we are forever in a position of expectation, expecting God’s intervention into our lives. Living in a spirit of expectancy positions us to be sensitive to the move of God that cannot be predetermined by us or often make sense to us, however, when we Live By The Spirt we are more in tuned with God. Being in tuned with God is more than just the immediate but also with the route of His intended plan and purpose for our lives in order to r

DAILY MEDITATION

Tuesday, June 11, 2019 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:16-17 Live By The Spirt for it has been sent to you and I as a messenger of God to lead and guide us into His promises for our lives. The Spirit is God’s mechanism for connecting with us to lead and guide us through life and life’s challenges to the well-lived and joy filled life promised. It is up to you and I to bid the coming of God’
