DAILY MEDITATION

You are a garden fountain, a well of flowing water streaming down from Lebanon. Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere. Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits. Song of Songs 4:15-16 (NIV) The New Year, 2020, is upon us and the challenge for you and I is to Catch The Wind of God’s His Spirit which leads and guides us to His purpose and plan for our lives. God created us to be His visible and living presence in the world. God made all creation as tools so that you and I are equipped to handle life and whatever it brings, giving Him glory, revelation. When God created you and I, He blew into us the brea

DAILY MEDITATION

The syllables of your name murmur like a meadow brook. No wonder everyone loves to say your name! Song of Songs 1:3 (The Message) All hail the power of Jesus name for in His name we have the power of God who declares salvation, deliverance to us all. It is the Word of God spoken that translates into the reality of God’s revelation in and through our lives. Life may go over all kind of terrain, flow as a brook over what appears to be the rocks and ruins of life but what will sustain and embolden life through them all is God’s Word. Jesus is the Word of God made flesh and a model for us to LIVE, all along our way developing the ability to Build Capacity for salvation, deliverance brought t

DAILY MEDITATION

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. II Corinthians 2:14 The year is almost over and a new one is budding and we can be grateful that what was did not destroy us but instead and ironically has caused us to Build Capacity to LIVE. The lessons learned over the past year are a direct result of life’s challenges and obstacles that did not or is not overwhelming us, we are still here instead God has used them, teaching and providing instruction so that we can LIVE through and in all things. It is up to you and I to take those lessons and use them to equip and embolden us to form

DAILY MEDITATION

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 3:16-17 God’s Word has been given so that you and I might be equipped unto the work of the life and life more abundantly that is ours in all things. God’s Word is Himself and as a result if we focus our attention, energy on the Word of life from God for our lives the more intimate and at one we are with God. God, in the fullness of who He is and power, is our vehicle to transport us through life, with its challenges and obstacles, to the promises of God, His Word.

DAILY MEDITATION

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. I John 3:1-3 Build Capacity in and through the circumstances of your life for you are the offspring of God. Being the offspring of God implies that we are birthed out of God, His Word and as a result cannot fail. There is absolutely nothing you can face in life that the Word of

DAILY MEDITATION

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfr

DAILY MEDITATION

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was s

DAILY MEDITATION

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:14-17 Build Capacity through your everyday experiences by giving way to the Spirit. The Spirit of God is made available to us to navigate life with its challenges and obstacles to LIVE fully in the promises of God for our life and life more abundantly.

DAILY MEDITATION

For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Isaiah 56:4-5 Our faithfulness to God, His Word for our life, establishes our identity with what God has declared should be. As we identify with our promise it becomes and is who we are and thus we operate in life as if it is. The more we operate in who we are, as declared by God, we exercise our faith and embody who we are and extract in and through our circumstances the life and

DAILY MEDITATION

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him

DAILY MEDITATION

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. James 1:2-6 Count it all joy as you face the challenges and obstacles of your life for with them comes the ability to Build Capacity in order to LIVE in the fullness of God’s promises for your life. Life’s challenges and obst

DAILY MEDITATION

Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all. Philippians 2:16-17 Our Word of life is our promise from God for life and life more abundantly in and through all things. Embrace God’s promise for your life and forge ahead through life’s challenges and obstacles. Tightly grip your Word of life for you, it serves as an incentive to see life’s challenges and obstacles as interrupters to hinder and prevent you from living in the fullness of God’s promises. LIVE through ti all and as you do, declaring and taking

DAILY MEDITATION

And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. Acts 5:41-42 Life will present challenges and obstacles, some of our own making and/or others simply coming to buffet, to separate us from God and His promises, however we must choose to LIVE in and through them all. Choosing to LIVE admits life’s challenges and obstacles requires us to work, press our way toward the promises of God for our life and as we do so we Build Capacity. Remember, life’s challenges and obstacles, wherever they originate, have not come to hurt or to ha

DAILY MEDITATION

For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. II Corinthians 13:4-6 The task to Build Capacity in order to LIVE in the fullness of God’s promise in and through our lives requires our willingness to do so. We are empowered to LIVE in the promises of God because we declare to do so, believe and take action on that belief. Declaring is more than just words b

DAILY MEDITATION

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Romans 5:3-5 Life’s challenges and obstacles are purposely designed to Build Capacity in us to overcome and inherit all things. The more we thirst for that which should be as declared by God, the more determined we are to achieve it. It is in the press that we develop our muscles and build out the necessary wherewithal to achieve what must be for our life as promised by God. Each and every challenge and obstacles is a test of

DAILY MEDITATION

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. II Corinthians 12:9-10 Build Capacity by strengthening your faith, belief and actions, and yourself to LIVE in the will of God for you life. The will of God for your life is for you to reach and LIVE in the fullness of your potential, as declared by Him, to experience and enjoy life and life more abundantly in all things. We need no

DAILY MEDITATION

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:12-13 The journey of life with its challenges can sometimes be overwhelming and you reach points of plateaus in which you just want to drift. Drifting implies not doing anything and just settling for what is, releasing your sail that catches the wind in order to move forward. It is in these moments of life’s journey, despite and in spite of the challenges of life, in which you must hoist your sail to Catch The Wind. To LIVE is about getting the best

DAILY MEDITATION

For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. Psalm 86:10-11 The source of our strength and power to Build Capacity is God and God alone. God’s power to decide and control our destiny is the key component to overcoming the obstacles and challenges of life to LIVE in the fullness of God’s promise of life and life more abundantly in all things. Rely on God, trusting Him and leaning not to our own understanding, sensitive to and following His direction, and we shall inherit all things as ordained by God for our lives. It is God who holds our future and the more we are intimate and close

DAILY MEDITATION

Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Psalm 25:4-5 What should be for our lives is a stretch from where we are but a doable achievement, if we are willing to lean not to our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge God and He will direct our path. Stretch implies pressing toward, and in so doing, we Build Capacity to handle more and/or achieve more than what we are presently capable of. LIVE fully in your promises by stretching toward what should be for your life, releasing your full potential as designed by God for your life and life more abundantly. To stretch requi

DAILY MEDITATION

Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Psalm 143:10 Seeking God’s direction to LIVE is the best choice we can make in life. It does not mean that our decision to choose God’s way and LIVE is without challenges, however, the challenges Build Capacity for us to LIVE in that which He has prepared for our life and life more abundantly. Remember there is a war going one in the Spirit realm that seeks to separate us from God and thus His purpose and plan for our lives. The war that exists is supernatural and requires a supernatural response and we are enabled to respond with the supernatural strength and power of God. We have no
