DAILY MEDITATION

For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. Hebrews 10:37-39 God has promised you and I life and life more abundantly, not just in the hereafter but very much so in our here and now and it is up to us to possess it. It is through our Power Of Self-Determination in which we forge ahead with our Word of life, our promise and as we continually move forward God sends His Spirit, His wind to carry us through. Do not turn back or get weary in your drive toward y

DAILY MEDITATION

And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights: . . . The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night? The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will enquire, enquire ye: return, come. Isaiah 21:8, 11-12 In pursuit of God’s purpose and plan requires one to be determined to get through in order to get to. Life and its journey will provide challenges and obstacles designed to distract and detour you from the path of life God promised and as a result we must continuously be watchful. The Power Of Self Determination is a direct result

DAILY MEDITATION

I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 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. Habakkuk 2:1-3 In order to see our way for exercising our Power Of Self-Determination, one must watch, be looking for that which is one’s purpose and plan in and through life and each of our situations. God has not just created us to be, but to be living souls, h

DAILY MEDITATION

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. Psalm 62:1-2 Knowing and possessing the promises of God for your life equips you to handle the vicissitudes of life and be delivered, arrive at your life and life more abundantly. A purpose-driven life helps one to navigate life, including its challenges and obstacles, charting a path to the promises of God for your life. God has ensured that the navigation of life is a direct result of us embracing and possessing Him, His Spirit as the leader and guider for our lives and as HIs Spirit prevails, we Catch The Wind of God’s purpose and plan to liv

DAILY MEDITATION

I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: Psalm 116:9-10 Life is not easy and neither is the drive to your promise of life and life more abundantly. You and I must be determined, exercise the Power Of Self-Determination by forging our way, making our way through life’s challenges and obstacles to that which should be, the life and life more abundantly promised by God. What you believe God has promised, God’s Word to you is your motivation, put it to work in driving you and your actions through life to His promises. God does nothing by happenstance or accident, it is all Divinely ordered. If God spoke it to you, He

DAILY MEDITATION

In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? Psalm 56:10-13 The Power Of Self-Determination forges the way through life and its obstacles to the place and position of what should be. One’s self-determination drives the narrative of how you engage life and its challenges, driving them to the place of what you believe should be. It is your faith in God that will provide you the necessary fuel, t

DAILY MEDITATION

I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:13-14 The Power Of Self-Determination is the belief within us that what should be, should be, and it acts as motivation for action to make real that which should be for our living the life and life more abundantly promised, but they are not the last word. The Word of life, God’s promises, His purpose and plan, that which should be is the last word, the prevailing factor and as you believe and act on that you will overcome and inherit all things. Don’t get weary in well-doing but instead

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 Life’s challenges and obstacles are necessary to spur our Power Of Self-Determination. It is through the difficulties of our lives in which we come faced-to-face with what we believe should be for our lives. The what should be for our lives drives the outcome of our circumstances and our lives by our determination to not let whatever the “it” is that would stop us by not just thinking it should be but actually putting action to our determination. God has provided His Spirit and challenges us in our circumstances to act and as we do, His Spirit wi

DAILY MEDITATION

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:10-11 In addition to our redemption by Christ’s sacrifice and shedding of blood, we are empowered from within due to our determination to get through life’s obstacles and challenges as a result of the power, purpose, and plan of God. God has intentionally come to our lives through the indwelling of His Spirit to make us

DAILY MEDITATION

He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me. Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up. Isaiah 50:8-9 Exercising the Power Of Self-Determination, living and acting in the purpose of God for your life, is secure because of our umbrella insurance policy from God, covering us no matter what, including where we fall short. God has promised that if we would go on His behalf, He will be will not forsake or leave us, even to the end of time. God’s presence abiding with us, as we live and act in His purpose and plan, prov

DAILY MEDITATION

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6 Our Power Of Self-Determination fueled by our connection, being plugged in and turned on to God, provides the strength necessary to forge our away through and ahead toward the promises of God for our life. Self-Determination is the driving factor for facing life’s challenges and obstacles without flinching, causing one to spring forth despite and in spite of their opposition. It is in our weakness that God’s strength is made perfect. God provides us the necessary where-with-all to accomplish what He has ordained for our lives and as a reservoir to our relationship with Him, power is accessible and m

DAILY MEDITATION

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? Psalm 118:6 The Power Of Self-Determination is driven by our connection, being plugged in and turned on to God, powering our relationship with God provides the necessary wind of His Spirit that positions us to Catch The Wind! The Wind of God’s Spirit blowing from Him and within us drives us to overcome and inherit all things. It is our being determined to live in the purpose and plan of God in which we put down roots, foundation to stand, no matter what. God, the author and finisher of our faith; the very belief in that should be as declared and prepared by God, is our strength and life-giving Spirit within that makes us de

DAILY MEDITATION

If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey. Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not. Numbers 14:8-9 The challenges and obstacles of our life are bread, food to us for in them, as we are plugged in and turn on the power of God, we are energized to our Power Of Self-Determination. Our Power Of Self-Determination, the internal confidence that what God spoke in our lives is true and thus we act on it, pleases God. Remember, for without faith, believing and acting on what God purp

DAILY MEDITATION

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in

DAILY MEDITATION

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. I Timothy 6:11-12 The Power Of Self-Determination is the driver toward that which aligns us with God’s purpose and plan for our lives. Be assured that life’s challenges and obstacles are designed to separate you from God, in particular His purpose and plan for your life, and can be difficult to resist because they are often alluring and desirous and sometimes ugly and/or bad, they are purposed to be compelling and/or overwhelmi

DAILY MEDITATION

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. I Peter 4:13 The Power Of Self-Determination, the internal determination to act and live in what should be for your life as declared by God, can be stymied because of life’s challenges and obstacles, however, be of good cheer, Christ has overcome the world. Christ’s voluntary sacrificing of Himself for the world has conquered whatever would serve as death, grave, and hell for your living in the promises of God, Christ took the sting of death and defeated it with the power of resurrection. It is the wind of God’s Spirit that produces resurrection

DAILY MEDITATION

But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: Hebrews 3:6-8 We have been chosen by God and as a result He offered His son, Jesus, as a sacrifice to ensure that we would have full access to Himself and HIs power. Thus, we have been purchased, redeemed by God to God’s intent for our lives and thus, we have a right to diligently pursue that which should be for our lives with the backing and power of God. Life, including its challenges and obs

DAILY MEDITATION

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13 The Power Of Self-Determination appears to be a self motivating factor, it is true, however, it is also the spirit of who you are, who you have been created to be which is the fuel for your self-determination. Confidence in yourself and the gifts you bring to the table are essential to you exercising the Power Of Self-Determination and that is achieved by you embracing and accepting the gift of God within. Paul says we have a treasure inside of us that is encased in a clay jar, flesh, therefore, it is that which is inside that is our greatest asset

DAILY MEDITATION

By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:2 The challenge of life is to reach our full potential as declared by God. It is not enough to just to declare to live as God intended, we must also meet that challenge with action, to exercise the Power Of Self-Determination. God has given us His grace, favor, to reach the full potential of life as He promised knowing that we can do it if we make up our mind and release ourselves to His will, Catch The Wind. Catch The Wind and be carried from where you are to where you should be as declared and promised by God. God got you, rejoice in the fact that it is God who is on

DAILY MEDITATION

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Luke 10:20 Have joy because you have been chosen by God for eternal life. Your joy of who you are and whose you are serves as energy to exercise your Power Of Self-Determination. God has chosen you, despite and in spite of your incapacities, in abilities, and faults to represent Him in the world. Because God chose you, He has equipped you so that you can navigate and conqueror life by living in the fullness of joy, possessing and enjoying your life and life more abundantly in and through all things. It is the joy of our life that we are aligned, at one
