DAILY MEDITATION

There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:24-25 Exercising our Power Of Giving positions us to become fat in God and the things of God. We can choose to be sparingly in our giving of what God has given unto us and deceive ourselves that we are protecting ourselves and our future or we can decide to pour out of that which God has poured into us as a return and investment to and for God in our present and live in the overflow. In sparingly giving we assume that we have what we have for our own benefit but that is

DAILY MEDITATION

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. Hebrews 11:4 Our Power Of Giving fueled by our willingness and cheerfulness to pour out to one another and to all of God’s creation is the platform in which we please God. It is God’s delight for us to come to Him and believe that He is and as a result He rewards us for diligently pursuing Him, His purpose and plan for our lives in general as well as in the specifics of our circumstances. What can we render unto God for all of His blessings, return to Him His glory, revelation by giving of our best to one

DAILY MEDITATION

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? a

DAILY MEDITATION

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. Corinthians 9:6-7 The measure of what we expect from God is measured by how much we give, pour out, it is our Power Of Giving. As is the case of pouring into something, the critical variable is how much room is there to receive, if you do not have room in your glass, it’s full, or partially full, it will limit the amount to be poured in or influence decision if more is even needed. Pour out so that you send the signal for more, pro

That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the Lord thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which the Lord thy God shall choose to place his name there. Deuteronomy 26:2 There is absolutely nothing about life and what we experience that is a surprise to God, if it was, He would not be God. Therefore, be assured that God has and is equipping you with everything needed to be an overcomer in order to inherit every one of His promises, leading and guiding you and your space to the life and life more abundantly prepared and ordained, that is His promise and who He is. What God gave and is giving

DAILY MEDITATION

The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk. Exodus 23:19 Bring all of you to God’s purpose and plan so that what should be for life will be. In you becoming all God intends creates a space and environment that pours out the blessings of God to your space as well as on you, including everyone and everything. God chose you to deposit, give unto you in order that you would give, pour out to one another and all His creation. In these times of COVID-19, the world needs the pouring out of your gift, God’s grace, favor on your life that they too will experience, be open to God’s grace in and over

DAILY MEDITATION

And when Hezekiah and the princes came and saw the heaps, they blessed the Lord, and his people Israel. Then Hezekiah questioned with the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps. And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store. II Chronicles 31:8-10 The Power Of Giving ensures a return that makes more than enough. To live in the overflow of life and all God has purposed and planned rests solely on one’s willingness to give. Give and it shall be given unto yo

DAILY MEDITATION

Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place. Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries. Nehemiah 13:11-12 We as disciples of Christ are compelled to return to God that which He has so graciously poured out to us, life and life more abundantly. How can we give God life, we do so by pouring His grace, favor; God’s presence, power, and promises revealed to the world, making Him and His Word flesh, real. It is in our giving we receive the Power Of Giving that returns to God and as a result of diligently pursuing Him, His purpose and plan, purpose-drive

DAILY MEDITATION

And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage. And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house. For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the corn, of the new wine, and the oil, unto the chambers, where are the vessels of the san

DAILY MEDITATION

Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: Proverbs 3:9 Whatever we have or will receive is simply because of the grace, favor of God. As believers in God the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer of life we understand that it is through God, His presence, power, and promises we have our being and live. God places before us opportunities in which we can live by His giving unto us and our return for such love is that we would also pour out to one another and His entire creation, exercising the Power Of Giving. You and I must choose what we will do, what we would render unto God for all He has, is and shall do in our lives. I encourage you today, no matt

DAILY MEDITATION

He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:19 God, because of who He is, is giving and as a result we have not been consumed and we have been forgiven, made whole, and given opportunities to advance in His promises of life and life more abundantly. God has done all things for you and I to enjoy and rest in His intent of abundant living. God gave to us so that we might give life, to one another, and to all His creation. You and I have been chosen by God, return to Him and our return is in our giving. Exercise the Power Of Giving releasing God in the fullness of His presence, powe

DAILY MEDITATION

Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 1:3 The Power Of Giving is activated as we give, return unto God that which He has given unto us. It is God’s specific intent to bless you that you might bless your space and world. As we pour out what God pours into us we serve as His visible presence and actors in the world. Thus, The Lord of hosts says, return unto me by giving, pouring out of the presence, power, and promises of God activated in your life as a model, light unto others and all God’s creation. God created you and I and the world for His glory, revelation, an

DAILY MEDITATION

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 In the midst of all we are experiencing; the challenges, unpredictability, and incapacity seen very clearly through the COVID-19 pandemic, we have one trusted space, our relationship and reliance on God. It is in God that we stand under the pouring out of His grace, favor on our lives that we are not yet consumed, overpowered by our experiences. The pouring out, giving of God unto us, despite and in spite of us, is not because we earned or deserved it but simply because of the love and favor of God on our lives. God’s giving to

DAILY MEDITATION

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17 God chose you and I and deposited, gave to us gifts so that we might be His visible presence in the world, pouring out His presence, power, and promises to all. The Power Of Giving is our portal in which we represent and share God that all might receive and live in the life and life more abundantly promised by Him. What God has given you, in fact, you yourself, is a good and perfect gift to the world. Value and appreciate you, your experiences, and journey as a contributor not just to your own abundant life but also to everyon

DAILY MEDITATION

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. Romans 11:29 God has given unto us gifts and calling and has declared that it is ours. The gifts and calling God has so graciously imparted to you is without repentance. God poured out to you, graciously and unconditionally, as a part of His overall purpose and plan for all creation and He has not and does not regret it. Knowing ourselves and who we are, really, should generate a sense of gratitude to God in which we are willing participants, co-creators with Him for the life and life more abundantly promised. As a result of God graciously and without repentance pouring out to us is the foundation of our ability to exercise the Pow

DAILY MEDITATION

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Numbers 23:19 What God has said He will make good! We as disciples of Christ, people of faith can count on the Word of God. As God has spoken it, it shall be. God is not one who can lie nor is He one in which He reneges on His Word, His Word has been given for the specific intent for us to believe, receive and act upon. Thus, as God gives we can be assured to rely on it and pour it out, giving as well. Our Power Of Giving is rooted in God’s faithfulness, to and for us, and as a result we can give with the same level

COVID-19-MESSAGE FROM PASTOR-ADJUSTMENT OF WORSHIP AND MINISTRIES EXPERIENCES

Beloved, Grace, Mercy, and Peace be unto you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. As people of faith we are responsible and accountable for the life and life more abundantly promised by God for our lives, our communities, and our world. The Word of God in Genesis 1:28 declares, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion . . . . God has favored us to be caretakers of His creation and invited us into co-creator status with Him to ensure that what He has created is well cared for and expanded. Therefore, as our 2020 Lenten Series challenges, let us “Give Up To Give To," revealing God inte

“I am God—yes, I Am. I haven’t changed. And because I haven’t changed, you, the descendants of Jacob, haven’t been destroyed. You have a long history of ignoring my commands. You haven’t done a thing I’ve told you. Return to me so I can return to you,” says God-of-the-Angel-Armies. “You ask, ‘But how do we return? “Begin by being honest. Do honest people rob God? But you rob me day after day. “You ask, ‘How have we robbed you?’ “The tithe and the offering—that’s how! And now you’re under a curse—the whole lot of you—because you’re robbing me. Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury so there will be ample provisions in my Temple. Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itse

DAILY MEDITATION

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Romans 12:6 Our faith is critical to us accessing and exercising our Power Of Giving. God has given unto each of us gifts and we must believe that we possess it from God and to be used for God’s purpose and plan. God has given unto us our gifts that we might give, reflecting Him and His glory in the world and circumstances in which we exist. As we struggle through the onslaught of the COVID-19, what God has given unto you must be used now to benefit all and your gift can only be used to the proportion of your faith. We cannot expect to use what i

DAILY MEDITATION

But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. Philemon 1:14 We as disciples of Christ are called to have the mind of Christ. To have the mind of Christ requires our diligently pursuing and embracing an intimate relationship with God. The more we are intimate, spending time with God in conversation (prayer), study of His Word, and Worship both in our personal and collective lives, we become one with Him transforming both our heart and thus our thinking and actions to that of God. As we have the mind of Christ we think and act in ways that gives, the Power Of Giving, rooted in the understanding and joy of God’s giving to us H
