And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Isaiah 49:6 The confidence we possess is critical to our achieving and spreading that which should be as God has ordained for our lives and spaces. Confidence is not borne from external forces, external forces only nurtures our confidence, it is the internal power of self-value in which confidence is borne and breathes. Last night as we watched the debacle of the first presidential debate for the 2020 election, it was absolutely embarrassing t

Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: b

For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region. Acts 13:47-49 The Lord has commanded that our experiences in life be a light to the world, His creation. Remember, in the beginning it was void and dark and God, His Spirit, brooded over the deep of darkness and out of it created the world by turning on, commanding the light. The circumstances of your individual life and those of our

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. Matthew 21:42-44 God has a way of bringing out of our situations that which becomes useful for us, turning any thing around in such a way that it reveals His power over even that which appears impossible. God often works in counterflow of the natural a

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 We are compelled to Fill Our House because God has provided for us as well as our being and space in order that we enjoy and live in the life and life more abundantly promised. It is God’s intent that you and I are connected to one another as a source of flow of His presence, power, and promises into His creation. God chose us, humankind, to be the crown of His creation, providing the necessary source of constant and sustainable relationship with Him but also as a source of the flow of life’s promises. Therefore, God allows the circumstance of our li

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Philippians 2:3-5 The desire of our plea to Fill Our House is our willingness to be the visible presence of God in the world; ambassadors for Christ. As ambassadors for Christ, the epitome of sacrificial and unconditional love for humankind, is not an easy feat, to be honest, it is extremely difficult. The difficulty of loving and doing so sacrificially and unconditionally try our souls like nothing else; tests the proposition of Chri

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:4-5 Fill Our House is our plea to abide in God and God in us for the purposes of producing that which God intends for our lives. Our willingness to make available to God ourselves in total, decreases our will and way so that God will increase in us, transforming our lives to the very intent of Him and His plan. When we stand ready for God to Fill Our House, we receive from God that which is necessary for u

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. I Thessalonians 5:23-24 Fill Our House, being and space, is our request to be made right with God, His Word for our lives, and thus, we become equipped with everything necessary for us to accomplish what God has promised. God is pleased with our willingness to be filled with the fullness of His presence, power, and promises and will sanctify us, set us apart for the accomplishment of His will. God declared before we were ever born what it is that He intends for our lives as a

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1-2 The challenge for each of us in order to live in the promises for our life and life more abundantly is to be willing. Our willingness triggers the flow of God’s presence, power, and promises in and for our lives, Filling Our House by flooding our being and space. Fill Our House is our declaration that we are willing vessels to be used of God and be

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6 As we Fill Our House, being and space, with the fullness of God, His Spirt we are consumed by the ways and will of God. The ways and will of God transforms our thinking and thus our actions to align with God’s intent to accomplish in us what He has begun with our creation. God’s completing the work of us is our assurance that as we “per-fect“ our way to align to His will, we will inherit every one of His promises to and for our lives, both now and eternally. It is our perfecting of the will and way of God for our lives that communicates to God tha

And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: I Thessalonians 3:12 Fill Our House is a direct result of our outpouring of God’s love to all His creation. God delights in you and I being His visible living presence in the world and the more we are intentional about representing Him and His love to His creation, the more He blesses us with the abundance of life. The things of life are great and God gives those but the abundance of life, the Spirit abiding in the fullness of our being and space, is what produces the things of life. The abundance is the love of God manifested in His Spirit that leads and guides us into a

There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. It’s not at all fanciful for me to think this way about you. My prayers and hopes have deep roots in reality. You have, after all, stuck with me all the way from the time I was thrown in jail, put on trial, and came out of it in one piece. All along you have experienced with me the most generous help from God. He knows how much I love and miss you these days. Sometimes I think I feel as strongly about you as Christ does! So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love

Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. Deuteronomy 15:10 To Fill Our House, being and space, with the presence, power, and promises of God requires our giving, reinvesting what God has blessed us with to bless all of His creation. The challenge for us is be the best that we can be and act accordingly is a natural outpouring of God’s love, grace, and promises to us. The more we give, the more God will give back to us, setting us up to receive the exceeding abundantly, more than we can ever ask or think. Despite an

The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Deuteronomy 28:8 God has been commanded that your house be full in your being and space with all of His promises for your life, yielding a joy-filled life. Your joy filled life is rich with more than tangible things, it is also the overflowing of the intangible, the Spirit of God and the fruits thereof, positioning you to overcome any and all things. Today, set a course for God to Fill Your House, leading and guiding you into the abundance of His fullness of power as well as making you fat with everything and

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10 Our responsibility for the wellbeing of our being and space is dependent upon our ability to give. Giving is not about losing anything, instead it is about the pouring out, reinvesting, of what we have to make our being and space better. God has blessed us and to ensure those blessing are full it is our responsibility to reinvest those blessings. Our reinvesting is about our giving; giving to our families, community, an

And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:19-20 To Fill Our House, our being and space, it is required that we put forth an effort to receive the outpouring of God in our lives. God invites you and I into a co-creator relationship with Him in order for us to live in His promises of our life and life more abundantly, despite and in spite of our situations and shortcomings. God’s love for us transcends whatever would stand in our way of being full of His presence, power, and promises.

He quoted a proverb: “‘Can a blind man guide a blind man?’ Wouldn’t they both end up in the ditch? An apprentice doesn’t lecture the master. The point is to be careful who you follow as your teacher. Luke 6:39-40 (MSG) Fill Our House, space and being, is an equipping mechanism that empowers us to share God’s love for us, transforming our being and space to the intent of God in order that all will be fruitful and multiply. God created everything to reveal who He is and God is love and thus, the more we understand and operate within God’s love, we bring to pass God’s intent. The love of God flows freely to us all and it never runs dry; a constant and powerful flow, penetrating any and all th

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38 The power of a generous spirit releases the fullness of God’s presence, power, and promises in our lives. Our God is a big God and therefore is more than enough for us and all of His creation to live in the abundance He intends. There is absolutely nothing in your life or will come to your life that the fullness of God will not be sufficient to equip you to overcome and inherit all things, the challenge is for us to access God’s fullness and operate in our best selv

Proverbs 3:9-10 Fill Our House is more than God just pouring out on our being and space His Spirit, it is also what we do with what God pours out that makes room for the more, the continuous filling of our lives. The promises of life and life more abundantly are eternal and overflowing, now and throughout eternity. You and I have more than enough, no matter what it looks like, thus, our house, space and being, have access to a perpetual state of fullness and is made possible by our willingness to give, pouring out of t

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also
