God Doesn’t Stay In a Box!


“But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house that I have built.”

1 Kings 8:27 ASV

God is so big and cannot be contained. Even Solomon the wisest man on earth acknowledged this truth.

He knew that the temple he built could not contain the God of the Universe.

We know God is big but do we REALLY know it?

The way we see God is determined by the way we have been conditioned in the past. That can be by people close to us, TV, news, books we have read and so much more.

But that needs to change. We need the limitations broken because God is crazy big.

This week I cried out to Him to break the box I have put Him in. There are so many big things I am trusting Him for and I feel like there are limitations I have put on Him. Sometimes we put Him in a box without even knowing it.

But, God doesn’t not stay in a box.

The only way we can break the negative conditioning about God’s bigness and greatness is by immersing ourselves in the Word of God which is the Truth. We need an increase of God’s presence in our daily lives because this is the thing, God is big but our view of God is small at times. So when we consume more of His Word and get into His presence our perception of God begins to get bigger, it begins to grow.

We need to reprogram our minds with the Word of God.

God wants to perform miracles in our lives but if we only see a weak, powerless and feeble God then how is that going to happen? Remember the Israelites and what they said when they arrived to the land God promised them?

“Let’s go at once to take the land, he said. We can certainly conquer it!

But the other men who had explored the land with him disagreed. We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are! So they spread this bad report about the land among the Israelites: “The land we traveled through and explored will devour anyone who goes to live there. All the people we saw were huge. We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought too.”

Numbers 13:30-33 NLT

God doesn’t stay in a box. He is crazy big, He is the God of the universe and nothing is too big for Him. There is nothing He can’t do.

God break the box we have put you in and the limitations we have put on You!

Show us your greatness and awesomeness anew again!

Amen

Bless you friends

The “Impossible” Question


“And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord. “

Luke 1:45 ESV

When the angel of the Lord visited Mary and told her she would have a baby boy, she didn’t doubt. She believed completely. And because she believed, her cousin Elizabeth being prompted by the Holy Spirit declared to her the words in the scripture above.

There is a blessing for those who choose to believe the promises God has promised them no matter how impossible it seems at the time. God is the God of the impossible and He wants you and me to trust Him.

So my question to you is, Do you believe God can do the impossible in your life today?

No matter how impossible things seem, do you know that you know, God will answer you and come through for you?

Let’s be like Mary who believed the Lord without a single doubt.

The Lord will never let you down so believe in Him always!

Bless you friends

Stop Eating “JUNK” Food!


In the past few weeks God has been teaching me to stop eating what the devil is dishing out.

Because the devil has a lot of crazy stuff he would like you and me to believe. And I was just there eating what ever he was dishing out which caused fear, anxiety, and hopelessness in me. I would cry out to God to help me in the midst of the attack because it was intense but God began to show me that I was not filtering the thoughts I was getting.

Our filter is the Word of God and that’s how we need to be measuring up everything that comes our way.

So He showed me that I need to reject the lies instead of entertaining them. And that’s what we tend to do right? Instead of taking the lies to God immediately we start thinking about what ifs, and project possible outcomes that are totally not according to God’s will for us. We let the fear shut us down.

But if we are going to hold on to the promises God has for us we need to stop doing this. We need to stop eating everything the devil is dishing out.

IT’S ALL LIES…

IT’S ALL LIES…

Resist and reject all of it. It’s not going to be easy I understand but God is with you and He will help you as you cry out to Him. The thoughts will come but they don’t have to pitch their tents in your mind. Cast them out with the authority Jesus has given you.

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV

So as I come to the end of this post I want to encourage you with one more scripture,

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”

Philippians 4:8 NLT

Change what you think about. Stop thinking about the negative things the devil keeps trying to remind you about but instead think on the things God is doing in your life, the words He has spoken to you, on His beauty, on His grace, on the amazing things He has in store for you, His promises and so much more.

With that I have come to the end of the post.

Bless you friends and have a great weekend!

Hold On


You need to hold on to God’s promises because He has so much in store for you. He has amazing things lined up for you. But it’s the standing in faith that is not as easy as it seems. It’s a fight to hold on to what God has promised you.

It’s our responsibility to do the hard work of standing on God’s truths and promises for our lives in the face of attack and opposition. It won’t be easy. We will fall and fail numerous times but we must always get back up and dig our feet deeper in our faith in God. Because He will fulfill and bring to pass what He promised us, period!

I think of Abraham and Sarah who held on to God’s promises. They held on to His promises despite the challenges they faced and the challenges were tough. But in all that they didn’t give up and lose heart. Even when they fell short, they still got up and dug deeper in their faith in God. And as they did that they received what God had promised them.

So as I come to the end of this post I want to encourage you to keep holding on to God’s promises in the face of opposition and attack. It’s going to be a fight for sure but even when you fall make sure to get back up and dig deeper in your faith in God, even when you haven’t seen the answer to your prayers yet, and when you haven’t seen the breakthrough because God is faithful. You will receive what God has promised you!

Bless you friends

It’s Just A Matter Of Time.


When it comes to God’s faithfulness, it’s just a matter of time.

He WILL come through for you and He HAS heard your prayers. Nothing can stop God’s faithfulness in your life. The fact that you are here is proof alone that He is faithful.

Don’t entertain the enemies lies about God’s faithfulness. The enemy will try to make us believe that God is not really good, that He doesn’t care for us, and that we can’t really trust Him because He is not reliable. There are so many other lies he tries to tell us but we must NOT give in to them.

When talking about God’s faithfulness it’s not a question of ‘IF’ God is going to come through for us or ‘IF’ we will see His breakthrough in our lives or ‘IF’ He will hear our prayers. Because of His faithfulness He has heard and answered our prayers, and breakthrough is guaranteed!

I think of the Israelites who were slaves for about 400 years (Acts 7:6, 7). Was there a time in that period as they were crying our to God that they doubted Him? Did they think He didn’t care about what they were going through and that He didn’t hear their prayers? I don’t know.

But one thing I do know is that for the Israelites it wasn’t a question of ‘IF’ God would deliver them and hear their prayers, it was a matter of ‘WHEN’. And at the right time God did deliver His people out of bondage because of His faithfulness.

I also think of Abraham and Sarah who had to wait a long time until God’s promise to them were fulfilled. Then there was Hannah who was barren and had to endure ridicule for a season but through it all, God came through for them. He was faithful to them. He never let them down.

So as I come to the end of this post I want to encourage you to not doubt God, don’t give up just because your situation doesn’t seem to be turning around, don’t listen to the negative voices that are trying to get you discouraged and trying to get you to make you lose your faith in God. Don’t let fear overwhelm you because after all is said and done,

God is faithful forever!

And there is nothing that can ever change that truth.

Bless you friends!
