Is this the day?
Is this the day the door opens?
Is this the day my prayers are answered?
Is this the day I get my breakthrough?
The truth is I don’t know the day but that’s not the point. The point is to be expectant.
The point is to put your hope in the Lord. Today could be the day but if it’s not keep trusting,
Keep declaring, Keep doing, fully confident the day is coming.
The question is no longer, “will the day come” but “when is the day”.
The enemy will try to deceive you into believing the day won’t come. He will try to make you believe
the sickness is permanent, the lack is permanent, the broken relationship is permanent, the addiction
is permanent, the list goes on and on but he is wrong.
Your answer to prayer will come, it might be already here, the sickness will leave, you are healed,
what the enemy stole will be restored, poverty will be broken off your life…..I think you get the
Mephiboseth was a cripple and didn’t have much going for him. As a baby his nurse fled with him but
in her haste she dropped him and he became a cripple. He didn’t have a say in the
matter. (2 Samuel 4:4) Talk about an unfortunate circumstance.
But when all was lost something pretty amazing happened.
“The king said, Is there not still someone of the house of Saul to whom I may show the [unfailing, unsought,
unlimited] mercy and kindness of God?”
2 Samuel 9:3
There is nothing Mephibosheth did differently to get the kings attention. No one went to the king and
appealed on his behalf, no. He was a nobody in one instant and in the next he was eating at the
king’s table! And that is why we must live a life of expectancy and faith.
I don’t think Mephibosheth had any idea his life would change so drastically. But as sons and
daughters of the King we can be expectant. A life without hope is death. What David did
for Mephibosheth is a picture of the Father’s heart I believe. We don’t deserve His goodness, grace
and mercy but He has given it anyway.
Like Mephibosheth the Lord can do the same thing and more. We need to be expectant always.
Expect YAH to move in your life today.
Expect an answer to your prayers.
Expect healing, expect deliverance, expect breakthrough.
The Lord is faithful. He won’t let us down.
Have a great weekend friends……
“Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat the Lord, that He may take away the frogs
from me and my people; and I will let the people go that they may sacrifice to the Lord.
Moses said to Pharaoh, glory over me in this; dictate when I shall pray [to the Lord] for you, your servants,
and your people, that the frogs may be destroyed from you and your houses and remain only in the river.
And [Pharaoh] said, Tomorrow. [Moses] said, Let it be as you say, that you may know that there is no one
like the Lord our God.”
I am stumped! The land of Egypt was overrun by frogs (this was the second plague in a series of plagues).
When Pharaoh couldn’t get rid of them he called Moses and Aaron to pray to YAH to get rid of them.
When they came, Moses gave him an interesting proposition if you can call it that,
“dictate when I shall pray [to the Lord] for you, your servants, and your people, that the frogs may be
destroyed from you and your houses and remain only in the river.”
Instead of saying “immediately” Pharaoh told Moses to pray “tomorrow”!!!
And that’s what got me stumped! Why wait till tomorrow???
The plague could have stopped immediately but instead, the plague would stop the next day!!
How many of us are like that though?
How many of us are tolerating today waiting to pray tomorrow??? (I am guilty of this!!)
Yeshua is waiting to move in your life today not tomorrow, next week, next month or next year.
He wants to move in your life today. He wants you to pray today, to put your faith in Him today!
You may think you need to wait for everything in your life to get right before you pray but that’s a lie.
The time is now!
The time to seek Him is now, not when you are perfect.
Pharaoh’s problem could have been solved straight away but he decided tomorrow would be the day.
Please get the heart of the message. Now is the time to get your breakthrough.
Yeshua is ready to move today and not tomorrow.
Don’t wait to ask, don’t wait to pray.
Your victory is not scheduled for some day in the future so be expectant today.
Expect YAH to move in your life today because today is the day!
Bless you friends….
THOUGHT OF THE DAY.
“And Simon (Peter) answered, Master, we toiled all night [exhaustingly]
and caught nothing [in our nets]. But on the ground of Your word, I will
lower the nets [again].
And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish;
and as their nets were [at the point of] breaking,
They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and take hold
with them. And they came and filled both boats,
so that they began to sink.”
Peter and his team had spent the whole night toiling trying to catch fish but caught
With all their experience, resources and strength they came up empty!
Is that not a perfect picture of what happens when we rely on our own strength
instead of relying on the strength of YAH??
We need to understand that in our own strength we will fail, period!
No amount of money, no amount of experience, no amount of strength will ever
But look at what happens when Peter listened to Yeshua;
“And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish;”
They caught an incredible amount of fish. The number was so great
that they had to call their partners to help them.
But the number was still so great that both boats began to sink!
We need to stop relying on ourselves and look to YAH.
It is when we respond to Him and obey Him that things begin to
Impossible things begin to happen as well when we look to
Him instead of looking to ourselves.
We have a choice today, we can either “toil all night in our strength”
but come up empty or we can obey what Yeshua has told us and see
breakthrough in the situation we are in at the moment?
The choice is yours!
Bless you friends.
“And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is
heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his
Luke 1:12, 13
This scripture spoke to me deeply today. As I read it something jumped
out at me. Something I didn’t see before.
We know the story of Zacharias and how he didn’t believe the angel Gabriel.
We know because he didn’t believe he would not be able to speak until his son
But there is something else in that story that we need to see and learn from.
“Do not be afraid, Zacharias for your prayer is heard; “
Zacharias had prayed for a son! His wife was barren and well advanced in years (doesn’t
that sound familiar??)
“And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances
of the Lord blameless.
But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.”
Luke 1:6, 7
The word doesn’t tell us how long they were praying for. All we know is Zacharias prayer to YAH
for a child was heard!
That really encouraged me to keep praying! Time has passed but that doesn’t mean YAH has
forgotten about me.
It doesn’t mean He has forgotten about US!
He has heard our prayers……period!
Why it hasn’t come to pass yet, only YAH knows. But don’t lose hope, don’t give up.
People may be talking about you, and looking at you funny because your breakthrough hasn’t
come yet but hold on to hope. Yeshua will come through for you.
John’s mom Elizabeth said something amazing during her pregnancy;
“Thus the Lord has dealt with me, in the days when He looked on me, to take
away my reproach among people.”
The Lord took away her reproach among the people. There was a time when people looked
down upon her because of her bareness but that all changed when YAH heard their prayers
and answered them!
He will take away your reproach! You may be looked down upon because you haven’t got your
breakthrough but it is coming. Keep on praying in faith and EXPECT an answer.
Zacharias prayed for a child but after some time stopped believing he would receive the child.
Let’s trust YAH no matter how hard it gets. No matter how hopeless it seems keep on praying and
believing you have your answer.
I want to share one more amazing scripture before I close;
“And Mary said, My soul magnifies and extols the Lord,
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
For He has looked upon the low station and humiliation of His handmaiden.
For behold, from now on all generations [of all ages] will call me blessed and
declare me happy and to be envied!”
That is the God we serve friends. He doesn’t enjoy seeing you being humiliated.
In the place that you are right now, He will answer you.
In your low station keep praying. Trust Him to come through for you.
Bless you friends…..
“Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel
grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”
And she said, “let your maidservant find favor in your sight.”
So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer
1 Samuel 1:17, 18
This story is very close to my heart. Hannah’s story encourages
me every time I read it.
I want to touch on something that I noticed as I read her story
How many of us can identify with Hannah? She was trusting God
for a child. In the meantime she was been ridiculed and verbally
abused by Peninnah. How hard that must of been.
Let’s look at another important point.
“This man went up from his city yearly to worship and sacrifice
to the Lord of hosts in Shiloh.”
1 Samuel 1:3
The bible doesn’t tell us the exact amount of years they went to
worship. All we know is that Hannah couldn’t have children.
But every year she went to worship and every year she had to deal
with the onslaught of words from Peninnah. That must of being so
hard to deal with.
But there is something I want you to see.
When Eli spoke to her she did something amazing. Let’s look
at the scripture,
“Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel
grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”
And she said, Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.
So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer
1 Samuel 1:17, 18
“She went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad”
That act really spoke to me.
She believed the word. She had faith she had her answer and
changed her attitude and behavior!
I haven’t been doing that enough.
I should live with an attitude of faith.
If I am going to receive what God has promised me
there has to be a change of heart, there has to be a change of attitude,
and a change of behavior. I can’t have faith and walk around like nothing
is going to happen. I can’t have faith in God and live like God hasn’t
heard me. That was such a powerful revelation for me.
Hannah didn’t hesitate when she heard the word.
And look at what happened when she did that,
“Then they rose early in the morning and worshiped before the
Lord, and returned and came to their house at Ramah.
And Elkanah knew his wife, and the Lord remembered her.
So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived
and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “
because I have asked for him from the Lord.”
1 Samuel 1:19, 20 (emphasis mine)
Not only did she change her attitude and behavior but she
worshiped the Lord with her husband!
Worship is so important in the life of a believer.
In her mind her prayer had been answered and that’s
why she worshiped the Lord!
I don’t know about you but that blows my mind.
What are you worshiping God for today?
If you have your answer worship!
If you don’t see your answer still worship!
We need to live a life of worship.
We don’t just worship when we get stuff,
we also worship Him because He is God!
What did their worship sound like?
I think they were worshiping the Lord for giving them a child.
They were worshiping Him because He heard their prayers.
That is amazing.
Even the words she spoke changed!
Her faith in God had an impact on what came out of her mouth.
Your faith should be spoken out, friends.
You can’t speak negatively and say you have faith.
You can’t speak negatively and see your breakthrough!
The way you speak must change if you have faith.
You should be worshiping the Lord for the great things He has done for you!
As I close I would like you to think about how you are speaking?
What is your attitude and behavior like?
Are you complaining, are you talking about how things
are not going to workout or are you speaking out what you believe?
And that is my challenge to you today friends…..
“Then to the centurion Jesus said, Go; it shall be done
for you as you have believed. And the servant boy was
restored to health at that very moment.”
Matthew 8:13 (AMP)
“Jesus turned around and, seeing her, He said, Take
courage, daughter! Your faith has made you well. And at
once the woman was restored to health.”
Matthew 9:22 (AMP)
“Then he touched their eyes, saying, According to your
faith and trust and reliance [on the power invested in
Me] be it done to you.”
Matthew 9:29 (AMP)
Your faith in God counts! The people I mentioned in the
scriptures above all received their breakthrough because
of their faith in God! Let me say that again:
All the people I mentioned in the scriptures above got
their breakthrough because of their faith in God!
I was challenged when I got this revelation.
The blind men, the woman with the issue of blood, the
centurion who had a sick servant, and many many more
got the attention of Jesus because of their faith.
Are there things I am trusting God for?? Yes, yes, yes!!!
As 2016 comes I am challenged to be more resolved in my
Have faith in God!
Have faith in God because He is faithful. We are here at the
end of the year because He brought us through!
Man didn’t bring us through. God did!
Let us look at the woman with the issue of blood. Her
situation was bad. She had used up all her money on
physicians but her health didn’t get better. Instead it
got worse. She suffered for twelve years! I don’t know
about you friends but twelve years is a long time. There was
no relief for her in man. He didn’t have an answer to her
problem. (He very seldom does)
But anyway one thing led to another and she got healed
by Jesus! She had faith that He would heal her. When she
touched the Master’s cloak her faith was absolute (I WILL
be healed). It was her faith in Him that healed her from
twelve years of pain!
It was her faith in the Savior that rescued her from the
hold of the enemy!
“Then He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you.
Go in peace.” Luke 8:48
The woman got to a point in her faith where she believed
Jesus could heal her. Are you at that point?
Are you at a point in your faith where you believe Jesus
is the answer, the only answer??
The message today is simple: Have faith in God!
There is so much God has in store for us but we must

It has been a week since I got back from Australia and
I have been racking my brain wondering what I should
share with you. It’s crazy!! At first I thought I would
share the places I saw, the fun things I did, but quickly
scratched that. It was fun going to the beach and sight
seeing but there was more that happened. The kind of
stuff that can change a man! Without taking anymore
of your time let’s get started.
This is why we went. The Kingdom Festival happens every
year and this year, my pastor’s wife was the guest speaker!
If you live close to the Gold Coast I strongly urge you to
attend Kingdom Festival 2016. In fact, wherever you are
in the world I ask you to prayerfully consider going to
Kingdom Festival 2016. Please click here to find out more.
On the first night of the festival we went for something
called “vision night”. This was where the pastor cast the vision
for Kingdom Festival. I was deeply impacted by the event.
The dinner was held at the Metricon stadium. God told
him Kingdom Festival will be held at the stadium. It seems
crazy but you know what, that stadium will be filled!
Kingdom will be held at the Metricon because God said
so and because His people believed Him!
The vision was so clear, so precise. That is what vision
is supposed to be, very clear, precise with no room for
misinterpretation! I was moved. The pastor had faith
and he was declaring what God showed him. That is what
faith is. It is being bold
enough to speak and declare what God has revealed
even when it doesn’t make sense.
I want to challenge you about your vision. Is it clear?
Can someone run with it after they read it? I am speaking
to myself as well. I am still unclear about what God has
in store for me but I want to be clear. I want my vision
to be as clear as day!
One of the speakers at the Festival had raised numerous
people from the dead (not at the Festival but in his life)
Lots of people were healed during the Festival because
of him. I am sharing this because I realized something.
The days of miracles is not over. We are living in the
end times and miracles are happening. Jesus said
greater things shall you do! I want to do those great
things. It is not for a special set of people but for
anyone and everyone! That is the revelation I got after
hearing the speaker.
I want you to understand something. Going to Australia
was a miracle for me. My church has a congregation of
about 3500 people right. So out of all those people I was
chosen to go. In a team of 6 and I was among those
who were chosen! I don’t take that lightly. God was everywhere
at the Festival.
He was in the people I met, in the word I heard during
the Festival, in every worship song that was sung, in the
fellowship of the saints. I can’t put into words what I
experienced. God put imparted something in me,
something I will fight to maintain! This was not just another trip.
I refuse to stay unchanged! God did some deep work
in me and I refuse to sit on it.
This was not a coincidence but a moment that was
ordained by God.
Don’t stop trusting in God friend! He wants to take you places.
He wants to show you how good He is. It’s not about how
clever you are, or how rich you are, which family you came
from, which country you live in. Are you available?
Do you trust Him? There is nothing stopping Him
from blessing you, from bringing the breakthrough,
from healing you! Run to Him!
As I finish I want to share a few more pictures with you.
There was a lot more to share but for the sake of time and space
I cut it short. I hope this post spoke to you.
And that is all I have to share. God bless you all….! 🙂
I have been talking to God about my life. I don’t know about you
but as I look at my life there are things I am trusting God for that are
way over my head. Things that are bigger than me.
I look at those things and I can’t even can’t make sense of it!
But it’s okay right?
Okay to dream big, okay to ask God for the unimaginable?
We all have something like that, something crazy and big!
Something only God can do….something you know that you
know only God can do!
But as I was meditating on the sheer absurdity of what I
was asking God, a friend of mine shared a scripture that opened
Jesus looked hard at them and said, “No chance at all if you think you can pull it off yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust God to do it.” (Matthew 19:26 MSG)
There are a lot of things in life where we simply need God!
How many times do we try to do things in our own strength only
God wants us to trust Him.
Whatever you are trusting God for no matter how big it is, please
know that you can trust the Lord!
You have a chance if you dare to trust Him, but no chance at
all if you try to pull it off by yourself because of your lack
of faith in Him!!!
So the word today is, trust! Trust the Lord when you are
faced with the impossible!
You have a chance in the face of the impossible if you will
trust Him but no chance if you try to do it on your own!
Ever feel overwhelmed with life?
Ever feel like everything is too much and you just want to tap out?
I was reflecting on my life this week (I have been doing a lot of
that lately). A lot has happened already this year good and bad.
Its easy to get discouraged these days. It’s easy to think God has
abandoned you! It’s easy to give up. I say that because as I was
reflecting on my life and the plans I had for this year, things I
want to do, places I want to go to, eveything felt so overwhelming!!
I cried out to God in that time. I asked Him to help me! I looked
to God for some sort of answer to the craziness I was feeling…..
Then it came, the answer,
I realised God is in control, He knows exactly where I am. Not sort
of or a bit confused but He knows EXACTLY where I am!
Then another thought came to me,
God intentionally allowed me to be here because He knew the
next opportunity, the next door will only open when I am here! No
matter how hard it is, how hopeless it seems this is the place that
will make it possible for the other door to open!
I need to be in this space if I am to walk in the next amazing door
God has for me! This place is preparing me for the next place where
ever that “place” is!
Think about Jabez:
Jabez was honorable above his brothers; but his mother named him Jabez [sorrow maker], saying, Because I bore him in pain. Jabez cried to the God of Israel, saying, Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and You would keep me from evil so it might not hurt me! And God granted his request. (1 Chronicles 4:9-10 AMP)
He was in a difficult situation. His story is not just about being named
Jabez. From the day he was born he was called Jabez. Who knows
the ridicule he went through as a teen. All we know it got to a point
that he had enough! He cried out to the Lord!
He needed to be there for God to move on his life!
He needed to be in that place for the next door to open!
Did he enjoy being ridiculed and the struggle?
Did he feel helpless and hopeless?
I would like to think so but dispite all that,
GOD HAD A PLAN FOR HIM!
What about Joseph?!!!
He had a dream but he was sold into slavery! After things seemed
to turn around he was then thrown into prison!
And Joseph’s master took him and put him in the prison, a place where the state prisoners were confined; so he was there in the prison. (Genesis 39:20 AMP)
But as we all know, Joseph had to be in Egypt!! Joseph didn’t
understand at first but he needed to be there! Yes it seemed like
God abandoned him, yes it seemed like God was cruel and heartless
but the truth is, God was with him every step of his way!
For the next door to open Joseph had to be in Egypt! For
Joseph to accomplish God’s call on his life he had to go to
What does all that mean you might be thinking?
You might be in a place that is hard, a place where nothing
seems to be happening, a place that seems like a dead end but
that’s not true! That “dead-end” is where the next door is going
to open! It’s where that next big promotion will come through!
It’s where you will get to know God more!
It’s where breakthrough will come through!
Don’t quit, don’t tap out, but trust in the Lord.
Your promotion is around the corner, amazing things are in store
in that hard, frustrating place!
Things may seem dead and inactive but that’s not true! There is a lot
happening in the background! God is busy, He has gone ahead
of you to prepare the way!
So to end my story, after realizing all this I realized I don’t need
to worry! My life is in God’s hands. He knows everything I am
He has an amazing plan for my life.
I just need to trust Him consistently!
Where I am is exactly where He needs me to be because
the next door will open here and no where else!
And that is the same for you if you will trust Him!
He has only good things in store for you! Amen 😄
