What is in store for you in the future? God only knows...and this is what He says, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Raise your level of expectation.

We often think of salvation as a peaceful time when angels rejoice and our burdens are lifted away. And although those things are true there is way more to the story. What really happens when Jesus walks into your life?

Everyone finds themselves in frustrating situations. As children of God we often expect God to get us out of bad situations or fix difficult circumstances, but God didn't save us for our own pleasure but for His purpose. So what do we do when we find ourselves in a frustrating situation? What should we expect from God?

There are many opinions about you. There is the way others see you and the way you see yourself, but the real you is what God sees. You were uniquely created by God and if you want to become everything God created you to be you must discover and embrace the real you.

Are you holding on to the past? Are you afraid to let go of the way it's always been? God has new things for us but we cannot receive them while holding on to the past. Let go of the past and embrace what God has for you today.

Your enemy is on the prowl looking for any opportunity to destroy you, but if you know how he works you can defeat every attack- you can overcome every challenge.

Are you the Walking Dead? Are you alive but not really living? There’s a power that can bring you to life. Since sin came into the world every person is born spiritually dead; completely separated from God, with no desire or ability to pursue God. But God has dispatched the life-giving Holy Spirit to awaken the spirit of man giving you and me the opportunity to be brought to life.

You don’t have to live a horizontal Christian life. You know – When you’ve been knocked down so many times that you finally just get used to living on the ground. Jesus has saved you and provided you with everything you need to stand up and live a vertical Christian life.

We all face giants. There are things in our lives that are just too big for us to handle on our own. But God created you to be a giant killer. With His power at work in your life you can face any giant. So grab a stone and start running toward the big challenges in your life.

There are two voices speaking to you and I. One voice is the crowd. They say, "Come with us. We don't need God. We can save ourselves." The other voice emanates from the cross, "Come to me and I will save you. I will give your life meaning and purpose. I am your hope - your only means of true salvation"

Christians ought to be happy. Christians ought to live with joy; the kind of joy that isn't based on circumstances but on celebrating who God is and what He has done for us. Let the joy of the Lord strengthen you.

Everyday the Kingdoms of this world are calling. They are calling to be a part of their world; to pursue their pleasures. Forget about the call of the world, King Jesus is calling you. You are invited to COME be a part of His Kingdom and a member of His royal family.

ARE YOU BEING PELTED? Everyone has stones thrown at them. People throw stones of hatred and jealousy. The enemy throws stones of trouble and accusation. We've all felt life pelting us with troubles and trials, but with God's help you can take those stones and build a step to the next level. With the right attitude and actions, the attack that was meant to bring you down will lift you up

The Church of Jesus Christ is not a defeated, desperate group of people, but a mighty force for good in the world. We possess the authority of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Tuesday, July 30, 2013
Jesus said that we are the light of the world. It’s our job to shine the light of joy in a dark and miserable world. Christians are supposed to be different. We are supposed to be filled with unconditional joy; the kind of joy that makes people want what we’ve got. So put on a smile and let it shine

Can you feel it? Something is changing. God is about to do something new in your life. Forget about the way it was or the way it's been and prepare yourself...Something is about to happen.

What's the secret to a successful Christian life? Why do some Christians accomplish much while others struggle to make progress? If you could dissect the life of a successful child of God what you'd find might surprise you, and it just might change you.

What does a Christian look like. Many think a Christian has got it all together, but the most effective Christians are broken. Our weaknesses and trials make us more real, more usable and more compassionate.
Thursday, June 27, 2013
Everyone wants to be somebody. Everyone wants to do something great. Everyone has also made mistakes and been hurt. We all have broken places in our lives and it's those places that we think restrict us, but God wants to use your hurts and failures as your ministry. Don't think you can do it? Yes, you can!
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
There is a spiritual thirst in all of us. Everyone needs the living water that only Jesus can give, but there are obstacles in the way. There are things that stand between you and Jesus; obstacles that can only be overcome when you become desperate enough to do whatever it takes to reach Jesus.

Have you ever come up short? Maybe, short on money or short on time or shot on strength. David said, "My cup is overflowing". So, how can we go from the glass half empty to the glass overflowing? What do we do when there's just not enough?

God created the Heavens and the Earth with His words. His world was created by His words. Words do matter. What other people say about us can affect us, but it's what we say about ourselves that creates the world we live in.

How much did the cross of Christ weigh. Some estimate 100-300 lbs. But the true weight of the cross is not measured in pounds but in guilt, sorrow, and pain. The true weight of the cross is measured by our sins. It was on the cross that Jesus took the burden of our sins in death, and it was at His tomb that Jesus arose victorious over it all.

Jesus wants to make us fishers of men. He has called us to launch out into the deep and win souls for His Kingdom, but we must be careful to leave the cleaning to Him. Our job is to catch them. His job is to clean them up.
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Jesus told Peter to cast off from the shore and head out into the deep to fish. Peter obeyed and caught so many fish he couldn't contain them all. Jesus is calling the church to leave the safety of the sanctuary and go out into the deep; to cast our nets out in the world.
Monday, March 11, 2013
There is an ocean of people out there who need Jesus. God wants to turn you into an expert at catching those people for His Kingdom. Do you have the courage to step onto His boat?
Tuesday, March 5, 2013
God called himself, "I Am". He is the all knowing, all powerful and all present God. He is bigger than we can comprehend, and yet through Jesus we can be in a personal, first name basis, life-changing relationship with Him.
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
God has amazing things for you but you can't receive them from the safety of the boat. If you want an extraordinary and daring Christian experience then you have to take a step of faith out into the unknown - the place where only God can support you - out on the water.

So, you've got problems. Bring it on -- God can handle you. So, you've got a past. Bring it on -- God can handle you. So, you don't have much to offer. Bring it on -- God can handle you. If you're far from perfect with a colorful past and a load of problems, you are exactly who God wants to use.

God was once far from us. It was once impossible to even begin to understand Him. He was out of our reach until Jesus came to Earth in the form of man. Jesus came to be near us, and not just near us, but to be one of us so that He could save us. Jesus came to get down into the deepest, dirtiest places of our lives so that He could lift us up out of sin and give us new life.
Wednesday, February 6, 2013
God has a plan for your life. He has specific plans for your life that don't always line up with your own plans. So, as a Christian you must make a decision - are you going to live according to your will or God's will? There is a great life ahead of you if you are willing to say no to yourself and yes to God

You don't have to live in the grip of sin. Sin is the result of a life lived in the flesh and not the Spirit. In the flesh, one is tempted and led away by their own desires until they fall into sin and the end result of sin is death. The Spirit led man faces the same temptations but he is victorious over sin because of the work that Jesus did for us and the work that the Holy Spirit does in us.

Life in the flesh is often led by emotions. There’s nothing wrong with having emotions, all of us do, but when you let your emotions rule your life you find yourself living out the desires of the flesh. Life in the Holy Spirit is your spirit man being led by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit reminds us of the word, directs us daily and empowers us to live according to the will of the Spirit. Get off the roller coaster of emotional living and live your life in the power and wisdom of the Spirit

There is a war going on inside of you. There is a battle for your attention, your time and your heart. The flesh is trying to convince you to live for your self The Spirit man is trying to convince you to embrace God's plans for your life. Your only hope for success is to crucify the flesh and wholeheartedly follow the Holy Spirit.

God has a plan for you. He has a destination in mind. Jesus is calling us to get in His boat and follow Him wherever He leads. The journey will have challenges and will not be easy, but if we keep our faith in Him we will arrive at our divine destination.
