An Upper Room Experience

I was thinking about the disciples who were waiting in the upper room for the promise of the Comforter. And when the Holy Spirit came, they were all filled, anointed, empowered to speak with boldness. What an experience!

Thinking about that day encourages me to praise God every chance I have. Because I’ve learned that when I get involved in praising God, I have an Upper Room Experience. The Holy Spirit comes in and I feel the Lord inhabiting my praise. He pours down blessings upon me when I praise. I feel equipped, strong enough to do what I’ve been commissioned to do.

The disciples anointed and filled with the Holy Spirit’s power went out and preached the gospel to everyone they came into contact with. After having an encounter like that, you want to give God what is due his name. I want to go out and serve Him. I want to tell all those that I meet about this awesome God I serve.

Seek to have an Upper Room Experience. Allow the Lord to use you for his glory as you go out and do his will.

NEVER FORSAKEN

We’ve been promised by the Lord that we’ll never be forsaken. Jesus told his disciples that he would have to leave so the comforter could come. Our comforter, the Hoy Ghost, dwells within us. He’s always with us, leading us and guiding us.

I thank Jesus for this promise because he endured being forsaken for you and me. Jesus knew we couldn’t bare it, so He went in our place. God turned away from Jesus, and He cried out to the Father, “why have you forsaken me”. Going thru this would have shook us to the core.

Thank you Father for never forsaking me, in Jesus name amen.

Lighted Path

Psalms 119:105 says, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. The Bible shows us the lighted path. If the pathway is in darkness, that’s not the path we should take.

I am lost without God’s word. His word guides me and shows me how to avoid falling into traps. His word teaches me how to walk and shows me just where to go.

Dear Lord I thank you for lighting the path for us to follow. My prayer is that you open our eyes to clearly see the way we are to go. Remove fear from the hearts of your people so they trust you alone and not lean into their own understanding. Place such a hunger and a thirst for your word on the inside of us like never before. Keep our feet from the path of darkness. In Jesus name, amen.

WHERE THERE’S A WILL, THERE’S A WAY

Where there’s a will there’s a way. I often think about that cliché which reminds me to look at every circumstance for the possible solutions to get out of it. On a spiritual level, I think about the will being God’s will. When we have God’s will, God always makes a way to complete it.

God’s will is the plan for our lives. In God’s will there’s an expected end, because it’s His will, his assignment, his task, his command, and his commission.

When he gives us his will he will also always provide for us a way to complete the task, a way to get the assignment done with an expected finish line.

Be encouraged and know where there’s God’s Will, there’s a Way!

Yes

What does it mean to say yes? Yes means that you’re giving an affirmative answer or decision. Yes means that you come into an agreement. We need to ask ourselves what do we say yes to when we said yes to the Lord. When you say yes to God’s will that means you’re coming into agreement with him. When you say yes to God’s will that means you have a made up my mind to serve him no matter what. When you say yes to God’s will, that means you are obeying his command.
Yes is a three letter word, it’s a small word. And although it’s a small word it has such a huge impact on each and everyone of our lives. Yes is the biggest word of action in response to the call God has placed upon your life. Today and everyday, I say Yes.

Prioritize

When we get married, have kids, a job, your priorities seem to get jumbled together. Everything and everyone is top priority. When it comes to God, everything must get in line behind him. He clearly tells us in his word that if we seek first his kingdom then all these things shall be added unto you, Matthew 6:33. So there is a blessing that follows when we prioritize our lives placing God as number 1.
Prioritize doesn’t mean you will miss out on life. It only means that you will get your life in order according the word of God. Be encouraged. Allow God to pick and choose what you do. You’ll win in the end because God knows what he has planned for you.

SING THE SONG OF MOSES

Sing the song of Moses when you’ve been delivered and set free. Sing the song of Moses because you’ve got the victory. Sing the song of Moses even when your going thru, knowing our Lord and savior will never forsake you.

The song of Moses was sung by the Israelites to celebrate their great deliverance from Egypt. We read in Revelation 15:3, that the saints will also sing the song of Moses in celebration of their victory over the devil.

When you want to start feeling down remind yourself that the battle’s already won. Begin to sing the song of Moses, this will make the enemy cringe. He knows his fate and we know our Lord is coming soon.

Be encouraged!

THE WAITING ROOM IS FULL

God showed me an analogy the other day about the saints being doctors. The Lord uses us as doctors to do his will. We’re doctors with varying gifts which are the specialties we operate in.

Many are sick and dying daily oftentimes waiting for the doctor to help them. There are those who don’t want to see a doctor, but would rather walk around in denial telling themselves they’re not sick. Being doctors we can’t sit around talking amongst ourselves. The waiting rooms are full with those who are dependent on us.

Grab a chart, call out a name, and see how you can help someone.

LOST WITHOUT THE WORD

Psalms 119:105 – the word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. God’s word lights the path. Without the word, I’m lost. I find it hard to make it thru these days without reading the word. It’s as though I’m blind trying to feel my way.

His word is the light and with the light I’m able to see exactly where I’m going. It’s like a GPS system I need to guide me and tell me where I’m going. Without the GPS I’m lost.

God’s word lights the path, it keeps us from falling and stumbling around this world of darkness.

DON’T FAINT

The Bible tells us in Galatians 6:9 – let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we faint not.

The word of God is telling us today that we cannot faint, we cannot throw in the towel, or give up when we’re doing good; especially when we’re doing the good work for the Lord.

Our job here on this earth is to be about our Father’s business doing Kingdom building, and we cannot reap that harvest or reap the blessings the Lord has for us if we fall down before we make it to the other side.

So my friends, be encouraged today. Don’t give up, don’t give in, don’t faint, make it through to the other side because you will reap a harvest when you do.
