Acts Service

Great time lastnight with everyone and the Holy Ghost! I serve an awesome church, filled with great people. Just loved coming together with you all and getting into the throne room with the Lord and letting the Holy Spirit just work in us and through us. If you missed it, you missed it. Great prayers, great worship, great words, great Holy Spirit time.

Living or Surviving?

If you are not living in Christ, you are just surviving. You have to find that place of life in Him! Paul said in Gal. 2: 20 that it was no longer Paul who lived, but Christ living in him. Many believers are still "surviving" day by day in the same hurts, pains, failures, inadequacies, and sin that had them trapped and bound before they got save. How do you switch from surviving to living? By choosing to let Christ "live" in you. It's no longer you anymore trying to become what the Word says you are... You "ARE" what the word says you are! Christ has redeemed you, He has set you free, you are now ALIVE! Put off the old man and put on Christ today, you look so much better in Christ.

But God...

What a phrase to find, "But God..." It simply means that when there seems to be no way out, no answer, no hope, God in all His glory and power and mercy and grace shows up! God is never late, He is never withholding from you, He is always on time, and always ready to bring you into victory.
God has already secured your victory in life. You aren't the loser trying to become the winner! NO, NO, NO! You are the winner who is always triumphant in Christ Jesus who is resisting defeat. There is no "comeback for the devil. He is already defeated, he has already lost, Jesus has already secured the victory.
So walk on in victory. Say, "It's mine, I have it now!" Confess the Word of God with boldness. You have what you say, so say the Word of God over your life. Say, "I am a winner! I am going over and not under! I am victorious in Christ! I walk in health, I walk in wealth, I walk in love, I walk in faith!"
How can you say these things with confidence? Because this is Christ. In Christ there is health, wealth, love, faith, victory,... the list goes on. Where are you? IN CHRIST! So if you are in Christ, then what is in Christ is in you.
Walk in victory today! It has been secured for you. If the devil comes around and says, "yeah, but..." simply say"BUT GOD..."

I Surrender

Remember what King Ahab said to King Ben-Hadad; "My lord, O king, just as you say, I and all that I have are yours." He totally surrendered to the king that day. Have you surrendered to your KING today? Have you told God "ALL," everything I am, everything with in me, everything I have is yours! Have you told your King today "you are my ALL!" What have we been saying all month? "When we give God our all, He is able to fill us up with His ALL, and His ALL is much better then my all!"
So if you haven't yet, do it right now. Surrender the rest of your day to Him, tell your Father, I give you everything today, (as a good Pastor friend of mine said, "I'm All-In!") If you'll do that right now, I know your Father in Heaven will fill you up with His ALL today so that you can " and not grow weary, you can walk and not faint."
This is the day that the Lord has made; REJOICE and be glad in it!

Crazy, Awesome, Faith!

Okay, so every year I try to re-read some of Smith Wigglesworth's books, and I started off with Smith Wigglesworth - Apostle of Faith. This book always stirs me up!!! In one part of the book he explains how once in Norway people had found out he was going to be at a certain place, and as he got there the people had filled the place plus there were cars surrounding the building with all kinds of sick people in them. The interpreter asked what they should, so Smith takes off his coat and ", into every wheeled vehicle there and prayed for people." He went on to say that there "...was great shouting in the streets as God healed them;..." Then he went inside and healed the people there. But that wasn't the end. Later they sat down to eat, the phone rang and the person on the other end said that the Town Hall was full and thousands were outside. When Smith got there two police men took a hold of him and pushed him inside where the people were packed in. As he began to minister the Lord said over and over "If you will ask Me, I will give you every soul." As he asked, Smith said the Holy Spirit rushed in and cries for mercy filled the area!
Praise God!!!! What Crazy, Awesome, Faith he had. Oh Lord that we would come to such a state of dependency upon you that we would step out in faith as this.
I don't know about you, but this is the kind of move of God I want now, and greater!!! Let's believe God for it. Let us believe that God so wants to fill us and cause us to be "...a partaker of the divine nature through His great and precious promises." S.W.

Real Men

Well tonight I just got back from my Real Mens Prayer Meeting just totally encouraged and excited. There is just something about getting together to pray, but even more so to get together with a bunch of "guys" and seek God's face.
I thank God for the guys that have started coming to these nights of prayer were having. They are without a doubt the cream of the crop! We're believing more are coming, and as we are faithful, I know God is going to work some mighty things out through the times we spend together!
