The Four Blessed Looks

Psalm 121
New Living Translation

Psalm 121
A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.
1 I look up to the mountains—
does my help come from there?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth!
3 He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
4 Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.

5 The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
6 The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon at night.

7 The Lord keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life.
8 The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever.

1.Look back and thank God.
2.Look forward and trust God.
3.Look around and serve God.
4.Look within and find God!"

"I asked God, 'How do I get the best out of life?' God said, 'Face
your past without regrets. Handle your present with confidence. And
prepare for the future without fear!'"

To the point!!!

Acts 16:25-26
New International Version

25About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose.


God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor.

Don't Get Too Attached

2 Corinthians 4:18
Holman Christian Standard Bible

18 So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen; for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

When I describe it, you'll be able to visualize it. I'm certainly not the first person who has observed it. But there is a lesson in it we both may have overlooked.

There are some children on a beach. They're playing at the edge of the water. Giggling. Building sandcastles. They seem so intent on the project. You get amused at how meticulous and careful they are with crumbly corners and tiny turrets. The looks on their faces as they screw their mouths around and stick out their tongues in earnest concentration are priceless.

Then a big wave starts to close in! But the kids don't panic. They do the strangest thing. They jump to their feet, scream with excitement, and watch the waves wash away their creations. There is no hysteria. No sadness. No bitterness. Even little children know the fate that awaits sandcastles. So they are neither shocked nor angry when the tide comes in.

You and I should be so wise. The stuff of this world is about as permanent as sandcastles on a beach. Yet we get so caught up in it, defensive over it, and depressed over the loss of it. But God didn't create you for this world. Your destiny is not bound up in cash and bonds, land and houses, fame and monuments. So living to be a hundred years old is far less important than living well - Even if for a relatively short time. Beautifying your body is not nearly as urgent as living with a pure heart before God.

Children know that their castles in the sand are brief joys destined to be taken away by an incoming tide. So they don't fret as the waves approach. They typically watch their creations get swept away without shedding tears.

Everything about this life is so transient. The incoming wave of our mortality is going to sweep it all away. Like sandcastles at the edge of the ocean, nothing we do for the sake of this world can survive. Only what you do here for eternity will last. Only the treasures you send ahead will escape corruption.

What would the loss of your job or business do to you? What if your house were to go up in smoke tonight? What if a pain sent you to the doctor and led to the discovery that you have only a few weeks to live? These things really do happen to people, you know. We are all vulnerable. We are all quite mortal. Everything about our existence here is about as enduring as sandcastles.

Life is God's gift. Revel in every good thing. Enjoy your castles in the sand. Just be careful not to let yourself get unduly attached to any of them.

Coming Full Circle

Colossians 2:10
New King James Version

10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

As the year of 2008 approaches, watch as God brings everything full circle. He is tying up loose ends. He is working hard to complete any unfinished business. 2007 is a year of completion and rest. Everything that you went through good and bad was to make you complete in Christ. 2008 is a year of new beginnings. Rejoice in this season of thanksgiving and celebration of Jesus.

No matter what comes your way in the coming weeks, it is only part of the process. The process of your completion is almost over. There is nothing that will happen that God does not know about and that He is not the head of. All principalities and powers are subject to God. If you think back to the beginning of the year, and look at what is going on now; you have come full circle.

Give Thanks

2 Corinthians 9:15
Amplified Bible

15Now thanks be to God for His Gift, [precious] beyond telling [His indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift]!

Is God Listening?

Isaiah 59:1-2 KJV
1 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Do you sometimes feel that God isn't listening? Do you feel frustrated because you are still struggling with the same old pain, the same old trouble, the same old problem?

Search your heart for the answer as to why God seems to not hear your cries. Many times we can find the answer in this passage of scripture. It is sin. It begins with disobedience, turns into not trusting Him, then doubt, fear and unbelief join the sin party and before you know it you are so far from the perfect plan God has for your life you question whether He can hear you at all.

What's the solution? Repent! Simply ask God for forgiveness. If you aren't sure where and what the sin is, ask the Holy Spirit to come and reveal it to you and repent. Then the flood gates of God's blessings are free to move into your life and help you to overcome anything the devil has put in your path.

God Bless

You Have Authority

These are words that should never come out of the mouth of a believer in God, because you shouldn't be under your circumstance your circumstance should be under you...

And the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath; if thou hearken to the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command unto you this day, to observe and to do them.

Deuteronomy 28:13

He Will Complete It

Philippians 1:6
New International Version

6being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Not let circumstances dictate your outcome. God started it and He will complete it. He cannot lie. He cannot fail. If He promised it, He will perform it. God sits outside of time. His timing is sure. If it hasn't happened yet, it isn't complete. God is still working behind the scenes. Don't quit. Don't give up.

The enemy has planted seeds of worry, doubt, fear, and anxiety. Don't let them grow. His ways are not your ways. His word does not comeback void. God will complete it.

God Bless

It's What Your Carrying

John 7:38
King James Version

38He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

If it seems as if all hell is breaking out in your life, let me put you on notice. It's not you. The devil is not after you, but he is after what is in your belly. He wants that anointing, that ministry, that business, that seed that river of living water. God has downloaded you with greatness. The devil wants to stop the flow of your river. Don't you dare let him. You have entered a new level of warfare. It's time to get past fighting the deal. Mature Christians, even baby Christians can fight the devil. It is time to annihilate the devil and every plot and plan he has for you.

Don't feel like God has forgotten you or is punishing you for something you did or didn't do. He has put His living water in you. The devil is trying to stop the flow. But God won't let him. God is allowing you to be strengthened and molded. Don't start ego tripping, thinking that you are so great. God put His greatness in you. The devil is after what you are carrying.

God Bless

Step in the Water

John 5:4
King James Version

4For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

The water has been troubled, all you have to do is step in. Once you step in the water you will be made whole. This is your set time of deliverance. If you want to be healed step in the water. It is time to let go of that "stuff" that is holding you back. It is time to go higher and deeper in God.

Jesus is the living water. If you want to be delivered from sickness, step i the water. If you want to be free from low self esteem, oppression, and depression... step in the water. If you want to be free from the " that's impossible" syndrome...step in the water. If someone broke your heart and you need a healing...step in the water. If the enemy is holding up your blessing...step in the water.

God Bless

In the Presence of Your Enemies

Psalm 23:5
New Living Translation

5 You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.

God has prepared a feast for you. You are about to dine in the presence of your enemies. God is about to show out for you. He is laying out blessings that you won't even have room enough to receive. They said you wouldn't make it. They said it was impossible. You have been bold enough to believe what God said. Now, you are about to see the manifestation of what He promised.

What is a feast? any rich or abundant meal,a periodical celebration or time of celebration commemorating an event, person, etc.

Get your fork and knife. Tie a napkin around your neck and dig in.

God Bless

Walking in the F.O.G.

Apostle H. D. Wilson

Psalm 102:13
King James Version

13Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

I Decree Today, Tomorrow and for the Rest of My Life

I'm walking in the F.O.G. (Favor Of God)

I walk in the FOG in my Health, I walk in the F.O.G. in my Finances, I walk in the F.O.G. on my Job, I walk in the F.O.G. in my Business, I walk in the F.O.G. in my Marriage, I walk in the F.O.G. in my Ministry, I walk in the F.O.G. with my Children, I walk in the F.O.G. in Debt Elimination, I walk in the F.O.G. with my Credit & Creditors, I walk in the F.O.G. with my Loans & Applications, I walk in the F.O.G. with my Job Interviews, I walk in the F.O.G. with my Tuition For College, I walk in the F.O.G. with my Managers & Supervisors, I walk in the F.O.G. with my New Projects.

Today and everyday I will WALK in the F.O.G.. Talk in the F.O.G. and operate in the F.O.G.

The Favor on my life changes for me rules, regulations and policies. It surrounds me and covers those who are close to me. It is in every area of my life for the rest of my life.

This day, I expect Favor, I live Favor, I anticipate Favor.

The time of my Favor is NOW!

The Blood


One night in a church service a young woman felt the tug of God at her heart. She responded to God's call and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. The young woman had a very rough past, involving alcohol, drugs, and prostitution. But, the change in her was evident. As time went on she became a faithful member of the church.

She eventually became involved in the ministry, teaching young children. It was not very long until this faithful young woman had caught the eye and heart of the pastor's son. The relationship grew and they began to make wedding plans.

This is when the problems began. You see, about one half of the church did not think that a woman with a past such as hers was suitable for a pastor's son. The church began to argue and fight about the matter. So they decided to have a meeting.

As the people made their arguments and tensions increased, the meeting was getting completely out of hand. The young woman became very upset about all the things being brought up about her past. As she began to cry the pastor's son stood to speak. He could not bear the pain it was causing his wife to be.

He began to speak and his statement was this: "My fiancĂ©e’s past is not what is on trial here. What you are questioning is the ability of the blood of Jesus to wash away sin. Today you have put the blood of Jesus on trial. So, does it wash away sin or not?"

The whole church began to weep as they realized that they had been slandering the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past and use it as a weapon against our brothers and sisters.

Forgiveness is a very foundational part of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. If the blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completely then it cannot cleanse us completely. If that is the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble. What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! End of case!!!!

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved." Psalm 55:23

This prayer is powerful and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards, let's continue to pray for one another. Here is the prayer:

"Father, I ask you to bless my friends, relatives and email buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask you to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through your grace.

In Jesus' precious name.


...the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27

Everyone Can't Sit in Your Front Row


Philippians 3:8
New Life Version

8 Even more than that, I think of everything as worth nothing. It is so much better to know Christ Jesus my Lord. I have lost everything for Him. And I think of these things as worth nothing so that I can have Christ.

Life is a Theatre - Invite your audience carefully.

Not everyone is spiritual or emotionally healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that are best loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, pointless relationships, friendships, and fellowships!

Consider your current relationships.

Pay attention to who lifts and who leans? Who encourages and who discourages? Who is on a path of growth and who is going down fast? When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Who always has drama?

The more you seek God and godly thing, the more you seek quality; the more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God, the more you seek things honorable; the more you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.

You cannot change the people around you, but you c an change the people you are around! Ask God for wisdom and discernment and use these gifts to choose the people who sit in the front row of your life.

Let Your Haters Be Your Motivators
(but let them do it from afar)

When My Heart is Overwhelmed

Psalm 61:2
Amplified Bible

2From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [yes, a rock that is too high for me].

Murphy's law says anything that could go wrong will. Every feel like that? What do you do? It seems like after you get through that, here comes this. Has your heart ever been so broken that you did not know what to do? God says when your heart is overwhelmed, He will lead you to the rock that is higher than you. Who is the rock? He is. What is the rock that is higher than you? He will bring you up into heavenly places with Him. As you begin to worship Him, He will bring you into that secret place where it is just you and Him.

God allows circumstances in life to change so that He can bring you into an dimension, a deeper level, a higher place in God. When people turn their back on you, He will lead you to the rock. When your bills outnumber your dollars, He will lead you to that rock. Go into that place in God. Sit on His lap, let Him wipe away your tears, frustrations, and disappointments.

God Bless
