I Love the Lord! Praise God. Woke With a New Song in My Heart. Thank you Jesus!

wpid-img_20141027_112258.jpgWoke with a new song in my heart. “O how I love Jesus, Oh how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus. Because He first loved me.” Thank you Jesus!

Every day I wake up is God saying, “I’m not through with you yet.” And every day the devil see my feet hit the floor, it makes him furious. Oh God she’s up!

Yep! I’m up. I’m wearing the full armor of God. Suited for battle. I’m armed and dangerous. Ready to fight the battle I know is coming. Get thee behind me, Satan! “But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men” (Matthew 16:23).

Sometimes you have to will yourself from the very things that will distract you from hearing from God. Stay focused. Keep your mind stayed on Jesus.

We can become easily frustrated when things don’t turn out as we expect. Or we can praise God for protecting us, in spite of the rejection. God said, everything is going to be alright. I know. When I prayed for you, he told me so. He said tell them, it is so because God said so. No matter what happens today, don’t let anyone steal your joy. God gave it to you, not them. Do not be discouraged. Be of good courage.

God I thank you for who I am and who I used to be, because had it not been for who I was, I wouldn’t be who I am today to walk in my destiny. Thank you Jesus!

People may never understand why I talk about God so much. Jesus thought enough of me when he died on cross. I can’t help it. I love him!

John 17:24-26 “Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Stay focused. God has given you the power and authority to trample on snakes and scorpions!

wpid-img_20140405_101554.jpgWhen we have godly wisdom, wise counsel from loved ones will make a difference. And will lead us to make wise decisions even when we aren’t aware of the reason.

I had an epiphany the other day when talking to my mother and couldn’t help but share my thoughts, along with her words of wisdom that touched my heart.

My mom told me a story about a man who found a snake ill in front his home. He took him in and cared for him and nursed him back to health. Once the snake was well and back to his old self, he turned around and bit the man. The man asked him, “Why did you bite me after all I did for you?” The snake answered, “You knew who I was before you helped me.” End of story.

When people show you who they are, believe them. No matter how much you may help them, you can’t change them. Be careful of the people you let in your inner circle and ones you associate with. Everybody is not your friend. Be conscious of and know the difference between acquaintances and true friends. Use godly wisdom and discernment. God will show you who they are. There is a ram in the bush (Genesis 22:13). It is the Lord your God who goes before you. He is with you. He will not forsake you.

Snakes in the grass will slither and try to sneak up on you only to hurt you or frustrate your purpose to keep it from being fulfilled. Don’t try to handle it yourself. Do as Paul did when the snake bit him. He did not suffer any ill effects (Acts 28:3-5). He remained faithful in his service to God and allowed Him to intervene. God protected him. Believe. Fully trust in Him.

Be prepared when the snake comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Arm yourself with prayer. We have power over evil spirits. Put on the full armor of God. Don’t be afraid of snakes in the grass. Fight the enemy with the word. God is sovereign. Take him at his word. He’s faithful. Let him intervene. He can and will protect you from any and everything.

One of the greatest challenges when your faith is tested will be who you choose to trust. The enemy will persuade you. Resist. God got you!

Do your best to help others. Stay focused. God has given you the power and authority to trample on snakes and scorpions. God’s wonder works in and through you. Snakes can be stopped in their tracks too. Remember, God has all power. Trust in Him no matter what the enemy tries to do to you. You will defeat the enemy. God will see for you.

Be blessed! -JD

Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” (NIV)

There may be some giants standing between you and God’s purpose for your life. Stand! There’s a purpose for your life. You’re spiritually equipped with the armor of God.

Count It All Joy!

It’s a good day!
God is in the blessing business every day.
These words come straight from my heart.
I’m excited. And I’m led to say.
God has a supernatural blessing coming your way.

There’s nothing the enemy can do.
No matter what he thinks he’s stolen from you.
Whatever you have lost, God will restore back to you.

God’s Word is evidence. He promised. He is faithful.
God will do just as he says he will do. He’s gracious.
Wear the full armor of God. Take up the cross.
God will restore all that you’ve lost.

Life may not be what you want it to be.
But where you are now is right where God needs you to be.
Let God use you that his purpose may be fulfilled.
Even though you may have gone through what seemed rough the past few years.

When troubled and pressed on every side.
Don’t look to the left or to the right.
Look to God from whence cometh your help.
God will make every wrong right.
He will make every failure success.
God loves you. You’re blessed.

You may have had trials.
Suffered for a little while and made some mistakes.
God can still use you.
He’s God of all grace.

When God allows something to happen that you didn’t want to happen.
He’s trying to remove the thing in life you think is bigger than Him.
And he won’t let that happen.
Rejoice! God is love.
You’re a beacon of light sent from heaven above.

The closer you are to God, the closer you are to your blessing.
There’s a lesson to be learned in every trial and testing.
Cling to your faith, hope, desires, and prayers.
Know that God will never leave you. He’s always there.

You have peace with God.
You’re reconciled with him.
There is no more hostility between you and him.
There is nothing blocking your relationship with him.

Hope for today no matter the strife.
Today is not yesterday. You’ve been given brand new life.
You’re on your way back.
Not because of you, but because God’s got your back.
He will never fail you.

It’s a new day.
God is in the blessing business every day.
Speak deliverance, increase, healing on your health, in relationships, and your finances.
Declare and decree supernatural power of God’s blessing.

Just hold on.
A breakthrough is coming your way!
Get ready for your miracle. It’s on the way.

God said it. I believe it. That settles it.
God’s got a blessing with your name on it.

Count it all joy!

Be blessed! –JD

James 1:2-5 “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
