Let's Get Things In Order Using Our Skills, Knowledge And Abilities in 2012

I was reading the Word to see what scriptures there were pertaining to the word "order" since 2012 is fast approaching us and the number 12 represents order.

So I ran across Exodus 36:6-7 which reads "Then Moses gave an order and they sent this word throughout the camp: "No man or woman is to make anything else as an offering for the sanctuary." And so the people were restrained from bringing more, because what they already had was more than enough to do all the work. NIV

I began to read the previous scriptures and saw that Moses was to gather all the people who were skilled and crafted in order to build the sanctuary. These men were experts at what they did and they also were able to teach others how to become experts as well.

Those who did not have the skill or craft brought offerings to help with this order. So everybody played a role which means there was unity. The Bible says that where there is unity, the Lord commands His blessings. Now do you see why Moses gave the order for them to not bring anything else as an offering? They did the natural and God did the supernatural.

I believe that this is what we are to be doing now to establish God's kingdom here on earth. God has already given us the skills, knowledge and abilities to do his good and perfect will.

In conclusion, let's get things in order in our personal lives, in our homes and in our church using our skills, knowledge and abilities in order for us to have more than enough of God's blessings, favor and grace.

Are you True To HIS Task?

As I read Luke 10:1-9 tonight, I begin to reflect on what our task is now that Christ has left us here on earth to continue the work that He set out to do.

What is it that Christ came to do? He came to destroy the works of the devil according to I John 3:8. The works of the devil is to steal, kill and destroy. Do you see the works of the devil at work in your life or someone you know life? If so, then you have a task to do. Jesus came to do minister grace, love, peace and a life of abundance to those who serve Him. With this in mind, we are to share the love of God with those who the devil has attacked to the point that they are left lifeless.

Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. As we encounter the lifeless, they are to gain life because of the life of Christ within us. Peace should over shadow their confused mindset as we minister to their trying situation. They will be empowered by the Holy Ghost to want to live again and experience the abundant life that is available to them through Jesus Christ.

In conclusion, as you encounter others who are going through life without hope, defeated and lifeless, be mindful of the task that we have been given for the harvest truly is great but the laborers are few. I pray that the Lord will send forth laborers into His harvest.

Heal Me Oh Lord!

Do you or someone you know need healing? Guess What? Whatever sickness or disease you have can be healed. The first step in this process is that you have to believe to receive your healing. This is true because James 2:17 says "even so faith if it hath not works is dead being alone."

The second step is doing what it takes to increase your faith. How do you increase your faith? Romans 10:17 says "so then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God." God's word is two things: it is the written word and it is the living word. We have God's faith when His living word is living in us! When we receive God's word we are not receiving words of man but we are receiving thoughts of God.

In conclusion, as you pursue your healing, know that with the spoken word, not only comes the word but the faith also to believe it. We can take our believing power, the faith that comes with the promise and with the spoken word and we can put it as a key into the door to healing. When we do, we unlock within the word, the power it has in itself to bring about the fulfillment of what it has promised - healing.

What Will You Harvest In The Last Quarter of 2011?

I read an article today that talked about the corn crop and how some farmers are nervous because of the exceptionally hot weather. The other reason this is a concern is because next month is the beginning of harvest time.

Just as these farmers are nervous about their harvest of corn, are you nervous about what God told you that you are to harvest?

No need to fear because the Word of God is near!

Genesis 8:22 says "while the earth remaineth seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease".

Have You Ever Been Labeled As "The Help"?

Let's see if you have ever carried the title of "The Help". There's a new movie out called the Help and it also has an accompanied book. I look forward to seeing the movie when it airs based on the previews. I begin to think about the title of the book and movie which is "The Help" and decided to look into the word "help".

According to Merriam Webster Dictionary the definition of help is "to give assistance or support, to further the advancement of, to change for the better. So does this describe you? How often do you hear someone say to you "you're so helpful".

As children of the most high God, we are to be immitator of Christ by helping each other as we intercede for each other through prayer. During this time of famine, wars, rumors of wars and earthquakes, prayer should be made on behalf of this world and everybody in it. We must put our hope and trust in Christ. As we go to God in prayer as the only help we know, it will increase our faith and help us to trust God even more.

In conclusion, think about something and/or someone you can help by praying. As you put others before your own problems and situations, your problems and situations will supernaturally work out for your good.

If you are one who like to kneel when you pray, a kneeling prayer pillow will help you do it in comfort.

Read, Pray, Know, Then Go!

What Does Ash Wednesday Mean To You?

I grew up in New Orleans, LA. and never knew what the meaning of Ash Wednesday was. So since I heard someone say that today was Ash Wednesday, I decided to research the concept.

I found out that Catholics place the ashes of palm trees from last year and place them on their forehead as a cross. This is symbolic of the fact that we are sinners and in need of a saviour. It also is a time of giving up something for 40 days leading up to Easter. This part I knew about which is called Lent.

I guess the problem that I had once I found out about Lent a few years ago is that the day before Ash Wednesday which is Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras Day is a day for catholic to wild out and do everything their hearts desire since they will be giving up these things for the next 40 days. This really bothered me. Once I found out this, I have not been to Mardi Gras.

I don't know if my mom or other families knew about this and just decided that they were going to participate in Mardi Gras since it was something they had been doing all their lives or not. But I chose not to keep up that tradition since in my eyes, it does not bring glory to God.

Let me know your thoughts on Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday and Lent.
