Good day everyone. Already today I had one of those “oh my” moments. I was beginning to put thought to a situation that’s going on in my life right now when I caught myself almost thinking that the situation looked to be impossible. It is for me but not for the God that I serve. As children of God we must stop our “stinkin” “thinkin” and remember the lessons taught in the word.

Today’s Prayer

Good morning, Father! Thank you for this day. Thank you for meeting our needs. I come to You today on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ, asking that You will increase our faith. I want our faith to be as “the grain of mustard seed that can move mountains” and as constant as Your love for us. Please move in our lives and strengthen our spirits through Your Holy Spirit. May we be faithful witnesses for You Lord. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Thinking outside the Box

“But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do” (John 6:6).

This is a familiar story from the bible that teaches some very important lessons. Jesus and the disciples had just crossed the Sea of Galilee and multitudes followed Him because of the miracles they saw Him do. He was about to speak to them when Jesus realized it was dinner time and the people would be hungry. There were more than 5,000 people who needed to be fed. Jesus already knew what He was going to do in this situation. However, He was testing the disciples to see if they would think beyond themselves to find a God-solution to the problem. They failed the test just as you and I do at one time or another. The disciples looked in their pocketbooks and realized they did not have adequate resources to purchase enough food for the crowd. It is when we come to the end of our resources that God comes in with His resources.

When I first started thinking of my present circumstances, I thought about how I have over committed my time and it is becoming uncomfortable because I feel like I’m letting people down because I can’t possibly meet all of these commitments. What I can do is ask God to send someone or something in my place in order to meet the needs of everyone involved in these situations and continue on. At times I have such a giving spirit I forget how to say no. The Lord is working on me in this area and teaching me to use all the resources at my disposal (including Him).

When a problem arises in your work life do you think only the logical thought? Perhaps God has created this problem as an opportunity to reveal His glory in the situation. Next time, go outside the box and see the glory of God manifested in your problem!

Quote of the Day

Jesus appears to be holding out his hand to us even as he calls us. He tells us he will provide a bridge over the chasm if we will abide in him. We hear his words, but such language is strange to us, sounding like the dialects of many who have used us or consumed us and then left us along the highway, exposed and alone. We pull back. Many of us return to Vanity Fair and mortgage our heart to purchase more of what is religiously or materially familiar. A few of us arouse our spirit and take a step toward the chasm.

    We as Christians, especially need to be delivered from “The Yes People” when it comes to saying YES to every request✝️ I have struggled with this for many years✝️ I would say yes, then at the last minute cancel, doing something that displeased My God✝️ I know the answer I should give, which would be “I will pray about it, and get back with you, or if I know I probably won’t go, just say no,and thank them for asking me✝️ I dislike this in me and ask for prayer for Deliverance, as I am asking for “Complete Deliverance” and Restoration✝️

    I always end up being taken advantage of because I don’t like confrontations. The situation now is a housekeeper who doesn’t finish what needs to be done and leaves early and has started coming late. I’ve prayed about this but still don’t know how to manage this problem.

      Just speak to the person about he situation and if it doesn’t get better, get another person to replace them.
