Who or What are You Seeking

By Yolanda K. Edwards

Acts 17:26-27 – ““The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’”

You’ve heard the phrase “looking for love in all the wrong places”.  I find that this saying is true.  Sometimes we are so consumed in our daily lives and circumstances that material things become our focus.  We begin to depend on people and stuff (cars, houses, clothes, money, etc.) to make us happy and to fill the voids in our lives, so we begin to idolize these things unknowingly.

This passage confirms that God is Alpha and Omega, He is the author and finisher of all things.  Take a moment to reflect on the circumstances that have moved you to a place to allow things and people in your life to become your god. Now take a moment to turn those situations over to God and trust that in Him, all things are possible.  Though the situation may look bleak to you, remember that He is with you always carrying you through and that it in Him you will find your resolve.  He is the answer to all your needs and desires.  Without Him, you have nothing and you are nothing.

Prayer starter: My Father who are in heaven, hollowed be thy name, your will be done in my life, not my will. Please forgive me for allowing material things and people to take your place as gods in my life. I surrender all that I am and every circumstance in my life to you.  I recognize that you are Alpha and Omega and that there is no one or nothing higher than you…

Feed Your Faith

By Pastor Brenda Gray

James 1:6-7   But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

There are two kinds of people. One kind of person looks at a problem and says, “It can’t be done”. The other kind of person looks at the opportunity and says, “If it could be done how would we do it?  “FEED YOUR FAITH AND DOUBT WILL STARVE TO DEATH”

People criticized Peter for trying walk on water, then sinking, but at least he exercised his faith and got out of the boat. 

Prayer Starter: Father in the name of Jesus please forgive me for my unbelief. Please teach me your ways because I want to talk like you and I want to be like you God, in Jesus name Amen!

Look Beyond Man to See God

By Yolanda K. Edwards

Look Beyond Man to See God by Yolanda K. Edwards

I Samuel 23:1-3 – When David was told, “Look, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah and are looting the threshing floors,” he inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I go and attack these Philistines?” The Lord answered him, “Go, attack the Philistines and save Keilah.” But David’s men said to him, “Here in Judah we are afraid. How much more, then, if we go to Keilah against the Philistine forces!” (read the entire chapter at your leisure)

In I Samuel 23, King Saul was still searching for David so he could kill him.  At one point in the story, David was led by the Lord to go and save the town of Kailah from the Philistines.  However, when he informed his men that they were going, they told him that they were afraid; even though they knew the Lord was with David and had already experienced several victories in battle.  I believe they got to a point where they could not see God, pass the man.  They were afraid because David was just a man and he definitely couldn’t defeat the Philistines on his own human merit and strength.  His men forgot that as humans and children of God, when we are weak, we are made strong through Him. (But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9)

Question: How many times has your focus been on what man can do to you and for you, not what God can do.  It is important to remember that if we abide in Him and His Word abides in us, we can have whatever we ask in His name (John 15:7) as long as it’s in His will for us.  You do realize that He can do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).  We must also remember that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).

Always consult God and depend solely on Him, for it is He who uses man to Bless others.  Without God, man can do nothing.

Prayer starter…Here I am Lord, leaning and depending on you to…I know through you, I can do all things because you strengthen me. I know that your power is made strong in my weakness and with that comes the strength to move forward in…

Success

by Pastor Brenda Gray

 Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion. Speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family and you will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

 Prayer Starter: Father in the name of Jesus, your word says that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Therefore, I will call those things that are not as though they were until they manifest. I see myself successful…
