Ride on King Jesus!! NO MAN CANNOT HINDER ME!

Praise the Lord from whom ALL blessings flow! I just wanted to share a song with you that I have not heard in a mighty long time! It came to my heart out of nowhere but praise be to God….. it got me on my feet as I exclaimed that NO MAN cannot hinder me. NO MAN cannot hinder you! The Bible tells us in Romans 8:31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[c]

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

That passage of scripture is deep on my heart. Dear Reader, rise up this day and claim victory in your circumstances no matter what the natural eye sees and the ear hears. God loves us! God has the final say over your life. He is your Judge, He is your Creator. You are who He says you are! The enemy comes to attack in subtle ways like a little lamb and in voracious ones like a lion. There is no light in him. He is the prince of darkness from the pit of hell. Be it through people or circumstances, your boat may get rocked or it may even turn over. Stand your ground, put on the WHOLE Armor of God and go out with authority in the victorious name of Jesus Christ!! Do you hear me?!! God woke you up to be encouraged in Him, not to be defeated!

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— (Ephesians 6: 10-18)

I’m gonna praise the Lord with you! I don’t know what you are going through but I know who does better than anyone else. JESUS!!!!!!

RIDE ON KING JESUS!! HALLELUJAH! GLORY BE TO GOD!!

Be encouraged this day. Take your heart to the throne and place your burdens at His feet. The Lord will raise you up and strengthen you.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

O My Soul: In the midnight hour

20120123-141127.jpg
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:29, 30 NKJV)

My Lord, even through the darkest days I know that as long as I hold on to you, stand on Your word when there is nothing left to cling to, I shall rise above everything that comes up against me in attack. My strength is found within you. For when I am weak, You are at work building me up.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 NKJV)


Take courage to stand. Stand for what’s right even if you have to travel the road alone. It may not be easy at all, but at the end, your obedience to God over the negative opinions, comments, dislikes, outcasting and various sufferings of persecution that comes along with following Christ will benefit you at the end. Perhaps you may see the reaping of some benefits sooner than later. The point is to not give in; to not cower and reason with man.

Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Yes your heart may be wounded and inflicted with hurt from those you least expect but don’t let anything come as a surprise. The enemy is always at work looking for ways to distract you and tear you down.

You are a threat. Yes you sure are. You read it correctly. To whom you might ask? To Satan. Think about it. God is doing great works within you whether you see it or not. He’s building you up and preparing you for something ahead. Whatever it may be, it’s for the glory, honor and praise of the King.

If you think about it, just how much more/less is the enemy messing with those lost in darkness when he can bother those ( children of God ) who are messing up his plans? You are putting a dent in his work agenda.

Let no more sleepless nights and distracted days consume your mind. Take all things that are bothering you to Jesus. He knows the hurt. You will never overfill his to-do list. He will not be overloaded at all or get in a frenzy. If you have to go into your prayer closet every day, write him a letter, talk to him out loud just do it. And as you pray for healing, guidance and direction pray for those who inflicted pain directly or indirectly upon you. Let the Lord take vengeance into his hands. Not yours. You’ll be blessed to bless the life of others. Speaking out of anger or putting curses upon their head isn’t right. Being Christlike doesn’t strike back an eye for an eye.

So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; (James 1:19 NKJV)

Remember that the enemy can do no more to you than God will allow him. If anything, thank him for bothering you! If you stand and not be shaken by earthly ways of thinking and doing of man you will come out on top strengthened and refreshed, encouraged and ready to keep going forward in the plans God set out for you.

Bless your mind, body and spirit as you step out and STAND. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. Jesus is our Rock, our great Cornerstone. Pick up the Bible. Pray, read and apply it to your life. Believe that all will be taken care of. If no one has your back God does.

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him.”Lamentations 3:22-25 NKJV

Dear friends, I encourage you to wait on the Lord. Stepping back and standing aside spending extra time with God being still and listening to his infinite wisdom is worth far more than you will ever know. Acting and speaking in the flesh will get the best of you if you let it. Love covers a multitude. Let go of the things you cannot change, pick and choose your battles but ultimately let God be your guide.

God bless each and every one of you.

❤ Love and hope in Christ always ❤

Overcoming Spiritual Strongholds

Psalm 143:3-4 NIV
3 The enemy pursues me,
he crushes me to the ground;
he makes me dwell in the darkness
like those long dead.4 So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed.

* the enemy will continue to pursue you for he knows God has great plans for your life and the work you will do for His kingdom. You ARE a threat to the enemy and his plans. Know that. He will not stop until he succeeds. Don’t allow him to destroy your inner being, to miss out on the blessings God so greatly wants you to have an enjoy as well as share with others.

* verse 5 talks about remembering the days of old; meditating on all of God’s goodness and the work of His hands.

Though we go through and deal with  troubled times past and present, inner turmoil that haunt us, commit sin that we think is unforgivable ( except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit ) God doesn’t change his plans for our lives. He has placed a calling on the life of the chosen way before conception and birth took place. Your life was already written. Your sins were already known ahead of time. Do you really think that the Lord can’t use you? There is nothing that can separate you from the love of God. Take control of your thoughts, bind up those negative spirits and feelings such as fear, worry, stress, anger, generational curses,  self pity,  doubt, resentment, hurt, lack of faith, an unforgiving heart towards someone and turn what was meant for bad into good. Pray. Seek the Lord for wisdom, discernment, leadership, righteousness, healing and deliverance for it’s time for those shackles to come off so you can live a life of abundance and prosperity in love, freedom, peace and joy in the Lord.

Take trust in the One Who is your Rock, Strong and High Tower, Strength, your Fortress  and Stedfast Love. Let go and let God. He is your Redeemer, Deliverer, refuge in the storm. He is your Shield  of protection. Lay your cares and concerns at the feet of the Lord. Cry unto Him until you are set free. Let Him wipe away your tears and comfort you for the victory has been won. Just claim it and receive it. Speak life and blessings over yourself and others. Watch the Lord work on your behalf!

” Father I pray that any and all hindrances that keep your children from walking in the calling You spoke over them be broken. May those chains be shattered that freedom may reside and take place in their hearts and lives. Show them any hidden pain and unforgiveness that lies dormant, so nothing is left uncovered for healing to take it’s place. Let Your Word shine truth in their hearts and act as a beacon of hope, always knowing that there is promise in everything You say. In Jesus name. Amen

Scripture References to ponder and cling to………

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
 ” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Psalm 139:16 NIV
 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

Wait on the Lord

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ~ Isaiah 40:31


Good day to you all and I pray that you walk in a new day that you have been blessed with. Whew… I got to tell you that a sweet voice poured over me this morning upon waking up and my heart began to praise the Lord and thank him for what he is doing. I was going about my normal rountine shortly afterwards and my heart was calling out to pray for those who are growing weary in troubled times. I found myself crying within. People, DON’T GIVE UP!! Wait on the Lord to answer you. He is an on time God. He knows your troubles, he sees your tears, the pain you are enduring. Be encouraged and hold tight to his promises. He is ABLE. Cleave to that please…. and just don’t give up. During the hardships, Satan will say and do anything to discourage you and tell you that God isn’t coming through and that if he hasn’t showed up now to just take matters into your own hands. He is a deceiver. He doesn’t want you to prosper. Guilt, shame, lack of faith and trust, anger and frustration kicks in amongst so many other negative things that will keep you down if you allow them to.

Dear friends keep the faith. Get on your knees and cry out to the Lord and tell him all about it. He will bring you through. Just wait and see…….

My prayer is that you hold on and don’t give up. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand. Know that you are being prayed for and intercession is taking place. Peace be with you, my hugs come from afar and my tears are shed with you. I believe God will make a way out of no way. A way that we see with our mortal eyes isn’t the way God sees. Our timing isn’t his timing. Do know that He ALWAYS come right on time. He will open and close doors that no man can change. Trust, believe and WAIT!
