know it means you stood tall
sometimes the ear ignores The Lord's call
and obedience in you begins to stall
know that sacrifice is better
and He who is in you is greater.

Let me ask y'll a question...
Everybody has experienced or atleast seen a father and son relationship right?
Aiiight, now imagine you had just been blessed with a son. As your son grows, you notice he's the type to always wants to be around you. I mean when you come home from work he's always running to you to welcome and embrace you. I mean just the sight of your handsome son running toward you, happy to see you, enjoying your presence would wipe away all your workplace caused stress, right?? I mean even when you go out to take out the trash he wants to be with you, wouldn't you be amazed and fluttered??? Wouldn't you be encouraged to do some things for your kid that you wouldn't normally do. What if he always asked you questions about how to deal with situations that bothered him like dating, drugs wouldn't that empower you and make you feel a little bit more responsible to give your very best positive answer??? (whatever you say will determine his choice) Wouldn't you feel important and respected (as in he respects your opinion above anybody else's). If he obeyed everything you told him wouldn't you bless him with gifts based on that?? Wouldn't you be inclined to do extra for him??? Think about God in the same way!!!! Think about yourself despite the weight of your age, as his son, his child for you are His. Show him genuine love and he will weed out all the negative situattions in your lifeand make your life whole. OBEDIENCE IS THE KEY!!! Most of us obey those we love and think highly of and reason with the others right?
Man and again i say man made up his mind not to follow the laws of God. Everybody at one point knows what's right and what's wrong. It's a decision to do wrong that opens up opportunities for the Mc.Veighs and the others to go on and do wrong. Isn't there pleasure in praising God? I mean why try solve your problems by yourself when God is always offering a better way but you turn not to him to solve it. The favoring God is always the right decision. By not turning to God you turn to his adversary to save you. Granted he might act like he is saving you but he will lead you to a myriad of problems that you won't be able to cope with. But even then!!!! You can still call on the Lord, you can still call on LOVE.. and He will save you.
People!! understand the world is deteriorating everyday. Global warming, social morals are getting thrown out the window, homosexuality, sex on media waves, violent content on everything popular and attractive and the list goes on!! Why? Isn't it safe to say that man is to blame. Or do you think or say God is to blame? Is God to blame for a drunk driver running over a kid by mistake? NO!! MAN IS!!
The word is CHOICE!!
choose to drink or choose to praise God!!( i know some of y'll are like, WHAT!!! WHO DID HE SAY PRAISE???) believe me it's the best thing you can ever do for your life!!!!!!!
Man is using his authorities and abilities in investing in everything other than the one who created him. Are you of one these men?? straying from the one Spirit that turn your situation around or can save us and the world. Is it right that tobacco companies are prospering while all their products are causing life terminating diseases? Why is the sex industry booming with so much appeal and glory that people can pay to expose and degrade that which is sacred? Why are drug dealers prospering when all they are doing is degrading the values and morals of society? Man needs to know who to turn to CONSISTENTLY for help. And i'm here with the answer and the answer is in the Word of God and in the Bible from which the world get's all it's power from. God will not lead you to do drugs and alcohol, He will not lead you to the way of death. He will lead you to abundance!!! Happiness and truth and all things pure!!!
Make a decision to follow God and let him give you the desires of your heart.
Say this simple prayer...
Father,creator of heaven and earth, ruler of all creation, I submit to you and your will, I submit to your guidance and your direction. i have realized that i have strayed from you and been your enemy and i ask Father that you forgive me. Forgive me for all my sins cleanse me with your spirit and through your spirit guide me into your will for me life. i believe that you have forgivven me and the past is forgotten and I am your new and cleansed son. In Jesus's your son's name, ipray and believe!!!!
my friend you are now born again and empowered to succeed through blood of Jesus Christ join any Bible based church and love your Father in heaven! consult him, holla at him, praise... BASICALLY just LIFT HIM UP!!!
Y'll know/remember how y'll used to get on the dancefloor when the dj played that 50 cent and you would tear the club up!!!! Do the same for God and he will be good to you... I guarantee!!!

This is for anyone reading this. Have you ever felt discouraged and down because of your circumstance? I mean have you ever felt discouraged, down and out because of some things in your life that you were convinced by the world you would never change? Well, with all the power invested in me by God through the gift of salvation, I'm here to share with you all that NOTHING is impossible.
Some of y'll already knew it but I needed to refresh it in your minds again so y'll could be refreshed and energized and pick up on those discarded dreams that you had in your hearts. Jesus himself when talking with the disciples in :idea: Matthew 19:26 said that, With men this (one thing!!!!) is impossible but :!: with God :!: ALL THINGS( not just, that one thing that the disciples were talking about, BUT ALL THINGS i mean you might wanna repeat it in your mind.... ALL THINGS!!!!....THAT YOU CAN THINK ABOUT) ARE POSSIBLE!! So if all things are possible with God then where else would you wanna be? Where would you be fighting to be? With God right? aiight then. Now if anybody is telling you any different (doctor, real estate agent, lawyer, whoever) then disregard it and follow the voice of truth!! for the Bible says in :idea: Hebrews 4:12 that God's word is alive & full of power (making it active, operative, energizing, and effective).... :idea: God's Word should energize you to know that God loves you and supports you all the way.
Here's another question. Have you ever felt insignificant among men, inferior among people? Have you ever felt like your own known abilities were insufficient to complete the vision / mission? Do you ever feel like you couldn't possibly do what God was / is asking you to do? Well here is a Word from God that will encourage you so strongly and effectively that you will never be the same!!! Now we all know who Jesus is right? He was God in the physical / in a body here on earth right? Now do y'll know where Jesus / God was birthed at? yeah i know most of y'll are like YEAH I KNOW!!! BETHLEHEM! SO? yeah you right but there's more to it. As i was reading through it, i was taken aback by the way He was born. I mean Jesus was born in a different way.. in this i mean, 1st the baby was conceived from the Holy Spirit and 2nd everybody in the neighbourhood must have been running their mouths / gossiping about the "sin" Mary was in and all that......Well it 's safe to say that Jesus's arrival must have and caused a lot of commotion. Mary and Joseph hadn't even come together formally yet but she was pregnant!!! i mean, there had to be a lot of commotion esp. that back in the day. I mean it was wrong and still is, to even come together before marriage let alone get pregnant!! so i can imagine how people must have looked at Mary with so much hate and animosity, like an outcasts or sth. and that wasn't all, when He was born there was already a price on His life! King Herod's meat was to kill Jesus as a child. He didn't want the Child to grow and propser.
This just went to show that God did and does things that the world wouldn't agree with / understand but it is always for something great!!! (think about Jesus) + when God's favor is on you (God favor is not just for a chosen few BUT it's for everyone that seeks it) people will always treat you with contempt and hatred. This means that kids born out of wedlock are not to be treated with contempt or hatred. This is for all those that are hated by society, GOD IS CALLING YOU TO BE HIS SERVANTS!!!! STOP KEEPING YOUR HEAD DOWN AND STOP ACTING IGNORANT, JOIN A CHURCH, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, THE PRIVILEGE THE POWER, THE FAVOR TO SERVE HIM!!! FOR GOD WANTS TO USE YOU FOR GREAT AND MARVELOUS THINGS LIKE JESUS!! Sinners are not to be treated with contempt or hatred but they are to be loved for Jesus who was God said in Matthew 5:44-"But i say unto you, Love( notice that the letter L has been capitalized) your Enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despisefully use you, and persecute you,...... I mean God who was Jesus (our Savior) did not say this so that when we act out in love we may look Holy / deep or whatever!! God is Love and He said this because He sincerely wanted and wants the best to happen to everyone. He wants the unrighteous to find Him and be prosperous too so that they can stop hating. you can only be mad if things are not going right for you but if you are a praiser you'll praise right through them casting your burdens unto God.
Verse 45 goes on to say, "That you may be children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He (Love / God) maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the on the unjust." in the amplified version it says (alike).
Verse 48 Jesus / God / Love says, " :!: Be :idea: ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
I mean God has no favorites / preferences He is perfect. He provides for everyone!!! He wants the best for everyone!!! even the sinners, the people that speak negative about you and persecute you.
Another thing that stood out to me was His birth town. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in the land of Judah and according to what the prophet said about Bethlehem, it tells you that the people of Bethlehem considered themselves inferior, less or insignificant. But the prophet( God through the prophet gave them :idea: hope :idea: ! ) saying, "And you Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, you are not in any way least or insignificant among the chief cities of Judah; for from you :idea: shall come a Ruler (Leader) Who will govern and shepherd My people Israel." this goes to show that those that consider themselves inferior, insignificant, among others or are meek, sick, depressed, broken down and downtrodden are the :idea: perfect candidates :idea: for God to use. Are you available? Can God use you? Be available and let Him do what he does!!!! let him use you for His glory.
If you are available this minute say this simple prayer with me.
Father in heaven, creator of heaven and earth, I thank you for my life, i thank you that i am your child and that you love me so dearly that you sent your son Jesus Christ to die for me that i may have life and life more abundantly. A life with no hardships a miracle abounding life and a life that is super in quantity and superior in quality. Father i ask you to forgive me of all my sins, those that I have committed both knowingly and unknowngly. Thank you father, for you have already forgiven me and you have forgetten about it. Father i accept your son Jesus Christ into my heart and into my life and I am willing to submit to Him and have Him lead me the rest of my life. In Jesus name I do pray.
:!: :!: HALLELUYAH!! :!: :!:

verse 21: but this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

I just want to greet everybody in the hope giving name of Jesus Christ. I want to let you know that no matter what your situation is God can still be trusted and relied on. No matter how bad you mess up God is still with you and you can rest assured that you can seek help and encouragement from any born again Christian under the mighty authority of Jesus. :!:
I'm here to tell you that there's always HOPE and ASSURANCE in Jesus Christ. It doesn't matter what you have said or what you have done, God is willing to forgive you and reinstate you to a right relationship with Him. That was Judas's whole misconception. He thought that God wouldn't forgive him and that's why he hung himself. I'm here to tell you that God is willing to forgive us of our sins so long us we can comeback to Him and ask Him to forgive us. If Judas understood God's Love he wouldn't even have hung himself neither would he have betrayed Jesus.
Love comes with communication or atleast an attempt to communicate inorder to solve any underlying issues that might be present. You can't betray somebody you truly love! It's just like courting a girl who always believes in you, encourages you and shows you genuine love. You would not even think about cheating on her right? i mean it wouldn't matter what kind of lady came through, you wouldn't even notice her coz you already know that you are with Miss right. Well if Judas had just communicated with Jesus about what was going on between them then I know, Jesus being a loving man would have obviously come up with a satisfying or healing solution. After all he spoke to the raging storm and it calmed down. After all he walked on water! COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY!!!
In the Bible in Matthew 18:21-22 we see Peter out of a good heart asking Jesus " Lord how many times may my brother sin against me and i forgive him and let it go?(As many as) up to seven times?22- Jesus answered him, "i tell you not up to seven times, but :idea: seventy times seven!" :idea: basically Jesus was telling him,"yo, it don't matter how many times he do you wrong, just forgive him and let it go!
See, it doesn't matter how many times you make a mistake, God is always ready to forgive us. The only thing is you need to ask godly counsel for help to see if you can avoid making the same mistakes again. Seek Godly counsel.
My friend i know this message was for you and it came right on time. God wants you to be in right standing with Him. Don't allow yourself to be a Judas, don't even walk in his shoes any longer!! Just read this prayer out aloud with me...
:wink: Father in heaven, I thank you for my life. I thank you that i am your child and that i am your beloved. I thank you for loving me so dearly and always believing in me and seeking out the best in me. Father i ask you to forgive me for all my sins, those I have committed both knowingly and unknowngly. I Thank you father, that you have already forgiven me and you have forgetten about it and its not in your records anymore in Jesus name. Father, I will walk in confidence knowing that i am under your authority. The authority of the Most High, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and that you will not condemn me neither will other Christians. I pray this believing and trusting that every WORD that i have uttered in this prayer shall come to pass in Jesus's MIGHTY name. AMEN!!!
My friend you are now empowered to succeed in whatever you partake in, and in whatever your goals are. Make sure that you are doing things according to God's Word. Seek God and then seek godly counsel. Remember to always give thanks, give praise and be joyful!!
