Recent scientific tests revealed something totally consistent with the Bible. They studied fear and anxiety. What they found was that it’s pretty impossible to be thankful and fearful at the same time.

If you’re giving thanks from your heart, you won’t have anxiety or fear. Thanksgiving is an antidote to fear and anxiety. They don’t go together.

If you’re living in fear and anxiety, you’re not going to be living in thanksgiving. And if you’re living in thanksgiving, you’re going to have the power to overcome fear and anxiety.

So the Word of God says, over and over again, “Do not fear.” It also says, “Give thanks in all things.” The two go together. If you live a problem-based life, you’ll have anxiety. But if you live a blessing-based life, you’ll have peace and joy. As it is written, perfect love casts out fear.

So make it a daily habit and discipline, to spend time, not dwelling on any problem, but just on the blessings of God, and give thanks. For it’s a lot better to live in blessing than in fear.

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

In everything you do today be thankful. And whenever you’re about to lose your peace, or get anxious, or upset, start thanking Him all the more.

Walk daily with God at your side!

The Holy Spirit Finals

16 Jun

The Holy Spirit Finals…

Do you have problems? Maybe you’ve told the Lord, ” I didn’t ask for this! I don’t need it. I don’t always want to be dealing with problems.”

But think about it. How do you move ahead or go higher in the Lord? How did you do it in school?

In order to advance to the next level, you had to pass tests. The tests had problems for you to solve. Imagine if you had a test in school and asked the teacher to take away the problems. Without the problem, there is no victory and no advancing.

So don’t curse them, or complain to God about your problems. Realize if you have problems, then you have a test; you have a choice.

If you have a choice that means there is a solution; a right answer. If you choose the right answer, you will deal with it rightly, pass the test and move forward.

So stop running from your problems. Instead of dreading them, see them as opportunities to advance. Face your problems head on, choose rightly and you will pass the test. Then you will advance and receive the blessing. Embrace your problem for victory!!

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5

Face your problems head-on and see them as your opportunity to advance and receive a blessing.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,


The Unseen Clothes

15 Jun

The Unseen Clothes..

In Exodus 28, the Lord speaks about the dress of the priests of Israel. The instructions not only cover the outer clothes, but the inner clothes. The priests had to wear holy undergarments.

Even though no one would see them, even these undergarments, had to be holy. What does that tell us?

The Bible says that you, who are born again are a member in God’s holy priesthood. And as a priest of God, you must wear holy undergarments.

The undergarments were the part of the priestly garments which no one saw. It was the most private part and the most secret. What does it tell you?

As a priest of God, the Lord’s holiness must be the same in your secret life as in your public life. As holy as you are in public, so you must be in secret, in the sanctuary or alone with no one seeing you.

The holiness of God must permeate every facet of your life, even your secret life, and so much so that you have nothing to hide. Make that your aim. For just as holy as the priest’s breastplate and crown was his holy underwear.

Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord.  “Do not I fill heaven and earth?”
declares the Lord. Jeremiah 23:24

Is every part of your life consistent with your faith? Is your secret life consistent with your public life? Focus on the part of your life no one sees but God, and bring every part into the light of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always


Heavens Womb

14 Jun

Heavens Womb…

We spend the first part of our lives preparing for the second part. Most of childhood is about growing up, learning how to be an adult.

But in God, adulthood is about preparing for childhood. The first time, you never have the chance to learn how to be a child. You’re too busy spending your childhood learning how to be an adult.

When you become an adult, what’s there to learn? If you’re born again, it’s different. Jesus said, “Unless you are changed and become like a little child, you will not enter the kingdom of Heaven.”

The only time we have to prepare for adulthood is childhood. The only time we have to prepare for our eternal childhood, is right now.

The problem is we’re so busy being adults we don’t take the time to learn how to be a child. Drop your adult burdens. Life is too short and eternity is too long to live like an adult.

Lighten up, lift up your eyes, and behold your Daddy. Learn to be a child of the Spirit, of Heaven, for the only time to prepare for your childhood, is right now.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

In what ways can you act more childlike today? More innocent, more free, more amazed, more looking up? Be more like a child today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Pursuing God

13 Jun

Pursuing God…

Proverbs 21:21 says – He who pursues righteousness and mercy, finds life. The word used for “pursue” is a Hebrew word that also means “to hunt.”

We are to hunt after righteousness and mercy, to pursue it with all our hearts; to even run after it. But notice something else – it doesn’t say that the one who pursued righteousness is blessed… but the one who pursues it.

In other words, we are never to stop pursuing God. The pursuit of God and His righteousness is something that must never become an action in the past tense.

One of the greatest mistakes believers make is that they pursued God, but only in the past tense, not any more. They lost the zeal and passion to pursue God.

But to have pursued Him in the past doesn’t bring blessing. But in the present, it does. Make it your aim, your plan, your occupation, your joy to pursue God.

You will find and you will be blessed. For the one who continually pursues God and His righteousness, will continually be blessed with new life.

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 1Timothy 6:11

Make it your mission today to truly pursue God, to hunt, and chase after Him, after His presence, His righteousness and ways. Seek and you will find.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Finding His Blossoms

12 Jun

Finding His Blossoms…

In the Song of Solomon, the bride says of the bridegroom, “My Beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms from the vineyards of En Gedi.”

Why the henna blossoms of En Gedi? Why not the henna blossoms of Galilee? Why not just henna blossoms? Why does it matter where they come from?

En Gedi is in the barren, rocky, dry, hot and forbidding wilderness of Judea. There’s virtually no life. But in the middle of this desert flow waters – the springs of En Gedi.

Around the waters, blooms life and henna blossoms. That’s why the love of the Bridegroom to the Bride and of God to you is like henna blossoms from En Gedi.

You will find even in the driest places of your life that God’s love still flows like waters in the desert with blooming flowers.

You’ll never know God’s love as sweet as when you find it in a secret place and away from everything else. Get away today as David did.

Get away from all the distractions, problems and temptations. Get refreshed by the pure love of God in the secret place.

My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms from the vineyards of En Gedi. Song Of Solomon 1:14

Seek today to find the henna blossoms of En Gedi – in places where you’ve never seen God’s blessings or presence. Go looking for His blessings and finding His presence.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Like Pure Oil

11 Jun

Like Pure Oil…

Today’s Hebrew word is “Shemen,” which means OIL. In the Song of Solomon, the bride says to the bridegroom, “Your name is like Pure Oil.”

It means that the bride is so much in love with the bridegroom that she finds his name to be as gentle, soothing and lovely on her lips as oil.

The Bible says “you’re the Bride and Yeshua, Jesus, is your Bridegroom.” The name of your Beloved needs to be on your lips in the same way. His name, Christ, comes from Jesus or Mashiach, which also comes from the root word for oil.

But there’s something even deeper here. The word translated in English as Pure, literally means “Pouring.” It says, “Your name is like Pouring oil.” His name is to be always pouring forth. It doesn’t say, “Your name is like oil that has already been poured out.”

To really know the name of the Lord, it needs to be pouring forth from your heart and from your lips – not yesterday, not tomorrow, but Now.

Let the Name Above All Names pour out. That’s when you’ll know the power of the Name that is like pouring oil.

The song of songs, which is Solomon’s.  Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee. Song Of Solomon 1-3

In your worship time today, speak out from your mouth and pour out from your heart, the Name that is above any other name. Let it flow like pouring oil.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Paper Like A Knife

10 Jun

Paper Like A Knife…

A piece of paper is one of the weakest and most flimsy things in the world. But paper can be dangerous. You don’t believe it?

Have you ever been cut by a piece of paper? Have you ever had a paper cut? How can something so weak as a piece of paper cut you as if it were a knife?

It’s because the thin side of a paper focuses any force into the smallest of spaces. And when you focus on something, it increases the force.

So a paper can actually become as strong as a knife. It’s true of sheets of paper, and it’s true for your life and walk with God.

If you’re all over the place, it’s unlikely you’ll accomplish great things or live a great life for God. But if you’re focused, focused on Him, on His kingdom, on His purposes, then everything changes. Then the power you have gets multiplied.

Paul was focused, and looked at what he did. So too, set out to become focused, single-minded, fixing your eyes on Jesus, and doing all things with one purpose. A focused life in God can cut through the greatest problems and even change the world.

Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Proverbs 4:25

Get a sheet of paper (but don’t cut yourself) and make a checklist of steps that you can take daily to become more focused and do what He has called you to do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Footsteps On The Alter

9 Jun

Footsteps On The Alter…

In the sacrifices of the Bible, there was often a special act performed at the end of the offering called the Zarak. It was the sprinkling or the applying of the blood.

The blood of the sacrifice had to be sprinkled or applied to the altar – sprinkled and applied to the Mercy Seat.

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the sacrifices of the Bible. Thus it means that those who partake of His sacrifice must, in some way, perform the Zarak, the sprinkling of the blood.

How do you perform the Zarak? You apply the blood of Jesus, the love of God poured out, the mercy and forgiveness of His atonement, onto every area of your life.

You apply it to your home, to your workplace, to your marriage, to your children, to your emotions, to your sins, to your past, to your anger, to your unforgiveness, to your fears, to your lust, to your despair, to your longings, to your plans, to your dreams, to everything – to your conscience and to your heart.

For the sacrifice of Jesus is a Zarak. And it’s for you to perform on everything.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14

Find areas in your life where the blood of Jesus, the love of God is lacking and apply it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
