United we stand divided we fall

Blessings all,

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8, Love is patient, love is Kind, it does not boast, its is not proud, it is not rude, it is not-self seeking, it is not easily angered it keeps no record of wrongs, love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth, it always trust, always hopes, alway perseveres, love never fails.

Read this statement that one of my friends on face book made: If we truly loved one another, then the killing fields would be barren, and satan would have no means in dividing the house of God and God’s people. How true and profound, this statement says to me that we are not loving each other the way that God says too, because if we are then there would be no division among the church and Christians. If we say we have love, why are we failing?

People of God, the bible declares in Psalm 127:1 Except the Lord builds a house, they labor in vain that build it. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain. The bible also goes on to declare in Mark 3:25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house can not stand. So what these scriptures are saying to us is  that if we are doing all the building without love it is nothing to God.

See you can have someone build a house for you, but if that house is not built on a firm foundation of love that house won’t last. Okay suppose you hire a contractor to build you a new home, the contractor has a reputation of being a great builder, he’s timely, he uses all the right products he doesn’t cut corners but his attitude is terrible, he’s ruthless, he’s a tyrant and he works his workers unmercifully, he’s bitter, he snaps at you for the least thing, no one can tell him anything, he unapproachable, he eats lunch alone and he has no friends, he might be a great builder and may do a great job, but his house (heart) has no love in it. So why are we failing in Love?

I’m reminded of the Five Heartbeats singing “A heart is a house for love, and I’ve learned that it don’t take much to build it up. So family, if we don’t have love then how can we say that we are Christians?  It doesn’t take much to build up a house and it doesn’t take much to tear one down either. So why are we failing in love?

Pastor David Thompson says fellowship does not represent an organization or a group, it represents the relationship between the believer and God and among believers: Fellowship should produce perfect unity among church members. So if this statement is true Why is there so much division in the house of God and why are we failing in love?

Abraham Lincoln delivered a speech on June 16, 1858 about a house divided, he said I believe the government can not endure permanently half slave and half free, I do not expect the union to be dissolved, I do not expect the house to fall, but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Wow!!

Luke 11:17, Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined and a house divided against itself will fall. If satan is divided against himself how can his kingdom stand?  I say this because you claim that I drive out demons by Beelzebub.

Family you see satan does not attack his own, he attacks Christians and have them to conquer and divide each other, you don’t let sister Suzy sing because she sings better than you, you don’t let Brother Mark cook because he cooks & bbq’s better than you, you don’t let Brother John teach because you think he teaches better than you, you want all the accolades, and that’s not of God, see some of us do things to be seen. There is someone that always does something better than us, that’s a trick of the enemy for us to be divided, but God wants to use all of us, we should be one in the spirit, we can learn from each other if we love like the bible tells us to.

We are many members but one body. Each member has a part and when we come together there is strength. So my question again is Why are we failing in love? Why are we attacking each other?

Have you ever seen the people of Habitat Housing build a home? Everybody pitches in and gets the job done, because they love God, they love what they are doing and they love the families in which they are doing the job for. This is what love does, it makes you go above and beyond the call of duty. The Christ in you makes you always reach towards heaven and do the right thing and your labor is not in vain.

United we stand divided we fall.

Where is your focus?

Blessings all,

Many of us are going through financial struggles, divorces or marital problems, children or spouses facing incarceration, back to back sicknesses and deaths, laid off, fired, cut hours, businesses closing, unemployment denied or not extended, alcoholism, abuse, stress, fatigue, pain, unhappiness, anxiety, ridicule, isolation, evictions, foreclosures, food stamps, aid and social security cases closed or denied, car problems and accidents, people plotting against you, unexplained weight gain or weight loss, lying on you, rebellious children, children failing in school, drugs, homes have been burglarized, unwanted pregnancy, homosexuality, fornication and adultery, run away children, mental disorders, back slidden and so on, we all are facing crisis. 

But are you focusing more on the crisis than you are Christ?

Take time to think about it for a moment……. has your crisis consumed you? Has worrying about whats going to happen made you sick? Is it getting to you mentally & physically? Do you worry more about the problem instead of giving your situation to the problem solver?

Are you focusing more on the crisis than you are Christ?

Here’s some scriptures that support that we are not to worry or be anxious about anything. Proverbs 12:5 Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up. Philippians 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done….. Matthew 6:25 That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 1 Peter 5:7 Give all your cares to God for He cares for you.

God states that He will supply all of our needs, He said never has He seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging for bread, He declares that all we need to do is  open up our mouths and ask and it shall be given unto us, He says that He will never leave us nor forsake us, He is Alpha and Omega, the giver of life, He said no good thing will He with hold from us, He told us to bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within us bless His holy name, Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all of His benefits, God is our doctor, our lawyer, our husband, our groom, our judge, our jury, our mediator, our intercessor, our hope, our redeemer, our Holy one, our greatest inspiration, our handyman, our jack of all trades, He said His promises are yes and Amen, He declares that He is the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, the lily of the valley, the Rose of Sharon, our strong tower, our shield and buckler, our joy, our strength, our peace, our fortress, He said He would hide us under His wings, He will protect us, He will avenge, He would give us beauty for our ashes, He declares that weeping may endure for a night but joy o sweet joy will come in the morning, He said we can be weary but faint not, He said He would take us from glory to glory, He wants us to go deeper in Him, He said seek Him while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near, He said if two or three are gathered in His name He is in the midst, He said we will mount up like eagles, He is our Hope, our Promise Keeper, our creator, He want us to not focus on the crisis but to focus on Him.

I dare you to come into His presence today naked but not ashamed and tell Him about your problems and struggles. I promise you He will meet you at your point of need.

Don’t focus on the crisis focus on Christ.

SN: Please pray for our children and teachers today, they are taking the FCAT, may God grant them peace and supernatural intelligence in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen

Hello can you Hear Him Now????

Blessings all,

Just imagine yourself running away from the law, you’ve just killed someone, you’re high tailing it out-of-town, you’re going somewhere where you know that the authorities won’t look for you, you’re nervous, you’re sweaty, you’re expecting to be caught at any moment, you’re looking over your shoulders, any sound that you hear you jump, you’re suspicious of everyone, you’re almost to your destination,when all of a sudden you look over and see a bush on fire but it’s not burning.You don’t want to stop but this burning bush fascinates you and has drawn your attention, you stop and begin to take a closer look at this bush to see if what you are really seeing is possible. Does this sound familiar to you?  It should this is what happened to Moses.

Moses turned to the side and looked at the bush, he couldn’t believe it, when God saw that Moses turned to look at the bush, God said Moses, Moses, see when God calls your name He expects you to answer, so Moses answered and said “Here I am”. Remember Samuel was called three times and He answered “Here I am”, Isaiah also answered “Here I am Lord, send me. God begins to speak to Moses and tells him exactly what he wants him to do.

God is calling out to some of you today, are you listening?  Does God have to say to you can you hear Me now? Will you willing obey the voice of the Lord? Or will you continue to run?

God is calling you to be a leader, just as Moses was. But running won’t help the people who need help. How can you be a deliverer for those that have been afflicted and you are running from the call? God wants us to man and woman up and say “Here I am” what do you need me to do for You? Stop making excuses, Moses had a few but every time he came up with an excuse God gave him the solution, God told Moses that He was going to be with him, people of God if you answer your calling God will be with you too. What are you not doing that God has called you to do?

Perhaps you are saying like Moses, “Who am I God that you would choose me”? Why will the people listen to me? Who will I tell them who sent me? As God simply spoke to Moses He is simply speaking to you, tell them ” I AM, THAT I AM” “I AM, has sent me unto you.

The bush is still burning, so get off of your do nothing and do something that God has called you to do, the Great I AM, has spoken. 

Hello, hello, can you hear HIM NOW??????

Nobody Greater, nobody greater than YOU!

Blessings all,

God is the great I am! He is great great great great! The greatness of the Lord is awesome, His mercy is great, His grace is great, His love is great, God is great and greatly to be praised. Greater is He that is within me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).

Great means, wonderful, first-rate, very good, extreme or notable degree, considerable in degree, power, intensity, numerous, comparatively large in size or dimension.

Wow doesn’t this describe How great is our God?

I climbed up to the highest mountain, looked all around, still couldn’t find nobody, went down into the deepest valley, looked all around down there, still couldn’t find nobody, I went across the deep blue sea, couldn’t find one to compare, to your grace, your love, your mercy, nobody greater, nobody greater than You. Nobody can heal, like you can, Oh most Holy one, You are the Great I Am, awesome in all your ways and mighty is Your hand, You are He who carried out redemptions plan. I searched all over couldn’t find nobody, I searched high and low, still couldn’t find nobody, nobody greater, nobody greater, nobody greater than YOU!  Vashawn Mitchell

Happy Birthday Ree Ree, Happy 5th month home going James Ford

Blessings all,

In spite of all the obstacles that has transpired in my life, today is a very special day for our daughter Azareeya “Ree Ree” Anderson, today February 23rd is her birthday, decades ago, the Lord allowed me to birth a baby girl that I immediately fell in love with. She was the sunshine of my life and still is. I marked her for the Lord and He has granted her many things in her life, she has furthered her education, she’s married, she’s a mother and she has a career, I introduced her to Jesus Christ as soon as I felt her moved in my belly, I talked to her about Jesus frequently, I even gave her a biblical name but changed the spelling “Azariah” the three hebrew boys (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego) Abednego’s names was changed to “Azariah” meaning helped by God. The name was used for men in the biblical days but today the name is used for many females, being spelled in various ways, Azaria, Azariyah, Azariah.

Today also marks the 5th month of the home going of James Edward Ford, in the bible the number 5 means grace, grace is favor and God truly has given me grace when it comes to the death of James Ford, yes I miss him, but God missed him more and I am truly okay with that, I have a peace now. I glorify God for February 23, 2012, even though I’ve been tired and weary this song came to my mind, I just can’t give up now, I’ve come to far from where I started from, nobody told me the road would be easy, cause I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me. Hallelujah, bless your name Jesus.

Happy birthday “Ree Ree” and Happy 5th month with Jesus  James Ford. Love you both.

O taste and see that the Lord is Good!!!

Blessings all,

This morning I am led to post scripture, I read it in many different ways in the bible but I love the message bibles version the most.

Psalm 34: 1-22 Message Bible Version

I will bless God every chance I get, my lungs will expand with His praise!

I live and breathe God; if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:

Join me in spreading the news; together let’s get the word out.

God met me more than halfway, He freed me from my anxious fears.

Look at Him and give Him your warmest smile.

Never hide your feelings from Him.

When I was desperate, I called out,

and God got me out of a tight spot.

God’s angels set up a circle

of protection while we pray.

Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see

how good God is. (O taste and see that the Lord is GOOD!!!!)

Blessed are you who run with Him.

Worship God if you want the best;

worship opens doors to all His goodness.

Young lions on the prowl get hungry,

but God seekers are full of God.

Come, children listen closely;

I’ll give you a lesson on worship.

Who out there has a lust for life?

Can’t wait each day to come upon beauty?

Guard your tongue from profanity,

and no more lying through your teeth.

Turn your back on sin; do something good.

Embrace peace-don’t let it get away.

God keeps an eye on His friends,

His ears pick up every moan and groan.

God won’t put up with rebels;

He’ll cut them from the pack.

Is anyone crying for help? God is listening,

ready to rescue you.

If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there;

if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.

Disciples so often get into trouble;

still, God is there every time.

He’s your body-guard, shielding every bone;

not even a finger gets broken.

The wicked commit slow suicide,

they waste their lives hating the good.

God pays for each slave’s freedom;

no one who runs to Him loses out.

 

The word of God for the people of God, be blessed this very day and let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable in Gods sight He is your strength and your redeemer, let the redeemed of the Lord say so!!
