Today is a day where God is giving you His Holy Spirit! Now Jesus told us one important thing to pray about and that was to pray for the Holy Spirit. I believe today that as you read this word, God will pour out His Holy Spirit upon you. When the Holy Spirit is given to you, beautiful things begin to happen. “Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city: Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks; Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest” (Isaiah 32:13-15). When He gives you the Holy Spirit, the wilderness of your life will be a fruitful field. So, anyone who is not able to be a good Christian, you are receiving the Holy Spirit so that the wilderness in your life will be turned into a controlled, fruitful field. Your life will be controlled by God. All forms of wild things running around in your life are coming to an end today in Jesus name. Receive the Holy Spirit!

“When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also. Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:5-7). There is a theory that some things are passed on spiritually (2 Timothy 1:5). Therefore, you must be careful. The gift of God is such that is must be stirred up. Now, you can have a gift but it may not be useful to you. It is like receiving a package and not opening it. Until that package is opened, it is not useful to you! Many people have gifts. There are an abundance of individuals with gifts but as to whether their gifts can ever be used is the question. There is more to the gift than just having it. When God gives you a gift, you need to overcome fear and then He gives you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind to activate the gift. With these three spirits, you can stir up your gift and use it. When you have the spirit of fear, it means that you cannot work. However, God has given us something to enable the use of whatever gift we have. You may be gifted as a beautiful girl but your beauty may not give to you the gift of a marriage or a happy marriage at that. The great gift that God is giving to you is going to be made real and possible by these spirits: spirit of power, spirit of love and spirit of sound mind. Whatever gift you have, whether singing, dancing, business savviness or whatever it may be, you need these spirits to stir up your gift. Receive the spirit of power, the spirit of love and the spirit of a sound mind today in Jesus name.



The Deadly Poison of Expressing Doubt

The expression of doubt through our words is one of the things God hates. If you study the Bible carefully, you will find out that the Lord becomes very angry with doubting children. He wants us to trust and believe in Him. He wants us to follow Him, and know that it is well with us because He is Jehovah – the one who keeps covenants and promises. In the book of Hebrews, there is a question: But with whom was he grieved forty years… (Hebrews 3:17)

Was it the adulterers? Was it the idolaters? Was it the thieves? No. It was those who did not believe. You may be surprised, but God may be angry with you because of your lack of faith in His ability to bless you. Remember the story of the twelve spies. Ten of them said, “We cannot do it. It is not possible!” I call them the “Cannot-Do People”. (Numbers 12:31,32)

Notice here, that  the words  we are not able, are described by the Bible as evil. Words of doubt are one of the deadly poisons of the tongue. Observe that the ten spies poisoned the minds of multitudes of people with their “impossibility attitude”. There are some people who are filled with phrases like this: We can’t make it! It’s too late! It hasn’t been done before! it’s too expensive.. etc However, there is another group of people who will say: Go for it brother! It’s a great idea! It can be done! Nothing is impossible!

These are the types of words that Jesus wants to hear us say. We are a “Can-Do peope”. We can make it. God is on our side!

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Phil 4:13)
