Burden is defined as a load, but not just a typical one. It is a very heavy load. Therefore, if you have a burden carrying around, it is one that is weighing you down because it is very heavy. What burden are you carrying around with you right now?

Your burden could be a troubled marriage or relationship, a stressful job, a wayward or disabled child, a loved one who is struggling with a debilitating or terminal illness, grieving the loss of a loved one, a difficult financial situation, or even a stagnant spiritual life. Notwithstanding, if you do not identify the situation as a burden, you will not be able to give it to the Lord.

You are encouraged to cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you. He will not permit the righteous to be moved (Psalm 55:22). Likewise, do not just give him some of the burden, but all of it. Also, do not become anxious to take back the burden when you already gave him control of it. You are reminded to cast ALL your anxieties on him because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).

Discovering Your New Purpose

The New Year is finally here. Although some goals may have been achieved in the previous year, others may not. This is another chance to start fresh and discover your new purpose. God has not called the already equipped people. He equips the people He calls. You may be worried about your finances, your health, disfunction in your family life, or you may already have a busy schedule; however, God wants to see your faith (Hebrews 11:1).

If God has given you a vision, it’s now time to act on this vision. More importantly, you should pray, fast and ask the Lord for his directions. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). Be that as it may, when God has already sanctioned your walk; all you have to do is to ask him to guide your steps.

Do not let the enemy whispers doubts and lies regarding your ability. The enemy comes to steal, kill and to destroy. However, God came so that you can have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). There are going to be critics and naysayers who will stop at nothing to distract you from discovering your new purpose. Quit trying to please these people, as you look forward to your destiny. Life is too short to live it being distracted by others. Each of us has a number at which time we will cease to be on this earth (Job 14:5; Psalm 90:12).

At the end of your journey here on earth, you will not be standing before these people, you will be standing before God. He will determine how well you have spent your time while here on this earth. If it is pleasing to him, then you will hear; well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord (Matthew 25:23). 

Happy New Year!

Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

It is very imperative that you watch diligently for deceit and deception among you. In a vision last night, my husband and I were looking on as a young lady dressed nicely, but whom we discerned as fake, approached two women walking by her.

Wolf

She beckoned to them for help and informed them that she was stranded. As the women went to her aid, they were consumed, as if they had vanished. A few minutes went by, and the trio emerged. The young lady now appeared with a mark of the devil. As she passed by our way, my husband and I held up a cross that glistened as a light in front of us. The young lady who now turned out to be a demon, went on her way with the two women, who obviously were unaware that they were walking with a demon.

Apparently the women did not discern this young lady as fake. Had they had the spirit of discernment, then they wouldn’t have been deceived to walk away with her. They were actually being led away by Satan.

Satan is very cunning and deceptive. He will bring things into your life, or people who appear to be the real deal, but instead it’s all fake. This is how the enemy will use deceit and deception to rob you of your joy, your happiness, your sense of belonging, your confidence, your health, your emotional well-being, your children, your marriage, your finances, your career, your ministry, your Christianity, and all that he knows you hold so dear to your heart.

You are like sheep in the midst of wolves. In order to survive, you have to be wise as a serpent, but at the same token, harmless as a dove (Matthew 10:16). In other words, evil will always be around, and you will always be in the midst of it. Nonetheless, you have to ensure that you are not walking gullible and naïve, thus leaving leeway for the enemy to deceive and destroy you.

Why Do I Feel Discouraged?

Sometimes the storms of life are raging so rough, and the heart easily gets discouraged. However,  as the song writer sings:

“No matter what storm clouds may rock this ship of mine, the light of my Savior will lead me safely through the night. Though my ship may be rocky and my sails may be torn I shall rest in the eye of the storm.”

Sometimes the bills are mounting, and the tribulations  seem like they won’t go away, but in Matthew 6:31-34 Jesus reminded you:

31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Jesus is clearly encouraging you that tomorrow has so much worries of itself, and it is already sufficient, so stop worrying about it, as you have too much on your plate. But instead leave tomorrow in His hands, and seek Him, and His Kingdom first, and everything shall be given unto you. So when the storms of life begin to rage, and you begin to feel discouraged, remember that Jesus is a provider and a deliverer!

Dark Path

I have been so busy today, after a break from the Memorial holiday yesterday, but I just stop by to tell somebody that if you are going through your darkest moment, your victory is about to be accomplished. The light is about to be risen upon you today. So arise, shine; for the light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you (Isaiah 60:1).

It is when you are going through your darkest hour, your victory is most powerful and successful.

In the gospel of Luke 23:44-46, It was stated that about the sixth hour there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.  This was so, because Jesus had already given up the ghost – meaning, His spirit had already left His body, because He was dead. However, this moment of darkness was about to bring the biggest victory in the life of Jesus.

In Luke 24:4-6, when the women came to the sepulcher to bring spices to anoint His body, they saw two men standing there in SHINING garments. These two men were angels with bright ray of light shining from their garments. The light symbolized the victory and power that was gained through those hours of darkness. The sight of the angels and no body in the sepulcher caused the women to be afraid; But the angels said to them, “Why seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!”

Praise the Lord today, if you are going through your darkest moment, because your dead situation is about to be resurrected.

  • Your marriage is about to be restored
  • Your finances are about to be restored,
  • Your love life is about to be restored,
  • Your happiness and your joy is about to be restored,
  • Your peace is about to be restored,
  • Your business is about to be restored,
  • Your broken home is about to be restored,
  • Your health is about to be restored,
  • Your children will be restored,
  • Your job will be restored,
  • Your purpose is being birth and your ministry is about to be restored.

Just shout out to God, and say, “I receive these Words in Jesus’ name!” Amen!

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”

Aristotle Onassis
