William McDowell Night of Worship LIVE in Knoxville 2

Outside View

When people shun you because they think that you have it "all together", don't try to explain yourself to them. We all go through things, but it's a choice whether we want to stay in them, or move out. Jesus came so that we could be free, I literally mean free. Free from sin, worries, negativity, turmoil, etc. Now that does not mean that the darts won't come up against us. In fact, the prince of the air comes to sift us as wheat. When that time comes, you better get some prayer partners who can get a prayer through or somebody who can show you what the Word of God actually says until you can understand that you don't need a high priest anymore and that you can go to the throne yourself. People tend to stand on the outside looking in and don't see the persecution you've been through to get where you are. Hold firm and know that God is no respecter of persons. Keep moving forward, because God purposes or acts according to His will. Then, He will get the…

Eyes Lifted Up

1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

In the Land of Grace, there lived a young woman in her mid-twenties. She was often accused of living in a fantasy world. Not that she conjured up unrealistic thoughts, but there was a spirit of freedom this young woman possessed. One afternoon as she sat by the Oak tree in her backyard, journaling and listening to music, she had an encounter. She realized that she was indeed different from many of her friends, associates, and young adults her age. When they were going along with the flow, she would sit back and observe. You see this young woman walked in the authority that God proclaimed that she would. She would sit day after day in her free time, enjoy…

Divine Observation

You're situation is under divine observation. ~Bishop Joseph W. Walker, III

God's Love Letter to His People

Have you ever turned on the television and flipped the channels and suddenly ended up on a channel that captured your attention that you stopped and ended up spending a couple of hours glued to the TV screen because the plot was so intriguing. Or, have you ever opened a book and read the first chapter, but didn't actually intend to put it down until maybe chapter five because at each stopping point you came to, the plot was so good, it drew you to want to read the next chapter and the next. You read five chapters without realizing three hours later, you were at the end of chapter twelve. Let's picture a group of believers who were living for God, but somehow distractions came and worldly desires led them to live sub par, below what God planned for them. They did not realize or perhaps forgot that God had already blessed them with ALL Spiritual blessings.

Let's take a look at what the Apostle Paul did to remind the Ephesians, the believers, that God loved them so much tha…

But God

When it seems like there is no way out of turmoil, but God can render a safe haven! He is our shelter in the time of storm.

When it seems like people are fickle, but God is a friend who can turn a frown into a smile. Thank you Jesus for being our friend.

When sickness and disease comes from all directions, but God is a healer! He heals us ALL! Thank you Lord for your healing hands.

When the roads seem crooked, but God can make the crooked places straight!

When foolishness is rampart, but God is our wise Counselor! Thank you Lord for wisdom.

When the weather forecasters predict rain, but God can send the sun in the mist of the rain. What a beautiful rainbow!

When all else fails, but God can pick you and I up and turn us around and use us for His glory!

When we make mistakes and offend others, but God is merciful and gracious to wipe the slate clean.

Dear Lord,
We surrender our will for Your Will. Although we may not fully understand our mission, we believe that you will reveal it to us in du…
