GET THE CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 

Genesis 1:1 (NKJV)

Have you ever felt like you were in a “dead end” situation? You’ve looked at all your options, and you still don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel? Your doctors may have diagnosed you with an incurable disease, or you may be facing a huge financial deficit. No matter what you are facing, you have a God that specializes in creative miracles. He will make a way where there seems to be no way. Just look at all the creative miracles He performed in the Bible. His nature is to create. All you have to do is believe and receive!

IF YOU ONLY KNEW

I [Jesus] have made Your [the Father] very being known to them – Who You are and what You do and continue to make it known, so that Your love for Me might be in them exactly as I am in them.

John 17:26 (TMB)

The same way that your Heavenly Father loves His Son is the same likeness and intensity with which He loves you! The love that filled the heart of Jesus is the same true love that God brings into your life. You don’t have to wait for an emotion to come your way, you just need to receive His love and believe that God accepts you into His very own heart. You are one of God’s own.

PROBLEMS? COULD YOU BE THE ANSWER?

If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God’s love? It disappears. And you made it disappear.

1 John 3:17 (TMB)

God had to pay a price by sending His One and Only Son to suffer and die on the Cross for our sins. To share God’s love with others, it will cost you something too. There are people out there who are praying for answers. God may be speaking to you and giving you the opportunity to demonstrate His love towards them. Will you make a difference or will you let God’s love disappear?

BLESSINGS MINUS THE BAGGAGE

The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.

Proverbs 10:22 (NKJV)

There are a lot of people who are wealthy with this world’s riches, and yet they are filled with sorrow. Peace escapes them, and they are targets of lawsuits and harassments. God’s blessing doesn’t come with any baggage. His blessings are true riches that will only add to your life. He wants you to enjoy and have a fulfilled life in Him.

FILL UP ON JOY

Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

John 16:24 (NKJV)

God wants your joy to be full! Jesus tells us to pray and ask the Father in His Name so that you can receive from Him. He wants to meet you every need. All you have to do is ask your Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus. There is great power in that Name, and He has given you the right to use it, and make your request known so that your joy may be full!

DO WHAT? GO WHERE?

So they assured Joshua, saying, “All that you command us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.”

Joshua 1:16 (NKJV)

A servant of the Lord Jesus Christ willingly yields his life to His authority for the purpose of fulfilling His will. He understands that by being under authority he possesses God’s authority for he no longer goes in his own name and his own purposes, but he goes in the Name of the Lord to fulfill the Lord’s will. There is power, peace, provision and protection when you are under His covering!

BE DEVOTED TO YOUR CALLING

I urge you, brethren – you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints – […]

1 Corinthians 16:15 (NKJV)

The household of Stephanas was the first to follow Christ in Achaia. Their devotion to Christ wasn’t just for the parents. Every one of them had devoted themselves to Christ and to the ministry of the saints. Ministry isn’t just for certain individuals who feel “called.” Ministry is an expression of gratitude for what the Lord has done for you.
