Scripture: Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified or discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go".
My Faith Has Been Restored!!!
This year God really showed me the importance of trusting Him. The word says in Proverbs 3:5-6 King " Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding." As we come to the end of 2019, I encourage you to think about the wonders of God. How you seemingly got out of a crucial situation. Death at your door but GOD!! Financial hardship staring you in your face, but GOD. Relationships failing but GOD! He has seen you through it all!!! I believe you own GOD a sacrificial Praise!!! Dance your way into 2020!!! You have WON!!!! Your faith has been RESTORED!!!
Let Us Pray:
O Mighty and Faithful GOD that you are! You keep me from the hand of the enemy. Satan tried to trick me into wavering my faith, But GOD you kept the reminders coming; "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations". Jeremiah 1:5 and Now Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1. Thank you, Lord, for showing me I am your own, in Jesus' name Amen.

Scripture: Isaiah 9:6–7.
"For to us a child is born, to us, a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace, there will be no end."
A Savior is BORN
The Lord of never-ending, Universal, Sovereign Governance. The Lord of all lords. On a day in real history. In a city in the real world. The Savior came to take away all our guilt. The Christ who fulfills all our hopes. The Lord who defeats all our enemies, and make us safe and satisfied forever.
So I exult with you this Christmas that we have a great Savior, Jesus, the Christ, the Lord, born on a day in a city to save us from our sins!!!
Let Us Pray:
Dear Lord, don't let us miss You this Christmas season. Help us to simplify our activities and traditions so we can focus our celebration on Your birth. Thank You for being the Prince of Peace, and I ask You for that supernatural peace to reign in our hearts. Thank You for the simple but life-changing message of Your love for us. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Scripture: Isaiah 7:14 (KJV)
"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."
God Will do the Impossible
Mary was a virgin. Only God could breathe life into her womb. And just as God caused her to conceive the perfect, sinless Savior, Jesus Christ. He can accomplish through you, those things that seem impossible in your life. They are about to seem easy to accomplish! I believe this is going to be one of your BEST Christmas!
Let us Pray:
Immanuel, Jesus who is with us today and forevermore. Bless the believes this day to lean unto you as they seek to accomplish their goals this week. Show them a sign that you are present in the name of Jesus!! Whatever there is a need, Lord meet it today in Jesus name Amen
Week of December 8, 2019
Scripture: Psalms 28:7
"The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart exults, And with my song, I shall thank Him.”
In Preparation, I Still Remember Him
We have so much to be grateful for in this life, every single day. But the reality is that sometimes life demands, battles, and worries get most of our attention and we forget what's most important, pausing to give thanks to GOD. For what he has done and continues to do in our lives.
As you prepare for Christmas shopping for your loved ones. Attending holiday office parties and gathering with your friends to exchange. Don't forget to stop and give GOD thanks!
Let Us Pray:
Gracious and loving Father that you are. I give you thanks for being in my life. I stop to give you thanks. To tell you how much I appreciate your unconditional love. Today, you are great in my sight. You are the gift that never stops giving. You are all so loving and I'm thankful to call you Abba.

Scripture: John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Jesus Is the Reason for the Season
During the year, the seasons change depending on the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth as it revolves around the Sun. The seasons are caused as the Earth, tilted on its axis, travels in a loop around the Sun each year. As it is in nature so it is in the spirit. As we approach this season known as Christmas to billions around the world. I encourage you to not take your eye off of God. He is the reason for your being. Hold on to all He has done through you, for you and your loved ones.
Let Us Pray
O Lord our God, we gather to give you thanks and declare your greatness. We declare your mighty works to the whole world. We praise you for your wonderful deeds. Your power is limitless, your wisdom is unparalleled, your grace is overwhelming, your love is never failing.
You are the source of truth and lasting joy. We praise you for your power which is beyond compare. We worship you for your wisdom which is beyond understanding. You can meet all our needs. You restore the brokenhearted and heal the wounded. You have revealed yourself to your people. How great you are Lord! Fill our hearts with love as we respond by singing praises to you during this season in Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
