Is It Me?

One of the things Jesus dealt with during His earthly ministry was the spiritual realm. So what does that have to do with me? Everything, and also it has to do with those around us. Jesus could see in the spiritual realm. He knew when He was speaking to the person or when a demonic spirit was speaking through the person to Him. The disciples also knew. There are a lot of Christians who are familiar with this too as well as a lot of others. What about you? IS IT ME…

Do you know the difference between your thoughts and someone else’s? Do you think every thought you hear? Did you catch that? Have you ever wondered, “Where did that thought come from? I don’t think that way!” Well guess what, there is more than one place they could have come from. We usually think thoughts that are familiar to us, things we’ve meditated on, books we’ve read, movies we’ve seen, songs we sing, etc. There are things we’ve carried from our childhood and among our friends that are very familiar to us. Then there are the words spoken by angels and the Lord Himself. Lastly, there are the words of demonic spirits.

How do you tell where a thought came from that is a familiar thought? Was it you or was it from something intending to keep or bring you down? Is there a certain area in your life where you just can’t seem to get the victory? Check it out a little closer and you might find that it isn’t all you and it might not be your fault. You do have enemies. Their sole purpose is to destroy God’s creation in any way they can.

Angels and demons are not all knowing. They can’t read our thoughts. They are powerful though and they operate in the spiritual realm where we usually can’t see them. They have an advantage over us and without the power of the Holy Spirit to show us things we can be at their mercy. Thankfully, we can overcome them by knowing and speaking the truth, mainly to ourselves. Why would we keep thinking thoughts that are lies about us and others? You can become what you think and speak. Words and thoughts are very powerful. Words and thoughts make people do various things, some unthinkable and tragic and others very successful.

The best thing of all is that no matter where you are now, you can change everything through the power of Holy Spirit, your thoughts and your words. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Let it be new. Find the truth. Dare to admit you might be wrong. Ask for forgiveness if you need to, and then dare to chart your new course. Only you can keep you from finishing the race. Father created you for a wonderful purpose and destiny. Jesus died on the cross so you could be forgiven, obtain right standing with Father, and receive the power of the Holy Spirit to finish the path and race before you. You don’t even have to go alone. He will walk with you and will never leave you alone. How can you not succeed? You have everything going for you, including the great cloud of witnesses who have lived their lives before you as a testimony. There are brothers and sisters all over the world who are on the same quest and are praying for you. Lift up your eyes and get them focused on Him and His greatness, not on you and your littleness. Walk, one step at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time until you get to the end. Live your life to its full and let others read about Him through your living book, one page at a time. I’ll see you there if I don’t get the chance to here. Be encouraged, my friend. Things can change in a moment. He is the best thing that has ever happened in my life.

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…
