It’s Only a Test!

James 1:12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. INSPIRATION: At the end of any test, a result of how you performed is always provided. Each time you experience a rough patch in your life, it is only a test of how you will perform while God is working out your exit plan. If you love Him and will trust through the rough times, your test results will be in favorable.

I’m Looking At A Miracle!

John 20:30 Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. INSPIRATION: Never seen a miracle? Take a look at yourself, your children, your family, your entire life! All of the miracles you experience are not recorded in the book but you get to experience them every day! You are indeed a miracle!

Follow The Rules!

John 14:15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command." INSPIRATION: Just like parents give rules to keep the family close, God gave us commandments to follow because He doesn't want us to stray far from Him. These commandments were provided to help us, not hinder us. Thank God He loves us enough to provide a blueprint in case we get lost.

Cleaning House!

John 15:2 [Jesus says,] "He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful." INSPIRATION: Every now and then, the pruning or discarding of unnecessary things in our lives must occur. Too often we walk around with the pains and disappointments of yesterday and never allow ourselves to move forward. Today, cut off all the branches from your past which have hindered you from becoming the best you can be. You may need to start with some of the people you hang with.

Let’s Meet!

Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another -- and all the more as you see the Day approaching. INSPIRATION: Meetings, gatherings and get-togethers can sometimes be overwhelming, especially when you are already working with a tight schedule. The meeting you have to attend today isn't just to take up your time, but rather to keep you informed of what's going on. Don't think of your next meeting as just a waste of time; but rather take new energy with you. Your energy may be the difference in encouraging the whole group.

He’ll Give You Rest!

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. INSPIRATION: To rest in God is not to lie down and fall asleep; but to receive peace for trusting Him with what you have given Him. Today, reflect on each time you gave God a problem and remember how He gave you the rest of your victory, the rest of your accomplishments, and the rest of everything you are right now!

Don’t Waste The Day Away!

Psalm 90:12 Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. INSPIRATION: Each day we have on Earth is a day of growth in the Lord. Don't waste time out of your life trying to figure out the silly and small things in life; rather use this to become wiser, stronger, and more loving to the people around you.

The Comforter Has Come!

Isaiah 40:1 "Comfort, comfort my people," says your God. INSPIRATION: We won't always have the answers to some of the trials we encounter; but knowing who God is to you assures comfort is never far away. For anyone who just needs a little push today, know that comfort is being dispensed your way.

The Fire That Will Never Burn You

Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. INSPIRATION: As you continue to grow in your success, know that God is taking the steps with you. Today, even if fear is attempting to penetrate into your spirit and stop you from growing into the next level, walk through the obstacle with assurance that you are not alone nor will you finish the task alone. God is with you!

Where I am Weak, Make Me Strong!

2 Corinthians 12:9 But [God] said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. INSPIRATION: Boasting about feeling weak may seem strange, but grace is sufficient! Grace always defeats weakness. Grace knocks down barriers, fears, and rejections. Today, no matter how weak your atmosphere makes you feel, or how weak someone has attempted to make you feel, know that God's grace will see you through it. Your power is in His grace for you!

Matthew 5:44 [Jesus says,] "But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you...." INSPIRATION: It may not be the easiest thing to do, but showing love to even those who don't appear to have your back is greater than retaliating against them. Today, every time you are approached by an evil force, simply say a prayer for them and even if they come back at you, say another prayer. Eventually, you'll begin to only hear a small percentage of what they have to say in the first place.

An Open Door

Psalm 18:19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. INSPIRATION: Being brought into larger opportunities in your life is God releasing you from tight corners, tight situations, and predicaments that have very little chances for escape. When you have found your exit door from a trial, keep pressing towards it; that is God delighting in you and bringing you into larger opportunities.

The Chosen One!

John 15:16 [Jesus says], "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit -- fruit that will last." INSPIRATION: Anything chosen by Christ has been destined to be great! This means you, your family, and whatever else you give to God! Today, don't just reflect on when you chose to begin your walk with Christ; but rather, concentrate on the fact that He chose you to be victorious long before you knew Him.

Sunday, May 10, 2009


Philippians 3:13-14: One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. INSPIRATION: If you have already created your agenda for the day don't forget this: forget what or who let you down yesterday! You can't be victorious worrying about people and situations in your past. Today, forget all that has occurred and press towards your next level in God.

Good Morning God!

Psalm 5:3 "In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." INSPIRATION: God starts the day with you, but do you start your day with God? The prayer you recited before going to bed last night was thankfulness for yesterday. Your morning prayer consists of your request for the new day. If you haven't already, stop and make your requests known to God and wait for His direction for your path.

Who’s House? God’s House!

Haggai 1:9 "You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?" declares the LORD Almighty. "Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house." Inspiration: God's house is not a building, it is you and I. When we decide to ignore opportunities to help one another, we are ignoring God's house and this displeases Him. Today, throw some timber on God's house by encouraging someone, by advising someone, or by just listening to someone who needs to be lifted.

“Who Are You Following?”

John 10:4 "When [Jesus] has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice."

How far you walk is how far your faith is. When you know without a doubt whose voice you are following, you have no fear in your walk or your direction in life. You are able to walk with your head held high knowing who you are following. Ask yourself, are you following people or the voice of God?

Luke 12:32

[Jesus says,] "Do not be afraid...."


The next step is only terrifying because you've never taken it before. The next relationship seems scary before you don't want to be hurt again. The next opportunity seems frightening because you don't want to fail; but on your next level, it will be you and God, so don't be afraid, God got this!

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

People will tend to listen to you more often if what you have to say makes sense. Making sure your conversation is always interesting, thought provoking, and motivating will attract people to hear what you have to say. Today, have good conversation!
