When we take a look at the lives of the Kings, Queens and Prophets in the Bible, it is expedient that we don’t expect to have such leadership and its glory but instead  better leaders that have at their disposal so much lessons and mistakes to learn from.

If we continue to wish for such “great” leaders in our present day, we are only limiting God and what He can do.

He is the same today, yesterday and forever – doesn’t mean that what he gave today, he cannot improve on.

He is limitless and all powerful, as such the master of creativity.

The gospel truth is that God keeps making greater kings than there was in the past. He gives each and everyone of us different talents according to our ability.

Only the few that understands this principles manifest extraordinarily and when they prosper it seems they have sold their souls to the devil for riches and fame.

Riches, fame and wisdom are still much available to our generation just like it was in the past. Believe it and connect yourself to your heavenly father who can make a man suddenly and instantly rich.

With words creation came to be  and will be destroyed – what a power! 

We all need to learn how to establish and maintain boundaries with our words.

Proverbs 10:19 states, “When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise” (NIV).

In other words, people who talk a lot will often find themselves in trouble.

Because our words carry so much power, you and I need to learn to say only what needs to be said. I like to call it “talking net.” When we get paid, most of us get a net paycheck, everything that needs to be taken out has already been removed from the gross. 

You can apply this same principle to your speech.

You need to remove certain types of words from your speech before they ever come out of your mouth. These include negative statements, gossip, insincere flattery, sarcasm and coarse jesting, or being funny in a rude way. 

Instead, you can choose to speak well of others, finding and focusing on good qualities in them. They will be appreciative and encouraged, and you won’t find yourself in trouble!
Prayer: Lord, I want to “talk net” and stay out of trouble. Strengthen and encourage me as I live by Your boundaries with my words.

Ever Been Mad at God? 

Have you ever been mad at God? Most of us have; because in a sense at times we lose the light to our path. We start to get into trouble in this life when we try to figure out where God is taking us. We get into a vicious cycle of “Since this happened God must be doing this” or “since I didn’t get this job this must be what He wants.” Satan loves when we try to figure out God because then our focus is on us and not others. Many problems in this life come from our own selfish desires.



If we could figure out God, He would not be God! So why do we spend countless hours fretting about our future? The farther we are from Jesus, the more control we desire. The closer we are to Jesus, the more we see His love for us. Sometimes we see wicked men succeed (in a worldly sense) and sometimes we see the righteous suffer (in a worldly sense). When we question this, we are trying to figure out God’s scales for justice. I have questioned God for many years. Why did He take my dad when I was 13? Why did I smoke that joint and it ruined many aspects of my life? Why did our son get Autism? Why? Why? Why? My problem and yours with God will always be an issue when we try to make this world heaven.



No wonder we are frustrated with the plans we see. We see injustice, but we don’t see behind the scenes. At Disney World, there is a whole city underneath the Magic Kingdom. People are changing clothes, making outfits, and doing all the work to make everything above ground go according to plan. I am sure it looks like chaos underneath, so on top all we see is a smoothly functioning theme park. In this life, we equate joy with being in control. We want to make sure we have all the parts and pieces going in the right direction as that will ensure safety for us.



No matter how much money you have, how secure your job, your health or your future – it can all evaporate in an instant; YES an instant.



The verse that follows is at the end of the book of Job. After all the questions and concerns, God finally answers Job and his friends. This is just part of what God says:




“Can you make lightning appear and cause it to strike as you direct? Who gives intuition to the heart and instinct to the mind? Who is wise enough to count all the clouds? Who can tilt the water jars of heaven when the parched ground is dry and the soil has hardened into clods? Can you stalk prey for a lioness and satisfy the young lions’ appetites as they lie in their dens or crouch in the thicket? Who provides food for the ravens when their young cry out to God and wander about in hunger?” Job 38:35-41 NLT




Even though the lion hunts, God brings the lion its prey. Don’t ever be so arrogant that you think all your hard work, long hours, and playing politics will get you the next big deal or the next championship. We do what we can with the talents God gave us BUTthe victory is the Lord’s and the Lord’s alone.



You can work 24 hours a day, give it all you can – and if God does not want it to happen, it won’t. If you want to get mad at God, then transfer that over to Satan who has twisted you into thinking that God does not love you. That is a lie of Satan; it is not from God. God is the only place you can turn to. Today, stop believing a lie that you are the master of your ship and in control of your destiny. All we are called to do is put our hand to the plow with our talents, but it is God and God alone who sends the rain. Oh, and by the way, STOP trying to make this life heaven. When you look to death and heaven as your reward, then nothing on this earth can steal your joy, nothing! That is true victory.

As Christians spend time studying the Bible and coming to know God and his character, our faith expands. We become carbonated Christians walking with more power than we ever imagined. Outrageous power to forgive the unforgivable, stand bravely in the face of fear, and love our enemies. Passion to reach out to the lost despite intense shyness. An overwhelming desire to put others first and the strength to pray instead of panic when our nightmare comes true.



If it feels like your faith is flat, supercharge it with time at God’s feet. Let his Word work in you to infuse your faith and explode it into a cascading fountain of power and trust.



Nothing we imagine will exceed what God is able to do according to the power of his Spirit at work in us. His Spirit transforms us into us carbonated Christians.



Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20 NIV

Come to God in faith — and expect an answer! 


(James 1:6-8)


When you ask God for help, remember that He is faithful. When Jesus invited Peter to walk with Him on the water, Peter was able to do it — as long as he kept his eyes on Jesus and focused on his circumstances — looking at the waves around him and the water beneath him, he sank. When you ask God for help, focus on His Word and what He is speaking to your heart to believe for, rather than letting your faith be determined by your situation.

Walking With God. 

Walking with God is a process. It’s a journey. As a Christian, you’ll still experience life’s ups and downs. But, now you’re connected to a loving God who has an amazing life in store for you and to other believers who are walking out their faith just like you.


“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 TLB


God gives meaning to life and is all about giving us purpose. As you follow Jesus, His spirit and way of thinking will change you for the better.


“Live the way God’s people should live, because He chose you to be His. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient and accept each other with love.”Ephesians 4:1-2 ERV


Over the past five days, we’ve talked about receiving God’s forgiveness, the importance of prayer, reading the Bible, and being in a community with believers. We hope this series has helped as you begin your faith journey. Be encouraged. Walk with God and you will be blessed!

God’s lamp. 

The Lord continually probes our hearts with his penetrating light. His word says,



“The lamp of the LORD searches the spirit of a man; it searches out his inmost being” (Proverbs 20:27).

Whether we recognize him or not, God continually examines us. Our part in the process requires a willingness to look with God and discover what keeps us from experiencing a vibrant relationship with him. 
We all desire to live healed and with power. Asking the God of the universe to shine his lamp on us and in us as he leads us his way is the best place to begin.
