DO NOT HOLD BACK: THIS TIME YOU WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT WIN!

MEDITATE: Isaiah 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.   God has commanded us in this season not to hold back. It seems many are going through some type of a transition. Transitions may encompass a promotion or what seems to be a demotion. Transitions may be a move to another city or country. The transition can be an empty nest, the building of a growing family, a wedding, or a marriage that has come to an end.   Whatever transition we find ourselves in, God is commanding us to be fearless :“do not hold back.” It is time to prepare for more room to be occupied, more souls to be saved, us proclaiming that Jesus saves with uncompromising boldness, more people hearing our story about the faithfulness of God, the compassion and grace that…

The Anointing in This Season Will Make You Unrecognizable & Slay Your Enemies

3054C541-A9A1-4B00-BC9F-47322E57E3F6 David defeated the uncircumcised Philistine, Goliath. When he did so, Saul asked who was he. I SAMUEL 17:40 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him. 51 David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine’s sword and drew it from the sheath. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword 54 David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem; he put the Philistine’s weapons in his own tent. 55 As Saul watched David going out to meet the Philistine, he said to Abner, commander of the army, “Abner, whose son is that young man?”   In earlier text, scripture shares with us how Saul requested for David from the house of Jesse. David would play the lyre with such an anointing that it would cause tormenting spirits to depart…

Kingship Anointing: God’s Chosen

4DC7252F-D686-480F-9D7C-78BF1244F247   In proceeding verses in I Samuel 16 We see a father who has discounted his son, David, as a possible consideration as the future king of Israel. When Samuel, the prophet whom was sent by God himself, arrived to Jesse’s house, Jesse submitted seven of his eight sons before Samuel. As Samuel went to pour the oil on the other seven brothers, no oil would flow yet the oil flowed when David was called from the pasture shepherding the sheep. Initially, Samuel, was convinced that Eliab was God’s selected an anointed.   I Samuel 16:6 When they came, he looked on Eliab and thought, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him. “ But the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”   Jesse called his sons (Abinadab and Shammah) to come before Samuel and neither were…

Grieve No More Over the Past: God has already Anointed Your Future

In the text, God asked the prophet, Samuel, why is it that he was so grieved because Saul was no longer king. Although Saul still had the office or title of king, he was not anointed as king. This is a reminder that we can be allowed to have an office or title in a certain dispensation of time yet our heart should always desire God’s presence and anointing on our assignment and appointment for every season. 1 Samuel 16: 1 The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you grieve over Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel?   (ESV) Here we see the humanism of the Prophet of the Lord. Samuel knows why Saul has been rejected as king.  Earlier in, 1 Samuel 13, God reveals that Saul did not wait for Samuel to arrive for the sacrifice and Saul partially obeyed God. Now in Chapter 16, Samuel found himself grieving over something…
