God never panics!

Because God never panics, neither should you. You may be facing a mega crisis right now. Circumstances may seem insurmountable. You may be tempted to say : “it’s impossible!” Everything is against me and it looks like there is no way out, through, over or around this one. But the good news is: “All things are possible to them who believe.” Jesus can make a way, even if there is no way! Don’t panic, make no mistake, God loves you and Jesus is your answer. He can bring you through your darkest night.

If you look in a thesaurus at the word despair, you will find it means: “to lose hope, lose heart, give up hope, have a heavy heart”. See if this does describe you or your present feelings. Even if you feel the Lord has abandoned you, is distant or doesn’t care, let me encourage you my friend. God hasn’t given up on you, so don’t you give up on yourself. Don’t you panic, but instead rise up on the inside today and declare as the psalmist wrote in Ps 42:5 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? …

“Be encouraged”

God never panics! There is nothing happening to you or around you that escapes His attention. God sees all (Heb 4v13): “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” God is not sleeping, He is not too busy. His eyes are upon the righteous and His ears open to their prayers.

You won’t hear Him shouting one day: “Angels! Why wasn’t I told of this situation, what are we going to do?!” You won’t see God running for the Panadol or Advill, because He is stressed or worried concerning the crisis you are in. He is not sweating the outcome. The enormity or complexity of your problem does not overwhelm Him.

Why? Because God is greater! He is greater than the greatest man, greater than the problem, He is greater than your failures. He is greater than anything. He is greater than whatever life may throw at you. As Joel Osteen would say: “If life throws you lemons, make a lemonade.”

Remember – God wi…

If you can see Him in your inside world, you will see Him in your outside world!

In other words, you must get a vision and revelation that God dwells in you. You are the temple of the living God. (2 Cor 6v16)

God resides within you. (Luke 17v21)

See this as a living reality: God is working within you to perfect you, to will and to do of His good pleasure, and that my friend is to see you blessed.

See God in your heart, changing you, healing you, and empowering you!

Where you go, He goes too, where you are, He is, because He is there in you. If you can see this, God in you to will, work and do of His good pleasure. You will see His blessing manifest in your outside world. Because what’s in you, will eventually come out of you and get on what’s around you.

Helping you to win in life through Jesus Christ,

I see the one who sees me!

Today I want you to be aware that God sees you.

You are not insignificant or unnoticed. God sees you. He made you. He loves you and has a great plan for your life.

Remember: “There is always someone watching you, who has the power of greatly blessing you.”

God sees you today, what you must do is see Him. See Him in His creation, see Him in the wonder of human life. See Him in the many small blessings He does for us and be grateful. Go to His Word and get a revelation of how great He is. See His love, see His power and His goodness. Now see His outstretched arm toward you to lift you up, bless you, equip you, deliver and heal you if necessary and make you whole.

He is the God of the many chances. He has not quit on you regardless of how it seems. So, don’t you quit on Him. Trust Him and see Him by faith in all His splendor, love Him and worship Him.

Job said in Job 42v5 : “I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.” (I have heard of you with the hearing of …

You are a thinking centre and God has created you to originate thought.

All art, buildings, structures and forms that a person makes or fashions with his hands must first exist in his thought. Man cannot shape a thing until he has first thought that thing. You have an incredible power to think, create and imagine through your thought process. Your imagination is embryonic reality. Do you like that? Kerrie, my wife, said one day that God gave her that revelation, “Imagination is embryonic reality.” In other words, you first conceive a thing in your imagination , in your thought, or thinking process. As you meditate on that thought, see it and think it, it becomes an embryo that grows and has a life of it’s own. You feed it by dwelling on it and holding it in your mind. See it, and what you hold in your mind will come to pass in time.

If a person can communicate his or her thought to original thinking substance (faith, the building blocks of the universe), he can cause the creation, or formation of the thing he thinks, to come about.

Never allow yourself to feel disappointed.

Remember, “If God be for you, who can be against you,” Romans 8:31. You may expect to have a certain thing at a certain time and if you don’t get it then you may feel let down or heartsick. Don’t allow these feelings to steal your joy or your faith. Remember, we are to walk by faith and not by sight. Hold on to your faith and you will find that failure to receive is only apparent. You will receive in the process of time the thing that you have desired or something even better will come to you. Sometimes the thing we want to receive is not always the best thing for us. God has your best interests at heart, and as you continue to believe and hold on to your faith, you will receive the best thing.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, as the scripture says in Proverbs 13:12, but it goes on to say that when the desire comes it is a tree of life. Your faith in the best, your faith in God and His word, will produce the best outcome. It will cause the desires of your heart to manifest and it wi…

Never speak of times as being hard or of business conditions as being doubtful.

Times may be hard or business conditions tough for those on a competitive plane, but they are never that way for you, because God has promised in Philippians 4:19 to meet all your needs according to His riches in glory. You don’t have to compete for things in the competitive plane or realm. You move by faith into a whole new realm or plane and receive of God’s abundance. You can create what you want and operate above fear.

When others are having hard times and poor business, you will find the greatest opportunities. You are being supplied by a different realm and it is exhaustless. Train yourself to think and look upon the world as something which is becoming, which is growing, which is increasing. Always speak in terms of advancement. To do otherwise is to deny your faith, and to deny your faith is to lose it. Remember your supply is not confined to what is seen or already in existence. Your supply is from the limitless source of God’s glory, what is becoming, what is increasing. You …

“Don’t dig up in doubt what you plant in Faith"

Remember, better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof. Your best is yet to come. You are heading for a better day.

There is a spiritual law in Genesis 8:22 that tells us that while the earth remains, seed time and harvest shall not cease. I want to encourage you today to keep pressing in, keep believing, keep standing on God’s Word, don’t quit, don’t give up. Remember, the Word works when you work the Word, so keep working that Word!

If you don’t quit in due season, what you have been believing for will come to pass. So make up your mind now that quitting is not an option. Hold that dream, that Word steadfast in your heart. When the Word is planted in the good soil of your heart, it always produces a harvest. The process of seed time and harvest is not just a natural process it is a supernatural process. The most powerful seed is the Word of God. The entire universe was framed and is held up by the Word of God’s power. God’s Word will produce in your life what it was designe…

Putting Yourself in the Way of Success Part IV

2 Corinthians 3:18, “But we all with open face, beholding as in a mirror, the Glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from Glory to Glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

God wants to take you from Faith to Faith, from Glory to Glory. God wants to take you from one level of Faith to a whole new level of Faith, which will take you from one level of manifested Glory to a whole new level of manifested Glory. God wants to reveal His Glory through your life.

Remember you are a new creation in Him, His ability, His productivity, His creativity, is all in you, it’s all there now, waiting to be discovered, waiting to be developed, to be brought to the surface, brought out and used. You are a somebody in Him, you have a new image, a new nature, and you now need to renew and stretch your mind to this new you. Before you go to the office, college, work, your sphere of influence, you need to create all around you and in you an atmosphere of victory! Go out with the consciousness that…

Putting Yourself in the Way of Success Part III

Jesus said, man shall not live by bread alone, but man shall live by each and every word that proceeds forth from the mouth of God. (Luke 4:4).

Imagine that, we can live, receive life, by and through the Word of God. The Bible is the greatest book ever written. It contains the truth and solutions to all of your problems. The people of the Bible were no different to you and I. They faced challenges, health challenges, financial challenges, emotional challenges, family challenges and every other kind of circumstance and situation common to man.

We can read how they overcame these challenges of life through practical application of the Word of God. Today I challenge you, I dare you, to read Psalms, to read Proverbs, Songs of Solomon, Ecclesiastes and other books from the Bible. Get a concordance and read everything you can find under the topics of, Faith, Fasting, Love, Prayer, Spirit, Truth, Peace, Forgiveness, Anger, Jealousy, Hate, Evil Thoughts, Money, Prosperity, Sacrifice, Selfishnes…

Putting Yourself in the Way of Success Part II

The Bible teaches a divine law and how you can make it work. It teaches two things: obedience to the law brings reward, disobedience to the law brings punishment.

The Bible does not say you have to wait until after death to receive a reward, although you will receive a reward then, which will be far greater than you could ever imagine, because of your obedience now. You can also, through your obedience to the written Word of God, receive right here, right now. The Word teaches us that we can have health, happiness and prosperity here and now on this earth, and in the world to come, eternal prosperity, eternal happiness and eternal life. This is practical religion, practical Christianity.

The Word (Bible) says, prove all things, hold fast that which is good. Joshua 1:8 teaches us to meditate on God’s Word (law) day and night. Be careful to do according to what is written therein (obedience), and then you will make your way prosperous and you will have good success.

Putting Yourself in the Way of Success

If only I could repeat it over and over so that you could remember this fact: You have within you all of the qualities and elements that are necessary to make you a success. Your chief work is the development of the thing that God has already placed within your being.

“You are endowed with the seeds of greatness, you have been designed for accomplishment and you are engineered for success. You are a somebody, you are not a nobody, God doesn’t waste His time to make nobodies, you were made by God. You are God’s Plan A, He doesn’t have a Plan B. You are it, you are special, God made you that way. You are unique; one of a kind, and God never created a failure when He created you. You have His ability, His productivity and His creativity abiding on the inside of you, for you were made in the God class of being, in His image, in the image of God.”

Today, we have image-makers in our world, people who take politicians, movie stars, business executives, CEO’s, Mum’s and Dad’s and ordinary peopl…

I Have the Capacity to Think Big

Proverbs 23:7(a) “For as a person thinks in their heart, so are they.” Or, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

You have the capacity to think big. Only big thinkers will achieve big things. If you can conceive things in your mind and see them in your imagination, you can receive them. “Conceive it, and you can achieve it!” God wants you to think BIG. I have never known God to give a person a small vision. The visions that come from God may ask you to do small things to see your heart, your willingness or your obedience, but when God gives you a vision to achieve something, it is usually always beyond what you could do in your own strength, resources or abilities. God wants you to trust in Him, rely upon Him and look to Him for your supply and source. Remember, God is your resource. If you can think big, then you can do big because your God is big and it is His strength, His power and His ability that will go to work on your behalf.

Think big and do big things for God.

“Do the feared jobs first!”

One of the greatest ways I have learned to maximize my days is by doing the feared jobs first. By this, I mean those jobs you don’t want to do. Those phone calls you don’t want to make. Those activities you wish you didn’t have to do at all. Do them first, tackle them first up in your day. In so doing, you get them out of the way early and then your energy can be put into the work you love, without the drain in the back of your mind of the thing you have been dreading or fearing to do. You can prioritize your day, making a list of what needs to be done and ticking them off as you go. In so doing you can look back over your day or week and be encouraged by all you have achieved.

Proverbs 27:23 says, “Be you diligent to know the state of your flocks (business, ministry, family), and look well to your herds (people, ministry, possessions.)"

“Make every day, a successful day for it is the successful days that make you rich.”

You can’t get rich on failure days, but you can’t fail to get rich on successful days. So then, make today successful, full of success, seek first the Kingdom of God and you day will be successful. Put God first in all you do, and God will make you to prosper! That’s God’s solemn promise, His covenant to you!

You can’t bring back yesterday, you can only fully maximize today. Live life with purpose, live life with urgency. Don’t live in “Woulda! Coulda! Shoulda!” Forget what lays behind, yesterday is gone, learn from your mistakes so as to not repeat them, but don’t live in your mistakes, move on, live in today, not yesterday. Believe for a better day, dream of a better day. Dream of victory.

The number one form of failure in all our lives is excuses. Get over your own excuses, you were born to overcome. Propel yourself forward to get results. You can’t buy back yesterday, but you can own today, you can make today a winning day, thereby affecting your tomorrows. Your tomorrows are establ…
