The Lordship of Love

Image
Dear Partner, Family & Friends, "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want." -  Psalm 23:1  The word 'Lord' here is 'Jehovah'. Psalm 23 is a love song. It is faith's love song. It shows the heart of the Father for His absolute care of His children. God wants to completely protect, provide and care for His children in every way. He is your lover, your caretaker, your protector and provider.  The Lord is your shepherd, you shall not want or lack any good thing! Psalm 84:11  says, "For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly." I shall not want for food. I shall not want for clothes. I shall not want for a home. I shall not want for health, for He is the strength of my life. Psalm 23:2 ,  "He makes me to lie down in green pastures;" That is quietness, security and rest. Even if there are enemies, you can lie down because He is your Victory! It is

Beating the Blues

Image
 Dear Partner, family & friends, "Do not give your past the power to define your future." - Anonymous  There are varying degrees of depression, from a mild case of the blues to full-on clinical depression. To cope with something, you must first recognize its source. Satan is the author of depression. It is one of his favourite tools for ravaging the minds of men and women of today. Look at the current suicide rates. Evil spirits like depression attack you in order to crush and break your spirit, harassing your mind with fear, doubt and uncertainty. They are the cause of frustration, can destroy your health, your peace of mind and even your home! If you do not take dominion over them.  James 4:7  says,  "Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." Refuse to be Satan's dumping ground! Boldly quote the Word of God! The Word is the Christian's most effective weapon against the enemy! 2 Corinthians 10:4 ,  "For the weapons of o

Father's Day

Dear Partner, family & friends, "Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me"    - Wade Boggs This Sunday is Father's Day!  I felt to share on the importance of honouring our Dads. As you can see from the quote, anyone can be a Father, but not every Father is a Dad. Our heavenly Father is not only a Father to us, but He is also a Dad. God loves us, sending His only Son to die for us, to give us everlasting life, joy, peace and happiness. God not only wants to be a Father to you in the eternal Kingdoms to come, but He wants to be a Dad to you now.   God wants to protect us; care for us with long life, satisfy us and reveal to us His great salvation. Romans 8:15  says,  "The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’" We can see her

The Discipline of Prayer Changes Things!

Dear Partner, family and friends, "Discipline; the special ingredient needed to move from the reality of today to your dreams of tomorrow."    Dr. Shaun Marler Wow! What interesting days we are living in. I want to write to you today to encourage you not to quit. I want to encourage you today, to keep believing,  decreeing and declaring your total victory through Jesus Christ, over Satan, sin, sickness and the grave!   The Word says,  "Whom the Son sets free is free indeed!"  ( John 8:36 ). Remember Jesus came to set the captives free, and He gave that liberating anointing of the Holy Spirit to us. You are anointed to set the captives free! You are anointed to declare the victory!  You are anointed to speak FREEDOM over your community, state and nation!  Let's speak FREEDOM over our cities today!  It is time to see His Kingdom come, and HIS will be done on earth as it is in heaven!  Let that sink in. God wants it done on earth as it is in heaven! It is our job t

Prayer Stops Plagues

  Dear Partners, family and friends, "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."   2 Chronicles 7:14 The bible says in  Hebrews 8:6  that we have a  "better covenant " than the Israelites had.  Many times when the Israelites were facing destruction, plagues or unbeatable odds, they would cry unto the Lord and He would save them and deliver them from their distresses.   If God can protect them, He can surely protect us as well.  God repeatedly saved His people out of disaster.  He can save you too.  1 Chronicles 21:14-16  says,  "So the Lord sent a plague on Israel, and seventy thousand men of Israel fell dead. 15 And God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem. But as the angel was doing so, the Lord saw it and relented concerning the disaster and said to the angel who was destroying the people, “Enough

Prioritize The Presence Part 2

Dear family, friends & partners, "If you want something you never had, you have to do something you have never done." -  Dr. Shaun Marler. As I was meditating on this thought/quote that the Lord gave me in the late '80s or early '90s, it came to me that I promised to do Part 2 of  'Prioritize the Presence'  this week. I went back, and I read a blog that I had posted on September the 29th, 2008, on the above quote. In that blog, I asked the questions, how much do you want to have success in your life? Enough to change what you are saying? Enough to change what you are doing? Or enough to change what you are focusing your attention on?   You have to act on God’s Word even when everything is telling you it won’t work.  If you want it that much, the  Word of God guarantees you will find success in life.  The Word tells us that God’s success is good success. There are two kinds of success, good success that brings happiness with it, and the kind that brings sor

Prioritize The Presence

  Dear family, partners and friends, "Life won’t always be rosy when you’re a Christian, but with Jesus, it will always be amazing."  -  Cherise Marler Last Sunday evening, when I shared a short message at Ps. Daniel Hagen's Fire Church, Sunshine Coast, I opened with the statement,  "We must prioritize the presence of God."   During the worship that evening, while people were sharing prophetically what was on their heart, I heard the word  'priority'  and  'presence'  a number of times.  God that afternoon, had been speaking to me about  prioritizing His presence. Recently, I was asked,  "How can we be Rapture Ready?"   Now, first of all, I like to say, we need to plan our lives like Jesus isn't coming for a hundred years, but we need to live our lives like He is coming today!  Now, what must we do to be Rapture Ready?  Well, I will take you to the words of Jesus.   "Watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation: the spiri
