It’s just takes FAITH

Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Having faith to change your circumstances doesn’t just happen by osmosis. You can’t wish it there. It takes feeding on the word and speaking it with your mouth. You have to plant the word in your heart by hearing it  to see the manifestation of God’s power. This morning on this last day on 2008 the LORD started to talk to me about IMPOSSIBLE situations. There are times when things don’t happen when and how we pray they would and at that time instead of getting discouraged and full of doubt we should know our faith is being TRIED and TESTED. The Lord said to me this morning that its not you or your lack of faith its just about it not being His timing.
The LORD wants you to know today that His being ABLE is the same as His being willing. Jesus is always the same and like He said to the man in Matthew 8:3  He is saying to us today: I am willing. Believe that God is willing and able to DO everything that He has promised to you.  
This morning I started thinking about who Jesus is and the power of His name and the power of God. This morning I confess that I believe that with God nothing is IMPOSSIBLE because God can and will bypass the natural order of the world in order to bring His will to pass in our lives. I believe through the feeding of God’s word that when you ATTACH the word to a situation it WILL change. The word of God is alive and it will go out do what you want it to do. This morning I confess that  I believe there are NO impossible situations in my life. Over and over again I repeat that to myself until I sense in my spirit that word seed taking ROOT in my spirit.  Sometimes we face real challenges in our lives and the appearance of these impossible situation tries to STOP us dead in our tracks but I dare you to believe and say to that situation God is greater than you.  When I started out this year I would face challenges and dilemmas and I would half heartly wish or hope for God to move for me.
I end this year a completely NEW person. I have come to the conclusion that for myself God has called me to be a person of radical faith and some people don’t get that but I believe God to bypass the natural order of things in order to bless me. I don’t care that there is no money in my bank account I just believe that God can and will SUPERNATURALLY put it there. And the word of God backs me up in that belief. Jesus needed money to pay taxes and so it reads how he got it in Matthew 17:27 However, we don’t want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.”
Do you suppose most fish swim around money in their mouth l I grew up in the deep south and have caught lots of fish with my late grandmother and we NEVER caught any fish with money in their mouth. Our savior didn’t go through natural means to obtain money He tapped into the supernatural supply.
Jesus’ entire ministry was about doing the IMPOSSIBLE. He resurrected the dead, he healed blind eyes, and gave hearing to deaf. Jesus cast out demons and set free and delivered those that has been bound and bleeding for years.
It is natural when you are expecting for the IMPOSSIBLE to become the possible to feel somewhat intimidated but when you get in the WORD and see what Jesus did and see the authority and power we have in HIM and His name then your faith will grow. But again I say it will NOT just happen you have to get in the word and read it and hear yourself confess it over and over again.
I believe with all my heart, soul and strength that when I speak the word of God over my situation things will come to pass. Like Abraham, I am fully persuaded that He is able to DO everything He has promised. I pray that this year has BEEN everything you have wanted it to be but if not keep the faith because the word promises our future will be brighter than our past.
Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Luke 1:37 For nothing is impossible with God.”
Luke 18:27 Jesus replied, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
In conclusion Let us remember all we are need to do is BELIEVE and the PERFORMING is up to HIM. Be Blessed, Manie

The God of our desires

It has not been until this year of New Beginnings that the LORD brought me OUT of the tradition of only praying for what I need and into the marvelous revelation of being able to pray to Him for what I desire. As the year closes again the LORD is reminding me to tell you to speak His words to create the world we want to live in.
When you read Mark 11:24 in the KJV it reads Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
In John 10:10 Jesus Christ made it plain His purpose in coming to earth was that was for us to have life, have have it more abundantly.
In Genesis 1 when God created the world He formed and fashioned it to His liking. He created all the things He saw that purposeful and pleasurable to us. In my personal and humble opinion that should have excluded mice.
Anyway the message I am trying to get across is that God is saying to us His children that He wants to be involved in our desires and not just our needs. The spirit of the Lord is asking you what is that you desire from the LORD for your life?  Are you letting people tell you that YOUR personal desires don’t line with God’s will. Or have you according to Romans 12:2 been transformed by the renewing of your mind that you are able to test and approve what God’s will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will.
The LORD is saying to you that as long as your desire are GOOD, PLEASING and PERFECT then they are in alignment with His will. When you are praying out of order then we shouldn’t expect God to bless our prayers or manifest our confessions.
People act like expecting the good and great things God wants to give His children is selfish and wrong. I know that I love the LORD with all my heart, soul and strength. As well if I had one million tongues I could speak enough praises, thanks and love for the sacrifice, healing, redemption, deliverance and wholeness I have with Jesus Christ. Also there is NO person is my life like the Holy Ghost and HE is my ULIMATE and ONLY teacher, helper and comforter.
So with all that being said I know the condition of my heart when I go to my loving Father who wants to give me good things. I know that He wants to give me more of Him and everyday I want more and more of Him. 
I have always been the type of person that has the desire for caviar but with the budget for catfish. I know NOW that those desires are God-given and I don’t run from them or try and suppress them any longer. I have release my expectation for EVERYTHING God wants to give me. It is my prayer that through this message you do the same.
Confess according to Psalm 37:4 I delight myself in the Lord and He will give me the desires of my heart. Be Blessed, Manie

They’ve been served..

As of this moment every negative and opposing situation and circumstance in my life has been put on notice that they are ALL now held subject to name of Jesus Christ. You are to do the same in your own life.
See, I think that there are times when our situations and circumstances think that WE are subject to them but that is deceptive thinking from the enemy. While I was away on Christmas holiday the Holy Spirit spoke lots of things to me that I will share with you as the year comes to a close but one thing I heard late one evening was this: YOUR VICTORY IS IN WHAT YOU ARE TELLING YOURSELF ABOUT YOUR SITUATION. The truth is there are times when our problems try and make their presence seem so big but just know that for as BIG as your problem may seem you have an even bigger GOD.
You are down for the count and things are not over for you. Everything God said will happen. Have faith in God and put total faith and trust in His word coming to pass in your life. When we agree and speak John 4:4 we are in essence saying that the GOD in me is bigger and greater than anything outside in the world against me. When some demon, disease or disturbance comes in your life trying to spook you to sit down in defeat you need to in faith  say: The God in me is greater than this situation and in Jesus Name I will triumph. Be blessed, Manie

And you don’t stop

Acts 5:39 (NIV) But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will find only yourselves fighting against God.”
That is the WORD the LORD is speaking to your circumstances and situations today. Your are fighting with your finances, or your bad relationships, your strongholds and addictions, wicked people and even the enemy. No today you NEED to speak to those situation that they are fighting against the LORD and tell me them they will never win. In the name of Jesus I call every struggle and every fight to be defeated NOW with the power of God at work within me. I decree to every restriction and hindrance that I can’t quit and I won’t be stopped. I speak prophetically that from this point forward I can ONLY advance steadily and hastily. It is written in Isaiah 60:22 The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly. 
 I don’t fight with the enemy because he is defeated and his lies and deception is cancelled and nullified in my life in Jesus name. I always continue to fight the good fight of faith. Again I confess I can’t be stopped and I won’t quit.
Joshua 10:19 But don’t stop! Pursue your enemies, attack them from the rear and don’t let them reach their cities, for the LORD your God has given them into your hand.
2 Chronicles 35:21 But Neco sent messengers to him, saying, “What quarrel is there between you and me, O king of Judah? It is not you I am attacking at this time, but the house with which I am at war. God has told me to hurry; so stop opposing God, who is with me, or he will destroy.
I want to tell you that since your circumstances and situations didn’t relent this continued to oppose you  this far in the year God has no choice but to destroy them.
Just stand still and see the deliverance the LORD is bringing about for you. Continue to speak your faith. Continue to speak out your confession of where and what God was to do for you this year and again don’t stop…. Be Blessed, Manie

Failure

Failure in my life has been my worst enemy and then in another moment my closest ally. I hate to fail but then I embrace the familiarity of failure. I have learned that we become comfortable in that situation that is also detrimental to us. Today while we are STILL in this year of New Beginning I want US ALL to put an end to the spirit of failure that has ruled someone’s life. Even if in the natural you have nothing that you can see or think that you are successful or even good at God’s truth still says you are not a failure.
The word of the LORD tells us that NOTHING can separate us from Christ’s love. And that in calamity, persecution, hunger, destitution, danger and even death threats that we are more than a conqueror. So then if you can’t lose against those kind of thing why are you feeling down and out about your job, your relationships, your finances or anything else going on in your life. It is time to renew your mind by the living word of God and know that failing is NOT an option for you. Ever. Even if your success doesn’t turn out to look like what you thought it would look still know that God has plans of success for you. I know that is a bit much to take in and someone might say to well it seems that at some point it is only naturally to fail at one time or another. I agree..that maybe so in the natural but because of my relationship as the child of the creator of the universe and sibling and friend to Jesus Christ my highest reality is that of the supernatural. So no it is not natural for me to fail in anyway or on any level. And I have God’s word to back me up and put on those situations that would in any other way cause me to fail. I will not fail because it is written:
Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength,
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
2 Corinthians 2:14 (AMP) But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere.
When you move past the stench of the carcass of defeat it is time them to affirm your position of victory. Go to my other site for more there. Be Blessed. Manie

Just walk away …

Galatians 5:7-10 You were running superbly! Who cut in on you, deflecting you from the true course of obedience? This detour doesn’t come from the One who called you into the race in the first place. And please don’t toss this off as insignificant. It only takes a minute amount of  yeast, you know, to permeate an entire loaf of bread. Deep down, the Master has given me confidence that you will not defect. But the one who is upsetting you, whoever he is, will bear divine judgement.
We’ve heard it time and time again in Ephesians 6:12 that we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Just know though according to 2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
When you find yourself in natural human conflicts you have to know the truth that no one else’s darkness should be able to diminish your light. The truth is that if God be for you, who then can be against you. Also it is written that there is no one that is able to stand up against you. This is not being self-righteous it is about being His righteousness.  As believers we are right with God through our relationship with His son Jesus Christ. When have been hurt, betrayed or in anyway offended by someone just deal with the person in LOVE offering MUCH forgiveness and mercy.   Give it ALL over to God and He will make RIGHT what you are not able to do. I want to say this again and again God is able and He is willing.
We know from Galatians 5:17  that the sinful nature and the Spirit are constantly fighting with each other and so when we deal with others who are controlled by their sinful nature and we are walking by the Spirit there is bound to be chaos. You have learn to love them and keep pressing forward toward what God has called YOU to.
The most important part of this message is to know that the  LORD is saying to us all the arguments and confrontations we find ourselves in the midst are actually spirits of distractions. The enemy is trying to entice you into strife, anger and unforgiveness. If the devil can get you caught up with people and in drama then he thinks he can delay your entrance into the promise land.  Don’t give into the temptation to stoop down to the level of other people but stand TALL in the light and truth of who you are in Christ Jesus.  1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Jesus is saying to you today in John 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.  I want to tell you to see this for what it is and don’t engage in this kind of mortal combat. Resist the enticement to follow conflict and get in your emotions.  Don’t walk off that job because of animosity and hostility.  Don’t move from where God has placed you because of conflict or turmoil.
We decree today that in the name of Jesus we have made a decision to take authority over all the power of the enemy and resist and rebuke every spirit of distraction at work in our lives.  I decree to you today to stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will bring about for you today.  Be Blessed, Manie

Christian Growth

I gave my life to Christ around 1997 and shortly after receiving Christ and not seeing any changes in me or my life I felt that christianity was not for me. So I went out looking and trying other ways to make my life better and more victorious. I mainly tried a lot of New Age teaching because I wanted to live anyway I wanted and be in control of my own growth and my overall life. I falsely believed that there were too many rules in the church. In my eyes it was one too many thou shall not…
In trying to follow the New Age thing I did everything UNDER the sun but there was never that sense of enlightmentment  that they teach so much about. I wobble back and forth between New Age and Christianity for a while until I lost 2 very close dear friends and it was there that Jesus met me at my need. I was so hurt, so broken and so lonely and for a while I thought I would never be ok but the glory and goodness of God was there for me. After that I knew serving Jesus Christ was the only way for me to go . I have fallen and fallen HARD since then but in 2005 I truly made the decision to GO all the way with the LORD. From that point on and until now I have learn and grown so much in the truth about christianity. I see now that being a christian is NOTHING like I was taught when I was younger. 
Christian growth means knowing that religion is different from relationship with Jesus Christ. There are thousands of believers who know church but they lack the knowledge of HIM who calls us to be the church. Also it means knowing that though the commandments were under the old covenant they are still relevant and important to God we are NOT under the law but saved by grace. We know that when we obey Jesus Christ it is not to stop us but to save us. Christian growth means that we don’t sit back passively and not cooperate in our what God is doing in our lives. Jesus has done what HE was doing to for us and NOW the ball is in our court to walk in the truth with the quickening of the Holy Ghost.  I have learn the purpose of the Holy Spirit is not just to my sunday morning shout-on.  But He is my helper and will led me into ALL truth. Christian growth causes us to learn that God NEEDS our agreement and participation to have the abundant life Jesus came to give us.  I encourage you to read in any of the four gospels the exchange between Jesus and the people He healed and delivered.
Real christian growth causes us to know and believe our power and authority  in Christ. I have learned that apart from Christ I can do nothing. It is so refreshing to know I can make THE choice and decision to live a better, fuller life. It is freedom to know that LIFE and DEATH is in the power of my tongue.
What I am trying to say is that being saved is NOT about being passive or about staying stagnant. Christian growth causes us to have decisiveness in our prayers. Your prayers should be to ask, believe and receive (decide it done) all at once. You are called to agree and confess God’s word and truth truth and word over your lives and others. Christian growth means the renewal of your mind to bring about change and conformity into His image. You should be living based on your choices in Christ and not the conditions of the world.
Today you can choose to stop staying neutral and if you don’t like what you see in your life – change it.  We change our lives when have grown enough to become hearers and doers of the word of God. Believe what God says about you and not the world. He created you so He is the only expert on you.
Ephesians 4:14-15 Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.  Today I pray that message will teach you and heal you. According to your faith be it unto you. Manie
