The Power of God: #SpiritualSundays

The Power of God: Written by Tamara D. McCarthy

The following scriptures will provide a more in-depth understanding of the Power of God:

1 Corinthians 1:18

2 Corinthians 12:9

Romans 1:16

Romans 15:13

Ephesians 3:16

2 Timothy 1:8

2 Peter 1:3

Ephesians 1:19

Acts 10:38

1 Corinthians 2:5

Isaiah 40:29-31

 

Many of us are still not fully grasping the power that we receive from God!

We are still walking around like we don’t know who we are and whose we are!

 

Many of us release our power and hand it over to the enemy because we don’t believe that we are worthy of it!

 

We are still giving the enemy full access into our lives and believing the lies that he whispers in our ears, and therefore relinquishing our rights to the power of God!

 

You must’ve forgotten that the enemy; your enemy and mine only comes to steal, kill and destroy!!

 

Our Heavenly Father has given you the Authority (Luke 10-19) to crush serpents (snakes) and scorpions (predators) and you’re out here given away that authority to partner with the enemy; because he somehow promised you the world!

 

We found out in Matthew 4:1-11 that the enemy tried his hardest to tempt Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but he got shot down!! (Jesus had been fasting for 40 days and 40 nights and he appeared weak and the enemy decided to make his move, but guess what Jesus was still ready and equipped to take him on!)

 

Do you remember how Jesus shot him down? With the word of God…that’s your number #1 weapon against the enemy!! Your Bible; each and every time he comes to you with his lies you tell him what the Bible says!! What God says! What Jesus says!!

 

How many of us fall, victim, when we’re at our lowest points in life? I’ve come to remind you to Be on guard because the enemy is near and waiting to see who he can devour!

 

Men and women of God be on guard be aware of your surroundings and of those that are creeping their way into your inner circles! Your friend zone! They come too you smiling and calling you friend, their woman, their man and all the while silently plotting to take you out!! They seek to get you far away from God and the purpose He has placed in you! The Power to be the woman or man He has called you to be!!

 

God has placed something in you that only you can deliver! Only you can bring to life and that’s the very thing that the enemy wants to get access to so he can use it for himself or bury it where you won’t be able to recover it! Take back your Power and shut the enemy down once and for all…

 

How many of you are ready to take your Power back?

 

 

Many men or grown boys are blaming women for their downfalls in life!! You have that Adam spirit!! The woman did this! The woman did that! Start taking responsibility for “your” actions and what you failed to do and correct it!! It’s time to realize your power and take it back!! You are supposed to be the head and not the tail!! Stop allowing the enemy full access into your life!! Put your foot down and crush that serpent once and for all!!

#SpiritualSundays: Guest Blogger Evangelist Angie Bee

Let Us Resolve to Go, Speak, Do and be Used in 2019

I was trying to go back to bed this morning, after waking up at 5:00 am. While I was awake, I checked my email (on my phone) and responded to some notifications (on Facebook, on my phone) and I watched the 7:00 am broadcast of a TV show that I shot, edited and produced. My agency was honored to create four programs for a dynamic Prophetess, and they debuted in December on WACX in Orlando Florida. Working on that show was a blessing because it reminded me of the gifts and talents God bestowed upon me, many years ago. Thank you Jesus! I started a load of laundry and put a ham bone in the crock pot, to prepare for soup (Proverbs 31:10 woman) and I sat an read a few pages of the Essence magazine… the one with Former First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover.

By 9:00 am, I had crept back in the bedroom, trying not to disturb my hubby’s blissful snoring. I slid in the bed, tucked the covers over us both and snuggled up to hold him, and go back to sleep. As I was drifting off, I heard a voice in my head say “What about me?” “Yes, Lord! Was my response. I am honored to spend time with you”.

My priorities this morning may have been a bit off, but my resolve to do better is strong and focused. As a result of my willingness to pray and serve Him, I now have this inspirational message to share with each of you.

First: It is time to go. Have you been waiting for the perfect time to move in to a new home, to leave a relationship or go back to school? It is time to go! Not just because it is New Years and folks are making New Years Resolutions, but it is time to go! You have been praying for a breakthrough and waiting for a change, so now be inspired to get up and GO!

Second: Let somebody use you. No, I don’t mean to let someone take advantage of you or abuse you. What I mean is to do something for someone else. Cut the widow’s lawn or take her a plate of food. Shovel the single mother’s snow or meet them at the park for a play-date. Volunteer at your church or the community center and let that toddler paint your fingernails. Let them enjoy your time, for a change.

Third: Speak to someone else. That relative got on your nerves over the holidays. He came to your home with a date, and took home a giant “To-Go” plate. Your aunt gossiped about everyone and complained about the food and your son announced that he was moving back home, with his girlfriend (and they are expecting!). Lord help! You grinned and bore it all, and now it is time to speak to them. Take a deep breath and write a letter. Not an email, use a pen and paper. Write out what you see their problem is, offer a solution based upon your experience and/or training and give them an ultimatum. Let the letter sit for a day or two, re-read it, edit it, re-write it and mail it to them.

Fourth: It is time to do something that scares you. Ask her to marry you. Say “Yes” to him and say “No” to them. Stop avoiding the doctor visit and schedule that surgery. Tell your spouse how you feel and what you want to see change and step out on faith to launch that ministry, that book, that business or even that friendship. There is no reason for your fear and the pressure has been building. My husband always says “Pressure can burst a pipe” and I don’t want you to burst! I was watching an episode of #TalkStoop, and the guest on the show said “Pressure creates Diamonds”. Use that pressure to create something new in your life and don’t delay another moment.

Now, let’s pull all this inspiration into spiritual terms. As an ordained, prophetic evangelist, my foundation scripture is found in Isaiah 6:8 which says “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” I ask the Lord to “send me”. To “speak through me” and to “Use Me”, and, at times, I am scared. I never know where His path will take me or even how I will get there… but my willingness to serve HIM makes my ability stronger than my fears. I serve the Lord with gladness and I use the gifts and talents that He has anointed me with to go where He leads me, to speak to whom He directs me to speak to and to do what He instructs me to do. I go, I speak, I do and I am used, by God.

How can you apply this to your life if you are NOT in ministry, like I am.

Forward this message to someone that needs to learn this message. Use it in your letter that you are writing, or place it on your Vision Board, to inspire your transition. Study 1 Corinthians 12:5-6 which teaches us “5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work”. I am not telling you to attend seminary school and become a missionary, but I am telling you that Our Father has His hand upon every step you take and every move you make. He is the one that is responsible for your waking moments, your peaceful rest and that food upon your plate. If He can take care of the animals in your yard, won’t He take care of you? (“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? – Matthew 6).

Ask Him to lead you and guide you, and don’t move until you hear HIS voice. Strive to study His word and strive to make HIM proud of you. Live for God on the job, in your home, at school and in your community. Take care of your body (His temple) and don’t put ANYTHING or ANYONE ELSE in front of caring for yourself. Be still, and know that HE is your God and keep the faith in knowing that if He brought you out of 2018, then He can do something miraculous for you in 2019. (Isaiah 30:21 English Standard Version (ESV)

21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left).

It is time to resolve!

Amen.
