What A Friend We Have In Jesus


Not sure where you are right now. You could be alone or alone with your thoughts.

Your struggle, weakness or burden can seem heavy, and perhaps unbearable, but walking with the Lord would impart a new perspective on hope even when your circumstances change very little.

Honor God in your everyday. Talk with Him. Give Him more time in your schedule. Soon you may say, "Look what the Lord has done!"

The Lord has done great things for us,
And we are glad.
Psalm 126:3

Many lonely souls are bearing the weight of darkness and hopelessness.

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
Psalm 43:5

Go Steep & Go Deep in The Word of God

The Spirit of God has compelled me to share with you regarding the importance of knowing Him more intimately while you go steep and deep in the Word of God. And by doing so, you might receive the following:

  • Wisdom with understanding
  • To know the mind of God 
  • To know what is the heart of God
  • First-hand revelation

He Chose You

The prophetic gift manifests suddenly and without notice.

While I was watching "The Bible" a miniseries, particularly Jesus and Peter during my lunch break, I spoke aloud and repeated it.
He chose the forgotten and spoiled, the neglected and rejected.
It wasn't long after that I began to put breath behind His message and nudged to record for my benefit, and Believers of Jesus Christ. It is my heart's desire that you hear what the Spirit of God is saying.

You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed and placed and purposefully planted you, so that you would go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit will remain and be lasting, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name [as My representative] He may give to you. John 15:16 AMP

After listening several times to this fresh word, I asked the Lord concerning one line that I spoke, "Your faith and your failure is not your testimony." At first, I believed it to be an error and should be "Your fall and your failure is not your testimony," which is what I ministered earlier that same day online. However, I'm pressing in, and the emphasis is on your. It seems that the Lord is bringing us from a narrative of our story to His. Our testimony is Jesus Christ as did the Apostle Paul and other disciples preached. We're moving from what He's done personally for us to what He's done for humanity. It's the bigger picture a more important message -- the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Be encouraged! It doesn't matter where you started or where you are right now; God has a purpose and plan for your life.

Four Fishermen Called as Disciples
Matthew 4:18-22
And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him. Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.


Prayer: The Promises of God

When I think of your promises Lord, I am overwhelmed. How vast are your Kingdom and the power that rests in you? For you summon the earth and its fullness to be still or move. You are sovereign, and through your word everything is obedient. There is nothing you cannot do, where your arm cannot reach. Bring those who are wandering home. Bring comfort and gladness to the downtrodden. Bring peace to those who worry or are anxious. You are the Ancient of Days! Nothing falters or fails in your presence. There is no shadow of turning in you!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17

“I watched till thrones were put in place, 

And the Ancient of Days was seated; 
His garment was white as snow, 
And the hair of His head was like pure wool. 
His throne was a fiery flame,
Its wheels a burning fire; 
A fiery stream issued 
And came forth from before Him.
A thousand thousands ministered to Him; 
Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. 
The court was seated, 
And the books were opened. 

“I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. Daniel 7:9-11 

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. Isaiah 59:1


Forsake The World

I speak the Truth as the Spirit of the Lord reveals, uncovers and raises the standard. It may be a surprise, but it's worth your time to peruse here to discover that God is still speaking today to the Church. His voice is loud and clear through the Scriptures and at His will using the prophetic gifts.

Forsake the world and what it’s offering and the enemy’s empty lies. Not all are to be wealthy, but we are all given a basket of blessings—and some have dump trucks of such riches. Nevertheless, be a good steward of whatever you have in your basket which God has placed in your hands. Find those who are less fortunate than yourself and give to the poor, destitute and orphaned.

Yea, I know what you have need of and the birds of the air they care for nothing. Seek first my righteousness and all these things will be added to you.

Don’t be caught up with riches in the earth. They lose value quickly, and the thief comes to steal. Bury that desire to be a millionaire and a goal-setter and start with the simple -- being a good steward of all the Lord has placed in your hands.

The pendulum is swinging, and there are those, even Believers that are charged with success to include goal-setting for their future. Use wisdom and seek the Lord to recognize if He’s amid those plans or is He the very foundation that you build upon. No matter the outcome of your search it’s not too late for a mid-course correction.

And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be alsoMatthew 6:19-21 Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, 
Hallowed be Your name. 
Your kingdom come. 
Your will be done 
On earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our debts, 
As we forgive our debtors. 
And do not lead us into temptation, 
But deliver us from the evil one. 
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. 
Matthew 6:8-13 The Lord's Prayer

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 

“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:25-34 Do Not Worry  

Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them,“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My discipleLuke 14:25-33 Leaving All to Follow Christ
