A Psalm of Praise....... Praise the Lord!

1 Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!

2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with

singing. 3 Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us,

and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.

Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. 5 For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth

endures to all generations.

The Day God Gave Me A Son

Psalms 127:3-5

"Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate."

Words cannot express the awesomeness of God's love by blessing our home with a Son. I love you and I thankyou Father God for all that you have done for us.

Jeremiah 29:11 - God's Plan for You

Jeremiah 29"11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

There are 7 P's found in this verse of scripture.

#1) Promise - This is defined as a declaration assuring that one will or will not do something; a vow. The bible is God's Holy Word and it is full of promises made to us his children. Psalm 105:42 states "For he remembered his holy promise.." God is not a man that he should lie. If he said it, then we can trust in his word and wait on him. Jeremiah 29:11 is a promise God made to the children of Israel when they were in bondage for seventy years. We the church of the living God are spiritual Israelites and we have been set free by the blood of Jesus Christ. Every promise that is found in the word of God belongs to us today. We can lay hold of this promise of Jeremiah 29:11.

#2) Plan - This is defined as a scheme or method of acting, doing, proceeding, making, etc., developed in advance: battle plans;  a design or scheme of arrangement. God's plan for our lives are bigger than the plans we may have. The plan of God is perfect and complete. God's plan for us involves wholeness, prosperity, protection and providence. We have a God who loves us and has made provision for our well being and for future generations to come. In order for us to know the plan of God for our lives we must daily read his word and follow it. God is the author and finisher of our faith.

#3) Purpose - This is defined as the object toward which one strives or for which something exists; an aim or a goal. Everyone of you reading this blog today was born with a purpose from God. Your purpose for being here came from God and not your Guidance Counsellor. God dreamt a dream where one day in time he would have sons and daughters who would walk in the image and likeness of God and would rule and dominate the earth. Child of God, you are not an accident or even an experiment. God has ordained for you to be here so that you can take your rightful place in his kingdom.

#4) Prosper - This is defined as to succeed in an enterprise or activity; especially : to achieve economic success; to become strong and flourishing. God's plan for your life is to succeed in an enterprise or activity or to become strong and flourishing. I encourage you today that if you are out of work get busy doing some good service or charitable act. We serve a God who rewards the good works of our hands. When we get busy doing something good, God steps in and blesses our efforts with economic success. In other words, do your best at whatever you put your hands to and money will come and seek you out.

#5) Promotion - This is defined as the act of promoting or the fact of being promoted; advancement; encouragement of the progress, growth, or acceptance of something. Psalm 75:6 & 7 states: "For promotion come neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he puts down one, and sets up another." This scripture of promise is actually a promise of promotion from God. His good will to us. We are advancing in life when ever we come under the lordship of Jesus Christ in the Earth. We need not fear no one but only look to the Lord for guidance and direction.

#6) Protection - This is defined as the act of protecting or the state of being protected; preservation from injury or harm. God has promised to prosper you and not to harm you. Have you ever heard this cliche? New level , new devil! Child of God, we need not worry or fret about what tomorrow holds for we know who holds tomorrow. We are under the divine plan and protection of Almighty God. Psalms 91: 4 - 7 states: "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee."

#7) Providence - This is defined as the foreseeing care and guidance of god or nature over the creatures of the earth. God has thought about your beginning and your end. He is such a loving and caring Father in that his plan not only includes wholeness, prosperity, protection and promotion but he has laid out his best for you today and for tomorrow. We can enjoy the blessings of God when we submit to him and his will for our lives.
I see you in your future and it is full of hope for you and your loved ones.

For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.

It is my prayer that you grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

This is Your Higher Calling...."Live Higher!"


Never Give Up.
