The gospel is not something that can be watered down, it is not something that can be sugar coated and it is not something that was just history. I serve a living Savior. Maybe you are tired of hearing John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever…
Papa God, You are all powerful! Your authority reigns over all creation both good and evil. You are mightier than any demon and more powerful than the devil! You are the King of Kings, Mighty God, Everlasting Father! And You shall reign forever and ever.
Ephesians 3:20-21 : Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
“The first commandment requires us to nourish and protect our faith with prudence and vigilance, and to reject everything that is opposed to it. There are various ways of sinning against faith: Voluntary doubt about the faith disregards or refuses to hold as true what God has revealed and the Church proposes for belief. Involuntary doubt refers to hesitation in believing, difficulty in overcoming objections connected with the faith, or also anxiety aroused by its obscurity. If deliberately cultivated doubt can lead to spiritual blindness.”—Life in Christ: Catechism #2088 ✝ (via joecatholic)
“You asked what you could offer the Lord. I don’t have to think twice about the answer: offer the same things as before, but do them better, finishing them off with a loving touch that will lead you to think more about Him and less about yourself.”—St. Josemaria Escriva, Furrow, #495 ✝ (via joecatholic)

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever endured so much pain until you felt like throwing in the towel? Have you ever felt overwhelmed by life’s problems? How do you handle these situations in your life? Do you rely on prayer or pills? The Almighty or alcohol? Worship or worrying? So often in our life, we waste so much time stressing over past mistakes and future plans. We never maximize the current opportunities God has blessed us with. We wake up worrying about what we did not do yesterday. We spend the entire day worrying about the next day. Have you been there? Are you there now?
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. I know times get difficult. I understand friendships and finances can experience dry seasons. My friend, Hang In There! God is not through with you yet. If you quit now, you will miss out on the best years of your life. Things can get better. Things will get better. You must not surrender to the enemy. If you are honest with yourself, you are living better than anyone in your bloodline. Because of the Lord, you have received and obtained more than you expected in life. The Bible declares in Psalms 27:14 - Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the LORD. Hang In There! Give no place to depression and anxiety. God knows what you are in need of. Do not waver. Stand on His Word. The Bible declares in Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not be faint.
My brother, my sister, Hang In There! The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 9:11 - … that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. Your season of abundance is in front of you. You must develop a spirit of determination. You must be willing to fight for it. Friends may betray you, Hang In There! Family may question you, Hang In There! Your faithfulness may experience mocking, Hang In There! Your body may feel feeble and weak, Hang In There! Your job may seem uncertain, Hang In There! Your marriage may be rocky at this time, Hang In There!Thought to Remember: If you can believe it, God can definitely do it!
Scripture Reading for the Day: Philippians 1:6
May God Bless you at Your point of need!
Minister Darrick D. McGhee
walkingonmypath asked you: Hi, Jed. I am getting lost with my life. I am a graduate. Can i ask God what job he would assign for me? I have asked him for months, but, he doesnt answer my prayer. The sense of laziness and depression attack me so strong. My peers said God would not answer this…
It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Do You Love The Lord? I mean do you really love the Lord? Beyond the blessings He has bestowed upon you. If no more blessings were to come your way, would you still love the Lord? If He stopped answering your prayers, would you still love the Lord? So often in our lives, we lose sight on who our Father really is. Before we recognized we had a problem, our Father had a resolution. Before you knew there was a need, our Father took care of it. Do You Love The Lord?
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. Do You Love The Lord? If you truly love the Lord, are you living a life which displays your love for Him? My friend, actions will always speak louder than words. In our lives, we confess to know a lot. We have the educational degrees, the ministerial titles, the advanced vocabulary; but in spite of it all, do you love the Lord? The Bible declares in John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. It was the love of our Lord, that allowed Him to endure a cross for our sins. The Bible declares in Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. When you think about it, He died for the sins you planned, you thought about doing, the ones you were afraid to actually do, and the ones you did.
My brother, my sister, Do You Love The Lord? Do you live a life which brings pleasure to the Lord? God desires to give you everything you stand in need of. The Bible declares in Psalms 34:10 - The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. So often, we give our best to other people, and give the Lord whatever is left over. Today, ask yourself this question, DO I TRULY LOVE THE LORD?
Thought to Remember: The way you feel about the Lord, is shown in your everyday actions.
“If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.”—1 John 4:20-21 ✝ (via joecatholic)
