A Message from your Host....And the Lord said write the vision so they will know. He spoke clearly when He said write. You must never forsake to write.  Write so that they will know that I am real.   Here I am Lord writing so they will know you are real.   


Scripture reading: Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

A lot of us are going through trials and tribulations right now that we do not understand. Many people have been sowing and sowing, and have begun to wonder if they are ever going to reap. We feel like our prayers for the difficulties to go away seem to be powerless, and that God has left us alone to endure the situation. We cannot find a resolution.  There seems no way out, and we are beginning to feel like all hope is gone. You at the point of giving up, because you believe you are not going to make it. However, God is saying to you... OH YES YOU CAN! 

His word says, we must go through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God. (Acts 14:22)

We do not understand that sometimes we must pass through tribulation, trials, and struggles in order to get to where God needs us to be. We do not understand what we are going through or why.  We just know that it is hard.  Oftentimes, the terror and the shame that comes through not understanding God's ways, and God's timing will cause many to break down, and give up. However, the Lord says don’t give up.  You will make it.

God says, “Trust in Him and lean not unto your own understanding; depend on Me”. He wants us to stop talking with the enemy. Stop holding a conversation with him about what he has done. Yes, some of us have been holding conversations with the enemy just like Eve did in the Garden. Stop listening to the lies he is telling you. Whatever the enemy is telling you is the opposite of what will happen. Let me repeat that “Whatever the enemy is telling you is the opposite of what is going to happen.” REMEMBER THAT!

The enemy wants you to believe God has forsaken you. He wants you to believe God has left you on your own to work out this trying situation, and that you won't make it. Satan is a liar! You can and you will make it!

I know you prayed, and you are still waiting for your answer. Well, you are not the first person who has prayed and had to wait for an answer; that does not mean that God has not answered your prayer. Remember in the book of Daniel (chapter 10), when Daniel prayed and the answer was delayed? The angel told Daniel that from the first day, he prayed his words were heard, but the enemy was holding back the answer. We never read about Daniel confessing doubt.  Daniel he stayed before the Lord  in prayer.   Daniel, did the same thing Jacob did; he did not let go of God until He blessed him. That is what you must do; do not let go until God blesses you. Do not stop confessing faith and believing God for a blessing when the storm comes up. You must continue to believe God in the midst of your storm. God is right there with you. He is not going to let the enemy win.

God is on the ship with you, just as He was with His disciples (Matt. 8:23-25). Do not make the same mistake they made. Jesus was on the ship resting when the storm came up.  Instead of them resting like Jesus, they became afraid. They took their eyes off Jesus. and started looking at the storm blowing around them. They thought that because He was asleep, they were going to perish. Let me say, for the record, "I would rather have Jesus sleeping on my ship, than have the enemy awake with me for a second.”

That is what some of us have done.  We have forgotten Jesus is on board with us. Our luxury cruise has suddenly turned into the last hour of the Titanic.  Panic has set in because our senses tell us the end is near. When you are in a storm, it is easier to hear the sound of the wind and the waves of your problems, than to stay focused on what the Word of God says. When the storm is so fierce, we forget that we prayed and gave the problem to the Jesus, and that He's making intercessions for us. Our senses have caused us to forget our confession of faith, and have allowed fear to rise up and speak through us. We have taken our eyes off Jesus. God is not asleep on the job.  He heard your prayers.  He has seen your tears, and your answer is on the way. It is up to us to trust and know that He will see us through.


God wants you to stop trusting in your senses, and depend on Him. When you depend upon your senses, you will break down and your peace will turn into misery.  However, when you depend upon the Word of God, it will never fail you. Our senses will always confess lack, doubt, fear, and anxiety.  Then ask us the same questions repeatedly, "What are you going to do now? How are you going to pay your bills? Where are those friends you thought you had? When the Word of God clearly states,”My God shall supply ALL your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.” 

Every time we confess, "I can't do this.” “ I don't know how I am going to make it, or I don't have enough money.” You are confessing doubt in your life, and you are telling God you do not believe He can watch over His word and perform it. You are hindering the will of God from performing in your life, and you have lost the battle. Every time we confess our weakness, our failures or that our needs are not met; we are unconsciously taking sides against the Word of God. However,  when your confession is "My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.” “I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus, who love me,” and  “All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord," you are making the devil stop dead in his tracks and turn around. Then, as you continue to pray and stand on the word; the Lord will bless you, just as He did Daniel.  He will send one of His angels (watch out for the angels) to come to your aid to fight your battle, so that your blessings will manifest.  

In your brokenness, God is preparing you for greater things. You think you are failing and the Lord has abandoned, but I say to you, there is no failure in God.  Speak to your mountain, and it shall be removed.  Glorify the Lord. Give Him all the praise and thanksgiving, and watch your mourning turn into joy.



There is nothing that you are going through that I am not aware of. 
I see your trials, and I see your pain I have not forsaken you,
I have not left you, I have not turned away.

Please stop fretting about what you see; what you see is not of Me.  
Remember what I told you, walk by faith not by sight, so dry your eyes,
I have not forsaken you.

Yes, I know your road has been rough, and you are beginning to feel like all hope is gone. 
You don't want to feel that way, but you do. That's what the enemy wants you to feel. 
Remember I told you that he would.  But didn't I tell you to call Me when he comes?
You can't fight him with your strength; you need Me for this battle.
Don't forget what I said, the battle is not yours, but the Lord's. 
Call Me, I have not forsaken you

My child I see you going over reports.  Yes, I know what the reports say. 
Why are you allowing the reports to intimidate you? 
You are allowing the reports to become your God You are allowing
the reports to cancel out My promises I AM THE REPORT for your life;
Trust Me, I have not forsaken you

Do you still feel forsaken?
Then let Me remind you of the night I prayed. Yes, that night. 
The night before I died. The night I prayed for you.
Death was near, yet I was on My knees interceding for you.  
Why would I pray for  you, why would I die for you, and then forsake you?

You are My joy, You are My child,
You are the heir to the Kingdom,
so remember the Father never forsakes His children

That is why you cannot give up. Although your body may be tired and weary, God will refresh  your spirit man every day. Your current problems are small, and they will not last. Those same troubles you are going through right now will birth through you immeasurable glory that will last forever. So, take your eyes off your problems. Do not look at them in the natural anymore. Ask the Lord to open your eyes so that you can see them with eyes of faith. The troubles you see now will soon be over, and God will replace all of them with joy that will last forever (2 Cor. 4:16-18).

So, remember no matter what you are going through, God is right there with you. He is on board your ship. Allow Him to be the captain of your ship. Do not try to take the wheel. He knows what He is doing, after all, He is God.

  Only believe, only believe;
All things are possible, only believe,
Only believe, only believe;
All things are possible, only believe.



As I was driving home from work one day, I stopped to watch a local Little League baseball game that was being played in a park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was.

"We're behind 14 to nothing," he answered with a smile on his face.  "Really," I said. "I have to say you don't look very discouraged."

"Discouraged?" the boy asked with a puzzled look.  "Why should we be discouraged? We haven't even been up to bat yet."

I don't know who wrote the above joke but when life has you down, when it appears you are losing, when you think the odds are impossibly against you, remember what this little boy said. haven't even been up to bat yet.
