Dream Big, Think Big, Do Big!

Dream Big, Think Big, Do Big!

Dream big! When you were little, did you used to dream about what you’d be when you grew up? Did you want to be a doctor, an artist, a teacher, a leader? Now, let me ask you… did those dreams come true for you? Did you grow up and fill those big shoes of your dreams, or did you settle for something smaller? People settle for a number of reasons. Perhaps, when they dreamed of being an astronaut, someone told them that it was too big of a dream. For some, access to higher education becomes a roadblock. For many of us, we settle because we just have to get a job — something to support us, to pay the bills, and to make ends meet. But I’m here to tell you today that God doesn’t want us to just settle for getting by, especially when so many of us work hard, but still struggle financially! We were created in the image of a big God. We should dream big, think big, and do big! It doesn’t make sense, does it? If we’re to be the evidence of His power, why are so many people living broken down and just plain broke? Why are marriages failing and lives falling apart, crushed under the weight of debt, bills, and lack? It’s because the enemy knocks us down, steals from us, and convinces us that God isn’t involved in or concerned about our finances. But it’s not true! “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and...
Christ is Alive!

Christ is Alive!

It was all about His Love for YOU! 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. — John 3:16 Christ is ALIVE! Today is Resurrection Sunday, the day that we celebrate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the grave. Three days after His death on the cross, He rose from the dead to bring us back to a restored relationship with God the Father, forgiveness from our sins, and the promise of eternal life with Him. On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’” Then they remembered his words. — Luke 24: 1-8 Jesus’s death and resurrection accomplished so much for us. It has given us access to miracles operating in our life, to see the supernatural power of God move, and to walk in His divine ability to heal...
The Key to Unlocking Your Destiny

The Key to Unlocking Your Destiny

Did you know that the trials that you have faced are not personal, but prophetic? From the moment you were born, the enemy has been out to afflict your life with trials and obstacles designed to set you on a path to self-destruction. Life can be tough, to say the least. Satan knows that every trial and struggle he throws at you will throw you off of the purpose, destiny, and vision God has for you. Here’s the thing: God had a plan for you and your life before you were even born! But, once you’re on earth, in the natural realm, the enemy sets out to create such havoc in your life that you’re blinded to the truth and unable to receive and walk into God’s promises. Recently, I became acquainted with a dynamic, anointed messenger of God — Dr. Pauline Key. She carries a powerful message of truth and hope that the supernatural power of God is alive and well today! Her life story is inspiring, to say the least. As one of eight children, she grew up in a small town in Louisiana. Her mother married her father after escaping an abusive relationship. Her father was hard-working, spiritual man, and her mother was a stay-at-home mom. She shared with me a tragic story that permanently shaped the future of her and her family. When one of her brothers was three months old, her mother and father left him with family so they could go to the store. When they returned, they discovered that the house was consumed in flames with their baby inside. There was nothing...
You, Too, Shall Prophesy!

You, Too, Shall Prophesy!

God is all about relationships. Have you ever stopped to think about the original design and purpose of our relationship with Him? From the very beginning in the Garden of Eden, He was always there for a real, tangible, intimate relationship. He spoke to Adam about his purpose, his wife, and provided for them in the Garden, and after they were removed from it. He is always communicating with us. His voice, through the Holy Spirit, will always lead and guide us. But many of us struggle with believing whether or not He truly would speak to us right in the midst of our human frailty. Questions like, “What does He sound like?” and “How do I recognize Him when He speaks?” plague our mind and cause us to doubt. Recently, I had the opportunity to meet a man of God who operates in the office of the Prophet. My interview with Prophet Antoine Jasmine was an eye-opening experience as we spoke about God’s voice and the ability of the believer to not only hear it, but also to prophecy to others! We spoke in depth about the gift of prophecy, and how it is not reserved for a super-spiritual, elite group of believers. In fact, the scriptures promise that in the last days, the Holy Spirit would be poured out on everyone in the world. This spiritual outpouring affects every believer, young and old, male and female, rich and poor! If you are a Christian, the Holy Spirit lives inside of you. This means that you have access to all of His supernatural gifts and you, too, can...
