Good Morning. YOU are not ALONE! I’m serious, the Holy Spirit is with you this very minute! I’M POSITIVE! I know this because Jesus promised that He’d be with us. It’s in The Word. Here’s Jesus speaking of the Holy Spirit. “But You know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.” (John 14:17b)...

All week long, “Thank God For Trouble!” It will work a character trait in your life called PERSEVERANCE. Brilliant people who PERSEVERE win in the end. I’m POSITIVE. Here’s the word. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” (James 1:2-3)...

We are called to honor our parents every day of our lives. In fact, it is one of the Ten Commandments. In Exodus 20:12, God tells His people, “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” This weekend is Mother’s Day, a holiday we’ve celebrated in the United States since 1914, and we have the opportunity to love and honor our mothers by dedicating a whole day to her! This year, take time to thank your mother for all she’s done for you. Thank her: For the sacrifices she’s made. For allowing you to make mistakes, but always being there after. For making you do chores and teaching you responsibility. For always being your biggest cheerleader. For always listening. For showing you what love is. Your mother is a precious gift from God. So call the mothers in your life, or if you can go visit them. Take this opportunity to tell your mom how grateful you are for everything she’s taught you, and how she helped shaped you into the person you are!  ...

There are all kinds of TV channels today, including Apple, Netflex, Amazon Prime, and Hulu, just to name a few. But there’s only one that you must keep on 24/7, and that’s your “God Channel.” Remember God’s always speaking, the question is are we tuned in? Here’s the Word: “For God does speak — now one way now another — though no one perceived it.” Job 33:14...

You have a purpose, a God-given purpose. And God has given you the gifts you need to fulfill that purpose! Not sure what your purpose is? We’re not put on this earth without guidance, and we are not left to wander around lost. God has given us a manual explaining why He created us, what our lives should look like, what we should absolutely avoid, and what our future holds! Turn to God’s Word. Build your life on eternal truths. Ready to live your God-given purpose? Ask these five questions, pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance as you answer them, then live your life with purpose!   What is the center of my life? Is it yourself or God? Your center determines your strength, and God is your unshakable center! Keep Him there on a daily basis.   What does the character of my life look like? What kind of person do you want to be? Do you recognize the fruits of the Spirit in your life and use them for God’s work? Your character is a testimony to others of God’s work in your life!   What contribution do I want my life to make?  How will you use your spiritual gifts and abilities to make...

Today is a good day to rally FEAR in your life! That’s right! You heard me. I’m talking about respect. As in, “Who do you fear?” Rally all the FEAR/Respect you have today for Jesus! I’m positive He’ll be there for you in a minute!  Here’s the Word ...

Wait On Jesus Today And Find New Strength! Slow down, you move too fast. You may be thinking you have to push forward to stay in the race, but waiting helps you move with positivity and direction. That .. .will keep you STRONG! I’m totally positive about that!! The Word says, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength!” (Isaiah 40:31)...

Peter told the members of the fledging Church, “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession” (1 Peter 2:9). Just as they were, you are one of God’s CHOSEN. So what does being Chosen mean? 1. God does not choose you because of your faith, your faith is the result of His choosing you! “You did not choose me, but I chose you.” (John 15:16) Your faith, and all of the blessing that come from that faith, are God’s eternal gift to you. 2. God chose you, so no charge against you can stick. God sent Jesus to cancel ALL the debts of His chosen ones. Christ Jesus died, was raised, and is now at the right hand of God interceding for you (Rom. 8:31–34). If God is for you, who can be against you?! 3. Being chosen brings humility. “Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this...

You’ve heard it said before, “Yesterday’s Gone, Tomorrow Isn’t Here Yet, All I Have Is Today.” But we actually have a little more and that is, with God’s help, “I CAN Do Better Today!” I can’t change the failures of yesterday and I can’t say for sure I’ll be here tomorrow, but with God’s help I’m positive, “I Can Do Better Than Yesterday!” Here’s the Word: “I PRESS on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus!” (Phil. 3:14)...
