Let HIM be in control!

Time and time again we try to handle situations on our own.

So with that being said... We have to STOP this cycle and let Him take control!!

Brother's & Sister's in Christ have you ever been at a point in your life where you have sleepless nights? Do you try to focus on living your life but all you can think about is what your next move must be in order to stay afloat? Or do you even try to find gimmicks to help in financial situations in your life and it always falls through or is not pleasing in God's eyes? I know I have, on more than one occassion.

We must stay in Prayer. We must continue to Meditate. We must show praise through Song.

When going through all of lifes ups and downs, God said - But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33). This means that when you seek Him... You allow Him to take control. Remember, He wants you to want Him to take control. Trust me! You can't go wrong by doing this.

In 2010 I challange you to let God take control!!!

>>Allow for God to do His will in your life.
>>>Allow God to guide you in the right direction.
>>>>Allow for God to enlarge your territory.


When you let God take control of things in your life, you will see individuals remove themselves from your life. You will see God change the light that you exude. You will notice that God places blessings so eloquently in your way.

So again... I challenge you to.... ...Let God Take Control of You!

Be blessed!

Stick to YOUR Faith!!!

In life you will be placed in unwanted situations. Situations that you didn't ask to be in. You will wonder:

  • 'Why me'?
  • 'When will it be MY turn'?
  • 'Will I be loved'?
  • 'Will I get that...(job, pay increase or opportunity)'?

In all of this we find ourselves wanting more. Grasping for more. But what are we doing in return?

You see... God wants more for us as well. Remember that He is a jealous God. ONE who seeks all the praise and glorifying. Yet we want more. But why? Why do we want more?:

  • Is it because we deserve it? =====> Maybe.
  • Is it because we prayed for it? =====> Possibly.
  • Or is it because we worked for it? =====> Could be!

If this is what you think... that's wrong. We should never do anything with the want or desire for a blessing to follow. We should constantly do His work and have FAITH that He's got our back. Do everything in His name without a tangible want attached.

You have to have FAITH that in your doing His work... He will guide you in the right direction. Even if it doesn't make complete sense to you. Even if you don't understand it even a little bit. You have to trust (thus have FAITH) that He will take care of the rest. He said it in His word... "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16). That means believing without fully understanding sometimes.

Another thing we do that prolongs our 'victories' is not letting God do God. He got this! He got you! He don't need you to help Him be God. He needs you to have everlasting FAITH that you will be okay! AS LONG AS you do His work. Walk in his path. And help everyone along the way.

So if you don't retain anything out of this message... Just have genuine FAITH. With that comes all of your heart needs, wants & desires.
