Message From The Clouds

A difference! 

It is often said what a difference a day makes! Yes, but have you taken on the thought of that mentality of changing it yourself? The same days come each week, but something happens differently each week on the same day but we don't always preplan for these things to happen on these particular days; but we can make a difference in the day by doing something different, that will make it different not just for ourselves but for others as well. One day it is raining with lightning and thunderstorms, one day cool and cloudy, and today it is sunny, clear and warm; so those days when it seems it will not stop raining, there is one day that it is going to be so hot that we wish it would rain!. Our lives are the same, whatever we did last Wednesday, we don't have to do it today because it is Wednesday. We all have the opportunity to live life differently if we choose; you may not know God right now, but that does not mean you can't get to know him, one day we are a sinner but we don't have to stay that way, God is still saving, healing, and delivering, and we don't have to be the same from one day to the next. Psalm 118:24 says;This is the day which the Lord has brought about; we will rejoice and be glad in it. AMPC. You make the difference in the day the Lord has given you, by giving yourself to him.

Sad or Happy? 

Right now there is a Coronavirus in the United States, this virus has attacked countries, states, cities, towns and communities; It has caused an epidemic, pandemic, and a famine all in one, Lockdowns, curfews, closures of businesses, schools, even churches, we as a people have been told that we are to stay out of crowds, no more than ten people together at one time and six feet apart, but I know in this God has not left us alone. He is the same God that he's always been, and as painful as the deaths maybe, God is good! and that should make us happy. We should choose Philippians 4:8 Now my friends, I want to say this to you. Fill your minds with thoughts about good things. Think about things that are true, clean, right and lovely. Always think about things which people know are very good. (EASY) If we want to leave the sad behind, we have to start thinking happy! God will get the glory out of this. 

Fearful 

To fear or not to fear; Proverbs 9: 10 says The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding, so what this means is to be afraid of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and if you know God you will be wise. The situation that has taken place over the last few days about the Coronavirus has increased fear in the hearts of people, but not just any people, but the people that call on his name. Let us not allow the epidemic and pandemic to turn into a famine, continue to praise, honor, worship and stand on the word of God, we cannot  forget to put your trust in God instead of man, because our faith has no place for the enemy's fear. Fear the Lord and be wise! 

The Atmosphere 

Can you feel it? Can you sense it? not the rain coming, people political agendas, vacations, spring cleaning, or special program time. It is time to set ourselves up for what will happen next, and that starts with setting the atmosphere within us. What takes place on the inside of us has a way of affecting what goes on around us. Worship, Prayer, Praise, will lift you up, but it will also help you lift someone else up. Our own atmosphere is important to everyone that you come in contact with, helping us make the right decisions, a good attitude creates the atmosphere for us to be like Christ. If our mood is better we perform better in all areas of our lives, dispositions, conversations, and manners. Set the atmosphere in your life, and in doing so you maybe setting it up for someone else.

Alone 

It is amazing that there are so many people in the world and we can still find ourselves alone, we have access to malls full of people, coworkers on our jobs, people at church, going to all kinds of stores, social media, family, and yet we find ourselves alone. The word alone is defined as having no one else present. How can a person be with some one and yet be by themselves? I believe this can happen to any of us, and because it does, it makes us unaware of others feelings because of what we think and even though a person is not alone in the natural with a lot of people, they still can be. It is sad, but true; God help us to know that we can always be in your presence and not be alone. Deuteronomy 31:6 GNB Be determined and confident . Do not be afraid of them. Your God, the Lord himself, will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you. Never Alone!

Speak! 

Say it out! We are always encouraging others to speak; because we were taught as a child that when someone spoke to you, you speak back to them, and we sometimes will come across someone that will not speak back to us even though you speak to them, it will happen because they don't hear you or simply choose not to, but you cannot make anyone speak back to you, or get mad because they didn't. It is on us all to do the right thing, God loves it when we talk to him, but even more so he welcomes the opportunity for us to speak to him. Isaiah 43:26 says Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that mayest be justified. This morning, I began to speak his word to him, but I did not only recognize what I needed to say, but welcomed and embraced it so that I could do it, and open myself up to him, surrender to him so that he would in turn speak to me. We have a right to speak! God has given us a voice, use it to speak to him.

 

Praise and Worship -For 2/19/2020 

Give it up! The mindset of the world today is to give something so that you can get something, one thing should not be given up for that reason, but given freely out of your own hearts desire. This morning I got a chance to receive something that I did not expect back, asked or looked for, but it was given to me, and I did not plan to have it go out and return to me in this particular way.  I began to pray and as I began to surrender and letting go, praise and worship took over in me, such a release was uttered from my spirit of how much I loved the Lord, and what he is to me that the psalmist came forth and what I felt on the inside came with words that were formed in my heart. Praise and worship to God will allow you to sing a song that the angels cannot sing. Give Him you and He will give you back what you need.

What's best?-For 2/12/2020 

Who else would know? There are some that say and think that we do not need any rain and may ask God when is all of this going to stop, just looks like it will be a rainy month like it was last month, but we can do nothing about that. God knows what we need when we need it, and we can trust him to handle it. Gen 1:1 says; In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Who else  would know about what we need other than the creator? He is the only one that knows the future of when rain will come and also when it will not but we trust him with whatever comes, he will see us through. Who else has the count of the number of hairs on our heads, the ones that come out in a comb? I thank God that he does not work on our time, we are naturally selfish and would hold things back from others that we did not like; but with the Lord there is no respecter of persons. Yes! God knows all, and he knows it well. 

Heart Fixer-For 2/5/2020 

Lord, Operate! Yesterday my brother-n-love had open heart surgery, if you have never had your heart opened up and exposed, well its about time. How much can you carry inside year after year and your life not be affected? Sooner or later we all will have a problem, if we know that hatred , backbiting, jealousy, lust, pride and covetousness as sins that affect our heart, as do gluttony. We think of big sins that others see instead of what we think of as little sins that we hide from others. Heart doctors can fix the natural heart, but we need the heavenly Father to fix the sin n our hearts, and that too begins healing by the same way, going to the doctor, the heart doctor or the great physician first by repentance.

Come and Hear!-For 1/29/2020 

Open your spiritual ears! Have you ever been made aware of your five senses? I am overjoyed that God has given me the ability to not only see but hear as well!  We place a lot of emphasis on being able to see in this decade but the sense of hearing is very very important because we cannot follow God with our natural eyes. Romans 10: 16-17 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Many of the household of faith are confused because they are looking at what others are doing and copying what looks good to their eyes rather than listening to what the Spirit is saying to the church. Jeremiah 2:4 says Hear ye the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel. Hearing from God allows us to see him, instead of vice versa, but we cannot live by faith f we have to see if first, and being able to hear from God  will allow us to have the ability to know his voice and who he is.
