Be Encouraged

In light of the evil that is occurring in our nation, be encouraged. God is still in control.

37 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.

18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

Righteous versus Unrighteous: Psalm 1:1-6

 Walk in the law of God and be blessed. In Christ, there is eternal life whereas out of Christ there is eternal separation from God our creator, and sustainer.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

“Follow peace with all men”: Hebrews 12:14


Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:


I am making a clarion call for a prayer asking God for peace, love, and tolerance. I make this request because there are too much hatred and violence being played out daily. There appears to be a dark cloud of evil hanging over our country, and this storm cloud of hatred must move.


All humanity was created in God's image and likeness, and we all breathe the same air. That said, we are all Americans in this country, and we must learn to live together in love, peace, and compassion. All of the hatred is not who we are as a country. Yes, there has always been violence in this country, but not to the magnitude that it is now. I constantly ask myself why and what or where did we as a country go wrong? Have we left God out of our lives and replaced Him with Satan? I may not have the answers, but I do know that prayer changes things. When we come together in sincere prayer, God moves on our behalf. There has to be a healing of this nation (2 Chronicles 7:14).


The God in us is much bigger than the god of this world; that said, all Americans will come together to move the hatred and violence and restore it with love, peace, and harmony.

GHWP Sales 1


Sing Praises to God: Nehemiah 9:6 NIV

 You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.

It is good to praise God for who He is and what He has done and continues to do in the lives of humanity. Why do we worship God? We praise Him because it is He, and He alone created the heavens and the earth. We praise God because all of His creations obey His commands. We praise God because all of humanity is created in the image and likeness of God. Breathing the breath of life into the man he became a living soul. We praise God because all believers have His Spirit, the Holy Spirit living inside of us.

We praise God because He is a shelter in the time of a storm. We praise Him because He is faithful to His promise of never to leave nor forsake His own.

We praise God because of His love, grace, and mercy. His mercy is in the form of Jesus Christ, who took our unrighteousness and gave us His righteousness. In doing so, all who believe in Jesus and accept Him as our personal Savior have eternal life.

I (we) join the heavenly multitude in singing praises to the Almighty God, who is supreme above all other gods and is worthy of all praises, glory, and honor.

Lord, we praise You. We love You and glorify Your holy name.

 Good morning world; Today is another great day that God has blessed us with. Let us rejoice and be glad in this day.

We rejoice in this and each day because God's love surrounds us; His grace covers and His mercy suits us.

Without God we are nothing, but with God, we are all that He wants us to be.

Father God, we praise You, we adore You, and we worship You.

Faith and Patience: 1 Samuel 13:8-14; Job

 My heart is heavy with concern for our nation as it is moving forward in reopening many establishments, and the results are many are testing positive for the virus.

This lack of patience is having dire consequences with a constant rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths. This lack of patience and no faith in science, our leaders are putting all Americans at-risk and a prolonged economic disaster.

A major university was forced to close because many of its students tested positive for the virus. It is believed that many other colleges and universities will follow the same pattern. As our k-12 schools prepare to reopen, this question comes to mind, how safe are the schools for the children, teachers, and support staff? There are too many unknowns to take unnecessary chances with people’s lives.

I get the fact that there is a need for income to continue, but while the government is providing funds, provide enough to see families and businesses through this pandemic until it is safe to reopen the country, and for those frontline workers reward them with hazard pay.

Health, safety, and the well-being of our citizens must be first and foremost on the minds of our leaders. I encourage our leaders and decision-makers to reframe from Saul-like patience. Saul was too impatient to wait until the Prophet Samuel arrived to pronounce his blessing upon the task that was at hand (vv13-14); instead have Job’s patience, who was rewarded with more than what he lost because of his faith and patience. America will reopen stronger than before. Patience is a virtue.

Join me tonight on Zoom for a further discussion on Faith and patience.

Be Encouraged

 Isaiah 40:31But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.

Be encouraged; God is near and He is our strength when we are weak.

God's Watchful Eye

 Under the all-seeing eyes of God.

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. But the Lord turns His face against those who do evil (1 Peter 3:12).

God First: Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

Our scripture text asks us to put God first by seeking the kingdom of God, and all else will be added unto us. In doing, we are humbling ourselves before our sovereign God and His righteousness. God is true to His promise to supply all of our needs according to His righteousness through His Son Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:16). God is true to His word, and there is no failure in Him.

Another school of thought on seeking the kingdom of God first is because earthly things are going to pass away, whereas heavenly things are eternal just as God is. Through our scripture text, God is trying to refocus our attention on Him and His righteousness, and He will add our earthly things. God’s provisional care is unmatched with anything we may attempt to provide. Therefore, cast all of your cares upon Him (Psalm 55:22), and leave our worries behind. We cannot solve the problem; only God can.

Comments are welcome.

The trying of Your Faith and Patience: James 1:3; Galatians 6:9

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.

I begin this message with this question, what do you do when your faith and patience is being tried?  For me, I turn to the scriptures where I find solace, and then I go to God in prayer, asking Him to take the reins of the situation.  I recommend seeking God in prayer and reading and meditating on the scriptures.

There are many reasons why our faith and patience are tried, and sometimes they tested beyond our limits. What does the scripture say in this situation? Ecclesiastes 7:8 says, Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. What is means is that even though something may begin by being troublesome, but we if endure until the end, then victory is sweet because the results of accomplishing the assigned task are our goal. Proverbs 15:18 states the A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeases strife. This tells me that hate and anger and even jealousy can come from different angles, but what we must do is recognize that this is the work of Satan. We must take a deep breath as we give the situation to the Lord and ask God for His peace during this faith-testing and patience trying process, and let Him work out the situation.

Let us walk in the Spirit of the Lord because, in this life, we will encounter trials that will try our patience. We can and will complete the task/journey if we take the Lord with us.
