Family Order...
Seek 1st the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.! Sometimes we get it all out of order the priorities in our lives but when the winds of storm arise it shouldn't take us long to cry out... JESUS SAVE US!
We got some bad reports from tumors in Andy's knee, Sandy had a mass, Luke with spiritual problems, Katie lost her dog, Mary... she is the nun she is always on her game... NOT! Lol... I think you get the picture... the enemy started his bombing raid but Jesus showed he really is stripped of his power. We got good reports all around and MOVING FORWARD!
What do you do when you get hit from every side? I am so thankful today to know the saving benefits of the gospel. Jesus 1st, Sandy 2nd... kids third, ministry comes later. they work together but when the storm comes it is imperative to stand firm, confess the WORD, pray without ceasing, do spiritual warfare and bind the devil, cast him out when he brings 7 spirits more wicked, do all you need to do to get and stay free. Did I say repent/humble yourself? reevaluate your life, your daily walk with the Lord... let the light of the Holy Spirit shine into your heart to reveal things that need to be changed and revive things that need to come alive again that will bring forth life and life more abundantly. Check the attitude, ask forgiveness, take Communion... this leagal action that thwarts the enemies access. oh come on this is good stuff...
Today we are free by His grace and mercy. In Him, JESUS, we live and move and have our being.

Times of Refreshing...

The times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord. The past few years I have been able to attend Perry Stone's annual campmeeting in Dalton, GA. and what a refreshing I get when I go. Perry and Pam do such a great job of hosting these meetings as people come from everywhere to hear the incrdeible teaching and annointed preaching from Perry and other ministers. I got to know Perry through my ole missions running buddy Rusty Domingue as we rendevous @ Perry's meeting to get some Holy Ghost touch on our lives. These meetings are special and God has always moved in a special way for me personally to receive refreshing from heaven.

Leaders need to do like Jesus did by going to the mountain or hanging by the seas shore to seek God. This allows God to change us and give us fresh vision for the mission he has for our life individually. Wow it was tweet @ Perry's and the Lord again confirmed a double portion blessing for the nations in my life. Come on Lord Jesus... refresh us to win the lost of the world.

Run the Race!

I got the invite from Pastor Jerry Stone to attend the Lowe's 500 in Charlotte this past weekend and what a race it was... this was my 2nd NASCAR race to attend as I have been a fan for quite a few years. I love the #24 car driven by Jeff Gordon... and I as the race keeps you sitting on edge for 4 plus hours my main man Gordon continued his championship run with an exciting sprint @ the finsih to win the race.

This made me think of the race we are in to reach heaven. Paul wrote in I Corinthians 9:24 to run the race that we may obtain the prize. He gives us some insight on the next few verses for keys to make sure we "git er done". Check this out... strive for mastery or be a professional Christian. kind of like a professional race car driver. These guys are exact in the details to be under control in the race to position themselves to win/finish the race. Wow I was so blessed as I got to go into the garage area where after long tedious hours of preparation they rolled those perfect machines out to do battle on the long road. I think you get the picture... prepare well to finish well and watch out for those wrecks and spinouts... lol!

Th race was super cool and kudos to Pastor Jerry fand Bojangels Fried Chicken for the invite allowing me to tag along! Git er done... Daylight's Burning!
