Hello God are you there

Have you ever had those real life moments when you ask the question "Hello God are you there?" For so many of us as pastors, ministers, leaders and people in general this is a real question. As a pastor and a disciple in the body of Christ I have to admit that I never really want to divulge those moments of insecurity and silence that occur in my life. Lets be real for a moment nobody wants to hear that there Pastor has not heard from God lately, heck I don't want to tell people that and I am sure that Pastors across the world if reading this are like " boy you need to shush! can't let nobody know that." But real has to be real all the time. There are silent moments and insecurities in everyones abilities to hear God. The reality is that we serve a God whose mind is so immense that to hear him all the time, it would fill us beyond our own capacity and we would overload and implode. I believe that often times those silent moments are those moments that God is sitting back in the cut watching to see if we have been listening to him. When Job has to deal with all he has to deal with; you know Satan attacking all that he had, he was in a silent moment with God. He was crying out to the Lord and there was no response and the real of it was that it made him feel as though he had done something wrong. That is why we find Job in sackcloth and ashes; that is a state of repentance, and even though he asserts that he has done nothing wrong he is not sure. God is just sitting back in the cut seeing what is going to be his respond. Is Job going to live up to the expectations that I have for during this time of trial and tribulation. It is this same God that we serve, the God at the strangest and sometime most stressful moments, will lay in the cut and observe what is going to be their response. Bishop Neil Ellis once said "A Faith that has not been tested is a faith that can not be trusted." It is in these moments of silence when your faith and your trust in the Lord needs to manifest and you keep moving in the direction of his Glory. God silence is that opportunity for you to excel in doing His will with excellence.
The word of God declares "...A time to be quiet and a time to speak. (Ecclesiastes 3:7 NLT)" God shares His wisdom with Solomon and the truth of Gods character is that He will pour into us what is not in Him. I am not surprised any more or fearful in the silent moments. Do they frustrate me, yes. Do they make me slightly hesitant, yes. Do they send me into moments of repentance, yes. But in those moments I need to hear from the Master, in those moments of silent testing, in the moments of trepidation, depression, pain, fear, lack, want; I can still find joy, peace, kindness, love and power in Not only His written word but in the fact that the testing of my faith produces patience and when patience has it's perfect work, I shall be lacking in nothing. "hello God are you there...thank you for my silent times."

What can I say, Sunday August 7, 2011 @10:30 the city if Mobile and I believe the world will be shaken for the cause of Christ. I have done all the preparation that I can do, I have dotted my T and crossed my I and in all of that I realize that without Jesus I would surely fail. John 15:5 says this "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." there is not a truer statement in the word of God. Without the master I can not nothing. I remember what life was like pre-salvation, and believe me when I say it was not pretty. But since that time I have come to realize that he is my all and my everything that without Him I am nothing; I can say this 'My best days in the world, pale in comparison to my worst days with Christ'. I absolute love what God has done in and around my life and I am so thankful that God chose me to Glorify him. So here we go world...BELIEVER LIFE is LAUNCHING......GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, PRAISE  HIM, PRAISE HIM PRAISE HIM PRAISE HIM, HALLELUJAHHALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH  MIGHTY IS YOU NAME O LORD MIGHT IS THE WORKS OF YOU HANDS I LOVE YOU FATHER I LOVE YOU DADDY I LOVE YOU ABBA I LOVE YOU HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH  GLORY........

Two days until the launch of Believers LIFE ministries. Well the time just keeps creeping along as we inch closer and closer to our Aug 7 launch.  I have been working diligently on the first series of messages to be preached at Believers LIFE. This first Series will be "Let There be Light"

  1. The Break Through Of Light 
  2. The Dominion Of Light 
  3. The Light Of Worship
  4. The Light Of His Creation
We have been in a time of prayer and fasting, for the Glory of God to be manifest, for His power to empower us, for spiritual awakening and revival and for spiritual, mental and physical strongholds to be broken. As I read the Word of God, I see a clear patter of revelation in the Word that declares that we are so much greater than what we often times give ourselves credit for. God see us in a much bigger way then we see our selves. God declares that in Jesus we are the very righteousness of God, He declares that we are the head and not the tail that we are above and not beneath, that we are mighty and powerful to the pulling down of strongholds. We have to become everything that the Word of God declares that we are. 
The break through of light deals with the creative power of God that created something good that had never been see before. The very existence of of the spoken work of God changes the very essence of the thing that God is speaking so. When God speaks to light he speaks a manifold blessing over all of creation. If the light does not come to pass nothing can survive in the absolute darkness. Everything that God creates after the light  needs that very light to service....Just a taste....come by Believers LIFE in Sunday or catch us in on our podcast Sunday night....God bless you.

Three days until the launch of Believers LIFE Ministries. I was out walking today passing out door hangers to invite the community to come and worship with us. As I was walking and praying, praying and walking, I keep thinking to myself "I have to make This thing work" and in the mist of my thoughts God said son you can not make anything work. all that you are And all that will happen is not up to you. And that is the reality of Christian life Every thing is in the hands of the master. the Word of God declares that the battle is not ours but the Lords. We have to do the work but the results of our work are blessing that God showers upon us, and like grace those blessing and unearned and unmerited. We do the work because we love the God of all creation and we want to see those who do not have a relationship with the Master brought into a lasting and living relationship with him. I continued walking hanging Door hangers and speaking to those who were outside not because I had to make it work but because i was working for the Lord. Just three (3) days until launch and I am on tip toe anticipation expecting and mighty move of God. be blessed, be powerful, be loved, be blessed.

Four days until the Launch of Believers LIFE ministries. What a roller coaster ride of emotions, i have experienced in this day alone great anticipation, nervousness, excitement, fear, joy and almost every other emotion that you can imagine. But in all that I have been feeling the overwhelming emotions is thankfulness and gratefulness. I all of my prayers I have found myself in the intense throws of gratefulness and thankfulness. God chose me amongst all of his faithful followers and entrusted me with a vision, a plan , and a purpose and the reality is that, I know who I am and the things that I have done, I k ow that only a few short years ago I was baptized and Holy Ghost filled. I have only been a Christian for 14 years, I was a heathen for A much longer time, and the truth of the matter I am still a sinner. But Gods timing and frame work of time is not our timing or framework. God just looks at us and says I do not care about your past I see greatness in your future. then he looks at some and thinks; maybe just maybe He is just crazy enough to do exactly what I told him. And I was. And for that I am thankful, because the reality of God is that he is looking for some people that will be crazy and radical for him. God has always looked at us and said to himself can I find someone that will take just 300 and fight 100,000; can I find someone that will stand in the fires of a furnace just to be faithful to me; can I fund someone who will lead 2,000,000 + people into a desert wilderness. I am not saying I am a biblical patriarch, but I am saying one day I hope to be counted coo-coo for Jesus. I want people to try to keep me from getting out of the boat. you know that the other disciples had to be grabbing at Peters cloak as he climbed over the railing of the boat; his brother had to have tried to stop him, or they all would have been out there walking in water. I am excited , nervous, joyfully and plain scared, but more than anything LORD I am willing. That is a place I believe we all have to be willing to do the insane for JESUS.

Five days until the launch of Believers LIFE Ministries. For months it has seemed to be as if the hands on the clock were moving at light speed; only to have this week slow to a crawl. We are excited by the opportunity to minister to people, and touch them with the love of Christ. I was reading this week a Facebook post by a friend and he said something that I am going to incorporate into my every day ministry and walk with Christ; he said As he was out evangelizing that he was trying to be the Church with feet. Church with feet, is such a simple yet profound quality. The truth of the Gospel and the mandate that we have is to take the gospel to the furthest parts of the world. We are incorporating this phrase into a ministry "The Church With Feet". The word of God says in Isaiah 52:7 "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
I want to have beautiful feet so when the Lord looks at me he will say well done. Shout out to Pastor Dion thanks for the inspiration.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 NLT)

Six days until the official launch of Believers LIFE ministries. We have done a lot of prayer and preparation, but we are now at the place were the rubber meets the road. We are so excited and nervous at the same time, but we know what the WORD declares and this week is a week that we are seeking for the Holy Ghost power to fall. We hit the streets past weekend evangelizing and passing out worship with us cards and there is culture that is hungry for a real Word that is presented without pretense or pointing fingers. It has been heavy on my heart that Jesus never pointed the finger at the sinner, he had more condemnation for those religious icons of the time. His relationship with sinners was one of Love and guidance did he condone sin; Never. I talked with young men and young women that were glad that I was out there just taking the time on a Saturday night to walk up and down the club strip to talk to people because they matter. So as we move in on this launch date rapidly approaching, I pray that the Holy Ghost falls and that the spirit of Christ would rest so heavy upon Believers LIFE that who so ever would come and be transformed into empowered people living empowered lives.
