Miracles, Signs and Wonders!!!

Matthew 13:58 says: And he did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Jesus stopped doing miracles and wonders because the people did not believe.  Has Jesus stopped doing miracles and wonders through us, simply because we don't choose to believe that He can?

We pray, but are we praying with power and convictions? We have power in us to do great things; we have dunamis power (sign, miracles and wonders).  John 14:12 says: "Very truly I tell you, who ever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. "

I believe God is leading us into a time of REVIVAL like we have never known and He wants to do miracles through His people. It's time to completely surrender to Him. We must believe!

Let's put our trust and confidence in God and His power; so that He will continue to do great wonders in the lives of His people.

Let us surrender ourselves and allow God to stretch us like never before.  We must allow God to take us beyond our comfort zone.Let's surrender ourselves to the work of the Lord in our lives and choose to be amazed by the power of God displayed.

Acts 1:8 says:  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Walk in His Power, seeking signs, miracles and wonders.

The Power of Praise

There are times when we feel so defeated, so beat up by life, attacks and even disappointments.  That we believe we just don't have the spiritual strength to give God sincere praise.  And beloved, that is just what Satan is counting on; his plan is to wear us down to the point where we have no desire to praise God because of our frustrations.

You see Satan realizes that there is great power in our praise and if he can keep us down and frustrated, to the point where we are unable to give praise to our God; he has won a major feat. Your praise is something that you simply cannot give up no matter what! Not only does it help you to combat the enemy, it also empowers you and gives you great strength. Singing a song from your heart will give a tremendous boost to your spirit.

Have you ever been there? Problems so overwhelming, you begin to feel low and burdened. Then all of a sudden a song comes from no where, you begin to sing unto God and before you know, you have been uplifted and encouraged within. That is the power of a song and the power of your praise.

In 2 Chronicles 20 a great army rose against King Jehosphat and his people. Jehosophat was afraid but he went to the Lord and prayed.  He declared a fast throughout the land.  All the people came out and stood before the Lord, praying for His deliverance.  As they were praying, the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel and he began to speak: "Listen, this is what the Lord says, do not be afraid, don't be discouraged.  For the battle is not yours, but the Lord's; you will have no need to fight, set yourselves and watch, God will deliver you." The Lord told them exactly where the enemy was camping, God told them where to go and what to do.

Then King Jehosophat appointed sings to lead the army, he told them to praise the beauty of the Lord and say: Praise the Lord, for His mercy endureth for ever. As they marched out and they began their shouts and praises, the Lord set ambush against the enemy and they began to fight themselves. The enemy helped Judah destroy them. They had the victory!

But, it all began with a shout, it began with their praise.  Remember how God used a shout, not the weapons of man to destory the walls of Jericho.  In the midst of your trials and tribulations, no matter how difficult they are, find the strength to lift up a praise to our mighty God.  Because there is power in your praise; give God your best Hallelujah! You and I are destined for greatness!  We must always hold on to our hope, our heart and our hallellujah!

Then God will reveal that He was in control all along!  Remember, the power of our praise!

Everyone Must Help!!!

No matter who you are, your background, your economic status, your religious beliefs, everyone must help with the fight against Human Trafficking.  This Saturday in Riverside, CA, our Organization the Women's Worshipfest will host a Donation Drive in order to raise funds in our fight against Human Trafficking.  We are partnering with Goodwill and Jamba Juice and they will give funds toward our fight against Human Trafficking. If you are in the Riverside area this Saturday, please meet us at the New Hope Baptist Church, 19320 Spalding Avenue. Please bring a bag of unwanted items for the drive; what you don't want, we certainly do. 

The purpose of this donation drive is to help us raise awareness, educate and support those who are out there in the trenches everyday, reaching out to those who are trapped. We are blessed to work with a Missionary from Paris, France "Sarah-jane" she left everything in France to come out and help with this great cause.  So many people are joining in to help where they can, what about YOU?

This week we will launch a new movement: "LET IT BE ME"!!! It has been a tremendous move on my heart to do all I can to stand up and fight against this major injustice in Human Trafficking.  When the Women's Worshipfest took on the mantle to raise the awareness of Human Trafficking in the United States, we found many people were not aware of Human Trafficking had trapped man young boys, girls, women and men, right here in the United States. Many people that we have encountered have shook their heads and uttered the words: "That's A Shame!"

But now we have several questions before us, who will shine a light on the Human Trafficking right in our back yard? Who will take a stand against this injustice that so many people face? Who will do all they can to help those suffering. I am ready to answer: "LET IT BE ME"!!! And I am asking everyone to join me and to do what they can.  You may not be able to do much, but we can all do something!

Join us, stand with us and get ready to help those need! In the history of our Nation there have been so many rights violated, so many injustices, yet there were always great leaders to rise, stand and become the voice for those who were able to do so on there own.  What we face today is a greater battle than any other slavery we have had in our history; there are 27 million people trapped in this Modern Day Slavery. Let's not stop the fight to they are free, won't you join us and say: Let It Be Me!!!!
