Stick With the Plan The Right Tool For the Job # 247
The Holy Spirit is a genius. In any situation, He knows exactly what revelation to bring to help you. Today, let’s call that heavenly revelation, the right tool for the job. A task is so much easier when you have the right tool. You can finish efficiently in less time and without causing more damage. Your heart is like a tool shed, one you’ve filled with preaching notes, devotions, prayers, and worship songs. I see it like this, the Holy Spirit points out to you the right tool or revelation within your heart. The right tool is the revelation you need in the moment. Join me at Lowe’s Home Improvement store as we discuss this truth!
Stick With the Plan - Unclogged # 246
Feeling spiritually clogged? My kitchen sink was clogged the other night. And I had the bright idea to go find a plunger to try to solve the problem. The plunger looked clean enough, so I thought I’ll give it a try. As I begin to plunge that sink, I noticed that plunger wasn’t clean at all. In fact leftover debris started coming out of the plunger. It seems like a disaster. Yet, I kept plunging away at the drain. Finally, there was a breakthrough! I heard the water beginning to go down. What seemed like a mess to me could be solved as easily as the water was able once again to flow. You were not made to clogged up with your past! In the NLT Isaiah 43:18 reads like this, “But forget all that- is it NOTHING compared to what I am going to do.” God has BIG plans for you, but it will take you letting go of the clogs from your past so you can receive the new thing God is doing in your life!
Stick with the Plan Make Room # 245
People are hungry for a move of God. Recently, on a Live Broadcast, the viewers started requesting prayer to have a God encounter in their lives and families. What sparked this interest was, I was telling testimonies of miracles and times of being in the presence of God. Sharing those experiences inspired a passion within them that they too desired to experience God in such a real and powerful way. The Holy Spirit is real and He is wanting to move in our lives to show God’s tremendous love and ability. It is our responsibility to Make ROOM for Him. That means God’s not going to interrupt your Netflix binge. But He will interrupt your prayer time, devotion reading, and worship time to pull you even closer to Him. God wants to continually show Himself strong to you. Let this video inspire you to decide today, I’m making room for more of God in my life.
Stick with the plan Love like an Ocean # 244
In traffic recently traveling from Charleston, SC to Hilton Head Island, I was tempted to get frustrated. What should have been a two hour trip turned into a four hour trip because it was a busy 4th of July weekend. I stopped into a McDonald’s for a rest and sweet teas for my kids. This place was slower than Christmas. We just needed 4 large cups for the drink station and I would have been out of there. No one would hand me the cups. Ten minutes past, as I felt my patience leaving, an angry woman runs in and yells at the employees for leaving out her McChicken sandwich. She is telling them, “This is the worst McDonalds ever!” That’s exactly what I wanted to say. But I so glad I didn’t. Seeing someone react without love towards others is ugly. I remembered, once you have received Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life there is a heart change within you. The word of God explains how now God’s love has flooded your heart through the Holy Spirit. You can now love the unlovable even when you don’t feel it. We know that God is love and your faith works by love, knowing this will place the importance on your ability to love others. Even when they forget your McChicken. Lol
Stick with the Plan - Flip the Switch # 243
I was preparing to speak at our church’s youth camp last week. In prayer, the Lord showed me a heart that looked like it had a switch on it. As if, you could turn the switch off and on. The Lord began to tell me if you could get the youth to flip the switch on or in other words, open their heart up to God, He would reveal Himself to them. He would give them a God encountered that would change their lives forever. No one can ever take that experience from you. The place where you discover God is real and He loves you. We prayed that each youth would have such a know-so experience that even if they never read the Bible they would know there is a God. Be inspired today to open up, flip the switch on in your heart to see God show up in a major way in your life.
Stick with the Plan Maintain Your Mouth
There is a maintenance that needs to be done on your mouth, just like you maintain your car to keep it running strong. You keep your mouth maintained by speaking or confessing the word of God. The Bible says your confession is made into your salvation. That means whatever you are speaking, that’s exactly what you’ll have. Your words rule you. That’s why we are instructed by God to speak life. If you don’t like what your life looks like right now, then change what you’ve been saying. In this video, learn how to check up on your words to maintain your faith confession to have the promises of God in your life.
Stick with the Plan Never Too Broken
You are never too broken to be used of God. Jesus restored some of the most broken people who became witnesses of Him. Jesus set Mary Magdala free from seven devils. She became one Jesus’ most devoted followers. He didn’t consider her as damaged but very valuable in spreading the gospel. My mother-in-law, Mary Ann Adkins, came from an abusive home. She ministered with such confidence and power it was hard to believe she came from such a destructive background. In today’s video, be inspired to leave your brokenness in the past and more forward in God’s purpose for you.
Stick with the Plan Statying Power # 240
Your faith has staying power to outlast the devil. Many times in life, the enemy tries to apply so much stress, you’ll give up. He never wants you to discover the power on the other side of that pressure. His trick is to get you to quit before you see the breakthrough. Be encouraged today knowing God’s grace is more that enough. Your faith will see you through to your answer. God will never leave you and He’s not afraid of your mess. Refuse to quit and see God’s strength come upon you.
Stick with the plan What Would It Take For You To Quit? # 239
My husband asked me this last week, “What would it take to get you to quit?” I thought about it, what could happened that would make me want to give up on God’s calling on my life? One reason could be my family & friends stop believing in me and leave. His point for asking me that question was get me to settle it in my heart that nothing can get me to quit. The truth is, no matter what happens the only thing that will satisfy your soul is doing the will of God. Be like the Apostle Paul, who was stoned and left for dead. After he healed up, Paul went right back into the same city to preach again. Let’s decide today, nothing can get us to stop doing what God has asked of us. We will not quit!
Stick with the Plan - Vantage Point of faith # 238
What you see is what you believe. You were made that way. The enemy knows this. We see in the Bible in the book of Numbers 13, 12 spies were sent to report on the Promised Land. They gave two very different reports concerning the same land. There were 10 spies who only saw the giants and 2 spies that only saw the blessings in the land. The two spies were Joshua & Caleb. They saw with the eyes of their heart or the eyes of faith. This vantage point of sight allows you to see God as well able to give you the land. Be encouraged today to see with the eyes of your heart, it’s your vantage point of faith. What you see is what you believe. You were made that way. The enemy knows this.

Stick with the Plan - Your Testimony # 237
One of the most powerful things you can share with someone is your story. You can inspire someone’s faith to believe God by sharing what He has done for you. Not only does your testimony encourage others, it is essential for defeating the enemy. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” (Revelation 12:11 NKJV) By declaring the victory through the blood of Jesus and sharing your testimony, you have the powerful to overcome any situation.
Stick with the Plan The Dogs May Bark # 236
People matter, but opinions contrary to the heart of God do not! When asked how he handled all of the criticism, Oral Robert’s responded, “The dogs will bark, but the train keeps rolling.” The church leaders criticized Oral Robert’s message of God is good and the devil is bad. Sickness is of the devil. He made it simple for the people to understand. People with a critical spirit had a hard time receiving from Jesus. My husband Jay always says, “You can always spot a Pharisee. He’s the one standing on the sideline criticicizing the guy who’s helping people.” Be inspired today, you’re called to be an encourager not a critic.
