Read Proverbs 3:1-8

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

Hello family, my family and I were watching a show called air disasters. The show was covering the crash of a Russian passenger plain in 1994. This was a crash that was preventable. Long story short the pilot had allowed his son to sit in his seat, while the son was in his seat the pilot disabled the auto pilot for a few seconds to allow the son to turn the control stick then re engaged the autopilot.

But when the auto pilot re engaged, the son was still turning the control stick so the things did not go back to normal they panicked in the process they lost control of the plane and crashed. The pilots  tried all they knew to do to regain control of the plan fighting it to the end. The Investigators linked up  the clues as to why this crash happened.

Although the autopilot was turned back on it did not have full control of all the systems, that system was the system that controlled the turning of the plane that system was still in control of the boy when things went bad. All the pilots had to do to correct every thing was let go of the control stick and let the autopilot take full control and level the plane.

Sadly we do the same in our own lives. God will have everything running nice then we decide we want to have a little fun and take control when we should not. When we realize the danger we do give control back to God (autopilot) but not full control we keep our hand on the controls fighting what God is trying to fix. He won’t force us to give Him full control, He will take what we give Him although He wants it all. And what we try to do fails or it is not as successful as it could have been.

Just let go!!!! God understands you messed up and you want it to be fixed. Well, let Him fix it! Stop trying to help Him, God don’t need your help you are the one in need of help! God will fix it we just have to let Go and go back to being a passenger.

Morning Coffee 2/25/16 I See (Poem)

the new mc banner

I see… I see… I see that i am not my own, free to roam without any repercussion. All of my actions produce a reaction that will either lead to life or destruction. I see that I cannot escape the responsibility of the calling you placed on my life.

From the day of my birth, You orchestrated my life on this earth. No matter how far I strayed you were able to reign me in. I see… I see… that obedience is necessary! I see that in order for the Jericho wall to fall, i… have to completely surrender my all!

Answering a call to the alter is just an empty parade. It is from the inside out this sinful nature fades. I see… I see lord. Only through you will my life mission be accomplished. Not by my hand but, In your time, In Your strength, In your will, it will be done!

I see and I answer to the things you call me to!         

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/25/16 His Image

the new mc banner

Read Genesis1:25-31

26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” 27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:26-27 NLT

Hello family, God used a good sister to show me this scripture. I have read it many times before, but this time it stood out to me. Those three words “in our image” just let that sink in, let it simmer for a minute. We were designed to be rulers! Rulers submitted to God! We are not designed to be defeated!

Christ came to fix what Adam messed up! Adam surrendered his authority. Read verse 26 again! Adam should have put the serpent in its place! But for one moment he forgot who he was! He forgot the authority and command God gave him! The Commander-in-chief tells the captain of a ship “You have authority over the whole atlantic ocean, north, south, east, and west.” And he says to the captain don’t let anybody in. The moment that captain drops his guard and opens the door for the enemy he has surrendered his authority! Because now the enemy can wreak havoc.

Christ gives us that authority back. He re alines us back into fellowship with God when we surrender our will to him. We get our identity from God, that is why we are nothing without Him! Family we only submit to God! Sin is no longer your master, depression is no longer your master, addiction of every shape and form are no longer you master.

Because we are made in His image, it is through God we over come those things. He will help you just ask him. You are made in his image!

Morning Coffee 2/24/16 The Process

the new mc banner

Read Acts 9:1-12

Watch first: The Karate Kid (2010) – Jacket Scene (PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE)

8 Saul picked himself up off the ground, but when he opened his eyes he was blind. So his companions led him by the hand to Damascus. 9 He remained there blind for three days and did not eat or drink. – Acts 9:8-9 NLT

Hello family, When God is moving us from one stage of our life to the next, He may put us in a holding pattern. There are some things that he needs to pull out of us so we can step into the next season ready to take full advantage of it.

Has God given you a vision? (he has one for all of us). He has shown you your purpose or promised you something. And you say “ok Lord hit me with it!” But instead of dropping that purpose or promise right in your lap, God goes “Mr.Han” on you and tell you to take you jacket on then off. 

Im sure it was not very fun for the karate kid to put a jacket on and then off when he was expecting to become a trained martial artist. And I’m sure it was not fun for Saul (soon to be Paul) be blind and not eat or drink for three days. But that just it! The process it not designed for our entertainment or enjoyment. The process is meant for our progress, for our humbling, for our strengthening. God had to temporally take Saul’s sight so he could see where he truly stood. God had to break Saul’s earthly greatness to show him what true greatness is.

It is only after we have gone through the process we see the need for the process. If Mr Han had put Dre in a completion on day one the boy would have been whipped. The same with us, if God dropped our promise or purpose in our laps on day one we would self-destruct. The process is not for our entertainment, the process is for our progress.

Morning Coffee Revisited 2/24/15 It’s Not Hard To Talk To God

mc

“O  lord, hear me as I pray; pay attention to my groaning. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you.” (Psalm 5:1-2 NLT)

“I will praise you, lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.” (Psalm 9:1-2 NLT)

“O  lord, why do you stand so far away? Why do you hide when I am in trouble?” (Psalm 10:1 NLT)

Hello family. King David talked to God a lot! We can see this from all the psalms he wrote. David didn’t just write these psalms because it sounded nice! No! He wrote from his heart, he wrote out of his emotion! There were times he wrote out of joy (Psalm 9), times he wrote out of distress (Psalm 10 and 5). These Psalms are direct communication with God. David let his emotion show, but he always did it with reverence to God.

If we are upset it is ok to let God know. If we are sad we are free to tell God. In our emotion, we must still reverence God. He is our father and he cares about all that affects us. God has his ear open listening for His children. Just as simply as a child calls on their earthly father, we too can call on God our heavenly Father.

It is not hard to talk to God.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/22/16 Shift!

the new mc banner

Read Genesis 12:1-7

1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. – Genesis 12:1 NLT

Hello family, In order to bring us to the next level in our walk with Him, God will cause a shift in our lives. Abram (soon to be Abraham) was doing just fine right where he was. He definitely was not lacking, he had his family around him and things were great as they were, so why move? Why? Because God is shifting him!

Our cars have gears each one has a different point at which it engages. If you have a car with a top speed of 200 Mph You will need to shift gears to get to 200, gear one will only get you to 90 Mph, you wont get to 200 Mph just on that gear alone. I know you have become very comfortable where you are, but its time to step up to the next level.

Shifting will also require you to do thing differently than you used to at gear one. You see gear two tops out at 120 mph. You can’t just lean back with one hand on the wheel with your slow jams on. No! At this new level you will need to turn off the slow jams and sit up! Because God has you moving at a more intense speed, you are going to need to be more vigilant looking out for any hazards. The enemy wants to keep you down. More attacks will come be ready for them.

God will also give us direction, and we must be ready to act at a moments notice. If He wants you to replace the time you use to watch you favorite show with quite time with Him, guess what gotta give it up! When we shift up to the next level we can’t do the same thine we did before and expect different results, that is called insanity! God is shifting you, expect the unexpected, be ready to move when He says move, sit up turn off the slow jams and be alert!

Morning Coffee Revisited 2/19/15 Are You Listening?

mc

 

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27 NLT)

Hello family. At the end of “In Transition Morning Coffee 2/17/15” I encouraged you to find a quiet spot and shut everything out and not say anything. In that quiet time, did you hear God speak to you? Did He share anything with you? Did you feel His peace? If yes great, if not you may have been distracted. There have been times God called me to sit quietly in His presence so he could speak with me. But I was distracted, I was distracted by video games, TV, thoughts in my head, the paint pattern on the ceiling! I would wonder why I didn’t hear God! It was because I was not listening! I was like a little kid watching TV while the parent is try to talk to them! The kid may say “okay” and “yes” to every question but they really didn’t hear their parent because they were distracted. So once again there will be no music to listen to. (If you did this the first time and heard God Do it again!) eliminate ALL possible distractions! If you have to get in a closet with the lights out and door shut. Get quiet and listen for God’s still small voice.

Are You Listening?

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/18/16 My Name is__________ And I’m Born For Greatness

the new mc banner

My Name is______________ And I’m Born For Greatness!!!

12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. – John 14:12 NLT

Hello family, Sometimes we don’t see how valuable we are to God. We don’t see the investment, the wealth He placed within us! So when we read scriptures like John 14:12 we don’t fully grasp it for our self.

God is not mediocre, He never has been and never will be. He is always above and beyond what we in our limited minds can think! Here it is in His word, if we follow Him we will do what he has done and even greater things. Give me one good reason why this does not apply to us in 2016!

If you are a follower of Christ, If you have surrendered your life to Him! You are born for greatness! God didn’t save you to warm the church pew! As I said in yesterdays devotion, there are people out there right now that you are destined to minister too! God has invested to much in you for it to go to waste! I want you to print this up and put your name in the blank space in the title. And put it where you will see it every day, to remind you that you were born for greatness in God’s kingdom! MY NAME IS BRANDON! AND I’M BORN FOR GREATNESS!!!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/17/16 He Loves Us Enough To Break Us

the new mc banner

READ JEREMIAH 18

6 “O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand. – Jeremiah 18:6 NLT

Hello family, Some times we get off track from where He wants us to be. And in order to get our attention He will allow situations in our lives to arise to bring us to our knees. This is not because He is power hungry tyrant! That is not who God is at all!

Our heavenly father is a God of Love. He loves us so much that He hand crafted us down to the smallest micron. He gave His one and only son as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. So that we can have a personal one on one relationship with Him. He has a plan for our lives and He wants us to walk it out.

God has a lot invested in us, He wants us to live out Jeremiah 29:11. But we must stay the course. When He see us going astray he will bring us to our knees so we can draw back to Him. He loves us enough to break us! To save us from an end He never intended us to see. He wont leave us broken! He will lift us back up Better than we were before. There are souls out there that He has destined you to minister too and He needs us right in line with Him, Ready when the time comes. If God Did not Love us that much a lot of us (maybe all of us) would not be where we are today!

Much Love & God Bless
