Morning Coffee 10/25/17 This Moment Of Peace

This moment of peace is bought to you by God.

“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line? What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstone as the morning stars sang together and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?” Job 38 4-7 NLT

Hello family, what if God removed his hand from your life? Let’s take it a step further what if he looked at this universe He created and said “i’m done! To hell with all of this!” If the Alpha and Omega turned his back and let chaos reign. It would make the little bit of chaos that is happening now look like a peaceful meadow.

This moment of peace that just happened was bought to you by God.  Each time you make it from point A to point B without tragedy striking you, that was bought to you by God. Your children arrived safely home form school, that was bought to you by God. You sip your coffee or tea in the morning sun, that was because of God.

We take so many moments of peace for granted, like they are just supposed to happen. like we deserve them! We don’t even deserve to draw breath. Yet here you are sitting at you desk or on your couch reading this devotion. And here i am in a moment of peace writing to you.

The words don’t exist that would describe the HELL FIRE that creation would bear if God removed His hand. The only thing we deserve is hell fire but yet god’s hand is stayed on the axis of creation and the devastation that could happen is held back.

This moment of peace is bought to you by God.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/25/17 Two Heartbeats

Hello family, I want you to take a minute to find your pulse or put you hand on you chest and find your heartbeat. Do you feel it, is your heartbeat fast or is it slow? We can get  basic info about how we are doing just by simply feeling our pulse or heartbeat.

There are two heartbeats we should be constantly monitoring. The first is the heartbeat of God. As a matter of fact we should be directly plugged in to the cadence of His heart, so we can identify when, where and how God is moving. The second heartbeat is the heart beat of this world. We don’t connect with it like we do with the heart of God, we simply monitor the vital signs.

“But the world is against God, why monitor its heartbeat?” So you can know how to minister to the environment around you. If God places people in your path and you don’t take time to see them with God’s eyes. We won’t minister to them at all or we will minister to them in the wrong way. And they will be worse off than before. But when we are linked up and in sync with God’s heart beat and we are monitoring the heartbeat of this world we can truly be effective in our area of influence.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/10/17 I Don’t Understand It (But I Will Obey) 2.0

 

4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here [am] I. – Exodus 3:4 KJV

“God is presenting “burning bushes” to those He has chosen and they have to answer.”

Hello family, God bought me back to and old morning coffee devotion i wrote on 11/22/16 titled

“I Don’t Understand It (But I Will Obey)” I don’t fully understand the current season I am in. I expected it to go one way, but God directed it a totally different way. On an afternoon walk I vented to God about how I00 thought things should be right now and asking him what does he want me to do in this season.

He said to me “I am your provider, not some job! I am your source, have I ever lead you wrong? Take care of the things i have placed before you and will place before you. Do not neglect them, I have placed theses things in your care. When I want you to do something I will let you know!”

Keep your ear to the ground so that you will sense where the spirt is leading. Be on high alert, be watching and ever ready for when God tells you to move. The time now is so incredibly critical. Just as Ester received and acted on the wisdom of her uncle Mordecai. It is such a time as this that you act and  move according to the Holy Spirit. Make your shelter in the name of the Most High! Abide under His wings, there you will find an abundance of all that you need!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 6/29/17 Unconditional Love? PT1

Hello Family

I read an email from a blog site i follow. someone posted the question does God love everyone unconditionally? Now I’m sure you may have responded to the question with an instant preloaded “yes!” But lets not get ahead of ourselves. Grab a cup of Coffee and lets see what the Holy Spirit will reveal to us.

First what is love? What are its characteristics? For that we will head to 1 Corinthians 13. This scripture maybe super familiar but as we know God’s word is alive and active so please lets look at this with a clean slate without any of our presumptions. “Love is patient and kind.” Parents, you may have a child that has gone astray and they are not living up to the great potential that you se within them. let me ask you how long will will you pray for them to come home? How long will your heart hope for their turn around? There isn’t and end date to to that answer especially for the mothers. Your verbal prayers may grow less frequent but deep within your hearth chambers your heart will still cry out to God for that child’s safe return even if you are on your death bed.

It is the same with God, except her is eternal and all knowing. Can you imagine knowing all the things your child would do both good and bad in there life long before they were born and you still demonstrated  your love to them even if you knew they would reject you? That is Love! Love is kind. Its easy to bring a friend of family into your home for a meal but what about a total stranger that is rather dirty will you have the kindness to let them in and clean them up? God did that for us, that is apart of Love!

Morning Coffee 5/24/17 2 Lions (Poem)

2 Lions

My mind is a battle ground.

My heart is the prize

With in me are two lions fighting for strength and size.

This battle never ends it never goes

it only ebbs and flows.

This battle is not something I choose.

The two lions do not fight with there teeth or roars.

These lions use words that when acted on can open diffrent doors

The crazy thing about this battle is i decide who wins.

These loins call for my attention and time

they seek to have all my focus

ether one can devour me like a plague of locust.

One lion screams world lust

the other shouts in God we trust.

One lion is boom the other is bust.

So here i am caught in the middle

My flesh and Gods will

I can’t treat this like its lets make a deal.

Because the choices i make will have a lasting impact

The choices i make will leave me tattered or standing intact.

2 lions, my mind is the battle ground

My heart is the prize that leads to my soul.

One lion will leave you broken but the other will make you whole.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 4/10/17 Ask Not What Your God Can Do For You! But Ask What You Can Do For Your God!

READ ROMANS  12:1-2

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1 KJV

Hello family, Ask Not What Your God Can Do For You! But Ask  What You Can Do For Your God! Let’s be honest with our selves, we ask God for a lot! Majority of it is for self benefit. As this year has progressed God has been shifting my mindset from “God do for me!” to “God what can i do for you!” It’s not that i don’t ask Him for things for myself. It’s me coming into my personal time with God. With the mindset of a soldier reporting for duty, ready to execute His will.

We are in a time where we cannot get comfortable. we really should be doing the opposite. we should be prepared and expecting to be placed out of our comfort zone. I never met a soldier that fought with fuzzy bunny slippers on with a remote in there hand with a jumbo bag of popcorn. When God calls report for duty!

   Ask Not What Your God Can Do For You! But Ask  What You Can Do For Your God!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 3/20/17 I Don’t Understand It (But I Will Obey)

READ EXODUS 3:1-4

4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here [am] I. – Exodus 3:4 KJV

Hello family, I don’t fully understand all that God as set before me. What i do know is that He has called me and I must answer. I cannot turn away from the “burning bush” He has set before me. He has called me for such a time as this!

God is presenting “burning bushes” to those He has chosen and they have to answer. You may not fully understand the “burning bush” in front of you but it is the first step you must take to accomplish all that God has for you. Don’t try and force it, if you do you will just burn out. It is God operating in you that will show you how to get things done. 19 When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time. 20 For it is not you who will be speaking–it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. – Matthew 10:19-20 NLT

Keep your ear to the ground so that you will sense where the spirt is leading. Be on high alert, be watching and ever ready for when God tells you to move. The time now is so incredibly critical. Just as Ester received and acted on the wisdom of her uncle Mordecai. It is such a time as this that you act and  move according to the Holy Spirit.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/19/16 Made For This!

22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. – Proverbs 8:22 KJV

Hello family, this past week at my job was a bit rough I just wanted it to end. I took calls that had complaint after complaint. I felt like i was being shot at by a firing squad. I could not wait for Friday, my off day too come and get to the mens group that evening.

God had something for me that evening. I got a new point of view, customer service for apple is not my job. It is another aspect of the ministry God has given me. God has ordained each call that rings to my phone. Before the foundations of the world was made, I was destined to speak with every person that has and will ever call in to my line.

So I am no longer looking at my position as a job or work, but ministry. We don’t have to call fire down from heaven and throw out a bunch of scripture. No! All we have to be is a willing open vessel and allow the Holy Spirit to flow through us. He can move through the tone of my greeting, “Hello! Thank you for calling Apple, my name is Brandon! How can I help you today?”

Your Job is another aspect of your ministry. No matter if you are the CEO of a big corporation or the midnight trash man. For this moment you were made for. You may be the last Jesus they see!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 8/15/16 No Excuses!

Read Philippians 4:12-13

13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13 NLT

Hello family, The other night i was out with my family at a restaurant. The restaurant had different sports on the tv’s one show on espy caught my eye. It was a sport center feature called No Compromise.

I see this little boy preparing him self for a wrestling match. He introduces him self he says ‘ I was born without legs. My name is Isaiah Bird, No legs, No excuses!” Isaiah’s mom has had domestic issues with his father that lead to them being homeless and put in a shelter. isaiah’s wrestling coach took him into his home and became a father figure to Isaiah.

This young man came one match short of winning the junior New york state wresting championship. No excuses! No excuses! No excuses! That is what his coach is teaching him. In life there will be things that seem out of our ability well that is where God steps in. We have no excuses!

There is not a single situation that we can’t overcome! Isaiah has way more of a reason to give up than any of us do. But he doesn’t even when met with failure. Quit is not an option, laying down is not an option! The only thing to do is rise up, learn, and go at it again! No Excuses family! No Excuses!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 7/5/16 Compose Your Self (This Is your Moment)

Read 2Timothy 1:1-7

7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. – 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT

Hello family, When I read this scripture, I think of a warrior preparing themselves for battle. They have been fully trained for what lies ahead and now it is time to apply the training. Paul is basically giving Timothy a pep talk to keep him fired up.

When we step out to do what God told us to do there will be steps that we won’t be notified of until we need to make them. At these moments we must keep our composure. We cannot get scattered during these critical moments. I like to know every step ahead but this year has not been the case. And i have had to keep moving as God planned.

Keep building the gifts God gave you, keep training, keep working the plan God is giving you. This is your moment! Remember God cannot be caught off guard he knows what lies ahead! So breathe deep and move forward!

Much Love & God Bless
