There is always hope when God’s promise is involved. I don’t know how long you have been waiting on God’s promise to manifest or come alive in your life but this I know God is not man that he should lie. He said His word will never return to Him void.

Here are 5 tips to help you overcome tough times….

Tip 1
Make prayer your number one priority.
Prayer is a powerful weapon that God has given us and we are supposed to use it when life throws tough situations and very unexpected disappointments at us. The first thing we are supposed to do is get on our knees and pray to God for his guidance, for His strength, for His courage and for the will to get back up again.

Hebrews 5:7
During the days of Jesus’ earthly life, He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence.

Even when God was facing trials and tribulations, even on the point of death Jesus didnt think of anything else but prayer. He prayed to God to help him through the hard time He was facing.

We should learn this from our father Jesus Christ that even when you are on point of death or your faced with the most difficult decisions or your faced with obstacles that are beyond your control. Always trust God and bow down on your knees and pray to God for direction and guidance and He will help you through it and give you the courage and strength to overcome.

Tip 2
Let go of the past hurt and embrace the new thing that God is doing in your life now.
Learn how to let go of the past hurt. Whatever has happened to you in the past do not let it destroy your future. Situations will have happened in your life to make you stronger so that you can be able to overcome whatever is thrown at you in the future.

God has given you victory over your past so stop looking back at it, because it will hinder you from receiving the greatest blessing that God has for you. Embrace your future and embrace your new reality because no darkness that rises up against you is ever going to win because God overcame your darkness and sin can no longer torment you again.

Tip 3
Forgive those that have hurt you.
When you’re facing hard times it’s very important for you to forgive every single person that has hurt you. You are not doing it for them you were doing it for yourself. When you forgive them you release yourself from any baggage that might have been lingering around and trying to hinder you from walking into your breakthrough.

Many times you have been bound by situations because of unforgiveness which has caused you to be bitter and caused you to act out in a certain way that was not of God. Forgiveness is the key to unlocking your blessing and to freeing yourself from any baggage of the past and it’s the key to freeing your mind from stress and depression. Because when you hold on to unforgiveness you’re holding onto pain and misery and all the heartache that comes with it. Today is a time for you to release yourself and free yourself from the bondage of forgiveness .

When you forgive everybody that has hurt you, you will notice a great change in your life things will start happening in your favor and blessings will start to flow because you have destroyed that thing that has been holding you in bondage for such a long time.

Tip 4
Spend more times in the presence of God when you are facing tough times.
It’s very important that when you’re going through tough times do not let your mind wander and let it be worried because the more you allow your mind to be everywhere and let everybody and anybody speak words that don’t agree with with what you’re going through you know it may put you in a predicament that you really want to get out of.

The key here is when you’re facing the toughest the toughest of times spend more time in the presence of God. Draw closer to God like never before and He will draw near to you. It’s in the tough times that God will speak to you the most. He will guide you he will listen to you he will direct you and above all he will show you how to overcome the tough times.

Shut out all the noise and spend time in the presence of God and listen to His voice alone because it’s His voice that is that your going to need to make it through the tough times because with God by your side you can overcome anything.
Reading God’s word will guide you, direct you, will give you the strength and endurance needed to run your race. It keeps your spiritual tank from reaching low. His presence will empower you and His Word will provide the nourishment for your soul.

Tip 5
Believe in God’s plan for your life
No matter how many tough times you have faced never stop believing on God’s plan for your life. Never give up even when the odds are against you and even when you face challenges. Always remember there is nothing that you face that alone. God is always in the fight with you and He will help you overcome. God has not brought you this far to forsake you now. His plan for you is to have a future and a hope, to be blessed and fulfill your purpose. Never stop believing in God’s plan for your life.


How to Speak Life to your Dreams and Destiny!

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit-Proverbs 18:21.

God has placed seeds inside of us that we need to nurture in order for us to flourish and become the people God has created us to be. It’s very important that you take care of the seeds inside of you. When I say seeds, I mean the dreams, the gifting’s and purpose God has placed on the inside of you.

When you don’t feed your dreams with the right foods they will die and perish. You will be stagnant, no progress and will bare no fruit because you have not invested in your dreams and your gifts. You have got to speak life over your dreams and destiny so you can walk in the reality of your purpose.

For example, when a farmer plants seeds in his garden, he just doesn’t plant  the seeds in the soil and then forget about them. When he forgets about what he has planted then he’s seeds will die and bare no fruit. What he does is, he waters them every single day and feeds them the right nutrients to make sure they don’t die but grow well and reach their highest potential so that he can reap a great harvest from what he sowed.

The same applies to you, every gift God has given you, you are responsible over it and you’re supposed to feed it every day with the right ingredients and having the right mindset to achieve them. This includes positivity, declaring life over your dreams, feeding your dreams with the right words, so that they can grow and produce results.

The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. (John 6:63)

Many times we have killed the seeds (dreams, goals) with in us. We have done that with feeding them the wrong ingredients, wrong mentality, wrong thinking….like negativity, doubt, fear, curses, wrong perception of self, hopelessness, surrounding ourselves with bad relationships and so much more. That has hindered us from reaching our fullest potential that we have been predestined to live. That’s why you keep asking yourself why your dreams are not coming to pass. It’s all because you have been feeding your dreams with the wrong  fruit. It’s time to speak life to your seed, to your destiny and to your purpose so that you can enjoy all the best that God has for you.

When you speak life to your seed it will grow and you will flourish into a beautiful butterfly and nothing will stand in your way to achieving your dreams and destiny. When your dreams are alive, you are alive and everything around you is alive. You will always attract greatness and blessings because you spoke life to the dead seeds in your life and they were brought to life. Everything in you and around you will flourish in Jesus name because you have allowed the light of God into your life and He has transformed everything with in you.

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:12-13)

I want encourage you and inspire you to declare God’s word over every dead thing in your life that has hindered you from being the best you and I want you to speak life to it right now. God’s word is life and it’s very powerful, God’s word goes down to the deepest part of your soul and changes and transforms you. Speak life and speak greatness over yourself.

When nobody is speaking anything good over you, you have the power and responsibility to speak life over yourself, your destiny, your dreams, goals and purpose every single day and don’t let anybody tell you any different. You were created for greatness. Let God’s word come alive in your life, in every aspect of your being, in the pursuit of your destiny, dreams and goals. You have been set free from anything that has been trying to sabotage your destiny, from everything that has been trying to kill your dreams from the inside. I declare life over everything that you do, over your plans and over your dreams. May the best version of you come alive in Jesus name.

 “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close”.Revelation 3:8

Many times, in our lives we have gotten so stuck at  a closed door and struggled to move forward because of the disappointments we have faced and for every trial and tribulation we have faced. It has seemed like every time a door opened in your life it was closed for some reason.

A closed door has caused you to second guess your purpose, your dreams and has caused you to live in doubt. You have felt stuck and not moving forward because mentally you are still living in regret of a closed door instead of moving on to something new.

Holding on to the past or closed door has hindered God’s best from manifesting in your life because you have not made room for something new to happen.

When you stop having expectations from God that something good is going to happen to you, you will always live closed in, with no vision and live in regrets of what woulda, shoulda been, that kind of mindset will keep you stuck and unproductive. God wants to set you free today and His opening new doors for you.

I declare over you today as your entering this new season and month of March 2018 that God is going to deliver you from all the things that have kept you stuck at a closed door. When you are in God’s will He will lead you through those “open” doors and away from those “closed” doors.

For the Bible says, Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert- Isaiah 43:19 

When a door closes you have to trust God with all your heart and believe He will see you through because He promises that He will never leave defenseless.

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths- Proverbs 3:5-6

When one door closes God will always open a new door for you because He has great plans for you, plans to prosper and give you a future. Your blessing is a head of you not behind you. When a door closes keep moving forward and knocking and a door will open because when God opens a door for you no devil or no man will ever close it.

 Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. Continue to knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, whoever continues to ask will receive. Whoever continues to look will find. And whoever continues to knock will have the door opened for them- Matthew 7:7-8

Know who you are in Christ!

When you know who you are in Christ you can walk in the midst of fire and don’t get burned. When God is living inside you no storm, no darkness can overtake you or hurt you because you are covered by the blood of Jesus.

Many times when we let storm or trials destroy us it’s because we have forgotten who are in Christ. God has given us the tools and the weapons to use when trouble shows up and when storms come. God knew that in life we are going to face so many storms that’s why He gave us His son Jesus to be our help, comforter and our redemption.

That’s why the Bible says….When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.- Isaiah 43:2

When you know who we are in Christ you will have the assurance of His word that no matter what you face you will be okay because God is always with you and He will never leave or forsake you.

In God nothing will ever separate you from His love. No matter how big the storm is, no matter the betrayal and no matter what flames 🔥 are raising up against you. You will never get burned as long as God is by your side .

He said when you abide in Him, He will abide in you. No matter where you go or where you are, God will always be with you and protect you from all harm.

The Bible says…..no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; Psalm 91:10-11

Knowing who you are in Christ is very important because you will not be moved by negative situations that happen in your life. You will have the confidence and trust in God because you know He got your back and He will get you through whatever you face because you are God’s and your identity is in Him.

Never forget this…greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4(KJV)


You will get everything God has for you!

I believe you are going to get all that God has for you. God has put dreams in your hearts and His written Destinys over your lives and He is going to bring to pass everything He has promised you. You will have to trust Him with your Destinys and dreams in order to see the manifestation of his promises.

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. ~2 Corinthians 9:8~

You need to have faith in God even when your surroundings don’t look promising or even when everything around you is in chaos and you heart is filled with doubt and unbelief. Let your faith in God’s word be greater than your fear and know that God is not man that He should lie because every word He has said to you and every promise He has made to you is truth and He will bring to pass.

Unfortunately, many times the path to the promise is filled with lots of distractions, delays, hardships, pain and opposition. This I know……nothing worth having ever comes easy and without opposition. Darkness will come, storms will come, winds will blow, waters will raise and you will be confronted by fear. All that is meant to happen, God allows the path to be difficult so that He can purify you, prepare you, strengthen you and refine you for your place of promise.

So don’t let your present situation discourage you from the your destiny and from Gods promise. He is going to bless you beyond anything you have ever dreamed of because you have paid the price and suffered for your dreams and destiny. Whatever you have suffered in private God is going to bless and reward you in public.

The enemy has fought so hard to try to steal your faith in God and keep you in bondage but enough is enough says the lord. This is the day for your redemption. God loves you so much and His desire is to bless you and supply your every need.

If you have been in a trying and difficult season and you have been feeling discouraged and hopeless worry no more because God is on your side. God knows you, He has been watching you, feeling everything you feel and guiding your path and He says 2018 is a your year of abundance and fulfilled promises. Don’t worry about what you don’t have, God is going to make sure you have it all. Remember your negative circumstances don’t exclude you from God’s blessings.

Defend your light

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.-Psalm 119:105  

You have to defend your light. Not everybody has to be around you. You have to surround yourself with people that help you become better and not the people that tear down your dreams. Always look out and watch and see who is for you and who is against you.

Not everybody is going to be for you. You have to fight for your dreams, you have to defend them on every side because what God has put inside of you has great purpose. Surround yourself with people that motivate you, inspire you and empower you to achieve your dreams. You’ve got a light and that light has got to shine so bright until you birth your dreams, visions and goals.

But in order for that to happen your environment or your surrounding has got to be light. So remove every negative energy, remove every darkness that is brought to you by people that want to dim your light. Surround yourself with greatness, surround yourself with people that believe in your dreams and vision and stay away from the people that work so hard to destroy your greatness.

Do not share your dreams and goals with everyone. People will not believe in your vision and your dream’s beginning stages, your are highly vulnerable to the opinions of others. They will go after your light especially if you are surrounded by negativity, doubt, and belittling feedback. Even some of your closest family and friends will have a hard time investing in your vision. This is ok. Most of time people have to see something to believe in it and your friends and family are no different so don’t take this personally. So when you encounter this issue ask God for wisdom and discernment to know who is for you and who is against you and defend your light (Dreams).

Be careful who you take advice from. Not everyone has your dreams best interests. Unless a person has had success in going after their dreams, be mindful of putting weight in their advice. Dreams take time, chance, risk, going into the unknown, faith, belief, conviction in the unseen and if someone hasn’t travelled those waters, they aren’t going to be able to advise you.

Find people who have gone before you, who have made something out of nothing, who have been persistent and dedicated to their vision and dreams , who have faced self-doubt and fear and looked the possibility of failure in the eye and never gave up. These people will be the strongest sources of support, perspective, advice, and opinion and can be leaned on faithfully as you light your own path.

Trust God with your path, dreams and vision and defend your light no matter what situation or circumstances are thrown at you, never give up and you will achieve all your dreams in Jesus name.


Finding Grace

For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God’s gift, so that no one can boast about it. -Ephesians 2:8-9

God’s grace will always find you no matter what you have gone through and what you have done. Many times you have second guessed God’s love for you because of the mistakes and things you have done that have caused you to feel so unworthy.

Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it. -Hebrews 4:16

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are. The grace of God is able to reach you. He says in His word that even when you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, He will be there for you. God’s grace reaches down deep into the midst of every storm your facing , in the midst of every darkness, in the midst of every situation that’s been too hard for you to face and bare. Whatever has been overwhelming you God‘s grace is able to lift you up and restore all the enemy has stolen from you and protect you from any situation no matter how dark it is.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.- Psalm 23:4

In your daily walk to destiny you will encounter valleys and you will have to walk through them no matter how difficult and painful the journey is, be comforted and know that you are never alone. God is with you every step of the way. His grace is sufficient for you. So don’t quite in the midst of your valley because your greatest blessing is waiting for you on the other side once you cross over. It’s in the valley that you will experience the presence of God and His Grace will overshadow and protect you from all harm and you will receive the abundance of God’s love, guidance and blessings.

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. -2 Corinthians 12:9

God’s grace will find you in your weakness and strengthen you. Even in your weakness and all your failures you are still worthy in God’s eyes. God’s grace will never disqualify you because you made a mistake. God’s grace will find you and rescues you out of the pit of darkness into His marvelous light with love.

God’s grace covers  a multitude of your sins. Even when people and friends have counted you out, have rejected you because of your flaws, mistakes and imperfections remember this God’s grace finds you and excepts you just the way you are.

He will never leave you nor forsake no matter what you done . His love for you is unconditional. He will never change His mind about you, in Him You will always be Excepted. God sent His son Jesus so you could be saved from rejection and judgement. God’s grace finds you blameless, perfect and worthy of His love. You are a new creature in Christ Jesus.

But by the free gift of God’s grace all are put right with him through Christ Jesus, who sets them free -Romans 3:24.


Put Fear of Lack out of Business


For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.- 2 Timothy 1:7.

Fear is the biggest dilemma in the world. A lot of people around the world are living in fear of lack and it’s controlling how they think and it’s destroying their lives. Fear of lack is the enemy against your destiny and your dreams. You can’t give it power anymore to control your life.

Many of us have fear of lack, never having enough and that has affected us in so many ways that we are always wanting more. We are never happy because we are not satisfied with what we have. We are so afraid that we are going to loose it all. Fear of lack causes greed because we are always consumed wanting more and we have let material things become an idol. And when material things become an idol the lack of them will always keep you in fearful state. When fear is controlling your life it will destroy everything you are about, so trust God and not material things that perish. Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”- Hebrews 13:5

There times when the place where we were getting our provision dries up for example when you loose your job, when your business fails and it throws you in lack and your filled with so much fear and you start questioning yourself where the money or where the help is going to come from financially. And you forget that God has provision for you. Don’t be stuck at the closed door because God is opening new doors for you where no man or devil will close. And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.- 2 Corinthians 9:8

It’s time to put fear out of business. When thoughts of fear of lack torment your mind and heart resist them and renew your mind with God’s promises because He says He will supply all your needs according to your riches in glory. Do not fear but trust God with your need because God will always provide for you. But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.- Jeremiah 17:7-8

So don’t worry about money, what your going to eat or wear and know this… if God can take care of the birds in the sky how much more will He take care of you His child. When you put your trust in yourselves you will never have enough but when we put your trust in God you will always have more than enough. So don’t put your trust in material things because when you loose them you will end up leaving a life of fear of lack because you did not trust in God’s provision. “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?- Mathew 6:26

I don’t know what your worried or afraid of about but whatever it is let it go and trust God with your worries. Cast all your care and burdens upon God because He cares for you. I remember a while back I was believing God for a financial break through that I needed right away and when I didn’t get it I freaked out, my heart was overwhelmed with anxiety and fear of lack. I start to think how am I going to pay for my school, how I was going to pay for my bills and everything I needed to take care of ….And then the Holy Spirit quicken me and reminded me of His word and He said do not fear, don’t you know I’m your God and your provision is in me. And He also reminded me of all things He provided for me through the years and immediately as I remembered all that my faith was strengthened and all the fear, anxiety and worry all went away and I decided that no matter what lack or disappointment I faced I would always trust God’s provision and never let the enemy fill my heart with fear of lack.

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

So I encourage you today don’t let fear win, let your faith in God’s provision be greater that your lack and your present circumstances. In God you will never lack but you will always have more than enough. Whatever you need go to God in prayer and He will supply your every need. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.- Philippians 4:6

The purpose of God will always prevail

No matter what your going through the purpose of God will prevail. God has not given you a promise that He won’t fulfill.

There is always hope when God’s promise is involved. I don’t know how long you have been waiting on God’s promise to manifest or come alive in your life but this I know God is not man that he should lie. He said His word will never return to Him void.

So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.- Isaiah 55:11

Even in the midst of trials and tribulations do not panic or be anxious but rest and trust God’s promise to you. Don’t be bitter, mad and disappointed because your promise has not yet manifested. There is a blessing and purpose in the valley. Keep walking in faith , do not faint and give up because God is always on time and His time is always the best time. Trust His promise.

The valley, the journey has been so long and painful but God is walking with you all the way. Sometimes you have wondered how you have been able to make it this far, it’s because God has been strengthening your steps at your weakest moments. Keep walking forward because God is with you all the way He will never leave your side.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23

When we look at the story in the Bible when Jesus calmed the storm when He was with His disciples. Jesus was not bothered by the storm that were raging when He was on the boat because He was at peace but His disciples were so afraid and forgot who was with them in the storm and they woke Him up and He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.-Mathew 8:26

The disciples were awaken by their fear and Jesus was a sleep in His purpose.

 Jesus calms the storm

Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”- Mathew 8:23-27

How many times in your own life have you been so afraid and overwhelmed with fear when trouble, trials showed up and when the storms were raging in your life, you forgot that God was with you even in the midst of your storm.

What God is saying to you right now is that no matter what war is raging all around peace be still. Have faith and know God is king over ever storm in your life. God is in the middle of all that your going through and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Wait upon Him and trust His promise. Through everything your going through God’s purpose will be revealed and it will be worth it. For the best is yet to come.
