Only the painter knows exactly what the final canvas will look like. We are canvases going under painting process by God (The Painter).
As believers we are created in the image of God and we are mobile canvases or we freedom to choose. Therefore we have to be stationary and allow the painter to finish painting without premature interruption. Our positioning with God determines how our final picture will look like. No matter how good or how painful each paint stroke can be, let us be stable and know that God knows what He is doing.
Jesus Christ must be central to the holy communion. Who is Jesus Christ to you? Look back and remember what Jesus Christ has done for you. Remember that you are enjoying the fruits of salvation because Jesus Christ laid down His life for you. There is power in holy communion if it is done the right way.
The Holy Spirit is not only for power and might, but also anoints you to give ability. The time has come for the anointing to be used not just for falling down. Change your understanding of the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of God.
The prayer that is made earnestly will bring desired results. The most important part of prayer is not speaking, it is hearing what God is saying to you. You can't just pray and pray without making a move, you need to open the door. Prayer without faith doesn't give results - if there is no faith, God does not move. Seek God! Be on the lookout, stalk God!
There are many characteristics of women in the bible that we see in our mothers today: Women who are Godly, responsible wives and mothers, women with beauty and brain, women who are faithful and faith filled, intelligent. Women who raise children by faith, in faith, for the faith. For this, we need to celebrate and appreciate our mothers.
God is the centre of gravity - when you know God, you are no longer moved by things that happen in life. When God starts working, give Him a little bit of time - He will bring it to completion. God is not after your service, He is after your fellowship. There are obstacles in your life that until God moves in your life,
you are disqualified, you are not going anywhere - this is when grace functions. Grace is unlimited and has no restrictions. The only thing required with grace is faith - Believe that He will do it.
