COVER ME LORD

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust. Ruth 2:12

     In after-days, this was a favorite image with David in his wanderings and escapes among those same hills. Perhaps he had received it as a fragrant legacy from the life of his good ancestor, Boaz. At least on one occasion, Jesus employed it in saying that He had wished to gather Jerusalem as a hen her chicks.

How warm, cozy, and safe, the chickens are when they have gathered under the wings of the brooding hen! It must be a very heaven for them. The storm may roll through the sky, the heavy raindrops fall, the hawk may hover above, poising itself on its wings; but the body of the parent-bird is interposed between them and all that threatens. What wonder that the Psalmist said that he would hide under the shadow of God’s wings till all his calamities were overpast!

Are you sheltering there? Have you come out of the storm and tempest to hide there? Can you say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust”? If so, remain in happy confidence. God is between you and all evil or alarm. Be still; yea, be still.

If you have not come to trust under the outspread wings of the Cherubim, do as Ruth did. Leave the land of your nativity, the far country of Moab; leave your people and your gods; tear yourself away even from some twin-soul, dear as Orpah; come across the border-line, and glean in the fields of the Gospel. There you will meet with the true Boaz, who will show kindness unto you, and you will become affianced to Him, and live at home forevermore in the house of bread, where you will be blessed indeed.

BE DEFINITE IN PRAYER

 Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“9 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the Lord which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan, and now I have become two bands.

11 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children. (Genesis 32:9, 11).

There are many healthy symptoms in that prayer. In some respects, it may serve as a mould into which our own spirits may pour themselves when melted in the fiery furnace of sorrow.

He began by quoting God’s promise: “Thou saidst.” He did so twice (verses 9 and 12). Ah, he has got God in his power then! God puts Himself within our reach in His promises; and when we can say to Him, “Thou saidst,” He cannot say nay. He must do as He has said. If Herod was so particular for his oath’s sake, what will not our God be? Be sure in prayer, to get your feet well on a promise; it will give you purchase enough to force open the gates of heaven and to take it by force.

Jesus desires that we shall be definite in our requests and that we shall ask for some special thing. “What will ye that I shall do unto you?” is the question that He asks of everyone who in affliction and trial comes to Him. Make your requests with definite earnestness if you would have definite answers. Aimlessness in prayer accounts for so many seemingly unanswered prayers. Be definite in your petition. Fill out your check for something definite, and it will be cashed at the bank of Heaven when presented in Jesus’ Name. Dare to be definite with God.

Every year, I say every day, that I live, I seem to see more clearly how all the rest and gladness and power of our Christian life hinges on one thing; and that is, taking God at His word, believing that He really means exactly what He says, and accepting the very words in which He reveals His goodness and grace, without substituting others or altering the precise modes and tenses which He has seen fit to use.”

Bring Christ’s Word–Christ’s promise, and Christ’s sacrifice–His blood, with thee, and not one of Heaven’s blessings can be denied thee. Brethren it is your time to act on what is truth and live for Him who died for all.

A BATTLE TO FIGHT

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

In any hand-to-hand combat, there’s a constant back-and-forth of blows, dodges, blocks, counterattacks, and so forth. That’s exactly what is going on in the unseen around us. Only it takes place, initially, at the level of our thoughts. When we are under attack, we’ve got to hang on to the truth. Dodge the blow, block it with a stubborn refusal, slash back with what is true. This is how Christ answered Satan — He didn’t get into an argument with him, try to reason his way out. He simply stood on the truth. He answered with Scripture and we’ve got to do the same.

This will not be easy, especially when all hell is breaking loose around you. It will feel like holding on to a rope while you’re being dragged behind a truck, like keeping your balance in a hurricane.

Satan doesn’t just throw a thought at us; he throws feelings too. Walk into a dark house late at night and suddenly fear sweeps over you, or just stand in a grocery line with all those tabloids shouting sex at you and suddenly a sense of corruption is yours.

But this is where your strength is revealed and even increased — through exercise.

Stand for what is true and do not let go. Period.

The traitor within the castle will try to lower the drawbridge, but don’t let him. When Proverbs 4:23 tells us to guard our hearts, it’s not saying, “Lock them up because they’re really criminal to the core”; it’s saying, “Defend them like a castle, the seat of your strength you do not want to give away.” As the Patriarch Sutherland says, “Yet we must be watchful, especially in the beginning of the temptation; for the enemy is then more easily overcome, if he is not suffered to enter the door of our hearts, but is resisted without the gate at his first knock.”

Remember the scene in Braveheart where Robert Bruce’s evil father is whispering lies to him about treason and compromise? He says to Robert what the Enemy says to us in a thousand ways: “All men betray; all men lose heart.” How does Robert answer? He yells back, I don’t want to lose heart! I want to believe, like [Wallace] does. I will never be on the wrong side again.

That is the turning point in his life . . . and in ours. The battle shifts to a new level.

ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.” (Matthew 9:29).

“Praying through” might be defined as praying one’s way into full faith, emerging while yet praying into the assurance that one has been accepted and heard, so that one becomes actually aware of receiving, by firmest anticipation and in advance of the event, the thing for which he asks.

Let us remember that no earthly circumstances can hinder the fulfillment of His Word if we look steadfastly at the immutability of that Word and not at the uncertainty of this ever-changing world. God would have us believe His Word without other confirmation, and then He is ready to give us “according to our faith.”

“When once His Word is passed,
When He hath said, ‘I will,’ (Hebrews 13:5)
The thing shall come at last;
God keeps His promise still.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

The prayer of the Pentecostal age was like a cheque to be paid in a coin over the counter.

“And God said…and it was so.” (Genesis 1:9.)

THE THINGS THAT ARE KEEPING YOU FROM YOUR DESTINY

 Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

Shifting Your Paradigm

In life, there are a lot of things that can keep us from being all that God has created us to be.

Sometimes, God can give us dreams that seem absolutely impossible and almost inconceivable.

A few people jump in, and they follow after those dreams regardless of the risks, trusting God in the unknown. A lot of people, though, feel apprehensive because of things that are holding them back from following God without any hindrances.

We need to have a paradigm shift where we recognize that we have a big, powerful Father who loves and champions us and is intricately involved in our lives.

Numerous things will try to hold us back from recognizing our sonship and fulfilling our destiny, but here are a few that I’ve seen in my life and others’.

1. Insignificance

This is one of the most common things that I see stopping people from being who they truly are and stepping out with boldness and confidence.

Insignificance is a killer of destiny, self-esteem, and relationships. This negative self-image says, “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t have what it takes”.

Someone who struggles with insignificance always thinks that they’re second-best or someone’s second choice to do a job, and they struggle with doubt in themselves and in God.

How to Say “NO!” to Insignificance

One of the best ways I’ve found to combat insignificance is to start with small steps by doing things that challenge you to take initiative.

The only way to see that you are able to do what God has asked you to do is to just do them. The truth is that we don’t have the natural ability to do what God has asked us to, but if He has called us to do something, He will give us the supernatural ability to do it. Surround yourself with people who will champion and support you in the dreams that God has given you.

Another thing to understand is that it’s okay to ask for help. A way that insignificance can rear its ugly head is to show itself as arrogance.

When we DO take something on, we want to prove that we can do it ourselves without any help because “we have what it takes”. In this inside-out, upside-down Kingdom we live in, sometimes we can realize our greatest strengths when we take a step back in humility. Plus, working as a team is always better than doing it alone.

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are.” (1 Corinthians 1:27-28)

2. Fear

Fear is proven to be extremely successful at stopping us in our tracks in regards to our future.

If we give fear permission to rule in one area, it can paralyze us in other areas, too. Fear is not our inheritance: love, peace, and joy are. Fear says, “That’s too scary”, “I might get hurt”, “It’s too dangerous/unfamiliar/etc”, or “I’m too (weird/loud/shy/different/etc)”. Fear and wisdom are two very different things.

If you’re a Christian going to a Muslim nation, some wisdom and direction from God are required to survive, but just because it’s dangerous, that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible or shouldn’t be done. Think of the POPE travelling around the world and visiting places that were impossible in the past. He has rested his “popemobile” for a regular car.

Fear shows itself in many different ways. I, personally, struggle with fear in the area of fear of rejection and I constantly have to say, “No. I’m loved, I’m accepted, and it’s okay if I’m different.” Especially when I start to feel misunderstood or judged wrongly.

Fear of the unknown is another one that is prevalent. People don’t know or don’t understand so they just ignore it or they reject it completely.

How to Say “NO!” to Fear

Fear is a difficult one to combat, but this is where “renewing of the mind” (Romans 12:2) and “taking captive of your thoughts” (2 Corinthians 10:4-6) is so important.

Like I mentioned before, I struggle with fear of rejection, but it’s getting easier. I have to train my mind to think differently than I did before. Before God brought this issue to my attention, I would let my thoughts run with terrible thoughts like, “I’ll never fit in” or “I’m just too different to them.” I would let these thoughts take over until the fear was unbearable and I would either isolate myself to avoid rejection or I would be the one to reject first.

Now when these thoughts try to take over, I’m able to recognize that it’s not the truth and to shut the thought down before it’s able to start to wreaking havoc on my heart. I’ll then think the opposite and recite the truth in my mind. This sounds trivial, but pretty soon my ability to think the truth instead of the lie becomes easier and the fearful thoughts have no hold anymore.

Reminding ourselves of the truth of what God says about us is key to growing our courage, boldness, and confidence in the face of scary situations. These are 2 verses that stick out to me regarding fear:

“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)

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

3. Finances

This is one that really hits home for me. Typically, as a minister, the issue of finances is something that you are constantly thinking about.

This can be one of the biggest hang-ups with going after your destiny, especially if it involves travel and/or volunteer work. I was told that living as a volunteer overseas is quite the faith journey as, most of the time, you can’t work (because it’s illegal), so you depend on friends and family who support you financially to literally help you keep living.

I hear people say, “Oh, I wish I could go to (———————–), but it’s too expensive” or “I would love to go on this mission trip, but I don’t have enough money.”

Here’s a sobering thought for you… On average, you make about $45.oo a day as a missionary, though it fluctuates greatly. Obviously, this is WAY under minimum wage. Somehow, missionaries continue to travel the world. The math doesn’t make any sense. You to pay for your housing, phone bill, and staff, you have to buy your own food and may have to support other missionaries. Somehow, you may even go hungry and may even fall behind in paying other bills including your rent. This is your consolation, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” (Psalm 37:25)

It is only because of God that missionaries are able to do what they do, and I believe that God wants them to do the job. He is faithful! You don’t have enough money? Sure you don’t, but God does! He owns it all!

How to Say “NO!” to Finances Holding You Back

I think this is one of the reasons why Jesus says you cannot serve God and mammon, which also means wealth (Matthew 6:24). When we put our money or material wealth in God’s direction, we’re making it an idol.

God is fully in control of our finances, along with everything else. We won’t take our money with us into eternity, but the treasures that will be stored up in heaven for us when we follow Jesus to the ends of the earth will be worth far more in the end.

Don’t let the paper that the world has put value in be worth more than the future that GOD has written for you. Step out. Trust Him.

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:31-33)

4. Welfare Mentality and Earthly Perspective

These two are kind of all-encompassing issues that really do hold us back from our destiny.

In this fallen, brutal world, it can be easy to feel alone and like everything is just downright hard. When we look around us, it is so easy to fall into a panic and uncertainty about our future. It can seem like things are falling apart on many different levels.

We all go through these times, but some people walk in these mentalities often. When we struggle with these two things or even one of them, we can tend to have a horizontal view, instead of a vertical one. We can look at this world and our lives with a defeatist attitude, where we have to fight for everything or fight for nothing.

Welfare recipients have to battle, grasp, and scrounge for everything. They live in a “survival of the fittest” world and sometimes, even as followers of Jesus, we act like that, too, even though we have everything we need available to us all the time.

The “Welfare Mentality” is where we don’t fully grasp our adoption (Ephesians 1:5) in Jesus Christ. The Welfare Mentality holds us back from our destiny because we do everything from a place of striving.

With an Earthly Perspective, it can feel like we’re subject to the boundaries of this world in regards to the things that we are able to do with our lives. It’s easy to see the clamour for more and more and MORE success and to want to climb that ladder, as well, especially in North American society.

We all know that the pursuit of happiness is short-lived and eventually futile.

How to Say “NO!” to a Welfare Mentality and an Earthly Perspective

The key to saying no to a Welfare Mentality and an Earthly Perspective is to read the Word of God. It seems like a simple answer, but God loves to talk about who He’s created us to be in the Bible.

This is another one of those things, like fear, where it comes down to a renewing of our minds which only comes with spending time with the Father and reading and listening to what He has to say about us (which is always good).

If you ever want to know how God so intricately sees you, read Psalm 139 again. Read it through the eyes of a Father who LOVES His child without measure, but also through the eyes of the King of the universe who has all power, control, dominion, and you in His hands… always.

Because we are adopted in Jesus’ family, Ephesians 2:6 says that we are seated with Him in heavenly places. We should have the perspective of heaven, not the perspective of the earth because of our position at the right hand of the Father.

In conclusion, we all have things that we struggle with, and some things may seem worse than others, but the reality is that we need to remember that we serve a faithful God who wants to make things right more than we do.

He is the answer to us fulfilling our destinies.

As long as we keep pursuing Him, we’re on the right track.

Don’t let your shortcomings (we all got ‘em) hold you back from your destiny!

GOD HAS CHOSEN ME

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” (Isaiah 48:10).

What should I talk to you about this morning or should I just write a portion of Scripture for you to read and thank God for waking us up to see another day. Every portion of the word has a lesson for us and in my understanding, I will give it to you.

Does not the Word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yes, is it not an asbestos armor, against which the heat has no power? Let the affliction come–God has chosen me. Poverty, thou mayest stride in at my door; but God is in the house already, and He has chosen me. Sickness, thou mayest intrude; but I have a balsam ready–God has chosen me. Whatever befall me in this vale of tears, I know that He has chosen me.

Fear not, Christian; Jesus is with thee. In all thy fiery trials, His presence is both thy comfort and safety. He will never leave one whom He has chosen for His own. “Fear not, for I am with thee,” is His sure word of promise to His chosen ones in “the furnace of affliction.”

Pain’s furnace heat within me quivers, God’s breath upon the flame doth blow; And all my heart in anguish shivers And trembles at the fiery glow; And yet I whisper, “As God will!” And in the hottest fire hold still.

He comes and lays my heart, all heated, On the hard anvil, minded so Into His own fair shape to beat it With His great hammer, blow on blow; And yet I whisper, “As God will!” And at His heaviest blows hold still.

He takes my softened heart and beats it; The sparks fly off at every blow; He turns it o’er and o’er and heats it, And lets it cool, and makes it glow; And yet I whisper, “As God will!” And in His mighty hand hold still.

Why should I murmur? for the sorrow Thus only longer-lived would be; The end may come, and will tomorrow When God has done His work in me; So I say trusting, “As God will!” And, trusting to the end, hold still.

The burden of suffering seems a tombstone hung about our necks, while in reality, it is only the weight which is necessary to keep down the diver while he is hunting for pearls.

Brethren there is no excellency of speech to capture our attention, but in the hearts of men and women tested and tried through trials and pain in the will of God.

WHAT IS THE SIZE OF YOUR ANCHOR?

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil.” Hebrews 6:19

Anchors, you know, are made of different sizes. You may walk in the Queen’s Dockyard, and there you may see anchors for a boat, and anchors for a three-decker. Yet all anchors are made in the same way and are designed for the same purpose, and the little anchor that holds the boat is as useful and as much an anchor as that which holds the three-decker.

So spiritually. There is hope in the heart of the babe. But the hope in the heart of a babe is but as the anchor of a boat, yet it holds that babe as firmly as the anchor holds the boat to which it is moored.

But as the Lord increases hope, he increases the size of the anchor; and as the vessel and its anchor always bear a proportion to each other, so when he enlarges the size of the anchor he increases the size of the ship. Nay more, as he increases the size of the ship, he increases its burden, for these two are proportionate. Thus hope takes a more vigorous hold within the veil; it enters more deeply into the presence of God; it takes a firmer grasp of covenant engagements, electing love, the immutability of God’s purposes, and the unchangeable nature of the great eternal I AM.

Image result for ANCHORED SHIP

Have you not felt at times your hope sweetly enlarged, so that it almost attained to the “full assurance of hope?” Scarcely a cloud remained between you and God, and you believed you should ride triumphantly into the haven of bliss and peace; and having these blessed sensations in your heart, you could part with life itself at that moment to fall into the embrace of your God.

BUT GOD …..!

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

What a message delivered into the hearts of mankind this morning and for the grace of our risen Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Oh, death where is thy sting? BUT GOD we can say thanks to God who gave us the victory through His Son Jesus. Just another day with more power to bless the hearts of those that will read this message and thanks to the Bishop that inspired me with these words BUT GOD. Hallelujah

But God…
But God! Every time I read a verse that says “but God” it is fantastically good news. There are literally hundreds of verses that have “but God” in both the Old and New Testaments.  Especially by what follows. I have heard many people I witness to say that they have too much baggage, too many sins to overcome, too much to have forgiven. I can reassure them that Holiness is not the way to Jesus, Jesus is the way to holiness. One of the most powerful things I can tell them it would be the scriptures that contain “but God….”.

Once we were dead in sin, BUT GOD made us alive!
Once we were captive to Satan, BUT GOD made us free!
Once we were children of wrath, BUT GOD has promised to spend eternity unwrapping the riches of his grace in kindness toward us!

Once we were trapped in religion, BUT GOD delivered us. We can go on and on to tell our story BUT GOD. Such a great story of truth we can share with the unbelievers.

Ephesians 2:1-9
And you he made alive when you were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience. Among these, we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of body and mind, and so we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God—not because of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:12.
REMEMBER that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel (THE CHURCH), and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

We were dead in sin, BUT GOD made us alive with Christ.

We were captive to the prince of the power of the air and enslaved to the course of this world, BUT GOD raised us with Christ and made us sit with him in the heavenly places.

We were children of wrath and deserving of an eternity in the torments of hell, BUT GOD, instead of pouring out wrath, will spend eternity showing the immeasurable riches of his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

Doomed, dead, hell-bent…BUT GOD.

Ephesians 2:4–7

4) But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us,

5) even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

6) and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

7) that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

We were dead in sin, BUT GOD made us alive with Christ

We were captive to the prince of the power of the air and enslaved to the course of this world, BUT GOD raised us with Christ and made us sit with Him in the heavenly places.

We were children of wrath and deserving of an eternity in the torments of hell, BUT GOD, instead of pouring out wrath, will spend eternity showing the immeasurable riches of his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

O that you would reckon with God! Consider now what the Word of God says concerning those who trust in him. Here is the way we will handle the text.

Ephesians 2:

We will put verse 3 over against verse 7 — we were children of wrath, BUT GOD promises endless kindness.

We will put verse 2 over against verse 6 — we were enslaved to the spirit of this age, BUT GOD freed us to sit with Christ in heaven.

And we will put verses 1 over against verse 5 and 6 — we were dead in sins, BUT GOD made us alive with Christ.

My brothers and sisters, this is good news! To you that are reading this message have a story now to tell your friends and family.

Impossible for us…BUT GOD? Nothing Is Impossible.

Genesis 50:20
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to save many people alive.

Acts 10:28
And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company or come unto one of another nation, but God hath shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

Psalm 49

14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave;
Death shall feed on them;
The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning;
And their beauty shall be consumed in the grave, far from their dwelling.
15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave,
For He shall receive me.  Selah  something like “stop and listen”

Acts 13:29-30
29 Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. 30 But God raised Him from the dead.

Romans 5:7-8
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die, yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

1 Corinthians 1:26-27
For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;

1 Corinthians 3:6-7
I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.  So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].

No, we can’t do it by ourselves. Holiness is not the way to Jesus, Jesus is the way to holiness. Just read “but God” and you’ll see how the impossible becomes quite possible. For us, yes, it is impossible, “but God?!”

Brethren take a little time and digest these words and tell God thanks for this could be your last chance, BUT GOD has made it possible for us to escape the wrath of damnation. Hallelujah.

THROUGH IT ALL

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8

After so many years serving the Lord and in ministry, these two words still make me stop and ponder, “But God . . .” still makes me stop whenever I come to those words in the Bible. Here are a few examples of verses that encourage me with the reminder of God’s righteous intervention in human affairs:

“You meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to . . . save many people alive” (Genesis 50:20).

“Their beauty shall be consumed in the grave . . . . But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave” (Psalm 49:14-15).

“My flesh and my heart fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Psalm 73:26).

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die, yet perhaps for a good man, someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:7-8).

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard . . . the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

Whenever you feel discouraged, look up some “but God” verses and be reassured of God’s involvement in the lives of those who love Him.

Creator of the universe
Who reigns in awesome majesty:
How can it be that You’re involved
With such a one as me?

CONGRATULATIONS

I want to thank Bishop Adrian “Prince” Toussaint for answering the call to ministry and for his Leadership and Management of the organizations. (Starlight of Israel Healing school and Mystical Order Spiritual Baptist)

I want to encourage you to keep the faith and stay focus for your labour will not be in vain in the Lord. I further encourage you as Solomon told us that a man that keeps his tongue, kees his soul. Ministry is ministering to the needs of people and ministering to the souls of men. It does not give ministers the liberty to gossip or create confusion among members. My Lord Bishop you are a good teacher and that is demonstrated with the people that travel a long distance to be in fellowship with you. There has to be something in you that causes me to recommend you to the chairman of the boards of the named organizations. I am very proud of you.

I am available whenever you need my advice and word of encouragements. Feel free to message me and contact me as you do.  I pray the Lord’s blessings on you and the members of the church and for the changes you are enacting for the betterment of the church. My blessings are with you and I know you will do a better job as previous leaders.  God bless you and the new administration.
