IN THE 2 VERSES I USED YESTERDAY it says, “…. Large crowds gathered to hear Him and have their diseases cured. But He would go away to places where He could be alone for prayer.” (Luke 5:15-16) There were LARGE crowds that came to hear Jesus and to have their diseases healed. But, Jesus knew He could do NOTHING without His Heavenly Father. THAT is why He retreated right in the midst of “ministry” to get ALONE with God. Ohhh, I pray those of us who are in the ministry, would take/make the time to cease from the “doing” of ministry, so we can focus on the “knowing” of the One who put us in the ministry. In fact, we should ALL follow the example of Jesus, because whenever the Created is with the Creator anything can happen!

“DO SOMETHING DANGEROUS, TODAY… Spend time ALONE with God!”
I believe you and I become dangerous to the enemy when we spend time alone with God. The key word in that statement is the word “alone.” So many times, as Christians, we have plenty of time with God in a “group” setting. There’s nothing wrong with that. We are told to do that in Hebrews 10:25. But, many Christians don’t ever take, or make, time to get “alone” with the Lord. It’s during those alone times where He molds us and makes us into His image. I believe there are things God wants to do in all of us, that can only happen, when we’re alone with Him. My final thought is, Jesus would often go away to places where He could be alone, with His Father, for prayer. If Jesus, the perfect Son of God, needed time alone with His Father (God), then I’m sure that I need alone time with God also. What about YOU?
“The news about Jesus spread even more. Large crowds gathered to hear Him and have their diseases cured. But He would go away to places where He could be alone for prayer.” Luke 5:15-16 (GW)

Yes, I really did have a dream. In the last couple of years I’ve had several dreams of me preaching….and my speech was perfect with no wheelchair in sight! MANY OTHERS have told me they also had dreams of me preaching and dreams of me healed. The only problem is, I didn’t know there would be so many, like 25 or 30. I should have written down names and their dreams. THAT’S WHY I NEED YOUR HELP. If you’ve had a dream about my healing, whether you shared it with me or not, will you please send me your name and a short summary of your dream? I’m most interested about: 1) Was I in my wheelchair or not? 2) Was I healed… if so, was it instantly or gradual? 3) Was I preaching or not, if so, how was my speech?
God used dreams in miraculous ways throughout the entire Bible. The dreams people have shared with me super-charge my faith like a spiritual steroid shot. So, if you’ve had a dream about my healing, please take a few minutes to send me a note: by messaging me on Facebook or at email@example.com. Thank you sooooooo much!

When is the last time you looked in the mirror and said, “Wow, look at that masterpiece!” I know, you think I’m kidding, but that’s how God sees us. In fact, He thinks so much about each one of us that… “Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in HIS EYES.” (Eph 1:4 NLT) Did you see that? “…. without fault in HIS EYES.” In order to see ourselves “without fault” we have to look through the eyes of God. He has the unique ability to see us for what we can become instead of what we were, or what we are now. A famous hockey player said, “I don’t skate to where the puck is, I skate to where puck is going.”
So, what about you? When you’re looking at yourself, whose eyes are you looking through? Other people, enemies, the devil? Just remember, the “Eyes of God” have forgotten your past, are aware of your today, and are seeing you in your God-given DESTINY.
“For we are God’s MASTERPIECE. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” (Eph 2:10 NLT)

Have you ever been in a large crowd, yet felt like you were all alone? Have you ever succeeded in business, or accomplished an almost impossible goal, but at the end of the day you felt like a failure, or you were depressed? Why and How does that happen??? Well, I have an answer… “I DON’T KNOW!” That’s right, I DON’T KNOW. However, I know the One that does know.
Whether you were successful today or not, negativity will always attempt to work it’s way into your thoughts. That’s the way the devil operates. Fear not, because God doesn’t just know the answer He IS the answer. Check this out. “… for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not.” (Hebrews 13:5 AMP) You see, when you have a REAL relationship with God, HE takes care of you like any good father should. He’s on your side. Others may leave you, but He won’t. This verse say’s God WILL NOT, WILL NOT, WILL NOT in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake you or relax His hold on you!
YOU + YOUR CREATOR = YOU’RE NEVER ALONE
