Matthew 19:26

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

That, my friends, is as simple as it gets.  God will be blessing your day today, and week, with impossible miracles becoming not only possible but commonplace.

Let’s try and still get on our knees together and give thanks as we watch God breathe life into our relationships, profession, finances, calling, family and our heart for others.

You have been waiting a very long time for this…”WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

Have a super day and a blessed week!!

In Revelation 1, John is commanded twice by Jesus to “write the things you see.” First, he is “In the Spirit.” Are you?

In the Spirit? How does one get in “the Spirit?”

Let me suggest if you “are in Christ you are a new creation.” So, once saved, the Holy Spirit is already living inside your heart.” At salvation, the Spirit has been invited as a “seal” to dwell in your body. We are told our “body is the temple of Christ.”

The real question then, perhaps is this, are you and I available and will we be obedient to what God is actually asking of us or directing us to?

Later, after John is initially obedient, he is given more opportunity and responsibility. He is told now to, “write the things that were, are and will be.” He is given the honor of writing the divine outline and eventually the entire book of Revelation which is the glorious end of the ultimate love story of God pursuing His bride (you and me and of course ultimately the Jews), and redeeming us for His glory and an eternity of “eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor entered into the heart of man the things God has prepared for us…”

Amazing…but it all starts with being saved…are you? Anyone you can lead to the Lord today? Then, are you and I willing to say yes when the Holy Spirit guides and directs us to go somewhere or do something that for each of us, may be really hard?

“Obedience is better than sacrifice.” So, today let’s try and obey the small prompting from the Holy Spirit in our lives. You will be so encouraged and blessed when the actual plan God has for you is so much more amazing than what your fears told you to avoid.

God’s love for you is immeasurable and it is His “perfect love casts out fear,” that is fully available for you today. 🙏😉🔥

Revelation 1

John, was isolated on Patmos. The Alcatraz of its day. He had seen all his friends martyred. He was…ALONE. But it was here he saw heaven. In his despair he saw into heaven…he heard Jesus’ voice like a trumpet. It caused John to “turn” to see what he had heard.

Remember John lived with Jesus for three years. But when he heard Jesus’ voice it caused him to turn…and he actually saw THE SON OF MAN…Jesus in His glorified body…not at all like the comely Jesus in Isaiah.

John was placed in a radically new location physically so he could experience Jesus spiritually in a radically new way so that, he could receive a new revelation or unveiling to be transcribed for you and me.

Where do you sense the Lord is placing you or has placed you in what seems like an isolated and sad and scary place? Could it be you are not being punished, but instead are being preserved and placed in a place for something greater, amazing and well beyond anything you have ever experienced?

Today, let’s be open to not being in self pity over friends, family, dreams or memories that have been a part of our past. Look up and allow the Lord to speak fresh and new to us because…like John, even though he had been with Jesus for thee years, when he “turned” and heard Jesus’ voice, “I fell at His feet as if dead.”

Amazing…humility and power mixed together…remember Revelation is all about…the Lord who:


He still has amazing things in store you you and me today! 🙏🔥👊🏼

“Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and also took Titus with me. And I went up by revelation, and communicated to them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those who were of reputation, lest by any means I might run, or had run, in vain.”
Galatians 2:1‭-‬2 NKJV

A FRIEND, A FRUIT, A REVELATION, AND THE TRUTH…When taking big steps, these ingredients are the recipe for success!😁👍 Paul was flying in the face of centuries of tradition. The new thing is always the hardest to implement with the old guard. Be bold. Be respectful. Be prayed up and prepared.✌❤🔥

In Rev 1:3 we are told “blessed are those who read and hear these words.” First, you just got blessed!

Second, John had to turn and hear the voice of the Lord. God was moving in his life in a very different way than the past. Remember, John had been persecuted, boiled in oil, cast out and isolated among other things.

Finally, where is God wanting to speak to you and me differently? Where is His voice really different this time for each of us?

Perhaps, your life beginning today will take a very different turn as the Lord takes your pain and heartache and turns it into a Revelation that will help save…your call, life, family, world…
