       My prayer is that God will use me to edify the church and to bring Him glory. I do, however, realize that I can do nothing without the Lord's help. I am nothing without Him.

       The Bible says that we should stir up the gift within us. (II Timothy 1:6) The gifts of the Holy Spirit which God has given us. Years ago, I would allow the Lord to write through me and it was powerful. I don't know why, but I have not done this in quite some time.

       Proverbs 16:1 says, "The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord."

       When you prayerfully seek the Lord and acknowledge Him, you will find Him. He has promised to direct your steps, guide your path and to give you a proper word in due season. (Mark 13:11) Remember, Jesus said, "My sheep will hear my voice and a stranger they will not follow." (John 10:3-5)

       Those who belong to God, know His voice.

       As I yielded to the Holy Spirit, though I am weak, the Lord gave me this message:

       I am about to strengthen my church and equip my church so that they can be who I called them to be and do what I called them to do. For too long have my people been a laughing stock, and seemingly powerless in the face of adversity.

       I will reveal my right arm says the Lord. I will reveal my strength so that all the world may see and know that I am God and my people are not forsaken.

       Stand strong my people. Resist the devil. For he knows that his time is short and is full of wrath. Yet I will strike him down one last time into an eternal destruction. Fear not for I am with you to help you. I will not allow the enemy to destroy you.

       You will suffer many things but you will prevail and bring Me much glory, for I have ordained you to bring Me glory.

       Rejoice and be glad says the Lord. I am your strength. I am with you and I will help you.
