Not now does not mean never.

Isaiah 40:31 (AMPC)
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

1 Peter 5:6-7 (AMPC)
Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you. Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.


Everything a Season

The Lord knows which season you are in. Don’t let other people, the Devil, or self-doubt stop you from obeying the leading of the Holy Spirit. Just remember, there is no season for going against His Word, and Jesus is always in season. Lastly, be very careful and prayerful when reproving, rebuking, and exhorting others, because you may not know what season they are in.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (AMPC)

To everything there is a season and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted,

3 A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up,

4 A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

6 A time to get and a time to lose, a time to keep and a time to cast away,

7 A time to rend and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak,

8 A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.


Peace is not the absence of obstacles but the confidence to overcome.

John 16:33 (AMPC)
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]


Jesus died on the Cross, not only to forgive us of our sins but also to enable us to live the Christian Life.

Romans 6:3-4
Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.

Jesus, the Cross, and the Holy Spirit

If one has a relationship with Jesus Christ (trusting, relying on, and understanding Who He Is and the Sacrifice He made for us) then one’s faith is automatically in the Cross. If one does not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then one’s faith is not in the Cross, no matter how much one may talk, think, or pray about it.

The Cross does not eliminate the need to listen to and heed the Holy Spirit. The Cross is the means by which we receive direction. If one has an understanding of the Cross but rejects the leading of the Spirit, it will hinder one’s relationship with Christ.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Romans 6:13
13 Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness.

Hebrews 3:15
15 Then while it is [still] called Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion [in the desert, when the people provoked and irritated and embittered God against them].

Revelation 3:22
22 He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the [Holy] Spirit says to the assemblies (churches).


The minister’s job is to point people to Christ, not to be His replacement. Don’t always look to man for the answers. Humans can only help us to a certain extent. At some point or another, we must all learn to seek God for ourselves


The hardest and most important part of being a teacher is giving our students the freedom to fail and the time to learn from their own mistakes.
