My Purpose, I Leave You!

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.-John 14:12 (emphasis mine)

Much of our lives is spent wondering, "What am I purposed to do on this earth?" We try our hands at different things, based on the skills we have, the talents and abilities we possess, and if they would truly fulfill us, to create the feeling that-what we do really matters to others. But have we ever stopped to consider what Jesus would have us to do?

When Jesus gathered with His disciples in preparation for His crucifixion, He made it very clear as to what we would be able to do once He left. Before He departed this earth, He told His disciples that He would send another Comforter (the Holy Spirit) to assist us. He said in His Word,

"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him; but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you"-John 14:16-18

The Holy Spirit is within you to help and to give you power from on high to do greater works than even Jesus did. Why? God chose you to work through to fulfill His purpose in the earth. So that He may be glorified!

But not only that, He said that if you ask ANYTHING, in His Name (the name of Jesus), that will He also do! (John 14:13-14). That means at the name of Jesus, demons flee, burdens are removed, yokes are destroyed, sicknesses and diseases are healed, and people are set FREE! Don't ever under-estimate the power of God to perform, nor that He has chosen you to use the authority of God that's within you to be a blessing for someone's situation!

Remember it's not about our own strengths or abilities. It's the Master Helper (The Holy Spirit) that gives you the power and the anointing to perform in ways you never could on your own. Ask the Holy Spirit to come and give you what you need to be a blessing to others. Amen!

When we donít know what to do, God does. When we canít seem to find our way, God can. When our strength has failed, Godís strength takes over and allows us, in our weakness, to be strong. I can tell you a time (many actually) when my needs were far greater than anything I could ever imagine. I needed my bills paid, food for my family, and a new vehicle. I was trying to make ends meet and didnít know how we were going to make it through. Find out what happened next inside...
In 2012, you went through some very hard times; you were tested on every side, even oppressed, stressed, and depressed, and just couldnít understand why God would not bring you through. But it didn't mean that God was not concerned or that He didnít know about your situation. There was a reason for your testing, and He allowed you to go through because on the other side, there would be a strong testimony. He determined that you would be able to handle it. And He knew that through this process, you would remain faithful. Find out what happens next inside...
There may have been many times in life when you have been shunned, pushed aside, abandoned, abused, told you would never be anybody, the last one to be called upon, and made to feel like God has not called you. But do you know that it is often people who have gone through those instances that God has favored the most? There are many examples in the Bible where God took those that were the least of them, and made them prominent in the land. He can take what's next to nothing and make something great out of it. He can take what's unpopular, and make a spectacle of it, all for His glory. He can even take the impossible that has happened in your life, the very thing that everyone feels will never come to pass, and cause it to happen in a second, bringing you from the backdrop to the forefront. Why? Because God is the God of the Possible. Read more inside...
