Friends, isn’t it amazing how time seems to fly nowadays. January, 2014 is behind us and we welcome this peaceful month of February. I trust that God has kept you well and that as He promised in January you have entered into your season of favor.  My wife and I are well and are thankful for your prayers. Please know that we love you and pray for you.  

This month, the Lord will arise and prove Himself to be your Shepherd. He will bring uncommon provision your way in Jesus mighty name. Amen. This will be to you a Month of Uncommon Provisions.

In Psalm 23:1, David declares the following, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want,…”

Our finite minds are limited and we tend to think small. We forget that we serve a BIG God who owns everything. The Bible tells us that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof (Psalm 24:1); that silver and gold belong to Him (Haggai 2:8) and that He owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). God is able to do and will do for you much more than you can think or imagine in Jesus powerful name. Amen.

I will let you into a secret. “’No eye has seen, no ear has heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things God has in store for you”(1 Corinthians 2:9). The plans which God has for you are not for evil but for good to give you a future and an expected end. This is your season!

Friend, when God is your Shepherd, you essentially have given Him the responsibility of meeting your needs. If He feeds the birds of the air, will He not feed you? (Matthew 6:26). My Friend, God will meet all your needs including, all your financial needs in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Remember that God is the owner of silver and gold and He has promised to supply all of your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. He is The Almighty God and with Him, nothing is impossible.

Is your need a touch of His healing virtue? He is the Balm of Gilead. God is still the Chief Physician, the Great Surgeon and His name is Jehovah Rapha – The Lord our Healer. He says in the Book of Jeremiah, “I will heal your wounds and restore health unto you…” (Jeremiah 30:17a). Friend, this is your portion in Jesus mighty name. Amen. I speak to cancer and command it to go; diabetes disappear; high/low blood pressure normalize; arthritis vanish; every manner of sickness bow in Jesus powerful name. Amen.

Perhaps your need is not financial but a relationship that needs to be restored. Perhaps it’s your marriage or the relationship with your children or other member of our family. It may even be a relationship with a friend or a colleague. God says through the Prophet Joel that He will restore the years that the locusts have eaten. Friend, every year that you feel has been lost to you, those years that seem to have been wasted because there is nothing that you have to show for them, God will restore them to you in Jesus precious name. Amen.  For 400 years the children of Israel were slaves in Egypt and had nothing to show for all their hard work but in one day!!! Just one day!! Praise God! God turned things around. They were rewarded for all their years of labor and this God forced their employer to pay them. Your day of change is here in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

This month, God wants to prove to you that He is your Shepherd and for sure He is. He will grant you the desires of your heart. He says, “Ask and it shall be given; seek and you shall find; knock and the door shall be open.” Matthew 7:7 He says “Call unto me and I will answer and show you great and mighty things that you do not know”. Friend, today, call on the Good Shepherd, The Trusted Shepherd, The Knowledgeable Shepherd, The Ever-Faithful Shepherd and see Him meet all your needs in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Never forget, because the Lord is your Shepherd, you will not want or suffer shame in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

May the Lord be with you and bless you.
