You should celebrate your survival. Instead of agonizing over your tragedies, you should celebrate your victory and thank God you made it. I charge you to step over your adversity and walk into the newness.---T.D.Jakes

God's Cedar Chest

Is your heart broken because of immoral relationships-perhaps incest-that took place in your home when you were young and vulnerable? Women who have a desperate need for male attention have usually come from a s situation where there have been no positive male role models in the home. Since they didn't get enough nurturing as girls, they find it easy to compromise and agree to do anything to gain male acceptance and love.

Millions of women have longed for a loving embrace from fathers who walked out on them or were never around. If you're one of those women, there is a way to fill the emptiness inside. The Lord will fill that void in your life. He wants to be the heavenly Father who will mend your heart. Through His Spirit, He wants to hold you. He wants to give you a hug.

Look for His helpers in the Church. Many men are learning that a woman who is not their wife is to be treated as a sister. Big brothers protect their little sisters' they do not take advantage of them. A brotherly and sisterly love does not include sexual intimacy or self-gratification.

The Song of Solomon shows a progression of the relationship between the writer and his wife. She was his "sister" before she was his bride. Solomon wrote of protecting a little sister. "Enclose her with boards of cedar" (see Song of Solomon 8:9). The Church is God's cedar chest!

God's people are to nurture and protect one another. It makes no difference how turbulent your past life has been, God still cares. Allow Him the privilege of doing what Absalom did for Tamar. When Tamar lay outside Amnon's door-broken and brutally violated-Absalom took er in and cared for her (see 2 Samuel 13:19-20).

The secret of being transformed from a vulnerable victim to a victorious, loving person is found in the ability to open your past to someone responsible enough to share your weakness and pain. There can be no better first step toward deliverance than to find Christian counselor or pastor, and come out of hiding. If you seek God's guidance and the help of competent leadership, you will find someone who can help you work through your pain and suffering. The Church is a body. No one operates independent of another. We are all in this together.---T.D.Jakes

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.

Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.

He had no army, yet kings feared Him.

He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.

I feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us!

God's Blessing is Over Flowing!

Have A Blessed Day

Treasure Within You

Something inside of you has been locked up. God wants to unlock it. He knows what gifts and abilities and dreams He has put in you. He knows how to touch them and how to bring them out.
When you get beyond your low self-esteem and stop comparing yourself to other people, and you begin to accept what God has given you, then you are in a position for Him to bring to birth all He has created you to be.
There are things in you that have been overlooked by you, ignored by others, perhaps even ridiculed by some, but God calls those traits His treasure. And He wants to bring it forth.
Every man and woman alive is a treasure chest. Each one holds something God intends for them to use in fulfilling His purpose for their life. And in the process, they will bring Him glory. My brother, my sister, find out what treasure God has hidden in you, because the devil is going to fight you for it. He knows the treasure is there and he wants for his purposes. He wants it bad.
So many people today are fight the devil and don't even know why. It's because they haven't discovered the treasure that lies within them. The devil knows it's there. God knows it's there. So the fight is on.
Your treasure is powerful in God's service, and the devil knows it. What he doesn't know is that your treasure is also a weapon you can use to defeat him in your life. The devil will do anything the can to sabotage your self-esteem. He doesn't want you developing your assets because he doesn't want you to give birth to what God has put within you. Being loosed means that your treasure has been released. It means that the gift has been bound within you has been issued an emancipation proclamation. It means that you are free to blossom and bring forth fruit! When the treasure within you is loosed, you are at liberty to deliver God's purpose in your life.
Now giving birth may require intense effort on your part. You may have to push like a woman in labor. You may have to fill your cheeks with air and push with all your might. So get ready, son and daughter of the living God, and soon you'll hold a treasure in your arms.---T.D. Jakes
