This is an excerpt from my book, Breaking Generational Sin: Establishing Righteousness to the Next Generation. A cursed life is a lifestyle apart from God and His Kingdom principles and blessings. Now, we understand according to His Word that the Kingdom of God, everybody has a definition but God has a definition for the Kingdom … Continue reading Reestablishing the Kingdom of God in Your Life

I have been in the middle of two major transactions - purchasing and selling a home. Now that we are settling into our new home, our focus now turns to our old home. Selling our home is a learned process which I haven’t done in about 13 years but I do know someone who does.
I have previously shared in the post, Art of Adoption(s): Unless the Lord Builds the House, regarding the home the Lord gave to us in order to build our family. It shares how my wife, myself, and Joshua moved into a large home with lots of room for God to build our family from three to nine.
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37 Paul who wrote this in his letter to the Romans was a Roman himself and knew Roman conquerors and their history. The Roman empire did not achieve world dominance by being nice. They took it by force.
When Paul used the analogy of the Roman soldier to the believers in how that should cloth themselves in God, he stressed the importance of armoring our feet with the 'gospel of peace.' "and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace." Ephesi- ans 6:10-17 NIV The shoes or sandals of Roman soldiers would have been strategically prepared for optimum warfare. In order to have better footing in battle, they would place nails or spikes in the bottom of their shoes. The common day sports cleat would have nothing on these ancient armor practices.
There are three parts of Joshua 1:8 that God has provided for meditating on His Word . . .
The enemy, Satan, loves to thwart what God has designed and established for His people. Perusing through a self-help section of a bookstore, you will find many books about mediating - "10 Ways to Meditate" or "Finding Your Place to Meditate." Know that every time Satan devises smokescreens, he is definitely counterfeiting something real and established by God. The devil never created anything! Since he is the father of lies, he falsifies and imitates the things of God. I have found that God says a lot about meditating and specifically meditating on the Word of God.
I am fortunate to pastor a church located minutes away from one of the world's largest and busiest airports, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, in Atlanta, Georgia. Pastoring a church so close to an international airport has afforded me the opportunity to pastor and meet many pilots.
How does a person in their 20's or 30's write an autobiography? Like the ocean's tide, our lives are always changing. Our story today will not be the whole story tomorrow. It will only be in part.
