Have you ever said to yourself or anyone ever said to you, “Stop trippin’.”
“Stop trippin’?” you say with a blank look on your face.
Yes, stop trippin’!
It’s when you seemed to have bumped your head and forgotten who God really is, a problem arises in your life and you say that you are okay. You let people think that you are fine, but underneath all of that you are ready to fall apart. The enemy really begins to come at you with all kinds of stuff: “See, I told you that you were not good enough” or “I told you that you were going to mess up again” or l told you that God would not allow this to happen.”
It’s happened too many times that we allow the enemy to creep in and steal our joy, peace, and happiness. We allow him to say what he will say and roll right on off the scene, leaving us sitting there looking like a deer in headlights. What happened to us fighting?

For those of us that are stuck in the place of deliberation, stuck hypothesizing the possibility; there is a remedy. I, yes I, have been stuck. There were many days that went by after I had written out this book, by hand, that I would not start the process of typing it.

It is purposed in your mind. Continue reading

What is my purpose? This question plagues so many people today. And to be honest many of the people who don’t know become paralyzed because they don’t have the answer.

Are you an island unto yourself? You don’t need church or friends because you can do it all by your lonesome. You can pray for yourself, you don’t need anyone to intercede for you. You don’t need to go to church, because after all, you can read the Word for yourself. Ever met anyone like that?
The problem with this kind of thinking is we isolate ourselves and make ourselves an easy target for the enemy. We all need someone to pray with and for us. Suppose you are unconscious or your body is racked with pain? You may not be able to pray, but if you have a friend, that person can intercede on your behalf. Suppose you are tempted in a certain area – don’t Continue reading
