· "For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?" (1 Cor 4:7) Leaders, let's not be so haughty and arrogant. It's a NEW SEASON!
· People of God, let's honour our leaders by respecting their money, time, personal space and privacy. Oftentimes, we forget that they also have families, their own bills and require rest. Be mindful, that they are not abused for taken for granted. Honour is more than giving praise... it's also allowing one to have privacy and time enough for their own personal relationship with God. It's a NEW SEASON!
· Many say their gifts are prostituted by the local church. Now is the time to take responsibility and become a good steward over what God has given you. When God's people use their gifts to build the Kingdom rather than to entertain, things will change! It's a NEW SEASON!
· People of God, if you have a pastor and/or spiritual leader, that person should be a resource for you. If every time the enemy attacks, you have to call someone else, there is a problem. Don't tax to anointing on others only to run back to the abuse from which you desired to be healed. It's a NEW SEASON!
· Don't judge others by their pasts. It's amazing how God will use that very thing to make them great! God can redeem others, just as He's redeemed you. The latter shall be greater... It's a NEW SEASON!
· Pastors, don't be discouraged. If you have given your all, but been trampled upon, GIVE MORE! If you have prayed and cried, only to watch them turn away from God, PRAY MORE! It's a NEW SEASON!
· If you don't want the truth, don't ask a prophet! "Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" Galatians 4:16.
· PROPHETS, let me help you as I help myself. You are called to speak as God unctions you to speak. The truth of the mind and heart of God often includes correction. Just because a word is sharp doesn't mean it is "without love." Loving God's people means telling the truth. Where in the Bible was a prophet ever called to preach only words of inspiration, wealth and celebration? Selah.
· DO NOT FEAR! This is the season for God's people to stand up in the power of the Holy Ghost. When you serve the true and living God, there is no reason to fear anyone or anything else. Don't be weak. Don't back down. STAND! Psalm 127
· Wow! Garner has an American Idol. This town is on fire. I'm excited for him, because he's a nice, decent, Christian young man. Now, what if we could get a whole town this excited about Jesus??!! Not trying to damper a good night... I'm just saying!
· God requires excellence in worship and ministry. Never give Him anything less than your BEST. Excellence is the fruit of a fine balance between trusting God and giving God the ability to trust you. Amen.
· JESUS... That's my final answer!
