There is trouble to be had in this world, but take heart, Jesus has overcome the world. If you are in Christ and Christ is in you, then you have overcome the world too. Rest in the truth today. - Pastor Jimmy

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Grace wins.

Don’t think for a second that God cannot use you because of your missteps and mistakes.

He qualifies those whom He calls, and God will take your mess and turn it into a masterpiece for His glory. - Pastor Jimmy

It’s interesting how Jesus has been portrayed in art and print. He looks more like the suffering servant than the One who was anointed with the oil of joy more than anyone else.

Jesus and joy are synonymous. Joy is the second fruit of the Spirit after love and before peace. Interesting placement in the list of the nine virtues of the Spirit’s presence.

If you are filled with the One who is anointed with the oil of joy, then you too are anointed with joy. Today, let your life reflect and radiate the fruit of joy. - Pastor Jimmy

The way you start your day sets the tone for the rest of the day. Try starting with, “Good Morning Holy Spirit,” then spend time in prayer, scripture, worship, and conversation with your Heavenly Father. He wants to hear from you.

Try using this simple acronym: “A.C.T.S.” Adoration. Celebration. Thanksgiving. Supplication. Notice that praying for issues comes last after focusing your affection and attention on Him. Perhaps you have another acronym that’s been helpful. Feel free to share. - Pastor Jimmy

It is not unusual to face situations which require wisdom that is way beyond us. We need help. We need counsel. We need answers.

As one who has been born-again and filled with the Spirit, you have the mind of Christ. Those who are maturing know they can draw upon His wisdom to navigate the complexities of life.

Do you need wisdom today? Pray, “Father, thank you for the gift of the Mind of Christ. I draw upon your wisdom and by faith I move forward according to Your Word. I have the mind of Christ. Amen.” - Pastor Jimmy
