Be water

I just watched a documentary on Bruce Lee. “Be Water” it was called. Bruce Lee was saying that if you pour water in a cup, the water becomes the cup, if you pour it in a bottle, it becomes the bottle, water can flow but water can crush.

Roller coaster

We might be up and down internally, because of emotions or externally because of circumstances. Sometimes life looks like a rollercoaster. When we are at the bottom, we can’t wait to be up there to enjoy the view. When we are at the top, we would like to stay there forever.

Running away?

Don’t be kidding yourself, my friend! If you are reading this post it’s only because something resonated in you when you read the title. There are no accidents in life and I will go straight: you are running away from something instead of running towards it.

Fun vs Joy

I noticed a huge difference between those two. This came up to me this morning while I was having a shower.

I was feeling very good because my mind was following the desires of the spirit: the true me. And after spending a good hour reading and writing from the Source, I was enjoying the hot water flowing on my body.

Life in you

Yes! Life has always been in you even if you could not see Life.

I found out that what flows out of me variates according to who is talking to me. I used to be a people pleaser trying to adapt my personality to everyone so they can feel comfortable. Even though I know there was a genuine desire to make room for my neighbour, I was doing this out of the strength of my flesh, not of my spirit.

School uniform

ol uniform sometimes. You have humans together, animals together, trees together, fishes together and so on. We all have breath of life but all in different categories. What is true with a school uniform is also so true with us. Behind the same kind, we have different personalities which makes life so beautiful.

Learning from experience #fear

During our journey on earth, we will experience a lot of things if we allow ourselves to get out of our comfort zone. If we allow ourselves to take some risks, stepping in faith, we might be unsettled at the beginning but the overall experience will always be beneficial to us.

Power of believing

Jesus was not talking lightly or metaphorically when he said:
Generally speaking, we know how to ask things to God but the problem is that we struggle to believe.
We struggle to believe and this is where to real power to receive is.
Abraham’s faith was tested by time but he eventually got the son he believed God for.

Under subjection

We are spiritual beings but have physical bodies. Our bodies made of flesh help us to communicate with the physical but as spirits, our source and identity are found in our Heavenly Father who is also spirit.

“God is spirit”, Jesus said in John 4:24.

And because we have been created as his image it’s a no-brainer to understand that we are spirit too!

This said, how do we interact with our earthly bodies of flesh? And the answer is where this title starts to make sense. We need to keep our bodies under the subjection of the spirit.

Not by sight

Praise the Lord! We live by faith and not by sight. I know this statement will be overlooked by many, ignored by some but resonate in a few.

Those who know that we live in the world but we are not of it.
Those who know that we are citizens of heaven, on a journey on this earth.

Don’t quit!

This morning, I struggled so much to get out of bed. Once month ago, I committed to write everyday but this morning was very challenging. While I was in bed, I was thinking about all kind of excuses to not getting up. “I’m tired! I can take a morning off! etc..” but eventually after spending almost 1 hour fighting against myself, I decided that I was going to write about what I was about to do this morning: Quit!

Living word

Take to 30 seconds. Breath in. Breath out. then ponder on those two words: “Living word”
The word is alive and very much so. The word lives and can give life to those who receive it. The word is alive in your heart and when you release it, becomes alive in the world around you.

Do you realize the power of this word that lies in your heart?

All connected

Yes, we are, my friend.

We are all connected whether we agree with it or not. The human race is one. One kind in the universe.

We have the same breath of life that makes us be, talk or move. We share the same story under the sun as we all come from the same parents Adam and Eve.

Fire inside

Praise the Lord, we have the Spirit!

I was talking to a friend yesterday over the phone and it was just amazing. We spent over 1 hour encouraging each other in to walk in the Spirit of God.

We agreed that God created us for much more than what we are doing. We both knew that we should be living lives like Jesus lived….

Keep going

You’ll make it today! Keep believing, keep going. Don’t let the obstacles make you think you are inadequate or not skilled enough. You have something in you which makes you stand out. Something special.

You are a gift to this world, a gift given by God to your family, your friends, your neighbours, your city, your country, your generation.

The Truth

It is true that there is a lot of confusion nowadays but it is equally true that the Truth exists and stands out for those who look for it. For those who are willing to receive it.

And the Truth was made flesh so human beings can understand the language of the Truth. The Truth has been speaking for a long time until now. The Truth still speaks but many don’t listen.

Pause

Sometimes we need to take a pause, sit down and take a long breath. This seems to be so simple and insignificant but the truth is there is a lot of power in a pause.
A pause seems so weak against the mountain of activities we schedule to ourselves each day and that’s why many people don’t take the time to pause.

Perseverance

Her hope was keeping her going. Hope that the change that did not happen today can occur tomorrow.
Perseverance will keep you going where others give up.

A Well

You are a well of fresh water for those around you. Did you know this?
You might not feel it or even believe it but when I see you spiritually I see only goodness, gifts, joy and peace.​

Turn it on!

It’s time to tell doubt to go away from you. Command it to go and not to come back! Tell him that you will not listen to his lies anymore. Doubt is a spirit that brings confusion to the human mind. He is floating around us every day and tries everything he can to get into our minds.

Sealed

You are in Him and He is in you. We are in him and he is in us. We are united, married, sealed in Him and nothing, nothing can separate us from him.

No one is strong enough to come and pull you out of him.
Nobody is powerful enough to command him to let you down.

Not a mistake

You are not an error or a mistake! You are not a physical body. You are a spirit who has a body of flesh. You are a spirit as your Heavenly Father. God is spirit and you have been made at his image.

More than them

We are more Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child, burst into song, you who were never in labour, because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband. Isaiah 54:1 Praise the Lord who gives revelation through his word! I join with Isaiah saying “Rejoice […]

The Royal grace

Released by the King In love, he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus-Christ, in accordance to his pleasure and will to the praise of his glorious grace which he has freely given us in the one he loves. Ephesians 1:5-6 Each year in France on July 14th we celebrate the National day. It’s obviously a […]

Against Your Soul

On going war Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. 1 Peter 2:11 This could seem scary if you are lead by the flesh when you read it. When you are lead by the flesh, you are dominated by all […]

Being at rest

In your word A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! Psalm 84:10 I want to encourage you tonight. And my hope is that the words that you are going to hear will minister to you. We cannot live without words because life has been created by the Word and […]

Under his feet

Not some but All things! And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, Ephesians 1:22 Praise the Lord for this wonderful revelation! Not one thing or some but things but all things have been placed under Christ’s feet.

Learn to depend

Following the Spirit When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help […]

For the church

For us And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:22-23 Praise the Lord for his word! Paul is telling the Ephesians that God placed all things under Jesus’ feet […]

My soul rejoices

Inside of me And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD; It shall exult in His salvation. Psalm 35:9 Like the psalmist, my soul rejoices because the Spirit of God lives inside of me.

Greetings from God

To you Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus-Christ. Ephesians 1:2 The apostle Paul always mentioned something like the above in all his letters recorded in the new testament.

Follower or disciple ?

Which one are you? From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. John 6:66-67. This portion of scripture is very interesting as it reveals to us that every disciple is a follower but every follower is not a disciple.

Pray with joy :)

Always In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel since the beginning until now […]. Philippians 1:4-5 Paul says here that he always pray with joy. What a great example to follow! Knowing that we are saved and in constant fellowship with the […]

Commanded to love

Really ? And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. 2 John 5-6 I […]

You are included

In Christ And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:1-14 We are […]

Husbands, keep going!

We won’t give up. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27 As husbands and […]

Knowledge and skills

They are available Then the Lord said to Moses, 2 “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, 3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 5 to cut and set stones, […]

Build yourself up!

Speak in tongues Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. 1 Corinthians 14:4 I know this subject has created a lot of misunderstanding in the body of Christ but the word of God remains the Truth even if men struggle to understand and apply it correctly. The gift of […]

With a seal

It’s NOT a human being who marked us with a seal in Christ. It’s the God who created the whole universe.

Faith without action ?

Not working In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied with action is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds and I will show you my faith by what I do. James 1:17-18 You cannot separate action from faith ! They […]

It is I

Jesus Is But he said so them, “It is I; don’t be afraid”. John 6:20 Praise the Lord! The disciples were in a boat struggling because of a strong wind and rough waters. Jesus was not in the boat, it was dark and they were terrified when they saw someone walking on the water toward […]

Words of life

Life indeed! My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. Proverbs 4:20-22 Amen!!!!!! Have you read this verse above ? Wowwww!! […]

Look toward heaven

And Pray After Jesus said this he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son that your Son may glorify you.” John 17:1 Jesus came on earth the show the way to God and He himself is the way. He life in the flesh was the perfect example of how […]

Moved by compassion

Jesus was moved Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way. Matthew 15:32 I am so blessed to see how compassion can […]

Child like faith

Humble yourself Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 The promises of our Heavenly Father will never be fulfilled in our lives if we do not receive them with a child like faith. The Lord made it really simple […]

At the altar

Sacrifice for Him Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve […]

He is waiting

We are his bride For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. Ephesians 5:31-32 Praise the Lord! 2000 years ago, Christ left his Father in heaven […]

Behind the curtain

We have access At that moment, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. Matthew 27:52 Praise the Lord for his goodness! What a glorious moment for all mankind, that moment when the curtain was torn in two. That curtain had been designed […]

Washing with water

Being washed Husbands love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word […] Ephesians 5:25-26 Praise the Lord for his word! We know that words can destroy us or they can build us, They can […]

Raise above fear

It’s possible There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 I remember when I was a child in the Caribbean, I was about 13 years old. I remember being literally terrorized by […]

Afraid of going ?

He watches you For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous but the way of the wicked will perish. Psalm 1:6 Many times when it’s time to make a decision about such or such direction we are afraid of the unknown. Sometimes we know that the Lord is with us but because we […]

Not against humans

We are spiritual beings For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual evil forces in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12 Praise the Lord for his word! Our heavenly Father decided to make things plain […]

Good and evil or God?

Which knowledge ? And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” Genesis 3:16-17 A question which is interesting to […]

Body of Christ

We are his body And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:22-23 It might be challenging for normal minds to imagine that we are the body of Christ […]

For the church

For us And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:22-23 Praise the Lord for his word! Paul is telling the Ephesians that God placed all things under Jesus’ feet […]

Live from above

Remain in Heaven Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Colossians 3:2 If you are born again, your new home is Heaven. You are not going to heaven, you are already seated in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 2:6 Your body is still bound to the […]

Sons of God

We are indeed He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Christ Jesus in accordance with his glorious grace which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Ephesians 1:5 We have been adopted! Wow! We were orphans on this earth not knowing where to go and what to do but […]

Know him better

Wisdom and revelation I keep asking the God of out Lord Jesus-Christ, the glorious Father that he may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17 Praise the Lord! Paul writes here to the Ephesians and tell them that he keeps asking God to give them something […]

My soul rejoices

Inside of me And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD; It shall exult in His salvation. Psalm 35:9 Like the psalmist, my soul rejoices because the Spirit of God lives inside of me. My soul is full of joy and peace and love and patience and faith and gentleness and meekness and self-control and […]

Nothing shall separate

A done deal For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 There are some […]

They were naked

In the garden I love the atmosphere of intimacy and trust which was reigning in Eden. That was the sixth day and everything was ready to welcome the most important part of Our Father’s mighty work. The human beings. God had decided to create us at his image and likeness so he can see himself […]

Following the Spirit When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas.

Not one thing or some but things but all things have been placed under Christ’s feet. That includes: Fear, worries, deception, sadness, […]

Are you worried?

The Universal solution So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew […]

Power for us

For us who believe I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.  Ephesians 1:18-19 Praise the Lord for his generosity […]

Remain in me

We are the branches I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 Yes! Our wonderful Lord is the vine and we are his branches. What a privilege and an honour to be part of […]

Speak unto yourself

Speak to your soul Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—Psalm 103:1-2 David in this psalm was speaking to himself as he was going through a difficult time. I’m sure he was not feeling to praise the Lord but he knew in himself that the […]

Open his eyes!

Seeing spiritually And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17 You certainly came across this story in the old testament. The prophet and his […]

The new Eden

I’m home This is where I belong and where I dwell now. My ancestors had been put out of the garden because of disobedience and they had been cut off from the source of life. The consequences of a life without the Father were so destructive.  Pain, depression, sicknesses, sorrow, hatred, envy, jealousy, love of […]

Children of light

Shining in darkness Praise the name of our Father in heaven who delivered us from darkness. We were blind, in bondage, following the train of this world. We were slaves, under the dominion of the deceiver. The one who came to  steal, kill and destroy. We were afraid of him. We were like preys in […]

You are loved!

No doubt, you are loved! You have not been created by accident. You are not on earth by chance or by mistake but you are the result of a plan created by the Father. You have always belonged to him. You have always been in his heart. This is where your place is. In his […]

Mighty woman

In the Spirit I  met Sister Donia during my Pentecostal experience and I am so glad The Lord brought her in my life. She is an old widow from Africa, living with her son and her niece. She spends all her time in the scriptures, in prayer and in fasting, trusting the Lord for every single […]

Second attempt

All about persistence In April 2017, I began to feel the desire to put myself available for the Lord again. I knew I had done it before and it had not worked out as I was expecting. But I also knew that I had learned humility and I was willing to learn more with the […]

Shame then Glory

Nothing is wasted In March 2015, I was listening to some tapes of Charles Finlay about revival and I began to feel an urge to put myself available for God. I was still working at the Law firm where I met Fermina but I knew that when the Lord calls you, he takes care of you. […]

Pentecostal Experience

Spirit and Works One day, my wife handed to me a leaflet for a Christian concert with rap music, reggae and so on. I was not deeply moved to go as I still had painful memories regarding Rap with Christ. For some reason she was insisting that I should go as I would like it. […]

Trusting for finances

Giving to the Lord In June 2013, I made a step of faith in the area of finances. This changed my way of thinking and my approach when it comes to finances. I remember hearing my pastor preaching on tithing and that was quite new for me. I was born in the spirit in a […]

Methodist friends

Next to the house I was saved in the Baptist Church in 2002 but since I was baptised in the Spirit in January 2012, denomination was not an issue for me. I was more interested in hearing from the Lord and go wherever he would send me and do whatever he would like me to […]

Number 11

Darkness before light The year 2011 was full of important events for me. My wife became pregnant early in February which  was a good news!!! I was praying the Lord for a boy as we already had a five years old girl; but I was quite flexible and would be happy whatever gender it was […]
