July 24th Worship Service – Look For the Signs

Moses and the Israelites wandered in the wilderness for forty years. For them the wilderness was a place of absolute uncertainty not knowing when they would enter into the Promise Land. In spite of the unknown, they knew God was in them and would guide them. Likewise, as you and I encounter the unknown, the same God who was with the Israelites, is the same God who is with us, and He will lead us to the fulfillment of His Promises.


July 17th Worship Service – Look For the Cloud

In Exodus following their deliverance from Egypt, Moses and the Israelites wandered in the wilderness.   The wilderness is the place of the unknown, the place of absolute uncertainty where we know what we don’t know.  However, in the midst of the Israelites wandering, God provided a cloud b



July 10th Worship Service – The Miracle of Manna

In Exodus Moses delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt, the land of bondage. As they crossed through the Red Sea, they found themselves wandering in the wilderness. What do you do, when you find yourself wandering through the barre

“Make Your Own Way”

Thought for Today: Make Your Own Way

There is something that needs to be done in and for your life, and this thing should have been done as of yesterday. You have been waiting on God, you have been praying to God, and you have been on the lookout for God to show up.  

The world, your flesh, and the devil are asking you “Where is God? When is God going to show up? How is God going to handle this?” And as you entertain these questions, the enemy of your soul has planted the thought in your head “YOU DO IT.”  

And they use this saying to convince you to answer your own prayers, “God won’t help anyone who won’t help themselves.” This is a lie from the pits of hell. Jesus said “I am the vine ye are the branches; He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING” (John 15:5).

I don’t know who I am talking to, but the worst thing you can do is MAKE YOUR OWN WAY to fulfill your needs. I know it seems long, I know it hurts, I know you are frustrated and maybe even angry that God has not answered your prayer.

I urge you, DON’T MAKE YOUR OWN WAY. “But, Pastor Erick, it hurts. I don’t know how I can go on, I don’t know if I can hold out for God to move. I just don’t see Him moving anytime soon in this situation.” The word of God says, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18). 

When God does reveal Himself in your situation and when God does answer your prayers, it will be far greater than your mind could have imagined. This is why the enemy is pushing you to MAKE YOUR OWN WAY. “For if you Wait on the Lord be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; wait I say on the Lord” (Psalms 27:14). 

If you MAKE YOUR OWN WAY it may be okay, it may even be good for now, but making your own way is falling into the trap of the devil from getting what God has for you, which will not just be okay, it will not just be good, it will be great. 

The word of God says, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). 

If the enemy can get you to MAKE YOUR OWN WAY, he can prevent you from getting what God has for you. Just because you can’t see God working on your situation does not mean He is not working.  

For it is written, “And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount (took too long) the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron and said unto him, ‘Up make us gods, which shall go before us; (LET’S MAKE OUR OWN WAY) for as this Moses the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt we wot not what is become of him’” (Exodus 32:1).

Don’t MAKE YOUR OWN WAY, God’s ways are so much better than our ways. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path” (Proverbs 3:5-6). The glory of God is far greater than the glory of man. 

Be Blessed.

“Right With God”

Thought for Today: RIGHT WITH GOD

There are many things that we do in life that we know are not right. And when those things happen, the devil hurries up, steps in, and says, “See, I told you that you are not right with God.” 

You try to do things in an attempt to make yourself right with God again. You begin to go to church more, you begin to pray more, you begin to read the word of God more, and you put on more worship music so that you can be right with God.  

You might not like what I am about to say, but going to church, reading the word of God, praying, and worshiping does not make you right with God.  

For the word of God says “For He (God the Father) hath made Him (Jesus the Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; THAT WE MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS (that we may be in right standing) of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). 

Going to church, reading your bible, praying, and worshiping God in spirit and in truth doesn’t make you right with God, but those things help keep you right with God.  

What does it mean to be right with God? Well, simply put, it means to be one with God. The world, your flesh, and the devil will tell you that you cannot be one with God. For if you are one with God, what’s His is yours and what’s yours is His.  

I am just going to put this right here in front of you so that you can make your own decision about being one with God. 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, “But he (she) that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” 

Here take a look at this one, “That they all (this means you) may BE ONE, as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they (this means you) also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory thou gavest me I have given them; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE EVEN AS WE ARE ONE” (John 17:21-22). 

I don’t know who I am talking to, but you need to know this truth that when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior that, and that alone, made you right with God. Listen to me, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Christ Jesus.  

Say it with me, “I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.” You are in right standing with God. Yes, you may fall. Yes, you will make mistakes and you will sin. But the word of God says, “But God commendeth His love towards us (God showed you just how much He loves you) in that while we (this means you) were yet sinners Christ died for us (this means you)” (Romans 5:8). 

The last thing the world, your flesh (feelings and/or emotions), and especially the devil want you to know and/or understand is that you are THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. 

For it is written, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS man (woman) AVAILETH MUCH” (James 5:16). 

When you truly accept the fact that Jesus paid the price for all your sins on the cross, past, present, and future, your love for Jesus will empower you to do your best to live a life that is pleasing to God.

Repent, ask God to help you, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. And know this, because you are right with God, your prayers will not only have an effect on you, but your prayers will have an effect on the world around you, as well.

Be Blessed

“Be Truthful With God”

Thought for Today: Be Truthful With God

There are many in this world who say they want to hear from God about a certain matter in their life. They either go to church to listen to the pastor, hoping that God will speak a word through them, or they listen to the preachers or teachers to hear a word from God.  

It’s not a bad thing to go to church in hopes of hearing a word from God. It’s not a bad thing to listen to the prophets, preachers, and/or teachers to get a word from God. But you must understand this truth: those are not the only ways to hear a word from God. 

I don’t know who I am talking to, but the pastors, preachers, and the prophets are merely instruments to lead, push, and/or guide you into your own personal relationship with God.  

You can hear from God for yourself. Yes, we still need the pastors, preachers, and the prophets, for the word of God says, “How then shall they call on him in who they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14).

But you have to put yourself in a position to hear from God, yourself. For the word of God says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we (this means you) may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). 

You have to put yourself in position to hear from God for yourself. The word of God says, “And ye shall seek me and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). 

In my 27 years of ministering, I have found that many don’t really want to hear from God themselves, they would rather wait to hear a word from God through the men or the women of God.  

Many don’t want to hear a word directly from God because of fear; fear of what God is going to see when He looks into their heart as He speaks to them, fear of what God is going to say to them because of the life that they are living, fear that God will beat them up or throw down the hammer of judgment because of the life they are living.  

The reason you don’t want to expose who you truly are in the presence of God is out of fear that He may see parts of you on the inside that are ugly. 

Listen to me, the word of God says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). Stop listening to the lies of the devil that tell you that God will punish you if you expose all that you are to Him.  

The word of God says, “But God commendeth His love towards us in that while we (this means you) were yet sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants to conform you into the image of Jesus, but you cannot be afraid to be truthful with God.

For it is written, “And they said to Moses, ‘Speak thou unto us (you speak to us Moses) and we will hear; but LET NOT GOD SPEAK WITH US LEST WE DIE’” (Exodus 20:18-19). 

There isn’t anything about you that God does not already know. Expose that ugly area of your life to God and be truthful with Him, for when you expose that area of your life to God, it gives Him permission to come in and change that area. Be Truthful with God today and Be Blessed.
