I really like the message. Peace is something the world no aspires to obain.
This blog post by Pure Glory was true and powerful. I have a saying, “Procrastination is the poison to progress. “
by Apostle Gabriel Cross
The Lord spoke this to me, “When you procrastinate what I am telling you to do, you not only delay your progress, but others too. For there are many waiting to receive their salvation, deliverance, healing, and breakthrough from Me, through you. Stop delaying the progress of My People.”

The Bible poses the question to every believer: “What fellowship does the light have with darkness?”
This question to me is one that is challenging, easy to comprehend but hard to answer. You maybe asking the question: Why is this question hard to answer?
My response is this question is hard to answer because there is a certain level of darkness that if we are truthful with ourselves…we like. There is a place in us, a behavior we participate in that if the truth could be told, we haven’t yet fully surrendered it to God.
This area that I am talking about is an area of darkness that we’ve allowed willingly at times to break our fellowship with the light.
I am not judging and please don’t judge me! However, have you ever felt like the Apostle Paul when he declares,
“The good I would do, I don’t do and that which I don’t want to do I find myself doing?”
This inner darkness which is not sinister, or destructive to others can and is destructive to our fellowship with the God.
So, what I realized is this when Christ died on the cross and rose with all power in his hand he gave us the power (Holy Spirit) to bridge that gap of separation and create fellowship.
So, what I have tried to do is understand that there is the power of darkness (sin) working within me. However, according to the Apostle Paul he says with the mind I have the ability and the power to override the darkness because of what Jesus Christ did on the Cross.
Let’s talk a look at this scripture:
If you want to read it in its entirety then it is Rms 7:24. However, I wanted to focus on the word mind.
In my opinion, the word mind is so important here in this text. The word mind reminds us that we have a responsibility and the power to override the darkness within by placing our minds under the control of God’s word.
When we allow our minds to be under control of God’s word we can shed light on the darkness that resides within. We can make this part of us that is not surrendered to God’s authority obey Him
But this approach to eradicating the darkness within will take a clear, concise decision by us. This decision that we must make is one that loves God more then sin, accepts that God knows best and has a try desire to be the best for God.
Make today the day that you tell the darkness within,
“No more from hear on out I am turning the lights on.”

In this passage of scripture the prophet Elijah was searching for peace from within. Elijah in chapter 18th had just demonstrated the power of God by calling fire down from heaven, killing the 450 false prophets Baal.
However, what he failed to realize is the Devil is not of afraid of the power of God but he is terrified of the presence of God.
There is a difference between the power and the presence. All too often we dwell looking for the power of God to fix us and our situations and when it is not given or doesn’t show up then we are lost.
Jezebel didn’t turn tail and run but she dug in even more threatening to kill Elijah because of what he had done. The Devil is not afraid of the power of God he is terrified of the presence of God.
When we plead the blood of Jesus it doesn’t bring the power but it evokes his presence and his power to do battle on our behalf. Elijah realizes that he in his power has failed so he flees. He asked God to kill him because he realized in his power he was nothing. But this is where God’s wants us. He wants us to understand that we can’t fix it or fix us.
So God begins to feed Elijah…And he wants to feed us his word. He knows the more we feed on Him the stronger his presence becomes in us. Elijah gains peace when he learns to listen for God’s voice then to seek his power.
It is in God’s small still voice that victory and peace is waiting for you.
Jesus said my sheep know my voice!
If you need peace today listen for your answer of hope and strength by following the voice of God and stop looking for the power.
If you are searching for something good to listen too?

How It All Began
It is 7:15 a.m and I am on my way to work. I make a coffee stop at a popular fast food chain. The weather is fairly mild. However, there is no sunshine just clouds.
I don’t know if it is the weather but today I wished I could stay home in the bed. It was tough getting up this morning. I got up on time but found myself getting dressed only to lie down for an additional 10 to 15 mins because I was so tired this morning.
I don’t know how you feel but this is my story. I didn’t wake up beaming with joy, I didn’t wake up chipper but my mood was somber, reflective and ungrateful.
You know the irony of it all was I felt totally different yesterday. I was motivated, eager and overjoyed by life but some how today I felt the opposite way. Today I felt repugnant, recalcitrant and self reflective.
Wow what a difference a few hours can make in ourlives.
But before I go down the road of selfpitty and woe is me Blvd…I caught myself. I restrained my mind from controlling my feelings and had to put some things into perspective.
If you didn’t know it proper perspective is so important for one trying to see life in focus. Whenever, I find my perspective skewed I but always seem to make improper judgments about things around. So I work hard to put life and situations in proper perspective.
The day Before I was on fire!
Yes, the day before I was on fire for God. I had just released to my listeners (who I am so appreciative of) a podcast episod entitled, “Building The Mind Of Victory.”
And the reason why I share this is I must be accountable to live the advice I give to others. This is a trait I see in myself and some people that I come in contact with. We can give everyone around us life saving advice but when it comes to us we won’t follow our own advice.
This can be a troubling character trait, not practicing what we preach. It is like the person that floods your internet feed with their content but never take time to read someone else’s post. This type of behavior smells and it stinks.
So, I made up in my mind today while sitting at my desk that I must have the mind of victory. I purposed in my heart that depression, selfpitty and doubt would not control me. I purposed in my heart that I would practice what I preached.
Just because doubt and despair speaks doesn’t mean we have to listen or follow.
So I am writing this to hopefully encourage someone today that is fighting the voices around them to stand. You control your mind, feelings and behavior.
Make a choice today to have a victorious mindset.
