Clear the room if you have to!

Acts 9:40 - Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, "Tabitha, get up." She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.

Matthew 9:25 - After the crowd was put outside, however, Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and she stood up!

These 2 scriptures are amazing scriptures to learn from.  If you are like me, you want everyone to enjoy the experience of your miracle.  But the facts still remain that everyone does not want to see your miracle come to reality.  Everyone does not have your best intention at heart.  It is sad to say that some people in your life are there as doubters, which often times plays a major setback in your miracle/healing/deliverance. 

In 2004 God allowed sickness to touch my body.  I had to come to the reality that some folks that were in the room/life wanted the end result to be death.  I too wanted it to be death because of LIFE.  But when I decided to LIVE, I had to make the choice of clearing the room.  Clearing my life of negativity and negative people.  Once the room/life was cleared I was able to see my miracle and it wasn’t that far away.

I understand that we don’t want to put people out, but look at it this way.  Sometimes you have to put them out for a season so you can gain strength and receive your miracle.  At this point they are a hindrance. 

I celebrate you today as you clear the room!

A Great Point when walking with God
Communication is the Key!

Communicating with God is as important to your spiritual well-being as breathing is to your physical life. “The Lord’s Prayer” in Matthew 6. 

One of the biggest problems in our relationship with God is thinking that we can depend on Him on our own terms. This independent dependence often shows up in the way we pray. While most people do pray, relatively few people pray to God on His terms. We should pray the way God wants us to pray.
Jesus gave a blueprint for prayer that remains just as relevant today as it was 2,000 years ago.
When we pray, we often concentrate on the gifts in God’s hand and ignore the hand of God Himself. We pray fervently for the new job or for the return of health. When we gain the prize, we are delighted. And then we have little more to do with God. If we are only after the gifts, God’s hand serves only as a way to pay the rent, heal the sickness, or get through the crisis. After the need has been met, the hand itself means little to us.
While God in His grace does give good gifts to His children, He offers us more than that; He offers us Himself. Those who are satisfied merely with the trinkets in the Father’s hand miss the best reward of prayer—the reward of communicating and communing with the God of the universe.

Get back to praying daily and appreciate the hand and heart of God not just what He can do for us!
Prayer works!
