Watch Clip HERE // Jesus Paid It All

What is true empowerment? True empowerment comes from the price Jesus paid nailed to the tree.

Through the complete victory in the death,  burial and ressurection, Jesus became the supreme sacrifice conquering the stronghold of sin.

When moments of discouragement hits, God wants to encourage me and you through the victory of the cross empowering us. It’s when we are a child of weakness, we are called to watch and pray, find in Him thine all in all…. empowerment.

Today see the empowerment of the cross, see the empowerment of the death, see the empowerment of the burial and see the complete victory of empowerment in the resurrection. Live and lead in and through this as your core being and you will operate in complete empowerment of God.

For when we are weak, he is strong and nothing can stand against us… “EMPOWERED” 



I hear the savior say, thy strength indeed is smallChild of weakness, watch and pray, find in me thine all in all

‘Cause Jesus paid it all

All to him I owe

 Sin had left a crimson stain, he washed it white as snow
Lord, now indeed I find thy power and thine alone

Can change the leper’s spots and melt the heart of stone
‘Cause Jesus paid it all

All to him I owe

My sin had left this crimson stain, he washed it white as snow
It’s washed away, all my sin

And all my shame
And when before the throne I stand in him complete

“Jesus died my soul to save” my lips shall still repeat

Get Up – Be Empowered 


But get up and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, – Acts 26:16


The Book of Acts was written to provide a history and powerful account of the early church that shook the world and multiplied. The emphasis of the book is the importance of the day of Pentecost and being empowered to be effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. Acts records the apostles being Christ’s witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the rest of the surrounding world. 

The story of the church in these writings sheds profound light and meaning on the gift of the Holy Spirit as comfort, empowerer, supreme guide who teaches and serves within as enabler in our spiritual journey of obedience. 

When diving into the book of Acts, the spiritual sensors are enlightened and encouraged by the empowerment of many miracles that were being performed by ordinary men who we Christ followers,  the disciples Peter, John, and Paul.

 “The book of Acts emphasizes the importance of obedience to God’s Word and the transformation that occurs as a result of knowing Christ” 


Many times in this book we see the Holy Spirit empower these men to do the extraordinary in and through Christ.  We see the spirit speaking and saying many times to the faithful obedient “Get Up” , “Stand Up” and “Go” be EMPOWERED.

We too engage in this calling. As we are the living church of the Acts. The spirit still calls us to “Get Up- Be Empowered”.

What is the spirit speaking to you today? Is he calling you to get up, stand on your feet, for the purpose he has appeared to your spirit and soul is to appoint YOU to a mission of ministry. To witness not only to the things you have seen, but also to the things in which He will appear to you in his leading. 

Today be open to his whispers of leadings in your spirit and soul. Be sensitive to the spirits leading to “Get up – Be Empowered” and see what the Great I Am can do in and through your today.  Get connected in solitude, silence and prayer with the almighty Father.

When the fight calls // WATCH CLIP HERE
This week as you feel the mid week pressure and battles, remember… when the fight calls we have a saviour who has overcome this world with Love. 
Jesus made our fight his own on the cross, paying the price of all our sin and shame. When fear hits, we can throw aside and cling to the cross, singing in the fight. 

Today take heart, and know that through his Holy Spirit’s empowering in our lives we can overcome any battle that comes our way. Today reflect on His love through the cross, and how the Holy Spirit empowers us to take heart in the fight. 

Psalm 31: 24  Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

Lyrics: 

“You’ve overcome this world with love

And made my fight Your own

I lift my eyes and throw fear aside

And sing out into the night
Cause even when the world caves

Even when the fight calls

Even when the war’s waged

I’ll take heart

I know You are greater

Forever You are Savior

I will sing Your praise

With all that I have

With all that I am Lord”

Empowered Life // Ephesians 3:14-21

Key Verse: 3:16 – Empowered through the spirit “Inner Being”

What is it to be truly empowered in your inner most being? Paul is writing to the church of Ephesus to empower them to see the key source of the empowerment that is within them.

We see that its within our inner most being that our soul was spirit breathed in the creation of man. When we see and connect to,  “we are a living being, spirit breathed”  how can this unlock the empowered life?

 In Genisis 2:7 God breaths life in to man very soul. (Genesis 2:7) Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. This very breath of God is the connection of our soul and spirit in the image of God being the source of life. Being made in Gods image, we reflect the spirit, soul and form of God. (Genesis 1:27)27So God created human beings[a] in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

God being a relational God, formed us out of his relationship as the trinity Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through his exspression of  LOVE.  ( 1 John 4:8) Described as Love, God can be love only because he exist as community as three, unconditional Love is his character, Father to the Son, as the son to the father. God exists in a relationship of Love, and we are designed for this… from the father to us, and us to the father

So as soul and spirit beings in the image of God, he desires the communication and connection with us the created. As seen in the garden of Eden, God connected in the cool of the evening in an open and close connection to the “soul being” of the created man and women. The soul connection was pure and divine and the Love of the father was seen through the intimate relationship.

As we live in the fallen world in sin and separation, Gods redemptive plan to bring back that close communication and connection in the soul being, through the Lord Jesus Christ. In his death, burial and resurrection, Gods plan of redemption is shown through the ultimate Love gift. When we acknowledge our sin, and accept the gift of salvation we become born again and the connection with God is made complete again.

The day of salvation, comes the empowerment of the Holy spirit to seal us and to empower us. True empowerment starts and stops with the Holy Spirit within us. The role of the holy spirit was actively present in the creation and the involvement of creation of man and now is the true source of life, which strives with man, and it teaches and guides  us daily. 

The Holy Spirit is the manifestation of Gods presence within us and this is what fills and empowers us in our inner most being. How does the Holy Spirit empower us? When we are born again believers, we receive the gift of the spirit on the day of conversion. This is the empowerment of Gods love within us. The Holy Sprit’s role is in the day of salvation as It brings us to belief, brings us to the sanctification and justification through salvation. 

The Spirits role is to help communicate to the father, help connect to the fathers heart and  help empower us to the do the God ordained task that relates to the call he has on our lives. God wants to empower your life through the spirit to have that close connection and communication.

As you reflect on this, think of how the holy spirit called you to the day of salvation. Think of the day you were saved, and the day your received the Holy Spirit as the sealing gift to help empower you in life. Reflect on your soul being, are you in close connection the your heavenly father through the empowering work of the Holy Spirit in your life.

God is waiting to have the close connection with you through the empowering communication of the Holy Spirit in your life. Start today by connecting to the power source that is within you of the gift of the spirit.

Have you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your saviour? If not, today is the day of salvation, the gift of the Holy Spirit and the day you can have the close connection and communication with God again through the Lord Jesus Christ.  find out more information here to start your journey… http://www.allaboutgod.com/how-to-be-saved.htm
