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

Empowered To Journey 

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8

With a new year comes new hopes and dreams. A fresh slate for God to write on the tablet of your heart the plans and purposes he has for you in your life and leadership for 2017.
Reflecting on the new beginnings the disciples had after the death and resurrection of their Lord, made me think of their new year of what would be the most empowered year of their lives.

As they greived thy loss of their best friend, Messiah and Lord as they gathered together just as the great “I Am” commanded them to. Together in the upper room reflecting on what was Christs earthly ministry,  many mix emotions formed… They had given up everything to follow the Lord, with the Hope of the kingdom being restored on earth. 

Here we see that Gods plan for the kingdoms resore was not one of an earthly plan but a heavenly kingdom that knows no bounds.The plans these men had were not the plans of the Almighty God. 

Jesus promised that he would leave a comforter that would empower them to live  and lead out the great commission that he spoke of in Matthew 28. Here in the upper room we see the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to forfill the promise of God with the power of the Holy Spirit.

This year, what promises has God given you that he will empower you to have power in? This year what plans and purposes had God shown you to live and lead out of?

Know this, that as we look at the book of acts… look at the journey of empowerment, know that the almighty God will empower you to do the kingdom work he has for his establishment of His name.
Prepare your hearts for the journey of empowerment this year. The breathing of the Holy Spirit into your soul and spirit like non other. The anointing to have the power to the promises he has proclaimed over your life 

Lets go on the journey of empowerment 

Courageous to Empowered 


Sitting and reflect on the year of being “Courageous” the time of stepping out of the boat towards the saviours calling to walk on water, I see the many moments when God has commanded us to be like Joshua…” be bold and courageous, have I not commanded you to”. (Joshua 1:9)

The year of walking boldly in the lane God has called me and you to live and lead, The year of running the race in which he has called us to run. 

The many moments of walking the talk, the times of kneeling before the creator praying the Joshua prayer of courage to step out into the unknown of life and leadership.

As I sit and reflect on the year of courage I see how God is beautifully aligning the “NEW” beginnings of the new year to be “Empowered” to do all he has called us to do. When we step out in courage, he empowers us to lead out of our very “BEING” with God. The Holy Spirit empowers us to fulfill the calling that God has placed within our heartbeat of ministry. 
The first step is to be bold and courageous, taking on the calling of the heartbeat he has within us to go and mission to the world. The following of this step is the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in which enable us to do the great works that he has pre planned since before creation. 

This New Year’s Eve, as we reflect on this year, what moments has God called you to be bold and courageous? Has he called you to step out of the boat and walk on water? Has he called you to step into the unknown of leadership to then empower you to do great works for his kingdoms purposes?
Take some time out and reflect and seek Gods will and ways for you as you enter 2017 Empowered for his greater kingdom work. Will 2017 be the year God Empowered your through the Holy Spirit to go out into all the world, make disciples and envest in the church?
