Praise the Lord everybody, for He is worthy to be praised! I trust everyone is enjoying Gods blessing. It is a wonderful thing to see God moving in your life all around you. Let me say this, the devil is not happy about what God is about to do for my wife and I's ministry and personal life. We just have to just continue to press on a little while longer, Praise God!!

Last week I shared something on the prayer line that I'm going to now share with you. The scripture is John 21:17-22    
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

 There is an illness in the body of Christ that has been going on since it's inception. I believe Peter was the first documented case Peter who had denied knowing Jesus three times on the night he was betrayed, was being restored by Jesus and given a charge by Jesus to “feed my sheep.” Instead of Peter being overwhelmed by the grace and mercy of Jesus and thereby out of love and gratitude placing his complete attention on Him, He at that wonderful moment of restoration and love takes his focus off Jesus and starts worrying about what God had in store for another brother. Jesus of course rebuked Peter and in essence told him stop worrying about the next man and focus on following Him.

The same thing is true today in the body of Christ.  Many have forgotten where God has brought them from. They have forgotten His grace and his mercy concerning them and their promise to focus on and follow Jesus. They have become distracted by petty jealousies and gossip. They are focused on man and not God. They begin to question certain decisions and appointments the pastor makes. They want to know why they were not considered or at least consulted concerning those issues.

They begin to question God, wondering why this one or that one is being blessed and they are still waiting. Self importance and pride set in and before long bitterness and anger. They then fade away into a back slided state, all because they have a case of Church Attention Deficit Disorder. A.D.D. started in the world and that’s understandable,
but when it infects the body of Christ, that is unacceptable. The bible says when we put our hands to the Gospel plow don’t look back and we are not to look to the left or the right. If God has called you to feed His sheep, feed His sheep, If God has called you to sing his praises, sing his praises, if God has called you to be an usher, then usher. What ever you have been called to do, do that and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Philippians 2: 1212 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling

Praise the Lord everybody! for He is worthy to be praised! I'm still feeling "I can't shut it down!!" my last post. I was going to do a part 2 but something happened the other day and the Lord showed me something that I feel compelled to share with you all.

The other day I had to go for re-evaluation by para transit so I can continue my coverage and a strange thing happened while I was there, strange to the "worldly" anyway. God gave me a testimony. But before that He gave me this scripture 1st Corinthians 4:16-20
16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.

18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.

19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

God drove His message home after I left the evaluation. I began to go over the events of the day.
When I arrived at the center I noticed many others who had come before me and were finished and were now awaiting pick ups home, some had been waiting a long time and were complaining.
after I signed in, a few minutes later I was escorted to the back to see the physical therapist for the re-evaluation.
Afterward I was ushered back to the front were I noticed the same people still waiting and complaining. So I settled myself down for what I was told would be a long wait because the computers were "down" at Access-A-ride causing late pickups. After about fifteen minutes a van pulled up and everyone crowded around to ask if it was for them, I didn't even get up because I felt it couldn't be for me,But God had something else in mind. I heard disappointed voices as one by one they were all turned away and then in walked the driver, he looked around and then asked "are you Darrell"? And just like that I was on my way home. As I walked out to the van somebody asked me "who do you know?" and I smiled and said "I know God, I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!"

As I was whisked away it all came together, This is the power Paul was talking about, power that can be seen working in your life. People ought to be able to know who you are in Christ without you having to open your mouth. Talk is cheap in the kingdom of Heaven. The Corinthian church was doing a lot of puffed up talking, pumping themselves up. Paul said he would not be interested in their words but what power they had. He wanted to see if the power of God was evident in their lives.

Today the body of Christ is full of itself, for the most part ordaining themselves Apostles, prelates, Paraclete's, prophets, Reverend and Pastors. Everyone is caught up in titles and positions but without the evidence of the power of God in your life it means nothing. I'd rather remain plain old Brother Darrell and have the power of God all over me to the point where when I show up things happen, people are healed, delivered and get saved by the power of God. But there is a price that has to be payed for that type of anointing.

You have to live holy, stay prayed up, there will be trials and tribulations. Like Paul you have to suffer some things so that Gods grace can be made perfect in you. I don't want to just talk a good game. God says in his word, Isaiah 29: 13  13 Wherefore the Lord said, For as much as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Brothers and sisters it is time to stop talking about it and start being about it! Don't talk about being anointed, get anointed!

Praise the Lord everybody! for He alone is worthy to be praised! I must confess that recently I had become very frustrated with all the trials my wife and I have been going through the past few years.
For a few seconds I began to wander what it would feel like to just shut it down, stop writing this blog, stop being on the prayer line, stop hearing from "friends" and "haters" and back biting church folk as I stop  pressing my way through every hindrance thrown my way that have been preventing me from going to church on a regular basis and being effective for God.

Then like Peter I said to whom shall I go? John 6: 67-69
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God

This is why I can't shut it down, where am I going? back to drugs? back to Satan and his lies?
I am who God says I am. I am a man of God, a praying man, a watchman. God forbid I don't write, God forbid I don't pray and God forbid I don't watch am I perfect? No. But I'm pressing my way. Jeremiah said it was "like fire shut up in his bones. Jeremiah 20:9 9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay

I have a burning desire to love Him to serve Him, to do His will, God has placed that desire in a former crack addict and I have to hold on no matter what comes my way. I can't shut it down! God has called me to be a Watchman, He said He would allow me to see things through His eyes and then give me what to write. Psalm 32:8+9
8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

For this blessing I must suffer many things but I'm going to keep pressing, keep seeking, keep writing and keep praying and no Devil, so called friend or Church folk are going to discourage or turn me around
