When you happen on someone who's in trouble or
needs help among your people with whom you live
in this land that God, your God, is giving you, don't
look the other way pretending you don't see him.
Don't keep a tight grip on your purse. No. Look at
him, open your purse, lend whatever and as much a
s he needs. Don't count the cost. Don't listen to that
selfish voice saying, "It's almost the seventh year, the
year of All-Debts-Are-Canceled," and turn aside
and leave your needy neighbor in the lurch, refusing to
help him. He'll call God's attention to you and your blatant sin
Deuteronomy 15: 7 - 9

Something In You + God's Ablity = God's Best

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly
abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that works in us

The first week of the year has gone by and I am sure, like myself, most will have written out their plans, declarations and proclaiming that 2010 will be their greatest year yet; declaring Jeremiah 29:11, God's hope and future plans for us all the way.
However, it is one thing for us to declare to have a good year, and another to see it manifested. The verse above, when looked at properly is divided into two parts;

The first part is thus: "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.... This shows God's infinite and amazing power and ability.

The second part is thus: "according to the power that works in us" Ah ah! This is the part we tend to overlook or not read as part of that scripture. This part tells us that there is something, an action that we must do. This tells us that we are 'conduits' (A means by which something is transmitted) to the manifestation of God's "exceedingly abundantly and above all we ask for or think" in our lives.

The question to ponder on is thus: "are you an open conduit for God's "exceedingly abundantly and above all that you ask for or think"?

In Ephesians 1:19-20, the power that works within us is confirmed as the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. It reads "I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power, that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. "

The power that works within us include:
The word 'works' in the opening scripture means: to act or operate effectively.

This means we must give this power within us a daily and continuous work out. It is no use if the power is just there doing nothing. We must EXERCISE this power, like one working out in the gym. We must confess, declare, and live out it's realities, every single day.

The result of this, when given to God's infinite ability, will provide awesome means to bring forth His best into our lives.

Power Within You + God's ability = God's Best

At this point, I am reminded of a story I heard once, of that of a man who kept praying and asking God to intervene in his life situations. He kept saying "God do something about this or that problem", however, God responded by saying "son, if you want me intervene, give me something to work with".

Are you working and living the intricacies of that something, that power with you, on a daily and continuous basis, to bring forth God's best for you this year?

God wants you to experience the best He has to offer you this year, because He has a good future planned for you as declared in Jeremiah 29:11, which reads "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." However, we do have our part to play in this promise. We must REALISE the power within us and THEN workout this power to make it a good portal for God's best to be manifested in our lives.

So, as you start a new week, I encourage you to acknowledge and belief, without any doubt the power of God within you. I encourage you to put this power to work through Belief, willingness, obedience, prayer, patience, perseverance and praise, and watch God give you the best year you have ever had yet!

Have a great time living out the intricacies of the power of God that works within you, bringing into your reality the manifestation of God's best; whilst making Him famous along your way.

Much love, Remi
Be uplifted and Inspired

Then God Said...!

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The earth was formless and empty, and darkness
covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was
hovering over the surface of the waters.
Then God said...
Genesis 1:1-3

The first week of every year is usually a time the diligent will sit down and put together a plan for their lives. I say diligent because not everyone does so. However, failing to write down our plans means we have given the year permission to unfold whichever way it wants to. It means we have given the year permission to attend to the world's next screaming sensation.
This could be likened to someone who is trying to loose weight who sways in tune to the newest diet sensation, rather than treating the root cause of the problem of weight gain. The result will to be on a constant diet roller coaster, never fully achieving the desired results.

Beside putting together a Life, yearly, monthly, weekly and daily plan, a very important thing that we must do is SPEAK into our lives; in to our present and future.


From the opening verse, Genesis 1:1-3, it is explained that the earth was without form or void, this means that it was in a mess. The message Bible helps to make this even clearer, it reads "First this: God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don't see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss."

From this, lets ask ourselves the question; what is the state of our lives at the beginning of this year? Is it a soup of confusion, of mis-aligned priorities, of debt, of sin, and or lack of focus?

Going back to the opening verses, to rectify all the mess the earth was in, God started to do something, apart from the plan that He had for earth, for we know our God is a God of order 1 Corinthians 14:33a..., HE SPOKE. From verse 3, the Bible says in Genesis 1:3, "God spoke.... " . God began to speak order into the earth. Whatever God said it came to be. He spoke light, day, night, land, firmament and all. Read Genesis 1 for completion.

The question today is thus; what do you want to change, fix, be rectified or aligned to God's will in you life? Along with the plans God has given you, you MUST SPEAK. Start to say something into forming and shaping of your life.

The Bible says in Genesis 1:27 that God created us in His own Image, it reads "So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them."

Image means to: to be a reflection, a mirrored likeness of, or a semblance of something or someone.

As we are created in God's image, it means we have the same abilities that He has. So as God spoke order into the earth, we also can speak order into our lives. We can speak whatever we want to speak into our lives.

As you start this new year and indeed a new decade, I encourage you that as you work and walk God's plan for your life this year, to also SPEAK the plan. Our faith is a spoken faith, which means what we declare shall be, just as confirmed in Job 22:28, which reads "You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways"

This year, the choice is ours to make. Do we speak life and give God something to work with or speak death and give the devil something run wild with.

I wish you a good start to the year, rising, running and reigning in and through God as you should; making Him famous along the way.

Much Love, Remi
