Posts Tagged ‘Jesus Community’

Who else has noticed that over 60% of the posts on here have become centered around church, Christ, and living right? I don’t know why jor, maybe it’s because with each passing day I realize that even if I wrote from today till tomorrow nonstop, I wouldn’t cover half of the awesomeness that God is!

Ok, Bibles out, welcome to church! Today (actually this was from a service I attended three Sunday’s ago) I was at Winners Chapel Dartford. Now I haven’t been there on a Sunday for a veeeeery long time, and only started attending midweek services because I need the comfort and encouragement that can only be gotten from being amongst God’s people.

Anyway, so this service was really difficult for me to sit through, not only because it had been exactly one week since my aunty passed but because the last time I was here on a Sunday my precious aunty Pat literally dragged me here. I remember vividly how she begged, cajoled, and then blackmailed me till I agreed to go with her. Your memories will never die aunty, never!

Back to the sermon, forgive my digression.

The title was ‘unveiling kingdom mysteries for supernatural breakthroughs’, and the anchor scripture was Revelations 4:2, and 5: 10. We are redeemed to reign, not to be ruined. Romans 8:9

1 John 5: 4 –

John 3: 31

Obadiah 1:21

Isaiah 60: 22, Job 29: 4 – 10.

What do you do to possess a breakthrough mentality?

Proverbs 23:7 – my mentality determines my reality; therefore the more I think it, the better I will be at ‘being’ it.

1. A breakthrough mentality is a faith-loaded mentality.

Jeremiah 32:27, Mark 9: 23. To this mentality, impossibility doesn’t exist.

Hebrews 4:2 –  For this good news—that God has prepared this rest—has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn’t share the faith of those who listened to God.

Job 8:7 – And though you started with little, you will end with much. (Amen)!!!!

Hebrews 10:35 – So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!

2. A breakthrough mentality is a triumph-loaded mentality. 2 Timothy 2:3

1 Corinthians 10:13

Psalm 121: 4, 1 Timothy 6:12. Don’t speak like the world, so you don’t see what the world sees.

How to build/develop a breakthrough mentality 

1. I must build my thinking on the word of God. Joshua 1: 8, Psalm 1:2-3

2. Connect to other breakthrough destinies. Hebrews 6:12

3. Fellowship with the Holy Spirit, especially on the altar of prayer.. 1 Corinthians 2: 9

May God bless the reading of His word in our hearts in Jesus name!

Have a super productive week!!

The entire month of July has been dedicated to ‘I have decided’ testimonies every Sunday; people coming out to testify of that moment when they gave their life to God; the tribulations they faced, the strength of their conviction in their decision for God, and how their lives have been different since they decided for Him. Then we all sing one of  my favorite songs:

Christ is enough for me (2x)

Everything I need is in you

Everything I need….

I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back (2x)

The cross before me, the world behind me, no turning back, no turning back (2x)

Amazing testimonies of how God just picks someone up and does a complete 360 degrees on their life. Amazing, simply amazing.

This young lad on Sunday told of how his mom had him when she was 17, never knew/met his dad, and between the ages of two and eight, he had been through FOUR foster homes. Four! He talked about one foster mom who said at some point that she didn’t want him anymore, how he was returned to foster care, and the rejection he felt. The deep rejection he felt that no one loved or wanted him.

At some point he kicked a school Principal in the face and was expelled and that was the beginning of rough times at school, getting into trouble, and all of that.

He got placed with another family in his teens, and she would take him to church on Sunday but according to him, “I hated it”.

One time when he was 14 or so, he was with a foster mom, and they were out shopping. They were in a store, and he saw a man pick up his son and place him on his shoulder. He said something broke inside him at that moment and all he could do was go home, lock himself in his room and just cry. He said he cried and then he prayed and said, “God if you are real, please be my dad. I want to have a dad so much”.

That day was the beginning of a father/son relationship with him and the Lord, and he has grown in leaps and bounds since then. Today he’s 23, born again, spirit-filled, and a graduate of Cambridge University!!! Whoop!

That’s against statistics that say that:

50% of homeless people in England today are foster/care kids

50% of prison inmates are foster/care kids

Only 4% of foster/care kids are expected to get into higher education, talk less of getting into university.

Doesn’t that make you want to give God a big wave? A big ‘ I love you Jesus’?


P:S – of course I was bawling my eyes out by the time he was done. God is awesome. Truly, truly awesome.
