[06/23/12]   Greetings and Salutations!

Knowing when it's time to let go is sometimes a very difficult task. All too often, we cling to people, places and things that should have been gone a long time ago. Many of us have become life-long hoarders and lack the freedom of letting go.

How long have you had that pair of pants, shoes or dress that is too small, too tight or out dated? How long have you driven on tires that are bald and bare no tread? How long have you been working on a dead-end job when a career actually awaits you? How long have you been in a relationship that was really over from the start, but you have been the person "self-tasked," with supporting the load? It's time to let go!

One well known author once said, "It's an important difference between giving up and letting go." (Jessica Hatchigan) Understand that just because you let go of something or someone, doesn't mean that you have given up or gone backwards. Sometimes it means that "you have looked up and moved forward." (KLM 2012)

God wants us to let go as well. The first thing he wants us to let go of is our burdens. "Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22). God wants us to let go of anger and resentment as well. "Let go of anger and bitterness..." (Ephesians 4:31-32). A wise person once stated, "Holding onto resentment is like letting someone you despise live rent-free inside your head." (Ann Landers)

But, even more importantly, God wants us to let go of anything that keeps us from loving Him with all of our hearts, minds, body and soul. (Deuteronomy 6:5)

So, allow yourself to really Let Go and Let God! Now, think on these things.....

Have a Victorious Day in the Lord!

[06/20/12]   Greetings to my Sistas!

All too often, life has a way of passing you by if you continue to remain in the "Neutral Zone of life." Ask yourself a serious question. "How much time have you wasted just sitting around, standing around, talking about it and worrying about it?"

If any of these questions apply to you, then ladies, you need to "Put it in gear!" Let me encourage you to relinquish whatever it is that is hindering your progress. (Hebrews 12:1)

Let me motivate you to move from good to great and from better to best! But, how can you move forward when life seems to keep pushing you backwards? I'm glad you asked?

The answer is simple. Stop allowing the pressure of life to manage you and start using God's power to manage your life! (KLM 2012) Listen, God desires for you to go much further than your current position.

If you're under the impression that where you are is the last stop, then you're sadly mistaken. Whether its your job, your church, your family, your finances or even within your community, God wants you to go higher. But, you won't go any higher or further unless you put your spiritual, physical and mental mindset in gear!

Women of God, no longer do you have to live under the umbrella of mediocrity. You don't have to slumber in stagnation or remain depressed about your current situation. Make up your mind to put it in gear!

Can I tell you that your break-through is waiting for you to put it in gear. Your blessing is waiting you to put it in gear. If you're single, God's man is waiting for you to put it in gear so he can find you! If you're married, your marriage deserves for you to put it in gear. If you're sitting at the stop light and stop sign of your life, you no longer have to wait, just put it in gear and move forward.

Your full potential, your greatest desires, your highest expectations and even your God-given purpose is contingent on you putting it in gear. After all, faith without works is dead! (James 2:26) So, make up your mind for the rest of the year to get out of neutral and put it in gear! Now, think on these things....!

Make it a Glorious Day!

[06/18/12]   Greetings to the People of God!

Today, whatever you do, matter what matter what the day brings...remember to keep it moving! What does this really mean? For the Christian, it should simply mean that we remain focused on God, walk with God and allow the Spirit of God to guide every step that we take. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

All too often, we move without God, don't move with God or we don't move when God says to "move." Understand that God is a Spirit. "They that worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth." (John 4:24) When God says to move, we must move. To engage in the stagnation of thinking too much or waiting until we feel like moving is to engage in an act of disobedience. We must learn to "keep it moving." It's been said that "Even when you're on the right track, you will get run over if just sit there." (Will Rogers)

In other words, we've got to learn to keep it moving regardless of the worries and woes in our lives. Be encouraged and cease to allow complacency to rule your thoughts and your actions. Keep it moving!

When you stand for what's right in the midst of others who may be wrong, don't worry, just "keep it moving."

When the stress of job related issues overwhelm you, trust in God and "keep it moving."

When you're unappreciated by family, friends and even church members, depend on the strength from God and "keep it moving."

When financial obligations burden you, continue to have faith in God and "keep it moving."

Finally, when life deals you cards of dispair, depression and difficulty, remember that God wants you to "keep it moving." Now, think on these things....

Have a Victorious Day in the Lord!

[06/15/12]   Greetings to the Saints of God!

The Apostle Paul was spiritually inspired to right these powerful and prolific words to the church of Philippi: "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus!"(KJV)

In essence, each of us should all adopt a mindset that is rooted in the freedom of knowing that Jesus Christ is our Lord. But, what does having a mind in Christ Jesus really mean?

It means first of all, not allowing the issues of this world to weigh you down so heavily that you lose sight of your God-given purpose. (Hebrews 12:1)

It means feeling confident that your Father in heaven will never leave you or forsake you in times of trouble, trial or tragedy. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

It means that despite your current situation or condition, nothing can separate you from the loving care of God. (Romans 8:35)

But, it means that one day all of the issues that we face in life will pass away. Then, we will be free to reign with Christ for eternity! (1 Corinthians 15:51-54)

So, today I speak to the believers in encouraged; remain focused; be steadfast; remain confident and whatever you do, "Let your mind be free!"

Have a Wonderful Freedom Friday!

[06/13/12]   Greetings My Sisters,

Let's talk apparel and appearance. This is a "taboo" topic and sometimes banned from discussion among women in certain arenas. However, I believe it's definitely warranted in the 21st Century for all women who wear the badge of Christianity.

In 1Timothy 2:9, the Apostle Paul is very direct, distinct and decisive regarding his instructions by God to the church. He states, "I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing at all times and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing flamboyant jewelry or attire." (NLT)

Of course, this is a controversial topic because I have encountered many women who have no desire to adhere to the teaching and application of this text. This is demonstrated in the outward showing of women that show too much cleavage, too much "thigh action," too much make-up, too much perfume, "skin-tight" clothing and ultimately nothing is left to the imagination of onlookers.

In fact, many women shun this portion of the text and attempt to tailor it by saying, "it's an out-dated," scripture for the times. If this is your opinion, then so is respecting women, honoring widows and faithfulness to women in marriage as stated in scripture. In other words,..."Ladies, you can't have it both ways." Either this is an accepted practice by you or it's not. Either you're a believer in God's Word or not! In either case, the choice has major consequences.

If you are a single woman, it's quite possible that your appearance can either direct God's man towards you or deflect God's man away from you.

If you are married, it's imperative that you reflect a Godly image in your attire and appearance at all times. No man,..I repeat.."No Man," should ever believe that you are available based on your appearance, actions, conversation or non-verbal cues!

The bible speaks of "shunning the appearance of evil.." (1 Thessalonians 5:22) In essence, anything that you do, say, engage in, wear or even connect with should not resemble something that can be mistaken for "sinful interaction." Ladies, remember that God is always watching you. You don't have to wear extremely revealing clothing to attract God's man to you. Nor do you have to flag him down when you want to be seen.

More often than not, if you're waiting on God's man to find you, he will not be drawn to explicit attire, flashy hairstyles, colorful make-up, or skimpy clothing. He will be drawn to a women that appears modest in her apparel and presentation. So, if you're already married to God's man...then ponder whether you're still aligned with what drew him? If you're not married, then take some cues from 1Timothy 2:9. After all, you're still single and you've tried everything else. What do you have to lose....? Now, think on these things....

Make it a great day!

[06/11/12]   Greetings and Salutations!

Here's a thought..."If today was the last day of your life, what would you do...where would you go...who would you talk to...what would you want people to remember the most...and how would you want it to end?"

Ask yourself these thought provoking questions because it may be your last time...

Now, think on these things...

Rev. KL McKnight, MAPD

[06/09/12]   Greetings to God's People:

Twentieth Century writer and philosopher, Elbert Hubbard said, "The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live." One of the joy's of life is the freedom that God has given each of us to live. Jesus addresses this very same issue with his disciples in John 10:10. He states, "The thief comes to steal, kill and to destroy. But, I AM come to give you life and to give it more abundantly." There are (3) statements that speaks to the reader.

The first statement describes how the enemy wants to steal your joy, kill your confidence and destroy your testimony. We as Christians can't afford to allow our witness to be tainted by the enemy. Therefore, we must exercise our freedom to pray frequently, engage in devotion with God constantly and love people tirelessly.

The second statement speaks to the deity or the "Divine Nature of God." Jesus says, "I AM Come." The words "I AM," represent the covenant or promise of God to cover, protect and give his children confidence that he will keep his promises and won't break them. We should have joy and freedom that we can live in "Confident Faith" that the one who started with us will always be here for us!

The final statement speaks to the desire that God has for all of his children to experience the "Blissful Blessings," of having a life not filled with misery, but one filled with God's mercy. This does not mean that we won't experience the pains, pressures and problems of this life. But, it means that we should live with the spiritual freedom and understanding that we can "Be of good cheer because Jesus has overcome the world." (John 16:33)

So, to my fellow friends in the faith...God wants you all to know that as a child of God, place your burdens on HIM; cast your cares towards HIM and walk with confidence as a child of the King. Why?...because you are free to live!

Now, think on these things...

[06/06/12]   Greetings to my Sistas!

In 2 Thessalonians 3:13 it declares, "As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good!" Today's inspiration is for those of you who have ever suffered from a condition called, "Being sick and tired of being sick and tired!"

There will be times in life when it seems as though you as a woman are unappreciated, taken for granted, filled with anxiety, misunderstood, experience mistrust and feel like your kindness has been mistaken for your weakness. If this describes you or has ever been an issue of yours, don't feel ashamed or embarrassed. The same thing happened to some women in the bible.

A woman by the name of Hagar, who was Sarah's handmaiden was unappreciated, taken for granted and filled with much anxiety simply because she had Abraham's son, Ishmael.

She was submissive and compliant. But, when Sarah and others began to see how Hagar began to align with Abraham, she was released and banished into the wilderness of Beersheba.This was all done so that Hagar would not gain any inheritance from Abraham's wealth. Because under Mesopotamian law, once banished and released, you could no longer lay claim to any inheritance that Abraham or Sarah owned.

Let me lift it up for you!...Hagar had become like many women who are jilted and tossed aside today. All she did was try to be good. All she did was try to be obedient. Hagar didn't ask for issues, but issues came anyway. Unfortunately, she was a victim of life's circumstances, bad decisions and a classic case of "baby momma drama!" She was broke financially, broken emotionally, beaten mentally and bewildered spiritually.

But, can I tell you that God still protected her, kept her and blessed her? When Hagar was at her weakest point and just when she thought that she couldn't go any further, God showed up! He allowed Hagar and her young son, Ishmael to have provision in the desert where there is nothing.

Sistas, only God can make something out of nothing! You may be in a desert of nothingness right now! You may not receive child-support checks, government assistance, family support and your friends may diminish. Your marriage may be in trouble and your children may be suffering. You may be trapped in a "dead end job," or be frustrated by your current employment. You may just be tired...But, God will show up!

Please take this as a spiritual lesson to learn and to be lived. When you are at your worst point, weakest moment and trouble has visited your address, just know that when you're weak and seemingly in want, God will show up!

Now, think on these things...

Make it a Great Day!

[06/04/12]   Greetings and Salutations!

Albert Einstein once said, "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." This is such a thought-provoking statement. But, the operative question is, "How much does your relationship with Christ count?"

Does it really matter to you that he loves you so much that he gave his life as a ransom for you? How often do you really reflect on the goodness of God? Oftentimes, we spend too much idle time worrying, discontent, depressed and angry regarding our situations and our circumstances. When in actuality, we should "count it all joy," when things happen to us or when we endure tribulation. Why? because tribulation works patience and patience has a way of working on things that God wants worked out of us! (James 1:2)

Listen, Jesus came into this world as a servant. He lived his life sacrificing, he died suffering, but as a result, we can receive salvation! Knowing this, we should be exceedingly thankful. He didn't have to do it. He didn't have to die for our sins. He didn't have to lower himself so that one day we would be elevated to him. But, he did! Christ values our souls so highly that it didn't matter what it cost, he was willing to pay the ultimate price.

So, as we look in the mirrors of our life and we reflect on the things that we assign value to such as: cars, houses, land, jewelry, jobs, money and other material things; think to yourself, "How much is any of this even worth?" If your life's value, worth and purpose is accounted for based on earthly, worldly or material things, then your life is only as good as the numerical value assigned to it. But, if your eyes are focused on things with eternal value, heavenly hope and Christ-centered thinking, then what counts the most to you is "Priceless." Now, think on these things....

Have a Victorious Day in the Lord!
