8/14/19 Miracle City Global
Kimble Love. Good evening Miracle City Global. So good to see you all tonight on this thunderstorming, raining, gusty, windy evening. Praise God we’re here and we’re going to honor him tonight. We’re going to have an awesome time in the Lord. We going to enter into worship and see what the Lord is going to do tonight.
Father, I just thank you tonight that you are our Father and that you are here by your Spirit to minister to our needs, and Father we are here to minister unto you. We thank you for your goodness, for your lovingkindness, your long-suffering. Most of all we thank you for sending your Son, Jesus. For the sacrifice he made by giving of himself and the shedding of his blood, that delivered us and saved us and brought us back into the family.
So Father, we honor you tonight with our worship. We give you praise and glory. We ask that you pour out your Spirit in a fresh and new and mighty way. That you send forth the breath of heaven, the breath of life to fill our inmost being, to refresh us, to restore us, to strengthen us, Lord God, so that we can run and not be weary, walk and not faint.
Father, we bind ourselves together tonight and we say you are our glory, our God, our Father, our King, the King of all Kings, and we submit to your lordship and your authority. Have your way, Father, in Jesus name. Amen. Let’s worship.
?Your love won’t let go. Your promises never fail. I know your thoughts for me are good. I know you hold my future and my hope. I am standing on every promise that you made. I will see it come to pass in your name. You’re faithful.
Spirit come. Pour it out. Let your glory fill this house.
Come and blow on through. Spirit move. We’re ready for you. Come and do what only you can do. We want your fire. We hunger for your fire tonight, Lord.
Here we are standing in your presence. Shekinah glory come down. The fullness of your glory, your Spirit is here today. We’re breaking out. Shekinah glory come down. We want more. We want it all God.
Only you. There is no one like our God. There is no other God who can save. There is no one like you God. There is none like you.
Up from the ashes your love brought us. To our God we lift up one voice, one song. Singing hallelujah. Make his praise glorious. For his name is glorious.
Highest praises Lord of all. You are worthy, Lord of all. Let all glory be to the highest King. We honor you. Holy is the Lord God Almighty. Worthy is he. Let all the earth join with all of heaven singing praise. Worthy are you Jesus.
Kimble Love. Praise God. He is worthy of the highest praise. He is the Great God, the one and only true God that speaks and creates, who releases supernatural power and life into his people that seek his face, that desire to be filled. I will declare today as we were singing a moment ago, There is no one like our God.
There is no other God that can save. There is no other God that can deliver. There is no other God that can heal. There is no other God that can meet us right where we are and bring us into fullness of our purpose. He is a good good Father that continually watches over us, even when we don’t deserve it. He doesn’t close up shop and put us out. But he’s always for us.
Father, we honor you tonight. We declare your majesty and your glory, your worth, as best we can. Lord, our minds cannot conceive the vastness of your worth. But we praise you tonight and we declare you are worthy; you are holy; you are awesome; you are mighty; you are magnificent, wonderful, all the adjectives we could think of, you are that and more.
Father, receive the accolades of our praises. Continue to show yourself mighty to us. We honor you tonight. And in these next few minutes, I ask that you speak to us directly through your written Word, for your Word is powerful and effective, sharper than a two-edged sword. It goes forth and accomplishes. Lord, we thank you. We bless you in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Hallelujah.
How good it is to be in the house of the Lord, to be with like-minded and like-spirited people that are seeking the one true God, to see his fullness come on earth as it is in heaven. How many of you are ready for some heaven on earth? How many of you are ready for a lot of heaven on earth? Well, this is a good place and we’re in a good time. We’re in a season and an era where heaven is touching earth.
I believe and I declare tonight that heaven is going to come in ways that we’ve never even imagined. The Bible says where sin abounds grace abounds much more. I’m ready to see the much more abound, because sin is rampant. It’s a jungle out there. Drive from Laurel to Hattiesburg in the morning. It’s worse than the Indianapolis 500 or Nascar. I’ll throw in Demolition Derby. You better move, speed up, or get out of the way, or you’re going to get run over. It’s a great prayer time for me every morning. Traveling mercies have taken on a whole new meaning. Sometimes it looks like life and death.
But praise God, he is good. He never leaves us or forsakes us. He’s going to have his way if we yield to him. I want to talk to you tonight about Trust in God. Trust him and Him alone. In God we Trust is this nation’s motto. And I pray in the name of Jesus that motto remains. There are forces out there that want that motto gone.
There have been people who tried to sue the Federal Reserve because our money says In God We Trust. And that’s offensive to them. They don’t want it on there. Here’s what I have to say to that. If your money offends you, send it to me because I have a place for it, and I can use it to advance the kingdom. And if you don’t believe in God, even more reason. Send your money and we’ll use it to advance God’s kingdom.
We’re in a place and in our walk in our everyday lives in this world today that there’s so much going on out there. There’s so much stuff wherever you go and whatever you’re doing. Looking in the natural you wonder, Lord, am I going to make it? Lord, where are you in this? But there are things going on the natural that I believe are just a setup for a great fall.
I believe we’re in a season, I know we are, where the enemy is overplaying his hand. He is not secretly hidden and trying to deceive in ways that are undercover. I think he is coming out and the people of God are beginning to wake up. Growing up there was a phrase, Don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.
I think we’re in an age where we don’t need to be moved by the things that we see or the things that we think. We need to stand on the Word of God and trust in God in all circumstances and situations. We can’t rely on our own understanding. We all have a way that we think in the natural. Sometimes we think right, but sometimes we think wrong.
You can look at a situation and make a judgment; and you believe that your judgment is correct in the natural. And sometimes you can be correct. But other times you can see something with your own eyes and make a judgment or perceive, and totally miss it. I remember years ago I saw a show on tv.
This guy met this girl and they were going to meet up on a Friday night for a date. The guy called at the last minute. Something’s come up. I’m not going to be able to meet you tonight. A family matter has come up. The girl decides to go out to this party, and when she gets there, she sees the guy there, and he’s with another girl. She is livid. He’s dancing with this young lady and later is leaving with her. He has a nice convertible parked around back. They get in and this girl kind of looses her mind. She picks up a garbage can full of fish and garbage and dumps it into the convertible on him and her and everything else. I can’t believe you stood me up like this, etc. In the natural it looked like he had stood her up. In reality that was his sister and the party was for her. She had come into town and he was with his sister.
When the rest of the story comes out she was like, Oh my. I’ve made a mistake. So many times we can do that. We can look at situations. One of the worse things going on right now are the campaign ads. They can record a candidate saying something and cut it off, and you only get a part of what they were saying. If you go with what’s said, Oh that’s bad. That’s not good. I don’t agree with that. I’m like, Where’s the rest of the paragraph that went with that one sentence.
We’ve got to trust the Lord with all of our heart and lean not on our own understanding. But acknowledge him in all of our ways and he will direct our paths. Everything is not always as it appears. But if we’re walking with him, we’re seeking his face, we’re relying totally upon him, then we’re not going to make mistakes. Our trust must be in God alone because there’s no one like our God.
There is not one that can impart wisdom, knowledge, and understanding like him. His ways are higher than our ways. We have got to live our life according to that.
II Corinthians 3:4-6 NIV. Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.
We have to trust in him and him alone. I’m pretty competent in some things. There are things I know on this earth because I’ve experienced it. I’ve done it and there are things I can do. I don’t need instruction. That’s not bragging or being arrogant. I’ve learned through experience and I can help other people do the same thing. But my competence is not in me alone. It’s in my God-given ability.
I don’t boast in myself because I didn’t do it myself. God gave me the ability to experience and learn and understand things and have discernment into situations, even mechanical things, material things. But I recognize that God’s given me the ability and insight to do the things that I do.
I also know on the other side of that coin that I can do things I shouldn’t have done or messed with. I saw an old friend from Vicksburg a couple of weeks ago and he said he was going to go do something. He said, You can come with me. And I said, No, I’m not going with you. He said, I don’t want to get you in trouble. I said, Look, I don’t need you to get me in trouble. I do well enough on my own. I don’t need any help. Anybody resemble that statement?
:6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
That’s where our competence comes from. It comes from God. It’s not from the letter of the law. It’s not by law, but it’s by the Spirit of God he has deposited within us to give us the ability to overcome obstacles in this life, to live a life of godliness. I can be as good as I can be. I can do as good as I know to do. But without the Spirit of God ordering and directing my steps, I’m ultimately going to fail, because I can’t do it on my own.
I have surrendered and given self unto the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. And I realized a long time ago that once I did that, I gave up my rights. I’m no longer my own. I’ve been purchased. I said Yes to Jesus. I’m washed in the blood. I’ve been delivered. I’ve been healed. I’ve been set free. I’ve been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, the Spirit of the living God lives within me.
So as I yield to the Spirit then I don’t yield to the flesh. Can I yield to the flesh? Absolutely. It just depends on who I’m feeding the most. If I’m feeding my Spirit I’m going to walk by the Spirit. But if I am being pulled by my flesh, eventually I’m going to be doing stuff I don’t need to be doing. But by the blood of Jesus I’m a new creature, a new creation in Christ.
Sin has been broken and defeated. Can I sin? Absolutely. But I can also not sin. How many of you know when you sin? It’s not like you’re walking in the dark and step in a hole you didn’t know was there. No. We know when we sin. But praise God for the grace of God. He delivers us and brings us home. He’s got us on calf’s rope. He’s got us. He won’t let us go.
Now, we can cut the rope. We can get in a condition where we’re walking so far away from God that we become depraved, that we fall into gross sin, so to speak. You see, God didn’t save us so we could live our lives like we want to live it. He saved us so we could live our lives according to his purposes.
It’s the grace of God that cleansed us, and grace does not give us the legal right to continue in sin. But it is grace that gives us the power not to. I know the greasy grace message gets preached out there. And I’m a grace person. I am grace as much as I can. I try to be. But it’s grace that gives us the power to stand and to overcome. It’s grace that has brought us thus far. And grace will see us home. It’s all grace.
It’s by the grace of God we’re here. So if we can learn to trust God and him alone, then that’s going to empower us and equip us to stand and to overcome in every situation. To not be moved by everything we hear or everything we see. We need to begin to walk with the mind of Christ. And as we have the mind of Christ, then that gives us the ability to trust God.
We are tried in this life. Stuff comes up. Car breaks down. Washing machine quits washing. Dryer stops drying. Lawn mower quits cutting. Hair dryers quit drying. Makeup runs out. What do you do? We have to trust God that he is going to take care of everything that concerns us. He’s always for us and not against us.
God is just as concerned for you, that if you lose a contact he wants you to find it. Just as well if your car blows an engine. Like sin is sin. Big sin, little sin. The problem you’re having. Big problem, little problem. It’s no problem to God. Trust him. Look to him, the author and perfecter of your faith. He’s got us if we’ll let him have us. If we yield.
Psalm 37:1-10. Do not fret because of evil men or be envious because of those that do wrong, for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
That is an awesome scripture. That passage is the fullness of God’s promise to us. He says, Delight yourself in him and he’ll give you the desires of your heart. We could live on that one scripture right there.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: he will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Look, God is for us and not against us. He will lift up your cause. He will stand in the gap. He will go before you just to show his goodness to you and through you.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
I think this is something we all need to practice. Don’t worry. Be happy. Trust in the Lord. You got a circumstance? A situation? A dilemma? The first thing we want to do is run out and fret and worry and have a panic attack, and have all these emotions running through our mind, having knee-jerk reactions, trying to do something to fix it and make it right. When we simply need to stop and drop into our prayer position and give it to God. Just be still and seek his face.
I was teaching on that scripture years ago, Be still and know God. I was doing a word search on that ‘be still.’ We all know be still means to quit moving, to be motionless. One of the definitions for ‘be still’ was to cease from all warlike activities. We’re all, I’m battling. I’m fighting the devil. I’m in spiritual warfare. I’ve got to pray pray pray pray pray to get through. Cease and desist. Stop and be still. Quit fretting. Quit worrying. Quit driving your neighbors crazy with your stuff. They’re your friends. Seek the Lord. Seek the Lord and hear his voice. Seek his face.
Everything you’re going through and anything you come across is not a surprise to God. He is not unaware of your situations, but he wants to know that you’re seeking him and you’re wanting to pursue him because he says, Make your request known to me. It’s not like he doesn’t know what’s going on or what’s in your heart. He just wants you to ask him. He wants you to make a presentation of where you are and what you’re going through, what your circumstances are, so that you can lay it at his feet. And he’ll take care of it.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.
You know, you’re worried about stuff so much that you made a knee-jerk reaction and did something to try to remedy that situation, you did something and it just got worse. You have a little fire and try to put it out, but instead of water you throw gasoline on it? And then you have an explosion! Sometimes you don’t need to do anything. Don’t fret. Don’t fret.
For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
The land is not just the dirt we’re standing on. Land is provision. Land is what you need. Land is a huge commodity, but that means you’re going to take hold of your sphere of influence where you are. All that God has ordained for you will be yours.
A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
As long as you stand on the word of the Lord and trust him, all those little things, those little gnats or buzzing hornets that are swarming around your head trying to overpower you, distract you, harm you, are going to disappear. God will send a whirlwind and take it away.
Joshua told the Israelites, The Egyptians that you see today you will see no more. We have got to get that in our spirit, that the problems that we are facing today, if we will trust the Lord and him alone, and seek his face, and get his direction, get his plan, his purpose, and his strategies, then we’ll be able to overcome anything that comes our way. But we have to trust him at all times. Isn’t he good?
You know, just reading the Word of God right here standing before you, I can feel the power of God in these words. Because the Word of God is power.
II Samuel 22:33-36. It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like feet of a deer. He enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle. My arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me your shield of victory. You stoop down to make me great.
There is not a person that is in the family of God that is weak or defeated. Because God is our shield and our buckler. He is our high tower. He is for us and not against us. He equips us. He makes our hands weapons of war. He gives strength to bend a bow of bronze. Think about that. You pick up a bar of bronze and bend it. That’s some strength, now. And that’s as a bow. That would fire an arrow through an enemy.
He has given us his shield as victory. A shield is a sign of strength. And he stoops down. That means he comes down from where he is to make us great. And the way he makes us great is because he rises up within us.
That’s some good stuff. I hope this is encouraging to you.
Romans 8:28-32. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
How many of you love God? You love Jesus? You love the Holy Spirit? You love the Word of God? You love the worship of God? Well, in all things, in all ways, God works for the good for you.
Say this. It doesn’t matter how things look or how I feel, I love God and he loves me. God loves me, so therefore, I know that I have been called to his purposes.
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined he also called; those he called he also justified; those he justified he also glorified. How may of you are born-again? You know Jesus. Well, here’s the deal. I’ve heard people say, I found Jesus. No you didn’t. Jesus was not lost. He found you. You were just in a place where you opened you and said, Here I am.
So Jesus Called You! Jesus justified you. Jesus has also glorified us. Because the glory of God lives within us in our spirit. And if we’ll allow the Spirit to have control then he’ll guide our thoughts, he’ll guide our words, he’ll guide our vision, he’ll even take care of the very places we live and move and have our being. You know, it’s all sewed up if we’ll just let God do what he desires to do. If we’ll just quit kicking and screaming and trying to do it our way.
We’ve got to come to the place where we relinquish all authority to God. I’m not saying to shrug your responsibilities as a human being on planet earth. We all have responsibilities to do. But whatever we’re called to and whatever we’re doing, let God order and direct it. You having trouble on the job with a boss or supervisor or co-worker? Give it to God. Trust the Lord. Do you want a raise? Then declare you have a raise. Give it to God and he will give you a better raise than you think you deserve.
Don’t bad-talk your workplace. That is the worse thing you can do. Don’t talk bad about other people. You reap what you sow. It’s a proven fact. Bless and don’t curse.
Like I said, it’s a test for me driving through traffic. When you get cut off and people pass you texting and putting on makeup going 85 mph down the interstate. And it’s bumper to bumper. I’m like, Lord please don’t let them kill anybody. Me first. Lord, I know I want to go and be in heaven with you, but I don’t think it’s today. I still have stuff to do. I’ve got promises you’re wanting to send to me.
Learn to bless and not curse. Speak life and not death. Don’t get in the mulligrubs with people. Always speak that which edifies and encourages, that lifts up. You’re going to run into people and situations in your daily walk that probably in the natural may deserve a tongue-lashing. But if you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Allow God to order and direct your words and your actions. Trust him with every situation and circumstance and you’ll see godly fruit manifest at some point. It may take some time, but be patient. Patience is a virtue. God is patient. A lot of times we have to persevere. Perseverance builds character. It does. Keep on keeping on trusting the Lord. Keep knocking. Keep seeking. Keep believing. Keep trusting. Let’s go, now.
In our walk with God we’re going to have to be faithful more days than we’re going to be fruitful. It’s days that we remain faithful that are going to produce fruitfulness. It’s going to produce bountifulness. It’s going to produce the harvest. And the fruit and the harvest is going to come.
And the fruit and harvest are going to be consumed. And then we’re going to continue to remain faithful. Because there’s going to be another harvest. And there’s going to be another bountifulness. And another fruitfulness. Faith and trust. Trust and faith go hand in hand. They’re synonymous in God. And that’s what’s going to see us through.
What then shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Get that in your heart. We’re on the winning team. God Is For Us. Who can be against us? Growing up in Vicksburg, as kids we all played sports—sandlot football, baseball, basketball. Out in the neighborhood we would find a vacant lot and that was our ball field. Whatever sports season it was, we would split up and start picking teams.
We’d flip a coin for who would be captain. Who would get first pick. You always want to get the best guy that could run the fastest, throw the hardest, hit the ball, etc. Here’s the deal. God’s that first guy. God’s the whole team. You got him. You don’t need anything else. He’s the first baseman, outfield, shortstop, catcher, pitcher; he’s the full meal deal; he’s the total package. And he is for us. He is for you. And he’s never against us. Therefore, when God is for us, who else can be against us?
He did not spare his own Son but he gave him up for us all. How will he not also along with him graciously give us “a few things, some things, a nickel.’ No. It’s, He will graciously, graciously give us ALL things. I like what ALL is. There’s not anymore. That’s everything. Glory to God. How many of you need a little ALL in your life? I’m not talking about what goes in your motor—oil. I’m talking ALL, everything.
Psalm 84:10. Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
I have come to realize that there is no place I’d rather be than serving God. To be a doorkeeper in his house, to be a servant, to be his hands and feet in the earth. The old nature will sometimes make you want to resent that, of being a servant. Or make you get tired of always giving, you know. Giving giving giving. Where’s the return? But it’s not about me.
We all get tired and weary. But praise God, he renews our strength morning by morning. His mercies are new every day. He restores and revives and every day is a new day. He gives me two gifts every morning. I wake up and open my left eye and my right eye. I’m still here. I’m still breathing. I’m still kicking. I’ve still got opportunity. I still have the ability to see God manifest more and more in my life, and he’s doing it. And he’s doing it in yours if you’ll let him. Praise the Lord.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield. The Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. There’s that ‘no good thing.’ That’s like ALL. That’s more of that ALL. That’s confirmation of ‘all things.’ NO good thing will he withhold from those that walk uprightly. I think sometimes we just settle for the little things in life when God has so much more for us. Let’s believe God for the more.
We say, God I want more of you; more of you. When really we ought to be saying, God take more of me. He’s given us his all. So therefore he wants us to have all. But in order for us to have the ‘all’ of God, then we’ve got to get rid of the ‘all’ of us.
II Corinthians 1:20-22. For no matter how many promises God has made, they are Yes in Christ; and through him the Amen is spoken by us to the glory of God.
God’s promises to us are Yes. When God makes us a promise, it’s a done deal. So we have to put ourselves in the position to say, So be it Lord. I receive it. Amen. Thank you for it. I thank you for it. His promises will manifest if you don’t give up, if you don’t stop trusting, if you don’t stop believing.
Now it is God who makes both you and us stand firm in Christ. He anointed us. He set his seal of ownership on us. And he put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit guaranteeing what is to come.
We have a deposit from God in our spirit guaranteeing that he’s going to do everything he said he was going to do. How many of you have ever bought anything and you had to put a deposit down? What was that deposit for? That was earnest money, we’ll call it, guaranteeing that you were going to make that purchase. That deposit was to hold that which you were seeking so nobody else could come and get it. It’s off the market because you’ve made a deposit.
God has made a deposit within our hearts, within our minds, within our spirits, by his Spirit; therefore, guaranteeing to us that his promises will be fulfilled. And no one else will have rights to that, because the promise is to all and to all who believe. So I want to encourage you to trust him like you never have before. Just give everything to him because we’re going to have to know that and live that to see the fullness of what he desires to do and manifest in our lives.
How many of you have seen an increase in manifestation here in the last year? How many of you have had promises be fulfilled recently that you’ve been standing for and believing for? I’m telling you, we’re in a time of acceleration, of culmination and convergence. God is bringing us to a place where he is going to pour out upon us like we’ve never seen before.
Everything that we’ve hoped for, everything that we’ve stood for, that we’ve prayed for, the promises that he’s spoken, the prophetic words that have come forth that we’ve been holding onto for years. Be ready. I’m not telling you to get ready. Be ready so you don’t have to get ready because they’re coming forth in the name of Jesus.
So trust him with all of your heart, with all of your mind, with all of your soul and your spirit. Lean not on your own understanding. Trust him and him alone. And you shall see the fullness, the goodness, the manifestations of heaven on earth. It’s here. It’s here. So change your stinking thinking and trust the Lord.
Father, we thank you tonight for your word. I just pray you would change all of us into the fullness of understanding. That we would truly cast all of our cares upon you, and that we would trust you to take care of everything that concerns us. Father, that’s what you said you would do. That’s what your Word says. And I believe that your Word is true and powerful and effective. And you always do what you say you’re going to do.
So Father, increase our abilities, to let go of the reins, to hand it all over to you, and to trust you with everything that concerns us. Because Father, we desire to be your children, your sons and daughters. And we desire to see the fullness of heaven come to earth, and that we walk in the fullness of our purpose, of our calling, to see your will fulfilled in Jesus name. We bless you and give you praise. Amen and Amen.
