Kingdom Principles: Dr. Myles Munroe

The week that I heard about Dr. Myles Munroe's departure, like everyone, I was shocked and saddened for this tremendous loss to the body of believers in Christ.

I remembered that he was a dynamic teacher of the word of God and I was moved to search for videos that would remind me of his teaching as it had been a while since I personally heard/seen him on TV.

My first search produced the video below, It appeared to be just several months before. Dr. Munroe was being interviewed in the Bahamas (his home Country) by Pastor Benny Hinn about his signature message The Kingdom.

I was captivated (so was Benny Hinn) by the Kingdom Principles that Dr. Munroe shared and my "eyes" were opened. I can't do justice to interpret, summarize or paraphrase the treasure of information shared so I'll share the interview with you in the video below and It's my prayer that you will never be the same.

2015 God's Will

There are times when my faith is stronger than others.  I'm moving forward towards 2015 with the desire to grow deeper by living out the principles of God in every aspect of my life.

I'm dedicating 2015 to the will of God.  I'm declaring, Lord, not my will, but yours be done in my life;  Lord I trust You... We've come this far by faith
Leaning on the Lord
Trusting in His holy word
He never fail me yet
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Can't turn around We've come this far by faith I will trust in the Lord
Till I die
I'm gonna stay on the battle field
Till I die

I'm gonna treat everybody right
Till I die Donnie Mcclurkin
I Trust You  (Chorus)

Christmas: Jamaican Style

Even though I came to America when I was 11 years old, I have been able to preserve some nostalgic memories of Christmas time in Jamaica as a little girl that warms my heart remembering them.

These memories  just bring back the vibes that were in the "air" during those times like my nuclear family traditions, the Jamaican/Reggae Christmas music playing on the radio, smell of food cooking for Christmas dinner, specific drinks and just the overall happiness, joy and excitement that was felt and seen all around during this time of year.

I especially remember my Mother always making roast beef where she would cut holes all over the beef and inject her seasoning blend of fresh garlic, thyme, scotch bonnet pepper etc.  The aroma that filled the house was mmmmmmm so good and the meal was always mouth watering delicious.

I remember crates of 'irated water' (as my mom calls soda) with various flavors at home.  They were the popular Jamaican brand D&G, back in then the so…

God Favors Me.....Letting Go

I thank God for His continued mercy, grace, protection, deliverance and FAVORS that He displays in my life. Hence the name of this Blog 'Highly Favored'


Who would ever imagine writing a testimony associated with 'letting go'? Last night I had a letting go experience that re-awakened my appreciation and thankfulness to God and for my Mother.

I got my first car right after graduating from High School.   My first job after High School was working at Wal Mart and one evening I was working the closing shift which ended around 10:30/11.  I would take the bus to work, the bus stop was a very looooong walk from my home at the time, and uphill climb too.  My sweet mom would pick me up in the evenings/night when my shift was over. 

One night I was getting off the late shift and usually my Mother would be there waiting by the time I'm ready to leave, this night she was not. Just about all my co-workers leaving asked, do you need a ride? I replied no, my mother is coming for me…

Give PEACE a Chance

As we conclude the Battle Ready series it is my prayer that we have become more enlightned, aware and equipped to face all of lifes challenges, distractions in any form with a Godly resolve, knowing that God is with us and that fact guarantees our Victory. 

I am convicted that having Victory in spiritual battles is synonimus to Peace.

Peace is a spiritual gift and promise from God.  God himself is the Prince of Peace

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

When the 'storms' battles are raging being fought in our lives remember that we serve the true and living God that when we call on Him for help he is ready and faithful to comand peace.

Mark 4:38-40But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”And he awoke and rebuked the wind…

A Good Soilder

This weeks Battle Ready post outlines the job description and qualifications of a Good Soilder for Christ.

A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus2 Timothy 2(NLT)

1My dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. 2 You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.
3 Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.4 Soldiers don’t get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them.5 And athletes cannot win the prize unless they follow the rules.6 And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor.7 Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you understand all these things.

8 Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach.9 And because I preach this Good News, I am sufferin…

Prisoner of War

This weeks Battle Ready post is on being a Prisoner of War.

During Wars, whenever the enemy captures a solider or in some cases a civilian, and keeps them in bondage the captured is called a Prisoner of War.

Being a Prisoner of War has a devastating effect on the Prisoner's mental state due to the loss of physical freedom and emotional freedom too.

Just imagine not being able to express your emotions freely without punishment and not being able to move about as you desired, in addition to being forced to say and do things you otherwise would not.

Oftentimes, Prisoners of War are chained and/or physically confined so that they will not escape their captors.

Spiritual Prisoner of War

Did you know that we can become spiritual Prisoners of War?

If we are not cautious we can easily become Prisoner's of War to any one or more the following spirits enemies:

Slowly winding down on our Battle Ready series.  We have a couple more post to go! 

This week enjoy these Battle Ready Songs...
It's Mighty Nice to Be on the Lord's Side
 Oh-oh-oh, how sweet it is to be on the Lord's side
Oh-oh-oh, how sweet it is to know that Jesus lives inside
Oh-oh-oh, if I don't praise Him the rocks are gonna cry
It's mighty nice to be on the Lord's side.

He's my rock, my sword, my shield
Yes, He is; Oh, yes He is!
He's my captain on the battlefield
Yes, He is, Oh, yes He is!
There is no other place that I would rather be
It's might nice to be on the Lord's side Oh......oh-oh-oh
SO! oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, So Wonderful
Gloo-o-ory, Hallelu
Wilmington-Chester Mass Choir


Stand
What do you do when you've done all you can
And it seems like it's never enough?
And what do you say
When your friends turn away
And you all alone, alone?

Tell me, what do you give when you've given your all
And it seems like you can't mak…

A Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving

I had such a wonderful day yesterday.  I've anticipated this day for a year now and was so looking forward to volunteering with the Bea Gaddy Foundation to serve Thanksgiving to the disadvantaged in the City.

The Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving tradition started by Ms. Bea Gaddy in the 1980's.  She was a single mother of 5 and fell on hard times.  One day she bought a 50 cents lottery ticket and won about $300. She used the money she had, cooked and fed her family and distributed food to her neighbors; this act of selflessness began a long tradition and has grown by leaps and bounds over the years with many corporations, businesses and individuals donating food, money and time to keep this tradition alive on Thanksgiving Day.

Bea Gaddy died in 1991 from breast cancer, however her daughters have kept the tradition alive.

Yesterday my Mom and I had the privilege of volunteering at the Annual Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving and we had a blast.  The event was held at a community center in the heart…

Battle Gear: Camouflage

Christian Solders! How are you doing in the battlefield of life?  Remember there are more with you than against you.....God's Army.

This weeks Battle Ready post is on Camouflage!

Camouflage is achieved by hiding/covering or "dressing" things or uptodeceiveanenemy.  This is achieved bypaintingand color coding people and clothingsothattheyarelosttoview or difficult to noticewhen operating in certain environments.

In the battlefield, camouflage uniforms are worn with a combination of brown and green which are suppose to make solders harder to be detected by the enemy.


Source Depending on the environment they are in, these uniforms help them to blend into the landscape.
Spiritual Environment/Landscape
The natural environment that we are born in is surrounded by the consequences of sin disobedience to our Creator's operation manual (the bible).  The bible is our manual for optimizing our spiritual/physical well being, protection and preservation.

Weapons of Mass Destruction

Hi Friends!!  How was your weekend? My weekend was great. How are you enjoying the series so far?

Today's Battle Ready post is about Weapons of Mass Destruction. 

Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) are defined as:

-any destructive device (i.e. explosive device);

- any weapon that is designed or intended to cause death or serious bodily injury through the release, dissemination, or impact of toxic or poisonous chemicals, or their precursors;

- any weapon involving a biological agent, toxin, or vector

- any weapon that is designed to release radiation or radioactivity at a level dangerous to human life.”

The following is a sample list of Weapons of Mass destruction (WMD) used in warfare: Landmines,Nuclear Bombs, Missiles, Smart Bombs just to name a few.

Spiritual Weapons of Mass Destruction Distraction

Just like the various weapons of mass destruction listed above that are used in physical warfare, there are also various weapons of mass destruction distraction used in spiritual warfare.

Battlefield

Continuing with our Battle Ready series, in the previous post, we talked about the two structured Spiritual Armies that are fighting. Good vs. Evil or Dark vs. Light.  We discussed the fact that both Armies have a General in command of subordinate forces and both Armies have a distinct mission. 

I'm encouraged to know that the Good/Light Army has an extensive comprehensive Mission, which is to Save, Deliver and Protect us from evil and the eternal consequences of sin.  In addition, to eternally destroy all evil and darkness from existence.

Today we are going to talk about the battlefield where this war is taking place.

First, let us define the term Battle.  Battle, often used interchangeably with War, is a violent fight in which Military forces use weapons in order to gain control of something.

A battlefield by extension can be described as the place where this violent fight takes place; it's an unsafe area of conflict. 

I have never been in a physical battlefield of war be…
