Ephesians 2:10 says that “We are God’s masterpiece.” That means you are not average. You are not ordinary. You are one of a kind. When God created you He went to great lengths to make you exactly the way He wanted. You didn’t just happen to get your personality. You didn’t just accidentally get your nose, your skin color, your gifts or abilities. God designed you the way you are on purpose, for a purpose. The Apostle Paul said, “We should be to the praise of God’s glory.” In this passage, he’s not talking about giving God praise with our words, although that is important. He’s encouraging us to make our lives a living praise to Him! When you understand your value, and not only who you are but Whose you are, then your very existence will give God praise. When you are secure in who God made you, and you go out each day being your best, your life will give God praise. In other words, driving to work you’re giving God praise. Mowing the lawn you’re giving God praise. Going to the grocery store you’re giving God praise. Walking through the mall you’re giving God praise! Honor God today by accepting who you are. Make the decision to be the best you can be. Get up every morning and set your mind in the right direction by making positive affirmations over your life: “I’m the apple of God’s eye. I’m His masterpiece. His fingerprints are all over me.” If you will learn to accept and approve yourself and have a right opinion about who you are then you’re going to rise higher. God is going to pour out His blessings and you will live that life of victory that God has in store!

Isaiah 30:15 promises that “in quietness and calmness will be your strength.” Let this message empower you to live a life full of strength, power and joy — the fruit of standing in a place of peace.

We all face challenges, but the size of the problem is not important. It's our perception of the problem. It's how big or small we make it in our minds. David said in Psalm 34:3, "Magnify the Lord with me." Instead of worrying, let Joel remind you in this faith-building message to use your energy to believe! Develop an unshakeable faith and magnify God. Instead of magnifying what you're facing, magnify what's right and focus on His promises. No matter how large an obstacle may be, God is much bigger than anything we may face!

Loving Unconditionally

What would this world be like if we simply loved people instead of judging them? In this eye-opening message, Joel will inspire you to love like Jesus loved. Jesus said in John 13:35, "By this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." Notice, others are not going to know by how many times we come to church, or how many scriptures we quote, or even how many miracles that take place. The way others will know is by our love for other people. Anybody can love people that are just like them. But how about loving people you don't agree with, people you don't understand, people that are not like you? God is counting on you to make a difference in the world, and it all begins with your love toward all people. Let this message encourage you to come up higher in your love for others.
