25 Days of Power – Self-Improvement Challenge

Power Banner Named

25 Days of Power – Day 1 “You Are Empowered By God”

Did you know God has provided ways in His word to empower His children? Did you know there are specific things you can do to contribute to answered prayer, good health, a peaceful life and more? It’s true!

Once we are saved, we don’t just float through our days hoping to catch God in a good mood when He is willing to answer prayer or provide for our needs. His word gives us many things we can do continually to set His hand in motion.

If we do what God instructs us to do then He will give us all He has promised to give. This if/then type of promise is called a covenant promise. It operates the same as when an attorney draws up a contract between two people. One party agrees to do a particular thing and – after it is done – a second party agrees to do something else. God empowers us to have control of certain circumstances by offering us these covenant promises or blessings.

You Go First

God usually wants us to take the action He has laid out in His word before we are rewarded. He empowers us to do what we should then rewards us once we have done it.

Today’s Self-Empowerment Challenge:

Read through your Bible today, make note of the times God empowers you. You may want to make a list or mark the verses in your Bible as you find them so you can remember when to act and what to do to release God’s best in your life. Many times your actions are all that stand in the way of answered prayers. Is God waiting on you?

My 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer Journey

August 11, 2015 Leave a comment

testimonyI pray that this article finds you experiencing the goodness of God in your everyday life, ministry and business.

As some people know I completed 21 days of fasting and prayer on August 8th. The purpose of the fast was for clarity, understanding and direction. The reasons I decided to fast were because one, I feeling sluggish in my spirit, second, I was spiritually tired and weary, third, I knew something was missing spiritually and naturally, but I couldn’t put my finger on it and fourth, I wanted God to reveal to me what I couldn’t see going on around me and what I didn’t understand was going on within me.

I chose the Daniel’s fast because the Word of God teaches in Daniel 10 that Daniel set his mind to gain understanding and he humbled himself before God through 21 days of fasting. I wanted the spiritual warfare to be defeated by the power of the Holy Spirit on my behalf and I needed a strength stronger than my own to conquer the state of mind that I was in.

What Has This 21 Days Journey Been Like For Me?

Overall, this experience was a blessing for me. It started off good, however, I was disappointed that some people who I thought would (and should) join me didn’t. There were some family and friends that I was depending on to be a part of this journey. What a “breakthrough” for me that they did not. In the past, my discouragement would come from expecting people I know to be a part of what I was doing. Today, I only expect the ones God wants to be a part to be a apart of what I am doing?

As my inner man was being strengthen, the Lord revealed to me three main things that were lacking in my life concerning my ministry, calling and business:

  1. Momentum –  mine was low because I was focusing on the wrong people wanting the right results.
  2. Asking – I was asking the wrong person for help. The right person became the wrong person when he/she doesn’t honor their word. I was wrong to continue asking the person for help.
  3. Accountability – I wasn’t accountable to the right people because my momentum  was low and I was focused on the wrong person.

What I Know For Sure!

I have been entrusted with the wisdom of God, a preaching assignment, and an awesome gift of teaching. Because my momentum and excitement became weary in doing well, I sat on my gifts for a season – using them “just a little bit.” God revealed to me that I am equipped and trained with all that I need to experience the more abundant life purposed for me.

The Lord showed me that there are people who I am assigned to – that’s you and others – that are waiting for me to continue on in my assignment showing up in a big way for them with what He has given me. I have been entrusted  with the solutions to their problems and answers to their questions.

What’s My Commitment To God and You!

As a result of this time of fasting and prayer my commitments are:

  1. I commit to trusting completely in God being led by His Spirit in knowing who to trust in the natural.
  2. I commit to using my spiritual gifts and talents wholeheartedly to empower, equip and train the Body of Christ with biblical principles and strategies for victorious living.
  3. I commit to using my business and ministry training and skills to teach other how to be successful in the market place and in marketplace ministry.
  4. I commit to establishing divine connections for spiritual growth and success in kingdom living and prosperity.

Having the gift of wisdom means having other gifts connected to it. One can teach without wisdom just releasing information. However, with the gift of wisdom, it is hard to teach and not bring about transformation in the lives of others.

I have been entrusted with a lot from God and I commit to doing “greater works” from now until it’s time for my glory transition.

Thanks to those who took this 21 day journey with me, those who prayed for me and for being connected to me.

My commitment to you is to stay connected to you, serving you with what I have in a spirit of truth, integrity and loyalty.

My Special Gift For You!

As a thank you for reading this article (or shall I say long article – lol) and for being connected with me I will be giving to you some items from my teaching products to help you in your life, ministry and/or business.

I will post another article tomorrow with the web page link for you to access your special gifts.  The web page will be live until August 31, 2015. Be sure to access your “special free” gifts by then.

YOU are Very Special to me. I am humbled and honored to be connected to you.  My prayer is that you will experience God’s very best for your life, ministry and/or career.

I love you with the love of the Lord.

In His Integrity,

Minister Ginger London

Know Your Spiritual Gift – What Should You Do Next?

spiritual-gifts-815x400

What should You do once You know my Gift(s)? Here are seven ways to unwrap your spiritual gifts.

  1. Dedicate yourself to learning more about your gift and how God wants you to use it. He will let you know in his time what you are to do.
  2. Develop your gift by using it. Seek out a Pastor or biblically based life coach, take courses that relate to the gift, and pay attention to how you develop in your gift.
  3. Study the Scripture.
  4. Talk to others having the same gifts because they will either have insights or may need your encouragement.
  5. Pray for guidance and strength. You may become discouraged at times about your gift and how you are being use or not being used.
  6. Be sensitive to the need of others when it comes to executing your gift.
  7. Do not neglect your role because God entrusted it to you for a reason.

Facts about Spiritual Gifts:

  • Spiritual Gifts are not natural ability or talent.
  • Spiritual Gifts are not the Fruit of Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25).
  • Spiritual Gifts can be abused.
  • Spiritual Gifts are received, not achieved.
  • The Gifts allow for diversity within unity because we each have unique work to do.
  • Each member of the Body of Christ is unique, important, and useful.
  • Spiritual Gifts are good but only when ministered in love (1 Corinthians 13).
  • The Gifts are diverse, but all are equally honorable.

Eight Ways to Discover Your Spiritual Gifts

Discovering your Spiritual Gifts

How do you discover your Spiritual Gifts? Here are eight ways I believe will help you.

  1. Understand what the gifts are. Once you understand each gift you will be able to discern more effectively what yours might be.
  2. Accept that you are gifted with these special endowments given to you by the Holy Spirit on behalf of our Father who has a great plan for you.
  3. Analyze yourself. Look at your interests, passions, personality, and even your talents and skills.
  4. Seek confirmation from others. Sometimes people who are in tune with spiritual things can see what gifts you may have.
  5. Evaluate the results of all that you learned and observed about the gifts you believe you are blessed with. Do you see evidence of these gifts in your life?
  6. Dedicate yourself to ministry because in doing so you will eventually find your gifted path.
  7. Take an assessment online.
  8. Sit with a Biblical/Christian Coach, Counselor or pastor to determine where God might be using you.

Know Your Spiritual Gifts

spiritual-gifts gold box

Some people believe that knowing what your gifts are bare no true meaning. However, knowing the purpose of a thing is very useful. Not knowing the purpose of your gifts will cause you to live in what I call the “Haphazard Zone”.  That is the zone where you walk aimlessly through life, day-to-day not knowing who you are or what is going on. You are allowing life to happen to you and not living life to the fullest.

Discovering your spiritual gifts will open your eyes to the purpose of your life.

Can you imagine where your life would be if you understood what God had for you? Or what you were born to do? Everything has a purpose. When you don’t know the purpose of something you will abuse it. You have a destiny. You have a call. God gave you gifts that you were designed specifically for.

The three main reasons why you need to discover your Spiritual Gifts:

  1. Knowing your spiritual gift(s) will enable you to find your place of ministry in the Body of Christ. Every Christian has a particular function in the body of Christ. Your spiritual gifts equip you to carry that purpose out and to enhance the Body of Christ.
  2.  Knowing your spiritual gift(s) will enable you to determine your priorities. Knowing your gifts will keep your life with boundaries around it. You will not just let any and everything into your life. One of the most common problems we all face is having more things to do than we have time to do them. Paul says in Romans 12:6-8, that we should make the use of our spiritual gifts a priority in our lives. In simple terms, when we have too many things to do we must choose to function in the area of our spiritual gifts. In order to set priorities you must know what your spiritual gifting is.
  3. Knowing your spiritual gift(s) will be of great help in discerning God’s will. To expand our last point just a little bit further, knowing your spiritual gift(s) can be very helpful in discerning the will of God in the direction your life takes, especially your occupation. For example, if you do not have the gift of teaching or leadership, a teaching position perhaps that is not the field for you.  There is a very distinct relationship between knowing the will of God (Romans 12:1-2) and understanding your spiritual gift (Romans 12:3-8).

Here are a few more reasons why knowing your gift is important:

  • Commitment based on the focus of our gifts rather than abstract commitment will help you keep your commitments
  • You will have more effective service in whatever area you are working in
  • Appropriate commitment to ministry
  • You will have more confidence in overcoming inferiority about who you are and what you are to do

Got To Get Myself Together – Why Is Prayer So Important?

July 14, 2015 4 comments

Prayer Hands

Why is prayer so important?

Prayer not only lets us grow closer to our Father in heaven, but also allows him to release to us and through us his power. In James 5:16 it says “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (KJV).”

An effective prayer life can have a huge impact on not only our own individual life, but on the lives of those around us. Through prayer we can have an impact on our local community, our country and the world.

Prayer enables spiritual growth and opens the door for the Lord to impart spiritual power. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (KJV).”

It opens the door for salvation. In Act 2:42 it says, “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” and Act 2:47 says, “Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved (KJV).”

Prayer opens the way for miracles. Act 12:5-7 teaches us,  Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.  And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands (KJV).”

We should pray and believe for wisdom. James 1:5-6 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed”. (KJV)

If you lack boldness ask the Lord to give you it. (Act 4:29-30)

We should always pray with determination and faith, believing for the Lord to do mighty works through us and through those we are praying for. We should always pray in line with the will of God and his word.

Prayer is important to the spiritual growth and development of a believer’s life.
