PRAY BIG! By Nina Keegan


In Jeremiah 33:3
it says... This is what The Lord says.. The Lord who made the earth who formed and established it, who's name is the Lord; ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.

Friends when you do not know what to do, when you are at a loss, when your whole world seems to have turned upside down...look up! Look to the Lord our God, the one who created everything, the one who knows everything, and longs to tell you things you do not yet know..he wants to reveal his glorious plans to you for hope and the future for your life.. 

No matter what it looks like right now, what the enemy has meant for harm ,God will use for good ..ask him what you need to do, ask him for His plan.. His solution..he said that if any man asks for wisdom he will give it to you liberally.. ask ..ask him and you shall find him!

The Bible says in Ephesians 3:20 that God will do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or think!

So let me ask you...

If we are asking BIG and thinking BIG and God will do exceedingly abundantly more than that... then what should we be worried about? Gods got it all!!

God has a plan.. he knows what he's doing, everything is designed for a specific purpose in mind.

 His purpose is for us to know him, to trust him,  to recognize his character and faithfulness, to know with our whole hearts how much He loves and cares about every concern we have and that He longs to perfect them all!

God is a man of his word.. he's ready to answer our prayers but we first must go to him..humble ourselves and ask for His assistance.  God can take care of all of our needs with or without us asking but when we ask, we are acknowledging that he alone is God, that we know and understand that we cannot accomplish things in our own strength .. When we try to do it all in the flesh, we are then trespassing on God's domain.

We are to lean not on our own understanding but trust him with all things ,set aside our worries and be determined to obey God and trust him with the outcome.
When we pray, who do we think we're talking to? We are talking to the Creator of the entire universe!  God can handle whatever it is you need today him ..lay your concerns down at the foot of the cross..

Let the blood shed from Jesus Christ cover it all's already been bought and paid for...
 Your victory is at hand the Lord.. pray big! Give thanks and praise to the Lord of all of heaven's armies for He is abundantly good and his faithfulness endures forever!!

Hallelujah!!! Hallelujah!!  all the glory be his.. in Jesus name we ask and pray!

Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven


Matthew 7:7  “Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it

GOT FAITH? By Nina Keegan


Faith is not like a Spicket that can be turned on and off at convenient times.. God is not someone that stands in the corner  waiting silently for us to only call on him when we're in trouble ....
we must always and continuously seek him so when the trials do come (and they most assuredly will) 
we are prepared for the battle!
We do not have to shrink back in fear.. IF WE FEAR GOD WE NEED NOT FEAR ANYTHING ELSE..

Does faith  mean that we only trust God and all of his goodness when everything seems to be going smoothly, when we don't seem to have a care in the world..?But when the bottom falls out of our status quo lives we morph into a panic stricken mess of anxiety and this what we call faith? 
because seems to me that the minute the going gets tough; the minute the trials happen.. our faith becomes shaken and diminished and that's when it should be the strongest!

The Bible says we will not be shaken, we will not fear bad news... this is when our faith should be put into its purposeful action ..this is not the time to run, to fear,  its time to speak the Word and go boldly through unwavering faith straight to The Lord and declare HIS GLORIOUS PROMISES OVER OUR SITUATIONS!



God doesn't always hide us and shield his believers from difficult circumstances, many times he uses these very situations to stretch our faith 

The Bible says that what the enemy has meant for our harm, God will use for our good..

God allows tests for a purpose.. THEY ARE A CALL TO TRUST GOD FAITHFULLY .. Trials can become in us either a refining fire or a they can become an incinerator of distraction and despair. The choice is solely up to us!

 we can't ignore these challenges that come our way we must learn to use our faith in God.. We must grow up in our faith... become stronger in our hope as we steadfastly seek him and him alone for the support, for the restoration and for the complete redemption and abundant victory! 

God cares for those in need he's closest to the brokenhearted, he longs to give us his beauty for ashes, he wants to protect the downtrodden and he will confront their oppressors...

Let's identify with God's attitude.. let's identify with his character of brilliant faithfulness.. he will rescue us...he has seen the violence done to the helpless.. he has heard the groans of the poor and they will not go unnoticed!!!

We are more than conquerors in Christ and he always causes us to be victorious! 

God sees the evil deeds... he takes note of them all!  He listens to our cries.. we do not have to face the wicked alone... God is by our side and he is always with us ..he is our guiding light and loving influence.. The battle is never ours but his and it's already been WON on the cross!

 The abundant way to live our life is by continually basking in God's presence ..welcome him into your mess..  We must invite him into our situations by humbling ourselves, laying down our pride... let God make us aware of our true selves and who we are in Him!!! 

Let this trial you are in serve a purpose as you bring glory to God through your testimony as to his upmost faithfulness as you trust him to lead you brilliantly through it all.. !! Amen!

Psalm 11:4-7
4 The Lord is in his holy temple;
    the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
    his eyes examine them.
5 The Lord examines the righteous,
    but the wicked, those who love violence,
    he hates with a passion.
6 On the wicked he will rain
    fiery coals and burning sulfur;
    a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 For the Lord is righteous,
    he loves justice;
    the upright will see his face.

The Great I AM by Nina Keegan


(Ex 3:14-15)
God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM

Two small words, 3 simple letters, "I AM".
The Lord tells us repeatedly in His Word that He is the great "I AM"...I thought about that and wondered why He never added anything else to that statement.. I felt like God was being so vague and most certainly leaving out all the wonderfully important details and awe inspiring adjectives that He could have used to enhance His own resume or curriculum vitae. Yet, He chose not to. At no better time do the words "less is more" or "simple abundance", hold more truth... God's unvarnished, powerfully simplistic, 2 small words say more about this most awesome God than a whole novel ever could. They assure us that not one miraculous trait defining our God could ever be left out. "I AM", says it all... The magnitude of that is amazing . HE JUST IS!!

I realized after I pondered this fact for a while that if the scriptures would have actually added the enormous sum of greatness that would be necessary to define those two impactful words that the Bible would have tripled in size. The possibilities are infinite! You simply cannot list everything that God is!

Those 2 words are profoundly meant to be followed by whatever we need them to say, and whoever we need God to be at the time. We get to continuously fill in the blanks as needed.. There's no limit on how many chances we get to fill in those voids.. We can unceasingly call on Him. He is what we need, when we need it. He does not ever run out of supplies. He does not have to find someone else to take care of our situation. He does not have to locate a 24 repair service for us. We do not have to wait for the window between noon and five for His eventual arrival. He is never on vacation, never asleep on the job, He is not too busy with more important things, He is never too tired, too angry, too frustrated or too overwhelmed to be whatever it is we need. His customer service ranks the highest of all.. He never puts us on hold or lets our message go to voice mail." What do you need God to be today?"

(Isaiah 9:6)
His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

When we are sad, depressed or lonesome, God is our loving, kind, edifying, friend, savior and counselor. He is our bountiful provider when we fall on hard times. God is our divine healer when we are sick. He is our mighty protector who guards us and keeps us safe and free from harm. He is the teacher that fills us with knowledge and wisdom and orders our steps. He is the architect that draws the well thought out plans for our lives . He anoints us with talents, abilities ,ease and purpose. God is the prince and author of peace! He will go to battle for us, and fight for us. He is our deliverer! He is our dwelling place, our secret safe haven of hidden security. He is our unbridled joy, He is our towering strength. He is our restored energy when we are exhausted. He is our motivator when we need encouragement. He is a shoulder to cry on and our stoic voice of reason. God is the master of miracles and the supernatural creator of everything.
He fulfills our dreams, He validates us, He is our hope and our future. God is our infallible guide on this path of life. He is the very essence of our beings and He is the definition of pure love. He is after all our Father, the great "I AM!"

(John 8:58 )
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.

In Hebrews 13, The Word says that God will NEVER leave you nor forsake you. So I like to follow the words I AM with the word Here. God is here, now! Always! God is everything and anything we will ever need and He is always with us...He will never leave, never!! Imagine God being with us wherever we go, through thick and thin, through the good, the bad, the blessings and the storms. No matter what, He is there! I like to picture Him right where I need Him to be. I like to visualize him in the passenger seats of my 2 son's cars driving with them and protecting them when they are on the road. He sits with us when we are hurting, sick or sad... He is a shield of armor in the face of adversity hovering over us providing safety and His masterful protection. He follows us everywhere! He will not forsake us!! That is God's sweet promise. The Word of God does not lie! It is our personal guarantee and every word is gloriously still alive today!

(Numbers 23:19 ) 
God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should change his mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?

What ever you need today, go boldly to the thrown today and call on God to be there ready and willing, wearing one of His many hats!! Let the promises of God fill your heart .God is all you will ever need, He is faithful, mighty to serve, strong and omnipotent , He has unlimited, universal power and authority over all and is perpetually by your side!!! Bask in His greatness today... He is right here....

(Joshua 1:8-9 ) 
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

(Psalms 48:14) 
For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.

Thank you Father... You are the Great "I AM!".... I will call on you and you will answer me!! You will never leave me! I praise you for your amazing selfless love!!! In Jesus name!!!!
