T. D. Jakes | – Coping with Complacency – Bishop T.D. Jakes

Anytime something doesn’t work, long enough, you develop a system of survival; you learn how to cope with things that don’t work. But, God wants you to know that you will not die in this vicious cycle of sustenance you’ve built for survival amid your crippling conditions. It’s time to surround yourself with people who challenge you. God is getting ready to tug you out of paralysis and into a paradigm shift!

  2. Many see what's taking place, but not realizing that the Bible speaks of the signs and wonders. But when will many open their eyes to understand "No man, woman, boy, or girl, not even the angels in heaven will know the day nor hour- the Messiah shall return''? So many people are focus on "what I'm going to do, and how much longer are we going to continue to face these constant changes?" Well, the answer is pretty clear "Pray, continue to keep the faith, study the word, apply the word to live accordingly to it, and remain focus on God's promises". I say this to say, God let us all know he stuffed long suffering, so here it is- we'll facing some of the same suffering- feeling paralyzed to the "how come, what if, and when will it all go away?" And that's pretty simple to say too "when people changed their wicked and cold hearted ways, and stop lying to themselves about they have changed, but still operating in the same way they once operated in". Many may feel as if their paralyzed, but the truth of the matter is, what are you doing to keep focus while being still? You only become paralyzed when you find nothing to do with your time while wondering what to do. There's a lot many can be doing, but allowing fear to get the best of them. Don't get me wrong, we all can only do so much while the pandemic is still in place, but some can go back to school to learn something new. Or help a neighbor who needs food or possibly cut their grass if that's an optional choice. There's something that can be done to override allowing self to be paralyzed… Keep moving forward!

  3. Hi beloved church
    I think this is in rev Jake's sight
    I'm not sure if I trust u tube land
    Sometimes when I'm in ministry
    Sights it comes over to utube for
    The programs but I wanta make
    Wise decisions when it comes
    To getting prayer and not get the
    Idea ever I missed out on it you know prayer is vital my Godmother
    Robinson said some days ago she
    Had the cold I been standing for her
    Please help me make sure it's
    Defeated please pray God gives me
    A dream tonight after midnight
    To reveal to me that right away
    God will make sure she's healed
    From every trace of that cold and
    None of it shall touch any of her family anymore nor any of any kind
    Anyone whose ever been or will
    Ever be members of her church
    She deserves the greatest we stand
    For the best for each other
    She's a woman who has the Divine
    Love of God she's willing to go
    All out of her way for anyone
    I'm anyone she never gave up
    On me when it didn't make sense
    She has the heart for most anyone
    But I'd say anyone she don't quit
    On her people of her church
    She loves with the Divine love of God
    She'd help anyone she and hers
    Deserves the greatest
    God keep us free
    From all pain and suffering at least
    On this earth the best is yet to come
    Of goodness thanks for making
    America great and life worth living
