“People Places and Things”


Happy Weekend Everyone!!! 😀
Beloved, this weekend, don’t allow yourself to become deceive by yourself. Now there are many of you out there that is asking: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING BISHOP HOUSTON? Well I’m glad you asked. 😀
Many people have allowed people, places or things, dictate who and what they are, and if we don’t guard our identity we’ll become (believe) what others inject into our mind.
Beloved, what you truly are is your best gift to yourself.
Don’t lose that treasure!!! Just as everyone else, your life is a miracle also. Being alive, being here, being where you are, what you are, all of it is eternally wonderful. 😀
Now, what I’m about to say to you may sound mystical, but it’s true, – Beloved, “YOU” are your spiritual gift from God. 😀
Beloved, this weekend, find yourself a quiet place, away from the distraction of what others (people places or things )that are mandating their theory about who you are.
If you’ll sat back and contemplate on what I’ve just said to you, you’ll start to feel yourself grow. You’ll start seeing the grains of sand in the world, and you’ll recognize that you’re the beautiful wild flower that our Heavenly Father created you to be.
Beloved, God placed a perpetual gift into the palms of “YOUR” hands. It’s time to calm, silence, and dispel the incredulous tumultuous winds of others, and let the great quiet voice of God, help you love the gift of yourself.
Have a blessed Weekend Everyone!!! 😀

“Like a Hand in a Glove”

New Morning blog Picture

Praise the Lord Beloved and Happy Monday to you all. 😀
I love the verse that comes from Psalm 28:7 it says: “The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.” (NLT)
Beloved, praise and strength go together like a hand in a glove. You see, when you give God praise, He gives you strength. When you thank God in advance for the answer, that’s what keeps you encouraged.
Now, you must remember, you’re not going to stay strong in faith by mummering, complaining or doubting. That’s because when you’re always murmuring complaining or doubting it drains you of your strength and energy. Believe me Beloved, you’re not going to stay determined if you’re talking about how bad it is all the time. So, if you’re one that is constantly mummering and complaining or doubting, it’s time to flip your switch or put your hand in the spiritual glove and start to praise Him. “Business may be slow, but Lord, I want to thank You that You prosper me even in a desert.” “The people coming against me may be powerful, but Lord, I want to thank You that You’re all-powerful.” Beloved, praise will keep you moving forward!!! 😀
You know so often we think, “I’ll give God praise after the problem turns around.” But if you don’t learn this principle to thank God in advance, you won’t have the strength you need to wait for the promise.
Beloved, every morning when you wake up, start the day by saying, “Father, thank You that my dreams are coming to pass. Thank You that this problem is turning around. Thank You that You’re bigger than this obstacle.” Keep praising Him and keep receiving His strength so you can boldly embrace the victory He has for you!!!
Will you pray with me this morning? Let’s pray.
Dear Heavenly Father, today I give You praise because You’re worthy. Thank You Father God for working in my life even when I can’t see it. Father God I bless You and receive Your strength today.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen and Amen. 😀
Have a blessed Week Everyone. 😀

“It’s Time to Plant”

Bishop Houstons weekend word picture

Praise the Lord Beloved!!! Another weekend has arrived on our doorstep.
Hallelujah!!!! 😀

One of the scriptures I read this morning came from 1 Peter 1:23 and it says: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.”

You know, speaking for myself and the worldly life I lived in the past, allows me to speak the Word of God without any conviction. You see, I’m a living proof a walking testimony when I say, you won’t really get excited about the Word of God until you realize that it’s more than just a collection of divinely inspired promises. It’s a living force that literally carries within it, the power to make those promises to become a reality in your life.

Now the question that stands at hand is: Is it tough for you to believe such a thing is possible? Well if you said yes, then I say to you Beloved, “IT SHOULDN’T BE.” You see, you see it happen in the natural world all the time.

Allow me to give you a quick example – If I were to put a watermelon seed in your hand and tell you that within that tiny, dry seed lies the power to produce a stalk thousands of times bigger than the seed, to produce leaves and roots and a round or oval shaped, green watermelon, you wouldn’t have any trouble believing that, would you? That’s because, you know from experience that even though that little seed doesn’t look like a watermelon factory, but, somehow, given the right environment, it will become one.

Beloved, Jesus says the Word of God works by that same principle. There’s miraculous power within it. It’s a seed that, once planted by faith in a human heart (mind and emotions), will produce more blessings than you can imagine. 😀

Beloved, once you grasp that, you’ll get extremely excited about the Word of God. That’s what happened to me. 😀

Over 20 years ago, I caught a glimpse of what that Word could do. I caught a glimpse of the power within it. Before long, I had a Bible in every room of my house, a Bible in my car, and a tape player or a Christian television program and gospel music playing nearly all the time.

I spent every possible moment in the Word of God because I wanted the power of that Word inside me more than I wanted anything else in the world. I knew it would blow the limits off my life. I’m speaking of limits that had held me back and kept me down for years. I knew that when I read it, I wasn’t just reading, I was planting seeds. Seeds of prosperity, seeds of health, seeds of protection and seeds of victory for every area of my life.

Beloved, this weekend, don’t treat the Word of God like a book. It’s not!!! It’s a spiritual seed that has the supernatural power within it to produce the harvest of a lifetime. This weekend, get excited about it and start planting now!!!! 😀

Have a blessed Weekend Everyone!!! 😀

Bishop Houston’s Weekend Word

Black history Month Weekend wordLet’s praise the Lord Everyone!!! His grace and mercy has anointed our path to see another weekend.

This morning my Bible reading took me to Psalm 40:5. After reading that verse I shouted and praised God. You see, I know what He has done for me in my life. I know the modifications He has reconstructed in my life and there has been numerous spiritual surgeries also. There has been so many I cannot count or remember them all. And I can’t wait to see what else He will provide next.

Beloved, God has wonderful things prepared for you also. Not just for today or this weekend but for your future!!! Even though this weekend you might be facing some circumstances that seem discriminating, or things aren’t going the way you planned, God’s good plan remains.

Even when life isn’t fair, God is always impartial. He’s always working behind the scenes on your behalf to move you forward into the destiny that He has prepared for you.

So, this weekend remember, to keep your life moving in the right direction, you need to keep your views, heart and words moving in the right direction. The best way to do this is by confirming His brilliant movement in your life!!! When you start recounting all the ways God has blessed your life, just like the psalmist, you’ll find that His goodness goes way beyond what you could ever imagine.

So, this weekend, take a moment and think about all the goodness in your life. Confirm His Movements and focus your views on Him. Keep your words and opinions going in the right direction so you can keep moving forward into the abundant life He has promised you!!!

Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone!!! 😀

MAIL CALL!!! – “Why Would God Need To Choose “A” People?”


R. Charles ask:
Bishop Houston, God chose the Jewish people to work out his salvation through them. Why would God need to choose “A” people? Isn’t our God big enough to choose all people? And wouldn’t’ that make more sense?

Thank you for your question R. Charles.

A: In the beginning God did choose all people, until Adam and Eve disobeyed.  And it was the Jewish people that got the end of God’s anger. That’s because they started to believe, trust and have confidence in their own ways. In other words, they abandoned God which took them out of the covenant of God.
So, He had to wipe out the children of the fallen angels (Noah & the Flood).

But, when Jesus came to this earth He brought change. He reached out to everyone Jew, Gentile, Muslim, man, woman. With Jesus there was a new covenant, everyone could go to the presence of God without fear or trepidation.

Beloved, God wants all of us, but all of us don’t want God. All of us would have been included had all of us been righteous.

Thanks again for your question.
