Jeremiah 29:11 ESV “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Greetings to each of you on first Monday in November. Blessings I have enclosed day number 29 of Pecking Orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes. As I said for the past few days, read them, and let every word marinate into your spirit, and keep Pecking!
**In following Naomi, Ruth was EXPOSED to a myriad of new things, including gleaning remnants from the side of a field. While she was experiencing something less than desirable, but altogether new, she was completely unaware of the other method in which God EXPOSED her. Little did she know Boaz, her future husband, was watching her. She was POSITIONED for the redemption of her family line. God will EXPOSE you and POSITION you for His purpose.
I pray that each of you have a blessed and wonderful week as we embark upon 30 days of pecking orders.. We are excited, and have made some changes, and have exposed ourselves to some great opportunities in these past 28 days, and we are simply excited about where the Lord is getting ready to take us. Higher grounds is an option that we welcome with open arms. In addition, I have enclosed day number 28 of Pecking Orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes. Read them, and let it marinate into your soul, and keep Pecking!
EXPOSURE to more opportunities and people will quickly teach you not to get wrapped up in how things appear. Some details simply cannot be ascertained until you experience the fullness of the entire situation. A particular opportunity may look perfect on paper while your previous experiences instruct you to use caution and not take something at face value. As you head toward the fulfillment of your goals, heed the caution your previous experiences and EXPOSURE suggest. Your newfound knowledge and wisdom will prevent you from making mistakes based on impulsive and emotional decisions.
You are pregnant with ideas and concepts for such a times as this, and God is going to use you like never before!! ~Bishop T.D. Jakes

Hello To all of our WIFI Ministry Subscribers, Visitors, Family and Friend’s… Happy Saturday to each of you! I pray that each of you reading this post, have a sensational weekend and remember that we are gaining one hour starting tomorrow, so don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour!!! Daylight savings time!!! Of note, I have enclosed day number 27 of Pecking Orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes... Read them, apply them, and keep pecking!!!
Fullness of life requires a dedication to experiencing and being EXPOSED to new things. Imagine remaining where you are and doing the same thing you’ve always done for the rest of your life! If not for the sake of your future, go to new places and try new things just for the sake of getting out of your own comfort zone and living the full life God has ordained for you!
The Importance of a Right Outlook “I may not know where I go from here, I may not know what I’m going to have to fight, I may not know what I’m going to have to go through…but I do know one thing…I will not, I shall not, I must not…GO BACK!!”
2 Timothy 1:6 (KJV) “Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God,which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.”
Hello To all of our WIFI Ministry Subscribers, Visitors, Family and Friend’s… Rejoice!!!! This is the day that the Lord has made… Let’s Rejoice and be glad in it! Psalms 118:24.. Of note, I have enclosed day 26 of Pecking orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes… Read them, absorb them into your spirit, and put them into effect so you can see that changes needed to make your life enhanced for the better… ~ P.E.C.K. Your way!
Like inmates in a prison yard, so many of us stay within the limits of the cities or neighborhoods we’ve grown up in, never venturing outside of them for the slightest amount of time. God has given you freedom–freedom to be EXPOSED to all of His creation and not just your particular street in your particular part of town. Take steps now toward EXPOSING yourself to more. Go to museums, theaters, orchestral performances, cultural festivals or anything you’ve never experienced in your own city as this will ignite a desire in you to see what lies beyond the “prison” walls of where you’ve always been. A whole new world of discoveries awaits…
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Blessings to each of you on this Thriving Thursday….. Make that list of things you need to do and check it twice to make sure you don’t leave nothing out… Much love to you all and know that I have enclosed day 25 of Pecking Orders directly from our Bishop T.D. Jakes.
One difference between Successful people and unsuccessful people is EXPOSURE! Successful people read and study new things, go new places… always preparing for the next move by accumulating new knowledge and experiences. These very experiences uniquely equip them to handle the vagueness of the future while they move toward their goals. Make a list of the different things you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t yet availed yourself of the opportunity. You’ll often find it’s your lack of COURAGE that’s prevented you from doing them. Take action on the easiest one and accomplish it. As you’re EXPOSED to more, you will desire more!
Hello to all of our WIFI Ministry Subscribers, Visitors, Family and Friend’s.. Greetings to you all… Let’s continue to open up our horizons and expose our lives to greatness… God desires that we experience the finer things in life.. God made everything, and to him everything we owe.. He’s a great God, and let’s continue to Love and Worship him with all of our hearts…
I have enclosed day number 24 of Pecking Orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes... We are truly being blessed!
With the estimated 7 billion people on the planet and the ability to be on the other side of the world in less than a day, it would be incorrect in saying there’s nothing new to discover. Sadly, many of us think just that! God’s EXPOSURE requires us to leave behind what’s comfortable to embark upon the uncertainty of the unfamiliar. As you move toward your goal, you will encounter the unknown. God uses EXPOSURE as the practice arena for the newness and uncertainty you will experience in your future. It’s best to learn the lesson of being comfortable in uncertainty now, than having to learn it later.
Happy Sunday to each of you.. Just wanted to let you know that we are going to make it!!! We are on the right path and I just wanted to encourage you to stay focused because we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus…I don’t care what it looks like, you are going to make it!!! Just trust God, because things are going to get better… I believe!!! As our Bishop tells us everyday… Keep PECKING!!! P.E.C.K.
As you continue to go forth with your Pecking Orders, I encourage you to broaden your interests, people and hobbies…. they broaden your perspective and outlook. Don’t just build spiritually, but build on the foundation of your spiritual life. It could be as simple as reading different magazines or newspapers, or going to places that are different from where you normally go. Get outside of your political belief system, gender or race. Broader views are a great repellant to ignorance. A complete world-view leads to a richer, fuller life.
Some things need to be put back where they belong. Translated: some relationships simply need to be severed! Others may require some closure for you to move on. Still, others need to be put back in their proper place. “Can two walk together, except they be agreed” (Amos 3:3)? Pray this prayer with me: Holy Spirit, please clean out my heart, make over my soul, and allow me to get rid of the accumulated things and people that diminish me as an individual, as an employee, or as a visionary. In Jesus name, Amen!
This is a must read book that I recommend highly in this day and time we live in…
T.D. Jakes uses inspiration from the Lord’s Prayer to reveal how the act of forgiving—and learning to be forgiven—can lead you to a more joyful, peaceful, and purposeful life. As unconditionally loved children of God, we are all forgiven. Through His grace, we can forgive ourselves and the people around us. In this way, we can live the fulfilled and happy lives God has for us.
Esther 2:15 “Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her.”
Good morning WIFI Subscribers, family and friends… Day number 10 is looking real good… I don’t know about you but I’m excited about the future and you should be too.. Keep preparing, stay in position, and keep pecking!!!!! ~ Minister Evelyn Diane Thomas
During singlehood, before you make a rash and irrational decision, see your loneliness as a gift and solitude as your time of preparation for a good relationship. It’s all about POSITIONING! During her time of preparation, Esther did everything she was taught to do in order to win the eye, admiration and affection of a man she had NEVER met! God positioned her right where she needed to be to win Xerxes’ heart and save her people! Singlehood is not a death sentence. It’s a time of preparation and POSITIONING!
Preparation: 1 Peter 3:15 ESV “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect”
Positioning: Esther 2:16 (NIV) “She was taken to King Xerxes in the royal residence in the tenth month, the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.”
1 Corinthians 7:32-35 (ESV) “I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.:
1 Corinthians 7:2 (ESV) “But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
“The greatest enemy of the church is not demonic forces, it’s not Principalities and powers… The greatest enemy of the church is IGNORANCE… We don’t know who we are… We don’t know where we come from… We don’t’ know how powerful we are.. We have never been and will never be a religious institution… We are a political movement.. We have come to tear up the Kingdom of darkness, to establish the Kingdom of li
ght.. The Kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent taketh by force…”
“I’m not asking you for permission to do anything.. Does it look like I’m forming my lips to ask you permission to succeed.. Does it look like I’m forming my lips to ask you permission to be anything…
Turn to your neighbor and say: “You’re dismissed..” This is the last day I’m turning to you to affirm me, and to confirm me, because if you don’t know who you are, you will never be able to know who I am.. NEVER!!!!!”
Dr. Cindy Trimm Sermons #WTAL 2012
James 1:5 (KJV)”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.”
Happy Tuesday to you all… We have made it to day number 9 and I’m loving how the Bishop is ordering us us to ask question.. Ask the hard questions!!… I’m up for the challenge knowing that we have not because we ask not!!! Ask them questions and keep pecking your way through! ~ Minister Evelyn Diane Thomas
Always have the COURAGE to force the hard questions! It’s the issues you never thought to ask about that can wreak havoc on your life! Throughout the Bible, you see people like Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus and Paul not shying away from the difficult questions their situations posed to them. Each of them did one key thing: they sought God! In James 1:5, God promises wisdom to all who ask Him for it! Take COURAGE in God’s wisdom! Never be afraid of the hard questions.
