Before you break through to the next level of success, understand that you will nearly fail. But, don’t stop PECKING! Allow me to explain. People who’ve achieved great things are no more talented than you. They’ve simply learned to lean into their mistakes and persevere through them to the next level of challenge and expectation. Don’t quit! I’ve never seen a quitter win, but I see winners because they didn’t quit! God has you right where He wants you. Keep PECKING!
Hello To all of our WIFI Ministry Subscribers, Visitors, Family and Friend’s… Happy Tuesday to each of you! I pray that each of you reading this post, have a sensational week and remember that we must not quit if we want to gain access to our tomorrow.. So don’t give up!!! Of note, I have enclosed day number 37 of Pecking Orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes Ministries... Read them, apply them, and keep pecking!!!
Before you give up, affirm that the sky is the limit! You’ve been POSITIONED and EXPOSED. You’ve taken COURAGE and gathered KNOWLEDGE. You’ve set your goals high, knowing you could not achieve them on your own. Even if this is your second or umpteenth attempt, DON’T GIVE UP! You’re right on track. You were not created to play it safe. Take the risk and continue asking God, “Father, what’s next?”

Prayer Changes Things

Romans 12:2 (NIV) 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
With all the pains and trials that life itself put us through, it’s good to know that we can stop and talk to God and ask him for help… I did on last night through great physical pain, as I continue to struggle over 20 years with a rare muscle disease that causes my mind to go haywire from time to time… Nevertheless, I ask God as I always do before I lay my head down to sleep to forgive me if I’ve done or said anything wrong or offended anyone…. In his word, it says that he is faithful and just to forgive us from all unrighteousness… We just have to stop and realize that there is no problem to big or to small for God to handle. God can handle anything that we throw his way. I often say that I’m so glad that God is not like man, he listens, he knows all, and he cares for me… In I Peter 5:7 it says to Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you…. I’m certain that he does, and continue to go back to drawing board daily to deal with the trial of life that present themselves sweet on some days and other days, I survive.. Those are the days that I want to learn to lean to God even more when it seems like the pain is to hard to bear…
I know I’m not the only one the world that deal with continues medical issues, but I do know that the God whom I serves continues to heal me and he looks beyond everyone one of my little faults and continue to recognize my needs which are far greater than any problem that I can present to God… God is and he is a problem solver, and he always give solutions to our every need…
Keep a sister in prayer as I continue to press on this journey called life… Love everyday because everydaywith Jesus is sweeter than the day before….
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law. Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it: …
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you. I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law. You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness. …
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God. Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; …
As we embark on day 4 of Lenten Season, today we will be focusing on: ‘STRENGTH”
Psalm 28:7 – (KJV) “The LORD is my STRENGTH and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise him.”
Webster’s Dictionary states that “STRENGTH” is defined as:
