Here’s an unconventional post with an unusual title. It’s important that I write some entries this way. One reason is to deliberately twist the standard way of thinking. Another is to grab your attention. Third, and most importantly, is so that you can delve deeper into the meaning of the title, and apply some of this stuff to your life!

What is ‘This’?
With that said, I feel the need to answer a question that begs for an explanation: “What is this?
'This'

Excuse me for being selfish, but this post is all about me. Just kidding, it’s actually about you too, but the title refers to me. Please see the Bible verse that follows:


3Jn 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
You see, this is not simply a Bible verse to me. It speaks volumes and empowers me whenever I read it. Why? It’s simply because I know the context of that scripture.
What’s Your Name?
However, more importantly, I know what ‘beloved’ means. It means David, or rather the name David literally means ‘beloved’.

Holiday Traditions

That special time of year arrives again. Christmas and the holidays are here and many of us wish it lasted forever. We get presents for each other and spend a great amount of our time with family and friends, exchanging gifts, eating, sharing, laughing, and so on. We have a special spot reserved in our hearts, schedules, homes, and at our tables for the people we’ve classified as our family.That’s what the holidays are all about right? Not entirely.

The substance of things hoped for, based on KJV Hebrews 11 in the Bible. See verse one below:

Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Going Deeper
I want to analyze this verse further. Do you see what I see in the title (before we even get to ‘the substance of things hoped for’)? What I’m referring to is, ‘Faith IS’. ‘It’ is. Everything you want or desire IS. Faith is knowing ‘it is’. It is what? It is there! Your victory, your breakthrough, your accomplishment is there by faith.

Allow me to clarify the title. I will do so in this brief story:

In Prayer
One day a few months ago I was praying for a breakthrough. I literally asked God to ‘just’ give me a victory over my circumstances. I immediately came to the revelation that God is not a ‘just’ God. He does not just want to meet our needs. The fact is our needs are already met. We breathe. We eat. We drink. We have shelter. See KJV Luke 12:16-32. God wants to do more for us than we can ever imagine we could have received from Him. In fact, I believe He is sitting in Heaven waiting for somebody to get out of the ‘just’ box, and receive the good things He has prepared for them.
