If anyone thinks they are something that they are not, they deceive themselves. – Galatians 6:3
Minister Shawn Reid, explores the idea of surrendering the spirit and practice of Self-Deception in place of accepting responsibility and reinforcing positive affirmations.
Self-Deception is common in today’s fallen world. Deception causes the victim to believe a lie. It is one of the greatest works of the enemy. After all he is the father of lies. Deception comes in many forms and often goes undetected by the one who is self-deceiving. Self-deception is one of the most dangerous forms of deception. It is hard to detect and difficult to eliminate. When dealing with self-deception it is closely associated with the spirit of pride and the spirit of sabotage.
The Spirit of deception would love to keep you from being who God has called you to be. You are God’s beautiful creation fearfully and wonderfully made. Father has called you to be original, not a carbon copy of anyone. God desires you to be the best version of you. Get to know you. Finding yourself can be challenging especially if you don’t know where to start.
And my God will meet your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:19
Minister Shawn Reid, explores the idea of surrender and sitting in the presence of the Lord. Now is the time to go into the presence of God, to power down and hear the word of God for guidance, peace and service. God has called us all to position ourselves and hear the Word so we can share the message of hope, love, peace, faith.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? – Matthew 6:25
Repentance is a choice and practice that is a truly a gift of God. Repentance is your individual opportunity to divorce your relationship with sin and then go towards God. Repentance takes determination, action and practice. Daily practice looks like checking yourself, your words, thoughts and actions to ensure they are in alignment with God’s wishes. Minister Shawn Reid delivers a message of protection, encouragement and prayer addressing the the importance of active repentance.
‘Where is God?’ A normal question as we face darkness and tragedy, but lacking hope and love. Hope and Love will keep you looking upward and connected to God. Yes, we are impacted by tragedy in our personal lives and throughout the world. We feel the weight of the persecutions happening to our brothers and sisters worldwide through radio, television, social media, newspapers. So instead of questioning God and losing faith in God’s promise that through hope and love, we will continue on.
To consistently realize and experience the ‘better; God has for you, you must do the work of putting down those things, thoughts, habits, fears, people, situations that are not for you. Align yourself with God’s unwavering love and guidance to attain and reach the excellence that is yours to claim.
Shawn Lawrimore continues to encourage the importance of Discernment, claiming Dominion, finding your Prayer Language and Exercise your relationship with God. Remain covered with grace, favor and mercy as we utilize the hedge of protection provided by Our Father. Let us take authority over demonic situations so we may remain bound and led by wisdom and faith.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Phillipians 4:8
How we think about ourselves is who we grow into, who we become. You are what you think. If you find that the thoughts that surround your self-worth negative or uninspired, it is time to see yourself through the lense of biblical truth. God thinks and knows that you are a magnificent and the extraordinary purpose that is embedded in you. It is time for you to believe in the word of God, because He already knows your worth. It’s time to trust and believe. And flex that thought life.
Minister Shawn Lawrimore provides a moment of encouragement, prayer and reminder that we serve a God that is capable of extending blessings upon our whole hearts.When we submit to the Lord, we gain a power, strength and healing. In the presence of the Lord, we are reminded that we are in fact, God’s choice. Our submission unto Him asks us to reject the things of this world and destroy those things that does not bring Him glory. So, even now, turn to the Lord, find home in the security of the ultimate provider.
Always remember, in God, we have everything we need. God promises to provide all of the things we need and more. And by His example, be a light in someone else’s life. Continue to do the work you have been called to do. Repent, pray and love one another. It’s time to stop, connect and know the Body of Christ. Be still, come to the presence of God and find your peace in what is promised.
