Pastor Holmes Powerhouse International Newsletter
Hey, Beautiful! That’s right, I’m talking to you, you’re beautiful , you were made in God’s image and God doesn’t make junk. God loves you. Crazy about you. Can’t take his eyes off you. You are precious in his sight. Wonderfully made, God says. For the guys listening in, get over it, you are beautiful too. There is no earthly measurement to calculate your worth in heaven’s eyes. You are individual, special, unique. You’re a cut above, outstanding, incredibly important. You matter. There is absolutely no one else on the planet precisely like you. Your anointing can be discovered in that difference. Begin to investigate what makes you, you. What makes you laugh, or cry? What excites you? What bothers you? And what would you change in the world around you if given the chance? You are here on purpose, by design, for a reason. The only thing that can keep you from that powerful place of potential and destiny that you were created for is your own lack of faith or obedience… or your excuse making.
No more excuses. Determine with me that we have moved into a season of no more excuses. Maybe you have allowed dreams to die, hopes to fade, vision to diminish, callings to lie dormant, and gifts to remain undeveloped. And you have a catalog of reasons why. You have been hurt, wounded and bruised. You have been disappointed, denied and rejected. You have been mocked, ridiculed and demeaned. You dared to dream and they called you a dreamer. You believed and they called you a fanatic. And just by listening, you have given authority to your critics. You have empowered your dream destroyers. They maybe the people around you, or they may be the inner voices of defeat and inadequacy. Well, today I am declaring for you, to you, and into you, that this is your season of no more excuses. The Bible declares I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. The Word promises no weapon formed against you shall prosper. The Word shouts greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, a follower of His commands, then it is high time for you to realize your abundant life. No more excuses. This world is desperate for your anointing. Believe God’s word. Take a stand for Truth. The Truth that has set you free can propel you to greater victories than you’ve ever known before. That Truth is found in God’s word. Move from excuses to expectation. Exchange your excuses for excellence. Start truth-talking to yourself. Confess this today. Said out loud, repeat it 10 times, or more if needed, until you start to feel it and believe it. “I was created to create, to contribute and to conquer. I was redeemed to be an overcomer. I’m strong enough for this battle, and I’m big enough for this mountain. By God’s grace, I am a powerhouse of faith. ”

• People who make things happen.
• People who watch things happen.
• People who wonder … what happened?
• People who can never see anything happening.
• People who do everything in their power to prevent anything from happening.

The Praying Hands
P.U.S.H. Pray Until Something Happens
“Prayer does not equip us for greater works – prayer IS the greater work.” Oswald Chambers
“Prayer is not overcoming GOD’s reluctance; it is laying hold of His highest willingness.” Trench
“More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” Tennyson
“We are living in prophetically strategic times. The very moral fibre, the economic, cultural and spiritual foundation of this nation is at stake. Prayer and fasting can make the difference.” Myles Holmes
If our prayer teams can pray for you and intercede about any need in your life, let us know today. Send your prayer request to pray@MylesHolmes.com
The best of times – the worst of times – perfectly describes these times. GOD is moving by His Spirit around this world in an unprecedented manner. Multitudes are being swept into the kingdom. There is a desperate cry for pastoral leadership and training from nations where 20 new churches a week are opening. The gospel is being preached night and day around the planet. And at the same time, spiritual lethargy, laziness and complacency are the order of the day for many. High profile leaders are falling morally and compromising their calling and others are grossly manipulating God’s people for personal gain. We are at war with a borderless enemy which is determined to destroy the West and establish an islamic caliphate. My son Zack is back in Afghanistan for his third deployment on the front lines with this demonic enemy. We appreciate your prayers for his safety and the successful accomplishment of his extremely dangerous Special Forces mission. Spend some time in Isaiah 60 today. It is a call to GOD’s people to arise and shine in the midst of the darkness . And remember, darkness has never extinguished light. In fact, it truly is no contest. Turn the light of truth on and darkness must flee. Maranatha!
