“…people from all languages will take firm hold…of his robe and say;  ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.'”  (Zech. 8:23)

When the old prophet Zechariah made that statement to some children of God, it really gave me pause, and opened up a whole new level of meditation for me. 

What would make someone grab on to the shirt-tail of a person not of their own language, or ethnicity and want to have what they have, and want to have their God.  It’s because they connected their success with their God. This prophet was speaking the words of God to his listeners. Is that really God’s dream for His people?

God knows human nature. That’s why He loves to bless His people. Success draws attention! What we are, and do speaks so much more effectively than any words we say. The man Paul, writer of most of the New Testament letters teaching people about  why Christ died, and what we have because of it, told them this: “Follow me as I follow Christ.” Grab my shirt tail! He was convinced that his success as a believer was tightly connected to his success in gaining followers. People listen, – and then we watch. We’ve seen the results of Apostle Paul’s life and influence. When success is attached to godliness, – we see the greatest following. People want to be loved and blessed.


While we watch the current of major opposition that President Trump has and is functioning under, we continue to watch his influence increase. Not only here in America, but around the world. Is it his words that has brought this about; – I think not!    It is his record of success?

I hope my point is clear to my reader by now. If we have what God Almighty wants us to have, and if we become what He wants us to be, we will never have trouble being an influence to people who are watching us, and then we can lead them to a better life. I like to read after people who have “been there and done that.” We never have to praise our own accomplishments. Just be! – and others will want what we have.


There are two things that will define us.

1. Our patience when we are trying to climb up from the bottom;

2. Our attitude when we have reached to top!

If you have reached the top, there is no better way to spend the rest of your life than trying to help someone else get there too!

A bible believer is often like a salmon fish, swimming upstream against the current. There are times when we face water falls in our effort to reach our dream or destination.

My reader may be facing a water fall right now. It could be a family situation, or a financial issue. Or it could be a health problem, or a breach in a marriage. Whatever it is, there is a God who knows about it. He is watching and He is cheering us on. When a bible believer is born again,  – he/she is born to WIN. We are given the ability through Jesus Christ to rise above the obstacles.  We are no longer as one who has no spiritual help or hope.

Think with me about that salmon fish. No other fish can do what he does.  That fish can’t get out and walk around that water fall, – they don’t have feet. They can’t fly over those falls, – they don’t have wings. They have to rely on the abilities that are given to them. They utilize the power that  God gave them, and facing the challenge they do what seems impossible. And indeed it would be impossible for any other fish.

A bible believer will draw on the words of God, and  put into motion what God has given him, and move toward the water fall with faith in his God -given and supernatural strength, the faith of Jesus Christ.  We just ‘kick it in gear’ and do it. If you are a believer, you have what it takes to get over the falls (obstacles). –  The spawning grounds are just ahead where you will see the multiplication and increase.

REMEMBER : If we let the devil do our arithmetic, he uses subtraction and division. If we let God do our arithmetic he uses ‘addition and multiplication. SELAH! Never let the enemy (devil) do your thinking for you.

ILLUSTRATION: The following is a letter received from a pastor in Wisconsin; –                “…two messages (tapes) received from Gerald Davis…after listening to them several times they made up their minds they were going believe God for debt-free living…go cash and believe God for supernatural help. He received a letter from the attorney generals office of Wisconsin. The mortgage company who carried the note on their home had been caught in some illegal activities. He called an attorney who looked at the letter, and said; ‘Do not send them any more payments. Put the payments in a special account at the bank.’ The attorney told him he would get their home cleared of all debt based on this information.” While that is a very dramatic and unusual story, it illustrates the magnitude of what can happen when we draw on the words of Almighty God.

God has many ways of helping us get over the waterfalls!

SPECIAL NOTE: The attacks on believers in this nation and around the world serve only to make the church and believers grow. Satan is a loser from the beginning. We NEVER LOSE because we DON’T QUIT!

Good things happen for us – when we help others!
