Today I had the privilege of interviewing one of my heroes of the faith, Chris Overstreet. He talks about his Total Transformation 200 where he underwent a complete spirit, soul, and body transformation. He has learned to overcome addictions to food, shame and guilt, and best of all he shares how you can do it to. Check it out!
[fusion_text]So much of our world is built upon avoiding pain. We so hate pain that we do whatever it takes to stay away from it. Its only natural to run away from things that hurt us but someone who desires to grow embraces pain. See what I mean in this short video!

When anyone embarks on a journey of transformation, failure is inevitable. We will fall down. The key is to simply get back up. I made this video to encourage you today to stay focused and keep on keeping on!
Simply add more protein to your diet to burn fat. Protein requires more energy to digest and therefore you burn more calories during the consumption of protein. http://www.youtube.com/embed?listType=user_uploads&list=adamluckey7
Enjoy a time of refreshing meditation. I take you on a quick journey of meditation. Meditation infuses you with the thoughts of God Himself. Meditation is the predecessor of prayer. When we fill our heart with heavenly thoughts we can pray rightly. Enjoy!

What are some of your favorite scriptures to meditate on?
Thank you for partnering with me in my life to see The Kingdom come. On earth as it is in heaven! You can donate here at www.ibssm.org. Just type in my name, Adam Luckey. Blessings!
Enjoy this amazing worship song, its one of my favorites by Elias Arguello. The Lord told this man that If he built a room specifically for worship, He would let him record what He hears. All the sounds in this song are straight from heaven. As far as I am told that is. Let the Holy Spirit touch your heart as you listen.
I love encounters like this that show the reality of the Kingdom of God.
What do you think about this? Share below. :)
This is to amazing to not share with you guys. God loves to heal. Only believe. He will see your faith if you see Him as Healer. Some call these ministers "faith healer," I just call them normal christians. Jesus said that His disciples would do this stuff. :)
Share with your friends! :)
This is the power of God in action. Jesus is healer. Whatever you need healing for, its yours in the name of Jesus.
There is so much power in the name of Jesus. It is pretty amazing to realize how much authority we have in His name.
Even though the tornado didn't touch his house, it did much damage throughout the town.
If you are ever in this situation, command the tornado to do no damage whatsoever!
Even so, a great testimony of Jesus Christ.
The power of God is on display all around the world. You have the same authority, the same power, the same anointing. You have been commissioned by God to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, cleanse lepers... (Matthew 10:8)
The great commission is to GO. :)
Did you know that you have the power to do this? If not, what are some of the barriers for you?
Angels are a part of our every day life. We don't often see them. We know through scripture that they are assigned to carry out the word of God over our life, to protect and to guard us, and so on. Check this out and let me know what you think about it.
Here are some scriptures on angels.
Genesis 19:1 The two angels reached Sodom in the evening, as Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he got up to greet them; and bowing down with his face to the ground,
Genesis 19:12 Then the angels said to Lot: "Who else belongs to you here? Your sons (sons-in-law) and your daughters and all who belong to you in the city--take them away from it!
Genesis 19:15 As dawn was breaking, the angels urged Lot on, saying, "On your way! Take with you your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city."
Genesis 48:16 The Angel who has delivered me from all harm, bless these boys That in them my name be recalled, and the names of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, And they may become teeming multitudes upon the earth!"
Exodus 3:2 There an angel of the LORD appeared to him in fire flaming out of a bush. As he looked on, he was surprised to see that the bush, though on fire, was not consumed.
Exodus 14:19 The angel of God, who had been leading Israel's camp, now moved and went around behind them. The column of cloud also, leaving the front, took up its place behind them,
Exodus 23:20 "See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared.
Exodus 23:23 "My angel will go before you and bring you to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites and Jebusites; and I will wipe them out.
Exodus 32:34 Now, go and lead the people whither I have told you. My angel will go before you. When it is time for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin."
Exodus 33:2 Driving out the Canaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, I will send an angel before you
Numbers 20:16 and how, when we cried to the LORD, he heard our cry and sent an angel who led us out of Egypt. Now here we are at the town of Kadesh at the edge of your territory.
Numbers 22:22-27 But now the anger of God flared up at him for going, and the angel of the LORD stationed himself on the road to hinder him as he was riding along on his ass, accompanied by two of his servants.  When the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing on the road with sword drawn, she turned off the road and went into the field, and Balaam had to beat her to bring her back on the road.  Then the angel of the LORD took his stand in a narrow lane between vineyards with a stone wall on each side.  When the ass saw the angel of the LORD there, she shrank against the wall; and since she squeezed Balaam's leg against it, he beat her again.  The angel of the LORD then went ahead, and stopped next in a passage so narrow that there was no room to move either to the right or to the left.  When the ass saw the angel of the LORD there, she cowered under Balaam. So, in anger, he again beat the ass with his stick.
Numbers 22:31-32 Then the LORD removed the veil from Balaam's eyes, so that he too saw the angel of the LORD standing on the road with sword drawn; and he fell on his knees and bowed to the ground.  But the angel of the LORD said to him, "Why have you beaten your ass these three times? It is I who have come armed to hinder you because this rash journey of yours is directly opposed to me.
Numbers 22:34-35 Then Balaam said to the angel of the LORD, "I have sinned. Yet I did not know that you stood against me to oppose my journey. Since it has displeased you, I will go back home."  But the angel of the LORD said to Balaam, "Go with the men; but you may say only what I tell you." So Balaam went on with the princes of Balak.
Deut. 32:43 Exult with him, you heavens, glorify him, all you angels of God; For he avenges the blood of his servants and purges his people's land.
Judges 2:1 An angel of the LORD went up from Gilgal to Bochim and said, "It was I who brought you up from Egypt and led you into the land which I promised on oath to your fathers. I said that I would never break my covenant with you,
Judges 2:4 When the angel of the LORD had made these threats to all the Israelites, the people wept aloud;
Judges 6:11-12 Then the angel of the LORD came and sat under the terebinth in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite. While his son Gideon was beating out wheat in the wine press to save it from the Midianites,  the angel of the LORD appeared to him and said, "The LORD is with you, O champion!"
Judges 6:20-22 The angel of God said to him, "Take the meat and unleavened cakes and lay them on this rock; then pour out the broth." When he had done so,  the angel of the LORD stretched out the tip of the staff he held, and touched the meat and unleavened cakes. Thereupon a fire came up from the rock which consumed the meat and unleavened cakes, and the angel of the LORD disappeared from sight.  Gideon, now aware that it had been the angel of the LORD, said, "Alas, Lord GOD, that I have seen the angel of the LORD face to face!"
Judges 13:3 An angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, "Though you are barren and have had no children, yet you will conceive and bear a son.
Matthew 1:20 Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.
Matthew 1:24 When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.
Matthew 2:13 When they had departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him."
Matthew 2:19 When Herod had died, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt
Matthew 4:6 and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. For it is written: 'He will command his angels concerning you and 'with their hands they will support you, lest you dash your foot against a stone.' "
Matthew 4:11 Then the devil left him and, behold, angels came and ministered to him.
Matthew 13:39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers.
What do you think about this? Does this increase your faith that angels are real? Does it stretch your box that you have about God and the supernatural realm?
COMMENT below I am curious to know. :)
Richard lost over 200 lbs!
If your interested in true fitness transformation and you would like to get more info about these products, here is the link.
What is the first thing you do when you open your eyes in the morning? Do you think about all the things you have to do that day? Are you instantly overwhelmed with worry about the bills that must be paid this month? Do you lounge in bed for another 30 minutes groggy and lethargic? Or are you programmed to grab your phone and read all your emails?
Does any of this sound familiar?
Well if your human it does :)
We often times start our day on autopilot, unaware of the thoughts that are dominating our mind.
We allow these disempowering beliefs to run wild in our head without restraint. We start our day unintentionally, wishfully hoping for the best. We allow our minds to filled with circumstantial non-sense that gets us discouraged and hopeless.
I don't know about you, but my bible says to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. He is the TRUTH, so whenever a disempowering belief or thought comes your way, just take that thought and flip it. Harness the bad thought and thank it for showing you the truth.
It looks like this... Bad thought comes "I am feeling down, I don't know what I am going to do about this bill coming up, I might get kicked out of my house, I might go broke." Taking thought captive and speaking truth... " Thank you Father that I am blessed and highly favored, thank you that you are my provider and you are a good Father, thank you that I live by faith, thank you Dad that you meet all of my needs."
And Bam, you are on the way to a great day. :)
See, the first moments of consciousness are crucial. See, the quality of our day is determined largely by whats going on in our soul (mind, will, and emotions)
We are constantly building momentum, either positively, or negatively. The key is to flood your entire being with truth, love, faith, hope, and all good things, the instant you wake.
The place where we are building momentum is in our thoughts. Every human being has tons of thoughts going through their head every minute, either positive or negative. Unfortunaetly, statistics say that over 70% of the average persons thoughts are negative. Its like a snowball that builds upon itself.
The answer is True Mediation. This is an intentional act to fill your being with TRUTH and LIFE. Instead of dwelling on the circumstances and problems, instead of letting our minds run on autopilot, lets mediate on the solutions, lets fix our mind on the greater reality.
Thats why it says in Colossians 3:2 to set your minds on things above, and not things on earth.
Theres a saying that goes, "your so heavenly minded that your no earthly good," When in all reality most people are so earthly minded, that they are just no good at all.
We do not deny that there are problems, we just decide to live by the greater reality of faith. Faith moves mountains. We live by faith and not by sight! Its like gravity and the law of lift, we do not deny gravity exists, we just know that the law of lift supersedes the law of gravity. The same goes for you. You live by the TRUTH. You soar above the kingdom of darkness because you belong to the kingdom of LIGHT.
So here are some practical things to do the instant you wake up:
1. Start declaring and thanking God:
We enter into the presence of God with thanksgiving, and in His presence is fullness of joy. God is joy and He loves for you to be Happy. Yay! Furthermore, life and death is in the power of the tongue. Begin to thank God what your thankful for in your life then move to outer circles. Things like friends, family, the people in your life, the call of God on your life, the people you get to serve and impact every day. Thank Him for the little and the big things. I love to thank Him for His presence, His goodness, His faithfulness, that every day I am going from glory to glory, that I am highly favored, that I am blessed to be a blessing to someone today. Most of us fail to realize that this is where the power of God is harnessed and faciliated into the core of your being!
2. Drink a bottle of water
Water does wonders! I can't even begin to describe the benefits of water. Think of it like your car, "It takes an ignition system to turn it on right? The same goes for your body. Your system needs a fresh jumpstart. When we hydrate our bodies first thing in the morning, every function in our body knows that its time to 'get going." It jumpstarts our metabolism thus increasing our ENERGY for the day. Its also like a fresh stream moving all the debris out of the way. Our circulatory needs that refreshment and cleansing love of water after 8 or so hours without it.
3. Move your body
Motion creates emotion. Think about your body when your in a peak state of being. That means your firing on all cylinders, your in the zone, your completely engaged in what you are doing. Your happy and feeling great! Notice, is your posture slouched, hunched over, or laying down? Are you groggy, foggy, or tired in those moments?
No, your head is held up high, shoulders are back, energized, fully aware, confident… You are elated.
Thats why in Romans it says to present our bodies as a living sacrifice. Its a key to King David's life. He was always shouting, singing, extravagently praising the Lord. He was a man of emotional intelligence. He knew how to manage his soul. The times when we don't feel like it are the best times to get wild. Thats why its a sacrifice right? The reward is so worth it. When we first wake up, the last thing you want to do is start doing jumping jacks. You do it anyway because the reward of unlimited energy is greater than the sacrifice of doing something you don't want to.
The quickest way to change your state of mind is to change your posture. Give it a try right now, just hunch over and notice how you feel. Now, sit up straight, chest out, and head up. Feel the difference in confidence? Its amazing!
So jump out of bed and get movin! :)
Now that you are informed and equipped, determine for the next week to do this every morning. I want you to wake up, pound a bottle of water, start moving your body, whether thats jumping jacks or just hopping up and down or going for a walk. Then start declaring with power and authority all that you are thankful for and all the promises of God over your life.
I guarantee you, that the quality of your life will drastically increase by shifting this one little morning habit.
