“However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.”
1 Peter 4:16 NIV
When you find yourself in a situation or your just struggling I share with you tonight "Never feel ashamed". Way to many people live in society with this huge concern of how others will see them.
When you know you are doing the will of God never feel ashamed in anything you do. Not everything is going to come out picture perfect. There is nobody perfect but ONE in this universe.
The worst thing you can do is portray your ok... and all is good. I will say that's not knowing God. That's called wearing a mask and putting on a front.
Let's think about this .... if you where so perfect and had it all so put together would you even bother to seek God? Would you even need Him?
That's a powerful question. You would not... you see this is the same attitude Lucifer had. He portrayed having it all together even to the point that he thought he could do it better then God himself!
Yikes that's a scary place to be in life... who are we kidding... we can't do anything effective without God. We have all tried in the past... did it work NOPE 👎🏼
The true reality is ... as a believer we can't fake in this walk for too long. God wants us to know that when we can't do it He has got it! He wants the Glory! He wants you to never feel ashamed to say Jesus I need you!!!
Many have it so twisted.... Thinking well in order to be a Christian I have to meet a certain criteria.... well ain't that a Joke.
No way...just as you are with your imperfections He is saying your the one I want! He won't even pay attention to the one that runs around boasting about I got Favor, Anointing, Fire of God. So you say you do...
Well if so let's just see how you will react to the adversity that may come your way.
Those who portray to be strong and all well put together be-careful cause you just may fall.
It's ok... don't be ashamed God is not looking for perfect peeps!

Who's on your side....
This is a question many may ask from time to time. As we are all human we can get to a point in life that we may feel lonely, abandoned, rejected and the list goes on.
Today I want to share with you while I'm on my lunch break that you have a choice... you can feel this way or come to understanding that there is someone greater by your side. Constantly there cheering you on, believing in and saying yes you can!!
In today's world many live on what is called "Social Media Ego Trips" it's so sad. Based on the likes they get or comments. Has anyone noticed that this is very dangerous?
I can share this because I was there at one point in my life. I received conviction from the Holy Spirit saying have you yet to notice "You go back" to see who likes your comments and gives you a thumbs up. Your not looking to me who is always your number one fan. Your consumed with what others think of you.
We wonder why so many in today's world are committing suicide or are in depression. We must ask the Holy Spirit to fill us of his wisdom!
You are accepted
You are liked
You are chosen
You are more precious than any precious stone
You are His
He is your number one Fan!!
He is on your side!!
Sorrow looks back
Worry looks around
Faith looks up
CHOOSE THE DIRECTION YOU WANT TO FACE
We all have a story to tell.... Many times we allow shame or just simply what people think to stop us and keep us in a dark place or even better said in silence. I want to share with you this evening that its not Gods plan for you.
Being stuck, being silent could never give God glory. It will only lead you to a dark place where your mind will wonder and ponder. Where's the Battle " In the Mind" .
The most amazing thing of all is that God loves to re-write stories... This is why His Mercy & Grace is new everyday! We must learn when one story comes to an end and when a new one begins. With that said you can't just leave a book half way written you have to bring closure and end it. You are the only one that can accept that Divine Decision to end the story and allow God to rewrite the story this time around.
Your story is going to impact many so why stay in silence. Never be ashamed of your past as it will never dictate your future... I have shared this before the enemy is not looking at your past but looking at your future. Wanting to keep you in silence and not sharing what you have learned where you have been and what you have done. Dare to believe and know that God will never place His children to shame. Hey listen... Its ok to mess up. He likes to take you into that broken place where He can make all things new. It saddens me to see so many people living to keep up with the JONES.... You should never have to live life to please others... Thats not Gods plan at all.
Your story is your story! Its Unique, Its life transforming for someone out there, share it. And let me say this whomever can't see your story the way your creator directed for it to be then to bad to sad for them. Superficial is not in at all. God is looking for AUTHENTICITY, TRANSPARENCY and INTEGRITY. Those three is what really defines you as a true believer of Jesus Christ. And if you ask my personal take on this... I feel the same way. If you can't keep it real with me then its best you go your way and I go my way.
So again, I say do not live on an EGO TRIP it will only destroy you instead of build you. Let the story came to an end and make a decision to allow the the best writer ever to have His way in the story. I can assure you it will be a great seller.
It's Already February very soon March!!!
So what's on your list? What are you thinking about doing and have yet to do it?
This is the year the Lord has declared EXPANSION over the lives of His children.
Isaiah 54:2 states we must ENLARGE the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
ENLARGE, EXPANSION.... You can't and you won't being confined in one place. You have to STRETCH FORTH, this means you will go places that others have no interest at all in going, you will do things that others have no interest in doing, you will say things that no one has no interest in saying. UR they tent. You are the chosen one to do extraordinary things and to reach the unchurched.
For a very long time I have had many ideas and things that I have felt led to do! Truly inspired to just give it a shot. For a long time I put things and people before going for these things, one day I heard the voice of the Lord speak over me and say EXPAND!
Im honest, I did not clearly understand at the moment what the Lord was leading me to do, I knew it was clearly from God but
I of course said .... "Are you serious God how much more"
Funny right... that is exactly what EXPANSION MEANS (how much more) until HE GETS WHAT HE WANTS.
So today I experienced the 2017 Motion 5K Color Run.... I LOVED IT! Wow what a great experience today we ran for those who suffer from "Epilepsy Disorder" from the start to the finish line I was praising the Lord for the EXPANSION taking place in my life.
Whatever it is in your life that you have on "THE LIST" where you know GOD has spoken you press in and you do it! Don't wait for anyone to do it with you, go for it! Believe in You! He has amazing plans for you and as I have shared in the past not everyone can go where God is taking you. And another thing we all must learn that going in the direction of the crowd is not usually what God is asking of "His Chosen Generation" He is calling the ones that are ready to say I'M ALL IN when no one else is in... You get me! Yep that's God. He can't take you to do great and impacting things with just anyone or everyone. So I leave you with these words today.... Allow the EXPANSION TO TAKE PLACE! Below I share some deep words on things taking place in my heart right about now. BE INSPIRED!
First we must LEARN to reject smallness. Enlargement requires us to get out of our small boxes, our small routines, our small thinking and our limited view of God. Caleb and Joshua saw a place of enlargement before them, but the rest shrunk back and stayed small. Caleb and Joshua believed it could be done, but the rest said they were afraid to try and remained small-minded.
Secondly, enlarging the place of your tent means making room for some new people in your life. People will s-t-r-e-t-c-h you! Relationships with people will stretch your nerves, stretch your patience and stretch your prayer life. If you want more, if you’re tired of an unfulfilled, unfruitful, barren life, then God is saying, “enlarge and stretch.” You will never see a miracle until you stretch your faith.
When God tells you to lengthen your cords, it means lengthen your reach. Wider tents require longer cords to keep them securely held in place. Once you lengthen your cords you must also strengthen your stakes, driving them deeper into the bedrock of God’s truth. Life is like a huge tree. The more the branches spread, the deeper the roots must grow.
I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.
As I sit and meditate on the great works of the Lord, I can truly say it's all about Him. Life can be a bit harsh... rocks are going to be thrown at you. You can either let them affect you or you can build with them. You can either know your identity in Christ or not. There is no happy medium in this.
God himself will place you in a process! It's because He knows the plans He has with you. Many times we don't allow the process. Let's keep it real, we want it to be our way! Life does not work that way. The process is needed.
I can say that for a very long time I thought my way was the best way. Our ways are not the best, and it's not till we understand this. We all need God to step in and take over. Once God takes over there is no rock, obstacle, challenges that will be impossible. You see that's where God is He is in what you seem to think is IMPOSSIBLE.
Listen, it's ok to start over and let God! Don't worry for a moment what others may think. They have not worn your shoes or walked where you have walked. Let people talk! You do what God is telling you to do. KEEP IT REAL your not suppose to know it all. Your wrongs will teach you. Your wrongs allow God to redo it over. We have to always know we are the "CLAY IN THE HANDS OF THE POTTER" and it's not until He says ok this is the way I want it.
Never feel ashamed; always keep it real your imperfections will teach you first and then others. When we have to have a front "You know we act like we have it all together" A MASK, A COVER UP we are only fooling ourselves! Keep this in mind a book is being written and God is the almighty author and publisher. Let Him erase and re-write as many times as He wants!
"He is making the BEST of your story"!
So I say this again KEEP IT REAL BE TRUE BE YOU. Your His MASTERPIECE.
The bottom line is you are what you tolerate.
I can say in this journey of being a born again believer the key to moving forward in what God has planned for your life is knowing "YOU ARE WHAT YOU TOLARATE". You must learn to KEEP THINGS SIMPLE. Life does not have to be so complicated; in fact I think we tend to complicate things.
Funny that I am sharing this tonight, for a very long time I have wanted to Blog! It was you know like something cool, interesting and since I love reading articles I was always truly inspired by many awesome bloggers. I always say I want to leave behind that I Inspired many! Well back to why I'm blogging this.... I could never figure this darn thing out. It was like really... where and how do I start....
I myself made it so complicated.
Again, this is why I say “ You are what you tolerate” I could have continued to make excuses for why I was not learning how to blog and so on / or I could have just asked someone who knows! "You know Daniel in this instance". God places KEY people in your life and we must learn to recognize them all I had to say was "Bro I need your help" Please help me set it up! It was that easy! What I waited three years for was resolved in less than two hours... really!! Yep.. for Real.
In life we truly BEAT AROUND THE BUSH instead of ASKING when the bible says;
Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
What are you wanting to accomplish?
What is holding you back?
Have you asked?
Don’t tolerate just wanting, go and get it!
Holla Back Pastor!
I'm being asked what's going on... what's the scoop! We would love to share the good news. What's happening with DOWC ( Divine Order Worship Center ). Soon there will be a video documentary on this but I don't mind blogging for now.
DOWC was "organically birthed" how many believe that can still happen? Well yes it can! It can happen with Amazing Faith. It was birthed from the Orlando Dream Center ( said one day by Pastor Rebecca E. Medina of Living Word Church, Orlando Fl ) When she said it I personally I had no idea what she was talking about. I even got offended ( Ignorance ) Thank God today I understand.
A group of people actually 7-10 people that absolutely loved to serve the less-fortunate came together and started studying the word of God ( in a very small conference right here in Orlando, Fl it was actually a place of business owned by Miguel Adorno ) the Gospel became so real to then and before they knew it; it grew to a point that we had become a place of Worship. We actually ran from being called a church, we got to having about 45-65 people each Sunday whom where totally passionate about reaching the lost and broken, mind you Im talking about the ones that had been rejected from society but deep inside knew there was something special about them, a rare breed group of people. One day Pastor Abner Adorno said ( the underdogs ) just to know not ONE In this group had come from a positive legacy or better said a good childhood, no one came from a pastoral home or evangelists, prophets and so on. Nothing Ecclesiastical here!
What made this group stand out was the illumination of God's word which had placed a Divine calling upon their lives! Many did not believe in this group of people but they remained steadfast in the Truth of the Word and calling from God. Three years pressing in totally depending on Jesus. Learning and growing every step of the way, making mistakes but learning from them. A bunch of REAL PEOPLE.
The programs of the Orlando Dream Center have stood firm helping thousands of less fortunate; providing food for the hungry, clothing for the bare, baby diapers and formula for families, summer camps and even a twice a day feeding programs for children in the summer months.
Today we are excited to say we have stepped into deeper waters believing God for more. We have understood it took us to know what Divine Order truly meant to really become His Church.
We introduce to you the latest which is : The Lake Nona Project;
We are happy to share that we are NOT located in a building of our own, we are actually renting in a hotel paying weekly and we meet up for socials in a local cafe shop called Yogurt Breeze. We are the Church that can not be hidden on a Hill.
What we need from you!
1. Lots of Prayer
2. People to join along side and serve ( A Dream Team )
3. Financial Support
We want to take on the area we live in; which is where Senior Pastors Miguel and Janelle Adorno live Lake Nona and have Multicultural Church for everyone!! We want a place to call home! We want people to Believe just as we have believed in a Divine Call from God upon their lives. How they too can be the pioneers of a powerful legacy. We refuse to rent a building we are going to wait on the PROMISE. Growing families one at a time to make a commitment to God first, to there Family, to there jobs and or profession, TO THERE CHURCH "URchurch.life and then to a ministry. THAT'S DIVINE ORDER!!!
Why Lake Nona? Because It's our backyard and we believe that what we need is right here. We know our community ( our surroundings ) we are finally strategically planting.
We will continue to faithfully serve the South Orlando Area / Kissimmee and surrounding areas with programs of the Orlando Dream Center which is a separate identity and a 501c 3 Non Profit Organization .
We would love local church's to support the vision of reaching one life at a time with the Orlando Dream Center which is not affiliated with any specific local church. ( Its not a Bait Trap ) Its what we are all called to do!
So to sum it all up we have accomplished Gods Divine Order to understand that We are the Church and with that being said we are happy to introduce; URchurch.life right here in Orlando, Fl.
Come and Join us!
