Quiet Strength: The Power of Silence

Silence is powerful.  Silence is spiritual strength. Silence is great confidence. Being quiet is a choice, but not a permanent status.

Recently, my dear mom passed away and it was urgent that we quickly plan her funeral. Usually, I’m quite capable and confident in my decision-making and administrative skills. I’m a serious researcher, a lover of analysis and a gifted organizer. I am the type of person who reads every review, investigates, becomes knowledgeable about the issues and ultimately makes an informed decision. I can even do this very quickly when the situation calls for it.

But this time–this time I was stuck. I was lost. I was bewildered.

I didn’t know where to begin processing. I was overwhelmed with the weight of the decisions that needed to be made. I was completely unfamiliar with this version of myself. Unsure which direction to take first, or even what I wanted to do, I felt lost and disoriented. I couldn’t muster up enough strength on my own to accomplish the task. I was mentally fatigued.

Paralyzed by uncertainty, my ability faltered. In prayer, I clearly heard God tell me to be silent and be still for a few hours. To not plan or organize, but to dwell in the pain, the grief, the uncertainty and let Him show me the way. Grieving was foreign territory for me and I was on a deadline here.  I had no time to sit still. But I obeyed God and did absolutely nothing for several hours. I just rested my mind from anything having to do with my mom’s funeral.

God was very gentle with me–like the loving Father He is. He took my hand and slowly led me to a scripture in His word. It was Isaiah 30:15 which reads: “In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.” The word for quietness in Hebrew means “repose.” And “repose” means calm, relaxed, free from all anxiety; to be still, to lie down with support underneath.”

I had known this verse by heart forever, but in that moment, it hit the core of my being. Quickly, the Lord reminded me that silence is a strength builder. It is an equalizer; a stabilizer. It replenishes our mental resources and reloads our inner man. It is a secret weapon to spiritual strength.

Silence is more than the absence of noise — it allows the presence of everything that we need. Silence is also where answers to problems find us, rather than trying to force ourselves to find them.

While some people dislike a silent environment, equating it with being alone and lonely, I look forward to spending time with just my thoughts, seeking silence with eagerness, as if anticipating a gift. Cutting out the noise to hear from God is a gift you give yourself. Indeed, silence offers profound benefits, many of which we aren’t even aware.

Do you need strength today? I encourage you to calm your mind from the cares of this world and quiet yourself before God. Break away from the distractions and turn to the Lord. He’ll cover you with a blanket of peace, fill you with His strength and give you rest in the midst of everything you’re facing.


Remember, you have the power to activate “noise cancellation” and deactivate “internal chatter” in your mind at any time. It’s done by simply quieting yourself.  To learn more about Barbara Bryant, visit

Treasure Your Uniqueness

Are you too critical of the child that God made?  Do you think God could have created you better or improved a few things better like your nose, butt, breast or lips?  The answer is no.  You are wonderfully complex.

God never used a cookie cutter to create people.  He made you from scratch.   I really want you to get this…. You are God’s original work.  He made you once.  One of you was enough for God.    When you were born you came hot off the press.  Like a trade mark, you have been patented by God.  He has exclusive rights to your creation.

God made you exceptional. Being exceptional is having an outstanding quality which makes you different from the crowd. When a person is exceptional, he/she displays an outstanding quality or skill that cannot be duplicated.  If you believe this, you will not have a problem complimenting another person for their skills, choices or achievements.  You will celebrate other people because you know your self-worth.

You were made deliberately.  You were created with detail. God’s precision is seen in your individuality.  Your individual uniqueness is God designed and your qualities are tailored fit to you.

God made every part of your body just the way He wanted you to look. The Creator’s handprint was dramatically placed on you.  God prescribed every single detail of your body. You are His crowning creation. You are a direct result of God and was perfectly designed for His glory.  Bottom-line, you were created in a special way for a special reason. He made you on purpose for a purpose.

God did not design you to be anybody else because there is nobody else on this earth that could ever be equal or equivalent to you. When you try to be something that you’re not, it comes across as disingenuous and you risk losing whatever it is that makes you special.

Sometimes we get down on ourselves if we feel like we’re different than others, but being unique is a very good thing. Think about it! No one else has been given exactly the same makeup as God has given you. God has fearfully and wonderfully made us, setting us apart as the brightest, clearest mirror of His creativity.

God has uniquely wired you to be different. This why you need to spend time getting to know yourself. When you do, you will discover that you are an amazing person. Take a good look in the mirror, and tell yourself, “No doubt about it—I’m fearfully and wonderfully made!”

Remember the old wise saying…Being the best is great, it means you’re number one. But being unique is greater, because you’re the only one. No one in the world is more beautiful than you, so treasure your uniqueness. Your uniqueness is an answer to someone’s problem.

You Matter

When was the last time you acknowledged and appreciated yourself? That’s right: YOU. Not your spouse, not your children, not your boss, co-workers or friends. Just YOU!  Seriously, think about it. And if it’s been a long time since you last gave yourself a pat on the back, then I want you to spend the first 90 days of 2018 acknowledging and appreciating yourself for everything you’ve accomplished. Ask yourself this question: How many times have I enjoyed success in the past month? The past year? The past five years? Am I able to recall my successes as easily as I do my failures?

Whether you believe it or not, this is not a selfish and egotistical act in the least. By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you’ve achieved–and perhaps what you learned via minor mistakes, stumbles and losses, it will recharge and refuel you to go forward with new passion this year. My personal experiences have taught me, that the secret of success is to regularly practice acknowledging and appreciating what you have and what you’ve done. There’s power in the truth: “Be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more. Be thankful for what you do; and you’ll end up doing more.”

Many Christians fail to value the small successes they experience every day. And yet they can recall in grand detail the times they failed or made what seem like unforgettable mistakes. I want to encourage you to learn from your mistakes by understanding them and then letting them go, refusing to dwell on them. Be gentle regarding your weaknesses. Acknowledge that they were there to meet a need, but now you’re finding new and more positive ways to fulfill those needs. By adopting this attitude, you can lovingly release the old negative patterns and celebrate the magnificent part of you that suddenly shines through.

In 2018, I want you to become your own greatest advocate and cheerleader. I want you to develop a habit of applauding the greatness in you and hang out with people who will cheer you on to victory. Rid yourself of doubters, detractors, haters, hell-raisers and intimidators. Hook-up with encouragers and strong supporters.

What parts of yourself are you proud of? At this point, you should be able to focus on the positive aspects of your life and remember all the wonderful things you’ve accomplished. If that describes your focus, celebrate yourself, right now. Allow yourself to enjoy how wonderful it feels when you finally get something you have worked for, and long dreamed about. And that calls, first and foremost, for basking in the joy of being you.

You matter, so relax and bask in the knowledge that you’re making an impact that no one can take away from you.

Is Your Belief-System Working?

I have no problem saying, “I don’t know some things about God.” But just because I don’t know some things about God, it does not mean, I don’t believe in God.

John 14:1 says, “…Believe in God.” What Jesus meant by believing in God, means believing everything that God has said about Himself. “Believe in God” means trusting that God deals with us not according to who we are, but according to who He is. “Believe in God” means to account God trustworthy, that God is faithful to God’s promises.

Is your belief-system working?   Most people don’t realize how their beliefs shape them and their life.  What we believe changes the way we perceive the world around us. What we believe impacts the way we think. What we believe influences the choices we make.

Your belief-system is powerful.  It is what causes you to feel the way you do. It determines your behaviors and actions.  Your belief-system is your “auto-pilot.”  Your “auto-pilot” makes you do what you do, believe what you believe and is the source of everything you do in life.   If God is not your “auto-pilot” you may need to change your belief-system.

You might say, “I believe in God.”  Are you certain that you do? We believe in our problems, our setbacks, our troubles, and our hurts because we cry over them, complain about them, and have pity parties with our test and trails. But are you certain that you believe in God? Do you really believe that God will do what He says He will do?

When you study the Scriptures, you clearly see God spoke, and later God did what He said He would do. That should strengthen your faith, knowing God will perform His word. No spoken word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.  For this reason, you’ve got to believe in God.

Everything we say about Jesus, everything we say about the Holy Spirit, everything we profess about the church, salvation, judgment, blessings, miracles and eternity all depend upon the God we say we believe in. So, let’s take a look at this God in whom we say we believe.

God is omnipotent. He can do anything He wants to do.  God is omniscient which simply means, God knows everything.  God is omnipresent. He’s everywhere at once.  So how do we apply this?  Believe it!  Why? It’s what the Scripture says.  It is what God has revealed to us concerning himself.

Bottom-line, when it comes to deciding what believing in God means, why not believe and act on what God Himself said?  When you do, your life will reflect it and God will perform the impossible in your life.

When Jesus Prays That Your Faith Fails Not, It Won’t!

God has warned us about Satan in the Bible. Satan is a master destroyer of the souls of men. He has been a murderer and a liar from the beginning, so God commanded us to be sober and vigilant because our adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.

Satan’s greatest desire is to have you, that he may sift you as wheat (Luke 22:31). Don’t think of the sifting of flour when reading this scripture. When God talks about sifting wheat, He is referring to a very violent action used to separate the grain from the stalk and chaff. It literally means “tearing the wheat apart.” It means to beat, bend and shake the wheat stalks so violently that the valuable grain shakes loose from the shaft, which is worthless.

In essence, Jesus was saying to Peter: “Satan doesn’t think your faith is real. He thinks if he overwhelms you with temptations, burdens, arduous tests and painful trials, your faith is going to self-destruct and fall to the ground as worthless refuse.”

The devil is not ignorant. Somehow he understood that Peter was set apart to bear much fruit. He knew that God would give Peter power and authority that would be mightily-used used against his kingdom of darkness. This is the very reason Satan wants to sift you. He knows that you have been set apart by God and prepared by His own hand to be a powerful witness to many. And the greater your potential for God’s kingdom, the more severe your sifting will be.

To put it simply, you are on Satan’s hit list. He wants to sift and distract you away from your purpose, your ministry, and your kingdom assignment. He wants to sift and woo you away from church, from prayer, from the abundant life, and the list goes on.

Perhaps, like Peter, you are being shaken and sifted. If so, you ought to rejoice knowing you have such a noteworthy reputation in hell. Satan wouldn’t be after you if you weren’t a hazard to his evil plans. He only seeks to sift those who threaten his work. He always goes after the tree with the most potential to bear fruit–after the believer who is making an impact for the kingdom of God, a threat to his evil plans.

It’s the image of God in you that so enrages hell. It’s not your gift, your car or your material wealth. It’s your yoke-breaking, devil-destroying anointing and power.

Just as He did for Peter, Christ intercedes, praying for us, that our faith will not fail.   Wow, that’s huge! The very God of the universe prays for us. When the Savior prays that your faith does not fail, it won’t. Because when Jesus intercedes for us, it’s not just any old call for help, but a specific intercession on our behalf.

Jesus’ prayers are not only powerful and effective but they’re also omniscient. Jesus knows in advance everything that we will go through. He knew what would happen to Peter–the denials, the lies, and the cursing. Jesus saw it all beforehand, so He knew exactly what Peter needed. Jesus knew exactly how to pray for Peter, and He knows exactly how to pray for you.

Isn’t it interesting that the Lord didn’t pray that Peter wouldn’t fall? He prayed that his faith wouldn’t fail. He did not want his faith to shipwreck in ruins. And in the end, Peter’s faith did not fail because of the Master’s prayer.

As long as you’re alive on Planet Earth you will face troubles, trials, problems and the pressures of life that might otherwise shake your faith. But because Jesus is praying for you, your faith will never be shattered. Don’t lose your faith!

Sorry, I Have No Fuel for Your Fire!

Gossip is wicked and sinful — a seething and destructive evil. Gossip, in its original form, is a violation of the fifth Commandment. Exodus 20:16 tells us: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” Gossip is a form of betrayal that involves listening to and/or passing on something uncomplimentary about another with the wrong intent or purpose. It perpetuates lies that ought to have died or never been spoken. It assassinates character, and the reason it’s so dangerous is because it’s so subtle and ambiguous that many are unable to recognize it for what it is.

Gossip is quite common and seemingly casual—even innocent, yet it is hurtful beyond our wildest imagination. Its venom works like a silent poison, betraying confidences, undermining treasured relationships, and making enemies of close friends.

The word “gossip” is defined as “one who reveals secrets; one who goes about as a talebearer or scandal-monger.” A talebearer is a person who circulates rumors that are either distortions of truth or outright lies designed to do mischief.

As believers we are told that love covers a multitude of sins; that means that even if there is an actual offense or sin, we are not to broadcast it to others, but rather to forgive and pray for that person, believing God will turn things around. Jesus is our model; we know how many sins He not only covered, but forgave and forgot on our behalf, giving us a gracious and undeserved second chance. Should we not do the same for those we claim to love and respect?

Scripture goes on to say that the tongue is a flaming fire that has incredible potential to destroy if we aren’t careful, and if we say we are followers of Jesus, we break His heart and make the cross of no effect, when we gossip and wound His beloved. The Word goes on to say that the world will know us by our love. Do they see Jesus when they look and listen to us saying careless and hurtful things about others?

It’s up to us as believers to give others the benefit of the doubt, believing the best of them rather than the worst. That’s why it’s so vital that we not be quick to believe everything we hear. The Golden Rule makes it clear that we are to do unto others as we want them to do unto us. The mounting evidence emphasizes how important our words are, and how God will judge us for every idle word.

Think of how many times you’ve believed something to be true only to discover that it was totally wrong. How often have you been deeply wounded by a rumor that got out of hand?

Proverbs 26:20 says, “Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down.” A talebearer can’t keep stoking the fire if you remove the fuel. How do you remove the fuel? Refuse to listen to rumors. Speak up and let them know that you find their gossip distasteful and offensive. They may not respond well, but they will no doubt know where you stand, and will respect you for protecting a reputation, knowing that the next time it may be theirs.

Let 2017 be the year where you stop adding fuel to the fire. Stop repeating everything you hear. Stop texting everything you hear. Stop emailing everything you hear. Stop classifying your email as “newsy” when you’re actually being “nosy.” Be very cautious about the things you share about others in the body of Christ. Remember, God hates the one “who sows discord among brethren” (Prov. 6:16-19).

When You “Do”, You’ll Receive What’s “Due”

I believe with all my heart that God wants you to live a life of favor. I believe He wants your life to be radically blessed with favor and increase. I believe God wants you to prosper and be favor-conscious in everything you do, giving Him glory. It’s His promise to us in the Bible.

I know the devil wants you to believe that “it’s never going to happen”, but the devil is a liar.  Don’t lose your sense of expectancy, just because it hasn’t happened yet. I sense in my spirit that God has some surprises in store for you this month. Yes, this very month. The reward, the blessing and the promise are about to be released into your life in ways you can’t even imagine. It’s going to be sudden, unexpected and extraordinary—completely unforgettable. In fact, you need to get ready now, preparing yourself because your reward has been dispatched straight from heaven. It’s on the way.

I am literally sitting on the edge of my seat right now because the “thing” you have been waiting on, is on its way. God is about to reward you – big time.  Your haters cannot block, stop or prevent this blessing from getting to you. More importantly, you will not be affected by their drama, gossip or negativity when the blessing finally arrives. God did not consult them before releasing the blessing, so their input does not matter one way or the other.

The Bible says God is a rewarder (Hebrews 11:6). We are told, “The righteous will be rewarded in the earth” (Proverbs 11:31). Not just in heaven, but in the earth. The assertion that God is a master at rewarding us is founded on the fact that God is so full and so completely self-sufficient that He overflows. If we do not fully believe God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him, then our prayers serve very little purpose.

As Christians, we must be persuaded that God delights in giving rewards to His children. This is a truth you must believe and make your own. You must believe it and receive it in your spirit that God loves to reward His beloved. Personally, I love how God presented Himself to Abraham in the Bible. God said to Abraham that He (God) was his (Abraham’s) exceedingly great reward (Genesis 15:1). God Himself is His people’s reward! No doubt Abraham considered it a prize to become the father of many nations, but God said there was something even greater—the glory coming down in the Person of the Father to minister favor to His beloved.

Receiving a reward is a wonderful experience. It offers recognition for something attained or accomplished. What is even more significant is the source of the reward. Can you imagine what it is like to receive a reward from the Creator of all things! That is precisely what happens for those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that seeking God results in a reward from God Himself. So seeking God must be a very special endeavor indeed for God to present a reward to the faithful. And though we don’t do it merely for the reward, we would be foolish not to seek Him.  Bottom line, when we “do” our part in seeking God, we will receive what’s “due” us.

God is a recompenser, a remunerator—that is, a God who pays well for faithfulness. When you constantly and earnestly put in concerted effort to do the will of God, He records it for posterity and rewards you greatly in due season, so get ready to receive! The best is yet to come.

Don’t Make “Change” Your Enemy

In Malachi 3:6, God says, “For I am the Lord, I change not.” Isn’t that comforting? With all the changes we face every day, there is one thing that can never change — God. The mind of God does not change, for God does not change. Things change, and they change according to His sovereign will.

Nothing is static. Society changes, culture changes and people change. Opportunities for change are all around us. And there is nothing wrong with creating the change you want to see.

Change presents us with something different. You grow and learn new things every time something changes. You discover new insights about different aspects of your life. You learn lessons even from changes that did not lead you to where you wanted to go.

Change makes you smarter. If things never changed, you’d never learn anything new. And every time you learn a new skill — even if it’s just how to adapt — you are that much smarter than you were yesterday.

Change can be extremely powerful if you allow it. It means you are not stuck. You are moveable; in motion. You are even given an opportunity to alter the changes you make.

Change can also be a struggle because in reality you are fighting against uncertainty.  We feel overwhelmed, not knowing what the future holds. We feel overwhelmed, not up to the challenges of accommodating to change.  Whether we hated the status quo or loved it, whether we were comfortable with it or not, change makes us leave behind that which we have known.  We resent having to adjust to anything different than what we are comfortable with. We cry, “Why can’t we just stay the way we were?” “We can’t do that–we’ve never done it that way before.” “Maybe we’re not up to it; maybe we can’t handle it.” We reflect all of these feelings in the ways we react to change.

Sometimes we are resistant to change and we’re not even sure why. Or maybe we try to mitigate change by manipulating everyone and everything in our path. By over-organizing, micro-managing, making swift decisions or by being just plain controlling, believing that if I can direct what will happen and when, I can control the change. And if that doesn’t work, I can always turn around and blame someone else for the changes that did occur. This is an illusion. We can neither block change nor control it all of the time. For change will come, whether we want it to or not, and it is often more powerful than we are.

Change can become your greatest teacher, but only if you give yourself permission to learn from it. Instead of resisting, allow change to unfold and try to understand what’s happening and why. When we can accept change, learn from it, and become all the better for experiencing it, change is no longer our enemy. It becomes our teacher and our friend.

When you have a godly mindset you can handle change with a positive attitude. You easily adapt to new situations, new environments, and new people, when you know God is in control even if you aren’t. As a result you will not freak out or become weary when something unexpectedly shifts. You can take comfort in Jesus knowing that a God-change always triggers progress and success.

So rather than making change your enemy, adjust to the changes that come, and let God use them to lead you into your destiny.

Are You the Lone Ranger or Tonto?

Recently, I watched an old episode of “The Lone Ranger.” I invited my eighteen-year-old son to join me. Of course, he responded, “Why?”  I explained, “Son, this is a great opportunity to show you how Jesus wants Christians to work in ministry.”  (For those of you who don’t know me, I try to use every opportunity as a teaching moment.)  My son replied, “Jesus is like the Lone Ranger?” I smiled and said, “He’s not, but His works are.”

Like my son, you may be wondering what Jesus has to do with the Lone Ranger. For those of you who can recall, the saga of the Lone Ranger involves a masked man riding the range astride his powerful stallion, Silver. During each episode he sought to bring evil men with evil plans to justice in the Wild West.

And though he seemed to be a one-man show, in his fight for justice, it quickly became apparent that he could not overcome his enemies without the help of someone else. What many people tend to forget is that the Lone Ranger had a friend who helped him out of many tricky situations. His name was Tonto–the Native American who would always come to his rescue just in the nick of time in the end. The Lone Ranger could never have successfully completed his mission without Tonto.

No matter how many times Tonto rescued the Lone Ranger in his hour of need, he never became the headliner. Instead he gladly played the role of the supporting actor, which brings me to my point.

Many Christians want to be “The Lone Ranger” in the church today. They want to be the one-man band–the Lone Ranger in the choir, in ministry, in leadership, and the list goes on, because they feel as if they are the only anointed ones through whom God can work. But this is a complete misunderstanding of the character of God. According to Scripture God is no respecter of persons, which means He isn’t into one-man shows. Instead He wants to use us working in sync with one another, together using our gifts to bring Him alone glory.

Could it be that some people who are Lone Rangers in the ministry are insecure, and are at times suspicious of other peoples’ motives? Or, is it that they are afraid someone might do it better than they can? Or could it be they want control for selfish reasons? Or could it be they want all of the credit and accolades—the glory for themselves. Lord, deliver your people from such attitudes.

What many people tend to forget is that the Lone Ranger had a friend who had his back. And just like the Lone Ranger needed Tonto, you need somebody. The Bible says that Jesus sent them out two by two. Why? They were to be witnesses together. In addition, they were more powerful together. Take a look at the following scriptures:

“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20, NKJV)

 “And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.” (Mark 6:7)

 “This will be the third time I am coming to you. By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.”  (2 Corinthians 13:1)

Jesus’ disciples were sent out in pairs so that together they could be witnesses as to whether those who heard them accepted or rejected the gospel. In that day, one person’s word without a witness was not acceptable when it came to the things of God. Even today, the word of a single person is not enough to establish the validity of anything.

Jesus wants us to work together in ministry, just like the Lone Ranger and Tonto. For where would the Lone Ranger be without Tonto, or Fred be without Barney, or Shirley be without Laverne, or Moses be without Joshua, or Elijah be without Elisha, or Paul without Timothy?

Stop trying to be a Lone Ranger. Teamwork in Jesus is the key to success.

You Have No Idea

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She had no idea that her decision would change the course of history. Thomas Edison never thought of himself as innovative. He was just a hard-working man who had no idea that playing with wires in his workshop would one day make possible the development of electricity. Martin Luther King had no idea that one day his name would be respected around the world as a human rights icon. Similarly, you have no idea what God can do through you if you don’t work the gift in you.

There are so many new possibilities God wants to bring your way. Are you willing to imagine the possibilities? If not, nothing will happen. I’ve learned that when God inspires and stretches your imagination, you begin to think bigger than you’ve ever thought before. You begin to enlarge your ability to believe God for the impossible. So what if the bank denied the loan? So what if your best friend doesn’t agree with you? So what if you don’t make enough money?  So what if the devil told you the vision would never come to pass? Here’s a sobering wakeup call:  “…but, with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

God is the source of all resources. He can do more, do better and go further than anything we can ask or think. I’m convinced that if you need something and it does not exist, it’s not an issue for God. God can create it ex nihilo. Ex nihilo means out of nothing, God can create your something and give you exactly what you need.

God, the Creator of all things visible and invisible has planted an idea in you that He wants you to pursue and bring forth. So I charge you today, to go after your dreams. It’s time for you to reach the height of your God-given potential.

You might think that you simply don’t have the raw talent, drive or determination it takes to get the job done. Maybe you think you’re not smart enough, creative enough, or attractive enough to be fruitful. So what!  I’ve been told all of my life that I have a flat nose, but I didn’t let it stop me from becoming a singer, writer, motivational speaker, mentor and a career woman to say the least. I get a kick out of autographing my book for people who talked about my nose (lol).

What’s my point? You have no idea what God can do with you, in you, and through you until you go after the idea He’s planted in you. You have no idea how you can rise, how far you can go, how much you can achieve. And again, you will never know, if you don’t step out on faith.

In honor of Black History Month, I challenge you to reach your full potential in God. You have the power to transform what was once just a dream, into a reality, and make a mark in history.
