2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new“.
You can break the cycle and the generational curse. Repeating the same cycle is like running into a brick wall. Repeating a cycle is also like driving on a dead end road that leads to nowhere. There is a reason why God has called you for such a time as this. You were called for a higher purpose. You are different for a reason. What’s in your family or surroundings will not be passed on to you. The cycle ends with you. Being different and chosen comes with it’s own sets of difficulties and challenges,but he is there every step of the way. The reward will be much more greater than the struggle.
Obedience is greater than sacrifice. It’s better to suffer for righteousness than from evil. Take things one step at a time, everything is a process. He has call you to break the cycle. You are the Abraham, Joseph and Moses of your family. You are chosen. The enemy plans and traps shall not prosper or prevail. You are not what they say you are. Be different with a fresh newness, glow and energy. He can break every chain, soul tie, and strong hold. Give him all your burdens. There is a reason why he picked you. He has called you to break the cycle.
Are you committing your all or are you giving him just some of you? When serving God, there is no border line or in between. It’s either all or nothing. There is also no such thing as lukewarm. Most people like their beverages either hot or cold. So if people do not even like lukewarm food or beverages, how can God be O.K. with lukewarm? It is written in Revelation 3:15-16: (KJV) “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth”.
I must admit that there was a point in where I was lukewarm. I believed and I had faith, but I did not surrender my all. I gave him pieces but not all. I write this post today to say, Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. Do not become a part time/convenient servant. God wants bold, obedient and strong servants that will serve him with their all and more.
What a title. It is written in Romans 7:22 (KJV): “I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me”. A choice of righteousness and evil is always set before us. Even when we do the right thing, evil is always present. It does not take discipline, strength or control to do the wrong thing. Obeying him takes courage and power. Do not allow the temptations of this world to overcome you. Do not partake in the very things that is at work to destroy your soul. Trials are there to build you and not kill you. No matter how anointed, gifted or talented you are, there will always be some form of temptation. It does not go away just because of who you are and where your going in life. We cannot fight temptation through the flesh. Matthew 26:41: says “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak”. Our instructions is to watch & pray. We must also put on the full armor of God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
No temptation is undefeatable. Remember, 1 Corinthians 10:13: says “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”.
There is no piece of fragile satisfaction that is worth it. Again, endure until the very end and he shall reward you with a crown of life. He has given you everything you need in order to overcome the world for he has overcame it first.
