Expand Your Vision

 

china-1576318

Speak life into your vision. Speak those things as though they were. Keep saying it until you see it. God will sometimes test you to see if you still hang on to his word and promise when things are going in an opposite direction. It’s all test of your faith. The harder the test the bigger the reward. Extraordinary people go through extraordinary things. Expand your vision according to where you’re going and not by where you are. Where you are currently in life is just a prerequisite to get to where you’re going. The LORD is looking for unmovable faith. He is pleased by faith. There is something that is connected to your purpose in your everyday routine. (Even if you don’t have one or if nothing is happening). Trust God by showing him your patience and faith. He will rekindle your strength.

Water your vision with positive and supportive people. Don’t allow anyone or anything to hinder your growth that is not of the will of God. You will be able to travel new heights and new levels that most people have not seen before. There is something that he wants to reveal to you on a higher level but you must trust him. Expand your vision when you are walking on blind faith. Don’t allow your vision to be blurry but increased with clarity and sharpness. Take little leaps of faith that will make you closer to your goals. Allow your vision to expand to new heights and measures.

It is written in Habakkuk 2:2 – “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it”. It is also written in Proverbs 29:18 – “Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he”.

Hold on to your Faith: Faint Not

sunset-1402784

Hold on to your faith even when you cannot find it in anyone or anywhere else. Sometimes it may be the only thing you have to hold on to. It is written in 2 Corinthians 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight”.  It’s never about what’s happening around you, but what’s within you. The words faith and faint sound and almost look similar, but they have two different meanings. Faith means to believe while faint means to fall and to lose consciousness.

What storm has arose against you? Remember it’s not about what’s around you, but what’s within you. It is written in Matthew 8:23-27:

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

There is no need to worry about anything that is around you. As long as God is with you, You shall be protected and secure from the waves of life that tries to knock you down. Be faithful and be whole. Hold on to his power and strength that he has given you in the midst of the storm. Faint Not! 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JZXZEY4

He’s Still Going to Do it!

stock-illustration-3751722-leap-of-joy-in-the-mountains

No matter how long its been; no matter what trouble you have been through, always remember that the LORD is still going to do what he has promised. Don’t allow winds of discouragement to throw you off course. No matter how many times you have been knocked down, get back up! It is written in Proverbs 24:16: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief”.

All you need is a mustard size seed of faith. That dream will come to pass, even when you felt that you may have lost it all. Sometimes the LORD will take you through different routes to get there, but its all part of the process to become better and stronger. There will be times in where things won’t appear fair, but in due season it shall pay off. Your going to be more stronger and powerful more than you have ever been before. Psalms 22:2: “says,  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters”. Speak it into existence and write the vision to make it plain. Don’t give up on him and don’t give up on your faith, for you have come too far now. When God is planning on to bless you, no Devil in hell can stop it. Don’t faint, fall or stumble. He is going to still bless you beyond measure. Your going to come out with much more than what you came in with. Don’t be angry with him, he is still going to make it happen.

Pick up the word of God as your weapon to fight against whatever doubt or attack that may come against you. It is written in Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. Be anxious for nothing. Allow him to do things his way. No matter what you been through, he is still going to do it! Increase you power and strength by reading his word.

Burned Out?

blown-out-candles-1505000

Becoming burned out does not happen overnight but overtime. The causes of drainage can come from investing or pouring so much time and energy into people, jobs, tasks and daily routines that it becomes exhausting. It can also be a manifestation of giving your all; only not to receive any results or appreciation for your efforts. No matter how hard you try to do the right thing, it just seems that evil is always present. So what do you do when you feel like you cannot take anymore? What do you do when it feels like your best isn’t enough? What do you do when it nothing is going the way you plan nor expected? Continue reading

The Power of No

stock-photo-44766292-mountain-landscape

The word no can be bold, direct and even uncomfortable. God’s no is protection. No matter how frustrated or impatient you are, look at it as an honor. You’re so special in his sight that he will run the risk of your pain to protect you. Believe or not, some people don’t have that privilege or that form of favor. For example, he will answer yes to some people’s prayer just to show them that it’s not what they wanted or thought. Why go through any unnecessary stress, pressure, or work? He loves you so much that he doesn’t want you to experience that. Think about a child who wants too much candy. Out of love, care and responsibility, their parents will tell them no, despite how much their feelings are hurt. God is the same way. It’s better to just listen and obey the voice of the LORD no matter what his answer is at the moment. His ways are higher than our ways and his thinking is better than our ways. A closed door is better than an open door that leads to destruction. His no’s are just as important as the yes. See it as no harm or strange thing. You are favored beyond measure! ♥

Cast All Cares Upon Him!

In this day and hour, it is important to cast ALL cares upon him. 1 Peter 5:7 says “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. (That means every single thing that’s bothering you or weighing you down). You must place all of your burdens and worries on him. It can be challenging when you’re not sure how God will handle it, but in due time he will! Don’t follow your flesh, it just will create more turmoil and chaos. The problem will escalate instead of it being resolved. Can you obey his voice and follow instructions when he tells you not to move or speak? Can you lean not to your own understanding when it looks like God’s way doesn’t make sense? Trust in him and in due season he will vindicate you. It can be extremely draining and exhausting to put your cares upon something or someone else. Cast even the smallest things upon him, for he knows your needs before you pray about them. Your smallest worries matters to God. Worrying does not add to anything, it only makes things worse. Remember there’s a word for every situation you go through. Cast all cares upon him and again he will give you rest.

The Small things do Matter

 

color-full-clouds-1499701

Never despise the day of humble beginnings. Everything is a preparation for where he wants to take you. Always remember that the small things are just as important as the big things. Everything starts with a seed. The slow process may feel or seem insignificant, but they are the steps that are necessary to get to the promise. They are important pieces that will work together for the good. Before Joseph became the king of Egypt, God put him in charge over Potiphar’s house and over the prison. God was trusting him with the small things before he could rule over a nation. Can God trust you over the small things? Before he can take you to the promise, you must pass the test when it looks like everything is not working out in your favor (As matter fact, its really when everything looks worse). Follow God’s voice of instruction and he will not lead you astray. It’s the little things that turns into big things.

Again, don’t be discouraged, for the time will come when you will see how it will come together. Sometimes it will look like God is taking you backwards. He will even almost take everything away, so he can see what you would be able do with nothing (Remember Job). This is the road that builds great leaders. Your struggles are a prerequisite in order to get to where you need to be. This will not be for everybody. You must understand that some people are comfortable with just enough. Not everyone is willing to go the extra mile of progression. It would mean getting out of their comfort zones, the possibility of failure, embarrassment and becoming talked about. 

The greatest leaders have to endure those factors and more. It was the small things that they had to handle before they were entrusted with any form of responsibility and authority. For example, before David was a King he was a Shepard over sheep. Before he defeated Goliath, he defeated a Lion. God will always send you a test to prepare you for where your going. Again, can he trust you with the small things?

Misunderstood??

What a wonderful thing it is to be misunderstood. Many people see the disadvantages of being misunderstood, however it can be quite a blessing. Being misunderstood can mean that you are marked as one of God’s own. Your just meant to be different which is a special sign from God. Everything that God favors is different and unique. Everyone is not meant to understand you. This an advantage so that you can know who you are in his likeness and greatness. If he has marked you as his, prepare to go through persecution. Marvel not if the world hates you. Although there are challenges of being misunderstood, it draws you closer to God. Being misunderstood can also mean that you are set a part and that you are in another league of your own. If you spend your time on this earth trying to be understood and accepted by everyone, then you will spend the rest of your life chasing their acceptance. You cannot please everybody. Every biblical character was misunderstood in some way as well as JESUS. He will provide you with his strength, wisdom, power, knowledge and understanding.

It is written in Exodus 31:3: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

He Will Make A Way Out of No Way!

stock-photo-51226536-forest-road-sunset-sunbeams

Just as he made a way for the children of Israel, so shall he make it for you. God never goes back on his word. His promises are true. His plans are mysterious and his strategies are beyond human comprehension. No one can truly figure out God. There is nothing predictable about him. He blesses us in different ways. You may be looking for him to do something he did before, when he is going to bless you in another way. He shall do a new thing in you. Everything that crashed and burned shall be restored. It may have been impossible with man, but with God all things shall be possible. Every fail attempt will become a story that is a part of your success. Remember that God is going to do everything he has said he’s going to do. You may not have receive what you wanted during the time you expected, but he will always come on time. No matter how impossible things may seem, feel or look, remember that he shall make a way out of no way. He shall multiply and expand what little offering that you have left.


It is written in 1 Kings 17:12-16 that:

And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.

 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.

 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.
