Walking a narrow path isn’t easy. It also comes with much obedience, sacrifice, discipline and commitment. When walking this path, it is important to stay focus and faithful even until the end. When you are walking on a narrow path don’t fall into any traps of deception by thinking you’re missing out on something. Allow God to keep you in perfect peace. Keep your thoughts on him. Don’t waste the years of your life by conforming. That’s time and energy that you can’t get back.
The lie that the enemy will try to display is that your missing out on the “fun” (the pleasures of sin). Please don’t believe the lie and the mindset that everyone’s doing it. That is deception. Don’t fall for the bait or trap. Guard your heart and affections. God’s protection is a blessing and it will save you from so much unnecessary trouble. Put on the full armor of God. He will preserve you. He will do whatever he can to protect his best. It’s an honor to be on God’s mind so much, that he’s not willing to allow you to go through that path of destruction. It will always appear as rejection, but it’s really protection so you can truly receive his best in any area of your life. Romans 8:25: says “But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it”. Always remember that the best is yet to come. ♥
Please don’t get weary and bow. Stay out of danger. Someone is counting on you to be different. Hebrews 11:25 mentions that the pleasures of sin are for a season. Stay true to who he called you to be. Despite the pressures of reality, your obedience, devotion, sacrifice and commitment will pay off. The enemy will make a lie appear as the truth. You’re not missing out on anything that you “must” have. Allow God to build your patience so when you finally receive, your foundation will be stronger. Your time is coming 🙂

Always put in your best and nothing less. Whether it’s your craft, gift or job; put in your best work. Allow nothing to go to waste. Although we are not perfect, it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t strive for perfection. If we are putting in our best in other areas such as our careers, school or fitness life, then we should always put in our best with our spiritual life. That is the foundation of who we are. Giving him the highest honor of how we live, is part of putting in our best effort. It is written in Numbers 18:29 (KJV): that “Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of the LORD, of all the best thereof”. When we give the LORD all that we have which includes our heart, mind, body and soul, we are giving him our best. Put your all into everything you do even when it looks like your fallen. Our job is to not perfect ourselves through our own natural strength, but through JESUS. Give him the glory in everything you do, our strengths and gifts are not for us, but for him. Focus on being the best you can be and leave the rest up to him. Nothing less than 100% 🙂
His words are richer than gold and sweeter than honey. This new year shall be a year of difference. He is preparing you for a higher place. Follow the ways of the Lord and not a path of distractions or destruction. Truly focus on what the Lord is saying. There will always be something or someone who tries to distract us from his purpose for our lives. Focus on what matters.
Your attention is too valuable to spend on nonsense.
When entering into this new year, only focus on his will. discard any distractions that are a hindrance to your assignment. Focus on building a stronger and intimate relationship with him. We do not have the luxury of time to dwell on what everyone else is doing nor the current trends or what’s popular. Our minds should be so wrapped into him, that nothing else matters. Remove all distractions and watch him show up in your life with his presence like never before. The best is yet to come. Open your heart, mind, and soul and receive him today.
No one can earn salvation with good works. Our righteousness is as filthy rags compared to his holiness. No matter how many mistakes or pitfalls you stumble on, always get back up.
Proverbs 24:16 says that, For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again.
Do not fall into the trap of self pity. It prohibits and blocks what God wants you to receive. God does not love you any less because of your falls. Your value did not go down. You are a vessel that he can use. Everything is a process, so allow patience to fill your heart, so that he may have his way. Run your race, there’s no time stop. Continue to get back up. Go and sin no more!

Your mind is one of the most precious creations from God. It’s important to know what to feed it, just like your spirit.
Don’t lose your mind neither fill it with depression. Keep your mind focus on God’s word of truth and not lies. Fill your mind with peace. Surround yourself with positive things and people. Take things one step at a time, for everything is a process. Enjoy the simple things such as the sun, rain, leaves and air. Sometimes it’s good to turn off the T.V and to remove yourself from distractions. The word of the Lord is the only thing that will sustain your mind, heart, soul and spirit. Allow him to keep you in perfect peace when everything is fallen apart. Peace is priceless and it cannot be brought. Do not allow the world and your personal circumstances to wither away your peace, for it God took you through something, he has to bring you out. There is a purpose for everything, which shall be used for his glory.
It is written in John 14:27, that Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
The hour to call upon him is now. You cannot wait for the perfect conditions. If there was ever a time to hearken and obey his voice, the time is now. There were so many times I made excuses on why I wasn’t fully ready. Although I heard his voice, I wanted to still hold on to some of my sin. I wasn’t fully committed. But God said in this hour that you have to let go of everything for me. You cannot give him half but all. You cannot be lukewarm and fickle in this hour. Do not allow excuses to hinder your future and most of all, your relationship with God. Now is the time to hear his voice and follow his instructions. His sheep knows his voice, for he shall direct you on a narrow path. He is God and there is no man that shall share his glory. Don’t hardened your heart for in this time you should work while it’s day, for at night no man shall work. He is calling you for a higher purpose that man cannot even explain. That’s how powerful and precious the call is upon your life. No longer can you become comfortable with no progression. No longer will years fly by and your still in the same predicament. Repent and bow before him. The kingdom of heaven is near. Jesus is the only way, life and truth. He is worthy to be praise! Worship him in all spirit and truth. He’s been waiting on you, the time is now.

Never forget about God in all the days of your life. Young, old, rich or poor. Don’t allow pride to blind and deceive you from taking God’s wisdom instead of your own. You need God to absolutely take your next breath, heart beat, move and step. No matter what blessing may fall upon your life, you will still need him. He gives you your health, strength, joy, sanity and peace of mind for everyday life. Even if God gives you everything you want, sometimes he will give it to you to show that you still need him. You can have everything in this world but it will not mean anything without God. It will appear that you will have everything on the outside while empty on the inside. There will come a time in where your money cannot fix everything and it will become meaningless. Money and material things cannot fill void. Don’t gain the world in exchange for your soul and identity. You cannot escape God’s love. Return to him and give him your all. Never forget, for he is the Alpha and Omega of the universe. He is God. Heaven and earth shall fade but his word is forever.
