Don’t allow the guilt of your past or present to stop you from becoming all that the LORD wants you to be. Don’t allow regret, shame and sorrow to drain or hinder you from completing the will of God. He shall uplift, restore and vindicate you. No matter how great your sin or iniquity is, it is not greater than him. Repent and move forward. Dust off your shoulders and feet and keep it moving! Start over. As long as your breathing you still have a chance to get it right. You still have another opportunity to start fresh. There is no need to dwell on choices and decisions that you cannot change. No matter how unworthy we are, we should never give up on trying to get it right. We should not follow our flesh of how we “feel”. We should follow the spirit. The flesh will constantly remind us on how guilty and unworthy we are, but the holy spirit will say “I will use all of your shortcomings for my glory”. There is purpose in your pain. The enemy wants his voice to be louder than your creator. Remember he is the father of lies. That’s why its important to focus on God’s voice, despite what we may think of ourselves.
Be healed, whole and happy. Allow him to renew your mind and spirit. Allow him to reinvent and spark up your passion again. Allow him to pull and drive you to the road of purpose. The best is still yet to come. In order to help others, you must help your self. No one deserves his goodness, mercy and grace. No one can fully earn it. Take full advantage of his free gift of eternal life and walk towards the road of repentance; no matter how many times you messed up! Keep trying and going for you will overcome. Never stop trying my friend. In order to be effective to others, you must forgive yourself. Forgive and love yourself despite your shortcomings and impurities. Allow him to still use you as a vessel for his purpose. You are not alone. Watch him change you. No process is overnight, but he is there with you step by step.
Take time to heal from the pain, wounds and damage that you may have inflicted upon yourself, for you are still precious in his sight. 🌹🌷🌼🌻 Again do not drown in your sorrows or disappointments. The LORD is the safety float that can protect you from drowning. Allow him to build you back up and replenish your strength. #keepgoing #nopityparties #itsnevertoolate.
It is written in Micah 7:19 “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea”.

Keep it all together when everything is fallen apart. This is a test of how much courage, strength, growth and wisdom that you have gained along the way. There will be things that will come from all corners and directions that will attack you. (Sometimes out of no where). It is written in Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Behind every negative force of energy and attack is something that is spiritual. Even when you have every reason to quit or give up, remain standing. Do not give anyone or anything your power. You are much stronger than you think you are, especially with God’s strength. Don’t fall apart. Keep your mind together, for you are more than a conqueror. Pass the test during the trial. Everything happens for a reason. When it’s all over, you will be standing victorious. The blessings will outweigh the pain, stress, rejection, loneliness, frustration and anger. Always go to your secret place and allow him to guard and protect you. There is greater and more on the way for you! Allow God to be the band that holds you together. Don’t collapse.

The definition of consecration can be described as to make or declare sacred. It’s important not to give into the desires of your flesh. You are to be made holy and separate. Give him all of you and your everything. Your blessing is in your submission to him. The flesh will always have a mind of its own. That’s why its important to control your flesh, so that it won’t control you. He will show how to control your mind as well as the words that flow out of your belly. In order to go further, there are some things that we must surrender to him. This will separate the wheat and tares. It is written in Matthew 13:30; (KJV) says: “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn”.
For Lord has also spoken in Matthew 5:29: “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell”. Exercise faith, endurance, patience and discipline in the areas in where you fall short. You are never alone, for the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.
Consecrate your flesh and watch your him elevate you. He shall take you to heights you have never seen. Watch him reveal little by little of himself to you in your walk. His words of well done will be worth the struggle which will blossom into joy.
A trophy is something that looks good for display. It is also an item that is given as a reward. The problem with being a trophy is that it is only for decoration. A trophy does not define the value of a person’s hard work. When serving the LORD, do not just become someone who only “looks” good. If we do not fully serve him with our all, then we are just a trophy for the wrong team. There is so much more to who we are then just outer presentation. Trophies normally sit on shelves and collects dust. Are you doing everything to please God or just only on the outer surface?
Allow God to use you. He has design you with purpose, substance and favor. Do not diminish your value or settle by being a trophy. If the same principle applies in a relationship with people, so it is with God. When you become a trophy for display, then the enemy has the power to brag off of you. You are a trophy for him.
God bragged on his servant job. It is written in Job 1:8: “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” Can God brag on you through the trials and tribulations of your situation? If so, you shall receive tenfold for he is the ultimate restorer. When you play on God’s team you cannot lose. If you are faithful even until the end of time, he shall reward you with a crown of life.
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.
Tear down the old, make room for the new. Any shaky foundation must go. If we hold on to something long enough, it will fade and eventually fall apart. This year, God wants you to make room for the new. There are some things and people that you have outgrown. Get rid of anything that’s deteriorating you instead of elevating you. Take the weight off your shoulders and cast your cares upon him. God wants to make room for the new in your life. He wants to expand your territory, but you must be willing to go through the process of reconstruction (transformation). There are some things in you that must be rebuild. There are some old ways, thinking and strong holds that must be given to him, in order to go to the next level. We are our greatest enemies if we are resistant to change. Allow God to create in you a new heart, spirit and mind. Tear down the old, make room for the new. Not my will, but thy will be done.
You are who you think you are. The bible says as so a man thinketh, so is he. If you think you are going to make it, you will. If you think the opposite, then so shall it be. You will always go in the direction of your thinking. What thoughts and seeds are you planting in your mind? In order to move forward, some of us need a new mindset if we are going to the next level. Without a new mind, we are not able to receive the things that God has in store for us. Our thinking is so important that it determines how far we can go in life. Excuses and justifications are hindrance to the soul. They are limitations placed upon you. Remove all of the heavy armor, weights and burdens off of your thinking. Not only will you feel better, but you will live better. Think about the process when you are getting a room in your house renovated. The old material must go in order to make room for the new. The same applies to your thinking. You must make room for the new. The old thinking must go. The only thing thats holding some people back is their mindset. Renovate your thinking so you are able to go further in God. With God there is nothing that will hold you back. Renew mind, vision and life.
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.
