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% 🙂
It is written in John 16:22: (KJV) “And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you”.
We live in a time now in where joy can be easily taken away . It seems like today our joy and peace are fragile, which can easily crumble. But remember, the joy of the LORD shall be your strength. Stop allowing other people or situations to take your joy. You are responsible for your joy, why let someone else rob it because their miserable? There is an old saying that goes, misery loves company. Some times people want to bring you down, because they cannot stand the sight to see someone else happy or joyful. Why dim your light? There’s nothing wrong with being compassionate for others, but discern when someone is intentionally trying to get you out of your character.
Growing in the LORD means not that you are not lead by feelings (flesh). When his presence is in you, no one or nothing can take it. Do not let the enemy to rob you out of your joy. Life can evaporate in a flash, is it truly worth it? No, put on the full armor of God and no attack shall destroy you nor prosper. You cannot buy real joy, only substitutes. The spirit of joy is rich and it has the power to illuminate the room. Let no one take your joy, there is always something to be joyful about.
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.
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.
It’s important to rejoice about the simple things that we don’t even think about, such as being alive and breathing. Human life can be as a vapor that soon disappears. Rejoice over the small things that are taken for granted. There is always someone who rather be where your at despite your desire for higher elevation in particular areas. Always remember that the best is yet to come. Rejoice! for the Lord has came to give you life more abundantly. You have everything to gain when walking with him. Do everything with gladness and joy. You are highly favored even when your emotions do not reflect it, for many are called but few are chosen. Again Rejoice!
Keep all hope alive. Even if you have every reason to believe otherwise. There will always be some form of opposition to attack everything you believe. Your test help builds your faith, character, patience and strength. Keep your mind sharp and guard your heart. Block away all of the enemy’s attacks by praying. Before you leave your house, it’s important to pray so that you can set the foundation for the rest of the day. No matter what issues may arise, you are protected through the power of prayer. It’s a covering of protection. Put on the full armor of God and remember that the best is yet to come.
