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.
God hears your pain, heart and prayers but he responds to faith. There are some journeys and transitions that hes going to take you to be a better person. It won’t kill you it will just build you. Follow him and allow him to be your guide to light. Its just temporary what your facing. Cheer up for trouble does not last always. Hes calling you higher and higher. Words will always be a non factor when it comes to who you are or how far you will go. The favor of God is upon you. Continue to seek him and watch him fulfill your every need. Watch him move.
Devote commit and submit yourself unto him. There is a reason for everything and God’s word is true and pure. Allow it to be your guide to your everyday living and choices.
Dont fret about time, he has all power, authority and dominion over time. Is anything impossible for him. No there isn’t. Stop doubting yourself and trust into God. Allow nothing to become a distraction. Focus on what important and God has instore. Be faithful according to his word. There is nothing that will not come to pass. Its more than a thought or dream. Its destiny. You’re special and have been set apart. You have been picked selected and hand chosen by the king. Your too big to be reduce down to a lower level. You are beyond and greater than any negative, weak, insecure and intimidated words of another person. You are one of a kind and the standard is higher for you for a reason. Your class, character, and style requires more and the best of everything.
Your on a higher scale. Follow the commandments and he will give you all the desires of your heart. Change your mind, change your pattern, change your life. He will guide you to all truth, wisdom and knowledge. Do not allow fear to conquer faith. He is the ultimate comforter. Do not be discouraged.
Who are you? It’s a question that people ask even until the end of their lives. It’s not a question that can be easily answered despite the life experiences that one must go through and endure. It’s not answered by popularity, your past, riches, nor flattery. It’s not something you can seek from the pleasures of this world, which will surely fade and give you unrest. The pleasures of this world will deteriorate your soul as a moth destroys clothes. You can have everything going on from the outside and still feel absolutely empty on the inside. You can look like you have the perfect peace, but your spirit may be broken into pieces. Everything is not what it appears or seem. Your worth cannot be defined through material things and other people’s affirmation. You have to find who you are and not through the words of other people. You are who God says you are. Once you know the truth, it shall set you free. Please know your worth and who you are. Do not compromise your dignity, value, honor, respect and integrity. Only God can give you the answer if you seek him above all else.
It is written in Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
As so it was with Moses, the Lord will guide your footsteps and directions all of the days of your life. He has the answers to the question, Who are you? No one else has the key to unlock that answer.
It is written in 2 Corinthians 12:19 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
We don’t deserve his grace or mercy yet, he still gives us another chance to get back up. There are times when we feel unworthy or even inadequate when walking in his calling. We look at all the reasons why we can’t. Allow God to lead each step of the way even when you must demonstrate the blind faith of Abraham.
Stop thinking about how you may not have the qualifications, experience, time, money and resources to do his will. He will always provide a way out of no way. Remember that you have everything you need, just allow him to guide the way. It is written in Proverbs 24:16, For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again. No matter what sins you have committed in the past, present, and future, please know that his grace is sufficient.
There is no sin that is too great that can separate you from his love. (Although we should not take his grace for granted, because there is time when grace runs out) It is written in Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
When God has place a special calling upon your life and when he has blessed you with the crown of favor, can you handle the opposition that will come with it? With every opportunity comes with opposition. There are challenges that comes with being chosen. Some people will do anything to tear you down. (Sometimes even the people closest to you, take Joseph for example) It is an indication that God has selected and hand-picked you as his own. It is an honor from God. Hate, envy, and bitterness are spiritual cancers that has the power destroy blessings. Are you strong enough to deal with the conflict and challenges of being hated for no reason? Are you able to brush off the dust of betrayal, rejection, lies and deceit? It takes the spirit, strength & wisdom of God to stand in the midst of the battle that’s not yours. Everything does not deserve your attention, time and energy. Do not give them any power. You are on another level. When the hand of God is upon your life, a response is not necessary. It will all be taken care of in due time. Real discipline is not giving into your feelings. Allow God to be your vindicator over ALL situations. He will show you what to do in the midst of pressure. Trust in him who will never fail or forsake you. Through trails and persecutions, he shall always be there even until the end of time.
It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality. The number of an item may not equal or measure up to the richness of quality. Quality takes more time to produce. Sometimes quality may be more expensive. For example, a store may have a sale on t-shirts that’s 5 for $20. (Which is a good deal) Although the sale is a great deal, the quality of the material may easily diminish. Another shirt in the store may cost more money for only just one however; the thread will last longer and the material will stay in tact. You don’t have to purchase extra t-shirts because you have quality material that will last (Not to mention that it can be more expensive to purchase an quantity of material, because the material does not last)
Are you investing into more quality in your life? One good friend is better than 10 people who are not truly your friend. A great spouse is better than multiple relationship partners who have no substance but provide only emptiness at the end. Quantity does not compare to the value of quality.
Do not compromise or settle for less in any area of life. God does everything with excellence, order, decency and quality. Allow him to make quality decisions and choices in your life that’s filled with his spirit of wisdom. God’s vision for your life is HD. Remember quality over quantity.
A part of becoming a great leader is to have control of your emotions. Do you master your emotions? Whatever you don’t have control of is what will control you. Do not allow your emotions to dictate your actions , behavior, or words. Mastering your emotions is a skill of controlling your flesh. Mastering your emotions also takes discipline. It takes time and practice. Following your emotions and heart will lead you astray. It can cause you to make the wrong decisions. Emotions can blind you from the truth as well as from wisdom. It is written in Proverbs 3:5 to Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Follow the voice of the Lord who will not lead you astray. Do not put things into your own hand. Allow God to handle everything his way, his time and on his terms.
Your hard work and devotion will not be wasted. Continue to strive for what you believe in. You shall have whatever you say. Speak it in existence for the power of life and death are in the tongue. Speak life over your dreams, plans, goals and inspirations. Remember God is not a man that shall lie. Neither has he forgotten about you. Don’t over calculate and analyze things, allow God to have full total control in directing your pathway. The road to righteousness is narrow, so is the road to success. Not too many people are willing to go through with the threat of failure and the pot holes in the road towards success. God timing is perfect. More precise than any man on this earth. Waiting is the most important part of the process. God will never put more on you than you can bear. Have you ever thought that maybe some things haven’t come to pass yet because you’re not ready. (Although we always think we are) We should appreciate these moments of waiting because it builds our strength, faith, and preparation. When the time comes for your season to arrive, you shall be ready. Whatever God has spoken, so shall it be. It shall come to pass.
