It is written in Galatians 5:1: “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”. The word entangled means to be caught up or twisted in circumstances that are difficult to escape. When a spider trap it’s prey, it is entangled in a web waiting to be devoured. We must not be deceived or controlled by anything or anyone.
Whatever control us is what owns us. We can be entangled in something and not know it or be in denial. The Lord will always provide a way of escape out of your bondage. Do not follow the lust of the flesh. This can apply to any unclean area of our lives.
Galatians 5:16: says “This I say then, walk in the spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh”. Becoming untangled takes work and just like with anything it’s a process. Whatever you don’t rid of will get rid of you. Whatever you don’t deal with now will always come back later. The Lord will provide a way out. Sometimes you must go through what you have to. The process will be messy, but it will be all for his glory.
He will always give you ashes for beauty. Do not be entangled. His power is much greater than your circumstance and weaknesses. He has the power to make you free from anything that is holding you back. Cling on to his word. Sometimes we can hold our own selves internally back due to our past or present experiences.
It is written in Matthew 11:28: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. Let go of all your heavy burdens and cast all cares upon him. Allow him to remove any chains and strongholds that may have you entangled. He’s waiting 🙂
What has your experiences in life taught you? Mistakes along the way will occur and happen, but what’s important is that we learn from them. It is foolish to go through particular situations, but become blinded on the message that God wants you see. We cannot repeat the same thing and receive different results. What benefit does it serve you to repeat the same thing over and over. We dishonor ourselves, we waste time and we sadden our spirit. If God has deliver you from something, why return back? Get out of the mud. Allow him to cleanse you with his holy power.
It is written in Proverbs 26:11: “As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly”.
Experience can come with wisdom. His wisdom is a gift to avoid certain potholes in the road. There are some things that you don’t have to go through if you have his wisdom. Again do not become blind in the very thing he wants you to get and receive. Learning from your mistakes allows you to move on to the next level in where he wants to take you. Transformed and renew your mind and allow him to create in you a clean heart.
Your smile has the power to light up someone’s day. There is always something to smile about.There are so many people who would love to be in your position who do no have the access to the basic needs, employment and etc. You should take nothing for granted. God has given you another chance to exalt his kingdom. Let there be a glow on you that others desire to have. Why dim your light in the midst of of a dark atmosphere? Somebody needs your smile, someone needs your energy. Become inspiration to others in how you live. Allow your joy to be contagious upon other people. Always remember to smile each day 🙂
Is there anything that is taking God’s first place in your life? Remove every Idol in your life. Idols come in many forms and not just in graven images. Did you know that you can make yourself into an Idol by serving you? If we want God to bless us, we must be faithful servants. That means getting rid of whatever that’s taking first place in our lives besides him. We cannot serve two masters. We will either serve one or the other. It is written in
Matthew 6:14: that “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”.
Keep God first place in your life. Do not be hesitant or stubborn to get rid of that thing in your life that’s hindering your from God’s blessing. Cast them away and make room for God to be #1 in your life. He’s waiting 🙂
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD. Progress takes time. Everything is a process. Everything has a particular time and setting. Whenever you are in a process there are steps and transitions to getting where you want to be. Real change does not happen overnight or within 24 hours. Begin with small changes. If you can not walk in the steps, then crawl if you have to. (Remember everything is a process). After crawling, you may fall while your walking, but continue to get back up. Believe or not falling is a part of the process. When you are able to stand and walk, then you can jog. After jogging you will be able to finally run.
Real change is not smooth, but sometimes uncomfortable. Your pathway was designed for you to not only overcome, but to strive as the winner you are. Remove the negative thoughts and all forms of hindrance that’s fighting your progress to change. Everything including dreams, accomplishments, dating and etc. begins with a step. Take things one step at a time, real change is not overnight. It is written in Proverbs 4:12: “When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble“.
Division means separate. There is a spirit of division that is splitting people apart. The events that are occurring in today’s time is nothing new. In this time and age, it seems that there is nothing that appears to be shocking anymore, for the Bible says that there nothing new under sun. Whatever is occurring now has already happened before.
It’s important that we should not get caught up in doing the wrong thing for the right reasons. Obedience is greater than sacrifice. Two are greater than one. A group of people that’s divided and who cannot work together shall fall. While the enemy army is growing, the body of Christ is somewhat divided. It’s important to get back focus on the target and really matters. Put away your pride, titles and status.
The only division that the body of Christ should have, is the division of holiness. When people see you, they should know that you are different. As far as the world goes, the earth is still in God’s hands despite the pain, sorrow and suffering that happening. Allow God to sustain you with his peace of mind.
Allow him to take care and handle your battles, for it says in Luke 12:51: “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division”. There will be a division between the clean and the unclean and the wheat and tares. Stand strong and take your up your cross if you have to. This is a time to allow him to use you the most. Let your light shine in the midst of the darkest moments. You are an inspiration to so many others, who haven’t even met you yet.
No matter how many times you fall, it’s important to get back up. As long as you have breath in your body, it is never too late. Be encouraged. No matter how old, young or how many mistakes you have made, please get up and try again. He’s waiting to accept you in his arms. Don’t allow your faults to be bigger than God.
If you have to start over, start over. Strive for the best in every thing you do. It’s never too late to dedicate your life to him. He is a faithful God of second chances. Do not allow guilt, condemnation and conviction to stop you from running into his arms. Whatever your goal or dream is, it’s never too late. He will restore whatever you lost. Do not throw in the towel for the best is yet to come. #Morning Inspiration #Itsnevertoolate
The definition of faithful means true, devoted and loyal. When we think of the terms of cheating, we automatically think about someone who’s not playing fair or someone who is dishonest. When someone is in a relationship and an individual decides to step outside of their commitment by cheating with another person, that individual was not loyal. If married, the individual has committed infidelity.
Think about your relationship with God. Have you been faithful and loyal to him? Our relationship with God is like a marriage and we must honor his vows by following his commandments, statues and law, even when we feel that we are unable to at times (due to our flesh). He will teach you to not follow your flesh.
How can we cheat on God? by committing our time to something or someone else. A relationship not only takes commitment, but time. We can also have false Gods or unknown idols in our life. We can also just simply not obey him. If we do not put him first and love him with all our heart, mind, body and soul, then we are spiritually cheating.
If you are faithful over the small things, then he will reward you to handle the big things. Every big step begins with something small, so it is important on how we deal with the little responsibilities in life. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, so it is vital to be faithful to the LORD even behind close doors. He has said in Matthew 6:18: “Pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly”.
What you do in secret matters and will determine how far you can go publicly. Water your relationship with God. Put him first above all things, spend more quality time with him and seek his face. Truly love him and he will take you places in where you only imagine. There is no limits to God. Don’t become a spiritual cheater. He is more than worthy.
All of the great men and women in the bible were tired at some point while on their assignment. Job, Joseph, Jonah, Moses, David, Mary and even Jesus (his flesh) became tired. There reaches a time and point in our lives in when we feel like giving up or throwing in the towel. Sometimes it feels like we have more working against us, then what’s working for us. Always remember that there are no good reasons, just excuses. Everything has already been planned and prepared for you before the foundations of the world. It is written in Proverbs 8:12: “I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was”.
You were not set up to fail. You are destined for greater. You were born a winner. Winners get tired, but they do not give up. They keep running their race until they get to the finish line. It’s not how you start, but it’s how you finish. Do not get weary of well doing. Don’t canceled out everything that you have worked so hard for, for better is coming. Better is on the way. The best is always yet to come. The rain will pour, but the sun will come out.
Galatians 6:9: says, And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new“.
You can break the cycle and the generational curse. Repeating the same cycle is like running into a brick wall. Repeating a cycle is also like driving on a dead end road that leads to nowhere. There is a reason why God has called you for such a time as this. You were called for a higher purpose. You are different for a reason. What’s in your family or surroundings will not be passed on to you. The cycle ends with you. Being different and chosen comes with it’s own sets of difficulties and challenges,but he is there every step of the way. The reward will be much more greater than the struggle.
Obedience is greater than sacrifice. It’s better to suffer for righteousness than from evil. Take things one step at a time, everything is a process. He has call you to break the cycle. You are the Abraham, Joseph and Moses of your family. You are chosen. The enemy plans and traps shall not prosper or prevail. You are not what they say you are. Be different with a fresh newness, glow and energy. He can break every chain, soul tie, and strong hold. Give him all your burdens. There is a reason why he picked you. He has called you to break the cycle.
