Are you committing your all or are you giving him just some of you? When serving God, there is no border line or in between. It’s either all or nothing. There is also no such thing as lukewarm. Most people like their beverages either hot or cold. So if people do not even like lukewarm food or beverages, how can God be O.K. with lukewarm? It is written in Revelation 3:15-16: (KJV) “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth”.
I must admit that there was a point in where I was lukewarm. I believed and I had faith, but I did not surrender my all. I gave him pieces but not all. I write this post today to say, Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. Do not become a part time/convenient servant. God wants bold, obedient and strong servants that will serve him with their all and more.
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!

The voice of the Lord says, you are not your past. You are not what everyone says about you nor are you the status quo. You have been chosen, for you didn’t pick him, he picked you. Be new and different. Don’t conform to this world, for you are a light in a dark place. Don’t lose your salt or flavor. You are set apart. Lift up thy voice and praise him. Worship him and honor him, for he shall do a new thing in you! Glory be the King for he shall live forever and ever.
You have to know who you are and who God called you to be. It’s so easy to get entangled up in a mess that we cannot get ourselves out of. It’s also simple to lose who you are in this world. If we are constantly seeking attention in the wrong places and areas, then we will have a false sense of satisfaction and security. Be who you are. Live in the authenticity of who he created you to be. Do not waste the greatness of what God has deposit into you. Seek God first and always put on the full armor of God. Everything that’s popular does not always have power. Don’t be a counterfeit or imitation of another person. Make everything you do pleasing in his sight. Don’t live a life of deceit but instead a life of holiness. Remove your mask. The funny thing about masks is they are uncomfortable. A person can only wear a mask for so long, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. (It will eventually come off) Lay your all down before God and he shall cover and shower you with his blessings. He shall protect you through the storms and the rocky waves of life for he is God and God alone!
When waking up this morning, please remember that every day is a gift. You might not be in a place in your life that you preferred to be in however, today is a new day. With new days comes new mercies. Every day is a chance and opportunity to grow and learn something new. What are you going to do differently in the next 24 hours that will impact and change your life for the better. (Even if they are baby steps) Tomorrow is never promised. Please use this new day to grow closer to the Lord. Every day is a gift. Don’t waste it :).

God has the key to all doors and opportunities. There is no need to seek out anything else. He has already given you a set date and time of your arrival. No man can stop God’s timing and clock upon your life of what he has in store. Be diligent, patient and most of all faithful. Most people have no idea of how special and great they are in the eyes of the Lord. Every experience, failure, rejection and pain will pay off. It will be used for your good. What’s working against you is something that will work for you down the road. God is strategic. His plans are so strategic that it’s beyond human comprehension and understanding. Who can fully know God? His ways are different from our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Continue to seek out the Lord with all your heart, mind, body and soul. Remember there is nothing that he cannot do, for there nothing that is impossible with him. Your gift will make room for you. He will put you in the right place at the right time for everything that God does is strategic. #FeedYourFaith

#Make a Difference!
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.
