Hold on to your Faith: Faint Not

sunset-1402784

Hold on to your faith even when you cannot find it in anyone or anywhere else. Sometimes it may be the only thing you have to hold on to. It is written in 2 Corinthians 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight”.  It’s never about what’s happening around you, but what’s within you. The words faith and faint sound and almost look similar, but they have two different meanings. Faith means to believe while faint means to fall and to lose consciousness.

What storm has arose against you? Remember it’s not about what’s around you, but what’s within you. It is written in Matthew 8:23-27:

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

There is no need to worry about anything that is around you. As long as God is with you, You shall be protected and secure from the waves of life that tries to knock you down. Be faithful and be whole. Hold on to his power and strength that he has given you in the midst of the storm. Faint Not! 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JZXZEY4

1 Step at a Time (Change)

change

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“.

The Division of Separation

Division

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.

The Fruit of Patience

patience

 

Patience is one of the most difficult things to master. It’s an area that many fall short in especially when it comes to short term or long term situations. A test of patience can be waiting in a long line or waiting for career advancement, marriage etc. If we do not have patience, then how can we grow, if we are like children trying to get what we want when we want it. It’s important for us let our patience blossom. Patience develops discipline.

If you have the faith and you have the action that corresponds with it, then all you need now is patience. Allow your faith to stir up your patience. They both go hand in hand together. Patience gives us a chance to humbly wait on God. When we wait on God to do things his way, it allows him to step in to handle it righteously. James 1:4: says “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience”.

Sometimes the only thing that’s holding us back is patience. What good is faith and works if we have no patience? Waiting requires patience. Receiving the best requires patience . When his word comes to pass, you will not only need faith but the precious garments of patience. Wait upon the LORD and he will make sure that your patience will pay off.

Hot Or Cold?

hot or cold

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.

Temptation Is Everywhere

temptationWhat 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.
