It is written in Isaiah 41:10, Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. falling apart. His word and voice is the only foundation. The Lord is present with you wherever you go. In today’s world, it is difficult to go somewhere in general without being extra cautious of our surroundings. We should always be in constant prayer, faith, and obedience. Living a life that is pleasing to him is priceless. We should never get distracted or become ignorant of the tools of Satan. (That’s why prayer and discernment is so important). Be in good cheer, for trouble does not last always. Continue to allow God to elevate you with his mighty power and miraculous strength. Allow him to keep you in perfect peace when you feel like rely on. Be encouraged!
It is written in John 10 27-28 that, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. Fear Not, for the current beginning and end of time events of this world, only means that his return is closer. Fill your mind with peace, fill your heart with faith and fill your spirit with his word and not void. His word shall still stand when every thing fails. Don’t live your life in fear for the Lord is Always with you even from the beginning of time 🙂
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!
Everyday is special. Make it count by doing something to make God happy. Normally, we do things to make ourselves or other people happy. Make God smile by not only by your words and faith, but by your action. Find ways to get closer to him by praying more, reading his word a little longer or simply create new goals to evolve in your relationship with him. Draw closer to him while his presence is near. Repent while there’s still a chance. Repentance is a gift that should not be taken for granted (especially in the last days) What can you do that’s out of your norm to please him today? Things may not always go your way, but part of being spiritually mature means you will still do the right thing even when the wrong thing is happening. Allow God to transform and pick up the pieces of your life. We cannot continue to label and limit God to just our understanding, thoughts, opinions, ideology and philosophies. He is God and he shall not share his glory with another! Commit and surrender your all to him and he will surely move in your life. Don’t cling on to your own life, for you will surely lose it. Save it by giving it to him. Do not allow your soul to deteriorate slowly.
A plan without God will crumble. He is the guide and direction to your path. If you do not have the all of the tools, money, support or resources for the dream you have, it’s actually a good thing. It allows you to become totally dependent upon him. It also stretches your faith further. It’s also a good sign that your dream is not too small. Your vision is too small if you can do it all yourself. If you have it all figured out, then you don’t need him. If your going to dream, then dream big. God will supply everything you need. He will open doors that no man can shut. Everything has a set season and time. Every step of the process will require patience and endurance. Don’t allow your dream to fade away. Correspond the action with your faith. He can use whatever you have (even if it’s not much). His strength is made perfect through weakness. The only thing that can stop you is you. What are you waiting for? There is no excuse that’s bigger than the plans he has for you. Eyes have not seen nor ears have heard the things he has in store for you. Dream Big!!!
What do you have to gain by giving up? There is always a time when quitting looks good. In my personal life, there were times when I thought about quitting college, jobs and other personal achievements and endeavors. Finishing makes it worth it. There is nothing like finishing. The obstacles makes the success greater to enjoy. Pain and process can create some impressive results for God ways are mysterious.
Stay committed until the end. Put your all into everything you do. (Even when your all seems to fall short). Mediocrity does run in your DNA. You are held to a higher standard. You live in the world but are not of the world. Stop waiting on the approval and validation from other people to tell you that you’re great. You must encourage yourself. Go forth and rise up! It’s important to run your race. No one else’s. You have a different calling and assignment. He has set you a part. Commitment should not be driven by feelings. Commitment is showing up when you don’t feel like it. It runs deeper than loyalty. It requires discipline, honor and obligation. It requires getting back up when you’re fallen down. It takes a spirit of courage and wisdom. It’s take more than dedication and determination. It takes the spirit of a true champion and over comer. There are a few people in this world who have the spirit of commitment. Commitment displays your character and how far you can go. Don’t quit. The best is yet to come. Your best days are in front of you and not behind you. Put God over all that you do. Stay true and faithful to him. His word shall never return void. He shall honor your commitment, for he will reward you openly for what you do in secret. Can he trust you drop it all for his sake? Commit yourself unto him. He will protect you through it all. He will always preserve his best. Remain faithful even until the end.

Trust is a very powerful word. It’s something easier said than done. Relationships of all forms are destroyed without it. There’s nothing like not having a safety net, to see if you really trust God. When your back up plan crumbles and you only have faith left to stand on, it can determine if you truly trust God. Trusting God means trusting him with your actions and not just words. Why? because trust is a verb. Doubt destroys faith. It also limits what God can do. You can never please God without faith. The God we serve is too big to be put in a box! It’s easy to trust him when things are going great, but when life throws you a curve ball, can you still trust him? When the unexpected occurs and when the situation is out of your hands, can you still trust him? When God tells you a promise that you haven’t seen come to pass yet, do you still trust him? God is always true to his word and he is not a man who shall lie. Trust is demonstrated the most in the times of distress or in a trail. Just like your faith, your trust is priceless and it cannot be brought. If you put your trust in anything else, then you will become restless, disappointed and weary. Trust in him through the midst of the test. Do not worry about anything, neither be anxious for nothing, for he will always provide a way out no way. Give him your all. Trust in him for he will never leave you or forsake you.
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.
