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

Unworthy

 

shadow-man-in-the-night-1254955

Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”.

God can always still use you the way you are. Sometimes we feel that we have to have it all together in order to come to him. We are constantly internally reminded of our shortcomings and weaknesses. We are also reminded on the excuses reasons of why we cannot be used. The great thing about God is that his love is eternal. There are no conditions nor limitations that is placed on his love. He knew who you were before you formed in your mother’s womb. He already knew your weakness. But his power is made great in weakness. His love is greater than your weakness or any feeling of unworthiness. There is a reason why he chose you to get the tasks done. It’s more amazing when someone has forms of limitations, but still complete the tasks that are necessary. Don’t ignore his voice, hearken unto him. Allow him to work on you as the way you are. You are not alone or in it by yourself. Unworthiness can block you from so many blessings that God has in store. Despite what you may have done or what other have people done to you, does not negate the truth that God stills loves you and has plans for you. Don’t allow any wall of anger or guilt to separate or stand in the way of pursing a relationship with God. He’s bigger than all of your issues. Again, you are the perfect one for him to use. See yourself the way that he sees you.

It is written in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”.

Don’t Become Blind: Learning from Mistakes

mistakes

 

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.

Is God 1st place in your life? Remove all Idols

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 🙂

Your Gift Will Make Room For You: What’s Working Against You Can Work For you!

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

Sleeping?

Discernment is very important to have in this day and age. It’s a precious gift from God. With so much chaos going on in the world, this is not a time to be sleep. We must be on guard at all times. Don’t allow your pride to deceive you in handling things your way. God always knows how to handle things better than we do. (That includes vengeance) Satan is very crafty. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. Always stay in prayer, even when you don’t feel like it or have to. Mathew 26:40-41 says, And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

This scripture is interesting because it always surprised me on how people can be sleeping in the presence of Jesus. Are you sleeping when God is calling you to pray, fast and obey? Are you sleeping when you hear his voice of instruction? Sleep can cause you to miss out on the biggest blessing that can come your way. Wake up and arise! For you must be prepared and ready for what’s on the way. His strength and power will keep you in perfect peace.

Renovate Your Thinking

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.

Repent: There is No More Time to Waste

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

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.

Do Not Become Numb: Embrace your Emotions

Numbness is dangerous in the natural as well as in the spiritual. In the natural, if numbness is not treated, that part of the body can become infected. So many people are spiritually paralyzed. The ability to feel is a powerful experience and blessing. God has given us emotions not to be led by them but to worship him. Emotions are blessing and not a curse. Emotions can be sometimes be interpreted as being weak. So many people run from their emotions and become numb. Some people have shut themselves off completely and hardened their hearts. This makes it difficult to not receive or enact on what God is saying to your spirit. This can create a sense of pride and block your healing and deliverance. Numbness can rob you of the experience of joy, love, happiness and peace. (Fruits of the spirit). The ability to feel is a wonderful thing because your able to process what’s going on in your mind and heart. Emotions can develop encouragement that will not allow the past experience of pain to keep you numb. Don’t allow people to steal your joy, glow, energy and colorful personality. You are not a robot. Another great thing about the ability to feel is the reminder that your conscience has not left you. Your conscience is a valuable treasure from God which protects you.

The worst thing that God can do to anyone is to take away their conscience. Repentance is a gift from God. When you do not have the desire to repent or feel any conviction, you are a dead man walking. 

Numbness blocks off your conscience and your ability to “see” clearly. Keeping your guard up can prohibit discernment and prevent you from enjoying the fullness of life. Numbness can prevent covenant relationships that could enter into your life. While it’s important to guard your heart’s affections do not allow anyone or anything to turn you into something you’re not. (cold or mean-spirited) God can fix any broken heart and sometimes he will test you to see if you truly believe him. Whether it’s a hostile work, school or home environment, do not give anyone or anything no form of power. Dust it off. Why dim your light? You are more than a conqueror. The sun will always rise again. Joy shall cometh in the morning. Do not shut your feelings off, it allows you to be human and effective for the kingdom of God. Embrace your emotions.
