Be Not Entangled

entanglement-1402305

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 🙂

Always Be Confident :)

 

blue-mountains-sunset-1336208

Confidence comes from within. You can have all the outer and exterior things you desire and it will still not create true happiness. Confidence, joy and happiness is a choice. You must trust God that he did not make a mistake when he made you in his image. No one can take away your confidence unless you allow them. It’s important to love yourself. You cannot expect someone else to give you what you don’t have for yourself. No need to seek validation and approval from others or in substitutes. Always know that you are not what others say about you. The LORD shall shut the mouth of every naysayer that came against you. The LORD will always use every negative situation for your good to preserve you. Be strong and courageous in who he made you to be. Continued to be encouraged! Remain whole and not into pieces. It is written in Hebrews 10:35:Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward”. Allow your confidence to come from GOD and none other. Allow him to steer the ship against the waves of insecurity of any form. Be Confident. Do not allow the Devil to win ♥

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.

sea-storm-1468437

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

He’s Still Going to Do it!

stock-illustration-3751722-leap-of-joy-in-the-mountains

No matter how long its been; no matter what trouble you have been through, always remember that the LORD is still going to do what he has promised. Don’t allow winds of discouragement to throw you off course. No matter how many times you have been knocked down, get back up! It is written in Proverbs 24:16: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief”.

All you need is a mustard size seed of faith. That dream will come to pass, even when you felt that you may have lost it all. Sometimes the LORD will take you through different routes to get there, but its all part of the process to become better and stronger. There will be times in where things won’t appear fair, but in due season it shall pay off. Your going to be more stronger and powerful more than you have ever been before. Psalms 22:2: “says,  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters”. Speak it into existence and write the vision to make it plain. Don’t give up on him and don’t give up on your faith, for you have come too far now. When God is planning on to bless you, no Devil in hell can stop it. Don’t faint, fall or stumble. He is going to still bless you beyond measure. Your going to come out with much more than what you came in with. Don’t be angry with him, he is still going to make it happen.

Pick up the word of God as your weapon to fight against whatever doubt or attack that may come against you. It is written in Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. Be anxious for nothing. Allow him to do things his way. No matter what you been through, he is still going to do it! Increase you power and strength by reading his word.

Keep it Together….Don’t Collapse

Keep it all together when everything is fallen apart. This is a test of how much courage, strength, growth and wisdom that you have gained along the way. There will be things that will come from all corners and directions that will attack you. (Sometimes out of no where). It is written in Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Behind every negative force of energy and attack is something that is spiritual. Even when you have every reason to quit or give up, remain standing. Do not give anyone or anything your power. You are much stronger than you think you are, especially with God’s strength. Don’t fall apart. Keep your mind together, for you are more than a conqueror. Pass the test during the trial. Everything happens for a reason. When it’s all over, you will be standing victorious. The blessings will outweigh the pain, stress, rejection, loneliness, frustration and anger. Always go to your secret place and allow him to guard and protect you. There is greater and more on the way for you! Allow God to be the band that holds you together. Don’t collapse.

Dependable?

nice-1381075

The word dependable means trustworthy and reliable. It’s difficult in this time and age to put your trust into something or someone without being let down. Trust God as your rock and safety. If you are place in a situation in where others can mostly rely on you and not the other way around at times, it just means that God can trust you to handle more. It may appear as unfair or as a burden, but his plan is bigger than your emotions. He always prepares you for where you’re going. There is someone who is depending on you to survive, just as Joseph preserved his family and the land of Egypt from famine. Jesus came so that we may have life more abundantly.

It is written in Matthew 2:16: “Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men”.

Mankind needed his survival in order to live. Your assignment will require for someone to depend on your survival. Someone is counting on you to make it. You shall live and not die. He preserved Moses, Joshua, and David for his assignment; as so he will with you. That’s why you cannot become tired and weary. There is someone who is depending on your story to bring them out of their famine, bondage and persecution. He will give you power and strength to handle the pressure. All things come from him that is above.

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”.

This is Only the Beginning: Be Encouraged

a-new-day-1542580

Always believe that the best is always yet to come. There will be so many open doors in your journey. Fret not about what hasn’t worked out, for when the time comes, it will all come together. It shall come to full circle. None of your experiences shall go to waste. God is always in the control, which means nothing does not happen without his permission. He is all-knowing. Only he holds the key to the door of your future. No matter how powerful someone’s ranking, authority and title, remember that everything comes from God. He is the door and the manna. That means all opportunities and blessings are from him no matter whom he may use. When you feel that no one will give you a fair chance, please remember that God is the source, so there is no need to be discouraged. All credit and glory shall go to him and no other. No matter what trials you may endure there is better along the way. You are not a failure because you failed in some way (as we all do time to time). Closed doors are just as important as open doors. Come now and rejoice, for this is only the beginning of the great things to come! Be not discouraged, for there are so many people who will be reached through the power of your testimony ♥

Don’t Feel Pressured

under-pressure-1424631

Pressure is the use of persuasion, influence, or intimidation to make someone do something. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to wait upon the Lord, but it is also one of the most important things to do (especially when you have done all you can). Don’t feel pressured to move fast because of your outside surroundings and environment. It’s not about the swiftest or fastest who wins the race, but those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. Only move when he has called you to move. Don’t just do something out of your flesh or emotion because that’s what most people are doing. Don’t feel forced to be in a situation, relationship, job, or place when it’s not your timing. 

All pressure is not bad pressure. As matter of fact, some pressure has the potential to bring out your greatness. Some pressure can even be used as a motivator however, there are some things that we must wait on. Waiting is not easy nor comfortable to do, but it’s necessary to receive something greater, than if you would have rushed. His timing is perfect. The place and position he wants to place you in, is greater than the plans you had for yourself. It’s O.K.to not be satisfied in where you are currently at (that’s a good thing). Allow yourself to operate in his plans, his way. Remember when you feel discouraged, don’t feel pressured. Be anxious for nothing! Walking a narrow path may not be easy, but in due season your sufferings and afflictions will produce fruitful results and a bigger harvest along the way. It’s no pressure ♥

He’s Saving You for Someone Better

When you are on a certain level, you cannot have what everyone else has. If he has called you to be more, your standard has to be different. Allow God to do a new thing in you. Stop questioning how and when God wants to bless you. There are certain sacrifices that you must endure.

It is written in Romans 12:1: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service”.

It doesn’t take much do to what everyone’s doing. Set your self a part to receive more. Everything that’s fast is not always good. Delayed gratification is better than instant gratification. Instant coffee and food are not as good as the coffee and food that takes time to make and prepare. Do not get caught up in what everyone’s doing at the moment. It is only a distraction to throw you off your path. When it’s all said and done and when the smokes clears, you will be the one standing. Raise your expectations instead of lowering them. What looks extraordinary to everyone else should only look ordinary to you. There is a reason why you are in the season that you are in. He has so much in store for you. His plans are bigger for you. God just doesn’t hand his best to anybody. There are higher qualifications and requirements that one has to meet when it comes to who you are. He removes some people in your life because they are not going where you are going. Sometimes God will protect you from the wrong one, so you can receive something better along the way. He always saves the best for last. See yourself the way he sees you. He’s saving you for someone better 🙂
