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“.
Keep all hope alive. Even if you have every reason to believe otherwise. There will always be some form of opposition to attack everything you believe. Your test help builds your faith, character, patience and strength. Keep your mind sharp and guard your heart. Block away all of the enemy’s attacks by praying. Before you leave your house, it’s important to pray so that you can set the foundation for the rest of the day. No matter what issues may arise, you are protected through the power of prayer. It’s a covering of protection. Put on the full armor of God and remember that the best is yet to come.
Always remember before you walk out the door this morning, God has everything taken care of. He is the provider of ALL your needs.
2 Timothy 1:7 says, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Do not subject to your flesh and worry. Worry can mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically drain you. It also limits who God is. Oh ye of so little faith. If he takes care of the birds and other living creatures on the face of the earth what makes you think that he will not take care of you? Cast all worry, fear and doubt out of your thinking. Be anxious for nothing, for he is the way, truth and life. Jesus is the cure for worry and his word is the prescription. Rejoice, for today is a new day and all the old things have faded away.
Make the most of your time and energy. Allow nothing to go waste. Make everything count by striving to be the best you can be. You are not in competition with anyone else other than yourself. Make a difference today by doing something out your comfort zone. Stretch further and beyond. There is nothing that you cannot do with his power and strength. Always, and I mean always be encouraged for the best is yet to come.
#Make a Difference!
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.
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.
