Never Entertain Fear

Fear is a killer. Fear is a destroyer of destinies. Fear is the stealer of good fortune. Fear is a time waster! Fear is one of the tools in the arsenal of Satan. Fear is what principalities and powers use to keep you away from your God given destiny. Fear is what the agent of darkness uses to keep you in perpetual mediocrity. Fear is what oppressors use to keep you subservient to their whims. Fear must never be embraced! Fear must be resisted, and put in its place. Resist and it will flee from you -James 4-7 !

Fear steals your backbone.

There is provision for you and I in 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. We have an assurance every single day to pick one fear not off of our clothing rack every single day plus 1 extra. We must wear fear not as an armour to deflect ever arrow of fear shot at us. Many Bible schoolers have confirmed that there is 366 “Fear Not” in the Book of Life. Pick one up daily!

Fear is what makes you to know the truth yet keep quiet about it. Fear is what makes you to stay silent in the face of injustice, racism, fascism, and every kind of evil towards others. Fear immobilizes you, and erodes your will power. Fear makes you to be less of yourself. Fear is what makes you to sit when you ought to stand! Fear steals your backbone.

To conquer fear, you must look it in the face without blinking. You must face your fears, analyse it, and come up with strategies to confront it. With fear, you must not take a break enforcing your right. Just a leeway is all it need to control you! Be consciously aware of what is real, what is presenting itself to you as reality, and what the true presenting situation is. Be proactive in confronting your fears

How very little can be done under the spirit of fear. Florence Nightingale, 1820-1910 – English Statistician

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. ONLY I WILL REMAIN. Frank Herbert – 1920-1986 – American Writer

Confront your fear, give it no room, put it where it belongs so you can soar on eagles wings. You are capable of flying friends, let no fear keep you bound!

Shalom!

Be Happy!

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. Henry Ward Beecher – 1813-1887 – American Minister

You need to master yourself. Master your feelings, identify the things that gives you pleasure, the simple things of life that raises your vibration.

Friends, I pray you’ll spend time with yourself, to know yourself, love yourself as God loves you, and then you will be able to find joy in the simplest of things.

Love that person in the mirror, and you’ll learn to love others as yourself!

In God’s presence is fullness of joy! If you have Christ within you, you’ll be happy in every and all situation

You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalms 16:11

When you are happy, you are bound to bring joy to many friends! No one want to be with the perpetually gloomy one!

Learn the art of being happy! Be in His presence at all times!

Shalom!

Same Old Ways?

Change Your Mind

You can be whoever you want to be friends. Give yourself permission to step out of your comfort zone.
Regardless of who you are or where you’ve been, you can be what you want to be. W. Clement Stone- 1902 -2002, Businessman and Author

Refuse to be limited in your mind. Dream again! Open up your heart for love again! Say Yes!

Give yourself permission to evolve, to improve, heal, grow, and equip yourself to take up new challenges.
Friends, you need to challenge those thoughts, and beliefs that are not serving you.

  • You can dream again
  • Hope again
  • Love again
  • Trust again
  • Walk again
  • Run against
  • Do something, and everything all-over again

It is permitted!

What is not permitted is for you to stay tied to one idea, a way of being, and doing what feels safe and comfortable, but unfulfilling! Step out in faith! Become!

Shalom

Dust Off That Dream

Be Persistent

No dream is too far gone that it cannot be realized.

You just have to consistently work on the dreams. You must maintain momentum, manage your time wisely, learn to prioritize, and stay focused on the bigger picture!

Keep at it and you will succeed!

Shalom

He Loves You First

The devil created nothing except chaos. He created no being!. The creator is the Most High God, the Almighty, All, Knowing, All Seeing God. And He created YOU

Therefore, in reaching out to the world, I must let them know of this fact. The Almighty created everyone, and there’s NONE too far lost that cannot be saved. You belong to God already. Psalms 24:1 He is willing to bring you home where love reside.

I mean, until you and I, as Christians stand and speak from this premise, the love of God cannot be shed abroad in our hearts. Romans 5:5.

I know God loves me despite and inspite of me, and he loves me before I acknowledged Him as Lord. God made me fall in love with Him. I love Him now because He first loved me. 1 John 4:19

Like a parent loves their babies, cares, and nurture them, so God has been caring for you.

I need someone to know that you are unconditionally loved by God. You only need to acknowledge His love right now.

Friends, acknowledge God’s love for you. That situation could have been worst you know?

God’s love saved you, made a way of escape, healed you, encouraged you, gave you hope and is preserving you this moment, making room for you to acknowledge Him. Don’t let this moment pass by.

Speak to Jesus from your heart. Ask Him to help you to see Him as He is. Romans 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith, your believe in Jesus that you are saved.

As many as received Him, He gave the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe in His name; John 1:12

Praise God

Defined And Known By Love

1 Corinthians 8:1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds upThose who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to knowBut whoever loves God is known by God.

This pretty much tells us about the nature of love if you can see it from this perspective. Your love for God makes you known to God. It makes you known to others too. For the scriptures says by their fruits ye shall know them! Matthew 7:16-27

Matthew 7:16-20 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

God knows who loves Him. We should also know who loves us. If a supposed representative of God bears no good fruits that you can see amongst all virtues then you must know such is not of God. Do not be deceived. False Christians abound! Don’t be one either!

There is chaos in Texas and a Senator thinks this is the time to go on vacation? What fruit is this folks?

Talk is cheep! Action speaks louder!

It is time Christians begin to look at the fruits a tree is bearing. Talk is cheep! Action speaks louder! But when words are backed up by action, good or bad, you will know who is on the Lords side! We must be intentional in doing good! And for all! Not a selected few!

In our individual lives, we must take stock and weed out every greed, bitterness of Spirit, negativity, selfishness, and egocentrism most especially. Jesus Christ is our model! Be Christlike!

The story of the good Samaritan should teach each and everyone of us valuable lessons. It does no matter if the needy got themselves into their predicament, our duty as Christ’s beloved is to help. In the last 11 months or thereabout, how many of your Church member did you check upon man of God? How many did you send word of encouragement to woman of God? Christians should care for one another!

Love builds up! Love God, love yourself, and love others like yourself!

Shalom!

Thoughts, Tongues And Words

The power of the tongue

When Christ love is in your heart, it will show in your words and deed. Receive grace to speak words that sustains the weary.

Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled;with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. 21 The tongue has the power of life and death,
 and those who love it will eat its fruit.

James 3:5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Speak God’s words and it shall be established. Speak words of affirmation and no condemnation. Evil words are viruses. Speak words seasoned with salt. Let the words of your mouth sustain the weary.

Psalms 19:14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Words fitly spoken are like apples of gold in pictures of silver – Proverbs 25:11

Shalom!
