Be Encouraged! Striving For A Crown!

When you are striving for a crown, there is no room to waver. You must dig in your heel or else like Peter, you might sink. Matthew 14: 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Discouragement will definitely come from different avenues. The facts of life will buffet you with tempest, other forces will band together to wear you out, cause fear, all this is to weary you out, to take your eyes off your goal. 

1 Corinthians 9: 26 do not run like someone running aimlessly; do not fight like a boxer beating the air.

Stay committed till the end!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Get Ready!

Destiny is not a location! It’s in the journey! So therefore, keep walking, you are fulfilling your purpose! Don’t be fainthearted!

Determined To Live Life!!!

For I know that faithful is He who called me

For at the appointed time, in a short time, this very season

I shall possess all that is mine in destiny

For the hand that is not of mortal is fighting for me

Recovering all that I have lost, withheld from me, and robbed off!

Great are you Lord! Be magnified!

Radiant Glory Of Love

bestrongI refuse to be hardened by the working of the elements

The seemingly conspiring of the universe

For all that God created are meant for my good

Although, I have been cheated many a times

Ridiculed, maligned, and oppressed

I counted it as nothing for the price set before me

For I know that faithful is He who called me

For at the appointed time, in a short time

As ordained of God, Most High

The Universe, all creation will conspire

To favor my righteous cause

I therefor will stand my ground

Resisting evil fiercely if need be

For God’s kingdom suffers violence

That I might see the Salvation of the Lord

For there is yet beauty beyond the ashes

Celebration, joy and peace

In the place of the storm

Life is still worth living

Beauty encased in!

Only to be revealed

To the willing, obedient, and determined

To get…

Favored By God!

Esther 2:8 So it was, when the king’s command and decree were heard, and when many young women were gathered at Shushan the citadel, under the custody of Hegai, that Esther also was taken to the king’s palace, into the care of Hegai the custodian of the women. Now the young woman pleased him, and she obtained his favor; so he readily gave beauty preparations to her, besides her allowance. Then seven choice maidservants were provided for her from the king’s palace, and he moved her and her maidservants to the best place in the house of the women. 10 Esther had not revealed her people or family, for Mordecai had charged her not to reveal it. 11 And every day Mordecai paced in front of the court of the women’s quarters, to learn of Esther’s welfare and what was happening to her.

She was from the lowliest, probably would not have been taken had her Uncle not hurriedly prepared her with the finest dress she possessed, brushed her hair and used the last perfume and some herbs to beautify her. I believe she was a willing party or else Uncle Mordecai would not have been able to walk her down the path for the palace messengers to see her. Esther was obedient!

Throughout the book of Esther, we saw her obedience and demeanor gaining her favor right from the Kings Eunuch to the King himself. At a later date when she desperately needed help for her people, she found favor also in the sight of God, for God made the King to favor Esther even when she had clearly broken the rules. Esther 5:2 So it was, when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the scepter. And the king said to her, “What do you wish, Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given to you—up to half the kingdom!”

Favor! Favor! Favor with God and man is critical in everyone’s fulfillment of destiny. This favor was what Queen Vashti lacked and many struggling through life today. Favor does make a lot of difference in anyone’s life. It overlooks every shortcomings- disobedience, facts of life, natural inconveniences and all to bestow on a person what they do not deserve or qualify for. Favor, the game changer is a gift bestowed by God! Favor can be activated with praise and worship, repentance of course, and getting right with God by forsaking every sin that easily besetts, forgiving others so you can receive forgiveness also – Matthew 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Shalom!
