To change the world, you must change yourself.
And, without self reflection, you will not see the good, the bad, and what need an upgrade.
What you see in others is in you
What you see in yourself is in countless others
To change the world then, you must bring what is inside to the forefront
This is where the change begins
Presenting a transformed you to your world.
I believe being born again means reintroducing ourselves, our new being in Christ to the world.
When there is no difference between us and the world other than the words we speak, then we cannot impact the world, try as we may.
The world knows words are cheap.
However, acting out The Word, seeing a transformed being cannot be explained away! This is what can change the world
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Change the world one person at a time starting with You! Your good self!
There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.
Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.
Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.
What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.
You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.
At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!
Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23
By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!
Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!
Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21
Life is in seasons friends!
Whatever season you are presently in, remember the Lord your God and worship Him.
He who was there in the season of scarcity, sorrow, and hurt, is in the midst of your plenty, joy, and healing.
He was in the midst of war, shielding and protecting, and still is there in the midst of peace, stroking the back of your neck.
This God is the Most High God, the Ancient of Days that rules in the affairs of men. He is all knowing, all seeing, He is ever faithful, only constant, always on time.
He knows what He is doing. Trust Him!

Marriage is the first institution ordained by God. This is a fact, however, since the beginning of time, right from the garden, it has been tumultuous.
There has always been issues in the union of marriage and there will always be! We pray for understanding, commitment, determination to make it work, and all, but if it does not work, that does not strip you of the glory of God or your salvation!
I am so happy that the greatest influencer of our faith – Jesus Christ himself, and Paul the Apostle were never married! Yet, they laid down for us the will of God. Neither was Martin Luther until much later!
I am sure glad the woman by the well married 5 husbands and some, yet she met with Christ Jesus one on one! And Anna? She died after witnessing the dedication of our Lord Jesus in the temple. She was childless after living as a widow in the temple all her life!
To all then, who have built doctrines, ministry roundabout marriage and motherhood, equating Salvation with marriage, or should I say to marital bliss, even if it’s make believe, stand back from your high horse.
Jesus came to save our soul! You can be married, live in hell here on earth and end up in eternal darkness, vice versa!
Anyone know Peninnah? It sure would be great to live in eternal bliss from here to there though, don’t get me wrong! This is the ideal! Every soul craves for such! Heavenly right?
It is time to put aside all these divisive doctrine, meant to classify, discourage, and limit people, sowing discord where there should be harmony!
I dare you in all honesty to examine your heart! Are you convinced in there that being married is the ultimate mark of purity, salvation, holiness, usefulness in the kingdom of God? And in the hand of the creator of heaven and earth?
I have so much to say!
