Wisdom is the principal thing, humility and empathy are its friends.
It is time to revolutionize the way of thinking in this present dispensation. Time for a paradigm shift!! Change is required, change is needed, change is here, change is welcome!!!! Change is here to stay! Embrace change! Change is good!!!!
We must sift through the recess of our minds and uproot those seeds planted long ago that is not bringing forth desirable fruits. We must do some rearranging, cultivate and consciously plant fresh, new and viable seeds to sustain this next leap on the journey of life.
As an individual we all need this as we have been conditioned by many factors. As a body we do need change to get result – the “unchurched” to be “Churched” Our world demands it if we are going to reach it for the Kingdom of our Savior Jesus Christ! We need change to remain relevant!
Let the Holy Spirit revolutionize The Church one soul after another Oh Lord! We need revival in our midst. Set our soul on fire Lord. Help your people!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
What do you do when you do not feel like praying? What do you do when you know God hears every word you say, yet wants you to talk to HIM about your needs and you have, but it seems nothing is happening?. What do you do when you are just tired? You are not quitting, just tired? Still pray the bible says! 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing!
Pray without ceasing? How can I pray when my heart is aching? How can I pray when nothing seems to make sense, though I know I am in your will Lord? How can I pray through this misunderstanding, betrayal, lies, manipulation and outright wickedness? Lord what do I do? I know Lord that you are faithful and full of compassion! I know you love me with an everlasting love, but I don’t feel loved right now! I want to feel your warm embrace but all I feel right now is the jab of an elbow, a right upper cut close to my heart! Lord I am aching, will you soothe me please! Is that your cry friends? Maybe not this intense, but close right?
Sing praises my friend! Praise God for His faithfulness. You see friends, whatever you are going through right now does not change God’s love for you. Neither does it change who God is! God is forever faithful, merciful and full of compassion, not only to the sheep in His barn but to those others. Therefore praise God for His constancy, omniscience, sovereignty, for that is Who God is and He only can help you! Talk to God my friends, He is nearer than you feel and He is listening! Let God know how you feel like you would talk to a close friend, spouse or parent! God wants to hear you speak to Him about everything.
Open up this moment and humbly share your thoughts, heartaches, and all with your maker. Christ is the burden bearer and wants to take that load from off you. Lay it down at this feet this moment- Matthew 11:Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Jesus also prayed to the Father about YOU and I in John 17! Pray!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank God for your life, all the nitty gritty of living, for your ups and downs for they have helped to shape your appreciation of God’s awesomeness. Thank God for being God! He is a good God regardless of what you are going through or happening all around you. God is good. Praise Him for your life, salvation and all. Without Christ saving grace where would you be? Now you know! Thank God!
It is said that the greatest enemy of greatness is distraction. Distraction will make you lose focus of what is important, it will create doubt, unbelief and confusion the cost of which are – the list is unlimited:
A bestseller novels, books, and journals not written
A #1 on the chat album not released
An impact, positive influence in your family, community, society and globally
A powerful move of the Holy Spirit through you to jump-start a revival
A Grammy for best picture movie not made
A successful growing business empire not built
A much-needed/anticipated medical solution not researched / discovered
A beautiful love / life not nurtured, not shared
A home family not built
A child not given birth too
A friendship not sustained
A marriage not enjoyed
A career / business not built
A vision and revelation not pursued and prayed into manifestation
An endless mirage of might have been
Please prayerfully put a system in place to help you, something or someone who would channel you back to the original plan when you set out from heaven. Who better to do this than the Holy Spirit of the Most High God. You can draw up a plan, have sticky notes all over your house, car and office, alarm set for every hour on your cell.
Without conscious discipline distraction would still find a way through. This is where the Holy Spirit comes in. He is the spirit of truth and guides us into all truth. Will you let Him help you to stay focused on what is important, what is necessary to your walking in victory as ordained of God?
Friends, will you jump into the moment? Acknowledge that you cannot do it all alone and that you need His help, confess, repent, forsake all known sins – God is too holy to behold unrighteousness no matter how little we perceive it. Receive the righteousness of Christ Jesus and cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, let Him abide in you and with you.
Take this lifetime opportunity to build on the Rock, the immovable Rock of ages that never fails. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever world without end.
1 Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.
2 Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.
7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
Psalms 17: 1-9
1 Hear me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer— it does not rise from deceitful lips.
2 Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right.
3 Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed.
4 Though people tried to bribe me,I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded.
5 My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled.
6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.
Through you Oh Lord my heart sings I am free
I am free to love, live, ……………….
I am free to live for you Lord
I know the Son has set me free
I am free to be who you Lord created me to be –
A shinning light of love that shatters every form of darkness
