GIVE IT ALL TO GOD

“Cast your burden on the Lord , And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved”.(Psalms 55:22)
“casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you”{1 Peter 5:7}.

Let Go and Trust God
+Are You ever at a loss for words?
+Have you ever had an issue to address with someone, but you just didn’t know where to start?
+Here are some fundamental principles of scripture that will help you.
Proverb 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all of your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.
6 In all of your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.
Matthew 10:19-20
19 …take no thought how or what all of you shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what all of you shall speak.
20 For it is not all of you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaks in you.

14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, NOT to meditate before what all of you shall answer:
15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all of your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
Philippians 2:13
For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
+Just let Go and Trust God.

+Have you ever had something to say to someone and wanted to say it the right way, at the right time, but you were also angry with the person?
+Here are some more fundamental principles of scripture that will help us.

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God.

GODLINESS

“Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship. And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].(ROMANS 12:1‭-‬2 AMP).

“Therefore, since we have these [great and wonderful] promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, completing holiness [living a consecrated life—a life set apart for God’s purpose] in the fear of God”. (2 CORINTHIANS 7:1 AMP).

“But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. For we have brought nothing into the world, so [it is clear that] we cannot take anything out of it, either”.(1 TIMOTHY 6:6‭-‬7 AMP).

“So prepare your minds for action, be completely sober [in spirit—steadfast, self-disciplined, spiritually and morally alert], fix your hope completely on the grace [of God] that is coming to you when Jesus Christ is revealed. [Live] as obedient children [of God]; do not be conformed to the evil desires which governed you in your ignorance [before you knew the requirements and transforming power of the good news regarding salvation]. But like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves in all your conduct [be set apart from the world by your godly character and moral courage]; because it is written, “Y ou shall be holy (set apart), for I am holy .” (1 PETER 1:13‭-‬16 AMP).

WRONG THINKING

God can’t bless you abundantly , if you are holding on to things He told you to let go. How can you move forward ,when you’re holding on to past hurt,pain,and defeat. Empty your plate,get rid of the garbage in your mind,wash your hands,clean of the dirt and mess,so that God can give you the blessings , He has for you.

“Therefore, putting away lying, “ Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you”. (Ephesians 4:25‭-‬32 NKJV).

“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind. Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame— who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself”. (Philippians 3:12‭-‬21 NKJV).

“Let the wicked leave (behind) his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the Lord , And He will have compassion (mercy) on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord . “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts higher than your thoughts. For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, Making it bear and sprout, And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it”. (ISAIAH 55:7‭-‬11 AMP).

FINALLY  

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones”. (Proverbs 3:5‭-‬8 NKJV).

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which  is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. (Romans 12:1‭-‬2 NKJV).

BELIEVE IT OR NOT….

Why wouldn’t  you take a chance with Jesus , and end up in heaven . Than not take the chance and end up in the lake of fire and brimstone  with the devil ,and his agents. You take so many chances   with people , and investments on things that doesn’t  matter. Why not invest in everlasting  life,that Jesus  offers to us; or like many who had the chance , and reject  it. Then end up in a place where   you don’t   have a chance  of redemption . 

THE GREAT WHITE  THRONE JUDGMENT  

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the  Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire”. (Revelation 20:11‭-‬15 NKJV).

“And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”(Revelation 21:6‭-‬8 NKJV).

“But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah”. (Jude 1:5‭-‬11 NKJV).

A GLIMPSE  OF THE FUTURE  

“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and  be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”(Revelation 21:1‭-‬8 NKJV).

STARVE YOUR FEAR

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”.(II Timothy 1:7 NKJV).

So if God didn’t give you fear, who did? That low down good for nothing, lake of fire bound devil. So reject fear, tell the devil to go to hell with it.

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love”.(I John 4:18 NKJV).

The devil’s job is to steal, kill, and destroy. Don’t let him lead, nor entice you down that highway to hell.

No One To Fear

At some point in our life we need to be reminded of God’s love and faithfulness and give Him all the praise, honor and glory.

“The Lord is my Light and my Salvation.
Who is there to fear?
The Lord is my life’s Fortress.
Who is there to be afraid of?
Evildoers closed in on me to tear me to pieces.
My opponents/enemies stumbled and fell.
Even though an army sets up camp against me, my heart will not be afraid.
Even though a war breaks out against me,
I will still have confidence in the Lord.
I have asked one thing from the Lord, this will I seek:
To remain in the Lord’s house all the days of my life in order to gaze at the Lord’s beauty and search for an answer in His temple.
He hides me in His shelter when there is trouble.
He sets me high on a rock.
Now my head will be raised above my enemies who surround me.
I will sing and make music to praise the Lord.
Hear O Lord, when I cry aloud.
Have pity on me and answer me.
When You said, ” Seek My face,”
My heart said to You,
“O Lord, I will seek Your face.”
Do not hide Your face from me.
Do not angrily turn me away.
You have been my help.
Do not leave me!
Do not abandon me, O God my Savior!
Even if my father and mother abandon me,
The Lord will take care of me.
Teach me Your way, O Lord.
Lead me on a level path because I have enemies who spy on me. Do not surrender me to the will of my opponents.
False witnesses have risen against me.
They breathe out violence.
I believe that I will see the goodness of the Lord in this world of the living.
Wait with hope for the Lord.
Be strong, and let your heart be courageous.
Yes, wait with hope for the Lord.
(Psalm 27)
Dear Lord, I thank You, that You, the God of heaven and earth, are also my Light and my Salvation. You give me strength and guard my heart. When I remember that You are with me and for me, I realize that I have nothing to be afraid of, and no one to fear. Nothing can violate the love You have for me. As I go my way today, Lord, I will keep in mind I have nothing to fear, and trust, believe and follow You Lord Who love me deeply. Thank You Lord. In Jesus loving and precious name, I pray, Amen…

KEEP GOING

“But now, this is what the Lord , your Creator says, ……….“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [from captivity]; I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; ………(ISAIAH 43:1‭-‬3 AMP).

“I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around. Arise, O Lord ; Save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongs to the Lord . Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah”. (Psalms 3:6‭-‬8 NKJV).

“Let those who fear the Lord now say, “His mercy endures forever.” I called on the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place. The Lord is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me. It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in princes”. (Psalms 118:4‭-‬5‭, ‬7‭-‬9 NKJV).

“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen”.(Jude 1:24‭-‬25 NKJV).

VICTORY is YOURS!
+Do not quit or give up on your VICTORY.
+Remember you have the VICTORY. The battle is not for the VICTORY. The battle comes to try you, to test you, and to get you to forfeit the VICTORY you already have.
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, Who gave us the VICTORY through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of FAITH…
+Remember Hebrews 4:2
…but the word preached did not profit them, not being MIXED with FAITH in them that heard it.
Hebrews 10:35
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompense of reward.
Hebrews 10:36
For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise.
VICTORY is YOURS!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

SPEAK LIFE, NOT DEATH

Growing up  they used to tell us, that if you have nothing  good  to say,don’t  say anything . But the world has changed  drastically .  No one has any regards  about anyone’s  feelings . They also used  to say that sticks and stones , may break your bones , but words can’t ,but that’s  a lie, unkind words can damage  you for a lifetime, if you don’t  know how to eradicate  it out of your system . The  best way to get it out of your system ,is to use it to motivate  you, or speak positive   words over yourself. 

The power of life ,and death  is in your mouth. So if someone  speak  something  negative  to you,speak positive  to yourself. King David   did it and it worked (1 Samuel   30:6), so can you.

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers”. (Ephesians 4:29 NKJV).

“Let your speech always be  with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one”. (Colossians 4:6 NKJV).

“Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It  is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so”.(James 3:5‭-‬10 NKJV).

Keeping the Unity of the Faith
1 Corinthians 1:10
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
+Excellent communication in the things of God is the KEY to experience Victory and Good Success.
+Let us all speak the same thing. This is agreement in language.
+No division among you means we all stand in agreement and unity with and for the same things.
+Perfectly joined together is compatibility. Living and working together consistently in harmony and conformity to Word, the Holy, Christ our Savior and God our Father.
+The same mind is the Mind of Christ, and the same Judgement is that which Christ would have you say and do in every situation.
•Remember communication is the basis of life. When communication breaks down, the enemy uses this to bring Confusion, Divisions and such like things.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
