YOU’RE  DIFFERENT  

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”(2 Corinthians 6:14‭-‬18 NKJV).

“Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the Lord . For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the Lord will go before you, And the God of Israel will  be your rear guard”.(Isaiah 52:11‭-‬12 NKJV).

“And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities”. (Revelation 18:4‭-‬5 NKJV)

“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon”. (Matthew 6:22‭-‬24 NKJV).

FINALLY

“Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord , And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are  like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish”. (Psalms 1:1‭-‬6 NKJV).

“Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”. (Romans 6:12‭-‬23 NKJV).

GODLY LIVING  

“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. For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of  himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let  us  use  them: if prophecy, let  us  prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let  us  use  it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good”. (Romans 12:1‭-‬21 NKJV).

Never Stop Trusting in God…

-Have you been going through some things for a long time and it seems as if its not getting any better?

-God has not forgotten you. Speak to Him and let Him know that you are still trusting in Him and waiting upon Him. 

Psalm 37:4-5

 Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart. 

 Commit your way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 

Psalm 3:5 

Trust in the LORD with all of your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. 

-Don’t worry about how and when the Lord will do it or make it happen. Just know that He will do it. 

Psalm 27:14 

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. 

-Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

LET GOD HAVE HIS WAY

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled”.( 2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 NKJV).

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—(Ephesians 6:10‭-‬18 NKJV).

WHY WORRY, WHEN GOD GOT IT

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Philippians 4:6-9

BRETHREN
Colossians 4:2-6.
Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

ANGER MANAGEMENT  

-Stay away from Anger.. 

  It hurts ..Only You! 

“Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in the bosom of fools”. (Ecclesiastes 7:9 NKJV).

“A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self-confident. A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, And a man of wicked intentions is hated”. (Proverbs 14:16‭-‬17 NKJV).

-If you are right then there is no need to get angry, 

-And if you are wrong then you don’t have any right to get angry. 

“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in  it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world”.(James 1:19‭-‬27 NKJV).

-Patience with family is love,

-Patience with others is respect. 

 -Patience with self is confidence and Patience with GOD is faith. 

-Never Think Hard about the PAST, It brings Tears…

-Never worry about the FUTURE, It brings Fears… 

-Live this Moment with a Smile, It brings Cheers.

-Every test in our life makes us better,

-Every problems that come to make us and not break us, 

-The choice is ours whether we become victims or victorious.

Chose Victory.

-Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful.

-Do you know why God created gaps between fingers? 

-So that someone special to you can fill those gaps by holding your hand forever.

-Happiness keeps You Sweet..But being sweet brings happiness to others

-You are greatly blessed, highly favored, and deeply loved.

CONTROL  YOUR THOUGHTS  

Don’t  allow  the devil  to put any negative  thoughts  in your mind,you have the power  and authority  to recognize,reject ,and renounce  anything  that’s  contrary  to God’s  words, and plans for your life.

What are you feeding your mind,for it to conto your thoughts , what  you put in,is what you will get. What you plant man water in your mind,you will receive . So if you put garbage  in,garbage  will come out,and there’s  something  you need to know .  God knows  it before you even think  it,and He is holding  you responsible  for your thoughts , which means you can ,and have control  over your thoughts  .

REMEMBER  

“Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord , And He will have 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,” says the Lord . “For  as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts”. (Isaiah 55:7‭-‬9 NKJV).

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled”. ( 2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 NKJV).

“O Lord , You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there  is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord , You know it altogether”.(Psalms 139:1‭-‬4 NKJV).

“Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.  But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.  For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”(Matthew 12:34‭-‬37 NKJV).

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks”. (Luke 6:45 NKJV).

THIS  IS  HOW,GOD WANTS US  TO  THINK  
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”. (Philippians 4:8 NKJV).

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”(Joshua 1:8‭-‬9 NKJV).

REMEMBER YOUR THOUGHTS DICTATES TO YOU:

How you function and operate in life. Simply put, What you think, believe ,and say has a lot to do with how your life is situated. 

Proverb 23:7 

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…

Philippians 4:8-9.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Mark 11:23

For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says. 

-Negative speaking and believing brings about negative things. 

-Bad speaking and believing brings about bad things.

-Doubting and speak unbelief brings you nothing, and causes no change to your situation. 

-Positive speaking and believing brings about positive things. 

-Good speaking and good believing brings about good things. 

-Think positive beliefs and speak positive words (God’s Words). This gives God what He needs from you to work in your life and change things for the better. 

-Blessed you are and bless you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen! 

LET’S  PRAY  

I decree, right now, “that whatever has been holding you down…whatever has been afflicting or humiliating you…whatever has been against your peace, your progress, your job or career, your business or your children…You are breaking forth today! You will never, ever be disgraced or in a shameful condition again, in Jesus’ Name! AMEN.

A Man’s Daily Prayer

Abba Father, My God, My Lord. Good morning! Thank you for hearing my prayer, for being interested in
the thoughts and concerns of my heart this day. Who am I, Lord, that you think of me all day long? (Psalm 8:4), Philippians 4:6). I am your son, coming to you, Abba, to hear your voice again today (John 10:27, Psalm 5:3, 85:8).

Father, in spite of my struggle to put off the old man (Ephesians 4:21-24) , You still make me clean, holy and acceptable to You through Your Begotten Son, my Savior, Brother and Friend, Jesus. By His Sacrificial Love on the Cross, He exchanged my sinful old man, for a righteousness new man (Colossians 3:10, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 2 Corinthians 5:17).

I am now accepted, affirmed and approved by You (Ephesians 1:4-7).
I am in awe that “Your gentleness has made me great” (Psalm 18:35, ESV). You told me I am Your son and You enjoy talking with me ((Psalm 2:7, Philippians 4:6-8).

Lord Jesus, I enter in today’s work place thanking You for the gifts You have given me because You love me. Wherever the flame of my gifts has dwindled, I pray that You strengthen me, as I fan the flame of these gifts by setting my mind on Spirit-Filled manhood (2 Timothy 1:6, Ephesians 1:3, 2 Peter 1:3) (1 Peter 2:21, 4:1-2).
I earnestly desire and ask this day, for an extra measure of:
Your Spirit of a Sound Mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
The Spirit of Self Control (Galatians 5:23, 2 Peter 1:6).
The Spirit of Strength. (Isaiah 11:2, 2 Timothy 1:7, Ephesians 3:16).
The Spirit of Sacrificial Love (Galatians 5:23, Ephesians 3:17-19).
The Spirit of Sonship (Romans 8:15-16, Galatians 4:4-7).

I receive this, by Your Holy Spirit, to restore, firmly fix, strengthen and establish me in Your Love (Chesed).
By authority in Christ I renounce any feelings left of unworthiness, guilt or regret by the power of the
Cross. I now step firmly into trusting your will, to co-labor with me in my work today that it may bring
You glory.

I now believe & confess to possess the Spirit of the Sound mind as I choose to set my
mind on Your Will & Word as reality (Romans 8:5-7, Colossians 3:2). I am a focused & (Isaiah 26:3)
content man (Philippians 4:11) whose mind is orderly, whole & guarded by the peace of Christ (Philippians 4:7).

I receive Your Spirit of Self-Control as I choose, by the discipline of Grace, to say
“No” (Titus 2:11-12) to any lazy, sinful, or destructive thoughts that hinder me or lead into temptation. By Your authority, I lead captive, every thought, till it obeys Your Word (2 Corinthians 10:5). I practice this, till it becomes natural in me! I choose to exchange affections for this world, for my affection for You Father. I am a consistent and self-controlled man (James 4:4, Colossians 3:2, Romans 12:2).

I receive Your Spirit of Strength. The power in me, used for your Glory, I choose, to courageously trust Your kindness as I confidently walk & work as though your strength is in me, whether I feel it, see it, or not, Almighty Father.

I receive Your Spirit of Love as I choose to live & love as a sacrificial man (Romans 12:1) and put my wife, children and brother’s needs before mine. For no greater love has any man, than to put his own desires in submission to that of another (Ephesians 5:21, Philippians 2:3-5, John 15:13).

I receive Your Spirit of Sonship, Abba, as Your Fatherly acceptance and approval of me overwhelms my intellect and divinely disarms doubt in my heart. I choose to accept Your forgiveness (1John 1:9) and Your Covenant of Love for me, which esteems me a successful son, of the King of the Universe,
who is my Father.

I am a chosen son, in whom You are well pleased. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen
