A thankful heart 

Revelation 4:11 

You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for you have created all things, and  for your PLEASURE they are and were created. 

+God has created all things for His PLEASURE. Is God getting PLEASURE or displeasure from the life we are living?

+We often go to God to ask Him for things for our PLEASURE. 

+How about us going to God and asking Him what can we do that will give Him PLEASURE? 

+To PLEASURE God is to serve Him in His purpose, His will and His desires. For examples:

Mark 12:30

Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. 

John 13:34

Love one another like Christ loves us.

Col 3:23 And whatsoever all of us do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 

+In all our ways acknowledge Him, and give Him thanksgivings, praises and worship. 

+As we continue to serve Him, lets us serve Him only in ways that are pleasing to Him and do the those things that give Him PLEASURE. Amen!

•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 yrou are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

DON’T  ENTERTAIN BAD THOUGHTS 

“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you”. (Proverbs 4:23‭-‬24).

“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 

LISTEN:

“This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. 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 4:17‭-‬32}

FINALLY:

“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)

JUST ASK PRAYERFULLY 

Don’t worry about it. Just Pray about it. 

Don’t pray what you think, pray what the Bible says. That’s what shifts the atmosphere. Start saying what God says and watch it manifest.
+Remember G.A.P.

God Answers Prayers 

Proverb 15:29

The Lord hears the prayers of the righteous. 

Luke 18:1 

Jesus spoke a parable  unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint. 

Ephesians 6:18 

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…

+God our Heavenly Father always wants to hear from us through our prayers to Him. 

+Prayers are the primary means by which we give God access to divinely intervene in our lives, the lives of other, situations and circumstances. 

+God hears our prayers, and He answers them. 

1 Thessalonians 5:17

Pray without ceasing. 

+Answers to our prayers may be delayed, but never denied. 

+Our God may not answer when you expect Him to, but He always delivers on time. 

•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 yrou are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING 

Who are you following  or imitating ? Is that person  following  God,Jesus  or the Holy  Spirit ?  If they are not being  led by the Holy Spirit,then they are of their father  the devil. The Apostle  Paul  said  it best:

“Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ”. (1 Corinthians 11:1)

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you  are  light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.  For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, submitting to one another in the fear of God”. (Ephesians 5:1‭-‬19‭, ‬21)

LET  IT GO

“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 4:30‭-‬32}

“Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must  do.  But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him”. {Colossians 3:5‭-‬10‭, ‬12‭-‬17}
