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).

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!

YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing”.{James 1:2‭-‬4}•••

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.

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

GOD’S EXISTENCE

“To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him? Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It  is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless. Scarcely shall they be planted, Scarcely shall they be sown, Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth, When He will also blow on them, And they will wither, And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble. “To whom then will you liken Me, Or to  whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things, Who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, By the greatness of His might And the strength of His power; Not one is missing. Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord , The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, And to those  who  have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint”.

Isaiah 40:18‭, ‬21‭-‬26‭, ‬28‭-‬31 NKJV).

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen…”
Romans 1:20, NIV
All around you, God’s goodness is on display. The question is do you see it? The scripture talks about how God was in the midst of people, but they knew Him not. Too many times, God is working in our lives, showing us favor, protecting us, sending us healing, but we don’t recognize His goodness. For example, if you’re in a crowded parking lot and a car backs out so you can get a front row space, that’s the goodness of God. If you’re going through a difficult time and a friend stops by out of the blue and cheers you up, that’s the goodness of God.
We have to remember not to take the little things for granted. All through the day we should be saying, “Thank You, Lord, for Your goodness. Thank You for my health. Thank You for my spouse. Thank You for the opportunity that You have given me” Today, be on the lookout for His goodness. Remember, what you seek you will find. Seek Him and thank Him for His faithfulness and blessing upon every area of your life!
Let’s pray:
“Almighty Father God in the name of Jesus through the Holy Spirit, Hallowed be your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as is in Heaven, thank You for every good and perfect gift that You have given me. Thank You for ordering my steps and guiding me with Your Word. I love You and praise You today for Your faithfulness and look forward to the good things You have in store for my future in Jesus’ name I do pray and declare it all. Blessed are we and blessed we will always be and to our Lord Jesus Christ be all the Glory. Amen”
Praise the Lord as we pray for one another
