MEDITATE ON THE WORD

“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

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 1:7‭-‬9 NKJV).

“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

RIGHTEOUSNESS  

Do you think,that you are righteous ?

Isaiah 64:6-9 says:

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. But now, O Lord , thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Be not wroth very sore, O Lord , neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place”.(II Chronicles 7:14‭-‬15 NKJV).

TO BE RIGHTEOUS, YOU MUST DO WHAT GOD SAYS, LIKE:

“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).

“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

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, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.

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 3:1‭-‬17 NKJV).

FINALLY

“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”. (II Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 NKJV).

SUPERNATURAL  FAITH

“And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification”. (Romans 4:19‭-‬25 NKJV).

Self Encouragement in the Lord
1 Samuel 30:6

Trust all of you in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
•As you continue to keep your mind on the Lord His PEACE will give you strength, stability, security and victory.
•Remember in Matthew 14:29-31
Peter walked on water to go Jesus, but when he took his eyes off of Jesus and more importantly he took his MIND off Jesus and put it on the wind (the situation) he began to sink.
•The LORD is with you. He will never leave you or forsake you. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will tell you “come” like He said to Peter. He will direct your paths.
•Remember those who belong to Christ has His Mind (the Mind of Christ), and in your new mind you think in the fruit of the Spirit. You think Love, Joy, Peace, Goodness, Faithfulness, Self-control… and so on.
•Continue to keep your eyes and your mind on the LORD.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

LOVE IS THE ANSWER

Love is always Holy, Righteous and True.
1 John 4:20
If a man says, I LOVE God, and that man HATES his brother, he is a LIAR: for he that LOVES NOT his brother whom he has seen, how can he LOVE God whom he has NOT seen?
-Why MUST we LOVE one another? Because God COMMANDED us to do so.
John 13:34
A NEW COMMANDMENT I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you…
-Loving one another is not an option. It’s a COMMANDMENT of God!
-No one has to pre-qualify in order to get the Love of God from us. As Children of God Love is who we are and Love is what we do.
-In the ACT of LOVE God reveals Himself to the giver and to the recipient.
-When God reveals Himself in the ACT of LOVE, things will always change for the better because God is Love and Love never fails.

WAY MAKER

The song says that!He is a way maker ,miracle worker,promise keeper , light of the darkness , my God that’s just who He is.

Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
2 Thessalonians 1:6‭-‬10 KJV.

Food For Thought:

“Whoever lives under the shelter of the Most High will remain in the shadow of the Almighty.
Because you love me, I will rescue you.
I will protect you because you know My name.
When you call to me, I will answer you.
I will be with you when you are in trouble.
I will save you and honor you.
I will satisfy you with a long life.
I will show you how I will save you.
–Psalm 91:1& 14-16–

LISTEN :God Empowers the Humble
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
HUMBLE: Not proud or arrogant; to be moderate; to give up your independence, power and will for the Lord’s Will, and for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Humbleness is the precondition for submission.
+When we humbly submit to God we will experience what it’s like to be STRONG in the Lord and in the Power of His Might.
+Submission to God is our most powerful resistance against the enemy.

James 4:7 tells us to :
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
+In our humble submission to God, we are not only resisting the devil, but we are also keeping evil and sins out of our lives, and also giving God what we need to give Him for us to experience His Manifest Presence in our lives.
+God Elevates, Exalt, Lifts up and Promotes the Humble.

James 4:6 says :
But He (God) gives more GRACE. Therefore He says, God resists the proud, but gives GRACE unto the HUMBLE.
However,1 Peter 5:5 tells us to:
…be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resists the proud, and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.
+God gives GRACE to the Humble.
GRACE: God’s Spiritual and Divine influence upon our heart that is reflected in our lives. God’s acceptance of us with His given benefits, favor, and gift with joy, liberality, pleasure and such like things.
2 Peter 1:2 reminds us that:
GRACE and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
+May we always remain HUMBLED in all things for the glory of Christ, and may we always grow in His GRACE, and be found in His GRACE.
•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!

NO FEAR

Psalm 34:4
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
2Tim 1:7
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
1John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.
1. In Christ Jesus we are completely delivered and set free from all fears. The Perfect Love which is the Love of God casts out all fear.
2. NOT living in the Love of God makes us accessible to all kinds of fears.
3. Fear has torment.
4. Fear is a demonic spirit under the rule of satan.
5. When we completely delivered from fears:
A. We will be Bold and Strong in the Lord.
B. We will freely demonstrate love to others and function in the sound mind of Christ.
•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!
