Save the world with the Lord!

“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” ~ John 3:17

Quick and simple !!! For those who know the truth, free they should be. For those who know the truth, should be shedding truth to those who are unaware. We should be meeting truth with truth. It might not be easy but it is possible. Those who debate you with the truth you are giving, could be doing it for many reasons. Some examples are;

*they probably had a bad experience regarding the topic

*it could be a test of your faith, trust, and believe in the Lord

*the way you delivered the message

*they are probably very aware of the context and felt like it was given incorrectly

*it’s possible they just don’t care

*it might not be their season to understand what you are sharing, but it doesn’t excuse you from not sharing the gospel

As we can see there is an endless list of excuses, but yet no excuse to not share the love of God. There is no reason to not shed love. There is no reason to not shed hope, and faith toward someone.

Whether we feel like we are ready to take that step, isn’t up to us. The Lord encourages us to pick up our cross and follow him. He encourages us to spend the gospel to every ear. He doesn’t say if they want to listen, if they meet a certain requirement, if they ask for it or not. He said to just speak and he will fill your mouth with what you need to say.

In that note love and don’t judge! We get nothing out of judging besides judging ourselves. The moment you point the finger, you are causing fingers to get pointed at you. Your thoughts upon someone else, are your thoughts about yourself. So let’s help save the world with the Lord.

When in doubt pray until the Lord reveals answers, confirmation, and direction! When in doubt prayer will get you out !

It’s not disqualification; it’s redirected.

Your sins,

Your past,

Your failures,

Your setbacks,

Your temporary pit-hole,

Your confusion,

Your lack of understanding,

Your mis-position,

Your lack of motivation,

All of these unfortunate situations are more of a blessing than you can ever imagine. You could be wrong in many areas in your life and the Lord will always come in ready to fix it. We are a working progress under God’s eyes. No matter how much we try to be perfect, we will always fall short. When we fall short for any of the reasons listed above, we forget to see how powerful that moment is due to lack of acknowledge. No one likes to acknowledge that their wrong or mess up. Which is why they struggle so hard getting out of their mess. The beauty is in the acknowledgment. When we can admit to our wrong doings, the Lord can begin to move in our favor.

Every mess up is another lesson to master! Every setback is another leverage that God will use to place you where you must stand. Every confusion is a moment where God will reintroduce himself and remind you who he really is. Every failure is a chance for God to give you a different method to conquer that goal. Every past is a must for your future to be as bright as what it is today. Every mis-position is a chance for the Lord to built up your endurance and faith for you could be ready for your promise land. Every temporary pit-hole is a chance for God to give you new instruments to dig yourself out. Every lack of understanding is a chance to get deeper into the word of God.

Don’t you see how fortunate are theses moments of unfortunates? God will never disqualify you from running this race. He will never disqualify you from getting to know him. He will never disqualify you from the position he has placed you. He will never disqualify you from every ministry he let you borrow. He will never disqualify you!

However God will redirect you if he saw it was a must! He could redirect you to a better location than your present. He can redirect you to give you more time to flourish. He can redirect you to reveal more of his glory to you in a special way. He can redirect you to remind you where he has pulled you from. He can redirect you to promote you. He can redirect you for you can remain firm in his walk. He can redirect you to built your faith and endurance while being steadfast in his presences. He can redirect you to make sure he won’t lose you. HE WILL REDIRECT YOU TO NOT LOSE YOU. HE WANTS YOU BUT DOESN’T NEED YOU. HE RATHER YOU BE IN HIS PRESENCE THAN OUT OF IT. HE WANTS TO NEED YOU BECAUSE HE SEES PAST WHAT YOU SEE IN YOURSELF. HE SEES THAT YOU ARE MORE EQUIPPED TO HELP HIM COMPLETE THE MISSION HERE ON EARTH. HE SEES THAT HE CAN USE YOU TO BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD. HE CAN SEE THAT WHEN YOU HAVE HIM YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE AND UNCONTAINED WITH NO RESTRICTIONS, BUT HAVE THE PERSEVERANCE TO ENDURE ALL FORCES THAT COME YOUR WAY. HE SEES YOU AND BECAUSE HE SEES YOU, HE WANTS YOU !!!!

THE LORD WANTS US MORE THAN WHAT WE CAN EVER IMAGINE! FOR THIS HE WILL NEVER DISQUALIFY YOU BUT WILL REDIRECT YOU AS MUCH AS HE BELIEVE HE NEEDS TO!

Blessings brothers and sisters 😊

Worship is a lifestyle 🙌🏼

“One of the hardest parts about ministry, or any other role in life that we immensely enjoy, is that our internal parameters are hard to find. Because it’s enjoyable to work hard and experience results, it can be difficult to know when it’s time to clock in and clock out. But, like anything, we need to have a day of rest. If God needed a day of rest then certainly we do also.” ~ Havilah Cunnington

The word “rest” for whatever reason always get swept under the rug when working for the Kingdom of God. We get so carried away on making sure that we are moving and doing everything that God wants us to do. We get bombarded with all the responsibilities that comes with the position that the Lord has blessed us in. We are so fueled with the thought that the Lord is using us, and want the momentum to keep going. Then we have our moments where our thought wants to remind us of all those counting on this vision or outcome. Little by little life spins it and creates this nonstop route of a circle in our life. When we finally decide to hit the brakes which is usually when we had enough; we realize that we been driving in this circle for too long. We realize that we haven’t gotten far but we’re continually retracing our steps. We realize that we are right back where we have started. Unfortunately we exhausted ourselves overthinking what God has given us and how we are going to run it; than moving and trusting that if he gave it, he will guide it.

It’s important to remember that it’s ok to hit the break paddle when needed. Working for God is by far one of the best things we can experience. However when we focus on working nonstop and not doing the self care steps that he provided; we end up halving all his works. It’s ok to rest. It’s ok to step back and look and redirect your methods. It’s ok to express the need of help. All these things are ok. What’s not ok is working nonstop with no boundaries and giving up on what God has called you to do, all at once.

The Lord remains is in scripture;

“Better is a little with the fear of the LORD Than great treasure and turmoil with it.” ~ Proverbs 15:16

“The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.” ~ Isaiah 26:3

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” ~ Philippians 4:6

“And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” ~ Exodus 33:14

“And the work of righteousness will be peace, And the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.” ~ Isaiah 32:17

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” ~ Matthew 11:28-30

The way we work in God’s kingdom is an expression of our worship life. Worship is not singing or dancing in the alter only. Worship is a lifestyle. Worship is when all of you lives according to the Lord. When all of you wants to please the Lord with your life.

Is all of you worshipping the Lord in everything ?

Let worship be a lifestyle rather a scheduled expression.

“To worship You I live, to worship You I live, I live to worship You.” ~ Israel Houghton

Friday’s Fix: Fix Your Covenant


Wednesday Worship 1/10/18

We are in times were speaking has become a form of rebellious. Many have just stayed silent because they get more help. Those who speak get punished. It amazes me that todays society rather hear and support lies than the truth. But for those who are called to speak; please speak. It’s unfair in many ways when you don’t voice what God has given you. When we rebel against God we see his wrath! When we keep things to ourselves we steal other people’s blessings or guidance. What we could have avoided now we have to live through because we didn’t speak. So like the verse above saids; keep on speaking. Doing what God sends us to do is a form of worship and obedience. You could think your doing everything good but if you are not speaking what He is putting in you; that’s you being disobedient.

Below is a song that speaks about voicing the voice of God within you! That many times we fear but truly have nothing to fear.

https://youtu.be/Jd3vuxpMKUM

“The Voyage”

Speak, even if your voice is trembling

Please, you’ve been quiet for so long

Believe, it’ll be worth the risk you’re taking

You’re afraid, but you can hear adventure calling

There’s a rush of adrenaline to your bones

What you make of this moment changes everything

What if the path you choose becomes a road

The ground you take becomes a home

The wind is high, but the pressure’s off

I’ll send the rain wherever we end up, wherever we end up

Set your sights, sailing far beyond familiar

In the rising tide, you’ll find the rhythm of your heart

And lift your head, now the wind and waves don’t matter

I am the wind in your sails

I am the wind in your sails

I am the wind in your sails

Blessings!

Monday’s Mission: BE AN ANT!

Whenever mission is involved or desired there’s a few things to keep in mind!

Preparation is key! When you prepare while, you can resist stronger! You can execute in an appropriate time frame, and make every second count! You can target exactly what you are aiming for! Mostly importantly you will have a higher successful rate than fail attempts.

Preparation is very much needed and involved in our daily life. Work, school, homes, relationships/marriages, churches, communities, traveling, studying, and personal goals all require preparation! It’s almost impossible to live and say you never encountered this conversation or act while alive. That’s how much power being prepare has.

Keep in mind that preparation exist for people won’t experience so many failures or negative outcomes.

“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.”

Proverbs 6:6-8 NIV

There are many examples of how we should prepare but this one is my favorite!!!! Be an ant and prepare off season for when your season comes your ready !!! Preparation is key to surviving!!!! I’m not saying prepare by making a 10 year goal list. However whatever is in your power at the moment to prepare for, do it! We want to be caught working and not being lazy. So don’t be afraid to prepare yourself for anything. Be more afraid of not being prepare.

Blessings!

Soul Food Saturday:Be consistent in your season.

Seasons. Some are good, and some are very very difficult. This is how I see seasons.

Seasons are a reflection of how prepared you were and weren’t. Regardless of how good or difficult the season is, I strongly believe that the Lord allows it because you are strong to overcome it. Some seasons are there for two separate reason. Either your going to grow from it or receive confirmation on the path your taking. Growth and confirmation. You either didn’t know what you encountered, or you always knew but doubted what you knew. Growth and confirmations are what seasons give us. Seasons are not meant to kill our spirit but built it up. Your season is what awakes you to keep burning that fire within for the Lord. To keep holding on when you have nothing to hold on. To keep hoping, loving, praying, seeking, seeing, remembering everything God has shown you in private.

Keeping a fire burning is one of the hardest things to do. Keeping it burning through seasons when the winds just want to blow you away. Keeping it burning when you don’t have all the things to keep lighting it up. It takes strategy and time to start a fire but it takes less than a second to blow it off. However that less than a second, was less than a second you didn’t care about it. If you can let a certain season turn off your fire instead of stirring it; then you had no passion when you first started it up. When you involve passion into everything you do for the Lord, nothing could ever stop you from sticking it out. Yes you will have days where you will question, want to give up, doubt, be confused, cry, upset; you will feel all these things. However none of these emotions will be able to move you where God has called you into.

When God brings you to a land that either you prayed for or didn’t; don’t let no one turn off your fire! This land is just another season you will need to get through for the next one.
-Remember to keep your eye sight on the things above and not on things from the earth (Colossians 3:2).
-The peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
-When emotions overshadow your purpose; remember you walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
-The only way you will ever survive any season you walk in, is by living by faith (Romans 1:17).
-Don’t lose your trust in the Lord ever. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6).

So whatever you are going through good or bad, keep going through it. Don’t try to find a short cut, or run from it. You might not see it now or feel it; but your reward is on the end of it. The only way to reach that reward is going through the season. Be constant in your season. You won’t alway be comfortable but you can always be constant. When your uncomfortable, thats God breaking walls down for you. He’s breaking the walls that held you hostage for so long. The walls that never let you pass on to the next side, next level, next promotion; closer to God.

When you could be consistent in your season, you find purpose! A purpose that is impossible for you to let go because He will never let you go in return. Being consistent within your purpose will keep the fire burning for the Lord!

Blessings!
