Carving Out Time for Christ #perfectingourfaith

Philippians 1:6 Amplified Bible (AMP)I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].

The Apostle Paul was convinced that, without doubt, Christ would bring assurance with every act of love and kindness towards us. This is the case today. Nothing has changed. God’s Will is done in our lives! God knew you and I before we were even formed in our mother’s womb. There’s nothing that escapes Him.

What He started, He will finish! He’s making us better. He’s molding us through every life experience. We don’t always understand His Will at the time that the situation arises; it’s somewhere in the middle to end of the circumstance that we begin to gain an understanding of why something took place. Sometimes God will allow something to happen to you so that He can show you how He has all power and can do what is seemingly impossible.

What if we took more time sitting at Christ’s feet to learn about Him, thus allowing Him to reveal to us things about ourselves, to gain clarity and insight?

What if we put our phones down for at least 30 minutes a day and use that time to communicate to Christ through prayer, praise and worship? What do you think the impact would be if we said no to going out and instead we stay in to do some Biblical studying?

The more time we dedicate to Christ, the more we are perfected. The more time that we dedicate to Christ, the less time the enemy can run circles around us trying to trap us in lack of faith; the more we become positioned to win the fight set before us.

Take some time during the rest of the week to give Christ more time. I guarantee the return on investment!

Worn Out, Still Got #FAITH

God, I’m worn out sometimes, well it feels that way. Waiting on God to do His thing in my life is a struggle sometimes. Waiting strengthens our souls and equips us with the Yes we need to give unto God.

(Just think, I wrote this blog post in 2014 and now it still applies) – A Heavy Reminder! All that God has done since 2014, all the ways that He’s made out of no way! All the bridges He made so that I could get to my blessings! Everything that He’s supplied!

His promises have and will always be YES & AMEN concerning His children!

The question is do you believe God? Yes, God I believe! I survived because of you! I’m alive because Your Promises must be fulfilled towards me, towards us! Thank You, Oh Lord! The opportunity to give you thanks is a privilege!

God is saying: Pick your head up! Look up! Whatever you need, God is going to do it when you believe that He can do anything but fail! You’re a victor and not a victim! What will you believe God for? Don’t delay your blessings because you lack the faith it takes for it to be released from the Spirit Realm unto you!

What got you worrying? Release it to The Lord! Give it over to The Master! He will turn your sorrow into long-lasting joy!

Today’s Scriptures:

I am worn out waiting for your rescue,
but I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:81
New Living Translation (NLT)

2 Corinthians 1:20 New International Version “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.”

Joshua 23:14 NIV
“Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.

Five Minute Read for A Lifetime Return #fearGod #delivered #setfree

In the 34th Chapter of Psalms, it’s seen that God gives simple concepts to securing that we never want or need anything. The requirement is simple but complex: we’ve got to FEAR Him.

To fear God is to reverence Him, to acknowledge that He, alone, is God above all Gods, that He has ALL POWER, SEES AND KNOWS ALL, IS ALL AND IS EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME! To fear Him means that His Word has been made sacred in your heart. We are subject to obedience because we fear Him.

God wants you to have the things that you want and need. Isn’t it interesting how God says “want” instead of “need?” This means that He’s got everything concerning you, not just your needs, but also your wants. Those needs and wants must align with His Will for your life!

How do we know if they align with what God wants for our lives? We must stay in communication with Christ. Yes, prayer is needed. Communication is two-way. We ask or talk to God but we don’t take the time to hear the response or we’re not willing to do the things that God has required of us before we can receive our breakthroughs, our deliverance.

A Listening Ear: Try going to God with a listening ear. Drown out all of the other noises that create confusion and havoc in our lives and instead focus on the fundamental sound of Christ.

Since we are His Children, He assures us that we know His voice but we get so caught up in looking for the stars that we miss the Sun (Son)! John 10:27-28

How do you fear Him? I’ve asked this already but the question is so important. Keeping God’s Commandments is a part of fearing God! If you find it hard, it’s ok, God knows. We must make a conscious effort to sin less.

The other “fear” mentioned in this 34th Chapter has to do with our physical and Spiritual fears (Psalm 34:4 KJV). God delivers us from them! Read it for yourself.

God won’t beg you to become FREE!

Today’s Scriptures:

Psalm 34: 4,7,9 KJV | King James Version

  •  I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. (verse 4)
  • The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. (verse 7)
  • O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. (verse 9)

God’s Value for You!

what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings[a]
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under his feet,

Psalm 8:4-6 ESV | English Standard Version

I’m Still Holding On: God’s Release Is Coming! #hanginthere

How do you keep momentum when it seems that everything is working against you?

God wants you to stay focused because the next season of your life is dependent on what you’re developing now. This is the season to work on your relationship with Christ. This is the season to ask God to remove the scales from your eyes! This season is to ask God to remove things that aren’t like Him, from our hearts & minds.

It’s very important that we take the time to read His Holy Bible, meditate, pray, fast, praise, and worship Christ. REPEAT. Thus, letting God know that we’ve made the decision to trust Him, completely. By now, we should’ve noticed that there is no other option!

Most people want the move of God but don’t want to obey the mandates; these acts are the prerequisite for walking into greener pastures.

One mandate is to accept Him, the Father, Christ, the Son, and The Holy Spirit. Another mandate is to love His people. Then, there’s the “laying aside of every weight” mandate (sin that acts as a distraction).

People of God, in order to keep God’s blessings flowing in our lives, we must fall subject to obedience, that is, understanding that God requires us to move out of the way to allow room for Him in our hearts & minds.

Our sins act as barriers between our current situation and our provisions. In tandem, our gratitude is due unto God because He provides an escape route from every temptation. Take the exit!

1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV | New International Version

E. Nelson

This week, put all of your attention into measuring where you are in the acts of obedience to God. It’s time to obey God, NOW, because we may not have another opportunity!

Obeying God takes precedent, right now, so that when the Move of God happens in our lives, we’re prepared to grab it and keep it! We won’t be frivolous, throwing our breakthroughs away because we now understand the Kingdom’s mandate on our lives!

Be encouraged! Tomorrow isn’t promised.

Nowadays, later in the afternoon isn’t even promised.

Choose Christ while you’ve got breath in your body! Come back to Christ, now! Don’t worry about what people may think or say about you. Just come to Christ!

Accept Him so that you can walk in the beauty of Holiness and embrace Our Father as Savior, Deliverer, Rescuer, Healer, Problem-Solver, and True Friend. There is liberty (freedom) in walking towards Christ! Your pockets begin the process of cleaning so that you make room for all things being new!

Will you give your life to Christ? Don’t you know that time isn’t guaranteed? Your focus, your intent is to learn of Christ, absorbing His strength and power so that you can continue to run towards Heaven, that is, leaving behind satan.

For those who have already chosen Christ but have continued to walk into a sin that you know in your heart that you’ve been delivered from, will you return unto Christ?

Reconciliation

Now is the time! Now is the time! Now is the time! (the significance of 3 represents power & authority) and also reps The Father, The Son & The Holy Ghost!

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 NIV | New International Version

Isaiah 55:6-7 KJV | King James Version Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
