Starting Out Right

As we begin the new year, I thought it was very important to be reminded of HOW AWESOME GOD IS! Without Him, we would be nothing. Without Him, there would be no hope. Without Him, we would not receive healing or restoration. So, let’s start this year out right and remember the significance of the CROSS. By placing Him first in our lives, everything else will be added!

2022 is GOING TO BE YOUR BEST YEAR YET!

Your True Identity

So many of us look at the past and think that is who we are. Do you see yourself through the eyes of betrayal, hurt, rejection, mistakes and pain? If so, you will constantly strive for approval and perfection. That’s the world’s way, not Gods!

Your past does not define you. Wherever you grew up, whatever you did or whatever happened to you is the past and that’s where it needs to stay. Once you became a Child of the Most High, all of your sins and everything that happened in the past goes away. Your true identity lies in Jesus and who He is.

Now when you start seeing Jesus and all of His beautiful attributes, the devil is going to bring up everything in the past to try and make you feel guilty, shameful, hurt, angry and everything else he can try to persuade you that you aren’t worthy. But the devil is a liar!!!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come.” 2 Cor. 5:17

You are a new creature in Christ. His strength, power, love, kindness, freedom, holiness, and righteousness became you. You are a child of the Most High. The one and only true God! You are born again by the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-6). You are saved by grace as a gift, not because of your performance (Ephesians 2:8).

The right to your new life is a gift from God Almighty! You are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14), you will shine like stars in the sky (Philippians 2:15), you are the salt of the earth (Matt. 5:13), you are a vessel of God’s divine light (2Cor 4:6).

That is your identity. Jesus died to give us life and life more abundantly, to make us the head and not the tail, above and not below, to be more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Embrace the new you. You are royalty, an heir to the throne, and God’s loving arms are wrapped around you everywhere you go. You are an amazing person. Don’t look back, continuously look forward. God’s grace, love, power, strength, provision and healing power is upon you. Be the light in this dark world and remind the devil that he is a liar. You are special, loved and highly-favored by God Almighty.

Your Miracle Moment

smiley-chaosHave you been feeling like everything that could gone wrong, has gone wrong? Do you ever feel like no matter what you do, things just aren’t getting better? Does it feel like your prayers have gone unanswered?

So many believers have been struggling. They just can’t seem to get their breakthroughs. Whether you’ve been dealing with sickness, pain, anger, addiction, frustration, debt or anything that has kept you bound and chained for way too long…there is great news for you today!

We may not be able to understand why things have been happening to us or why things keep going terribly wrong, however we can know that God’s timing is always perfect!

Ecclesiastes 8:6: “For there is a time and a way for everything, although man’s trouble lies heavy on him.”

Habakkuk 2:3: “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

Isaiah 40:31: “But they who wait for 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.”

For those who are determined to wait for the Lord’s timing, it can be a very difficult and frustrating time. You can be doing everything you know to do, only to keep hitting roadblocks every step of the way. You could be praying, reading your Bible, spending time with the Lord, tithing and sharing with those in need…only to find yourself constantly fighting your way through the day.

In the Bible, seasons and times are made very clear.

Ecclesiastes 3:1: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”

Galatians 6:9: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

It is a time for renewal, it is time for chains breaking, it is time for loved ones to be touched, it’s a time for financial breakthroughs, it is a time for restoration and healing. God is about to release waves of miracles so great that you won’t have time to catch your breathe. God has the most amazing plan for you and your loved ones.

God has a way, a purpose, and perfect timing. Ask God to give you wisdom. Ask God to show you if there’s anything in your life that needs repentance. Ask God to show you what He would like you to do in preparation. As He begins to guide you, please make sure to walk in faith and do whatever it is He asks of you, without waiting and without doubting. For we are in His amazing hands, guided by His truth, knowing that everything is about to change!

Smiley-Cheerful

Your turnaround is here. God’s historical miracle moments are upon you. Reach out and grab it! It will be the most incredible adventure you could ever be blessed to partake in. God doesn’t just want to heal you ~ He wants to restore everything that has been lost. Whether it’s physical, spiritual, emotional or financial…you won’t have any doubt that God’s hand is moving upon your life. Doors will open, your body will be healed, relationships restored, and dreams will take shape.

God is a God of seasons and perfect timing!

AND this season holds God’s miracle moments.

Anger and The Art of Forgiveness

AngerHave you ever found yourself so angry that you began to shake violently or you wanted to hit or throw something?  Anger can be violent and very disruptive to your life, as well as, those around you.

For when we hold built up anger against others or ourselves, it lingers and tends to grow into a full-blown pity party and you seem to fly off the handle at the little things in life.

Let’s see what scripture has to say:

  • Ephesians 4:31, “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice”.
  • Proverbs 15:1, “A soft answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger”.
  • Proverbs 16:32“Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty…”.

Let those scriptures sink in.  Repeat them.  They sure say a lot, don’t they?  But why would it be so important for God to tell us these things within the Bible?

Sing Out Loud

Because, He knows that this is not a simple task for us. Our human nature tends to hold onto grudges. We like to think that if we treat the individual differently, they will feel our pain or if they can sense our anger towards them, they’ll get the point.  However, nothing could be further from the truth.

When we have a quick temper or say something that we shouldn’t, then it tends to fester as guilt and becomes a vicious cycle.  When we hold onto pain, anger and unforgiveness; all it does is cause sickness and unhappiness within our own lives.  We are clearly told in Colossians 3:13, that we should “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you.  Remember, the Lord forgave you so you must forgive others.”

Now, we all know that we are not perfect and we certainly make mistakes.  There was only one perfect person that ever existed and that was Jesus.  So, the best thing we can do is learn how to control anger and learn the art of forgiveness, His way.  It is imperative that we make HIM a big part of the equation.  It is completely for our benefit, not for anyone else.

The absolute best thing you can do when you find yourself angry or unwilling to forgive is to STOP YOUR THOUGHTS AND HOLD YOUR TONGUE.  Immediately, ask God to help you overcome the situation, release it to Him for transformation and ask for Him to fill you with peace that surpasses all understanding. It is also best to hold your tongue rather than to regret your words later.  For it is written that the power of the tongue brings life or death.(Proverbs 18:21)

Word of Caution…the more you attempt to release things to God, the more negative thoughts you will encounter.  Do not allow yourself to relive the situation over and over again. Just keep stopping the thoughts, ask God to take them off your shoulders and to be filled with His peace.

ForgivenessLet me emphasis that I have experienced all of this and it is not an easy task. However, I promise that if you stand against your opposition by giving it all over to God and filling your mouth with praises for Him…you will notice that the burdens begin to lift and your anger, pain and frustration will subside.  Things will begin to roll off your back and you won’t sweat the small stuff either.  God is bigger than any problem, that I can guarantee you!
