Keep The First Thing First

When we teach children how to go from crawling to walking their first steps, we expect them to stumble. We expect them to take time to learn how to walk on their own. It takes patience, kindness and love as the children learn and grow. God is like that too. He is a loving and kind Father.

As we begin to walk with God, it takes time to read HIS WORD, learn HIS WAYS and obtain HIS KNOWLEDGE. He isn’t angry with us. He understands that our spiritual growth takes time to cultivate and grow. He bandages us up and continues working in our lives, all the while He is patient and stays with us until we reach our destination.

As we read in Proverbs 4:1-9, we are told to pay attention in order to gain and to know intelligent discernment, comprehension and interpretation for God gives us good doctrine. While we grow in our abilities to rightly divide and understand God’s word, we are not to forsake His teachings or corrections. It is written that we are to hold fast to His word, keep His commandments and we shall live.

The first and most important thing is get skilled, godly wisdom and understanding. By walking with God and reading His word, WISDOM will be added. But why is wisdom so important?

Wisdom leads to understanding, discernment, comprehension and interpretation. She keeps, defends and protects you. Proverbs 4:8, says to prize Wisdom highly and exalt her, and she will exalt and promote you; she will bring you to honor when you embrace her. She shall give to your head a wreath of gracefulness; a crown of beauty and glory will she deliver to you. Proverbs 4:13 says take hold of instruction and do not let go. Guard her for she is your life.

So in other words, Wisdom will always lead you to God’s best. Wisdom will guide you in all things. You will know how to rightly handle money, friends, family, commitments. She will lead you to make right choices.

Wisdom is life. Seek first the Kingdom and everything else shall be added. Read the Word, hear the Wisdom, get knowledge and discernment for they will fill your life with wonderful outcomes.

Life can get so busy that we forego reading the Bible and instead start watching teachings online or on the television. However there are many false prophets in the world today. They may be giving you only a small fraction of the truth that keeps you in a defeated pattern. The only true way of knowing God and having Him fill your life with sustainable truth is by reading HIS WORD yourself.

God’s Word is the truth and is worth reading every single day. It brings life, revelation, breakthroughs, miracles, healing, Wisdom, discernment and understanding. Isn’t that worth turning off the television, the internet or the video games to spend time with the Creator of the Universe who knows you better than you know yourself?

Don’t miss your moment. Keep First Things First! Get into the Word today and allow HIM to cultivate you. Be filled with Wisdom and all she offers. You will not be disappointed and your life will be filled with much greater things than you ever believed possible.

His Anointing Makes The Difference

Almost every believer in Jesus has been attacked lately. Whether it’s in your health, finances, family, friends, work, business or any other area of your life, it’s been a difficult time. Some of us have been attacked so much that when looking at the circumstances, you wonder how in the world will the mess change.

And the good news is…It will be by His anointing.

Your circumstances may look bleak. However if you are being attacked or you have no idea how in the world things are going to change, then you are primed for God to move mightily in your life. One small touch from Him and life changes in an instant.

God created us from dirt. He raised Lazarus from the dead. He took Joseph from the pit to the palace. Job lost everything and become more prosperous than he ever was before. And all it took was God’s anointing to dramatically change their lives.

We’re loved by the most Holy, Creative, Loving Heavenly Father who has unlimited resources! You may not see a way out but He does. The question is not about how things are going to change but how will you use the changes to impact those around you. Will you testify His goodness to touch someone else’s life? Will you use the resources He has given you to advance His Kingdom? Will you do what He asks you to do?

That one small touch changes everything.

Isaiah 58:8 “Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”

Think of it this way…before Moses was sent to help God’s people overcome and be released from Egypt, they were treated as slaves. They lost their land and possessions. They were abused, beaten and driven to exhaustion. But God had other plans for them. It took God’s anointing to take them from slaves to walking out of slavery with treasures and wealth. You could say they went from the pit to success and wealth.

So don’t think for a moment that God has forgotten you. Your wilderness may have been long suffering filled with pain, sorrow and hurt. But we serve a MIGHTY GOD whose touch can take you from the pit to restoration in a blink of an eye. It will be so overwhelmingly powerful that it will automatically get people’s attention; which in turn will give you an opportunity to glorify our Heavenly Father!

Will you be ready to do God’s will when His anointing comes upon you? HE IS A GOOD GOD and everything will be alright! Your breakthroughs are coming, just hold on and be prepared to glorify HIM!

People Pleasers

There are so many demands and peer pressure in our world today.  If I asked you, “Who are you?” would you answer with your job title?  Would you answer with the sport you play?  Would you answer the way your friends or family see you?  What would you say?

More time than not, you would answer this question quickly and with some sort of a title.  But do you really know who you are and what truly makes you happy?

I ask this question because there are way too many people trying to be something they are not.  They want to fit in with the crowd.  They want to look like someone else.  They want to be popular.  But, the problem with this is that most are unhappy deep within themselves.  I can tell you from experience that it never is all its cracked up to be nor can you please everyone.

As Christians, we tend to be “yes” people.  Yes, I’ll help you.  Yes, I’ll be there.  Yes, I can do that project.  And so on.  Unfortunately, most of us take on too many obligations which create pressure and stress within our own lives; losing the very essence of who we are.

When we try to please people around us, we tend to make them happy while making ourselves miserable.  The key here is to learn how to make ourselves happy first.  This is not selfish, by no means.  When we make ourselves happy and be who we really are, then that happiness overflows onto the people around us; creating a wonderful, loving environment that has more impact on others than just trying to fit in.

Let’s see what the Bible says about who we are:

  • We’re a child of the Most High God (John 1:12)
  • We are joint heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17)
  • We are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • You’re a friend of Jesus Christ (John 15:15)
  • You have been chosen by God (Ephesians 1:4)
  • God looks at the heart of a man, not his outward appearance (Samuel 16:7)
  • The king greatly desires your beauty (Psalm 45:11)
  • You are a sweet aroma to God (2 Corinthians 2:15)

If God sees us as a beautiful child then don’t you think the best thing we can do is love ourselves in a meaningful, humble way.  I’m not talking about having an ego and thinking you’re all high and mighty.  What I’m talking about is, loving the person you are, loving yourself just as you are, and knowing that you are beautiful just the way you are.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t wear what everyone else is wearing or you’re not driving the best car or you don’t have the biggest home on the block…what matters is that you are happy from deep within your mind, body and soul.

There are always going to be naysayers or people who want you to be something you are not.  In Romans 12:12, we are specifically told “not to conform to this world…”  For when you are walking in God’s love and loving yourself, it will spill over onto others.  It will bring such peace and joy within your life; you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it before.  In Colossians 3:15 we are told to “be led by peace in making decisions”.  That is so much more important than doing things out of obligations.

Things don’t need to feel like a chore when you help someone.  If it comes from a deep passion within yourself, it will catapult the love you feel onto those around you.  This calm, stable and relaxing state of mind is the ultimate, rewarding experience.  People will notice the change.  People will realize that they too can enjoy life fully and will want to know how you do it.  That’s what it is all about…helping others from this standpoint of peace and leading by example.  It is more powerful than you realize.  Making a difference comes from the love inside of you; knowing who you truly are in Christ and allowing it to flow into others.  We all have received our very own special gifts and abilities (1 Peter 4:10) and we need to walk in these given talents.  It is a very rewarding experience.

SO…TODAY IS A NEW DAY!

EMBRACE YOURSELF!  For when you do, you will become an amazing person that will make a huge difference in the world around you.  For there is no better place to be than walking in your DIVINE DESTINY, being the person you are meant to be.  Believe it!  Live it!  There is no one else like you so stop trying to be like everyone else.

CELEBRATE YOUR UNIQUENESS…YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL!  YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND!
