FEAR

Fear is so prevalent in our society today.  All you have to do is turn on the TV or search the internet and you will see fear everywhere!  But, did you know that fear is the devil’s way of keeping you in bondage? When we allow fear into our lives, it can birth into other nasty emotions, such as worry, stress and discouragement.

  • The fear of the unknown.
  • The fear of “what ifs”.
  • The fear of not having enough.
  • Fear of war, diseases and the economy.

We all have moments of fear or doubt.  In all honesty, most people fear things that most likely will never happen to them.  The problem with fear is that it can really take a grip on you.  You can find yourself in such a state that you stop doing the very things you have loved to do in the past.

But, what does the Bible say about fear?  Proverbs 29:25 says, “The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.”

God is specifically telling us to lean and trust in Him because we are safe.  It doesn’t take a lot of faith or constant prayer.  Just tell God about the things you are fearing and let them go.  The one thing we really need to understand is that God has everything under control.

So…RELAX!  The battle is His and it is already WON!  Just seek the Lord and let Him take care of the rest, for fear has no place in your life.  Live, Love, Laugh and be Happy!  Life has so much to offer – REACH OUT and GRAB IT!

Yoke Breaking – Burden Removing

1john-4_17

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. There is nothing too big or too small for Him to tackle on our behalfs. We might be experiencing difficulties within our own lives or feel some aches and pains within our bodies; however, if we can turn on focus and see Jesus in every situation…life will take on a whole new meaning and outcome because everything has already been defeated.

It is important to remind ourselves that Jesus is healthy, kind, humble, loving, forgiving, rich, truth, filled with wisdom and has more than enough. Let’s break it down and look at it in it’s simplest form…

  • Is Jesus plagued with cancer, diabetes, or any illness? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Does Jesus have aches and pain in His body? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Is Jesus weak or concerned? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Is Jesus worried about paying bills or where the financing will come from?  NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Is Jesus just barely getting by in life? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Does Jesus worry about what others think or say about Him? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Is Jesus worried about what He looks like or have any image problems? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Is Jesus worried about who the next President will be? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Does Jesus fret over where His next meal will come from? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Is Jesus barely making ends meet? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!
  • Does Jesus worry about His past or worry about something He did? NO! So as He is, so are we in this world!

Jesus loves us completely. He is full of truth and wisdom; and that truth and wisdom lives within us. Jesus is our water-walker! He is our yoke-destroying, burden-removing love that overcame everything on our behalf. Don’t let another moment go by without seeing Jesus’ victory. For there is not one thing that can come against you that hasn’t already been defeated. Let go and let Jesus’ victory replace your situation. Speak His truth in your life for His word will not return void. Victory is yours today, tomorrow and forever! As He is, so are we in this world!

God of Hope

Calm the StormAround the world, believers are facing some of the most difficult times they have ever encountered. They are struggling through adversity from every angle. Physically, financially, spiritually, mentally and emotionally shaken to their very core. It has been the worst of times for most. Yet through it all, they have reasons to dig their heels in and hold on for dear life; knowing that the stormy seas can’t last forever.

The devil knows that his time is almost up. He is doing everything in his power to make you give up. He wants to make sure that you don’t make it to the other side. He doesn’t want you to see your victory, your healing or your prosperity. He knows that if he can make you change your course, then he can put some distance between you and your God-given future. But, the devil is a liar! (John 8:44)

don't give up1God has seen you holding on for dear life. He has seen the storms raging against you. He has seen every tear shed and heard every word you’ve spoken. He knows that you are at the end of your rope. Yet, God also knows that through all of your pain and suffering, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The devil has had his time and the bell is ringing to its end. God is about to reverse the curse in your life and make such an impact; that every single one of your enemies will flee.

There is an old saying, “don’t get your hopes up”. Well, that too is a lie.

Our God is the God of hope. He wishes to fill you with such joy and peace that the Holy Spirit will be overflowing with hope. (Romans 15:13) But God doesn’t stop there. He says “your hope will never leave you ashamed.” (Romans 5:5)

So, expect the unexpected. Expect God’s promises to come to pass in your life today. Hope beyond fear. Fill your mind with God’s goodness and love. For when God’s mighty hand comes upon your life, you will be standing tall. Your testimony will be so great, people will want to know what has happened. They will want to know how your life suddenly changed.

Keep embracing HOPE. Keep dreaming BIG dreams.

You are about to encounter God’s goodness like never before!

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.
