Agree To Disagree And Live In Harmony.

The phrase for the blog came to me at a meeting at work on diversity. One of the instructors mentioned how she still loved the people in her neighborhood even though they had different beliefs but still shared some things in common. She stayed firm in her belief and agreed to disagree. We as believers in Jesus can share Jesus with people but it doesn’t mean that everyone will accept it. We should live the life of love and let people see the power of God operating through us. God doesn’t force us to do what we don’t want to do. He gives us a choice. Some people wonder why evil happens on earth. It is because the person chose evil and others suffered because of it. God is not a person that He should lie(Numbers 23:19). He can’t give us a choice and then control what others do. It is contradictory to his word. We as believers in Jesus should do the same.

Romans 12:18 NIV If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 

1 Timothy 2:1-3 Easy Read Version: First of all, I ask that you pray for all people. Ask God to bless them and give them what they need. And give thanks. You should pray for rulers and for all who have authority. Pray for these leaders so that we can live quiet and peaceful lives—lives full of devotion to God and respect for him. This is good and pleases God our Savior.

We meet people from all walks of life that are raised differently and view things differently. The greatest commandment is to love. We can share Jesus with people. If they reject it, pray for them and live the life in front of them. I am a concert person. Music unites people no matter what background we have. It is amazing to hear how different songs got someone through challenges or a happy occasion. You see different races and different variety of styles at a concert. To see the love for the artist’s music, and everyone together is all love. It is like living in harmony. We were made to love. Just because someone doesn’t support you because of their belief, doesn’t mean they don’t love you. I love the story my sister tells me about a coworker who didn’t believe in God but they shared the same interest in music. My sister would say to anyone “That is your thing, not mines.” Her coworker now believes in Jesus. She didn’t have to say much to her about her faith. She was just there for her when she was going through a tough time and loved on her. God didn’t send His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him may be saved (John 3:17). It is a true sign that we are of God.

Agree to disagree and live in harmony!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for putting a new song in my heart. God, you have set before me life and death, blessing and cursing. I choose life. I repent for not walking in love and allowing political and religious beliefs to view people in the wrong way, getting into arguments and debates. I pray for all people so I can live a quiet and peaceable life. The greatest commandment is love. I live the life of God’s love. God, you are not willing that any should perish but all come to repentance. God, continue to work on my heart. Help me to see people the way you see them and view things through my spiritual eyes and not the natural eyes. I thank you for the victory in Jesus name. Amen!

Keep Out of Danger And Handle The Anger!

Anger is not a bad thing when it is handled properly. Ephesians 4:26 in the Amplified Version says it best: BE ANGRY [at sin—at immorality, at injustice, at ungodly behavior], YET DO NOT SIN; do not let your anger [cause you shame, nor allow it to] last until the sun goes down.

Healthy anger is being angry at injustice and ungodly behavior that is destroying people, which provokes us to take a stand. Unhealthy anger is everything that irritates you and provokes you to anger, holding things in until you explode. going to bed angry, or depression. My Aunt Mary mentioned that a person’s teaching she listened to said that depression is anger turned inward. We have to confront issues. She has taught me how to be confrontational, to express to someone when they have hurt me, whether it was intentional or not. Talk to a godly counselor, friend, or mentor to deal with your anger.

I observed that when my dad got angry, he would take a drive until he was able to think and judge things clearly. It is also good to write things down and read them out. I would do that and the Holy Spirit would correct me if it was out of line. I vent to God a lot and it has helped me like David would cry out and let God know his current state of mind. Also, praise and worship transforms you and uproots anything that is not like God. The right music is a powerful tool to drive out evil spirits, like David did with playing music for Saul. The wrong type of music can provoke evil behavior. James 1:19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. If we mess up, repent and ask God to help you.

Read 1 Corinthians 13 every day. Love isn’t really love until it is tested. It is easy to love someone that loves you back. I learned a valuable lesson at 16 years of age. At the place I worked for as a summer job, I gave someone 10 dollars and she gave me 10 dollars back the same day. It came to me that I really didn’t give anything because I got it right back. 1 Corinthians 13 says love is patient, which means your patience has to be tested in order for you to be truly patient. Love is kind means when someone is mean to you, you remain kind. Love is not easily angered; there was an opportunity for you to get angry but you controlled yourself. Start viewing 1 Corinthians 13 in that way and ask yourself am I really walking in love? To be an overcomer you have to overcome something. Viewing love in this way will really make you do a heart search.

I have seen a tv show called “Snapped.” These were women who had no prior record, were stand up citizens, but snapped when their lover had an affair and killed that person. It was their a first offense. That is how dangerous not dealing with anger properly is. My Aunt Mary told me about Moses and how he had an anger problem. He parted the Red Sea, was a man of God who got instruction from God, a man who seen the glory of God, but had an anger problem. Moses in the bible disobeyed God and struck the rock when God told Moses to speak to the rock in Numbers 20. Moses was angry with the people because they were disobedient. Because of his anger God told him he would not go into the Promised Land. In Exodus 2, Moses watched his people get beaten by an Egyptian and forced labor on them. When Moses got a chance alone with him, he beat him to death. He hid the Egyptian man’s body in the sand. Someone saw him and Moses ran to keep from getting murdered.

Certain people can test you more than others. We as believers must examine ourselves daily. Joseph in Genesis Chapters 37-50 is a great example of walking in love after all the things his family did to him. He was thrown in prison for something he didn’t do, but still operated his gift. He went from the bottom to the top. He went from being a slave to being a ruler; he was a prisoner to a free man. Joseph kept focusing on God and the purpose he had for him. He remained in love and helped his family during a famine even after his brothers sold him into slavery.

Keep out of danger and handle the anger!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the love you shown us by sending your Son Jesus to die on the cross to save me from sin and death. God, I repent for allowing anger to control me. I examine myself daily concerning living a life of love. I get angry at the devil , injustice and evil causing destruction. I will not be overcome by evil, but I overcome evil with good. I pray for those who spitefully use me and say evil about me. Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do. I let my life of love transform me and the people around me. I overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. I am an overcomer because I overcome every evil done to me and let my life be a living testimony of your goodness and glory. In Jesus name. Amen!

When You Are Under Attack, God’s Got Your Back!

Psalm 3:3 – But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.

God is amazing . God gave my dad the phrase for the blog while reading Psalm 91. Thank God for daily bread and new mercies every morning. Like a natural mother who cares, protects, corrects, gives, and loves their child/children, God is the same way about His children. All we have to do is come to Him. As children and adults we have been disobedient to our mothers and suffered the consequences. However, our mother would still accept us as God does. Jesus said if you come to me I will not cast you aside (John 6:37). There is protection staying under the covering of a godly and loving mother. It is the same with God. Certain traps and situations we could have avoided if we had listened. God’s got our back like a mother do when we are under attack. We can run to Him for safety and refuge.

Psalm 91:1-3 Easy Read Version: You can go to God Most High to hide. You can go to God All-Powerful for protection.I say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust in you.”God will save you from hidden dangers and from deadly diseases.You can go to him for protection. He will cover you like a bird spreading its wings over its babies.You can trust him to surround and protect you like a shield.

We all have things we go through sometimes. Certain attacks can leave us feeling helpless. The good news is when we run to God, instead of away from God. He protects and keeps your sanity. A powerful evangelist Marilyn Hickey said when you are going through attacks “You don’t want to backslide, you want to in slide” to God and to people that can help you. We need each other. Get godly counsel from a person you can trust. The word says rejoice when you come under attack for living godly, because we know the reward is great.

It could be something you have done to open the door to the attack. Our nature when we have done something wrong is to hide and isolate ourselves like Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden. However, it only makes things worse. Go to God and the person you have wronged to confess what you’ve done wrong. Get a person you can trust that has wisdom of godly counsel. A person that will not condemn you but correct you in love like a mother does. Pastor Gaines said there have been times in the bible where people repented and cried out to God and God overturned His judgement on them. A mother does the same thing.

Psalm 91:14-16 Easy Read Version: 14 The Lord says, “If someone trusts me, I will save them.I will protect my followers who call to me for help.15 When my followers call to me, I will answer them. I will be with them when they are in trouble.I will rescue them and honor them.16 I will give my followers a long life and show them my power to save.”

I have heard mothers say “If you would have trusted me I could have protected you.” Children cry out to their mothers and they come to their rescue. God is the same way. Read Psalm 91 in its entirety.

When you are under attack, God’s got your back!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for being the Great I am. Thank you for loving me like a mother unconditionally. I rejoice when I come under attack for living godly because it is for your glory and the reward is great. God, I repent for doing things on my own and not trusting you. I repent for any attacks I am experiencing that I caused allowing the devil access to bring havoc to my life. I ask for your grace and mercy. I cry out to you and you rescue me from trouble. I give you the praise, glory, and honor in Jesus name! Amen.

Get Out Of Your Head, And You Will Be Fed!

The title was a powerful Rhema word God gave my sister as we were listening to a teacher of the gospel dealing with the glory of God. A lot of us as believers easily received our salvation. We didn’t hesitate after we confessed our sins and asked Jesus to come into our hearts to be ruler of our lives. We believed with our hearts in the resurrection of Jesus, and then salvation came. However, we begin reasoning and questioning everything else in the word of God and we miss the glorified life God wants us to have as believers. God’s word is spirit and life. If we read the word of God, and be open to the Holy Spirit for revelation knowledge, we will lack no good thing . All of God’s promises are settled. We have to settle it in our hearts by renewing our minds to the word of God. It comes with meditating and listening to the word daily to uproot images that is not of God.

Matthew 6:25-26 King James Version:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

God led me to a teaching about God taking care of us as believers. He brought out that the sparrow doesn’t sow or reap but yet God still provides for them. It means I don’t have to give anything for God to take care of me. God will provide for me regardless because He loves me. The word of God says we are worth more than the sparrows. God doesn’t need money to provide for us. Money is man made printed paper and steel. Your money may be worth less in certain areas and more in other areas of the world. It is what the market says the money is worth. Money is just a tool to exchange goods and services. However, you can not put a price on us. Jesus already paid the biggest price through his son Jesus’ Blood. We should be like a child and a bird and not think about God providing for us. We know because God loves us as a mother or father love their child/children.

God has the silver, gold, cattle, and land/wealth; anything that is in the Earth, God can provide to us. All we have to do is trust Him. He will provide for us how he wants to provide. He can work through people, money, the earth or however he wants to provide for us. Isaiah 55 says, come to God without money, listen to Him and get the best God has for you. We only need to trust God, take Him at His word, and get out of our head.

Isaiah 55 8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord.“As the heavens are higher than the earth,so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

God just gives me the phrases for the blog. Sometimes he works through another person to give the phrase, a dream while I am sleeping, listening to an anointed preacher/teacher of the word of God, through laughter, and the list goes on. I totally give it over to God and it just flows. Remember God’s yoke is easy and burden light. God entrusted me to do the blog since 2018 and the phrases keep coming. God is amazing. We should do the same in every area of our lives and we can experience heaven on earth. God, your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

We don’t tithe or read the bible just to get something out of God. We tithe, read our bibles and give out of obedience to God because we love Him, because He first loved us. We sow to advance the kingdom of God and the purpose he has for us here on earth as God leads us to. Any issue you have is in the word of God. Seek His kingdom concerning your situation. He can handle it. He has the answer and provides the way. Spend time in worship, quiet time, and reading the word of God for Him to reveal the purpose he has you here on the earth. God revealed to me to write a blog by spending time with Him. I learned my purpose here on earth to uplift and encourage people through the word of God.

When we realize how much God loves us and that we don’t have to do anything for God to provide for us, God’s manifested glory operates in our lives. All we have to do is trust and let Him lead and guide us. He has left the Holy Spirit with us. Because God is our Shepherd we have all we need.

Get out of your head, and you will be fed!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for putting me here for your purpose. God, I spend time with you in worship and reading your word because the word is God. I repent of being worried about you providing for me. God, you are my Shepherd and I don’t have to want for anything. I repent of operating out of the spirit of mammon, putting money and other things in the place of you being God in my life. I repent for giving and doing things with the wrong heart. I love you because you first love me. I trust you for providing for me however you want to provide. I receive everything you done for me on the cross. My life is worth more than money and the sparrows. I thank you for your manifested glory in my life. I get out of my head and renew my mind to the word of God. I have the mind of Christ. I do my best according to the word of God and trust God for the rest! I let you be God in every area of my life. In Jesus name! Amen.

The Exciting Journey Has Begun, Living In The Son

A lot of us as believers have been tricked by the devil in believing living a life for God is boring. It is causing a lot of us to be tempted into the life of sin. Remember, the devil wants you to take the bait so you can miss eternity with God. We know from the previous blog that the devil is the Father of lies, a thief that kills, steals, and destroys. The devil does it through our minds and through the airwaves of media, because he is the prince of the power of the air. God gives us all things to richly enjoy. However, in order to get everlasting and great results we have to do it the kingdom way.

Ephesians 5:18 HCSB Translation: 18 And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled by the Spirit.

Getting drunk only has a temporary high with negative side effects: hangover, doing things that are shameful and self destructive which you will regret later. God’s high is everlasting. We are created for the supernatural. That is why people get high or drunk because there is a spiritual void. It was a guy I went to high school with that always came to school high. One day he said he went to church and experienced the presence of God. He said it was a feeling he couldn’t explain. He said it was better than getting high. Everyone started laughing at him saying he was probably high again. They were right: he was high off the presence of God. I have experienced it and there is nothing like it. Deliverance comes. Boldness comes. God reveals secrets and dreams to me. I have my own heavenly language. It is an exciting and amazing journey. We can deal with many challenges that come our way when we are on a spiritual high. We are spiritual beings with different gifts and abilities. Stay filled with the spirit by being in the presence of God, and spending time with Him to tap into the supernatural realm..

John 7:37 Message Version:  Jesus took his stand. He cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says.” 

People are thirsty for something higher but drugs, alcohol, or sex will not quench our thirst because we are spiritual beings housed in a natural body. Only God can satisfy us. Psalm 34:8 says taste and see that the Lord is good. We have to experience Him for ourselves by hearing, reading, speaking, worshipping, and spending time alone with Him. There is nothing like it. God gave me the blog through spending time with Him in worship. He spoke to me. I obeyed Him. As I was sleeping, God told me to do a blog. Now, I have an online store with phrases to encourage and uplift people. He is still revealing things to me concerning inventions to encourage people. I am grateful and amazed at the goodness of God.

Living for God doesn’t come without sacrifice. However, God sacrificed His only Son for us. Any movie or television show without any obstacles, showing everything going good all the time, is boring. The good news is God is with us through every challenge if we lean, trust, and hold on to His goodness. When things get hard, we can count on God to see us through.

Matthew 11:29-30 King James Version: 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

The woman at the well in John 4 is an example of filling a spiritual void through several relationships with men.

John 4:13-18 NIV Version: 13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”17 “I have no husband,” she replied.Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”

Only God can satisfy your longing soul better than a marriage or a relationship can ever do. Please read John 4 in its entirety. The woman at the well went and told others about Jesus. Once you are free and experience God for yourself, you can tell others about the goodness of God.

Solomon was also someone that realized at the end of his life after having many women, wealth , and wisdom that it was all vanity. Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 1 that he has seen everything and that there was nothing new under the sun because he did everything he desired. In Ecclesiastes 8:15, Solomon concluded that the best thing in life is to enjoy people, the fruits of your labor, and most importantly to love God. This is truly living: making God first, enjoying the fruits of your labor, and enjoying people.

The exciting journey has begun, living in the Son!

Prayer: God I thank you for creating me for the purpose to glorify you. Nothing can satisfy me like you can. I repent for filling the spiritual void with things that can only give me a temporary high. Every challenge I encounter I give it to you because your yoke is easy and burden is light. God I put you first, enjoy the fruits of my labor, and enjoy people. A life without you God and your spirit living in me is meaningless and all vanity. I taste of your goodness God, and walk in the supernatural. I give you the glory and honor! In Jesus name Amen!

God’s Glory Is Shown, When We Roll Away The Stone!

People are celebrating today the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus took all our sins on the cross, suffered pain and died. Thank God He rose again so we can live a new life through Him. A lot of us as believers accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior of our lives. However, in order to live in the power of God and have victory over sin, we must roll away the stone of how we used to live. We must live the kingdom way to experience all the promises God has for us in His word.

Romans 12:12: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

It is an everyday thing renewing the mind to God’s kingdom. I mentioned on the previous blog to be sober and vigilant because the devil is as a roaring lion seeking a person to devour. Renewing the mind to the word of God everyday is the way to be vigilant (watch & pray). Matthew 26:41: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

2 Corinthians 10:5 Easy Read Version: we tear down every proud idea that raises itself against the knowledge of God. We also capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.

Our mind is like a garden. We can’t accept the bait the devil brings to our minds that is contrary to the word of God. Immediately cast the thought down with the word of God. Do not let the thoughts that are not of God linger. To take every thought captive means to put the thought under the control of God and not letting it control you. 1 Corinthians 2:16 says: We have the mind of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 

Once you have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, you roll away the stone of a life of death and destruction. You are now resurrected to live in life and peace. When you fall short, confess, repent, and live under the grace; the life Jesus died for. Click link and read blog “The Inner Man Is New; Now Work On The Other Part Of You” Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:31 I die daily. It is a constant dying to the life of sin/flesh and living a life of God.

If you are not saved, you forfeit eternity with Jesus and are doomed to a life of damnation with the devil. Accept God now. Repent of your sins. Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Believe in your heart that Christ was raised from the dead. You are now in the kingdom family. Continue to renew your mind to kingdom living. Ask God to help you in areas you fall short. Live the glorified life that Jesus died for. Let God’s kingdom come! His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

God’s glory is shown, when we roll away the stone!

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for making me a new creation through your Son Jesus crucifixion. I walk in newness of life so that your glory is manifested in my life that draws others into the kingdom of God. I die daily to my sinful nature and renew my mind to the word of God. I take every thought that is not in line with God’s word and cast it down with the word of God. Help me God in areas that I have a challenge in. I live the resurrected life and roll away the stone of my old life. Thanks be to God who always causes me to triumph through Him. In Jesus name! Amen!

The Devil Lays In Wait. Do Not Take The Bait!

It is good to know your enemy so you can be ready. Most athletes study their opponents so they can win. I have seen during a game where the team is down and comes back and win. I have also seen when a team is up and they celebrate too soon, the other team throws them off and they lose the game. That is how the enemy works He comes at you when you are on a high and when you are at your lowest to catch you off guard.

1 Peter 5:8 NIV Version: Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the Devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

We have to stay on guard when we on a high and when we are at our lowest by spending time with God. Living in the word of God is the only way to stay spiritually aware and strong.

Ephesians 2:2 describes the devil as the prince of the power of the air. The radio, television, internet, and social media all operate through airwaves. The enemy uses that to manipulate and control how we behave. Stay rooted in the word of God and stay on the love walk because faith works by love. 1 Corinthians 14:33 says 33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. We should use social media to glorify God with the gifts and purpose God has for our lives.

Revelation 12:10 says the devil is the accuser of the brethren/mankind. There is a saying when you are pointing the finger at someone else two are pointing back at you. We all have issues. The first person we should look at is ourselves. The devil loves when we argue and point fingers at each other. It is a no win situation. There is no one that is good but God (Mark 10:18). James 2:10: For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. A mature person looks at themselves. I Corinthians 11:31 says judge yourself so you won’t be judged. We have to give an account to God at the day of judgement for ourselves, not anyone else.

The devil also wants you to condemn yourself . The devil will bring a thought, a person, or a thing to get you distracted and when you fall short have you beating yourself up. As my Aunt Mary would say “confess and get up out that mess!”

John 10:10: 10 The thief (the devil) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Murders, robbing/stealing and destruction is of the devil. Anything robbing you of your joy, peace, and prosperity is of the devil. Anything killing your spirit and dragging you down is of the devil. Destruction and chaos in your life is of the devil.

John 8:44 says that the devil is the Father of all lies. Anything that is against the word of God is a lie. Any deception is of the devil. Romans 3:4 says let God’s word be true every person a liar. John 14:6 says I am the way The Truth and the Life! God’s word is the final truth above any person or thing. If it doesn’t line up with the word of God it is deception.

Now that we know our enemy we know how to fight and win with the help of God. Ephesians 6:12: 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We can do like Jesus when the devil comes at us we have to submit to God, resist the devil, and then He will flee by saying “it is written.” The word is powerful, quick and sharper than any two edged sword. Speak the word and cut through demonic forces. Read Ephesians 6:11-18 concerning the armor God.

I am thankful for the people in my life that gives me Godly wisdom, corrects me, reminds me to walk in love, stay rooted and grounded in the word of God. Psalm 1:1 says blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the ungodly. In order to be blessed we must receive sound and Godly counsel.

The devil lays in wait. Do not take the bait!

Prayer: God thank you for being The Truth. God I stay spiritually alert by meditating and reading your word in and out of season. God I recognize the devil schemes to lie, kill, still,destroy my life, and condemn me to hell. Thank God because I accept you as Lord in my life I can repent and I am made righteous through faith, not under condemnation. I use the media for your glory and purpose you have for my life. I repent for acting like the devil finger pointing. I judge myself first. God help me in areas that I have challenges in. I thank you I have the victory through you. In Jesus name! Amen.

You’re A Mature One, When You Master The Tongue

As believers, we’ve heard a lot on the power of speaking the word of God to manifest and bring heaven to earth. The tongue has power that can change the atmosphere (good or bad) and the devil knows it. We all have not been perfect when it comes to what we say. We need the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us with our tongue. The Holy Spirit is our teacher. God led me to James 3 concerning the tongue one morning. The book of James mostly deals with the tongue.

James 1:19: Be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to get angry

James 1:26 Amplified Version: 26 If anyone thinks himself to be religious (piously observant of the external duties of his faith) and does not bridle his tongue but deludes his own heart, this person’s religious service is worthless (futile, barren).

James 3:5-12 Message Version: 5-6 It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell.7-10 This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can’t tame a tongue—it’s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth!10-12 My friends, this can’t go on. A spring doesn’t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it? Apple trees don’t bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes don’t bear apples, do they? You’re not going to dip into a polluted mud hole and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you?

Live Well, Live Wisely:

James 3:13-17 Message Version” 13-16 Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. Mean-spirited ambition isn’t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn’t wisdom. It’s the furthest thing from wisdom—it’s animal cunning, devilish plotting. Whenever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats.17-18 Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.

Let us examine ourselves. Use the tongue to uplift and encourage each other into good works. The major thing is love because it fulfils the law of God. That’s how people know we are of God. Read 1 Corinthians 13 everyday to perfect the love walk. Whatever seed we sow (good or bad) will multiply. Repent when you speak out of line and ask God to help you. Ask God to put a check in your spirit concerning your mouth. The Holy Spirit has corrected me many times. Most importantly, when situations arise, ask God what you should say before opening your mouth. In your quietness is your strength (Isaiah 30:15).

Ephesian 4:29 Easy Read Version: 29 When you talk, don’t say anything bad. But say the good things that people need—whatever will help them grow stronger. Then what you say will be a blessing to those who hear you.

Matthew 12:26=37 Easy Read 36 I tell you that everyone will have to answer for all the careless things they have said. This will happen on the day of judgment. 37 Your words will be used to judge you. What you have said will show whether you are right or whether you are guilty.”

You’re a mature one, when you master the tongue!

Prayer: God, I thank you for seeing us through a pure heart. God, help us as believers to see people, situations, and things through your eyes. God, I repent for saying things to slander, hurt, gossip, and damage people. God, help me with my tongue. Put a check in my spirit when I am speaking out of line. I am quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Let my life speak louder than what my words say. God, I let you be glorified through me. I meditate, read, and speak your word to uproot bad trees in my life. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Lord, I fill my heart with your word. I give you the praise, glory and honor! I thank you for the victory in Jesus name!

God’s Manifested Glory Tells The Story!

Most of us as believers have heard this verse in the bible: Romans 3:23: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Before sin entered into the earth with Adam and Eve, they both did not know they were naked because they were clothed in the glory of God. They saw things through the eyes of God. However, when they disobeyed God, the glory left and they saw that they were naked. Sin then entered in the earth. Thank God He loved us enough that He sent His son Jesus to die for our sins and now we are made righteous through faith. We are no longer under the law. The next verse over in Romans 3 :24 (paraphrasing)said we are justified by grace through redemption in Jesus Christ when He took our sins and everything on the cross and died for us.

When we repent of our sins and start meditating, listening, reading and speaking the word of God, Romans 8:1 says there is now no condemnation when we get back in Christ! Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! If you want the manifested glory in your life, it begins with the word of God. The word was God and is God (John 1:1). We as believers have the glory available to us. All we have to do is stay and cling to the word of God until the glory comes in every area of our lives.

God will keep you from the pull of sin and fleshly desires. The key is to focus on the righteousness of God and not your own righteousness which is as filthy rags. A lot of us focus so much on what not to do instead of the grace of God and who we are in Christ. That is operating under a curse. 2 Corinthians 3:6 He has qualified us [making us sufficient] as ministers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not of the letter [of a written code] but of the Spirit; for the letter [of the Law] kills [by revealing sin and demanding obedience], but the Spirit gives life.

God’s word is spirit and life. We can bring heaven to earth by being focused on who we are in Christ. A hymn titled “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” has a verse that says: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face; and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. Glory to God! The glory comes when we fix our eyes on the word of God until our situation that we presently see will grow dim because we are shining the light of God’s word on it. That is truly the glory of God!

The law let us know what is right and what is wrong. We are now under a new law of grace because of what Jesus did for us on the cross. Grace gives us the power to live right. God doesn’t give us grace so we can sin. God doesn’t want us to die in our sins and miss eternity with Him. He is not willing that any should perish but that all come to repentance 2 Peter 3:8. Feed your spirit daily and kill the works of the flesh to operate in the power and glory of God. The more we feed our spirit man the more the pull of sin will have no power over us.

Instead of focusing on what you can’t do, focus on this: I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me Philippians 4:13. When you fall short, repent and get back in the glory and ask God to help you. The enemy wants us to dwell on our failures operating under the law of sin and death to keep us in our sin. It will leave you hopeless and feeling guilty. A righteous man falls seven times and get back up again Proverbs 24:16. Get up, repent, and then start walking in righteousness! Stay with God until things around you grows dim until all you can see is God and then you can see the glory manifested.

As I mature in Christ, if I see a fellow believer in sin or doing things that is not in line with the word of God, before I go to that person I ask God if I should confront that person. Sometimes He will tell me don’t say anything and when the timing is right He prompts me what to say to them. God will reveal to me the heart of the issue. Man looks on the outward but God looks on the heart. I consider myself because any of us can fall into temptation. Live the life before people and they will be drawn to the glory of God in you . Our lives are a testimony within itself. God didn’t send His son into the world to condemn them but that the world through Him maybe saved John 3:17. We as believers should be like Jesus. We want to take as many people into the kingdom not run them away . There are times when we should speak up and confront things even Jesus rebuked certain spirits in people. Sometimes I rebuke myself when God reveals to me evil that is operating within me. Let us as believers be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to get angry James 1:19.

Those who are not saved give your life to Christ and repent of your sins to see the glory of God. Romans 10:9-10 says that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Just this week after studying on the grace of God, the enemy tempted me while I was sleeping with thoughts of lust. The devil comes immediately for the word. I cast down the thought immediately and declared my body belongs to God. I declared I flee youthful lusts. Marriage is honorable and the bed undefiled. I submitted to the word of God, resisted the devil, and He had to flee.

Jude verses 24-25: 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

I know God to be a keeper. We can’t do it without bringing the glory of God’s word in our situations. Only He is able to keep us from falling.

Believers people are waiting to see the manifested glory in our lives. Let’s walk it out where people can see and we can tell people about the goodness of God.

God’s Manifested Glory Tells The Story!

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for your word. It is living and has power to bring the glory. I repent for not seeing things through your eyes. I fix my eyes upon you God and my current challenges grows dim as I shine the light of your word on it. I thank you for the law because without it I wouldn’t know what is right and what is wrong. Lord, I thank you for the new covenant through Jesus sacrificing His life on the cross for my sins. Now I have the grace to live right. I repent of any sins in my life and now that I am back in Christ I don’t have to live under condemnation. I thank you for your manifested glory in my life. Now unto him that is able to keep me from falling, and to present me faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
