Stay Wit It Til You Git It

Your hearing determines your outcome and what type of ground you have. Romans 10:17 says that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by word of God. Notice that it says faith cometh which means you must do it continually in order to get the faith to obtain what you are believing for. It must be in line with the word of God in order for it to work. There are four types of grounds but only one got the results. Which ground are you?

According to Mark Chapter 4 Message Version

Ground 1 Seed falling Along the Side of the Road
14-15 “The farmer plants the Word. Some people are like the seed that falls on the hardened soil of the road. No sooner do they hear the Word than Satan snatches away what has been planted in them.

Ground 2 Stony Ground
16-17 “And some are like the seed that lands in the gravel. When they first hear the Word, they respond with great enthusiasm. But there is such shallow soil of character that when the emotions wear off and some difficulty arrives, there is nothing to show for it.

Ground 3 Thorns
18-19 “The seed cast in the weeds represents the ones who hear the kingdom news but are overwhelmed with worries about all the things they have to do and all the things they want to get. The stress strangles what they heard, and nothing comes of it.

Ground 4 Good Ground
20 “But the seed planted in the good earth represents those who hear the Word, embrace it, and produce a harvest beyond their wildest dreams.

Conclusion: This is how you can obtain what you are believing God for.
Hebrews 12 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
We Also Should Follow Jesus’ Example
12 We have all these great people around us as examples. Their lives tell us what faith means. So, we, too, should run the race that is before us and never quit. We should remove from our lives anything that would slow us down and the sin that so often makes us fall. 2 We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But he accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy he could see waiting for him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne. 3 Think about Jesus. He patiently endured the angry insults that sinful people were shouting at him. Think about him so that you won’t get discouraged and stop trying.

Personal Success

It started with a dream for me to go into freelance writing. I kept researching, praying and asking until I got my answer. When I started researching on freelance writing, blog jumped out at me as I was researching. I got with a lady who is a successful author and spiritual adviser to inquire about the dream I had. It was as if God was speaking through her. She asked me what am I most passionate about? I told her I love to encourage people. She responded, “well that is what your blog will be about.” As soon as she told me that, an idea of using phrases that rhymes with pictures came to me. I ended up with a lot of catchy phrases to use my gift of encouragement. Every situation I dealt with God gave me a phrase for. My dad stated it came to him to do a blog; this how I got the name for the blog “Adams Family Inspirations” When I started the blog, I had a hard time with getting it together, from not being able to customize my blog, logging in, and other things to discourage me. However, I stay with it and now I see the results. I did not let obstacles stop me from starting the blog. I looked at the result and how it would be a blessing to other people. That kept me going to get to my destination.

Stay wit, it, ’til you git it!

Prayer:  God I thank you for sending Jesus as an example.  I run the race of life looking to Jesus who is the author and finisher of my faith. I let go of any weight that hinders me from getting to my destination.  I repent for letting situations get the best of me. I know through you Lord I have the victory. I persevere through faith and patience with expectancy I inherit the promise. I thank you in advance. In Jesus name. Amen.

Tackle Your Shackle

file (30) (2)

Isaiah 52 The Message (MSG)

God Is Leading You Out of Here

52 1-2 Wake up, wake up! Pull on your boots, Zion!
    Dress up in your Sunday best, Jerusalem, holy city!
Those who want no part of God have been culled out.
They will not be coming along.
Brush off the dust and get to your feet, captive Jerusalem!

Throw off your chains, captive daughter of Zion!

God says, “You were sold for nothing. You’re being bought back for nothing.”

11-12 Out of here! Out of here! Leave this place!
Do not look back. Do not contaminate yourselves with plunder.
Just leave but leave clean. Purify yourselves
in the process of worship, carrying the holy vessels of God.
But you do not have to be in a hurry.
You’re not running from anybody!
God is leading you out of here,
    and the God of Israel is also your rear guard.

Are their circumstances, people, or things you are trying to break free from that is holding you back?  Is it robbing you of your joy, peace, and prosperity? The first thing it says in Isaiah 52 is to get up and clothe yourself with strength. We know that the joy of the Lord is our strength. Get a specific scripture, meditate on it, and get sticky notes wherever you are so it can be before your eyes. That is how you gain strength. Once you have decided to do not look back. It also says in Isaiah 52 to leave clean; do not hang on to people or things that kept you in bondage. The second thing Isaiah 52 says is to purify yourself through worship. I can remember when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison they prayed and sang praises. After they did that the prison doors opened. The third thing Isaiah 52 is that God leads you out as you take a step of faith he will lead and guide you to victory!

How do you prepare for a test? According to Matthew 4 Jesus prepared for the test through fasting. You can fast for half a day, a whole day, three days, or do a Daniel fast for 21 days with just vegetables and water.  Use that time to set aside for God to gain full victory on things that really has you bound.

Tackle your shackle!

Prayer:  Lord I thank you that who the Son sets free is free indeed. Jesus took my freedom for me through His blood and dying on the cross for us.  I prepare myself through prayer and fasting for the test to break free from the chains that bind me. I let go of the people and things that are keeping me  bound. My praise set me free. I rejoice for my freedom now! In Jesus name. Amen
