A Word to the Wise

Ask the Lord for discernment in relationships. Not everyone is about their Fathers business to bring Him glory. You can love and serve all those that God sends to you, but be selective about who you trust yourself to in friendships and alignments. Not everyone is for you!

Honestly, many people aren’t for anyone but themselves and this doesn’t always reveal itself with blatant selfishness. What to look for in friendships? Those that are faithful to God, not for what He can do for them, but out of humble gratitude for what He has already done. Avoid yoking yourself with those that won’t serve God without the spotlight and praise of man. It’s great to encourage others but someone that is motivated by the praise of man is an unstable man that shouldn’t be trusted.
The road to life is narrow and few find it. Don’t be shocked and surprised when you encounter people that are only for you or with you if it is going to build their ministry, their image, or fulfill some other need they have. Faithful servants of the Lord are few and far between. When you get connected to a mature and humble servant of God, cherish them and commit to walk beside them in service or in discipleship as the Lord leads. Don’t be to them that one I am warning you to watch out for that is only in it for themselves. Sow where you are fed and give honor where honor is do.
Like attracts like. Don’t be surprised when some of your relationships and alignments are interrupted in this season. Many are being promoted into the next level of glory in God and He will prune the toxic or fruitless branches in the process. Let them go!!! Their release makes room for the fresh heavenly manna that God wants to release into your life. You would be astonished if you could see in the Spirit realm how many things are blocked from flowing into your life by the refusal to go through the pain of letting go.
Onward and upward Kingdom people.

How to Get Your Joy Back

Did you know that unrepented, unconfessed sin can literally make you sick? There is no way to experience the abundant life God has promised without walking in the light of truth. Examine yourself before the Lord, when He brings conviction and correction confess your sins and turn from them.

Often times we wrongly believe it is someone else’s sinful attitude and behaviors that are causing the emotional turmoil going on inside us, when in fact, it is our own unrepented and unconfessed sins.

God offers freedom for sins through the cross of Jesus Christ. The blood of Jesus was shed for the sins of the whole world. Does the whole world experience the glorious freedom that is offered? No. And neither will we if we continue on in our sin without repentance.

The Bible says that people perish for lack of knowledge. It’s important to know and meditate on all parts of the scriptures, not just those that are easy to swallow. God wants to give us a wonderful, blessed, and joyous life, but if we are still bound by our sins, wallowing in addictions year after year, not growing up in our faith, the enemy will continue to bring destruction and keep us locked in prisons of our own making.

Christ died to set us free!!!!

We will not reach perfection while still in this body, but we must press on and fight to apply the victory of the cross to our lives. I am not suggesting that we have a morbid preoccupation with finding every fault we can find in ourselves and walking in condemnation. I am writing to encourage you to walk daily in the light of His Presence. If God is dealing with you about something, its because He wants to set you free from it. He won’t tell you everything that’s wrong with you all at once, but if you are intimately connected to Him and surrendered to His work in your life, you will get dealt with. REJOICE!

Agree with God. Repent and confess known and unknown sins. Receive forgiveness and cleansing. Receive back the JOY of your salvation that is forfeited by deliberately continuing on in a sinful behavior.

‘If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?’

~Hebrews 10:26-29
