Sometimes we ask God to intervene in our lives, to clean up our messes, to toss our sins into the Sea of Forgetfulness, but in the back of our minds doubt Him. Try to fix it on our own creating a mountain of problems, anger, frustration, and issues that previously didn’t exist.
Instead of allowing God to move the mountains in our lives (only if He so chooses) we build new ones creating a vicious cycle of confusion, stress, frustration, depression and problems where none had previously existed.
What is the impetus of it all? A lack of faith and trust in God that He knows what’s best for us, not us! He only requires us to be faithful, trusting, obedient, Loving, and upright in our dealings, treatments and interactions with others.
Father God, we implore you to create in us a clean heart, a right spirit, a Godly mannerism, and a heart to do Your Will and be obedient to Your Word. Let not our sin nature be an ever-present mountain in our lives that when one sin is demolished we replace it with another. Compounding sin upon sin as we construct new mountains in our lives. Move us Father from selfishness to selflessness. From religion to relationship. From wickedness to Godliness. From sinner to saved and help us to shed off daily the old man and replace him with the new creature we are in You! In Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name we pray, Amen 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Focus Scripture ~ Psalms 34:10. Though the young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but in your own case, and that of every member of your household, the Lord God Almighty shall never cause you to struggle to eat, or beg for food or lack anything good in all the days of your lives in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
Have a wonderful day and a Blessed working week with song’s of victory of hallelujah of Dominion with glory ahead and Great Turn Around in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
I stand by the authority of the Most High God and I decree that as the midnight separates the old day from the new day, so shall your life forever be separated from failure, hardship, poverty, lack and diseases in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
From today onwards, everything God has created in the heavenlies and on earth will cooperate with nature to prosper you and your course in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
The power of a seed is not in its size but in the quality of its product. May every small effort of yours always yield multiple results of blessings in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
Life is not by Grade but by Grace. Not by Labour but by Favour. Not by Merit but by Mercy. May the Grace, Mercy and Favour of God locate you as you step out today in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
Have a wonderful day and a Blessed working week with song’s of victory of hallelujah of Dominion with glory ahead and Great Turn Around in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
Genesis 12:13. “I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse.”
Deuteronomy 32:35 “ Vengeance is mine, and recompense, for the time when their foot shall slip; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and their doom comes swiftly.“
2 Thessalonians 1:8-“He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey His Word!”
Brothers and Sisters rest assuredly in God’s Word and know it NEVER returns void unto Him. Trust and believe that He will deal harshly and swiftly with your enemies and those, even those who cloak themselves in Christianity but align with the world and Satan in their words, deeds and unBiblical actions. God is not mocked. God is not fooled. God has seen their lustfulness, their wickedness, their worldliness, heard the words and false testimonies and writings. Seen their actions and deeds. Listened to their plots and plans and how they cherry-pick what scriptures they will abide by.
We need not follow their path! For soon they will stumble and fall with multiply calamities that will overtake them mentally, physically, financially, emotionally and spiritually. They will in vainglory cry out ABBA, Father what have I done? as the sin in them fools them into believing God has not chronicled every evil conversation, plot, thought, action and deed they have done against Him, The Word and you who stood as armor-bearer, confidant, friend and more in their lives, but were repaid with demonic and unBiblical acts.
Satan wanted to pull you along wit’s them into his grips, but failed. For the seed of Jesus planted in you flourishes and you prayed and God kept you in the midst of it all while those whom you believed to be Godly were Satan’s willing prey.
Remain strong in God’s Word knowing the evil one and his cohorts and the contaminated saints who waffle between the world and The Word, will soon be dealt with by Our Father in Heaven.
Their day of calamity looms large over their heads. No worries my brothers and sisters— it is coming.
Father God we thank You 🙏🏽 for Your Word. For Your protection and for Your Love and forgiveness. Those who have abused our kindness and love we place into Your hands to avenge us their wrongs and misdeeds with full confidence that You can repay them more for their actions, words and deeds than we ever could. For we know their Day of Calamity comes soon. Amen 🙏🏽
“And He said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.”
Mercy and Grace are absolutely the prerogatives of God!
Today: God’s grace will be manifestly and copiously lavished on your life!
You’ll rise, where others have fallen!
You’ll succeed, where others have failed!
You’ll be kept alive, where others have died!
God will be gracious and merciful to you In Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
Beloved, have a very pleasant Tuesday with song’s of victory of hallelujah of Dominion with glory ahead and Great Turn Around in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
As we embark on a New Year (2020) and a new decade, I wanted to share with you all a helpful article by Club Fifty, on blessing blockers. I hope this helps clear up any log jams that may be slowing your destiny down! Amen 🙏🏽
9 Blessing Blockers That May Prevent You From Getting Your Blessings
Go Get It: Your Blessing!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ~Philippians 4:13
Hello Golden Divas!
Let’s get real here! We want more things than ever in our lives now, prosperity, good health, maintaining our jobs, better relationships with family and friends and overall a better you.
But what is keeping us from having it all? Dare I say it…we play the comparing game. We compare our lives to others that we deem not worthy of having their blessings manifested.
Have you ever had the thought, “Hmm, something just doesn’t seem right here.”
“I’m doing all the right things, reading my bible, going to church, I’m even tithing…so where’s my blessing?” “Why am I still struggling?” “Why is my money still not tight?” She ain’t done have of what I’m doing and I know she ain’t in church as much as I am.
So why does it look like she is getting blessed every day all day? Uuuuuggghh!!!
Sound familiar? You know when you’re all up in someone else’s business God can’t be about your business. Plus you’re blocking your blessings when we do so.
STOP! Worrying about what other people have and focus on getting your blessing!
You don’t know what that Golden Diva is going through. You’re on the outside looking in trying to justify why you’re NOT getting BLESSED!
You don’t know what that Golden Diva is doing to achieve her success so stop assuming. She might be on her knees praying hard to get where she’s at so that her blessings won’t BLOCKED.
Check out this video “It’s The God In Me” by Mary Mary (I love them)!!
Well, ladies I know that has been my story in the past and sometimes in the present. I can be doing everything right and nothing seems to be going right. Good Lawd what does it take to make it in this world. I mean really?! Can a girl catch a break!
And then on top of all of that, I hear “Girl don’t block your blessings” worrying about what others got!
LADIES, WE CAN BE OUR WORST ENEMY!
Okay, so what’s really going on? What does it mean to block your blessings? Well, let’s talk about…so that you can go and get your blessings!
9 Blessing Blockers That May Prevent You From Getting Your Blessings!
Blessing Blocker 1: Disobedience
Our minds automatically go to the big stuff. Drunkenness, sex outside of marriage, partying, drugs, etc…what about when the Lord tells you to forgive someone who wronged you and you haven’t or to bless your sister with some money when you know she’s running low and need some help. You have it to give and you don’t because you have that money set aside to get some more weave hair, clothes, jewelry etc. Or maybe the Lord has told you to volunteer more, help the elderly or simply be kinder to those who wronged you. Your reason I’m too busy and I still haven’t heard an apology from the person that wronged me. It’s call forgiveness and we will get to it a little later in this post.
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 says, “God promises us that “If we obey the voice of the Lord” then ALL these blessings will come upon us and overtake us. (Go read it for yourselves, the blessings promised to us are huge!)
But verse 15 tells us that “if we DON’T obey the voice of the Lord, then those blessings will NOT come upon us.”
One of the blessings God promises for obedience is that “He will command a blessing on your storehouse!”
Isaiah 48:17 is also very interesting: “Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go. Oh, that you had hearkened to My commandments! Then your peace and prosperity would have been like a flowing river…”
The Lord teaches us to profit (that’s a good thing!) and He leads us in the way we should go.
He’s leading you, but are you obeying? Be honest Golden Divas!
He then tells us that had we listened to His commands (instructions) THEN our peace and prosperity would have been flowing like a river!
Is your peace and prosperity flowing right now? Uh huh?!
Then perhaps He’s given you instructions you haven’t obeyed yet.
Blessing Blocker 2: Covering Your Sins
“Cover your sins” could mean you are cheating on your spouse ( I know my Golden Divas that are married are not doing that) and you keep it hidden. I think we’d all agree that if you’re doing that you are obviously not going to prosper.
Or we often cover our sins in our own minds and hearts by not owning up to them and taking responsibility for them.
Proverbs 28:13 says, “He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
Genesis 3:12 says when Adam ate the fruit after God told them not too. He covered his sin by saying, “The woman, whom You gave me, she gave me the fruit from the tree and I ate it.”
See how Adam passed the blame onto God? The woman whom YOU gave me Lord…like it was God’s fault for giving him that woman!
More practically, perhaps you covered your sin today when you started bashing your boss to your coworkers today, but then justified it because your boss is greedy and doesn’t pay you enough, or you feel like you haven’t gotten the praise you think you deserve.
Or you reason with those around you, that “It’s not my fault our money is tight at my house, my boss didn’t give me that raise he said he would.
Don’t cover up your sin, don’t justify your actions or your situation, just repent.
Own up to it, take the blame, change, and live free!
Blessing Blocker 3: Your Words!
God set before us blessings and the cursing, He said we get to pick what type of life we want to live. So how do we choose the blessing and life?
Deuteronomy 30:19 says, God did something amazing for us: “I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life….”
Proverbs 18:21 AMP tells us that, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” That means we get to choose life, by choosing our words.
Proverbs 18: 20 AMP reveals this truth: “A man’s [moral][/moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth, and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good=” or=” evil=”][/whether]”
Whoa. Ladies, I know this blocker may be hard for a lot of us but I want you to know that there are consequences to our words.
You do know negative thoughts can become negative words, and we all know words have power. Negative thinking can keep us captive. We can unknowingly choke our own blessings with negative thoughts.
We tend to think that if we expect the worse then we will not be as disappointed if things do not turn out the way we had hoped. It is time to stop speaking in a way that is inconsistent with what we want. Life is better when we keep a positive mindset.
Whether good or evil. It’s your choice.
Think about it Divas, do you go around speaking death and cursing over your finances?
“Honey, I just don’t know what it is, it just seems we can never get ahead…”
“Every month something else on the house breaks down and I got to replace it.”
“I’ll probably get passed over for this promotion too, seems like every time there’s an opening someone less qualified gets it.”
“I just can’t seem to lose this menopausal weight.”
Stop speaking like that. Flip your vocabulary towards life and blessing.
There will be a consequence of your words. Let’s make sure it’s a good consequence.
When it comes to your money, find out what God said about your situation, and then say those things.
Blessing Blocker 4: Offense
Are you offended often?
Being offended is rooted in PRIDE. You get offended when YOU are passed over for something.
When you’re not acknowledged for doing something that you said it was for Lord and deep down you was the one looking for all of the praises and the praises should only go to LORD. The one you were doing it for in the first place. Right?!
When your boss doesn’t pick you for the promotion.
When your pastor doesn’t ask you to speak or doesn’t pick you to lead a small group. Even though you’ve been around longer than others and know more than them.
When your manager says he likes your idea of the company, but then doesn’t use it and goes a different direction.The list can go on forever Divas.
Carrying this offense around is an indication your pride is running the show. Now you’re mad, you don’t want to help anymore, you think, “Why should I? They never use my ideas anyway.”
You then begin to isolate yourself, a root of bitterness begins to grow, you murmur and complain about your pastor, you start to infect others to try to get them to see things from your filter…it’s a downward spiral.
And it will block your blessings.
Blessing Blocker 5: Being Stingy
Lawd Jesus Golden Divas open up that closet that is filled with clothes that you know you can’t wear anymore. Let it go and give your unworn clothes to someone who can wear them and is in need of some clothes. Help someone out financially who is in need of a financial blessing.
Did you know God’s financial wisdom is fascinating? It’s literally the exact opposite of what the world teaches.
Proverbs 11:24-25 says, shows us the key to becoming wealthy.
“Give freely and become wealthier; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper…”
Another translation puts it this way:
“Some give freely and still get richer, while others are stingy but grow still poorer.
The person who blesses others will prosper…”
He literally tells us the decision-making process that will make you wealthy and prosperous: Give freely and be generous.
Giving freely and generously = Blessings unlocked.
So how do we lose everything and grow poor?
Be stingy that’s how!
But stingy doesn’t mean what you think it means. Most of us would say that we’re not stingy. We often think stingy people are greedy people rubbing their hands together with an evil, money hoarding plot…
But then I looked up the definition,
The definition of stingy is “unwilling to give, unwilling to spend, ungenerous
Can you see where this is going Golden Divas?
If you are unwilling to give, unwilling to spend, or if you’re ungenerous = #blessingsblocked!
So Divas you better check yo’self.
Blessing Blocker 6: Self Doubt
Remember the old saying “You never know until you try” Sometimes we have our minds programmed for failure and we expect the worse before we even try.
Think of how many talents, dreams, goals, businesses, gifts, jobs, relationships and so much more go to the grave with people. Fear is a roadblock stopping us from experiencing the life for which we were created to live.
James 1-8 says that “a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
When we have doubt, we are double-minded. We need to remain constant in belief no matter what is going on. No matter how our bad situation looks ladies.
We need to decide if we are BELIEVERS or DOUBTERS. Recognizing this will help God restore your faith in areas you are stumbling. Do not be ashamed to confess this to God. It’s necessary to move forward.
Blessing Blocker 7: Pride
Being able to admit our faults and wrongdoings are what enables us to get back up and keep going when we fall.
Proverbs 24:16 says “The righteous may fall seven times but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble.”
We sometimes allow pride to keep us down way longer than we have to be. I know I have been there plenty of times.
Blessing Blocker 8: Holding on to the past
Living in the past and refusing to move on only hinders growth and blessings. While you’re trying to hold on to a relationship that was never meant to be, Golden Divas let that no good man alone. I don’t care how fine he looks, has to go. Why? Because God is trying to make room for the right one to come into your life.
Blessing Blocker 9: Unforgiveness
I told you I will be back for this one, later on in the post. Here we are, ladies, it’s a tough one!!
“Whenever you kneel down to pray, if you have something against anyone, forgive so that your Father in heaven may forgive you of your wrongdoings.”
Matthew 11:22-25 tells us that if we don’t forgive others, then our faith is hindered. And that we must forgive others so that our Father will forgive our sins too.
Mark 11:25 basically says, Being able to forgive is so important. Not just because God commands it, but for OUR WELL-BEING as well. Unforgiveness emotionally ties you to a person for as long as you are carrying a grudge. Now ya’ll know we need to let some people go, emotionally, physically and psychologically.
Think of it as having a scab and just when the scab starts to heal, you peel it. That’s what unforgiveness does. It stops your healing process.
Forgive everyone quickly, do it now, and move on Divas.
Unlock The Key To Your Blessings
Now that you know the nine main blessing blocker, what are you going to do about it?
You can say, “Oh those don’t apply to me, the reason I’m broke right now is __________.” And fill in that blank with some justified excuse…
OR, you can take 20 minutes on your drive to work today and examine yourself.
Say, “God I ask you to show me if there is anything in my life that is blocking my blessing. I want to own up to it, I take full responsibility. Show me the areas I need to improve in so we can weed them out.”
Then be silent.
Listen to what He tells you.
Then do it. Repent. Fix it. And move forward.
And one last tip:
After you’ve weeded out your blessing blockers, the next step is to expect blessings to flow in your life!
YES! EXPECT BLESSINGS TO FLOW IN YOUR LIFE!!
Look for them, expect them, keep an open eye for them.
When you walk into a job interview, expect to get it!
When you enter a contest, expect to win it!
When you’re trying to lose weight, expect to lose it!
You walk in the blessing now, it’s who you are, you are a Blessed One.
Get used to it. Go and get your blessings Golden Divas!
Let me leave you with another great song from my favorite sister duo Mary Mary “Go Get It (Your Blessings!)
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation
I have seen too many egotistic folks or good hearted folks try to leave a legacy because they want to be remembered when they go over to the other side which is abused and forgotten in a few years. All the while they neglect their eternal inheritance which will be either very comfortable or extremely uncomfortable.
I choose the eternal inheritance of Christs kingdom over my ego every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah
I work to impress Jehovah, not man. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” ~ Mark 10:9
My husband and I have been married for a few years now. It was his second, my first. We bonded over shared beliefs and Christian fellowship that wove what I thought was an impenetrable bond grounded in our mutual faith and Biblical foundation. Little did I know how busy Satan is when it comes to the union of marriage and the people the devil uses, that you would least expect, to tear it asunder. Most disappointing is when it is other Christians.
“What God has joined together, let no man (or woman) put asunder!” In reading this Scripture, while battling demonic forces attacking my marriage, God revealed to me that this scripture and the word, asunder, is a warning, or rather it was revealed to me spiritually — a threat from God — a red flag to marriage interlopers, adulterers and adulteresses, how holy God views the sanctity of marriage, the marriage Covenant, the marriage vows and the blessings God proclaims over the marriage Union. Those who work to tear it down, tear it apart, create dissension, and confusion with the ultimate goal of causing a break, a separation or the final blow of a divorce, are cursed by God for “putting the marriage asunder!” It’s Biblical. It’s God’s Word, not man’s which makes it all the more incredulous that someone would challenge God and God’s Word with such wanton disobedience, violations and sinful acts against Our Heavenly Father. Especially those who profess to be followers and believers of The Gospel and saved by the Blood of the Lamb!!!
Asunder means to drive apart, to divide or break into pieces. It is the opposite of join together, unify or make as one, which is what a married couple is supposed to be…ONE in God’s eyes for He joined two into one. Toying with God by willfully being disobedient to His Word, ignoring it, parsing what you will subscribe to in scripture and what you choose to ignore or violate is sin and sin has very severe consequences, just meditate on Mark 10:9 before you act against God’s directives. The threat/warning is clear. Disobedience has direct consequences, just remember Lot’s wife. Pray, before you act! God’s Word is true. It is not unclear, ambivalent or untrue. Test NOT your Father in Heaven. Luke 4:12 ~ “Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”
Matthew 4:7 ~ “Jesus said unto him, It is written again,Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.“
1 Corinthians 10:9 “We should not test Christ, as some of them did and were killed by snakes.“
Going against God is a battle you WILL lose. It is SIN! And exposes one as having no real faith in God’s ability to do the impossible and is turning your back on Him and His Word, even if for a moment, or for a single situation for in doing so you have failed God and Jesus miserably and no amount of wailing, crying out to God, fasting and praying can erase your deliberate and willful disobedience. God is not mocked!
Father God we come to you in prayer and supplication to You and Your life-giving Word that feeds, sustains, quenches and guides our path as we seek to be more like Christ. God correct us swiftly with your punishment if we willfully step afoul of Your commandments, Your Word, Your directives, Your warnings and threats. Remove us from the demonic influencers, the living situations, the satanic whisperers, the adulterous people who seek to lead us towards unGodliness and Hell. Who drive us to act against Your Word or who charge us to put our marriages asunder for none of them, no not one, truly knows You as their Lord and Savior. We pray it all in Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name, Amen
