If you have passed the period of infancy, you learn that life isn’t always fair!
Some people are rude, crude, liars, and deceivers; but despite their faults, we must still pray for them, say “please”, “thank you,” and “I love you,” when it is appropriate and required.
In your interactions with others, always ask yourself…. “Am I teaching a lesson,” “Am I learning a lesson” or “Am I the vessel through which a lesson is being taught?”
Time and circumstances can change in an instance! So don’t hurt or devalue anyone as you traverse this earth, because you will reap what you have sown! You may be powerful today, but remember…. time is more powerful than you!
One tree makes a million matchsticks! But it takes just one matchstick to burn 🔥 a million trees (and human lives!)!
So don’t think more of yourself than you should! Remember, …. you’re just a vapor!
“Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully, worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as the wise (sensible and intelligent people), making the most of your time because we live in evil times! Therefore, do not be vague, thoughtless or foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what The Will (The Word) of The Lord is! — Ephesians 5:15-17
Make today count! Life is a precious gift not to be squandered! Every day is a chance to begin again! Do it! He has purposed a mighty work in you! No matter how it looks, no matter how many times you think you screwed up, let Him work in you!
Remember, when we move from God’s protection and take our eyes off Him, we lose our discernment!
God has a purpose for each of us; refocus if you must and then step out in faith! He gives us many opportunities to trust Him and persevere!
Praise God in-spite of the pain! Thank Him during the trials! Trust Him when you’re tempted to lose confidence! Let the peace of God rule in your heart! Even when you don’t understand, trust Him! He’ll blow your mind! God can do way more with your surrender than you can do with your control! 💜 #neverfailedmeyet #daughterofthemosthigh
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” ~1st Corinthians 15:58
“But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.” ~Isaiah 54:17
The wise recognize rebuke as a gift of gold (Proverbs 25:12). It is a kindness, and a token of love. “Let a righteous man strike me — it is a kindness; let him rebuke me — it is oil for my head; let my head not refuse it” (Psalm 141:5).
There are some saints that are caught in a vicious cycle of repetitive sin. They sin against The Word of God with their refusal to adhere to ALL of God’s Word by cherry-picking what they will follow and what they will not.
They persist in their sin, wickedness, lies, betrayals and deceit like a rabid animal.
These “saints”, “believers,” “followers,” are living outside The Word and are misguided by the world and those who encourage them to continue in their sin and sinful ways.
They include the narcissists, the adulterous, the liars, the fornicators, those who defile the wedding bed and vows, those who are murderers (spiritually and physically), those who are idolaters, or are covetous and those who abuse The Word to justify their ungodliness.
They must be rebuked, in love, with The Word of God. They must repent to God and ask Him to forgive them for their wickedness and sin, AND they must seek out those they have harmed, ask for restoration and forgiveness.
This is God’s way. This path is scriptural, not man-made or worldly. Those that circumvent it will never attain what God has for them, because they are out of alignment with God’s Word. Yes, He will forgive the sinner, but He will not uphold his/her sin, nor bless any thing, any subsequent relationship or acts that are an outgrowth of the sin they committed.
So, when a you see a brother or sister wallowing in or committing sin, don’t hold back your tongue or God’s Word that condemns their sin from them. As each other’s keepers in the faith, God holds us accountable to strike down the sin nature in them through His Word and through prayer in order to guide them back to The Word and a life that is in accordance with our Lord and not the world’s!
Father, teach us to judiciously and speedily rebuke those among us who are committing sin, living in sin, acting in sin and are entrenched in wickedness and denial of their sin.
Whether it be a pastor, parent, spouse, child or fellow believers who have stepped outside of Your Word, we are accountable for one another in The Faith unless they are an apostate! And just as Jesus rebuked His disciples in love, we, too must follow His example in dealing with the wayward. Amen 🙏🏽
Anyone going from Altar to Altar, shrine to shrine and from forest to forest because of you and your destiny, shall labour in vain.
God’s kindness shall not depart from you and your family forever in Jesus name. Good morning!
Deuteronomy 28:20. the LORD will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke, in all that you put your hand to do, until you are destroyed, and until you perish quickly; because of the evil of your doings, by which you have forsaken me.
God chose women’s bodies to be the nurturing vessel for His children to grow in, be fed, developed in, cared for and eventually be the passage into this world.
God chose man to provide for, instruct, protect, love, and be the Godly model and example of God’s values and teachings.
In a perfect world that man is the child’s biological dad, however if that man is not saved or emulating Godly virtues, or if he’s deceased, narcissistic, unavailable, ungodly, or unwilling due to selfishness to take on this important role, mothers must find men who are!
Raising and guiding a son into manhood is no small task. It requires morals, commitment, a selfless spirit and a heart that is aligned with The Word and seeks to always do what is right in the sight of The Lord.
Godly dad’s play a pivotal role in demonstrating for their daughters what godliness is, what a Godly man looks like, what hardwork is and most importantly what a Biblical marriage looks like.
Many men are sperm donors. Dropping their seed into fertile soil, but not living up to their responsibilities as they constantly step outside their marriage for selfish reasons.
The only examples they provide to their children is what hurt, pain, infidelity, adultery, selfishness, greed and fellowshipping with Satan and whores looks like.
In these times of ungodliness we need men of God to be the leaders and examples God designed them to be. To follow God’s Word, and not the guidance of the unsaved or misguided, no matter the cost to themselves. For the saved are to live and die for Christ, not self or Satan!
God needs soldiers, strong men of God, to rebuke false doctrines and teachings, advice and pressure from the world! Men of God stand up and into your God-ordained role. Lying, cheating, adultery, adulterated teachings, infidelity, wickedness, the “it’s okay to sin, just ask for forgiveness and continue in your sins” mentality and pornography are weapons of spiritual destruction fashioned by Satan and his minions to deceive and kill the men and women of God who allow themselves to be roped into these worldly things that ruin your walk and darken your soul!
God needs his creation and His redeemed to live a life of Christianity that mirrors His Word, not a life that makes a mockery of it! If you cheated during your marriage and she is willing to forgive you and take you back, God’s Word requires you to go back to her and the family. God needs you to be that moral compass for your children and the fatherless children in your life that you are now living by God’s Word, under His Law and by His Grace.
God needs you. Your sons, daughters, stepchildren, nephews, nieces, students, Boy Scouts, Little League players and other children watching your Christian journey need you too.
Try God’s Way and abandon your own way and see how He moves in your life and in the lives of those you vowed to take care of.
Mark 10:6-9 6“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ 7‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. 9Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
1 Corinthians 7:10-12 10To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. 12To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 13And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. 14For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.
When Daniel stepped into the lion’s den he cast fear to the wind because he had faith in God’s protection over him. He was a loyal believer who trusted God completely.
Saying that you trust God, have faith in Him and The Word, have been loyal to His Word and believe that no matter what or who you are facing that God is going to work it all out is easier said than done by most.
Many crumble, falter, fail, acquiesce or run when challenged by family, friends or coworkers about heeding their advice or directives or being obedient to The Word of God.
It’s a test of faith, loyalty, believe and trust in The Almighty.
