Unveiling Glory

“The things we can’t see now will last forever.”

2Co 4:18 MSG

WELCOME THIS CHANGE!

We enjoy the blessings of change, but not the process of change. We’re creatures of habit. We form our habits, and our habits form us. Then we start to see things exclusively from our own perspective. And when that happens—we stagnate. The truth is, without change there is no growth. When you have the right attitude every experience—positive and negative—becomes an opportunity for progress. Think about it: Trees need more than sunshine to produce fruit. Rainy seasons are productive seasons too, and they always precede the harvest. You don’t have to like rain, you just have to understand its purpose and benefits. The Bible says that every day “the Lord …makes us more and more like him…we are changed into his glorious image” (2Co 3:18 NLT). But to become like Jesus you must follow wherever He leads. That means following Him through the wilderness of temptation, the pain of rejection, the forfeiting your reputation, the surrendering your will, and being ready to go to the place of crucifixion where you die to all forms of self-centered living. Following Jesus may mean being in a different location tomorrow than you are today. Once you grasp this principle, you’ll stop fearing and resisting the changes taking place in your life and start seeing God at work in them. Paul says: “Even though on the outside it…looks like things are falling apart…on the inside…God is making new life…The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever” (2Co 4:16-18 MSG).

Work For The Lord

▸ Your assignment will not be the same as your brother or sister in Christ.

▸ Your assignment is not about you. It’s for God’s Glory

▸ The enemy will distract you in many ways throughout your journey because He is aware of the power and the anointing upon your life. He will send people your way to participate in his tactics for you. God has a plan but the enemy also has a plan for your life.

▸ Draw nearer unto God. Let the word of God be your food daily.

▸ Many times, throughout the journey, there may be seasons where it’s just you and God. ▸ Be Prayerful

▸ Surround yourself with a community of believers

▸ Don’t allow the enemy to create doubt in your mind about the plans has confirmed in His word towards you.

▸ Somedays, may feel difficult than others and you may want to give up but remember that God is with you.

▸ Spend time in worship. The Lord inhabits the praises of His people. Rejoice in God, your Savior.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. -Galations 6:9

God bless you all 🙂

Live At Peace

“If…possible…live at peace with everyone.”
Ro 12:18 NIV

TRY TO MAKE PEACE

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God” (Mt 5:9 NKJV). Notice, God promised to bless peacemakers, not peace lovers. There’s a difference. Peacemakers pay the price; peace lovers enjoy the benefits. Sometimes you’ve got to confront people before you can comfort them. Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple because they were charging unfair exchange rates to those who bought lambs and turtledoves to offer as sacrifices to God. In most cases these were people who could least afford it, so Jesus decided to get involved. One of the names given to God is Jehovah-Shalom, “The Lord is our peace” (See Jdg 6:24). “Shalom” doesn’t denote the absence of trouble, but the peace of God in the midst of it. When we have an issue with someone, Jesus said we should take certain steps. First, go and try to resolve it privately. If that doesn’t work, take someone with you who can help. If that fails, take it to the church leadership. And if the person still refuses to be reconciled, then love them and leave them in God’s hands (See Mt 18:15-17). It may not be a How-to-Win-Friends-and-Influence-People approach to conflict resolution, but it’s God’s way. Paul said, “If…possible…live at peace with everyone.” For example, Paul was willing to forgo eating certain foods that were offensive to others (See 1Co 8:13), but he wasn’t willing to tolerate troublemakers in the church (See Ro 16:17). So you must know when to make waves, and when to make peace.

Ever Present God

“The name of the city…shall be, The Lord is there.”
Eze 48:35

WHAT’S IN A NAME? EVERYTHING!

During Israel’s twenty-fifth year of captivity, Ezekiel the prophet received from God His name Jehovah-Shammah: The Lord is there. God described Israel’s future home, Jerusalem, saying, “And the name of the city…shall be, The Lord is there [Jehovah-Shammah].” It applied not only to the Lord of the old covenant, but equally to Jesus, the Lord of the new covenant. His name, “Immanuel,” like Jehovah-Shammah, means, “the Lord is with us” (See Isaiah 7:14). And it means at all times, in all places, under all circumstances, and for all of us, God is ever available and ever present! David proclaimed: “I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me and your strength will support me” (Ps 139:7-10 NLT). Do you remember as a child how fear, loneliness, and helplessness disappeared when you were in your mom’s or dad’s presence? In Israel’s deepest despair God’s response was always, “I am with you.” Those words guaranteed that their needs would always be met! And today God is saying to you, “I’m with you,” and “neither death, life, angels, spirit-powers, present or future fears, height, depth, nor anything else in all creation will ever separate us” (Ro 8:38-39). That promise extends to all God’s redeemed children—reach out and grasp it.

Release Unto God

Don’t allow anything or anyone to come in between your relationship with God.

Matthew 5:23-25

23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

25 “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.

Key Points on Forgiveness: These are a few things I’ve learned about forgiveness throughout my walk with God. Unforgiveness is a disease that is rapidly spreading in the body of Christ. It’s hindering us from doing what God has called us to do. Unforgiveness binds you with those who hurt you. You give them power over your life. Don’t lose sleep over anyone. I’ve done it but I’ve learned from it. It’s not worth it. Afterall, they will live their lives and you will sit and cry over spilled milk. Everyone you encounter is for a purpose. You may not always understand the encounter but it was for a purpose far beyond your understanding. Walk in freedom. Pray for those that have hurt you. Understand that you have hurt someone before. We are sinner’s in need of a Savior daily. Surrender the area of struggle to God. Sometimes, people stop talking to you because they are personally struggling with something and many times, it has nothing to do with you. All you can do is pray for them. If you want to reach out to them, feel free to but if they don’t respond, just pray for them. Allow the peace of God to reign in your life. Don’t allow anything to come in between your relationship with God. It’s honestly not worth it. Release the people that hurt you. Say their names. Know that God is in control. Unforgiveness creates a bridge that hinders you from seeing the work of God in your life. Forgiveness is not to heal the person that hurt you but rather forgiveness displays the love of Christ in you. If God can forgive you daily and you are a child belonging unto Him, forgiveness is a must. Wholeness is found in Christ. He is the mender of broken hearts. So come as you are into his presence. Rest in God’s presence. If it means deactivating your social media to focus on God, do it.

Thank you for taking the time to listen. God bless you. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in God’s word. Don’t allow anything to hinder your relationship with God. God is with you. He cares, loves and has a plan for you 🙂

Release!

“Cast out this bondwoman and her son.”
Ge 21:10 NKJV

LET IT GO!

When Abraham tried to hurry the plan of God and fulfill it through well-intentioned but misguided human effort, Ishmael was born. Perhaps you have tried something similar yourself. We all have our “Ishmaels”—a good idea that wasn’t a God idea. And it can complicate your life. So God told Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman and her son.” In other words: “It’s time to deal with your past and clean out your closet. This thing is holding you back, and until you deal with it you can’t move forward to your destiny. Get it out of your life and don’t look back!” Sometimes your miracle (Isaac) and your mistake (Ishmael) can live together for a while under the same roof. Things can be so good in one area of your life, yet so bad in another. But there comes a time when God says, “Because of the plans I have for you, you must put this thing out of your life.” And that’s not easy. It’s painful letting go of what your flesh craves or cherishes. But you have only two options: Be led by your emotions and miss out on God’s best, or say, “As much as I love this person or thing, I love the Lord more.” When you’re willing to walk away from something you thought you had to have because you love God more, that’s called “the sacrifice of praise” (Heb 13:15). And when you offer it up to God, you position yourself to experience a new level of His blessing. Is God speaking to you today about something similar in your life? If so, let it go!

My Identity Is Found In Christ

Discovering Identity

In the kingdom, knowing Him is knowing yourself. This is how you discover your true, godly, kingdom identity. Notice the exchange between Peter and Jesus. When Peter has the revelation that Jesus is the Christ, look at what he was rewarded with. Jesus looked into the DNA and the future of Peter, pointed his finger and said, “YOU ARE PETER (Peter means “rock”) and on THIS rock I will build my church.”

When Peter discovered who Jesus was, he discovered who he was (identity) and what he was born for (destiny). This is true kingdom identity! This moment would stay with Peter for the rest of his life, no doubt for the hard times, but to also give thanks in the satisfied moments of his life’s work. God wants the same for you and make this invitation to answer the question, “Who do you say that I am?” How you answer will unlock identity and destiny – Get ready!

God bless you all. Have a great day 🙂
