Beyond the Valley

August 16, 2015

A valley is a low plain; a low point or interval in any process, representation, or situation; any place, period, or situation that is filled with fear, gloom, foreboding; such as the valley of despair.

When you are in a valley, you can do one of two things – not move (remain stagnant) or move upward. When you experience valleys of life such as the betrayal of a friend; the loss of a loved one; or financial disaster, God does not want you to stay in the valley; He wants you to come up out of the valley.

Many people choose to stay in the valley because they lose hope and then experience despair. They lose hope because they depend upon people rather than God, to help them come up out of the valley.

God wants you to come up Higher. However, you must desire to come out of the state of lowliness, and rise to higher ground. God desires for you to grow and go from one level to another level; constantly climbing until you reach the top of the mountain, where you can remain if you trust and obey God.

 “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.” (Proverbs 3:5-7)

Remember, you can always depend on Jesus Christ, He is always there for you, and will always supply your every need.

And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

God will always lead you on the straight and narrow path that leads to righteousness.

 

Abide in Me (Jesus)

Abide in Jesus and He will not depart.

He will flow blessings to you from the start.

 

Remember that He is Lord of your life,

And through Him you can avoid strife.

 

He is always with you, no matter what comes your way.

Just trust in His Word (promises) and you will be well on your way to reaching new heights of wisdom and understanding.

 

Never veer from your God-given purposes each day,

Because God will constantly reveal them to you every step of the way.

 

Don’t be conformed to this world of wickedness,

Focus on staying on the straight and narrow road of righteousness.

WOMAN

You are of value.

Don’t be afraid to hold your head high when you cross the valleys in the twilight.

You got to make it through the night

Before you reach the mountain top and see daylight.

Once you reach the top of the mountain,

Your victory does not end there BECAUSE you got to remain within the light.

The light is truth revealed by GOD.

Spring Up in the Word

July 13, 2015

It is very important for you to spring up in the Word, Worship and Prayer so that yokes may be broken.  You must develop a deep intimacy with God so you will hunger and thirst for God, and become a faithful servant of God – doing things well pleasing to God.

The Holy Spirit is your power source.

 

 


The Effects of Unforgiveness

July 9, 2015

Unforgiveness blocks your ability to hear and receive form God. It keeps you in a prison of anger, bitterness, and resentment.  Consequently, you cannot move forward because you are stuck in the past – focusing on past mistakes, past regrets, past hurts, past mistreatment.

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  (Phillippians 3:13-14)

The only way to be released from the prison of unforgiveness is to FORGIVE!.  Forgiveness restores you and frees you from anger, bitterness, resentment, and regret.  It empowers you to regain the abundant life that God wants you to live and discover and fulfill your God-given purpose.

“But if you do not forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:15)

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  (John 10:10)

Sail With Jesus

July 6, 2015

Sail With Jesus, and you will never go adrift.

 

The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].  (Psalm 92:12 – AMP)


Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

June 14, 2015

Your Behavior is a reflection of what you believe. Your Behavior Change is based on changing your thoughts.

 

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”  (Isaiah 55:8-9)
