I hope everyone had an enjoyable time yesterday with family and friends. God bless those of you that have lost loved ones through one reason or another and have had to muster up the courage to navigate your day and days to come as we approach this season of jubilee. Please know that the closer you draw to God, family and friends the easy it becomes. The rest of us need to embrace them however we can and create opportunities for fellowship and fun!
Speaking of which, I had a great time with the young people that God has in trusted me, my family and my home too. Most of them have been around since middle school. It is such a pleasure to watch them evolve, making decisions and choices in life. I am honored that whenever there’s a break they find their way to my house even when they’re in their 20’s. Lord Have Mercy, but we must embrace them, love them, guide them, and they all know I will correct them! But I also create a safe place for expression. Its all about balance y’all. We can’t be so heavenly that we are no earthly good!
I’m still thankful today, to just be able to command My Morning, Amen. Some of you know what that’s about and those of you that don’t, I’d be happy to enlighten you! I spent the morning reflecting over the past 48 hours and how the Lord just did what only he can do. He will not see the righteous forsaken amen nor their seeds begging bread! I can just stop right there. Thank you Jesus! God is Faithful even when we are Faithless.
I heard something this morning on one of my calls that really shouted me and it was that. We’ve got to be careful of what we are feeding our Spirits. The enemy loves to eat fear, self doubt, inadequacy, desperation, thoughts of not being good enough, depression, and other such negative feelings. We have to study the Word so that we can replace these feelings with the Word and Promises of God!
That’s what this thing is about! It’s a strategy to fight the enemy of our minds and spirits. How many of you know that’s where the real battle is, in our minds. For if the enemy can control our thoughts and feelings he will no doubt control our behavior. That’s how we get into predicaments that cause us much pain, agony and grief. That’s how these generational curses go on. You have to be the one in your family, in your generation to shift the paradigm.
You might be asking, how do I do that? I’m glad you asked, by connecting yourself with people that not only have what want or are doing what you want to do; but with people who are where you want to be. Now let me caution you here. The enemy of jealously, envy, strife, and bitterness is awaiting when you make these connections. The spirits tries the spirit, so I warn you come correct or the spirit in you will be called out and asked to leave. Hellalujah, Glory to God!
So you have to come and connect with an humble spirit, a teachable heart, and a willingness to follow. Lord Have Mercy! This may be the hardest thing to do, especially if you’re a natural leader. Well, you might be asking now, so how in the world can this be accomplished then. If the enemy is going to be attacking me at every turn, even when I’m trying to do the right thing? Well no one said it would be easy….lol
I’m glad you asked. You have to develop that one on one relationship with the Holy Spirit. It’s an inside job y’all. He knows your every thought and desire. You have to be able to tap into the holy spirit, commune with it, and it will tell you exactly what to do. Ask him to remove anything that’s not like him and to give you a pure and fleshly heart. Ask him to remove the Stoney heart, then guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows all your issues.
How do you do that? Through prayer and you must connect with a ministry that will direct you to passages of scripture, you must read and study those scriptures often and develop a strong prayer life. While there are levels and classes to this thing, these basic principles are not just for some of us, but for all of us!
