Take back your weapon. But what exactly is your weapon?
It is your tongue!!!
Sometimes we look too far for answers. Maybe the answer is in your mouth. All you need to do is declare and confess. The devil knows that there is power in your words, so that is why he tries to shut you down. Don’t let him shut you down. Speak. Speak for your life. Speak the word of God. Speak to your situation.
The answer is in your mouth.
That is why the tongue is so important. Every word you say will either bless you or curse you.
You cannot bless God, and then curse people with the same tongue. If you are using your tongue to only curse people and say negative things, how can you rebuke the devil when you have something that belongs to him?
All the lies that come out of your mouth, the gossip, insults…all of those belong to him. SO do you think that he will listen to you when you try to rebuke him or his demons?
The tongue is the fire you are burning for yourself.
Don’t let confusion come out of your mouth. To have authority and power over the spirits of darkness, you must be careful how you use your tongue.
Life and death come out of your mouth, so you need to stop blaming other people for your problems. Don’t blame them; blame yourself for the things that you said out of hurt, anger or confusion.
Proverbs 13: 2-3
1 Corinthians 14:20
This is from a powerful sermon that my Dad preached yesterday at church!
God bless you all!!!
Thoughts taking over
Minutes passing by
Clock ticking away
But the truth remains.
Forgetting real events
Erasing the past
But the truth remains.
Hoping for a better day
Searching for answers
Adapting to the circumstances
But the truth still remains in your heart and deep down in your soul.
You can try to forget it, but it will always remain.
Don’t you dare pick up that phone and make that phone call.
Don’t you dare go to that place you have no business going to. Why do people find themselves back where they said they wouldn’t go back to? Because they fall into the trap.
They hear those voices…”one last time. It won’t hurt.”
That is one BIG FAT LIE.
It will hurt.
It might even cause you everything.
That one last phone call can ruin it for you. Be strong and know that God is there to help you and not to harm you. Sometimes God asks us to make hard decisions. But it’s for our own good. Would you rather hold on to God or the things He asked you to let go of?
We may not see clearly now, but down the road, you’ll be thankful for making the right choice.
I encourage you today not to give in to your flesh. Live by the Spirit and have some self control. The Bible says that, ”The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.” John 6:63
Don’t be deceived by your flesh..because it will deceive you, trust me. Don’t give in. Instead, let the Spirit live inside of you and let it win over your flesh.
Even when you don’t feel like it….
Letting go will free you.
Let go of:
Friends who hinder you.
Relationships that harm you.
People who don’t believe in you.
People who slow you down.
Ex’s you can’t forget.
Grudges againts people.
Things people said about you.
What someone did to you years ago.
Whatever IT IS…
Let it go.
It does not matter anymore. Let go of all those things. There is a time for everything and you’ve got to learn how to adapt to change and let go of the things that should no longer be.
Eclesiastes 3 talks about how there is a season for everything. Each thing at its own timing.
What do you need to let go of?
Goodnight or goodmorning!!!
Sometimes I don’t realize that my posts are a blessing to others until people write me and thank me for the things that I write. Thanks to all of you who stay connected with me and I hope to continue to be a Blessing to you. A lot of times, in my posts, I speak for myself or what I may have gone through…so I’m glad that I’m helping, encouraging, and touching people with my words. To inspire…that is why I write.
” I have the right to do anything,” you say–but not everything is benefecial. ”I have the right to do anything,”–but I will not be mastered by anything. 1 Corinthians 6:12
Just because we may be able to do many things, it does not mean that we must do them all. If it is destroying us spiritually and destroying the body, then why do it at all? ”All things are lawful to me, but not all things are profitable.”
We should always think and reflect before doing something. Before making a decision or a choice, you should always ask yourself how/if it will help you in a any way or if it will just hinder you and eventually master you. Don’t do things just because you can. Don’t welcome things in your life that are only here to make you their slave.
The next time you find yourself about to do something you are unsure about, ask yourself: Is it profitable?
Think about it…
Have a wonderful Monday and a terrific morning!
Why are some people so afraid and closed-minded sometimes?
If you want to reach your goals and beyond that, you gotta start thinking big.
You won’t go anywhere with a closed-mind or if you limit your abilities.
You have nothing to lose. People are too afraid nowadays. They don’t want to get rejected, they don’t want to waste their time etc…
I hear all types of excuses of why they are still in certain situations.
Well, you’ll remain there if you don’t decide to do something about it.
Stop complaining about your situation and do something about it if you don’t like it.
I know someone who had big dreams. This person always tell me about all the things that they want to accomplish and all the businesses they have in mind. I’ve been hearing that for years now, but they are still in the same place.
AND YOU KNOW WHY?
It’s not because they don’t have the money or opportunity.
It’s because all they do is TALK.
It’s okay to dream and it’s okay to talk about it, too.
But there comes a time when you will have to DO something about it.
It won’t come to you. You’ll have to work at it.
But be ready for two things:
REJECTION and PATIENCE.
Rejection stings a bit, but you have to get right back up and keep going. Someone will give you a chance, eventually.
Patience is difficult at times, but it’s a requirement.
If it’s really what you want, I’m sure you won’t give up so easily.
When I die, I want people to say, “Well, at least she lived long enough to see her dreams come true. She achieved her goals.” And I also want God to be happy because I followed the desires he placed in my heart. God didn’t give you certain talents and gifts for no reason. Put them to work. Don’t waste your talents. There are people in this world who would do anything to be talented like you.
- Is It Wrong To Dream Big? (jasonbee98.wordpress.com)
” I love your hair.”
” I love my new car.”
” You gots to love your new place.”
” Loving every minute of this ice cream.”
” You will love it!”
” My puppy is the only love I have.”
” My sister just loves you!”
”I love chocolate.”
” I’m so in love with this TV show.”
I could go on and on using the word love and not even mean it.
How many times have you misused the word ‘love’ today?
We all do it but do we actually mean it?
Try to catch yourself every time you say it, and count each time you used it without actually meaning it!
Have a wonderful day!
Everybody wants it. Everybody needs it.
Some people hate it. Some people love it.
What does it mean to you?
Could you live life without it?
A lot of times when people hear ‘love’, they automatically think of a romantic relationship but it is so much more than that. Love is one of the most important things that God asked of us. Sadly, love is wrongly interpreted and misused in this new day and age.
Apostle Paul speaks greatly about love in the new testament. I know I’m guilty of not loving everyone how I should. It is difficult, but not impossible.
Take a deeper and closer look at love today. Are you really a loving person? As annoying as your coworker might be, love on them. As irritating as your haters might be, show them love.
Love is a requirement. God didn’t give us the option to love our neighbors. No. He said ”Love Thy Neighbor.” period. No exception. No questions asked. No buts. Or else, our life is just worthless. You can be the nicest person in the world and still not walk in love.
You might be so gifted and talented and useful in so many ways, which is fine, but you are no good without love.
Every now and then I have to remind myself and meditade on 1 Corinthians 13. This chapter is really short, but very profound. Read it and see if you’re really walking in love or just pretending…and when you pray, read the verses outloud. Confess with your mouth what love truly is according to the word of God. Remember that love will last forever and that it should be your highest goal. Blessings.
Life is life. Make the best out of every situation. If you don’t have a job, enjoy not having one and do the things that you’ve always wanted to do that you cannot when you have a job. If you have a job, work hard at keeping it! If you’re not in school, relax and let your brain rest. If you’re in school, work your butt off until you get that degree. It seems like people are never satisfied with where they are in life. When they have a job, they want to stay home and when they don’t have a job, they wish they had one! What do WE want after all? I’ve learned to just be content with where I am in life and what I have! Stop looking for something to complain about! Enjoy what you have instead. You’ll find that life is actually NOT that bad after all…
God has an individual plan for each of us. Don’t compare yourself to others. That is such a waste of time…
I’m just sayin…btw I am using my twitter more, so follow me on Twitter >>@Deborah_NK
Expecting the Best.
- When you expect the best, you believe that God has a plan for your future and that He is in charge. Each life is unique.
Your life is based on:
- Who you are.
- Who God wants you to be,
- How God made you.
- Expect the best even when things are not going your way.
-Have a different mindset and perspective from others around you.
- Have a different vision
- Let your conviction be different from others.
-Let your experiences differ from others.
- Your attitude should always be different. You should expect the best at all times.
- The King’s promises shall be the best for you.
- Expect the best because it brings honor to God and it glorifies Him.
-Increases your abilities in life.
- Encourages others.
- Increase your expectations by:
-Listening to God every morning.
-Thinking of God’s promises all day long.
- Put your trust in God’s love no matter the situation.
When we Trust God, His love will give us:
- Surround yourself with positivity.
This post is primarily for women. Girls. Ladies.
Often, I come across girls who are perhaps single and are complaining about how there are no good men out there. They may say something like, “Yeah, girl, there are no good men out there. Maybe I need to move somewhere else because I haven’t come across any men that were up to my standards…the good ones don’t approach me, but only the ones who are not what I want.”
I realized that maybe the women are the problem. Maybe they are not up to the men’s standards. I think it is very important for women to take care of themselves, first. Many women are too dependent. You have to learn how to be a little bit independent! Get an education, a real job, and learn about responsibilities. Handle your business first, then, maybe the right man will come along.
I’m so tired of hearing women complain about not finding the “one.” Stop trying to find the one, let that right man come to you at the right time—without forcing anything. Sometimes girls have their minds so caught up about finding the right man that they seem to forget that there are other things to life than having someone “special” in their lives. There is a time for everything in life, so enjoy the singleness while you still can. Use that time to better yourself. Get your life together first, maybe then, someone will approach you. Being in a relationship will not make all your worries go away!
Just a thought!
