Hearer or Doer Preparation

Image result for picture of someone working and someone being lazy


James 1:22 King James Version 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

The hearer of the word, just goes for the promise.  They do not do any preparation they just jump right in ready to receive the prize.

The doer of the word, hears the word and does the preparation needed to receive the promise. After getting themselves prepared for the promise, they receive the promise.

To earn a Medical Degree, you must follow the set program of studies and take the required courses/labs.  The degree is the promise for completing course. To whom much is given, much is required.

Are you a hearer or a doer of the Word?

Be Blessed!

Image result for picture of lack of money


Proverbs 20:13 King James Version (KJV)  Love not sleep, lest thou come into poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

Poverty is defined as a state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions according to Merriam Webster Dictionary.

What we see here in scripture is if you want to be able to achieve a certain amount of money or possession, you can not sleep all the time. One needs to work. Money is a means for getting things needed for survival. Now to get the amount of money you want, one must educate themselves. Education, getting knowledge and understanding is a key.

Proverbs 4:5-9 (KJV) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

Let us all strive to educate ourselves to remove the lack in our lives.  Let us share what we learn and help some one remove the poverty in their lives.

Spoken Words

Proverbs 6:2 King James Version (KJV)

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

The words you speak can either help you or hinder you from success.

Overwhelmed With Tasks

1 Thess 5.18

Do you ever feel overwhelmed at work ? Do ever feel like everything is being handed to you at once to be completed as soon as possible?

Know that if you were not competent and dependable, you would not be asked to do the task. You have been put in this place because of your character and the trust that you have earned with others.  So instead of thinking of the task(s) given as a burden or too much, look at it as a stepping stone to your next level of promotion.  Then thank God that He has selected you for this purpose.

Be Blessed!

Image result for picture of options to go right, left or straight

Acts: 13:44-48 King James Version (KJV)  44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. 48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

In our scripture text, we see Paul and Barnabas brought the good news to the Jews 1st and they did not believe. The Lord gave a way for the people who are not Jews, a chance to be saved, a chance to have remissions of sins, a chance to have power to overcome.  The Jews refused and the Gentiles accepted.

John 3:16 (KJV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Christ died on the cross so that all men might be saved. Everyone has an option. The question is who is ready to say “yes” to Christ and begin to follow Him.

Repentance & Obedience


Image result for obedience


Repentance is simply changing your ways or direction that you are going. If you know that should be doing A and you do D. Stop doing D and do A. Repentance also affects ones heart. The heart is sorrowful for doing the wrong or going in the wrong direction. From repentance comes obedience. With obedience there is reward.

At Bible studies, we were to pray. I came in a little late and a sister was praying. Now I know I was supposed to pray, but I chose not to. Even though the Holy Spirit is was prompting me, I chose not to. After a discussion led by Pastor, we got a do over. Thank God for the do over.  When it came time for me to pray,I repented. Yes Sir and guess what? I felt a burden lift. Thank you Lord for Your grace and mercy. Everyone was blessed!

The moral of this blog is simply to do what is required and you will get your reward faster.

Be Blessed!

Do Not Give Up

Image result for black superwoman images

There will be times when you will go through a struggle and it seems like eternity. Do not  give up. Hang in there, the light is coming.  That is how I feel today. I know I am going through a spiritual battle for the Glory of God, but I refuse to allow the enemy to win. You see in am victorious in Christ Jesus. No weapon formed against shall prosper. So I choose to put on the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, my boots with the preparation of peace, the sword of the spirit and my shield of faith. Yeah, I am ready!

Are you ready?

Be Blessed!
