Thoughts

II Corinthians 10:5 KJV Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

A thought is defind as th action or process of thinking. In our text we see that we are to bring our thoughts inline with God. So, if you are driving along and you start thinking about how you should tell Susie off because she did not laugh at your story, you need to stop the movie going on in your head. One must realize that everyone may not think your story is funny.

You also take a thought by saying it. You smell freshly baked cookies and you think to yourself, I will get some cookies. Then you say, I am going to get some cookies, you have just took your thought and turned it into a spoken word.

Let us grasp ahold of the thoughts that will edify and speak God’s Word.

Blessings

Mercy

Psalm 62:12

King James Version (KJV)

12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

Thank God for His mercy.  We would I be without it? Mmmm, maybe not in a good place or further behind in my purpose for here on earth.

Mercy is defined as a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion, a fortunate circumstance.

Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery because they were jealous and God showed him mercy and gave him favor in the sight of Potiphar. Potiphar  made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.  This is God making what the devil meant for evil for good.  Joseph was well favored.

Joseph was handsome and Potiphar’s wife wanted to lie with him.  Now why does this women who has all that she wants, want to lie with Joseph?  That is another story in itself, I will not go there.  Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce Joseph. He refuses her and runs away.  In his haste, he does not pull his garment from Potiphar’s wife ‘s hand and he leaves behind his garment.  Here is what she did.

16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: 18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. 19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

God again showed Joseph mercy and He gives him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.  What the devil meant for evil, God made it for good.  God set the devil up.  The devil thought Joseph would not succeed and through these adverse circumstances Joseph learned and was being groomed for God’s purpose.

What can one learn from the story of Joseph? No matter what the cost, stand firm for God and He will bless you for doing His will. Also,for being on God’s side, you will be blessed even though the circumstances do not look good.

Be Blessed!

Qualified

 

I Corinthians  9:26-27 English Standard King James 
26) Therefore I run thus;not with certainty. Thus I fight:not as one who beats the air. 27) But, I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.

Everyday I rise with a choice to put my best foot forward in all things or just do nothing. What does nothing bring? Nothing! At work my job performance and leading would be meaningless. If I did nothing, I would be disqualified. My role as a mother and wife, would have no fruit. How can I represent my husband and my children if I did nothing. Really? No cooking, no cleaning, no washing, no working, no helping with homework, no listening to the children’s problems or questions, no listening to my husband, just eating, sleeping and making a mess. Who can I lead  if I do nothing? Who can I help if I do nothing?

What does putting my best foot forward bring? It brings peace of mind, satisfaction, a sense of accomplishment, laughter, a happy home and enjoying work. Disciplining oneself to stay on task, completing what is required, listening and helping is a positive output. One is representing themselves as leader who is qualified, certain and capable. In all the things that ones does, do it as if you are doing it unto the Lord. Keeping the Lord at the forefront, keeps things into perspective. See, being a leader is being a greater servent and helper. Yes, you lead, but the majority of the time you are serving others and by your service to others you are setting a Godly example.

Be Blessed!

Happy Wednesday

We have made it to mid-week. Summer is approaching and you know what we tend to do. We get that quick diet plan to lose pounds before the summer hits.

Instead of the quick fix diet, how about a life style change in eating? We eat to live. Food is one of the vital things we need to survive.

Now, in all this exercising what about our mind? Having peace of mind and in the soul is important. There is one who can give you and I peace in the midst of every situation. His name is Christ Jesus.

John 14:25-28 King James Version
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. [26] But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. [27] Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

In these times, we all need peace.

Be Blessed!

Show Love

Hello Beloved,

We are all called to be servants of Christ, to help each other to overcome and provide words of hope. On this day, tell someone they did a good job. Tell someone “yes they can make it” or just smile when you see the person in front you. In doing so, you are showing the love of God.

Be Blessed!

Prayer for Strength

 

Psalm 119:159

New King James Version (NKJV)

159 Consider how I love Your precepts; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your loving kindness.

Lord Jesus we love your commandments and follow them.  Consider us Lord as we ask for strength. We need you Lord to make it through this day.  Thank you Lord for your loving kindness and for strength.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Be Blessed

 
 

The Morning Struggle and Victory

While walking this morning, my leg began to bother me so much that I almost reached for my cell to call for help. Instead, I spoke the Word of God and brought God’s Word  back to His remembrance.  The Lord God comes for His Word.  I said, “Lord you promised healing and total restoration. I need strength, Your strength that is within me and I kept on walking.” Soon enough I was moving better and the limp started going away.

Hebrews 4:14-16 King James Version

14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Go boldly to the throne of grace, speak the Word of God, believe and He will answer.

Be Blessed!
