How To Conquer Bitterness

Bitterness is an obsession with an offense. Bitterness often enters through a family wound, hurt, a perceived injustice, a relationship disappointment, an offense or a loss. However, if you allow bitterness to remain, it will eventually destroy your life and your relationship with God.

That is why the Word teaches us to “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you,”(Ephesians 4:31-32).

Eliminate any words of bitterness in every conversation. Do not remind others of your experience, unless it is to teach and encourage them to rise above their own hurts. Satan knows that if he can get you offended and deceive you into harboring anger and bitterness that he can usually cause you to fall spiritually. “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled,” (Hebrews 12:15). 

5 Keys to a Fruitful Life

  1. Intimacy – Your intimacy with God – His highest priority for your life – determines your impact for God. Your awareness of His presence energizes you for your work.
  2. Obedience – Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him. He does not require you to understand His will, just obey it, even if it seems unreasonable. If necessary, He will move Heaven and earth to show you His will, because obedience always brings blessing.
  3. Trials – Adversity is a bridge to a deeper relationship with God. You learn more in your valley experiences than on your mountaintops. The dark moments of your life will last only so long as it is necessary for God to accomplish His purpose in you.
  4. Prayer – Prayer is life’s greatest time-saver. You stand tallest and strongest on your knees. When you fight all your battles on your knees, you win every time.
  5. Generosity – You can never out-give God. He blesses you so that you might bless others. 

The Power of the Unshakeable Attitude

There’s nothing as powerful as attitude. It dictates your response to the present and determines the quality of your future. If you don’t control your attitude, it will control you.

More opportunities have been lost, withheld, or forfeited because of attitude than from any other cause. Attitude creates a more powerful distinction in life than beauty, power, title, or social status. It is more important than wealth, and it can keep one poor.

Your attitude is a manifestation of who you think you are, and the story of the lion and the sheep illustrates this well. If you believe in your heart that you’re merely a sheep, you’ll stay in the confines that others have placed you in or that you have made for yourself.

However, if you think you are a lion, you will venture beyond human limitation and embark on the courageous life you were born to live. Your boldness will inspire and influence others to believe God for great things.

No amount of training in leadership skills or management methods can substitute for right attitudes. Even if you have a powerful title, your life won’t have significant impact unless your attitude reflects the unshakeable confidence of knowing who God has made you.

Believe what your Heavenly Father says about you! Then go out and ROAR!

Working Together For Your Good

In Romans 8:28th Bible says “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. ”  God and His Angels work together for your good when you love God and serve Him.  We have power over the enemy when we live according to the Word of God and walk in His ways.

Keeping a heart that is upright before the Lord, and yielding to Him on a daily basis, we can receive and know that all things will work together for our good.  When the Bible says “all” it means all.  So no matter the situation you are in, God can turn it around for your good.  Keep believing and trusting in Him and allow Him to continue to work in your life for your good.

Having Self-Control

Proverbs 16:32 -“He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, he who rules his own spirit than he who takes a city.”

Solomon, who actually ruled over many of these cities, concluded that it was better to be patient than powerful, and that it was more important to have self-control than to rule a city. Many people aspire to have power, influence, and riches, but how many seek the kind of self-control of which Solomon spoke?

How do we develop this kind of control? one of the most important steps to realize that God has given us the opportunity to make choices. We can choose to obey Him, or reject Him, to do His will or go our own way, or to follow the Spirit or our flesh.

The Bible reminds us that each of us has limits but that His Holy Spirit is available to help us. In fact, Paul wrote that self-control is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:23).

Today, ask God to help you have the kind o self-control you need to lead a victorious life. Fill your mind with His Word, and seek to apply it in your life. Submit your life to Him, and seek to be guided by His Spirit.

Prayer: Father, I surrender my life to You right now. Help me to have self-control I need. Fill me with Your Spirit. I need You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God will always hear a prayer from a broken and contrite heart! Psalm 51

September Word from the Lord

The shaking which has begun a number of years ago will continue as men’s hearts cause them to humble themselves to seek Me diligently because I am not willing that any should perish but all come to repentance. I will continue to manifest My goodness to humanity. I will continue to display My glory and majesty in the heavens to cause people to turn from their wicked ways and turn to Me.

The hardened heart will be softened as I multiply My mercy and My goodness to humanity. I will unveil the full revelation of who I am to those who are hungering and thirsting after Me. I will increase My Angelic activity on the earth to help humanity fulfill their destiny. My loving kindness and My tender mercies and My greater goodness shall be poured out on all those who are seeking Me. The righteous shall flourish and there will not be any lack and My faithfulness will not fail says the Lord.

Word from The Lord for August 2018

Thus says the Lord, for the month of August 2018, I have heard your cry My children who are desiring to know Me.  I will remove the obstacles and blockages from your path so you can walk in My greater glory.

There are so many out there who are tired of Religion, they want to know My intimacy. I will continue to draw My children who are diligently seeking Me. My blessing will rest upon them as I magnify them. I will not allow anything to choke the Word given to them by My Servant through the Holy Spirit. My children will not be denied any good thing and I will cause them to be raised up to a higher level.

Those who are secretly practicing the works of darkness, their ungodly practices will no longer work and they will backfire on them. For it is written whatsoever a man sows that shall he reap.

I will be with those who are with Me. I will keep drawing them closer to Me as they continue to fellowship with Me their heavenly Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.  I will be their shield and shelter the lifter of their head.

There will be new signs in heaven and earth to reveal My greater glory which will cause the lukewarm to repent and turn from their evil ways.

Please read Psalm 20, Psalm 21, Psalm 23, Psalm 25, Psalm 27, Psalm 28 and Psalm 30.

Clothed with Humility

The scripture states that we should not be high minded but be clothed with humility. 1 Peter 5:5-6 states “Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder, Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.  Humble yourselves, therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”

When we continue to walk humbly and do not think of ourselves more highly than we ought to we are able to receive instructions and guidance from the Holy Spirit. God gives more grace to the humble which means He can increase the anointing on the  lives of those who will walk humbly.
