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.

Word from the Holy Spirit for July 2018

Hear thee the Word of the Lord to my children who are calling upon My name: Fear not I will continue to uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.  Continue to hold onto My everlasting hand for I am mightily with you. The pain of the past is behind you I will cause those who are willingly obedient to My Word to eat the best of the Land. So continue to seek Me diligently in secret and you will be rewarded openly.

Is there anything too hard for Me to do? I will not let you fall as you keep your hand in Mine and trust Me with your whole heart says the Lord.

 

 

Unbelief Will Shut You Out

One of the saddest examples of people being shut off from experiencing the mighty manifestation of God’s promises is found in The Gospel According to St. Mark. Jesus did mighty miracles throughout Galilee. He healed the sick and raised the dead. He opened bind eyes and cast out demons. Yet, when Jesus came to Nazareth, He could do no mighty works there: And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marveled because of their unbelief…  Mark 6:5-6

Jesus was not limited because His power was not limited. His power had not changed. The only thing that prevented these people from receiving the blessings of God was their unbelief. Instead of being shut out of these promises by unbelief, YOU MUST SHUT UNBELIEF OUT. Don’t allow unbelief to enter your mind. Whatever God says, believe it!

Make this declaration: I won’t let unbelief limit God’s work in my life or hinder me from receiving these promises. I won’t be shut out ever again in Jesus name, Amen.! Be encouraged and believe God’s Word and prosper now.

 

Freely and Fully Forgiven

As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12

If you could know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God had completely forgiven you, what reason would you have to keep feeling guilty? Absolutely none.

And God offers exactly that: complete and total forgiveness, no matter what you have done. Jesus willingly took your sins and mine upon Himself, and He paid the penalty we deserved. The bible puts it this way: “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ”  (2 Corinthians 5:21 NLT)

We don’t need to wonder if we’ve been forgiven; we don’t need to carry around a burden of guilt. If memories from the past return, immediately remind yourself of the truth of 1 John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” Then thank God for forgiving you, freely and fully, because of Christ’s sacrifice for you. (Excerpt from Billy Graham, Wisdom for Each Day)

Unfazed by Circumstances

Never be fazed by circumstances that come against you but rise up and be unfazed knowing that you have the victory in Jesus!  Jesus has given us the victory by his death, burial, and resurrection having paid the ultimate price for all of us.  We therefore, are victorious in him because he has already defeated what we are going through on the cross and nailed it there.  So receive your victory today through your faith and persevere in Jesus!
