As Christians it is imperative that we have a regular diet of the word daily if we are to get the victory over sin and be who God said we are. For the psalmist says “Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11). There is no guarantee that we won’t sin against God (at times) even with the word of God in our hearts, however, when you have a consistent feeding of the word, your chance of falling into sin becomes less and less. It becomes less and less because you are renewing your mind and feeding your spirit man with the necessary nutrients to be spiritually successful. Let me encourage you to continue to hide the word of God in your heart because it’s changing you into who God called you to be one day at a time.
God Bless You,

In the 25th chapter of Exodus God begins to show Moses how he desires the tabernacle to built. He declared that he wanted the tabernacle to be built according to all the pattern that he would show him. What we should learn from this is that God is a God of specifics. He wants us to serve him the way he desires and he will not veer from his plan. We don’t get to serve him the way we want and still think that we are going to heaven. We don’t get to pick and choose the parts of God we want and think that we are going to heaven. We don’t have to over think this Christian walk because God has told us how we are to serve him in the pages of scripture. There is a pattern that all of us are to follow and we can choose to follow the pattern or not. However, the path you choose will determine your destiny.
God Bless You

As Christians we must learn how to speak words into others lives that edify, that strengthen, that encourage, words of kindness, those that bring life. For pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones. Are you speaking words into your marriage, into your children, into your family and friends that edify down to the soul? It’s way too easy to be a pessimist, let’s be a people who operate in optimism and speak life.

The Song of Songs opens with a Shulamite woman saying “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine (Song of Songs 1:2).
Kissing in marriage is a sign of love, sexual desire or reverence for your spouse. And spouses need to kiss more and allow intimacy to arise to make you drunk with love instead of simply heading for the sheets. Kissing gives God the opportunity to lead the love encounter, kissing gives God the opportunity to stir up the process of making love to the degree that both leave the marriage bed satisfied. However, I find that many couples kissed frequently before they got married, but after getting married, especially if they have been married for some-time, the joy of a kiss was few and far between. Let me encourage you to get excited about the kiss in your marriage like the Shulamite woman did when she was in the presence of her love because the kiss can stir up a level of intimacy that you may not have experienced in a while.
God Bless You
