Destiny In Your Words

December 30, 2011

We control our destiny by the things we speak. As Christians, [people of power], what we say really does matter. We need to speak power, life, love, and prosperity into our lives, but instead we often speak death, negativity, and pessimism into our lives and the lives of others. Many Christians don’t understand that the words they speak are being recorded and stored for such a time that they are needed by the Holy Spirit and the Devil that our destinies might be designed. If you know you have spoken some things that are not of God, repent and plead the blood of Jesus over those things, so the devil doesn’t have the opportunity to control your destiny.

(Matt 12:36-37) say’s it perfectly “But I say unto you that every idle word [empty or useless, of no value], that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shall be justified and by thy words thou shall be condemned”. You may not have everything you desire, but you are abundantly blessed. Watch your mouth, because your mouth controls your destiny, and will eventually control your thought life if you don’t change how you speak and how you think.

God Bless You

And The Choice Is…

December 28, 2011

There have been many of us during our Christian walk that have attempted to make our own way, direct our own path and do things in our lives the way we see it. However, many of us have also found out that doing things the way we see it, has made a mess of our lives as well. The good news is, God never meant for us to direct our own path, he never meant for us to have a choice, other than, choosing him.

Choice only came after Adam ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God told Adam to eat of every tree in the garden, except the tree in the midst of the garden. Therefore had Adam obeyed what God said, we wouldn’t be choosing who we are going to serve…whether God or Satan. That’s why (Jeremiah 10:23) says “Oh Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps”. It is the Holy Spirit that is supposed to be leading and guiding us.

In fact, (Psalms 32:8) says, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way that though shall go: I will guide thee with mine eye”. As you meditate on this thought, let’s give back to God the only “choice”…if you will, that he gave us in the beginning…and that was choosing life and life more abundantly.

Three purposes of Marriage in the Beginning-Part 3

December 22, 2011

(Gen 2:24) says “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his own wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Finally, they would become one flesh: to become one flesh involves making love. However, it goes beyond the physical press of the flesh. It also means that the two must become one from a spiritual standpoint: Meaning that they come together and they share their dreams, hopes, fears, possessions, feelings, difficulties, successes and failures with God and with each other. It means that as husband and wife we must become transparent with each other, to the degree that our hearts connect. That’s oneness!

It does not mean that somehow the two personalities no longer exist, but the two personalities should be developed in partnership with our spouse for the benefit and edification of the marriage. Too often, one spouse or the other desires to make the relationship about them, but when we share those things I mentioned earlier, successes, failures…etc; it now puts us on a path to see some victory in our marriage; and the truth is that everyone needs to see some victory from time to time to stay in the battle for their marriage.

Three purposes of Marriage in the Beginning-Part 2

December 21, 2011

(Gen 2:24) says “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his own wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Secondly, the man would be joined (cleave) with his wife: To be joined in the Hebrew means (to stick or glue together). Like two pieces of material being glued together the husband and wife can’t be torn apart unless one or the other decides intentionally or unintentionally to separate or tear themselves from the marriage. However, in the beginning God expected the two to be joined for life, to stick together through thick and thin, good and bad, and in ups and the downs of life. In other words, marriage is work and nothing from nothing leaves nothing.

Trouble will come in every marriage, but it’s in the times of trouble where you really find out what your marriage is made of. Can you go through the troubled times and not be bitter with one another? Can you face difficult circumstances and continue to love one another and be ready to forgive one another? Can you go through difficult times and not hide what’s really in your heart from your spouse? If you can do that you have a chance of really being joined to one another.

God Bless You
