You Mad Bro?

Ephesians 4:26-31

26 “In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.

 

The thing about anger, is it is the product of of everything that is prideful and selfish. See it is easy to get caught up in the emotional aspect of life. It’s easy to let it fester and stew and take over your thoughts. I used to be angry. I used to hate and make fun of others. When I came back to Jesus, He pointed many things out. If you cannot see the good in others or accept age, gender, color, etc. You are quickly falling away from the grace and blessing of God. Sometimes, with those close to me, I can see things so clearly. Yet their hearts are often not ready for the discussion or thoughts that have. To be compassionate, understanding, and always focusing on the good instead of dwelling on the bad is not something you can gain on your own.

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. -Colossians 3:8, 12-13

If every little thing gets under your skin then the person you should be angry at is yourself. Honestly, the person with the problem, both mentally and spiritually, is you!!! The only way to overcome this feeling is to learn how to ask God to take it from you. God has been swift to take my ill feelings away after frivolously asking God to help me love more. Only recognizing that you have an issue with anger is the first step. After all how can you fix what you never recognize is broken?

Back Again

Galatians 6:9 (NIV) 

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

I have been pressed to write more on my blog. I can’t lie, I have been distracted and caught up with my business. God is so awesome guys. No joke. i’m doing what is known as a run. A run in my business is when you put your head down and grind it out until you look up and your at the goal. My goal seems distant from me, because I set the bar to be at the top. Like life, everything is a roller coaster. I am going through every emotion every day multiple times a day. I have realized the rate of mindset in others and myself. I have recently been speaking to people around the world initiating conversations that are about business and Jesus just take over and the whole conversation roll into one about HIM!!! God is so good guys. I have neglected to write a blog in along while. God has reminded me multiple times. My daughter asked me when  I would write one again because she follows it. Guys she is 9. I was taken aback, I really am slacking if my 9 year old is asking me when I was going to write again. A hard reminder to never forget that God has called me to also continue to keep this going. I have many testimonials to share from the last month or so. Places in which God shows me just how in doubt and times of struggling faith He will always be there. YES, I struggle in points of faith at times. During these points I blast the worship music and remember WHY I must keep pressing forward. My WHY is because God told me to do something. Guess what guys, because He told me to do it, I have the strongest driven passion for it. God will never ask you to do something that He didn’t create you for. He made you specifically to be who you are, to love what you love, to have specific skills and talents, and thought processes. He made you to use all of these to bring Him greater glory and be the fishers of men. (Matthew 4:19, John 21:4-17) All these things is the very thing that drives you, that pushes you, that brings you the greatest joy and happiness in life, what fulfills you and gives you reason to want to live. Don’t allow the enemy to lie to you, telling you that you are unhappy or miserable. GOD is greater. Greater is He that lives in me than he that lives of the the world. (1 John 4:4) What does this mean? This means that whatever you have going on, whatever circumstance is draining you God is greater. That negative husband, nagging wife, friend telling you that you aren’t going to make it, those waiting to see you fail, those who lie about you, or turn their backs to you. YOU BELONG TO GOD…. THAT MEANS YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!!! You can feel the hurt f the circumstance but you don’t break to it. I’ve more than taken my fair share before building this business and helping people change the direction of their life and family trees from poverty to wealth (in more ways than just financial). Now that I’m actually doing it I can’t even talk to my family about it, not because I don’t want to help them but because it’s me they want to not even know about it. So to that I say, Luke 4:24, Mark 6:4, Matthew 13:57. A prophet is not without honor EXCEPT in his own town.

Holy Spirit You are Welcome Here

Ok, guys, I know that I have been touch and go on here. I must admit this journey God has me on is awesomely wild. This past weekend was the international convention for my business and company. If you have never been affiliated with a Jesus founded and Bible based company then you haven’t ever lived. Myself and my team were recognized on stage in front of 30 thousand people. All Honor and glory be to God. There is no way I would have been able to do that or lead my partners to do that if I wasn’t following the Holy Spirit. It’s funny how things work out. God has shown me so much transpiring in the back ground. I’ve been given the stories and testimonies and struggles of leaders that are some of the most influential in network marketing and of the world. I saw others for who they really are at points. God revealed to me somethings that aren’t as wonderful. God is of the details. He plans for His beloved to be set up for life in abundance. Subsequently, that means the blessings overflow unto those around them. Couple scriptures come to mind; Psalms  105:15 and 1 Chronicles 16:22 both speak of not doing harm to the anointed and chosen of God. While Luke 4:24, Mark 6:4, and Matthew 13:57 all inform us that a prophet is not accepted in his/her home town. I realized this in a great magnitude when others whom I never thought in a million years to betray or slander me did so behind my back and then smile and plead innocents to me while being promoted through my business because of me. How often do we remember that God is one of details. I thank God for those people. I need them in my life. Without them my life wouldn’t reflect the Word of God. John 15:18-27 is a key factor. At one point even Jesus mother Mary called Him “unstable” and “unbalanced” to the crowd He was preaching to. Matthew 7:16 shows you that you must look at the fruit that a person bears to know their heart. All that has happened in my life and my business has been a strategic plan by God. As I have grown into my walk and strength in my faith I see this more so now than ever before. By His will I was able to attend an exclusive pool party hosted by the leaders of my business. It was here that you realized that these people are the ones who are highly favored by God. So much so that our ENTIRE organization were brought together by God because of how strong and devout our faith in Him is. Because He knows that we would never deny Him and bring others to Him as well as show them how to gain life in abundance with Him. Father God is so AMAZING. and Jesus continuously leaves me in AWE of Him. As the day proceeded and we had tons of fun and networked with the best of the best in the industry, in the company, and as people of faith, God had another plan in mind. There was an impromptu worship. A beautiful pianist sat at the piano and started to play. As she played 2 girls began to sing, though beautiful voices they were hard to hear over the piano. God is one of the details. Soon enough the ones meant to be there where drawn to the room. Even if they couldn’t hear the music. That is when God used my voice. God has blessed me with what is known as a “power house” voice. When He did, Holy Spirit blanketed the room so heavily and thick that a young girl gave her life to Jesus at that moment. Gentlemen, highly respected and successful,  fell into worship and praise. Tears of joyous worship and humbled praise fell from every eye. It was the single most amazing thing God has ever used me for. I pray He uses me again and again and again for bigger and greater things to glorify Him. Don’t take this testimony as a brag. I tell you because God is that AWESOME. Who am I? I am nothing but sin wrapped in flesh if it wasn’t for Jesus Christ who died on the cross for me. I can’t do anything if it wasn’t for God who wakes me up, puts air in my lungs, and tells my heart to beat. I AM NOTHING literally, with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I open my heart and myself and my life to be used by Him for His Glory.

Holy Spirit You are welcomed here. (place hand over heart) Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere. Your Holy presence is what our hearts long for. To be overwhelmed by your presence Lord.

Verse of the Day

Nehemiah 1:5

5 Then I said: “LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments,

Trust, Obey, Worship

image

Every day God has revealed Himself to me, REGARDLESS of myself. No matter my struggles. It’s AWESOME when you realize the AWESOMENESS of God. I’ve have been over the top, busting at the seems excited nonstop for days now. Not just because of things in my life but things in other’s lives too. Watching God just move with favor and blessings. Jesus, is just AWESOME. I cannot contain myself. I just can’t. I talk to everyone that has ears around me about Jesus. Because He is the only reason that my heart is full. First love and seek God before anything or anyone else. KEY TO LIFE. God is one of order. You cannot be out of order with your spirit and Jesus and expect your life to be in order. You cannot assume that you are the exception. And it’s so EASY. FIRST comes God, THEN comes marriage, maybe followed by a baby or 2. OBEDIENCE is BETTER than sacrifice. Sometimes God’s will calls you to be obedient by sacrificing. Understanding that God is absolute and forever and never changing. That His Word never returns void. Trust in God because He IS God. Obey God because He IS God. And worship God. ….. because He is God!

Who Are You?

Matthew 16:12-18 (NIV)

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 “But what about you?” He asked. “Who do you say I am?”16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in Heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hades will not overcome it.

 

In this Scripture, Jesus is stating that when we understand and get it correct. We stop missing the mark. We are in understanding with the Spirit of God. We have opened our heart and eyes to the the Truth. If something isn’t right then it’s wrong. Basic and as simple as that. When, God comes around then and He asks you who you follow, you should recognize who He is. Jesus also says that there is only one way to know that He is the Messiah, by the Holy Spirit.

Currently, I have a struggle in my life. God asked me this afternoon (about an hour ago honestly) when I was iterating with  my co workers. ” How will they ever believe in the Cross if you conform to their standards?” BE OF THE KINGDOM!!! Do not have any doubt or hesitation for who you are representing to the world, when you are the ambassador for Jesus. At time it will get lonely, and the world will look at you crazy but GOD….. allow me to repeat…. BUT GOD  is with you. I rather have God in my corner than any person.  BE who you say you are in Jesus!!! LIVE who you say you are in Jesus!!! STAY in the Kingdom and forget the world.

Can You Hear Me??

So this hits the point to a “T”, how often do we as Christians ask God to speak to us? I can tell you that I have been here. I still get to this point at times. When I don’t want to put in the work to listen, and seek God to “just tell me”. Our lives become so busy. We get caught up in the aspect of living we forget to make time for God. B.I.B.L.E. BASIC INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE LEAVING EARTH. How many of you understand this? I was a “know it all” before meeting Shane. He had his work cut out with me. It took months of fighting and tears and praying before I finally asked God to open my eyes. And literally, right there on the spot at 10 p.m. at night sitting in my car, God shed the scales from eyes. When understanding hit me I wept. The Truth of correct doctrine is absolute. I had remorse for the hard time I gave Shane and subsequently  Jesus Himself. Obedience is better than sacrifice.

 

1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV)

22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

 

Depth and understanding comes when you read the Word of God. Ask for it! Anything you ask in the name of Jesus to Father God shall be done if you believe and do not doubt! God has been moving rapidly in this season of my life. Things that He seeded in me almost 10 years ago, now has a horizon. His will in my life is doing a hostile takeover!! As nervous as it makes me, I walk by faith. We all want to see the outcome! We all want to know the future. The truth is this……. we aren’t meant to know. THAT is the POINT of faith. Faith in God means faith in His timing.

How do We do Error/Fail?

image

Matthew 22 : 29

29 Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.”

This is for the Christian.  The entire Bible is for the Christian. This staple Scripture, is reality. Why do we as Christians fail?  Because we don’t know the WORD of God……. AND/OR…… the POWER of God. Yes!  Right here Jesus Himself clearly identifies why we fail.  Many things lead up to this.  Scripture tells us to study to be approved. (2 Tim 2:5) We are to do as Jesus did and MORE.  This prompts the question,  what did Jesus do? 

Time for Learning

image

Is been a few days since I’ve made a post.  I can’t say that I’ve been really desiring to post. God is so good.  Always on time. And supplying in abundance grace and mercy.  I have noticed Him in every detail of my life. Noticing Him in every detail,  also shows me areas I struggle.  God is so good, all the time. And all the time God is good.  All good things come from God. (James 1:17) I started writing a song, based on a frowns experience currently.  Something I’ve gone through so many times.  I’ve been slacking on my studies and devotional.  Caught up in the business of life. So many things catch my attention.  I have become so much more bold in my faith and speaking up for what I believe.  I have come down to a few absolute staple scriptures for the beginning of learning the Truth. First,  understand that the Word of God is EXACT. Every Word, period,  and exclamation. Second,  what is faith? (Hebrews 11:1) What authority is given to us as ambassadors of Jesus? (Luke 10:19) Third, how do we do error/fail as followers of Jesus? (Matthew 22:29) There is so many scriptures that base off these, such as what is expected to happen to us as followers of Jesus. What we are promised.  And how to deal with situations that arise in life. From a particular pastor I have realized to notice more details that go further into studies. So much content in the Scriptures. So let’s take it slow.
