Give up outdated beliefs……


THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

As the year is coming to an end I have been thinking about my beliefs.

What we believe is really important in the bigger scheme of things.

Because the truth of the matter is, what you believe will always override potential.

No matter how much potential you have, what you believe will determine

what you do and can do in life.

I remember reading how circus elephants are trained. When they are young

they tie them to a tree or something they won’t be able to break. When

they grow up the trainers still tie them to that same object fully convinced they won’t

break free and the elephants despite their incredible size and weight  don’t break free

even though they could if they tried. They have been conditioned from childhood that

they can’t break the cord so they don’t try!

 

YAH has put so much potential in us but if we think we can’t do it then that’s exactly

what will happen, we won’t do it!

We need to get rid of outdated beliefs. Those negative beliefs will stop us dead in our tracks.

YAH has so much in store for us but we need to take a long hard look at the beliefs we hold

in every area of our lives.

The conditioning has been going on for a very long time and that is why we need to take time

when looking at the different beliefs we hold.

The way you will know a belief is wrong is by holding it up to the Word of God.

The word is TRUTH, not A truth but THE truth.

And realize that all it takes for a belief to be a negative belief is it to be inconsistent with the

word of God. It doesn’t need to be out rightly wrong or bad, it just needs to be slightly different from

what the word of God says!

 

I know there are some outdated beliefs I am still operating in, holding on to.

But I bring them to YAH and ask Him to change them with new beliefs, beliefs that

are based on His unchanging TRUTH.

It’s only by changing my beliefs that I can fully maximize my potential.

You can’t work at your maximum potential if your beliefs are wrong.

 

As we say goodbye to 2017 and say hello to 2018 let’s look at the erroneous beliefs that

we have been living with. Beliefs that we didn’t necessarily give ourselves but were kind of

given to us when we didn’t know better.

What beliefs are you living by today?

Let the Word of God be your measure.

Are the beliefs you living by propelling you or stifling you??

Are they in line with the Word of God or contradicting it?

 

As I close remember that self belief will always override potential.

YAH has a bright future for you (read Jeremiah 29:11) so get rid of outdated beliefs

that will stop you from walking into the amazing things He has for you.

 

Bless you friends….

The answer to the chaos around us…..


THOUGHT OF THE DAY

peace

“Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath

to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. 

Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid

[Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; 

and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated

and cowardly and unsettled.]

John 14:27 (emphasis mine)

 

It’s a choice to walk in peace.

When things get crazy you have a choice to be at peace or lose

your mind.

The word is very clear about this,

 

“Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be 

afraid.

 

When things are not going your way do not let your hearts

be troubled.

It’s not easy staying in peace but Jesus wants us to fight for it.

Refuse to succumb to anxious thoughts.

Refuse to panic and fret.

Choose peace.

 

“Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; 

and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated

and cowardly and unsettled. “

 

There is so much opportunity to lose our peace today.

Put on the news, read the papers, talk to people and you will

see it as clear as day.

But Jesus goes against the grain. He doesn’t advocate us

succumbing to fear. Instead He tells us to stay in peace.

He encourages us to walk in the peace He has given us.

 

Today the word is simple, stay in peace no matter what!

When fear, terror, confusion, and anxiety come, stay in peace.

Easier said than done I know.

But we are not alone. The Holy Spirit will help us in our

weaknesses.

The bad news will keep coming but despite being surrounded

by such darkness hold on to peace.

We can’t afford to live without peace.

Peace is found in His word, it’s found in prayer as you

commune with Him.

Let’s choose peace today!

Is Doing Something Great For God the Most Important Thing?


Solomon was the wisest, richest, most prosperous man that ever lived! He was the son of one of the greatest kings that ever lived. What a resume!! God had amazing plans for Solomon no doubt.
But somewhere down the line he missed it. There is a very important lesson to learn from his life.
Solomon had it in his heart to finish off the temple his father David wanted to build for God. But as Solomon was building God says something pretty profound to him. It could of been a warning. Whatever it was it was profound. This is what God told him:

The word of God came to Solomon saying, “About this Temple you are building – what’s important is that you live the way I’ve set out for you and do what I tell you, following my instructions carefully and obediently.
Then I’ll complete in you the promise I made to David your father. I’ll personally take up my residence among the Israelite’s – I won’t desert my people Israel.”  1 Kings 11-13

Wow right!! Could it have been possible that Solomon thought building the Temple would bring him closer to God??? Did He think God would love him more because of what he was building??? Did he think God would be even more pleased with him because of this “great work” he was doing because it was great!!!????

How many of us are like that. We rely on our works and think that’s enough but it’s not. Your destiny is not determined upon how much you do. It is determined on your obedience to living according to God’s word. So for example, you may travel around the world meeting the needs of orphans. That doesn’t mean God is more pleased with you than with the person who followed the call of God to serve in his local church to be a kids minister!!! Being a pastor doesn’t mean God loves you more than a young person who serves in his youth group!!! What matters is if you are following the path God has laid out for you and if you are listening to Him!!!

And this is what I think God was trying to tell Solomon. Let us determine to be people who do what God tells us to do and who follow the path God has laid out for us.

Are You Full or Hungry???


This is a new thing I am going to do. I will be jotting down thoughts that I have had for the day. There are thoughts that I know I should share but I don’t because I don’t have an avenue to do it, but that changes from today. Hope you enjoy them and I hope they inspire you!!!!!

 

The full man has no use for honey, but to the man in need of food every bitter thing is sweet.   Proverbs 27:7

 

Principle:  The word is showing us how important it is to live a life that is hungry. Hungry to grow, and hungry to learn. Once you get to a place that says, I have arrived you are in trouble! The full man will turn down even the best opportunities because he is “full”!!! Are you “full”?

 

When you are hungry you will begin to see things other people don’t normally see. When you are hungry you will do things that seem out of the ordinary to other people. When you are hungry nothing can stop you from reaching your goal…..

Which person do you want to be like, the man who is full or the hungry person? The decision is all yours…..!
