Siding with doubt…..


THOUGHT OF THE DAY

Let’s make something very clear, there is no justification to side with doubt. There is no situation in life that

makes it okay to walk in doubt . No matter how bad things are, or impossible they seem, we should always

side with faith.

I did that recently. I was in a situation where the odds seemed bleak and guess what I did? You guessed right,

I began to doubt if YAH would come through. I am not talking about doubting and then coming back to my

senses and trusting YAH. No, I am talking about a resignation, a buckling to the pressure and deciding the

situation was lost, making a decision that nothing could be done!

 

We need to always have faith no matter how dim things appear. There is a a story in the bible that perfectly

illustrates what I am talking about;

 

“Jesus was still speaking to her when some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. 

The men said, “Your daughter is dead. There is now no need to bother the teacher.”

But Jesus paid no attention to what the men said. He said to the synagogue ruler, 

“Don’t be afraid; only believe.” 

Mark 5:35, 36

 

Yeshua did not allow the man to entertain doubt. As soon as the men spoke to the ruler, Yeshua urged

him to believe, to not falter, to not doubt.

One could argue that there would be nothing wrong if the man simply accepted the news and went his

way. His daughter had died after all. But Yeshua wouldn’t have any of that. He challenged the man’s faith.

He challenged him to take his faith a step further.

Like I said in the beginning, there is no situation that warrants us to walk in doubt and unbelief.

We need to always side with faith no matter how dark a situation seems. Even when everyone is telling

you there is no way, side with faith, stand on it, declare it.

Doubt is not from YAH. Doubt makes it hard for Him to work in our lives.

Doubt makes it hard for us to see His power and miracles. It makes no room for Him to move.

 

When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were commanded to bow down to the kings statue this is how

they responded;

 

“You can throw us into the blazing furnace. The God we serve is able to save us from the furnace and your

power. If He does this, it is good. 

But even if God does not save us, we want you, our king, to know this: 

We will not serve your gods. We will not worship the gold statue you have set up.”

Daniel 3:7

 

There was no compromising even in the face of a blazing furnace. They would trust YAH even if it meant

death! And that’s the kind of attitude we should have when it comes to faith.

Doubt must have no room in our lives. We should always choose faith.

Even when the whole world is doubting, choose faith. Don’t ever side with doubt.

 

“The just shall live by faith” is what the word teaches us so let’s do exactly that, walk by faith.

 

Bless you friends!

What true wisdom looks like……


THOUGHT OF THE DAY

wisdom

Hey friends!!

I hope I find you all well!

As the year closes I want to talk to you about something I was

thinking about recently.

 

“The Son of Man came eating and drinking [with others], and they

say, behold a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors

and [especially wicked] sinners!

Yet wisdom is justified and vindicated by what she does (her 

deeds) and by her children. “

Matthew 11:19

 

“Yet wisdom is justified and vindicated by what she does

(her deeds) and by her children.”

 

I was challenged by this verse. Do I really have wisdom?

After all, wisdom is justified and vindicated by her deeds and by

her children (fruit)

Wisdom is reflected by action and fruit!

Is there fruit in my life?

I can say I have wisdom but is it translating into works and am I

bearing fruit?

If there is no fruit in my life I am not really wise!

If I am really wise there will be action and there will be fruit

in abundance!

Wisdom will compel us to act, to stand up and make the

change! Wisdom does that.

 

This was hard to receive because I realized I haven’t really

taken the time to meditate on the things I have received.

I haven’t really put acting out what I know as the top

priority.

I need to be more deliberate and determined about applying

the wisdom I have received. It’s not enough to acquire

information.

 

Wisdom is justified and vindicated by what she does (her

deeds) and by her children.

 

I want to really walk in wisdom. I am not content on just knowing

stuff cause that is not wisdom. Real wisdom is followed by action

and fruit! With real wisdom comes change.

If there is no improvement in my life and no fruit to show ‘

then I am living deceived!

 

If you are in the same boat I am in there is hope! We can start

2017 anew. We can make a decision to start again but this

time with a new understanding.

The Holy Spirit will help us if our desire is to walk in real

wisdom. I truly believe it. We may have blown it but we have a

second chance at this.

Have an amazing 2017 friends.

Bless you

What Is Wisdom Really?


How would you describe wisdom? I have heard so many definitions. Is wisdom just about acquiring information?
The Word of God is very clear on what wisdom really is. And I would like to help bring light in this area. Understand that wisdom is not the same as knowledge. Having knowledge is about information. We can read up on a certain topic and get knowledge about that topic but that is not wisdom. Wisdom goes a bit further because it focuses on application. What are you doing with the knowledge you have? It’s not enough just to have it. I can know a thousand ways to make money but if I don’t use the methods I am not being wise.
I am speaking about wisdom and what it really is. Let’s go to scripture.

In Matthew 11:7-19 where Jesus is speaking about John the Baptist. I am going to focus on the end of His speech in verse 19 where He says something so profound on wisdom. He says:

Yet wisdom is justified and vindicated by what she does (her deeds) and by her children.

People will know you have wisdom by your actions. The word says wisdom is JUSTIFIED and VINDICATED by what she does. Your actions speak a whole heap. You may say you know this or have done this course but your actions will vindicate and justify you.
Wisdom is also justified and vindicated by her children. Children speak of fruit. What fruit is being produced in your life? Let me give you an example, someone can say they know what love is, but if that person hates everyone then he really doesn’t know what love is. His fruit is not consistent with what he is saying. He is not wise and even though he says he has wisdom in the area of love his actions say something else.
What is wsdom really?
So in a nutshell, wisdom is saying something and your actions following what you say. Even to the point where you bear the right fruit.
Are you walking in wisdom? Do your actions and the fruit you produce reflect the wisdom you have?
