Happy Friday Good People….
Today I was moved to read John 6… I try to constantly maintain a good relationship with God. My morning times are times when its quiet and I can think and pour out my heart to Him and oftentimes he will direct me to scriptures.
“There’s a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?”
Life happens, so at times we only have a little time, a little energy, a little money, and a little sanity to give. Not only to give to God but to give to people.
I oftentimes get caught up with thinking I’m not spending enough time with God or people, but today God spoke give what little you have. So even if I wake up in the morning late and my designated time with God is cut short still give the little. Even if its a simple text to see if people are alright still do it. And even if its my last dime but my neighbor needs it still give it. You see God is a God of multiplying. The little we give He will multiply times 10. Just like the little 2 fish the boy gave God was able to feed thousands.
So let’s continue to give people even if we think its little God can and still does use this…..
While reading and meditating on John 2 a verse stuck out;
Then his disciples remembered this prophecy from the scriptures: “Passion for Gods house will consume me.”
The above scripture is in reference to Jesus getting upset with the people selling things at His temples. It wasn’t the mere fact that they were selling things there but the focus had shifted. The people were to come there for true worship and prayer but instead they got distracted and redirected to worldly visions and things.
Then comes this seemingly quiet man in His anger whipping people, turning over tables, and kicking people out of the temple. I can clearly see the shock on peoples face as a man who was so gentle do something outrageous. But sometimes……. It takes you doing something outrageous to get the resilults that you want. I dare you to dream BIG for 2017, sit back, write the vision, and then Just like Jesus do something outrageous to fulfill your destiny.
Now if it involves making whips, turning over tables, and kicking folks out of stuff I suggest you consult God with that before you begin..😂😂😂😂
Good morning family!!!!!
As we are coming into the new year and I am subconsciously detoxing (just figured this out this morning) I wanted to extend some advice. Watch your circle. During prayer and meditation I was reading and while reading the commentary this thought came to mind. DO NOT FULLY TRUST PEOPLE…. In the Bible Jesus never said trust people He said trust Him. Even Jesus did not trust humans because He knew what mankind was really like;
New Living Translation (NLT)
24 But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew all about people. 25 No one needed to tell him about human nature, for he knew what was in each person’s heart.
These verses come after Jesus had performed some miracles. There were people who only trusted Him or were only wanting to be close to Him for what He could do not for who He was. I believe this is an example we should follow here on Earth. Evaluate your circle and all in your life. If the people in it are not people of purpose, share goals of success and God’s love, then I think it’s time to cleanse your circle.
Detoxing your life and circle can actually be a lonely place but it will be a place of thinking and peace. I am a strong believer that while you detox to pray and God will align people in your life that will push you towards your destiny.
Moral of the story: If Jesus didnt even trust people who were trying to get next to Him and be in His presence why should we………
For unto us a child is born…. Merry Christmas to my WordPress family…
Isaiah 43:18-20New International Version (NIV)
18 “Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
If we focus on the old things in life we can not be blessed into our future. This is food for thought that applies not only to relationships but mind frames, actions, experiences. God wants to bring something new in our lives so we must shift our mind frames consciously and subconsciously so that we can walk into our DESTINY….
ENJOY UR DAY LOVED ONES
