How Are You Walking?

God will give us all assignments or moments in our life as a way of training our spirit, our integrity, our patience, our loyalty, and mostly our love that we say we have for Him. So we go through things sometimes and have to find out for ourselves that we don’t necessarily  live what we say we believe.

Galatians 5:22-23,25 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, (23) Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.(25) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

How are you walking?

Are you are walking in LOVE?

Are you walking in JOY?

Are you walking in PEACE?

Are you walking in  LONGSUFFERING (without complaining)?

Are you walking in GENTLENESS?

Are you walking in GOODNESS?

Are you walking in FAITH?

Are you walking in MEEKNESS?

Are you walking in TEMPERANCE?

ARE YOU WALKING IN THE HOLY SPIRIT? YOUR WALK CAN BE SEEN!

Are You In This World & Of This World

Who told you, you had to be married, have 3 children, work for Corporate America, be the best at everything, have 5,000 friends, be on all social media sites, go to college, weigh 115 pounds, make six figures, and take the best selfies?

You don’t have to be what the world tells you to be. You don’t have to be what everyone else expects you to be. You just have to be what God said for you to be. What did God call you to as an individual? What did God say was on the inside of you? What is your purpose (other than of course to praise and worship Him)? What has He said for you to do, to go, to be?

Listen to no one before you listen to your Father in Heaven. He already know the plans He has for you. He already knows your strengths and weaknesses. He already knows you can’t do it without Him. He already knows the truth and secrets about you….

so guess what….He knows exactly what you need. Let Him show you, give it to you, and train you in the promises He has just for you. He will send people along the way to help you when it’s needed. I promise.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Is Your Sin-Your Idol?

When we read the Bible we learned of the people who worshiped false gods/idols. And today we need to recognize that just because it is not the golden calf, the statues, or Baal does not mean we have not created our own god. Your golden calf can be your relationship with your significant other, you body, your looks, your money , your house, your car, or just material things. Your Baal can be your lover, your greed for attention from people, your friend you gossip with, your self righteousness because people tend to praise you for your opinions/advice, or like most of us your electronic devices.

Lets look at the things in our lives that is or could potentially be or become our idol. Look at the things you give the most attention to. Look at the people you have surrounded yourselves with. Look at what is coming out of you that gives permission for those foul spirits to even be in your presence. Look at you and self evaluate the sins that you are still entertaining because the of the temptation that is so appealing. Look at the way you don’t put up a fight for what is right but lay down because you think you wont win the battle.

Is your sin your idol? If so, it’s time to take it to the altar and burn it, or else it may make you become the sacrifice for it to live.

Loving Intentionally

This blog on today is to remind not only you but also myself of the fact that we all need to be intentional when it comes to God and the things of God. Lets pray more, seek Him more, read His Word more, find out who we are more. And while we are doing that, we also need to pay attention to our natural environment more. Eat better, drink more water, eat the fruits and vegetables, exercise, get more sleep, and make sure overall our temple is taken care of.

By doing all of those things, which are ACTIONS we are loving God intentionally. We are not our own. Everything He has done, is doing, and will do is for our good. But what have we done, are doing, and going to do has to be because we love our God intentionally, by showing him through everything that we say and do.
