This Is Your Year

Choose to make this year the best year of your life. Everyday is a gift of God. In every decision that need to be made choose life. I choose to walk in agreement with God’s Word for my life. I know with God you cannot go wrong. His love, wisdom, and guidance will not steer you wrong. His path has been and is the best path for myself and for others. His path will shine brighter and brighter every step of the way. I choose to receive the Father’s love (God our Heavenly Father) more and more in my life. The Father’s love is a love that is undeniable and unconditional. The Father’s love is a love that daily loads you and I with benefits. That’s why I choose to make this year  a year like no other in my life. I hope that is your desire and decision you make as well. Anything great doesn’t just happen it must be planned. Plan your victories for the rest of this year.

Remove The Weeds Out of Your Spiritual Garden

The ground represents your heart in the scripture.
“The Heart Is The Difference Maker”
Whatever is manifested on the outside of your life – it has a direct relationship with what is going on the inside of your heart.

Proverbs 4:23
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. KJV.

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life. (Amp. Bible)

The heart is the production….. Your heart is the ground. Whatever seed that can planted in the grown of your heart is what will produce or manifest in your life. The seed is God’s Word. Luke 8:11
It’s not enough to read the Word of God – you have to plant God’s word in your heart to see a change in your life.

Our hearts is the production center. Our heart is the ground or garden.
We need to go to the Word of God and get specific seeds for the things I need.

I must take the responsibility and not wait for somebody else to do what I am required to do. I must plant the seed in the ground of my heart to get my manifestation.

If there is lack of fruit in your life you want to sow a seed.
You have to sow seed in the area you want growth.
God’s system is based on seed time and harvest. Genesis 8:22

I have take responsibility by getting new seed to grow a new image, to grow a new tree, to get new fruit (results).

Matthew 13:23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty

If you want to grow yourself, marriage, business, ministry, etc.
We have to expand on the inside so we can expand on the outside.

If you desire a better marriage you have to sow marriage seed.
Things that come on the outside is a result of what is planted on the inside.

Inside of us are trees that has to be uprooted. (Wrong image of self, marriage, life, etc.)

Matthew 15:13
But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted

Set aside time to sit, think, reflect and locate the appropriate seed to sow to grow
so you can expand on the inside and then will expand on the outside.

Things in our life do not get better over time.
Things get better when I know better than I can do better.

 

Romans 10:9-10

Zeal

zeal-what-it-is-where-it-comes-from-why-it-matters

Do You Have Any Zeal In Your Life?
What Are Your Zealous About?
Zeal is defined as passionate ardor in the pursuit of anything. In general, zeal is an eagerness or desire to accomplish or obtain some object, and it may be manifested either in favor or any person or thing.
David a young shepherd boy was zealous about defeating the Giant Goliath. Guess what? He ran towards him and defeated him with his slingshot and stones.
Jesus was zealous about fulfilling his mission in life. In John 2:17 Jesus stated “Zeal for your house has eaten me up.” God is zealous and passionate to save mankind from the wrath to come. God sent his only Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins so we can have eternal life and abundant life with Jesus Christ.
It is my desire you become if you not already are zealous in your discovery and fulfilling your purpose for existence. Life is a gift from God. You and I were not born to live average lives. We are born to live amazing lives and leave a legacy in the earth. Life is more than just this physical or natural realm of existence. That is one dimensional. We are three dimensional. Mankind is triparte. We are a spirit we have a soul and we live in a body. The Bible states in I Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So it is great to be passionate about being physically fit. Eating healthy. Exercising several days a week. Our bodies are the temple of God. (I Corinthians 3:16) We are instructed to Glorify God in our body. (I Corinthians 6:19-20). The scripture also states that Man does look on the outward appearance. I Samuel 16:7.
Bodily exercise does bring us profit. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. I Timothy 4:8

You can be the most physically fit person in the universe and in one moment an unexpected crisis can bring a blow that your physical fitness cannot do anything about. God never intended for us to live one dimensional.
Be zealous about your physical life as well as your soulish and spiritual life. Your soul is made up of your mind, will, intellect, and imagination. It is very important to feed your soul the Word of God. To increase your knowledge base so when life’s challenge come we won’t buckle under, quit, and give up. Proverbs 24:10 states If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. What can cause people to faint in life? Not having adequate or sufficent knowledge in that area of struggle. Proverbs 24:5 stated A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
In school if a person only got 30% correct on a exam and the maximum is 100% it’s not that they didn’t know anything. They just did not know enough to pass the exam. Jesus even commanded us to love God not only with our heart but also with all of our soul and mind. Be zealous about expanding your mind and using it to a greater degree than ever before. I see you not being stuck or stranded in any situation. You have the mind of Christ. (Philippians 2:5).
Be zealous about your spiritual life. Natural food is needed for your physical body. Spirit food is needed for your spirit (heart). Jesus said in Matthew 4:4
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Feed yourself daily by reading, reflecting, and meditating on the Word of God.
Jesus was the greatest example of three aspects of our wellbeing. Luke 2:40 And the child grew, (physical)and waxed strong in spirit, (inward man) filled with wisdom:(soul) and the grace of God was upon him.
Be zealous in every aspect of your life. Whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord, and not unto man. Colossians 3:23

 

Romans 10:9-10

X Loser

Everyone becomes a X loser when they give their hearts to Jesus Christ. The biggest loser is the enemy. Jesus defeated the enemy at Calvary.
Colossians 2:14-15 Having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
When you receive Christ in your life you were translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light.
Colossians 1:12-13 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
The Enemy’s Kingdom which is the kingdom of darkness represents defeat, fear, failure, guilt, shame, sickness, disease, hatred, and every evil thing.
Jesus’ Kingdom represents love, life, light, peace, victory, joy, health, wisdom, and every good thing.
So any loses you experienced in the past do not define you. Because that is not who God made you. Simply because the Bible states in I John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
You become a born winner. There is no failure and no defeat in God. As a matter fact God does not have any fear to give us. There are many scriptures in the Bible that speak of victory.
II Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
With God all things become new. I encourage you to live a winner’s life, by getting a picture(s) of who you desire to become and do in life. Learn the principles of God’s Word to guide you toward your desired result. Practice the principles daily and allow your life to be transformed. That will bring you fulfillment and God honor in your life.

Romans 10:9-10

Yield

red-yield-sign-mean_67ef0dc0e04f0bad

A yield sign indicates that a driver must prepare to come to a full stop and yield to vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians and vehicles with the right-of-way if either are present. If neither is present, the driver may proceed without stopping. If you are assuming it will be clear and it isn’t, you’ll stop late and perhaps block part of their path or perhaps have your vehicle struck by another vehicle. The point I am making is we must not ignore the “yield” signs.
However in life we must not stay in the fast lane so much that we miss God’s divine signals to yield and we keep going fast. What will happen, you will miss something very important that you need to know in this season of your life. I felt impressed to do an acronym on the word “yield”. I trust it will help you to remember not to miss your moment or take advantage of the moment God has created for you.
Y – Yes to start everyday with God in prayer and reading His Word. God would love to reveal to you what you need for that day if you slow down to ask Him. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
I – Inquire of the Lord as often as needed. Don’t go through your day making assumptions about issues of life. James 4:3You have not because you ask not. Prayer is constant dialogue with the Lord. Prayer is all day living. Ask the Lord how you should handle this situation? How shall you respond to this issue? The Lord will show you.
E- Eyes. Keep your eyes fastened on the Word. Your solution is in Word. Psalms 34:4 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.

L- Listen. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word. You have to listen in order to have faith to find entrance into your heart. Proverbs 8:33-35 Hear instruction and be wise, And do not disdain it. 34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors.35 For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the LORD;
D- Doer. After you have slowed down enough to hear and receive the relevant Word for your situation. Then put your foot on your faith pedal and accelerate in completing your task, assignment, and goal.
James 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
