The Power of Patience

The Christian race is NOT A COMPETITION. It’s not a point of who is the greatest, or the most powerful. It is the point of ENDURANCE. It is just like Jesus said; he that endures unto THE END shall be saved. In other words, if you stay in THE FAITH, and don’t fall away, or draw back, or give up in your salvation; then you will enter the kingdom of heaven with joy. You see, there’s a lot of people who started out, but didn’t hold out. There’s a lot of people who began in Christ; but didn’t finish their course in Him. PATIENCE is one of the keys to ENDURANCE. We must not be hasty, and rush around in our journey through life. We must take each day as it comes, and handle each trial as it presents itself, and overcome each test and temptation in the GRACE OF GOD, and in the mercy He gives us each day. You see, although Jesus had a great work; yet He never RUSHED, OR RAN to get it done. He just trusted His Father in the processes, and therefore HE PREVAILED. (St.Matt.10:22/ Ecc.9:11/ Heb.10:36/ Heb.6:12

PEACE

(Philippians 4:6-7) In the midst of everything that may be coming against you: let your Peace be non-negotiable: your Joy be Unrelenting: and your faith be Unwavering. It is easy to give up when you’re Discouraged by circumstances: but it God’s promises that keeps us Encouraged; because we know that heaven and earth will pass away; but HIS WORD WILL STAND: and if we rely upon His Word; then we will be able to stand also. You see! it is our TRUST IN GOD that gives us peace and solace; in that we are confident that He will NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE US; and that He will not only Provide for our need; but He will Protect us from the noisome pestilence, and from hidden dangers. Cast ALL YOUR CARES upon the Lord today, and receive His perfect peace that passes all understanding. The Lord knows how to comfort His people.

Changing for the better

{Jeremiah 29:11~ For I know the Thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord. thoughts of Peace, and not of evil, to give you an Expected End.} God has already expressed His Own thoughts & plans for us. Now we must make the decision to follow through with what He lays upon our heart to fulfill, so that we can have a life of PEACE & FULLNESS through Him. You see, Real CHANGE FIRST BEGINS IN YOUR HEART. Listen! when you make up your mind to DO BETTER; then you can BECOME BETTER. Regardless of how good you may think things are now; there is still always room for IMPROVEMENT. Sometimes change can be a challenge; depending upon what it is you’re changing: but nevertheless if it’s going to better your LIFE, and better your HEALTH, and better your SOUL; then it’s worth the effort to do so. There are times when it is necessary to change TRADITIONS, CUSTOMS, AND EVEN RELIGIONS; in order to live happy, and the way God intended for us to live. Ask God to give you a new level of INSIGHT, PERSPECTIVE & COMPREHENSION that will empower you to be all that you can be, in your CALLING, MINISTRY & PURPOSES which He has ordained for you.

Displaced Emotions

There’s nothing wrong with EMOTIONS: because God created us with them; in order to help us express ourselves in ways that we often cannot speak & put into words. The main problem that gets in the way is HOW we express our emotions. There is a TIME & SEASON for everything. We must not allow our emotions to just get out of complete control; to where we are out of order. When we let our Emotions get DISPLACED; then that’s when we get in all kinds of trouble, and get Confused with things. Beloved! keep yourself, and your mind in tack with God’s Word, and within Good Reason. Now, we should pay attention to our feeling, but we should not let them guide us against what our Good Reason & Conscious is predicting, or revealing to us: because sometimes THEY CAN BE WRONG.
