It Always Work Out

Most times, we go through things because we’ve made a choice that contradicts what God wants for us, and God is trying to get our attention to show us something, that is for our good.

Regardless of what it is, the outcome will reveal a truth about yourself. Receive it, it’s a gift that will push you forward, make u stronger, and take you to a place you would never imagine.

Whatever is revealed to you, use it to help others. It wasn’t just meant for you.

Romans 8:28 (KJV) – and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose.

Lift Him Up

We lift up people by praising them for their good works, and their accomplishments. And that’s great!

Ask yourself, when was the last time you praised God? When was the last time you lifted Him up? Praise Him — he woke you up!

Psalms 47:6 (KJV) – sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

Psalm 96:4 (KJV) – for the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

Who Do We Think We are

Don’t you get frustrated when you keep doing something for someone, and you feel like they don’t appreciate it. And after a while, you feel like they expect it from you. But, when you need them, they don’t come through for you. You feel like it’s a one way street.

You bottle it in, and after a while, the time comes and you say; “after all I’ve done for you”. You’re frustrated and think to yourself, you don’t want to help that person again. You are tired of feeling like you’re being used. So, you throw your hands up, and make a decision that you are done, and let them ask for what they want from someone else.

The time comes again, and they ask for your help. You give them a piece of your mind and tell them how you feel, how they make you feel used, and they don’t want to be there for you when you need them. Whew — You feel better and hope they learned their lesson. You don’t care if they are mad or not, you just want them to know, you are not going to let them keep asking from you, and not wanting to help you when you ask.

Now, think about how we treat God. He constantly does things for us — all the time. Gets us out of trouble — all the time. Doing us favors — all the time. Giving us things we don’t deserve — all the time. And when he ask us to do something, we don’t come through for Him. And half the time, we forget what He has done for us, and act like we don’t appreciate it. Love your enemy — NOT! Bless them that curse you — NOT! Don’t treat that person that way — NOT!

Who do we think we are? God owes us absolutely nothing. We expect God to do everything we ask of Him, but we don’t come through for him. Do you feel like you’re using God? Thank God, He doesn’t hold it all in, throw his hands up, give up on us, give us a piece of his mind and say; “after all I’ve done for you”. He doesn’t treat us like we treat others, or even, how we treat Him.

God loves us so much, that He gave His Son for us, so that we may live. The least we can do is, love God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind. And love our neighbor has we love ourselves, even if they can’t or don’t come through for us.

Luke 6: 30-35 KJV) – give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye, love them which love you what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what this I have ye?for sinners also do even the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Matthew 5:44-45 (KJV) – but I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and in the unjust.

John 3:16 (KJV) – for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Luke 10:27-28 (KJV) – and he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

Faith Is

Faith is believing for something you hope to have, and you don’t see any evidence of the thing that you hope for.

Faith is when things are at their worst. Faith is when the bottom has dropped out. Faith is when you cannot take another step on your own. Faith is not worrying about a situation. Faith is trusting God in that situation.

You cannot see faith, you cannot feel faith.

Faith is where you grow, where you stretch, where you conquer!

When you’re trusting God, you may not know that you are growing in your faith, but you are. You will know when your faith has grown, when that same circumstance come again, and your reaction is different, and it doesn’t affect you like it did before.

Faith is how you live a victorious life! Start living your life on purpose, with a purpose, VICTORIOUSLY, by living on the promises of God, through faith!

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) – now faith is the substance of things hope for, the evidence of things not seen.

II Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) – for we walk by faith, not by sight.

I Corinthians 2:5 (KJV) – that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

Hater Nation

Those that don’t want to wish you well, hope that you fail, and can never find anything good to say about you, can be know as . . .haters.

What’s sad about a hater is, they are the ones that’s unhappy. The person that’s being hated on, probably don’t know the hater is hating on them.

You never have a hater doing better than you. They always have a problem with what you’re being blessed with. They are always trying to knock you down, but what they don’t understand is, they are blessing you. The more they speak against you, the more God will prosper you.

If you have all the characters of a hater, make some positive changes before you self-destruct. If you know you’re being hated on, thank your haters for sending blessings upon you, as well as, pray for them.

As long as the hater doesn’t Get It, the hater will Get Got!

Proverbs 3:27 (KJV) – withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

Proverbs 3:33 (KJV) – the curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

Proverbs 24:16 ( KJV ) – for a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again, but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Proverbs 27:17 (KJV) – rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth.

God Is Love

Valentine’ Day is a day to show love and to celebrate affection towards loved ones. With that, our words of expression play a huge part in our affection. We go out and buy cards to read what comes closest to what we want to say.

Loving others and showing affection is of God, because God is love. We just have to realize who our first love is. And that is God, everyone else is secondary. We should love God with everything we are.

Matthew 22:37 (KJV) – Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

I John 4:16 (KJV) – and we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in Him.

Show Good Over Evil

Did you know, holding anything against anyone is a sin?

In the natural, when someone does us wrong, we want to give it back to them. In the Spirit, we should forgive them, and live at peace with all men. We are to overcome evil with good.

Remember as I said before, what we say or do to someone, will come back on us. Whether good or bad.

Romans 12:17-18 (KJV) – recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

Romans 12:21 (KJV) – be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
