How Are You Known

Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are”, quoted by French lawyer, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, in 1800’s. But we know the statement as; ‘you are what you eat’.

This goes so much further than what we physically put in our mouth. It also applies to; we are what we think, what we say, what we watch, and what we do.

Consider what you’re feeding yourself, whether it be the company you keep, what you read, watch on tv, and where you spend your time. Positive or negative, it will determine what you think, what you speak, what you watch and eventually, what you do.

Keep in mind; you are known by your fruit.

 Proverbs 13:2 (KJV) – a man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth; but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

Matthew 12:33 (KJV) – either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

 

 

Leave It Where It Is

Are you feeding your past, especially the negative, as though it’s going to change? Our past is our past, and it’s going to be what it is, for eternity.  There is nothing we can do about it.

Stop nurturing your past by thinking about it all the time. Stop trying to make your past change, because it’s not. It steals your joy and your peace.

Do something for your future, move forward and leave your past where it is.  Live in peace and joy, on purpose!

Philippians 3:13 (KJV) – brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.

John 14:27 (KJV) – peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

 

 

Across The Bridge

There’s a bridge, that we need, to get us to a place that we can not get to on our own.

Jesus is that bridge to carry us over the trouble, the sin that so holds us bondage.

We have been given grace, that allows us to move forward in our lives, to walk us through the valley, that forgives or sins, that sets us free.

Let Jesus lead you across the bridge, to a life surrendered to God.

You are saved by grace.

Ephesians 3:8 (KJV) – unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is the grace given, that should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.

Ephesians 2:8 (KJV) – for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

It’s Hard

Whatever it is that’s hard for you to let go of, could be the very thing that’s keeping you from receiving your blessing.

Resist the devil, and he will flee.

James 4:7 (KJV) – submit yourself therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Keep It 100

We have a tendency of blaming others for our downfalls. Quick to blame someone else.

We are responsible for our own actions, our own decisions. Keep it 100! Stop blaming your wounds on someone else.

Romans 2:1 (KJV) – therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself, for thou that judgest doest the same things.

Fight For What You Want

If you’re convicted in what you want – what you hope for, and you know it’s in line with the word of God, don’t take no for an answer. Don’t give up.

Satan will try to hit you where he knows you’re weak, to make you lose your hope. But, if you stand strong in God’s word, you can sustain the blow.

Fight the good fight of faith. Don’t back down from satan. God gave you power over all the power of satan. Use it and claim the victory!

Luke 10:19 (KJV) – behold, I give unto you, power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

II Timothy 4:7 (KJV) – I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

Let Jesus Answer The Door

There’s always some type of situation knocking at our door. But, every situation we face is not from satan. There are so many of us, who do not see it as something good or coming from God. Therefore, when a situation knocks, we answer, see it has something bad, and try to handle it ourselves.

Our situations are to stretch our faith, strengthen us, teach us, and to remove those things that don’t fit who we are.

Let Jesus answer the door to your situations. Trust Him to fight for you. You will be so glad you did.

Proverbs 8:34 (KJV) – blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my door.
