Are you Available?

I know that the Lord is speaking to me. Prayers that I have lifted up to Him are being answered. My life should first and foremost be about living for God and walking His Word out in my life.

If you don’t mind, I would like to speak to the ladies for minute. (though this applies to the Body of Christ as a whole)

Ladies, may we not be complacent. There is so much out in this world that we can be doing. We have influence to use for all the right reasons. As godly women will we just sit back or become the active hands, feet and mouthpieces for Christ ? Pray and ask the Lord to stir up the desires that may be dormant in your heart, to wash away any thoughts that tell you that you are not capable of doing a certain task.

If God brings you to it He will bring you through it.

The Word tells us:

Philippians 4:13 NKJV
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

So…………..Are you available?

Signing Up For Kingdom Work Requires Selflessness

Now this is just a LIE disguised in a pretty Unique word sugarcoated by the enemy until you read the fine print! ( above picture )

“Just because you are unique does not mean you are useful” (LIES LIES LIES of the deceiver!)

If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work. (2 Timothy 2:21 NLT)

God can take anything and any person regardless of what society says or thinks and use it for good. If you are feeling worthless, undeserving, crippled, bound by sin as well as any other thought that may apply to your life as you see it or the above pic of not being perfect or at least equipped to be used by Him, I am telling you right now to REBUKE that lie and to speak truth into yourself.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. (Isaiah 55:8 AMP)

Jesus did not die in vain. He did not die AFTER you came into a position to meet him once you have “gotten your life together” enough to be before his presence. We will never have it together enough in this life.

He will meet you right where you are. Broken, shattered, lost in darkness, and full of sin. Come out from hiding behind your reasons and excuses of why you are not worthy, why you are not ready and your why why why list of reasons for not stepping out and doing what the Lord has called you to do.

He will equip you in every way no matter how you view circumstances with the natural eye. Trust Him. If you say you love him and trust him enough with your eternal salvation to live in heaven versus hell then why not trust him enough to lead you to do Kingdom work?

Our God is in the business of refining, repairing and restoring.

Our life is not our own. We have been bought with a price. We are not to be lazy or passive and just sit around waiting for Christ to come back and get us, we are not to just live this human life as we do with no greater purpose.

Take the spiritual gifts that you have been given by the Lord and use them. Lives are awaiting to receive the Savior, to receive a word of encouragement, to be blessed with a helping hand with your time and talents. Whatever you have been called to do, do it with love and selflessness and may it be done unto the Lord with joy and a humble heart.

The Great Commission

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.(Matt.28:18-20 NKJV)

God bless you all at you take the courage to step outside yourself and your limitations for they are only of human thoughts of how change will manifest. The Lord will not lead you into the unknown without preparing you. He will send people into your life as well as the Holy Spirit to aid and comfort you.

In Christ I exhort you….

Salt Shaker: Let Your Light Shine

20120320-072907.jpg

Believers Are Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
( Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV )

We are in perilous times when our faith will be tested. Will you stand? Will you cower down and not say a word? Jesus is calling us out to keep our salt flavored and to use it; not to keep it covered or hidden. This is a mighty dark world we live in and it is not getting any better. Until our Savior comes back for us, be a light in the middle of darkness. Do not be ashamed and do not conform on any level.

HE’S NOT ASHAMED OF YOU SO PLEASE DON’T BE ASHAMED OF HIM

People are dying every day not knowing of Christ or the salvation he’s given. Those of us in Christ already know of his goodness and mercy and we can testify to that. It’s time to share in spirit and in truth amongst those who do not.

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!

20120320-100809.jpg

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), (Ephesians 5:8, 9 NKJV)
