Surrender

Surrender
Self-control, anger, depression

Sins of the flesh must be surrendered to Christ. Weak in the flesh, tired from sinning; I cry out to Jesus asking Him to take over. “I surrender God! I am useless without you. I need you more than I need to have control, anger and depression. I want more of you than of me, so I must step aside and let you live more in me. Help me to overcome, surrender, and to see how you plan for me to live in victory. I’ve got to wash this sin away one more day, one more hour, I’ve got to let it go and give into your presence if I ever want to live a life worth eternity. So, I’m giving it all to you once again, I’m giving into you, in hope to be free, to be free of me.”

What sins are you dealing with? Which ones way you down like heavy chains? These are strongholds that must be dealt with head on. They will not leave easily when you’ve been carrying them around for so long. Prayer, discipline, and fasting will help and determination to live for Christ and die t…

Money will Fade Away

"The hot sun rises and the grass withers; the little flower droops and falls, and its beauty fades away. In the same way, the rich will fade away with all of their achievements." James 1:11

Money will fade away and all the happiness it promised to give the receiver most likely gone with it. All material wealth is temporary and can not be contained. That's why the Word says this: "Believers who are poor have something to boast about, for God has honored them. And those who are rich should boast that God has humbled them. They will fade away like a flower in the field." James 1:9-10

Why should the poor boast that God has honored them? What honor is there in being poor? While the rich are busy planning their next vacation or big purchase the poor have more time to build their character and grow spiritually in the fruit of the spirit and with this their's no regrets. When we have more physically we tend to be too distracted to spend the time needed with God to …

Held in Captivity

"So, I say let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you want be doing what your sinful nature craves." Galatians 5:16 Alot of christians are leaving the holy spirit out of their walks, they are like the israelites held in captivity by the babylons, their hearts have grown cold, and they are self-righteous in their religious ways but do not know the voice of the Lord and do not practice what they preach in private, they have a secret life which is not pleasing to God and is only bringing pleasure to their flesh. Read Jeremiah 27-29 in full to see the state or our nation and our people even today. 


"If you look for me wholeheartedly you will find me." Jeremiah 29:13
"Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit." Romans 8:5 Read all of Romans 8-10 for a thorough understanding of what the Lord is saying as He showed me this morning my people a…

Happiness with Contentment is True Wealth

Got Happiness? 
it's only temporary without the foundation which is contentment. 

Happiness with contentment is true wealth. We could all benefit from being more content with where we are and what we have. Is it just me or do we always want something else on that perfect salad or pizza? It's so easy to see what's missing from our life instead of devouring what we have and enjoying every bite. 

Learn with me what Philippians 4:11 says about this, "for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength."
