1. Change your thoughts

Whenever you are caught up in a situation that might cause you to think negatively and cause you to have negative emotions towards a particular situation shift your mindset into something good and set your focus on something different that will cause you to have a good feeling or good emotions about yourself so that you can react in the right way and not let those negative emotions overwhelm you, overpower you and control your destiny.

For the Bible states it perfectly, it says…Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Proverbs 12:2.

2. Avoid sharing your emotions or feelings with negative minded people.

Whenever you’re going through a situation not everybody has to have an input on what you’re going through. So be very careful and mindful of who you are sharing your feelings and emotions with. Avoid sharing your feelings with toxic and negative people who don’t have your best interests at heart. Guard your heart in all that you do so that you will not fall into the temptation of letting their feelings or their negative emotions be passed on to you and you end up reacting in the way that you were not supposed to. So don’t give negative people access to your life and allow them to sabotage your destiny anymore.

The Bible says Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it Proverbs 4:23

3. Change your response

Whenever you’re caught up in a situation that will cause you to react in a negative way please do not engage but take the highroad and engage in a more positive way even when the person is being negative.Whenever somebody wishes you evil always wish them good things and bless them because in doing so your path will be blessed and their evil feelings or emotions will not hinder you from pursuing your destiny because you did not engage in their negative energy that would have turned out ugly and chaotic but you chose to do it the right way and did not give room to the enemy to control your emotions.

See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. 1 Thessalonians 5:15

4. Pray for self- control and for God’s wisdom.

Whenever you are overwhelmed with a lot of feelings and mixed emotions and you don’t know what to do always pray to God and ask him for guidance and for self-control in that present situation so that you can be able to act the right way without hurting yourself or the ones around you. Ask God to fill your heart with love for those that hate you and ask him to fill you with His heart, with His thoughts so that you can be like Him and live and for fill your destiny.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline 2 Timothy 1:7

5. Acknowledge that your destiny is more important than your feelings.

Your destiny is more important than your feelings because feelings come and go based on the seasons and the times that you’re going through but your destiny will always live on when you embrace it the right way. You have to stop letting negative situations hinder from living the life that God has created for you to have . You have been given the abundance of life and granted heavenly access and you need to use It the right way.

The Bible says For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future Jeremiah 29:11.

God has not created you to be governed by your feelings or emotions. He created you to live in His will, in His plans and in His purpose in order to fulfill your destiny. Do it God’s way and you will succeed because you are special in his eyes,your destiny matters ,your future matters and you are God’s masterpiece.

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10.

6. Never make decisions regarding your future when your having a negative mindset.

Whenever you are controlled by bad emotions and you make decisions you will always end up making the wrong choice because you were driven by wrong motives.          Always clear your mind or renew your mind daily and feel it with positivity so that when you are going to make decisions that are very important and are geared towards your destiny you do not end up making the wrong ones that will cost you a life of happiness and abundance. Always remember this, wrong thinking , bad emotions or feelings will always sabotage your destiny and hinder you from living out your dreams.

do all thingswith love

7. Shift your attention or focus on to something that will give you true joy and happiness.

When you are faced by a situation that causes you to have negative emotions focus on things that are going to give you joy. Surround yourself with people that make you happy. Feel your mind with things that are pure, lovely and praiseworthy.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8

8. Listen to motivating and inspiring messages or devotionals that will keep your mind focused on positive things that will empower your destiny.

Whatever you feed your spirit you will manifest.. So when you feed your emotions with good positive vibes all that you do will flourish. Positive messages will empower and inspire you to  do and think better which will cause you to succeed.

Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

PRAISE HIM ANYWAY

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalms 100:4

Are you having a bad day, has your week been hectic and has the season your living in been so difficult filled with trials and tribulation? Whatever it is God wants you to praise him anyway. Many times when life hands us the unexpected , daily struggles the reality is that those things often crowd out our praise to God.

the journey outwardsPraise God through the storm , praise Him because you are not where you used to be and praise Him because you are still alive. Praise Him for the good and the bad, for the ups and downs, for everything that has been overwhelming you, praise Him and trust His word and know His going to turn it all around for your good, praise Him anyway.

When you praise God in-spite of , all the chains that have been holding you captive will be broken, every sickness and disease that’s been tormenting your life will be no more because Jesus is your provider, refuge, healer and because you have chosen to fix your eyes on Jesus ,He will make away for you where seems to be no way.

Psalm 103:2 …Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,

The secret to praising God in the midst of your trials is that it unlocks favor, blessings breakthroughs, peace. There is power in praising God. When you choose to honor God with your praise instead of complaining and murmuring or be sad and depressed, God will honor you in the presence of your enemies and anoint you with oil and surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life because you chose to praise God anyway and honored Him.

in the city

Psalm 150:1-6…Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! 

When you praise God you will take the focus off yourself and back to God because He alone deserves our praise. Many times when we are going through trials its easy to be a victim of self. This is when you make everything about yourself. The “me me mentality” which causes selfishness. But today  choose to fix your eyes on Jesus because that’s where your hope if found.

Just like the great song says ….. “My hope is built on nothing less, Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand”.

When you praise God, He pushes back the darkness, stops the storm and protects you from the devils lies. So do your dance, shout the loudest and give God the highest praise.

  • Praise him—he is your God, and you have seen with your own eyes the great and astounding things that he has done for you. (Deuteronomy 10:21)
  • Praise the LORD who has given his people peace, as he promised he would. (1 Kings 8:56)
  • The LORD is my strong defender; he is the one who has saved me. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will sing about his greatness. (Exodus 15:2)
  • I will tell of the LORD’s unfailing love; I praise him for all he has done for us. He has richly blessed the people of Israel because of his mercy and constant love. (Isaiah 63:7)

 

PRAISE HIM ANYWAY-

Greater is the God that is in you

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 
1 John 4:4

Many times when we are going through challenges we find it difficult to focus on the greatness of God’s power. When situations overwhelmed us we tend to focus more on whats going wrong instead of being grateful of what God has already done.

I know is hard when you are facing trials and tribulations to trust God and believe that it’s all going to work out. In the midst of trials, hurt, lack and stress of things not going the way you want them to or according to your plan thats when you are supposed to pray to God and trust Him because He is your present Help on times of need.

God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him. We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake, Before the rush and roar of oceans,  the tremors that shift mountains. Psalms 46:1-3                                                                              

So don’t allow the devil to whisper lies in your ears and mind and convince you that God is not on your side. Whenever your facing difficult situation they enemy will always try so hard to cause you to doubt yourself. The devil loves to play mind games on your emotions especially when you are very vulnerable and believing God for a miracle.                                Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8

That’s why you are to equip yourself with the word of God and ask God for strength and protection. So don’t believe the lies of the enemy, believe God because He Will never leave you nor for sake.

The God in you is greater than anything your facing right now. No matter what your going through God is greater than any storm, depression, delays, financial lack, every loss. You may have been believing God for something or a promise from God for years and it has not come to pass yet and you are on the verge of giving up, please don’t because God has not given up on you. His timing is the best.

If God has made you a promise, believe me, it WILL come to pass! Delay does not mean denial! A prayer not answered yet, is not a denied prayer. God promises are not denied, they are fulfilled.

Everything you have endured God has been perfecting and preparing you for the best and prosperous destiny that’s a head of you. When God is living on the inside of you, you can overcoming anything and destroy the enemy with the power of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus you have the power to destroy the devil and his mind games because you have the king of kings living on the in side of you and in Him you always have the victory.

In Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord

Don’t allow the enemy to still your power. The devil is against your dreams, your happiness, destiny and purpose he doesn’t wants to see you successful all he wants is for you is to fail so that he can rejoice in your failures and use them against you and make you believe that you are worthless.

The devil is working day and night to destroy you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8So trust in God and not your problems or failures but total trust in God and His greatness that is living inside you.Whenever your facing challenges trust in the greatness of God within and resist the enemy and he will flee and he will not come near your dwelling. 

Whenever you are feeling less than , overwhelmed , overpowered, feeling like giving up , instead of mediating on thoughts of defeat read the word of God, let it fill your soul and meditate on it because its a powerful tool against the enemy . You are great and you are going to achieve the desires of your heart and fulfill your dreams because the great God is living in you. For God Says…Behold, I give you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and upon all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. -Luke 10:19

6 Ways on How to walk in your purpose!

When God created us, He placed purpose in the inside of us. As we were created we were predestined for greatness. As you are walking in  your daily life haven’t you seen someone who is living in their purpose and you got inspired. When someone is living their purpose its a beautiful thing to see. 

Purpose is not for the select few, its for all of us, but its going to be up to us to purse it and activate it. When you realize your purpose you will exude happiness. Whenever you are walking in your purpose and you are doing what you are created to do you will experience true bliss and freedom.

If you haven’t found your purpose yet, don’t worry you will, because its your birthright , you where born for this. You are a world changer and you where created for greatness and I believe your going to find it.

Personally I remember years back asking God what my purpose in life was, I used to feel a calling in my spirit that I was called to do so much more and make an impact in peoples lives. I didn’t want to live my life doing the same thing, same agenda without making a difference. So as I asked God about it He started to reveal to me these things that I’m going to share with you that have enabled me to walk in my purpose and I hope they will help you to.

jungle & river trails

1. Listen to your gifts, skills and talents

You have to listen to your gifts and pay close attention to the things you are good at because most of the times your purpose lies in the things you are passionate about that give you total freedom and ease. Also pay close attention to what your friends, family and co-workers say you are good at. Sometimes people on the outside tend to see the potential in you that you never thought you got. So use those relationships to help you identify your gifts and purpose.

2.Change your perception

Many times we ask our selves questions about what we are called to do and we keep going in circles and never get anything done. The thing is, you are to redirect your mind and change your perception about who you are because it will change your perspective and open you up to an abundance of creative ideas. You will discover dreams in you that you didn’t know existed. That will create a passion with in you to search and do something great and meaningful. Use the scenes from your life and begin to visualize yourself as this person you’ve been trying to manifest. Whatever it is don’t limit yourself. When you do that you will discover your purpose and when you do you will feel a peace about it and that will propel you to move forward in your destiny.

3. Pray for direction

When you can’t seem to figure out what you where called to do trust and believe in the one that created you in the first place and instilled purpose in you and trusted you enough to walk in it and fulfill your destiny. Pray to God and ask Him to guide you and give you clarity in your pursuit and grant you wisdom and understanding to know exactly what you where called to do. He will answer your prayer. The bible says we have not because we ask not. So don’t live your life in the dark without getting God in the middle of it. Trust me it will be worth it.when you trust God with your purpose and destiny.

4. Live beyond your comfort zone

Stretch yourself and do something you have never done before , something that is not familiar and you will learn something new that will make a great impact on your life. Stretching yourself will help you unlock your hidden potential. So choose to do something different everyday you will discover more about yourself and you will realize there is more to you than you thought. You will discover that your thought process will change and you will have space enough to dream big.

5. Make a positive change with your gift.

Once you have discovered your purpose use your gifts to change and impact peoples lives. Once you share your purpose with others you will find it more rewarding, fulfilling and it will give you great joy. So I encourage you to use your gifts to bless others and allow it to be your mission seeing other people happy with what God has gifted you with. Don’t be afraid to take action and follow your heart to walk in the purpose and the destiny God has given you.

6. Take the limits off of you once and for all

Whatever limitations you have heard over the years that have hindered you from pursing your purpose its time to let go. Allow yourself to dream and visualize the person and the life you want to live. No more second guessing, doubting your purpose. You are worth it and deserve to live a life of meaning and purpose. The possibilities for you are endless. You can do this!

By practicing the above steps everyday they will change and transform your life. I have witnessed this in my own live that I am seeing the vision of the person I’m becoming,  I am confident and I know what God has created me to do. I am walking in my purpose  and it has given me the greatest fulfillment and I can’t wait to see what else unfolds. Seeing other people blessed , living their purpose and fulfilling their destiny gives me great joy. You can walk in your purpose to.

THE BATTLE BELONGS TO GOD

He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

Many times i have had people say life is a battle. That statement is true life is hard, its full of trials and tribulations, so many hardships and challenges. Many times we fight, we lose ,we take chances, we fall and sometimes we win to. But one this that remains constant is life’s challenges and trials, they are always present.

Many times when you are faced with those challenges its easier to cave in and try to figure things out with our strength. we have chosen to fight a war thats not ours to fight thats why the many times we have done that we have ended up more stressed out and overwhelmed because we try to do things our own way and forgot to put God in the middle of out battles.

Many times you have chosen to fight your own battles because you where so afraid to fail and you forgot that you were nothing without God. Without God you are an easy target to the works of the enemy because you are not walking in His power but our own flesh which is weak.

God wants to remind you through his word in 2 Chronicles 20:15 and He says Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15. So when trouble shows up do not be discouraged but trust in God’s power and He will see you through.

God is saying do not be afraid for whatever battle, trial, lose, pain, sickness, enemies, betrayals or who trials to come against you. No matter how big the storm is, whether all your friends and loved ones have turned against and you feel so alone, the army thats rising up against you might be huge but be encouraged because the lord says the battle is not your but it’s God’s.

When you trust God with your battles you will realize that things in your life will get much easier and you will have more peace. You won’t worry and stress because you will know that king of kings is fighting on your behalf.

Whatever storm or battle you face God is with you. With Him you will always have the victory. Trust God, He is in the middle of your situation and will not let anything harm you.

 

Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego where thrown in the fire furnace God was there with them and they never got burnt  He will do the same for you. The bible says If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king-Daniel 3:17 .

And then in Daniel 3:24-28- King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods. Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. Servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire. Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!

 

This story in the bible is to remind you that the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. So don’t be afraid or discouraged of what may come against you and Just know God is in Control of your life and His always going to fight your battles for you.

GOD KNOWS YOU

Are you going through life wondering if God knows you? Are experiencing thoughts of doubt caused by the situations you have gone through?.You might be going through pain right now, maybe you lost your home because of the storm/ Hurricane,maybe your world is falling apart, your sick, heart broken and your feeling like God has forgotten you. He says in His word Psalms 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Many times when situations overwhelm your heart its easy to think negative and outside the will of God because of the present situation. Just because your going through trials and tribulations does not mean God is not on your side. God is always there and present nomatter what you are facing. Just because you don’t see Him doesnt mean He is not present.

God loves you so much and He said He will never leave you nor forsake. God knew this world would be difficult, He knew that you would face challenges, He knew you would be betrayed by those you love, He knew you would Hurt.

That’s why He said He will never leave you, It’s because He knew when everything in your life would fall apart you would have Him to lean on. The Bible says Proverbs 18:24 He that maketh many friends [doeth it] to his own destruction; But there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. God is that friend that is closer than a brother or any friend.

So never doubt for a second and know God knew you even before you where in your mothers womb. So nothing you have gone through or done will ever change that. God’s love for you is unconditional , it never fails and never changes.

Read Psalms 139:1-18 MSG and declare it over yourself because God already knows you-

1-6 God, investigate my life;
get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
then up ahead and you’re there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can’t take it all in!

7-12 Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you’re there!
If I go underground, you’re there!
If I flew on morning’s wings

Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!

Always remember God knows you and He has a great plan for you.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

10 TIPS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF FASTING AND PRAYING

1. Fasting releases God’s favor.

When you fast God’s favor will follow you in everything you do because you have access to the heavenly anointing and that releases God’s favor and blessings upon your life. God’s favor is upon those who diligently seek Him. Psalm 5:12, ESV For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield.

2. Fasting prepares you for new seasons in your life.

The Bible Says they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up on wings like eagles they shall run and not grow weary. So no matter what season you are in when you fat and pray to God will bring you into a new season whatever frastrations you have had in this season God is changing your season and removing anything that has beeen standing in your way. In the new season God gives you clarity and gives you a new perspective over that particular season that you’re going through because when you have put God in the midst of your situation He changes your seasons into a good season.
