Don’t doubt yourself but always Believe!

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you- Mathew 17:20

When you are believing in something that you haven’t received yet but you know in your spirit that it will manifest that’s the same as faith.

Many times when things have happened in our lives and challenged our beliefs, have challenged our faith and they’ve caused us to second-guess who we are in Christ many times that has caused us to doubt ourselves and by doing that it has affected our spiritual foundation that we find ourselves doubting ourselves more and more every day and not believing in what we were created to do and who we are.

In this walk of life, I have realized that sometimes it’s easier to believe when things in our lives are going so perfect, when we have everything that we want and desired.

But What happens to your belief when everything in your life is not going as you planned, when it’s all falling apart, when you have not achieved your dreams.

What really happens when you’re life has been turned upside down, do you lose your faith in God?, do you lose your belief in yourself?, do you lose who you are? because things did not go your way.

I know it’s not easy to stay focused when everything that is so dear to you has been taken away. You have been stretched out of your comfort zone and your feeling so unsure of your destiny and future. I want to encourage you and motivate you today – Know this no matter what you’re facing today, no matter what has happened to you, no matter what news you have received today do not doubt yourself but always believe.

Life as we know it is full of unexpected challenges that come at us every single day, but no matter what it is do not stop believing in you, do not give up hope, do not give up the faith, but keep fighting and pressing forward and know that you are more than a conqueror.

Your situations and your circumstances do not define your destiny. It’s just a season that you’re going through and it’s only going to make you stronger not weak.

So even when you’re not feeling it believe, even when you feel like and say oh my goodness I cannot take this no more believe.

Don’t allow doubt to fill the chambers of your spirit, heart and soul. Because once you allow doubt in your spirit it will consume you, it would destroy you, it will sabotage your destiny, it will kill your passion, you will have no desire to dream and believe in you again.

Doubt is a dangerous thing, when you let it take a part of your life and destiny it will destroy you because when DOUBT comes trust me it brings along it’s sister FEAR and when fear creeps into your destiny it will kill your dreams and hinder you from reaching your fullest potential.

So my message to you today is Believe do not doubt. In other words have faith that everything is going to work out for your good. So no more not fear just faith. Do not doubt yourself but believe that the one that created you has good plans for you and God is going to see you through it all.

So do not allow the enemy to cause you to doubt yourself because of what you’re facing in this very moment but allow God’s grace and power to do miracles on your behalf .

No matter what it is when you believe in God just like the Scripture says if you have faith as little as a mustard seed you can speak to any mountain in your life and it will be moved. When you believe and have faith in yourself but most of all in God anything and I mean anything is possible, nothing is too difficult for you to do when you believe in God and who he has created you to be.

Tips on how to stay calm and peaceful

Lately I have encountered a lot of things, disappointments and situations that have been trying to take my peace away. And some days where better than others . Then I got on my knees and prayed and said Lord I don’t want to feel this way.

I was feeling anxious and overwhelmed by what was happening then the Spirit of the lord reminded me not to be anxious for anything and that encouraged me. And I was reminded of the scripture in the Bible that says in Philippians 4:6-7Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God was reminding me to be grateful and Not to be anxious and He would give me peace that surpasses all my understanding.

If you needing peace today in the midst of chaos and you’ve been feeling anxious and overwhelmed God is saying trust Him and He will give you peace beyond all understanding.

Sometimes it’s hard to understand why things happen in our lives the way they do but always remember God is in control of anything that you are facing and whatever is trying to still your joy. Just remember whatever your going through is the foundation of great and mighty things coming your way.

~Here are some of the tips that I have been practicing that have helped me stay calm and peaceful and I know they will help you to~

Pray when anxiety strikes

When you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and have no peace pray and surrender you feelings and emotions to God and He will fill you up with the Spirit of peace and calm every storm in your life.

Read and meditate on God’s word

Instead of wallowing in fear and anxiety feed your spirit with God’s word of truth. Meditate on God’s word and in it you will get encouraged, empowered , hopeful and inspired to face whatever has be trying to steal your peace and with God on your side no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

Be patient

Patience is a virtue. When situations hit you have to remind yourself that this to shall pass. Seasons don’t last forever. Whatever your facing now is only going to make you stronger. You are living and walking in the preparation for your destiny. God has great plans for you so hold on to that. We live in a “me” and “now” generation, so the sooner you can learn to remain patient, the easier it will be to stay calm. Sometimes you just have to WAIT on the Lord.

Inner peace

It’s very important to train yourself to be peaceful on the inside and not try to acquire peace from the outside by trying to solve your anxieties with outward solutions. That would won’t last. You will still live in captivity of your emotions. Don’t get confused but remaining calm and peaceful is based on the inside, not by outward circumstances. Regardless of the the drama or crisis situation going on outside, you have control of the emotions going on inside. Just keep telling yourself that you are still in control of everything that is going on inside and that God has not brought this far to forsake you now.

Be Kind To Yourself

Love and be kind to yourself. Speak positively over yourself and encourage yourself. Many times I have said that it is important to like and love the person that is looking back at you in the mirror. Stop putting yourself down with negative self-talk. Respect yourself, your uniqueness , your talents, appearance, strengths and weaknesses. Being kind to yourself allows positive feelings to flow through your mind and that will produce peace in your life.

Forgive yourself and others.

Be quick to forgive yourself and others. When you forgive, it isn’t a sign of weakness and you aren’t condoning the action. Forgiveness allows you to put the situation behind you and turn off the constantly spinning wheels in your head. When you are wronged by another person or you wrong someone, you can’t ever take the words or actions back. Forgiveness is the only way of letting it all go. You will find out that Forgiveness brings about a peaceful calm within your soul. That is priceless.

Be thankful

Always be thankful. I know when you look in the mirror or around you, you will discover they are a lot of things to be thankful for. When you sense feelings of anxiety think of something thing good that has happened to you and be thankful. Thank God that you are a live, well and still breathing. You are going to hit rough patches many times in your journey through life but count it all joy and know that the battle is not yours but the lords. And remember in all things give thanks and know that God is always on your side and that will keep you peaceful and calm.

I pray these tips will help you like they have helped me. If you have any tips that have helped you stay peaceful that you would love to share please leave me a comment below.

Stay motivated and inspired

When problems come the best thing to do is trust God with your problems because there is nothing too difficult for God. He said in His word with him all things are possible. He is here to fix any problems your facing today.

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. Whatever was not working out works out in the old season God is giving you a breakthrough in the new season.

3. Fasting and praying releases God’s anointing.

As you enter your season of fasting and praying God will release the power of his anointing that would break and destroy everything that has had you bound and break every demonic stronghold off your life that’s the power that is in God’s anointing. It breaks chains and it destroys yorks. God’s anointing will set you free and it will gives you freedom in God and liberates you.

4. Fasting and praying will take you in time.

Whenever you fast and pray it will fast forward seasons of your life. In fasting and praying God takes you in time and speeds up everything that has been stuck and that has not been moving forward for such a long time. Whatever has delayed, whatever has been stuck ,God is giving you your miracle and victory now. God is making things happen for you now. Because heaven has been open to release supernatural blessings and favor upon your life and you’re going to transend situations that have been looking impossible and God is making everything possible for you because you have chosen to seek His face firs,t you have chosen to take time out of your busy schedule to seek Him and because you have sought God first He will give you the kingdom.

5. Fasting & praying destroys the demonic powers of darkness.

When you fast and pray God shields you and protects you from the demonic powers of darkness that try to destroy your destiny.  You are covered in God’s presence, you are protected. Demons will not come near you because you are dwelling in the Holy of Hollies. God’s power is present and it  destroys everything that’s from the enemy and the flesh because the presence of God is in action and His working on your behalf.

6. Through fasting and praying you will know who God is.

When you fast and pray you will go into a deeper level, a deeper intimacy and discover the greatness of God, you would know the character of God ,you will know who God is and the plans that He has for you. When you seek Him ,He will reveal Himself to you because He say’s when you seek me you shall find me. So through fasting and praying you will find God and the things you’ve been searching for, you’ll find them in God. His revelation is going to mature your relationship with God and take you to a level that you have never known before because you have discovered the greatness and the power that is in seeking the most high God. There is power in the name of Jesus.

7.  Fasting and praying gives you a greater awareness of God’s presence.

You will feel God’s presence look at Psalms 68:17. God will always be with you no matter what you face. You will feel His tangible presence and it will transform you from the inside out. You will go through an experience that you have never experienced before. Everything that you do in God’s presence Will manifest His glory. In His presence God will redirect your behavior. You will start acting like God, you’ll start to do things of the spirit and do you will you not be controlled by the flesh or act like it. There is so much power in Fasting I’m praying that releases the presence of God, that when you’re fasting and praying your mind your body and soul is yielded to the Holy Spirit. In his presence there is fullness of joy and everything in anything is possible.

8. Through fasting and praying God releases His blessings.

In his presence God will release  the power of miracles and breakthroughs. Because when you take the time to seek God’s face He will bless you in all areas of your life so I don’t know what season you’re facing or what you’re going through but whenever season it is get ready to be blessed by God. The Bible says that God will bless you in to me the presence of your enemies Psalms 23. Whenever you fasing and praying the Lord is on your side and He hears your cries, He hears desires of your heart, He hears everything that you have made known to him through prayer and He releases the power of his blessings upon your life. Your life will never remain the same He is going to turn your story into the most victorious testimony because you have chosen to tap into the greatest  secret of the kingdom and that is abiding in His presence.

9. Fasting and praying will help you hear the voice of God.

Through fasting and praying God’s voice will be so clear to you that you will have no room to second-guess yourself or to second-guess what God is saying to you. Because you are intuned with his spirit and God is able to deposit His kingdom in you and use you for his glory. “The bible says in John 10:27-29 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand”. When you know God’s voice He will always protect you and guide you and protect you from the devil and nobody  will snatch you out of God’s hand because His watching out for you and looking out for you because He loves you that much.

10. Through fasting and praying  you will discern God in every situation.

God is omi-present, so when you seek him you will feel Him and decern God in all that you. He will give you direction, He will give you peace in the midst of choas , He will show how to handle sitations in your life and give you clarity and wisdom in all you do because He is with you and a present help for you in times of need. Philippians 1:9-10 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ.

LOST IN GOD

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalms 32:7

When things in your life are chaotic, when trouble comes your way where does your mind or heart wonder to? God is calling you to the shelter of His sweet presence. He wants you to get lost in His presence and in it He will find you and restore all with His love.

What has overwhelmed your heart? What is troubling you? Is it sickness and disease, is it pain, heartbreak, failure. Whatever it is God wants you to hide it all in Him . Get lost in Him and let the power of His grace overshadow you and protect you from all Harm.

The Bible says “I love you GOD — you make me strong. GOD is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight. My God—the high crag where I run for dear life, hiding behind the boulders, safe in the granite hideout.” “I sing to GOD, the Praise-Lofty, and find myself safe and saved.”Psalm 18:1-3 (declare this over yourself)

No matter what your facing right now, God is your strength in the midst of your weakness. If your feeling lost and confused God says it’s okay, get Lost in God’s presence because He feels what you feel. Hide in Him, He says He is your castle , your home , your rescuing knight, so fall into the arms of Jesus and get lost in Him and let Him hide and protect you from all the chaos and pain of this world.

God loves you that much. He says if you abide in Me, I will abide in you.

God’s presence is so powerful, when you are in it you will always be safe and protected. So Get lost in God and let Him take care of you.
