Your failure is not a setback it’s an opportunity to bounce back

Proverbs 24:16 The righteous may fall seven times but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble.

I have discovered failure is not bad, it’s the opportunity for you to grow and better yourself. Failure helps you to recognize the areas in your life that you need to evolve. Do not be afraid to fail because failure perfects you into the person you are destined to be. The more you fail you will acquire the tools that you need to succeed. The most successful people in the world have failed over and over and over again until they got it. There were many Biblical leaders who failed, but did they dwell on them? No they learned from their mistakes and kept on moving forward. Determination and failure leads to success. You fail and you get up and you try again.

Many times you have been so afraid to fail because you are scared of what your friends and family are going to say. You have allowed shame to fill you up and have ended up thinking that you are not good enough ,you fill like a loser which is not true. True failure is not even trying to get back up, but just quitting. God is always near and if you fall He’ll pick you up and dust you off. If God closes a door don’t worry because He has an even better one open for you. Spend time with Him in prayer and allow Him to guide your path.

Fear of failure has been the greatest stumbling block against your destiny and you achieving your dreams because you have been so afraid to fail that you have not been able to learn from your failures and be the best . I want you to always remember this, failure comes to help you be better than you were before. So let go of shame, disappointments, setbacks, let go of the negative voices around you and keep pressing forward and try again.

“A failure is not a loss. It’s a gain. You learn. You change. You grow.”-Michael Barata:

So embrace failure, entertain it, don’t run from it because failure is going to sharpen you and it’s gonna pull out the best out of you. You cannot succeed in life if you’ve not experienced certain failures in your life. In order to achieve a certain goal you going to have to get used to the thing called failure because failure will help you be the best version of yourself.

Don’t be afraid of it. You cannot be good at something without failing at it first. Even the great of the greats will tell you that they failed before they become millionaires or successful. They failed so many times and learned from there failures and that was the best thing that ever happened to them and caused them to be successful.

So I encourage you today don’t be afraid of failure, when you fail get back up again and try again don’t lose heart just remind yourself and know that even the great people we look up to failed before they became successful and achieved their dreams.

Your failure doesn’t mean you won’t achieve your dreams. The most people that have failed in life have been the most successful. So don’t let your your setback destroy you but bounce back from that setback and that means when you fail get back up again and keep pushing forward keep dreaming,keep pursuing those dreams until you see them come to pass.

Do not give up no matter how many times you fail, get back up again and try again because this thing called life you’re going to have to fail and fail so many times until you get it. The Bible says:

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

The other day I was watching a video on YouTube that the actor Will Smith posted. He was talking about something so profound and powerful about failure and he said…….

Failure is a massive part of being able to be successful. You have to get comfortable with failure because that’s where the lessons are. And practice is controlled failure. So fail early, fail often ,fail forward- Will Smith

Just listening to him speak just took off that burden we always feel when we fail at something. Many times we get so hard on ourselves when we fail. We get so frustrated of the failure instead of learning from it. The more I have matured and gained wisdom I have realized it’s ok to fail. The secret to success is not letting your failure determine your future but it’s Embracing the lessons failure brings and learn from them and try again and win. When you fail always trust God will your life and know he got your back and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Have faith in God and get back on your feet.

Always remember this “Your failure is not a setback it’s an opportunity to bounce back”.

Stay connected to the power source

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:14-19)

This is a year of connection to your father God. God is longing to have a relationship with you in every area of your life. Your intimacy with God is going to transform your life from the inside out and you will receive the manifestation of God’s blessings they more you abide in him and He will abide in you. Always remember when you are connected to the power source (God) you can do anything. Nothing is impossible for you to achieve when God is on your side. You need Him in your life to win and be victorious in all that you do.

Just like a computer needs to be connected to the power source in order for it to operate. That is very similar with our relationship with God, we need to be daily in communion with him, it’s a relationship you have to cultivate and invest in order for you to have access to God‘s power. God is the power source that you need to be connected to in order to operate in the gifting‘s that he has placed on in the inside of you. The more you abide in God the more His power will abide in you. He is the connection that you need to be successful, achieve your dreams and receive everything God has predestined you to have.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.-John 15:4

God is the power source. When you are connected to Him you will unlock everything in your life that has been closed, stuck for such a long time. What seemed to be impossible will become possible because you have connected to the greatest power source the releases miracles in your life. And that will only happen when your daily connecting to the spirit of God and listening to what the spirit of God is saying. Seek God this year like never before and God will reveal himself to you and change your life.

“But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul. “When you are in distress and all these things have come upon you, in the latter days you will return to the LORD your God and listen to His voice. “For the LORD your God is a compassionate God; He will not fail you nor destroy you nor forget the covenant with your fathers which He swore to them- Deuteronomy 4:29-31.

Every dream,every goal and every desire to succeed God placed it in you. And it’s going to take God‘s power to release every dream that He has placed inside of you into existence. Trust God with your dreams and with your future. Because God says in His word if you seek His kingdom first then everything that you need and desire you shall have.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take- Proverbs 3:5-6

God‘s desire is to bless you when you diligently seek him. In order to acquire God’s power you are going to have to stay prayerful, worship, abide in His presence and read the Bible daily. Having a relationship with God should become your lifestyle. God will never force Himself on you. You are going to have to make that choice because He already chose you and His been waiting to have a relationship with you. He wants you to stay connected to Him and He will always protect you. When you stay connected to God , no devil, no enemy , no danger or anything that would try to harm will prevail because God’s power destroys all evil that may try to hurt you. He loves you that much. He says in word:

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 Isaiah 54:17.

Fear the dream killer

Fear is the enemy of your dreams. It’s that silent voice that pushes you to loose your passion for life, for your destiny and makes you loose belief of who you are. It’s a powerful weapon that Satan uses against your dreams, goals and destiny. The enemy will stop at nothing until he destroys you, your dreams and anything that that God has called you to do. The bible says:

Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour 1 peter 5:8.

Always remember God overcame fear on your behalf, so you don’t have to leave in fear anymore. I know so much has happened in your life that has caused you to be anxious, worried and fearful but Jesus destroyed that curse when He sacrificed His life for you at Calvary. Fear cannot hold you captive anymore because you are protected by the blood of Jesus.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

It’s very key that you wage war against the spirit of fear and destroy it from its root in Jesus name so that it doesn’t sabotage your life and destiny. You have to stay constantly in Spiritual warfare against the spirit of fear because the enemy is working day and night coming up with strategic tricks/ways to try to destroy you.

For though we live in the world, we donot wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

You need to be more strategic in your prayer life. God has given you the power to destroy the enemy. Pray without ceasing because every weapon you need to destroy the enemy God has already given it to you.

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” Luke 10:19

When the enemy fills your mind with fear resist him with the word of God. Fear comes to stop you from advancing in God. But you can be free from its stronghold in your mind. You can take authority over fear when it tries to rise up against your soul.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17

So every time the feelings of fear and anxiety try to come against you, your dreams and destiny declare the following scriptures upon your life and feed your mind with the word of God daily. Thats how you overcome fear!!!

Psalm 23:4

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

2 Timothy 1:7 

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Joshua 1:3-9

I promise you what I promised Moses: “Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you … No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Be strong and very courageous .

Psalm 27:1

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 56:3-4

When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

Isaiah 41:10

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:13

For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 54:4

Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, And you will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.

Matthew 10:26

Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

Declare this prayer:

Father, in the name of Jesus I come to You and ask you to forgive me for giving in to feelings of fear. I rebuke the spirit of fear that is working to steal my dreams, destiny, entrap me, steal my faith, rob my peace, joy and feel me with anxiety, in Christ’s name. I choose faith, trust, and love. I fear and trust the Lord only, in the name of the Christ. Amen.

Peace beyond your understanding in 2018

This world as we know it with so much going on it’s easy to be distracted, it’s easy to feel like things are not going as planned or many things are happening around you that rattle your heart and take away your peace.

It’s very important to have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding and this comes by having a daily relationship with God. The world’s peace comes from material things or when things are going well then they have peace but when things take the wrong turn their peace quickly dissipates. In the Bible Jesus makes a distinct statement about peace… He says “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives” (John 14:27). God is here to give you peace in 2018 that no man or material things will give you. Whatever had tried to steal your peace will be no more in Jesus name.

If you like me I believe that you have encountered moments in your life where you were experiencing so much joy, when things were going according to plan and you’re excited but then then you get caught up in a situation where by your environment was not excited for you or you were surrounded by people you never knew were against you until you started to experiencing joy peace and love.

As those good things started to manifest in your life the people around tried to come against your life because you were experiencing so much Joy and there were jealous and couldn’t not stand your joy and they did anything they could to try to steal your joy and peace away .

If this is you then this message is yours. Never give anyone power to control how you feel, your emotions or in this case never give anybody power to control your joy and your peace that they did not give you in the first place. But always trust God for your peace and joy.The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6-Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Whenever things happen in your life that are beyond your control and takeaway your peace before you start sharing your problems with everyone please walk in wisdom and know not everyone is for you and take your concern and problems to God in prayer and He will give you perfect peace that goes beyond all your understanding. The Bible says in Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

If you have been anxious, worried and have no peace today God wants to give peace beyond understanding. God wants to guard your heart and protect you from anything toxic that would try to take your peace away.

I know many times life can be overwhelming and full of the unexpected but take courage no matter what your going through and Know you are not alone in this . God is with you, He said, He will never leave you nor forsake you. So be still and know that His God. Rest in the Power of His presence and He will give you perfect peace.

In 2018 no weapon formed against you shall prosper because God is going to protect you from your enemies and bless you beyond your wildest dreams. Peace be still over everything that has tried to destroy you. You are alive today because God has brought you this far to bless you and not to forsake you. You are more than a conqueror and the peace of God is upon you. This year is yours to experience the greatness and goodness of God’s blessings over your life.

Happy New year!!!🎆🎊

God is Able

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; – 2 Corinthians 9:8

Are you feeling frustrated today? Are you feeling like giving up? Are you feeling hopeless? Are you feeling lonely? And You don’t know what to do, you have questions in your mind, wondering when it’s going to be your turn, wondering when is the promise that God gave you going to come to pass.

“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised.” Genesis 28:15

There have been times in my life where God gave me a promise. God told me He would answer my prayer, but He didn’t answer or fulfill His promises to me overnight It took some time, but God fulfilled His promise. To Him years are like days. God answered at the right time.

God saw things that I did not see and He allowed me to learn things that I would not have learned if I didn’t wait. I believe God gave Sarah a promise, but guess what? It took a while before He carried out that promise. I believe the greatest blessings in life are the ones that you have been praying over for years. Usually the longer the wait the greater something becomes.

I’m here encourage you and let you know that God’s delays are not His denials And that everything that He has promised you His going to bring to pass because He is not man that He should lie, every word that comes out of His mouth is the truth and it’s yes and Amen.

It’s tough right now I know you want to see a breakthrough and you want to see it now but hold on tight to God‘s promise, and trust in His word. Because God says in his word that when you have little faith as small as a mustard seed then you will move mountains.

Any mountain that is before you is nothing compared to the great things that God is about to do in your life. God is going to take you places you have never been before, His going to open doors for you that you have never walked in before and give you promotions and jobs you are not even qualified for because you have chosen to wait upon him and you didn’t give up.

God is able to perform miracles., God is able to bless you exceedingly abundantly above all you could ever ask or think. God is able to mend the broken pieces of your life and turn them all around for your good. God is able to heal your body, restore your heart, heal you from your past and transform you from the inside out.

This day God wants to turn your ashes into beauty because you deserve every good thing, you are worthy of every good thing. So many times the enemy has lied to you and your destiny and and convinced and tormented your mind, But enough is enough.

Today is a day of restoration, it’s a season of new beginnings, it’s a season of the manifestation of God‘s promises upon your life because you were created for such a time as this to be blessed to be a blessing. The season of crying and weeping and worrying is over says the Lord. God is able to do the impossible in your life. Trust and always believe in God because the best is yet to come.

The Bible says….However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him–1 Corinthians 2:9

Tips on how to not let your emotions control your destiny

The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”

What are emotions?                                                                                                                                                   Emotions, often called feelings, include experiences such as love, hate, anger, trust, joy, panic, fear and grief and they are states of feeling that result in physical and psychological changes that influence our behavior- According to Wikipedia.

So whatever emotions or feelings you are letting out will greatly affect the outcome of your destiny. When you have positive emotions you are you will attract positive things in your life, if you have negative emotions you will attract negative things in your life. So it’s very important not to let negative emotions control our destiny because our emotions can either have a great effect on our destiny or a bad effect depending on how you use them.

Here are a some tips that will help you control and manage your emotions so you can live and walk into your God given destiny with success.

daily music co.-2

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.

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.

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.
