5 Ways To Overcome Failure and achieve your dreams!

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Galatians 6:9

Here are the 5 ways that I have learned and I know will help you overcome failure and achieve your dreams!!
1. Set your mind where giving up is not an option
You will have to be determined in your mind never to give up no matter what your faced with. Have a mindset of winning no matter how many times you fail. You have to realize that failure is necessary and it plays such an important role to your dream and goal achievement. Failure helps unveil the hidden mask of what you didn’t know so that it causes you to search your heart more, pay attention to details and anything that has kept you stuck in a certain state. Look at failure as an enlightenment, an opportunity to gain more wisdom and a gateway to your promotion. Once you have that mindset then giving up will never be an option and you will soar and achieve all your dreams and live a fulfilled life far beyond your wildest dreams.
2. Ignore the naysayer and the haters
When you are pursuing your dreams, you will be faced with setbacks and you will fail in the presence of friends, co-workers and family, most of the time you will be made fun of, mocked and talked about negatively. It will hurt but don’t give up. Do not listen to the naysayers that are laughing at your downfall or mistakes and keep your mind focused on the goal without being distracted. There will always be people who will want to dim your light by using their words but I encourage you to silence the outside noise and remember no matter how many times you have failed you still have the option to do it all over again and win. You have the power within you to raise above your failure. Trust God with your failures and challenges because with God all things are possible and (His strength is made perfect in your weakness– 2 Corinthians 12:10)
3. Anything worth having never comes easy
Anything worth having will always have some kind of resistance. Your dreams will cost you something to achieve them. Nothing comes easy, you will have to pay the price to achieve your dreams. The secret is not giving up no matter what. Everybody has to suffer for their path. Through your pain you will gain strength and knowledge to make right choices. Failure will mature you. It’s in the process that you will discover that you have more strength in you to achieve your dreams. I know it will get hard sometimes, it will hurt and maybe you will shed some tears in the pursuit of your destiny but it will all be worth it-. You will come out stronger on the other side if you never give up on you and your dreams.
4. Face your fears head on
Failure is so painful, discouraging and can cause you to second guess your destiny because you are unsure and afraid that your dreams won’t come true. The fear of failure will always hinder you from your greatest blessing. Don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is part of life. Many times, when we are faced with failure it causes us think different, make changes and challenges us to be better. Embrace your failures because they are a gateway to your breakthrough. Face your fears head on and know failure happens to make you stronger, confident and better. Once you have acknowledged the wisdom you have gained from your failures a transformational shift will happen that will change your life forever and you will achieve your dreams.
5. Use Failure as a learning experience to make things better
When we fail, it should be a chance to learn from our mistakes and own up to them and then make the necessary changes to make things better. When you use the knowledge, you gained from your failures you will be able to do tremendous things and achieve extraordinary things because you have not allowed your failures to control and destroy your destiny. Always use the lessons and knowledge you have learned to improve yourself. Always remember this when you don’t give up you will always achieve your goals and dreams.

5 Reasons why we need the Holy Spirit!

Who is the Holy spirit? The Holy Spirit is the active presence of God manifest in the tangible world. He is God the Father and God the Son  who empowers, purifies, teaches, comforts, convicts and guides those who put their faith in Jesus Christ.

  1. He empowers us: God knew you going to have dreams and goals and he knew that sometimes you are are going to lack motivation and confidence to fulfill your goals thats why He gave us His Holy Spirit to empower us and move us in the right dirrection. The Bible says, “The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God” –1 Corrinthians 2:10-11. I like that about the Holy Spirit. He goes where I cannot. He comprehends things I cannot. He does things I cannot. But when it comes to the things I need to do, He equips me to do them.
  2. He is revealer of God’s truth.: The Spirit’s presence within us enables us to understand and interpret God’s Word. The Bible says…But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.(John 16:13).When the enemy tries to speak a false identity to you remember that the Spirit of God will speaks to you your true identity as child of God. God’s own Spirit speaks truth over you.
  3. He is our comforter: When you are going through test and trials the holyspirit will always comfort you in the dark times of your life. when you going through hard times remember to call on the Holy Spirit. God has made him available to to you to help you when your weak, hurt and hopeless to comfort you and give you hope for the future. But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor,Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you. John 14:26
  4. He gives us spiritual gifts: The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all. To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing. To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages. All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides. -1 Corinthians 12:7-11
  5. He intercede on your behalf in accordance with God’s will: When you pray, it’s His role to intercede on your behalf in accordance with God’s will. “We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” –Romans 8:26. I love that! Let this verse give you assurance and confidence in your prayer life. Even when you don’t understand yourself, the Holy Spirit knows your heart and is at work communicating it to God.

5 Tips on How To Stop Procrastination

What is procrastination? It’s the act or habit of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention. Sadly this is a common experience for many of us. Many times we have wanted to stop procrastinating but we can’t seem to find the motivation to complete an immediate task which has affected us in our daily life and in the pursuit of fulfilling our dreams and destiny.

For example many of us have dreams of starting a business, writing a book, starting a blog…extra… But we have been procrastinating about the ideas that we have been putting them off and finding the many reasons why our dreams, ideas, goals will not come true.

What procrastination does it causes you to be lazy about your dreams that you lose the motivation to implement your ideals because you keep on second guessing yourself and thinking about what would go wrong or if your good enough and you end up putting off or delaying to follow your dreams and do something about it. Procrastination is a danger to your dreams and destiny,

The Bible says in James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

This is so true because double mindedness will always cause you to second guess yourself you will never get anything done. You have to let go of the fear of failure because it causes you to procrastinate that you end up not fulfilling your purpose or living your fullest potential.

I have noticed this in my own life, whether it a business idea or writing a blog or writing a book, every time that I have procrastinated I never got anything done..I kept telling myself I will do it next time and the next time became the next day and the next day became the next month…you get the idea!. The struggle was real!! I was tired of it and I decided no more procrastination. So I started to motivate myself and find things that would keep me motivated ( by listening to a podcast,motivating video) to stay creative and present to fulfill the task at hand. As I kept on practicing these tips that I’m going to share with you I found them to be very helpful and they kept away procrastination. Anytime the feeling of procrastination starts to linger around I go through the steps again.

If you have been struggling with procrastination here are 5 tips that will help over come procrastination so you can live your dreams and fulfill your destiny.

  1. STAY MOTIVATED Staying motivated can be tough even under the best of circumstances. Personally, I struggled with motivation. I’ve fought through major failures, setbacks, upsets, and strings of defeat, one after another. Through it all, staying motivated was hard. But I stayed committed, even though it was hard and I wanted to throw in the towel and give up, I refused to quit and stayed the course and started seeing positive results and God also being so faithful to me. This motivated me even more. This I know with perseverance and never giving up and encouraging yourself, seeking guidance and being motivated by other speakers via audio and video podcasts and most of all with prayer you can stay motivated and achieve all your dreams and fulfill your destiny.woman
  2. FOCUS ON YOU MOST IMPORTANT TASKS. You can simplify your list by identifying the tasks that have the biggest impact on your career or dreams or life and do them first thing in the morning. Pick one of the 3 most important tasks that absolutely must be completed by the end of the day. Two should relate to an urgent project with an immediate deadline and one should be part of a long-term goal. When you stay focused you give no room to procrastination.A-black-woman
  3. GET RID OF EXCUSES Do any of these sound familiar? I don’t know if I’m good enough, maybe next time ,I have to be in a good mood, I will wait till I have more time, I don’t have enough money to start,,,,,STOP IT!!! Be honest with yourself: These are excuses. Sure, it might be nice to ”be in the mood and have enough money” but waiting for that to happen can mean you will never start your project.Sad woman holding her forehead with her hand on white background
  4. GET RID OF CATASTROPHIZING One of the biggest reasons why we procrastinate is because we catastrophize, or make a huge deal out of something. It may be related to how tough, how boring, or how painful it will be to complete the task; whatever the case, the underlying theme is that doing the task will be “unbearable.” In reality, challenges, boredom, setbacks and hard work will not kill you or even make you sick. Procrastination, on the other hand, is associated with stress. When you stressed you will get sick , physically, emotionally and mentally.You have to stop this cycle.Banish-Negative-Thoughts-660x400
  5. BELIEVE YOU CAN AND YOU WILL Always believe in yourself because no-one else will. Be your best cheerleader when it comes to your dreams. Don’t let procrastination robe you of your destiny. you can do anything you put your mind to. You got it in you. Don’t allow any negative energy in your life to clatter your mind. Know that God is on your side and you can do and achieve anything.  Portrait of a confident black businesswoman at work in her

GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR YOU!

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.-Isaiah 53:4-5

Today we remember the powerful sacrifice God made for us and redeem us from sin and from the hands of the enemy.

That is what i call unconditional love. God sacrificed His only begotten son to give you freedom, to give you Redemption, to give you hope and a future in every area of your life.

This is the day that we recognize the magnitude of the ultimate sacrifice God made for us. As we stand in awe of all that God has done for us, let our hearts have so much gratitude for what He has done for us.

It’s because of what God did that you’re able to connect with Jesus, that you’re able to live a life free from sin, no condemnation and freedom from anything that would hinder you from fulfilling your purpose.

I don’t know what your facing right now or what challenges you’re going through but this I know that God sacrificed His son Jesus just for you. No matter what it feels like, or what it looks like in your life right now, Jesus is present for you to give you hope, to heal you, to provide for your every need ,restore every relationship that has been broken in your life and grant you peace beyond all understanding.

God’s unconditional love is present today tomorrow and forever for you. So no matter what you’re facing do not lose hope because Jesus died so that you could have hope. Jesus died so that He could save you, Jesus died so that he could restore everything the enemy has stolen from you. Jesus died to give you His unconditional love that suppresses human love.

He loves you more than you know. So don’t doubt yourself, do not give up hope on your destiny or your future, just remember that God did it all for you because His great love for you. He did it all at the cross and He said! it is finished. You have been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

So today rejoice in the power of God’s death and Resurrection because He is alive and He lives in you. His sacrifice is a symbol of His unconditional love for you. His love covers a multitude of sin, shame and guilt. So always remember in God’s love you will always win and under the covering of His blood that He shed at Calvary you will always be protected from all harm , pain and danger in Jesus name.

5 Tips on How to Overcome Tough times

There are to many obstacles, trials and tribulations, disappointments that we encounter on our journey as we are pursuing our destiny and all that God has for us.

Failure and all of your setbacks doesn’t mean that it’s the end of it all, it doesn’t mean that you give up on life. I want you to know that a setback can be a setup for God to manifest His plan in your life.

Many trials and tribulations and obstacles may knock you down but they will never knock you out of God’s will. Through God’s love and His word, He will empower you to get back up and overcome any hard times or obstacles that you may face.

With God on your side you can achieve anything you can become anything because no weapon formed against you will prosper. So trust God with every trial with every disappointment because He will never forsake you or Leave you.

Jesus tells us that we will have troubles in this world, it’s a guarantee. However, He also promises that we have victory through our faith because Jesus Christ has overcome the world. If you are facing hard and uncertain times, you can be encouraged to press on knowing that you are an overcomer!

Here are 5 tips to help you overcome tough times….

Tip 1
Make prayer your number one priority.
Prayer is a powerful weapon that God has given us and we are supposed to use it when life throws tough situations and very unexpected disappointments at us. The first thing we are supposed to do is get on our knees and pray to God for his guidance, for His strength, for His courage and for the will to get back up again.

Hebrews 5:7
During the days of Jesus’ earthly life, He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence.

Even when God was facing trials and tribulations, even on the point of death Jesus didnt think of anything else but prayer. He prayed to God to help him through the hard time He was facing.

We should learn this from our father Jesus Christ that even when you are on point of death or your faced with the most difficult decisions or your faced with obstacles that are beyond your control. Always trust God and bow down on your knees and pray to God for direction and guidance and He will help you through it and give you the courage and strength to overcome.

Tip 2
Let go of the past hurt and embrace the new thing that God is doing in your life now.
Learn how to let go of the past hurt. Whatever has happened to you in the past do not let it destroy your future. Situations will have happened in your life to make you stronger so that you can be able to overcome whatever is thrown at you in the future.

God has given you victory over your past so stop looking back at it, because it will hinder you from receiving the greatest blessing that God has for you. Embrace your future and embrace your new reality because no darkness that rises up against you is ever going to win because God overcame your darkness and sin can no longer torment you again.

Tip 3
Forgive those that have hurt you.
When you’re facing hard times it’s very important for you to forgive every single person that has hurt you. You are not doing it for them you were doing it for yourself. When you forgive them you release yourself from any baggage that might have been lingering around and trying to hinder you from walking into your breakthrough.

Many times you have been bound by situations because of unforgiveness which has caused you to be bitter and caused you to act out in a certain way that was not of God. Forgiveness is the key to unlocking your blessing and to freeing yourself from any baggage of the past and it’s the key to freeing your mind from stress and depression. Because when you hold on to unforgiveness you’re holding onto pain and misery and all the heartache that comes with it. Today is a time for you to release yourself and free yourself from the bondage of forgiveness .

When you forgive everybody that has hurt you, you will notice a great change in your life things will start happening in your favor and blessings will start to flow because you have destroyed that thing that has been holding you in bondage for such a long time.

Tip 4
Spend more times in the presence of God when you are facing tough times.
It’s very important that when you’re going through tough times do not let your mind wander and let it be worried because the more you allow your mind to be everywhere and let everybody and anybody speak words that don’t agree with with what you’re going through you know it may put you in a predicament that you really want to get out of.

The key here is when you’re facing the toughest the toughest of times spend more time in the presence of God. Draw closer to God like never before and He will draw near to you. It’s in the tough times that God will speak to you the most. He will guide you he will listen to you he will direct you and above all he will show you how to overcome the tough times.

Shut out all the noise and spend time in the presence of God and listen to His voice alone because it’s His voice that is that your going to need to make it through the tough times because with God by your side you can overcome anything.
Reading God’s word will guide you, direct you, will give you the strength and endurance needed to run your race. It keeps your spiritual tank from reaching low. His presence will empower you and His Word will provide the nourishment for your soul.

Tip 5
Believe in God’s plan for your life
No matter how many tough times you have faced never stop believing on God’s plan for your life. Never give up even when the odds are against you and even when you face challenges. Always remember there is nothing that you face that alone. God is always in the fight with you and He will help you overcome. God has not brought you this far to forsake you now. His plan for you is to have a future and a hope, to be blessed and fulfill your purpose. Never stop believing in God’s plan for your life.

DON’T STAY STUCK AT A CLOSED DOOR

I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close”.Revelation 3:8

Many times, in our lives we have gotten so stuck at a closed door and struggled to move forward because of the disappointments we have faced and for every trial and tribulation we have faced. It has seemed like every time a door opened in your life it was closed for some reason.

A closed door has caused you to second guess your purpose, your dreams and has caused you to live in doubt. You have felt stuck and not moving forward because mentally you are still living in regret of a closed door instead of moving on to something new.

Holding on to the past or closed door has hindered God’s best from manifesting in your life because you have not made room for something new to happen.

When you stop having expectations from God that something good is going to happen to you, you will always live closed in, with no vision and live in regrets of what woulda, shoulda been, that kind of mindset will keep you stuck and unproductive. God wants to set you free today and His opening new doors for you.

I declare over you today as your entering this new season and month of March 2018 that God is going to deliver you from all the things that have kept you stuck at a closed door. When you are in God’s will He will lead you through those “open” doors and away from those “closed” doors.

For the Bible says, Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert- Isaiah 43:19

When a door closes you have to trust God with all your heart and believe He will see you through because He promises that He will never leave defenseless.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths- Proverbs 3:5-6

When one door closes God will always open a new door for you because He has great plans for you, plans to prosper and give you a future. Your blessing is a head of you not behind you. When a door closes keep moving forward and knocking and a door will open because when God opens a door for you no devil or no man will ever close it.

Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. Continue to knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, whoever continues to ask will receive. Whoever continues to look will find. And whoever continues to knock will have the door opened for them- Matthew 7:7-8

You will get everything God has for you!

I believe you are going to get all that God has for you. God has put dreams in your hearts and His written Destinys over your lives and He is going to bring to pass everything He has promised you. You will have to trust Him with your Destinys and dreams in order to see the manifestation of his promises.

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. ~2 Corinthians 9:8~

You need to have faith in God even when your surroundings don’t look promising or even when everything around you is in chaos and you heart is filled with doubt and unbelief. Let your faith in God’s word be greater than your fear and know that God is not man that He should lie because every word He has said to you and every promise He has made to you is truth and He will bring to pass.

Unfortunately, many times the path to the promise is filled with lots of distractions, delays, hardships, pain and opposition. This I know……nothing worth having ever comes easy and without opposition. Darkness will come, storms will come, winds will blow, waters will raise and you will be confronted by fear. All that is meant to happen, God allows the path to be difficult so that He can purify you, prepare you, strengthen you and refine you for your place of promise.

So don’t let your present situation discourage you from the your destiny and from Gods promise. He is going to bless you beyond anything you have ever dreamed of because you have paid the price and suffered for your dreams and destiny. Whatever you have suffered in private God is going to bless and reward you in public.

The enemy has fought so hard to try to steal your faith in God and keep you in bondage but enough is enough says the lord. This is the day for your redemption. God loves you so much and His desire is to bless you and supply your every need.

If you have been in a trying and difficult season and you have been feeling discouraged and hopeless worry no more because God is on your side. God knows you, He has been watching you, feeling everything you feel and guiding your path and He says 2018 is a your year of abundance and fulfilled promises. Don’t worry about what you don’t have, God is going to make sure you have it all. Remember your negative circumstances don’t exclude you from God’s blessings.

Defend your light

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.-Psalm 119:105  

You have to defend your light. Not everybody has to be around you. You have to surround yourself with people that help you become better and not the people that tear down your dreams. Always look out and watch and see who is for you and who is against you.

Not everybody is going to be for you. You have to fight for your dreams, you have to defend them on every side because what God has put inside of you has great purpose. Surround yourself with people that motivate you, inspire you and empower you to achieve your dreams. You’ve got a light and that light has got to shine so bright until you birth your dreams, visions and goals.

But in order for that to happen your environment or your surrounding has got to be light. So remove every negative energy, remove every darkness that is brought to you by people that want to dim your light. Surround yourself with greatness, surround yourself with people that believe in your dreams and vision and stay away from the people that work so hard to destroy your greatness.

Do not share your dreams and goals with everyone. People will not believe in your vision and your dream’s beginning stages, your are highly vulnerable to the opinions of others. They will go after your light especially if you are surrounded by negativity, doubt, and belittling feedback. Even some of your closest family and friends will have a hard time investing in your vision. This is ok. Most of time people have to see something to believe in it and your friends and family are no different so don’t take this personally. So when you encounter this issue ask God for wisdom and discernment to know who is for you and who is against you and defend your light (Dreams).

Be careful who you take advice from. Not everyone has your dreams best interests. Unless a person has had success in going after their dreams, be mindful of putting weight in their advice. Dreams take time, chance, risk, going into the unknown, faith, belief, conviction in the unseen and if someone hasn’t travelled those waters, they aren’t going to be able to advise you.

Find people who have gone before you, who have made something out of nothing, who have been persistent and dedicated to their vision and dreams , who have faced self-doubt and fear and looked the possibility of failure in the eye and never gave up. These people will be the strongest sources of support, perspective, advice, and opinion and can be leaned on faithfully as you light your own path.

Trust God with your path, dreams and vision and defend your light no matter what situation or circumstances are thrown at you, never give up and you will achieve all your dreams in Jesus name.

Put Fear of Lack out of Business

OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF LACK

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.- 2 Timothy 1:7.

Fear is the biggest dilemma in the world. A lot of people around the world are living in fear of lack and it’s controlling how they think and it’s destroying their lives. Fear of lack is the enemy against your destiny and your dreams. You can’t give it power anymore to control your life.

Many of us have fear of lack, never having enough and that has affected us in so many ways that we are always wanting more. We are never happy because we are not satisfied with what we have. We are so afraid that we are going to loose it all. Fear of lack causes greed because we are always consumed wanting more and we have let material things become an idol. And when material things become an idol the lack of them will always keep you in fearful state. When fear is controlling your life it will destroy everything you are about, so trust God and not material things that perish. Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”- Hebrews 13:5

There times when the place where we were getting our provision dries up for example when you loose your job, when your business fails and it throws you in lack and your filled with so much fear and you start questioning yourself where the money or where the help is going to come from financially. And you forget that God has provision for you. Don’t be stuck at the closed door because God is opening new doors for you where no man or devil will close. And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.- 2 Corinthians 9:8

It’s time to put fear out of business. When thoughts of fear of lack torment your mind and heart resist them and renew your mind with God’s promises because He says He will supply all your needs according to your riches in glory. Do not fear but trust God with your need because God will always provide for you. But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.- Jeremiah 17:7-8

So don’t worry about money, what your going to eat or wear and know this… if God can take care of the birds in the sky how much more will He take care of you His child. When you put your trust in yourselves you will never have enough but when we put your trust in God you will always have more than enough. So don’t put your trust in material things because when you loose them you will end up leaving a life of fear of lack because you did not trust in God’s provision. “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?- Mathew 6:26

I don’t know what your worried or afraid of about but whatever it is let it go and trust God with your worries. Cast all your care and burdens upon God because He cares for you. I remember a while back I was believing God for a financial break through that I needed right away and when I didn’t get it I freaked out, my heart was overwhelmed with anxiety and fear of lack. I start to think how am I going to pay for my school, how I was going to pay for my bills and everything I needed to take care of ….And then the Holy Spirit quicken me and reminded me of His word and He said do not fear, don’t you know I’m your God and your provision is in me. And He also reminded me of all things He provided for me through the years and immediately as I remembered all that my faith was strengthened and all the fear, anxiety and worry all went away and I decided that no matter what lack or disappointment I faced I would always trust God’s provision and never let the enemy fill my heart with fear of lack.

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

So I encourage you today don’t let fear win, let your faith in God’s provision be greater that your lack and your present circumstances. In God you will never lack but you will always have more than enough. Whatever you need go to God in prayer and He will supply your every need. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.- Philippians 4:6

The purpose of God will always prevail

No matter what your going through the purpose of God will prevail. God has not given you a promise that He won’t fulfill.

There is always hope when God’s promise is involved. I don’t know how long you have been waiting on God’s promise to manifest or come alive in your life but this I know God is not man that he should lie. He said His word will never return to Him void.

So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.- Isaiah 55:11

Even in the midst of trials and tribulations do not panic or be anxious but rest and trust God’s promise to you. Don’t be bitter, mad and disappointed because your promise has not yet manifested. There is a blessing and purpose in the valley. Keep walking in faith , do not faint and give up because God is always on time and His time is always the best time. Trust His promise.

The valley, the journey has been so long and painful but God is walking with you all the way. Sometimes you have wondered how you have been able to make it this far, it’s because God has been strengthening your steps at your weakest moments. Keep walking forward because God is with you all the way He will never leave your side.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23

When we look at the story in the Bible when Jesus calmed the storm when He was with His disciples. Jesus was not bothered by the storm that were raging when He was on the boat because He was at peace but His disciples were so afraid and forgot who was with them in the storm and they woke Him up and He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.-Mathew 8:26

The disciples were awaken by their fear and Jesus was a sleep in His purpose.

 Jesus calms the storm

Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”- Mathew 8:23-27

How many times in your own life have you been so afraid and overwhelmed with fear when trouble, trials showed up and when the storms were raging in your life, you forgot that God was with you even in the midst of your storm.

What God is saying to you right now is that no matter what war is raging all around peace be still. Have faith and know God is king over ever storm in your life. God is in the middle of all that your going through and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Wait upon Him and trust His promise. Through everything your going through God’s purpose will be revealed and it will be worth it. For the best is yet to come.
