THE POWER OF PERSISTENCE

When you think of Hannah, think of persistence and faith. At the time of history when infertility and a woman both scorn and ridicule, Hannah faced an added headache. She became an object of cruel mocking by her husband’s other wife.

Because the Lord had closed Hannah’s womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her.  This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the Lord, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.  Her husband Elkanah would say to her, “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don’t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?”

Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up. Now Eli the priest was sitting on his chair by the doorpost of the Lord’s house. In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly.  And she made a vow, saying, “Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.”

 As she kept on praying to the Lord, Eli observed her mouth.  Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk  and said to her, “How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine.”

 “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord. 16 Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.”  Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.

Early the next morning they arose and worshiped before the Lord and then went back to their home at Ramah. Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah, and the Lordremembered her.  So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, “Because I asked the Lord for him.”1 Samuel 1:6-20

Had you been Hannah, how would you have responded?

Hannah refused to lash out at her rival, but instead took her sorrow and loss to God. She prayed honestly to the Lord begging him for her son. She refused to believe that her difficult situation had to remain permanent.

How many times have we lashed out at our rivals because of what they have said about you or your situation and things in your life because worse. Many times when you lash out at situations when you don’t have to you are really giving power to that situation to control your life. Let us be like Hannah that when your rival comes against you instead of lashing out take your sorrow, pain and situation to God in prayer and God will restore all that was lost and reward you in the presence of your rivals.

Hannah Prayed sincerely, specifically, and sacrificially. She did not back away from her request, even when rebuked by an uncomprehending priest and God rewarded heart faith with a son, Samuel. When the time came for her to keep her word and give Samuel to the service of the Lord, she did so with a thankful heart.

Pray specifically about your need, want and the situation that your facing. Be persistent and have faith in God no matter what  and He will reward you and answer your prayers and fulfill the desires of your heart all for his glory.

Prayer changed the course of Hannah’s life and impacted an entire nation. God used her son Samuel in a key role as a prophet during a lifetime of king David, and his  influence outlived him as he gave great impetus to the prophetic movement. God also blessed Hannah with many children, proving once again his delight in the faith and persistence of his people.

Stay prayerful and God will change your life forever and cause the impossible to happen in your life. The key is to always be persistent, never give-up even when faced with the impossible and have faith in God, you will be glad you did. God wants to transform you from the inside out allow Him in your life and miracles and breakthroughs will start happening to you.

Stay Inspired, motivated and empowered to never give up and trust God always.

Love Antoinette.

Don’t let your past destroy your future 

Do you know that many times we have allowed our past to determine what we can achieve or dream about. We have determined our success from where we came from. 

Just because you came from a family that was poor , may be they never went to school, they lack the resources to pursue their own dreams, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to end up that way. 

You have to shift your mentality or your way of thinking about your destiny. If your family was not educated then you go to school get a degree and change that, if they did not pursue their dreams and gave up you pursue your dreams and never quit until they come to pass. 

You can change your history by the way you think and you can change your past by the way you think. Just because you grew up in a certain way doesn’t determine how you’re going to end up, you can change that right now by changing the way you think about yourself about your destiny about your worth. 

I want you to know this that you deserve every good thing on this planet. So make up your mind today and don’t allow any memories, loss, negativity from your past sabotage your dreams and destiny.

Make sure you don’t stand in the way of your dreams by the way you think about your dreams.  If you think that big dreams are just for the select few and not for you then you will not achieve anything but if you think and decide in your mind that you’re not going to be a product of your past. Then good things are going to start happening to you . The manifestation of God’s blessings will follow you everywhere you go because you allowed your self to believe in the impossible and refused to let the past detect your future.

You are going to achieve greater things that your family even ever dreamt, you are going to go places you have never been before. You are really changing your legacy, you’re you’re representing your family that didn’t have the opportunity to do what you have done, now you know you can do it. 

You have the power within you to achieve every dream that God has placed inside of you, the only thing you’re going to do is do not judge yourself based where you come from but change your mentality and your perception and see yourself as a winner and see yourself as an overcomer and remember that God did not bring you the spa to for sake you that he has plans for you plans to give you a hope and a future.

 God did not say to give you a past but He said He will give you a hope and a future so that you could be great in all areas of your life. Now you’ve got to believe that got what it takes to be a success that and your dreams will come to pass. Don’t allow your past hinder you from your dreams anymore.

4 Ways on how to keep the devil out of your life

1. Put God first: In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success..proverbs 3:6. The enemy (devil) will always try to assert his position in your life to try to distract you from putting God first in every area of your life. So in order to keep the devil out of your life, put God first in everything that you do, He will give you the direction that you need to achieve what He has called you to do. Whenever God is on the center of everything you do in life the devil has no room to get it in. In God you are safe and protected.
2. Pray without ceasing: Time spent in God’s presence it’s better than a thousand times elsewhere. Prayer protects you from the unknown tactics of the devil. Prayer gives you clarity and discernment over situations in your life. Many times when you fall into situations and get hurt sometimes it’s been because you where not covered in prayer and so you where an easy target to the enemy. So always stay prayerful in all seasons and situations so you can be protected by God. Remember the devil is roaring around looking for whom he might devour or destroy but you can keep him out of your life through prayer. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. John 17:15
3. Plead the blood of Jesus over your life: God showed us how much He loved us by sacrificing His only son Jesus who died on the cross and shed His precious blood so that He could be our covering… (John 3:16). When you plead the blood of Jesus over your life you are cleansed from all sin. Jesus blood shields ,covers you and protects you from the devil and all evil. Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony …”

4. Read the word of God daily: For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart….Hebrews 4:12. God’s word is very powerful and it changes situations in your life for the best when you read it daily. It will transform you from the inside out. It’s a powerful weapon against the devil. God’s word provides you the tools you need to destroy the enemy. So read God’s word daily and your life will be transformed and always protected. God will pour His wisdom and knowledge to guide you on your path and in all you do.

Stay motivated and inspired , know this if God is for you no one or no devil in hell will come against you . Victory is yours in Jesus name.

God Provides!

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

Do not give up do not throw in the towel whatever God promised you He is going to provide. God is faithful to His word to you and He always fulfills His promises. He will always provide for you no matter what because He is not man that he should lie.

Have you been going through a dry spell in your life?, has your life been turned up and down, have you been disappointed over and over again?. Have you lost all hope in your dreams and your goals and you feel like nothing is ever going to happen for you?. 

Psalm 119:89 says, “Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. 

 In John 6:35, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life: he that comes to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.”

So whatever dry spell you have been under don’t give up because God will never give up on you. In Him young will never go hungry or thirst again. He is going to see you through and you are going to come out of this season stronger, better and wiser because God is turning every bad thing that ever happened to you for your good because He alone is faithful always to His promises.

So whatever you do not have, whatever your need is ask God, trust in Him, believe and He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. 

In Matthew 7:7-8, He promises, “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.”

So don’t be anxious for nothing because if God can take are of the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea how much more will He take care of you His beloved child. Be encouraged today and know that God’s got you and He will never leave you defenseless, He will always come to your rescue. It might not be in your timing but in God’s timing because He always shows up on time and at the right time. 

 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Mathew 6:25. (Let this be your mediation verse this week when ever your feeling anxious about anything).

Stay motivated, inspired and empowered to purse your dreams and never give up.

FORGIVEN 

When God created you , you where born into a world full of sin because Adam and Eve sinned. The world was full if chaos, sin you name it , they was a lot of darkness. That’s when God gave us his son born by the virgin marry so that He could redeem us from sin and darkness.

The Bible says in John 3:16,For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God sacrificed His only begotten son so that you could walk in freedom. He bled and died for you so that you didn’t have to suffer, He stood in the gap for you and bore your sins and transgressions. In Him you have eternal life.

Isaiah 53:7 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Jesus was pierced, shamed, beaten for you so you could live a life free from the bondage of sin. The painful agony He had to overcome just for, so don’t sit there and rehearse your sins and cry about them or have a pity party because of what you have done when Jesus endured all the pain so you cold live a life that’s free of all that chaos and the sin torture that’s going on in your mind and remember it doesn’t matter what you done God says you are forgiven and your sins are not remembered anymore because in God you are new creation. He says it in His word that…“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins… Isaiah 43:25.

God says He doesn’t remember your sins, so stop condemning yourself or let others condemn you. In Jesus you are free , shame doesn’t have a hold on , pain doesn’t have a hold on you, sin has no power over you.

Jesus died so you can live a guilt free life. Once you accept Him in your life and ask Him to forgive you of all your sins and cleanse you from all your sinful ways. He will cleanse you and make you brand new again because God is a forgiving God . Remember He did it all for you at Calvary.

He took your pain and suffering so that you didn’t have to suffer. He bled for you so you didn’t have to bleed, He took all shame for you so that you don’t have to live in shame, He overcame fear so that you could live a life free of fear and live a confident and bold life in Him. That’s how much Jesus loves you.

So when you feel discouraged, afraid, feeling less than , worthless because of what you have done, remember this, you are forgiven, you are free, Jesus broke the chains of bondage off of you the day He sacrificed His life for you at the cross.

So declare this over yourself…I am forgiven, not forsaken, I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus , in Him I’m free from the curse of sin and nothing will stand in the way of my destiny because Jesus says so and that settles it. I am covered in Jesus name Amen

God is already in your tomorrow

Many times in life you cry about what’s happening now, you worry about your problems or limitations, you complain about why God is not fuifilling His promises, and you feel so overwhelmed and anxious over something that God has already taken care of.

The bible says  in Philippians 4:6-7, Be 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. 

Many times in life we quit so quick,we panic in life because things have not gone our way and we end up missing the most important thing God has for us. When you make decisions being led by your fleshy emotions you will end up making the wrong decisions that we make you feel worser than you were before.

That’s why when situations in your life are very chaoitic, you feel like you have lost it all , you feel empty and alone, you feel like dying, giving up all hope, that’s the very moment when you need to call on God and trust Him like your life is depending on it.

God says no matter what you are going through let your heart be still and at peace because God says in His word  Matthew 6:26-34, Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? 

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

God is remainding you if he can feed the birds, Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; How much more will He take care of you His child, O you of little faith?

Don’t doubt God, no matter what your facing, what has happened or what is happening right now, God wants you to have faith, rest in His peace, trust in His plan and know God knows your tomorrow ,it might look dark right now but tomorrow Jesus is restoring all that the enemy has stolen from you , tomorrow you are going to smile again, tomorrow your bills will be paid, tomorrow God will defend you in the presence of your enemies and anoint you and bless you, tomorrow all the ranging storms will be no more.

God sacrificed and laid down his life for you because He loves you that much, His arms where bruised for you so you wouldn’t have to go through life alone. God wants you to hand Him all your situations so you can experience the glory of God in your life because its finished.

So i encourage you to trust God with your life and rest in His peace, say this prayer…Dear Lord come into my life , i give you my life, my body, my soul, transform my life ,heal me from the inside out and give me new life and remove any doubt from my heart that i will trust you and depend on you alone, even when things don’t go as planned. I trust You Lord and i place my tomorrows in Your hands ,I ask you to lead me always in Jesus name i pray Amen.

A grateful heart is better than murmuring, complaining & worry

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 

free-bg

Give thanks to the lord everyday, no matter what trials or obstacles you might encounter, God is king over anything you face, nothing is too difficult for Him to fix or provide. If your feeling anxious, worried right now shake it off and start thanking God for the season your are in, instead of complaining about it and worrying about it.

bigstock-free-happy-elated-woman-with-a-48006797Once you start thanking God ,He is going to turn your life around and bless you, you will have a new perspective that is kingdom, you will start to walk by faith and not by sight because you are trusting God to guide your path, trust me when i say this with God you will always win no matter what is thrown at you.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Philippians 2:14-16

Man comforting to a woman isolatedThe bible clearly states and tells us to do all things without murmuring or complaining because first of all its a sin against God . It shows that we are not grateful for what the Lord has done in our lives and another thing it hinders God’s blessings in our lives.

So many times the difficulties and struggles of life many overwhelm you and you feel like the world is against you , you feel like God has forsaken you, you feel like giving up, and a lot of fear and anxiety starts building up within you.

Close up of young couple fightingYou find yourself asking these questions why God is blessing other people other than you, you ask when its going to be your turn and then the flesh kicks in and you start complaining about all that is wrong in your life instead of being grateful for what God has done in your life.

I want to remind you that seasons come and go but Gods word is truth, He is not man that He should lie, when He says something you better believe He will bring it to pass. God’s timing is the best not your timing. He is always faithful to His word. Many times you have given up on God and His promises but He has never given up on you.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

God’s love for you is unconditional , He is not driven by emotions, situations or problems. His GOD, His above all things and still His love remains the same from everlasting to everlasting.

1-7So do not worry about situations and how things are going to work out in your life, it might be a financial problem, sickness or disease, marriage problems, parenting problems, an a addiction, a need, or loss of a loved one..extra, Just know this in the midst of this storm this to shall pass, God has not brought you this far to forsake you now. His all knowing and He feels your pain and His going to see you through this and turn you ashes into beauty.He loves you that much. Trust Him.

God says in his word, Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:8

1-8He says in every situation be grateful and give thanks. Whether your feeling it or not give thanks, in season and out of season give thanks, whether happy or sad give thanks, whether laughing or crying give thanks, with money or without give thanks and watch God’s blessings and favor pour on you like a gashing river flow in Jesus name.

So i encourage you today to give thanks no matter what your facing and remember this Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalms 30:5

Your Destiny is calling 

Whenever you find yourself asking these questions… Lord what have you called me to do, what’s my purpose, I really want to do your will and I don’t know what to do and where to start?

Just know destiny is calling. It’s in the asking, it’s in the desiring of something greater and seeking that you will find your predestined purpose that will lead you to your God given destiny.

Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

In the beginning of time when God created you He put purpose and vision in you . So that when you grew up you would be able to walk in that vision and fulfill your destiny.

But many times the enemy has tried His best to try to destroy you, steal from you and robe you of your destiny. You know the devil is afraid of who God created you to be and He knows your destiny is great.

That’s why the devil is working so hard to distract you, kill your dreams overwhelm you with doubts, fill you with so much fear that you end up being afraid of your destiny.

The devil has used people to speak over your future by saying things like you will never make it, your not good enough, you will never achieve anything because your family has never achieved anything and the closed you in a box of their negative mindset and you have ended up wearing that mask of lies from the devil and it has affected you from dreaming again, hoping again ,believing again.

Are you in a dead state of mind and the future does not look possible and the false labels they put on you have killed your vision, your will power to dream again and walk into your God given destiny.

The devil is a liar, John 10:10 The devil comes only to steal and kill and destroy; God came so that you may have life, and have it to the full.

So if that’s you and the devil has robed you of your joy, your will , your power and your worth. God is saying it’s not over, Iam the God who created you and you are beautifully and wonderfully made by me.

You are who God says you are not what man says. Your destiny is blessed you are going to achieve everything your heart desires and what your dreaming about because greater is He that is in you than he that’s in the world.

With God on your side your dreams are possible, you will achieve your goals , you have a bright future a head of you , you will achieve the impossible says the lord. Everything you have gone through was meant to get you to this place stronger, mature, bold and confident to achieve and fulfill your destiny.

So wipe away the tears and be encouraged in this Psalm 30:5 weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 

Every sacrifice, every pain and hurt, every mockery and humiliation you have faced in this journey of life , you are not alone God has been walking it with you and His still with you. None of it is in vain. It’s worth it because God is turning your mess into a message, His giving you victory  and releasing His blessing in every area of your life.

You where born for such a time as this to fulfill your destiny.
