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-

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.

GOD KNOWS YOU

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Don’t settle for less 

 Don’t Settle for less when God has so much more in store for you. Many times we have not felt worthy of God’s blessing, we have felt less than because of what we’ve done in the past or where we come from and we have chosen to settle for less than because we thought we were not good enough.

Just because you made a mistake doesn’t disqualify you from receiving God’s best. God is full of so much grace and love for you that’s why He died on the cross so that you didn’t have to carry the burden of your past and your failures anymore. You are cleansed by the power of His blood so that you could be more like Him. You are forgiven, redeemed and deserving of God’s blessings.

bored-coupleMany times you have let things attach themselves to your life and they have become comfortable for you. Some of those habits you have come to enjoy and some of those relationships you thought you found security in but weren’t really profitable. Often we we settle for less because we haven’t met the best, when you get the best it gives you the power to let go of the rest.

Right now you may feel at a crossroad, you’re feeling like you had enough tragedy, you’ve had enough pain, you’ve had enough misery, and you want to see light at the end of the tunnel. But you feel hopeless because of everything that’s happened to you and you’ve settled for less instead of waiting for God’s best that He has in store for you but don’t you worry because God is doing something good in you that no man has seen. There is greatness in you.

UNHAPPY-COUPLE-938x535God has kept you alive through the years of great infirmity, tragedy, trials and tribulations because He had something greater for you than anything you have experienced in your life. May  be you want to be like Esther and all the great people in the Bible that received God’s best. May be you want what your friends have and your tired and overwhelmed of looking at your friends and people around you having all the best things and you don’t and you’re asking God when is my turn?. And all these thoughts of comparison have caused you to panic and you’ve ended up settling for less than because you are uncertain of the future. But just like Esther in the Bible I want to encourage you today and let you know that you have been called for such a time as this- (Esther 4:14).

Maybe you have been betrayed, perhaps all those you trusted have turned on you and broken your heart. Still God has sustained you. You didn’t make it because you were strong. You didn’t make it because you were smart. You didn’t make it because you were wise. You made it because God’s amazing grace kept you. He has more for you today than what you went through yesterday, so don’t give up, don’t give in, hold on your blessing is on the way.

God will never deny you because of your past, He will never scrutinize you because of your every action, He will take you as you are and give you rest, peace and love. He will provide for you and satisfy the yearning of your soul. So do not settle for less than no matter what comes your way because the best is yet to come says the lord.

 Psalms chapter 18:1-6                                                                                                                    Dear lord, I love you, God—you make me strong. God you are bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight My God—the high crag where I run for dear life hiding behind the boulders safe in the granite hideout. I sing to God, the Praise-Lofty, and find myself safe and saved. The hangman’s noose was tight at my throat; devil waters rushed over me. Hell’s ropes cinched me tight; death traps barred every exit. A hostile world! I call to God, I cry to God to help me. From his palace he hears my call; my cry brings me right into his presence—a private audience!                                                                                                                         Amen.

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.

This is a new day and a season greater and the best things are a head of you. The past is gone your best future is right in front of you in Jesus name.

Stay motivated and inspired to dream big and never give up.

Fight for your dreams 

~ Never ever give up, no matter what

When talking about fighting for your dreams and believing in yourself and never giving up even when you fail over and over and over again all you Gotta do is you have to get back up again and fight for your dreams, your destiny and everything that you believe in because it will come to pass with great perseverance, consistency and focus.

 Now let’s look at the life of Abraham Lincoln for example it teaches us a lot about fighting for your dreams . Abraham Lincoln fought for his dreams that even when he failed he never gave up until he achieved his dreams.

In 1831, Abraham Lincoln failed in business.

In 1832, Abraham Lincoln was defeated for state legislator.

In 1833, Abraham Lincoln tried a new business, and failed.

In 1835, Abraham Lincoln’s fiancée died.

In 1836, Abraham Lincoln had a nervous breakdown.

In 1843, Abraham Lincoln ran for congress and was defeated.

In 1848, Lincoln ran again, and was defeated. Again.

In 1855, Lincoln ran for the Senate, and lost.

In 1856, Lincoln ran for Vice President, and lost.

In 1859, Lincoln ran again for the Senate. He was defeated.

Then, in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States. 

He never gave up no matter what he failed at or whatever odds were against him he persevered and fought till the end and won you can do it to.What matters most is not how many times you fail, but that you never stop trying just like Abraham Lincoln did. Always fight for your dreams till they become a reality. 

~Stay focused and persistent 

Even when everything seems to be against you and you can’t see your way through keep trying and fight for your dreams don’t give up or lose your focus because the enemy will always use your weaknesses against you to hinder you , distract you from fighting for your dreams.

The only reason why we fail it’s because of broken focus . Lack of focus will kill your dreams before they are even born. When you lose sight of your dreams you will never achieve them. Stay focused and patient in your season. Be consistent in your dreams and fight for what you believe and you will achieve it.

~Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams.

Sometimes we tend to complain about our age and think that maybe we are too old or too young to pursue our dreams but age is just a number but your dreams are in you and alive, they want to come out but you have let your age hinder you from pursuing them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 6 years old or your 20, 30, 40, 60 , 70 years old or older, as long as you have a dream inside of you and believe in it 100% you will achieve it. Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams. As long as you have breath in you , you can achieve your dreams.

~Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Most of the time we have talked ourselves out of pursuing our dreams because we didn’t not have the resources to back up what we believed in and that has stood in the way our destiny. Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams. When you keep fighting  for your dreams the right doors will open up for you. The more you walk into your destiny God will open doors of financial breakthroughs and opportunities will present themselves to you if you do not give up so quickly .

~Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Even when everybody doesn’t see what you see don’t let them discourage or distract you from dreaming, don’t let their words distract you from believing in your dreams and fighting for them. 

The enemy will use your haters , the naysayers to try to sabotage your destiny but the more they do that keep on believing in your dreams even harder. Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.Use their words as momentum to prove to them that you can do what God called you to do.

You can do it and you will achieve all your dreams in Jesus name. Believe in yourself and never give up no matter what.

Stay inspired and motivated and dream big

Overcoming insecurities 

Trust that God makes no mistakes: Before you were in your mothers womb God knew you. He knew who you were going to become and He called you beautiful. Everything about you is beautiful, that alone should give you the confidence. There shouldn’t be any room of insecurity about who you are and who God created you to be.
Most of the times, especially women! we tend to look at ourselves and try to find what’s wrong with our physical appearance instead of embracing our uniqueness of who God created us to be. Every time you speak or see something negative about you or you don’t appreciate and recognize who God created you to be, you are actually saying to God that He made a mistake when He created you. God makes no mistakes. You were uniquely created and crafted by God and He made you perfect in His image.

So don’t allow the enemy to create thoughts of doubt about your identity. Resist and remove the insecure thoughts out of your mind and heart that cause you to feel that you are less than and cause you to think your are not enough and make you feel you are not beautiful. You are God’s reflection and everything beautiful God is, you are. The Bible says…I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well…Psalms 139:14.
So be confident and bold and embrace who God created you to be. God wants you to be confident, bold, fearless and free. He wants you to be healthy and whole-fully able to pursue your destiny. And He desires for you to feel good about yourself and your relationship with Him.

Stop comparing yourself with others: Be the original you. God made you an original and He has Great plans just for you. When you are insecure you tend to compare yourself with others and try to keep up with them. It’s exhausting and just leads to frustration. I remember long time ago when I was younger and was discovering who I was I used to compare myself to others until I found God through seeking Him and reading the Bible I discovered I was enough and beautiful just the way I was and my security was in God. Most of all His unconditional love was always present. That was a life changing moment. I leant how to love me, believe in me and God filled me up with confidence and security in Him. He can do the same for you today. Ask Him and He will transform your life.


Discover who you are in Christ: Most of the time ladies when insecurity occurs in our lives it’s because we have not discovered who we are in Christ and we start comparing ourselves to others. What you think is different about you actually it’s what makes you beautiful and unique. Embrace your uniqueness and Know your security is in God not man and material things.

No more fear and doubt: May be some of you started doubting yourselves because of what your friends, loved ones and family members said about you. Maybe they called you ugly, fat and they said the meanest things about your physical appearance that made you doubt yourself. When people attack you physical appearance most of the time they are insecure about who they are and they want to impose their insecurities on you which causes them to act out in a certain way. Remember hurt people hurt people. So forgive them , forgive yourself, love yourself because God loves you. Today is the day for emotional healing in your life. Delete every negative and insecure files out of the memory of your mind and heart and know God calls you beautiful and He loves you just the way you are because you are like God. He created you in His perfect image.

Many times we focus on ourselves when we should be focused on God. We focus on our weakness, faults and everything we have done wrong and feed on that which creates a mentality of failure. Which makes you feel not good enough and you start thinking you can’t achieve anything which leads to more insecurities. No more! ..The Bible says…He said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me… 2 Corinthians 12:9 

God wants you to feel good about yourself. He wants you to be bold, confident, to be fearless, to walk in His power, believe Him for big things and be secure in Him always.



Trust God with your heart, insecurities, fears and anything that’s hindering you from walking into your divine destiny and let God heal you and transform your life . Because you are beautifully and wonderfully made by God, great is His works.

Many blessings, stay inspired, stay motivated to pursue your dreams and walk into your God given destiny in Jesus name.

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.
