THE BATTLE BELONGS TO GOD

He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

Many times i have had people say life is a battle. That statement is true life is hard, its full of trials and tribulations, so many hardships and challenges. Many times we fight, we lose ,we take chances, we fall and sometimes we win to. But one this that remains constant is life’s challenges and trials, they are always present.

Many times when you are faced with those challenges its easier to cave in and try to figure things out with our strength. we have chosen to fight a war thats not ours to fight thats why the many times we have done that we have ended up more stressed out and overwhelmed because we try to do things our own way and forgot to put God in the middle of out battles.

Many times you have chosen to fight your own battles because you where so afraid to fail and you forgot that you were nothing without God. Without God you are an easy target to the works of the enemy because you are not walking in His power but our own flesh which is weak.

God wants to remind you through his word in 2 Chronicles 20:15 and He says Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15. So when trouble shows up do not be discouraged but trust in God’s power and He will see you through.

God is saying do not be afraid for whatever battle, trial, lose, pain, sickness, enemies, betrayals or who trials to come against you. No matter how big the storm is, whether all your friends and loved ones have turned against and you feel so alone, the army thats rising up against you might be huge but be encouraged because the lord says the battle is not your but it’s God’s.

When you trust God with your battles you will realize that things in your life will get much easier and you will have more peace. You won’t worry and stress because you will know that king of kings is fighting on your behalf.

Whatever storm or battle you face God is with you. With Him you will always have the victory. Trust God, He is in the middle of your situation and will not let anything harm you.

 

Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego where thrown in the fire furnace God was there with them and they never got burnt  He will do the same for you. The bible says If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king-Daniel 3:17 .

And then in Daniel 3:24-28- King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods. Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. Servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire. Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!

 

This story in the bible is to remind you that the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. So don’t be afraid or discouraged of what may come against you and Just know God is in Control of your life and His always going to fight your battles for you.

7 ways to never ever give up on you or your dreams

1.Trust God’s plan for your life: The Bible says in proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,and he will make your paths straight. Whenever you fill like giving up trust God’s plan for your life because He will never let you down, His timing is always best, even when it gets tough and you don’t see what God is doing and maybe your thinking nothing good is going to happen for you don’t give up because God is working out something for your good. Trust Him and you will be blessed. 

2. Stay focused: Phillipians 3:15-16, So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision – you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it. I know this world has a lot of distractions but to don’t give in, stay focused on your goal, what out for the distractions that come through friends, the media, work place, haters, stress and much more, disconnect from it all and that will give the the mindset you need to stay focused on you and your goals.

3. Always have a positive mindset: Achieving your goals will take some time, it might be weeks, months or years that’s why it’s important for you to enjoy the process. Celebrate the little victories in your process..always seek out the good out of the bad and focus on that.. surround yourself with positive energy and stay away from all negativity it will cause you to give up …the Bible says in Philippians 4:8, Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

4. Pray without ceasing: Pray always and Ask God to Grant you strength in all you do. Ask God for the right direction towards your goals and dreams and He shall direct your path and He will give you clarity. In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

5. Surround yourself with the right network of people/ friends: Who you surround your self with is very important. Many times when you make wrong choices it’s because the people you surround with where making bad choices and you ended doing the same.. so surround yourself with people that will make you a better person, surround yourself with people that have a similar goal as you.  The right relationships will always connect you to the right people to help you achieve your dreams. So please stay away from the dream killers.

6. Use failure as a stepping stone: If you fail as you try to achieve your goal, instead of using that failure as an excuse to quit, use it as a stepping stone to keep pushing forward.  When you fail at something it doesn’t mean you lost, it means it’s an opportunity to try again and be better.

7. Give up on your excuses: You can’t have excuses about everything in your life and win. Excuses will always kill your focus which will cause you not to achieve your dreams. Realize that you are responsible for what happens next in your life it can be both frightening and exciting but it’s worth if your face it head on and don’t give up.

Stay motivated and inspired to never give up!

No more Excuses against your Dreams and Destiny

Do you have a dream that you been trying to pursue but you never get around it. Are Excuses standing in the way of your dreams. Many times our dreams have not been realize because we have had so many excuses of why we can’t do it because we are afraid to fail so we decided not to even try.

When you have too many excuses in life of what you shouldn’t do or achieve your dreams you are really robbing yourself of  a great destiny God has for you. When you keep on having excuses in your life you will never discover the greatest potential that lies within you. Let today be the moment you decided to give your dreams a chance. Let this be the day you put fear behind you and walk in confidence and purpose.

I have come to realize that many times when we don’t want to pursue our dreams its because we are afraid of what the outcome is going to be and we actually talk ourselves out of it or say to ourselves maybe I’m not good enough or maybe I’m not going to do a great job, that self sabotage will kill your dreams.  As long as you keep on with that mindset you will never do what you want to do you in life but live in fear of the future, isolation from your dreams and you will miss out on living the life God wants you to live and you won’t discover the gifting’s that God has placed inside of you.

You are a jewel that God has placed on this earth to succeed in every area of your life. But many times the devil has lied to you that you’re not good enough and that if you try to pursue your dreams you’re going to fail. All these negative thoughts have overwhelmed and convinced your mind to giveup and not to dream and you find yourself stuck in a cycle that you don’t understand and you want to see change in your life. Today is the day for your freedom, Today is the day you choose you, your dreams, life and purpose because God says you’re good enough and you can and you wil achieve all your dreams

God says you can do whatever you put your mind to, just know that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Even in the places where your weak do not be afraid because God will give you strength when your weak. So when you are weak, do not take your weakness as a sign of failure, actually your weakness is a tool that God uses to manifest His strength within you and gives you the power to do great things and fulfill your dreams.

So no more excuses against your dreams and destiny, just faith and believe in yourself , believe God has a plan for you and believe you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, so go forth and pursue your dreams, do not be afraid of anything, do not be distracted because God’s got you and you are going to accomplish everything that He has placed inside of you for the glory of His name. Have a blessed week.

DREAM!

Dream it and God will fulfill it! Matthew 19:26 But with God all things are possible.”

Do you know that God has placed a dream on the inside of you that has to come out. Do you have a dream?,  if you do what’s your dream? Do you know what it is? And if you do are you living it or have you put it in the back banner thinking that it’s too big of a dream that it won’t come to pass.

What’s a dream? A dream is a strongly desired goal or purpose-merriam-webster. What’s your purpose in life? , what’s that thing that you feel inside your heart and you believe God has called you to do?. If you feel strongly about it in the depth of your heart do it, whatever it is God has called you to do.

I know many of you have dreams inside of you that God has given you but many times you have been discouraged by the outside things that have happened to you and you have second-guessed your purpose and you have doubted what God has called you to do and you feel like there is nothing special about you.

Change your perception and change your life. Do not think about the negative things about you and start thinking positive things about you. Because I believe that you have something special within you and only you can fulfill that purpose and only you can do what God has called you to do to make an impact in this world.

So many times the enemy has lied to you that you and you have lost sight of your vision, you have lost sight of your dreams, you have lost sight of your goals and you find yourself doing one thing after the other with no vision and that has left you exhausted and caused you to live a life  of fear and with no purpose.

Wake up from your slumber and dream again, stop sabotaging your own dreams, stop thinking negative thoughts, stop listening to the naysayers, stop surrounding yourself with friends that do not support your dreams, stop surrounding yourself with the dream killers because they are there to distract you from your goals and purpose and start surrounding yourself with positive thinking people, disconnect yourself from all the people that try to sabotage you from reaching your goals and destiny and surround yourself with like-minded people that see where you’re going and call out the best in the you vice versa.

Your dreams matter, God has a purpose and a plan for your dreams and desires allow Him to use them for His glory today. He says in His word in Jeremiah 29:11 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

No this today that God has placed his Holy Spirit inside of you to awaken your spirit to dream big for God and He will take you places you have never been before. Stay inspired and never stop dreaming big!
