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.

Love wins

Identity Theft

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]- John 10:10

The devil is a thief that comes to steal, kill and destroy your identity. His goal is to get you out of God‘s perfect will so that you can believe his lies and deception. Be careful who your listening to or who speaks into your life. You have to silence and shut down every voice that comes into your mind that is not of God and you need to disconnect from every negative relationships that are speaking evil against you and sabotaging your destiny.

Your identity is in Christ not in the world or people. When you let things control you most of the time they become your master and you end up letting them define you.

How many times has the enemy lied to your mind and called you something that your not and you believed him?. Lets look at the story of Eve in the Bible when she was deceived by the serpent.

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”

He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”

And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”- Genesis 3:1-13.

As we have read in the scripture above Eve forgot who she was in Christ and believed the lies of the enemy (the serpent). She forgot that her identity was in Christ. The devil used God’s word against Eve and made her think that she was not good enough and lied to her that God was withholding the truth from her and she believed him. The devil is the father of lies and deception.

Many times when you don’t know who you are in Christ we become vulnerable to the devils tactics and it’s easy to get destructed by the out side noise. Especially when you have received rejection from you friends and people you have found yourself doubting who you are. You were made in the image of God everything about you is perfect because you look like God. Don’t entertain or allow the enemy lies in your mind and heart that cause you to doubt who you are.

The Bible says..I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.- Galatians 2:29

Always remember the enemy’s mission is to steal your identity and robe you of God’s best. He is working day and night by using people to attack your looks, character , who you are and belief. But always be alert and walk in God’s discernment and He will protect you from the the evil one.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.- 1 Peter 5:8.

Just like Eve in the Bible, Have you ever been deceived by the devils lies and you found yourself making decisions you thought you would never make? May be you were rejected,May be when you where a child there certain things your parents said to you and you doubted your worth, maybe it was a co-worker, May be it was your wife or husband and may be the friends you trusted. Whatever rejection or negative lie they declared upon your life don’t believe it because you are a perfect reflection of God. The Bible says… He says you are fearfully and wonderfully made- Psalm 139:14.

Nothing will ever separate you from the love of God. Believe what God says about you not man. Your validation is in Christ not this world. He says that nothing can separate you from His love- Romans 8:35. Don’t let the enemy steal your identity. You’re identity is in Christ alone. Believe in God’s love for you and know He knows what’s best for you.

Stay connected to God, draw near to Him, seek Him and you will discover your true identity is Him.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”- Jeremiah 1:5

You are a child of God, created and molded in His image and no devil in hell can steal that because you were blood bought by the blood of Jesus Christ who died on the cross for you because He loves you so much. Your identity is the lord and no one can change that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fear the dream killer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Psalm 23:4

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

2 Timothy 1:7 

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

Isaiah 41:10

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

Deuteronomy 31:6

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

Joshua 1:3-9

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

Psalm 27:1

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

Psalm 56:3-4

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

Isaiah 41:10

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

Isaiah 41:13

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

Isaiah 54:4

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

Matthew 10:26

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

Declare this prayer:

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

Peace beyond your understanding in 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy New year!!!🎆🎊

God is Able

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tips on how to not let your emotions control your destiny

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

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

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

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

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.

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.”
