WHO WILL WIN TODAY?


war
Galatians‬ ‭5:24-25‬ ‭NKJV
“And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
‭‭
Each day that we are given is special in some way, and what we do with it is extremely important. The more intentional about life I become I begin to take a closer look within myself to find out who is winning in my life. Is it my soul (flesh) or my spirit?

Now for starters my role is to encourage everyone to attend church…..you know because it’s good for you. However, over the years I have heard a number of reasons, excuses, and justifications for why people aren’t able to attend church. What I have realized though is how so many miss what is really happening when they don’t attend.

There’s more to this than just missing out on spiritual growth and a large family of believers. It starves our spirit of the needed nutrients that produce growth, giving us the ability to fulfill God’s plan for our lives. This was spoken in the previous verses 22-23 regarding the fruit of the Spirit.

This is not a once a week kind of thing….it is every single day. Each day holds its own challenges but who’s going to win, the flesh or the spirit? The more we commit ourselves to spending time with the Lord and seeking His plan, the stronger our spirit becomes.

You ever notice how hard it is to get yourself to exercise? It’s like pulling teeth, but once you start the process it gets easier and easier. The same goes for our soul, its desires are to sleep in, and sit on the couch longer.

The more our spirit is fed the more we desire. The more we desire the stronger we become. The stronger we become the less the soul wins, ultimately bringing more glory to God.

So who are you allowing to win in your life? Nobody to blame but ourselves for the end result. I encourage you to stop allowing your flesh to have rule and start feeding your spirit so you can have true victory.

Declare today and every day, “My spirit will rule today and I will win in Jesus’ name.”

THE JOURNEY TO THE NEXT LEVEL!


outside-the-box

Exodus 13:21-22, 21And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. 22He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.

He is still leading the same way!

Once saved out of your Egypt God still keeps the Same Principles

1. Jesus has set up a leader in the House, your Pastor
2. He has set up the Pillar of Cloud and Fire, The Holy Spirit

Romans 8:14-17, For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

We are on the journey to our DESTINY!

It is a process of maturity and growth 
2 Cor. 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

WILL YOU GO?

When the PILLAR came to the Promised Land, a destination, not everyone chose to follow the Pillar, or the Leader.

Deut. 1:30-33, The Lord your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, 31and in the wilderness where you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.’ 32Yet, for all that, you did not believe the Lord your God, 33who went in the way before you to search out a place for you to pitch your tents, to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day.

They chose not to FOLLOW and step into the next portion of their purpose, so they wandered for 40 years in the wilderness.

They never reached the Promised Landexcept for 2.

BE A JOSHUA AND A CALEB

They believed
Their journey was postponed for a bit, BUT THEY COMPLETED THE RACE.

Phil 3:13, Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Before we forget and move to the next level, we should evaluate our past year so we do not make the same mistake again.

PUT YOUR HAND TO THE PLOW, AND DON’T LOOK BACK!

YOU ARE CREATED FOR SUPERNATURAL GROWTH


Big God

GOD CREATED EVERYTHING TO BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY!

All the LIVING creation of God was made to produce after its own kind (Gen. 1:24).  ALL CREATION WAS SET UP TO BE FRUITFUL AND THEN TO MULTIPLY.

I love that about our Father! He is an ABUNDANTLY ABOVE GOD (Eph 3:20) not a barely making it God! GOOD EXPECTS US TO GROW, INCREASE, BE FRUITFUL AND TO MULTIPLY (not just to add to our numbers). IT IS IN OUR DNA!

GOD ACTUALLY COMMANDED US TO BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY!

Gen. 1:28, Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Father God did not give them an option.  He TOLD THEM that they were to be fruitful and to multiply.  He did not tell them to survive, He did not tell them to just make it by, He did not tell them He hoped it worked out, He did not tell them to add, HE TOLD THEM TO MULTIPLY!!

GOD COMMENDED GROWTH and MULTIPLICATION!

When we are productive Jesus actually knows that we can be trusted with the principles of His kingdom and He will promote you!  Matt. 25:17-30 shows that if you have it and you are not fruitful, He will take it from you and give it to someone else.  

JESUS HAS AMAZING PLANS FOR FRUITFULNESS AND MULTIPLICATION IN YOUR LIFE, WHY ARE YOU SETTLING FOR SURVIVAL?

STAND UP IN FAITH AND START LIVING THE GOD LIFE THAT JESUS PURCHASED FOR YOU ON THE TREE.

1) God put the DNA in you to be fruitful and multiply.

2) God commanded all that have a seed to be fruitful and multiply.

3) God blesses us more when we are growing and multiplying.

OBEYING GOD CAN ONLY BRING THE BEST INTO YOUR LIFE!

No GROWTH? Something is WRONG!


be_fruitful

“NOT GROWING IS A PERVERSION OF YOUR DIVINE PURPOSE OR GROWTH IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE.”  Tiff Shuttlesworth

Are you growing?

NO…. I AM NOT TALKING IN YOUR HEIGHT OR GIRTH!

Spiritually, soul (3 John 2:2, Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.), financially, physically, intellectually, in every area of our lives there MUST BE GROWTH!

GOD CREATED US TO GROW AND TO INCREASE!

Gen. 1:11-12 says that Father created every portion of the planet to reproduce (grow, and increase).

GOD SAID TO EVERY PORTION OF CREATION IN GEN. 1:22, And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

GOD SAID TO MAN IN GEN. 1:28a, Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion…”

GOD’S INTENTION IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN FRUITFULNESS AND MULTIPLICATION!  This is the heart and plan of our Creator.  He did not stutter or change His mind.  This is the law of the FIRSTS.  This is the law of INTENTION.  We cannot try to make Jesus conform to our philosophy or experiential christianity.  WE ARE GOVERNED BY THE INTENTION AND PLAN OF OUR CREATOR, not experiences.

LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU THAT WAS IN CHRIST JESUS, Phil. 2:5.

SHIFT, CHANGE DIRECTION, CHANGE OUR THINKING!  THINK LIKE OUR GOD!  HE HAS PLANNED FOR YOU TO BE FRUITFUL & MULTIPLY!  

ARE YOU READY?

SURVIVAL IS ONLY AN EXISTENCE!


DivineMultiplication

God created you for SUPERNATURAL GROWTH!  

That is right I said GROWTH!

So many believers get into the mode of survival.  The other day I asked someone how they were doing and they said, “I’m surviving.”  

WHAT?  Surviving?  That is not what we have been created to do.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IS WHAT WE RECEIVE.  

If you actually believe that you are just a survivor, barely making it, hoping to get through, then that is exactly what your life will consist of…….SURVIVAL.

Jesus has not made us to just SURVIVE, He created us to OVERCOME and MULTIPLY.

YOUR GOD NATURE IS MULTIPLICATION!!

Gen. 1:28, And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth. AMP

WE MUST START BELIEVE THAT WE ARE WHO GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE OR WE WILL ALWAYS LIVE IN SURVIVAL MODE!

Rom. 8:37, Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.

TOMORROW – PROOF THAT YOU WERE CREATED FOR MULTIPLICATION AND THAT NO GROWTH MEANS A PERVERSION OF YOUR DIVINE PURPOSE!

Spiritual DEHYDRATION!


Dehydration

Yesterday we showed in the Word how sin can dry up your spiritual bones.  When sin enters your life and it is allowed to remain, then it dries up the fresh anointing.  KEEP THE SIN OUT!

Dehydration is when you are not getting enough fluids in your physical body.  The results can be extreme from minor to literal death.  The symptoms can go from weakness to dizziness, all the way to confusion, passing out and even death.  WE MUST STAY HYDRATED!  

In the Spirit it is no different.  When you are going through a dry time you have to ask the WHY question.

Some people are DRY, DEHYDRATED BECAUSE OF:

1)  Sin

2) YOU ARE NOT SPENDING TIME WITH JESUS. We are supposed to drink between 2-3 liters of water a day to keep our physical bodies from dehydration.  If we do not spend time with Jesus daily in His Word and in prayer then we are going to spiritually dehydrate.  We will begin to dry up spiritually.  DO YOU SPEND DAILY TIME WITH THE LORD?  If not then you cannot be surprised when you feel distant and begin to lose your passion for Christ.

3)  NO GROWTH.  If you are only going to hear the Word on Sundays (if you make it), then you will dry up.  I went to Rock Solid Faith and I graduated!  It is like saying, “I went to first grade, so now I am done.”  We all know that is foolish.  When you stop growing, you start drying up!  When you stop growing towards, you start growing apart.  Ps. 1:2-3 gives us the prescription for fruitfulness and growth, But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

4)  NO TIME.  If you do not have time to be in God’s house, to pray, to read the Word, to be in a ministry, THEN YOU ARE TOO BUSY!  You do not have time to not have time to stay hydrated!  Why didn’t you drink water during the 5k race?  You passed out and we almost lost you! I DIDN’T HAVE TIME…..  Come on now, we know that even in the natural that is a foolish answer.  MAKE JESUS NUMBER 1 IN YOUR LIFE AND WATCH YOUR PASSION AND WALK WITH GOD FLOURISH!

Matt 5:6, You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.
