STOP SULKING!


Sulking

HAVE YOU EVER MET A PERSON WHO IS LIKE EEYORE?

STOP SULKING AND START SPEAKING AND DECLARING THE WORD OF GOD OVER YOUR SITUATION!

When trouble comes in many believers’ lives they begin to wonder, wander, and whine.

BUT

GOD HAS NOT CALLED US TO SULK HE HAS CALLED US TO STAND IN VICTORY NO MATTER WHAT IS COMING AGAINST US.

James 1:2,  My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials….

WHAT?

That is right, count it JOY!

Sulking, whining does not sound like JOY……lol!

SHIFT YOUR MINDSET, SHIFT YOUR SPIRIT, SHIFT YOUR CONFESSION, SHIFT YOUR VISION, SHIFT YOUR REACTIONS, SHIFT YOUR LIFE TO THE WORD!

Shifting means changing gears – it has a direct effect on the machine!

CHANGE GEARS AND SHIFT INTO THE JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY!

Make a choice that you will not SULK, but that you will REJOICE and LAUGH IN THE DEVIL’S FACE!

Phil. 4:4, Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

IT IS A CHOICE OF LIFE.

A WAY OF LIVING.

WE CHOOSE HOW TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT IS AVAILABLE TO US THROUGH JESUS.

Some will live in VICTORY, and some will choose DEFEAT!

CHOOSE JOY AND LAUGHTER EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THE STORM.

I WANT GENUINE HAPPINESS!


looking-for-true-happiness

HAPPINESS IS AN EMOTION THAT SHOULD NOT GOVERN US, BUT IT SURE IS A GREAT SENSATION!

Joy is our constant (Neh. 8:10b,  for the joy of the LORD is your strength.) because it is the personality of the Holy Spirit who lives in us (Gal. 5:22, But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,).

WHEN WE ARE IN A GOOD PLACE WITH JESUS THEN NOT ONLY DOES THE JOY OF THE LORD SUPERSEDE OUR ENVIRONMENTS, BUT HAPPINESS COMES TO OUR SOUL!

A smile……GENUINE!

A chuckle!

A laugh!

Inside our soulish man is beaming!

Prov. 17:22,  A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.  AMP

There are few words that can wrap around the sensation of true happiness.  It is not a fleeting feeling of infatuation.  It is not a woman or a man.  It is not money or fame.  TRUE GODLY HAPPINESS BURSTS THROUGH YOUR SPIRIT AND PENETRATES AND SATURATES THE VERY FIBERS OF YOUR SOUL AND BODY.

You can actually tell when someone is happy.  They walk different.  They hold their heads up different.  They have a step in their gait.

HOW DO I GET HAPPINESS?

You NEVER seek happiness………………. THE REASON……..it is not hidden.

IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS IS FULLNESS OF JOY!

Ps. 16:11, You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  ESV

When you seek happiness in any other avenue it will always be short-lived.  

THE ONLY WAY TO BE HAPPY LONG-TERM IS TO GET THE JOY FROM JESUS AND THEN HAPPINESS (the emotion) WILL ERUPT IN YOUR SOUL & BODY!

Stop looking for happiness in temporal things……YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO KEEP SEARCHING!

PLUNDER HELL


Soul Winners

Luke 19:10, For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

Riley Stephenson of Kenneth Copeland Ministries gave an example about reaching our friends for Jesus that I thought was very powerful.

An athiest made a statement to a Christian that he must be truly hated and despised if a Christian would not even be willing to try to save him from the Lake of Fire.

If we saw a person walking out into the road, and they did not see a car coming at them, what would you do? If you did nothing they would be killed. Would you say, “I don’t want them to not like me”, or “what if they do not listen? What if they reject me trying to help them?” We all know that we would at the very least yell to them, if not run to them and try to snatch them from certain death if they remained on the same track.

If we say we love our family and our friends, yet do not share Jesus with them, but allow them to enter into eternity’s torture unhindered, how much do we really hate them?

What happens if they reject you?

What happens if they laugh at you?

What happens if they mock you?

What happens if they say that they are not interested?

AT LEAST YOU WILL KNOW THAT YOU DID EVERYTHING TO SNATCH THEM FROM CERTAIN DESTRUCTION!

If you and I do nothing to stop the guy from walking into the road and getting hit by the car, then we have to ask ourselves if we really love and care about people.

If you and I do nothing to stop our family and friends from walking into eternity without Jesus, and being cast into the Lake of Fire, we have to ask ourselves, do we really love and care for them?

Let’s have a paradigm shift – IT IS NOT ABOUT US! IT IS ABOUT SAVING THEM!

SHARE JESUS’ SALVATION WITH SOMEONE TODAY.

HOW DO I SHARE JESUS? We will show you tomorrow how to share your faith with family, friends, and even your enemies.

LAUGH IN THE DEVIL’S FACE!


victory-over-satan

SOMETIMES WHEN HELL IS BREAKING LOOSE YOU JUST HAVE TO LAUGH!

WHAT?

You cannot be shocked when Satan is striving to bring discouragement into your life.  He knows that if he can get you to start doubting Jesus that he has you in the same position he had Eve.

Prov. 17:22a, A merry heart does good, like medicine…..

Satan is a toothless roaring lion trying to scare and intimidate your life (1 Pet. 5:8).

THE GOOD NEWS?

James 4:7, Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

RESIST AND HE WILL FLEE!  HE KNOWS HE IS DEFEATED!  HE KNOWS YOU HAVE MORE POWER THAN HE DOES!  HE KNOWS THAT HE HAS TO SUBMIT TO THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

1 John 4:4, Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES OR THE DEVIL TO STEAL YOUR LAUGH!

LAUGH IN THE DEVIL’S FACE!  COME ON, RIGHT NOW, LAUGH RIGHT OUT LOUD!

You will scare him and he will flee from you because the JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH!

You can smile, laugh, joke, even walk around like you have the world by the tail, but inside you feel alone.

Det. 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.

Matt. 28:20b, And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

EVEN IF EVERYONE IN THIS TEMPORARY WORLD LEAVES YOU, JESUS SAID HE NEVER WILL!

LAUGHTER…..Heals the Heart!


I got up and put the fresh logs on the fire and then went to the kitchen to make the coffee when I heard Pastor Rhonda laughing in the other room.  At first it was like, “what is she laughing about?”  

THE LAUGHTER TOOK ME FROM THE KITCHEN TO THE ROOM SHE WAS IN TO FIND OUT WHAT SHE WAS LAUGHING ABOUT!

Laughter is a magnet!

Laughter is healing!

Laughter lifts the heaviness off our lives!

LAUGHTER IS FROM JESUS!

Prov. 17:22, A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.

Prov. 15:13, A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.

LAUGH TODAY!!

WATCH PEOPLE COME TO YOU BECAUSE LAUGHTER IS A LOST SOUND IN TODAY’S WORLD!

Laughter is good for your health

  • Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
  • Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
  • Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
  • Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

A GREAT DAY TO LAUGH!


You-Made-Me-Laugh-So-Hard...

Life can get real serious!

INTENSE!

EXTREME!

Proverbs 15:13, A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.

The problem is when we allow life to get so intense for so long that we lose our joy, and smile.  

You do not understand Pastor how hard life is right now!  Pastor, everything is collapsing around me.  I have nothing to smile about!

I am not talking laugh like LOL….

I mean laugh like you might pee yourself!

HONESTLY!  There are times you have to make a decision to simply LAUGH!

If you are going through difficult times then take a second and LAUGH in the devil’s face right now, and tell him he will never win because Jesus already defeated him.

If you have not LAUGHED because of life, then it is time to get your smile on.  

Prov. 17:22, A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.

CHOOSE TO LAUGH TODAY!  LAUGH AT THE DEVIL!  LAUGH AT YOURSELF!  LAUGH AT A SITUATION!  

LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH…..IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG!

SMILE PLEASE!


jesus_laughing21

Life can sure get overwhelming at times.  CAN I HEAR AN AMEN?

There are times life gets too overwhelming for long periods of time and we begin to lose our joy.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU LAUGHED OUT LOUD (lol….does not count)?

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A BELLY ROLL LAUGHING FIT WHRE YOU ABOUT CRIED?

John 15:11, I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!

When I was a kid and thought about Jesus I never thought about Him smiling.  It was always that He was sober faced, all business, no smirk or smile.  Then I read this verse and thought about the guys that He hung out with for those years of ministry, and said to myself, “There is no way Jesus didn’t laugh and have fun.”

WHEN YOUR JOY OVERFLOWS……IT MEANS THAT IT COMES OUT AND OVER!  That means you smile and laugh.  That the joy inside must burst through your lips and there is an evidence of what is inside.

“BE FILLED WITH MY JOY”

Jesus wants you to be FILLED WITH HIS JOY!  Laugh today…. Smile today….. 

1 Peter 1:7-8, You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him—with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation.

LITERALLY, LAUGH OUT LOUD TODAY!
