LOUDEST VOICES IN YOUR HEAD?


voices

MY DAD ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT IT IS OK TO TALK TO YOURSELF AS LONG AS YOU GET THE RIGHT ANSWERS……LOL!

The TRUTH is that we hear many voices in our heads.

Our own voice….

Other people’s voices…..

Our past’s voice…..

The voice of the flesh / temptation….

The Devil’s voice….

THERE ARE SO MANY VOICES IN OUR LIVES, BUT THE LOUDEST VOICE AND MOST POWERFUL VOICE SHOULD BE THAT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT & THE WORD!!

Whoever is loudest in your head is the one we usually listen to the most.  It is time to shut down all other voices but the Word and the Spirit.

Ps. 119:11, Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Heb 4:12, For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Rom. 8:14, For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

Rev. 2:7a, He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

1 Kings 19:12, And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper.

IS THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE WORD THE LOUDEST VOICE IN YOUR HEAD?

CHOOSE TO LISTEN TO HIM BEFORE ANYONE OR ANYTHING ELSE AND YOU WILL LIVE A LIFE OF BLESSING AND PROTECTION.

WHAT HAPPENED…I WAS HEALED AND THEN…..


understand

YOU LEGITIMATELY GOT YOUR MIRACLE…..THEN……THE SAME SICKNESS, PAINS, RETURNED.

WHAT HAPPENED?

John 10:10, The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy…

Did you get healed?  YES!

Was it real? YES!

The devil’s job is to steal what Jesus has blessed you with.  Satan does not want you healed, healthy and blessed so when God gives you your miracle in Jesus’ name Satan is out to STEAL that blessing.

STAND IN FAITH!

Just like the devil will tempt you with a sin that you were delivered from, he will tempt you with the symptoms of the sickness or disease you were freed from.

WHEN THAT TEMPTATION COMES YOU CANNOT CONFESS OR LOSE FAITH – THAT IS WHEN YOU PRESS IN AND STAND FIRM!!

Heb. 10:23, Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Mark 5:36, But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”

When the evil news came to Jairus that his little baby girl was dead Jesus told him not to be afraid or lose faith!  HE RECEIVED HIS DAUGHTER BACK FROM DEATH BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO CHANGE HIS CONFESSION NO MATTER WHAT THE FACTS LOOKED LIKE.

Another reason some lose their healing is because of SIN!

John 5:14, Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.”

JESUS HEALED A MAN AND THEN TOLD HIM TO STOP SINNING OR A GREATER SICKNESS WOULD COME UPON HIM.

Do not live in sin after you have been freed from sickness or disease.  That sin gives the devil a foothold to again afflict your body with a sickness that is greater than the last one.  Cleanse yourself and walk circumspectly before the Lord.

Eph. 6:13-14a, Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore…..

HAIR IN THE BISCUITS


hair

IS THAT A HAIR IN THE BISCUIT?

Have you ever started eating a biscuit and found a hair in it?  It is different from just finding a piece of hair in mashed potatoes because you can just pick it out, BUT when you find one in the biscuit you know it was baked into the dough!

You cannot just pull it and it comes out.  It was baked into the fabric, the base of the biscuit itself!

YOU AND I HAVE TO BE LIKE A HAIR IN THE BISCUIT!

We must be FAITHFUL, CONSISTENT, so baked into Christ that CONSISTENCY is the ONLY WAY!

Jesus is our EXAMPLE of FAITHFULNESS!

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

Heb 13:8, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

WE MUST HAVE TENACITY IN THE SPIRIT THAT GOING BACKWARDS IS NEVER AN OPTION!

We must be like Jesus.

WHAT IS THAT TEMPTATION THAT SEEMS TO DRAW YOU BACK?

Today I challenge you to be LIKE A HAIR IN THE BISCUIT and determine that you will not go back to that sin.

Today I challenge you to be LIKE A HAIR IN THE BISCUIT and determine you will be CONSISTENT with daily reading the Word and prayer.

Today I challenge you to be LIKE A HAIR IN THE BISCUIT and determine you will be CONSISTENTLY in the house of heaven each Sunday.

Determination, tenacity, faithfulness, consistency, passion, focus – ALL FOR JESUS!

A WAY OF ESCAPE


escape

1 Cor. 10:13, The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

WE NEVER HAVE TO SIN!

We all have a certain temptation that is our kryptonite and many use that as their excuse to continue in their sinful actions, BUT THAT CANNOT EVER BE AN EXCUSE AFTER READING THE DEVOTIONS TODAY.

When the temptation to sin comes into your life (and they will), we have a FAITHFUL GOD who has already created an escape route for us from that temptation.  

WHEN SOMEONE SAYS THAT THEY HAD NO CONTROL OVER THE SIN THEY ARE NOT TELLING THE TRUTH!

1 John 4:4, But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.

The issue is NOT TAKING THE ESCAPE ROUTE PROVIDED BY JESUS!

I also want to remind you that you are no longer a slave to sin, but have power over every temptation and sin that strives to trip you up.

Rom. 6:14,  For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God’s favor and mercy].  AMP

YOU CANNOT FAIL WITH THE POWER OVER THE TEMPTATION AND THEN WITH THE ESCAPE ROUTE PROVIDED.

Choose NOT to SIN and you will always come out in VICTORY!

TOO MUCH TEMPTATION!


dog

WE HAVE ALL HEARD OR EVEN SAID, “THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.”

We have all had that thought flood our minds that the temptation is stronger than we are.

THE TRUTH?

I have great news for you….

YOU ARE NO LONGER A SERVANT OF SIN!  YOU ARE FREE!

Rom. 6:14-18, Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. 15 Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! 16 Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. 17 Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. 18 Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.

YOU HAVE BEEN FREED FROM THE POWER OF SIN BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

I didn’t want to sin, but the temptation was too strong.

1 Cor. 10:13, The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. 

THERE IS NO TEMPTATION THAT JESUS WONT GIVE US A WAY TO ESCAPE FROM!

We have to choose our environments wisely.

Be careful who you hang out with.

Be careful to not open the door to a past sin.

FILL YOURSELF WITH THE WORD AND SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO KNOW JESUS MORE THAN YOU AND YOU WILL ONLY EXCEL!

No temptation is too strong, you and I have to choose Christ over them!

I GOT THIS THING…REALLY?


notice-watch-your-step

1 Cor. 10:12, If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall.

Isn’t it exciting that as we grow in Jesus those sins and weights of the past seem to lose all power over our lives?

BUT

Do not drop your guard!

Some Christians get so filled with pride that when they see a new believer who is growing out of their sins they do not help them, they condemn them.  Even when some of the sins are ones they used to struggle with. 

DO NOT GET PRIDEFUL!

When you think you have it all in your pocket, that’s one of the most dangerous days of your life. When we think that our old temptations, our old demons cannot penetrate, tempt or draw us away then we are in a place of danger!

I am not saying that you cannot be VICTORIOUS over the sins of the past. What I am saying is, do not get so prideful that you are no longer on guard against sin. Pride can cause you to mock those who are going through the same struggles you once had.

BE CAREFUL, LEST YOU FALL INTO THE SAME SIN!

Gal 6:1, Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.

Weights & Sins


weights and sin

Hebrews 12:1-2, Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

EVERY SINGLE PERSON DEALS WITH SOME SIN OR WEIGHT THAT THEY STRUGGLE WITH IN LIFE.

It might be something that is private and nobody knows about, or it might be a sin that is more visible that people judge quickly concerning.  Either manner, hidden or evident, it is time to LAY IT ASIDE!

LAY ASIDE – NKJV

STRIP OFF – NLT

THROW ASIDE – AMP

STRIP DOWN – MSG

THROW OFF EXTRA BAGGAGE – CEB

Are we catching the hint?  GET RID OF IT!  Determine to not allow it to slow you down in running the race!

HOW DO I GET RID OF IT?

1) Know that Jesus has broken sin’s power in your life. (Rom 6:6, We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.)

2) No temptation is too powerful. (1 Cor. 10:13b,  And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.)

3) Be accountable to someone!

4) MAKE A DECISION, AND EVEN IF YOU FALL, GET UP, ASK FORGIVENESS AND MOVE FORWARD TO VICTORY.  Your weakness will become your strength.

Phil 3:13-14, 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, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

GOUGE YOUR EYE OUT!

WHAT?

Ok, This is what I hear often, “the temptation is too strong Pastor.”

Let’s all be honest, we are all tempted with sin just like Adam and Eve were, BUT……..  We have an advantage!

WE HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVING INSIDE US!

Over the years, I have found that the people who continue to choose reputation end up allowing themselves to be placed in an environment where the sin is most prevalent.

Alcohol – DO NOT GO TO THE BARS AND PARTIES!

Drugs – DO NOT GO TO THE AREA OR HANG OUT WITH THE PEOPLE DOING THE DRUGS!

Swearing – DO NOT HANG OUT WITH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CUSSING!

Porn – DO NOT GET ON YOUR COMPUTER OR BUY THE MAGAZINES!

Sex – DO NOT GO TO THE BOYFRIEND OR GIRLFRIENDS HOUSE!

Shopping – DO NOT GO TO THE STORES WITH CASH OR CREDIT CARDS!

WE HAVE TO MAKE CHOICES TO CUT OFF SIN FROM OUR LIVES.

JESUS SAID….

Matt 5:29-30,  If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

NO TEMPTATION IS TOO GREAT!

1 Cor 10:13,  The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand.

YOU MIGHT HAVE TO BREAK OFF OLD FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS IF THEY CONTINUE TO BE USED TO TEMPT YOU WITH SIN!

You Taste SALTY.. Nasty!


Genesis 19:17
So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.”

Genesis 19:26
But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Lot’s wife had a love affair with Sodom, and the lifestyle of the world. It cost her everything in the attempt to grab that old life. 

This is one of the saddest moments in ministry. Watching people choose their old life over the life of Jesus. I can remember as each soul received Jesus and the joy that covered their face and the peace that flooded their soul. You could see the change in their lives, and they could not wait to be in the presence of Jesus. Their passion for the Word, getting into classes, asking question after question as they grew in relationship.

THEN!

THE CROSSROADS……everyone comes to those crossroads. The temptation to go back!

A friend, a job, a party, some sex, a man or a woman……

THE CROSSROADS….

Many choose to go back to their old life. They choose to return to what they hated in the first place. They asked Jesus to take them out of that lifestyle, they ESCAPEDbut did not choose to cut ALL the cords. They always left a little door open, just a small one, just enough….

2 Peter 2:22
But it has happened to them according to the true proverb:A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

Do not be like Lot’s wife – she lost it all because she did not cut the love of the world. Run all the way to Jesus, and do not look back!

Luke 9:62
62 But Jesus said to him, “ No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
