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.

PRAISE DAY!


ChooseToPraise

OK, WE HAVE NOT DONE THIS IN A LONG TIME AND TODAY IS THE DAY!

What?

It is time to ONLY PRAISE!

All day, no matter what junk is happening around you, nobody is allowed to complain, ONLY PRAISE!

This is going to be REAL DIFFICULT for some because when the negative comes the first reaction is to moan, complain and whine.

TODAY…

NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING YOU AND I  ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO PRAISE JESUS THROUGH IT!

1 Pet. 4:12, Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you.

Ps. 146:2, I will praise the LORD as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath.

Ps. 43:2, When you go through deep waters, I will be with you when you go through rivers of difficulty,  you will not drown.  When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up;  the flames will not consume you.

Ps. 18:3, I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies.

ONLY PRAISE…..NO COMPLAINING!

THIS WILL BE A CHALLENGING AND EXCITING DAY!

We Will NOT BACK DOWN!


never-back-down

So many cower and whine when difficulty starts coming in their lives.

Let’s be honest, none of us enjoy trouble or hardship, but it sure does reveal our faith level.

WE MUST MAKE A CHOICE BEFORE HELL STARTS LICKING OUR TOES!

Huh?

WE MUST MAKE THE CHOICE BEFORE TROUBLE COMES THAT WE WILL NEVER BACK DOWN!

Don’t wait till the trouble comes to prepare.  Don’t wait till struggle comes to get sured up.  Don’t wait till it gets intense to infuse strength.

DO IT NOW AND MAKE THE DECISION CLEAR – I AM NEVER BACKING DOWN!

How do I do that?

Know who you are in Christ Jesus.

Know the TRUTH and live in TRUTH!

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

Phil 4:13,  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Rom. 8:31, What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

Rom. 8:37, No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

Mark 11:23, I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.

COME ON BELIEVER…..BELIEVE IN WHO AND WHAT THE KING HAS PREPARED YOU FOR ON THIS EARTH!

YOU ARE NOT CREATED FOR FAILURE OR SURVIVAL……BUT FOR VICTORY!

Look yourself in the mirror and say, “WITH JESUS ON MY SIDE THIS WEEK, I CANNOT FAIL, NO MATTER WHAT THE DEVIL OR LIFE BRINGS AGAINST ME.”

NEVER BACK DOWN!

MY LIFE STINKS!


I_HATE_MY_LIFE_

For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4 AMP)

Have you had those days, no, those years when you hated your life?

It seems like everything that could go wrong has and will again!!!

When this occurs there are choices to make.

1Lay down and give up
2Whine and go into depression
3Get up and GRAB YOUR VICTORY!

Ok, this is what I do…
I am going to be transparent…..
I usually whine and complain for about an hour. I allow myself that time for a pity party. It never fixes anything, but, it feels good to the flesh.

You can HATE your life, your situation, your family, your job, your church, but that is not the problem. It will not change anything to HATE your life.
Jesus did not come for you to HATE your life, He came to give you life and life more abundant (John 10:10).

VICTORY comes over your situation when you decide that laying in the mud does not fix anything. We are still so very blessed in our lives in America.

Do me a favor today
1Write down the bad things in your life on a piece of paper.
2Write down all the blessings, and begin to thank Him right out loud. 
a. Psalms 30:12, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
b. Psalms 150:6, Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!

YOU WILL FIND THAT YOUR BLESSINGS FAR OUT WEIGH YOUR STRUGGLES.

eXcuses, “X” Out Blessings


stop-making-excuses

Daniel
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came to Jerusalem and took it over. The king wanted some of the Israelites’ royal blood to be taken back into captivity. They were taught the language, trained in Babylonian ways to serve the king. Daniel refused to defile himself and took a stand and a test about eating unclean foods. He gained favor with the chief officers. God elevated Daniel through the supernatural ability like Joseph, to interpret dreams. Daniel rose in position and posture in the kingdom of the Babylonians, even though he was a Jewish captive.
Jesus can elevate you even in the worst conditions
Be consistent and faithful to Him, and He will raise you up!

Daniel 6:3-4
Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. 4 So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithfulnor was there any error or fault found in him.

Daniel was stolen from his home.
Daniel was taken from his mom and dad.
Daniel was brought to a foreign country.
Daniel was being reprogrammed by the Babylonian kingdom.
Daniel could not practice his spirituality like he used to in Jerusalem
.

THE LIST OF EXCUSES OF WHY DANIEL COULD NOT HAVE ASPIRED TO GREATEST IS LIMITLESS.

He could have blamed Neb!
He could have blamed God!
He could have blamed his circumstances!
He could whine & complain!

BUT
He chose not to use “X” cuses, but to be faithful to His God
.

He was known as a man with an EXCELLENT SPIRIT.
He was known as a man that was FAITHFUL.
He was known as a man without fault, or charge.
He was not perfect, but Daniel walked before His God.

HOW ARE YOU KNOWN IF YOUR NAME WAS IN THE BOOK?
WHAT ADJECTIVES WOULD BE NEXT TO YOUR NAME?

The Day AFTER THANKSGIVING!

THANK GOD I AM NOT A TURKEY!

Pastor, that was for yesterday!

NO!!!

THANK GOD I AM NOT A TURKEY IS FOR EVERY DAY.

Phil. 2:14-17, Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. 16 Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.

Eph 4:29, Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

LET’S MAKE A HABIT OF BEING PEOPLE THAT DO NOT COMPLAIN, BACKBITE, WHINE, GOSSIP!

Choose today to be a person that speaks life and not death!

THANK GOD I AM NOT A TURKEY……EVERYDAY!

Let’s please Jesus.

Did YOU Do It?


Being that LOVING PEOPLE is who we really are, it is imperative that we are ENCOURAGERS!

It is so rare today to have someone in our lives that actually believes in and encourages us.  The majority of us are surrounded with people that complain, mumble, grumble, whine, whimper, dig, use daggers………..

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW WHO ARE ENCOURAGERS? 

Jesus believed in people that were unrefined, and unbridled.  He believed in them even when they were foolish or in sin.

ARE YOU ONE OF THEM?

Prov 16:24, Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

1 Thess 5:11, So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.

Heb 10:25, And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Heb 3:13, but encourage one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

TODAY!!

HERE IS YOUR HOMEWORK.

Be an encourager for every person you come in contact with for the next 3 days.  HOW?  Within the first 30 seconds compliment something about them.  Take that second and let them know how you appreciate their character, their clothing……

WATCH their face, it will change!  PEOPLE JUST NEED OTHERS TO BELIEVE IN THEM AND SPEAK KIND WORDS.  Change the atmosphere of your life and those around you today – BE AN ENCOURAGER!

CRAPPY DAY TO INCREDIBLE!


HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DAY START OUT REALLY BAD?

Your mind tells you that it would have been wiser to slide back between the sheets and cover your head for the day….lol!

HOW DO WE CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF A DAY THAT STARTS OUT CRAPPY?

The number one thing is that you have to WANT to change its direction.  Some people like to wallow and whine that their day started out bad and then they begin to prophecy over their whole day.

FIRST THING…………….STOP TALKING!  The more you talk the more you convince yourself of the horrible day.

SECOND THING………..START THANKING!

Ps. 100:4-5, Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

EVEN THOUGH CRAP HITS THE FAN WE ARE STILL SO BLESSED!  Sometimes we forget how blessed we are even when things get difficult.  Stop complaining and start thanking!  PRAISING CHANGES YOUR VISION.

Acts. 16:25-26, Along about midnight, Paul and Silas were at prayer and singing a robust hymn to God. The other prisoners couldn’t believe their ears. Then, without warning, a huge earthquake! The jailhouse tottered, every door flew open, all the prisoners were loose.

PRAISE YOUR VISION, PRAISE YOUR DAY BACK INTO CLARITY OF JESUS!

The problem might still be there, but as you praise you will see HOW HUGE your GOD is, and that with HIM on your SIDE, you CANNOT FAIL!

ROMANS 8:31, So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?

Stop complaining it changes nothing.

START PRAISING AND YOU WILL ACTIVATE THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF GOD TO HEAL YOUR DAY!

praise changes climates
