Keep Your Mind on Heaven

Standard

I know the world is dark, cold, and evil. Right now it seems out of control. Sad truth is it is going to get even worse than what is currently has become. Keep your head up and your mind on Heaven. No matter how bad it seems, Jesus will always be our Light in this dark world. There is NO darkness in Him!

There are a lot of people who don’t have their roots planted deeply. They are falling away from the Word of God, because they never had their feet planted firmly in the first place. They are allowing themselves to be tricked and deceived. These people are looking at all types of sources yet failing to seek the only SOURCE.

I don’t believe people can convince you to serve someone other than God if you truly believe in Him. It is why it’s super important to get the Word inside of you. Read, study, and implement it into your lives daily. It’s more important now than ever.

There are things to come which will cause many to fear. However, stay focused and remember in Jesus there is no fear! I know we’re flesh and bone, but in the midst of it all Jesus is there and therefore, we have NOTHING to fear! Children of God has nothing to fear! Keep your eyes towards Heaven and stand firmly on the Word. Don’t allow anyone to come around you speaking against God, Jesus, and the Word.

There is so much unbelievable stuff going on behind the scenes. It’s all a ploy to change the hearts of man. There is only one God and He’s our Father who gave the world His ONLY begotten Son Jesus, there’s NO other! Don’t be fooled and don’t entertain any foolishness.

I was talking with someone this past weekend whom I had no clue whatsoever how he felt about Jesus. I rebuked this person and pleaded the blood of Jesus not just for Him, but for me as well for being in this person’s presence. Sadly we were at church. I asked him why do he go if he feel how he feel about Jesus, he said to help his dad run the church. Wow! It wasn’t my church, I was visiting another church. I immediately started praying for His soul before it’s too late for the young man. Many people are walking around feeling exactly like the young man. We are amongst many “wolves in sheep’s clothing. Beware and be aware!

Unbelievers, pretenders, and false messengers are everywhere and I encourage people to be very mindful of what and who they are entertaining. The devil is doing his job to kill, steal, and destroy. The Bible says “resist the devil and he will flee.” See him for what he is and always remember you have the victory in Jesus! “NO weapon formed against me/you in the name of Jesus will prosper!”

There is spiritual warfare raging every second, of every hour, of every day. We are all in the midst of it. The devil is here to destroy your minds, spirits, and bodies. He is the “father of lies and deceit.” Being on Jesus side you are covered and the devil is a “defeated foe.”

You can’t force anyone to believe and please don’t allow them to deceive you into not believing. The enemy is coming on every hand to try an shake you, keep standing on the Word. God is with you!!!

Seeing With Your Eyes Not Your Heart

Standard

I know some of you will get the title while others won’t. The past 2 weeks I’ve been on a well deserved vacation. No matter where I go, I always seem to give out words of encouragement,  advice, opinions, recommendations, etc. It’s fine, I love walking in my calling at all times and anywhere.

It NEVER ceases to amaze me the many people who are dealing with similar issues. People ask your opinion, recommendation, or advice, but most times they won’t/don’t take it. Over and over without fail I’ve encountered both women and men who are in unhappy relationships. Honestly, I get it! I understand why people do what they do. Many of them don’t, but I get it. What I found is regardless of how many times you tell the truth, those who don’t want to receive it; won’t!

No matter how much information is available on relationships  people will continue to do it their way. No matter how long people go through their revolving doors of life, they will continue to do things their way. Some people hit rock bottom, yet don’t even understand that they are there. It’s so sad!!

I believe one of the most false statements is “follow your heart.” If a person is thinking right and acknowledging the truth as the truth, along with following their hearts ok, I agreed 200%. However, if a person is solely following their hearts this means they’re being lead by their wrongs ways of thinking. They are going solely off of what they are feeling and therefore unable to process the truth. They see with the eyes of their hearts and not at all with the eyes in their heads! In relationships many mess up by going solely  off of what they feel. People must understand, acknowledge, and know that their thoughts and feeling are correct. They will know it’s true by the way they’re treated. Learn how to listen to what is said and how you’re spoken to by the one you love. While you’re listening, you must see if the words line up with the actions. Love is shown through more than words, actions tell the true story!! In relationships people must see the truth and accept it for what it is and be able to move on.

What else do a person have to do to show you they aren’t as into you as you are into them???????????? If a person is unfulfilled in their relationship; they are unhappy. If a person is committed but the one they’re with is ONLY there, but not committed; they are unhappy. If a person is abused, ostracized, controlled (told what to do, how to do it, where to go, when you can go, who you can be around, etc); etc they are unhappy. If a person is being disrespected and mistreated in any form; they are unhappy. If a person gives all they have only to get NOTHING in return; they are unhappy. If you got into a relationship because you thought a baby would keep it together, but you found out you were wrong; you are unhappy. If you thought you could change him or her and found out it’s impossible, but now you’re stuck unhappily in a relationship; you’re unhappy. If you thought your love could save him or her, but you found out instead you’ve about lost your sanity and yourself in the process; you’re unhappy. If you got with them knowing they were with someone else and you found out sharing someone else’s man or woman isn’t right or easy; you’re unhappy. If a person has to walk on eggshells or are afraid of who they are with in any way, then they are unhappy. People who are unhappy in their relationships are people who are in unhealthy relationships.

I can go on for days, but I don’t have the time to do so. Individual’s must look beyond their feelings, because beyond their feelings lies the truth. See with your eyes wide open NOT wide shut. Meaning, see what is before you and not with your hearts. A person will show you EXACTLY what they think of you by the way they treat you. If you’re fine with being treated like poop, because you’re going off the feelings of your hearts, then you will be treated like poop!!!! You teach the person you’re with EXACTLY how to treat you! You are treated EXACTLY how you allow.

Too many people give the people they are with what they want, yet these people never get what they need in return from the people they are with. It doesn’t matter how much you love a person, if they don’t feel the same about you it WILL SHOW!!!! It will show in how they treat you; period! When a person is hell bent on loving a person who doesn’t truly love them in return, then what you get will be EXACTLY what you accepted and allowed. Stop being so fixated on how you feel about the other person that you are blind and start seeing and understanding what the other person feels for you.  It always shows in how you’re treated. It shows in how they speak to you, how they treat you when you’re in and out of their presence and in the presence of others. It’s shows in their faithfulness, loyalty, honesty, respect towards you (good or bad). It shows in willingness to effectively communicate with you. It shows in their willingness to share (giving and receiving) with you no matter what it is. It shows in their commitment to the relationship, and other things that are positive. In healthy and positive relationships people shouldn’t be strained, drained, or forced and it sure shouldn’t be one-sided.
