Wisdom & Opportunities

God’s wisdom is infinite, but our opportunities are finite. We need to regularly seek Godly wisdom in order to be able to effectively embrace the opportunities that come our way. Yes, God is merciful, but second chances are never guaranteed. So, Make the most of your opportunities. Grab hold of Godly wisdom, and have faith and believe that it will take you to places you’ve never dreamed possible.

Desires vs Idols

Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. (Psalms 37:4 NKJV)

I usually don’t share(at least not on The internet) what God is doing in me personally. But I think others can relate to this…

“God has promised to give us the desires of our heart; not the idols of our heart.” That’s the sentence that has been stirring in me this past week.
Personally, I have to be careful not to let the things I want in life become idols. How can you tell when your desire has become an idol? Is it all you can think about? Do you become worried and feel anxious when you think about NOT having that.” Do you become all consumed when planning or talking about it? If so; it’s probably an idol.
One thing God reminded me of, is that everything we can desire beside him is temporal. Careers, business plans, houses, cars, and relationships, while these are all good things to pursue; they are all temporal.
The only relationship that is eternal is our relationship with God. Everything we can want and need is found in seeking God first. It’s a fine line between an innocent desire and an idol. Lord Help Us.

So I Stand

So I stand.
Im the clay within Your Hand.
Though I may not understand;
You are with me, so I stand.

So I stand.
Finding peace in Your plan.
You establish my future; and show purpose in my past. You wash away my sin; as footprints vanish in the sand.
You are with me, so I stand.

So I stand.
Gifted each day another chance.
Blessed with the ability choose where I stand. You purify my desire. You sanctify my hands. You lead me in all truth.
You are with me, So I stand.

Are Your Bags Packed?

Maybe you’re applying for a new job. Maybe you’re asking for a raise or promotion. Whatever you are asking for it is important that you ask for it with confidence. It’s a given that prayer should always lead us. Believe me, no matter how bad you want something; you don’t want anything God doesn’t want for you.

That being said, It is equally as important that you “prepare” for what you want! I love the quote by Dr. Maya Angelou that says; “Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it”. I believe it is vital to purposely and intentionally prepare for your destination!

When you travel you prepare by packing your bags and taking the clothes you need for that specific environment. Its not really hard work. It just takes a little effort and research. Well, It’s the same with our goals! We need to “pack our bags” and get prepared for where we are going!
So, think about it; What actions are you taking to be ready for what you want? Have you prepared for where your going? Are your bags even packed?

“Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it” Go Get Ready, you’ve got places to go!

Happy Saturday

Glorify God by Waiting Expectantly

Ok, You prayed for it; and it still hasn’t shown up yet. It seems like you’ve been waiting forever. Waiting, waiting, and waiting. Well I believe that God is glorified not just in our waiting; but in HOW we are waiting.

Are we waiting in faith; expectantly, excitedly, and with anticipation? Or are we like little kids who don’t get “what we want” “when we want” and then mope and pout about it? What kind of faith is that?

God is glorified when we have the faith to say; “God I don’t know when, and I don’t know how. I can’t see it yet, but I KNOW YOU WILL COME THROUGH!”
God is glorified when we wake up and say; “This is the day The Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!”

So rejoice and be encouraged! Your prayers haven’t expired. This very second, this very hour, God is working out exactly what you prayed for! (And probably a little bit extra!)
Remember the biggest gifts take the longest to wrap!😊

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
(Ephesians 3:20, 21 NKJV)

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”
(John 15:7,8 NKJV)

Worth

If you lost all your money would you still have your worth? Do you live to make an impression? Or is your profession your only obsession?
Store up treasures in heaven. Live for more than what’s on earth. The things here are temporal; and should never define your worth.

Waiting On God

Waiting on God involves faith in God. It’s not standing stagnant. It’s not jumping at the first thing that looks good. It’s about being led. People say “God will provide for me” but they sit around doing nothing, and then cry when nothing happens! Yes, God will provide! God provides for the sparrows, but He doesn’t drop it in their nest! I believe that everything God has for us requires faith. Our faith can’t be true, active, alive or effective; without work!
