Serving In Love And The Power Of The Holy Spirit

Are you ministering to that person of authority in your life by your love and unwavering belief in God, or have you become too distracted by life’s challenges to bother?

You might think you don’t have the power, especially when you look at the person, but you do.  Matter of fact, the power is in you to do.

Granted a life free from distractions is a challenge on its own and I am not saying that the way to go is by your own strength.  Not at all.

But I firmly believe that where there are challenges, there are opportunities.  Opportunities for God to show His mighty powers and all it takes is your believing in Him.

See, on one hand you will have challenges and on the other hand is your God ready to show Himself strong and then, there is you.

That is why, working in partnership with the Holy Spirit and the position you take can have a life changing impact.

Therefore your position against life’s challenges is so very important and that’s what I would like to share with you today.

The King And You United By Faith

As a Christian, do you go about denying your faith in Jesus?

You don’t.  Ok.

My next question is:  How is it when your faith comes under vicious threats and opposition …by way of your finances, your health, your relationship, even your very life … you have such a hard time to keeping it together?

Yes, you call on the Lord but somehow you neither have the patience to wait nor the courage to be still.

Relax, I am not judging you.  I am speaking from experience and as I am led.

Right now you are overwhelmed with problems, distracted by fears and doubts and disconnected from God.  Your problems become your main focus.

As to why you cannot keep it together.  It begins with your misplaced…

Kingdom Commitment Conquers Rejection

Rejoice in the Lord, you who loves Him …you who fears the Lord … who delights greatly in His commandments.  Though you may seem insignificant by the world’s standard know this, by heavenly standard you are Jesus’ descendants upon the earth.

Therefore, you are mighty on the earth.

Believe it or not, you will not be happy when you allow the fear of rejection to shut down the calling which the Lord has on your life or to stand in the way of your preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God, or working in the Kingdom.

Besides, what would your life be without Jesus?

Recently I received three rejections …two of which were business transactions … within days of each other.  I was stunned.  I didn’t see them coming and I went away thinking, “God what was that about?”  Granted, they were nothing major … I had other options available but I admit, I still felt the impact of rejection.

And so, I prayed to the Lord to give me a clearer perspective so that it won’t rob me of my joy in Him.  Praise God I soon forgot about it and my joy and peace in the Lord remains.

However, a few days ago, it was impressed upon me to study Luke Chapter 4:14-30.

Today I would like to share with you how I’ve learnt to handle rejection the way Jesus did.

Get Off The Fence

Not deciding on which side of the fence you are sitting can definitely hurt your bottom line.

Can you afford to continue in this same position for the rest of your life?

Frankly, if from the outside it seems that everything is going well for you and you have it all together.  But within you are experiencing constant turmoil… you are unhappy, unfulfilled, fearful and more often than not miserable …

You need to get off the fence … this is not the place for a child of God.  But your decision to change is entirely yours.

Are you a participator or a spectator?

Rest and Arise Victorious

Rest in Jesus first …

Not in frustration, doubt and discouragement.

To rest the mind and body is a discipline which we all must learn and allow it to be a part of our lives.  For the most part many of us find the act of resting extremely irritating and challenging.  To tear ourselves away, physically and mentally, from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and to simply sit and do nothing.  Is simply unheard of for many of us.

But believers must practice to do this everyday.  For this is the secret to all growth.

This led me to think, how can I practice solitude in my life?
