Determination and Destiny

Proverbs 23:7, "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he"

What is holding you back from destiny?

Our own thoughts hold us captive, keeps us in bondage and enslaved to things that have absolutely nothing to do with our destiny. Having a negative sense of self-worth; not believing that we can, is a barrier to our destiny.

We have to agree with what God has said about us and get in alignment with His word. Our thoughts have to be surrendered to the divine power of the Holy Spirit.

We can't get to destiny if we are having an internal war with ourselves. Our own thoughts have to be replaced with God's thoughts. He called us blessed. He called us worthy. He called us fearfully and wonderfully made.

Be determined that no negative thought, no negative deed, no negative self-image will hinder you from all that God has for you.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I embrace what your word says about me today and everyday. Your word is true. Your word is life and light. I honor your word and I decree it over my life. In Jesus name. Amen.

Spiritual Process

Have you ever looked at someone whose life was void of spiritual fruit and determined that they were not saved?

There's a spiritual process that we go through and that process is salvation, sanctification, and justification. When we don't see fruit bearing in an individual's life it may mean that they just have not surrendered to the process of sanctification. Sanctification involves us yielding to the Holy Spirit and allowing the Spirit to purify us, teach us and guide us. Sanctification is where the old man dies off and our new nature reigns. It's not always salvation that people need, sometimes they just need to surrender and let their new nature rule.

Acts 4:12 tells us that Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." And then 1 Corinthians 6:11 says that we were washed, sanctified, and justified.

The blood of Jesus washed us, The Holy Spirit sanctified us, and God justified us.  Sanctification is where we are set apart from those who have not accepted Jesus. Because we have been set apart there should be a clear distinction between a child of God and one who has not accepted Jesus.

We have all received the great commission to lift Jesus up so that He can draw all men unto Himself. Pray for those whose lives may not be bearing the fruit of the Spirit. Witness to those who have admitted that they have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This assignment is not one that is reserved only for those who are Pastors, ordained ministers, or licensed chaplains. This assignment is for all who love Jesus and have accepted Him and His love for all of mankind.

Here's a prayer for today:

Heavenly Father, Thank you for saving me. Thank you for your shed blood on Calvary. It is because of you that I live, move, and have my being. Grant me wisdom to continue to yield to the power of the Holy Spirit and give me courage to witness to those who don't know you. May we all be saved, sanctified, and justified. In Jesus name. Amen

Are you a Go(o)d Girl?

Are you a Go(o)d Girl? Who is a Go(o)d Girl?

A Go(o)d Girl is any woman who loves God and lives her life in a way that will bring glory to Him.
She is an inspiration to other women in that she aligns her core values, leadership skills, and inner power with her spiritual & success goals so that she is helping to advance the kingdom's agenda.

She is spiritual yet she is wise on her practical application of spiritual principles. She encourages, equips, and empowers other women and she is eager to collaborate rather than compete with them. She understands that the person and the purpose must align in such a way that she is operating in excellence.

A Go(o)d Girl knows that happiness is not anything that she has to look for but rather something that she must be intentional about and create for herself. Her strength may be her sisters weakness but her weakness may be her sisters strength so she embraces community.

She is God's Girl so she is a Good Girl. The two co-exist.

She knows that she is not exempt from the trials of life but her unwavering faith has birthed the mantra, "You are Good, Girl because you are God's Girl."

Being an inspiration to other women

I sometimes think that the women empowerment movement is not taken as seriously as it should be. As a woman who has been faced with many giants and mountains, I feel that it is my divine responsibility to help other women find strength to climb their own mountains and slay the giants in their life. Luke 22:32 says, "when you are strengthened, then strengthen your brother." It is out of our own experiences that we are able to help the next person.

For many years a negative description has circulated about women. This description suggests that women are mean to one another, don't compliment each other, gossip about each other, tear each other down, and compete with each other. I really believe this is why the women empowerment movement begin. The intent was to start a viral commitment to do the opposite of what the negative description says of us.

Quiet Time To Pray

Prayer serves the purpose of enhancing and enriching your relationship with God, and the overall well-being of your life. Everyone needs a solid prayer strategy. Luke 18:1 (NIV), "Then Jesus told his disciples that they should always pray and not give up."

Prayer will be your strength during hard times. Prayer will be your source of inspiration, your encouragement to not give up. It does not matter if you don't see immediate manifestations of your prayers, I want you to continue to pray until you do.

When you pray you are speaking life into your situation and over yourself. It's through prayer that you learn to exercise your power and move mountains in your life. A consistent and diligent prayer life is like experiencing revival over and over again. Every time you get in the presence of God, a positive change will take place. You become more and more like Jesus.

Become a diligent prayer warrior. Father God is waiting to hear from you!

Always remember that no matter what, "You are Good Girl, because you are God's Girl."

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, you have made a way countless times and I just want to say thank you. I am thankful for all that you have done in my life. I am thankful for all of the times you forgave me without remembering it no more, for all of the ways that you love me without limits, for all of the people you have allowed to be a blessing to me, for all of the people you have allowed me to be a blessing to, for all of the possibilities that you have placed before me, and most of all for the ultimate sacrifice of your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank you and I love you. In Jesus name. Amen

What's your prayer strategy?Strategy? You might be saying. Yes, strategy. What plan do you have in place to manifest the things that you desire or the change that you wish to see? Anything that is to be accomplished requires a strategy and breakthroughs are no different. Prayer should not just be some routine thing that we do with the same routine words that we say. If you are aiming for something specific then you will need a strategy.
Strategy: A plan of action or policy designed to achieve a major or overall aim.
Whatever it is that you are aiming for or trying to achieve, will require strategy. If your aim is to be healed then your strategy should be to confess the word of God on healing and your prayer should be specific to healing. If you want to see someone delivered and set free then your strategy should be to confess what God has said about them (even when they mess up) and your prayer should be specific to them being delivered and living the abundant life that God has called them to live.

One of the ways that I create my strategy is through a prayer journal. I shared with you a few weeks ago about the benefits of prayer journaling. I have published a 21-day journal that is very strategic and will help you enhance your prayer life and see some breakthroughs.
Because we wanted to keep the price low, my team and I decided to make the physical copies available only in person. This will avoid anyone having to pay shipping and handling costs and the actual cost of the physical copies covers what we have to pay to have them printed. We do have digital copies available.You can download and print these and work through this for 21 days. I guarantee there will be a shift in your spirit and a breakthrough in your prayer life!

Here's the link to download your copy for only $2.99! Yes you read that right, $2.99! Don't put it off. The enemy right now is strategizing against you. What's your strategy?

The Goodness of God

Romans 2: 4 (NIV)
"Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?"

Goodness is one of the 9 fruit of the Spirit where there are personal characteristics that should be demonstrated in the life of every believer. No one can really teach you how to be good or how to exemplify goodness as it is a spiritual fruit that has to be grown and nurtured.
We hear lessons in church and bible study all of the time about how to be a good Christian, how to walk a good walk of faith but apart from God there is no goodness. In all of our shortcomings, in all of our unrighteousness, in all of our faults we need to hear about how good GOD is!

It's the goodness of God that leads us to repentance. Not our own goodness.
There is something about the goodness of God that makes a man, makes a woman want to do right.
His goodness makes us want to repent.
What does it mean to repent? The word teshuvah is from the Jewish language. It is translated to mean repentance which, in the Jewish language means turning back to God.

In Hebrew it means nacham, which means an emotion of regret.
So we understand that the goodness of God leads us back to Him. The goodness of God gives us an emotion of regret when we are not righteous.
This bible verse is basically telling us to not take God's kindness, His goodness for weakness ut let it lead us to repentance.
Let God's goodness turn us away from lying. Let it turn us away from backbiting. Let it turn us away from all things unholy.
And then....let your goodness draw others to Jesus Christ. We are living examples of the goodness of God and we should be living our lives in such a way that God is glorified and others are turning from their wicked ways and seeking His face.
