Have you ever wondered what people think of you? I’m sure you have. Though you probably say that you don’t care what others think. And I’m not asking if you care, but I’m asking if you have ever wondered? My curiosity has gotten the best of me lately, it seems that when people find out that I have written a book, that I maintain a blog, or that I am a Christian Life Coach in training they are somewhat surprised! My curiosity is in why are they so surprised? I must admit that mostly that has only happened since I have been deployed, but it is still a curious matter. So that’s when I begin to wonder, “what did they think of me before they found that out?” So maybe the question here is more appropriately, “who do they think I am?” When Jesus was traveling around Caesarea he asked his disciples, “Who do people say I am?” He knew that everyone had been talking about him, and he wanted to know what they were thinking and if they were receiving the message he was trying to deliver. The disciples told Jesus what the people were saying, and that they had never seen anyone like him, and did not know what to think of him. But Jesus was more concerned about those who were close to him, his disciples, and he then turned to them and said, “But who do you say I am?” Although those on the outside may be unsure as to who you are and what you represent, there should be no doubt with those who are close to you. The starting point of our faith is knowing who we say Jesus is. Once we are sure who he is, then we can know who we are in him! So maybe others on the outside are not sure who you are because they are not used to the Godly love and affection that you are capable of showing because you know who Jesus is. Just continue to show that love, and know with conviction who Jesus is and who you are in him. Those around you will eventually know too! Have a blessed day!
I know it has been a minute since I have actually taken the time out to write anything. Actually it has been longer than a minute…I guess like most people I became caught up in the situations that were surrounding me. But I had to take a moment and ask myself, “What is important to you?”
The answer was simple: GOD, living my life according to what he has destined and determined. So why does that seem so much easier said than done? Maybe because it is always much simpler to just do what you don’t have to put any thought into. Or even just to do what you feel society will easily except.
Maybe this isn’t the case for you, but it is certainly the case for me! Lately I have been going through the motions of my life and not really trying to put anything extra into it….there! I said it! So now what? Now is the time to truthfully answer: “What is important to you?” Now is the time to stop going through the motions and to actually bring life into my situation! So please take this as sort of an apology. Not just to you, but also to myself for my lack of writing. If pleasing GOD is important to you then everything and anything you can do in order to accomplish that is what you will be doing. With that said…I hope you are looking forward to my next post, and I appreciate all of your support! Thanks and Stay Blessed!
Do you even realize that the problems that we have with people are not flesh to flesh? OK what am I talking about? Well sometimes the conflicts we have with people are not exactly “personality conflicts”. Maybe that is an easier and more acceptable way to label it, but the truth is that sometimes it could just as well be conflicting spirits! I am going to start a short series on “Spiritual Warfare”. What I would like to do is explore exactly what that means and what it entails.
If you are new to Christ this may seem a little overwhelming and that’s understandable. Also know that if you are new to Christ this will quickly become a part of your life. Let me just say that once the enemy realizes that he no longer has any reign over your life, he becomes upset. The bible tells us in JOB that he roams the earth to and fro seeking whom he may devour! What does that mean to you? It means that he is waiting for you to leave the window cracked or the back door open! He is waiting for his opportunity when your guard is down so he may come in and distract you from the glory of the Lord and all of God’s promises!
So how do you keep that from happening? You prepare for spiritual warfare! You mount up! Place on your holy armor of God, and with your sword (the bible) in hand prepare for battle! Say the following out loud and with conviction: I have declared today a day of peace! This is the day that the LORD has made! I speak peace into my situation and believe that NO weapon formed against me shall prosper! Today has already been ordained by GOD and nothing will take place without HIS approval! The blood of Jesus will cover and protect me, and the GOD in me will reflect on the outside as HIS love pours in! I am Blessed! I am Anointed! I am Appointed! Amen!
