THE TROUBLE WITH EXPECTING TOO LITTLE

Some of us have lived, lasted and survived on too little for too long. Existing on crumbs or fumes instead of chasing the life that God planned for us.
 
Settling for less, expecting or accepting less than what we deserve is dangerous. We aren’t just living, we are fulfilling prophecy. Every decision allows or blocks what God planned for us: “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:16).
 
 
Put This In Your Spirit: The bible says, “For it is God who works in you to will and to act on behalf of His good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13). We close the door on God when we open the door to less than we deserve. 
 
We don’t have to get spooky but let’s get real. We don’t need to believe in God if we don’t believe that we were created for greatness (Psalm 17:8, Psalm 139:16, Jeremiah 29:11), that we were saved to leave a legacy by living a legacy (John 10:10).
 
Haven’t you been in a situation, a relationship that you couldn’t explain why but every day that you were in it, it felt like a bear was sitting on your chest? The longer you stayed in it, the heavier it felt. You actually started to feel depressed, sad and even distressed without knowing why. You were not grieving beloved, the Holy Spirit was grieving (Ephesians 4:30).
 
When we abandon God’s plans for our life, His will, the Holy Spirit Grieves. Our soul knows, and we know when our soul is aching that something is wrong, something is off, something is not right. Call it sixth sense or, call it woke or connected, but every Christian has a divine frequency that the Holy Spirit speaks on. The bible said it this way, “…The Holy Spirit is a witness to my conscience” (Romans 9:1).
 
If it causes us to walk away from God’s blueprint for our life, the Holy Spirit will disturb our conscience. The longer we keep doing whatever it is that is against God’s plans for our life, the more uncomfortable it becomes. Eventually, God will make settling or being on the wrong page unbearable.
 
Put This In Your Spirit: Continuing to settle for less, walking away from our promise denies Jesus (John 10:10). God said it’s like a Dog returning to his vomit (2 Peter 2:20-22). When we walk away from God’s will, the bible says: “They are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning” (2 Peter 2:20).
 
Haven’t you noticed whenever you’re out of order, nothing goes right, all hell breaks loose, and a feeling of joy dying starts to rise up?  God said it would — James 1:13-15.  Jesus was serious when He said we should pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). 
 
This is the key. Right now, you are going in the right direction. But sometimes we can be going in the right direction, “South,” but on the wrong road or with the wrong person, or with wrong thinking. With the wrong attitude or the wrong desire. With the wrong emotions or the wrong influences. You have to do right by you in order for God to prosper you.  
 
It’s time. From how you go through to who you go though with. From your love life to your best life. From emotions to thinking.  If it walks you away from, causes you to settle, act beneath or detours you from God’s plan for your destiny, make it right beloved. You know like I know, we don’t always do right the first time but when we know better, we have to do better (James 4:17) — Our life, our prophecy is on the line.
 
When you do right by you, you give God the ability to work through you to bless your life in ways that you never dreamed of.
 
Share and be blessed.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: THEY WERE SENT TO IRRITATE YOU

Sometimes the person that gets up under your skin is your beauty agent.  Nobody can irritate you like they can irritate you but have you noticed that you always grow from their irritation?
 
Every time they irritate you, you get better.  They are on assignment and most of the time they don’t even know it.  They are your sandpaper to smooth off your rough edges.  They don’t go along with everything you say, they don’t agree with your every opinion, they challenge what they don’t understand and they don’t care if you don’t like it.
 
Come on, you know when you have to cut somebody off you will.  You have, and you don’t have a problem doing it again except when it comes to them, you can’t.  You cannot get rid of them because you need them.  We all need somebody who challenges us to think better, the care better, to grow better but that person, despite their benefit to us, will feel like an irritant until we appreciate their purpose.  
 
Put This In Your Spirit: A pearl is beautiful when you see it in the store but did you know that a pearl gets its beauty from irritation?  Natural Pearls form when an irritant works its way into an oyster, mussel, or clam. As a defense mechanism, they release a fluid to coat the irritant. Layer upon layer of this coating, called ‘nacre’, is deposited until a beautiful pearl is formed.
 
If you are blessed enough, your irritant is also your mate.  If you get this, you might understand why the person you love to life is the same person who can irritate you the most.  You don’t know you love somebody to the moon and back until you have to love them even when you don’t like them. If you have a healthy irritant for a mate, thank God for them and let them do their work — irritation comes when irritation is necessary.
 
Your healthy irritant, whether they are your soul mate or your ride or die, is God’s gift to you.  You know they’re a healthy irritant because you know they don’t tell you anything wrong, they don’t tell your business, they don’t go along with your mess and they hold you accountable.  They don’t make you feel small, they lift you up, and you know they always want what’s best for you.
 
Put This In Your Spirit: The bible says, “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it” (Hebrews 12:11).  In other words, no pain, no gain.
 
Everybody does not have the will or the tolerance to handle their irritant.  But trust this, for every person you know who does not have a healthy irritant in their life to do the Lords disciplining, you know they go through more repeated cycles of hell than most.  Your irritant is your divine beauty agent sent to help you to think, shine and to be your best.
 
We glow better when we know better.  Thank God for your irritant!
 
Share and be blessed.

MIXING FAITH AND POLITICS CAN BE DANGEROUS

God is not a Democrat or a Republican and He did not ordain the donkey or the elephant to be over the church.
 

God did not tell us to use the government or governing authorities to make disciples. God said the governing authorities are a testament to our righteousness or confirmation of our rebelliousness: “…For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid…” (Romans 13:4).

Evangelical leaders have jumped into the political arena head first and unwisely aligned themselves with particular government officials for pseudo-religious reasons. Government is not for the Christians, it is for the people. Get that understood. Government is not the ministry of the church nor can it exclusively represent Christians. American citizens are not and do not have to be Christians. American citizenship is not a religion it is a right, a freedom that is protected by the constitution.

This may shock some of the holy rollers but gays and lesbians have rights under our constitution, and you do not have a right to use your religion to overturn the constitution. Jews, Muslims, agnostics and atheists have the same constitutional rights as Christians do and the Government is responsible for their rights just as they are any.

Point being, we need conscious and careful evangelical leadership speaking the truth and not misleading the body of Christ by promoting unbiblical allegiance to political parties or unintended purpose of government. We, Christians, must tend to our business and not outsource discipleship to government. We must acknowledge our fellow citizens of all colors, of all persuasions, of all religions and of all backgrounds who are protected by our constitution.

Leaders of faith and the faith community should always promote the cause of Christ and support policy that represents the interests of humanity, freedoms and equality but this reckless, blind support of the elephant vs. the donkey, republican vs. democrat, is insane, demonic and unholy. God is a righteous and Holy God, God is not a Democrat or a Republican. Leaders of faith must not get in bed with political parties at the peril of freedoms, or contrary to the bible, or to use government to go make disciples.
 
Share and be blessed.
