RESET: I need one


I’m so direct, it is sometimes annoying!

I asked the Holy Ghost to lead me yesterday morning and He did.

One of the things that just makes steam come out of my head is when I ask God for help and He gives me instruction and I don’t want to listen anymore because the instruction seems difficult and painful to my flesh.

Hmmm

It will be painful. The answer to my question is to love my enemies. It’s not rocket science of course. It is just practicalizing it that seems like rocket science.

He’s obviously happy that I’m doing this. Now I have to work out the kinks of  loving my enemies while still working by faith. Obviously ignoring them doesn’t work anymore. It will have to be the kingdom response from my heart, not just the act.

It’s Luke 6 by the way.

27But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

Love your enemies and do good to them that hate you….

What is love?
God expects me to be patient, kind, humble, believe all things, not keep record of wrongs, forgive, reach out, get hurt, keep reaching out, not manipulate, not cuss out, not think dreadful thoughts or unkind thoughts, and important, the actions must be good all the time.

I think that’s just great, I can do that, I can do all things, awesome, I will practicalize it. I am Spirit after all and one with God, He can do it, I can do it too.

28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

This is so much harder for me but this is my assignment for February, I should be able to master it before February is up. I used to do it before. Praying for them is so much easier than blessing but I will do both day by day.

I’m not promising that I won’t get angry but I will get past the anger and bless and pray for them with the help of the Holy Ghost.

29And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.
No comment.
For this I will try…
Not quite sure how to interpret this.

30Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
This is so much harder to practice but I’m willing to try this in the month of March and February too, ha ha.

31And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

Easy. Treating others the way I want them to treat me is easy. I will do that.

32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
Love them, yes. Love them that don’t love you not really, it is loving those that hate you. I will do it by the grace of God that is upon my life. There’s nothing I can’t do by the help of the Holy Ghost.

34And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

Lend to those who can’t pay you back. Don’t lend with a reason in mind, that’s worldly thinking.

35But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Love your enemies. It’s the enemy that makes them your enemies anyway, no matter what they think.

36Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

Adults needs to hear it too. More important, let it be sincere.

Lord I am in need of good friends with the same interests as me. Send me one or two. No  drama pls, I just learned the meaning of shade, I am Christ (Gal 3:29) and I don’t intend to throw shade at any time. I believe it makes you a smaller person but that’s just me and my kingdom ideas.

image

Great words to say to yourself, your daughter, sister or friend because its the truth.

image

Be the voice at the end of a day that encourages you. Don’t cooperate with your naysayers, cooperate with God. You are who He says you are in Christ Jesus.

I speak to people all the time and I hear a negative trend, they want to admit they are bad, or fail and can’t ever do anything good, they are hesitant to agree with God that they are prayer warriors, or builders or enforcers.

I am committed to destroying the negative self image and helping people be on the path to discovering who they are in Christ. Most times people see you through the lens they have/had used to judge themselves. I hope and pray that I can make them see Christ as the Holy Ghost leads me.

God loves always and you can depend on that love, His love.

image

This quote just encourages me. I love to be in control. I can still be at rest knowing that God is in control of all things and He’s leading me.

image

I come across lies daily in life and in my mind.
Sometimes it’s the lies others say about you to help their purpose, the lies you say to yourself or that your actions show or the lies the enemy keeps trying to fill your mind with.

The bible is won in the mind. If you don’t read your bible you won’t know what the truth is. If you don’t speak the truth  out loud to yourself, it won’t get into your heart and challenge the lies contending for your destiny with you.

Speak the truth out loud to yourself, write it on your wall where you can see it, allow God’s Spirit help you war with prophecies and the word of God, follow His promptings, obey His word, stay aligned to God’s word and walk in love. Fight the lie with the truth, discover who you are in Christ and walk in it. The word of God is life to those who find them. Seek the Lord by reading His word, it will keep you safe and on righteous paths.

God gives beauty for ashes #Truth
If anything is making you feel shame, its not God. It may be your flesh or another’s flesh but know that it’s not God. He carried anything that could make you feel shame on the cross.

Anyone trying to shame you is expressing their brokenness to you unknowing. God comforts and strengthens and builds up.

Whatever breaks down or destroys is not God. It is an expression of the brokenness in man and only God makes whole. People can bring you to the Lord but can’t help you embrace Him, to embrace the Lord, you need to go to Him, cry out and say, Lord I need You. You can be in the midst of a people and still be connected to God individually. Pursue that individual connection. Work it. Consciously yield your will to the Lord. Let go. Let Him.

image

I’m a woman. Never a girl. I seek to build and strengthen always. My words are salted with grace. I don’t break down, I build up because the Holy Ghost resides in me, He is my generator, he starts my engine always. I am sold out to Jesus and His vision of bringing many sons to glory, what He does I will do through His help. He’s my helper always.

image

I’m not a fighter except I’m fighting for the truth. I have angels to fight for me always. They are released and empowered by heaven to take me to my destiny. They do the bidding of God and me. I am a heir of salvation so they are ministering spirits for me and do minister to me and mine, we are always helped and provided for by the resources of heaven. The demons flee always at our coming because he that gas seen us has seen the almighty (John).

Jehovah Shammah: God is always with us and that is why we win all our battles. The Lord fights for us, we only stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.

#Grace

People run away from it (Him). They are used to working for love and approval so find it difficult to accept His mercy because they believe their good works will scream louder than His mercy.

His mercy is the reason why my whisper is a shout in the realm of the Spirit.

Good works are not bad, but they are not the reason He loves you. He loves you because you are His.

If you know you are accepted for who you are, you won’t be so quick to try to disqualify others for bad works ( the way you see it). His love changed you. Not your desire to change. Without Him, you would be who you are today.

It is not tireless good that qualifies you for His kingdom, it is His love.

Knowing He has made you righteous empowers you to live righteous not for the accolades, the way you live now flows out of the righteous that Christ deposited in you when he took your sin on His body on the cross at Calvary.

You live right not for accolades but to manifest Christ in you, your hope of glory.

#IWillReread

Be merciful, not like you but like God is merciful.

This will be a pleasure to watch. I am interested in seeing how it all goes and what I learn in the process.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. Love is a tricky thing, but the more we’re willing it seems like the more grace God gives us to do it. Lovely reflection, Tessa 🙂 (just saw this)…was looking for your Blog to add to my blogroll 🙂
