It’s important to leave all old things behind. All former things have passed away. Remove all negative energy and distractions. If you fall, always get back up. The enemy’s plan is for you to get discouraged and to give up. Always remember that giving up is not an option. He will make a lie more believable and appealing than the truth. Sometimes the lie will appear as the truth, but that’s why you must hold on to God’s word. There will be many times in where it will look as if God has forsaken you, but that’s only lie. Hang on and hold on to God’s promises. Fight for your happiness, joy and peace ♥.
Allow him to strengthen you in your weakest moments. Don’t stop believing in the dreams and visions that he gave you just because it hasn’t came to past yet. He is not a man that shall lie. Allow him to restore your vision even if it has gotten a little blurry. Refresh and renew your mind. Have the fight and strength to get back up. Have the courage to keep going. Through your failure keep going. Through pain and rejection keep going. He is still with you. Your current reality does not determine where you will stay. Fight for your vision, dreams and goals. Enjoy the journey along the way. His plan is perfect although it won’t feel perfect. (Sometimes it will look crazy). He is not only testing your faith, but your patience. It will all pay off. Extreme measures equate to extreme blessings. Don’t wait for no one’s affirmation in order to keep going. It’s still going to work out for your good and his glory ♥♥.

It is written in Galatians 5:1: “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”. The word entangled means to be caught up or twisted in circumstances that are difficult to escape. When a spider trap it’s prey, it is entangled in a web waiting to be devoured. We must not be deceived or controlled by anything or anyone.
Whatever control us is what owns us. We can be entangled in something and not know it or be in denial. The Lord will always provide a way of escape out of your bondage. Do not follow the lust of the flesh. This can apply to any unclean area of our lives.
Galatians 5:16: says “This I say then, walk in the spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh”. Becoming untangled takes work and just like with anything it’s a process. Whatever you don’t rid of will get rid of you. Whatever you don’t deal with now will always come back later. The Lord will provide a way out. Sometimes you must go through what you have to. The process will be messy, but it will be all for his glory.
He will always give you ashes for beauty. Do not be entangled. His power is much greater than your circumstance and weaknesses. He has the power to make you free from anything that is holding you back. Cling on to his word. Sometimes we can hold our own selves internally back due to our past or present experiences.
It is written in Matthew 11:28: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. Let go of all your heavy burdens and cast all cares upon him. Allow him to remove any chains and strongholds that may have you entangled. He’s waiting 🙂
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD. Progress takes time. Everything is a process. Everything has a particular time and setting. Whenever you are in a process there are steps and transitions to getting where you want to be. Real change does not happen overnight or within 24 hours. Begin with small changes. If you can not walk in the steps, then crawl if you have to. (Remember everything is a process). After crawling, you may fall while your walking, but continue to get back up. Believe or not falling is a part of the process. When you are able to stand and walk, then you can jog. After jogging you will be able to finally run.
Real change is not smooth, but sometimes uncomfortable. Your pathway was designed for you to not only overcome, but to strive as the winner you are. Remove the negative thoughts and all forms of hindrance that’s fighting your progress to change. Everything including dreams, accomplishments, dating and etc. begins with a step. Take things one step at a time, real change is not overnight. It is written in Proverbs 4:12: “When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble“.
Keep all hope alive. Even if you have every reason to believe otherwise. There will always be some form of opposition to attack everything you believe. Your test help builds your faith, character, patience and strength. Keep your mind sharp and guard your heart. Block away all of the enemy’s attacks by praying. Before you leave your house, it’s important to pray so that you can set the foundation for the rest of the day. No matter what issues may arise, you are protected through the power of prayer. It’s a covering of protection. Put on the full armor of God and remember that the best is yet to come.
Always remember before you walk out the door this morning, God has everything taken care of. He is the provider of ALL your needs.
2 Timothy 1:7 says, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Do not subject to your flesh and worry. Worry can mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically drain you. It also limits who God is. Oh ye of so little faith. If he takes care of the birds and other living creatures on the face of the earth what makes you think that he will not take care of you? Cast all worry, fear and doubt out of your thinking. Be anxious for nothing, for he is the way, truth and life. Jesus is the cure for worry and his word is the prescription. Rejoice, for today is a new day and all the old things have faded away.
Make the most of your time and energy. Allow nothing to go waste. Make everything count by striving to be the best you can be. You are not in competition with anyone else other than yourself. Make a difference today by doing something out your comfort zone. Stretch further and beyond. There is nothing that you cannot do with his power and strength. Always, and I mean always be encouraged for the best is yet to come.

Discernment is very important to have in this day and age. It’s a precious gift from God. With so much chaos going on in the world, this is not a time to be sleep. We must be on guard at all times. Don’t allow your pride to deceive you in handling things your way. God always knows how to handle things better than we do. (That includes vengeance) Satan is very crafty. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. Always stay in prayer, even when you don’t feel like it or have to. Mathew 26:40-41 says, And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
This scripture is interesting because it always surprised me on how people can be sleeping in the presence of Jesus. Are you sleeping when God is calling you to pray, fast and obey? Are you sleeping when you hear his voice of instruction? Sleep can cause you to miss out on the biggest blessing that can come your way. Wake up and arise! For you must be prepared and ready for what’s on the way. His strength and power will keep you in perfect peace.
