You can’t quit!

IMG_20170403_195044_801

 

*My IG Post @authorjordan1: God can give you messages through movies. Sometimes God will take you through the process that seems to be slower and tiring because it feels like that’s not the way to generate “fast” results. If you stick with the way he wants you to go and faint not, then the reward will be greater. It will be worth it!*

If you are going to be great, then there are certain tests that you must endure and pass. There is a certain amount of trials, tribulations and pain that you must push through. Do not become distracted and side track on whats happening for other people. You cannot compare yourself to everyone else, because not everyone else is going where you are going. There will be some people who you will have to leave behind. There are some old ways and thinking that you must destroy in order to get to the next level. Whatever you are enduring, it is all for a purpose. God has not forgotten about you. You don’t have to see or feel God in order to know that he is there. (Especially when things appear to not go your way). He’s teaching you how to be stronger and wiser.

He’s teaching you how to overcome your failures, struggles, disappointments and rejections until you won’t even flinch in the face of opposition. Waiting will build development, growth and improvement. Greatness cannot be rushed. You will reach a stage in life where the amount of suffering will not have any affect or impact on you continuing your walk. Sometimes the strongest thing that you can do is to keep walking in the midst of failure. Jog or crawl if you have to, but don’t give up. You cannot win if you give up. This fight and walk is not for everyone. See it not strange if you are on a narrow path. The Lord has chosen you to be different. It’s not easy and it’s challenging, but at the end it will be all worth it.

1 Peter 4:12-13

12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Stay True to Who you Are

orion-nebula-1056233

Hold on to your faith and patience. It will pay off in full measure. Time always helps us to grow and prepares us for what’s coming. Anything worth having will not come easy. Your sacrifices will make you appreciate and value the blessings that’s coming. There are so many people in this world who have everything yet, they have no joy, peace and happiness. Some are just going through the motions of life. They look alive on the outside but they are dead on inside. Keep walking through the process that God has for you. Don’t force your come up. There is so much greatness in you. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel bad just because they are in their season of opportunity.

There are some people with egos and low-key narcissist (with many insecurities) that will disguise themselves as if they are “humble” but will sow negative seeds of energy and words to discourage you. No one can curse what God has decided to bless. No one can kill what God wants alive.  They may be walking in their season of opportunity and reaping their harvest, but it may not be on the level on where God wants to take you. He that hath an ear, let him hear.

God uses everything for a purpose. Even when you run into negative energy and people, he will still use that to encourage you to do more. He will still use that for your good. Your steps are ordered. Your foundation will be strong and solid. There are some things that you must experience and go through before you receive what God has in store. Stay true to you. Through all the struggles, pressures, failures, tears and pain you must press through. What God has for you is for you. Don’t allow another person or situation to distract you from the greatness that God has poured in you. Greatness causes intimidation. Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

Seasons, Seasons, Seasons!

sunset-1485917There is something special about every season. Fall, winter, spring and summer! Enjoy whatever season you may be in your life. Sometimes depending on where you’re at, it may be easier said than done. Some seasons can be so dry, that it can feel as if God has forsaken you or has given up. No matter how mentally defeated or emotionally drained you may feel, God is not a man that shall lie. There is a reason for every season; whether we see it or not. Remain positive and strong. Be faithful at all times through every bit of the storm. (He will see to it that you will come through it with more power than before). Don’t rush your season to success, elevation or growth. It will arrive and happen on his time. While your waiting, continue to grow and get closer to him.

It is written in Matthew 25:21:His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord”.

It is also written in 1 Corinthians 2:9: “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him”.

Be encouraged! The best is still on the way no matter what you may face. Again, he is not a man that shall lie. Enjoy every season and cherish each moment 🙂

Hold on to your Faith: Faint Not

sunset-1402784

Hold on to your faith even when you cannot find it in anyone or anywhere else. Sometimes it may be the only thing you have to hold on to. It is written in 2 Corinthians 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight”.  It’s never about what’s happening around you, but what’s within you. The words faith and faint sound and almost look similar, but they have two different meanings. Faith means to believe while faint means to fall and to lose consciousness.

sea-storm-1468437

What storm has arose against you? Remember it’s not about what’s around you, but what’s within you. It is written in Matthew 8:23-27:

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

There is no need to worry about anything that is around you. As long as God is with you, You shall be protected and secure from the waves of life that tries to knock you down. Be faithful and be whole. Hold on to his power and strength that he has given you in the midst of the storm. Faint Not! 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JZXZEY4

He’s Still Going to Do it!

stock-illustration-3751722-leap-of-joy-in-the-mountains

No matter how long its been; no matter what trouble you have been through, always remember that the LORD is still going to do what he has promised. Don’t allow winds of discouragement to throw you off course. No matter how many times you have been knocked down, get back up! It is written in Proverbs 24:16: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief”.

All you need is a mustard size seed of faith. That dream will come to pass, even when you felt that you may have lost it all. Sometimes the LORD will take you through different routes to get there, but its all part of the process to become better and stronger. There will be times in where things won’t appear fair, but in due season it shall pay off. Your going to be more stronger and powerful more than you have ever been before. Psalms 22:2: “says,  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters”. Speak it into existence and write the vision to make it plain. Don’t give up on him and don’t give up on your faith, for you have come too far now. When God is planning on to bless you, no Devil in hell can stop it. Don’t faint, fall or stumble. He is going to still bless you beyond measure. Your going to come out with much more than what you came in with. Don’t be angry with him, he is still going to make it happen.

Pick up the word of God as your weapon to fight against whatever doubt or attack that may come against you. It is written in Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. Be anxious for nothing. Allow him to do things his way. No matter what you been through, he is still going to do it! Increase you power and strength by reading his word.

Dependable?

nice-1381075

The word dependable means trustworthy and reliable. It’s difficult in this time and age to put your trust into something or someone without being let down. Trust God as your rock and safety. If you are place in a situation in where others can mostly rely on you and not the other way around at times, it just means that God can trust you to handle more. It may appear as unfair or as a burden, but his plan is bigger than your emotions. He always prepares you for where you’re going. There is someone who is depending on you to survive, just as Joseph preserved his family and the land of Egypt from famine. Jesus came so that we may have life more abundantly.

It is written in Matthew 2:16: “Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men”.

Mankind needed his survival in order to live. Your assignment will require for someone to depend on your survival. Someone is counting on you to make it. You shall live and not die. He preserved Moses, Joshua, and David for his assignment; as so he will with you. That’s why you cannot become tired and weary. There is someone who is depending on your story to bring them out of their famine, bondage and persecution. He will give you power and strength to handle the pressure. All things come from him that is above.

The Power of No

stock-photo-44766292-mountain-landscape

The word no can be bold, direct and even uncomfortable. God’s no is protection. No matter how frustrated or impatient you are, look at it as an honor. You’re so special in his sight that he will run the risk of your pain to protect you. Believe or not, some people don’t have that privilege or that form of favor. For example, he will answer yes to some people’s prayer just to show them that it’s not what they wanted or thought. Why go through any unnecessary stress, pressure, or work? He loves you so much that he doesn’t want you to experience that. Think about a child who wants too much candy. Out of love, care and responsibility, their parents will tell them no, despite how much their feelings are hurt. God is the same way. It’s better to just listen and obey the voice of the LORD no matter what his answer is at the moment. His ways are higher than our ways and his thinking is better than our ways. A closed door is better than an open door that leads to destruction. His no’s are just as important as the yes. See it as no harm or strange thing. You are favored beyond measure! ♥
