Your Circle

Your Circle!

“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn –

The people you spend the most time with shape who you are. Some people will hold us back, while other propel us forward. You can’t hang out with the negative people and expect to have a positive life. Surround yourself with people you admire. According to research by social psychologist Dr. David McClelland of Harvard, “the people you habitually associate with determine as much as 95 percent of your success or failure in life.” So, ask yourself: Who do you spend the most time with? Who are the people you most admire? Are those two groups of people the same? From: Kelly Mezell

“ Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20 (NRSVCE)

“ For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope” Jeremiah 29:10-12 (NRSVCE)

Morning Line: Heart & Spirit Seeds

Morning Line: Heart & Spirit Seed!

Are the seeds you are planting full of life or weeds? The ground of your heart doesn’t know the difference. God created you with great potential and through Jesus Christ to reach it. By reading and studying Gods Word you are planting seeds in your life that can produce more than you could ever imagine. According to Mark chapter 4 your seed can produce from 30 to 100 fold and more.

What are you pondering on today Proverbs 23:7 says we move toward what we are thinking. If you don’t like what you see coming up focus on God’s Word and promises and you soon will see a new crop producing good fruit.

That is the miracle of faith and trust in God’s Word not to return void, His joy is to get it to you to use for him and give it back to you to use again. With plenty for you, meeting your supply and much more to supply others.

Treasure

Treasure

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, even if now for a little while you have had to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith—being more precious than gold that, though perishable, is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Although you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy,for you are receiving the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

“What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?….Who will separate us from the love of Christ?…..No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”Romans 8:31,35,37-39 (NRSVCE)

Past-Present-Future

Past-Present-Future

What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us.Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written…..                                      

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-39 (NRSVCE)

God’s Love in You in Christ Jesus at work in You.

Morning Line: Be Aware have Balance

Morning Line: Be Aware have Balance

“Don’t overlook….With God, one day is as good as a thousand years, a thousand years as a day. God isn’t late with his promise as some measure lateness. He’s restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesn’t want anyone lost. He’s giving grace and time to change.

But the Day of God’s Judgment will come….

Daily expect the Day of God, eager for its arrival… Interpret our Master’s patient restraint for what it is: salvation. Be aware of Irresponsible people who don’t know what they are talking about twisting every which way….the Scriptures destroying their selves as they do it….

Be on guard lest you lose your footing and get swept off your feet by these lawless and loose-talking teachers. Grow in grace and understanding of our Master and Savior, Jesus Christ”2 Peter 3:8-18 (MSG)

Always talk it through with someone of good character; the word says in

Proverbs 27:17 “..Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend”.

Pray, watch, and listen, God’s Word gives you a sure footing.

Morning Line: You’re Covered


Morning Line: Get up you’re Cover!

 “He rose up and went into the city.” Acts 14:20 NKJV

Going through a hard time, read these words: “…. having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead. However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city” (Acts:19-20 NKJV). Notice two phrases: “supposing him to be dead” and “he rose up.”  Stoned but not silenced; beaten but not defeated. “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Co 4:8-9 NKJV).” Imagine Satan standing over Paul like a referee standing over a fighter who’s on the mat. On the count of nine Paul gets up and says, “I may be down, but I’m not out!”                                                                      
Our LORD  does not grow tired or weary, giving strength to the weary and increasing the power of the weak….renewing their strength…to run and not grow weary, to walk and not be faint.  (Isaiah 40:28-31)

Morning Line: Quality not Quantity

Morning Line:  Quality not quantity

Matthew 6:7, “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]….”

Some of the most effective prayers are the shortest prayers. Jesus said, “Peace, be still,” and the wind and the waves ceased (Mark. 4:39). He said, “Lazarus, come forth,” and Lazarus came back from the dead (Jn. 11:43-44).
Today, there is a new emphasis on the quantity of prayer instead of the quality of prayer. Jesus never advocated long prayers, and there are only a few instances where Jesus prayed long prayers. This is not to say that communion with God is not important. It certainly is, but formal prayer is only one part of our communion with the Lord.
Psalm 5:1-2 uses the words “prayer” and “meditation” interchangeably. Therefore, communing with God through keeping your mind stayed on the things of the Lord is also prayer. There are also times in prayer when we need to be still and know that God is God (Ps. 46:10).
Many times we ask the Lord to speak to us, but He can’t get a word in “edge-wise.” We’re doing all the talking.

Are you Ready?

Are you Ready!

But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day. The Lord is not slow about his promise, as some think of slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and everything that is done on it will be disclosed.

 Since all these things are to be dissolved in this way, what sort of persons ought you to be in leading lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set ablaze and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire?”2 Peter 3:8-12 (NRSVCE)

Christ Jesus is the only doorway, ask Him into your heart as Lord today, We want you in the family.

Morning Line: Light Up

Morning Line: Light Up!

Psalm 119:104-105 “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”                                        

We all have stubbed our toe in the middle of the night because we didn’t light up, in other words put a lamp to our feet. We live in an ever darkening world and need the light of God’s Word guided by the “Holy Spirit” to light our path. As we study His word the light shines in helping us not to stumble and walk in His wisdom, power, and knowledge to overcome the darkness around us.                                                                                 

 John 1:5 “the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”           

 It doesn’t matter how dark your problem or need the light of God’s Word has your answer and path to overcome, meditating on it will light your way “ trust it”,

Light up, mount up, and take the day  in the light of God’s Word.

You’re a Winner!
