Freedom From People –

I do not understand as people why we feel the NEED to constantly apologize or desire for people to understand your view points, motives, stances etc. The people that are in your life ” BY NOW ” should be people who feed and nurture you ..MIND – BODY – SOUL – SPIRIT.

( MD Hester ) Make this the last time you attempt to clear things up or bring clarity to rumors or accusations concerning you. Especially when the people that are treating you like a “PLAGUE” have no desire to hear the truth nor restore you. Doing this, will restore your ability to get back to CARING about what God thinks about you instead of what people think.

This is witchcraft and idolatry at work.  To be FRANK with you….. this is really “how leaders” in CHURCHES and or CULTS brainwash people.  Of course, I am NOT talking in referring to to all churches falling to the snares of the devil – but you have to be careful of who YOU CALL your leader…..

The witchcraft controls your emotions and the person(s) become an idol because you care more about what they think of you than you care about being in right standards with God! So why not start NOW to  BREAK FREE IN JESUS NAME! …… Do it now before YOU CANT!

That Random “F – Word” Again….

Forgiving somebody means that you no longer hold anger or resentment toward a person who has offended or wronged you. Once you do this, you should resume the normal relationship you had with that person before the event occurred. Forgetting is, of course, when you no longer remember what happened. This is the act of “letting it go” or “moving on.” When you finally forget, you no longer associate the person with the offense.

Forgiving a person and forgetting that person did to you is the only way you can resume a normal relationship with that person. Being able to do this is also a way to build personal character. Nobody is perfect, after all, and there will eventually come a time when you wrong somebody else. You’ll want that person to forgive you and forget what you did when that time comes.

Forgiving and forgetting is important in most religions as well. For example, Christianity teaches that God will not forgive you for your sins if you cannot forgive people when they hurt you.

You may not forget that you were wounded, but not focusing on the wound can allow you to forget that the real wound is healing without you even realizing it.

The next time you look up you may recognize that INDEED you do have a SCAR to show that “it did happen” but it will no longer be an issue……… ( MATURITY ) ……it takes time but can be done.

Ministry

Ministry 101 –


image

Welp for starters……

“Ministry” is from the Greek word diakoneo, meaning “to serve” or douleuo, meaning “to serve as a slave.” In the New Testament, ministry is seen as service to God and to other people in His name. Jesus provided the pattern for Christian
ministry—He came, not to receive service, but to give it ( Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 13:1-17).

The Christian …….YEAH YOU!!!…..Should indeed minister by meeting people’s needs with love and humility on Christ‘s behalf ( Matthew 20:26; Mark 10:43; John 2:5,9; Acts 6:3; Romans 1:1; Galatians 1:10; Colossians 4:12). Christians are to minister to others out of their devotion to Christ and their love for others, whether the other people are believers or unbelievers. Ministry to others should be impartial and unconditional, always seeking to help others as Jesus would.

The ministry in our day has taken on more of a vocational meaning as we call pastors “ministers” to full-time service. Pastors do spend their lives in the ministry, they do minister to others, and they can rightly be designated as ministers, but pastors are SURELY by any chance…..not the only ones who are to be involved in ministry. From the early New Testament churches to the churches of our day, each Christian should be in the ministry of helping others ( Romans 12:3-8, 10-13; 2 Timothy 2:24-26).

The content of ministry seems to prioritize the ministering in spiritual things, not just practical things. Ministry should certainly place emphasis on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others so they can come to know Him and receive Him as personal Savior, go on to experience Him as Lord of their life, and go even further to know Christ as the essence of their Life (John 1:12; Colossians 2:6-7; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 3:8-10).

Ministry can, and should, include ministering to the physical, emotional, mental, vocational, and financial needs of others. Jesus did, and so should we! So the NEXT TIME that you see and or experience individuals trying to PROFIT for themselves…. you will know something is NOT right and what indeed what to pray for!!!

Relationships

Relationship Random Moment –


Marriage is purposeful in its design.

First marriage provides the companionship as we noticed earlier. Two lives are joined to form a union that can face most anything.

If they are united in their love for God they can face anything. Second, marriage was designed to propagate the human race. In a day when the home is being attacked, and marriage itself is being attacked, this purpose of marriage must be noticed.

The home is the foundation of our society and children brought into the union of man and woman, are the future of the world. Again God must be the focal point of both the couple and the family’s life.

A third purpose seen in marriage is to prevent immorality.

God’s word teaches us, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency” (1 Cor. 7:2 – 5).

Inspiration

Battles –


The greater the glory that is revealed in you, the greater the battle will become. The battle is designed for your victory, not for your defeat. The battle and the victory are designed to give you a testimony of the power of Christ. So, come and turn back the battle at the gate; do not run from the fight, but rather run to the fight. I declare that your enemies will be defeated, says the Lord. Behold My power as I demonstrate it to you and through you in these days.

Be alert to a weapon formed against you, My people. It is the temptation to give in to dissipation, which is to spend too much time and resources on physical pleasures. This is a subtle attack formed to separate you from My presence and to divert your attention to worldly things and issues of life.

Take the time to deliberately redirect your thoughts and energy to spiritual things–things that matter, says the Lord. 1 Peter 4:3-6 For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.See More
