A True Friend will always tell you the truth.
The Word of God tells us that to be a friend we must show ourselves friendly. When we care for people, or when we establish a relationship on any level, trust Must be one of the common denominators. When I open the door for a friendship, it is always with the hope of not being hurt or disappointed, but that doesn't mean that hurt or trying times won't enter the equation. However as the relationship grows, certain levels are ascertained on both sides. When the level of friendship is reached, we have come to an agreement of friendship. Back in the day some of us remember cutting our fingers and mingling our bloodie pinkies together "Friends forever" We became as sister and brother etc. We looked out for one another, your Mom was my Mom, your family became my family etc... so when you had static, I had static. We reached a level where we could tell one another the truth, even if it hurt your feelings, or went against the grain, we showed each other loyalty. We knew that "our friend loved us enough to tell us the truth". You respected that and loved them all the more for it.
Well my brothers and sisters, I am coming to you in truth today. I might even lose a few of you because of this. However I am constrained by the Gospel to tell you Truth. That WITHOUT HOLINESS NONE SHALL SEE THE LORD! There is no getting around it. We can say we confess that we are Christian or say we Love Jesus, but when our lifestyles don't add up /line up with the Word of God, We who habitually sin deceive OUR Selves. The worse... kind of deception is Self Deception. We can Justify the things we do, good, bad or indifferent, (satan comes to kill steal and destroy) but God has required us to walk in Holiness, we who aren't seeking the face of God on a daily basis, (Praying, Seeking Knocking on the door of Gods Heart) so we can fulfill His desires over our own, have missed the mark, we have missed the narrow way/street called straight. Lastly and Sadly, I see people that I grew up with, went to school, work, and church with Going to Hell if they don't examine themselves, and align or re-align themselves with the Word of God. You know if you are Faking it to Make it. But when the Music stops, and you are standing face to Face with God, what are you going to say? What excuse will you give? Chose YE This Day whom you will serve... There is a blood pack that was made to protect you from a life of eternal Damnation, but you have to Repent, turn to and Trust in the greatest friend you will ever have. He sticks closer than any other, He is the Way the Truth and the Life. Are you a friend of Gods today? There is a way that seems right unto man, and at the end of the road is destruction. Stop acting the part and purpose in your heart to be the part. Make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior today. You can become blood brothers with Him today. Thou your sins be as scarlet, He can make them White as Snow. We all have a past, and in that past, we were condemned to die, but God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son, that Who so ever... That's you and me would believe in Him, they would gain eternal life. Do You Have Eternal Life Today? Lets talk about it, Lets pray about... Inbox me if you like. But be very sure that the road you're on will lead you to the rock that is higher than you and I.

Lord Make me Over
That is my request today. That was in the teaching today by Prophet Laron Matthews today. "Lord make me over", so I can be your reflection in the world. When you look in the mirror, what do you see, who do you see? Do you see the labels that have been placed upon you by the world’s standards? Or do you see yourself as a child of righteousness, a Child of the King? How you see yourself determines just how far you will go in this life. Perception is everything. How you see yourself is the determining factor to your success. If you go through life thinking or walking in the labels pronounced over you, i.e. You will never be anything, you can’t have your own business, you can get your own home, you don't have good credit, you have no credit...you're ugly, fat, skinny, dumb...etc. the list can go on and on. If not being transformed from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of light. You are no longer bound to the labels of this world. You are transformed into the Kingdom of God. Make it a point to shake it off, all the negative images and labels that the world/enemy placed upon you. You can do all things through Jesus Christ who Strengthens You... If God be for you, who can be against you?
Think about how you've allowed people and circumstances to delay your walking into your promises because you allowed the opinions of others to derail you. satan comes but to kill steal and destroy. Shake off everything that is contrary to the word of God in your life today. If it doesn't line up in the word of God, shake it off and walk into your NEXT. Today determine in your heart that you are going to rise against labels in Jesus Name...

Oh Lord, I'm so grateful. I forgot to pray today, but you didn't forget to bless me and keep me from hurt harm and danger. I forgot to pray over my food, but you kept me from food poisoning. When I reached work late, I forgot to thank you for traveling mercies, yet you allowed me to reach my destination safely, and not get a pink slip. Wow Lord, I forgot to say thank you for my children reaching school safely and returning home safely, I didn't pray with my spouse, or let the...m know how much I love them, yet you allowed them to reach home so we could embrace and have some "Me Time", Thank you Lord. You look out for me even when you aren't in the forefront of my mind. I'm Grateful, that I have a God who watches out for me unconditionally. Forgive me for taking advantage of your unmerited grace and favor. I will do better Lord. Starting with this word of thankfulness.. again I am truly grateful. in Jesus name. Amen.

Lord I thank you for yet another day. What can I render or offer for all your benefits to me. The best thing I can give you is all of me. Today, I say Yes to you again. Help me to be a blessing to others, and not just to myself. Help me to have a heart that is after your own heart. Help me to follow your ways, and not man's ways. I want to please you Lord. As I continue to die to my flesh, my wants an desires, may I always remember that its all about the Kingdom. You have a p...urpose and plan for my life. May I seek you out daily to discover your will for my life, the Lord Why am I Here for my life. If I'm not trying to edify the Kingdom, let others know that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, witness, encourage, pray for, lay hands, raise the dead, then am falling short of what you asked your disciples to do. I say Yes Lord and I'm yours every day. Not just when its convenient or when I find myself in need. Yes Lord.

Its not how you start, but how you finish... When life hits, keep pressing forward, you aren't standing alone. God is with you. When the flesh wants to dominate, put it under subjection, What you feed shall live and what you starve will die. We have been given 2 choices in life. 1. To live 2. To die. Every day our actions denote our choices. Who we lend our members to, that's who we serve. If at the end of the day, you have not added something to the life of another, we have fallen short of our duties as a "Christian." Why do I say that, because spreading the love Jesus Christ died for is a sure sign that we are His disciples. We are no longer our own but purchased with a price. Make a difference in someone's life today. Tell someone Jesus Loves them, Remind them that God so loved the world tha he gave his only begotten Son.... (John 3:16) Tell someone that the wages of sin is death, but the Gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.

The more I come to know how flawed I am, The more I recognize the Goodness, Grace and Mercy of God. Trying to cross every T and dot every I is an impossible task for one to master independently. However through Jesus Christ, we have the opportunity to press towards the mark with each new day given. Its not over until God says its over. I'm living By His Grace and At His Mercy.

Before you miss your blessing, consider that there is always another perspective you don't see. That situation or person is a vehicle to helping you become a better you. (in the natural and spiritual). God doesn't waste anything... He said that All Things are working together for your good, so before you get offended, disgruntled or decide to close the door on a potential blessing, seek what the Lord, is doing in this season or concerning this matter. Reasons Seasons and Lifetimes rings true, people come into our lives for a purpose and some things happen for a reason. We have to discern the two and know how to compartmentalize them and utilize the experience to our maximum. Common sense to you might not be common sense to someone else. (sorry even in regards to spiritual matters) Therefore pause, seek the Lord, exercise humility and remember to extend grace. It can go a long way and make a tight situation more palatable for all parties concerned.
Things to Consider:
A. God is helping you develop a thicker skin
B. God wants to take you to another level.
C. God needs you to be more flexible (especially concerning ministry)
D. He wants you to broaden your horizons.
E. God is taking you out of your comfort zone to set you apart
E. Maybe you asked God for patience, etc
F. Pressure is always applied to a Diamond
That rubbing might seem as a hard place right now, but soon you will see your growth and elevation, after being rubbed and pressure has been applied. Soon you will see that diamond in the rough has begun to shine forth brightly for the world to see. Daily we are being pressed and processed into the likeness and image of our King of Kings. The next time someone or something rubs you the wrong way, hold your head up high and tell the Lord Thank You.

In my 24 years of experience of walking with the Lord, I've come to humbly realize that when one respects you or more so the God in you, there are certain things one just wont say or do. All because one recognizes that they are in the presence of a Holy God, and precious cargo is being transported from place to place within us. We are many members but one body. The Jesus in me loves the Jesus in you, its so easy... really means, we are one, we are on the same team, so to come against you would be self defeating.
I wont call you out of your name because I recognize that God is in you, and you are carrying precious cargo, I wont raise my hand to you because what I do to whom I consider the least, I'm doing unto the Lord you are carrying precious cargo. I wont talk to you just any kind of way because Jesus laid his life down for you. You are precious to God, and you are carrying precious cargo. I will have to give an account for my actions, you will have to five an acct for yours. The one who dwells in you and works through you is the same one who works in and through me. We are to always be mindful of this even in bad situations. People are watching and listening to what we do and say. We are not representing ourselves, we are representing Jesus the Christ, the Kingdom of God. satan comes not but to kill, steal and destroy families, friendships, associations, opportunities and relationships overall, because Iron sharpens Iron.
Imagine if we were to treat each other as carriers of precious cargo (God dwelling within us) What a difference we could make in this world. Judgment begins in the house of God. As we continually reflect who HE is, take on his character and attributes, the world will have to see the difference in us. They will be able to recognize that those who call on the name of the Lord aren't just speaking outwardly, but are indeed carrying precious cargo.
We should be more careful as to how we conduct ourselves especially to the household of faith, and what we do and say to one another. satan if allowed opportunity can make you look at someone Christ-like, and treat them as if they are not,. You then will feel justified to cuss and fuss them out. If satan can in a moment allow one to think that person is insignificant, the opportunity for attack is eminent. So when the Lord says the one who can hold their temper is greater than a ruler of a city, it speaks volumes.

There will come a time when Truth will reveal that there are no more excuses. When we don’t know how precious we are to God, we struggle through life, holding on to rumors, facts and evidences of our existence being unloved, unwanted, our being products of rape and incest, or our being victims of physical, verbal or emotional abuse,brought up on the other side of the tracks, coming from a broken home, raised in one parent households, being raised in the ghetto, exposed to tragedy, we grew up poor and or had poor role models, etc. The list can indeed go on and on.
Now being that these things might be true, by now we all know that life isn’t always fair. It rains on the just and unjust. However if you know who I AM, you then will discover that the fight has already been won, or the fight has already been fixed. All things work together for the good of them who are “The Called”. Your start was rocky or challenging, and you suffered many disappointments, but remember when you confessed me to be your Lord and Savior, I told you if you don’t suffer with me, you won’t reign with me. Salvation is free, but maintenance cost you everything. I want to use all of you. Make you a public display of how I can turn this into that. You’ve been purchased with a price, the clay doesn’t tell the Potter what to make it. Let me use your broken-ness your fragmented pieces. I just need you to trust me and run the race that has been set before you. To you, these things mentioned might be facts, or fiction. Barrier, blemishes or seemingly permanent fixtures or justifications to not overcome in your life,but remember because I overcame the world, you too can overcome this world. You can do all things through me. But without me, Ye can do Nothing. There is nothing new under the sun, and there are no excuses that can qualify as valid reasons as to why you wouldn’t or didn’t become all I've called you to be.
Christ said “I Am theWay, the Truth and the Life, Behold, I make all things new, you are a newcreature in Christ, I came to give you life, and for you to have life more abundantly. Is there anything too hard for me? Don’t let your temporary situations allow you to make permanent decisions that could delay or derail your destiny. For this world has an adversary that has no place in me. It’s not how one starts that makes the difference, but how one finishes in spite of all the obstacles challenges or differences they have been given. Greater is He that is within you, than he that is in the world. Because I live, you can live also. Live! You have No Excuse.

I've come to learn that life is truly too short. We all are just mist and vapor. Here today and gone today. Don't waste time carrying crosses or assignments that aren't yours. You attempt to help someone because you think with your emotional self and consider, What would Jesus Do? However, without consulting the God of your spiritual self, you jump into a situation based on this non scriptural premise. (WWJD- It sounds good, but its not entirely scriptural)
How do you know that you have crossed a line?
At first things seem fine and harmonious, (that's how the enemy is) and then suddenly, the mask comes off. After its too late to have a change of heart, after you have left your job, after finding out you cant tell anyone to leave your home after 30days, after your life has been turned upside down all because you made a fleshly/emotional decision. Now you are frustrated and tied in stitches because their burden has illegally become your burden along with what you were assigned to carry. You are literally succumbing the pressures of what you in the flesh agreed to take on. Men are to always pray.
The Lesson to be learned
Don't make another decision without consulting God and seeking his direction. Sometimes we jump in to help others and God wanted them to fight and get out of their cocoon on their own. (Just them and God) Sometimes we Hinder another's progress.
Oh What Peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pains we bare, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.... When we Know Better we Grow Better.
