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.

Father Open our Eyes so that we may see.... and Follow Thee.
May we always be reminded that satan is always on his job. The question is (Believer) are you on yours? You have loved ones, co-workers, people in your communities who are watching you go back and forth to church, carrying your bible, wearing your collar, etc. but are you being an effective witness for Christ? Saying you are Christian doesn't make you one... Your Actions determine who and whose you are. Your taking on the attributes and Characteristics of Jesus Christ and walking in the Word of God tells others who you are. Its our applying the Word of God and offering our availability for God to use us as He wills that is Key. Not My Will Lord but Thy Will Be Done. Remember Teamwork, makes Gods dream work!

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.

I was reminded of this today. People are selfish and or inconsiderate by nature, Lord help me to remember that I'm called to a higher standard. That I am called to represent and reflect you at all times, to the best of my ability in season and out of season. Also Lord allow me to remember that when I don't hit the mark, your grace is there to help me get back in line.

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.

Gods Word, His opinion of me, and the impact He has made upon my life will always supersede what satan implies or what man would try to impress upon me. I stanch out every fiery dart the enemy has launched against me. I denounce your works, and who you send to perform your works. It won't work! The weapon might be formed, but the Word of God says it will not prosper. It is so in Jesus name.

The Word of God is the Breakfast of Champions! Don't forget to fortify your spirit. Your life depends upon it daily!

Don't let someone's spiritual blindness and or ignorance cause you to step out of Christ like character. Once actions are displayed or words are released, you cant get them back. Satan comes to Kill, Steel, and Destroy. Breathe, step back, remember who and whose you are, who will get the glory out of your next course of action (God or satan) exhale, breathe in slowly, then get back in line.
