New beginnings require new steps…

New beginnings require new steps to be taken that include redefining yourself and understanding what represents reality and what is an illusion. To empower yourself for your new beginning you need to overcome fear. In order to do that you have to be prepared and be willing to redefine yourself.

Ephesians 13-14 explains how you were marked with the seal and were promised the Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing your inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession.
Change will never occur if you think your thinking is negative, so maintaining a positive outlook based on God’s word will set your mind free of the fear of what might happen in a new and unfamiliar situation.

Stop all negative confessions, renew your thoughts so that your actions, emotions and personality will be transformed.

Prayer: May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened and may the revealed presence of God go with you all the days of your life. Amen.

Consider deeply the truth of God’s Word

We live our lives according to what our perception of what is true that is according to what we think is real. But if our perceptios are false and we fail to consider deeply the truth of God’s Word. We will be easily led astray by Satan’s counterfeits. Philippians 4:7 says that the peace of God guides our minds. God protects us this way as wrong thoughts are a breeding ground for Satan’s lies. As there is no truth in him. John 8:44

We are not immune to the Devil’s schemes Ephesians 6:11 in fact we must constantly be on our guard lest we are deceived just as Eve was by the serpent’s cunning and be led astray – 2 Cor 11:3.
Let the “Mind of Christ” be your greatest goal this year.

Prayer: Holy Spirit I surrender to Your leadership and tutelage this year. Direct me in all my aspirations and decisions, help me into all truths about my life this year in Jesus name.

Have a lovely day.

Deception in the human heart!

Of all things in the human heart, anger can be one of the most intense, destructive and unhealthy emotions that we can experience, and if not handled properly, it can have drastic life-changing consequences. How you act or react when provoked to anger determines how wise or foolish you are, whether you allow your impulses and emotions to dominate and eventually control you or you control them.

Anger is a powerful tool the devil uses against most christians, and its sad that he still uses the same weapon to shipwreck so many lives and destiny today.

Regardless of the reason for anger, the bible warns us severally about anger and how to deal with it.

Medidate on these scriptures.

Psalm 37:8- Refrain from anger and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself, it only tends to evil.

Ecclesiastics 7:9- Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the laps of fools.

Ephesians 4:26- Be angry and do not sin in your anger: do not let the sun go down on your wrath.

Proverbs 29:22- A man of wrath stirs up strife, and one given to anger causes much transgressions.

Medidate on these to Deal with Anger

Proverbs 14:16&17- A wise man feareth and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth and is confident. He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.

Proverbs 14:29- whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.

Proverbs 19-11- Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is GLORY to overlook an offense.

Be determined Not to be cut up in the devils web of anger this year by asking God to help you control your emotions and actions (1 John 5:19).
Have a blessed day.

Strengthen me in my inner man

The spirit of every man is what sustains him regardless of the onslaught from the enemy. Therefore exercise yourself in godliness. There are some attitude in our lives that hinder spiritual growth, such attitudes are complacency, procrastination, weariness and most times taking God for granted because of His love for us. You must put all these aside and take your place and stand in God seeking Him earnestly with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mouth.
Ephesians 3:16-20 prays for us.

Prayer: Lord strengthen me in my inner man, establish me in Your love, empower your church and help us to appreciate your love which passes all understanding. Allow Your power to work through me and enable to cooperate with Your Holy Spirit in the manifestation of Your power in Jesus name. Amen.
