Unforgiveness is destructive

A word of faith, a word of revelation from God’s Word to your heart, revealed by the Holy Spirit can change your life.

Now let’s think for a moment about this thought. Unforgiveness in the heart produces negative and destructive thoughts in the mind. The Bible tells us as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. I like to say, “and so he becomes!” What you think about and see in your mind comes to pass in time.

Unforgiveness is a violation of grace. If we allow unforgiveness to dwell in our hearts, this will produce these negative, destructive thoughts in our minds which will ultimately affect us in a negative way.

Maybe a root of bitterness will be formed in us. This in turn will affect our attitudes and be seen and felt by those around us. In addition to this, dwelling on these bitter thoughts of unforgiveness will produce chemicals of a destructive nature in us. As these are released into our system, our health will be affected in some way.

I dare you today to forgive those who may hav…

There is never any time but now

The Bible says that, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11!1). Now is the only time we have, so then we must act now. Do not wait for a change in the environment before you act, get a change of environment by action.

Act in faith NOW, faith is always in the NOW! It is never off in the far distant future. Hold to the one vision of what you want and act now. Smith Wigglesworth said, “Faith is an act,” it requires action.

Faith (the Bible says) without works is dead, being alone. We could say, “faith without corresponding actions is dead.” The time to act is now – there is never any time like the present. Take action now. You can act by faith upon the environment in which you are now, to cause yourself to be transferred to a better environment.

Do today’s work well

Now there’s a thought for the day. If we take care of the minutes and the hours, the days and weeks will take care of themselves. You can only act where you are now. There is never any time but NOW! You cannot act where you are not, you cannot act where you have been, and you cannot act where you are going to be. You can act only where you are.

Don’t bother as to whether yesterday’s work was done well or not. Don’t live in the mistakes of yesterday, just do today’s work well. Do not try to do tomorrow’s work today; there will be plenty of time to do it tomorrow, when you get to it.

Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34 (NKJV)

Do not wait for a change in circumstances before you act, but change your circumstances through action. If you want something you have never had, you will have to do something you have never done! SO act now by doing today’s work well and believe tha…

Team work makes the dream work

Behind every great leader there is a great team of committed individuals who are playing their part, sacrificing time and energy to propel their team and leader to success. No one ever accomplished anything great on their own. Through synergy and the combining of efforts and ideas, our strengths and resources are multiplied. If we make an acronym out of the word TEAM we can say, “Together Everyone Achieves More.”

The Bible speaks much on the power of unity. One can put a thousand to flight, and two ten thousand. Recruit like-minded people to be part of your team, or become a part of a team so together you can achieve a worthwhile dream.

How do you react?

“Outlook determines outcome, and attitude determines action”

David in the Bible who was called to be King, discovered that what was important was not the circumstances around him but the attitude within him. If he was to reach his God given goals and fulfil his destiny, then he was going to have to watch his attitude towards life. He was going to have to have some attitude checks along the way.

Check his attitude to see what happened to him, watch his action or reactions to others - how he would act when he was treated unfairly. Would he love, forgive, forget, and move forward, or would he retaliate, hold and bare grudges, allow unforgiveness in his heart? How would he react towards his superiors, his wife, family, friends and peers? Would he set an example for others to follow? How would he react when God judged him, corrected him and dealt with him? Would he repent and turn back to God making restitution where possible or would he get bitter, harden his heart towards God, go on in his…

Attitude ...

"Your attitude in life determines your altitude”.

If you want to fly high in life and achieve great things, then your attitude is the one all-important thing that will determine whether you will succeed or fail. In every plane there is an altitude gauge and an attitude gauge. The altitude gauge determines how high you are flying while the attitude gauge determines how you are flying in relation to the horizon. How are you flying today in relation to your horizon (your destination, your goal, your vision, your dream). Are you on track or have you drifted off course? Are you flying upside down or skewiff? Check your attitude.

I dare you right now to stop and have an attitude check. Do you have the right attitude to reach your dream your goal, your destination, or are you going to crash? Remember, “Your attitude in life determines whether you will reach your dreams."

To have friends, one must show themselves friendly

"Value others by valuing their point of view"
Dr Shaun Marler

Spend quality time with family and friends, especially your children. But remember, quality time will never make up for too little time. The Hebrew word for ‘children’ means builder of the family name. We should train up our children in the way we want them to go. Training involves spending time with them teaching them, mentoring them, showing how to do things (not just telling them). It means leading by example, being a role model for your children. It also requires understanding, putting yourself in their shoes and taking the time to listen. Listening requires patience and a humble attitude - we as people have often lost the art of listening.

We are so busy making our point or trying to get our point across, that we often don’t hear the other's point of view. We are just waiting for them to shut up so we can have our say. In doing this we haven’t respected the other person - they don’t feel valued by us, they d…

Heart felt prayer

"When you pray so that your heart will feel the emotions of your prayers, so will God's heart feel those prayers.”

Pray heart felt prayer, pray without ceasing, pray the Word. You must feel the passion in your prayers. In a intimate moment with a loved one as you share the passion or emotion of that moment, they (the other person) feel it and so do you. Your words become you, the essence of yourself, your life, energy, love and feelings are expressed in your own heart felt words. You become your words. God and His Word are one. Gods Word to me, is God in all His fullness to me. God does not speak idle words. He watches over His word to perform it. He has framed Himself in his words.

In the Beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

James 5v16b "The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]." (Amplified Bible)

You need to possess God!

"The more you possess God, the more you are made like Him!"
Jeanne Guyon, Grenoble, France (1685)

I love this statement by Jeanne Guyon. In life there are so many things that try to possess us, take our attention, fill our time - some good, others not so good. We must remember to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, God will then add to your life all the other things that people seek after. God wants to bless us and give us nice things to enjoy. He just doesn’t want those things coming before Him or taking over our lives. Some people are so possessed by material things, that these things control there lives.

Families are wrecked and relationships destroyed sometimes because someone has become so possessive of certain things that they put these things before everyone else in their lives, even their children or spouse. The Bible says that the love of money (not money, but the craving desire or love of it) is the root of all evil. Possess God so there is not room i…

If you can believe it, you can achieve it, but you must add steam to your dream.

The Bible tells us all things are possible to those who believe, but the Bible definition of "believe" is sometimes different to people's definitions. To believe here means have faith. We are to have faith in God and His ability, in us to brings things to pass. It means to entrust, to commit (to trust). It's not just a passive word, but rather an active word.

It is an action, faith is an act, "be doers of the Word, not hearers only!". Have confidence in God, that He is able to perform that which He has promised. You must do something - add some steam to your dream, be proactive, walk towards it, work towards it.

Do your part and let God do His - we do the possible and God does the impossible!

On Faith...

"Faith is the ability to see the invisible and believe the incredible, and that is what enables believers to receive the impossible.”

Hebrews 11v3 tells us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not yet seen.” God has great things in store for your life today, believe to see the goodness of God in the land of the living. Commit your ways to God; seek Him first everyday and He will make straight your path.

It wasn’t the nails that held Jesus to the cross. It was His love for you

John 3v16 tells us that "God so loved the whole world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life." As we celebrate this Easter with family and friends, let's remember to honour God and thank and praise Him for the awesome price He paid by going to the cross and giving His life to save us from the wrath to come, and ultimately eternal death in hell. Remember Jesus loves you and wants you to be with Him forever in paradice in His fathers Kingdom.

The Use of Knowledge

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
English Preacher (1834-1892)
