#Mind-control

Image
Proverbs 23: 7 AMP “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he [in behaviour – one who manipulates]. He says to you, “Eat and Drink,” yet his heart is not with you [but it is begrudging the cost].” I used to say to people “I am going to bake cakes” and guess what? I am baking cakes, the thing about this, I said it and started baking. I enjoy baking and started checking Google for ideas. The more I learned about baking cakes the more I wanted to bake. I see something and like it and try it for myself. It is amazing how we can become single-minded and focused on something we have a passion for.
So do you think it is #mind-control? In a way, I think it might be because we really focus on a specific thing. Can you imagine focusing on important things in your life? Do you know what the results will be?
I have been learning to focus my mind on more positive things in life. It’s very difficult because I am negatively inclined can you believe that? I would see the bad first and later the good.

Unforgivenss gives Satan a foothold in your life!

Image
2 Corinthians 2: 10 – 11 AMP
“If you forgive anyone anything, I too forgive [that one]; and what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of [and with the approval of] Christ, to keep Satan from taking advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his schemes.”
I have been drawing near to the Lord my God, these past couple of weeks and I was reminded that I needed to deal with a root of bitterness. I was surprised when this thought came up. What bitterness? Then I started to reflect over my past. Yes, there are people I am still angry with and I am harbouring unforgiveness towards them. I have been praying about my state of mind and my attitude. I know that I should and must let go of these negative thoughts.
If I want the Holy Spirit to operate in my life, I have to forgive and let go of old hurts. I also realised that God isn't able to forgive me if I don’t forgive others. I decided to focus my time and engery on these old hurts. I have de…

Lord You, are the lifter of my head

Image
Psalm 3: 3 AMP
But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, my glory [and my honour], and the One who lifts my head.”
It seems when I let my guard down and I don’t put the whole armour of God on I struggle with depression, a spirit of heaviness, despair and discouragement. I didn’t put the shield of God’s protection over myself. Those days, I lose sight of what God is doing in my life and I feel totally alone and abandoned. Then the Spirit reminds me of God’s Word, He is the lifter my head.
Lord You, know and understand my mood swings, You know when I feel totally abandoned and without hope, those are the days You send me someone to cheer me up. I know and believe that You have a plan for my life, a future and I know You are in control over my life. In my hour of despair, I need to confirm and stand in agreement with Your Word. It will lift my spirit and my soul.
Lord You, know I am still practising staying positive, I am still working on my attitude and holding fast to Your word. Thank You, Lo…

Lord I want to know Your Will for my life.

Image
Ephesians 1: 9 AMP  “Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him,”
I am still learning to understand the Will of God in my own life. I feel that God’s will still remain a mystery in my own life. I know I am learning and growing spiritually each day.  There are times that I know things others don’t.
I believe that my confidence is growing and that I understand a couple of things others don’t. I feel a little happier and my attitude is better towards other. Now when I am uncertain and not sure what is going to happen, I feel stressed out.
Prayer
Lord, humbly I come into Your presence today, and I want to pray asking You to reveal Your purpose in my life. Please guide me and give me a purpose, hope and dignity to carry on.  I need direction and strength to get up and fight. I am asking this in the Holy Name of Jesus Chri…

#Driven

Image
Philippians 2: 3 – 5 NLT “don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”
I love to overcome challenges and its important to perform to the best of my abilities. I feel that it’s important to motivate myself to grow, stretch and learn all the time. I enjoy inspiring my friends and family.
It’s hard for me to sit back and just relax. I feel that there is something I can do and I must take action. I also forget that I’m supposed to have “the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” Carrying on all on my own pace thinking only of myself and forgetting to include others. I get carried away with my self-importance and before I know I feel all alone and abandoned.
I have been reflecting on this matter of being so “driven” and I wonder how it can contribute to my life? Nothing good, in life my family and fr…

Giving God the Glory!

Image
Acts 12: 23 AMP And at once an angel of the Lord struck him down because he did not give God the glory [and instead permitted himself to be worshipped], and he was eaten by worms and die [five days later].
Today I want to encourage you to bring praise and worship our Lord God. Jesus Christ died on the cross for both you and me. We have so many gifts and God is blessing each of our lives all the time. Today, I am grateful for a warm jacket, a job and food in my stomach. I can sit in my office and do my job without being afraid of any disaster coming my way. God sends His angels to protect each and every one of us.
Now I see that on an appointed day Herod decided to dress up in his royal robes and sit down on his throne. He was giving a speech to the people. All of a sudden the assembled people kept on shouting “It is the voice of a god and not of a man!”
Oh, how impressed this king must have felt because he did not speak out against the crowd telling them to stop, no he accepted their p…
