You Belongs to God!

You Belongs to God!

Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. – Ps. 100:3 nkjv

Knowing in our hearts we belong to God changes the choices we make regarding what belongs to us. It enables us to become better stewards of what God has entrusted to us. We don’t take His blessings for granted, but treasure them. This understanding strengthens our boundaries and helps us rest in our security in Christ.

What belongs to us must verify that we belong to the Lord. We are not our own; Jesus shed His blood on the cross for our redemption. Our bodies, talents, gifts, finances, and all we are and have are His. The Holy Spirit in us enables us to care for what is, above all, His, not ours, by reaffirming how precious we are in God’s eyes.

We are precious to God! He knows how to care for what belongs to Him, and He watches over us with love, protecting us with His power. Our careful and watchful stewardship of what He paid for is of utmost importance. As God’s property, we can evict every intruder in Jesus’ name! We are not blind, we can see; not alone or abandoned. We belong to God, and this belonging takes us, from glory to glory

What Are We Mindful Of?

What Are We Mindful Of?

But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.’ – Mat. 16:23 

The Greek word for mindful is phroneo, to exercise the mind; that is, entertain or have a sentiment or opinion; to be disposed in a certain direction, and to intensively interest ourselves in a matter. When we meditate upon what we see in the natural, we magnify its potential impact. If we over-think our ways, and the ways of others, we become fearful and quench the flow of the mind of Christ in our lives.

When Jesus rebuked the enemy working through Peter, He told him he was being mindful of the things of men, not of God. Our adversary tries to battle us in our thoughts the same way. What are we mindful of? The more we are mindful of the spiritual realm, the more we can walk victoriously in the natural realm. 

Our aim should always to be mindful of the things of God. Reading and speaking forth the Word of God helps us exercise our mind. Let’s press through until we are disposed to think toward the things of the Spirit, more than of the flesh. Our walk is by faith, not by sight. We do not focus too much on the human aspect, but on the spiritual, from glory to glory

God is Faithful!

God is Faithful!

By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. – Heb. 11:11

Sarah received the power to conceive because she counted God faithful in what He had promised her. We, too, receive the anointing to birth the promises of God as we recall His faithfulness. As we look back on how great the Lord has already moved in our lives, we rest assured He is the same today and will move in our lives in the same great and amazing manner.  

We might easily forget what God has done in our past. The obstacles we face today can be overwhelming. When the disciples realized they had only one loaf of bread in their boat, they started being fearful, forgetting the miracle of the multiplication of bread they had recently witnessed. They were looking at the lack of provision instead of looking at the provider who was with them: Jesus. 

Let’s keep our focus on the Lord’s presence in our lives. The moment we look to ourselves, or others, fear tries to quench our faith. We never expect disappointment when we depend on God’s faithfulness. We can depend on Him: His salvation, His healing, His provision, His deliverance, Him! When we recall how faithful God is, our faith is increased, from glory to glory!

The Body of Christ

The Body of Christ

… whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supply, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. – Eph. 4:16

Members of the Body of Christ, the Church, unite in faith and in spirit. One body. One team. We are the branches; Jesus Christ is the vine. Every joint supplies what benefits the whole. Everyone is valuable and believers should expect the best from each other. Our connection matters, strengthens, and empowers us in our walk.

Focusing on the Lord keeps us from paying attention to the other branches. Our place is to consider our own fruitfulness, not judge the lack we assume in others. To deprecate ourselves or others assaults the grace of God. We do not cut any branch down, but uphold and exhort those in need. We do not pick at other branches, but pick from them. United, we stand!

When in transition or transformation, we might sense a separation from other branches. A feeling of loneliness and disconnection. This might lead us to stay away from others, but that is when we are to reach for a closer union, starting with the Lord. It’s in Him we live and have our being; we remain strong in faith, hope, and love, from glory to glory!

Are We Blessing or Cursing?

Are We Blessing or Cursing?

Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. – James 3:10

The moment the words came out of my mouth, I knew they were not what I meant to say and could hurt my co-worker. It wasn’t the first time and wouldn’t be the last time I wasn’t able to moderate my tongue. In sorrow, I prayed, Lord, please forgive me, cancel the effect these words might have had. Help me tame my tongue, be quick to hear and slow to speak!  

One of the many ways to stir up, or quench, the manifestation of the Lord Jesus through our lives is through our words. The tongue is a little member that can quickly spread a big fire of blessing or cursing, of life or death. Our words bring either direction or destruction; contribution or contamination; encouragement or discouragement. With it, we lead others unknowingly. 

Are we blessing or cursing? Let’s bless our Lord and others with words, confess Jesus is Lord, and praise His holy name. Blessing, not cursing. As we pray in the spirit, worship and witness, we stir up the gift of God that is in us. As we surrender and submit ourselves to the Lord, He enables us to tame our tongue, from glory to glory!
