Your mouth can cause a lot of destruction if you don’t watch what you say. Psalm 141:3 says “Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.” If we look at the life of Jesus. He only did what He see the Father do. How many times do we do what the Father does or do we continue in our own wickedness. If partake of this world and become more like it, then we’ll speak like the world and therefor sow destruction. If we meditate on the word of God, day and night as the book of Joshua says, then we’ll speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Scripture also say that we must encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,”. But we can only do that if we are in tune with the Spirit of God. We’re called to speak life and the only way of doing that is hearing what the Father wants us to say.
Things would start to change if we start speaking life.
Let Your Spirit flow
Where ever we go
Sow we may sow
the fruit of righteousness
We need to acknowledge the work of the Holy Spirit in us. Sometimes we accredit it to ourselves and that is wrong. Where ever we go, we ought to sow the peace and righteousness of God. In times of need people look to those with faith and it is then when we must act. So let the Holy Spirit flow through you. Wherever you go, sow the fruit of righteousness.
Sometimes we leave no room for the Spirit to work. Not allowing Him to come and change us. We are mere human and want to control things that is happening around us. Scripture says that we can make our steps, but the Lord determines our steps.
As i’m sitting a question pops up “am I really allowing the Spirit to flow through me?” Because where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom and God’s love drives out all fear.
Where in our daily lifestyle do we make room for God’s plan?
Total surrender? Knowing really what it is about.
Let’s leave the door wide open and let God do His work.
How much space do we leave for God in our hearts. Do we say to Him “You can have that corner of my heart and I will fill the rest with other things”. Scripture says that Christ is in us. Therefor if your mind ought to be controlled by the Spirit, you ought to give control over to Him. Not to worry about anything that will happen.
In the book of 2 Corinthians 13:5, Paul speaks about the believer that needs to examine his or her heart. To see if you have faith in Christ. If you believe that Christ is in you. BUT he also writes that there is a possibility that we can fail the test by not believing that Christ lives in us. We can know Christ, but it doesn’t say that we believe that He lives in us.
Ephesians 3:17 talks about Christ that dwells in our hearts through us displaying our faith in Him. By our faith we are rooted and grounded in love which refers to being rooted in Christ. If we are rooted in Christ He is also rooted in us and there is no other things in our hearts than Him alone.
Lastly Revelation 3:20 speaks about we opening the door of our hearts to Christ. Now that may see simple but have we really given our whole heart to God? “I surrender all” That is quite a bold statement to make. Giving all to God means trusting in His works and not your own. Letting Him come and dine with us in our hearts means that we are contentment. Paul says in one of His letters that “godliness with contentment is great gain.” If we are content with Christ, we won’t allow other things to stain our hearts.
Scripture reference: Romans 8:10, 2 Corinthians 13:5, Ephesians 3:17, Revelation 3:20 and 1 Timothy 6:6
When you look into the mirror, you see a reflection of yourself. Look deeper and you see, inside yourself, how God sees you. Just imagine everyone looks at each other through the eyes of Christ. They look at themselves with the loving eyes of the Father. There won’t be such think as judging a person on their physical appearance.
Who’s mirror image are you? Reflecting yourself or reflecting the Creator who made you. The one who formed you in your mothers’ womb. Made in His image?! We can’t ask for much more. We are made in the image of God! wow!!! Looking at yourself in the mirror you ought to see a beautiful creation of Christ. One of a kind
Don’t look into the mirror and judge yourself saying “I’m to fat or to thin” or whatever the case might be. Christ made you and that is all that matters. Live in that thought!
Christ didn’t make you for no reason. He made you for a reason!
We are called to heirs of Christ. We’re not called to be slaves to sin. For who the Son sets free is free in did. You’re no longer a slave to sin, but a child of God. Accepted and loved by our heavenly Father. The same power that rose Christ from the dead lives inside of you, don’t forget that.
It is important in our daily lifestyle that we don’t focus on the sinful desires, but living by the Spirit focus on the things of the Spirit. What may that be? Simply by praying in the Spirit, talking to God or even resisting temptations when it comes your way.
Ya, I know we are not perfect human beings, but we can still strive towards living like Christ. We are more than conquers through Christ.
So let us live as “kings” and live out the gospel.
