Live by God’s Time
We have all grown up in a society where everything needs to be accomplished or received in a state of rush. Everyday something “fast” shows up- fast food, fast cash, etc. With the “fast” trend raging on in our society, we have naturally grown up to be impatient with a lot of things in life. As a result we have ended up wanting things “right now” rather than having to wait for it later.
On the other hand, when we open up our Bibles and read and understand the nature of God, we can easily notice that God’s perspective of time is way different than ours.
God who knows all things know what is best for us and when it is best for us. After all, He is our maker and the designer of our plan. He loves us as we are His children and as a Father, He provides us with the best there is. Knowing this about God, we need to come to a place where we can trust God completely, even with time and provision. The moment we can place our faith in Him, we will be able to live in patience and peace during the process of waiting.
If you were to examine your life today, would you say that you are living by God’s time or yours?

Read Zechariah 4:6 “ So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty." Have you ever been in that place? you know when you can feel your running on your own strength,steam etc.

When I study this scripture I knew right away in my heart and Spirit where I had gone wrong today, perhaps moaned, complained griped Your name it, no one is perfect only God is. As Gods people it’s easy to make the wrong decisions when we rely solely on ourselves. But God’s Spirit lives inside us to teach us how to be all we can be.

But only by His Spirit can we accomplish this. As children of God we’re always fitting into the wrong pillow case or putting our feet in the wrong shoes so to speak. In other words we constantly make decisions outside of God because we think we know best, but Zechariah 4:6 teaches us that we can’t come to any solid decision without first asking the Holy Spirit to help us and lead us. But that means surrendering.

It’s not as difficult as you think - it’s simple. Just depend on God and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. We do this by praying and engaging in a relationship with God, talk to Him, He isn’t a stranger, share all the concerns on your heart and Love Him above all else.

Remember that we’re always falling to pieces because our flesh is broke, but our Spirit isn’t on the inside it is strong and connected to our Heavenly Father. Read Hosea 1:7 “Yet I will show love to Judah; and I will save them—not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but I, the Lord their God, will save them.”

Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy - (Satan) anymore through the lies and the pain and hurt away and shut the door to those thoughts in your mind and throw away the key.

By the power of the Holy Spirit and not by our strength. I pray this encourages and uplifts you all. Have a fantastic #gpoy Wednesday and stay blessed.

OUR WORLD NEEDS A BIG HUG!
I have the greatest friends in the world who extend from those whom I know personally to those with whom I work with. Being a part of Walk the Same has been an incredible experience for me because I have come to know some amazingly beautiful people from all over the world and I can positively tell you right now that even though we may not be physically close to one another, we are definitely connected. 
But how?
Each of my lovely colleagues are different in their own beautiful ways. They come from different backgrounds, possess different personalities and they have so many unique stories that set them apart. Regardless of all these differences… yes! We are still connected. 
But how?
No matter the differences each of us may have, we all have something in common that connects us together and that is “love”. 
For each of us, we feel love differently. What I mean by that is if I were to go out on the street right now and ask a bunch of people to tell me what love means to them, it is very likely that I will get different responses. Although it is true that love has many faces and comes in different shapes, colors and sizes, I do not intend to explore the science behind this four letter word in this post., but rather my hope is to help you understand what Love truly means in the most purest of forms….

"Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth." - James 5:13-18

There is no such thing as being in the “wrong state of mind” to pray. The best thing for us is to pray every single day (easier said than done), regardless of how we are feeling. The difference between talking to God & talking to other people is that with God, you’re never too angry, too sad, too hurt, or too upset to talk to Him. No one on this earth can give you peace like He can. 

Of course, God does sometimes work through others as well. However, it’s important to weigh out how often we pray about something in comparison to how much we talk about it to other people. Other people will let us down every now and again, but God never will. 

Take a moment to reflect on what you may need prayer over. Have you prayed about it more than you have talked about it?

The Word of God Crushes Fear
Read: Isaiah 41:10

I happened to be researching phobias (categories of fear) on the internet a few days ago and I learned that there are hundreds of defined fears that exist in our society today. it is crazy to think how many kinds of fear there are. Nothing stops a person in his/her tracks more than fear does. It can even crumble the strongest person you know in your life. 

Fear really isn’t good of a thing for us to be dealing with. When fear strikes us, we tend to lose our ground and it ends up reducing our effectiveness on all aspects both physical and mental. The truth that we all must face though is that we all have some form of fear whether we like it or not. But if we are to progress in life and move forward, we need to wholly understand that it is only by ruling our fears that we can push ahead. But how can we conquer these fears that constantly seem to surround us from all directions? The answer is the Word of God.

In many instances across the Bible, we see God’s people calling out to Him and reflecting on His word and promises when they are faced in situations that involved fear. Taking an example out of them, let us use the weapon that God has given us, which is His word, against any fear that we may be struggling with. Let us be Christians who puts Jesus way ahead of our fears.

I am Satisfied
I find satisfaction in the Lord because His love and His blessings for me never end. He loves me with no measure and He always provides for me even in the times when things seem tough and impossible. My God has never failed anyone and I know He will never fail me now and forever. All praise and glory to His Name!

Be the Light
"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; or does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.… - Matthew 5:14-15
In the verse quoted above, Christ clearly tells us that as Christians, we are to go out and make Him known by living as He did. By living as Christ and walking in His ways, we allow others around us to see Christ work in our lives. Living by example is one of the many ways to show others how amazing and powerful our God is. 
Let us live by example and show the world that Christ lives to this day and is powerfully at work in our everyday lives.

Let me Hear Your Voice
“O you who dwell in the gardens, with companions listening for your voice; let me hear it.” + Song of Solomon 8:13
My sweet Lord Jesus remembers well the garden of Gethsemane, and although he has left that garden, he now dwells in the garden of his church: there heunbosoms himself to those who keep his blessed company. That voice of love with which he speaks to his beloved is more musical than the harps of heaven. There is a depth of melodious love within it which leaves all human music far behind.
Tens of thousands on earth, and millions above, are indulged with its harmonious accents. Some whom I well know, and whom I greatly envy, are at this moment hearkening to the beloved voice. O that I were a partaker of their joys! It is true some of these are poor, others bedridden, and some near the gates of death, but O my Lord, I would cheerfully starve with them, pine with them, or die with them, if I might but hear your voice.
Once I did hear it often, but I have grieved your Spirit. Return unto me in compassion, and once again say unto me, “I am your salvation.” No other voice can content me; I know your voice, and cannot be deceived by another, let me hear it, I pray you. I know not what you will say, neither do I make any condition, O my Beloved, do but let me hear you speak, and if it be a rebuke I will bless you for it. Perhaps to cleanse my dull ear may need an operation very grievous to the flesh, but let it cost what it may; I turn not from the one consuming desire, cause me to hear your voice.
Bore my ear afresh; pierce my ear with your harshest notes, only do not permit me to continue deaf to your calls. Tonight, Lord, grant your unworthy one his desire, for I am yours, and you have bought me with your blood. You have opened mine eye to see you, and the sight has saved me. Lord, open my ear. I have read your heart, now let me hear your lips.

Though we were born into sin, because of Christ dying on the cross - we are set free!! He now lives in us, and us in Him! Isn’t that just such a great thing to be reminded of? We should always be celebrating Christ’s victory for us every moment of everyday. Why? Because we can now live with Him everyday, and everyday is an awesome party for and with Jesus!
