God will speak to you.

God will speak to you in the most unusual ways and you will miss his voice if you are not paying attention. So many of us are praying to God for something, and yet we complain that we do not hear his voice or he is not answering us when he already has.

There is an old story about a man in a flood trapped on a roof. He trusted God will save him from drowning. As the waters continued to rise he kept his faith in God. A boat came offering to save him, the man declined saying that God will save him. Later a helicopter came by with a ladder and rope and he refused to be rescued saying God will save him. The flood waters eventually rose and the man drowned to death. When he arrived in heaven he asked God, why did you not save me or answer my payers? God replied, I sent you a boat and helicopter; you ignored my answers because I did not save you in the way you wanted me to.

We must stop looking for Gods answer in the way that we would answer it because we are not God. God will answer you in the way that he pleases and that is according to his will. Why won’t God answer the prayer in the way you want? Well do you give your children everything they want, when they want it and HOW they want it? No, and in the same way we are Gods children and he will answer you but not always how you want him to. Stop trying to find Gods answer in the way that you want him to answer, stay vigilant and keep seeking God and you will find his answer to your prayer.

 

Dating advice for Christian men

Has your heart been broken and shattered by past relationships and you can not seem to find the right person out there for you? You start to wonder if God even has someone for you and that he does not even have a companion for you. The truth is, a lot of us lack a good healthy relationship or even finding one because we are not doing it correctly.

First take stock of yourself. Men, imagine if you have a daughter and she is dating someone who is an exact replica of you; same personality, ambitions in life and same thoughts as you have. Would you be happy if she was dating a guy like you, your pride and joy in the arms of a guy who is the exact replica of you? Take stock of yourself and the type of man you are. Start there, be the man of God that you would want your future daughter to be with and you will start attracting that winner in your life.

Secondly, look for the right women in your life, don’t fall for the lustful deceptions of the harlot as that relationship will be unequally yoked and will be doomed to fail.

Proverbs 31 New Living Translation (NLT)

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
    but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.

Stop looking for the charmers and start looking for a women who fears the lord!

 

You need to be the man that attracts the Godly woman.

Pray for a proverbs 31 woman.

10 Reasons To Praise God

He is love

He contains all power

Finding God in your fears.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. 

As ordinary people, we become scared easily. Scared that we are not good enough, scared that we wont be able to pay our next bill and fear that we are to far from God. Fear is a hindrance in our life and causes us to try and do things on our own instead of relying on God. We start to fulfill our life with temporary pleasures that leave us more empty, instead of relying on God to give us joy and to fulfill us in a way that only he can.

Being fearful is saying that you don’t trust God to take care of you and protect you and to bring you through whatever trial it is that you may be going through. Do you remember when you were a little kid and when something scared you and you ran to your parents for protection? Once you were in their embrace you no longer felt fear; this is because you trust your parents to take care of you. When something in life scares us and we don’t trust our heavenly father to be with us, our fear will only stay and we will only be continuing a life of fear and hindrance.


2 Timothy 1:7

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.


When we have fear in our lives, and not power and self control, we are no longer living in the spirit of God. Put on the full armor of God and cast your fears onto him.


1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.


Give your fears to God, your anxiety and burdens.  You do this in the prayer closet, pray to him, call out to him and cry out his name. When I am fearful, I spend time with God, I worship him and I pray to him. Our God is a very approachable God; talk to him like you talk your friends. Tell God why your scared, why your doubtful and call out to him. The same God who picked you up and saved you is the same God that will squash you fears.


1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.


There is no fear in love and love casts out fear. Love your lord your God with all your heart. Pour out your love to him and ask him to show you his love. Once you are drowning in the love of God, then there is nothing to fear nor be afraid of.



Matthew 8:23-27

23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”



25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”

In the above story, Jesus’s disciples were afraid that they were going to drown and die. Then Jesus spoke a bone chilling statement that probably shook the disciples at their core. Jesus told them that they had little faith. They had little faith in their God to save them.
When we are in fear and are in trials, we must have faith that God will save us, have faith in who he is and do not doubt him. God is not going to leave you to die, he is going to mold you into his image. There is no reason to be afraid in this life when we are following Christ. We must trust in him and have Faith that he will carry us through, as he is God and we are not.

It is never to late.

You are never to far from the grace of God. Whatever it is that you have done, give it to Jesus and you will never come under condemnation.

It is never to late to start over. Have a blank page and write a new story. Do not carry the past on your shoulders; start over, regrets; get a rid of them. You are never to far from the grace of God. Whatever it is that you have done, give it to Jesus and you will never come under condemnation. Grab yourself a blank page and start over and give it all to Jesus because he gave it all to save you.

Never run away from God, give your heart to him throw up your white flag and surrender to him. Who distributes joy and sets the soul free? Who finds the lost and sets them free? You can find a real love, raise your hands and let Jesus be your savior. It is never to late to start over if you have ran away from grace, it is never to late start over. God will take you in his loving embrace with no condemnation.

When God says no

We first need to remember that God is God and we are not God and that his ways are above ours. He sees the future, we do not; he lays out the foundations of our life, yet our ways lead to destruction

Sometimes God will tell you no, he will decline your prayer request and say “Son, Daughter; my answer is no.” When this happens we are at a crossroads. We can either take offense to God and be angry or we can pursue after the will of God and find peace in his answer.


How do we find peace in the instance of God saying no? I mean, you prayed for God to get you that new job and then God slammed the door shut in your face, how are you supposed to be happy and find peace? We first need to remember that God is God and we are not God and that his ways are above ours. He sees the future, we do not; he lays out the foundations of our life, yet our ways lead to destruction! Why does God have to say yes, if that is the case we are God and he is not. See if your God never disagrees with you then your worshiping yourself.


God sees into the future while we do not, God may see that job leading you into self idol worship while you do not. God may see a different job for you where you get to witness to others yet you do not see this in the future. God says ask and it will be given unto you as long as what you are asking for is within his will. So if God says NO to you; then we are to know that what we prayed for was not in his will. He has something much better for you.


Do not take offense to God when he tells you no. Years ago I wanted to be apart of a youth leadership team. God told me no and to leave that church. I was flabbergasted at this. Come to find out, the youth group turned into petty fights and left God; God wanted to remove me from that situation before it even happened to me. God knows what is best. Put your trust in him and remember God is not your fairy God mother giving you all your wants. He will give you all your NEEDS not wants. He is for you not against you.

The Great Unknown

Often times I ask myself, “Jessee, are you living for God to your fullest potential? Are you letting God lead you into the great unknown asking God for the impossible or am I just living a comfortable do nothing christian walk” Another way I can put it is, am I only willing to serve God where I am comfortable? Am I chasing the dreams that God put in my heart or am I to afraid of the unknown and give up.


While reading a devotional that pastor Steven Furtick wrote, something stuck out to me on what he wrote, “If your not asking God to do the impossible then your missing out on the best parts of your christian walk.” When your in the word of God reading about the great men that God used; Moses, Noah, John the Baptist etc. how often do you find yourself having the same level of faith that the men of old had. If God said to you that you will split the red sea to save his people; would you believe that you could do that or would you back away because such a great task is out of your comfort zone.


In my faith I am finding that I am afraid of the great unknown. I have all these dreams and hopes that God has instilled on my heart to do and the great unknown is; will I ever be able to do what God has called me to do or will I fail and fall short?


Ask God to perform the impossible in your life. If your struggling in life and you do not think you will ever achieve what God has called you to do; call out to God to perform a miracle. One of the greatest stories in the bible was when Joshua was at war. He knew that day he needed to defeat the enemy but he knew if the sun were to set; then the enemy would escape. Joshua prayed to God for the impossible and God allowed the sun to not set. It was the prayer that made the sun stand still. I earnestly believe God can still perform those very same miracles in your and my own life.


They say, with the faith of a mustard seed, that you can move a mountain and I want a faith like that.
