A clean Slate

We live in a world of do overs and fresh starts and we all love them.From a world view  We have mulligans, bankruptcy, divorce, we switch job, change cars and get in new relationship in order to start order. Most of these only give the allusion of a temporary high. 

As believer we have Jesus Christ who is the door to Life in the fathers arms. He welcomes us into a new start of life that begins with God forgiving us through the gift of salvation through Jesus. And then us forgiving others through the power of this same sacrifice through Christ. The fact is if we continue to hold unforgiveness in our hearts toward others we are not letting the work of Calvary have its perfect work in our hearts. 

Today is a good day to let go and let God have HIS way in our hearts. LETS forgive while we still have time. Just as we want to start over with a clean slate we should extend a clean slate to others as well

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭12‬ KJV)

Re-Position your faith.

Many times in this life we loose focus, we begin to direct our faith toward our jobs, friends, spouses and the things we posses. The meaning of life is no longer about pleasing God our focus becomes taking care of ourselves no matter the cost. We become addicted to things, drugs, sex, power, gossip, Facebook, Television and many other things, because when God is no longer the focus we try to fill the void with things. 

What if we truly allowed our hearts to rely and trust in and on God and we simply said Give us the day our daily bread (Matt6:11) we would move our faith from people, places and things to the King of kings and Lord of lords, life would be better for us. 

I am not saying you should not work or save but what I am saying is you should not be a slave (controlled by or under the authority) people,places and things. God should always be your source and the focus of your Faith. Time to re-position our Faith

Head and Heart

Proverbs 3:1 My son, forget not my law;But let thine heart keep my commandments:

Head knowledge. Many of us as believers have head knowledge when it comes to God. I mean we know a few scriptures and we go to church "Sometimes". 

What we need is for that knowledge to work its way down from the head and begin to operate in our hearts. It is not until our hearts begin to desire the will of God that we really begin to have relationship and fellowship with The Master. 

The hardest place to be is in a state where you have head knowledge (know a little scripture) but no heart knowledge( ability to walk about the scriptures that you know). This is a difficult place because you know right but can't get right so you are torn and you suffer. 

When we have our hearts remastered by The Master we begin to desire the things of God and we can live in the peace of God. 

Fall in love with Jesus and your life will have new meaning.

Don't give up

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ KJV) this scripture is often quoted but not normally walked out. Paul in his journeys had learned how to face good times and lean times know that no matter the situation he would prevail because he knew through Christ he could do all things.  You may be facing difficulties but believe that you can do all things through Christ. You may have lost a loved one but with Christ you will make it. Even if you feel suicidial don't end your life but know through Jesus Christ not only can you make it, you can also have a life filled with Joy. So in your lowest moments if you truly lean and depend on the Lord You will make it Because you can do All things through Jesus Christ that gives you strength.
