Being Great Through Christ

I’m up this morning walking in the newness of life that Christ gave me. Shedding the skin of sin and walking blameless. I have been given the mindset of Christ and a new attitude. My will is being broken and I’m moving in obedience. I have compassion, kindness, humility, and love. I have gentleness, patience, endurance, self control, and discipline. I’m selfless. I think if only pleasing Christ and living a great life through Him. Hearing “well done” is my reason for remaining in Him. So this peace of Christ that rules in my heart comes from knowing that God won’t let me fall. Because I am His child, His Word will manifest itself in my life. That Word will dwell richly in my life. It will flow in every area and every way. Especially when it comes to showing the love of Christ in all I do. Yes all. I am striving to stay out of my old selfish ways and live freely and richly in the newness of Christ.


Colossians 3

Peace and Patience

Peace and patience have this in common… They are both from God. Getting strength to do all things will take them working together. Peace is given when you think on things that are noble, true, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. Patience is given when you go through a trial or storm. You will have the patience within the storm as you are pulling on peace. So now that you are thinking heavenly thoughts, you have the strength to do all things through Christ. So if you are having trouble making it through a rough path in life, it may be due to what you are thinking about and pulling on. If you’re depending on yourself to bring you through, you are going to remain in the situation. Pull on God and remain content even in the season you are in. He will bring you through with more power, grace, and strength.

Ephesians 6:18-19

Obedience Be Like…

You gotta be tired of living in your own will, right? Come down the road that leads to promise. Because your disobedience is keeping you from the finely paved road of milk and honey. No obedience means prolonged blessings. Because God can’t bless your will. So why are you still walking with my twice removed cousin. You rather be attached to the curse than the blessing? You rather live in struggle than the land of abundance? You rather walk in darkness than in the light of the Lamb? You rather be the boss than to humble yourself before the King? That’s lame. It really is. But you know what’s even more lame? You knowing the outcome of your disobedience and still doing things in your own will.


Joshua 1.

When God Reminds You of His Promises

When God reminds you of His promises, He is reminding you to hang on. He is reminding you to keep going. You will suffer, but know that these present afflictions are not to be compared to the glory ahead. God brings you into remembrance of what He promised so you can continue to set your mind on things above. You may get distracted, but He will gently get you back on the road leading to His wonderful gifts. When God reminds you of His promises, you can see just how much He wants to bless you. So continue to speak Gods Word and apply it to your life. Don’t give up hope. Because faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Hold on to God’s promises because they are all yes and amen. So this means they are guaranteed.


“1-Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

6-But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:1, 6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭KJV‬

Hebrews 11 Builds Me Up

Let’s face it. If we look around this world or even our personal lives , it may be hard to focus on the good because the storms of life may cloud our minds. But as I read through Hebrews 11, I am encouraged to keep my eyes to the hills from which comes my help. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. ( Psalm 121:1-2). I am encouraged to give God faith and trust that He is God. I am encouraged to consider Him faithful. Because I know that to the faithful He shows Himself faithful (Psalm 18:25). I will press towards the mark that is set for the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14). I am going to move forward in faith and follow Christ even when I don’t know or see the entire plan (Hebrews 11:8-9). And remain inspired through His Word because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God ( Romans 10:17).

A Romans 8 Mindset

I’m living life through the Spirit of Christ. Running this race without a doubt. I know that I am not bound by the law of sin. I am no longer condemned. I live freely through Christ. Accepting new life. I’ll live abundantly. I’ll live purposefully. I am free from the sin that weighed me down. Jesus conquered that when He shed His blood on the cross. Every drop of blood was for me. He died and rose on the third day so that I could live. He descended to Hell and conquered it too. He then ascended to heaven to sit on the right hand of God. He made life possible. His Spirit offers life, peace, hope, joy, and every promise in His Word. So I will continue to live by His Spirit that is greater than anything in this world.


Romans 8:1-17

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “ Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Ways of Wisdom

  • Wisdom walks in prudence. Thinking thoughtfully through our daily lives.
  • Wisdom was used in the process of God creating the world. How beautiful would our personal lives be if we walked in wisdom as well?
  • Wisdom travels with riches and honor. They are a group of best friends. Attach yourself to wisdom and you will be attached to riches and honor too.
  • Listen to wisdom as it cry’s out at the gate (start) of your journey and wisdom will continue to speak and guide you, giving you life. Refuse it and death will come.

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭8:1-36‬ ‭NIV
“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? At the highest point along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gate leading into the city, at the entrance, she cries aloud: “To you, O people, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind. You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, set your hearts on it. Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right. My mouth speaks what is true, for my lips detest wickedness. All the words of my mouth are just; none of them is crooked or perverse. To the discerning all of them are right; they are upright to those who have found knowledge. Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have insight, I have power. By me kings reign and rulers issue decrees that are just; by me princes govern, and nobles—all who rule on earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me and making their treasuries full. “The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,, before his deeds of old; I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be. When there were no watery depths, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water; before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, before he made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth. I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth. Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind. “Now then, my children, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not disregard it. Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord. But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.””
