SPEAKING THINGS INTO EXISTENCE,  ( BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY):

 

Mark 11:22-24  ESV

And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts.

Romans 4:1-16:27  ESV

What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God.

NEVER GIVE UP “STAND STRONG AGAINST EVIL” (THE ENEMY)

“NEVER GIVE UP” GOD’S WAY ( Quotes ):

BELOW ARE A FEW FAMOUS QUOTES FROM “WORLD REKNOWN” INDIVIDUALS, THAT” DID NOT GIVE UP.  THEY STOOD UP STRONG FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVED IN”, THE GRACE OF GOD MADE IT TO BE SO. THESE INDIVIDUALS KNEW THAT ONE DAY MANY OTHERS WOULD BENEFIT FROM THEIR EFFORTS. TODAY, MANY PEOPLE HAVE ACQUIRED SUCCESS IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, FROM THE FINISHED WORKS OF THESE AND OTHER DEDICATED INDIVIDUALS. LET US BE MINDFUL TO “NEVER GIVE UP” FINISH YOUR COURSE, SO THAT GENERATIONS COMING CAN BE HELPED BY YOUR FINISHED WORKS.
 WHEN JESUS WAS ON THE CROSS AND HE CAME TO THE END OF HIS JOURNEY HERE ON EARTH. THIS BROUGHT HIM TO THE END OF HIS ASSIGNMENT FROM GOD ( HIS FATHER ). JESUS ANNOUNCED TO THE WORLD  (” IT IS FINISHED” ) ( JOHN 19:30 ).
 WE SHOULD FOLLOW THE STEPS OF JESUS.  GOD SAID HE WILL BE WITH US ALWAYS AND HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US. ( HEBREWS 13:12 ) SO BE OF GOOD COURAGE,( JOSHUA 1:6 ) FINISH YOUR COURSE AND LIVE A HAPPY AND BLESSED LIFE, IN JESUS NAME.
“Finding it tough. Never ever give up. Read these motivational never give up quotes:
Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world.”
JANE ADAMS )
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
You are never a looser until you quit trying.
Pray to God, sailor, but row for the shore.
Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
(Galatians 6:9 )” If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
It’s not the critic that counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or whether the doer of deeds could have done them better…The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust, and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and often comes up short again and again. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause. And who, if at best in the end, knows the triumph of higher treatment and high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his soul shall never be with those cold and timid ones, who know neither victory nor defeat.”           ( THEODORE ROOSEVELT )

“Don’t Quit When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up though the pace seems slow– You may succeed with another blow, Success is failure turned inside out– The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit– It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”  ( Edgar A. Guest )
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”( Winston Churchill )
“Look, these are desperate and chaotic times. History has left us no operating manual, no step-by-step instructions. Nothing is promised, nothing is guaranteed, everything we have ever fought for is in danger or already in ruins. We have to find our own way — maybe a new way. That can be scary, that can definitely be lonely. But there is a way in which we are not alone.

When we stand on principle — no matter how unpopular that principle may be, no matter how much it separates us from the crowd — and I mean principles like socialism, like racial and gender justice — we are sending a message to people we do not know — to people who are far away (as far as Chiapas or Nigeria perhaps) and to people who are not born yet. And that message is: You are not alone. We too have worked and dreamed for something better. That message is: Never give up.”  ( Barbara Ehrenreich ).
“The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have, thus far, so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” ( Abraham Lincoln, a powerful never give up attitude speech ).
“But, I can’t help it. Now I’m fighting cancer, everybody knows that. People ask me all the time about how you go through your life and how’s your day, and nothing is changed for me. As Dick said, I’m a very emotional and passionate man. I can’t help it. That’s being the son of Rocco and Angelina Valvano. It comes with the territory. We hug, we kiss, we love. When people say to me how do you get through life or each day, it’s the same thing. To me, there are three things we all should do every day.”

 

“We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. Number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.”

 

“DON’T GIVE UP, DON’T EVER GIVE UP.” That’s what I’m going to try to do every minute that I have left. I will thank God for the day and the moment I have. If you see me, smile and give me a hug. That’s important to me too. But try if you can to support, whether it’s AIDS or the cancer foundation, so that someone else might survive, might prosper and might actually be cured of this dreaded disease.”   ( Jim Valvano )

“RENEW YOUR MIND” AND BECOME* PROSPEROUS* IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE

 

              ” HAPPY  NEW  YEAR,  2 0 1 5″

  MAKE  2015, THE BEST YEAR EVER!!!  NOT ONLY FOR THIS YEAR, BUT FOR ALL THE YEARS TO COME.  READ THE ARTICLE BELOW AND FIND OUT HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THIS ,ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORDS { MAY THE BLESSINGS OF LOVE, PEACE , GOOD HEALTH, MONEY, JOBS, HAPPINESS AND MORE, COME TO YOU ALL NOW AND FOREVER, IN JESUS NAME.}

HOW CAN I RENEW MY MIND?

BELOW ARE STATEMENTS FROM OTHERS THAT HAVE FOUND THE POWERFUL SECRET OF HOW RENEWING YOUR MIND WORKS. THE RENEWAL  WHICH CAN GIVE YOU A NEW LIFE OF ”TRUTH AND FREEDOM ” THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE” ( John 8:32 ).  A NEW LIFE WITH THE MIND OF CHRIST AND HIS FEARLESS SPIRIT ”LIVING INSIDE YOU REMEMBER, THE DEVIL CANNOT DWELL WHERE THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS.

 THE DEVIL WILL HAVE TO FLEE FROM YOU. (James 4:7  “Resist the devil and he will flee” ( he’ll have to run away from you ) THERE IS POWER IN THE WORDS OF GOD, PLEASE PRACTICE USING THEM EVERYDAY.  THE BIBLE IS THE “MANUAL” FOR OUR LIVES, LEARN TO LIVE BY IT AND BECOME MORE THAN CONQURERORS !!! ( Romans 8:37 ):

The bible teaches us to renew the mind, but what do you do when flashbacks come, and you fail. How can I renew the mind, without a professional counselor?
                 Best Answer:  Renewing the mind is filling your mind with God’s truths. When you renew your mind, it helps you put on the armor of God. Satan is very real and wants to throw his fiery darts at you, which in your case might be the flashbacks you can experience. Satan loves to lie and accuse. I’m not sure what your flashbacks are, but if they are pass sins, than we know that God forgives all sins, so we know that is one of Satan’s lies. If we take every thought captive with the mind of Christ we can live free from the guilt, worry, and fear imposed on us from Satan and others.
The bible says we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities, things in high places, things unseen. We are not fighting against ourselves or others, we are fighting against things in the spiritual world, and there’s only one way to win the battle, that is to renew the mind with God’s word and to be filled with the SPIRIT, GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT.. We are to think about things that are pure and of good report, anything other than that is a lie from Satan, we are to live free lives, filled with love, peace, joy.
We were not given a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he!” The cool thing is when we renew our minds, we are more prepared for spiritual battle. We take those thoughts captive, and claim God’s truth, we are able to reisst Satan’s lies. guess what happens when we resist Satan’s lies, he flees from us. Ask God to fill you with the Spirit of TRUTH. if you ask and pray in the Spirit, you shall receive.

Renewing your mind means that you remind yourself daily what you are according to the word of God, thinking pure and a whole lot of oher things. For example, I am beautifully and wonderfull made. I am the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, more than conquers through jesus christ our lord. I’m blessed in my coming in and going out, and the like. When negativity comes, such as your past, it’s the enemy trying to discourage you, you must be quick to identify that, and continue on enouraging yourself in the lord. and let the devil know that the past is the past, and you are a new creature in jesus christ. That is how you renew your mind.
You can renew your mind by thinking positive and different then you have in the past. What the bible refers to is, to start thinking the way God wants us to think. Study his word, let his thoughts become your thoughts.
Have you ever payed close attention to who God choses to use?  backsliders, drug dealers, all that have found the good Lord.  Yes, we are to have a renewed mind but he can’t use us to help others if we were always perfect failure is the only way he can because through your experince you can teach someone else.
             ·          ·
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Jesus said: My words, they are spirit, they are  life. Also, Let the word of God dwell in you richly, in all spiritual understanding. We are in a spiritual battle, so put on the whole armor of God!  Eph 6:11-17, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Therefore, take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  God loved us, even when we were sinners, and shows this love to us, by providing a way for us, through his son JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD AND SAVIOR.
FAILURE IS PART OF THE PROCESS TO SUCCESS, JUST KEEP ON WORKING ON THE RENEWAL OF YOUR MIND, IT TAKES PRACTICE DAILY,SPEAK THE WORDS THAT JESUS TAUGHT US TO SPEAK, BUT DON’T GIVE UP, OR GET DISCOURAGED. YOU WILL HAVE  GOOD SUCCESS AND PROSPERITY IN YOUR LIFE.
  REMEMBER ,GOD WANTS THE BEST FOR US, HE LOVES US, HE CREATED US TO BE CHILDREN OF LIGHT NOT DARKNESS, DON’T LET THE DEVIL STEAL YOUR JOY. THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH ( Nehemiah 8:19 )  AND IT’S A WEAPON THAT DESTROYS SATAN AND HIS DEMONS.THEREFORE, BE OF GOOD CHEER, JESUS HAS OVERCOME SATAN AND THE WORLD ( John 16:33 ).

WHAT DOES HOW YOU FEEL, HAVE TO DO WITH DOING WHAT’S RIGHT ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD???

God’s Word vs. Your Feelings

by Joyce Meyer

Every day, we are faced with a decision: Will we respond to life’s circumstances according to God’s Word or will we react emotionally? The initial temptation is to react emotionally, but in every circumstance, it’s truly your decision.

Let’s examine three circumstances you’re going to have to face at some point in your life. I’ve also included some questions to ask yourself, which I encourage you to answer honestly. They will give you a good idea of how big a part your feelings play in these circumstances.

Circumstance #1: Change

Everything changes except God, and letting all the changes in our lives upset us won’t keep them from occurring. People change, circumstances change, our bodies change, our desires and passions change.

Most changes take place without our permission. But we can choose to adapt. Adapting doesn’t change the circumstances, but it does keep you living in peace and joy as you go through change.

First Things First

Our thoughts are the first thing we need to deal with during change because thoughts directly affect emotions. When circumstances change, make the transition mentally, and your emotions will be a lot easier to manage. If something changes that you are not ready for and did not choose, you will more than likely have a variety of emotions about it.

The Power of God’s Word
