"If God's brought you to it, he's prepared you for it" - If you've been following along for a while, you probably know I'm not a fan of one liners like this one. Catchy? Sure. Clear? Nope. - I think for a lot of people, this message may convey that God will prepare us for great and exciting things by building up in us our strengths. He'll help us improve our skills. He'll show us our talents and gifts. He'll prepare us by building us up in our abilities so that we are ready for our "call" or "purpose." - But honestly friends? Seasons that I have felt the most prepared by God are seasons through which he has brought me low. It's when he humbles me. When he shows me my weaknesses. When he proves to me the insufficiency of my gifts and talents. He prepares me by boldly an unapologetically showing me my absolute need for and dependency on Him. - Seasons I feel most prepared are the seasons in which I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I can offer very little, but my God can offer much. It's the seasons I am aware of my shortcomings, I can rejoice in my weakness, and I have surrendered all strength, that I truly feel prepared for what God has in store. - Please friends. Don't miss out on God's preparation by waiting for some self-esteem boosting breakthrough, or a supernatural increase in talent or ability. Humble yourself and surrender to God's plan for preparation: a decrease in pride and an increase in dependency. - Also no, this shirt has nothing to do with this post but I like it a lot so here it is.😂

Spiritual DNA- talks about the new nature that we receive from God when we are born again. Paul says we have an old nature called the old man (Eph:4:22). And then we put on a new man, that is, a new nature (Eph:4:24). : : When God adopts us into His family. He now lives in our DNA, in our blood, in our spirit. His blood in us is what operates to do His work in our flesh. We can teach salvation and the message of Christ, do His miracles, signs, and wonders. : : See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is who we are! Children of God(1 John 3:1). 1 Corinthians 6:17 declares, "But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him". This is Christ in me, the hope of glory (Col 1:27, 2 Pet 1:4). Your life is not meaningless and insignificant. You are not without a great purpose in this world. You are connected to a story that is much bigger, far more important, and thoroughly eternal. You have a royal past and a prophetic future, which means you can, and should, live powerfully in the present. : : Your name is recorded in the most valuable genealogy of all—God’s! Yes, you are a child of God. So go out today and live like it! : : To order for the full message, call +2348032756104 or send an email to powercityoffice@gmail.com : : : #Christian #christ #preacher #Jesus #bible #Drabeldamina #powercitycampus #faith #love #Jesuslover #Christianity #preach #gospel # Gospeltruth #truth #JesusChrist # Jesusmemes #Jesuscalling #Jesuslovesyou #love #shaderoom #pastors #life #bibleschool #doctrines #worship #spirit #nigeria #pastor
In today society we cannot limit the “tongue” to just an organ, but it also relates to our hands that writes, type, paint or sign. Whether it’s in social media or throughout our daily life. . People die because of something said. Tongues can be weapons of mass destruction, launching holocausts and wars. Tongues can also be the death of marriages, families, friendships, churches, careers, potentials, hopes, understanding, reputations, missionary efforts, and governments. . But in the flip side the tongue can also be the tree of life “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life but perverseness in it breaks the spirit” Proverbs 15:4 Tongues can make marriage sweet, families strong, and churches healthy. Tongues can give hope to the despairing, advance biblical understanding, and spread the gospel. . As you go throughout your life, and every time you wake up, ask yourself: What will come out of my tongue today? Is it life or Death? . a loving heart produces a gracious tongue. A faithful heart produces a truthful tongue. A peaceful heart produces a reconciling tongue. A trusting heart produces an encouraging tongue. So fill your heart with grace by soaking in your Bible. Soak in Matthew 5, or Romans 12, or 1 Corinthians 13, or Philippians 2. And be very careful taking in the words of death in the newspaper, the radio, the TV, or the blog. . Today, make your mouth “a fountain of life” (Proverbs 10:11). Be “slow to speak” in general (James 1:19). Encourage more than you critique. Seek opportunities to speak kind, tenderhearted words (Ephesians 4:32). Say something affectionate to a loved one at an unexpected time. Seek to only speak words that are “good for building up,” that “give grace to those who hear” (Ephesians 4:29).

Wanted to share the full devotional today from the “AS BOLD AS LIONS” e-mail list. My heart is to equip and encourage fellow believers in Christ. With these messages and the weekly blog, I believe God’s birthed something in me that I want others to hear and understand. If you haven’t signed up to be added to the email list, message me or click here: http://derekcharlesjohnson.com/as-bold-as-lions ————————————————— LIVING SACRIFICES CAN GET OFF THE ALTAR - devotional for Monday June 24th ————————————————— I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 ————————————————— An honest observation of our life in Christ is that our relationship and duty to Him is, at the end of the day, completely voluntary. The Holy Spirit calls us and burdens our hearts to recognize our sin and brokenness. But even in that, we can outright reject the pull of God; choosing instead to try and figure out salvation on our own. If we do choose to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, our will must continually be put under for the greater will of Christ. In other words, the flesh which is at war with the Spirit, must come under the authority of Christ in all matters. ————————————————— Romans 12:1 has always been an interesting verse for me because the idea of “living sacrifices” seems rather odd when you think about it. Every Old Testament sacrifice involved killing something; some kind of animal was brought before the altar and offered up to the Lord to atone for the Israel’s sin. Even Jesus was a sacrifice that died physically in order for us to have life spiritually. However, we recognize that although we are called as living sacrifices, something within us must still die. That part that must die is what we continually bring before the Lord: our sin and our desire to do things our own way, apart from God’s better plan. Yes we can get off the altar at any time. Yes we can choose to follow our own path. But in the end we miss out on so much more. God calls us to put to death the things that keep us from following Him.

Y'all, I get tired (ha! in real life). And some days, I find myself saying, "okay God, I need you to help me.....no, for real, I need you to handle this because I can't!" - We all have different situations going on in our lives that can get us tired (whether beautiful or not so lovely). - The goal is not to consume it by yourself. The goal is to find that quiet place-literally/figuratively, so that He can bring refreshness within. - P.S...Rest your mind because God has it under control—even if you can't see it YET. ------------- #jesuscalling #gritandgrace #graceupongrace #presentoverperfect  #dailydevotional   #faithblog #womenlivingwell #faithblogger #gritandgracewomen #bedeeplyrooted #chooselove #chooselight #boldbraveyou #bloomyellow #livefullyalive #soulscripts #shereadstruth #faithoverfear #wellwateredwomen #womenintheword #sheislight #christianblogger #gracemakers #lampandlight #ilovejesus #highvibe #spirituality #faithinspired #selfgrowth #wordbeforeworld
For a long time, I didn’t believe the gifts of prophecy and tongues had a place in the church. This has less to do with the fact that the gifts are unbiblical (as cessationists would argue) and more to do with the fact that I had never seen a church (or anyone) utilize these gifts in a biblical way. . Until a pastor at my church (@scottsdalebible ) handed me this book. . Paul urges us to desire prophecy over every other gift, because it confirms God’s existence to unbelievers (see 1 Cor. 2, 14-15). But HOW we use it & WHY we use it is tantamount. This book will dive into what prophecy is, what it is not, it’s role in the church, in prayer, and in every day life. It is written from a Reformed perspective, and even though I am decidedly *not* Calvinist, I *urge* you to read this book, because it is entirely *Biblical* in its approach to prophecy, and will bring clarity to cessationists and charismatics alike. . #simplybiblereads
