I just had to post this song by William McDowell called The Cry. This song is so off the hook that I’m amazed that this man keeps bringing it all the time with new songs. Just when you thought the last songs his put together were amazing, His worship just keeps going to a new level. This song will shake you to the core and energize you if you feel like your struggling in your Faith. Let’s just remember that Faith isn’t a “feeling”, it’s a choice you make to trust and believe beyond what you know, what you see, and what you hear.
John 16:33 [Full Chapter]
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
It’s very easy to be distracted by rumors, by the whisperings of gossipers etc….but you have to learn to silence the riff raff and still your heart and know that God remains God no matter what people say. Your life’s mission should be to move and operate by FAITH. Remember what Faith is by meditating on this verse:
Hebrews 11:1 [Full Chapter]
[ By Faith We Understand ] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
There will be people assigned to you wanting to see you either fail or succeed in your life and it is so important that in every season when God wants to elevate you, you maintain your focus on Him who brought you to where you are. As far as I’m concerned, I am of the opinion that if God brought me to a place, only He can take me out of it. Do not put your faith in people that try to stir up the pot in your life to fill you with doubts and questions regarding your destiny if they can’t see the road God put you on.
Proverbs 3:5-6 [Full Chapter]
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Remember that when God gives you “talents”, it is for the purpose of expanding His Kingdom with the use of your gifts. If God entrusts you to be a steward in your workplace, then make sure you are using your talents to do good in all that you do. Do not have the “form of Godliness” in your conduct and then “deny it’s power”.
2 Timothy 3: 1-5 (NKJV) Perilous Times and Perilous Men 3 But know this, that in the last days [a]perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, [b]unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
Humility is the character we should embrace as part of our Christ-like attitude and identity. It is important to have self-control so that when people try to stir-up the pot in your life to shake your foundation of faith, you can stand strong and firm and not be moved by gossips, and the back-biting and jeering of those that secretly want to see you fail. God will put them in line and will show you the rewards of remaining in “right-standing” before Him. Don’t do as the World does and choose to operate like you are set-apart for His purpose and will on Earth as it is in Heaven.
I believe that in this season, God wants to elevate some people who are willing to mature in this area and will position those to be promoted when the understand that their destiny doesn’t rely on the opinions of others but rather on the PURPOSE of His will for our life, which is to prosper and be in good health as your soul prospers. When you are blessed, you can become blessed to be a blessing to others who need a dose of God’s touch in their lives that will bring about transformation and elevation as people renew the spirit of their minds to become more and more Christ-like in all they endeavour to do in this life. So people, make it a mission to do good in everything that you do, Amen! I pray that this song uplifts you today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
