FINDING YOUR PURPOSE(S)…

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
THE BEBLESSTIFIED.COM THREE P’s of PURPOSE…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1476804412335.jpg ARE YOU WALKING IN YOUR PURPOSE?

John 12:27 (NKJV)
“Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But FOR THIS PURPOSE I came to this hour.

There is nothing more powerful than a person who is certain of his or her purpose, and relentlessly working towards it. But, I hear so many people say,

“I don’t know my purpose!

or ask,

“How do I know I’m walking in my purpose?”


 It is clear that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ knew His purpose. How else could His human side endure the humiliation, shame and pain of the cross. Every word He spoke, every miracle He performed…led to the cross.


John the Baptist’s declaration that, “He must increase and I must decrease” in John 3:30 implies that he knew his purpose as well. Of course we were all created to glorify…

DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH FAITH FOR SOMEONE ELSE’S STORM?

wp-1488231889142.jpg

Have you ever had someone come to you in need of help…support…or strength, while you’re overwhelmed with your own issues?

Your greatest challenge sometimes isn’t how you make it through your storm, but how you help someone else make through their storm while you’re going through yours.

God wants you to grow stronger not just for yourself…but for someone else too.


You’ve got to have enough faith for someone else when their’s is weak…

You’ve got to have enough hope for someone else when their’s is gone…


Romans 15:1 (NIV)

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.

Stop right now and thank God for those who HOPED YOU THROUGH when you had given up.

Remember, Jesus had to have enough faith for everyone on that boat!

Matthew 8:23-26  (NKJV)

 23 Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. 24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. 25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”

26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.

WHO WILL YOU DOWNLOAD INTO YOUR ‘HEART DRIVE’?

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
BE CAREFUL WHO YOU DOWNLOAD INTO YOUR ‘HEART’DRIVE…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1480941144142.pngWhen we CHOOSE to download or install an APP, that APP asks for permission to ACCESS what is INSIDE our device…

Our images

Our videos

Our audio

Our contacts

Our storage.

Our HARD DRIVES.

In other words before we can begin using an app, it asks for AUTHORITY over our smart phone, device or computer.

The same thing occurs in our spiritual lives. Both God and the enemy are asking for permission and access into us…

Our hearts

Our minds

Our spirits

Our contacts

Our storage/memory

Our ‘HEART DRIVES’.

In other words, both God and the enemy are asking for AUTHORITY and influence over our lives. Some apps even ask if they can post or act on our behalf.

But just as with a smart device, no one gets access and authority unless we DOWNLOAD them by choice and give them permission.

Some APPS are good, but there are…

GOD’S TANGIBLE INTANGIBLES…

wp-1488173185876.jpg

An intangible is something with no physical substance. It can’t be touched or seen…it’s immaterial.

God is intangible…we can’t see Him, but His creation is evidence of His presence…everywhere.

Romans 1:20

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

It’s interesting that it’s the intangibles in life that are so valuable, that those things that hold so much value can NEVER…

Be bought, but are yet so valuable…

Be seen, but are most real…

Be held, but fill you up…

Be touched, but touch you…

They’re God’s TANGIBLE INTANGIBLES.

They’re like God..not physical, or material…Just like God, they can’t be seen, but they leave so much evidence of their presence. Think about it…

Love…

Faith…

Joy…

Hope

Peace…

Patience…

Kindness…

Self-control…

I’m sure you can think of more.

They’re nouns that can’t be seen…

They’re verbs that pack so much power…

They’re from God, and He transfers them from His spirit to ours.

It’s a gradual, but sudden transfer as you feel yourself going from…

Unloved to loved…

Faithless to faithful…

Sad to Joyful…

Hopeless to Hopeful…

Chaos to peace…

Impatience to patience…

Mean to Kindness…

Undisciplined to disciplined…

You can’t see it, touch it, smell it, buy it, or sell it…

They change you…

They change your world…

They change the world of everyone around you…

They allow the world to see God in you…

They’re God’s TANGIBLE INTANGIBLES…

AND THEY’RE MORE REAL THAN ANYTHING YOU CAN SEE OR FEEL!

Galatians 5:22 (NKJV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

1 Corinthians 13:13

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

DON’T LET BEING BORED GET YOU IN TROUBLE…

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
REMEMBER THIS NEXT TIME YOU’RE BORED…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1476196039552.jpg
I sometimes think about the fact that times I used to call boring I now call relaxing. We need to be careful when we get bored. Boredom is an emotion that can get us in trouble if we aren’t careful. When people get bored, that’s when the devil can get busy.

Remember what happened in 2 Samuel 11 when the kings went out to battle, David sent Joab his servant and all of Israel out to battle, but he stayed behind? One evening while he was ‘relaxing’ on the rooftop, he saw Bathsheba bathing. Her husband, Uriah, was very devoted and loyal to David and he was among those in battle…and the rest is history. The point is that David was relaxing when he should have been doing battle. Now, there’s nothing wrong with relaxing, but there’s a time and a season for for all things (Ecclesiastes 3). There can…

YES, YOU’VE GOT TO LEARN TO RELATE WITH PEOPLE YOU DON’T TRUST…

wp-1488048352149.jpg

Your success, effectiveness and peace is not only determined by how well you relate with people you DO TRUST…but how well you are at relating with people that you DON’T TRUST.

Our ultimate trust is in God, but He didn’t put us on this earth alone.

God has also ordained it that there is little that we can accomplish alone.

Even God Himself uses His angels to relate to us…

Hebrews 11:14 (NKJV)

 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

 God let the captives in Babylon know that though they trusted Him, they were to pray for the peace of the city in which they lived because their peace was dependent on the city’s peace…

Jeremiah 29:7(NKJV)

And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.

Jesus sent the first disciples out in pairs (Mark 6:7, Luke 10:1)

The apostles worked in pairs, teams and even depended heavily on the early church for help.

As much as we are interdependent on another in this life, God also warned us about putting our trust in people rather than Him…

Psalm 118:8 (NKJV)

It is better to trust in the Lord. Than to put confidence in man.

Of course we all want to be in relationships and situations with people we trust, but that’s not always possible…Sometimes we can’t even trust our own selves.

It seems it’s getting harder and harder to trust people these days.

We have families, jobs, churches, communities, organizations that we are all a part of in which to live, but the fact is that you KNOW you can’t trust everyone…

In your family…

On your job…

In your church…

In your community…

In our government…

Sometimes we go through seasons and situations when we can’t trust our spouse, children, parents or even friends…because we are human beings being human.

Do we abandon these relationships and resources because of the lack of trust or total trust?

Of course not!


Your ability to be successful, effective and have peace in your life is just as dependent upon your ability to work and relate with people you DON’T trust as well as those you DO trust.


How do you do it?

First of all trust God first. If He has you in a situation, or you have allowed yourself into a situation where trust is limited…you still have to lean on His word, truth, character and TRUST HIM.

Second pray for wisdom and discernment so you can know WHO to trust and WHO NOT to trust.

Third pray for those whom you don’t trust that they submit themselves to God through our Lord and Savior Yeshua, Jesus Christ. It’s bigger than just you or me…Ultimately it’s more about their relationship with God than ours with them.

Fourth, remain in God’s character so that you can set a standard and example of behavior and plant good seeds for God’s Kingdom. You do this by walking in the Spirit as defined in Galatians 5:22, 23.

Finally, remember that God had equipped you with everything you need for this LIFE and GODLINESS in this life, through His divine nature that is now inside you…

2 PETER 1:2-8 (NKJV)

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

No you can’t trust everyone…

But,

Trust God…

Trust Yourself…

And remember, GOD IS GREATER THAN THOSE WHOM YOU DON’T TRUST.

Add this to your prayer life…”Lord give me the ability to relate with those I don’t trust.”

WHO GOD ISN’T…

A genie in a bottle…

An errand boy…

A good luck charm…

A ‘man’ upstairs…

A co-pilot…

A liar…

A joke…

A myth…

Our world, even some believers are treating God with less reverence…less respect.

Let us remember to be careful how we speak, act and even think about The Great I Am, Yahweh, Elohim, Jehovah….not just what we call Him, but who He to us.

Remember, when we’re commanded to never take His name in vain…His ‘name’ goes beyond what we call Him…

His name is who He is…

His authority…

His character…

His essence…

Who He is.

I’m persuaded to believe that diminishing who God is through a lack of reverence equates to blasphemy.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

Exodus 20:7 (NKJV)

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

 

DON’T GET DISTRAC(K)TED…

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1475203790582.jpg 2 Corinthians 6:12
“You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.”

Children can have very short attention spans. You can tell a child what to do, and if you leave the room and come back, you can find them doing something totally different. Why? Because they are easily DISTRACTED. God’s adult children can be the same way…What has God told us to do?

Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations…”

Matthew 9:38, “Pray to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest”

John 15:16 “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide…”
God has called us to make disciples. God has given each of us a purpose according to our abilities (parable of the talents Matthew 25:14-30). Unfortunately, sometimes…

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
FOR THE DAYS YOU FEEL YOU’RE GOING TO EXPLODE…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1487960305261.jpg FOR THE DAYS YOU FEEL YOU’RE GOING TO EXPLODE

Some days…Some days…. Some days life can be so HEAVY!

You want to stay in bed, but as you close your eyes…your troubles are STILL staring right at you.

You get up and they follow you everywhere you go…

Even if you forget them for a brief period of happiness, they come rushing from the back of your mind whispering loudly…RHHEMMEMBER USSS???

Some days, even the strongest of us don’t feel we are going to make it.We  feel overwhelmed emotionally, physically, financially and most of all SPIRITUALLY.

There are days that we may not even feel like praying or worshiping. It’s okay, you can admit it. God knows your heart anyway…and that’s a blessing.

It’s a blessing that God knows His children… because  He knows we are flesh.

Psalm 103:13-14 (NKJV)

13 As a father pities his children,
So the Lord…
