Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
Our eyes deceives us in many ways. Many has missed it because of looking and analyzing and thereby missing the message. Before I received salvation, i loved God so much that I hated Christians. My reasoning was that they don’t represent God the right way. But what I see people do shouldn’t be the determining factor of my relationship with God.
1 Corinthians 1:26-30 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
Seek the understanding of the spirit in a man. God uses people who don’t qualify in our own standards.
John 8:15-16 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.
Many failed to start because of reasoning. God shows you a house, you say the bank won’t approve the finance. He shows you a post to apply for, you say they have their own person.
Wake up and realize that you are not the same as other people. What God has put in you is not for your benefit only but His people. Jacob is promised big things while in a uncomfortable situation. He had his head on a rock while sleeping.
Genesis 28:13 And behold, the LORD stood above it and said: “I am the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants.
With this negative mind, how many people are you depriving? When you hear build your faith. There is provision on the promises.
Genesis 28:15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”
Colossians 1:19-22 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight-
The fear of The Lord must return to restore mankind so we experience man as God purposes. Proverbs 20:6-7 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man? The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.
As you continue fearing The Lord, he is preparing something for you and you’ll eat the labor of your hands.
Psalm 128:1-4 Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways. When you eat the labor of your hands, You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed Who fears the LORD.
As you start the ministry, people will come but you will experience problems with some of them.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
2 Timothy 2:1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:23-25 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
From this clip, the boy was being thought to ride a bike, but time came where he had to start moving on his own and this requires faith and believing in self to break away from the tutor.
James 2:17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
The more you want somebody to change the more they get worse, this is so something in you must be dealt with. You might be an impatient man/woman and your partner just happen to be slow. The more you want them to change seems like the slower they get.
God might be dealing with your lack of patience through this person. Sometimes after receiving salvation, we want everybody around us to change and they just seem not to see things as you do. God is saying “I’m the only one who can change this person” same as He changed you. When you have given up, God raises the person.
2 Corinthians 4:7-8,10-12 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
1 Timothy 4:16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
When you get out of your house, you are confident that you look good. If we can spend the time we spend trying to look beautiful outside in trying to be beautiful inside, we will be true ambassadors.
Matthew 5:13-14 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Acts 20:28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.
