POWER OF THE TONGUE


“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” – Proverbs 18:21

Words have the power to motivate or destroy, energize or deflate, inspire or create despair. Many successful executives can remember the time their father failed to give affirmation to them as a child. The result was either overachievement to prove their worth, or underachievement to prove he was right.

Many a wife has lost her ability to love because of a critical husband. Many a husband has left a marriage because of words of disrespect and ungratefulness. Stories abound regarding the power of words. There are just as many stories of those who have been encouraged, challenged, and comforted with words that made a difference in their lives.

Jesus knew the power of words. He used parables to convey His principles of the Kingdom of God. He used words of forgiveness and mercy. He used words to challenge. He used words to inspire His disciples to miraculous faith.

Do your words give life? Do they inspire and challenge others to greatness? Who does God want you to encourage through your words today?

Affirm someone close to you today.

By Today God is First

FINISH STRONG!

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

FINISH STRONG!


Today’s Scripture: Run in such a way as to get the prize.” (1 Corinthians 9:24,)

Oftentimes, when we have a dream in our heart, we start off strong. We head down the path toward our goal, and we’re so excited! But along the way, we hit some roadblocks and encounter some adversity. Many times, people will just give up and take the easy way out. But we have to remember, it’s not how we start that counts; it’s how we finish. Anybody can be fired up at the beginning, but I’m encouraging you to stick with it until the end! Have the determination to go all the way through. Don’t stop at the halfway mark just because times are tough. Don’t quit because you don’t see anything happening. The scripture tells us not to walk by sight, but walk by faith.

Today, if there’s a dream in your heart, something you’re believing for—a relationship to turn around, a business opportunity or to overcome an addiction—keep pursuing it! Run your race to win the prize! Don’t settle until you see the fullness of what God has placed in your heart. As you stand strong in your faith, I believe God will pour out His favor and blessing upon you, and you will see the victory He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, today I choose to stand strong in You. I set my focus on Your promises and choose to run my race with conviction. I let go of the past by faith today and press forward into the destiny You have in store for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

NEVER GIVE UP

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NEVER GIVE UP


img_34306524648279

1. Popcorns are normally fried in the same pot, in the same oil, at the same time and under the same heat conditions, but they do not all pop at the same time.

2. When flood comes, fish eat ants and When flood recedes, ants eat fish, Only time matters.

3. To make soap, oil is required and to clean oil, soap is required. This is the irony of life.

Everybody needs somebody at any one point in time. Do not despise or treat anyone with scorn when they are excelling or failing more than you. There is time for EVERYTHING and, for EVERYONE. Keep TRUSTING in God and WAITING for your turn. Your time to POP will come at God’s appointed time. NEVER GIVE UP! He makes all things beautiful in His own time.

To understand what life is, you have to visit three locations:

1. The hospital.
2. The prison.
3. The Cemetery.

At the Hospital => You will understand that nothing is more beautiful than health.

In prison => You’ll see that freedom is the most precious thing.

At the cemetery => You will realize that life is worth nothing, the ground we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.

Let us therefore remain humble by having the fear of God and respect for everyone in our society.

May the grace and mercy of the Almighty God, follow us everyday.

Enjoy your day!

Not all lands bring forth fruits, and not all hands that receive command blessings. You need those whose receiving hands will trigger abundant blessings unto you; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

6. The Prayer Conquerors – You need more than prayer warriors IN 2016. Many Prayer warriors pray from their heads only; Prayer conquerors pray from their heart and conquer; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

7. The Recommenders – These are the ones who mention your name in quarters where your skills and talents will be celebrated; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

8. The Correctors – These are the ones who honestly tell you when you are wrong; they prevent you from digging a grave of mistakes that may bury your destiny; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

9. The Committed – Whether things are up or down, these ones are standing with you; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

10. The Loyal – They work with you with all of their hearts to make things work in your life; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

11. The Truth-Tellers – They will not call night day, and day night; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

12. The Altruists – These ones believe that life is not just about them, it is about you too; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

13. The Reliable – You can count on them when it counts most; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

14. The Contented – These ones are not greedy, they are satisfied with whatever they get from you and they bless you from their heart for it; MAY YOU MEET THEM.

15. Lovers and Pursuers of God & Godly Life – These ones are always connected to God; MAY YOU MEET THEM, so you will never be disconnected from your source who is your MAKER. ETERNAL ROCK OF AGES AND KING OF KINGS.

Nothing will block your ways in Jesus name.

I love this, so am sharing it with you…

SAVED BY A LIFEBELT

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

SAVED BY A LIFEBELT


FB_IMG_1439732117561

The U.S.S. Astoria was a heavy cruiser that saw duty during World War II. She fought in the Battle of the Coral Sea and at Midway, then was sunk in August of 1942 at the Battle of Savo Island. On board in the final fight for Savo was Signalman Third Class, Elgin Staples.

Sometime around 2 a.m. on the ship’s last day, Staples was blown overboard when one of the Astoria’s gun turrets exploded. In the water, wounded in both legs by shrapnel and in a state of near-shock, Staples was kept afloat by a narrow lifebelt which he had activated by a trigger.

In his book The Grand Weaver, Ravi Zacharias tells the fascinating story of what happened next.

Four hours after being blown into the Pacific, Staples was picked up by a passing destroyer and returned to the Astoria. Even though the cruiser had been severely damaged, her captain was trying to beach the ship in order to save her. When his attempts failed, Staples found himself back in the water. By now, it was noon.

“This time it was the U.S.S. President Jackson that plucked him out of the water. On board, Staples studied the little lifebelt that saved his life twice that day. He noticed the belt was manufactured by the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio, and carried a registration number.

“Allowed to go home for a visit, Staples related his story to the family and asked his mother, who worked for Firestone, the purpose of the registration number on the belt. She pointed out that the company was holding employees responsible for their work in the war effort and each worker had his/her own number. Staples recalled everything about that lifebelt, including the registration number. As he called it out, his mother’s eyes grew large. She said, ‘That was my personal code that I put on every item I was responsible for approving!’

“His mother had made the belt which had saved his life twice.”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Every person is born empty (without a spirit) which dooms them to eternal punishment in a “Lake of Fire.” Everyone has an available “lifebelt” that makes available eternal life with the Godhead despite Adam’s sin and the sin they have added to their account.

The “lifebelt” is Jesus who gave His life in payment of the penalty for their sin. Despite the fact that it is available, free of charge, many never accept it or chose to use it and lose their life foolishly.

Have you chosen to ignore the only One that has the power to save you from the second death, the “Lake of Fire” or have you activated your “Lifebelt” by asking Him to be your Savior Lord?

THE AMAZING WAYS OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!

THE AMAZING WAYS OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!


FB_IMG_1461037292721

Dr. Ahmed, a well known cancer specialist, was once on his way to an important conference in another city where he was going to receive an award in the field of medical research.

He was excited about the award and so boarded a plane to the venue.

However, two hours after the plane took off, it made an emergency landing at the nearest airport due to a technical problem.

Afraid that he would not make it in time to the conference, he immediately went to the reception to make inquiries. He found out that he would have to wait ten hours for the next flight to his destination!

He rented a car and drove himself to the conference city which was four hours away.

Soon after he left, the weather changed and a heavy storm began. The downpour made it difficult for him to see so he missed a turn he was supposed to take.

Driving in the heavy rain on a deserted road, feeling hungry and tired, he frantically began to look for any sign of civilization.

He came across a small tattered house and knocked on the door. A beautiful lady opened the door. He explained his situation and wanted to use the lady’s telephone, but she had no telephone. She, however, asked him to come inside and wait till the weather improved.

The doctor who was hungry and exhausted accepted the offer.

The lady offered him something to eat and drink.

She asked him to join her in prayers, but he declined.

According to him, he believed in hard work, not in prayers!

Sitting at the table and sipping his tea, the doctor watched the woman pray many times beside a baby’s crib.

Feeling that the woman might be in need of help, the doctor asked her what exactly she needed from God and asked if God ever listened to her prayers.

When he inquired of the child in the crib, the woman explained that her son was down with cancer. And they had been advised to see a doctor named Ahmed, who could cure him, but she did not have enough money to afford his fees.

She said that God had not yet answered her prayers, but said that God would create some way out one day. She added that she would not allow her fears to overcome her faith!

Stunned and speechless, Dr. Ahmed began to weep!

He was forced to say out loud, “GOD IS GREAT” and recollected to the woman, all the sequences of bad events: malfunction on the plane, a thunderstorm and how he lost his way. All of which had happened because God answers prayers, wanted to give him a chance to come out of his bondage of materialistic career pursuit and give some time to a poor, helpless woman who had nothing but rich prayers!

Oh! What a God!

God may not answer your prayers YOUR WAY but he will always answer HIS way.

Behind the scenes, he will move men, the weather, events, circumstances, etc., in order to work out the best for you!

Do not stop trusting!

Do not stop hoping!

God is busy planning your dancing this year!

Hold on!

Hold out!

Look up daily!

(This touched and still touches me. I hope it touches you too).

Feel free to share… The amazing ways of our Heavenly Father!!!

THE VERY RARE AND MOST BEAUTIFUL VASE

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

THE VERY RARE AND MOST BEAUTIFUL VASE


66019

“Behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21).

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away there lived a very poor man in a shabby house in a run-down neighborhood on the wrong side of the tracks in an economically depressed town, in a state overrun with poverty and need. Things weren’t looking good.

One day as he was rummaging about the piles of items discarded from the local flea market, tossed aside because nobody wanted any of them, something caught his eye. It was a vase, and to his amazement, it was unbroken despite the obvious abuse it had suffered; unbroken, and unmarred. In fact, it was beautiful, even more so when contrasted by all the trashy surroundings.

He took it home and placed it upon the mantle in his dingy living room, and then sat and simply stared at it. Day after day he would spend hours gazing upon the very rare and most beautiful vase. One day, as he was intently focused upon the vase, he realized how cluttered his mantle was with other things, and how stained the wall was with the grime of poverty. So he cleared the junk off the mantle, and put a fresh coat of paint upon the wall. That simple decision caused the vase to stand out in even greater beauty, for now his entire wall took on the look of a beautiful painting, and he found such joy in gazing upon it all.

Then one day as he entered his living room, he noticed how worn was the carpet, and how tattered were the furnishings. He pulled the carpet out and uncovered a beautiful hardwood floor; he cleaned and recovered the furnishings, transforming the look of the entire room. This in turn led him to slowly begin renovating the rest of his home. Once finished, he delighted in the comfort of his beautiful abode.

But then he noticed that the yard was overgrown with weeds, and filled with junk; the fence was broken down and the outside of his home looked weathered and wasted. So he set upon making the needed repairs and cleaning up the yard. Soon, his home became the talk of the neighborhood, for it brought such a sense of hope to all those around him. Before long the other homeowners began making repairs upon their houses and yards, such that the entire neighborhood transformed and became the talk of the town.

Yet a little while longer and the town itself began to change; cleaning the trash off the streets, repairing broken windows and repainting faded homes; refurbishing businesses and rekindling dreams. At length, the town became the garden spot of the State. Tourists came from far and wide to see the beauty of the transformed town. Upon seeing it, they each went home inspired to make changes in their own homes.

Meanwhile, the man sat happily in his living room and looked upon that rare and most beautiful vase, blessed that his life had been transformed by its beauty.

Jesus said that kingdom of God was within us; that the royal, ruling power of God was at work transforming our lives from the inside out. This is that very rare and most beautiful vase, and the power of its influence is truly extraordinary!
