How to Keep your New years resolution.......



A resolution is A firm decision to do or not to do something. Every year around this time People make New years resolutions to stop.....














1. Drinking
2. Smoking
3. Get out of Debt
4. Lose some weight
5. Organize there life....


Now there is nothing wrong with any of these they are self-improvement resolutions the problem is we have been making these same resolutions for YEARS..


The definition of INSANITY is.. (See Below)










This is what we do year after year expect change in our life, or situation(s) but continue to do it the same way. 


When there is a flaw in a creation inorder to fix the problem you have to rebuild the product. Right???


SO How do I rebuild? What Iam I doing wrong? ok????????????






1st. You develop a foundation to stand on   












2nd. Because all of you wasnt flawed you remove the flawed pieces but use the salvageable part again




























3rd. Develop self-control over  what's stoping you from your ''resloution''






Basically get down to the core of it...... 


In all your Goals  you want to acheive BUT seem to struggling with
Remember it takes 


DISCIPLINE-The practice of training  to obey rules or a code of behavior


See you!!! Search you!!!! Change you!!!!




Question: Now what's your New Years Resolution???????

Natural order of Men & Woman (take your position)

I read the bible a lot not for sermons but for everyday nourishment to be feed spiritually. One day I can across a passage in Judges 4 and in this paticular cyle of Judges God called a woman to Judge Israel her name was Deborah. Now what astounded me was the fact of since Genesis God had a man to lead/Judge Israel there were several men but to name a few Adam, Abram, Moses, , (ring a bell) and now even with no clear cut leader after the conquest of Joshua to the time of the Judges there were men before her such as Othniel & Ehud and my question was 

Why a woman?????? (no dis-respect) 

The Holy Spirit answered me and said history repeats itself what you see now was going on back then, so..... I began to think  that the reason was and it clearly states in the Bible that the Isrealite men were sleeping around with gentile woman serving Idol God's (objects) occuping there time with the ways of the world so God used an unlikely source (Deborah) to do his work.........

Now if you read this passage you will find a man (barak)who was the general of the army who's job is to protect and serve and be ready to ''do or die'' at anytime, and he was so Deborah issues a decree to barak to deploy all the troop to Mt Tabor and God WILL deliver the commander Sisera (who has had them enslaved for 20 hard years of oppression) into your hands... or the Victory will be Yours as a  MAN, But Barak says to Deborah......




''If you will go with me then I will go'' 











Now the general (Barak a man) is scared and ask the Woman (Deborah) to fight with him...........HUH 









Then she Deborah says  '' I will surely go with you; nevertheless, the trip you take will not be for your glory, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. 

See Deborah knew how important it was for the ''MAN'' to receive the Glory but the "MAN'' was/is scared to take his ordanied position as the ''LEADER''



So men the natural order of things are for men to lead but when we are to busy to do GOD'S work the woman has to take over and it upset's the natural order of things so MEN take your position not as dictators but as leaders and let's let the woman rest and marvel over what GOD is doing through us.....

Men let's Be Men and lead

Reflections of 20(11) Experience my Change

As I look back in retrospect of 2011 I see it was a bitter but sweet year for me individually!!!!

I've lost a family member a job and even my mind at times (bitter) But I gained more confidence in the Lord!!!!!!

On April 10th of this year I walked in my calling as a minister by bringing my 1st sermon
''Clarification of your call'' and it truely meant alot to me presenting it..

But before I even thought about ministering to God's people I had to clear my conscience of something in my past to My Wife & my Pastor.....

Regardless of what is was I had to confess it to them and I took major risks on both ends but It had to be done...

I understood that if I am going to hold this position in ministry there is a certain level of ''Integrity'' I have to have.... To many time people get up to talk about what thus says the Lord and people cant hear them because of their lifestyle and I didnt want to be one of them....

When you say you are ''changing'' I realize that there are people that are going to be reluctant of It beacuse they remember who you used to be, what you have done, and the battles your currently living with they want be able to embrace it because there are looking at you in the flesh  and not the spirit the bible says:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 

So Iam living my life to please God not people ALL MY SINS has been washed away by the blood of JESUS and there will be no condemnation for me '' So say what you want to say, Try and tear down my character, attack my integrity, Do what you please, They crucified Jesus and I understand Just as
 Romans 8:17 And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God's glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

I know that everyday is a battle of My flesh and my Spirit but if you want change you have to first want to change, embrace change for yourself not for anyone else... NO ONE else's opinion matter only what God see's your past is going to be there so whatever you WERE let it drive you to what you are going to BECOME 

''BECAUSE THAT WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO BE'' (PURPOSE).......

2ND TIMOTHY 2:3

Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

What World? ''THIS'' world

Roman 12:2 says:
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (a) 




The word this indicates a thing that was mentioned or pointed out it sets a difference between one to another, So when you read ''do not be comformed'' it assumes an outward expression that doesnt reflect whats inside.


 ''THIS'' world


refers to a system of belief's or values!! ''Comtemparary Thinking'' 
 To name a few would be sexual immorality, love of money, evil doing, anything that contradicts God dont.. reflect them..




But what's on the flip side of ''THIS'' ????




It is the indications of another realm, world or even another dimension of some kind (heaven) And this Statement God also gives us a choice rather to comform or not!!!!!! What's your choice??????


So How do I be apart of a world other than "THIS" one??????


Good question!! By being ''Transformed'' greek word is ''metamorphosis'' means to Change in outward appearance (or sinful nature) 


How is that possible there is so much wrong to get into???


By the renewing of your mind which can only come from the Holy Spirit changing you BY meditating on every word God says through scripture...


So you have a choice rather to live for ''THIS'' world or be renewed to God's world Choose quik  before there is ........

    ''ALL''Things Work Together for Your good!!!!!!!







    Romans 8:28 says: 
    And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.



    To me this is one of the greatest encouraging scripture it has pulled me out of a few low periods in my life, and this is how!!!!!

    Paul says '' AND WE KNOW'' WHO IS WE???? 

    Paul is referring to not the religious people but the one's that have a personal relationship with Christ, He's refer's to this as a family the ''True Christians'' the ''true believers'' ''WE'' are!!! And before you read this scripture and try to apply it ask your self
    Do you have religion or A relationship???



    next in this scripture you see Paul says: 
    ''that God causes EVERYTHING to work together for the Good''
     In case you missed it ''everything'' implies total control of all......

    Total control of: Suffering Temptation, Sin, etc.. Everything negative thing that could happen to you GOD causes it to work out For your GOOD***But this is exclusive to those who*****

    1st. LOVE GOD














    2nd. CALLED according to ''HIS'' purpose 



    If you ''LOVE'' GOD then the understanding is, its his way either way, so no matter what battles you face in life your Love says with my whole heart I trust you.... And if your called According to... (get this not your purpose in life) but HIS purpose for your life then you submit to God's Directive will for your Life.....

    So This mean wherever I am in my Walk with Christ my life may seem to be in shambles, everything thrown at me, cant seem to keep my head above water remember.......

    Roman 8:28:
     And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

    I am down and asking how do I get out??????

    As you take inventory of what you have and look at who's depending on you (family) It doesnt look good,


      all I see if bills, bills, bills, the wife/ kids in need of things, and me as the ''provider'' cant support the 1st thing I see if that '' I am down and asking how do I get out'' no check's in sight, money is funny been robbing peter to pay paul and now peter doesnt have it for me to take from him and this is how quikly despression can set in when you feel the weight of the world is on your shoulders and more people continue to add more pounds (screaming) what do I do??????




    This is the time not to pout but to trust God in the your lack began to cry out to him about your circumstance Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 




    This may seem like the craziest thing to do simply because you see no instant results


     this is why we have to have faith which is 
    confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

     


    God is asking??????


     Can you trust me?


     DO you trust me? 


     Will you trust me? 


    The unknown is what we are afraid of and thats the unknown of!!!!


    How are my bills going to get paid?


    Will My wife get what she deserves?


    Will my kids get what they need from me? 


    And in the flesh it just doesnt look like it going to happen but Gods says I will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, and if your apart of God's kingdom you understand that you are an heirs to all God has he will never leave you nor forsake you so continue to pray, fast, study, meditate, and lastly believe God's is able to do whats seems impossible to you stay encouraged, stay the course of the Will of God and watch him work....
