This morning God showed me a vision of a crown of thorns placed in the middle of this empty white space and surrounding it were many other crowns. They’re were all different shapes and sizes. They had different jewels on them. They were scattered everywhere. I felt God say that we are apart of His kingdom. We are heirs to him. We have royalty running through our veins. All we have to do is pick up our crown and claim the victory. Claim the Power of Jesus. Later on in prayer I began to see that each crown had a different word on it. Such as: joy, hope, peace, comfort, forgiveness. God is saying whatever it is you need pick up your crown and wear it. You have the victory and power.
“Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes.” Isaiah 58:12
Your destiny or calling in life doesn’t have to be that of becoming a doctor, lawyer, teacher, or the titles we hear most common. There are people at work behind the scenes. In this chunk of text the Bible even says “some.” Some as in “Some of you will do this and some of you will do that.” Some as in we all have different paths. We all have different destinies. I think a lot of this scripture. “Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities.” You can be a world changer. Being a world changer doesn’t mean you have to go out into all parts of the world, your world is where you are. My world is a small town with one red light, but I want nothing more for it than success. Your task at hand could be to shift and shape your community, to give back to your community. There’s nothing wrong with having a purpose that doesn’t require you to make this huge jump and leave everything behind. Some of us have the opportunity to rebuild and restore right where we are!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 God placed in us the spirit of bravery right from the beginning when He gave His life for us. He repeatedly displayed bravery throughout His life and because we are a part of Him we have that same bravery inside of us. We are unstoppable through Him. Nothing can defeat you.
“I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is He is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life He has for His followers, oh, the utter extravagance of His work in us who trust Him—endless energy, boundless strength!” Ephesians 1:15-19 MSG
God has a plan for your life. He wants you to flourish. He has created you and only one you. You have a purpose and a destiny. No one can fulfill the plan for your life but you. There is no other you. You are one of a kind. No one else can do what you are called to do in life. That is why you are so important. The world needs you. You are the missing piece to the puzzle. You are special. He gives you energy and strength to take on each day of your journey. Prosper! Be a victor! Be focused! The same words in the book of Esther apply to you also:
“If you keep silent at this time, liberation and deliverance will come to the Jewish people from another place, but you and your father’s house will be destroyed. Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.” Esther 4:14 HCSB
Who knows? Maybe your time is now. Don’t miss it by giving up or turning away from who God has called you to be. Have endurance, be persistent. There is no other you. The world needs you. It needs your creativity. It needs your talent. It needs your work ethic. It needs everything you have to offer, you are not a waste. You are everything. God needs you. He needs you be the real you. He needs you to step into your calling. You will change circumstances and lives. God needs your help. If you are who has planned for you to be, then you’re working in His plan. He needs your help in completing the works that He has for the world.
“You’re all I want in heaven! You’re all I want on earth! When my skin sags and my bones get brittle, GOD is rock-firm and faithful. Look! Those who left you are falling apart! Deserters, they’ll never be heard from again. But I’m in the very presence of GOD — oh, how refreshing it is! I’ve made Lord GOD my home. GOD, I’m telling the world what you do!” Psalm 73:25-28 MSG
God, I’m telling the world what you do! Are you telling the world what God is doing for you or what he has done for you? We spend so much time complaining about life, about things we don’t have, or things we wish were different. Do we ever talk about the good? Rarely. I’ve caught myself falling into this at times. There is so much good to discuss though! I’m breathing! I’m alive! I have a purpose! I have a destiny! God created me for a reason. He created you for a reason. He is doing something in your life at this very moment even if you don’t realize it yourself. Speak of the positive things in life! Speak life into your situations! A positive mindset= a positive mind. In the wise words of One Tree Hill: “Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.” Be happy! Be happy in times where your mind and body wants so bad to be mad/sad! Think of the good. Be thankful for everything. It make be difficult. It may sound crazy. Everything we overcome is apart of our testimony, I’m thankful for the battle scars. I’m thankful that God has shown me time and time again that when the world tries to take me or people I love out, that it is never over. It is never over, there’s more. There’s more to your life! If your facing a bad hand right now, you will get through it! You are an army dressed for battle! You’re An Army
I attended my first class as a Worship Life College student tonight. I am on the entrepreneur track and I am learning how to start my own business. I feel so empowered and eager for more! As I always do after leaving Worship Life. I’m so blessed to have these people in my life. I can’t wait to see where this takes me. I know so many things are to come! I pray that I grow spiritually. I’ve grown so much in the past two years, now I’m ready to push myself even harder! WOOOOH PUMPED!!!!!!!
Compassion:– sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.
* The word “compassion” is mentioned 40 times in the Bible.
Scriptures to back up compassion:
- “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12
- “I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” Exodus 33: 19
- “Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.” Isaiah 30:18
- “says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” Isaiah 54:10
1. an intense feeling of deep affection
2. a person or thing that one loves.
The word “love” is mentioned over 100 times in the Bible.
- “But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High.” Luke 6:35
- “The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31
- “Love must be sincere.” Romans 12:9
Without compassion we cannot truly love and without love we cannot truly have compassion. Compassion is an act of selflessness. Compassion is when we care for others without caring what we get in return. Compassion stirs up our emotions. We grow connections to people through compassion. We feel what others feel through compassion. We relate to others with compassion. Love is how we deal with our compassion. It is how we put compassion into practice. It is how we build relationships. God tells us to love. He tells to be compassionate. He says it time and time again in different several different wordings. Compassion comes from a pure heart. Love comes from a pure heart. The two are wrapped into one. They both must be sincere. Love your neighbor, God says. When dealing with rough situations and difficult people, be compassionate. Know that underneath the face you’re looking at is pain and hurt you know nothing about. Love without making people work for it. Showing love can change someone’s life. If we only showed love and compassion to people who were always nice and perfect, we would reach no one. It’s people with troubled spirits and hearts who need to see God’s love and compassion the most. God is working through us to speak to his people. No matter how difficult they may be, they could be the ones who need it most. Pray for others. Pray for the people you want to give up on, because even though we may fail each other, God doesn’t. He doesn’t ever up on anyone us. God shows us compassion and love every minute of every day. Our testimony derives from the two. We walk on both. They are our foundation and fundamentals. Two words, but the same thing. Have both. Be both.
These words are so powerful. You have something beautiful inside of you. Everyone does, something different and unique. Something one of a kind. No one has the same beauty as you. God has placed something inside of you only you can carry and share with the world, don’t hold it in. “You brought to life the part of me I thought had died” Your life is not over. Your gifts and talents are not dead. Your spirit is very much alive. He restores our hopeless hearts and makes us feel like we can, in a sense, “breath again.” Take a deep breathe and see what God has in store for you. How amazing is he, always around, bringing life back into order. He has saved us from ourselves. I am not dead. My God is not dead. He is alive in me.
“Get it together That’s what I say to me
I put on the pressure
You could do better
Be who you’re supposed to be
But that’s when You came in
Right when I needed You
You said all of the things that I was believing
Not one of them were true
You lifted my head up
I was keeping my head down
I didn’t know love
But I do now
You stood right there and then You broke apart the lies
And You told me
I had something beautiful inside
You brought to life the part of me I thought had died
‘Cause You stood right there until I saw me through Your eyes
So this is living”
