Understanding The Importance Of Seeking God Before Anything Else

 

Everything we allow in the gates of our heart is seed that has an assigned harvest time of curses or blessings. Curses are purposed to keep us from experiencing the joy of the Lord that is found in the  presence of the Lord that is our strength to walk by faith. No seed is wasted because every seed has an assignment to bless our whole person and lifestyle or an assignment to curse our whole person and lifestyle.

This is why we must be content with our current season and trust God to give us our more as we allow His infinite wisdom to direct our thoughts, desires and decisions. Being content in our current season is being content to seek only the kingdom of  God and His righteousness as He adds all things to us that are established in His kingdom will and His right way of living.

We can not expect the harvest time of all things being added to us without us being content to cultivate the seed of  faith by seeking God’s kingdom first and His righteousness, that gives us the mind of Christ to be a good steward of managing all desires being added to us. Being a good steward is being a good manager of God’s holy desires by not allowing ourselves to become tempted by sinful desires. Whatever we seek in life, we implant those desires in our heart until we harvest what and who we seeked first in our life . When we seek we receive the wage of sinful desires which is death and the gift of holy desires which is eternal life. This is the pleasure principle that applies to seeking what and who we desire the most. When all things are added to us all desires attached to those things are added to us, whether sinful or holy.

Psalms 37:4 tells us, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

God’s holy desires of His holy heart purifies our sinful desires to protect us from the cursed law of the flesh where the wage of sinful desire is spiritual death, emotional death, relational death, intellectual death, financial death and ultimately physical death. We are born into sinful desire as we are shaped in the iniquity of the cursed heart (Psalms 51:5) that is desperately deceitful and wicked (Jeremiah 17:9-10).

Our desires outside of God’s desires lead to death because those desires lead us away from the presence of God covering our mind, spirit, soul and body that encompasses our thoughts, words, will, desires, emotions and actions. When we seek first the kingdom of God where holy desires abide, we are able to rest in peace on earth as God’s peace is established in heaven. When we seek first our own selfish desires outside of the will of God, these desires are assigned by the kingdom of  Satan where ungodly desires abide and we end up experiencing hell on earth as it is established in hell.

God’s holy desires protects us to cover us with His Holy Spirit who promotes us in the understanding of how to steward our gift of eternal life that is the gift of God’s infinite wisdom; directing the pathology of our thoughts, words, will, desires, emotions and actions which is directing us to choose the blessed thought, the blessed word, the blessed will, the blessed desire and the blessed action that will manifest the blessed promise of God that is established in us understanding the way God communicates to us.

Our decisions manifest the path of our thoughts, words, will, desires, emotions and actions. Therefore, we must be diligent to protect our heart from seeds that will produce a harvest of curses and eternal death. We must be diligent to protect our heart by abiding in the presence of faith that will produce a harvest of blessings and eternal life that is the manifested promises of God for our life. Whatever seed  we have been sowing in our heart will reveal the evidence of blessings or curses, life or death, therefore we must abide in the presence of God so we can understand how to choose life.

God desires us to choose the path of eternal life where His presence, power, provision and promise are added to us that will attract all favorable things towards us. Satan desires us to choose the path of eternal death where his presence, power, provision and curse abides that will attract all unfavorable things towards us. The path that God or the Satan directs begins in the thoughts of our mind (Proverbs 3:5-6). Thoughts of faith or thoughts of fear. Words of faith or words of fear. Will of faith or will of fear. Desires of faith or desires of fear. Emotions of faith or emotions of fear. Actions that birth manifested promises of grace and truth or actions that birth manifested curses of deceit and wickedness.

In order for us to choose eternal life, we must abide and rest in the presence of His living word of faith unceasingly that is the seed of faith waiting to being harvested to instruct us how to walk by faith where God’s kingdom is established on earth as it is in heaven. Our by default we choose eternal death whenever we abide in the presence of  Satan’s word that is the seed of fear waiting to be harvested to instruct us how to walk by sight where his kingdom is established on earth as it is in hell.  When we walk by faith we are cultivating and therefore working the seed of faith that attracts and commands favorable results when we understand and obey the faith that we hear. The seed, whether it is from God or Satan always calls out and commands the desire it is purposed to harvest revealing the evidence that there is a heaven and there is a hell.

It is important that we purify our hearts by decluttering our hearing so we can understand the holy desire of God. This process starts when we abide and rest in the presence of God’s word waiting for Him to reveal to us how He desires us to obey His living word so we are empowered to understand the Holy Desire of God (Psalms 37:4). When we live our life to seek the kingdom of God and His right way of living first, we protect our heart with all diligence as we are made new in His image and likeness that empowers us to live a blessed lifestyle on earth as His blessed presence abides in heaven.

Let Go To Let God

 

Stress arises when we try to control what and who was never in our control Peace comes in when we give God control. The word of God tells us in 2 Corinthians 10:1-6 that God is our mighty weapon of war. When we let go of what and who is not in our control to let God fight on our behalf, we are actually utilizing the power of our free will to become perfected in His will. When our will abides in His will, the presence of his living word entering our mind, gives us rest from stress as we willfully relinquish our will, desires and emotions to come into alignment with His righteous will, desires and emotions.  His living presence gives us joy instead of pain, peace instead of  anxiety, comfort instead of dis easement. His loving presence heals us from the fear that desires to embody our thoughts will desires and emotions in order to take us out of God’s loving presence.The word of God tells us in Proverbs 16:11, that in His presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore.

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

The presence of God’s revealed word is our gift of eternal life that  removes thoughts of fear, words of doubt, deceitful desires and wicked intentions giving us thoughts of faith, words of hope, righteous desires and righteous intent. Our work is to abide in the presence of His living word as we allow His revealed word to reconstruct our whole person as a new creation in the living word of God that covers our thoughts, words, will, desire, emotions and actions. God’s continual work is to add to us what His living presence transforms in us to attract to us a peaceful and enjoyable life free from stress, worry, heartache and pain. Although, He does not cause the pain in our lives, if we allow ourselves to trust in Him wholeheartedly, He will use the pain for our gain.

Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

Let our consuming desire become to know Him so we can learn how to love Him wholeheartedly which empowers us to become one with Him (1 John 4:17). In us becoming one with Him, we will become one with ever thing He is. The power, love and sound mind that comes from being in relationship with Him because Hi living presence in us is the perfect love that removes all fear. His love is our power and perfect peace. Whatever and whoever we need in life, He already is for our life because He is the Giver and Sustainer of eternal life where every good thought, word, will, desire, emotion, action and reward resides. So let us abide in His loving presence where we bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit that is needed to overcome the fruit of the enemy’s spirit in us and in people. When He becomes our consuming desire His desire in us protects us from every unrighteous desire that desires to tempt us to enslave us to a lifestyle of fear that is the result of the evil day of a fallen worldly and carnal mindset (Ephesians 5:16).

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

When we let go, we surrender the power of our free will in trusting our own understanding as we willfully embrace the power of God’s will where we are transformed into our new image and likeness of His higher and heavenly thoughts, words, will, desire, emotion and action that is established in His peace that is above all understanding. The reason His thoughts and ways are not our own is because His thoughts and ways are established in His perfect love that transforms us from the error of our own thinking in order to give us a future and hope (Jeremiah 29:11). He is who we need to become so we can be at peace and experience the incorruptible beauty of His gentleness and loving kindness that draws us closer to Him, who is our healing and ultimate blessing. Drawing us closer to Him who is our full power. Drawing us closer to Him who is our Ultimate Lover. He is the Redeemer of our whole person who we need to become with in our mind, spirit, soul and body.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Instead of us thinking about what we can’t control. Let us continually surrender our heart and give God control. When He is in control, we are safe and secure from this evil day because His presence covers us to redeem us whole, well and holy. Where He is we need to be because His presence is our heaven on earth and our peace in a chaotic world full of stress. Remember, we may be in this world but we are not of this world because our mind and heart is purposed to abide in His heavenly presence working in us to establish us in peace, power and love.

If you are battling stress, I welcome you to enter His presence where you will find rest, peace and strength for your weary soul. When we cast our cares on Him, He gives us rest from the stress because our whole person identity is covered in His Holy Spirit. Let go of your way and let God have His way. He desires to heal what we desire to conceal so Satan will no longer be able to steal our power love and peaceful mind.

ONLY Consider The PROMISE!

Only consider the promise not the problems that WILL arise to stop you from pursuing the joy of the promise that God sets before you. These problems are fear tactics to kill, steal and destroy your faith, hope, love and joy in moving towards claiming your promise. In John 16:33 Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” The joy of the promise God puts before us delivers us from the problems that desire to defeat and overcome us. God’s plan for our life is to give us a future and hope that will deliver us from the pain, regret and condemnation that is attached to problems.

You may have ninety-nine problems but the joy God sets before you is not one and it is purposed to help you overcome. So relax, relate, release the fear, doubt and thoughts of surrendering. Acknowledge you are in the fight for your life while also acknowledging you are the predetermined CHAMPION who is guaranteed the win as long as you move forward and do not quit. Refocus and strategize your next faith empowered move and TKO that current problem as you move forward in victory to finish your race as you collect your rewards. While doing so, consider this truth found in

Hebrews 12:2 “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Every promise in God is yes and amen. Know that the Christ in you has already qualified you to win your battles in life hidden in the challenges of life. So get filled up on the living word of God and move forward by faith that will remove the mountains of problems surrounding you. In the presence of God’s living word is the solution, strategy, idea and instruction that is purposed to be walked out by faith to make you whole while eliminating what desires to kill your faith and steal your joy to destroy your promise. REMEMBER you are an overcomer so prepare yourself to overcome by only considering the promises of God for your life by believing your promise of faith that is purposed to deliver you from the problems that surround you!

Reach out to get help by booking your Life & Relationship Empowerment Coaching session today. It is my honor, desire, gift and life’s calling to help you overcome what desires to overcome you. I will pray with you and help you implement an action plan that is purposed to help you win the fight of your life.

The Power Of Kingdom Thinking

 

 

We are purposed to lift up and magnify God. When we lift up God we lift up our healing and our deliverance. When we lift up God we lift up the perfect love of God that removes fear and every challenge that is being presented to us (1 John 4:17-19). Often times we hear about the power of positive thinking.

I want to talk about the power of kingdom thinking.

Throughout Jesus ministry when he came to minister, He said repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The kingdom of heaven is the mind of God that is the mind of perfect love, perfect power, perfect peace, perfect wisdom, perfect understanding and therefore kingdom thinking. It is the mind of holiness, the mind of wellness, the mind of wholeness. Holiness heals and restores the presence of the Creator God, who is the Heavenly Father of His creation. When we are separated from the life that sustains us to elevate us and uplift us, we suffer from a growing void that is purposed to be fulfilled with the presence of our Creator God, who is our Heavenly Father.

His presence becomes our new way of thinking, our kingdom way of thinking that is a higher and heavenly way of thinking (Isaiah 55:8-9):

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Without faith, it is impossible to please God, because when faith is lifted up God, the Father of faith is glorified and overcomes fear. His eternal presence in us is our healing that is lifted up in us to overcome the insecurity, hurt, pain and heartbreak that is a result of our inner being having a void of His healing presence.  God desires us to intimately become intertwined as one with His perfect love; so His perfect love can be lifted up in us to overcome the presence of fear in our inner being that connects with the fear of a fallen world. The perfect love of God is the fulfillment of faith and when we are filled with faith our inner being connects with the faith in this world to awaken a new way of thinking, believing, desiring and responding that is kingdom minded bringing the will of God on earth as it is in heaven.

It is the kingdom of God that came to reclaim and return the people of a perishing world back to the presence of God who is perfect love and our gift of eternal life. This eternal life is what fulfills the inner being of our mind, spirit, soul and body with the presence of the kingdom of heaven. This eternal life is the presence of God that purifies our heart to protect our heart from any presence in thought, word, desire that is not of God’s kingdom and therefore not of His perfect love towards us.

Positive thinking has no power without the truth of God’s eternal wisdom that sets us free from what positive thinking does not have the power to heal in our life and heart. It only has the power to disguise the issues of the heart that is a beautiful nightmare. Beautiful in charm and immediate gratification but a nightmare in the final outcome that ends in spiritual, emotional, relational, intellectual, financial and physical death. Positive thinking rooted in the presence of God’s eternal wisdom is the power that overcomes every negative circumstance awakening in us the power of Christ that will do exceeding abundantly more than anything we can ask or think as referenced in Ephesians 3:20:

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.

It is the power that works in us that is the power of kingdom thinking at work in us to accomplish the impossible making it evidently possible!

How God Brings The Increase

For those of you who have a word from God but have not encountered your harvest, I pray your faith will be strengthened by this month’s publisher’s message, “How God Brings The Increase” . Everyday God wants to grow our seed of faith to full maturation so we can experience our harvest of faith. However, everyday we must water that seed through prayer, meditation on God’s living word and spirit led fasting that breaks every chain. The prayer, meditation, studying and fasting,  is the waiting process of faith that can be likened to the germination process that a seed has to go through before it is harvested. During this germination process God’s living word becomes one with our mind, spirit, soul and body that prepares us to walk by faith because we have become that tree that is planted by the river of the Holy Spirit so what ever we do will prosper (Psalms 1:1-3). When God brings the increase, deliverance from whatever afflicts our mind, spirit, soul and body is defeated. He gives the increase so we are made whole by faith in our spiritual health, emotional health, relational health, intellectual health, financial health and physical health.

When our faith is positioned, we can put an expectation on God’s living word to attract what we need, desire and prepared for by faith. The word of God tells us in James 2:14-26 that faith without works is dead. In order to activate our faith we must understand the path of faith we need to travel to manifest the evidence of our faith through God’s grace (Proverbs 3:5-6). Without faith it is impossible to please God because it takes us understanding faith to hear God instruct us to walk by His living word of faith.

Hearing faith is at the beginning of us receiving the promises of God. Faith must be worked if we expect to see the harvest that is hidden inside the seed of faith. Like any harvest, the seed of faith must be tended to and cared for in order for the harvest of increase to occur. If our seed of faith is not planted and watered, we can not expect God to give the increase. However, when we plant the seed of faith and nurture the seed of faith with the water of the living word of God, we can expect our harvest of increase to occur. This harvest of increase is multi dimensional filled with the abundance of God’s presence. However, we must endure the growth process of faith to experience the harvest of increase. The harvest of increase is how God promotes us in wisdom, position and favor with Him and mankind.

When we hear the word of God, we must stay focused in the word of God and wait until the harvest of understanding the word of God occurs, empowering us to walk by faith. This is at the beginning of us working the faith we understand and how faith becomes alive. When our spiritual work of hearing faith is complete, now we can expect the increase of our faith that is an abundance of God’s riches being supplied through Christ Jesus on our behalf. Depending on the seed of faith, the time of the expected harvest varies. For example it takes corn sixty (60) to (100) days to harvest in the right climate. After an apple tree is fully grown, it takes another six to ten years for the apple tree to bear the first harvest of fruit.

The harvest of increase is about intimacy with God that is at the core of right relationship with God. The more we become intimate with the presence of God in us, the more we will have intimacy with the right people around us. In God’s presence is fullness of joy, pleasure, healing, wholeness and every perfect work of Christ Jesus. In His presence there is grace and truth that redeems our hearts and minds back to the image and likeness of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  This intimacy was and is our gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23). This is the harvest of increase Jesus came to bring. This is the gift of eternal life that Jesus came to release. This is the power of God’s kingdom and righteousness that adds all things to us (Matthew 6:23).

This month, as the Founder and Publisher of SUIPStyle Inspirations, I am believing and trusting God that this will be the minute, hour, day, week, month and year of my increase. Will you join me? Every day we water our faith with the living word of God, we can expect Him to bring the increase of His understanding needed to travel on our path of faith. When we pursue the kingdom of God, that is hidden in the mind of Christ, we understand the seed of faith. This seed of faith needs to be watered through our devotional time with God as we wait for Him to bring the increase needed to fulfill our purpose, vision plan and missional assignments.

If this month’s publisher’s message speaks to where you are in your faith walk, I ask that you submit your best donation so we can continue the work of supplying you and other’s readers with the knowledge of God’s living word, purposed to strengthen us all on our faith walk during our life’s journey.

Pursue A Lifestyle of Holiness To Get And Or Stay Whole

A double minded believer in Christ will attract double minded friends. A double minded leader in Christ will attract double minded supporters that will invest in their leadership and trap them into living a double minded lifestyle. When we seek God’s kingdom and righteousness first the love of Christ becomes our consuming desire that will transform our waywardness which is another way of saying double-mindedness. We are purposed to be one as our Lord God is one because a double-minded person is unstable in ALL their ways! (James 1:2-8)

Don’t give into the gossip. Don’t give into the self-righteousness. Don’t give into the contention. Don’t give into the offense. Instead  give into the single-mindedness of Christ that exudes the perfect love of God and let go of any idle time that invites in that deceitful and wicked thoughts, word, emotions behavior and broken relationships . When we learn to invest our time and get about our father’s business to learn how He has called us to the earth to fulfill His heavenly assignment, then like Jesus in Luke 2:49; we will increase in wisdom, position and favor with God and man. Idle time is the devil’s playground and His playground is the human, fleshly, carnal mind. A single-minded believer in Christ pursues their healing all day every day by understanding what it means in their life to truly walk by faith.

You may ask how do I get busy about God’s business? Where do I begin? Like Jesus God’s business starts with renewing our minds with God’s higher and heavenly thoughts that comes when we spend time in the presence of His living word day and night so we will be like trees planted by the rivers of water and whatever we do will prosper (Psalms 1:1-3).  Don’t settle for the devil’s playground when Jesus is working to prepare a place for you and I in His Father’s house (John 14:1-6). It is coming a time that the Father’s house will be the only house managing the earth as it is in heaven. Don’t miss what and who God has for you because you want to be in the “religious in crowd” that is keeping you from your heavenly reward which is the mind of Christ, our Redeemer of eternal life, that is our heavenly inheritance.

The promise land is not the husband, wife, friend, car, job or house. The promise land is the mind of Christ who is our gift of eternal life. Us understanding His mind will add all things to us to include a single-minded wife, single-minded husband, single- minded friends with the power, love and sound mind to receive the added things of blessed relationships, a job, car and a home or anything else we may desire in His will. These things are added to us because we are in agreement with the mind of Christ.   Anything and anyone we go after before the kingdom of God and His righteousness will trap us in a double-minded lifestyle that separates us from the heavenly reward of God’s blessed presence who gives us our power, love and sound mind that will attract the single-minded relationships and opportunities to us with the assignment to protect our heart with all diligence from the issues of life.

If this blog post is speaking to you or making you uncomfortable come out of the “religious in crowd” of double-mindedness and pursue your healing, heavenly reward and heavenly inheritance. God is cleaning house as He hires those in agreement with His will and fires those who are lukewarm (double-minded). Revelations 3:15-17 tells us:

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—

Our value and self-worth is not in how people perceive or desire us outside of the mind of Christ. Our value is placed in how Christ has called us and redeemed us. Now is the time to get about your father’s business because His business is the only business where we will reap total life wellness and riches without regret. What good is it for us to gain the world and loose our soul.  You may think this post is by a “holy roller”. I will give you that but if I am a “holy roller” then I am stunting like my daddy and that is how we in the kingdom of God roll! Every believer in Christ that has the ear to hear and the heart to receive this one is for you and me! For those of you who maybe thinking ” Bye Felicia” or think I am doing the most, my prayer and belief is that as long as you are living I am believing that God will continue to work His perfect work in you until the day of Christ like He has for me. That is why I am confident there is hope for you because He has done it and continues to do it for me.

Contrary to popular belief it takes all of this and a bag of our favorite chips. My favorite chips is Salt and Vinegar potatoe chips. lol! I would love to stand with you in prayer and life to help you overcome your challenges like I have learned to overcome mine. Please know this post is rooted in love and the desire to see us live the life God has purposed us to live. A double minded believer in Christ is a person who has been blinded by lust and pride because they are searching for love in wrong places. A single-minded believer in Christ is a person who has been healed by the blessed presence of God doing a perfect work of grace and truth in them. His blessed presence becomes a lamp to their feet and a light to their path (Psalms 119:105).

Being single-mindedness or holy  is not about being perfect in our own strength. Single-mindedness  is about agreeing with what God reveals to us so we can fulfill His will on earth as it is in heaven. If the devil can’t get at us directly he will hide behind those closes to us who still have a  double-mindset within our sphere or influence. This double mindset is the result of living with one foot in the kingdom of God and one foot in the kingdoms of this world. A single-minded believer in Christ pursues their healing all day every day by learning what it means in their life to truly walk by faith.

Be encouraged that God has not forgotten about you so do not give up the fight! Like Brian Courtney Wilson says, our life in Christ is worth fighting for! Know that you are not alone. I am along with people you know or may not know are in this fight with you to enter the rest of God, which is the blessed presence of God covering our minds, spirits, souls and bodies. Consider enrolling in our New Life Empowerment Institute for encouragement, guidance and support.

Eight Commitments of Success You Should Set for 2018

Every New Year in America it is a tradition to set New Year’s resolutions that will help people reach the goals they desire to have in their lives. Many of the people, I know to include myself (when I did participate in resolutions) do not achieve these desired resolutions because they lack to understand how to become what they desire to attract in their lives. The power of attraction has a lot to do with the power of harnessing your ability to achieve what you desire. This power of harnessing that some believers understand as the power of harvesting starts with the seeds we plant in order to harness the harvest we desire. If is against the wisdom principles of God to expect a harvest in the areas of our life that we did not sow the right seeds to produce the harvest we desire. The seeds are the thoughts of our mind and the harvest is the power to rightly and practically apply the actions to obtain the desired results.

The word of God tells us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all things will be added to us (Matthew 6:33). God gives us the wisdom principal of seeking His kingdom and righteousness first because inside His kingdom and righteousness is the power to harness the harvest we desire. Outside of God’s kingdom and righteousness, any harvest that is produced is not established in His blessed harvest. God’s blessed harvest includes His power, presence, protection, and provision to maintain, keep and increase what we have been given to manage in life. Another way of saying harvest is results. Regardless in life we will have results in life. However, those results are not always blessed. Instead those results may seem good but eventually will end in a curse. Any results we obtain in life that is not rooted in the faith we are instructed to walk by has a harvest of death and curses instead of a harvest of life and blessings (Deuteronomy 30:19)

I have listed eight wisdom principles of success that we all should commit to in order to increase in wisdom and understanding that attracts desired results that are established in God’s power, presence, protection and provision. The wisdom principle list is as follows:

1) Command your day by reviving your thought life in morning prayer and thanksgiving towards God.
2) Encourage yourself by meditating on the word of God and journaling your reflections.
3) Refresh your soul with music that ministers eternal life to your will, desires, and emotions that encompasses your soul
4) Take a leisure walk or follow a fitness plan to awaken and align your mind, spirit, soul, and body in the power, presence, protection and provision of faith. I call my fitness plan graced empowered fitness.
5) Heal your body with food that strengthens it not weaken it. The food we sow by eating will produce a harvest of health or disease.
6) Join a community that supports your God-given purpose, vision plan, and life assignments. This is important because this is your identity in Christ.
7) Take a staycation, vacation or retreat every ninety days that empowers your whole person as it declutters your mind, spirit, soul, and body. This will refresh your focus to realign in the areas that need a little tweaking because hey, life challenges happen and we need help getting our mind back in the game. This is so important to our total well-being in life.
8) Join the SUIP Wellness Community and let us partner with your commitment in the above seven wisdom principles. We are committed to making each minute, hour, and day of your life, the best ever starting with our 40 Day New You Empowerment Journey. We believe that seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness first is the foundation of us having all desired results added to our life. So, I encourage you to pursue the support you need to live the life you please! Connect and let us help you heal to know the desires of your heart as you harness the power to get results!

How To Reach Your Goals In 2018

Before we can plan we must understand the best way to execute the plan to achieve desired results. When we seek God’s kingdom first and His way of being and doing, it positions us to hear Gods higher and heavenly plan that is rooted in His higher and heavenly thoughts. Every plan in life has a starting point and that starting point begins with the initial thought. Thoughts are the beginning of the decision-making process and the decision-making process is the strategy of how to execute the plan in order to achieve the desired results. If the decision-making process did not start with the initial thought of God then the plan is not going to be a wise and stable plan.

The word of God tells us God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power love and a sound mind. God’s power is His higher and heavenly thoughts that is our source of prosperity because knowing God’s thoughts is receiving our gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23). Eternal life is the higher and heavenly thoughts of God. Any plan that starts with the initial higher and heavenly thoughts of God is going to be a blessed plan with favorable results (Proverbs 3:5-6). The word of God tells us during the age of twelve Jesus went to the synagogues to listen and ask the teachers of His day questions, then goes on to say how Jesus increased in wisdom, position, and favor with God and man. Jesus increase in wisdom is the direct result of Him understanding God’s higher and heavenly thoughts that positioned Him to fulfill every goal that God purposed and envisioned for his life on earth.

When we seek God’s kingdom and righteousness first we are seeking to understand the wisdom of God that is God’s higher and heavenly thoughts which are at the beginning and end of His way. When we understand God’s thoughts we will understand His plans for our life. God’s plan gives us blessed results because God’s thoughts is the true wisdom that sets us free to reach our goals in life that are part of His will for our life. In order to understand His thoughts, we must position ourselves to hear faith that comes by hearing the word of God which is the revealed thoughts of God (Romans 10:17).

Hidden inside the written word of God is the higher and heavenly thoughts of God that give the written word purpose vision assignment and value. During the 40 days in the wilderness, Satan attacked Jesus with the written word and Jesus defeated Satan with the living word of God because He knew God’s higher and heavenly thoughts that are concealed to the natural mind but revealed to those who seek the mind of Christ which is the kingdom of God on earth. Until we encounter someone who knows the revealed thoughts of God, we have not encountered the living word of God. It is the living word of God that is at the beginning of Him directing our path in life to fulfill the plans He has destined for our life (Jeremiah 29:11). When our goals are submitted to the plan of God, we are able to reach our goals because it is already established in His will for it to come to pass (Isaiah 55:11).

Working To Protect Your Heart With All Diligence

Along our life’s journey  as a believer in Christ, we each get the opportunity to become more mature in God’s presence or the enemy’s presence based on what we allow to get in our heart; through the gates to our heart. When we protect our heart with all diligence, we stop seeds of fear from taking root and producing a harvest of issues in our life. In order for us to protect our heart with all diligence, we must learn how to protect the gates of our heart. When we plant seeds of righteous desire in our heart through the gates to our heart, we will produce a harvest of blessings. These blessings is an increase of understanding the wisdom of God’s living word in our thought life, word life, emotional life which will become evident in the actions of our everyday life.

God desires the presence of His living word to work through us to abundantly multiply His presence of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, discipline, faith, gentleness which is the fruits of His Holy Spirit that paves the way for us to increase in His wisdom and understanding; revealing His glory that is full of grace and truth. Understanding God’s thoughts of truth and ways of wisdom working in us is how we protect our heart with all diligence against the issues of life.  This understanding of His truth and wisdom empowers us to trust God’s way and giving us the promises for our life. God’s promises for our life is established in us understanding the way of His higher and heavenly thoughts. He is waiting for us to grab hold of understanding His living word so the results of trusting His living word can become evident in our life.

Investing the time and resources to learn to hear God’s promises so we can respond in His will as we manifest the desires of His heart towards us is pivotal to our daily success on a moment by moment basis. God desires to give us hope with an expectant end of victory and favor (Jeremiah 29:11).  He desires us to enjoy the gift of His presence, protection and provision that make His promises evident in our life.

All the things God wants to add to our life are hidden inside understanding His kingdom and are secured in His righteousness (Proverbs 4:7). When we  pursue His kingdom and righteousness by pursuing the presence of His living word in every area of our life, we become one flesh with His living word as we attract all good things that are hidden in the secret place of His living word towards us (Matthew 6:33). His presence is our blessing that attracts favor as He increases us in wisdom and position with people because of our new found love for Him (Luke 2:52).

God desires us to be one with His image according to His likeness so we can attract the favor of His provision as we rest in the safety of His protection because of His blessed presence in our life.

There is no lack of knowledge, power, favor or resources in God’s kingdom. Therefore, the more we pursue understanding and desiring His kingdom way in every area of our life, we will not experience any lack of wisdom or understanding His will and way in our own lives. The word of God says His people are destroyed because of a lack of knowledge; this lack of knowledge occurs because of us not making time to invest our time, talent or resources in learning how to practically live His living word. When we apply His wisdom principles in the areas of our lives where we feel limited we will experience our power to get favorable results (Deuteronomy 8:18).

Becoming one with God’s thoughts and ways removes our limitations to position us for our heavenly and earthly reward. The heavenly reward of being awakened to His presence in us as we enjoy the earthly reward of having no lack of provision in our time of need. The provision of God’s wisdom and understanding His truth that sets us free from our limitations. Whether we need health provision, relational provision, financial provision, intellectual provision or spiritual provision, we need to understand all provision is added to us in us understanding the presence of God’s living word at work in us, through us and for us. God’s provision is our power to understand the power to get wealth, wellness and wisdom in all areas that require understanding His thoughts and ways which brings us healing and restoration.

Our whole spiritual armor consist of us wearing the armor of God’s presence, which is His living word that is our mighty weapon in God for pulling down strongholds that create problems, also known as issues of the heart. When we lwork to make spending time with God our first priority we put the spiritual armor of His presence that protects us from the attacks of the enemy hidden within temptation laced with temporary gratification, life challenges, crisis and trauma.

One of the best ways to rest in God’s presence is through  spending time discovering the various ways to enjoy His living word as being a part of your everyday lifestyle. The word of God tells us in Psalms 1:1-3:

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners , Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.”

You and I enter God’s rest by positioning the gates of our heart to hear, see, speak  and experience the peace of His living word. You and I enter the enemy’s stress by the gates of your heart being positioned to hear, see, speak and experience the words of (spiritual, emotional, intellectual, relational, financial and nutritional) death.

Thoughts of faith or thoughts of fear are sown through the gates of our heart; to produce a harvest of desires, which influences our emotions to manifest through our actions.  Once these thoughts are manifested the will of God or the will of satan becomes evident in our lifestyle. The more we intentionally saturate our eyes, ears and mouth with the living word of God we enter the protection of God’s presence covering our thought life, word life and emotional life that will manifest through our actions and formulate our desired lifestyle.

My desire is that you will protect the power of your influence so you can enjoy the manifestation of God’s promises in your life. I invite you to join our SUIP Online Community and consider becoming a SUIP Vision Partner where we partner with you during your life’s journey to be who you are purposed to be, as you work God’s vision for your life and fulfill your life assignments.
