Tightening your core with the three I’s

Your spiritual being should be made up of core values that help you become all that you were destined to be.

Identity is important because you fundamentally need to believe who you are in Christ. We need to believe and trust in Gods word because we are created in His image.

Intimacy with God is sharing our thoughts and feelings openly and truthfully in prayer and taking a hold of His grace, in order to trust and obey the words He speaks to us.

Integrity is making sure that our private life matches our public life. The world needs to see that our lives are representing God with being gentle, merciful, kind, humble and patient towards others as mentioned in Colossians 3.

Everything that God works in us, is for the purpose to overflow to others.

 

Do you know how to love?

The way God wants us to love is directed outwards towards others, not inwards towards ourselves. It is utterly unselfish.

This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations, but God can help us to set aside our own desires and instincts so that eventually, we can love while expecting nothing in return.

That is why, the more we seek Christ, the more love we will show to others.

Eternally wise

Psalm 90 is the oldest of the Psalms which was written by Moses.

This Psalm shows the stark difference between Gods eternal nature when contrasted with man’s frailty.

Our time on earth is limited and therefore we must use it wisely, not just living in the moment, but with our eternal home in mind.

Not our strength but His…

How many of us were taught that to be strong in this world, a person needs to be tough, strong, unrelenting and harsh?

This scripture puts everything into perspective…it is only through God’s Spirit that anything of lasting value can be accomplished.

As we live for God, we need to not trust in our own strength or abilities. Instead, depend on God and watch the power of the Holy Spirit work in your life!

The battles we must face…

The most significant battles I have faced so far, have come from situations that I was not aware, I needed to fight for.

We are called to abundant living from a place that, if Christ has set you free, then you are free indeed. The strongholds we live with are stopping us from fulfilling our purpose in life and ultimately they lead away from Christ.

Deuteronomy 20:4 “For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and he will give you victory!”

Victory comes when we give everything we are facing, to Christ. You are not alone and when you realise this – you can start to fight. Obedience and faith brings blessings.

I know from my personal battles that when we allow God into all situations, He will fight for us and then you will taste freedom.

So what battles have you realised you need to face?

Lets stand together and pray for breakthrough…lets pray for victory!

First Generation Christian

This verse reminds me of the legacy that both Kieren and I are leaving for our Daughter, Sarai, being first generation Christians.

God has mercy in store for the Children of the faithful and we have broken the hold the enemy had on our families.

This gives me the strength to continue to walk with integrity for Christ.

Thank you Jesus
