We Are The Temple Of God’s Holy Spirit


1 Corinthians 3:16:
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?

1 Corinthians 6:19:
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

Our bodies and minds are a temple, a temple where God’s Holy Spirit can reside. The more connected we are to God, through reading, writing, and listening to His word, the purer our minds and bodies will be, and the more powerfully He can work in us through our Holy Spirit.

God can’t live in us and lead us if we keep our minds and bodies filled with all kinds of noise, distractions, impurities, and wickedness. God’s Spirit cannot reside in anything unclean and impure.

What the Bible teaches us is that through Jesus we can get to the father and that we cannot get to our heavenly father without Him, we need Him to cleanse us before the Holy Spirit Of God can live in us. When we have become cleansed and washed through Jesus, then the Holy Spirit can live in us, and through it God can guide us to make right choices, choices that can lead us to Him and into His Kingdom. And just like we need an airplane to get to another country, we need Jesus to get to the Father’s Heavenly Kingdom. He’s the gate, the plane, and the channel that brings us to God.

We are not given a life to waste it; your life is valuable, and you need to value it and take care of it by making right choices for yourself and the people around you. The choices you make will affect the people around you, your children, and the next generation to come. Making right choices is a necessity and is a positive contribution to the society, and you need to learn to do things right if you want the best for the future and the people who will live in it. Let go of any worldly behavior, live in the Spirit, and don’t be ruled by the flesh; this is the only way you can live a righteous life that will lead you to the Kingdom of God.

You cannot love both God and the world, because the world is wicked and impure, but God is pure, righteous, and Holy.

John 14:6:
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

John 10:9:
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.

1 John 2:15:
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

 

Walk By The Spirit

John 16:13

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

Galatians 5:13:

For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.

Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.

Loving Out Loud Is Spiritual Warfare


When you’re helping others you’re really helping yourself, you’re also doing spiritual warfare and you’re winning the battle every time you’re helping other people. So you can be sure that the kingdom of darkness will fight you on this and do what they can to keep you from giving, because they know that if you bless others you will be blessed.

Every time you’re acting out of love instead of greed, you’re winning battles in the spiritual world. And every time you’re about to give, bless, or help someone you can be sure that sudden thoughts of doubt and worry will pop up in your head: “Can I really afford this? Maybe I should wait until later, until I have more? What if they don’t really need it or deserve it?” These are thoughts that often will show up when you’re about to bless somebody else, but don’t let that stop you from giving. See it for what it is and give and bless that person anyway.

God will not be mad at you if you bless another person, and He will always bless you and take care of you if you bless and take care of other people. Don’t doubt or hesitate whether you should or shouldn’t help other people, instead give love, bless other people, and be a light in the darkness. Loving out loud and being a light in the darkness will always be The Right Choice.

You’re Being Prepared For Ministry Work


If God has called you to do ministry, then you’ll have to be prepared for discomfort, obstacles, tests, and pressure, and especially if God has called you to have a worldwide ministry. The bigger ministry you are called to build, the more tests, challenges, and preparations you’ll have to go through.

If you really want to fulfill your calling and destiny as a ministry worker, then there’s a few tests and challenges you’ll have to pass before God can promote you to a higher level and make your ministry grow larger.

The Three Ministry Preparation Tests You’ll Have To Pass:

The Test Of Forgiveness And Loving The Unlovable

Working in ministry requires working with a lot of wounded people, and wounded people often hurts other people. You have to be prepared for people saying or doing things that can hurt you.

Before you start your ministry you will be tested in this through your family, friends, colleagues, roommates, or other people you are close to and other people that you meet. You may experience people not supporting you as much as you would like, people may reject you, criticize you or even mock what you are doing.

You know that you have been called by God to build a ministry, but they do not. You have to learn to not be offended when people reject you or don’t understand you or the things you do.

You have to learn to pray for and love people when they are difficult to love; you also have to learn how to forgive people easily. God works better through a light and forgiving heart, while a heavy heart isn’t good for your ministry. Be determined to forgive, love and pray for those who hurt you and you will pass your test.

The Test Of Staying Calm During Pressure

Working in ministry will require days with pressure, it can be pressure from colleagues, employees, clients or the devil.

As a leader you must know how to stay calm during pressure, you’ll have to know how to stay calm when other people would panic, and you must  know how to lead in good days and bad days.

And in order to do this you will be tested with pressure and difficult situations, and with God you don’t fail your tests, you get to take the test again and again until you pass. And when you’ve passed you will get promoted to a higher place in ministry and more doors will open for you.

The Test Of Faith

If you want to build a ministry, then having faith in God and in yourself is essential, because God works through your faith and prayers.

Building a business and a ministry always comes with obstacles, but the good news is that all obstacles can be overcome and conquered. The thing that the devil attacks you with the most is fear, the fear of other people’s opinions, the fear of worrying about the money and resources you need to build your ministry, and the fear of all sorts of things.

You have to learn how to live in complete faith in order to build up a ministry, you have to have trust in that God will bring you to the right people who want to contribute, volunteer, and donate. And you’ll also have to trust Him to bring to you the right people who you can help, and the strength, wisdom, and courage to help them.

Every time you get a reason to worry, God is giving you the chance to trust Him and to pass the test of Faith. When you’ve learned to live in complete faith, you will get promoted to higher levels, God will give you more responsibility, and your ministry will Grow.

Spiritual Warfare Training

Overcoming negative people, circumstances or difficult days or situations is doing spiritual warfare. You’re doing spiritual warfare by replacing the negative with positive. You’re doing spiritual warfare by praying for those who hurt you, by complimenting other people even when they criticize you, and by not being offended when people offend you.

You’re defeating the devil every time you’re choosing faith over fear, love over hate, positivity instead of negativity, and forgiveness over bitterness. You’re doing Spiritual Warfare everytime you’re having faith and trusting God, instead of worrying or living in fear.

Every time you’re doing this you’re doing Spiritual Warfare and defeating the devil little by little, and you’re getting promoted to higher and higher places both in the spiritual world and the real world.

Overcoming And Defeating Fear And Worries

Whatever God calls you to do, He will help you to do it. That means that whatever resources you need to build your ministry, whether it’s money, people, or the strength to do it, He will provide you with it.

The best way to overcome fear is to replace it with faith and positive affirmations.

Say to yourself that:

“I have everything I need in order to do what I need to do. God guides me and leads me to the right things, right places, and right the opportunities at the right time. God will provide me with all the money I need and more to build and maintain this ministry.”

Continue to pass your test, continue to pray for your ministry, and continue to have faith in the things God has called you to, and you will soon see miracles happening in your life and your ministry.

Do You Have A Pride Problem?


Humiliation increases humility, so if you have experienced a lot of humiliation or embarrassment then you should check if you have a pride problem.

Pride is the opposite of humility, it’s “look at all I have accomplished. I’ve been able to accomplish this and that, and others haven’t,” and “I’m greater than them,” “I can do it all on my own, I don’t need help, I don’t need anybody.”

Proud and selfish people are always thinking: “me, me, and me,” “what about me?” “I deserve to have the best, I deserve to be the first,” “I want to be in control, I want to have all the power, I want to be respected,” “I want this, and I want that.”

Humble people work to bring comfort and peace to the people around them, they don’t argue, discuss, and fight. They don’t get easily offended, don’t gloat, brag, or feel better than others.

Humble people easily apologize and say they’re sorry; they easily forgive and let go of other people’s mistakes. They don’t count or keep a record of wrongs done to them and don’t count good deeds done towards other people. They don’t always have to be right or have the last word. They are able to sacrifice and go through discomfort so that others can enjoy comfort.

Humility brings freedom, and pride brings stress. What a freedom it is to not stress with being the first and the best all the time, to relax and just let others go first and be the best at times.

When you grow your personality into a character of humility, it’s easier for God to work in your life. Pride and ego separate you from God, and humility brings you closer to Him.

If you are feeling like you’re being humiliated and offended more than ever, you can almost be sure that God wants to decrease some of your ego and pride. Humiliation is sometimes needed to grow humility. If you’ve experienced humiliation, know that the loss of reputation is worth the gain of humility.Choose humility, not pride and humiliation.

 

Proverbs 29:23:

A man’s pride will bring him low, But a humble spirit will obtain honor.

 

Deuteronomy 8:17:

Otherwise, you may say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth. But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.’

 

Psalm 149:4:

For the lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.

It’s Not The End Of The World


No matter how dark things seem, and even if you don’t understand the things that are happening right now, it doesn’t mean that God isn’t still working in your life.

If God wasn’t still working in your life, then you wouldn’t read this message right here right now.

Our darkest hour with God is better than the brightest day ever would be without Him, and any dark hour with God is a time of great growth and learning.
You can either choose to go crazy from worrying, analyzing, and trying to figure out what happened, why it happened, or what you could have done differently to avoid it. Or you can simply choose to trust God.

You can trust that God is working out the situation for the better and for your own good. Trust God, and start praying for the strength needed to overcome this period and situation in your life, and look forward to seeing God working miracles in your life.

Isaiah 54:7:
For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back.

Joshua 1:5:
No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD, IT’S JUST ANOTHER LESSON LEARNED.
