Do Not Get Stuck In Your Plans

​​​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Daily; people may plan, schedule or even organize how their days, weeks or months may be by thinking that they are doing the right thing by thinking things through ahead of time and that is a wise and good thing, but there will be times when a person’s plans may change unexpectedly. Sometimes, God will be the one who intentionally will rearrange a person’s schedule or even change their plans; God may either allow the person to know at that particular moment or God may allow the person to know at a later time why the sudden change of plans. Whatever the reason or purpose may be, the person can be assured that God will always change a person’s plans for the person’s good.

Proverbs 16:1 & 9 says “People may make plans in their minds, but only the Lord can make them come true. People may make plans in their minds, but the Lord decides what they will do.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Everyone Stands In Need Of Help

​​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”  

God blesses people, not just for themselves but so they can also be a blessing to others, as well. God desires that when we see others who may be in need, and we can help meet the need to be of assistance, and not turn our backs and walk away. No one should ever think they could be exempt from being in the place of being in a position of not needing the help or assistance of others, at any time.

Proverbs 3: 27-28 says “Do everything you possibly can for those who need help. If your neighbor needs something you have, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow.” Give it to him immediately.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Don’t Get Stuck In The Past

​​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Sometimes, in order to move forward in life, you must completely detach yourself from your past. Some people are so connected to the things of the past until they become a slave to their past, even in their mind. God has so much more for people, but a person will never be able to embrace the new things God has if they are bound to their past. God never wants people to get stuck in a place nor does God want people to be hindered by anything or anyone. A person should never get so consumed with anything that they cannot let it go; whether it be mentally or physically. Some things, God does not even want us wasting our time thinking about because they are nothing but a distraction, and God wants us to be able to focus on the new things that He is doing in our life. 

Isaiah 43:18-19 says “The Lord says, “Forget what happened before, and do not think about the past. Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening. Don’t you see it?” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God’s Voice Is The Real Voice

​​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There will be times when everyone will need a word from God in regards to situations or circumstances that may be going on within their life. People will have questions, doubts, concerns, want confirmations or even answers to their prayers. In order to hear from God, a person must be familiar and know the voice of God. A person who does not know the voice of God can be easily led astray by other voices that will tell the person anything that the person may desire to hear, even knowing that some of the things spoken may not even be true. Voices that are not of God are nothing but a trap designed by the enemy to confuse, distract and deceive a person. God is the only one that can, and will reveal and speak truth every time to a person, because He is the only one that knows everything about a person and their situation, at all times.

Isaiah 8:19-20 says “Some people say, “Ask the mediums and fortune-tellers, who whisper and mutter, what to do.” But I tell you that people should ask their God for help. Why should people who are still alive ask something from the dead? You should follow the teachings and the agreement with the Lord. The mediums and fortune-tellers do not speak the word of the Lord, so their words are worth nothing.” (NCV)

How Strong Is Your Faith?

​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.” 

In order to move forward and get things done in your life, you must have faith. It will not do you any good to have faith if you are not going to use it. You will only see results when you put your faith to work by activating it. In order to get through any situation and circumstance that comes about in your life, you must have enough faith to believe that God will bring you through it. The more you activate your faith, the stronger it will become.

Isaiah 7:9 says “If your faith is not strong, you will not have strength enough to last.” (NCV)

Will You Say “Yes” To The Assignment

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.” 

There will be times that God will speak directly to you; either through a still small voice, a dream, through someone in a conversation or maybe through a prophecy and while God is speaking, He may give you a specific assignment. If God gives you an assignment, What God is wanting to know is “Are you willing and obedient to say yes to the assignment.” In your obedience is where you will be blessed, because whenever God chooses you for an assignment, He will always properly equip and prepare you before He ever sends you out on the assignment.

Isaiah 6:8 says “Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Does Not Do Incomplete Work

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There are some people in life who always start out doing things, but never seem to finish or complete what they attempt or start out doing. Sometimes, it is just a matter of being patient depending on what they are doing and realizing that everything takes time, and some things cannot be rushed before they are completed. God will never give a person an assignment that He knows they cannot complete because God never starts anything without completing it.

Ecclesiastes 7:8 says “It is better to finish something than to start it. It is better to be patient than to be proud.” (NCV)
Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Controls Your Life; Not You

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Everything that happens in a person’s life is already planned, even before a person is ever born. God already knows everything a person will do and God also knows what each person will be in life. God creates everyone on purpose, for a purpose, with a purpose so that His purpose and plan may be fulfilled. Therefore, when the Hand of God is on a person’s life, there is no reason for the person to get upset and try to run away from God; the only thing that needs to be done is for the individual to obey.

Ecclesiastes 6:10 says “Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Do You Know What Season You Are In

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

In life, everything happens for a reason and everything has its own season. That is why it is so important to learn every lesson in each season so that you will not miss the blessing at the right season. Just like the seasons change in the natural; summer, spring, winter and fall. Likewise, you must be prepared for the seasons to change in your life, as well. Nothing lasts forever. The different seasons in our individual lives are our seasons of learning, maturing, growing up, becoming wiser, accountable and responsible. That is why it is so important to have the spirit of discernment to be able to discern and know when your season has changed, so that you may also be able to know what season you are in at each time in your life.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 says “There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time. There is a time to be born and a time to die. There is a time to plant and a time to pull up plants. There is a time to kill and a time to heal. There is a time to destroy and a time to build. There is a time to cry and a time to laugh. There is a time to be sad and a time to dance with joy. There is a time to throw weapons down and a time to pick them up. There is a time to hug someone and a time to stop holding so tightly. There is a time to look for something and a time to consider it lost. There is a time to keep things and a time to throw things away. There is a time to tear cloth and a time to sew it. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak. There is a time to love and a time to hate. There is a time for war and a time for peace.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God’s Word Speaks For Itself

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Every word of God is true and each word has clarity, power and authority within it. No one should ever add to nor should anyone ever take away from the word of God. Adding or taking away from the word of God can cause an individual to start questioning the authority of God, which is a complete disrespect to God. This, in turn can cause a person to start  operating in the spirit of pride and many other different spirits which are not of God. This is why people should never argue or debate about God or His word because God will, and can always prove Himself. 

Proverbs 30:5-6 says ““Every word of God is true. He guards those who come to Him for safety. Do not add to His words, or He will correct you and prove you are a liar.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
