God takes pleasure in your prosperity

Psalms 35:27 KJB

Let those who want my vindication shout for joy and be glad; let them continually say,” The LORD be exalted. He takes pleasure in His servant’s well-being.”

You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, holy nation, a peculiar people and a purchased people.

God is not slack in his giving.

2 Peter 3:9 KJB

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

If you are obedient to the service of which you are called.

You will be given more because of your heart being in the right place.

When you take from what you are given to use for the purpose of helping others, more will be given unto you.

Luke 6:38 NIV

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

At the same time those which have visions and dreams, these will come to past, because it and you are needed to influence the world.

You shall do something new that will leave an impression on your generation.

Don’t follow in the footsteps of others.

Go into places where few have gone.

There will be those among you that will be there to help you on your way.

God gives prosperity to the ones who serve and are called to give.

With every day that you rise, you should be thinking upon this thing.

God takes pleasure in the prosperity of his people.

Because you don’t hide your money and store it up for yourself, you will be given more to give.

Matthew 6:19-20 ESV

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

God is looking for distributors of wealth.

To much is given; much more will be given, all because of your heart.

Givers are first born then developed.

Proverbs 21:26

The righteous gives and does not hold back.

God takes pleasure in your prosperity.

If you are not getting more, then you must give more.

Acts 20:35 NLT

And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”

Search your heart, and then change your heart.

This is the development you must do.

Humans are born selfish, it takes love to change.

It takes knowing who loves you to change.

It takes you finding out your purpose in being born.

Don’t be concerned or spend time thinking upon the same things the world thinks upon.

Change your mind and develop it to give to others.

Even though your body was physically born here, your spirit was not born here.

You are chosen to be here.

In this life you shall reign as Kings and Priest.

As soon as you change your way of thinking and grab hold of which you really are, you will think less about yourself and more about helping others.

And as you develop the right mind set,

God will start to give more of the finances you need to take care of what you were born to do.

Live to serve

Galatians 5:13 NLT

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

Then develop your talents and gifts.

Use them for the purpose of which they are given to you.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJB

But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

And remember

God will take pleasure in your property.

Chosen

Do you have what it takes to be one of the chosen?

Matthew 25:1-10 KJV

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Are you prepared for the wedding?

The bridegroom is coming and you must be ready are be left behind.

All are called to come to the wedding, but you have to be prepared and ready for the wedding.

You must have on your best wedding dress.

You must have the right mind set.

You must have past the word along about the wedding.

You must have prepared your belongings to move out of your old place into the palace.

1 Peter 2:29

You are the chosen generation.

Chosen as a royal priesthood

A holy nation of brides that are ready to be married.

God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

All of you were called but there will be some that will not be ready.

The bridegroom’s wish is all are ready, but He knows some want.

Are you prepared?

Chosen people must act a certain way.

The chosen are seen and are known by the way they look, act and what they say.

What do chosen people do?

Their life styles are of Heaven.

Their speech is of Heaven.

There is a light that shines from them that tells everyone who they are.

They are knowledgeable of words of the bridegroom.

They are prepared to say at any moment notice, what He says.

They can do what He does.

They can invite all those they see.

They can perform things like the bridegroom.

They have what they ask for and all their needs are met.

They heed the warning signs.

They stay away from trouble.

They don’t start trouble.

They are protected by the rules and laws of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Chosen ones

Designed to be the for-runners to the coming of the Bridegroom

Chosen ones

They are held high above all others.

Deuteronomy 26:18-19 NLT

The LORD has declared today that you are his people, his own special treasure, just as he promised, and that you must obey all his commands. And if you do, he will set you high above all the other nations he has made. Then you will receive praise, honor, and renown. You will be a nation that is holy to the LORD your God, just as he promised.”

Chosen ones

To be chosen is easy

It’s only hard if you allow you’re self to stay in that same place where you are..

Matthew 22:14 NLT

For many are called, but few are chosen

Are you chosen?

Be Perfect

How to be perfect?

Matthew 5:48 NLT

But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Be perfect in your walk with Christ.

The measurements for being perfect can be easily had.

This is the second part of perfection Jesus came to give to us.

The first was we were made perfect through or by the blood of Jesus.

We could never achieve perfection under the law.

The Law should us our imperfections and not many or any could ever achieve it.

Even the great men of the bible and even those God called righteous by faith or men after His own heart could not keep the commandments.

By accepting Christ we became as he is

Perfect

The second type perfection Jesus wants us to embrace is

Doing the will of the Father

Be a doer of the word and not just a hearing only.

Keep the commandments.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Be like Jesus and have his mind

Meaning; to think as He thought

Daily keep your body unto subjection.

Give it as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God.

For examples of walking in perfection Paul charges and gives the purpose of the Scripture for living a life that leads to perfection by the Word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJB

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Be Perfect

Walking by faith is important also to being perfect.

Without it you cannot please God.

Live a life that is pleasing to God

This will keep you in perfect standing with Jesus.

Do as He did

Walk as He walked

Pray as He prayed

Say as He said

Be perfect

In doing so you shall receive the promise.

Know this that it was not by any doing of yours that made you perfect.

Accept for you coming to the knowledge of faith by hearing the word.

It made you to believe on Jesus and you received him who is perfect.

None of your works made you perfect.

It’s in doing works you show the gift of perfection given unto you.

Be perfect

Don’t look at this as the world sees the word perfect.

But, by the blood of the last sacrifice all men has this option

To be made perfect through Jesus Christ.

This is a free gift

So after you have accepted the free gift of perfection

Go forth and be perfect

As your Father in Heaven is perfect

Reach for it, because it can be obtained.

Philippians 3:12 NLT

I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.

Be Perfect

When God said to do this it sounds like a command.

It sounds like you are well able to obtain it.

It sounds like in order to walk this life out the way would we need to be perfect.

But, again not by the world’s way, but God’s way which is made easy for all men to achieve.

If you should struggle and fall on your way, remember we have God’s grace of sufficiency for forgiveness of sins.

Repent, get up and start again.

Finally, my brethren don’t let the fear of the word perfection keep you from receiving Gods best for your life in walking closely with Him.

Note: This is not physical perfection, its spiritual walk of perfection.

Access

Another reason that Jesus came is to give us access into the Kingdom of Heaven.

As Jesus took the keys to hell and the grave.

Matthew 16:19 ESV

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Now this is real access to heaven and all that heaven can offer us.

As we who receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, we got immediate access into the throne room of God.

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.

After being made righteous by faith we can come to the Father at any time.

Romans 5:1-2 NIV

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

He calls us sons of faith.

As sons we are in the family of Heaven.

Given each a key to walk in and talk to our father any time we want.

2 Corinthians 6:17-18 NLT

Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.
And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.”

As children when we enter the house of God we can go to the refrigerator and eat whatever we want.

We can take the boat out for a spin.

Lay back on the couch in the house of God.

Drive the Bentley.

Pull out a few vege’s from the garden

And if we want we can stay in the Big House for a few weeks and leave whenever we want.

Access

We can ask our Father for some money and he will give it to us without asking, because he knows our heart.

And if our hearts in the wrong place, though we are His sons, we may not get it.

If we want to, we can kill the fatted calf, and throw a party for a few hundred friends.

If we are good sons He will allow it.

If we are not, well you might get a calf, but not fat, and you may only be allowed a few friends.

And if we were lost and then found

There will be a neighborhood block party for our return home.

Access to all the Father has to offer is yours.

What’s your Father wants in return?

Just follow the rules of the house.

Follow the rules of the land.

Follow the plan He has set out for us.

Listen and do as He asks.

Represent the family of heaven well in all that we do while here on earth.

Though He has sent us here on earth, we still must act and be like we came from Heaven.

Represent Heaven well and all we ask will be yours.

Call Him and He will be there.

Now go, but don’t forget your keys.

You will need them at some point to gain access in the Kingdom of God.

Walk by Vision and Not by Sight

Without a vision all you have is your sight.

If you have to see where you are going and touch what you see, you cannot know the greater things to come that God has for you.

With your sight you see what is naturally there under your own powers and abilities.

You cannot bring into this world the things from the Kingdom of God, because it takes a man of faith to see them in this world before they get here.

John 20:29 NLT

Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”

Without faith you cannot move the Heavens to bring anything in the earth realm.

You must visualize everything in your mind before they happen.

You must also dream big visions, bigger then what you cannot do if you had to physical do them yourself.

You must be physically in capable of completing the vision God has given you without his help working with you.

How do you know that the vision came from God?

It lines up with the word of God.

The doors that are open because of the vision will be steps ordered by God.

You will use the favor of God to talk with the people involved in your vision and they will respond to fulfill the vision.

There is a period of preparedness while parts of the vision come to past.

The period of trials and testing to begin the vision is now over.

See those things no more.

They have formed you to get you started on the road to start building the vision.

Yes, there will always be trials and testing while the vision is being built.

Jesus the good teacher will be helping you to develop on each level until the vision comes to past.

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.…

Be aware as always of false visions coming from suggestions from the outside.

If you have been developed in the ways of God, then you will recognize what’s Gods’ and what’s evil trying to disrupt and change the vision.

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Keep the vision before you and keep playing it over and over again.

You must recognize the vision whether you are sleeping or awake.

At this point the vision looks like it’s real before it has been completed.

You see parts of the vision as clearly as you continue until one part after the next has come to past.

Habakkuk 2:3 NASB

“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

You can now understand why sight of the obvious and what you can do physically has no roll in walking by faith.

You do feel closer and closer to God as the vision unfolds before your eyes.

You can feel his presence all around in everything you touch.

This is why everything you touch will turn to gold.

God says that the blessings of the Lord make you reach and add no sorrow to it. Proverbs 10:22

This is another way to recognize whether God gave you a vision or not.

God’s visions are perfect and they will come to past to those who take up the challenge of making the vision come to past.

Continue to trust God

Walk by vision

And not by sight

Psalms for Life: “The Pocket Guide to Successful Living in Christ Jesus”

Vision

Habakkuk 2:2-4 NASB

Then the Lord answered me and said,
“Record the vision
And inscribe it on tablets,
That [a]the one who [b]reads it may run.
“For the vision is yet for the appointed time;
It [c]hastens toward the goal and it will not [d]fail.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it will not delay. “Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him;
But the righteous will live by his [e]faith.

What defines vision?

Vision in this case will be defined as a before seen plan or insight into ones future destiny.

Vision is what gives us purpose.

Vision clears up the clouds that try to hide your future.

Vision comes to say or point the way when you are lost.

Proverbs 29:18 KJV

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Vision is site beyond seeing, for seeing is in the now and vision is in the future.

Visions are dreams of something that will happen sometime in the future.

Vision is to see yourself rich, in love, happy, healthy, in a better place then where you are right now.

Seeing a vision can help you to plan for the future. How you see yourself now is not how you envision yourself years from now.

So, if you feel like you are not where you should be, take a moment to visualize yourself in a better place, with a better life.

Romans 4:17 NIV

As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.”[a] He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.

You have a future, whether good or bad depend on how you envision yourself in the future.

God’s plans for us are shown by visions and dreams to awaken the passion inside us.

To clearly fire us up in wanting us to be on the same page with Him with his plans to change this world.

Jeremiah 29:11 NET

11 For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope.

Take hold of the vision God has given you and give in to the process it will take to help bring it to past.

Remember, you are not along in this venture.

Its God vision and you are only the administrator to bring it into the earth realm and live it out to the end of time.

Using Faith

You have heard and read that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen. Hebrews 11:1

Also, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17

And without faith you cannot please God. Hebrews 11:6

So are you using faith?

If faith is the key to your life’s issues, then are you using it?

Faith generates things inside of us.

If you are not using it then,

It’s like having a car without the key to operate it.

2 Corinthians 5:7

We live by faith, not by sight.

Faith is your key to life.

Using faith in everyday life tells God you are in the game.

We look at many things in life, whether we are trying to reach a certain Plato in our life, by hoping.

Many of us look at the places we want to be in life and say;

I hope I could be there one day.

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Are we look at things we want with a sad face on and say;

I wish I could get that one day.

Mark 11:24 ESV

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

We walk around all the time with somber expressions wishing and hoping.

God is looking at us a saying; come on man.

O you of little faith.

My suggestion to you if you have not been using your faith

Start using it.

James 2:17 NLT

So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.

You see faith like most things it must be developed.

Everyone starts off on the same playing field with the same measure of faith, but we all don’t end up at the same level.

Don’t be dismayed at someone else’s level of faith.

Some will develop their faith at a faster pace then you.

They will achieve many things faster and in more abundance.

God is no respecter of person.

Everyone in this case of faith has to develop and grow their faith in accordance with God plans for their life.

Colossians 2:7 NLT

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

Now God might have this great plan for your life which the world is waiting on, but you are taking a long time to get there.

But once you get there you will see and have to answer why it took you so long.

Also, the type of person you are has something to do with it, but God wired you like that.

So your faith has to be developed in accordance to the way you are wired.

But when you get there you will be amazed.

Now to you who are just lazy,

Start using faith

It will be something that you too will be amazed of how much you can accomplish in life.

Where you could be right now if you just stop holding yourself back from God’s plan for your life?

Me, myself, and I would love to be at that place right now instead of always wondering and asking God when I’m going to get there.

Use your faith.

That’s what it was made for.

Faith gets you there before your mind has a chance to say; ok I believe.

Faith open close doors where those without wouldn’t get in.

Faith believes in the power of heaven over the power of the enemy.

Faith challenges you to step out more in uncharted waters.

Faith gives you sight beyond physical sight.

Faith helps you produce things to come to you where your physical mind can’t achieve.

Faith has no boundaries, it has no limit, but what Heaven can produce.

Faith takes you places you can only dream of.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of what has not come to the light yet.

Using Faith to achieve all that God has to offer you and more.

What you dream about, faith ask do you want it, then us me to receive it.
