Teamwork
Excerpt: Teamwork

 

Everybody is not chosen to do a work in God’s House but those who have been chosen must consider their ways in everything set for their hands to perform. Think about your actions and never take it for granted that you have been chosen for Kingdom building. God chooses a special group of people He has imparted gifts into for fulfilling the needs of His House. You are stewards and stewards have the responsibility of watching over that which is given into their hands. He chooses faithful, dependable, trustworthy, loyal, committed individuals who can get the job done.

 

Everything in God’s house has order. Servants show forth integrity by being truthful, accountable and productive. He has set people in authority to ensure the work is carried out to the highest potential. Protocol is a set of rules, procedure, a code of behavior and/or modus operandi. God is not the author of confusion; therefore, servants submit in allegiance to God’s order set before them. Examine your heart. Know who you are in Christ.

 

Remember, you have been chosen by God. You function as pillars within the church. Pillars are leaders who support, prop up, and are towers of strength. Pillars in God’s House must have pure and sincere worship to God. Pillars work in unity. Being unified is important because we’re all on the same page and our unity is based on the foundation of God’s Word. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand (Matthew 12:25). The time is NOW to give yourself totally to God so that the work of the ministry may go forth effectively. We have one common goal and that’s fulfilling the will of God.

 

Pressing Forward
Excerpt: Don’t Look Back

 

How soon people forget what God has done in their lives. Miracle after miracle we have witnessed wonders with our own eyes. Yet, the Children of God have forgotten about God. His house lies waste while His Children run after the things of the world. Nothing should come before God. There is no peace to those who allow themselves to entertain sin. It is only by the grace of God that we have been saved from the awful grip of besetting sins. In ministry, you must walk upright and be examples for the rest of the congregation. You are not common but have been set apart for the service of the House of God, to the glory of God!

 

Refresh The God In You
Excerpt: A Time of Refreshing

 

Sometimes you may feel like God does not hear you or pay attention to your struggles against evil. You may feel insignificant, invisible and unnoticed; perhaps even alienated. This passage of scripture assures us that God does indeed see us and does attend to the details of our life. The eyes of the Lord are truly upon you (1 Peter 3:12). In other words, we are continually under God’s notice and care. You have to believe that every word of God is true. Give Him praise in everything that occurs in your life. Learn to praise Him in the good and the bad. When you can do his; it’s a good indication that you are trusting in God.

 

Expect something from the Lord because He will hasten His Word to perform it for you. Remove those things from your life which have hindered you from reaching the mark of Christ in your life. As children of God, continue to press your way forward. Have a determination and expectancy which will create positive results in your life, marriages, and relationships. As you walk in the newness of life, know that God has given you what it takes to succeed. Take fast hold of instructions and let her not go; keep her; for she is life (Proverbs 4:13). Choose life, rejoice and give the Lord praise! For, It’s Time for a Refreshing….

 

Victor Over Temptations
Excerpt: Breaking the Chains of Lust

 

Lust can affect your walk with God. If you want to be fee from lust, you have to take God’s Word and not only study it, you must allow it to sink into your heart and become a part of you. You have to change your confession and when we change our confession, our way of thinking also changes. We have to allow the Word of God to have total control over our minds at all times. It is God who puts the desire for holy and righteous living in our hearts. “Being then made free from sin, ye have became the servants or righteousness” (Romans 6:18). We must remember the God has promised us to set us free and who the Son sets free is free indeed. Deliverance is yours today.

 

Building The House Of God
Excerpt: The Ant

 

The ant is persistent. They do not give up when the road gets a little rocky but they continue to build no matter how the wind blows. Likewise, God has given us a charge to build Him a house. In doing so, we have to show forth consistent and effective toiling in order to get the job done. We are on a mission to build God’s House and it will take dedication and commitment. The wind and the storms will always rise, but we walk in the assurance that God’s peace commands every storm to obey His voice. We must buckle down in the Word of God; for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.

 

In building God a House, team members must be willing to invest. This includes giving of your finances, time and talents. There is so much invested in us and when we draw close to Him, He opens our eyes to see His purpose for us on this Earth. The House of God will never get built with hindrances. There has to be a free flow of unity to move progressively. We must work together and harvest souls. We must fashion ourselves after the ant and continue to do the work before night comes (St John 9:4).
