It is Saturday, and I am on a mission. The mission is to locate some more BLUE ZIPLOC BAGS to use for the missionary “treat” bags that my Women’s Ministry uses to send with our missionaries that travel overseas. I am determined that there has to be somewhere else in this city that sells them. So I am off on my mission today for God’s Kingdom to locate these ziploc bags, I know I can find them somewhere. Until I return….. have a blessed Saturday! Walk in God’s Destiny for your life.

We all talk about change, but what are we really doing individually as well as corporately within the Body of Christ to initiate a global transformation where racial, gender, and nationality divisions are completely dissolved. How do we essentially take the initial steps to actually break down the barriers and MAKE IT HAPPEN? I believe all the answers we need are present right in the Word of God.
The Word of God gives critical insight into how we should begin making this spiritual revolution a reality in our daily life.
Colossians 3:8-11 in the Amplified Bible tells us starting with verse 8:
“But now put away and rid yourselves [completely] of all these things: anger, rage, bad feeling toward others, curses and slander, and foulmouthed abuse and shameful utterances from your lips!
(9) Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices.
(10) And have clothed yourselves with the new [spiritual self], which is [ever in the process of being] renewed and remolded into [fuller and more perfect knowledge upon] knowledge after the image (the likeness) of Him Who created it.
(11)[In this new creation all distinctions vanish.] There is no room for and there can be neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, [nor difference between nations whether alien] barbarians or Scythians [who are the most savage of all], nor slave or free man; but Christ is all and in all [everything and everywhere, to all men, without distinction of person].
These four scriptural verses contain a divine set of instructions for all within the Body of Christ. If we are true believers in God’s Word, then we must be obedient to follow what His Holy Word commands us to do. The Gospel has the power to tear down any and all barriers. Paul was expressed the importance of not focusing on the categories of race, ethnic background, gender, socioeconomic status, or an individual’s background, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ defines us all as being one class of believers.
We must embrace all people of every race, every culture, and from every nation. Remember, “Christ is all, and in all.” [Colossians 3:10 KJV]
Okay— we should always take a moment to celebrate even the little things in life!!!
Well I am celebrating 300 hits to my blog!!!!!!!
Yeah, yeah, I know— I am sure some of you think, so what, 300 is nothing!!! It may mean nothing to you, but to me it is a landmark.
We should all be using our lives to make history for God’s Kingdom! Celebrate the person that God has uniquely created you to be. Use the gifts that He has placed within you, to bring Him Glory.
Keep walking in your divine destiny, and remember with God all things are possible!
“Save now, we beseech You, O Lord; send now prosperity, O Lord, we beseech You, and give to us success!”
-Psalms 118:25 (Amp)
The Lord is the only One who can give us True and Everlasting prosperity and success. It took me going through some quick passing success and failures as I was growing up to realize this concept. Once I did grasp hold of seeking God first in every area of my life and career, then all the other details of life simply feel into place. However, seeking Him first is the one step that I encourage you not to omit. When we handle God’s business first, then He takes care of our business in the process. If you are at a point where you do not know what to do, then just ask Him to guide you. Then be prepared and ready to do what He instructs you to do! Then as you start doing what He has told you to do, you will walk right into your blessing.
Okay well after church yesterday, I thought I would take my chihuahua “Ms. Precious” for a long walk. So at my apartment complex we have a small pond that I have actually never taken the time to truly enjoy the beauty of it’s existence. So as I am snapping random pictures of the geese, flowers, and water with my digital camera, I realize the geese are moving at a rather fast trot towards me and my normally “vicious” barking chihuahua. However, apparently Ms. Precious figured this was a battle that she did not want any part of on her peaceful Sunday afternoon. (Bad time for her to decide that she did not know how to bark, although she barks at little bugs that fly around her head; thanks Ms. Precious!!) Literally seconds after I snapped this picture, these geese started hissing and snapping their beaks at us. They chased us back up to the sidewalk, and I have never seen geese run so fast! Or perhaps Ms. Precious and I were just running too slow.
So this little incident started me thinking about how we as Christians should always be conditioned, ready, and prepared before the enemy tries to attack us. How do we prepare for an attack? First, it is vital to fill ourselves with God’s Word DAILY!!!!! Prepare yourself in advance, so you can discern in the spirit any scheme or tactic which the enemy is using to come against you. The second key is to pray continually, all day everyday. Pray while you are at work, in your car, cooking in the kitchen, before going into a meeting, while showering, as you are walking to your car, when you are chatting on the phone, when putting on make-up, as you are getting your nails done, or when God wakes you up —- YOU CAN AND SHOULD PRAY ANYTIME!!!!! By simply taking the time to get in God’s Word and pray without ceasing, we prepare ourselves for any attack or scheme that the enemy may devise and use to distract us from pursuing God’s divine destiny for our lives.
Abundant Blessings to all my brothers and sisters in Christ! Walk out your divine destiny!
I won’t stop….
I won’t stop serving the Lord, and giving Him all the Glory.
I won’t stop sharing until everyone knows my story.
I won’t stop praising and bowing down in worship to Him.
I won’t stop trusting that He is my only true friend.
I won’t stop giving even if I give out my last.
I won’t stop praying and remembering to fast.
I won’t forget how He gives me His grace and mercy so freely.
I won’t stop receiving His correction and love so abundantly.
I won’t stop even when the enemy attempts to attack.
I won’t stop because my Almighty Father has got my back.
I won’t stop expecting a harvest when I sow my seeds.
I won’t stop because He already knows what I need.
