The Idol of Ministry

Repent of Being Judgmental
It is common place for people to determine guilt based upon outcomes. If a person experiences devastation in their lives or great harm befalls them, they are judged to have done something to bring the catastrophe upon themselves. Within the church thins are much the same. People receive a windfall [...]

What are you seeking?
When we look at Kingdom living, we must understand it does not look like the standard of living of this worlds system. The world seeks after the things which satisfy the desires of the flesh. Food, clothing, the list goes on. But in the Kingdom our needs are met not [...]

I Declare I Am, What God Says, I am
Our perception of ourselves defines how we see our place in the world as well as how we fit into life as a whole. The funny thing about perception is, it can change. Most of us have heard the phrase “self-fulfilling prophecy.” usually the phrase is used in a negative connotation. In reality, often we make statements about ourselves that come to pass. The Bible indicates that from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, and that as a man thinks in his heart so is he. I t is not a wonder that how we see ourselves in our heart becomes what we say about ourselves and sure enough that is what we become. To combat the negative outcomes of our own self-inflicted prophecies on our life we must take an active stance. We must believe in our heart who God says we are and we must speak this identity to ourselves. That is why we have to know who we are and declare: I am His. I am a child of God. I am His precious, priceless treasure. I am redeemed. I am made righteous through the blood of the lamb. I am eternal. I am loved. I am a man/woman of purpose. It makes all the difference in the outcome of your life when you know who you are.

I Am a Son of God
Your life is not aimless nor pointless. It has been ordained of God. You must take ownership of that knowledge and step into that purpose. The first question that we are faced with is “How?” How do I step into my God given purpose? Then the questions just continue to flood your mind. What is my unique God given purpose? What are the steps I must take? How does this all work? The questions just keep coming. The fact is the answer to all these questions can be found in a relationship with God. We must be born again and come into a convenient relationship with the One true and living God. God wants to alert you so you can step up. That’s the difference between a child and an orphan. When you are a child, your father points it out so you can step up. An orphan has no relationship with the father. When you have no relationship with the father, his guidance and instruction seem harsh and critical. When you know your Father’s voice His instruction come across as someone who has your best interest in mind. Orphans feel as if God is displeased with them and they become discouraged and go into despair. The same statement that motivates someone to go higher can also take someone lower when they do not know they are loved eternally and they have an eternal purpose. There comes a time when we must all say to ourselves “I am an eternal child of a loving Father who gives me great purpose.”

I am Eternal
This mortal body may be aging. Our hair may be turning gray or turning loose. Nevertheless, our inward man is alive and being renewed every day; you’re getting better. As a Christian, your best days are still ahead of you. We cannot afford the time to take account of the depreciation of our physical assets. The value of our life is not measurable by the standards of this realm. Your value to God is priceless, and your eternal value increases daily. Whatever you are going through is only for a moment. Difficulties work in you an even greater weight of glory. As gold becomes purified as it is passed through the fire, so does the believer. The priceless eternal value of your life increases with each new day and each new trial. The emotional cost and discomfort troubles bring, in no way compares to the eternal glory they are producing within you. Therefore, get your focus off of the world’s system (the things that are seen). These things are temporary and fade away. That which is not seen is eternal. You are not on your way to eternity; you are already eternal. Every one of us has been created to live and exist in the realm of the eternal. You are a spiritual being currently having a physical experience. People get caught up between the cradle and the casket when in reality, that space of time is only a shadow in comparison to eternity. You must live beyond this life. This life is not all there is to your existence. One day this life will be over, but you will not be over. Understanding your eternal nature keeps your sights set on what is to come and keeps you from chasing after the futility of this world.

When Am I?
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4 This passage of scripture is overflowing with fantastic content. However, the one word that stands out in the context of “overcome” is the word “have.” When you understand this statement from the verse, you come to a fantastic insight into the way God sees us. God places the act of overcoming in the past. It is not something that is going to happen. It is not something that is currently taking place. From God’s point of view, we “have” already overcome. When we think about the great men and women in the Bible or history in general, we automatically hold those who have overcome adversity in high esteem. Consider David facing Goliath, the three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace, Peter, the disciple who, after denying Jesus three times, went on to preach the message that would usher in the church age. Ponder for a moment, do you think we would even know these names if they had not “come over” adversity? Jesus is the ultimate overcomer. He desires to live in you fully and direct each and every step of your life. The same overcoming Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you. You can access this power in your too life today; this very moment. If you are born again, you are a child of God. You are “of” God and are not an afterthought (1 John 4:4). You are made an overcomer because “greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world.” As Christians, we like to quote this verse, but often, we do not think about what it actually means. It means that at this very moment, you are an overcomer. When am I an overcomer? Right now!!

Who Am I?
The devil may try to cast doubt on our birthright. He may use our past to denounce our qualifications. He may even use our present struggles to convince us that we would not be making mistakes if we were indeed children of God. However, in the eyes of God, there is no doubt regarding your position as His child. If we would but stand on the truth found in Romans 8:14 and declare “I am a child of God,” the tactics of the enemy would begin to crumble all around us, and his ruinous plans would be thwarted. “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him, we cry, “Abba Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.”Romans 8:14-16 All of us who have been born again of the Spirit are sons and daughters of God. Christ is in us and this gives us hope and allows our lives to show forth His glory. This is our comfort and our peace; our hope and our joy. We have been adopted into the Family of God and given sonship to serve a specific purpose. We are not an accident! He envisioned us fulfilling His plan from the foundation of the world. From the moment we were formed in our mother’s womb, God had His eyes on us waiting for us to hearken to His voice and turn to Him.
