Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye received them, and ye shall have them – Mark 11:24.
Sometimes whether we’re a believer or non-believer we are discouraged in our Christian walk or discouraged with life and the issues and circumstances it brings.
Perhaps the year or years didn’t begin the way you thought it would or maybe you haven’t been consistent in your committment to press more deeply into the things of God or the goals you planned to accomplish for the year. This happens to everyone, the task is, will you discontinue to go forwarded or stay where you are? God has given us 12 months whwen we begin a new year, He also gives us 24 hours when we begin a new day. And every day is a new opportunity to being developing good habits. When these habits are practiced consistently you will have the success in God and in your goals that you desire.
Life brings issues and dissappointments, Satan brings stumbling blocks and hinderance, but just because he brings them you don’t have to stay where you are because Greater is He that lives within you, than he that lives in the world. God has placed greatness in everyone whether they are believers or non-believers because He placed a portion of His Spirit in everyone, the breath of God is what made man a living soul. When the spirit leaves the body, the breath of God has departed from that person.
Sometimes we’re attacked in early stages of life with the people that suppose to bring out the best in us through words spoken such as you’re “stupid”, “lazy”, “you will never be nothing”, “why can’t you be like your sister or brother”, words are actions and they will bring forth negative or positive reactions in our life. No matter what has been spoken over you, whether it was good or bad, God has given you the empowerement to change your life if you desire to. You don’t have to carry out the actions that was spoken to you or about you.
Before you were born, God spoken destiny over your life, His thoughts towards you are not evil, but good to bring you to an expected end. Acknowlege God, and He will acknowelege you, pray and ask God for His plans to be in your life, seeking to be in the center of His plan will enable you to do above what you could ask or think because He is greater than what you can ask or think.
You may have went aside God’s plans for your life, that does not mean whatever you have done that you can’t be restored. When we ask God for forgiveness, He forgives and places our sins in the lake of forgetfulness, we and others continue to keep the actions current. Decide what you want out of life, make a plan, and if you don’t know how, ask God to give you a plan. Work on your success daily, even if its fifteen or twenty minutes a day; eventually you will reach your desination, it will take longer when you only put a little time in it, the more time you give to your goals, the quicker you will reach them.
Don’t give up, no matter what stage you are in life, don’t give up on your dream home, education, business, bank account, life-style. God has given you a mind and that mind will enable you to do whatever you set your mind to do!
