Good Morning. Happy Friday! You thought I forgot you. (Giggling) It’s been a busy week in my neck of the woods. I pray that your day will be blessed.
TFTD: It’s time to stop
Have you ever felt like you had to apologize for God blessing you because of the few negative voices around you that make you feel guilty for being blessed? Have you ever found yourself suppressing your testimony because the few people around you who always complain are still waiting on their blessing and you don’t want them to feel bad? We’ll I want to say it’s time to stop it. Your life is an example of God’s ever flowing favor. Your testimony is so powerful and your life gives someone hope. So do not apologize for what God is doing in your life. Do not apologize for who you are in Him. Continue to walk in a humble manner giving honor to God and He’ll changed the hearts of the people around you.
It’s time to stop allowing nay sayers the opportunity to rob you of your hope
It’s time to stop allowing doubt to keep you from taking the next step
It’s time to stop complaining about what you see in front of you and have faith in what you can’t see
It’s time to put action to our words and our thoughts
It’s not enough to talk about it, it’s time to be about it
It’s time to stop allowing your past to cripple you from walking towards your future
It’s time to stop apologizing for who you are in Christ
It’s time to stop depending on a man-made system and begin relying on a God made system
It’s time to stop being comfortable in sin
It’s time to stop being complacent and settling for mediocrity in life
It’s time to stop walking in darkness and begin running in the light
It’s time to stop making this life about us and realize it’s about God
It’s time to stop wanting to be the head without first learning how to serve
It’s time to stop holding a grudge and learn how to forgive
It’s time to stop speaking death and start speaking life
It’s time to stop!
I don’t know what you need to stop, but I guarantee you need to stop something
The moment you stop doing the things contrary to the will of God is the very moment your life will begin to change.
What do you need to stop doing today?
I pray that you take inventory over your life. It’s a new year and it’s a new day and I don’t know about you, but I am changed in Jesus and I am going to stop doing somethings that are not pleasing to Him. I want to grow closer to Him, but more importantly I want to represent Him properly to all of His children. Someone is watching you and waiting to see if living like you is worth accepting Christ. Imagine what will happen if you stopped something today and someone starts watching you tomorrow. You just gave someone hope.
Have a blessed day and weekend in the Lord.
