Valiant – Hubble

Valiant – HumblePsalm 62
6/4/17

Everyone makes mistakes, stumbles into sin! How will you make an impact on this sin that has been done? David was a man that made mistakes, but he was valiant. He worshipped God and that was a beginning to his journey through devotion to Him! Prepare your heart, through worship, and getting a relationship with God. How you’re responding is how your heart is connected to God and his ways! We wait on God! We are to be humble in our waiting – be humble in your wait and journey! 

Humility is NOT a natural tendency for us! You’re not naturally humble. You’re more intended to be the total opposite without God and His power forged for us! Spiritual heroes can be humble, get done to your knees and ask God for help, wisdom and help in all aspects of your life! 

Big idea: Valiant people are humble people
Humble people are TARGETED PEOPLE  (3-4)

Humility and meekness are seen as “weak.” Humble serve and love on people as Christ would do, no matter what we think or feel. Satan seeks humble people, and you will have a giant target on your back for others. No one said it would be easy to follow Jesus! If you’re not being attacked in your life spiritually, then is your walk with God really where you think it is? What the world sees as honorable or pleasureable, is.l not in line with Christ and his plan for us! 

John 15:18-19 – see below (Being different of the world, is a sure prospect to bring hatred, be apart of the world, the world will love you. God’s love is GREATER than that of the world!). Don’t fret with the enemy attacks you. It’s apart of following our savior! 

Humble people are RESOLUTE PEOPLE (1-2, 5-7)

Despite circumstances, push through, be valiant! Following Jesus can be difficult; are you back in away in fear or pushing forward and looking face first into that attack!? Don’t entrust man, armies, presidents or kings, they will falter! If their not Jesus, they are not worthy of ensuring your life. MY REFUGE IS GOD! GOD IS WORTHY OF OUR PRAISE AND UNDIVIDED ATTENTION! People aren’t going to make you happy always, they will let you down at some time or another! God deserves and needs your attention, you will then focus your life accordingly in what is worth. As humans, we doubt, but don’t lose faith in what you know to be true, Gods word and his promises! He will hold us!

Humble people are INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE (8-12)

No matter who is watching, they do the right thing…. that is an inspirational person! David publicly showed a love for Christ by dancing and singing for His greatness, he inspires others! Live simply and humbly! No matter who you are or your worth or your status, we all die the same! We all have a date of expiration! God knows my worth! God wants to ensure we have what we NEED! No matter how much you have or don’t, God desires we inspire and humbly worship Him! 
Challenge: live simple and humbly, inspire people to serve God sacrificially. 
** Serve God to bring honor and glory to Him! Jesus was humble and meek, and look who He was and His father! You serve a greater purpose, be a hero for others and lead them in the right direction! 
* Meekness is not weakness

* The truly valiant fight for others

“For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. How long will all of you attack a man to batter him, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? They only plan to thrust him down from his high position. They take pleasure in falsehood. They bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse. Selah For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah Those of low estate are but a breath; those of high estate are a delusion; in the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath. Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that POWER BELONGS TO GOD, and that to you, O LORD, belongs steadfast love. For you will render to a man according to his work.”

– ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭62:1-12‬‬

“”If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”

– ‭‭John‬ ‭15:18-19‬‬

Brave – Faithful

Brave – Faithful 
Ruth 1:15-18

Ruth 2:8-13
Definition of Bravery- “The demonstration of spiritual strength in her face of danger, fear or difficulty.”

More important than physical, financial, etc, is spiritual strength! The world is full of sin… can spiritual fortitude give the ability to change the world as it is!? In danger or fear, men and women should have faith acting out in spirituality. Not that we won’t have such anxiety, but finding our strength through Christ is our job, our responsibility! 

This world puts an overwhelming pressure on the secular world on men, women, children, Christian’s! Being a child of God doesn’t mean you won’t have to deal with worldly endeavors… but we can bring on the battle that God will be victorious! Demonstrate a bravery!  
Judges 21:25 – freedom without governing. There was “no” absolute law. 

In Ruth, Naomi’s situation, widowed wife and mother, was through bad leadership! She was affected through no fault of her own aside being lead inappropriately! Her life was impacted because of distrust in the Lord! 

God knows what we’re going through! He’s knows all! Nothing’s more important than your family’s spiritual development! We have an expectation to provide for our family…. 

God provides for His children! Don’t trust a paycheck for certainty in our lives! 

Marry someone that is of equal yolk, your beliefs, or else this could affect your life and how it’s lead. God can work beyond anything we can imagine! Pursue Him! 

God always has a plan! 

Ruth’s decision to follow Naomi, it was spiritual act of bravery, through Jehovah. It would have been easier for her to go and live the way we used to live… that’s easy! Following and leading another lifestyle is more difficult…. 
Big idea: Brave people are faithful people. 
A. SACRIFICE (1:15-18)

Willingness to give up everything you have known and support “comfort.” Ruth was convinced a true relationship with God was more compelling to follow than to go back to her “old ways.” It was a lot of unknown! What are you sacrificing for your faith? (Compelling conviction, what is that?) 
B. TRUST 2:8-13

Trusting God for support and leading.. that’s what Ruth had to do. Ruth sacrificed, trusting, that God would provide. He provided! 
‬‬”So she set out and went and gleaned in the field after the reapers, and she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the clan of Elimelech.”

– ‭‭Ruth‬ ‭2:3

Why does God provide so generously? By trusting and sacrifice! Don’t worry about gain of something… unless God gives it to you! 

God will honor your bravery, you just have to trust Him! 
“And she said, “See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.” But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the Lord do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.” And when Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more.”

– ‭‭Ruth‬ ‭1:15-18‬‬

“Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Now, listen, my daughter, do not go to glean in another field or leave this one, but keep close to my young women. Let your eyes be on the field that they are reaping, and go after them. Have I not charged the young men not to touch you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink what the young men have drawn.” Then she fell on her face, bowing to the ground, and said to him, “Why have I found favor in your eyes, that you should take notice of me, since I am a foreigner?” But Boaz answered her, “All that you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband has been fully told to me, and how you left your father and mother and your native land and came to a people that you did not know before. The Lord repay you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge!” Then she said, “I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, for you have comforted me and spoken kindly to your servant, though I am not one of your servants.””

– ‭‭Ruth‬ ‭2:8-13

Sacrificed- Palm Sunday

SacrificedJohn 19:28-30

4/9/17

Raised to Life

Today is Palm Sunday, our brothers and sisters came for service, and across this nation were dealt with death for their praise and worship to God, and his son Jesus! Freedom is why we’re able to love God and come to Him, but we are and will pay a price for this Freedom! We may not die, but we will succumb to ridicule and hatred from those that don’t even know us! 

NOTHING surprises God! Jesus came was to die for our sins, this was in the part of obedience, the will of the Father, the plan! If Jesus can love us enough to die, how are we joy serving others and coming to others for other in Gods grace! 

There was no unfinished plans from Jesus! He faced death in the face with nothing but words of grace and forgiveness! He looked at his accusers and asked his Father for forgiveness to these people! That is the LOVE of Jesus! He was compelled to walk in obedience! He was tortured, he carried his own cross, and was left by even those that love him! When Jesus died on the cross, it had been done, it was finished! This work was done and would proclaim eternity forever! Sin forever paid by Jesus with his one act of obedience by the wrath of God! All sins washed away white as snow, through the blood of Jesus! Amen! 

Death is inevitable! Watching people we love die isn’t easy! 
 

Big idea: Jesus COMPLETED what he was sent to do, bringing SALVATION to everyone who BELIEVES.

Jesus finished the work of SALVATION

Our sinful nature is going to happen, we will have consequences, but we are responsible for repentance through those sins! We have a sinful nature, we are children of wrath! We are taught to do right, not to do wrong because it is part of our nature! The world shows you happiness and there is nothing but despair when it’s not attached to a Godly way! We have been rescued! Jesus is leading us on a trajectory of Heaven! He sacrificed for us all! Salvation is through Jesus! 

Receive the gift or REJECT IT
Have you allowed Christ to come into your life or have you surpassed what he has for you? There is one way to Him! Have you taken that path or have you walked away!? 

“Jesus gave it all, all to him I owe!”
With his death on the cross, he delivered a gift to all of us, past, present and future! All you have to do is receive his gift! 

“After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

– ‭‭John‬ ‭19:28-30‬‬
Don’t reject Christ! Come to Him!

Deliverance 

Recently, it’s been a rough patch in my home and my near family. I have to admit, it’s been good and bad, and also, disturbing! I have seen anger in myself and hatred! For what reason!? Because it is hurting my family, those I love dearly!? Yes! BUT what am I doing to my family more so, I’m hurting then with all this negativity! I can’t allow my emotions to cloud what God has control over and has had control. Anytime that kind of reaction poses, we are allowing satan, the slave master, to come at us because we’re vulnerable and we might believe anything we hear in the corner of our mind… He’s sneaky and ready to attack. 

We need deliverance! We need a powerful prayer! 

I shared this tonight with my loved one and it’s so fitting, weather you’re a believer or not… this is powerful! Take a read! 
DELIVERANCE <———- (Click for link)

 “Deliverance Prayer”

“Heavenly Father I come to you now in Jesus’ name, to repent of all the sins in my life and also in the lives of my ancestors, that may have resulted in a curse. I repent of all disobedience, rebellion, mistreatment of others, lying, cheating, using or slandering your name in vain. I repent of all perversion, lust, incest, fornication, adultery, idolatry, all witchcraft, murder, and any occult involvement.

Heavenly Father, I ask for your forgiveness and cleansing through the blood of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord Jesus I now take the authority you have given me and ask that you anoint me now as I command all demonic spirits of anger, rage, fear, depression, destruction, torment, guilt, bondage, vagabond, rejection, unforgiveness, bitterness, mind-control, double-mindedness, confusion, passivity, sickness, diseases, pain, fetter and all addictions to food, alcohol, drugs, sex, pornography, gambling, or nicotine to come out in the name of Jesus.

No demonic spirit is welcome in this holy temple!
I break all spoken curse and spells that may have been performed over my life and any curses resulting from involvement with Ouija board, Psychics, tarot cards, Horoscopes, secular music, or through TV, movies or pornography.
I break all curses off my family, marriage, children and relatives. I break every shackle, chain, cord, habit, craving, debt, soul-ties and any spirit that has tried to rob, kill, or destroy my life.

I command my family to be set free. I break every demonic assignment over my family. Satan, loose them now! In Jesus’ name! According to Galations 3:13, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law.

Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am now God’s child and through my Lord Jesus, I am able to cast down all demonic powers and spirits that come against me or in my family’s lives.

I am not cursed, but blessed! I am blessed coming in and blessed going out. I am above and not beneath. I am the head and not the tail. I am blessed and what God has blessed cannot be cursed. I am free, and I am saved. I have now exercised my faith and know that confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9,10). All of my sins have been remitted, and I am loosed from the curse that came as a result of disobedience and rebellion to the Word of God.

Thank you Heavenly Father, thank you Lord Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit for forgiving me and loving me. Thank you for setting me free from every curse and spirit that has operated in my life. Father God, I pray for discernment and for a new vision to help me recognize and resist all evil and all fleshly, worldly ways. I am anointed through the Lord Jesus Christ, and I thank you Jesus for your guidance and discipline as I continue to be a victorious soldier and holy child. AMEN.”

Devotional 2/09

You’re only accountable to God 

You can’t fulfill your purpose and keep God happy if you’re constantly ensuring others happiness! At be end of our life, we will only have one judge, one individual that will determine weather we’ll go to Heaven or Hell! 

Be daring… don’t follow the crowd! Lead your own path! Follow God and His word for YOUR life and HIS PURPOSE for your life! 

Be intentional… are you the type of person that wait for something to happen or one that makes it happen!? 

Don’t follow suit to the world or get distracted… act now… 

“There are two kinds of people in the world: those who wait for something to happen and those who make things happen. God has called you to do great things for His Kingdom, don’t shy away from it. You need to be intentional. You need to live life on purpose. Don’t just wait around to see what everyone else is going to do and then follow the crowd. Stir yourself up, make a decision, and get going!” – Joyce Meyer

Devotional 2/8

Filled with peace and joy…

Don’t fall into a trap of believing the enemies lies! Focus on the truth! The Word! The one TRUTH you can rely on day in and day out! 

Satan will do everything in his power to destroy your walk in your daily life and he doesn’t have that control… nor should He! He is not powerful what so ever! No where near what God has! Look up to God! Speak to Him! Let Him know your needs, desires and be honest to Him because Ge already knows your deepest thoughts…. rest in God! 

Jesus died for our sins and God loves us no matter what! 

“For those moments of weakness when I’d fail in the future. I don’t have to allow Satan to sneak in with questions or unbelief, and you don’t either. Know today that peace, hope and joy are right in front of you. Go to His Word and let it stir up your faith.” – Joyce Meyer

Devotional 2/7

Faith…

Easy to say and harder to do on occasion! 

“Through faith we are made right, and God treats us as His own beloved children. Today, I encourage you to get back to the basics of faith. Know that when you put your faith in Him, you are made right. Live by your trust in the God who reaches out to you with loving and open arms, ready to receive you and love you just as you are.” – Joyce Meyer

We are HIS! He love us and nothing is or will change that. Some days will be hard, hold on to his love and messages for you! And remember: HE IS IN CONTROL! Let go and let God! He will follow through for all your needs! And your hearts desires!

Devotional 2/6

Always be thankful… easier said than done…

Especially when you’re suffering in the storm of life or desperation or even loss! So many ways we could be fighting / suffering and God still has FULL CONTROL of the situation! 

So what lesson could you be learning from all this? A struggle? A loss of a job? Financial issues? Whatever the reason… it’s always a good time for Gids wisdom to be expelled into your life, somehow and someway! We are to fight and be thankful and find joy! 

“In the midst of suffering, give thanks to God and trust Him to lead you to bigger and better things.” -Joyce Meyer
