Christ has given US the keys! You have power and authority in HIM! WHAT are you permitting and forbidding in your life???? USE YOUR KEYS! I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19

Feed the spirit with a HEALTHY DIET of SOUL FOOD, the ORGANIC, LIVING WORD OF GOD and QUIT eating the "CANDY" of CARNALITY!!! Today, FORGIVE & MOVE ON when the temptation arises for offense. You may feel discounted or rejected, but dont take it as a PERSONAL ASSAULT. This is the work of the enemy to get you to open the door to SIN. This is when you must RETURN GOOD for evil & STAND on RIGHTEOUS GROUND. The time of your GREATEST VICTORY should also be the time of your MOST MERCY! CHOOSE to give His GRACE & LOVE to those who didn't want you to win... ♥

"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."~Galations 5:22-23

The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 2nd Peter 2:9

I firmly believe that meeting together with our brothers and sisters in Christ can and will bring about a radical change in our perspective.

Tell me, have you ever gone to church feeling a little disconsolate or depressed and found, as you have looked round and seen people who have gone through much greater struggles than you, that your heart has been strangely lifted and your burdens have seemed lighter?

You see a womn who has gone thru much pain, maybe hurt recently, and as you watch her singing praises to God you see your problem in a different light.

You notice a man whom you know has gone through the most horrifying experiences, but he is still there worshipping and magnifying God. This again works to change your perspective.

Paul reminds us in 1st Corinthians 10:13: “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

One of the things the devil delights to do is to persuade us that the trial we are going through is unique. When you come in contact with others in the family of God you begin to see that is just not true.

You rub shoulders with people you know suffered extremely painful experiences - experiences more distressing than you have ever faced. Yet they still continue to sing God's praises.

You see, in the church we have an opportunity to evaluate 1st Corinthians 10:13 in a clear light. The truth is seen in its highest form. Others have gone through what we have gone through, and the knowledge of this helps us in our suffering.

Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed, and the ears of those who hear will give attention. Isaiah 32:3

Have you ever wondered why some people succeed and others fail?
Maybe it's because the people who are successful see things that others don't.

A naturalist did some research  and noticed that meat frozen in weather 40-degrees-below-zero tasted better than meat that had been frozen slowly. When he got back home, he experimented with quick-freezing a variety of foods. Eventually, he started a business for himself.

His name was Clarence Birdseye, and, in 1929, he sold his business for twenty-two million dollars. I wonder how many opportunities I've missed by not keeping my eyes open?

Could I have been rich or famous? Well, probably not. The Lord knows that I'm really not designed for those kinds of gifts.

Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit has opened my eyes to the one thing... the one Person I need: Jesus.

Worth more than the Birdseye company in 1929, Jesus' suffering, sacrifice, and resurrection gives me a wealth that cannot be bought or sold; a wealth that will never spoil.

It's a wealth I pray you have. If you do, won't you please pray for someone who doesn't know Jesus as his Lord? Please, keep your eyes and your heart open to witness to those around you.

“But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!” John 9:25

Very few Christians are great theologians, and none of us have every verse of the Bible memorized—but we all have a testimony. We all have the story of how Jesus came into our lives.

We may not be experts, but like the blind man whom Jesus healed, we can all say, “But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!”

Every Christian can say, “Here is what Jesus did for me.” And you know what? Your testimony is a great place to start.

The apostle Paul, who was a great intellectual and a brilliant orator, would often begin with his testimony when presenting the message of the gospel. Why would Paul start with his testimony? It built common ground between him and the people to whom he was preaching.

When you share the story of how you came to Jesus, you are in a sense saying, “I have been where you are. And let me tell you about the way I used to think, the way I used to be—the way that my life was. Now let me tell you about what He has done for me.”

A testimony helps a person to understand that you weren’t born a Christian. It helps them to see that there is a bridge for them, a way for them to come to Him.

Testimonies prove that anyone can change through the transforming power of Jesus Christ.

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7

When Jesus walked this earth, He blew the cover off the religious elite of the day: the Pharisees who smugly thought that if they did not commit certain sins, they were okay.

But somehow, they had rationalized that they could do these things in their minds and it was not sinful. Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Matthew 5:27-28.

What was Jesus pointing out to these men, and to us as well? He was emphasizing again and again the importance of our minds, our hearts, and our attitudes. That’s because sin is not merely a matter of actions and deeds. It is something within the heart and the mind that leads to the action.

Sin deceives you into thinking that because you have not committed the act, you’re okay. In reality, if you keep thinking about it, it may be only a matter of time until that thought becomes an action. Even if it doesn’t, that thought is still spiritually destructive.

So we need to go out of our way as Christians to protect our minds and our thoughts. Satan recognizes the value of first getting a foothold in the realm of our thoughts and imaginations, because he knows this will prepare the way for that thought to eventually become an action.

As it has been said, “Sow a thought, reap an act. Sow an act, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap a destiny.” It all starts with a thought.

So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Matthew 25:20–21

As a young man, John Rolle was a successful accountant. One day, he was talking with a Christian friend who told him, “Peter, it is possible to have a saved soul and a wasted life.”

Rolle, couldn’t forget those words. He knew he was guilty of having a saved soul and a wasted life. He prayed, “Lord, I want Your will for me. I don’t want to waste my life. I dedicate it to You.”

God redirected his course, and Rolle ultimately became an evangelist, pastor, author, president of a missions organization, and a dean of a Bible school. He served the Lord until the end of his life.

It’s possible that some of us could have a saved soul but a wasted life. In other words, you have the assurance of heaven, but you’re wasting your life here on earth. You’re not serving Jesus to the fullest.

Every person’s life is filled with opportunities to serve the Lord. What we do with the opportunities is the big question. Do we let them slip by? Or do we seize the day and serve the Lord so that we can hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant”?

If you desire to hear those words, then make a change in your life like John Rolle made. Take what God has given you and make the most of it.

You might say to yourself, “But I don’t have much.” You have everything you need. You have God’s most precious gift, Jesus Christ. You have the Holy Spirit to empower you.

God has instilled in your life certain gifts for His glory. That means your life is valuable. Take what God has given you and dedicate it to His glory. Just watch what He will accomplish.

A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is! Proverbs 15:23

We find a powerful truth in this verse. Notice that this verse talks about not just a word spoken, but a word spoken in due season—at the proper time. How good it is!

It is critical for words of encouragement, words of comfort, words of counsel, words of wisdom, and even words of correction to be spoken in due season. Timing is just as important as content.

I read once about a lady who invited family and friends over for Thanksgiving dinner. When they received the invitation, they let her know that they were going to come. In fact, they were looking forward to the day.

She really put on quite a spread. She baked pies and bread; she cooked a turkey with all of the trimmings—an incredible meal. When the time came for her guests to arrive, she lit candles and put the finishing touches on decorating the house.

The only problem was, no one showed up. Then she remembered the calendar she had picked up from a local business. On that calendar it said that Thanksgiving was on the 21st rather than on the last Thursday of the month as it normally is every year. At the time she thought it was strange, but she figured that they must have moved the holiday.

She had prepared her sumptuous banquet a week early! The content was great but the timing was not so great.

So it is with our words. They can be just the right words, perfect for the need of the person, but if not delivered at the right time, they can fall short.

Be sensitive to pick the right time to speak as well as the right words to say…….Pause…….Now read this devotion again slower this time and think about it....please.
