As we begin this new year, you have to ask yourself some serious questions.. Who am I going to be this year? Who am I going to represent? When I look in the mirror, will I see Christ or will I see myself. The Bible says ..
Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV)
7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
“Eat and drink!” he says to you,
But his heart is not with you.
NOW we have to ask ourselves.. whats really in our heart? Whats really our deepest thoughts and desires? Once we uncover what that is, THEN we will either see Christ, or someone claiming to have Christ, yet not obedient to His Word.
NOW.. Let's examine who we fellowship with..
Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
DO YOU spend time with foolish people who speak unbelief? Do you spend time with people who claim Christ , yet have their hands in the world? IF you do.. you gotta ask yourself .. WHY?? BAD Company always has and always will Corrupt good character!!
God has shown me that the removal of those who don't support your vision is absolute to success!! Heed the words spoken here and separate yourself from people who claim to men and woman of God, yet lack the fruit in their own life and obedience to prove it. YOU don't need them!!!! Your flesh might think you need them.. but trust me and trust the Word of God.. YOU DONT NEED THEM! They will only hold you back from reaching your full potential with God!! Pray for them, and move on. Stop spending your precious time with them. I don't care if you've known them your entire life. It's time for a change.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
Forgetting those things which are BEHIND.. REACHING FORTH!!!
If you keep asking yourself why God isn't answering your prayers.. You might wanna look around at who you fellowship with. Get rid of the unbelieving, negative, un-godly people in your life and replace them with the Word of God!! For the Word of God never fails! Jesus will never leave you or forsake you!
Take some time this week and really examine your heart. Examine your fellowship. Take time to see if Gods Word is first in your life. If it isn't, it's time to make some changes so we can live victoriously this week!!!!
May God Keep You this week as you grow in His Word!!
