The Matters of the Heart

(something I read this morning)…

One area of our lives we believers have particularly neglected is the area of our relationships. We simply haven’t heeded the Word of God where they’re concerned. We’ve fussed with one another and criticized one another so much that we’ve hindered the forces that God has given us to make us successful in this world. That’s right! Strife causes trouble in the spirit realm. It opens the door to the devil. It keeps our prayers from being answered. It even keeps our angels from moving on our behalf!

Peter wrote to husbands in 1 Peter 3:7 to live considerately with their wives. He said,”…bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker sex, since you are joint-heirs of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered.” Husbands and wives. Parents and children. Co-workers. Fellow church members. All of us need to wake up to the danger of strife and start walking in love.

Shed the light of God’s Word on your relationships. Dig into and get a revelation of the fact that we are all part of each other. Recognize that, as Ephesians tells us, we are one Body and one Spirit, and be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of the Spirit (Eph. 4: 3,4)

Let the power of God flow in all of your relationships. Learn to walk in the Light! Learn to walk in love! Learn to walk in forgiveness! Learn to walk in caring and helping one another! Pray for one another! Show compassion towards one another! That our prayers may not be hindered.



21 Days of Consecration

Day 21

“There are time in our lives when we are so bound by the troubles in thus world that we can do nothing in our own strength. Sometimes, the restraints are brought on by others and not our own doing. But, whether those things that bind us are self-inflicted because of bad choices we’ve made or, are caused by the sins of others, the answer is always the same: Trust in the Lord. We have faith in victory, it is already ours.” (Susan Gregory)

Lord, thank you for carrying us through these 21 days of Consecration. We feel refreshed, restored, re-energized, revived and recharged… We speak and declare this in the Holy Ghost. Keep us and sustain us to do your bidding. “Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me,” in Jesus name. God bless you!

21 Days of Consecration

Day 16

“Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, even as Christ forgave you.”

“Lord, wash me and make me clean as I put away the evil of my doings. Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” This is personal. God bless you!
