Why the post on this?

Cause this is the basic building block on anything in life, not just your walk with God, career, family, relationships, pursuits and goals.

Definitely there’ll be times when you’ll be tempted to slacken, to splurge on that little something to make you feel better. To vent out your frustrations from time to time. Who doesn’t? It’s human to feel that from time to time.

But those are the times if you’ll just put it in your stride and ride it through, punch above your weight and think of it as just another test, another step up in your endurance, patience and long-suffering. Won’t it be better to go through it instead of just living another comfortable but unfulfilled life?

Welcome to the christian walk people, this is definitely a relationship with a God that loves you and wants to change you for the better.

Everything you live for, you aim for, is worth suffering for. It’s worth fighting for it, because once you know what your dream is and what it stands for, how it lifts people up. You’ll charge through hell and blast away anything the enemy throws at you. Once again another verse: 1 John 4:4. For all you fellow warriors of the faith reading this: Fall back to this verse, be reminded that no matter what you’re striving for. God must be part of the plan.

There’ll be opposition, it’s guaranteed. The enemy will throw absolutely everything at you. But no problem, he chose the wrong guy to attack. Especially if God’s word is called upon to fight with him. The more he throws, the more I laugh, and I’ll throw everything back at him with equal violence through the word of God.

Before ending of, another joint revelation from this morning’s quiet time. Jeremiah 9:23-24, combined with Psalms 37:4, a common verse which people encourage themselves with. (hmm, there’s a trend of combined verses cum revelations in my quiet time recently;) )

Thus says the LORD:

“ Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the LORD, exercising loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the LORD.

and Psalms 37:4

Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

There’s an unlocked secret!!!

Keeping rooted to his word day-to-day. The first SOT assignment has come, finishing the book of Faith by Pastor Phil, preferably by next weekend and completing the assignment by mid April. Then it’s more lessons, part-time work, connect/cell/zone stuff and ministry. More SOT responsibilities and even more room for personal growth.

I’m 23 this year. No more time to wait or lose, I need to rise up and grow.

Now is the hour
