Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Monday Readings - Excellence in Character

Excellence in Character by Robb Thompson


The foundation of our life is Christ Jesus and we can only walk in excellence based on our godly character because character is the foundation of excellence

Our character is a reflection of who we really are and it is what gives us credibility.

A person of character considers moral strength of greater value than beauty, riches, or fame because they choose to live out their life by a higher standard. Character always starts out with a decision. You have to determine that you will be a person of character no matter what anyone else thinks because the decisions you make today will determines tomorrows circumstances. The seeds you sow today will determine what you reap tomorrow.

Every break down in life can be traced to a failure in character some where along the line. You must be willing to confront you before you try to confront the lack of character in someone else. you must be willing to do what is right and not what is comfortable because a person of character does what is right in obedience to God even if it means rejection from man. If I live my life to please God I should not allow myself to be affected or influenced by people.

The character of God is our example and we cannot go wrong if we use that as our measuring stick

Amen! Our pastor says, "sometimes you are the only Bible people will read." It is about how you carry yourself through hard times, troubles and the good times. Your character speaks volumes to those who do not know the love and power of God. AMEN sis! AMEN! Love you!

I've heard so many times that your abilities can only get you in the door but it is your character that keeps you there. Having a Godly character is a jewel worth having.

with blessings,

Minister Mamie

Hello Gi,

Amen and Amen! The character of a person is what matters most. When we leave this world, what people will remember about us is our Character, honesty and integrity.

The core of our being is our character. May we shine with the character of Christ Jesus!

So true Tamela
Truly we need to be shining for Jesus.

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
