You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is your only option. I fight the enemy day in and day out. When I don’t think the enemy is attacking my life He is when I least expect it He does. Continue reading “#CupcakesForDinner | GirlTalk on Staying Strong For Yourself”

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word based on talk, but in power
The Power Gifts
The bible said the kingdom of God in not what you speak or how you speak it no matter what you preach on whether its something intelligent, smart, and fame, but do it in power. I’m calling you to preach in power whether you on social media or in the pulpit. You can have a good word, but what good is your words with no power. God want me, you, us, and whoever to operate in POWER.
With the power and authority I’m seeking I’m gonna have to call myself to a fast I pray my faith believe and stand in agreement. Whatever your reason is for fasting whether the circumstance is ugly, but the benefits is rewarding and exciting. Do it anyway.
DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR FAITH GIVES YOU POWER AND AUTHORITY?
Matthew 17:18 KJV And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
That type of faith that can cast out unclean spirits. Don’t that excite you to know the level of authority we seek is according to the level of our faith? I want you to see it like this. Because of your level of faith because you didn’t believe it. Use your beliefs not an actual mustard seed. Some believers don’t know what it mean to have mustard seed faith and if he saying the disciples didn’t even have that. Who are you fooling? Go that extra mile even when you know you have that moving mountain faith that casting out unclean spirits faith.
One last thing some of us know our credit score. What if we knew our FAITH score? Would you need to build up your Faith?
Mark 15:24 Then the soldiers nailed him to the cross. They divided his clothes and threw dice to decide who would get each piece. 25 It was nine o’clock in the morning when they crucified him. 26 A sign announced the charge against him. It read, “The King of the Jews.” 27 Two revolutionaries were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left.
Do you believe they threw dice to see who would get His clothes? Not the normal way to do things when you lose a loved one and divide their belongings. This scripture gets me all the time. I’m amazed and shocked each time I read the scripture. And in this day how did they play? Was it 456 / 7 11 craps, trips, traces you just don’t know. Can you imagine getting your life took for a dice game in that day. What was it like when you lost all your money after gambling? Were they angry vicious men with yelling and screaming its just so many things to think of when shooting dice goes wrong, because if you lost and wanted to win do you now rob the person for Jesus clothes? I mean there’s so many thoughts running through my head. This is in my opinion. Feel free to leave your thoughts.
OH AND CAN YOU BELIEVE THE CHARGE AGAINST HIM SMH.
Hello to my online followers, viewers, audience, and today’s readers I welcome you to this post it will be interesting. I’m being myself the official authentic me. Glad you could make it.
Before I start I have a question. How often do you advance with this new technology? I asked because I want to know the ways you interact with your followers. How do you communicate, relate, and love?
I’m not even going to act like I didn’t want every iPhone that came out. Once I got some sense I thought about the connections I was making and it had me thinking hmmm. lightbulb! is it about my smartphone or is it about the relationship. I can have the same relationship with someone whether I’m using an iPad or a flip phone. Yes or Nah? I make this point because I wanted you to see the value in communication. Who cares what we use when we communicate what matter is our intention for communication.“The mouth speaks what the heart is full of”
Before I post any tweets or Facebook status I ask myself. What do my words reveal about my heart? I never want to come off as jealous or hating. Without realizing I myself and others keep things going in circulation via social media and what they call (memes) not knowing the reason, because when you don’t make a point and don’t have a message what you share represent you. Remember it’s your way of communication I ask are your facts truth? How important was that post to you? Did you reach out and help somebody or did you hurt them? maybe you are just a jokester being funny.
Nowadays we use our platforms for the spotlight instead of its first purpose which was a conversation and staying connected. Oh, what are you too good to hold a conversation? You don’t know me. Well Duh! Be real with yourself are you using your digital space to stay connected with those who don’t communicate with you face-to-face in person.
A call to action. The answer can be to yourself or to the ones that are closely connected to you. What do you believe it takes to maintain a positive digital space, and have a valid communication line? Is having a smartphone and a social media account the way to you? I don’t expect you to be that selfish, and yes I’m talking about with your communication.
The next time someone reaches out to you via social media think about your vibes and how you want to rub off on them.
1. Declare me righteous in my repentance. God is my protector and I am in his favor because I am saved by His grace
2. I trust you, Lord, to save me from those who are against me, from those who are seeking to tear me to pieces
3. Father forgive me for my wrongdoing it is you who bring justice it is you who forgives
4. My enemies are mighty against me lord and you are mighty against them as I stand on your word and watch you bring them down low to condemn them in all their wickedness
5. Defend me God search my heart look into my mind see that I am true. As you see the hearts of the wicked towards me defend me O Lord
6. Change my ways Father I am a weapon sharpened like a sword and the devil is a liar looking for trouble. Father let the wicked dig a deep ditch and trap themselves they will get caught with their own fire on their own hands. Anyone surrounded by evil will be punished for the evil. Separate me, Lord
7. Save me O God and increase my ability to trust in you. I sing praise to you. Forever Amen
Be careful how you speak on certain situations and things going on around you or in your life and then be surprised or mad at the outcome not knowing what things you can speak into existence or in advance.
Some people tend to forget words have power and you can tell when someone is moved based on the things you say. Call things that are not as if they were so. You will decide the power a situation have based on how you speak & feed the situation.
You are speaking what you want to happen whether its life or death because it’s in the power of the tongue. Speak life and prosperity, speak increase ask God to enlarge your territory. Your words create your reality you can either defeat the enemy or invite him in.
When you decree God gave you the power and authority what you speak into the atmosphere will also be so. I declare and decree I’m gonna speak blessings over everything I want God to bless, I’m gonna speak healing over everything I want God to heal, and I’m gonna speak LOVE. You speak it before you see it. Be mindful of the things you speak against.
Proverbs 18:21 KJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Injured by Opposition with Wounds of A Passion
The price of speaking the gospel, and spreading the good news of Jesus, and church establishing with the power of God.
- There will be confrontation and conflict
- The ministry of Peter & The Apostles (Peter who was known for his cockiness. Peter was too good to say, God, I’m weak and when He finally let God use him Peter became a humble and effective leader)
- Opposition – When people are staying in your way to hold you up and tear you down. Speak these words: I will NOT let anyone stand in my way.
The Holy Spirit is very active in Acts it comes with power especially to the believers to help guide and strengthen the church and their leaders and gives the power to change lives.
17 Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy. 18 They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. 20 “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.” 21 At daybreak, they entered the temple courts, as they had been told, and began to teach the people.
27 The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. 28 “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! 30 The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross. 31 God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins. 32 We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” 33 When they heard this, they were furious and wanted to put them to death. 34 But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while
38 Therefore, in the present case, I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God” 40 His speech persuaded them. They called the apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41 The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. 42 Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.
This is what happens in the lives of the believers and disciples that met in Jerusalem. The Apostles were constantly fighting with the religious establishment on who they can serve and where they can preach, and when you think about it, it’s like the religious establishment was only in their way as they try to grow their relationship with God and heal or whatever the Apostles were going to do to help with the recovering process. Slowing up the process keeping them distracted from their purpose. Now when you know God is talking to you and you choose otherwise you will stray from what he’s called you to do had they listen to the establishment they would have walked away like ok we won’t preach the good news sorry about that, but because their faithfulness in serving God they kept pressing on through opposition. They would have been obeying other people and not God. Had they stopped preaching the good news they could not be used by God?
Touch your neighbors and say: Do what you gotta do but I’m worthy to speak the good news.
Nothing can stop you when Its Gods will for your life remain faithful to God and he will take care of you. God will not let anything happen to you as you can see He kept the Apostles and didn’t let nothing stop them from doing His good work.
Blessed the reader of His word
