5 Ways to help you Persevere

SOMEONE IS ROOTING FOR YOU

I pray you are persevering through any obstacles you are facing. I want to encourage you to keep pushing there have been plenty of times I thought of giving up, starting over, and just throwing everything away. If I did any of those things I wouldn’t be able to tell you how I kept strong and continued to persevere.

PATIENCE  

No matter what it looks like or how long you think it’s going to take you to get where you are trying to go just believe you are a lot closer than you were when you started. For example, having an event and no one shows up doesn’t mean don’t have events anymore I’d say stick with your purpose in spite of the difficulty. We all come to a point in our lives when we had to persevere whether it was for 10 years or even 2 years. Encourage yourself, because what you are doing now and may seem like you haven’t gotten the recognition you deserve to have faith and believe it will soon be in the right hands of the person who sees the struggle has been real for you.

  1. KEEP YOUR PURPOSE IN MIND
  2. STAY PERSISTENT
  3. ALWAYS BE ENCOURAGED
  4. FACE YOUR CHALLENGES AND NEVER GIVE UP
  5. GET OUT OF COMFORT AND DO SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY

Fight and endure until the end leading to eternal salvation.

Get Ready To Plan

Get Ready To Plan

Anyone who thinks like me is sick and tired of doing things day by day without planning.

Ask yourself: What skills do I have that will help me plan for a better future? And if I don’t have any skills what programs can I take to help me get the training to best fit my needs.

Are you building your skills? Now ask yourself. Am I reliable, do I communicate effectively, do I have leadership skills, do I work better on a team or do I work better by myself, Am I hardworking (what do I work hard at), how flexible is my schedule, and do I have the motivation that will qualify me to win in life.

Get Organized

I’m not a well-organized person myself, but if we plan together and be a great support we’ll be organized in no time. Are you moving? And the house need packing where do you start first? The least place you feel like packing should be the last place you pack especially the kitchen you don’t pack that first. Say, you cook and now you need the salt, because your packing is unorganized you can’t remember what box you put the condiments in and do you really want to go through every box looking for salt. Don’t forget to name your boxes and it’s ok to separate household departments by colors. Let’s just use moving as an example. In order to be well-organized, we should pack the things that are already out the way, and the things we don’t want to take with us we can leave them right where they are or assume our trash will be someone’s treasure.

What Motivates You?

I know that may sound like a silly question. Let’s just say we all have different motives. For me, my motivation is to have a healthy lifestyle and I don’t just mean by what I eat I’m talking about my relationships, connections, spending habits, friendships, and more. Are you working for the company of your dreams? Some people are probably so big-headed they have it all figured out. When you can’t take the vacation you have been planning for or your company doesn’t pay you for being on vacation. How would you view your motivation? It’s never too late to get motivated maybe fashion motivates you having a certain pair of shoes or sneakers, maybe owning a house motivate you, or maybe driving your dream car is motivating you. I’m here to give you that extra push and to show you how important it is to plan because without planning you are unorganized and less motivated.

 

Bible Study Sermon: Injured by Opposition

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.

Acts 5

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

When You Are Convinced That You Belong

Joseph Interprets A Dream

Believe in your Dreams and be clear on what they are. Don’t let nobody tell you what you can’t do. For instance, Isaiah knew what His Dreams were to the point He would visualize every part of them from the time He was five years old living in CA Dreaming of playing in the NBA. Walk in the shoes of your Dreams play out the details clearly and let your vision drive you where you want to be.

Genesis 40:4 “The captain of the guard assigned two men to Joseph, and he attended them”

Have you ever stopped to think God assigned someone to you? You’ll know when someone is assigned to you God will make you aware of that and if not pray for discernment, because there are some people who are ATTACHED to you while others are actually ASSIGNED to you. Know the difference!

8 “We both had Dreams,” they answered, “but there is no one to interpret them.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your Dreams.” Joseph told them their Dreams and the representation as He predicted and instructed the men to mention Him to Pharaoh.

The men forgot all about Joseph and never mentioned Him to Pharaoh. Some of us can relate to this situation in a way we help out others and put them on to bigger and better things, and as soon as they get on top they forget all about you. Does anyone have the answer to that? Like hello did you not help them with their Dreams.

Lesson: When you’re powerless over a situation, commit to God and live a life that is faithful to His plan.

“You can’t make your Dreams a reality until you learn to believe in yourself until you find that moment when you are convinced that you belong” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation
