Satan tries to deceive us by getting us to  believe something that is simply not true! He wants us to believe the exact opposite of what God tells us is true! 

John 10:10 Msg A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.

Proverbs 23:7 ISV For as he thinks within himself, so he is..... 
The things you think in your head and heart is who you become!!

Whats your thoughts, for they become words: 
Watch your words, for they become actions: 
watch your actions for they become habits:
Watch your habits for they become your character:
watch your character for it becomes your destiny!

If Satan can play with your head and get you to believe his lies he wins control over your life!

John 8:32 NASV and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free

John 17:17 NLT Make them holy by your truth: teach them your word, which is truth

Hebrew 13:8 ISV Jesus, the Messiah is the same yesterday and today and forever!

Proverbs 29:18 KJ Where there is no vision the people parish
I love other versions of this scripture Wow so right on!!! 
NIV Where there is  revelations, people cast off restraint, but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instructions.
NLT When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. but whoever obeys the law is joyful

Sexual sin is the most slippery, because it comes to us so subtly and so sneaky we don’t think anything of the small steps in to an affair or becoming sexually active!

James 4:17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin
Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good

The little innocent things we do can turn in to things we never thought we would do or become and in the middle of doing them we will justify it somehow to make it the right thing to do!!! What does God’s word tell you about it, and actually I would get a great Christian friend to seek the Word on a subject you are dealing with and then accept what they give you as the truth. Because sometimes we are so blinded His word will say what we want it to say!!

When you are wanting your life to be better surround your self with the right people to help you see the real truth in what you are going through. Stop pushing the people away that are trying to speak truth to you. Its not that they are judging you its helping you identify the lies your believing. 99 percent of the time that person trying to speak truth into your life has prob walk that path and it lead to destruction in their own life!!

Identity who are you??

Romans 10:9-10 Salvation scripture
John 3:16 This is what God did just for you!

If you don't know who's you are or what God has done for you, you won't change. You will be who everyone tells you to be or become something you never thought you would become. 

You don't dream of being a prostitute, stripper, drug addict, alcoholic, absent parent, divorced, convict....and etc.... But if we don't know our value we will make choices that will lead us into these lifestyles!
If your not headed somewhere on purpose you will fall for anything!

don't try to be something your not, thats when you lose who you are and make choices that you don't want to make!

If your identity comes from your parents, church, school, or what has happen to you in the past, abuse, choices? you will always stay that person you don't want to me!! You have to want to change your life for yourself not to please anyone or to do what you thing everyone wants you to do! Your Identity has to come from God's word and thats when true transformation happens. You have to have a surrendered moment to God and Him alone!!!

Psalms 139:13-16 For you created my innermost being: you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when i was made in the secret place. When i was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my informed body. all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be!

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD," Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future

We don't have to listen to what the voices in our head says, we can have God's voice cheering us on and not tearing us down! The battle is in our mind and we have to get a grip on it and when untruth things come in it we got to remember what God says an that He won the battle, we just have to get in the Word and see what the truth really is!! Its the truth that sets us free!!!

2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every though to make it obedient to christ!!

Phillippians4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens  me!!! 

Thats the voice we listen to!!!

seek God
read His word
die to ourselves
say no to our flesh

P.S. Said beautifully from my friend Mary Margret Scott
 And so I am defined ... not by my past, not by my present, not by my gifts or strengths or ever-daunting weaknesses ... but by the radical, beautiful truth ... that I am His daughter

Transformation Tuesday #1

Transformation Tuesday #1

I want to change my life but I don’t know how is what I hear from so many people so God laid it on my heart to do a video blog series on the journey of transformation. I am not a very good writer but I am going to try to write it out so yall can have the scripture and stuff to look back at!!

Romans 7:15 I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.

This was my year after detoxing off of Meth, I would go on 4 different meth benges  that year and hate my self for falling back into the trap. This showed me I was not going to change with out help and thats what God sent me is people to come around me to help me begin my transformation and that is what I want to do for you! 

First: you have to Love the Lord with all your heart mind and soul, our flesh is to weak to do what is right only with Jesus can we become truely transformed! 

Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied:”Love the Lord you God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”

Matthew 26:41 says.... the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
John 15:5 “ I am the vine: you are the branches, If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing

Fruit is: Love, joy, peace,patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness

Second: Stop being Selfish

If your life is just about you and what you can gain, you will alway remain the same.

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count other more significant than yourself

James 3:16 For whereever there is jealousy and selfish ambitions, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind

Don’t just want your life to change in the bad times!!
You will always be defeated until you want to become a better person for the right motives! Do you want your life to change so you can be happy or do you want your life to change so you can help change the world!

Third: Forgive the ones who hurt you

If you are not forgiving people in your past you are sipping on poison and hoping they will get sick and in the process its going to kill you!!

Hurting people hurt people so you have to understand these people would have never hurt you if someone wouldn’t have hurt them same goes for that you will continue the cycle unless you forgive them and heal yourself so you won’t make the same mistakes and do to someone else what hurt you so bad!!

Quit wallowing in your past and go into the future and don’t let another day be taken from you by focusing on the hurt of your past!!! You can have a brand new start Right Now you just have to want it!!!
Your in control of your future not the people around you!!


See yall next week to continue this journey
