"..for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." 

Fill your heart (your spirit) with the Word of God also by meditating on scriptures. (Joshua 1:8) Find the scripture that you need for the situations in your life. Meditate- think on it all the time, mutter (to speak in low tone to your self); speak the scriptures  at any opportunity.

 

Matthew 12: 36-37  "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  For by thy words, thy shall be justified, and by thy words thy shall be condemned.  Idle- Inactive, lazy, useless or groundless

 

Hebrews 4: 12 "For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest part of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart."

January 2004

 

Do you see situations from God's perspective or man's perspective? God's perspective equals walking in the Spirit and walking in the Word. Man's perspective equals walking in the flesh.  Renewing your mind to the word of God leads to walking in the Spirit.  Not renewing your mind to the Word of God leads to walking in the flesh.  Walking in the flesh is the bad fruit of NOT renewing your mind (out burst of anger, fear, cursing, unforgiveness, etc.)  Walking in the Spirit is the fruit of renewing your mind (patience, love,  trust in God, speaking kind words, forgiveness, etc.).

Being in the flesh is the way you think.  Fornication and Adultery: In order for you to stop, you must renew your mind to scripture, not just saying" I'm not going to do this or I'm not going to go there....".  READ Exodus 20:14, Romans 12: 1-3; 1Corithinas 6: 9-20 and Proverbs Chapter 5.

When you love Father God, it makes you feel good. Father God smiles when you obey Him and rely solely on Him for everything.  When you allow God to take control of your life in all areas, He is glorified and you and others are edified.  Trust takes a relationship that must be built over time with much candidness.  Therefore, start NOW relying on Father God.

Change- is growing into your wholeness with God.  No Word of God, No Change!!  Change must first take place on the inside, YOUR MIND AND HEART. Change from your old way of living and thinking into God's awesome way and lifestyle (Your habits, desires and imaginations).

Fearing the Lord is humbling yourself unto Him, obeying Him, reverencing Him.

Jealousy/Envy

Do you find yourself becoming jealous when someone succeeds or has something you don't have?  Jealousy is not one of the Fruit of the Spirits listed in Galatians 5:22-23.  Jealousy leads to sin. You make yourself look bad when you act on on devious jealousy.

Get personal with Father God.  Father God created relationships within the guideline of His Word.  Who knows the number of hair on your head?  Father God does.  Who knows your deepest, darkest secrets?  Father God does.  Who knows what's REEEAAALLly in your heart?  Father God does.  Who knows your motive for EVERYTHING you do?  Father God.  Who knows your destiny?  Father God.  Who knows the pathway to get to  your destiny?  Father God knows. Who created the pathway you should take to get to your destiny?  Father God.  Talk to Him, read and understand the Bible so you can recognize His voice when He speaks to you.
