Helping those we love is part of being in relationships. We can develop our skills in caring for others, and discern what they really need. Instead of assuming what you think they need to know, ask questions to find out what’s important to them. Allow others to present needs, before offering your knowledge. This helps to love them with understandin…
 
When we don’t understand something, we tend to make it complicated. God always comes to us in a gentle way, never with force. Every day, God simply says choose life or death. Choose joy or sorrow. Dysfunction happens we need man’s acceptance and thus surrender our authority to another person. We are invited to recover our self-image by being with J…
 
From moment of conception everyone has the same destiny. Our purpose and role and responsibility is to harmonize heaven and earth. This vision gives us purpose, and establishes our identity. Perfect love expels all fear. When love has been perfected, it has been expressed, received and reciprocated. Knowing and feeling the love of God is essential …
 
People who are serious about God can truly enjoy life with everything working out for the good. The question is, are we going to discover how to engage our heart in intimacy with God, or we are going to look for a replacement? Rituals, ceremony, intellectualism, culture and tradition can be destructive if we put our trust in them, and they become s…
 
What’s your sense of normal? Our family origin and environment establishes what feels normal, and whether it is good or bad, it becomes tolerated. When unloving behavior is tolerated it becomes accepted, and then the possibility of dysfunction sets in, and we begin to need it as an expression of love. If your identity is attached to others, and the…
 
The master is the one who has mastered the basics. The foundations of our faith include “seeking first” the kingdom of God and his righteousness, knowing that all “the things” shall be added to you. You can’t experience resurrection life if you’re trying to be that “old person”. When you rely on your own strength, you sabotage God’s power. Ceasing …
 
As we are wiling to let go of what’s working now, we make room for new solutions. A mind that creates the problem can’t fix the problem. We were never meant to endure unhappiness, and therefore don’t have the capacity to manage it. We spend our lives trying, so discontentment is the forerunner to transformation, resulting in true freedom.…
 
Staying in peace, you always have the download of Holy Spirit understanding. The joy of the lord is not exclusively about your circumstances, but rather what you’re experiencing in your heart. We can always expect a great outcome. I am sensitive to those around me, and I know how to show love to them, but am never worried or have a desire to fix th…
 
Patience and endurance are developed through the tests of faith. Peace gives us access (by faith) to grace which leads to power. The test of faith is simply to stand without wavering and decide to endure with patience. When our patience is developed, we don’t get crushed when challenges arise. Every time we give up before the promised outcome it di…
 
God instructs the Israelites to “remember” the times they were rescued and established. We have massive amounts of authority when we “think on these things”. The thoughts of the mind, what we are focusing on emerge from the beliefs about yourself and who you are in each circumstance. The only reason we don’t reach our promised land is because of ou…
 
When we meditate, we are telling our brain how to think, thus changing the neural pathways. Using authority, we place significance on what we want to remember, and create links and pathways. Meditation is simply pondering until it becomes emotional and real, and psychological change happens. Recover the value for God that you have in your heart, an…
 
Step into the realm of severing yourself from your past and create new memories. Would you like to see yourself completely conquering sin? Would you like to be non-vulnerable to sin and temptation? We can reshape our memories in such a way that we can’t see and experience ourselves in any situation other than forgiven, loved and full of joy and pea…
 
When it comes to revelation, if you’re not experiencing it, you’re not applying it. As you experience God and you’re being renewed daily, and want to be happy and satisfied, be a blessing! Everything you give away, you experience. Making other’s lives better will make you happy. Follow those who move you towards righteousness, peace and joy. Instea…
 
We think our job is to make things happen, but it’s our job to let it happen and stay in harmony with God. Most people never get past their core struggles or core needs. Environments change throughout our lifetime, but our dysfunction is the same. Choosing beliefs to counteract our fears establishes true healing. The indicators that you believe som…
 
Most people are looking for something to happen “to me” instead of something to happen “within me”. You don’t need a special gift to grasp and understand God, you just have to be willing to walk in truth even when it disagrees with your opinion. The mind-journey says, “I need to be right” and it turns into a one dimensional journey in a love-fest o…
 
Every positive and pleasant emotion is connected and related to righteousness. Our hearts are guarded by righteousness, and this episode takes time to dissect the scripture: Guard your heart with all diligence. Look and see what’s working when it’s working according to how God created it, now apply that to every facet of life. Resting in righteousn…
 
The way we create justifications or excuses is by deciding we can’t do it. On the opposite spectrum, once you start walking in righteousness, fully committed to walking in love and following God, no matter what circumstances happen, I will be humble and surrender to God’s possibilities. When we cling to our opinion and our idea of how people “shoul…
 
The correlation and causation continuum works like this: Something “works” in our spiritual walk, we attach ritual to it and create a new legalism for ourselves. Correlation isn’t causation, so we must be careful not to put faith in a process or formula. Every thought is based on a memory or an imagination with some connection to what you’ve heard …
 
Our western concept of wisdom is “depth of understanding”, but depth isn’t as important as making life work in a practical way. When a person wants to bring quality changes, the moment they attempt to change the outside, they shift to illusion. Re-examining spiritual warfare and the armour of God is about putting an end to what is “illegal” and rel…
 
Here is the big punchline: any area of your life, right now, that you’re not willing to walk through transformation, it’s not because it’s hard, it’s because you don’t want to. The desire for breakthrough is driving your desire for transformation. Everything on earth, in this realm, functions under the law of the seed. Your self-talk is seeds, your…
 
All relationships and friendships thrive in an environment of communication and giving permission. We tend to think that solving life’s problems are complicated, hard and painful, then hesitate to communicate. When we are confronted with something that needs to change, we shut our ears and eyes and cover our hearts out of resistance. When we are wi…
 
God provides everything for our enjoyment! There is a religious myth that says: The more I follow after God, the less fun I’ll have. Man was never designed to experience pain, but rather love, acceptance and kindness. Following Jesus through heart transformation is joy-filled, as we move towards new layers of peace and rest in Him. Feeding our ego …
 
Being content is a state of being satisfied with what you have, where you are and who you are. Have you been looking for your destiny or calling? You will never find it by looking for it. Instead, find someone in need, is there something you can do to help? Find a biblical way to help them, and nurture a consuming passion to love others.…
 
It is a myth to try and do something to get God to do something for you. When circumstances seem confusing, we press on and continue to keep walking with God and following Him. This is the decision that immediately takes us out of our limitations. This is the year on jubilee where all debts are forgiven, but everyone has one core freedom, and that …
 
Authenticity leads to freedom and experiencing freedom has two sides. We are set free out of slavery and bondage, and we are set free to walk in love. Without sin controlling our lives, we have the opportunity and invitation to be authentic because fear and sin no longer bring limitations. With Jesus as the King of kings, we are experiencing a smal…
 
You will find what you are looking for. When we aren’t being authentic, we will never see God the way He truly is. The children of Israel didn’t really want to get to know God, they built their lives around knowing His deeds. We journey to figure out the process of knowing him, but systems are designed to be disposable.…
 
People fall in love with the path that represents clear formulas and disciplines, but true life happens when you start following “the way” which is natural and effortless. In the New Testament, great things happened in between what was planned. Paul tells us to exercise ourselves to Godliness. Learning means doing something deliberately and repetit…
 
People want to know the future because they believe that if they know what’s coming, they’ll automatically be prepared for it. The truth is, there isn’t great comfort in knowing what’s ahead, but rather there is a window of time to prepare for what you will face. People think if God would speak personally to me, I would get ready. The truth is, God…
 
The inward journey to transitioning requires flexibility and adaptability. If you're going to stay relevant, you have to be open to change. Our tendency is, the minute we experience something frightening we make a closed definition and make conclusions. In order to remain effective, authentic, and pliable, we move towards being childlike. The gift …
 
God has not given us a spirit of timidity. It’s not our circumstances that are the specific threat, but rather the intimidation of a worst-case scenario. Fear is a bully that functions on imagined power, but when challenged with real power, they run. Our sense of self changes when we change our perception. When we have the confidence to rest in our…
 
What does it really mean to search the Lord with all your heart? We live our life out of our identity, self-image and self-worth. We can’t function well until tall three are all established in our hearts. Moving past the intellectual boundary of identity and seeing and experiencing your life “in God” as completely yours brings you to the concept of…
 
A person can’t enjoy the peace of God without experiencing the righteousness of God. Walking with God in the good times, not just in crisis, establishes our relationship with Him. When we abide in peace, even in dire circumstances, peace becomes our natural habitat or environment. When you believe who you are as an heir, the fruit of your life grow…
 
God wants to bring us life, to the point where we have no way to imagine the extent of good He wants to bring to us. If we are moved by earthly circumstances, we will not have abiding peace. When you learn to live in peace, you will never revert to panic. If there are no works to accompany intentions, it reveals that there was never any intention o…
 
How you think determines who you are. However, renewing your mind isn’t just about how you think, for that gets into willpower and putting forth effort. Renewing your mind and believing in your heart includes intention and conceiving God’s promise in your heart. Once it’s conceived, there is a capacity that this is possible. Then it turns into a de…
 
If there is anything is true about the law of attraction, it means we use authority to send away anything that is not benefiting our lives and put on and “call it forth into your life” everything that is provided from Jesus. In doing this, you are “binding and loosing” and using your authority as a believer to manifest God’s best into your life. No…
 
Every time you have a failure it diminishes your capacity to try again, so you find a socially acceptable excuse. The turnaround happens when you receive grace giving you the capacity to see and believe. First, gather knowledge, then conceive what you would look like and feel like in that new reality. Meditation makes it believable and experiential…
 
How do you move out of fear and unbelief? God wanted a family that had the capability to give and receive love. If your love isn’t received, it creates a vacuum. The words you are speaking are what you expect in your heart. You are always blessing and cursing throughout your day and your life, based on how you use your God-given authority. Guard yo…
 
The world is changing and entering into a time where we can’t be off of our game. Everyone is experiencing what it means to navigate within the land of the unknown, and with intention, we can learn to live above our emotions and live as an overcomer. Establishing a firm foundation through wisdom from 2 Peter 1, we make it our pursuit to put off our…
 
When we follow the gentle whisper of God’s voice every day, we remain on that path of righteousness where there are no chances of stumbling. Allowing the feelings of being overwhelmed is an internal form of resistance, and we won’t continue to move forward. Like the pearl of great price, if you value God and your quality of life enough, you won’t g…
 
Having a vision is simply developing a clear mental picture of what you are believing for. When that is established, grace works from your heart and becomes power, strength and a capacity to become what you believe. We receive grace in direct proportion to how much we need for that belief. The more we believe, the more grace we receive to give us s…
 
Most people expect life to be hard. Any time we lose our ability to live through God’s view and see what He sees, we don’t experience our wide-open spaces. When we align our opinion with His opinion, we escape the prison of negative self-perception. We acknowledge a reality that is beyond what is possible. As we persuade our hearts of who God says …
 
We think we are observing the world around us, but we are actually in interplay with our world. We aren’t just observing, we are co-creators, and the world is different because we are in it. Sin is any belief, opinion, any concept of yourself, and any behavior that minimizes who God is that limits your living life to the fullest. If we don’t think …
 
If life isn’t looking like you thought it might, or should be, we are called to trust in the Lord with all of our heart. Most believers say this, move toward this, and then default to doing it their own way. Our perception changes when we focus on something we trust more than God. The fight within our mind is to conquer the beliefs we have that are…
 
Harmonizing your values with God and His Word starts with righteousness. Making Jesus as your rock, the solid foundation in which you can trust is the first step in accepting the process. When you are settled and steadfast in the trust you can have peace because you have full realization of his resources, they are yours. Then, as the path is in fro…
 
Truth is absolute, but the application is a variable. My relationship with God can be measured by how my relationships with people are. My perception is my interpretation. Whatever we insist we see in a person, it what we will see in reality, and that’s what I’ll notice. Any time perception has been created by gossip, rumours and slander, I have vo…
 
You can’t control your thoughts - until you deal with beliefs of your heart. The first step to change your doorkeeper (thoughts) is to meditate on the promise of God until you feel the emotion, because that’s what makes it believable. Now that you can believe it, you can use authority and harmonize your present moment in the foundation of God’s Wor…
 
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Your thoughts are your doorkeeper that controls what goes in and what goes out of your heart, and your heart is like your inner home. If a prevalent emotion is negative, you can change your focus, thus changing the emotion. Emotions are based on where you’re putting your attention. You may hear inspirationa…
 
What are you able to do and say effortlessly? Those are an indicator of the beliefs of your heart. You were created to experience life and joy! As you are willing to look at your circumstances and notice if you’re having the same problems over and over again, these are likely related to a belief that is limiting your life. Most people are trying to…
 
We are responsible to guard our hearts and establish our hearts with the wisdom of God. It starts by renewing our mind and resisting the temptation to wallow in discouragement and discontentment. There is a difference between emotions and feelings, and when we establish our heart beliefs, our abiding feelings come into agreement with the nature and…
