Run The Race of Perseverance by Soulful Expressions by Bren
In a reflective state of mind..
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
I have learned and accepted that, when we are serious and officially under spiritual construction, we need to be mindful of our environment and the company we keep. It would not be prudent to allow trespassers to roam free, causing confusing all up in our space. Therefore, we must be careful not to fill our ears with negative communication. Not only are we to take inventory of who we call friend, and what, where and how we utilize our time; we should be taking inventory of our home. You see, it is necessary to be conscientious of the hazardous material that may be right in our own home; which could be dangerous to our spiritual growth and to our family.
There are things, situations; even our friends or family members, which can be detrimental to our growth in our spiritual walk; keeping us from reaching our divine destiny. If the blood of the Lamb is covering us, however, the devil, himself will then uproot from our presence. His shake down, will NOT keep us down! HALLELUJAH!!
God wants to do an extreme makeover in our lives, and cause a mighty change in our walk. We need to stay connected to the Holy Spirit in order to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk; in due season we shall receive our blessings from Heaven as faithful servants. For it is the obedient fruit God seeks. We need to pull out that spiritual broom and clean house. We may be holding on to some past hurts, grudges or negative issues that are a hindrance to us. Truth is, as long as we hold onto what is not pleasing to God, ignoring His required obedience our growth is stunted …We will fall prey to the enemy; allowing him to entice and uproot our lives. Sweep from corner to corner, top to bottom. Go Deep Within! Pray for our loved ones and for our enemies! Learn to forgive! Let Go and Let God! Amen!
As we begin to make the necessary changes in our spiritual walk, be prepared for the discourager and the naysayer, the trials and the tribulations. The enemy comes in many forms and does not want to see you become a mighty warrior for God. He does not want to see you claim your spiritual blessings. He only wants to rob you of your joyful essence and then toss you into the fiery pits of hell. He is working on overtime; especially in this day and age, and will come at you hard with great contempt; with everything he has; because he already knows what God’s plans are for you. Now, be not deceived, mind you, we don’t need for EVERYBODY to like us…Not everybody will.
So walk Boldly by Faith and Victoriously in the Spirit; and know also, it is not wise to believe, that, as we nourish the renewing of our minds in Christ Jesus through His divine word, we will not be tried and tested…We are a target, because we represent change and the Spirit of God. Remember brothers and sisters, when we walk in love…WE WALK IN VICTORY!!
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
In order to keep the flames of the spirit burning within your soul, you need to get rid of the ashes. SWEEP IT OUT!
