Stumbling Block or Building Block?

 

Are you using your obstacles as Stumbling blocks or Building blocks?

Use your Stumbling blocks as leverage and use Building blocks to rise to the occasion to the next level in God!

Remember in Ephesians 6: 12-13, God tells us that “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

Whatever is oppressing you, you can overcome it! YOU are victorious!  The enemy wants us to be in agreement with the lies over our lives, not the word of God declares.  The enemy will have us believing we have no way of escape, this is A LIE!

For God tells us that He will make a way of escape for His people. Remember God’s Time is not OUR Time!  For there is no temptation that should overtake us that is not common to man.  God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond Your ability, but the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it (1Corinthians 10:13 ESV).  It makes no difference what is oppressing you, God is not limited in His ability to save us for us to hold a festival, and worship God, not just for us to have freedom.

God is going to get US out of this.  Declare and Affirm this statement over yourself and your family, “God is going to get me out of this!  So when God delivers US, make sure WE acknowledge that HE and HE alone lifted the bondages and strongholds off our lives.  Now that we are delivered, we have to consistently put (God’s word) in its place so that  WE will go back worse than we were.

God has blessings beyond of human comprehension that will only come when we come out of OUR flesh, and worship GOD!

May the LORD provide clarity over each article that is published to be effective for the body of Christ to grow and mature in HIM so that we can walk in purpose and in love!

Know Your State!

Greetings on Today!

The word given to me this morning is we need to know our physical state(location) and spiritual state (mental condition) each day.  As God knows all and sees all, but He holds us accountable to believe Him and trust Him with all our issues and keep our minds stayed on him.  It is very easy to get distracted in life; however, in Philippians  Chapter 2, the focus is Imitating Christ’s Humility.  It goes on to tell us that God is concerned about our state.

The word State in this article is considered to be a  circumstance, condition, or position.  God expects us to live and perform in our lives within His image.  We are to have the same mindset as Christ, the same perspective in all things.  This is also expounded on in Genesis 1:26-31.  “Let Us Make Man in Our Image.”

What is your posture towards your current position?  Are we content in all things? Are we doing things without murmuring or complaining?

I know it is not easy and yes, it does take practice to create a more succinct (in tune) relationship with God.  But by not complaining or murmuring, you become blameless and pure in the sight of God (Phil. 2:14-15).  By doing this God says we will shine,  we are the Salt of this very earth.  Let us not just look out for our own welfare, but show genuine concern and follow through with others.  Your blessing to others may not be financial means right now, but maybe you could share an encouraging word, or just listen for the cries of others.  Sometimes people cover up their cries, their hurts, their pains, because indirectly he/she have learned through societal rules that showing vulnerability about one’s personal life could be dangerous; however, our vulnerability may propel someone out there waiting for a breakthrough, the opportunity to be honest with themselves so that they can proceed forward.

Showing others your wounds gives courage to those who want to be free mentally, to feel, and share their testimony.  Your testimony may save someone’s life.  Pray, listen, and then GO into all the earth sharing the good news!  God loves you today, be blessed!

Love,

Is It Real?

“Is It Real?”

As  I ponder some of the things that I have made it through, I realize that I was fearful or had fear (false evidence appearing real) during this process.

What is your thorn today?  Is those thorn distractions attempting to compromise you into believing the lies?  Stop, Think, Look Up, and Pray always.

I was listening to an encouraging word the other day and the Pastor stated that “Our tests are designed to challenge our weaknesses, so that they will not remain our weaknesses!”

We cannot give into fear or apprehension, but we must rise above it all and fly above our circumstances, as we are not defined by our circumstances.   We should tell our circumstance about our Mighty God who saves, heals, and delivers His people from the snare of the Fowler.

Each day we live, there are more things are added to the list to complete, but to whom much is given, much is required.  So do not give up, God is still in the healing business.

Feel free to subscribe, comment, or message me, Thank you.  Blessings!

Change is a Level Up!

The action word today is Change.  This word I have been given was a result of an incident I experienced.

I was thinking about what changes our current situation or challenges that lies before us.  The answer, the change that comes from within at the root of it. Sure money may would fix the problem but would it fix the root of the problem, which may be our stewardship skills.

The root of problem is sometimes not the challenge itself, it may God needs to get our attention, humble us, or the fact that we may need to take inventory over our S.U.T.,  our systems, our understanding, our thinking, our perspectives on life, our thought life, our prayer life, our self-acceptance which is how God sees us, increase our faith, and CANCEL out anything that drags us down or attempt to back us up into past proclivities or familiar spirits.

I even wanted to touch on the fact that everyone (even the closest ones) may not see you as God sees you, you still have to press on towards the high calling of Jesus Christ.  Because God will do what He said He will do, with or without the naysayers’ approval or denial.  Sometimes it will hit home because it is a family member that you may have issues with or possibly your best friend or even your spouse; however, God tells in His Word that we are not to put our confidence in our own flesh or  warns us against confidence in men (including women).

Resist the devil, and he will flee (reference is James 4:7).  Remember the change makes our anointing oil flow purer and sweeter in our lives.  Receive and believe this today in the name of Jesus Amen!

Hope you are having a blessed day!

 

Love,

More Than Enough!

Blessings to you today!

I wanted to wish everyone a blessed and prosperous New Year.  I also just wanted to share with you the topic given to me today called More Than Enough.

I want to remind you that God is still in control of all things.  Who is more than enough to handle our challenges for us through our activation of faith and hope in action.  The answer, Jesus is more than enough!

Most times we are battling things in our mind that tries to supersede what we know about GOD as verified in  2 Corinthians 10:5 King James Version (KJV) below:

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

It is with our MIND that we serve the LORD! Remember God loves you as you approach this new year and that it is with our minds, that we serve God.  Truly Jesus is the only way up!

I also must say that the LORD has fixed my car situation for now!  I could not leave that out.  I have a working vehicle and God is fixing the rest!

Have a safe and prosperous 2016 to you and your family!  Be blessed!

Love,

Vanessa

Did That Take You Out?

 

Bless God I woke up this morning in my right mind, with the activity of my limbs, did you?

I got ready to go to work this morning, got in my car on my way to work, and my car broke down.  This is not the first time the car has broken down, BUT GOD!  What makes this bad is that the manager at the car lot just told me less than two weeks ago, that nothing was wrong with my car, and assessed me a  $150 fee for checking my car out.  They did not even fix anything.

According to God’s word, God says we shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that preceded out of the mouth of God; therefore, we should stand on God’s word at all time and understand that all things work together for our good and for the Glory of our God.

God takes care of His children when we are faithful, when we are imperfect, when we may fall short, even me.  You can take this to any bank, God never fails!

Have you or are you facing a challenging situation in your life?

Would you agree that God is intentional on blessing His children with more than enough?

Don’t give up on God, Today something good and major is about to happen!

Bishop Morton ministered at our church this past Sunday.  His message “It’s done through your Praise!” He goes on to say our spirit is in competition with our emotions, our intelligence, our understanding.  We must yield to God’s Holy Spirit not our mind.

Now mind you I have been listening to Bishop Morton’s message all week, and then this incident with my car happened today.  Our life definitely can go either way, it depends on our perspective!

Worship Him and Praise Him in Spirit and Truth, this will definitely be the best place to start to process through difficult times.  So start Praising and watch God start releasing your blessings!

Please share you story or comment, hope you are having a blessed day!

Why Stimulation to Success?

 

Praise the LORD!  I am pleased to announce and introduce Stimulation to Success Ministry!  Stimulation to Success Blog is an interactive tool that has been birthed through meditation on God’s word and purpose for my life, as well as prayer,  and  two-way communication with God on how I am to use my gifts to encourage others, and the different ways to help people with day to day pressures, challenges, and struggles by spiritual encouragement, listening, and by action. At times the word of our testimony could possibly save a life, friend, and/or a family.

Stimulation to Success Ministries is here to serve and assist you through informal dialogue with things that could possibly hinder one from discovering purpose, and walking in our purpose while using the many tools, trinkets, and treasures we have available to be cultivated on the inside of us, both realized and sometimes unrealized treasures.  When we are obedient to God,  he will take care of the rest.

Stimulating someone is simply to encourage someone or something to start or progress even further.  My goal is to encourage others to believe in themselves, and trust God to bring his/her purpose to pass.  God is faithful to us in and out of season.  

As the Founder/CEO of Stimulation to Success Ministry, I would like for this blog to be relative to help others. I would love to hear from you, hear your thoughts,  hear your suggestions, and receive your encouragement. Please feel free to leave comment or concern.  I will respond in a timely manner.  You all have a blessed Day!

Yours Truly,

Vanessa
