Broken Into Perfection

Broken Into Perfection – YouTube

 

  • When we look at being BROKEN it means to reduce to fragmentsGod is trying to reduce your past to fragments.
  • It also means out of working order, interrupted, disrupted or disconnectedGod has shown you that you have been out of His working order but it is now time to lay hold of Christ and move as God says move. There is no more room for interruptions or disconnections.
  • Broken also means weakened in strength and spiritPsalm 51:17 says the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart. And Psalm 34:18 says the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as a contrite spirit. So when your heart and spirit has been broken the Lord is right there, near you waiting for you to reach for Him so that He can save you.

When God is processing us we look for God to fix things in our time but we must wait on the Lord for His timing. We must learn to have patience in this process of perfection.

James 1:3,4 says Knowing that your testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing. God wants you to be in a place where you are not empty and there are no voids in your life. It is the Lord who makes us whole. We must patiently wait on the Lord to fulfill our process.

So when God is breaking us into perfection it takes time for this process to happen.

  • To be broken also means to make a way through, to penetrate. Which mean that when you allow yourself to be broken into perfection the Holy Spirit is breaking through your spirit and when God gets finish you will not be deficient in your heart and in your spirit. You will be full and complete in the spirit.

So, while you are going through your process of being Broken Into Perfection, be patient and wait on the Lord as He takes you to being whole and complete in Him.

Spiritual Fitness


  So, often we focus on our physical bodies. We worry about our self-image and our weight. We think about what we need to do to be healthy and how we need to do it. We go out of our way to be physically fit. We begin to eat differently so that we can feel better. Some of us get on a track and/or treadmill to build our endurance for a race or marathon we desire to be a part of. We take time in preparation to run our race by doing the research needed and looking for exercises that will help us. We look at different eating habits, to design our bodies to fit the criteria of the type of person we want to become. There are different specialist that we talk to, helping us find the right workout program. We buy books upon books to prepare for a healthier body type. As we continue on this physical journey and lifestyle change, we are looking at our weight and measurements. We are paying attention to the body changes that is going on and as our bodies change we become encouraged to keep going. When we get the results that we desire we become so excited about those results that we begin to share what we are doing with others. Others will even approach us and ask us what we are doing differently so they can get similar results. While on our own journey we will take the time out to help others on their journey toward their own weight loss goal.

1 Timothy 4:8 (NLT) Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.

So, are we putting in as much time Spiritually Exercising as we should so that we can make it to the Kingdom? We are concerned about our physical body, but are we truly concerned about our spiritual body? What about our spiritual-image and how it weighs in on who we are? Are we taking in the Word, so we cannot just feel better but be better? As we talk to Christ, who is our Spiritual Specialist, we can ask Him anything because He knows what we need. He has already been here and has given us examples from His journey here. When we read our Word, Christ gives us the endurance to run our race. We are built up in Him to endure the obstacles that come our way. As we search the Scriptures and listen to the men and women of God for wisdom and guidance, we are preparing for a healthier spirit. We can begin to measure and weigh ourselves with the Word and how God leads us as we become changed.

As you begin to let God’s Word take root in you, you will begin to look different. People will see the difference and will begin to ask what you are doing. You can then begin to share God with them. They will want to know what they need to do in order to have the joy you have. You can help them in their Spiritual Exercise Program towards Heaven. By exercising LOVE, JOY, FAITHFULNESS, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, LONG-SUFFERING, GENTLENESS and SELF-CONTROL your spirit becomes humble and you are walking in godliness, giving of yourself completely to Christ. So, do not let your spiritual body waste away and become obese in sin. Do not let the weight of your past keep you in a place of fear. God see’s the beauty in you and it is time to drop those pounds, because His yoke is easy and His burden is light. (Matt. 11:30)

Everyday WE must exercise SPIRITUALLY.

1 Timothy 4:7 ……..exercise yourself toward godliness.


Some things to focus on as you go on your Spiritual Fitness Journey.

  1. What are your goals?
  2. What do you want to lose?
  3. What do you want to change?
  4. How would you like to see your demeanor change?
  5. How will your attitude change?
  6. What steps will you take toward your goals?
  7. How will you pre for the days to come?

Remember Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

WE have a race to run………LET’S GO!!!!!!

Spiritual Reconstruction

  
You are being refined when nothing seems to be going your way. Everything in your life seems like it’s going wrong, even though you have been faithful in seeking God the best you know how. That is when God is taking you into a deeper level of trust in Him. God is cutting away parts of you that are not reflecting His character. As the Master Surgeon cuts those things away from your life you will begin to experience victory over the temptations in your life. There is a healing that must take place after surgery and when you come out you are better than when you went in. 

Are you willing to let God reconstruct you?

The Lord Is Calling You

 How often have you began to step into our calling and find yourself in a place of being overwhelmed? You begin to question “God, why me”, or you feel as though you do not have the means to get it done? There are also those times when you say “I don’t even know anything about this or what I’m doing.” All kinds of fear has set in and then the big question, “how do I know this is from God.” At that moment you became the disciples sitting in the boat.(Matthew 14:22-33

Christ is standing right in front of you and you don’t know it. You cNt even see Him cause you think it’s something else tugging on you. You become disillusioned by your own thoughts and fears and your mind is playing tricks on you. How long will you allow your fears to take control? How long will you question God? What will God have to do to show you it is Him waiting on you? What does He have to use for you to see Him? Who does He have to use for you to see Him? Do not be the one sitting in the boat, full of fear when Christ is standing before you, calling you. 

The Lord is calling you, can you hear Him gently calling your name?
The Lord is calling you, are you ready to get out the boat?

The Lord is calling you, are you ready to go where He is going to take you?

You’re being called to your purpose, you have a calling on your life and many are awaiting you, so they can be saved. Can you hear God gently calling your name?

The Lord is calling you…………are you ready to step into your calling?
