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.

I Thank You

img_7579

Sometimes we need to take the time and just say thank You. So often we tell God what we want and what our heart desires are and we forget to just take the time out and thank Him for all that He has done and continues to do. Could you imagine if the people who are around you just asked and begged for stuff from you and they never took the time out to be grateful and show you gratitude? How often do we do the Lord that way. As my husband always says,

“When you open your eyes in the morning, that is two reasons to thank the Lord.”                     -Pastor TD Glaster

Don’t forget to just say thank you and take the time not to ask the Lord for anything.

O’ Dear God,

I come before you tonight and just want to say thank you.

Lord I thank you for being the protector and sustainer of my life.

I thank you for covering me even when I did not know I needed covering.

For loving me when I did not love myself, I thank You.

For choosing me, O God, I thank You.

For transforming me, I thank You.

For imparting the Holy Spirit upon me, I thank You.

For seeing past my faults, I thank You.

For placing a ministry in me to be used for Your Glory, I thank You, Lord.

For being my Rock, O God I thank You.

For giving me a safe place to hide, I thank You.

For filling me up, God, I thank You.

For Your overflow, thank You.

For gifting me with life, Dear Lord, I thank You.

For giving me peace, I just wanna say thank You.

For touching every seed you have placed in me, Jesus, I thank You.

For giving me the strength to carry on when I did not see a way, Lord I thank You.

For fulfilling my needs, I thank You.

For Your chastisement Lord, I thank You.

For blessing me the way that You do, O God, You don’t have to do the things you do, but I still say Thank you.

For holding me in my lonely nights, I say thank You.

You are the Lily of the Valley, The Rose of Sharon, a Rock in a weary Land, The protector, the Keeper and sustainer of Life and for that I just thank You.

You are the Author and the Finisher of ALL things and God I thank you for writing my life and deciding how it shall go.

For your forgiveness, Lord I thank You.

Lord, You are my all and all and I just thank You for what you are doing and what you are going to do in my life.

In Jesus Holy name….AMEN!

The Lukewarm Christian

I sat in Church and listened to the preached word as my Pastor (Kelvin Davis) spoke from Revelation 3:14-22. As the scripture was read and the words lukewarm came out of the Pastors mouth, lukewarm just continued to echo in my mind and then it began to pull at my heart. Lukewarm is not the life that I want to live.

Revelation 3:14-22 speaks about not being lukewarm but being hot or cold. When you are a lukewarm Christian you do not know where you stand in Christ. You are trying to live an in-between lifestyle. There are no in-between spaces or in-between places. You cannot be stuck in-between Heaven or Hell. Just for a minute could you imagine if God allowed you to be stuck between Heaven and Hell. You being there suspended not belonging any where. Wondering what God thought of you and the decisions you have made in your life? Revelation 3:16 tells us what God thinks, He says He will spit you out of His mouth for being lukewarm. To be spit out means that He wants nothing to do with you because you are distasteful to Him. You cannot follow the Lord only half-way. You must be all in or not in at all. Being lukewarm, means you do not know that you are living a distasteful life to God, you don’t know that you are naked. You do not have any shame for anything that you do because you do not know nothing. It is better to know that you are naked so you can seek being clothed.

You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons too. 1 Corinthians 10:21

You cannot have God when you want Him and then do what you want when you get ready. No, we are not perfect and for that we must seek Christ daily and ask for forgiveness when we make flesh decisions. We are to purchase white garments of righteousness from the Lord. We are to walk in the Spirit so that we may see in the spirit. None of our possessions will get us to the Kingdom, no matter how much money we have.

Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20

I would rather be on fire for the Lord, knowing who I am and whose I am. I do not want to be unpleasing and distasteful to the Lord. When the Lord knocks I want to hear Him knocking and I want to sit and dine with Him. Oh how sweet it is to dine with the Lord. To know that He chose to knock on the door of my heart and He wants to dwell within my spirit and He wants to feed me the wisdom of who He is. Lukewarm is not the life I want and I desire to be so refined that in my pureness I reflect Christ.

To be the reflection of Christ is so beautiful. Allow God to come in. He is knocking and He wants all of you. He wants to sit down with you and show you a life that only you can have with Him. He wants to ease the pain of your life and He wants to set you free from being miserable and poor in spirit. Won’t you open the door and let Him come in?

Get Out The Boat

 

  Sometimes in life you are surrounded by people who say they believe and trust Christ but when a situation arise they become scared. You cannot allow their unbelief to overshadow your belief.  

You must have courage and not be afraid of where God is calling you. Just as Peter got out the boat and walked on the water, at some point it began to get windy and his focus became obscure. You will be walking in your calling and the wind will begin to blow. You will have windy days and maybe even windy months. You cannot do as Peter did and get afraid because you will begin to sink. Jesus said “you of little faith, why did you doubt me?” Don’t allow your faith to waiver and do not let doubt set in. Keep your eyes stayed on Christ, don’t allow the wind to blow you off track. Know that if you find yourself questioning God and you feel you are sinking, call out to Jesus. He will take hold of you and not let you drown. Christ will stand there with you through the process and He will allow the wind to blow so that He can grow you. 

Remember when Jesus got in the boat, the wind ceased. You will have windy days but as long as you trust Christ He will not let you drown and your wind will cease.

3 things we can learn from Peter:

-Have the courage that Peter had, to do as Christ told him to do.

-Have the faith that Christ instructed Peter to have and do not have doubt overshadow your relationship with Christ.
-Stay focus on Christ and no wind will be able to move you.
So, are you ready to get out of YOUR boat?
