Leaders forgive to Win

Forgiveness is hard especially for a leader who is doing the right things. It’s hard to forgive people in your organization when mistakes happen. It’s hard because you feel you are the leader and you do not have to forgive. You also feel that you were in the right. When you feel like this, you get mad. Maybe you don’t speak to the people. How can you lead it if you are not communicating? This builds inner anger. This inner anger will come out in all of your other discussions and directives. Angry discussions and directives lead to a path of futility.

Angry discussions and directives lead to a path of futility

Your mind plays tricks on you when unforgiveness creeps in. Your mind can cause you to replay the offense over and over again. Instead of forward thinking you are backward thinking. Forward thinking takes you to the top and backward thinking Leaves you stuck in the mud.

Forgive yourself

To forgive yourself you must dismiss all self-doubt. You are your biggest critic therefore, cut yourself some slack. Most of the time you are the only person that is offended. Let God correct you and do the instruction given to you. Unforgiveness can lead to a state of depression. When you find yourself in this place stay connected to positive friends and family. And also say positive things about you and your situation.

Colossians 1:14 in whom we have redemption because of His sacrifice, resulting in the forgiveness of our sins and the cancellation of sins’ penalty.

Stress Your Mountain

Put pressure on your prayer

 

Life puts pressure on you that feels like a Mountain. You have to determine to stress the mountain of pressure if you want it to crumble. Without putting pressure on the mountain it will not be removed from you.

There are many situations that put stress on us. We believe these problems are insurmountable. Since God does not put more on us than we can bear. There has to be a way to remove and handle these seemingly unmovable challenges.

Speak the Word

The word of God is powerful to the pulling down of strongholds(2 Cor. 10v4). Therefore we must speak directly to the problem. Do not be afraid to put stress on the actual problem.

 Pray earnestly

The prayers of the righteous man available much(James 5v16). Pray to God that He helps you see the true underlying core root of the problem. Pray to God for a peaceful solution. Be thankful to God that He reveals your position in the fight. Pray that you have the strength to do the instructions that come from prayer.

Call a fast

Some things are only removed by prayer and supplication(fasting)(Mark 9 v 28-29). Calling a fast removes an object or action that is special to you. It may be possible that you have made this thing a God or idol in your life. And every time this thing comes in your mind, sacrifice it to the Lord, letting Him know that you are serious about putting stress on your mountain

Your faith makes you whole. (Luke 8 v 48) With the proper Word(scriptures), prayer and fasting the mountain will have significant stress. With patience the stress fractures in the mountain will cause it to be removed from you. The last step is to believe in your heart that these things are so.
Stress your mountain and your stress will be relieved. Stress your mountain and it will be removed from you. Be patient while you are dominating your mountain.

Father’s Day Patience

Good fathers see the in game

There is one good example of how a father should conduct himself. Fathers do themselves well to look to God.  As fathers we want the best for our children. We want ourinstructions and molding to take effect immediately. In the midst of training the reward seems fleeting.  Patients makes fatherhood palatable.

God has many different children with many different characteristics.God loves all his children for their unique characteristics.  He even express exudes joy when they follow Him and not the world.when his children seem to be disobedient or follow the incorrect he is ever steadfast waiting for their return. He has long patience for his children’s success.

 

So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart, and by the skillfulness of his hands.

Psalm 78:72

Take this Father’s Day to be thankful for the children God gave you. Make this Father’s Day a day of remembrance of the good times and celebration for the reward of love in the future. Fathers Day Patience strengthens you, and your children in the kingdom of God.

Pray for Alabama

Decision America Tour

“Do not forget to Pray!” is what I hear as I prepare for a brief business trip to Montgomery. What an easy request! I prayed a modest prayer . Business meetings lead to Business increase.  Our State Legislature is in session at the same time we planned this meeting. Directly related to the Alabama State Legislature meeting is Franklin Graham Decision America Tour rolling into town to Pray for Alabama. One of my business associciates travelled from a different state to participate in the prayer meeting. When he told me he was going to pray I heard again “Don’t forget to pray.”

Honestly, I did not have a clue of that any one else was praying for my State (Alabama), so this was a nice surprise. Not until I arrived in Montgomery did I understand that I needed to go pray at the Captiol too. Immediately after the meeting we headed up Goat Hill to pray. Now the boldness that God placed in me wants to pray on the star that marks the spot where Jefferson Davis was sworn as in as the United Confederate States president. God unites and uplifts.

When we got to the top I was impressed that an organization would plan an event that soul focus was to spread the Good News over AMERICA AND ALABAMA. That God impressed upon me to go and pray for Alabama cuases me issue a challenge to all the Dominators. Pray for your state and  other states but more importantly go where God sends you to pray. Warriors of Prayer unite.

The Excellency of Patience

running-in-sunsetThe Excellency of Patience is great, because it gives you peace of mind. The peace of mind comes from knowing that the Father is in control. The control from the Father allows calm endurance.  Patience is excellent because it purifies the motive. These thoughts are driven by the following verses.

 

James 1:1-8King James Version (KJV)

1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

 

Why would James use her or a female voice to personify patience?

James personifies patience as a woman or a female voice because, a male voice may project too much aggression. Patience doesn’t require strength and aggression it requires you to focus and listen.

 

After this test you will want nothing.

 

God testing your faith is excellent because, after the test He gives you great rewards. These rewards are not just in riches, but also in wisdom.  God says if you lack wisdom and ask Him, it (wisdom) will be given to you. But you must have faith and not waver like the sea.

“Faith is the accelerant.” Joel Osteen

Since faith is an accelerant when it is tried it accelerates patience. So the traditional tenants of patience do not apply as you work your faith. Faith can speed the process of being perfect and wanting nothing. Faith can be an accelerant in anything, the acceleration comes from you believing in the father and trusting in his word. In this faith do not waver in asking Him, if you waver you will be lost, driven out, and tossed away according to James 1 verse 6. 

Proper faith and believing causes you not to waver.  This patience leads you on an excellent new path. God leads you to places you have never encountered that will give joy while testing your faith.

Realized Potential

potential

The first of the year brings excitement of new possibilities

New possibilities are mingled with potential that is placed in you. We all have potential to reach our wildest dreams.  Many years we write these list that are well meaning and generally are obtainable.  The challenge is follow through and completion. Completion takes focus when you are months into the New Year.

 

Make a dramatic change

This says to you and those around you that you are serious this time. Living in consciousness not in emotions. Emotion causes you to doubt your ability to change because it convinces you that begin stuck in the past will satisfy you better than the future will.

Hosea 2:23

 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.

God always has a change of heart for his people whether they were with him or not if God can have mercy on those which were not his people, then having mercy on the new you and giving it a chance should not be something to question.

 

Write the plan

Write the plans you know it now. Do not rest or rely on your previous directives to shape your new future. When you write take the limits off of the potential God placed in you.  Increase your awareness of your own needs. Do not let others steer you in the wrong direction away from your plans.

 

Be relentless in your pursuit of greatness

Ecclesiastes 9:10

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

 

Why are you doing part of the work and expecting full results? In order to realize your potential, you have to exhaust all possibilities.  Leave no stone unturned. Knock on the extra doors in search of your dreams. Realize you are the truth.
