“Mama I should come to you more often [for spiritual counseling]. “Son any time- you have first dibs!”
Parents, your children are listening and watching! God gifted us with experience and spiritual wisdom! That’s a perfect and powerful combination for our children to “come to us more often.” I don’t give him any advice that doesn’t come from the Word. I put it on a hip palatable plate and serve it up. Do not let the enemy lie to you about your gift to relate to your child. Use the unadulterated truth (B I B L E) in relatable ways. Even if they depart from truth (B I B L E), they will come back to truth (B I B L E). I declare and decree the release of strongholds and barriers in our children’s lives in Jesus’s name. My son is my best friend. Dr.J.
Keep that dragon, the devil out of your head. He is a deceiver, a liar, a thief, and the father of lies. We will not continue to let Satan mess with our minds about what we’ve done in the past. You’re thinking that because what you did was horribly terribly wrong that you’re still tied to it; because it was utterly disgusting or ridiculous that you are those things. We are not what we’ve done!
Recall the most disgusting, hurtful, disturbing things you’ve done. You got it in your head? Now, give it to God right now for the last time. God has forgiven us. And even though we may have forgiven ourselves, every time Satan brings it to our heads, we feel guilty and unworthy.
This is a deliverance post.
With all the Holy Ghost power in me and upon me, I declare and decree healing, restoration, and complete freedom from condemnation in Jesus’s name. We are not our mess. We are not our mistakes. We are not even the things that have happened to us. We are not our past.
Walk in your purpose. Come out of darkness right now in Jesus’s name. You are light now, in this present moment. Dr.J.
Matthew 6:2-4 NIV “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
It’s “human nature” to want to “share” when we help others. Social media makes it so easy to publicize our “charitable” and “benevolent” deeds. We saw it vividly during the time when Hurricane Matthew 2016 hit. We all started posting what we were buying and how we were helping people. Jesus said when we publicized it, the honor we received from man will be our reward because He isn’t going to bless that.
We just have to pray and ask God to show us the motives of our hearts because only God knows. Jesus says clearly that no one should know when we’re helping His people and that our giving should be in secret. Why? To guard our hearts of pride and keep our motives pure. We can justify “why” we share what we do for others but God knows the heart. I’m praying now about how to facilitate a corporate social media fast in private. Lord help us to stay humble and follow the instructions in Your Word. Holy Spirit convict us before we do the wrong thing in Jesus’s name! Dr.J.
