Noxolo3"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.'' (Phillipians 2:5)

An attitude is a person's perspective towards a specified target and way of saying and doing things. Since an attitude is made up of what we think, do and feel, we must constantly examine it and check if it is the one that was shown to us by our Master.

Which attitude was in Christ Jesus? Jesus maintained a perfect attitude in every situation because He prayed about everything and worried about nothing. Prayer was His lifeline. He sought God for guidance about every aspect of His Life and allowed the Lord to work out His perfect will without interference. He never became defensive, discouraged, or depressed.

We cannot choose the situations we go through but we can choose an attitude to respond with, whether optimistic or pessimistic. The attitude you chose defines you in so many ways. Our attitude influences our love for God, ourselves and other people; when we feel negative we have the tendency to see our own negativity in other people's eyes and we hate them not for what they are but for what we are.

Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, in the midst of blessing be humble. In trials be patient, speak the Word and be thankful. Even in the midst of ridicule, abuse and hostility, do not retaliate. Always be gentle, humble, selfless, compassionate, loving and be willing to do what is right and good. Your attitude must have a sweet aroma wherever you go.

Jesus Christ is your perfect strength, so mighty that you won't grow weary if you make Him your Lifeline. You will conquer through responding to life's challenges in the Spirit, not flesh. The flesh is not liberal and it is in constant war with itself.
Let the same disposition be in you which was in Christ Jesus, surrender to His perfect will and let Him perfect your attitude.

Noxolo3"For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, 'Abba, Father.' " (Romans 8:15)

There is only one relationship that really matters and that is your personal relationship with your personal Redeemer and LORD. This type of a relationship makes you live in peace with all people. If you maintain that at all costs, letting everything else go, God will fulfill His purpose through your life.

One individual life may be of priceless value to God's purpose and yours may be that life.

The word "Abba" is an Aramaic word that means "Daddy". It is a term that young children would use to address their fathers; it show how they relate to them. It also portrays the close, intimate and beneficial relationship of a father to his child.

You are God's loved child and as His child, you must rely fully on Him for everything. Being the child of the King of kings calls us to a higher standard, a diverse way of life and a much greater hope. When we call Him "Daddy", we have a personal relationship and a new standing before Him; we can cry "Abba, Father" in any circumstance.

Your relationship with God and understanding of Who God is can develop your character and esteem, you would not have to turn elsewhere to seek reference except in His presence. "In Him we find our being."

How marvelous is it to lose yourself in His nourishing presence knowing that He is righteous, holy, loving, good and not capable of any evil. You can trust Him with your life!

Realize that God loves you with all His majestic Being, and that He wants to help you walk through life by walking with Him, in everyday life and in your Spirit.

Noxolo ''I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.'' (Mark 11:23)

You see this mountain, it will not move by those tears! Not even by praying! Mountains are men mockers! Your complains to God won't even make it shift an inch! Mountains do not respect your size, stature or structure or age! The only thing mountain respects in this life is your WORD.

Our mountains sometimes are a product of our creative imaginations, they are the ghosts in our minds! Our thoughts power them and our words frame and fashion them! As powerful and thick as they appear, they fear our WORDS! Yet as powerful as our words are, they can be barren by just one single DOUBT! Why does the mountain respects your word? Because it was first brought into existence by the WORD OF GOD! For by faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the WORD of God so that things which we see are made out of things which do not appear.

This world is a product of the WORD spoken by the LORD hence the only thing that can forcefully access this world are words! Our words can create! But there is a forceful truth spoken by Jesus Himself: if "ANYONE" says... It shall be done for him. This word therefore implies that men in general have the power to move their mountains irrespective of culture, nationality, tribe or RELIGION. Anyone means ANYONE! As Christians, we have been empowered and wired with extra ability and we can WIELD more power than we can ever imagine.

Stop crying because of that mountain.

Address it and it will MOVE.

What is that mountain before you? Is it poverty, sickness, disease, barrenness? Address it and SAY to it move from my path and be cast into the sea! Without a doubt, invincible forces will be at work to carry out your instruction. You are a god over that mountain! Stop praying your mountains to move and start SAYING to that mountain and it will obey you!

919718 me walking again sunset www.sxc.hu profile asifthebes''Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.'' (2 Corinthians 3:17)

In today's world our lives are greatly influenced by unliberated people who are in constant effort to liberate us and to liberate us from our problems.

Liberty is the ability of an individual to have agency or control over their own actions and mind. When you are still controlled by pride, anger, revenge, lust and all negativity, you are still bound. When we are overwhelmed with emotional weariness, fatigue, depression, suicide thoughts, conflicts and oppression we usually run into the arms of those whose minds are not liberated because they readily open their arms and offer their shoulders; they wear us out even more with their unliberated actions, gossip and oppression. When we share our dreams, they are quick to tell us that we won't succeed or it's just "too impossible".

An unliberated mind or person will never be able to liberate others. Liberty comes with emotional intelligence, disciplined action and self-control. When swamped with all sorts of weariness and challenges and don't feel like going on, you need to be in gradual conversation with God because where He is, there is liberty. Such liberty will help you not to cling to anything negative or that can harm the next person. The strategy of the enemy is to cause a lot of little distractions that would wear you out leaving you wide open for more attacks.

Before you can seek comfort from anyone, remember that in Him there is liberty, He is a faithful God who is true to His word.

When you are liberated you are equipped with everything necessary for the battles you face this year. You can climb any mountain, overcome any obstacle and you can make it through every storm you encounter in your life.
