Daily Inspiration-The Simplicity of Kindness…

The other day a person, who sits in church every Sunday,  told me that they pass the same woman daily on their walk and have chosen not to say hello or even give her a smile.   She appears unfriendly so they have decided that she will never respond and therefore they will never show any kindness to her.

WOW!  Talk about heart issues (and it is always a heart issue!).  I could not help but think that this very woman could probably use a kind word-not a lengthy conversation, just a simple hello or smile.

We see the world imploding

Daily Inspiration-From Glory to Glory or Carnality to Carnality?

Things are not always as they appear.  Truly, we only see in part.  God alone sees the heart of another.

Show mercy and not judgment from your heart (for it is always a heart issue). To pass judgment only corrupts your heart and any work God may be doing in you.  Stay Kingdom focused and seek His leading for your own life. Let Him change you from glory to glory.  Do not change yourself from carnality to carnality.

For it is

‘Pray the States!’

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation.   Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people.    We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).  We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue.  Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.

Daily Inspiration-“A House Divided…”

There is so much division swirling around today in our country and in the world.  We appear divided on every front…race, creed, political proclivity, etc.  I cannot help but think that corporate division manifests as we allow division into our heart and into our individual lives.  It starts with each of us.

If you follow Christ you are called to love one another.  That does not necessarily mean that you will like everyone but you are called to love them.  Seems confusing, doesn’t it?  Let’s go a bit deeper.  This includes loving yourself and those in your own household.

Daily Inspiration-“Unfollow” the Ways of the World!

Deception is everywhere today.  Pay attention.  Use discernment.  Seek wisdom.  Be honest with yourself and others.  Pursue truth.  Abide in His word.  Read the Bible.  Get it into your heart (for it is always a heart issue).   Walk it out in your life.  Stay ever close under the shadow of His wings.

Follow faithfully His moral code and “unfollow” the ways of the world.

 To be a true disciple of Jesus Christ you cannot have one foot in the Kingdom and one in the world.

Daily Inspiration-Do Not Be Deceived!

If you find someone has lied to you, know that you cannot trust them.  The size of the lie is really insignificant.  If they lie…they lie.  Your choice is whether or not you want to stay in close relationship with a liar.

For it is written:

“Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”

1 Corinthians 15:33

Daily Inspiration-Are You Tossed To and Fro?

Some people live as whirlwinds going from one thing to another with little stability.  They toss to and fro depending on the latest thing they hear.  Engaging with them long term can lead to frustration as they never really mature beyond a childish pursuit without wisdom. Remember, maturity is not necessarily measured by the number of years on lived earth!

Seek wisdom in this season for you are not here by chance.  You are here “for such a time as this.”  Whether or

Daily Inspiration-“A Table in the Wilderness”

In reading the Psalms this weekend I came across Psalm 78:9 which says that: “The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.”  They walked away from God’s covenant and His law.  Further, they forgot all that He had done in the past for them.

I could not help but think how often do we, “turn back in the day of battle?”  These were God’s people who were equipped.  If you have chosen to follow Jesus Christ, you are also a part of God’s people, His Army, which is fully equipped.

What battle

Daily Inspiration-How Do You Respond?

In this life you will not like everyone.  That is OK.  You will not like everything that happens.  That is OK also.  Just remember to be kind and gracious to all you encounter.  Do not let circumstance dictate your response!

For it is written:

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

Jesus

Daily Inspiration-Do You Carry Extra Weight?

To carry extra weight in the natural is unhealthy.  It can affect your overall health and tax your heart.  To carry extra weight in the spiritual realm is also unhealthy.  And, it is always a heart issue here!

The extra weight of anger, resentment, bitterness, rejection and more can weigh you down so very much and affect your emotional well-being and every relationship in your life.  At the root of most if not all heart issues is the issue of un-forgiveness. If you choose not to forgive others for things said or done in the past, you actually hold your
