We recieve so many emails with young ladies asking us how we manage to stand firm in the midst of a world that is constantly standing against us. We get questions on what gives us drive or what keeps our faith going. It seems many of us are in a constant battle with ourselves. We follow what believe and love it but we also face many obstacles. I can't pretend to have every single answer or always be right however I can let you know what my personal experience has been. What has moved me, what has guided me and what has given me strength. It's as simple as this...
So what is righteousness? Righteousness is seeking what is right in Gods perspective. Many times we think we are seeking His kingdom and His righteousness but we don't realize the small things we do that hinders our seeking after. Are we seeking the right freinds, the right ministry, the right music, the right attitude, etc? There is so much that goes into our relationship with God that affects us seeking His kingdom. I focus on this so much because by personal experience I've learned that when I seek Him it's His presence that strengthens me. It's seeking God that enables me to follow Him. It gives me the very strength I need to deny myself. Let's face it if you can't deny yourself how then can you even come to deny others? How then could you have the strength to deny to world around you?
What keeps me going is that fact that He is everything to me but you only understand this fully when you have a supernatural experience with God. It's more than just knowing you want to follow Jesus, it's seeking Him, it's living for Him, it's falling in love with Him and that can be difficult for us to undestand without the spiritual aspect of it. Here is the secret, the answer you've been looking for, prayer and fasting is the key. If you take care of fueling yourself with the presence of God, God will take care of the rest. By rest I mean your family, your well being, your health, your education, your ministry life, your spiritual life and suddenly that strength you so desperatly saught after begins to come through not because your strong but instead because you begin to place your will in Gods hands and He is strong. We cannot do this with our own strength and with our own will. When you realize this you not only allow Him to help you but you also glorify Him.
Truth is many people don't pay the price to get what they need. Many Christians can't even pray for more than 20 minutes and that's a shame. We get bored, tired, or run out things to say but all this is false. When your in a beatiful Holy Ghost filled moment with God the truth is you don't want to stop. If you struggle with prayer I urge you to change the way you pray, read the bible, ask your Pastor, God will guide you if you let Him but do something! I promise you, I guarantee you things will change! Stop watching those shows on Netflix and Hulu that fill your spirit with nothing but negativity (without you knowing this is what happens) that's why the world is full of anxiety, confusion and depression among other things. Stop allowing the wrong people to enter your life and start pursuing Gods presence. You were born to stand out, you were born to be a light to the world. To shine! Don't fall prey to the thoughts that you are worthless. You were bought with a price! You are special, you are imporant, you are valuable and no one, no person and no time can take that value away from you because God himself became flesh to die for you. If your at the verge of giving up, if your tired and weary, if your emotions are too heavy to carry then pray with me. Pray with me here, right now. I don't know who needs this but if it has grown in my heart I believe 100% it's because the Lord planted it there. He planted it there just for you.
