Learn To Say NO – Love Life Tip

But let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and ‘No’ mean ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these comes from the evil one. Matthew 5:37 MEV

Many people find it hard to say NO, and when a person doesn’t say NO due to them being afraid of displeasing others, they end up carrying the heavy load of regret and bad experiences from that decision. When a person says YES to any person and starts dating or doing things with them, they are saying NO to their true happiness in their love life.

Since when did settling for less really bring anyone happiness?

We must have a FIRM belief in what we want & the standards for our love life. This applies in all things, stand up and say NO when you see your standards are not being met by yourself and others. We must decide to react and say NO to all problems, issues, injustices etc… when they are trying to make us give up.

It’s paramount that we have a CLEAR vision for what we want in our love life; because when we have a CLEAR vision on what we want, we will keep our eyes and focus on that goal. The saying “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!” comes to mind. We can’t let the devil’s plan and distractions divert our attention from our standards and goals.

IF WE VALUE OURSELVES; WHY WOULD WE GIVE OURSELVES TO SOMEONE WHO WILL NOT VALUE US THE WAY WE EXPECT?

LEARN TO SAY NO! The only person we should never say NO to is God. Yes or Yes =)

Intelligent Faith Explained – Part 2

Mind Use It

And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 MEV

What is intelligent faith?

Intelligent = Taking into account what God has said and promised in the Bible, then believing in it above ALL other words, knowledge and situations in the world. Using your brain and not your heart. Your reason and not emotions.

Faith = A personal relationship consisting of acts of sacrifice, commitment and submission to Him DAILY; which in turn will provide an innate assurance/conviction(not a feeling), which comes from God exclusively, that He exists and rewards those who prove they love Him by obeying His directions. Believing without seeing.

Our God-given common sense(although I call it rare sense nowadays) helps us to take a step back from our problems & life to assess it the situation, look at the God we claim to have a relationship with, look at what His Words claim He IS and CAN do, and then react with intelligent faith against the devil and his demons that are trying to rob us of the Promises and Life He spoke of.

For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 MEV

Also to react with an intelligent faith to demand and claim from God what He promised to those who have a relationship with Him. It’s to assess our lives based on what the Bible says, whether we fully understand it or not.

…test Me now in this… Malachi 3:10 MEV

Sacrifice is the PRICE to get the benefits of Intelligent Faith.

One final thing

It’s important that we seek to understand the original meaning of certain key words used in the bible, i.e. Love, Sacrifice or Believe. These key word’s original meanings, holds more weight than it’s current meaning.

The truth is that it’s meaning has been diluted over time and many people (including myself) have been lead to think they are obeying God properly, when we haven’t, simply due to a lack of understanding.

The following bible verse comes to mind:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being My priest… Hosea 4:6 MEV

God is with you, believe that!

My Conduct/Actions Is Much More Effective

Actions

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. I Peter 3:1-2 NKJV

This verse applies to everyone!

To speak about God, anyone can do, even the devil and his servants; but to be a true example in our conduct and behavior, not everyone can do it. It’s way more effective, actions speak louder than any words.

If I want my family and friends to be saved, I must be saved first; then through my conduct and behaviour, show Jesus. Real strength is to be obedient & do the right thing always.

Now examine yourself. God Bless!

Intelligent Faith Explained – Part 1

Mind Use It

And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 MEV

What is intelligent faith?

In Theory: 

While meditating on His Words (the Bible) making a sincere effort to UNDERSTANDING who He is and what He can do, above all other knowledge. 

For example: 

He cannot LIE – Numbers 23:19 & Hebrews 6:18

He forgives and forgets our sins – Isaiah 43:25 & Hebrew 8:12 

He is a healer – Exodus 15:26 & 1 Peter 2:24

He delivers us from demons and their works – Psalms 34:27 & Mark 1:24-26 

He provides an abundant life – Jeremiah 29:11 & John 10:10

Bible

In Practice:

After understanding who He is and what He can do, BELIEVING through ACTIONS, above all other prior knowledge, who God IS and can do. 

For Example:

Obey His words/directions – Joshua 6 & Luke 5:4-6

Confessing your sins to Him – Proverb 28:13 & 1 John 1:19

Giving an offering – Malachi 3:8-12 & Luke 6:38 

Working smart to receive a life more abundant – Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 & 2 Corinthians 9:6

Rebuking the devil – Luke 10:18-19 & James 4:7

The Blame Game In A Relationship

blaming-it-on-eve6

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasing to the eyes and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave to her husband with her, and he ate, […] Then they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:6 & 8 MEV

God has given everyone FREE WILL. In a relationship, people make different choices on how they deal with problems, setbacks, losses etc… The relationship’s success or failure, is an outcome of these various decisions.

Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.” Genesis 3:11-12 MEV

When an issue arises in a relationship, it very easy to start pointing fingers, blame other people and start denouncing any ownership of contributing towards the issue, just like how Adam did. Why? because it’s the easiest thing to do in those moments, the emotional thing to do. No one wants to feel like they are at fault and feel like a failure.

Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What have you done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” Genesis 3:13 MEV

 

140898-141725

In addition to that, many people, when problems arise in their relationship, out of emotions tend to go and do something even more silly, and are quick to say, “It’s all our fault!” or “If you hadn’t said that, I wouldn’t have done it!”. They do what Eve did.

In reality, that person cannot blame their partner or anything as the reason for making that bad decision, even if it contributed to it, because that person has FREE WILL and can never be forced to do anything.

Everyone must take responsibility for their decisions, the good ones and especially, the bad ones. When we blame people, you will never move forward, this is because you are putting your responsibility, of solving the issue, in someone else’s hands.

One more thing: You & I have no exclusive power over what others decide to do, only on what we decide to do. ALWAYS remember this.

Anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. I John 4:8 MEV

How can you expect to have a successful relationship with someone but don’t include God? He is LOVE, that’s like making a chocolate cake without using chocolate.

I pray you heard God’s voice and will act upon His guidance, in Jesus name.

Love Is One Thing; Passion Is Another!

7065210-2-1475853628-650-6898a2519a-1-1475922096

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. If I give all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing. I Corinthians 13:1-3 MEV

When you hear the word Passion, what do you associate it with? Likewise, when you hear the word Love, what do you associate it with? In my opinion, I associate the word Passion with the Heart & I associate the word Love with the Mind.

The initial part of a relationship has a lot to do with passion, and very little to do with love. If the relationship progresses in a good way, the relationship moves towards more love and less passion, more rational decision making, and less emotional decision making. An ideal relationship will aim for the balance between the two.

Love suffers long and is kind; love envies not; love flaunts not itself and is not puffed up,  does not behave itself improperly, seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;  rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. I Corinthians 13:4-7 MEV

  • Love is patient; Passion rushes things.
  • Love trusts; Passion is jealous.
  • Love is humble; Passion is arrogant.
  • Love forgives; Passion is resentful – Rule #1 of forgiving is to not bring up the past issues.
  • Love cares; Passion despises.
  • Love doesn’t end; Passion is short lived.

Love never fails. I Corinthians 13:8 MEV 

If you want to build a relationship based on passion, you can go ahead, however, it will not stand. Passion is like a drug, it has a strong effect for a short period but the moment after, when reality kicks in, emptiness abounds. You’ll end up constantly searching for a new high or an exciting new relationship.

One more thing: In the early stage of any relationship, DO NOT be too fast to express yourself fully, as passion is the predominant factor at this stage.

Anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. I John 4:8 MEV

How can you expect to have a successful relationship with someone but don’t include God? He is LOVE, that’s like making a chocolate cake without using chocolate.

I pray you heard God’s voice and will act upon His guidance, in Jesus name.
