My Confidence...

Be Confident in God
Jesus knew where He came from, He knew what He was sent to do, and He knew where He was going. When you get that confidence of knowing God and His purpose for your life, you will not be affected by the judgments or criticisms of other people.
You know you belong to God. You know His hand is on you. You know His anointing is on you. You know what you are called to do. You know that with every breath you take, you are trying to follow Him, and you know where you are going when you are all finished. Say, "Nothing that happens today can separate me from God's love and His purpose for my life."

I read this, this morning during my quiet time, and I felt my whole spirit just lift... its true for me, Jesus is my confidence.

there is much to fear in this world, but with Jesus, there is nothing to fear really.

the future, physically,…

I just hate it...

I just hate it when a person says one thing to you and a completely different thing behind your back.

I just hate it when people say yes, and actually mean or (secretly say) no.

I just hate it when people undermine the work you try to do and have worked hard for years trying to build.

I just hate it when people criticse others for the same stuff they do themselves.

its easy to do isnt it ?

but it seriously destroys the unity and faith and momentum that we try to build in our churches when people are not true.

I have found recently that sometimes this happens, from people you dont expect to see it in, and who you have placed trust in, but the sad reality which I must confess, that in my past, I also have been like this.

it is just so soul destroying...not only to the individual who cant seem to hold truth , but also to the larger group or other individual involved. ( I apologise to any I have wronged in this way in my past)

it frustrates me and confuses me, that a person can say …


it hasnt affected me so greatly so far, as an Officer, but no doubt it will soon enough... but change is part of life the Salvo Officer.

I have been thinking of it a lot at the moment in regards to my own personal ministry future, but also our church ministry and how things are presently.

Churches and Christians get stuck into ruts, when they start thinking stuff like,

"we have always done it this way so why change anything".

truth is, if things are working well, then maybe nothing has to change at all.

It's when things get stuck, you stop growing and start diminishing, that if change isnt implemented then you will die, the church will die, the group, the team, the business, your own personal spiritual life.

A great friend of mine, Pastor Shane Baxter quoted the other day, saying.." without change, nothing changes' and it's such a great truth.

it's not about change for changes sake... but rather change, tweak so that things improve.

John Maxwell say…
