We have a choice when it comes to the way we see things. Some people are like thermometers; always alerting us when things aren’t right. But others are more like thermostats. These people determine the temperature in the room. Their words, their thoughts and their actions set the atmosphere. Are you a thermostat or are you a thermometer? Light is often used as a metaphor for teachings that bring wisdom and understanding into the hearts of individuals. Jesus is the light of God within us.
Too often, we miss out on what God wants to do in us and through us because we listen to the voice of the Enemy telling us, you’ll never ever ________________. Most of the barriers in front of us are rooted in two identity issues: the way in which others perceive us and the way in which we see ourselves. If you never know how to be loved, you will never know how to give love. We are commanded to prepare for the move of God before he makes the first move.
The Christian life is not me first; it is the kingdom first.
Seek first the kingdom and everything else will be blessed.
Get in alignment with what God says about you. What you are passionate about is what you activate. Don’t let your past come in the way of seeking Jesus; you have control of your present.
The only person that is responsible for your actions (and your thinking) is you.
Jesus is not an addition to your life; He is the focal point.
