When you bear good fruit you will draw others to Jesus. Good fruit is only from the Holy Spirit. You can be a believer and not have good fruit if you are not following the Holy Spirit because He cannot function to His fullest in someone who ignores or denies the Holy Spirit in them. We are to beware of false prophets, they are ones that comes in sheep's clothing, but do not follow them for they are wolves in sheep's clothing. They may sound good, but if you watch their fruit it is not of the Lord. To most, they may seem good and of God, but be weary. God will show you when you should not follow, if you listen to Him. Always ask for discernment when you are walking with the Lord, for you will need it. Remember the devil knows what God can do and he will try to deceive you, be wise. The fruit of the Spirit will be visible only in a person who lives in obedience to God's ways. When they walk by the flesh, pride settles in and they think they are better then you. But trust in the Lord and he will bring you through and out of what the enemy is trying to do in your life by deception.

Our emotions run with what is happening in our lives or what we may feel could happen. As we think about things in our mind, our emotions are affected. Your thoughts produce emotions. If your thoughts are negative or positive then your emotions can run wild. It is written, In His presence our hearts are made whole and your emotions become positive. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life. He who is of a merry heart has a continual feast. So surrender and let the Holy Spirit control your emotions. God wants you to being your emotions and feelings to Him. When you walk close to the Lord, let Him control your emotions. Bring good and bad emotions to Him and know that He is in control. Trusting in Him is where you want to be and your emotions will line up with what He wants and not what you want if you bring it to Him. Talk to Him about what is happening in your life and sit and wait for Him to answer. He does answer if you listen.

Everyone God has created his gifts that He has placed in you. It is up to you to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit for those gifts. Every gift He has given you is to be used for His glory. As long as you depend of God each day, and trusting in His Word as you study it, you will know where He is leading you to go. You can ask God what your gifts are, some may not think they are important, but if God has given them to you, they are important. You don't know how God will use them in someone's life. Just trust Him and obey. Unfortunately, some use the gifts God gives them for the enemy's glory. Big mistake, you don't want to do that. We must submit to the Holy Spirit to lead us in the recognition of our gifts. Don't try to form our own gifts because that will not work, God can't work through those. But when it is God's gifts that He is bringing out of you, they will manifest in His timing alone.

If you know God, you know He has more for you than you can imagine. But if you don't know Him, you won't receive all He has for you. God is an all knowing and all loving God who has the desire for all to be saved. You must desire Him whole heartily into your life and walk in all His ways. Don't love others above God, such as your spouse, children, grandchildren, or your job. He can see what is in your heart, so don't try to deceive ones self. When people ask you to pray, pray, don't forget about it. As they go up for prayer, stand back at your seat and pray. God is watching every move we make, every word we say, put Him first. When you pray earnestly for others in Jesus Name, God will listen and remember when you need a prayer answered. God is an awesome God and He can do all things, if we only believe. Trust and Believe and He will lead you in His path of righteousness.

You will be convicted by the Holy Spirit when you sin. Jesus paid a price for you and you belong to Him. Your body is the temple of His Spirit and you must not defile it in any way. If you sin, you are not led by the Holy Spirit, you are led by your fleshly desires or the enemy of your body, soul, and mind. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you out of the path of sin and walk in righteousness. If you ask for help to break destructive habits and pick up beneficial ones He will answer. Ask God to help with the things you are struggling with and for Him to lead you away from temptation and give you strength to do the right thing. God wants us to be set apart for His purposes. We are to be different from the world in the way we act, think, and live. So cast down all thoughts and foolish imaginations contrary to God and bring every thought into captivity to Christ.

When you fear that means you believe God is not in control. Jesus connects fear with lack of faith and that's what tormenting fear is. It is written, without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. You need a faith that you can cast down all fear and ask the Holy Spirit to grow faith in you. Jesus says have faith, don't doubt. Believe God is with you and He is diligently working on your behalf if you trust in Him. That means you must know that you know that He hears you and answers you. Ask Him to teach you to pray in faith without being double minded, for anyone that is double minded does not receive from God. You need mountain moving faith, ask for it and believe you can have it in order to glorify the Lord. Seek Him with your whole heart, for it is written, He rewards those when they seek Him. Confess that fear and doubt is sin and ask for forgiveness.

We know the most important thing to do for someone is to lead them to the Lord. But the second most important thing to do for someone is to pray with them or for them. Prayer can be powerful if you spend time with the Lord daily. It is our job to pray and the Lord to answer. Ask the Lord to bring someone in your path that would need to know the Lord or would need prayer. God will answer this prayer for it lines up with His Word. God will open doors. You want people to see Jesus in you. When someone needs prayer they will know who to ask because people are watching just as God watches us. You want your actions to glorify the Lord. Even if you only silently pray for that person without their knowledge, that prayer has enough power to draw them into a relationship with God in the future. Prayer is the means by which we help others get close to God. As you pray for others and with others, you would have changed lives for eternity.

As you walk with the Lord, you need to walk in faith. Faith in Him, that He can do all things. Faith is believing till you receive, not the faith of the microwave that the answer should be instant. That faith is not believing. Believing is to have faith that it will happen, but just in God's timing not yours. Don't doubt or give up for then you are not believing. God says trust and believe till it comes. When you constantly think about something that you want, you are not trusting. Also, some allow fear to come into their lives which brings doubt. That stops the work of the Lord in all areas. You need to get to the place that even if the answer does not come, you will be fine. That is letting go and letting God work. In the days ahead we will have to trust and believe for the end is coming soon and you want to be caught up and not swept away. Get close to the Lord for your life will depend on it.

As we start into a new year, you want to draw ever closer to our Lord. The time is short and He is about to come. You want to be ready or you won't be caught up with Him. Don't be caught without the oil of the Word and the relationship with the Lord. Our Father who art in heaven, hallow be though name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. When you say this, pray believe it and place it in your heart. This is time to pray fervently for your loved ones to come to the knowledge of God. God hears our prayers when they line up with His Word. His desire is for all to be saved. Don't give up, keep knocking, seeking, and asking for them to be delivered and go in the rapture. our life and their life depend on it. Believe as Abraham believed, trust as Abraham trusted.

It is Christmas time and people have lost the true meaning of Christmas. You don't even feel the spirit at this time anymore. People have taken Christ out of everything in thier lives and the Spirit has been shut down. You can see what this is doing to our world. The church has let the world creep in and take over this world even though this world was created by God's Word. You see the chaos and evil running rampant. What can change this is God's people rising up and seek His face in prayer and fasting. People think this is a time of getting, but it should be time for giving. Over two thousand years ago, Jesus gave you the best gift of all, salvation. He gave His life to save us. Would you do that for someone? You should be on your knees every day praising and exalting Him for who He is and what He has done for you. Bring Him back where He belongs. Christ and Him Crucified should be what is on our mind this Christmas season and all year long.

You must watch out and not allow yourself to grow cold. Stay in communication with the Lord to keep the fire burning within you. Don't let outside influences draw you away from spending time with the Lord. God wants us to cut away anything in our heart that keeps us from Him. He requires reverence, live his way, love and serve Him with your whole heart and keep His commandments. If there is anything in your life that keeps you from that, you need to remove it. Sin separates us from God, but busyness, obsessing over work, the internet, television. If you feel you have been doing these things and you don't have that closeness that you need with the Lord, then ask Him to revel what you need to change in your life. Get rid of wrong influences, jealousy or covetousness, tying to be like others, controlled by money. These are things that can draw you away from God and the enemy does it slowly, so you may not notice it is happening. Ask Him to show you when you are walking backwards.

The enemy will always draw you into pride, but the Holy Spirit will lead you away from pride. He comes to you with lies and make you feel that you are great and deserving. If you follow him, you will fall, maybe not right at first, but yes you will fall. You are told that you are responsible for all that is accomplished in your life. When these thoughts come to you, cast them down and out of our mind. He is trying to take you down and if you let him, he will succeed. God hates pride because it is rebellion. In the last days perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. Each one of these has pride as it's root. When good things come into your life, don't accept pride, thank the Lord that He has blessed you. The fall that is preceded by pride is always an enormous one. God is why you have what you have, not that you have done something to get it. No matter how faithful you think you are, anyone can become prideful. Ask the Lord to show you when you are entertaining thoughts of pride and help you cast it down.

If you allow the Holy Spirit to indwell in you, then He will enable you to resist temptation. When you are tempted to do something that is not of God, you are enticed to do evil. The devil is very sneaky and knows how to sway you to do what is against God. Look at what he did to Eve and he still does to this day, the same deception that he did so long ago. So ask the Holy Spirit to lead you each day, so you don't give into your own weak and sinful nature. So pray each day that the Lord will lead you away from the trap of the enemy and in the right direction. God will allow some things in your lives as a test to see if we will choose Him, to obey Him, serve Him, reverence Him, and cling to Him no matter what tempttion arises. Jesus was tempted just as we are and He used the Word against the devil, just as we are instructed to do through His Word. Don't doubt God, resist temptation. The devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy. S o pray harder. and with reverence to the Lord. He will see our heart and hear your prayers. T rust, obey and rely on the one that has redeemed you.

This is the time we all should bow down and worship the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He has given you a special gift of salvation which is the most precious gift of all. Some take it for granted, but you know if you were the only one on earth, He would of still came and died for you. The love He has for you, is the love you need to have for Him. Jesus should be your everything and if He isn't, you need to check your heart and where it is. Your desire to worship Him at all times is where our heart should be. Let go of all of you and grab hold of all of Him. You won't be sorry, for He is all you need. Thank Him for all He has done, doing and yet to come. Trust in Him with your whole heart and lean not to your own understanding.

If you are saved, you have the Holy Spirit dwelling in you. Therefore, yoiu should be worshiping in Spirit and Truth. The Holy Spirit guides us in all truth. As you worship, you must trust, rest, and believe that He can do all that He says He will do. When you rise out of bed each day, you should start to worship Him. That should be the first and last thing on your mind. Go expecting He will do miracles in your life, in your family, and all that you pray about. Does your earthly Dad give you what you ask for, if it is in your best interest. How much more will your Heavenly Father give. He is your Heavenly Father, Bread of Life, All-Knowing, Light of the World, Lord of Lords, Kig of Kings, Stronghold in the Day of Trouble, Resting Place, Refuge from the Storm, Shad from the Heat, Rewarder, Shield, Sustainer, and Merciful, thank Him that He is these things to you. When you look at His names, each one is worthy of praise.

Be led by His Spirit because Jesus has power over all disease. When you read His Word, Jesus went about healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. God hears our prayers and He moves if you are believing He can when you pray. When you walk before Him in truth and with a loyal heart and do what is good in God sight, He responds. So even in the face of death, pray for a miracle. When Jesus died on that Cross at Calvary, he declared Victory and said IT IS FINISHED. Do you believe that or not? Do you believe His Word or not? Ask God to help any unbelief within you. Divine healing is a gift from God and was accomplished by His death and resurrection on the Cross. By whose stripes you were healed. So He not only suffered for your sins, but also for your sickness. Having faith in God and His ability to heal will bring healing to us. So believe and watch Him work.

God is looking for an relationship with you each and every day. He wants you to be with Him each and every day. He wants a relationship with us and to trust Him for everything we need. Some Christians let the Holy Spirit be watered down in their life. When we do that the Holy Spirit can not work in our lives. He guides us so we go forward and not backwards. If you are standing still, then you are actually going backward. If you let the Holy Spirit consume you, then He will burn the dross off. As long as you let Him, He will refine you like gold by filling us with more of Himself and burning away everything that is not of Him. The Holy Spirit gives you strength you need to follow His direction for our life. Without Him you can not face what is ahead, for the enemy would have fun throwing you to and fro and following every doctrine that comes along. We need to pray, to be strengthened with the might through His Spirit in our inner man. It is not a weakness to depend upon God, it is actually a strength.
