Blind Spots

““What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—”

-1 Corinthians 2:9

We are all born with blind spots. An area of the eye that obstructs vision, often called the dead spot. What about our spiritual blind spots? Our sinful nature is our blind spot. These dead spots are insensitive to God’s voice. Preventing our ability to see and understand what God’s intentions toward man really are. Praise God for his gift to us all, Jesus. We now can have insight through the Holy Spirit that dwells in us. God has given us the amazing opportunity to walk freely in the light, rather than continual stumble in the dark.

  • Blind spots may create FEAR: Many live with paralyzing feelings caused by the fear of the unknown. Often times preventing you from moving forward in life or daily activities. Through Christ we can have peace and reassurance we can overcome because He has overcome the world. Allowing us to face life and it’s challenges with courage.
  • Blind spots can be a STUMBLING BLOCK: As believers we can become a hazard to others with our careless living or behaviors. For some it’s knowing the truth and not allowing God to transform our lives through His word. Others it’s just not taking the time to get to know Him for who He really is. Therefore not reflecting God’s true character in us and His life changing power.
  • Blind spots may give you a false sense of INNOCENCE: It’s very common to try and justify oneself when unaware you truly are at fault. Reality is that no one is innocent and the minute we convince ourself we are free from sin we are mistaken. God is continually working in us and bringing us to perfection. We make a huge mistake the minute we think he’s done with us.

Our sinful nature limit us from living an abundant live apart from God. Do you want clarity in all areas of your life. We can have guidance in all areas of our lives through God’s word. His desire is that we seek after truth and start living abundantly in the knowledge of Christ so we may have light in our blind spots.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” In Jesus name I pray, Amen. -Psalm 139‬:‭23-24‬

Gratitude is my attitude!

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” –Philippians 4:11-13

Ever wish you had just a little more than what you have now. Ever feel like what you have at the present time is not enough and no longer satisfying. You know, this feeling is all to familiar and many are often blinded by the vicious cycle of walking into every opportunity to have just little bit more. Unfortunately, the truth is that none of these opportunities leave us completely satisfied.

Here in these verse, Paul isn’t saying it is wrong to have little nor that it is wrong to have much. What he is trying to teach us is a state of being… content. Contentment isn’t a bad thing. Some people may believe that a person who is content is one who lacks desire, self-esteem, drive, ambition or motivation to better oneself and their future. What is prosperity? When will I reach contentment?

The word of God says if we are faithful with little, we will be faithful with much. I believe that this is speaking about both spiritual and material prosperity. God desires us to prosper, but where do we start? What does it look like? It starts with you seeking the kingdom of God, and HIS righteousness. Then all the things you NEED will be given to you.

Do you want peace of mind, mental and emotional satisfaction?

“Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.” –Psalm 73:25

“Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” –Psalm 37:4

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 4:19

“Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” -Matthew 26:41

What are you struggling with? There are many weaknesses of the flesh… physical, mental, emotional & spiritual. Whatever it is you are struggling with today, remember Jesus overcame them all (John 16:33). We should not be surprised when we have these hardships for they are necessary (Acts 14:22). Jesus said, “It is written!”. So why do we act so lost, clueless and without hope? Our direction, hope & substance is in every word that comes from God (Matthew 4:4). Pick up your bible TODAY and start LIVING!

Fall in Love

Photograph by: A. Lelo

Are you… Falling in Love? or Falling in Religion?

Why do we do the things we do? Why do we devote our time, money and effort towards the things we enjoy? There is a difference between the things we want to do and things we have to do? The difference is LOVE!

Falling in Religion
Falling into Religion is being “tied down” to a set of rules, practices, sacrifices, deeds or commitments. That no matter how much you try, it will never produce true love. These set of rules or traditions may be followed out of fear. Fearing rejection from ones loved ones or peers. Others by doing so set at ease their conscience here on earth regarding eternal things. Relationships are a great example of falling in love or falling into religion.

I, (name), take you (name), to be my (wife/husband), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.

Following vows of marriage or commitment to another person cannot be free of burden, if we don’t have true love. Any vow without love becomes a law that cannot be followed faithfully. This is to big of a burden to carry and even follow through without Jesus. The good news is that God did away with all our burdens and placed His law in our hearts, through Jesus Christ. So that we all can willingly and whole heatedly follow through.

Falling in Love
Love practices no constraints. It has no boundaries or limits. It goes beyond what we see, it always hopes & breaks down the rules that bind us all. God’s love sets us free! When we are in love it’s not hard to be faithful, stay committed, be honest, hope, trust, sacrifice, apologize, be patient… etc.

When love is absent any relationship becomes burdensome & those things we so easily did when we were in love are difficult to follow through.

Remember the next time you say, “I you love!” Are you willing to love them the way Christ loved you… and above all things?

  • How is your relationship with God and others?
  • Do you serve Him and others out of religion or out of love?
  • Do you want to fall in love?

Trash digging?

“Therefore, since we have these promises,

dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and

spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.” -2 Corinthians 7:1

What is trash? A thing that is considered worthless, meaningless or useless.

How much trash do we have lying around in our lives? Cleaning up trash is easier said than done, but when you get rid of it, it’s gone! First we have to realize that there is trash that needs to be disposed of. Some clean as they go, others may wait till it piles up, others may not care to live with it and then there are trash diggers. Which are you?

I know that I’m getting sick and tired of trash just hanging around my life. Trash meaning sin! All things useless & meaningless things that delay me from getting closer to having a personal relationship with God. God’s word clearly says to get rid of everything that contaminates us, body & spirit. Unfortunately, we are very good at appearing like we have it all together on the outside. Nice clothes, descent car or job, many friends… but our spiritual life STINKS!! Who are we trying to fool, God?

“Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.” -Galatians 6:7,8

Something’s gotta give! We cannot hold on to those things that separate us from God and expect to have a close relationship with Him. We cannot do both. This is why every person is made aware of the trash we carry around by the Holy Spirit, but we ignore it.

The decision is yours… hold on to it or get rid of it!

  • Recognize you have TRASH in your life!! Call it what it is, “worthless and meaningless”.
  • Ask God to forgive you for holding on to it this long & ignoring Him. Say, “Lord I am ready to allow you to help me live a clean life free of this trash. I need you and I want to change. In Jesus name. Amen”.
  • Now, just get rid of it!! This step will be a continual step from here on out as you come across more trash in your life. Your human nature might not allow you to forget about it, but LETS NOT BE TRASH DIGGERS!! God will give you the strength to stay clean if you want it!
  • Build & strengthen your safety net! Read the bible daily, find a church & GO, join a bible study group & STUDY, pray every day, memorize verses, listen to Christian music, have like-minded friends, just say “NO”, speak & think positive thoughts and remember what you are now… CLEAN!! So fight hard to staying that way!!!
  • DON’T GIVE UP!! “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:9

Its easy to say, “I’m trusting Him with the rest”.
Let’s take thought for a minute here – “… with the rest”. We have a way of first exhausting our own human efforts and strengths. And we come find that our efforts fail us and only take us so far. Today I challenge you to trust Him from the beginning. From the thought process, to every step there after. No matter if we succeed or fail! No matter what problem or decision, big or small. He wants to walk every step of the way with us. We do not have to do it alone. He will encourage us every step of the way. How you ask?… by reading His word and His Spirit in us will remind us that we are not alone.

“This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to (insert your name), whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. (Isaiah 45:1-3 NIV)

Wow this is amazing! What a great feeling to know that our God is mighty and He goes before us. Wouldn’t you want the one who makes the impossible, possible with you every step of the way? With every move, every step and thought we make… let’s start in Him & with Him!! Get into His word and seek Him daily with your whole heart and you will see how things begin to change!!
