January 22, 2013 | Leave a comment “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged” 1corins 11:31 The best that can happen to you this year is to think about yourself. This is not a selfish statement but rather, you’re simply telling yourself that you can’t take care of anyone else unless you take care of yourself. If you travel much by plane, you have probably heard the flight attendant say, “In the event of a change in cabin pressure, panels above your head will open revealing oxygen masks. Pull the mask down toward you to activate the flow of oxygen. Cover your nose and mouth with the mask. Place the elastic band around your head and continue to breathe normally. Remember to secure your own mask before assisting others.” Attending to yourself spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically makes you available to empower others. Remember you are here for a purpose. That purpose needs daily nourishment to activate fulfillment. Make no mistake; God has done all He has to do for you. The scripture says; “According as His divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness…” 2 Peter 1:3. Our obedience to the contract that God made with man after creation is what makes the difference. Faith is obedience. To increase our faith and hope in God this year and season, we MUST obey the Word of God (the Bible) God’s template. Obedience to this truth brings total transformation. The Bible says, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves…” Acts 20:28 I degree into your life that this year and season as you choose to practice the path of empowering YOURSELF FIRST, there will be: No lack No lost No limitation in your life in Jesus name.
