The Two Foundations

January 5, 2023

This is a new year without new standards. What do I mean by that? God never changes nor does His standards. He continuously remains the same from year to year, before the beginning, and from the everlasting to everlasting. God is holy, disciplined, faithful, loving and so much more than we can imagine. Still, He requires us to obey His word. I recall when Jesus asked His disciples if they were going to leave Him too? Peter replied , Lord where can we go when you have the words of life. 

Yes, our hope, strength, faith, joy and direction all come from the word of life (Jesus). as believers we know for a surety that God's word was never given to us to bring harm. His word is our sure foundation that establishes our faith in Him. His word is our safe place. This year as God's children aim on hearing what He has to say to us by reading, studying and delighting ourselves in His word. 

Become committed in spending quality time in the word of God. Get a journal, take time out to read a scripture, write it in your journal and focus on hat scripture for the day. Think about how strong you will become when applying God's word to your life. Obey His word, love His truth, delight in His promises, get healing from the power of His word and become matured. 

We have two choices only, to accept His word or to reject it. People the choice is yours. Jesus said those that love him hears his words and acts on them. Let us become a doer of God's word not a hearer only so we won't deceive ourselves. James 1:23

Please read and study (Luke chapter 6 verses 46-49). See where you are and do something about it. Remember God did not give us His word for us to collapse but to rise above all adversities. 

Trust God's word and be blessed,

First Lady S. Proctor

Nothing

November 14, 2022

It is nothing. Don’t say all of it, all that was, all that is or all that they’ve done. Because it amounts to nothing. By saying ALL we make the issue greater than God. Sure, we may have been hurt deeply by someone we love, trusted and maybe even felt secure with. Stop, think about what you’ve learned about the heart of man and yourself through disappointment or abandonment.

Don’t give another person’s enjoyment of sin against God any power. You may have been affected by another’s unrighteous action or actions, but their rebellion was against God. They may be enjoying the deception of the world called the fullness of life. Before God it all amounts to nothing, it has no value to God or themself.

It is not all, it is NOTHING.

The word of God say’s in Psalms 37:1 Do not be agitated by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong. For they wither quickly like grass and wilt like tender green plants.

You do the following to honor God.

1. Trust in the Lord and do what is good. Psalms 37:3

2. Delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4

3. Commit your way to the Lord. Psalms 37:5

4. Be silent before the Lord and wait patiently for Him. Psalms 37: 7

5. Refrain from anger and give up your rage. Psalms 37:8

God’s love is always faithful to those that trust in Him.

Love

November 02, 2022

You hear the word love used for food, name brand clothes, purses, perfumes, cars, houses, sex, money and entertainment.  There was a time the word love was used in sincerity and truth.  Now, it is used casually with conditions.   Unfortunately, this has happened with the people of God.  Have we forgotten what the word of God says about Love, have we forgotten who is Love, have we forgotten that Love transformed us into new creatures, have we forgotten that Love never fails?  

 People of God let us not forget that GOD is LOVE and He does not want us to love like the world does. 

God’s word tells us, do not love the world or the things in the world. He says for everything in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of one’s possession is not from the Father but is from the world.  The world is passing away with its lust but he that does the will of God shall abide forever. (I John 2: 15 – 17). 

Certainly, God does want us to enjoy all the blessing He’s provided for us.  However, the blessings are not more important than the Blesser. Here are scriptures to read that will encourage and keep us on track in becoming and remaining true in loving God and each other. 

I John 4:7-12 tells us that love comes from God, God is love, and that He loved us first. 

Matthew 22:34 – 40 tells us how to love God and others. 

I Corinthians 13:1 – 13 tells us what love is and what love is not. 

Put to practice and you will be blessed!

God's Soldiers

October 04, 2022

When God tells you to give up that is when you have permission to lay down and die. But, until then continue to be a good soldier in the army of the Lord. Train with the whole armor of God, use them skillfully and keep clear communication with the Captain of the host. Be alert, pay attention to His instructions and follow them. He has never lost a battle nor have His armies been captured. Our battle cry are songs of praise, we dance in battle because we know the battle is not ours but the Lords. He makes our enemies turn against each other while we watch in awe. GIRD UP, SUIT UP and DON'T RETREAT. God's children don't hold  white flags, we ride white horses. II Chronicles 20:1-23, Ephesians 6:10-18, Revelation 19:11-16

God Is Not A Man That He Should Lie

September 27, 2022

God care about us even when we don’t think He does, His interest in us never fades. When others
forget about you God does not. Just like Sarah when she was barren, her desire was to bare a child.
Many of her young years passed where she could not conceive. But God did promise her and Abraham
that they would be blessed with a son. She heard the Lord’s promise and the timeline He gave.
Sarah got to a point where she became impatient deciding to take matters in her own hands. Just like
we do sometimes when we think much time has passed without any results. She decided to hand her
husband Abraham another woman. How difficult that decision had to have been for her. Desperate,
she had truly become in making such a decision that would later haunt her. Sometimes, we do forget
the promises God makes when we stop walking by faith and start walking by sight. There will be times
in our lives when we don’t like what we see, hear, smell or taste. These are times when we must fight
the good fight of faith and know that God is still on His throne, hears our prayers and that He is not a
man that He should lie. Numbers 23:19


In the Book of Genesis chapter 18 verses 9 through 14 we see God promised Abraham and Sarah they
would have a son. We must believe God when it seems that all odds are against us. God came through
for Sarah in her later years when it was not possible for her to even be fertile, nor for Abraham to be her
delight. But, as the scripture says, Is anything impossible for the Lord? Genesis 18:14. Absolutely, NOT.

Today, we read about the promised son Isaac who was born to Abraham and Sarah in Genesis chapter
21 verses 1 through 6. This child brought joy and hope to both parents. What wonderful results we can
get in trusting God and His promises.


God does not need to remember His promises to us because He doesn’t forget them, we do. Let us ask
the Holy Spirit to bring all the promises we’ve read in God’s word to our remembrance. Let us also put
an effort forth to write them down to be memorized. Let us allow ourselves to become established in
God’s word so that we do not give up. Know our Heavenly Father will not fail us, He will come through
for you as He did Sarah. Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, since He who
promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23


May The Lord Himself Richly Bless You,

From The Ground Up

September 06, 2022

Deep in the depths of the earth no light nor air, without hope and full of despair.  Feeling like Jonah did when he was in the belly of a fish.  Looking at daylight but never seeing the Son.  Fake smiles and laughter forged from a weary soul,

filled with a heart covered with deadly mold (SIN).  Not knowing who or whose I am.  Without fulfillment in what I see every time I look at myself.  Changed locations but still the same because my heart was never changed.  I was far away from who was good and pure; not realizing what He had endured.  Underneath the ground stuck in the mud full of hopelessness I'm feeling like crud.  Crying inside but who would see the agony I would not show.  Like the Samaritan woman, no clarity in life, walking around being looked at with contempt and strife.  So tired of me, so tired to be. 

 

So, I finally called out to the one who said come unto me all you that are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.

The Good Shepherd spoke to me, He saw my heart, I had to confess all my mess.

I began to be washed inside out by His blood without a doubt.  Eyes now wide opened seeing clear my Savior, my God was ever so near. Now I know who I am, a child of God, looking and feeling her best. Confident in God because of His great love towards me.  

First Lady, S. Proctor
