Learning To Love Small Beginnings


Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

Pray for a good attitude                                                                  (You can stamp out the darkness in your life by submitting yourself to the love of Christ Jesus!  Everything about Christ Jesus love is perfect, and He gave us this perfect love when He died on the cross for our sins!  All the power we have comes out of His love for us!  We will have it too when we submit to the will of God by being obedient to him!  Perfect love cast out all fear!  Your attitude will effect every area of your life, by what you choose to fill it up with.  By submitting to the will of God in your life you will bring forth these attitudes: love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.  This is what keeps Satan bound from attacking your life!)                                                                             Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.                                                                                       Pray against a poor attitude                                                       (Pride kills you, because it doesn’t live in the power of God’s love! God’s judgement is against the proud who oppress others to get what they want.If we are not careful, pride will rob us of the humble attitude that allows God to impart his wisdom. Pride makes its own agenda without any consideration of God and others. The proud person sits in judgment on others.God Opposes the Proud, because he knows Pride cannot give us what we want.God’s judgement is against the proud who oppress others to get what they want. Think of yourself as less, and others being more! That way God can work more mighty in you, by way of his Spirit! He will do grate works in you, if you decrease in yourself by allowing the power of the Holy Spirit to do His good works through you!)

Mark 4:31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: 32 But when it is sown, it grows up, and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoot out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.                                                                                                    (God’s love will plant His seeds, and it shall do as it should according to His will!   If we grow to fast in our knowledge of our Lord Jesus, never learning the deep things of God’s heart, we will be destroyed by not being planted deep into the ground!)

Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;                                                                                                              (By having the pure love of Christ Jesus living inside of our hearts; we will desire to do the good works of God.  We will reach out too , and help one another in their grief, and pain!  Making sure that we do not add another burden on to their heart!  We work for God not men.  Working for our Heavenly, and not for men in everything we do, it will keep our hearts close to him!)

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.                        (God is the one who rewards those, who love Him with their whole heart, and delight to do His will!  God will use us in mighty ways, if we seek in Him first in everything we do!  The devil has no authority to mess around with our minds, if we will fill up on His fresh manna, and drink His life giving water everyday!)
