God said, "...vengeance is Mine. I shall repay." No one is stronger than God! Let God do His job. Humility comes before honor; pride comes before a fall. Seek to think & do only what is right. What hurts you, hurts Him...despite how you feel; He is our Loving Father who cares for us. GOD has your back!
STOP vindictive living!
Evaluate friends to assess if they themselves are striving (& making advancements) towards NEW ventures or if they are immoveable landmarks of the past.
Someone who is fearful or faithless is not worth listening to merely because they are familiar! Someone who says the right things, but does nothing to better their own heart, mind & Life is a human mirage trying to keep you stagnant. If necessary, Love...from a distance.
Analyze every self-thought, self-feeling & every self-action to ascertain if it will make you operate according to the OLD you or the NEW you.
Did you think OR say "I can't", "I don't do that", "That's not me", "I'm afraid", "I don't know", "I don't have the time", "I don't want to do it alone", "This is how I am", "I am not good at that"...or anything that resembles the old you?! The old you was a false mold that was placed upon your soul. Whenever you catch yourself trying to slip back into the old mindset---break free!
Scream: LOOOSE! ME!©
Move forward, mi amigo. -Nada mas. No una mas dia! Take responsibility for your role & then decide to make the decisions that prove that you learned from your mistake. And DO NOT turn back!
Cut off ALL negative, toxic, selfish relationships!
10 Areas to be on Guard For
Shift. Alter. Change. Renovate (in your mind) ANYTHING that is trying to get you to think about things that are contrary to God's Nature. Strive to not take longer than 2 seconds to meditate on lewdness, fear, doubt, malice or negative energy. (2 Corinthians 10: 4-6) Train yourself to think on Lovely, True, Just & Good things. (Philippians 4:8) You cannot BE NEW, until you personally practice NEW level-contemplation!
DO NOT listen to people &/or vices that tell you to "listen to your heart". Jeremiah 17:9 warns that the heart is deceitful among all things. For Wisdom & Protection: we must pray to God continually to ask Him for help to cleanse out all invisible contaminates that are trying to keep us spiritually stagnant. Allow God's Word to be the Guide for your NEW heart.
Life & death is in the Power of your OWN tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) We...were made in the image & likeness of God, Himself (Genesis 1:26, 27). Just like God, we have creative POWER in our mouths. In order to shape your NEW aura, you must become disciplined in speech. If you want to stop birthing adverse situations in your decided NEW Life, initiate NEW verbal expressions.
New dreams & visions
For a NEW YOU to be actual, you need NEW dreams & goals. All hope is not lost. There IS at least one way to better yourself. Take quiet time to think about a realistic dream &/or vision that you can pray to God for strategy to finish/accomplish. Your NEW Life depends on it... (Proverbs 29:18)
If you want everything to stay the same in your Life, stay around the same people. If you want real NEWness to be enacted in your Life, make research, restructuring & networking your NEW best friends! (Isaiah 43:19)
New methods, standards & responses
Your old procedures got you to this point. What you used to find acceptable got you this far. Your former replies produced that expired reputation. To realize the NEW version of you that you say that you are ready for, you are going to have to pray to God for the stratagems that will cause you to shed those obsolete processes. The NEW you requires seriousness, boldness & courage. With God all things are possible, if you believe! (Matthew 19:26)
Even in the most sacred arenas, there is a high probability that you will not encounter a genuine, massive, cheer-leading squad as you LOOOSE the old ways & engage your NEW applications for Life-advancement. Not every smile will be pure. Not every celebratory congrats will be heart-felt. In this NEW place, The Holy Spirit will tell you who is really happy for your NEW, accomplished feats. Just ask Him to show you who is really for you; He WILL show you. God endorses your NEW that is based on His Word. God will protect your NEW, if you reciprocatingly engage Him. (John 16:13)
It is guaranteed that you need to be in constant communication with God, our Father. He is our Comforter, our Counselor, our Help in times of trouble. Wisdom comes from Him. Remember to quiet your spirit & await God's answer(s) for you, given by His Holy Spirit.
1 Pray earnestly to God in all things, at all times.
2 Not everyone will understand your change or
celebrate it. Embrace this.
When you begin to exhibit your improved growth-change in conversations with other people, do not depend on them to connect with your excitement. If they do connect, GREAT! If the opposite occurs, do not allow their melancholic response(s) to discourage you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regardless of WHO they are...
The enemy will always try to punk you down & attempt to convince you that you can not do what you were actually born to do. The devil is deceptive & tries daily, (to get back at God) by trying to influence YOU to use your own God-given power to destroy your own life, whether it be through negative thoughts, negative speech or negative actions. Smarten up! Submit to God & resist the devil's suggestive thoughts!
3 The enemy, the devil, will IMMEDIATELY try to
discourage you from walking in NEW faith and
your NEW, correlating actions!
4 You have to study God's Word habitually to
keep His Promises fresh & ALIVE in your mind,
heart & soul.
What you think about the most has the potential to rule your Life if you submit your heart & way to it. Take whatever time available to read The Holy Bible & get the Word in your heart. True belief in God's Word is a weapon in spiritual warfare (Ephesians 6:10-18). Without God's Word seeded in your heart, you will be an open target for the enemy to steal, kill & destroy your Life (John 10:10).
Stop using what other people do as YOUR excuse! With God's Word, become stronger in your mind & heart! Just because they are mean &/or inconsiderate doesn't mean you have to be. Be tenacious in your NEW thoughts & relentless in your NEW actions!
5 Just because people do not change positively
does not mean YOU can not change positively.
6 Creating your NEW Life will take constant &
continued work (mentally, emotionally,
financially, spiritually) on your part.
Anticipate adversity. LEARN how to encourage yourself. Do not be discouraged by what is seen now. Do not grow weary in improving your thought life. Do not allow emotions to rule you. Only believe what God said...for you... IS possible.
(#1) In this place of NEW, it will be easier to recognize those individuals in your Life that are always asking you for something. Evaluate to understand if this relationship (platonic, personal or professional) is one-sided, with YOU bearing all the weight to give, give, give to the other individual(s). If they can be appropriately identified as an opportunist, start saying "no". When their M.O. is halted, these people-parasites will excuse themselves...from your NEW place in Life. Just remember: it was the loss of their power of manipulation over you that made them leave.
1 Parasitic Relationships of ANY type...
2 Influences that possess different belief systems...
(#2) The world that we live in is extremely diverse. There is nothing wrong with embracing the diversity of people in their own right. There IS a concern when you allow someone, who believes differently than what your spiritual foundation indicates, to influence you out of what you believe.(1 Timothy 6:3-4) Your NEW spiritual-strength will be diminished if you consider the opinions of man-kind over the Word of God. (2 Corinthians 6:14)
(#6) Every great war unfortunately had causalities. The question is: are you willing to lay aside every hindrance that is trying to suffocate the NEW spiritual Life out of you? If it is not a marriage, all other relationships are easier to release, if only temporarily. (Hebrews 12:1-3) Realize who genuinely can endorse the positive, restructured, NEW you & LOOOSE what & who is trying to keep you stuck in the ways of old!
(1 Corinthians 15:33)
6 People who won't accept & coordinate to YOUR change...
(#7) For others being stagnant, refer to #5. For yourself, refer to #5.
(Hebrews 11:6) (1 Corinthians 14:38)
4 The attacks of fear , pride & doubt...
(#4) Matthew 13:21 warns that trials & persecutions WILL come because of the Word of God that you are receiving into your NEW heart through your NEW Mind that you share with Christ Jesus. (1 Corinthians 2:16).
We must anticipate adversity to the NEW us that is spiritually exercising to become strong! To win, know these things:
* God did not give us the spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). If fear is trying to suffocate your psyche, it's an attack from the devil to discourage your NEW attempts at spiritual change. * When it's time for change, pride can be hiding inside of us. Remember, there's always room for self-improvement. The NEW you MUST embrace positive change & constructive-criticism. (Daniel 5:20). * Lastly, without faith in God, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God (Hebrews 11:6). God IS His Word.
(John 1:1) Don't let doubt sucker-punch you out of your NEW place. Consistent faith in God's Word with NEW actions applied will bring eventual stability to your situations. (James 1:7, 8)
(#3 )For a reference on what to do, go back & look at #1 in relation to parasitic people. Manipulators are individuals that are gifted in subtly forcing people to do what they want. A simply recipe for you is this: if you don't want to do it & if The Holy Spirit did NOT tell you to do it when you asked Him if you should, then provide your sweet, kind, soft "No." Your NEW you will not endure if you give in to 'people-pleasing' peer-pressure.
3 The temptation to 'people-please'...
(#9) This is a direct assassin to your NEW mind, your NEW heart, your NEW spirit, your NEW goals. The Word of God is what we should submit to. (Luke 10:16) If we are compromising to things that are contrary to what God indicated that we should do, then the NEW us will eventually dissipate. Refer to #3, if you have opportunity for improvement when it comes to compromising what you really believe.
(#8) Possibly unbeknownst to you, there is a person or a people who are covertly watching you. They secretly watch you due to hidden motives to 'out-do' you &/or attempt to discredit the NEW you that you've become. These people are inescapable & their competition spirit &/or 'tear down' spirit has nothing to do with you. Let us keep our spiritual eyes & focus on what Jesus did & says so that we can walk in a Success Model for NEW-executed Living (Hebrews 12: 2-4)
(#10) Very key to keep in mind: when each person is tempted, they are presented with their own individualized temptation that is according to the evil desires that the devil knows is enticing to you. (James 1:14) The NEW you will always be under spiritual attack. And temptation will generally be the 1st line of demonic-defense (in addition to fear, confusion, lies & doubt). You do not have to submit to the temptation! Submit to God (FIRST), resist the evil presentation & the temptation will eventually flee. (James 4:7) You HAVE TO BE STEADFAST (unmovable) in your firm "NO!"
10 Temptations, in general...
(#5) We are made in the image & likeness of God our Father. In all of the Power that Jesus died & Resurrected Himself just to share with us...God still let us keep our power of choice. People have the personal choice to refuse to change; Adults can refuse to enhance their personal-conduct, their spiritual & social well-being. These same people are the owners of the results of their decided stagnation.
(1 Corinthians 14:38) NEWness cannot exist in stagnation...
