The more you focus on what the Father has spoken, the less power distraction will have over you. Remember, Jesus referred the Devil to what the Father said.
It's not about you. It never was and it never will be. It's always been about what God did, what he does and what he will do. It's about Him, not you.
The more you worship him, the more your soul is rejuvenated. As you develop within your heart of a culture of worship, you will naturally produce fruit.
Servants find joy in serving weather they see results or not, because they know that as they serve, they bring honor to the Lord, in serving the Lord Christ
Jesus will never call you to where he hasn't already been. He is where you are now, and already is where he is calling you to. Exercise your faith.
Joy is easy to identify. It is exuberant. Happiness is a state of mind, based on a set of circumstances, whereas joy is birthed from within the heart.
When you truly embrace the heart of the Father you will start thinking like him, and in turn, you will mimic the Father, just like Jesus did.
Man has taken what God has established as valuable (relationship), and has replaced it with things and titles. It's not what you have, it's who you have.
As you spend time with the Father, you will get to know him, and in turn, you will find yourself anticipating the heart of the Father.
For any act of service to be meaningful, it must be served with honor. Honor is the heartbeat of servanthood. Honor is the foundation of the servanthood.
