Good morning, afternoon and evening wherever you are in the world. Seeking God and the kingdom that’s already been given us requires change. No one can receive valuables or something different without changing. The same behaviors and action begets the same things we received in the past. Righteousness is a way of life that requires doing things Gods way, canceling our ways. Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Being called into Leadership, having no limitations on being who you were created to be. How many of us are called? But how many of us answer the calling on our lives? We have to move out of our own way so God can use the “Greater Works in you” to lead a nation.
James 4:8 says, Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded (this is scripture). http://wp.me/P1I3KO-FfK
Friendships and relationships are the same. Have you ever noticed your friendships changing? As we change relationships change. Some may end, some are paused, and some may become stronger, but the fact that we notice the changes makes the difference. By noticing the difference in ourselves and lives awareness opens, which brings self knowledge and understanding of ourselves. Are the friendships and relationships were attracting God like or are they as James stated in need of washing and letting go? The coming and going of friends and relationships tell us much about ourselves, because the people we mingle with daily are mirroring images of ourselves. We tend to have like characteristics which is why were drawn into lessons together.
However, we come closer to Godly relationships as we let go of those things God has required of us. Jesus and His inner circle are a great relationship, for family, friends, marriages, and work environments to focus on today, after all He is the truth, the way, and the light that brings change! Amen!
I remember talking with family members who had been incarcerated, asking them how many Jews (Hebrews) they met when they were in jail. This was to prove a point without doing a statistical research although I went on and did the research any way. You will find the links at the bottom of this writing. However both of their answers was the same, there were none. The reason I asked the question and I am posing it to the readers is, because the Jewish community always seemed to thrive with success no matter what circumstance they encountered.
Many of them still believe Jesus was a prophet, but there are quite a few converting to Christianity in this day and time. The point presented is to increase the awareness of their dedication to teaching their children and families the very scripture presented today along with teaching them the entire Torah. The Torah includes the first five book of The bible which are Genesis, Exodus, Duet. and Numbers. The Jewish families and communities by generations are known to reach far greater success rates in life, because of the family unity and education they persist in. Often you will hear those having legal problems or medical problems being served by jewish lawyers and doctors. The scriptures given this morning says in Duet. 6:6-7 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. As we use the word the Holy Spirit gets involved because we are redeemed through Jesus. We have the three-fold power pack working in our favor concerning family and children as we believe and apply the word obeying and sitting at the dinner table having Godly discussions letting our family and children know they matter by taking time and demonstrating love from Gods understanding. Change can only come through self-examination. It only takes one to begin and Jesus says in Matthew 5:17 that he did not come to abolish the law nor the prophets but to fulfill them it is necessary to teach the commandments to the children. Hug a child today, God said suffer not the little ones bring them to Him (Jesus) they are our future. Even adults they have a child in them that needs embracing, it’s never to late to start over. God is a God of forgiveness and He loves us beyond our faults.
Amen let JESUS USE you with spreading the word and love today!

Where there is unity blessings are flowing. Unity in mind, unity in heart, unity in love, unity in family, unity in brotherhood, and unity in communities.
Today we release burdens to receive the blessing of peace and unity God has already given us. We take responsibility as children of God by sharing the blessing of unity, love, and peace given to us.
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe.
It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
even life forevermore.
