Word To The Wise
When you feel you are being attacked by the enemy after you have made a confession of faith, keep your mouth closed. The enemy is looking for an opening from the words you will be tempted to speak while being attacked. Jesus gives us an example of how to operate like this in Matthew's gospel. 
Mt. 26:62-63; 27:12-14
Do not give the enemy place, but continue to stand on your confession of faith. Watch God work. The enemy will always lie to you with temporary circumstances. He wants you to act out in your flesh and give him an opportunity to destroy things in your life. You must submit to the Holy Spirit's guidance, be silent until God tells you to speak and/or tells you what to say. God is faithful and has already given you the victory. Don't allow your mouth or flesh to forfeit what God has already done.
Psalm 39:1 "I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue; I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me."
Psalm 141:3 AMP "Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips [to keep me from speaking thoughtlessly]."


Building Right Relationships

Happy New Year! This is the year we need to put our all into whatever God has told us to do. An important part of accomplishing things in the Kingdom is realizing that you can't do it alone. So, this year, we are beginning a new series of lessons covering topics that will help us in building our relationships with others and recognizing when there should not be relationships. There are beneficial and reciprocating relationships and there are negative, suck you dry relationships. We want to see what God's Word has to say about how we are to interact with others in our relationship building.

Looking back over the many relationships I have had the privilege to experience since becoming a citizen in the Kingdom of God, I sometimes wish I would have known the Kingdom principles and wisdom of God that I now know. But, that is all part of the process of life. You learn as you go through life's experiences. One of my goals in sharing these series of lessons with you is to give you the opportunity to learn what I and others have learned without having to go through what we did. If we can learn from the experiences of others, we can avoid their pitfalls and walk in the wisdom that it took others years to experience.

If we are living a Kingdom centered life, with God as our King, then He has something to say about our relationships. Our relationships can affect how we operate in the Kingdom, positively or negatively. We cannot spend the majority of our lives hanging around evil or dysfunction and expect good in our lives.
1Corinthians 15:33 BLB "Do not be misled: "Bad companionships corrupt good morals."

If we are really looking to God as our Source, then He is our Source for every area of life, not just provision. He will direct our relationships. God is very aware of all that takes place in each of our lives. 
Job 31:4 NLT "Doesn't he see everything I do and every step I take?"
Psalms 34:15-16 NLT "The eyes of the LORD watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help. But the LORD turns his face against those who do evil; he will erase their memory from the earth."
Proverbs 5:21 NLT "For the LORD sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes."
Jeremiah 16:17 NLT "I am watching them closely, and I see every sin. They cannot hope to hide from me."

God wants us to keep our relationships with people in proper perspective. Sometimes, we can have a tendency to become unbalanced and put people in the place that is reserved for God only. God must be first in our lives.
Jeremiah 17:5-8 NASB Thus says the LORD, "Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. "For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when prosperity comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, a land of salt without inhabitant. Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD, for he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit.…"
Proverbs 22:17-19 NLT "Listen to the words of the wise; apply your heart to my instruction. For it is good to keep these sayings in your heart and always ready on your lips.I am teaching you today--yes, you--so you will trust in the LORD."
Matthew 22:37-39 BSB Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’…"

God wants  us to use His Word to examine our relationships and discern what is in our lives. There are times in our relationships that we may turn a blind eye to things that are going on with the people in our lives. God wants us to be aware of what is going on around us and in the lives of the people we are in relationship with. 
Hebrews 4:12-13 NLT "For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
Proverbs 23:6-7 KJV "Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee."

2. What are you projecting in your attitude that attracts people to you or repels people from you?

3. What type of person are you?

4. How do you feel about yourself?

5. What obstacles do you need to overcome to become a better person and have better relationships?

6. Are you casting your pearls before swine?
