》EXCLUDE NEGATIVITY: INCLUDE PEACE IN CHRIST !
Did you notice Psalms 23 starts with "The LORD...makes me to lie down in green pastures...and lead me besides still waters" before "HE restores my soul" and "HE leads me in the paths of righteousness". What's that mean? Let me explain.
In order for GOD to work amongst HIS People, it's important that HE first has the people's heart-ready! #Heartfirst. When GOD wanted to establish HIS Plan for Abraham, HE called him out! Why? Because GOD knew HIS Plan cannot be fulfilled in the midst of his family where they practised paganism. But for some, HE let's them be where they are, and uses them right where they are! (Like the man with 'Legion' of demons in Mark 5:1-20) But regardless, GOD knows what's best where the ground (heart) is fertile and it can produce a rich harvest of His Grace and fulfill the Kingdom mandate!
The main objective for heart-ready is to exclude 'negativity'. Negativity can be a huge hindrance for GOD to work! Ok, whether it be your job, home, ministry or any other area, GOD desires for you to be at PEACE. • • •
I had a friend recently, go on talk about how she was ill-treated, mistreated and betrayed by her friends whom she so trusted. Now, I couldn't tell her to please 'keep quiet', as she is a dear friend and I respect her. However, I became increasingly silent and just kept mum, without giving any responses. She understood I am practically not interested in her conversation, and she stopped her complaints.
No matter, what your life situation is today, know that GOD is at work-whether you see it or not. But l e t your heart be at rest and allow G O D to lead you besides still waters, before HE restores you and leads you to HIS Will.

Philippians 4:6-7 "Don’t worry..instead, pray..and thank him for all he has done...Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His Peace will guard your hearts and minds..." -NLT.

Se estivéssemos mais atentos à Sua grandeza, não iríamos nos preocupar com mais nada. Tudo fica não indiferente perto de Ti
E se todo esse louvor não Te bastar, cem bilhões de vezes mais eu vou cantar 🎵
