                                                               THINK FIRST

                            HOW ONE BECOMES AND REMAINS OF GOOD CHARACTER

    This topic will be relatively short. What I want to do with this post is to show how we can remain in good standing with our Lord. Two things, keep us in good standing this to strive for transparency, along with truthfulness. When these two things match up a relationship in and with the Lord is solid. It’s when we don’t do both, it will begin to stray from the center of GODS Will. To keep both of those traits up front One would do well by adapting this thing called THINK FIRST to you quiver.  Hope this will be inspiring to you. Idk exactly when I will return. However it should be with in the week. Until then GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                              THINK FIRST 

                                       OPTAIN N REMAIN OF GOOD CHARACTER 

    What I will do is a play on the words THINK FIRST. I will each letter and give you a word with a definition that we can apply to our lives or add to it. Without future delay. 

    T-HOUGHTFULNESS.

    [ THE DESIRE AND ABILITY TO BRING OUT THE BEST OF SELF AND OTHERS. BY USING YOUR TOOL GOD GAVE YOU. HE WILL ALSO PRESENT THE OPPORTUNITIES THEMSELVES. ONCE THIS BECOME FIRST NATURE. WHICH WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU ARE MAKING POSITIVE INSTALLMENTS IN THOSE YOU DO NOT KNOW. AS YOU MASTER THIS ABILITY. THE HOPE IS BY OTHERS WATCHING WHAT YOU DO AND FIGURE OUT WHY. THEN ITS LIKELY TO BECOME CONTAGIOUS. THIS WILL BENEFIT THEM AS WELL. WHEN DONE CORRECTLY EACH WILL BEGING TO SEE THE CYCLE REPEATED.] 

    This is the conclusion of todays post.I wanted to give you a flavor of what this topic will look like.  I hope you will enjoy this time. Like I said this topic will be over very quick. Until I get back by this weekend. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                              THINK FIRST 

     

    H-ELPFUL

    WORDS THAT ONE USES THAT EFFECT OTHERS. WORDS THAT SPEAK POSITIVITY INTO OTHERS MIND, THEY ALSO SPEAK TO THE SPIRIT MAN WITH WORDS THAT EDIFY AND ENCOURAGE. WORDS THAT ALSO INSPIRE THROUGH INSPIRATION ONE DOSEN’T GIVE UP WHEN THINGS GET HARD LIKE MOTIVATION DOES. WE MUST BE CONSCIOUS AWARE THAT OUR WORDS ARE LIKELY MORE WAY MORE POWERFUL THEN YOU THINK. JESUS SAID *ALL AUTHORITY IS GIVEN TO ME IN HEAVEN AND EARTH* [THIS SAME AUTHORITY HE GAVE US HE ALSO TOOK US BACK TO THE GARDEN WHERE HE GAVE MAN DOMINION OVER ALL THINGS] RECALLING JESUS ALSO TOLD US WE WOULD DO GREATER THINGS. THEREFORE BECAUSE OF THE AUTHORITY OUR WORDS CARRY POWER TO CHANGE THINGS. WE WILL INFLUENCE PEOPLE SHORT TERM AND LONG TERM. LETS MAKE SURE THAT OUR INFLUENCE IS *HELEFUL* 

    THAT IS OUR WORD FOR THE DAY. AS ALWAYS ITS A JOY TO HAVE YOU STOP BY. I WILL BE BACK IN A FEW DAYS. UNTIL THEN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                              THINK FIRST 

     

    I-NSPIRES 

    WHOSE WORDS THAT ARE TRULY INSPIRED BY GOD AS THE SCRIPTURES ARE (2 TIMOTHY 3:16) WHEN EVER WHEREVER POSSIBLE WHICH SHOULD BE ALWAYS. LET THE WORDS SPOKEN BE SEASONED FROM/BY THE WORD OF GOD. THEY SHOULD ALWAYS BE USED TO BUILD CHARACTER. INSPIRED WORDS WILL ALSO HELP THE OVERWHELMED BY SPEAKING THE ABILITY TO OVERCOME THE OVERWHELMING. THEY ALSO SPEAK VICTORY TI THE VICTIM. THEY WILL ALWAYS GIVE ONE THE INTERNAL STRENGTH INFUSED BY FAITH TO PICK UP YOUR CROSS AND CONTINUE TO WALK IN YOUR CALLING. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                               THINK FIRST 

    N-EEDFUL

    THE WORDS WE SPEAK. TAKE STOCK OF. WE ALREADY KNOW THE POWER OF WORDS. SO BE WISE WHILE SPEAKING TO SOMEONE. HOWEVER WHEN ONE DOES SPEAK. MAKE SURE THEY ARE TRULY NEEDED. IF SO MAKE SURE THE WORDS YOU SPEAK ARE USEFUL IN SOME WAY. IT MAY BE PHYSICALLY SPEAKING OR SPEAKING TO ONES SPIRIT MAN. WORDS CAN BE USEFUL BUT ONLY IF THEY ATE SPOKEN AT THE RIGHT TIME. TIMING TRULY IS EVERYTHING IN LIFE. ESPECIALLY OUR SPIRITUAL REALM. ALWAYS BE AWARE TO BE CREATIVE. WORK IT THROUGH YOUR MIND. CONSIDER THAT YOUR WORDS WILL HAVE A COST FOR OTHERS. WHEN YOU USE OUR WORDS THOUGHTFULLY IT WILL GIVE THEM THE ABILITY TO GIVE RELIEF FROM THEIR  ISSUES. ALWAYS MAKE SURE OUR WORDS ARE UPLIFTING NOT JUDGMENTAL. LASTLY ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE WORDS SPOKEN ARE DIRECTED FROM GOD AND MAKE SURE THEY BRING COMFORT. NEVER NEVER REACTING TO ONES CIRCUMSTANCES BUT ALWAYS ACTING TO THEM. REACTING SHOWS LITTLE SELF CONTROL. FOR THEY SPEAK USING THEIR LEFT SIDE OF THE BRAIN THE EMOTIONAL SIDE. RIGHT SIDE IS LOGICAL SIDE. IM NOT SAYING YOU CANT BE EMOTIONAL WITH LOGIC. 

    SO AS ONE IS IN MINISTRY. ONE NEEDS TO BE KEENLY UNDERSTANDING OF THESE PRINCIPLES OF THINK FIRST AND MAKE SURE YOUR WORDS ARE NEEDED. THEN ALLOW GOD TO DIRECT YOUR PATH. I WILL BE BACK IN DAY OR SO. I PRAY ALL IS WELL FOR MY FAMILY OF GOD. UNTIL I RETURN TY FOR THAKING THE TIME TO LET ME BORE YOU. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                               THINK FIRST 

    K-IND 

    KIND WORDS ARE ALWAY APPROPRIATE AND ALWAYS APPRECIATED. THESE WORDS ARE FILLED WITH COMPASSION. AS IF IT WAS YOUR SORROW. THAT MAY MEAN THINKING OF ONES EMOTIONS WHEN DEALING WITH AT LEAEST AT THE TIME SEEMED BAD. THEN PERHAPS YOU HAVE ALREADY GONE THROUGH IT. IDK IF YOU DID TRY TO FLY SOLO AND IT DID NOT TURN OUT GOOD, OR YOU DID THE RIGHT THING. SO TAPPING INTO YOUR EXPERIENCES MAY BE PAINFUL. BUT FROM THE PIT OF OUR STOMACH TRUE WORDS OF KINDNESS ARE OBTAINED TO MINISTER. ALWAYS CARING SENSITIVELY SPEAKING WORDS THAT BREED HOPE. HOPE GIVES ONE THAT GLIMMER THAT SPARK THAT COULD START THEM ON THEIR WAY BACK TO THE LORD. FOR HE IS THE TRUEST N PUREST ANSWER. THESE WORDS SHOULD BE SATURATED WITH LOVE. KIND WORDS FIND THE BEST OF A BROKEN PERSON AND THEN SPEAKS SPIRITUAL TRUTHS HEALING WORDS. THIS WILL GIVE THE BROKEN A PLACE TO CLING TO OR START FROM BOTH TO IMPROVE ONES CONDITION THESE ARE ENCOURAGING WORDS ALSO KNOW AS EDIFICATION. 

    THAT TODAYS WORD. I AM SURE YOU HAVE OTHER WAYS OF KINDNESS. FEEL FREE TO POST THEM HERE. I WILL TRY N GET BACK TOMORROW. UNTIL THE MERCY GRACE N LOVE.  GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                              THINK FIRST

     

    F-AITHFUL  OUR WORDS THAT WE SPEAK TO OTHERS IN LINE WITH GOD. KINDA LIKE FOR THOSE OF US WHEN WE PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS. WHEN WE PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS. WE ARE SAYING THAT JESUS HIMSELF WOULD HAVE SPOKEN THE WORDS. WHEN OUR WORDS THAT WE’RE IN-LINE, INTUNE WITH GOD WE ARE SAYING THE SAME THING.

    ACTUALLY JESUS SPOKE OF THAT WHEN HE SAID *YOU WILL BE PUT IN FRONT OF PEOPLE FOR MY NAME SAKE. HAVE NO FEAR WHAT TO SAY FOR I WILL GIVE YOU THE WORDS TO SAY*HERES SOMETHING WE OFTEN FORGET THAT OUR WORDS CAN BE NEGATED BY OUR WALK. REMEMBERING THAT JESUS SAID BE A WITNESS AND A TESTIMONY. WITNES BEING OUR WALK AND ALSO OUR TALK. IT IS RELATIVELY EASY TO TALK THE TALK BACKING IT UP WITH THE WALK SHOWS WHAT YOU REALLY ARE. 

    NOW YOUR WORDS CARRY LIFE CHANGING SUPERNATURAL POWER. NOW OUR WORDS BEING CONSISTENT WITH THE LORDS AND THE BIBLE. HERES PART OF THE FAITHFUL. YOU NOT ONLY ARE CONSISTENT MY YOUR CONSTANT. YOUR WORDS MAY NOT BE EXACTLY PHRASED NOR HAVE THE EXACT. HOWEVER TO THOSE NEAR BY OR THE ONE YOU ARE MINISTERING TO (WE ARE ALWAYS MINISTERING). THEY WILL HEAR THE SAME LOVE AND FEEL YOUR SENSITIVITY. YOU DO NOT WAVIER FROM THE TRUTH. SOME THAT ARE THERE IN THE NAME OF GOD YET HAVE THEIR OWN  AGENDA AND INJECT THEIR OPINION. OUR WORDS DO NOT HAVE OPINIONS NOR ARE THEY JUDGMENTAL. BECAUSE YOU A FAITHFUL GOD WILL PROVIDE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU. FAITHFUL WITH LITTLE MASTER OVER MUCH. ITS A EQUATION ONCE FIGURED OUT THE MORE ONE UNDERSTANDS GODS FAITHFULNESS TO CONTINUE TO ALLOW US TO BE KINGDOM BUILDERS. THIS MEANS MORE LIVES TO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE TO. AS ONE SPEAKS SPIRITUAL THE SPIRIT MAN. 

    GOD IS BEEN WORKING ON EVERYTHING TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE PRIVILEGE AND HONOR OF JOINING HIM BUILDING HIS KINGDOM. HE HAS BEEN WORKING ALL THE DETAILS OUT TO ACCOMPLISH HIS WILL. AS LONG AS WE REMAIN FAITHFUL WE WILL SEE THINGS NO ONE ELSE HAS SEEN. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO STAY IN LOCK STEP ( PICK UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME) AS HE IS GETTING YOU AND THE ONE  WHO WILL LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS. THIS IS CALLED TWO THINGS. FIRST GODS DEVINE APPOINTMENT FOR BOTH PARTIES. ALSO INTERVENTION FOR THE ONE WE WILL TALK TO. BOTH ARE MISSD BY US NOT TE ONE WE ARE TO BREATH INTO SPIRITUAL LIFE. 

    THERES SO MUCH MORE TO SAY ABOUT FAITHFULNESS BEYOND THE ONE I SPOKE OF. MY THOUGHT WAS THAT WITHOUT SPEAKING TO THE UNSAVED OR A CHILD THAT LOST THEIR WAY. NOTHING ELSE IS ON THAT PLAIN. IM NOT SAYING ALL TYPES OF FAITHFULNESS ARE NOT IMPORTANT OR NOT NEEDED. AS THEY ARE. NONE OF THEM CAN TAKE AWAY YOUR SALVATION. THAT TO ME HAS TO BE A PRIORITY IN OUR LIVES. 

    I WILL LEAVE YOU HERE. IDK WHEN I WILL BE BACK. UNTIL THEN GODSPEED THANKS FOR DROPPING BY. BLESSINGS ONE PD.      

                                             HAPPY RESURRECTION SUNDAY.

                                                               THINK FIRST 

     

    I-NSIGHTFUL. INTELLECTUALLY DOES OUR WORDS BRING FORTH SPIRITUAL TRUTHS/REALITIES. OUR WORDS SEEING THE BENEFITS OF RELATIONSHIP WILL ALWAYS DIRECT OUR WORDS IN THAT DIRECTION. THEREFORE OUR WORDS SHOULD STIMULATE A DESIRE, TO LOOK TO BUILD MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF RELATIONSHIPS.  THESE WORDS SHOULD ALSO SPEAK TO RELATIONSHIPS WITH FELLOW BELIEVERS. ARE WORDS SHOULD CHALLENGE NOT TO BE AVERAGE BUT TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. BEYOND THE REALM OF OBEDIENCE BUT TO STEP INTO FAITH HENCE  DEEPER INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALM. ALL STEPS DEEPER INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALM IS ONE MORE STEP IN BUILDING A NEW OR DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. OUR WORDS OF INSIGHTFULNESS SHOULD BREAD KINGDOM BUILDERS. THE WORDS WE SPEAK SHOULD ALSO BRING ONE TO SEEK KNOWLEDGE AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO SEEK UNDERSTANDING. OUR WORDS SHOULD BREED CONFIDENCE BY MAKING SURE THEY HAVE LEARNED WHAT IS GOOD WELL ( BEING INFORMED) THEREFORE SPIRITUALLY CORRECT THEY AND WILL MAKE SOLID DECISIONS.  AS THEY WILL DEVELOP MEANINGFUL RELATIONS IN CHRIST. THIS WAS INSIGHTFUL’S DESIRE FROM THE VERY FIRST WORD SPOKE. 

    THIS IS WHAT I HAVE ON INSIGHTFUL. ONLY FEW MORE POSTS AND WE WILL BE DONE. THX FOR COMING ALONG. UNTIL I RETURN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                              THINK FIRST 

     

    R-IGHTIOUS MEANS BEING RIGHT WITH GOD. OUR WORDS SHOULD DETERMINE THAT THE ONE WE ARE SPEAKING IS ACTUALLY A CHILD OF GOD. IS THAT PERSON SAVED? SO FIRST OUR WORDS SHOULD ME FIND OUT WHERE ONE STANDS WITH OUR GOD. ARE WORDS SHOULD BE ABLE TO HELP OTHERS TO EMRACE THEIR HONOR UNBELIEVABLY PRIVILEGE TO BE A CHILD OF GOD THROUGH HIS SON. OUR WORDS SHOUD BE BRING CONDENSATION HENCE BRING SHAME  YET OUR WORDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS MAY POINT OUT A PROBLEM BUT ARE NOT TO BRING SORROW HURTFUL BUT EXPRESSING THEIR RELATIONSHIP ISSUES LOVINGLY  ANOTHER THING WE HAVE NOT ADDRESSED IS HOW JESUS SEES THIS FROM THE THRONE. I CAN IMAGINE WHERE JESUS  WOULD SAY WELL DONE MY CHILDD N OTHERS LEFTHIM  IN TEARS AS HE FEEL. THE PAIN YOU WILL HAVE BASED ON OUR ACTIONS. 

    OUR WORDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS SHOULD ALWAYS SPEAK TO THE HEART OF MEN NOT SO MUCH THE LOGICAL SIDE. THESE SAME WORDS SHOULD SHOW OR SPEAK TO A DEPENDENCE UPON THE LORD FOR EVERYTHING.  THEREFORE BEING ABLE TO ENCOURAGE OR EDIFY THE SPIRIT MAN. OUR WORDS SHOULD BRING THE EXPECTATIONS OF NEW IMPROVED RELATIONSHIPS IN AND THROUGH OUR LORD. YET ALSO BRING OTHERS TO REVELATION THAT THE BYPRODUCTOF THESE RELATIONSHIPS ARE PEACE JOY HAPPINESS CONTENTMENT TO PUCH FORWARD ALSO SEEKING TO PLEASE GOD. OUR WORDS CAN SPEAK TO BEING ONE IN CHRIST OR PUSHUNG ONE AWAY. OBVIOUSLY THE WORDS OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILITH MUCH. THEREFORE WORDS OF NEGATIVITY ARE MORE THEN LIKELY NOT RIGHTEOUS. DO OUR WORDS SPEAK TRUTH AND LIGHT MOST DEFINITELY TO THE ONE WHO IS THE SOURCE OF ALL THINGS GOOD.

    YOU AND I COULD CHOOSE TO IGNORE OUR WORDS CARRY POWER. POWER TO BE CALLED A CHILD OF GOD. THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE HEARTS BOTH DIRECTIONS. JUST AS OUR LACK OF WORDS TO SOMEONE BY NOT FINDING OUT BOUT THEIR SALVATION IS UNTHINKABLE TO ME.  YET NO WORDS OF SALVATION WOULD GREATLY MISUNDERSTAND HOW THE CHAIN OF EVENTS AND WHOS PLAYING THEIR PARTS. GUIDING US INTO KNOWING GOD ASKS US TO JOIN  HIM IN KINGDOM BUILDING YES EVEN WE CAN BE AS JESUS SPOKE YOU ARE EITHER FOR ME OR AGAINST ME. HE ALSO SAID TO BELIEVERS THAT A FRIEND OF THE  WORLD IS NO FRIEND OF MIND.  SO ARE OUR  WORDS MAKING DISCIPLES AND PLEASING TO GOD OR NOT. 

    THIS CONCLUDES TODAYS WORD. RIGHTEOUS. ALSO A DEEPER MEANING IS THE LORD IS SANCTIFING US SETTING US APART MAKING US HOLY. EMBRACE THE RACE. IDK WHEN I WILL BE BACK BUT NOT TO LONG. THX FOR DROPPING IN. UNTIL I RETURN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                               THINK FIRST 

    SPIRIT FILLED 

     

    S-PIRT FILLED words exhibit a meaningful relationship with GOD in GOD through GOD  Does our words allow us to be led by the Holy Spirit? Her words been based upon the fruit of the spirit? Is your love, kindness, caring, comfort in our words? Are your words season in such a way that those that you minister to understand that you have put in a considerable amount of time learning the language of GOD. Our words should speak of truth, and the value of learning about the truth. John, 14:6. Our words should also show that we are people of good moral character ( Not just a charter). Our words should show you are one that speaks to the confidence that we have in our LORD. In doing so our confidence should produce confidence and others. Our words should be spoken in such a way that they also draw people closer to GOD . Do we speak words that induce a desire to learn more about GOD through the reading of his book. Also, do they encourage them to find others who are further a long their walk with GOD Our words should also encourage them to take time to learn through their experiences with GOD. Our words should also encourage everyone to use the FAITH they already have. As they grow in the LORD and have their own experiences through HIM, their FAITH also grow.The words we utter should also encourage others to pursue a relationship that is pleasing to God. We know the best way to accomplish that is by using our FAITH. The words that we speak should also inspire others to be SPIRIT Filled as well as freed by the SPIRIT Are we teaching others to pursue a love relationship with GOD not just by our words but also our WALK.  We want to be an encourager to others to allow GOD to exhibit HIMSELF through their ACTIONS as well. Becoming DOERS of the WORD not just HEARERS only. 

    THIS CONCLUDES TODAYS TEACHING ON SPIRIT FILLED WORDS. WE ARE ALMOST DONE. IDK WHAT EXACTLY GOD WOULD HAVE BE BRING FORTH. I WANT TO TELL YOU ALL HOW AMAZING YOU ARE. YOU MAKE THIS OLE COUNRY BOY FEEL LIKE WE ARE FAMILY. TY FOR DROPPING IN. UNTIL I RETURN. GODSPEED ONE LOVE PD

                                                               THINK FIRST 

    T-RANSFORMING 

    TRANSFORMING WORDS MUST BE TIME SENSITIVE. THEY SHOULD BE SPOKEN AT THE TIME WHERE IT WILL MAKE THE GREATEST IMPACT. MUCH LIKE CHRIST WE MUST BE MASTER OF OUR DOMAIN. CAPITALIZING ON OUR CIRCUMSTANCES. TRANSFORMING WORDS SHOULD RELEASE GODS POWER INTO ONES LIVE. WE SHOULD BE LEAD BY THE SPIRIT SHOULD REVEAL ONES IMPORTANCE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD 

    THE SPOKEN WORD HAS GREAT POWER AND SPOKEN AT THE RITE TIME AND RITE REASON WILL ALWAYS BE EFFECTIVE TO ACCOMPLISH PURPOSE AND OFTEN MORE. IT CAN BE LIFE CHANGING. THERES A REASON FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN. IF OUR WORDS ARE UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE SON. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. YOU/ME/US CAN ALSO BE TRANSFORMED BY THE READING OF GODS WORDS. 

    THIS IS MY CONCLUSION OF THINK FIRST. IF ANYTHING PLEASE BEFORE YOU DO A THING IN THE KINGDOM TAKE TIME TO THINK FIRST BEFORE YOUR NEXT MOVE.  IF WE CAN DO THIS WE WILL BE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL IN THE KINGDOM BUILDING. IDK WHAT MY NEXT TOPIC WILL BE. THAT SAID I AM SO BLEST THAT SO MANY OF YOU TOOK YOUR TIME AND SHARED IT WITH ME. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD
