No Other’s Words Or Actions

In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:1-5 NIV

What this means is that there are those who will talk about you and essentially drag your name in the mudd! They may hate on you for no reason at all or have a reason and simply choose to hold a grudge instead of forgiving you. This includes individuals who want to bring gossip and lies about another individual to your footstep……..It’s what you do in these moments that defines you, NO WORDS OR ACTIONS can break the promises God has spoken over your life……..Unless YOU ALLOW it to break you….To whom great fires and callings are birthed within, much spiritual maturity must be gained. And if these moments are coming to your door step, it’s because God is allowing them to see how you will handle the moment. Will you rise above and Lead, or Sink within and follow the others already set on a path of doom….You are your own strength factor….when it’s all said and done will God look at you and say:

Well done my good and faithful servant…. Matthew 25:21

Purity Of God’s Blessings

by Tremayne Blair – tremayneblair.com

1 Timothy 6:3-10

3: If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching

4: they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions

5: and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

6: But godliness with contentment is great gain.

7: For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

8: But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

9: Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

10: For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

I love how God is constantly teaching me because I’m starting to understand more and more why God says that money is the root to ALL evil, not just some but ALL. He also didn’t say it was part of the evil but instead said it was the very root of it. And we all have to be very careful because if we are not, money can quickly become a blind poison to us all. Also polluting the very purity of the blessings God has brought our way. But you can rest assured that God isn’t going to let his purity stay polluted for long, the question is will the blessing become purified because of actions and mentalities we change as individuals, or will it become purified again because God had to break and rebuild you in order for his promise to be fulfilled, because his promise WILL be fulfilled. Be Blessed on this day

To Those Whom Have A Ear To Hear

by Tremayne Blair – tremayneblair.com

This status goes for those who God has spoken to or given instructions to. No matter if its just you yourself, as part of a relationship, or even a marriage….
If God has spoken an instruction over your life Imma about to tell you the best thing you can do in the situation…..LISTEN!!!!B.)
If he is speaking to you that’s because there is an area of your life he wants you to GROW in and have faith in HIM in, and learn in….You can also guarantee that the very area he is instructing you to trust him in is the very area you will be tested THE MOST!!! Now you can do the easy and simple thing and quit or maybe say “this is stupid” and walk away, ect. But a very wise woman, a.k.a Ginny Martin Blair  once told me about a year ago that to walk away from something God has laid on your heart or spoken to you will end you up being worse off than you were in the midst of your test….. Now I’m sure you probably don’t understand the whole situation your going through I’m guessing ……but guess what? that’s EXACTLY  how God wants it!!! Because if YOU understood it then there is nothing GOD could teach you through it, because once you understand it, then at that very moment you take your eyes off Christ and just like Peter in the bible, the moment he took his eyes off Christ and focused his eyes on the chaos around him and of this world, it was at that very moment he began to sink (Mathew 14:22-33)….Not trusting, having no faith, being impatient, and most importantly taking your eyes off Christ can and WILL do the same thing to you…..Here’s another common problem,  people begin to think that if they just ignore it, run from it, or my personal favorite try to hide from it that it will just go away! But here’s the news flash for you, once God speaks, HE WILL get the result he wants, the question is will you let that result come the easy way….or the hard way, because until you allow yourself to “get it” meaning that until you allow yourself to let God teach you, then he will continue, and continue, AND CONTINUE to test you and keep you in the valley. Don’t ever think for a second that you are so high in your life, or prideful, or stuck in your own ways that God can’t break you!!! Even if he has to take everything from you know this, he will do WHATEVER it takes to get your attention!!! You can believe me now or you can believe me later….Now that I’ve freaked you out!! lol!  Let me share some good news with you that I think so many people never stop to even think about because all they begin to get is impatient, frustrated, and complaining with there “Why me Lord” or “I just can’t take this” phase in the middle of there test…but think about it like this for a moment….There’re over 7 BILLION people alive in this world at this very moment, and out of that 7 Billion people that God over see’s he took time out just to spend time with, teach, strengthen and love individually with just one……you…..Now you can run and gossip to as many friends as you want but this is why that is a huge mistake and is the biggest mistake people make in the middle of there test:
A.) Your friend doesn’t know your situation therefore will lead you astray with advice because most of the time the advice they give you is in a natural sense and the problem with that is that your working in a supernatural situation, because if they were suppose to give you advice God would have laid it on there heart to say something to you way before you even approached them…
B.) 9 times out of 10 the person your talking hasn’t been anywhere near the church so at the moment all your really doing is casting your pearls among swine just as scripture tells us.
Bottom line, when he speaks, the best thing you can do is simply listen. Because he will ALLOW you to sit in your valley until you do…

A God Encounter

by Tremayne Blair – tremayneblair.com

MY CONVERSATION WITH A HOMELESS MAN: It’s was about 1:30 in the morning and I couldn’t sleep at all. As I was laying there flipping through channels I got this urge to just get up and do something, so I decided to go Walmart and research some baby mattresses for the newest addition into the family…As I was driving I came to a stoplight. sitting at this particular light waiting for it to turn green I just so happen to look to my right and there was a homeless man sitting on the curb median at a intersection with no shoes on and a black bucket that he had turned upside down playing it like it was a drum. Immediately after seeing this I had to giggle to myself as I thought “he sure did pick an awful hour to try and get money” I continued to stare at this man who seemed to be having an all-out concert with just him and his black bucket, and yet seemed to be so happy….not having a clue what compelled my next action I put my right turn signal on and pulled into fast food parking lot near the median. I walked upped to the homeless man and said “Kinda cold to be sitting out here with a bucket and no shoes at this hour don’t ya think sir?”……”Oh this is a glorious day where having” the man replied. at that moment my instant thought is this man is 4 shades off his rocker cuz it wasn’t even day time to begin with! lol! But I continued to talk to the man for a couple of minutes, and continued to be astonished at just how happy this dude was with him and his black bucket. At this point I looked to the man and said “Well sir I have no cash on me but I would love to buy you a meal if that’s okay?” ….”I would take it young man, I haven’t had a meal since breakfast yesterday”….So I get in my car and drive to the McDonalds at the next lightband get both myself and him a value meal. I get back to the man and give him his meal….having no clue what compelled my next step I suddenly took off my jacket and my shoes making my appearance equal of that of the mans, sat down beside him and we began enjoying our meals…”Sir do you mind me asking you a question?” …”Ask what you wish young man” he replied…”well not to quote the obvious, but here you are In the middle of the night with no coat, no shoes, and no money in your bucket….yet you are by far one of the happiest people I’ve ever met in my entire life, what’s your secret?” As I giggled towards the man….the man replied “that answer is simple kind gentlemen, two things. First is the acceptance that my situation is nobodies fault but my own and I have nobody to blame but myself. The second is the most exciting In the knowing that the best days of my life are soon ahead and coming”…..Upon that statement I sat there puzzled starring at him…”Sir how can you figure that your best days are ahead of you when you have nothing?!?”…..The homeless man looked at me and said “young man your words could never be more true because I do not have anything. no clothes, no money, not anything….but according to the God I serve that’s exactly when he can step in and use you the most, and for that I’m excited and patiently waiting”…I was at a complete loss of words because the fact of the matter is that he was right! what an amazing heart this dude had! At that moment he looked at me, smiled and continued playing on his bucket. I decided to join him in his musical concert and began clapping and tapping on the sidewalk to his beat. Not gonna lie, some of those beats I’m seriously thinking about taking to the studio lol! We shared some more conversation and life stories and After a little jam session and almost 3 hours later I decided it was time to go. I stood up and reached out to shake the mans hand and thank him for a very late night musical concert. As I was attempting to walk away the homeless man grasp my hand tightly in the hand shake and made direct eye contact, there was this still moment of silence and then suddenly the man spoke and said “young man I don’t know who you are, I don’t even know your name. But what I do know is that your gift is gonna change the world for the better” he let go of my hand and simply smile leaving me in a state of Awe yet again. I got in my car and was heading back to my house. As I got to the 3rd stop light I had to pull over because my eyes became consumed with tears! I put the car in park and just sat there and cried from a deep place in my soul because all I could think was I have everything and this man had absolutely nothing, yet he had more joy towards the faith of God’s promises than I’ve ever had….at that moment I began to pray for God to give me a new heart, a deeper heart, a heart that rises in a greater appreciation of him as our Lord & Savior…..it was definitely a night to remember……..Never did make it to WalMart….

Fear, What If, As Long As

by Tremayne Blair – tremayneblair.com

Stop letting FEAR, “WHAT IF”, or “AS LONG AS” be the company of your FAITH

For those of you who have ever had to walk something out in faith, have you ever noticed the VERY first thing that happens when you make the choice to walk something out in faith is that you become fearful? Because for one you are believing God for something, yet have no idea what the result of your faith will be, which i n my opinion is exactly how God wants it because then you are walking in the true guidelines of faith which is “faith being the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1) 2ndly if that wasn’t enough not only do you not know the result of faith but God actually REQUIRES a.k.a COMMANDS a.k.a DEMANDS a.k.a YOU HAVE TO DO IT…..however you want to word it, God says that you HAVE to step into the place of unknowing in order for true faith to be fulfilled…..why? Glad you asked! You have to because without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God!! (Hebrews 11:6)……..Now Satan also knows this neat fact, therefore when he finds out your about to unite your HEART with faith the very first thing he wants to do is plant fear in your MIND, because if he can control your mind he can change your heart (hope u caught that)….because Satan knows that by you stepping into your faith you are also stepping into your promise and God fulfilled destiny……….let me break it down even more simple, but radical……By you stepping TOWARDS God you are walking AWAY from the enemy!! #ClapClapBoutToHaveChurch So of course Satan will try (notice I said try because he’s already defeated, it’s YOU who has to get that mindset) evoke fear because he doesn’t want you to have ANYTHING God has for you. But has not given you a spirit of fear, he has given you POWER, love and a SOUND mind (2 Timothy 1:7) ……..see now why your mind is the FIRST place Satan goes after? But good news because the day God breath the breath of life in you he also breathed the ability for you to be a CONQUERER……So allow me to say it again….
STOP letting FEAR, “WHAT IF”, or “AS LONG AS” be the company of your faith!!”
