When we work together and are on the same accord there is nothing that we can't accomplish. We have to learn to fight with each other and not against each other. Everything is not a competition or a contest. Someone doesn't always have to win. You should be able to lean on your fellow man in times of need but nowadays people are so mean and selfish. We want to see each other hurt and fail. The Bible tells you if we come together we can do whatever we imagine yet we continue to be divided. We live in country that was started by a group people who wanted to be able to serve God the way they saw fit, they said it and it was done. We live in a country where a group of people strove for civil rights and today we have a black president, they said it and it was done. You live in a country where you can put your mind to anything and accomplish it, just say it and let it be done. We are our own worst enemies. You put stumbling blocks in your brothers way not realizing that we are one and when a limb is cut off the whole body suffers.We need to stop waiting until diaster strikes to be united.
(The Tower of Babel)
1And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
If God be for you who can be against you? No weapon formed against those who serve God shall prosper. If you trust in God nothing can stop you from succeeding. You may believe in God but ask yourself if trust in him and believe me there is a difference. You must remove all doubt from your heart and believe when you ask God for something that it shall come to past. Why waste your time asking God for things if you don't believe he will answer your prayers? Maybe i'm just confident in my faith for the God i strive to serve but i believe if he said i can have whatsoever i saith, i can and i will. I believe that if said no weapon formed against me shall prosper, it won't. Sometimes you have to remind yourself of Gods promises and remember that he is not man that he should lie. The bible says your heavenly Father knoweth what ye are in need of. But first seek the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all things shall be added unto you.
29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
17No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Remember when you are asking God for things the Bible says for unto whom much is given of him much shall be required. They say with great power comes great responsibility but when God blesses us we often forget where we came from. We forget how easily things can be taken away from us. There is a saying that says don't burn your bridges before you cross them but i say don't burn your bridges at all because you never know when you might have to cross them again. You have to make sure you have met the requirements required to get the things you want in life. The Bible says study to show thyself approved. In life things don't just fall into your lap you have to work for them but with those things we work for comes the responsibility to maintain them. Ask yourself have i met the requirements?
48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
1 Corinthians 10:13
12Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
1 Peter 5:7
6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
The Bible says that love covers the multitude of sins. People say that actions speak louder than words. Love is just a word until you act on it. The bible says faith without works is dead and love without works is dead also.
14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
