Entitlement Spirit 

The word entitlement means you act as you are entitled to what you have; who your are; your position gives you rights.
This is a continuous practice with people in position; has money; has control; or has nothing but believes you owe them something.  
The dictionary states that entitlement means: 1) the state or condition of being 
b) right to benefits specified especially by law or contract 2) government program providing benefits to members of a specified group b) funds supporting or distributed by such a program 3) belief that one is deserving of or entitled to certain privileges.  

King Saul felt because of he was king that even God can accept his forgiveness and he would still be king. King Saul could do what he wants and still be king. He could disobeyed God and still would be King.  
Entitlement makes you do things, say things that you feel you are due to be treated that way. When you have this entitlement spirit you firmly believe that the world owes you something.  
Let me say this no one owes you anything. No one has to do anything for you not even God. You are not entitled to anything. If you want to eat you have to work.  
Life will not give you a break. Even life has an entitlement attitude about its. If you do the way your life demands you are entitled to what you get.  

I have lived my life dedicated to the Lord and firmly believe that God will give me a chance to be successful and give me passion for life. But as I am writing this I am not entitled to anything and have to accept that where I am at is because of my life choices.  
Life choices are easy to make because they are based on where you are at and not where you are going. Or where you maybe. Life choices are made on your entitlement to what you want. Stop and rethink your life choices. Stop thinking you are entitled to this thing called success. If you go God’s way follow his commandments and obey his rules you will be entitled to life and having it more abundant.  
But If you mess up you can ask forgiveness for what you have done to God or if you have greaves him it is hard to regain your position. Ask people like King Saul, Vashti, the children who complained in the wilderness. Once you wrong God there is no way of getting another chance of having passion for life or gaining a life of no regret or remorse.  
Having a life of regret and remorse is because you had an entitlement spirit.  
John Burton says that Entitlement is the condition of having a right to have, do or get something the feeling or belief that you deserve to be given something (such as special privileges.
“Let nothing be done out of strife or conceit, but in humility let each esteem the other better than himself. Let each of you look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Let this mind be in you all, which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped. But He emptied Himself, taking upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in the form of a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death, even death on a cross” (Phil. 2:3-8).
John Burton wrote this”Entitlement in spiritual contexts can feel a lot like faith. It’s not. It’s presumption.
Faith without works is dead. Maybe another way to say that could be, faith without works is presumption, or faith without works reveals a spirit of entitlement.

“What does it profit, my brother, if a man says he has faith but has no works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and lacking daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,’ and yet you give them nothing that the body needs, what does it profit? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. But a man may say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God; you do well. The demons also believe and tremble. But do you want to be shown, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?” (James 2:14-20).
True faith results in action. Entitlement results in inaction.
True faith results in joyful expectation. Entitlement results in grumbling and disappointment.
True faith results in blessing those who curse us. Entitlement results in resisting and rejecting those who don’t meet our expectations. We need a people to rise up who are dead to self, full of life, driven by faith, relentless in their pursuits and ready to serve others with passion, not expecting to be honored, served or counted.”
Prayer against Entitlement:
Father, forgive me of having an entitlement spirit, remove it and replace it with your Holy Spirit which is your presence. In Jesus name Amen.

January 17, 2017 Equal Faith 

January 17, 2017 ~ 1+1+7+2+1+7 = 19 means “Faith”.

Let your faith become your victory by stepping out of your comfort zone by operating in it. 

The number 17 means “victory”. Thus said the Lord “2017 year of seeing the manifestation of the Lord’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven.  

Embrace because your faith will always take you will your fears will not. You will know that only God did it for you. You will have wisdom, knowledge, understanding and discernment to deal with every situation you seek the Lord first.”

As you go through this day remember that you have conquered and have overcome all hurdles and obstacles that you will face today – January 17, 2017.  

This day is very significant because it is the first 17th day of the year in 2017. There are 11 more 17th day. This day adds up to the number 19 which means “Faith”. What pleases God? Yes your Faith. Today, step out and do something by Faith because you have the victory.  

In Proverbs 17:17 states “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Some has to mend a relationship with someone you have had an odd with. We all have a friend that loves at all times but you have a sibling that the reason why you are born is because you are born for adversity.  

If that relationship with your brother, friend, sister, parent, an aunt or an uncle, coworker, wife, husband, it is not right now is the time to correct it.  

Daniel 1:17 says “As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.” This is the scripture of the month.  

Therefore, may God give you “knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and as Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams allow God to do the same for you.

Sick, Disappointed or Discouraged

 To everyone who is sick, is disappointed and discouraged, cannot seem to pray for the situation, circumstances or problems, has a report that does not line up with the Word of God – I speak that God’s will be done in the situation and remind you that “he sent the word and healed them”. 

So today I send Isaiah 53:1-12 states “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 

He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. 

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 

Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”
