Daily Bible Study with Purpose


James 2:26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead. 

Can’t make it to the gym because of the COVID-19! You are not alone. Friends I usually would see five times a week I haven’t seen in months. Hopefully, they are safely utilizing other means of exercising during this quarantine.
When we think of exercise, we usually think of our physical bodies – right! But once in Christ, we become one in the Spirit of Christ, which means that the Spiritual side of us needs development. So you may wonder how do we exercise that which is unseen as defined in Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
As we exercise the gift God has given us, the ability to love one another, we develop our spiritual muscle. It is a conditioning that maintains our spirit’s health, for we know that the testing of our faith produces a single-minded dedication to our Lord.
Let’s Pray: Lord, please increase our faith muscles by helping us see opportunities to administer to others in need and hold nothing back because we as believers know that everything belongs to you. Please consider us righteous as you did Abraham for his willingness and offered his son Isaac on the altar. Show us how to provide all that we have to you so that we, too, can be called your friend and be considered righteous. Thank you, Lord, for showing us that we may think ourselves unworthy or less than; that you used Rahab the prostitute to show your kingdom spies a different direction. Please strengthen us for your use and your glory. Amen

🟡 Bitter + Salty =to  temporarily lose consciousness due to a lack of courage by embracing the spirit of fear which God did not give us, We faint because we do not see, hear, or understand the voice of our shepherd. As we walk in the evil days the Word of God is barely perceptible.

This year Our Given Purpose® is focused on dealing with the root of our anger, arrogance, pride, and fear; through testimonies, interviews, devotionals, and unique collaborations.


Let’s prepare to strip down, humble ourselves, and do the work:


🔻 Always behave with love in mind.

Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?


A Word From the Host

“I am honored to share my story with you as these weekly videos continue. Talking about my past transgressions and witnessing to God’s healing and deliverance is therapeutic for me. 

This is my journey through pain, unforgiveness, anger, pride, arrogance, and fear. I believe the difficult situations I grew through helped me develop this strategy I am sharing with you. I continue to learn and become stronger in my faith. The relationship God sought to cultivate with me is transcendent. 

My Past:

→When I was 25 years old, my outer appearance defined me. I struggled with my identity because the purpose of life was abandoned to a rebellious worldly ambition. I didn’t know who I was. It took ten years before I woke up to the reality that I was dead in life. No matter the number of good deeds I performed, nothing would gain me any satisfaction until I surrendered to God. I was involved in a culture of self-deprecating, self-consuming, and irrational behavior. I repressed the feelings of anger and fear; that led to rebellious acts against God. With no direction or significance, I went on a dead-end journey to seek meaning in a life created by my circumstances.

 →It is now my passion to warn others against the travails of this world, and the proverbial carrots dangled overhead. Through prayer, meditation, education, and overall a real relationship with God, I offer a ministry dedicated to helping others reclaim their inheritance.

Are You In A Situationship with Fear?, the Podcast Part 2

👋 Hello, Person of Purpose!
We are excited you’re here! Elements of Fear is a mentoring series focused on our attitude towards the unknown. If you are new to the purposeful family, we welcome you! Please subscribe to this website for free email alerts updating you on what’s happening on purpose. 



Allow Our Given Purpose® to help you gain c.larity, o.rganize your thoughts, and p.repare to walk boldly in your purpose! Let us help you C.O.P. your purpose.




🟥The Message:

The Situationship with Fear…

Define your relationship with God, the Creator. Of what are you afraid? Is it this world, your friends, or the judgment of the Lord? The enemy learns from our mistakes even if we do not. He watches our posture before God. He takes in what we are willing to do to get ahead, get noticed, and feed off. The enemy knows that we will thirst for the water of people. He feeds our ego just enough to keep us looking to man for emotional health instead of God. That’s the cycle the adversary hopes you will keep circling for the rest of your earthly days.

Meditate plan mentally; consider: to think carefully about something.
Think carefully and consider God’s Word every moment of every day. He does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work. Clarifying, organizing, and preparing to do our assignment each day takes strategic planning with God. 



🟥 Cycles by Jonathan McReynolds 


🟥 Take Action

Are You In A Situationship with Fear? Part 2 the Podcast uses Bible scripture to refocus and realign. 

🟥 Fear of Planning the Podcast, (Exercise)


Step One Clarify
Define your relationship with God the Creator. What are you afraid of? Is it this world, your friends, or the judgment of the Lord? The enemy learns from our mistakes even if we do not. He learns from our posture before God



Step Two Organize

Who or what has your emotional attention?

The enemy knows that we will thirst for the water of people. He feeds our ego just enough to keep us looking to man for emotional health instead of God.


Step Three Prepare

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.


Take charge of your mental peace and productivity! Fight fear with the Word of God because He does not give us that spirit.
