Claudine's Bites of Inspiration

Claudine V. Hicks

This is a faith-based Podcast and as a Believer and Life Coach, my mission is to Encourage| Inspire and Impart what God has placed on me through my relationship with the Holy Spirit, and to help people walk in their true authentic self. Which comes through aligning themselves with what Heaven says about them. This is a place where you will hear stories and experiences from me and featured guests on how like Queen Esther, God can use anyone no matter their background or experience, to bring forth deliverance, healing, and hope on the earth, all for His Glory. Disclaimer: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are the centers of all that I do because it's in Him I live, function and have my identity. Act 17:28(tpt) My passion is to recreate Jesus Christ in my sphere and to be a catalyst of change on the earth. Because that is the will of the Father.

Move your heart closer and closer to God and HE will come even closer to you.”  That scripture is too pure and beautiful. I felt His love as I read it. I felt His heart calling as I read that verse, especially in TPT. He wants fellowship. He wants all of us, not part, all of us. He wants us to know Him. To know Him is to love Him. He wants union. He wants partnership.  He wants to make us his habitation. He wants to share His life with us. He even wants to dance with you. Have you ever danced with the Father? Or when was the last time you dance with your Heavenly Father? And so, fellowship and Intimacy with God is about giving Him ALL of your attention, and all of our affection rather than the amount of spiritual activity you're involved in.  That's something to think about huh? Well, let me say that again for someone in the back just in case they missed it:) Fellowship and Intimacy with the Father are about giving Him ALL of your attention, it’s about drawing close to Him, It’s about giving all your affection, rather than thinking the amount of spiritual activity you're involved in equals intimacy with the Father.  Because you know, sometimes we think that because we do this and that, it equals Intimacy. Sometimes we confuse what we do for the King as intimacy with the King. Take a listen to the rest of the Podcast and allow Holy Spirit to minister to you. Oh and I forgot that there's music playing in the background and so I'm not sure what it sounds like once I started worshiping. Ugh! Enjoy anyway:) Don't forget to Subscribe, Share and Leave a 5-star review.

Criticism, how do you react to criticism?
The question is not if you are criticized it's when you are being criticized. “The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back” So even when they hurt and criticize you, I have given you instructions on what to do. I'm not saying I have all the answers but these three steps have been proven to work. First, we’ve got to learn to leave our defense in My God's hands. Trust that where God needs to speak up in your defense and favor, He will do it in a way that NO ONE can contest or ignore.  Secondly, we’ve got to learn to cope with criticism ( we cope by trusting God to defend us) and while we are at it, guard our hearts. Yes, guard your heart, love, and pray for them. Thirdly, don’t get offended, keep moving forward in the destiny God has for you on the earth.   In scripture, many times people would come against Jesus and criticize Him. Many times it says Jesus answered them not a word. He simply didn’t respond to His critics. He didn’t try to convince them or try to change their minds. He didn’t get upset because somebody was talking about Him. No, He just ignored it. When people come against you trying to make you look bad, trying to discourage you, remember this, Jesus was probably the most criticized than anyone else. I use to be that person that would want to get my point across and defend myself, but like Jesus, (Who wants to be like Jesus?) He just stayed focused on what He was called to do. He stayed the course.  BE encouraged and Shalom!
