Hello, Friends! Here is today’ prayer…

Dear Lord,

Your word tells us that you give us endurance and encouragement and surely there are people praying with us who need to receive those things from you.

The Bible says that the things written in your Word are for our encouragement and to teach us by example. Your followers knew about hardship. They knew what it was like to have adversity as their constant companion. They endured beatings, floggings, being stoned and shipwrecked. They were falsely accused, rejected, despised and thrown into prison. They knew what it was like to be in physical pain… they knew what it felt like to be hungry, thirsty, persecuted, exhausted, and to even despair of life. Yet, they did more than just survive all they endured. Their times of discouragement did not overwhelm them or side track them from their mission or draw them away from you…the more adversity they faced, the closer…

Note to this Generation

Note to this generation

There is a dream waiting to be a reality… 
GOD has a purpose for your life. He has placed a desire in your heart. However, It is up to you to truly seek His will for your life. There is more to your life than instant gratification…the easy way isn’t necessarily beneficial long term. 

When will you spend time with Him so that you can know His voice so He can show you the way that will bring your dreams, desires and your life into His perfect will?

When will you fight against the the enemy of your soul? This enemy only comes to steal, kill & destroy you and eveything about you. Make wise choices today for your future self. Seek wisdom, be obedient and be accountable for each choice you make. NO one can live your life for you.Those that love you can only pray for you and share our experiences to guide you. 

When will you fight for what is right and pleasing before God? He has set before you two doors Life & Death. 
He desires for you to Live, ultimately you have a choice… Which one will you choose?

 

A heart’s letter

My heart hurt’s for all of GOD’s Children, we have some how lost the reverent fear for GOD. When we make decision without him, never really consulting Him for direction… and expecting for our way’s to be blessed. When our way isn’t going as we see fit we get mad at God. (Forgive us Father). Although we fall short we shouldn’t let or give into our lower nature, and allowing that to be an excuse for not making an effort to being a Living sacrifice unto GOD, to strive to be in a true, genuine relationship with Him. No, it’s not easy to walk this walk, He never said that it would be, What He did say was “Don’t Fear I am with you ALWAYS”, not some of the time BUT ALWAYS. (GRASP and MARINATE ON THAT ONE.) He is at the door of your heart knocking LET HIM IN… He is waiting on you make the choice of a life time…He won’t make you but He sure will woooooooooo… with an everlasting Unconditional LOVE.

Satan lies are cunning and deceitful and often times make sense when you don’t take the time to spend with the Heavenly Father. Fight ya’ll fight daily, moment by moment. Satan want’s you too.. but it may not be for the reasons you may think… Love is NOT in the equation AT ALL. It’s a Fight for your soul, Jesus already won the battle… you just have to choose to the free gift.

I know that I haven’t always been on one accord with him, That was the past and I am great believer that Jesus forgave me each one of my sins.

Oh HOW grateful to know Him now… Jesus saved Me from me, my past, not because I was perfect, but because He is perfect and He LOVES ME. 😉 I’ve accepted the fact I am powerless without Him, I NEED HIM and He deserves my worship,praise, adoration and ALL Glory.

I was guilty until I excepted gift from Jesus Christ and that is He paid a debt that I couldn’t pay.

What if the detour is the only way to the destination?

What if the detour is the only way to the destination?

Sometimes we seem to be wandering aimlessly, far removed from our real passions and purposes. The roadmap to our destination takes crazy turns and leaves us either scratching our heads or crying out at God. But as we look at Scripture, we see in the life of Joseph, as well as many other biblical characters, that this process is not the exception, it’s the norm. This is how God works. It may be excruciating at times, but there is purpose in it. He is writing a bigger story and fitting us into it in ways we cannot yet see.

Detour: Finding Purpose When Life Doesn’t Make Sense.
A Study of the Life of Joseph

For all of us who are frustrated because life seems more like a maze than a clearly sign-posted journey, here is a series that we have desperately needed. Phil Tuttle points out that, surprisingly, God often works His special and productive purposes in seasons of life where clarity is the missing ingredient. Digging deep into the life of Joseph, Phil demonstrates that God manages our confusion toward good and productive ends. Experience this series, and be encouraged!

Reaction Under pressure excerpt from The Bait of Satan

Some people in church are like the disciples were so quick to speak in Caesarea Philippines, but only later to be exposed. They may look like five story Christians the picture of strength, the stability, and beauty. They may weather a few minor and mid-size storms. But when a mighty storm blows in, they are relocated. Be sure that you build your life on God’s revealed Word, not what others say. Keep seeking the Lord and listen to your heart peep. Don’t do or say things just because everyone else does. Seek Him and stand on what he what is illuminated in your heart!

From A Fiery Furnance To Gold

For years now, since 2004…
I’ve held on to the words I heard “You must be tried in the fire before you are gold” I didn’t know at the time what it meant the more that I heard it I searched it out. I talked to a friend about it and asked why would I keep hearing this over and over again? That friend said Remember the three Hebrew boys …Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,  read Daniel 3, so I did. I knew that God was telling me that I would go through some things and He will be there to help me.

Years have gone by and I have been through my share of fiery furnaces… I can’t even begin to tell of them all, what I can say today is that as painful as the struggles and sufferings of this world are, they can’t even be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us [what He truly has for me.]  ~Roman 8:18

His word says “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you .To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever Amen.”
~1 Peter 5:10-11

So, as I cried and asked why and looked for solutions in my situation I took a moment to sit down to pray and read and here is what I found:

Buy of Me Gold in the Fire Increased FAITH & LOVE for the end of time:

Because you say, “I am rich, I have become wealthy, and I have need of nothing’— and do you not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich;
Revelations 3:17,18

“The gold they Jesus would have us buy of Him is gold tried in the fire; it is the gold of faith and love that as a no defiling substance mingled  with it.”

Note: the gold tried in the fire is FAITH and LOVE. They will both will be purified in His people just before Christ returns. The faith we have learned cognitively will be re-learned experientially  through great adversity. God is looking to refine His people to the degree that their faith (trust in Him ) and their love for others will mirror the faith and love of Christ. Through many forms of adversity, God is at work preparing the hearts of His children.

REFLECTION :
When one who has wandered far in sin seeks to return to God, he will encounter criticism and distrust there are those who doubt whether his repentance is genuine, or will whisper, “he has no stability I do not believe that he will hold out” these persons are doing not the work of God but the work of Satan, who is the accuser of the Brethren through their criticisms the wicked one hopes to discourage that soul, and to drive him still farther from hope and from God. Let the repainting sinner contemplate the rejoicing in heaven over  the return of the one that was lost. Let him rest in the love of God and in no case be disheartened by the scorn and suspicion of the Pharisees. {COL 190.2}

This along with the encouragement of friends that KNOW the struggle and Love God, has Blessed me, strengthened me, Empowered me and even brought me to pray for my friends and frenemies.

You may even me cry from my struggles and sufferings, but think not that I have no hope because I do and it is in Christ’s promises to me… My God CAN NOT FAIL!
