Hello! hello world, how have you been!!! It has been a while since we spoke. I apologize for neglecting you all.
Hopefully this is the topic God wants me to write on. I was heading in a different direction with what I wanted to say but I believe those things were only out of my emotions and not what I should. Anyway, I missed you guys and I am happy to be back.
Here goes, I have been examining my walk with Abba Father and my thoughts ran on, how does one truly knows that they are saved?. I believe that Yes, when we confess our sins, ask the Lord to forgive us and ask Him to come into our hearts is the start of our salvation journey but, Then comes living the salvation and to do that, we have to be led by God the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:14 states that “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God..
To add, if we are led by God the Holy Spirit then His fruits should be portrayed through and in us. People should see God’s glory on us and hear His voice when we speak… I know some of you may be saying easier said than done and I would agree a 100% but I will say this to you and myself that it is only hard when we stop listening to God the Holy Spirit who is leading us. When we stop looking at God and start gazing on the world’s ways then it becomes hard and even unbearable.
I recently got a really great job; I work hard and smart thanks to God. There is just one small problem, my job is situated in the core of the spiritual Babylon. I am surrounded by enemies on all sides, no exaggeration. Everyday, there is a particular demon that provokes and taunts me; I try not to see the person the devil is using as the true enemy but it is so hard. There is no one there that I trust enough to be comfortable. I guess that’s good because it would not be wise to become comfortable when the war is raging on.
I have gotten some big blows because I sometimes try to fight in my strength and not rely on God’s Spirit leading me. Now who knows that when one is being attacked the norm for anyone is to defend ones’ self, true? Yes, but the correct way to defend ourselves as children of God are:
To do good irrespective of the bad being done to us.
To speak the word of God even when curses are being spoken against us.
To place it in God’s hand because Romans 12:19 says, Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
To pray for salvation, mercy and good things for those who persecute us.
To spend more time meditating on scriptures and spend too much time in prayer and praise to God.
Speak positively about our persecutors.
Be faithful in doing these things everyday.
Always follow God the Holy Spirit’s led.
Accept God’s comfort and healing when we are hurt.
Allow God to help us forgive quickly whenever anger, hatred, resentment and revenge tries to take control of our desires and will…..
These suggestions are examples of some of the fruits of the spirit, don’t you think? If we practice to live this way, God’s fruit will be evident in and through our lives and we will be joyful, prosperous and at peace.
The battle is on; never forget this.
Love you all. Pray for me as I pray for you.
