“I would never do that”


https://skitguys.com/videos/item/grace

Stop!!!! Visit the link above before you go further.

Is there anyone one thing or list of things that you believe/d you know without a shadow of a doubt that you would never do???? Like for instance: never have a fist fight with your parents – just the thought is horrible I know.  There are so many other things I could list but my point is this, never say “I would never do that” I somewhat started learning this some years ago and am still learning.  What am I still learning? well, that it is because God provided a way out of that temptation and not only that,  He gave me the strength to take that way out –1 Corinthians 10:13.  That was the only reason why I have not done certain really horrible things, like having a fist fight with my mom.  Came close but thank God He helped me not to cross that line.

You see, I always thought there were certain things I would never do, which made me certain that I was a good person; even before Christ found me.  That belief was one of the things that made me who I was but one day,  one of the things on the list of things I would never do, happened. OH MY GOD!!!! What is this?????  It felt horrible at first but the second time not so much, then  another thing on my never would do list happened and each time after the fact I would be like, girl you are not as good as you thought you were.  This was eating away at some of my foundation of who I thought I was, which was a good person.  I was like the Pharisee in  (Luke 18:11 – The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: ‘I thank you, God, that I am not a sinner like everyone else. For I don’t cheat, I don’t sin, and I don’t commit adultery. I’m certainly not like that tax collector!).  I did not know that I was a silent hypocrite as this pharisee.

Image result for image of two open doors I have chosen the wrong door many times and I believe that these things happened because God wanted me to know that no human is good.  Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. It is only because of His grace and mercies why we live.  We in ourselves or by our own accord can never be “good”.  Also, who I am is according to God’s word.  

LIST OF WHO GOD SAYS WE ARE:

  1. I am a child of God – John 1:12

  2. I am a branch of the true vine, and a conduit of Christ’s life – John 15: 1, 5

  3. I am a friend of Jesus – John 15:15

  4. My old self was crucified with Christ, and I am no longer a slave to sin – Romans 6:6

  5. I will not be condemned by God – (Conditions apply) – Romans 8: 1 & 2

  6. As a child of God, I am a fellow heir with Christ – Romans 8:17

  7. I have been accepted by Christ – Romans 15: 7

  8. My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who dwells in me – 1 Corinthians 6:19

  9. I am a new creature in Christ – 2 Corinthians 5:17

  10.  God loves me and has chosen me – 1 Thessalonians 1:4

There are so much more to this list but I have work shortly.  Have a peaceful nights rest and productive and God’s wisdom filled day at work/mission/school/home.

Shalom.

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 know 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 lead.
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.

The conversation – cont.


conversation with God

Jamie: Lord, what are you talking about; I have been wearing your armor. It’s just that, all the hardships as you call them are coming at me all at once. I have no time to recover from the first, before two-ten start coming at me. No wonder my shield of faith is just about totally destroyed. Too much pressure from those darts Lord. Can’t you do something about it?

The Lord: child, do you think I am just sitting on my throne, doing nothing? That I am just here basking in my glory as God and not working out your life and every single person’s life on the earth. To add to that, most of you are so difficult to please. You ask for something I give it to you then it doesn’t play out how you want it; you cry, complain and even keep malice with me because you blame me for your bad choices. Not realizing that the longer you stay away from me is the more difficult your lives become. Why you might ask: well, when you no longer abide under the shadow of Me the Almighty; you are then left vulnerable, out in the open for the enemy to wound you and for some to be killed.

Jamie: Lord, you mean, you would sit back and allow your children to be killed because we chose to move from underneath your shadow? That seems cold God.

The Lord: cold (with hurt and disappointment in His voice) my precious child, have you forgotten this act of love for you and the world? the-crucifixion-teaser-panel-2
I have given you and all my children everything you all need to live this life on earth victoriously. I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents, scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. I have even stated that nothing shall in anyway harm you and My word is final BUT if you decide not to use this authority and decide not to live in this authority then you will be destroyed. I didn’t create robots; I created human beings and I gave them a will, along with the opportunity to make their own choices. I AM The I AM that I AM and I don’t need to defend myself to you but because of my love, grace and mercies, I will continue this conversation.

The Lord: Jamie I feel every hurt you go through; I know that you can’t understand that now because it doesn’t seem that way but when I came on this earth as man I went through all the emotional test that you go through. I was like you, a human being.

Jamie: Lord……….

The conversation


conversation with God
Jamie: Dear Lord I am caught between a rock and a hard place.

The Lord: What do you mean child?

Jamie: Don’t you already know? After all, you are God the all-knowing God.

The Lord: Don’t get cheeky child. You better recognize to whom you speak.

Jamie shudder with reverent fear.

Jamie: I am so sorry Lord, please forgive me.

The Lord: not to worry child. I know your heart, that you are sincerely sorry. There is therefore no condemnation for those who are mine.

Jamie: much oblige Lord. Anyway Lord, this is my situation. I am so afraid of what’s coming.

The Lord: What’s coming?

Jamie: will you let me finish.

The Lord: JAMIE!!!!

Jamie: oh yea, sorry God. Well this is it; I am not quite sure how to trust you in this particular situation. I mean, every scenario I come up with in my head ends badly for me. They all end with me having to bear a combo kind of excruciating hurt.

The Lord: I understand what you are going through but

Jamie cuts in before the Lord could finish what He was saying

Jamie: Lord please just let me finish. So as I was saying, I do not think I am strong enough to go through this. I know that you are in control but you have allowed me to go through a lot of pain already and I fear that this is just another. You have tried to comfort me by sending people to share their experiences, along with your word but then others come to stuff your word down my throat and worst there are those who tell me to get busy and keep myself occupied aka “the band-aid effect”. These do not work. some makes me feel better for a short while but no significant aid.

The Lord: Remember Jamie, living for me is not about feelings; it is about having faith and trusting in me. If you can’t….

Jamie cuts in again.

Jamie: Lord I know all of that. I know some of your word. For instance, In Acts when Paul formally known as Saul was crying out to you to take some sort of weakness or temptation from him; he said that in his weakness You are made strong. so Lord I am not totally ignorant about Your word. The thing is that Your word makes me feel better when I meditate on it and rehearse it but then the fiery dartsand-then-the-fire-took.jpg.crop_display becomes more frequent and hotter and I lose focus because it burns.

The Lord: My dear child. The apple of my eye. I have given you My armor; why don’t you wear all of it? I know it is not fashionable but it will make your live MUCH easier and by the way I never said you wouldn’t have to go through some hardships.

CAN YOU IDENTIFY WITH THE CHARACTER JAMIE AND HOW SHE IS FELLING OR ARE YOU CURIOUS AS TO WHAT JAMIE WILL HAVE TO SAY NEXT?
