All of these people around us are walking around blind to the promises we were given. People walking around with so much anger and hatred. Giving all the evil in the world access to their lives. I have told you all before there is an enemy in this world who is here ONLY to steal, kill and destroy everything in our lives.
Until we learn to stand up and fight, until we learn about who GOD really is, we do not stand a chance. God is LOVE. Knowing who God is and what his promises are, is about having a relationship with Him. It is not about religion. Religion says we must do this and that, say this and that, never let any one know we have problems or that we struggle. Religion says we can only buy, or “earn” salvation. That the god they know will only help them if they are good. Guess what, the God I know, the one whom created the heavens and the earth, made a way for us to know who He is. He bought us back at a price. By GRACE WE HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH, plus NOTHING else.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV
For those of you who do not know, God gave His ONLY begotten son and who so ever believes in Him WILL have everlasting life. Jesus came for so many reasons, to show us a new way of living, to show us who God truly is, to show us where to look, and where to stay away from. His main reason to come was to die for ALL of us, and create a way for us to be saved. When you are only into this God thing because you are scared for your life if you do not “follow the rules” THEN YOU ARE IN THIS FOR THE WRONG REASONS. Those “rules” are not what is going to save your life, and they are not going to help you every day. His Holy Spirit is what will help you EVERYDAY!
Our God is a God of love. He is a God of peace, of wisdom, of understanding. He is the creator of heaven and earth. He loves each and every one of us. Believing who He REALLY is starts somewhere. Life doesn’t change for some people, and it doesn’t always change overnight. People still “think” they know Him, yet still walk around every day in fear, in pain, or with selfish ambitions. Sometimes changes are small, like learning to not let anger in every time someone cuts you off in traffic, or learning we do not have to constantly be worried about putting food on the table. Even just learning we can pray everyday for strength, wisdom, and help. Changes start small, but MOST results are huge. Changes bigger then we could ever even begin to understand.
I understand it is hard to focus on the good when bad things do happen. Bad things happen, sometimes through no fault of our own, sometimes they are just consequences. I can not tell you how many times I have been so sad about things around me, about things that are happening, about the problems or events that are happening to my loved ones. It hurt Jesus to and makes Him sad too. I image it makes Him more sad for these things because He dies for us and gave us a choice. It is our choice what we dwell on. What we constantly think about. OUR CHOICE to be miserable, or to be prayerful. We can not constantly dwell on these bad things. We can not afford it.
When we learn who the Holy Spirit is, what He does and what He can do, then we start to be able to “digest” certain things. I say “digest” because we will not always or sometimes ever understand, and we will not always be able to do something about certain things.
10 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. 1 Peter 5:10 NKJV
We suffer sometimes. But we suffer with grace? Knowing He suffered before us to make a way to save our lives AND to send us a helper. I do not know everything. But I am learning a lot. Reading the Bible is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Through it, God has showed me practical ways to help me everyday. Days are not always easy. Things will always be hard while we are on this earth. We live in a fallen world. But we do not have to live in anger, fear, constant pain, worry, those things are of the enemy. Jesus came to give us a way to handle each situation. If we research the Word, ask Him, and be patient we can start to see unbelievable changes.
Comfort, love, grace, righteousness, hope, peace, wisdom, understanding, can ALL start JUST ONE PRAYER AWAY.
REMEMBER TO PRAY CONSTANTLY ABOUT EVERYTHING, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF PRAYER AND NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE POWER OF GOD!!!
I hope you all mostly understand what I have to share. I wanted to say so many things to all of you. I want you all to see and KNOW truth. I am tired of my family and friends being attacked when Jesus gave us a way to FIGHT the enemy! I love you, but God loves you so much more then I could ever understand. Be blessed Always!
1And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. 2 Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Matthew 5:1-12 NKJV
Believers Are Salt and Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV
Christ Fulfills the Law
17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:17-20 NKJV
