Philippians 2:14: Do all things without murmurings and disputings:/update

Do you; complain about everything?

Do you complain to everyone?

If you; are going to complain; just don’t do it.

When we do that; we are not benefitting anyone.

We have already been instructed; to love.

When we are walking in love; we have nothing; to complain about.

Our mouths; can get us into trouble.

Besides; watch who; do you think you are talking to?

2 Chronicles 26:16: But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

2 Chronicles 26:17: And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men:

2 Chronicles 26:18: And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God.

2 Chronicles 26:19: Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.

2 Chronicles 26:20: And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him.

2 Chronicles 26:21: And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land.

2 Chronicles 26:22: Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write.

Note: This is what anger will get you; if we are not careful.

Do you want to hear someone complain all the time?

The next time; that you get ready to complain; listen to yourself.

What do you think?

We can’t be one way; in the church and a different way outside; the church.

Keep your word!

God is faithful!

Numbers 23:19: God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?  or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Is there anything; you have promised; to the Lord?

That you failed to do?

Because; after you prayed and the Lord answered; you’re pray;

That desperation; that you felt went away.

Suddenly; you were hit with a case of amnesia?

Let me encourage you!

Ecclesiastes 5:4: When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.

We all have issues; problems.

What counts; is how we handle them.

Hebrews 6:13: For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

Not a one of has attained.

Everyone; of us can pray.

Luke 11:1: And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

Luke 11:2: And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Luke 11:3: Give us day by day our daily bread.

Luke 11:4: And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

Salvation is there; for the receiving.

We can all repent.

1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Getting angry; is scriptural.

Ephesians 4:26: Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

It is how we handle the anger; even more so:

How we allow the anger to handle us?

Ephesians 4:27: Neither give place to the devil.

We must be very careful about getting angry.

When; the enemy would confront Jesus:

Luke 4:8: And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

The enemy will use the word of God:

Luke 4:10: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

Once we allow the spirit of anger to enter us; we lose control.

We become destructive.

If; not to others; to ourselves.

When we lash out; we hurt others.

I guess; that is where; the saying comes from:

“Hurting people; hurt people!”

If we do not let it out appropriately; we hurt ourselves.

I have been there; and done that!

Every time; someone is trying to correct you/I.

Does not mean; they are angry.

The Lord; healed me in 2009.

Glory to God!

I use to get so angry; I could actually hear; my heart pounding!

Galatians 5:1: Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

The anger; is not worth it; to my health or my spirit!

Remember:

Mark 7:21: For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

Mark 7:23: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

  1. Ecclesiastes 7:9: Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.

Who are you/I relying on?

2 Chronicles 16:7: And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the LORD thy God, therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand.

Sister Fisher; comes to let you know; that it does matter who you depend on for help. Can; I be real?

In my earlier years; I always had a man in my life; along with Jesus; just in case. I’m being real.

That job that I had also kept me from fully living and trusting God. Remember; I’m being real.

All along; this has been a set up.

I went to church.

I received Salvation.

I paid my Tithes; I was living the best (I thought) I could.

God began with my character.

I was active in the church; so when I attended and did more in the church.

I began to be condemned about my (So-called secret activities). Just know; there are no secrets from God.

I stop that.

Then I had the stroke.

I continued in church.

I continued paying my Tithes.

I had the Heart attack.

I continued in Church.

I continued to pay my Tithes.

My car broke down; is still broke down.

I continue to pay my Tithes.

If need be; I can watch services on-line.

I still had friends; I would call; every now and then. These were legitimate friends.

I prayed and ask God; what am I to do?

Remember; I talked about increase.

I increased my prayer time.

It was time for me; to fall on my knees and stay there.

Oh; I have continued to pray and I have continued to read my Bible.

I had not fully made it back to my daily hour of praying.

“But God” placed me in a position; where I had to decide.

I could go “Back” to my old self.

I thought of the consequences.

That was not even a choice.

I had already prayed; I could wait on instructions from the Lord.

After all; God would not:

Hebrews 13:5: Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Hebrews 13:6: So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

I have to live; what I preach about.

If I; am going to make suggestions to you; and do all this talking about the Lord.

I must live what I am preaching about.

God instructed me; I am in the process of getting the help; I need.

My thought; “But God”

I did not need to go back to my old habits.

I did not have to depend on anyone; “But God”

The old me; would have called someone that would comfort me.

Remember; I’m being real.

I suggest; you drop the “Sugar daddy; the “Sugar Mama.”; the pride; etc.

I have realized this; I have released some people.

When I felt the need; to talk to someone; I talked to God.

When I felt the need to be held; I asked God.

I have asked God to provide me with whomever or whatever else is needed in my life.

I pray; and wait for the Lord to meet my needs as well as I wait for the Lord to supply my needs.

If he has not supplied; what I need it must not be a need.

I have just settled myself to wait on Him.

My thought: God’s Will; God’s Way; God’s Time.

Ecclesiastes 3:11: He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

This is no longer; about me. 

Crucifying my flesh was the hardest thing for me to do.

Whomever or whatever you are using instead of consulting Jesus and waiting for Him.

Asa; did not depend on the Lord.

2 Chronicles 16:10: Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing.  And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time.

Matter of fact; he got angry with whom God sent to tell him the truth.

Don’t get angry with me.

Abraham believed God!

Romans 4:3: For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
