God Will Do Just What He Said
Philippians 4:19: But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Sometimes, we can have too much information as well as too many choices. Back in the day, we had vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream. My Mother had Black walnut. As a child, that did not sound good or taste good. Sometimes our knowledge is limited. Now we have so much information available to us; which is not always good. The more you know, the more you are responsible for.
satan gets into everything . It is amazing what technology can afford us to do in reaching the masses, at the same time; the Internet has allowed access to things that are not Godly. This is one of the reasons we should guard our ear gate, eye gate, and watch what we repeat. This is something that we should always be doing. It did not just start. It is growingly important that we make right choices.
If we were to make a list of what we need and make a list of what we want; they would be different. It states in Psalm 37:4: Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. The question is; are you willing to receive what God sends? Who knows maybe what you want is wrapped in what you need?
Matthew 10:7: And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Matthew 10:8: Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Matthew 10:9: Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
Matthew 10:10: Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
Matthew 10:11: And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
Matthew 10:12: And when ye come into an house, salute it.
Matthew 10:13: And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
Matthew 10:14: And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
I just believe that God prepares the way for His People. When we look at Jesus’s life, and all that He went through. We should take notice. Everything was not perfect. We often get saved and believe that I will be on easy street from here on out!
I am here to let you know; the battle has just began. If we are going to follow Christ, we should count up the cost? There is no turning back. Please, don’t half-way do anything. Once you have made up your mind; move forward.
Regardless; of what God has planned for me. I have chosen to follow Him. God has a great retirement plan. Think about it.
I have a great imagination! Can you imagine being with the Lord? My God! My God! My God!
If being in His presence now overwhelms me and can bring me to my knees, and tears!
My trials and tribulations do not compare: 2 Corinthians 4:17: For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
I have Jesus in my view. What’s in your view? I know that God does see me; hears me and He knows.
We can’t allow ourselves to be caught up in the cares of this life: Luke 21:34: And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
At times; we have to preach to ourselves. This is why it is important who we listen to and what we listen to!
Unspotted From The World
I was talking with one of my Sons, and I said to him, when we follow Jesus; it can be a lonely road at times. Do we really need all the people that are around us? When I look at my own life, I really don’t need all the people that are around me. Did God plan this? I just believe that God knows and sees the end before the beginning. Isaiah 46:10: Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: I have realized that nothing in my life has been an accident.
Jesus had 12 disciples and one of them: John 6:70: Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? It is not that Jesus did not know beforehand. The Bible is being fulfilled. Remember….when Moses was on the backside of the desert? God dealt with Him at that point.
I feel as though, I’ve been on the backside of the desert. God and I have become very, very close; I have a personal, intimate relationship with Christ. There are something’s in my life that God has simply said NO to. I know that there are people that think I am crazy. That’s okay. As long as God is pleased with me! God’s will shall be done In my life; I have submitted, surrendered and committed my life to Him. It requires my being: unspotted from the World: James 1:27: Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world….It is true: 1 John 2:16: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
I Renew My Vow
Acts 18:18: And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.
We use to sing a song “I made a vow to the Lord and I won’t go back” as I am being faced with the different trials and test in my life: Proverb 18:24: A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. 2 Corinthians 2:11: Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
I am older and wiser now; thanks be to God. God knows me and satan knows what I like. He cannot tempt me with something I dont want. James 1:14: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
So, if I realize this. I don’t have to fall! I still choose Jesus. God has and will continue to keep me as long as I choose Him; I declare unto you that God will keep you if you want to be kept! I am determined to make it with the Lord. Time out for playing!
I have made a committment to the Lord. It is my choice to keep my end of the commitment, remember this is a relationship. No one can do this for me. This is between God and I. Lord; I humble myself to you in the name of Jesus!
Let God Do It!
Philippians 4:6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
The situations and things that are going on in my life and yours; that we have tried within ourselves to fix, give it to God and leave it; with Him. Even; if it is a person. Every solution to our problems; began with God. God is a part of all our equations. May I suggest that we get out of God’s way! Sometimes the hardest thing for us to do is nothing!
I Have A Yet Praise!
Psalm 42:11: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
Psalms:43:5: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
Psalm 71:14: But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
What do you do, when your circumstances are out of your control? I will yet praise the Lord!
What do you do when you have made all the right choices; yet I still do without? I yet praise the Lord!
What do you do when you can’t express your feelings the way you use to? I yet praise the Lord!
What do I do when I know another way to get things done? I yet praise the Lord! And thank God that I am a new creature and I stay in His will!
When the people that you trusted are talking about me! I yet praise the Lord! Because I know that I haven’t said anything in secret that I will be embarrassed for it to be heard in the open. Mark 4:22: For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. I yet praise the Lord!
What do I do when Family does not understand? I pray for all of us and I yet praise the Lord!
When times; get extremely difficult. I yet praise The Lord! Even the More; my deliverance is near!
What do I do when I know that I am a Child of God! Isaiah 59:19: So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Damascus Road Experience
Acts 9:3: And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
Each and every one of us needs to have our very own personal Damascus road experience! Until you have had your very own Damascus road experience with the Lord. We live off our parents or Grandparents experience. We will not personally understand the depths of God’s love for us. Until you really focus on His love for you; the price that He paid on Calvary. It will be just something you have heard about. When He becomes My God! Things changed. I changed; my view of things changed, my perspective, my actions, my thoughts all changed for my good! Have you had a personal experience with Christ? I challenge you to try Him! You will never be the same again!
Dance for the Lord; while you have a chance
It is such a joy to see someone go forth in the Holy Dance. The first time that I had went to a church service; after I had had the Stoke. I just cried, there was a young lady that just danced across the floor. I was no longer able to dance. It put a smile on my face to be able to be an eye-witness to see someone else rejoice in the Lord. The feelings are coming back in my legs. I believe that the Lord is the great choreographer. It will happen in the Lord’s will, the Lord’s time and His way. It will happen. We should not move unless the Spirit moves us.
I have to laugh at myself; I was sitting asking the Lord to allow me to sing, not that I was such a great singer to begin with I thought that it was great to be able to sing for the Lord. The Lord said to me, “Open your mouth”. I have tried to sing, I sound horrible. God did not say that I had to sound a certain way before He will accepts my praise.
