Jealous God

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Proverb 4:23: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Jeremiah 31:33: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people

Matthew 10:37: He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

It is very important that I guard my heart; I truly believe that I cannot love anyone more than I love the Lord! Myself, my Family; etc,

Exodus 34:14: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

When the Lord allows people in our lives; (He & I). I don’t even attempt to make decisions about people anymore; without the Lord!

Now, when I ask the Lord; May I? It is in my best interest to abide in His decision. You see I believe that God can see further than I can. He can see (Our) future. I trust Him with my life! You see; in my younger years, I did not take the time to pray about everything or everybody. Something this simple; I can do; I thought. Don’t allow the enemy to trick you into believing that God is not concerned about every area of your life.

Start early in your life praying! When you build your Relationship with the Lord; you will learn to depend upon Him. This does not excuse you or me from life.

God is to be first in our lives; when we KEEP Him in His correct place in our lives; (#1) He will lead, guide and direct us.

It is when we submitt, surrender and commit ourselves to Him and allow Him access to everything and everybody in our lives; can He then cares for everything that concerns us. So many times; we do not surrender everything to the Lord in the beginning. Now God, does not need our permission to do anything! Please understand that!

2 Timothy 1:12: For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

I just believe that there are benefits to suffering. If I am going to suffer; I am so happy the Lord is with me. You know; regardless of whom you may have in your life; they can only go so far with you! Think about it!

This way; I am not concerned about judging anyone: Matthew 7:1: Judge not, that ye be not judged.

Matthew 22:37: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matthew 22:38: This is the first and great commandment.

Matthew 22:39: And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

I believe that I should pray about everything and everybody! 

1 Thessalonians 5:17: Pray without ceasing.

Proverb 4:23: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Repentance

Isaiah 58 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

Stop committing fornication!

Because, I ask the Lord; what was His cause? Because He did leave me with the ability to speak, to comprehend most things, My ability to type with one hand (smile), to walk, etc. I have served the Lord long enough to know that there is a purpose to everything He does; whether we realize it at the moment or not!

He said to me that “His people were hurting”. God loves us too much to leave us in the same condition that we were in when we came to him! Luke 12:47: And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.


OFTEN TIMES; BECAUSE WE ARE DISOBEDIENT!
God knows everything! For me, to  tell them to stop committing fornication!

We cannot be God’s chosen and live any kind of way!

John 15:16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

In essence that is what we do when we try and solve our problems the World ‘s way, and not wait on God!
We try and dance and shout over our sins. Numbers 32:23: But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out. When I look at Fornication; the way God views it! God will put you in a place that that is all you can do! Unfortunately, I did not think; before I acted.
I have learned even more about fornication, than I knew before.
You do know that we can commit premeditated sin?
It is devastating. When we commit Fornication, it encompasses so much….Are we daring to say that God can’t supply our needs; when He has already told us: Philippians 4:19: But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Are we putting someone before God? Deuteronomy 6:15: (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth. Hebrews 6:6: If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
I did not realize what I had done. Did, I know that I was wrong? Yes. I make no excuses. I do not try and justify my sin! All that Christ went though for me! My God! My God! My God! Did I repent? How many know that if you repeat a thing, youve not really repented?
Who better to use than one of His children to display His Love? Am I saying that God Loves me? Yes, God does not like what we do at times; yet He loves us and gives us an opportunity to Repent. Heed the warning.
In the old testament, God did not allow any evil thing among the Children of Israel: Joshua 7:12: Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you.
Joshua 7:13: Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.

In the New testament: 1 Corinthians 6:9: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:18: Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
We sin against our OWN bodies!
I am Blessed because, God slapped me on the wrist, God could have destroyed me! I realize that. I also realize that I need God every moment of my Life. God had allowed me to accomplish things, I thought. We can’t do anything apart from God. Pride was an issue for me as well. When Pride comes in, so does sin. It is when we have too much Pride that causes a problem. When We think that “I Can” No You can’t, neither could I.
Proverb 30:20: Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
When we commit fornication, we get up; clean ouselves up; as though we have done nothing wrong. Just as God did not allow any accursed thing in the camp of Israel. He is going to set the Church strait! Isaiah 29:15: Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us?  and who knoweth us? Isaiah 5:20: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
When God says “Woe” be careful!
We don’t have to be a loud boisterous person to commit sin. sin is sin. When people are quiet; people automatically think you have something to hide. I came speaking the truth being honest, they still were suspicious. This is why, I don’t try to appease people, because when you have respect of persons you get into trouble. So, If I am honest with God and then with you. You can’t come back and say Aha!
Now, because they day we met, I did not blurt out my Past, I testify when the Lord tells me too! He is the one I answer to.
Remember, In order to get clean; we have to come clean. Psalm 24:4: He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
What gets me is that when I gave my First message after, the stroke. People patted me and said “God already knew”. I got angry because, just because God knew. DOESN’T MAKE IT RIGHT!
This is my past. I’d tried to change my appearance, what needed to be changed was the inside: Matthew 15:19: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
God has: Psalm 51:10: Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Because he has, I can share my Testimony!
This word is to me first, now I am sharing It!
There is still one more thing that I have to do. I will do that .

Thank You Lord

Genesis 22:2: And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

I’ve felt that God requires that I/we give away what I/we need the most! The Lord revealed it to me this Morning in Scripture: Genesis 22:2: And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

We have to realize how long Abraham had waited to receive a Child from his own seed. We know the story, if not; read Genesis. He gets the child. God says sacrifice him. This is why I/we can’t love anything or anyone more than we love God.  

Matthew 10:37: He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

That child that is SO cute; it just melts your Heart when you look at them. That Husband with the rippling muscles. That wife with the Hair you like so much. Your Mother that has been with you through thick and thin. Your Father (nothing more to be said), that Sister that you love. That Brother; whom you’ve shared secrets with. NOTHING AND NO ONE. Is to come between I\You and God. It is the same Word for me as it is for you.

God KNOWS how much we love them and how much they mean to us. God is a jealous God, we will be tested by God!

How much is the price tag on our loved ones? Think about it!

Maybe the most precious thing to you :

Money

Power

Prestige

House

Clothes

Image

Sex

We can’t love it more than we love God! What or Who is in the #1 Place in my/your life? The most precious people in my life is my Family! I am thankful for the other things that God has blessed me with.

However; God is #1; He is the Man in my life.

Answered Prayer

I truly believe the stroke was one answer to my prayers. The stroke has produced wonderful things in my life. I have to admit that my focus was off.

I now, believe that I am ready to get married, because of the work God has done on the inside. In my heart.  God can take care of those things that you feel you can’t help but do. Satan is a lie. You can do all things through Christ. I looked and I had over 30 pages of prayers that I had prayed for a husband; I had to repent and ask God to forgive me for allowing this to become my focus. There is nothing wrong with prayer. Just remember, God is a jealous God, we can’t allow anything or anyone be to be first in our lives. Only God. I have always believed that there is a blessing on the other side of my obedience.

I am learning to be patient. God told me that he will not give me someone that doesn’t love us both, (He and I). I believe that person is closer than I think. We speak those things that be not as though they were:

Romans 4:17: (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

God has worked wonders in me. I recognize it myself.

The main thing to learn is that it is about RELATIONSHIP and not religion.

My needs and desires have changed over the years. Thank God he doesn’t change. God has already told me that my new Husband will be a “Gift” for me to always remember that I have not worked for him, or earned him, to appreciate him. I did not feel this way before. I felt that I was capable of doing things myself. I believe that as women we have to humble ourselves and take some things that we don’t feel we need to take. If you are (going to be a man Be a Man) If you are going to be a woman be a woman. A Man is to be the head, let him be the head. I am that prepared woman for that prepared man.

My advice for single people is to fall in love with the Lord first. Seek him and not what is in his hands. God will give us what and whom we need now and in the future. Woman, God did not equip/ nor create you to carry the loads we are trying to carry. Be humble. God will teach you how, if you ask him.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

Note: It is as if; God put me to sleep to wake me up!
