Thank you Lord; for your patience with me.
The Lord; has been very gracious and patient with me.
So; all that is within me; I will be patient with Him.
Psalm 25:21: Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
Psalm 27:14: Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Psalm 33:20: Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
Psalm 37:7: Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Psalm 37:34: Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
Psalm 39:7: And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
Psalm 40:1: I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
This; is just a few scriptures about waiting on the Lord!
When we wait on the Lord; I suggest you do it patiently.
I will also tell you that fasting; somehow strengthens our Spirit.
When; I starve my flesh; my Spirit is strengthened.
Remember; whichever man you feed the most; will be the strongest.
It will be either flesh or Spirit!
After all; the blessings in Solomon’s life;
1 Kings 11:4: For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.
I believe; the Bible instructs us what to do as well as what not to do.
It is for our example.
I refuse; to forget; what the Lord has done for me!
I am not finished living yet.
So; I should not say; what I am not going to do.
Let me say; Lord; if it be your will and as long as you help me. I will remember; what you have done to me; and through me; and in me.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth; I pray and ask. Amen! Amen! Amen!
That’s better; always listen to and be willing to be led by the Holy Spirit!
This is why; I refuse to let anger; disobedience; wrath; hurt, etc, remain on the inside of me.
I immediately; began to pray.
I don’t know about you.
I can feel; when an ill-feeling is rising up in me.
If it is not the fruits; that the Lord speaks about:
Galatians 5:22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Galatians 5:23: Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Galatians 5:24: And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Galatians 5:25: If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Galatians 5:26: Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Galatians 6:5: For every man shall bear his own burden.
Galatians 6:15: For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
I declare; I am a new creature; in Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
We must stop allowing the enemy to use us.
Galatians 5:19: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Galatians 5:20: Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Galatians 5:21: Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
If we are walking in any of this; it is not the fruit of Christ Spirit.
Have you ever thought about; the fact that satan was a serpent in the Garden of Eden.
In Revelation; he is a dragon.
Could it be because of all the strength; that we give him; when we are walking in the flesh?
The longer; we remain in the flesh.
We are strengthening the enemy.
That is probably part of the reason for his growth.
You know; I felt sorry for Judas for years.
I come to realize; he had a choice.
Peter denied Jesus.
Matthew 26:34: Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
Matthew 26:75: And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
I just believe; he felt sorrow for what he had done.
2 Corinthians 7:10: For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
Judas on the other hand:
Matthew 27:3: Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
Matthew 27:4: Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
Matthew 27:5: And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
I am; by no means judging.
Hebrews 12:17: For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
2 Corinthians 5:10: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Jesus; has all rights to judge.
Thank you Lord for speaking to me and through me! In Jesus name! Amen! Amen! Amen!
Note: I know that; someone would betray Jesus. It had already been prophesied. I yet believe Judas; had a choice. Remember; Jesus praying?
Luke 22:40: And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
Luke 22:41: And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
Luke 22:42: Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
It did not have to be Judas; that’s the story.
The Word declares:
2 Thessalonians 2:3: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
You/I do not have to be a part of the “falling away.”
There is; only one Jesus; we can learn from; Him!
Our actions can affect; the outcome!
