You Really Have Little Faith

They say that if the enemy wants to defeat you, all he has to do is bring up the past.If there is success there, he has already defeated you. What literally has to be done is to let the past go. Understand that it is real. That these things happened and they are hurtful. But forgiveness, like Jesus calling from the cross, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do"Forgive yourself if you had a hand in the hurt. Ask The Lord to intervene. Because healing can only happen with a power much stronger then us. No one deserves to be tormented by the past. No one deserves bad things to happen. When pain rears its ugly head do you sink to the shaddows? Or do you run toward it, recognize the truth, accept it and move on?

God Is A God Of Second Chance

One of the most prominent stories in the Bible, when it comes to second chance, is the story of Paul. Paul came along way after Jesus. He was devoted to Gods word. However, he did not start off this way. The Bible picks up his career as a Christian hater/persecutor. He literally taunted and threw them in jail, the  people who believed in Christ and or God. His name during these atrocious times was Saul. God changed this man. He took his demons away and made him one of the most prolific, dedicated, faithful martyrs of the Bible. His name once he relinquished his old self to God was changed to Paul. The rest is history.
Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

The Attacks

Many a believer has come under attack by the enemy. The enemy is crafty. The enemy is a tempter. The enemy does not have your best interest at heart. The enemy will leave you standing in the mire. It is soley up to us to recognize the chaos in its developemental stages. We have to call on God who has the mightest and most powerful army to go to war with this entity. The closer we get to God the more the enemy wants to steer us away. We have to have the strongest faith in God. We have to relinquish all to God and let him fight our battles. The moment we take matters into our own hands, the worse it gets. Prayer is the one thing God hears. He knows our hearts, but to shout out to him. To praise him for all that he's done and all that he's going to do is the ultimate protection.

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:4-7 ESV

Lead Me Oh Lord

Faith is a substance not seen. But once you have experienced it and know that God stands behind you through thick and thin. You are well on your way(to knowing what faith is). Our journeys are all very different. All are our very own. This doesn't mean that someone has not experienced the same or similar. It means that there is help and advise along the way. It means that we cannot rely on men alone. We have a physical side of us that gets addressed, because we are social animals. However most have a spiritual side as well. That is where God comes in.

                                        Acts 2:17
     And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    and your young men shall see visions,
    and your old men shall dream dreams.

Dear God

Our prayers to God come in many forms. Many lengths. They come often. Some come rarely. A prayer can be simplictic or complicated. But a prayer is just that a prayer. No need to get fancy with it. Just talk to God. He sees your heart no matter what you say or how you say it. King David expressed his prayers through poetry and song. 

PSALM 62 
Trust in God Alone

My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation.

God alone is my rock and salvation, my secure height; I shall never fall.

How long will you set upon people, all of you beating them down, As though they were a sagging fence or a battered wall?

Even from my place on high they plot to dislodge me.

They delight in lies; they bless with their mouths, but inwardly they curse.

My soul, be at rest in God alone, from whom comes my hope.

God alone is my rock and my salvation, my secure height; I shall not fall.

My safety and glory are with God, my strong rock and refuge.

Trust God at all times, my people!

Pour out your hearts to God our refuge!

Mortals are a mere breath, the powerful but an illusion; On a balance they rise; together they are lighter than air.

Do not trust in extortion; in plunder put no empty hope.

Though wealth increase, do not set your heart upon it.

One thing God has said; two things I have heard: Power belongs to God; so too, Lord, does kindness, And you render to each of us according to our deeds.

In God's Time

It took God seven days to create the heavens and earth according to the Bible. He rested on the sabbeth or seventh day. We have to remember one thing about God. He hears us always. He sees our hearts. But he provides our blessings on his time. On top of that we have to remember to speak with God not just in time for a need. Praise God always. Remind yourself that he is with you, speak to him. Pray to him. He hears you. 

Psalm 150:6 

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

Encourage

Encouragement is a medicine like no other. It comes along just when you need it the most. Encouragement brings a strength to your being. Sometimes when you are at your lowest, just to hear that someone understands. That someone has been in your place before and has made it through. Yes, encouragement, pass it on.

Isaiah 41:10,13

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed. For I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I the Lord your God, will hold your right hand. Saying fear not I will help you.

The Enemy Is Amongst Us

1Corinthians13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

This world in which we live is so unkind and cruel. Unless we have faith and believe deeply that God has got our back. We could sink in the mire. We could die. The devil is so busy. You, can be taken aback by the demonic spirits that surround you. You have to pray, harder each and everyday to be covered in the blood of Jesus. Know your enemy. It maybe that you have no business in its presence. That being in a place is simply for a season. Spirit begets spirit both good and bad. When the devil is present there is mass confusion. When in the presence of God, he or she feels glorious things. We must hold steadfast and do not succumb to the smoke screens. This may be easier said then done. Know that God hears. God protects. God directs.

Life Is Not A Bowl Of Cherries

It would be safe to say that if you are not or have never struggled, been let down, been near to giving up, you are living a lie. Because everyone experiences one or more of these things in their lifetime. No matter what background you come from. No matter how rich or poor you are. Somewhere down the road you experience life. If you have God in your life you pretty much know where to turn. It is when you are teetering, blaming, feeling guilty, lost faith. It is almost as if you are lost. 



Ephesians 2:1-10

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Salvation- To Save

The word salvation stems from several places; salvacion(Fr) Salv(Latin). The word is used primarily to describe something precious in theology. It is what Jesus came to us for. To save us from our own destruction.

1John 2:2 
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

We Pray For Restoration

Ezekiel was a prophet in the old testemant of the Bible. His visions were vivid and his relationship with God was a one on one like no other. He spoke many a warning to the people as to their sins and out right disregard for people. For life. He begs that they all be forgiven and ask God to show these lost children the way.

Lamenations 5: 10-21
 Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.
 They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.
 Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honored.
 They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.
 The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their music.
 The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.
 The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
 For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.
 Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.
 You Lord, remain with us forever. Your throne is from generation to generation.
 Why do you forget us forever, and forsake us so long of a time?
 Turn thou us unto thee, O Lord, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.

Sometimes We Have To Stand Naked(with nothing) Before God

It takes deep thought and conviction to believe in God. To believe that he sees deeper inside your soul then you ever could. That what is ever in your heart, comes out one way or another. If we chose God to be the head of our lives, we surrender self. We have faith in his word. 
Hebrews 13:5-6 I will never leave you nor forsake you. So we can confidently say, the Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?

Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

God Is Steadfast

If there is anything that has not changed through the years, it is Gods love for us. He has been never faltered. He has been there and still is even when mankind acts out. Is there anything in your lives that can compare to Gods proven love? God will and has had a love for mankind way before written text surfaced. It is up to us to know God's love. Faith is the base for this knowledge.

Romans 8:35-39

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Praying For The Children

These times are about the roughest our generation has ever seen. No longer does the house, 2.4 children, a dog, two cars and a job that you can retire from seem achievable. It is not at all this way. The saving grace in this life debacle is our children. We can teach them what is wrong, what went wrong, and what they can do to change it. It takes time, and patience. It takes not giving up on them. It takes breaking down walls and barriers from them not receiving love the way God intended love to be given. Unconditionally. The enemy is very busy, but God can be busier. Pray always for the young ones.
Psalm 46:10
Be still and know that I am God. Come to Me, and I will give you wisdom, strength and grace for everything you face.

God's Love Is Steadfast

During the days that Jesus walked the earth, he though humble, had to speak against the Pharisees, and Sadducees. He took a lot of flak for doing so. However he let them know how very hypocritical they were. An example of this comes in

 Matthew 15:1-9


Then came to Jesus Scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

But Jesus answered and said unto them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

For God commanded, saying, honor your father and mother. He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

But you say, whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, it is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.


But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Embrace Our Children They Are Our Future

Proverbs 1:8-9 Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching.  They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.

Our children are crying out for guidance. Leaving them to fend for themselves has not worked and will continue not to work. The devil is extremely busy. It is time for God's children to be as they should be. Sweet and innocent.

God Be Merciful To Me And Bless Me

How many times have you asked yourself, "self how do I know that I am blessed?" Answer: When you know longer have to ask. Walking by faith and not by sight is the ultimate blessing. When that(faith) is accompanied by wisdom and understanding your combination is near completion. The icing on the proverbial cake is love unconditional. Whew! A recipe for all to see.

Job 33:28 He will redeem his soul from going down to the pit,
and his life shall see the light.

The Lord Looks At The Heart

It is as simple as that. God does not look at the car you are driving. Nor does he care how big and expensively furnished your home is. God is looking at your heart. Are you a cheerful giver? Do you love unconditionally? Do you treat your neighbor as you would yourself?

Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Take A Look Within

Believe That God Moves For Us And Amongst Us

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." 

[Mark 11:24]

The Truth Be Told

Have you ever encountered someone who claims to be spiritual, and may semi quote a Bible passage? Yet when you call on them to bless the food or say a prayer they stumble all over the place? Hypocrites are a breed of their own. Jesus called them out all of the time.

Matthew 6:1-34
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.

Mercy Shall Be Built Up Forever

It is natural for God to forgive. It is Gods way to love unconditionally. It is up to man to understand Gods mercy as well. King David devotes a whole book of song and lyric to praising God. Asking God for forgiveness for his sins. Each day we have a chance to start anew. We have choices. We can either stay in faith and believe in our higher power, or not. The latter is full of rocky road. Un-assuredness. Greed. And defeat.

Psalm 89:1-10

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.

 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.

 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,

 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.

 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.

 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord?

 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

 Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

Love and Guidence

In this day and age of fast paced everything. Many think a manuscript can guide and direct us in love and how we should handle it. Let us face it, love is not manufactured. There are no guidelines for an emotion filled place. Guidance, something wisdom generates. As we walk through life we must remember the reference book of life. The Bible gives us so many affirmations. It tells us stories of how it was back then. Which can be compared to life experiences today. Share wisdom, follow it up with understanding. Love freely, unconditionally. We are a civilization that has out grown simplicity. It is something that will be lost if those of us do not keep a hold on it. God wants us to love and praise him. Simple as that. In turn he will guide us through the turmoil that we must face in life.

In The Name of Jesus Shake The Devil Off

When the enemy cannot get to you spiritually he attacks physically. We have to be vigil in the physical as we are in the mental and spiritual fight. God is all power. Warfare with the enemy is no joke. And should be taken seriously. Prayer works always.


Psalm 91:10
No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.

For The Ways Of A Man Are Before The Lord

Justice. Injustice. Man thinks that these two very important things are in his control. Little does he (man) know that all things are answered for upon by a higher source then he.
There are many many who care less. Who do not believe in God. We who believe know that the soul less suffer and they in turn pass their suffering on. We must stay faithful and continue to be kind and forgiving of this world. The Bible points out the last days in time. And how many of the things today were described three thousand years ago.
James 1:21

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

Wait On The Lord They Say.

In theory, and according to the Bible we are to "wait" on the LORD.  The truth of the matter is: The Lord is with us the whole time. Even when we don't know who he is. His angels look out for us. It is not that we have to wait on him. He is waiting on us. To realize who he is. How much he loves us. What we have to do to maintain and recieve his love. It is simple as that.

John 3:16
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

Let Us Pray For The Tormented Souls

When death and tragedy hit very near to home, it rocks something inside of you. It is funny when Jesus walked amongst the people the possessed would ask him straight up. Mark 5 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”
We have many who walk amongst us, tormented. Unclean, and taken over by the enemy. We must pray always. Ask for protection from a higher source then ourselves. God is a good God. We have the armor, we have the angels.

And You Continue To Pray And Pray And Pray

It is very easy to lose sight of ones intention when you have an open heart. You naturally think that everyone thinks the same as you. You find it difficult to envision evil, discourse, uncleanliness to be in a person. You approach everyone the same until you get hurt over and over again, at least that is what many think. In Gods world, he experienced the same thing. The pain of mankind doing the same silly things. He (God) getting hurt over and over again. Until finally he said enough is enough. Mankind is going to keep doing the same things, I love them but there has to be something I can do so they recognize their faults. Something or someone I can send to intercede. The rest is history and one must remember that  God forgives always. 
Romans 5:5
and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
