Teach Me In Your Ways

Psalm 119 33-40
Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared. Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good. How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness.

The Hopeless

It is common to see those who have given up. There is no light in their eyes. They seem to be "living"by way of any means necessary. Some beg with signs letting the public feel their desperation. Some sleep where ever they can. Some eat out of trash cans. Some drink alcohol . Some do devious unadulterated things. Yes, the hopeless walk amongst us. We must remember that God can change anything or anyone. We simply have to pray for them and ourselves. We are but a step away from hopelessness and despair. Pray indeed.

Wants And Needs Knowing The Difference

This world is full of instantaneous everything. Including love and satisfaction. The problem with this is it trains the mind to act and behave in ways that are detrimental to mankind as a whole. There is nothing earned therefore nothing of value seems to exist. Those that give unconditionally and from the heart, expect nothing in return. Like God this is the belief and added value that one simply wants the best for you. No strings attached. For the instantaneous that can be beneficial. For the giver it can be draining.
God is good however, and takes control as to teaching everyone in one form or fashion.

Gods Balance & Timing

It is not always clear as to how and what God gives us. And when. How does one realize "it" is from God himself?

It Is Amazing This Thing. Called Life

Our lives are individual and indepependent of one another. Yet we are sociable people . We cannot live well isolated  from one another. .  One may ask "then why do we treat each other better ?"God loves us unconditionally . We shale make every effort to do the same.

There Is No Other Love Like Gods Love

It is as plain and simple as that. Our God is a living God. No other "religion" can make any such statement. Of course if one does not have a personal relationship with God one would never know.

The WarriorS Stance

As seasons come and go so do battles.  We  who walk the path of righteousness feel the enemies rath. Simply because the enemy keeps us in his sight all the time. The never ending battle is always Good vs Evil.

Spirituality

Spirituality is as individual as each and every one of us. No one person experiences the same connection to God as the other. And a man cannot lead you to that connection. That is why it is called spirituality.

In These End Of Times

It is very difficult to fight a spiritual war without God. It is impossible. Weariness sets in. Sometimes health can be affected. Relationships suffer. No we need Gods love and protection.

Throwing Caution To The Wind

Many faithless people walk around with worry. Worried about things. Money. Cars. Power. Vanity. Everything superficial there is they prey upon. Obsess about. Have faith in God. Have peace in knowing that he will provide your every need. The world can not give you what God can give you.

Pslam 40:4
Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.

Psalm 40:2
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

Gods Love Is Deep

There is nothing more honorable then receiving the love of God. Knowing that he has his hands on you and all who except him is such a great feeling .

Standing At The Crossroads

Is there ever a day when life isn't a challenge ? Is there ever a minute that the devil isn't busy? What happens if "the busy" is working or sleeping right next to you? Do you cut your nose off to spite your face? Do you compromise your value system? Or do you take from the situation the face value and move on ?Stepping completely out on faith. Crossroads in life can be scary. However if you have been across a few and you have God on your side. The choices become clearer and less challenging. We know who is for us. With that said, who can be against us?

The Wicked And Evil Walk Amongst Us

Psalms 138:7
    Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
    How is it that many of us do not know what to do when confronted with the enemy? Many don't recognize or become entangled before they do. King David faced his enemy head on in battle many, many times. In fact his best friend became his arch enemy who spent many years trying to kill him. He ended up dying on his own sword. Classic example of what the enemy can do if you do not have God as your foothold.

We Live And We Learn

God has given us the tools to live life according to the way we as individuals should. In other words no two are alike. And no one can walk in your shoes but you.  God designed this on purpose.
We can think , make choices . Live life according to God. That the acceptance of Jesus Christ as lord and savior is as it should be.

Our Work Is Never Done

There are times when weariness out weighs just about everything. It is not a sign of weakness(weariness). It does not lead you to losing faith. No none of this. What weariness does tell you is you need your batteries re-charged. God is the pilot. You are along for the ride. Continue to call on him to supply all of your needs.

Our Coping Methods

This world is vast  and never ending. Constantly in motion and so full of energy. Energy consist of both positive and negative forces. Question is how do we steer clear of the negative and stay in the  in the positive? How do we prevent damage from occurring when those fiery darts are hurdled our way? What if the devil has taken hold? Attacks are eminent. Both physically and  spiritually. There is but one solution.

End Days

If you are familiar with the Bible there is plenty a prophesying about end times.
The question is if we are are  in end times ,are we right with God? That simply means is your faith and belief in him strong?

Do you thank and praise him everyday? Are you giving from the heart unconditionally? Do we ask to be forgiven for our sins? Does grace and mercy follow us through out our days? Do we know that with the acceptance of Jesus Christ as our savior, God has got our backs through any time?

Timothy 3:1-5
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

Clean And Simple

There are so many in this unforgiving world who think "image" is everything. That looking the part, makes he or she important. That shallowness can be looked beyond. It is unfortunate but true. The world also has the believer. The humble but all knowing. Understanding that faith is the basis for a believers existence . That in itself cannot be fake or phony.

Gods Grace For Me Is Good Enough

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

No matter what the world hurdles at you. You have a bigger and better army. Keep in mind the devil got kicked out of heaven. Only Gods power can do something like that. Know him. Love him . Embrace him. Have faith in him.

When God Is Questioned

Use your imagination in the scenario with Jesus and his companions of several years, still questioning the validity of what you(Jesus) do? Oh my goodness. There are many such points in the bible. And when you read them in the tongue in which they were written(Greek & Latin) Jesus lets them  know ( his disciples ) in no uncertain terms who he is. And that he (Jesus ) knows they will cower and not stand up for him when the time comes. It is not hard to see this as it occured back then. And envision it with the world today. How many would believe in Jesus if he walked this earth today?

Luke 24:25-27
He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

Belief

 

Move Past the Obstacles

One of my favorite characters in the Bible is David. His life challenges were chronicled and writen about  many times over. He led a life similar to some in today's times. His dad and brothers wanted him to hurry to grow into a man. They gave him responsibilities ( his flock of sheep). They relied on him to keep them safe.  Here comes  his first challenges and obstacles . It began with the giant. These type of things occured through out Davids life. David had one major thing on his side. He had God. God had his eye on him always. As he does on us today. We must trust and believe.

Let No Weapons Form Against Me

The enemy is so plentiful. So readily availible for the lost and the weak. However the devil will stop at nothing in perusing the righteous as well. After all he tempted Christ himself. It is up to us to remember where we get our strength from. Gods army is a mighty one. Never forget that.

We Are In This Together

How is it that some believe that it is man alone that leads this world? No effort on non believers to believe otherwise. The lost remain lost. God on the other hand has a path lit for each and everyone who believes.

In Our Best Interest

As stated in so many of the entries here, knowing God is a choice. God would not have believers forced into submission. No faith comes from the soul, heart, it is our minds and bodies that follow.

Conviction As Opposed To Condemnation

What is the difference between condemnation and Conviction?

Conviction shows you the answer (the Blood of Jesus, which washes away sin), while condemnation shows you the problem (the sin, the past and your failures). Condemnation shows you the problem, but conviction shows you the answer.
Condemnation shouts, "Your past! Your sins! You loser!" But conviction shouts, "The Blood of Jesus washes away sins! Come to Jesus and be forgiven of your sins! You can be forgiven! Your sins and past don't have to be a part of you anymore!"
Jesus did NOT come to condemn the world There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). Satan on the other hand is KNOWN for accusing the brethren

In Due Time

Time tends to reveal many things. It stops for no one . It is demanding. Things and people come and go with time. The good, the bad, the indifferent comes out with time. But Gods time is not measured in the increments that we know. Things from God are revealed in due time. We must wait on The Lord.

To Be Caring And Thoughtful

There are so many out in this world today who have no idea what empathy means. What it means to truly care about another human being. It takes having a heart and a soul to do so. It takes having been loved by someone to be able to show another what love and caring can do. It is part of the human psyche . If it missing one is simply lost. Gods love is everlasting, if one believes, he or she will know Gods love and that through Jesus all things are possible.
