Our God

So many would question the existence of spirituality, namely the belief in God. They who do have that choice. My comfort in knowing my God is that through the death of Jesus my soul was saved. When the rath does come , knowing the father the son and the Holy Spirit  is essential .
Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

As A Shepherd Tends To His Flock

Ezekiel 34:12
As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness

What Is Spiritual Warfare?

Romans 7:23
But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Spiritual warfare is the constant struggle in doing right or wrong. The good vs evil. We are human and are born into sin. Jesus is our redemption . Our savior.

I Remain Humble

Through peaks and valleys we must remain humble and filled with humility. Praising God for our very existence. The world is full of tainted , broken souls. Who are lost.

His Grace Is The Example

I do not like to use any other author words per batum, for my daily inspiration,however Joel Osteen's camp provided the words so elegantly today, I have to add them to The Mothers Prayer as they were written. 
His Grace is Enough

Grace is God’s unmerited favor. It’s kindness from Him that we don’t deserve. Grace empowers and strengthens us. No matter what has happened in your past, you can receive God’s grace and forgiveness and start fresh today. You can hold your head up high because His grace is enough. You may not be perfect, but you are forgiven.

When you go around holding on to your past mistakes or think you have to try to make things up to God, it’s like saying that His grace isn’t enough. Hold on to the truth that Jesus has already paid for your mistakes. All you have to do is receive His grace and thank Him for His favor and empowerment in your life.

In the same way, extend that grace to others. Don’t try to punish people for their past mistakes; instead, give them favor to start over. Let God’s grace flow through you so we can all rise higher together into the life of victory He has promised.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your goodness and grace today. I receive Your strength and favor in my life. Help me to extend that grace to others and always show Your love in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

The Battle Is Not Yours It's The Lords

So many times. Far more often than not. Does man take matters in his own hands. Taking his logic and turning the world upside down and inside out. Those of us who recognize who the author of sin, mockery, division, confusion is, we pretty much expect what we see as common place. But we are all knowing  that what we see does not have to be our world. We are Gods children. And God enlisted his one and only son to be that sacrifice for us to see, learn and be guided by. Through Jesus we are saved.

There Is meaning To It All

It's no clearer than the sun rising or the sun setting. That we have choice in our belief system . Christ existed. He was a real man. He lived and breathed with air, ate and drank as we do.  There was a reason why he lived this way. God chose this as a lesson to all mankind. It is our choice to believe in Gods living word.

Blessings And Benefits

Gods purpose is greater than we relalize. We count our blessing not considering at times that these are all leading to the grand plan that God has for you. Stay faithful. Practice being unwavering . That is the ultimate challenge.

Corinthians 12:9-10
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. 
10 That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Spirit Of Truth

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. The world that we live in is a frightening place. Without Jesus in my life. The existence that I have would be tortuous. And filled with treachery .

Entitled

There is no way on earth that a sinner should feel above any person place or thing. 

Philippians 2:3-12

Do  from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,[a]who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,[b] being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Fruit Is Either Sweet Or Rotten

It takes time and experience to weather the storms of life. We need only to rely on one source fo that. 
 By way of  Jesus Christ, the road is much easier.

When The Trumpets Sound

Matthew 12:30-31…30"And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31"And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

The Year Of The Lords Favor

                                       
                  Isaiah 61   

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
    foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
    you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
    and in their riches you will boast.

Instead of your shame
    you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
    you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.

“For I, the Lord, love justice;
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
    and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be known among the nations
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
    that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”

10 I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
    and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
    and praise spring up before all nations.

The Fiery Trials

1 Peter 4:12-13     ,
Do not be surprised at the fiery trial that has come upon you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed at the revelation of His glory.

Oh The Hypocrites

Matthew 12:25-38
 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 
If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 
 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 
But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
 "Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house. 
 "He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
 And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 
 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. 
"Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. 
You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. 
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.
 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. 
For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

Gentle Is The Spirit

1 Peter 3:4
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

The Grim Reapers

How many town criers do we need? Yes, strife and injustice is prevealant but what are the callers , really doing? Abstaining from God. Preaching the same war that the enemy is preaching. Let's see.... History shows an abundance of civilizations disappearing off of the earth. Hmmm. Science or God?

    and forget not all his benefits

Teaching Moments

God has left us a manual to teach and learn by. All is forgiven if we confess with our mouths. We have choices yes. However repenting sin and accepting Jesus Christ as your savior, brings you to the level in which true life through the living word is possible.

2 Timothy 2:25

Correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth.

Let Your Light Shine Upon Us

Life has a way of showing us the good , the bad, and the ugly. We sometimes fall victim into the energy that surrounds us. With God's strength overcoming calamity, is eminent. There are forces of good. Call on God to bring them near.

Our Life Samples

Throughout the bible, you will find more than enough men and women who have lived through the grind of humanism. Paul was an example of determination. One who died for who and what he believed in. Jesus Christ and God.
Philippians 3:12-16

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

The Glory Of God

Revelation 21:11

Having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

The Best Love Given The Best Love Recieved

We are human sometimes narcissistic beings. We thrive on love. Love can be misguided. Love can be so yearned for, that any learned behavior to get it takes over. Here's what should take place. A child should be shown true love. Unconditional Love. Yet mankind falls short. But God? Oh Yes God can and will show just that. Because we are ultra sinners we must know that in order to know what love feels, and looks life. Look to Jesus. The sacrificial lamb. His blood and suffering made it possible to receive eternal life.

Grief Stricken

Lamentations 3:31-33

31 For the Lord will not
    cast off forever,
32 but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion
    according to the abundance of his steadfast love;
33 for he does not afflict from his heart
    or grieve the children of men.

Believe

Ephesians 2:8-10
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
