II Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.... Satan is stronger today and he tries everyday to reel you back in to his way of thinking ---selfishness, envy, lust and ungodly morals and etc.. We can be caught up again. No, we can not lose our salvation, but we can be reel back in to sin deeply... Stay in God's word daily keep JESUS first in your life's and stay in church, memorize scripture and when Satan comes knocking you have a weapon to keep him out that is God's power and authority. Satan job is not only to keep individuals from salvation, but to keep you from presenting the gospel to someone. Be on guard ready to attach him back when he throws an dart at you..
Yes, that is me today... Believe me a mom of three boys and being a mom to a 14 mth old gets very hard some days... Especially, when the 14 mth old is teething yes some more of those bottom teeth are coming in those 5am crying in pain... Today I am feeling completely run down throat hurts and ears hurt and please let me stop crying myself....
You know those little things are just minor in comparison of what I have witness in others lives and the obstacles they are going through...Lord help me to hold my head up and praise your name even when the names seem to painful to even walk.. What my Lord suffered for me and you.. How can we ever complain about any pain???
This morning I signed the two oldest children up for upward bound basketball at a local church.... Then we went to the store and got a few items at the store and then filled up the van with gas and guess what I was able to get some groceries and gas for under a $100 that is something to praise God about... We all remember a few weeks ago when gas was so high we thought we would die.... Mom and dad stay with the younger children and the eldest boy went with me... Hubby had to work today :(
.....Thank God for grandparents what would we do without them.... I would be in a world of hurt some days without my mother for sure.... I have a wonderful parents I am so thankful God gave me to them to raise.....
God help me today to lean on you more... I need your strength and power to get me through.... Psalm 38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. Isaiah 35:3-4 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.
In applying this to our Christian life's--- We all need to accept what God allows in our life's or do you get angry with HIM when things don't go your way. It's okay to tell God your disappointed, but you can be sure that He won't give in to your temper tantrums. Tell Him how you feel but then trust Him and accept His way.
Now, let all take a stand for Jesus and let HIM lead our life's daily and let HIM direct your life through ever decision you make. Now, go on through the rest of this day with confidence and hold that head up high.... Remember you have the most powerful director you could possible have in JESUS... So why do you need anything or anyone else..
Confidence and trust in the LORD that is what we need that will give us bravery:
Proverbs 3:26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep they foot from being taken.
Now, there are a lot of things in life we can put off until another day and another year....
But salvation is not one of those things you need to put off what if you put it off to long... Everyday you live you are closer to death did you ever think of it that way..... God is a fair and just to everyone, but you can not keep putting off salvation there will come a time when God is finish with you if you wait to long...
The scripture 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing. That means we can pray anywhere and everywhere... Ladies while you are doing those dishes praying that God would bless this child that ate from that dish or pray for this husband that works so hard to provide food to be ate from that plate you are washing.... P.U.S.H----Pray Until Something Happens.
Now let's take a look at the fruits of spirit and let all take a look at our life's and see which tract you need to work on in your life.....
