I AM THE VINE YE ARE THE BRANCHES, HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT; FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING….JOHN:15-5
Sometimes you realize as you grow, that the things you cared about are not the same. You realize as you put so much energy, into people, or situations, that these things did not matter, because Christ was not in these things. The energy and hope, and love, and even attention did not matter because these were “barren” seeds you planted. There was no way, they could produce anything because Christ was not in these things. You can let go, now, you can have peace, because unless Christ is in a situation, you realize there is “nothing” without Him.
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 25:8 KJV)
The power of God in our lives as we seek Him reminds me there is nothing He cannot do. All things are possible. Sure we cry and there are times it seems so hard. But let God speak to your heart even now and remind you of how great He is and He can change things. Even as He changes all of us to grow in His love. We see the difference. We see His love. Christ is the greatest example of this. He is love.
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (Romans 5:2 KJV). http://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com

The King James scripture says in Proverbs 3:5 TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.
Friends, its easy, to doubt, and just throw in the towel. That is easy. It is a determined, disciplined action, to “trust” God. So you have to make the effort. When those negative thoughts come, that is like the scripture says… “Inclining unto your own understanding” And that is exactly what the devil wants you to do. Be careful with that. We want the mind of Christ, but we have to “submit” to God. Trusting God with all our heart. This is how we resist the enemy, and he will flee. But your mind, has to “trust” God, to “submit to Him.
James 4:7 tells us this. SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.
Catch yourself, when you are thinking negative, doubting even God. Repent, and tell God you trust Him. This is submitting to God. Blessings and love for you today. No tickling of the ears, just straight truth, and praying we all get it right! Please share this message with your friends.
Courage, we need it in this life we live. We need to grow, and be strong. We don’t have to be tossed, and pushed, and pulled, with the cares of this world. Or even by other people. In my journey through life, I have always been in a fight, or a challenge. Do I like them? No.
But God has used them to make me stronger. For Him, and for others. But through these challenges, where I had to survive, now I long to thrive. Yes, Christ promised life abundantly. On earth as it is in heaven. And I have learned, one can grow, but you cannot throw away your courage. I take what God has given me, by His Holy word, my King James Bible that I meditate on day, and night, and the resources, God has given me.
If you do not have true spiritual discernment, with courage, life will defeat you. Not to mention the devil, its his plan that you do not meet your potential, or grow. And to be in darkness
Don’t give up the fight! Street smarts, are nothing compared to Gods knowledge. He tells us people perish for lack of knowledge….and He tells us, never to throw our confidence away. Courage makes a way for confidence. The cross, will save you, but you have your part, and you have to learn and grow, with God.
Read Hosea 4:6 for scriptural insight on this, and Hebrews 10:35. Usually I write them for you but today the Lord said, let them research my word…..
Obedient, I share. Love you all.
Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. Ezekiel 34:22
God will save His people. The flock of God must “pray” to be delivered…God will judge…
Do we take things for granted, in this life? I just sense how fragile we can be. How precious life is. I don’t want to take any chances, in this life.
When I was younger, I did not see that everything, created by God, was created for a purpose. Every person, God has a plan for. Gives new meaning to life, and to understand, this, without going into detail, is mind boggling, when abortion is also not understood.
But when one does not commit to God, in everything, and yes prayer, it just seems the odds are, that you are vulnerable in this life.
So many times, He protected me, even though, I was so naive. Being at the wrong place, or with the wrong people, or just unaware….
Yes… God will save you. But you have your part in prayer…Jesus the great shepherd looks over His flock, and can protect you, from anything. But do you pray? Do you ask God to deliver you?
I just have a sense, that more then ever, we need to pray. I see the world, and I see how things have changed, and well, not to be fearful, I am praying. Because in that, God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7 King James Bible (paraphrasing)
Father, with praise in my heart, I put every situation in your hands, concerning me and my family. Friends….the body of Christ. Deliver us from evil, harm, and may no weapon formed prosper against us. Keep us free….Give us a sense to be continually seeking you, and that we will not grow cold or indifferent in our prayers. Lord, your holy word, is so precious to me. I cherish my King James Bible. It is anointed, and I count on it, for the promises, and the power, you provide. Lord, calm the fears, that the enemy may use, and quench the fiery darts, as we all keep the armor of God on.
In Jesus name. Amen
Yesterday, I wrote I was passionate about truth, and well Father, knows my heart.
I love truth. And well, today in my Bible reading, the Lord brought me directly to I John 3:19-24. And I do recommend you read it, if you deal with doubt, if your heart is condemning you, and your trying to fight…. It seems a losing battle.
You see God is greater than our heart, and God the King knows all things. Where is our confidence? Where is our trust? I do recommend you see it from the perspective of the King James, where the anointing is. It ministered to me this morning, as I stir up my faith.
My confidence is in God, and as I remind myself, condemnation does not come from God. But from the devil himself. I receive conviction. How about you do you know the difference, between condemnation and conviction?
Conviction does come from God, and there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. (Romans 8:1) These scriptures may help you. Food for thought. Scripture food for thought…..
AND HEREBY WE KNOW THAT WE ARE OF THE TRUTH, AND SHALL ASSURE OUR HEARTS BEFORE HIM. I JOHN 3:19.
