Is God the center of your life?

Dear friends,

This is a silent prayer, a request to self examine thyself daily. To ask God this question. “What do you want to do now?” Let Him answer, is it to work on your responses towards other people, your mindset towards someone, your selfish attitude towards what you want instead of what God has for you.

This has been a hard few months for me. The self examination is key to getting closer to God. He cannot fill a cup that is already full. He cannot teach anything to someone who has decided they are fine the way they are. Do not settle for second best. Do not stop at lukewarm. Do not stop being/doing what God has asked of you because of other peoples opinions. We are not to discuss spiritual things with those of the flesh. Do not hold back, follow God when people hurt you, when your friends leave you, when your family shuns you, when humanity turns it’s back on you. For they turned their backs on Him before us. May we band together as brothers and sisters in Christ, may we encourage each other in this time of need; God never said following Him was easy, stay strong and in prayer so that the Father may communicate with you and tell you when it is time to move, Hallelujah, Amen!

Follow God…

Searching, waiting, looking for what the Father has for us through our own fleshly lens is never a good thing. “God has a plan for you.” This is something every christian has heard at least once in his or her lifetime. Go left says one thought, no go right says the next thought. Feelings amount to nothing in the spiritual realm. How you feel about anything pertaining to Christ means nothing. And yet we chalk so many things up to a feeling, a gut instinct. When will the children of Christ find their answers through the scope of our father given to us through the spirit he has placed in us? The strength to do the right thing does not come from us but from God, the decrement from the Holy Spirit and the tenacity to carry it out through constant prayer through Jesus Christ. We must fight dressed in the armor of God through the power of the triune God. Prayer and Fasting is the Key to a life with Christ. We should want of nothing other than this, exactly what God has for us. Our joy comes through the Lord, not our accomplishments, not our feelings, not our friends, not our family, and not our things.

The word of God guides us in the way we should go. These scriptures are the start of a long journey for you if you are willing to take it. Be in the word, fast and pray. Demand to not be ignored by God. Restle with him like Jacob did, dance for him like Daniel and do His bidding like Paul. Have faith like Noah, stand steadfast like Job. Look for him like Ruth, have patience and wait for him like Esther. Follow His word, He will make the right decisions, not you. May these scriptures encourage you and set you on a path with God that will never be tame.

14. For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15. And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but not him which died for them, and rose again… 20. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

2 Corinthians 5:14-21

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:58

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, wait you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity.

1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I have the fight of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envied not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seekers not her own, is not easily provoked, thinkers no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faith: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I spake as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

1 Corinthians 13

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Romans 1:16-17

But rise, and stand upon they feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which though haste seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee: Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Acts 26:16-18

Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

Acts 18:9-10

What Defines Us

What defines us as Christians? This can be a tricky question and depending on what type of christian you are your answer will be different. All religions have a way of identifying each other, it is typically by something they do regularly. Like a Catholic that goes to confessional or how one might have their ladies wearing skirts and never cutting their hair. But what defines us christians who simply follow the bible and do what God asks of them? I became really sad when a friend of mine was afraid that we could not be friends because all of the other Christians in his life practically expect him to be perfect and act all righteous when they are with him, as if they have never sinned in their life. My Heart broke as he told me this. Brothers and sisters God saved all of us and has forgiven everyone for their sins, so why do we look on the people who are not like us with such prejudice, judging every move they make. Jesus told us when we were wrong but he did not bash us when we did not know any better. I do not care if you have been a christian your whole life we have all sinned. The Bible puts lying on the same level as witchcraft meaning that there are no levels of sin to God. So even if your worst sin is lying it is still just as bad as a murderer.

We should accept people as they are like Jesus did. How else will they see God and want him just as much as we do. We cannot be the light if we are to busy dealing with the dark in our thoughts. Actions say more than words ever will. If you meet someone who does not see God as one who has saved us and is always there for us then show him/her love. Gods unending love. Show understanding and care for them. Let them ask questions and then let the holy spirit in you answer them. These people will only see God when you choose not to get in the way. Anyone who is not yet with God has just not accepted the fact He saved them and has forgiven them. But God still sent his Son to die on the cross for them so they are just as much Gods children as they are human and made of the flesh.

Pray that God takes over your daily life, actions, words & thoughts so that people can see him in you. I wish that all would come to see and love God the way I do, it is sad to know that we all will not make it. But strive to let God have his way. I have realized that we cannot do anything without Him. Pretty pathetic right, He died for us and the only thing he gets in return is full control over us so that he can have his way; we can’t even help him. What a wonderful God we serve, I truly feel blessed.

I feel like I am not giving enough. But it will never be enough. We must all humble ourselves and pray that the Father takes us over so that others see him. The more of us that take this on the more of Gods light everyone else will see. You cannot do anything but surrender. What does that mean? Well, Friends, that means that you cannot gain wisdom without him, you cannot understand his way without him, you cannot do the right thing without him, you cannot lead someone to him without him, you cannot preach his word without him, you cannot lead your family the way he wants without you, you cannot be on the path he has for you without him, you will not make it without Him. Fear of how it will turn out and worry that you aren’t doing it right are things the devil will use against you on your journey. Stay in prayer, ask for peace. He will lead the way for you, you just have to let him. Let every day pass with you letting more of yourself go until one day you no longer exist. The flesh is no longer in control and the Spirit of the Lord has complete and full control of your every day life. Never give up, persistence, patience & loyalty, the keys to success.

For those of you who are ready to hear this you will understand what I am saying. For those who do not understand pray that God gives you understanding. They say the squeaky wheel is the one to get the oil, so keep showing up and keep asking God for understanding. I love you all dearly, have a wonderful day.
