Thankful for the Word

Psalm 38
This is another psalm of David, pouring out his heart to God over his sin. I have felt this way, especially when I spent almost 7 whole years feeling this way and was in and out of the hospital for major depression and suicidal attempts…. and I was just
THANKING GOD this morning for a few things as I cried tears of joy instead of depression…
1. Thank God for David’s heart
2. Thank God that David had faith to see his Savior in God
3. Thank God that He had David’s heartfelt prayers written down for us to be able to see what worshiping and trusting God in spirit and in truth looks like, to see what true faith and repentance is, to know we are not alone in falling & then believing God to pick us back up
4. Thank God for preserving His Word for us today to have to encourage us and to teach us and bless us and to help us KNOW HIM
TODAY, I JUST THANK MY FATHER, my Everlasting Father, Jesus, I thank God, my Lord, my Savior, my Comforter, my Teacher, my All.

Choose Today God vs Devil Good vs Evil

Š†

The Lord God Almighty is about to show this world very clearly that there is only one choice.

God is about to show the earth and its inhabitants that Satan is the god of the world. God is going to make it clear that the only choice is God or the devil. Evil and wickedness will be unveiled to be seen for exactly what it is and also the one who is behind it, the devil.

I felt this morning like the Lord told me to mark this down and to share it with others. I also felt like He told me to share any confirmations of this word. There will be other prophetic voices that God speaks to that will be speaking this same message.

The Lord reminded me these are the last days and His purpose for the earth is being fulfilled and His purpose for humankind and for the devil. Evil will be exterminated, but only after it has reached its fullness and those who would reject evil and choose God and cling to His love have come into the fold of God through Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Also, TODAY, while you hear His voice is the time of salvation. While it is yet, TODAY, choose Jesus over this world and its evil schemes and wickedness. If TODAY, you hear His voice, make your choice.  The choice really is between good and evil – God or the devil – and we are going to be shown with our eyes, evil unveiled. Those who’ve made their choice for evil or against good, will soon be unable to change that choice. When all of the “acceptable” evils are shown for their true and full wicked intent, many will be shocked and terrified.

It is time to examine our hearts and our ways and see if there be any wicked way in us and turn from and reject the evil and RUN TO GOD!

Hebrews 3: 12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily,as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. 15 As has just been said:

“Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts
    as you did in the rebellion.”

Psalm 95:7b Today, if only you would hear his voice, 8 “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,

First confirmation to me of this message: I went to http://www.biblegateway.com to copy and paste the above verses from Hebrews and Psalm 95 and this is the “verse of the day:”

Verse of the Day

Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

Psalm 97:10 NIV

***** My additional thoughts: Let us not be deceived. Let us love one another in Christ but let us not accept sin because sin hurts us and others. Sin separates loved ones and sin destroys lives. We can love a person and still not accept the behavior that hurts them, us and others. We need to speak the truth in LOVE. We need to persevere in our faith and our faith is in God’s unfailing love for us. These three remain: faith, hope and love. The greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13
Jesus came to save and to show the way, the truth and the life. He came to love, heal and forgive. Are we doing that? We must do that to the end. Fear not for He is with us. Jesus has overcome the world. If you know Jesus then you are victorious. Stand firm in your faith and be encouraged.
Another confirmation: I was looking for an image for this post and I came across this blog post written by a sister in Christ. Her blog is called “God Whispers” and even though this post was written in 2011, the message is so similar to what I have posted here. So I am linking to her blog right here: “God Whispers: The Authority of King Jesus”

A True Treasure

Friends, the Word of God is truly a treasure that He gave to us. Why don’t we dig into it more often and deeper? And for ourselves? For His Spirit will speak to us and does speak to us when we do! What a blessing! Please don’t take it for granted. I am talking to myself, too! I know it’s difficult at first and at times but the more we do read and dig into the Bible, His Word, the more He reveals! Such a worthy endeavor!! Thank You Jesus!!!

Faithleaders! ?

I’m convinced we need faithleaders, much like cheerleaders. Jesus is raising up those who are willing to persevere and worship Him throughout their lives, come what may.

Faithleaders  who will also encourage others with reminders of victories and promises of victory. We have victory over death and darkness, sin and sickness,  and separation from God – we have victory in Jesus.

Faithleaders that will shout throughout eternity that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Do you feel the call?
