Good Morning all
God is so good .. 2 Things hes talking to me about today .. you know the Song where he leads I will follow .. when we used to sing it don't hear it much today ..
BUT I used to think do I mean this .. he talks about taking up his Cross and following him .. think,,, all the men who just dropped all they did to follow him
why do you think that was .. I can only imagine God radiated out of him .. He was anointed from Birth but Gods Spirit was on him .. He came to set us free
to teach us to abide in him .. to allow him to show us the way .. So many just don't understand hes in you .. WE are a 3 Fold body .. Spirit .. Soul.. Body
we have a fleshly Body the Spirit and soul live in . we have to take care of it its the home here on earth .. Then we have a Soul and Spirit .. when you
except Jesus into your heart hes there .. now the war begins .. when you except him you said devil im Gods I will walk with God ..but the war is not for
our Spirit but our Soul which if you will is your mind .. now the mind has to be renewed daily ... it wants to go back to what it did .. so there is a war
on For our soul the devil wants us to sin .. daily .. you hear .. come on a drink or a extra bite it wont kill you .. think of eve in the garden .. as the devil whispered im sure he
did it constant .. she knew better .. but im sure he caught her at a week moment .. God forgive us we have them .. the devil knows your weakness .. and
that is where he tries to get you .. for me for 30 plus years it was food .. when I stopped smoking in my 20ies .. early on like I had just turned 20
I had a grandma who taught me GODS ways my parents were to busy .. and that is about all I heard about Jesus .. I soooo loved my Grandma .. I would go
stay at her house and we would read Gods word... then later in my 30s God became real to me .. he asked me to get off the fence .. To live for him ..
and I jumped .. then is when I learned God will teach you .. so the Bible became different .. it came alive .. I saw things in it I had never seen before
God woke me up to show me things .. 2 or 3 am we had a party .. I have since learned not many people seek his face .. sad .. he so longs for each one of us
to .. many just visit him on Sunday and the rest of the week live like they want .. but he showed me so many things .. One of the most important things
God has taught me is James .. he talks about how important what we say is .. if people only really knew . you can speak life or death on someone .. or
even yourself .. ya many say you are far out there but I can show you .. if you believe Gods word I can show you .. read James .. see for yourselves
by all means don't take my word .. never takes mans check them out many are far off .. you know how many people say they are gonna get the flu lol and they
get it oh ya why they said it .. no wonder huh .. yes I believe Gods word and further more .. I know its true.. God is Faithful but so much we are not
We have to renew the mind .. when satan whispers in your ear .. do what God says to do .. James4: 1 ¶ From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
look at verse 7 Submit yourselves to God .. Resist the devil and he has to flee ..
you have the power to resist him .. but you have to summit to God first ..
Do yourself a favor take a mental note .. watch for one day what you say you will be amazed ..Watch your words .. The world God framed with words ..
under God Jesus gave you power to speak life or death .. be careful .. Proverbs18: 21 ¶ Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
I for one Choose life .. and I choose life for you .. lets be a Blessing to someone today .. God loves you Bless them .. love Betty
