Without faith no one can please God because the one coming to God must believe He exists, and He rewards those who come seeking.
You were called to this kind of endurance, because Christ suffered on your behalf. He left you an example so that you might follow in His footsteps. (1 Peter 2:21)
Never Betray My Trust, Get Over “It” and Keep Walking In My Will
When we are dis-illusioned, hurt, or even horrified at the words or actions of another, especially one that is close whether a friend or family, the greatest lesson we can learn is to keep our eyes on Jesus! He never will let us down or dis-appoint us.
He will never give us wrong advice. And He will never withhold all we need to cope with our NEED.
The Lord gives grace and glory, no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly with Him.
How can two walk together unless they agree? Unless they are heading the same way?
When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. (Proverbs 4:12)
I pray that my feet may be set on Christ, the Solid Rock and that He will guide my coming and going each day. Amen.
No Dis-Ability, No In-Validity in Jesus Christ! For He is Faithful and True! Jesus Christ is REAL! Our Identity and Worth
are only to be found in Him.
It’s perfectly natural to envy those who are successful. It’s even natural to want to imitate them. But what about those who’ve gotten ahead by doing the wrong thing? Sometimes it seems crime does pay, the good do die young, and the wicked do have more fun. But it only appears this way; it is not reality. In reality the success of wrongdoers is short-lived. God is against them, and their house is built on the sand. Even if it seems to be a grand house, it will soon come crashing down.
Do not start down the road of the wicked—the first step is easy, but it leads to heartache— do not go along the way of evildoers.
Stay away from it; don’t even go past it—and if you find yourself anywhere near it,
turn your back and run as far as you can in the opposite direction.
For evildoers are so twisted they cannot sleep unless they have caused harm;
they’ll lie awake all night until they figure out a way to cause someone to stumble.
For they feed on evil the way most eat bread; they drink violence the way most guzzle wine.
Yet the way of those who do right is like the early morning sun that shines brighter and brighter until noon.
Evildoers travel a dark road because they love to hide their deeds in darkness;
they can’t see the perils ahead that cause them to stumble.
Keep your head up, your eyes straight ahead, and your focus fixed on what is in front of you.
Take care you don’t stray from the straight path, the way of truth, and you will safely reach the end of your road.
Do not veer off course to the right or the left; step away from evil, and leave it behind.
The Life of Freedom
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:15)
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
(2 Corinthians 3:17)
Yet though Free, to Serve One Another by Love: To Walk in the Spirit, Bearing the Fruit Thereof, Not in the Works of the Flesh.
Don’t owe anyone anything, with the exception of love to one another—that is a debt which never ends—because the person who loves others has fulfilled the law. The commands given to you in the Scriptures—do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not take what is not yours, do not covet —and any other command you have heard are summarized in God’s instruction: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Does love hurt anyone? Absolutely not. In fact, love achieves everything the law requires.
You are so wise! You put up with fools! You listen to anyone who tells you what to do or makes money off of you or sets a trap for you. You will listen to anyone who makes himself bigger than you or hits you in the face.
2 Corinthians 11:19-20
We must long to see the goodness of God in the land of the living.
I would have fainted had I not believed to see the goodness of God in the land of the living
Wait I say upon the Lord & He will strengthen your heart.
Teaching or studying about God does no good unless He is present.
All my children will be taught by the LORD & great shall be the peace of my children.
Taste and SEE that the LORD is good! No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly with Him.
Like Jesus we must DESIRE the MANIFESTATION of the Father’s power & love. With Jesus we are then enabled to say
“if you don’t believe me, believe the works that I do!“
GREATER THINGS ARE YET TO COME
ONLY those who stand in awe of the Eternal will have intimacy with Him,
and He will reveal His covenant to them.
PERPETUALLY my focus takes me to the Eternal
because He will set me free from the traps laid for me.
The crucified and risen Jesus is the model that I, like the apostle Paul, desire to embody by walking deep in His pathway of death and life—suffering and resurrection.
But whatever I used to count as my greatest accomplishments, I’ve written them off as a loss because of the Anointed One. And more so, I now realize that all I gained and thought was important was nothing but yesterday’s garbage compared to knowing the Anointed Jesus my Lord. For Him I have thrown everything aside—it’s nothing but a pile of waste—so that I may gain Him. When it counts, I want to be found belonging to Him, not clinging to my own righteousness based on law, but actively relying on the faithfulness of the Anointed One. This is true righteousness, supplied by God, acquired by faith. I want to know Him inside and out. I want to experience the power of His resurrection and join in His suffering, shaped by His death, so that I may arrive safely at the resurrection from the dead.
I’m not there yet, nor have I become perfect; but I am charging on to gain anything and everything the Anointed One, Jesus, has in store for me—and nothing will stand in my way because He has grabbed me and won’t let me go. Brothers and sisters, as I said, I know I have not arrived; but there’s one thing I am doing: I’m leaving my old life behind, putting everything on the line for this mission. I am sprinting toward the only goal that counts: to cross the line, to win the prize, and to hear God’s call to resurrection life found exclusively in Jesus the Anointed. All of us who are mature ought to think the same way about these matters. If you have a different attitude, then God will reveal this to you as well. For now, let’s hold on to what we have been shown and keep in step with these teachings.
Imitate me, brothers and sisters, and look around to those already following the example we have set. I have warned you before (and now say again through my tears) that we have many enemies—people who reject the cross of the Anointed. They are ruled by their bellies, their glory comes by shame, and their minds are fixed on the things of this world. They are doomed. But we are citizens of heaven, exiles on earth waiting eagerly for a Liberator, our Lord Jesus the Anointed, to come and transform these humble, earthly bodies into the form of His glorious body by the same power that brings all things under His control.
The people that know their God will do mighty exploits.
In Your NAME i walk all day long.
Jesus Christ FOREVER THE SAME ALWAYS FAITHFUL & TRUE WITH US TO THE VERY END of this earth age!
