YOU LOST YOUR LOVED ONE
YOU LOST YOUR HEALTH
YOU LOST YOUR LIMB OR LIMBS
YOU LOST YOUR JOB
YOU LOST YOUR BELOVED PET
YOU LOST YOUR MONEY AND CANT PAY THE RENT
YOU LOST YOUR REPUTATION TO LIES, DESTROYING YOUR LIFE.
YOU LOST EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE AND PERHAPS
THINGS YOU CANT BEGIN TO IMAGINE.
Jesus wants us to trust Him in all things and in all
times in all seasons of our lives.
You and I have a greater trust in Christ Jesus
when we have ample money in the bank, when our lives are in order.
When we have our health and all our little ducks are in a row, not a ruffle out of place thats too big for us to smooth over.
When all looks good for months to years down the road its good. We feel good we have a sense of security... false as
it is in the temporary fixes and securities of this world.
WE SHOULD LOOK AT THESE TIMES OF LOSS AS TIMES TO GAIN IN JESUS
God wants to test our faith and wants to prove Himself able to carry us through all things. If when we are willing to surrender all to Him.
The RED SEA reminds us the Hebrews were not prepared for battle against the Egyptian Army
and their hearts were filled with fear at the sight of the Army coming after them.
God proved Himself able to make a way and deliver.
He shows His will to us through His word.
What He has done for others He will do for you and I.
WHEN ADVERSITIES COME AND THEY WILL
If we follow Jesus and trust in Him,
you and I then are being tested for more of our worth in Him.
Here the Lord bids us not to trust in riches.
Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
DO YOU TRUST JESUS ENOUGH TO CARE FOR YOUR NEEDS OR DO YOU IMAGINE HE IS NOT CAPABLE OF CERTAIN THINGS?
JESUS BIDS US NOT TO WORRY OVER THESE THINGS FOR HE WILL MAKE A WAY FOR US.
Matthew 6: 25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for
they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek
for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
TAKE NOTE IT DOES INDEED RAIN ON THE JUST AND THE UNJUST ALIKE.
Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
A TSUNAMI OR EARTHQUAKE OR VOLCANO OR TORNADO CAN AND WILL TAKE EVERYONE IN ITS PATH IF GOD SO DESIRES; SO IT WILL BE.
Thats why we need to be encouraged to be right in the
Lord always be ready for death [saved we rejoice in death
...unsaved obviously we would not rejoice in death as hell would be our eternal fate as appose to heaven]
Realize we never plan on dying today or tomorrow death is the farthest thing from our minds.
Unsaved and death takes us by surprise; is why hell has had to enlarge herself.
Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself,
and opened her mouth without measure:
and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp,
and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
For we the ...SAVED... WE NEED TO TRUST IN JESUS
WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT TELLING YOU TO DO?
WHERE IS HE LEADING YOU?
GOD GIVES US THE DESIRES OF OUR HEART...
MEANING- WALKING AND GROWING IN HIM
HE PUTS DESIRES IN OUR HEARTS, HENCE THAT IS HOW HE LEADS US...
example'' HUNGER FOR THE GREATER GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?
Or He will speak to us in many various ways such as through His Holy Word, ora minister of the word, or friends and family, magazines, newspaper. God can use
anything or any one to speak to us ''internet''
RECALL GOD USED AN ASS IN THE BIBLE TO SPEAK TO THE PROPHET. That should keep us humble.
2 Peter 2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
God can use anything or any one to speak to us
to give us a word of knowledge or to reasure us or to wake us up.
Its funny how we might call it a series of accidents that somehow something good came out from it.
God laughingly smiles and knows all along He was leading us to the right place at the right time ... always... even when we are sleeping He is working...He never sleeps or slumbers. Praise Jesus* our God does not take vacations ... coffee breaks or quit.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
His promises are Good; what are His promises to you?
YES WE ALL HAVE THE PROMISES OF THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD...
BUT ITS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT KNOWS YOUR INIDIVIDUAL WALK AND NEEDS ...
HE WILL LEAD YOU; KEEPING THE PROMISES SPOKEN TO YOU IN THE SECRET
PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
You and I are unique in the Lord and our promises vary as we do. WHAT A JOY TO COME TO KNOW THE TRUE LIVING GOD.
I hope you hear God speaking to you via the Holy Spirit within you. He is always speaking yes God is always speaking after your finished praying be still and listen to
what the Holy Spirit is saying to you.
TEST THE SPIRITS TO BE SURE ITS NOT ANTICHRIST SPIRIT; ATTEMPTING TO EMULATE CHRIST AND MISLEAD YOU.
ASK THE SPIRIT'' DID JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF
GOD THE FATHER COME TO EARTH IN THE FLESH YET?
If he says no not yet then you know its Antichrist and if he says yes realize the Holy Spirit will go on and on proving through the word of God who Jesus Christ is until you know that you know you are indeed being spoken to by the Holy Spirit of the Most High God.
For example the Holy Spirit will say yes Jesus Christ the only begotten son of the true living God has come to earth in the flesh born of a virgin and died on the cross that who soever believeth in Him might not perish but obtain everlasting life.
You can ask the Holy Spirit as many questions as you like to test Him and He will answer you. When you get an answer that does not comply with the written word of God then you know your not in touch with the Holy Spirit of Elohim.
-special note here...
Elohim means plural in Hebrew its the plural name
for our three in one God...
God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Elohim is also singular for [three in]; ONE GOD.
1 John 4:2-3 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Lets suit up and boot up in the Armor of God....keeping the faith in the Good Shepherd.
The LORD Is My Shepherd
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green
pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the
days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
GETTING DOWN TO... YOU LOST YOUR?
Difficult as it is.
Painful as it is.
God knows your tears.
Even still YOU AND I need to rise above all the cares of this world and especially when we LOST SOMETHING OF GREAT VALUE TO US.
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER GAVE SOMETHING HE LOVED SO DEAR...
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Matthew 27:45-50 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the and unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,
saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
JESUS SUFFERED; I RECOMMEND WE ALL WATCH THE PASSION OF HE CHRIST AGAIN. and realize
LIKEWISE WE WILL SUFFER.
Proverbs 3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:
Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Hebrews 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Lets not loose hope but increase in our faith and follow our Lord. His word tells us He is with us and will never leave us or forsake us He is with us to the end.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
When we have done ALL THAT WE POSSIBLY HUMANLY CAN DO in any given situation and we can do no more to resolve it. Then we know this is something bigger than we are this is something we need to hand fully wholly over to "Christ to handle and to resolve to get us through it because we not able...
God knows we have limitations and even through and especially through them does He lead us
onward and upward in Christ Jesus our Savior...
THAT WE ARE EVER GROWING IN HIM. TO BECOME -THE MORE THAN WE KNOW -THAT WE ARE
IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR..
IN THE END IT WONT MATTER WHAT WE LOST ON EARTH...
ALL THAT WILL MATTER IS
DID WE LOOSE OUR ETERNAL SOUL? : (
Jesus* Bless your hearts in Him
-and if your not saved; its time to call on Jesus as Lord...
Tomorrow might be too- late- too- late.
