The door that is waiting for a knock

Matthew 7:8 “For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

God is waiting for you to knock on his door, he’s waiting for you to ask him for his help as he knows that without his spirit we are just flesh and with flesh comes death, but with his spirit comes life!

If we ask God to fill us with his spirit through Jesus then we are no longer of just flesh but we have become the spirit. We have asked for just help but we have received much more, we have received life. I pray today that God fills us with his spirit so that we are filled with the truth. When we have become new through the spirit the truth will flow through us like a river and sin will flee from our hearts. Lets not ask God for what we want but lets ask God for him, lets seek the truth, and the door to new life will be opened to us! The more truth we have the stronger our faith is, lets pray for the truth and the strength of our faith will become cemented in our hearts where no matter what we face we will have God at the front of our heart and minds and we will be filled with the spirit.

I hope everyone is having a blessed day and i’m so humbled by the people stopping by my blog to read the word! We are truly blessed and for that i’m forever grateful.

The new you

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

What if someone told you that no matter how much bad you’ve done or how many times you’ve done it that you can be forgiven and have all that bad erased, sounds like a good deal right? Well that is what God is offering us, if we truly accept that Jesus is the son of God and that he was sent as our savior then we can truly ask for forgiveness and it will be given! Not only will we be forgiven for our sins but we will be loved as if we were perfect and our hearts will be forever filled with the mercy of God.

Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh”

God doesn’t want us to start our lives over he wants us to become new at heart and spirit through Jesus and use the rest of our lives to be the light of the world showing others how great our God is. We can change at anytime we can throw the old us away and make room for a future of a God driven person with a heart full of love and a mind full of faith. God has put the offer for a new you on the table 2000 years ago and has not and will never take the offer back and for that we can be forever grateful. Seek God out of desire to live with him and all that he has blessed us with. Do not seek him out of obligation because he will see the weak faith you have in him, but pray for the truth and that truth will set you free of the temptation to live for idol gods and will bring you closer to the one and only God. The new us will be revealed as we are filled with the love and grace of God. The more we trust in Gods plan for us the easier time we have ridding sin from our hearts and minds. Do not dwell on the past because everything that happened was Gods plan and if we trust his plan then we know that all things were for a reason and with that allow the new you to focus on your future WITH God instead of your past without! The new you wont have a different name or a different physical look, but the new you will have a renewed heart, a new spirit filled with Gods holiness and a mind full of thoughts about loving others as God has loved us.As a follower of God we should love not only friends and family but we should love strangers just as much because they too are children of God. Not only will you notice the new you but Gods word will be spoken loudly in your faith driven actions, you wont have to say a word and yet people will see Gods love pouring from your heart. Once you have allowed God to fill you with the truth you have all the weapons you need to fight the sin that fills our hearts. The truth will set you free and once you find Jesus you have found the truth!

Our God is truly amazing all his actions and words through Jesus have been in our favor, his love for us is so great that he would do anything for us and once you have become new through Christ then will you live to give God glory through all your actions. The old you will never be satisfied but the new you will forever be satisfied through Jesus knowing that if all we have is God then we have all we need!

I hope everyone enjoys reading the word as much as I enjoy spreading the word and I know the new me thanks God everyday for allowing myself to become new through his son for that ill be forever humbled as I know I am just ordinary but our God is unequalled.

God bless.

The medicine for suffering and pain

Romans 8:18  “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”

1 Peter 5:9-10   “Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace,who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”

This topic is so close to everyones heart and and for so many suffering has impacted our lives greatly. This first thing we must do as children of God is know that suffering is going to happen no matter who we are. I think Charles Spurgeon said it best “Jesus does not suffer so as to exclude your suffering. He bears a cross, not that you may escape it, but that you may endure it. Christ exempts you from sin, but not from sorrow. Remember that, and expect to suffer.” (Spurgeon ME192). Jesus was the son of God and he is the only person to walk this earth as a perfect follower of God and yet he still suffered so we as people with sin in our hearts can only expect to suffer too. Theres good news though and that is that no matter how painful your suffering is and how long you suffer God has promised that the glory of eternal life is no comparison to any suffering we will go through. How amazing is that, knowing that no matter what we go through and how much we suffer that God will not only forgive us for our sins but He will let us live in Heaven with him FOREVER without pain and suffering. How short does the pain and suffering seem in comparison to a forever of love, grace, compassion, forgiveness and a sin free heart. If you put the two in comparison knowing that God has never left your side even in your darkest hours and having full faith in God then through all your pain and suffering you can have a full heart knowing that the compassion and love that you will receive will be greater then you could ever imagine.

Can you figure out what the medicine for suffering and pain is yet? Well the answer is God, he is the medicine. Have full faith in Gods plan know that he is guiding your steps and he sees the bumps in the road too. He’s not only going to help you through the pain but he is going to use that to bring you closer to him. Behind every moment there is a reason, good or bad and only God knows his reason but what we can do is trust and use his guidance and allow him to use our stories to give him Glory and show how amazing his love for us truly is. I always tell people without our bad days we would never appreciate the good ones. That goes for God as well, if we were never tempted to sin or if we were never hurting then we could never truly appreciate Gods love for us. He’s here for us at all times and no matter how long our list of sins is once we give ourselves to God and ask for forgiveness then he takes us back like we never did anything wrong. How awesome is our God that through him all things are possible and that he will love us as he made us and not for what others want us to be. There is nothing here on earth that can truly heal us of our pain but there are only temporary fixes. God is not only are longtime fix but he is our forever fix. Think of it this way, if someone told you that if you went 3 days without eating or drinking you would win a million dollars a lot of people would atleast attempt it. Not eating or drinking for 3 days would be very hard to do but with the million dollars in our future they would do everything they could to do it. Most people would make there bodies suffer for the temporary money because it would greatly benefit them temporarily. That is where most people go wrong, trying to cure pain with temporary worldy medicine when Gods promise is one that is not temporary but everlasting. What God has promised us is that if we have 100% faith in Him through our life’s suffering that we can live forever with him in Heaven and our joy and happiness will be far greater with no comparison to the pain and suffering we endured in our life on earth. If we keep this eternal life in our future sights then we can know that everything is gonna be okay and If we can allow others to see that through our own pain that God has loved us endlessly they too can find God and see the light that will never go dim in any type of darkness. Allow ourselves to use scripture to comfort us and others in times of need, Gods word is never far and it is always uplifting.

James 1:2-4 “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

Allow the testing of your faith to strengthen it and bring you closer to God, what you may think of as bad experiences can sometimes be Gods best teachings. In all times give God glory and pray that he guides you in his path and not your own. If you put your faith in God then you can know that you will forever be in the gracious hands of the creator of all things. God is not great sometimes , God is great at ALL times. I am forever grateful knowing that through all mistakes with God I can be forgiven and loved as much as ill ever need! When you “think” no one is there for you that is when you can KNOW that is God is there for you.

Im truly blessed to be able to spread the word and I truly appreciate the people who take the time to read my posts. Once again I give all the glory to God and I hope that you can see that He is the answer to all questions!

Have a blessed day!

Living Gods plan

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

Jeremiah 29:13 “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (KJV)

Isaiah 58:11 “The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong, and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.” (NIV)

Let me start by asking you this, If your in a relationship with someone and you only give 25% or even 75% is it gonna work? Well i can tell you that its not gonna work because the other person is going to be giving 100% because they love you that much and expect you to love them just as much then they are only gonna accept 100%. Thats how our relationship with God needs to be, If we want to truly live in the Gods Kingdom we must fully give ourself’s to our creator. We cant just trust God when everything is going good, but proving our faith in God when everything isn’t going as well for us is just as important. God gives us way more then we deserve, I mean who else do you know that would allow us to go against them for so long and yet when we give everything to God he shows us what true love is. You cant just go to church on sunday and just praise him for that hour and assume thats what it takes to have eternal life with God, and you cant just involve christ in some acitivites. You MUST do all things with a christ driven attitude having full faith in Gods work. You cannot claim you love God yet your actions speak otherwise because other people may not see but our all-knowning God not only sees that he sees everything including the thoughts in our minds and the feelings in our hearts. Never have I seen in the bible where Jesus has asked his followers to give God only some of their heart and only have faith sometimes, but everywhere I have seen the word “all” and don’t take that word lightly because it has a very simple meaning and if ALL is given to God then our vision is no longer blurry but it is revealing to a new life. How can we expect to live Gods plan for us if we cannot truly have faith in him. Sometimes our faith is so weak because we have faith in the wrong things. If your faith has been wavered through a struggle then maybe what God is trying to show you is that you have faith in the wrong things. What God wants you to know that is if you have 100% faith in him and nothing less then your faith will never weaken and will only become stronger through anything. We must stop living for ourselves and must start living with God, if we live for ourselves then we have put ourselves above are creator. God can only give you the fruits of the earth once we have truly allowed ourselves to live with God. There will never be a greater love shown then by God to his children and for that we must give all the glory to God not just now not just tomorrow but every second we have because without him none of this is possible! In all of our lives we search for something more and once we find it we again search for something more, but let me tell you once we have found God and are giving him 100% of everything we have then is the search truly over and we can forever live knowing that our lives are in the hands of our God our creator our savior and that is the only hands our lives should be in!

Last but not least i’d like to thank God for all the blessings I’ve received theres nothing more amazing then being able to spread the word of how amazing Gods love for us is. All the glory goes to God.

Thank you brothers and sisters in christ have a blessed day.

The mercy of God

Titus 3:5 “He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the holy spirt”

 

First of all thank you God for sending Jesus to die for us so that we could be saved. We are all sinners and without your mercy we could not have been saved. The ability to be able to repent for our sins is truly a great blessing, the true love shown by God is a pure love one that is only given by our creator. Without Jesus dying for our sins and renewing us through the holy spirit we would live a life of sin with out a way to repent. This is the greatest story i’ve ever heard, people my age wonder why i’m in love with Jesus and i ask, how could I not be when He gave up his life so that I could be saved and live forever in Heaven. In all our daily tasks as we face obstacles of sin and temptation think of Jesus on the cross suffering so that we could live free without the shackles of sin. Allow your choices to be made with faith that God will forever be at your side and with his plan we cannot fail. Give all your glory to God knowing that He loves you more than you could ever imagine.

Have a blessed day
