Beloved of God,
For most of you who follow this ministry, you have seen this quote before, but I post this often so more can read it and apply it.
It is such a good quote and when we apply it by diving deeply into the things of God, we are changed and no one can understand us fully due to our depth.
I am not talking about being prideful, but au contraire’, by inspiring you to go deeper still! Deep calls to deep.
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me,” Psalm 42:7 KJV.
Yes, we are to be spiritually minded but earthly good too.
Getting lost in God is not a fearful thing or a prideful, selfish thing. But this is a lifetime commitment and personal experience with our relationship with Christ that cannot be revealed by simple words.
The things of the spirit must be spiritually revealed and discerned. God’s desire is that our entire life is laid on the mercy seat!
HE desires our attention so much and our answer to His wooing us into that intimate place with Him is that HE must increase and that WE decrease…
We are His vessels and He wants us to be full of HIM. We are living epistles, books, or letters seen and read of all men. What do we follow this day? How do we present ourselves to our world around us?
There are so many distractions coming at all of us from every angle and it will get worse. Our answer to combat this opposition is to have a personal alone prayer time and wait on The LORD to speak to you through your prayer time and by reading the Bible.
Personally, [through Facebook] people ask me to pray and wanting counsel and wanting time with me. I am sorry but I cannot answer every request, but when you ask for prayer, I do make a note and add it to my list of prayers.
There are very and many good reasons people may seek you out, to the point of your day being compromised stealing that precious time from The LORD!
The enemy will do anything to keep us from prayer and intimacy with Christ. How many of us can relate to the well-meaning people that bring distractions that come and turn our day into chaos moments?
We must learn to say NO! Even to well-meaning people with grace and gentleness.
Put God first in your day and build upon that foundation stone. Be mindful beloved that every person or even events are not all opportunities of God!
The enemy will use whomever and whatever. We must learn to practice keeping our peace and saying NO as the tongue of the learned and keep God first!
There will be close people that will be used not realizing they are doing so. There are the right ways and the wrong ways to present ourselves to others. We must practice being kind, gentle, and lowly of heart.
Just because someone knocks at your door doesn’t mean you are to open it. Just because a phone call comes in doesn’t mean you answer it.
Just because it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, or waddles like a duck doesn’t mean it’s a duck. There are decoys beloved!
The only answer to living the victorious life in these last days is diving deep into HIM in faith, prayer, and fasting. We must learn to walk in the Spirit and pray without ceasing.
We don’t have the time that our former ancestors had because the days are short and soon Jesus will split the sky and it is my prayer that we all are ready.
If we have anyone we know that we question their salvation, we need to pray for each one we know then press out to others. The fields are white ready for harvest beloved. This is my prayer for you all this day!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
