Sometimes we have got to pull away from everything and everyone, because of the pull of this world to gain control over us.
We all have all sorts of distractions vying for our attention, and in many instances, they are important and are needed, but there are things we must do or we face consequences.
The most important part of our day is to pray and begin our day with The LORD, for if we don’t, we will find ourselves in so many situations, needs, and before you know it, we haven’t had any time with The LORD.
We must take time with God not make time!
As we become determined to keep God first every day and diligently take time, we will have The Holy Spirit leading, guiding, and directing our pathway into God’s Will.
Part of God’s purpose is that we learn how to put to death the deeds of the flesh to grow thereby.
When the WORD of The LORD came among us, He came to live and die showing us where HIS power lies. Paul knew The LORD’s Passion and understood the price he had to pay to say, “I die daily,” (1 Corinthians 15:31)
When we get off track and try to make time for God, by the end of the day we find we had no time to sit before The LORD.
Satan especially fights our quiet intimate time with our Bridegroom. He knows once we see the power and the ability of God in us, he will lose ground and we will take the spoils of victory!
Developing our quiet time with God is first! When we understand and get the revelation that what we have in us is so much greater than all of Satan’s plans because what we have in us is so powerful that Satan sends legions after legions of his demons to fight against you!
This is much like it was when Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the armies of the king to stop the Word. Beloved of God, when you carry the Word, you are accompanied by many Angels.
When God wants to speak to us, He will do it regardless of whatever circumstances we find ourselves in. (2 Kings 6:12) We serve a God who shows us the plans of the enemy, even in his own bedchamber!
The enemy knows if we ever find out just how powerful our Prayer is with God, he will know his plans are destroyed! He may have planned one purpose against you for weeks or years! Then, in one moment — it is revealed and destroyed!
Satan has lost ground with you and all the plans he had to bring destruction are thwarted. You cannot curse who God has blessed.
He knows when we find out who we are in Christ, we will be unstoppable! So beloved, the enemy is always trying to throw a wrench in our wheel.
Your tire maybe flat, but it is designed to be round and take us places, but will we pull in and receive the life source…Zoe, God’s kind of life and keep on going?
The LORD watches this world — especially our world — and He understand the fight or flight motivation we find ourselves in. Just as Jesus died to his flesh, life and purpose, so we too must die daily to our flesh and the deeds of the flesh.
I cannot say the battles cease in all cases, but I do say HE is so worth every pain and heartache we endure!
Daily learning how to walk out our lives daily as we abide closely to The LORD, is so much greater than we can ever imagine or experience in this life.
God is vast and His Kingdom beyond time. None of us have it all, but we are like parts to a vast puzzle.
As we yield to becoming “fit” for the Master’s Use, our purpose will come together with others of like heart, mind, and spirit because now instead of seeing our own part, we begin to see the other’s purpose as we connect and see the vision!
Yes, it is exciting to get glimpses of God’s vision, especially in these end times!
In this temporal life as a Christian, there are others who are watching us see what we do. But though we feel alone, we are not alone.
God sees, Angels see, demons see, and there are people who are interested in our lives, whether a brother, a friend, your dad or mom, people are watching what we practice preaching with our life styles.
Whom do we represent?
“For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin,” Romans 7:20-25 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
