"But Jesus [for His part] did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all [men]. And He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning man [needed no evidence from anyone about men], for He Himself knew what was in the human nature. [He could read men's hearts.]" [Ref. 1 Sam. 16:7]
John 2:24-25

Greetings to you my sisters and brothers in the name of Jesus I come to you with some more of His love for us all! Amen.
Isn't it a beautiful day today? The seasons have changed and Autumn is here.

I come to ask you is there Anybody else GLAD to know that Jesus LOVES them?!

What do we put our trust in? Who do we put our trust in? How do we see our lives?
Jesus came and spoke all the knowledge, understanding, wisdom and truth concerning all these questions that many of us deal with. If you are not seeking the answers to these questions then you should be.

Thank You Holy Spirit for Your guidance, correction, and teaching of our hearts as we call upon and rely upon Your strength to see us through, In Jesus name, we thank You, Amen.

Let us start here looking into these questions and some answers that will help us continue our Walk of Love In Truth.
John 2:18-25

Jesus knew that we are of human bodies and therefore full of imperfections. He did not fall to pieces when His disciples disappointed Him--He was not devastated because He already knew and understood human nature.
Yes Jesus expected His disciples to do their best--but He knew that even their best would still be imperfect.

Let me stick a pin right there so I can ask you this; Do you know and accept that you are human and that your best will still be full of imperfections? Do you accept this truth about all other people that are in your life or come through your life also?

I ask you these questions so that you will examine your thoughts, your ways, and your hearts to search out the lies that we tell ourselves and then proceed to live in. There is a lack within you if you are telling yourself that you are perfect and that you expect everyone around you to be perfect also. That is the lack that needs to be brought to the Altar and given to God to be repaired. That type of thinking is part of our being imperfect.

In John 2:18-25, we are told that the people were amazed and full of disbelief at the same time as they listened to Jesus tell them to destroy this Temple and He would raise it back up in three days. This was His response to some Jews who sought to trap Him through their words. They wanted to know by what sign would Jesus show them –by what Authority-by what evidence did Jesus say what He said.

When Jesus told them He would restore the Temple in three days they were in darkness for He was speaking “of the Temple which Was His Body.”
Even though Jesus knew that at the Passover Feast many believed in His name-that they identified themselves with His Party; He knew because they were witness to His signs, wonders and miracles-The Word goes on to say “that Jesus, for His part did not trust Himself to them because He knew all men.” (vs24).

Here is the Divineness of Truth in verse 25; “And He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning man…for He could read the hearts of men.”

My sisters and brothers I urge you to expect good things to happen in your life. I also encourage you to be bottom-line realistic in all things. You should realize and accept that unpleasant situations and people who are disagreeable will always be put on our paths to encounter and experience.

Your enjoyment of this life relies on your attitude while within these trying and pressing situations. When you determine and purpose yourself to walk in love with truth, having a positive outlook that is fueled by what lives in your heart, Then God is Able, in your life.

Seeing all people, starting with yourself as they realistically are—you will deal with your own imperfections and those of other people around you with mercy and grace.
Living a life with unrealistic expectations of yourself and from others will always lead you to the valley or the mountaintop of complete disappointment. Then you will begin to listen to your emotions as most times our feeling get hurt. And from there, anger and feelings will start to try and govern your re-actions and actions.

Do not set yourself and others up for failure by putting your trust and faith in human imperfection. Seek the perfection of Jesus and His Holy Spirit will correct and change the situations to work themselves out for your good. And for the good of everyone involved if they are seeking the Lord’s Way.

Now, I am not saying that we should not expect the best out of people—I’m saying we must remember that we are all human beings with imperfections, so therefore we must remain mindful of our limits and of God’s way with impossibilities.

I must confess that I am so pleased and full of zeal to have learned this wisdom and truth from the teaching of His Holy Spirit. It has taken such a burden off my neck—it was a yoke that was not meant for me to carry—not meant for any of us to carry around. My Dear Lord I thank You Jesus for loving me through Your Holy Spirit—Yes Lord, I Am An Active Listener!

I have come to know and have accepted that as long as we are in these earthen bodies we will manifest imperfections. God knew this to be true so He gave us instructions in His Word on how to deal with people who seem to just get on our every nerve. He sent guidlines and law on how to act with in those terrible pressing places that certain situations throw at us. For the good of God to step in and correct the thing-this will the faith of a mustard seed bring forth. Active Faith.

Let me ask you this, Are you looking for that perfect job, that perfect church, that perfect spouse or life partner; are you looking for that perfect house and neighborhood , that perfect friend? In truth none of that even exist! This is how we set ourselves and others up to be disappointed and fail in reaching a completion that is positive and permanent.

This is why Jesus tells us over and over To Not put our trust in-do not lean on-rely on, adhere to OR expect from= things of the world and in people. God has repeated this same direction over and over throughout the Bible. See, He has given us instructions to follow, but so many will not walk the way through the narrow gate. They follow their flesh and their emotions toward a deeper darkness.

Is There Anybody Else Glad to Know That Yes, Jesus Loves them?!
People are not perfect because God did not create us to be perfect. I have learned to be full of and generous with His mercy and grace when dealing with people. I want to sow seeds of mercy and grace because I don’t know when I may need some for myself. amen.
When you expect people or yourself to be flawless you will always be disappointed.

We all hope that within the plans for our days and life that others will cooperate with us in achieving a positive completion. We want our situations to work out-and some of us want them to go exactly as planned. But from our past experiences we should all have learned that expectation is not worthy to hold if we are relying on people to accomplish things. The truth is that rarely happens.

We are Believers and we have this Power of The Holy Spirit to help us do all difficult and impossible things. The Holy Spirit steps into the many places of human imperfections by way of Active Faith. This is to know that we are not in charge of anything and that Only God can take imperfection and bring forth good fruit from it for His glory.

Be like Jacob, Hold on to God’s Word till If fills you with His understanding, His wisdom and His knowledge of all His Word means. Hold on to IT till you reap the harvest of the results of Being Blessed.
If you have Relationship with God through Jesus—then you are already Blessed. As the relationship IS The Blessing. Now go to Father as see what He brings to your life through your relationship with Him in the name of Jesus—ask for the results of this Blessing.

Remember= ”However we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to Be FROM God and NOT From ourselves.”
2 Cor. 4:7-13

and Col. 1:9-14

With Love till we meet again-Glory Be To God The Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, amen.
