DAILY PORTION--FORGETTING WHAT YOU SHOULD REMEMBER



 "I Will Bless The Lord At All Times: His Praise Shall Continually Be In My Mouth. I sought The Lord, And He Heard me, And Delivered me From All my Fears. They looked unto him, And Were Lightened:
And their faces Were Not Ashamed."
  Psalm 34:1, 4, 5

God will send us "forget Me nots " to Help us To Remember!  
Have you ignored the ones He has sent to you?  Have you missed His Divinely sent opportunities to get to know Him on a higher And deeper level?  Have you missed His Divinely sent Order and Timing sent to Spiritually grow and mature through your daily living?  Have you not understood the True Mission that Jesus taught us and gave us to carry out in His Name?
Be careful, your fears and unbelief Could be keeping you from obeying Him,  And feeding your emotions May be keeping you from Praising Him at All Times, And from receiving an Increase in Spiritual Truth, Growth & Maturity in His Love.

Let me ask you this, Are you Able to honestly and truthfully Praise God In the Name of Jesus, for How He blesses others?  When another true believer shares their faith, trust, and truth about God in their life, are you able to praise Him with them, in truth and in Spirit?  

Or are you secretly jealous, wondering when yours is coming, angry that they have progressed in their Spiritual and emotional maturity in His Love for them?  Are you envious at the Spiritual gifts, anointing and Calling that God has given to them, instead of focusing on the Spiritual Gifts, Anointing and Calling that belongs to you from Him?
Are you seeking material blessings over Spiritual ones?
 
Think on these things, to see if you merely want to get out of the test, out of the refiners fire, to have the challenges removed from your life  Before they do what God has ordered them To Do for you. There Are No shortcuts in this Walk of Faith, this Journey of Truth with our Lord.

"[Inasmuch as we] refute arguments And theories And reasonings And Every Proud And Lofty thing that sets itself up against the [True] knowledge of God; And we lead Every thought And Purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),"
 2 Corinthians 10:5

See if you think that God is some genie in a bottle handing out wishes.
 If that is the case, then you will not Spiritually nor emotionally grow and mature in His Love for you. His plans, purposes and Will for you will not manifest His Spiritual and natural blessings, neither will they return to Him Honor or Glory through your life.  All things that God allows to enter into our lives, He will use to Better us with. 

Now, there are Many people who say they Love and Live for our Lord, who put themselves in situations and circumstances that God never intended for them to go through.  In the beginning of their thinking, they could have thought focused on earthly things and ways, 'oh this is good and this is going to do this and that for me'...but at some point they realized, that what they have decided to do, has put them in a Terrible place that could very well kill them physically.  
Then they cry out for God to help them. They decided to use their free will to do what they want to do, Not what God wants them to do.  They Should have gone to God in the Beginning and asked Him, " Lord is this What You want me to do Father? Are these Your plans and purposes for me Lord?" 
They do not seek to know His Will, let alone to obey His Will. They are rebellious and willful to do what they want.

 “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's Will Is—His Good, Pleasing And Perfect Will.”- Romans 12:2

If you read the verse in Psalm 34 closely you will see that the David said,
" I sought the Lord, And He Heard me, And Delivered me From All my FEARS!"
Not delivered from his troubles, not the challenges, not the testing, not the refiners fire, But his FEARS were taken away so that he could face the challenges, the troubles, and circumstances Completely through the power of the Spirit of the Lord.

There is no reason At All to Not Trust our Lord to Do what needs to be done!
When people 'get this' and remember this truth All the time, they Also, will be delivered from All their FEARS.  Especially the fear to Obey His Will, Plans and Purposes for their life.
 


I encourage you when Times of Distress and Trouble are upon you, when you Feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and irritated, you Need To Remember to Slow Down & Stop focusing on the Issues--Draw Near to Him & Praise Him! You are probably trying to do things on your own, without His Help!

If you are connected to Him Through His Spirit, Then you Have what you need--Now, Praise & Bless His Name! 
 This connection we have with Him through His Holy Spirit allows us to see and know every divinely sent Spiritual and natural opportunity and  possibility that He provides!
Search your mind & heart Till you Find Cause And Remember why you are Thankful unto Him, why you desire to please, Him, why you Love Him and receive His Love, why you live for Him and desire to serve Him, Every day, All day.  John 4:23-24

Truth Be Told, This Will not be the last time you will need His guidance and help, Nor is it the first time you have needed His Help as you face challenges, tests, and His refiners fire. So where have these fears and this unbelief come from?  How did you forget what you need to Always remember?  Where have you stepped away from following Him and staying by His side? If you are frustrated and irritated, then You are trying to do whatever by yourself, instead of with and through Him.

"Lean on, trust in, And be confident In the Lord With all your Heart And mind And Do Not rely on your own insight or understanding.  6In ALL your ways know, Recognize, And Acknowledge Him, And He Will Direct And Make Straight And Plain your Paths."  Proverbs 3:5-6
 
I remind you to focus on what you know to be His truth for your life.  Make up your mind to not allow chaos to govern your reactions and responses And Keep Peace as Your power and leader through mess.  Stay Spiritually and emotionally balanced by keeping His Peace and Joy in place to control your thoughts, words, actions and responses to people and the ways of this world.
When you allow chaos and challenges and troubles to guide you, something is wrong in your Spiritual balance, check that out and find out what and where you are off path.
Take the time, Make the time to put forth the Effort to re-establish your trust and faith in Him.  Do Not Allow fear to live in your heart, as it will always trick you and counter act your faith in God.  Stay in the safety of the presence of Jesus--Go To Him!

People, need to Stop forgetting To Remember the Truth about Him that they Already know! Praise Him! Expect Him! Trust Him by your Faith! Grow and Mature in your Spiritual and emotional lives!

He is Never Late, & has Not left you to fend for Yourself! If you are trying to do by yourself, then that is a choice that you made.
His Divine Order & Timing are At work All The Time!

If You are allowing frustrations, irritations, emotions, and the fear of the unknown to Guide you and have you focus on What You CANNOT do then you will always end up wrong, in a ditch, angry, frustrated, and unable to correct yourself.  You will be serving the enemy and the world's ways, not the Ways and Will of our Lord.
God only wants us to Focus on what we Can DO, And focus on Him Who Is More than ABLE to DO what He said He would for us! 

It's not about material stuff, but about a continual changing of our heart, mind and mouth, that Will deliver us from All of our fears, disobedience, unbelief, rebellion, arrogance, selfishness, lies, hurt, pain and anger.  Grow and Produce Much Fruit that Shall be shared with all others, and Will Be Honor and Glory to God in the name of Jesus!
 
"Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith And trust And reliance [on The Power Invested In Me] Be It Done To You; And their eyes were opened."  Matthew 9:29-30a

In the name of Jesus , Amen!
 
On feet of Faith & Peace
Joshua 1:9/ Isaiah 52 
Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Faith.
