The blessing of the Lord—it makes truly rich, and He adds no sorrow with it, neither does toiling increase it." Proverbs 10:22
I hope that you are enjoying the blessings of this day my friends. I pray the Holy Spirit encourages you through this message in the name of Jesus.
We all receive God's blessings whether we realize what they are or not. Those who realize what they have and who they are and who Praise our Lord- are richer for knowing.
Nothing God blesses us with brings us sorrow. They may come with some rough patches, a few bumpy places, and some details that Stretch us in areas we Need to be stretched in, but, none of His blessings bring us sorrow.
New Beginnings always come with changes, because we have to be moved into the proper places of His divine order and timing.
When we add to what He has given us thinking we can handle it alone and we don't need His input anymore, when we think we know the next steps to take without His spirit guiding us, when we have the wrong or limited perspective of what He has given us, when we try to keep people involved with our work that God is cutting away from us, when we have our expectation in ourselves, and other people instead of in Jesus. Then, any of those or other actions and thinking by us (not God) Will add sorrow to the Blessings we have been given.
When we allow sorrow to be added in, the Blessings are altered, they are perverted, they are stunted, stale, dry, and stagnant. Oh yes, they will produce "something", but not What God intended for them to Produce. So therefore, we are not receiving the fullness of His Blessings, we receive what we created, which will always be less, shallow, self serving, and will not help any others along the way.
Glory shall not be given to God in the name of Jesus when we receive what only we can accomplish by our human ways.
You have to ask yourself every day, Whose outcome do I want? God's or mine? If you are determined to do things your way based on your emotions, ego, pride, fears and doubt, you will always receive less and accomplish a mess, you will never be able to Help others, and you will probably always be frustrated, irritated and falling through the gaps.
We have to Examine our motives Every day concerning each and every thing, small or large.
Learning how to calmly, confidently and boldly face the temptations that come at us every day will increase our confidence in our ability to discern, recognize and resist the lies of our enemy every time we are faced with his deceptive whispers.
Remember, first the enemy deceives then he manipulates. His purpose is to make us not trust in the Lord, to make us not put our expectation in the Lord, to make us lean on our own thinking, and ways. He will come through others when he can't get into your head. Others at your job, in your family, strangers, who ever is open to his authority, he will use with the sole purpose of stopping God's will in, for and through us.
It's not about you, or me, it's about satans sole purpose and God's will.
We need to remember on purpose, to Pray these troubles, difficulties and temptations Up to God in the name of Jesus, as they are opportunities to do so.
Doing so, will turn us around and enable us to see as God reveals to us what we need to do concerning them all.
If we keep them hemmed in, thinking them over trying to find a way to make them all work out for our good on our own, then we shall fall into the gaps they create.
See them for what they truly are, opportunities for us to give them to our Lord to take care of. He already Has a solution for every trouble, difficulty, issue and set of circumstances that shall ever face us. We need to remember this truth and turn to Him so that we see and receive His Ways Made Through!
If you are doing the Will of God, Of Course satan is going come after you! Of Course he is going to attack you every chance he gets. You are walking by faith and trust, praising God, expecting God, learning what Jesus said and doing what He told us to do, you are freeing people from evil strongholds, feeding people, blessing people, encouraging them, helping to Push Back The Darkness in other lives and in your own life as well.
Of Course satan is coming after you. Let me give you a reminder to alter your perspective.... life's difficulties and troubles are intended to stop us and make us doubt and fear. God turns everything meant for bad into Good for us--to Help us accomplish His will for each day.
So, no matter what the impossibilities, troubles and difficulties are that we face, God has turned them all around and given them a Way to Increase our speed. As long as we remember to see them from a higher perspective and call on the forces of the power of His love, His wisdom, His truth, and put them into action, we will Roll right over these dark troubles as our light shines forth.
Whatever they are, we must overcome them and not be fooled into thinking they have power over us. They are sent to make us pervert the Blessings. To make us leave His leading, to make us think we are wasting our time. Don't leave the purpose that God has put you here to do!
I remind you to Put all your focus on the Lord, stay in the flow of His spirit and His spirit Will reveal to you the Strength of your faith. Making a conscious effort to put and Keep your Trust in Jesus as He leads us through the chaos, the smoke and mirrors, the transitions, the changes and the difficult and challenging times.
Keep seeking His face and sit with Him to be renewed through devotion and dedication to His Kingdom purposes you have been put here to accomplish.
With all the spiritual shifting that is going on we have to stay focused on Jesus, we have to sit with the Lord More than less, we have to stay diligent and strong allowing Him to be our strength, to be humbled and speak out to Him, "LORD I cannot do this alone, I cannot do this without YOU!"
He has established us in a Growing and Maturing Faith and Trust, He is our Very Present Help in times of trouble.
What ever God has you doing seek His ways concerning EVERY detail, Every decision, no matter how small you think it is--it is VERY Important for you to accomplish His will for today.
Don't rush His process, don't try to change His order and timing, Push your emotions, fears and doubt Down under the Power and Authority of His Holy Indwelling Spirit.
He allows Pressure to lay on us so that we will See and Know what we are really made of. So that we will be aware of all the closed doors to Him in our heart, so that we will Open those closed doors in our hearts to Him. Pressure aligns us with His will where we are out of line.
We all speak out, "Lord, Open all the doors I need to go through, IJN, Amen!"
Well, have you ever thought that Many of those doors that are closed are within our own hearts?
He has to open us up First, before the Way in the natural is Opened up for us to go through!
Conquer the small difficulties so that they do not become large troubles later on down the road.
There is No Failure with Him, therefore, as long as we stay in His presence, stay in His Love, stay in His Power, we shall not fail. The minute we add in our own thoughts, actions and "good ideas" we Will Bring Sorrow to His Blessings.
I speak Encouragement to you-I Pray in the name of Jesus that you Be Opened! EPHPHATHA!!
I ask the Lord's Spirit to reveal to you all the closed doors in your heart toward Him and then to Open them and allow Him to flow into those areas that are Really meant for Him in the first place.
In the name of Jesus, I Pray the Lord remove the scales from your eyes and ears so that you may See and Hear, I Pray that you recognize He has given us the Grace to Trust Him More, I Pray that you Ask Him to Help you with your unbelief, I Pray that You Be Opened in the places of your heart that are closed to our Lord, and I Pray that you add no sorrow to the Blessings of the Lord that He has given to you. May these words be More than words in our Lives, All Glory be to God in the name of Jesus!
I love you and I need you-we need each other! So Be It!
"Now Unto Him that Is Able to Keep You from falling, And to Present You Faultless Before the Presence of His Glory With Exceeding JOY..."
"This poor person cried, And the Lord Heard, and Saved this person out of all of their troubles!" Psalm 34:6
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling." Selah
On feet of Faith & Peace-Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Radical Faith.
