Sometimes I don’t feel God’s presence in my everyday life even if I know he is there. I pray and I just don’t feel that connection. Many times the devil uses our feelings to yank us away from God. We as Christians should always remind ourselves that we should walk by faith not by sight. We should continue praying when we don’t feel God’s presence, and we should continue working in love despite our tribulations.
Growth in our relationship with God should be our number one priority. If we aren’t growing we are dying. Growth can be a painful process. Think of a plant in a small container, as it grows it eventually burst the container because it needs more space.
When we feel the pressure and pain of life are we quick to reproach God?
The time will come for us to be pushed up against the walls of our container, a time when we will have to fight for life, to stretch beyond our barriers to get more water. The time will come for us to either choose to die in our safe space, or trust God and push ourselves beyond our limits into the unknown, in search of what he has in store for us.
Our emotions will torment us, doubt will berate us, but God will never fail us. Yesterday I was working at my desk and the text that says what is impossible with man is possible with God came to my mind. I didn’t know what chapter it was taken from I had to Google it to discover it was Luke chapter 18 verse 27. And I pondered on it for a while.
I am planning to start my own business and earlier I began to doubt myself, but you know what God is able to do all the things I cannot do. And if I am brave enough to trust him, he is faithful enough to see me through.
It should not be easier to trust our parents or spouse or loved one more than God; the creator of our universe. Take a moment to think about what that means. We hear it so often we seem to not understand. How can we ask God to do certain things for us and not believe he can do it? He made us, he made the most brilliant man and brightest star. Life was created, the universe was designed, how can we doubt him who did it all?
Faith is for those of us who are willing to be blind to logic and open to greatness.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for evidence of things not seen. God said he will use the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. God will use the weak things of this world to shame the strong; 1st Corinthians chapter 1 verse 27.
God says ask and you shall receive it, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be open onto you. If you have knocked, asked, and seek why do you doubt?
The bible says in Mathew chapter 17 verses 20, if we have faith like a mustard seed and we say to the mountain move from here to there it will move. Nothing is impossible for us.
We have power in the Lord. Let NO man tell you, you are gods, you are the creator of the universe. Let no man say to you, you are the universe becoming conscience of itself. No! No! I say this is utter and complete rubbish. You did NOT create yourself, you did NOT create the universe GOD DID. The reason we are able to design things and create other things is because we are created in the image and likeness of God. We are created with the attributes of God. We are created to crave companionship like God. God said he is a jealous God why do you think that is? Why do you think he wants us to be in heaven with him?
Our strength cometh from the Lord who made heaven and earth. The moment we start looking to ourselves to be our own savior we are domed. We are powerful in the Lord more powerful than we can ever know. If we abide in God completely we will be able to move mountains, cast our demons, raise people from the dead, but faith is lacking, our connection is wavering. We are more concern about wi fi connection.
I press towards a better, more fortified relationship with God, what about you?
I am tired of hearing some people say, the white man created the bible to lead the black astray. Open your eyes white people use the bible too. God is not a white God or Black God. The bible describes God as LOVE.
GOD IS LOVE.
Not white , black, orange, grey. NO!!!!! GOD IS LOVE. He is alpha and omega, beginning and the end.
He will end all that is against him. The bible tells us we cannot serve two masters. You are either with God or against him. We cannot allow ourselves to be lukewarm. Who like lukewarm tea?
He will spit us out of his mouth if we are lukewarm in him, not my words but his.
The reason so many people idolize celebrities is because we have an innate desire to worship God but try to satisfy our hungry for him with people like Beyoncé, vibes kartel, paul walker, etc These are mortal man. Dust of the earth.
God alone can satisfy us.
We should not try to be our own saviors but rather cast our cares upon the Lord for he cares for you. This new age nonsense says think positive, positive things happen, whatever you think you can make a reality because you have that power within you.
With God you are a child of the king all that he has is yours, without God we are nothing.
And when you falter, remember God is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
The devil is like a roaring Lion walking about seeking whom he may devour. Be on Guard! Guard your heart because everything you do flows from it.
We fall down but we will get up because we have God on our side.
If God is for me who can be against me.
I will conquer today, I will conquer tomorrow, I will conquer because I am a conqueror in Christ.
Sometimes God will tell us yes, no, and wait.
The same way it takes days, sometimes weeks for some plants to push above the soil sometimes we have to wait for God blessings. It is on its way. We must be faithful and wait.
Work without faith is dead. Faith without works is dead. We must work faithfully. And have faith in the work that we do.
May these words inspire you to live everyday as warriors in Christ.
