DISCLAIMER, AGAIN, JUST TO BE CLEAR

 

MY DEAR BLOGGER FRIENDS,

THERE ARE 2 THINGS I NEED TO MAKE CLEAR AGAIN.

FIRST POINT, NOT EVERYTHING I POST IS WHAT I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN, ALSO, THE POSTS THAT ARE MINE, ARE SIGNED AS,  LATER, PAT, CHILD OF GOD.

SECOND POINT, SOME OF WHAT I POST IS CONTROVENTIONAL SO I JUST WANT TO PRESENT DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW TO  YOU SOMETIMES. OUR MIND CONNECTED  WITH OUR HEARTS AND SOUL WILL BE STIMULATED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SEE THE TRUE. AS WE READ THE BIBLE AND LEARN MORE ABOUT JESUS, WE WILL BE ALE TO DISCERN MORE BUT, MOST OF MY POSTS ARE FOR UPLIFTING ALL WHO READ AND HOPE THEY WILL TURN TO JESUS SOON. I LOVE YOU ALL AND I MEAN IT. I AM HERE FOR ANYONE THAT NEEDS PRAYERS OR TO TALK. YOU CAN EMAIL ME IF YOU WANT TO BE ANONYMOUS.

P.S. I sign all my personal posts the rest is my research

BE BLESSED,

LATER,

PAT,

CHILD OF GOD

TODAY’S VERSE

If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

I guess for those who find themselves in places they shouldn’t be, the abiding presence of God might be a bit terrifying. But I find great comfort in knowing that no matter where I go, from the moment of my conception to the day of my death, God is always there. He is there to guide me and sustain me. Even when I’m in places I am not supposed to be, doing things I am not supposed to do, he is still there. I can turn to him in repentance and receive his grace. I can turn to him in need and receive his strength. I can turn to him and know I am not alone.

My Prayer…

Thank you, Father, for loving me and personally knowing me. Thank you for the assurance that I won’t have to face a day without you. Thank you for the comfort of knowing that I will never face my sorrows alone. Thank you for being the strength that sustains me when I don’t have the strength to go on. Thank you that when tomorrow dawns, I will be with you no matter what happens during the night. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

God’s Holy Fire: ‘Dancing with the Spirit’

Saturday, November 17, 2019

[Jesus] is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.

Key Thought

Paul’s ministry was powered by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit was the energy that so forcefully worked in Paul. And this Spirit-energy propelled Paul to work for people to achieve the goal that the Holy Spirit has for all of us who follow Jesus — for us to become fully mature in Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18). Can anything be clearer? God’s will for us is to be conformed, transformed, and matured into the current-day presence of Jesus Christ in our world. That is the mission of the Holy Spirit in us, and that is our mission in the lives of others. While there are many mysteries about how the Holy Spirit works and what all the Spirit does, there is one thing for certain: The Spirit is at work within us to accomplish this goal. Let’s commit to being a part of this divine partnership, both in our own lives and in the lives of others!

Today’s Prayer

Almighty God, thank you for the Holy Spirit’s presence within me. I openly submit my heart to have it formed and shaped to reflect the heart of Jesus. I want the character and compassion of my Lord to come to life in me. I want my life to be used as your influence on others, empowered by the Holy Spirit to help them come to maturity in Jesus. I choose, dear Father, to dance with the Spirit and let the Spirit lead me in this mission to see Jesus formed in me and in those you have chosen for my life to influence. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

What are you afraid of?

If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with. — L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Blessed people are not immune to the lie. Adam and Eve had everything they needed, and they still fell for the lie. Below are some things that were given to the first couple that the rest of us spend a lifetime pursuing:

  • An intimate, conversational relationship with God
  • A great lot—prime real estate, if you know what I mean
  • Abundant resources—including a river that coursed through the land of Havilah, where there were gold, precious stones, and aromatics
  • A calling and a purpose, as they were commissioned to tend the garden
  • Protection and boundaries
  • Companionship and physical intimacy

Adam and Eve were blessed. Yet they still believed the lie.

In fact, in my personal experience, blessed people are more prone to fall for the lie than those who aren’t so blessed.

[The serpent] said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” … God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:15)

So what was the lie?

To the woman who had everything and the man who was standing alongside her, the serpent told the lie, “You’re missing out. You think you have it all, but you don’t. In fact, what you do have isn’t enough. What you’re missing out on is so valuable, it’s worth the price you’ll pay in order to have it.”

The cost was great. In fact, the debt that came with that tree and that fruit is still being paid today.

There’s an acronym used on social media—FOMO, or “fear of missing out.” What are you afraid you’re missing? Are you really missing out, or are you buying into the lie?

It’s worth asking because in our society, the fear of missing out can be really expensive.

Jesus, by global standards, I am rich—with more worldly wealth than I understand. Yet, I still feel like I’m missing out. I’m blessed, but I’m still so vulnerable to the lie. I know Your Spirit is a spirit of truth and that in You, I have everything and miss out on nothing. Today, I choose to follow truth into freedom. Amen.
