CHOCOLATE FOR YOUR SOUL WITH SHERI ROSE SHEPHERD – TUESDAY, JUNE 9, 2020

Embracing Discomfort
by Sheri Rose ShepherdAnd he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega–the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. — Revelation 21:6

King David was a mighty warrior of the faith, but His biggest battle was inside himself as he fought to understand why God would chose him. Why did God choose him then leave him in a cave? This future king was torn from the many comforts he was accustomed to, and forced to hide-out in caves to protect his life. I’m sure David must have wondered, Is God’s will for my life really worth fighting for?” The answer is Yes!

King David did not ask God to become a leader of the faith, but he said yes to the call to fight to further God’s Kingdom. It took sixteen years of “spiritual boot camp,” personal battles and great sacrifices to prepare David to lead God’s people. David did not allow the battles to make him bitter, instead He transferred his painful preparation time into prayers and cried out to God in writing. Today those pain-filled prayers found in the book of Psalms show us how to find God in our own personal battles. His calling was not easy but his life was full of adventure and his faith still lives on in our hearts today.

Mary could have missed her moment to fight if she had feared what others—including her fiancé, Joseph, would think. Mary did not choose to be the birth mother of Jesus. She had to take a step of faith and embrace the battles that came with her calling to receive the blessing of being used to bring heaven to earth. Many times we have to lay down our dreams for divine destiny.

I know it is hard to see yourself as a David or a Mary, but they are no different then you and me. They were imperfect people who stepped out on the battlefield, and trusted God by surrendering their wants to God’s will for their lives. They lost their lives and gained a legacy of faith. They fought to walk the narrow road, trusting our God to guide them all the way home to Heaven.

This is your time to turn pain into passion and move onto the battlefield to finish what you were sent here to do. Nothing and no one can cancel out the call of God on your life. He as anointed and appointed you for such a time as this. Your God can use all that you have walked through to prepare you for victory on the battlefield. Don’t ever give up your fight because life is hard. This is your moment to bring a taste of heaven to earth. Don’t miss it!

God’s Letter to You

I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this….

My Princess Warrior,

I have created a time for every season of life and right now it is time to dress in my soul armor because you are more than my daughter, you are My “Princess Warrior.” I know this life can take you through times when you feel as if there is no fight left inside of you. But My Spirit will rise up inside your soul and My strength will become your strength. My mighty armor will guard your heart from the fiery arrows of the enemy. In the power of my holy spirit you will find the passion and power to step out in faith and face any spiritual giant that comes against you. Your battles won for my Kingdom will become a blessing to all generations!

Love,
Your King Who Fights For You

Then What’s Next To Do?

Then What’s Next To Do?

By Oswald Chambers

Ask if you have not received. There is nothing more difficult than asking. We will have yearnings and desires for certain things, and even suffer as a result of their going unfulfilled, but not until we are at the limit of desperation will we ask. It is the sense of not being spiritually real that causes us to ask. Have you ever asked out of the depths of your total insufficiency and poverty? “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God…” (James 1:5), but be sure that you do lack wisdom before you ask. You cannot bring yourself to the point of spiritual reality anytime you choose. The best thing to do, once you realize you are not spiritually real, is to ask God for the Holy Spirit, basing your request on the promise of Jesus Christ (see Luke 11:13). The Holy Spirit is the one who makes everything that Jesus did for you real in your life.

“Everyone who asks receives….” This does not mean that you will not get if you do not ask, but it means that until you come to the point of asking, you will not receive from God (seeMatthew 5:45). To be able to receive means that you have to come into the relationship of a child of God, and then you comprehend and appreciate mentally, morally, and with spiritual understanding, that these things come from God.

“If any of you lacks wisdom….” If you realize that you are lacking, it is because you have come in contact with spiritual reality— do not put the blinders of reason on again. The word ask actually means “beg.” Some people are poor enough to be interested in their poverty, and some of us are poor enough spiritually to show our interest. Yet we will never receive if we ask with a certain result in mind, because we are asking out of our lust, not out of our poverty. A pauper does not ask out of any reason other than the completely hopeless and painful condition of his poverty. He is not ashamed to beg— blessed are the paupers in spirit (see Matthew 5:3).

WISDOM FROM OSWALD CHAMBERS

We should always choose our books as God chooses our friends, just a bit beyond us, so that we have to do our level best to keep up with them. Shade of His Hand, 1216 L
