Assurance

Once you are saved you do not try to live right to stay saved Jesus already took care of that,  You try to live right because you love the Lord . It is so important to stay in God’s word!

“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.
John 5:24 NLT

And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 NLT

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me,  for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand.
John 10:28-29 NLT

You have Absolute Assurance from God’s word, so there is no use to live in fear ,Rejoice in the Lord  for he has Assured us
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Philippians 1:6 NLT

My Current Situation

Well after finally going to sleep around 3:30 AM I’m up at 6:30 AM bathroom run(more like roll in my Mom’s old wheelchair) glad I kept it ! As soon as my foot hit the floor that pain shot through my body whoa it was bad! I made a mad dash for my crackers didn’t see them chips will do,whew I thank God I didn’t fall and for good medince! The word tells us

“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”
Acts 14:22
We never know what form these Hardships will take! Doing things Gods way is always best not easy,because after all Jesus had to go through Gethsemane to get to where God wanted Him (Matthew 26:36~46) So as I’m dealing with this terrible sciatica I’m learning even more about Gods faithfulness He is truly my very present help. The way God does things seem so strange to us because we love to figure things out,and surely we know that ant happening with God. Its only by faith that we learn to lean and depend on God in every situation for He has promised

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 31:8

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord .  “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9

So as we go through we have great help the promises of God for every test and trial,I am so grateful to God for His Son my great Saviour Jesus Christ ! As we go through these difficult situations and hardships they do make us strong so hang in there God is not finished with us yet, for when He is we shall come forth bright and shinning enabled to bear one anothers burdens . Thank You Lord !
Love in Christ Pat

Are You ?

Are you tired and confused ? Are you tired yet from running from one conference to another? Are you tired  of trying to prove who you are to others ?  Are you tired of running from one retreat to another ? Do you know who you are in Christ Jesus? Are you tired yet of competing with others? God did not make you to be like others He did not intend for you to try and work out your own salvation! God has prepared work for each of us so we do not have to compete with others.

Ephesians 2

We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

God in His wisdom has worked out our souls salvation through His Son Jesus Christ

Titus 3:5 ESV

He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit

However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.
John 6:37 NLT

Corinthians 4:8-10 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

We don’t need to run here and there we only need to run to God’s word for clarity and peace. God does not cause confusion!
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.
1 Corinthians 14:33 NLT

God  wants us to know and trust Him not every word that comes from man is from God

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
1 John 4:1 NLT

After you’ve ran and ran and listen to others have you changed ? It’s time for us to get quite and seek the Lord ! When you’re quite and listening you can hear from God and you can stop running

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord .
Jeremiah 29

13. If you look for me whole heartedly you will find me.

Even when we are perplexed and tired God is there and willing to help us get into God’s word and stop listening to everyone else.
More encouraging scripture
2 Cor . 5:21 2 Cir. 5:17 Colossians 2:10

For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.
1 Peter 1:23 NLT
Praise God He has made us whole through Christ Jesus.

Down in the Dumps

Even though we are faced with this “monster” depression,we are never alone,God is and will always be with us! We must keep our minds renewed in God’s word,knowing that no matter what God will bring us out. God has forewarned of these times we now live,and he said men’s hearts would fail them because of fear, and the things that’s coming upon the earth will cause much fear. But we his children have many promises to stand on,and knowing that God’s word is truth gives us much hope! The things going on and coming will bring many to “Repentance”, and that’s what they’re meant to do,as well as draw us closer to God. I give God “Praise” for his goodness and “Great Mercy”!!!! God’s power to restore us and keep us is “Awesome”! Joshua 1:9 Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t Be Afraid I Am With You.

Yes?

For many years

I walked around

with head bowed

down

low almost to the

ground.

I had no self esteem

for  the way others

treated me

But now I’ve  learned

some lessons

and I’ve learned

them well

I come from Royalty

and there is

nothing

wrong

with

being black

So now my head

is held high

For there is no

reason

For me to be shy

I am loved

And when you know

it makes

a

difference.

Yes I’m feeling much better this morning as you can probably tell,and what I had on my mind

is what I’m writing about.It’s hard living in a world full of people and you feel you’re the least

thought about! But those things don’t bother me as much as they use to,and for that I thank God!

For I know that he loves me and that alone makes me happy! The King of Kings and the Lord of Lord’s Loves Me,little old  Me,He Loves Me!!

Love in Christ  Pat

Hold On

Daniel 3

4Then the herald loudly proclaimed, ‘Nations and people’s of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5 as soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.

While the enemy is saying fall down this problem is to great,you cannot handle this! We must do as  Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego,  did,they “stood  up”,they did not bow down even though the pressure was on. Their mentor Daniel was a God-loving and God-fearing man,he was approached by the enemy  as well : Daniel

6  So these chief ministers and satraps went as a group to the king and said: ‘May King Darius live for ever! 7The royal ministers, prefects, satraps, advisors and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any god or human being during the next thirty days, except to you, Your Majesty, shall be thrown into the lions’ den.

Daniel knew what was being said he was aware of the  scheme,and yet Daniel “got down” he did not allow what the enemy said move him at all :

10Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened towards Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.

Jesus,our great and awesome Saviour,knew,He knew what was required of Him and yet He came to planet earth,“Hallelujah”!

John 19

14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon.

‘Here is your king,’ Pilate said to the Jews.15But they shouted, ‘Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!’‘Shall I crucify your king?’ Pilate asked.‘We have no king but Caesar,’ the chief priests answered.16Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.

After all Jesus went through for us,even being humiliated beyond measure,He was called the devil.Yet Jesus “hung in there” for each of us to be totally free and to have peace,joy,mercy and to be forgiven of all of our sins.

Mark 16

6‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.

He has risen from the dead! Wow! What a message,we should stand still,and wait on God,we must get down and stay in prayer and we cannot give up, Because He Lives we can and will make it through . Don’t give up because of the difficult places you’re in,Jesus is aware of where you are every moment of the day. Your needed answers are on the way,do not give up.
