Listening

Listening to Líes let’s Stop It! It does not matter who’s preaching or teaching everything they say is not for us we must use Discernment so that when we face difficult trials we can stand and keep trusting God.Sometimes the words we hear sound good and right but if it’s not the truth then it’s not for us ,getting into God’s word and memorizing scripture is so very important His word is what we must listen to at all times

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Romans 12:2 – And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

NKJV

Proverbs 18:15

The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

NKJV

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Colossians 2:8-10 – NKJV

1 Timothy 4:1

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,

NKJV

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

Be Still

Usually we only quote and share Jeremiah 29:11 but I want to call your attention to Jeremiah 29:1~10 God is encouraging his people to settle down let your sons and daughters get married build your homes plant your gardens work for the peace and prosperity of the city,  In other words get comfortable for  you will be here for awhile! In the midst of our hard places we want out as soon as possible but God’s timing is so different from ours. God also told them to pray and so should we  while waiting on God’s time to be fulfilled, it’s so hard to be still while waiting on God we feel we must be doing something but most of the time what we do is make a mess!

We also feel like God has forgotten us but that is never going to happen He loves us to much! For then comes the reassuring promise of Jeremiah 29:11

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes His plans for us are greater than what we’re going through right now so be still and let God do what He has planned the end results will be wonderful.

God Is Able

Sometimes- most times as we read the word of God we see our brothers as giants of faith who stand tall and always walk the straight and narrow. But we need to take a closer look and we can see ourselves weak,frail and trembling at times in their walk with the Lord. Our brothers of old did also have periods of fear and doubt the same as we do but we must also see that the same Great God that kept them keeps us! And the same Great God that worked through them is working through us and the same Great God that brought them through time and time again will always bring us through every difficult test and trial. God is able at all times to care for us in the midst of our fears and doubts He always has a way out.

Scripture 1 Corinthians 2:3

But with the demonstration of the Spirits power

1 Samuel 16:2 Afraid to go to Jesse’s house really after all God has brought you through,but we find ourselves there at times

2 Chronicles 20:3 ,15 Jehoshaphat was terrified! But God came through
