ARE YOU STRUGGLING?

4 So, my dear brothers and sisters, this is the point: You died to the power of the law when you died with Christ. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead. As a result, we can produce a harvest of good deeds for God. 5 When we were controlled by our old nature,[b] sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit.( Romans 7)

There are so many unsatisfied Christians and most of the time it’s because you’re still trying to live by the letter of the law,which brings bondage.Jesus has set us free from that because he knew we could not  keep the letter of the law. So this new way of living sets us free and that is living in the Spirit. By trusting God to bring about the changes we need in our lives,because we cannot do it alone. This new way of living is depending totally on Jesus Christ and the finished work he has done for us,through faith alone. The Saints before us could not do it either,that’s why God cut a new covenant through his awesome Son Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 8:6 But our High Priest has been given a ministry that is far superior to the ministry  of those who serve under the old laws,for he is the one who guarantees for us a better covenant with God,based on better promises. If the first covenant had been faultless,there would be no need for a second covenant to replace it.

Jesus has made a better way and as we yield to him our fruit will start to show up on the outside,so there is no need to struggle or faint trying to keep the law. Your High Priest in you takes up your slack and he will definitely bring about the changes in us,”Hallelujah”.God was aware of all that’s wrong with us when he chose us and he is more than able to help us now( Romans 8:29 )For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sister’s.

.Great is his faithfulness!

Hebrews 9 really helps you understand your freedom in Christ.

God is In Control

Genesis 7

17 For forty days the floodwaters grew deeper, covering the ground and lifting the boat high above the earth. 18 As the waters rose higher and higher above the ground, the boat floated safely on the surface. 19 Finally, the water covered even the highest mountains on the earth, 20 rising more than twenty-two feet above the highest peaks. 21 All the living things on earth died—birds, domestic animals, wild animals, small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the people. 22 Everything that breathed and lived on dry land died. 23 God wiped out every living thing on the earth—people, livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and the birds of the sky. All were destroyed. The only people who survived were Noah and those with him in the boat.

Oh yes God is awesome and in total control now just as He was in Noah’s day,God is setting the stage for the next “great event” he has planned,the return  of  His  Son. Many don’t understand the conditions going on in our world now.God’s word has all of the answers we need today,we need to humble ourselves before Almighty God and repent. For Jesus Christ is coming soon and I pray that you are ready to meet him in the air,or you could leave by way of the grave still I pray you’re ready.

2 Timothy 4

1 I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when he appears to set up his Kingdom: 2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.

Fear of God has great purpose it’s what got me to Jesus and I am so grateful.

Can You Trust Me When?

1. You’ve fasted and prayed more times than you can count,and no changes,seen.

2. When your children keep saying dad I need this,dad I need that.I used small d’s ,because you can’t even take care of your family.And you feel like dad instead of “Dad the provider”.

3. You’ve tried and tried to eat less and exercise,but it’s not working,it is not working at all!

4. Your wife has made the suggestion to go out and sell her body,and she keeps pressing and pressing you for a yes.

5. Your children are sick and we’ve prayed and prayed for healing,because there is no insurance,still no changes.

6. The terrible pain in your body is going from bad to worse,no matter how much you pray.

7. When you’re tired,so very tired of trying to do the right thing,when it seems as if God is hiding.

Can You Trust Me When?

8. You’ve enjoyed being delivered from that strong drink,but now you’re thinking more and more of going back.

9. You’ve been out of work almost 2 years now,and you’re about to lose everything!

10.  When you feel like giving up!

11. Nothing absolutely nothing is changing for the good! Instead things are going from bad to worse.

What am I suppose to do? Well I suggest we do as Jehoshaphat did, the enemies were coming  against him,these are the words he received   2 Chronicles 20:15,17

Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

17But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged.(NLT)

Yes,God is with us just as He was with Jehoshaphat,and when we take our position,and keep praising God in the midst of,whatever. God’s peace will come upon us giving us the strength to endure until our changes come. And do remember there are necessary changes being made on the inside,that we cannot see until much later.

Philippians 1:29,30

29For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for Him. 30We are in this struggle together. You have seen my struggle in the past, and you know that I am still in the midst of it.(NLT)

“Hallelujah”!! Praise God for his goodness and mercy to us.

Father please comfort and help my sisters  and brothers help them to hold on,Father help them to run to you in the midst of their anger and pain.Amen

Love in Christ Pat
