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.

1 Corinthians 14:33 – NKJV

Salvation

There are still so many people that think this way;
I’ll come to Jesus after I get myself right. But what they fail to realize is
that there is no way to get right without Jesus Christ. No matter what you try
you cannot get clean enough on your own to please God. The void in your life is
there on purpose,it’s where Jesus is suppose to be. Jesus Christ,God’s great
gift to us is God’s way of getting us right.And we must first believe in God,and
the finished work that Jesus Christ has done. For by the power of the eternal
Spirit,Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Hebrews 9:14 (b)
I no longer count on my own goodness or my ability to
obey God’s law, But I trust Christ to save me. For God’s way of making us right
“with himself depends on faith. Philippians 3:9

For if you confess with
your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from
the dead,you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are
made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
Romans 10:9,10
Simply by faith you are made right in God’s sight
Love in Christ Pa

Change


Change is not easy I already know that and I’m sure you do too. Oh I do not like changes but I am sure they are for our good,and for the good of others. I’ve learned and I am still learning that God’s word is true,his ways of doing things are so far from what we want and what we think we need. I know when ever changes come into our life and we consider them bad,we want relief and we “want it now”! If relief is not quick enough some other bad boys show up,doubt and fear. They work well together I’m telling you,just in case you hadn’t noticed. It’s only been a week since my surgery and can you believe,I’m complaining already! I have been praying  moreI tell ya.For some strange reason I just knew I’d be better by now,yea right, O silly me LOL!! As I’ve said many times before I know God has a big sense of humor. He just has to have because I’m his and I need so much more work! God is truly awesome and so very kind and patient. I got so tired after my doctor’s appointment and several other stops by the time I got home my knee was huge,and very painful. Then the thoughts start coming you’ll never be the same,look at you you can’t do this and that,and right now it feels like that. But I know we walk by faith and not by feelings. Regarless to what fear and doubt try to bring I’m holding on to Gods word because that’s where my strength comes from. Do keep praying for me,the pain is nothing close to what it was before my surgery. I must relax and take it slow as my  doctor said it’s slow but it’s coming,it just seems so much more than I can bear.But I know that’s not true for God knows how much I can bear.The doctor said it will take a while for full recovery,but you know we’re so much  like that commercial “I want it now”! But our Father moves in his own way and time while teaching us important lessons.Thanks so much for your prayers and continued support.

Love in christ Pat

Scriptures I’m holding on to.

Joshua 1:9
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”(NLB)

Isaiah 41
10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.NLB)
