The Graciousness of our LORD…
He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:11
I am truly thankful for the mercy and graciousness of our LORD! Thank you JESUS!!! Thank you GOD! I find it amazing, when you truly give yourself to Christ. Just as you are, and you ask GOD to change you, and you RECEIVE the Gift that JESUS came to Give YOU!
Well, honey ^_^ Life is SWEET!!!!!!!
Of course there are Trials and Tribulations. Why?
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.‘” Matthew 4:4
Revelation: GOD wants us to SOLELY depend on HIM! Amen! Not only to depend on him, but to be humble in heart. To be Beautiful, in a sense. It’s not always what “we” want when “we” want it! Read Corinthians 13 if you want to have a Revelation of how WE ought to be ♥ Amen!
This week has been a journey for me, filled with Revelation! Thank you GOD! For Molding me as Clay, for preparing me for whats to come. Yes I have plenty of Trials including this Morning! Thank GOD I know his WORD!!! GOD‘s Word is…
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:11
…Powerful I suggest you begin studying it! Seriously!!!
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Psalms 30:5
When you Believe in GOD‘s Word you can be Re-energized!!!
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28
Romans 8:28, Helped me through moments that I just failed. I love JESUS CHRIST! I LOVE GOD. GOD never fails! He is Always Faithful. I have asked GOD many times…
“God Please, I LOVE you! I pray that this is real, that my Love is real for you! That I love you no matter what, write it on my heart that I may Love you with all my Heart! Please Place it there, If I do not LOVE you or these words are not real, please tear the bad away that is in my heart, and Make it so that I LOVE you with all that I am! Change Me, make me to whom you made me to be, who I am called to be!“
This week, I received this revelation on “the Wilderness“. It’s something that Joyce Meyers speaks a lot on, and I received the revelation on why:
You see the Trials, are difficult. The Trials and Tribulations are the moments when you are NOT trusting GOD. They are the moments when you are in the wilderness and all you have is GOD! When GOD is trying to lead you to a “land of milk and honey” (Prosperity and Abundance) and you can either Surrender! Or be as the Israelites were on the Journey with Moses; stubborn, slaves to the old way of thinking, prideful and not humble or grateful at all. 😦
(side note: I wonder when all we have is GOD to depend on, and we gripe, complain, dose this hurt GOD? Do we hurt GOD when we are not Grateful? When we do not Trust Him? I wonder…how would you feel if you were taking your loved ones to this amazing place that you know they will love! A place that you want them to just enjoy. A place that you want to show them with love and they can also know that you love them…a lot…, but first there is a journey or a road you have to go through that is not very pleasant, but you know it’s worth it. But starting on, in the journey, instead of being hopeful and excited, trusting and loving, they just kept complaining along the way. Kept saying things that made you see that they did not trust you, maybe even, they did not love You as you thought they did. And you love them so unconditionally with all your heart and all you want is GOOD for them. How would you feel? When they get there would you even feel as though they would appreciate it? or find something wrong or something else to complain about in the beautiful place? Would they even remember what they went through to get there or even what you went through? Just a side note)
These Trials and Tribulations is what makes you Grounded in CHRIST! These Trials and Tribulations is what prepares you to maintain what GOD will give you. To appreciate and truly enjoy…Life…truly enjoy GOD… These TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS are the moments when GOD is revealing your “SIN” UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, YOUR OPPOSITION TOWARDS GOD; & I find when you love GOD and when you see yourself how “mean” you are or have been, how “prideful you are or have been” how basically UGLY you are, it will hurt (this is called Repenting). Not only because you see yourself without GOD’s Clothing, but also because you will see the hurt you have caused others and you will feel their pain because of your Actions (You are now taking RESPONSIBILITY, you are now getting dressed in CHRIST)
(Another side note, would you go outside naked as you are? Or would you get dressed? And if you had to go to the beach would you be ready for it or would you be with an, un-exercised body? I’m just saying :P).
I noticed it depends on you, on how long you may remain in the wilderness “TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS“. How long will you be stubborn, full of pride, think you can do it yourself, lazy, not meditate or pay attention to what GOD is trying to show you. It’s not about what people say or do. It’s not about money, or what you can receive. It’s ABOUT…..
Don’t depend on anything other than GOD for your Joy and happiness. GOD is ALL you NEED! GOD is “I AM“
“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.” Jeremiah 29:11
Hosanna in the Highest!
