For many years this has been a mystery of the “Why can’t I see miracles happening in my own life as for those in the past or around me today?” By all means, wasn’t it Christ the Lord who said; “Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” King James Version KJV. Then what happened? What did I do wrong? God is the same God of yesterday, today and tomorrow, right? The answer to those and many other questions alike is…nothing…absolutely nothing. I as well have been stuck at this crossroad for many years in my life feeling as if I’m not worthy enough or perhaps God is too busy to pay attention to my unimportant desires or hopes, but how very wrong was I. God is ALWAYS available and listening carefully to His children and willing and ready to give us our very heart’s desires, however, allow me to explain something. Sometimes we forget the other part of that verse which states; John 15:  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.Now, I don’t know about you, but this tells me that we must stay in constant fellowship with Christ and allow the word of God to rein within our hearts. That fellowship means spending time with our Lord, building a relationship, BELIEVING in God’s word for it is written; Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” But where does this believing begin? Romans 10:10-17: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Therefore, it is with the heart that we believe, amen. Now, back to the asking. So, we can say that our words that comes from our mouth when asking God of some miracle, a desire, our hopes and dreams are just that…words, thoughts, but lacks power, because there is no feeling. They may be sincere, honest, and out of the right attitude, but lacks the power to move God. Why? Because we must ask believing that we have ALREADY received what we’ve asked for. That’s right! We must take those thoughts and bring them 18 inches to our heart and FEEL as though we’ve received what we’ve just asked for. The feeling is the silent language spoken out of faith…knowing that you know, that you….unquestionable. That means, not worrying where it’s coming from, not doubting if your voice has been heard, but merely believing it in…surrounding yourself with that vision of your desire and FEELING as if it has already happened and being grateful and thankful that it has been fulfilled, amen. We are feeling beings and that silent language when thought is combined with feeling from the heart…miracles happen right before your eyes…I’m a living witness to that fact. We walk by faith, not by sight. Now ask yourself this question…how much power do you think we really have dwelling within us? If we only believe…to change our lives…to change other people lives, the world around us? I can only image. Look in the mirror and ask yourself…”Who am I?” One that was created in the image of God…the creator of all things seen and unseen. The gospel of Thomas verse 106 Jesus said; “Jesus said, “When you make the two one,(thought and feeling) you will become the sons of man, and when you say, ‘Mountain, move away,’ it will move away.” … (108) Jesus said, “He who will drink from my mouth will become like me. I myself shall become he, and the things that are hidden will be revealed to him.” Amen. Are you ready to start believing? May God continue to watch over you and protect you from ALL unseen, hurt harm and danger…you and your household. God bless you.
..,.Is The Great Battle of Tug-of-War
Everyone deals with this inner, battle or struggle, conflict within our lives on a regular basis. Trying tenaciously not to give in to those desires or temptations that would perhaps lead us off the course of the desired destination that would and could be more beneficial, however, this duality state of never giving rest to the conscious and unconscious alike. What we sometimes fail to realize…including myself, is that we’re not merely fighting against the unseen known enemies of God, but this fleshly nature that was brought up, cultivated, let loose as a creature of habit in a world that is filled with every desire known to man and woman’s heart to be then set at bay? Far-be-it! It will fight tooth and nail for its existence, its desires, and its lust and against anything or anyone that attempts to derail its very nature of being…including your very own self…your spirit. You see, the spirit only uses the flesh like a suit if you will, to roam around in unfamiliar territory to either be subdued by the world and its lust or advance for the Kingdom of God and reach a higher calling placed upon your life that was set before you were even born. Now the choice is yours…free-will. Experience is our best teacher, and as we continue through this journey called life, we begin to see clearly with an evaluation of self which path we’re more likely to follow…either that of the flesh or the spirit, things of God or things of the world. Granted, some of our decisions are so subtle that we don’t really know if our decisions are right or wrong, we just simply “follow” the crowd, or what we “think” is the right thing to do. The Apostle Paul even came aware that “something” was going on he didn’t quite understand in Romans chapter 7:14-23; 14 We know that the law is spiritual but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. 21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil (the flesh and the unseen) is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being (the spirit) I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me (the flesh), waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin (in the world) at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind (Spirit) am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature (Flesh) a slave to the law of sin. Well, he explains this in great detail of this inner struggle or battle that rages and wars against our very souls. But there is hope! He states in verse 24; WHO? Will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? God, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. Paul states in 2 Corinthians 13:5; 5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? Examine yourselves! On that note, I leave you with this to consider and remember. John 14:27; 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
May God the Father continue to watch over you and your families always and especially during this Corvid-19 crisis. May all your needs be provided and that you are strengthened in your faith and sound in wisdom and understanding and that your spirit becomes stronger than your fleshly nature that you may be able to stand in the hour of need in Jesus name. Amen
…but a lifestyle that impacts the world.
What is Christianity anyway? Basically, every definition you come across has it labeled as a “Religion”.
Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Wikipedia’s definition.
No wonder so many Believers appear to be so confused, lost and torn apart in Sects and misguided truths about this walk and the real reason you were called by God. We’ve become watered-down, fearful and timid in the hands of institutionalized religions instructing and guiding us based on the standards of this world and NOT the Word of God. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6. Don’t get me wrong in my sharing, because I don’t believe that every church out there is teaching in this fashion, however many are and continue with a passion not realizing their error. The Apostle Paul asked a profound question in
1 Corinthians 1:13 “Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? (Sects) Going back to verse 10 he states: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” Now I don’t know about you or even how you may feel about this verse, but it speaks very clearly to me. I know we all may not agree on scripture meanings or translations, but when the obvious is stated there is no room to disagree. Everything from “New Age Religion” to seeking your universal higher power, appears to be of the “same mind” thought, focus and power to boot. “Giving them what their itchy ears want to hear.” It’s a god as you would like him to be in your own mind for you…a gene in a bottle and millions are like minded in that walk “Deliberate Creation”. It’s almost like the Israelites in the desert praising a calf, right. I’m just a sinner saved by the grace of God, and most of the time I struggle in this walk more than most, however, I don’t give up and when believers are in need of guidance, stewarding and wounds mended from a harsh, cruel and uncaring world…I want to know that I can comfy in brothers or sisters that are believer that is filled with the Spirit of God with Christ as Lord over their life that I may know that those words that I hear are actually the words of my God understanding, building me up and preparing me to stand back up and finish the race of faith…Amen. We ARE NOT an Institution, we ARE NOT show boaters for the world, We ARE NOT misinformed and we ARE NOT defeated. Christianity is a way of lifestyle for those who are real believers. Nowadays, everybody wants to a be the captain of the ship, the head-man in charge, the title holder, but if I’m not mistaken, Christ was a servant for the world and King of all today. Food for thought. I love you through Christ Jesus my Lord and may the Father of ALL living things bless you unmeasurably, you and your household and protect you from all unseen hurt harm and danger. Amen if you agree. Now I will leave you with this for your encouragement.
It’s not uncommon today that we move about in this world not really believing that there is something that influences our minds and thoughts whether good or bad if we believe there is such a thing as good and bad. Believe me as most of us already know…Satan’s greatest trick was to make the world believe he doesn’t exist. Just look around you today, with New Age religions and believe that you are god, pray to the universe…the created not the creator and that ALL religions lead to God…etc..etc, and the list goes on. We have to wake up if we haven’t already, because the Word states…“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:24
Leave your thoughts. May God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ bless you and your household and protect you from all unseen hurt harm and danger.
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
We have all suffered this at one point in our lives. Some more than others, and some until this very day. They say “Man never plans to fail, but fail to plan.” Is also a trustworthy statement to be made. We go about our lives o auto-pilot wishing, hoping and waiting for the best to work out in the end and at times it does, but only for a short while and then here we go again. Repeating the same boomerang effect of life repeating itself, but why? Because life doesn’t bargain on our terms. It gives us what we believe within our eternal being of who we are. I didn’t learn this overnight, on the contrary, it took me many years of continued failure to really understand this concept. That if I’m to see REAL change in my life and those around me, I must begin with that inner man that has been programmed for so many years, hardwired to a self-destructing mindset. That’s an awful lot to accept and take in at first though, but very true. We look for the outside world to blame when things don’t turn out the way we planned, or end up on a bad note. Not realizing I was the one attracting most of my own misfortunes and deeds to myself. Locking them in on me like a homing device. I began to pay attention to thoughts, behavior, attitudes, irritations, and question myself about why do I go through so many contradicting things, Continue reading
”A man’s enemies will be those of his own household” Matthew 10:36
What was the true meaning behind this statement Christ so profoundly exclaimed? That our family members are secretly our enemies out to see us harm or destroy us in some kind of way? That jealousy, money, greed or power of one family member over another create enemies within our homes? Well, I don’t entirely agree with this more than I agree with the fact that we ourselves are our worst enemies we could ever have in our lifetime based on the battle waged against ourselves in our minds…the true battlefield. We know that we are the living temple of God and that His Spirit dwells within us…an extension of God in human form. Therefore, we tend to beat ourselves up to death at times destroying the very thing we’re trying to build…spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. The “I can’t”, “It’s impossible”, “Fear”, “Self-hate”, …all the expressions of lack of faith and excuses we give ourselves is what we continue to receive because we haven’t learned yet about that almighty living power of God dwelling within us to press forward in absolute faith to overcome. Didn’t it say somewhere in the word…”31 what then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:31-39
Paul made something very clear if we are to be more than conquerors in this lifetime and start life anew with a new vision and a new hope…renewed with a new strength as a new man and that was…”And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2. The battle and the real enemy is that of the mind, and if there is no enemy in the mind, then there is no enemy to point the finger at on the outside. Conqueror your inner fears with faith and let the light of God shine throughout your entire being. Our Lord did it and showed us how…keep in step with the Spirit. God bless.
Romans 7:14-23 King James Version (KJV)
14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Did you know that your thoughts actually create your reality? First, let me start by saying I apologize for being out of the loop for a while. (Multiple projects)
D.R.Tracy is back for 2018…Hello and sorry for the disappearance for a time, but other projects demanded my attention and still going, but here I am. Battlefield of Angels as a series along with the new release coming soon “The Gossip Corner series and I’ve been busy working on the screenplay, which I must say is another beast entirely, but of course I invite the challenge which requires a lot of focus and attention, and in between projects just seems to take up so much time. I’m glad to see so many still faithfully continuing to post…this is a grand motivator for me. May God through the Lord Jesus Christ who works in and through us continue to watch over, strengthen and bless EVERYTHING you do and touch for 2018 and keep your loved one safe from seen and unseen hurt harm and danger…God bless you family.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
We don’t understand as we ought to when it comes to the things of God and pertaining to God…walking with God the Holy Spirit and keeping in step thereof. Only my opinion of course not knowing the hearts of men and women of God, only the evidence of what is seen around us on a daily basis pertaining to our struggles and fears and doubts and wavering back and forth in faith amongst Believers. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I also include myself in this number of struggling as well. We attempt to try to achieve many things ourselves apart from God but leads us becoming independent from God and causes the enemy…ego– the joy to see that inner struggle and shipwreck faith when clearly we can do NOTHING apart from God, because that outter man knows not the spiritual things which pertains to God….only that which is worldly, Amen. The word states; “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” James 4:10. Humility and faith incorporated with love are our strongest weapons of warfare here and now. That humility of heart, that allows our Lord to fill us up with His Spirit that God will lift us above all adversity that we may encounter; “Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. That faith that shakes mountains because we believe in the God of our Lord and Savior that is the same yesterday, today and forever; “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelations 22:13…and that love that surpasses all understanding that confuses “the world” because of its insensitivity to accept it; “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16. Kingdom virtues don’t compromise with sin or play parts in negotiations with the world or the enemy. Kingdom virtues stand in a position that looks at the world through the eyes of God and knows that it know, that it knows who we are and is evident by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. “Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” He said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the LORD.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?”…(a representative of the kingdom of heaven knows his place in this world), Amen. Let us, therefore, strive to put on these virtues as Ambassadors of Heaven, knowing who we are in Christ as the Lord leads us and direct us from faith to faith and glory to glory, being no longer tossed as a child, but striving to become mature in our faith to carry out the works God has prepared for us since the beginning; “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Hebrews 5:12. May the God and Father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over, protect and bless everything you do and touch in Jesus name. Amen.
…lies not within the power of men, but in a risen Lord.
“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6.
How long must we suffer defeat? How long will it take for us to wake up and realize that this divine spiritual battle is very real and wages war against our souls? The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” Job 1:8. Our enemy knows us all too well, perhaps better than we do. He (Satan) also knows scripture better than most of us if not all of God’s word, however, what he doesn’t know is the heart of man only the mind based on us following after the things of the flesh and its desires. Family, this is why we have so many scriptures of examples and fore-fathers of faith that directs us through these land-minds of bear traps set up by the enemy, because (1), without the Spirit of Christ we are sure to suffer defeat and stand condemned, (2), without the Spirit of Christ we could never grow up in “spiritual maturity” to distinguish right from wrong to walk victoriously and overcome the enemy in this life, and (3), we need to wake up and realize who we truly are in Christ what we were created to do while on this earth for the short time we are here. There is a solution…Christ Jesus our Lord and King. Having that Spirit deposited within you begins your journey to victory. The key…Christ in us gives us that authority for our commission as well as that grand love for humanity and that humility that is needed for the Spirit of God rest upon us to carry out the works God has for us individually to complete through Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen. So the real keys here are LOVE and HUMILITY…everything else shall follow…I promise. Family, I say this with all the love the Lord has placed in my heart for my brothers and sisters in Christ that I haven’t yet reached this “maturity” spiritually, though I strive to do so as God has given me revelation to some of these things I share. I have suffered much shipwreck faith during my years of learning how to walk by faith and not by sight, and til this day, I strive praising the Lord for every defeat, victory, lesson learned and blessings in Christ, for this shows me that the hand of God continues to be with me, because this inner man continues to call out in power and have such a deep longing to be part of this glorious kingdom of our Lord. So I will press on in faith as I encourage my brothers and sisters to do the same, and permit not the enemy to be victor over you, for He that dwells within you is so much greater than he that is in this world. Amen. Separate the illusion from the things that are real, and practice to learn the difference between having a form of Godliness to growing to spiritual maturity…,for these remain…FAITH…LOVE…HUMILITY…HOPE, with these we can never fail and will ALWAYS come out victoriously. Amen. May the God and Father of us all watch over and protect you in everything you do and touch as we walk from faith to faith and glory to glory in Jesus name. Amen and God bless.
