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.
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.
