One thing that is clear to me is that some of us still think that God is like us, we have humanized him and brought him down to our level ...his ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not our thoughts..

The Lords ways are just and perfect, he is meticulous and specific , we would be wise to follow his instructions and do things as he sets out not our way, not the way we think or feel ..many of men have fallen for not following instructions to the letter.

God is not partial, there are no extenuating circumstances ...he does not deliniate, does not change, he does not turn, he is perfect.

To call yourself a servant of God (bond slave) or 'doulos' means that you have 'no rights', you belong to someone else ...you do everything your master says to do, you do nothing without his knowledge or approval...nothing...

When it comes to God many of us are not there yet (myself inluded) ..sadly, my will and desires are still alive and kicking ...

Wish I could be numb again Lord. That would make living so much easier. I wouldn't care if no one man loved me. I would care if no one ever called me or wanted me. I would be able to just do everything with no feeling. God why do you have me alive if you have me feeling things. I so want to go back to the way I was years ago so that way I wouldn't feel this lonely pain or anything at all even joy since that is fleeting as well.

He's there, whether others nitpick over your life...He's there. You keep on that path the L-rd had fashioned for you. Nevermind the naysayers and those who have no understanding. Keep on that path He has fashioned for you. In the end, you will see. So will they, in fact. But the most important thing to do is to be faithful to the calling He has for you.

My story I have become addicted to. I have allowed what should be liberating become debilitating. I have held myself hostage for so long in my past. God guided me out of it and I go back to it because it's familar. I want to be happy and joyful but I allow things to enter me that shouldn't ever grace me. I am acting like a chicken--that eats whatever instead of being like the eagle that I was born to be. I want to soar and not allow anything to reduce my wing span. I want to walk into my anointing--the thing that allows you to truly function in God. I hope my last failure God won't count me out I really feel this lesson has been learned and I don't ever want to go through this again. Thank God for another day another chance.

Faith is easy when things are going well or falling into place.
Faith is easy when you believe in your abilities.
Faith is easy when you've had a hedge of protection all your life thus far.

But when things are not going well or falling into your place ...
When your abilities do not matter in this particular situation ...
When the hedge of protection is lowered significantly ...

Where's your faith now?

Today, after countless prayers and hesitation, I put my complete trust in Him.
Not 50% .. not 80% ... but complete trust.
There is nothing that will follow that I can claim is from my own ability.
All that will follow will be to His glory.

I remember when you were on my mind day and night. Couldnt wait to talk to you. Wanted to know everything about you. Name dropped you in every conversation. The whole world just seemed like a big distraction from you. I remeber when psalm 1 was my life motto, you prospered me in every way, for years! Then I took my eyes off you, I forgot my first love (Rev 2:4). How I have fallen! I will repent and do all the things I did before. I will obey your precepts, and love you with all my heart and soul. This tree shall be planted near the rivers of water. I will bear fruit in every season because I will plant my tree near the only source that matters.

I did but it was something that I had already sorta thought about. I often think if I hadn't gone through xyz what would I be. I have allowed it to make me instead of making me better.

April 1


II Peter 1:1

Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ. (New King James Version)

This may seem like a strange verse for commentary, but even this is loaded with practical application. Peter introduces himself to his readers and a servant by choice of Jesus Christ. This was mutual choice because Peter responded by choice when he was Christ's choice. Before you start flinging titles around, make sure you're a servant of Christ. Your title is irrelevant if you don't intend to serve God and His people. Then, Peter puts himself on equal ground with the rest of those chosen by faith. We have all been given a right standing with God because of Jesus. Some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers. However, we all fit together like a building for God to inhabit us in the Spirit. It given another context to God "inhabiting" our praise. When we get together to praise God, we fulfill the purpose for which we were created. It creates a special and life changing atmosphere when God descends to attend the praise gathering.

@loolalooh right on!

I went through a season where I had to stand on Jeremiah 17:7-8. God is faithful.

I applied for a job and it was one requirement that I do not have yet. I applied anyway b/c I knew that I could do the job. I trusted God for His favor. Well, God blessed me with the job!

Loolalooh, whatever you are in need of I pray that God will bless you exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you could ever imagine. I pray that God will cover you with His favor shield. May the Lord remove every hindrance, interference, and all stumbling blocks from the enemy in Jesus name. Amen.
