Becoming Who You Were Meant To Be

One day, a boy climbing in the mountains found an Eagle’s nest with an egg in it. When he got home, he put it under a hen along with her other eggs.

Chickens 4When the Eagle hatched, he thought he was a Chicken. He learned Chicken behaviour and scratched in the Chicken yard with his ‘siblings’, he didn’t know any better.

Sometimes he felt strange stirrings within himself, but he didn’t know what to do with them, so he ignored or suppressed them.

After all, if he was a Chicken, he should behave like a Chicken.

One day, an Eagle flew over the Chicken yard and the Eagle looked up and saw him. In that moment, he realized he wanted to be like that Eagle, to fly high, to go to the mountain peaks he saw in the distance. As he spread his wings, he suddenly understood that he was like that Eagle…

Though he’d never flown before and there was no mother Eagle to help, he still possessed the instinct and capabilities.

At first he flew unsteadily, then with greater power and control.

Finally, as he soared, he became the creature that God had made him to be.

‘When we realize in our hearts we have been leading only half a life, the other half is going to reach out to us until we seek the Lord to empower us to Live it.

We were made by God and for God.

Until we understand what He has planed for us and what He has equipped us for we will not feel fulfilled or complete.

God wants our Love and Friendship without Him in our life it is without real meaning or purpose.

It’s only in Jesus Christ that we discover our purpose and our calling.

Isaiah 40: 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (KJV)

Music – Eagles Wings
Here I am waiting.Abide in me I pray.
Here I am longing.For You
Hide me in your Love Bring me to my knees
May I know Jesus More and more
Chorus
Come live in me all my life Take over
Come breathe in me I will Rise on Eagles wings
Words and Music By Rruben Morgan

God Bless you greatly for your Support and Encouragement

Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

Does God Willingly Allow Pain and Suffering?

Below is an explanation I received of why God allows Pain and Suffering but does He willingly?…

As a Man was having his hair cut and his beard trimmed in Barbershop they were talking about various subjects, when they eventually touched on the subject of God, the Barber said; ‘I don’t believe that God exists.’

‘Why do you say that?’ asked the Customer. ‘Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. Tell me, if God exists would there be so many sick people? would there be Abandoned Children?

If God existed there would be neither Pain nor Suffering! I can’t imagine a Loving God who would allow all of these things.’ The Customer thought for a moment but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument. The Barber finished his job and the customer left the Shop.

Just after he left the Barbershop he saw a Man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair, he looked dirty and unkempt. The Customer turned back and entered the Barbershop again and he said to the Barber:

‘You know what? Barbers do not exist.’

‘How can you say that?’ asked the surprised Barber. ‘I am here, and I am a Barber and I just worked on you!’

‘No!’ the Customer exclaimed. ‘Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair like that Man outside and some have untrimmed beards too.’

‘Ah but Barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when People do not come to me.’

‘Exactly!’ affirmed the Customer. ‘That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when People do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for Help. That’s why there’s so much Pain and Suffering in the World, so much Anger, yes so much Evil.’

I think it is good explanation but it still leaves questions unanswered. It always makes me ask; “Well why do people suffer who are seeking the Lord with all their hearts? or why are Christians hurting? and why do some Christians do wrong? or why do Children who God says are innocent until they are able to understand, why are they Abused, Abandoned and Suffer? because this can stay with them for the rest of their lives unless they are Healed, why does God not Stop Evil, He is God of the Impossible isn’t He?

Well you only have to read the Bible Trusting in Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to know the answer.

 Satan controls this earth and all the evil that is propagated by Man and has done so since Mankind chose to Sin and he has the right to put us to the Test as He did Jesus, Abraham, Job, Peter, Paul etc.  The Scripture confirms to say that even Christians do evil to bring good out of it is Slander how much more so to say it about God.

1John 5: 19- 20 We know that we are of God and the whole World lies under the Sway of the Wicked One. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is True and we are in Him who is True, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God and Eternal life.N.K.J.V

As we look at Paul’s life who was a very Godly man and who put God first, we see that He suffered greatly but look how he handled it and of course Jesus said in this world we will have trouble no matter how much you seek to do right, the only difference with Christians is Jesus is with us to carry us through the Storm. I feel it has to do a whole lot with our attitude too and how we look at trouble, just look at Paul’s attitude and how he looked at all the suffering and pain he went through and this was for doing good. He gave Thanks and to God and Rejoiced that He was with him through it all, he did not blame Him for afflicting  him or for willingly allowing or for planing the evil that afflicted him.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of Evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

We too will suffer when we follow Jesus as He did, we will be hated, slandered, abused and ignored even by some in our own Families and also in the Church, we may even be Martyred but  our reward will be great.

So as the Barber Message tells us we need to seek the Lord because without Him we experience all type of grief’s and problems that we can’t handle in a Godly way.

But God does not plan to bring suffering to us or willingly allows it but He will bring us through it ? ” We are to Love Him with all our Heart, Mind, Soul and yes with our All, we cannot Trust someone in our Heart whom we believe will deliberately hurt us or willingly allow it even if we claim it’s for our good and if we don’t Trust we cannot Love, we will have fleshy fear instead and not reverence which is what God tells us about unbelievers and Carnal or Baby Believers.

Yes sometimes we need to be disciplined and this hurts but God let’s us reap the evil we sow to bring us to Heart Repentance just as He did with the Prodigal Son but He Molds and Shapes us by the Fruit of The Spirit and so we will be  strengthened by what we go through so we can endure, which is confirmed in the Scriptures, Isaiah 43:1-3  He knew us before we were Conceived and it was not His will we are hurt, it grieves Him greatly but He Protects our Soul, He does not crush our spirit.

Psalm 97:9-11 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods. Ye that Love the Lord, hate evil, He preserveth the souls of His Saints, He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the Righteous and gladness for the Upright in Heart.

It is not only for this life we live which is like a Split Second in Eternity, God is preparing us for His Kingdom where we will know Complete Joy Eternally because there is no Death, Suffering or Pain of any kind there.

        

Why does God not stop evil? well we may never know how much He does intervene to help us but sometimes He does so Miraculously, we also have Doctors and Nurses, Medicine and Natural remedies these are all God’s Tools and He sends Carers and Support for Children and People in need.

 

 

 

.

.But if He did stop all evil then that would be the end of the World as it was in Noah’s time and some would be lost Eternally.

It is not God’s will anyone Perishes meaning to be Eternally separated from Him in Torment but He is giving those whom He knows as His own, time to come to Heart repentance and not one of us will be lost.

Although there is evil in all of us until we are Perfected, there is The Holy Spirit’s influence in our lives too and even with Non Christians because God knows His Redeemed Children from the beginning of time He knows all things and that we will repent and accept His free gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus and so by this foreknowledge He predestines us to be conformed into the image of Jesus as we work out our Salvation but not meaning work for it.

Repentance is not a one off thing as The Lord’s Prayer shows. We need to come to Heart repentance daily accepting the forgiveness we have in Jesus Christ and turning away from evil and doing good and we can because Jesus has set us free and no Temptation will be greater than we can bear.

We are all on a journey with The Lord yes even His Lost Sheep whom He goes after and brings back to the Fold and until we are Perfected in Love we can still choose to do things in the Carnal flesh and cause harm both to others and to ourselves until our flesh has been put to death and we are Born Again and Perfected in Love which we are all to Aim for. Jesus is our Advocate and only Intercessor, when we Repent we are forgiven.

Because of God’s great Love for us He is patient not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to Heart repentance. But He did not make us Puppets,  we are able to choose right from wrong and as the Carnal flesh is put to death    (Romans 8 :12-15- Romans 6 -Colossians 3:4-6 -Galatians 5:24 -26) and we are Perfected in Love  (Matthew 5:48 – Hebrews 6:1-Philippians 3:14-16 -2Timothy 3:17-1John 4:16-19- 1John 2:4-6- 2Corinthians 13:11) we become more and more Holy and we than walk as Jesus did on earth and we have His Mind and He does not choose to Sin .

When we do a lot that is evil, it can be because we are hurting greatly and although this does not make it right our God is a Compassionate and Loving and He will forgive us if we Repent which means being really sorry and not continuing to do evil but to do good which we can only do with His Strength as we seek Jesus to lead us.

Sadly there are people who are just evil and never come to Heart Repentance but we are not to judge others Eternal Destiny because only God knows their Heart but because we care we are to warn others if what they are doing is hurting themselves or other people. They might not listen or they may even reject us but we can accept whatever their response is without holding on to anger and hurt by asking God to help us deal with these feelings.

If someone needs to Chastise and warn us we appreciate their concern and ask God to show us if there is Truth in what they say and we will know if we are in the wrong because we will try to justify or cover up and we will have no Peace. This means we need to come to Repentance make amends when necessary and then turn from evil and do good .

By warning people we may give them doubts about what they are doing or believing and cause them to question why and maybe they will seek help from the Lord to have the Victory over whatever they are doing wrong or believing in error and if they will not listen even when others have warned them too then we can only leave it in the Lords hands and continue to Pray for them. This does not mean we judge them by our standards understanding or feelings but only by God’s Truth and we do so because we care and we do it with Love.

So why does God not stop all the evil in the World? He will one day but for now He remembers His Promise and that Jesus is our Ark so we need to hold onto His Promise in……

Romans 8:28 We know that all things works together for good to them that Love God, to them that are called according to His Purpose K.J.V

I will be in Touch, Christian Love Always – Anne.

So You Think You’ve Seen It All

Asking for God’s Wisdom

Jesus told us to Ask, Seek and Knock ( Matthew 7:7-8 & Luke 11:9-10) we do not just wait passively for things to happen and ignore or dismiss what is important for our Spiritual Maturity and one of the most impotent things we are to ask for is God’s Wisdom and His empowering by The Holy Spirit, none of us were Born with them, yes we all lack them but it takes a humble spirit to acknowledge our need of them and sadly many profess to be wise because of their worldly learning and so they Trust in their own understanding and others Trust in what they teach and so are deceived.

1 Corinthians 3:18-20 Let no man deceive himself, if any man among you seemeth to be wise in this World let him become a fool that he may be Wise. For the wisdom of this World is foolishness with God. For it is written; He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again; The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they are vain.

Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes fear the Lord and depart from evil.

The importance of asking for God’s Wisdom which is the Principle thing in getting His understanding with His empowering by The Holy Spirit, is we can than understand His Truth and having received we are than not deceived by False Teachers, Cults and error in Translations but we are not to doubt we have received them and keep asking, to do so means we are unstable and can be deceived, we Thank God instead and Trust Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to lead us into all understanding.

Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light and what ye hear in the ear that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)… perhaps our Computers today?

If you love the Scriptures like I do and value their importance in our Lives with them all being inspired by God and also love to share them, there are many more Scriptures on the Link and below, which also gives us God’s Truth in asking for His Wisdom and Empowering.

James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith nothing wavering, for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Luke 11:13 If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts unto your Children how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie, and even as it hath Taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

The Scripture below is very important in understanding the Empowering of The Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit for the Spirit searcheth all things yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the World but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him neither can he know them because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

Devil In Disguise

Thank you Cavelle for making a Stand against what God calls evil, your Message is powerful with much Truth and yes a warning we all need to take to heart.

Hey guys!

Today I want to present a warning to you in order to help restore your ability to be a critical thinker. A crucial weapon we need to arm ourselves with in order to fight this volatile world we live in right now.

It is no secret that the world we live in today is in major turmoil and it does not seem to be getting any better as time goes on. Clearly, the devil is at work as more and more people are losing hope for humanity and many are losing their faith in God as a result.

As the devil brings out the obvious big guns like war, mass shootings, angry protests, hate crimes, government scandals, and the list goes on, it does not compare to the devil’s biggest weapon of mass destruction and that is his deceit.

The Bible warns us of this deceit-

The Prayer Room Power

The Power of Prayer changes Fear to Strength, Hate to Love, Bitterness to Forgiveness, Needs to Thankfulness, Sickness to Health, Lost to Found.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.(KJV)

Pray without ceasing, Wow does that mean we don’t stop to eat or sleep or do anything else? No we do what is natural for us to live but we are to always be centered on the Hope we have in Christ Jesus, our Hearts are our cupboard of Prayer and God hears and answers and even gives us our Heart desires, which will be according to His will when The Holy Spirit prays in and through us.

Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should Pray for as we ought but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the Hearts knoweth what is the Mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the Will of God.

Jude 1: 20 But ye, beloved building up yourselves on your most Holy Faith, Praying in the Holy Ghost.
