In Aussie Land we Blog differently then most of you do in America ( see link below ) we often speak to each other on the Blog we are visiting, sometimes we may be sharing with 3 different people, it does indeed making Blogging more than just a passing interest and often wonderful friendships are formed on the Blog and off.
On Christian Aussie Blogs if we don’t agree we will mostly seek to resolve our differences lovingly by reasoning together with God’s Truth and we do this because He tells us not to just agree to disagree because in the end this causes division and God is a God of Unity. If needed we will correct each other as the Scriptures tell us to do or even rebuke and warn but not according to our own agenda but with Scriptural confirmation of what the Lord has told us and we do so in Love and for Love, being in error can cause harm to both the person and those who read what is shared.
Today as I did my Devotions I visited Juliana and she was sharing about praying in The Name of Jesus ( see link below ) and I was encouraged by her message to ponder further but I will just share briefly now how Jesus confirmed her message in my heart and I’m sure you if you take the time to visit, you will be just as uplifted by Juliana’s message as I was.
When we pray in the name of Jesus it is more than just words all Biblical names had meanings and were based on the character of the person and this is so with Jesus Christ and so when we Pray in His name we are also recognizing His Character and what it means to us and this is the same when we say we believe in Him, our belief comes from our heart conviction of His Character which is like The Father and The Holy Ghost being one in The Godhead or Trinity as They are known today, They are all goodness and Holiness, compleat in One and They can do no evil. God is Love.
Juliana confirmed this Truth beautifully as she described God as a God of Love who wants to bless us, we are His Children and His plans for us are good. His discipline and chastising is not to harm us in any way as some believe but to bring us to our senses much the same as the Prodigal son, we reap what we ourselves sow and if evil it is not pleasant but God our Loving Heavenly Father our Abba daddy, waits patiently for us to return or rescues us before we fall away … How good is that!
Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
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.
God bless you all greatly as you share His Truth on your Blogs and may you be uplifted and encouraged by what others and I share. Most of you know I passionately enjoy relating how God has spoken through other Christians by sharing their stories and messages and I also share my own messages, Poetry and Power points, as God has lead me with the Hope theirs and mine will bring encouragement, support, Joy and also comfort when needed to you.
I Love you All in Christ Jesus or as I mostly say… Christian Love from both of us or Anne. (Annie or Melody)
