New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘God’s Spokesman’

Now go ahead and do as I tell you, for I will help you to speak well, and I will tell you what to say.” (Exodus 4:12 TLB)

God spoke and told me He wanted me to speak to the heart and core of His people, like Moses I was afraid. I had always felt inadequate in my life, but after my ‘Divine Encounter’ with Jesus Christ, and depending upon the Holy Spirit of God, I began to become bold and courageous. I loved God with all my heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul. However, I did need the supernatural strength and power of the Holy Spirit of God, to equip and empower me from heaven, to be obedient to Christ. I needed His wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and courage to speak God’s Word. I trusted God completely in everything. He has a plan for my life, so I knew He would direct my path to those who were in need of His love and comfort. Speaking out to others is hard to do, but standing on the promises of God, gave me confidence. I believed in faith He was building my life upon the rock and foundation of Jesus Christ, so I trusted Him when He called me to go; I obeyed His commandments. I had a great and faithful God. He has never let me down yet. Seeing God’s hand in my every day life, knowing He answers my prayers, gives me confidence and faith to go deeper with Him. He is a wonderful and awesome God, who has proved His faithfulness to me time and time again.

Dear brothers, warn those who are lazy, comfort those who are frightened, take tender care of those who are weak, and be patient with everyone. (1 Thessalonians 5:14 TLB)

New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Saved by Christ’

I don’t mean to say I am perfect. I haven’t learned all I should even yet, but I keep working toward that day when I will finally be all that Christ saved me for and wants me to be. (Philippians 3:12 TLB)

I found it a wonderful experience when Jesus Christ saved me, I could now partake in experiencing the mighty power that raised Christ from death. He began teaching me suffering with Christ is sharing in His death so, I too can experience the resurrection. I wanted to work desperately towards what Jesus wanted me to become – focusing all my energies on Him, forgetting the past and the holds it had upon me. Now, I could look forward to the future God has for me. I wanted more than anything to obey the truth and follow the examples of Christ, which He left for me to follow, walking in submission and yielding and dedicating my life to the Holy Spirit of God. I laid aside everything harmful that would get in the way of my walk with God. I did not want anything that may distract me from being an effective Christian for God. All I wanted to be was what God had created me to be and follow Him all the days of my life on earth.

No, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
(Philippians 3:13 TLB)

New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Delighted in God’

Be delighted with the Lord. Then he will give you all your heart’s desires. (Psalm 37:4TLB)

Reading the Word of God teaches us how to understand the Scriptures by praying to God and also listening to our hearts to what God says. Our joy is constantly in Him, our expectations, dreams, plans, and ambitions are in Him. No longer do we want to do anything in our own strength or will. What we should want more than anything is to be in the centre of God’s will. After all, God has a plan for each persons life so we should not doubt Him. We must commit our will and ways to God in the name of Jesus Christ, daily. We should ask the Holy Spirit of God, to fill us afresh and anew with His supernatural strength, power, presence, and glory. He will enable and empower us to glorify, magnify, and exalt His name to all whom we meet and we will be able to testify, glorify, what Jesus has done for us.
Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him to help you do it, and he will.
(Psalm 37:5 TLB)

New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘True Doctrine‘

The Lord God has given me his words of wisdom so that I may know what I should say to all these weary ones. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will. (Isaiah 50:4 TLB)

The Lord has been very clear to me that He wants me to speak His Doctrine to His people. God has taught me how to remember and meditate upon His Word, by writing it upon my heart and mind. He has shown me the importance of  Scripture and praying with the  Spirit is very powerful. We are praying God’s Word back to Him. Having faith to believe God’s Word, establishes the truth in our hearts, minds, body’s, spirit’s, and soul’s. It gives us faith, confidence, trust, to believe our prayer’s are answered at His appointed time when we are obedient to Him. Declaring God’s works to His people is essential. We must spread the Good News, the Gospel of Christ; as far and wide as we can. Every opportunity God gives to us, we must speak out in truth and express God’s love. Our words must be seasoned with salt and spoken with grace. He commands us to pour oil in the ear, we must not offer a man what he wants to hear. Speaking the truth they can be saved, and only by Christ’s truth they can be set free.

A good man is known by his truthfulness; a false man by deceit and lies.
(Proverbs 12:17 TLB)

Keep a close watch on all you do and think. Stay true to what is right and God will bless you and use you to help others. (1 Timothy 4:16 TLB)

New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘God Understands‘

If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. (Proverbs 3:4-5 TLB)

Trusting in God is the backbone of our faith. We must acknowledge God in everything we do. We must not lean upon our worldly understanding but depend upon God to give us the spiritual understanding we need from Him to walk with Him. He teaches us that we no longer need to carry any burden or heavy loads. Jesus wants to carry them for us if we will let Him. We must allow Him to do what is best for us. He helps us to make the right choices and decisions through the Holy Spirit of God. We must never omit any God - given ability for any reason. Jesus wants us to trust in His ideas and be counselled by Him. We must bring everything to Him in prayer. He will unfold the plans He has for us and bring us to the place where we will understand at His appointed time.

In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. (Proverbs 3:6 TLB)

New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘Dealing with Evil’

So everywhere we go we talk about Christ to all who will listen, warning them and teaching them as well as we know how. We want to be able to present each one to God, perfect because of what Christ has done for each of them. This is my work, and I can do it only because Christ’s mighty energy is at work within me. (Colossians 1:28-29 TLB)

The day we believed and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ we begin to understand who we are in Him. We must not accept the negativity from man/women about ourselves, which is untrue. First, we have to admit to God we have allowed such feelings and emotions to affect our relationship with Him by limiting what He has given us. Even when family and friends doubt the plans and actions God may have scheduled for our lives, we still must obey God, and we will be blessed by doing so.
God will show us through His Spirit how we should deal with the Devil and his evil demonic forces, which control our mind-set. He empowers us through His supernatural power and teaches us to bind the Devil’s works, which rise up against us. Praying is the only way to deal with the trials we face. Matthew 18:18, tells us how to overcome the demonic forces by binding the strong man then dealing with him in Jesus Christ’s name and blood. We should allow nothing to cause us to doubt God’s Word or promises. Jesus is the One who set us free through His cross and the truth of His Word. He will do the same for us all.

How great he is! His power is absolute! His understanding is unlimited. The Lord supports the humble, but brings the wicked into the dust. (Psalm 147:5-6 TLB)

New Blog Post – ‘Come Into God’s House and Meet with Him in Prayer’ – ‘New Person’

So get rid of all that is wrong in your life, both inside and outside, and humbly be glad for the wonderful message we have received, for it is able to save our souls as it takes hold of our hearts. (James 1:21 TLB)

Through the Holy Spirit we are accepted by Him. We can now see ourselves through His eyes. He tells us we have been with Him from the very beginning. He gives us His love and contentment. The moment we accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and Lord into our lives, our lives will be changed radically. We experience a love, which is different from anything we previously experienced. We become joyous, happy, and full of love and happiness. We want to share Christ’s love with others as we wish they too would experience the same love we experience in Him. He plants the seed of God within us, and we wish His seed and love to flow from our heart to the heart of His people, sharing in the Kingdom of God and wanting others to be saved. His peace and joy are the products of our acceptance in Him. We can now see our life from His point of view. We do not need to struggle or feel lonely anymore, as He encourages us and shows us how to deal with negativity, incorrect thoughts, and ways that could lead to self-pity by the messages He sends to us, through His Spirit in our hearts. We are a new creation, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God ordained we should walk in Him.

When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! (2 Corinthians 5:17 TLB)
