How easy is it to fall into the trap of the enemy? Whether it’s materialism, lies or insincere friendships, the enemy tries to attack us in any way it can to separate us from the love of God.
One way this can happen in your life is through friendships. And when I say ‘friendships’ I mean those who keep secrets from and try to persecute you.
I have had many friends who I thought were true and kind but instead I felt like I had to live up to a standard when I was with them. I felt I had to change myself for them. And in the end, I saw their true colours and understood that what I had gone through was NOT a true and real friendship.
In a society where peer pressure, stereotypes and standards are dominant, we try to fit in with the crowd and be someone who we aren’t just to have “kisses from the enemy” (Proverbs 27:6)
Isn’t is so much better and sweeter to have friends who cherish you, are loyal to you and are open and honest with you than to be lied to and pressured to stay in a ‘community’ of hate?
Learn to differentiate those who are Godly in your life sand steer away from those who are evil.
God Bless you 🙏❤️
Can we all just stop and appreciate that time in 2013 when Emrey (almost 3 years old) came up to me and asked if Jesus could give her her sins back. This was taken in April, so I can only assume that all the Easter talk had set her off. 🤣 #kidssaythedarndestthings#heisrisen
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God.”
What if the circumstances that trouble you never changed, but the way you perceive them did? Would the impact of you seeing good bring improvement and change and hope? Do not underestimate how a change in your perception can bring the positive change you never dreamed could be true.
And perhaps that’s where we should start—talking about how the act of believing in the good that is possible, even if you can’t see it yet—fuels wisdom, a clear mind toward seeing the problem with more understanding. For the problems you face represent problems of the heart. Problems with finances, or with relationships, or with lack of peace or kindness or justice all point to other issues much deeper. And I, God, want to go deeper with you, son . . . daughter. I want to help you to perceive a problem as more than a problem, but as an opportunity to invite me in. And let me lead.
In these problems, these struggles, I can bring wisdom, a new way of approaching what has been troubling you for so long. In this life, you have trouble, heartache, worry. But I am here to walk with you in each circumstance. You can trust me, turn to me, or you can continue to ignore my outstretched hand and go forward, on your own, completely alone. Consider this: your perception that you are not alone in your struggles—that I am with you—will not only bring clarity and hope to your hardship. It will also bring healing for your heart.
Each hardship you surrender to me will shape you into knowing me more. And knowing me more will bring the peace for which you have been searching all your life. So, shall we begin? Do you want to begin this day again? This is not a question of the will, but of the heart. Do you want me rewrite everything you see?
When your heart is surrendered to me, all the details of your life are different. Let me show you.
Two more people came today and made a decision to give their lives to Jesus, the only one who can save us. I’m so proud of these two and I am completely overwhelmed at what God is doing in the church right now! NEVER underestimate the power of prayer. Prayers have been answered and people have been coming left and right giving their lives to God. This youth has lit this church on fire while it was in a rough time, God called us while we were at Summer In The Son and he sent us out to work for him. This youth group is now stronger than its ever been and God is making an unbelievable movement in our church right now and it is amazing and nothing will ever stand in our way. There is NO PAST. NONE. That is too dark for the love of Jesus Christ. If you don’t have a church home, come hang with us on Sunday mornings at 11 AM. We would love to see you there and also if you haven’t made a decision to choose Jesus as your Lord and Saviour it’s not too late. There is no sin or guilty stain that can outrun His love. God is greater than everything on this Earth. Please come hang with us no matter what you’ve been through we’d love to have you #godisgreaterthan#spreadthegoodnews#bestdecisionever#godisgood#heisrisen
