We are Nothing

Today I had some realizations. God is so good to give understanding in kindness and love. I was listening to a sermon when I was prompted with the question at what point do you trust anything that is you???  The Bible states that the heart deceives and we are to never lean on our own understanding. From the tongue comes the the true heart, yet the tongue tells lies. The Word of God states that it is better to cut of the hand if it is in sin. Now that doesn’t mean chop off body parts, it means that it is better to go without than to sin. We are to do only TWO things, OBEY God and to TRUST Him. There is nothing that can hurt, destroy, upset, or bind you when you simply do these two things. I recently lost my fiance, and since I have had many heartbreaks and disappointment in my life and since Shane was taken home to Heaven. Create the habits that exude TRUST and OBEDIENCE to God. Stay humble and broken before God. He seems to keep bringing me back to this point over and over. No matter your status, no matter your position in life God can keep you humble in so many ways. I find that the more He stands strong with me, the more things I realize He is humbling me. God is so good. Life with Him is a choice. You have only ONE free will in this life. TO FOLLOW JESUS OR NOT. Subsequently, every choice after that falls only under one of these two categories. Nothing about you is for you. Your entire body can deceive you and trick you. That is why we must TRUST and OBEY on God MORE than you want to have something, or do something, or give up, or cave in, or breakdown.

 

In humility I bow, because Your love comes wave after wave. Crashing over me crashing over me. You are for us, You are not against us. Champion of Heaven You made a way for all to enter in. You make me Brave. You make me Brave. You call me out beyond the shore into the waves. You make me brave,  no fear can hinder now the promises You made a way. You make me brave, You make me brave.

 

God I love You, I worship You Jesus with all that I have inside of me. Every single beat of my heart, breath in my lungs, and fiber of my being belongs to You. I thank You for Your provisions and care, and the grace and mercy and love you show me daily. Without You I am nothing. I need You every second of the day and night until You take me home. Thank You Jesus, thank You Father, thank You Holy Spirit. In Jesus Holy and Precious name, AMEN!

Verse of the Day

Jeremiah 17:5

5 This is what the LORD says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD.

I’m up. .. can’t really sleep.  Body is exhausted but my mind is sparked with excitement. So many things, progress and future.  Jesus and blessing.  Truth and lie. I struggle with things. … walking in faith is way easier said than done at times. Shane used to tell me all the time, “anything worth anything is something you have to fight for.” This means future,  prosperity,  families,  relationships, jobs,  time, ect….. freedom.  What is freedom? Most of us work to live, survive, and support our families. Seeking the next pay raise to upgrade our  social status. The same goes for most of us spiritually.  I once used to think that I was the real deal.  Oblivious to the reality of being in a cage. Wondering why I was having the same issues and problems and worries and fears.  I was stuck in my incorrect ways.  Even if a few things were correct and other things were off that made EVERYTHING wrong. Something I heard once was this, ” if my husband called me I would know it was him without asking who was calling. Because I spend so much time with him I know his voice. This is also how I know God’s voice.” Grasp that. Meditate on it.  Do you know God’s voice? Know His voice when He guides you, and you’ll know it if you gone Him time and ready His Word.
