Equal balance

And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. (Hebrews 6:15)


In God's Word, you will take in that you are to patiently wait on God, and you will also take in, that God is saying to move, to act, to believe enough to get moving.


Once upon a time, I only waited and never daringly through my faith moved. Now I'm all about moving, and being daring. The desire of God for us, from both ways of looking to Him, is to patiently wait for Him to say it's time to act now. I'm steadily learning this.


Equal balance is the key *I'm in prayer for this, and need prayer for this*

God bless you all.


"I swear by myself, declares the lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld...I will surely bless you..." (Genesis 22:16-17 broken down to emphasize point being made)

Addictions

This morning I had the great pleasure to have these words said to me 'You are obsessed! You are addicted to Twitter and facebook. You are addicted.'


I responded with this 'I'm not addicted. They're many people I speak to. Ministry doesn't stop.' Praise God!


The words directly above are straight up from the Lord as He said to the Pharisees (Religious leaders of Law in those times) 'But Jesus replied, "My Father is always working, and so am I."' (John 5:17) Amen!


So, this is what the Lord placed into me. Paul's words as he quoted Isaiah, and Hosea. Love it!


1 Corinthians 15:53-58

53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, ( Isaiah 25:8) this Scripture will be fulfilled:

"Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?" (Hosea:13:14)

56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.


*The above verses, show what a good addiction will result in.*


So, I thought of how we all have addictions, and they are either good or bad addictions. You may ask, how are addictions good or bad? Anything that produces complete peace is good, and anything that produces stress is bad.


Here are my addictions: Always for the Glory of the Father, the good of the Kingdom of heaven; the Good News of Christ the Lord!, and the good for all mankind. Amen!


•I am addicted to oxygen. Without it I will surely die.

•I am addicted to God, and His free gift of Grace. Without Him, I will surely die!

•I am addicted to the Lord Jesus, and His example of Truth and Love. Without Him, I will surely die!

•I am addicted to the free gift of the Holy Spirit in receiving and declaring, that Jesus is Lord! and my personal Savior, and Savior for all. Without Him, I will not know my Lord, and my great Father; my God, and I will surely die!

•I am addicted to the call, to Obey my God, follow my Lord Jesus, and Shepherd His children. Without this purpose, I will surely die! For apart from the Lord Jesus, from the Grace of God, I can DO NOTHING! Amen!


What are your addictions, and do they produce good or bad results? *Food for thought*


God bless you ALL,
To God be the Glory! Forever!


In God's love,
Flavio.

A sinner's prayer for Salvation

If you are feeling a nudge in your heart that has you knowing there is more, and something is missing from your life, and a voice in your heart is speaking lightly to you saying 'I'm what you are missing. It's time,' then I invite you to pray this prayer for Salvation quietly and sincerely:

Lord Jesus. I repent of my sins. Come into my heart. Wash me clean. I make you my Lord & Savior. Amen.


The Bible teaches that once you have embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior over your entire life, all of heaven applauds you.


I don't know if you ever received or witnessed a standing ovation, but it's overwhelming. Just imagine, heaven applauding for you and your decision right now.


Im so proud of you for your decision. God bless you.


If you prayed this, will you contact me at mightymanof_god@yahoo.com? Thanks!

Weakness into His Victory: To the dogs

Luke 6:37-38 (New International Version, ©2010)

Judging Others

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."


I read these words and I can't help to be convicted by them. When looking to humanbeings we can easily apply these words of orderly living, but even animals shouldn't be judged, condemned, and should be forgiven.

Today, I allowed my situation, surrounding, and circumstance to get the better of me, so when I went to let my mother's dogs out, I yelled at them, because they went crazy from their barking due to their excitement to go outside.

It's humbling to have God's Light shine on you as a spotlight to a prisoner, saying 'If I have not judged harshly on you. If I have not condemned you by your unruly behavior. If I have forgiven your outburst, why don't you do the same?'

It's those things in our lives, and those individuals we may simply disregard because they are not in our lives in a moment-to-moment basis, but that's when God will also say "Uphold my ways."

I thank the Lord for calming me with such beautiful words, and allowing me to share and confess my weakness for today in this moment in order to embrace Him, and His ways as my strength.


I steadily look to God to strengthen and instruct me to be the Environment, and not become my environment.

Now, I will go and apologize to all the dogs...they do understand :)


God bless you all
