Part 1

CHRIST CAME TO SET US FREE!

“It is for FREEDOM that CHRIST has set us FREE. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened with a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5

IF You really want healing to begin seek the LORD above ALL else. You cannot change what has been, but YOU CAN start afresh TODAY.

IF You want to start healing this next generation think about what you do and say in front of them. Apologize for what has been and help them get to a better place. It’s never too late to start anew.

IF You raised, or are raising your children by yelling, screaming and cussing at them guess what? They will probably do the same thing. They will seek to dominate and control others…

IF You hit them upside the head and slap them in the mouth; guess what? You are instilling anger within them. You are making them a slave to sin.

IF You are beating them to death; guess what? You are really, actually beating the natural life out of them. You are replacing it will stress, anger, hate, insecurity, and rage. You are actually shutting them down and causing them to become violent and pushing them towards seeking physical hitting and abusive ways that create even more inner conflict. To name a few; Alcohol, Drugs, Overeating, Undereating, Promiscuity, Homosexuality, Adultery, Fornication, Unfaithfulness, Stealing, Lying, Fighting, Violence are just a few of the results… Their way is now leaning to dominate and control rather than exercise Self-Control and become free!

IF You are calling them out of their name: guess what? You are helping them have an identity crisis… They will see themselves as you express yourself to them… Less than rather than equal too. Children are NOT your slaves and should not be treated as so regardless of race, creed or color…

You can become FREE! You can begin to heal your heart and home!

IF You have done none of the above; guess what? There is still room for self improvement.

There IS ALWAYS HOPE in the LORD! Together you can move toward healing.

“Greater IS HE that is within you than he that is in the world…”

PRACTICE MAKES PERMANENT!

REALLY SPEND SOME TIME WITH THE LORD IN HIS WORD!

EMBRACE THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD! PRAY WITHOUT CEASING & DRAW CLOSER TO THE LORD EVERYDAY. LEARN TO STAND UPON HIS WORD!

If You are NOW an ADULT; Learn to nurture & Grow up the child within YOU! RELEASE WHAT HAS BEEN TO MAKE ROOM FOR WHAT CAN BE… Seek to DISCIPLINE & CORRECT PROPERLY with PATIENCE rather than punish, reinforce and instill anger within others. The LORD created us to ENJOY life. He wants us to have a rich full life spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. God wants us to have a healthy balance in life.

Allow the inner child in you to have fun. There are many ways to have good wholesome fun. It could be as simple as taking a walk, reading a book, playing chess, a video game, or watching something funny or interesting on television, or taking a relaxing scenic drive. It could be something as difficult as climbing a mountain, parasailing, skiing, painting or… Just make sure that whatever you do remain focused, stay centered and yes keep Jesus with you.

It is important to work together to create a healthy home environment that works for You. I Personally have always in general been more of a homebody. Today you can work, run a company or business and do just about anything from home or a cell phone due to technological advancements… There are of course exceptions. I am content alone, with a few, many or in a crowd. We personally enjoy an active, multi functioning yet peaceful domicile. Your home should be the one place that you can be comfortable and free… It is important you or all of you together seek to make your home a place of comfort that welcomes healing…

Life is precious and I truly believe that everyday is a PRECIOUS GIFT from the LORD! Daily invite the presence of the Lord in and around you to allow the Lord His place in your life.

Always allow the adult in you to keep you responsible and disciplined. Don’t let others control you by remote. Self-Control is part of the Fruit of the Spirit. Always remember that God is Omniscient. You do not have to compromise who you are in Him in order to enjoy yourself and have fun. GOD did not SAVE US to be unhappy all the time. You can always find contentment and peace in the Lord! PRAISE GOD & THANK YOU LORD! Learn to “Guard Your heart!” Seek the Will & the Way of the Lord above all else. Healthy boundaries are important. Remember God is Omnipresent. He has given us HIS precious Holy Spirit to help us in any and all situations. Thank God for Christ Jesus!

PRAY for DISCERNMENT! For we live in a time when GOOD is called evil and evil is called GOOD! It is very important to stay in the WORD! God’s Word is necessary Spiritual Food for our souls!

KNOW this; Through CHRIST JESUS THERE IS VICTORY!

GOD is more than able. GOD wants us to become complete in Him! Begin to Allow the “JOY of the LORD to be your STRENGTH!” Take regular Spiritual Baths in HIS WORD! As You embrace its TRUTH you will discover that it is “Alive and Powerful!” Finding a balance is key… GOD can heal any heart and any home. Daily invite HIS presence in and around you. This also what builds HIS CHURCH. “We are HIS people and the sheep of HIS pasture… ” Know that as a Believer your body is the Temple of the Living God.

GOD CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE!

THERE IS ALWAYS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT!

As Believers know GOD has NO Grandchildren. So, it is never too late to learn. GOD can mend your broken heart. Correction is also a part of Love.

As long as HE has us on this side of HEAVEN it is to daily Grow in HIS LOVE, GRACE, WISDOM & KNOWLEDGE!

~ CHILDREN & PARENTS ~

CHILDREN OBEY YOUR PARENTS IN THE LORD, FOR THIS IS RIGHT!
“HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER” ~ WHICH IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT WITH PROMISE! THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH YOU AND THAT THEY MAY ENJOY LONG LIFE ON THE EARTH.

FATHERS DO NOT EXASPERATE YOUR CHILDREN; INSTEAD, BRING THEM UP IN THE TRAINING AND INSTRUCTION OF THE LORD…” EPHESIANS 6

If someone is caught in a sin you who are SPIRITUAL should seek to restore him (or her) gently…”Galatians 6

CHRIST JESUS CAME; THAT WE MIGHT HAVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE IN EVERY WAY; EVERYDAY; BLESS HIS HOLY NAME! FOR HE IS THE DAYMAKER and the WAY MAKER. HE IS ABSOLUTELY AWEWONDERFUL!!!

Did You Grow Up in the Church? Part 3

Did You Grow Up in the Church? Part 3

There really is a difference between being in the Church and the Church being in you? When the Church is in you the Holy Spirit becomes the governor of your soul. You live in the world, you are to be a law abiding citizen but you realize it is in God you move and live and have your being. You are convicted when wrong. You do not desire to be right just for the sake of being right.

The Church is not just a place to go. For you it is your daily lifestyle to live to please God!

This is not some unrealistic, legalistic, rigid, mythical, unattainable, cultic way of being. You realize how vitally important it is to live your life before the Lord. You know without a doubt that God is your Heavenly Father. That the devil his imps and no one or nobody can do anything to pluck you out God’s hands. That you truly belong to God and Jesus is your Lord and Savior! You have been adopted into His family and you know that you know that you know without doubting you are His child! You know what His Word says about being double minded?

Wait I must caution you! You must be aware that you will be thought of as strange and or self righteous by those who really do not know or understand you. They will even put you through their heart test. But, those who really know you know that you have been raised in the Church and the Church is in you. Go pluck some spiritual fruit and “pig out”. Especially try some of His good ole patience. Don’t go there; this not some egotistical, arrogant or prideful statement. (This was worth repeating in case you are only reading Part 3)

You see, there really is a difference when you are in the Church and the Church is in you. You know that you have been bought with a price. You know that before you were formed in your Mother’s womb God knew and knows who you are. You also know it is not because of anything you have or have not. It is because of who He is! You praise Him not only in the building; but you praise Him in your home, on your job or at your business in your car, in the midst of trials and persecution. Not just in mere lip service. You even know you have a right to a silent protest when necessary. You actually know and understand why others do not understand you. They have actually helped to strengthen your faith and trust in God. Especially when you know they have done everything possible to attempt to discourage you.

God is awesome! Standing for God does not mean resorting to carnality. Your confidence cannot be in you, are anything else. Yes, you can have confidence because you know God as your Father. You know that He knows you as His child. You know and He knows that you have spent some deep intimate time together in His presence. You know that He has set you free! You know that you have been raised in the church and the church is in you.

God really has a better way for His children. God is not a respecter of persons. It does not matter to Him if you are rich or poor, black, white, red, yellow, tan or brown. He already knows where you live, work, play or “hang out.” He even knows if you have been raised in the church and the church is not in you. He knows if you walk in the flesh or abide in His Spirit. If you truly invite Him into your heart today He will come in your life and make a real difference. As you begin to grasp His Word it will wash you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. He will also teach you how to guard your heart.

There are many wolves among the sheep. Don’t fret God always takes care of His children even in the midst of tests and trials. There are also those who call evil good and good evil. God will and can protect you and keep you from the grasp of wickedness. You must learn to humbly submit to His direction. He will open your spiritual eyes so you can begin to understand. No drugs, nicotine or alcohol needed. You will not want to see things as they appear. You will desire to see clearly. Your conscious will become sensitive and you will have a deepened desire to do what is right in His sight rather than in the sight of man. Realize that Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantlyin every way

God also said in the Book of John to “let not your heart be troubled.” The earth truly is the Lord’s. Truly He will take care of you. God already knows what is going on. Just begin to exercise patience. He will bring what happens in the dark to the light. Did you know you have as much time as you need to do the things that God would have you to do. Study the story of Gideon. He prevailed not because of how many he had to help him. The victory always belongs to God. It is not in the amount, how many are for you or against you. Nor in whoever rises up against you.

God will make it evident to you and those about you that it is only by His grace and mercy that you can truly be successful. Spiritual success is not in the numbers. Fewer travel the Narrow Path. God knows when you have been raised in His Church and His Church is in you. “He leads me in the Path of Righteousness for His Namesake. Yea though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death I WILL fear NO evil. For THOU art with me. THY ROD & STAFF THEY COMFORT me…” Psalms 23 Grace, Joy, Love & Peace to you in Jesus Name! If you really want to be happier, Live Everyday: “To God be the Glory!”

Embracing the Fruit of the Spirit within your marriage “Goodness” Part 6

Embracing the Fruit of the Spirit within your marriage “Goodness”

Couple in Grass

Part 6

Did you know that marriage is a sacred, intimate, holy relationship sanctioned by God between a man and a woman? After God created everything and saw that it was good; God saw that the man He had made did not have a helpmeet. The animals, the beasts of the field, the livestock, as well as the birds of the air all had someone to be with… See Genesis 1 for more information.

Adam was alone as a man without someone to help him and spend time with on a human level that he could relate to personally. He too needed someone to be by his side. God had compassion upon Adam. This is what He did; “So God caused Adam to fall in a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib He had taken out of the man, and brought her to the man.” Genesis 1. It is here that we get a comprehensible picture of God’s original design for marriage. Out of His goodness and love! God created marriage as a gift to Adam & Eve!

Adam and Eve were naked and they were not ashamed! At this time they were perfect for one another This is before they sinned and decided to instead disobey God and do their own thing. God gives us all free choice! Adam & Eve is the model template for marriage His way! He is the original designer and knows what is best for the man and woman He created. Marriage is serious business. Your marriage will be whatever you together decide to make it!

The goal of marriage is to experience the ultimate oneness that is possible between a man and a woman! Man and woman’s physical structures are anatomically and emotionally designed to fit together as one! Within the context of marriage they are to learn how to meet one another’s need for physical sexual intercourse within the boundaries of marriage! Reproduction and pleasure are possible which usually involves penetration as their sexual organs are joined together. Although sex happens quite often outside of marriage it is not sanctioned by God!

Adam and Eve were joined together and they were not ashamed. They had no limitations on their ability to flourish and grow until they decided to do their own thing. The good thing about marriage, this is where the man and woman can build physical and emotional intimacy in a lifetime committed relationship. Although many marriages in excess of 55% now result in divorce this is not what God intended. “Haven’t you read in the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said; ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two shall become one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19. Marriage between a man and woman in the eyes of God is good!

Take some time and look deeper into the WORD! When the LORD made the Man HE also made the Woman. He actually later took the rib bone of the Man He created and formed the Woman. This is why she is called “Bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh…” This is why it should be a natural desire to be together as one. Not only physically, but spiritually and mentally as well. This is why we anatomically fit together as one because we were made as one. There is power in unity when you allow the LORD HIS PLACE within your marriage, heart and home!

This is also why there is so much spiritual warfare to try and undermine GOD’S DESIGN for Man & Woman. Marriage is the 1st and only relationship design for “HOLY MATRIMONY” honored by GOD! Everything that GOD made was GOOD The spiritual warfare is designed to pervert everything GOOD that comes from the LORD!

THE LORD IS AWESOME! This is why it is so important to read & know HIS timeless WORD! As you read HIS LIVING WORD ask HIS HOLY SPIRIT to open up your understanding and reveal TRUTH! HIS WORD is necessary SPIRITUAL FOOD for our souls!

Today in this 21st century many marriages are falling short of God’s design, but this has not changed His original intentions. God designed marriage to be indissoluble! The pressures of society continue to press upon many to once again “do their own thing!” Please think long and hard before you commit or break your commitment to your marriage. There is much spiritual warfare to split apart marriages, to sow discord among spouses and families and disrupt God’s design for life and living. There are spiritual consequences that are not always apparent… So please be sure when you decide to say “I Do!” If not it is a good thing to remain single if you are not sure or have serious doubts! However it is your choice to have whatever type of relationship(s) you desire…

It is important to spend time with God to better understand His plan for your life.!

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, are all aspects of the Fruit of God’s Spirit! Loyalty, commitment, dedication, monogamy and integrity are some of the many components of a good marriage as well. We can experience unity and empowerment within our marriages as we rely on God’s principles for marriage. Relying on our own wisdom and the ways of the world often increases the risk of relinquishing the plan that God has for our lives! God is faithful! Faithfulness is the next part of the Fruit of God’s Spirit that we will discuss…
