“WHO SAID THAT?”

“I Break All Curses By Satan’s Agents Spoken Against  My Life In The Name Of Jesus.”                     Psalm 10:7

“I don’t think he really Loves me”  …,  “there’s nothing ‘special’ about me” …,  “nobody will ever want me”…, “I could Never achieve that” …,  “I’m not Smart-Enough” …,  “I’m not worthy!!”

Condemnation is from the enemy.  Whereas, Conviction is ‘gift’ from the Holy Spirit.  The enemy seeks a crevice to entertain your mind with  hurtful, hateful, angry thoughts. Conversely, Jesus Christ wants you to reign in his footsteps and remain confident as his chosen child!  He wants you/me to know he sees us as “the ‘apple of his eye”,

Our enemy will cause you to doubt; he will devise evil schemes and plant negative, ugly thoughts to twist your mind.    Will you fall prey to his trickery?

Consider the self-doubt Satan wants to hedge into your mind.  “What has happened to me, you ask yourself?!”   “Was that me?”  “Who Said That?”

Why have the lies of Satan been able to take-up residence in people’s intellect and affect their lives?  Undoubtedly, the fallen angel has been working in their lives for months, maybe years.

Just as a mouse squeezes through any minuscule crack, the devil seeks any weakness in you he can find.  Then, bam … he’s in!  Our adversary’s deceptions sow self-pity that crushes the spirit and develops into bitterness of heart.  That IS his offensive job!  You have heard it said, “Satan IS the Father of lies.”  How true!

8 Be Alert and of Sober Mind. Your Enemy the Devil Prowls Around like a Roaring Lion Looking For Someone to Devour.  9 Resist Him, Standing Firm in the Faith,  Because you Know That The Family of Believers Throughout the World are Undergoing the Same Kind of Sufferings.” I Peter 5:8

You mean I am supposed to be grateful and think “conviction” is really a ‘gift?”  Well ~ you tell me; Do you REALLY Believe God’s promises are for you?   Do you want Freedom and the calmness found in rational, consistent, meditations?  You CAN Control your thoughts.  When you are overwhelmed and feel like you are in a battle with a negative thought, try to replace that ‘junk’ with the Power given to us in his
Promises/Scriptures.  (thus, the importance of learning and memorizing Scripture.)     Then, you will clearly hear:  “WHO SAID THAT!”

God doesn’t want us to be an emotional frazzled mess.  He wants us to know WHO we are in him and walk in his comfort reconciled to receive his crowning glory and surrounded by his prosperous favor.

“We are so lucky.”   “Just think about it.”    “WE ARE HIS CHOSEN … WOW!!”                  Now, that makes this girl feel pretty darn ‘Special!’  HE ACTUALLY LOVES ME!  HE LOVES YOU TOO!

(you know something, this ‘platform’, (my WordPress Blog) is Healing me from the inside … out!)  and I sure hope I am able to reach and touch the Hearts of my readers!  I have always given God the glory for anything I manage to compose.  (I KNOW he gives me the words to write, it isn’t just me!) No way!

My Prayer:  Father God, guide us through the tangled maze our enemy creates for our confusion.  Blot out the enemy’s schemes and lead us to daily gain clarity to see the wisdom and truth in your words.  We Pray for your loving discipline to keep us from straying from your path as we know “you  have prepared ye the way” for each one of your sheep.  We ask for divine focus as we study your word.  Walk with us through the pages of your Holy Bible so we may really digest Scriptures.  Grant us the gift to “hide your word in our Heart.”

“THE ELDERLY GENTLEMAN”

7-4-2016 ~ The Elderly Gentleman

Several months ago, I was most blessed and fortunate to secure a volunteer position with a large local hospital.

Recently, I was enjoying regular daily events as duties were fairly ‘routine’, that is for most of the day.  Then, an elderly man came up to our station.

In a few short-minutes, my ‘routine duties’ were unpredictably changed; and, little did I know just how welcome the change was to become.  A tall, thin, elderly gentleman seemed barely able to walk over to our work area.  He asked, “can anyone help me to my car?

“I think maybe I need a wheel-chair!”

I quickly volunteered to help the older gentleman, as waves of compassion quickly flooded my tender heart.  (it was plainly obvious he needed me; and as it ended, I needed him too!)

He said, “I think I can make it to that chair over there. (I wondered ~ in his dignified manner, was he trying to maintain his ‘pride’?)

I helped him get safely seated and off we strolled to the parking garage.  He informed me, “it’s a quite a piece down there little lady … are you sure you want to do this?”  I assured him, “it’s no trouble and that he shouldn’t think twice about my ‘choice’ to help him as I was most Happy to assist.”

We had gone about half of the distance through the long, concrete, parking garage, and he INSISTED he could probably “make it the rest of the way.”  (silently, to myself, I was thankful it was an inside, covered garage.)

Then, he exclaimed, “there it is ~ it’s that old white truck with the blue tailgate!”

For his safety, I maneuvered the wheelchair right up to his door so all he would need do was to stand and scoot himself into his truck.  He lifted himself up and got in his vehicle.

As I turned to quietly walk away, he said, “I KNOW this wasn’t in your job description … so I’m certain you didn’t need to do this; but, I just want to say, “GOD BLESS YOU LITTLE LADY!”

He had tears welling-up in his eyes as I left to go back to my station.  (me too)

—————————————————————————————————–

In purposely “offering” to do this assignment, I had visions of my own elderly Father, of eighty-seven.  I sure hope and pray someone would come to Daddy’s aid if and when he might also need the support and assistance.

Although it was “quite a piece” as he put it – our walk that day, was the best, longest walk I have ever enjoyed!

Growing In Christ,

Jennifer

Dedicate Your Life

The disciple, Luke said:  “I Will Always Pray ~ I Don’t Ever give Up!”  Luke 18:1

Before my day begins, I choose to start each day on my knees in Prayer, so I’ll send that sentiment along to you too.  This sacred  habit saturates my soul and affords a  meaningful opportunity for gaining a true sense of calmness – and a ‘Peace’ found through Prayer.

Try to dedicate at least 1-hour to DAILY Prayer with your Heavenly Father.

HE is your provider!

All ‘worry’ will accomplish in our lives is more stomach problems, sleepless nights where we ‘wrangle’ (fight our emotions), and toss-and-turn, adding stress, gray-hair, and wrinkles.   Ultimately, all worry does is it give control of our life to the enemy/devil, (which is what he wants).

Please Meditate (chew-on) these Scriptures:

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”             John 10:10

“Take Captive EVERY Thought and Make It O b e d i e n t to Gods Word.”               II Corinthians 10:5

If  negative thoughts or images come  into your head, please know those thoughts were not planted in your Heart by our Wonderful Abba Daddy. He Loves you w- -a- y too much to put ‘hateful’, ‘hurtful’ ‘downer’, thoughts in your Mind! (THAT’S the work of the enemy! (he’s trying to get you to ‘think’ negative junk!)

REFUSE to take the bait!

(The enemy is just trying to find a ‘weak-spot’ in You, then he’ll go to work; and he will WORK on you until he’s succeeds, or fails.)

“Submit to God, RESIST the enemy and he WILL Flee.” James 4: 7 & 8

God’s word says in Isaiah 61:1 (Isaiah speaking: “The Lord has sent me to Speak Good News To The Poor.” “He has sent me to Bind-Up The Broken-Hearted, Proclaim Healing And Freedom For Captives, and To Proclaim That THIS Is The Year Of The Lord’s Favor.”

(The Apostle Paul, who started as one of Christianity’s most zealous enemies, was hand-picked by Jesus Christ to become the gospel’s most ardent messenger.):

“I CAN Do ALL Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me.” Philippians 4:13
