This verse came to me this morning, (1 John 4:4)Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
God has always been the beginning and the end, we get so lost in society, this world, we forget that our flesh is so weak, so venerable and easy to sway, but when we let the Holy Spirit take control of our every move, thought, our tongues, our decisions, our actions, surrender our soul to the Holy Spirit, we no longer conform to this sick world, we shine a light that makes others wonder why we are so unusual, why we share a love so rare of the purest form that most seek their whole lives, why we walk boldly in confidence, why we do not have a doubt crossing our mind that we are serving (John 14:6) "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
(Galatians 5:16)"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." It's NOT impossible to live a straight a narrow path, it is NOT impossible to make that difference no matter where you have been in your past, no matter how far you have sinned, don't believe satan when he tells you that you have gone too far, if you have a burning desire to make a change and turn to Jesus, there is NO trick to it, He is waiting for you, He's arms are wide open for you, Ask the Holy Ghost to live within you, surrender yourself, feel the showers of supernatural love flow onto you, feel His strong presence in that room you are in now, feel the warm ongoing fire burn within you, feel your heart being cleansed, feel the reality of that moment and make it permanent....
I have been lost for far too long, I have let myself go so far out of reach from the only truth I have ever known, I have been so blessed with great, precious undeserving grace from our beautiful Father. STOP trying to get back on track with your own strength, YOU'LL FAIL, ask the Holy Spirit to take over, surrender your strength, your being, your will and let Him work within you my friends, we are lead to believe that we can do it on our own, IT'S A LIE!!! Give ALL of you!!! Our problems began when we separated from God. Like the prodigal son (Luke 15), we’re all too eager to escape our Father’s authority to be independent, proof ourselves and feel strong enough to spread our wings and fly. But when we try to make it on our own, we discover that we can’t really find the right way. The things we pursue pass away, or may end up doing more harm than good. We discover the limits of our own resources: strength, energy, ability, and understanding. With no way out, we realize our need for God--for His mercy, love, guidance, and life. In fact, God has had all these in store for us from the very beginning. He’s only waiting for us to return to Him. If you want to know where your life is headed, now and after death, you need to return to the source. You need to return to God. (1 Corinthians 2:14) The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
Why do you need the Holy spirit? Many of you think you know what it means to have the Holy Spirit, let me tell you, I only found the great meaning and understanding to this after reading a great book which I recommend highly by Benny Hinn "Good Morning Holy Spirit". Living in today’s society is not easy. You may be cleansed by the blood of Jesus, but how are you going to keep clean? The world is full of wrongdoing, perversion, and misguided ideas. People are driven by their desires. It’s a struggle to walk in Christ’s footsteps when those around you are going in the opposite direction. He works to transform our lives so that we can overcome the temptations of the flesh and live a fruitful life (Romans 8:13), And the Holy Spirit sets us apart as God’s holy people, sanctifying us and sealing us until the day we enter God’s heavenly kingdom (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Ephesians 1:13-14).
If you have been feeling empty, broken, hopeless, insecure, unworthy, unloved, unhappy and tried most things to find some joy in your life, my friend you have been lied to, you have been deceived, there is ONLY ONE WAY AND THAT WAY IS JESUS!!! Change your life TODAY, what are you waiting for? I have believed all of Satan's deceitful beautiful empty lies for far too long, today I say NO MORE! I am surrendering... I give all of me over to what I KNOW is TRUE, what is REAL and the ETERNAL LIFE!!! I am letting that change be made in me!!!! "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (II Corinthians 5:17) "And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them" (Ezekiel 36:27).
Most of you will judge me for backsliding, most of you will read this post and have the worst to say about this, many of you will read the first line and decide to skip reading it at all in disbelief, many will judge Christians based on my back and forth failure, I want you all to know that I forgive you for any negative words you may have about it. I have made and am still making many mistakes, I am NOT perfect, in fact I am very far from being perfect but this will be the last of that convenient excuse most of us use "backslide". NO, it will not be an over night fix, NO it will NOT be easy, BUT I can assure you that I have NO intention on giving up, I have NO intention on letting this truth slip my life again, I hold Victory within me "Holy Holy Holy Spirit" I am claiming joy, happiness, REAL, TRUE AND PURE love, I claim the truth in my life and I claim an eternal LIFE today.
God is holy, so He expects His children to be holy. (I Peter 1:16) says, "Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy." To be "holy" is to be WHOLE, to be pure and blameless before God. It is to lack nothing in God's sight. A Christian is not just a "sinner saved by grace," as most teach. A Christian in the Bible is a disciple. "...And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." (Acts 11:26) A disciple of Jesus Christ is one who has been disciplined to FOLLOW Jesus Christ. We have been called to live HOLY LIVES, just as our Lord lived a holy life.
I Have Overcome the World - (John 16:33)
"I told you these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have trouble. But be brave! I have defeated the world!" Jesus never said that it would be an easy life BUT he did leave us with God's greatest gift unto man (2 Corinthians 5:5) He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. God assured us in such a beautiful and precious way not to be concerned about the world's hatred for us If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of this world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (Jn 15:18-19) , My eye's fill with tears when I read that verse, "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of this world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." (Jn 15:18-19) He knew the persecution and suffering we would face for the sake of His Name. He knew that it was important for them to have the abidance of His power. , it's beyond anyone's understanding that such love can exist, BELIEVE IT! HE LOVES AND ADORES YOU AND ALL OF YOUR IMPERFECTIONS, YOU are worth this fight, YOUR name is being called, YES YOU!!!!!
SURRENDER YOUR WEAK FLESH, THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE!!!!
God bless you my friends.
