Here is a play by play battle that is going on for this mind and the fade that I have been writing about. I’m at the brink of fading and spiraling downward, but He says “Endure!” I’m at the moment of all moments – Choice. Either I’m going to sink in the water or continue walking on the water with Jesus Christ. This is a personal witnessing of this mind, emotions, and the battle. It is ultimately my choice to believe in the things of this world or believe in Him. Thoughts are coming in from 2 different angles: One is of the world (deception, which is resulting in negative emotions) and the other is the Sword of the Spirit (Truth, which is in-line with the Word of God, resulting in joy, peace and contentment).
Whichever one I succumb to will determine if my next step will be on the water or if I sink into the water. To give myself and any readers a good understanding, I’m first going to dig into the Word and see what God says about this intellect. I’m feeling led to research the issue of heart. I know I have journaled about this in the past, but it is so important in the midst of a battle to get into the Word. I pray this helps anyone else that may experience this as well. In Jesus name, amen.
Most of the time I have sought out the Lord pertaining to guidance in life, He responds with Trust and Faith. The recent postings show me how God has not changed this teaching throughout my Christian walk, it is almost always the same guidance. Since the last posts, the messages have continued down the same line, Faith. But, they are now going a step further – Enduring in Faith. I pray this message blesses you and that His seed is glorified through abundant fruit. In Jesus name, amen. –
The Lord has taught me some further understanding about walking in faith, whereas I once thought that a Blind Step of Faith was incorrect. Faith believes in the unseen, walking in faith, not by sight. It’s a hope for something that is not yet – believing in the promises of God. Holding fast to the thing that is afar off and trusting that God is with me. Thank you Lord for opening my mind and teaching me about walking in faith. I pray that this post will help any readers.. and I pray that it is written on my heart, in Jesus name. Amen. –
The current guidance from God is continuing down the same path today. The overall message is: being conquerors, in-Christ, through whatever storms we may be addressed with. Quenching the fires, calming the storms, winds, and waves of life. Lord, thank you for being you and fulfilling your promises. Thank you for being trustworthy and faithful to your Word. As it is written, you cannot deny yourself, your Word, your promises… Praise the Lord my Rock! In your name Jesus, Amen.
Whenever I diligently seek after His guidance, He rewards as He says in Hebrews. Praise God Almighty –
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
This testimony of God answering prayers for guidance started in yesterday’s post, Jesus Quenches the Fire. In this post, Faith Calms the Storm, God is continuing this guidance. I know He has revealed this same lesson in the past, and here I am again. Learn the lesson or retake the course Joseph! It can get frustrating sometimes to repeat these lessons because I just want to walk in what He shows, 100% of the time. Tiller of the hearts, please prepare my heart so that your precious seeds can be planted on fertile soil, never to be stolen, never to fade.. Help me with constant ministering. I need continual Food, Light, and Water for the increase Lord. I pray for the increase that you promise. Help me Helper. Help all of us. Your Word says that it will not return to you void and it will do what it is purposed to do. I take my claim as a joint heir in-Christ and not only for myself, but for any saints that you have guided to this post, in Jesus name. Amen
The current state of my being here on earth is going through another trial by fire that Jesus can quench if I surrender to Him. Either I will dwell on my own reasoning to get through this or I can go to God Almighty. In the former, I will basically act as a god and determine the path for this temple. Thus, I quench the real Spirit and accept a focus of self. In the latter, when the tables are turned, I will quench the self and allow the true God into this temple for guidance, Jesus Christ.
This testimony is about getting out of myself, turning to God, and then witnessing God’s guidance in this fiery furnace. Deliverance is around the corner because Jesus is the Living Water that quenches the fire of the enemy. I pray this blesses you, in Jesus name. Amen –
This is amazing. A man, who was agnostic, contacted me. He was an old friend that I haven’t seen in 20 or so years. He wanted to meet with me as he traveled through Lansing on his way home. We sat down and had coffee. This is a testimony of God’s saving grace. All I can say is hallelujah –
Here is a testimony I received from a sister in-Christ. God is good. I pray this encourages the Body to trust in the Lord in all things. In Jesus name, amen –
“Normally I have two appointments with God every day. Today I missed my evening appointment and started working on computer. It did not start. It was fine this morning. I was trying and trying. It did not start. Suddenly..It came to my mind that I did not meet with the Lord and God is waiting to talk. I stopped every thing and started praising for my day and talked to Lord.
Surprise!! Computer worked right after that. God is never delayed. God is on time and never forgets the given appointment. Also the Lord knows we are weak and forgetful. Yet the Lord is merciful. Thank you my Lord!!”
Praise God, thank you Lord for your testimonies.
