Jesus Quenches the Fire

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 –

What are you and God working out?

I always say something like this to friends while I keep involving myself in a struggle with God: “Ya, I’m struggling with this, but God is working with me on it. We are working it out.”

Face to Face

Last week as I lay down to sleep, I heard as loud as day in my head “August 8th”. No clue where it came from, it just popped into my head. I was like “Um, ok? It must be important.”

Then, over the past couple of days, I’ve been drawing in to the Lord. I’ve been realizing that He’s been guiding me deeper with Him, but I have taken little action. Today, I was reading my Oswald Chambers daily devotion and I decided to skip ahead to August 8th and 9th. Boy, did this speak –

Placing every thought into captivity

Taken from a Rick Warren Daily Devotional – “The fruit of the Spirit begins in your thought life. The seeds must be planted in your mind: The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act.”

One area that has been a topic for me lately is placing every thought into captivity with Christ.  Read more…
