It is as simple as humbling yourself before the Almighty God and Savior, Confessing your sins, Asking for forgiveness, And wholeheartedly desire to serve Him, So that He can grant you Mercy and Grace, Forgiveness and a New Life In Him.
If you have not asked the Lord Jesus to help you live out your life, and have been struggling all these years, relying only on yourself and proud, unrepentant, sinful men, What are you waiting for?
GO to Him. TODAY. Start a brand new day with a Brand New Life in Jesus Christ. You will NEVER be the same again.
Ezra the scribe sought the Lord to do His will. He studied, prayed, memorized His Word, and then taught it to the people. Even the Persian king Artaxerxes recognized the Spirit of God within Ezra, and decreed that what Ezra needed for his people, it should be done. Also, that Ezra should set magistrates and judges over the people, and he himself teach the people what they do not know (Ez 7:21, 25).
We would do very well to read the life of Ezra, and follow his lead in how he spent time getting to know the LORD God, reading and studying His Word, praying, and then taking the Word of God to the people, to teach and preach it to them.
Having the Word of God in your mind and heart (Ps. 119:9-11) is a very good thing these days. It is what keeps me in perfect peace (Is. 26:3), even during such evil days as we are living in.
When the enemy tries to get a foothold in my life, I quickly rebuke the evil ones with Scripture I have memorized, or go to the Word and start speaking it out, to extinguish the fiery darts (Eph. 6:16) that the enemy shoots onto the battlefield (my mind).
Yes, the hand of God can work for good in all souls that allow the Triune Godhead into their lives.
If one does not have the Spirit of God living and working in them, then as it is written, “the wrath of God abides in him” (Jn. 3:36).
Decide for yourself just who you will serve in this life (Joshua 24:15); for it WILL determine where you end up in Eternity.
My new illustrated devotional is now LIVE on Amazon! I used a beautiful picture for the cover, and you will find many other colorful pictures with Scriptures and inspirational quotes on each of the pages with the devotionals.
The book can be purchased through Amazon in either hardcover, paperback, or Kindle format.
This book would make a beautiful gift for someone, and the devotionals are no more than a 5-10 minute read. It is a great way to start your day, during a mid-day break, or before you settle in for the night, to read a little bit of Scripture, then meditate and pray on it.
I hope you will check it out! I do also have the first of my three book series, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH” for sale. The 12-month devotional is based off of my first year and a half of my faith journey, with Scripture verses that stood and spoke out to me during that time. Just look up the above mentioned title and “12 Month Devotional” to find it.
I am trying to hopefully finish the second of my three-book faith journey series (the subtitle will be, “A Season of Trials, Temptations and (Many!) Tears”), before the end of this month, especially before my fall grad classes start again. Once they do, that takes up most of my time and energy. I will make another post when the book is available.
Thank you so much in advance if you do go ahead and purchase any of my books; right now, it is my only income because of the amount of schoolwork I have to endure. But I realize the more I write, the more I am enjoying it. It definitely is proving to be something the Lord wanted me to do all along—I just did not initially think I had it in me to write a book, and now I just completed my third one; amazing what a person can do when they allow the Spirit to move within them and use the gifts that He gives to us. Not only does it end up blessing me and honoring Him, but it also blesses those who read the books and get inspired and encouraged by them. God bless!
