Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
I took notes and present a digested sermon by our guest speaker Justin King
We Grow as More Light Comes through Study and Relationship with God
As a new babe in Christ there
are various patterns of growth.Some are
still fighting battles they are finding it difficult to win.
Know that Salvation is often in steps.I was saved when I came to Jesus, I am being
saved as I follow Christ, and finally I will be saved when I meet him in heaven.
There are physiological wars
in the minds of many Christians.The
reason many are not where they are supposed to be is unconfessed sin still
hanging on and they are in denial.1 John 1:9 If we confess our
sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness.
we admit that we have a need, confess and know if we ask; God does forgive and
flesh tries to be dominate, and Jesus should be first in our life as we are led
by the Holy Spirit.
wonder why “church” isn’t functioning as it should.The reason is our walk must be examined
and changes made.What we say must
reflect on how we live.
not we need to back up and renew our mind with God’s Word.Study and learn what God expects of you.Make a decision to walk with Jesus.
stress of life can hinder us when we fail to trust God and listen to the Holy
Spirit as He speaks to us.
I Thessalonians 5:5 You are all
sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.19 Do not quench
the Spirit. 20 Do not
despise prophecies. 21 Test all
things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from
every form of evil.
do you call yourself?Be that
person.When we are proud and boastful,
allow God to show us how to be humble.
wonder why miracles aren’t happening.We
must draw closer to Jesus and walk holy before him.When God does the work it will happen and
remain.When man uses psychology or the
power of suggestion it will fail.
relationship with God will bring results.Paul said, “Fast and pray” to get the flesh and the “old man” under.
who Christ is IN you.Your position with
Christ is you are seated with Him in heavenly places.
are not effective if the Holy Spirit is lacking in our lives.Know who you are IN Christ.Confess with your mouth, “I am worthy, I am
holy, I am the righteousness of Christ, I am full of Love, faith, peace and
Joy.Confess and possess.
to what we know and how we allow the Holy spirit to guide us is important.
is rich in mercy and He loves us so much.It is by His favor that we are saved as we trust in Christ to maintain
can let shame and guilt block our walk with God.Realize that the blood of Jesus covers and
removes guilt and shame.
designed us to have fellowship with Him.Allow God to reveal to you and make you aware of areas that need the
Holy Spirit to touch and make you whole.
God is not finished with you yet,
so let him continue to reveal Himself to you.
There I was working on my lesson for Wednesday and my black ink ran dry. I needed to print the hand outs for our prayer meeting the next day; and as I went to change the ink in my computer, all I had was colored ink and no black. What to do? So I loaded up my dogs and we drove to Wal-Mart as they now sell ink.
While shopping, I noticed a young Asian couple and the wife was carrying their baby. Suddenly she began to buckle up and fall, as the gentleman grabbed the baby. A woman near by, took the child from him so he could attend to his wife on the floor.
I stopped to watch and really didn't gather all my wits about me except - - - I slowly and quietly moved over to where she lay, and placed my hand on her bended knee, and spoke; "Strength Come."
Soon she was able to sit but I told her husband not to get her up too quick because she needed some time to recover herself and rest a bit.
Then I went on. Now pay attention for this is a lesson for you on how our Enemy comes to bring condemnation telling you that you did not do enough, and you could have done more. - -
While I was driving home, Satan, planted thoughts in my mind: "She needed something to eat and you had soda crackers in your purse, saved from last time you had soup with Ruby. You should have seen that she got a drink of water."
That was true, I did have crackers in my purse, but at the time they were far from my mind, and I did not consider giving her water at the time.
Yes, all that was true, but even though the devil is a liar, he can use truth to beat you over the head.
I did NOT need to repent, because I did what I was led to do at the time, and I believe I did the right thing. So I am at peace. However, I do trust she is doing okay now.
