When I say I’m an absolute product of God’s Grace and Mercy, I mean it. Although painful, every single day I’m able to walk tall and strong, despite physical disability, is more than a blessing to me. I count it all joy, even through the really difficult days, knowing full well that all of my steps are nothing compared to Calvary.
I have a difficult time sleeping. Anyone who really knows me is aware of this fact. This, along with my ‘physical disability’ require me to have short accounts with everyone.
Just imagine the perfect balance of love, grace, justice and forgiveness. A relationship which would only seek the good, the pleasant and the holy. A relationship where pesky foxes never stole away joy or maintained records of wrongdoings.
I love Proverbs – I love the daily wisdom found within it’s pages; and Proverbs 13:12 is no exception. Like many scripture verses filled with Godly wisdom, I sought to meditate on everything … literally. So when I found Proverbs 13, I enjoyed it like all others – except when stopping on Proverbs 13:12. WOW! This was a new revelation and correct.
Daily I am pleasantly surprised and blown away as I’m reminded that I AM NOT God. So, my only response MUST be to be obedient to God’s Will — IF FOR NO OTHER REASON THEN BECAUSE I KNOW FULL WELL GOD HAS MUCH MORE FOR ME THAN I PROFESS FOR MYSELF.
OSWALD CHAMBERS, GODLY WARNINGS AND PRAISING OUR LORD THROUGH THE VALLEY OF DEATH AND MOUNTAINS OF SHEER GLORY.
“LORD HELP!” Lies of the enemy flood your mind as he reminds you of your shortcomings. Deeper and deeper you sink. Spiritual Grit? You don’t even have Spiritual Spit!
Many saints come to Christ in advanced years, like myself – 31 – thus our “might have been” is found in abundance and loosening chains of sin and death is difficult … unless we follow closely to our Lord Jesus. Take heart dear one, Jesus Christ meets you where are now NOW and He escorts both LION in the faith as well as the timid GAZELLE directly to the wellspring of Father God (YAWHEW).
Ladies, when you hear the knock at the door of your heart, be sure to open it only to the one true Lord – Jesus Christ – who lovingly escorts you to the throne of grace before Father God (YAHWEH). Never allow a foothold to Muhammad – who painfully escorts you to his own bed to defile you in bondage before the presence of his alter ego: ALLAH. And this is why ISLAM has liberal and progressive defenders. Any man who seeks nourishment for his anatomy above the loving heart of God is never worth your precious time. Deception is everywhere – read your Bible to best expose counterfeits.
If we are not heedful of the way the Spirit of God works in us, we will become spiritual hypocrites. We see where other folks are failing, and we turn our discernment into the gibe of criticism instead of into intercession on their behalf.
I’m going to do my best to answer this question as warmly and as accurately as possible from a personal, Christian perspective; for I believe one of my major giftings from God is possessing both a logical and emotional side to my personality. Thus, my heart seeks not to offend, but my mind likes to get to the point.
