Feeling Like You Don’t Belong?

Be thankful! Stick with the word and seek God always and understanding will be given to you. Here, in this scripture we have understanding as to why we might feel like we don’t belong.

1 John 3:1-3 KJV

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

[2] Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

[3] And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

TESTIFY! 

Does anyone ever have this battle going on within yourself?  You know, bad days at work, frustration.  Toss in a sprinkle of hot sauce and a whole bagful of the insanity we keep watching daily and I begin to get a little distraught.  I begin to feel great saddness.  Not over leaving this mess of a place but for all those who are so lost and clueless.  Then I get frustrated and mad and have a pity party.  I have thoughts in my head like ‘what kind of Christian are you?  Christians should be happy and joyous!  Maybe you aren’t.’  I ran across these verses and realized that we do get down.   1St Peter 1:2-7 My focusbis on 6 and 7 here.

6..We greatly rejoice  (about verse 5), though now for a SEASON,  IF NEED BE, ye are in HEAVINESS through manifold temptations:  

Of course then it goes on to say that the trial of our faith is…..
Trials are hard, tests are hard.  They are normally stressful and often an internal struggle.   Thank God for the hope that we have in Christ Jesus! Repent for my lousy attitude and pick myself up and get back in the race!  After all, we  are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses , let us lay aside every weight , and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and run the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Hebrews 12:2-2…
Hallelujah and praise the Lord God and Amen!  

Someone feel like they want to TESTIFY?   

I Need You – I Cannot Trust Even in my Own Heart

Jeremiah 17:9-10
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings
Psalm 33:13-15
The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.


COMMENTARY —-Knowing our own hearts isn’t really our strong suit, though we often think that it is. In fact, there are those who take pride in the fact that they know themselves well, some even reject counsel because they conclude that others cannot possibly know them well enough to give sound advice. Apart from God, we cannot possibly know our own hearts well enough to make choices that reflect our faith. Part of the process is learning how to accept that He knows better, will always know better, and to trust Him completely. If we are willing to face that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, our challenge becomes surrender. We are met with forgiveness, and empowered by grace to see our world differently, and cast aside the idols of our heart. Life cannot be more than when Jesus, the Master, is at the helm.

“Guest Speaker Major Amir Tsarfati: Bible Prophecy – God Gave It – Satan Hates It” 

Nothing Changes 

​In the book of Daniel we read how our enemies beef is really against God, Jesus Christ.   They hate that we believe the laws of our living God.   The principles we stand on, the foundation is what they despise. John 2:22 When therefore He was risen from the dead,  His disciples remembered that He had said this unto them; and they believed the SCRIPTURE,  and the word which Jesus had said.

Daniel 6:3-5 

<

p class=”text” style=”color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:medium;line-height:normal;”>Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.

By His Power

image

Have we ever known power like this?  How awesome is He!   Who?  My King and your King that is who!  Let’s praise the name of Jesus Christ!

Job 26:12-14

By his power he stilled the sea;
by his understanding he shattered Rahab.
By his wind the heavens were made fair;
his hand pierced the fleeing serpent.
Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways,
and how small a whisper do we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power who can understand?”

What Do You Believe?

All the same just different paths?
Many ways?  Well, what you believe can be the difference in life and death.
