Let’s Be Truthful

Many Christian’s have been conditioned to believe that trials and opposition comes right before God is getting ready to bless. But, may I offer this to you. God will allow trials and opposition to blow our way to get our attention as well. He uses them to correct us, humble us, and to cause us to repent.

The only outcome is forgiveness and restoration. I would rather be forgiving and restored than die and hear, “depart from me you worker of iniquity,” because I refused to admit, it’s me. Our hearts will deceive us but it’s the Word that will decipher our true motives and reveal our sins.

We are not always right nor or we always a victim. We hurt sometimes off of our own disobedience to God. It’s not everybody, it’s you. All suffering is not for Christ sake but it’s because of our own decisions to sin. Sometimes we must mourn over the fact that we disobeyed God and jumped the fence and played with the enemy. Truth hurts but it will set us free.

I Pray…

We are living in times of chaos, division, malicious behavior, and the list goes on. What saddens me the most is that this behavior is coming from those who proclaim Christ as their Savior.

I expect that behavior from the world but when it comes from those you worship with its enough to harden ones heart if not careful. Trying to be love in action causes some suffering and we know the present sufferings is nothing to the coming glory. But it sure gets hard trying to win the unchurched to Christ when all they see are worldly behaviors coming from the churched.

I pray that people would truly seek the face of God for themselves and allow God to speak to those stony places in their hearts. That’s for the church and the unchurched. The enemy sits back and laughs as people grow further apart because he knows we are powerful together but weakened when we are divided.

I pray are eyes become enlightened to the deeper things of God. Many of us have become dull in our spiritual senses and our discernment is nothing more than our feelings. Our ears can’t hear the voice of God for the voice of those we seek above him.

I pray we all get it together before God calls our number and it’s too late.
